Growing business

Guillermo Martin, treasurer of the La Surena Cooperative, points out some of the crops being grown at the LSC last month.Eric Johnson/photodesk@austindailyherald.com There’s a field just south of Woodson Kindergarten Center. Crops of all types grow there, on about an acre of land. Hope also grows in that field, as six Latino farmers from the area banded together to form an agricultural cooperative to grow those crops this summer. Those six farmers were aided by the Latino Economic Development Center, a Minneapolis-based nonprofit which has started several similar agribusiness co-ops throughout the state. Yet Austin is getting a bit more attention than other communities. The LEDC looks to bring more business opportunities to Greater Minnesota through Austin, which will serve as the first outstate business center for the nonprofit. The move not only will help Latinos along the Interstate 90 corridor — it serves as another sign of Austin’s continued economic growth. “It clearly represents some substantial change and favorable opportunity,” local business expert George Brophy said.

Bastian Schweinsteiger: Graeme Souness explains why Bayern Munich allowed ...

Bastian Schweinsteiger left Bayern Munich and joined Manchester United this summer.(Getty)Liverpool legend Graeme Souness believes injuries to Bastian Schweinsteiger in the 2014/15 season forced Bayern Munich to let the midfielder join Manchester United.The German international, who turned 31 on Saturday (1 August), made ​​a switch to Old Trafford and signed a three-year deal with Louis van Gaal's side earlier in July. He started in 15 league games for the Bundesliga champions in his final season in Germany.Schweinsteiger picked up a knee injury in the pre-season match in the United States last summer. He missed the start of the previous season, before returning in November 2014. The former Liverpool manager doubts whether the midfielder will be a regular figure in the Red Devils' starting lineup in the 2015/16 campaign."I admire Schweinsteiger, but Bayern Munich do not sell their best players and there's a reason he has been allowed to leave," Souness told The Sunday Times ."He started just 15 Bundesliga games for them last year due to injuries. When you get to the wrong side of 30 and pick up muscle injuries on a regular basis, it's the beginning of the end.""He broke into the first team at Bayern when he was just 18, so there are a lot of miles on the clock. Will he improve United? Yes. Will he play in every game? Last season would suggest he did not want to.""I will be interested to see how the midfield pans out because there will be some big egos sitting on...

Bayer Leverkusen's five youngsters to watch in 2015-16

With the new Bundesliga season fast approaching, Bayer have high hopes for another successful season under manager Roger Schmidt. The team from Leverkusen secured a third place finish, with much of their success due to the performances of some of the squad’s youngest players. Outside90 takes a look at five young stars who can help make a difference in the new campaign Hakan Calhanoglu The 21-year-old Turkish international joined Leverkusen from Hamburg in last season’s summer transfer window and has already had a significant impact on the team’s performances. With an incredible eye for goal from dead-ball situations, Calhanoglu has gathered a reputation as one of the best free kick takers in the Bundesliga. Going into his second season for the Werkself, Calhanoglu will be key to any success Bayer achieve. The young midfielder played in 33 Bundesliga games last season, notching up 13 goals and 11 assists in all competitions. If he is to carry this form on into the upcoming season, Bayer will most definitely be a force to reckon with. Julian Brandt Julian Brandt is a player who has been on the radar of some very big clubs for a while now and is rated very highly by Leverkusen director of football Rudi Völler. Brandt played a total of 35 games last season, scoring four goals and producing five assists. For a 19 year old who only made 15 starts, it is an impressive contribution. Bran...  

Trickle-down politics: Drought could force real change among city, state leaders

It's something of a relief, if a mixed one, that the drought has surged into the role of the latest scourge to freak out California.It's a relief in the sense that it means that the California economy, so recently frighteningly rocky, has receded as the top-billed problem facing the state, even if the recovery is more patchy and vulnerable than anyone might wish.But it's mixed, of course, because the drought carries its own dangers, and the ultimate solution — rain — remains wholly out of the power of politicians or everyday Californians.Fresh signs arrived last week that Californians are taking the drought seriously — and taking it seriously across the state, which has not always been the case during past droughts. State water officials announced Thursday that urban water users had exceeded Gov. Jerry Brown's demand in June by trimming usage by 27%. That followed a May cutback of almost 29%, which, like June's figure, was above Brown's mandatory 25% cut.The other sign that residents are taking the state's water woes seriously was a new poll by the Public Policy Institute of California, which said that almost 6 in 10 people considered the drought the most important environmental issue facing California. A year ago, only 35% of Californians held the same view.The drought has set off alarms about the longer-term effects of global warming, the poll found. All told, almost 2 in 3 Californians said climate change had contributed to the current drought. It was...  

The “Mom Body” is like Dad Bod, but so much stronger

While the term Dad Bod went viral in March after a blog post by college student Mackenzie Pearson, the Internet exploded in a veritable landslide of opinion pieces debating its merits. Was the Dad Bod empowering? Insulting? Anti-feminist? Amid the hubbub, cartoonist Rebecca Roher quietly released “Mom Body,” a comic strip about what happens to a woman’s body during and after pregnancy. The attraction of the Dad Bod, according to Pearson, is that you know what you’re getting into: “We can get used to it before we date him, marry him, have three kids,” she wrote. Roher’s comic is about knowing what’s in store when it comes to reproduction—but more than that, it’s a celebration of the physical changes, both good and bad, that accompany pregnancy. “We don’t often think of the extreme changes women’s bodies go through every month to be able to reproduce human beings, let alone what happens when they’re actually making a baby,” she told the Huffington Post. Roher’s comic hit a nerve. “Mom Body” circulated widely online, and many women have written to thank Roher for her work, according to the Huffington Post. When asked about the relation of her work to the concept of the Dad Bod, Roher noted, “I support celebrating realistic body types for both men and women, but I think mom bodies are way more impressive and interesting to talk about.” Here’s to the Mom Bod! May it remain a symbol of the strength and beauty of mothers—new, old an...  

Ask a pediatrician: Mental health of student athletes as important as their ...

Based on a recent CDC report, about 1 out of every 5 children in the United States will experience some type of mental health disorder. Among teens, anxiety and depression are at epidemic proportions. Suicide is the second leading cause of death of people ages 15-24. After years of negligence these problems are finally getting the attention they deserve and progress is being made. In preparation for the start of school, my next three columns will feature problems, issues, ideas and solutions pertaining to the emotional health of our children. Today we will start with teen athletes. During July and August, the majority of what I do is clear student athletes for sports participation. I sometimes think I truly am the Pia of PIAA. In March, a document by a multidisciplinary team of physicians, coaches, teachers and trainers caused me to change slightly the way I approach these physicals. This team of professionals compiled data to show student athletes are more susceptible to mental health problems than other teens. "Many student athletes report higher levels of negative emotional states than non-student athlete adolescents," they report, "and have been identified as having higher incidence rates for sleep disturbances, loss of appetite, mood disturbances, short tempers, decreased interest in training and competition, and inability to concentrate." This increased incidence of psychological concerns has been attributed to many factors, including overtraining and burnout. Today's ...
