The US Department of Agriculture and the American Farm Bureau this week released data indicating that Thanksgiving foods, including turkeys, will hit all-time highs due to inflation.

The Farm Bureau estimated the average cost of the dinner at $ 49. The diet of turkeys – as well as chickens, pigs and cattle – contains corn which has increased steadily over the past two months. Turkey’s production fell after last year’s price drop during the great wave of COVID, confirming that commodity prices go through cycles of supply and demand.

Wheat for bread, pie crust and cookies is higher and coffee has almost doubled in the past 12 months. Gasoline prices have also increased dramatically throughout the year, making the trip to Grandma’s house even more expensive. Corn for December delivery was trading at $ 5.66 a bushel on Friday afternoon. Chicago wheat in December was trading at $ 7.69. Gasoline for December went to $ 2.37 per gallon, before taxes.

DC, Glasgow, Jackson Hole Watching Goods

Producers, investors and traders will be watching and listening intently to the news from Washington, DC as President Biden battles with Progressive Democrats over his proposed $ 1.85 trillion spending plan. The plan contains both social spending and climate change elements, and it needs to pass so House Democrats can address the public works bill that was passed in the Senate. The new “Build Back Better” proposal is about half the size the president originally proposed.

The climate crisis, weather-related storms, fires, droughts, floods and sustainability will be addressed at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, Scotland next week. It will be the world’s largest gathering of climatologists, agronomists, economists and others concerned with rising global temperatures. Leaders of participating countries need to consider their constituents, who tend to consider short-term costs and political concerns.

One of the topics that will gain attention is China’s reluctance to cut CO2 emissions and its recent expansion of coal-fired power plants in response to its slowing economy. As many as 60 percent of young people around the world describe themselves as “very worried” or “extremely worried” about climate change.

The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting on Nov. 3 in Jackson Hole could have surprises that could have an immediate impact on interest rates, housing, general inflation, the dollar and precious metals. Crude oil for December delivery was trading at $ 83.20 a barrel Friday at noon.

The highest inflation rate in more than ten years was announced Wednesday by the US Department of Labor. Natural gas, unleaded gasoline, fuel oil, rising wages, new cars, housing costs and groceries were among the factors that pushed the September consumer price index up by. 5.4% compared to last year’s inflation estimate.

Liquid fuels catch fire

Although all energy prices rose, liquid fuels, such as unleaded gasoline, diesel and crude oil delivered in November, were the main drivers. The November unleaded was up about 9 cents per gallon to $ 2.47 from last Friday’s close. Unleaded futures prices do not include taxes and freight charges.

Peddling to metal

Precious metals traders quickly spotted the trend and grabbed their share of the stock on Wednesday morning and continued to source on Thursday. Friday, however, saw the sell-off and strong rally collapse, leaving gold just $ 6 more on the week. Friday at noon, December gold was trading at $ 1,768, while December silver was trading at $ 23.34 an ounce.

Corn pops late, soy sags, bounces

The USDA on Tuesday estimated that the 2021 corn and bean crop size was larger than expected, stalling any strength seen in our agricultural sector. The wheat also withered and the pigs tumbled all week. Sugar, cocoa and orange juice also fell. Coffee has remained stable. Cattle were the only major agricultural market to rise.

Maize, wheat and beans, although late for the party, gained ground on Friday as healthy export numbers rebounded. Mexico and Costa Rica were big buyers of American corn, China and Egypt bought beans, and Ecuador was a customer for our soybean meal. Corn for December delivery was trading at $ 5.28 a bushel, November beans at $ 12.18, while Chicago’s December wheat was at $ 7.35.

Housing products supported by demand

Supply issues, transportation issues, and fires in California combined to drive up wood and copper dramatically all week. Copper is used throughout our industrial / commercial economy, but has seen additional demand from new housing and solar components. Although anticipated for years, rising long-term interest rates are finally becoming a threat to the housing boom.

In December, copper was trading at $ 4.72 per pound, and lumber prices returned $ 756 per thousand board feet.

Supply chain issues, growing consumer demand, soaring energy and transportation costs, and labor shortages are driving up consumer prices. Price tags are particularly visible in grocery stores and restaurants, with animal products costing the most.

Wholesale prices increased more than 8% between August 2020 and August 2021, according to the United States Department of Labor.

Other countries are also feeling the effects. Food in Russia increased by around 2% from August to September this year, and Albanians are protesting in the streets over expensive grocery stores. Inflation is also affecting the UK, where severe shortages of natural gas are pushing up prices.

A bushel of corn for delivery in December was trading at $ 5.30 Friday afternoon. December wheat brought in $ 7.33, while November beans brought in $ 12.43.

Green acres are the sellers’ market

With the increase in food demand, the price of agricultural land also increases. While the United States has a significant amount of land compared to other countries, less than a fifth of American land is suitable for agriculture.

According to the USDA, the average price per acre of farmland has increased 75% over the past 15 years. Farm real estate is particularly hot in the Midwest right now. Cropland in Iowa, for example, sells for between $ 13,000 and $ 15,000 an acre, with some farms selling for over $ 20,000 an acre.

This has caught the attention of investors, including foreign investors, who buy American properties. Meanwhile, all of this is also impacting the housing industry and the preservation of the wilderness as they cannot afford to shop.

Cotton blows higher

Food, fuel, and shelter have been in the headlines for months, but cotton – a source for clothing – has recently surged even larger than these markets. Cotton for December delivery this week hit $ 1.1648 per pound, the highest level in 10 years.

Bad weather – both too dry in some areas and now too wet at harvest time – has contributed to supply threats. Yet the main reason for the rally appears to be linked to President Donald Trump’s ban on wearing clothes in China’s cotton-growing area. For decades, China bought raw cotton from the United States, using cheaper labor, and then selling us clothes at prices we could never match our labor costs. higher work.

Since the ban, China’s import demand for US cotton has increased 83% year-over-year, according to the USDA. On Friday afternoon, December cotton was trading at $ 1.1046 per pound.

Wheat markets were boosted by Thursday’s US Department of Agriculture grain stocks report, which contained bullish numbers on wheat stocks, particularly relative to corn, soybeans and oats. .

The September 1 wheat stock was estimated at 1,780 bushels. Kansas City hard red winter wheat (used primarily for baking) gained the most, up nearly 34 cents per bushel. Soft Chicago Red Winter Wheat is used for cookies, cakes and pastries.

As of close on Friday, Chicago December wheat was up 30 cents a bushel from last week, while December corn traded at $ 5.40 this week and November beans at $ 12.50. Beans were actually down 33 cents from last Friday.

Pigs fly while cotton flies

In other agricultural markets, cotton reigned supreme, reaching $ 105.37 per 100 pounds. Heavenly Hogs gained an additional 5 cents a pound, with October Hogs trading at 92.05 cents a pound. Both were up on aggressive buying from China, although buying from Mexico also helped hogs, and buying from Turkey and Indonesia helped cotton.

Worries about weather conditions also played a role in the cotton boom. Forecast rains in Texas and Oklahoma could adversely affect cotton quality if expected rains arrive just before harvest.

Farmers watch Washington

The producers of commodities and those who make our food always keep a close watch on weather, exports, pests and transportation issues. Lately, they have added new dollar strength and the ongoing debates in the House and Senate to their watch list.

President Joe Biden on Thursday night signed a bill extending federal funding, which barely avoided a shutdown. Many agricultural service offices would have closed if this had not happened, delaying pandemic payments and other funds. By noon on Friday, Congress failed to reach agreement on the infrastructure bill.

Stock index futures take a dip

The financial world continues to worry about the ongoing debates in Washington over the debt ceiling, concerns that central banks might withdraw from stimulus measures, and that the pace of global economic activity may not be as high. stronger than expected.

The NASDAQ was the weakest of the three most traded stock indexes, while the S&P was the strongest. Friday afternoon, the December NASDAQ was trading at 14,682, while the S&P was at 4,321.

Chances are you’ve heard the term APK, but you probably have no idea what an APK file is. If this is your case, we can help.

In this article, you will learn what an APK file is, how to open and install an APK file. You will also learn whether it is safe to download APK files to your Android phone. Let’s get started.

What is an APK file

APK stands for Android Package Kit. This is the file format used by the Android operating system for distributing and installing applications.

APK Illustration. Gardy Philogene / Gotechtor

As you already know, Google Play Store is the official app store where you can download apps and games to your Android device.

When you download an app from the Play Store, you are essentially downloading an APK file. You just don’t see the name of the APK because Android handles everything behind the scenes.

APK files are useful when you want to download an app that is not available in the Google Play Store.

Components of an APK file

So now that you know what an APK file is, what about its components? What’s in an APK file?

APK file content
APK file content. Screenshot: Gardy Philogene / Gotechtor

An APK file contains all the components that an app needs for a successful installation on your phone. Below is a list of the most important files and directories.

  • AndroidManifest.xml – Contains application metadata such as name, version, permissions, etc.
  • assets – Contains all the assets of the application. Common asset types include arbitrary files such as text, XML, fonts, music, and video.
  • res – Directory with all the resources that are not compiled in resources.arsc like pictures.
  • META-INF – Directory with APK metadata, such as manifest file, signature and other resources.
  • lib – Compiled native libraries used by the application.
  • classes.dex – Java classes compiled in DEX file format to run on the device.
  • resources.arsc – File with precompiled resources, such as strings, colors or styles, used by the application.

How to install APK on Android

We have put together a great guide on how to install APK on Android. It covers 3 different methods. They are quick, straightforward, and easy to follow. Make sure you trust the source you are downloading your APK file from.

How to open an APK file

To open an APK file, you basically need to download it to your phone and then open it. The only downside is that Android by default does not allow installation of apps outside of the Play Store.

To do this, you must bypass these restrictions. Depending on your Android version, this step may be different.

Settings > Apps and notifications > Advanced > Special access to the application > Install unknown applications

If you want to view the contents of an APK file, you will need a Zip unzip toolsuch as 7Zip or WinRar. Alternatively, you can just change the name of the APK file extension to ZIP, and your computer will open it like any normal ZIP file.

Keep in mind that extracting an APK file does not mean that you can use it on your computer. Besides, you would need an Android emulator that allows you to run the Android operating system on your PC.

Why install APK on your Android phone

There are many reasons why you want to install APK files on your Android phone. Chances are, if you are reading this article, you are probably familiar with a few.

1. Install new versions of apps before the official release. Be careful, beta versions of apps are unstable and buggy and could pose a security threat to your device.

2. Whether it’s for violation of user privacy or geographic restriction, some apps are not available on the Play Store. If you want to use any of these apps, you will need to manually install the APK file on your phone.

3. Sometimes new updates can break things instead of fixing them. Going back to the previous version of an app can help you resolve issues you might have with its latest version.

Unfortunately, Android doesn’t allow you to downgrade your apps to a specific version if you don’t have root access on your phone. In case you are interested, here are all the benefits of rooting your Android phone.

This is where installing APK comes in handy. And APKMirror is one of the best options for safe and free Android APK downloads.

Conclude

We hope you learned something useful about APK today with this beginner’s guide. Remember to only download APK files from trusted and trusted sources. Otherwise, you may end up damaging your phone by installing corrupt APK file.

The mad oat boom continued this week, with oats climbing an unprecedented $ 0.60 per bushel compared to corn. It is counterintuitive for oats to be worth more than corn and is against economic laws. The adage “oats knows”, which is based on the historical tendency of oat price movements to precede movements of other grains, especially corn, makes the size and timing of the jump still attracting attention. more attention.

Few explanations have been accepted for the rally so far.

However, previous strong increases in oats have been associated with transportation problems in Canada (a large exporter with limited rail space), as well as drought and extreme heat.

Others have attributed it to a “short squeeze,” a type of panic buying that occurs when a major market player sells part of a product that they do not yet own. Those who are short are forced to seek higher prices to “cover” their short positions.

Short cuts often end with prices spiking up and down, forcing many traders to remain especially vigilant and cautious.

Oats for delivery in December traded at $ 5.70 a bushel on Friday afternoon, while December corn was trading at $ 5.27.

Oat demand

Oats, although they are a popular human grain, are mainly used as animal feed. Their high fiber, starch and protein content of 17% creates a nutritional combination for horses, cattle, sheep and poultry.

They are packed with manganese, phosphorus, B vitamins, antioxidants and soluble fiber, which lower cholesterol levels.

Their fat or oil content is higher than that of other grains and provides energy value for both livestock and humans.

Watch out for farmers on the road!

Agriculture is America’s most dangerous industry, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. And this time of year – the harvest season – is hectic. So, to raise awareness and celebrate the farmers who help put food on our tables, the White House has proclaimed a National Farm Safety and Health Week every year since 1944. One of the topics highlighted this year is rural road safety.

The National Agricultural Safety Education Center (NECAS) urges drivers to be careful on rural roads to help save lives. Safety suggestions include not using cell phones while driving, leaving plenty of room for farm equipment, using headlights, and wearing seat belts, even if you are driving a short distance.

Natural gas prices have nearly doubled in the past 12 months, reaching $ 5.06 per million British thermal units (BTUs) by early Friday morning. (One BTU is the amount of energy required to raise the temperature of one pound of water by one degree Fahrenheit.)

Prices haven’t been this high for over 12 years, and they could climb significantly higher in colder-than-usual winters. Gas, which is the primary source of home heating in the United States, is also used to generate electricity for manufacturing industrial products, chemicals, and fertilizers.

Supply shortages and increases in demand are responsible for the increase. Supply was threatened by production shutdowns in the Gulf due to Hurricane Ida and previous storms, just as total gas stored was significantly below average. Excessive heat in many areas has increased the use of gas to generate electricity for air conditioning.

Europe, meanwhile, is facing a serious shortage. Germany is negotiating to buy its gas from the new Russian pipeline. Russia is Europe’s largest gas supplier, which leaves many countries vulnerable to political issues with Putin. Natural gas for October delivery was trading at $ 4.97 per million BTUs on Friday.

Harvest report briefly sends grains lower

The highly anticipated report was viewed as “bearish,” but only pushed prices down for a few minutes after it was released. According to the USDA, this year’s corn crop size was estimated at 14.996 billion bushels, based on a yield of 176.3 bushels per acre. Soybean production was 4.374 billion, and this is based on a yield of 50.2 bushels per acre. Chinese maize production was lower than expected.

Beans fell sharply on the report but rallied at the close to trade 22 cents higher. Around the Chicago Board of Trade closing time, December corn was trading at $ 5.17 a bushel while November beans were trading at $ 12.86 and December wheat was trading at $ 6.91 the bushel.

Cup of Joe reduces cancer risk

Coffee not only helps start your day, but research from the British Medical Journal also suggests that drinking coffee reduces the risk of prostate cancer. Other studies have shown that drinking coffee also reduces cancers of the liver, intestines and breast. Arabica coffee futures for December delivery were trading at $ 1.88 a pound.

Supporters of the Seattle Compassion measure turned the tide on Tuesday morning and decided to appeal a judge’s decision to withdraw the homeless policy reform measure from the November poll.

Filed in the middle of the morning with Division 1 of the Washington Court of Appeals, the appeal requests a stay of the decision, noting: “If this Court does not grant a stay, it would therefore be prohibited for the citizens of Seattle. for two years to consider and pass a charter amendment addressing the homelessness crisis facing the citizens of Seattle this year, ”the file said.

Hours after receiving the appeal, the court accepted the request, set up a hearing panel and agreed to render a decision on the stay request by Friday.

A spokesperson for Compassion Seattle said the group had no choice but to appeal.

“As we said last Friday, we strongly disagree with Judge Catherine Shaffer’s decision to remove Charter Amendment 29, a decision that prevents Seattle voters from expressing their views on the continuing crisis. homeless people, ”the spokesperson said in a statement.

“The judge’s decision sparked a surge of support over the weekend from supporters who want us to appeal. We have decided that we must take this step to represent the interests of tens of thousands of voters who have signed petitions to put this amendment on the ballot.

Groups backing the initiative, which include the Downtown Seattle Association and the Seattle Chamber of Commerce, had initially decided to drop an appeal of Friday’s ruling, saying there was too little time to deliver the measure that prescribes how city hall is dealing with the homeless crisis in Seattle. by ballot.

Compassion Seattle is said to have forced the city to improve services, build 2,000 shelter units, and then remove camps from public spaces such as parks and sidewalks. King County Superior Court Judge Catherine Shaffer on Friday said the initiative went beyond the law of the state by making the city’s budget mandates through the intuitive charter process.

But over the weekend, supporters of the charter amendment and lawyers interested in the matter questioned Judge Shaffer’s rationale for removing the ballot measure in the first place.

In addition, supporters of Compassion Seattle also focused on the November election as another path to their end goal: to force a significant change in the way the city spends money to treat and house its homeless population. shelter.

The Seattle Compassion debate came at exactly the same time large employers such as Amazon began planning the return of some workers to the Seattle business district headquarters hit hard by the homelessness crisis.

In each of the city’s top poll races – mayor, two city council seats and the city attorney’s race – each candidate has already declared support or opposition to Compassion Seattle. The supporters may no longer have a charter amendment, but they now have a list of candidates.

“There really is a clear choice here,” said Jon Scholes, president and CEO of the Downtown Seattle Association, one of the measure’s major funders. “You have to change who’s in charge if you want a different outcome. “

To that end, some of the initiative’s funders, including the DSA and the Seattle Chamber of Commerce, are now turning their energy to the next election and with particular attention to candidates who support Compassion Seattle and those who don’t. not.

From a DSA perspective, that would mean former council chairman Bruce Harrell rather than current council chairman Lorena Gonzalez for mayor; Ann Davison on Nicole Thomas-Kennedy for the city attorney; Kenneth Wilson against Teresa Mosqueda for position 8 of the board and Sara Nelson against Nikkita Oliver for position 9.

“The problem (regarding roaming) is not going to go away,” Scholes said. “And it will only get worse if the status quo remains in place.”

It was the existing status quo that prompted Compassion Seattle to form in the first place. The ballot measure, which received 37,714 valid signatures to qualify for the November ballot, would have required the city to better fund mental health counseling and provide 2,000 emergency or permanent housing units within a period of time. ‘one year, starting in January 2022.

It would also have required the city to have clear settlements of parks and sidewalks after housing and services were put in place – a feature that opponents of the measure have called “criminalizing homelessness.”

“We are delighted that (Compassion Seattle) does not stand in the way of solutions that significantly address our housing crisis and do not punish people for trying to meet their basic needs such as shelter, sleep and food.” Washington Staff Lawyer Breanne Schuster said after King County Superior Court Judge Catherine Shaffer dismissed the ballot measure.

According to its supporters, the measure had been well received by the polls and had reached nearly 65% ​​approval.

But in the end, what reigned was not the support or opposition to specific policies for the homeless, but rather Judge Shaffer’s interpretation of how voters can and cannot set city fiscal policy by this type of electoral measure.

In her ruling, she said amendments to a city charter – which is essentially the constitution of a city – is not the place to make specific budget mandates like the initiative did. Instead, she wrote, it is the job of elected officials to make these monetary decisions.

In other words, don’t go after the constitution of the city; instead, pick new people to get the expenses you want.

While social media websites like Facebook and LinkedIn have made it incredibly easy for a user to upload image files, implementing such a feature in the background has been anything but easy. Prior to Java EE 7, developers struggled to implement a Servlet file upload component as it was a pretty sleazy business that required a lot of error-prone and bulky code.

Fortunately, version 3.1 of Servlet changed all that for developers having problems downloading Java files.

Java File Downloaders

You will need to perform the following steps to create a Java Servlet file upload component:

  1. Create a basic HTML or JSP file containing an HTML5 file input form element;
  2. From the form, call a Java servlet to handle the processing of the file on the server side;
  3. Code a Java servlet to handle the file upload process;
  4. Annotate the file upload servlet with the @MultipartConfig annotation;
  5. In the servlet, save the downloaded file to the server file system; and
  6. Return a response to the browser to indicate that the file was downloaded successfully.

HTML5 file input tags

The HTML5 file entry type tag can display a file picker in any modern browser. A programmer should include the input tag in an HTML5 form tag whose action attribute points to a file upload servlet and set the enclosing form’s enctype attribute to multipart / form-data. Then the developer needs to add a submit button and the HTML component required to upload a file from a browser to a Java servlet is complete.

Save the following code in a file named input.html and save it in the webapps folder of your Java web module.

<!DOCTYPE html> 
<html> 
<head> 
<title> Java File Upload Servlet Example </title> 
</head> 
<body>

  <form method="post" action="fileuploadservlet" enctype="multipart/form-data">
    <input type="file" name="file" />
    <input type="submit" value="Upload" />
  </form>

</body>
</html>

The file download servlet

The Java File Upload servlet will contain a doPost method to handle form submission. In this doPost method, the uploaded file will be processed in several parts. After the file is uploaded, the Java servlet saves each part in a file of the same name in the C: upload folder on the server file system.

The servlet provides multipart processing capabilities by adding the @MultipartConfig annotation to the start of the class. This annotation also allows the developer to set various file upload properties, such as maxFileSize, maxRequestSize, and fileSizeThreshold.

The full code for the file upload servlet looks like this:

package com.mcnz.web;
import java.io.*;
import javax.servlet.*;
import javax.servlet.http.*;
import javax.servlet.annotation.*;
/* The Java file upload Servlet example */

@WebServlet(name = "FileUploadServlet", urlPatterns = { "/fileuploadservlet" })
@MultipartConfig(
  fileSizeThreshold = 1024 * 1024 * 1, // 1 MB
  maxFileSize = 1024 * 1024 * 10,      // 10 MB
  maxRequestSize = 1024 * 1024 * 100   // 100 MB
)
public class FileUploadServlet extends HttpServlet {

  public void doPost(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException, IOException {

    /* Receive file uploaded to the Servlet from the HTML5 form */
    Part filePart = request.getPart("file");
    String fileName = filePart.getSubmittedFileName();
    for (Part part : request.getParts()) {
      part.write("C:upload" + fileName);
    }
    response.getWriter().print("The file uploaded sucessfully.");
  }

}

Run the sample Java Servlet file download

With the Java Servlet code, the application can be deployed to any Java application server that supports the Servlet specification 3.1 or later. In this example Java file download, the target server is Tomcat 9, although the latest JBoss, Jetty, WebSphere, or OpenLiberty servers will also work.

When the application runs, a file picker appears in the user’s browser. The user can then select a file on their computer and click on the “Upload” button to submit the file to the server. The Java File Upload servlet will then capture this file and store it in the C: uploads folder on the server.

An Ajax and Java file download component enables asynchronous file downloads from the browser.

Java and Ajax file downloads

If you want to get fancy and do an asynchronous file upload with Java, add the Ajax functionality by editing the HTML file. If you replace the markup in the HTML file with what is below, the request-response cycle will be asynchronous and the user will never have to leave the original page.

<!DOCTYPE html> 
<html> 
<head> 
<title> Java Ajax File Upload Example </title> 
</head> 
<body>
  <!-- HTML5 Input Form Elements -->
  <input id="ajaxfile" type="file"/> <br/>
  <button onclick="uploadFile()"> Upload </button>

  <!-- Ajax to Java File Upload Logic -->
  <script>
  async function uploadFile() {
    let formData = new FormData(); 
    formData.append("file", ajaxfile.files[0]);
    await fetch('fileuploadservlet', {
      method: "POST", 
      body: formData
    }); 
    alert('The file upload with Ajax and Java was a success!');
  }
  </script>
</body> 
</html>

File downloads with Java

The Servlet API 3.1 and the HTML5 specification has made it incredibly easy to add Java and Servlet file download functionality to modern web applications. If a user needs to upload images and documents to be managed on the server, it is quick and easy for a developer to solve the problem with a Java based web offering.

The following Maven POM file was used to create the sample Java Servlet file download:
