iOS 12 Controll PanelControl Panel is the same on an iPhne, accessed by swiping up from the bottom of the screen, while double clicking the Home button brings up the app switcher. on the iPad they used to be together on the same screen, but in iOS 12 they have been separated. Swiping up or double clicking the Home button displays the app switcher, while swiping down from the top right portion of the screen displays Control Panel. Swiping down from the middle or left top displays the Notification Center on both devices as it did in iOS 11.

Another year, another iOS!  iOS 12 showed up on iPhones and iPads Monday, and, as usual, I was quick to upgrade.  Apple claims "iOS 12 is designed to make your iPhone and iPad experience even faster, more responsive, and more delightful."  So I was anxious to see how fast my phone and pad would become, and how delighted I would actually be.   The new operating system is compatible with phones going back to the 5s and the iPad Air, so my iPhone 6 Plus and iPad mini are both compatible, and even with the 6th generation iPod Touch.

Some upgrades are so stunningly different that it feels like you have gotten a new device, even though you haven't.  That certainly raises the delight level.  But most iOS upgrades are less obvious, also a good thing because it means that for the most part you have no learning curve, so can continue to be productive without pause.  Less delightful, but, in the big picture it is what I have come to like best.

New York state's farms generated $4.8 billion in revenue in 2017, with 15 agricultural products ranked in the top five nationwide, according to a reportreleased today by State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli.

"Agriculture is a crucial piece of the state's economy, with farms contributing nearly $2.4 billion to the state's gross domestic product," DiNapoli said. "Our farmers continue to provide jobs and fresh, locally-sourced food, while also preserving open spaces. However, farmers face a number of challenges, from declining milk prices which can threaten family businesses, to tariffs and restrictions on immigrant workers."

Securities industry pretax profits totaled $13.7 billion in the first half of 2018, 11 percent higher than last year, according to a reportreleased today by New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli.

"Wall Street has profited every year since the end of the recession in 2009, and compensation last year reached its highest point since the financial crisis. The momentum from last year's dramatic rise in profits has carried into 2018 and the industry is on track for another good year absent a setback later in the year," DiNapoli said. "The securities industry is a major source of revenue for New York City and New York State, and is an important part of the city's economy. Ten years after Lehman Brothers' collapse it is clear that Wall St. does not need to return to the days of excessive risk-taking to enjoy rising profits."
