TORONTO , Jan. 1 (Xinhua) -- Hundreds of brave Torontonians on Thursday took an icy dip in Lake Ontario to kick off 2015 for a good reason.


Call them enthusiasts, call them crazy, but every year the Polar Bear Dip takes place in Canada on New Year's Day, when many take the occasion to indulge in some well-thought-of momentary insanity. In Toronto, the Toronto Polar Bear Club dip has entered its 10th year.


The dip took place at Toronto's Sunnyside Beach on Lake Ontario , one of North America's coldest lakes. More than 600 people arrived, in all states of disrepair and in costumes, bringing a carnival-like atmosphere to a surreal event.


The temperature with wind chill was minus 12 degrees Celsius. The lake was beyond cold with the shoreline ice-encrusted. This is where some Dutch courage had to be found. A reason to partake in this icy folly was to have fun, test endurance and raise money for charity.


"As with all things, there are some rules that you need to be aware of ," advised Keith Jolie, co-founder of the club.


"Preparing for the dip is easy. Bring water shoes or old running shoes you can wear in the water, or you'll be walking barefoot on the rocky lake bottom," he said.


"Also bring loose fitting warm clothes to put on right after the dip and wool socks. If your feet are warm, you'll be warm plus a blanket to stand on to get changed and a bunch of towels ," he added.


So why did these super-humans decide to brave the elements? May Loo gave an insight into why.


"This is my fifth or sixth year, so this is lots of fun. This is to help raise money for Habitat for Humanity. This is a really great cause, getting shelter for the homeless people," Loo told Xinhua.


Many supporters chimed in, claiming it was the best way to start 2015 and do some good. A trophy was presented to the highest fundraiser to mark the event's 10th anniversary. Toques and other memorabilia were given out as gifts.


"This is the 10th anniversary. We have the most people , over 600, the most money ever raised, over 70,000 dollars, and this is going to be the best ever dip ," said Ene Underwood, CEO of Habitat for Humanity.


Since 2005, the Toronto Polar Bear Club has hosted the event to raise money for Habitat for Humanity, which helps build simple, affordable and decent homes for families in need in the city. The club has so far raised over 200 ,000 Canadian dollars.


The event in Toronto is just one of many dips taking place across the country. One of the oldest and most established Polar Bear Dips takes place on Canada's west coast at Vancouver's English Bay, where they have been doing it since 1920.


On the periphery of Lake Ontario, other towns were also preparing for their Polar Bear swims. From Oakville in the west to Oshawa in the east, at least 80 miles of lake front have seen adventurous Canadians plunge into the polar waters to welcome Day 1 of 2015.

Agricultural Drones Market is expected to reach $ 15 billion by 2023

by Kalyansri · October 24, 2018


According to the new market research report by IndustryARC titled 鈥淎gricultural Drones Market By Rotor Type , By Battery Life, By Applications & Geography 鈥?Forecast (2018 – 2023)鈥? the market growth will be enhanced by the growing trends of automated farming practices worldwide.


North America will dominate the Agricultural Drones Market in the forecast period. This is due to the implementation of UAVs for enhanced productivity. The increasing awareness of precision agriculture for field mapping and crop scouting has compelled the farmers to use UAVs in the farming. The Asia Pacific will record the highest growth in the future due to the increasing technological access in the rural parts of the region and innovations in farming practices. The increased venture funding for the UAV manufacturers in Asia Pacific has also boosted the growth of the agricultural drone technology. Different companies in the region are manufacturing economical UAVs for more applications in the agricultural fields.


Selected Regulatory Analysis Done in the Full Report:
The field mapping application segment dominates the agricultural drones market. Benefits, such as, increasing the yields by analysing the crops will fuel the field mapping application segment. Drones can spray fertilizers without disturbing the soil fertility. This factor propels the growth of the crop scouting segment. Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI), with respect to crop scouting , contributes to the growth of the market. NDVI uses infrared sensors to monitor the progress of the crop and capture the data that cannot be captured by the human eye.


To access full report click here:

Hybrid UAVs will have the highest growth in the coming years due to their ability to cover long distances over the fields. Economical navigation and visualization, which includes inspection and mapping assist the farmers in monitoring their fields.


Selected Driving Factors Mentioned in the Full Report


鈥he Internet of Things is a launch pad for the drone sensors. This factor drives the demand for drone aerial spraying in the forecast period.


鈥he popularity of agricultural drone technology has increased among farmers due to its vast applications.


鈥uick availability of information and low-cost operations will enhance the growth of the UAV sprayer.


鈥he ability of the agro drones in monitoring farm and weather conditions will boost their growth in the future.


Key players of the Agricultural Drones Market
The key players which dominate the agricultural drones market include 3D Robotics, DJI, Precision Drones, Ageagle LLC , Agribotix LLC, and 10+. 3D Robotic.
