Soybean and Corn Seed Supply Plentiful for 2014

first_img Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Feb 27, 2014 SHARE Facebook Twitter Soybean and Corn Seed Supply Plentiful for 2014 Home Indiana Agriculture News Soybean and Corn Seed Supply Plentiful for 2014center_img Corn and soybean farmers and their vendors gathered in San Antonio for Commodity Classic have lots of things to discuss this year and the switch from corn to beans because of prices among the topics. Bruce Kettler of Indiana based Beck’s Hybrids told HAT on the trade show floor that they’ve heard of some intentions to switch.“It’s not huge amounts, but a lot of our seed advisers are telling us that customers are still switching. I think they’re looking and watching the markets, trying to decide what they want to do. But in terms of seed availability that hasn’t affected our ability to be able to have either soybean varieties available. We’re still in very good shape on soybean variety availability. Nor on the other side on corn hybrids. So we had a great year in terms of seed production on corn and beans last year, quality is good – it’s actually excellent – so we’re going to be in good shape on seed availability for both corn and soybeans.”Kettler said if a farmer senses that intentions to shift start to accelerate, it would be smart to get orders in as soon as possible to ensure the right supply is available.“I think if they sense that’s going to happen, obviously being able to order it sooner is always better than later just in terms of getting it shipped, having it ready on the farm when the farmer is ready to go because we don’t know when planting season will start. But still we always expect to have plenty of seed available, even in season. We’ve got a good trend and can look at data from previous years to know what we expect to be ordered in season and available. Obviously just from a logistics standpoint being able to get it to the farm, it’s always good to have the orders ready and being able to have it in their shed so when they’re ready to plant, they can do that.”The last 5 to 10 years more farmers are planting corn and soybeans at the same time and he said they want to have their seed on hand ahead of time anyway for maximum planting flexibility.This year represents another record year of attendance with over 7,100 in Texas midway through the first day.

Press freedom, journalists’ safety must be pre-conditions for Afghan peace talks

first_imgMore than 30 media outlets have been attacked and destroyed during the same period and hundreds of threats have been made against journalists and media. The Taliban were responsible for most of these criminal actions and impunity is still the rule. News Such an undertaking would be a guarantee for journalists’ safety. Afghanistan’s journalists must not be discouraged by the Taliban threats and by the international community’s silence. Organisation “In our view, press freedom is a useful principle for peoples, as long as it does not question the principles of the sharia,” Mujahid said. “If, by means of freedom of expression, we encourage and promote development and progress in society, it is fine. But, for us, the priority continues to be Islam. In our view, it is impossible to implement freedom of expression as conceived in the West. This freedom of expression that despises and insults Islam is not permitted.” The experience of the past 17 years has confirmed that peace and security are the Afghan people’s main demands, but they cannot be achieved and safeguarded without free and independent media and guarantees for journalists’ safety. News The Russians are meanwhile also getting involved. India, Iran, China, Pakistan and five Central Asian countries including Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan met in Moscow on 9 November with a five-man Taliban delegation led by Sher Mohammad Abbas Stanikzai, a onetime foreign minister in Mullah Mohammed Omar’s Taliban government.  The delegation’s other members were all military and political officials during the darkest periods of Taliban rule in Afghanistan. According to the information obtained by RSF, there is concern in Afghanistan about this search for a peace deal with the Taliban that is being conducted at the Trump administration’s behest. “There must be no negotiating with the Taliban as long as they do not undertake to respect the humanitarian law defined in basic international treaties. As a prior condition for any talks with the Taliban, the international community must demand an explicit declaration and undertaking to respect international humanitarian law’s basic treaties, starting with the Geneva Conventions.” RFS thinks it is unacceptable, at this dangerous time, for democratic governments involved in Afghanistan and for the Afghan government itself not to demand an explicit undertaking to respect international humanitarian law’s basic treaties as a pre-condition for talks with the Taliban.

Afghanistan is ranked 118th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index. Afghan presidential spokesman Shah Hossein Mortazavwi told RSF: “We have no particular conditions for starting negotiations. But the president’s office has held consultative meetings with civil society about a peace deal, and citizens have insisted on the importance of preserving democratic gains, including free speech and press freedom. The government obviously undertakes to respect and guarantee these basic demands.” to go further Press freedom is simply non-existent in Afghanistan’s conflict zones, which have become “black holes” from which no news and information emerges.

A total of 66 journalists and media workers have been killed in connection with their work since 2001, including 16 foreign journalists (four German, two American, two French, two Italian, two Swedish, one Australian, one Canadian, one Norwegian and one British).

Reporter who wrote about Kremlin slush fund banned from reentering Russia

first_img December 18, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Reporter who wrote about Kremlin slush fund banned from reentering Russia June 2, 2021 Find out more BelarusEurope – Central Asia Organisation RSF at the Belarusian border: “The terrorist is the one who jails journalists and intimidates the public” The expulsion of Natalia Morar, a Moldovan journalist employed by the Moscow-based New Times weekly, on 16 December was a “flagrant press freedom violation,” Reporters Without Borders said today. Morar was denied entry on returning to Moscow from a press trip to Israel and was put on an early morning flight to the Moldovan capital of Chisinau.“Morar’s expulsion shows how open the authorities now are in their contempt for the press and their determination to sideline critical journalists,” the press freedom organisation said. “This is clear from her recent articles and the fact that it was almost certainly the FSB security service that ordered her expulsion, which was a political reprisal for her work as a journalist.”When Morar arrived at Moscow’s Domodedovo airport aboard a flight from Israel with a group of fellow journalists, passport control officers told her she was banned from entering Russia on FSB orders but refused to show her any document that said this. She subsequently learned that the ban was issued under article 27 of the immigration law, which permits the exclusion of a foreigner if deemed necessary to “preserve national defence, state security, public order or public health” or when “a foreign citizen is designated persona non grata in the Russian Federation.” Morar told Reporters Without Borders she spent the night confined to a room at the airport that is reserved for people awaiting expulsion. From there she was taken down a special corridor to a plane bound for Chisinau. Her identity papers, which had been taken from her, were given to the flight crew. It was only after her arrival in Moldova and interrogation by Moldovan immigration officials that her papers were returned to her.Morar said she was expelled because of her work as a journalist. An article by her in the 10 December issue of New Times, headlined “The Kremlin slush fund,” was probably the cause. “In it, I described in detail how the parliamentary elections were financed,” she said.New Times deputy editor Evgenia Albats said she thought Morar’s expulsion was “the government’s response to her reporting and the magazine’s work in general.” Russian Union of Journalists secretary-general Igor Yakovenko said that he shared this view and that “it is clear there was nothing legal about her expulsion.”Yakovenko added: “It is double standards and a classic political punishment when a person who lives in Moscow, works in a Moscow publication and is a professional journalist is expelled from Russia on the basis of some kind of unclear order from Lubyanka.”The FSB has refused to make any comment. “We welcome opening of criminal investigation in Lithuania in response to our complaint against Lukashenko” RSF says Follow the news on Belarus News Receive email alerts to go furthercenter_img News News RSF_en Help by sharing this information BelarusEurope – Central Asia May 27, 2021 Find out more News Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown May 28, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Sanad, who had been detained for 10 months on a charge of insulting the armed forces, was freed from Cairo’s Tora prison late in the afternoon.His release was reported on Twitter by his brother, Mark, who said he was weak and tired, and had gone home to rest.“The release of Sanad, the post-Mubarak era’s first prisoner of conscience, is wonderful news for both his family and for all those who campaigned on his behalf,” Reporters Without Borders said. “His release is timely, coming on the eve of the Egyptian revolution’s first anniversary. His only crime was to exercise the fundamental right to free expression, a right often flouted by the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces since the revolution.“The justice system must now overturn his conviction and declare him innocent. The relevant authorities must also be held accountable for his mistreatment and the harassment of his relatives. We will continue to monitor the situation in Egypt closely. On this very symbolic date, 25 January, we urge the authorities to stop using violence and judicial abuse to suppress all forms of criticism and to end the repeated arrests, interrogations and harassment of bloggers, netizens and journalists who criticize the Supreme Council’s record.”When Sanad’s brother, Mark, and members of his support committee went to Tora prison on the morning of 22 January to await his release, they were threatened and dispersed with violence by plainclothes policemen.

Michelle Carter, convicted in texting-suicide case, to be released for good behavior

first_imgDNY59/iStock(DARTMOUTH, Mass.) — Michelle Carter, the woman who sent texts to her boyfriend urging him to kill himself when they were both teenagers, is scheduled to be released from prison early due to good behavior.Carter, now 22, has been a “model inmate” at the Bristol County House of Correction in Dartmouth, Mass., Jonathan Darling, public information officer for the Bristol County Sheriff’s Office, told ABC News. Carter is expected to be released Thursday during jail business hours — between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.Inmates can earn “good time” — up to 10 days a month — by attending programs, having a job and avoiding disciplinary problems, Darling said. Carter would attend some vocational and educational programs and held a job serving meals in the cafeteria.In addition, she was “polite” to jail staff and volunteers and got along well with fellow inmates, Darling said.“We’ve had no problems with her at all,” he added.Carter was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2017 after texts she sent to her then-boyfriend, Conrad Roy, before he died by suicide in 2014, were deemed “reckless” by a Massachusetts juvenile court judge.Carter was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison with 15 months served and the rest suspended. She’ll remain on probation for five years after she’s released.Her case was the first in which someone was convicted of manslaughter for using his or her words.The Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal for Carter last week after her attorneys argued that a conviction based on her words alone was a violation of the First Amendment.In September, Carter was denied parole by the Massachusetts Parole Board, as members stated they were “troubled that Ms. Carter not only encouraged Mr. Conrad to take his own life, she actively prevented others from intervening in his suicide.”An attorney for Carter did not immediately provide comment to ABC News regarding her release.

Elmhurst Hospital workers gifted free vacations as reward for COVID-19 fight

first_imgCourtesy HyattBy: JOSHUA HOYOS, ABC News (NEW YORK) — The staff of Elmhurst Hospital in Queens, New York, got a well-deserved surprise Friday morning at its weekly staff call.ABC News got a first look as the heads of Hyatt Hotels Corporation and American Airlines joined the call to announce that the entire 4,000-person staff — doctors, nurses, facilities and food service workers — will be receiving a complimentary vacation as thanks for their service in the fight against COVID-19.“It’s beyond deeply meaningful to me,” said Mamie McIndoe, associate director of patient experience at Elmhurst Hospital, adding, “We worked very hard — tirelessly — the whole team for these seven weeks and it’s just amazing.”Cheers of “Elmhurst Strong” rang out as workers at the heart of New York City’s COVID-19 response were gifted trips to select destinations in the U.S. and the Caribbean.Elmhurst Hospital, part of the public NYC Health and Hospitals system increased the facilities’ intensive care unit capacity by 500% as it dealt with the pandemic. The hospital was called “the center of this crisis” by the city’s health department in late March. New York City has been the epicenter of the crisis in America with more than 19,600 confirmed and probable deaths.The hard-hit hospital’s front-line workers will be getting a three-night complimentary vacation for them and a loved one.“The amazing healthcare professionals at Elmhurst Hospital have cared for so many members of our collective community. In many ways they’ve put their lives on hold so that they could extend themselves to care for others,” Mark Hoplamazian, Hyatt president and CEO, told ABC News.Dr. Laura Iavicoli, who works in emergency medicine at the hospital, added, “Everybody cannot be more thankful. It is a beyond beyond amazing thing they have done for us.”“Every worker at Elmhurst has seen and experienced challenges many of us cannot imagine. They’ve given so much of themselves and chose to serve their community with care, compassion and equity for every patient,” Robert Isom, the president of American Airlines, said in a statement.This is the largest flight count ever provided to an organization by the airline, the company said.“I haven’t seen my daughter and family in seven weeks,” a staff member said, adding that he looked forward to the vacation after helping to fight through the virus.Hyatt has also announced that it will be extending the friends and family rate to health care workers worldwide through June 2021.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Late Holocene changes in cyanobacterial community structure in maritime Antarctic lakes

first_imgDespite the dominance of cyanobacteria in polar freshwater aquatic ecosystems, little is known about their past biodiversity and response to climate and environmental changes. We explored the use of light microscopy of microfossils, high performance liquid chromatography of the fossil pigment composition and denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis of fossil 16S rRNA genes to study past and present-day differences in cyanobacterial community structure in response to climate changes in two adjacent maritime Antarctic lakes with contrasting depths (4 and 26 m) and light climates. Light microscopy was of limited use because of degradation of cell structures. Fossil cyanobacterial pigment concentrations were below the detection limits of our method in several sediment samples in the deep lake, but abundant and diverse in the sediment core from the shallow pond, probably as a consequence of increased light availability and/or a more diverse and abundant benthic cyanobacterial flora. Total carotenoid and chlorophyll concentrations were highest in both lakes between ca. 2,950 and 1,800 cal yr BP, which coincides with the late Holocene climate optimum recognised elsewhere in maritime Antarctica. Cyanobacterial molecular diversity was higher in the top few centimeters of the sediments in both lakes. In deeper sediments, the taxonomic turnover of cyanobacteria appeared to be relatively small in response to past climate anomalies in both lakes, underscoring the broad tolerance of cyanobacteria to environmental variability. This, however, may in part be explained by the low taxonomic resolution obtained with the relatively conserved 16S rRNA gene and/or the preferential preservation of particular taxa. Our results highlight the potential of fossil DNA in lake sediments to study colonization and succession dynamics of lacustrine cyanobacteria and warrant further investigation of the factors that affect preservation of cyanobacterial DNA.last_img read more
