Year Round E15 Should be Approved Now By Andy Eubank – Sep 26, 2018 Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Energy Year Round E15 Should be Approved Now SHARE E15-updateIt’s time for the administration to approve year-round sale of E15, according to a key U.S. Senator involved in months of talks with the President and the Environmental Protection Agency on the issue. Iowa Republican Chuck Grassley told farm reporters on a weekly conference call, it’s time for the administration to act on E15.“If anybody at the White House is listening I’d say fish or cut bait,” he said. “Either do it or get off the pot.”Grassley has spent months fighting oil refiners, intent on driving down the price of ethanol compliance credits. And now that RIN prices are way down, he says E15 talk inside and outside the White House has grown more serious.“There seems to be more than the usual discussion of E15 twelve months out of the year, both within government agencies and also directly out of the White House. I happen to feel that people are thinking deeply about this being done and needs to be done and be done soon.”If President Trump announces a new biofuels policy soon, and reports say he will, it’s a move that would appease Midwest corn farmers hit by China’s tariff retaliation. A new farm bill might also help, but various House and Senate differences were preventing a deal in time to replace current farm law expiring Sunday.“A 5-year farm bill would bring a lot more certainty right now that farmers need than a one-year extension of the 2014 farm bill,” Grassley said. “There does seem to be a certain amount of pessimism. At least it isn’t going to be done by September 30th.”Getting the bill done on time was a goal of both Senate Ag Chair Pat Roberts and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, though most major farm programs, including crop insurance and crop payments will continue, and food stamps will be extended into December. Senator Roberts has conceded this week that a farm bill by the deadline is not likely, and it will be tough to see action completed on the farm bill before the November elections.Source: NAFB News Previous articleU.S., Japan, Agree to Negotiate Trade AgreementNext articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for September 27, 2018 Andy Eubank
News November 4, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Newspaper editor freed after three months, immediately re-arrested News News RSF_en February 22, 2021 Find out more ___________________________________Online newspaper editor detained on trumped-up charges08-05-2011Reporters Without Borders firmly condemns the detention of Mohammad Ekramul Haque, the owner and editor of the online newspaper, Sheershanews.com and the weekly Sheersha Kagoj, on apparently trumped-up charges of extortion. Arrested at his Dakha home at 4 a.m. on 31 July by plain-clothes police who showed no warrant, he was transferred to a prison on 3 August.Everything about the case is strange, including the fact that the original plaintiff’s identity is false. A certain Gias Uddin Talukder, claiming to be the owner of the Balaka travel agency, accused Haque of threatening to publish a negative report about the agency if Talukder refused to pay 26,000 dollars.But the Sheershanews.com staff reported in a 1 August press release that there is no travel agency of that name and accused to government of trying silence Haque because of his articles about corruption.Two other extortion complaints that have been brought against Haque are also regarded by local journalists as attempts to silence him. One of the complaints was filed on 1 August by Emdadul Haque, the secretary of a government employees’ association. The third complaint, filed by Mohammad Shahidul Islam, accuses Mohammad Ekramul Haque, his wife and the editor of another newspaper of blackmail.“We firmly condemn Mohammad Ekramul Haque’s indictment and imprisonment on false accusations,” Reporters Without Borders said. “His arrest is indicative of the lengths to which the authorities will go to eliminate a troublesome whistleblower on Bangladesh’s corruption problems.”Haque was blindfolded when he was taken on 31 July to Kalabagan police station by police officers, who also manhandled members of his family. After two days in police custody, he was taken before a Dakha court, which refused his request for release on bail. After two more days in police custody, he was transferred to prison on 3 August without any information being given about the length of time he is supposed to spend there.A charge of sexual harassment was brought against Haque last month but it was dropped after the alleged plaintiff did not turn up in court and later proved to be fictitious.The authorities rescinded the accreditation of Sheershanews.com and Sheersha Kagoj two weeks ago, while Haque was on a list of 10 journalists whose accreditation was suspended in a letter issued by the government’s Press Information Department on 14 July. Both Sheersha Kagoj, launched in 2003, and Sheershanews.com, launched in 2009, covered corruption.

We caution the judicial authorities against any attempt to prolong his detention indefinitely.”Haque was arrested at his Dhaka home on 31 July on a charge of extortion that was entirely fabricated, as both the identity and address of the plaintiff turned out to be false. While held, two other extortion complaints were brought against him which were nothing more than further attempts to silence him, local journalists say.The Dhaka high court’s 25 October order for Haque to be released on bail was carried out on 1 November. However, he was immediately re-arrested on the basis of a new complaint against him filed earlier that day at the Ramna police station. Taken into custody for an initial period of at least two days, he is reportedly being held at the Dhaka metropolitan police “Detective Branch,” which has been implicated in cases of torture and intimidation.The new complaint was filed by tax inspector Habibur Rahman, who has accused Haque of going to his office on 12 June and demanding monthly payments of 100,000 taka (955 euros) in return for not publishing articles accusing him of corruption. In his complaint, Rahman said that, because he was scared, he paid him 5,000 taka (46 euros) on the spot.Neither Sheershanews.com news nor Sheersha Kagoj is currently operational. Local journalists report that the authorities ordered them closed down.
February 26, 2021 Find out more RSF calls for the release of Bangladeshi journalist Rozina Islam, unfairly accused of espionage Help by sharing this information News RSF_en Bangladeshi reporter fatally shot by ruling party activists A Khulna police officer, Mofazzal Hossain, was arrested on 16 February for suspected collusion with armed Maoist militants who have carried out a number of bombings, including that at the city’s press club. Two days earlier, a police unit from the capital Dhaka surprised the officer in the company of Hasan, a known member of the armed group. He used the police officer’s gun to cover his escape but he was later arrested. As a result Mofazzal Hossain was suspended from duty, recalled to Dhaka and put under arrest.These new arrests follow revelations by Swadhin, an armed militant who was recently arrested in Khulna, who reportedly named those responsible for bomb attacks on journalists Humayun Kabir Balu, Sheikh Belaluddin Hamed and Dip Azad.———————————————————————9.02.2005Police officer fired for negligence following Khulna press club bombingA police officer assigned to the Sadar police station in Khulna was fired for “negligence” on 6 February, the day after the bombing at the Khulna press club in which four journalists were wounded, two seriously.The dismissal came the same day that journalists demonstrated in Khulna to demand the replacement of the city’s new police superintendent, Javed Patwari, and a thorough investigation into why a patrol that was supposed to be protecting the press club was withdrawn on the evening of the bombing.Alhaj Liaquat Ali, the editor of the Dainik Purbanchal, said during the demonstration that the failure to punish those responsible for the murders of journalists Manik Saha and Humayun Kabir Balu last year in Khulna had fostered a climate that permitted the 5 February bombing.Sheikh Belaluddin Ahmed, a correspondent for the daily Sangram, and Jahidul Islam, a photographer with the daily Jugantor, are still hospitalised and in a serious condition as a result of the injuries they sustained in the bombing. Ahmed is in the intensive care unit of a military hospital in Dhaka while Islam is in a clinic in Khulna._______________________________________________________07.02.2005Four journalists injured, two seriously, in bomb attack on Khulna Press ClubReporters Without Borders expressed outrage after four journalists were wounded, two very seriously, in a bomb attack against a press club in Khulna, western Bangladesh.Two of the journalists are critically ill in hospital. No group has admitted responsibility for the 5 February bombing.The worldwide press freedom organisation called on interior minister Lutfozzaman Babor to do everything possible to bring those responsible to justice and to protect journalists.The bomb went off at 9.30pm as the journalists were leaving the building. It had been placed in a bag and left on a moped belonging to Sheikh Belaluddin Ahmed, of the daily Sangram. It detonated as he approached the machine.Ahmed was very seriously injured and taken to Khulna hospital where his left hand and two fingers from his right hand had to be amputated. He also suffered a serious injury to his left eye and needed a major blood transfusion.He was moved to intensive care at a Dhaka hospital the following day and put on a ventilator. Doctors described his condition as “critical”.The other three casualties were: press club chairman Sheikh Abu Hasan, of the daily Prothom Alo, photographer for the daily Jugantor, Jahidul Islam and Rafiul Islam Tutul, reporter on the daily Loksomaj published in Jessore, in the southwest. All three journalists were treated in a Khulna clinic. Jahidul Islam is still seriously ill. The other two have been discharged from the clinic. The force of the explosion blew out several windows and destroyed some of the club fixtures. It took firefighters around 20 minutes to bring the blaze triggered by the bomb under control. to go further News News BangladeshAsia – Pacific Follow the news on Bangladesh Police in Khulna, who suspect armed Maoists are to blame, said the bomb was probably detonated by remote control. Two suspects, Hoby Sheikh and Khokon, have been arrested for questioning. In its letter to the interior minister, Reporters Without Borders said, “Your government is currently stepping up security for around 50 key figures, following a series of bombings. We urge you not to forget the Khulna region, where journalists are constantly the targets of extreme violence.” Since the murder, on 27 June 2004, of journalist Humayun Kabir Balu, a police patrol had been assigned to the Khulna press club. The new police superintendent, who visited the club on 29 January, promised to protect journalists there every day until 10pm. However on the evening of the bombing, not a single police officer was present.The Daily Star reported that 250 officers had been deployed to protect the press club and the offices of local newspapers.Khulna journalists held a protest march in reaction to the bombing on 6 February and ordered a news blackout. No local newspapers appeared on that day.One month before the press club bombing, Dip Azad, of the national daily Jugantor in Khulna, had a narrow escape when a home-made bomb was thrown at him but failed to detonate. From Dhaka, he told Reporters Without Borders, “It is no longer possible to work in Khulna. Several journalists are considering giving up journalism under pressure from their families.”Three journalists were murdered in this region in 2004.

Wilson called for the update that was presented to the council on Monday.The virus has killed more than 3,500 people, and 109,000 cases of the virus have been reported around the world, forced school closures and the cancellation of events.Caltech has canceled at least 10 events, and officials at the Rose Bowl and the Convention Center are disinfecting the venues several times a day.Officials at City Hall are no longer shaking hands and instead are bumping elbows.The Pasadena Unified School District is developing a virtual way to teach students if officials are forced to close schools.State officials released new guidelines for schools on Saturday.There are now 16 cases in Los Angeles County. On Monday, officials announced the first case of community spread in Los Angeles County, where officials cannot trace the incident back to a known source of the virus.“I have confidence that Huntington Memorial Hospital and our Public Health Department have been working together to ensure we are as prepared as possible to face whatever comes,” said District 2 Councilwoman Margaret McAustin.Gene Masuda said he was not told about the self-quarantine, but added things have been moving quickly.“They’re really trying to move fast on this and trying to stay ahead of it,” said Masuda. “And that’s why tonight we’re going to be having a resolution declaring the coronavirus health emergency. That’s the reason why we’re doing it.”Mayor Terry Tornek said he expected the self-quarantines to be discussed at tonight’s City Council meeting.“I’m sure we’ll discuss it with Dr. Goh tonight,” said Mayor Terry Tornek. “She’s going to make a presentation. Huntington Hospital is going to make a presentation. I’m sure this subject will be covered.”When asked if he knew about the locals that were asked to self-quarantine, Tornek said. “I don’t know about that.” Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Odessa High’s Jesus Montes (12) passes the ball in the first half of the Bronchos’ 2-1 loss to the Del Rio Rams, Tuesday night at Ratliff Stadium. WhatsApp Pinterest Local NewsEducation OC restructuring majors Previous articleGOOD NEWS: Inaugural Artisan Art Walk Art Show WinnersNext articleChurches get new locations admin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twitter Home Local News Education OC restructuring majors WhatsApp Facebook Noel earns award OCA top 2 were ESL students Facebook Pinterest Registration set for engineering camp By admin – June 9, 2018 Odessa CollegeHigher Education Coordinating BoardOdessa College has redesigned its majors so it makes more sense for students. The change officially takes effect in the fall.Vice President for Instruction Valerie Jones said the college kept running into instances where its metamajors were in one area, but the dean for the division was in a different group. This was seen as a chance to reorganize and divide subject areas into schools.The idea came about by looking at things from the student perspective and asking if there was a change that could be made that would fit better with the student experience.“Very often education at all levels everywhere does the reverse and figures out what’s going to make our process easier, then figure out how to adapt the students to it. I like that this transition is coming from this is what the students are experiencing, this is how the students are grouped, this is how the students are moving through our process and is there a way for us to change our structure to better fit to that?” Jones said.The schools include science, technology, engineering and math; business and industry; health sciences; public service and education; and arts and humanities. The transition to schools took effect June 1, Jones said.For students, Jones said schools will give them a different point of reference for identity.“Even as a new student, they can say I’m in the school of STEM. I’m in the school of Business and Industry. I do think that will be an attractive thing. It’s not its primary driver, but I think it will be an attractive thing for them,” she said.“The 60x30TX strategic plan for higher education encourages local creativity in the pursuit of the plan’s goals and targets. By reorganizing around schools that could be connected to meta-majors, Odessa College can encourage students to be better engaged. This leads to improved retention, persistence and graduation, thus fulfilling the goals of 60x30TX,” said Rex Peebles, assistant commissioner for academic quality and workforce, Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.Higher Education Commissioner Raymund Paredes said at a recent Texas Senate Higher Education Committee hearing that the state has seen a 3.9 percent increase in the number of students completing a certificate or degree from 2016 to 2017.This is “exactly the annual increase needed to achieve the 2030 goal. Regional and institutional efforts will need to continue to reach the statewide goal,” he said.Paredes added that setting regional targets is a compelling strategy for several reasons.“The first is that one size doesn’t fit all. Our 10 higher education regions identified on the www.60x30TX.com website differ by population growth and demographics and are home to different labor markets. Some are net importers of graduates. Others produce more completers than their labor markets can absorb. Some regions produce many certificates, others many master’s degrees. When it comes to the 60x30TX goals, regions are starting in very different places. Institutions within those regions differ dramatically by mission, funding, and student population, just to name a few,” Paredes said in the statement.On a related topic, one of Odessa College’s next goals is to reach an enrollment of 10,000 students. Jones said the initiative is in the early stages, but it’s been energizing.When an objective that large is set, Jones said it compels people to think bigger and differently.“… We have to think bigger about how we’re going to reach the parts of the population that haven’t been served by higher education. It’s been a lot of fun to hear from the community and the whole college body as we bring everybody together to think about the big stuff that may help us connect better … ,” Jones said.Part of the process, Jones said, is how OC connects with future students and adults. It’s also about reaching people who have not seen higher education as an option, or even something available to them.“… It’s a passion of mine and many of us to reach that part of our community because the opportunities for the next 20, 30 years of employment are going to depend on them having those credentials of some sort and we might not see it today. If I’m that person who is dreaming of what my next opportunities are, I might look around and say I’m OK. That doesn’t mean my good today is going to be my good 20 years from now. … What experience, what credential I need to have so 20 years from now, I’m still good as things continue to shift,” Jones said.Jones noted that cost is a common obstacle to higher education, but community colleges are less expensive that four-year universities.Financial aid, grants and scholarships also are available, she said. Plus OC offers the first class free.“We’ve done a tremendous job over the last decade of growing our foundation and scholarships available through that. On top of that you have outside scholarship opportunities …” Jones said. Twitter Creamy Fruit SaladFoolproof Roasted Pork TenderloinTexas Fried ChickenPowered By 10 Sec Mama’s Deviled Eggs NextStay
