Muzaffarnagar (UP): A court here on Monday sent a case in connection with the killing of a man in Kawal village of the district, which led to the 2013 riots in Uttar Pradesh, to the sessions court for hearing on July 1.Chief Judicial Magistrate Rakesh Kumar Gautem also directed the accused to appear before the sessions court on July 1. The case was filed on the basis of a complaint by father of deceased Shahnawaz against six accused. Six accused — identified as Ravinder Singh, Prahlad, Bishan Singh, Tendu, Devender and Jitender — allegedly killed Shahnawaz at Kawal village in Jansath area on August 27, 2013.

The five are among the six accused who were facing arrest warrants in connection with the Shahnawaz murder case. The court had ordered that the property of all the six accused be attached after they failed to surrender before it despite repeated arrest warrants. Shahnawaz’s death and that of two other youths, identified as Gaurav Sachin, in another incident were said to be the trigger behind the communal clashes in Muzaffarnagar and adjoining areas in August and September 2013, which claimed 60 lives and displaced over 40,000 people.
In an interview with UN Radio, Ms. Robinson emphasized that El Niño is a normal weather pattern that has affected countries quite severely, and is now aggravated by climate change. “The effect is overwhelming for countries. They are suffering huge drought and, in some cases, terrible flooding that has destroyed the capacity to plant and to sow and to harvest,” she said.Invitation aimed at accelerating entry into force of Paris Agreement In related news today, the Secretary-General invited world leaders to a special event on 21 September to deposit their instruments of ratification, acceptance, approval or accession to the Paris Agreement on climate change. The event will also provide an opportunity for other countries to publicly commit to joining or ratifying the agreement before the end of 2016. The Paris Agreement, adopted by 195 parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) this past December in Paris, calls on countries to combat climate change and to accelerate and intensify the actions and investments needed for a sustainable low carbon future. In addition, Executive Director of the World Food Programme (WFP), Ertharin Cousin, is currently in Malawi to assess the impact of the El Niño-induced drought and to appeal on behalf of the 6.5 million people in need of urgent assistance. Some 18 million people in the region’s hardest-hit countries (Lesotho, Madagascar, Mozambique, Swaziland, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and Malawi) are in need of emergency food support – a number that could surge to 33 million as the inter-harvest “lean” season progresses according to the latest Southern African Development Community (SADC) projections. WFP, however, has secured only a quarter of the $549 million needed for its relief operations until April 2017 in the seven priority drought-hit countries. “The challenges to our response go far beyond humanitarian action,” the UN chief emphasized, adding that for many of the poorest and most vulnerable, extreme weather events linked to climate change could put the achievement of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development at risk. “This unprecedented challenge requires unprecedented changes in the way we work. It is crucial that we learn the lessons of this El Niño. We must prevent, prepare for and mitigate the effects of climate change, which has the greatest impact on those who have least responsibility for causing it,” the Secretary-General said.We must prevent, prepare for and mitigate the effects of climate change, which has the greatest impact on those who have least responsibility for causing it.Mr. Ban highlighted that working together to reduce disaster risk was an important thread running through last year’s political achievements, including the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, the 2030 Agenda and the Paris Agreement on climate change. “This new way of working presents a challenge, but also provides an opportunity for progress,” the Secretary-General said, noting that many governments have shown great leadership in driving a coherent and effective emergency response to El Niño, allocating significant resources of their own, while others have been able to reduce risks and mitigate impacts so as not to require international assistance. Still others, the UN chief said, have benefited from international solidarity expressed through resources from the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF), which has provided $120 million to humanitarian partners for life-saving activities linked to El Niño in 19 countries. “We must learn from these successful practices. We must scale up our response and share the burden of climate change more equitably, demonstrating greater solidarity with those in need,” Mr. Ban said, calling on affected governments, donors, civil society, development and humanitarian actors, and private-sector partners to support the efforts of his two Special Envoys for El Niño and Climate, Mary Robinson and Macharia Kamau, in raising awareness and bringing greater resources to bear.

While the El Niño event has returned to a neutral phase, its impacts on food security, livelihoods, health, nutrition, water and sanitation are likely to grow throughout this year. The meeting also advocated for a proactive and preventive approach to a possible La Niña event later this year and future climate events.Increased funding needed for hardest-hit countries In his remarks, the Secretary-General noted that he had personally witnessed the effects of El Niño in Ethiopia – where the phenomenon has affected millions of people – as well as during trips to Malawi, South Africa, Kenya and Rwanda. In particular, he recalled that two days ago, he met with the Foreign Minister of Malawi and a team of UN agency representatives – including Kyung-Wha Kang, Assistant Secretary-General of OCHA, who was in the country on a fact-finding mission – and they had all expressed very serious concern about what is happening in the country.

People and communities cannot escape poverty or banish hunger if their resources are wiped out by floods, storms or droughts every few years,” the Secretary-General said at a high-level event at the UN Headquarters in New York on Responding to the Impacts of and Mitigating Recurring Climate Risks, organized by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA). “Even when malnutrition is treated and children survive, they can be affected for life by stunting and impaired development. This has serious implications for education, the ability of people to make a living, and the opportunities for societies and nations to prosper and develop in a sustainable way,” he added. El Niño is the term used to describe the warming of the central to eastern tropical Pacific that occurs, on average, every three to seven years. It raises sea surface temperatures and impacts weather systems around the globe so that some places receive more rain while others receive none at all, often in a reversal of their usual weather pattern.

TORONTO – Near the tail-end of the Toronto Raptors‘ practice Sunday, Fred VanVleet was spotted taking three-pointers that were oddly off the mark.Stationed along the left wing, VanVleet was taking passes from teammate Danny Green and letting fly shot after shot, putting his trademark side spin on the ball that normally always softly lands in the bottom of the net in these situations, only to see it hit iron more often than not.This usually wouldn’t mean anything. But when a player takes an elbow to the head, has to get stitched up because he’s bleeding from the eye and loses a tooth to boot like what happened to VanVleet in Game 4 of the NBA Finals, these are the nit-picky things that will suddenly stand out like the Bat Signal shining across the Gotham skyline.But when VanVleet got off the court and entered a sea of microphones, cameras and tape recorders about 45 minutes later, he settled things down with his calm and cool demeanour, like he always does.“It’s a little blurry,” said VanVleet of his right eye, under-which a distinctive bandage could be seen masking the seven stitches he was forced to receive to stop it from bleeding after Shaun Livingston’s elbow drove directly into it on Friday. “My eyes water at random points, but it’s not too bad. I’ve actually had worse so I’m doing alright.”Welcome news for the Raptors who have relied on VanVleet’s timely and accurate shooting from deep throughout these Finals with the Golden State Warriors.Better yet for Toronto, the worst-case scenario involving VanVleet was avoided.“Nope, no symptoms, no concussion, so you guys can leave that alone,” he said. “We have great doctors and great staff and the NBA is great and they follow a protocol.”This is a huge sigh of relief for the Raptors because of the job he’s done on Warriors superstar Stephen Curry.Over the course of these Finals, no Raptors defender has seen Curry nearly as much as the 132 possessions VanVleet has and in that time VanVleet has given Curry fits, forcing him to 8-of-26 shooting overall and 3-for-14 from three-point range.The scary potential of a concussion loomed large on VanVleet but thankfully for him and the Raptors that won’t be an issue anymore meaning Toronto will have no issues unleashing its pit bull against Golden State’s two-time MVP, and the only thing VanVleet will have to worry about is his new grin.“I’m not gonna smile for you or show you, but I’m back to normal,” VanVleet said, adding that he got it fixed after receiving a CT scan to check for any additional bone damage as soon as he landed back in Toronto.He’s wearing a mouthguard now, something he’s not too enthused about, but it’s whatever it takes to keep him out there because VanVleet knows the kind of task that’s in front of him.With the Raptors up 3-1 and a chance to capture their first-ever championship on Monday, they now, for the first time all Finals, face the weight of expectation. Going from underdog to suddenly being expected to win can be a jarring thing for teams but this is something VanVleet has actually gone through before.During his freshman and sophomore years at Wichita State, VanVleet was on teams that made the Final Four and then went undefeated. In both cases, the Shockers fell short of their ultimate goal, but there was a lesson in there that VanVleet learned that he’s now applying to the situation he finds himself in with the Raptors.“At the end of the day all of that stuff is performance based,” said VanVleet of the narrative of dealing with expectation. “[If] I tell you we’re locked in, I tell you all the right answers and we go out there and we lay an egg then you say we weren’t focused and the moment is too big. If I tell you something else and we go out there and we play our butts off and win then we were the most laser-like focused and locked in that we could be. So it’s all performance based.”Yes, no matter how VanVleet has looked – swollen eye, missing tooth, missing practice jumpers – performance really is all that matters, and so far he’s performed at a championship-calibre level.Expect more of the same Monday night.

The New York Times on Wednesday published an op-ed with the headline “Don’t Let Statistics Ruin Baseball.” Some of the baseball nuts at FiveThirtyEight staff couldn’t contain themselves after reading it. Here’s an edited transcript of our Slack conversation.cwick: This is the kind of thing that gets our attention around here. A sample of the op-ed: “Thanks to ‘Moneyball’ and stats-driven fantasy leagues, advanced statistics have changed how fans think about the game. On the whole that’s a positive trend — but not when the numbers begin to eclipse a more nuanced appreciation of baseball.” Nate, you created FiveThirtyEight for all sorts of reasons, but surely it has no more sacred duty than to respond to this piece. What’s a sabermetrician to think about this op-ed?natesilver: One litmus test for any writer: Does he know his subject? Steve Kettmann might know a lot about baseball, but he doesn’t know very much about baseball statistics. For instance, he describes how wins above replacement compares a player against “some hypothetical median player, the ‘replacement.’” Actually, it compares him against a replacement-level player, who is way worse than the median major leaguer.He doesn’t describe fielding independent pitching (FIP) correctly. Its goal is not to provide a “broader measure of a pitcher’s performance than the traditional E.R.A.” Rather, it’s to measure how effective a pitcher is independent of his defense (fielding) — as its name implies!On the other hand, he favorably cites “a previously obscure statistic: batting average against relievers.” That statistic hasn’t become much less obscure — it’s not something that we stat geeks are talking about very much. And that’s because we know it’s probably just random noise. Batting average is noisy enough, let alone when you cut the sample size by two-thirds.The point being, the better advanced statistics are all about deepening our understanding of how the game is played. If a pitcher has a 2.85 ERA, is he really good — or is it the defense behind him? That’s what FIP can tell us (although there are better ways now to account for the impact of positional defense).By contrast, when statistics were cited in, say, the 1980s or 1990s, they were mostly just trivial crap. “Claudell Washington is 6-for-25 on cloudy days against left-handed relief pitchers with runners in scoring position.” Shit like that. Totally useless and distracting. And there were dozens of them on every broadcast.carl: Nate’s response shows how these debates are always about which numbers people arbitrarily approve and which ones they don’t. You can’t have baseball without numbers. How would you count strikes, outs, runs and wins?cwick: Right, there have always been stats in the game because the game is such a structured one. Baseball happens in discrete steps. There’s an action and there’s an outcome. Pitcher throws, it’s either a ball, a strike, a foul, a hit, or an out. (Or some other possibility I’ve overlooked.) That creates stats that are robust and complete. Stats can’t help but bubble up and out of those.benm: As I understand it, he is all for statistical advancement of baseball to enhance understanding of the game and quality of competition and other more utility-based purposes, he just objects to the obsession with statistics from an aesthetic perspective. He compares it to listening to a symphony: There’s nothing wrong with understanding how the tuba works or how many clarinets you need, but when you’re there in the audience, you should just let the music wash over you and appreciate it.I find watching baseball tedious in part because I feel like nothing I’m seeing in front of me matters — and I can trace this back to when I was young and learned the factoid that the difference between a good hitter and a bad hitter was “one hit a week.” So if I had a more robust appreciation of the non-statistical aesthetic quality of baseball, it might make it easier to enjoy a game.But the other way it cuts is that, without statistics, I probably wouldn’t be interested in baseball at all. Like many people, my fandom started out with baseball cards. Fast-forward 30 years, and while I’m not as nutty about the game as some of my colleagues, I still take time to follow the fascinating statistical developments in the league, and can appreciate Mike Trout or Billy Beane’s greatness in a way that has something of an aesthetic aspect for me.carl: Like with so many of these pieces, the headline and opening are more radical than the author seems to really be. For example, this is pretty hard to argue with, unless you’re a straw man: “There is a risk that numbers become an end in themselves, and arcane stats proliferate. A good rule of thumb is that the more a stat relies on abstraction, the less likely it’s going to be consistently useful to a wide audience.”rarthur: I agree with @carl. These pieces always boil down to, “This is the exact, right, perfect amount of numeric detail that should be permitted in the game.” And it’s never clear why we should have stopped at batting average/RBIs/saves, as opposed to moving on to more accurate and more descriptive statistics.carl: The related point is that the stats that seem “traditional” (to use his word) just have to do with familiarity, not how arcane they are. The definitions of saves — which itself seemed radical to some when it was introduced — RBIs and pitcher wins are arcane and arbitrary.cwick: @carl, I hear you, but I think there are some passages in here that are pernicious in their misinterpretation of sabermetrics. “When it comes to watching a matchup of, say, the Mets pitcher Matt Harvey and Giancarlo Stanton of the Miami Marlins, statistical analysis is about as helpful in deepening an appreciation of the human drama unfolding before us as it would be for a Pavarotti aria.” PITCHf/x data and Stanton’s BABIP have a ton to tell us about that matchupcarl: @cwick, that’s only pernicious if we assume that statistical analysis can’t help us appreciate an aria. The jury is out on that. Where’s opera’s Bill James?cwick: @carl that’s a story for you!ollie: You’ve all nailed the statistical points. I’d like to mention something else. Kettmann seems very concerned with our attention spans. Let’s take his analogy of music, and going to the symphony to hear Mahler’s Ninth. I need to pay attention. To clear my mind. How would I enjoy it otherwise? But if I knew that disease plagued Mahler’s mother and 13 siblings, or that he had an abusive father, or that he was obsessed with death, and that the last line of that symphony’s score reads “ersterbend” — German for “dying away” — I’m going to appreciate the piece of music more, not less. This echoes how I feel watching Anthony Rizzo bat knowing that he had an OPS+ of 163 against lefties last year, or whatever. Statistics are a complement, not a substitute.rarthur: Right, @ollie. Above and beyond that, I would never presume to tell a music theorist that it was incorrect to be thinking about notes and scales while listening to an aria. You can enjoy it the way you want to. If you prefer not to know the statistical underpinnings of baseball, no one is forcing you to learn them.natesilver: @rarthur: Actually the music theorists are pretty damned interesting when you corner them at a party!carl: @ollie and @rarthur — totally agree. His implication is that quantitative context is less valuable — less artistic, less charming — than qualitative context. That’s personal taste.cwick: Well, Kettmann’s point is that it’s becoming increasingly difficult not to pay attention to the stats, @rarthur. Which I sympathize with — I’m the words guy at a numbers site! But his argument comes across as a Luddite’s. “The art of hitting a baseball starts with emptying the mind. As Jonathan Fader, a psychologist who works with Mets players, told me: ‘Essentially, what we’re trying to do in sports psychology is helping people to not think.’ Fans and writers need to adopt a similar attitude.”natesilver: Some of this is just plain old anti-intellectualism. Us nerds want to understand how the world works. Statistics are one way to do that, but not the only one. @carl, you’ll remember when we were at the US Open last year and I was constantly peppering you with tennis questions. Some of them were stats-y questions and some weren’t. I just wanted to learn more about tennis. I’m curious about the world, both as a “fan” and as a journalist.carl: Yeah, @natesilver, I think we nerds are fine with people who don’t want to understand the sport or opera or whatever they’re watching. They should be fine with those who do. We can all sit side by side and enjoy the game. Except for those terrible tweeting/texting/Googling press-box reporters.ollie: Or the guy on his phone at the symphony, @carl.carl: @ollie probably checking operareference.com.carl: Which is available. We should buy it before Sean Forman does.cwick: opera-reference.com, obvs. (God, that might be the nerdiest joke I’ve ever made.)carl: Also available.benm: I know that a musician may appreciate Bach in a way that I can’t. But I think the visceral experience is still very immediate for them, so I don’t think that would be inconsistent with Kettman’s argument. I presume that in his ideal world, we all understand these stats but don’t let them be the main thing we appreciate when watching. They should be more like butter or MSG than like steak or fish.natesilver: @carl: I’m totally fine with the dude who just goes to the game with his friends and drinks about 5 beers and cheers when the home team hits a home run. Sometimes that’s me! I’m NOT fine with journalists who are incurious about the world, however.david: I think Ben hit on something important. This argument — and I can understand both sides — reflects opposing approaches to life. Some people appreciate these events — whether Mahler, Springsteen, or baseball — at the purely sensual, aesthetic level, and don’t see any need for their cerebral cortex to interfere in that appreciation. Others need to find deeper patterns and hidden movement in everything they see, and those patterns are usually there to be found. Each approach is legitimate, but the two sides will never really understand each other.rarthur: I would challenge the idea that the two sides can’t understand each other. At its best, baseball (or perhaps sports more generally) bridges the gap and allows you to experience both a statistics-driven and purely aesthetic enjoyment. In the World Series Game 7 last year, as Madison Bumgarner pitched inning after inning, I was simultaneously trying to calculate whether it was a good idea to bring him back out and also just enjoying how awesome, how calm, how controlled he was. And I was thinking about him pitching up in the zone, and about how Sal Perez was tired and injured, and everything all at once.natesilver: On one level, I agree with Kettmann about the aesthetics of actually going to a sporting event. Some of the scoreboards — like the new Jumbotron at Wrigley — are overkill. They rarely abide by good principles of information design, which usually means clean, somewhat minimalist presentations that fit naturally into their environments.carl: My ideal world would not be one in which I or Kettman or anyone else decides how we should appreciate baseball, music or anything else. I think in our current, suboptimal world, there are plenty of ways for him and for like-minded fans to avoid the statistical distractions he dislikes — apparently, according to @natesilver, by avoiding Wrigley.natesilver: @carl: It’s really about distractions in general, and not statistical distractions. I like going to soccer games because it’s a very clean experience. At the World Cup at Maracanã in Rio, there weren’t a lot of statistics. But there also weren’t a lot of distracting PA announcements, or cheap gimmicks, or anything else.So give me a clean experience at the ballpark — I really don’t need to see Bumgarner’s FIP on the center field scoreboard. But also give me a fast Wi-Fi connection in case I’m in “curious nerd” mode and have something I want to look up.cwick: @natesilver’s prescription for baseball’s future: Wi-Fi in stadiums Bonus Podcast: Nate Silver Talks with Steve KettmannAudio Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/natesilver_stevekettmann.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.This conversation will also air in this week’s episode of “Hot Takedown” — FiveThirtyEight’s new sports podcast. We reached out to Steve Kettmann for a response to our conversation. It’s below:Thanks for seeking me out and asking me to offer a response. I see far more common ground between the view I articulated in the piece and your arguments than I might have expected. For example, I loved the discussion of how knowing more about Mahler only adds to the experience of listening to the music — but I’d point out that usually you read the program (and the biography) before the lights go down and the music starts. My piece does not argue against having statistical analysis in mind during the watching of a game; it argues against not even bothering to watch the game, because the action on the field is considered irrelevant. Benm states directly he finds “watching baseball tedious in part because I feel like nothing I’m seeing in front of me matters.” Wow! We can all enjoy baseball, even with differing perspectives on how best to understand it, but anyone who says they find watching events on the field to be “tedious” to me does not really love baseball, they love the playground of numbers the game provides. Are the players just numbers to you? That’s seriously what you’d like people to believe? I don’t buy it. My reference to Jonathan Fader and the mental side of baseball is characterized as anti-intellectual, because I talk about the importance of “not thinking.” It does not bother me if the esteemed crew responding to my op-ed has other areas of interest than the question of how baseball players do what they do, but in fact the mental side of performance is the big uncovered story in baseball and in sports. More and more teams, in all sports, are hiring mental-strength coaches and counselors. Ignore all of this, if you like, but others might find it thought-provoking.Nate Silver accuses me of being “incurious about the world” for daring to question how much is too much. I was an Oakland A’s beat writer for the San Francisco Chronicle from 1994 to 1998 and had a front-row seat to watch the unfolding relationship between the young Billy Beane and his mentor, Sandy Alderson, who introduced Beane to Bill James and Eric Walker and advanced statistical analysis. I’ve spent four years researching that period for my book “Baseball Maverick,” published this week by Grove Atlantic.My argument in the Times is in part based on a distillation of what Alderson himself would say. Alderson believes that the human side matters; that you learn from close study of advanced statistics, but you also tune into human elements. Talking today with Jonah Keri for his podcast, Alderson observed “most analysts believe the intangibles are subsumed in the numbers. But I’m not sure that’s the case.”Look, we’re all media savvy here and understand writers write articles, editors write headlines. I think, as I observed, that the application of advanced statistical analysis to baseball is a boon to the game, and is providing tremendous energy that is shaping the way the game is played — and the way the game is understood. Where I part ways with some of you is simply in whether it’s worth watching the games themselves: I was lucky enough to spend a summer at the New Yorker working with the great Roger Angell, and I will always be a fan of his close observation of the details of a baseball game. I’m saying: Can’t we have it all? Love stats, but don’t forget also to love the quirky little details of a baseball game as it develops in real time. Editor’s Note: For the record, all of us (except maybe benm) enjoy watching baseball.

This she says brings no development and Guyana should put legislation in place to protect against unnecessary withdrawals.“I do not recommend that the SWF be used to supplement recurring expenditure as has been happening recently in Trinidad and Tobago. Recurrent expenditure brings no return. It beings no development and therefore whatever legislation you make, I suggest you put within it, a prohibition for drawdowns not to be utilized for recurrent expenditure.”“Your SWF is an insurance policy, it is not nor should it be seen as a cash cow that anytime you have a financing deficit that you will dip into it. It doesn’t work like that. It is only to be used in specific circumstances,” she added.When looking at ways in which excess resources can be channeled into the SWF, the former Prime Minister asserted that the emerging oil and gas industry is positively identified as a source. It can also cushion the sector when prices are low.Persaud-Bissesar said “SWFs are often linked to oil prices or can be a legal clause in a petroleum license or petroleum production contract. In fact, there are many economic tools which can used to channel resources into such a fund. These funds act as buffers given the volatile pricing and political issues involved in the hydrocarbon industry.”She further stated, “Other supplemental tools such as petroleum production taxes, supplemental petroleum taxes, a petroleum impost and clauses for increased scales of taxation for supernormal finds may be worthy of consideration as adjunct strategies to enable equity in profit sharing across the board and sustainability during low price periods.”The Green Paper for the establishment of the SWF was laid in early August of this year. At that time, Finance Minister, Winston Jordan told the National Assembly that this sets out preliminary proposals to stimulate discussion and also points to possible courses of action open to the SWF legislation.Given that the establishment of the SWF is relatively complex and there can be substantial administrative costs, the paper noted that if two completely separate funds are established, then this infers that there are two investment policies, two governance structures and two external audits. The Government is hyping the Natural Resources Fund, which is focused on the management of the oil resources.For the management of the Fund, the Green Paper has recommended that Parliament be responsible for passing the Natural Resource Fund Act, reviewing the Annual Report and approving the Annual Budget, which would include the annual withdrawal from the Natural Resource Fund.Guyana’s reserves have been depleted significantly over the past three years and the Opposition Leader, Dr Bharrat Jagdeo also announced recently that the proceeds of the SWF may very well go towards replenishing Guyana’s reserves.According to him, State reserves have be “run down” by the present coalition Administration and he maintained that once the resources are paid into the revenue stream of the Government, it must go through the required parliamentary procedure.

As United States Trade Representative Ron Kirk moves to consider ways to improve the nation’s trade relationship with the European Union (EU) as part of the recently-formed U.S.-EU High Level Working Group on Jobs and Growth, the American Soybean Association (ASA) submitted formal comments reminding the ambassador that the EU’s heavy-handed policies on biotech soybeans, as well as inaccurate characterization of biodiesel by the Renewable Energy Directive (RED), have contributed to a 70 percent drop in total soybean export quantity and a 44 percent decrease in soybean export value to the EU over the last 14 years.”As a direct result of more than a decade of discriminatory biotech traceability and labeling practices, America’s soybean producers have lost a significant portion of what was a viable and thriving export market,” said ASA President Steve Wellman, a soybean farmer from Syracuse, Neb. “Now, with a Renewable Energy Directive that omits biodiesel based on inaccurate information and arbitrary standards, the remainder of that export market is threatened.”In its comments, ASA points out that multiple EU policies hinder the importation and use of biotech crops from the United States, including delays in approvals of new biotech traits, despite positive assessments by the European Food Safety Authority; commercially infeasible requirements on biotech content in food products under EU Traceability and Labeling Regulations; state-by-state restrictions on biotech imports; and application of National Seed Catalog and Coexistence requirements to planting of biotech crops by certain EU member states.With regard to biodiesel, ASA contends that the RED will impose inaccurate greenhouse gas emissions reduction requirements for biodiesel produced from American soybean oil and other feedstocks; and will require compliance with arbitrary, unwarranted and commercially infeasible sustainability certification requirements.”Soybeans and soy-based products are the country’s leading agricultural export, topping $26 billion in total value last year,” added Wellman. “We are certainly encouraged by efforts to expand trading relationships and grow new trading partners, but not at the expense of our industry’s global competitiveness. Any discussions on a potential trade agreement with the EU must first address and resolve these barriers.”
This past summer, ASA became the first farmer-led organization to join the PrecisionAg Institute, an organization focused on advancing precision agriculture technology and its efficiency, stewardship and profitability for farmers. The use of precision agriculture tools and methods continues to play a growing role in the sustainability and productivity of U.S. farm operations.ASA Vice President and Ag Data Work Group Chairman Ron Moore (IL) recently joined ASA staff member Michelle Hummel in participating in a PrecisionAg Institute Board meeting in Chicago. The group discussed future research and educational opportunities in regards to Precision Ag and the use of ag data. Other participants in the meeting included representatives from John Deere, SST, Wilbur-Ellis, Climate Corp, TopCon, Midwest Laboratories, WinField, Millenium Research, ESRI, Brase LLC and Meister Media. For more information on the PrecisionAg Institute, click here.This past summer, the PrecisionAg Institute was a key partner in the InfoAg Conference, an event held in St. Louis that was completely focused on PrecisionAg technology and education. ASA Director Joe Steinkamp (IN) participated in a video-taped interview on the PrecisionAg Institute center stage at this event to discuss the role of precision agriculture in farming and the opportunities the technology holds to improve sustainability. This interview was recently posted on the PrecisionAg website. Click here to watch the interview.
-Terming the Rohingya crisis a national one, opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) on Monday said it wants a national unity to face the problem instead of doing politic over the issue.”We don’t want to do politics over the Rohingya issue. We think it’s a national crisis and we’ll have to tackle the situation uniting the entire nation,” said BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.He came up with the comments while speaking at a discussion programme arranged by BNP at the Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh, marking its chairperson Khaleda Zia’s 10th ‘jail release’ day.The BNP leader said though the government had been playing a silent role over the Rohingya issue, it has now become vocal on the matter as the world community started reacting to it and putting pressure on Myanmar.Making their party’s position clear on the issue, Fakhrul said BNP wants Rohingyas to be given shelter for a temporary period, not permanently, on humanitarian grounds. “Give them food and shelter, and force the Myanmar government to take back its citizens.”He alleged that sending its citizens to Bangladesh by repressing them is an act of aggression by Myanmar against the country’s independence and sovereignty. “The government should take all necessary diplomatic efforts to force Myanmar to take back Rohingyas ensuring their dignity and citizenship.”The BNP leader said the government and its aides have again started a false campaign against BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia and senior vice-chairman Tarique Rahman as people are now taking preparation for the next general election. “There’ll be no use of carrying out propaganda against our leader (Khaleda) since people have given her a place in their hearts.”He alleged that the way Myanmar government is eliminating the Rohingyas, the same way the government is annihilating democratic forces in Bangladesh.Fakhrul alleged that the government is eliminating those who are taking position in favour of democracy and people in a planned way.
Ryan Poppe | Texas Public RadioThe Texas Capitol in Austin.Harvey could dominate much of the next Texas legislative session. House Speaker Joe Straus has told key committees to start working on long-term solutions to Harvey-related problems. He wants lawmakers ready to act the moment the Legislature convenes in 2019.Top priorities for Straus include flood control and other infrastructure investment. That’s not only to fix damage from Harvey, but also to prepare for future disasters. In addition, the speaker wants help for schools Harvey damaged and students the storm displaced.“The recovery from this thing is, it’s going to be long at best,” says State Rep. John Zerwas of Fort Bend County, chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, “and it could be even more prolonged if we aren’t stepping in and making sure we understand what the resources that are available to us and making sure that the communities and ultimately the citizens will benefit from those things.”Zerwas says 2019 may seem like a long way off, but lawmakers will have to work out the framework of the budget by next summer. He plans to bring the Appropriations Committee to Houston in October for its first public hearing. 00:00 /00:56 X Listen To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Share
Members of the Black Women’s Roundtable recently convened its annual meeting to lobby against the passing of the Trump budget and the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court, with the support of Black female members of the U.S. Congress.On March 30, about 50 participants in the Black Women’s Roundtable conference gathered outside of the capitol to make their concerns known.Melanie Campbell is the president and CEO of the National Coalition of Black Civic Participation and convener of Black Women’s Roundtable. (Courtesy photo)“We will be here all day today to talk about two issues.” Melanie Campbell, the president and CEO of the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation and convener of the Black Women’s Roundtable Public Network, said. “We are opposed to President Trump’s skinny budget and Neil Gorsuch becoming a justice on the Supreme Court because he is a danger to women’s health.”The Roundtable released on March 29 a 72-page document entitled “Black Women in the U.S., 2017: Moving Our Agenda Forward in the Post-Obama Era” that served as the rallying cry for the organization’s 6th Annual “Women of Power” Summit that took place in the District and in Arlington, Va. In essence, the report detailed the challenges Black women face in health, human trafficking, the juvenile justice system, higher education, businesses and entrepreneurship and expanding political power.The Roundtable has come to the Capitol Hill and lobbied lawmakers for years on issues dealing with funding women’s health programs, supporting reproductive rights, advocating on behalf of increasing educational opportunities for Black women and supporting presidential appointments that are sensitive to the needs of African-American women.U.S. Reps. Yvette Clark (D-N.Y.), Karen Bass (D-Calif.), Joyce Beatty (D-Ohio), Robin Kelly (D-Ill.), Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-Texas) and Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-N.J.) joined the rally. Clarke said the “Trump budget is diametrically opposed to the advancement of Black women.”“We would be in a state of siege if this budget is passed,” she said. “We have the power to address these issues and the document that you have presented will be used by the Congressional Black Caucus to resist the budget.”Jackson-Lee said that Black women must step up in the interest of their families and communities.“There is no greater time for African American women,” Jackson-Lee said. “Seniors in the sunset of their lives must be able to participate in Meals on Wheels and there must be funding for anti-violence and community development programs. The Trump budget is inhumane.”Jackson-Lee urged the rally participants to go to their homes and engage “your governors, state legislators and local officials to speak to what is right.”It was generally understood among the rally leaders and attendees that Gorsuch on the Supreme Court was unacceptable. Carol Joyner urged the participants to call their senators to stop Gorsuch.“This is a Supreme Court nominee that has ruled that corporations are people,” she said.Later that day, there was the Congressional Legislative Luncheon that was held at the headquarters of the National Council of Negro Women and at the Crystal City hotel, there were plenary sessions on fighting for women’s rights, the media and health and healing.
Source = Munich Airport An app for a non-cash shopping experience: Munich Airport’s retail arm eurotrade has signed a cooperative agreement with Wirecard AG and is launching the Asian payment system Alipay in all participating shops. Effective immediately, travelers from China can now use their phones to make purchases easily and conveniently with Alipay in the 69 eurotrade stores. All of eurotrade’s retail units, before and after security, have programmed their point of sale terminals to accept the Alipay bar code. The platform will be expanded in the future to offer other alternative payment methods as well.Payment with an Alipay bar code is very simple: Customers making purchases with their Alipay wallets just show the cashier their smartphone displaying a barcode. After the code is scanned, the payment process begins. Occasionally customers will have to confirm payment by entering their PIN.“Passengers from China are one of our most important, high-revenue target groups at Munich Airport,” says Sven Zahn, the managing director of eurotrade Flughafen München Handels-GmbH. “The ability to offer our Asian guests the same mobile payment option they use at home in all of our stores, without having to change currencies is just the latest example of the philosophy that earned us the title of Europe’s only five-star airport. With Wirecard we have found a local and reliable partner to support us in implementing the solution.”“With our ConnectedPOS platform, we can quickly and easily implement the acceptance of Alipay payments in the eurotrade point-of-sale systems. Alipay is a key strategic partner for us. Alternative POS payment processes are just getting started in Europe. But Alipay is an excellent example of how quickly these solutions can establish themselves as a standard,” adds Markus Eichinger, the Head of Mobile Services with Wirecard.
