Senators Introduce Legislation to Prevent Proposed EPA Water Rule

first_img SHARE By Andy Eubank – Jun 22, 2014 Home Indiana Agriculture News Senators Introduce Legislation to Prevent Proposed EPA Water Rule Facebook Twitter Senators Introduce Legislation to Prevent Proposed EPA Water Rule Last Week Kansas Senator Pat Roberts and 29 other Republican Senators introduced legislation to prevent the Environmental Protection Agency from implementing its proposed Waters of the U.S. rule. Agri-Pulse reports the Senators claim the rule would allow the agency to take over all private and state waters in the U.S. by expanding its jurisdiction under the Clean Water Act. Roberts says he wants to make sure the expansion of regulatory jurisdiction over Waters of the U.S. is shelved for good – and he believes this legislation prohibits the EPA Administrator and Army Corps of Engineers Secretary from finalizing the rule or trying a similar regulation in the future.Source: NAFB News Service SHARE Facebook Twitter Previous articleDiscovery Park Center Awarded $12 Million DOE GrantNext articleUnderstanding the Politics of Food Andy Eubanklast_img read more

Editor gets provisional release when he has only two days left to serve

first_imgNews Organisation Reports November 6, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Editor gets provisional release when he has only two days left to serve The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa Receive email alerts Weekly seized from Gabon’s newsstands Help by sharing this information Norbert Ngoua Mezui, the editor of the fortnightly Nku’u Le Messager, was released provisionally two days before completing the 21-day prison sentence he began serving on 18 October. He received the sentence in 2003 but had never previously been made to serve it. Meanwhile, his lawyer’s appeal against the conviction on matters of substance will not now be heard until 11 December.——————————25.10.2006 – President Bongo asked to intercede on behalf of imprisoned editorReporters Without Borders wrote to President Omar Bongo yesterday asking him to do everything possible to obtain the release of Norbert Ngoua Mezui, the editor of the weekly Nku’u Le Messager, who was imprisoned on 18 October for a 21-day sentence which he received in 2003 but which he had never previously been made to serve. The press freedom organisation told Bongo his intercession on behalf of Mezui was needed to defuse mounting tension and hostility, both between various newspapers and between the media as a whole and the Gabonese authorities.Imprisoning a journalist “is an utterly inappropriate and disproportionate response to professional misconduct (…) and looks anachronistic in Gabon, where this form of punishment has not been used since 2000,” the letter said, pointing out that Gabon belongs to two organisations, the United Nations and the International Organisation of Francophone Countries (OIF), which have been calling for the decriminalization of press offences for years.His imprisonment is all the more deplorable as the newspaper he founded, Nku’u Le Messager, is known for being serious and for appearing regularly, in a country where many newspapers are published only intermittently and are tools for waging veiled political struggles, the letter pointed out.The letter finally suggested that the Gabonese judicial authorities had acted under “political pressure” as a result of a continuing media outcry resulting from allegations by two pro-governmental dailies, L’Union and Le Crocodile, that three ministers had pressured the president’s office to sell off the disputed island of Mbanié to neighbouring Equatorial Guinea.On 21 October, the National Council for Communication (CNC) issued a solemn warning to two privately-owned newspapers and a formal notice to a third.Reporters Without Borders holds that Mezui’s imprisonment is illegal for two reasons. Firstly, more than three years have gone by since his conviction in June 2003, and a three-year statute of limitations applies to the case. Secondly, the courts never ruled on the appeal filed by his lawyer against the conviction, and he could not therefore be made to serve the sentence until it has been confirmed on appeal. to go further GabonAfrica center_img GabonAfrica Follow the news on Gabon January 24, 2020 Find out more News RSF_en News November 27, 2020 Find out more Gabonese journalist could spend New Year’s Eve in prison December 31, 2019 Find out morelast_img read more

Kommersant deputy editor says reporter’s death should not be politicised

first_img Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown Reporters Without Borders: Do you think Ivan Safronov’s death was the result of a criminal act? Ilya Bulavinov: If it was a violent death, it was probably linked to his professional activity. But for the time being there are no grounds for claiming this. “We welcome opening of criminal investigation in Lithuania in response to our complaint against Lukashenko” RSF says May 28, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Do you think Ivan may have killed himself?No. He had a very happy family life. He was very involved in preparing the future of his son, who is a student. Ivan was a man who was very conscious of his responsibilities towards those close to him. He supported his family. All this confirms that he could not have killed himself. He loved his family too much to abandon them.I would also like to say that this case is being politicised. People should not write that Ivan was an opponent of the regime. That would be false. He was never an opponent. Yes, he had brushes with this or that official. Some of them did not like him. But he was not an opponent they would have wanted to kill.

The police initially treated it as a suicide, eliciting energetic protests from Kommersant. Prosecutors finally said on 5 March they were investigating the possibility that it was the result of “incitement to suicide.”Given the sensitive nature of the subjects Safronov wrote about, Reporters Without Borders firmly believes the police should be investigating the possibility that he was killed in connection with his work as a journalist. News News Ivan Safronov, a reporter for the political section of the business daily Kommersant, was buried yesterday at the Khovanski cemetery. The circumstances of his death raise many questions. Reporters Without Borders has interviewed Kommersant deputy editor Ilya Bulavinov about the case. News What story was he working on at the time of his death?After attending the IDEX-2007 show, he wanted to work on Russian arms sales to the Middle East. This exhibition, one of the biggest in the arms world, took place on 17 February in Abu Dhabi. Ivan wanted to investigate deliveries of SU-30 fighters and other weapons to Syria and deliveries of C-300B anti-aircraft missiles to Iran. We never got this article. That is all we know.When did you see Ivan for the last time?Before the show, that is to say, a month ago. He had not come to the newspaper since then.Do you know if he had received threats?What I can say is that he knew that arms contracts were as sensitive subject. Especially as writing about this subject could be seen as “divulging state secrets.” Ivan and I had been summoned to testify in criminal trials for divulging state secrets. He had often been asked to reveal his sources. But Ivan was a very careful and scrupulous man. He always kept lots of different documents and could prove he got his information from known sources.The authorities are now investigating the possibility of “incitement to suicide.” What does that mean?Incitement to suicide could, for example, consist of regular telephone threats and so on. We are satisfied with this term. Initially, after Ivan’s death, we had a clear impression that no one wanted to deal with this case. The investigating judges in particular were very reluctant to act. But the public tributes paid to Ivan and statements by many journalists prompted the decision to open an investigation.Will Kommersant carry out its own investigation?Unfortunately, our resources cannot be compared with those of the prosecutor’s office. I think we have already done everything we can. We interviewed Ivan’s neighbours, his friends and relatives, and his doctor. He had a stomach ulcer which got worse some time ago. We thought that his doctor, whom he had just seen prior to his death, may have given him very bad news. But the doctor told us Ivan did not have any serious ailment and that his condition was even improving. June 2, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts May 27, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Distance runner Green logs 50K miles

first_img Email the author Green admits that he is not a team-minded person. He enjoys team sports as a spectator but, if he’s going to compete, he prefers an individual pursuit.“If you win or lose, it’s because of yourself,” he said. “You are your own competition. It’s you against the clock. You train to improve and you know when you didn’t do your best. The outcome is up to you.”Distance running is, for the most part, a solitary sport. And, so is the training – the long hours of running and going nowhere.“It’s rather ironic,” Green said, laughing. “I run and run but I don’t go anywhere. I finish right where I started. I run and then I go get in the car and go home.”So, the solitary “game” for a distance runner is “played” by only those who have a passion for the sport. They can’t really explain it. And, they don’t have to even understand it. They just run for the inner joy of it and to compete against themselves, primarily.Green runs and/or trains seven days a week, beginning on Sunday. And, by Saturday night, he has usually logged quite a few miles, building up to 110 to 120 miles a week while in training for a 26.2-mile marathon.“Every now and then, I’ll take a day off but not often,” Green said. “A typical week for me is about 21 miles on Sunday, 10 on Monday, a speed session on the track and a few miles on Tuesday. Wednesday, I’ll run about 15 miles and Thursday will be another track session and run. Ten miles on Friday and on Saturday, I’ll do several miles in the morning and about four or five in the afternoon.”Nobody forces Green to run so, when he feels like he needs to take a break, he’ll step away for a few days.“But then I start missing it,” he said. “Running is wonderful. It’s fun. A main benefit for me has been discipline. Running is not a glamorous sport and it’s not a money sport. It’s a very personal sport.”Since his dad started logging his runs when he was about 15 years old, Green has run 202 road races, 27 track races, 136 cross country races, 28 half-marathons and 10 marathons — three in London, three in Hartford, Conn., three in Huntsville and one in Scotland.“The only one that I’ve won was Huntsville in 2003,” he said. “But I’m running to improve my times every time I run. My best marathon was 2.18.11 in 2004. My goal is always to train and be ready and to do my best.”In a couple of weeks, Green will compete in the London Marathon, which is a world-class event.“It’s an open event with two elite classes,” he said. “The World Class Elite will be the top runners. I’ll be in the second tier, the International Elite.”There will be about 40,000 runners and the three top British runners who finish will qualify for the 2010 Commonwealth Games in India. The 2012 London Marathon will be a qualifier for the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London.Michael Green, the “Brit” that he is and the competitor that he is, would like nothing better than to be a member of that team.“When you have a goal you have to take a first step toward it,” he said. “You have to make the changes that you must make and do what must be done, unless you do, it’s just a pipe dream.”Michael Green isn’t into pipe dreams. He’s run way too far for that.

From the first running effort that he remembers, he loved the “sport.”“I was a very active – hyper – child and I was also a small person,” Green said. “I wasn’t attracted to soccer so my dad encouraged me to run.

Dora’s stories: Closing my eyes to let the memories in

first_img Sponsored Content Published 3:00 am Saturday, January 16, 2016 Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Email the author Skip Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits By The Penny Hoarder In the afternoons, Dora would make my cousin, Jimmy, and me chocolate milk, fresh from the milk cow. Dora would mix Hershey’s powder with a little milk and then put it in a half-gallon jug with more milk, sugar and ice cubes and shake it until it foamed and cooled. The foam would tickle my lips and that chocolate milk was the best thing that I had ever tasted. Except maybe when Dora would come to the back door and call us in to lick the bowl of whatever sweet thing she was making.Dora taught me a lot of things that I would never have known otherwise. Things like, “If you’re gonna gnaw that pork chop bone, get behind the kitchen door.” And not to put anything smaller than my elbow in my ear. And, “If you’re gonna open the door to let the breeze in, the flies are gonna come in, too.” I’ve found that to be one of the world’s great truths.Dora had a funny way of saying things. She called a mimosa tree a “comotion” tree and the narrow, rollout windows in my grandmother’s house, “jealousy” windows. And, once, telling us about the beautiful corsage that her grandson gave his prom date, she said he gave his girlfriend “the most beautiful massage.” Dora was a great storyteller, too. But, when she talked to you, she never looked at you. Always 90 degrees off, like she was talking to somebody else. I’d look off from her and let her words paint pictures in my mind. Many of those pictures linger there today. All I have to do is close my eyes and let the memories in. Every year, when it’s Pike Piddlers Storytelling Festival time, I think of Dora and of all the others who gave me the gift of stories. I think of the many afternoons, we sat on her porch and she painted pictures in my mind. She had a funny way of saying things and telling things. But, she always ended each story with, “You go on home now, sweet girl.”And I would leave always with a happy heart and a story to savor.

Regional variability of ice core dust composition and provenance in Greenland

first_imgMineralogical and isotopic composition (Sr and Nd) of six dust samples, obtained from six widely spread ice-coring sites in Greenland, were analyzed in order to investigate the regional geographic variability of dust provenance. We show that long-range transport from eastern Asian deserts provides mineral dust with essentially the same composition to all elevated interior sites (Dye 3, Site A, GRIP, and NorthGRIP), while most material deposited at sites located closer to the edge and at lower altitude (Hans Tausen and Renland) derives from proximal source regions. No contribution from other sources is apparent at any of the interior sites from the mineralogical and isotopic composition of the dust samples, each of which represents several decades of dust deposition during the 17th-18th century. These results provide additional evidence that African and North American deserts do not play a significant role in the dust deposited over Greenland, which has implications for ice core record interpretation and atmospheric dust transport model validation.last_img read more
