Since reaching a one-year low of 5,500p at the end of March, the stock has since doubled in value. As one of the world’s largest gaming groups, Flutter has been able to avoid the worst of the coronavirus crisis.Its latest trading update showed a 10% year-on-year increase in group revenue for the second quarter. That’s despite the widespread disruption to global sporting events in the period. An increase in poker and gaming revenue offset a decline in sports betting revenues. Flutter’s performance during the past few months is hugely positive. It also suggests that the company is on track for a strong performance in 2020. The FTSE 100 stock is currently dealing at a PEG ratio of 0.9, which suggests that it offers a margin of safety at the current price. Analysts are expecting earnings to double over the next two years. Considering all of the above, now could be the right time to buy a slice of Flutter while it appears to offer a wide margin of safety and growth profile relative to many FTSE 100 companies.Smurfit Kappa Another FTSE 100 share that could produce long-term total returns is Smurfit Kappa (LSE: SKG).Like Flutter, Smurfit seems to be coping well with the disruption caused by the coronavirus crisis. Its latest trading update reported that the volume of packaging sold by the group during the first quarter of 2020 increased 2% on an organic basis within Europe. Volumes increased 3.5% year-on-year across the Americas. Despite this positive performance, analysts are expecting the company’s earnings to fall nearly a third this year. The City expects higher costs to offset revenue growth. Still, after recent declines, shares in the FTSE 100 giant are dealing at a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) multiple of just 13.7. That is below the company’s long-term average of around 15. Therefore, it could be a great time to buy a share in this growing business at a discounted price.Unfortunately, to preserve cash, the company had axed its dividend for the time being. But Smurfit has a solid track record of returning any excess profits to shareholders and above-inflation dividend growth. It seems highly likely that this trend will continue when the coronavirus crisis has subsided.  I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Foto de Jane Kawamoto.[The Episcopal News – Diócesis de Los Ángeles] Dos muros de acero de 20 pies de alto entre Tijuana y San Diego hacen prácticamente imposible cualquier contacto físico o visual, pero no pudieron impedir a episcopales y anglicanos de ambos lados de la frontera celebrar juntos la Eucaristía el 2 de abril.El despliegue de unidad tenía por objetivo resaltar la apremiante situación de los indocumentados y las injustas leyes de inmigración que separan y dividen a las familias, dijeron la obispa sufragánea de la diócesis de Los Ángeles y el obispo Jim Mathes de la diócesis de San Diego.Con los helicópteros de la Patrulla Fronteriza de EE.UU. sobrevolándolos, los dos obispos bendijeron el pan y el vino a las 3:00 P.M. en un oficio del lado estadounidense de la frontera en el parque de la Amistad [Friendship Park] de San Diego. A unos pocos metros del otro lado de la frontera, clérigos de la Iglesia Anglicana de México hacían lo mismo.“¡Qué estupenda manera de celebrar este lunes de Semana Santa”, dijo Bruce luego. “Al final del oficio, las personas (del lado mexicano) se acercaron individualmente al muro y pidieron bendiciones.“[La experiencia] me llevó hasta el límite, al hacerme comprender que no hay muros que puedan separarnos de la gracia amorosa de Dios. No hay ninguna frontera que pueda lograr eso”.La frontera fue la última estación de este Via Crucis (Camino de la Cruz) interurbano, una peregrinación que comenzó a las 8:30 A.M. en el parque MacArthur de Los Ángeles y culminó con la Eucaristía en la frontera, recorrido a lo largo del cual se conmemoraron las 14 estaciones de la Cruz. Luego de rezar las primeras tres estaciones en el parque MacArthur, unos 40 peregrinos formaron una caravana de automóviles.La procesión la encabezaba una imagen en madera Jesús de 6 pies de alto que viajó en una camioneta más de 200 kilómetros en dirección sur a lo largo de la autopista Interestatal 5. En el trayecto se fueron añadiendo peregrinos a la caravana que se detuvo para rezar, en inglés y en español, en los puntos designados como estaciones de la Cruz en San Clemente y Chula Vista antes de llegar a la frontera.“Para nosotros hoy, como cristianos, es uno de los momentos más sagrados del año -la Semana Santa- y estamos contando la historia de la opresión que padeció nuestro Señor Jesucristo”, dijo la Rda. Liz Muñoz, rectora de la iglesia de la Trinidad en Los Ángeles y organizadora de la peregrinación.“Muchos de nosotros creemos que Jesús fue alguien que emigró del cielo a la tierra”, dijo ella a los que se reunieron en el parque MacArthur. “Él vino del cielo sin documentación a enseñarnos a amar a Dios y amarnos los unos a los otros”.“Nos congregamos hoy para orar por leyes de inmigración justas que les permitan a las familias que han estado unidas que sigan estando unidas aquí para participar y ser queridas tal como todo el mundo merece ser querido en este país”.Una imagen del Salvador del Mundo, traída originalmente de El Salvador y usualmente expuesta en la iglesia episcopal de la Trinidad (Trinity Episcopal Church), en Los Ángeles, acompañó la peregrinación del Via Crucis. Foto de Janet KawamotoSeñalando a la imagen de Jesús, con corona dorada y manto rojo brillante, dentro de un fanal de vidrio en la parte trasera de la camioneta, Muñoz prosiguió: Este Salvador del Mundo hizo todo el trayecto desde San Salvador [El Salvador] en un camión, cruzando tres fronteras. Hoy lo estamos llevando de regreso a una frontera, la primera frontera, y esperemos que algún año, en algún momento de nuestra vida, sea la última”.Rosie Vásquez, de 45 años y feligresa de la iglesia de Todos los Santos [All Saints Church] en Highland Park, dijo que ella se había sentido movida a unirse a la peregrinación “debido a mi fe.“Esto tiene que ver con mi familia, tiene que ver con mi país, tiene que ver con el amor de Jesús por todos nosotros”, dijo Vásquez, que leyó las oraciones en español en la primera estación [del Via Crucis] “Jesús es condenado a muerte”. “Yo nunca he hecho nada como esto antes”, añadió Vásquez, que vino a Los Ángeles procedente de Guatemala en 1986. “Me siento tan entusiasmada de formar parte de esto”.Christy Goulet, de 23 años, y Jazmin Trammell, de 25, internas urbanas episcopales asignadas a la iglesia de Santa María [St. Mary’s] en Los Ángeles, dijeron que se habían incorporado al grupo multiétnico de peregrinos “para aprender más sobre las tradiciones y la liturgia episcopales” y experimentar las conexiones entre las estaciones de la cruz y los problemas de la inmigración.“Todos somos peregrinos”, dijo el Rdo. Patrick Crerar, rector de la iglesia de San Clemente del Mar [St. Clement by-the-Sea] en San Clemente, mientras le daba la bienvenida al grupo que llegaba de Los Ángeles.“Apoyamos la unidad de la familia, no la división. Es el deseo de Dios y es el deseo de la Iglesia y es el deseo de todos nosotros que las familias se reunifiquen, de manera que nos unimos a esta peregrinación para buscar la voluntad de Dios, para buscar la justicia de Dios en nuestras leyes de inmigración y para buscar una mayor unidad en las familias divididas por el muro”.En la escuela episcopal de San Juan [St. John’s Episcopal School] en Chula Vista, el obispo Mathes recibió a los peregrinos de Los Ángeles. [Al dirigirse al grupo] él dijo que emulaba a Jesús “el gran cruzador de fronteras, que nos mostró el camino de pasar de la vida divina a la vida humana y de ésta a la vida sempiterna”.“Ésta es la Semana Santa”, agregó. “Esta es la semana en que recordamos la muerte de Jesús y esperamos su resurrección. Por lo menos, yo espero que esta peregrinación sea un momento de nueva vida para los que buscan esperanza”.Para Juana Córdoba, líder laica de la iglesia de El Mesías [Church of the Messiah] en Santa Ana, la peregrinación fue tanto personal como dolorosa.“Yo vine a buscar un empleo para sostener a mis hijos porque no tenía nada con que alimentarlos y ningún dinero en México”, dijo a través de un intérprete. Ella estuvo yendo y viniendo entre ambos países hasta que, poco a poco, pudo traer a todos sus hijos, explicó Córdoba, madre soltera de seis, a quien le afloran las lágrimas cuando menciona esa separación.“Quiero hacer algo por la separación de las familias”, añadió Córdoba, los miembros de cuya familia terminaron por hacerse ciudadanos de EE.UU. “Quiero colaborar en pro de una solución porque hay muchas personas hoy día que no tienen documentos. Me siento muy solidaria con ellas. Mi mayor deseo es que haya algún tipo de programa donde las personas puedan obtener documentación para trabajar”.Blanca Ruelas-Suárez, también feligresa de la iglesia del Mesías, se muestra de acuerdo con ella. “Estoy aquí para apoyar a los que no son lo bastante afortunados para tener la documentación que yo tengo, y con la esperanza de que los líderes de nuestro gobierno prestarán atención y harán algo para ayudarles”, dijo ella a través de un intérprete.“También estoy aquí para honrar y hacer duelo por las personas que han muerto tratando de cruzar la frontera”.El grupo había aumentado hasta cerca de 80 personas en el momento en que los peregrinos llegaron al parque de la Amistad [Friendship Park], situado dentro del parque estatal del Terreno Fronterizo [Border Field State Park]. Allí, en el espacio entre los dos muros, se celebró la Eucaristía.Los peregrinos portaban cruces y estandartes rojos durante la media hora de marcha a lo largo del océano hasta los muros de la frontera [que en algunos tramos se reduce a una cerca que deja ver el otro lado]. Unos 180 peregrinos que se habían reunido del lado de Tijuana prorrumpieron en vítores, silbidos y aplausos cuando vieron que se acercaba el grupo de Estados Unidos, así como en gritos de “nadie es inmigrante”, al tiempo que un mariachi empezaba a tocar.Los clérigos y las congregaciones de México que participaron incluían al Rdo. Miguel Zavala-Múgica, de San Juan Apóstol y Evangelista en Ensenada; al Rdo. Adeli Candelario García, de la misión anglicana de Cristo el Rey en Tijuana, así como a niños del Colegio la Esperanza y de la Casa Hogar Dorcas y la Casa Vida Joven.La Eucaristía junto al muro se celebró con el permiso y la plena cooperación de la Patrulla Fronteriza de EE.UU., según dijo Bruce.Sólo dejaron entrar a 25 personas al mismo tiempo en el espacio entre ambos muros. Según entraba cada grupo de 25 personas para recibir la comunión, la gente se aproximaban a la cerca y trataban de tocar, saludar y conectarse con los del otro lado.“Vi allí a un viejo amigo de muchísimos años”, dijo el Rdo. Roberto Limatu, de Los Ángeles. “Este ha sido un día muy, muy bueno”.Para Luis Garibay, encargado del edificio del centro diocesano de la Catedral de San Pablo [St Paul] en Los Ángeles, cargar la imagen tamaño natural de Jesús en la camioneta y luego llevarla hasta la frontera fue, de suyo, toda una experiencia.“Las personas se nos acercaban en la autopista y se fijaban en nosotros dentro de la camioneta. Luego se quedaban detrás para tomar fotos de Jesús. Oí a alguien que puso una de las fotos en la Internet y dijo: “Jesús está conduciendo por la autopista”.La obispa Diane Bruce de Los Ángeles y el obispo James Mathes y el Rdo. Carlos García, de San Diego, se disponen a concelebrar la Eucaristía junto al muro fronterizo entre EE.UU. y México. El oficio se celebró simultáneamente del otro lado de la frontera. Foto de Janet KawamotoA la Rda. Jennifer Hughes, que imparte estudios latinos en la Universidad de California en Riverside, y a quien se le ocurrió la idea del Via Crucis, dijo que se sentía contenta con la asistencia que había tenido la peregrinación, pero añadió que esperaba “una comunidad eucarística más sostenida, más que una vez al año. Es mi esperanza de que habrá algún tipo de testimonio eucarístico regular en la frontera”.El Rdo. Carlos García, vicario de la iglesia de Santa Rosa del Mar y sacerdote encargado de la iglesia de San Felipe Apóstol [St. Philip the Apostle] en Lemon Grove, en la diócesis de San Diego, está de acuerdo en que el empeño debe continuar.“El día de hoy me dio más de un sentido del por qué estamos aquí. Se trata de unir a las familias. Sin duda que lo volvería a hacer”.El Rdo. Butch Gamarra, de la diócesis de Los Ángeles, dio que esperaba que la peregrinación sirviera para destacar los problemas “de manera que la gente pueda oírlos. Éste puede ser un tema muy polarizador y debemos ayudar a destacar la apremiante situación de los inmigrantes. Es una tragedia humana. Uno no puede llamar ilegal al pueblo de Dios. Ningún ser humano es ilegal. Usted podría ser indocumentado, pero no ilegal.“Tenemos que dar a conocer la situación de las familias que se rompen, de cuán traumático es para los niños cuando sus padres son deportados, cuando no pueden quedarse en la escuela. Especialmente la gente de fe debemos levantar nuestras voces en [su] defensa e intentar que se llegue a alguna solución con la reforma migratoria, de manera que las personas puedan vivir vidas normales y ser tratadas como personas, no como peones políticos”.— La Rda.

This space was originally an above part of the bedroom (at the 3rd floor) of the old mansion which is set up many technical systems (electric system, water system, and air-conditioner), and this part is quite high. We have added one more floor in order to divide its height into two parts with the aim of creating to an additional floor (meanwhile, the underneath bedroom is still assured its height) for the purpose of the warehouse.Save this picture!© Le Anh DucWhen creating an independent floor for technical system and warehouse, both the architects and the householder find that this new space is very interesting and of course, they decide that it should be a multifunctional space to serve for the apartment. It is also used to read book, hang the hammock, do yoga, and meditate or simply to store some souvenirs that the house owner collected when visiting everywhere.Save this picture!© Le Anh DucThe staircase is moved to another place (in accordance with the function of all underneath floors) so as to make feel it higher when going up the roof, but the roof is unchanged. Moreover, taking advantage of the cross-beam roofs also helps us to create layers in order to make a variety of different space. Additionally, we have also made use of the old diagonal, and combined with cross arches to create an unified whole – origami.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe space for hanging the hammock is higher because there is a WC in the underneath floor.

In fact, those colors and papers exist everywhere in the country, but only Dong Ho people know how to use them as art materials. The availability in nature colors becomes valuable art materials. The smooth, shiny “Dzo” paper is for writing poem only. But after coated colors from oyster shell or red stones, the paper can be transferred into glittering stars sky. The lines are very flexible and coherent. Due to creative, talent mind of Dong Ho people, the very simple things has become nation’s art property.

One month left to apply for Greenham Trust community project funding

first_img Charitable organisations looking for financial support for a community project have one month left to apply for a Greenham Trust grant.Greenham Trust is inviting applications from local organisations for funding for a variety of community projects. Applications can be submitted via The Good Exchange website and should be received by Friday 23 March with funding awarded to successful projects in April. Applications will also be considered for Trust Top-Up, a scheme where Greenham Trust offers up to £5,000 of matched funding against public and company donations made online via The Good Exchange.In 2017, Greenham Trust awarded a total of £314,000 in reactive grants for 127 charitable projects aimed at benefitting the residents of Newbury and surrounding West Berkshire areas. One of these charities was Home Start, which Greenham Trust supported with funding for three projects last year.The Home Start projects have all helped to address the needs reported by families and referrers in West Berkshire, and range from offering support with post-natal depression and providing learning journals, to a parent and baby group care home pilot project that aims to end the loneliness and isolation of new parents and babies and the elderly in care homes. The funding Home Start have received will help to bring young parents, babies and the elderly together once a week so they can spend quality time together to beat the blues of loneliness.Grace Ryder, Scheme Manager said:“We are very excited to be able to launch an Intergenerational Baby Group in West Berkshire and the response from the public has been overwhelming. Loneliness and isolation have a huge effect on the families we support so we are keen to see the impact this project can have. It has been a long time in conception and we are hugely grateful to Greenham Trust for making such a project a reality.”More information is available on the Trust’s site. The average grant size awarded is £2500, with the maximum grant available usually £30,000.Main image: Family and Home Start volunteer.

Why Zika virus crisis is hitting Brazil

first_imgZika, a mosquito-borne virus, is spreading quickly in 33 countries. The virus was identified in Brazil for the first time last May and is suspected of being responsible for an explosive rise there in infants born with microcephaly, a neurological disorder that causes abnormally small brains and heads and mental disabilities.An Aedes aegypti mosquito.The Zika-carrying mosquito, Aedes aegypti, is in the same family with mosquitoes that can carry yellow fever, West Nile virus, chikungunya and dengue fever. So at first doctors were relieved that Zika appeared to be benign. Only 20 percent of those infected show any of its mild flu-like symptoms: fever, rash, headaches, muscle aches and red eyes. Once infected, the incubation period is likely to be only a few days and symptoms last less than a week, after which a person has developed immunity to the virus.Since its outbreak however, evidence has mounted that the Zika virus may cause microcephaly in infants born to women infected during pregnancy. Children with microcephaly who survive birth can face a lifetime of symptoms such as mental disability, seizures, hyperactivity, short stature, delayed motor and speech functions, facial distortions, balance and coordination problems.Scientists now fear Zika may also be associated with a rise in Guillain-Barré, a syndrome caused by any of several microbes in which the immune system attacks the nervous system.On Feb. 1, the World Health Organization called Zika “a public emergency of international concern,” putting it in the same category as the 2014 outbreak of Ebola. Since October 2015, more than 1 million cases of Zika and over 4,700 cases of microcephaly have been reported in Brazil. Before this outbreak, Brazil reported about 163 cases of microcephaly each year. WHO says that up to 4 million people in the Americas may soon become infected with the Zika virus.The first outbreak of the virus was reported in northeast Brazil in early 2015. By September, the number of children born with microcephaly had sharply increased, so a Brazil Ministry of Health task force was set up to study 35 of those infants. Infants are considered microcephalic if their head circumference is less than two standard deviations (SD) from the norm. The condition can have many causes, including exposure to drugs, environmental toxins or viral infections during the first 12 weeks of fetal development. The Brazilian task force found that the group it was studying had heads three SDs less than the norm. Neuroimaging showed that out of 27 infants tested, all had neurological abnormalities.A Microcephaly Epidemic Research Group was quickly assembled to study 1,000 pregnant women with Zika symptoms and no history of alcoholism, family health issues or other factors thought to contribute to microcephaly. (New York Times, Feb. 6)The virus is mainly spread through mosquito bites, but new evidence shows Zika may also be spread through sexual activity. Dallas health officials reported in early February that a woman in Texas had contracted Zika from an infected partner recently returned from Venezuela. New, unsubstantiated fears have arisen about contracting Zika through kissing.The countries most hard-hit by Zika, besides Brazil, are in Central and South America and the Caribbean and have high rates of unemployment and poverty. Women in these countries are being asked to put off getting pregnant for six to eight months. El Salvador has advised women to wait two years before having children. But poor women have little choice over their pregnancies, since abortion and contraception are expensive and not widely available. Abortions are illegal in most largely Catholic Latin American countries. In Brazil, it is legal only if the life of the woman is in danger or if the pregnancy is the result of a rape.The International Planned Parenthood Federation says that contraception and abortion must be included in the fight against the Zika virus. But the Vatican will not comment on whether it will alter its position on contraception or abortion in the light of Brazil’s dramatic rise in microcephaly.Global warming and diseaseThe Zika outbreak is a tragic example of what effects global climate change can have. Mosquitoes carrying the virus are prolific breeders in warm fresh water. Warming temperatures have triggered above-average rainfall, an exceptionally strong El Niño and the most severe flooding in South America in 50 years. In Brazil and Paraguay, floods in December caused 150,000 people to evacuate their homes.Women living in poor Latin American countries who are being asked to stop having children will suffer the most from the Zika outbreak. But it is polluting corporations in imperialist countries like the U.S. that are the most responsible for the crisis of global warming. As Betsey Piette wrote in Workers World over two years ago: “Half of these [carbon dioxide] emissions were produced over the last 25 years, after it was generally accepted by scientists that climate change resulted from burning coal and oil. … It was found that roughly 30 percent of greenhouse gas emissions were produced by just 20 of these companies.” (Dec. 12, 2013)At every international conference on climate change, the U.S. government has refused to commit to any curb on this country’s high output of carbon dioxide emissions. The female aegypti mosquito is an aggressive biter that feeds during the day, so mosquito bed netting doesn’t help prevent the infection. WHO says the best form of protection against Zika is to prevent mosquito bites: stay inside with air conditioning and screens on the windows, use insect repellents and wear thick clothing that covers arms and legs. For people living in poverty in a hot climate, air conditioning and thick clothing are not options. What Brazil is doingBrazil is a poor but developing country that during centuries of colonial rule followed by imperialist penetration has been plundered of its raw materials and labor. Its efforts to modernize have left it with a $270 billion national debt and a steady decline in economic growth since 2010. The government of President Dilma Rousseff is mounting a “mega-operation” to kill as many mosquitoes as possible before hosting the 2016 Olympics in August. Health officials are trying to inform the people about the danger while government troops are being employed to chlorinate and eradicate stagnant water where aegypti mosquitoes breed, as well as spray insecticide in the neighborhoods.The British company Oxitec, associated with Oxford University, has developed mosquitoes with a genetically modified gene that prevents future larvae from becoming reproducing adults. This gene was inserted into male mosquitos that were then released in the city of Piracicaba, Brazil. Only the males are released, since they don’t bite humans. The company reported an 82-percent decrease in the number of people contracting Zika in that area, compared to a nontreated area 1.5 kilometers away. Whether this technique can control the outbreak of Zika remains to be seen, however.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Hoosiers Testify at Heartland Hearing

first_imgIndiana Governor Mike Pence has sent a letter to the EPA expressing his opposition to a reduction in the RFS. “I believe that our nation is best served by an ‘all of the above’ energy strategy that incorporates all forms of energy,” Indiana Gov. Mike Pence wrote.  He added, “We need our wind, solar, nuclear, natural gas and coal resources to power our economy and provide the quality of life Hoosiers and other Americans are accustomed to experiencing. Indiana is one of the top manufacturing states in the country. Our competitive edge is in jeopardy as emissions standards, like those proposed by the EPA, drive up the cost of producing electricity.” Sue Ellsperman, testifies at Heartland Hearing. Photo by Joanna SchroederA group of Indiana state leaders and Hoosier farmers traveled to Iowa yesterday to testify in favor of biofuels. Iowa Governor Terry Branstadt called it the “Heartland Hearing.” Representatives from across the Midwest came to testify in support of renewable fuels and against the EPA proposal to reduce ethanol and biodiesel use in 2014.  Leading the Hoosier delegation was Lt. Governor  Sue Ellspermann who told HAT that Indiana produced a billion bushels of corn last year, that now farmers need a market for that corn, and that a reduction in the RFS will limit the market for that grain. Facebook Twitter Previous articleSenators Call for RFS RevisionNext articleTight Midwest Propane Supplies Running Up the Cost Gary Truitt “Since 2007, the RFS and biofuels have been critically important to the success of Hoosier farmers and have been an economic lifeline to rural communities who need this investment and the jobs more than ever,” Ellspermann said. “Indiana is producing more corn and soy than ever in the State’s history – and we will continue to be among the nation’s leaders in production.  It is our hope that the EPA will implement a sound RFS that puts our nation’s grain to good work.” In a one-on-one interview with HAT in Iowa, Ellspermann said the biofuels industry is part of the fabric of Indiana, “We have 13 ethanol plants and the largest biodiesel plant in the US in Indiana. These facilities provide jobs for our rural communities and a market for our farmers.” Home News Feed Hoosiers Testify at Heartland Hearing Others representing Indiana at the hearing included Bruce Hosier, Executive Director of the Randolph Economic Development Corporation and former mayor of Portland, IN.; Tim Phelps, Indiana Ethanol Producers Association; Kyle Cline, national policy advisor for Indiana Farm Bureau; and David Lyons, Vice President of Government Relations for Louis Dreyfus Commodities, LLC. Hoosiers Testify at Heartland Hearing SHARE Ted McKinneyAlso part of the Hoosier delegation was State Department of Agriculture Director Ted McKinney who told HAT, if the EPA proposal is adopted, Indiana communities will be affected. “The recent proposal from the EPA lowering the minimum requirements for the RFS will undermine our nation’s efforts to develop energy independence and strengthen our economy,” McKinney said.  “Along with Lt. Gov. Ellspermann, I am urging the USDA and EPA to exercise their authority and halt the enactment of the RFS proposal until it can be more thoroughly analyzed. The production of biofuels throughout the United States is a crucial issue, not only to those in agriculture, but to all concerned with building a renewable energy portfolio and a stronger economy.” McKinney said he expects the biofuels industry to continue to grow and innovate and that this will bring further growth and development to rural areas of Indiana. Thanks to Joanna Sshroeder of  Zimm Comm for help with coverage of this story By Gary Truitt – Jan 23, 2014 Hoosiers Testify at Heartland Hearing SHARE Facebook Twitter A number of Indiana farm leaders also made the trip to Iowa to testify. “Corn and soybean farmers from across Indiana and the country take pride in the role we have played in the development of the U.S. biofuels industry, an industry that has helped diversify our fuel supply, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, and created jobs and economic growth,” said David Lowe, president of Indiana Soybean Alliance.  Mike Shuter, a director of Indiana Corn Growers Association, also participated in a panel discussion at the hearing.Mike Shuter“Hoosier farmers grew a more corn last year than we ever have before, and corn prices have fallen to at or just below the cost of production,” said Shuter, a farmer from Madison County. “Now the EPA has proposed lowering the ethanol numbers in the Renewable Fuel Standard, and that would push demand down even further. That’s not good for family farmers and rural Indiana, especially communities with ethanol and soy biodiesel plants.”last_img read more

Obama opposes release of torture photos

first_img Reporters Without Borders expressed disappointment today that President Barack Obama intends to try to block the court-ordered release of photos depicting the abuse of prisoners by US military personnel in Afghanistan and Iraq.“Given the administration’s pledge last month not to fight the court ruling, as well as President Obama’s emphasis on promoting transparency and open government when he took office, the decision is very disappointing” stated the international press freedom organization.In a Freedom Of Information Act lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), a federal appeal court panel concluded that it was insufficient to claim the documents would endanger US troops and coalition forces, and ordered the Defense Department to release the photographs by May 28th 2009.In April, the Obama administration told a judge it would not oppose an order to release the photos in response to the ACLU’s lawsuit. However, President Obama took back his promise on Wednesday and claimed that publication of these photos would not add any additional benefit to the public’s understanding of the story.“This is a complete contradiction of the President Obama’s January 21st memorandum on the Freedom of Information Act, in which he stated that ‘speculative‘ or ‘abstract fears‘ were not sufficient reasons to justify excessive confidentiality and classification,” added the international press freedom organization. “ The government cannot dictate to the public what is news-worthy and what is not. This is a blow to press freedom and to democracy’s system of checks and balance. We urge the President to respect the court’s decision and stand by his earlier commitment to transparency and accountability.” May 19, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Obama opposes release of torture photos United StatesAmericas Organisation RSF_en NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says to go further News June 3, 2021 Find out more Newscenter_img Help by sharing this information News June 7, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts United StatesAmericas Follow the news on United States April 28, 2021 Find out more News WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalistslast_img read more

Later this year, World of Warcraft ® players will return to the fel-scarred ruin of Hellfire Peninsula to stop the incursion at its source; rediscover what lurks below the fungal forests of Zangarmarsh; and face down Illidan the Betrayer once again in Burning Crusade Classic ™, Blizzard Entertainment’s authentic recreation of the acclaimed first World of Warcraft expansion. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210219005507/en/ Return to Outland to face Illidan the Betrayer in Blizzard Entertainment’s World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade Classic, coming later this year. (Graphic: Business Wire) “The World of Warcraft community made it clear that they wanted WoW Classic, and now they’re eager to continue their journey into The Burning Crusade,” said J. Allen Brack, president of Blizzard Entertainment. “Since the launch of WoW Classic and as we rolled out content updates, we’ve learned a lot about what players want from an experience like this in 2021. We’re building on that to ensure players’ new adventures in Outland are as epic as ever, whether they’re taking a return trip through the Dark Portal or joining us for the very first time.” Burning Crusade Classic builds on the epic foundation of World of Warcraft Classic, providing players with an opportunity to experience the next legendary chapter in the Warcraft ® saga. Through the launch and over the course of content updates to follow, the recreation will bring back the features of the 2007 original, including:The Shattered Realm of Outland: Traverse the treacherous crags and spires of Blade’s Edge Mountains, where even dragons fear to roam; hunt alongside the uncorrupted Mag’har orcs among the floating islands of Nagrand; battle demonic agents of the Legion in the shadow of the Black Temple; and much more.Two New Playable Races: Fight for the Horde as the blood elves, seeking a new source of the arcane power that once sustained them, or join the Alliance as the draenei, exiles from Outland in search of a new home.Gather at the Arena Gates: Assemble your most trusted allies and prove your PvP prowess in 2v2, 3v3, or 5v5 combat in Arenas such as the Ring of Trials and the Circle of Blood.Take Wing on Flying Mounts: Take flight in the chaotic skies of Netherstorm and soar over fel-touched Shadowmoon Valley with the introduction of flying mounts in Outland.Master Challenging Raids and Dungeons: Conquer 5-player dungeons set in the crystalline fortress of Tempest Keep and the Caverns of Time, where heroes bear witness to Azeroth’s past. Raid the haunted halls of 10-player Karazhan, and gear up over time for a climactic confrontation against Kil’jaeden in 25-player Sunwell Plateau.New Options for Heroes: Carve gems of power to socket into players’ gear with the Jewelcrafting profession; choose between the Aldor or Scryer factions in Shattrath and earn their unique rewards; create a paladin on the Horde or a shaman on the Alliance; and more. Before entering the Dark Portal, players will be presented with a choice for each of their existing WoW Classic characters: to progress to the Burning Crusade era along with the rest of the Horde and Alliance heroes on their realm, or to continue adventuring in the original WoW Classic content on all-new “Classic Era” servers coming with the rollout of Burning Crusade Classic. Players who want to experience the best of both worlds will have the option to “clone” each WoW Classic character as an optional paid service, allowing each hero to venture forth into Burning CrusadeClassic while their copies continue their original adventure on a Classic Era realm. Further details on each realm type and the available options for characters will be provided at a later date. For players who don’t have characters ready for the journey beyond the Dark Portal and are interested in adventuring in Outland with their friends, Blizzard will also offer an optional level-58 character boost service closer to the expansion’s launch. To help preserve the integrity of players’ accomplishments in WoW Classic, this boost will not be usable on Classic Era realms or on the new blood elf or draenei races; in addition, players will be limited to boosting only one character per World of Warcraft account. Further details, including details around pricing and availability, will be announced at a later date. As with WoW Classic, access to Burning Crusade Classic will be included in players’ existing World of Warcraft subscriptions at no additional cost. In the near future, Blizzard Entertainment will be kicking off a beta test for Burning Crusade Classic, calling upon players to give feedback on the experience and help ensure the expansion strikes the best possible balance between authenticity and enjoyment. More information on the beta test, including how to sign up, will be announced at a later date. For more information on Burning Crusade Classic, visit www.wowclassic.com.
