Harvey Weinstein indicted in New York rape case

first_imgNEW YORK, N.Y. – Harvey Weinstein was indicted Wednesday on rape and criminal sex act charges, furthering the first criminal case to arise from a slate of sexual misconduct allegations against the former movie mogul.Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. said the indictment brings Weinstein “another step closer to accountability.”The announcement came hours after Weinstein’s lawyers said he’d decline to testify before the grand jury because there wasn’t enough time to prepare him and “political pressure” made an indictment unavoidable.A statement issued through a Weinstein spokesman said the 66-year-old film producer, who has denied the allegations, learned of the specific charges and the accusers’ identities only after turning himself in Friday. With a deadline set for Wednesday afternoon to testify or not, his request for more time was denied, the statement said.“Finally, Mr. Weinstein’s attorneys noted that regardless of how compelling Mr. Weinstein’s personal testimony might be, an indictment was inevitable due to the unfair political pressure being placed on Cy Vance to secure a conviction of Mr. Weinstein,” the statement said, referring to Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr.Vance said in a statement that the Weinstein camp’s “recent assault on the integrity of the survivors and the legal process is predictable.”“We are confident that when the jury hears the evidence, it will reject these attacks out of hand,” Vance said.Weinstein was charged Friday with rape and criminal sex act charges involving two women in New York, as a grand jury continued hearing evidence in the case; the panel has been at work for weeks. Defendants have the right to testify in a grand jury’s secret proceedings but often don’t, for various reasons.Weinstein faces rape and criminal sex act charges involving two women in New York. Dozens more women have accused him of sexual misconduct ranging from harassment to assault in various locales.He has denied all allegations of nonconsensual sex, and his lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, said Tuesday that Weinstein was “confident he’s going to clear his name” in the New York prosecution.Brafman called the rape allegation “absurd,” saying that the accuser and Weinstein had a decade-long, consensual sexual relationship that continued after the alleged 2013 attack.The woman, who hasn’t been identified publicly, told investigators Weinstein confined her in a hotel room and raped her.The other accuser in the case, former actress Lucia Evans, has gone public with her account of Weinstein forcing her to perform oral sex at his office in 2004. The Associated Press does not identify alleged victims of sexual assaults unless they come forward publicly.Vance, a Democrat, came under public pressure from women’s groups to prosecute Weinstein after declining to do so in 2015, when an Italian model went to police to say Weinstein had groped her during a meeting.Police set up a sting in which the woman recorded herself confronting Weinstein and him apologizing for his conduct. But Vance decided there wasn’t enough evidence to bring charges.Gov. Andrew Cuomo, also a Democrat, ordered the state attorney general to investigate how Vance handled that matter.last_img read more

The corporate climb women locked out of old boys club in misguided

Toronto employment lawyer Sunira Chaudhri has fielded an increasing number of calls from her corporate clients worried about sexual harassment in their workplace — mostly from those wondering whether they need to change policies around co-ed one-on-one meetings, mentorship, office parties, business trips and dinners.“Some asked, ‘Should we be having the boardroom door open if it is just me and a female alone in a room?’” Chaudhri said.“Holiday parties were a huge issue too and of course, business travel is big as well because often you are sitting side-by-side 12 to 16 hours a day and you are not just working together, you are eating together, you are staying at the same hotel, consuming alcohol, entertaining clients, it can make for a very intimate scenario.”While Chaudhri has seen some workplaces show concern around how they should handle business travel or dinners after #MeToo, she said many small- and medium-size workplaces don’t have the resources to formally train workers and managers around handling sexual harassment or office dynamics.Others, she said, simply don’t have the nerve.“Forget about serious misconduct. Employers are still afraid about confronting that person that shows up at 9:05 every day, when they are supposed to be in at nine.”Lisa Kimmel, the Toronto-based president and chief executive officer of public relations and consultancy company Edelman, said she has had conversations with “a number of senior male business leaders in Canada,” who told her they were shying away from providing mentorship to female subordinates “out of fear of what might potentially happen” and in an effort to “reduce their risk profile to zero.”“When I first started hearing this, I had a literal allergic reaction,” Kimmel said.“Once the anger subsided, I realized that I wanted to raise awareness around this issue because if that is the way they feel, it means it might be a step backwards for (women) in terms of the advancements of their careers.”To stamp out such repercussions, Kimmel started hosting discussions between men and women in Edelman’s offices, in which employees were encouraged to be honest about their feelings around #MeToo and ask questions about what is acceptable.But many women questioned why conversations about drawing a line suddenly need to be had and why boundaries aren’t already clear to some.Sarah Kaplan, director of the University of Toronto’s Institute for Gender and the Economy, worries that focusing on such unintended consequences will prompt people to wonder if the #MeToo movement has gone too far.In her opinion, it hasn’t gone far enough.“It is just one more way that even an effort to lead to more liberation and equality has been co-opted,” she said.“It is as if people don’t understand what they shouldn’t be doing. As long as you don’t grab someone or proposition them, you can take someone to lunch …. It is completely obvious how to be professional.” A lawyer is asked whether a male executive should leave the door open when meeting with a woman.A consultant’s long-time male client will only take a meeting with her if someone else is in the room.A public relations executive hears from senior business leaders who say they are shying away from mentoring young women.The revelations relayed to The Canadian Press about being a woman in corporate Canada in recent months offer a glimpse into a male-dominated workforce that is quietly grappling with the unintended consequences of the Me Too movement.The movement emerged late last year following a slew of sexual misconduct allegations against film industry heavyweight Harvey Weinstein and other high profile American businessmen. Allegations of inappropriate behaviour have spread to a range of sectors north of the border as well — from politics to theatre to sports — but leaders in corporate Canada has so far been left unscathed.Still, women in business say they are facing a resulting “chilling effect” on their relationships with male colleagues and supervisors.They reported a noticeable decline in invitations to meetings, business trips and dinners — gatherings considered invaluable for career advancement.More importantly, they added, senior executives are increasingly hesitant to mentor female employees.It is a development that poses a threat to women who aim to rise to the highest corporate roles at a time when two-thirds of the companies included on the TSX 60 index of Canada’s largest companies did not include a single woman among top earners last year, according to a Canadian Press analysis.Most of the dozen women who spoke with The Canadian Press were hesitant to discuss the unintended consequences of #MeToo because they didn’t want to detract from the progress they hope the movement will make toward improving opportunities for women.They fear the misguided actions of some male leaders could instead reinforce the door to the old boys’ club, further hindering the hard-fought progress made by the few women who have been able to climb to the top of the corporate ladder.Lori McIntosh flew to Miami in early spring to meet with a client of 12 years, only to be told the company no longer allows its executives to take meetings alone, including with her.The founder of business consulting and executive search company Vim and Vixin said she agreed to the new terms because “business is business” and she was determined not to let the policy stand in the way of her company or career.“It is the new reality, but why should having someone in the room with me and the CEO hold me back?”It is as if people don’t understand what they shouldn’t be doing. It is completely obvious how to be professional read more

US producer prices rose in June at fastest pace in 13 months

WASHINGTON – Prices charged by U.S. producers rose in June at the fastest pace in 13 months, reflecting a big jump in the price of gasoline and other energy products.The Labor Department says that its producer price index, which measures cost pressures before they reach the consumer, increased 0.5 per cent in June. That was the largest one-month jump since a similar rise in May 2015.Energy prices were up 4.1 per cent last month while food costs rose 0.9 per cent.Core inflation, which excludes volatile food and energy, rose 0.4 per cent in June, the biggest uptick since January. Even with the June acceleration, producer prices are up just 0.3 per cent over the past 12 months, while core inflation is up a moderate 1.3 per cent.Those increases are similar to the moderate inflation being registered at the consumer level. A gauge of consumer prices preferred by the Federal Reserve has stayed below the Fed’s 2 per cent target for more than four years. The central bank boosted a key interest rate by a quarter point in December and signalled that it planned to raise rates another four times this year.But a weak start for the U.S. economy this year and financial market turbulence stemming from global weakness has so far kept the Fed on the sidelines. With inflation still at low levels, analysts believe the Fed will leave rates unchanged for a fifth time this year when officials next meet at the end of this month. Many analysts believe the Fed will raise rates only once or twice this year, with the first rate increase not coming until September at the earliest.For June, the 4.1 per cent rise in energy costs reflected a 9.9 per cent jump in the price of gasoline, the biggest increase since a 17.7 per cent rise in May 2015.The 0.9 per cent increase in food costs was the largest since a similar rise in January. The price of corn rose 10.7 per cent in June, the sharpest jump since August 2012, while meat prices were up 4 per cent. by Martin Crutsinger, The Associated Press Posted Jul 14, 2016 6:32 am MDT Last Updated Jul 14, 2016 at 7:40 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email In this Thursday, March 24, 2016, photo, Chase Ming activates the cap sealing machine on a bottle of vodka at the Cathead Distillery in Jackson, Miss.

Womens basketball preview Six new players ready to shine on promising OSU

OSU then-sophomore guard Kelsey Mitchell (3) dribbles the ball during a game against Nebraska on Feb. 18 at the Schottenstein Center. Credit: Lantern File PhotoWhen the Ohio State women’s basketball team faces Ashland University in an exhibition game on Sunday, fans will finally get to see the new wave of talent donning the Scarlet and Gray.Gone are guards Cait Craft — who provided both defense and leadership — and Ameryst Alston, who was second on the 2015-16 team in scoring at 18.3 points per game. Forward Kalpana Beach and center Lisa Blair have departed the program as well.But the Buckeyes will debut six new players this season, starting with freshmen guards Kiara Lewis and Jensen Caretti, and forward Tori McCoy, who all ranked within the top-31 in their class by ESPN.“I think all three of our freshmen are going to really contribute this year,” OSU coach Kevin McGuff said. “They’ve got a lot of talent. They are going to be really great in our program.”OSU will also welcome the additions of three transfers. Redshirt junior forward Stephanie Mavunga (previously at North Carolina) and redshirt sophomore guard Sierra Calhoun (Duke) will jump right into the Buckeyes’ lineup. Redshirt junior guard Linnae Harper (Kentucky) will have to wait until the end of OSU’s fall semester before hitting the court.All six players bring plenty of on-the-court talent to the Buckeyes, but Mavunga also believes that she has taken on an important vocal leadership role with the team.“That’s one of the biggest things that drives a team to really be great,” Mavunga said. “If the team is really quiet out there, especially on defense, then you don’t really know what’s going on.”With the additions of Mavunga and McCoy, OSU now boasts more size in the interior, something that hurt last year’s team. In the Buckeyes’ season-ending, 78-62 Sweet-16 loss to Tennessee in the NCAA Tournament, Volunteers’ center Mercedes Russell put up a game- and career-high 25 points.“We’ve got a little bit more presence around the basket,” McGuff said. “We need to utilize people and get them the ball.”New faces, new depthWith the talented additions, OSU is looking at one of its deepest rosters in recent memory. Throughout this offseason, Buckeyes’ coaches and players have been harping on the team’s new depth and what it could mean for the program.“I think it put us in a little bit better position here early on, hopefully,” McGuff said.OSU wasn’t in too great of a situation early on last year, dropping its first two regular season contests. The Buckeyes fell 88-80 to No. 2 South Carolina in the season opener on the road and followed it up with a 100-56 loss to No. 1 UConn in the home opener.McGuff believes that the competitive nature of this year’s team, thanks to depth, will help the team get off to a better start this time around.“Ultimately, that’s got to be what really drives this team — the competitive environment we have on a daily basis,” McGuff said.Mitchell expanding her roleAssociated Press preseason first-team All-American junior guard Kelsey Mitchell earns plenty of national praise, but there may be no one who speaks more highly of her than her coach.“She’s, in my opinion, the best player in college basketball,” McGuff said. “She obviously scores a lot of points, but she also makes others around her better.”The praise is warranted. Mitchell has accomplished quite a bit in her two seasons at OSU, including breaking her own single-season scoring record in her sophomore year after breaking the record the year before.She is widely regarded as one of the better players in all of women’s college basketball, but she never lets the spotlight shine too bright.“I just show up every day,” Mitchell said. “I just go to school, play basketball, go to school, play basketball. I don’t try to think ahead; I don’t try to think too far behind.”Mitchell said that she is excited for this year’s Buckeye team and what some of the newcomers can bring to the program.“I think the one thing that separates us from other teams is that we are down to try anything, whatever the team needs,” Mitchell said. “I think our new people will do that.”Sunday’s preseason game against Ashland will tip off at 1 p.m. at the Schottenstein Center, preparing OSU for its regular-season opener against Duquesne on Friday, Nov. 11 at St. John Arena. read more

Families of men lost on HMS Narwhal plan to pay tribute at

first_imgFor years they have wondered precisely where and how their loved ones lost their lives.Now, more than 70 years on, relatives of 58 sailors lost when a British submarine was sunk during a German attack are planning to visit the spot where it went down.It promises to be an emotional journey, especially as it might never have been on the cards.The wreck of the HMS Narwhal was only discovered by accident when members of a Polish diving team came across it while searching the North Sea for one of their own missing subs.The families of those lost on the Narwhal are now calling for the wreck to be treated as a war grave to protect it from scavengers. A sonar scan of the HMS Narwhal taken by the Polish Santi Diving teamCredit:Santi Diving Tomasz Stachura, the 52-year-old CEO of Santi Diving, said: “The size of this craft – 90 metres – is a very unique point of identification. We know that German U-boats are only 65-metres long, so we were prepared for this to be either the Narwhal or the Eagle, as no other Navies reported a loss in this area and there are only a few vessels like it in the world.”It was only analyzing the detailed 3D sonar scans that the authorities were able to confirm that it was indeed most likely the HMS Narwhal, lost in the Battle of Britain in July 1940 after being attacked by the Luftwaffe.The submarine had left its base in Blyth Northumberland to lay mines near German-occupied Norway. But the Germans, who had cracked the Royal Navy’s secret codes, knew the Narwhal’s route and attacked it with a bomber.  It was presumed sank in July 1940. The Luftwaffe’s report said the submarine had been hit in the stern. The side-scan sonar, in fact, reveals just that.   “The sonar shows the wreck is intact, except for the damage we can see on the stern exactly in the place where the pilot reported it,” Mr. Stachura said.The dive team continued their search for their own sub, the Eagle, without success and upon returning to Poland, contacted the Royal Navy about their find, but never heard back.Since their discovery the Polish divers have flooded with letters and emails from as far away as Malta and India from relatives of the British seamen lost on board.After a report was posted on the World Naval Ships Forum, Santi’s Facebook site began to overflow with messages from relatives of the lost seamen.“We decided to try to put all these different people in touch with one another,” said Mr Stachura.“We kept thinking, ‘what we can do for them?’ “We thought, ‘well, we are experts in diving, so we can  dive on Narwhal, perhaps take a memorial plaque and place flowers there so that all of these people they feel they can finally close their stories.’”Diving the HMS NarwhalIn diving, any depth below 60 metres (200 feet) is considered a “deep dive” requiring with special equipment necessary to stay down longer.The Narwhal is a diveable wreck lying 308 (94 metres) feet beneath the surface, in international waters.  The Santi dive team are masters of deep diving on wrecks in the frigid conditions of the Baltic Sea. They were the first divers to explore the lost Nazi aircraft carrier the Graf Zeppelin, which sunk off the Polish coast in 1947.The team use the most advanced technology available today – rebreathers, a computerized technology that mixes three gases (oxygen, helium and nitrogen) in accordance to depths and the body’s needs, while at the same time removing exhaled carbon dioxide using scrubbers, allowing the divers to stay underwater for longer. Because the diver’s breath is being recycled, the diver leaves no telltale bubble-trails  – ideal for specialized military or hard-core technical divers in scientific and commercial sectors.The Santi dive team wear their own dry suits with heating systems and rugged JJ CCR rebreathers, the same kind used by Scandinavian military units. Each diver also carries a bailout system.  Not only is the Narwhal a very deep dive, it is also lying just 80 metres from a gas pipeline, despite  regulations requiring pipelines be at least 500 metres from wrecks.“This makes it very complicated – the diving is very demanding, but there is a lot of paperwork necessary to get permissions, and we also need to talk to local divers in Scotland about the current,” said Mr. Stachura.Once all permissions have been secured, the team hopes to go out to the site next May with a 20-metre research vessel, with a team made up of six Polish divers and two British divers with expert knowledge of the North Sea currents. A contemporary tribute to the men lost at sea when the HMS Narwhal went down with all hands on board on August 5, 1940 George Clandon, 71, a retired plumber from Burscough, Lancashire, whose uncle, George Lawson, was an engineer on the Narwhal when it went down, said: “The Polish guys did a magnificent job finding the Narwhal, albeit with a little luck.  “As a family we are absolutely delighted they stumbled on the Narwhal. For years we had wondered where it had gone down and what happened had happened. Uncle George can really rest in peace now.”Tamara Lo, the daughter of the Narwhal’s Captain, Lieutenant Commander Robert Burch, said: “I was two in 1940 and only have the vaguest ‘memories’ of my father – rather like short loops of film.“So, after nearly 8 decades of knowing about the loss of the boat, the information that divers had found Narwhal made me cry. I never realised how numerous the crew was.”Mr Clandon, Mrs Lo and other relatives of those lost on board are to meet next month as a first step towards organising a memorial visit to the spot where HMS Narwhal went down next May.The mission would involve six Polish and two British divers going down to the wreck while the mens’ relatives cast a wreath onto the waters above from a research vessel on the surface.There are hopes the divers may be able to affix a permanent plaque to the wreck in memory of those whose remains still lie inside.The HMS Narwhal lies in international waters and is therefore not closed to dives, although it remains the property of the British government. Families of those who died have called for other diving teams to treat the wreck with the respect it deserves.Mr Clandon, who himself served in the Royal Navy until 1970, said: “My uncle was an engineer and would have taken the full impact of the bomb because he was in the engine room.“People didn’t really appreciate what he and the other sailors were doing. There was also a lot of secrecy surrounding their work as they were laying mines to stop enemy ships leaving their harbours.“Of course it should be treated as a war grave to protect it from scavengers and memorabilia hunters.”A Royal Navy Spokesperson said: “Any site of naval military remains, such as this one, should remain undisturbed as a mark of respect for all those who may have lost their lives on such vessels.”The Polish Santi Diving team, armed with sophisticated sonar equipment, confirmed the location of Narwhal earlier this year while on mission to try to find the ORP Orzel (Eagle), which disappeared mysteriously while on a secret mission for the Royal Navy’s 2nd submarine flotilla in 1940.It was no secret there was a 90-metre long vessel lying intact 140 miles off the east coast of Scotland, but no-one knew exactly whose vessel it was.The North Sea is littered with submarine wrecks – 150 sunken German U-Boats, as well as 50 British submarines, several French ones, two Dutch and one Polish one, the long lost Eagle that Poland has been searching for over the last decade.   center_img Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Fellaini fails in bid to sue New Balance over defective football boots

The Belgian international cannot sue New Balance, a judge ruled The Belgian international cannot sue New Balance, a judge ruledCredit:EDDIE KEOGH/REUTERS Marouane Fellaini had complained that his “defective” football boots were too tight, damaging his feet and causing untold pain.But a High Court judge has thrown out the Manchester United player’s bid to sue New Balance, concluding that his contract with the sportswear giant was invalid, meaning he did not have to be wearing them at all.Fellaini had attempted to sue the sports giant for £2 million in damages, claiming his boots had to be “steamed and stretched” and that the manufacturers had simply copied boots made by their competitor, Nike.Rosalina Investments, an investment company representing the Belgian national, said bosses at the sportswear firm breached an agreement to pay Fellaini if he wore the company’s boots.But lawyers representing New Balance asked Mrs Justice May to halt litigation, arguing that the claim had “no real prospect of success” and should be dismissed. Ian Mill QC, for New Balance, said there were no “reasonable grounds” for asserting that a valid contract had been in place.The judge heard that Fellaini signed a four-year deal with New Balance, worth £600,000-a-year, in 2012.But when that expired in September 2016, a new contract was never formally agreed.The judge acknowledged that both sides had continued to communicate beyond this date as if a contract was in place, including repeated communications about the alleged pain his boots were causing him.

But she described Fellaini’s refusal in December 2016 to attend any further personal appearances until a new contract was signed as “significant”.“It follows that the case based upon breach of contract is in my view bound to fail,” she said.Fellaini said he would appeal. read more

Flexible 20 micron thick RFID tags can be embedded in paper

first_imgRadio-frequency identification (RFID) tags have become commonplace because they allow for cheap and easy tracking on all kinds of objects. However, even the thinnest versions of these tags have remained too thick for embedding in materials like paper, and usually don’t respond well to being bent.Engineers at the North Dakota State University have solved that problem, though, by developing a new way of manufacturing the tags allowing them to be much thinner. So thin, in fact, they can be embedded in a sheet of paper without leaving a noticeable bump.The key to super thin RFID tags is the use of Laser Enabled Advanced Packaging, which uses a low-cost laser to join the RFID chip and antenna with a substrate. The silicon chip embedded is only 20 microns thick, so you can’t see or even feel it embedded in the paper. Another positive side effect of this manufacturing process is that silicon at this thickness becomes flexible, meaning you can bend and fold the paper without the RFID chip breaking.The same method can also be used to embed the RFID tag in a sheet of metal. However, the research team have come up with a way of removing the need for the antenna by using the metal the chip is embedded in as a replacement.Such a manufacturing breakthrough means that RFID tracking can be added to paper products such as banknotes, legal documents, or even tickets in a bid to stop counterfeiting. The fact their presence is completely hidden means you wont even know they are there. As for embedding them in metal, it could open up a few new silent security options for the consumer. For example, how about having an RFID tags embedded in your laptop so it can easily be identified if stolen while remaining impossible to remove?last_img read more

It looked like Armageddon Gas explosions destroy homes

first_imgLAWRENCE, Mass. — A series of gas explosions one official described as “Armageddon” left at least 10 people injured and ignited fires in at least 39 homes in three communities north of Boston on Thursday, forcing entire neighborhoods to evacuate as crews scrambled to fight the flames and turn off gas and electric lines to prevent further damage.Massachusetts State Police urged all residents with homes serviced by Columbia Gas in Lawrence, Andover and North Andover to evacuate, snarling traffic and causing widespread confusion as residents and local officials struggled to understand what was happening.“It looked like Armageddon, it really did,” Andover Fire Chief Michael Mansfield told reporters. “There were billows of smoke coming from Lawrence behind me. I could see pillars of smoke in front of me from the town of Andover.”Gov. Charlie Baker said state and local authorities are investigating but that it could take days or weeks before they turn up answers.“This is still very much an active scene,” he said. “There will be plenty of time later tonight, tomorrow morning and into the next day to do some of the work around determining exactly what happened and why.”Hours after the explosions, the utility’s parent company issued a brief statement saying its crews were still performing safety checks in the area.last_img read more

ASA Promotes Farm Safety Net in Senate Meeting

first_imgAmerican Soybean Association (ASA) First Vice-President Mike Yost and representatives of 11 other farmer organizations met with Republican Senators to discuss how to boost agricultural exports and support farm income. The organizations had sent an ASA-initiated letter to Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott (R-MS) on May 12 identifying specific actions to stabilize the farm economy.”The United States must keep its place at the international trading table if agriculture is to maintain its position as our nation’s leading export,” Yost said. “Congressional approval of IMF funding, Fast Track negotiating authority and renewal of Most Favored Nation Status for China are essential to our competitiveness abroad and stability in the farm economy at home. Congress must move quickly to prevent the ripples of the economic crisis in Korea and Indonesia from growing into shock waves in large markets, such as Japan and China.”Senators attending the meeting included Senators Richard Lugar (R-IN), Conrad Burns (R-MT), Pat Roberts (R-KS), Larry Craig (R-ID), Thad Cochran (R-MS), Charles Hagel (R-NE), Rod Grams (R-MN), Craig Thomas (R-WY), Charles Grassley (R-IA), Wayne Allard (R-CO), Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Dirk Kempthorne (R-ID). Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott (R-MS) also participated. The Senate Republicans said they intend to promote trade-oriented policy and tax reforms that will benefit agriculture. The agricultural representatives indicated they would focus their requests on specific legislation and administrative actions that can be supported on a bipartisan basis. ASA and the other groups also intend to promote an agriculture-friendly tax bill including full deductibility of health care costs, estate tax relief, and the Farm and Ranch Risk Management (FARRM) legislation that is currently pending in the House and Senate.The Senators told Yost and other agricultural group leaders that they would work to achieve these trade-oriented policy and tax reforms before Congress adjourns in October. The agricultural representatives indicated that they would broaden their coalition to ensure the strongest possible grassroots support for meaningful long-term and short-term improvements in the U.S. farm economy.The original list of initiatives proposed in the May 12 letter included:Fast Track negotiating authority must be actively sought by the Administration and approved by Congress;Legislation to provide $18 billion to replenish the international Monetary Fund should be immediately passed by the Congress;The Administration and Congress should modify U.S. sanctions policy to allow greater flexibility for food exports to restricted countries, including Iran and Cuba;The Administration should commit to seek agreement to end unfair trade practices in the next round of multilateral trade negotiations;Congress should appropriate $35 million for the Foreign Market Development Program to allow continued operation at the current level;Congress should restore funding to allow the Market Access Program to operate at its current level of $90 million;The Administration should immediately expand the Supplier Credit Guarantee Program under GSM-102 and -103, and increase the amount of risk covered under the program to 85 percent from the current level of 50 percent. The GSM-5 Direct Credit Sales Program should be reactivated;Budget baselines equal to annual outlays permitted by the WTO should be provided for the Export Enhancement Program. EEP should be used to combat unfair trade practices, or unused funds should be shifted to other WTO-legal export programs.Congress should immediately pass the Conference Report on the Research Title of the FAIR Act (S. 1150), providing $470 million for delivery of federal crop insurance and $600 million for national agricultural research objectives;Income averaging for farmers and ranchers and full deductibility of health insurance premiums should be made permanent in the next tax bill;Farm and Ranch Risk Management (FARRM) accounts should be authorized in the next tax bill.The letter was signed by the American Soybean Association, American Farm Bureau Federation, National Association of Wheat Growers, National Barley Growers Association, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, National Corn Growers Association, National Cotton Council of America, National Grain Sorghum Producers Association, National Grange, National Oilseed Processors Association, National Pork Producers Council and National Sunflower Association.last_img read more

Children read to dog at Vancouver Community Library

first_imgOn Wednesday, one of the dog days of summer, young readers waited their turn to read a book to Crunch, a golden retriever therapy dog at Vancouver Community Library.His golden locks brushed and his tongue hanging out, Crunch sauntered into the children’s section. He was welcomed with smiles, nods and wiggles.The Fort Vancouver Regional Library District has offered the Read to the Dogs program for about four years.“A lot of kids will read to the dog, but they’re too embarrassed to read aloud otherwise,” said Jacquelyn Keith, children’s services librarian for Vancouver Community Library. “The dogs are not judgmental when the kids stumble over a word.”The popular program is offered year-round, Keith said. They usually have three therapy dogs, but Wednesday only one dog visited the third floor of the downtown library.Crunch is owned by Michael and Scotty Richardson of Vancouver.First in line to read to Crunch were Alison Fuller of Vancouver and her granddaughters, Sofia Arellano, 9, and Lola Fuller, 6.

AK UAAs Earthquake 64 brings historic disaster to the stage

first_img(Courtesy of UAA theater department)Anchorage, Alaska. 1964. Eileen and Greg have been dating for about four years, eight months. During a Scrabble night with their friends, the two get into a fight over why Greg hasn’t proposed yet. After a bitter argument, Eileen leaves.Listen nowThe earthquake hasn’t happened yet, but ironically, the disaster will help bring the two of them back together.Eileen is portrayed by Angela Colavecchio — and is based on the life of Colavecchio’s real grandmother, Jeanne.“My grandmother has this kind of amazing story that’s almost cinematic, that I’ve heard since I was a kid. She was working downtown on 4th Avenue at a flower shop,” Collavechio said. “And when the earthquake hit, they were at work doing flower arrangements for Easter. And you know, the building basically cracked in two. There’s pictures that we’ve seen where the street is up by the roof.”Left to right: Actors Devan Hawkins, Jake Beauvais, Angela Colavecchio, Taren Haynes, Kaeli Meno, and Paitton Reid) (Photo by James Evans, UAA)Jeanne’s story is one of many portrayed in UAA’s Earthquake ’64 — a play that is ambitious to say the least. There are 61 scenes in the production.The play was written collaboratively by the entire cast and actor Taren Haynes says there were originally even more scenes.“And in a way it was kind of like throwing things at a wall to see what sticks, and of course it was a lumpy disaster at first because it’s rough,” Haynes said. “It’s a starting place. And then it’s been a process of iteration and reimagination and revision.”Throughout the two-hour play, the 12-actor ensemble portray many different characters affected by the earthquake — and in between some of the scenes, the actors even portray… themselves.Actress Devan Hawkins explained her character on stage:“A tough as nails, Texas-born, mother of three by the name of Genie Chance,” Hawkins said during a rehearsal. “Now Genie had a very special impact on me because she wasn’t looking for me, and I definitely wasn’t looking for her.”Some scenes even explain the history behind earthquakes.Actors Becca Padrick (left) and Jake Beauvais. (Photo by James Evans, UAA)“Why hello everyone,” actress Alexandra McCall said, in character. “I’m the obligatory scientist character, which you can tell from my lab coat and goggles.”Aside from various character plots — of which there are many — other parts include a physical demonstration of how earthquakes work (with the actors pretending to be tectonic plates) There are several musical numbers about what it’s like to be in a tub during an earthquake. There’s even an interpretive dance number about the dissolution of a marriage following the loss of children in a tsunami. The dance was set to Panic! At The Disco’s 2016 song, “Impossible Year.”UAA theater professor and play director Brian Cook is aware that the various — and plentiful — scenes aren’t conventional. But he says the jarring nature of the play is intentional.Actors Joshuah Rutten and Devan Hawkins (Photo by James Evans, UAA)“And so some of it is that we’re setting things opposite each other,” Cook said. “And hopefully the audience will be comparing and seeing that this event has impacted a whole bunch of people in a lot of different ways.”And Cook thinks the sheer quantity of scenes will mean that everyone can take something from the play.“Everybody will find their own connections and their own storylines here,” Cook said. “The things that matter to them is the stuff that they’ll take away from them. And hopefully they won’t worry that they didn’t catch everything. Because I don’t know that you could. I don’t know that I have, and I know the play better than anyone.”Earthquake ’64 is running at UAA starting tonight until February 18. Among the aforementioned elements, audiences can expect talking dogs, conspiracy theorists and even radio broadcasters.last_img read more

White ExCop Gets 20 Years In Prison For Fatal Shooting

first_imgPhoto via Twitter @HarryO1975Former North Charleston police officer Michael Slager.A white former South Carolina officer was sentenced to 20 years in prison on Thursday for fatally shooting an unarmed black motorist in the back in 2015, wrapping up a case that became a rallying cry for the Black Lives Matter movement.Attorneys for ex-North Charleston Officer Michael Slager said he shot 50-year-old Walter Scott in self-defense after the two fought and Scott grabbed Slager’s stun gun. They said race didn’t play a role in the shooting and Slager never had any “racial animus” toward minorities.Still, Slager pleaded guilty in federal court to violating Scott’s civil rights. As part of the plea agreement reached in May, prosecutors dropped state murder charges. A year ago, a state judge declared a mistrial when jurors deadlocked in that case.“This is a tragedy that shouldn’t have happened,” U.S. District Judge David Norton said.A bystander recorded the shooting on a cellphone, and it was shared around the world, setting off protests across the U.S. as demonstrators said it was another egregious example of police officers mistreating African-Americans.Scott’s family testified before the sentence was handed down and said they had forgiven Slager.“I’m not angry at you, Michael. Michael, I forgive you, and Michael, I do pray for you now and for your family, because we’ve gone through a traumatic time,” he said.The shooting angered local African-Americans who complained for years that North Charleston police harassed blacks, pulling them over or questioning them unnecessarily as they cracked down on crime. But after the shooting, the Scott family successfully pleaded for calm, asking everyone to let the justice system run its course.Two months after the shooting, a young white man killed nine black church members in a racially motivated attacked during a Bible study in Charleston. The family members of those victims struck a similar forgiveness tone after that attack.Before the sentence was handed down, the judge had to decide whether the shooting amounted to second-degree murder or manslaughter. Norton found that it was murder.“No matter what sentence I give, neither the Scott family nor the Slager family is going to think that it’s right,” the judge said.The bystander’s video started after the struggle between Slager and Scott and showed Scott running away and the officer firing eight times. Scott was hit in the back five times.After the shooting, Slager picked up his stun gun and placed it next to Scott. Slager contends he was securing the weapon. Prosecutors think he put it there to bolster his self-defense story.An emotional Slager told the Scott family that he was grateful for their forgiveness.“This tragic event that occurred in seconds has changed the lives of everyone involved,” he said. “With my actions that day, Walter Scott is no longer with his family, and I am responsible for that.”The judge also found that Slager, 36, obstructed justice when he made statements to state police after the shooting.A pre-sentencing report for Slager found that he committed manslaughter and recommended 10 to nearly 13 years in prison. But the judge was not bound by that review.If Slager had faced another state trial and been convicted of murder, he could have been sentenced to anywhere from 30 years to life in prison.Convictions in police officer shootings are uncommon in the U.S. and prison time is even rarer.South Carolina has been aggressive in charging white officers who shoot unarmed black people. Four have pleaded guilty in state or federal court in the past six years. But only Slager and former state trooper Sean Groubert, who shot a man as he tried to get his wallet during a seat belt violation check, will have been sent to prison. Groubert was sentenced to five years behind bars.___Kinnard can be reached at http://twitter.com/MegKinnardAP . Read her work at https://apnews.com/search/meg%20kinnard . Sharelast_img read more

Uttarpara to get new water treatment plant

first_imgKolkata: A water treatment plant with capacity of 55 million gallon is coming at Uttarpara in Hooghly district.A review meeting to take stock of the work was held by state Municipal Affairs minister Firhad Hakim at the conference hall of Kolkata Metropolitan Development Authority (KMDA) on Tuesday. “The Palta water treatment plant came up before the Independence. Now Uttarpara is getting a water treatment plant which happens to be the largest in the state since independence. It will be responsible for supplying water in seven municipalities in Hooghly and about 10 adjoining panchayat areas. The supply line will be similar to that followed in Kolkata Municipal Corporation,” Hakim said after the meeting.

According to the chairman of Uttarpara Municipality, Dilip Yadav, work to develop the infrastructure for the water treatment plant such as laying of pipeline for water supply and construction of water tanks have started since five months. The complete work will take around two years. The estimated cost for the project is Rs 1,760 crore. “Work was delayed because of the Model Code of Conduct (MCC) that was in effect because of the elections. There were some problems regarding the contractor firm selected for executing the work. The minister not only took stock of the progress of work but also gave necessary instructions on how to speed up work,” an official of Uttarpara Municipality, who attended the meeting said.last_img read more

What did you like about Drew Stantons game agains

first_imgWhat did you like about Drew Stanton’s game against the Raiders?“He was really accurate and no hesitation. And he has been. He’s been all of OTAs. It’s the best, by far, I’ve seen him in OTAs.”How much will he play this week?“Another whole quarter.”Once Haason Reddick gets up to speed and you’ve got Budda Baker, too, with the ability to rush the quarterback like Tyrann Mathieu. Do you like that versatility to keep offenses off balance?“Oh, heck yeah. That’s what it’s all about. Not knowing who’s always coming. It’s not always Ty that’s coming. So, yeah, the more guys you can put out there that can cover, can blitz, can play the run, play better defense. And fast.”What does this offensive line have to improve upon from last year?“Just consistency. So far so good in when they’ve been out there against other people. Nobody got really close to Carson (Palmer) except the one long pass, but play that solid.”Does it still look like D.J. Humphries might try to practice today?“Yeah, he’ll get extended work this afternoon.”How close is Jarvis Jones?“No luck yet on the epidural so we may have to do another one.”Does the injury to Bynes set him back or was he in good standing? GLENDALE, Ariz. – Head coach Bruce Arians, now in his fifth year with the Arizona Cardinals, meets the media each day during training camp.Here, in this space, we’ll highlight many of the key topics and personnel conversations he has with reporters following the morning walk-through.“Pretty solid practice yesterday. I’m still not—it’s kind of getting like boring out there. They’re getting bored with each other, looking more forward to games. You have to fight through that. I think we’ll fight through it better today. Other than that, it was a pretty solid practice. Top Stories “No, it sets him back. He flashed and like most guys you get off the street they think they’re in shape but they’re not in football shape.”What’s wrong with Philip Wheeler?“Foot. It’s getting close; probably another week.”Any of those young undrafted wide receivers doing enough to stick around?“Carlton (Agudosi) was looking good before he got hurt. (Krishawn) Hogan does some good things and some bad things. The best guy has been little ‘Smoke’. He’s been wide-ass open, we just haven’t hit him.”Follow Craig Grialou on Twitter Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling (AP Photo) “We’ll have to see. You have to see it in games. It’s one thing in practice, it’s another thing in games the opportunities that he creates for himself, but h e should be back to the player he was.”On that boredom the players may be experiencing, is there anything you and the coaches can do to help fight that?“No, just see a different color jersey. There’s a different excitement level for the Raiders practice and there will for the Bears practice because I don’t call them games because you ain’t out there but 15 or 20 plays but there’s a different level of excitement.”Are you itching to call plays?“No. I’ll get all I want next week and I’ve done enough of it in this camp. In Atlanta, I will call the plays in Atlanta.”Who is calling plays this week?“Byron (Leftwich).”When you have Leftwich or Harold Goodwin first call plays do you sit down with them?“Well, you let them do it in practice so that they get practice for it. I scheduled an actual period yesterday that was a scripted period that went to a call-it period just so he could practice it.”Will you keep five receivers?“We’ll probably keep six.”Are they here now?“That’s yet to be determined.” “Nothing new injury wise. Josh Bynes looks like he could be a week from his hamstring. He’ll probably miss this game.”How is Markus Golden?“He’s just got a sore foot.”John Brown after practice yesterday indicated he’s not right—“That’s obvious. He ain’t practicing.”He mentioned the sickle cell trait is slowing him down. Have you seen that?“Not at all. I didn’t see it at all in the spring. He’s got a quad that’s slowing him down.”He said the sickle cell trait takes him longer to recover.“That is a fact.”So what does that do to your wide receiver core?“Well, hopefully it’s not two months to recover. When the muscle heals, he’ll be ready. It does affect differently—some guys are slow healers, some guys are fast healers.”Will you have the patience to let him recover at his pace?“I don’t have any choice. He can’t run, he can’t play. Now if he can’t run long enough, we got to replace him.”Larry Fitzgerald was supposed to have the day off yesterday. Might him practicing be in response to your unhappiness with the wide receivers?“Yeah, I think he wanted to help lead his group and hopefully he’ll take today off.” What does that say about Fitzgerald?“You can’t say anything more about Larry that hasn’t been said. He takes care of his room as good as anybody.”Outside of Fitzgerald and Jaron Brown are the other receivers on equal footing fighting for a spot?“Yeah, everybody has a good day, everybody has a bad day. J.J. (Nelson) was really looking well and he just dropped a couple balls, but he’s been probably the next most consistent guy. Chad (Williams) jumped out there yesterday because he had some fresh legs, but then he dropped a touchdown.”Do you think Williams can contribute this year?“I think in time. Around Thanksgiving probably. There are other things he can do because he’s big and strong. He can play on special teams, but it’s going to be very hard to get a hat on Sunday.”How about Brittan Golden?“Brit has always been solid. He’s a core special teamer. Whenever he plays, he’s made plays. He just, unfortunately, got that groin on that long pass the other night.”With Jaron Brown, how cautious do you have to be with his knee?“Not at all. The doctor gives you the ‘Ok’ you’re good. He’s been cleared so he doesn’t need any days off.”How good can Tyrann Mathieu be?
