Senators Call on EPA to Boost Biodesiel Volumes

first_img Senators Call on EPA to Boost Biodesiel Volumes Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE By Andy Eubank – Jul 20, 2015 A bipartisan group of 36 senators are urging the EPA to increase the proposed volumes set for biodiesel production under the federal Renewable Fuel Standard. The senators, led by Chuck Grassley of Iowa, among others, wrote to the EPA expressing concern the current RFS proposal fails to recognize the domestic biodiesel industry’s production capacity. The senators noted that the EPA’s prior delays in setting biodiesel volumes led to uncertainty and hardship for U.S. biodiesel producers and thousands of their employees, causing reduced production and even shutdowns, leading to layoffs and lost economic productivity.  The EPA’s proposed volumes for 2014 through 2017 are expected to become final by November 30th.  The public comment period on the current proposal closes July 27th.Indiana Senator Joe Donnelly is one of the 36 members signing the letter.Source: NAFB News Service Previous articleFederation of State Beef Councils Awards GrantsNext articlePurdue Ag Opens Nominations for 2 Top Awards Andy Eubank Home Energy Senators Call on EPA to Boost Biodesiel Volumes SHARElast_img read more

When did you come here? Who paid for you?”Vargas came to the U.S. when he was 12. Five years ago, while working at the Washington Post, he revealed that he was an undocumented immigrant.Vargas advocates for immigrants and the rights of undocumented immigrants.  Vargas said he once refused to be legalized because his advocacy for the DREAM Act would have been in vain.The DREAM ACT is the Dream Action Coalition founded by Vargas. Vargas is seeking to establish local, state and federal policies that secure fairness for the country’s diverse immigrant community without discrimination based on immigration status or national origin.Vargas stressed that people should ask where their ancestors came from to know who they are. However, Vargas said many white people feel uncomfortable talking about race.“People say that immigrants should be deported, yet they want to use them for cheap labor,” Vargas said. “The U.S cannot have it both ways.”When he spoke earlier in the day to students in a class focused on diversity, Vargas was asked his thoughts on the argument that immigrants take Americans jobs.“Immigrants are not taking away anybody’s job,” Vargas said. Vargas said the labor in which immigrants work is difficult and cheap, and American’s don’t want to do it.Vargas is now working on a documentary titled EmergingUS that expresses all issues faced by non-white people.

Clampdown on media coverage of Egypt’s constitutional referendum

first_img Organisation EgyptMiddle East – North Africa Freedom of expression News RSF_en A committee created by the pro-government National Journalists Syndicate to monitor media coverage of the referendum said it had received reports of at least six incidents. One of these complaints was filed by the newspaper Bawabat al-Ahram, which said that one of its reporters, Mohammed Ali, was prevented from taking photos when he went to a voting station in the Cairo suburb of Ain Shams and showed his press card. January 22, 2021 Find out more The ban on publishing partial results was imposed by the National Election Authority, which is in charge of the voting. It nonetheless announced at a press conference in Cairo on 20 April that the media had the right to cover both the voting and the vote count, but many reporters have in practice been prevented from attending vote count operations. “By banning journalists from reporting the partial results of a vote for the first time ever, the Egyptian authorities have shown that they are determined to clamp down even more on the dissemination of public interest information,” RSF’s Middle East desk said. “We call on the National Election Authority to ensure that journalists are able to exercise their right to attend vote count operations, as it promised.” February 6, 2021 Find out more News EgyptMiddle East – North Africa Freedom of expression The newspaper Al Mashhad told RSF that 30 of its reporters were denied permission to cover the vote count although they had previously filed all of the required papers within the stipulated deadlines, including a letter to the High Council for Media Regulation. to go further Follow the news on Egypt Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information February 1, 2021 Find out more Al Jazeera journalist Mahmoud Hussein back home after four years in prison April 25, 2019 Clampdown on media coverage of Egypt’s constitutional referendum Detained woman journalist pressured by interrogator, harassed by prison staff News Less press freedom than ever in Egypt, 10 years after revolution News Egypt is ranked 163rd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index, two places lower than in 2018.

Mauritania still violating press freedom after restoring Internet

first_img Help by sharing this information July 5, 2019 Mauritania still violating press freedom after restoring Internet Follow the news on Mauritania The Mauritanian authorities have finally restored the Internet access they disconnected one day after the 22 June presidential election, but Reporters Without Borders (RSF) urges them to stop intimidating the most critical journalists and, in particular, to free an outspoken TV presenter held since 3 July. Organisation News MauritaniaAfrica Condemning abuses ImprisonedFreedom of expression March 13, 2020 Find out more July 6, 2020 Find out more Ahmedou Ould Wediaa, a journalist with the Mauritanian TV channel Al-Mourabitoune who is well known for his virulent criticism of outgoing President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz, was arrested at his Nouakchott home of the evening of 3 July. The authorities have provided no information about his arrest.”We fear that this is yet another arrest that amounts to intimidation,” one of his colleagues told RSF.Another journalist known for criticizing the government, Camara Seydi Moussa, had just been released on 3 July after being held for a week. RSF has learned that the state security agents who arrested Moussa at his home, seizing all of the mobile phones and laptops there, accused him of disputing the election results during phone conversations, suggesting that his calls had been tapped.Moussa’s release came at the same moment that the authorities restored Internet access, ending 11 consecutive days without any Internet connection, several sources told RSF.“Restoring the Internet is good news, but the many press freedom violations are helping to sustain a climate of fear for anyone questioning the position taken by the authorities since the disputed presidential election,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “We urge the authorities to free the journalist still being held, to end the violations of the confidentiality of sources by the security services, and to resort to no further Internet cuts. Such methods are a million miles from the democratic transfer of power from one elected president to another that the authorities say they want to achieve.”Journalist in the government’s sightsAround 30 Mauritanian journalists staged a sit-in yesterday to demand Wediaa’s release. This is not Wediaa’s first run-in with the authorities. In 2015, a presidential press conference that was being broadcast live was interrupted by the president for several minutes because Wediaa insisted on asking him several questions.The following year, the High Authority for Press and Broadcasting (HAPA) suspended Wediaa’s TV discussion programme for a month, accusing him of encouraging “separatism” and of referring to the existence of slavery in Mauritania.The existence of slavery, although officially prohibited, is an extremely sensitive issue in Mauritania and visiting foreign reporters are often deported if they try to cover it.Despite having completed a sentence on a heresy charge, the blogger Mohamed Cheikh Ould Mohamed Mkhaitir has been held incommunicado for more than five and a half years for writing that religion was used to justify discriminatory practices, including slavery. RSF and several other NGOs wrote to the president on the eve of the election calling for his release.Mauritania is ranked 94th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index, after falling 22 places in a single year. to go further RSF backs joint op-ed by 120 West African media and journalists calling for Beninese journalist’s releasecenter_img News MauritaniaAfrica Condemning abuses ImprisonedFreedom of expression Mauritanian reporter held for two days over Facebook post News News Journalists face archaic sanction of capital punishment in some parts of the world RSF_en May 20, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts Rally of Mauritanian journalists to call for an end to the arrests of journalists in Nouakchott on July 4, 2019 last_img read more

Louisville shooting suspect arrested as family of victim speaks out

first_imgBlakeDavidTaylor/iStockBy ROSA SANCHEZ and MEREDITH DELISO, ABC News(LOUISVILLE, Ky.) — The suspect behind Saturday’s fatal shooting in Louisville, Kentucky, has been arrested.Steven Nelson Lopez was taken into custody by police after being caught on surveillance video opening fire in Jefferson Square Park during a protest against Breonna Taylor’s death.Lopez will be charged with murder, according to authorities.On Saturday night, Lopez shot into the crowd of protesters and fatally injured a photographer, Tyler Gerth, 27, who died at the scene despite paramedics’ help.Another protester was also injured, and Lopez was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.“I am deeply saddened by the violence that erupted in Jefferson Square Park tonight, where those who have been voicing their concerns have been gathered,” Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer said in a statement late Saturday. “It is a tragedy that this area of peaceful protest is now a crime scene. My thanks to the first responders who assisted at the scene.”Lopez had previously attended protests at the park and been arrested twice before on rioting related charges, according to Louisville police.Saturday’s demonstration was in response to Taylor’s shooting death by Louisville police in March, when officers executing a no-knock search warrant shot her in her sleep.“While most protesters in the park have been largely peaceful, things changed last night when shots rang out in the park, leaving one dead and one other shot,” the Louisville Metro Police Department said in a statement Sunday morning. “We are now clearing the park and it will stay cleared.”Gerth’s family released a statement Sunday afternoon.“Tyler Gerth (27), was a beloved son, cherished little brother, adored uncle to seven nieces and nephews and a trusted friend. We are devastated that his life was taken was from us far too soon,” the family said, according to Louisville ABC affiliate WHAS-TV. “Tyler was incredibly kind, tender hearted and generous, holding deep convictions and faith. It was this sense of justice that drove Tyler to be part of the peaceful demonstrations advocating for the destruction of the systemic racism within our society’s systems.”Family members said that despite their heartbreak, they “pray that his death would be a turning point and catalyst for peace in the city he loved so much.” Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Atmosphere-ocean-ice interactions in the Amundsen Sea Embayment, West Antarctica

first_imgOver recent decades outlet glaciers of the Amundsen Sea Embayment (ASE), West Antarctica, have accelerated, thinned and retreated, and are now contributing approximately 10% to global sea level rise. All the ASE glaciers flow into ice shelves, and it is the thinning of these since the 1970s, and their ungrounding from “pinning points” that is widely held to be responsible for triggering the glaciers’ decline. These changes have been linked to the inflow of warm Circumpolar Deep Water (CDW) onto the ASE’s continental shelf. CDW delivery is highly variable, and is closely related to the regional atmospheric circulation. The ASE is south of the Amundsen Sea Low (ASL), which has a large variability and which has deepened in recent decades. The ASL is influenced by the phase of the Southern Annular Mode, along with tropical climate variability. It is not currently possible to simulate such complex atmosphere-ocean-ice interactions in models, hampering prediction of future change. The current retreat could mark the beginning of an unstable phase of the ASE glaciers that, if continued, will result in collapse of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, but numerical ice-sheet models currently lack the predictive power to answer this question. It is equally possible that the recent retreat will be short-lived and that the ASE will find a new stable state. Progress is hindered by incomplete knowledge of bed topography in the vicinity of the grounding line. Furthermore, a number of key processes are still missing or poorly represented in models of ice-flow.last_img read more
