Pence Says Immigration Reform Vital for Indiana Agriculture

first_imgBut immigration reform faces an uphill battle, especially among Republicans. According to the Post-ABC poll, 37 percent of Republicans say voting for a path to citizenship is a deal-breaker for them, while 12 percent say voting against it is a deal-breaker. The Q poll, similarly, shows that 36 percent of Republicans would be less likely to support someone who votes for a path to citizenship, while 15 percent would be more likely.  In addition, more than two-thirds of Americans don’t believe that Congress will be able to work together to pass immigration reform, according to a poll released Friday.

Facebook Twitter Pence Says Immigration Reform Vital for Indiana Agriculture Home Indiana Agriculture News Pence Says Immigration Reform Vital for Indiana Agriculture SHARE Megan Ritter with Indiana Farm Bureau says, after decades of neglect, immigration policy is finally getting some serious attention in Washington, “Immigration reform has more momentum in Washington than we have had in a long time.” She is optimistic the legislation will continue to move forward and that the agricultural component will remain intact, “There is a recognition that immigration reform without an agricultural package is no reform at all.” She told HAT it is possible that reform legislation will pass Congress by the end of the year. By Gary Truitt – Jun 2, 2013 SHARE Pence Says Immigration Reform Vital for Indiana AgricultureIndiana Governor Mike PenceAs Congress returns to work this week, the Farm Bill will be at the top of the Senate’s legislative list, but work is also continuing on an immigration reform package which is just as important to agriculture as the Farm Bill. The immigration reform package that passed the Senate Judiciary Committee last month contains a provision that would provide a way for current agricultural workers to become documented employees.  The program has been endorsed by both farm and labor groups. Indiana Governor Mike Pence says immigration reform is important for the Hoosier Ag economy, “I still think it is possible to obtain immigration reform that meets the needs of our economy especially our agricultural economy, but I hope we can achieve that in a way that confirms our commitment to border security and the rule of law.” Pence supports a guest worker program, but says border integrity is also important, “Hoosiers, like most Americans, are very open to a 21st century guest worker program that meets the needs of our economy both in the cities and on the farm.” Pence told HAT people will support such a program if it adheres to the rule of law.last_img read more

Farm Bureau Wants Tweaks to Drone Rules

first_img By Hoosier Ag Today – Jun 23, 2016 Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Farm Bureau Wants Tweaks to Drone Rules Previous articlePurdue, DuPont Pioneer to Host Plant Science SymposiumNext articleMeat Stays On Military Menus Hoosier Ag Today SHARE Agriculture should be one of the largest industries to benefit from the new drone rules issued Tuesday from the Federal Aviation Administration. The American Farm Bureau says it will continue working with the FAA to tweak certain restrictions in the rules. They suggested several changes to FAA rules, including not requiring drones be operated in the user’s line of sight or not operated directly over people, but those suggestions weren’t adopted. The obvious challenge is farmers have a lot of land to cover and some of it is not contiguous. The group’s Director of Congressional Relations, R.J. Karney, gave the FAA credit for building in flexibility by allowing waivers to those restrictions. He hopes this will help build a case for more fine-tuning of the rules to help the technology take off for farmers and ranchers.Agriculture could make up almost 80 percent of expected commercial drone use. Drones could map terrain or monitor fields for pest and disease pressure, just to name a few of the expected uses.Source: NAFB News Service Farm Bureau Wants Tweaks to Drone Rules SHARE Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Taliban target media during Kunduz takeover

Nine of its 12 employees are women. Reporters Without Borders is very worried about the situation of the media in Kunduz, which continues to be controlled by the Taliban, and about the fate of several journalists of whom there has been no news since yesterday morning.Around 100 journalists work in Kunduz province, which has at least five radio stations, three TV stations and five newspapers, including two dailies. According to the information obtained by Reporters Without Borders, the armed forces were unable to protect journalists and media outlets.“We remind all parties to the conflict – both state and non-state actors – of their obligation to protect journalists,” said Reza Moini, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Afghanistan desk.“International law – including the Geneva Conventions and their additional protocols – forbids deliberate attacks by state or non-state actors against media outlets, journalists and other civilians. Attacks on civilian targets constitute war crimes.”Rahimullah Samandar, the head of the Afghan Independent Journalists Association, told Reporters Without Borders: “Some of the journalists were forced to flee by their own means to Kunduz airport, to which the government troops had retreated. All of the media have stopped working.”The seizure of Kunduz has been hailed as a “great victory” by Taliban chief Mullah Akhtar Mansoor, who was added to the Reporters Without Borders list of “Predators of Press Freedom” this summer after it was reported that Mullah Omar died in 2013.

Police release video of Jussie Smollett with noose around his neck

first_imgChicago Police Department(CHICAGO) — Portions of police video obtained in connection to the Jussie Smollett case have been released, giving a never-before-seen-look into the controversial case.Some 69 hours of police video were released Monday, with two videos showing the moment when police first arrived at the actor’s residence after receiving a 911 call that alleged he was the victim of a hate crime.In the police body camera footage, Smollett is seen with a noose around his neck. The video also records Smollett asking the officers to turn off their recordings.Another group of video clips shows the moment when the police apprehend the two brothers who allege they helped Smollett stage the attack.The videos show Abimbola and Olabinjo Osundairo as they were arrested on Feb. 13.The two men, Smollett initially said, shouted racist and homophobic slurs at him as a rope was wrapped around his neck and an unknown chemical was poured on him. The alleged assailants, police were told, yelled “MAGA country,” an apparent reference to President Donald Trump’s “Make American Great Again” slogan.The brothers have since filed a federal defamation lawsuit against Smollett’s attorneys, claiming that the lawyers publicly blamed the brothers for the attack.The new release of the video tapes comes days after a judge decided to appoint a special prosecutor to look into the Cook County prosecutor’s original decision to dismiss charges against Smollett.Smollett, an actor who starred on the television show “Empire,” had all of the charges against him dropped, despite prosecutors saying they believed he fabricated the attack. Smollett has maintained that he did not stage the attack.The new special prosecutor investigation isn’t the only one that will be giving a second look at the case. Two law enforcement sources told ABC News in March that the FBI would be reviewing the case.The decision to drop the charges against Smollett was met with an immediate backlash, as the city’s police department had already made public comments about the case, laying out what they said was the evidence that proved Smollett arranged the alleged attack.Shortly after the charges were dropped, the city sued the actor in an effort to recoup some of the tens of thousands of dollars they say the police department spent investigating the case.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Coronavirus live updates: US reports more than 48,000 new cases

first_imgnarvikk/iStockBy MORGAN WINSOR, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now killed more than 1.1 million people worldwide.Over 39.9 million people across the globe have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. The criteria for diagnosis — through clinical means or a lab test — has varied from country-to-country. Still, the actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some national governments are hiding or downplaying the scope of their outbreaks.Since the first cases were detected in China in December, the virus has rapidly spread to every continent except Antarctica.The United States is the worst-affected country, with more than 8.1 million diagnosed cases and at least 219,674 deaths.California has the most cases of any U.S. state, with more than 875,000 people diagnosed, according to Johns Hopkins data. California is followed by Texas and Florida, with over 854,000 cases and over 755,000 cases, respectively.More than 190 vaccine candidates for COVID-19 are being tracked by the World Health Organization, at least 10 of which are in crucial phase three studies. Of those 10 potential vaccines in late-stage trials, there are currently five that will be available in the United States if approved.Here’s how the news is developing Monday. All times Eastern:Oct 19, 8:28 amTop Palestinian official battling COVID-19 in ‘critical’ conditionSenior Palestinian official Saeb Erekat was placed in a medically-induced coma and is listed in critical condition at an Israeli hospital, where he’s being treated for COVID-19 complications.Erekat was transported by ambulance from his home in the Israeli-occupied West Bank to Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem on Sunday, more than a week after he had announced testing positive for COVID-19. The 65-year-old has a history of health problems and received a lung transplant in the United States in 2017.“Mr. Erekat had a quiet night but this morning his condition deteriorated, which is now defined as critical, and due to respiratory distress, he was resuscitated and placed under general anesthesia,” Hadar Elboim, a spokesperson for Hadassah Medical Center, told ABC News in a statement Monday.“Mr. Erekat poses a huge challenge to the treatment of corona as he is lung transplanted with suppression of the immune system, and with bacterial infection in addition to corona,” Elboim added. “Hadassah, with its most senior professional physicians, is in international medical contact regarding the policy of treating such a complex patient. Hadassah will continue to update his family as usual regarding his condition and will update the Palestinian Authority as he is a senior official there.”Erekat, who serves as the secretary-general of the Palestine Liberation Organization, is one of the most senior advisors to the Palestinian president. He is a longtime proponent of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.Oct 19, 8:02 amNew York Gov. Cuomo ‘not that confident’ in FDA’s vaccine approval processNew York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said he’s not confident in the Food and Drug Administration’s approval process for a COVID-19 vaccine, and that the American public shouldn’t be either.“I’m not that confident, but my opinion doesn’t matter. I don’t believe the American people are that confident,” Cuomo told ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos in an interview Monday on Good Morning America.“I think it’s going to be a very skeptical American public about taking the vaccine, and they should be,” he added.Cuomo said he plans to assemble a group of doctors and medical experts to review any COVID-19 vaccine approved by the FDA before affirming its efficacy and safety for New York state residents.“But I believe all across the country you’re going to need someone other than this FDA and this CDC saying it’s safe,” he said, before adding that the two federal agencies don’t “have any credibility.”The New York governor also expressed concern over comments Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, made during an interview that aired Sunday on CBS’ 60 Minutes, in which he admitted that the White House has restricted “many, many, many” of his media appearances since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.“You have Dr. Fauci now saying that they basically tried to muzzle him,” Cuomo said. “He has the highest credibility in the nation on this issue.”Oct 19, 7:19 amItaly imposes tighter restrictions as cases surgeFurther restrictions aimed at curbing the spread of COVID-19 came into effect in Italy on Monday, after a sharp rise in infections.Under the new measures, all bars, pubs and restaurants across the European country must close from midnight until 5 a.m., while gambling venues must close at 9 p.m. Restaurants are allowed to serve no more than six people per table and only after 6 p.m.Local festivals are now banned, and mayors can close streets and public squares after 9 p.m. to halt gatherings.Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte warned that gyms and swimming pools may also be shut down next week if they don’t follow the safety protocols.“These measures are aimed to avoid another lockdown,” Conte said Sunday while announcing the new rules. “The country cannot face another lockdown that would compromise the economic fabric of the country.”The move comes after Italy, once the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic, confirmed 11,705 new cases of COVID-19 over the weekend, an all-time high.Oct 19, 6:38 amRussia reports nearly 16,000 new cases in new record highRussia confirmed another 15,982 new cases of COVID-19 in the last 24 hours, its highest daily tally yet.An additional 179 deaths from COVID-19 were also registered in the past 24 hours, down from last week’s peak of 286. The cumulative totals now stand at 1,369,313 cases and 23,723 deaths, according to Russia’s coronavirus response headquarters.The country of 145 million people has the fourth-highest tally of COVID-19 cases in the world, behind only the United States, India and Brazil.More than 33% of the newly confirmed cases — 5,376 — and over 28% of the newly registered deaths — 51 — were reported in the capital, Moscow, according to country’s coronavirus response headquarters.Although Russia has been breaking its own records for daily case counts and deaths almost every day since Oct. 9, authorities there are resisting shutting down businesses again. Few measures have been imposed in Moscow, the epicenter of the country’s COVID-19 outbreak and recent surge.Oct 19, 6:19 amGlobal case count tops 40 millionMore than 40 million people around the world have been diagnosed with COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic, according to a real-time count kept by Johns Hopkins University.The global tally crossed the 40 million mark on Monday morning in yet another grim milestone of the pandemic.The United States has the highest number of diagnosed cases of any country, with more than 8.1 million, but is closely followed by India, which has over 7.5 million. Brazil, Russia and Argentina are also in the top five, according to Johns Hopkins data.Oct 19, 6:08 amTop Palestinian official taken to Israeli hospital for COVID-19Senior Palestinian official Saeb Erekat, who is battling COVID-19, was taken by ambulance to a hospital in Israel on Sunday, according to the Palestinian Liberation Organization.Erekat, who lives in the town of Jericho in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, disclosed earlier this month that he had contracted COVID-19. The 65-year-old has a history of health problems and received a lung transplant in the United States in 2017.“Following his contraction of COVID-19, and due to the chronic health problems he faces in the respiratory system, Dr. Erekat’s condition now requires medical attention in a hospital,” the Palestinian Liberation Organization said in a statement Sunday.Erekat’s brother told Agence France-Presse that “his situation is not good.”Erekat, who serves as the secretary-general of the Palestine Liberation Organization, is one of the most senior advisors to the Palestinian president. He is a longtime proponent of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, there have been more than 42,490 confirmed cases of COVID-19 with at least 381 deaths in the West Bank.Oct 19, 5:16 amNationwide mask mandate and other new restrictions take force in SwitzerlandA nationwide mask-wearing mandate and other new restrictions took force in Switzerland on Monday, amid a growing number of COVID-19 infections.People must now wear face masks in publicly accessible indoor spaces and at all public transport access points across the Central European country, including airports, bus and tram stops, railway stations, restaurants, shops and theaters. Masks have already been required on all public transport since July.Moreover, spontaneous gatherings of more than 15 people in public areas are no longer permitted. Masks are now required for all private events with more than 15 people. People may only consume food and drink while sitting down, and the contact details of all those taking part must be recorded.In addition, patrons in all restaurants and entertainment venues also may only consume food and drink while sitting.The federal government is again recommending people to work from home, as it did in March.The Swiss Federal Council announced the new measures on Sunday.Switzerland has confirmed more than 74,000 cases of COVID-19 and at least 1,823 deaths since the start of the pandemic, according to the latest data from the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health.Oct 19, 4:22 amUS reports more than 48,000 new casesThere were 48,210 new cases of COVID-19 identified in the United States on Sunday, according to a real-time count kept by Johns Hopkins University.The latest daily tally is down by nearly 10,000 from the previous day and also falls under the country’s record set on July 16, when there were 77,255 new cases in a 24-hour-reporting period.An additional 389 coronavirus-related fatalities were also recorded Sunday, almost half the previous day’s death toll and down from a peak of 2,666 new fatalities reported on April 17.A total of 8,154,935 people in the United States have been diagnosed with COVID-19 since the pandemic began, and at least 217,700 of them have died, according to Johns Hopkins. The cases include people from all 50 U.S. states, Washington, D.C. and other U.S. territories as well as repatriated citizens.By May 20, all U.S. states had begun lifting stay-at-home orders and other restrictions put in place to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus. The day-to-day increase in the country’s cases then hovered around 20,000 for a couple of weeks before shooting back up and crossing 70,000 for the first time in mid-July. The daily tally of new cases has gradually come down since then but has started to climb again in recent weeks.The number of new COVID-19 cases recorded in the United States continued to increase by double digits in week-over-week comparisons, while the number of new deaths from the disease ticked upward slightly, according to an internal memo from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that was obtained by ABC News on Friday night.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Daniel Deusser (GER) and Killer Queen VDM, owned by Stephex Stables, flew to the top spot in the $214,000 Marshall & Sterling/Great American Insurance Group Grand Prix CSI4* on the grass Derby Field at Equestrian Village on Sunday, February 7, to close out the Marshall & Sterling/Great American Insurance Group Grand Prix CSI4* week at the 2021 Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF).Coming up next week, it’s the first CSI5* of the season at the 2021 WEF, sponsored by Douglas Elliman Real Estate with a concurrent CSI2* running as well, sponsored by Restylane. The action begins on Wednesday, February 10, in the International Arena at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center (PBIEC), with the $37,000 Douglas Elliman Real Estate 1.45m Classic CSI5*, followed by Thursday’s $73,000 Adequan® WEF Challenge Cup Round 5.

Spectators can watch a live stream of feature classes, which are also available on-demand.The test set by Anderson Lima (BRA) featured 16 jumping efforts with a shortened jump-off course boasting seven obstacles and included an exciting gallop home to the Marshall & Sterling/Great American Insurance Group oxer. Eight nations were represented in the dozen qualified to return for the featured class jump-off.Deusser and Killer Queen VDM, an 11-year-old Belgian Warmblood mare by Eldorado Vd Zeshoek x Derly Chin De Muze, galloped swiftly across the track, leaving all the jumps in their cups. The pair stopped the clock in 39.98 seconds making them the only combination of the day to crack the 40-second mark.“I’m very happy with Killer Queen today,” said Deusser. “She arrived two weeks ago. I took her to other places to work with her on the grass, and she took it very well this weekend. At the end she is just an unbelievable horse. She has all of the things that a good show jumper needs; she’s very scopey, she’s careful, she has a huge stride, and she can be fast easily.”Ashlee Bond (ISR) and Donatello 141, a 10-year-old Westphalian gelding by Diarado x Lamoureux I owned by Little Valley Farms, gave it their best effort, flying over the final jump on course to finish in 40.41 seconds. Their impressive performance marks the first time the pair has competed in an FEI event since winning the CSI5* grand prix during WEF 9 at the 2020 WEF.“My plan was just to run, kick as hard as I could, and turn as fast as I could,” Bond said with a smile. “My horse is little. He’s like 15.3hh and doesn’t have a very big stride, but he is game, so I just took a chance and would have been happy wherever I ended up because he’s such a good boy.”“I think that Andersen [Lima] Is a genius course designer,” Bond continued. “Every horse that I watched this week, including my own, just got better as they went on. The courses are smart, they ask tough questions of the horses, but they’re not unfair. There are faults all over the course, and I really enjoy riding his tracks. It was a blast to be able to go up against riders like Daniel and McLain. There was so much talent out there.”Taking the final spot on the podium was the aforementioned McLain Ward (USA) aboard Contagious, a 12-year-old Rheinlander gelding by Contagio x For Mary owned by Beechwood Stables, LLC, crossing the finish line in 40.66 seconds.“I was thrilled with Contagious,” said the two-time Olympic team gold medalist. “We gave him a bit of a rest in the fall. We’ve been building him back up, and we’re thrilled with him. I thought he jumped really spectacular. I was a little chicken to the last fence in the jump-off, and I took away his wind a little bit. This year WEF is so competitive, and we’re seeing a level higher of competition than ever because we’re lucky enough to still be able to compete, so everyone has come to Florida. It’s exciting.”Horses and riders enjoyed their second opportunity to jump on the grass Derby Field and will have two more weeks of competition on the turf during WEF, which runs until April 4.“I think it’s great,” said Ward of the opportunity to spend more time on the Derby Field. “The footing is pretty spectacular, it’s a beautiful setting, and it’s nice to have a variety of places to jump to keep the horses interested, engaged, and fresh. I thought Anderson [Lima] did a great job today. The time allowed was probably a little bit friendly in the end and maybe opened the door for a few more into the jump-off.”Sunday’s win marks a welcome return for Deusser, the third-ranked rider in the world, who is competing at WEF for the first time in four years.“I have to admit that I missed it a little bit,” said Deusser. “Everything around this facility is fantastic. There are fantastic rings here and the circumstances around the world are difficult right now, so we are very happy to be here and that we can compete here.”After a successful Sunday, Deusser is already looking ahead, hungry to add to his collection of accolades.“I will continue with Killer Queen in the CSI5*, and after that she will have a couple weeks off and then I will work with some of my other horses during that time,” he said.Following the class, Deusser was also recognized with The Village of Wellington Cup, an award established in 1998 by the Village of Wellington that is presented annually by the Mayor of Wellington to the winning rider of the WEF 4 Grand Prix.Final Results: $214,000 Marshall & Sterling/Great American Insurance Group Grand Prix CSI4*1.
