• USDA Hikes US Corn and Soybean Production in November Report

    first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE Suderman said the corn and soybean carryover levels will now keep a lid on prices and make it hard for the market to rally, “We are going to need some kind of weather event to turn these markets, and that is a long way off.”  Suderman was surprised at the USDA cut in ethanol exports, but felt other demand projections were in line. By Gary Truitt – Nov 11, 2015 According to USDA in its November crop report, corn production is forecast at 13.7 billion bushels, up less than one percent from the October forecast, but down 4 percent from last year’s record production. That forecast is 99 million bushels higher with the national average yield raised 1.3 bushels per acre to 169.3 bushels, just 1.7 bushels below last year’s record. Projected domestic corn use for 2015-16 is lowered 50 million bushels as a 25-million-bushel increase in expected feed and residual use, with the larger crop and lower expected prices, is more than offset by a 75-million-bushel reduction in corn used to produce ethanol. The reduced outlook for corn use for ethanol is driven by significant adjustments to the 2015-16 sorghum balance sheet this month.WHEAT: Projected U.S. exports for 2015-16 are lowered 50 million bushels to 800 million, and ending stocks are raised by an equal amount to 911 million. Exports would be the lowest since 1971-72; ending stocks are the highest since 2009-10. Wheat exports are lowered on a very slow pace to date and continued lack of U.S. price competitiveness. The projected range for the 2015-16 U.S. season-average farm price is narrowed 5 cents on both the high and low ends to $4.80 to $5.20 per bushel. Global wheat supplies for 2015-16 are lowered 0.2 million tons on decreased beginning stocks partially offset by a small production increase.SORGHUM: U.S. sorghum exports for 2015/16 are projected 105 million bushels lower. Declining premiums for sorghum offered by exporters and large price discounts for sorghum relative to corn in interior cash markets drive expectations for higher use in ethanol production and higher feed and residual use.SOYBEANS: Soybean production is forecast at a record 3,981 million bushels, up 93.6 million on higher yields. The soybean yield is forecast at 48.3 bushels per acre, up 1.1 bushels mainly on gains for Iowa, Illinois, and Minnesota. Soybean supplies are projected up 2 percent from the October forecast. Soybean crush is raised 10 million bushels to 1,890 million on higher meal exports. Soybean exports are also raised with additional supplies. Ending stocks are raised 40 million bushels to 465 million. If realized, ending stocks would be the highest since 2006-07.Corn and soybean futures went into the report trading lower, near technical support levels. The bearish numbers in the report pushed prices through those levels. Arlan Suderman, with F.C. Stone, told HAT the market was expecting higher production, but the numbers came in larger than most market expectations, “It is unfortunate that this bearish news comes at a time when the market is already in a bearish frame of mind.” SHARE “With the corn harvest nearly complete, we see clearly the incredible abundance American farmers can produce, but we also realize that this excellence does not always bring an equivalent economic reward,” said National Corn Growers Association President Martin Barbre, a farmer from Carmi, IL. “While we have sustainably produced a crop that can feed and fuel our growing world, market forces are negatively impacting the price which we will be paid. It is of the utmost importance that, during times such as these, we rededicate ourselves to NCGA’s ongoing efforts to stimulate demand for our growing crop.” Facebook Twitter USDA Hikes US Corn and Soybean Production in November Report Home Indiana Agriculture News USDA Hikes US Corn and Soybean Production in November Report Previous articleIndiana Corn Growers Condemn Misleading Attack Ad on Renewable FuelsNext articleMorning Outlook Gary Truittlast_img read more

  • Solar eclipse to bring shadows, curiosity to campus

A decrease in temperature is also expected due to the shadow caused by the eclipse.Luckily the TCU’s College of Science & Engineering, Andrews Institute of Mathematics & Science Education, and Student Affairs will be hosting a viewing event in the campus commons from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. with games, snacks, and several safe ways to view the eclipse.Special viewing glasses will be distributed to everyone in attendance and five telescopes, each with a different filtered lens.Representatives from most colleges will be speaking at the event with booths available to provide information on how astronomy may relate to other fields of study.Kat Barger, an assistant professor of Physics and Astronomy, says the eclipse is more than an astronomical event, but a chance to find new interests.“Whenever you get introduced to science and you get to see how cool and neat it is, it can kind of give you the motivation to explore more that you want to know about the universe,” said Barger. “Look up and be curious.”If you can’t make it out to the commons to view the eclipse, NASA will be streaming live coverage of the event as it makes its way from coast to coast.

  • Newspaper editor pardoned and freed

    first_img Follow the news on Kazakhstan Reporters Without Borders hails newspaper editor Igor Vinyavsky’s release today under an amnesty granted after the European Parliament adopted a resolution criticizing Kazakhstan for detaining him. The editor of the independent daily Vzglyad, he had been held for more than two months (see below).“His release is a victory and we welcome it,” Reporters Without Borders said. “But we will continue to be vigilant. The regime is still harassing journalists employed by Vzglyad and other independent media, such as Stan TV.”Vinyavsky was arrested on 23 January for allegedly distributing leaflets calling for an insurrection a year ago, a charge he has always denied.—–05.03.2012 – Newspaper editor Igor Vinyavsky still in prisonIn a show of support for Igor Vinyavsky, the editor of the Kazakh independent daily Vzglyad, who has been held for more than a month, Reporters Without Borders is publishing an interview he gave on 1 July 2011 in which he condemned his newspaper’s persecution in the courts and the government’s constant efforts to restrict access to online resources.Reporters Without Borders firmly condemns Vinyavsky’s arbitrary arrest on 25 January and calls for his immediate release.Vinyavsky’s detention is one more example of the dramatic decline in media freedom in Kazakhstan, which was ranked 154th out of 179 countries in the latest Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. The threats to independent journalists are growing. Several have been summoned for questioning by the National Security Committee (KNB), which harasses them constantly. Adilet journalist Jarkinbek Seitinbet received a beating in Shimkent on 25 February. US journalist Nathanael Shenkkan of Eurasianet.org was questioned at a police station in Uralsk on 27 February.———-Igor Vinyavsky, editor of the Kazakh independent daily Vzglyad Vzglyad is an independent weekly with a print-run of about 16,000 copies that covers politics, education, health and other social issues. According to its editor, Igor Vinyavsky, who has been detained since 25 January, its mission is to report the news, provide government opponents with an outlet for their opinions, cover human rights violations, defend ordinary citizens and remind them of their rights. After this interview, the Court of Cassation ordered his newspaper to pay a large fine on 8 August.“Our newspaper is the victim of judicial persecution”Reporters Without Borders: Vzglyad has been the target of various lawsuits this year in connection with stories it published. It has already been closed once as a result of a prosecution. Tell us what has happened this year to Vzglyad.Igor Vinyavsky: I have had personal brushes with our country’s judicial system in the past. I have had to appear several times in court in connection with my journalistic activities. My newspaper Vesti Pavlodara (Pavlodar News) was closed in 2004 as a result of a court ruling in favour of the plaintiff, a parliamentarian. The newspaper’s assets were seized and auctioned off. The parliamentarian had the paper closed because of a critical article he regarded as defamatory.Now it is our daily Vzglyad that is the victim of judicial persecution. That is the only term I can use to describe what is happening to us. This has shocked public opinion in Kazakhstan. Now our newspaper is being sued by a surgeon called Keldybayev, who deceived a patient and did not carry out the operation he was supposed to perform. He put his patient’s life in danger by not telling him the truth. When the newspaper described this case, the surgeon sued us for 15 million tenge (72,000 euros) in damages. It turns out the surgeon’s brother is a judge and the court handed down a terrible ruling for us. For revealing the surgeon’s lies, the newspaper will have to pay a sum that will inevitably bankrupt it. Our last recourse is to appeal to the Court of Cassation. If the ruling is upheld, the newspaper will cease to publish. (The ruling was upheld on 8 August.)“The Kazakh judicial system is above all a tool for harassing independent news media”Reporters Without Borders: What role does the judicial system play in Kazakhstan and how do you regard it?Igor Vinyavsky: I think the Kazakh judicial system is above all a tool for harassing the regime’s opponents and independent news media. The judicial system answers to the president, who appoints judges. The judiciary automatically sides with the government. No more than 5 per cent of criminal convictions are justified. The courts take the prosecutor’s side. As a rule, the verdict handed down by a court is a copy of the prosecutor’s conclusions. The courts do not even try to be even-handed. Nowadays they are like the “troikas” (special courts) of the Stalin era. The only difference is that people are not shot. The mechanism is the same in every other respect. The defendant is quickly found guilty, without much discussion.“Journalists have been trained to understand what subjects not to broadcast or publish”Reporters Without Borders: How would you describe the state of media freedom in Kazakhstan?Igor Vinyavsky: The situation is clearly better than in Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan. Our country has at least begun a move towards democracy. But compared with eastern Europe, we are not just 20 years behind. It is more like 40. For the past 20 years they have progressed and we have gone backwards. We are now living in what is virtually a totalitarian regime. Censorship exists in the form of self-censorship. Journalists have been trained to understand what stories cannot be broadcast or published for political reasons. Journalists’ rights are very limited. Journalists are subject to constant psychological pressure and physical violence. Two weeks ago, the journalist Alexander Baranov was attacked in Pavlodar. I know him personally. He is a professional who fears nothing. He has risked his life several times for his work.Reporters Without Borders: Do the media laws help to defend the media? Are they moving in the right direction?Igor Vinyavsky: I can say with certainty that the media law has been modified no fewer than seven times since 1995. It has become more complex but no amendment or addition has represented a real move towards liberalization. The procedure for launching a newspaper is just as complicated as before. Because of their lowly status, journalists cannot attend major political events without previously requesting permission. If an official or organization violates a journalist’s rights, they are never held responsible.I can say that the law on the media does not defend the media. It imposes constraints on them. Reporters Without Borders: Has the situation of freedom of expression changed since the last presidential election?Igor Vinyavsky: I don’t think it has changed. It is as bad as ever, above all because of the lack of political evolution in Kazakhstan. Nothing changes from one year to the next. (…)“Our government constantly tries to limit the public’s access to various online resources”Reporters Without Borders: What can you tell us about the Internet? Does it constitute a space where people can express themselves freely in Kazakhstan?Igor Vinyavsky: To some extent, yes. But our government constantly tries to limit the public’s access to various online resources. Access to LiveJournal a very popular blog platform in Russian-speaking countries] was blocked in Kazakhstan for more than a year. We are now in the second year of the political news website Respublika being blocked by the Internet service provider Kazakhtelecom.The social network Facebook poses a serious problem for the government. According to some of our sources close to the president’s office, the authorities are currently looking at the possibility of blocking Facebook because it has become a signpost for the revolutionary movements in the Maghreb. The Nazarbayev administration seriously fears the influence of social networks on the Kazakh collective consciousness. Television is controlled by the government and just broadcasts positive comments about Nazarbayev and his regime. But on the Internet, you can find alternative viewpoints and you can express your opinion.What’s more, it is only on the Internet that Kazakhs have access to the (independent satellite) TV station K+. This popular TV station shows what is really happening in Central Asia and Kazakhstan. It is broadcast freely by satellite in Europe but the satellite broadcasts are blocked within Kazakhstan and the station’s website has been the target of DDoS attacks. So the only possibility left is to watch it on YouTube.Reporters Without Borders: Of late, you have been harassed by the authorities and your rights have been flouted. Can you give us some examples from your personal experience of this sort of harassment?Igor Vinyavsky: Just over a year ago, the special services tried to falsely incriminate me in a trumped-up criminal case but, thanks to information passed to us from well-intentioned persons within the security apparatus, we managed to expose this and thereafter the provocations stopped.Then, on 21 June, I was the victim of a new provocation. I was supposed to catch a flight in the morning for Amsterdam and then Brussels, where I was to participate in a conference organized by the European Parliament on corruption in Central Asian countries. But I was not allowed through immigration and, on the insistence of airport officials, KLM cancelled my ticket. I was told that this was because my visa, a D-category national visa, was not valid in the Schengen-area countries.But I know that I was acting within my rights. My visa allows me to spend 90 days in any Schengen-area country. I had already gone to Brussels on the same visa without any problem. So I have decided to file a complaint against KLM and the immigration service, which is affiliated to the KNB (National Security Committee).Reporters Without Borders: What are the prospects for your newspaper’s survival? What will you do if the lawsuit goes against you?Igor Vinyavsky: It is hard to talk about prospects in our country, where there is no fair justice and the laws are not implemented. If all the lawsuits go against us, we will publish online and we will create an Internet project with the existing staff. Or we will publish the newspaper under another name (as the opposition newspaper Respublika did, for example]. Our staff is fantastic!

Two men waiting outside his home shouted out his name and said: “Now you are going to write for Viktor Yanukovych.” They then beat him up and took his mobile phone.He managed to get inside his home before losing consciousness. He was hospitalized yesterday with cranial traumatism and many other injuries. An official investigation has been opened, but the police are not focusing on the political motives, Ukraina Tsentr editor Yuri Ilyuchek said.Rybchenkov has written many reports about electoral fraud in the Kirovograd area. In particular, he was very critical of the central electoral commission’s decision to annul the first-round results in a Kirovograd district where Yushchenko won.Along with his colleague Oksana Hutsalyuk and Ruslan Khudoyarov of the local news agency Komivoyager, Rybchenkov was previously attacked by thugs in the city’s central park a few days before the second round.Alexandre Danutsa, the news director of TV-Stymul and presenter of its news bulletin, was also violently attacked in Kirovograd on 18 November.

The application has followed the top Court’s last order whereby it had directed SBI Mutual Funds to undertake the distribution, dividing the amount amongst unit holders, in proportion to their respective interest in assets of scheme, as agreed by both Franklin Templeton Trust and SEBI. A division Bench of Justices Abdul Nazeer and Sanjeev Khanna issued the directions while hearing the plea by Franklin Templeton challenging a Karnataka High Court’s order which restrained winding up of six of its debt schemes without obtaining the consent of its investors by a simple majority. The Court has also approved the application for impleadment filed by SBI Mutual Funds and SBI Funds Management Pvt Ltd. The matter has been posted on 17th February 2021 for final arguments. The present application submitted that SBI Funds Management Pvt Ltd has been been appointed as Asset Management Company of SBI Mutual Fund, and SBI MF being a Trust, all its operations are being carried out by SBI Funds Management Pvt Ltd. “Accordingly, SBI Funds Management Pvt Ltd would take all steps to endeavour to distribute the amount of Rs 9122 Crore to the unit holders of the six mutual fund schemes of Franklin Templeton Mutual Fund in compliance with the order dated 02.02.2021 passed by this Hon’ble Court. SBI Mutual Fund and SBI Funds Management Pvt Ltd shall collectively be referred to as SBIMF in short” – the application read. Following the application, the Court has approved that SBI Mutual Funds be replaced with SBI Funds Management Pvt Ltd. in its last order 2nd February 2021. The Apex Court in its last hearing had directed that amount of 9122 crores that is cash ready with Franklin Templeton as on 15th January 2021 be distributed amongst the unit holders under the six mutual fund schemes. The Court was examining objections to the e-voting results to decide if disbursal or payment to the unit holders should be made. The Court had asked the Franklin Templeton Trust services and the asset management company to cooperate with SBI Mutual Funds in this regard and furnish to them entire data and details. The Bench had further directed the process to preferably be completed in period of 20 days from date of this order and has given liberty to the parties to can move an application and approach the Court in case of any difficulty in the process. In December 2020, the Supreme Court had allowed Franklin Templeton Trustees to call for a meeting of unit holders to seek their consent/approval. The top court had hauled up SEBI adding that it had a lot to answer for and why did it not intervene when unit holders started seeking redemption, much like how RBI intervened in cases of banks, to protect depositors. Franklin had stated that in May 2020, the trustees had sought a vote by unit investors for validly undertaking an orderly sale of the debt securities held in the funds and return money to Unit investors. However, the process could not be completed. It had stated that after judgement of High Court of Karnataka, it considered all possible options to start returning money to unit holders in the shortest possible time in an orderly manner. This included the option of seeking unit holder consent according to the judgment of the High Court. However, after detailed deliberations, it determined that it will be necessary to seek judicial intervention from the Supreme Court to ensure an appropriate implementation of the law in the best interest of unit holders. This action took some time because these steps needed to be carefully and thoughtfully taken to ensure that it can return unit holder monies at the earliest in an equitable manner, without distress sale of securities (at steep discounts) that would occur if there is a rush of redemptions. The Karnataka High Court had heard the petitions challenging the winding up of six debt fund schemes of the Fund House.While the court had refused to interfere with the decision of winding up the schemes, it had said that FT has to take the consent of the unit holders before taking further steps on the basis of the decision. “The decision of the trustees to wind up the six schemes is not interfered by the court subject to it obtaining consent from the unit holders”, the court had stated in the order. Franklin Templeton had in April announced its decision to wind up six debt funds citing low liquidity. Nearly three lakh investors are estimated to be affected by this decision. It was after this decision that some investors moved various High Courts. Petitions across High courts were clubbed by the Supreme Court vide an order dated June 24 in the transfer petition filed by Franklin Templeton seeking consolidation of various petitions filed with respect to the winding up of debt fundsNext Storylast_img read more

  • Recruitment of Antarctic krill Euphausia superba inthe South Georgia region: adult fecundity and thefate of larvae

    first_imgThe high concentration of adult Antarctic krill Euphausia superba Dana around SouthGeorgia, Antarctica, is a product of immigration and not local recruitment. We investigated whetherreproduction and early larval development are the cause of local recruitment failure. It was foundthat the majority of adult females were reproductively active in summer and that there was a comparativelyhigh investment in the ovary, reaching up to 46% of the total wet weight of the krill. The correspondingegg batches were amongst the largest ever reported for E. superba. A semi-empiricalmodel predicted that 11% of females completed just 1 spawning episode per year, 60% completed 2,and 29% completed 3 or more. On average, a South Georgian krill released 12 343 eggs yr–1. Theeggs were unable to complete the descent–ascent developmental cycle on-shelf because the bathymetrywas too shallow but, off-shelf, they were predicted to sink to between 490 and 520 m andreturn to the surface either as a metanauplius or 1st calyptopis stage with plenty of energy reservesremaining. Feeding conditions were adequate for the development of later larval stages once thesereserves were exhausted. Although net surveys found calyptopis and early stage furcilia in the vicinityof South Georgia, numbers were mostly lower than predicted. Overall, reproduction or early stagedevelopment are successful in this region, leaving predation on larvae and advective export duringwinter as the main potential causes of local recruitment failure.last_img read more

  • Fired Maryland football coach D.J. Durkin offering input to Alabama coaching staff

    first_imgDecember 14, 2018 /Sports News – National Fired Maryland football coach D.J. Durkin offering input to Alabama coaching staff Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmail33ft/iStock(TUSCALOOSA, Ala.) — Former University of Maryland football coach D.J. Durkin has been working with the University of Alabama coaching staff this week, ahead of the Crimson Tide’s College Football Playoff game.Durkin was fired by the University of Maryland in October after two investigations into the program — focusing on the death of offensive lineman Jordan McNair and the culture Durkin had created. Alabama head coach Nick Saban has invited a number of former head coaches to spend time with the Alabama staff in recent years, including Hugh Freeze, Chip Kelly, Lane Kiffin, Butch Jones, Steve Sarkisian and Rich Rodriguez. Freeze, Kelly and Kiffin all eventually received head coaching jobs elsewhere after working with Alabama, while Jones, Kiffin and Sarkisian each ended up on the Alabama coaching staff.Sources told ESPN that Durkin has not been hired in any capacity, and was solely offering input ahead of Alabama’s game against Oklahoma on December 29. ESPN also says Durkin has met with multiple NFL teams since his firing to “watch tape and offer input.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.center_img Beau Lundlast_img read more
