Houston solidarity with Syrian refugees

first_imgHundreds of people in Houston came out on Sept. 12 to welcome Syrian refugees arriving in the city. The large, spirited and militant demonstration, organized by Arab youth and Latino/a immigrant organizations, drew a huge crowd, including the Free Radicals marching band. From union activists, including steelworkers who recently returned to work after being on strike for months, to the New Black Panther Party to Proyecto Latino Americano, all united in the chant, “From Syria to Mexico, border walls have got to go!”A leader of the campaign to find the missing Ayotzinapa students in Mexico told Workers World, “No one wants to leave their homes, but war and violence sometimes force us to do just that.” The demonstration was at Houston’s busiest intersection in the most crowded shopping area and the response from passersby was positive. Signs and chants were in English, Arabic and Spanish. News coverage was broad on both English- and Spanish-language television.One man who was interviewed, Israel “Izzy” Torres, had been fighting his own deportation for almost two years. Just a few days after he attended this demonstration and appeared on television, Immigration and Customs Enforcement did deport him to Mexico, where he knows no one. He and his partner have lived in Houston for over 20 years and all their children are U.S. citizens.The theme of the Sept. 12 action was “Refugees welcome! No human is illegal!” The demands were for the European Union member states to end immediately their dehumanizing and repressive practices and allow free access and movement of refugees and migrants to reach the destination of their choosing, without fear of coast guard patrols, borders, fences or cages. Also, for Washington to do its part in welcoming and resettling refugees in the U.S., and for the Obama administration to pledge to accept at least 65,000 refugees from Syria for resettlement in the U.S. by 2016.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Indiana Ag Sectors Look Good in New Study

first_img Facebook Twitter Indiana Ag Sectors Look Good in New Study By Andy Eubank – May 16, 2013 Home News Feed Indiana Ag Sectors Look Good in New Study SHARE Previous articleDuPont Pioneer Indiana Field Update with Stephanie Smith,Next articleSeed Consultants 5/17/2013 Market Update with Gary Wilhelmi Andy Eubank New Ag impact studyA new report from the Indiana University Kelley School of Business says agricultural industries contributed to Indiana’s economy in 2011 in a big way. The economic total is $37.9 billion and the job total is 190,000. The study was funded by Indiana’s soybean farmers through the Indiana Soybean Alliance.Roz Leeck, the Director of Grain Marketing and Biofuels at ISA explained why Indiana farmers made the investment.“We know that agriculture contributes mightily to the Indiana economy and we wanted to put some of those numbers down on paper in a more complete format. We had worked with Indiana Business Research Center on some projects in the past and had an opportunity to work with them again on putting this report together. We’re pretty pleased with the results of it and certainly it does demonstrate the value of agriculture to Indiana’s economy.”Chickens, eggs, milk, hardwoods, hogs and cattle all factor into Indiana agriculture, but “Certainly when you look at the numbers what jumps out right away is grain farming and oil seed farming, soy largely corn and soybean farming are where some of the most significant impacts are happening. Some of the most significant jobs are also tied to those and it just continues to drive back the importance of agriculture and farming and agricultural processing, not just to the overall state economy but certainly to the local economies. I think that we all know that and we all see it but until you start putting actual figures to it you don’t really understand the true impact.”The impact extends to state and local governments which benefit from almost a billion dollars in tax revenue, and agriculture and forestry in Indiana contributes $1.5 billion to the federal treasury.The report concludes that “the value of Indiana’s agricultural production has grown over the past decade and should continue to do so in coming years.”Visit www.indianasoybean.com for more and view the report, “Agriculture’s Bounty: The Economic Contribution of Agriculture,” produced by the Indiana Business Research Center here.Release from the IU Newsroom:BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Agricultural industries contributed $37.9 billion to Indiana’s economy in 2011, according to a new report from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business.“Agriculture’s Bounty: The Economic Contribution of Agriculture,” produced by the Indiana Business Research Center, also said that the state’s agricultural output supports nearly 190,000 Hoosier jobs. Of those jobs, 103,000 are directly involved in crop production and processing.“It is understandable why Indiana’s agricultural industries have been encouraged to expand in the past decade,” said co-author Tanya Hall, an economic research analyst at the IBRC. “The pastoral scenes along Indiana highways are more than just fields of corn and soybeans or barns of hogs and chickens. Those scenes represent the livelihoods of some 190,000 Hoosiers.”Approximately 83 percent of Indiana’s geography — 19.4 million acres — is devoted to farming or forests.Agricultural activities alone, such as the production of crops or livestock and the manufacturing of processed goods, accounted for $25.4 billion in economic output. Ripple effects accounted for another $12.5 billion as it included the purchase of supplies from Indiana-based companies ($7.6 billion) and paychecks linked to households of agriculture-related employees ($4.9 billion).“From creating jobs to contributing to the state’s GDP, agriculture is an important industry in our state,” said Jane Ade Stevens, chief executive officer of the Indiana Soybean Alliance, which provided funding for the study. “This study helps draw attention to how big of an impact agriculture has on our economy.”The commodity with the greatest amount of output was eggs — about 6.5 billion were produced in 2011 — followed by 3.5 billion pounds of milk, or 353.9 million gallons.However, the commodities with the highest total production value were grains such as non-silage corn, oats and wheat, with a total value of $13.9 billion; and soybeans (also known as oilseeds), valued at $2.8 billion.Farming of these crops accounted for more than half of all workers in Indiana agriculture — more than 54,000 jobs — and ripple effects supported another 29,800 jobs around the state. Hog and other animal production had the next largest total employment impact with 16,930 jobs.“Grain production also dominated agriculture’s contribution to Indiana GDP,” Hall said. “The combined effects of grain production totaled an estimated $3.2 billion in value added, which accounted for one-quarter of the agricultural total and represented 1.2 percent of Indiana GDP. Soybean production was the second highest in value added, totaling $2.1 billion.”Indiana is known for quality hardwoods, and sawmills and furniture production establishments employ more than 35,500 workers. According to Indiana Department of Natural Resources statistics cited in the report, nearly 88 percent of logs processed in Indiana in 2010 came from within the state.“Despite increasing population and development, the quantity of forest land has increased over the years, allowing Indiana to continue its timber harvesting without sacrificing forest land growth,” said Hall, who also is a family farmer.The report also highlights how the state’s agriculture and forestry industries provide revenue for federal, state and local governments in the form of corporate profits, indirect business taxes, personal taxes and contributions to social insurance.The economic activity related to Indiana agriculture and forestry created about $970 million in state and local revenue and nearly $1.5 billion in federal collections.A key conclusion of the report is that the value of Indiana’s agricultural production has grown over the past decade and should continue to do so in coming years.“This has been caused by increased domestic and worldwide demand for agricultural products and byproducts, leading to sustained high prices,” Hall said. “Attempts to increase output, however, have often been hampered by the weather (for crops), high input prices (for livestock), soft demand or increased competition (for furniture).“As the world’s population grows and fortunes of developing countries improve, there will be still greater pressure to increase production, even as resources and territory become scarcer.” SHARE Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Pork Producers Will Profit Despite PED Virus

first_imgThe USDA announced on Friday that reporting of PEDv is now required.  In addition to requiring reporting of the PED virus, today’s announcement will also require tracking movements of pigs, vehicles, and other equipment leaving affected premises; however, movements would still be allowed. Neil Dierks, with the National Pork Producer Council, says the USDA decision not to restrict movement of hogs is the correct decision, “NPPC agrees with USDA’s decision not to restrict the movement of pigs, and it urges the agency to take practical approaches – ones that are workable for pork producers – to other related requirements it may impose.” He added that NPPC will provide input to USDA as it further develops responses to these devastating diseases. Dr. Paul Sunberg with the National Pork Board told HAT PEDv is a production issue not a public health or food safety issue. One top pork economist suggests that pork producer profits will actually increase as a result of PEDv. Pork Producers Will Profit Despite PED Virus Home Indiana Agriculture News Pork Producers Will Profit Despite PED Virus Facebook Twitter Meyer said the reduction of the hog supply due to PEDv may hurt consumers more than producers, “Pork producer revenues will hit record highs in 2014 while consumers will pay the price of PEDv with higher retail pork prices.” In addition, prices of beef and poultry will also be higher in 2014.  According to Meyer, this is an example of why animal health is such an important issue for the industry and for public policy in general.  While PEDv poses no threat to human health of food safety, it will have an impact on the price of meat for the rest of the year.  Pork Producers Will Profit Despite PED Virus Previous articleUSDA Mandates PEDv ReportingNext articleFood vs. Fuel Debate Still Alive and Well Gary Truittcenter_img Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Apr 20, 2014 Steve Meyer, of Paragon Economics. says it is ironic that, while the disease is devastating pork production, pork profits are going up, “This is an inelastic demand. That means when you take cut pork production by 1% the price of pork goes up by more than 1%.  Since revenue is price times quantity, you can see that total revenue goes up when you cut production in this way.” He added that even for the individual producer, higher prices will offset losses caused by PEDv.

Man and Woman File $10 Million Claims Against Pasadena Police Alleging Trespassing, 4th Amendment Violation

first_imgPublic Safety Man and Woman File $10 Million Claims Against Pasadena Police Alleging Trespassing, 4th Amendment Violation By BRIAN DAY Published on Monday, June 29, 2020 | 7:41 pm Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * [Updated]  A man and woman have filed claims against the Pasadena Police Department and four officers alleging they trespassed and violated the couple’s privacy when they searched a Pasadena apartment after responding to a call regarding a possibly suicidal person last year.The claims, which are the precursor to a lawsuit, stem from an incident that took place on July 22 in the 600 block of South Lake Avenue. The Pasadena city council received and filed the claims during their June 22 meeting, records show.“The city of Pasadena and their employees were negligent, trespassed, caused an invasion of privacy, caused a trespass to chattels and conversion and violated the Bane Act,” both claims state. The Bane Act forbids the violation of another person’s Constitutional rights.Claimants Keith Anderson and Lorena McCaigue are seeking $10 million in damages a piece in their filings.The department holds that the officers acted appropriately.“Officers from the Pasadena Police Department responded to the report of a person threatening suicide and took action necessary to protect life,” Lt. William Grisafe said.“The information that was being provided to our Dispatch Center as well as the officers seemed legitimate and the officers’ response was in-line with similar calls, including looking for contact information and checking all possible residence rooms (including the underground parking garage) where a person may be found,” the lieutenant said. “As the investigation progressed, it appeared as if the call was a ‘spoof’ call for service, deliberately meant to mislead police. Whatever the motive was of the caller, it is disturbing someone would intentionally misdirect police resources for such a serious, but phony call.”But Anderson and McCaigue describe a different version of events in the claims, filed on their behalf by the Law Offices of Kevin S. Conologue in Beverly Hills. The claims allege officers repeatedly searched drawers and rifled through documents and other personal items without a valid reason to do so.Police received a call from a person who identified himself as Jose Santerio. According to a police report on the incident, the man stated he had just lost $26,000 in a scam and wanted to kill himself by hanging.Four officers ultimately responded, identified in the claims as Officer Alex Torres, Officer Brian Petrella, Officer Cibulski, whose first name was not listed, and Sgt. Ara Bzdigian.“At no time during this call were threats made to, or against, others, nor did the individual state they had any weapons,” according to the claim.The claimants allege that after officers determined there was no emergency, they continued searching drawers and other storage areas, which was captured on home surveillance camera footage.At one point, an officer read personal information from a document at the home to dispatch over the radio, the claims state. A short time later, dispatch informed officers that one of the residents of the apartment was a law enforcement officer. It was not clear who was involved in law enforcement, or what agency they belonged to.The Pasadena officers continued to search some more before ultimately leaving, according to the claims.It’s further alleged that Bzdigian and Petrella “appear to manipulate their Body Worn Cameras.”Police ultimately determined the original call of a suicidal person had been a hoax, according to the police report, which listed the case as an incident of making a false police report.In addition to monetary damages, the claims ask that the matter be referred to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office Justice System Integrity Division for investigation.

They claim to be residing together in a live-in relationship and claim protection of their life and liberty from the relatives of petitioner no.1 (Girl).” Also Read – Karnataka High Court Issues Notice On Plea Seeking GST, Royalty Exemptions For COVID VaccinesAdvertisement Further, the Court opined,”If such protection as claimed is granted, the entire social fabric of the society would get disturbed. Hence, no ground to grant the protection is made out.”In related news, in a protection plea filed by an interfaith couple, the Punjab and Haryana High Court recently observed that the marriage between a Muslim woman and a Hindu man won’t be valid as the bride didn’t convert to Hindu religion before the solemnization of marriage in accordance with Hindu rites and ceremonies.

Merely because of the fact that petitioner No.2 is not of a marriageable age the petitioners cannot possibly be denied enforcement of their fundamental rights as envisaged under Article 21 of the Constitution of India.”Significantly, the Punjab and Haryana High Court last year remarked that a court hearing a Protection Petition filed by runaway couples need not preach on morality or human behavior.A bench of Justice Rajiv Narayan Raina had made it clear that in such cases, the court should not present its personal views regarding morality, and must ensure that the couple’s rights under Article 21 are protected.”It is not for this Court in a protection petition to engage itself in social mores, norms and human behaviour or introduce personal ideas on morality.”Even in January 2020, the Punjab and Haryana High Court observed that parents cannot compel a child to live a life on their terms. The Bench of Justice Alka Sarin had further reiterated that merely because the boy is not of marriageable age (though major) the right of petitioners to live together cannot be denied.Further, noting that “Parents cannot compel a child to live a life on their terms and that every adult individual has a right to live his or her life as he or she deems fit”, the High Court upheld a couple’s right to be in a live-in relationship.

People skills the only way to keep talent

first_img Previous Article Next Article People skills the only way to keep talentOn 21 May 2002 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. HR has to train line managers in people management skills if firms want toretain their best employees, claimed Cary Cooper, professor of organisationalpsychology and health at UMIST. Bad management is a key reason for sickness absence and a lack of job satisfactionamong staff, delegates heard. “The relationship that employees have with their boss is fundamental totheir well-being. But bosses manage with punishment and not reward and praisebecause they do not know how to,” Cooper said. “The relationship and management style of the boss is critical to jobsatisfaction. Bosses should balance effective punishment and reward like aparent would do to a child – but they do not.” Cooper urged delegates to change the work culture in the UK and embracework-life balance and family friendly policies to improve job satisfaction. Despite many companies having work-life balance policies, British staffstill work the longest hours in the whole of Europe. Cooper blamed low take up of these schemes and said it was mainly women thatopted for a work-life balance because doing this was seen by men as a”wimp’s” option. This is despite all levels of staff admitting thatworking long hours was destroying their home life, he said. Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more

Younger people, aged 18-to-25 years old, are most likely to be looking fornew employment opportunities, with 23 per cent of respondents activelyjob-seeking, compared to 21 per cent of those aged 25 to 34. James Reed, chief executive at Reed, said: “As talent becomesincreasingly mobile, the individuals in most demand can pick and choose whatthey do, and move at will. Organisations need to ensure they have ahighly-developed and articulated sense of what makes them attractive to peoplein order to retain their best staff.” Reed said the internet has made it easier for people to stay in touch withthe job market than ever before, with half of those surveyed using the web whenresearching jobs. Interest in the job market only drops below half of the workforce oncepeople reach the age of 45. In the 45 to 54 age group, 44 per cent say theystay aware of new opportunities. This drops to 17 per cent among those aged 55 to 64.
