The decision has drawn sharp criticism as an extraordinary act of retribution. But what is the practical impact? And what can Brennan do about it?Currently, the White House is reviewing security clearances for at least nine former officials in addition to Brennan.

ASA Urges Emergency Financial Aid to Assist Farmers with Devastating Losses

0 Comment

first_imgThe American Soybean Association (ASA) is urging Congress to provide funding to deliver much-needed financial assistance to farmers and rural communities to assist them in recovering from devastating losses caused by hurricanes, excessive rain during harvest and other natural disasters across the country, including catastrophic weather-related losses in the mid-South and neighboring states.”Soybeans, rice, cotton, peanuts, sweet potatoes and other crops and segments of the agricultural economy currently are experiencing devastating weather-related losses,” said ASA President Johnny Dodson, a soybean producer from Halls, Tenn. “In some cases, the 2009 losses follow on the heels of similar losses in 2008.”To make the situation even worse, the rains in the Mid-South came during harvest so farmers had invested the maximum in inputs to bring the crops to completion only to suffer yield and quality losses, in addition to increased harvest expenses, which has resulted in severe financial stress. Processors and related businesses that rely upon robust production will operate at reduced levels or not at all, placing stress on small businesses and rural communities.”Because there is urgent need for disaster assistance, ASA believes the provisions in the legislation recently introduced by Senators Cochran, Lincoln and Wicker can effectively deliver emergency financial disaster assistance for most crops through a mechanism similar to Direct Payments,” Dodson said. “The payments would be limited to counties with a Secretarial disaster declaration. This delivery mechanism offers the advantage of delivering timely assistance for yield and quality losses with minimal administrative burden on USDA. Alternative means of providing assistance to specialty crops and other sectors will also be necessary.”ASA joined with the National Cotton Council, Southern Peanut Farmers Federation, USA Rice Federation and the U.S. Rice Producers Association in sending a letter to Senator Thad Cochran (R-MS) on Nov. 20, expressing strong support and the urgent need for legislation.Although loss estimates are preliminary, they have already reached the hundreds of millions of dollars. Many producers need assistance within weeks to repay loans and secure new financing in time for spring planting, so prompt action on this measure is vitally important. Alternative means of providing assistance cannot be delivered before late 2010 or early 2011.last_img read more

ASA Lists Benchmarks in Comments on NAFTA Renegotiation

0 Comment

first_imgIn comments submitted to the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) today, the American Soybean Association (ASA) underscored the importance of maintaining and building on the extensive agricultural trade relationships have developed between the United States and Canada and Mexico through the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). ASA’s comments came following announcement by President Donald Trump last month that the U.S. would move to renegotiate the 24-year-old pact.ASA included in its comments a list of benchmarks that reflect the gains already achieved in increasing U.S. agricultural exports to its NAFTA trading partners, and called on USTR to preserve if not exceed them in the renegotiation. These include maintaining a comprehensive, rules-based approach, and ensuring no backsliding by any party on agriculture or non-agriculture market access commitments.With regard to biotechnology, ASA urged USTR to pursue stronger language on sanitary and phytosanitary standards (SPS) geared toward enhancing cooperation between regulatory agencies and avoiding trade disruptions related to agricultural production technologies. ASA included suggestions to adopt trade-facilitative residue levels and adventitious presence mechanisms, and to establish in the renegotiation a long-term and formal low-level presence policy (LLP) for biotech trait shipments between the three countries. Looking to support the animal agriculture sector that represents the largest buyer of U.S. soybean meal, ASA included benchmarks to maintain the successful elements of the agreement with regard to dairy entry into Mexico, while targeting greater market access for poultry, egg, and dairy product exports into Canada.Beyond its specific recommendations, ASA cited the dramatic growth of the Canadian and Mexican markets for U.S. soybeans, and for American agricultural products overall, since the implementation of NAFTA in 1993. In 2015, the U.S. exported $438 million in soy products to Canada, a 220 percent increase from the $199 million sold in 1987. Soy exports to Mexico in 2015 totaled $2.44 billion, nearly 500 percent greater than the $489 million sold in 1993.A full copy of ASA’s comments is available here.last_img read more

Stevenson man missing in Columbia River

first_imgA 26-year-old Stevenson man was missing and presumed drowned Friday night in the Columbia River. More searching for him is planned this morning using a boat with side-scanning sonar, police said.Rescuers were called to the Stevenson boat launch about 4:30 p.m. Friday, according to a bulletin from Undersheriff Dave Cox with the Skamania County Sheriff’s Office.Witnesses said the man had been on a small raft just south of the docks when it capsized. He tried to swim to shore, but the current carried him a short distance downstream and he went under.The man, who had not been wearing a flotation vest, wasn’t seen again, the bulletin said.The sheriff’s Marine Unit and Dive Team searched in the river’s strong current for more than two hours but didn’t find the man.His name wasn’t immediately released pending notification of family members, Cox said.Officials contacted the Oregon State Patrol, which plans to bring its Marine Unit, with side-scanning sonar, to the windsurfing area just south of the Stevenson boat launch. Beginning about 7:30 a.m. today, the boat crew will help divers with the search.last_img read more

Probst Candidate Peck is lying in TV ad

0 Comment

first_imgState Rep. Deb Wallace, D-Vancouver, will serve as a state legislator until the end of her term in January, when she will officially retire. A Tuesday story misstated her status.Despite clear evidence to the contrary, Republican legislative candidate Brian Peck launched a $40,000 cable TV ad campaign Monday that accuses state Rep Tim Probst, his Democratic opponent, of voting “for the largest budget in state history, paid for with higher taxes.”Probst, the director of a statewide work-force training organization, is running for a second term representing the 17th Legislative District. He was one of a handful of Democrats to vote against the 2010-11 supplemental budget, which imposed new taxes on soda, bottled water, candy and other items.He has a 100 percent record of voting against state taxes, and the Evergreen Freedom Foundation, a conservative budget watchdog organization, has ranked him the No. 1 lawmaker in the Legislature for opposing new taxes two years in a row. He has been endorsed by the Association of Washington Business, among other fiscally conservative groups. “Brian is lying directly to the voters,” Probst said Monday after reviewing the ad on a conservative website. “He knows he’s lying directly to the voters and it’s insulting to the voters.”last_img read more

Ore terror suspect pleads not guilty

0 Comment

first_imgPORTLAND (AP) — The Somali-born man accused in a car bomb plot at a crowded Christmas tree lighting pleaded not guilty Monday as his lawyer suggested that government agents had groomed the teenager and timed his arrest for publicity.Mohamed Osman Mohamud spoke little during the 15-minute hearing, only answering, “Yes, your honor,” when asked by the judge if he understood his rights. He wore a pale blue shirt and dark pants, and was shackled at the legs.Judge John Acosta said Mohamud would remain in custody, and the judge set a tentative trial date for February.Meanwhile, Mohamud’s lawyer, public defender Stephen Sady, hinted that he would explore a defense based on entrapment. He focused on the FBI’s failed attempt to record a first conversation between Mohamud and an FBI undercover operative that resulted in a months-long sting operation and Mohamud’s arrest on Friday.An FBI affidavit said that Mohamud talked of “putting stuff in a car, parking it by a target, and detonating it” at the July 30 meeting at a downtown Portland hotel. It also said that the undercover agent was equipped with audio recording equipment but it didn’t work, for reasons the affidavit left unexplained.“In the cases involving potential entrapment, it’s the initial meeting that matters,” said Sady.The judge granted a defense request to order the government to preserve whatever devices, storage media or locations might have been used for the meeting.last_img read more

Snow arrives in downtown Vancouver

first_imgConcerned about your commute? If the snow falls and sticks around, causing Wednesday-morning headaches around the county, we’ll host a Web chat with Columbian weather blogger Steve Pierce and offer live coverage beginning about 6 a.m. and continuing throughout the day. If the snow falls, join the conversation at The Columbian.A shot of wintry weather arrived in Clark County late Tuesday, prompting a series of warnings ahead of what could be messy morning travel conditions at high elevations.At 10 p.m. Tuesday, snow was falling and sticking in downtown Vancouver. The National Weather Service then revised its forecast, calling for 1 to 4 inches in Vancouver. A forecaster said the temperature was near freezing, paving the way for snow.Higher elevations could get significant accumulations as moisture collides with a cold air mass over the region.In Clark County, C-Tran planned to have field supervisors out checking road conditions as early as 2 or 3 a.m., said public affairs director Scott Patterson. Officials will then decide how to alter routes or equip the bus fleet. That’s the agency’s normal protocol when there’s a threat of snowy weather, he said.“Everybody kind of knows what their responsibilities are,” Patterson said. “We tend to play it pretty cautious.”The Washington State Department of Transportation issued a statement of its own Tuesday, urging drivers to use caution and plan for hazardous conditions. Several inches of snow were expected to fall in the Seattle area.last_img read more

Six Mariners pitchers combine on nohitter

0 Comment

first_imgSEATTLE — Kevin Millwood and five relievers combined on the third no-hitter in Seattle Mariners history, a 1-0 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night.The no-hitter was the fourth in the majors this season, joining gems pitched by the Angels’ Jered Weaver, the Mets’ Johan Santana and White Sox right-hander Philip Humber, who threw a perfect game at Seattle in April.But this one was the least conventional, tying the record for most pitchers in a no-hitter.“That was unbelievable. I’ve never been a part of anything like that with that many guys coming in and keeping the no-hitter intact,” said Kyle Seager, who drove in Ichiro Suzuki with a two-out single in the seventh.Millwood cruised through six innings, giving up only a walk. But after throwing his first warmup pitch for the seventh he felt a twinge in his groin and was pulled. Seattle’s bullpen finished the no-hitter when Tom Wilhelmsen retired Andre Ethier on a routine grounder to second base that ended a 1-2-3 ninth inning.The Dodgers nearly got a hit when speedy Dee Gordon led off the ninth with a slow roller to shortstop. Brendan Ryan, who had just entered as a defensive replacement, charged in and fired to first, where umpire Ted Barrett called Gordon out on a bang-bang play.last_img read more

Clark County commissioners clash on waivers

0 Comment

first_imgA Clark County program that waives development fees on nonhousing projects could be expanded to businesses that are not compliant with permitting regulations, despite vocal objections of one county commissioner.At the direction of Republican Commissioners David Madore and Tom Mielke, the county’s Community Development Department will investigate what actions could be taken to extend the fee cuts to businesses that never received permits from the county in the first place. The commissioners say such an amnesty initiative would encourage so-called “bad actors” to comply with county regulations.“It may be a really good idea for us to send a message out there that whoever is operating businesses that have not gotten their permits, ‘Come on in. Welcome to Clark County. We’re business-friendly now. You win, because you’re a legitimate business now,’” Madore said.Throwing his support behind the idea, Mielke said the county could benefit from bringing businesses into compliance because it would save the county from sending code enforcement officers to noncompliant businesses.But Commissioner Steve Stuart, a Democrat, who has opposed the fee waivers from day one, called the idea “corporate welfare,” leaving taxpayers to foot the bill from lost fees.last_img read more

Memories of the moon landing

The 45th anniversary of the first lunar landing was celebrated a couple of weeks ago.As a quality-control engineer, Atkinson made sure the lunar module could handle the trip, and he was the last person in it who wasn’t an astronaut.When archive film of Armstrong and Aldrin on the moon was shown recently, Atkinson didn’t just recognize a milestone in American history. He saw a couple of moon-suited guys he knew.“Armstrong was kind of a practical joker, in a way. With Buzz, you had short conversations, because the second verse was over your head,” he said.After one pre-launch trouble-shooting session, Atkinson admitted, he tried to walk away with Armstrong’s watch.Almost five decades ago, Atkinson was part of the Apollo 9, Apollo 10 and Apollo 11 missions. Atkinson worked for Grumman, the aerospace company that built components for NASA. He also worked on Apollo 12, but was laid off in August 1969, before it was launched.last_img read more

Planes hangars destroyed in Grove Field fire in Camas

0 Comment

first_imgTen hangar bays and several recreational planes were destroyed when a two-alarm fire ripped through a building at Grove Field Airport in Camas on Monday night.Firefighters from East County Fire & Rescue, whose station was a couple hundred of feet from the flames, were the first to respond to the airfield, at 632 N.E. 267th Ave. They were there within minutes of the 911 call that came in at 10:22 p.m. Arriving crews reported that explosions blew out hangar doors and knocked off the roof of the airport’s C Row, and that the flames reached 40 to 50 feet high, East County Fire & Rescue Chief Scott Koehler said. The 10,000-square-foot hangar is made of wood and sheet metal. There are fire walls on each end of the hangar, but only simple partitions separating the hangar bays within the building. That, along with the fact that airplane fuel burns quickly, led to the fast-moving fire, Koehler said. After about 20 minutes of suppression efforts, crews called a second alarm, asking for additional resources from the Vancouver and Camas-Washougal fire departments. Firefighters kept the blaze from spreading to adjacent buildings and knocked the fire down by about 11 p.m. No one was injured.last_img read more

Studio City IPO moves Melco Resorts one step closer to acquisition Bernstein

0 Comment

first_imgStudio City’s recent IPO has provided a potential future pathway for its majority owner Melco Resorts and Entertainment to complete a full acquisition, despite Melco’s stake falling by almost 7% as a result of the IPO process.Brokerage Bernstein gave its verdict on the offering in a note this week, describing it as a positive both for Melco and New Cotai LLC in relation to their respective ambitions. JW Marriott at Galaxy Macau named venue and Galaxy Entertainment Group named Venue Sponsor for 2019 Asian Gaming Power 50 Black Tie Gala Dinner The IPO, which saw Studio City sell 41.3% of its equity while raising US$413 million in proceeds, ultimately reduced Melco’s stake from 60% to 53.2% and New Cotai’s from 40% to 24.4%. Affiliates of New Cotai acquired 12.8% with the remaining 9.4% snapped up by public investors.Nevertheless, Bernstein said the transaction “provides for New Cotai a step toward monetizing its interest in Studio City and a potential path towards a future Melco acquisition of Studio City. If Melco were to eventually buy out minority interest, the IPO and public market trading price also help set a price threshold.”Bernstein added that the IPO price of US$12.50 per share – at the very top end of the pricing range – was a positive event for Melco, allowing it to retain majority ownership while reducing Studio City debt.

Zurich commits to Women in Finance Charter

first_imgInsurance organisation Zurich has signed up to the Women in Finance Charter, which aims to improve gender diversity within the financial services industry.The charter, which is a voluntary initiative launched by the government in March 2016, commits financial organisations that sign up to link the remuneration packages of their executive staff to gender diversity targets.Measures that have to be followed in order to support the charter include setting internal targets for gender diversity in senior management, publishing details of the progress made in reaching targets online, and appointing a senior executive team member who will be responsible for gender diversity and inclusion.Zurich will also provide a statement outlining how it will ensure the pay of the senior executive team is linked to delivery against its gender diversity targets, and the date that this will come into effect.The organisation’s commitment to the charter follows on from its achievement in securing Economic Dividends for Gender Equality (Edge) certification in November 2015, in recognition of its efforts to address gender equality in the areas of flexible working, equal pay for equal work, leadership, recruitment and promotion, and workplace culture.Georgina Farrell (pictured), head of HR, UK at Zurich, said: “Signing the charter is the next step on the journey we’ve made on gender diversity over the last two years. This includes being the first global insurer to achieve EDGE certification, as well [as] the launch of our Women’s Innovation Network (Win) and being a founding member of the Gender Inclusion Network for Insurance, a collaboration of Women’s Networks in Insurance.“We’re fully committed to embedding gender diversity and inclusion into all of our practices and believe that this will deliver better outcomes for our employees, customers, and shareholders.”last_img read more
