SHARE By Gary Truitt – May 26, 2015 Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articleGas Prices Not Affected by Renewable Fuel Standard Gary Truitt Statewide 85 % of the corn and 54% of the soybeans have been planted. Nationally 86% of the corn is in the ground. Eric Miller, field agronomist with DuPont Pioneer in NE Indiana, told HAT that over the weekend most growers wrapped up planting, “Most of the corn has been planted in the north and east, and about 80% of the soybeans in this area are in.”Miller added germination and early stand establishment is also going well, “The corn that was planted around the first of May is entering the V4 stage; while the corn planted around Mothers Day is at the V2 stage and was a bit slow to get out of the ground because of the cooler weather.” USDA reported that 64% of the Indiana corn that has been planted has emerged. By region, 64% emerged in the North, 57% in Central, and 73% in the South. Miller says the crops that got planted this past week will benefit from the rain forecast for this week.He said black cutworm pressure has been higher than average. His recommendation to growers is to keep an eye on this crop for more diseases, “The late planted corn will not pollinate until late July, so it will be susceptible to diseases for quite a while.” Pioneer Crop Update 5/26/15 Facebook Twitter Pioneer Crop Update 5/26/15 SHARE Facebook Twitter Home News Feed Pioneer Crop Update 5/26/15

Held since 28 April, Nini has spent a total of 140 days in prison. He is appealing against the one-year jail sentence he received in June.Nini’s lawyer submitted another request for Nini to be released provisionally but they expect it to be rejected, like all the others they have made, as the judicial authorities seem determined to persecute the daily Al-Massae’s editor. The court said it would render its decision on 20 September.The request to visit Nini in detention that Reporters Without Borders submitted to the prosecutor-general on 23 June has meanwhile been denied. Procedural grounds were given for the refusal. A new request has just been submitted.Nini was convicted on 9 June on charges of disinformation and attacking state institutions, public figures and the “security and integrity of the nation and citizens” under articles 263, 264 and 266 of the criminal code at the end of a trial in Casablanca marked by judicial intransigence, repeated adjournments and a refusal to free him on bail.Al-Massae journalists told Reporters Without Borders that the prosecution was prompted by articles in which Nini criticized corruption, including corruption among associates of the king, and raised questions about one of the king’s closest allies, Fouad Ali El-Himma, head of the Authenticity and Modernity Party. They said he also published information about intelligence chief Abdellatif Hammouchi and called for repeal of the anti-terrorism law. News
Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy More Cool Stuff Retiring JPL Deputy Director Gen. Eugene Tattini Image credit: NASA/JPL-CaltechGen. Eugene Tattini, who has served for the past 12 years as deputy director of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., will begin his retirement on Sept. 20. His successor, U.S. Air Force Lt. Gen. Larry D. James, will assume his duties on Sept. 23.The deputy director functions as JPL’s chief operating officer and is responsible to the director for the day-to-day management of JPL’s resources and activities. JPL employs 5,000 scientists, engineers, technicians and business support personnel, and generates $1.5 billion in annual revenue. The California Institute of Technology in Pasadena staffs and manages JPL for NASA.“We owe our gratitude to General Tattini for his dedication and contributions during the past 12 years, which were filled with numerous successful spacecraft launches and milestones, including the landing of the Mars rover Curiosity,” said JPL Director Charles Elachi.Before joining JPL in July 2001, Tattini was commander of the U.S. Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center in Los Angeles. His 36-year military career included 20 separate assignments.Born in Madison, Wis., Tattini graduated from the Reserve Officer Training Corps program at the University of Illinois before entering the Air Force in 1965. He holds a Master of Business Administration degree from Oklahoma City University, and certificates from the Air War College and Industrial College of the Armed Forces. He was chosen to attend executive development programs at Cornell University, Ithaca, N.Y., and Harvard University, Cambridge, Mass.“It has been an absolute privilege for me to support the men and women of JPL as deputy director for the past 12 years,” Tattini said. “I have seen the incredibly talented people at JPL perform magic, and I continue to be in awe of them. I leave with my congratulations for a job extremely well done.”Tattini and his wife, Jene, will continue to live in Glendale, Calif., minutes away from their daughter, son-in-law and two young grandsons.Gen. James was selected after a search committee considered a number of distinguished candidates. He has a wide range of experience with space-related activities.“I look forward to working with General James as we move ahead in the exciting, important and ever-changing field of space exploration and technology,” Elachi said.After graduating with distinction from the U.S. Air Force Academy, James received a master’s degree in astronautical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge.Most recently, James was the Air Force Deputy Chief of Staff for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance in Washington, D.C. Earlier in his career, he trained as an Air Force payload specialist for the space shuttle program. James also served as vice commander of the USAF Space and Missile Systems Center in Los Angeles and as commander of the 14th Air Force at Vandenberg Air Force base in California, where he was responsible for all Department of Defense satellite and launch systems.“I’m truly excited to be a part of the amazing JPL team,” Gen. James said. “As someone who has loved space exploration since I was a kid, there’s no better place to be.”James lives in Altadena, Calif., with his wife, Susan. They have a daughter and son-in-law in New York City and a daughter in Nice, France.

Smith Jr. reported to the US. District Court of the District of Columbia that through the first half of 2015, SunTrust has provided 16,921 borrowers with slightly more than $370 million under the terms of the settlement.The NMS requires SunTrust to provide $475 million in consumer relief to distressed borrowers by September 30, 2017. SunTrust is also required as part of the NMS to establish a mortgage origination program and to provide $25 million in consumer relief credit by refinancing mortgages for borrowers who otherwise would not have qualified for refinancing.“SunTrust has completed 69 percent of its consumer relief obligation and did not fail any of its tests on borrower treatment during the second half of 2015,” Smith said. “I will continue to monitor SunTrust’s compliance with the NMS and I will report my findings to the Court and the public later this year.”Smith’s Secondary Professional Firm (SPF) assigned to SunTrust, Crowe Chizek, LLP, tested SunTrust’s Internal Review Group’s work on 31 borrower treatment metrics during the third and fourth quarters 2015 and determined that SunTrust passed all metrics. The metrics included complaint response timeliness, incorrect modification denial, foreclosure sale in error, and loan modification document collection timeline compliance.The NMS was originally finalized in April 2012 between 49 states and the District of Columbia, the federal government, and five banks and/or mortgage servicers (Bank of America, Citi, JPMorgan Chase, Ally/GMAC, and Wells Fargo). As part of the agreement, the five servicers were required to provide $20 billion in consumer relief and $5 billion in other payments.SunTrust became party to the NMS in June 2014 when it settled with the DOJ for $968 million to resolve claims that the bank engaged in improper mortgage origination practices as well as servicing and foreclosure abuses.Click here to view Smith’s report filed with the D.C. District Court, which includes a summary of consumer relief provided by SunTrust through the first half of 2015 and SunTrust’s compliance with the NMS through the second half of 2015.

News UpdatesPlea In Kerala High Court Seeks Regulation Of Government Advertising To Prevent Drain Of Public Funds Lydia Suzanne Thomas27 March 2021 6:45 AMShare This – xThe Kerala High Court has directed the state government to respond on a petition that questions the huge sums expended on government advertisements pertaining to completed schemes and projects.The Bench of Chief Justice S Manikumar and Justice Shaji P Chaly took up the petition on Thursday, directing the state to respond.The petition, filed by one Sony K Thomas through Advocate Praveen K Joy, states that the government advertisements in newspapers read like election manifestos, glorifying the government in power, exhibiting the name of the political party/government.Though asserting that huge amounts of public money were spent on such advertisements, the petition agrees that advertisements to convey various government schemes/benefits/etc. are necessary. However, expenditure on advertisements with photographs of ministers and couching the advertisement in self-congratulatory terms is unnecessary, as per the petitioner.It is stated,”No doubt it is the constitutional duty of an elected responsible government to formulate and implement benevolent policies for the welfare and well being of the public. This need not be unnecessarily highlighted by publishing such advertisements giving Photographs of the concerned ministers and so on, by spending huge amounts. Due to natural calamities, Nippa Virus, Covid-19 Pandemic the Government is facing huge financial stringency. Now in the present pandemic situation, the public are in need for government aid and support. At this juncture spending large amounts on advertisements by the Government is unwarranted..”The petitioner submits in the petition that government advertisements continued in this manner in the State until the Model Code of Conduct for the upcoming Legislative Assembly Elections came into force .Because there are huge variations in rates charged on advertisements depending on the size and length of the advertisement, the petitioner seeks effective guidelines to regulate the publication of government advertisements. The petition refers to the guidelines evolved by the Supreme Court in Common Cause v. Union of India, wherein the aim of government advertising was described as using public funds to “inform the public of their rights, obligations and entitlements as well as to explain government policies, Programmes, services and initiatives.”Pursuant to the Supreme Court’s directions in the case, the petition explains that a committee evolved Guidelines on Content Regulation on Government Advertising 2014 with the object of-Preventing use of public funds to project particular personalitiesExcluding the possibility of misuse of public funds for political mileageAddressing the gap in how government content is regulatedEnsuring all government activities satisfy the test of reasonableness, public interest while dealing with public funds and propertyEnsuring government messaging is coordinated and managed in the best democratic traditions and is responsive to the needs of the public.Underscoring the need for effective monitoring and auditing of advertisements, the petitioner seeks the implementation of the Supreme Court’s guidelines.In this backdrop, the petitioner seeks theses directions to the State of Kerala and the Information and Public Relations Department, – a direction to implement Guidelines On Content Regulation of Government Advertising, when publishing government advertisements in daily newspapers- a direction to formulate a fresh guidelines/procedure to publish advertisements in a single advertisement matters pertaining to multiple government departments, so as to prevent wastage of huge amounts of public funds.TagsGovernment advertisements in media Kerala High Court Chief Justice S.Manikumar Jusitce Shaji P Chaly Next Story
