Soy Growers Industry Leaders Talk 2017 Policy Outlook at National Biodiesel Conference

first_imgSoy leaders attended the national biodiesel industry conference hosted by the National Biodiesel Board (NBB) this week in San Diego, Calif.American Soybean Association (ASA) biodiesel representative Mike Cunningham (IL), ASA Washington staff and numerous soybean farmers and state soybean association leaders participated in the conference.A prominent theme throughout the event was the federal policy outlook for 2017 and the challenges and uncertainty facing the industry in the year ahead.The expiration of the biodiesel tax credit at the end of 2016 creates great uncertainty for biodiesel producers and stakeholders and the challenges of getting it extended are heightened this year by the effort and focus of Congress on enacting comprehensive tax reform.  The comprehensive reform being considered would dramatically alter the tax code and the focus on overarching tax policy leaves the fate of the biodiesel tax credit in limbo.The beginning of a new Presidential Administration also creates uncertainty for the biodiesel industry, as new leaders in the White House and at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will take over implementation of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). President-elect Trump has pledged continued support for the RFS program, but questions remain as to whether the incoming nominee for EPA Administrator, Scott Pruitt, will support increasing biodiesel and advanced biofuel volume obligations or maintain a status quo and how the new EPA regime will implement other specific aspects of the RFS program.The biodiesel conference also recognized industry leaders for their efforts to promote and support the biodiesel industry. Among those honored were the Illinois Soybean Association, which received the Industry Partnership Award for their work with the American Lung Association to establish the B20 Club. The unique and impactful program in Illinois is focused on raising the profile of fleets that use B20 including municipalities, school buses and trucking companies. The B20 Club showcases real stories of how, when, and why members began using B20, what their experiences have been since the switch, and provides peer support for fleet managers and other decision makers who are considering B20 for their own fleets. The efforts of the club have provided confidence in biodiesel and a platform for showcasing successful biodiesel user stories in the media, to decision makers, and the general public.last_img read more

Cape Horn teacher returns to roots

first_img WASHOUGAL — Growing up on her family’s dairy in Washougal, Erika Stauffer dreamed of being a teacher and even played “school” with her dolls.When she was old enough, she attended rural Cape Horn-Skye School about seven miles up the Washougal River Road from her family’s farm. Now she’s a first-year teacher at her old school, where she teaches second grade.“It’s always been my dream to come back up here,” Stauffer said. “I love this school. This small-town community feel.”Although it’s part of the Washougal School District, Cape Horn-Skye School is just over the Clark County border in Skamania County. Its bucolic setting near the meandering Washougal River is about 27 miles from downtown Vancouver.As a student at the rural school, Stauffer was inspired by her teachers Margie Gary and Jocelyn Aldridge.“They were encouraging, personable, positive. Easy to relate to,” Stauffer said. “I always looked up to them.”Both women still teach at Cape Horn-Skye and, just as in the past, they’ve been encouraging and supportive to Stauffer.As a first-year teacher, Stauffer participates in the Beginning Educators Support Team grant program and is mentored by another second-grade teacher in her building. She also meets with other first-year teachers in other schools “to talk about how the year is going,” she said. “It’s been helpful.”“I’ve known I wanted to be a teacher since middle school,” Stauffer said. “I’ve always loved working with kids and wanted to make a positive difference in their lives.” Click on map to enlargelast_img read more

Is It Wrong to Borrow From Other Magazines

first_imgHomage on the RangeI came up with the idea for our most recent cover [pictured above, right] while at a photo shoot for a piece on New Orleans pride as part of our new “Southern Breeze Hot List.” In previous years Southern Breeze has had a “Best Of” issue but trying to fit almost 30 topics into six to eight pages resulted in scattershot, albeit eclectic, feature. After seeing the photos at the shoot, I suggested using this as a cover option when my art director, Catherine, was not overly enthused by the other shots she had in her canon.Once she sent out cover comps to me and my staff, we took a look at all 12 of them, and I picked the one above as my favorite [the one to the left is a typical cover from before my reign]. As my staff and I looked at the printouts, my assistant editor noted that the one I chose was just like a Time Out New York cover.And then it hit me: Hell yeah, it looked like a TONY cover because that is my all-time favorite magazine and I’ve gleaned ideas from inside—and now, outside—its pages for a while, even before coming to Southern Breeze. For example, while managing editor at the late, great Lighting Dimensions we instituted a redesign and I suggested a “5 Questions With …” for the front of book, similar to TONY’s “Three Questions For …” in its FOB. It was included and proved to be a popular featurette. (The “5 Questions With …” survived Lighting Dimensions’ merger with Entertainment Design to become Live Design, which is more than I can say for the managing editor!)So I guess my question is: Is it wrong to borrow from other magazines? It’s certainly not due to a lack of original ideas on our part, but I feel that if you see something that another magazine is doing that you think would work in your own publication, then why not? Besides, when I look at some of Southern Breeze’s competitors, it’s obvious they’ve borrowed a fair amount from us. Thankfully, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery! I wanted to broach the subject that I’m sure many editors, writers, art directors, et al. have come across over the years, and that’s the influence of other publications. I’m not talking plagiarism, just borrowing a good idea.In the two years that I’ve been at the helm of Southern Breeze I haven’t been trying to reinvent the wheel, but I have been slowly nudging the magazine into a different arena with a more cutting edge, contemporary, and, yes, even urban feel. As a regional/lifestyle publication with Deep South roots, it would be far too easy to continue down the path of least resistance. But the South is changing. So, too, should its magazines.Yes, we still have recipes, shopping, home fashion and all the things that make for a perfectly comfortable fit with our affable and affluent audience. But I felt the magazine could do more to truly reflect the diversity along the Gulf Coast.last_img read more

Chinese buyers hesitant to buy Alaska seafood as US weighs another round

first_imgFishermen offload halibut in Homer. (Photo courtesy Rudy Gustafson)In the first round of what seems to be an escalating trade dispute between the U.S. and China, tariffs have been levied on billions of dollars worth of goods in both countries. The Alaska fishing industry, which harvests roughly 60 percent of all wild seafood in the U.S., has been caught in the crosshairs of that disagreement.Listen nowBut it’s not the Chinese tariffs that’s giving the industry heartburn. It’s a proposed tariff on seafood imported from China.The Alaska seafood industry has a unique relationship with China. Nearly $1 billion worth of Alaska seafood was exported into the country in 2017, but that’s just the first step in a global supply chain.“So much of our exports to China are reprocessed and re-exported,” Garrett Everidge, a fisheries economist with the McDowell Group, said.Everidge explains that after those fish are reprocessed, they’re exported into markets around the world, including the U.S. Although, it’s hard to discern from trade data just how much winds back up in the U.S. market.China kept its relationship with the Alaska seafood industry in mind when it levied a 25 percent tariff on U.S. seafood earlier this summer.“The majority of those exports are going to be excluded from those tariffs,” Everidge said.The Trump administration is currently considering a list of retaliatory tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods. On that list is a 25 percent levy on seafood imported from China, including Alaska products reprocessed in the country.“As of right now, there’s no indication that product originating in Alaska would be excluded from those import tariffs,” Everidge added. “It’s kind of an unusual situation where the U.S. would in effect be taxing production from a U.S. state.”Jeremy Woodrow with the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute explains just the possibility of that tariff is already causing Chinese fish buyers to hold off on purchasing seafood from Alaska, which may create a backlog of frozen product in the U.S.“I’m not really sure the volume of backlog,” Woodrow said. “I just do know that there’s some uncertainty in the market and there’s some hesitancy to pull the trigger on those purchases by our traditional buyers that we already have set in place.”Woodrow explains that processing any backlog domestically would be costly both in terms of labor and in the volume the state exports.“It’s easy to assume that we would keep that product here in the U.S., but the unfortunate part is that there might not be the capacity to process that product in the United States,” Woodrow noted.However, demand for Alaska’s seafood is high and other countries may fill the void left by Chinese buyers.At least one major processor, who didn’t wish to speak publicly, confirmed that other foreign buyers are picking up some of that slack.That’s good news, but the processor also says this year’s pink salmon harvest came in under forecast, and that it may be harder to sell larger volumes of fish if the dispute lasts.Pink salmon tops the list of Alaska seafood imports into China in both volume and value. Alaska processors exported $170 million worth of pink salmon in 2017 alone.Woodrow also warns that selling fish to non-traditional buyers could put a strain on Alaska’s relationship with the Chinese market.“This could be a short-term deal, and you don’t want to move away from a market that has a lot of value and a lot of potential,” Woodrow explained.If it’s not a short-term deal, that frozen backlog could grow large and prices on the docks could fall. Morgan Jones is a commercial seiner based in Homer. Inside his boat, Jones says prices have been good this year despite the trade dispute.“The processors are still interested in buying all the fish we can get, and the initial price from last year is up a little bit,” Jones said. “So, we certainly haven’t see a negative impact yet.”But ex-vessel prices are typically based on the previous year, and any impact on the docks is likely to be seen in 2019. Jones has seen this happen before. He recalls prices for pink salmon being cut in half after the U.S. sanctioned Russia after it annexed Crimea in 2014.“That was a huge deal for us. We always pay attention and watch these things with concern,” Jones added.The U.S. Trade Representative’s office is taking public comment on the proposed list of tariffs. Many in the industry want Chinese seafood dropped from the list or an exemption for products originating in the U.S.A spokesperson with the office said in an email Friday that there’s no set timeline for the list to be finalized after the comment period ends on Sept. 6.But previous rounds of tariffs have been finalized and implemented within just weeks of the comment period ending, which could have Alaska’s fishing industry bracing for more uncertainty.last_img read more

EVM use planned in 5th UZ polls

first_imgBacktracking from its previous stance, the election commission will use electronic voting machines (EVMs) on a very small scale in the 5th countrywide upazila election which will be completed in five phases.Though the commission had a plan to hold all district sadar upazila polls with EVMs, the EC has announced to use the machines in only 10 upazila parishads in the 3rd and 4th phases of the upazila elections.The polls to four upazila parishads in the second phase and six upazila parishads in the third phase will be completely with EVMs instead of traditional ballot papers, said EC secretary Helaluddin Ahmed on Saturday.”But the commission has yet to take the decision whether the EVMs will be used in the fifth and final phases,” he told UNB.The 10 upazilas are Rangpur Sadar, Gopalganj Sadar, Manikganj Sadar and Meherpur Sadar of the third phase, and Cox’s Bazar Sadar, Patuakhali Sadar, Mymensingh Sadar, Bagerhat Sadar, Munshiganj Sadar and Feni Sadar of the fourth phase election.The third and fourth phases of the election will be held in 117 upazila parishads on 24 March (Sunday) and 122 upazila parishads on 31 March.This time the EC will complete the elections to some 480 upazilas, out of 492, in five phases. The EC has already arranged the first two phases of the elections on 10 and 18 March.In February last, the EC enacted the Upazila Parishad Election (Electronic Voting Machine) Rules 2019 to pave the way for introducing the use of the new technology in upazila elections.Just three months before the 11th general election, the Executive Committee of the National Economic Council (ECNEC) approved a Tk 3,825.34 crore project to procure 150,000 EVMs.In the 30-December parliamentary polls, the newly designed EVMs were used in six constituencies — Dhaka-6 and-13, Chattogram-9, Rangpur-3, Khulna-2 and Satkhira– out of the country’s total 300 seats.On 14 January, the EC secretary said the EC decided to use the EVMs in all district sadar upazilas across the country, but on 18 February he said the EVM machines will be used in the sadar upazilas in the last three phases.The EC officials said the use of EVMs may cost Tk 1.3 billion this time, which partially contributed to increasing the total election cost.The EC has estimated that more than Tk 7.5 billion will be spent on arranging the 5th upazila election, which is the double of the cost of the 4th upazila polls arranged in 2014.Of the estimated cost, the officials said about Tk 4.5 billion will be spent on maintaining law and order, while the remaining Tk 3 billion will be used to conduct the election.In 2014, the EC had to spend some Tk 3.73 billion to arrange the 4th upazila election held in six phases.In 2009, a total of Tk 1.33 billion was spent on arranging the 3rd countrywide upazila election that was held in a single day.In 2010, the ATM Shamsul Huda-led EC first used old-featured EVMs on a pilot basis at a few polling stations in the Chattogram city corporation election. The EVMs were jointly made by Bangladesh Machine Tools Factory and BUET in 2009 and 2011.Later, the EVMs were used partially in different local elections. In January, 2011, the Cumilla city corporation election was held with EVMs in its entirety.In 2012, the Kazi Rakibuddin Ahmad-led commission decided not to use EVMs in the 10th national election due to the chance of technical errors amid strong opposition from BNP and some other political parties.Assuming office in February 2017, the incumbent commission had taken a plan to use the newly-designed EVMs instead of the old-ones in the election and finally started procuring the newly designed EVMs before the 11th national election.last_img read more

What does a citys appearance say about itself

first_img © 2013 However, sometimes the different score types were inversely related, which could reveal particular insight. For instance, locations with low safety scores and high class scores correlated with higher violent crime rates. In such situations, the researchers explain that the “orthogonal component” between class and safety carries important information.The researchers also found a correlation between safety and class scores and homicide rates in New York City. It’s well-known that average income, population, area, and average age in a zip code can partially explain the variation of homicide across zip codes—specifically, these statistics explain 69.9% of homicide variation. Here, the researchers found that adding the average perceptions of safety and class, along with their standard deviations, to the traditional statistics can explain 79.4% of homicide variation, a statistically significant increase. The discovery indicates that the measures of urban perception contain information that is not contained in the traditional statistics alone.Another interesting result the researchers found is that the images from New York City and Boston elicited a wider range of perceptions than the images from Salzburg and Linz. This finding suggests that the American cities are perceived as more unequal than the Austrian cities. Further, the images of both American cities are geographically clustered closer together based on their scores compared with the Austrian cities. In other words, the American cities appear more segregated, with larger gaps between their “good” and “bad” neighborhoods than their Austrian counterparts.Designing tomorrow’s citiesThe idea that urban perception can influence various social dimensions such as crime and health is not new, and may be best exhibited by the Broken Windows Theory. According to this theory, relatively minor disorder such as broken windows, graffiti and litter can induce more serious kinds of disorder such as violent crime. Although the theory is controversial, it has influenced policies that focus on repairing minor problems in order to help fight off more serious criminal activity.The researchers also note in their paper that urban perception is at the root of many urban planning theories. However, planning movements of the past century have varied widely, from the monumental buildings of the “City Beautiful” movement, to the mixture of low-density housing and parks of “The Garden City” movement, to high-density buildings and parks of Le Corbusier’s “Radiant City.” Later, in the 1960s, the influential urban planning writer Jane Jacobs perceptively reflected on the connections she observed between the physical environment and the social interactions of its citizens.Perhaps one of the problems with defining which urban features promote the well-being of its inhabitants is the lack of big data of urban perception, and this is the gap that the current study is attempting to fill. In the future, the researchers hope to develop techniques to identify the specific features that contribute to high scores. They are now launching a new study in which 56 cities are being scored with respect to 5 new dimensions. The goal of the new study is to compare cities and identify the architectural and planning features that help give rise to different evaluative responses. To participate in the study, visit Eventually, the researchers hope to involve not only participants on the web but also incorporate machine learning tools and crowdsourcing. They also hope to explore some of the limiting factors, such as image quality, time of day, and weather conditions, that may cause bias. Explore further Citation: What does a city’s appearance say about itself? (2013, July 25) retrieved 18 August 2019 from In a new study, researchers at the MIT Media Lab have asked Internet users to compare thousands of geo-tagged images from four cities in terms of their perceived safety, class, and uniqueness. The results not only allow a comparison of different parts of a city, but can even explain homicide rates beyond what is explained by income alone. As cities continue to grow, the researchers hope that understanding the correlation between urban perception and various social dimensions can help guide urban growth.The research was conducted by Phil Salesses at the MIT Media Lab’s Macro Connections group, under the supervision of Professor Cesar A. Hidalgo, and in collaboration with Katja Schetchner from the Austrian Institute of Technology. The results are published in PLOS ONE.Data on urban perceptionOverall, the study is an attempt to quantify people’s perceptions of cities and neighborhoods using big, robust data. The researchers collected 4,000 geo-tagged images of places in New York City and Boston in the US, as well as Salzburg and Linz in Austria. The images from the American cities were sourced from Google Street View, while the images of the Austrian cities were collected manually onsite. Then the researchers created a website and extended an open invitation to anyone interested in participating. Users were shown two randomly selected images, and asked to click on one in response to one of three questions: “Which place looks safer?”, “Which place looks more upper-class?”, or “Which place looks more unique?” The survey attracted 7,872 participants from 91 countries, who contributed more than 200,000 votes.The researchers assigned each image a score of 1-10 based on its win ratio, or the fraction of times it got selected over another image. The researchers also incorporated a correction factor to account for the win ratios of the images it was compared with, as well as calculated the robustness of the data, or agreement among users.Implications are more than skin-deepThe researchers then used the data to create high-resolution maps of cities showing different evaluative criteria. By analyzing the data, the researchers made several interesting observations. Not too surprisingly, they found that places with higher safety scores also had higher class and uniqueness scores.

Auditorgeneral says Opap owes state over €50m

first_imgTo date, the state’s financial claims against Opap Cyprus Ltd, a subsidiary of the Greek gambling giant, amount to ‘well over’ €50 million, the auditor-general has said.In its 2016 report on the ministry of finance, the audit office again highlights what it calls a ‘lopsided’ agreement with Opap, the only company allowed to run lottery games on the island.The deal was signed at a time when Opap belonged to the Greek state – which is no longer the case.In 2016, the state’s revenues from taxing Opap came to €12.8m, down from €13.3m the previous year.Data shows that from 2003 – when the interstate agreement was concluded – up to 2014, the Republic collected on average 7.6 per cent of the company’s turnover.Alternatively, the revenues to the state amounted to 20 per cent of Opap’s gross profit on average.Over the last few years, this has declined to 16 per cent of gross profit, even though the lottery outfit’s turnover spiked after it introduced the Kino game.The problem, according to the audit office, is the method of calculating the tax levied on Opap’s operations.The current agreement – which the auditor-general wants scrapped – stipulates that the ‘theoretical’, as opposed to real, winnings paid out to winners, are deducted from Opap’s annual revenues before the dues to the state are calculated.As a result, the state is losing millions per year in potential additional earnings from the deal.“It has been observed that the theoretical winnings paid out are higher than the company’s actual expenses, and it is these actual expenses which should have been taken into account,” the report states.The audit office points out that, following consultations, the finance ministry agreed to raise the tax on Opap from 24 per cent to 26.5 per cent.“In our view, this percentage would make sense only if the payout to winners is no less than 65 per cent,” it notes.On the auditor-general’s recommendation, parliament has been drafting legislation to govern the new agreement between Opap and the state.The draft legislation contains a clause that could be problematic, according to the audit office. It provides for a no-bid contract for the lottery games concession, which potentially contravenes EU law.Cyprus needs to submit the legislation to the EU prior to bringing it to parliament for a vote.The auditor-general also highlights Opap’s refusal to be audited by the Treasury. Eventually the company agreed to grant government officials limited access to documents.From a cursory investigation of these documents, “there appeared to be indications of serious matters relating, among others, to the correctness of the payments made to the Republic of Cyprus.”In February 2017, the attorney-general instructed police to open a criminal probe into Opap. The Nicosia district court granted police a search warrant, but the company managed to have the warrant voided on technical grounds after appealing to the supreme court.In December 2017 the Nicosia district court issued a new search warrant, which Opap is also challenging before the supreme court.Elsewhere in the Audit Office report, it emerges that in 2016 banks and investment firms paid nothing into the national bank resolution fund, with the designated €50m in contributions coming from the taxpayer instead.In July 2014, the European Commission issued the Single Resolution Mechanism Regulation, according to which the proceeds from national bank resolution funds would henceforth be transferred into a single EU pot, the Single Resolution Fund (SRF).The directive was not transposed into Cypriot national law until March 2016, and then only partially, as a result of which the Republic did not collect any contributions from banks or investment firms for the years 2015 and 2016.Despite this, an audit found that during 2016 two payments worth a combined €50m were made from the government’s Consolidated Fund, covering the contributions of the banks for the years 2015 and 2016.“Given the above, our agency is of the opinion that the legal basis by which these payments were made into the National Resolution Fund, may be problematic,” the report notes.A bill tabled to parliament last year aimed to deduct lenders’ contributions to the SRF from their contributions to the national fund.Up until then, Cypriot banks – on paper at least – paid into both funds, the national resolution fund and the SRF.Launched in 2016, the SRF is financed from annual contributions from banks, but it will only reach its target size of €55bn by the end of 2023.The 19 countries sharing the euro agreed on a single bank supervisor and a Single Resolution Mechanism (SRM) for winding up failed banks, with the costs to be covered from a dedicated fund, filled by the banks themselves.The auditor-general also zeroes in on the benefits regime within public-law entities (such as semi-governmental organisations), which he finds has remained unchanged despite the difficult economic times.Staff still receive much the same benefits, including medical coverage, to which they contribute nothing while there is no cap on the employer’s contribution.Employees continue to enjoy other perks, like special low-interest rate loans.On the economy in general, the Audit Office notes that the general government debt in 2016 came to €19.298bn, compared to €18.960bn the previous year, an increase of 1.8 per cent. The debt to GDP ratio in 2016 was 107.8 per cent, up from 107.5 per cent in 2015.The largest share of the general government debt in 2016 related to the state’s borrowing. Around 59 per cent of the debt related to loans received from the European Stability Mechanism and the International Monetary Fund during 2013-2016.The remaining 41 per cent related to other loans, granted to Cyprus mostly by the Russian Federation, the European Investment Bank and the Council of Europe Development Bank.More broadly in its report, the Audit Office finds fault with the manner in which it is granted access to finance ministry documents.It has asked the finance ministry to provide it with suitable office space “in order to ensure the confidentiality of discussions and interviews.“The procedure which the finance ministry is attempting to establish for access to files is illegal and unacceptable. The only acceptable procedure would be the file billing system.”You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoKelley Blue Book10 Electric Cars That Last the LongestKelley Blue BookUndoDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoThree arrested in connection with hotel theftsUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
