first_img Rector Martinsville, VA La situación de Venezuela sigue igual o peor. Observadores dicen que no ven que el oficialismo haga algún gesto de conciliación, todo lo contrario cada día toma decisiones que enfurecen a la oposición y a los ciudadanos comunes. Los esfuerzos anti-constitucionales del mandatario Nicolás Maduro de asegurarse poderes totales mediante “ley habilitante” lo convierte en dictador al estar en sus manos todos los poderes del estado. Los obispos católicos romanos advirtieron del peligro de mayores hechos de violencia que pueden costar vidas y traer mayores dolores a la población. ”Rechazamos la usura, la corrupción y la especulación” dicen en un comunicado.En Cuba se anunció la jubilación del cardenal arzobispo de La Habana, Jaime Ortega que ha llegado a la edad de retiro. Como todo el que ejerce un cargo de responsabilidad pública, Ortega ha sido severamente criticado aunque le atribuyen aciertos como la liberación de 125 presos políticos. En círculos eclesiásticos abundan las “predicciones” sobre quién será el próximo arzobispo de La Habana.La Primera Iglesia Metodista de la calle Corrientes en el centro de Buenos Aires ha sido atacada por desconocidos que destrozaron parte de sus instalaciones como muebles y el altar, informó el obispo de Argentina Frank de Nully Brown. Esta iglesia construida en 1843 y reconstruida en 1874 fue el primer templo metodista en América del Sur. El congresista demócrata Luis Gutiérrez de Chicago se perfila como el líder latino más importante del país, según una encuesta del periódico digital Huffington Post. Gutiérrez, de origen puertorriqueño, ha luchado por la legislación para regularizar la situación de millones de inmigrantes indocumentados en Estados Unidos. En otra encuesta sobre la posibilidad de llegar a ser presidente, Gutiérrez obtuvo el doble de los votos comparado con el senador cubano-americano Marco Rubio. Según un estudio realizado por las Naciones Unidas, América Latina “es la región más violenta del mundo” con serias consecuencias en lo social y económico. Entre el año 2000 y el 2010 la tasa de homicidios alcanzó un crecimiento de 11 por ciento lo que se traduce en más de un millón de muertos. Delitos como el hurto se han triplicado en el mismo período.  ¡Señor, ten piedad!Julio César Holguín, obispo de la Iglesia Episcopal Dominicana, está tratando de reunir un grupo de “notables” para hacerle frente a la decisión del Tribunal Constitucional de la República que ha aprobado una ley que le quitó la ciudadanía dominicana a los miles de haitianos que viven y trabajan en el país desde 1929.Agnes Abuom, abogada líder de la Iglesia Anglicana de Kenia, ha sido electa por unanimidad moderadora del comité central del Consejo Mundial de Iglesias en su reciente reunión celebrada en Corea del Sur. Abuom es la primera mujer y la primera africana en ocupar esta posición en los 65 años de vida del Consejo. Sus áreas de interés son justicia económica, paz y reconciliación. Rafael García, popular sacerdote encargado de la Iglesia del Espíritu Santo en una sección de Miami conocida como la Pequeña Habana, será instalado como párroco de la misma iglesia el 14 de diciembre por el obispo Leopoldo Frade. García se convierte así en el décimo párroco desde que esta iglesia fue instituida hace 75 años. García y su esposa, Anaysa, ambos cubanos, tienen un niño pequeño Anthony. La revista italiana Panorama asegura que la Agencia de Seguridad Nacional  espió las comunicaciones del Vaticano, incluso en la residencia donde se hospedaban los cardenales durante el cónclave papal. La nota citando a WikiLeaks dijo que aparentemente el papa Francisco también habría sido objeto de vigilancia por Estados Unidos desde el 2005 cuando era arzobispo de Buenos Aires.La Asamblea Nacional de Ecuador, órgano legislativo de la nación, mantiene un debate que busca despenalizar el aborto por violación. La propuesta fue introducida por Paola Pabón, integrante del partido de gobierno, hecho que fue calificado como una “traición” por parte del presidente Rafael Correa que ha dicho que renunciará a la presidencia si se aprueba la ley del aborto.El Manual de Diagnóstico y Estadística de los Trastornos Mentales define la pedofilia como “una orientación o preferencia sexual desprovista de consumación”, mientras que el “desorden pedófilo” se define como “una compulsión caracterizada en personas que usan así su sexualidad”. La preferencia de los pedófilos es por menores de 13 años.Recientemente, el Parlamento del Reino Unido consideró quitar la referencia al Holocausto del plan de estudios de las escuelas porque “ofende” a la población musulmana que asegura que el Holocausto nunca ocurrió.

EPA and USDA Dispute Corn Stover Study

first_imgHome Energy EPA and USDA Dispute Corn Stover Study EPA and USDA Dispute Corn Stover Study By Andy Eubank – Apr 28, 2014 SHARE Two federal agencies joined the biofuels industry last week in seriously questioning the results of a University of Nebraska study that claims negative greenhouse gas emissions impacts in using corn stover for ethanol production.A statement by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency spokeswoman Liz Purchia about the report noted problems with “hypothetical assumption that 100 percent of corn stover in a field is harvested” which she calls “an extremely unlikely scenario that is inconsistent with recommended agricultural practices. As such, it does not provide useful information relevant to the lifecycle GHG emissions from corn stover ethanol. EPA’s lifecycle analysis assumes up to 50 percent corn stover harvest. EPA selected this assumption based on data in the literature and in consultation with agronomy experts at USDA to reflect current agricultural practices.”During a forum on climate change right after the study hit the headlines last week, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack also pointed out that it is based on a false premise. “The study started with an assumption about the way corn stover would be removed from the land. The problem with the assumption is no farmer in the country would actually take that much crop residue,” Vilsack said. “It’s not what’s happening on the ground. If you make the wrong assumption, you’re going to come up with the wrong conclusions.”Work done by Dr. Douglas Karlen with the USDA Agricultural Research Service was cited several times in the UNL study. In response to questions from POET-DSM, which is using corn stover as feedstock at a plant in Iowa, Karlen said the study “makes unrealistic assumptions and uses citations out of context to reinforce the authors’ viewpoint.”According to Dr. Karlen, the research fails to differentiate between responsible biomass removal and “excessive” biomass removal, projecting a removal rate of approximately 75% across the entire Corn Belt.“Harvesting 75% of all corn stover produced in the 10 Corn Belt states is unrealistic, far greater than any projections made by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) in their projections for developing a sustainable bioenergy industry, and would certainly result in the depletion of soil organic matter.”Source: Cindy Zimmerman at www.domesticfuel.com SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Previous articleIndiana Farmers Helping Boost Mexican Pork ConsumptionNext articlePork Checkoff TQA Program Revised Andy Eubanklast_img read more

RSF calls for end to prosecutions of Kyrgyz media and journalists

first_img News June 23, 2017 – Updated on June 26, 2017 RSF calls for end to prosecutions of Kyrgyz media and journalists KyrgyzstanEurope – Central Asia Protecting journalists Judicial harassmentEconomic pressureFreedom of expression RSF_en Organisation Follow the news on Kyrgyzstan RSF calls for the immediate release of Uzbek journalist News Credit: EMMANUEL DUNAND / AFP Kyrgyzstan used to be seen as an exception in Central Asia as regards media pluralism, but the first half of 2017 has been marked by criminal proceedings against media outlets for “insulting” President Almazbek Atambayev, the blocking of the independent news website Ferghana, arrests of journalists and verbal attacks on the media by the president. “In a democracy such as Kyrgyzstan, the presidential election being held in October ought to be an opportunity for encouraging a climate of debate and an exchange of critical ideas but instead the Kyrgyz authorities seem to want to imitate their neighbours and adopt their repressive methods,” RSF editor-in-chief Virginie Dangles said. “It is vital that the European Union should use the next round in its human rights dialogue with Kyrgyzstan as a platform for urging the Kyrgyz authorities to put a stop to this offensive against critical media.” The prosecutor-general brought no fewer than seven complaints against two independent news websites in March and April, accusing them of “insulting the president’s honour and dignity.” The first two complaints were brought against Azattyk, the Kyrgyz offshoot of Radio Free Europe/ Radio Liberty (RFE/RL), and were prompted by two articles that quoted opposition politician Omurbek Tekebayev as claiming that President Atambayev and others had bank accounts in Cyprus. The five other complaints, also prompted by critical stories, targeted the news website Zanoza and its co-founders, editor Dina Maslova and reporter Naryn Aiyp. In all, the prosecutor-general sought nearly 50 million Soms (650,000 euros) in damages. Access to the offending articles was blocked and, in March, a court in the capital, Bishkek, ordered the freezing of the two website’s bank accounts. The proceedings against Azattyk were dropped after RFE/RL president Thomas Kent met with President Atambayev in May. Those against Zanoza still stand but the constitutional court has to rule on their constitutionality before the cases can proceed any further. The attempts to gag independent media outlets have continued in June. At the start of the month, a Bishkek court ordered the blocking of the Ferghana website, a leading source of news about Central Asia. Criminal proceeding have also been brought against Ferghana’s correspondent in Kyrgyzstan, Ulugbek Babakulov, who is accused of “inciting inter-ethnic hatred” in a 23 May article about social network hate messages targeting Kyrgyzstan’s Uzbek minority. As the subject of inter-ethnic relations is largely off-limits for the media in Kyrgyzstan, Babakulov has also been the target of a death threats and a smear campaign in the state-owned media. A report on the state TV channel OTRK branded him as an “enemy” of the country and several legislators have called for him to be stripped of his nationality. He has fled the country. Ferghana editor Daniil Kislov points out that Atambayev is not seeking reelection and says this “purge” of the media is designed to guarantee his immunity after his term ends. The purge is above all targeting independent media outlets that have covered corruption case implicating Atambayev. On the official website of the president’s office, Atambayev accused a “small group of independent journalists, media and politicians” in March of trying to destabilize the country. And in a subsequent meeting with foreign ambassadors, he described certain journalists as “immoral idiots.” Kyrgyzstan is ranked 89th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index. As the European Union prepares for the next round in its human rights dialogue with Kyrgyzstan in Brussels on 27 June, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) urges EU representatives to seek more guarantees for the protection of the country’s media, which have been the victims of repeated attacks in recent months.
