Corn Growers Asks EPA to Delay Pesticide Review Meeting

first_img By Gary Truitt – Apr 14, 2016 Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Corn Growers Asks EPA to Delay Pesticide Review Meeting Facebook Twitter Previous articleSenators Reach Deal to Act on Comprehensive Energy BillNext articleCrop Protection innovation Costs $286 million per Product Gary Truitt The National Corn Growers Association and other agriculture organizations on Wednesday called on the Environmental Protection Agency to postpone a meeting scheduled for next week related to the pesticide chlorpyrifos. In a letter to EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy, NCGA and 41 other organizations argue that the Science Advisory Panel meeting, scheduled for April 19-21, was “hastily called” and is an attempt by EPA to “fundamentally alter its process for evaluating potential risk and regulation of pesticides.”NCGA supports transparent, science-based oversight of pesticides. NCGA and other groups argue that the EPA is not basing its decisions on science, while also trying to change its longtime review processes. In January, NCGA submitted comments to the EPA reiterating support for chlorpyrifos.Notably, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has also expressed deep concerns over this process and EPA’s departure from decades of science-based processes in a letter sent to EPA.“Effective pest management requires access to a variety of treatments, including chlorpyrifos,” said NCGA President Chip Bowling, a farmer from Maryland. “If we become too reliant on a single tool, it can start to lose its effectiveness, and that’s how resistance develops. Farmers need access to many crop protection tools to ensure all tools can remain effective.” Corn Growers Asks EPA to Delay Pesticide Review Meeting SHARE SHARElast_img read more

Bing Dian reopened under tight control as new sanctions slapped on investigative journalists

first_imgNews News March 12, 2021 Find out more ChinaAsia – Pacific to go further China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison Reporters Without Borders is sickened by cynicism of the Publicity Department (formerly Propaganda Department) which has authorised the reappearance of the Bing Dian (Freezing point), supplement of the daily Zhongguo Qingnian Bao (China Youth Daily) after removing its editor and best investigative journalist.Elsewhere, two journalists, one in Xinjiang in the north-west and the other in Beijing have recently been punished for investigating sensitive topics.”The reappearance of Bing Dian is an act of bogus leniency. The investigative weekly has had its two prime movers cut away and replaced by a loyal communist party journalist,” said Reporters Without Borders.”While the crackdown and censorship of the media is being contested by veterans of the Chinese communist party, sanctions continue to bite. They confirm the determination of Hu Jintao to gag the press to prevent it from revealing the failings of the regime,” it said.The China Youth Daily announced on 16 February 2006 that its weekly supplement, Bing Dian would be back on the streets on 1st March. On the other hand, its editor, Li Datong, and its chief investigative journalist, Lu Yaogang, have been moved to the daily’s research centre, which according to several sources is a “way of sidelining retired people who deal with statistics and working conditions at the paper”.The authorities have named Chen Xiaochun to replace the editor, a faithful member of China’s Youth League. He will be responsible for the weekly’s editorial line and is to publish in the next issue an attack against the article, “Modernisation and history books” – related to the foreign occupation of China at the end of the 19th Century – which was used to justify the suspension of Bing Dian on 25 January.Reporters Without Borders was also able to confirm that the authorities have stepped up control of the discussion forum Jizhe De Jia (www.xici.net/b6775/board.asp), often used by China’s journalistic community. It has also been able to confirm that the words “your message has been deleted and your details registered” is sent to Internet-users when filters detect a word banned by the authorities. Users are blacklisted when they send several messages containing words such as “democracy” or “Bing Dian”.Elsewhere, on 8 February 2006, Chen Jieren, 34, editor of the Tuesday edition of the Beijing daily Gongli Shibao, has been demoted to simply sub-editor by the management. This decision follows a complaint from the Chinese government to the Ministry of Public Affairs in the charge of the daily, about an article that referred to translation errors in the English version of the official site of the Chinese Communist Party. “This article negatively impacts on the image of the Chinese government,” the government said.Chen Jieren had also in January published an investigation into corrupt officials who embezzled money earmarked as compensation for flood damage in central Shaanxi province. The daily had also published a portrait of President Hu Jintao, although only the official news agency Xinhua is authorised to do so.Journalist Wan Weimin, in charge of judicial affairs on Xinjiang Jingji Baoshe (Xinjiang Financial Journal), was dismissed by his management in January for having submitted an article about some 30 families living in the region’s forests because they had not been paid since 2002. The journalist took up their case after the local party head rejected their complaint.This official repression was strongly challenged in an open letter published on 14 February 2006 by veterans of the Chinese Communist Party. “This harsh censorship sows the seeds of a real disaster. How can one forget the bloody lessons that Chinese history has given us each time power is wielded through violence?, said the 13 signatories, including the former head of the Propaganda Department, Zhu Houze, a former editor on the People’s Daily, Hu Jiwei, as well as former personal secretary to Mao Zedong, Li Rui. They called for the reappearance of Bing Dian, which sells about 400,000 copies.

Plea Filed Before Supreme Court Seeking Declaration That The Constitutional Machinery In West Bengal Has Broken Down

first_imgTop StoriesPlea Filed Before Supreme Court Seeking Declaration That The Constitutional Machinery In West Bengal Has Broken Down Radhika Roy4 May 2021 5:18 AMShare This – xIndic Collective Trust has moved the Supreme Court seeking a declaration that the Constitutional machinery in the State of West Bengal has broken down within the meaning of Article 356 in the State.Settled by Advocate J. Sai Deepak and filed by Advocate Suvidutt M.S., the plea furthers seeks directions to the Central Government to deploy central protection forces, including armed forces, for the restoration of law and order in the State of West Bengal. It also prays for the constitution of a Special Investigation Team (SIT), headed by a retired Supreme Court Judge to look into the involvement of politicians, if any, in the targeted pogrom in the State. Additionally, the plea seeks issuance of directions for immediate arrest of and prosecution against all individuals involved and/or responsible for the commission of heinous offences in the aftermath of the 2021 Assembly elections, along with directions for setting up and/or establishing a special court to adjudicate and dispose of matters pertaining to the prosecution of political miscreants and/or any individuals involved in the commission of heinous offences. The plea, filed on behalf of Indic Collective Trust, submits that urgent relief is being sought in view of the widespread violence and disruption of law and order that has erupted in the aftermath of the elections, and the failure of the State machinery in protecting the life and liberty of its citizens. “…the reliefs are imperative in order to protect the life and property of the people of West Bengal under Article 21 of the Constitution of India which is being brazenly violated in pursuance of political vendetta and supporters of the All India Trinamool Congress”. Highlighting that the election-related violence began in the State after the declaration of the results on May 2, 2021, the plea states that members and supporters of opposing political parties “have been brutally murdered, with their houses and personal property being destroyed. There have been instances of heinous crimes including bombing of localities, murders, violations against the modesty of women, riotous looting, kidnapping, arson and destruction of public property”. “It has been categorically reported that till May 3, 2021 more than ten political activists were killed and numerous were beaten up and/or injured. These instances have instilled unimaginable fear in the minds of the citizens who will now be apprehensive of exercising their fundamental right to free speech and expression against the ruling party. Such fear would lead to the death of democracy”. It is further submitted that instances of gang rape and physical assault against women have also been reported, and that there has been deliberate inaction on behalf of the State Government, leading to the State turning into a “complete lawless zone”, thereby demonstrating that the violence is premeditated and targets a group of people who have exercised their voting rights against the ruling party. “The current state of affairs in West Bengal is so dangerous and wrought with internal disturbance that urgent interventions by this Hon’ble Court and deployment of central forces in the State is the need of the hour’. In light of the failure and neglect of the State administration and police authorities in West Bengal, the plea prays that it is imperative that the Top Court grants the urgent reliefs sought for by the Petitioner.TagsSupreme Court President’s Rule Article 356 West Bengal Next Storylast_img read more
