Vilsack Pushes Trade, Ignores Farm Bill

first_imgIn his remarks at Classic, Vilsack did not make reference to efforts in Congress to re-open the Farm Bill or recommendations by the Obama administration to make cuts in federal crop insurance. He voiced support for the RFS, GMOs, and conservation, but failed to call for support of crop insurance or protecting current farm programs. Vilsack Pushes Trade, Ignores Farm Bill Following the Secretary’s speech, the organizations that organized Classic released a statement expressing concern about Vilsack’s omission. “On behalf of our farmer members, we are united in our support for the comprehensive farm bill passed by Congress just over one year ago. We are keenly aware of the cuts just made to mandatory spending across many titles and strongly oppose any changes or cuts to farm bill programs, many of which are just now being implemented.” The statement also noted the current downturn in farm prices and lower profits for American farmers. The groups called on Congress to stand up for American agriculture, “Our family farmers work hard each season to provide a safe and abundant supply of food, feed, fuel, and fiber for the world. The best way for Congress to support our work is to not stand in the way of a law that works and has great promise for rural America.” Facebook Twitter SHARE By Gary Truitt – Feb 28, 2015 Vilsack Pushes Trade, Ignores Farm Bill He chided the farmer groups for not being as aggressive on this issue as they had been on the Farm Bill. He said Congress needs to hear from farmers about the importance of this issue. Chris Novak, CEO of the National Corn Growers Association, told HAT corn growers would make TPA a higher priority in the future, “We heard the Secretary’s message and will make our support of TPA known to Congress.”center_img Facebook Twitter SHARE During his keynote speech to the opening General Session of Commodity Classic on Friday, Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack called on corn, soybean, wheat, and sorghum farmers to “get engaged” on the issue of trade promotion authority, TPA. He warned that a lack of TPA would make trade agreements like the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) impossible to negotiate and that the lack of such an agreement would have a devastating impact on US agricultural trade.  He added that lack of a multinational agreement like TPP would allow China to dictate trade in Asia and keep US farmers out of this vital and growing market. Before his speech to the Commodity Classic, Vilsack had joined with a bipartisan group of former U.S. Agriculture Secretaries, representing all past Administrations from those of President Jimmy Carter to President George W. Bush, to issue an open letter urging Congress to pass Trade Promotion Authority. The former secretaries note that boosting trade and exports is highly beneficial to America’s agriculture economy and that Trade Promotion Authority, which has been given to all previous presidents since Gerald Ford, is critical for successfully negotiating new trade partnerships that boost exports and create jobs. Congress may begin consideration of legislation to grant President Obama Trade Promotion Authority as early as this week.

The Gamble House is the most complete and best-preserved example of American Arts and Crafts style architecture. The house and furnishings were designed by famed architects Charles and Henry Greene in 1908 for David and Mary Gamble of the Procter & Gamble Company. The house, designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1978, is owned by the City of Pasadena and operated by the University of Southern California School of Architecture. The Gamble House is open for public, docent-led tours and for specialty tours and programs.On January 14, 1966, members of the Gamble family, the City of Pasadena, and the University of Southern California signed a formal gift agreement, and in September of that year the doors of the Gamble House were opened to the public. In the half century since then, The Gamble House has become one of the most beloved premier historic sites in America.A series of celebratory anniversary events will take place throughout September 2016 including an invitation only dinner for major donors; a fundraising reception to kick-off a new endowment campaign to raise funds to continue to protect the Gamble family’s generous legacy gift to the public with another decade of conscientious preservation; a reception to recognize the contributions of Gamble House docents through the years; an Alumni Day Open House for former Gamble House Scholars in Residence and the USC School of Architecture; and a 50th Anniversary public celebration on Sunday, September 25, with self-paced tours and family-friendly activities and entertainment.Visitors continue to visit, week in and week out, from around the world to marvel at the beauty imbedded in every square foot of The Gamble House. They come to experience what Charles Greene called “architecture as a fine art.” Hailed by the American Institute of Architects as “formulators of a new and native architecture,” Charles Sumner Greene (1868–1957) and Henry Mather Greene (1870–1954) designed houses and furnishings a century ago that established a new paradigm for the art of architecture in the United States. Drawing on the skills of outstanding craftsmen, as well as their own polytechnic training, formal architectural education, and natural artistic sensibilities, Greene and Greene created legendary living environments that were beautiful, functional and modern.The flowering of the Greenes’ careers together was brief and typically benefited a discriminating and wealthy clientele. They produced their most characteristic work between 1906 and 1914, primarily in and around Pasadena. Of their fully coordinated houses with interior furnishings, only the Gamble House survives intact.For more information on the Gamble House and their 50th Anniversary please visit www.gamblehouse.org.

Pre-fabs to help ease hospital bed crisis

She worked as a staff journalist with the Irish Press and Evening Press before moving to Clare. She has worked as a freelance for all of the national newspaper titles and a staff journalist in Limerick, helping to launch the Limerick edition of The Evening Echo. Bernie was involved in the launch of The Clare People where she was responsible for business and industry news. 53 patients waiting for beds at UHL Kieran O’Donnell TDA NEW quick-build unit that would provide an additional 50 beds at University Hospital Limerick (UHL) could be up and running in less than a year.Limerick Fine Gael Senator Kieran O’Donnell told the Limerick Post that UHL would be a priority to get funding for a modular unit which would provide an interim solution while plans go ahead for a permanent 96-bed unit for the hospital.The 96 bed unit is likely to be included in the Government’s national plan to be revealed this Friday, but even with funding ring-fenced, it will take more than three years before a single patient can be treated there.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Meanwhile, a call has gone out from Government for hospitals to apply for funding for quick-build modular units which would supply desperately needed bed-space and Senator O’Donnell believes Limerick will be a priority for one of these units.“I’ve put it to the Minister that Limerick must be considered as a priority for a modular build. The acute 96 bed unit will get funding under the capital programme but we must have an interim solution”.He said he has been in discussions with hospital management and he understands that there is room on the hospital grounds for such a unit.“I would envisage that it would supply 50 beds and supply them quickly. The key to these units is the speed of the build. The hospital can get on with pre-planning and the council can move along with the process.“I would hope the decision to provide a unit for Limerick will be taken over the next couple of months and that the beds will be in place in the next year”.Minister Simon Harris was not being drawn on the provision of the 96 bed unit when he visited Limerick on Monday to open a new Primary Care Centre in the city, but said that he was “open to discussing interim measures,” for Limerick.Senator O’Donnell predicted that the funding to move the Ennis Road Maternity hospital to co-locate with UHL will also be provided for when the National Plan is unveiled on Friday.He was speaking after a week in which numbers on trolleys in UHL rose to 62 at one stage, according to figures supplied by the Irish Nurse and Midwives Organisation.“Overcrowding is a legacy issue and Limerick must be prioritised for interim measures to tackle this crisis,” Senator O’Donnell said.There was no-one available from UHL to comment on the hospital’s view on the provision of a modular unit at time of going to press.More about health here.

Twitter By admin – March 16, 2018 Local News National event caps off med student studies WhatsApp Previous articleMan charged with assaulting ex-wife, sisterNext articleTraffic stop leads to pursuit, narcotics charges admin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR OC employee of the year always learning Michael Callaway, regional assistant dean of the Office of Medical Education, said these are fourth-year students who are near the end of their curriculum. They will receive their diplomas in May at the graduation ceremony.“That said, most of these students are within a single rotation of finishing their training,” Callaway said.He added that the students were matched at facilities locally and nationwide.“Some of them wound up a little farther down their list than they had hoped. Some students are obviously disappointed. Basically, they still have the opportunity to finish their training, which is the good news. The bad news is it might not have been where they had hoped,” Callaway said.“Most of them will very quickly adapt and be just fine,” he added.He said this was a good group of students with about six who want to pursue psychiatry. Callaway added that is a testament to the work of psychiatrist Dr. Bobby Jain and the new psychiatry residency program.Jarrod Tunnell of Las Cruces, N.M., is one who will pursue psychiatry. He was matched to UT Southwestern in Dallas.He decided on Texas Tech in Odessa after bonding with a secretary during a chat about green chili. She was from Las Cruces, as well, Tunnell said.Texas Tech also offered a combined medical doctor/master of business administration degree that can be finished in four years. Tunnell said the business degree will be useful if he wants to go into something administrative later or into private practice.“I thought the faculty were great, very friendly, a good culture. I was excited when I got accepted and it’s been good,” Tunnell said.He added that he thought his training in Odessa was great.“We have wonderful faculty since we’re here and not in Lubbock. We get more one-on-one training, which has been excellent. The community’s very supportive for psychiatry, especially (because) they just opened a residency program here. But the residency director he’s just very supportive of student learning and just an excellent educator. He did a wonderful job of teaching us and preparing us. I had a great experience and learned a lot. I got to make some close relationships with the coordinators and directors,” Tunnell said.Alice Fa is pursuing obstetrics and gynecology and matched to Texas Tech in Odessa and will be associated with Medical Center Hospital and Midland Memorial Hospital.“It’s been a great program. I obviously came through third year here and had great teachers and a great residency, great teaching experiences and a wonderful patient population. And they have a lot of opportunities for training,” Fa said.Mary Grady, who is pursuing psychiatry, was matched to Maine Medical Center in Portland, Maine. She is from Oswego, N.Y., in Upstate New York.“I was very excited about the match. I really wanted to go to Maine. I did an away rotation there and I loved it. It’s closer to my family, which is important to me but I love the program here, as well. I’ve been in Texas since I’ve been in high school. I’ve really loved what Texas can provide and the opportunities. I’ll be sad to leave it behind. I loved the teachers here and the attending and the hospitals here were great,” Grady said.Brenda Chavez from Gatesville is going for family medicine. She was matched with Texas Tech Health Sciences Center in Lubbock.“I’m very happy,” Chavez said. “It was actually my first choice.” Alice Fa will do her residency at Medical Center Hospital and Midland Memorial Hospital.

2021 Equi-Trek Bramham International Horse Trials Cancelled

first_img Email* The organizers of the 2021 Bramham International Horse Trials have issued a statement about its cancellation:“It is with great regret that the organising team behind the Equi-Trek Bramham International Horse Trials announces that his year’s fixture, 10 – 13 June, is cancelled. Whilst the government’s positive road map to exit lockdown, successful vaccine roll-out programme and falling case numbers provided some optimism that the event could run, the proposed conditions are impossible to comply with on the Bramham site, even assuming that the Government’s roadmap timetable does not slip.Event Director Nick Pritchard commented; “We’ve explored every avenue possible to keep Bramham 2021 in the calendar. However, the health, safety and welfare of all who are involved in the Event, or come to watch it, is our number one priority and we just can’t guarantee that within the government’s rules.”“Due to the nature and scale of the Event, it is impossible to enforce social distancing reasonably. The extent of the site makes it unfeasible to completely control public access. Sadly, a park isn’t the same as a stadium and whilst there’s plenty of space, we can’t guarantee social distancing in busy areas. We’re a 500-acre park with several footpaths crossing the estate and with spectator numbers limited to 4,000, we can’t be confident on keeping to this.“The team and I are deeply disappointed to admit defeat, despite our best efforts. Having missed last year and this being an Olympic year, when Bramham would have been important to many nations for team selection, we wanted to put on a memorable competition. Sadly we can’t guarantee a COVID-secure show ground and feel it would be irresponsible to run.”The team at Bramham would like to thank our loyal sponsors and volunteers, all owners, riders and grooms, tradestands, contractors and spectators for their continued support, which has made this decision all the more difficult. We look forward to welcoming you back to Bramham in 2022.” Tags: eventing, Covid, Bramham International Horse Trials, More from News:MARS Bromont CCI Announces Requirements For US-Based RidersThe first set of requirements to allow American athletes and support teams to enter Canada for the June 2-6 competition have been released.Canadian Eventer Jessica Phoenix Reaches the 100 CCI4*-S MarkPhoenix achieved the milestone while riding Pavarotti at the inaugural 2021 CCI4*-S at the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event.Tribunal Satisfied That Kocher Made Prolonged Use of Electric SpursAs well as horse abuse, the US rider is found to have brought the sport into disrepute and committed criminal acts under Swiss law.Washington International Horse Show Returns to TryonTIEC will again provide the venue for the WIHS Oct. 26-31 with a full schedule of hunter, jumper and equitation classes.
