Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter On this day in history: January 8th, 1790On this day in 1790, President George Washington delivers the first State of the Union address to the assembled Congress in New York City.Washington began by congratulating the nation on the present favorable prospects of public affairs, most notable of which was North Carolina’s recent decision to join the federal republic. North Carolina had rejected the Constitution in July 1788 because it lacked a bill of rights. Under the terms of the Constitution, the new government acceded to power after only 11 of the 13 states accepted the document. By the time North Carolina ratified in November 1789, the first Congress had met, written the Bill of Rights and dispatched them for review by the states. When Washington spoke in January, it seemed likely the people of the United States would stand behind Washington’s government and enjoy the concord, peace, and plenty he saw as symbols of the nation’s good fortune.Washington’s address gave a brief, but excellent, outline of his administration’s policies as designed by Alexander Hamilton. The former commander in chief of the Continental Army argued in favor of securing the common defence [sic], as he believed preparedness for war to be one of the most effectual means of preserving peace. Washington’s guarded language allowed him to hint at his support for the controversial idea of creating a standing army without making an overt request.The most basic functions of day-to-day governing had yet to be organized, and Washington charged Congress with creating a competent fund designated for defraying the expenses incident to the conduct of our foreign affairs, a uniform rule of naturalization, and Uniformity in the Currency, Weights and Measures of the United States.After covering the clearly federal issues of national defense and foreign affairs, Washington urged federal influence over domestic issues as well. The strongly Hamilton-influenced administration desired money for and some measure of control over Agriculture, Commerce and Manufactures as well as Science and Literature. These national goals required a Federal Post-Office and Post-Roads and a means of public education, which the president justified as a means to secure the Constitution, by educating future public servants in the republican principles of representative government.

They did so many horrid “treatments” trying to save him, and practically drained him of his blood…..and worked over him, while he laid in the bed and couldn’t hardly breathe, and argued with each other about how best to treat him…..George had so many health problems. One article I read, said he was the considered ” the sickest of our presidents” (well, up to now) that is…..LOL…..and he was the only US president to serve as president, while at the same time fighting in combat, and there will never be another person in our country, that will rank higher than his highest military honor ranking….ever!

Viola Gregg LiuzzoIn an era when many Civil Rights icons are unknown to youth, even those in the struggle, people are still working to keep alive the legacy of those who gave everything for justice.April 11 would have been the 90th birthday of Detroit Civil Rights martyr Viola Gregg Liuzzo. A mother of five and a nursing student at Wayne State University, Liuzzo heeded the call of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to organize in Selma, Ala., following the “Bloody Sunday” voting rights march.Liuzzo was only in Selma for a matter of days when the Ku Klux Klan caught up with her. On March 25, 1965, Liuzzo, who was white, and Leroy Moton, a 19-year-old African American, were shuttling people in and out of Selma when a car full of Klan members maneuvered to drive them off the road. Shooting from their car, the racists hit Liuzzo twice in the head, killing her instantly. Moton was wounded and escaped the attackers.One of the Klansmen involved in the terrorist attack was an FBI informant. The FBI then led a vicious smear campaign against Liuzzo and her family. Crosses were burned in front of her family’s home in Detroit.On April 10 this year, Wayne State University granted its first-ever posthumous degree to Liuzzo, an honorary juris (law) doctorate. WSU also placed a plaque on the campus in her memory and created a scholarship in her name at the School of Nursing. A park named after Liuzzo has been falling into disrepair for years, but a grassroots effort for its revitalization is now underway. Other events around the city also marked Liuzzo’s birthday and contributions to the struggle.Viola Liuzzo and other martyrs for justice will continue to inspire generations of revolutionary youth. Liuzzo’s courage will be forever ingrained in Detroit’s consciousness.Joe Mchahwar is a Detroit organizer with the revolutionary youth group FIST (Fight Imperialism, Stand Together).FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
SHARE NCGA Works to Keep Decision Makers Up to Speed on Corn Ethanol SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter The National Corn Growers Association’s Director of Biofuels recently took to the airwaves to spread the good news about corn ethanol. Dr. Pam Keck talked about a new report released from researchers in the Netherlands that shows current models assessing the impact of crops grown for biofuel production on land use to not accurately reflect current production and land use realities. According to Keck – the results of the study are great news and have important implications for those interested in improving the way in which policymakers determine the true environmental benefit of biofuels. For the first time ever – Keck says this study actually looked at the amount of global land use used for biofuel production instead of relying on the number used by others. They found farmers have made great strides in producing more crops using fewer resources. Over the last decade – according to the researchers – the increases in production agriculture have far outweighed any changes that have happened in the use of agricultural land for biofuels. In fact – Keck says they found that twice as much agricultural land has been used for urbanization – particularly in China and the European Union. Much more agricultural land has actually gone to other uses rather than for the production of biofuels. Keck explains that this finding is important because the findings used to determine the indirect land use score for biofuels are used to create public policy and the amount of ethanol that comes from corn that can go toward policy goals is limited – in part – because of this indirect land use score.Keck says NCGA works tirelessly to promote ethanol by showing how the newest scientific evidence is relevant to the decisions made about America’s national energy policies. According to Keck – NCGA keeps close track of the data coming out that relates to the determination of ethanol’s greenhouse gas score. This data is then taken to the people charged with setting biofuel policies – such as people at the Environmental Protection Agency and the California Air Resources Board. NCGA advocate for changes that would ensure the most accurate information possible is put into the models that are used when making decisions.Source: NAFB News service Home Energy NCGA Works to Keep Decision Makers Up to Speed on Corn Ethanol Previous articleFarmers and Ranchers Frustrated with CongressNext articleTough to Predict 2013 Indiana Fall Weather Conditions Gary Truitt By Gary Truitt – Oct 1, 2013
Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Jul 7, 2014 Planning Ahead to Manage Corn Rootworm SHARE SHARE Home News Feed Planning Ahead to Manage Corn Rootworm The best way to control future corn rootworm populations is to plan ahead – according to DuPont Pioneer entomologists. Entomologist Clint Pilcher says growers need a long-term plan to help reduce the risk of overwhelming corn rootworm populations and effectively manage the pest. Management goals should include reducing the population to maintain trait performance – according to Pilcher – instead of attempting to eradicate the pest. He suggests a set of best management practice strategies based on breaking the pest’s life cycle, managing pest populations and protecting yield potential with a hybrid including a Bt-trait. Pilcher says this allows growers to have more options available for CRW control. Growers should avoid using all CRW control options at once – according to Pilcher – and be aware of the pressure in their fields. He encourages growers to scout their continuous corn fields when silking begins and select higher-risk fields based on cropping history, trait use and planting times.

The report noted that from 2009 to 2012, Fannie Mae collected no late fees. While the company said the cost of implementing a fee collection program was too expensive, the inspector general argued Fannie Mae never considered potential benefits. The OIG said the cost of the estimated $5.4 million implementation could have easily been recouped by fees collected from the program.Freddie Mac was criticized by the OIG for a different problem. The report estimated the company lost $284 million in revenue from inconsistent fee collection. The inspector said lost revenue is unlikely to be collected, and ultimately hurts taxpayers. The OIG believes better reporting on assessed but uncollected fees will help stop lost revenue in the future.According to a report from Bloomberg, Bank of America is expected to cut 450 mortgage jobs from the company’s West Coast Offices. The bank reduced staff after new loan production fell short of internal forecasts. CFO Bruce Thompson cited a drop of 49% in retail originations to $11.6 billion in the fourth quarter. This is the fourth time in a year that Bank of America has reduced personnel. The firm cut 3000 employees in the last quarter of 2013.

Do you recollect the captain of the ship? Captain Smith. When the ship runs into rough weather, what does the captain have to do?” Justice Dipankar Datta rhetorically asked. “He should be the last one to leave. I am the captain of the ship here. First comes society, then my judiciary and last me,” the CJ added. Advocate Yashodeep Deshmukh was quick to respond that politicians were also Captains of their ships but they were getting vaccinated. He requested the court to issue a notice or at least direct the State to consider the representation made to declare members of the legal fraternity as frontline workers. He clarified that he had no grievance against those who are getting it. “Not every doctor was facing the risk of the virus. Some kept their clinics closed for months. But the State included them because it is a necessity.” He added that there were lawyers from legal aid services, who worked tirelessly for the release of undertrials and to decongest prisons. “The magistrates, public prosecutors who interact with police officers and undertrials, aren’t they entitled to vaccination?” Deshmukh asked. “There is a risk, no doubt. We have to be cautious and careful. But you are asking for a writ of mandamus for the judiciary from the judiciary,” Justice Dutta said. Additional Solicitor General Anil Singh then informed the court that Bharat Biotech has already filed an application seeking transfer of all these matters to the Supreme Court. The Court said they were not inclined to intervene unless there was something amiss in the policy, but the petitioner had mentioned “access to justice.” However, the division bench of Justices Dipankar Datta and GS Kulkarni sought to know what was the eligibility criteria for getting a Covid vaccine as it is very easy to get a doctor’s prescription these days. “So that the noble object is not exploited by scheming people.” The ASG said he would come back with instructions. The matter was then adjourned to March 17. The hearing began with the court asking the petitioner why such a PIL was not filed for the staff of private organizations and dabbawallas. “That way everyone is a frontline worker,” CJ Datta said. He said that the executive has done a fantastic job and some things should be left to its wisdom. Background The PIL seeking to declare members of the legal fraternity as frontline workers and to provide them with a vaccine for the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) coronavirus on a priority basis was filed by two advocates from Raigad district in Maharashtra, Vaishnavi Gholave and Yogesh Morbale. It states that not just judicial officers, but advocates and their staff must be included in the list of frontline workers. “Judiciary is declared as one of the essential pillars of democracy. The members who are part of this pillar include the Judges, court staff, advocates and their clerks. Hence they are equally important along with the other staff,” the petition reads.Next Story
