Yet Another Public Hearing on the RFS

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Yet Another Public Hearing on the RFS By Gary Truitt – Jun 8, 2016 Yet Another Public Hearing on the RFS Facebook Twitter SHARE The EPA recently proposed its ethanol blending levels for 2017 which are again below what is called for in the RFS. Talent feels this is wrong, “We have the production capacity, the infrastructure to supply the ethanol called for in the RFS.” He said the RFS as a policy is working to reduce our nation’s dependence on imported oil and increase the use of renewable fuel and that is why the RFS is under attack. SHARE The EPA hearing starts at 9:00 a.m. Central Time Thursday, June 9, at the Sheraton Crown Center Hotel in Kansas City. Facebook Twitter Jim TalentWe have been here before: an EPA public hearing on the Renewable fuels Standard.  It will take place today in Kansas City, and the agriculture and ethanol industries are set to testify. Former Missouri Congressman Jim Talent, co-author the RFS, says opponents of renewable fuels are forcing this hearing, “What is happening here is that the EPA is getting push back from those who have misconceptions about renewable fuels along with pressure from big oil. We need to make sure there is plenty of testimony in support of the RFS.” Some of those scheduled to testify at the public hearing in support of renewable fuels include Pete Ricketts, Governor of Nebraska; Bob Dinneen, President and CEO of the Renewable Fuels Association; Emily Skor, CEO of Growth Energy; Chip Bowling, President of the National Corn Growers Association; Chris Soules, Iowa Farmer and Reality Television Star of “The Bachelor” & “Dancing with the Stars;” Annette Sweeney, Iowa Farmer and Former State Representative; Brian Sowers, Missouri Sportsman and Co-Host of Crappie Masters TV; and Richard Fordyce, Missouri Director of Agriculture.

That just means that there’s something else for me to do.” NBA playoffs 2019: Joel Embiid says 76ers ‘can win it all’ The Heat lost two of their last three games and missed the playoffs in Wade’s final season. He averaged 15 points, 4.0 rebounds and 4.2 assists in 72 appearances.Other former stars like Shaquille O’Neal, Charles Barkley and Paul Pierce have carved out roles for themselves as analysts after retiring, and Wade could be next.

He has served in the role before, but it’s unclear whether Wade is interested in pursuing broadcasting full time, the report says. “Everybody has their own vision, their own path of how or when they walk away from the game,” Wade said in February, via the Miami Herald. “But you can’t always control it. … I personally never wanted to walk away from the game when I absolutely had nothing left. I wanted to walk away when I felt it was time for me to walk away.

Absa in multi-currency card first for SA

first_img20 May 2013South African bank Absa has launched a multi-currency travel prepaid cash card through MasterCard, which is available in four currencies and is a first for the country and the continent.The bank will also be launching an Islamic Banking multi-currency passport soon, which is a first Sharia’h compliant and unique solution for clients travelling overseas.“Although there are other prepaid travel cards in South Africa, they can only carry one currency at a time,” Absa’s head of retail banking, Arrie Rautenbach, said in a statement last week.“The multi-currency cash passport card has the ability to allow customers to carry foreign exchange loaded with multiple currencies on one card.“When the card is used in the destination country, the system intelligently chooses the correct currency depending on the country the cardholder is in, as long as the currency is available – for example, if in the US the system will automatically debit the US dollar purse on the card,” he said.It is currently available in US and Australian dollars, British pounds and euros.“If an ATM withdrawal or point of sale transaction is made in a currency which is different to any of the available currencies on the card, or exceeds the relevant available currency balance on the card, the amount will be funded by converting the transaction amount onto the next available currency balance on the card,” he said.It also offers security features and emergency assistance if the card is lost, stolen or damaged. “It is chip and PIN enabled and it is not linked to your bank account, which means it is secure and convenient,” Rautenbach said.Customers whose cards are lost or stolen can phone a toll-free number and arrangements will be made to provide emergency cash up to the available balance on the card or courier a replacement card to the cardholder within 24 or 48 hours.“The multi-currency cash passport is convenient for frequent travellers and those who cross multiple borders on the same trip,” said global prepaid travel card management company Access Prepaid Worldwide’s managing director of Europe, Middle East and Africa, Alan King.Access Prepaid Worldwide is part of Mastercard.“Together with Absa, not only are we first to market in South Africa with this innovative product, but it’s a first for Africa,” he said.SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

17 days agoBig Sam: Man Utd could be RELEGATED

first_imgBig Sam: Man Utd could be RELEGATEDby Paul Vegas17 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer England boss Sam Allardyce says Manchester United could be RELEGATED this season.The former Bolton, Newcastle and England manager cited United’s side in 1974 that, against all expectations, went down to the second tier. With Solskjaer overseeing the club’s worst start in 30 years, Allardyce has used the side from 45 years ago as a warning to the current crop that they are not too good to be relegated. He told talkSPORT: “It isn’t beyond the realms of possibility that they could catastrophically fall into more problems if confidence goes and injuries stay like they are.”Players tend not to get as fit as quick as they would do when things are going well, that’s an absolute fact. There’s the disturbance of [Paul] Pogba wanting away and who will pop up next saying, ‘I see this going the wrong way, I want to leave?'”Manchester United do not have enough goals and you can see it becoming a struggle. Hopefully it’s not a struggle down the bottom end, but they’re certainly heading that way.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
