Commentary: Playing the Part of the Political Pawn, Yet Again

first_imgHome Commentary Commentary: Playing the Part of the Political Pawn, Yet Again Facebook Twitter After 3 years of listening to farmers and 3 days of floor debate, the U.S. House voted down a new Farm  Bill. The surprise defeat had nothing to do with what was in the bill, but had to do with political grandstanding by a group of 30 lawmakers known as the Freedom Caucus. This small, radical group has made immigration their one and only issue and will block any legislation until the House deals with their issue. House Speaker Paul Ryan has also engaged in some political grandstanding by forcing a Republican-only Farm Bill through committee, insuring he would have no Democratic support on the floor. A more bipartisan approach might have been able to neutralize the impact of the Freedom Caucus. By Gary Truitt – May 20, 2018 So now farmers face the prospect of no new NAFTA agreement, no new deal with China to avert a 25% tariff on U.S. soybeans, no action of making E-15 saleable  year round, no permanent fix to the WOTUS rule, and no new Farm Bill with a safety net to help producers manage risk. The current Farm Bill is set to expire on September 30. The defeat in the House makes it likely that deadline will not be reached. SHARE Today, as farmers face critical financial hardships, overreaching government regulations, and international trade disputes that take profits out of their pockets, limit their growth potential, and threaten their future, Washington is more interested in political posturing and social ideology than in taking  action to address the needs of American agriculture. Facebook Twittercenter_img Previous articleU.S. and China Trade War on Hold; China Pledges to Buy More U.S. ProductsNext articleIndiana Farm Leaders Support House Farm Bill Gary Truitt In the last election, we saw that rural America can have an impact on the political process. We need that kind of attitude now to insist that we are no longer ignored.By Gary Truitt SHARE The history of American agriculture is full of examples of the federal government taking action to threaten the financial livelihoods of farmers. For example, there was the tax of 1791. The so-called “whiskey tax” was the first tax imposed on a domestic product by the newly formed federal government and was intended to generate revenue for the war debt incurred during the Revolutionary War. The tax applied to all distilled spirits. Farmers of the western frontier were accustomed to distilling their surplus rye, barley, wheat, corn, or fermented grain mixtures into whiskey. These farmers resisted the tax.  President Washington sent in the army to force compliance with the tax. Fast forward to the next century and to the financial crisis of 1873. Falling crop prices, increases in railroad fees to ship crops, and Congress’s reduction of paper money in favor of gold and silver devastated farmers’ livelihoods and caused the birth of the Grange movement. Grangers gave their support to reform-minded groups such as the Greenback Party, the Populist Party, and, eventually, the Progressives. While the movement had many notable accomplishments, their two main objectives — better regulation of railroads and grain elevators — went largely unrealized.  And, let’s not forget the Carter grain embargo in 1980, which took a robust farm economy and turned it upside down — virtually overnight. Farmers had been promised an “on-time” delivery of the Farm Bill by GOP leadership. This in contrast to the last the last Farm Bill which was voted down by the House over the issue of food stamp reform. While there have been changes in the House and the White House in the past 4 years, that has not changed is the willingness to ignore the needs of agriculture and use farmers as political pawns.

All of the lighting in the ‘galleries’ was black light giving the artwork a glowing appearance.”Lindsey said the students were challenged to create art that would glow. So, not only did the students have to decide on subjects for their entries and mediums for their artwork but also materials to make the artwork glow in the dark.

Dozens of cars crash in snowy pileup amid threat of third nor’easter

first_imgWYXZ-TV(NEW YORK) — Dozens of vehicles piled up on a snowy Michigan road on Friday, sending three people to the hospital with minors injuries, authorities said.Early estimates showed 40 to 50 vehicles, including semitrailers, involved in the crash on I-94 in southern Michigan, according to Jackson County Emergency Management.Traffic on both the eastbound and westbound lanes stopped completely, and drivers were asked to find alternate routes, the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office said.A third nor’easter?Meanwhile, along the East Coast, residents are still digging out from the second nor’easter to hit the region in a week.There were still 435,000 customers without power in the Northeast on Friday morning, including 169,000 in Massachusetts and 141,000 in New Jersey.The latest computer models continue to be split on whether there is going to be a third nor’easter. Most models agree there is going to be a storm system moving through the South, with severe storms Saturday into Sunday along the Gulf Coast from Arkansas to Florida.These storms could produce damaging winds and some hail, and we cannot rule out tornadoes.As the storm moves east, the models split.American modelThe American model keeps the storm much larger and colder, showing a chance of snow from St. Louis to most of Kentucky into Nashville, Tennessee, and into the southern Appalachian Mountains on Sunday evening.The storm will redevelop Monday morning off the Mid-Atlantic coast and bring snow from Washington, D.C. to New York City.By Monday afternoon, the coastal low will strengthen — similar to the storm we just had — and move up the coast, bringing heavy snow for most of the I-95 corridor from Washington, D.C. to Boston, and into Maine.European modelThe European model continues to disagree Friday morning, showing a much weaker storm system along the Carolina coast on Monday with mostly rain during the day and evening.By Monday night, the storm system moves off the Carolina coast and brings no precipitation to the Northeast, according to the European model.Cold is comingRegardless of the track of the storm, both the European and American models agree that cold, February-like weather will continue into the middle of March.One of the coldest days will be next Wednesday, when wind chills will drop into the single digits and teens from the Midwest into the Northeast. Even from the Tennessee River Valley to the Carolinas, wind chills will be in the 20s Wednesday morning.  Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo bans stretch limos and issues new safety laws in wake of deadly crash

first_imgDrew Angerer/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced a slew of new safety reforms for limos and large passenger vehicles, outright banning stretch limos and adding a number of regulatory reforms.These reforms come three months after a limo crash in upstate New York led to the death of the driver and 19 passengers.That crash, which took place near the town of Schoharie, was the deadliest transportation crash in the U.S. since 2009.Cuomo released a statement about the October 2018 crash alongside the new reforms, calling it “a horrific tragedy that shocked this state to its very core.”“We are advancing reforms that will give aggressive new powers that will allow authorities to take dangerous vehicles off the roads without delay, hold unscrupulous businesses accountable and increase public safety in every corner of New York,” Cuomo said.The changes ban “remanufactured limousines,” which include stretch limos and stretch SUV-type vehicles, from operating in New York state.Drivers will have to have a special form of a commercial license that notes they are able to operate vehicles holding eight or more passengers.The reforms specify penalties for removing out-of-service stickers issued by Department of Transportation inspectors, creates an inspection fee, and allows the DOT and DMV to seize suspended license plates, among other regulatory changes.Some of the new reforms apply to vehicles beyond just stretch limos, as it prohibits U-turns for larger vehicles on all roads in the state — without specifying what qualifies as “larger vehicles” — and gets rid of the seatbelt exemption that had been in place for limos, buses, taxis and school buses.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Dead Wood for Wildlife

first_imgA second kind of woodpile for backyard wildlife is a slow-rot pile. Use slower-rotting woodslike oaks. Make an elevated support of stones, bricks or other nonrotting material. This keepstermites out and keeps the wood dryer. A brush pile is a third kind of woodpile for wildlife. It makes a refuge for rabbits and lizardsand a protected feeding area for certain ground-feeding birds. For a finishing touch, place a couple of fat logs or flat rocks on the ground next to the brushpile. You can lift these up from time to time to view the creatures that burrow under them. It’slike taking the roof off part of your little wildlife city to see what’s going on. Of course, these creatures will be just as well off in the upper, and not yet rotten, layers ofyour fast-rot pile. The advantage of a slow-rot pile is that it lasts longer. When a bird scratches in dead leaves looking for insects, it’s feeding in the detritus food chain.Dead things are part of Mother Nature’s bountiful provisions. We humans think of dead things as useless. But in the wild world, many dead things have justbegun to be valuable. This pile makes a refuge for lizards, protected crannies for deer mouse nests and a feedingplatform for chipmunks. Chipmunks like a lot of small crevices for quick escape. Use small-diameter branches to make brush piles. Place a few large logs or rocks on theground first to hold the branches above the ground. These delectable critters and their kin will attract predators like the brown snake and maybethe worm snake. Skinks may lay their eggs in the rotting wood. Kris Irwin found a slimysalamander under dead wood in his Athens backyard. The wood next to the ground will rot fastest. It will make a home for snails, slugs,wood-eating beetles and the larvae of predatory insects like the eyed elater, a click beetle withbig eye spots. Dead wood creates a kind of detritus food chain. Most people think of the grazing food chainas the foundation of life. Examples are the grass-cow-human or the oak leaf-caterpillar-warblerchains. Grazing food chains provide about half the food for the world’s organisms. Detritusfood chains provide the other half. This same ecological principle applies to logged forests, hayfields and other croplands.Harvested environments have somewhat fewer raw materials to work with. The idea is to makea little piece of your yard function like a natural forest floor. As the pile rots down into the earth, keep adding more wood to the top to keep your foodchain supplied with raw materials. Cleaning wood from a backyard carries away useful elements (like carbon, nitrogen, potassiumand phosphorus) that fuel detritus-based food chains. Dead wood is an example. You can use it in woodpiles for wildlife. I like a woodpile outside awindow under a tree. Some people think woodpiles for wildlife are messy. Let the fallen dead leaves accumulate on the ground. These will provide a foraging ground formoles, shrews and other secretive wildlife. For a fast-rot woodpile, just make a stack like a pile of firewood. Fast-rotting species includesweet gum, elm and pine. So what do they do? It seems so absurd — They take all their dead branches out to the curb. Then come the garbagemen. They take them away. Off to a faraway landfill, they say. There the stuff sits, for a lifetime or more, While they buy new fertilizer straight from the store. Those with the money say, “Hang the expense.” But Mother Nature thinks it doesn’t make sense.last_img read more

The Clear Case for Microgrid Development in Puerto Rico

first_imgThe Clear Case for Microgrid Development in Puerto Rico FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享MicroGridKnowledge.com:With the focus now on survival, most Puerto Ricans are probably not thinking about long-term energy planning. But “there is a huge opportunity, one or two years out, for building the grid in a more sustainable way,” said Cathy Kunkel, an energy analyst with the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis.Kunkel is deeply familiar with Puerto Rico’s power woes, which began long before the hurricane. Brought to the island two years ago to help an environmental organization, she has been focused on utility rate and resource planning issues.Rebuilding will not be easy, she warned. The utility was besieged by debt prior to the hurricane and has an old-school grid, heavily reliant on aging, oil-fired power plants.“It was a horrible lump for them that it was the worse hurricane since 1928. That would have done damage to the best of grids,” Kunkel said.Besides lacking capital, Puerto Rico’s electricity industry struggled under competing visions for the future even before the storm, according to Kunkel. PREPA wanted to retain a centralized grid, but switch power plants from oil to liquified natural gas (LNG). Since the island has no LNG, the utility sought permission to build a terminal so that it could import the fuel.Others like Kunkel advocated for more decentralization and renewable energy to strengthen the system.No decision had been made on the LNG terminal before Hurricane Maria. Kunkel pointed out that had it been built, chances are it may have been damaged by the storm.“Hurricane Maria shows the dangers of the path PREPA was trying to go down,” she said. “The frustrating thing to me is that it’s unreasonable to say they didn’t see this coming. It is a tropical island that was in the path of hurricanes and had a decrepit grid running on a shoe string. We’re seeing the consequences of that.”But now Puerto Rico could remake itself into “the poster child for distributed energy,” she said.“If you’re talking about building a grid from scratch, I don’t know why you wouldn’t rebuild it in a much more decentralized way,” she said. “We have the technology now to do it. You certainly can set it up in a way where hospitals and emergency centers would not go dark and would not be relying on diesel fuel in an emergency. Generators are good backup, but only when they do not run out of fuel.”Microgrids typically have more than one form of generation. On a sunny island, that’s likely to include solar and batteries, along with backup generators.More: The Sky Fell in Puerto Rico. The Microgrid Argument is not Chicken Littlelast_img read more

The 2018 Top Adventure College: Lees-McRae College

first_imgWant to see them win again? Vote for 2019 HERE.Nestled in the mountains of Banner Elk, N.C., Lees-McRae College is a hub for outdoor adventure and recreation for its students and staff.Lees-McRae College is officially the first “small school,” with an undergrad of fewer than 5,000 people, to claim the title of Top Adventure College. We reached out to give them the news and they couldn’t have been more excited. It was a huge victory over the giant Liberty University.Before we were able to chat with the Lees-McRae team, they had to finish their graduation ceremonies. Once the Bobcats bid farewell to their 2018 graduates, we caught up with them to chat about the victory and what makes them, in their eyes, the Top Adventure College. Katie Wall is the Assistant Professor of Outdoor Recreation Management, and Bailey Stewart is the Assistant Director of Admissions. Jack Perry is a student at Lees-McRae.The Bobcats really pulled out all the stops this year. You created videos, rallied students, and saturated social media. How does it feel to be the first ever small college to claim TAC?Katie Wall: We are unbelievably excited, proud, and honored.  It was a true community effort, and we are so thankful to everyone for their continued excitement and determination.  We know that we are a small college, but we have big adventures and big dreams. We are so happy that all the wonderful things that are happening at Lees-McRae are being highlighted.Bailey Stewart: Amazing. We wanted this title and to see the school come together to help make it happen brought me so much joy. In the midst of a very busy season at the College, students, faculty, staff, friends, family, and more came together to show our followers that we deserve to be the Top Adventure College. To see our future Bobcats get excited and share with their families and friends, “hey, my future school could win the Top Adventure College, go vote!” was unbelievable.In your eyes, what makes Lees-McRae College the Top Adventure College?Katie Wall: To me, Lees-McRae is a Top Adventure College not simply because of its incredible views and ways to enjoy outside, but because of the passion of the students, faculty, and staff as well as support from our administration, President Dr. Barry M. Buxton and our President-elect Dr. Herbert L. King, Jr. Our location is like no other. It allows us to have meaningful and beneficial partnerships with local outdoor companies including Beech Mountain Resort, Grandfather Mountain, and Highland Outfitters.Bailey Stewart: We are the gem of the High Country. You look out your residence hall and see frosty Beech Mountain. Or you walk through campus to stumble upon the Elk River that runs through campus and gives us this breathtaking waterfall. Or, you drive less than ten minutes down the road and you’re cruising down the Blue Ridge Parkway. Everywhere you look there is an outdoor adventure waiting for you. That is what makes us the Top Adventure College. We have students on campus that have a true passion for the outdoors. With their help, they make the campus an oasis for those outdoor lovers.Jack Perry: For me, being outside is stepping right out the door. You don’t have to drive half an hour to get there, you are basically already in the wilderness. Our mountain bike trails are amazing and there are a few fun waterfalls that are right next to campus. We also have Hawksbill and the Profile Trail within 15 minutes of campus, which is great on those days when you want to go for a hike.Located in Banner Elk, you’re surrounded by national forests and state parks, what is it about the area that cultivates such an adventurous and outdoorsy lifestyle at Lees-McRae?Katie Wall: You are surrounded by the mountains every day as you drive to campus, walk to class, or take your lunch break. It is hard not to fall in love with Banner Elk with all of this inspiration around you. There is also a long-standing history and tradition of outdoor adventure and environmental appreciation here at Lees-McRae, thanks to strong women like Outdoor Recreation Management adjunct instructor Dee Thomas (featured in your Feb 2018 Edition, Women are Forces of Nature) and Director of the May Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, Nina Fischesser.Bailey Stewart: I have seen many mountains, but there is something about the Blue Ridge Mountains that always amazes me—and has always amazed our students. With these parks and outdoor adventures at your fingertips, it encourages our students to take advantage of it. There is such a big value in spending time outside, and we make it easy here! The students who may have never hiked before can’t contain themselves when they see the mountains and think, “I want to climb to the top!”“For the four-year journey of college, Lees-McRae provides so many options to our young people, with the close proximity of the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Appalachian Trail, not to mention the trails, waterfalls, campsites, ski slopes, hiking and biking trails within minutes of our residence halls. It provides them a great outdoor student experience.”– Craig McPhail, Vice President of Athletics and Club SportsWhat outdoor program is Lees-McRae particularly proud of?Katie Wall: We are particularly proud of our outdoor certification program and our expeditions. Students, faculty, staff, and the community can benefit from NOLS Wilderness Medicine, Leave No Trace Outdoor Ethics, League of American Bicyclists certifications, and come soon the North Carolina Environment Education Certification.  Our new expedition program will offer students from all academic disciplines to engage in trips, including Expedition Into the Wild, a historical and literary exploration of the Western National Parks; Italy Adventure Wellness and Ancient Medicine, a biology, health, and wellness program combined with a wide variety of Italian outdoor adventures; and Hawaii Water Sports and the Environment, an in-depth ocean and coastal skill development program with a focus on environmental ethics.I would also like to highlight our Outdoor Recreation Management’s annual Outdoor Legends event that brings together individuals who have contributed significantly to the High Country outdoors through education, service, scholarship, or development. They have made a lifelong dedication to sharing their passion and improving the outdoor community for all. This event allows these Legends the opportunity to share their stories and career success with students, and network with the community. It is a powerful, meaningful, and impactful event.Bailey Stewart: We have much pride in one of our newest programs, Outdoor Recreation Management. With being one of the only programs of its kind under a School of Business, it leads and encourages students to go after that outdoor dream they have. The students learn practical knowledge about the outdoors that will prepare them to be successful in the outdoor realm.What would you like the outdoor enthusiast student considering Lees-McRae to know?Katie Wall: If you’re interested in a career in outdoor recreation, environmental education, cycling, wildlife biology, wildlife rehabilitation and want to live in a place that values community, the outdoors, and fun than Lees-McRae College might be just the place you’re looking for.  As we like to say, we are small but we are mighty.Bailey Stewart: If you are an outdoor lover, there is no better place than to study in the High Country. You will have the opportunity to explore your passion for the outdoors while gaining an education that will set you up to pursue your dreams. There is nothing better than that!Jack Perry: I would tell them we have many great courses that they can take and programs they can become involved in. Whatever tickles your fancy, we have hiking, biking, whitewater rafting, Frisbee golf course, and fly-fishing…just to name a few.To get a better look at Lees-McRae College, be sure to check out their website.
