  • Spotty Rains and Cooler Temperatures Provide Some Relief for Indiana Crops

    first_img Spotty rains and cooler temperatures continued to provide relief to most of the dry areas of the State, according to Greg Matli, Indiana State Statistician for the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. Rain showers throughout the week were highly variable, leaving some areas soaked and others mostly dry. Statewide precipitation remains below average at 1.11 inches.Areas that did not receive the benefits from the rains at least experienced below average temperatures, helping to reduce crop stress. The statewide average temperature was 73.4 degrees, 5.3 degrees below normal.Corn silking was 6% complete in the North, 12% in Central, and 17% in the South. Corn rated in good to excellent condition was 75% in the North, 79% in Central, and 57% in the South. Farmers continued to utilize irrigation systems to aid with maintaining adequate soil moisture. Much of the corn crop that was affected by the previous week’s storms have recovered, however, heavy rains over the weekend in SW Indiana dropped up to 7 inches of rains in some fields.By region, soybeans blooming was 14% in the North, 20% in Central, and 15% in the South. Soybeans rated in good to excellent condition was 73% in the North, 79% in Central, and 57% in the South. Herbicide applications continued in the soybean fields, although controlling for marestail has been a challenge for growers. Plantings of early and double-cropped soybeans are finishing up.Nationally the condition of the U.S. corn crop remained unchanged at 75% good to excellent. Soybeans, however, declined slightly in condition.The weather was good for cutting and bailing hay again this week. Growth of hay and pasture fields have slowed down from the lack of significant rain, but remain above 70% in good to excellent condition. Livestock was reported to be in excellent condition. Other activities for the week included scouting fields for insects, certifying acreage with FSA, cleaning fencerows, applying fertilizer, working on harvest equipment, and mowing roadsides.Winter wheat was 27% harvested in the North, 65% in Central, and 93% in the South. Wheat harvested is well underway throughout the State. Downed wheat from the previous storm system has slowed harvest for some farmers. Otherwise, harvest is progressing far more quickly than last year and the five year average. Straw bailing is also progressing well.

  • Another adjournment in jailed radio reporter’s trial

    first_img Help by sharing this information February 2, 2017 Another adjournment in jailed radio reporter’s trial The latest hearing in Radio France Internationale reporter Ahmed Abba’s trial before a Yaoundé court lasted just three minutes today before the trial was adjourned yet again. May 31, 2021 Find out more May 19, 2021 Find out more CameroonAfrica Condemning abuses Judicial harassment As a result, Abba has no chance of being released until the next hearing, which has been set for 8 February. He has been held for more than 18 months, ever since his arrest in northern Cameroon, where he is RFI’s Hausa-language correspondent. Today’s hearing was quickly adjourned because, according to one of the court’s three military judges, the main judge, a civilian, was unable to attend because he was travelling. Abba’s trial, which began several months after his arrest, has already been adjourned many times for a range of reasons including the prosecution’s inability to produce witnesses, the court’s refusal to recognize the competence of experts and failure to adhere to scheduling. He is charged with failing to report terrorist activity to the authorities – a charge created by Cameroon’s 2014 terrorism law. “All those who have had access to the prosecution case file say there is nothing in it,” said Cléa Kah-Sriber, the head of the Africa desk at Reporters Without Borders (RSF). “Ahmed Abba’s detention for more than 18 months and the constant adjournments in his trial amount to psychological torture. We urge the authorities to release him at once and to finally examine the substance of the case against him, so that everyone can see that he is innocent.” Expert reports on evidence seized at Abba’s home were due to have been examined at today’s hearing. One of his lawyers, Clément Nakong, said the reports were compiled in unilateral manner by the prosecution. Abba was visibly in poor health when brought into court for today’s hearing, observers said. He reportedly spent yesterday in the infirmary of Yaoundé’s main prison after falling ill. Two other journalists and a university professor have been facing similar charges since October 2014 but they have been released pending the outcome of their trial.

In a new paper by former Freddie Mac CEO Don Layton, he discusses the implication that somehow much or even all of the tightening is illegitimate, a failure of government policy; that it should be largely if not completely avoidable with the right government actions; and that those actions should not require the kind of subsidies we are seeing for small business or specific industries, like the airlines.Layton’s new paper, “America’s Housing Finance System in the Pandemic: The Causes and Policy Implications of Credit Tightening,” examines how mortgages get made in 21st-century America, who sets the credit standards, why those standards are not fully immune to economic conditions.Layton reaches three conclusions:The mortgage credit tightening we are seeing is much less of an issue than encountered in the prior financial crisis.It is reasonable and appropriate that there should be tightening to a modest degree, even with the best possible government policy, as risks have gone up in the current economic environment.The tightening we are seeing is overwhelmingly a byproduct of the private sector, as it performs its major role in housing finance, behaving as one would expect in an economic downturn – and it would be even worse if government played a lesser role than it currently does.”However, also exacerbating the tightening, and probably in a significant way, is the unintended consequence of the generous mortgage forbearance program established by the CARES Act in late March,” said Layton. “This is because it applies not only to then-outstanding government-supported mortgage loans, for which the forbearance program was originally designed, but to newly-made ones as well. This is explored in some depth, and is the cause of significant friction between the mortgage industry and the government mortgage agencies of Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, and the Federal Housing Administration.” Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Understanding the Causes of Mortgage Credit Tighteninglast_img read more

  • Food in the news

    first_imgThe Food Standards Agency has been warning consumers not to eat certain peanut butter products from the US, due to a salmonella outbreak. There have so far been 474 reported cases across 43 different states. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a list of recalled products including various cookies and chocolate bars. The list includes Middlesex-based company Lärabar, which has recalled some of its own-brand Peanut Butter Cookie flavoured snack bars (51g) and Peanut Butter Cookie flavoured mini snack bars (21g).The Financial Times reported that, while upmarket chains like Starbucks were struggling in the US, with consistently falling sales, frugal consumer spending patterns were benefiting the likes of McDonald’s.
