first_img Wales U20 SquadWales U20 team v New Zealand (Stadio Mario Battaglini, Rovigo, Tuesday 14 June, 5.10pm UK time, Live on S4C)The Wales Under 20 coaching team has made seven changes and two positional for their second Pool match of the IRB Junior World Championship against New Zealand tomorrow (Tuesday).Wales beat Argentina 34-8 in convincing fashion on Friday, but head coach Richard Webster says it was a case of horses for courses when it came to selection against the No 1 seeds.Ospreys and Bridgend lock Lloyd Peers will captain the side, replacing squad captain Macauley Cook in the starting line-up. Elsewhere in the pack, WillGriff John replaces Will Taylor at tight head, while fit-again Thomas Young takes his place on the openside flank, alongside Ed Siggery and Owen Sheppeard who starts ahead of Ben Thomas at No 8.Behind the scrum there is a new half-back pairing, with Blues and Pontypridd scrum half Lewis Jones getting the nod over Jonathan Evans, and Steve Shingler moving from full back to outside half in place of Matthew Morgan.The centre partnership is unchanged, while there will be a Scarlets academy pair on the wings, with Dale Ford making his Wales Under 20 debut and Iolo Evans making his first start after coming on against Argentina.Liam Williams moves from wing to full back.

(Photo by Dino Panato/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Webster said: “We were pleased with the result against Argentina, it’s great to be able to have that platform to build on, but there were a number of areas we need to improve on if we are to do well against New Zealand.“We are lucky that due to the fierce competition within the camp for every position, this side is every bit as strong as the starting line-up selected against Argentina. Every player selected for tomorrow’s game fully deserves his chance, while those on the bench will also be desperate to show what they can do against the world champions if they get the opportunity.“Some areas of our game worked well against Argentina, including our defence, and some of our attacking play, but I felt that we got a bit lazy once we’d scored a few tries. It’s going to be a different proposition against New Zealand and we will have to make a step up in intensity and concentration.“Lloyd Peers is one of the true leaders within the squad, giving him the captain’s armband for this game is a natural progression for him.”Wales team v New Zealand: Liam Williams (Llanelli); Iolo Evans (Scarlets / Llanelli) Owen Williams (Blues / Cardiff), Lewis Robling (Dragons / Newport), Dale Ford (Scarlets / Llanelli); Steve Shingler (London Irish), Lewis Jones (Blues / Pontypridd); Rhodri Jones (Scarlets / Llanelli), Kirby Myhill (Scarlets / Llanelli), WillGriff John (Blues/ Pontypridd), Lloyd Peers (capt, Ospreys/ Bridgend), Cory Hill (Blues / Pontypridd), Edward Siggery (Pontypridd), Thomas Young (Blues / Cardiff), Owen Sheppeard (Blues / Pontypridd).

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Impact of China’s Bird Flu Outbreak on U.S. Grains Impact of China’s Bird Flu Outbreak on U.S. Grains SHARE SHARE Previous articleAmerican Ethanol Races into Spotlight this Weekend in KansasNext articleStudy Shows Pork Producers Reducing Carbon Footprint Andy Eubank According to the U.S. Grains Council – the impact of the bird flu outbreak in China on poultry production and feed demand is uncertain. As live bird markets close – the Council says the reduction of poultry inventories will reduce feed consumption in the industry. But if consumers switch to pork – the losses in the poultry sector will be offset – reducing the net effect on feed demand. U.S. Grains Council Director in China Bryan Lohmar says any substitution of pork for poultry will dampen the negative effect of reduced poultry production on feed demand because hogs are less efficient converters of feed to meat and use a higher proportion of energy feeds like corn. If consumers switch to fish – Lohmar says soybean demand will likely increase some.The Grains Council says there are no confirmed reports – but there are suggestions people may be substituting pork for poultry. There is also speculation consumers are avoiding meat in general. The Council notes that could have more negative implications for corn feed demand. Still – fish prices are rising – indicating consumers may be substituting fish rather than pork for poultry.The ultimate effect on feed demand – according to the Grains Council – will depend on the duration and geographical spread of the outbreak. Crunching numbers based on the location of the cases so far – the U.S. Grains Council found a little more than one-percent reduction in poultry production. But if the virus continues for another month or two and spreads around the country – the effect would be more significant. The Council notes China produces around 17-million metric tons of poultry meat – so a five-percent reduction is 850-thousand metric tons of meat. A five-percent reduction in meat production would result in about 2.25-million tons (88.5-million bushels) reduction in corn feed demand – or about 1.6-percent of China’s 144-million tons (5.6-billion bushels) of USDA’s estimated corn feed demand for 2012-13 and 1.1-percent of USDA’s estimated 207-million tons (8.1-billion bushels) 2012-13 total corn demand in China.Source: NAFB News Service By Andy Eubank – Apr 18, 2013 Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

first_img April 22, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information News News News RSF_en Reporters Without Borders strongly condemns the re-arrest of Father Nguyen Van Ly, a human rights activist and editor of the underground publication Tu Do Ngon Luan. Ly was returned to prison this week to resume serving the eight-year jail sentence for anti-government propaganda he received in 2007. He had been on medical parole since March 2010 (read more).“Sending a 64-year-old Catholic priest in very poor health back to prison is very cruel,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Ly had three strokes while in prison and had a brain tumour at the time of his release. The conditions in which he is now being held, like those of prisoners of conscience in general in Vietnam, are a matter of great concern. We call for his immediate release and for him to be allowed access to the medical treatment he needs.”Speaking on condition of anonymity, a prison official told the Associated Press on 26 July that Ly had been incarcerated the previous day in Ba Sao prison, 500 km from his home. A prominent dissident and member of Block 8406, a movement created in 2006 that advocates a multi-party democracy, Ly has had several spells in prison and his health was declining rapidly when he was released last year.Prison conditions are so bad in Vietnam that they constitute a form of psychological and physical torture. Visiting rights are denied, there is no access to medical care, and it is even hard to obtain adequate food on regular basis.Reporters Without Borders is also very concerned about Nguyen Van Hai, a blogger known by the pen-name of Dieu Cay and founder of the Free Vietnamese Journalists Club, who is still being held although he should have been released in October 2010. He has been denied any contact with his family for months and cannot see his lawyer. According to the latest reports, he has lost the use of an arm while in prison. We also call for his immediate release.Amid an apparent deterioration in the situation of netizens in Vietnam Reporters Without Borders urges the authorities to be lenient with two other bloggers, Cu Huy Ha Vu, whose case is due to be heard on appeal on 2 August, and Pham Minh Hoang (www.pkquoc.multiply.com), who is about to complete his first year in “preventive custody.”Under Vietnamese law, the authorities can hold a political detainee for an initial period of four months that can be renewed three times without a court hearing and without the detainee being allowed access to a lawyer. Reporters Without Borders calls for this blogger’s immediate release.Vu was sentenced on 4 April to seven years in prison for anti-government propaganda. Hoang, who has French as well as Vietnamese nationality, as been held since 13 August 2010 for “activities aimed at overthrowing the government” under article 79 of the criminal code.Vietnam is ranked 165th out of 178 countries in the 2010 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index and is on the Reporters Without Borders list of “Enemies of the Internet.” Organisation to go further RSF laureates support jailed Vietnamese journalist Pham Doan Trangcenter_img Vietnam sentences journalist Tran Thi Tuyet Dieu to eight years in prison April 27, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Vietnam VietnamAsia – Pacific Three more independent reporters arrested in Vietnam July 28, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Ailing dissident Catholic priest sent back to prison News VietnamAsia – Pacific April 7, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Mike is currently a Battalion Chief assigned to the Training Division. The Maas family has a combined 92 years of service with the Pasadena Fire Department. The 1952 Seagrave served in the City of South Gate from 1952-1975 before it was sold to a private party in 1975.It features a five-speed manual transmission, 1,000 gallons per minute “waterous pump,” vacuum assist hydraulic brakes and the loudest non-electric siren made.The 1952 Seagrave will also be accompanied by the Pasadena Fire Department’s 1909 Seagrave, housed in the museum at Fire Station 31 on South Fair Oaks Avenue. It is the oldest running piece of fire equipment west of the Mississippi. Featured on this entry will be 97-year old Engineer Jason Fields, the oldest retired Pasadena Firefighter. It will be driven by retired Pasadena Fire Engineer, Ken Woolsey.The third entry will be a Los Angeles County Fire Steamer, a replica of the Pasadena Fire Department’s first Steamer that donned the Parade route in the late 1890’s. It is on loan from the Los Angeles County Firefighter’s Museum.Under the direction of Deputy Chief Kevin Costa, a four-member Float committee dedicated countless hours in researching, acquiring and selecting the entries to showcase the Department in celebrating 125 years of service.The decorations for the entries will take place beginning Saturday, December 28th in Lot I at the Rose Bowl.As Pasadena grew, the need for fire protection grew as well. A little-known event that triggered the formation of a fire department occurred in 1885 when some boys threw a stone into a building, at the corner of Fair Oaks and Mills Alley that was being used by Chinese immigrants as a laundry. The stone tipped over a kerosene lamp, starting a fire that burned down the building. The building’sowner, Johnny Mills, fought feverishly to stop the fire’s growth and prevented it from spreading. Perhaps considering the great Chicago fire of 14 years earlier, allegedly also started by a kerosene lamp (and Mrs. O’Leary’s cow), the City, with some urging by a Dr. H.A. Reid (later a noted local historian), realized that a Fire Department was needed.On October 8, 1887, after a delay to raise money, the City Trustees passed a resolution authorizing a Fire Department and the office of “Chief” was created. They allocated just over $1,000 to start the Fire Department. The first Fire Department was simple, at best. The City’s Blacksmith Shop built the first two pieces of fire apparatus, a hook and ladder rig and a hose cart. These were put into service on May 1, 1888 and ran out of a temporary station on DeLacey, near the Wiley and Greeley’s Livery Stable, which provided the horses for 24 men who were selected to be the Fire Department, with 12 men assigned to each piece of apparatus.

The report found that Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) eligible loans have shrunk throughout the year.The report noted, “a general decline in the overall ‘refinancible’ population of both traditional and HARP-eligible borrowers with associated loan origination volumes dropping in both categories as well.”Overall originations were down nearly 60 percent year-over-year, according to the report.HARP-eligible loans in January, 2013 were 2.3 million, dropping to a January, 2014 figure of 709,000.The report cites that the population of those available to refinance through HARP has fallen by 13 percent over the last two months. The shrinking population of HARP-eligible loans may cause problems for special servicers who recently reported significant earnings that were aided by the government program.Herb Blecher, SVP of Black Knight Financial Services’ Data & Analytics division, said, “[A] good deal of this decline can be attributed to the fact that a majority of those who could refinance at historically low rates in recent years already have, and we see a similar dynamic in terms of HARP-eligible loans.”Blecher continues, “From a geographic perspective, outside of Florida and Nevada, we see the Midwestern states of Illinois, Michigan, Missouri and Ohio have among the highest percentage of HARP eligibility.”Illinois (2.5 percent), Michigan (2.3 percent), Missouri (2.5 percent), and Ohio (2.7 percent) lead the Midwestern states, compared to states with low HARP eligibility such as North Dakota (0 percent), South Dakota (.1 percent), and Montana (.3 percent).Black Knight’s Mortgage Monitor Report also provided data on home equity line of credit (HELOC) lending. 2013 marked the first year that HELOC lending increased since 2006. The report is cautious to note that total home equity volumes were still down more than 90 percent from that time.Delinquency rates in home equity origination fell to just .1 percent, aided in large part to what the report calls “super-prime” borrowers, “with average credit scores for first- and second-lien HELOCs at 786 and 779, respectively.”At the same time, HELOCs originated prior to 2004 are seeing increased rates of new problem loans, up 27 percent year-over-year as the loans hit the amortizing stage.The report notes that the total U.S. loan delinquency rate is 6.27 percent, a decrease of 2.96 percent month-over-month.
