first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Upcoming Free Seminar Aims to Help Farmers Get Financially and Mentally Healthy SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter Upcoming Free Seminar Aims to Help Farmers Get Financially and Mentally Healthy By Andy Eubank – Jan 21, 2020 Seminar-to-help-farmers-get-healthyJohn SchwarzFarming has been in a rough stretch. Farmers and their families bear the brunt of the associated challenges of making it through these types of periods, and that’s the catalyst for an upcoming seminar for farmers. A Cass County ag lawyer and farmer, John Schwarz has created the Strengthening and Sustaining Farms and Farmers seminar.“Not only are a lot of farms struggling with the general farm economy, but with the financial stress comes mental stress on farmers,” he said. “I see more and more articles and information on farmers and mental health treatment, and unfortunately farmer suicides are up, I think we all know that.”Schwarz’s idea was an event to help farmers strengthen not only their operation but themselves. As an attorney, Schwarz will begin the seminar with a nuts and bolts discussion on protecting the farm.“USDA just came out last year with their census report and 85 percent of the farmers in the country are still sole proprietors,” he told HAT. “They’re not set up as a corporation. They’re not set up as an LLC or a limited partnership. They’re not anything, and they’re one accident away, one environmental issue away from financial ruin. They’re leaving tax money on the table each year.”He added an improperly structured operation makes it a lot harder to create a succession plan. Jeff Milligan, a farm CPA from Logansport will add expertise in that discussion.Other topics include crop insurance, working through family dynamics on the farm, and details on government programs that can be resources for farmers. Also, nationally recognized farmer mental health expert Val Farmer, who worked with farmers in the difficult 1980’s, will speak on how to do a better job of handling the stress.Speakers include Todd Landrum, Ag Resource Management, Andy Junkin, Agricultural Strategy, and Susan McClish with Agri-File Solutions.The free seminar is the night of February 5th, 2020 at the Logansport Ivy Tech campus beginning at 5 PM. Call the Schwarz law office to RSVP at 574-643-9999.Support for the seminar is being provided by Indiana Farm Bureau.

Today, we’ve got an update on the flooding in the Midwest, a possible breaking point for Hawaii, and an update on Brexit.Trump steps away fromdecades of American policy in Middle EastPresident Trump announced on Twitter that the United States would recognize the authority of Israel in the long disputed Golan Heights, according to The New York Times.Trump was pressured by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who is a close political ally and will be up for re-election in April. This is seen as a big political win for Netanyahu.It is a decision that is not expected to be popular around the world and could ruin Trump’s attempt at bringing peace between Israel and the Palestinians. From a practicality standpoint the move meansvery little, but it does have a lot of symbolic meaning. Two American soldierskilled in AfghanistanAmerican forces are reporting that two Americansoldiers were killed Friday while conducting an operation in Afghanistan,according to TheAssociated Press. The names of the soldiers will not be releaseduntil next of kin are notified. The exact location and who was being fought isalso not being released. There are still approximately 14,000 American soldiers in Afghanistan helping Afghan forces fight the Taliban in the country. Flooding in Midwestmight have long term affects on farmersFlash flooding caused by temperature increases, sudden snowmelt, and heavy rainfall has been felt throughout the Midwest. Two have already died and the water has caused nearly $1.4 billion of damage in Nebraska alone, according to NBC News. Most of the farmers were storing their soybean and corn bushels in grain silos hoping the price would go up from its record low amid the Trump administration trade wars. Many of them lost everything. The increased frequencies of thesefloods have many multigenerational farmers packing up and heading out. They sayit is just to hard to deal with conditions that are so unpredictable. Hawaii might be attipping point with regards to tourismThe University of Hawaii published a paper saying that Hawaii might have reached a point where there are too may annual visitors for the state’s resources to handle, according to Fox News. The paper claims that it will damage the qualityof life for locals and the problem will only continue to escalate unlesschanges are made to how tourism is currently handled in the state.Hawaii had a record breaking 9.9 milliontourists in 2018. That brought in over $2 billion in Tax revenue. State officials are waiting to see what kind of impact Southwest Airlines announcing they will fly 4,000 customers to the Islands daily has on the tourism numbers. Reports are thatKaepernick and Reid settlement was worth less than $10MColin Kaepernick and Eric Reid will reportedly get less than$10 million combined after reaching a grievance settlement with the NFLregarding their collusion case, according to BleacherReport.The two claimed the league colluded to keep them out afterReid was the first player to join Kaepernick in kneeling during the nationalanthem to protest police violence and racial injustice when they were teammateson the San Francisco 49ers in 2016.Kaepernick then became a free agent the following year andwent unsigned in 2017 and 2018. Reid missed part of the 2018 season, as no team would signhim until the Carolina Panthers did midway through the year. Britainnot leaving EU just yetEuropean leaders set an April 12 deadline for Britain to comeup with a deal for leaving the European Union, according to The Washington Post.That means if British lawmakers approve the separation deal that has already failed to pass twice, then they can leave the EU May 22. If they do not pass that deal they will need to come up with an alternative by the new deadline. British prime minister Theresa May was seeking a 3 month extension at the EU summit, though says she was happy with what they were given because it makes it very clear the options that are on the table.

first_img Reporters Without Borders is deeply shocked by the discovery of an Internet activist’s decapitated body in the northeastern city of Nuevo Laredo on 9 November. Identified by the nickname of “Rascatripas” (Belly-Scratcher), he helped moderate “Nuevo Laredo en Vivo,” a website about organized crime. He was the fourth netizen to be slain in this dangerous border town in the past two months for reporting on the activities of drug traffickers. His hands had been tied and his head had been severed from his body. A message left beside the body said: “This happened to me for not understanding that I shouldn’t report things on social networks.”“The list of netizens falling victim to the cartels keeps on getting longer,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Just reporting information on the Internet has become almost suicidal. All of Mexican society is now concerned. The safety of all those who take the risk of covering Mexico’s violence depends on the success of the investigation into these murders. We demand justice for the slain Internet users and bloggers just as we do for murdered and missing journalists.”The bodies of the three previous victims were left in a similarly gruesome manner. The beheaded body of María Elisabeth Macías, a journalist and blogger who used social networks to report on local organized crime activities, was found on 27 October in exactly the same place with a similar message signed “Z,” for the Zetas, a cartel that is active in the region.The bodies of a man and a woman bearing the marks of torture were hung from a bridge in Nuevo Laredo on 13 September with a message threatening those who contribute to websites that denounce the activities of organized crime.In the absence of coverage in many traditional media, which censor themselves for fear of reprisals, Mexicans use social networks and websites such as Nuevo Laredo en Vivo and the Blog del Narco to denounce and discuss the activities of the drug cartels. These netizens are unfortunately eliciting a violent response from the cartels and cannot always count on support from the authorities. The toll from the federal offensive against drug trafficking meanwhile continues to mount.Two Internet users were arrested on charges of terrorism and sabotage in the east-coast city of Veracruz at the end of August for posting messages on Twitter about the possibility of an organized crime attack on a Veracruz school. They were finally released and the charges were dropped after a month.The drug war has also moved online. The hacker collective Anonymous had threatened to reveal the names of persons linked to the Zetas cartel but withdrew the threat on 5 November after the cartel reportedly offered to release a kidnapped Anonymous activist in return for its silence. The kidnap victim’s name was not released for safety reasons.

first_img Brian Crandall reports on housing and development for the Ithaca Voice. He can be reached at bcr[email protected] More by Brian Crandall Brian Crandall ITHACA, N.Y. — An apartment complex in the city portion of Ithaca’s West Hill has changed hands in a multi-million dollar sale. A check of the LLC address shows that it is shared with High Peaks Capital, a commercial real estate investment firm. Principal Derek Carroll confirmed his company as the purchaser of the apartments. “I went to Cornell, and I know the area pretty well. I like this location. It seems like it’s a rough property in a nice area. I like that about it.” With the apartment complex now among his company’s assets, Carroll expressed optimism in both the Chestnut Hill property and in Ithaca. “We think there’s a lot of upside to turn it around and get the income back up to where it should be. I absolutely would buy more properties in the area if the right opportunity comes up.” Tagged: chestnut hill apartments, derek carroll, high peaks capital, Real Estate Sales, west hill Carroll is a real estate broker and licensed commercial broker who has worked in the industry for years, before becoming his own boss with the launch of High Peaks Capital in 2015. The company serves as an intermediary for investors; those who may want to invest in real estate to diversify their portfolios beyond stocks and bonds, but would prefer to leave the process of acquisitions, renovations and property management to someone else.center_img “Some of it’s my money, some of it’s my partners. It’s very similar to most large real estate deals. From being in the industry, and doing (commercial) debt and equity for others, most deals that you see happen are some combination of partnerships and passive investors. We pick up properties for nice, stable cash flow with upside, allowing diversification outside the stock and bond markets.” Upside here means that there is potential to make it a more profitable investment. The county clerk’s records show that alongside the sale and deed filing, High Peaks Capital was granted a $2.86 million construction loan from Syracuse-based Empower Federal Credit Union. A breakdown of fees and costs shows that most of that will go toward the acquisition costs (i.e. like a mortgage), but at least $316,000 of the loan is earmarked for renovation costs. The complex has provided lower-priced housing for city residents. While it has had a rather troubled history, there are fair concerns that a new buyer, especially one focused on “upside”, would move the apartments upmarket, displacing lower-income residents. Carroll said that while there are plans to renovate, the plan is to keep the units as lower-moderate income workforce housing. “We’re going to keep it very similar, there are not a lot of affordable units in Ithaca. We’ll clean it up, do the common areas, make it a little safer. We’ll keep it affordable. There’s a lot of excess land, we think there’s a high demand for units that aren’t Class A luxury. We’re in a good position to make it affordable but nice at the same time,” said Carroll. “It’s nothing dramatic, we’re keeping them affordable. Nothing extreme.” Carroll added that the Chestnut Hill Apartments would likely be renamed as part of a rebranding, partly an effort to move on from its difficult past, and partly to give it a fresh image to go with the renovations. The Chestnut Hill Apartments at 139-57 Chestnut Street were sold for $3.18 million last Friday. Rabco Realty (the Rabinor family) sold the apartment complex to an LLC located in suburban Rochester. The Rabinor family had owned the 60-unit apartment complex since 1977, four years after the buildings opened to their first tenants. Notably, the purchase price was well below the county’s assessed value for the complex, $3.85 million, making it appear to be a rare buyer’s bargain in Ithaca’s strong multi-family real estate market. But Carroll downplayed that idea. “It’s assessed a little high, we’re going to go in and get it reassessed. It’s a low-income property, with a lot of delinquency (unpaid rent). We think we paid a little too much.”last_img read more

first_img“At present, the University has not taken any decision on rescinding the Sultan of Brunei’s 1993 Honorary Degree of Civil Law by Diploma.” “If they fail to meet that, as in this case, they should be stripped of their honour. We have written to the Vice Chancellor to ask them to remove the degree.” A University of Aberdeen spokesperson told PinkNews: “TheUniversity of Aberdeen is inclusive and open to all. Oxford SU has been contacted for comment. Other universities have been quick to review accolades they have given to Bolkiah, including King’s College London and the University of Aberdeen. In a Facebook post, the SU stated: “All honorary doctorates should reflect theethos of the University. We want to create a safe and inclusive society for alland the people who receive this type of honour should be held to a highstandard. Speaking to Cherwell, a spokesperson for the university said “We share the international condemnation of Brunei’s new penal code and back the United Nations’ call to stop the code entering into force. “I want to see Islamic teachings in this country grow stronger,” Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah said in a public address, according to AFP news agency. There was no mention of the strict new interpretation of Sharia, or Islamic law. The Sultan’s new laws prescribe death by stoning for sodomy and adultery. Other laws that will be introduced include amputation for thieves, and flogging for abortion. It is believed that these new laws come under the Sultan’s wish to adopt some of the tougher elements of Islamic religious law. “In light of this new information this matter willbe raised as a matter of urgency with the University’s Honorary DegreesCommittee.” Bolkiah first stated his intention to introduce sharia law tothe country in 2013. Oxford awarded Bolkiah an honorary degree of civil law by diploma in 1993. In this role as Sultan, he functions as head of state and prime minister, and is the second longest-serving monarch in the world. King’s College London has also confirmed that the university will review an honorary degree it gave to the sultan eight years ago. “We share the international condemnation of Brunei’s new penalcode and back the United Nations’call to stop the code entering into force.” A spokesperson for the University earlier told PinkNews that “at present, the University will not be rescinding the Sultan of Brunei’s 1993 Honorary Degree of Civil Law by Diploma.” The University has resisted demands by the Student Union to strip the Sultan of Brunei, Hassanal Bolkiaj, of his honorary doctorate. This article was amended on the 3rd April to clarify that the university had yet to make a formal decision.last_img read more
