En Sudáfrica abundan los elogios sobre su contribución a la paz y a la concordia en el país africano. Varios noticieros han dicho que fue “el hombre más prominente del siglo XX”. Miami no ha sido la excepción aunque también se ha recordado su visita a Cuba en los años 70 y sus palabras de elogio a Fidel Castro. Su velorio tuvo lugar en un moderno estadio con un gran oficio inter-religioso. Por lo menos 53 jefes de estado participaron de las exequias. Mandela pertenecía a la Iglesia Metodista. Como era de esperarse en Venezuela ganó el oficialismo en las recientes elecciones municipales superando a la oposición en el total de votos emitidos y en la totalidad de alcaldías obtenidas. La oposición ganó los centros urbanos de mayor población como Caracas y Maracaibo.  El ex embajador de Venezuela ante las Naciones Unidas, Diego Arria, dijo que el resultado de las elecciones del domingo debe obligar a la oposición a reflexionar seriamente sobre cuál debe ser ahora el camino a seguir “para luchar contra un régimen empecinado en instaurar un régimen castro-comunista en Venezuela”. La oposición informó que el gobierno montó una gran maquinaria propagandística y que el gobernante Nicolás Maduro amenazó a la población.Por cuarta vez, el Comité Permanente de la diócesis de Puerto Rico ha suspendido la elección de su próximo obispo diocesano que estaba fijada para el 7 de diciembre. Sin dar mayores explicaciones, la declaración del Comité Permanente dice: “ésta ha sido una decisión extremadamente difícil pero que consideramos necesaria para el bienestar de la diócesis ahora y en el futuro”.  También añade: “Debemos abrir un espacio de reflexión y oración para el fortalecimiento de nuestra diócesis. Juntos podemos sanar las heridas que este proceso ha generado entre nuestros hermanos y hermanas”. En entrevista con el noticiero Rapidísimas el obispo saliente, David Álvarez, dijo desde su nueva casa en Ocala, Florida: “Para mí ha sido una decepción que gente que yo coloqué en posiciones de responsabilidad o ganancias materiales hayan creado desconfianza en muchos miembros del clero y el laicado”. Añadió que “oro para que Dios dirija las mentes y corazones  de todos”. La misma reunión nombró al obispo puertorriqueño jubilado Wilfrido Ramos Orench como obispo provisional.Las oficinas nacionales de la Iglesia Episcopal en Nueva York han anunciado que ocho oficiales han sido designados para ocuparse de su ministerio nacional e internacional. A juzgar por la fotografía divulgada por el departamento de prensa todos los nuevos oficiales son jóvenes y aparentemente novatos en el trabajo de la iglesia. De los ocho nombrados siete son mujeres y dos ordenados (un hombre y una mujer). Sólo uno pertenece a una minoría étnica. Esta es la primera vez que tantos oficiales son nombrados al mismo tiempo. Varios de ellos trabajarán en diferentes partes del país siguiendo el nuevo lineamiento de descentralización en la misión. El edificio del Centro Episcopal, oficina nacional e internacional de la Iglesia Episcopal, está localizado en la segunda avenida de Manhattan a una cuadra al oeste del imponente edificio de las Naciones Unidas. Después de un receso de poco más de un año el grupo los Guías Espirituales del Exilio, formado por pastores en el área de Miami, se ha vuelto a reunir con el fin de dar acompañamiento a los que lo necesiten. El grupo tuvo “un descanso” de un año por el fallecimiento de varios de sus líderes en los últimos años entre los que se encuentran el obispo Agustín Román, Rolando Espinoza, Max Salvador, Manuel Salabarría, Francisco Villaverde, Luis Pérez, Francisco Santana, Ovidio Amaro, Anselmo Carral y Emilio Vallina. En la reunión celebrada la semana pasada en un restaurant se hicieron planes preliminares para reanudar las reuniones mensuales. En esta ocasión el grupo tuvo la visita del pastor bautista Mario Lleonart y su esposa Yoaxis, miembros del Movimiento Cristiano Liberación, que trabajan en el poblado de Taguayabón, Villa Clara, y que regresarán Cuba en enero. La próxima reunión de los Guías será en el Salón Varela de la Ermita de la Caridad el 7 de enero a las 10 am.Hay regocijo en la comunidad cristiana mundial por la decisión de la revista Time de escoger al papa Francisco como el ‘Personaje del Año’ por considerar que el nuevo líder de más de más de mil millones de fieles ha modificado notablemente la imagen pública de la Iglesia Católica Romana en muy poco tiempo.

Crop Insurance Considerations as Deadline Nears

first_img Crop Insurance Considerations as Deadline Nears Home Indiana Agriculture News Crop Insurance Considerations as Deadline Nears SHARE Audio Playerhttps://hoosieragtoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/Crop-insurance-deadline-near.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.It’s less than a week now that farmers have to make crop insurance decisions. Decision day is Monday March 15, and it has been a while since the spring crop insurance price has been this high. The average price for December corn futures last month was $4.58 a bushel and it was $11.87 for November soybeans.Ed Usset at the University of Minnesota says those starting prices for crop insurance are very high.“That’s a great thing to start with and you’ve got to have crop insurance. You’ve got to have that. Then I’m telling producers that the market can go lower if we can assume a normal year. If we can assume some sort of non-drought year, just a normal year in the corn belt, we are going to go lower by harvest.”Over in Illinois Gary Schnitkey from U of I agrees, and he suggests taking the highest RP policies you’re comfortable with. He also says use ECO if you are willing to pay the premium. So, for highly productive soils he recommends 80 or 85 percent RP plus ECO to 90 percent.Gary Schnitkey-U of Illinois“First off, I would say it is probably worth it because you are going to be protecting a higher revenue level. So, if at all possible think about that. But many farmers have a budget in mind. If you want to keep in that twelve to eighteen dollar area they’ll have to drop down from 85 percent to 80 percent or roughly five percent and that’s likely the case if you did 80 percent last year you are going to have to drop down to 75 percent to keep your premium about the same. Again, the good thing about dropping from 85 to 80 is you are probably still going to have a higher guarantee this year than last year because of the higher prices.”Farmers on less productive soils will have tougher decisions to make on ECO. University of Illinois has a downloadable crop insurance decision tool to help you see how different coverage levels and options might work on you farms.Here’s the link.Source: NAFB News Facebook Twitter Previous articleUSDA to Investigate Government’s Role in Spread of COVID-19 in Meat Processing FacilitiesNext articleDon’t Cut Corners on Your Weed Control Program Andy Eubank SHARE By Andy Eubank – Mar 8, 2021 Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Hurricane Sally Brings ‘Extensive’ Damages to Gulf Coast

first_img September 16, 2020 1,180 Views Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago About Author: Christina Hughes Babb Home / Daily Dose / Hurricane Sally Brings ‘Extensive’ Damages to Gulf Coast The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago After making landfall as a Category 2 storm Wednesday, Hurricane Sally brought 100 mph winds, as much as three feet of flood waters, and the threat of historic flooding to southeastern Alabama, parts of Mississippi, and the western Florida Panhandle. The National Weather Service called the damage “extensive,” but the full scale of damages to homes in affected areas remains to be seen.In a released statement, Fannie Mae reminded those impacted by Hurricane Sally and the West Coast wildfires of available mortgage assistance and disaster relief options.Fannie Mae’s guidelines for single-family mortgages impacted by a natural disaster stipulate: homeowners may request mortgage assistance by contacting their mortgage servicer following a disaster; mortgage servicers are authorized to suspend or reduce a homeowner’s mortgage payments for up to 90 days–even without establishing contact–if the servicer believes the homeowner was affected by the disaster; and homeowners affected by a disaster are often eligible to reduce or suspend their mortgage payments for up to 12 months.Furthermore, during this temporary payment break, homeowners will not incur late fees; foreclosure and other legal proceedings are suspended, and a number of options available to potentially help homeowners catch up on missed payments, the GSE stated, adding that “homeowners currently on a COVID-19-related forbearance plan who are subsequently impacted by the storm or fires should contact their mortgage servicer to discuss options.Rapid population growth in coastal cities has made these prime real estate markets more vulnerable to the increasing number of extreme weather events, according to a 2017 report.A study by The Journal of Flood Risk Management last spring also examined the effects of storm frequency and intensity on housing values. The study found that, “higher storm exposure accelerates the housing price discount caused by augmented flood risk.”According to the NOAA’s recent forecasts, hurricane season could produce 16 to 18 storms nationwide this year. A recent survey found that, while 86% of homeowners in high-risk states say they feel prepared for this year’s hurricane season, one-third haven’t taken any steps to actually prepare against storm damage.After Hurricane Laura struck last month, Tom Larsen, Principal for Insurance Solutions at CoreLogic, commented on the importance of “the correct valuation of reconstruction cost, one of the core tenets of property insurance …”“Homeowners, mortgage lenders, and insurers need to work together to ensure properties are fully protected and insured. CoreLogic data has found a correlation in mortgage delinquencies and catastrophes, which could point to a serious issue of under-insurance trends.” 2020-09-16 Christina Hughes Babb Hurricane Sally Brings ‘Extensive’ Damages to Gulf Coast Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Christina Hughes Babb is a reporter for DS News and MReport.

Allowing the writ petition filed by the candidate, Telangana High Court, after taking note of the equivalence certificate issued by the Telangana State Board of Intermediate Education, held that the refusal on the part of the University is illegal.Assailing this order of the High Court, the University approached the Apex Court contending that the Regulation 4(2) of the Medical Council of India Regulations on Graduate Medical Education,  lays emphasis not only on the equivalence of the qualification with respect to 10+2 or intermediate sciences examination in the Indian University/Board but that the student should have complete schooling in those subjects in each of the concerned years, i.e. 11th and 12th and should have passed 10+2 with English as a subject as well.The court observed that the equivalence in qualification is not merely at the level of a 10+2 requirement, i.e., that the candidate should have passed an examination equivalent to the intermediate science examination at an Indian University/ Board. Additional to this requirement, Regulation 4(2)(f) requires equivalence in ‘standard and scope’ in an examination where the candidate is tested in Physics, Chemistry and Biology including practical testing in these subjects, along with English, the bench observed. The court said:A careful reading of the said provision discloses that the MCI emphasized that the candidate should have undergone study at the 10+2 stage, (or in the intermediate course) in the specified subjects of Physics, Chemistry and Biology/Bio-technology. In this case, the certificate relied upon by the student merely clarifies that she undertook a course whilst in the 10th grade. That, by no means, is sufficient to fall within the description of “equivalent” qualification under Regulation 4(2)(f). Nor, in the opinion of this court, can it be deemed adequate having regard to the letter of the Assistant Principal of Conrad High School that the AP course in Biological Sciences is of college standard.. In the opinion of this court, there is a rationale and compelling logic on the part of the University to say that the candidate should have studied biology or biological sciences (apart from the other two science subjects, along with the further requirement of having studied English) in all the relevant years during the intermediate or at 10+2 level. Further, the reference to having studied in the first year in a degree course, at the college level with the said subject, carries with it, the implication that the student would have necessarily undergone academic study and training in the said three subjects at the 10+2 or intermediate level (without which, admission in a degree course is inconceivable in India). The further emphasis on having attended or undertaken practical lessons, (again at that level, in each of the concerned years) clearly signifies that a candidate should have undergone study in those subjects for the last two years at school or intermediate college level. The regulation is further clear that the examination score (marks) in Mathematics shall not be taken into consideration for the purpose of admission to a medical course, in reckoning merit or performance in the qualifying examination.While setting aside the High Court judgment, the bench observed that to be eligible, the candidate should produce clear and categorical material to show that she underwent the necessary years of study in all the stipulated subjects. The bench said:In the present case, Regulation 4(2)(f) explicitly refers to the subject matter requirement reiterated in all the eligibility conditions from (a) to (e); the substance of the eligibility requirement indeed, is that the candidate should have qualified an intermediate level examination or first year of a graduate course, and studied the subjects of Physics, Chemistry and Biology at this level, along with practical testing in these subject areas, and the English language. This subject matter requirement is at the heart of eligibility to be admitted into the medical course. . For these reasons, this court is of the opinion that the interpretation placed upon the regulations in both the cited cases, by the Madras High Court, do not reflect the correct position. To be eligible, the candidate should produce clear and categorical material to show that she underwent the necessary years of study in all the stipulated subjects. This court is of the opinion that such stipulations are to be regarded as essential, given that the course in question, i.e., MBBS primarily if not predominantly, involves prior knowledge – both theoretical and practical, of senior secondary level in biology or biological sciences.CASE: KALOJI NARAYANA RAO UNIVERSITY OF HEALTH SCIENCES  vs. SRIKEERTI REDDI PINGLE [CIVIL APPEAL NO. 390 OF 2021]CORAM: Justices L.
