Views and light penetrate the spatial composition throughout its interlocking interior volumes.Save this picture!© Double Space PhotographyThe starting point for the planning of this house was to identify a place on the site which afforded a view of Parliament Hill, and to locate the principal living spaces there. An elongated entry with a natural cedar planked ceiling brings visitors by way of the southerly courtyard to the very core of the site and the home. The result is a home with stunning views, and which enjoys both an intimate connection with the courtyard and a more expansive connection with the river.Save this picture!© Double Space PhotographyFlooring is a combination of white porcelain tile and dark stained, quarter-sawn oak.

Fate of House Farm Bill Extension Not Clear

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Fate of House Farm Bill Extension Not Clear House Agriculture Committee Chair Frank Lucas defended the idea of extending the 2008 Farm Bill for one year over the weekend. He said the changes made for the 2012 Farm Bill are of such a magnitude that the orderly way to implement a new farm bill would be to pass a one-year extension. According to Lucas, “One more year of existing farm policy would provide for an orderly transition to the next farm bill.” As for House action on the extension – Lucas anticipates a limited amount of debate since the only change that can be made is moving the 2008 Farm Bill one year farther down the road and slight adjustments in funding levels to address the fifth year and what would be the sixth year of the farm bill’s livestock feed assistance. Lucas is hopeful the House can clear the measure on Wednesday. But the Chairman isn’t sold on using the extension as the basis for a conference with the Senate-passed bill – stating he is a regular order kind of guy. Without a guarantee of farm bill action later this year – House Agriculture Committee Ranking Member Collin Peterson opposes the extension.The farm bill extension the full House is scheduled to consider this week would make only a slight reduction in the out years in the direct payments program and make no changes to the food stamp program. Prospects for this extension and disaster aid package on the floor are not yet clear. But if the House does approve the extension – Senate Agriculture Committee Chair Debbie Stabenow says the Senate will reject it. Speaking over the weekend – Stabenow called it quite shocking that the House leadership was unwilling to bring a bill that came out of the committee on a bipartisan vote to the floor.Ag Groups Not Too Excited with House Plan to Extend Farm BillIt’s widely expected the U.S. House will consider a farm bill extension this week. The legislation would provide for a one-year extension of current law governing farm programs – including commodity programs, crop insurance, conservation programs and federal nutrition programs – as well as reauthorize supplemental agricultural disaster assistance for the 2012 fiscal year retroactively – and for the 2013 fiscal year. While farm groups want to see work on the farm bill completed before current law expires on September 30th – most have not responded positively to the decision of the House leadership to extend current law for one year.The American Farm Bureau Federation said it would oppose a one-year extension of the 2008 Farm Bill because it fails to move the nation closer to securing a comprehensive, long-term farm bill. President Bob Stallman says an extension does nothing to offer farm and ranch families long-term policy certainty. Stallman points out that the Senate-passed farm bill and the measure approved by the House Agriculture Committee include disaster provisions for livestock farmers – which would likely be included in any conference committee held for the long-term legislation. He says the extension bill does nothing to help hog or poultry producers, does little to provide assistance to the dairy industry and does nothing to aid fruit and vegetable producers who may not have crop insurance available as a risk management tool. Stallman says the Agriculture Committee in the House and the full Senate produced reform-minded, bipartisan bills that address many of the core principles Farm Bureau believes are important. The group is encouraging House members and their leaders to recognize the example set by the Chairs and Ranking Members of the Agriculture Committees to forge fiscally responsible bipartisan legislation. Stallman says an extension falls well short of that target.National Farmers Union only supports a one-year extension if the next step is to conference a comprehensive five-year farm bill before the September 30th expiration date. NFU President Roger Johnson says an extension that ignores the goal of a five-year bill merely kicks the can down the road and would necessitate starting the farm bill drafting process over in the new Congress in January. According to Johnson – the clock is ticking and this extension is wasting time that could be spent on passing a bipartisan, forward-looking bill before the September 30th deadline. He says House leadership needs to stop playing political games and show it values rural America by passing a farm bill now. Johnson notes the proposed one-year extension cuts the one title that had the most agreement among all parties – the conservation title. He adds that it cuts mandatory funding from vital beginning farmer and rancher, renewable energy and direct-to-consumer marketing programs.Garry Niemeyer – National Corn Growers Association President – says America’s farmers need a new farm bill that will allow them the ability to make sound business decisions for the next five years. He says an extension of current law fails to provide the needed level of certainty – adding that NCGA advocates reforming programs into more efficient farm policy that will be responsive to taxpayers. According to Niemeyer – continuing outdated farm policies will negatively impact agriculture, the federal budget, consumers and the economy.The American Soybean Association believes U.S. farmers and livestock producers need certainty in programs that help them manage risk in order to make decisions that will affect their operations over the long-term. ASA First Vice President Danny Murphy says that’s especially true as devastating drought conditions cover more than half of the country. He says a one-year extension of the 2008 Farm Bill combined with short-term disaster assistance to livestock producers won’t provide the certainty agriculture needs today. According to Murphy – a new five-year farm bill with long-term risk management and disaster assistance programs is needed. But ASA does support moving the farm bill process forward so that a conference can be convened when Congress returns from the August recess. Murphy says the group understands a one-year extension of the current farm bill may be all that can pass the House before it adjourns. He says ASA can support an extension if there are assurances that a new five-year bill can be negotiated in September.National Association of Conservation Districts President Gene Schmidt called it shortsighted to sacrifice conservation programs that help mitigate the impacts of drought and other disasters in order to pay for disaster aid. According to Schmidt – long-term conservation planning is our best defense in protecting and preserving our natural resource base for the future. He suggested it is better to continue to invest in conservation now than to be forced to pay the escalated costs of repair down the road. By Gary Truitt – Jul 30, 2012 Facebook Twittercenter_img Previous articleDrought-Stressed Corn for Silage ConsiderationsNext articleAmerican Livestock asks for RFS Waiver Gary Truitt SHARE The National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) issued the following statement expressing strong opposition to attempts by the House to extend a version of the current farm bill by one year and reiterating support for the inclusion of Dairy Security Act (DSA) in any final farm bill package: “The current safety net for dairy farmers is not sufficient in dealing with scenarios like we are currently facing from high feed costs associated with the ongoing drought,” said Jerry Kozak, President and CEO of NMPF. “If we are going to be serious about providing better protection for the nation’s dairy farmers while at the same time providing taxpayer savings from current programs, then we should pass a new farm bill which includes the DSA, which was included in both the Senate-passed farm bill and the farm bill recently passed out of the House Agriculture Committee. “Under the proposed extension, the Milk Income Loss Contract Program (MILC) would not pay out for the remainder of 2012 or for 2013 while the nation’s dairy farmers are experiencing razor-thin margins. The proposed 2008 farm bill extension does nothing to ensure dairy farmers and their bankers that they will have any safety net to deal with the present and future periods of tight margins and extreme volatility.Source: NAFB News Sevice Fate of House Farm Bill Extension Not Clearlast_img read more

This year, CAP partnered with the All Ways Up Foundation and the California Masonic Foundation, whereby selected twelfth graders were invited to apply to scholarships provided by these organizations if they met the desired requirements. CAP is pleased to announce that 23 PUSD students representing all six district high schools will receive scholarships from these two organizations. These selected twelfth graders were of the 100 graduating students from the class of 2016 who regularly attended CAP’s programs also invited to participate in CAP’s I Heart College alumni program, which supports students through college graduation with personalized attention, care packages, alumni events, and more.CAP Executive Director Mo Hyman notes, “These collaborations are enormously important to CAP and our students. We alone cannot provide our alumni with much-needed financial support, but we can help to ensure students can navigate the often confusing process of attending college, which shores up the monetary investment of these two fabulous partners.”Maria MejiaThe All Ways Up Foundation will provide ten students with renewable scholarships totaling $10,000 over four years. Winners are required to attend a one- or five-day summit that helps them to transition to college. Lee Schube, All Ways Up Senior Program Director, says, “All Ways Up is pleased to support ten highly motivated CAP students who are about to embark on their college journeys. We have been supporting CAP for the past several years and congratulate them on the work they are doing to help low-income students get into and through college.”Mary Mejia, who is graduating from Pasadena High School and will attend UCLA in the fall, says that “Winning this scholarship means so much. I still can’t believe that someone recognizes my efforts and hard work, and wants to provide me money to keep this drive going.” She adds, “It’s one of the first scholarships that I applied to. So actually receiving this scholarship gave me the hope and motivation to apply to more and more scholarships.” Mejia will participate in the I Heart College Program and notes that “being able to call up CAP if I ever stumble upon anything foreign to me or if I ever just need advice provides so much relief.” There is another aspect of this program that she is excited about: “those care packages are going to lift my spirits because who doesn’t like free stuff!”The California Masonic Foundation has generously provided scholarships to thirteen CAP students who will attend California State Universities and community colleges. These students will receive renewable scholarships of at least $7,000 over four years. Douglas Ismail, Executive Vice President of the California Masonic Foundation, says that, “We are proud to make it possible for these deserving young men and women, all first generation college students, to succeed in college and pursue their dreams of a degree. Our fraternity believes that educated citizens are critical to our democracy and this scholarship helps advance this value.”Masons scholarship winner Symphony Brown, who attends CIS Academy and will attend California State University Dominguez Hills, was thrilled to be selected for this scholarship, saying “When I received the call that I was awarded the scholarship I was so excited I started singing ‘Celebration’ By Kool and the Gang.” Brown is likewise enthusiastic about the opportunity to participate in CAP’s I Heart College program, noting that “all through high school CAP has been such a supportive backbone when it comes to my higher education. Throughout college I’ll have the comfort of knowing that I’ll have mentors to ask questions and call on for help.”Brown and Mejia agree that these awards will have a profound impact on their college finances. Mejia says, “I can worry less about taking out loans, which is a blessing” and Brown adds, “This scholarship will help me in college to keep from worrying about employment due to school expenses and focus on being a better full-time student.”The All Ways Up Foundation’s All Ways A Scholar winners are: Angelika Bolivar, Mai-Lin Graves, Mary Mejia, Andrew Ochola, Yendrick Porras, Derek Taylor, Mariah Dimalaluan, Julia See, Kaitlyn Walker-Tillett, and Elissa Wartoukian.Winners of the California Masons Scholarship are: David Vega, José Muñoz, Daniel Lopez, Estefani Perez, Damaris Pacheco, Symphony Brown, Joselyne Hernandez, Adriana Arellano, Adriana Moreno, Gabriela Monzano, Dennis Gonsales, Jozlyn Hobdy, and Esperanza Preciado.About College Access PlanCollege Access Plan is an independent 501c3 nonprofit that prepares underserved students to succeed in college.

The Petitioner has expressed doubts over the genuineness of the alleged encounters and has hinted that the same were stages to eliminate Dubey and his aides, who were crucial witnesses to the “Police-Criminal-Politician nexus” in the state. In this context he recalled half a century old observation made by Justice A.N. Mulla in the case of State Of Uttar Pradesh v. Mohammad Naim, 1964 AIR 703, while hearing charges of wrongful detention, sexual assault, false implication and cover-up against the cops. “There is not a single lawless group in the whole of the country whose record of crime comes anywhere near the record of that single organised unit which is known as the Indian police force. The police force in Uttar Pradesh is an organised gang of criminals,” Justice Mulla had said. The Petitioner has also raised serious concern over demolition of Dubey’s house and vehicles in Kanpur, “leading to complete destruction of evidence and dismantling of crime scene.” He has contended that the law enforcement agency of the UP police has assumed itself to be “above law” and it poses a serious threat of the Rule of Law. It is urged that the act of Police in first eliminating the crime scene and then eliminating the gang of criminals despite catching them alive, amounts to “destruction of complete chain of evidence” and such actions require judicial scrutiny to unfold the cover of a “broader conspiracy” which may involve the top police men and political persons of the state. He has also asked the Court to consider whether mandatory independent judicial inquiry is required to every encounter killing done by the police and whether the case at hand is a fit case for judicial intervention by the Supreme Court, leading broader reforms for infusing professionalism and accountability in police machinery in the entire country. Dubey was arrested from MP’s Ujjain yesterday, and was being brought to Kanpur by a convoy of the UP police, in connection with killing of eight policemen on July 3. Allegedly, the vehicle in which Dubey was seated overturned in a skid, after which Dubey is alleged to have died in cross-firing, in attempt to escape. A day prior to the encounter, a petition was filed before the Supreme Court, hinting at the possibility of Dubey being “killed” by the UP Police. “…there is every possibility that even accused Vikas Dubey shall be killed by Uttar Pradesh Police like other co-accused once his custody is obtained Uttar Pradesh Police,” the plea stated. Apart from seeking transfer of Dubey’s case to the CBI, the plea sought a thorough investigation into the “killing/alleged encounter” of Dubey’s aides who were allegedly involved in killing of eight policemen. A petition seeking SIT probe into the incident has been filed by the PUCL. Two letter petitions have also been sent to the Chief Justice to the Allahabad High Court, seeking CBI/ SIT enquiry and a an independent judicial probe into the incident.

“Artists of Montgomery” exhibit comes to Troy

first_img Print Article “The response was overwhelming,” he said.“There was a great show of community support. The staff and volunteers did a great job and we are so very pleased with the quality of the exhibition. The ‘Artists of Montgomery: Past and Present’ exhibition gets our 2011 calendar off to a good start.” Next UpGibson said that the artists were pleasantly shocked to find that Troy has such an outstanding arts center.“We heard a lot of comments from the artists,” he said. “Many of them said they had never made the trip down to Troy before. To find such a lovely town was a pleasant surprise and they were just blown away by the town and cultural arts center. The artists were please to have their work hung among such a large and diverse grouping of artwork.”Georgine Clarke, Alabama State Council on the Arts visual arts program manager, attended the reception and was equally excited about the exhibition and the number of people who attended. The opening reception for the “Artists of Montgomery: Past & Present’ exhibition at the Johnson Center for the Arts Sunday afternoon attracted a large gathering of community people as well as the artists and other Montgomerians.The exhibition features 187 works of art by 100 Montgomery artists.

Brundidge UMC celebrates 150th anniversary

first_img Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson The present church building was constructed in 1919 but the church was not dedicated until 10 years later when the church was paid for.The church was built on the Akron Plan that was popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and was first used in 1872 at the First Methodist Episcopal Church in Akron, Ohio.Churches built on the Akron Plan have a rotunda surrounded by connecting Sunday school classrooms on one or two levels. The plan initially promoted efficiency of movement between Sunday school and worship services. But most of the existing churches built on the Akron Plan have expanded to include Sunday school building, fellowship hall and offices.Lawler said the Akron Plan was popular for two main reasons, Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Brundidge United Methodist Church celebrated 150 years on Sunday with a special morning service with the Rev. John Ed Mathison as the guest minister and with a shared fellowship “dinner.”The Rev. Michael Lawler, church pastor, said BUMC has a long and distinguished history of service to God and the people of Brundidge.“The exact date of the advent of Methodism in Brundidge is unknown but records of the Alabama-West Florida Conference confirm appointments of ministers who served through the years of the War Between the States,” Lawler said. “Methodist preachers first preached at camp meetings in Brundidge as early as 1842 and it may have been earlier than that but we have no records confirming that.” Lawler said a church building was constructed in 1856 and circuit riders and lay leaders held services in the church at different times.“But it was not until 1862, that a fulltime pastor was assigned to the Methodist church in Brundidge,” Lawler said. “The first resident pastor for the Methodists in Brundidge was the Rev. Anthony Seale Dickenson, a charter member of the Alabama Conference. He was appointed in 1861-62 and again in 1864 and 1868.”Dickinson was the great-grandfather of Betty Dickinson Hixon, a church member whose family has been in the church for six generations. The Dickert family (Don) has also had a continuous presence in BUMC for six generations.

Many of the churches had a balcony and that extra height made them cooler during hot weather.”Sara Bowden, a lifelong member of BUMC, attended Sunday school on the second level of the church.“Mr. Perry Owens was the church treasurer and he would come around and take our collection, put it in his pocket and go off somewhere and count it,” Bowden said. “The younger children had Sunday school down in the fellowship hall and Mrs. Wood would play the piano for the general assembly and then the children would go to their classes in the fellowship hall.”There was a physical closeness in the churches built on the Akron Plan and, although, BUMC now has a Sunday school wing, a spiritual closeness exists among the members of the church, which had a spiritual existence in Brundidge before Brundidge was a town, Lawler said.

Chinese Solar Drives Record in Global Green Financing

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Bloomberg News:China’s insatiable appetite for solar power led to a surprise increase in global clean-energy investment last year even as U.S. President Donald Trump pushed to undermine pollution rules and curbs on coal.About $333.5 billion poured into renewable energy and cutting-edge power technologies, up 3 percent from 2016 and 7 percent short of the record set in 2015, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance. Almost half went to solar projects, and China’s investment accounted for 40 percent of the total.The figures confounded strong headwinds to further increases in investment. Prices for solar panels and wind turbines are falling rapidly, while the U.S., Germany and Poland were among the countries loosening policies designed to curb the dirtiest fossil fuels. Developers speculating they will reap subsidies in China along with higher spending from Australia to Mexico helped offset declines in longer-established markets across Europe.“The 2017 total is all the more remarkable when you consider that capital costs for the leading technology – solar – continue to fall sharply,” said Jon Moore, chief executive officer at BNEF. “Typical utility-scale PV systems were about 25 percent cheaper per megawatt last year than they were two years earlier.”Equipment such as solar panels and wind turbines are getting more affordable as they are increasingly mass-produced. The sliding cost has opened up new markets beyond rich countries, which typically were the early adopters of renewables when the industry was young. Now, solar and wind farms are an increasingly cost-effective way to electrify places with uncertain access to the grid. Projects are being built to power everything from chemicals plants in the Netherlands to suburbs of Kabul, Afghanistan.  More: China’s Solar Boom Boosts Clean Energy Funding Near Record Chinese Solar Drives Record in Global Green Financinglast_img read more
