first_img Poll Shows Free Trade Support is Growing SHARE A new poll by the Wall Street Journal shows an increase in support for free trade in the United States. The growing support comes despite anti-trade sentiments by President Donald Trump and his removal of the U.S. from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, along with intent to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement. The poll done last week found that 43 percent of Americans surveyed thought positively of free trade between the U.S. and foreign countries, while 34 percent of respondents thought free trade hurt the country. The results represent a sharp reversal from a similar poll from March of last year.That poll found just 27 percent of Americans favored free trade, and 43 percent said free trade harmed the nation. Increasingly positive views of the net benefits of trade came mainly from Democrats, as 57 percent of them said free trade helped more than hurt, up from 34 percent in 2016.Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Poll Shows Free Trade Support is Growing Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articleRancher, Farmer, Fisherman Will Screen at Commodity Classic Hoosier Ag Today By Hoosier Ag Today – Feb 27, 2017 last_img read more

first_imgAudio Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.It has been a somewhat soggy finish to the week, but what weather do we welcome next? This planting weather forecast is presented by Seed Genetics Direct, the Eastern Corn Belt’s fastest growing independent seed company. Visit for pricing and more information.HAT Chief Meteorologist Ryan Martin says the number one weather story over the holiday weekend is cooler air.“We actually saw this cooler air push into the Eastern Corn Belt overnight Wednesday and into Thursday,” Martin explained. “Behind the front coming in Friday, we are going to see an even cooler surge of air that settles in over the Eastern Corn Belt. Do we think that it’s damaging or concerning? No, but it definitely is going to slow things down just a little bit. The cooler air in my opinion sticks around for several days. Pleasant let’s call it for Saturday, and pleasant to slightly warmer for Sunday and Monday. We finally get back to closer to normal temperatures by mid-week next week.”Martin says there will not be moisture during the weekend even though Saturday starts cloudy. The dry weather period does include Memorial Day Monday.“Even Tuesday is dry, but now I have to put moisture into the forecast for most of the rest of next week,” he said. “Wednesday hit and miss scattered showers around, 60 percent coverage, anywhere from a few hundredths to a few tenths. Same thing Thursday. Friday, mostly it’s over southern Indiana but we won’t rule it out anywhere, and then Saturday, Sunday, the 5th and 6th, hit and miss scattered showers are back, anywhere from a few hundredths to four or five tenths or so. So, we’re moving into an active pattern that does not feature a lot of drying.”Martin adds, “At this point with planting mostly done, that is probably not an all bad forecast, it’s just not quite ideal.”The planting weather forecast is also brought to you by the Indiana Corn Marketing Council, Indiana Soybean Alliance, and Risk Management Commodities.

A bench comprising Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice M Nagaprasanna was informed by the counsel for Nimhans that the OPD department was closed down for two months during the lockdown period and has resumed functioning from June 1. The bench then said “Every institution is working under constraints. Don’t make irresponsible statements. In the main PIL we have noted the work done by NIMHANS. The director of NIMHANS appeared before us through video conferencing and work done by NIMHANS during the period of lockdown has been appreciated.” It added that “Situation is not normal. Sitting in your office is alright for you to say this is not done properly. Ultimately all institutions are being run by human beings. Every human who is resident of Benagluru at present is under threat. You cannot say that they have kept the OPD close so they have committed a blunder or illegality. Fact of the matter is in best possible manner within limitations imposed by corona19, the institution is functioned.” As regards to the second prayer made in the petition filed by Advocate Jay Datt Bhatt of exclusion of Mental Health Professionals from the practice of ‘Telemedicine’ in the guidelines issued by MOHF&W, Govt. of India. Counsel for NIMHANS informed the court that “Even during the lockdown period the services of telemedicine were provided and are still operational.” The bench in its order said “It will be open for the petitioner to make representation to the authority who has drafted the guidelines. It is obvious that if such a representation is made concerned authority will take decision on the same.” The plea had stated that the Orders issued by the Union Ministry of Home Affairs for ensuring social distancing clearly state that Hospital & all related Medical establishments will remain functional.

first_imgDrew Angerer/Getty Images(WASHINGTON)  — Tuskegee Airman Charles McGee was honored by NASA during their Black History Month program hours after being acknowledged by President Donald Trump at his State of the Union address on Tuesday night.“Incredible story,” Trump said Tuesday. “After more than 130 combat missions in World War II, he came back home to a country still struggling for civil rights and went on to serve America in Korea and Vietnam.”Ahead of the address on Capitol Hill, Trump signed a bill promoting McGee to brigadier general and pinned the stars on his shoulders in the Oval Office.In his storied career, McGee flew a record 409 combat missions. During World War II, McGee escorted bombers over Germany, Austria, and the Balkans. During the Korean and Vietnam Wars, McGee participated in 100 interdiction missions and 173 reconnaissance missions.On Wednesday, McGee was interviewed by astronaut Alvin Drew about his career, education and his early memories of flying. McGee closed his portion of the event by challenging his audience to give back to the next generation. Despite facing obstacles of racism in Brig. Gen. Charles McGee’s early years, “that didn’t deter from my training.” Alvin Drew of @NASA_Astronauts sits down with the trailblazer to discuss his legacy as an 100-year-old Tuskegee Airman. Watch:— NASA (@NASA) February 5, 2020“Are you mentoring a youngster coming along behind you? Whether it’s in your family, neighborhood or city, there are youngsters needing that. If you don’t have a mentor, somewhere in your neighborhood there is one. Don’t overlook that because those young folks are the future.”McGee is currently a mentor to his great-grandson Iain Lanphier, who sat next to him at the Capitol during the State of the Union address.Inspired by the Tuskegee Airman, Lanphier hopes to do great things like his great-grandfather and the president said that he hopes to attend the Air Force Academy and eventually travel into space.“He has his eye on the Space Force,” Trump said Tuesday, referencing the new sixth branch of the U.S. military. “As Iain says, most people look up at space, I want to look down on the world.” Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

first_imgAs more companies call on the services of occupational health nurses, demandfor education at various levels will increase. Nurse educators should aim to raise the profile of education in the sectorand enhance the quality of student learning. Another growing role is working with and providing critical comment ongovernment and national policies which affect OH education. The Association of Occupational Health Nurse Educators (UK) exists for anumber of reasons: as a forum to support and coordinate discussion, developmentand networking; to formu- late and maintain an up-to-date database of nursingeducation courses and providers; and to provide information and support forproviders of occupational health nursing education. It is also there to encourage links between educators and OH nurseemployers, and to provide learning opportunities and an environment to preparecompetent OHN practitioners. We aim to take the initiative in working with all multidisciplinary andmulti-agency teams, to disseminate and exchange good practice in OH and safety.All nurse educators who are involved in full- or part-time OHN education canuse the association as a support network as well as a forum. In order for AOHNE to make a positive contribution to future developments instandards in OH education, many of us have actively contributed to theGovernment’s public health agenda1. Also, occupational health nurse educators should be sensitive to our marketrequirements by working proactively with stakeholders to ensure the educationof OH nurses is progressive, effective and efficient. We must, I believe, continue to offer a full range of OH nursing coursesfrom the traditional course to those at degree level. In order to share good practice the AOHNE has started to communicate via ourown occupational health website. And we have been increasing contacts with our international colleagues viathe OH web2; which also lists all providers of OHN education. I invite alloccupational health practioners to work with us to promote and improve thehealth and safety of people at work.

first_imgTUC pushes for changes to Disability Discrimination ActOn 1 Oct 2003 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos. Changes to the Disability Discrimination Act are needed to prevent peoplebeing excluded from the workplace on the strength of genetic test results,pressure groups and the TUC are warning. The campaign, spearheaded by genetic ethics group Genewatch, follows thelaunch of the Government-backed UK Biobank genetic research project thatintends to lookÊinto individual genetic susceptibility to workplace hazards. There is no legal protection for an applicant who is rejected for aninherited predisposition to an illness such as heart disease or cancer. TheDisability Discrimination Act 1995 kicks in only once the symptoms of a diseaseaffect the individual’s ability to carry out the job. Genewatch deputy director Helen Wallace said: “Because of thisloophole, the danger that people will be excluded on the basis of genetic testsis going to outweigh the potential benefits of knowing how workplace conditionsimpact on disease.” Wallace, along with disability rights groups, is concerned that employerscould use tests to limit access to occupational pension schemes and otherbenefits. TUC general secretary Brendan Barber said: “We want the Government toensure everyone has an equal right to succeed at work – whatever their geneticinheritance. We should be promoting opportunities for all, not penalisingpeople because of their genes.” Comments are closed. last_img read more
