While not sensational, the business surveys indicate a return to growth for 2011. Rates should be gradually normalised to signal that the Bank is serious about fighting spiralling inflation.”SIMON WARD | HENDERSON“Half-point rise. The MPC’s forecast shows inflation 0.5 per cent above target in two years’ time. The economy is rebounding strongly in early 2011, wage settlements have firmed and broad money is growing faster.”GEORGE BUCKLEY | DEUTSCHE BANK“My view is for no change. While inflation has been well above target, the stalled recovery at the end of 2010 suggests it would be prudent to await the outcome of current quarter growth before raising rates.”MICHAEL SAUNDERS | CITIGROUP“Rates are likely to be hiked soon, prompted by rising inflation, elevated inflation expectations, the pick up in pay deals and signs that the economy returned to growth in the first quarter of the year.”VICKY REDWOOD | CAPITAL ECONOMICS“Leave interest rates on hold. The factors driving up inflation remain temporary. Rising oil prices add to the headwinds facing the economic recovery and increases the chances inflation will fall sharply further ahead.”TREVOR WILLIAMS | LLOYDS TSB“Price inflation is well above target but there’s little risk of a wage-price spiral. Deflationary forces are building. Bank rate must rise this year, but not until the second-half when some of the uncertainties abate.”HOWARD ARCHER | IHS GLOBAL INSIGHT“Hold rates. Weakening consumer spending and faltering service activity fuels concern over the economy’s underlying strength while current elevated oil prices will hamper economic activity. Caution is justified.”JAMIE DANNHAUSER | LOMBARD STREET RESEARCH“We side with the governor Mervyn King in the UK inflation debate. While risks are to the upside, we expect consumer price index inflation to fall below target in 2012. The time has not yet come to raise rates.”GRAEME LEACH | IOD“I would maintain the base rate of interest and leave quantitative easing unchanged. Money supply growth is too weak to contemplate higher base rates at present.” Wednesday 9 March 2011 7:49 pm whatsapp whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Share last_img read more

Soy Growers Take Sustainability Seriously

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Soy Growers Take Sustainability Seriously Previous articleChina Needs Supply-Side Agriculture ReformsNext articleBarriers to Greatness in Agriculture Andy Eubank Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Mar 8, 2016 Soy sustainabilityU.S. soybean farmers practice sustainability in order to survive and that’s a message they need to share with end users of their products who are growing more persistent in their demand for sustainably produced products. Mike Beard from Frankfort, Indiana is a director on the United Soybean Board who manned their trade show booth at Commodity Classic last week. USB’s goal was to make sure farmers understand the sustainability link to their bottom line.“Sustainability impacts our bottom line in a subtle way in that our customers, our end users are serving their customers and those customers are asking them about the sustainability aspects of the soybean that they’re buying,” he explained. “So without that ability to claim sustainability our market share has the potential to lose customers.”Beard told HAT he spent time with growers making sure they know in what ways they are sustainable.“Things as simple as crop rotation, as reduced tillage, no-till, pest management, nutrient management, the record keeping that we’re all forced to do today. Most of the farmers we talked to today have yield monitors or more technology in their equipment. The guidance systems also relate to our sustainability by not over applying pesticides and other chemicals. And then our overall conservation attitude of all of us who are U.S. soy producers.”Beard also said the multiple visits each year to the Farm Service Agency offices serve to document certain sustainability efforts by the nation’s farmers. His message is pay attention to your sustainability on the farm because when the market goes away prices suffer.

New code of conduct lets Pakistani journalists … censor themselves

first_img Receive email alerts News News Called the Electronic Media (Programmes and Advertisements) Code of Conduct 2015, it is clearly designed to increase censorship of radio and TV programmes, which are already subject to close control.Consisting of a series of very restrictive provisions, the code combines rules of a professional ethical nature with other rules that limit the ability of journalists to comment on or criticize Islam, the judicial authorities and the armed forces.When deemed necessary, the media will also have to replace live broadcasting with delayed broadcasting to permit the removal of content that violates the directives. The code does not provide the media with a list of subjects that cannot be broadcast live, leaving it to them to decide what should be censored.As the new code does not explicitly mention sanctions, Pakistani journalists – who were at no time consulted during its drafting – fear that this omission could lead to completely arbitrary reprisals similar to those taken against Geo TV and its journalists.“The imposition of such a draconian code is unacceptable as it leaves a permanent threat hanging over Pakistan’s radio and TV stations,” said Christophe Deloire secretary-general Christophe Deloire.“The vague and imprecise character of some of the code’s provisions opens the way to drastic self-censorship by the Pakistani media on anything to do with Islam and other religions, and other matters that are fundamental to Pakistani society. The only leeway allowed to Pakistan’s journalists is in the selection of the content to be censored.”This rag-bag code, which also aims to protect minors and restrict incitement to violence, includes provisions that allow the authorities to censor any content that attacks “Islamic values, ideology of Pakistan or founding fathers of the nation” (article 3.1.a) or “derogatory remarks about any religion” (article 3.1.d).These concepts are vague and therefore dangerous. The same goes for the provision calling on the media not to cast “aspersions against the judiciary or armed forces” (article 3.1.j).The code also restricts coverage of “ongoing security operations” (article 8.8) or reporting the “number of victims” (article 8.7) during security or rescue operations unless previously authorized. The media must also “ensure that coverage of the activities in conflict zones are carried out in accordance with the guidelines issued by the concerned law enforcement agencies” (article 8.10).Pakistan is ranked 159th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. Pakistani TV anchor censored after denouncing violence against journalists Reporters Without Borders is concerned about the restrictive nature of a new code of conduct for radio and TV stations that was drafted by the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA), an information ministry offshoot, and took effect on 20 August.

Basic questions still unanswered during Dink trial’s 11th hearing

A Turkish journalist of Armenian origin, Dink was gunned down outside his newspaper in Istanbul on 19 January 2007.“In hearing after hearing, the same fundamental questions remain, including the existence of a political will at the highest level to expose the truth in a case whose ramifications could turn it into a major government scandal,” Reporters Without Borders said. “But one thing is now clearly established, namely the danger that the ultranationalist discourse and ideology of hate pose to Turkish society in its entirety. This danger has clearly not gone away.” The press freedom organisation added: “This is also evidenced by the fact that in the past four years, some 200 Turkish intellectuals, journalists, publishers and dissidents have been tried under criminal code article 301 on charges of humiliating Turkish identity or insulting state institutions, meaning the army, police and judicial system.” For the first time since the start of the trial in July 2007, the alleged murder weapon was displayed in court. Judge Erkan Canak showed it to the defendants. Two of them, Ogün Samast, the youth who has confessed to shooting Dink, and Yasin Hayal, who allegedly supplied him with the gun, said they recognised it. During the hearing, lawyers representing the Dink family reiterated their concern about the murkier aspects of the case. They asked for the case to be linked to two other ongoing investigations and said evidence from these two other investigations should be shared with the Dink trial. One is the investigation into the ultranationalist conspiracy known as Ergenekon, and the other is the investigation into the 2007 murder of three protestant missionaries in the eastern city of Malatya.One of the Dink family lawyers, Fethiye Çetin, asked for the court to be given the testimony of one of the Ergenekon defendants, Sevgi Erenerol, a young woman who is the spokesperson of the (ultranationalist) Turkish Orthodox Church. Erenerol, who supported the article 301 prosecutions brought against Dink, mentioned meetings with senior armed forces personnel at which the presence of protestant missionaries in Turkey was referred to as a “danger.”The prosecutors in charge of the Ergenekon case are already supposed to provide Judge Canak with documents concerning another of the defendants, Durmus Ali Özoglu, whose statements tend to confirm the existence of a plan to “psychologically destabilise” Turkey. It is for investigating the Ergenekon conspiracy and the failure of the security forces to prevent Dink’s murder that Nedim Sener, a journalist with the daily Milliyet, is being prosecuted over an article published in February and a book entitled “The Dink murder and intelligence agency lies.”He is facing a possible 32-year jail sentence (more than the 20-year terms that Dink’s alleged murderers could get) on charges of publishing confidential information, trying to pervert the course of justice, insulting a police officer and three senior intelligence officers and exposing the intelligence officers to “attacks by terrorist organisations.”The Dink family lawyers also insisted during this hearing on the need to continue efforts to identify all the people involved in the Dink murder. In particular, they called for an investigation into the statements made to a special parliamentary commission by the current head of intelligence in Ankara, Ramazan Akyürek, who used to be police chief in Trabzon, the city where most of the defendants come from. Akyürek told the commission he had been aware of a plan to kill Dink.During this hearing, the US software and Internet company Microsoft was asked to provide the court with transcripts of the MSN Messenger conversations of one of the defendants, Erhan Tuncel, who was a Trabzon police informer.Several international observers attended the hearing, including Vincent Nioré, Alexandre Couyoumdjian and Mathieu Brochier, three Paris bar association lawyers who are following the trial at the behest of bar president Christian Charrière-Bournazel. It was the third consecutive hearing they have attended. They said their Paris bar association mandate to observe the trial and support the Dink family and its lawyers has been extended until 2011.In response to a journalist’s question, they said they have not been received by the head of the Istanbul bar association, Muammer Aydin, who has said in the past that he is not happy with the interest the Paris bar association is taking in the trial as it “means that too much importance is being attached to Hrant Dink’s Armenian identity.” The observers also included European Parliament member Hélène Flautre, who is joint chairperson of the Turkey-EU mixed commission, Ali Yurttagül, an adviser to the European Greens, Eugene Schoulgin, international secretary of International PEN, and two representatives of Norwegian PEN, Lin Stensrud and Trine Kleven.last_img read more
