And then once it’s all complete, the corporate areas are in, it must be £300m.”Gold and Sullivan together own 61 per cent of the East End outfit, which they bought last year in deals that priced the club at around £100m. An increase in its value to £300m would see the combined worth of their stake rocket from £60m to £180m.The estimate relies on West Ham avoiding relegation, and on the government and Mayor of London rubber-stamping their move to the stadium. whatsapp Tags: NULL whatsapp Show Comments ▼last_img read more

By August 2016, that number had reached 160,000, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.The U.S. response to the crisis has largely been one of increasing security at the border, detention and interdiction by Mexico, of minors and families seeking refuge in the United States. In 2015, Mexico intercepted and returned 200,000 Salvadorans, Guatemalans and Hondurans to the Northern Triangle, a region that suffered 17,500 violent deaths in that same year.These deterrence policies are not working, said Donald M. Kerwin Jr., executive director of the Center for Migration Studies, during a Sept. 20 Shadow Summit to examine the United States’ response to the Central American migrant crisis that has for years been unfolding in its backyard. (Read a report on the Central American Humanitarian Crisis and US Policy Responses here.)The Sept. 20 Shadow Summit came one day after a historic United Nations summit where world leaders adopted the New York Declaration, a document that commits countries around the world to protect the rights of refugees and migrants and to share the responsibility for the record number of people on the move.Noah Bullock, executive director of Cristosal, an El Salvador-based human rights organization with roots in the Episcopal and Anglican churches, participated in one of two panel discussions during the Shadow Summit and talked about the reasons people continue to flee violence in the Northern Triangle.It’s “first a failure of protection,” said Bullock, who was in New York to attend the U.N. summit to advocate for the rights of migrants and refugees. “Guatemala and El Salvador continue to deny that violence is the cause of displacement.”Honduras has recognized it, but continues to struggle with how to address it, he added.Another reason people continue to flee is that governments criminalize the displaced, associating them with the gang members who have committed violence and threatened violence against them, he said.Ultimately, he said, the decision to flee is a “human decision with multiple causes,” influenced by the individual’s and families’ perception of the threat level and the perception of the state’s ability to protect them.On Sunday, Sept. 17, Bullock spoke to the Diocese of Pennsylvania’s Committee for Central American Migrants and Refugees at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Chestnut Hill.“Cristosal’s leadership on the Central American refugee situation is the direct result of its grassroots network of supporters in the Episcopal Church,” said Bullock. “Their commitment to us and our mission allows us to be a nimble and independent human rights organization that initiates responses to immediate problems on the ground, not [only] when grant funds become available.”It is that support that has allowed Cristosal to take the lead in protecting the rights of people forcibly displaced by violence. Cristosal has worked to establish legal precedents for the protection of victims displaced by violence in El Salvador, provides shelter, protection and legal assistance for victims and is working to build regional resettlement capacity.“We were able to implement pilot programs and build a model for working [with displaced people] that now is being identified by the United Nations High Commission for Refugees and by the U.S. Government as good models for expansion. And we have now been awarded grants by both those organizations to do what we are doing in El Salvador, and begin to expand those models into Honduras and Guatemala,” said Bullock in his presentation in Pennsylvania.Cristosal also founded and coordinates the Civil Society Working Group Against Forced Displacement by Violence, the leading national body in El Salvador advocating for the rights of those forcibly displaced by violence. The working group maintains the largest existing database of cases of forced displacement and regularly publishes reports and policy recommendations for both civil society and state entities.The Episcopal and Anglican churches are present in the three Northern Triangle countries: The Diocese of Honduras belongs to Province IX of the Episcopal Church, and the dioceses of Guatemala and El Salvador belong to the Anglican Church of the Central Region of America, known by its Spanish acronym, IARCA.In November 2015, Cristosal brought together Anglican and Episcopal bishops from the region, as well as human rights ombudsmen to discuss a regional approach to forced displacement.The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in October 2015 warned of the “looming refugee crisis” emanating from Central America.Also on Sept. 20, President Barack Obama co-hosted a Leaders’ Summit on Refugees, alongside Canada, Ethiopia, Germany, Jordan, Mexico and Sweden. The leaders’ summit appealed to governments to pledge increased commitments to resettle refugees. Obama’s remarks are here.Worldwide, war and persecution have forced a total of 65.3 million people, 21.3 million of them refugees, from their homes, four times more than a decade ago and the largest number of people displaced since World War II.“It’s easy for us to look across the ocean and say the problem is over there, but the truth is that we have a refugee crisis right here in our hemisphere,” said Olympia Bishop Greg Rickel, who serves on Cristosal’s board, in a recent video that addresses the Central American crisis.The Northern Triangle is one of the most violent places in the world, said Rickel. “Last year, 700,000 people were displaced from their homes by violence and 17,500 people were killed.”Of the 85,000 refugees projected for resettlement in the United States in 2016, 3,000 were expected to come from Latin America and the Caribbean.— Lynette Wilson is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Funded by the Florida Department of Children and Families and managed by Embrace Families, it has helped older teens in foster care obtain 500 driver’s licenses and 1,000 learner’s permits.Thousands of 16- and 17-year-olds currently reside in Florida’s foster care system. It has historically been difficult for them to get driver’s licenses. Only 20 young adults in the system held their license … that is until Keys to Independence was introduced. In the program, Embrace Families helps children as young as 15 by enrolling them in driver’s education courses, providing driving lessons and monitoring their progress until they earn a license. It also reimburses expenses for each child’s car insurance, which averages about $300-400 a month, as well as other fees associated with the licensure process.“Our goal is to help children in foster care successfully transition to adulthood by eliminating barriers that prevent them from driving,” said Glen Casel, president and CEO of Embrace Families, the region’s leading nonprofit organization overseeing foster care, adoption and other child welfare services. “Keys to Independence has had an immediate impact, empowering our young people and their foster parents.”Embrace Families is working with several government and nonprofit agencies, driver’s education programs across the state, as well as the private sector, to significantly increase the number of children in foster care with driver’s licenses.“Being able to drive to school and work helps children in foster care achieve self-sufficiency,” added Casel. “Positioning children for success in all stages of life is one of our primary goals, and this program is a prime example of how we’re fulfilling our mission to protect and inspire every child, every day.”For more information, visit Embrace FamiliesAs the region’s lead nonprofit agency overseeing foster care, adoption and other child welfare services in Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties, Embrace Families, formerly known as Community Based Care of Central Florida, serves more than 8,000 children and their families.

All proceeds from the evening will be evenly split between the two charities, both of which are trying everyday to improve the lives of young people in the UK and the developing world.The Ball includes a champagne reception, gourmet four course dinner, dancing, entertainment, raffle and a host of fantastic auction prizes. These include a trip to Barcelona to meet Lewis Hamilton at a McLaren Formula One test day and the chance to become a star of the big screen in the next film by the award winning director of Bend it like Beckham, Gurinder Chadha OBE.Sense International works in the developing world to help people who are both deaf and blind to live full and active lives. The charity is celebrating its ten year anniversary having set up their first programme in India a decade ago, and now provides support to more than 30,000 deafblind people in ten countries. In 2007 Hilton in the Community Foundation used their disaster relief fund to award £50,000 to Sense International’s East Africa programme, the first award of this kind by the Foundation for ongoing international work.Jeremy Charles, Chairman of Sense International said:“This ball represents a wonderful culmination to the partnership between Sense International and Hilton in the Community Foundation and we are enormously proud to have been the first recipient of an international award from the Foundation. The grant could not have been made for a more worthy cause.Children born deaf and blind in the developing world face unbelievable challenges but we know that with the right support a deafblind child can learn to communicate and flourish just like any other child. In our first decade, Sense International’s pioneering, innovative solutions have established infrastructure in some of the poorest countries in the world where previously there was nothing available.Many thousands of children are still waiting for Sense International’s help – without help four out of five of these children will die before their fifth birthday. Donations from The Waldorf Ball in aid of Sense International will help us to reach them. In these difficult economic times, we must not forget that support for these marginalised children has never been more urgent.”The charitable partnership has already made a big difference to many lives in Kenya as part of Sense International’s East Africa Programme. Working closely with Hilton Nairobi, 12 teachers have been trained, 41 deafblind children have been identified and professionally assessed, 60 deafblind children are now receiving services and 17 have had school transport secured for them to the Kilimani Primary School, the only day school with deafblind children in the country.Simon Vincent, Hilton Area President Europe said:“We are delighted to be partnering with Sense International for their 10th anniversary. During more challenging times it’s absolutely crucial that big businesses continue to support charities, whose work becomes even more important. The Foundation is focussed on its mission to support young people who are at a disadvantage; whether through their health or access to educational opportunities so many of us take for granted. Hilton Hotels has committed to and invested in the Foundation as we see it as a superb way of giving back to the communities in which we operate.”There are still a limited number of tickets available for The Waldorf Hilton Ball.

Ryan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for May 2, 2017

first_img Dry for Tuesday and most of Wednesday, although clouds will continue to rotate through the region off and on today. Temps remain cooler than normal over the entire state. WE should start to see temps moderate some tomorrow.Rains push into southwest Indiana tomorrow late afternoon and evening and expand north for Thursday. Our forecast had kept moisture mostly south of I-70. Models now look to push that moisture farther north Thursday and through Friday, bringing 90% coverage to the state with rain totals of .25”-1.25”. This is looking to become a much bigger threat to the state and will keep the northern half of the state from seeing a longer streak of back to back to back dry days. In fact, we can see this moisture linger in parts of the state into Friday night.Saturday we still have a weak wave moving through that can bring an additional few hundredths to .25” over about 60% of the state.Models have taken moisture out of midweek next week. We are going to leave our forecast alone right now, looking for rains next Wednesday. They have the potential to be larger rains. We want to see how the pattern unfolds. Right now, we think that if there is a push north of rain the second half of this week, that will actually set us up with better potential to see rains come in with a front midweek next week.Right now there looks to be very little next drying over the next 10 days.

Farmland Values Plummet in Purdue’s August Land Value Survey

first_img Facebook Twitter Farmland Values Plummet in Purdue’s August Land Value Survey The August 2019 Purdue Land Value Survey, published in the Purdue Agricultural Economics Report (PAER) by the Department of Agricultural Economics, lays out changes in farmland values and cash rents.Craig Dobbins, professor of agricultural economics and the survey’s author, said both farmland values and cash rents are down across the state of Indiana. The decline indicates changes are still occurring because of the tight margins in crop production.“It’s the same story we’ve been hearing for the last couple of years: Current returns are not sufficient to support the current level of farmland values and cash rents,” Dobbins said. “We’re still seeing tight margins, low crop prices and continued fallout from a trade war with China. The future just isn’t looking too bright right now.”According to the survey, top quality and average quality farmland decreased in value from last year by 5.3% and 0.9%, respectively. Poor quality farmland remained stable with almost no change on a statewide basis.Cash rents also experienced a decline. In 2018, the statewide average increased for all land qualities. This survey reported a decline across all land qualities. Top quality farm land experienced a 4.6 percent decline in cash rents, followed by a 1.4% and 1.2% decline in average and poor quality farmland, respectively.“An interesting thing about these results is what’s happening to good quality farmland,” Dobbins said. “Frequently, you hear top quality farmland is better at retaining its value than poor quality, but that’s not been the case this year.”Before this year, the decline from 2014 peak in farmland values had supported the conventional wisdom. While farmers have experienced financial strain for several years, Dobbins said future expectations also help shape a farmland buyer’s view of how easy it will be to pay for a farmland purchase. There is increased uncertainty associated with important drivers in the farmland market.“Buying farmland is about what’s going to happen in the future, not what’s currently happening,” Dobbins said. “Many buyers have enough to make the down payment but will need to borrow to complete the transaction. Increased uncertainty about the future increases buyer caution.” By Ashley Davenport – Aug 26, 2019 Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Farmland Values Plummet in Purdue’s August Land Value Survey Previous articleUSDA: Slightly Better Corn, Soybean RatingsNext articleProgress Made on Trade at G-7 Summit with Japan, China Ashley Davenportlast_img read more

Reporters Without Borders welcomes a supreme court ruling on newspaper law

first_img RSF calls for the release of South Korean journalist jailed for defamation June 30, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Reporters Without Borders welcomes a supreme court ruling on newspaper law RSF_en News November 19, 2020 Find out more News On eve of the G20 Riyadh summit, RSF calls for public support to secure the release of jailed journalists in Saudi Arabia November 11, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders welcomed a South Korean supreme court decision which ruled as unconstitutional some articles of the law on the press and on media arbitration.”We expressed our fears after the adoption of this controversial law. We are reassured by the supreme court decision which is based on the crucial and absolute protection of press freedom,” the international press freedom organisation said.“We call on the deputies of the ruling party and the government to definitively withdraw the draconian articles in the law,” it added.On 29 June 2006, the constitutional court blocked the application of some measures in the Act Governing the Guarantee of Freedom and Functions of Newspapers which had been adopted by parliament on 1st January 2005. This verdict follows an appeal lodged by the leading conservative South Korean newspapers. The government announced on the same day that it would respect the verdict.The judges voted by seven to two that the law sought by the ruling Uri party was contrary to press freedom and business freedom, guaranteed by the constitution, in that they limited the market share a newspaper could obtain. “We don’t see any particular danger, because readers can freely decide which newspaper they want to read,” said the judges. Currently, the three conservative dailies, Chosun Ilbo, Dong-a Ilbo and JoongAng Ilbo account for more than 70 % of the written press market. Chosun Ilbo alone has 30 % of the readership.In the same way, parliament will have to amend an article of the law which banned newspaper owners from holding more than 50% of the shares in another print or electronic media.On the other hand, the supreme court confirmed the validity of the articles which oblige media to provide more transparent information about their financial activities and particularly on their revenue from advertising. The right of individuals to demand corrections in the press was also confirmed. In July 2005, Reporters Without Borders had said it was closely watching how the law on newspapers would be applied. The organisation particularly expressed reservations on the vague concept of the “social responsibility” of the media, included in Articles 4 and 5.

Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. Make a comment Gov. Gavin Newsom Friday unveiled a four-tier, color-coded system that will use daily coronavirus case numbers and positivity rates to guide counties’ ability to reopen businesses, a process he said will take a slow and more stringent approach to economic reopening.“COVID-19 will be with us for a long time and we need to adapt,” Newsom said. “… We must deal with this reality and this fundamental truth until there is a vaccine, until we have the kind of therapeutics that could substantially mitigate the spread and the impact of COVID-19, that we will simply need to adapt our behaviors until that time.”The change did not appear to have any immediate impact on businesses in Los Angeles County. The adjustment does allow barbershops and hair salons — which are currently restricted to outdoor operations — to reopen indoors with safety precautions starting Monday, but local health officials would have to sign off on that change first.The four-tier system replaces the state’s coronavirus monitoring list, which was being used to gauge individual counties’ success in controlling the spread of COVID-19. Counties on the monitoring list — including Los Angeles and Riverside — were heavily restricted in terms of allowable business operations, while counties not on the list — including Orange and San Diego — were given more leeway to reopen economic sectors and even schools.Newsom called the new system a “more dynamic list that we hope is not only more dynamic but much more simple to understand.”The monitoring list relied on six criteria — new case rates, positivity rates, testing capacity, hospitalization numbers and availability of intensive-care unit beds and ventilators.The new system, however, relies on two metrics: the daily rate of new cases per 100,000 residents, and the seven-day average rate of positive tests. Based on those numbers, counties are filtered into one of four tiers:• counties with more than seven new cases per 100,000 residents and a positivity rate of more than 8% are in the purple (“widespread”) category;• counties with four to seven new cases per 100,000 and a positivity rate between 5% and 8% are in the red (“substantial”) category;• counties with one to 3.9 new cases per 100,000 and a positivity rate from 2% to 4.9% are in the orange (“moderate”) category; and• counties with less than one new case per 100,000 and a positivity rate less than 2% are in the yellow (“minimal”) category.Of California’s 58 counties, 38 are now listed in the purple, or “widespread,” category, which Newsom equated to being on the previous monitoring list. Although Orange County recently fell off the monitoring list, it was placed in the purple category because the new system only allows counties to move between tiers every 21 days, and counties must meet statistical criteria for at least 14 days before moving into a new category.For Orange County, the change means a likely delay in the possible reopening of school campuses for in-person instruction.Los Angeles and Riverside counties both fall into the purple category. San Diego County is in the less-restrictive red category.As counties move down the list of risk categories, restrictions on business operations are slowly eased.In conjunction with the switch, the state revised its website,, on which people can enter their county and choose an economic sector. The website will then tell the user what category the county is in and provide information about what businesses are open and what types of restrictions they must adhere to.
