Middle row: J Haining, Z Muir, R Orr, G Brown, A Swan, J Bredin, J Brackenridge. Front row: F Smith, J Maclean, C Simpson, C Dean (capt), A Glashan, C Thomson, R SeydakEdinburgh Academy held off the challenges of Gower College, Woodhouse Grove, Tregib CS and Sedbergh after beating George Watson’s 12-11 in the Brewin Dolphin U18 Scottish Schools Cup final. It crowned a wonderful term’s rugby for the XV and their No 8 Chris Dean, who led his side to their 14th successive win.Hugely impressive wins over Robert Gordon’s and Merchiston Castle – wing Freddie Smith grabbing four tries in the latter tie – took them to Murrayfield.In front of a big Saturday crowd, they beat their old Edinburgh rivals by the smallest of margins after trailing 3-0 at half-time. The critical spell came when Smith and full-back Rory Orr crossed for tries when Watson’s had a man in the sin-bin, centre Alex Swan adding a vital conversion.Winners and runners-up in the past two U18 finals, the Academy had eight old colours and five players from last year’s winning U16 side and the experience gained proved important in the frenetic exchanges in the final.The Academy possessed strength all over the pitch but it was the pack’s back five of Chris Thomson, Jamie Maclean, Cameron and Rory Simpson, and Dean that was the key to success.Half-backs Alex Glashan and Alexander Muir combined wonderfully whilst the backs were not only quick in attack but defended extremely well.Click here to see October’s School Team of the Month This article appeared in the February 2012 issue of Rugby World Magazine.

Changes Ahead for Agriculture on Immigration and Trade

first_img By Gary Truitt – Feb 2, 2017 Changes Ahead for Agriculture on Immigration and TradeYou would have to be living under a rock to not know about the public uproar over immigration and refugees in the U.S. This is just one of the changes facing agriculture in 2017. One of the cornerstones of President Trump’s campaign was immigration.  In his first few days in office, he has taken steps to address not only the refugee issue but the immigration issue.Chuck ConnerChuck Conner, with the National Association of Farmer Co-operatives, recently told the Agribuisness Council of Indiana that 70% of the labor force in agriculture are undocumented workers. As a result, this is an issue in which agriculture has to be involved, “We hope there will be no across-the-board policy that will just send home agricultural workers, if they are good workers and have not been in any kind of trouble.” He said such a move would be devastating to the U.S. food supply.  He also hopes some kind of a guest worker program can be implemented, “We certainly hope we can get a legal workforce for agriculture in place in the future.”Another issue that keeps Conner up at night is trade.  He worries about some of the statements being made by the Trump White House, “Every time we have a trade dispute with another country, they retaliate against agriculture.” He added, if the U.S. gets into a tiff with China, for example, it will be soybeans that get hurt.  Conner supports the President’s efforts to bring manufacturing jobs back to the U.S. He said this could help bring jobs back to rural America. While new trade deals may help solve some existing trade problems, Conner says agriculture must be engaged in these negotiations to protect our interests.Jay VroomJay Vroom, with Crop Life America, told the ACI conference there is a lot of talk about the Farm Bill and the safety net, but the real focus needs to be on building demand, “We have not done enough, in my opinion, over the last 30 years to build demand for U.S. agricultural products.” He said we need to spend more time thinking about that.Both men agreed that the new administration will bring more good things than bad for agriculture, but that we face some very challenging times over the next few months.

Heavy-handed treatment of media as opposition politician tries to return from exile

first_img Help by sharing this information June 2, 2021 Find out more RSF_en News Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières) lambasted Pakistan for its heavy-handed treatment of the media as journalists tried to cover an attempted return from exile by opposition politician Shahbaz Sharif, brother of ex-Prime minister Nawaz Sharif.Intense official pressure was brought to bear on private ARY Digital TV, a CNN journalist was arrested and police reacted violently to journalists trying to cover the event in Lahore, it said.”The way in which the Pakistani authorities tried to hide the return of this opposition politician shows the Pakistan governments’ lack of openness in free expression and democracy in general,” the international press freedom organisation said in a letter to information and broadcasting minister, Sheikh Rashid Ahmed.The organisation demanded an explanation for the pressure applied to the privately-owned media to stop them covering the event and called for punishment of police who manhandled journalists in Lahore.ARY Digital TV at the last moment on 9 May pulled an interview with Shahbaz Sharif, president of the opposition PML (N) party, intended to mark his return from exile. Executives of the British-based channel said the decision was the result of “huge government pressure”. The presenter gave no explanation but said, “We believe in freedom of expression.”Police on 11 May placed producer Syed Mohsin Naqvi, of the US cable channel CNN in Pakistan under house arrest to prevent him interviewing Shahbaz Sharif. The security forces used the pretext of a bomb alert to enter his Lahore home without permission.Also on 11 May police prevented journalists from reaching Lahore international airport in the east of the country to witness the politician’s return. Reporters, including a BBC crew, who travelled in the same plane with Sharif, were arrested, questioned searched or roughly treated by commandos who surrounded the plane after landing.Police manhandled Zafar Abbas, BBC correspondent in Islamabad, and took his passport and journalistic equipment. He and a BBC cameraman were then put into a police van for one hour. Police also seized a video cassette. to go further A journalist on an English-language daily and a reporter from an Urdu daily were beaten at a police checkpoint at the airport entrance. Secret service agents deployed to pick out journalists in the airport zone. Security forces also checked and harassed opposition supporters in Lahore to forestall any pro-Sharif demonstrations. Sharif himself was expelled to Saudi Arabia after spending less than two hours in Pakistan.

School Nutrition expands meal program

first_img School Nutrition expands meal program Pinterest TAGS  Previous articleIsy’s Fine Jewelry wins downtown decorating contestNext articleCovid-19 Vaccine for Christmas Digital AIM Web Support Twitter Pinterest Twitter By Digital AIM Web Support – December 24, 2020 center_img Facebook Facebook EducationECISDLocal News WhatsApp WhatsApp To reach an estimated 13,000 remote learners, the Ector County ISD School Nutrition Department plans to expand its meal delivery service Jan. 4.  Brandon Reyes, the department director, said they have been using volunteers to deliver a week’s worth of meals for remote and hybrid learners. “We’re starting to see that we have an increase in families requesting and that kind of exceeded our volunteer capability,” Reyes said. At its Dec. 15 meeting, the ECISD Board of Trustees approved a contract with Texas To Go, LLC for an estimated cost of $125,000 to deliver meals. The funder listed in supplemental agenda material is the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Currently, Reyes said the school nutrition department is serving about 113 families, which is roughly 277 children and just under 4,000 meals per week. He added that were looking to onboard 39 additional families adding about 90 children. “So that will increase our meals to about 5,100 meals. … The USDA has those flexibilities that they extended for this school year. With that, we’re able to do this and so we just think it will be important because there are a ton of kids out there that we just haven’t reached,” Reyes said. “We want to do everything we can to at least offer them the opportunity to take the meals.” Each child between the ages of 1 and 18 will get seven breakfast and seven lunch meals each delivery. “It’s an amazing thing, so our participation is limited to those who are interested. The big idea is that we get the word out to the families so that they’re aware of our program and then we onboard them so there’s a little bit of a process to that. It’s actually pretty easy, but once we do that then they’re set up they’ll (receive) the contactless delivery” on a certain day of the week, Reyes said. He added that it’s “super beneficial.” “We’re a universal free feeding district. These meals aren’t (just) for those who are considered economically disadvantaged. This is available to all … We do see that there is some hesitation with some families not wanting to participate because they feel maybe they don’t want to take meals from those who they consider really need it, maybe more … than them. That’s never the case with us because … this is our bread and butter. We have a ton of inventory. We … have enough food on hand to be able to serve them as the volume increases.” Reyes said volunteers will still be used to deliver meals. “Our volunteers have been wonderful in that they’ve chosen to volunteer because they want to help and they’ll absolutely be able to help as often as they would like,” Reyes said. “We’re not going to restrict that at all. We’re basically going to expand our partnership so that as we increase in families, we’ll better be able to serve them on a daily basis. They’ve been pivotal to our program this semester so we absolutely welcome them to continue doing the great work that they do.” Renee Earls, president/CEO of the Odessa Chamber of Commerce, said in a text message that they have eight to nine employees who volunteer weekly. “Many of our events have been cancelled due to COVID, so we’ve had some time to dedicate to this service. I’m glad ECISD is expanding the program to reach more students,” Earls stated. School Nutrition offers daily curbside sites and Friday evening curbside, but Reyes said they are still not reaching enough families. “So we’re trying to do more. It just, unfortunately, takes a little bit of additional time to get it set up. Ideally, we would have liked to set this up much, much sooner. But so many factors came into play. We had to make sure that USDA was going to keep the flexibilities for the rest of the school year. That’s the biggest driver because if they would have stopped the flexibilities half way through the school year, then we would have started something that we would have had to have stopped. It makes it much more difficult, so we just needed to make sure there was some certainty so that we could make the moves we needed to,” Reyes said. He said the department had planned to provide meals over Christmas break as it did for Thanksgiving. A full week’s worth of meals were provided Dec. 17 and will be again Dec. 27, the department’s Twitter account says for children between 1 and 18. “Once again, it’s a testament to our team and their dedication to the needs of the community. When we say needs of the community; it’s those of all ranges. Those making zero dollars a year to $100,000 a year. It does not matter. We’re here to help feed whoever would like to be fed between the ages of 1 and 18, so we’re going to do our part. We hope people take advantage of it. It’s a wonderful thing,” Reyes said. The food families get is the same as they would get at school and includes heating instructions.last_img read more

Southern Surge Leads Record Home Sales Forecast

first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Southern Surge Leads Record Home Sales Forecast 19 days ago 479 Views The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Related Articles Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Share Save A new analysis by Redfin has found that, for the calendar year 2021, a record $2.53 trillion worth of home sales will transact in America—a 17% year-over-year gain and the largest annual increase in percentage terms since 2013.Fueled by record-low rates, strong demand, and a wave of migration made possible by remote work, the market comes into a strong spring season after suffering some weather-related setbacks to start the year. These factors helped March become the hottest month in housing history, with home values, price growth and selling speed all hitting new heights.”We expect 2021 to be an even more active year for the housing market than 2020 because homebuyers have a better sense of what the future looks like,” said Redfin Chief Economist Daryl Fairweather. “Employers are providing clarity on permanent remote-work policies, the economy is recovering and mortgage rates remain low. All of these factors mean that we’ll likely see even more buyers enter the market this year and in 2022.”According to Fairweather, home prices could grow more slowly if mortgage rates rise, resulting in a more balanced housing market, which could actually lead to more home sales.The Southern part of the U.S. is expected to lead the charge, with $1.09 trillion of home sales forecast for 2021, followed by the West with $696.3 billion, the Midwest with $422.6 billion, and the Northeast with $322.8 billion.Fairweather noted that the South has consistently held the top spot, but has inched further ahead in recent years, likely because it has more vacant land on which to build, and has attracted scores of out-of-town homebuyers who are in search of affordability and space.And proof of a rising market in the South is evident in markets such as Atlanta, where Redfin Real Estate Agent Andrew Kolodey unprecedented bidding wars.“Offering above a seller’s asking price was never the norm in Atlanta like it was on the West Coast, but now it is. Today, it’s typical for a buyer to bid $50,000 or $70,000 over the list price in order to win,” said Kolodey. “We’ve never experienced this level of competition. A bidding war here used to mean up to five offers. Now it means 15 to 20 offers.” Eric C.
