The High Court has initiated contempt proceedings with respect to such posts and has ordered CBI enquiry against YSRCP members for such defamatory posts.Protection of fundamental rights of citizens of AP has become difficultThe judge made a strong remark that the protection of fundamental rights of the citizens of Andhra Pradesh by the High Court has become difficult.”…in the present situation, which is prevailing in the State of Andhra Pradesh, with heavy heart, I may not refrain to record that protection of fundamental rights of citizens of the State of Andhra Pradesh by this Court has become very difficult”.Justice Kumar said that he has dealt with several writ petitions and habeas corpus pleas alleging illegal arrest and detention, police excesses, forcible dispossession etc.”One can draw an adverse inference against the acts/excesses by the police in the State of Andhra Pradesh”, the order mentioned.The order also observed :”…one can infer how the Government in the State of Andhra Pradesh is proceeding. Firstly, attack was made on Legislative Council, thereafter another Constitutional body, i.e., State Election Commission; and, now the High Court of Andhra Pradesh and even the Supreme Court is under attack by persons, who are in power”It may be recalled that Justice Rakesh Kumar was presiding the bench which sought to examine if there was a ‘breakdown of constitutional machinery’ in the state of AP. A division bench led by him converted the hearing on a batch of habeas corpus petitions and petitions alleging police excesses as a hearing on the issue whether there is a “constitutional breakdown” in the State of Andhra Pradesh. Though the State Government filed an application seeking recall of the order, the bench rejected it. The proceedings in that case have been stayed by the Supreme Court on an appeal made by the State Government. While issuing the stay order, the Chief Justice of India orally observed that the HC proceedings were ‘disturbing’.Collision course between High Court and State GovtThe High Court and the State Government are seemingly on a collision course. The High Court has interfered with many crucial decisions of the Jagan government such as the three capital move and the investigation into Amaravati land scam. The HC ordered a status quo on the three-capital decision and has stayed the SIT inquiry announced by the government into Amaravati land scam. In October, the Chief Minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy had shot off a letter to the Chief Justice of India alleging that few judges of the High Court were trying to destabilize the government by passing adverse orders against it on petitions filed by the TPD, the political opposition. The contents of the letter were publicized by the Secretary to the Chief Minister in a press conference.  Google search ‘Khaidi No. 6093’ for information about Chief MinisterJustice Rakesh Kumar, who was transferred from Patna High Court last year after he passed an order with critical observations against his colleagues there, made certain scathing observations against the Chief Minister.The judge mentioned in the order that he got “disturbing information” about the Chief Minster after searching “”Khaidi No.6093” in Google. Then the judge went on to extract the screenshots of newspaper reports about the corruption allegations against Jagan Mohan Reddy, which were returned after a Google search of “Khaidi No 6093”.”Till the publication of letter, dated 06.10.2020, of the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, I was not having much information about him. But, immediately thereafter, I became curious to know about him. Subsequently, I was told that if I go on site ‘Google’ and type only “Khaidi No.6093″, I can get many information. Accordingly, I did the same thing and thereafter I got very disturbing information. Some of such extracts I got downloaded are quoted herein below”, the judge said in the order.The order then went on to enumerate the 30 criminal cases pending against Jagan Reddy. It was noted that police has closed many cases citing lack of evidence. This, the judge said, reflected “how head of the Police, i.e., the Director General of Police, Government of Andhra Pradesh, is functioning as per the dictate of the Government, not in upholding rule of law in the State”.”Is it not a mockery with the system?”, the judge asked referring to the delay in the prosecution against the Chief Minister.”I am well aware that many of my observations made herein above may not be in consonance with the technicality, but since on the verge of my retirement, my impartiality has been questioned by the Government of Andhra Pradesh on my face in the present proceeding, in my defence, I was constrained to record above facts, which are based on record and may not be disputed. My only endeavour is to uphold the majesty of law”, the judge added.These observations were made by Justice Rakesh Kumar while rejecting an application made by the State Government seeking his recusal from a division bench hearing a case. The Additional Advocate General, Sudhakar Reddy, alleged in the application that Justice Kumar had taken a biased stand against the government. It was alleged in the application that Justice Kumar made an oral observation during a previous hearing that “We will declare there is break down of constitutional machinery in the State and hand over administration to the Central Government”. Certain newspaper reports were annexed with the application to support the allegation that the judge had made such oral remarks. However, Justice Kumar denied making any such remark and said that he was merely expressing doubts about the legality of the move of the government to auction public land for private bidders. He rejected the allegations of bias and came down heavily on the government for seeking his recusal.The judge rejected the recusal application by terming it an attempt to “malign the image of one of the members of the bench”.”If Court starts entertaining such petitions; in no case, the Court can be allowed to dispense justice. With a view to uphold the majesty of law and repose the confidence of citizen in the judicial system, such endeavour made by the State is considered as malicious and cannot be approved. If such petitions are entertained, it will amount to allowing the party for hunting the Bench. Such an action by the State was not expected, but in this State, as I have observed the circumstances herein above, everything can be possible. However, at the same time, the Court cannot be frightened by any such action of the State”.The application was filed on the basis of an affidavit on oath made by Mr. Pravin Kumar, Special Officer, Mission of A.P, I.T Towers, Mangalagiri, Guntur District/Mission Director, Mission Build Andhra Pradesh, Government of Andhra Pradesh.The allegations in the affidavit were discarded as “untrue” and “false” amounting to “perjury”.The bench ordered the initiation of criminal proceedings for perjury against the officer and issued show-cause notice for contempt action against him.Describing the recusal application as ‘astonishing’, the judge remarked :”For a while I was astonished with such behaviour of State but immediately thereafter, I perceived that bureaucrats of this State have been emboldened after apparent success of the Hon’ble Chief Minister of the State of Andhra Pradesh in addressing a letter to the Hon’ble the Chief Justice of India and making it public, making allegation against one of the senior Judges of Hon’ble Supreme Court, the Hon’ble Chief Justice of A.P High Court and number of sitting Judges of A.P High Court with their name”.Critical remarks against transfer proposalsThe judge also made critical observations against the proposals made by the Supreme Court collegium to transfer the Chief Justices of High Courts of AP and Telangana by drawing a connection between the transfer proposals and the bombastic letter shot by AP Chief Minster Jagan Mohan Reddy to the Chief Justice of India with allegations against the state judiciary.”People may draw an inference as if after the so called letter of Hon’ble Chief Minister, the two Chief Justices, i.e., Chief Justice of High Court for the State of Telangana and Chief Justice of High Court of AP have been transferred”, Justice Kumar observed(separate and detailed story on that aspect may be read here).Justice Rakesh Kumar was transferred from Patna High Court to Andhra Pradesh High Court last year. Shortly before his transfer to AP High Court, Justice Rakesh Kumar had created a furore in the Patna High Court by passing a direction for CBI investigation into alleged corruption in the subordinate judiciary. In that order, Justice Rakesh Kumar had made startling observations such as “corruption in this High Court is an open secret” and that “judges were more interested in enjoying privileges than administering justice”.Soon after that order, a 11-judge bench assembled to suspend it after observing that Justice Kumar’s observations as “judicial and administrative overreach”. He is retiring from service tomorrow.Click here to read/download the orderNext Storylast_img read more

Discussion Continues for Evansville Drag Queen Story Hour

first_imgDiscussion Continues for Evansville Drag Queen Story HourJANUARY 31st, 2019 MEGAN DIVENTI EVANSVILLE, INDIANA The Evansville Public Library plans to hold the first ever Drag Queen Story Hour next month. Following the first announcement, several protests, petitions, and heated discussions have taken place about whether it should be canceled.“I wanted a meeting because if I’m going to be held accountable for the direction the library is going then I think the appointees should get together and discuss what direction we feel we should take,” says Cheryl Musgrave, Vanderburgh County Commissioner.Vanderburgh County Commissioners have two appointees on the Library Board of Trustee, but one is currently open after the last appointee resigned.Andy Ozete stepped down earlier this month and now commissioners are figuring out how to fill the spot.“He was upset that he was denied the opportunity to vote on the program in question, but I don’t think that was the only issue that had upset him during his tenure,” says Musgrave.And the decision was tabled for the Commissioner to have more time to discuss the next appointee.“I just need a little bit more time to contemplate our various courses of action,” says Musgrave. “As I said on the record I want to talk to the other appointing bodies particularly the school corporation. And I’d like to talk to them about the direction that the library is going and does that meet our expectation or do we want a new direction.”Those who came out were vocal about the next steps.“I would like to respectfully request that a hearing, a public hearing be made for the other library board member that you as an appointing body are responsible for,” says one attendee.Commissioners reacted to the matter.“And I feel the library is going in the wrong direction and has for a while even without this very divisive issue and I resent that this very divisive issue has been visited upon our community,” says Musgrave.“It’s my opinion that the library administration the library board should vote to cancel this event if for any other reason public safety,” says Jeff Hatfield, Vanderburgh County Commissioner.Commissioner Musgrave says she would like to meet the proposed person.“This is an important decision and I just simply haven’t had enough time to take those actions,” says Musgrave.Commissioners say the library board won’t meet again before the commissioners next two meetings.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

World Cup ‘to honour Mandela’

first_img12 February 2010President Jacob Zuma, delivering his State of the Nation address in Cape Town on Thursday, called on South Africans to make the 2010 Fifa World Cup a success in honour of Nelson Mandela.Speaking during the opening of Parliament, Zuma said Mandela was central in assisting the country to win the rights to host this great event.Mandela was part of the delegation that presented South Africa’s bid to the Fifa executive, and was present on 15 May 2004 when Fifa president Sepp Blatter announced that South Africa had won the bid to host the World Cup.“We therefore have to make the World Cup a huge success in his honour,” Zuma said.Quoting from Mandela’s historic speech at the Rivonia treason trial, Zuma said all South Africans should recommit themselves to reconciliation, national unity, non-racialism and building a better future together.“Let us work together to make this year of action a successful one for our country.”World Cup: everything on trackWith under 120 days to go before the World Cup kicks off, Zuma said everything was on track for a successful event.“We have spent many years planning for this World Cup … The infrastructure, security and logistics arrangements are in place to ensure a successful tournament.”South Africans should get behind the national team, Bafana Bafana, but most important of all they should buy tickets now to attend the games, he said.The fourth round of ticket sales started this week, with over 400 000 tickets available on a first-come, first-served basis. The sale will run for 58 days and end on 7 April.Fans can apply for the tickets on www.fifa.com/2010 or (South African residents only) at FNB branches.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

Dairy farm economics not adding up

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest It has happened to every farmer.The production numbers are plugged into the calculator, and double-checked, but they just do not seem to be adding up quite right on the short side of profitability.These days many dairy producers are drinking a couple of extra glasses of milk to calm their nerves and enjoying an additional scoop of ice cream to take their minds off of the unpleasant budget realities on the farm.Lou Brown of New Bremen has been crunching the numbers on his dairy farm and does not like the numbers he is seeing.“We’re at $13 milk right now on our 275-cow herd with a 70-pound average. That is 19,250 pounds of milk a day. That is 192.50 hundredweights at $13 that comes to $2,502.50 a day in the value of the milk. At $7 a day per cow with 275 cows, that comes to $1,925 a day for my feed bill. That leaves me with $577 to pay all of the other expenses. If I had one hired person full time I would need 40 more cows to justify that one person,” Brown said. “My price goal to average over five years is $20 a hundredweight. Two years ago it was $26, but feed costs were higher then. The milk price actually went down to $9 in 2009, which has been the low in the last eight years.”At $10 per hundredweight it is $57,750 a month in income. At $15 milk, it is $86,625 in monthly income and at $20 it is $115,500 a month in income.“That milk price makes a huge difference in gross revenue for us,” Brown said. “You’re constantly on a price roller coaster.”The farm (like many others) has implemented numerous long-term strategies to handle the inevitable economic tough times inherent in production agriculture. Brownhaven Farm is all family labor. The Brown family has been on the land since 1959 when Lou’s parents bought it. It is now run by Lou, his brother, and Lou’s son.“We started with two cows and by the 70s we were up to 80 cows,” he said. “Today we have grown to 280 cows  — all Holstein. Our wives and children help as well.”The vast majority of milk from Brownhaven Farm goes to nearby Dannon and is marketed through DFA.“I don’t really see a premium but I am only three or four miles away and it doesn’t make sense to truck it anywhere else,” Brown said.Dannon is a very valuable local market, but has been requiring increasingly stringent requirements in recent years based on various consumer and industry demands, each adding costs along the way. In addition, Brown’s 250-acre farm is in both the Grand Lake St. Marys Watershed and in the Lake Erie watershed, the two most regulated watersheds in the state. This regulation also brings with it extra costs and challenges in the form of manure management and cover crops.“We raise half our hay and all of our corn silage,” Brown said. “All of our corn silage ground gets cover crop on it. I grow no soybeans, just corn and hay. The best ground stays in corn. I use an oats and radish mix which winter kills. My cost for just the oat seed is $1,500 on 150 acres.“I get government funding for cost share on the cover crops, but I have to match all of their guidelines to qualify. They have a cost share program. You could do it on your own but you will have $3,500 to $4,000 to put cover crops on 150 acres. And some cover crops are twice that cost. If I didn’t have cost share, it would be much harder to make the decision to do that. Maybe I would only do half the farm verses the whole farm. What is the value of the organic matter I’m getting, the erosion I am stopping and the runoff I am preventing? It does definitely help the corn yield too. Cover crops may be worth $4,000 a year, very easily, but they are also an extra cost.”The liquid manure lagoon storage for the farm is adequate to hold enough to apply in the spring before planting.“The majority of the time we apply lagoon manure before we plant corn. We either use a Miller disk or field cultivator before and after manure application. We knife it in and go over it again and then plant corn,” Brown said. “They want us to work the ground before we apply the lagoon manure to disturb the soil so it doesn’t have a direct route to the tile. The only other fertility I add is liquid 28% — 10 gallons at planting and 40 gallons an acre sidedress.”The Browns get the rest of their cattle feed needs met through neighboring farms to help control costs.“All of the corn for grain is bought from neighbors and we grind it here on the farm. We have our own bean extruder as well. All the wheat straw for bedding is grown by neighbors too — for the last 10 years we have been buying from neighbors. It makes more sense to buy from the neighbors then to go and pay $10,000 or $12,000 an acre for more ground,” Brown said. “We use our own equipment and labor to harvest the neighbor’s crops. We harvest earlage, silage and grain for grinding. We do everything on the hay. Usually first cutting is chopped for haylage and the rest is in big squares. We try for five cuttings.“This last weekend we chopped 92 acres of rye which gave us 600 tons of extra feed valued at $15,000. We had a neighbor who decided to put it out as cover and he let us chop it. It gave him an extra cash crop and we provided all the labor.”These and other practices help keep costs down when milk prices drop. Major purchases are made carefully during good times.“We don’t change a lot when milk prices are low, but we keep close tabs on expenses. We try to put off buying more expensive $5,000 to $10,000 investments or higher. We fix more things instead of investing in new,” Brown said. “You have to set your priorities every day and look at your goals. You might make mistakes, but you hope that doesn’t happen. For a dairy farm, a mistake could be as simple as what if milk from a treated cow went into the bulk tank that day. That is a costly mistake. You have to be careful to avoid those when times are tight.“If you need to expand or improve, do it in small amounts. Don’t try to do it all in one year. Hopefully the smart managers saved back $2 a hundredweight when it was over $20 for now when things are low.”And, at least for the immediate future, milk prices look to stay low.“Historically it is a seven to eight year cycle but it is anybody’s guess with the global market the way it is today. Changes in China or Russia impact our farm,” Brown said. “Mother Nature will either have to throw in a drought or we’ll have to wait for the school year to start so the volume of fluid milk will go up again.”A big production bump in Europe has helped build up a large global milk supply, according to John Newton, the Senior Director of Economic Research for the National Milk Producers Federation.“It will take time for us to work through the global inventory and one way to do that is through lower prices to the consumer. In the European Union they just removed the quota system and we’ve seen milk production in Europe increase significantly in the last year into the global market place. In the U.S., we export 12% to 15% of our milk production every year and we are exposed to what is happening internationally,” Newton said. “Farm prices are set based on wholesale commodity prices. When wholesale prices of cheese, or butter, or milk powders decrease, so too does the farm gate milk price. In this case, we have seen powder prices decline quite a bit, close to a dollar a pound. We have seen a dramatic decline in milk price from the highs in 2014.”As milk producers feel the pinch of low prices, milk processors enjoy strong profits.“Processors make money on the down side because their input costs are declining, but when input prices increase, they cannot turn around and raise their retail prices dramatically. There is an ebb and flow. End users need consistency. Pizza chains don’t change the price of their pizza on the menu every week as cheese prices change. They try to have a fixed price menu item,” Newton said. “Farm gate prices come down and soon after the retail price will follow. There is some price transmission, but currently the farmer’s share of the retail dollar is lower than it was in recent years. We would expect to see that with lower input costs, it will drive processors to have lower prices at the consumer level. When prices decline, retailers can offer more promotional specials. You could see two for one cheeseburgers, for example, and you would sell twice as much cheese when the prices for cheese are low. Those things in turn will help the farmer’s price.”last_img read more

Sunlight has some specific suggestions for projects developers might work on (see below) and lots of the unexpected is expected as well.You can help make it happen by signing up to host an event in your town. At least a few awesome things ought to come out of it. Check out the list of what’s been proposed so far.A tool for reporting online privacy violations to the FTC and simultaneously blowing the whistle to all your friends on your favorite social networks? That’s one cool idea. A tool for making Layar Augmented Reality endpoints easily in Django? People would eat that up. (And build projects like Sunlight’s AR Recovery.gov.) A Python wrapper for Sunlight’s competitor to Data.gov, the National Data Catolog API? A computer assisted researcher’s dream come true!What would you like to build or build with other participants in the Hackathon? This is nerdy stuff, too few people appreciate it, but someone just might build software so beneficial to the civic interest that a parade is in order. Maybe a parade in every town that hosts a hackathon.
