  • Conservative government reasserts control over state broadcaster

It is sad to see the state media again being turned into a political battlefield at the expense of the public’s right to diverse and balanced news and information.”RTVE is abruptly turning its back on the progress achieved in recent years as regards independence from the government, progress that had been reflected in increased viewing figures.” Ana Pastor, the well-known host of TVE’s morning programme “Desayunos,” was fired on 4 August although the number of its viewers, around 5 million, was very high of that time of day. According to TVE, she left because she turned down a management proposal that she should switch to an evening programme.But Pastor said she was offered no concrete alternative and was told to “wait a few months.” On her Twitter account, she said she was “fired for doing journalism.” Pastor is known for her uncompromising interviews and for responding when PP accused TVE of a left-wing “bias.” Pastor’s ouster is one of a series of such moves since June involving RTVE staff critical of the tough austerity policies being pursued by conservative Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy’s government. The first to go were several people in senior management positions. They were recently followed by Alicia Montano, the director of the current affairs programme “Informe Semanal,” and Canal 24 Horas journalist Xabier Fortes.The head of news at TVE, Fran Llorente, was accused of “political bias” and replaced in June by Julio Somoano, the former head of the local TV station Telemadrid, although nearly 70 per cent of the staff expressed their opposition to Somoano in vote of no-confidence.All these personnel changes have taken place since Leopoldo González-Echenique, a senior official in a previous PP administration headed by José María Aznar, took over as RTVE’s chairman in June, becoming the first person to be appointed to the post since a change in the method of naming the heads of state radio and TV stations was adopted on 20 April.Previously, two thirds of the members of parliament had to approve the appointment of RTVE’s chairman, but now only a simple majority is required. This gives PP a lot of leeway. The government said the change was needed to end the paralysis at RTVE since July 2011, in which RTVE’s chairmen were rotated every two months because PP and its main rival, the Spanish Socialist Workers Party (PSOE), could not reach an agreement.”The state broadcaster has to be able to function in a sustainable manner but guaranteeing its independence of the government is no less crucial,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The politicization of RTVE currently under way must stop at once and a new reform must be adopted in order to eliminate any suspicions about the independence of those in charge.”Such issues are far from being a matter of concern in just Spain. Several other members of the European Union, including Slovenia, Portugal and France, need to rise to this challenge.” Organisation last_img read more

  • Governor DeSantis: Florida coronavirus patients are in 60s, 20s

    first_imgWPTV Reports:With two presumptive cases of coronavirus in Florida, Gov. Ron DeSantis is addressing the health emergency on Monday during a pair of stops across the Sunshine State. “Northern Italy is the site of a large outbreak of COVID-19,” said Florida Surgeon General Dr. Scott Rivkees, who added the patient is currently in isolation at her home. The governor held a news conference with health officials in Tampa to discuss Florida’s response response to coronavirus, or COVID-19. A second news conference is planned for Monday afternoon in Miami.“Despite these cases, the overall immediate threat to the public remains low,” said Gov. DeSantis. “With that said, we do anticipate that more will test positive, and we have taken additional actions to help contain the viruses spread.”Gov. DeSantis declared a public health emergency over the weekend after two presumptive cases of the virus surfaced in Hillsborough and Manatee Counties in the Tampa Bay area.SPECIAL COVERAGE: CoronavirusHealth officials said Monday that one patient is a man in his 60s from Manatee County. He’s currently in the hospital and it’s unknown how he was exposed to the virus. He has no travel history to China or other countries identified for restricted travel by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.The second patient is a woman in her 20s from Hillsborough County who recently returned from traveling to northern Italy. Gov. DeSantis said that to date, 23 people have been tested for coronavirus in Florida, and 184 people are currently being monitored.If you recently traveled to countries with restricted travel from the CDC (China, Iran, South Korea, Italy, and Japan) and are experiencing symptoms like fever, cough, shortness of breath, or difficulty breathing, contact the Florida Department of Health right away.“Our goal is to contain this,” the governor said.Dr. Rivkees said coronavirus is transmitted like the flu through coughing and sneezing, and in 80 percent of cases, patients will have mild symptoms that can be treated at home.“In the elderly, and those individuals with underlying medical conditions like high blood pressure, heart problems, obesity, and diabetes may be more prone to developing serious complications should they contract COVID-19,” said Dr. Rivkees, who added there are currently no vaccines or medications to treat coronavirus.The governor released this statement on Sunday after the two cases were confirmed:center_img “I have been working with federal partners and our Department of Health to ensure that communities are ready to handle the challenges presented by COVID-19. The dedicated professionals at our county health departments, as well as those working at local medical providers, are well equipped to address these and future cases. State Surgeon General Dr. Scott Rivkees has taken appropriate, decisive action to help affect the best possible outcomes, and I will continue directing our state agencies to do whatever is necessary to prioritize the health and well-being of Florida residents.” Gov. DeSantis said state labs in Miami, Tampa, and Jacksonville can now test for coronavirus, and the results take 24 to 48 hours to come back, as opposed to five days from a CDC lab.The governor added Florida is following guidance from the CDC and the Department of Health and Human Services with regard to prevention measures for coronavirus.Florida has a coronavirus Incident Management Team in place and is getting multiple daily updates from the CDC. In addition, the state has hundreds of Department of Health professionals ready to respond to potential patients.The Florida Department of Health has set up a special website with the latest information about coronavirus. CLICK HERE FOR THAT WEBSITE.For questions related to coronavirus in Florida, contact the Department of Health’s COVID-19 Call Center by calling 1-866-779-6121.

  • Bins locked tight waiting for prices to rise

    first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Numerous producers who in recent years had completed corn and soybean harvest by the end of October found their work days stretched late into November. Many continue to be amazed at the huge corn yields of this past growing season. While not everyone had record corn yields this fall, it was a common occurrence across Ohio. It would appear that that were more record corn yields than record soybean yields. Rainfall at my house in Lancaster was six inches last month. No doubt many readers have similar totals.Grain facilities across the state had storage space stretched to the maximum this fall. While those rainy days of October and November delayed harvest, it did allow grain handlers to get caught up on drying corn this fall. Late November some facilities were open limited days as they wanted to be full at the end of harvest. With basis levels already appreciating for corn and soybeans by the end of November, some producers will be anxious to move grain this month to core their grain bins. Looking ahead, declining temperatures suggest that winter is knocking at the door. Temperature forecasts into mid-December show low 30s for highs and teens for the lows. Numerous forecasts this fall have already suggested this winter will be a cold one, returning us to the temperature extremes we faintly remember, while hoping the extremes won’t be a trend for the future.USDA published their last weekly crop progress report for the 2017 growing season on Nov. 27. That report had the U.S. corn harvest progress at 95% while Ohio’s corn harvest was 87%. The progress report of Nov. 20 had U.S. soybean harvest at 96%. Ohio’s soybean harvest was 95%. The Nov. 20 progress report was the last report of harvest activity for soybeans. USDA will resume their weekly crop progress reports on April 2, 2018. To see growing conditions for winter wheat you will need to observe state NASS bulletins. These weekly reports often report days suitable for field work as well as crop conditions.USDA will publish this month’s Supply and Demand Estimates on Dec. 12. Crop production and yields will not be published with the December report. The Jan. 12, 2018 USDA report will be the last production report for 2017 corn and soybeans. The January report will also detail grain stocks as of Dec. 1 in their Grain Stocks Report. This report breaks grain stocks into off-farm as well as on the farm. That has been the standard report process used by USDA and NASS for decades. With 17% less corn production expected from Brazil in coming months, all will be watching U.S. corn exports closely in the months ahead. While sales and shipments are behind those of last year, there are thoughts that exports could bump higher in the second half of the marketing year which is March through August 2018.Producer bins appear to be locked tight with the tight trading range corn had during October and November. March CBOT corn had a range of $3.49 to $3.69. Producers want to see the front number start with four to say the least. January CBOT soybeans seem stuck in a range of $9.70 to $10.10. Closes above $10.10 point to resistance levels at $10.30. Cash soybeans at $10 or higher will open the bin doors for producers needing cash in the next 60 days.last_img read more

  • Never Arrive At Another Meeting Unprepared, Thank You Noteleaf

    first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#biz#tips Here’s a confession: when I’m about to go into a meeting or a conference call, I often get that “wait, what are we talking about again?” feeling. I don’t mean to be unprepared, I really don’t. In the final minutes before a meeting, I do try to prep, which often means searching through my mobile phone, trying to pull various threads and thoughts together. There. Now you know.So enter Noteleaf which addresses this problem quite simply. You get a text message prior to your meeting, with a link that pulls up background information about the person with whom you’re meeting. Noteleaf currently works for Gmail and Google Apps users, pulling information from your Google Calendar, your Gmail, and you contacts in order to help build out the background information it delivers prior to your meeting. That info includes the person’s profile picture, as well as details from the Calendar entry and a filtered list of all email exchanges. With one click you can email the person or grab a map to the meeting location.Noteleaf also connects to LinkedIn to provide a robust work profile. Today, Noteleaf is expanding this integration and will also show mutual contacts from your LinkedIn network. The app will also display the 3 most recent tweets.There are definitely some features I’d like to see added to Noteleaf – the ability to pull up company profile information would be useful in my line of work, for example. The balance here, of course, is to note overload the app with data so that it becomes as odious to check as other sources of data. As it stands, this is a simple app – there’s nothing even to download which means it works cross-platforms; you just register via the website – and it does a decent job of quickly pulling together info on your mobile device.“It’s all about being prepped for meetings on the go,” says co-founder Jake Klamka, who adds that the company is listening to feedback from early users about what they’d like to see.

  • NBCs Al Trautwig Backs Down from Comments About Simone

    Al Trautwig and Simone Biles (Daily Dot, US News)Al Trautwig, the gymnastics commentator for NBC’s Olympic Games coverage, has found himself in hot water for claiming Simone Biles’ adoptive mother and father are not her parents. The athlete was adopted by her maternal grandfather  and his wife – Ron and Nellie Biles –at age 6 with her younger sister Adria. The pair took the siblings in after their daughter struggled with drugs and alcohol.Trautwig referred to Ron and Nellie as Simone’s grandparents on air during the competition. When a Twitter user corrected him he said, “They may be mom and dad but they are NOT her parents.”The tweet was later deleted but not before others captured a screenshot, including Maggie Astor.Funny, @AlTrautwig deleted his vile tweet about @Simone_Biles’ parents. Fortunately, screenshots exist. @NBCOlympics pic.twitter.com/08uUIBCDFG— Maggie Astor (@MaggieAstor) August 8, 2016Many responded to the message, including Aimee Boorman, Simone’s long-time [email protected] actually they are her parents.— Aimee B (@Salto_Coach) August 8, 2016Lauren Brewer questioned why Ron and Nellie kept being called her grandparents, adding “adoptive parents are parents.”Why do the #nbc commentators keep saying #SimoneBiles parents are her parents to her, her actual grandparents? Adoptive parents are parents!— Lauren Brewer (@knowinvno1) August 8, 2016Andrew Watring thought the network needed to “educate yourself about adoption.”[email protected] Those are @Simone_Biles’s parents – she doesn’t “think of them” as her parents. They are. Educate yourself about adoption, please.— Andrew Watring (@AndrewWatring) August 8, 2016Later on, NBC released a statement saying, “we became aware of the situation last night and addressed it with Al quickly.”Time reported the 19-year-old Olympic all-around finalist was formally adopted by her grandparents on Christmas Eve 2002. Biles asked if she could call her grandmother mom on the first day it became official. Now, she refers to Nellie and Ron as mom and dad. While she has met her biological mom a few times, she only hears from her on birthdays and holidays.“When I was younger, I thought every kid was adopted,” she told the magazine in June. “I didn’t understand why people made it such a big deal. To me, it’s just normal.”According to USA Today, Trautwig emailed an apology to NBC Sports.“I regret that I wasn’t more clear in my wording on the air,” he explained. “I compounded the error on Twitter, which I quickly corrected. To set the record straight, Ron and Nellie are Simone’s parents.”The statement came too little too late, however. The hashtag #FireTrautwig sprung up online after the commentator [email protected] called for Trautwig’s “immediate dismissal.”Dude needs immediate dismissal. They raised her. They’re her parents. This isn’t about biology. It’s about NURTURE #FireTrautwig— smh_yet_again (@mskavon) August 8, [email protected] thought Trautwig’s statement was simply a defense of his “insensitive words.”@Gymtertainment I think by “quick correction” he means defend his insensitive words and belittle people who pointed it out. #FireTrautwig— Olympics to Election (@olympicstoelect) August 8, 2016 read more
