The Shipwrecked Mariners’ Society, one of the UK’s oldest maritime charities is calling on schools to take a CHALLENGE and go walk about, at the same time as raising money for a good cause. June 6th to 12th is Seafarers Awareness Week and the Shipwrecked Mariners’ Society is committed to this national campaign within the maritime charity community to promote our work on behalf of seafarers and their families, and to help raise the profile of the dangers and sacrifices faced by those who work at sea, whilst at the same time acknowledging the vital contribution the maritime and fishing industries play in allowing us all to enjoy our standard of living.To end the summer term on a high note, The Society is setting a CHALLENGE to schools that guarantee fun at no additional cost. An educational adventure for all the ages, the Shipwrecked Mariners’ Society wants children to learn about the crucial role seafarers play in our day to day lives, so schools taking part can use the Challenge as a National Curriculum project or subject topic.The CHALLENGE can take place any time to suit the schools between now and 29 July 2011. Pupils are encouraged to donate £1 to take part and photos, anecdotes and tales from the events are welcomed. Easy to organise, the CHALLENGE has a pre-planned route in the Isle of Wight, Jersey, Lynmouth and Weymouth that will include visits to the Society’s ex-WW11 collecting box mines which were donated by the Admiralty in recognition of the support the Charity gave to seafarers during the war years.“With the school holidays just around the corner and warm weather with us, the CHALLENGE is an ideal way to end the summer term,” said Chief Executive of the Shipwrecked Mariners’ Society, Commodore Malcolm Williams, CBE RN. “As an island nation, we are extremely reliant on our seafarers and we hope the Challenge Walks will prove an interesting and fun event. We hope children will enjoy learning about one of the industries that has contributed so much to our economy. Once completed all schools who have raised money for the Society will receive a certificate as a record of their endeavours.”The Shipwrecked Mariners’ Society was founded in 1839 and exists to provide relief to the seafaring, and ex-seafaring community. As well as helping in the event of a shipwreck – and they do still happen – its main function today is offering financial support to retired or elderly seafarers and widows who have fallen on hard times. Last year, the Society made grant payments totalling over £1.6 million to beneficiaries in one off or regular grants.Taking part in the CHALLENGE is free and easy to enter.

March on Wall Street South: Why big banks will be targeted

first_imgCharlotte, N.C. — Mobilizing has begun around the country for the March on Wall Street South: protest actions between Sept. 1 and 6 around the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. Activities will include a Sept. 1 Festivaliberación!, focused on youth, students and immigrants; a Sept. 2 March on Wall Street South; and a Sept. 3 Southern Workers Assembly.A New York/New Jersey delegation joined a MWSS press conference on July 18 in front of the Charlotte-Meckenberg police station in downtown Charlotte. (See Aug. 2 Workers World issue for earlier coverage.) Among those who spoke were Larry Hales, an organizer with the Bail Out the People Movement, who mobilized for protests during the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver, and Teresa Gutierrez of the May 1st Coalition for Worker and Immigrant Rights. This article covers the high points of their talks.“Dr. Martin Luther King said injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere,” said Hales. “We see that a great amount of injustice still exists in this world, in this country and this city, which many people witnessed by the recent killing of 28-year-old Black man Michael Lainey by the Charlotte-Mecklenberg police department.“Much of the suffering and injustice emanates from a system that is based on exploiting working people for their labor. Wars; police brutality; closing our schools, social centers, neighborhood pools; firing teachers — cutting back the entire social safety net that we won through years of struggle – are dictated by the wealthy and powerful, the banks, financial institutions and the corporations. That is why we are marching on Wall Street South.”Hales stressed, “Banks, financial institutions and corporations have been given at least $20 trillion of bailouts in federal money. It’s our tax money that is put into their pockets while we face constant cutbacks and suffering. This is a great crime and a great injustice. The workers create all wealth in society, not the bosses, corporations and banks. If every worker took the day off tomorrow, billions of dollars would be lost. It’s the workers who drive the buses and trains, open the stores, manufacture the goods and pick the fruit. Yet, the bankers and bosses got the largest welfare check ever issued in this country. It is time that we fight back.“We will be here in September to tell the bankers that we are not afraid of you. We’ll be here every day until then. Occupy Wall Street was just the opening salvo. We will be in the communities — Black, Latino/a, Indigenous, where there are workers, where there are people suffering and facing injustice — to say that we stand for you. Let’s fight for jobs and health care for all. Let’s occupy our schools to keep them open. Let’s occupy our neighbors’ homes and stop the foreclosures and evictions. Let’s stand up for our rights. March with us in September and continue every day after that. All power to the people!”‘Immigrant rights are workers’ rights’Gutierrez explained that “Immigrant rights groups, like other progressive organizations, are mobilizing all over the country to come to Charlotte in September. We consider this a very important event. We consider it crucial to send a message to everyone gathering here that what is needed is not millions of dollars for repression but money for jobs, housing and all the real problems that the people of this country face.“We want to tell you about the fight for immigrant rights. The press talks about the ‘good immigrant’ and the ‘bad immigrant.’ We are for the rights of all the undocumented to stay in this country and to fight for legalization. What could be more criminal than the economic and foreign policies that have forced our brothers and sisters to come here? What forces people to get in a boat in Haiti or to cross that brutal border into Arizona, risking their lives, if it isn’t desperate conditions? Who are the real criminals? Those who force people to come here because of legislation like NAFTA, which destabilized their homelands. That’s the real crime.“We want to send a message in September that we need unity for all people of color. We want violent acts such as the killing of Trayvon Martin to stop. It took an upsurge of his family and their supporters and many communities to get any attempt at justice for him.”Gutierrez emphasized, “We want jobs for all. If we win the right of legalization for immigrants, this benefits everyone. Our sign says ‘Immigrant Rights Are Workers’ Rights.’ The fight for immigrant rights is a fight for unions and for all of us. If we win the struggle for immigrants, we win the struggle for all workers.“That’s our message for September when we will march with the Coalition to March on Wall Street South. We sent a message to Wall Street in New York City last September that the 99% will continue to fight against the 1%. We’re sending that message again in Charlotte.”Community outreach is going on daily. MWSS mobilizing meetings take place at the Charlotte Solidarity Center every Monday at 7 p.m. For more information and to help with organizing, contact 704-266-0362, [email protected] or [email protected]; view website wallstsouth.org; or visit the Charlotte Solidarity Center at 516E. 15th St., which is open weekdays from noon to 5 p.m.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Indiana Weather Forecast 1/14/2015

first_imgSouthern Brazil corn areas will see 2 nice fronts between now and the 21st. These fronts should yield 2-5 inch rain totals. Facebook Twitter BEYOND INDIANA: Previous articleStrategies for Farmers to Manage Taxes Through the DownturnNext articleIndiana Discussion Meet Finalist Falls Short of Crown Ryan Martin CATTLE Weather  SHARE SOYBEAN Weather WHEAT Weather  Believe it or not, the end is in sight for this brutal cold snap. Temps today will rival what we saw back on Wednesday, and wind chills will be brutal as well. However…as long as we can make it to Sunday, we will see some relief. Snow moves out of the area early this morning, but winds will stay up through the day. We will see some 20-40 mph winds hold through mid morning, and then 12-25 mph winds will be the norm through the rest of the day. That will put wind chills in the 15-25 degrees below zero range, if not colder. Blowing snow will be an issue through most of the day over the northern half of the state. Look for lowered visibilities. Actual air temps will hold in the single digits to low teens, and we will fall to 2 to 12 below overnight tonight. Above right is a wind chill map for midnight tonight. The entire US Corn Belt gets closer to normal on temps next week. Rains to start the week hit mostly the southern half of the Corn Belt, from I-70 southward. WE like half inch or less rains, coverage at 70%. The biggest question will be “all rain” vs. “rain ending as snow.” We like mostly rain, with snow, if it happens anywhere, limited to areas along and just north of I-70. Any warming in the Corn Belt will be short lived, as we see significant arctic air coming in after the 21st. We feel like a broken record here, but in general, we see no trouble spots in South American corn production areas. A little bit of net drying settles in through the weekend and early next week in southern Cordoba and LaPampa in Argentina, but the rest of Argentina’s Corn Belt gets rain from late Sunday through Tuesday. A stronger system later in the period (end of next week into the following week) brings rains to southern parts of the belt. So, we will hold onto at least 2-4 inches in the central north and 1-2 inches in the southern growing region over the next two weeks combined. Temps will be in the upper 80s to mid 90s through the weekend, but should pull back, to the mid 80s and low 90s next week. Overnight lows will generally be in the 60s and 70s. . Cold air puts in one more day tomorrow, although we will be slightly (ever so slightly) warmer. Then on Sunday we bump temps up to the mid 20s to low 30s. Our system for early next week is on track for Monday into Tuesday. Models still prefer a mostly south track, but we think it foolish to rule out precipitation anywhere. Over the southern half to 2/3rds of the state, we are still leaning toward liquid precipitation (rain) although temps will not be all that warm. Up north, light snow and flurries will be more likely. The rest of the week will be mostly dry. Temps hold in the upper 20s to low 30s north up to the lower 40s south. This map is of 7AM Monday morning Home News Feed Indiana Weather Forecast 1/14/2015center_img South African Corn production areas continue to see scattered, timely rains. There look to be no weather related production problems in the next 2 weeks, with rains up to 1 inch, coverage around 80%. Rains will not come all at once, and will be scattered form day to day. Temps at or slightly above normal.    The main change in our outlook for HRW areas has to do with the variability in temps. We see a lot more up and down of temps from day to day over the next week to 10 days. Warmer air ridging in the west will battle with the cold air trough that wants to park over the east. The western HRW areas will be in the crosshairs. The worst consequence of this will be two-fold. 1) We expect to see most snow cover go away over the next week or so. 2) The up and down will provide mixed messages for wheat as well. Now, most of HRW has adequate moisture and is in decent health, but our concern over bitter cold arctic air sometime after the 21st/22nd should be noted. We wont jump on the winter kill bandwagon like it seems everyone else does (after all, how many times can you really kill wheat, anyway?), but you can rest assured that we will see that headline making the rounds again in a couple of weeks. Weather that Impacts CORN: Harvest is ramping up somewhat in western and northern Brazil bean areas. To that end, weather looks decent for harvest through the enxt 10 days. Moisture will be around, but will be scattered. WE like 10 day totals of half an inch or less, but are bumping coverage to 60%. This meains we should see mostly suitable moisture for any 2nd crop corn planting that is going ont. Heat continues to be relegated mostly to coastal and not agriculture areas. The 12-16 day forecast window is still wetter than the short term, but we are scaling our forecast back to hafl to 1.5”, taking out some of the heavier hit areas. . By Ryan Martin – Jan 13, 2015 A strong front should move into the state around the 19th-20th. This system has been all over the place since models first keyed on it a little over a week ago. Timing has held, while intensity has wavered. At this point, we like a stronger storm with rain followed by snow. This system should bring down another arctic high that holds through the end of the month. WE continue to see a deep trough digging in over the desert SW around the 22nd-23rd…which would aid in bringing arctic air into the great lakes and OH valley. We still like .25”-.75” liquid equivalents out of the system for the 19th-20th. Cold air holds over northern areas, and in large dairy areas like WI, MN, IA, IL and IN, we will see generally temps at or below normal. In large beef production areas out west, we will see some susceptibility to wilder temp changes, which may impact rate of gain and overall production. However, we do not see much in the next two weeks that would give concern over transportation issues. Short term, there still will be high levels of animal stress due to bitter wind chills today, and well below normal temps tomorrow. Facebook Twitter Indiana Weather Forecast 1/14/2015 No change in SRW areas. We have decent moisture in the weeks ahead from at least 2 systems, slightly moderating temperatures, but the bulk of the snow north of I-70 should stick around. That means we still should have at least some blanket of protection as the next arctic blast arrives later in the month. SHARElast_img read more

Ho Chi Minh City court upholds jail sentences for dissidents

Sentences totalling 33 years in prison were passed on four dissidents who were tried by a court in Ho Chi Minh City today.“The Vietnamese authorities have embarked on an all-out witchhunt for pro-democracy activists and a demonization of the Internet, whose potential for disseminating news and information terrifies them,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Allegations of an internationally-inspired conspiracy do not hold water. These peaceful activists are just paying the price of the paranoia and power struggles within the ruling Communist Party in the run-up to next year’s national congress.“This wave of arrests will not put an end to the debate about the country’s future. The four dissidents have become symbols that are galvanising the struggle for freedom of opinion and expression in Vietnam and abroad. The international community must condemn these heavy sentences and put pressure on the government to release the activists.”Reporters Without Borders added: “In particular, we urge the European Union to suspend its human rights dialogue with Vietnam until the activists are released, and we urge ASEAN to express its mounting concern following the latest sentences.”In today’s trial, the well-known human rights lawyer Le Cong Dinh was sentenced to five years in prison while the pro-democracy activists Le Thang Long, Nguyen Tien Trung and Tran Huynh Duy Thuc were sentenced to five, seven and 16 years in prison, respectively. Dinh, Long and Trung were also sentenced to three years of house arrest on completing their jail terms, while Thuc was given five years of house arrest.The judge convicted all four of “endangering national security” and “organising campaigns in collusion with reactionary organisations based abroad” that were “designed to overthrow the people’s government (…) with the help of the Internet.” Relatives, diplomats and foreign journalists were barred from the courtroom but were allowed to follow the trial on a TV set in an adjoining room. Dozens of policemen were stationed around the courthouse.Dinh and Trung admitted under pressure to breaking the law and to being influenced by western values, but denied intending to overthrow the government. This was taking into account by the presiding judge when he passed sentence. Thuc, who got the longest sentence, reportedly defied the court and refuse to admit his guilt.Thuc’s brother told the BBC that Thuc had testified that he was subjected to a great deal of pressure and mistreatment during the investigation and had asked to be tried by different judges, a request that was rejected. Thuc had also insisted on his innocence, his brother said. Although only accused of being an accomplice, Long also refused to admit to doing any wrong by sending articles to a foreign radio station.The family of Trung, who studied in France, told Reporters Without Borders the sentence was “too severe for pro-democracy activities.” A member of the family added: “We condemn the charge against Trung of having tried to overthrow the government as all he did was exercise his rights as a citizen. His aim was a better future for Vietnam, a democratic one that respects human rights. We are going to continue to campaign for him to be released as soon as possible.”Three other activists who had posted their views on the Internet received prison sentences yesterday on appeal. They were the poet Pham Van Troi (who got a four year sentence), the former teacher Vu Van Hung (who was given a three-year sentence) and the poet Tran Duc Thach (who also got three years).Sign the petitions on http://freetrung.tk and http://www.thepetitionsite.com/petition/294288684 In an 11 May ruling, a Ho Chi Minh City appeal court confirmed the sentences that were imposed on two dissidents on 20 January and reduced the sentence that was passed on a third. The fourth dissident who was convicted at the same time did not appeal.The court upheld leading human rights lawyer Le Cong Dinh’s five-year sentence and businessman and pro-democracy activist Tran Huynh Duy Thuc’s 16-year sentence on the grounds that no new elements were presented at the appeal hearing. Tran’s sentence is the longest ever passed on a dissident.The court did reduce the five-year sentence that had been passed on fellow activist Le Thang Long to three and a half years after he admitted breaking the law and requested clemency. The fourth activist who did not appeal was Nguyen Tien Trung, a blogger and computer technician. Reporters Without Borders condemns the decisions taken by the appeal court in this case, which concerns people who did nothing but peacefully call for more freedom in Vietnam.

Department of Defense Supports Neumedicines With Groundbreaking Grant for Surgical Site Infection Therapy

first_imgBusiness Districts News Department of Defense Supports Neumedicines With Groundbreaking Grant for Surgical Site Infection Therapy Funds Awarded to Study Effectiveness of NM-IL-12 (aka HemaMaxâ„¢) as a Prophylactic Immunotherapy Measure to Avoid Infected Surgical Wounds From STAFF REPORTS Published on Monday, March 2, 2015 | 9:07 pm Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena First Heatwave Expected Next Week Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday 8 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Make a comment Neumedicines, Inc. announced today that it has been awarded approximately $2.5 million by the Department of Defense, Defense Medical Research and Development Program, for a clinical trial assessing the safety and efficacy of NM-IL-12 (aka HemaMaxâ„¢) (recombinant human interleukin-12 or rHuIL-12) as a prophylactic immunotherapy in surgical wounds, for the purpose of avoiding infection by way of a mechanism different from all antibiotics. The trial is a Phase IIa study involving approximately 30 subjects and is expected to be concluded in mid-2016.We’re pleased to undertake this effort for the U.S. military,” said Neumedicines’ President and CEO Lena A. Basile, Ph.D., J.D. “Our study will focus on combating multi-drug-resistant bacterial and fungal pathogens that are evolving threats to wounded service men and women. Moreover, these pathogenic threats prevent robust healing. Our studies of IL-12 in preclinical models demonstrated significantly accelerated wound healing. Our subjects will be drawn from patients who have undergone abdominal surgery and who also present with the finding of contamination at the surgical wound site.”Prior to receiving this DOD award, Neumedicines has received more than $64 million from the U.S. Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) to support the development of HemaMaxâ„¢ for the treatment of hematopoietic syndrome of acute radiation sickness (HSARS). Sometimes known as radiation toxicity or sickness, HSARS results from exposure to a high dose of ionizing radiation as would happen in the case of a nuclear attack, and causes depletion of progenitor and stem cells in specific tissues of those exposed to the radiation. It is particularly harmful to blood cell-producing bone marrow, and can be fatal. BARDA has supported much of the pre-clinical, nonclinical and clinical studies resulting in Neumedicines’ pursuit of FDA approval for HemaMaxâ„¢ for radiomitigation.“Receiving this Department of Defense Military Infectious Diseases Clinic Trial Award is another important recognition of HemaMax’ potential range of applications,” said Basile. “The drug plays a critical role in hematopoietic cell-to-cell signaling, stimulating immunity and hematopoiesis, and therefore should be valuable for a variety of oncology indications, including cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, acute myeloid leukemia, melanoma, and solid tumors, which are often treated with radiation and/or chemotherapy that yield undesirable hematopoietic and immunological side effects. In other words, HemaMax may be a safe and effective way to treat many conditions that suppress the body’s ability to generate blood cells and stave off infections, and that is the reason for its appeal to the military.”About Neumedicines Inc.Privately-held Neumedicines is an emerging therapeutic biotechnology company that is developing and commercializing innovative, proprietary products and approaches for the treatment of various clinical indications in the fields of oncology, hematology, and immunology.

We have already filed an application that in 2018 there is already a task force created and this committee has thus the Committee ceased to exist. Sealing of residential premises is beyond their jurisdiction and I am aghast at their observations and functioning,” the law officer told a bench of CJI SA Bobde, Justices AS Bopanna & V. Ramasubramaniun.The Monitoring Committee told court that the ruling had led to large scale de-sealing of buildings that had been sealed for unauthorised construction, resulting in a “free for all” in the capital, resulting in encroachments by local bodies.Today, the bench also sought the opinion of amicus curiae and senior advocate Ranjit Kumar, who has continuously assisted the court in the matter for 25 years.”Committee was appointed in 2006. Question was whether there is any unauthorised construction which the municipality has looked over. Corporations have been found hand in glove and to say they are sufficient to take care of this issue is not correct,” submitted (Amicus) Senior Advocate Ranjit Kumar.Kumar said the report needed consideration in light of the August 14 judgment. Kumar also sought to be relieved from the task of amicus curiae. On his request, the bench appointed senior advocate Guru Krishna Kumar as amicus.The Court had on August 14 clarified that the Committee had been appointed only to check the misuse of residential properties for commercial purposes, but it could not have usurped statutory powers which had not been conferred on it by the Court.”It is apparent from the various orders passed by this Court from time to time and from the various reports of the Monitoring Committee that it was never authorized by this Court to take action against the residential premises that were not being used for commercial purposes. It was appointed only to check the misuser of the residential properties for commercial purposes. After that, this Court directed that the Monitoring Committee should also look into the matter of “encroachment on the public land” and “unauthorized colonies” that have come up on the public land and were wholly unauthorized without sanction. At no point in time, this Court had empowered the Monitoring Committee to act vis-¬à-¬vis to the purely residential premises.”The monitoring committee, comprising K J Rao, former advisor to the Election Commissioner, Bhure Lal, chairman of Environment Pollution (Prevention and Control) Authority, and Major General (Retd) Som Jhingan, was set up on March 24, 2006, by the court.The bench has also allowed the impleadment application of the Defence Colony Market Association. The SG said he had  no objection to their application being allowed as they were an affected party.The bench said it would hear this issue after two weeks.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
