first_imgThis week the U.S. Senate is considering S. 2012, the Energy Policy Modernization Act(EPMA), a comprehensive energy bill that includes provisions ranging from energy efficiency to modernizing the nation’s electricity transmission grid and funding for energy research.  There has also been 231 amendments filed so far, including several aimed at eliminating ethanol from the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) or eliminating the RFS entirely.   Senate leaders hope to pass the bill this week with a strong bipartisan vote and are trying to fend off any controversial amendments.  The RFS related amendments are among the controversial amendments that are not expected to be brought up for a vote.  The American Soybean Association (ASA) and our biodiesel industry partners are monitoring the bill and the amendment process.The bill’s provisions to increase energy efficiency, modernize the nation’s electric grid, and increase federal funding for energy research are designed to lower energy costs, improve reliability, and make the U.S. economy more competitive internationally and they enjoy bipartisan support. However, there are some partisan and geographical differences regarding the conflicting interests of fossil fuels and renewable energy sources as well as issues unrelated to energy policy that threaten to derail the bill.The underlying bill includes revisions to the Biomass Research & Development Initiative (BRDI), a program that is authorized under Section 9008 of the Farm Bill Energy Title.  The EMPA would amend the BRDI program to provide research assistance and grants for the development of woody biomass heat and biopower projects, as well as a provision specifically including oilseed crops as eligible for the new grant program.  The BRDI is jointly administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Department of Energy.Among the many amendments that have been filed is one from Sen. Mike Rounds (R-SD) that would establish a federal education program to ensure landowners are given all of the federal conservation options available to them when choosing to put their land into a conservation easement.  There is no indication as of yet whether the Rounds amendment will be considered.The ASA will continue to update members on the status of RFS related amendments and any other issues in the EMPA relevant to soybean farmers.last_img read more

first_imgThey may be competitors on the world stage, but oilseed producers from across the globe will meet in Sydney next week to discuss trade issues borne out of a number of key geopolitical changes, including international leadership and Brexit, experienced over the last 12 months.American Soybean Association (ASA) CEO Steve Censky, ASA President Ron Moore and United Soybean Board’s (USB) John Motter, along with U.S. Soybean Export Council (USSEC) representatives Jim Sutter, Roz Leek and ASA Director Jim Miller, will attend the event.The Oilseed Producer’s Dialogue (IOPD), will draw producers from Australia, Europe and South and North America to Sydney with the key aim of promoting collaboration across common interests and objectives. It will be held in Sydney June 26-27 before heading on-farm in Central West New South Wales later in the week.The event will be hosted by the Australian Oilseeds Federation (AOF), the peak industry body for Australian oilseeds, and Executive Director Nick Goddard is looking forward to showing off Sydney and local farming systems.“Trade will certainly be a hot topic at this year’s meeting, following the collapse of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, uncertainty around what Brexit might mean for trade in Britain and Europe, and new leadership in the US, France and UK,” Goddard said.“Biotechnology, and growing pressure from some importing countries around residues, also have the potential to impact trade and will be discussed at length“Another issue at the forefront of the dialogue will be increasing restrictions by some countries on the way oilseed producers operate, particularly in relation to the use of  critical farm chemicals.“It’s important for us to see what is happening globally with farmers and the limitations being put on farming practices, to look at the big picture of the global oilseed business.“It really highlights that we all have the same goals, and it helps us to find ways to work together to achieve these goals.”The IOPD was established in 1998 to develop and promote a sound business environment to allow oilseed producers to remain viable for current and future generations. Members support trade liberalisation, and science-based systems for both Maximum Residue Limits (MRL) and sustainable technologies, including biotechnology.The sessions in Sydney will include presentations from each participating country, and discussions on global markets, international trade, research and development, chemical residues, and new breeding techniques.Delegates will then head to Parkes, Forbes, Eugowra and Orange for two days, where they will visit several farms, saleyards, crushing plants and other sights.last_img read more

first_imgHello Soy Family,As I write this I’m sitting in an airport in Brazil, headed home after a trip with USSEC to the International Oilseed Producers Dialogue. It has been an eye-opening trip to see firsthand Brazil’s soybean fields and meet with local growers. It is clear from this trip that Brazil could find ways to increase production if demand from China increases as a result of the U.S. Administration’s Section 301 tariffs, which are set to take effect in July.With that, I can once again say that trade took center stage this month.On the morning of June 15 President Trump officially announced that the U.S. will implement 25 percent tariffs on $50 billion of Chinese products, effective July 6. That same afternoon, China responded in-kind, placing a 25 percent tariff on $50 billion of U.S. imports, effective July 6. These retaliatory tariffs include a 25 percent tariff on U.S. soybeans. On Monday, June 18, President Trump ordered U.S. trade officials to craft a list of $200 billion worth of Chinese goods that would be hit with an additional 10 percent tariff.ASA, along with board members, states, growers and the entire soy family has worked tirelessly to convey to the Administration and Members of Congress that these tariffs will unduly harm soy growers, and rural America.I hope you joined ASA’s social media days, utilizing the hashtags #TradeNotTariffs and #RethinkTheTariffs, and have taken action through the Soy Action Center. If not, there is still time as we will be utilizing a new hashtag, #FacesOfTariffs on July 3 to show the real impact these tariffs will have across the countryside.This is an issue that frankly isn’t going away easily, and we count on your continued engagement and advocacy.June also saw action on the farm bill. After failing to pass their version of the farm bill in May, the House’s farm bill passed on June 21 with a vote of 213-211. The Senate passed their version on June 28 with a vote of 86-11.ASA continues to encourage bipartisan work in both chambers to see a farm bill completed before it is set to expire at the end of September. A farm bill provides certainty and stability, which is especially needed during this down farm economy and increased volatility in export markets due to heightened trade tensions.Also of note this month was EPA’s announcement of the 2019-2020 RFS levels, calling for 2.43 billion gallons of biomass-based diesel for 2020, which is a 330 million gallon increase over the 2019 levels. For total Advanced Biofuels, an overall category to which biodiesel also qualifies, EPA proposed 4.88 billion gallons for 2019, a 590 million gallon increase over 2018 levels.It has been a busy month, and I look forward to seeing everyone at the board meeting in Washington, DC July 9-12. Your continued engagement is noted, appreciated and most importantly, it is needed. I look forward to continuing to work on behalf of soy growers alongside all of you.See you in Washington. Best, John HeisdorfferPresident, American Soybean Associationlast_img read more

first_imgProsecutors are biding their time before bringing Bethany Storro to court to avoid incurring medical costs associated with her self-inflicted injuries.Clark County Deputy Prosecutor Tony Golik said Wednesday he doesn’t expect the Vancouver woman to make a first appearance until next week because she is still receiving treatment at an unspecified hospital for her facial burns. “I don’t want the county to have to pay for treatment of those injuries,” he said. “I’d like to see the injuries healed before jail.”Golik noted there also isn’t a rush to bring her to court because the 28-year-old isn’t considered a flight risk or a danger to the community. A deli clerk, she lives with her parents in their west Vancouver home.He anticipates a lawyer for Storro will contact him to arrange a time for her surrender. So far, Storro hasn’t hired an attorney, Golik said.On Monday, the major crimes deputy prosecutor filed three counts of second-degree theft by deception against Storro. The charges came four days after Vancouver police revealed that Storro — who fabricated a story about a black woman throwing acid in her face — reportedly confessed that her injuries were self-inflicted.last_img read more

first_imgWhen a fresh-faced, 20-year-old Carole Axford started work at the Clark County Prosecutor’s Office, she used an IBM electric to type court filings.There was a staff of six, including the county prosecutor. The work — typing interviews with trial witnesses, sentencings and other miscellaneous court hearings — was daunting for Axford when it involved murders and rapes.When the prosecutor at the time was preparing for a high-profile murder case, he spared the newcomer the grittiest assignments.“He gave me a witness list (to type) because he thought I was too young” to work other aspects of the case, Axford recalled.That was 50 years ago.Today, you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone more seasoned in their job. Axford, 70, celebrates a half-century with the prosecutor’s office this month and is believed to be the longest-serving county employee in recent memory. The office celebrated with a party for Axford, including a plaque and a bouquet of flowers.The longtime legal secretary has typed details of the most high-profile cases in county history — including killers Clark Hazen and Warren Forrest.Axford has worked under five county prosecutors and, she said, 10 presidents.The staff of six is now close to 100 people — the largest law firm in Clark County. And after so many decades, Axford said she still leaves work happy.last_img read more

first_imgThe North Country EMS Volcano Rescue Team responded Tuesday to two distressed hikers — one on Silver Star Mountain in Skamania County and the other on Mount St. Helens.The names of the hikers had not been released as of The Columbian’s press time.A woman fell 35 feet down a nearly 60-degree slope around 12:35 p.m. on Silver Star Mountain. She was about two miles up Ed’s Trail, at the 3,800-foot elevation, according to a North Country EMS bulletin.She did not report any injuries, but it was too brushy, slippery and steep for her to safely get back to her group. No one in her hiking party from Vancouver Parks and Recreation could safely get down to her. One member was able to lower a small rope for her to hold on to until help arrived.Six members of the Volcano Rescue Team hiked the two miles to the site and lowered one rescuer to the hiker via a rope system. The rescuer put a rescue harness on the woman and she was raised up to the trail.She was able to walk back to her vehicle at the trailhead by 4:26 p.m.Six members of the Volcano Rescue Team went to Silver Star, but had to be diverted to the fallen hiker on Mount St. Helens early Tuesday afternoon.last_img read more

first_imgSay goodbye to Sir Links A Lot.This is the last year of the lederhosen-clad mascot, the last year of sausages on a stick and festival rides. The Vancouver Sausage Fest will sizzle away for good after its 43rd annual celebration in September. The event, which helps raise funds for St. Joseph Catholic School and other charities, had a good run, but it’s time for something different, organizers said.But first, it will go out in a fat-popping blaze of glory in honor of the school’s 60th anniversary, said Carrie Moschetti, pastoral assistant for administration at the school and parish.“It was a decision made by the councils and the fathers,” Moschetti said. “It will still be the same time frame for the final event. And it will be part of the 60th anniversary celebration for the school this year.” The festival, which draws between 25,000 and 30,000 people annually, had been a big money maker for the school for many years, but it wasn’t really keeping up with the need, she said.“It made money, but not so much in recent years,” Moschetti said.The theme was also a bit out of date, said Judy McMorine, development director for the school. “It’s seen its time,” she said. Gene Munson, one of the festival’s founders, said he thinks the festival’s popularity and draw declined in recent years. “Am I sad about it? I don’t know,” Munson said. “That may sound like a strange answer. I think they overspent, overcharged people. They eliminated so much. They got rid of the dinner and some of the entertainment. The beer garden used to always have live entertainment. One year, the Kingsmen played. They don’t have any of that anymore.”last_img read more

first_img‘Lean this way. Smile a little.”That’s a quote from a Columbian photographer during a recent assignment. Not too complicated.Our photographers usually don’t make big demands on the people who appear on our pages or website.But national publications? That can be a laundry list of instructions. Really. A magazine staffer told Lori Volkman how to deal with her family’s laundry for two weeks.We recently wrote about Volkman’s transition from blogging Navy wife, while her husband Randy was in the Middle East, to an advocate for military families. We noted how the national media picked up on the Ridgefield woman’s writings at “Witty Little Secret.”National coverage included a story in the December 2011/January 2012 issue of Reader’s Digest. It ran with a family portrait of Lori Volkman, daughter Olivia and son Cooper … and a pile of laundry almost as tall as Cooper.When the Reader’s Digest art director called from New York to discuss the photo shoot at the Volkman home, Lori Volkman mentioned that she wasn’t exactly on top of the housework. She had five loads of unfolded laundry on her bed.“He said, ‘Don’t change a thing!’”So, “We pulled laundry from the pile (to wear) and I would add to the stack when I did another load.”Eventually, Volkman said, she moved the stack from the bed to the floor — “Clean laundry on the floor!” — until the Reader’s Digest photo team was due to arrive.last_img read more

first_imgThe development of two self-contained gaming hubs set to house the operations of Philippine Offshore Gaming Operators (POGO) is aimed at limiting interactions between Chinese workers and local Filipinos, according to a PAGCOR official.In an interview aired on Philippines television, PAGCOR’s Vice President of Offshore Gaming, Jose Tria, said the hubs are a response to complaints from Filipinos over alleged “unruly behavior” from POGO workers. “That is the reason why we came up with these POGO hubs. These will be self-contained communities (so we can limit the) interaction between Filipinos and foreign workers,” PhilStar reported Tria as staying.“As soon as … the private participation is able to set up these hubs, we will be canceling all their authority to operate outside these hubs. We will put them there so it is easier to monitor.”The hubs, to be established by online gaming giant Oriental Game, were first announced in July. Initial plans are for two of these self-contained communities to be developed – one in Clark and the other in Cavite – with PAGCOR chair Andrea Domingo stating at the time that they would make regulation of POGOs easier. POGO operators who relocate to the hubs will be offered five year licenses rather than the current three. 181 Chinese nationals arrested in dispute over POGO accreditation status China gives Philippines iGaming reprieve but POGOs not safe yet Strong VIP growth sees Okada Manila GGR climb 72% in August Load More RelatedPostslast_img read more

first_imgEmployee Benefits Connect 2016: Reward and benefit strategies will need to adapt to the changing workplace landscape if they are to meet the evolving requirements of the future workforce.Speaking in the closing keynote session titled ‘What is the digital future of the workplace and how different will it be?’ at Employee Benefits Connect on 9 March, Perry Timms, director, people and learning at Medio Zoo, adviser to the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development on social media, and founder of People and Transformational HR, explained what future innovations are likely to impact work and employees’ expectations. These range from the development of advanced robotics and artificial intelligence to the growth of alternative currencies and the gig economy. Other phenomena include the convergence of biology and technology for human augmentation, the development of synthetic beings to carry out work deemed unpleasant or dangerous, and how access to information uploads could allow people to think differently as the time and brain power required to recall information is reduced.Timms (pictured), said: “There’s something about how quickly these sorts of things are coming and taking over that means we need to pay heed to them.”Employees’ demands and expectations are also evolving, moving away from traditional concepts such as control, management and key performance indicators (KPIs), towards their own sense of value of the work that they perform. However, Timms does not believe these changing attitudes can only be found among younger generations.He said: “I don’t believe that generation Y is radically different from generation X. I think what’s happening is that [generation Y employees] are entering the workforce as the workplace is changing and as a result they have different views on things, and are connected and have operated in a slightly different way.”The tools that futurologists use can help employers to consider how the workplace will look in the future and how benefits approaches could adapt to embrace these changes. The primary tools include the analysis of data, examining the past and historical cycles, modelling scenarios, and searching for asymmetries.Timms said: “There’s a huge amount of predictive data out there now. We’ve got an enormous amount of data we can tap into about demographic shifts, about economic trends, about all sorts of areas, such as where people are spending their time and their habits. So we can use data to predict the future.“Asymmetries is the interesting concept that the future is already here, it’s just not in one place. Futurologists who know where to look know that there are already places pushing the boundaries and developing and delivering a future proposition,” he added.During the session, Timms set out his theory of the future of the work landscape. This includes seven elements: the digitalisation and socialisation of work; the decline of the job; the demise of the manager; the death of the hierarchy; the democratisation of learning; the disruption of the usual; the demand for craft.“HR needs to get itself fit for a digital age,” said Timms.This means looking beyond monetary rewards. He said: “You need to think about reward in an anthropological sense; how are we as human beings constructed and what can the reward industry do that gets into things like health and wellbeing, mental health and education.”He added: “Be as imaginative as possible with rewards. Be a reward explorer – look at what other people are doing.”last_img read more
