Racing Metro too strong for Brive in Paris

first_imgFriday Apr 2, 2010 Racing Metro too strong for Brive in Paris Racing Metro played Brive last weekend in what was a return to Top 14 action for the French players, and some English, who took part in the Six Nations recently. The Paris based side found some much needed form with a tight 25-18 win.South African Francois Steyn landed two first half penalties and a left-footed dropgoal as Racing looked to be fully in control of the match. It turned though with 10 minutes left in the half though as Steyn was yellow carded for an apparent spear tackle.Brive took advantage with Retief Uys scoring a try before half time, but it was Steyns boot, as well as that of Andrew Mehrtens, that sent them into the break 12-8 up.Grand Slam winner Sebastien Chabal and Fijian winger Sireli Bobo both scored second half tries as the score went to 25-8. Brive came back strong though, with a try from England international Jamie Noon and a later penalty from Alexis Palisson.Racing picked up only their second win in seven matches this year, much to the delight of Chabal, who came into the match on a high.“I came into the match in good form and we were determined not to repeat our performance from our last match and decided to play a lot more with the ball today,” said Chabal.“This we did and you can see the results. The match against Biarritz in a fortnight could be pivotal to who makes the last place but with our team spirit and enthusiasm I believe it will be us,” he added.

first_imgGrantmakers launch collaborative to improve global safeguarding practices Melanie May | 18 March 2021 | News Tagged with: safeguarding In addition, members have opportunities to invest in evidence-based initiatives to improve global safeguarding practices, including small grants to local civil society organisations to advance approaches grounded in local cultures and realities. The FSC will support a pilot programme in Uganda and subsequently scale grantmaking to other countries, taking what it calls ‘a power-shifting approach that fosters more equitable relationships between funders and grantees’.Global Fund for Children President and CEO John Hecklinger said:“Together, we can help ensure the safety and wellbeing of the children, youth, and communities we work with around the world. By recognising and amplifying local knowledge and practices, and creating a platform for sharing what works, the FSC will foster the development of organisational cultures and systems that protect young people and others vulnerable to abuse from harm.”FSC Director Karen Walker-Simpson added:“We know that an abundance of knowledge and expertise already exists within civil society organisations and the communities they serve. The FSC will act as a catalyst for change by creating shared spaces to listen and learn from others and opportunities for funders to invest in positive practices.”FSC membership is open to charitable trusts and foundations, intermediary funders that dedicate at least 50% of their budgets to grantmaking and grantee support, and funder networks that wish to promote safeguarding as part of their work.The FSC will also engage community-based civil society organisations, researchers, government agencies, and others with expertise in this area, including individuals with lived experience. These stakeholders will have the opportunity to contribute to the design of its strategies and services, and to engage in dialogue with members through webinars and discussion forums. This engagement is part of a broader effort to shift power in philanthropy and foster trust-based funder-grantee relationships.The FSC is housed within Global Fund for Children, which provides administrative support and technical expertise to develop and grow the collaborative.

Russia Bans U.S. Beef and Pork Over Ractopamine

first_imgSource: NAFB News Service SHARE By Gary Truitt – Jan 31, 2013 Home Indiana Agriculture News Russia Bans U.S. Beef and Pork Over Ractopamine Facebook Twitter SHAREcenter_img On the heels of an agreement between the U.S. and Japan on beef – Russia is going to begin banning imports of U.S. pork and beef. The decision was based on the possibility the meats may contain the feed additive ractopamine. Russia’s food-safety agency says the U.S. Food Safety and Inspection Service was unable to guarantee that shipments would be free of ractopamine. According to the Federal Customs Service – U.S. shipments of chilled and frozen pork to Russia in 2011 were 59,680 tons – almost nine-percent of total national imports of the meat. Exports of chilled and frozen beef were 39-thousand tons – 6.5-percent of total imports.

Purdue Soybean Research Efforts Showcased

first_img SHARE By Andy Eubank – Jul 27, 2017 Purdue Soybean Research Efforts Showcased Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Purdue Soybean Research Efforts Showcased Martin on soy showcaseThe 2017 Purdue Soybean Showcase was held yesterday at the Beck Agricultural Center in West Lafayette, and Purdue and the Indiana Soybean Alliance showcased research that farmers help support with soybean checkoff dollars.Dr. Marshall Martin, director of the Purdue Soybean Center said one of the focuses was on the importance of canopy closure on the soybean plant.“That’s one thing we can measure with our drones,” he explained. “We can measure, say you had 30-inch rows from planting date as you move towards the harvest date, how does the canopy close, and what’s the relation between the photosynthetic activity and the amount of leaf surface that’s converting the energy of the sun and the nutrients in the soil into pod development and eventually the soybeans the farmer wants to sell. We’re finding there are certain correlation relationships between canopy closure and those final yields. That’s important in earlier selection of varieties and speeding up the process of breeding and bringing new varieties and new technology to the farmer.”Many different soybean production and supply and demand topics were covered since the soybean center research touches so many areas.“We’re trying to give an overview of the whole supply-demand spectrum of soybean production processing and use and the various kinds of research that we are conducting to enhance as best we can, new uses, new demand, as well as improvement of productivity, disease resistance and new attributes or traits like the high oleic soybean oil.”And Martin was excited to show attendees the work being done at the automated phenotyping center, the Indiana Corn and Soybean Innovation Center.“We’re one of the few places in the world doing this kind of thing and have it integrated so well with our traditional breeding, but we’ve brought in the aviation department to help in the area of the drones. We’ve brought in the electrical engineering people to develop the hyperspectral analysis and all of these really sophisticated cameras that are helping us manage massive amounts of data. We’re talking terabytes of data. That’s like counting the sand on the beach.The annual showcase alternates between corn and soybeans.Aly Wells, director of Production and Environment, Indiana Soybean Alliance added, “The Indiana Soybean Alliance remains focused on supporting on-farm research and tools that help soybean farmers maximize their farms’ performance while also being good stewards of the land. We always appreciate seeing the progress that is being made.”About Purdue University Soybean CenterThe mission of the Purdue Soybean Center is to address emerging global challenges throughout the soybean value chain using innovative multidisciplinary approaches with collaboration between industry, government, non-profits, and academic institutions.

The agency says the goal of this modification is to, “help preserve credit loss protection on the loans without unwinding the protection paid for through CRT transactions.”The second announcement was that the agency has extended the deadline for the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) to December 31, 2018. This is the fourth time HARP has been extended. FHFA estimates that HARP could still help more than 143,000 homeowners refinance their home.Finally, FHFA release its Q2 2017 Refinance Report which shows that the volume of total refinances was on the rise in June due to a dip in mortgage rates during May, which fell to 4.01 percent for a 30-year fixed rate. Rates continued to fall in June, settling at 3.90 percent.In the second quarter refinances through HARP amounted to a total of 9,707 completed refinances, bringing the total to a staggering 3,470,804 since the program was created. The nearly 10,000 refinances represent about 3 percent of the total refinance volume across the nation. In Nevada and Florida, HARP refinances account for 6 percent.Eligibility requirements for HARP remain unchanged: loans must have been originated on or before May 31, 2009 and be guaranteed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Current loan-to-value ratio must be over 80 percent, and the borrower must be current on their mortgage payment with no more than one late payment in the past 12 months, and that must not have occurred 6 months prior to the refinance request.You can find details FHFA’s announcements here, and the full Q2 Refinance Report here.

The plea has been filed by a Head Master from Latur District in Maharashtra, Dr. Jagannath Shamrao Patil, stating that in the absence of specific norms/ criteria as referred above, several eligible and deserving personalities are often deprived from the nomination process. The Petitioner has drawn the Court’s attention towards clause 5 of Article 171 (Composition of the Legislative Councils) of the Constitution, which reads as follows: The members to be nominated by the Governor under sub clause (e) of clause (3) shall consist of persons having special knowledge or practical experience in respect of such matters as the following, namely: Literature, science, art, cooperative movement and social service. Emphasizing on the word “shall” the Petitioner has submitted, “there are no norms yet framed or finalized by the respondents 16 for the purpose of the making the nominations from the above five prescribed categories and thus the political parties who are in governance are taking the undue advantage of this loophole and are making the recommendations of the names of the persons who are not from the prescribed category but who are either powerful in politics or to whom the political parties want to make powerful by way of such nomination.” It is argued that there is no process in existence to verify that the persons who are recommended by the State Government possess such special knowledge or practical experience in the said subjects. It is urged that the traditional practices followed by political parties in nomination of MLAs should cease and appointments should be made by way of “absolute discretion” of the Governor, as prescribed in the Constitution. It is argued, “If the recommendations made by the council of Ministers for the purpose of nomination under Article 171(5) of the Constitution of India are allowed to be considered as sole criteria then same will amount to amending the provision of Article 171(5) of the Constitution of India and carving out a new exception for the nominations…” The plea has been filed through Dr. RR Deshpande & Associates. An interim prayer has been made to restrict the Maharashtra Government from intervening in the process of nomination during the pendency and final hearing of the petition.
