That is down 37,000 b/d from the week before and the first time in 13 weeks that production has fallen below 1 million b/d. The four-week average for ethanol production decreased to 1.049 million b/d for an annualized rate of 16.08 billion gallons. Stocks of ethanol were 22.7 million barrels. That is a 0.4% increase from last week and the largest reserves in 32 weeks. There were zero imports recorded for the fifth week in a row.Average weekly gasoline demand rebounded with a 1.9% increase to 370.2 million gallons (8.814 million barrels) daily. This is equivalent to 135.1 billion gallons annualized. However, refiner/blender input of ethanol again decreased, diminishing by 7.0% to 795,000 b/d. This is equivalent to 12.19 billion gallons annualized and therefore the weakest demand in more than two years (105 weeks). The ethanol content in gasoline supplied to the market averaged 9.02%, down from 9.88% the previous week. Ethanol’s share of the gasoline pool has not been this small since Dec. 4, 2015, which translates into a 162-week low.Expressed as a percentage of daily gasoline demand, daily ethanol production decreased to 11.30%.Source: RFA Home Indiana Agriculture News U.S. Weekly Ethanol Production Falls Below 1 Million Barrels Per Daylast_img read more

Out of these, the petitioners seek the evacuation of those persons whose visas have expired in the meantime, and also those belonging to vulnerable categories owing to ill-health, unemployment etc.M K Raghavan, in the petition filed through Advocate A. Karthik, made the following suggestions. A. Establishment of a specialised team in the Embassy in each of the GCC Nations and in India, solely dedicated to redress the concerns raised by the Indians in these nations, with traceable contact numbers and e-mail addresses in order to ensure timely assistance.B. Determination of the total number of citizens who are stranded & facing difficulties in GCC Nations and who are wanting to return to India. Assistance of various  organizations/individuals who are willing to offer their services may be availed for the same.C. Prioritising of urgent cases who need immediate repatriation like pregnant women, those suffering from serious illnesses, immuno-compromised, those who have to attend to any calamity in the family in India, those whose visas have expired, those who have lost their jobs, those whose sponsorship is being cancelled, those who have been tested negative for COVID-19 etc.;D. Financial assistance from the Union of India to ensure smooth repatriation for majority of those citizens, since most of them are engaged in blue collar jobs with daily/manual wages and would thus, not be in a financial position to fund their travel back home;E. Government initiatives to bring back desirous Indians stranded in GCC Nations may be ensured either through airways or waterways wherever possible;F. Lifting of ban on international flights and grant of specific approval for these special flights as there are many among the stranded population, who are desirous of returning to India at their own cost & expense, be it through commercial flight or through a chartered flight that maybe arranged by some operators;G. Ensuring timely decision-making with regard to grant of permission for airlines willing to assist the Government in ensuring the return of Indians stranded in GCC Nations and;H. Deputation of a medical team to GCC Nations to ensure adequate medical assistance is provided to those who are infected by COVID-19 with due regard to the laws and regulations of such nations.In addition to the above, the Congress legislator made the following proposals for the safety of those Indians upon return, as also to ensure the safety of others around them.A. Corona Rapid Test facility at all international airport checkpoints and other verification measures to ascertain whether or not the arriving passengers are carriers;B. Mandatory quarantining of such individuals who eventually return, as per the relevant protocols to ensure that they don’t hamper the efforts taken by India;C. Since it is the summer vacation, colleges and schools in the vicinity of the respective airports be converted into temporary quarantine centres for the people returning from abroad, in order to curtail the spread of COVID-19 to the local population and;D. Provision of ‘pay-and-use quarantine facility’ to accommodate those who are desirous of availing the same at their own cost & expense who can afford the same. Said option can be opted by the passenger during the time of booking their ticket.Pravasi Legal Cell, a welfare organization for NRIs, also sought for appropriate measure to ensure that migrant workers experiencing symptoms have access to timely testing and medical facilities.In addition, the organization sought arrangement for free medical consultation and counselling of the migrant labourers through online/ videoconferencing facility with the doctors in India. It also prayed for a scheme to ensure financial support for the families of the migrant labourers rendered jobless due to COVID19.  Next Storylast_img read more

  • Lawsuit alleges Ithaca police used excessive force during 2016 arrest

    first_img Devon Magliozzi is a reporter for the Ithaca Voice. Questions? Story tips? Contact her at [email protected] or 607-391-0328. More by Devon Magliozzi Your Crime & Courts news is made possible with support from: Devon Magliozzi As the officers told people to leave the apartment, Bechtold approached Goldstein and asked, “Alright, buddy you live here?” to which Goldstein answered, “Yes, I do,” according to the complaint’s summary of video footage. The plaintiff’s account says Bechtold then grabbed Goldstein’s right arm, while Goldstein continued talking with bystanders, before Allard also approached and grabbed Goldstein’s left arm.While handcuffed, Goldstein began calling for a nearby woman to get a video camera, before Allard tackled him to the floor and pinned him face down, the complaint alleges. It states several bystanders were in the room, including one woman named in the complaint, Julia Judge, who was pushed to the floor by Bechtold next to Goldstein.While on the floor Goldstein rolled from his stomach onto his back, though the complaint notes it is unclear whether he rolled of his own volition or was rolled over by Allard.Allard then allegedly pulled out a canister while holding Goldstein’s face and neck and sprayed his eyes pepper spray. “Allard’s hand is approximately six to eight inches away from Goldstein’s face, and the burst of pepper spray lasts approximately two seconds,” the complaint reads.Video footage also shows Bechtold pointing a taser at onlookers, the complaint says.Goldstein repeatedly requested help wiping pepper spray from his eyes and yelled in pain while officers brought him to the back of a cruiser and questioned him, before transporting him to the police station, the complaint says.Police charged Goldstein with obstruction of governmental administration and resisting arrest, alleging he pulled away from police, refused to confirm whether he was a resident of the apartment, and attempted to head-butt or bite Allard while on the floor, but the District Attorney’s office later dropped the charges.Goldstein was treated Nov. 19, 2016, for chemical conjunctivitis in both eyes and scleral abrasion in his left eye, the complaint says. He was diagnosed shortly after with severe abrasion/chemosis and almost complete epithelial loss. He has suffered permanent vision damage, the complaint says.Current Ithaca Police Chief Pete Tyler declined to comment, and City Attorney Ari Lavine did not respond to request for comment.Kopko has requested a jury trial and stated he will seek damages including compensation for medical expenses, emotional distress, and punitive damages, and will ask for injunctions against Allard, Bechtold, IPD and the City to prevent unlawful searches, detentions and arrests.A procedural hearing is scheduled for July 5, 2019, at the U.S. District Court in Binghamton.Featured image: A photo included in the complaint allegedly shows Goldstein on the ground while Allard administers pepper spray. (Provided photo) Tagged: edward kopko, ithaca police department, lawsuit, U.S. District Court ITHACA, N.Y. – On Nov. 17, 2016, officers from the Ithaca Police Department arrived at a Hudson Street apartment after receiving a noise complaint. Kyle Goldstein, a 21-year-old Ithaca College student at the time, was one of the hosts. In a lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court in Binghamton, Goldstein alleges police unlawfully entered his apartment, detained him, and pepper sprayed his eyes from inches away while he was lying on the ground handcuffed.The complaint filed by attorney Edward Kopko seeks to hold two IPD officers involved, as well as former Chief John Barber and the City of Ithaca, responsible “for deprivations of (Goldstein’s) constitutional rights by illegal police conduct and police brutality.”“We have filed suit in the U.S. District Court in order to vindicate his rights. He suffered as a result of the illegal arrest and excessive use of force,” Kopko said in an interview with The Ithaca Voice. “The complaint and evidence clearly demonstrate that he was on the ground, subdued by several police officers, his hands tucked behind his back, and defendant Allard sprayed him in the face with a caustic spray that has permanently destroyed a part of his cornea.”The lawsuit cites a total of six counts against officers Jacob Allard and Daniel Bechtold, Chief John Barber, and the City, including excessive use of force; deprivation of liberty without due process of the law; failure to intervene with regard to excessive use of force and deprivation of liberty without due process; malicious prosecution; and deliberately indifferent policies, policies, practices, customs, training and supervision in violation of the fourth and fourteenth amendments.Based on a review of the footage from body cameras worn by Allard and Bechtold, the plaintiff’s complaint offers a story of escalating use of force by officers after entering Goldstein’s apartment without permission.Allard and Bechtold responded to the noise complaint at about 11:30 p.m. Nov. 17, 2016. According to the complaint, footage shows them wishing several partygoers a safe night as they approached 702 Hudson St., before asking a woman if she knew who lived at the house. After she answered, “I don’t know,” Allard and Bechtold entered through the front door. last_img read more

  • Famous Faces and Places

    first_imgSnowboarding Stefan Virginia homegrown mega jam rockers the Dave Matthews Band rarely tour in the winter, so band bassist Stefan Lessard has plenty of time to play in the snow. But recently the avid snowboarder was able to turn his love of gliding through powder into an appearance in Warren Miller’s ski flick, Children of Winter. In the film Lessard joins a cast that includes Olympic Gold Medalist Jonny Moseley and World Cup speedster Daron Rahlves and rides in Okemo, Vermont, with actor Jason Biggs and fellow musicians Eric Fawcett of N.E.R.D, Adam Gardner of Guster, and Ed Robertson of The Barenaked Ladies, before the boys jam in an impromptu classic rock cover band. Frazier’s Cold Mountain The world became familiar with North Carolina’s Cold Mountain in 1997 when Asheville native Charles Frazier wrote a best-selling novel of the same name. Notoriety for the remote peak only became greater when a blockbuster movie adaptation of the book starring Nicole Kidman and Jude Law came out in 2005 Though the movie was filmed mostly in Romania, the actual Cold Mountain on which the book and movie are based is located right in your Blue Ridge backyard. Cold Mountain is 40 miles southwest of Asheville in the Shining Rock Wilderness Area of Pisgah National Forest. Since Cold Mountain is designated as wilderness, it remains primitive and largely undisturbed, much as it was during the Civil War. Its wilderness status also protects it from hordes of movie-crazed tourists likely to seek out the mountain. To reach the 6,030-foot mountain summit requires a strenuous 20-mile roundtrip hike along overgrown, poorly marked trails. Frazier continues to write about the region. In 2007 he published 13 Moons about the Cherokee Indians of Western North Carolina. An avid mountain biker, he also loves to explore the outdoors of his regional muse. He told a local newspaper that last year he rode over 1,500 miles in the Dupont State Forest and the Bent Creek Experimental Forest. • SparksNicholas2008_FIX burgerbar_FIX Run, Andie, Run Veteran actress and Asheville, N.C., resident Andie MacDowell (a.k.a. “Rose Anderson”) ran in the 2006 Shut-In Ridge Trail Run, one of the toughest trail races in the region. The 17.8-mile race climbs 3,000 feet to Mount Pisgah along rocky, technical singletrack. Although MacDowell stopped after 10 miles, she covered some steep terrain and gained the hard-earned respect of the mountain trail running community. The Shut-In Ridge Trail Run is held on the first week of each November along the Mountains to Sea Trail between Asheville and Mount Pisgah, and the capped field of 200 runners usually fills within 24 hours. Woody & Willie Fight MTR Getting the general public to pay attention to mountaintop removal mining (MTR) in Appalachia has been a daunting task for many community groups being marginalized by its devastating effects. In 2006 the nonprofit Appalachian Voices launched ilovemountains.org, a national Internet-based campaign to end mountaintop removal and clearly map out the 470 mountains and hundreds of thousands of acres that have perished for easy access to coal. Fortunately the effort was given a big initial push by two well-known celebrities—actor Woody Harrelson and country music legend Willie Nelson. PPL_4506_DxO_FIX andie3.jpg_FIX 709705.tif Mountain Lake Dries Up Mountain Lake—the small idyllic resort camp just outside of Blacksburg, Va.,—will forever be famously known as the film site for Dirty Dancing. Vestron Pictures took over the resort for three weeks in the fall of 1986 and turned Mountain Lake into the fictitious Kellerman’s Resort. Every year tourists still make the pilgrimage to the Southwestern Virginia Mountains to see where Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey showcased their acrobatic dance moves to the sappy sounds of “The Time of My Life.” The resort actually hosts a series of annual Dirty Dancing Weekends, which includes film location tours and lessons in the art of seductive swinging. But this past year visitors were shocked when they found that Mountain Lake’s namesake had actually dried up. One of only two natural lakes in Virginia, Mountain Lake was formed 6,000 years ago out of a semi-permeable subterranean dam that resulted from a natural shift in rock formations. Groundwater from the high mountain basin is constantly flowing in and out of the lake. Due to the ongoing drought, the lake has dried up almost completely, leaving a barren bedrock expanse. Scientists believe Mountain Lake is one of a few in the world that naturally drains and refills. It could be many years before lake levels return to normal. Celebrity Sites and Sightings Across Appalachia Running SparksEven the tough guys well up during The Notebook, Nicholas Sparks’ tear-jerking, best-selling novel that later was adapted into a blockbuster film that grossed more than $115 million worldwide. After The Notebook, Sparks wrote a string of international best-sellers, four of which were turned into films, including last year’s Nights in Rodanthe. But although the acclaimed author has become known to millions as a master of sappy romance, he is actually a pretty tough guy himself. The avid runner and weightlifter holds a track record at the University of Notre Dame, where a running scholarship paid his tuition. Last year he spread his passion for running by dishing out nearly a million dollars to build a track for a high school in his hometown of New Bern, N.C. But Sparks didn’t stop with a typical gesture of celebrity donation. He actually volunteers as a coach at New Bern High and has helped the track program become one of the most competitive in the state. Bristol’s Famous Burger? In downtown Bristol—the small border city that straddles the Virginia-Tennessee line—locals will point you toward the Burger Bar for not only one of the best things on a bun but also for a taste of country music legend. There’s a well-circulated story that late country pioneer Hank Williams had his last meal at the Burger Bar before dying in a car on his way to play a New Year’s Day gig in Canton, Ohio, in 1952. A few years ago, though, a reporter from The Tennessean did some digging and found that the Burger Bar was actually a dry cleaners at the time of Williams’s fateful last road trip. Driver Charles Carr believes he and Williams did stop in Bristol for gas and a bite, but he doesn’t recall the burger joint. After realizing the ill Williams was unresponsive he stopped at a hospital in Oak Hill, West Virginia, where the country icon was pronounced dead. Current owners of the Burger Bar still play on the Williams’s legend with memorabilia of the musician on the walls and themed meat patty concoctions based on his songs. Harrelson became concerned with mountaintop removal after attending the Hartwood Forest Council in Kentucky, where he met with local residents who are having their land, water quality, and health diminished by the improper disposal of coal slurry. “Woody was moved when he heard these stories, so he contacted me to see what he could do to help,” says Mary Anne Hitt, the former Director of Appalachian Voices, who now runs a national coal campaign for the Sierra Club. Harrelson recorded an interview for a short video to launch ilovemountains. His participation helped the movement attract a widespread audience and, to date, over 100,000 people have viewed the video online. To enhance the film, Nelson, another staunch advocate for an end to MTR, recorded an exclusive cover of Bob Dylan’s protest classic “Blowin’ in the Wind,” which played in the background. Cash on the Mountain In the mid 70s Johnny Cash was riding an unprecedented wave of country music super stardom. In June of 1974 his performance at Grandfather Mountain’s Singing on the Mountain drew one of the largest crowds in the annual gospel festival’s history. This picture was taken by Hugh Morton, Grandfather’s longtime owner, who passed away in 2006. Morton was a well-known conservationist and photographer, who published multiple books of photos that highlighted North Carolina’s natural settings and famous faces. Before his death, Morton donated his photo archives to the North Carolina Collection Photographic Archives at his alma mater, UNC-Chapel Hill. The original copy of the photo, which appears in Morton’s 1998 book Making a Difference in North Carolina, was unearthed last fall from the multiple shoeboxes of pictures the archivists were given to rummage through. More gems like this will continue to surface over the next few years and be posted on the website A View to Hugh: Processing the Hugh Morton Photographs and Films (lib.unc.edu/blogs/morton/). . cold mountain_FIX dirty_dancing_FIXlast_img read more

  • API: U.S. LNG exports cut GHG emissions in power production

    first_imgThe study goes over scenarios that vary by fuel source origination including, natural gas produced in the US (Marcellus and Permian), Australia, and Mozambique, natural gas pipelined from Russia, and domestically produced or imported coal. “This study underscores what we have known for quite some time – that U.S. natural gas is a far cleaner option than coal for electricity generation, especially in key markets in China, Germany and India,” API director of market development Dustin Meyer said. Looking at cases in China, Germany and India, the study, “Update to the Life-Cycle Analysis of GHG Emissions for US LNG Exports,” demonstrates the importance of natural gas for achieving global emissions reductions. The study conducted by researchers at ICF examines the environmental benefits of U.S. natural gas use in China, Germany, and India, finding that using U.S. liquefied natural gas (LNG) rather than coal for electricity generation produces on average 50.5 per cent fewer greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in all base case scenarios studied. Coal generation in the U.S. has fallen from roughly 50 per cent in 2005 to 24 percent in 2019, while natural gas generation has increased from 19 per cent to nearly 40 per cent in the same period. This transition has been instrumental to the U.S. reducing emissions in the power sector by 25 per cent from 2008 to 2018. A study commissioned by the American Petroleum Institute (API) stressed that using U.S. liquefied natural gas (LNG) in power generation significantly cuts GHG emissions. center_img Courtesy of Cheniere In China, coal still makes up 66 percent of power generation – in India, it’s 74 per cent, and in Germany it also remains high – nearly 30 per cent. Emission impacts of imported LNG are comparable across each source country considered for each market. For Germany and China, LNG exports from the US and other countries have GHG emissions that fall within a compared range as natural gas exported by pipeline from Russia, with the exception of the “High Methane Leaks” and “High GWP” sensitivity scenarios. These scenarios cause a substantial increase in estimated GHG emissions from Russian pipeline gas. All coal scenarios produce larger emissions than all considered LNG/NG scenarios.last_img read more

  • Rushville & Connersville

    first_imgIt is interesting to me that Rushville joined the EIAC.  In the past few years, Rushville was dropping almost all of the EIAC schools with the exception of Greensburg and Batesville because they said it was too far to travel to play the rest of the league.  Then, all of a sudden, meetings were started on the discussion of expanding the EIAC.  There was that same Rushville petitioning to join.  There must have been an obvious change in administration or I don’t think this would have happened.  That is why I stated in yesterday’s article that it will be interesting to see if they play every school in the EIAC in every sport unless it has a one-day playoff.  Connersville definitely wanted out of their old conference, and again, because of a declining enrollment they were interested in getting into the EIAC where their enrollment is much more comparable to most of the other schools.  I am sure that all the athletic directors worked many hours making the schedules work.  I don’t know of any conference that has the policy our football teams have adopted.  We are not going to have an overall champion but a 4A and a 3A champ.last_img read more
