EPA  Continues to Delay on E-15 Ruling

first_img By Gary Truitt – May 31, 2018 SHARE EPA  Continues to Delay on E-15 RulingOn June 1, E-15, a higher blend of ethanol fuel, will no longer be sold in Indiana this summer without last minute EPA action. This is just the latest anti-ethanol move made by the EPA. When EPA administrator Scott Pruitt visited Indiana several months ago, he promised Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb and a gathering of Indiana farm leaders that things would be different at the EPA. Yet, it seems it is the same old policies guiding the agency.Brian JenningsThis week, several ethanol groups and the NCGA took the agency to court accusing them of secretly granting waivers to refiners that allow them to blend less ethanol. Brian Jennings ,with the American Coalition for Ethanol, told HAT that the EPA continues to give the oil industry everything wants, “These waivers have been granted to 30 different refineries.”“EPA is trying to undermine the RFS program under the cover of night,” said Bob Dinneen, CEO and President of RFA. “And there’s a reason it has been done in secret – it’s because EPA is acting in contravention of the statute and its own regulations, methodically destroying the demand for renewable fuels. With the little information we’ve been able to piece together through secondary sources, it’s clear that EPA has been extending these exemptions to refineries that didn’t qualify for them.”“EPA left us with no choice but to challenge their systematic cuts to ethanol blending in the U.S. by distorting the intent of the law to grant secret hardship waivers to refineries which in some cases exceed the definition of ‘small’ and fall short of demonstrating ‘disproportionate economic hardship,’” said Jennings. “We cannot sit by and allow EPA to violate the RFS which requires increasing the use of renewable fuels in the U.S.”In addition to waivers, the agency continues to delay the removal of regulations that prevent the sale of E-15 blended gasoline during summer months. Jennings says what ethanol wants is the ability to see E-15 year round, “We want to see E-15 sold year round to everyone like it should be.” The Trump administration continues to make statements in support of ethanol, but Jennings says that talk is not followed up with action, “We don’t need any more happy talk, we need action.”Indiana Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch says year round sales of E-15 would be good for Indiana farmers, “Having E-15 available all year provides a greater opportunity for Indiana farmers to grow the demand for their corn and grow their income.” It would also be good for Indiana motorists since it would lower the cost of gasoline. Currently, ethanol costs about 70 cents per gallon less than gasoline.

The statute though inspired by traditional values,has to be interpreted strictly, the bench held.”That the children should look after their parents, as a principle or a value, require no validation from scriptures or philosophical sources. The Act attempts to provide a dignified existence to the elderly and in drawing the contours of the power conferred under Section 23(1) we have to necessarily be conscious of the inter-play of the rights of the senior citizen and that of the beneficiaries to a transaction; of those acquired on property as regulated by various statutes”, the Full Bench of the High Court held. The special leave petitions have challenged the view taken by the Full Bench of the High Court as a “hyper-technical and restrictive interpretation of Section 23, contrary to the object sought to be achieved by the Legislature”.”The High Court, in nutshell, has held that an express recital should be present in the deed of transfer to the effect that the transferees shall provide the basic amenities and ‘physical needs to the transferor which is highly unjustified and depriving the rights of senior citizens who are otherwise deprived by the children of their valuable properties”, one of the petitions said. The petitioners highlighted that different High Courts have taken conflicting views on the matter.  The petitioners’ lawyers highlighted the fact that the judgment of Kerala High Court is conflicting/divergent from the Judgments of High Court of Punjab and Haryana, Madras High Court and Karnataka High Court and that the issue will need to be adjudicated and settled by the Supreme Court of India. The SLPs are majorly filed on the grounds that there is no requirement to provide basic amenities and basic physical needs expressely in writing in the transfer deed;Such condition defeats the Object and Reasons of the Act;The Impugned failed to consider Proviso 2 and 3 of Section 92 of Evidence Act which permits the parties to lead oral evidence on which a document is silent and not inconsistent with its terms;That the High Court wile considering the aspect of Transfer of Property Act failed to consider Section 23(2) of the Senior Citizens Act. “The statute was formulated in the wake of increasing number of cases in which senior citizens and parents were being abandoned by their own children/relatives after having transferred their assets to them. The senior citizens were thus violated of their fundamental right to live with dignity in their twilight years and the aforesaid aspects led to the enactment of the Senior Citizens Act. Therefore, it is submitted that any interpretation of the act must do justice to its legislative intent and objective, especially considering the fact that the Senior Citizens Act is a beneficial and welfare legislation. Any reading of the act must necessarily be made in such manner that it benefits the senior citizen in question”, the plea read.  Next Storylast_img read more

Racist doctor selection a ‘shameful waste of talent’

first_img Previous Article Next Article Racist doctor selection a ‘shameful waste of talent’On 26 Jun 2001 in Personnel Today Personnel managers need to be more involved in the recruitment of doctorsaccording to a health charity, which claims that Asian and black doctors arefar less likely to be chosen for the best jobs than their white colleagues. A new book by independent health charity King’s Fund, Racism in medicine: Anagenda for change, also states that doctors from ethnic minorities are morelikely to be working in unpopular specialties and in inner-city generalpractices and are far less likely to be consultants. Naaz Coker, King’s Fund race and diversity director, claims black and Asiandoctors are angry about the discrimination they face, and said health serviceHR staff should take an active part in recruiting doctors. He said, “This is a shameful waste of talent. Doctors from black andminority ethnic groups are still being sidelined. Harassment and bullying, fromcolleagues and patients, are daily facts of life. “The profession’s leaders must act now to tackle racist behaviour amongtheir ranks and promote equal opportunities for all.” Lew Swift, head of HR at the Walton Centre for Neuro-science andNeuro-surgery, agrees with the report’s recommendation, but said he had notcome across institutionalised racial discrimination in the health service. But he said, “If the survey is correct, then it is obviouslyunacceptable and must be stamped out, though racial discrimination may well beregionalised”. Related posts:No related photos.

Re-assessing copepod growth using the Moult Rate method

first_imgEstimating growth and production rates of mesozooplankton, and copepods in particular, is important in describing flows of material and energy though pelagic systems. Over the past 30 years, the Moult Rate (MR) method has been used to estimate juvenile copepod growth rates in ∼40 papers. Yet the MR method has been shown to have serious flaws. Here we re-examine the results from the majority of published MR method studies and re-estimate growth rates using the modified Moult Rate (MMR) method, which ascribes changes in mass to the appropriate time period over which it was accrued. The MR method has typically over-estimated growth rates (on 80% of occasions) for life stages where the subsequent stage is actively moulting; the median and mean MR values are 138 and 164%, respectively, of the corrected MMR values. We were unable to correct the original data for life stages that are followed by a non-moulting stage, e.g. copepodite stage 5 to adult. We performed experiments with Calanus pacificus to estimate growth of stage C5 using an alternative method. We found that the error size and sign varied between mass type (i.e. DW, C and N). Recommendations for practical future assessments of growth in copepods are madelast_img read more

This manufactured crisis was an unwelcome and unnecessary distraction from our critical work of keeping the country safe.I know that each of your lives has been disrupted and affected in different ways. I regret the impact that this shutdown had on so many of our civilian personnel, particularly those who I was previously unable to recall from emergency furlough.Starting today, we will be welcoming all of our civilians back to their normal duties. To those returning from furlough: know that the work you perform is incredibly valued by your military teammates and by me. I appreciate your professionalism and your patience during this difficult period of time, which came on top of last summer’s sequestration-related furloughs. Your managers will have more information about this, but I can assure you that you will be paid in full for the time you were furloughed during the shutdown.Now that this latest budget crisis has come to an end, we have an opportunity to return to focusing on the critical work of this department. Unfortunately, Congress did not end the budget uncertainty that has cast such a shadow of uncertainty over this department for much of the year. In the months ahead, they will have an opportunity to do so. My hope is that they will realize that these kinds of crises do great damage to our people, our national security, our economy, and America’s standing in the world. Congress has a responsibility to govern, and it must fulfill those basic responsibilities in order to keep our country strong.[mappress]Press Release, October 18, 2013; Image: US Navy View post tag: Navylast_img read more
