SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE By Andy Eubank – Jul 17, 2014 Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Farm Bureau Releases Document Detailing Issues with Proposed WOTUS Rule Previous articleNCGA’s President’s Award Presented to House Energy Committee MemberNext articleEPA Official Discusses WOTUS and RFS Andy Eubank Farm Bureau Releases Document Detailing Issues with Proposed WOTUS Rule The American Farm Bureau Federation and several state Farm Bureaus have met with the Environmental Protection Agency repeatedly – according to AFBF President Bob Stallman – and each time – agency officials have declined to grapple with the serious, real world implications of the rule. Now – he says EPA is engaged in an intensive public relations campaign – and AFBF believes its statements are directly contrary to the reality of the proposed Waters of the U.S. rule. That’s why Farm Bureau has released a comprehensive document responding to inaccurate and misleading comments made about EPA’s latest rule to Congress. The document explains how the rule would give EPA broad Clean Water Act jurisdiction over dry land features and farming practices long declared off-limits by Congress and the Supreme Court. Stallman says Farm Bureau is dedicated to communicating to farmers, their elected representatives and the public how the proposed rule will impose costly and time-intensive federal permitting regimes on commonplace and essential practices U.S. farmers and ranchers depend on. Farm Bureau hopes the document will contribute to the ongoing discussion in Congress regarding the rule and its implications not just for farming – but the entire U.S. economy.Source: NAFB News Service
Ramires and Eden Hazard gave the Blues a 2-0 lead which Shaun Maloney halved after 58 minutes, before Lampard’s 86th-minute strike saw him move to within four of Bobby Tambling’s club goalscoring record of 202. Substitute Marko Marin then added a stoppage-time fourth as Chelsea. “We deserved to win,” Benitez said. “To win is something you have to do. Top sides, if you want to win something, you have to be consistent winning. It’s normal. But it’s not the end of the world if you draw a game you deserve to win. The problem for me would be if we don’t create chances; we create chances every game.” Press Association Rafael Benitez expressed delight after Frank Lampard scored his 198th Chelsea goal in a 4-1 victory over Wigan to end a four-match winless run and ease the pressure on the interim boss. He went on: “We score goals. We’re making some mistakes, but we have a lot of positives. Today four goals could be six goals at the end.” The result is likely to at least delay Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich, who is not renowned for his patience, reaching for the trigger. Benitez was unfazed. “It was just speculation,” he said. “Nobody is in contact with the owner to find out if he says this or that. It is my job: try to win every game. That’s it, so I have to concentrate on that.” There was a moment of alarm when, with Chelsea leading 2-1, the visitors had a penalty appeal declined after Ronnie Stam’s shot struck Ashley Cole on the arm and Wigan boss Roberto Martinez reckons officials should be given further guidance for such incidents. “The referees need a bit of clarity,” Martinez said. “I tell my defenders not to put themselves in a position where it could be a penalty. The defender should have had his arm ‘attached’ to his body. Clearly the arm wasn’t. “But it’s down to the interpretation of the referee. It’s a difficult call.”
The Lakers seem to have considered dealing Lonzo Ball to the Bulls.Los Angeles and the Bulls had ‘initial conversations’ about the 21-year-old guard before the trade deadline, according to a report from the Chicago Sun-Times, which cites an unnamed league executive. Lonzo Ball reportedly planned to undergo unauthorized surgery in February Los Angeles was reportedly discussing acquiring star Anthony Davis after he asked the Pelicans to move him in late January. Ball was also reportedly included in the Lakers offers to New Orleans.Ball, however, reportedly did not want to be sent to the Pelicans and instead was hoping to be traded to the Bulls or Knicks while he was also linked with the Suns. But, no deal was ultimately reached, and Ball remained with the Lakers. Related News Lakers will talk to 76ers assistant Monty Williams about head coaching vacancy, report says Los Angeles guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope said the rumors had an impact on the team.”At the trade deadline, everybody kind of lost themselves,” Caldwell-Pope said last week, via ESPN. “That’s all they were worried about. … And I feel like after that, everybody kind of relaxed, calmed down and just started playing basketball and not worrying about the outside talk.”Ball, the No. 2 pick in the 2017 draft, was limited to just 47 games in 2018-19 as he sprained his ankle in late January and never returned to the court. He finished the season averaging 9.9 points and 5.4 assists.“Obviously it’s been a long process,” Ball said recently about the injury. “It’s finally starting to show some great progress, coming along. Hopefully just a few more weeks and then I can go out there.”Lakers president Magic Johnson stunningly announced he was resigning from his position last week before the team’s final game of the season. Ball said he supported Johnson’s decision. “It shocked me, like it did the rest of the world,” Ball said. “It’s what’s best for him. I wish him the best. He drafted me, and this is better for his life. This is what he wants to do, and I’m behind him 100 percent.”The Bulls will be looking for a point guard again this offseason, according to the Sun-Times’ report.

15 September 2011South African retailer Woolworths has formed a joint venture in Tanzania and Uganda with Tanzanian businessman and former franchise partner Ali Mufuruki, in an effort to accelerate its expansion into the rest of the continent.“Joint ventures with local partners is the new business model for our pan-African expansion plans,” Woolworths’ retail operations director Glenn Gilzean said in a statement last week. “We are moving away from the franchise model we had in the past.“It’s not only a better profit model for our business, but it’s also better for our customers.”Increasing store sizesWoolworths currently has one store in Uganda and three in Tanzania, and will add another store in Uganda and a further two in Tanzania by the end of the year.Woolworths aims to open 16 stores in African countries this year, taking the total number of stores to 60 in the current financial year.
