Speaking in his keynote address to the Liberal Democrat party conference, Clegg said the party had not “lost its soul” by signing up to a Conservative-led government.He said swingeing spending cuts were the “only choice” if Britain is to plug its yawning Budget deficit, and accused the former Labour government of bringing “the country to the brink of bankruptcy”. But Clegg’s speech was overshadowed by a massive revolt over the coalition’s schools policy. Party members overwhelmingly passed a motion opposing plans to create more academies and free schools, which are free from local authority control. The motion, which took party leaders by surprise, said there was a risk that the new schools would increase “social divisiveness and inequity in a system that is already unfair”.The defeat is particularly troubling for the Liberal Democrats because members are supposed to set official party policy at conference. That means the party leadership is in the uncomfortable position of promoting a policy that has been vetoed by grass roots members. Clegg was forced to hastily rewrite part of his speech following the revolt. He insisted the policy – which has been enthusiastically backed by both coalition parties – was compatible with Liberal Democrat values. He said: “It wouldn’t be a Liberal Democrat conference if we didn’t have a motion that provoked strong passions on both sides. The great thing is that all Liberal Democrats share a passion for education.”DEMOCRATIC TRADITION POSES HEADACHE FOR LIB DEM MINISTERSFor most parties, a grass roots revolt wouldn’t be much of a problem.?Tony Blair was famous for pursuing policies that upset rank-and-file Labour members, while David Cameron has taken the Tories in a direction that has annoyed many among the party faithful.But the Lib Dems are different. Their conference is seen first and foremost as a policy-making forum. If members don’t like a policy, the leaders are supposed to drop it. Nick Clegg even had to ballot members at an emergency assembly before he went into a coalition with the Tories.The Lib Dem leadership is in an incredibly tricky position. Now that the motion attacking academies and free schools has been passed, the party is supposed to campaign against the policy. But the legislation has already been passed and Lib Dem schools minister Sarah Teather (pictured) is responsible for ensuring it is effective.The democratic tradition has attracted members interested in setting policy rather than simply carrying cards. But it is a headache for a party that is now in government – not opposition.
KCS-content Sunday 3 October 2010 10:27 pm whatsapp Share whatsapp Show Comments ▼ TESCO’S plans to sell mortgages in Britain could face a delay because it has yet to receive approval from the country’s financial services watchdog.“The FSA (Financial Services Authority) is just being careful. It is a new process and it is very difficult,” a Tesco spokesman said.He declined to comment on a report in a Sunday newspaper that Tesco’s plans to enter the home loans market could be delayed by up to 12 months.Tesco, Britain’s biggest retailer, had originally hoped to start selling mortgages late this year. However, it was recently reported that the group was aiming to launch a home loans product in March.The company, which reports first-half results tomorrow, is building up its banking and insurance business, and is expected to launch a fixed-rate savings account later this month, and a current account next year.Only last week Tesco Bank, which is led by Benny Higgins, agreed a £59m deal that will see Fortis UK provide travel insurance to some 170,000 customers each year. A year ago the pair announced a similar tie-up on motor and household insurance.

Total assets under management now amount to £1.24 bn.

Mortgage loans at 8-month high THE number of mortgages approved for house purchase rose to an eight-month high during March as activity in the property market showed signs of picking up, figures have revealed.A total of 31,660 loans were approved for people buying a new home, five per cent more than during the previous month and the highest level since July last year, according to the British Bankers’ Association. Despite the improvement, the figure is still 10 per cent lower than the number of loans approved in March last year.

The assignment consisted on a single family home in the condominium summer resort Costa Cachagua in Zapallar. The plot had a moderate slope to the south-west with a nice view of the sea and Maitencillo.Save this picture!© Juan Carlos Sabbagh CruzRecommended ProductsDoorsVitrocsaGlass Technology in Hotel BeaulacDoorsLonghiDoor – HeadlineEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreWoodEGGERLaminatesThe main concern was to make the house take advantage of views without generating inhospitable spaces due to the glare of the setting sun. Save this picture!Plan 01 Thus, the house turns the main rooms to the sea but they are protected by large eaves formed by terraces to the south-west and parasols, allowing contemplation in shadow. Save this picture!© Juan Carlos Sabbagh Cruz Another aim was to frame these overlooks with vegetation, in order to add sun protection while generating a green foreground which gives life to the interior, and bring to the second floor the sensation of being at garden level, without being so. Save this picture!© Juan Carlos Sabbagh Cruz For this, we generated a continuous planter around 3 sides exposed to the sun, so deciduous creepers and plants wrap the house and views, adding bioclimatic passive protection against strong sun radiation. Save this picture!© Juan Carlos Sabbagh Cruz In the summer, the creepers will hang from the planters and climb the parasol walls covering them with green leaves, bringing its shade, while in winter the leaves will change to red and then disappear to allow the house to absorb the sun’s heat. Save this picture!© Juan Carlos Sabbagh Cruz To work the slope it was decided to make a single retaining wall, clad in stone, which surrounds the house and confronted against the hill generating the plane of the first level. The house is separated from the wall, generating an edge courtyard which isolates from the moisture of the hill´s soil and allows the sunlight to enter the bedrooms on the first level. The ground floor is set back in order to generate eaves to protect it from rain and sun, which makes the second floor as suspended in an apparent lightness.In the hall´s area this surrounding courtyard extends further, to prioritize and define access. Programmatically was decided to separate the children area from the adult’s rooms in order to reconcile simultaneous uses of a large number of people in a relatively tight area. Save this picture!Plan 02 The bedrooms of kids and guests and the living room were located on the first level, connected directly to the garden, terrace and barbecue. At the second level, in order to appreciate the views even more, were placed all main rooms such as living room, kitchen, master bedroom and guest bedroom. Save this picture!Sections A major concern was that the house also maintains a “beach house” character although their high quality finishes. That is the reason why we kept the concepts of “lookout terrace”, “bench seat with backrest railing” and “external staircase” that connects all the rooms between them by the outside and directly to the garden.

Andy Stapp, Esquire 1969The memorial for Andy Stapp on Nov. 1 turned into a reunion of members and supporters of the American Servicemen’s Union, which he had headed, as well as of his comrades in Workers World Party, long-time acquaintances from near and far, family members and former students who thought him the best and funniest history teacher in the world.As people arrived, they were greeted by a stunning collage of photos and images showing various aspects of Stapp’s life, including the historic August 1968 Esquire magazine cover story, “Exclusive: The plot to unionize the U.S. Army.”The meeting was serious, revolutionary, passionate and rollicking as some two dozen people took the podium to give their memories of this former GI. Stapp, who died this September, had gladdened the hearts of multitudes of soldiers, sailors and marines who refused to fight the Vietnamese people and who applauded his audacious organizing against the Army officer corps.Not lost in the sometimes raucous nostalgia about army life and the stockade was the connection to today’s wars. They are products of the same imperialism that tried, and failed, to subdue the Vietnamese, but has since killed and maimed millions of people in dozens of countries, including U.S. veterans now suffering high rates of suicide and post-traumatic stress disorder.The ASU vets told how the amazing steadfastness of the National Liberation Front of South Vietnam had led to the almost total erosion of discipline in the autocratic U.S. Army, often with hilarious results.Another prominent theme was the ASU’s strong stand against sexism and racism, which laid the basis for militant solidarity among the enlisted soldiers at a time when the government wanted to use its troops against the Black rebellions at home. The GI union supported these freedom struggles and the soldiers who refused to carry out the military’s illegal and unjust orders.Messages were read from former ASU members who couldn’t be there, including Richard Wheaton, one of the founders of the union, and Eddie Oquendo, an African-American draft resister who went to Fort Sill, Okla., to attend Stapp’s second court- martial.The memorial was held, fittingly, at a union headquarters — the large auditorium at 1199 SEIU United Healthcare Workers East, which graciously extended the time for the meeting to four hours to accommodate all those who wished to speak.Plans are underway to post online the story of Andy Stapp, including a film of the memorial, other historic visual material, messages sent to the meeting and eventually e-copies of his book, “Up Against the Brass.” People in the audience contributed to this project. Readers who would like to donate and inspire today’s youth with what is possible in the struggle to end imperialist wars should contact Deirdre Griswold Stapp at [email protected] or write to Deirdre Griswold Stapp, c/o Workers World, 147 West 24th St., 2nd floor, NY, NY 10011.For more information about Andy Stapp’s life and struggles, Google “Workers World Andy Stapp” or go to workers.org.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Planting Forecast: More Moisture Moving Through Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE By Eric Pfeiffer – Apr 26, 2019 Home Indiana Agriculture News Planting Forecast: More Moisture Moving Through Ryan Martin’s Hoosier Ag Today Planting Weather Forecast is brought to you by your Indiana Corn and Soybean checkoff programs and First Farmers Bank & Trust.Sun starts off the day Saturday, but clouds return quickly and bring scattered showers back by late afternoon. They continue through the overnight tomorrow night and will be done by sunrise Sunday. Rain totals there can be from a few hundredths up to half an inch with 70% coverage across the state. The half inch totals will be limited to the northern third of the state, north of US 24. Sunday turns out partly sunny, but cool. In fact, morning lows Sunday morning can be pushing the lower 30s in Northern Indiana.Wet weather is back for a large part of next week. We have rain in the forecast for most of the state on at least 3 of the 5 days of the work week. Monday moisture runs back into the state with .25”-.1” rain totals and 80% coverage. Tuesday has lingering showers mostly central and south, but we won’t rule them out anywhere. Rain totals will be a few hundredths to half an inch, coverage 50% statewide. Showers and thunderstorms are here for both Wednesday and Thursday. Rain totals can be from .1”-.75” Wednesday, half to 1.5” Thursday with coverage each day at 80% statewide.Friday scattered showers linger and can add another .25” of liquid, but the biggest key there is that we are not going to be drying. Next Saturday should turn out mostly sunny, with no change from our previous forecast. Sunday continues to be a key date to watch. Models are flip flopping on the potential for a strong cluster of thunderstorms trying to push up from the SW. If that movement develops, that would bring rains of .25”-1.5” to the state with 75% coverage, and the potential for some strong to severe weather. If not, we could see dry weather for Sunday afternoon, and then also into Monday and Tuesday, the 6th and 7th. So, the thunderstorm cluster is very important to watch for development or dissipation, because that is what looks like the only thing standing in the way of us seeing about a 4-day dry stretch that finishes the 10 day period and moves into the extended window. The map below shows cumulative 10-day rain totals for the period from the 27th through the May 5th. The map shows the worst case scenario of our daily totals listed above from today forward…but still, even if we get the lower end of each range…that’s a lot of water!!Another story for this coming week will be temperatures. We will see normal to below normal temps, and we continue to be concerned about potential for frost in the May 1-10 window. Days to watch right snow are the morning May 4th (32-34 degree morning lows in north central Indiana) and May 5th (33-35 degree morning lows in NE Indiana)Extended Period:The rest of the extended forecast has rain returning for Wednesday the 8th, and then rain chances each day all the way through the 11th. That period could end up triggering some half to 2” rain totals combined over all 4 days. That means we still do not see a good enough period of dry down that gets us super excited about major planting progress here in Indiana.Weeks 3 & 4:Weeks 3 and 4 are still looking cooler than normal over the entire state. We also have seen our hope for a dry window deteriorate quickly. We have 1 system coming through in week three that lasts at least 24-36 hours (14th-15th), and can bring half to 1” or more, and then 2 systems in week 4 (20th-21st, and 24th) that bring rains up to 1.5” combined and full state coverage. The windows for drying will be short and tight. This set up produces near normal precipitation for week three, and near to slightly above normal for week 4.Week 3Precipitation (green: above normal, brown: below)Temperatures (blue: below normal, orange: above)Week 4Precipitation (green: above normal, brown: below)Temperatures (blue: below normal, orange: above)Soil temps as of Friday (4/26)Averaging mid 40s to mid 60s. look for these to drop several degrees following this weekend’s cold push.

Brought before a court in the regional capital, Erbil, the three freelance journalists are victims of a wave of arrests carried out by the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) in response to a series of major protests in recent months against its handling of the economic crisis resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic.Sherwan Sherwani was arrested on 7 October while Guhdar Zebari and Ayaz Karam were arrested on 22 October after social media posts echoing protesters’ demands and complaints, including complaints about delays in paying the salaries of state employees and allegations of government corruption. During a press conference on 10 February, the KRG referred to the situation of journalists and activists who have been jailed in recent months. Without naming anyone, KRG Prime Minister Masrour Barzani said “some individuals were agents for foreign intelligence services” and others “were armed and were plotting to blow up buildings and attack foreign citizens” – crimes punishable by life imprisonment.In the same press conference, Barzani said the KRG “supports journalism and the rights of journalists in all forms” and but warned that the authorities needed to prevent “illicit activities carried out under the banner of journalism.”“We call on the Kurdistan Regional Government to release the reporters and drop the charges against them,” said Sabrina Bennoui, the head of RSF’s Middle East desk. “If the KRG claims to support journalists and respect their rights, it must consent to letting them cover public interest issues, including those journalists who are the most critical of its current policies, and especially at the current moment, which is crucial because of the Covid-19 pandemic.” In November, RSF and the Geneva-based MENA Rights Group (MRG) asked UN human rights experts to do everything possible to obtain Sherwan Sherwani’s release and to investigate his enforced disappearance for the first 19 days after his arrest on 7 October and the torture to which he has reportedly been subjected.Two other journalists are currently detained in Iraqi Kurdistan. Omed Baroshki was arrested on 18 August and Qahraman Shukri was arrested from home on 27 January on grounds that are not yet known, after criticizing online the political repression carried out by the KRG. Qahraman Shukri is the son of Shukri Zaynadin, a journalist who died in still unexplained circumstances in late 2016. His son insists he was the victim of a “political murder.”Iraq is ranked 162nd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index. News Organisation Update (February, 16th 2021): the three independent journalists Sherwan Sherwani, Guhdar Zebari and Ayaz Karam were found guilty of “undermining national security” and sentenced to six years in prison by the Erbil Criminal Court on Tuesday February, 16th. Sherwan Sherwani is notably accused of having worked for Iran. RSF_en Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls for the immediate release of five journalists arrested during the past six months in northern Iraq’s autonomous Kurdish region, three of whom appeared in court for the first time today and were accused of “undermining national security,” a charge carrying a possible life sentence. to go further Receive email alerts Follow the news on Iraq February 15, 2021 – Updated on February 16, 2021 Three jailed reporters charged with “undermining national security” News Iraq : Wave of arrests of journalists covering protests in Iraqi Kurdistan Help by sharing this information December 1, 2020 Find out more December 28, 2020 Find out more Iraq : RSF and MRG ask UN experts to press for Kurdish journalist’s release News IraqMiddle East – North Africa Condemning abusesProtecting journalists News IraqMiddle East – North Africa Condemning abusesProtecting journalists RSF’s 2020 Round-up: 50 journalists killed, two-thirds in countries “at peace” December 16, 2020 Find out more
