The survey, which asks manufacturers how their prices will change in the coming three months, has been a strong guide to future inflation trends, Saunders argued. “The message from this survey, and other lead guides, is that the UK faces an extended inflation overshoot,” he warned.The expected upturn in factory prices is “due to manufacturers looking to protect their margins as their input costs rise strongly,” said Howard Archer of IHS Global Insight.However, the survey provides reassurance that manufacturing, the UK’s “star performer,” remains “in good shape,” Archer added.Factories’ total order books bounced back from a disappointing score last month. While eight per cent more respondents say order books are below normal than above normal, this is a significant improvement on January’s score of -16 per cent, and above the long term average of -18 per cent.The recovery prompted optimism among manufacturers, with a balance of 23 per cent predicting an increase in output over the next three months – the strongest anticipated growth since June 2007.“With expectations for output growth at their strongest since before the recession, the recovery in the manufacturing sector remains well on track,” said Ian McCafferty, chief economist at the CBI. “The sector should continue to make an important contribution to broader economic growth,” McCafferty said.“Exports are benefiting from the low pound and strengthening global growth,” Saunders added. whatsappcenter_img Inflation risk dents 15-year factory high Share Show Comments ▼ by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodayTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen Heraldautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comlast_img read more

Mapping the Digital Divide in Rural America

However, not all areas do. Finding out who is on-line and who is not is the goal of a new mapping project being proposed by WashingtonEveryone in agriculture agrees rural America needs better broadband access. “It touches agriculture in a big way because we use so many technologies that are available to us — being able to collect the data, and being able to move forward and being more productive. We’re able to not just be productive, but we can better protect our environment,” says American Farm Bureau President Zippy Duvall.Finding out who has what level of service is not an easy task. A bill in Congress would establish a mapping program to generate a picture of what areas have access and which do not. Duvall says this will help direct resources to the right areas. “It’s important to do that because they use that data to be able to take the money back to the areas that need to boost broadband,” he stated. “We need a really good picture of what the availability is so that they know how to send those monies.”While farmers and rural areas need broadband access now, the process of making that happen continues to be frustratingly show.

Pandemic Likely to Increase Farm Bankruptcies

first_imgFollowing years of depressed prices and trade concerns, the number of farm bankruptcies is rising. Farm bankruptcies were rising before the coronavirus pandemic, and more challenges are ahead. American Farm Bureau Federation Economist John Newton says the trend is concerning. “What we’ve seen is over the last 12 months ending March 2020 is Chapter 12 bankruptcies in the United States totaled 627 filings, that was up 23 percent. While it’s well below the levels we saw in the 80’s, it’s still the third-highest that we’ve seen in the last 20 years, so it’s a concerning trend.”Newton says those bankruptcies occurred prior to the coronavirus pandemic, which has resulted in steep declines in commodity prices.“We did see the administration roll out the Coronavirus Food Assistance Package with $16 billion in support to agriculture. But that’s just an initial down payment. Farmers are going to face struggles with high unemployment, loss of off-farm income, and with farm debt at a record $425 billion, that could increase farm loan delinquencies.”Newton says farmers will need additional relief.“Farmers have an opportunity to go in and enroll for the CFAP funding after Memorial Day, that’s going to provide an immediate financial boost to some farmers across the country. We know that the Secretary has $14 billion in additional funding available later this summer. And, then I think as Senators start to work on the next assistance package, thinking about the needs of agriculture, to help us bridge the gap and avoid more farm bankruptcies in the future.” Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Pandemic Likely to Increase Farm Bankruptcies Facebook Twitter SHAREcenter_img By American Farm Bureau Federation – May 19, 2020 Pandemic Likely to Increase Farm Bankruptcies SHARE Previous articleUSDA Announces Details of Direct Assistance to Farmers through the Coronavirus Food Assistance ProgramNext articleReynolds Farm Equipment Names Equipment Sales Veteran Chief Executive Officer American Farm Bureau Federationlast_img read more

Harassment of pro-government journalists growing in Syria

first_imgNews SyriaMiddle East – North Africa Condemning abusesReports and statisticsProtecting journalists DisappearancesImprisoned Other journalists have also expressed their frustration on Facebook although, as in the preceding cases, they quickly removed their posts for fear of reprisals. The well-known former host of a state TV channel programme about corruption (who also prefers not to be  identified although he now lives in self-imposed exile) said he left Syria because it was no longer possible to cover corruption properly. SyriaMiddle East – North Africa Condemning abusesReports and statisticsProtecting journalists DisappearancesImprisoned No one knows for sure where Al-Tair is or why he is being held. Some sources say he made the mistake of posting a poll about the fuel crisis in Syria. The Syrian writer and researcher Hossam Jazmati has offered another explanation on his Facebook page. He claims to know from “reliable sources” that Al-Tair was selling photos to foreign media, which constitutes an act of treason because only media that have the government’s approval are allowed to do this. News In reality, control of online publications has been stepped up since the government’s adoption of a law in March 2018 creating a special court for “information and communication crimes.” These journalists include Rida Albasha, a reporter for Al-Mayadeen, a Lebanese TV channel whose coverage usually favours the Syrian and Iranian governments. Albasha was one of Syria’s most ubiquitous war reporters and was very influential on social networks. He accompanied the government forces in many of their battles until he started to talk openly about corruption in Assad controlled areas, above all in Aleppo, in videos broadcast live on Facebooks. He was expelled from Syria in April. Syria is ranked 174th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index. Illusion of freedom The only thing that we know for sure is that he has joined an already long list. RSF has learned that, in the past 12 months, at least 13 reputedly pro-government Syrian journalists have been charged or threatened by the intelligence services in connection with what they reported. The most common charges are “undermining the nation’s morale” and “harming the prestige of the state.” Tougher legislation News In theory, the Syrian constitution (adopted in 2012 after the first protests) guarantees press freedom and the “right of access to information about public affairs,” and prohibits “arrests, interrogations and investigations of journalists.” The government often reiterates this and claims that the media enjoy a great deal of freedom. Information minister Imad Sara recently even claimed in a communiqué that “red lines” would no longer be imposed on the media. The price of fuel is another subject that is off limits for the press in Syria. Mohamad Harsho, the editor of the Hashtag Syria website, was arrested on 10 April after posting an article about a government plan to increase the price of gasoline. He was released after intelligence officials got the site to remove the story and issue a formal apology instead. His punishment was less severe than that of Raeif Salameh, a journalist with the Baath Party’s media unit, who was jailed from April to May for allegedly running a Facebook page critical of the health ministry. And Hashtag Syria correspondent Amer Drau was held for four months in 2018, from August to November, after being arrested for “publishing false news.” A pro-government stance does not suffice to protect media personnel from arrest. Several Syrian media outlets have reported that Rabea Kalawandy, a journalist who works for the Iranian pro-government TV channel Al-Alam, was arrested in Aleppo on 8 July. His family have no idea why he is being held. He did not publish anything on his official Facebook page the following day and started sharing contents again the day after with no explanation. July 15, 2019 – Updated on July 16, 2019 Harassment of pro-government journalists growing in Syria Al-Tair’s family, who live in Jableh (25 km south of the port city of Latakia), talked about his arrest in a video posted on Facebook shortly afterwards. His brother says in the video that the intelligence services arrested Al-Tair when he began taking an interest in corruption. In tears, his mother describes going to Damascus and spending ten days there seeking information about his fate, without success. According to unconfirmed reports, he died under torture. RSF_en Wave of Kurdish arrests of Syrian journalists Follow the news on Syria Receive email alerts Until now, these journalists were privileged. The intelligence had chosen them and had allowed them to access combat zones and population resettlements so that they could play a key role in providing media coverage from the official viewpoint. This gave them a large audience. The director of NGO Syria Justice and Accountability Centre director Mohammad Al-Abdullah told the independent media outlet Enab Baladi that they sometimes used their fame and their familiarity with key figures to raise matters linked to such issues as poor living standards and corruption, but the reaction from the authorities and the security services served to remind them that the limits on criticism had not changed. “The power of fear in journalists” Shortly after being expelled, Albasha posted this question on Facebook: “Why did you promulgate a media law if you apply to journalists the laws that are used to prosecute murderers, drug traffickers and thieves?” His post was later removed but it was for the same reason that a newspaper editor who does not want to be named reached a joint decision with the newspaper’s owner to stop publishing. In an editorial that was online briefly in mid-May before being taken down, he referred to “the power of fear in journalists” during what is one of the toughest periods in the Syrian media’s history.

Yet through it all remained on the job—steadfast and resolute in their duty–most working every day from their headquarters or field offices, not remotely or from home, and all dedicated to making our government of, by, and for the people function, for all the right reasons,” he noted.The Health and Human Services Department, for example, worked overtime to push out $178 billion in CARES Act Provider Relief Funds to hospitals and other health care providers on the front lines of the COVID-19 effort, he pointed out.The Small Business Administration and Treasury staffers worked to deploy the Paycheck Protection Program and are working overtime to deploy round two.HUD, he notes, worked countless days to help the more than 1 million Federal Housing Administration households who requested mortgage forbearance or needed a foreclosure moratorium to remain in their homes. More HUD personnel helped to ensure property owners and HUD-subsidized households had needed funding and information … still others helped deliver $9 billion in grants to suffering cities, states, and tribal nations.”Examples of their professionalism and hard work abound and resist any partisan label,” Montgomery noted.He goes on to address incoming political appointees at various domestic-policy agencies.”You will soon have time to dig in, work with dedicated career professionals, and begin to address many of the same issues we have been facing for months. You will have an opportunity to examine first-hand why the previous team did what they did,” he wrote. “I am hopeful that when you do, you will understand the magnitude of the effort put forth, of the workload that grew exponentially during the pandemic, and of the tools employed to do our duty effectively and efficiently.”He calls on members of both the outgoing and incoming administrations to “recognize and appreciate what it means to serve the public, regardless of party affiliation.””While our policy differences remain,” he concluded, “I wish our new team of public servants the best and hope we can tip our hats to those who are on the way out.” The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Subscribelast_img read more
