first_imgMeacham says, like 2016, the 2017 year will be a year to manage costs as tightly as possible, “A lot of farmers are looking for ways to be more efficient with their nitrogen, and we have some Encirca tools that can help.“ He added the warm and dry conditions this fall have allowed for a good deal of field preparation for next spring.

In 2016, there were essentially two planting seasons: one in April and one in late May.  Bill Meacham, with DuPont Pioneer, says this year really reinforced the importance of planting early, “We saw the yields in the May planted corn were less than the yields in the April planted corn.”center_img For growers in Southern Indiana, 2016 showed the benefits of using a fungicide, “We saw the southern rust disease come in; and, when we finalized the data, those farmers who applied a fungicide really did much better. I think a lot of growers will have this top of mind when they consider a fungicide for next year’s corn.” SHARE DuPont Pioneer Harvest Update 11/21/16 Weed pressure was an issue in 2016; but, in 2017, growers will have some new technology especially in soybeans, “We have some new Roundup Ready 2 Xtend varieties that we will introduce for 2017.”  Meacham added that weed pressure was considerable in many soybean fields this year and that growers are looking for some new technology to help control these resistant weeds, “The new varieties we are introducing are really performing strong, so there is a lot of interest by growers in that technology.” Home News Feed DuPont Pioneer Harvest Update 11/21/16last_img read more

It is clear that Teemah was deliberately targeted.“We urge the authorities to investigate this attack in order to bring those responsible to justice,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The political position of a news organization or a journalist cannot legitimize the use of violence. Media freedom includes the freedom to support a political party.”An unidentified individual or individuals tossed the petrol bomb into the yard of Teemah’s home at around 2:30 a.m. yesterday and then fled.

Reporters Without Borders correspondent Max Watts dies

first_img AustraliaAsia – Pacific to go further AustraliaAsia – Pacific RSF condemns Facebook’s blocking of journalistic content in Australia November 30, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Reporters Without Borders correspondent Max Watts dies Help by sharing this information Max had been sending Reporters Without Borders information about the press freedom situation in his adoptive country for more than 10 years. He also gave us with information about Timor, Palestine and Papua New Guinea. He recently provided us with enthusiastic coverage of an Australian coroner’s inquest into the death of five journalists in Balibo, Timor, at the hands of the Indonesian armed forces in 1975. A German and French-speaker, Max had participated in many political campaigns including the campaign against the Vietnam war. The entire Reporters Without Borders team would like to express its sadness at the loss of this much-loved contributor. Here is a tribute to Max that was published in Australia by one of his friends. November 19, 2020 Find out more News January 21, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Australia By Peter Boyle in Sydney MAX WATTS, a well-known personality on the left in Australia, particularly in Sydney, died on November 23. Max was a left-wing freelance journalist, an occasional contributor to Green Left Weekly and its discussion e-list, and a solidarity activist with many national liberation struggles, including in Palestine, Kanaky, West Papua and Bougainville. In the 1960s, he was a central activist in Europe working with soldier resistance to the Vietnam War within the US armed forces. Resistance inside the army (RITA) was one of his great political passions. Max was an extravagant personality and some people may have found him difficult at times, but he was someone always firmly on the left and on the side of all struggles against oppression and exploitation. You could count on that, and he will be remembered by many comrades in the broad left movement. Max shook his head at the persistent tendency of the left to be over-factionalised and divisive, but he was quick to work alongside those who took up serious struggle. An eagerness to understand and show solidarity with new forces in motion in any country was one of his characteristics. Max passed away in Sydney’s Royal Prince Alfred Hospital from kidney and heart failure. He was with close friends Rosie, Lydia, Vivienne and Barbara at the time and passed peacefully. I managed to say goodbye to him in hospital a few days before he died. He was quite feisty then — though somewhat confused and disoriented, probably due to medication. After about an hour, my attempts to get him to stay in his bed earned me the following last words: “Boyle, your visiting time is up!” It was classic Max. Max will be formally farewelled in Sydney on December 1 at 11.30am at Camellia Chapel, Macquarie Park Crematorium, Plassey Road, North Ryde. Phone (+614) 11 366 295 for more details.

Subhash Reddy and MR Shah set aside the Orissa High Court judgment in which it observed that the candidate cannot be denied the appointment solely on the ground that he is possessing a higher qualification.  The court also added that suppression of material information and making a false statement has a clear bearing on the character and antecedents of the employee in relation to his continuance in service.In the job advertisement, the bank had mentioned that a candidate to the post of peon should not be a graduate, but should have passed 12th class or its equivalent with basic reading/writing knowledge of English. A candidate suppressed the fact that he is a graduate and got appointment as the peon. His candidature was cancelled as the bank found that he was a graduate and he was not allowed to join the bank in subordinate cadre. Aggrieved with this, he approached the High Court by filing a writ petition. The High Court directed the bank to allow him to work there as peon on the ground that a candidate cannot be denied the appointment solely on the ground that he is possessing a higher qualification.  In appeal filed by the bank, the Apex Court bench observed that prescribing the eligibility criteria/educational qualification that a graduate shall not be eligible to apply was a conscious decision taken by the Bank. The court observed:”It is for the employer to determine and decide the relevancy and suitability of the qualifications for any post and it is not for the Courts to consider and assess. A greater latitude is permitted by the Courts for the employer to prescribe qualifications for any post. There is a rationale behind it. Qualifications are prescribed keeping in view the need and interest of an Institution or an Industry or an establishment as the case may be. The Courts are not fit instruments to assess expediency or advisability or utility of such prescription of qualifications. However, at the same time, the employer cannot act arbitrarily or fancifully in prescribing qualifications for posts.”The court noted, as per the eligibility criteria/educational qualification prescribed, the candidate not eligible as per the eligibility criteria/educational qualification mentioned in the advertisement. The bench also added that an employee is expected to give a correct information as to his qualification. While setting aside the High Court judgment, the bench said:”Suppression of material information and making a false statement has a clear bearing on the character and antecedents of the employee in relation to his continuance in service. A candidate having suppressed the material information and/or giving false information cannot claim right to continuance in service.”Case: Chief Manager, Punjab National Bank vs. Anit Kumar Das [CIVIL APPEAL NO.3602 OF 2020]Coram: Justices Ashok Bhushan, R.
