Ryan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for November 8, 2016

first_img SHARE Ryan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for November 8, 2016 Home News Feed Ryan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for November 8, 2016 Facebook Twitter Previous articleTrash Talking Trade, Will It Continue After Election Day?Next articleMorning Outlook Hoosier Ag Today By Hoosier Ag Today – Nov 8, 2016 Facebook Twitter A weak batch of moisture moves in over the state today, coming up around the backside of high pressure that moves off the east coast. This will bring plentiful clouds, and also a chance of some minor precipitation. Moisture will be limited to a few hundredths to about 2 tenths maximum, with coverage at about 50% of the state. WE really would like to keep the state dry in our forecast, but that just is not going to be able to come together. Still, most of the moisture will be limited to this afternoon and evening, and will be gone by tonight.Dry weather is back tomorrow and will hold through the weekend and early next week. Another strong high pressure dome will move in, bringing cooler air to start and then warmer air up the backside. Overall, even with the cooler air tomorrow, temps will still be above normal right on through this 7 day period. Dry down will be excellent with full sun and nice breezes. Temps may make a run at freezing underneath the core of high pressure overnight Friday night into Saturday…that will be where the coldest, sinking air will be under the high.Our next system to watch arrives next Tuesday, initially with a minor warm front. That front brings a few hundredths to a quarter of an inch with 50% coverage for Tuesday. But, as the low moves through Wednesday, we see better rain totals move in and much better coverage, with rains of .25”-.5” Tuesday night through Wednesday and coverage at 80%. This system will usher in strong north winds and much colder air behind the system for the start of the 11-16 day forecast window.Those strong north winds will take temps to below normal levels next starting next Thursday and will keep a cool pattern in place into next weekend. Some models are trying to suggest a bounce in temps to normal and above normal levels as we move closer to thanksgiving. However, we are not in that camp. We look for temps staying normal to below normal through the last 10 days of November. SHARElast_img read more

Cyber-journalists forced to give false evidence at colleague’s trial

first_img News December 15, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Cyber-journalists forced to give false evidence at colleague’s trial to go further Organisation RSF_en News Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders today condemned the pressure being put on three newly released cyber-journalists and a fourth still in prison to give false evidence at the trial of the president of the Association of Iranian Journalists, Ali Mazroi. Help by sharing this information Call for Iranian New Year pardons for Iran’s 21 imprisoned journalists Reporters Without Borders today condemned the pressure being put on three newly released cyber-journalists and a fourth still in prison to give false evidence at the trial of the president of the Association of Iranian Journalists, Ali Mazroi. All four said they were treated well in prison at a press conference held yesterday when charges were brought against Mazroi in a Tehran court.”The Iranian authorities hope to be able to dispel the criticism abroad by staging pathetic and grotesque performances,” the organisation said. “But these testimonies are utterly pointless as there is abundant evidence of the mental and physical harassment of journalists.”The four journalists brought to court yesterday as prosecution witnesses in the case against Mazroi were Omid Memarian, Shahram Rafihzadeh, Rozbeh Mir Ebrahimi and Javad Gholam Tamayomi (who is still in prison). Mazroi is being prosecuted for writing to President Mohammad Khatami about the mistreatment of his son, Hanif Mazroi, another cyber-journalist who was recently released from prison.At yesterday’s press conference, all five said they had not been mistreated while in detention. Tamayomi even said he was currently being held in a cell that was “30 square metres in area, with a colour television.”In reality, the seven recently detained cyber-journalists were regularly beaten in prison. Rafihzadeh was beaten on the soles of his feet with electric wire, a common form of torture in Iranian jails.Although six of the seven have been freed on bail, they continue to be harassed by the authorities. Memarian, Rafihzadeh and Ebrahim spent eight hours in the offices of Tehran prosecutor Said Mortazavi the day before yesterday. They have been summoned for questioning and have received phone calls from the security services several times since their release. They have also been told not to accept the services of a lawyer.Letters of “repentance” by these journalists that were dictated by the authorities were published in the Iranian press on 4 December. Memarian said in his letter: “I was brain-washed by radical elements” and by “my relations with counter-revolutionaries.” June 9, 2021 Find out more February 25, 2021 Find out more IranMiddle East – North Africa Follow the news on Iran IranMiddle East – North Africa News March 18, 2021 Find out more After Hengameh Shahidi’s pardon, RSF asks Supreme Leader to free all imprisoned journalists Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 Newslast_img read more

Limerick Garda station will fly the rainbow flag

first_imgPrint by Andrew [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up HENRY Street Garda station will be a bit more colourful this weekend when the Limerick divisional headquarters becomes one of the first Garda station’s in the country to fly the Rainbow flag in support of this year’s Gay Pride festival.Chief Superintendent Dave Sheahan said that the decision to fly the flag was a “significant show of support” for the LGBT community.“It creates an extremely positive image for An Garda Síochána locally in supporting a minority group”, he added.The Pride Parade will route through O’Connell Street and Mallow Street before it passes by the Garda station.Chief Superintendent Sheahan said the flag will show Garda recognition and support for LGBT people as they pass by the station.“In particular we are sending a message to report any homophobic, violent, threatening or abusive behaviour towards any member of the LGBT community. Homophobic acts cannot be addressed if we are not made aware of them and in flying the rainbow flag, we want to encourage any LGBT person to report an incident at either their nearest Garda station, to their local LGBT liaison officer or to contact the National LGBT Liaison Officer in Garda Racial Intercultural Diversity Office, Harcourt Square, Dublin”.A report launched at the University of Limerick this June concluded that transgender people face elevated levels of violence and discrimination in Ireland. The report also documented 32 hate incidents of which 15 were designated as hate crimes.88 per cent of respondents experienced verbal abuse or insults; 28 per cent experienced threats of violence; one in five experienced physical violence and six per cent experienced sexual harassment.“There are no definite figures on such crimes as people can be reluctant to report for a variety of reasons, but one of the reasons for not reporting them should not be that Gardaí will not deal with complaints professionally and as soon as possible”, Chief Supt Sheahan added.

We’re just ordinary folks who enjoy what we do and being a part of something that brings a lot of pleasure to people and positive recognition to our community.”The two-act play features pre-show music by the Benton Brothers and Company and a full country supper served family style. The play is performed in the We Piddle Around Theater, which was originally Brundidge City Hall. The building was constructed by WPA workers in 1940 and that is where the theater got its name.“Workers with the Works Progress Administration were often accused of not doing much work, just piddling around,” Bowden said. “So, the WPA was dubbed ‘We Piddle Around’ and that seemed to be a fitting name for our theater. We just hope those who come leave thinking all of the piddling has been worthwhile.”This season of “Come Home” is directed by Wes Tomlin of Ozark. Tomlin is a veteran actor and director.center_img Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Print Article Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Sponsored Content Skip You Might Like Mitchells find fishy solution for tomato plants The story of the Mitchells’ giant tomato plant began with the simple purchase of what was thought to be just… read more Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Troy falls to No. 13 Clemsonlast_img read more

Greggs reaches 500,000 Facebook ‘likes’

first_imgGreggs has reached a social media milestone by accumulating more than half a million ’likes’ on its Facebook page.The high street bakery business, which topped British Baker’s BB75 list, based on its store count, has celebrated the landmark moment with the launch of a competition to give away a free Greggs lunch every week of the year to five of its Facebook fans.Greggs will also be creating a Fan Van, which will put the faces of its Facebook followers on to one of its vehicles.Speaking of Greggs’ presence on Facebook, Chris Lee, social media consultant and trainer at Planet Content, told British Baker: “It makes sense for Greggs to be active on Facebook. To not be would be a conspicuous absence given its target demographic is there. If you’re looking purely at fan numbers, there are others out there with more fans – for example Starbucks UK. But Greggs’ engagement is good – it has lots of likes and comments, plus the brand responds to wall questions.“Fans want to feel included and not ignored, so Greggs is doing a good job of fostering a response from fans and showing an interest in its fans in return.”Lee added that in the retail sector, it has been proven that Facebook fans, and friends of fans, are more likely to visit a brand’s website that they like, and are 10% more likely to make a purchase as a result.“Success on social media depends on what the objective is for the brand. Ken McMeikan, Greggs’ chief executive, takes a personal interest in social media, so a key strategy for the company appears to be as a way to listen to customers and improve the customer experience as a result. Whatever channel that happens on doesn’t really matter, just so long as the brand is engaged and follows best practice.“The conversation about brands is happening whether the brands like it or not, so Greggs has positioned itself well by getting involved and actively responding to the feedback of its community. It would be great to learn how this feedback is translating into sales.”The number of ’likes’ on Greggs’ Facebook currently stands at 503,576, while it has accumulated almost 13,607 Twitter followers.Facebook revealed that there could be around 83 million fake accounts on the social media site, around 8.7% of its total users, as the firm’s share price dropped to below $20, from $38, last Thursday.last_img read more
