That took the average house price down to 153,600 pounds.Hometrack said the sluggish start to 2011 was likely to continue, given the uncertainty over the economic recovery and worries about the effect of government cuts.“Prices are set, in the short term, to remain under downward pressure,” Richard Donnell, director of research at Hometrack, said in a statement. “Household budgets being squeezed by increased taxation will be stretched further if concerns over rising inflation translate into higher interest rates.”Over the last six months, Hometrack’s survey has recorded a 26 percent fall in demand, with a drop of 9.5 percent in January alone, suggesting the housing market faces more fundamental problems than the usual post-Christmas slowdown.There was a 9.5 per cent fall in the number of new buyers registering with agents in January, compared to a 4.8 percent fall in December and a drop of 2.7 per cent in January 2010, the survey said.“Concerns over the economic outlook and the biting reality of spending cuts are doing little to improve a fragile market defined by weak consumer sentiment and a lack of demand for housing,” said Donnell.A jump in inflation last month raises the prospect that interest rates may rise earlier than expected this year, but news this week that the economy unexpectedly contracted in the final quarter of 2010 has made the rate outlook difficult to predict. Government spending cuts due to start this year will also weigh on sentiment in the housing market.Partly offsetting the lower housing demand this month was a drop in the number of homes coming onto the market. Supply slipped by 5.4 per cent, its biggest monthly fall for four years.Separate data on Wednesday from the British Bankers’ Association showed mortgage approvals fell to their lowest level in nearly two years in December.

However, the Mature and Baby Boomer generations are the generations with the highest proportion of people giving – at 68% of people in both age groups. They also contribute to the second highest number of charities, at over five charities per person. Matures contribute 22% of the total donated but 73% do not anticipate any change in the amount they give to charity in the next year. In terms of preferred causes, the report found that all generations share a top three: health, children and animals. Matures are the only group to place animal causes slightly higher than children with older generations also more likely to prioritise giving to elderly causes. The survey also asked participants how they thought they could have the greatest impact. It shows that the older generations are more likely to prioritise giving money with 49-51% of people in these age groups favouring this, while more Generation Zers and Millennials were the age groups that most favoured peer-to-peer fundraising (17%). Similar numbers of Gen Zers/Millennials, Gen Xers and Matures chose volunteering as their contribution of choice (13-15%).How people prefer to make a differenceAcceptable ways for charities to ask for support were also examined in the survey, including direct mail, email, SMS, phone calls, cinema adverts, and TV/ radio programmes. Generation Zers and Millennials. Overall, the youngest generations are the most open to appeals via email (62%), SMS/text (56%), or social media (60%). However, 62% are also open to direct mail, while they are also particularly open to being asked to give via radio/TV programmes (73%) and cinema advertisements (70%).The report also looks at online engagement and giving, finding that mosst Baby Boomers and Matures report minimal online contact with charities, while younger generations are also the most willing to give via a mobile device at 86% of Gen Zers and Millennials, compared to 33% of Boomers and 18% of Matures.  Percentage of each generation willing to give via mobile deviceThe report was commissioned by the Blackbaud Institute for Philanthropic Impact with Edge Research conducting an online survey of 985 UK donors in February this year.

The Icons of Agriculture

By

first_imgFor most outside of agriculture, the icons of farming would be the hip roof barn, a silo, an open top tractor, a weather vane, or a windmill. While these symbolize farming to consumers, they are icons of the past and do not represent farms today.  This is part of the reason people don’t understand agriculture, because they still have that image of the farms of yesterday.  Metal buildings, GPS satellite receivers, and self-propelled sprayers, while more representative of today’s agriculture, have not  captured the imagination of the public. The icons of the past still have a powerful hold on consumers and farmers alike. The Pioneer Village at the Indiana State Fair, which showcases  the icons of the past, still draws over 300,000 people each year during the 17 days of the Fair.  Farmers and city folks flock to see the display of antique tractors as well as the steam powered sawmill and wheat threshing demonstrations. There is something about the old iron that still holds people’s attention. While the heritage of agriculture is important and needs to be remembered and venerated, we also need to update the icons that represent our industry. Farming today is science-based and technologically sophisticated. The men and woman who work in it are well-educated and are experts with highly specialized skills.  Updating the images that represent agriculture will  help give consumers a more realistic idea of what farming is really all about today.By Gary Truitt SHARE The Icons of Agriculture Turn on a computer, pick up a smartphone, or  try to get money from an ATM, and you will be faced with icons, graphic images that represent things that used to have words. In our multi-lingual and increasingly semi-literate society, icons are being used more and more in place of words. The challenge is that sometimes your interpretation of the icon may be different from what the icon really represents.  This kind of miscommunication can lead to frustration, delays, or screwing up your bank account.  The misinterpretation of icons may also contribute to the misunderstanding of agriculture by those not involved in it. But standing next to the Pioneer Village is an icon of the new agriculture, the Glass Barn, a very modern structure that features a video link with farmers on their farms. Here Fair visitors can ask questions and talk with producers to get a more realistic view of what farming is like today.  The building is full of high tech tools and imagery that stresses the modern and sophisticated nature of farming today.  By Gary Truitt – Aug 3, 2014 SHARE Home Commentary The Icons of Agriculture Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Another structure on the other side of the fairgrounds is the Coliseum. Constructed in 1939, this building has been home for many historical Indiana events, but, for the most part, it has been the center of livestock expositions in the state for the past 75 years.  When it was announced that the building would be gutted as part of a $63 million dollar renovation, there was concern in the ag community that an icon of agriculture would be lost.  To their credit, State Fair officials designed a new interior that showcases the past, but emphasizes the future of agriculture. The livestock wall and 16 inches of dirt that make up the Coliseum show arena, combined with high tech video screens, laser lights, and state-of-the-art sound system, give livestock shows a new upbeat and modern look and feel.  Previous articleDirt is Back in State Fair ColiseumNext articleSurvey Suggests Consumers Get Animal Welfare info from HSUS, PETA Gary Truittlast_img read more

He was accused of playing a role in the journalist’s murder by other suspects, and was one of four people sought by the police. According to the daily O Globo, the following day a judge placed in preventive detention five other suspects arrested in relation to the case. They are : Elizeu Felício de Souza, also known as “o Zeu”; Angelo Ferreira da Silva (“o Primo”); Reinaldo Amaral de Jesús (“Kadê” or “Cabê”); Fernando Sátyro da Silva (“o Frei”) and Claudino dos Santos Coelho (“Xuxa”). The decision was made at the request of the two investigating judges in charge of the case, Vivian Tavares Henriques and Patrícia Mothé Glioche, to ensure that the men are not freed. The five men are being prosecuted for ‘theft’, ‘drug smuggling’, ‘homicide’ and “hiding of a corpse”. Three other suspects are still being pursued._____________________________08.07.2002 – Murder of Tim Lopes confirmed by DNA test The remains of journalist Tim Lopes (photo) were buried on 7 July at the Jardim da Saudade cemetery, in western Rio of Janeiro, two days after police confirmed after DNA tests by a Rio Federal University laboratory that bones found in a secret burial ground in the Grota slum area of the city were his.Rio civil police chief Zaqueo Teixeira said part of the journalist’s spine had been identified out of the 41 bone fragments handed to the laboratory by comparing its DNA with that of his mother and son. He said the search for those who murdered him, especially Elias Pereira da Silva, who is thought to have ordered his killing, would be stepped up. The secret burial ground, found by police after weeks of searching, in the Vila Cruzeiro district, where Lopes was investigating drug trafficking and child prostitution with a hidden camera, contained the bones of other suspected victims of drug-lords. The journalist’s personal belongings – his mini-camera, watch and a gold chain – were found in the same place and identified by his family and the TV station he worked for.Local press reports said eight people had been involved in killing Lopes. Four of them have been arrested , including Angelo Ferreira da Silva and Elizeu Felício de Souza, who described how Lópes had been “tried” by Pereira da Silva before being tortured, executed and his body burned. The other four involved – Pereira da Silva himself, André da Cruz Barbosa, Maurício de Lima Bastos and Renato Souza Lopes – are still being sought. Alarm after two journalists murdered in Brazil ——————————————————————————————————————2002.06.04 – Journalist investigating drug dealers’ practices missingReporters Without Borders has expressed its concern following the disappearance of Tim Lopes, a TV Globo reporter, who was carrying out investigations in one of the “favela” on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro. Police have found human remains, which could be those of the journalist, and these are currently being analysed. “All possible light must be shed on the circumstances surrounding this disappearance,” states Robert Ménard, Secretary-General of Reporters Without Borders. The organisation has written to Sérgio Falante, the police officer in charge of the affair at the Vila de Penha police station, asking to be kept informed of the results of the inquiry.According to Reporters Without Borders’ information, Tim Lopes, who works for TV Globo, disappeared during the night of 2/3 June while gathering information for a report on the practices of drug dealers in Vila del Cruzeiro, a “favela” in Vila de Penha (to the north of Rio de Janeiro). According to the Brazilian news agency Estado, police found charred human remains in a cellar in Vila del Cruzeiro. The remains, which could be those of the journalist, were immediately sent for DNA testing. The results should be known in a week. Tim Lopes went to Vila do Cruzeiro to investigate a complaint made by people living in Vila de Penha received by TV Globo. It was claimed that drug dealers were organising parties at which they recruited new clients and sexually abused minors. Vila de Cruzeiro is one of the “favela” in the Complexe do Alemao, a shantytown on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro controlled by the drug dealers.In August 2001, Tim Lopes had made a series of three reports for television, entitled “The drugs fair”, for which he was awarded the Esso Especial Prize for Television Journalism. Filmed with a hidden camera, the reports showed young people offering drugs to passers-by in full daylight in one of the “favela” in the Complexe do Alemao. The military police stepped up its presence in the area after the reports were broadcast on TV Globo.

Later, the victim too approached the High Court supporting the prosecution plea for transfer. The victim alleged that the judge allowed her to be harassed and humiliated during the cross-examination by defence lawyers. According to the victim, the judge was hostile and was not sensitive to her trauma as a survivor of a horrific sexual crime.On November 20, a single bench of the Kerala High Court had dismissed the petitions filed by the prosecution and the victim.”When the question is one of transfer of a criminal case on the ground of judicial bias, mere allegation of apprehension of bias is not enough, the court has to see whether such apprehension is reasonable or not”, a bench of Justice V G Arun of the High Court had observed.At first, the prosecution had filed an application before the trial court seeking to stop the proceedings to move the High Court for transferring the case. This application was dismissed by the Court of Additional Sessions Judge (Special/CBI)-III, Ernakulam and the was trial directed to be resumed from November 3.The trial was specially assigned to this court by the High Court at the request of the victim for a woman judge to try the case.The transfer plea stated that the trial court has not taken a decision on the application moved by the prosecution seeking to cancel the bail of Dileep on the ground of intimidating the victim and other witnesses in the case.Prominent Malayalam film actor Dileep is accused of hatching the criminal conspiracy behind the abduction and the sexual assault of the victim, also an actor, in a moving vehicle in the outskirts of Cochin city in February 2017.The prosecution has so far examined 80 witnesses in the case, including certain prominent actors of the Malayalam film industry. Some of them have reportedly turned hostile. The victim of the crime has also given her statement.The Special Prosecutor had taken exception to certain statements and remarks said to have been made by the judge during the course of witness examination.”The prosecution honestly believes that the prosecution as well as the victim will not get fair trial and justice from this court”, the application filed by Prosecution to defer the proceedings had said.”The prosecution intends to approach the honourable High Court for transfer of the trial of this case from this Honourable Court to any other court. Therefore, it is humbly submitted that the prosecution is not in a position to conduct the trial of the above case before this court on the above grounds and also on several other grounds which are not to be mentioned here to protect the interests of justice”, the plea had stated.Dismissing the proseuction’s application to stop the trial last month, Special Judge Honey M Varghese instructed the investigating officer to take steps to resume the trial from November 3 to complete the proceedings within the time frame set by the Supreme Court.”In the light of direction of Hon’ble Supreme Court to dispose of the case on or before 04.02.20201, investigating officer is directed to take urgent steps to resume the trial on 03.11.2020″, the Court ordered.In November 2019, while rejecting Dileep’s plea for a copy of the memory card allegedly containing the visuals of the sexual crime, the Supreme Court had ordered that the trial in the case should be completed expeditiously, “preferably within six months”.The Kerala Police had arrested Dileep in July 2017 alleging that he was the mastermind of the crime. After 88 days of custody, the High Court granted him bail.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
