AFBF Director of Grassroots Program Development Randy Dwyer says lawmakers are out in their respective districts this week looking to hear from farmers and ranchers.“This week is farm bill action week and we are asking farmers and ranchers across the country to take a minute and to contact their legislators about the farm bill. It’s a great opportunity to spend a little bit of time reaching out and letting your legislators know that the farm bill is extremely important.”The House Agriculture Committee sent its version of the farm bill to the full House for consideration in late April. The House could consider the bill within the next three weeks. Dwyer says farmers and ranchers need to let Congress know the importance of keeping the bill moving forward.“Farm Bureau members across the country need to let their legislators know that they need to support the farm bill. It is extremely important for rural America that this farm bill gets enacted. The opportunity is now to reach out because there is a vote coming up in a couple of weeks in the House of Representatives.”Dwyer is encouraging farmers and ranchers to call, email or even use social media, to make their voice heard by legislators.“There are several ways that our Farm Bureau members can reach out to their legislators this week. One of them is going online, and that’s going to fb.org/advocacy. There, they can send an email to their legislators. It’s quick, it’s simple, and it makes a big impact back in the congressional office.” SHARE AFBF: Contact Lawmakers Now to Support Farm Bill By Hoosier Ag Today – May 3, 2018

The radio stations are opposing the proposed construction of a huge wind farm in the Isthmus of Tehuantepec by Mareña Renovables and Gas Natural Fenosa and are criticizing the failure to consult the local indigenous communities.The conflict has intensified in the past few days. Radio Totopo journalist Carlos Sánchez Martínez was arrested and physically attacked yesterday by members of the Oaxaca state police and is still in detention. His case is emblematic of the way this station, which has spearheaded indigenous opposition to the wind farm, has been hounded for months. Just days ago, representatives of the Oaxaca state government attacked the station and confiscated equipment.The persecution of Radio Totopo is not isolated. Other news outlets that have been covering the conflict have also been hounded for months. Radio Xadani journalist Filiberto Vincente Aquino received death threats on 20 March after attending a news conference on opposition to the wind farm.The next day, several journalists – including Ignacio Garrido and Karina Martínez of Radio Voces de los Pueblos, Rosa Rojas of the daily La Jornada, photographer Francisco Olvera, David Henestrosa and Eliseo Ramirez – were arrested by the municipal police in San Mateo del Mar and were held for several hours.Transmitting equipment was stolen a few days ago from Radio Huave, which has been criticizing the wind farm’s potential impact for years.Reporters Without Borders urges the Oaxaca government and international companies to end their campaign of criminalizing the community radio stations and to respect their work. The role they play in defending local community rights is beyond dispute, and they are just covering an ongoing local conflict.Reporters Without Borders also calls on the authorities to comply with their obligation to respect the rights of indigenous peoples as established in International Labour Organization Convention No. 169, which Mexico ratified in 1990, and in Article 2 of the Federal Constitution.The safety of journalists in Mexico, which Reporters Without Borders visited in March, continues to be very worrying, especially in the north and east of the countries where online media and blogs, in particular, are being targeted.Reporters Without Borders is astonished that the Mexican Association of Newspaper Publishers chose to award the governor of Veracruz state a prize for his “efforts to guarantee full use of freedom of expression” on 2 April. Five journalists were killed in Veracruz in 2012, many journalists have fled the state and those responsible for crimes of violence against journalists enjoy complete impunity.

NASA/JPL-CaltechEngineers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena are trying to fix a problem with the Mars Curiosity rover’s drill mechanism, as the vehicle remains stationary on the red planet.The rover team at JPL learned on December 1 that Curiosity did not complete the commands for drilling. The rover detected a fault in the “drill feed” mechanism that prevented the drill from touching the rock target.“We are in the process of defining a set of diagnostic tests to carefully assess the drill feed mechanism. We are using our test rover here on Earth to try out these tests before we run them on Mars,” Curiosity Deputy Project Manager Steven Lee at JPL said Monday. “To be cautious, until we run the tests on Curiosity, we want to restrict any dynamic changes that could affect the diagnosis. That means not moving the arm and not driving, which could shake it.”“We said ‘go,’ and it just didn’t go,” says Ashwin Vasavada, a project scientist at JPL told NPR.The drill feed mechanism pushes the front of the drill outward from the turret of tools at the end of Curiosity’s robotic arm. The drill collects powdered rock that is analyzed by laboratory instruments inside the rover.Even as it remains stranded, the rover is studying its surroundings and monitoring the environment, rather than driving or using its arm for science.‘We’re keeping busy with using the other instruments on the rover while they do these tests,’ said Ashwin Vasavada, project scientist.At its current location, Curiosity has driven 9.33 miles since landing inside Mars’ Gale Crater in August 2012. That includes more than half a mile since departing a cluster of scenic mesas and buttes – called “Murray Buttes” – in September. Curiosity has climbed 541 feet in elevation since landing, including 144 feet since departing Murray Buttes, according to NASA.Since 2012, Curiosity has uncovered geologic evidence of an ancient environment that could have supported primitive life early in the red planet’s history. At Mount Sharp, the rover plans to climb to higher and younger rock formations.Before the drill mechanism snag, the six-wheel rover found more evidence of a watery history on the slopes of Mount Sharp including the presence of certain chemicals that suggests a warmer and wetter past unlike the current frigid, harsh environment.JPL, a division of Caltech, manages NASA’s Mars Science Laboratory Project for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington, and built the Curiosity rover.For more information about the mission, visit www.mars.jpl.nasa.gov/msl.

Local NewsBusiness VarmX appoints Dr. Gerard Short as Chief Medical Officer WhatsApp LEIDEN, The Netherlands–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jan 27, 2021– VarmX, a biotech company focusing on the development of innovative approaches for the reversal of anticoagulation, today announces the appointment of Dr. Gerard Short, MBBS, as Chief Medical Officer (CMO). As CMO, Dr. Short will be responsible for overseeing the clinical development of VarmX’s pipeline, including progression of its lead product, VMX-C001, into clinical proof of concept and registrational studies. Dr. Short brings to VarmX extensive clinical development expertise, with a particular focus on rare diseases and gene therapy for haematological disorders. With more than 20 years of experience working within the sector – for both big pharma and biotech – he has established a strong track record of successfully leading teams in clinical development and medical affairs. Alexander Vos, CEO of VarmX, said:“We are delighted to welcome a person of Gerard’s calibre to our team. His proven knowledge in clinical, medical, and regulatory affairs, combined with his history of successfully advancing programs into the clinic, will be instrumental as VarmX enters a key transition phase to becoming a clinical stage company in 2021.” “I’m pleased to be joining VarmX at this stage in the Company’s evolution,”commented Dr. Gerard Short, CMO of VarmX, on his appointment.“I recognise the potential that the lead compound, VMX-C001, holds as an effective and differentiated antidote to oral anticoagulants, reversing the severe consequences that patients face. As such, I look forward eagerly to further progress the program towards the start of clinical studies later this year.” Dr. Short joins VarmX from Freeline Therapeutics, where he served for five years as SVP Clinical and Regulatory and later SVP Medical Science. During this time, he grew the medical, clinical, and regulatory groups, and established an in-house pharmacovigilance function. Further, he advanced gene therapy clinical programmes in haemophilia B and Fabry’s disease. Before Freeline, Dr. Short spent a decade at Genzyme, preceding and following its acquisition by Sanofi. He held roles of increasing responsibility, ultimately serving as Global Development Team Leader leading innovative treatment programmes targeting Pompe’s disease (phase 3) and acute leukaemia. Prior to Genzyme, Dr. Short established his clinical development career through a series of roles at Novartis, Pfizer and Sanofi-Synthelabo following eight years as a clinical practitioner. Dr. Short received his Bachelor of Medicine (MBBS) degree from St. Mary’s Hospital Medical School (now part of Imperial College) and holds a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree from London Business School. In addition, he is a Member of the Royal College of Physicians (MRCP UK) and a Fellow of the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Medicine (FFPM).

In a letter addressed to Chief Justice Govind Mathur, the HCBA has sought clarity as to what matters constitute “urgent matters” and whether all bail/ anticipatory bail applications would alone be treated as urgent for enabling e-filing. Similar queries are also sought with respect to civil cases and the Association has asked whether any categorization has been made for urgency in civil matters. Inter alia, the letter points out that the E-filing notice is silent with respect to filing of vakalatnama and the modes and methods thereto and it also gives an impression that for e-filing, affidavits would be required to be sworn at Allahabad, which makes the entire system illusory amid lockdown. “The necessity of filing vakalatnama and swearing of affidavit at Allahabad would make whole system illusory in this period of lockdown when all movements are restricted. Furthermore, in case a client or pairokar can come to Allahabad in violation of the lockdown, the lawyers and clerks would be subjected to exposure to infection of Covid 19 on account of physical interaction which would defeat the purpose of the system,” the letter states. In this backdrop the Association has suggested that Aadhar based applications may be used for eliminating physical presence of client or pairokar while fixing responsibility on the relevant persons for averments made. “Adhaar e-sign would obviate the necessity of filing affidavits as also digital signatures and secure the physical well being of Advocate and their clerks by eliminating physical interaction,” the letter states. Clarification is also sought in the direction that only lawyers on the Advocates roll of the High Court will be given access to the video link with a corresponding link to the designated senior Advocate whose name may be clearly mentioned in the case. The Association has lastly urged the court to not pass any adverse orders against the lawyers in case they default in following the procedure, given that the changes in the procedure are “drastic” and lawyers need some time to “understand and adopt” the system. They have also urged that the present system of normal filing should be continued for a period of one month so as to provide time to lawyers for upgrading their windows, internet connectivity, etc. Read Letter Next Story

Long Snapper Jon Dorenbos announced an Eagles’ daft pick last night in Philadelphia. Jon will be in Ocean City performing his magic show at the Music Pier on May 13th. By Tim Kelly Myles Garrett, a defensive end from Texas A&M, may be the first overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, but make no mistake about it: the main star of the draft, which kicked off Thursday night and continues through tomorrow, is the city of Philadelphia.Ocean City resident Billy Schweim, whose ESPN 97.3 radio talk show can be heard Saturday mornings from 10 a.m. to 12 noon, said Philadelphia allowed the NFL to make its draft a bigger event than some other sports’ playoff games.“More than any other major league, the NFL does a great job of making its sport accessible and interesting to its fans year ‘round,” said Schweim. “The draft is a great example of the league’s ability to market its product.”Schweim cited Philadelphia’s venue of the Museum of Art and the Ben Franklin Parkway — uniquely suited to showcase everything from the city’s Independence Day fireworks celebration and concert to a pair of Papal Masses — as the only performance space of its kind.Chloe and Halle Berry perform the National Anthem to kick off the start of the 2017 NFL Draft in front of more than 100,000 fans. (Photo credit: NFL.com)The NFL reportedly invested $20 million in building a huge stage on the steps of the Art Museum, made famous in the “Rocky” movie franchise, and other preparations. The so-called “Selection Square,” where representatives of each NFL team made the actual draft picks, was set up in the rotunda of the Franklin Institute next to the huge marble statue of Ben Franklin. A 100,000-square ft. NFL Shop was installed and had a line to get in Friday.There was a red carpet area where the first round picks strutted in expensive designer suits, a concession row featuring a wide range of food and drink concessions, as well as a photo station where fans could pose with the Lombardi Trophy and view a full collection of Super Bowl championship rings. NFL marketing executive Jessica Christ said the merchandise sales exceeded expectations in the first two days, according to published reports.Beyond the setting, Philadelphia’s legendary fans showed up in record numbers for an NFL draft and provided energy and noise never before seen. Published reports estimated 100,000 fans showed up for the first night’s selection of draft rounds 1 and 2 and even more packed the Parkway on Friday.“I heard (NFL executive and former Eagle) Troy Vincent say that Philly blew Chicago away,” said Schweim, in reference to the Windy City’s effort to host the draft last year. “Maybe Philly should have it every year.”The NFL Draft logo dominates a huge sign on stage in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.Philadelphia’s favorable geographic location allowed representation by fans of many other teams such as the New York Jets and Giants, Baltimore Ravens, Washington, Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns. Despite this, the dominant fan base came from the host city.“I think the Philadelphia fans’ reputation is something of a cliché, and some of the fans try to live up to it,” said Schweim. “At the same time, they are showing enthusiasm and passion that can’t be matched.”The fans booed NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell every time he walked to the stage, as well as the draft selections for divisional rivals Washington and New York. But as expected, they saved the most venom for their most bitter rival, the Dallas Cowboys. On Saturday, former Dallas wide receiver Drew Pearson tried to taunt the fans: “I want to thank the Philly fans for allowing me to have a career,” he said, with the boos raining down to the point of nearly drowning out Pearson’s words.Of course they roared with cheers on Thursday night when Temple linebacker Haasan Reddick was the 13th overall selection (Arizona Cardinals) and the Eagles went “on the clock” in advance of their selection of Derek Bennett,a defensive end from Tennessee.Ocean City resident, Alec Wisnefski enjoyed the opportunity to meet Corey Davis.All of this made for what the industry calls “good TV” and results in the audience sticking with the coverage through hours and hours of programming and commercials.“I was a bit perplexed with the Eagles pick,” Schweim said. “I was expecting them to take a wide receiver or a defensive back there.” They did grab Sidney Jones, a corner from the University of Washington in the second round with the 43rd overall selection.On today’s show Schweim will talk about the draft and will speak to former Temple star running back Paul Palmer who coached Reddick when Haasan attended Haddon Heights High School.Ocean City’s Jake Schneider, Flynn DeVlieger, and Brady Rauner had great seats for watching all the action.
