The fiscal cliff keeps getting closer and Nebraska Senator Mike Johanns says there is a path to the budget deal even though true tax code and entitlement reform can’t happen in the next 30 days. Johanns says there is plenty of anxiety over the fiscal cliff and whether there will be any movement on the farm bill.“If the calendar flips over then you do have a new Congress, although I do believe the Senate would be in good shape to just pass a farm bill, whether we have to do it again after the first of the year or whether we could get something done before the first of the year,” he said. “The House still does not have a farm bill that has gone across the floor and therein lies the issue. If the House would just pass whatever version it likes then it goes to conference and we could negotiate it. I think if we got to conference we could get a farm bill done.”Johanns says when he was the Secretary of Agriculture USDA acted as a resource with a hands off attitude. He says USDA has not weighed in on whether they like the House or Senate version of the farm bill better and have stayed away from submitting their own farm bill proposal leading to more frustration.“Farm bills are never easy to get done. I don’t care if you think you have a lot of money to spend or budget is the issue and budget is the issue now. I just think they’re always tough. You get these regional differences of opinion and that can lead to a very difficult situation but we got it done. It got bipartisan support both in the committee and in the Senate. When we passed it, it had over 60 votes so it cleared the Senate fairly easily. Here I am and the rest of the senators who pay attention are saying let’s just get a House version. Then we can go battle in conference and get a bill done, but we’re just not there yet.”Senator Johanns (pictured right with Alan Kemper) sees the estate tax as a part of the fiscal cliff and if something doesn’t get done by the end of the year the rate moves up to 55-percent with a 1-million dollar exemption from a 35-percent rate with a 5-million dollar exemption. That tax is high on his radar and he would like fiscal cliff negotiations to include an agreement that the estate tax remains as it is now.[audio:https://www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2012/11/Johanns-on-cliff-and-farm-bill.mp3|titles=Johanns on cliff and farm bill] Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Nov 28, 2012 Home News Feed Former Ag Secretary Talks Fiscal Cliff, Farm Bill and Estate Tax Facebook Twitter Previous articleCheck Bins Through WinterNext articleSeed Consultants Market Watch 10:43 update with Gary Wilhelmi 11/29/2012 Andy Eubank Former Ag Secretary Talks Fiscal Cliff, Farm Bill and Estate Tax SHARE SHARE
News to go further EgyptMiddle East – North Africa Less press freedom than ever in Egypt, 10 years after revolution February 6, 2021 Find out more December 2, 2015 – Updated on March 8, 2016 RSF condemns arrest of yet another journalist in Egypt Receive email alerts As six journalists sentenced to life imprisonment await their appeal hearing tomorrow, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the arrest of yet another journalist critical of the government on charges of publishing false information and belonging to a banned organization (the Muslim Brotherhood). News Follow the news on Egypt EgyptMiddle East – North Africa Detained woman journalist pressured by interrogator, harassed by prison staff Organisation Ismail Alexandrani, a freelance investigative reporter and researcher specializing in jihadi movements in the Sinai Peninsula, was arrested at Hurghada airport on his return from Berlin on 29 November. After being interrogated by national security prosecutors yesterday, he was placed in provisional detention for 15 days.“Ismail Alexandrani’s arrest is yet further evidence of the government’s determination to persecute dissident journalists,” said Alexandra El Khazen, the head of RSF’s Middle East desk. “Continually arresting and convicting journalists on the same trumped-up charges encourages media self-censorship. We urge the authorities to free all unjustly detained journalists and drop the charges against them.”The interrogation of Alexandrani, who writes for Le Monde Diplomatique, the Lebanese daily As Safir and other foreign media, is due to continue tomorrow.Reporters are no longer able to work normally because of the tension in the Sinai Peninsula resulting from jihadi attacks on the security forces. Journalists must limit themselves to reporting the official version of shootings and bombings (including the number of casualties) or risk a heavy fine under the anti-terrorism law adopted in August.The six journalists whose appeal will be heard tomorrow were convicted in April along with leaders of the banned Muslim Brotherhood in the case known as the “Rabaa operations room.” They were accused of publishing false news, inciting chaos and violence and being part of an “operations room” that organized attacks on the government during the August 2013 demonstrations in Cairo’s Rabaa Adawiya Square in support of deposed President Mohamed Morsi.The Morsi government violated freedom of information but the situation is much worse since its removal and replacement by a government led by President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi. Ranked 158th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index, Egypt is now one of the world’s biggest prisons for journalists with at least 20 currently detained.

JordanMiddle East – North Africa June 15, 2020 Find out more August 12, 2020 Find out more Follow the news on Jordan News Reporters Without Borders today condemned the confiscation by the Jordanian authorities of the videotapes of an interview by the pan-Arab satellite TV station Al-Jazeera with King Abdallah’s uncle, Prince Hassan Bin Talal. The tapes were seized from Al-Jazeera journalist Ghassan Ben Jeddou at Amman airport after he interviewed the prince on 18 April.“Such abusive practices, which we keep on seeing in Jordan, show that press freedom is accorded little importance,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The work of journalists is often hampered by arbitrary decisions. King Abdallah has repeatedly promised to defend civil rights, especially through his ‘Jordan First’ programme for promoting development and social cohesion. We call on him to keep his promises, as individual freedoms are still often violated in his country.”Al Jazeera’s Beirut bureau chief and the presenter of a Saturday programme called “Open Dialogue,” Ben Jeddou went to Amman specially to interview Prince Hassan about Middle Eastern issues. The prince talked about US policies in the region, sectarian conflicts and the peace initiative discussed at the most recent Arab League summit. All of the videotapes and photos of the interview were taken from Ben Jeddou when he returned to the airport after the interview.He told Reporters Without Borders that the tapes were seized because he referred in the interview to a US report mentioning a Saudi official’s involvement in financing Sunnis to fight Hezbollah. There was a reference to the report in an article by Seymour M. Hersh in The New Yorker on 5 March.Jordanian government spokesman Nasser Judeh confirmed the confiscation of the videotapes without giving any explanation. Ben Jeddou said the authorities told him that some of the things said in the interview could affect Jordan’s diplomatic relations with Saudi Arabia. Prince Hassan was reportedly not told in advance that the videotapes would be seized. His press spokesman said the prince gave the interview as a “private citizen” and that his comments were “neutral.”This is not the first time Al-Jazeera has had problems in Jordan. Amman bureau chief Yasser Abu Hilala was briefly detained on 8 June 2006 as he interviewed the brother-in-law of Abu Musab Al-Zarkawi, the leader of Al-Qaeda’s Iraqi branch. He was unable to continue the interview.

The redesigned blog provides the latest news posts, construction and project pictures of the week, links to the Construction Authority’s Twitter feed and to the agency’s Facebook and YouTube pages.It also now includes a dedicated community section “Where Will You Ride?” that encourages current and future riders to share the destinations they will travel to while riding the Gold Line. The “Where Will You Ride?” page can be accessed through www.iwillride.org/where or directly at www.wherewillyouride.org.“Although we are several months from completing the next 11.5 miles of the Gold Line light rail system, from the existing Sierra Madre Villa station in Pasadena to the future APU/Citrus College Station in Azusa, the excitement in the community for the line’s opening is very strong,” said Lisa Levy Buch, Director of Public Affairs for the Construction Authority.“While we all patiently wait for passenger service, the new blog page provides a fun opportunity for people to share that excitement and their future plans,” Buch said.The blog was first designed and launched in 2008 as an advocacy tool by Mt. Sierra College students wanting to build a coalition of fellow college students along the Foothill Gold Line corridor who supported funding the light rail line to Montclair.The students designed the initial site and then built grassroots support for the campaign, including signing hundreds of students up that pledged “I will ride!” Students also coordinated and spoke in support of project funding at local press conferences and at several Metro board meetings in 2008 and 2009.In 2009, the Mt. Sierra College students asked that the Construction Authority build on their efforts and maintain the site moving forward. The site has continued to play an important role in the agency’s communication program ever since.“Today, nearly 2,000 project stakeholders regularly receive updates on the Foothill Gold Line’s planning and construction using iwillride.org,” Buch said “What the students started, we have been proud to continue and expand to meet the changing needs of our stakeholders.” Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy First Heatwave Expected Next Week Subscribe Community News Community News Name (required) Mail (required) (not be published) Website Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena 8 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Top of the News EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS HerbeautyHere Is What Scientists Say Will Happen When You Eat AvocadosHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyWhat’s Your Zodiac Flower Sign?HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyA Mental Health Chatbot Which Helps People With DepressionHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyLove Astrology: 12 Types Of Boyfriends Based On Zodiac SignsHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyIs It Bad To Give Your Boyfriend An Ultimatum?HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty10 Sweet Things Every Guy Wants To Hear From The Woman He LovesHerbeautyHerbeauty
