first_img Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Sandy Will Impact Food Prices SHARE Sandy Will Impact Food Prices As the east coast begins to clean up after Hurricane Sandy, assessments are being made on how the food sector will be impacted by the damage. The cities of the east coast are major demand centers for meat, fruits, and vegetables. Regular shipments of food were shut down during the storm, but Dr. Milt McGiffen of University of California Riverside says delivering food to the storm ravaged area will be an issue for some time to come, “While there was panic food buying ahead of the storm, the real issue is transportation — just not being able to get the food delivered to those cities.”  In addition, several refineries were shut down and disrupted the flow of gasoline and heating oil, although McGiffen says these disruptions will not last long. Several crops that are part of our Thanksgiving dinners were impacted and may be in short supply or at higher prices, “Most of our cranberries come from Massachusetts and New Jersey, so the supply of fresh cranberries may be affected.”  Another Thanksgiving Day staple also found itself in the path of the storm with most of the crop still in the field, “Most of our sweet potatoes come from North Carolina.” Previous articleNovozymes Adds Avantec to Enzyme PortfolioNext articleSeed Consultants Marketwatch 10:25 update with Gary Wilhelmi 11/1/2012 Gary Truitt SHARE While flooding was widespread, he says there was not much damage to field crops, “In most of New England, the crops are out of the field; and even further south, most of the corn and soybeans had already been harvested.”  However, only about 25% of the cotton crop had been harvested in the Carolinas and soybeans were also still in the field. USDA officials say it will be at least another week before the extent of the crop damage is known. Some orchards sustained damage; and widespread power outages hit dairy and other livestock operations. [audio:https://www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2012/10/stormdamage.mp3|titles=Sandy Will Impact Food Prices] Some media reports have suggested the storm will have an impact on the national economy. McGiffen says any impact will be short lived, “I do not think this will have a national impact.” While the cleanup will continue for months and even years, the immediate impact on food and fuel prices and supplies should only last about a month.

Most of the guidelines issued are practically already in use of ARCs in one form or the other, as the actions and non-actions are always the subject matter of judicial review. Our present study is confined mainly to the following two aspects, which have been introduced in order to enhance transparency in the process of sale of secured assets: Firstly, the ARCs have been asked to consult with investors in their security receipts while selling the assets. In this regard it is to mention that under section 7 (3) and (4) SARFAESI Act, the Qualified Buyers (QB) / holders of security receipts (SRs) / Investor – holding SRs; not less than 75% of the total value of the SRs issued – are entitled to call a meeting of all the QBs and every resolution passed in such meeting shall be binding on the company. Now, in order to enhance transparency in the process of sale of secured assets, para 2(ii) of RBI FPC dated 16/7/2020 has created and other essential member / participant in decision making in the day to day affairs and may impact the pace of resolution and time lime, for the want of coordination amongst all the (QB)/Investor/holders of SRs. At present ARCs in their capacity as Trustee (of securitization Trust created u/s 7 SARFAESI Act) were taking steps in accordance with extant guidelines issued by RBI itself; for prompt action/ resolution of NPAs acquired by them. According to present practice, assignor banks & FIs are also holding periodical meetings for taking review of portfolios/accounts assigned by them to ARCs. Therefore, the interest of all Investors / SR holders was already protected. Secondly, the RBI has asked ARCs to ensure that persons connected to the defaulting promoter do not buy the assets. Buying of auctioned assets by a promoter is barred under Section 29A of the Insolvency Act. Presently (i) IBC code 2016 and (ii) SARFAESI Act 2002 both the enactments are operating in the different areas/premises. IBC 2016 applies (i) for reorganisation and insolvency resolution of entities and (ii) on all loans whether they are secured or unsecured. Whereas SARFAESI Act applies only on (a) securitization and (b) reconstruction of financial assets and (c) enforcement of securities (secured assets). The present RBI guidelines in the form of FPC for ARCs – to ensure that persons connected to the defaulting promoter do not buy the assets. Buying of auctioned assets by a promoter is barred under Section 29A of the Insolvency Act. may not seems to accelerate the process of selling the assets, instead there are apprehensions that it will restrict the scope of marketability of the mortgage/charged assets. It is worth pointing that Para 2(i) of FPC itself provides for participation of as many prospective buyers as possible and at present the restrictions under section 29A IBC 2016 are being relaxed. Further, as principle of natural justice any coercive action against the promoters & properties if the borrowers may be taken as a last resort. In this backdrop, making it mandatory for – ARCs to ensure that persons connected to the defaulting promoter do not buy the assets. Buying of auctioned assets by a promoter is barred under Section 29A of the Insolvency Act will give a tough time for early resolution of the NPAs. Further, The ARCs have been created with the primary objective and entrusted with the obligation of the unlocking the economic worth and realization of the optimum value of the bad assets (NPAs) within the shortest time period. Further, the above guidelines have been issued with the intentions to enhance transparency in the process of sale may in fact decelerate. /slow down the disposal resolution of assetsViews are personal only.

first_imgGilbert Carrasquillo/Getty Images(NORRISTOWN, Pennsylvania) — Anticipation inside and outside a Pennsylvania courthouse was growing Monday morning as Bill Cosby arrived for sentencing as the first major celebrity convicted in the #MeToo era for sexually abusing a woman.When the Montgomery County Court in Norristown opened its doors at 9 a.m., there was already a line of people outside waiting to get a seat in the courtroom for Cosby’s sentencing. Inside the courthouse, across a marble balcony overlooking an atrium from where news reporters were lined up 30 deep waiting to get the best seats in court, one of the jurors who convicted the 81-year-old Cosby this spring was spotted slipping into a court office.He declined to comment when approached by an ABC News reporter.Outside, as a phalanx of camera crews lined the path, Cosby walked from his black SUV into the courthouse. One of those outside the courthouse waiting for Cosby was a frequent protester Bird Milliken, who came with an effigy of Cosby in a shopping cart with a bright pink sign around the neck, reading, “America’s First #MeToo Conviction,” followed by the words. “Guilty, Guilty, Guilty.” Milliken, also known the “Bubble Lady” for the bubble machine she totes around, is an ardent supporter of Cosby’s accusers. During the second trial, she got Cosby victim Andrea Constand – the primary accuser in both trials – to autograph her arm.Milliken later had the signature tattooed to her arm permanently. Cosby was convicted in April on three felony counts of aggravated indecent assault stemming from drugging and molesting Constand in his suburban Philadelphia home 14 years ago.The conviction came about 11 months after a mistrial was declared in Cosby’s first trial when a jury failed to reach a verdict.The jury of seven men and five women deliberated a little over 12 hours before reaching a unanimous verdict in the case.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

first_imgBytmonas/iStock(WASHINGTON) — More guns were found and detained from passengers or in carry-on bags at airport security checkpoints across the United States in 2019 than recorded in agency history, according to the Transportation Security Administration.The agency found 4,432 firearms at these checkpoints — a 5% increase from the previous year, the agency reported on Wednesday. Of the weapons discovered, the press release said 87% were loaded. Nearly 40% of those were found with a full round in the chamber, the TSA press release said.“The continued increase in the number of firearms that travelers bring to airport checkpoints is deeply troubling,” TSA Administrator David Pekoske said in the press release. “There is a proper way to travel safely with a firearm. First and foremost, it should be unloaded.”He added, “It should be packed in a hard-sided locked case, taken to the airline check-in counter to be declared, and checked.”TSA has set strict laws prohibiting passengers from bringing firearms aboard planes. They do, however, allow weapons with proper permits to travel in checked baggage, requiring that they are unloaded and packed in locked and hard-sided cases, with the ammunition stowed in its original box.Passengers who carry legally are also subject to local and state gun laws wherever they land.TSA officials detected these firearms at 278 airports nationwide last year. The press released named five cities where the most firearms were detected at checkpoints: Atlanta, Dallas-Fort Worth, Denver, Houston and Phoenix.The airports with the highest number of gun seizures in 2019 were:Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International with 323Dallas/Fort Worth International with 217Denver International with 140George Bush Intercontinental with 138Phoenix Sky Harbor International with 132The airports above were also on TSA’s list for 2018.Hartsfield-Jackson also set the record for most firearms detained in one month — 34 were found in May 2019.The checkpoints experienced a rocky start to 2019, as the United States was in the midst of one of the longest government shutdowns in history. The rate of unscheduled absences at airports throughout the country spiked, and security screening lines grew, forcing travelers to often wait longer than an hour — sometimes missing their flights.The Atlanta airport reported a breach of security in early 2019 — unrelated to the shutdown — when a passenger traveling to Japan successfully brought a gun through security and on to a Delta Airlines flight. The gun was not discovered until the passenger told Delta authorities what he had brought “upon arrival” in Japan.TSA also reminded travelers that individuals who are caught with firearms at airport security checkpoints are subject to federal civil penalties of up to $13,000.ABC News reached out to the agency for comment on next steps.
