first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Indiana Corn and Soybean Score Presidential Candidates on Ag Issues SHARE Name Sym Last Change How Indiana Crops are Faring Versus Other States Wheat ZWN21 (JUL 21) 680.75 -3.00 IN candidate scorecard releasedOn a rainy Thursday morning the president of the Indiana Corn Growers Association took a break from field preparation in Spencer County to get back in the office and focus on candidates running for U.S. President as they begin to pop up in the Hoosier state. With the May primary getting closer the ICGA has released a scorecard to illustrate where the candidates stand on the most pressing farmer issues. Mike Nichols told HAT the scorecard is important information for farmers, but it does not constitute a candidate endorsement.“We feel it’s important that the individual will make up his own mind. He needs to vote for his pocketbook, and I think it would be very presumptuous for us to do that for them. We’re all intelligent individuals and can make up our own mind, but I think this year with the conditions that we’re in with commodity prices, we need to vote our pocketbook.”The Indiana corn and soybean policy organizations used public statements, survey responses, sponsored legislation and even social media statements to score the candidates on support of the Renewable Fuel Standard, the farm bill, the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement (TPP), repeal of EPA’s Waters of the US rule (WOTUS), and voluntary GMO labeling legislation.“These are the issues that we see our very important to us,” Nichols said, “and I think the farmer needs to take a look at it and see where the five candidates stand. Are we supporting any particular one? No we’re not. All we’re saying is this is the information that we have to the best of our knowledge where they stand, and they just need to take a look at it. If they get the opportunity to quiz them about it, please do so. These are things that we feel we need to know.”Only Ohio Governor John Kasich supports all 5 corn and soybean positions. Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders only support 2 of the 5, and the front runners, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton both have question marks on an issue or 2 where their position is unknown. Was that a surprise to find?“It doesn’t surprise me. It may not be an issues they have dealt with because of where they’re located in the northeast. So I would understand that it may be an issue that they just haven’t come across.”Nichols added agriculture is very important not only to farmers but the state of Indiana’s economic engine, so he encouraged farmers and those in related industries take every opportunity to speak with the candidates as they visit Indiana and politely press them on ag issues.

Taken by Associated Press photograph Nick Ut Cong Huynh in 1972, it shows a naked Vietnamese girl fleeing from a napalm attack. News Follow the news on Norway NorwayEurope – Central Asia Online freedoms Freedom of expressionInternet “In this case, the rules that Facebook imposes on its users have clearly contravened freedom of information” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “The ‘decency’ rules used by this social network are so restrictive that they trample on the freedom to inform. We call on Facebook to add respect for the journalistic values of photos to these rules, and to ensure that their rules are never more severe than national legislations.”Deloire added: “By removing Nick Ut Cong Huynh’s photo, Facebook has censored a photo of unquestionable journalistic value, one that had a major impact on the history of Vietnam and the United States.”In the past few days, Facebook has either deleted the photo from the Facebook pages of several Norwegian users or suspended their accounts on the grounds that it violates its rules on nudity.The leading Norwegian evening newspaper Aftenposten printed the photo on its front page this afternoon along with a two-page letter to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.“I write you this letter because I’m concerned by the fact that the biggest media in the world is limiting freedoms instead of trying to broaden them, and because this is happening in a sometimes authoritarian fashion,” editor Espen Egil wrote.A few days ago, Facebook sent an injunction to Aftenposten ordering it to remove the photo from its page on the social network. But the photo was deleted before the newspaper could respond.Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg posted the photo on her own Facebook page today in a gesture of support. After the photo was also deleted from her page, she posted the message: “I want my children and other children to grow up in a society where history is taught as it was. Where they can learn from historical events and mistakes.”Facebook said: “We remove photographs of people displaying genitals or focusing in on fully exposed buttocks.” September 9, 2016 Facebook violates freedom of information by censoring iconic Vietnam War photo Receive email alertscenter_img News Espen Egil, editor in chief of Aftenposten, and the front page of September 9, 2016.

first_img Adoption of Open Standards Critical to the Future of the Connected Home, According to New Survey WhatsApp Twitter Facebook Pinterest Local NewsBusiness Pinterest By Digital AIM Web Support – January 28, 2021 Facebook WhatsApp FREMONT, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jan 28, 2021– More than three out of every four (76%) broadband service providers have either started to implement the Broadband Forum ’s User Services Platform (USP) or plan to do so in the next year, according to a new report out today. Respondents to a major new study into the future of the connected home commissioned by the Broadband Forum also predicted that a big increase in the number of smart home devices installed in homes would be a key driver for the continued growth of the connected device market over the next five years. The number of installed connected devices is expected to rise by a further 70% by 2025. The report highlighted fragmentation in both customer premises equipment (CPE) and middleware as being the biggest barriers to the growth of the connected home. As smaller, innovative firms create technological improvements, such as Wi-Fi mesh, they need to ensure their products can easily integrate with others, and service providers need to avoid being locked in to single vendor solutions. Broadband Forum’s Vice President of Strategic Marketing and Business Development Craig Thomas said: “As the demand for connected home services continues to proliferate, service providers are playing less of a central role in the consumers’ smart homes and have instead decided to partner or concentrate on enabling third parties to play their role within a managed service offering. This has led to the fragmentation which industry wide standards play a pivotal role in combating.” “The survey report highlights the importance of USP in ensuring service and application providers can effectively manage devices and the Wi-Fi experience to seamlessly navigate the connected home environment. With the results of this global survey, we are delighted that so many service providers across the industry recognize the benefits in utilizing or planning to deploy USP in the near future,” Mr Thomas continued. This free to download report is a follow up to the ‘Efficient and Automated Smart Home Rollout’ report produced in association with the Broadband Forum in 2015. As then, Omdia conducted a quantitative service provider survey of over 100 representatives across 19 countries, however, for this report Omdia also added in-depth qualitative interviews with key executives from 11 service providers in Latin America, North America, Europe and China. As well as information and data from this survey and interviews, Omdia has included data from its extensive research sets across the broadband, connected and smart home industries. The report also revealed that 75% of all broadband subscriptions on a global basis will be on tariffs with speeds of more than 100Mbps by 2025. 16% will be on speeds of 1Gbps or more and the average global download speed of over 350Mbps by 2025 as more service providers actively invest in the home network and shift their attention to addressing consumer dissatisfaction surrounding home Wi-Fi related issues. 64% of respondents advised that slow broadband speed is the most common cause of user support calls, followed by Wi-Fi device configuration/setup (40%) and broadband latency/jitter (38%). The report highlighted that the leading problems encountered with customer’s Wi-Fi was low coverage/range, latency/jitter and slow speed and service providers’ first instinct was to provide Wi-Fi extenders to solve the problem. However, not all Wi-Fi issues can be resolved by taking this action and it can be a wasted investment for those suffering from congestion or device connectivity issues. Smart Wi-Fi is on the rise and 63% of respondents to Omdia’s Service Provider Connected Home survey expect smart Wi-Fi’s penetration in their networks to be 25% or above within three years. At Broadband World Forum last year, Broadband Forum’s Cloud CO virtual demonstration highlighted how its specifications are enabling closed loop automation of Wi-Fi in multi-vendor environments. “The connected home has become an essential part of the broadband network and with the continued growth of connected devices and variety of applications being run, it is essential that broadband service providers have access to a high-quality and reliable network,” said Omdia’s Research Director, Service Provider Consumer Michael Philpott. “Industry standards such as Broadband Forum’s USP and open frameworks are vital to this success in order to fully equip broadband service providers to dynamically compete with global tech and consumer electronics companies.” The evolution of the popular TR-069 (CWMP) system, USP is the standardized, interoperable platform that uses the best of open source and standards and enables faster, more efficient, and reliable monitoring, controlling, and management of the multitude of connected devices and subscriber Wi-Fi in real-time. The report also highlighted that broadband service providers seek to see continued standards work maintain customer trust, eradicate fragmentation and facilitate the development of open platforms to fully drive third party developer scale.
