Governor Focuses on Rural BrodbandNext articleMorning Outlook Gary Truitt During a recent Senate Ag Committee hearing, Indiana Senator Joe Donnelly pressed a top USDA official on conservation regulations and proposed clean water rules. NRCS chief Jason Weller was in the hot seat when Senator Donnelly pressed him on efforts by EPA and USDA to regulate conservation efforts.  Donnelly said farmers want clean water and don’t need more regulations to achieve it, “Our farmers feel we work nonstop every day to voluntarily comply to make our waters cleaner, and all we hear is more government regulations.” Indiana Senator Presses Top Administration Official on Conservation Regulations Indiana Senator Presses Top Administration Official on Conservation Regulations The South Bend Democrat said the proposed interpretive rule by the EPA would force some farmers to get permits in order to implement conservation practices on their farms, “Many Hoosier farmers say they were unaware that using conservation practices would trigger clean water act permitting requirements.”  During the hearing, Donnelly expressed the frustration he has heard regarding the confusing attempt by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Army Corps of Engineers, and the NRCS to update the rules defining waters protected by the CWA. He asked Chief Weller if USDA and EPA were aware that their proposal would have these unintended consequences. SHARE By Gary Truitt – Dec 8, 2014 center_img SHARE Weller admitted the proposed EPA rule would have unintended consequences, “The attempt was to help streamline program and regulations, but we are also aware that there have been unintended consequences and confusion and even a disincentive to participate in conservation efforts.” Donnelly urged the agencies to work more effectively with the agricultural community to solve the problem without additional, burdensome regulation. Finally, Donnelly emphasized the great work many Hoosier farmers have voluntarily taken to improve water quality throughout the state and questioned Chief Weller on how we can best expand those efforts.   Additionally, Donnelly has worked to improve NRCS policies regarding cover crop management.

first_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Which cities across the U.S. have residents spending more than the median ceiling of household income to own or rent? Ten cities make the list of places where the gap is widest between what people earn and what they pay for housing, according to a study by Realtor.com.For the study, realtor.com looked at the median monthly housing costs in approximately 500 metros to pinpoint the markets where residents are spending the most on their homes by dividing the median monthly costs for renters and homeowners by the median monthly household income. The study limited its rankings to one metro per state.With a median price list of $895,800 and  30 percent share of the median household income of $73,663 going towards housing for the average household, Santa Cruz in California topped the study’s ranking as the most unaffordable city in the country. However, there might be hope for buyers still looking to enter this market. The study pointed out that despite the large gap in home prices versus average household income, over the past 12 months the prices in this seaside city have remained flat with inventory rising 45 percent.If the West Coast has the most unaffordable city in the country, the East Coast is not far behind, with Miami, Florida taking the second spot on the rankings for the most unaffordable housing markets. A household earning a median income of $51,758 pays 29.7 percent of its income towards housing in this city where the median list price is slightly more than $385,000.Grants Pass, Oregon was third in terms of unaffordability with 27.1 percent of a median household income of $40,705 going towards housing. Home prices in this city, the study revealed stood at $334,000.Though Atlantic City, New Jersey is a relative bargain compared to most of the North East for retirees, according to the study, home prices here have been rising 6 percent year over year. With 26.9 percent of a median income of $57,514 going towards housing and a median list price at around $240,000, it is no surprise that the city was ranked fourth in this list.New York, New York with a median list price of $515,100 and 26.4 percent of the median household income going towards housing, rounded off the Top 5 on this list.Click here to read the complete list of the most unaffordable housing markets.

first_imgTime is what we never have enough of. It is that which we spend, waste, or use wisely. Time is at the heart of hundreds of aphorisms and clichés.Time is also a regular theme at the movies — right back to when Harold Lloyd, in one of cinema’s most iconic images, dangled from the hands of a skyscraper clock in “Safety Last!” (1923).This summer, Lloyd is missing from a Harvard film series about the nature of time. But the clock is there: as specter, savior, puzzle, and travel agent. It is central to the four screenings left in “Time & Time Again at the Movies.”You may have missed the first movie last week: “Murder on the Orient Express,” a 1974 murder mystery based on an Agatha Christie tale. It’s worth it just for glamorous late-career glimpses of Lauren Bacall and Ingrid Bergman.Next up is Tuesday’s “Time Bandits,” a 1981 fantasy directed by onetime Monty Python cut-up Terry Gilliam. Within the stellar cast is Ralph Richardson, who plays the Supreme Being. (Thirty years ago, in theater terms, he really was the Supreme Being.)The “Time & Time Again” series — with each film timed to start at 7 p.m. in Science Center Lecture Hall C — continues July 16 and 30 and concludes on Aug. 13. The sponsor is Harvard’s Collection of Historical Scientific Instruments, which this spring opened its eccentrically diverse exhibit “Time & Time Again.” This curated collage of artifacts, up through Dec. 6, is a joint venture with the Harvard Museums of Science and Culture.The exhibit is a sort of intellectual force field throughout this year. In addition to the summer foray into film, it has also gathered around itself a program of concerts, lectures, and — coming this fall — courses.Tonight’s “Time Bandits” explores one of cinema’s most durable themes related to the tick-tock of the merciless clock: time travel, a science-fiction genre that allows us to go back in time (or to look ahead at it).“Time Bandits” brings the viewer fantasy visits with not only Richardson’s doddering and dangerous Supreme Being, but with Robin Hood (John Cleese), Napoleon (Ian Holm), and — from Greek mythology — Agamemnon (Sean Connery, who also plays a modern-day fireman). Doing the time traveling is an 11-year-old dreamer named Kevin (Craig Warnock), along with a clutch of six dwarfs with names like Fidgit, Og, and Vermin.Among other adventures, these unlikely time travelers (the only kind) get to board the RMS Titanic just as it is sinking. Looking back on a movie made in 1981 also yields a look at a real artifact that’s traveled through time: a Polaroid camera. Kevin carries one everywhere.By chance, there is also a Polaroid camera in the “Time & Time Again” exhibit. It’s right next to the Victrola.Upcoming films include “Run Lola Run” on July 16, “Memento” on July 30, and “Primer” on Aug. 13. All films are shown at 7 p.m., Science Center Lecture Hall C.last_img read more
