VIDEO: At HLS, UN investigator announces probe of drone attacks by U.S.

first_imgAt a packed Harvard Law School event co-sponsored by the Human Rights Program and the Harvard National Security and Law Association, Ben Emmerson, United Nations special rapporteur on counterterrorism and human rights, announced plans to launch an investigation into the use of drone attacks which have caused civilian deaths—including those carried out by the U.S.“I will be launching an investigation unit within the special procedures of the [U.N.] Human Rights Council to inquire into individual drone attacks, and other forms of targeted killings conducted in counterterrorism operations, in which it has been alleged that civilian casualties have been inflicted,” Emmerson told the Law School audience on Thursday, Oct. 25.The unit will be established early next year in Geneva, with South African Christof Heyns, the U.N. special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, and a former visiting fellow with the Human Rights Program.During his talk, Emmerson described the principal challenges currently facing his mandate, including recent developments on the accountability of public officials for involvement in the U.S. policies of targeted killing, torture, secret detention and rendition. He addressed the positions taken on some of these key issues by the candidates to the U.S. presidential election, and gave an overview of the human rights issues currently heading the U.N.’s counterterrorism agenda.See a video of Emmerson’s talk on the Harvard Law School website.last_img read more

Fuel fix

first_imgAlso, the 2002 farm bill, which was passed early last summer, will provide some relief for farmers, he said.“This is a very generous farm bill,” he said. “Even if we have a depressed farm economy this bill will put money into the farm economy to pay bills.”According to the energy department, Georgia and the Gulf Coast states have the cheapest gasoline, averaging $1.579 a gallon as of early March. The West Coast has the most expensive unleaded gasoline, averaging $1.932 a gallon as of the same time. By Brad HaireUniversity of GeorgiaFuel is an important part of farming, but it’s normally not considered a major cost to farmers. But, if the United States invades Iraq, that could change, says a University of Georgia agricultural economist.Georgia farmers will soon be entering their fields to plant this season’s crops like peanuts, cotton, corn and tobacco. And they’ll be using a lot of fuel to keep their tractors and trucks and such on pace to get this crop in the ground and grown.High priceHistorically, war in the Middle East sends gas prices soaring in the United States and around the world. It also seems that all fingers now point to a U.S.- led invasion of Iraq – closer to sooner than later. Troops are in place and ready to go. Some reports say it could happen in a matter of weeks or even days. This situation has happened before. And when it did, fuel prices spiked, said Bill Givan, an Extension economist with the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.During the initial phase of the 1991 Gulf War, crude oil jumped above $40 a barrel, he said. Crude oil is used to produce gasoline and other fuels.VolatileKey price indicators for crude oil are volatile right now. The Organization of the Petroleum Producing Countries (OPEC) crude oil prices have danced around $32 a barrel, higher than its target prices of $22-$28 per barrel, for several months. West Texas Intermediate oil, U.S. crude oil, is around $36 a barrel, a level not seen since Oct. 1990, according to the Energy Department’s Energy Information Administration. Oil prices are expected to go even higher this go around.As of the second week in March, national unleaded gasoline prices averaged $1.686 a gallon. It now costs 54 cents per gallon more than this time last year to fill up on a tank of unleaded gas.Diesel fuel prices are already at record highs. It costs about 58 cent per gallon more than this time last year to fill up on a tank of diesel, according to a recent survey of service stations by the Energy Information Administration. The department predicts that U.S. fuel prices will soon reach an all-time high.Razor’s edge“Normally, fuel costs are not a major input farmers have to face,” Givan said. But he added the margin of profit now sits on a razor’s edge for many farming operations. Any increase in any cost, like gasoline, would cut into an already small margin of profit. The costs of some farm fertilizers and chemicals go up as crude oil prices increase, too, further cutting into profits.According to a study by the American Farm Bureau Federation, farmers pay an extra $1 billion in manufactured inputs, such as fertilizer, electricity and pesticides, for every $3 increase in the prices of a barrel of crude oil.But farmers, now, have had several years of depressed commodity prices and tough times. As a result, most farmers are running their businesses as efficiently as they can. If they’re not, Givan said, they’re probably not running at all.last_img read more

Government lawyers honor Tedcastle for lifetime achievement

first_img June 1, 2005 Regular News Government lawyers honor Tedcastle for lifetime achievement Thomas R. Tedcastle, general counsel for the House of Representatives, has been honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Bar’s Government Lawyers Section.“Tom Tedcastle has dedicated his professional life to the betterment of Florida government, and he has stretched outside the bounds of Florida to reach the highest levels of achievement in national legislative circles as well,” said Rep. Dudley Goodlette, R-Naples, who nominated Tedcastle for the award on behalf of 67 attorney members and staff of the House.This is only the third time the section has honored someone with its Lifetime Achievement Award, the other two being Janet Reno in 1996 and Bob Butterworth in 2002. The award was presented on the floor of the House near the end of the 2005 session.Tedcastle has been a full-time government employee for 22 years, 20 of those with the House where he held the positions of staff attorney for the Judiciary Committee, staff director of the Criminal Justice and Rules and Calendar committees, director of Bill Drafting Services, and general counsel.“Tom Tedcastle represents the essence of what a government lawyer should be,” Goodlette said. “Tom’s scholarly, fair, and reasoned advice makes those lawyers who serve in the legislature better-equipped, better-advised, and better able to serve the people of Florida.”Bar President Kelly Overstreet Johnson presented the award and noted Tedcastle’s work with the National Conference of State Legislators, where he has served as staff chair and a member of that organization’s executive committee. Johnson said Tedcastle’s work has benefitted not only Florida but other states and other nations as well.Goodlette said Tedcastle was one of the principle drafters of Art. I §24 of the Florida Constitution, which guarantees open records and meetings; Art. III §4(e), providing for open meetings of the legislature; Florida’s gift law; and other numerous ethics measures. He also was a principal drafter of much of the tort reform legislation throughout the last two decades and had a significant hand in preparing bills on a wide range of subjects, including capital punishment and implementation of Art. V.“In the world of term limits the Tom Tedcastles out there are absolutely necessary to this institution,” said Rep. Dennis Ross, R-Lakeland, adding that Tedcastle always delivers calm, deliberative advice even in the heat of the legislative process.Rep. Dan Gelber, D-Miami Beach, said Tedcastle distinguishes himself in the legislative process by his nonpartisan approach.“He has a respect for this process like no one else that is very, very deep,” Gelber said.“He’s a good man, and I am glad he is on my team,” said Speaker Allan Bense.center_img Government lawyers honor Tedcastle for lifetime achievementlast_img read more

On Compliance: Field of membership rule changes

first_img continue reading » In late October the National Credit Union Administration finalized changes to part 701 its rules and regulations that broaden field of membership definitions for federally insured credit unions. The agency announced that, as a result, more Americans will become eligible for credit union products and services effective Feb. 6, 2017.The change had the added benefit of re-naming NCUA’s consumer office to clarify its function and role in promoting consumer access to affordable financial services. NCUA Acting Chairman and prior Board Member J. Mark McWatters noted that the change would enhance consumer access to credit by sensibly and reasonably updating NCUA’s rules.” He further noted that the “… field-of-membership final rule is consistent with both the letter and spirit of the law.”The shift was one of the biggest regulatory moves for credit unions of 2016. Banks and other large financial institutions see it as a threat because it could have a substantial positive impact on credit union membership growth. Opponents of the change have threatened lawsuits challenging credit unions’ not-for-profit status. 12SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Indonesia’s GDP to grow 4.8% this year as COVID-19 shakes economy: Fitch Solutions

first_imgFitch Solutions expected Indonesia’s fiscal deficit to widen to 2.8 percent of GDP from the previous forecast of 2.5 percent, as the government is expected to cut spending later this year to keep the deficit within the constitutional limit of 3 percent.“We have also revised up our forecast for Indonesia’s current account deficit from 2.6 percent to 3.0 percent of GDP for 2020,” it wrote. “However, we believe the current account situation could worsen with financial market stress rising on a daily basis.”Fitch Solutions noted that Indonesia was set to record its worst quarter in terms of portfolio income outflows since the 1998 Asian financial crisis when foreign investors pulled close to US$8 billion out of the country. Investors have pulled out almost $2.8 billion from Indonesia’s bond markets so far this year, it added. Foreign investors dumped around $547.9 million in Indonesian stocks during the period, Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) data show.“All of this has placed significant stress on the Indonesian rupiah,” Fitch said.The rupiah continued its deep depreciation and reached Rp 15,712 per US dollar, according to the Bank Indonesia Jakarta Interspot Dollar Rate (JISDOR). The last time it touched this level was in June 1998 when it reached Rp 16,650 after widespread rioting that led to the downfall of president Soeharto, who led Indonesia for 32 years.Read also: ‘Desperate times, desperate measures’: Calls grow for flexible state budget amid virus“The rupiah sell-off will likely limit BI’s ability to support the economy through further monetary easing,” Fitch Solutions said. “Although BI has launched several lines of defence to protect the currency, including limiting short-selling in the stock market, intervening in the currency market and purchasing up to Rp 130 trillion worth of government securities, we expect the central bank to increasingly struggle to defend the currency.”“With the number of cases reported in Indonesia surging, investors will remain nervous about the archipelago’s ability to contain the virus,” it added.Indonesia has announced 227 confirmed COVID-19 cases, with 19 deaths. Globally, the pneumonia-like illness has infected nearly 202,000 people and taken at least 8,000 lives.Topics : Fitch Solutions has revised down Indonesia’s economic growth forecast this year as the COVID-19 pandemic places a heavy burden on the state budget and current account and limits Bank Indonesia’s monetary space to support the weakening rupiah.The novel coronavirus outbreak will weigh down private spending and weaken the external sector amid disruptions to the trade of goods and services, Fitch Solutions wrote, while the drop in global oil prices could limit the government’s ability to provide a substantial stimulus to bolster the economy.According to the latest available data, 13 percent of the government’s revenue comes directly from the commodities sector, Fitch Solutions wrote. Meanwhile, household spending contributes to more than a half of the country’s gross domestic product (GDP). “We at Fitch Solutions have revised down our real GDP growth forecast for Indonesia to 4.8 percent in 2020 from 5.1 percent,” Fitch said in a research note on Wednesday.Read also: Indonesia records $4b budget deficit in February as big-check stimulus spending loomsIndonesia’s economy expanded 5.02 percent last year, down from 5.17 percent in 2018. Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati projected on Wednesday that the country’s economic growth might drop to 4.5 to 4.9 percent in the first quarter, with potential to further plunge in the second quarter, amid weakening economic activities caused by the spread of the novel coronavirus.The government has announced two stimulus packages worth trillions of rupiah to cushion the economy and support people’s purchasing power. It is preparing a third stimulus package that will fund the healthcare system.last_img read more

first_imgMuhadjir explained that the premarital classes would education couples on reproduction, family financial planning and building a household.“Hopefully, the program can create families with a healthy young generation, as well as economically stable families,” he said.He further said the role of mass organizations and education institution that focused on women affairs would play a significant role in the success of the program.“If the premarital classes can be carried out properly, I believe that new families can develop well,” the minister added. (vny)Topics : His ministry announced the program last year for would-be married couples, in which they would be required to attend three months of classes to get a certificate needed to apply for a marriage license.The program is aimed at creating excellent future generations and lowering the stunting rate in Indonesia.

Indonesia considers mandatory premarital class for couples in 2020The ministry planned to implement the classes this year, but he said it had been put on hold due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Women are the main target of the government’s premarital programs for future brides and grooms as the women are expected to be the homemakers that give birth and nurture the country’s future generation that is free from stunting, a senior minister said on Monday.Education on raising children must start early on, not only when women are about to get married, Coordinating Human Development and Culture Minister Muhadjir Effendy said.“We need to prepare future homemakers who are truly ready. Because women are the ones who become housewives that will pay attention to children. So educating women from when they are teenagers until they are set to embark on marriage is really important,” he said as quoted by kompas.com on Monday.last_img read more
