COPE ENSURES AGREEMENT OF REFORM ON COMMON FISHERIES POLICY

first_imgPat the Cope Gallagher, a negotiator for the European Parliament on the Reform of the Common Fisheries Policy, has confirmed the European Parliament has reached a political agreement with the Irish Presidency on the Reform of the Common Fisheries Policy.The agreement was brokered at 3.30am this morning in the European Parliament in Brussels.Mr. Gallagher stated this morning “I can confirm that the negotiations have ended with a political agreement between the European Parliament and the Presidency on the Reform of the Common Fisheries Policy.” Mr. Gallagher said “I am disappointed by the failure of the Presidency to accept the proposal of the European Parliament to enshrine the Hague Preferences into the Reform.“Despite the fact of having the full support of my colleagues for the Hague Preferences, I did not want to be responsible for the breakdown of the negotiations, which could have delayed the Reform beyond the Irish Presidency. As such, I proposed a strengthened recital in a last ditch effort.“I am pleased that my suggestion was accepted, subject to a final agreement in Coreper in respect of the Hague Preferences. This will ensure that for the next ten years EU Fish Ministers must take full account of the Hague Preferences when allocating annual quotas.”Pat the Cope further stated he fully accepted the remainder of the Reform as it has incorporated many of the amendments tabled by him during our deliberations in the European Parliament. He added these significant changes include a strong request urging Member States to endeavour to provide additional quotas to vessels that fish in an environmentally sustainable manner, such as small scale vessels, recognition that existing biological sensitive areas should be continued, which includes the Irish Box and the establishment of greater regionalisation and bottom up decision making especially for technical and conservation measures.Pat the Cope concluded by stating “the attention will quickly turn to the implementation of the reform especially concerning the discard ban. This new policy will last for the next ten years and it must be implemented in a way that protects and develops the seafood industry in Ireland which employs over 12,000 people, in many coastal and small island communities throughout Ireland.“The introduction of the discard ban will only work in practice if the principles of avoidance and minimisation through more selective gear and incentives to encourage stakeholder compliance are adhered to.” COPE ENSURES AGREEMENT OF REFORM ON COMMON FISHERIES POLICY was last modified: May 30th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Common Fisheries PolicyPat The Cope Gallagherlast_img read more

Ohio’s ever-changing climate, and its impact on farmers

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Zach Parrott, OCJ field reporterMany farmers in the state have been struggling with incredibly wet conditions over the past couple of years driven by a changing climate. Both crop and livestock operations are having to make changes to adapt accordingly.Ohio State University College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences atmospheric scientist Aaron Wilson pointed out that over the past 60 years, moisture levels in Ohio have been on the rise. The increased moisture in the atmosphere has caused Ohio’s temperatures to also change. Ohio’s temperature has increased roughly 2 degrees overall. From 1986 to 2016, summers in Ohio have become increasingly cooler and the winters are warmer. These changes have significant impacts on the state’s ag sector, resulting in rising human and livestock stress levels, pollination decreases, lower productivity and quality, increased weed pressure, increase in disease, and a higher potential risk of crop failure.“When you have more moisture in the atmosphere it does three things,” Wilson said. “During the day it limits your heating — you’re likely to build clouds and temperatures stay down. At night it doesn’t allow the surface to cool. The energy that is radiated from the surface is absorbed from the water vapor and your atmosphere stays warmer. Finally, if you get more moisture in the atmosphere anytime a front or some type of disturbance moves through, it brings out heavy rainfall.”Precipitation in Ohio is up 10% to 15% in most areas. These precipitation trends are normally most active during non crop production seasons like spring and fall. From April to June, the frequency of precipitation is up 3% to 11%. In the 2018 crop season, Wilson said Ohio had a “normal spring.” However, the 2018 summer was the second wettest in Ohio history and the fall was the third wettest.The intensity of rain events is also on the rise. Across Ohio, downpours greater than 1.5 inches have nearly doubled since 1950. They’re now occurring four to five times per year, on average.“Since about the mid-1990s we see a greater frequency of 2 inches or more rainfall events as well,” Wilson said.Wilson said Ohio’s temperature is predicted to reach 90 degrees or higher between 20 and 40 days this year and there will be 30 to 40 fewer days where nights drop below freezing. Ohio’s precipitation is also predicted to increase over 2 inches this year.The excess rain this spring has left record setting numbers of prevented planting acres around Ohio. Hay supplies to feed livestock are also severely low in the state and across the Midwest because rain has delayed or prevented hay from being cut and excess moisture killed alfalfa stands.The Ohio wheat crop has also been negatively impacted. The soggy weather left poor stands and drowned-out holes in fields, according to Cheryl Turner, Ohio state statistician, U.S. Department of Agriculture National Agricultural Statistics Service Ohio Field Office.“Wheat conditions going into harvest are much worse than last year,” she said.Ohio’s farms also have to manage significant water flows on the surface of fields and underground. Tile management structures, ditch modification, buffer strips and French drains are some of the ways water is being managed in farm fields.“There are a lot of possible solutions for dealing with increasing rainfall,” Wilson said. “There’s no one perfect solution for all farms.”The changes are not just confined to Ohio. May 2018 to April 2019 was the wettest year on record nationwide, according to a report from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Centers for Environmental Information. An average of 36.20 inches of precipitation fell nationwide, which was 6.25 inches above the mean, the agency said.“The idea is to get people to start thinking about building resilience to the changes we see,” Wilson said.The summer outlook from the Climate Prediction Center of the National Weather Service suggests the wetter-than-normal weather will continue across much of the country, the USDA said.“Farmers are having to combat all of this,” Wilson said.last_img read more

9 Years Later, Liverpool Back in CL Quarters

first_imgLIVERPOOL, England (AP) — There’s a familiar name back in the quarterfinals of the Champions League.“It’s time we showed up again,” Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said after his team secured a place in the last eight for the first time in nine years.It couldn’t have been an easier passage for the five-time European champions, either, as they coasted to a 0-0 draw against Porto on Tuesday to clinch a 5-0 aggregate win in the last 16.Having scored five goals without reply in a dazzling first-leg display in Portugal three weeks ago, this was always going to be a procession for Liverpool at Anfield — a ground that has been something of a fortress this season.At times, it felt like the English club was going through the motions, especially since it faces a huge Premier League game against Manchester United in the Premier League on Saturday.No major injuries were sustained — captain Jordan Henderson had strapping applied to his right thigh after the game, but Klopp said it was nothing more than a dead leg — and Liverpool rarely looked like conceding.Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp talks with the fourth official, right, during the Champions League round of 16, second leg, soccer match between Liverpool and FC Porto at Anfield Stadium, Liverpool, England, Tuesday March 6, 2018. (AP Photo/Dave Thompson)Now, a member of European soccer’s royalty can look forward to the draw for the quarterfinals on March 16. They return as the competition’s top scorers this season with 28 goals and will be feared by the other qualifiers.“This year, we belong there,” Klopp said, “it should not be a surprise. There will be seven other very good teams — maybe four of them will be from England, which doesn’t make to easier, to be honest. But we have a chance, for sure, to go through to the semifinals.”Porto coach Sergio Conceicao was even more confident about Liverpool’s chances.“Liverpool are definitely one of the teams that can win the competition,” he said. “They are a really strong team, everyone knows that.”Also in the draw for the last 16 will be Real Madrid, which beat Paris Saint-Germain 2-1 away on Tuesday to clinch a 5-2 aggregate win in the marquee matchup in the round of 16.Cristiano Ronaldo was one of the scorers for Madrid, the Portugal forward netting for the ninth straight game in the Champions League. PSG’s wait to win Europe’s most-prized trophy goes on, despite the hundreds of millions of dollars spent since Qatar Sports Investments bought the French club in 2011.A year ago this week, Barcelona became the first team to overturn a 4-0 first-leg deficit in the Champions League knockout stage when beating PSG 6-1.Porto, the Portuguese league leader, had to go one better but Klopp’s decision to field a strong team rendered that unlikely scenario even more inconceivable. The joint-top scorer in the Premier League — Mo Salah — and world’s most expensive defender — Virgil van Dijk — were on the bench for Liverpool, but most of its other big names played.Liverpool’s Sadio Mane, right, attempts a shot at goal during the Champions League round of 16, second leg, soccer match between Liverpool and FC Porto at Anfield Stadium, Liverpool, England, Tuesday March 6, 2018. (AP Photo/Dave Thompson)And it was the hosts who had the better of the chances, with Sadio Mane — the scorer of a hat trick in the first leg — hooking a volley over the bar and then striking a low shot against the post in a low-key first half.Roberto Firmino ran clear but ended up having a shot blocked on the hour, before immediately being taken off by Klopp as Liverpool’s main striker was protected ahead of the United game.Porto pressed late on but to no avail, as it failed to collect a first away win over an English opponent in the Champions League at the 13th attempt. The visitors became the first team to stop Liverpool from scoring in this season’s competition, not that Klopp minded too much.“It feels good, to be honest,” he said. “It’s a long time. I know about it … It’s a good development at Liverpool at the moment. It’s a good moment.”—By STEVE DOUGLAS , AP Sports WriterTweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

OD-WATER-TOURISM

first_imgOdisha to replicate MP’s Jal Mahotsav at Hirakud damSambalpur (Odisha), Jun 22 (PTI) Odisha is planning toorganise an annual water festival at Hirakud dam in Sambalpurdistrict on the lines of the immensely popular “Jal Mahotsav”in Madhya Pradesh, a top tourism official said.The state tourism department and the districtadministration will jointly organise the festival every yearduring the tourist season, which starts from October, saidDirector of Tourism, N B Jawale.The tourists visiting the festival will get accessto facilities like water sports, water adventure activitiesand tent stay at the Hirakud Dam Reservoir, he said.”It will be water-centric festival.

Junior shooters can’t be marginalised

first_imgIndian shooting had plenty of highs in 2018, with medals won at World Cups, Asian Games, Commonwealth Games and the World Championship.As the race begins for more quota places to be won for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, there will be more clamour to compete in events abroad. Going by email exchanges among people in the National Rifle Association of India (NRAI), an impression has been created that juniors be treated as juniors and seniors get preferred for 2019.The NRAI has a fairly clear water-tight selection policy where a combination of best scores from trials to competitions is used to arrive at who makes the cut. This year has seen plenty of highs, which began at the CWG in Gold Coast and continued till the Asian Games.A few like Manu Bhaker and Anish Bhanwala did find it difficult to cope with pressure in the Asian Games, but that does not mean they should be considered just as “juniors” in 2019. The argument advocated is the basis of picking shooters and identifying them as probables for the next year should be capability and scores and not their age.This year, in many events, be it pistol, rifle, or even shotgun, “juniors” gave seniors a run for their money. Who gets looked at in the new year may seem far but the way the NRAI functions, they keep working, looking at the future.After coaches flagged the issue on how juniors should not be bracketed just on age alone, NRAI president Raninder Singh has intervened. In his email, he has written to all concerned, “our policy is clear, there is no junior and senior, its best foot forward. The interest of the country and omnipotence of merit is our undoubted goal and we shall continue to ensure just that.”advertisementMeanwhile, NRAI’s plan to hold one more trial for pistol and rifle in October after a busy year is being seen as counter-productive. For those who missed the bus in 2018, it may be a chance but for those who have kept peaking, one more trial can be killing.last_img read more

World Cup 2019: Pakistan lost but Pakistani Twitter had us in splits

first_imgIndian team on Sunday produced an all-round performance to thrash Pakistan by 89 runs at Old Trafford, Manchester in a much-hyped clash and extended their head to head record against the Asian rivals to a dominant 7-0 in the World Cups.In the marquee clash, India outperformed Pakistan in all the three departments to make the contest a one-sided affair.Put in to bat first, India opener Rohit Sharma scored his second hundred at the tournament, followed by captain Virat Kohli and KL Rahul smashed half-centuries each to help India post a mammoth 336 runs total as Pakistan never threatened to make a chase of it in the rain-interrupted game.An India vs Pakistan game is arguably the biggest cricket-rivalry because of the diplomatic tensions between the two countries and thus there was a lot of furor prior to the high-octane clash.Ahead of the highly anticipated World Cup clash, a video pupurportedly put out by Pakistani channel called Jazz TV, took the internet by storm as the ad featured a character impersonating wing commander Abhinandan, the Indian pilot captured Pakistan.On the other hand, in India, the famous ‘Mauka Mauka’ that went Viral during the 2015 World Cup made a comeback with a Father’s Day twist for June 16.However, after the high-intensity match between the two rivals, the fans rather came up with light-hearted jokes and took the Pakistan team’s defeat in a sporting manner.This guy speaks for the whole of Pakistan today pic.twitter.com/JReTKDdlhGAmmara Ahmad (@ammarawrites) June 16, 2019Indian Captain vs. Pakistani Captain #INDvPAK #PAKvIND pic.twitter.com/XWU08m1iHFadvertisementSam (@iamsam_PTI) June 15, 2019Agar hum apna saara budget world cup mein India per laga k double karlein toh Kya humari economy stable ho sakti hai?Garmi Mein Kharab (@fay_alif) June 16, 2019india tou humain aisi phainti laga raha hay jaise kohinoor hum nay churaya hoA h m e d (@Ahlvled_) June 16, 2019Bhai sahab khud aik Railu Katta hain!!#___ pic.twitter.com/SmwQB5ycmuAli Khan Pasha (@iamalipasha) June 16, 2019India wholeheartedly thanks Sania Mirza for taking the paki boys & her hubby out for party till 2AM b4 #INDvPAK match pic.twitter.com/g1gBK15hSDNewEnglandRa (@NewenglandRa) June 16, 2019#CWC19 #INDvPAK #TeamIndia pic.twitter.com/8EVML7Q5qRAYUSH RANJAN (@ark_ayushranjan) June 16, 2019Pak fans on Saturday: “rain go away, we want Pak to play”Sunday morning: “rain come back…”Rain: pic.twitter.com/drWs7CFYYS(@HaayeShabbir) June 16, 2019Also Seelast_img read more
