Home Indiana Agriculture News EPA Rejects Gap-Year Waivers SHARE Growth Energy this week welcomed the Environmental Protection Agency’s decision to reject so-called ‘gap-year’ exemptions from the nation’s biofuel laws.In total, the agency had received 68 retroactive exemption requests from petroleum refiners seeking to skirt obligations under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) and the move Monday denies the majority of pending requests.“[Monday’s] action lifts a cloud of uncertainty that has been hanging over America’s farmers and biofuel producers since June,” said Emily Skor, CEO of Growth Energy.In the announcement, EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler stated, “This decision follows President Trump’s promise to promote domestic biofuel production. We are delivering on that promise by following the rule-of-law and ensuring 15 billion gallons are blended into the nation’s fuel supply.”Over the weekend, President Trump announced an executive order to allow E15 to be used in any pumps approved for E10, the national standard. The move should allow for more expansion of E15 in the market.

Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Print This Post Certifications Five Star Institute FSA industry Lenders mortgage real estate Servicing 2018-03-15 Radhika Ojha Home / Daily Dose / Facilitating Growth in a Changing Industry Landscape Facilitating Growth in a Changing Industry Landscape Continuous learning is a necessity for professionals in the servicing and mortgage industry. With this in mind, the Five Star Academy (FSA), a Five Star Institute brand, recently launched a learning platform with independent certification programs and courses written by experts from the housing and mortgage industry.“The objective of the Five Star Academy is to provide relevant, timely, and actionable education tailored for professionals of all levels servicing the mortgage industry. We expect these certifications to not only contribute to the careers of those who complete the coursework, but to the overall progress of the industry as a whole,” said Ed Delgado, President, and CEO of the Five Star Institute in a statement released recently.Covering a wide range of topics from regulatory compliance and legal practice to diversity and inclusion, and distressed asset disposition, these courses cover a wide range of topics in an easy-to-use online format.“FSA provides the latest instruction, presented by subject matter experts, in a manner that allows you to become certified while you simultaneously continue with your profession and with your personal life—it’s a no-brainer,” said Michelle Gilbert, Managing Partner, Gilbert Garcia Group.According to Clint Welser, VP, Laudan Properties, these courses are an excellent reference point for real estate and lending professionals who want to learn more about legal and regulatory topics.“As the real estate, banking, and servicing industries become increasingly more complex, it’s great to have the resources that the Five Star Academy provides at the ready. Certifications such as these, help set professionals apart from their peers about an ever-evolving industry,” Welser said.Each program contains eight courses, with each certification equivalent to 20 credit hours of relevant material. Currently, FSA offers three ways in which an individual can pursue a certification. They include independent coursework where professionals can pick and choose the courses most applicable to their business and then revisit or pursue other coursework as needed; obtaining a certification when they complete all courses within a program; and completing all certification courses to obtain a Master Certification from FSA.“These courses enable you to learn from top industry professionals about many things that you may need to be sharper on. Often, agents learn the most from other agents. Five Star Academy is a place where the entire industry can learn from each other and make that happen for all of us,” said Jim Hastings, Broker/Owner, Hastings Brokerage.To enroll or learn more about the courses offered by FSA, click here.

Comments are closed. A rise in the number of staff working from home could lead to difficultiesfor employers unless good HR policies are applied for remote workers. The number of employees working from home has increased by 65 per cent since2001, with 7.4 per cent of all staff now working remotely. These numbers looks set to rise further, with parents of young childrenafforded the right to request more flexible working conditions and the growthof work-life balance policies. The Department of Trade and Industry has issued guidelines to advisecompanies of their responsibilities towards home workers and legal experts havewarned that any slip-ups could prove costly for employers. Alan Lewis, employment partner at law firm George Davies, said technologyallows more people to consider working from home. “More than two millionpeople work away from the normal office and employers must ensure they complywith their obligations towards them. “Clear HR policies, disciplinary procedures, training and careerprogression must be in line with that of office-based staff. Teleworkers mustnot be excluded from these rights,” he said. Employers must ensure staff are safe by carrying out a risk assessment oftheir working conditions and ensuring all electrical equipment complies withsafety regulations.

Thinning ice in West Antarctica, resulting from acceleration in the flow of outlet glaciers, is at present contributing about 10% of the observed rise in global sea level. Pine Island Glacier in particular has shown nearly continuous acceleration and thinning, throughout the short observational record. The floating ice shelf that forms where the glacier reaches the coast has been thinning rapidly, driven by changes in ocean heat transport beneath it. As a result, the line that separates grounded and floating ice has retreated inland. These events have been postulated as the cause for the inland thinning and acceleration. Here we report evidence gathered by an autonomous underwater vehicle operating beneath the ice shelf that Pine Island Glacier was recently grounded on a transverse ridge in the sea floor. Warm sea water now flows through a widening gap above the submarine ridge, rapidly melting the thick ice of the newly formed upstream half of the ice shelf. The present evolution of Pine Island Glacier is thus part of a longer-term trend that has moved the downstream limit of grounded ice inland by 30 km, into water that is 300 m deeper than over the ridge crest. The pace and ultimate extent of such potentially unstable retreat are central to the debate over the possibility of widespread ice-sheet collapse triggered by climate change.
THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE SEVENTH CIRCUIT COURT RULING AGAINST EPD CHIEF BILLY BOLIN LACK OF INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY.ATTACHED BELOW IS AN INSERT OF THE JUDGES RULING AGAINST THE EPD POLICE CHIEGF BILLY BOLIN!Precipitate use of flash bangs to launch a search has troubled us before, leading us to declare that “the use of a flash bang grenade is reasonable only when there is a dangerous suspect and a dangerous entry point for the police, when the police have checked to see if innocent individuals are around before deploying the device, when the police have visually inspected the area where the device will be used and when the police carry a fire extinguisher.” Estate of Es- cobedo v. Bender, supra, 600 F.3d at 784–85. The police in this case flunked the test just quoted. True, they’d brought a fire extinguisher with them—but, as if in tribute to Mack Sennett’s Keystone Cops, they left it in their armored SWAT vechicle.So while the defendants are correct to point out that a reasonable mistake committed by police in the execution of a search is shielded from liability by the doctrine of qualified immunity, Anderson v. Creighton, 483 U.S. 635, 641 (1987), in this case the Evansville police committed too many mistakes to pass the test of reasonableness.

I did it for Halloween when I was little and I had the carpet bag and lipstick and fake British accent!” Well, he did at least recently get to use the accent, if not the rest, when he played King George III in off-Broadway’s Hamilton. No word yet on whether he’ll move with the musical to the Main Stem—fingers crossed he makes our dreams come true and returns to the Great White Way!OITNB’s Lea DeLaria to Host OBIEsOrange is the New Black star Lea DeLaria is set to emcee the 60th Annual OBIE Awards, which as previously reported will be held on May 18 at Webster Hall.
