SHARE In a conference call with reporters on Wednesday, Secretary Sonny Perdue said USDA is working on a plan to allocate relief funds to farmers.Perdue said the $14 billion allocated to the Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC), “would come later,” not specifying an exact date since the CCC currently has only $6 billion in borrowing authority.The CCC can borrow $30 billion per fiscal year, and with $6 billion left in the coffer, it appears that $24 billion has already been allocated. According to the USDA, the additional $14 billion authorized by the CARES Act can’t be used until July.USDA is working to implement a plan that would allocate $9.5 billion in emergency relief fund that was designated to Secretary Perdue’s office.Perdue says USDA is holding daily meetings on the COVID-19 relief package for agriculture, including meeting with lawmakers. He added that he is hopeful a plan will be announced “sooner rather than later,” while cautioning that the process of federal rulemaking takes time.

Yes, yes it would. What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Just a bit of fun while we wait for the official news of the Verizon iPhone, expected to arrive at this morning’s press event in New York City, hosted by Verizon Wireless. It appears that Verizon’s official Twitter account (@Verizon) has been tweeting from an iPhone, even before the phone’s existence on that network was confirmed.Of course, a number of publications picked up on this, suspecting it was a hint about today’s news. But last night, the tweet in question disappeared…which actually seems more of a confirmation that the original tweet ever did.The tweet was first spotted by journalist Rich DeMuro, and was later blogged about by theiPhoneSpot.com, Business Insider and TechCrunch, to name a few. The text of the tweet itself was not notable – it referred to Verizon’s home monitoring/control service, a new product introduced at last week’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas (CES 2011).But the source of the tweet was interesting: “Twitter for iPhone.” Was this a sneaky, subtle hint about today’s news? Or was the person in charge of the Verizon Twitter account actually using an AT&T iPhone?

Did Verizon pull it down? Apparently. And a Verizon PR isn’t saying why.I think we know.Google still has the tweet in its cache [email protected], Such a TeaseIn the meantime, if you’re looking for interesting tweets, @VerizonWireless has been a tease for days, tweeting yesterday: “Getting ready to make news on Tuesday,” and now this morning asking a follower “if we said what the Verizon event Tuesday is going to be about – would it still be news?” Related Posts Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Tags:#Apple#mobile#news#web sarah perez
Hundreds of farmers will march to Kisan Ghat in Delhi on Saturday after talks between members of the Bhartiya Kisan Sangathan (BKS) and representatives of the Agriculture Ministery failed in Noida. Holding the BJP governments at the Centre and the State responsible for the poor state of the farm sector, the BKS had made 15 demands which include complete loan waiver, immediate payment of sugarcane crop dues, making electricity used in farming free and pension for aged farmers. The farmers also demanded that the cow maintenance fee set by the U.P. government at ₹30 per day should be increased to ₹300 per day.“We thought the Chief Minister of the State knew everything about cows and their maintenance. We want to tell him that if he is spending ₹30 per day on his cow, we are ready to accept ₹25,” said Pooran Singh, national president of BKS.He asked when Tikaula Mill in Muzaffarnagar could pay the sugarcane dues to the farmers, why can’t others. “There are many sugar mills which have paid only 35% of the existing dues,” he claimed. When reminded that tractor and trolleys are not allowed in the national capital, according to a Supreme Court order, Mr. Singh said: “The Supreme Court has also said that the sugarcane dues should be paid within 14 days. Is anybody listening.”Power price hikeOn the issue of rise in electricity rates, Mr. Singh said when a farmer had no right on fixing the minimum support price of crops why should he pay for the electricity used in growing those crops. “It is the government that decides the price, so it should pay for the electricity.” S.S. Tomar, a director in the Agriculture Ministry, and D.K. Pandey, adviser in the Agriculture Ministry, listened to the demands and found them genuine. They asked for 21 days to put them before the authorities concerned but the BKS leadership felt that it was just a way to buy time. “These are not demands, they are our rights, most of which were there in the BJP manifesto. We are not here to give a memorandum. We could have done it in Saharanpur. The government should have sent people who have the authority to take action on our demands,” said Mr. Singh, who started the Kisan Mazdoor Adhikar Yatra from Saharanpur on September 11.He added that if the government didn’t take them seriously it would have to face the wrath of the farmers in the upcoming Assembly polls in three States and by-polls in Uttar Pradesh. “You could not get our vote only in the name of Ram temple and nationalism,” Mr. Singh said. “If the farmer, soldier, and labour of the country go on even a three-day leave, the nation will cease to function.” Law and order problemThe Noida police were still working with the Delhi police and district administration to resolve the stalemate. “We are still trying to convince the farmers but are not taking any chances in terms of law and order. We have no problem if they march peacefully to Delhi. The problem arises when they try to take their tractor-trolley along or camp on the road,” said Vineet Jaiswal, SP (City), Noida.
Man Utd academy chief Butt reveals loan plans for youngstersby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United academy chief Nicky Butt has revealed plans to release several of their youth teamers for loan next month.Butt, expects some members of his Under-19 squad to depart on loan during the January transfer window, despite the promise of playing knockout games in the UEFA Youth League in March. He said of the forthcoming loan market, “It will affect the Under-19s [as a team]. But if you ask any Manchester United fan or Ed [Woodward] or the owners or the manager, they want players in the first team. That’s my job. That’s the job of the Academy coaches – to get players in the first team. If you can win competitions as well, that’s the best thing you can do.”Is it good to have some players just waiting for an Under-19s game to come along? No. So we are looking to get players out on loan to develop them so they come back better players and better people for our club, with a real chance on playing on the biggest stage in the world.”Butt continued: “We see January as a changeover of the guard if you like. “A lot more players will be pushing up to the Reserves and the youth team will be made up more regularly of first-year scholars.“They will be starting more regularly in the youth team and players will be going out on loan. But, yeah, we plan – we don’t just pick it out of the air.””“We make plans for a year, 18 months or two years for players and we believe it’s the right way to do things.” TagsTransfersLoan MarketAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

Clemson Football Coach Dabo Swinney Also Believes Notre Dame Should Be In A Conference To Be Playoff Eligible
Dabo Swinney WhipAs we make it through college football media days and the various ESPN “car washes” that follow, Notre Dame’s independent status has become a hot topic of conversation once again. Last week, Missouri’s Gary Pinkel argued that the Fighting Irish should be forced into joining a league within a year. Clemson’s Dabo Swinney agrees: either Notre Dame should join a league with a conference championship, or adopt a 13 game schedule.Dabo Swinney agrees w/Gary Pinkel: “Absolutely Notre Dame needs to be in conference or play 13 games to be in @CFBPlayoff“— Brett McMurphy (@McMurphyESPN) July 27, 2015Swinney’s not the only high-profile ACC coach to think this.Paul Johnson: “Notre Dame should be in the ACC. It’s another brand program to strengthen the conference.”— Joe Schad (@schadjoe) July 27, 2015The ACC obviously has a lot to gain from Notre Dame, if it ever committed fully to joining a conference. With the current scheduling arrangement between the Fighting Irish and the league, the ACC is currently the most logical landing spot for Notre Dame football. Adding Notre Dame would be a big boost to the ACC football brand, which lags behind the other power conferences when it comes to perceived strength.
