first_imgBy Claudio KatzKatz is an economist and a professor at the University of Buenos Aires. His website is lahaine.org/katz. Published with his permission. Translation by John Catalinotto.March 13 — The global economic crisis is deepening at a rate as dizzying as the pandemic. The reduction in the economic growth rate and the sudden slowdown in the Chinese production system are now behind us. Now the price of oil has collapsed, the stock markets have collapsed and panic has set in in the financial world.Many suggest that economic performance, which was acceptable, was abruptly altered by the coronavirus. They also predict that the pandemic may cause a recurrence of a collapse similar to that of 2008. But on that occasion the guilt of bankers, the greed of speculators and the effects of neoliberal deregulation were immediately visible. Now the only thing being discussed is the origin and consequences of a virus, as if the economy were another patient affected by the earthquake in health.Coronavirus triggered pre-existing imbalancesIn reality, the coronavirus triggered the pre-existing strong tensions in the markets and the enormous imbalances accumulated by contemporary capitalism. It accentuated a slowdown in the economy that had already weakened Europe and was plaguing the United States.The chasm between that slowdown and the continued euphoria of the stock markets foreshadowed the bursting of the typical bubble, which periodically inflates and punctures Wall Street. The coronavirus has precipitated this collapse, which is not due to any unforeseen illness. It only repeats the well-known pathology of financialization.Unlike the 2008 bubble, the new one is not located in the indebtedness of families or in the fragility of banks. It is concentrated in the liabilities of large companies (corporate debt) and in the obligations of many governments (sovereign debt). In addition, there are serious suspicions about the health of investment funds, which have increased their preponderance in the purchase and sale of bonds.The capitalist economy generates these quakes, and no vaccine can ease the upheavals unleashed by the capitalists’ greed for profit. But the misery, unemployment and popular suffering caused by these earthquakes have now been obscured by the terror of the pandemic.Overproduction of oilThe fall in oil prices also preceded the health tsunami. Two major producers (Russia and Saudi Arabia) and a major player (the United States) dispute the setting of the benchmark price of fuel. This rivalry ruptured the institution that had contained the devaluation of crude oil (OPEC plus 10).The overproduction that precipitates this cheapening of oil is another underlying imbalance. The surplus of goods — which extends to both commodities and raw materials — is the cause of the great battle between the United States and China.The two main determinants of the current crisis — financialization and overproduction — affect all corporations, which have either papered the markets with securities or gone into debt in order to raise surplus production they are unable to sell. The coronavirus is totally unaware of these imbalances, but its appearance lit the fuse of an arsenal saturated with goods and money.Several specialists have also highlighted how the capitalist transformations of the last four decades have affected the magnitude of the pandemic.They note that previous contaminations — separated by long periods of time — are now breaking out more frequently. This happened with SARS (2002-03), H1N1 swine flu (2009), MERS (2012), Ebola (2014-16), zika (2015) and dengue (2016).Effect of globalizationThe connection of these outbreaks with urbanization is very visible. The overcrowding of the population and its forced proximity multiplies the spread of the germs.The effect of globalization is also evident, with an exponential increase in the number of travelers and the consequent spread of contagion to all corners of the globe. The way in which the coronavirus has caused the collapse of aviation, tourism and cruise ships in just a few weeks paints a striking portrait of that impact.Capitalism has globalized many lucrative activities in a dizzying way, without extending this remodeling of the borders to the health system. On the contrary, privatization and fiscal adjustments have strengthened the lack of protection in all countries against diseases that are globalizing with unusual speed.Some scholars also recall that several research programs to learn about and prevent new viruses dropped studying SARS. What prevailed were the interests of the pharmaceutical conglomerates, which gave priority to medicines for patients who could pay for them. A pathetic example of this primacy of profit was seen in the United States at the beginning of the pandemic — charging for the coronavirus test. This lack of free testing reduced awareness of cases at a key time for diagnosis.Other experts highlight how the habitat of many wild species has been destroyed in order to drive the industrialization of agriculture. Such environmental devastation has created the conditions for accelerated mutation or the manufacture of new viruses.China has been an epicentre of these changes. In no other country has urbanization converged so rapidly, with integration into global chains of production and the adoption of new food standards.In the cream of the establishment, the coronavirus has already recreated the same fear that plagued all governments during the financial collapse of 2008. That is why the response is being repeated and why the relief of large companies is being prioritized. But there are many doubts about the current efficacy of that script.Governments are trying to counteract the collapse of the level of activity with lower interest rates. But the cost of money is already at a low level, which makes the reactivating effect of the new lowering of interest rates uncertain. The same unknowns generate the massive injection of money and the reduction of taxes.U.S. tries to restore hegemonyThe dollar and U.S. treasury bonds have once again become the main refuge of capital, which seeks protection from the crisis. But the leading power, the United States, is currently commanded by a brutal president, who will use those resources for the imperial project of restoring U.S. hegemony over its rivals.For that reason, unlike in 2008, a total lack of coordination prevails in the face of the collapse that hovers over the economy. The cooperation exhibited by the G20 has been replaced by the unilateral decisions taken by the respective powers. A defensive principle has been imposed: Save yourself at the expense of your neighbor.Not only does the United States decide measures without consulting Europe (the suspension of flights, for example), but the countries of the old continent act on their own, ignoring their membership in a common association. All the consequences of a globalization of the economy — within the old framework of the national states — are surfacing in the current quake. No one knows how capitalism will deal with this scenario.The terrible consequences of the crisis for the Latin American economy are clear to see. The collapse of commodity prices is complemented by massive capital outflows and large currency devaluations in Brazil, Chile or Mexico. The collapse of Argentina is beginning to turn into a mirror of hardship for the entire region.It is evident that the coronavirus will hit the most impoverished and produce unimaginable tragedies, if it reaches countries with nonexistent, deteriorated or demolished health systems. Due to the high contagiousness of the pandemic and its strong impact on the elderly, the hospital structure already flounders in advanced economies.At the debut of the coronavirus, questions about the behavior of various governments multiplied. There were strong indications of irresponsibility, concealment of data or delays in taking preventive steps — in order to not affect business. But the drastic reaction that followed began to resemble the imposition of a war economy. This shift has been influenced by the contagion suffered by several members of the elite of ministers, managers and entertainment figures.The media also oscillate between hiding the problems and stimulating collective terror. Some use this fear to spread racism, harassment of China or denigration of immigrants. But everyone blames the coronavirus for the crisis, as if capitalism had nothing to do with the ongoing turmoil.The powerful are looking for scapegoats to exonerate themselves from the dramas they originate, promote or mask. The coronavirus is the great danger of the moment, but capitalism is the enduring disease of today’s society.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter By Hoosier Ag Today – Dec 10, 2020 Audio Playerhttps://hoosieragtoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/taranis-westfield-wrap.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Israel-based Taranis, a precision scouting and agricultural intelligence company, announced plans today to locate its global headquarters in Westfield, creating up to 60 new, high-wage jobs by the end of 2023. The new headquarters will help grow Taranis’ presence in the Midwest and enhance customers’ accessibility to the company’s state-of-the-art agriculture technology solutions.“Taranis’ new headquarters is a welcome addition to the Hoosier state as we continue to grow our thriving tech presence,” said Governor Eric J. Holcomb. “This investment will further strengthen our position as a top agricultural producing state and help attract a large, diverse talent pool for the future. I couldn’t be more grateful Taranis has chosen Indiana to call home.”Taranis, which empowers growers to make informed and timely replant, crop nutrition and protection decisions that optimize yields through precision scouting, is investing nearly $10.5 million to lease and equip its new 6,000-square-foot facility at 725 E. Main St. in Westfield. The facility will allow the company to significantly expand its team of agronomists and associates while increasing its total acreage serviced. The company’s location in Tel-Aviv, Israel, will continue to operate as its Innovation Center.By utilizing drone fleets capable of capturing high-resolution imagery, Taranis’ proprietary software platform analyzes images and aggregates data to deliver real-time insights during each growth stage at a leaf-level resolution 20 times faster than the manual alternative. The images are tagged and evaluated by Taranis’ artificial intelligence platform, which delivers the insights to users through the company’s comprehensive CONNECT mobile platform. With Taranis’ agronomic solutions, growers and their advisors can detect early symptoms of uneven emergence, nutrient deficiencies, weeds, crop diseases, insects or water stress almost immediately.“Locating our global headquarters in the heart of the America’s largest commodity crop production region enables us to interact more directly with our customers to better address the agronomic challenges of their growers,” said Mike DiPaola, general manager of North America and vice president of global sales at Taranis. “This exciting chapter for Taranis positions us well for growing our customer base and recruiting employee talent, while also allowing us to entrench ourselves in the area as the undisputed leader in precision scouting.”Taranis, which currently employs more than 80 people across the U.S., Latin America, Eastern Europe, Australia and the Middle East, plans to consolidate its sales, marketing and administrative functions at the new Westfield facility and continue to significantly expand its workforce during the first year of operation. The company is hiring for positions in drone and aviation operations, customer success, marketing and sales and has already hired seven toward its goal. Interested applicants may apply online.“The addition of Taranis to our community further enhances our influence in the region as an attractive location for businesses and job seekers,” said Westfield Mayor Andy Cook. “Its emergence as a leader in precision scouting coupled with our commitment to advancing agricultural innovation in our region makes this ideal and exciting partnership.”The Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC) partners with industry organizations like AgriNovus Indiana, the state’s initiative dedicated to promoting and accelerating the growth of the agbiosciences community, in order to target business recruitment in high-skilled, high-growth sectors. AgriNovus works to cultivate business development needs within the agriculture sectors, helping recruit organizations like Taranis to expand or locate in Indiana.“We met Taranis on Governor Holcomb’s 2018 economic development trip to Israel and quickly identified Indiana as the ideal place for the company to grow in North America,” said Mitch Frazier, president and chief executive officer of AgriNovus. “Taranis’ investment is the latest validation of Indiana’s ability to compete and win in the global agbioscience economy for high-tech, high-growth companies that will shape the future of food and agriculture.”The IEDC offered Taranis Inc. up to $1.25 million in conditional tax credits based on the company’s high-wage job creation plans. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning the company is eligible to claim incentives once Hoosiers are hired. The city of Westfield supports the project.Source: Indiana Economic Development Corporation Press Release Previous articlePurdue Faculty Provide Insight on Critical Issues Facing Farmers in 2021Next articleResearch and Development Leading to Great Choices and Yields Hoosier Ag Today SHARE Israeli AgTech Precision Scouting Company Chooses Central Indiana for Global HQ, 60 High-Wage Jobs Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Israeli AgTech Precision Scouting Company Chooses Central Indiana for Global HQ, 60…last_img read more

first_img Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 Organisation Help by sharing this information June 28, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Islamic Republic internationalizes crackdown on dissent RSF_en News IranMiddle East – North Africa Reporters Without Borders firmly condemns the practice of detaining the relatives of foreign-based netizens as hostages and harassing the families of journalists who work for foreign media. It also deplores the fact that around 10 bloggers and netizens have been arrested since 21 May in Tehran, Mashhad, Hamadan and other cities for “insulting Islam.”Cyber-police in Hamadan said the editor of a social network page “insulting Islam and the Shiite imams” was tracked down and arrested on 25 June. Reporters Without Borders is not yet able to confirm the exact number and identity of all those who have been arrested on similar charges in the past few days.Kalameh, a website that supports Iran’s reformists, reports: “The wave of arrests of netizens in Iran began at the end of May. Most of the victims are students. Intelligence officers are pressuring their families to say nothing and to not get in touch with the media.”According to the information obtained by Reporters Without Borders, the Organized Crime Surveillance Centre, an agency created by the Revolutionary Guards, has played an active role in identifying and arresting the netizens. Those arrested are currently being held in Tehran’s Evin prison, where they have been placed in isolation cells in Section 240 (controlled by the Revolutionary Guards) or in Section 209 (controlled by the intelligence ministry).Yashar Khameneh, an Iranian student based in Europe, wrote in his blog on 26 June: “My father, Abbas Khameneh, has been a hostage of the intelligence ministry for the past five weeks. No charge has been brought against him, and he has not been allowed to speak to a lawyer or receive visits. He was arrested because he is my father.“A few days after his arrest, they threatened to execute him if I did not send them a video in which I said I was sorry for what I had written. I did this, but they still have not released my father and now they are demanding all the information about my email and Facebook accounts, closure of the ‘International Campaign for Imam Naghi’ (a satirical Facebook page about the tenth of the 12 Shiite Imams) and my return to Iran.”This is not the first time that the regime has threatened the families of journalists based abroad or has used intimidation as a way of imposing its law on the media. Steven W. Korn, the head of Prague-based Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty, and Arman Mostofi, the head of Radio Farda (Radio Free Europe’s Persian section), reported on 12 June that threats to the families of foreign-based journalists working for Radio Farda have intensified in the past year.Peter Horrocks, the head of global news at the BBC, reported last October that relatives of Iranians who work in London for BBC Persian Television had been harassed by the Iranian authorities following the broadcast of a documentary about the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. He said they were summoned for questioning, passports were confiscated and some were banned from leaving the country.A woman journalist employed by BBC Persian Television even had to agree to be interrogated via an Internet connection after her sister was arrested by the intelligence ministry.“Steeped in corruption and tyranny, Iran’s theocracy is closing the door on freedom of opinion and expression by manipulating religion and by repeatedly using the charge of ‘insulting Islam’ in order to suppress any debate,” Reporters Without Borders said.The organization is deeply shocked by the low and underhand methods that the regime uses to put pressure on its critics in the media and online, both in Iran and abroad. Those who are forced to flee abroad to escape the Islamic Republic’s indiscriminate repression are not safe even when they find refuge in countries that respect freedom of expression.“The international community must react,” Reporters Without Borders added. “We urge United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay to condemn these arbitrary abductions and this harassment of the relatives of dissidents as crimes by the Iranian state.” February 25, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts After Hengameh Shahidi’s pardon, RSF asks Supreme Leader to free all imprisoned journalistscenter_img News IranMiddle East – North Africa News Follow the news on Iran March 18, 2021 Find out more Call for Iranian New Year pardons for Iran’s 21 imprisoned journalists to go further News June 9, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

first_imgNews May 11, 2018 Bulgarian investigative reporter attacked in provincial town BulgariaEurope – Central Asia Protecting journalists CorruptionConflicts of interestViolence RSF and 60 other organisations call for an EU anti-SLAPP directive to go further Reporters Without Borders condemns yesterday’s attack on Hristo Geshov, aninvestigative reporter based in the town of Cherven Bryag in northwestern Bulgaria.Already the target of death threats in connection with his coverage of alleged corruption inthe town, Geshov was attacked and beaten outside his home. News “I attribute this attack entirely to my investigative reporting and to the warnings I sent to the authorities about the management of finances by the Cherven Bryag municipal government,” Geshov wrote in a Facebook post a few hours after being beaten in the stomach and back by an unidentified assailant. “Despite the pain and many bruises, I am sure that I will not abandon my work, and the attack against me is a sign that I am right,” he added. Geshov writes for the regional investigative reporting website Za Istinata, works with the journalistic online platform “About the Truth” and hosts a programme called “On Target” that is available on YouTube. He began being harassed after a series of articles about municipal government irregularities in Cherven Bryag in which he claimed, inter alia, that three municipal councillors were using European Union funds to renovate their homes. Public awareness of Geshov was enhanced by a recent report about his work in which he mentioned all the harassment to which both he and his family have been subjected since his revelations about alleged embezzlement of public funds in Cherven Bryag. “This attack is indicative of the degree to which investigative reporters are now being targeted by groups that want to silence them and impose terror,” said Pauline Adès-Mével, the head of RSF’s EU-Balkans desk. “We hail the swift reaction of the police and medical services, but the Bulgarian authorities must also provide physical protection to journalists who, like Hristo Geshov, are the targets of threats of this kind.” Attacks on journalists have escalated in recent months in Bulgaria, which currently holds the EU’s rotating presidency.

first_img Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Another Intergenerational Worship Service, really? We are starting to gather more often across the generations as a church family. You may be thinking, “why are we doing this?” While I could write a book about why this is important (and many have been), I think it boils down to: we need one another to follow Jesus.We have forgotten this in recent years because of our well intentioned ministry philosophy to gather mostly by age. Yet, we read in the Scriptures that we need one another and have a responsibility to be with one another for our own spiritual growth. Psalm 78:4 says, “we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done”. The older generation was instructed to convey the message of God to the younger generation. This goes both ways because Jesus says in Mark 10:15 , “I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the Kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it”. There is also a role for our younger family members to play in our older family members’ lives. As much as we are to teach them; they also teach us! We need one another as we pursue Christ.We cannot teach one another if we don’t know one another. We can’t know one another if we are not around one another. This is why we gather like we are this weekend. We feel God is leading us to be around each other more often, to worship in song together, to fellowship together, and to hear God’s Word together. My prayer is that as we break routine this morning, that each of us will sense and experience God in a new and powerful way as we gather intergenerationally.Lake Avenue Church, 393 North Lake Avenue Pasadena, (626) 844-4700 or visit www.lakeave.org. faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyCitizen Service CenterPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Herbeauty6 Trends To Look Like An Eye-Candy And 6 To Forget AboutHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyHe Is Totally In Love With You If He Does These 7 ThingsHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty10 Of The Most Notorious Female Spies In HistoryHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyA Mental Health Chatbot Which Helps People With DepressionHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThis Is What Happens To Your Face After DermaplaningHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyRed Meat Is Dangerous And Here Is The ProofHerbeautyHerbeauty Top of the News Business News Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.
