Members of the Cricket Committee had interacted with Pandit before his appointment,” MPCA secretary Sanjeev Rao said in a media release.“The statement (of the Cricket Committee) is completely devoid of facts and is hence causing deep dent to the reputation of Chandrakant Pandit, as also MPCA.“Hence, after such elaborate consultation before the appointment of Pandit, it is a mystery as to why the Cricket Committee has only recently started withdrawing from their committed stance,” the secretary said.The secretary also lashed out at the Cricket Committee members saying, “repeated efforts are being made to suggest that the office bearers of MPCA are encroaching onto the functions of the Cricket Committee, which is not only baseless but also mischievous and aimed at vitiating the atmosphere.”“While the MPCA is working to improve cricket, the working conditions of coaches, assistant coaches and others, some vested interests with nefarious designs are trying to play dirty politics with an aim to harm cricket in MP. MPCA will not allow this at any cost,” the said.Pandit is one of the most successful domestic coaches in India.

A fascinating place for its microclimate, fauna, flora and a privileged view of the Cumbayá Valley. The carob trees are the endemic trees of the sector and are everywhere; attracting an infinity of birds, that with their song, make anyone feel part of nature, a few minutes from the city.

It sits across the steepest part of the slope, drawing a 38-metre-long horizontal line that acts as a counterpoint to the landscape.

One faces the lake, acting as a sort of balcony that opens up towards the landscape, 6 metres above the ravine, placing the user at the height of the tree canopy.

However, the great news is that we now have over 2,000 charity shops registered to use our free service and we are looking forward to working with them once again when shops reopen. We also have several trials ready to launch with national charities in the forthcoming months. I feel confident that, before too long, we will be celebrating 3,000 shops and even more, as charities recognise the need to replace as much lost income as possible through easy, accessible means.”British Red Cross is one of the charities recently signed up to trial the service once its shops reopen. Alexandra Ehlen, British Red Cross stock generation and gift aid manager, added:“We have recently decided to start using Vintage Cash Cow as another way to raise money from items that cannot be sold in British Red Cross shops, helping to further reduce the number of broken pre-loved items that may otherwise end up in landfill. Money raised will support our life-changing work to support people in crisis. Vintage Cash Cow has been really informative and supportive in getting our shops set-up ready to start sending in boxes of items once they have reopened. We are looking forward to working with them on this initiative.” Vintage Cash Cow for Charities, a free service that helps charities turn their unsold and non-saleable donations into income for their cause, now has over 2,000 charities registered.The service accepts a wide variety of items from jewellery, watches and small clocks, cameras and accessories, to pre-decimal and foreign currency, medals, militaria, and toys, in any condition, even broken, damaged or with missing parts, and repurposes and rehomes all the items that are purchased.Since Vintage Cash Cow launched its charity shops’ service, it has bought over £200,000 of unsold and non-saleable donations. It also has a metal price promise, which pays a guaranteed minimum of £1per kilo for non-precious scrap metals such as brass, pewter, copper and silver plate.Charity shops wanting to find out more can fill in a contact form on the website and they will receive a phone call to answer any questions about the service. Shops receive a welcome email and have a charity pack posted out to them, which includes a product brochure, posters and flashcards, showing which items can and can’t be accepted.

Home Indiana Agriculture News Indiana Corn Legislative Agenda Announced By Andy Eubank – Dec 21, 2015 Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE Directors of the Indiana Corn Growers Association have laid out a 2016 state legislative agenda focused on local road funding, property tax reform, and tax fairness for E85 fuel. The ICGA Board approved the priorities this week ahead of the January start to the legislative session.Farmers are calling on the General Assembly to increase funding for local roads and bridges.“All across our state, local roads and bridges are crumbling,” said ICGA President Mike Nichols, a farmer from Spencer County. “The legislature needs to step up and improve the condition of local roads to help us move equipment, crops, livestock, and inputs to and from our farms.”Numerous proposals have been revealed ahead of the spring legislative session. While Corn Growers aren’t taking a position on any specific proposals yet, they are clear that local roads and bridges must be a priority.“The state can’t be solely focused on highways, cities, and towns,” said Nichols. “Roads benefit our entire economy, and farmers are focused on improving local infrastructure.”Corn farmers have also outlined a reform of the state’s farmland property tax formula as a 2016 priority. Rates have been driven up by over 33 percent in the past five years, and farmers are seeing increasing property tax bills while net farm income has fallen precipitously.“The formula for property taxes on farmland does not take real-world conditions into account,” said ICGA Vice President Sarah Delbecq, a farmer from DeKalb County. “We need a formula that accurately values farmland while not forcing drastic cuts to struggling local school districts.”Farmers have also made priorities relating to biofuels. ICGA supports a use tax change on E85 fuel that taxes the fuel more fairly and strengthens misfueling liability for retailers selling mid-level ethanol blends.To read all of ICGA’s public policy positions, visit www.incorn.org/icga.Source: ICGA Indiana Corn Legislative Agenda Announced Previous articleReport: Renewables Fastest Growing US Power SourceNext articleA Christmas Gift from Congress to American Farmers Andy Eubank

It focuses on leading during difficult times and investing in emerging leaders.President Trump has been adamant about building a wall between the border of the U.S. and Mexico to prevent illegal immigrants from entering the country. However, Fox said the idea to build a wall is “stupid.”“Why should we go now against migrants when we all are migrants?” Fox said.Fox comes from migrant families on his father and mother’s sides. He thinks there’s a better way to handle the issue of immigration.“We don’t need walls, we need bridges,” Fox said. “We need understanding each other, we need to listen and we don’t need to isolate.”He was joined at the forum by Rigoberta Menchú, 1992 Nobel Peace Prize winner. Menchú, a human rights activist, talked about how she stayed positive through hardships, including her mother’s kidnapping, torture and death.Fox, president of Mexico from 2000-2006, told the audience they were born to do great things in life and challenged them to do things to make others happy.The audience was filled with students, faculty and members of the TCU community who erupted with applause after each answer was given.

Twitter Pinterest Local NewsGovernment City plans attorney replacement Landgraf staffer resigns following investigation Facebook Larry Long, Odessa city attorney. WhatsApp Twitter Landgraf prepares for state budget debate 1 of 2 Pinterest Larry Long, Odessa city attorney. Two council members who serve on a personnel committee — District 3 Councilwoman Barbara Graff and District 5 Councilman Filiberto Gonzales — had recommended the approach.“We want to keep everything that’s been going moving forward, and if we have that void, if we have somebody doing it part time, I don’t think we would have that confidence in that department, so we wanted to make sure that we didn’t short change it,” Gonzales said.Gonzales and Graff had also dismissed the finding of an HR report on the sexual harassment complaint, filed by a female legal assistant to Long in the summer. She had accused Long of harassing her in ways such as touching her hair against her will and staring at her, behavior that HR corroborated.The July 24 HR report also pointed to behavior by Long such as sitting too close to her and calling his employees pet names. One of the authors of that report, HR Director Bonita Hall, who later resigned, also noted it was repeated behavior by Long from another sexual harassment case in 2007 that resulted in a month-long unpaid suspension.The three remaining council members said they were not provided the HR report for months. But Long was still never disciplined by the City Council as the report recommended.Instead, he announced his resignation on Nov. 28, telling reporters he wanted to work through his next birthday for better retirement benefits and because he has work he wanted to continue. Long has denied the allegations and repeatedly declined to discuss them.The City of Odessa has disclosed paying $23,300 to an outside law firm for work on the sexual harassment complaint but the total costs of resolving the sexual harassment case remain unclear as the city continues to fight the release of records showing any payment of taxpayer money as part of a settlement.On Tuesday, Graff and District 2 Councilman Dewey Bryant said they wanted the interim lawyer to start working with Long before his resignation takes effect on Feb. 28 to smooth the transition.Wells described the temporary appointment as offering “a breather: some time to consider your options” in appointing a permanent replacement. He said the firm specializes in municipal law and its attorneys have experience working as the city attorney for city’s including Waco and Tyler.Mayor David Turner said a job advertisement for the city attorney position should be posted in the coming weeks. The council is expected to consider approving the temporary arrangement on Tuesday. By admin – February 8, 2018 The Odessa City Council will consider hiring an outside law firm to fill in as the full-time city attorney after the retirement of Larry Long, who was allowed to retire at the end of this month following a sexual harassment complaint corroborated by the city’s human resources department.The city’s latest head of human resources, Darrell Wells, said the firm would charge the city about $225 per hour and an attorney would work in Odessa five days a week. Wells said that fee works out to about what the city pays Long, because it does not include benefits. Long’s annual salary is about $201,500.“In terms of cost, there’s really not that much difference,” Wells said during the City Council’s finance committee meeting on Tuesday. “Mr. Long is already handsomely paid.”Hiring an outside firm to handle the city’s routine legal work is not uncommon in Texas, Wells said. The firm would also manage staff of the city’s legal department.

No other information could be provided, according to a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement statement. A message to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in San Antonio seeking more details was not immediately returned Friday. Federal, state and local authorities in Texas have been searching for a tanker truck days after a 911 caller in the San Antonio area reported dozens of people were trapped inside it. The caller said Monday that there were an estimated 80 people inside the truck’s tank — typically used to haul liquids or gases that can be hazardous — and that they couldn’t breathe. “The investigation is still ongoing as agents are following up on leads to further the case and ensure the safety of the individuals,” the ICE statement said.
