first_imgOn Friday, the USDA forecast the average price of corn for 2013 would be $7.40, a figure Darrel Good, economist with University of Illinois,  thinks is too high, “I don’t see any way we average $7.40 for the year. I think $7 is what we are going to average for the price of corn.” Good says that this summer corn stocks will be tight but, with the likelihood of a big corn crop, corn prices will fall, “I think we will start seeing some weakness in corn prices come June and July.” Corn and soybean futures moved sharply higher on Monday in part still reacting to Friday’s USDA report, but also reacting to some good export sales announced on Friday and again on Monday. Cody Bills from Grain Hedge said tight corn supplies are driving the market now, but demand will be the key in the long term, “The USDA reduction in corn carryover is spurring the market higher, but we will need to see demand to keep prices high.” Bills speculates that ethanol production, left unchanged in the January report, may be reduced in the February report which could lead to a downturn in corn prices.   Jim Riley, with Riley Trading, told HAT that technically the market is poised to move higher. But some economists are forecasting a swing to lower corn prices this spring and summer. Good sees corn prices staying high at least through the end of February, which will help set the level for crop insurance payments, “The spring insurance guarantee will be at least as high as it was last year at $5.68, and most likely higher.” He does not, however, think that will lead to an increase in corn acres. He added that is a good thing, “We don’t need more corn acres than we planted last year. If we have a good crop, we will have a surplus and lower corn prices by December.” SHARE By Gary Truitt – Jan 14, 2013 SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News The Future of Corn Futures The Future of Corn Futures Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Previous articleIt’s Official: Vilsack to Remain Secretary of AgricultureNext articleStriking a Balance in Animal Production is Ag Forecast Topic Gary Truittlast_img read more

first_imgDirectors could shoulder blame for accidentsOn 12 Sep 2000 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Employer groups expressed concern last week about company directors being held individually responsible for fatal accidents caused by their organisations.This is being considered by the Government as a key part of the new corporate killing law, which will aim to make it easier to prosecute companies for disasters such as the Herald of Free Enterprise and the Paddington train crash (Personnel Today, 30 May).Employers had until last week to respond to the draft law. But despite giving the proposals a broad welcome, they are uneasy about individuals being given overall responsibility for health and safety and possibly facing criminal proceedings if there is an accident.The Engineering Employers’ Federation fears individuals will be made scapegoats. It is also worried that other employees will become less safety-conscious.A CBI spokesman said, “Just because a corporation has been convicted of corporate killing does not mean an individual director should also be held responsible.”The Institute of Directors said disqualifying or prosecuting directors could lead to cover-ups leading to health and safety getting worse rather than better.last_img read more


first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today HMS Liverpool Takes Break From Libya Operations View post tag: Naval View post tag: Libya View post tag: News by topic HMS Liverpool Takes Break From Libya Operations June 22, 2011 After two months on-and-off patrolling the Gulf of Sirte, HMS Liverpool took a break from her Libya operations for a spot of R&R – and ceremonial. The visit to Grand Harbour coincided with the Queen’s official birthday – an event not only celebrated in the UK and RN, but also by islanders in this Commonwealth nation.And so with the Portsmouth-based warship alongside at Pinto Wharf at mid-day on June 10, her ceremonial team fired a 21-gun salute – believed to be the first time a Royal Navy vessel has done so in Grand Harbour since the Senior Service withdrew from the island at the end of the 1970s.The ship’s company were invited to a formal birthday party at the British High Commission where Maltese guests were thanked for their ongoing support for the UK – and in particular their assistance during the evacuation of civilians from Libya earlier this year.Valletta was the hub of the rescue mission for Allied warships – not least HM Ships Cumberland and York – and civilian vessels.Liverpool’s crew also paid visits to sailors past – once Navy, always Navy – by dropping in on Malta’s Royal Naval Association and the RN Officers’ Association.Away from formal duties, the 240-plus sailors finally had a chance to let their hair down; a good number of loved ones made the three-hour flight from the UK to spend six days in Malta – indeed, many were waiting for the destroyer as she entered harbour.“My ship’s company were in need of some rest and relaxation – and we were all looking forward to our visit, especially those who had family flying out to meet us. It was a fantastic visit to an island of which I am very fond.” Said Cdr Colin Williams, Liverpool’s Commanding Officer.His ship hit the headlines back in May when her 4.5in gun opened fire on a rocket battery near Misrata – the first time the main guns of a British warship have been fired in anger since Iraq in 2003.More recent patrols – interspersed with a quick-fire engine change in Taranto in southern Italy – have been, thankfully, less dramatic with the ship enforcing an arms embargo on the Gaddafi regime and directing Allied air traffic in support of the No Fly Zone over the embattled country, alongside 17 other NATO warships in an impressive task force arrayed across the Gulf of Sirte.To those duties has been added a fresh one: protecting Britain’s biggest warship.With HMS Ocean now dispatched to the Libya mission as a launchpad for Apache helicopters, she needs safeguarding from any potential foes – just the job Liverpool and her sisters were originally built to do.To discuss the latter mission, as well as Liverpool’s overarching role on Operation Unified Protector – NATO’s codename for the air-sea effort in Libya – Cdre John Kingwell, Commander UK Task Group, left the Mighty O to visit the Crazy Red Chicken and talk with Cdr Williams plus members of the ship’s company.[mappress]Source: royalnavy, June 22, 2011; View post tag: from View post tag: break View post tag: HMS View post tag: Liverpool View post tag: Navy View post tag: Operations View post tag: takes Share this articlelast_img read more
