The American Soybean Association (ASA) welcomed the introduction this morning of new legislation to establish a federal voluntary labeling standard for foods made with genetically modified organisms, or GMOs.The Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act would direct FDA to provide guidance for companies that wish to label their products for the presence or absence of GMOs; make mandatory an FDA safety review of all new GMO traits before they are brought to market and enable FDA to mandate labels on any product shown to pose a health, safety or nutrition risk; and directs FDA to define the term “natural” for use on food labels. Additionally, the bill would eliminate a large potential source of confusion among consumers by establishing FDA’s labeling guidance as the national standard and preventing states from enacting a patchwork of conflicting requirements.“This bill is a commonsense, science-based approach to an issue we realize is close to the hearts and minds of so many consumers,” said Iowa farmer and ASA President Ray Gaesser. “Americans want to know that their food is safe, and the solutions proposed in this bill will ensure that they have that information. It will require that the FDA review all new GMO traits for safety, and stipulate that the FDA require labels for any product that has a safety or health risk. It will allow companies to voluntarily label foods as non-GMO and enable those consumers who wish purchase non-GMO foods to do so. Importantly, however, it won’t force consumers to pay more for food just because some interests want to require mandatory labeling of safe and healthy foods made with GMOs.”Economic studies show that an average family of four would pay about $500 more per year for groceries under mandatory GMO labeling schemes being considered in some states.Gaesser especially praised the bill’s co-sponsors, Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.) and G.K. Butterfield (D-N.C.) for their foresight in championing the bill. “Congressmen Pompeo and Butterfield and each of the sponsors of this bill have taken a brave and progressive step,” he said. “The conversation surrounding GMOs is one that has been crowded with misinformation and hyperbole on all sides, but at its core, must be about science. The Congressmen realize that my fellow farmers and I use these tools—each of which represents a revolutionary and proven-safe scientific advance—to be more productive while consuming fewer resources. They are to be commended for pursuing a science-based step forward on GMOs, and we call on the Energy and Commerce Committee to move forward with hearings on the bill as quickly as possible.”“Genetically modified soybeans have been in widespread use by American farmers since 1997. Not only have these applications been repeatedly tested and proven safe by the world’s most stringent food safety testing system, they have been so without a single documented instance of a human or animal health risk. Not one. That’s why, as farmers, we grow them, and as consumers, we feed them to our families,” added Gaesser. “It’s time that we have a reasonable, science-based discussion on GMOs and this bill helps get us there.”
SEATTLE — Helping Democrat Jay Inslee defeat Republican Rob McKenna in the gubernatorial race is a higher priority for the statewide teachers’ union this year than whether voters approve public charter schools.“I think it’s pretty clear that we have a real priority in making sure that we get someone elected as governor who will put kids first,” said Mary Lindquist, president of the Washington Education Association.The political action committee for the Washington Education Association is one of the top contributors to a group called OUR Washington, which is behind the pro-Inslee TV ad series purporting to show “The Real Rob McKenna.”The WEA PAC has contributed $500,000 of the $5 million raised as of this week for that effort, while the National Education Association has put in another $500,000, according to reports filed with the state Public Disclosure Commission. The political action committee gets its cash from donations by teachers, about a third of whom support the political activities of their union.That makes the state and national teachers’ unions the biggest supporters of those ads after the Democratic Governors Association.Lindquist said the WEA focused its money on the governor’s race — as well as keeping lawmakers in office who understand the Supreme Court’s recent ruling on school spending — because it believes the main problem facing Washington schools is a lack of a reliable funding source.

Where: 1554 N.E. Third Ave., Camas.Telephone: 360-833-8835, ext. 201On the Web:CID Bio-ScienceWhen a derelict building on the eastern edge of Camas showed fresh signs of life, neighbors stopped by to thank the new owners for restoring it.Over its lifetime, the historic structure on Third Avenue served many purposes. In its original incarnation, as American Legion Hall Post No. 27, it was a gathering place for those returned from war and service. Later, it was a roller rink and then a neon sign company. But more recently, it sat vacant and forlorn.CID Bio-Science bought the building in 2011, renovated it and moved in December 2012.“For years, neighbors saw the building in its rundown state,” said Suzy Truitt of CID Bio-Science. “We’ve brought it back to its original glory.”Leonard Felix, owner and president of CID Bio-Science, envisioned moving his business to its own building in Camas.“When Leonard walked into this building, he fell in love with the bones,” Truitt said. “Even though from the outside, the building was in bad shape, the bones were in fabulous shape.”Now restored, the building recently was listed on the Clark County Heritage Register. The nomination form describes it as a rustic Arts and Crafts structure designed in 1933 by notable architect Day Walter Hilborn. Construction of the 10,630-square-foot building was completed in 1935. Characteristic of Depression-era buildings, it’s utilitarian and lacks ornamentation.
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The Oregon State Police say a trooper has been wounded during a traffic stop on Interstate 84 east of The Dalles.The agency has not described the extent of the injury. A spokesman says the suspect involved in the shooting died Thursday afternoon.More officers were headed to the scene.The state Department of Transportation says the freeway is closed in both directions between Biggs Junction and Rufus and is expected to remain that way all afternoon.The stretch of I-84 between milepost 105 and 109 is expected to remain closed for 5 or 6 hours, said Trooper Will Finn, spokesman for the Washington State Patrol. Motorists will be diverted to Highway 14 via Highway 97 and 197, which may result in heavy traffic on the Washington side of the river until 10 p.m. this evening, according to the Washington State Department of Transportation.
SAN FRANCISCO — Federal wildlife officials on Friday proposed to list as threatened populations of greater sage grouse in Nevada and California in an effort to save the struggling species, a decision that promises to pose new challenges for ranching and energy development in the West.The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service found that invasive species and energy development in the desert have had a devastating effect on the large, ground-dwelling bird’s populations, said Ted Koch, Nevada state supervisor for the service.“It’s not the 11th hour for sage grouse here, but it is maybe the 10th hour,” Koch said. “And that’s good news. It means we have some time and space to turn things around.”The service found multiple threats facing this specific sub-population of the sage grouse, a chicken-size bird whose males have a large white tuft of feathers around their necks.The service estimates there are only about 5,000 of the birds left.Non-native pinyon pine and juniper trees introduced to the habitat and power lines have given low-to-the-ground perches for raptors, which eat the grouse, Koch said.
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — NASA has ordered up a series of urgent spacewalks to fix a broken cooling line at the International Space Station.Station managers decided Tuesday to send two American astronauts out as soon as possible to replace a pump with a bad valve. It’s a major job that will require three spacewalks — Saturday, Monday and next Wednesday on Christmas Day.“The next week will be busy with space walks so not much tweeting from here,” NASA astronaut Rick Mastracchio tweeted from space soon after the decision was announced.The spacewalks are taking priority over the launch of a supply ship from Virginia. The commercial delivery had been scheduled for this week, but is now delayed until at least mid-January.Half of the station’s cooling system shut down last Wednesday, forcing the six-man crew to turn off all nonessential equipment, including some science experiments. Because of the valve failure, one of the two cooling lines became too cold.The space station cooling system, which runs ammonia through the lines, is critical for dispelling heat generated by on-board equipment.While the astronauts are safe and comfortable, NASA wants the system back up to full strength, in case of another failure that could leave the orbiting outpost even more vulnerable than it is right now.
A huge wildfire in a forest region east of Sacramento expanded by 3,000 acres, fire officials reported Saturday.State fire agency Cal Fire and the U.S. Forest Service, which are jointly managing firefighting efforts in the area, said that nearly 5,000 firefighters continued battling the 80,000-acre King fire, which is believed to have been set intentionally.Nearly 3,000 people had been evacuated from the area, and 21,000 structures remain threatened by the week-old blaze, which was 10 percent contained as of Saturday afternoon.“This fire is a monster,” Cal Fire spokeswoman Lynne Tolmachoff said Saturday.The King fire started Sept. 13, grew for several days, and then exploded in a matter of hours Wednesday night from 27,930 acres to 71,000 acres.Warm temperatures, low humidity and forests full of extremely dry trees — the result of serious drought conditions — all contributed to the fire’s severity, Tolmachoff said.On Saturday, ground crews worked to strengthen containment lines to limit further spread of the flames. Teams fanned out to assess damage to structures.Cal Fire and U.S. Forest Service crews also split the fire into two management zones, in an effort to improve logistics and reduce travel time for fire crews to reach their assignments.
RelatedPosts Amax reports significant 2019 losses after Greek Mythology write-off Hong Kong airport shut down as analysts warn protests having negative impact on Macau GGR In an emailed statement issued on Friday, Aruze Gaming representatives said that Okada was “pleased to announce that Hong Kong’s ICAC has released him from bail unconditionally this afternoon,” adding “he no longer needs to report to the ICAC and his bail money was returned to him unconditionally.”His Hong Kong arrest last year followed an original complaint by Universal subsidiary Tiger Resort Asia Ltd (TRA) accusing its founder of conspiracy to defraud Okada Holdings – the majority shareholder in Universal – of HK$135 million in 2015. Okada is alleged to have arranged a loan of HK$135 million from TRA to Goldluck Tech Limited to pay for artworks without requesting any collateral and without imposing any interest.TRA also filed a damages suit against Okada with Hong Kong’s high court in late 2017 relating to the loan as well as a second case in May 2015 in which Okada is alleged to have issued a bearer check in the amount of HK$16 million from a bank account under the name of TRA before withdrawing the HK$16 million from TRA’s account three days later based on the check.Okada was kicked off the Universal and TRA boards in June 2017.Okada’s release from bail follows the recent backing by the Philippine Department of Justice (DOJ) of a decision by the City Prosecutor’s Office of Parañaque to dismiss estafa charges against him in relation to the supply of LED strips for the exterior façade of Okada Manila in 2016.However, the DOJ has also recommended charges be filed against Okada for allegations of fraud during his tenure as Chairman of Okada Manila operator Tiger Resort Leisure and Entertainment, Inc, which is a subsidiary of TRA. Controversial gaming mogul Kazuo Okada has been granted an unconditional release from bail conditions previously imposed on him by Hong Kong’s Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC), according to a statement from Aruze Gaming.Okada was arrested in Hong Kong in August 2018 in relation to fraud and corruption charges leveled by his former company, Universal Entertainment Corp, before being released on bail.

Autumn Statement 2016: Chancellor Philip Hammond has announced in his Autumn Statement speech that fuel duty will be frozen at 57.95p litre for the seventh consecutive year from April 2017.The continued freeze is estimated to save the average car driver £130 a year and van drivers £350 a year. This is the longest fuel duty freeze in 40 years.Rupert Pontin, director of valuations at Glass, said: “For the motorist using their car today, the fuel duty freeze is good news. For people whose personal budgets are under some pressure, these measures are worthwhile if unspectacular.”Charlie Elphicke, member of Parliament for Dover and chair of APPG for Fair Fuel, added: “I’m delighted the Chancellor listened to the concerns of drivers and FairFuelUK supporters up and down the land. He is absolutely right to put more money in the pockets of hard-pressed families and small businesses.”
Media strategy organisation Total Media has been accredited as a living wage employer by the Living Wage Foundation.The organisation has committed to paying its 129 permanent employees, as well as any third-party contractors, at least the voluntary living wage rate of £8.75 an hour for staff working in the UK and £10.20 an hour for employees based in London.Total Media will implement the living wage rates from 17 February 2018.The living wage is an independently set hourly rate of pay that is calculated according to the basic costs of living. Employers pay the living wage rate, which is updated annually, on a voluntary basis. The living wage is currently set at £8.75 an hour for employees working across the UK and at £10.20 an hour for staff based in London. The higher London living wage reflects the increased living costs associated with residing in the capital.The voluntary living wage is distinct from the statutory national living wage, which is paid to employees aged 25 and over. The national living wage rate is currently set at £7.50 an hour.Vicky Cooper (pictured), head of people and culture at Total Media, said: “A business is only as good as its talent, and we strive to ensure our employees are valued and their wellbeing is a key priority of our business. In a competitive market, we know we can offer employees a fantastic experience and our voluntary commitment to the living wage reflects this.”
