The ethanol industry is also concerned about the price and supply of corn. Some have suggested that ethanol production be cut back to make sure there is enough corn for the livestock market, but Vilwock says that would also cause some serious problems, “Because we have nothing to replace ethanol with.” He said MTBE was taken off the market as a gasoline additive because of cancer concerns, now gasoline makers have nothing to replace ethanol with as a fuel additive. He said getting rid of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), as some have suggested, is not a silver bullet that will solve the problem. SHARE By Gary Truitt – Jul 9, 2012 The sharp and sudden rise in corn prices is putting livestock producers in a very difficult position. Many are concerned that they will not be able to afford feed for their animals, while others fear there will not be enough corn to go around. Don Vilwock, with Indiana Farm Bureau, says it is a serious situation, “This has really put livestock producers between a rock and a hard place.” He said those who must purchase their feed inputs have seen their costs move up at a record pace in the past few weeks.

Gary Truitt talks with Don VilwockDeepening drought conditions are pushing corn and soybean prices higher, and that is having serious implications for the livestock and energy sector. The latest USDA crop update said that a large portion of the corn crop moved into the pollination stage under these extreme conditions. Some farmers and crop insurance representatives are discussing the prospect of destroying or cutting corn for forage. According to the update released Monday afternoon, “Corn condition continued to decline and is now rated 12 percent good to excellent compared with 59 percent last year at this time.” HAT market analyst Gary Wilhelmi reports that current market estimates are for corn yields to average about 150 bpa.

We wish to file a reply”, he advanced.”We are considering the main point of LPA and whether it was maintainable. We are on the first point of whether an appeal lay before the division bench. We are not concerned with the further developments right now”, observed Justice Shah.”We wish to assist Your Lordships on the further developments. They want to scuttle the investigation. Please issue notice on my IA. If the SG wants time, the same may be granted and the matter may be heard on another day “, pressed Mr Salve.”Apropos what Justice Shah just said, both the petitioner and the CBI had filed the LPA. We wish to assist Your Lordships on the Calcutta High Court rules governing LPA. Fauji’s case would not apply here”, advanced the SG.The Supreme Court had in 2017 in Ram Kishan Fauji’s case held that an intra-court appeal cannot be filed before a division bench of the high court if a single judge has passed the order in a criminal case. “The contention that solely because a writ petition is filed to quash an investigation it would have room for intra-court appeal, and if a petition is filed under inherent jurisdiction under Section 482 CrPC, there would be no space for an intra-court appeal, would create an anomalous, unacceptable and inconceivable situation. The provision contained in the Letters Patent does not allow or permit such an interpretation,” a bench comprising Justices Dipak Misra, A M Khanwilkar and M M Shantanagoudar had said.”The Calcutta High Court rules are similar to the other High Courts, that no appeal would lie”, remarked Justice Chandrachud. Senior advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi, appearing for the state of West Bengal, prayed that the state’s civil appeal be also listed- “We are very concerned. Please grant a short date. It affects several other cases also “The Single Judge Bench of the High Court had ruled that probe beyond the Railway areas (in the State of West Bengal), shall be conducted by the CBI only subject to specific consent being granted by appropriate authorities of the State of West Bengal. In an appeal preferred by CBI, a Division Bench of the High Court stayed the Single Judge’s order and allowed CBI to investigate the case without any hindrance.On Monday, it was prayed that the appeal against the Single Bench judgement also be listed on 10 March, urging that if the letters patent appeal is found to be not maintainable, the party cannot be left to remedy-less.”They had appealed where they lost. They lost before the Single Judge, so they went before the DB. From the DB, they are now here in a SLP “, argued Mr Mehta.Initially, senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi, for the petitioner, was engaged in another court and was unable to appear before the bench. Accordingly, a passover was sought on his behalf. As the bench seemed inclined to adjourn the matter by one week to grant the CBI time to file its reply, it was urged on Mr Rohatgi’s behalf that the matter had been given a short notice last week and that it may be passed over to be taken up later in the day.”We are only adjourning the matter for a week. We are not granting a long adjournment”, assured Justice Chandrachud.The Supreme Court had on last Monday sought response of the Central Bureau of Investigation in the plea filed challenging order of the Calcutta High Court whereby it allowed CBI to investigate a case pertaining to illegal mining and transportation of coal through Railways in West Bengal, without the State’s consent.Justices Chandrachud and Shah had also issued notice to the Union of India and Superintendent of Police Anti- Corruption Branch along with CBI. The court however denied to grant interim protection from coercive steps to the petitioner.BackgroundThe case pertains to illegal mining and transportation of coal through Railways in connivance with officers of the Eastern Coalfield Limited, Railways, C.I.S.F. and some other private persons including the writ petitioner (Anup Majee).A FIR was registered in the matter by CBI for offences of criminal conspiracy, criminal breach of trust by public servants and criminal misconduct by public servants by dishonestly or fraudulently misappropriating the property entrusted to them or any property under their control as public servants or allowing other persons to do so.The Petitioner had impugned the FIR before a Single Bench of the Calcutta High Court which held that authority of the CBI to investigate into the allegations in a particular case within Railway areas remains unfettered by the withdrawal of consent by the State Government.In an appeal preferred by CBI, a Division Bench of the High Court stayed the Single Judge’s order and allowed CBI to investigate the case without any hindrance. It observed,”Proper investigation cannot be carried out if the investigation in such cases is divided into parts, drawing lines on territories once the premier central agency is in the process of investigation.”In case during the pendency of the present appeals, the investigation being carried out by the CBI is hampered, the process of investigation at this stage will certainly be prejudiced, which will not be in the interest of justice as any delay in the process may be fatal…”Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

iStock(KETTERING, Ohio) — The friend of the gunman who killed nine people in a popular nightlife district in Dayton, Ohio, in August has pleaded guilty to federal firearms charges, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.Kettering, Ohio, resident Ethan Kollie, 24, pleaded guilty Wednesday to illegally possessing firearms and lying on federal firearms forms at the federal courthouse for the Southern District of Ohio in Cincinnati, according to the DOJ news release.Federal prosecutors accused Kollie of lying on the form to purchase his own firearm as well as body armor, a 100-round drum magazine and an unregulated accessory for an AR-15 weapon that gunman Connor Betts used during the shooting, according to a criminal complaint filed in the Southern District of Ohio in August.On Aug. 4, 24-year-old Conner Betts opened fire in Dayton’s Oregon District, killing nine people, including his sister, and injuring 17 more. The entirety of the massacre lasted just 32 seconds when Betts was killed by a police officer.As part of his guilty plea, Kollie acknowledged that he checked the “no” box for question 11e on the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) Form 4473, which asks “Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?” despite being a user of marijuana and psychedelic mushrooms, according to the release.“Kollie answered falsely because he knew he would not be able to obtain the micro Draco pistol if he answered truthfully,” the release states.During a search of Kollie’s residence after the shooting, law enforcement officers recovered the pistol which was loaded with 30 rounds of ammunition, as well as marijuana, psychedelic mushrooms, additional weapons, ammunition, drug paraphernalia and equipment to grow psychedelic mushrooms, according to the DOJ.Kollie also indicated to the FBI and ATF during an interview that he had purchased items for Betts, U.S. Attorney Benjamin Glassman told reporters at a press conference in August.In a statement to ABC News, Kollie’s defense attorney Nick Gounaris said he “takes full responsibility for the actions that are contained in the statement of facts.”“He looks forward to moving on with his life, and he’s glad to get this offense behind him,” Gounaris said.The charges warrant a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison. Kollie’s sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 20. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved. read more
(Alec Tabak/New York Daily News/Tribune News Service via Getty Images(NEW YORK) –Harvey Weinstein was sentenced to 23 years on sex crime convictions in New York on Wednesday.Harvey Weinstein was “despondent and dejected” as he prepared for sentencing after being convicted earlier this month of sexually assaulting two women, according to a spokesman.“He’s not doing well,” Juda Engelmayer told ABC News on Tuesday evening. “He’s looking at the rest of his life and feeling dejected and despondent.”Engelmayer said that numerous friends of Weinstein offered to write letters to the judge attesting to his character, but that every single person insisted on writing an anonymous letter to protect their own reputations.“It shows you that even people who want to support you publicly would be vilified for doing so,” Engelmayer said.Engelmayer declined to comment on a series of previously unpublished internal correspondences released on Monday between Weinstein and his colleagues and defense and public relations teams in the days following bombshell revelations about Weinstein’s past that first surfaced in The New York Times and The New Yorker in the fall of 2017.‘I’m suicidal’The documents were unsealed this week at the request of numerous media outlets, including the New York Daily News and The New York Times.“I have lost my family,” Weinstein wrote in one draft statement dated Dec. 21, 2017, according to the New York Daily News. “I have daughters that will not talk to me. I have lost my wife. I have lost the respect of my ex-wife and generally almost all of my friends. I have no company. I’m alone. And I will be honest with you: I’m suicidal.”In another internal email from November 2017 that was released Monday, Weinstein’s brother and business partner, Bob Weinstein, excoriated the Hollywood mogul.“Just read u been abusing women, when u were in your twenties,” Bob Weinstein wrote to Harvey, according to the New York Daily News. “Numbers are up to 82. U are world class, in that area. U deserve a lifetime achievement award for the sheer savagery and immorality and inhumanness, for the acts u have perpetrated.”“Now show some strength and don’t write back,” he continued. “If u do, it’s just your denial and disease having the power of the last word. If u actually say u are trying to get better, It’s just another lie amongst the millions. (Expletive) u Harvey Weinstein. I pray there is a real hell. That’s where u belong. I suppose being you, is its own hell, if u could feel it, but no chance. OJ didn’t kill Nicole Simpson and u had consensual sex with all those poor victimized women.”‘A serious offense’Earlier this month, Weinstein was convicted of two of five charges against him: criminal sexual assault for an attack in 2006 on former Project Runway production assistant Mimi Haley, and third-degree rape for a 2013 attack on aspiring actress Jessica Mann. Both women are expected to present victim-impact statements to the judge on Wednesday, according to the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office.Weinstein, who declined at trial to take the stand in his own defense, will also be permitted to make a statement to the judge before he is sentenced.Weinstein is facing a minimum of probation and a maximum of four years in prison on the rape conviction, and between five and 25 years on the criminal sexual assault conviction.In a sentencing recommendation letter to the judge in the case, Manhattan prosecutors detailed 36 “prior bad acts” they said justified an extended prison sentence for Weinstein.Prosecutors did not recommend a specific sentence in the letter, but contended that it is “totally appropriate” to show through the court’s sentence “that sexual assault, even if perpetrated upon an acquaintance or in a professional setting, is a serious offense worthy of a lengthy prison sentence.”Defense attorneys are seeking a minimum sentence of five years.“As an individual with no criminal history having spent no time previously incarcerated, his health concerns, his age, and as famous as he is, a custodial sentence will no doubt prove much more difficult for Mr. Weinstein than most other inmates, which further counsels in favor of a sentence of five years’ imprisonment,” defense attorneys Damon Chernois and Donna Rotunno said in their own letter to the judge. “With respect to deterrence, counsel will again note that Mr. Weinstein is a first-time offender.”Engelmayer said Weinstein plans to appeal his New York convictions.What’s next for Weinstein?After sentencing, Weinstein will be sent to Downstate Correctional Facility in Fishkill, New York, a maximum-security prison and inmate reception center where New York City inmates get a medical evaluation before being assigned to a state prison facility, according to state corrections officials.While state corrections officials are responsible for determining where Weinstein will serve out his sentence, those officials can take recommendations from the judge about an inmate with medical problems like Weinstein.Three of New York state’s 52 correctional facilities — in Fishkill, Bedford Hills and Coxsackie, New York — have residential medical units.Weinstein is also preparing to defend himself against four felony sexual assault charges filed earlier this year by the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office. In that case, Weinstein is charged with attacking two women in separate incidents in February 2013 within a day of each other.A spokesman for the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office declined to comment on the impending trial in Los Angeles.
