New America’s Pig Farmer of the Year Named

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News New America’s Pig Farmer of the Year Named 2016-americas-pig-farmer-namedA South Dakota pig farmer is the new title holder for America’s Pig Farmer of the Year, edging 3 other finalists including Maria Mauer of Greensburg, Indiana. Brad Greenway succeeds Indiana’s Keith Schoettmer, who won last year in the first year of the program. The Pork Checkoff award recognizes a pig farmer who excels at raising pigs using the We Care ethical principles and connects with consumers about pork production. Greenway hopes to share his story of what he does on the farm with consumers.“When I filled out the application and decided to do this, I went through the process and really enjoyed that. The other three finalists, we got to be good friends and I was honored to even get that far. To be named the winner I truly am honored and I want to try to do my best to represent all pig farmers on what we do every day, and I hope I can answer questions and have a conversation with consumers on their interests.”Greenway says his family has been very supportive to him and also does a great job of advocating for the pork industry.Finalist Mauer from Decatur County credited the inaugural program and Schoettmer himself for reaching over 31 million consumers with a positive message last year. She has appreciated the chance to share how she promotes animal well-being.“If we can’t treat animals right we can hardly expect to treat each other right, and it’s all got to start somewhere. On our farm we take exceptionally good care of our animals, especially our sows. We like our sows to stay in the herd a long time so it’s very important that we give her the very best care so that she can last several years. We do everything we possibly can to give her everything she needs to be comfortable and healthy, and have a nice long life.”Greenway was chosen as the Pig Farmer of the Year after achieving the highest score from a third-party judging panel and online voting. An audit of on-farm practices and a series of written and oral interviews was also part of the process.To learn more about Greenway’s farm and the America’s Pig Farmer of the Year Award, visit www.americaspigfarmer.com.Producers can contact the Pork Checkoff Service Center at www.Pork.org or call 800-456-PORK.

“Fate of the Furious” stutters past the finish line

first_img Previous articleRaising money to ‘Sink Out’ arthritisNext articleThe Skiff: April 20, 2017 Chris Garcia RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Chris Garciahttps://www.tcu360.com/author/chris-garcia/ Linkedin printThe latest in the “Fast and Furious” franchise, “Fate of the Furious” delivers on the series’ signature action and outrageous scenarios but lacks the heart of previous films.The film follows the “Fast family” (Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson) as they must work to stop the mysterious hacker Cipher (Charlize Theron) and a now rogue Dom (Vin Diesel).This image released by Universal Pictures shows Charlize Theron, left, and Vin Diesel in “The Fate of the Furious.” (Universal Pictures via AP)“Fate” works best when it’s serving as a bookend to the story of the previous four movies. The film does a great job of forming connections to these previous events and plotlines while also answering questions that have been left open since the franchise rebooted in 2009. Unfortunately, the newer material brought into the franchise doesn’t blend with the old. There’s also a lack of emotion due to the absence of Paul Walker, which makes the film’s over-reliance on Dom’s story more apparent and awkward. This means that while the film is the same stylistically, the drive behind the characters and their decisions is incoherent.The subpar plot is emphasized by the lackluster performances by most of the film’s cast. The “family” phones it in for the most part with performances ranging from ok to poor, making it seem like the actors have stopped caring about the franchise they’re in. Diesel himself ends up being the weakest link of the cast, coming across as robotic for most of the film.This image released by Universal Pictures shows, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, seated left, and Nathalie Emmanuel, seated right, and Tyrese Gibson, standing from left, Scott Eastwood, Dwayne Johnson and Michelle Rodriguez in “The Fate of the Furious.” (Matt Kennedy/Universal Pictures via AP)Thankfully, the newer additions to the cast keep “Fate” from being a complete burnout. Johnson puts forth the most effort, fully embracing the cheesiness of his role to great success. This is enhanced by his interactions with Jason Statham, whose charm and snark works well with the tone of the franchise and compliments Johnson perfectly. Rounding out the newcomers is Theron, who puts forth an over-the-top and generally sleazy performance as the film’s villain.Despite their performances, the film still feels empty due to a lack of character development. Diesel’s turn against those he loves, despite having a logical reason, defies the values of the series and his character’s development thus far. This turns into a bigger issue when the film leans heavily on his arc to force emotion from the audience. The same goes for the crew, whose decisions seem random and often times unwarranted when compared to the development they have seen over the franchise.The film’s other strength lies in its visuals. The constantly changing locations keeps the shots vibrant and fun to look at. Some well-planned and executed action scenes also help make the film more interesting. There are, however, too many uses of slow-mo and some poorly done CGI that sticks out compared to the rest of the film’s more natural look.This image released by Universal Pictures shows Dwayne Johnson in “The Fate of the Furious.” (Universal Pictures via AP)Overall, “Fate of the Furious” is a popcorn flick by all definitions. Fans of the series will enjoy the action and throwbacks, though some may be a bit put off by the noticeable lack of heart. Meanwhile, those not already invested in the series won’t find much to convince them to the join the roller coaster ride of the “Fast and Furious” franchise.Verdict: Despite its fun over-the-top action, odd character choices and lack of emotion cause “Fate of the Furious” to lose a little momentum.6/10 + posts Facebook Chris Garcia ReddIt TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Chris Garciahttps://www.tcu360.com/author/chris-garcia/ TCU VGP (Ep. 24 – Battlefront Details, Telltale’s Guardians and more) Chris Garciahttps://www.tcu360.com/author/chris-garcia/ Chris Garciahttps://www.tcu360.com/author/chris-garcia/ World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Sizzle Reel (Ep. 23 – Star Wars Celebration, DC Rumors and more) TCU VGP Video Finale (Ep. 25 – Call of Duty WWII, Cluster Trucks and more) Twitter Facebook Chris Garcia is a senior film and journalism double major from Midland, Texas.

The Bench of Justice Alka Sarin observed that in view of Section 4 of the Hindu Marriage Act,1955 all customs like ‘Panchayati’ divorce and related usages ceased to have effect. The matter before the Court The Court was hearing a Criminal Writ Petition seeking direction to respondent Nos.2 to 4 to safeguard the lives of the petitioners (both major) by providing police help to them. It was further alleged that the relatives of petitioner No.2 are against the relationship of the petitioners and the petitioners contended that they are apprehending danger to their life and liberty. The petitioners got married on 21st January 2021 at Gurudwara Dashmesh Pita, Kharar as per Sikh rites and ceremonies. It was further submitted that petitioner No.1 was earlier married to one Mandeep Kaur and had taken a Panchayati Divorce on 19th June 2017, whereas, petitioner No.2 was earlier married to one Harjinder Singh and had got a divorce under Section 13-B of the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955 vide judgment and decree dated 14th July 2000. Court’s Observations On a query put to the counsel for the petitioners as to the marital status of petitioner No.1, Nishan Singh, it was stated that he got a Panchayati divorce. To this, the Court said, “Strangely, the learned counsel is relying upon a Panchayati divorce which has no recognition in the eyes of law. There is no decree of dissolution of marriage of petitioner No.1 by a Court of competent jurisdiction and his first marriage subsists in the eyes of law.” The Court further said, “The learned counsel has also not been able to show as to how this Court can provide protection to the petitioners as a couple when petitioner No.1 has not legally divorced his earlier spouse. The petitioner Nos.1 and 2 are alleged to have got married without petitioner No.1 obtaining a legally valid divorce from his first wife.” The Court also observed that the alleged marriage itself between petitioner No.1 and petitioner No.2 would be illegal and against the provisions of the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955 inasmuch as this marriage has been contracted without the petitioner No.1 being legally divorced. Court’s Order The Court, while noting that the petitioners have approached this Court for protection of their life and liberty to live as a couple which cannot be considered in the facts and circumstances of the present case, said, “However, as an individual either of the petitioners, if they apprehend any threat to their life or liberty, would be entitled to approach the Police for redressal of their apprehensions regarding threats to their life and liberty.” Thus, while holding that the instant petition is not maintainable at the behest of the petitioners who have got married without petitioner No.1 being legally and validly divorced, the Court observed, “The petitioners, as individuals, would always be at liberty to approach the concerned Senior Superintendent of Police for redressal of their apprehensions regarding threats to their life and liberty.” Lastly, the Court directed the concerned officer(s) to consider their representation (if made) in accordance with law.

Over 200 love letters, other fan mail sent to Florida shooting suspect, attorney says

first_imgCopyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved. ABC News(PARKLAND, Fla.) — The accused mass shooter in the Parkland, Florida, massacre has been sent over 200 love letters and other pieces of fan mail in jail, according to Broward County public defender Howard Finkelstein. But since 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz is on suicide watch, he can’t have access to these letters on his own, Finkelstein told ABC News.Attorneys are starting to bring him only the letters that are religious-related, Finkelstein said.Cruz is not allowed to see the love letters, especially since some are from underage girls, Finkelstein said. “These letters are from regular teenage girls from across the nation,” Finkelstein said. “I’ve been here for 40 years and we’ve never received letters like this.“And my fear from the beginning is that this trial will make him famous and spread more hate,” Finkelstein said.Cruz is accused of gunning down 17 students and staff at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Feb. 14. He had been expelled from the school over disciplinary problems. Earlier this month, Broward County Judge Elizabeth Scherer entered a not guilty plea on Cruz’s behalf, after his lawyers indicated he would stand mute, or refuse to plead either innocent or guilty. Defense attorney Melisa McNeill emphasized to the judge that Cruz remains willing “at any time” to plead guilty “in exchange for a waiver of the death sentence” and instead spend the rest of his life behind bars.Finkelstein said today he is hoping to end this case as soon as possible so the community can heal.last_img read more
