Индия может сократить субсидию на калий

Министерство химической промышленности и удобрений Индии выступило с инициативой сократить на 17% субсидию на калий в следующем финансовом году для уменьшения дефицита бюджета, сообщает Reuters со ссылкой на чиновников. По данным агентства, этот шаг может негативно сказаться на показателях спроса одного из крупнейших импортеров в мире.Сокращение господдержки в Индии, считает Reuters, грозит сделать калий относительно дорогим для компаний-импортеров. Некоторые представители этих компаний заявили, что если предложение одобрят, то они станут просить о снижении цен при заключении годовых контрактов с мировыми поставщиками. Кроме того, компании намереваются повысить розничные цены для фермеров, что может снизить спрос.При этом глобальные производители, среди которых Уралкалий, Potash Corp of Saskatchewan, Agrium Inc, Mosaic, K+S, Arab Potash и Israel Chemicals надеялись на устойчивый спрос…

Saudis foot tab at Trump hotel

A lobbying firm working for Saudi Arabia paid for a room at Donald Trump’s Washington hotel after Inauguration Day, marking the first publicly known payment on behalf of a foreign government to a Trump property since he became president.Qorvis MSLGroup, a communications firm that lobbies for the Saudis, has been organizing veterans and other activists to come to Washington to urge Congress to repeal the law letting 9/11 victims’ families sue the kingdom. Between 20 and 40 veterans, with the assistance of the advocacy group NMLB, stayed at the Trump International Hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue in December and January.One of those veterans checked in on Jan. 23 and left on Jan. 26 at a rate of $250 to $325 a night plus tax, according to NMLB president Jason Johns. The bill was paid by Michael Gibson, a subcontractor to Qorvis representing the Saudis, according to disclosures filed with the Justice Department.The Emoluments Clause of the Constitution prohibits U.S. officials from receiving payments from foreign governments. Lawyers started warning about the potential for violations at Trump’s Washington hotel and overseas properties after he won the election, but the clause didn’t start applying to Trump until he took office on Jan. 20.The Jan. 23-26 hotel stay paid by the Saudis raises questions about whether it represents a violation of the foreign emoluments clause.“The problem with Donald Trump’s constitutionally forbidden foreign government cash and other benefits is not just that any one particular payment is problematic — it’s also a systemic problem,” said Norm Eisen, who was President Barack Obama’s ethics czar and is now part of a lawsuit accusing Trump of violation the Emoluments Clause. “It’s another tile in the mosaic of unconstitutional behavior.”While the payment passed through several hands, it doesn’t change the fact that it’s ultimately Saudi money, Eisen said. Lobbying firms typically bill expenses to their client.“If that funneling could launder the emolument, the clause would become a dead letter,” said Laurence Tribe, a constitutional law expert at Harvard who’s also part of the lawsuit.Bobby Burchfield, the Trump Organization’s ethics adviser, declined to comment. A White House spokeswoman didn’t answer a request for comment.To address concerns about potential ethical conflicts, Trump committed, in his Jan. 11 press conference, to donating to the U.S. Treasury the profits from foreign governments’ hotel stays. Most legal authorities say that measure isn’t sufficient because the entire payment is problematic, not just the profit.“It would be absurd to imagine that an otherwise forbidden emolument in the form of a foreign government’s payment to the American President could be cured if the President were to give that foreign government its money’s worth (or more) in services advancing that government’s interests, which might well be contrary to our own,” Eisen wrote in a research paper with Harvard law professor Laurence Tribe and Richard Painter, George W. Bush’s ethics lawyer.The Trump lawyer who developed the plan, Sheri Dillon at the firm Morgan Lewis, disputed that interpretation.“The so-called Emoluments Clause has never been interpreted, however, to apply to fair value exchanges that have absolutely nothing to do with an office holder,” Dillon said on Jan. 11. “Paying for a hotel room is not a gift or a present, and has nothing to do with an office. It is not an emolument.”But either way, the Trump Organization has offered no indication of how it will identify all foreign emoluments, how it will calculate profits, and when it will make the donations to the U.S. Treasury.The watchdog group led by Eisen and Painter, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, has already sued Trump in federal court for allegedly violating the Emoluments Clause within days of his inauguration. Legal experts are dubious of the lawsuit’s chances because the organization may not be able to prove how it’s injured."This example is bound to be one of a vast stream of instances,” Tribe said. “It'll feel like drinking out of a fire hydrant by the time the court takes up our complaint.”Trump has called the lawsuit “without merit.”Qorvis and Gibson didn’t answer requests for comment.The veteran who stayed at the Trump hotel, Dustin Tinsley, did not answer a question about staying there, but he defended his advocacy against the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, which lets 9/11 victims’ families sue Saudi Arabia. It passed over President Barack Obama’s veto last year.“While we may get assistance with our expenses, we have taken time away from our families, work, and personal lives because we care about our fellow veterans, our country and want to see this bad legislation improved and fixed for both veterans and the victims’ families of 9/11,” Tinsley said.Before the inauguration, Kuwait and Bahrain held events at the Trump hotel, and other foreign diplomats reportedly patronized it to curry favor with the incoming president.Trump leases the building for the hotel from the General Services Administration, part of the executive branch. Democrats are pressuring the agency to evict Trump because a line in the contract prohibits it from benefiting an elected official. Trump’s lawyer and some contracting experts dispute that interpretation. Shortly after his inauguration, Trump replaced the agency’s designated temporary chief with his own pick.

'Give To Bigotry No Sanction, To Persecution No Assistance' -- George Washington

"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free... I lift my lamp beside the golden door!" - Inscription on the Statue of Liberty My grandfather, escaping the horrors of genocide in Armenia, saw that statue and believed those words as he made a new life on these shores. This is the story of millions of people from across the world whose ancestors accepted Lady Liberty's invitation and believed in the truths that were held to be self-evident in the Constitution of the United States that "all men (human beings) are created equal and endowed by their creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and Happiness." This week, the world awoke to a very different message from the President of the United States. It was a message directed to those same huddled masses yearning to breathe free; to those who today seek a better life; to those fleeing from persecution; to those who are without home or country as the result of violence and war. His message: you are NOT welcome here. The door is closed. Liberty's lamp has been extinguished. And not only this, but as he repeated throughout his campaign, Donald Trump declared that Mexicans and Muslims, in particular, are not welcome in this "Land of the Free" on account of their race, nationality and religion. Religious prejudice, myopic nationalism and racism seem now to be the explicit guiding policies of the President of the United States and his administration. This prejudice-laden behavior which uses stereotypical generalizations about race, nationality and religion to demean and dehumanize others is the same rhetoric that has fueled racism and violence against groups perceived to be "different" throughout American and world history. It is a belief system that justified slavery and the subjugation of women in the United States, apartheid in South Africa, and colonialism in India. It is the basis for anti-Semitism, providing the theoretical and theological basis for the Nazi-led Holocaust, led to the internment of Japanese-Americans, and genocide in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Rwanda among so many other places. The list of human atrocities caused by the dehumanizing of "the other" is long. Besides being in direct violation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and debasing the core moral and ethical values of all of the religious traditions of the world, these actions also stand in direct conflict with the most basic principles of American society. Over 200 years ago, Americans of different religions were seeking acceptance and assurance that this country would live out its founding beliefs of equal treatment under the law. Another American President, George Washington, expressed his founding vision for America in a letter he wrote to the Hebrew congregation at Newport, Rhode Island in 1790. In this letter, Washington assured the Jewish community that "the Government of the United States...gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance," and that those of all religions "who dwell in this land continue to merit and enjoy the good will of the other inhabitants -- while every one shall sit in safety under his own vine and fig tree and there shall be none to make him afraid." This was the first and founding vision of a multicultural, multi-religious America. The actions of the current President and his staff are an assault on Washington's promise, and should ignite outrage among people of all political perspectives who believe in this vision of America and of a world connected by compassion - not divided by hate. For centuries, the people of this country and their leaders have toiled to realize this promise. It has been a struggle. It continues to be a struggle. But slowly, very slowly and (sometimes with significant setbacks), the words of the Constitution, and the invitation emblazoned upon the Statue of Liberty, have become an increasing reality that has created in the United States the mosaic of peoples of all races and religions, of all genders, cultures and nationalities. This is the contemporary reflection of Washington's founding vision. Throughout history and continuing today, in the United States and in countries around the world, the struggle against prejudice and hate and for peaceful and just diverse societies continues. Our Muslim sisters and brothers, and those refugees of all nationalities and beliefs fleeing persecution, are being targeted by the dehumanizing prejudice that has found its way into presidential pronouncement in the United States. They are being victimized by violence incited by these actions of the US government; the burning of mosques and murder of Muslims are a direct result of these policies. We, people of all beliefs and backgrounds across this country and around the world, are called to stand together arm in arm, connected heart to heart with people of all traditions, against violence of all kinds and stand united in support of freedom of religion and spiritual expression and the rights of all people to lives of dignity and peace in America and throughout the world.

The United States Of America - 1776-2016

The United States of America, a country that became world renowned for freedom and justice, died on January 20th at its home in Washington, D.C. The United States was 250 years old. The office of the medical examiner ruled the death a homicide. The United States was born in 1776, the child of immigrant parents, who had come to North America seeking freedom from religious oppression. Her grandparents were born and raised in Great Britain and her early years were consumed by a struggle to establish independence on her new continent. She succeeded, despite violent resistance from her forbears. Over the years they reconciled. Life was challenging for the United States, but the drive for discovery and self-reliance forged a strong and enduring identity. In the 19th century, a moral crisis interrupted her development, resulting in several years where she suffered from a Dissociative Identity Disorder. The several identities clashed violently from 1861-65. While subsequent therapy mitigated the disorder, vestiges of the conflict remained until her death, with a flare-up in the months just before her passing. Her middle years were a period of astounding growth. She expanded her sense of the possible, became one of the world's most prolific artists, innovators and entrepreneurs. Many of her inventions dramatically changed the world for the better. Perhaps these years were most distinguished by her generosity of spirit. She welcomed beleaguered women, men and children to enter her embrace. She adopted them as her own and watched with great pride as they forged their own lives, adding richness to the mosaic of their new home and adding immeasurably to its vitality and diversity. In the 20th century, she was faced with her greatest challenges. Twice, the world faced potentially cataclysmic threats. She joined with her grandparents and other allies and justice prevailed. The cost was immense and she, along with the rest of the world, lost many children to the unthinkable ravages of war. During her later years, she expanded the concept of justice, demanding equity and justice for all her children, regardless of race, gender and sexual identity, religion or origin. In the months before her death, she suffered great pain as these hard-fought gains withered under pernicious political assault. She leaves behind hundreds of millions of children and many generations who benefitted from her grace and wisdom. Among her most notable survivors are Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Margaret Mead, Susan B. Anthony, Eleanor Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Billy Collins, Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Otis Redding, Thurgood Marshall, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Thelonious Monk, Harriet Tubman, Rachel Carson, Barack Obama, George Carlin, Ella Fitzgerald, Albert Einstein, Arthur Miller, Audre Lorde, Mohammad Ali, George Gershwin, Arthur Ashe, James Earl Carter, Richard Pryor, Will Rogers, Dorothy Parker, and Tatanka Yotanka. The family asks that memorial contributions be made to: Planned Parenthood American Civil Liberties Union Southern Poverty Law Center Lambda Legal Council on American-Islamic Relations Stand with Standing Rock Americans for Immigrant Justice Memorial services will be held in communities of conscience every day until Tuesday, November 3rd, 2020. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Investing: Buy Land, Ag Commodities, Seed, Fertilizer, Tractor Stocks

Agriculture has been a disaster for 30 years, but I’m very optimistic about it. There are many ways to invest: You can buy land, agricultural products, seed companies, fertilizer, tractor companies. Farmers are getting older, and in the U.S., more people study public relations than agriculture. Therein lies the opportunity: Either it’s going to get better, or we’re not going to have any food at any price.  (PowerShares DB Agriculture Fund (NYSE:DBA), ELEMENTS Rogers Intl Commodity Index - Agriculture Total Return ETN (NYSE:RJA), Mosaic (MOS), John Deere (DE))Jim Rogers is a legendary investor that co-founded the Quantum Fund and retired at age thirty-seven.

Cameraperson review – film and maker entwine in arresting cinematic collage

Kirsten Johnson’s unique project intercuts 20 years of personal and professional footage to form a bizarre, absorbing creation that often feels like a lucid dreamCinematographer Kirsten Johnson has shot movies including Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004), Kirby Dick’s The Invisible War (2012) and Laura Poitras’s Citizenfour (2014); now she has created an audacious, bracingly experimental collage-film of her own, putting together a mosaic of film-fragments from the 20 years that she has shot for other people, and also personal material about her own family. The resulting film is a fascinating and unique meta-documentary or quasi-professional memoir; it challenges the question of personality and authorship in the act of seeing, filming and editing (and Johnson was not responsible for the editing here). The images we see may have been created by her – or they may have, in a sense, created her. And the title contains an implied question about gender to go with the implied or submerged issue of autobiography. It is an arresting experience, though it occasionally edges towards narcissism in ways Johnson might not have entirely realised. It can be disconcerting to see passages about Bosnia or Yemen or Guantánamo Bay, juxtaposed so they appear to lead hintingly back to the person behind the camera. But this is only to restate what should be obvious but often isn’t: the camera is being directed by a flesh-and-blood human being with conscious and unconscious biases. Continue reading...

The 5th UN Alliance of Civilizations Global Forum opens at Vienna

Hofburg Palace, Vienna (Austria) - Speakers at the opening of the 5th Global Forum of the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations all emphasized conflict resolution using Syria as an example. Under the sparkling chandeliers of the Hofsburg Palace in Vienna, world leaders and other participants are meeting to discuss ways to further the goals of the UNAOC while encouraging more responsible leadership. The foreign minister of Austria Michael Spindelegger opened the session by stressing how his country's tradition of wanting a dialogue matches the goals of the UNAOC. That theme was later elaborated on by the country's Federal President Heinz Fischer. U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon spoke about conflict resolution, job creation and specific troubles going on around the globe. "In too many places, anti-Muslim sentiment has become commonplace," Ban Ki-moon said. "Migrants from all backgrounds are vilified instead of embraced. When such attitudes are left unchallenged, racists feel empowered." He spoke at length about Syria, describing it as a 'mosaic of tribes, religion, culture and traditions. Later, during a press conference, he blamed the language of hatred for creating a divide in the world.
