10 December 2014A new system aimed at improving the competitiveness of South Africa’s mining sector came into effect on Monday, 8 December, the departments of Mineral Resources and Environmental Affairs said in a joint statement on Tuesday.The One Environmental System is aimed at streamlining licensing processes for mining, environmental authorisations and water use.It represents the “government’s commitment to improve the ease of doing business and further enhance South Africa’s global competitiveness as a mining investment jurisdiction,” the statement said.Under the system, the minister of mineral resources will be responsible for issuing environmental authorisations and waste management licences for mining and related activities.Environmental Affairs Minister Edna Molewa will be the appeal authority for these authorisations.The National Environmental Management Laws Amendment Act, known as Nemla 3, is part of a suite of Acts that form the One Environmental System.While passed in September, it was only implemented from 8 December to ensure all complementary legislation, including certain sections of the Minerals and Petroleum Resources Development Amendment Act (MPRDA), were in place.Permits will now be issued simultaneously by environmental affairs, mineral resources and water and sanitation within a fixed time frame – a maximum of 300 days.If a decision is appealed, an additional 90 days will be granted to finalise the process.“Until all the legislative amendments have been effected to formalise these timeframes, the timeframes stipulated in [the he National Environmental Management Act] Nema will be applicable,” the statement said.Until the regulations regarding residue stockpiles and residue deposits as well as the financial provision for rehabilitation regulations are finalised, the MPRDA regulations remain in force.Minister of Mineral Resources Ngoako Ramatlhodi can now appoint mineral resource inspectors, who will have the same powers as environmental management inspectors to enforce the provisions of the National Environmental Management Act.The system was first announced by President Jacob Zuma in his State of the Nation address in February.SAinfo reporter
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest I haven’t paid much attention to how much rain we’ve gotten. I just know we’re wet and cold. There hasn’t been much to get too excited about. Hopefully the rain stops. I turned my rain gauge upright the other day and we’re going to start keeping track of that. It was windy up here but there was no damage I am aware of. There were no tornadoes, for once. Usually it seems like Van Wert is right in the heart of those.I don’t want to be in this camp, but I have slowly slid into the camp that I don’t think we’ll see many wheels turn until the first of May around here. Even if it turned nice right now we are a week away at least from being dry. It looks like any warmth in the forecast is going to lead to more moisture. I think we have a while before we can think about doing anything in the fields. We are just working on getting equipment ready.The tariffs and China have everybody in an uproar but I think we’re a long ways away from that being over yet. I’d like to think we have leverage because we export food to them that they need and they export products that are wants to us.We are delivering seed beans today. We contract out two varieties and they tell us when they are ready for them. They schedule us for a couple of days for delivery. They are busy right now getting ready for the planting season.We store our seed beans in a facility that only sees soybeans so we don’t have any corn contamination. We’re getting through hauling out the beans pretty well. Last year was our first year growing seed beans on a larger scale. We planted around 20% seed beans and we are going to again this year. We are planning on growing more next year.We are ready to go when the weather gets fit. We watch the weather and if there are decent days out in front of us we try to hit it. We do tend to favor May planting because things seem to work better in May and come up better. We always say we’re going to push it earlier but we never do. If it is after April 15 and we get a nice window we’ll go with corn, but it doesn’t look like that will happen this year.
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Sydney Snider, OCJ FFA reporterIt has been a successful year for FFA members and chapters across the Buckeye State. Membership has reached a high with over 25,000 FFA members and 315 FFA chapters. A record number of state degree recipients were awarded at the state FFA convention in May and Ohio was honored to have several national winners recognized at the national FFA convention in October.2018 also marks the 90th anniversary for the formation of the “Future Farmers of America.” Ohio has had a rich history in leading innovation and growth within FFA since it’s inception in 1928. Continue reading for a quick glimpse into the past 90 years. The initial yearsIn November of 1928, 33 vocational agriculture students met in Kansas City to form the “Future Farmers of America.” Among the students was Ashley, Ohio native Lawrence Augenstein, who helped develop the by-laws and constitution for the FFA. He also received the first American FFA Degree pin ever presented and served on the first national officer team.In February 1929, the Ohio FFA Association was officially established during a two-day meeting at The Ohio State University. The meeting was made up of 80 students from 52 Ohio Departments of Vocational Agriculture. Ohio was the 14th state to charter an association with 23 official chapters.An iconic symbol of the FFA is the blue corduroy jacket worn by members across the nation. The jacket, developed by the Fredericktown FFA Chapter, was adopted in 1933. Fredericktown is located in Knox County and is still an active FFA chapter today.A favorite location for Ohio FFA members is Ohio FFA Camp Muskingum. The Ohio FFA camp program was established in 1941 and has been going strong ever since. Continued growthAs FFA continued to grow in Ohio, a need was seen for a foundation to be established to develop support and funding for the association. So in 1957, the Ohio FFA Foundation was officially formed.Ohio continued to be ahead of the game in creating opportunities for students. In 1966, membership was opened to girls in Ohio. The national organization followed this lead just a few years later in 1969.The middle years of FFA’s growth and development saw the implementation of many new Career Development Events (CDE) and programs to help students grow in their leadership capabilities. In order to reflect the growing diversity of its membership and programs, the “Future Farmers of America” changed their name to the National FFA Organization in 1988. Other noteworthy momentsIn 2003, the Ohio FFA Association celebrated 75 years by opening a time capsule that was sealed during the 50th state FFA convention. The following year, a new time capsule was sealed and will be opened during the 100th state convention.Over the years, Ohio FFA has been proud to have countless FFA members be awarded as national winners in CDE’s, proficiency areas, and other leadership-oriented events. The Ohio FFA Association has also seen the most students elected as national FFA officers, with a total of 32. A promising futureOhio FFA has been dedicated to serving its members since day one. As agriculture, technology, and education continue to evolve and grow, so do the capabilities of Ohio FFA members and chapters. The next 90 years are sure to bring more exciting moments, awards, and growth for FFA across the Buckeye State.To learn more about the Ohio FFA Association, visit ohioffa.org.

NAGPUR: Congress leaders and the family members of a farmer who committed suicide in Yavatmal district of Maharashtra last week — after naming Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his suicide note — have demanded that an FIR be filed against the Prime Minister.Prakash Prabhakar Mangavkar, a farmer from Titavi village in Ghatanji tehsil, killed himself on September 16. He had reportedly written the words “Modi Sarkar” and “karjasathi atmahatya (suicide for debt)” on two leaves.He is survived by his wife and two children. His family demanded that Mr. Modi be booked when Congress leader Shivajirao Moghe visited them on Monday.Mangavkar’s family members told a local news channel on Monday that the farmer was “fed up” by the difficulties in filling the online application for the government’s loan waiver. “He was jubilant when Mr. Modi became the Prime Minister. He would say that now there is a leader who will stand up for farmers. But nothing happened, and he was feeling betrayed. Had Mr. Modi acted on his promises, our family would not have lost a life,” they said. Mr. Moghe told The Hindu their demand was absolutely correct. “When farmers committed suicide during our reign, Devendra Fadnavis would demand an FIR against our government. Now that a farmer has himself written the PM’s name in a suicide note, there should be an FIR against him. During the 2014 election campaign, the PM made 18 promises to farmers in Yavatmal. The farmers believed him, and voted for the BJP. Not a single promise has been fulfilled by the PM in the last three years.”Mr.Kishor Tiwari, head of the State government’s panel on farmers’ distress, however, said Mangavkar was under stress as his mini truck had hit a person and there was a complaint against him. He said that the farmer’s loan waiver application had been approved. “But it’s true that he wrote Mr. Modi’s name on a leaf,” Mr. Tiwari told The Hindu.Nana Patole, the BJP MP from Gondia-Bhandara, also visited Mangavkar’s family on Monday. “The government is taking every effort to stop farmers’ suicides. It is true that the online application process is complicated. I will brief the PM and the CM about this incident, as the people are now talking about booking the Prime Minister [for the suicide],” Mr.Patole told reporters.
