Enviros Appeal EPA Action

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Todd NeeleyDTN Staff ReporterOMAHA (DTN) — EPA decided in July not to ban the insecticide chlorpyrifos, and now, environmental groups have petitioned the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in Seattle to review that decision.In July, EPA said it will expedite what is an ongoing review of chlorpyrifos in response to public concerns raised. The agency has until 2022 to complete its review.Groups filing the petition include the League of United Latin American Citizens; Pesticide Action Network North America; Natural Resources Defense Council; California Rural Legal Assistance Foundation; Farmworker Association of Florida; Farmworker Justice; Labor Council for Latin American Advancement; Learning Disabilities Association of America; National Hispanic Medical Association Pineros y Campesinos Unidos del Noroeste; and United Farm Workers.“EPA has repeatedly found chlorpyrifos unsafe, especially to children, yet time and time again it refuses to protect kids,” said Patti Goldman, the Earthjustice managing attorney leading the case. “But Earthjustice and our clients won’t stand for this. The science and the law call for a chlorpyrifos ban. We are hopeful the courts will do the same for the sake of children and farmworkers.”The EPA had until July 18 to address objections to its 2007 decision rejecting a petition asking for a ban. The deadline was set as part of a court order issued on April 19, 2019, by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in San Francisco.Chlorpyrifos is the main ingredient in Corteva Agriscience’s Lorsban insecticide, which targets soybean aphids, spider mites and corn rootworm.The EPA has consistently maintained available science supports the human safety of chlorpyrifos, while environmental groups continue to say it is unsafe for humans.An EPA spokesperson told DTN in July that the agency may at some point place new restrictions on chlorpyrifos.The legal pursuit aimed at chlorpyrifos began in 2007 when the Pesticide Action Network North America and the Natural Resources Defense Council petitioned EPA to cancel the insecticide’s registrations.The EPA denied the petition and said at the time that farmers need chlorpyrifos, and the agency uses “sound science” when making decisions.The agency’s rejection of the 2007 petition was a surprising reversal from the stance of the EPA under the Obama administration, which had indicated as recently as fall 2016 that it was prepared to issue a full ban on the pesticide.Todd Neeley can be reached at [email protected] him on Twitter @toddneeleyDTN(BAS/CZ)© Copyright 2019 DTN/The Progressive Farmer.

3D Viewing ‘Returns’ to Google Books; Eyeballs Plead for Mercy

first_imgTags:#Google#web Back on April 1, Google introduced 3D viewing to its online book reader, Google Books, but the feature was short-lived. In fact, it was down the next day. As was obvious at the time, Google was having some April Fool’s Day fun with the Web, rolling out 3D in Street View at the same time. Today, 9 months from the next April Fool’s Day, with an announcement that can filed in the “Huh?” category, Google has reintroduced 3D viewing in Google Books. “On April 1st we launched a 3D viewing mode on Google Books. We took the feature down on April 2nd in order to focus our efforts on a 4D version,” Google said jokingly today in a blog post. “That effort failed miserably, but I’m happy to announce that we’ve gone back and enabled the 3D version of Google Books for your viewing pleasure via a special URL parameter. To see any book in 3D, just add &edge=3d to the book’s URL (Note: be sure to add this parameter before the # in the URL).” A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts Back on April Fool’s Day, 3D viewing was accessed from a button within the Google Books app, and now the feature has returned as a URL hack Easter egg. It’s pretty clear Google doesn’t really expect people to read text in 3D – reading is tough enough on the eyes already – but they obviously think it’s fun to leave it in. When viewing in 3D, the text becomes an anaglyphic image and is bent to give the appearance of a rounded book page. Any pair of red-cyan 3D glasses should work, Google says.While Google is clearly having some fun here, does this bring up a larger question about 3D? Are books a viable market for 3D technology? This writer respectfully disagrees with anyone that says they are, at least until 3D technology improves. Then again, I’m more inclined to listen to an audiobook these days than read a physical book, so perhaps a little glitz and sparkle is what the printed (or digital) page needs. Follow this link to see an example of 3D viewing in Google Books, and leave us your thoughts on 3D reading in the comments. And if someone has 3D glasses on them, let us know what you think of the Google Books 3D experience. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market chris cameron Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostinglast_img read more

Live on Net

first_imgIn Delhi’s Feroze Shah Kotla stadium that hosted the India vs Netherlands match on March 9, prying reporters kept an eye on the box from where an Internet radio broadcast a commentary. The commentary was not important. There was buzz that Sunil Gavaskar and Kapil Dev would share space in the glasshouse. The two former Indian skippers are not best friends though both try hard to underplay their days of differences. The much-awaited commentary eventually did not happen because Gavaskar was stuck elsewhere. BJP leader and top DDCA member, Arun Jaitley, shared space with Kapil Dev.Channel 2 Group’s internet radio platform for cricket, www.cricketfreeq.com, was launched by Kapil Dev in Mumbai recently. With Kapil Dev, Gavaskar and West Indies veteran Clive Lloyd as commentators and prizes worth over $1 million, the channel is making news among cricket-crazy NRIs. The magic is already working. For the India vs England match, 45,000 users visited the site. The number of visitors more than doubled during the India vs South Africa match. “By the end of the World Cup, we hope to have three lakh users, of which 60 per cent will be from India,” says Ajay Sethi who heads the Dubai-based Channel 2. He is being realistic about his Rs 135 crore investment and confident that it will help him to emerge as the world’s largest sports Internet radio player by 2015.Sethi does not want to rest here. He has acquired broadcast rights for events such as the English Premier League and Dutch League (Football), Rugby World Cup, Wimbledon, Australian Open and US Open (Tennis) and major pro Golf tours such as US PGA, The Masters, and Ryders.advertisementlast_img read more
