Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest While the White House weighs options, the EPA continues to undermine and mess with the RFS, granting questionable RFS waivers to refiners with no transparency and failing to provide regulatory parity for higher blends of ethanol. The EPA continues to check-off the items on Big-Oil’s wish list while gutting corn and ethanol demand and undermining the President’s commitment to the RFS in the process. National Corn Growers Association and state corn growers sent this letter to EPA this week.It’s time for EPA and the White House to consider real solutions, including RVP parity that would allow year-round sales of blends greater than 10 percent. The oil industry has already gotten a gift from the EPA. Since these discussions about capping RIN prices started in January, RIN prices have fallen 50 percent. Corn farmers and their allies need to tell the President that ‘enough is enough.’It is time for EPA to stop the backdoor reductions to the RFS and time for higher blends of ethanol to receive RVP parity. NCGA urges farmers and their friends to reach out to President Trump and their Members of Congress today and make their voices heard.
File this under: Things we didn’t even know we wanted. German graphic designer Eric Huismann got some attention this week after releasing concept art for a sleek Apple drone.All images from quadrocopter.orgBetween Amazon’s delivery bots and Zuckerberg’s fleet of flying Facebook machines, tech companies are finding reasons to get into the drone business. That’s why it was really no surprise when images of a new Apple Quadcopter started making their way around the web this week.Of course, the concept art didn’t come from Apple. Rather, they were the work of German graphic designer Eric Huismann. Huismann certainly captured the curves and elegant style that the public expects from Apple’s design team, but the mocked-up machine has more than good looks.Huismann’s quadcopter concept comes with four video cameras that can record in concert, capturing and streaming real-time HD panoramic footage from high in the air. Considering YouTube and Facebook’s recent embrace of 360 degree video, this iDrone’s multi-camera design makes perfect sense.Unfortunately, fans of Apple gear will just have to settle for the Apple Watch and new MacBook, since, again, this is just a concept. Nonetheless, we’ll keep our eyes on the Cupertino skies and hope that Tim Cook decides to take Apple in a new high-flying direction.How long would you wait in line at the Apple Store to score an iDrone? What concepts would you like to see Apple explore in the future? Let us know in the comments below.

The Bundesliga champions are very keen to sign the teenage forward, who is struggling for first team opportunities at Stamford Bridge.Hudson-Odoi has impressed whenever he has featured for Chelsea this season, including assists for both goals in the 2-0 FA Cup win over Nottingham Forest. However he is not a regular starter for Chelsea and with Christian Pulisic set to arrive from Borussia Dortmund next summer, his chances look likely to become even more scarce.

email@example.com APTN News Six people have been appointed to a new federal interim board aimed at advancing reconciliation.Grand Chief Wilton Littlechild will chair the interim board of directors that will be tasked with developing the National Council for Reconciliation.Littlechild is a former commissioner of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission that recommended the council as part of its 94 recommendations or Calls to Action.Max FineDay, Mike DeGagné, Clint Davis, Edith Cloutier, and Jean Teillet will also make up the board of directors.The board members will spend the next six months talking to stakeholders to come up with recommendations to develop the council and the endowment of a National Reconciliation Trust.“Reconciliation is not just an Indigenous issue, it’s a Canadian one, and it will take genuine collaboration at all levels to advance this journey,” said Carolyn Bennett, minister of Crown-Indigenous relations, in a statement.Bennett also held a news conference in the foyer of the House of Commons to announce the board.Littlechild said a lot has been done to promote reconciliation since the TRC released its report in 2015.“However, there is no coordinating or monitoring mechanism,” he said in a statement. “I look forward with interest to the establishment of a council who will be influential in the increased engagement of the rest of Canada. True reconciliation requires all of us working together.”
Gustavo Hofman of ESPN believes Croatia clash will be a useful test for Brazil and pointed out that Croatia has more in its coffers to offer technically than Serbia, according to Goal.“They are a very technical side, they have a great midfield, Tite is a big fan of Modric for example, a confessed admirer of Real Madrid’s midfielder. The CBF’s hope in arranging a friendly against Croatia is to mirror the Serbia game, except that Croatia are more technical and Serbia are physically stronger.“I like the Croatia team a lot, they will make Brazil work hard. The Selecao is better than Croatia, but they are a time that will come out and attack more than Serbia, who are more defence-minded.”Euro 2020 Qualifiers Betting: 06/09/19 Stuart Heath – September 6, 2019 With the international break in full-swing, here at Ronaldo.com we are going to take a look at Thursday’s Euro 2020 qualifiers match-betting odds.With a…Modric has demonstrated and is clearly the standard-bearer of the Balkans side, however, coach Zlatko Dalic can also call on talents like Ivan Rakitic, Mateo Kovacic, Mario Mandzukic and Ivan Perisic to name just a few.Brazil will take on Croatia on Sunday at 11 am Brasilia time (3 pm BST), in Liverpool’s Anfield home.

The Lincoln club manager believes he learned the trade thanks to being away from the English Football Leagues for many yearsDanny Cowley has managed Lincoln for a while, and he’s grateful about learning the trade outside of the English Football Leagues for many years.The Sky Bet League Two manager spoke to Sky Sports on what he learned during all this time.“I’ll forever be appreciative of that grounding, it’s been a brilliant learning curve and certainly allowed me to learn the job, develop my skillset away from the pressure you get in professional football,” he said.“It allowed me to make mistakes, behind closed doors in a sense, and to find my style. It’s benefited my management and it’s been really good – I’d recommend it to anyone.”Cowley explains why he changed his mind about Huddersfield Manuel R. Medina – September 9, 2019 Last week Danny Cowley rejected the chance to coach Huddersfield Town in the English Championship, but today he accepted saying it was a good opportunity.“I look at Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard who have had brilliant playing careers and then taken on really high-profile jobs, and it must be tough for them to try to learn about the role under such pressure and scrutiny,” he added.“Everyone talks about football philosophy, I’ve never thought it was as complicated as having a philosophy, I think it’s about having some values.”“We have a set of values which we try to stick by and live by, on a daily basis, we try to work relatively hard, but tactically we’re quite flexible because I think you have to be,” he continued.“In the lower leagues you generally inherit players of all shapes and sizes, different profiles, and you have to try to find a way of playing for the players you have at your disposal.”
The Real Madrid fans have spoken in all fronts, they overwhelmingly want Santiago Solari to keep his job as the first squad manager from now on.The deadline for Santiago Solari as the Real Madrid manager is right around the corner, his last match as the interim manager will be against Celta and the fan base has decided that they want him to stay as the boss for the rest of the season.The three wins in three matches from three different competitions were enough, scoring eleven goals with a clean sheet was more than enough for an important part of the fans to decide that the Argentine boss is the ideal man to salvage the season at such an early stage.Many Spanish media outlets from the city of Madrid have conducted their own polls this week after Los Blancos defeated Viktoria Plzen in the Champions League in such a convincing fashion, the ones who voted loved what they saw from Santiago Solari and most are willing to give the man a chance to prove that he is a great manager who can take Los Blancos to yet another trophy-winning season.In order to keep the information from any poll as trustworthy as possible, we decided to only take the numbers from a single news outlet that conducted a poll this Thursday and is also one of the most respected sources in Spain.Santiago Solari has the big job at Real Madrid for now, but the race for a permanent manager is still alive | @DeanJonesBR: https://t.co/tpJJVDlVBB pic.twitter.com/N6QlXKFiFW— B/R Football (@brfootball) November 8, 2018Diario AS took the liberty to ask a good 56.535 readers from their publication about Solari, they wanted to know how many of them wanted the Argentine manager to get the job as the manager for the rest of the season at least.The response from the readers was swift and convincing, as a staggering 82% of people have voted for Santiago Solari’s appointment as the new manager.We also have a feeling that this number will go up even more if Los Blancos manage to defeat Celta de Vigo in Balaidos, doing that would really get Santiago Solari that hot seat and it would prove that he is capable of making the squad win away again despite any complication that presents itself.But the main reason why Solari has mostly won the respect and adoration from the fans and the board members, has a lot more to do with the gambles that the manager made in the little time he had to maneuver as the Real Madrid manager.There were at least three complicated choices he made, that ultimately gave the advantage because he was fortunate enough to get positive results after making such decisions.Solari has impressed at @realmadridenAnd his positioned has been strengthenedTop 10 players who played for both Barcelona and Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to talk about the best players who represented both Barcelona and Valencia, prior to their La Liga encounter at Camp Nou this evening.Could he get the job permanently?🤔https://t.co/JqVVJmpij1 pic.twitter.com/lT8tr1yKRg— MARCA in English (@MARCAinENGLISH) November 9, 2018We will start with the goalkeeper problem, a dilemma that even manager Julen Lopetegui wanted to avoid and Zinedine Zidane predicted since last season.For some strange reason, Florentino Perez doesn’t want Keylor Navas as the main goalkeeper in the club and has been trying to replace him for several years without success.Now that the president doesn’t have anyone to contradict him, buying Courtois was only the beginning of the end for the Costa Rica international and Solari made the right choice by leaving him on the bench for the two important matches.Fortunately for the boss, the gamble paid off as Los Blancos have a clean sheet with Thibaut as the goalie.The other gamble was a safer one with Vinicius Junior, a young talent who will inevitably become a great player and has responded perfectly to Solari’s trust after Lopetegui humiliated him in front of everybody.So far in the three matches he’s played, Vini already provided two assists and scored a goal that has at least granted him the chance of maybe getting more minutes against Celta in order to completely save the job for Solari once and for all.Solari to make closing argument for revived Madrid job https://t.co/ayk0l8oZ6l pic.twitter.com/RjO4tvI9ol— Cleansheet (@Cleansheet) November 9, 2018What the decision that Florentino will make in regards to Santiago Solari’s future in Real Madrid?
