South African Communist Party supports Extraordinary China-Africa Summit on Solidarity against Covid-19
The South African Communist Party (SACP) issued this statement on June 19.The South African Communist Party (SACP) welcomes the progressive thrust of the Joint Statement of the Extraordinary China-Africa Summit on Solidarity Against Covid-19. The statement was released on Thursday, 18 June 2020, following the summit, which was attended by African Heads of State. In particular, the SACP welcomes the call for a united response to, and collaborative efforts in, the fight against the novel coronavirus (Covid-19). The summit was convened at a critical juncture in Africa’s battle against Covid-19, following a joint initiative by China, South Africa in its capacity as the Chair of the African Union, and Senegal in its capacity as the Co-Chair of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC).South African cargo handler unloads medical aid donated by China to help fight COVID-19.The commitment from the summit to jointly safeguard global public health security, protect the legitimate rights and interests of developing countries, make a greater contribution to world peace and development, and build a community of health for all is an important one. The SACP strongly supports the commitment and says: World peace and development should be bound up with justice. This must necessarily involve a decisive stand against imperialism, as well as the fight for democratic sovereignty.The African continent as a collective and the various African states, individually, must thus unshackle themselves from the legacy of colonialism [and] build a people-based healthcare system, having due regard to the relevant African conditions. The Covid-19 pandemic is one of the latest disasters to show that states that have a socialist outlook or adopted measures with socialist orientation in their responses, such as solidarity, fare much better than those that derive their guidance from the capitalist dog-eat-dog market fundamentalism.On the one hand, countries such as Cuba and China sent out medical brigades to assist other countries. This important intervention was based on solidarity. On the other hand, those that are guided by the profit, maximising greed at the expense of human life, were looking for opportunities to benefit financially from the pandemic, no matter the fatalities. As if that were not enough, the United States made use of the pandemic to intensify its imperialist aggression against other countries, such as Cuba and Venezuela, to name but a few.The SACP welcomes support for the debt service suspension initiative and stance for the lifting of sanctions endorsed by the summit. The sanctions and the unjust and unsustainable international financial institutions’ debt, interests and penalties are a serious problem in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic. The SACP, therefore, reiterates its call for the international financial institutions’ unjust and unsustainable debt, interests and penalties standing in the way of development in developing countries to be cancelled.Before Covid-19, the world was gripped by a capitalist crisis. The crisis before Covid-19 is worsening as a result of the impact of Covid-19 crisis and imperialist aggression. In addition to heightening its imperialist aggression against Venezuela and other countries, including blocking humanitarian Covid-19 aid to Cuba, the United States announced its withdrawal from the World Health Organisation.The SACP says: We cannot go back to the crisis before the crisis. The SACP calls for the various peoples of the world to unite not only against the Covid-19 but must also against capitalism.Issued by the South African Communist Party/SACPEstablished 1921 as the Communist Party of South Africa/CPSADr. Alex Mohubetswane MashiloCentral Committee Member for Media & Communications FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Indiana Agricultural Law Foundation Assists with Fence Law Case SHARE SHARE Previous articleSeed Producer Expanding in TiptonNext articleTrump Talks Beef Tariff and Japan Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter An amicus brief written by the Indiana Agricultural Law Foundation may help a farmer get a fence fixed, and clarified for all courts how the state’s fence law is written. “The reason the foundation supported Belork v. Latimer was simple: Indiana’s partition fence law statute is clear and unambiguous,” said John Shoup, executive director of foundation. “Changes to existing, well-settled law should come from the legislature, not the judiciary.”In the case, Starke County cattle farmer John Belork rebuilt half of a partition fence between his land and his grain-farming neighbors. He asked the neighbors to rebuild the other half. They refused, and township trustee, Robin Latimer, refused to require them to rebuild. Belork went to his local trial court with his case. The trial court ruled in favor of the neighbors, who had experienced damage to their fields when Belork’s cattle would escape, because they did not “use” the fence.The Indiana Partition Fence Law (Indiana Code §32-26-9) requires adjacent landowners to share the burden of building partition fences, as long as at least one property is agricultural land located outside town or city limits. There is no requirement that both property owners benefit from or use the fence.Shoup added that a partition is a “use” under Indiana’s partition fence law, and there is no statutory requirement that adjoining landowners both raise livestock.Belork appealed to the Indiana Court of Appeals, where he was initially denied. He petitioned for a rehearing. The court agreed to the rehearing and allowed the foundation to file an amicus curiae (“friend of the court”) brief in support of his petition. The foundation’s brief explained the history and use of the law.“After considering the arguments we offered, the Indiana Court of Appeals reversed their own contrary decision. This is an extremely rare occurrence,” Shoup said.The appeals court ruled that the neighbors had misinterpreted the law, and that both parties having “use” of the fence was not required. In fact, the law is very specific that use or benefit of the fence is not a factor in determining how a fence is maintained. One judge dissented, arguing that the majority gave too much weight to the brief and should have relied more on arguments presented by the parties.Belork’s neighbors have the opportunity to appeal the decision.

ReddIt World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution The TCU women’s soccer team celebrates their victory over West Virginia to clinch their first-ever Big 12 Championship. (Jack Wallace/Staff Photographer) Twitter Facebook printWhen discussing the status of a school’s athletic program, topics like bowl games, March Madness, the College World Series and other highlights of men’s sports teams often come to mind.For TCU, recent success in these areas has been sparse. The football team squeaked into a bowl game last fall, but they haven’t been ranked for more than a week since 2017. The basketball team hasn’t punched a ticket to the big dance since 2017, and this year they likely won’t even make the National Invitation Tournament. Even the heralded Horned Frog baseball squad has not been to the College World Series in four years.Considering these statistics, TCU Athletics appears to be failing. However, that could not be further from the truth.Carrying the load of respect and prestige for TCU sports right now are the women’s teams. Despite the fact that their combined social media followings add up to less than a fourth of that of TCU football alone, just as many of them have seen team success, unprecedented individual performances, or both.Here’s a rundown of the different teams and individuals who have been showing out for women’s sports at TCU during the 2020-2021 seasons.SoccerBig 12 titles are few-and-far-between for the Horned Frogs, as they’ve only won 12 since joining the conference in 2012 (nine coming from baseball and men’s tennis).In fact, most teams at TCU have never won a Big 12 title. That all changed for TCU women’s soccer this fall.Read More: TCU soccer makes history: A look into their record seasonAfter tying 0-0 in a defensive battle with Baylor in their first game, the Frogs won eight straight games to end the season, cruising through the season without much pushback and winning their first-ever Big 12 Championship.All season, TCU gave up just three goals, as seven of their nine matches ended in them shutting out their opponents.The final touches on the season came in the conference championship game, where sophomore forward Grace Collins nailed her third straight game-winner to lead the Frogs to a 1-0 victory over the West Virginia Mountaineers.After the season, TCU won four of five player of the year awards in the Big 12 conference, and forward Yazmeen Ryan was drafted 6th overall in the NWSL draft to the Portland Thorns FC (highest pick in TCU history).Ranked No. 4 in the country, the Frogs now have six games scheduled to play this spring before heading to the NCAA tournament at the end of April.RifleAfter winning a national title in 2019, TCU rifle looked primed to defend their title again in 2020 before the NCAA Championships were cancelled because of COVID-19.Back in action in 2021, the Frogs looked like they had not skipped a beat, tearing through their opponents to finish with an impressive 11-0 record and head into the NCAA Championship ranked third nationally.TCU Rifle finished second nationally following a perfect 2021 regular season. (Photo courtesy of gofrogs.com)TCU’s 11 straight wins included one over Akron and two over Air Force, both of who ranked in the top 10 at the end of the regular season.It’s important to note that though NCAA rifle is a co-ed sport, the TCU team is made up entirely of women.Though the Frogs were unable to defend their title, they came about as close as you can get, winning the air rifle title and narrowly dropping smallbore to finish second to Kentucky by just nine points.After winning air rifle with a near-perfect score of 598, sophomore Stephanie Grundsoee finished second overall in the individual rankings with an aggregate score of 1188.With just one senior on their roster, the Frogs look more than equipped to compete for yet another national title in 2022.Beach VolleyballThe TCU beach volleyball team has been through the gauntlet thus far this season, facing nine ranked opponents in the last 16 days.The Frogs have held their own, though, winning five of those matchups and holding a 10-3 overall record nearing the midway point of their season.TCU is currently ranked ninth nationally, as they work towards the CCSA Championships and NCAA Championships in late April and May, respectively. EquestrianRanked 7th in the country (2nd in the Big 12 behind No. 3 Oklahoma State), TCU equestrian recently wrapped up their season with a regular season record of 5-4. Two of those losses came in close bouts with opponents ranked in the top five.Sporting their highest regular season win percentage since the 2012-2013 season (.556), the Frogs have locked in the three seed for the upcoming Big 12 Championships, which are scheduled for March 26 and 27.Women’s GolfTCU women’s golf has been on a tear this season, finishing in the top seven in each of their five tournaments. They have finished tied for second twice, with the first coming in the Schooner Fall Classic and the second coming a month ago at the Lamkin Invitational.The Frogs are now ranked 23rd in the country.TCU’s Lauren Heard averaged just shy of 22 points per game on her way to All-Big 12 First Team honors following the 2020-2021 season. (Photo courtesy of gofrogs.com)Women’s BasketballIn the 2020-2021 season, TCU women’s basketball was not a story of team success but of individual dominance. Though the Frogs were able to win a game in the Big 12 tournament (something the men’s team was unable to do), they finished just 5-14 overall in conference games. Amidst team struggles, senior guard Lauren Heard was unstoppable all year. A member of the preseason Naismith Award Watch List, the guard boasted 21.7 points, seven rebounds, five assists, and 2.6 steals per game (all career-highs) in route to All-Big 12 First Team honors.Indoor VolleyballAs a team, the Frogs are struggling this year, with just one win in 15 matches this season.Despite TCU’s losing record, libero/defensive specialist Dani Dennison has continued to be lights-out defensively, reaching third on the TCU all-time digs list with 1,289 in her career. She needs just 45 to reach Katelyn Blackwood in second.Track and FieldFrog fans should keep an eye on sophomore high jumper Jill Johnson. As a freshman, she set a school record with a 1.81m high jump and later earned a silver medal at the Big 12 Championships before the team’s season was cut short by COVID-19.

Share Save in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Following 11 years under government control, and becoming a “whipping post” for the financial crisis, Forbes latest commentary surrounding GSE reforms suggest America is about to do the right thing for housing finance reform. The analysis, written by Tim Pagliara, chronicles the history of the GSEs, from the “surprise move” in September 2008 when they were placed under government control, to Fannie Mae’s inception in 1938, as a way to buy loans from the banks and create longer terms for repayment, and thus, the 30-year mortgage was born.“Today, the GSEs provide mortgage liquidity in much the same way they did in 1938. Both Fannie and Freddie buy mortgages from banks and re-package them for sale to insurance companies and pension funds that rely on predictable income to offset the liabilities for pension and annuity payments,” Pagliara said. The Forbes piece continues by saying the chief financial officer of the GSEs briefed the Treasury and FHFA in 2012, saying the GSEs were “so profitable that they would have to reverse the DTAs,” which were the basis of the conservatorship. Additionally, instead of allowing the GSEs to pay back the government and become private, Treasury officials planned a scheme to sweep 100% of their earnings and profits in an amendment to the original preferred purchase agreement, known as the Third Amendment Sweep. “Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and FHFA director Ed DeMarco justified the move by telling the world that the GSEs continued to languish in a death spiral and would never return to profitability,” Pagliara says. What came next, on September 5, 2019, was Collins v. Mnuchin in the Fifth Circuit in an en banc hearing found that the government violated the Administrative Procedures Act. The court found that email communication from Obama administration advisor Jim Parrott as evidence that the government “acted in bad faith” and contrary to their mission to protect assets as conservator. All this has led to FHFA Director Mark Calabria announcing that The U.S. Department of the Treasury and the FHFA recently announced that they had agreed to modifications to the Preferred Stock Purchase Agreements (PSPAs) that will permit Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to retain additional earnings in excess of the $3 billion capital reserves currently permitted by their PSPAs.These modifications are an important step toward implementing Treasury’s recommended reforms that will define a limited role for the Federal Government in the housing finance system and protect taxpayers against future bailouts,” said U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin.To compensate Treasury for the dividends that it would have received absent these modifications, Treasury’s liquidation preferences for its Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac preferred stock will gradually increase by the amount of the additional capital reserves until the liquidation preferences increase by $22 billion for Fannie Mae and $17 billion for Freddie Mac.
