Trump Talks Trade with South Korea

first_img President Donald Trump met with the new President of South Korea on Friday and opened up the session with tough trade talk. Trump announced that he will be renegotiating a trade agreement with South Korea that has already been in place for five years. The agreement is a co-legacy for both Presidents Bush and Obama which had broad Congressional support when it was approved. At the same time Trump made the announcement, the U.S. is looking for help from South Korea to contain the nuclear threat from North Korea. Trump called it, “A rough deal for the United States, but I think it will be much different and will benefit both parties.”South Korean President Moon Jae-in said nothing to give the impression that a renegotiation was already underway. He calls it a beneficial agreement to both countries, while also saying the two countries can address specific concerns. Trump complained in the past about the trade deficit with South Korea, which totaled $17 billion dollars in 2016. While Trump wants to redo or even end the agreement, it is important to remember that South Korea is the sixth-largest overseas trading partner for the U.S. The two countries traded more than $112 billion dollars worth of goods last year.Source: NAFB News Service SHARE Trump Talks Trade with South Korea Facebook Twitter SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – Jul 4, 2017 Home Indiana Agriculture News Trump Talks Trade with South Korea Facebook Twitter Previous articleFarm Work as Therapy for Troubled YouthNext articleDow AgroSciences Helping Farmers in Kenya Hoosier Ag Todaylast_img read more

And if it is true, I would like, on M23’s behalf, to present my apologies to the journalists who have been threatened, and I promise to conduct enquiries to verify these allegations, and we will punish those responsible.”Runiga was reacting to the joint letter that RWB and JED had sent him the previous day urging him to disown the threats and comments by certain M23 officials targeting journalists in M23-controlled territory. RWB and JED also asked him to use his prerogatives to guarantee the safety of Jean-Baptiste Kambale, the manager of a community radio station based in Rutshuru.M23 representatives threatened Kambale in September, accusing him of helping the French television station TV5 Monde to make a series of reports showing mistreatment of the civilian population and other human rights violations by M23 troops.

He was threatened on 25 September by this territory’s administrator, Benjamin Sibomango, who accused him of facilitating the TV5 Monde crew’s work.He also received a call from the administrator of the Rutshuru territory, who expressed the following death threat: “You led the Whites to Rutshuru for them to criticize us. You know we are rebels. For us, killing someone is not a big deal.”The next day, it was M23 spokesman Vianney Kazarama who openly expressed his discontent with the journalist over the French TV channel’s reports, calling him an “enemy” paid by the government in Kinshasa to sully M23’s image. He was back on the offensive against the journalist on 15 October, accusing him of having trapped him and abused his good faith.As a result of all these direct threats, Mr. Kambale is now in hiding and fears for his life and that of his family.In view of the above, RWB and JED urge you to clearly disown the threats that have been made against journalists and to use all your prerogatives in order to guarantee Mr. Kambale’s physical safety. We further ask you to put a stop to all the acts of intimidation and harassment against RACOU’s journalists.Our two organizations will in any case hold the M23 armed movement, which you lead, responsible for anything unfortunate that may befall this journalist and his family.We thank you in advance for taking account of our request.Sincerely, Journalist arrested on provincial governor’s orderslast_img read more

NCAA clears way for athletes to earn money from names, likenesses

first_imgOctober 29, 2019 /Sports News – National NCAA clears way for athletes to earn money from names, likenesses FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailjetcityimage/iStock(NEW YORK) — The NCAA Board of Governors broke with the long-held tradition of forbidding student-athletes from earning income on Tuesday by voting unanimously to allow them to profit from their names, images and likenesses.The board, which framed the historic vote as part of its continuing effort to “support college athletes, also said it would direct each of the NCAA’s three divisions to “immediately consider updates to relevant bylaws and policies for the 21st Century,” Michael Drake, chairman of the board and president of Ohio State University, said in a statement.“We embrace change to provide the best possible experience for college athletes,” Drake added. “Additional flexibility in this area can and must continue to support college sports as part of higher education.”The board’s vote came after California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed into law in September a measure allowing college athletes in his state to profit from their names, images and likenesses.Illinois lawmakers also were considering similar legislation.Colleges reap billions from student athletes but block them from earning a single dollar. That’s a bankrupt model.I just signed the Fair Play to Pay Act with @KingJames — making CA the first state to allow student athletes to profit off their name, image, and likeness. pic.twitter.com/aWE9OL9r1v— Gavin Newsom (@GavinNewsom) September 30, 2019“This modernization for the future is a natural extension of the numerous steps NCAA members have taken in recent years to improve support for student-athletes, including the full cost of attendance and guaranteed scholarships,” Drake said.The board’s action Tuesday was based on “comprehensive recommendations” from the NCAA Board of Governors Federal and State Legislation Working Group, which is composed of university presidents, commissioners, athletic directors, administrators and student-athletes.The board emphasized that college athletes can profit from their image and likeness “in a manner consistent with the collegiate model.”NCAA President Mark Emmert said the board’s decision will “ensure fairness and a level playing field” for student-athletes.“The board’s action today creates a path to enhance opportunities for student-athletes while ensuring they compete against students and not professionals,” Emmert said in a statement.Earlier this year in a letter to the California State Assembly, Emmert had warned of severe consequences for the state’s colleges and universities for passing such legislation, threatening to prohibit athletic teams from participating in NCAA championships.But the California Assembly went on to overwhelmingly passed the legislation, a move that was praised by NBA star LeBron James.Everyone is California- call your politicians and tell them to support SB 206! This law is a GAME CHANGER. College athletes can responsibly get paid for what they do and the billions they create.— LeBron James (@KingJames) September 5, 2019“Colleges reap billions from student-athletes but block them from earning a single dollar. That’s a bankrupt model,” Newsom tweeted on the day he announced he had signed the legislation.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved. Beau Lundcenter_img Written bylast_img read more
