Aung San Suu Kyi and Australian academic Sean Turnell who served as her adviser have been sentenced to three years in prison after a closed trial in Myanmar, according to reports.

Turnell, an economist at Macquarie University in Sydney, was first arrested last year on February 6, days after the military toppled Myanmar’s elected government, throwing the country into chaos.

Turnell was later accused of violating Myanmar’s official secrets law and over the past year has appeared alongside co-defendants including the ousted leader and three of her former cabinet members.

A source, who declined to be named due to the sensitivity of the issue, told Reuters that Turnell and the ousted leader were sentenced to “three years each, without hard labour”. Both had pleaded not guilty.

Australian Foreign Minister Penny Wong rejected the court’s decision and called for Turnell’s immediate release.

“Professor Turnell was tried behind closed doors – the Australian Chargé d’Affaires and consular officials in Myanmar made every effort to attend the verdict but were denied access to court,” Wong said.

“We will continue to take every opportunity to strongly defend Professor Turnell until he returns to his family in Australia. We acknowledge the strong international support for him, including from our region. »

There is very little information on legal proceedings involving political prisoners in Myanmar, where more than 15,600 people have been arrested since last year’s coup. Hearings are not accessible to journalists and defense lawyers have been gagged for not speaking to the media.

Aung San Suu Kyi had previously been sentenced to 20 years in prison for separate cases and is still facing trials.

The military accused Turnell of possessing confidential documents when he was arrested last year, according to the Irrawaddy news site. Turnell reportedly denied the charge and said the documents were not confidential but were economic recommendations he had given in his capacity as an adviser to Aung San Suu Kyi’s government.

The case against him has been widely condemned by rights groups.

Elaine Pearson, Asia director at Human Rights Watch, said the sentences handed down were a “cruel injustice”.

“The junta’s willingness to impose sentences on Aung San Suu Kyi, as well as Australian economist Sean Turnell and three of his ministers, shows that the Burmese military has no qualms about its pariah status international.

“The governments concerned should take this as a clear signal that they must take concerted action against the junta if they are to reverse the human rights situation in the country,” she said. Turnell had been denied proper access to counsel, she added.

Turnell has worked on economic and banking issues in Myanmar since the early 2000s, focusing on promoting reform and growth. He served as special economic consultant to Aung San Suu Kyi and senior economic adviser to the Minister of Planning, Finance and Industry. Prior to that, he worked at the Reserve Bank of Australia.

Last month, as UN special envoy to Myanmar Noeleen Heyzer met with junta leader Min Aung Hlaing to call for a de-escalation of violence in the country, she also conveyed a demand from the Australian government calling for Turnell’s release.

The junta-controlled media later published what they claimed was a transcript of their meeting, in which Min Aung Hlaing said: “In relation to the case of Mr Sean Turnell, if the Australian government takes positive, we would not need to take drastic measures. Shares. In the case of Mr. Sean Turnell, the evidence shows that severe penalties could be imposed.

At least 15,683 people have been arrested since the army seized power in a coup on February 1, 2021, and 12,540 remain in detention, according to the Association for Assistance to Political Prisoners, which tracks arrests and murders.

Other foreign nationals detained include former British ambassador to Myanmar Vicky Bowman and Toru Kubota, a Japanese filmmaker.

A family is still searching for the truth 15 years after the murder of a Japanese journalist in Myanmar https://elktractors.com/a-family-is-still-searching-for-the-truth-15-years-after-the-murder-of-a-japanese-journalist-in-myanmar/ Tue, 27 Sep 2022 07:02:53 +0000 https://elktractors.com/a-family-is-still-searching-for-the-truth-15-years-after-the-murder-of-a-japanese-journalist-in-myanmar/ A stone monument with a portrait of the late journalist Kenji Nagai and a drawing depicting his video camera is seen in Imabari, Ehime Prefecture, on September 7, 2022.

IMABARI, Ehime — September 27 marks the 15th anniversary of the day Japanese video journalist Kenji Nagai was shot dead in Myanmar by military regime security forces while covering a protest.

The Myanmar military has still not issued an apology to the family of Nagai, who was 50 when he died in September 2007, and his video camera also remains confiscated. In Myanmar, the military seized power following a coup in 2021, derailing the country’s democratic transition. Meanwhile, the truth behind the fatal incident has yet to be uncovered.

In early September, Nagai’s younger sister, Noriko Ogawa, 62, quietly joined her hands in prayer at a cemetery in the western Japanese town of Imabari, Ehime Prefecture. “It’s become an age where a lot of young people don’t know you. As long as I live, I won’t give up getting to the bottom (of your death).”

Ogawa said that for the past 15 years, she “lived by repressing anger.” His mother Michiko Nagai, who died in 2013 at the age of 80, had demanded that the Myanmar government “immediately return the camera held by ‘Kenbo’ (nickname ‘Kenji’) until the end”.

Pro-democracy forces led by Aung San Suu Kyi formed a new government in 2016, and Ogawa hoped that would lead to progress in his brother’s case. She sent a letter through an acquaintance, but did not receive a clear response. The situation worsened after the February 2021 military coup. In July 2022, four pro-democracy activists convicted of political crimes were executed. Ogawa said with drooping shoulders, “My brother’s situation is quite hopeless now.” She expressed sympathy for documentary filmmaker Toru Kubota, who is still being held by Myanmar army security forces after covering an anti-army protest. Ogawa said, “I pray that he can return home safely.”

Meanwhile, Win Kyaw, 57, who escaped from Myanmar to Japan in 1989 and attended Nagai’s funeral in Tokyo in October 2007, hailed the late journalist’s efforts saying: “There are many of Burmese who still know Kenji Nagai today. the world’s attention on Burma. He continues to live in me like a hero.

Win Kyaw uses social media in his spare time to gather information about the Burma Army’s acts of oppression against the people following the 2021 coup. He sent videos and photos showing the acts violent and brutal from the army to the United Nations.

On September 27, the anniversary of Nagai’s death, the state funeral of former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was held. The Japanese Foreign Ministry invited delegates from Myanmar, a gesture effectively extended to the military alone, excluding the pro-democracy side. Win Kyaw criticized the Japanese government and commented: “Many Burmese citizens are fighting without yielding to the violence of the army in order to restore democracy. Inviting the army contradicts the principle of the state funeral of protecting democracy (claimed by Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida).”

According to the Association for Assistance to Political Prisoners, 2,316 people have been killed and 12,464 people are still in detention as of September 23, 2022, as part of the military crackdown since the February 2021 coup.

According to the BBC and other sources, official guests from Myanmar were not invited to Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral on September 19.

Wallaby injuries and casualties rise as they seek to regroup | Latest rugby news https://elktractors.com/wallaby-injuries-and-casualties-rise-as-they-seek-to-regroup-latest-rugby-news/ Sun, 25 Sep 2022 02:39:59 +0000 https://elktractors.com/wallaby-injuries-and-casualties-rise-as-they-seek-to-regroup-latest-rugby-news/ Second best in all areas by their own admission, the Wallabies must now regroup after another bombardment of Eden Park to take on the powerhouse of European rugby.

Second best in all areas by their own admission, the Wallabies must now regroup after another bombardment of Eden Park to take on the powerhouse of European rugby.

Australia were beaten 40-14 in Auckland on Saturday night and face stark scrutiny for their failings.

“I think our preparation has been excellent…and the All Blacks have overshadowed us everywhere,” admitted coach Dave Rennie.

It could have been worse for the Wallabies, down 32-0 with 20 minutes left to put the All Blacks within a converted try by the biggest trans-Tasman margin in 119 years of competition.

Avoiding this ignominy does not save face, and Rennie knows it. Asked to describe the positives of their last trip to Eden Park – their 23rd successive loss to the All Blacks at the feared venue in 36 years – Rennie differed.

“I’ll let you know in about two or three days, when I’ve looked into that,” he said.

“We tried to rush them and stress them out, but we couldn’t.”

Rennie’s winning record in three years at the helm now stands at 38%.

With Australia ranked ninth in the world, Rennie has a month to recalibrate for a European tour of Scotland, France, Italy, Ireland and Wales.

He will make this trip without a wealth of talent and experience.

Marika Koroibete is not available, she must return to Japan in club.

Bernard Foley, who Rennie said was knocked out in Saturday’s loss, could join him, although the Wallabies are negotiating with Kubota Spears to keep him.

Lalakai Foketi suffered a shoulder injury at Eden Park and will not play again this year, joining Samu Kerevi, Quade Cooper, Izaia Perese and Rob Leota in the long-term injury department.

Rennie ruled out changes to his fitness and conditioning team, calling them “among the best in the world”, blaming the injuries on collisions.

It’s unclear if Scott Sio, who suffered a hamstring injury in last week’s 39-37 loss to Melbourne, will recover; Michael Hooper is a “wait and see” after his personal leave, and Tom Banks is likely, but not certain, to return.

Wallabies fans might think these games, especially against world No.1 Ireland and No.2 France, might get ugly.

Rennie has another word for the daunting prospect.

“Exciting, hey,” he said. “That’s why we’re doing it…it’s a tough tour.

“When you play a lot of football with a lot of young men, the more we play the better it is before a World Cup year.”

Captain James Slipper says he has “a lot of hope” for the France-hosted tournament.

“The beauty of the last three years is that we’ve been able to bloody quite a few Wallabies and they will continue to grow,” he said.

“But the biggest aspect we need to improve is consistency. We manage to put in a good performance and then back it up with a bad one.

“We can’t do that at a World Cup, but the main thing is that we are confident. We just have to build momentum and keep improving.”

The long-awaited return of the annual National Plowing Championships takes place this week (September 20-22) and, as always, a good selection of machinery is available to farmers and contractors.

Agriland took a sneak peek on Sunday (September 18) to see which machines are new to the scene, and which others might be in public view for the first time, despite having launched at some point in the last two years.

Kubota’s latest tools

One of the most intriguing stands was Kubota’s displaying a new round baler and mower.

Kubota‘s new fixed chamber baler is a streamlined machine producing a 1.25m (4ft) bale

Although both seem to compete with the range of its subsidiary Kverneland, these machines seemed aimed more at the regular farmer than the intensive user.

Lightweight Manitou

Manitou has brought two interesting new machines for farmers. The first is a new lightweight telescopic loader that can be towed while maintaining a 1.25 lift capacity.

Manitou self-leveling loader
The latest firm-oriented Manitou can lift 6 t and is self-leveling

At the other end of the scale is an 11.5t handler that can lift 6t and fill a grain truck in minutes.

Clarke machinery

As a progressive Valtra dealer, Clarke Machinery naturally had a good presentation of Finnish tractors on its stand, which includes the latest G-series of machines for the medium-sized farm.

Ktwo Rear Discharge Spreader
Ktwo trailers and spreaders originate from Buckinghamshire in the UK and are now imported by Clarke Farm Machinery

Rear discharge spreaders from Ktwo were also on display on the stand, these belong to a range of UK built trailers which may be unknown to many in Ireland.

Little Landini

Landini has endeavored to update its range and invest in its Irish distribution network in a bid to build on its heritage and increase its market presence.

Landini new plowing tractor
The smallest of the 4 Series is this 4.060 which offers 61hp and is perfectly suited to loader work according to Landini

The latest 4 Series models are on display at the Plowing, designed to suit the rancher and feature a small “torque” four cylinder engine as opposed to the three cylinders normally found in this power rack.

Mc Hale de Mayo

McHale has his latest version of the Fusion baler on his stand. This latest version, the Fusion 4 has an improved pick-up and software based on ISOBUS.

McHale baler
The latest Fusion 4 is in the spotlight on the McHale stand

The company is also showcasing its latest single mower set which at the moment only includes the two rear units with a front mounted item expected to be available soon.

Expandable Slurryquip

Slurry Quip has brought their new Orthros boom which can be used as a single 24m unit or two 12m booms.

Slurryquipip Telescopic Drip Bar
Slurryquip’s new dribble bar can be used to cover 24m or 12m fights

It is a substantial tool that is built for sturdiness and versatility. It is equipped with a telescopic extension allowing it to cover both tramline widths.

Plowing Match Showcase

This is just a small selection of what is new this year at Labour. There is a lot of innovation and development work going on behind the scenes, as always.

Besides the main stands, many other companies offer new products designed to bring greater efficiency to agriculture.

Certainly worth checking out many smaller stalls which may not have large pieces of machinery parked on them.

If there’s one piece of equipment that deserves an agricultural MVP award, it’s the utility vehicle. It hauls your tools, drawbar pins and parts, helps fix the fence and round up stray cows, and hauls lunch and dinner to your harvest crew. It’s hard to imagine a more indispensable machine.






And these days, you have more UV choices than ever before, as manufacturers continue to produce new and updated models with a wide range of innovative features and accessories – all with the aim of meeting the needs of ever-changing farmers, ranchers, hunters, recreational landowners and off-road enthusiasts.

Take the Deere Gator. Long known for its rugged, versatile and versatile personality, the Gator UV can now also play an important role in your precision farming activities.

For 2023, select full-cab Gator XUVs can be ordered AutoTrac-ready from the factory, paving the way for hands-free driving. Use it to set AB lines, flag obstacles, map boundaries, or perform grid sampling. Or attach a sprayer for precise applications with less overlap.

John Deere is enabling the productivity gains that farmers have seen by using AutoTrac technology on their tractors and integrating it into a smaller, more agile machine – a Gator utility vehicle,” said Maureen McCormack, implementation manager. in the Gator utility vehicle market. for John Deere.

These Gator UVs come from the factory with the necessary wiring harness and brackets to allow you to connect to a 4640 Universal Display or a StarFire 7000 GPS Receiver (which you probably already own).

Camp Fire Central Oregon receives two grants for technology and robotics program https://elktractors.com/camp-fire-central-oregon-receives-two-grants-for-technology-and-robotics-program/ Mon, 12 Sep 2022 22:20:59 +0000 https://elktractors.com/camp-fire-central-oregon-receives-two-grants-for-technology-and-robotics-program/ BEND, Ore.

BEND, Ore. (KTVZ) — In today’s rapidly changing world, society needs children to explore, discover and think deeply so they can be the innovators, developers and inventors who will solve pressing challenges of our future.

For many young people, there’s no better experiential learning that taps into this than STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) – and that’s why Camp Fire Central Oregon is thrilled to announce two major grants recently received. in support of a robust STEM broadening curriculum. The combined scholarship amounts total $30,000.

An initial amount of $15,000 has been awarded by the Braemar Charitable Trust, which seeks grant applications with a focus on education, community service, arts and culture, youth activities and historic preservation . Building on this donation, an additional $15,000 was provided by a matching Central Oregon Health Council, which works to create an equitable and integrated health ecosystem that improves the health of Central Oregonians through a collaborative work and community partnerships, using data-driven decisions to improve quality, reduce costs and empower providers.

“Research shows us that STEM inspires students to think more broadly about real-world problems and solve them with a hands-on, collaborative approach,” says Kecia Kubota, executive director of Camp Fire Central Oregon. “We are over the moon with the news of these two grants because we can now enhance our current STEM offerings, add more programs with better access and price for underserved populations, and provide the infrastructure and the personnel necessary to ensure the success of the program.”

The expansion has already begun with Camp Fire opening registration for a new FIRST LEGO robotics team in Redmond, Oregon. In addition to this and several other Bend-based robotics teams, Camp Fire relies on its Spanish-speaking robotics team, coached by a native Spanish-speaking instructor. In addition to its robotics teams, Camp Fire is enhancing its technology and robotics camps and programs, which run year-round and include free “Bit(e) of Robotics” workshops at Deschutes Public Libraries and various regional locations. throughout fall and spring.

The grants will support all of these community outreach and education efforts, as well as staffing and marketing for the expansion of the technology program. And yet another possibility is bringing technology programs to homeschool communities — a potential option that Camp Fire is asking tutors of homeschooled students throughout central Oregon to consider, by contacting directly Camp Fire if you are interested.

According to Javier Leiva, technology program manager at Camp Fire Central Oregon, the focus on program growth directly addresses an ever-changing need. And to have an impact on the community, the sustainability of the program is essential.

“These funds are amazing because they align closely with our expansion goals and strategies,” says Leiva. “Young people will feel a positive difference through an increase in staff, resources and equipment, all of which are essential to a strong and healthy robotics program that attracts, challenges and empowers these very bright, curious and eager tech learners.” .

Chicago, Sept. 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — According to Arizton’s latest research report, the UK tractor market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.7% over the period 2022-2027. The under 50hp segment of the UK agricultural tractor market registered 1,812 units in 2021 and is expected to reach 2,416 units by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 4.2% during the forecast period.

The penetration and adoption of agricultural mechanization practices across the UK is driving the sale of new tractors. Tractors and agricultural implements are the main product categories in the organized farming market in the UK.

The introduction of autonomous tractors is a major threat to farmers. Autonomous tractors will not replace human farmers but will help them in farming and increase productivity and operational efficiency, according to CNH officials. Additionally, most of the tasks that farmers and farmhands perform today are unrelated to the tasks that autonomous tractors are being developed for.

It is estimated that the price of an autonomous tractor is 40-50% higher than the price of a conventional tractor. Thus, affordability will be a major challenge for farmers. However, self-driving tractors will deliver better returns for UK farmers in the future.

A labor shortage is observed in the UK agricultural sector for several reasons. Lack of incentives, migration to other countries for employment and extreme working conditions are the main reasons for this. Rural youth in the UK are no longer interested in farming and are migrating to cities to explore new opportunities. The aging of the workforce also contributes significantly to the labor shortage.

Income and growth opportunities in the non-agricultural sector, low wages in the agricultural sector, and extreme working conditions reduce the percentage of the total labor force engaged in agriculture. The drastic shortage of agricultural labor will increase the demand for agricultural machinery, such as tractors.

Highlights

  • In 2021, the UK 141-200 HP segment saw strong growth. The main factor for the constant growth of the line of medium-power tractors is the increase in the turnover of farmers. The sales of tractors over 240 HP in the country are expected to remain stable over the forecast period as agricultural sales are likely to remain the same in the coming years.
  • The UK government is increasingly focusing on sustainability. In November 2020, the government proposed a detailed plan to focus on clean energy, reducing emissions and protecting the environment. Therefore, this is likely to provide growth opportunities for tractors that reduce environmental impact, such as electric or battery-powered tractors.
  • Government strategies to improve the welfare of farmers by converting farming into a viable business are paving the way for the purchase of new tractors. Awareness of advanced agricultural equipment to improve yield per hectare, reduce the overall cost of agricultural production and increase farmers’ income is driving sales of new tractors in the UK.
  • As farming and digital technology converge in the UK, new pathways to a smart farming future are becoming available. Several technologies, including GPS technology and self-driving or self-driving tractors, will enable smart farming. Farmers can work fewer hours with self-driving or self-driving tractors. However, the potential for data monitoring is enormous.
