Future of CBD Sales Still Unclear After 2-Hour Testimony

first_imgThe future of the sale of cannabidiol, or CBD, oil in Indiana remains unknown after an Indiana senator declined to call for a vote on two bills that would legalize the sale of the substance if certain specifications are met.The Senate Corrections and Criminal Law Committee heard roughly two hours of testimony Tuesday morning on Senate Bills 52 and 294, both authored by Sen. Mike Young, R-Indianapolis. Senate Bill 294 would expand on legislation passed last year that allowed for the sale of CBD containing up to 0.3 percent THC to people on a state registry who have epilepsy. Senate Bill 52 would permit the sale of CBD oil to any Hoosier by any retailer, provided the oil contains no THC, the element in marijuana that causes euphoric sensations.Young told the committee SB 294 came about as a way of solving a practical problem that arose after the passage of last year’s legislation. Current law regarding CBD oil allows patients with epilepsy to use the substance if they are included on the state registry, but those patients cannot purchase the oil in Indiana. Instead, they must go out-of-state to purchase CBD oil.To solve that issue, Young’s bill would allow Indiana retailers to sell CBD oil to people on the registry, though those people would have to produce both a unique bar code and a state-issued identification each time they make a CBD purchase. For its part, the retailer would be required to store CBD oil in a locked case, verify the purchaser is on the registry and record each purchase.While SB 52 would allow for wider access to CBD oil, the bill would put certain requirements in place to ensure the oil sold for public access contains no THC. Specifically, manufacturers would be required to send a sample of their products to pre-approved laboratories to test for any amount of THC. Once approved, CBD oil containers would include a link that law enforcement could use to ensure the contents of the containers do not include THC.Prior to hearing testimony on the bills, the committee approved an amendment to SB 52 that would relax certain requirements for out-of-state CBD manufacturers. Specifically, the amendment would not permit out-of-state manufacturers to sell CBD oil with THC in it in Indiana, but those manufacturers also would not be required to destroy substances that contain THC. Indiana manufacturers, however, would have to destroy any CBD oil that tests positive for THC and is intended for sale to the general public.Testimony during Tuesday’s committee meeting was overwhelmingly in favor of legalizing the use of CBD oil, particularly for medicinal use. Richard Feldman, a former state health commissioner who spoke on behalf of the Indiana Academy of Family Physicians, pointed to anecdotal evidence of CBD oil effectively relieving symptoms of epilepsy, acne, depression and other ailments, as well as helping to wean patients off of prescription opioids.Though additional research is still necessary to turn that anecdotal evidence into scientific evidence, Feldman told committee members the illegality of CBD oil is unjustified and often irrational. The substance does not cause the high associated with marijuana, he said, but instead has been shown to offer health benefits.Some Hoosiers did speak against SBs 52 and 294, but because the said the bills were too restrictive on CBD use. Veterans organizations and parents of children suffering from diseases that could be cured by CBD oil were among those who opposed the bills.Committee members also raised concerns about Young’s legislation, with Sen. Rod Bray, R-Martinsville, questioning whether the bar code requirement would be too restrictive, especially in light of the registry requirement. Along similar lines, Senate Minority Leader Tim Lanane, D-Anderson, said the requirements imposed under the bills would turn patients using CBD for medicinal purposes into “mini-criminals.”Lanane’s comments were met with multiple rounds of applause from the audience in the packed Senate chamber. Sen. Susan Glick, R-LaGrange, who was acting as committee chair while Young presented his bills, instructed the audience to remain quiet and hold their comments for their testimony.Young did not ask for a vote on SBs 52 and 249 on Tuesday to allow time for additional amendments deemed necessary. However, he cautioned committee members that spending a large amount of time on his bills at future meetings could eat into the time the committee could otherwise devote to other legislation during the short session.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Kyrie Irving reportedly eyeing Roc Nation after split with agent

first_imgKyrie Irving was a busy man less than three weeks before the start of NBA free agency.The Celtics point guard on Wednesday chose not to opt into the final year of his contract with the team, making him an unrestricted free agent on June 30.  Celtics’ Kyrie Irving is not opting into his $21.3 million deal for next season and will become a free agent eligible to sign a new contract with Boston or elsewhere, league sources tell @TheAthleticNBA @Stadium.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) June 12, 2019Shortly after the news of Irving’s impending free agency, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported that Irving split from his longtime agent, Jeff Wechsler, and was with for Irving to work with Roc Nation for his upcoming contract negotiations.Boston’s Kyrie Irving is expected to partner with ROC Nation Sports for representation, league sources tell ESPN. https://t.co/2ZQnKvDaLV— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) June 13, 2019Wechsler has represented Irving since he was drafted No. 1 overall by the Cavaliers out of Duke in 2011. He helped Irving navigate his trade demand to the Cavs. Irving joined the Celtics by way of a trade with Cleveland in the summer of 2017.MORE: The major ramifications of Kevin Durant’s injury The move to Roc Nation will fuel rumors that Irving and, perhaps, Kevin Durant will be joining the Nets. Roc Nation was founded by Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter, a former Nets part-owner. The agency represents Durant, who can also become a free agent this summer should he choose not to opt into the final year of his contract with the Warriors. Current Nets guard Caris LeVert is also represented by the agency.Irving, a six-time All-Star, is believed to have Brooklyn near the top of his desired free-agent destinations. Last week the Nets traded Allen Crabbe, the No. 17 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft and a lottery-protected first-round pick in next year’s draft to the Hawks in exchange for Taurean Prince and a 2021 second-round pick. The move cleared the $18.5 million Crabbe was due next season, giving Brooklyn enough cap space to sign two free agents this summer to max contracts.Irving averaged 23.8 points and 6.9 assists per game in 67 games for the Celtics this season. He was named to the All-NBA second team.last_img read more

To Obama, campaign is barely ahead in 4th quarter

first_imgby Jim KuhnhennNEW YORK (AP)—President Barack Obama sees the presidential contest as a clutch moment in his favorite sport—the fourth quarter of a taut basketball game.Fundraising with the help of current and former National Basketball Association stars, Obama told a small group of donors gathered Wednesday night at Alice Tully Hall in Lincoln Center that the current campaign is like the final minutes of a basketball contest with his team up by a few points.“But the other side is coming strong,” Obama said. “And they play a little dirty. We’ve got a few folks on our team in foul trouble. We have a couple of injuries. And I believe they have one last run in them.” Obama raised $3 million with the help of the players, who included former Chicago Bulls player Michael Jordan and former New York Knicks Walt Frazier and Bill Bradley. NBA Commissioner David Stern also was there.Invoking Jordan’s competitive nature, Obama concluded, “If you have seven minutes to go and you have a little bit of a lead, that’s when you put them away.”The players were part a daylong fundraiser. Earlier, former and current players participated in a $250-per-person autograph session and in a skills camp priced at $5,000 for two people.“It is very rare that I come to an event where I’m like the fifth or sixth most interesting person,” Obama joked at the Lincoln Center dinner.Later, Obama changed out of his dark suit to shoot baskets with some of the players out of sight of the press. Obama, an avid basketball fan and a player, made a splash during his 2008 campaign by sinking a 3-point shot while visiting troops in Kuwait. His most recent star-studded game, also played in private, featured actors George Clooney and Tobey Maguire. Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan (AP Photo/Chuck Burton)last_img read more

If nothing else, it’s the perfect excuse to enjoy a glass of lemonade with your family and get to know what’s out there.” Facebook0Tweet0Pin0last_img read more

It’s WI Women’s time to win T20 World Cup – Aguilleira

first_imgBRIDGETOWN, Barbados (CMC):Former West Indies Women captain Merissa Aguilleira believes that the regional side is capable of securing championship honours in the forthcoming T20 World Cup, which starts next month in India.West Indies women have reached the penultimate stage of the competition on three successive occasions, but the Trinidad and Tobago wicketkeeper-batsman believes that they can go all the way this time.”I am really excited about this tournament because I truly believe it is time for us to win this T20 World Cup,” said Aguilleira.”It has been three consecutive times we have reached the semi-finals, so it’s about time, but I have all faith in the girls, and I truly believe we can cross that mantle.”Aguilleira has been in prolific form since she was relieved from her duties as captain, a title that has been handed to Jamaican cricketer Stafanie Taylor.She roared to two powerful half-centuries in St Lucia last October to help West Indies Women come from behind to beat Pakistan in an ODI series 3-1 and said consistency would ensure that Windies Women lift the World T20 trophy.LACKING CONSISTENCY”I must say consistency because we have been lacking that for quite some time,” said Aguilleira, a 10-year veteran who has played 86 ODIs and 73 T20s.”One minute we are up; next minute, we are down. But I think once we get that consistency going, everything will fall into alignment.”Aguilleira is part of a squad that includes a number of reserve players in a training camp at the West Indies High Performance Centre in Barbados, preparing for a tour of South Africa before the ICC World Twenty20 Tournament in India. They are participating in an on-field training programme as well as a number of personal-development sessions before leaving for South Africa in two batches on February 9 and 10.”I will be going forward in South Africa with full fire, trying to continue from where I left off in St Lucia,” she said.”I have really been putting in some work so, hopefully, I can go out there and contribute for the team.”last_img read more

USDA expanding water quality efforts in Lake Erie

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest In August Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced that USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) will invest an additional $5 million to help Ohio, Michigan and Indiana improve water quality in the western Lake Erie basin. These investments will enable the region’s farmers to reduce the amount of nutrients entering the watershed, one of the sources of disruptive algae blooms.The announcement expands on the substantial efforts already underway to help farmers implement conservation practices that benefit water quality. Already this year, NRCS has devoted approximately $7.6 million in financial assistance for producers in the Western Lake Erie Basin across a range of conservation practices like cover crops and nutrient management.“USDA is committed to helping farmers do their part to protect and improve water quality in Lake Erie, and this targeted funding will allow for solutions to be expanded and delivered more quickly,” Vilsack said. “A problem as complex as this one will demand wide attention, from agriculture to municipalities, and we will continue to work with the Western Lake Erie Basin Partnership and other partners across the region to find common ground to address water quality issues in the basin.”The funding announced today is being made through the Farm Bill’s Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) and will allow NRCS to help farmers apply selected conservation practices shown to help water quality, such as planting cover crops, adding gypsum to soil, implementing conservation tillage or no-till systems on crop fields, installing agricultural drainage water management systems, and implementing nutrient management plans. On average, farmers and ranchers contribute half the cost of implementing conservation practices.Between 2009 and 2014, NRCS has invested approximately $57 million through Farm Bill Programs in the Lake Erie Basin. Studies are showing that between 2009 and 2014, the new steps farmers are taking with NRCS assistance have reduced annual nutrient and sediment losses by approximately 7 million pounds of nitrogen, 1.2 million pounds of phosphorus, and 488,000 tons of sediment in the Lake Erie Basin.The cause of algae blooms is complex; water temperature, lack of agitation, rainfall and runoff from farms and lawns, zebra mussels, and the impacts of climate change can all contribute to the problem.In addition to this targeted funding, NRCS is also leveraging partner investments through the new nation-wide Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP) through a project benefiting water quality by reducing the runoff of phosphorous into the waterways in the western Lake Erie basin. NRCS is investing $17.5 million into this project — the largest investment in the first round of RCPP — which is joined by state governments and other partners.last_img read more

How to Upload 60-Second Videos to Instagram

Want more tutorials like this? Let us know in the comments below. Upload to InstagramWe’ve finally made it. It’s time to open Instagram and upload the video.Open the Instagram App on your phoneTap on the Camera iconGo to the GallerySelect your Instagram video fileInstagram defaults to the 1:1 aspect ratio. Here is the only step that applies to the type of video you made.1:1 Aspect RatioRemember how your 1080 x 1080 1:1 video file was compressed down to a 1920 x 1080 video? Instagram will automatically crop out the excess black bars on the sides, and you will have a perfectly square video ready to share. The result is like the middle image above.Tap the blue arrowAdd a filter if you’d like, change the cover image, and/or mute the videoTap the blue arrowAdd a caption, hashtag, location, or send as a Direct messageTap the check mark, and you’re done.16:9 Aspect RatioInstagram defaults images and videos to 1:1. If you want a 16:9 aspect ratio like the right image above, you will need to adjust the crop.Tap the Crop button to change to 16:9Tap the blue arrowAdd a filter if you’d like, change the cover image, and/or mute the videoTap the blue arrowAdd a caption, hashtag, location, or send as a Direct messageTap the check mark, and you’re done. The 1:1 aspect ratio is much larger heightwise, but it crops so much detail from the sides. This format is preferred because it allows you to add more large legible text on screen. This is great for videos that are trying to educate you on a topic.Think of all the quick cooking recipe videos you see. The 1:1 aspect ratio gives you more room to write down the steps and recipe. The 1:1 ratio was achieved by uploading a 1080 x 1080 project file.Once you decide which ratio suits your project best, then you will know what canvas size you should set up in your NLE.Non-Linear Editor Sequence SettingsThe first step to editing a video for Instagram is setting up your sequence. Just make sure your final product is under 60 seconds, as that is the max time allowed by Instagram.For 16:9 – edit your video normally as 1920 x 1080For 1:1 – set your sequence to 1080 x 1080Quick note: 1:1 will give you a perfectly square canvas. If you are using 1920 x 1080 footage, be sure to watch the whole clip and make sure everything you need stays in frame.As a regular 16:9 video is still 1920 x 1080, the following steps will focus on creating 1:1 videos at 1080 x 1080.1. Adobe Premiere Pro 1. Final Cut Pro X Click Sequence > Sequence SettingsChange the Video Frame Size to 1080 x 1080 (1:1) / Leave at 1920 x 1080 for (16:9)Click OKNow edit your project as normal — add any transitions, text, and graphics.When you are finished editing:Export the sequenceOpen Adobe Media Encoder and import the file you just createdOpen the Preset BrowserApply the 1080p preset for your device (Android, Apple, Mobile)Compress the video file — Note: This will always export a 1920 x 1080 file. That is not an issue. Transfer to MobileImage via ShutterstockNo matter if you used a 16:9 or 1:1 ratio, the final compressed mobile video will be 1920 x 1080 — this won’t be a problem. When you upload to Instagram, you will choose crop settings. More on that later. Now that you have a compressed Instagram mobile file, you will need to transfer the file to your phone. For Mac/iPhone users, the best way is to use Apple AirDrop. For Mac/Android or PC/Mobile you can use programs like Google Drive or Dropbox. As a Mac/Android user, I personally prefer using Google Drive since it’s faster.Apple AirDropMac users with iPhones will find it easiest to send files using AirDrop. You will just drag the compressed Instagram video file to your iPhone. On your iPhone, you will now find the file under Photos.

You can Share to an Apple Device or Send to Compressor. In this case, using Compressor is overkill since we are only using the video file on mobile. That said, you can still use Compressor if you want.Share to an Apple DeviceFile > Share > Apple Devices 1080p (The Apple Device preset will work with some modern Android devices.)Click Share — Note: This will export a 1920 x 1080 file.

Here are the steps to make, edit, and upload your own 60-second videos to Instagram.Top image via Shutterstock*Author’s Note: 60-second Instagram videos are currently being tested among a select user base and Sponsored posts. The update won’t roll out to all users for a few more weeks. This tutorial still works for any length — from the minimum 3 seconds, the current 15-second max, and up to the future 60-second max. Instagram was designed as a mobile platform, and the app still remains that way today. It is designed for you to shoot and edit everything on your phone. However, many video producers and advertisers want to create original content with a traditional camera setup and video edit. This allows them to capture the best footage, control the audio, and even add graphics.Instagram has recently made major updates to their mobile app. Users can now post videos from 3 to 60 seconds long, and even edit multiple clips on their phone. This tutorial is designed for those users wanting to move completed videos from their NLE to Instagram. To upload to Instagram, the video file must be on your phone. As an editor, you will need to export your video, then compress it for your mobile device. Finally, you will send the compressed mobile file to your phone and then upload to Instagram. That may sound complicated, but it’s very easy to do.Instagram Video Aspect RatioInstagram will allow you to display your video with a 16:9 widescreen ratio or with a square 1:1 ratio. So, what does that mean?To those of you with experience working with Instagram, you may remember that the canvas size was once 640 x 640. While that holds true for mobile, Instagram can now be viewed from a desktop at a max size of 1080 x 1080. A good rule of thumb is to always use at least a 1080 canvas. Instagram will automatically convert the footage for you, so it’s best to max out the size to get the best look.Let’s assume you are working with HD 1080 footage. That means Instagram can display the video at 16:9 (1920 x 1080) or 1:1 (1080 x 1080). In reality, Instagram will automatically adjust the video size for the type of device. A 1920 x 1080 video will play on a desktop at 1080 x 680 and on a phone at roughly 648 x 365.16:9 Instagram VideoAs you can see above, the 16:9 aspect ratio acts as a traditional video. It allows you to fit more information widthwise. You can achieve this look by uploading a regular 1920 x 1080 video.The downside of 16:9 is that you will not take up as much valuable retail space on a user’s phone. If you are creating an advertisement, you will want to take as much screen space as possible. That is why ads tend to use a 1:1 ratio.1:1 Instagram Videolast_img read more
