set to be removed from a two-year budget agreement passed a month ago.. house ag chair mike conaway commended house speaker paul ryan and majority leader kevin mccarthy for fixing the cuts. those three billion dollars will be replaced by a federal reserve dividend cut for the banking industry.. conaway maintains cuts would not come from ag ograms.. if the highghy funding bill is passed it would be the first in a decade to last longer than two years.. it provides three hundred billion dollars of funding for highways, bridges, and transit. ---- the cattle markets are still looking volatile.. in the grain markets.. bearish news from last week.. turned out to be.. not so bad.. at least for beans.. they've seen a big rally this week.. "the main ory is the soybeans. we're actually up 40 cents off the lows. the argentinian election turned out to not be bearish. because..." "...essentially the sales that were coming out of the reduction of the tariff were already built into the market. throw on top of that the epa announcement on the biofuel mandates and it's
biodeisel use. you've seen a bi of a pick up in s s oil. so put those two together and we have a nice little rally going on in the beans." "triple digit moves up and down every day. the big problem today is we're still several dolllls above the cash market from last week. that is, the december board is. the december cattle actions expire on friday, then we go into deliveries the market needs to start reflecting the cash market. the market's trying to get a little closer to cash. till cash proves that it wants to go up." "we'veot a pretty bottoming action there. the slaughter runs typically top out the week after thanksgiving. you have a dip during thanksgiving and usually one more week of bigger numbers and then they start to slow down. ihink that's what the market's been waiting on. some evidence that we're reducing the supply." ---- the enrollment period for the federal conservation reserve&program is open.. thihiis its 30th anniversrsy and

"i brought my son to the doctor's because he's been coughing very badly. the air is so bad you can barely see other people on the street."the long-term effects on the population here including children are staggering. a recent study from the university of california said there are about 4000 premature deaths each day in china from air pollution. breathing in these toxic particles can contribute to everything from cardiac disease to lung cancer. "many families keep piles like
homes in the winter. it's a major pollutant but it is cheap and it is efficient, and because of that, it accounts for between 60 and 70 percent of china's energy supply."coal helps power cities across the country, like here in baoding. as bad as beijing's air is, baoding's is worse. the day cnn was there, air quality was nearly 40 times worse than un guidelines. the chinese government says its emissions will peak in 2030, and companies here invested over 80 billion dollars in renewable energy last year. for many, it's not enough. "i don't think anything will change or that the government has made any progress."so for now at least, the reality of life in northern china involves coping with a toxic haze. matt rivers, cnn, beijing. trt oc dubuque school leaders have to put a new pool project on hold.

on the change yesterday in cedar rapids. one person from the department of human services said the small number of participants might have misunderstoo d the purpose. unlike previous hearings on the idea of privatizing medicaid, yesterday's meeting was only to discuss a few amendments to the governor's plan. "there wasn't much warning, and it was at a terrible time you know.,wednesday morning at 9:00. that rules out a large number of people" local d-h-s staffers were prohibited from answering questions about the plan. and only one person made a public comment about the amendments. medicaid participants are receiving notices about their assigned managed care company in the mail. the university of iowa children's hospital will soon have a new name. the regents approved naming the hospital the stead family university of iowa children's hospital, after businessman jerre stead and his wife, mary joy. the steads have donated more than 50 million dollars to
the name goes into effect next november. the dubuque school district needs a new swimming pool, but that project is now on hold. that's because of a change in the collection of the state sales tax from iowa's manufacturer s. the change takes effect on july first next year. it'll erase the state sales tax that iowa manufacturer s have paid on consumable supplies. those are items they use in the manufacturin g process. the iowa department of revenue estimates that will cut overall state sales tax revenue by 40 million dollars between 2017 and 2020. it could also reduce local option sales tax revenue by up to six million dollars annually. that would affect cities that have large manufacturing bases. this law change affects the pool project because dubuque schools were planning to use about 7 million dollars from the local option sales tax. the school district was talking about renovating the pool at hempstead high school and possibly
to build an aquatic center. under the proposal, the city would pay for part of the pool project and dubuque schools would make up the rest.

quarterback experienced he has won a lot of games for them he is a leader and they have excellent receivers. part of the key is their offensive line they were not healthy early in the season they are all back now and have played well the last couple of weeks it is going to be a big g challenge for ususother they have a couple of first round draft picks on the defensive line how do you attack that? it is interesting first round draft picks the qb and you flip it over on the sididthey look like an nfl line. exexemely big and talented, they play hard it is going to be a real challenge but it does start up front we have to nuetralize those guys. it is like a mirror game if you look at the stats they are almost identical plus 14 turnover margin. that is one thing both teams do a great job of taking care of the ball they deem that really important and we have done the same of all the stats that is an important one. might be the biggest game in iowa football history that is debatable
this magnitude? i am not going down that road at all because these other 12 games have been big to that is what has allowed us to play 13. it is really important reward for our guys an opportunity. to me it is like any big game we have played this year. the bowl game or playoffs and i think the message to our team is it gets down to playing good football that is what gets you where you want to go that is what determines big games. ben niemann was knocked out in that last game is he arlight to go and how healthy are you going in? he is working back in the progression they set and everything has been very positive. we anticipate him being ready to go but that could change at anytime if he can't go bo bower can stetein and do a a eat job.
