USDA Announces Enhancements to Livestock and Dairy Insurance Programs

first_img SHARE The Department of Agriculture’s Risk Management Agency Monday announced several enhancements to the Dairy Revenue Protection, Livestock Gross Margin and Livestock Risk Protection Programs. Risk Management Agency Administrator Martin Barbre says the changes “strengthen risk management options and provide peace of mind in times of unpredictable market fluctuations.” The Livestock Gross Margin program protects against loss of gross margin or the market value of livestock minus feed costs. The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 removed the livestock capacity limitation, which allowed the program to remove the individual capacity limitation under the cattle, dairy and swine program. The Livestock Risk Protection program protects livestock producers from the impact of declining market prices.Improvements include expanded coverage for swine, fed and feeder cattle to all states. The Dairy Revenue Protection program is designed to cover unexpected declines in the quarterly revenue from milk sales compared with a guaranteed coverage level. Improvements for the 2020 crop year include changes in minimum declarations for butterfat and adjusting coverage levels.

On April 7, the Court had directed the Election Commission to disclose the reasons for its decisions to keep the polls in abeyance. Today, the Commission through Standing Counsel Deepu Lal Mohan placed a statement before the Court. In its statement, the Commission informed the Court that on March 17, the Commission announced the proposed schedule for the conduct of the biennial election to the Council of States from Kerala. The date initially announced was April 12. Elections were proposed to be notified on March 24.Following this, the recommendation for the dates was sent to the President, with a copy of the same marked to the Ministry of Law and Justice, the statement records.On the eve of the proposed election notification, the Union Law Ministry expressed a concern that if the Rajya Sabha elections were held on April 12, 2021 as suggested, the popular will as expressed in the Assembly Elections held on April 6, may not be reflected. The Commission was therefore requested to revisit the issue, the statement in Court intimates. “In this case, if the elections to elect new Members to the Council of States are held on 12thApril, 2021 as suggested, the popular will, which is already recorded in the ballot box consequent to the Assembly Elections already held on 6thApril 2021, it may not reflect the will of the people.In view of the above, the Commission may kindly revisit the issue”, Law Ministry’s letter to ECIUpon the receipt of this communication, the Commission sought the advice of a Senior Advocate(whose name is not disclosed in the statement) who opined that it would be constitutionally just and proper that the new Legislative Assembly, constituted the electoral college for filling up the three vacancies. The said senior advocate, kept anonymous, purportedly stated that since the three new members would represent the new Legislative Assembly for the major portion of their term, it would not be constitutionally fair and just nor consistent with basic democratic principles or spirit of the Constitution. The Commission however said that it chose not to accept the opinion that Elections be notified only after the new Assembly came into being. It said that it as per the statutory mandate, it has to notify the elections before the retirement of the RS members. However, it said that there was no obligation to hold elections during the life of the present assembly.The poll body contended that Section 12 of the Representation of the People Act, 1951 prohibits issuance of notification more than three months prior to the date of vacancy but does not fix the outer limit of notification. However, because a complete and absolute discretion, may lead to impropriety in notifying dates beyond expiry of terms of members, the Commission states that it would notify the schedule before the expiration of term. “While the date of expiration of the term of current assembly may be a relevant factor for consideration it cannot be the sole basis for determining the schedule of such elections which ultimately affect the functioning of the house where the vacancies belong, i.e. the Upper House. The Commission is of the view that elections should be held timely. The Commission, as such, is not concerned so much with the question of which assembly votes for the biennial elections as is with the fulfillment of its constitutional duty to conduct these elections at the earliest,” the statement reads. The ECI’s standing counsel told the Court that it has decided to notify the elections before April 21, the date of retirement of three Rajya Sabha members from Kerala.ECI stand is anomalous, counsel of Kerala assemblySenior Advocate CS Vaidyanathan, representing the Secretary of the Kerala Assembly, submitted that the stand of the Election Commission was anomalous.”If elections are notified before April 21, it means that the nominations have to be given based on proposal of existing members. As per Section 30 of RPA, the nominations have to be filed within 7 days of notification. If they notify on April 21, the last date for nominations will be April 28. If ECI proposal is accepted, it means one set of members will be proposing and another set of members will be voting. This is anomalous”, the senior counsel said.”The candidates who propose the candidates must be in a position to vote. Otherwise it will be an anomaly”, he added.Stressing that the Election Commission was supposed to be an independent body, he said that it cannot be playing games. “If they have decided to notify the elections, what is holding them back from actually notifying it. Which is the mysterious hand which is holding them back?”, Vaidyanathan submitted.The ECI Standing Counsel said that the term of the present assembly is till June 2, 2021 as per Article 172 of the Constitution.Vaidyanathan replied that it has to be presumed that the present assembly will be dissolved soon after the declaration of results on May 2.”Fixing of schedule of election is exclusively within the domain of Election Commission. They cannot demand that elections should be held on a particular date”, the ECI counsel retorted. He stressed that the ECI was not acting on the dictates of anybody but was only acting based on the concern of propriety raised by the Ministry.”The opinion of the Ministry cannot be brushed aside. We were only acting bonafide”, he reiterated.Senior Advocate NN Suganapaln, appearing for CPI(M) MLA S Sharma, supplemented the arguments of Vaidyanathan and urged the Court to pass a directions to ensure that the present assembly is able to vote for Rajya Sabha elections.No arm-twisting by Centre, ASG tells”If somebody wants to cast an aspersion on the Central Govt that it was trying to arm twist the ECI, it is wrong”, Assistant Solicitor General P Vijayakumar told the bench.He said that the election to Rajya Sabha is a representative election, which should reflect the mandate of people must be reflected. The mandate of people is sealed on April 6. If the members are elected based on current assembly, it will exceed the life of the next assembly. It will not reflect the mandate of the people.”Fair election must reflect the will of people. Whether a past assembly should be permitted to decide? It is not correct to say that Centre was trying to arm twist the Election Commission. In fact, it is the petitioners who are trying to arm twist the Commission”, the ASG said.The issue pertains to the Rajya Sabha seats of Indian Union Muslim League’s Abdul Vahab, CPI(M)’s KK Ragesh, the Congress’s Vayalar Ravi, who are retiring on April 21.On March 30, the Standing Counsel of the ECI had made a statement that the elections will be held during the term of the present assembly itself. However, the standing counsel immediately changed the stand after the Court recorded the statement in its order.  Next Storylast_img read more

Case round-ups

first_imgCase round-ups by Eversheds 020 7919 4500Is a like-for-like job comparison enough to establish discrimination? Shamoon v Chief Constable of the Royal Ulster Constabulary (NorthernIreland), House of Lords [2003] All ER (D) 410 Shamoon was a chief inspector in the Urban Traffic Division of the RoyalUlster Constabulary (RUC). Following criticisms of her staff appraisals, shewas removed from her appraisal role, although male chief inspectors in othertraffic divisions (who had not been similarly criticised) continued to doappraisals. Shamoon claimed the removal of her responsibilities constituted lessfavourable treatment (under the Sex Discrimination (Northern Ireland) Order1976, which largely replicates the Sex Discrimination Act 1976). She pointed tothe male chief inspectors as appropriate comparators and to their differenttreatment as evidence of discrimination. The tribunal accepted that approach,and found in her favour, but on appeal, that view was overturned. Shamoonappealed to the House of Lords. The appeal was dismissed. In discrimination cases, tribunals often considerthe difference in treatment of a comparator before going on to consider whetherthe claimant’s less favourable treatment arose due to discrimination. In many cases, however, such a two-tiered approach is inappropriate. Todetermine whether the other chief inspectors were appropriate comparators inthis case, the tribunal could not avoid addressing whether Shamoon was treatedas she was on the grounds of her sex. By failing to do so, it did not considerhow a male chief inspector in the same circumstances as Shamoon would have beentreated – her colleagues’ circumstances were different in that they had notbeen subjected to complaints. The House of Lords therefore held there was noevidence in the tribunal’s decision which justified a finding that thetreatment received by Shamoon was on the grounds of her sex. Procedure, procedure, procedure… Re P, House of Lords, [2003] UKHL 8 The statutory requirements in respect of strike action are comprehensive,but mistakes do occur. P (whose identity is protected) was a school pupil. Dueto his behaviour, he was permanently expelled from class but was laterreinstated on appeal. Following a successful ballot by NASUWT in favour of strike action, P wastaught separately. He subsequently brought a claim against the trade unionalleging that its statutory immunity from such actions was lost because theteacher’s concerns did not constitute a “trade dispute” (as requiredby TULCRA 1992). He also contended that the ballot for industrial action wasflawed as the union had overlooked two recent joiners. P was unsuccessful allthe way to the House of Lords. The appeal was dismissed. The statutory definition of a trade dispute coversany genuine dispute between employers and employees relating wholly or mainlyto the job the staff are employed to do, or the terms and conditions on whichthey are employed. Also, although the number of union members at the school wassmall and it would not have been difficult for the trade union to ensure allappropriate recipients received their ballot papers, an immaterial andaccidental failure to send a single ballot paper should not reasonablyinvalidate a ballot. Such failures should not reasonably be fatal and in thiscase the two omissions made no practical difference to the result. Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.

Under Armour to sublease planned Fifth Avenue flagship

first_img Email Address* Under Armour CEO Patrik Frisk and the GM Building (Getty, Google Maps, Cushman & Wakefield)It wasn’t so long ago that the sportswear brand Under Armour had big plans for a flagship store in the former FAO Schwarz at 767 Fifth Avenue.But more than two years ago, Under Armour pushed the store’s opening back to 2021. Now, it may not open in the General Motors Building at all.The retailer is subleasing 24,403 square feet of its total 53,000 square feet of space between East 58th and 59th streets. According to a public brochure on Cushman & Wakefield’s website, the available lease term runs through 2035.Read moreRetail had its reckoning. Will subleases flood the market?Under Armour to take former FAO Schwarz space at GM BuildingHere’s how much money the GM Building makes Boston PropertiesGeneral Motors BuildingRetail Real EstateSubleasing Under Armour and Boston Properties, the landlord of the GM building, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.The former home of FAO Schwarz was coveted just five years ago, and was eyed by rival athletic brand Nike before Under Armour inked its deal.But times have changed. Tourism numbers have fallen on the luxury corridor, hurting retailers in the short term; in the long term, the pandemic has led many to rethink the advantages of a huge flagship altogether.And Under Armour was already reconsidering its Fifth Avenue digs before the pandemic took hold. The company was facing weak demand in North America and executives said it would focus more on smaller, more potentially profitable locations.“The Fifth Avenue location is a premier retail location, but we’re considering whether it may be better suited for someone else at this time,” CFO Dave Bergman said at the time, according to Market Watch.Subleasing has become more common for office tenants in recent months, and experts believe an uptick in retail subleasing may soon follow.Other tenants in the GM Building are also turning toward subleasing.

Recruitment of mackerel icefish (Champsocephalus gunnari) at South Georgia indicated by predator diets and its relationship with sea surface temperature

first_imgThe South Georgia population of mackerel icefish (Champsocephalus gunnari) is exploited by both a fishery and predators, including gentoo penguins (Pygoscelis papua). Because considerable uncertainty surrounds recent estimates of stock size, there is a need to consider novel approaches that may give insight into the population dynamics of this species. We derive two indices of recruitment based on the occurrence of mackerel icefish in gentoo penguin diets, one of which is scaled by a survey estimate of the density of Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba), an alternative prey species for gentoo penguins. The closure of the fishery for much of the 1990s allowed the relationship between environmental conditions and recruitment to be studied without the confounding effects of fishing mortality. The recruitment indices were positively correlated with sea surface temperature with a lag time equal to the age of the fish. These results suggest strong links between mesoscale environmental processes and the smaller scale interaction between gentoo penguins and their mackerel icefish prey.last_img read more
