Indiana Farm Bureau thanks lawmakers for Stance Against EPA Proposed…

first_img Indiana Farm Bureau thanks those members of Indiana’s congressional delegation who signed a letter asking EPA administrator Gina McCarthy to return to her agency a proposed rule that greatly expands the scope of federal power under the Clean Water Act (or CWA). The letter, drafted by House members Reps. Chris Collins, R-New York, and Kurt Schrader, D-Oregon, was signed by seven of nine members of Indiana’s congressional delegation: Reps. Susan Brooks, R-Congressional District 5; Larry Bucshon, R-CD 8; Luke Messer, R-CD 6; Todd Rokita, R-CD 4; Marlin Stutzman, R-CD 3; Jackie Walorski, R-CD 2; and Todd Young, R-CD 9. “We are grateful that these members of our delegation recognize the proposed EPA rule for what it is,” said IFB president Don Villwock.  “It’s a stunning regulatory land grab that completely redefines “navigable” waters,  is based on flawed data, and will create confusion leading to future litigation.” Facebook Twitter IFB encourages its members to learn more about the proposed rule and participate in the comment process at its website, www.infarmbureau.org/waterrule, or the American Farm Bureau Federation’s site, ditchtherule.fb.org.  The deadline to submit comments to the EPA is July 21. On March 25 the EPA and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers released a proposed rule that would assert CWA jurisdiction over nearly all areas in the country with any hydrologic connection to downstream navigable waters, including man-made conveyances such as ditches. The new rule would directly contradict prior U.S. Supreme Court decisions that imposed limits on federal CWA authority. IFB’s national policy advisor Kyle Cline echoed Villwock’s concerns about EPA’s regulatory overreach and blatant disregard for Congress. “The current EPA proposal is in complete opposition to the original intent of Congress when they passed the Clean Water Act,” Cline said.  “This proposed rule is yet another example of how the EPA is attempting to overstep Congress to achieve its own goals.” By Gary Truitt – May 21, 2014 Indiana Farm Bureau thanks lawmakers for Stance Against EPA Proposed Rule SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Indiana Farm Bureau thanks lawmakers for Stance Against EPA Proposed Rule Previous articleUSDA Announces Expanded Crop Insurance OptionsNext articleWill the EPA Give In?

“1/10th Of India Lives In Bihar”: Patna HC Seeks Govt.’s Response On Condition Of Quarantine Centres For Returning Migrants [Read Order]

Today, 1/10th of the population of India lives in Bihar with highest density of population ratio. Hence the need, all the more, for monitoring the centres directly by senior level officer(s) at the level of the Government and with a greater vigil”, the Court observed. The Chief Justice-led bench required the Bihar government to submit its response by May 18, stating categorically (a) the number of quarantine centres established in the State of Bihar; (b) number of persons (migrants) housed therein; (c) number of persons who have been allowed to return to their respective places of destination after expiry of the mandatory period of quarantine; (d) total number of persons (migrants), who are further expected to enter the State of Bihar; (e) the capacity of centres to house such persons; (f) whether provision for security, sanitation and food exists at each one of such centre or not; (g) whether such facility stands outsourced or is being provided or sought to be provided directly by the employees of the State; (h) whether there is a provision for providing medical aid/facilities; and (i) mechanism for lodging complaints and its redressal. “Based on the news reports dated 7th May, 2020 published in Dainik Bhaskar, Danik Jagaran, Hindustan (Annexure-1 series) and dated May 7, 2020 published in Hindu (Annexure-2), allegedly, at certain places, there is no check on the movement of the persons housed at the quarantine centres and that quality of food distributed to the occupants is not of the desired level”, noted the Division Bench. The bench inferred from the records that “perhaps in the State of Bihar, more than 2450 quarantine centres stand established by the Disaster Management Department, in anticipation of housing 2.5 lakhs persons, termed as migrants, who are desirous of returning home. Perhaps the figure may be more”. The Court observed that Such quarantine centres are to be established and managed as per the guidelines for quarantine facilities framed by the Government of India- “There has to be proper segregation of the areas, prominently labelled as low risk, moderate risk and high risk areas. The entry and exit points of the said centres are required to be secured properly, with proper facilities of sanitation etc. Any mis-management in proper handling of such centres may result into the spread and/or increase of the disease in Bihar” The bench acknowledged that on account of the current pandemic COVID-19, both the Central and the State Government have taken certain measures for not only transporting but allowing the persons residing outside to return to their parent States but have also issued certain instructions and guidelines with regard to their safety and security, imperative for securing safety of health of the persons already residing in the State, including the State of Bihar. “In Bihar, at the level of the Government, all arrangements for setting up of quarantine centres contemplated under such directions stand taken but the difficulty appears to have arisen in their proper management at the ground level”, remarked the Court.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Drenched: sisters and friends accept ice bucket challenge

first_img The Ice Bucket “incident” attracted a crowd and generated a lot of laughter but ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease is no laughing matter.Eyes were misty as Floyd talked about her brothers, Buddy and Phillip Brantley, who were lost to the progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects never cells in the brain and spinal cord.Dr. Buddy Brantley was a highly respected and much loved “family” doctor in Troy. Being a physician, he recognized the early symptoms of ALS. A muscle biopsy confirmed his self-diagnosis.“There was no history of ALS in our family and it was hard for all of us to accept,” Floyd said. “But, when you are diagnosed with ALS, there’s nothing you can do but accept it and pray … and hope.”Floyd said prayers were answered in that her brother was fortune the disease didn’t rob him of his ability to breathe and swallow.“He lost so much muscular control but he was able to talk,” Floyd said. “We were so thankful for that. Then, one night, Buddy went to sleep and didn’t wake up. That was a blessing. His suffering could have been so much more.”Buddy Brantley was about five years older than his brother, Phillip. His death was a devastating loss to his family and to the Troy community. His brother had a difficult time dealing with his death.“When Phillip began to complain of symptoms of ALS, we thought it was psychological,” Floyd said. “For two brothers with no family history of ALS to have the disease was unthinkable.”The “unthinkable’ became reality. Phillips Brantley was diagnosed with ALS.“Phillip was the most thoughtful, caring and kindest person you would ever meet,” Floyd said. “He thought about others before himself.”Floyd told the story of the night her brother opened the door to a homeless man, gave him food and a place to sleep.“Phillip was just that kind of person,” she said.The effects of ALS were more debilitating for Phillip Brantley and he suffered terribly from the disease.“Buddy and Phillip both died of ALS at the age of 63,” Floyd said. “ALS is a devastating disease. You hope against hope and then all hope is gone.”All of those who got “iced down” Tuesday in order to bring greater awareness to ALS encourage everyone to learn more about the disease and then support the ALS Association in its efforts to find treatments for this devastating disease.

The “Challenge” went viral throughout the social media.Not only did Sisters’ co-owner Rodgers get up for the challenge by donning “frog’s feet” and a snorkel, and chanting, “Bring it on,” so did Naomi Miles accept the Ice Bucket Challenge. And, every other Sisters’ employee was willing and eager to “pour it on.” Only six lucky people got to do the honors.Six buckets of ice and ice-cold water were dumped on “Miss Pat” and company –Miles, James Ketchum, Jacqeline Floyd, Carol Amos and “Famous” Mike Amos. Next Up“Now, let’s see how ‘cool’ you really are?”Pat Rodgers of Sisters Restaurant challenged Troy Tourism Director Shelia Jackson to be “cool” and accept the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge or refuse it and be an ol’ wet blanket.Rodgers said accepting the challenge to have a bucket of ice dumped on her head was a no brainer. Published 8:52 pm Tuesday, August 19, 2014 Sisters Restaurant was the site of an ALS Ice Bucket Challenge incident Tuesday. Restaurant co-owner Pat Rodgers accepted the challenge and invited others to join her to support the campaign. Challenges were passed to Shelia Jackson, Charlotte Hussey, Cathy and Ronnie Hamilton, Ken Cox, Jeff Kervin, Robert Jones, Tim Bradley, Ed Whatley and Mike Johnson.

Cyanobacteria from benthic mats of Antarctic lakes as a source of new bioactivities

first_imgAims: To exploit the cyanobacterial diversity of microbial mats growing in the benthic environment of Antarctic lakes for the discovery of novel antibiotic and antitumour activities. Methods and results: In all, 51 Antarctic cyanobacteria isolated from benthic mats were cultivated in the laboratory by optimizing temperature, irradiance and mixing. Productivity was generally very low (<= 60 mg l(-1) d(-1)) with growth rates (mu) in the range of 0.02-0.44 d(-1). Growth rates were limited by photosensitivity, sensitivity to air bubbling, polysaccharide production or cell aggregation. Despite this, 126 extracts were prepared from 48 strains and screened for antimicrobial and cytotoxic activities. Seventeen cyanobacteria showed antimicrobial activity (against the Gram-positive Staphylococcus aureus, the filamentous fungus Aspergillus fumigatus or the yeast Cryptococcus neoformans), and 25 were cytotoxic. The bioactivities were not in accordance with the phylogenetic grouping, but rather strain-specific. One active strain was cultivated in a 10-l photobioreactor. Conclusions: Isolation and mass cultivation of Antarctic cyanobacteria and LC-MS (liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry) fractionation of extracts from a subset of those strains (hits) that exhibited relatively potent antibacterial and/or antifungal activities, evidenced a chemical novelty worthy of further investigation. Significance and impact of the study: Development of isolation, cultivation and screening methods for Antarctic cyanobacteria has led to the discovery of strains endowed with interesting antimicrobial and antitumour activities.last_img read more

It is also now offering its customers online mortgage advice.“This way of working is resonating well with our colleagues and customers who are appreciative of this multi-channel choice of engagement, providing support and advice whilst allowing everyone to stay safe,” the company says.As we reported last week, Countrywide has taken a cautious approach to re-opening its business and has been busy undertaking a comprehensive risk assessment of its operations since the government announced the reopening of the property market on 12th May.“We continue to actively monitor the effect of the COVID-19 situation,” the company says.“The Board’s priority remains the safety of our colleagues and customers; to provide essential services to our customers; to preserve and protect the future of the business for our people; and to conserve cash and to manage the Group through the coronavirus pandemic.“Whilst the housing market in England was re-opened on 13 May, it is too early to assess the impact on housing transactions, and the Group is therefore unable to provide guidance on future profitability.”covid-19 coronavirus Countrywide May 21, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
