first_imgJulia WickardThe deadline to sign up for the new Farm Bill programs is only 2 weeks away, and most Hoosier farmers have made their decisions and are signed up. March 31 is the deadline to make any changes in your base acres and to update yields as well as to decide which option you want to choose for the new Farm Bill program. State FSA Director Julia Wickard says most Indiana farmers have made those decisions, “We are in that 75% to 80% range of producers who have come in and either made the decision to reallocate their base acres and yields or make the election as to which Farm Bill program they want to enroll in.”  For the remaining 20%, Wickard said, if you do not make a decision and visit your county office to complete the paperwork, the decision will be made for you, “If a producer would decide not to make a decision by the March 31 deadline, then by default they would be enrolled in the Price Loss Coverage (PLC) program.” She added they would also lose any payments for losses in the 2014 crop year. Facebook Twitter Wickard said one issue that may be slowing some producers down is obtaining the signatures of the many landlords that are often involved in an operation, “If for whatever reason those signatures cannot be obtained, we can offer an extension in some very limited situations.” The largest reform in farm safety netprograms came with the repeal of theDirect and Counter-Cyclical Program(DCP) and the Average Crop RevenueElection (ACRE) program. However,the new programs, Price Loss Coverage(PLC) and Agricultural Risk Coverage(ARC), are designed to help producersbetter manage risk. Producershave until March 31, 2015 to choosebetween which of these programs bestfits their farming operation.Dates associated with ARC and PLCthat farm owners and producers needto know:Now through March 31, 2015:Producers make a one-time electionbetween ARC and PLC for the2014 through 2018 crop years.Mid-April 2015-through Summer2015: Producers sign contracts for2014 and 2015 crop years.October 2015: Payments issued for2014 crop year, if needed.USDA helped create online tools toassist in the decision making process,allowing farm owners and producers toenter information about their operationand see projections that show whatARC and PLC will mean for themunder possible future scenarios. Theonline tools can be accessed at www.fsa.usda.gov/arc-plc.Audio Playerhttps://media.blubrry.com/hoosieragtoday/p/www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2015/03/wickard-wrap.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Podcast: Play in new window | Download | EmbedSubscribe: RSS Previous articleSunday OutlookNext articleAg Day, A Time to Come Together — or Not Gary Truitt SHARE By Gary Truitt – Mar 15, 2015 Over 400 education meetings, seminars, and webcasts have been held around the state to help producers make the right decision. Wickard told HAT most growers who are coming to their FSA office are prepared, “We have seen that most of the producers who have come into our county offices have run the on-line tools that are available, and they have been able to make the decision as to which program fits their operation.” The use of electronic records has also made the sign up process faster and more efficient. At Commodity Classic, Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack indicated another possible extension could be granted if not enough producers signed up by the March 31 deadline, but Wickard says what she is hearing from Washington is that March 31 is a firm deadline. Two weeks ago the USDA extended the deadline to March 31 because some areas of the US had not had enough producers sign up for the program. While Wickard did not expect Indiana to reach 100% participation, she did expect many of the remaining producers to complete their paperwork by the deadline.

first_imgTop StoriesEncounter Not A Procedure Established By Law; Condoning It A Disservice To Nation & Constitution : Justice Deepak Gupta Akshita Saxena19 July 2020 8:33 PMShare This – x”The brazeness with which the law is being flouted does not protend good things for the country coming up,” former Supreme Court Judge, Justice Deepak Gupta remarked recently during an interview with The Wire.

The remarks were made while referring to the “blatant” violation of procedure in the Vikas Dubey encounter case. Justice Gupta pointed out that after Dubey was arrested by the Madhya Pradesh Police in Ujjain, he was not produced before a Magistrate. He clarified that even though Section 167 of the CrPC stipulates that an accused must be produced before a magistrate within 24 hrs of arrest, the words used in the provision are “forthwith”. “24 hours is the upper limit of the time,” he said while hinting that Dubey should have been produced before a Magistrate in MP itself.While saying that there cannot be a “final word” from him on the legality of the encounter as investigation on it is underway, he said “But there are indications that this was not an encounter, he did not run away. He was killed. That brings us to the question why he was killed”.He made this statement after narrating some of the suspicious circumstances such as media being stopped from following the police convoy.”An encounter is not a procedure established by law. Killing by police – it is a killing, I’m qualifying my word, that will have to come out later – but it’s not a procedure established by law. So it becomes illegal by itself. When we condone such an action, when we turn a blind eye to it, we are doing a disservice to the nation, and a disservice to the Constitution”.”If we are call ourselves a civilized nation, if we are to say that we are a country governed by rule of law, then there is no place for encounters”, he said. He therefore recommended that an independent investigation must be carried on in the matter, as stipulated by the Supreme Court in the case of PUCL v. State of Maharashtra. In this case, the Top Court had laid down 16 guidelines to be followed during investigating encounter killings by the police. These guidelines include: An independent investigation into the incident/encounter be conducted by the CID or police team of another police station under the supervision of a senior officer;Magisterial inquiry under Section 176 of the CrPC in all cases of death which occur in the course of police firing;If on the conclusion of investigation the materials/evidence indicate that death had occurred by use of firearm amounting to offence under the IPC, disciplinary action against such officer must be promptly initiated and he be placed under suspension;No out-of-turn promotion or instant gallantry rewards shall be bestowed on the concerned officers soon after the occurrence. Justice Gupta was also critical of the UP Police for demolishing Dubey’s house in Kanpur, subsequent to martyrdom of eight policemen. “There’s no procedure prescribed for destroying the house…you are destroying evidence,” he remarked. Glorification of Encounters Justice Gupta expressed concerns over legitimacy given to police encounters and the unwarranted positive reaction that such incidents often reap. “The law has not been followed- that is worrisome. But what worries me even more is that a lot of people holding positions in power have not only not condemned the incident but have sort of supported the incident,” he said. Stating that no one has the authority to take the law into their hands he remarked, “You have an investigation, prosecution and adjudication by the judges. But you can’t have the investigator, prosecutor, adjudicator, jury, judge, everybody in one person. If you let be, that’s very sad. It’s not only the Vikas Dubey’s case. It also happened in Hyderabad… Legal system cannot be hijacked by the police or anybody else.” “Glorification on large screen especially of police officials who take the law into their own hands is sad. They become larger than life images,” he added. Justice Gupta asserted that it is the Judiciary, which has a key role to play in order to change the mindset of the people. “I strongly believe that when a judge refuses to grant bail to any person who’s committed any grave crime, then the Court is depriving them of liberty in accordance with law. But then don’t we have the responsibility to see that his rights are not trammeled while he’s in custody.” Prolonged trials He recognized that one of the reasons why police encounters gained popular support was delay in delivering of justice. “There is no doubt that the long delays in the court, in the judicial system, in delivering Justice in cases like this does cause anguish in the minds of people…judiciary must try and decide these types of cases as fast as possible,” Justice Gupta recommended. He however sought Government’s support to ensure that the Justice Delivery system runs smoothly. “We need to improve the judicial system but that can be done only with the help of people in power. If the judiciary is only going to get 0.57% out of the budgetary allocation of the country, then we have hardly about 20,000 judges in the country for a population of more than 135 crore. That’s abysmally low,” he said. Police reforms Justice Gupta stressed that the clarion call of police reforms must be addressed promptly, and said that the Police personnel should be trained that brutality is not the remedy to lawlessness. “Our problem is that we have not followed various judgments of the Supreme Court, various recommendations of various commissions, for separate investigation wing, separate law and order wing…police reforms are not being done. Police is not being trained…policemen in India don’t regard brutality as something which is abhorrent to rights. They feel it’s a part of the game.” However, he clarified that Police is not all bad. “We’ve seen a very gentle face of the police during these Covid times, where they helped people,” he said while stressing that lack of proper training has plagued the system. Inter alia, he expressed concern over inclination of the legal system in favour of the rich and powerful. “Our legal system is really geared up in favour of the rich…When the rich and powerful are behind bars they keep filing bail applications only to get an order that their trail may be expedited…their trial is being expedited at the cost of some poor man getting legal aid, whose legal aid is not doing the same sort of job of filing bail applications timely,” he explained. He also made crucial remarks upon registration of FIRs and arrests of student protesters and journalists, in relation to the anti-CAA protests. “I agree that a lot of these cases should be just thrown out…in fact in my view, this law of sedition should be thrown out…I think most of the trial court judges have not even read the judgment in previous cases on what amounts to sedition. If they read that, even FIR will not made a case for sedition. Why are they issuing notices…” he said. This is not the first time that Justice Gupta has voiced against the law of sedition. In a speech delivered as part of Justice PD Desai Memorial Lecture at Ahmadabad in September 2019, he said “The last few years have given rise to a number of cases where the law of sedition or creating disharmony have been misused rampantly by the police to arrest and humiliate people who have not committed the crime of sedition as laid down by the Constitution Bench of Supreme Court. The manner in which the provisions of Section 124A are being misused, begs the question as to whether we should have a relook at it. Freedom of expression being a constitutional right must get primacy over laws of sedition” During the interview Justice Gupta reiterated, “as long as a protest is peaceful, as long as it is setting up your constitutional rights, you have a right to protest against the government in power.” Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Bill Gates’s software empire was found to be in breach of monopoly laws and ordered by the federal judge to divide into two sections – one operating systems business managing Windows and an applications business managing its Office business software. Jackson’s ruling starts the break-up process straight away, forcing Microsoft to produce a break-up plan within four months. Other restrictions will come into effect immediately, which the company fears will damage its day-to-day operations. Microsoft has fought provisions obliging it to distribute secret software codes to the industry. CEO Steve Ballmer vowed to fight the decision by fast-tracking the case to the Supreme Court. IndependentBT incentive scheme could bring criticism• Up to 3,000 BT directors and managers could be eligible for bonuses worth up to four-and-a-half times their salaries if an incentive scheme is approved next month. But the new share-based plan – which offers BT’s executive directors, senior executive team members and 2,500 management professionals shares worth 200 per cent of their salary – could attract criticism because of the size of the awards. BT’s CEO Peter Bonfield could reportedly net £10.5m over a three-year period. Hundreds of managers could earn close to £1m each over the same period. BT is also introducing retention shares worth 100 per cent of salary for staff with critical skills. The annual bonus worth 100 per cent of salary and the deferred bonus scheme which pays out 50 per cent of salary will continue. This means executives qualified for incentive, retention, bonus and deferred bonus could receive the equivalent of five-and-a-half times their salaries.

first_imgShell growth in Yoldia eightsi was measured over an austral summer and winter in 1992. In specimens 27 mm length did not increase in length. Tissue dry and ash-free dry mass (AFDM) cycles were assessed at monthly intervals between December 1988 and January 1991. ANCOVA indicated significant interannual and seasonal effects on this cycle. Tissue mass increased in the summer, coinciding with the phytoplankton bloom and the period of maximum sedimentation of organic material from the water column. A standard 20-mm-length animal reached a maximum AFDM of 114 mg in February 1990. The minimum value (68 mg AFDM) throughout the 2 years of measurements was in early December 1988, at the end of the austral winter. Periods of tissue mass increase were, therefore, decoupled from shell growth, at least in juveniles. Tissue mass was significantly higher in 1990 than 1989, which was mainly due to high organic contents in the summer (January to May). This was not consistent with the pattern of organic content in the sediments at the study site, but was in phase with the cycle in sediment chlorophyll a content. Tissue mass increase depended on major resource input during the summer, but Y. eightsi was capable of maintaining winter condition from stocks of benthic microalgae in years of poor ice cover. Tissue mass declined between April and July each year. This was accompanied by large falls in tissue ash content, and coincided with the spawning period in early June. These are the first monthly tissue mass data collected over a 2-year period for an Antarctic mollusc. They are the first such data indicating seasonal variation in tissue mass and showing a decoupling of shell and tissue growth in a polar bivalve. The P/B ratio calculated from these data was 0.106, which is slightly lower than previous values found for this species, but is in line with general values for Antarctic marine benthos.last_img read more
