Thursday the Coalition for Safe Affordable Food called on lawmakers to reach a compromise on a national GMO labeling bill. Chuck Conner, National Council of Farmer Cooperatives president and CEO and co-chair of the coalition said negotiations are close to the finish line and he encouraged Senate leadership to finish off the small remaining differences.“We need a win here,” he said. “We need them to finish, turn it back to us to go about the business of having our coalition and the 800 organizations that we represent, look at this and make the case before the Senate and the House that this is critical and has to happen within the next few legislative days here.”Pam Bailey is the other coalition co-chair and president and CEO of the Grocery Manufacturers Association. She said as of today the state of Vermont alone is effectively establishing national food labeling policy for GMO’s. The effects are already being felt.“Inaction by congress as the Vermont law’s July 1st effective date looms, has already cost our industry millions and millions of dollars. Our coalition has consistently opposed mandatory, on-package GMO labels. We believe these on-package labels don’t provide consumers with any useful information. They will be seen as a warning and they will be used to stigmatize perfectly safe food and beverage products.”Steve Censky, American Soybean Association CEO added there are many benefits to the use of this crop technology.“Ag biotechnology has helped farmers to make both insect pest control and weed management safer while safeguarding crops against disease,” Censky explained. “It has allowed for a significant reduction in the use of pesticides and promoted no-till or reduced till agriculture systems that help preserve topsoil from erosion and enhance water quality.”Leslie Sarasin, Food Marketing Institute president and CEO gave one example of why a national law is needed.It’s not at all unusual for one distribution center to service five or more states. So Vermont’s law and those expected to come from Maine, Massachusetts, and other states in that region, will quickly make New England’s food labeling law so fragmented that a simple granola bar will be required to be labeled 5 different ways to meet the requirements of the various jurisdictions.”The Coalition for Safe, Affordable Food is a broad-based coalition representing the entire American agriculture food chain. It is committed to increasing the public’s understanding about the science and safety of GMOs and advocating for a uniform labeling solution. Their press call Thursday was to ask Senate Agriculture Chairman Pat Roberts and Ranking Member Debbie Stabenow to come to an agreement quickly, before the Vermont law goes into effect July 1.

He told them he had begun a new hunger-strike. In recent weeks, he said, guards had served him countermined food, banned him from reading, seized his letters, stopped his daily exercise periods and threatened him.He said he had also been placed in solitary confinement for two days with only stale bread to eat after being accused of inciting prisoners to go on hunger-strike. His family said he was very thin and depressed. He had staged an earlier hunger-strike from 17 to 30 January to protest against prison conditions and demand his release.Yahyaoui, founder of the website TUNeZINE, was jailed on 4 June last year after being arrested by plainclothes police in a Tunis cybercafé. He was sentenced to two years in prison for “spreading false news” by the appeals court in Tunis on 10 July. During his interrogation, he was tortured with three sessions of being made to hang by his arms with feet barely touching the ground.Using the pseudonym “Ettounsi” (Arabic for “Tunisian”), he set up his website in July 2001 to put out news about the fight for democracy and freedom in Tunisia. He published opposition material on it and was the first to publish a letter from his uncle, Judge Mokhtar Yahyaoui, to President Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali criticising the country’s legal system.Jebali, publisher of the weekly Al Fajr, organ of the An Nahada Islamist militant movement, has been held since 1991 and was sentenced in 1992 by the Tunis military court to 16 years in prison for “aggressively seeking to change the nature of the state” and “belonging to an illegal organisation.” The previous year, he had been given a one-year sentence for publishing an article criticising the system of military courts.He went on hunger-strike from mid-January to mid-February this year in protest against jail conditions and to demand his freedom. In mid-March, he was moved from Bizerte prison to one in Sfax._________________________________________________________Over 13 years ago, Reporters without Borders created its “Sponsorship Programme” and called upon the international media to select and support an imprisoned journalist.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will resume Real Estate Assessment Center (REAC) inspections of HUD multifamily and public housing properties and units next month, under strict safety protocols as the nation attempts to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, Secretary Ben Carson announced today.REAC inspections are the assessment tool that ensures HUD assisted properties meet federal standards of health, safety, and accessibility. On-site inspections were halted last March due to the coronavirus outbreak.“As we continue to fight this invisible enemy and learn more about the safety precautions needed to keep our HUD residents and staff safe, we are able to bring back critical functions of the Department,” Carson said. “Physical inspections are vital in ensuring the health and safety of the Americans who reside in properties enrolled in HUD’s programs, and I am very pleased to announce today they are resuming.”Hunter Kurtz, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian Housing added, “REAC inspections provide a critical service in HUD assisted properties to ensure residents are living in safe and decent housing. I believe we have found a solution to continue this important function while keeping staff, residents, and inspectors healthy.”To keep the residents and staff of HUD properties safe during the inspection process, REAC will prioritize inspections in states and localities based on the latest COVID-19 data from Johns Hopkins University and health risk scoring methodology from the Harvard Global Health Institute. REAC has developed a heat map that categorizes states and localities into four risk categories:Low Risk—GreenModerately Low Risk—YellowModerately High Risk—OrangeHigh Risk—RedREAC will provide a listing on its website of low-risk counties 45 days prior to the start of physical inspections. At the end of the 45-day period, REAC will provide a 14-day notification to priority properties in that county to inform families that an inspection will take place.The first outreach from inspectors to properties will start no earlier than September 21, 2020. A comprehensive list of safe inspection locations, as well as an overview of the methodology used to determine them can be found on the website here.Inspectors will prioritize properties with historically low REAC scores (high-risk properties) in Low Risk (Green) localities. These locations will change over time, and HUD will adjust its inspection plans as needed. For additional information on HUD’s coronavirus response efforts, please visit HUD.gov/coronavirus.

Human Sufferings And The Pandemic: Accessibility Of Legal Services Authorities Vital For Unlocking The Rights And Empowering People

Lakhs of people have lost their means of livelihood. Farmers are bearing the brunt. Daily wagers have no work, and hence no income. Thousands of migrants are walking hundreds of kilometers to reach their homes, with their small children. Hungry and thirsty, but they are still walking. Pregnant lady gave birth on the road while walking back to her village for hundreds of kilometers. Many migrants got killed in the accidents. Where are the State Agencies? Have they become Rip Van Winkle? Instead of finding them, let’s delve into it from another angle, the factor of breach of the rights and protections provided by the laws. There are almost 200 laws which deal directly or indirectly with the children. There are number of laws which deal with laborers and women. Above all, there is a Constitution of India providing Right to Life, which obviously is much more than the mere animal existence. Where have these promises and protections gone, particularly for the migrants and the poor? Did we enact welfare laws for the normal times only? Have they ceased to operate during the unprecedented times like this? The reason for it is crystal clear. The poor and marginalized for whom these rights and entitlements are meant do not know them. They do not know how to navigate the complex administrative and judicial setup. They do not know how to access their entitlements. They do know the institutions meant for them. They do not know that their problems have legal dimensions and can be best solved in a legal way. In short, they are not legally empowered. The unresolved problems aggravate, and become complex and multifaceted legal issues with disastrous cascading effects. In the post lockdown period, the distress may manifest itself in the form of marital disputes, issues between employers and employees, disputes between landlords and tenants, impact on rights of children as poverty may deepen. Apart from that human trafficking may also increase, an important aspect to be taken care of by the public Authorities. The indirect impact of the Covid-19 may be more lethal than the direct effect. The problems and the legal needs and issues are likely to increase. In such a scenario, Legal Services Authorities have an important role to play. They are the mandated by legislation to provide free legal services to certain categories of people including women, children persons with disabilities, persons with disabilities, industrial workmen, SC and ST and persons having annual income less than the prescribed and to make them aware of their rights and entitlements. Legal Services Authorities have presence in each and every district across the country, and have their reach till the grassroots. This massive network need to be more accessible to people to mitigate the sufferings of poor and for promoting and protecting their rights. The services of these Authorities will be required more than ever before. During and post lockdown period, legal Services Authorities have to proactively enhance its visibility particularly in rural areas so as to make public aware of their existence and the types of services being provided free of costs. This is also imperative to instill faith and awareness amongst masses that these Institutions have not ceased to work even during lockdown. Spreading legal awareness about rights and entitlements amongst masses is also required on a massive scale. To make this happen, instead of conventional methods some other methodologies are required to be applied by the Legal Services Authorities. Legal awareness camps cannot be held in the way these were held earlier. The shift is required to make more use of other tools such as Community Radios, You tube channel, television channels, local cable TV, Bulk SMS messages, and webinars. Some of these cost saving tools have reach in rural India also, and hence can facilitate spreading of quality awareness. Most importantly, coordination with other government departments and NGOs and law colleges is the key for achieving maximum reach. This in fact is also provided in sections 5,8 and 11 of the Legal Services Authorities Act. Better coordination will not only help in making impact at the grass roots but will also reduce operational costs. Legal aid helpline numbers need to be strengthened and popularized by Legal aid Authorities. In collaboration with the call centres, these helplines can work in a more systematic manner. National Legal aid helpline number 15100 shall be the backbone during these times. This can provide relief to many, and make people aware of the support system. It will make legal aid authorities more accessible to people. PLVs with proper training on preventive measures can compile legal needs of people of their local areas, and transmit it to District Legal Services Authorities for appropriate action. To provide expeditious justice at the local level, mediations centers may be activated gradually, particularly to deal with marital and family disputes. In the urban areas, video tools may be used for conducting the counselling in such cases. Legal Services Clinics in far flung and remote areas can be used for mediation with appropriate social distancing and other preventive measures in place. Organizing Lok Adalats with proper precautions on a small level quite frequently instead for going for Pan India Lok Adalats is one of the steps which may help in settlement of disputes. Testing online methods of ADR in a district or so can be done, and thereafter the same can be expanded to other areas with course corrections. More use of social media to disseminate information about the activities, and capturing the legal problems of people is needed on a large scale. The Legal Services Authorities need to collaborate with other government departments, law Colleges, NGos working at the grassroots to maximize their reach and access. Competent Legal aid and assistance should be the main focus of Legal Services Authorities, and the priorities in the changing and challenging times are required to be identified keeping in view the financially constrained environment which may emerge. The Legal Services Authorities have to identify the target groups, and work with clear goals for providing assistance to the targeted groups. Apart from this, long term planning and restructuring in the new emerging scenario with atleast five years vision plan with measurable goals may help in taking the Legal Services Authorities to the next level in terms of quality delivery of legal services and enhancing its accessibility. Legal Services with their committed workforce are doing exemplary work during the lockdown period. Lakhs of people have benefitted with their active interventions. However, they have to focus now more on new methods of identifying legal needs of people and providing appropriate legal aid and assistance and increase its accessibility to the poorest. New sustainable tools of legal empowerment of people need to be worked out by these Authorities. Legal empowerment leads to impact. It leads to institutional corrections, and then State Agencies cannot afford to remain invisible and go to Catskill Mountain.Author is now working as Presiding officer Labour court cum Industrial Tribunal Rohtak.Views Are Personal Only.

Multiple colonization and dispersal events hide the early origin and induce a lack of genetic structure of the moss Bryum argenteum in Antarctica.

first_imgThe dispersal routes of taxa with transoceanic disjunctions remain poorly understood, with the potential roles of Antarctica not yet demonstrated. Mosses are suitable organisms to test direct intra‐Antarctic dispersal, as major component of the extant Antarctic flora, with the cosmopolitan moss Bryum argenteum as ideal target species. We analyzed the genetic structure of B. argenteum to provide an evolutionary time frame for its radiation and shed light into its historical biogeography in the Antarctic region. We tested two alternative scenarios: (a) intra‐Antarctic panmixia and (b) intra‐Antarctic genetic differentiation. Furthermore, we tested for evidence of the existence of specific intra‐Antarctic dispersal routes. Sixty‐seven new samples (40 collected in Antarctica) were sequenced for ITS nrDNA and rps4 cpDNA regions, and phylogenetic trees of B. argenteum were constructed, with a focus on its Southern Hemisphere. Combining our new nrDNA dataset with previously published datasets, we estimated time‐calibrated phylogenies based on two different substitution rates (derived from angiosperms and bryophytes) along with ancestral area estimations. Minimum spanning network and pairwise genetic distances were also calculated. B. argenteum was potentially distributed across Africa and Antarctica soon after its origin. Its earliest intra‐Antarctic dispersal and diversification occurred during a warming period in the Pliocene. On the same timescale, a radiation took place involving a dispersal event from Antarctica to the sub‐Antarctic islands. A more recent event of dispersal and diversification within Antarctica occurred during a warm period in the Pleistocene, creating favorable conditions also for its colonization outside the Antarctic continent worldwide. We provide evidence supporting the hypothesis that contemporary populations of B. argenteum in Antarctica integrate a history of both multiple long‐range dispersal events and local persistence combined with in situ diversification. Our data support the hypothesis that B. argenteum has been characterized by strong connectivity within Antarctica, suggesting the existence of intra‐Antarctic dispersal routes.last_img read more
