The site includes a calculator that will calculate the hourly income of a visitor based on the figure they give for their annual income. Advertisement The British Red Cross’ campaign is therefore an odd mixture of being very behind the times in terms of simply testing the banner ad for the first time, yet being up with the more active online fundraising charities in not only accepting direct debits online but specifically promoting them.center_img Tagged with: Digital Research / statistics Howard Lake | 18 March 2004 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Senate Ag Committee Releases Draft of Proposed Farm Bill

first_img Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – May 9, 2013 Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Senate Ag Committee Releases Draft of Proposed Farm Bill SHARE The bill consolidates 23 existing conservation programs into 13 programs—while maintaining existing tools to protect and conserve land, water and wildlifeStreamlining programs provides added flexibility and focuses conservation around four primary functions: working lands conservation, the Conservation Reserve Program, regional partnerships, and easements to help prevent sprawl and protect wetlandsThese reforms save money while still increasing resources for top prioritiesBecause we are truly doing more with less, changes to conservation policies are supported by nearly 650 conservation organizations from all 50 statesImproving Program Accountability – The Senate Farm Bill increases accountability in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) by: The official committee print of the 2013 Farm Bill is now available on the Senate Agriculture Committee website. According to Committee Chair Debbie Stabenow – the bipartisan 2013 Farm Bill represents the most significant reform of American agriculture policy in decades. She notes the era of direct payments comes to an end with the Agriculture Reform, Food and Jobs Act – with the bill creating risk management tools that support farmers when they are negatively impacted by weather disaster or market events beyond their control. According to Stabenow – by ending unnecessary subsidies, streamlining and consolidating programs and cracking down on abuse the bill will yield a total of 23-billion dollars in cuts to agriculture programs – including cuts made due to the sequester. She notes that is more than double the amount recommended by the bipartisan Simpson-Bowles commission and the Gang of Six. Stabenow says the Senate’s 2013 Farm Bill strengthens top priorities that help farmers, ranchers and small business owners create jobs. With the current farm bill set to expire September 30th – Stabenow says Congress must pass legislation this year to provide farmers the certainty they need to keep driving our economic recovery. She says 16-million jobs hang in the balance. The Committee is set to markup the measure next Tuesday.Here are some of the highlights outlined in Chairwoman Stabenow’s summary of the Agriculture Reform, Food and Jobs Act of 2013:Reform – The 2013 Senate Farm Bill reforms farm programs to save taxpayer dollars, while providing farmers with a responsible risk management system that only helps farmers when they experience substantial losses due to events beyond their control. Senate Ag Committee Releases Draft of Proposed Farm Bill Eliminates direct payments. Farmers will no longer receive payments when prices are rising and support is not needed. Ending these subsidies and creating responsible risk management is a major shift in American farm policyCaps remaining risk management support at $50,000 per personEnds Farm Payments to Non-Farmers. This bill closes the “management loophole,” through which people who were not actually farming—in many cases not even setting foot on the farm—were designated as farm “managers” so they could receive farm paymentsStrengthens crop insurance and expands access so farmers are not wiped out by bad weatherIncludes disaster relief for producers hurt by drought, spring freeze, and other weather disastersReforming farm programs, ending direct payments and implementing market-oriented programs to help farmers manage risk saves $16 billion dollars ($12 billion in the bill, $4 billion through sequestration)Consolidating and Streamlining Programs – The Senate Farm Bill eliminates over 100 programs and authorizations under the Agriculture Committee’s jurisdiction. Continuing Growth in America’s Diverse Agricultural Economy – The Agriculture Reform, Food and Jobs Act increases efficiency and accountability, saving tens of billions of dollars overall, while still strengthening agricultural jobs initiatives through: SHARE Source: NAFB News Service Stopping lottery winners from continuing to receive assistancePreventing states from providing $1 per year in home heating assistance to individuals who do not have a heating bill for the sole purpose of providing extra benefits above what they would normally receiveEnding misuse by college students whose families are not truly low-incomeCracking down on retailers and recipients engaged in benefit traffickingIncreasing requirements to prevent liquor and tobacco stores from accepting food assistance benefitsThe above savings reduce the deficit while continuing support for food banks, seniors’ food programs and healthy school lunch initiatives Export opportunities to help farmers find new global markets for their goodsHelp for family farmers to sell locally, increasing support for farmers’ markets and spurring the creation of food hubs to connect farmers to schools and other community-based organizationsTraining and access to capital to make it easier for beginning farmers to get off the groundInitiatives to help American veterans start agriculture businessesGrowth in bio-based manufacturing (businesses producing goods in America from raw agricultural products grown in America) to create rural agriculture and urban manufacturing jobsInnovation in bio-energy production, supporting non-food based advanced biomass energy production such as cellulosic ethanol and woody biomass powerResearch to promote the commercialization of new agricultural innovationsRural development initiatives to help rural communities upgrade infrastructure, extend broadband internet availability and create a better environment for small businesses[Other Farm Bill Draft HighlightsThe draft farm bill released by the Senate Ag Committee is more than 11-hundred pages in length. Some aspects not highlighted by Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow include the establishment of a new Adverse Market Payments program – which would be based on reference prices. Like last year’s bill – the measure establishes the Agricultural Risk Coverage program. The bill also reauthorizes the sugar program, includes the dairy program favored by milk producers, extends the Food for Peace Act and reduces the size of the Conservation Reserve Program. The recent agreement between farm and conservation groups to create a tie between crop insurance eligibility and conservation compliance with no income tests for premium subsidies is not included in the draft. Instead – it includes the conservation compliance language proposed by Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss last year – which was adopted by the full Senate. Also included is the gross income means test introduced by Dick Durbin of Illinois and Tom Coburn of Oklahoma.Thoughts on Senate Ag Committee 2013 Farm Bill DraftThe Senate Ag Committee has released its initial draft of the 2013 Farm Bill – and it does not include the Egg Products Inspection Act amendments of 2013. But National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Vice President of Government Affairs Colin Woodall says it most likely will come up again in relation to this farm bill. The National Farmers Union is encouraged the draft has been circulated to Senate Ag members in advance of the committee’s markup next week.NFU President Roger Johnson says NFU is please target price protection was added to the bill – but the organization believes target prices need to be increased and balanced in a meaningful way to be substantial. Johnson says NFU also is encouraged SNAP remains virtually unchanged from last year’s bill – as he says it’s crucial to continue providing a safety net to those who are food insecure in this country. He says NFU expects the House Ag Committee to follow suit very soon and is pleased to see movement in both chambers – since September 30th is quickly approaching.

Third Limerick estate faces drinking water ban

Local residents are waiting to be issued with the same notice that was recently received by residents in Kileely and Ballynanty warning them not to drink their tap water or use it to prepare food.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Sinn Fein councillor for City North, Maurice Quinlivan said he is deeply concerned but not at all surprised that a home in St Mary’s Park, after testing for lead, had limits above the legally accepted amounts.“Many people, including myself, suspected that this was the situation and a huge number of people in the area had stopped drinking the water until they were sure it was safe. This testing has unfortunately confirmed their concerns.“I assume that Irish Water will issue a public notice like they have in Ballynanty and Kileely with advice from the HSE that the Water is ‘unsafe to drink’,” Cllr Quinlivan predicted.“It is also clear that there are other estates with lead pipes where people may be drinking water that is not safe. I am now repeating the call I have made on numerous occasions that Irish Water immediately publish a list of homes in the City that have lead pipes. I am also repeating the request that a detailed plan be put in place with a timescales as to when all theses pipes will be removed,” he said.Cllr Quinlivan insists that a major testing of water supplies needs to be undertaken by Irish Water across the city to allay the fears held by a huge number of Limerick people.“Irish Water has a terrible reputation since it’s inception and this is an opportunity for them to address the lack faith that people have of them,” he concluded.

The Additional Sessions Judge Vinod Yadav disposed of the bail plea of Shah Alam, while questioning the beat constables as to why they waited till 06.03.2020 (when their statements U/s 161 Cr.P.C was recorded by the IO) to name the applicant (Shah Alam), when they had categorically seen and identified the applicant indulging in riots on the date of incident, i.e 25.02.2020. The Court said, “Being police official(s), what stopped them from reporting the matter then and there in the PS or to bring the same in the knowledge of higher police officers. This casts a serious doubt on the credibility of these witnesses.” Importantly, the Court said, “The prosecution has not been able to point out the role of applicant being different/distinct to the aforesaid co-accused persons, except for the fact that applicant is younger brother of principal accused Tahir Hussain.” Notably, the Court also remarked, “He cannot be made to incarcerate in jail for infinity merely on account of the fact that he is younger brother of principal accused Tahir Hussain or that other persons who were part of the riotous mob have to be identified and arrested in the matter.” The instant Case (FIR No.80/2020) is a “general case” about the use of the building of principal accused Tahir Hussain by the rioters as well as commission of acts of arson and looting of public and private property(ies). In this backdrop, the Court said, “In this case, only one witness has been added. I have been taken through his complaint, and upon a perusal of the endorsement made on the complaint, it appears that the name of this witness has been kept deliberately in this case, as there was no other independent witness.” Further, considering the facts and circumstances of the case in totality, applicant Shah Alam was admitted to bail in the matter on his furnishing a Personal Bond in the sum of Rs.20,000/- (Rupees Twenty Thousand Only) with one surety in the like amount to the satisfaction of Ld.CMM/Ld.Illaka MM/Ld.Duty MM.
