first_img The recall involves 1,760 cartons of cantaloupe that were sold at Sam’s Club stores in Johnstown, N.Y., and Pottsville, Pa., between Jun 2 and 17, the notice said. The problem was detected in routine testing done by New York agriculture officials on behalf of the US Department of Agriculture. No illnesses were mentioned. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced today that sprouts labeled “Evergreen Produce” are suspected as the cause of Salmonella Entertidis infections in Idaho, Montana, New Jersey, North Dakota, and Washington. The agency said one patient was hospitalized. The earlier outbreak tied to cantaloupe involved 21 cases of Salmonella Panama in 11 states, most of them in the West. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced Jun 23 that the outbreak appeared to be over, as there had been no new case reports since Apr 22. The alfalfa sprouts are packaged in 4-ounce, 16-ounce, 1-pound, and 5-pound bags, and the spicy sprouts are sold in 4-ounce and 1-pound bags, the FDA said. Jun 27, 2011 (CIDRAP News) – Sprouts are the suspected cause of 20 Salmonella infections in five states, while an earlier Salmonella outbreak linked to cantaloupes is probably over, according to federal officials. An Associated Press (AP) report said the sprouts were produced by Evergreen Produce in Moyie Springs, Idaho, in the northern part of the state. The FDA said people who have alfalfa sprouts or spicy sprouts in bags labeled “Evergreen Produce” or “Evergreen Produce Inc.” should discard them in sealed bags. At least 30 illness outbreaks have been linked to various kinds of raw and lightly cooked sprouts since 1996, most of them involving Salmonella or Escherichia coli, the FDA said. The agency said children, the elderly, pregnant women, and people with weakened immune systems should not eat raw sprouts, and consumers in general should cook sprouts thoroughly.

first_imgBy Fr. Glenn JonesSo these days we find ourselves in the midst of a health crisis … spawning an economic and financial crisis in its wake. Tanking markets. Fear, uncertainty, trepidation, worry. Isolation against an invisible enemy. Empty streets. Vacant airports. Closures. Shortages. Unemployment. Lockdowns. Dire forecasts.  Flattening, but extending, “the curve”.…Opportunity.One of the most pervasive misconceptions about the divine is that, if we are good people, God should make everything hunky-dory for us all the time. Well, for one thing, who among us is truly good? Even Jesus challenged His interlocutor: “Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone” (Mark 10:18) … in one sense asking the young man: “Do you recognize me?” But more broadly, who among us has never known hardship of some kind? O whiney Christian, who in the Bible did not go through proverbial fire to reach greater holiness … greater happiness, the fruit of holiness? Abraham? Jacob? Moses? Nope. David or Solomon? Uh-uh. The prophets? Ever get thrown down a cistern like Jeremiah?How about the New Testament? John the Baptist? Lost his head. The apostles? Tortured and murdered. Jesus own mother?; certainly God would spare her? Watched her Son die on a cross. How about God’s own beloved child? Beaten, scourged, reviled, crucified. Christian saints? Nope … not a one; in fact, hardship proved their sanctity.On a related note, very many churches have closed in order to help with slowing the spread of the coronavirus. A misconception that many pious have subsequently raised is: “God wouldn’t allow people in church—His house!—to be infected!” Well, using that logic, He wouldn’t allow a church to burn either. But … remember Notre Dame? Or the tragic church shootings of recent times. The martyrdom of Bishop St. Thomas Becket, slain before the altar? Or the martyrdom of Bishop St. Oscar Romero in 1980, gunned down while celebrating Mass? Or, even more recently, 85-year-old Father Jacques Hamel in 2016 … throat slit at the altar?As God is Creator, physical laws are His laws as well … and the coronavirus will act in accordance with those laws. Therefore, like Jesus, we are not to “put the Lord to the test” just as He did not throw Himself off of the temple (Matthew 4:5-7) … just as we wouldn’t go into a burning church simply because it’s our regularly-scheduled service.So … where’s this “opportunity” I mentioned. After all, hardships are hardly appealing. But, as the saints proved themselves and their faith in hardship, we,  too, are called to remain faithful and charitable now more than ever. That is the major theme of the story of Job—that even the good may suffer even extreme loss and trial, but the righteous man/woman remains faithful nonetheless … to be rewarded by God beyond measure for that fidelity. Christians remember in times of difficulty that we are not to despair … not to love the consolations of God more than the God of consolations. He tells us: “I will put [them] into the fire, and refine them as one refines silver, and test them as gold is tested.They will call on my name, and I will answer them. I will say, ‘They are my people’; and they will say, ‘The LORD is my God.’” (Zecariah 13:9)We must look beyond the present moment toward the final goal. After all, what worthwhile thing does not require effort and trial?  As St. Paul wrote: “I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.” (Romans 8:18) Even Jesus did not receive all that He requested in prayer … praying for deliverance from His coming passion just before His arrest. And yet, more importantly, He provided example for us in also praying to the Father: “Not my will, but thine, be done.” (Luke 22:42) That is perhaps the greatest prayer of all—that we ask that God’s will be done through us, for His will IS the Good. And His will is accomplished through us when we continue in faith, and live according to His Word.Poor disciples … poor soldiers of God we would be if we fled from difficulty and hardship. Our situation today seems dire because we live in such a time and society of plenty and ease relative to times before ours. But the higher we are, the farther it is to fall. Yet someone from a poor country might be unimpressed, and ask: “What’s the big deal? You’re still living a lot better than WE do!” Perspective … perspective.Yes, when the going gets tough … the tough get going! The philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche famously said: “That which does not kill us makes us stronger.” And so … yes, with trial comes opportunity … to teach our youth resilience, determination, strength, wise preparation, and—perhaps most of all—charity. To prove ourselves in faith, refusing to capitulate in the face of challenge. To look into hardship and say with Edmond Dantes: “Do your worst, for I shall do mine!” To be able to proclaim with St. Paul at the terminus of this situation: “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” (2 Timothy 4:7) To be lights to the world in times of the darkness of doubt through charity and kindness, for the paradox of charity is that the more we empty ourselves to help others, the more we ourselves are filled. For those temporarily without church services, consider meditating on the “Song of Songs”, a.k.a., “the Song of Solomon” in the Bible. It begins as a romantic dialogue of two lovers, followed by the bride’s emptiness when the bridegroom is lost: “I sought him whom my soul loves; I sought him, but found him not; I called him, but he gave no answer.” (Song of Solomon 3:1). That is how Christians might feel at the present moment: where is the bridegroom? But then … reunion, and intensified love: “I found him whom my soul loves. I held him, and would not let him go…” (Solomon 3:3-4) The eternal embrace of bride and bridegroom.Does God ever forget us? Of course not. “Can a mother forget her infant, be without tenderness for the child of her womb? Even should she forget, I will never forget you. See, upon the palms of my hands I have written your name…” (Isaiah 49:15-16) God is nearer to us than we are to ourselves … and so let us come ever nearer to Him, proving ourselves by loving God and neighbor, especially in trying times … for “Jesus, I trust in You.”Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses…let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross… and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. (Hebrews 12:1-2)Rev. Glenn Jones is the Vicar General of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe and former pastor of Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church in Los Alamos.last_img read more

first_img Name and address supplied I write in response to previous articles regarding best value tendering, in particular Graeme Hydari’s letter (see [2009] Gazette, 16 July, 9). If you decide to publish this letter, I would appreciate it if you could hold back my name and firm details, as this is a personal view and not one necessarily shared by my firm. As a procurement professional working for a national law firm, I wholeheartedly support the idea of BVT and believe that it drives economically sound solutions to supply issues. While many lawyers may view the law as a discrete service, in reality they are simply supplying a customer with a service and therefore BVT is an appropriate tool to use. However, crucial to the success of BVT is the need for good procurement practice. Botched privatisations have undoubtedly been the fault of poor implementation of BVT, rather than of the principle itself. A good buyer would understand the market, understand the issues facing the sellers in that market and build a detailed and complete specification of the service required (which takes into account unknown factors/variables). In addition, the buyer will also take a long-term view and not be blinded by short-term cash incentives. Best value means just that – best value – not necessarily cheapest! Understandably, however, there has been some scepticism as no one has been in a position to assess the strength of the Legal Services Commission’s procurement team. Perhaps the best thing the LSC can do to reassure firms in this market is to confirm that they have employed appropriately qualified and experienced procurement professionals, who will take into account all of the issues and take the time to do this properly. The sooner the legal profession as a whole embraces best value tendering instead of fighting against it, the easier it will be for all concerned.last_img read more

first_imgLarge law firms struggling with cash flow problems will find it easier to obtain an extension on their tax deadline following a change in the rules adopted by HM Revenue & Customs. The new policy will extend the revenue’s Business Payments Support Service (BPSS) to large partnerships, which had previously been overlooked. Before the rule change, each partner at a law firm seeking to delay its tax payment was obliged to negotiate individually with the Revenue. However, a firm may now nominate one individual – probably a finance director or tax adviser – to act on its behalf. The firm can arrange a joint time-to-pay agreement through the BPSS if it can demonstrate that the partners will be able to pay their tax liability in full in the next 12 months. The new rules will apply irrespective of the aggregate size of partners’ liabilities. However, an application on behalf of a large partnership with more than £1m of tax owed will be dealt with by senior customs officers. Such firms should expect to be asked to provide detailed financial forecasts. The development will be welcomed by many large practices experiencing difficulty in meeting tax bills. A recent survey of 120 law firms by accountants Smith & Williamson showed that 40% found managing cash flow to be an issue. Richard Mannion (pictured), national tax director at Smith & Williamson, said: ‘This development is a major breakthrough for any sizeable practice which might be feeling pressure on cash flow in the current climate. ‘Inevitably, problems and inconsistencies occurred when there were, say, 50, 100 or more partners, typically spread over different offices, each trying to draw up their own arrangement with the local tax inspector. The old system just didn’t work.’The BPSS was introduced in 2008 to help firms experiencing financial difficulties because of the economic climate, by providing a fast-track response for time-to-pay applications.last_img read more

first_imgA former City solicitor has failed in his attempt to overturn a Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal decision which removed him from the roll with a six-figure costs bill. Alexis Maitland Hudson, admitted in 1975, was struck off last year and ordered to pay interim costs of £300,000. Appealing on the ground of procedural unfairness, Maitland Hudson said he had been ‘substantially impaired’ in his ability to defend himself. On the eve of a hearing in January 2018 he had admitted himself to a private psychiatric hospital for depression. Ruling in the Administrative Court, Lord Justice Green and Mrs Justice Carr found that the SDT had been alive to Maitland Hudson’s health difficulties from the outset and made adjustments to accommodate him throughout. These included ‘repeated adjournments’ and the ‘unprecedented step’ of the SRA offering ’significant financial support’ towards Maitland Hudson’s legal costs.Agreeing with Mrs Justice Carr’s lead judgment Green LJ noted that Maitland Hudson had argued that he would not recover from his mental disability until the ordeal presented by the SDT proceedings was at an end, but also that his mental state was such that an adjournment of the proceedings was the only lawful course the tribunal could take.These two positions ‘raise the spectre of a classic Catch 22′, Green LJ ruled. ‘The proceedings should, in all fairness, have been adjourned pending the appellant’s recovery but (once adjourned) those proceedings could not be resumed for the very reason that being in abeyance he would remain prone to the disability. It seemed to me that this Catch 22 was part of the appellant’s forensic end game.’ Maitland Hudson was represented by London firm Russell-Cooke which has been contacted for comment.last_img read more

first_imgThe city of Pembroke Pines is pulling a tighter rein on their youth sports programs. Officials have be inundated with complaints of missing money and teams filled with athletes from other municipalities.“There have been ugly accusations, things that have been said…that are quintessentially not Pembroke Pines,” said commissioner Angelo Castillo during a city meeting Wednesday night.The city partners with non-profit youth organizations, such as the West Pembroke Pines Optimists, to handle the organized sports programs on city parks. The city maintains the fields and the clubs run the leagues, which include travel baseball, softball and tackle football. According to Sun Sentinel, a new proposal being considered would implement tighter controls. It would require each club to submit annual reports to the city, including income statements, tax returns and balance sheets. It would also increase the number of city residents on any team from 50 percent to 70 percent.last_img read more

first_imgMay 2019-20 recap at a glanceReviewing the USDA preliminary estimates for May 2020 compared to May 2019:U.S. milk production: 18.84 billion pounds, down 1.1%U.S. cow numbers: 9.37 million, up 37,000 headU.S. average milk per cow per month: 2,011 pounds, down 31 pounds24-state milk production: 17.96 billion pounds, down 1%24-state cow numbers: 8.84 million, up 50,000 head24-state average milk per cow per month: 2,031 pounds, down 32 poundsSource: USDA Milk Production report, June 18, 2020April production, at 18.65 billion pounds, was revised downward about 47 million pounds (0.3%) from last month’s preliminary production estimate. The end result was that year-over-year production increased about 1.2% in April.In case you’re wondering, the USDA National Ag Statistics Service (NASS) estimate attempts to include any dumped milk during the month, with data collected from Federal Milk Marketing Orders and dairy cooperatives.Cow numbers lowerWhile U.S. cow numbers were up from the year before, they were down about 11,000 head from April as more dairy farms faced pressures from lower milk prices and base production restrictions. In the 24 major dairy states, May 2020 cow numbers were down about 12,000 from April 2020.advertisementCompared to a year earlier, May cow numbers are up a combined 72,000 in Texas, Idaho, South Dakota and Colorado but 31,000 lower, collectively, in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Minnesota and California (Table 1). Cow numbers were reported higher in 11 states and lower in 12 states, with Florida unchanged.Based on the USDA estimates, cow numbers were down 3,000 in Wisconsin compared to a month earlier and down 2,000 head each in Iowa, Minnesota, New Mexico and Pennsylvania. South Dakota was the only state to increase the number of cows compared to April.Since bottoming out in June 2019, U.S. cow numbers are up 56,000 head in the 24 major dairy states. Since last July’s low, U.S. cow numbers are up 55,000 head.Milk per cow dropsU.S. average milk output per cow declined by about 1 pound per day, likely due to changes in feed rations to meet milk production base restrictions imposed by co-ops and other milk buyers.A sharp drop in New Mexico, down nearly 6 pounds per day, contributed to the overall decline, with monthly production per cow lower in 17 states (Table 2). Among the major dairy states, only Virginia, Idaho, Illinois, South Dakota and Arizona saw small increases compared to a year earlier.advertisementMichigan remained the national leader in milk production per cow, followed by Colorado, Idaho and Arizona.Volume, percentage growthIdaho led all states in milk volume growth during the month, up 65 million pounds (4.8%) from May 2019, while South Dakota was the leader in percentage growth, up 9.7% (23 million pounds).In contrast, May 2020 milk production was lower than May 2019 in 14 states, with Wisconsin, New Mexico, California and New York down a combined 262 million pounds. With sharply lower milk output per cow, New Mexico milk production dropped 7.2%.Production downturn, demand driving marketsMark Stephenson, director of dairy policy analysis, and Bob Cropp, dairy economics professor emeritus at the University of Wisconsin – Madison, provided an overview of dairy markets in their monthly podcast.The May Milk Production report represents a significant downturn in milk production, as producers responded to COVID-19-related market signals, Cropp said. While cow numbers were down, the bigger drop came in milk production per cow.Some market analysts had said milk production would have to drop as much as 5% to balance supply and demand. At 1%, May’s decline falls short of that level, but several major dairy states did cut back production by 1%-3%, Stephenson said.In addition to tightening supplies, both economists noted dairy markets have also reacted to demand factors, especially government purchases and the reopening of some restaurants in need of refilling their dairy supply pipelines. The price impact has been record-setting.June 2020 Federal Milk Marketing Order (FMMO) Class III and Class IV milk prices are announced on July 1, and they’ll reflect a strong recovery in milk prices. After May FMMO Class III and Class IV milk prices dipped to $12.14 and $10.67 per hundredweight (cwt), respectively, current Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) futures prices have June and July Class III prices at well over $20 per cwt, up more than $8 from May, before softening to under $17 in November 2020-May 2021.June and July CME Class IV futures are up $2.65 and $4.15 per cwt from May, moving back above $15 per cwt in August and above $16 in November.“That shows how sensitive this market is to small changes,” Cropp said.A lot of distressed milk went into cheese production in April, creating a sharp increase in cheese stocks by the end of the month. The next USDA Cold Storage report was scheduled for June 22, and both Cropp and Stephenson were interested in seeing how demand impacted inventories.While milk prices continue to ascend, it’s time to at least consider available risk management tools, Stephenson said.“Know your cost, know your appetite, know your business structure and what you need,” he said. “There are some prices now that are worth establishing a floor.”With current futures prices moving to the optimistic side, there’s plenty of uncertainty on whether those prices can hold. Market direction will hinge on production response to higher prices, as well as food service demand, including whether schools will reopen late this summer and early fall. A second wave of COVID-19 is a threat.“While the possibility is higher, the probability is lower,” Cropp warned, noting he believes actual prices will not surpass current futures prices.View the entire podcast here.   Dave NatzkeEditorProgressive DairyEmail Dave Natzkedave@progressivepublish.com Editor’s note: This article has been updated to include market commentary.Declines in both cow numbers and milk production per cow resulted in lower U.S. milk production in May as dairy farmers adjusted to COVID-19-related production restrictions and low milk prices.advertisementadvertisementlast_img read more

first_imgAt the European Microwave Week 2019, set to take place in Paris this October, Rohde & Schwarz will exhibit its extensive and innovative product and solutions portfolio, addressing various applications in the areas of RF and microwave component testing, over-the-air antenna characterization and conformance testing.Under the motto “Accelerate design. Maximize performance.”, the applications demonstrated at the Rohde & Schwarz booth (580) in Paris Expo Porte de Versailles will cover a number of topics that are currently shaping the industry. The demos range from testing components and modules for 5G NR, SatCom, automotive, radar and EW applications to applications in the mmWave range up to the THz range. In addition, visitors are invited to tap into the knowledge of R&S experts in various seminars and technical workshops covering these topics. RF and microwave component testing One of the highlights that await visitors at their booth will be the updated R&S SMA100B analog microwave signal generator. This instrument is now capable of reaching a frequency of 67 GHz and in overrange up to 72 GHz while offering the purest analog output signals, lowest single-sideband phase noise and highest output power with extremely low harmonics at the same time. This instrument enables the most demanding component, module, and system T&M tasks. At the exhibition, the low phase noise performance of the R&S SMA100B is measured with the R&S FSWP50 high-end phase noise analyzer.At EuMW 2019, Rohde & Schwarz will carry out amplifier tests for 5G NR in the mmWave range (FR2) using different techniques to apply crest factor reduction and predistortion. The setup consists of an R&S FSVA3000 signal and spectrum analyzer with an amplifier measurement option in combination with the R&S SMW200A vector signal generator for characterizing amplifiers with any given stimulus. The amplifier personality provides all results such as AM/AM conversion, gain compression and error vector magnitude (EVM) from a single measurement. The R&S FS-SNS smart noise source is used for noise figure and gain measurements. The R&S ZNA is a new high-end vector network analyzer (VNA) with a wide range of software features and a unique hardware concept, featuring touch-only operation and a DUT-centric approach. The large dynamic range of this solution facilitates quick measurements. Rohde & Schwarz will also demonstrate different setups with the R&S ZNA, one for measuring a satellite downconverter and another one with its mmWave converters for the 330 GHz range. In the latter case, the frequency converters are mounted on plates on a rail, same as with on-wafer tests. The converters’ waveguide flanges can be precisely and reproducibly positioned using the micrometer calipers of the MPI MP80 MicroPositioners. Also featured will be the R&S ZNBT40 vector network analyzer, a true multiport vector network analyzer with up to 24 integrated test ports and excellent measurement characteristics. The VNA setup covers the measurement of ICs for beamforming antennas for 5G NR applications, and also satellite communications and radar applications. Radar Test SolutionsTo address the crucial testing needs required to develop MIMO radar sensors for autonomous driving cars, Rohde & Schwarz will exhibit a test solution at 77 GHz with the R&S RTP high-performance oscilloscope and a harmonic mixer. The R&S RTP provides four coherent channels to measure, for example, the phase difference between the different transmitters. Among the instruments on display at the exhibition is a T&M solution for testing the robustness of automotive radar sensors to interferers. The R&S AREG100A automotive radar echo generator together with the R&S SMB100B RF signal generator form a simple and innovative solution for verifying today’s state-of-the-art and tomorrow’s most advanced radar sensors.Wideband analysis with up to 5 GHz bandwidth of frequency-modulated continuous-wave radar (FMCW) signals for automotive radar or A&D applications up to 77 GHz will be performed using an R&S FSW85 signal and spectrum analyzer, an R&S RTO2064 oscilloscope as a digitizer and an R&S SMW200A vector signal generator with an R&S SMZ90 frequency multiplier. OTA Antenna Test SolutionsAt EuMW 2019, Rohde & Schwarz will perform over-the-air (OTA) characterization of passive and active RX/TX modules featuring the R&S ATS800R, a unique rack-based compact antenna test range (CATR) antenna test system for measuring error vector magnitude (EVM) and adjacent channel leakage ratio (ACLR) in FR2.Another setup shows thermal effects diagnosis between –40°C and +85°C in an RF OTA chamber, a crucial element of 5G device testing. On display is the R&S ATS-TEMP temperature bubble that can be placed in the R&S ATS1000 antenna test system (not on display). This solution makes it possible for the first time ever to combine testing in an RF OTA chamber and climatic chamber testing into a single procedure. And last but not least, R&S will exhibit its new solution for non-signaling device testing in the lab and production with an R&S CMP200 radio communication tester fitted with remote radio heads and using an R&S CMQ200 shielding cube. The combination of these instruments creates a fully integrated OTA test solution for 5G FR2 devices. Click here to see everything RF’s coverage of the EuMW Event in Paris.last_img read more
