first_imgSouth-west firm Burges Salmon will not face the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal following allegations that it gave inappropriate legal advice to farmers, a long-running investigation by the Solicitors Regulation Authority has decided. The SRA, which for two years considered allegations about advice given by Burges Salmon to farmers on agricultural mortgages and breach of conflict rules, said today that there was ‘no viable prospect’ of successful disciplinary proceedings against the firm. The SRA said that it has closed the investigation, which it began in September 2008, and that there will be no further action. SRA chief executive Antony Townsend said: ‘This has been an exceptionally complex investigation, raising unusual issues. We appreciate that the former clients will be very disappointed, but we have reached our conclusion after exhaustive consideration of the issues, and having taken expert external legal advice. The conclusion was that there was no viable prospect of successful disciplinary proceedings. ‘We regret that the investigation took as long as it did. There was a very large quantity of documents to review. We have reviewed its handling and identified aspects where there was scope for speedier progress. We are applying these lessons in the management of future complex investigations.’ Burges Salmon said today in a statement: ‘We have co-operated fully with the SRA throughout this long-running investigation, which we are pleased has been closed by the SRA without any findings of breach of the professional conduct rules by Burges Salmon or any of the firm’s solicitors. ‘We are pleased that the SRA has confirmed in relation to the allegations of conflict of interest and failure to act in clients’ best interests, that it could not conclude that we should have acted differently, or that we failed to act in the best interests of our agricultural/farming clients. We remain committed to maintaining the highest standards of professional conduct.’last_img read more

first_imgUAVs were used in last year’s Funny River Fire to find hot spots at night. CEO John Parker of Integrated Robotics said the parent company of the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles that he uses has shown increased interest in Alaska’s drone market. Parker: “ECA Robotics, they’re the oldest robotics company in the world they were formed in 1936 and they have worldwide coverage in over 300 robotics products, of which the IT180 is one. And ECA recognizes the value of doing the manufacturing in the U.S. for the U.S. market, they’re just gaining traction in the U.S. market.” FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Drone manufacturing in Kenai is moving towards a reality. Parker: “And it was flown at night and the infrared camera can see through the smoke and it can find hot spots and they plotted those. It uses GPS coordinations as well, so they find a hot spot, they coordinate it, that data is transmitted back to the ground station and then it was plotted on a map and given to the Incident Commander. Every morning they had a meeting at 7 o’clock prior to going out and resuming fire suppression, so they had this data each night for where these hot spots where, so they could marshal their resources and move them quicker and more effectively into the fire, and it’s why we didn’t have a real problem with this fire, and it was a huge fire.” Parker added that since a video of amazon dropping a package on someone’s front porch went viral it’s been difficult changing perceptions of drones from that of “invasive and spies” to “helpful”. Currently the IT180 is manufactured in France and he said some testing and evaluation of manufacturing locally will be done within the next month.last_img read more

The Berbician had also forged a third-wicket partnership of 49 with Mandy Mangru before she was bowled by Melicia Clarke.Mangru batted with patience, soaking up 135 balls in her innings of 35 that saw her being dropped on 29.

Grimmond pounded six fours including two consecutively through mid-wicket off of Tynetta McKay before being dismissed on 37.Willett finished with 3-30 including the wickets of Melanie Henry (02) and Kaysia Schultz (05) while Clarke finished with 2-22 as their sloppy bowling facilitated 44 extras.Mangru returned with the ball to snatch 4-22 with her off-spin while her opening partner and fellow spinner, Grimmond bagged 2-25. Akaze Thompson supported with 2-26 as only Malissa Howard (21) and Amanda Edwards (20) looked comfortable at the crease to extend their win-less run.last_img read more
