No InstallTaonga: The Island Farm Show Comments ▼ Public borrowing recorded its worst February since records began, and inflation surged more than expected to a 28-month high, official data showed.The news comes as Chancellor George Osborne puts the final touches to his 2011 Budget due on Wednesday, and is also likely to worry Bank of England policymakers trying to wrestle inflation back to its two per cent target.The Office for National Statistics said consumer price inflation rose to 4.4 per cent in February from 4.0 percent in January, significantly higher than the 4.2 per cent forecast by economists.Higher housing costs, domestic heating bills and clothing prices drove the increase in CPI, the ONS said.Retail price inflation, which is based on a longer-running index and is used as a starting point for many wage negotiations, rose to 5.5 per cent from 5.1 per cent, its highest since July 1991.The ONS said that public sector net borrowing totalled £10.280bn in February, up from 8.105 billion pounds for the same month in 2010 and well above economists’ median forecasts of 8.0 billion pounds.The government’s preferred measure, PSNB excluding financial sector interventions, rose to £11.771bn. Both measures were the highest for a month of February since records began in 1993.The figures mark a sharp turnaround from January, due to an unwinding of the exceptional receipts for self-assessed income tax received in that month.

  • Housing’s Great Recession Recovery: Strength in the West

SmartAsset’s findings revealed that the western part of the U.S. fared far better than other American regions following the Great Recession, with the top five metro areas posting the best recoveries all being located in Idaho, California, Washington, and Colorado.These Western states have all posted the lowest volumes of foreclosures and delinquencies, with Colorado still holding the lowest rate at 1.74%, down from November’s rate of 1.81% according to Black Knight’s First Look at December 2019 data.Among these top five Western regions, which included Boise, San Francisco, San Jose, Seattle, and Denver, each experienced a doubling of their HPIs since their lowest points during the recession. Alongside drops in HPI, the states with the fastest-growing HPIs have also seen their delinquency rates foreclosure-related activity drop.Home prices, meanwhile, fell 33% nationwide between the period of April 2006 and March 2011. The data reveals that even though home prices have indeed begun to rise since this low point, the uptick has not occurred at the same pace throughout the nation.On the opposite end of the spectrum, the five regions where the housing market fared the worst were located on the East Coast. This category was comprised of Hartford, New Haven, Bridgeport, Camden, and Albany. More alarming, four of these areas have not yet fully recovered from the recession. Adding to this somewhat gloomy news is the report that these four are not alone in the struggle to revive, as the study showed that almost 25% of the metro areas have also not yet fully recovered from the depression doldrums, with housing prices in 21 of the 100 largest metro areas having failed to reach pre-recession amounts.

Accordingly, the Court directed Uniyal to bring that plea on record and adjourned the matter to next week. Uniyal, a native of Tehri Garhwal in Uttarkhand, moved the Court after media reports showed up some disturbing figures that as many as 1451 incidents of forest fires were reported in Uttarakhand in 2019. He cited media reports according to which Uttarakhand had lost 44,000 hectares of forest covers to fire which is roughly equivalent to 61,000 football fields ever since year 2000 when it was conferred Statehood. The Petitioner has prayed to the court that the entire animal kingdom, including the avian and aquatic specie,s be declared a legal entity with corresponding rights and liabilities. He also sought probe into the land and timber mafias behind many of these forest fires. Invoking the doctrine of Parens Patriae, the Petitioner submitted that the Supreme Court had itself held in Animal Welfare Board of India vs. A. Nagaraja & others that Article 21 of the Constitution, while safeguarding the rights of humans, protects life and the word “life” has been given an expanded definition and any disturbance from the basic environment which includes all forms of life, including animals life, which are necessary for human life, fall within the meaning of Article 21 of the Constitution. “Life” means something more than mere survival or existence or instrumental value for human beings, but to lead a life with some intrinsic worth, honour or dignity. All the animals have honour and dignity. “Thus, in order to protect and promote greater welfare of animals including avian and aquatic, animals are required to be conferred with the status of legal entity/ legal person”, submits Uniyal. It may be noted here that the Uttarakhand High Court had in July, 2018 declared for the entire animal kingdom to be a legal entity with the rights of a living person.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

  • A WORK OF LOVE: Jones retiring after 35 years of joy as veterinarian

    first_img The late Albert Hastey was the first person to walk through the door of Jones Animal Clinic to welcome the young doctor.“During those first years, I made a lot of farm calls,” Jones said. “Large animals were a big part of my work load, so I was out of the office a lot. When I got to the office, I had a day’s work to do. I didn’t have any short days.”Jones loved his job so he never bolted.“I never even thought about it,” he said, with a smile. “Having Brenda work with me made all the difference. We love what we do and we have been very happy doing what we do and doing it together.”Brenda Jones understood the demands placed on a veterinarian. So when her husband worked from “can to can’t” six days a week and went into the office twice on Sundays, she was all right with that.Over the years, Jones’ “patients” and their owners became like family.“Working in a small town, you get to know everybody,” Jones said. “Knowing their pets is like knowing their kids and you get to know their kids, too.”The couple was there for the good times and the not-so-good times with their “families.”“The hardest part of being a veterinarian is having to put an animal down,” Jones said. “I’m often asked, ‘Is it time?’ and I’ll always tell the person, ‘You’ll know.’ When the time comes, I’ll try to assure them that letting go is the kindest thing they can do and they should do it with no guilt.”Brenda Jones said putting an animal down is a crying time. “And I cry with them and Jack does in his way. Experiences like that bring you especially close to your ‘families.’”Dr. Jack Jones knows about the difficulty of letting go, so, when he had the opportunity to sell his practice, he had a tough decision to make.“I knew I might not get that opportunity again,” Jones said. “I had been working 24-7 for 30 years. It was time.”But what made the time right was that Jones was asked to stay around during the transition.He agreed to stay on and work six days a week for five years.“The only difference in my work schedule was I got Sunday off,” he said with a smile. “That made my decision much easier.”Knowing he will probably be asked to fill in every now in then will make taking that first step into retirement easier.“Brenda and I are looking forward to having this time,” Jones said. “First, I’m going to Honduras. Then, we’ll get started on our bucket list and go until the finances run out.”At the top of the bucket list is a trip to Alaska and then travels out West.“I’ve lived pretty much in the same place where I was born so I want to see what all’s out there while I’m still able to,” Jones said. “We thank all of those who have supported us over the years. We have been blessed to serve such wonderful people and in such a wonderful community. We can’t say ‘thank you’ enough.” Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Published 3:00 am Sunday, June 17, 2018 Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Print Article You Might Like Email the author Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

On June 21, he will work the stockyards, as usual, and on June 22, he will leave for Honduras to volunteer his veterinary skills much as he has done on vacation for that past 13 years.Jones opened his veterinary practice in Brundidge in 1983. He has never looked back.“Nothing ever crossed my mind except being a veterinarian,” Jones said. “I’ve been blessed to do what I love. It is said if you were fortunate to find a job you love, you’d never have to work a day in your life. I’ve never ‘worked’ a day in my life.” Veterinary medicine is all that Dr. Jack Jones has ever wanted to do.Growing up in a small rural community, that was not an unusual thing. Kids grew up around farm animals and many had experiences with the daily care of the animals.Young Jones was involved in the care of his dad’s cows and also the other side of the cattle business. His dad owned and operated Jones Slaughter House in Ariton so he knew the cattle business, inside and out.

Faust and Tamplin in Ozark and received excellent on-the-job training,” Jones said. “I learned being a veterinarian was not a 9 to 5 job.”Jones also knew he wanted to have his own practice. So, in 1983, he took the plunge.“I wanted to go out on my own,” he said. “But Jimmy Carter was president and interest was at 20 percent. I was 31 years old with a wife and three kids. Going out on my own required a big investment with big payments to make. That was a huge responsibility and a big chance to take. But Brenda and I took the chance and things have worked out because Brundidge has been mighty good to us.” Book Nook to reopenlast_img read more

  • Las Vegas gunman, Stephen Paddock, captured on surveillance video days before mass shooting

    first_imgMGM Resorts(LAS VEGAS) — Surveillance footage from Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino shows how Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock spent his days at the hotel and casino before opening fire on a music festival and killing 58 people. In the videos, released today by MGM Resorts, Paddock, 64, of Mesquite, Nevada, can be seen gambling in the casino, walking around, buying snacks, eating in a restaurant and even chatting with the casino’s staff. Over a number of days after he checks into the hotel, he can also be seen coming and going at the hotel, bringing in luggage and bags. According to a preliminary investigative report released in January, Paddock checked into the Mandalay Bay hotel on Sept. 25, 2017.On Oct. 1, Paddock opened fire on the music festival crowd from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel, killing 58 people.A total of 851 people suffered injuries directly related to the shooting and its aftermath, and 422 of them specifically suffered from some kind of gunfire injury, Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said in January. “In the interest of providing greater context around Stephen Paddock’s actions in the days leading up to October 1, MGM Resorts has released these security videos and images,” MGM Resorts in a statement. “As the security footage demonstrates, Stephen Paddock gave no indication of what he planned to do and his interactions with staff and overall behavior were all normal.“MGM and Mandalay Bay could not reasonably foresee that a long-time guest with no known history of threats or violence and behaving in a manner that appeared outwardly normal, would carry out such an inexplicably evil, violent and deadly act,” the statement continued. “Our focus continues to be on supporting victims and their families, our guests and employees, and cooperating with law enforcement with their ongoing investigation.” Authorities found Paddock dead inside his hotel suite. The Clark County Coroner’s Office later ruled Paddock’s manner of death a suicide. No suicide note or manifesto was found stating Paddock’s intentions, according to the report.The only handwritten document found in either of Paddock’s connecting hotel rooms was a small note indicating measurements and distances related to the use of rifles. Although a motive remains unknown, the report says investigators have determined Paddock acted alone and was self-funded through his gambling and past real estate transactions.There was no evidence of radicalization or ideology, according to the report released in January.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

  • Coldest Thanksgiving in decades on the way for Northeast, Midwest

    first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — A major cold blast is moving into the Northeast just in time for Thanksgiving morning. Several daily record lows and record-low highs are expected to be broken with temperatures 20 to 35 degrees below normal.Wind chills on Thursday morning across the Northeast will be brutal -– in the teens from Washington, D.C., to Philadelphia, the single digits for New York City, and below zero for Boston and much of New England.Throughout the day on Thanksgiving don’t expect it to warm up much at all. Temperatures in Philadelphia, New York City and Boston will stay below the freezing mark — with the wind chill feeling more like the middle of winter than November.In fact, some of these temperatures are even colder than average temperatures in January.This will be the coldest Thanksgiving since 1996 across the Northeast, while some cities could get close to the coldest Thanksgiving on record.Boston’s forecast high is 21 degrees on Thursday, which means it will likely break the record for coldest Thanksgiving ever: 24 degrees set in 1901.New York City’s forecast high is 27 degrees, which may not break the record for coldest Thanksgiving, but will likely be in the top 3. Philadelphia’s forecast high is 30 degrees, and the record for coldest Thanksgiving is 27 degrees.Snow squalls are possible for western New York and Pennsylvania on Wednesday as an advancing cold front brings lake effect snow across the area. Winter weather advisories are in effect from Buffalo to Watertown.Only minor accumulations are expected, but any whiteout conditions and slick roads will result in hazardous travel.Much of the country is looking dry and quiet for one of the biggest travel days of the year on Wednesday.Sunshine and seasonable temperatures stretch from the Southwest all the way to the East Coast,There are no major storms to speak of, but there are a few trouble spots: rain along the West Coast, a few showers along the Gulf Coast and the lake effect snow in the Northeast.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

  • Governors Island redevelopment opposed as excessive

    first_imgFull Name* TagsCommercial Real EstateDevelopmentGovernors Island Share via Shortlink Contact Sasha Jones Message*center_img Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Email Address* Clare Newman with Governors Island (Credit: Governors Island, Getty Images)Opposition is cropping up to the proposed rezoning of Governors Island.The 172-acre island in New York Harbor has already been repurposed from a military base into a summertime recreational hub. Next up in redevelopment plans is to place a climate research center on the mostly green southern part of the island, according to the Wall Street Journal.The plan is part of a rezoning proposal that would allow for hotels, offices and other buildings.However, critics fear that plans for the research center are shaky and that new development would devastate green space, although the areas to be developed are currently fenced off and dotted with old military buildings, according to the trust that runs Governors Island. Manhattan Community Board 1 cast an advisory opinion last month against the rezoning after dozens of people called the scale of the proposed development too large.The entity that operates the island disagrees.“Having a bold vision like this is what we believe will unlock the potential of the island,” Clare Newman, president and chief executive of the Trust for Governors Island, told the newspaper.The idea is to make the island a self-supporting, year-round destination. Currently it is only open from May to October, and 75 percent of its $20 million budget comes from the city. The trust estimates the center would create 8,000 jobs.Rezonings are essentially decided by the local City Council member, which in the case of Governors Island is Margaret Chin. The island’s deed, which expires in 2060, prevents permanent housing and casinos, among other things.[WSJ] — Sasha JonesRead moreGoing green: Governors Island could soon house climate centerGovernors Island rezoning process is underwayLost summer, failed plan haunt Coney Islandlast_img read more
