Indiana Requiring New Record Keeping for all Poultry Owners

first_img Facebook Twitter Information about Indiana’s poultry entry and record keeping requirements is available on BOAH’s website at: www.in.gov/boah/2721.htm. Poultry owners are encouraged to monitor their birds for any signs of unusual illness or death. Report sick or dead poultry by calling the Healthy Birds Hotline: 866-536-7593. This toll-free hotline will connect poultry owners with a state or federal veterinarian who can determine if an illness needs more follow-up. By Gary Truitt – Jan 27, 2016 Derrer says, in addition to record keeping, they are urging all poultry owners to step up biosecurity efforts, “We are always banging the drum for biosecurity and especially now with this disease in Indiana.” She added that biosecurity is important, not just for commercial poultry operations but for backyard flocks as well. Previous articleWorkshop to Address Managing Risk on the FarmNext articleIndiana Soybean Officers Begin 2016 Work Gary Truitt Indiana Requiring New Record Keeping for all Poultry Owners Indiana Requiring New Record Keeping for all Poultry OwnersDr. MarshWhile there are no new developments in the avian flu outbreak in SW Indiana, the Indiana Board of Animal Health is strictly enforcing a new record keeping system required for all poultry owners.  After the avian flu scare of 2015, the BOAH adopted a new record keeping system for both private and commercial owners of poultry.  Spokesman Denise Derrer said, following the 2016 disease outbreak,  this new law is being strictly enforced, “Under the new law, all sellers and buyers of poultry in Indiana must maintain records of flock additions and removals for 3 years.” Records must include: names and addresses of buyer and seller, sale date, breed, sex, number of animals, and reason for movement. This state requirement applies to all retail, swap meet, flea market, auction, and private sales, including barters or trades.center_img The finding of highly pathogenic avian influenza in Southern Indiana reinforces the need for the new record keeping rule,” said Indiana State Veterinarian Bret Marsh, DVM. “In a disease event of this magnitude, the Board of Animal Health needs the ability to trace bird movements to ensure the disease has not spread. That is why we added poultry to Indiana’s Animal Disease Traceability (ADT) rule.”For those who purchase birds from out-of-state sources, BOAH reminds buyers that all poultry entering Indiana must have either a certificate of veterinary inspection (CVI) or a National Poultry Improvement Plan (NPIP) form VS 9-3. If chicks are purchased from an NPIP-certified hatchery, then the chicks can enter Indiana with a copy of the NPIP form VS 9-3.

Moot Court team to hold tryouts next month

first_img Website| + posts Zoe Zabelhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/zoe-zabel/ Five Fort Worth restaurants for graduation day printFuture law students and lovers of the Constitution can try out for a chance to compete on TCU’s Moot Court team.The Moot Court program, offered to undergraduates by the political science department, allows students to argue a hypothetical case before a mock Supreme Court of the United States.“We have five returning members and are looking for four to six people to join our team,” said Donald Jackson, one of the political science professors who advises the team.Students of the team gain the skills needed to defend a case to a Supreme Court. They conduct their own legal research and have multiple practice sessions in intercollegiate competitions.“The team is very competitive,” said Kelsey Ritchie, journalism and political science double major who has competed on the team for two years. “Last year, my partner Maddie Reddick and I went to nationals in California. At the regional tournament, I came in the top 16 and Maddie came in fourth.”The team competes in the Texas Undergraduate Moot Court Association (TUMCA) where the most recent regional competitions have been held at Texas Tech Law School and Texas A&M Law School in Fort Worth.Students compete in pairs, and each student is responsible for presenting a 10-minute argument that they have heavily researched throughout the entire year.“Every year, [TUMCA] publishes a new case problem,” Jackson said. “It’s a constitutional law problem with two issues, and we argue that same case at every competition.”Moot Court team members are told what side of the argument they will be taking minutes before competing, which makes the trial much more difficult to prepare for, Jackson said.“A Moot Court argument is an appellate argument that is arguing a case as though it was before the Supreme Court of the United States,” Jackson said. “So it’s different from what is called mock trial because mock trial is a trial before a jury.”The team also made it to nationals in 2013.Prospective new members can email Jackson to request a 15-minute interview for March 14 or 18 in Scharbauer 1001, the Debate Chamber.Students interviewing for the team are asked to prepare a presentation for either side of the issues from the Elonis v. US, 135 S Ct. 2001 – Supreme Court 2015 case.

Chicago police release bodycam footage of fatal shooting

first_imgABC News(CHICAGO) — Chicago police released video of a fatal shooting on Sunday, one day after a local man’s death ignited protests in the city, clashes with cops and resulted in the officer being placed on desk duty.The protests Saturday led to multiple officers being injured, police said. Marchers were out again on Sunday, though no arrests were reported.Chicago Police Chief Fred Waller said a group of officers patrolling the city’s South Shore neighborhood at about 5:30 p.m. Saturday saw a person they believed to be armed and confronted him.A struggle followed and the man was fatally shot. None of the officers were injured.“Some officers working a foot post, walking along 71st Street, saw a subject they thought might have been armed from the bulge around his waistband,” Waller said at a press conference Saturday night. “After that, they approached the subject, who became combative and as he became combative, flailing away, he broke free from the officers and they thought he appeared to be reaching for a weapon — which he did have a weapon on him — and officers tragically shot this man.”Police released bodycam footage of the shooting on Sunday in a bid to explain the officers’ actions.“We’re not trying to hide anything, we’re not trying to fluff anything. The video speaks for itself,” said Chicago Police Department Superintendent Eddie Johnson, who said he consulted with Augustus’ family before releasing the footage.Waller called the shooting a “tragic incident” on Saturday night. Police said only one officer opened fire, striking the man.The man was pronounced dead at Jackson Park Hospital, according to officials. Police identified the victim as 37-year-old Harith Augustus, who lived in the neighborhood.The police recovered a semiautomatic-type weapon and magazines from the suspect.The suspect did not fire his weapon, Waller said.Augustus was a well-known figure in the neighborhood, working as a barber at a shop just a few blocks from the shooting, Chicago ABC station WLS reported.In the immediate aftermath of the fatal shooting, protests began in the area. WLS captured video of protesters pushing and shoving back and forth with police officers.Waller said three or four officers suffered minor injuries in the protests when demonstrators threw rocks and glass bottles at them. Waller said a few protesters were arrested, but did not have a specific number. Anthony Guglielmi, chief communications officer for the Chicago Police Department, later tweeted four protesters were arrested.The Civilian Office of Police Accountability said in a statement to WLS that there would be a “thorough, objective and unbiased investigation and requests the public’s patience and cooperation.”Just hours after the shooting, the Chicago Police Department released a preliminary statement about the shooting saying the officer who fired the shots would be “placed on routine administrative duties for a period of 30 days.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

first_imgThis week’s guruMasseurs line up to feel the forceThe way to stave off absenteeism is not by threats or back-to-workinterviews, but by massage. In an enlightened move, West Yorkshire police chiefs are treating controlroom staff to short bursts of acupressure – an Asian massage where the body’snatural self-healing abilities are stimulated through pressure applied tospecific points on the body. The 20-minute treatments have proved so popular that the force has beenforced to put the service out to tender to comply with European rules. It is hoped that an extension of the three-month trial will save the police£100,000 through missed workdays. Through a positively untrustworthy source, Guru has learned that a fiercebidding war has begun between ‘Hot Tropic Massage and Sauna’ from Bradford, andWakefield’s own ‘Taste of Heaven plc’. The deal is presently deadlocked afterboth businesses offered ‘a completely satisfying experience’. Guru refuses to get sucked into smutty truncheon jokes. Insert your ownhere. Cyber babe faces up to naked reality Despite increased job security and ever-tighter rules on dismissal, it seemsno-one is safe. Connie, the advertising face (and body) of AOL, has beeninformed she is ‘inappropriate’ for today’s more experienced web users and sheis to be stripped of her e-dress. This was an event Guru would dearly loved to have attended, but sadly itwent on behind closed monitors. Ever the gentleman, Guru is offering Connie his own e-male services at thisvulnerable time. However, this cyber skul-duggery is nothing compared to the German civilservant who dismissed his own mother. The 32-year-old Berlin Senate employee sent his mother a solicitor’s letterto say he no longer wants anything to do with her: “I am writing torequest that you refrain from making any contact with my client either bytelephone or through a third party, for example my client’s employer, partneror work colleagues.” Apparently this anti-Oedipus is embarrassed that his mother is a cleaner. Roll up, roll up: the euro finds use at last Almost all euro bank notes have traces of cocaine on them, according toresearch at the Institute for Biomedical and Pharmaceutical Research inNuremberg. Seven months after the euro’s launch, scientists found that 90 per cent ofnotes were contaminated with an average of 0.4 micrograms of cocaine. In a moment of clarity and elation while on a trip to the Continent, Gururealised this revelation could tip the balance on the UK’s euro entry. Surely the Government can no longer turn up their noses at Europe – thisresearch proves the euro is nothing to be sniffed at. It must now be high onthe Government agenda. MPs will soon be lining up to make sure they cut it whenthe matter is put on the table. Charisma classes What do Mussolini, Richard Branson, Che Guevara and Alex Ferguson have incommon? The answer is charisma – the holy grail of leadership qualities. Guru always thought charisma was something you were born with, but businesspsychologist Garth Spiers claims you can actually teach people the necessaryskills. Spiers, who runs a charisma course for senior managers, explained: “Agood team needs a leader with a high ‘CQ’ (charisma quotient). They will beflexible, aware and expressive in ways that will inspire their teams togreatness.” Guru decided to enrol on the course, which includes elements on editorialintelligence, experimental theatre and neuro-linguistic programming and foundit challenging to say the least. At one stage Guru found himself attempting to mime the first sproutings of aspring daffodil, while simultaneously completing a sophisticated set ofpsychometrics. It is difficult to gauge whether Guru’s CQ has been boosted, but theaudience at one of his recent keynote conference lectures on inspiration seemedto nod off halfway through (although it was hot and delegates had just had alarge liquid lunch).

Subglacial sediment pathways and deglacial chronology of the northern Barents Sea Ice Sheet

first_imgNew information is presented on the configuration of the northern Barents Sea Ice Sheet (BSIS) during the last glacial and deglaciation (21–11.5 ka). The glacial dynamics of the BSIS that we discuss are based on clay-mineral compositions of subglacial tills and a distinct kaolinite source in the central Barents Sea where previous workers have placed a large, single ice dome for the last glacial BSIS. Our results, which appear to show that subglacial sediments were sourced locally, suggest that the BSIS consisted at least temporarily of multiple domes and may have been more dynamic than previously thought. New radiocarbon dates are presented along with new ice-extent reconstructions for 16.5–15, 14, 13.5 and 11.5 ka. Our reconstructions add information to previous regional and continental-scale efforts in areas east of Svalbard. Ice retreat in the northern Barents Sea progressed as follows. (i) 19–16.5 ka. Major calving led to dynamic thinning in shelf troughs and was accompanied by significant ice-sheet thinning inland as a result of ice drawdown. (ii) 16.5–15 ka. Rapid ice-margin retreat of between 75–100 km occurred, via lift-off and iceberg calving, in Hinlopen and Kvitøya troughs, as well as major retreat (>300 km) in Franz Victoria Trough (FVT) further east. (iii) 15–13.5 ka. Retreat progressed westwards from the FVT towards Svalbard with troughs east of Svalbard (Kvitøya, Olga, and Erik Eriksen) mostly ice-free by 13.5 ka. (iv) 13.5–11.5 ka. Ice retreated gradually towards residual ice masses on Svalbard, Kong Karls Land and possibly Storbanken. Our data require a modification of earlier views of the BSIS because they point toward a more dynamic ice sheet and decay that, once initiated at the shelf break, was dominated by the withdrawal of ice from the FVT that progressed westwards towards the Svalbard archipelago.last_img read more
