Government policy clouds outlook for port volumes in 2013. Friday, March 29, 2013 Walter Kemmsies, chief economist of Moffatt Nichol, said Thursday he is forecasting import cargo volumes in the peak season this year could be 5 percent higher than in 2012, but cautioned the economic outlook is cloudy because of government policy uncertainty. One of several speakers at the Port of Long Beach’s annual Pulse of the Port Peak Season Forecast , Kemmsies indicated 2013 GDP growth forecasts range between 0.4 percent and 4.4 percent. As a result import container volumes could grow by as much as 12 percent or fall 6 percent. businesses and ports “need to be on your toes to support exports as well as imports.” Kemmsies said last year U.S. container volumes are still below the 2007 peak. He said it was still a very good resu...

... CONTACT: Stanford University News Service 650 723-2558. New policies place health-safety burden on supervisors. STANFORD -- Adoption of Stanford University's new, comprehensive health and safety policies sends a message to supervisory personnel, both faculty and staff -- "It's your job." According to Tom McBride, director of Environmental Health and Safety, the new policies reflect an ever stronger commitment to sound health and safety practices at Stanford. The new policies also make provisions to reward or discipline employees for compliance or non-compliance with health and safety practices. Faculty and staff supervisors don't necessarily need to be experts on all health and safety issues, McBride said. "What is required is that supervisors know what hazards are in their workplace, train their employees to work with these hazards, and assure that they comply with Stanford's health and safety policies," McBride said. "The new policies, improved training programs and the university's increased financial...

*  New Policy Would Establish Anthrax-Shot Exemptions
... European Stars and Stripes December 9, 1999 Pg. 3 New Policy Would Establish Anthrax-Shot Exemptions By Chuck Vinch, Washington bureau WASHINGTON —The Defense Department is getting close to unveiling a new policy that will exempt troops who are getting close to retirement and separation from having to begin taking the anthrax vaccine, officials said Wednesday. The mandatory vaccination program was launched more than 20 months ago, but there has never been a broad policy in place to indicate how to deal with troops who are closing in on the end of their service. Defense Department officials could not explain why such a policy was not built into the program from the start. Virginia Stefanokis, a spokeswoman for the Army surgeon general’s office that is overseeing the militarywide program, said a final decision on how far out the exemption will be set has not yet been made. But it will probably fall in line with other end-of-term policies, most of which put the cutoff at 180 days prior to retirement or sepa...

At the time it was drafted, one in four Americans was obese. 1 As the years went by, it became clear that this goal would not be met. On the contrary, obesity prevalence in 2010 had climb...

Multinational food, drink and alcohol companies are using strategies similar to those employed by the tobacco industry to undermine public health policies, health experts said Tuesday. In an international analysis of involvement by so-called "unhealthy commodity" companies in health policy-making, researchers from Australia, Britain, Brazil and elsewhere said self-regulation was failing and it was time the industry was regulated more stringently from outside. Writing in The Lancet medical journal, the researchers cited industry documents they said revealed how companies seek to shape health legislation and avoid regulation. They cited analysis of published research which found systematic bias from industry funding: articles sponsored exclusively by food and drinks companies were between four and eight times more likely to have conclusions that ...

Posted at January 9, 2014 By : rsswp Categories : Announcements, Call for Papers Comment: 0 Comment. . Confirmation that Chalara fraxinea ash dieback had been introduced into the UK in 2012 triggered an unprecedented level of media coverage and public debate about the threat to trees, woodland and rural landscapes from a new generation of invasive tree pests and pathogens. The government response has been an object lesson in stakeholder and public engagement, with extensive consultation on the best way to manage the risks from this and other likely disease threats and a determined effort to involve publics in disease monitoring and surveillance through ‘citizen science’ initiatives of various sorts. This apparent commitment to bringing stakeholders and publics into a more co-produced and participatory policy response, however, sits uneasily alongside what some critics see as a reluctance ...

People's health is at risk because of the way British food is being produced and marketed, according to a report from a top team of academics.

Acidification Research: Evaluation and Policy Applications Edited By T. Schneider, Rijksinstituut voor Volksgezondheid en Milieuhygiene RIVM, 3720 BA Bilthoven, The Netherlands A large number of nationwide research programmes in the field of acidification have been carried out in the last decade. Especially in Western Europe, extensive programmes have resulted in a good overview of all the effects - mostly negative - caused by acidifying substances. There is now consensus that types of acidification damage relate to the unique geography of an area: air pollution affects vegetation; acid aerosol the ozone layer. New in this volume, is the relation between scientific results of integrated research programmes and policy actions to prevent, reduce and limit the widespread damage caused by acidification. The results of many different n...

*  The Genesis of Industrial Policy | Foundation for Economic Education
Contemporary proponents of industrial policy advocate many of the same economic policies that prevailed in Italy and Germany in the 1920s and ‘30s. In a statement that could have been written by one of the contemporary American proponents of industrial policy, the German newspaper Deutsche Volkswirt explained in 1933 that the purpose of these institutions was to “give private industry possibilities and tasks for far-reaching collaboration.” According to the Nazi National Economic Minister, “Our task is the limited one of coordinating with the present idea of national government the organization of the enormous field of German business administration.” As in the industrial policy literature, the words “cooperation” and “collaboration” were used repeatedly by German and Italian Fascists. The essence of early 20th-century German and Italian industrial policy and of contemporary industrial policy proposals was for government, business, and unions to attempt to “collaborate to coordinate” the economy in the public...

*  .. A Fresh Approach to Drugs – the UK Drug Policy Commission Report ..
A Fresh Approach to Drugs – the UK Drug Policy Commission Report. 15/10/2012. in Cannabis, Global Policy News, Policy, Research. The Beckley Foundation welcomes the report of the UK Drug Policy Commission published this week, a culmination of 6 years of in-depth analysis into all aspects of UK drug policy. The Commission, comprised of a distinguished multi-disciplinary panel of experts, has reached many of the same conclusions as those emerging from the work of the Beckley Foundation: that the 50 years of ‘War on Drugs’ has failed, that politicians need to accept that many individuals enjoy taking drugs, and that drug laws should be evidence-based and aimed at reducing harms. Included among their many recommendations for UK drug policy is decriminalisation of possession, with cannabis as a first step. The Beckley Foundation agrees, and might perhaps recommend that there is a further option which may yield a greater reduction of harm, namely adopting a regulated market for cannabis. With a decriminalised appr...

There is general confusion about what a correct PV string should look like. This page attempts to define a standard for packages in OpenEmbedded to follow. Whilst not mandatory, it is strongly recommended. OE's versioning policy aims to follow that from Debian and is hence compatible with ipkg. One key phrase to note is "The lexical comparison is a comparison of ASCII values modified so that all the letters sort earlier than all the non-letters."

Abstract This document provides a set of proposed policies for the management of IPv6 address space, specifically concerning the allocation of address space allocated by Regional Internet Registries RIRs to organisations operating IPv6 networks. 3 Address Space Requirement for Initial Allocation It is proposed to recognise existing network infrastructure and address utilisation both IPv4 and IPv6. Case 3 - No existing IPv4 or IPv6 services Where IPv6 address space is required by an organisation which has no existing infrastructure, the address requirement will be assessed according to network architecture plans and other documentation provided to the RIR within the request process. 4 Size of Initial Allocation The amount of addresses allocated to an existing network, will be determined based on the existing infrastructure and address utilisation of that network. For new networks without existing infrastructure, it is proposed to establish a minimum allocation for IPv6 address space....

The Health bill : lack of coverage is a bad prognosis in Medicine in the media, NHS, Politics of healthcare. Health and Social Care Bill has apparently been carried. The government won with a majority of 65. Look at the ‘debate’ here – a sedate affair, with plenty of jolly laughing, a bit of sexism, and an aside about the wonders of complementary medicine thrown in. A sixth year debating society would have done better. Meantime, the Department of Health have provided a wishy washy and faint response to the 38 degrees criticism of the health bill, and Martin Beckford in the DT is pointing out that fixed beliefs held by ministers that private markets will be better for the NHS continue, despite droves of evidence to the contrary. Even more worrying is the Prime Ministers’ assertion that health professionals are for his reform s, despite the fact that representative bodies have rejected the bill, and the consistent voices of many thousands of doctors and nurses protesting against it.

This is not to suggest that obesity and other concerns that arise in market economies are never problems, but when they are, they are the problems of increasing prosperity that inevitably result from overcoming the far worse problems of poverty. The success of market incentives and freedom in effectively eliminating the threat of starvation has, in the minds of the public, been converted into a failure that is being used to justify further undermining the power of markets and freedom to continue replacing the problems of poverty with the problems of prosperity. Medical Care. The constant refrain is that the high cost of medical care is a failure of markets, which has become a serious problem—­indeed, another national crisis—demanding a government remedy. In fact, the cost of medical care is ­greatly overstated. People are confusing the increasing amount being spent on medical care with the costs of that care when claiming that medical costs are higher today than ever.

Covered California keeps its deadline. In a unanimous vote, the board that governs Covered California decided to keep the December 31 deadline that would force health insurers in the state to end existing health insurance plans that fail to meet ACA requirements for essential benefits. The board claimed that there was no benefit in extending that deadline that could affect over 1 million people in California, saying it could cause confusion about accessing affordable health care. The protection of consumers from poor health plans was also cited as reason for the decision. This comes after the Obama administration's plea to health providers nationwide that certain policies be extended for certain individuals whose policy cancel...
