Category: tcjvdnsenlvygakm Assisted by UN agency displaced Kenyans assess conditions for returning home

6 May 2008Some of the Kenyans displaced in the post-electoral violence that erupted in the East African country several months ago today embarked on a visit, with the help of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), to assess the situation in their home villages and the possibilities for return. The “go-and-see” visit for representatives of internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Nakuru, organized by UNHCR, comes a day after the Government launched a resettlement programme – known as “Operation Rudi Nyumbani” (Operation Return Home) – for those displaced in the violence, sparked by contested presidential elections in late December. The crisis resulted in the displacement of an estimated 350,000 people – 90 per cent of them in the Rift Valley – and the deaths of some 1,200 people. During their daylong visit to their villages in Uasin Gishu and Koibatek districts in the Rift Valley, the IDPs will assess the security situation, infrastructure and livelihood possibilities. “They are expected on return to share their impressions about the visit with other IDPs,” UNHCR spokesperson Jennifer Pagonis told journalists in Geneva today. “It’s all part of our efforts to provide the IDPs with objective information about conditions in their villages so they can make an informed decision about return.” The IDPs will meet local authorities and representatives of other communities in the area as part of the reconciliation process, as well as inspect their homes. Ms. Pagonis noted that in many cases, houses have been burned to the ground while others have been vandalised, and roofing material have been stolen. In many locations in the Rift Valley, people have started to move back closer to their villages. Many displaced farmers have shown an interest in returning, especially with the onset of the planting season, but only if their safety can be ensured. UNHCR plans to organize more “go-and-see” visits to help IDPs decide about their return. Meanwhile, in Uganda, UNHCR has begun the transfer of some 1,800 Kenyan refugees from a transit site near the Kenya-Uganda border to Kiryandongo – a long-established Ugandan refugee settlement. The first set of 460 refugees arrived in Kiryandongo last evening. On Friday the agency is planning to repatriate another 200 Kenyan refugees who wish to return to their homes, mainly in the districts neighbouring Uganda. read more

Category: tcjvdnsenlvygakm WestJet expects strong 2013 on internal changes passenger demand

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email WestJet expects strong 2013 on internal changes, passenger demand WestJet Airlines says it’s poised for another strong year in 2013 as it launches a new regional service, introduces new fare options designed to lure business travellers and seeks to cut $100 million in costs to reinforce its cost advantage over Air Canada.On Monday, the Calgary-based airline will disclose whether its regional carrier, WestJet Encore, will initially serve the East or the West after it receives its first two Bombardier Q400s in June, the first time the company has used turboprops.Over time, WestJet plans to grow the Encore fleet to serve more of the country and will fund the aircraft purchase with the assistance of $820 million in funding from Export Development Canada.Next week’s announcement, expected to reveal whether Encore will be based in Calgary or Toronto, follows a 2012 profit of $242.4 million for the airline, up 63 per cent from the previous year.“What a great year,” president and CEO Gregg Saretsky said Wednesday during a conference call with analysts.The year ended on a high note with $60.9 million or 46 per diluted share of net income in the fourth quarter ended Dec. 31, the best quarter in the company’s history excluding one-time gains in 2007 from lower federal taxes. The results were up more than 70 per cent from net earnings of $35.6 million or 26 cents per share a year earlier.Revenue rose to $860.6 million from $781.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2011.WestJet’s (TSX:WJA) 2012 full-year profit amounted to $1.78 per share with almost $3.43 billion in revenue.The addition of Encore and a new fare structure that will be accompanied by a reconfiguration of its Boeing 737s to include “premium economy” seating are meant to further attract corporate and well-heeled travellers. The company said revenue from corporate customers grew by more than 20 per cent last year.The new fare structure and premium seat offering are expected to add $50 million to $80 million in annual revenues, which analysts expect will drive a 25 to 40 cents per share boost to its bottom line.“This will enable us to go to another level yet,” added Bob Cummings, executive vice-president, sales, marketing and guest experience.The airline announced that it plans to renew its share buyback program and will raise its quarterly dividend by 25 per cent. The payout will increase 10 cents from eight cents effective March 28 to shareholders of record on March 13.It also unveiled a plan to cut $100 million of costs over 36 months to regain some of the cost advantage lost to Air Canada (TSX:AC.B) when its rival trimmed $530 million of costs.“Even with Air Canada’s transformation, we believe our costs are still somewhere between 10 and 15 per cent lower than Air Canada’s,” said Saretsky. “This business transform is meant to create even a wider gap again.”WestJet will also examine other ways to cut costs, including reducing the number of back office employees without resorting to layoffs, IT changes and using higher capacity aircraft on some routes.WestJet was expected to earn 41 cents per share on $856 million of revenues in the quarter, and $1.72 per share on $3.42 billion of revenues for the year, according to analysts polled by Thomson Reuters.The airline flew 17.4 million passengers last year, up 8.6 per cent from 2011, including 4.3 million in the fourth quarter.Saretsky said the decision to repurchase up to five per cent of WestJet’s outstanding shares and raise its dividend signals its confidence in the business and commitment to return value to shareholders.The airline expects moderate revenue per seat mile growth in the first quarter on top of a six per cent increase last year. System capacity is expected to increase 7.5 to 8.5 per cent for the year. Domestic capacity will increase five to six per cent, after declining 0.9 per cent in 2012.And the company foresees no deceleration in demand from customers.“We’re not seeing any guest resistance to higher fares which is coming both through the mix and higher ticket prices,” Saretsky said.WestJet ended the year with $1.4 billion in cash or 41 per cent of trailing twelve month revenue.Analysts described WestJet’s results as positive and further demonstrating the likelihood of strong results to come in 2013.“We forecast 21 per cent earnings growth in 2013 driven by continued strong demand for air travel, the introduction of bundled fares and premium economy… and the start-up of WestJet’s regional operation,” wrote Cameron Doerksen of National Bank Financial.On the Toronto Stock Exchange, WestJet’s shares lost 17 cents at $22.38 in afternoon trading. by Ross Marowits, The Canadian Press Posted Feb 6, 2013 4:16 pm MDT read more

OSU competes in a match against Florida Gulf Coast on Sept. 5 at St. John Arena. OSU won, 3-1. Credit: Emily Yarcusko / For the LanternThe Ohio State women’s volleyball team had it’s toughest game of the season against No. 17 Minnesota, and was unable to hang on in five sets.The Buckeyes won the first set before losing the next two and the final frame (25-21, 23-25, 20-25, 29-27, 12-15).In the first set, the Golden Gophers got off to a 5-2 lead, but a 11-4 run by the Buckeyes helped OSU to take the first set.In the second set, the Gophers had all the momentum from the beginning, as they took a 7-3 lead, but the Buckeyes would rally back multiple times in the beginning of the match, before the Gophers took control after a 12-12 tie.After intermission, the Buckeyes came out and fell victim to a Gopher 6-0 run, however the Buckeyes would come back. While they had chances to tie, they could never overcome the one-point deficit and the Gophers eventually took a 2-1 lead.The Buckeyes found a way to win the crucial fourth set, as they survived four match points to avoid defeat and tie the match up at two apiece.The final kill of the fourth set came from sophomore outside hitter Kylie Randall, where she was able to give the Buckeyes the only two-point lead of the set that mattered.After coming off a set in which neither team led by more than two, the Gophers and Buckeyes continued to fight out for the final game. The Gophers would gain their largest lead of the game with their final point, winning their third and clinching set 15-12.Three Buckeye seniors led both teams in multiple categories. Senior setter Taylor Sherwin led all players in assists with 58 and was tied for the lead in service aces with two. She also added six digs.

Category: tcjvdnsenlvygakm Several scenarios projected as to when the oil slump might end

first_imgAs oil traders have learned time and again, picking a bottom in today’s glutted global market can be a fool’s game: just when prices start to rebound, as they have three times this year, a wave of renewed bearishness smacks them back down.With oil resuming its southward march due to yet more oversupply, closing in on $35 a barrel after trading at $100 in June 2014, any number of factors could indicate when the rout may finally be over — for real this time.PUMP THAT SHALE OR NOTThe United States is still pumping near-record volumes of crude, while OPEC is keeping output near all-time highs to maintain market share. But the strain is starting to show. US oil production has fallen by about 200,000 barrels per day since an over four-decade high in April, a decline that’s been far shallower than many expected. Non-OPEC annual supply growth shrank to below 300,000 bpd in November from 2.2 million at the start of the year, according to the International Energy Agency. New data showing a deeper or more definitive decline in output could give bulls a reason to pile back in.WELL, WELL, WELL: YOU DON’T SPEND, YOU DON’T GETIf any one thing points to the dangers of a supply shortfall in the future, it’s a lack of investment. As ex-BP chief Tony Hayward told a conference in New York this year, if the money doesn’t go into the ground, the oil won’t come out. Non-OPEC investment has been cut by around $130 billion this year from about $650 billion in 2014, OPEC Secretary General Abdullah al-Badri said in October. In the United States, the oil rig count just keeps falling. Last week it dropped for the 14th of the last 15 weeks, to 524, a third of what it was a year ago. A Barclays survey found that North American oil firms could cut investment by up to $19 billion next year after slashing it by $68 billion this year.SAUDIS BLINK?Led — or dragged — by Saudi Arabia, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries this month came to a non-agreement that essentially keeps output unchanged. The group’s refusal to cut production — or even simply set a ceiling — has sent prices into another tailspin, but that could change at any time. Riyadh is feeling the strain, albeit less so than poorer OPEC members like Venezuela and Iran. Saudi officials have already floated ideas such as a value added tax and cutting energy subsidies. The Kingdom has resolutely refused to back down on its policy of pumping flat out, but any indication of a softening resolve could mark a true turning point.WAR-WAR, NOT JAW-JAWThese days, the specter of a wider supply-disruptive war is never far off, and when it hits oil-producing regions, skittish traders look to buy. With Iraq and Syria in disarray, Saudi bombing Yemen, and Russia still embroiled in conflict with Ukraine, there is plenty to watch. Compounding the risk, the amount of available spare OPEC oil capacity that could compensate for any sudden shortage has shrunk to just around 1.25 million bpd, the least since 2008, according to the EIA.WAITING FOR IRANOne major factor weighing on oil markets is the expected reemergence of Iran as an exporter next year after sanctions are lifted. Tehran has said it is gearing up to pump an extra 500,000 bpd of crude as soon as mid-year as sanctions are eased within months. If those exports do not materialize or are delayed, bulls may be emboldened to charge in.ZOMBIES SWARMUS oil companies are feeling the strain and many, known as “zombies”, have stopped pumping as they wait out the downturn, saving cash and paying off what debt they can. If oil prices remain low, credit lines may be cut, sending companies under and cutting output capacity. The decision by most banks not to cut credit to producers this fall was bearish but if that leniency does not continue it will have the opposite effect.GET IN THE CARWhen crude drops, so do gasoline and diesel prices, and consumers worldwide are driving more. If that continues, it will be a supportive factor. British supermarket chains Asda and Morrisons have cut the price of petrol to below the 1 pound ($1.50) per liter mark, and others are expected to follow. China’s car sales jumped 20% in November from a year earlier, putting the world’s biggest automobile market on track for annual sales growth of 5 to 7%. And consumers are also showing less interest in more fuel-efficient cars — US vehicle fleet efficiency was flat in 2014 and will barely rise this year, US data show.BALANCE WILL RETURN, GRASSHOPPERFor all the talk of oversupply, it may not be as big as many think. Global markets are only oversupplied by about 1 million bpd, according to a report from Citi analysts on Tuesday, and a bridging of the gap is already under way. With incomplete and often lagging data, any sudden sign that the supply excess is diminishing more quickly than expected could ignite buying.CHARTS DON’T LIE, DO THEY?Traders are mulling price charts which point to the possibility of a further drop in crude. But if supportive levels are not breached there could be a rebound. Technical analysts say if downward momentum runs out at the key support level of $35, prices will likely rebound. Some are looking back to the December 2008 lows as key supports; if US crude avoids sinking below $32.40 a barrel, the bottom could be in. It was trading about $3 a barrel above that on Wednesday.last_img read more

Category: tcjvdnsenlvygakm First Step Act is a Good Start

first_imgBy George Kevin Jordan, AFRO Staff WriterIn 2019 organizations that supported the recently passed First Step Act, which helps reform the prison system, are calling for proper implementation and transparency, officials said.“I think the take away from folks supporting and opposing this bill is that it’s well titled  – in that it’s the first step,” said Ryan King, director of Research and Policy at the Justice Policy Institute. “I think it’s been a continuous piece of legislation even within the community of people working in criminal justice reform.”On Dec. 18 after a rare bipartisan push from senators across the aisle the First Step Act was passed.(Illustration courtesy of“Tonight the Senate took an important first step to reform our broken criminal justice system. The First Step Act is backed by a diverse group of supporters – from the American Civil Liberties Union to the Fraternal Order of Police,” said U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen (D-Md),  in a statement. “ It includes crucial reforms to reduce mandatory minimum sentences for non-violent crimes, end juvenile solitary confinement, and provide more people with a second chance. While we’ve got much more to do, I was proud to support this bipartisan bill, and I will continue working to implement more reforms in the days ahead.”The bill  – co sponsored by Van Hollen, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D- RI) and Sen. John Cornyn (R – TX), would do several things including:Hike earned credit up to 54 days per year per inmate rather than the current standard of 47 days that the Bureau of Prisons has in place.Provide over $250 million in educational classes and training to assist with transition for returning citizens.Ban the shackling of female inmates when they are pregnant and up to three months after their pregnancyInstitute home confinement for low risk prisonersProvide proper ID to individuals released from prison.While there has been debate about how substantive the bill is to the entire prison population and system, King pointed out the real time benefits can be had from the legislation.“These are positive reforms where thousands of people will be impacted by them,” King said. “There are a number of people who have the opportunity to be released immediately. There is no question that that’s a positive.”According to the Federal Bureau of Prisons there are about 180,000 federal inmates in the system now. This number is compared to more than 2.3 million people in the entire prison system in the U.S., according to numbers by the Prison Policy Initiative.King noted that legislation tends to help push more legislation in the long run.“You will see these smaller reforms have led to more ambitious reform,” King said. “People who were reluctant later become supporters.”Some critics are wary of the Risk Assessment part of the bill, which some would say may leave an opportunity for racial and other biases to creep into who is deemed a risk to the public.“Risk is linked to race and earned time would disadvantage people of color,” King said. “How is the risk decision being made? Those are the points of debate.”“The reality is this is where people and organizations need to be pushing for transparency making sure they are holding hearings with folks from the Sentencing Commission and the Bureau of Prisons. For me, those are the two agencies we need to be pushing for transparency from.”Kara Gotsch, director of Strategic Initiatives at the Sentencing Project worked with legislators on the bill. Her organization is not only focused on reduced sentencing but making sure the educational components are actually working and make sense.“Sentencing reform was a critical piece,” Gotsch said,  “The success of the bill will depend on implementation.”Implementation is key not only because of all the moving parts but because there is no permanent Attorney General in place as of yet of oversee all the processes associated with the bill.Gotsch added that the system’s current educational program for those incarcerated is lacking.“It’s a basic common sense issue,” Gotsch said. “Programming isn’t going to materialize unless we reduce the prison populations.”Officials at the Attorney General’s Office could not be reached for comment.last_img read more

Category: tcjvdnsenlvygakm Chinese researchers find Bt cotton controls pests while also promoting good bugs

first_img China’s GM cotton farmers are losing money Journal information: Nature Citation: Chinese researchers find Bt cotton controls pests while also promoting good bugs (2012, June 14) retrieved 18 August 2019 from More information: Widespread adoption of Bt cotton and insecticide decrease promotes biocontrol services, Nature (2012) doi:10.1038/nature11153AbstractOver the past 16 years, vast plantings of transgenic crops producing insecticidal proteins from the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) have helped to control several major insect pests and reduce the need for insecticide sprays. Because broad-spectrum insecticides kill arthropod natural enemies that provide biological control of pests, the decrease in use of insecticide sprays associated with Bt crops could enhance biocontrol services. However, this hypothesis has not been tested in terms of long-term landscape-level impacts10. On the basis of data from 1990 to 2010 at 36 sites in six provinces of northern China, we show here a marked increase in abundance of three types of generalist arthropod predators (ladybirds, lacewings and spiders) and a decreased abundance of aphid pests associated with widespread adoption of Bt cotton and reduced insecticide sprays in this crop. We also found evidence that the predators might provide additional biocontrol services spilling over from Bt cotton fields onto neighbouring crops (maize, peanut and soybean). Our work extends results from general studies evaluating ecological effects of Bt crops by demonstrating that such crops can promote biocontrol services in agricultural landscapes. Explore further © 2012 Phys.Orgcenter_img In their paper, the researchers report that cotton growers in China raising Bt cotton experience lower levels of bollworms than when using non genetically modified cotton and that they were able to reduce the amount of insecticide needed to control the pests as well. But perhaps more interestingly, they found that when conducting surveys in the Bt cotton fields, that many more lady bugs, spiders and other insects that feed on pests such as aphids were found, and better yet, were also more abundant in adjacent fields as well. Thus by growing Bt cotton, farmers are getting more from their fields while at the same time promoting the growth of “good” bugs that feed on other bad ones.Bt cotton is the only approved genetically modified crop being grown in China, and has been grown there since 1997. Current estimates suggest that as much as ninety five percent of all cotton now grown in that country is of the genetically modified variant, though its use is not without controversy.Most governments around the world including those in the United States, Asia, Europe and especially Africa have thus far slowed the movement of edible crops onto consumers dinner plates, fearing that some unknown disease might arise from their consumption. Even non-edible crops such as altered cotton have caused controversy due to studies being done in India that suggest that farmers that grow Bt cotton have a higher suicide rate than the rest of the country. Despite the lack of concrete proof, there persists a degree of suspicion and that has been enough to slow its use in that country.Despite the fact that genetically altered plants have been studied for decades, there is still fear among the general population that some tragedy will befall those who eat the results, thus, more research such as that being conducted in China will have to be done before common use of genetically altered crops becomes a reality. Cotton plant. Photo courtesy of USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service. ( — Because they can modify plants to either produce better fruit or in many other cases ward off disease and pests, researchers genetically alter crop plants to increase yields without adding additional costs to the process. One such success story is Bt cotton, a strain developed in the lab and so named because it harbors Bacillus thuringiensis, a bacterium that produces a chemical harmful to some insects and thus is often used as a pesticide. Farmers in the United States have been using it since 1996, and report that since that time, average yields have been up 5% even as costs have gone down due to use less of other pesticides. Now, researchers in China are reporting that not only does planting Bt cotton reduce losses from pests, it also allows other beneficial insect populations to increase not just in the cotton fields, but in those nearby growing other crops as well.

Category: tcjvdnsenlvygakm Best Western Hotels and Resorts revolutionises business model

first_img“In North America, there are currently 17,000 branded hotels, and another 12,000 unbranded, in the economy and midscale segments. The white label approach allows Best Western to tap into this tremendous potential without compromising its brand image,” said David Kong, President & CEO of Best Western Hotels & Resorts. “Currently, many of these hotels have little to no consumer relevance. Their brands have very little potential to drive superior revenue, and the owners are incurring high franchise fees from brands that don’t provide the necessary support, service or value.”SureStay was developed under the AAHOA Fair Franchising Principles, granting owners fair and reasonable early termination provisions with no liquidated damages, allowing them to have a voice through advisory committees, and allowing procurement outside of brand channels. All three brands will be marketed under the SureStay umbrella, with no consumer reference to Best Western Hotels & Resorts. This will allow Best Western to leverage its existing infrastructure while creating a new revenue stream, tapping into the vast opportunities that exist today in the economy space, without compromising the company’s already established position in its current segments.The benefits to ownership groups who choose to join SureStay are extensive. SureStay hotels will have access to Best Western Hotels & Resorts’ preferred OTA commission rates, its scale and global distribution, award-winning desktop and mobile websites and 70 years of industry expertise. Owners will be provided a cloud-based PMS and benefit from a robust digital platform featuring Google 360 virtual reality tours and enhanced SEO and SEM support. The hotels will receive individualized corporate consulting to help manage reviews and social media platforms and property-level sales coaching. In addition, they will receive the support of a global sales team focused on commercial and leisure clients.To qualify for SureStay, hotels will need to achieve and maintain a TripAdvisor score of 3.5 or higher.

Additionally, 100% of the marketing and technology fee (5%) will be re-invested to help hotels succeed.SureStay opens up a migration path for Best Western hotels who do not wish to pursue its design program. Nearly 20 SureStay letters of intent have already been signed since a soft launch to Best Western members earlier this month. Initial projections for SureStay’s growth have 150 hotels online within three years and 800 by 2026.“We believe SureStay creates a win-win-win situation – the consumers win through superior customer care, the hotels win through superior ROI and the brand wins through a new revenue stream,” said Kong. “Best Western members are firmly behind this concept as they understand the benefits and potential of this strategy.

Reuters/Amit Dave Pesticide deaths are not new to Yavatmal and according to information recently obtained under the Right to Information (RTI) Act by this correspondent,the district reported two deaths each year in 2013-14 and 2014-15 In 2015-16 eight people died due to pesticide poisoning But in all these years there is no record of which pesticides they used One of those who died in 2015-16 used monocrotophos Despite this trend of deaths the medical facilities werecompletelyinadequate for the influx of patients and lacked the ability to treat them appropriately The police records obtained under RTI show 22 deaths and 349 affected by pesticide poisoning in Yavatmal district in 2017 Only in five deaths did the police file cases against pesticide dealers under section 304(a) of the Indian Penal Code (causing death by negligence and the Insecticide Act) Most of those who died had used monocrotophos as one of the chemicals they sprayed and a mixture of toxic pesticides Madavi used Profex Super which is a combination of profenofos and cypermethrin that other farmers also did to their detriment Polo is another popular chemical and at least 80 of those affected and who survived reported using it according to police records sometimes along with other chemicals In Nagpur district (rural) too deaths due to pesticide poisoning occurred in 2013 when five people died according to police records In 2014 three deaths were reported while in 2015 five two in 2016 and eight in 2017 Akola district reported four deaths in 2017 The other districts in Amravati division Amravati Buldhana and Washim did not send replies to RTI requests on the number of deaths due to contact poisoning since 2013 Amravati division in which Yavatmal falls and other districts reported the highest incidence of pesticide poisoning A state government Special Investigation Team (SIT) report said that in 2016-17 434 patients sought treatment while in 2017-18 the number doubled to 886 Despite there being anannual increase in the number of people affected by poisoning the medical care facilities were abysmal the SIT report noted After last year’s incidents the Yavatmal government hospital introduced acetylcholinesterase serum tests to detect organophosphate poisoning However there are other chemicals being used in Vidarbha According to the report titled “Of Rights and Poisons Accountability of the Agrochemical Industry (Pesticide Action Network Asia Pacific 2018)” the pesticide Polo contains the insecticide active ingredient ‘diafenthiuron’ Diafenthiuron is a ‘thiourea’ compound and not an organophosphate This fact is alarming as there cannot be one solution to treat all cases of poisoning In addition data from Maharashtra a Bt cotton-growing state shows that pesticide consumption increased from 10969 metric tonnes in 2014 to 11665 MT in 2016 the report said The SIT report released in January this yearsaid that non-recommended pesticides were sold in Yavatmal and other districts and no action was taken against those selling them in the past five years Pesticides have to be certified by the Central Insecticide Bureau and Registration Committee(CIBRC) for a particular crop Yavatmal district had one quality control inspector for 16 talukas (vacant for two years) Apart from regulatory and administrative failure the SIT blamed the cases of poisoning on the practice of mixing pesticides which had no scientific basis and the use of battery operated pumps on tall cotton plants After the poisoning deaths cases were filed against two insecticide manufacturing companies and ten agricultural sales centres and licenses of five were scrapped In addition the sale of 76 pesticides was prohibited The report said that over 17 lakh packets of Bt cotton were sown in Yavatmal in 2017 and much of it was susceptible to sucking pests and the pink bollworm which in turn contributed to the increased spraying of insecticides The SIT found that people sprayed monocrotophos which is not recommended by the Central Institute for Cotton Research (CICR) Nagpur and that was the main culprit It demanded a ban on this insecticide immediately Pesticides newly supplied from the group nicotinamides from the ‘thiourea’ did not have to booklets with antidotes and the report said unless new pesticides have specific antidotes they should not be cleared for use The report has a bizarre suggestion which seems to have gone unnoticed It has recommended a health check-up for farmers/labourers doing chemical spraying which has to be produced before they are given this work failing which a case of attempted suicide under section 309 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and section 304 for culpable homicide should be registered against them The report recommended a health check-up in each village at the gram panchayat level of all those who are going to spray chemicals Each person should get a fitness certificate from a health authority and produce it on demand A senior government official told Firstpost that the Maharashtra government had accepted the report and this provision to penalise those spraying without fitness certificate was in fact recommended However it still has to be enforced The government so far has only focused on improving reporting of poisoning cases and creating awareness about spraying pesticides He said due to these measures there have been no deaths till now in 2018 The government has instead of setting up new hospitals in Yavatmal and Akola sanctioned Rs 10 crore to set up a toxicological centre he added However the pesticide shops are doing roaring business and recommending all kinds of chemicals to farmers desperate to stave off another year’s crop loss to the pink bollworm The PANAP report said in the Bt cotton-growing areas of Yavatmal 11 pesticides were used nine of which are Highly Hazardous Pesticides (HHP)s —diafenthiuron profenofos cypermethrin monocrotophos imidacloprid fipronil spinosad glyphosate and acephate Not one of the Yavatmal poisoning victims interviewed use safety equipment apart from the casual work clothes Those affected in the hospital this year said they didn’t use safety kits and only tied kerchiefs around their faces Of the 11 pesticides two were not approved by the CIBRC for use on cotton These are the fungicide copper oxychloride and the highly hazardous herbicide glyphosate The use of glyphosate is approved only for tea and non-crop weed control However the report said agriculture officers and retailers have been recommending glyphosate to be used for weed control in several crops including vegetables non-cropped areas bushes and general weed control while the State Agriculture Department recommended seven uses of glyphosate Victims in the Yavatmal government hospital listed glyphosate use among others while spraying Also the farmers are planting illegal “BG3” cotton or herbicide-tolerant cotton which is meant to withstand the spraying of glyphosate The situation needs much more monitoring if poisoning cases are to be avoided A key factor that is not regulated is the kind of cotton seeds being planted in Vidarbha which are illegal herbicide tolerant ones and the resistance of pests like the pink bollworm to Bt cotton the large garlanded photograph of her husband Devidas Madavi stands out.
