first_imgJustice Thomas meets with Barry U. law students April 1, 2011 Regular News SUPREME COURT JUSTICE CLARENCE THOMAS from the left, met with three students from the Federalist Society chapter at Barry University School of Law — Amit Schlesinger, Rinaldo J. Cartaya III, and Nicholas Primrose — who attended the 30th Annual Student Symposium at the University of Virginia. The students spent the weekend hearing panels regarding the theme of this year’s symposium, “Capitalism, Markets, and the Constitution.” Justice Thomas delivered the keynote address discussing his life and ideology on the court and where he sees the judicial branch and country going. He cautioned that the country is at a crossroads where the way we interpret the Constitution and decide cases could greatly affect our society. Other highlights of the event included a speech by former CEO of BB&T Bank, John Allison, who spoke on the policy implications that led to the housing bubble and ideas about changing federal monetary and lending policies. His speech ended with an inspiration call to “commit yourself to being a lifelong learner. Learn from your mistakes. Life is a constant education, if you choose to make it one.”last_img read more

Baker & McKenzie rolls out agile working

first_imgInternational firm Baker & McKenzie will roll out agile working across its global network, offering flexible working to its entire headcount. The change will be brought in with immediate effect across the firm’s 77 offices, a spokesperson confirmed today. The firm told the Gazette the programme will include alternative working hours, remote working, and regular working time outside of the office.The initiative is being led by Peter May, chief talent officer at the firm, and global executive committee member Claudia Prado.May told the Gazette the decision came off the back of a global engagement survey conducted last year in which one of the issues that surfaced was a desire for ‘flexible working’, including remote working and flexible hours.’We understand that in the 21st century workers needs change and that there should be a new approach that realises people have different needs,’ he said.May said while demands on physical premises may change eventually the benefits of the programme would have a ‘positive effect on staff including on productivity and morale’.The firm will now enter into an 18-month implementation period where it will bring its working policy across its global offices into line with those that already offer flexible working, including the UK and Spain.Baker & McKenzie has 4,607 lawyers including 1,580 partners.last_img read more

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow – The 2018 Kansas Wheat Harvest is officially here.Farmers throughout the county got into their fields and started cutting wheat- in arguably the most important week of the year for Sumner County.According to the Kansas Wheat Commission Day 1 report just issued this afternoon, Mike Morlan from Progressive Ag Coop in Sumner and Harper counties, reports that they received some rain on Thursday of last week, so harvest really began on Friday. He estimates that the area is about halfway done with harvest and if it stays hot and dry they will be wrapped up in a week to 10 days.However, they are expecting a rain overnight which could slow things down. Acres in the area are reduced from average, so he says harvest is “not going to take long.” He reports that in Harper County, yields are averaging 25 bushels per acre, but in Sumner County they are about 35 bushels per acre. He says test weights are good, averaging a little over 60 pounds, and protein is average to slightly above average.Scott Van Allen, who farms in Sumner County, told the Kansas Wheat Commission that his harvest began on Saturday. Wheat in his area is short, with grass and weeds under the canopy. He says test weights have been good, ranging from 58-61 pounds, and yields so far are average, even a little better than he was expecting, averaging in the low 40s.Farmers across Sumner County were well on their way by late Sunday afternoon.  And harvesting up and down Anson Road was going at maximum pace. Anson Road is a handy strip of paved central Sumner County road going north and south, connecting the Wellington City Lake to, well, something up north.Four cutting operations were in full force on a four-mile stretch inside the Osborn Township from 10th St to 30th Ave.The farmers were were cutting wheat Sunday in this concentrated part of the world were:•Bert Neff Farms were just a block south of U.S. 160 had one combine rolling and second one on the way. •The Strand family were busy knocking out huge swaths of wheat on a field owned by Jean Marks trust•It really isn’t harvest until Becker Farms are out cutting wheat. There were a line of Massey combines to the north of the Strands. •Chitwood Farms most certainly had the most impressive combines of the bunch – running their Case IH 8120 combines through a field at 30th Ave. and Anson.As far as the wheat price? Let’s just keep this story on the positive.Follow us on Facebook.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
