first_imgMuch like row-crop prices, beef cattle prices are high now and reached historic highs earlier this year. Facing drought and feed shortage, though, southeastern cattle producers still must make tough decisions when it comes to their financial bottom lines and keeping herds healthy.Southeast Cattle Advisor website was developed by cattle experts with the University of Georgia, Auburn University, University of Florida and Clemson University to be “a one-stop shop for cattle producers to go there and get information related to risk management,” said Curt Lacy, the UGA Cooperative Extension economist who helped develop the website.Brad Haire, news director with the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, speaks with Lacy about how the website can help cattle producers weather their risk.Watch High prices, new website help Southeast cattlemen weather risk.last_img read more

Rising energy costs are driving up rates for otherutilities in Vermont, New England and acrossthe country, with pending increases running as high as 72 percent in Maryland. In Vermont, rate hikespending or approved in the last year range from 10 percent to 23 percent. (A list of Vermontrate increase requests is attached.)  In New England,rate hikes pending or approved in the last year range from four percent to 60percent.  (A state-by-state regional summary is also attached.) Also, with the encouragement of the state legislature, Green Mountain Powerseparately filed today an innovative proposal that would establish a newregulatory framework for the Company.  Last year, the General Assemblypassed legislation (Act 61) that provided additional authority to utilities andregulators to propose alternative regulation plans with a particular emphasison the public policy goal of separating the financial success of a utility fromincreased electricity sales, thereby removing potential barriers to energyconservation.  Green Mountain Power operates in a highly efficient manner, serving 464customers per employee. The other four largest utilities in Vermont ranged from 367 customers peremployee to 155 customers per employee in 2004, which is the most recent dataavailable. v\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);}o\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);}w\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);}.shape {behavior:url(#default#VML);}st1\:*{behavior:url(#default#ieooui) }#10-06                                                                             April 14, 2006 GREENMOUNTAIN POWER ASKSFOR 11.95 PERCENT INCREASE IN RATES;INCREASINGPOWER COSTS PRINCIPAL FACTOR Vermont utility rate increasefilings in past 12 months Green Mountain Power is the first electric utility inthe state to file a plan under this new law.  (Vermont Gas Systems filed itsplan in September 2005).  Act 61 requires the Public Service Board toreport to the General Assembly on the number and progress of utilityalternative regulation initiatives by January 15, 2007. “We have been able to keep our rates relatively flat over the lastseveral years because we have done a good job of managing our power supplycosts” said Chris Dutton, president and chief executive officer.“Our low-cost power contracts with Vermont Yankee, Hydro Quebec andMorgan Stanley have brought significant value to our customers. However, as theMorgan Stanley contract expires at the end of this year, we are forced toreplace it in a significantly higher cost marketplace.”  Green Mountain Power Corporation (www.greenmountainpower.biz(link is external))is a Vermont-based energy services company serving 90,000 electric customers. Higher energy costs in New England areattributable to several factors, including the run-up in global oil and naturalgas prices and concern about the impact on the wholesale market of a predictedabnormally active hurricane season.  3/10/06 (10/11/05 requested and 11/05 took effect) 16.7% 13.6% Burlington Electric Department 3/16/06 22.86% Green Mountain Power 4/14/06 11.95%             Ifthe full rate request is approved, the monthly bill for average residentialcustomer using 650 kwh would increase by $10.25, from $85.74 to $95.99.             COLCHESTER, VT. . . Green Mountain Power (NYSE: GMP) today asked the Vermont Public ServiceBoard to authorize an 11.95 percent rate increase to go into effect on January1, 2007. The Company said 88 percent of the increase is due to rising powercosts in a post-Katrina wholesale market, while the remaining 12 percent is dueto increasing state and regional transmission costs. 2005 and2006 New EnglandElectricity Rate Increases (pending or approved) State Range of Increase Requested Connecticut 4% to 22% Maine 8% to 10% Massachusetts 4% to 55% New Hampshire 12% to 60% Rhode Island 10% to 25%             Ifapproved by regulators, the proposal would create opportunities and incentivesfor the Company to become more efficient, improve customer service, removeincentives to benefit from increased electricity sales, streamline costrecovery, share efficiency savings with customers, increase credit quality, andreduce regulatory and borrowing costs borne by customers.  In addition,Green Mountain Power proposes directing additional funding to Power Partners,Green Mountain Power’s low income assistance program.  Utility Date of Request or Implementation Increase Requested Village of Hyde Park Electric Department 5/16/2005 14.81% Village of Johnson Water & Light Department 5/16/2005 14.83% Town of Readsboro Electric Department 6/16/2005 15.27% Town of Stowe Electric Department 6/16/2005   9.94% Village of Jacksonville Electric Department 7/1/2005 12.72% Lyndonville Electric Department 11/16/05 17.68% Vermont Electric Cooperative 12/1/05 14.35% Vermont Gas “While we know any increase in rates is difficult for our customers, webelieve we have been able to keep our request comparatively low through ouraggressive power supply management and efficient operations,” said Mr.Dutton. “It is also important to note that we are maintaining ageneration mix that has extremely low air emissions.

first_imgThe National Police have revealed an alleged plot to incite riots by four people affiliated with the Save Indonesia Coalition (KAMI) in Medan, North Sumatra, who were recently arrested amid the wave of nationwide protests against the controversial Job Creation Law.The four activists, the group’s Medan chairman Khairil Amri and members identified as JG, NZ, WRP, were arrested between Oct. 9 and Monday for allegedly spreading information that instigated hatred and hostility based on tribal affiliations, religion, race and societal groups (SARA).In Thursday’s press conference, National Police spokesperson Argo Yuwono said police detectives had discovered conversations in a WhatsApp group the four were part of, as evidence that the activists had conspired to incite riots. For instance, JG allegedly said in one of the conversations that members should create a scenario similar to the 1998 May riots that exploded in Jakarta nearing the downfall of Soeharto’s regime, the police claimed.The riots resulted in nearly 1,200 deaths, with dozens of reported rape and sexual violence cases of Chinese-Indonesian women, looting in malls and grocery stores and hundreds of buildings, shop-houses and houses set on fire.“[JG] said ‘make the scenario like 1998’, ‘looting shops and houses of Chinese’ and ‘include thugs in the looting’,” Argo said on Thursday.According to the police, Khairil allegedly instructed the people in the group to “gather witnesses to pelt the House of Representatives members and police officers” and to send pictures of rocks and the House’s building with the caption “guaranteed as a complete nest of thieves and demons”. WRP also allegedly asked the members to carry Molotov cocktails during one of the protests.Read also: Arrest of KAMI activists criticized as attempt to suppress freedom of expressionArgo said the police would use the WhatsApp conversations as evidence, in addition to a Molotov cocktail they seized during one of the protests, mobile phones and a sum of money amounting to Rp 500,000 (US$33.87) allegedly used to fund the logistics for the rallies.The police charged the four KAMI activists under Article 28 of the 2016 Electronic Information and Transactions (ITE) Law on spreading fake news and hate speech and Article 160 of the Criminal Code on instigating criminal conduct. With the charges, the activists could face a maximum of six years’ imprisonment.In addition to the four, authorities also arrested four KAMI activists in Jakarta between Saturday and Tuesday.KAMI itself has condemned the arrest of its affiliates, saying they perceived it as “repressive action” that was “politically motivated”.The passage of the Job Creation Law on Oct. 5 sparked waves of protests in the country, with the police noting that by Oct. 8, protests had occurred in all 34 provinces of the country. The demonstrations have continued for two weeks so far. In Jakarta, the police arrested on Tuesday 1,377 people after a peaceful protest turned into riots in some parts of the capital city. All but one, who was detained after being caught in possession of a slingshot, had been released as of Thursday, tribunnews.com reported.Meanwhile, the police in Ambon, Maluku, arrested 13 Pattimura University students who participated in a protest rejecting the controversial law on Monday. Two of the students, identified as MR and HS, were named suspects for allegedly being behind the riots that ensued in the Ir. Putuhena street in the city.The arrest of the 13 students prompted a protest from other students united under the Ambon chapter of the United Front of Indonesian Muslim Students (KAMMI) who demanded the former’s release on Tuesday, saying that the arrested “were not involved in vandalism or clashes” in Monday’s protest.Topics :last_img read more

first_imgGerman industries should be free to introduce auto-enrolment into any industry-wide pension agreement, according to Peter Hanau, professor at the University of Cologne, and Marco Arteaga, a lawyer at DLA Piper.They should also be allowed to use existing vehicles for arrangements set down in collective bargaining agreements, foregoing the obligation to set up industry-wide schemes.These are two of the main findings of a study authored by Hanau and Arteaga and published recently by BMAS, Germany’s labour ministry.BMAS commissioned the study in December last year to look into the ministry’s proposal on the possible introduction of industry-wide pension plans – dubbed §17b-plans, relating to the legal paragraph that would have to be created to define them.  In their 90-page study, the experts agree with the ministry that industry-wide pension arrangements could help increase the number of participants in pension plans – especially if the auto-enrolment option is introduced.In contrast to the ministry’s proposal, however, the academics see little need for the creation of industry-wide pension vehicles.They said existing solutions including Pensionskassen, Pensionsfonds and insurance-linked Direktversicherungen could continue to serve as pension plans for companies that are part of an industry-wide pension arrangement.All pension plans made under this new regime should be based on a defined ambition model, with a guaranteed base pension and possible top-ups.These pension promises should be covered against employer insolvency in a separate fund within the current PSV lifeboat scheme for those companies that still lack insolvency protection.Germany’s pensions industry is still poring over the full proposal, but the retirement provision association aba has already published a first reaction, welcoming “the general direction” of the study and the 200-page study on tax incentives in the second pillar. (summary in German) Heribert Karch, chairman at the aba, said it was good the studies called for “an increase in institutionalisation instead of individualisation”.He also welcomed the proposal for auto-enrolment to be included in industry-wide pension arrangements because “industries could choose to include whole groups of people without the need for any state control.” “It is impossible,” he added, “to increase participation of industries or companies if the framework remains too complex for medium-sized enterprises, or if employees are facing the threat of only getting out what they paid in.”According to Karch, the study on tax incentives, commissioned by the finance ministry at the beginning last year to help increase SME participation in the second pillar, is “a first step” in the direction of simplification.  The authors – academics from the University of Würzburg, including professor Dirk Kiesewetter – say companies with fewer than 20 employees should be given a discount on costs for occupational pensions.Further, employers should be obliged to top-up employees’ deferred contribution plans, or Entgeltumwandlung.They also strongly recommended the government launch information campaigns on supplementary pensions to raise awareness among the public and companies.last_img read more

first_imgLast December, 195 states signed the Paris Agreement, which set out that the global rise in temperature should be kept well below 2°C, and that countries should try to limit the increase to 1.5°C. AP2 said this pact had bolstered its view that society was now at the beginning of a transition to a low-carbon economy – and that this made it more and more important that climate factors were embedded into risk assessments, as well as investment decisions.Eva Halvarsson, chief executive at AP2, said: “To be able to assess our portfolio, we need to have an idea of what the target looks like, as well as metrics that can be used for assessment.”She said this was exactly why the fund was constantly working on these matters, and that the publication was meant to give insight into AP2’s work in this area.The latest 10 stocks to be divested are in the power utility sector, and the decision to sell them off was made as a result of a follow-up analysis of financial climate risks in this industry.The original work was conducted in 2015 and pinpointed 28 firms for divestment that derived a significant portion of profits mainly from coal-fired electricity generation.The Swedish pension fund said climate issues – and climate change in particular – presented huge risks, as well as big opportunities, for a long-term investor such as AP2. Sweden’s second national pensions buffer fund, AP2, has divested 10 more of the stocks it holds on the grounds of financial climate risk, bringing the total number of holdings sold off for this reason to 76, it said, on releasing a publication outlining its approach to the transition towards a low-carbon economy.In the report, the SEK300bn (€30.6bn) fund says a long-term, responsible approach to the environment, ethics and corporate management increases the value of the companies and that pushing forward with sustainability issues will have a positive impact on its returns.AP2 said it aimed to develop its portfolio in line with the 2°C target of the Paris Agreement because climate change was likely to have a big effect on long-term returns.It said it would achieve this by integrating climate analysis into its investment process.last_img read more
