Breaking The Silence: The Veterinarian’S Duty To Report, Martine Lachance 2016 Université du Québec à MOntréal

Breaking The Silence: The Veterinarian’S Duty To Report, Martine Lachance

Animal Sentience: An Interdisciplinary Journal on Animal Feeling

Animals, like children and disabled elders, are not only the subjects of abuse, but they are unable to report and protect themselves from it. Veterinarians, like human physicians, are often the ones to become aware of the abuse and the only ones in a position to report it when their human clients are unwilling to do so. This creates a conflict between professional confidentiality to the client and the duty to protect the victim and facilitate prosecution when the law has been broken. I accordingly recommend that veterinarian associations make reporting of abuse mandatory.


Climate Change And Federal Crop Insurance, Chad Marzen, Grant Ballard 2015 Florida State University

Climate Change And Federal Crop Insurance, Chad Marzen, Grant Ballard

Chad G. Marzen

The federal crop insurance program is well-positioned today to promote resilient agricultural practices which mitigate the future impact of climate change. In light of climate change risk, this article examines issues relating to climate change and the federal crop insurance program. As a government-administered program, the federal crop insurance program is in a position where it can implement policies and standards to reduce climate change risk. The first substantive section of this article examines the present risk of climate change in agriculture, discusses recent steps taken to address climate change in agriculture by the Obama administration, and generally discusses the ...


Irreconcilable Differences? The Geneva Act Of The Lisbon Agreement And The Common Law, Daniel Gervais 2015

Irreconcilable Differences? The Geneva Act Of The Lisbon Agreement And The Common Law, Daniel Gervais

Daniel J Gervais

This Article considers whether the Geneva Act (2015) of the 1958 Lisbon Agreement achieved a reconciliation between the common-law approach to protecting certain GIs as trademarks and the (currently) mostly European approach of using a sui generis system to protect GIs. In “Old Lisbon” as in many parts of Europe—and perhaps more strikingly in France—GIs have deep roots in the terroir. And the terroir matters: it is not an exaggeration to say that some countries link terroir to national identity. New World producers see things differently, but they also recognize the value of geographic origin, at least for ...

Enhancing Biodiversity On Working Agricultural Lands Through Environmental Mitigation And Offsets: Opportunities In Australia And The United States, Matthew Roach 2015 Stanford University

Enhancing Biodiversity On Working Agricultural Lands Through Environmental Mitigation And Offsets: Opportunities In Australia And The United States, Matthew Roach

Matthew Roach

Australia has extensive experience in managing working agricultural lands to enhance biodiversity. State and Commonwealth agencies are increasingly using environmental offsets as a tool to manage the impacts of development. However, working agricultural lands are generally not considered a source of potential environmental offsets, as agencies prefer that land used for offsets be wholly set aside for environmental management purposes with limited or no agricultural activities. This contrasts with the United States, where efforts are underway to use working agricultural lands for mitigation. This paper proposes that working agricultural lands can be used for environmental offsets under the Environment Protection ...


The Safe Drinking Water / Food Law Nexus, Margot J. Pollans 2015 Pace University School of Law

The Safe Drinking Water / Food Law Nexus, Margot J. Pollans

Pace Environmental Law Review

At 2 AM on August 2, 2014, the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency issued the following warning to the citizens of Toledo: “Do Not Drink.” The Ohio City's tap water was contaminated with microcystin, a toxin that can cause diarrhea, vomiting, and abnormal liver function. The source was an algal bloom in Lake Erie resulting from high levels of agricultural fertilizers and animal waste. For three days, Toledo residents drank only bottled water.

This is just one of many similar examples of agricultural contamination of urban drinking water supplies. Creating a physical connection between urban and rural communities, this pollution ...

Gandhi’S Prophecy: Corporate Violence And A Mindful Law For Bhopal, Nehal A. Patel 2015 University of Michigan - Dearborn

Gandhi’S Prophecy: Corporate Violence And A Mindful Law For Bhopal, Nehal A. Patel

Nehal A. Patel

Abstract

Over thirty years have passed since the Bhopal chemical disaster began, and in that time scholars of corporate social responsibility (CSR) have discussed and debated several frameworks for improving corporate response to social and environmental problems. However, CSR discourse rarely delves into the fundamental architecture of legal thought that often buttresses corporate dominance in the global economy. Moreover, CSR discourse does little to challenge the ontological and epistemological assumptions that form the foundation for modern economics and the role of corporations in the world.

I explore methods of transforming CSR by employing the thought of Mohandas Gandhi. I pay ...

South Africa's Agricultural Sector Twenty Years After Democracy (1994 To 2013), Jan C. Greyling, Nick Vink, Edward Mabaya 2015 Stellenbosch University

South Africa's Agricultural Sector Twenty Years After Democracy (1994 To 2013), Jan C. Greyling, Nick Vink, Edward Mabaya

Professional Agricultural Workers Journal

Abstract

South Africa’s agricultural sector has undergone substantial policy reform since the dawn of democracy in 1994. Now, twenty years later, it is an opportune time to look back at this period to review key successes and failures. This article revisits South Africa’s context and policy at the start of this period, the reforms that followed, and evaluates the transformational effect (or lack thereof) on the sector. For this purpose, the article pulls from both qualitative sources and descriptive statistics to provide both a historical context and current perspective. The analysis shows that redistributive land reform and smallholder ...

The 1995 Farm Bill, Darnell B. Smith 2015 Iowa State University

The 1995 Farm Bill, Darnell B. Smith

Iowa Ag Review

As the 1995 Farm Bill debate draws near, issues related to economic stabilization, trade and market development, federal budget pressures, and the environment have risen as primary areas of policy debate.


Environmental Issues In The 1995 Farm Bill, P. G. Lakshminarayan, Bruce A. Babcock 2015 Iowa State University

Environmental Issues In The 1995 Farm Bill, P. G. Lakshminarayan, Bruce A. Babcock

Iowa Ag Review

The perception is growing that U.S. agricultural policy has reached a major turning point increased trade opportunities with GATT, a continued decline in rural population, increased budgetary (fiscal) pressure, and growing environmental concerns are among the primary reasons. Because of these trends, nontraditional interest groups representing urban and environmental interests will play an increasingly important role in shaping future farm legislation.

The Conservation Reserve Program, John R. Kruse

The Balanced Budget Amendment: How It May Impact Farm Programs, William H. Meyers

Iowa Ag Review

Most farmers support the concept of a balanced federal budget However, the Balanced Budget Amendment (BBA) already passed by the U.S. House of Representatives and recently rejected by the Senate, could have far more impact on farmers than the Farm Bill itself.

One of the more intriguing alternatives under consideration for the 1995 farm bill is the "Iowa Plan.'' This idea originated with a group oflowa's farm and commodity organizations.


Farm Freedom Or Freedom To Farm?, William H. Meyers, Darnell B. Smith, Steven L. Elmore 2015 Iowa State University

Farm Freedom Or Freedom To Farm?, William H. Meyers, Darnell B. Smith, Steven L. Elmore

Iowa Ag Review

Two proposals have surfaced in the U.S. House of Representatives with similar names but very different implications. The "Farm Freedom Act of 1995," introduced by urban members as H.R. 2010, is essentially a phase-out of current programs over five years.
