 Modern Medicine May Not Be Doing Your Microbiome Any Favors
National Public Radio, April 14, 2014 Monday

 TERRY GROSS: This is FRESH AIR. I'm Terry Gross. There's a lot of theories about why food allergies, asthma, celiac disease and intestinal disorders like Crohn's disease have been on the rise. My guest, Dr. Martin Blaser, speculates that it may be connected to the overuse of antibiotics, which has resulted in killing off strains of bacteria that typically live in the gut. Blaser is an expert on the human microbe biome, which is the collection of bacteria, viruses, fungi and other microbes that live in and on the body. In fact, about 70 to 90 percent of all the cells in the human body aren't human at all; they're microorganisms.  Blaser is the director of the Human Microbiome Program and former chair of medicine at NYU. And he's the former president of the Infectious Diseases Society of America. His new book is called "Missing Microbes: How the Overuse of Antibiotics is Fueling Our Modern Plagues."

 Here's a radical notion: It is simultaneously possible to believe that women are entitled to equal pay and to not support the Paycheck Fairness Act. Not that you'd know it from the rhetoric President Obama and fellow Democrats are happily flinging at Republicans who dare to oppose the measure. "I don't know why you would resist the idea that women should be paid the same as men and then deny that that's not always happening out there," Obama said Tuesday. "If Republicans in Congress ... want to show that they do, in fact, care about women being paid the same as men, then show me. ... They can join us, in this, the 21st century and vote yes on the Paycheck Fairness Act."

Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly, April 10, 2014 Thursday

 Editor’s note: The full text of these decisions can be found on Lawyers Weekly’s website, masslawyersweekly.com. Criminal Murder Where a defendant has been convicted of first-degree murder, the conviction should be affirmed despite the defendant’s assertion that the judge erred in several evidentiary rulings, that counsel rendered ineffective assistance by failing to object to inadmissible evidence and by offering inadmissible evidence, that the prosecutor made an improper closing argument and that the judge gave erroneous instructions to the jury, particularly as to the issue of lack of criminal responsibility. “… The fact that the defendant refused to answer certain questions on advice of counsel is entitled to no greater protection than unadvised refusals to answer. However, the portion of the refusals that are identified with the advice of counsel is protected, as is the defendant’s request to confer with counsel before answering. All references to counsel, but not the refusals themselves (he did not invoke his right to silence), should have been the subject of a motion to redact.

News Bites - Private Companies, April 9, 2014 Wednesday

  A number of changes to employment law took effect from 6 April this year. In addition, a couple of developments that we were expecting to happen in April have been delayed until later this year. Some of these changes are helpful to employers but others will lead to increased costs. ACAS early conciliation From April, claimant employees will have to submit details of their dispute to ACAS before they can issue a claim in the employment tribunal. They will be offered early conciliation for a month, which can be extended by two weeks, and the time limit for presenting a claim will be extended. If conciliation is refused by either party or does not succeed, the employee will be able to present his or her claim. There is no obligation on either party to conciliate but it is hoped that ACAS will have a high success rate and that this free service will mean a number of potential employment claims are settled before tribunal proceedings are started, which will save employers time and money.

 There's no magic wand to help bring about conflict resolution; BETHAN DARWIN LAW & MORE
The Western Mail, April 9, 2014 Wednesday

 IHAVE a magic wand. It used to be my daughter's magic wand but she's nine now and the princess phase is SO two seasons ago. Sometimes I refer to my magic wand when employees seek my advice on a difficult situation at work. This might involve bullying or discrimination, a personal relationship with a colleague which has broken down and led to difficulties working together or poor line management leaving the employee feeling undervalued and side-lined. I ask them if I could wave my magic wand, would they wish for the working relationship to be fixed or over? Nine times out of 10, even where no formal grievance has yet been issued, they wish for it to be over. This is perhaps not surprising. In the typical cycle of conflict at work, just like conflict in a marriage, legal advice tends to come towards the end. Or at the beginning of the end.

 Asian Develpment Band subscribes to the framework of "Avoid-Shift-Improve", which prioritizes interventions that will support sustainability for the transport sector" : Ravi Peri - Principal Transport Specialist, Asian Development Bank
India Transport Portal, April 8, 2014 6:30 AM EST

 India Transport Portal: Please present us the Asian Development Bank with a focus on the transportation sector. What are your main initiatives in India? Mr. Ravi Peri: ADB's Strategy 2020 - the Bank's long-term strategic framework for 2008-2020 - focuses on the three critical strategic agendas in developing Asia: inclusive economic growth, environmentally sustainable growth, and regional integration. ADB believes that investment in infrastructure is fundamental to achieve poverty reduction and inclusive growth, and can also contribute to environmentally sustainable growth and regional integration. With this objective, ADB is investing to improve transport, communication connectivity and other infrastructure within and between developing member countries. Significant improvements to India's transport infrastructure are necessary to ensure that the country achieves its goals of rapid, more inclusive, and sustainable growth. Various modes of transport need to be developed in an integrated and sustainable manner to realize an efficient, safe, and regionally balanced transportation system that limits energy use and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. ADB's investments seek to address the following areas of transport operations:Improve network coverage and operational capacity across transport sub-sectors, Better management of road assets, Integrated multimodal mix and energy efficiency, Urban transport, Safety, Regional cooperation and integration.  In terms of specific transport sub-sectors, ADB's interventions in India, as envisaged in the Country Partnership Strategy 2013-2017, relate to state roads (state highways and district roads), rural roads, railways, and urban transport.

 Bird & Bird: Key revisions to UK employment law effective 6 April 2014
News Bites - Private Companies, April 8, 2014 Tuesday

  New and revised employment laws came into force yesterday (6 April). ACAS Early Conciliation ACAS is now able to offer optional Early Conciliation to help to settle a dispute without going to tribunal. For claims lodged on or after 6 May 2014, it will become a mandatory requirement, unless an exemption applies, for a claimant to have made an Early Conciliation notification to ACAS. Tribunal claims will not be accepted unless the complaint has been referred to ACAS and a conciliation certificate issued. This certificate confirms that the Early Conciliation requirements have been met. The initial period of Early Conciliation is intended to be up to one calendar month. However, if both parties agree that longer is needed, the period can be extended, only once, by a further 14 days. Generally the limitation periods for bringing claims at the Employment Tribunal are either three or six calendar months depending on the nature of the claim. When the claimant contacts ACAS this will "pause" the time limit for presenting their claim to a tribunal. This pause can be for up to one calendar month, plus a further 14 days if more time is needed. The time limit will start to run again when the claimant receives their formal acknowledgement (the certificate) that Early Conciliation has finished. Statutory discrimination and equal pay questionnaire
 Canada: Implications Of Social Safety Nets In Care Costing: Who Pays?
Mondaq Business Briefing, April 8, 2014 Tuesday

 When a child or adult suffers a severe traumatic brain injury or spinal cord injury, the costs for care into the future are significant. Failure to adequately address the needs of a severely disabled client through medical evidence and a solid life care plan can have a disastrous impact on the case. Since the needs are for a lifetime, many items equate to high figures. Traditionally, the insurer and defence counsel have contested the care costs items on the basis that the specific item being sought is either not needed to the extent asserted, is unreasonable, or the market rates are much lower. These legitimate arguments have controlled unreasonable and exaggerated wish lists when presented by overzealous life care planners. On occasion, however, the insurer will go beyond these legitimate arguments and seek to reduce their exposure by relying on social welfare programs. In other words, the life care planner simply asserts in their report that the item should not be allowed because publically funded social service nets are in place to care for the plaintiff.

 Canada: No Liability For Potholes
Mondaq Business Briefing, April 2, 2014 Wednesday

 McLeod v. General Motors of Canada Limited et al., 2014 ONSC 134 The Ontario Superior Court of Justice recently dismissed an action against the Municipality of Dutton/Dunwich (the "Municipality") for failing to maintain a gravel roadway in a claim arising from a motor vehicle accident. The trial dealt solely with liability as damages had previously been agreed upon at $950,000. On September 18, 2004, the 18-year-old plaintiff was driving home on an unpaved roadway with a dirt and gravel surface, when she was surprised by an oncoming vehicle. To allow both vehicles to pass safely, she had to steer her vehicle to the edge of the roadway, and when she steered back to the centre, she encountered potholes which caused her to lose control of her vehicle. She sustained serious injuries and commenced an action against the Municipality.

 Romania: The Dispute Resolution Review
Mondaq Business Briefing, April 2, 2014 Wednesday

 Article by Levana Zigmund1 I INTRODUCTION TO DISPUTE RESOLUTION FRAMEWORK Disputes in Romania are settled in court in the vast majority of cases, under procedures regulated mainly by the new Civil Procedure Code ('the CPC'). The CPC, entered into force on 15 February 2013, has carried out a systemic and extensive overhaul of the Romanian dispute resolution model. With a specific focus on acceleration of trial proceedings, the new regulation has reformed both the schedule and the content of proceedings taking place in various phases of the lawsuit, whilst attempting to clarify many of the controversies raised by interpretable provisions in the former regulation. The commentary here takes into consideration the procedures as currently in force. A brief outline of the main amendments envisaged to be brought to the CPC is included in Section II, infra. The judicial system in Romania comprises:

Mondaq Business Briefing, April 1, 2014 Tuesday

 Health Alert (Australia) JUDGMENTS Commonwealth 18 March 2014 - Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) v Safe Breast Imaging Pty Ltd [2014] FCA 238 This is the second case brought by the ACCC against a breast imaging company determined by the Federal Court in the last two weeks. Safe Breast Imaging provided breast imaging services using a Multifrequency Electrical Impedance Mammograph device. The benefits of these were advertised to the public in various locations online and in a pamphlet which made claims about the benefits of breast imaging, including that the scans would put the customer's mind at ease, they measure breast health, detect signs of abnormal pathology and that it was a safe option to mammograms. The Court found this constituted misleading and deceptive conduct as it represented that there was a scientific and medical basis on which the device could predict the risk of breast cancer, it could be used to assure a customer that they did not have breast cancer and that it could be used as a substitute for a mammography despite there being inadequate scientific medical basis to support these representations. The Court also found that the advertising made the representation that a doctor would be involved in the preparation of the breast report when this wasn't the case.

 Environmental approval - Revised permitting 'sin' puts approved sites at risk
Windpower Monthly, April 1, 2014

  Environmental objections call into doubt the future of several large offshore wind farms in German waters and more projects could be affected under new rules on extension granted to existing permits. Sara Knight investigates   The last thing the beleaguered German offshore sector needs is a nature-protection non-governmental organisation (NGO) threatening to block a construction permit after expensive installation logistics have been organised and work is poised to start. But that could happen to the 288MW Butendiek project.   Talks are onging, but there are other projects and extensions that are also looking wobbly, not only for environmental reasons but because requirements set by a new regulation may have been overlooked.   The Butendiek offshore wind farm conflict erupted in February, when nature-protection organisation Nabu (Naturschutzbund Deutschland) released a report by the Institute for Nature Protection and Nature Protection Law. The report sharply criticised the permits for, in particular, Butendiek, but also other German North Sea offshore wind projects - Dan Tysk, Amrumbank West and Borkum Riffgrund II.

 Self representing litigants
ABC Transcripts (Australia), April 1, 2014 Tuesday

 Damien Carrick: Hello, welcome to the Law Report, Damien Carrick with you. If you had to stand up and represent yourself in court, how would you cope? It's probably something we should all be thinking about because hiring a lawyer is expensive, and legal aid budgets are under extreme stress. So flying solo in court is now becoming increasingly common. Today we're going to explore what it's like to be a self-represented litigant in our civil and family court systems, and also explore the impact these litigants are having on our court systems. Last week 'John' (not his real name) ran a three-day hearing in the Federal Circuit Court in Brisbane that resulted in a confidential settlement.
