 Will insurance cover removal of bees nest?; Your queries answered
The Irish Times, October 23, 2014 Thursday

 Q We have a problem; a swarm of bees has got into our house, under one or more roof tiles, this summer. We suspect there is honey there, just below our roof which is very difficult to get at. Our house is insured. If it is costly to correct the problem, is it likely to be covered by our insurance? We would be grateful for any help or advice you can give. AThe first thing is to confirm is whether it's a bees' nest or a wasps' nest. Wasps are more commonly found in attic spaces. Bees are less aggressive and generally considered highly beneficial to the environment. It is believed that some species are under threat. Unlike wasps they should not be killed and beehives should be left undisturbed whenever possible.  If you have to remove them, either because a family member is allergic to bees or they pose a risk to the occupants, then you should contact your local beekeeper but expect to pay for this service. All steps should be taken to avoid harming bees and the beekeeper will use a method of smoking, which calms the bees down, to remove and relocate the nest.

 Bermuda Supreme Court April WINDING UP - THE COMPANIES ACT, 1981 - BERMUDA INTERNATIONAL CONCILIATION AND ARBITRATION ACT, 1993 - ABILITY OF SECURED CREDITOR TO PETITION - STAY OF EXECUTION OF ENFORCEMENT ORDER In the Matter of LAEP Investments Ltd ("the Company") [2014] SC (Bda) 23 Com (1 April 2014) The Court was asked to consider three applications before the Court: (1) An amended petition to wind up; (2) A Summons of the Company to dismiss the petition and set aside the appointment of the Joint Provisional Liquidators ("JPLs"); and (3) A Summons of the Company to stay execution of a Court Order granting leave to the Petitioner to enforce an arbitral award against the Company in Brazil (the "Enforcement Order"). Winding Up Petition: The Judge considered the Company's arguments that the winding up was sought to subvert the judicial process in Brazil and that the debts were already fully secured in Brazil. The Court was not satisfied with the evidence on either point. It was noted that the fact that a creditor is secured did not prevent it bringing a winding up petition (Moor -v- Anglo-Italian Bank [1979] 10 Ch 681 applied). The Judge ordered the winding up of the Company.

 Australia: The assessment of damages for flagrant infringement of the Halal-certified Trade Mark under the new section 126(2) of the Trade Marks Act in Halal Certification Authority Pty Limited v Scadilone Pty Limited [2014] FCA 614
Mondaq Business Briefing, October 21, 2014 Tuesday

 The Halal Trade Mark is a seal used by the applicant to certify, for reward, those businesses that used halal practices in the preparation of goods and services in accordance with the Islamic faith. The Halal Trade Mark is registered in respect of Class 35: Personal and social services, and Class 42: scientific and technical services: issuing halal certifications to business and individuals for goods and services if religious and technical requirements are met. The applicant alleged that the three respondents had been using the Halal Trade Mark without its permission to indicate that kebab meat products used were halal. Perram J found that there was evidence of infringement since the kebabs, when sold under the halal certificate, were closely related services of providing halal certification for the purposes of Section 120(2) of the Trade Marks Act 1995 (TMA), namely they were closely related to the services in respect of which the Halal Trade Mark is registered.

 How the media helps perpetuate a high cost of living
Jpost.com (The Jerusalem Post online edition), October 20, 2014 Monday

 Reforming politicians earn little positive press to offset the costs of angering powerful interests. Last week’s uproar over the price of Milky puddings died down quickly once the myth that Israelis were flocking to Berlin was debunked, but the high cost of living remains unchanged. Although Israelis across the political spectrum regularly deem this issue one of their top concerns, successive governments have done little to address it. Various players share the blame for this failure, including politicians, big businesses, public-sector unions and the defense establishment. But one major culprit consistently escapes scrutiny – the media.

 Postinjury abdominal compartment syndrome: from recognition to prevention
The Lancet, October 18, 2014 - October 24, 2014

 This is the second in a Series of two papers about surgical trauma Introduction Postinjury abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) is a lethal complication of acute intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) in patients with trauma. ACS was recognised as early as 1890 by Heinricius,1 but its clinical significance only became apparent in the late 20th century when the lethal combination of pulmonary compromise and impaired renal function, due to increased intra-abdominal pressure (IAP), was recognised by paediatric surgeons closing omphaloceles.2,3 Concurrent development and improvements in survival of repair for abdominal aortic ruptures4 and damage control laparotomies5-8 increased prevalence and clinical relevance of ACS. Clinical research into the pathophysiology of IAH took place during the 19th and 20th centuries.1 Early animal studies defined the concept of IAP, examined the effects of respiration and diaphragm movements on pressure within the abdominal and thoracic cavities,1 and defined the catastrophic cumulative effects of shock and raised IAH on patients' whole body function.

 The systemic immune response to trauma: an overview of pathophysiology and treatment
The Lancet, October 18, 2014 - October 24, 2014

 This is the first in a Series of two papers about surgical trauma Introduction Immune response to traumatic injury The systemic response to severe injury involves interactions across the haemostatic, inflammatory, endocrine, and neurological systems, aggravating initial damage caused by hypoperfusion (shock) and reperfusion (figure 1). Endothelium activated by exposure to inflammatory cytokines becomes more porous, allowing mediators of tissue damage to gain access to the intercellular space. The systemic responses to major trauma are associated with a lowered ability to fight infection, leading to sepsis and further activation of the destructive inflammatory response. Inflammatory response to injury Severe injury is associated with the systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS).7 This response starts within 30 min of a major injury, and is an inflammatory response to blood loss and tissue damage rather than infection.

 The equal pay delusion
The Examiner (Washington, DC), October 17, 2014 Friday

 Voters are souring on the Democratic Party. Apparently, all it takes are six years of economic torpor; the disastrous debut of the biggest new federal program in two generations; record levels of federal debt; revelations of scandals and malfeasance at the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Internal Revenue Service, the Secret Service and the Justice Department; Russian revanchism on the march; a rampaging army of (literal) cutthroats gobbling up territory in the Middle East; and the feeble and patronizing government response to a modern plague. Truly, it says something about the reputation of the Democratic Party that even now, 50 percent of those responding to a CBS News poll said the Democrats are the party that "cares more about the needs and problems of people like" them. Only 34 percent chose the Republicans.

 Employment - Retaliation - Damages
Rhode Island Lawyers Weekly, October 16, 2014 Thursday

 Where the respondent Providence School Board has been found to have discriminated against the complainant with respect to the denial of four positions of Acting Assistant Principal in retaliation for filing charges of discrimination and opposing unlawful employment practices, the complainant should be awarded back pay plus the $400 cost of mediation. “The Respondent introduced evidence on the method for calculating the extra pay given to  Acting Assistant Principals. ... It also produced evidence on the data needed to determine what the Complainant would have been paid if he had been awarded the positions in question — the number of days worked by the individuals in the four positions, the Complainant's base pay and the salary for an Assistant Principal. … Using that data, the Commission concludes that the Complainant would have received approximately $2,850 (50 days x $57 per day) if he had been appointed to the position held by (Cynthia] Robles and $4,332 (76 days x $57 per day) if he had been appointed to the position held by (Paul] Rao. As the other two Acting Assistant Principal positions were filled in the same time period as the one filled by Mr. Rao, the Complainant could not have served in them simultaneously and the Commission does not award back pay for them.

 Insurance - G.L.c. 93A
Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly, October 15, 2014 Wednesday

 Where a plaintiff policyholder accepted reimbursement from the defendant insurance company for the expenses incurred in litigating an environmental dispute with a state agency, the plaintiff could still pursue a G.L.c. 93A remedy against the insurer. “The plaintiff's insurer refused to defend or to indemnify the plaintiff in connection with an environmental dispute involving the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). Several years later, the plaintiff, having by then funded both its own defense and the environmental remediation ordered, brought suit against the insurer, alleging breach of contract and seeking declaratory relief; on a motion for partial summary judgment, the plaintiff obtained declaratory relief establishing the insurer's duty to defend. The plaintiff then amended its complaint to assert a claim under G.L.c.  93A, §11 (§11), arising out of the insurer's failure to defend; the insurer did not avail itself of the statutory mechanism permitting a defendant to limit its liability to single damages by tendering with its answer a written offer of settlement. See G.  L. c.  93A, § 11, fifth par. Thereafter, and while reserving its rights as to its pending claims, the plaintiff accepted reimbursement from the insurer, with interest, for its expenses in litigating and resolving the DEP matter. It is the consequence of having done so that gives rise to this appeal.

 PUTNAM IN REVIEW
Charleston Gazette (West Virginia), October 15, 2014, Wednesday

 Airgas explosion trial set for 2015 The trial concerning two former Airgas USA employees suing the company and its plant manger over an explosion last year at its now-closed Putnam County facility has been set for October 2015. William Lee Parrigan, of Winfield, was first to file suit against the company in March. Hurricane resident Ronald Alan Forren later joined the lawsuit, which alleges Airgas and Black Betsy facility plant manager Charles William Boyles placed them in an "extremely unsafe working condition that led to serious injuries. Airgas and Boyles have admitted that Parrigan and Forren were injured in the explosion, but deny creating any unsafe working conditions and also deny "any deliberate or intentional misconduct on their part led to the workers' injuries. The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration investigated the explosion and cited Airgas for six violations, four of which were classified as "serious and carried a total of $19,000 in proposed fines. But OSHA has agreed to halve the amount of money Airgas owes -- in part by dismissing a serious citation with a $5,000 fine -- after the company contested.
 The truth about immigration
New Statesman, October 15, 2014

 In 2007, Gordon Brown, shortly after becoming prime minister, used his leader s speech at the Labour party conference in Bournemouth to pledge the creation of British jobs for British workers . The absurd remark was emblematic of Labour s confused approach to immigration, which continues into the present. The tensions in the party remain unresolved: one reason why Ed Miliband was so negligent in failing to mention immigration, as well as the deficit, in his conference speech in Manchester. After Labour came close to losing to the UK Independence Party in the Heywood and Middleton by-election, Jack Straw, Simon Danczuk and John Mann, three respected party figures, were among those to articulate concerns about Labour s approach to immigration. The subtext was that the party was too soft on the issue and did not understand the anxieties fuelling the Ukip insurgency.

 Plaintiff Lamont Pompey alleged that on June 29, 2012, while grilling food following a power outage in the Lincoln Mews Townhomes, he was approached by Sean Palla, who told him to stop grilling and to go inside of his townhome. Pompey declined Palla’s request and informed him of the Lincoln Mews Townhome rules and regulations, which allowed grilling as long as it was approximately 10 feet from the entrance of the resident’s townhome.   Palla ignored Pompey, but insisted that he cease grilling due to an alleged 11 p.m. curfew imposed by Lincoln Mews Townhomes on all residents.   After Pompey refused to go inside, Constance Calloway exited their townhome and approached the grill.

 Facts about World Standards
The Messenger, October 13, 2014 Monday

  World standards to ensure better quality in life and better living cover almost everyone and everything in the world, including roti, kapra, makaan and beyond. These standards for better living are applied on everyone and everything including all human beings and their health, all products and all services. World standards help people to avoid living a life of inferior quality or living below minimum acceptable standards. In simple words, with world standards people can have a better life but without world standards people are forced to live a worst life. Only one part of it all is food. It's said that you're what you eat: So be careful about what you eat. Food must be up to a minimum acceptable standard and hygienic to improve your health, and not be inferior to those standards or be unhygienic to deteriorate your health and weaken you mentally or physically. World standards are also applicable on all kinds of material and services people need and use in their everyday life, each moment of their entire living. World standards ensure safety and security of people with better products. Otherwise, for instance, if people use faulty material for their roof, it might collapse on their unsuspecting heads any time of day, or at night, while they're temporarily asleep. It might make their slumber permanent.

 Australia: Can the springboard principle be applied to restrain a former employee?
Mondaq Business Briefing, October 12, 2014 Sunday

 IN BRIEF Employers have struggled in the past to find ways of restraining a former employee from setting up in competition and from soliciting their clients and their goodwill in the absence of a dedicated restraint of trade covenant contained in the employee's contract of employment. However, a recent decision of the Federal Court of Australia in APT Technology Pty Ltd v Aladesaye [2014] FCA 966 (5 September 2014), seems to have come to the aid of employers in this situation, by determining that the "springboard principle" can apply to former employees in certain circumstances. THE SPRINGBOARD PRINCIPLE The springboard principle was considered in the United Kingdom in a case of Terrapin Limited v Builder's Supply Company (Hayes) Limited [1967] RPC 375. Briefly stated, in that case the defendant manufactured prefabricated portable buildings according to the design of the plaintiff. In order to manufacture these portable buildings, the defendants had received from the plaintiff: manufacturing details, specifications and technical information and know-how. After the contract ended the defendant started offering for sale, a prefabricated building which included many features of the plaintiff's original design, in competition with the product being offered by the plaintiff. The plaintiff sued.

Daily Trust (Abuja), October 12, 2014

 At such a time like this when many are dancing under tattered umbrellas and others are given brooms to sweep imaginary enemies against their principles, thereby compromising their regimented stance, we must console ourselves that nobody can quarrel with a nation whose time has come. This is the time for Nigeria! This is the time for Africa to put its best legs forward!! This is no time fore mediocre posturing. This is no time for emotional, tribal, clannish and religious filibustering. This is no time for celebration of corruption, idiocy, militocracy, dictatorship and one-step-forward and two-steps-backward political engineering! This is the time for the real transformation of our socio-political and economic landscape! This is the time to actualize the Nigerian dream.

 From Modi's 'Sauni Yojna' to Baba Da Dabha; it is 'Office Office' at MOEF
Tax India Online, October 10, 2014 Friday 6:30 AM EST

 By Naresh Minocha, Our Consulting Editor SHOULD a village dabha owner be required to seek Central Government approval to acquire a few square metres of forest land for creating a new access to his food outlet? Should his application not be cleared at the district level? Is it not good enough for the owner of Baba Da Dabha in a Punjab village to support his application with 10 documents. These include separate assurances to pay for compensatory afforestation (CA) and make additional payment for the forest's net present value (NPV). Should the nodal officer of the Ministry of Environment and Forest (MOEF) have returned his application with the objection - "geo reference map not enclosed; project site not visible on survey sheet"? Does MOEF expect a villager to submit geo reference digital data as mandated under its order issued in July 2011? The Union Minister for Environment and Forest, Prakash Javadekar, must ponder over these issues as more than 50% of the forest clearance applications filed since 15th July 2014 have been returned to applicants with one objection or the other? Some of the objections are friovlous.

 Cost-cutting, fatigue hurt workplace safety: NGO
TODAY (Singapore), October 9, 2014 Thursday

 SINGAPORE - Fatigued from a series of 24-hour shifts that were followed by a day of rest, construction worker Tao (not his real name) unclipped his harness to descend from scaffolding with fewer rungs than were needed as a result of his employer's cost-cutting measures. He could not find a comfortable footing and fell 3m, landing on his back last March.  The scaffolding at another injured worker's worksite did not even have a rung to clip his safety harness to and its 60cm planks were narrower than the normal 1m width. The worker said an unqualified colleague operating a forklift hit the scaffolding, causing him to fall 2m to the ground and lose consciousness last December. When the worker returned the next morning to take a photograph of the scaffolding, it had been reconstructed according to safety regulations overnight.

 Ejiofor Alike writes that the plan by Samsung Heavy Industries Nigeria Limited and Lagos Deep Offshore Logistics to commence integration of Floating Production Storage Offloading vessels in Nigeria will set a new record in the implementation of the Nigerian Oil and Gas Industry Content Development Act. Apparently excited by the huge success recorded in execution of certain categories of projects in the Nigerian oil and gas industry by Nigerians, under the implementation of the Nigerian Oil and Gas Industry Content Development (NOGICD) Act 2010, the federal government, in March 2012, unveiled plans to ensure that future integration of fabricated steel structures into Floating Production Storage Offloading (FPSO) vessels was done locally. FPSOs are floating vessels that store crude oil produced in both deep and shallow offshore and offload it into export tankers for shipment.
