Premier of Australia’s Victoria defends hard COVID-19 lockdown

first_imgThe premier of Australia’s second-most populous state, Victoria, defended on Sunday his decision to put nine public housing towers in a complete lockdown as coronavirus cases continue to rise in Melbourne’s suburbs.The state recorded 74 cases new cases on Sunday, after Saturday’s 108 cases prompted Premier Daniel Andrews to order about 3,000 people not to leave their homes for at least five days and to place police to guard the buildings.”This is not going to be a pleasant experience for those residents, but I have a message for those residents: this is not about punishment but protection,” Andrews said in a televised conference. Topics : Promising two weeks of free rent and hardship payments to the residents, Andrews said public health workers would test every resident of the buildings, except those who have previously tested positive.The communal nature of the facilities, which house people on low incomes, has “genuinely explosive potential for the spread of the virus,” said Victoria’s Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton. In addition to the complete lockdown orders, more than 30 Melbourne suburbs are also under strict social-distancing orders, but people there can leave their houses to go to work, school or to buy groceries.Australia’s most populous state, New South Wales, reported 14 new coronavirus cases on Sunday, all returning travellers from overseas.Overall, Australia has weathered the coronavirus pandemic better than most other nations, with just over 8,400 cases and 104 deaths so far, but the recent spike in Victoria is being closely watched by the rest of the country, which has moved to ease restrictions.last_img read more

ODA announces 2019 funding for local Agricultural Easement Purchase Program

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The Ohio Department of Agriculture announced that eight land trusts, four counties and 15 Soil and Water Conservation Districts will receive funding to help preserve farmland across the state. These organizations will receive allocations from the Clean Ohio Fund to select, close and monitor easements under the Local Agricultural Easement Purchase Program (LAEPP).LAEPP sponsor organizations will accept applications from Ohio landowners interested in selling an agricultural easement on their farms. A total of nearly $8.5 million will be made available in this funding round. Local sponsors have been certified to accept applications in 34 counties. Interested landowners should contact the certified local sponsor in their county for application details.The program allows landowners to voluntarily sell easements on their farms to the state of Ohio. The easement requires the farm remain permanently in agriculture production. Selected farms must be 40 acres or more, actively engaged in farming, participate in the Current Agricultural Use Valuation program, demonstrate good stewardship of the land, have the support of their local government and not lay directly in the path of development. Landowners may use the proceeds of the easement in any way they wish, but most reinvest it in their farm operations.Funding for the program is derived from the Clean Ohio Conservation Fund, approved by voters in 2008. When combined with easements from all programs, 449 family farms in 59 counties have collectively preserved more than 73,500 acres in agricultural production.

23 days agoBournemouth boss Howe plans lesson for booking-prone Jefferson Lerma

first_imgAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Bournemouth boss Howe plans lesson for booking-prone Jefferson Lermaby Freddie Taylor23 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveBournemouth boss Eddie Howe insists he will teach Jefferson Lerma to avoid “needless bookings”.The Colombian grabbed his fourth booking out of seven Premier League games in Saturday’s draw with West Ham United.He told the Daily Echo: “Saturday’s (foul) he probably didn’t need to do. I think the majority of his tackles I’m with him on the pitch and he might be a split second late and it’s a yellow card. That’s the way he plays.”You wouldn’t want him to change that competitive style. Obviously we don’t want to lose him to suspensions and it would be a big blow if we did lose him.”It’s the needless ones (bookings). It’s the ones at the end of the game that he’ll probably look back at and think ‘I didn’t need to do that’. They’re the ones that you want to try and eradicate from his game.”Howe added: “It was well-documented, Harry Arter and our relationship with Harry and how many yellow cards he picked up. But you wouldn’t want to change Harry’s instincts and the way that he played because he wouldn’t be the player that made him what he was.”It’s the same with Jeff. That’s why we signed him. You don’t want to take that away, a lot of the attributes that he shows but it’s trying to educate him and show him maybe a different way at times will be key – talk to him and show him some things.”We want to keep him on the pitch for as long as we can.” last_img read more
