The World According to… Lynn Forester de Rothschild « Anti Oligarch
A corporate lawyer and telecommunications entrepreneur, the sparkly blond ex-wife of former New York politician Andrew Stein had made more than $100 million from the sale of cleverly acquired wireless broadband licenses. She was also sexy, charming, and dazzlingly well connected. Two years later, after the smitten Sir Evelyn divorced his second wife, Victoria Schott, the mother of his three children, Forester became the third Lady Rothschild. After marrying in November 2000 at a London synagogue, they honeymooned at the White House, guests of Lynn’s good friends Bill and Hillary Clinton. Today the New Jersey-born ... market research, surveys and trends
“We tried to save the family farm; now the family farm is saving ...
In celebration of its 25th year, Farm Aid, the longest running concert-for-a-cause, has published Rebuilding America’s Economy with Family-Farm Centered Food Systems.  The report takes one of the more sensitive topics in the American psyche today, the economy, and convincingly demonstrates the bounty of opportunity that family farmers can bring to local and regional communities. Starting with a rally cry from Farm Aid’s celebrity board, originally drafted in a letter to Congress in September of 2008 in a call to recognize the potential of family farmers to revive the collapsing U.S. economy, Rebuilding America’s Economy paints a ... market research, surveys and trends

What is the public guardian's office?
Illinois is the only state in the country with a two-tiered public guardian system based on income level, said John Wank, past president of the National Guardianship Association. Policies and practices are fairly consistent for people who have less than $25,000 in assets, because they are all handled by the state agency. County guardians, however, have a wide degree of latitude, which has spurred some controversy about how cases are handled. County guardians are appointed by the governor and paid from fees they bill to each ward's estate. Often the county guardian is a lawyer, but that is not a requirement, except in Cook ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Open Data in Agriculture and Why It Matters
The farmer usually knows best -- for his or her land, crop, livestock, and profitability, among other things. As a girl on a Minnesota farm in the '80s and '90s, I was in awe of my grandfather's ability to know just what his beef cattle needed -- more water, richer pasture, better nutrients -- and to have a crop rotation schedule seemingly in his head. It was as though my Granddad could feel his way through the unpredictability of weather, supply and demand, and price fluctuations to make the optimal decisions for his operation. A couple of years ago I was with him on his farm when the cows were getting checked ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

ERS/USDA Briefing Room - Farm and Commodity Policy: What Is Meant ...
When commodity program payments are tied to current production or net returns, they can introduce market distortions by influencing planting decisions, overall production, and market prices. In contrast to such "coupled" programs, benefits from "decoupled" programs do not depend on the farmer's production choices, output levels, or market conditions. By severing the link between payments and production decisions, decoupled payments provide a way to support farm incomes that is less distorting to commodity markets. Under the 1996 , 2002 , and 2008 Farm Acts, producers of selected field crops could qualify ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
Energy agriculture - farmer investment decisions - Don Hofstrand ...
If I start a value-added agricultural business, will farmers invest in it?  This is the uncertainty faced by many farmer entrepreneurs attempting to fund a value-added business. A long-time consultant friend of mine told me, “I can find business opportunities for farmers, but I can’t anticipate if they will invest the funds needed to capitalize the business.” To shed light on this topic, the Ag Marketing Resource Center funded a study to survey farmers about their investment decisions. The Iowa Farm Business Association cooperated with us to randomly survey their farmer members. During the spring ...
The day in the life of a farmer? - Yahoo! Answers
I'm a small farmer on a permaculture farm. I raise meat rabbits, and meat goats, to sell to customers. We also raise alfalfa to feed the animals, and rapeseed to make biofuel to run our trucks and tractors. So how about a day in my life in February. I live in Idaho, high mountain desert, at 4700+ feet elivation. In February the land here is hard as concrete, and temperatures can dip to NEGATIVE 60 degrees (F) with the wind chill. So I shouldn't have much to do, with the land being frozen, right? Start of day: Midnight...get up, don 5 layers of clothing to avoid frostbite that can happen in just 10 minutes ...
