SNAP program fails to boost consumption of healthy foods

first_img Read Full Story The federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) has failed to boost the nutritional value of food purchased and consumed by recipients or to improve food security (ensuring participants have food to meet household needs), according to a new study by Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) researchers. New policies, programs, and nutrition education initiatives are needed to encourage SNAP participants to buy more fruits, vegetables, and other healthier choices instead of choosing less-healthy options such as sugar sweetened beverages, sweets, and highly processed grains, to improve their health and well-being.The study was published online in the November 18, 2013, Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior and will appear in the June/July 2014 print edition.Formerly known as the Food Stamp program, SNAP is designed to provide financial support to low-income people so they can purchase healthier foods. The program costs U.S. taxpayer $80 billion annually and, in 2012, served nearly 45 million people. The benefits can be used to purchase all foods, except alcohol, supplements, and prepared warm foods.last_img read more

Notices: Comments sought on court records recommendations

first_imgNotices: Comments sought on court records recommendations Comments sought on court records recommendations The Judicial Management Council of Florida has submitted its Report and Recommendations on Privacy and Electronic Access to Court Records with the Florida Supreme Court.The court invites all interested persons to comment on the council’s report and recommendations. The introduction of the report and the council’s recommendations are reproduced below. The full report and recommendations are available on the Supreme Court press page of the court’s website at An original and seven copies of all comments must be filed with the court on or before May 15, with a certificate of service verifying that a copy has been served on the chair of the Judicial Management Council, Justice Major B. Harding, The Florida Supreme Court, 500 South Duval Street, Tallahassee 32399-1925, as well as a separate request for oral argument if the person filing the comment wishes to participate in oral argument which will be scheduled in this case on June 5. IN THE SUPREME COURT OF FLORIDA IN RE: REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE JUDICIAL MANAGEMENT COUNCIL OF FLORIDA ON PRIVACY AND ELECTRONIC ACCESS TO COURT RECORDS, CASE NO. SC02-659. I. Introduction: Information and Privacy in the Digital Age The emergence of electronic information management technology and the Internet are causing widespread transformations in American society. New ways of communicating and sharing information are changing the way people interact with cultural, economic, and governmental institutions. Such changes do not always occur smoothly, and difficult issues have arisen. Among the most challenging of these issues is that of personal privacy. The balance between the free flow of information and the protection of personal privacy has been altered; institutions and individuals are now grappling with how a new balance should be struck.The digital storage and transfer of information changes how information can be manipulated and retrieved. Previously obscure information can be located quickly for essentially no cost, as well as copied, transmitted and analyzed. This expanded capacity creates the ability to use information in ways that were previously impossible or impractical. Personal information – from shopping preferences to personal finances to digital photographs – can be handled in bulk and used for commercial purposes. Information can be exploited for criminal or voyeuristic purposes more easily. These and other issues raise deep concerns about the use of information for purposes other than those for which the information was initially provided. “People’s hair would stand on end,” says Michigan Attorney General Jennifer Granholm, “if they realized how much information about themselves is being sold.” 1There is a particular concern where the entity that gathers or transmits information is a government entity. Because citizens often do not have a meaningful opportunity to refuse to provide information needed for governmental purposes, they feel that government is behaving intrusively when that information is used for purposes other than those for which the information was initially provided. People have a strong aversion to the release of personal information by the government. 2Perhaps no part of government gathers a range of information that is as broad or as intimate as that gathered by courts. The sensitive nature of information in court files must be carefully considered as Florida contemplates electronic access to court records. In discussing policy in this area, four overarching points must be understood:• Court files contain deeply personal and intimate data about citizens – information about every conceivable aspect of human existence can and often does enter into court records. • Court records are public records, with some exceptions – anyone can come to the courthouse and read or copy most court documents. • Emerging technology has created the capacity to make images of court records available electronically – court documents would be accessible anytime, anyplace, by anyone. • There are practical and technical challenges in identifying and protecting information that is not intended for disclosure – information that is confidential or exempt from disclosure may be inadvertently made available though electronic access.Electronic access holds great promise for the courts in terms of improved access and efficiency. But adaptation to new ways of communicating requires a period of transition, during which older practices, customs and expectations are transformed to accommodate the new technology. 3 F lorida’s courts have just begun such a period of transition.The judicial branch of Florida should move thoughtfully and deliberately forward in developing policies that achieve the benefits of electronic access. But such access must be implemented in a manner that is respectful of people’s privacy and does not undermine the ability of the courts to fairly administer justice. Until policies are developed that appropriately balance privacy with access, and which support the core mission of the courts to do justice, unrestricted electronic access to court records should not be available. II. Recommendations The Judicial Management Council sought to address three questions in its preliminary inquiry into the issue of electronic access to court records. As expressed by the chair, 4 t hese are: 1. Does the Supreme Court have a role in formulating statewide policies on access to court records, or does responsibility for policy in this area rest elsewhere?2. If the Court does have a responsibility to develop statewide policies, what steps should be taken to ensure that such policies are developed and implemented?3. If statewide policies are to be developed, should there be a moratorium on electronic access to certain court records until such policies are developed and implemented?Below are recommendations in the form of answers to these three questions, and a fourth recommendation supporting a rule change that defines relevant terms:1. Does the Supreme Court have a role in formulating statewide policies on access to court records, or does responsibility for policy in this area rest elsewhere?The Supreme Court has broad responsibility under article V, section 2, of the Florida Constitution for the administrative supervision of all courts, including setting policies regarding court records. The Court has said:We conclude that the clerks of the circuit courts, when acting under the authority of their article V powers concerning judicial records and other matters relating to the administrative operation of the courts, are an arm of the judicial branch and are subject to the oversight and control of the Supreme Court of Florida, rather than the legislative branch. 5Emerging technologies, including electronic access, hold great promise for advances in the efficiency, effectiveness and openness of the courts. The Supreme Court must ensure, however, that in the management of court records, information protected by statute or court rules remains secure from improper disclosure. Furthermore, the Court must carefully consider other potential impacts of electronic access: public trust and confidence in the courts must not be undermined; citizens’ privacy must be respected; and access and privacy policies must be consistently applied in all parts of the state. For these reasons, the Supreme Court should develop comprehensive policies that set out guidelines on access to court records.2. If the Court does have a responsibility to develop statewide policies, what steps should be taken to ensure that such policies are developed and implemented?The electronic availability of court records implicates important values and has specific and substantial affects on a number of constituencies. Creating and implementing appropriate policies in this area will be a complex and ongoing task, requiring a search for consensus on difficult issues, and a sustained commitment. The experiences of fellow states and the federal judiciary suggest that the development of policy in this area should not occur without broad participation by citizens and practitioners as well as representatives of affected constituencies.The Judicial Management Council should be directed to oversee development of policy recommendations in this area. The Judicial Management Council is an appropriate body to undertake this task because of its composition and mandate to advise the Supreme Court “on issues related to the efficient and effective administration of justice that have statewide impact, affect multiple levels of the court system, or affect multiple constituencies in the court and justice community.” 6The Council should create a committee for purposes of addressing this issue. Several members of the Council should serve on this committee, including Council representatives of the Florida Association of Court Clerks, The Florida Bar, the Governor’s legal office, both houses of the Legislature, the Florida Council of 100, and judges from the appellate, circuit, and county benches. In addition, the committee should include representatives of: a privacy advocacy organization, a media advocacy organization, law enforcement, appellate court clerks, trial court administration, court committees with responsibility for technology, case management, and performance accountability, and any other constituency whose participation would assist the committee.Following a policy development process, with ample opportunity for public input, the Judicial Management Council should advance specific substantive recommendations to the Supreme Court, including proposed rules of court.3. If statewide policies are to be developed, should there be a moratorium on electronic access to certain court records until such policies are developed and implemented?A moratorium should be imposed. While increased electronic access to court records offers the promise of significant improvement in the efficiency and effectiveness of the courts, as well as improved access and public oversight, substantial challenges are presented which must be explored before electronic access to images of court records is permitted. In the absence of statewide policy guidance, there is a substantial risk that information in court records that is confidential or exempt from disclosure will be released, or that information that is not confidential or exempt from disclosure will be wrongfully withheld. Until these challenges and others are addressed, court records should not be available electronically to the public.The Chief Justice should therefore issue an administrative order directing the clerks of the circuit courts to refrain from providing electronic access to images of court records to the public until further notice. The restriction should apply to images only; indexes of images as well as docket and case information can be made available. Court records which are official records should not be covered by the restriction.4. Additional recommendation.The Supreme Court Workgroup on Public Records has petitioned the Florida Supreme Court to amend court rules to adopt definitions for the terms “records of the judicial branch,” “court records” and “administrative records” found in Florida Rules of Judicial Administration 2.051 and 2.075. 7 T hese definitions should be adopted. 1 Tracking the web of data you weave, Dana Hawkins, US News and World Report Online, October 2, 2000. 2 In 1999, Florida law was amended to allow the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles to provide driver’s license photos in digital form, and other identifying information such as address, physical description, and facsimile of a signature, to a company which would in turn incorporate the photos and information into an identification system for retailers to consult before accepting checks and credit cards. The intention was to reduce identity theft and credit card fraud. House Majority Leader Tom Feeney, who had backed the law, was surprised by the reaction of citizens when they learned of the plan: “People felt violated,” he said, “. . . they reacted viscerally to the idea that the government was transferring personal information without their approval.” The law was repealed.

Interesting research: What do tourists do on their first day on vacation?

first_imgThe first 24 hours are crucial for a holiday because almost half of the passengers (46%) who participated in the global survey believe that the first day determines the mood of the whole holiday, while one quarter of Croatian passengers (28%) claim that the first hours can decide travel successful or not., a world leader in connecting travelers to the most amazing accommodations, conducted a survey on a sample of 18.000 travelers from 25 countries around the world to investigate what really happens in the first 24 hours of vacation.The first 24 hours are crucial for a holiday because almost half of the passengers (46%) who participated in the global survey of, believe that the first day determines the mood of the whole holiday, while a quarter of passengers from Croatia (28%) claim that the first hours I can decide if the whole trip is successful or not.Interesting data, isn’t it? And that is why being a real host is extremely important, both for the guests and for you, whether it is a family accommodation or a hotel. How do you greet guests? Did you prepare a welcome drink and some indigenous snack for them? Yet they traveled for hours to reach you.What do tourists do on their first day on vacation? Respondents’ answers to the question about the most important activities on the first day of vacation evoke an interesting picture of the 21st century traveler. Traditional elements such as unpacking (68%), inspecting accommodation (60%) and planning activities for the next day (53%) took the first three places of the global survey respondents. Respondents from Croatia consider going to coffee, beer or a glass of wine (68%), unpacking (61%) and taking a nap in the afternoon (55%) to be the most important activities on the first day of vacation.Global research also shows how important the role of technology is in our leisure activities compared to before:perfect photo for social networks (27%, and even 37% among respondents aged 18 to 34, among respondents from Croatia 21%) Do you have Wifi? reading online reviews for restaurants (26%, among respondents from Croatia 14%)meeting new people / trying to make new friends (24%)language learning (16%)ordering room service (15%)listening to holiday playlists (13%)business email verification (10%, also 10% for Croatian respondents) Also, in the first 24 hours of vacation, activities involving accommodation ranked high on the passenger priority list.

Yogyakartan charities report police intimidation, monitoring during COVID-19 relief efforts

first_imgAs citizens help low-income community members weather the COVID-19 outbreak, several civil society groups in Yogyakarta have reported police intimidation and excessive monitoring during their relief efforts.A group called Jogja Food Solidarity (SPJ) said the police had been monitoring their distribution of food, facemasks, health supplements and hand sanitizer to low-income informal workers in Yogyakarta.SPJ has opened 11 public kitchens in the city, including on Jl. Ngadiwinatan near Ngayogyakarta Hadiningrat Palace, where volunteers gather to provide free food and other necessities for pedicab drivers, street vendors and sex workers, among others. Ita Fatia Nadia, one of SPJ’s founders, said two police officers had come to their charity event on Jl. Ngadiwinatan last Thursday. “They asked us who initiated the event, who its donors were and where we were distributing the rice boxes. They also took photos of us,” she told The Jakarta Post on Tuesday.Ita said activists working at the kitchens did not answer the police officers. The officers soon left the location.However, one of the officers, identified as Parto, returned to the charity event two days later and asked the same questions. “He took pictures of me without my permission. I replied that it violated my rights,” said Ita.She later found out that the officer had not brought a letter of assignment. Ita asserted that no regulation required them to report charity events to the police during the COVID-19 outbreak. Four other police officers came to an SPJ public kitchen in the Ambarketawang Permai housing complex in Gamping, Sleman, on Friday to disperse the volunteers.“They initially thought the event would constitute a mass gathering. After we told them about the charity event, they understood,” said M. Taufiq Firdaus, a volunteer at the kitchen.SPJ was not the only group in Yogyakarta whose charity events were raided by authorities. On Saturday, the police dispersed a meeting to evaluate a charity program held by activists from the Yogyakarta chapter of the Indonesian Forum for the Environment (Walhi Yogyakarta) in Kotagede.The police argued that the activists had violated a mayoral decree that restricted residents from partaking in mass gatherings during the COVID-19 outbreak. The activists said the meeting had followed prescribed protocols.After negotiating, the Walhi activists were allowed to continue the meeting until 10 p.m. However, at about 8:55, police officers – now accompanied by military personnel and dozens of residents – arrived at the Walhi office to disperse the meeting.”Authorities should stop repressive actions against civil society’s good intentions in the name of COVID-19 prevention,” said Himawan Kurniadi of Walhi Yogyakarta.SPJ’s Ita said she wrote an open letter to President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo on Monday, demanding the President stop repressing such acts of solidarity during the COVID-19 outbreak.Ngampilan Police chief Adj. Comr. Hendro Wahyono, whose jurisdiction covers the location of SPJ’s public kitchens, dismissed the allegations of repression, saying the officers had taken preventive measures to anticipate unwanted occurrences.”In the name of God, we didn’t intimidate anyone. They could have actually asked for our help in distributing aid to society,” Hendro said.Kotagede Police chief Comr. Dwi Tavianto denied that authorities dismissed the meeting at Walhi’s Yogyakarta office. “Residents reported that there was a social gathering at the location. We came to respond to the report.”Yogyakarta has imposed a state of emergency from March 20 to May 29 in an effort to contain the COVID-19 outbreak in the province. As of Wednesday, there were 75 confirmed cases, seven deaths and 75 recoveries in the province. (trn)Topics :last_img read more

SC orders Palace to comment on anti-terror law petitions

first_imgSuspected persons can be detained for 14 days without a warrant of arrest with an allowable 10-day extension. A 60-day surveillance on suspected terrorists can also be conducted by the police or the military, with an allowable 30-day extension./PN “Sapat-sapat po ang remedyo, nandiyan na po iyan bagamat may bagong batas, lahat po iyang mga writs na ginawa po ng ating Korte Suprema at nasa ating Saligang Batas ay patuloy pa rin pong magagamit,” he added. MANILA – The Supreme Court has ordered respondents – in this case, the Malacanang Palace – to submit a comment on the petitions questioning the constitutionality of the newly-signed Anti-Terrorism Law. “Siguro, I will phrase it differently. Terrorists, beware of the anti-terror law. Iyong mga hindi naman po mga terorista, huwag po kayong mag-alala, sapat-sapat po ang mga safeguards sa batas mismo at sa ating umiiral na rules of court para pangalagaan po ang karapatan ng kalayaan at karapatang mabuhay,” Roque said. Meanwhile, Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said the newly-signed anti-terrorism law was created to curb the terrorists and it does not include those who were criticizing the government. Under the law, persons who shall threaten to commit terrorism, and those who will propose any terroristic acts or incite others to commit terrorism shall suffer imprisonment of 12 years. As of Tuesday afternoon, there were four petitions filed before the Supreme Court against the Anti-Terrorism Law. The High Court justices have decided to consolidate the said petitions. “Kapag sinabi po ng leader ng Abu Sayyaf, pugutan ng ulo ang mga Kristiyano, iyan po ay ehemplo ng inciting to terrorism,” he added. There should have “clear and present danger” before a person can be arrested and detained for inciting terrorism, according to Roque. Roque said not all remarks are actionable because jurisprudence on free speech should also be applied and if the threats were made by an individual with no involvement with any terrorist group, there would be no clear and present danger to deter. During its en banc session, the High Court justices tasked Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea to answer the temporary restraining order of the petitioners to stop the implementation of the measure. “Hindi naman po lahat ng salita ay actionable, kinakailangan ang nagsasalita ay may kapangyarihan na bigyan ng riyalidad iyong kaniyang sinasabi ‘no,” the Palace spokesperson said. Dean Mel Sta. Maria of the Far Eastern University on Monday, July 6, 2020 leads the filing of yet another petition against the controversial Anti-Terrorism Act of 2020 before the Supreme Court. Joined by six other FEU professors, Sta. Maria is asking the high court to issue a temporary restraining order preventing the implementation of several provisions of the controversial new law.
