Mines No Safer Despite 1 Billion In Fines Fe

first_img by NPR News Howard Berkes, Robert Benincasa 8.22.19 11:09am An audit of the federal system that fines mining companies for unsafe conditions found no evidence that more than $1 billion in mine safety penalties over 18 years deterred unsafe mining practices.The four-year long audit from the Office of Inspector General of the Labor Department says its analysis of Mine Safety and Health Administration accident and violations data “showed no correlation between penalties paid and the safety of mine operations.”The audit was prompted by a 2014 NPR investigation of thousands of mines and mining companies that did find such a connection. Specifically, NPR found that mines that persistently ignored their penalties had injury rates 50 percent higher than mines that paid their fines. In total, NPR examined the safety records of mines that had failed to pay nearly $70 million in penalties, some with delinquent fines that were decades old.The auditors instead reported data for mining companies, not individual mines, and in a statement to NPR acknowledged taking a different approach with their review.”We focused on mine operators as they are responsible for the safety of miners and are assigned the financial responsibility for penalties,” the OIG’s statement explained.The office did not respond to specific questions NPR submitted and declined a request for an interview.The audit doesn’t say whether the measures of safety and violations applied only after mines or mining companies failed to pay safety fines or while they continued to be delinquent. NPR’s analysis of delinquent fines and safety applied only to mines while they were delinquent.The auditors also measured safety by looking at raw numbers and averages of “serious accidents” and “serious violations,” which is not the primary safety metric used by MSHA. The agency instead typically uses “incident” or injury rate, which takes into account the number of injuries that occur in a mine during the hours worked.This shows that “penalties just aren’t high enough to deter bad behavior,” says Wes Addington, the executive director of the Appalachian Citizens Law Center in Whitesburg, Kentucky.Addington once conducted his own analysis of delinquent mine safety penalties and their impacts on safety.The audit shows that “violations are just a cost of doing business,” Addington adds.He also calls the audit “superficial” and “poorly designed” because it mixes coal mines with what are called metal and nonmetal mines. “Coal mining is one of the most dangerous occupations in the United States,” Addington says. Including other mines in the analysis “skews the data. They don’t have the injuries and violations coal mines have.”The auditors did recommend that MSHA not permit mining companies to operate new mines if they have outstanding penalties at existing operations.”Without holding mine operators accountable for their safety record or delinquency status prior to commencing operations at a new mine, mine operators have less of an incentive to prevent future safety hazards,” the audit says.MSHA says it does not have the legal authority to deny mine operators the ability to open new mines due to unpaid fines.The NPR investigation found that mining companies continued to operate multiple mines, and continued to put thousands of miners at risk, even after persistent failure to pay mine safety fines. In one case, the operators of the Kentucky Darby mine amassed nearly $3 million in safety fines after a deadly accident that killed five miners. That includes $500,000 in fines the owners of the mine failed to pay for safety failures that contributed to the tragedy.In that and many other cases, NPR found that MSHA failed to use some of its authority to force companies to pay and to seek closure of mines that were persistently delinquent.The auditors found that MSHA has used that authority more often since the NPR investigation in 2014, and noted more aggressive focus on delinquent and unsafe mines in both the Trump and Obama administrations.The audit said MSHA deserves credit for collecting the vast majority of mine safety fines – roughly 90 percent in the 18 years reviewed.But the auditors also recommended that MSHA develop ways to measure the effectiveness of penalties. MSHA says that’s difficult because fines are “one of many variables” used to make mines safe.MSHA has recently resisted public disclosure of mining companies that fail to pay penalties. NPR sued MSHA in federal court last year under the Freedom of Information Act after the agency failed to provide its current delinquent mines data. A settlement resulted in the release of that data, which showed that the nation’s top delinquent mine owners are companies owned by West Virginia Governor Jim Justice and his family.In a rare move in May, MSHA and the Justice Department sued the coal companies owned by the Justice family for failure to pay $4.7 million in unpaid mine safety fines.Copyright 2019 NPR.

Microsofts Accounting System

first_img Are you tracking your income and outgo in Microsoft Excel? Creating invoices with Word? Managing vendor, customer and employee lists in Outlook? If so, you’re an ideal candidate for the newest addition to Microsoft Office: Small Business Accounting 2006. After a couple of failed attempts, Microsoft has delivered a surprisingly well-appointed accounting program that’s a strategic component of Microsoft Office.Small Business Accounting is unlikely to make a dent in Intuit QuickBooks’ 80 percent-plus market share; nothing has in more than a decade. And this first version of Small Business Accounting would make an even poorer substitute for the other top entrepreneurial bookkeeper–Sage Software’s Peachtree Complete Accounting.But according to Microsoft, a very large share of entrepreneurial businesses is still wide-open to wooing. Its research shows that accounting programs are used by only a little more than half of all entrepreneurial businesses, with the rest using a patchwork of spreadsheets, contact managers, paper records and outside bookkeepers.Could it be that Peachtree and Quick-Books are in some way deficient? Certainly not. Both deliver 99 percent of the core accounting functionality needed by any small business. They differ mostly on the margins, the choice between them often turning on an entrepreneur’s preference for an implementation or reliance on a particular feature. For example, one entrepreneur I know uses FIFO (first in, first out) to cost his current inventory, but builds in a little cushion for his margins by using a Peachtree LIFO (last in, first out) report to tell him how much to pay for new, price-sensitive commodities. He couldn’t do that in QuickBooks or Small Business Accounting–and few small businesses need to. But many entrepreneurs have unique ways of using these all-purpose tools.That tendency could work in Microsoft’s favor because even the first incarnation of Small Business Accounting promises versatility. More than just an accounting program, it’s an integral part of the company’s grand vision of enterprisewide information management that will get reinforced with the year-end release of Office 12.With a familiar interface and a street price of $49 to $149, the stand-alone version of Small Business Accounting is an easy buy. But its true utility is only realized as part of Microsoft Office Small Business Management Edition 2006 (about $500 street), and as with any accounting program, its real cost can’t be measured in dollars, but in time either saved or lost.Nice DebutMicrosoft Small Business Accounting 2006 is a remarkably capable accounting system with perks like inventory, job costing, online banking and a robust data-sharing structure (see ” The Bottom Line “.) Many features are shallower than those in Peachtree or QuickBooks, but that’s to be expected with a new code base.Microsoft deftly mixes the features and conventions competitors have developed over years of trial and error with those borrowed from Office. For example, Small Business Accounting opens up to a home page where you’re reminded of things to do today–vendors to pay, debtors to nudge, products to order. A flowchart-and-tabs navigation method is mixed with an Outlook-like desktop, making it easy to visualize common processes–like the path from job quote to payment–or to hop among the main accounting modules.Allowing you to set access permission levels for five concurrent users, Small Business Accounting is a comfortable fit for companies with up to 25 employees (depending on transaction volumes). But it lacks an accountant’s review capability that would let you delegate some functions to an outside accountant.The program’s centerpiece is its ability to address a problem familiar to most of us: having to manually update the same information in several different Office components and other Windows programs. Small Business Accounting can synchronize its customer, vendor and employee databases with those in Outlook’s Business Contact Manager. You can maintain and share customer histories, track opportunities, and easily e-mail quotes, purchase orders and invoices. Small Business Accounting also seamlessly integrates with Word so you can create templates that put your company’s personal stamp on external communications and end-of-period financial statements.Small Business Accounting’s own financial reports are minimal, but it easily swaps records and lists with Excel, where you can what-if various business opportunities and do advanced budgeting, charting and sales forecasting. QuickBooks and Peachtree have similar links but aren’t quite as adroit.Microsoft’s Small Business Accounting offers many potentially time-saving capabilities, but only for those already committed–or willing to commit–to Outlook and other Office applications. From the overhead that SQL Server imposes to the use of Outlook as your company’s nerve center to the many other choices in productivity tools, with their ensuing update schedules and security issues, choosing Small Business Accounting has a lot of implications.If all you need is accounting, Peach-tree or QuickBooks will be simpler, better alternatives for the foreseeable future. But if you’re ready to sign on to Microsoft’s vision of end-to-end information management, Small Business Accounting 2006 could be a great leap forward. The Bottom Line Pros: A familiar interface and wizards ease the setup of your books, importing from Excel and QuickBooks, and data sharing with Microsoft Office components. A broad set of accounting tools includes inventory, job costing, an informative cash-flow forecaster, an audit trail for backtracking, and online connections to banking, bill paying and ADP payroll services.Cons: Many modules–inventory, for example–lack depth and flexibility, and SQL Server slows the program. There is no easy way to share limited accounting data with an outside accountant, and some Office components have proved insecure in the past.Mike Hogan is Entrepreneur’s technology editor. 5 min read This story appears in the March 2006 issue of Entrepreneur.

Nokia Revives the Brand With Launch of iPad Lookalike

first_img 2 min read Register Now » This story originally appeared on Reuters Finland’s Nokia launched a new brand-licensed tablet computer on Tuesday which is designed to rival Apple’s iPad Mini, just six months after the company sold its ailing phones and devices business to Microsoft for over $7 billion.Nokia, a name which was once synonymous with mobile phones until first Apple and then Samsung Electronics eclipsed the Finnish company with the advent of smart phones, said the manufacturing, distribution and sales of the new N1 tablet, will be handled under license by Taiwan’s Foxconn.The aluminum-cased N1, which runs on Google’s Android Lollipop operating software but features Nokia’s new Z Launcher intelligent home screen interface, is due to be in stores in China in the first quarter of next year for an estimated price of $249 before taxes, with sales to other markets to follow.Sebastian Nystrom, the head of products at Nokia’s Technologies unit, said the company was looking to follow up with more devices and will also look into eventually returning to the smartphones business by brand-licensing.”With the agreement with Microsoft, as is customary, we have this transition and we can’t do smartphones … We have a time limit, in 2016 we can again enter that business,” Nystrom told Reuters.”It would be crazy not to look at that opportunity. Of course we will look at it.”Microsoft last week dropped the Nokia name on its latest Lumia 535 smartphone, which runs on its Windows Phone 8 operating system, but still uses the brand for more basic phones.After the Microsoft sale Nokia was left with its core network equipment and services business plus its smaller HERE mapping and navigation unit and Nokia Technologies, which manages the licensing of its portfolio of patents and develops new products such as the N1 and the Z Launcher.Asked about rumors that Nokia was looking to re-enter the handset market, Chief Executive Rajeev Suri said last week he was looking into ways to bring the brand back into the consumer market through licensing deals.(Editing by Greg Mahlich) Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.

Be responsible at accident scenes during the holiday season

first_imgWebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite At this time of the year, our roads are exceptionally busy, which increases the risk of collisions. Added to this, more and more people are slowly driving past or stopping at accident scenes in order to snap a photo or take a video with their cell-phones. These actions are extremely dangerous. Not only do they create the risk of secondary collisions occurring, but they prevent emergency personnel from getting to the scene and impede the authorities in the performance of their functions. We should also not forget the heartbreaking emotional damage that can be inflicted upon the family of an injured or deceased accident victim when they learn of the injury or death through social media images and video clips. Let us respect the dignity of the injured and deceased by acting responsibly when it comes to accident scenes. Be safety-conscious while travelling and do not ‘rubber neck’. Allow the authorities room to do what they need to – lives are at stake.DID YOU KNOW?Click on the words highlighted in red to read more on this and related topics.If you are reading this on your cellphone and there are telephone numbers provided in the text, you can call these simply by clicking on them.To receive news links via WhatsApp.For the latest news, visit our webpage or follow us on Facebook and Twitter  why not join us there?last_img read more


Legal skirmishes cause rifts in Costa Ricas craft beer industry

first_imgRelated posts:VIDEO: The best of Costa Rica craft beer The Tico Times event gives inside look at — and taste of — local craft beer scene Costa Rica Craft Beer Festival gets bigger and better in 5th edition Costa Rican craft beers score big at international competition Though it may sound like a dream job for every beer lover, running a microbrewery in Costa Rica can sometimes be about as enjoyable as a day-long hangover.Gustavo Arroyo, the owner and sole employee of Bora Brewing Co., which was formerly known as Búho (“owl” in Spanish), knows this first hand: he recently ended a two-year legal battle with beverage giant Florida Ice & Farm (FIFCO) over the name of his company. FIFCO, besides bottling mainstream domestic beers like Imperial and Pilsen, owns Domingo 7, the line of specialty beers that the conglomerate launched in 2014 in response to the country’s craft beer movement.The craft beer industry worldwide is full of David and Goliath stories like this one. And in Costa Rica, legal issues, especially around trademarks, are already creating fissures in the nascent movement.Arroyo, a 32-year-old former homebrewer with sleeve tattoos etched into each arm, said he spent $6,000 in legal fees in an unsuccessful attempt to fend off Domingo 7 from the Búho name, which he said he was using first. The National Registry awarded the name to Domingo 7 in February, along with image rights to the owl that adorns the label of its amber bock.Attorney Paola Castro, who did not defend Arroyo but who addressed his case at a recent brand awareness workshop sponsored by the Costa Rica Craft Brewers Association, said Arroyo technically never registered his brand name, although Arroyo contends it was under study at the National Registry.“From my understanding, Gustavo’s brand was not yet registered before Florida Ice & Farm registered it,” Castro told The Tico Times in an email. “What Gustavo alluded to in the defense process was that he had prior use, but that is something that is very difficult to prove, and with the existing registry belonging to Florida Ice & Farm, it’s a difficult process that Gustavo, or any other person or business, has little probability of winning.”After losing the long legal process, Arroyo had to change his company’s entire image just over two years after starting his company. He said although he’s received a tremendous amount of support from consumers, he had a sentimental connection to the owl name and logo.“For Florida Ice & Farm, it’s just a name that they can market and use a pretty image to get people attracted to it,” Arroyo said. “For me, it meant something else because it was totally linked to the memories of my father growing up. … he always liked owls and had a bunch of owls collected in different forms. It’s something more personal.” Taps at Costa Rica’s Craft Brewing Company’s brewpub, La Planta. Lindsay Fendt/The Tico TimesRafael Cruces, the general manager of Domingo 7, said the company had all of its paperwork ready in 2014 before sending it to the parent company to finalize with the National Registry.“For any industry, what you have to do is make sure your brand is registered,” Cruces said. “There’s a lot of misinformation out there for young business owners starting their companies. Especially in the world of alcohol, there’s a ton of legal checks you need to fill.”Cruces said he wanted to avoid a long, drawn-out legal dispute with Arroyo, but that because the craft brewer was unresponsive to phone calls and emails, he had to go through the courts.“We invited him to talk on various occasions,” Cruces said. “He never wanted to talk until we sent a final warning that the brand was property of Domingo 7. It was a shame because we didn’t have any intention of doing it like that.”Arroyo said when he did finally talk to representatives of Domingo 7 during the dispute, they invited him to the beach, but he declined. (Cruces remembers inviting Arroyo somewhere but couldn’t remember if it was the beach.)“It was like they wanted to take me out to party and forget about the problem, but I wasn’t going to do that,” Arroyo said. “They only invited me out to drink so that I could forget this was an issue and it wouldn’t become anything bigger. But I had to keep fighting for what belonged to me.”He said that during a second phone conversation with Domingo 7 employees, he was offered a deal in which he would be allowed to use the owl brand name and logo for one year, then transfer it to Florida Ice & Farm at the end of the year.“I said ‘no’ because I didn’t want to be tied to their company at all,” Arroyo said. See also: Costa Rica’s craft beer scene strives to balance growth, quality control Glasses lined up at the 6th annual Costa Rica Craft Beer Festival on March 13, 2016. Lindsay Fendt/The Tico TimesArroyo’s case highlights a persistent drag on Costa Rica’s relatively young craft beer scene. Whether it’s fighting against mega-company Florida Ice & Farm, the government, or each other, many of Costa Rica’s small brewers seem to get baptized early on into the industry’s realm of potential legal disputes.Costa Rica’s Craft Brewing Company, which opened in 2010, is widely considered the first of the country’s current wave of craft brewers. Its founders, including U.S.-born Peter Gilman, were able to carve out a niche that has turned craft brewing into a popular industry for young entrepreneurs here.Gilman’s attorney Juan Carlos Retana said that when Gilman started, he had a nightmare of a time trying to define the industry in the eyes of the state.“It was extremely hard because the government literally didn’t know what it was or how to classify it,” Retana told The Tico Times.Since those initial hiccups, Costa Rica’s Craft Brewing Co. has continued to face nagging legal problems, including anonymous complaints channeled through the Health Ministry and Culture Ministry.Last year, the First Circuit Court ruled in favor of the company in a complaint that, in part, argued that the logo for the company’s popular Segua red ale, which depicts a half-woman, half-horse figure stemming from Costa Rican folklore, was inappropriate. Costa Rican law prohibits advertising for alcoholic drinks that uses “famous people or those with special abilities” or national symbols to encourage drinking. Christopher Derrick, the brewmaster at Costa Rica’s Craft Brewing Company, fills kegs at the company’s plant near Ciudad Colón. Lindsay Fendt/The Tico TimesRetana said none of the anonymous complaints that Costa Rica’s Craft Brewing Co. received could be traced back to their origin.Ignacio Castro, the general manager of Treintaycinco, said he’s also received several anonymous complaints against his company, including one alleging that he was spiking his beers with illicit drugs. He said Judicial Investigation Police showed up at his small brewery to inspect it but left soon after when they realized the complaint was frivolous.Castro said that for law-abiding companies, the anonymous complaints represent an annoyance more than anything and that any potential legal disputes can almost always be avoided among honest brewers.Castro criticized Domingo 7’s case against Arroyo over the Búho name. “We believe that among beer makers, you don’t do that,” he said, referring to the company’s ultimate reliance on lawyers to settle the conflict. “We can always resolve things as a community,” Castro said.This idea of unwritten rules among craft brewers in Costa Rica’s small but growing beer landscape was something the 39-year-old from Venezuela learned early on. When starting his brewery five years ago, Castro intended to name the company “Malacrianza,” after the legendary Costa Rican bull.However, Gilman had supposedly already registered the trademark for his strong scotch ale. Instead of waging a legal war, Castro said he eventually let it go.“We’ve had some ups and downs with Costa Rica’s Craft Brewing Co., sure,” Castro admitted. “But our problem was solved without ever having to go to court. At the end of the day, we changed the company name and that was that.”Conflicts continue to pop up between brewers. Adolfo Marín, the co-owner of Stiefel Pub and Cervecería Primate, told The Tico Times on Tuesday that he planned to hand a cease and desist letter to the Costa Rica Beer Factory for naming its new apple bock “San José,” which happens to be the name of Marín’s award-winning IPA.Though Marín said it’s impossible to register “San José” as a brand name with the National Registry because of its potential for prolific use among different industries, he said the craft beer industry had unwritten rules on copying names.“I find it super unethical and really think this could destroy these core ideals that the craft beer movement should be about,” he said.Costa Rica Beer Factory owner Jaime Zuluaga said he had never heard of Marín’s San José IPA and, as of Tuesday, had yet to hear from anyone about the possible name conflict. Marín said he has plans to bottle San José IPA in November, but said a possible confusion of products could delay that process.Potential product confusion is a major issue on the business side, where negative feedback can sink a young company. In that sense, Arroyo of Búho-turned-Bora Brewing Co., takes some small comfort in leaving the owl behind.“It’s maybe even better because before when it was Búho, the brands were getting confused a lot,” Arroyo said, referring to the cell phone app Untappd, which lets users rate and review beers.“Sometimes people would give terrible reviews, and it wasn’t even my beer.”Correction: An earlier version of this story stated that Judicial Investigation Police had inspected the Treintaycinco brewery “bottle by bottle” to make sure no drugs were present. The brewery’s general manager Ignacio Castro later clarified that police did show up, but didn’t actually carry out an inspection. We regret the error. Facebook Commentslast_img read more
