Each alert level will be subject to a specific set of restrictions, with those ranked as ‘very high’ facing the toughest of these restrictions. What are the new tiers?Tier 1Tier 1 the ‘medium’ alert level. The majority of the country is in tier 1. Areas under this tier will be subject to national measures, including:A ban on gatherings of more than 6 people A 10pm curfew for businesses like bars, pubs and restaurantsTier 2Tier 2 is the ‘high’ alert level. It covers areas with higher rates of infections but not enough to warrant placement in the ‘very high’ alert level. The restrictions here will include those in tier 1 plus others such as:No mixing of households in any indoor setting, whether at home or in a public place, unless within a support bubbleNo socialising of more than six people in outdoor settings, including private gardensTravel reductions, meaning people should aim to reduce the number of journeys they make as much as possibleThe most recent areas to move into tier 2 lockdown are London, York and Essex. Other major cities already in tier 2 include Manchester, Leeds, Bradford, Doncaster, Sheffield, Newcastle, Birmingham, Leicester and Nottingham City. Tier 3 Tier 3 is the ‘very high’ alert level. it covers areas with the highest rates of infection. The restrictions here include:No mixing of households indoors or in private or pub gardens (and the rule of six applies in public spaces like parks) All bars and pubs must close unless they also operate as a restaurantPeople should try as much as possible not to travel either in or out of tier 3 areasThe Liverpool City Region (Liverpool, Halton, Knowsley, Sefton, St Helens and Wirral) and parts of Lancashire (Blackpool, Blackburn with Darwen and Burnley) are the only regions currently under tier 3 lockdown. Greater Manchester and South Yorkshire, which are currently in tier 2, will move to tier 3 on Friday 23 October and Saturday 24 October, respectively.What do the new tier 2 restrictions mean for small businesses?For now, most small businesses (other than those that remain closed by law such as nightclubs and adult entertainment venues) can continue to operate in tier 2 as long as they do so in a Covid-secure manner.That means that if you have a restaurant, barbershop, saloon, gym, etc., you can carry on with business.Businesses selling food for consumption off the premises can continue doing so after the curfew as long as this is via a delivery, click-and-collect or drive-thru service.Unfortunately, while businesses might remain open, the fact that people from multiple households cannot mix in venues such as restaurants, bars and pubs means that most are likely to be serving fewer customers than usual.This has led some trade bodies to describe tier 2 restrictions as the ‘worst of both worlds’.Their reasoning is that tier 2 restrictions not only damage the amount of trade for small businesses but also do not come with the same financial support (such as Job Support Scheme and the Local Restrictions Support Grant) available to businesses in tier 3 areas.When will the restrictions end for small businesses?The good news is that tier 2 restrictions will undergo a review every two weeks. Therefore, an area under tier 2 might be downgraded to tier 1, where the restrictions are less strict.The bad news is that if infection rates get worse, tier 2 areas might move to tier 3. This would mean more restrictions and would make things tougher than they already are for small businesses in tier 2.However, it’s still too early to tell what the future holds, so we’ll have to wait and see. The new rules might still lead to lower infection rates, as they are intended to. This might then translate to the easing of current restrictions.If you are running a small business in a tier 2 area, one of the most useful things you can do in the meantime is protect your finances.

May 10 protest at the New School, N.Y.New York — Students at the New School here have occupied their cafeteria since May 1 in solidarity with cafeteria workers under attack by a union-busting administration and with graduate student workers fighting for a contract and livable wage.When the New School administration announced it planned to lay off all cafeteria workers, represented by UNITE HERE Local 100, and have them reapply for their jobs, with most positions to be filled by students, students sprang into action to defend the cafeteria workers. They occupied the cafeteria, demanding no workers be laid off. Students rejected this racist, union-busting attack on Black and Brown workers with the slogan, “All of Us or None! Every Single Job!”The workers announced May 10 that they had reached an agreement ensuring that every cafeteria worker would continue to have a job at the New School and setting dates for contract negotiations.As one student, who asked not be named, put it: “It was the collective power of the workers and students together that forced the New School to give back every worker a job and their union.” Another student added: “This victory was not given to us by the bosses or the president, but was something workers and students took for ourselves through collective action.”In addition to the struggle in the cafeteria, graduate student workers, represented by the Student Employees at the New School-United Auto Workers, have been fighting for a contract since 2014. Graduate student workers keep the New School running by teaching and assisting courses, grading papers, tutoring students and carrying out research, yet, for what is often a full-time job, they are paid part-time poverty wages with no health care benefits.After four years without a contract, graduate student workers went on strike May 8-13, setting up picket lines at New School buildings and demanding a fair contract that will include a livable wage and health care.The strike has forced economic concessions from the administration, but its proposals, particularly on health care, remain unsatisfactory to the graduate student workers. Negotiations are expected to continue.

Obama Admin Own Worst Enemy on Climate? Home Energy Obama Admin Own Worst Enemy on Climate? Facebook Twitter SHARE By Andy Eubank – Sep 22, 2014 A new full page advertisement in Monday’s New York Times tells President Obama that if his administration accepts the EPA’s proposal to fundamentally alter the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS)—a decision the President is expected to make soon—he “will have inadvertently done more to damage [his] climate legacy than [his] worst enemies.” The ad warns that the proposal would let oil companies off the hook for blocking competition from American renewable fuels, and prompt an exodus of investment in cellulosic ethanol—the world’s cleanest motor fuel—to China and Brazil.Running in the New York Times Monday, the message coincides with “The People’s Climate March” and the beginning of Climate Week.The EPA’s ill-conceived proposal to gut the RFS comes just as the nation marks the arrival of commercial scale cellulosic ethanol production with four new facilities opening this year. In the ad, the Advanced Ethanol Council and Biotechnology Industry Organization caution President Obama that investments in additional cellulosic production beyond these four plants will likely shift overseas if the President adopts the flawed methodology of the EPA proposal, regardless of whether he decides to actually raise the renewable fuel targets in the rule.Source: Advanced Ethanol CouncilThe full text:“Dear Mr. President,“When the federal government implemented the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) a little more than six years ago, America’s innovators listened. Companies like Abengoa, INEOS Bio, and POET-DSM invested billions of dollars developing cellulosic biofuel — the cleanest, lowest carbon motor fuel in the world — and the first commercial plants came online earlier this year.“But these companies now have a problem no one anticipated.“Your Administration is proposing to change the RFS rules in the middle of the game with a brand new methodological approach that allows oil companies to avoid their obligations under the law by simply refusing to distribute renewable fuel to consumers. You will have inadvertently done more to damage your climate legacy than your worst enemies.“To be clear, our companies are not going to fail in the mission to commercialize cellulosic biofuel. But America will fail to lead the charge if your Administration lets oil companies off the hook. And papering over the problem by increasing the RFS targets this year will not prevent the exodus of investment to China and Brazil. “When you announced power plant rules to combat climate change earlier this summer, you said that we need builders to hammer into place the foundations for a new clean-energy era.“We agree. And we stand ready to back you.“But handing landmark Clean Air Act programs like the RFS over to oil companies is not going to drive investment or give low-carbon industries like ours confidence that the United States is committed to innovation and addressing climate change.“Mr. President, your legacy requires protecting the RFS.” Previous articleIndiana Soybean Farmer Participating in National Leadership ProgramNext articleMorning Outlook Andy Eubank SHARE Facebook Twitter
