A Peek Into Water Consumption

Juan Anciso, AgriLife Extension horticulturist, Weslaco, said the winter conditions rival a historic hit to Texas farmers in December 1989. There were notable freezes that damaged South Texas crops in 2004 and 2011, and a few in prior decades going back to the 1950s, but December 1989 caused severe damage to Texas winter crops, including citrus. “We’ll know if it ranks with ’89 in a few weeks, but temperatures are well below the threshold for crops and for long periods,” he said. “That’s not a good combination for growers.” Anciso said the temperature low in Weslaco was 21 degrees.

A Peek Within Quality Management

Andrew Cuomo initially threatened health care providers with a $1 million fine and loss of their licenses if they vaccinated someone who was not eligible. That was walked back following reports of clinics throwing away doses rather than giving them to people who might not fit the eligibility profile. Massachusetts is up front about "vaccine wastage," as it's called. It makes a chart available online showing tossed COVID-19 vaccine, which in almost all cases was discarded because of storage or delivery problems that let doses get too warm for too long. The state's vaccine allocation guidance specifically calls for all vaccine to beused, even if it means moving

The Basic Principles Concerning Lifestyle

Lawmakers for years have debated and passed changes to sex education laws in Arizona. In 2019, the Legislature repealed a provision of state law many deemed antiquated that forbid instruction promoting a "homosexual lifestyle," according to the law. Other proposed reforms have come out of a renewed movement to support parental rights by putting more proactive decision-making power in their hands. Supporters of that movement, however, also have attacked comprehensive sex education, spreading false notions about the role Planned Parenthood has on instruction in the state. Opponents of this

Here’s a number of the day for ya: 50.7%. That is the average failure rate of BDO USA audits in PCAOB inspection reports from 2010 to its most recent 2019 report, in which PCAOB inspectors found significant errors in 42% of audits reviewed.

Training Overview

ProPublica’s 2018 investigation revealed in detail how a once-formidable agency feared or despised almost universally by Americans has become so comparatively toothless.

This reduction in manpower has meant that even people who don’t file taxes at all — which seems like the easiest way to get investigated by the IRS — aren’t being pursued by the agency. The biggest beneficiaries of a weakened IRS are big corporations. They have the resources to hire the best accountants in the world who can help
