Blizzard Links

“Oh the weather outside is frightful…” so it is the perfect time to catch-up on all the blogs I follow and give my readers some interesting law links while I sip on some hot chocolate.  There is a blizzard tonight in New York City.  I cannot wait until morning to see how beautiful Central Park is with snow on the ground.  I hope this post finds you safe in this winter weather.

Some interesting law and policy links for your snow day reading:

1.  In case you missed it, fellow agriculture attorney Craig Raysor (@AgriLawyer) had a great Twitterview with @22Twts.

2.  Three law “geeks” stated in this post that even though social media is a current trend, social networking isn’t.  Nice post about agriculture producers and social media here.

3.  National Corn Growers Association (“NCGA”) has started a new podcast titled “Off the Cob” discussing news and policy affecting corn producers.

4.  Read @AndyVance‘s views on climate change legislation here and here.  Raquel, a New Yorker, posted her thoughts on the subject here.  Review a nice recap of what happened in Copenhagen here.

5.  Did you miss any of the BEEF Daily‘s Top posts in 2009?

6.  If you are a Texas A & M University ansci “former Aggie” (because once you are an Aggie, you are always an Aggie), you are encouraged to submit your story about Dr. Howard Hesby (aka “H-squared”) to Chris Boleman for the memoir of our beloved professor titled “Our Hero, Howard Hesby.”  I have quite a few fond memories of Dr. Hesby.  I went on an agriculture trip to California with him during my senior year at TAMU.

7.  Some considerations for farms and agribusinesses — employees vs. independent contractors.

8.  What do you believe the role of biotechnology will be to help solve food insecurity issues?

9.  Informative post here about tax planning for agriculture enterprises.

10.  Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (“APHIS”) released a draft Environmental Impact Statement (“EIS”) under the National Environmental Policy Act (“NEPA”).

And finally, since there is a blizzard outside, this made me laugh.  Have a wonderful weekend!
