The measure – introduced by Oregon 5th District Representative Kurt Schrader – would codify a controversial agreement between the United Egg Producers and the Humane Society of the United States. According to the Humane Farming Association – the egg industry is seeking to establish egg factory cages as a national standard that could never be challenged or changed by state law or public vote. They say the bill would preempt state laws – such as California’s Proposition 2 – and is a direct assault upon egg laying hens, voters and states’ rights.Groups like the National Pork Producers Council and National Cattlemen’s Beef Association also oppose the bill – but for different reasons. Both groups warn the bill could set a dangerous precedent of allowing the federal government to dictate how livestock producers operate.

Lees Foods has reached a settlement with the former directors and shareholders of Patisserie UK, which will see the Coatbridge-based firm receive approximately £225,000.In June this year Lees announced it would be taking legal action against the people from whom it bought Patisserie UK – a specialist bakery business that went into administration in March 2009 under Lees’ ownership. Lees, which owns the Lees of Scotland and Waverley Bakery businesses, purchased Patisserie UK’s holding company Rock Cake in December 2007 from its directors, who had set up the company in a management buy-out from Enterprise Foods in February 2006. However, anticipated sales did not materialise as forecast, leading to a dispute between Lees and Patisserie UK’s former directors and shareholders.Patisserie UK was later placed in administration after its major customer Costa Coffee, which accounted for 75% of its sales, switched to another supplier.Following a “constructive process of discussion” a settlement was reached, with no admission of liability on either side, announced Lees. The £225,000 sum will be made up of £125,000 in cash and all of the 65,000 Lees ordinary shares issued to the shareholders of Patisserie UK as part of the consideration for the acquisition. The shares have a market value of approximately £100,000.
MORE: Steelers coach Mike Tomlin favors incentivizing minority hires to fix ‘broken’ systemSingletary went on to work as an assistant with the Vikings and Rams before more recently moving on to the AAF and high school football.Between his time at the NFL, AAF and high school levels, Singletary has compiled a head coaching record of 21-49 (.300). Going 1-21 at a high school program is a far cry from coaching in the NFL, which Singletary did for 12 seasons. He started out as a linebackers coach for the Ravens in 2003. Two seasons later, he joined Baltimore defensive coordinator Mike Nolan in heading to the 49ers.When Nolan was fired as head coach midway through the 2008, San Francisco named Singletary interim head coach. He remained at the helm for two more seasons, amassing an 18-22 record in two and a half before being dismissed heading into the final week of the 2010 season. Mike Singletary has accomplished a lot of great things in his football career. He was a Hall of Fame linebacker with the Bears, most notably playing on the vaunted 1985 defense that led Chicago to a Super Bowl championship. But his coaching career hasn’t quite panned out the way he hoped.The Dallas Morning News reported last week that Singletary resigned from his head coaching duties at Trinity Christian Academy in Addison, Texas. In two seasons at TCA, Singletary compiled a 1-21 record, including a winless 0-11 season in 2019. The school’s athletic director, Donald English, told the Morning News that Singletary has been focused on motivational speaking and consulting since his resignation.
