The agency reports that given the infectious nature of the virus it is likely other residents are infected but yet to be tested or confirmed positive. To that end, all New Mexicans have been instructed to stay home except for outings absolutely necessary for health, safety and welfare. These additional restrictions have been enacted to aggressively minimize person-to-person contact and ensure spread is mitigated. New Mexicans are strongly urged to limit travel to only what is necessary for health, safety and welfare.The New Mexico Department of Health has active investigations into the positive patients, which includes contact-tracing and swabs of symptomatic individuals who have had contact with the positive cases.Every New Mexican must work together to stem the spread of COVID-19.

Wear a mask or face covering when in public and around others.New Mexicans who report symptoms of COVID-19 infection, such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, and/or loss of taste or smell should call their health care provider or the NMDOH COVID-19 hotline immediately (1-855-600-3453).Thanks to increased statewide testing capacity, the following people may now be considered for COVID-19 testing: Asymptomatic people who are close contacts or household members of New Mexico residents who have already tested positive for the coronavirus;Asymptomatic residents in nursing homes;Asymptomatic people in congregate settings such as homeless shelters, group homes, detention centers;Asymptomatic people who are currently working; andSymptomatic people displaying the COVID-19 symptoms of cough, fever, shortness of breath, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, and/or loss of taste or smell.New Mexicans who have non-health-related questions or concerns can also call 833-551-0518 or visit newmexico.gov, which is being updated regularly as a one-stop source for information for families, workers and others affected by and seeking more information about COVID-19.

Jonathan Goldsmith is the secretary general of the Council of Bars and Law Societies of Europe, which represents more than 700,000 European lawyers through its member bars and law societies As the euro and the idea of Europe go into freefall, as the UK’s debts mount and swingeing cuts take place, let us talk about something really important: why is it that so few great artists have been lawyers?Of course, there are lawyers who write primarily about lawyers and their work, and who have became famous for it: John Mortimer and Frances Fyfield in this country, John Grisham and Scott Turow in the US. For those with long memories and ancient reading habits, there is A. P. Herbert, who was called to the bar but never practised. But, with due respect to these highly successful authors, they do not belong in the rank of great artists. Of course, most artists spend their life on their art, and do not have other careers. There are some who practise a profession very close to that of their artistic output: William Shakespeare and Harold Pinter were actors; Franz Liszt and Wolfgang Mozart were virtuoso performers; Johann Sebastian Bach was an organist and choir master; Gustav Mahler was a conductor; Charles Dickens was a journalist. Many have been teachers of the art they practised. This group does not really come within the scope of my question. I am more interested in those who have practised a profession which is removed from the field of their artistic endeavour. Is there something about the law which is inimical to great art? The doctors have Anton Chekhov, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Mikhail Bulgakov, William Carlos Williams, John Keats and Somerset Maugham (the last two of whom did not practise). The insurers have Franz Kafka, Charles Ives and Wallace Stevens, though Kafka studied law and Wallace Stevens started as a lawyer. The civil servants have Anthony Trollope from the Post Office, C. P. Cavafy from the Ministry of Public Works in Alexandria, and Henri Rousseau, who was a tax collector in Paris (and was another one who studied law). The bankers have T.S. Eliot. The librarians have Philip Larkin. The chemists have Alexander Borodin. But whom do the lawyers have? It is difficult to find anyone in the front rank. It is galling that the doctors and even the insurers appear to beat us hands-down. Of course, there are people who studied law, but never practised it. Handel is another good example of this – his father forced him to study law. But where are the great artists who have been practising lawyers? The only one I can find in the front rank is the English novelist Henry Fielding, who became a barrister and then chief magistrate of London and founder of the Bow Street Runners. Lesser artists include the American novelist Louis Auchincloss, who died earlier this year: he was a wills and trusts partner in a New York law firm; and the 20th century poet Roy Fuller, who was an in-house solicitor for a building society. There is an American website which has an extremely long list of lawyer poets, but I must say that I did not recognise any of their names. The basic requirements of practising doctors and lawyers are not that different, albeit in different fields: observing human beings, making judgements about the best course of future action, dealing with casework. I would say that the intellectual content of legal work is higher than that of medical work. Yet the doctors have a long and proud line of great artists among their number. Is it that people with artistic temperaments do not like the law – witness the number of successful artists who studied law but then went on to another profession? Or does the law drive out art, and if so, why? I am perfectly aware that my knowledge is deficient, and I might be ignorant of wonderful, top-ranking artists who were also practising lawyers. Please tell me that Jane Austen was also a corporate partner at Clifford Chance, or that Frédéric Chopin was a high street practitioner in Warsaw before he moved to Paris. It would put me out of my misery.
The Bar Standards Board has given the green light for the introduction of standard contractual terms that will enable barristers to sue solicitors for unpaid fees.The proposals, which are due to be accepted after amendment at the Board’s next meeting later this month, will replace the current non-contractual Terms of Work under which barristers operate.This will enable barristers to sue solicitors for non-payment of fees.The withdrawal of credit scheme, under which barristers are prohibited from accepting work from ‘blacklisted’ solicitors without payment in advance, and which the Law Society had threatened to challenge as being unlawful, will be abolished.It will be replaced by an advisory list of defaulting solicitors maintained by the Bar Council, listing those against whom a court judgment had been made in respect of unpaid fees.The BSB dropped its proposal that the new terms be applied in default of any other agreement being in place.The remaining point for the Board to determine before it approves the final proposal is whether the cab rank rule should only apply to work offered to barristers on the standard terms contained within the new contractual terms.The Bar Council and the Law Society had tried to negotiate the terms of a new contract for the best part of decade, but the two professions were not able to agree on the standard terms and the Law Society has ceased to be involved in the negotiations.Charles Hollander QC, chair of the BSB’s standards committee, said the current rules are ‘completely obsolete’ and ‘have to go’, particularly in light of the fact that the solicitors’ code of conduct removed the professional obligation to pay barristers’ fees in 2007.Last week, the BSB said that it will allow barristers to conduct litigation.

But thanks to all the visitors an amazing total of nearly £37,000 was raised for Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centres- the charity set-up in memory of Jencks’ late wife plus The Queens nursing institute of Scotland, and other charities supported by Scotlands Gardens .Plans are already underway for next year’s event, with details published by Scotland’s Gardens at the end of 2017.
