Caledonia fire update

It could be weeks before the residents at a Caledonia apartment building can return home, after being forced to leave following a Saturday morning fire.The fire on Argyle St. took two lives and the cause for the blaze will not be known until Tuesday.The damaged from the blaze is estimated at $250,000.The fire alarms in the complex are working, but the Ontario Fire Marshal still has to inspect the smoke detector in the apartment unit where both Donna and Jerry Lapierre, the two killed in the fire lived.Industrial cleaning crews spent most of Sunday removing debris and disinfecting smoke damaged walls.The Haldimand Community Support Centre has now stepped in to provide the necessities; residents can replace their damaged clothing, receive crisis counselling and eat a healthy meal, while waiting to return home.“Monday morning, we’ll provide a breakfast for them, lunches for the kids to go to school,” Linda Jewell of Helping Hands of Haldimand said “and continue until they’re back in their homes.”Donations of clothing and money can be dropped off at the Caledonia Community Foundation in the Haldimand-Norfolk Community Support Centre located at 102 Inverness St. For cheques, please note “Argyle Fire Relief Fund” on the back.For questions about donations please contact 905-765-4408. read more

The purpose of the programme was actually to exit the programme Noonan

first_imgFINANCE MINISTER MICHAEL Noonan says that the Government took the decision to exit the bailout programme without a precautionary credit line because the “time was now right”.Speaking to media in Brussels this afternoon, Noonan said that the decision was taken in large part because the Government felt that this was a “benign” time for the European economy: If we took a precautionary line now, we would have to take the same decision that we did today next November and I’ve no guarantee conditions will be as benign next year as they will be today.He continued:It can get rocky at times in Europe and things over which one has no control elsewhere in the eurozone can affect one’s decision, but its a very good time now because as I say there’s a benign window of opportunity. (Youtube/Hugh O’Connell)Noonan said that Ireland has built up cash reserves of over €20 billion which will fund the country into 2015 and if Ireland were to take on a credit line now it would be apparent that “we would not need to access it in 2014.”He said that it is the intention to see Ireland make a return to the bond markets in “late January or early February.”“The purpose of the programme and the 260 actions we took over three years was actually to exit the programme, ” he said. “Meaning that the purpose was to restore Ireland to normalcy so that we would be a normal Eurozone county making our decision in Government and funding ourselves on the markets.The TroikaTwo of our three troika partners have responded Ireland’s decision this afternoon, welcoming it as a step forward for the country.Speaking this afternoon European Commission (EC) vice-president Ollie Rehn sounded a positive note, saing  that, “In short, today is a good day for Ireland and the Irish people.”He said that he was informed of the decision by Finance Minister Michael Noonan this morning.EU commission VP Olli Rehn, left, speaks with Spanish Minister Luis de Guindos at meeting of eurogroup finance ministers  in Brussel today. Pic: (AP Photo/Virginia Mayo)Rehn said that the decision was Ireland’s alone to take and that whatever decision the Irish Government made it would have been supported by the EC.He added that: “while challenges remain Ireland has made impressive progress and is well placed to make a successful and durable programme exit”:Graduation from the programme will send a very clear signal to markets and international lenders that the adjustment effort undertaken in Ireland, with the support of its European and international partners, has paid off.The Irish Government’s decision has also been noted by the IMF, with managing director Christine Lagarde saying that “Ireland is in a strong position”. “Irish authorities have established a very strong track record of policy implementation,” she said in a statement today. “This bodes well as Ireland exits its EU/IMF-supported program”:Although uncertainties remain in Europe and the global economy more broadly, Ireland is in a strong position in terms of its bond yields and has built a sizable cash buffer. We look forward to continuing to work with the authorities as they address the challenges that remain.Read: 5 reasons why the government decided to exit the bailout and go it alone >Read: ‘This is the right decision for Ireland’: Taoiseach confirms bailout exit without credit line >last_img read more

ESM to ensure success of bond issue

first_imgstated aim this year, in the words of its prime minister, is to return to the money markets, and the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) is set to play a key role in that effort, despite European Commission officials and investment managers Pimco saying they don’t expect Greece to return to the markets before 2015.Athens has repeatedly said that it will tap the markets in the second half of 2014. Market professionals take it for granted that the ESM will guarantee the project’s success by offering some sort of credit line. One of the main scenarios under consideration is for the ESM to support the Greek effort by stating in advance that it will cover a significant part of the state bond issue, to the tune of 33 to 67 percent.Therefore if Greece proceeds with the issue of five-year bonds to borrow 2 billion euros and ESM states it will cover 50 percent of it, then – depending on the response by private investors – the European Mechanism could proceed to the purchase of bonds up to 1 billion euros. That move would essentially safeguard that the issue would not be left uncovered, with the indirect support convincing even the most skeptical investors to participate in the Greek issue.Of course such support would come with conditions attached, mainly concerning the implementation of the structural reforms Greece has agreed to in the context of its fiscal streamlining.Nevertheless a European Commission document dated December 16, 2013 that emerged on Friday suggested Greece will only make a partial return to the money markets in 2015. In a response to an investigation by the European Parliament on the bailout agreements for eurozone countries, the Commission expressly stated that “the expectation is that market access for Greece could partly resume from 2015.” On Friday a senior officer at Pimco also told German newspaper Suddeutsche Zeitung that the firm is not expecting Greece to return to the market before 2015.Despite these statements, the messages coming from the international markets point to an eagerness on the part of investors to buy Greek debt again, as they watch the spread between the benchmark 10-year bond with the German 10-year bund continue to drop.Source: Kathimerini Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

BAHAMAS Workshop held for Determining National Strategy for the Development of Statistics

first_imgDiscuss and come to a consensus on matters pertaining to the NSDS strategic framework such as the vision, mission, goals, and strategic objectives. Related Items: Prioritize the results and recommendations from the National Statistics System (NSS) assessment; and DPM Turnquest explained that having a plan is not enough, by itself.  He said there are a number of other necessary activities that must be completed if the project is to be done properly, and it is going to be done properly.The DPM said along with the plan, this year the Government will also conduct a NSS-wide Business Processes Review focused on detailed analysis of current (as-is) processes, identification of gaps, benchmarking with existing standards and best practice, and design of future (to-be) processes to enable a seamless, integrated, effective, and efficient National Statistics System.This will also include an assessment of the information technology functional and technical capacity to deliver the kind of National Statistics System that you will all help to shape.He said additionally, recognizing the human resource challenges faced, the government will also conduct a Human Resource (HR) audit that is expected to identify those areas of the Department of Statistics and the National Statistics System in need of improvement, as well as their strengths, while taking into consideration the proposed new structure for the Department of Statistics and the National Statistics System.“It will include the review of various HR policies, systems, documentations, and rules and regulations and will assess the efficiency and productivity of employees. Additionally, various aspects of the HR department in the Department of Statistics, such as employee compensation, recruitment and training, employee perks, job descriptions, performance evaluation procedures, termination procedures, etc. will also be reviewed.”DPM Turnquest told the participants that they were all chosen for a very specific reason.“Your unique knowledge of the underlying issues that have us in the state that we are currently in with respect to official statistics is going to be vital for identifying the short, medium and long-term goals of this project; and, for its implementation in the very near future.“Based on the findings of the assessment, it was determined that there is limited analysis and report writing that takes place using the data produced. This has contributed to a limited use of the data that is available for planning and evidence-based decision-making.”He said, “Moving forward, you may determine that we must have, as a goal, greater use of statistics for policy, planning and decision-making. But you must also tell us whether, in order to achieve this, we must have short term objectives such as increasing awareness about the benefits of statistics to society, increasing user satisfaction, or other effective strategies.”By: Llonella Gilbert (BIS)Photo Captions:Header: Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, the Hon.

Care providers clash at hearing on proposed hospice center

first_imgA public hearing Tuesday on granting a certificate of need for what would be Clark County’s second inpatient hospice center drew a crowd of 100, mostly employees of two hospice providers at odds over the need for the proposed facility.The hearing focused on whether there is enough demand for inpatient hospice care to justify the construction of a 15-bed inpatient hospice center at 3100 NE 136th Circle in Salmon Creek. The project is proposed by Community Home Health & Hospice.CHHH claims that its existing client base will fill the beds.PeaceHealth Southwest, owner of Ray Hickey Hospice House, now the county’s only hospice center, opposes the project because it claims the second facility isn’t needed. Ray Hickey has 20 beds at 2112 E. Mill Plain Blvd. in the Central Park neighborhood near Clark College. A second center could cause the financial ruin of both hospice centers given lack of demand for inpatient services, PeaceHealth Southwest administrators said.Some speakers from the health industry and Clark County residents said palliative care is trending toward at-home care. That will slow or decrease demand for inpatient services despite the burgeoning senior population.Sonjia Hauser, Ray Hickey clinical manager, said there is room for CHHH clients at the existing facility. (Ray Hickey and CHHH have a contract in which Ray Hickey provides hospice beds to CHHH on a space-available basis.)last_img read more

Anchorage Capital Budget Seeking 350 Million for Port Expansion

first_imgThe City of Anchorage put out its wish-list for funding from the state Legislature, and topping the list is a request for $350 million for just one project.“The priority is: Port of Anchorage, Port of Anchorage, Port of Anchorage,” said Mayor Dan Sullivan, whose office worked with the Anchorage Assembly collecting and ranking capital projects for the city. The port funding request is more than every other item in the budget combined, it comes amid steep declines in how much money the state is willing to give Anchorage for capital expenses. In fiscal year 2013 the city got a $250,297,475 for new projects. Last year it was $80,134950.75, down more than two-thirds.Sullivan admits there’s an element of sticker-shock in the request, but the price tag is meant to give legislators a realistic cost on updating a port serving 85% of communities in the state.“We’re hoping for a commitment,”Sullivan explained, “over the next several years, if we can break this into several pieces. So, we’ll work closely with our legislators and the governor and see if we can’t come up with a funding mechanism that works for everybody.”Sullivan and other members of the Assembly are hoping the scaled back plans adopted for the port’s final design will convince legislators that upgrades are not an extravagance, they are a necessity.Other priorities in the wish-list include the Midtown Transit Center and several road updates to facilitate more east-west vehicle traffic. The current assembly shares the mayor’s focus on funding infrastructure programs, which made for a smooth budgeting cycle this year.“It was a very good process, you’ll find both the executive branch and the legislative branch, for the most part, were on the same page,” said DickTraini said, vice-chair for the Assembly.Traini believes it’s unrealistic to expect Legislators to fund every item in the 66-page document, but that at the very minimum it gives representatives a more detailed view of their constituents’ needs.You can view the full capital budget here.last_img read more

JK Bank chairman Parvez Ahmad gave loans to please politicians appointed relatives

first_imgJ&K Bank Chairman, Pervez Ahmad has been removed by the government with immediate effectTwitterThe details surrounding the unceremonious exit of the J&K Bank chairman Parvez Ahmad, who was removed from the post following an order by the J&K administration headed by the Governor Satya Pal Malik, are getting murkier. The investigation carried out by the Anti-Corruption Bureau of the J&K Police has revealed that Parvez gave away loans worth hundreds of crores to people at the behest of politicians such as Sajad Lone and Imran Raza Ansari. He even appointed his nieces, nephews and other relatives to top notch positions in various branches of the bank.The J&K Bank shares even tanked by 20 per cent on Monday morning following the news of shaking up of the bank’s management. The shares, however, recovered later in the day.Parvez had offered that he is open to any enquiry following the government order and that he is not involved in any case of corruption.However, the J&K Police ACB investigations have obtained credible leads on how Parvez favoured politicians and their relatives when it came to appointing executives at the bank, gave away loans to people on the request of Sajad Lone and other politicians.Fraud appointments The police investigations said that the J&K Bank chairman appointed many of his relatives including niece Shazia Ambreen, nephew Faheem Nengroo, Asif Beg and many other relatives at senior level positions across various branches of the bank. In fact, one of his relatives was hired at the office from where Parvez was operating, the Times of India reported.J&K Governor Satya Pal Malik had earlier exposed the rot within the bank by revealing that nearly 582 appointments made in the bank for the post of relationship executives were done at the behest of politicians and ministers of PDP and BJP parties. He had said that the meritorious candidates did not even figure on the final selection list.  In picture: People walk past a branch of the Jammu and Kashmir Bank. [Representational image]TwitterParvez’s niece Shazia, who was appointed as the probationary officer, was made the head of the  Hazratbal branch whereas his nephews were put on the board which monitored credit proposals and HR teams.Dubious bank branches operated from personal premises?J&K Bank had apparently turned into a personal property of Parvez who had opened two branches at his native place in Kapran, Shopian, as well as from his in-laws’ place in Pulwama. The J&K Bank under Parvez Ahmad’s tenure even sanctioned the construction work to select individuals when the actual money spent on the construction was only 30 percent. The J&K Bank recently signed an insurance deal with a private firm where one of his nephews is working.Loans waived off for habitual defaulters Some of the biggest defaulters of the J&K Bank include the high profile politicians and bureaucrats who were reportedly offered a one-time settlement for unpaid loans in exchange of kickbacks. The bank violated the guidelines/ standard operating procedures to offer loans to select individualslast_img read more

Is Sony planning a PSP UMD game tradein program

first_imgOne of the downfalls of the PSPgo was the fact that gamers who had invested heavily in UMD games for the PSP, had no way of transferring them over to digital copies. It made the move to the PSPgo all the more expensive, and in most cases not worth it.For the PS Vita, Sony may have learned its lesson as it looks likely some deal is going to be offered to transfer your hard-copy UMD games to a digital version playable on the Vita.Details of what exactly is planned are still sketchy. The announcement has so far only been made to retailers who will have to support the offer. The only official confirmation something is in the works has come via Yoshio Matsumoto, Sony’s development chief. He has stated some sort of special price will be offered for updating to digital versions of the games.The fact that retailers have been told about this first suggests Sony is planning a trade-in program. You would take your UMD discs to a participating retailer, pay a few dollars, and get a download code for the same game off PSN. If that’s the case, the special price will have to be very low as I doubt anyone would be willing to pay more than a handling fee for such as service if they lose the UMD version in the process.We learned earlier today how much Sony intends to sell PS Vita physical and download games for. If the pricing remains high, then playing your old games on the new handheld may turn out to be quite a popular activity as gamers wait for new game pricing to fall.For the time being hold on to your PSP as this UMD deal may turn out to be just another expensive way to upgrade to digital. Sony wouldn’t be willing to lose money on such an offer, but if it got people buying a PS Vita, they would certainly consider doing it at break even cost.via Eurogamer.netlast_img read more

This city topped Bed Bugs list for 3rd straight year

first_img Posted by Tags: Orkin Thursday, January 24, 2019 << Previous PostNext Post >> Sharecenter_img ATLANTA — Warning: the following story may induce extreme itching.Orkin, an Atlanta-based pest controller, has once again released its Top 50 Bed Bug Cities list, proving that nowhere is safe when you’re travelling.Findings were based on treatment data from the metro areas where Orkin performed the most bed bug treatments from Dec. 1, 2017 to Nov. 30, 2018. Rankings include both residential and commercial treatments.For the third consecutive year, Baltimore had the unfortunate honour of topping the list, followed by Washington, D.C., Chicago, Los Angeles and Columbus, Ohio. In fact, the top five rankings remain the same from the previous year, a disheartening outcome to say the least.“Bed bugs are the number one urban pest in many cities today,” said Chelle Hartzer, an Orkin entomologist. “They are master hitchhikers, so no one is immune. Sanitation has nothing to do with prevention: from public transit to five-star resorts, bed bugs have been and can be found everywhere humans are.”The tiny critters will attach luggage, purses, backpacks, jackets and other belongs before dropping off almost anywhere to find a new carrier. According to the 2018 ‘Bugs without Borders Survey’ by the National Pest Management Association, the top three places where pest professionals report finding bed bugs are single-family homes (91%), apartments/condominiums (89%), and hotels/motels (68%).More news:  Visit Orlando unveils new travel trade tools & agent perksSo what can you do to protect yourself while on your travels? Orkin recommends the acronym S.L.E.E.P.:Survey the hotel room for signs of infestation. Be on the lookout for tiny, ink-coloured stains on mattress seams, in soft furniture and behind headboards.Lift and look in bed bug hiding spots like the mattress, box spring and other furniture, as well as behind baseboards, pictures and even torn wallpaper.Elevate luggage away from the bed and wall. The safest places are in the bathroom or on counters.Examine your luggage carefully while repacking and once you return home from a trip.
