CDC issues warning for travel within the United States

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, August 4, 2016 – The UK tells its pregnant citizens not to travel to South Florida as the CDC for the first time in history issued a warning for travel within the United States.  And today Magnetic Media learned that the US has now added the Turks and Caicos Islands to its advisories regarding the Zika Virus.The US Embassy in Nassau over the phone confirmed to us that they are monitoring very closely these islands, and have in the meantime recommended that their US Citizens traveling to or residing in the TCI enroll in the Department of State’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program or STEP.  This allows citizens to get US updates and makes it easier for the US consulate to contact them, as American citizens in the event of an emergency.Meanwhile, in Florida the CDC has named a 100 square mile area, north of Down Town Miami – Windward – as a Zika stricken zone due to 15 confirmed cases of local transmissions; which means mosquitoes are passing along the scary virus to residents there.Meanwhile, in Florida the CDC has named a 100 square mile area, north of Down Town Miami – Windward – as a Zika stricken zone due to 15 confirmed cases of local transmissions; which means mosquitoes are passing along the scary virus to residents there.  There has been concern by residents that the five cases in TCI were not more immediately reported; during House of Assembly debate last week, the Health Minister, Premier Rufus Ewing explained what factored into the delay in reporting.  But that explanation does not take away the local population or a tourists’ right to know.The Centers for Disease Control explains in the Mandatory Reporting of Infectious Diseases by Clinicians document that, “Reporting of cases of infectious diseases and related conditions has been and remains a vital step in controlling and preventing the spread of communicable disease. These reports are useful in many ways, including assurance of provision of appropriate medical therapy, detection of common-source outbreaks and planning and evaluating prevention and control programs.”There has been no update since the initial report of five confirmed cases in the TCI; we still have no idea what island, which part of the island or if there are more cases waiting to be confirmed.  In the US, quite a contrast, as the CDC has been so specific in reporting the infested area of Florida that it has narrowed it down to square miles, tells that there are 15 confirmed cases, and advises its citizens and guests to the country not to go to the Winward District.

LNG arrives for JPS Bogue power plant

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppMontego Bay, Jamaica, October. 23, 2016 –  The Government’s drive to bring cheaper and cleaner energy to the people of Jamaica has been advanced with the arrival of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) for the Jamaica Public Service Company (JPS) power plant in Bogue, St. James.  Supplied by New Fortress Energy, the shipment arrived at the Port of Montego Bay aboard the feeder ship Anthony Veeder on October 22.Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of JPS, Kelly Tomblin, said the introduction of LNG as part of the energy mix represents “a historic milestone for Jamaica” as the nation pursues “energy diversification and the expansion of its energy sector”.  Ms. Tomblin, who was at the Montego Bay port for the ship’s arrival, said New Fortress has pumped US$750 million into the construction of the LNG terminal.  She said that natural gas will play a key role in transforming the energy sector, while supporting industrial development and economic growth. “We are definitely on the threshold of great things for Jamaica and the region,” Ms. Tomblin added.Just a year ago, New Fortress Energy signed an agreement with JPS to supply LNG for Jamaica’s 120-megawatt power plant in Bogue. Earlier this year, the plant was converted to run on gas as well as Automotive Diesel Oil (ADO).   JPS and New Fortress Energy have also signed an agreement to extend the supply of gas to Jamaica to the new 190-megawatt power plant at Old Harbour Bay, St. Catherine. New Fortress Energy has agreed to privately finance and develop the infrastructure necessary to deliver LNG to the new Old Harbour plant.Meanwhile, Project Manager at the Port Authority of Jamaica, Keith Mitchell, said the agency is pleased to have done its part in facilitating the arrival of the vessel and to provide the infrastructure for the cargo to be unloaded.  “The LNG diversification project has resulted in the Authority fast-tracking its master plan for the development of the Port of Montego Bay into a modern facility with separate berths dedicated to cargo operations and cruise shipping,” he pointed out.“We are also delighted to have been able to facilitate and enable the realisation of a national objective, which has been in the pipeline for a number of years.  This project is of national importance and is part of the Government’s drive to bring cheaper energy to the Jamaican people,” he added.He informed that the Port Authority leased the lands to New Fortress for infrastructural works to enable the weekly arrival of LNG to be offloaded, converted and channelled for use at the Bogue Power Plant.   “This investment has the potential to significantly reduce energy costs and thus drive economic development and job creation and promote the wide industrial application of LNG,” Mr. Mitchell further explained.“It will also see the facilitation of cruise and cargo vessels using LNG as well as the exportation of the product to other regional countries,” he added.  He noted that with the weekly docking of the LNG vessel coupled with the increased home-porting activities, there is need for the development of new port infrastructure, and a new dedicated cargo berth for docking containers and liquid bulk (fuels) vessels.  “There are indeed numerous opportunities for Jamaica to benefit,” Mr. Mitchell added.

We were not really at it today.Steven Gerrard, Michael OwenOwen reveals why Liverpool didn’t offer Gerrard a new contract Manuel R. Medina – September 6, 2019 According to Owen, the Reds wanted to sell Gerrard two years before he left the club and that’s why they didn’t offer him a contract renewal.“But all the talk before the game was of how we can’t win away from home, so we will take the three points and move on.“We are on the back of two really good performances and in your head, you are looking for something close to that.

Airbnb will collect the taxes at the time renters pay for their reservation, then remit the revenue to the city. San Diego and Carlsbad have similar agreements with the company.The city collected roughly $2.5 million in transient occupancy taxes during the 2017-18 fiscal year. Oceanside plans to use the revenue to pay for expenses like police and firefighter salaries and city parks.“Tourism revenue plays an important part in the city budget, and this process will ensure that the appropriate taxes from that industry are collected in a timely and efficient fashion,” Oceanside City Manager Michelle Skaggs Lawrence said.The city has sought to regulate the short-term rental market that has rapidly expanded in coastal communities and towns throughout the county. Earlier this year, city officials and the Oceanside City Council expressed interest in requiring home owners to obtain a license and pay an annual fee if they want to list their home on a vacation rental platform like Airbnb or VRBO.According to Airbnb, the company has collected and remitted more than $1.25 billion in tourism tax revenue at its listings around the world since 2014.“Airbnb helps Oceanside families earn extra money to help make ends meet while allowing visitors to stay in local neighborhoods to experience this beautiful coastal community,” said Matt Middlebrook, Airbnb’s head of policy in California. “We are excited to partner with the city of Oceanside to make the tax collection process easier for hosts and want to promote healthy tourism in Oceanside communities.” Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitterlast_img

Acid victim Bethany Storro appears in court

first_imgA Vancouver woman who gained worldwide notoriety for falsely claiming to be the victim of an acid attack was in court Tuesday morning to postpone her March trial date.Flanked by her defense attorney and Clark County Prosecutor Tony Golik, Bethany J. Storro, 28, entered Clark County Superior Court Judge John Nichols’ courtroom. She was met by a barrage of reporters and TV cameramen packed in the first few rows. Cameras snapped as Storro approached the judge’s bench. Dressed in black pants and a black coat, Storro’s face appeared to have healed somewhat since her last hearing, though it was still pink, blotchy and scabbed. In December, her face had been brighter red.The entire hearing lasted less than a minute. Defense attorney Andrew Wheeler told the judge that he just received reports from Western State Hospital late last week concerning his client’s mental state and needed time to review them.“Are you waiving your right to a speedy trial?” Judge Nichols asked Storro.“Yes, your honor,” she said.Nichols set trial for May 16, with a readiness hearing May 12. The trial had earlier been set for March 9.It’s uncertain whether Storro — who is charged with three counts of second-degree theft for community donations received under false pretenses — will even stand trial.last_img

Two dogs kill 20yearold feline

first_imgTwo dogs repeatedly spotted roaming the area around the 1300 block of Northwest 80th Street, north of 78th Street and east of Lakeshore Avenue, attacked and killed a cat Thursday evening.Gail Roberton said her 20-year-old black cat Boo was mauled to death in her front yard sometime between 5:30 and 6 p.m.One of Roberton’s neighbors chased off the dogs, which Roberton described as “pit bulls or pit bull mixes.”A mail carrier told Roberton he often sees the animals in that area. It is not known who, if anyone, owns the animals. “They could get anybody’s cat, or child, who knows,” Roberton said of the dogs. The incident was reported to Clark County Animal Control. Anyone with information on the dogs is asked to call animal control at 360-397-2375.The Vancouver City Council declined on Monday to consider a ban against pit bulls, opting instead to explore bolstering ordinances dealing with dangerous dogs in general.last_img

Clark Public Utilities to offer a way to track energy use

first_imgA pilot program set to launch this fall will give Clark Public Utilities customers a closer look at their energy usage, and a chance to see how they stack up against their neighbors.In an effort to entice people to conserve, the utility will send periodic “home energy reports” to about 20,000 customers, detailing their usage and suggestions on how to cut back. A separate Facebook application will allow customers to compare their results online with others, or even coordinate friendly energy-saving competitions.Utilities across the country have joined the program, crafted by Virginia-based conservation company OPower, in recent years. The Bonne-ville Power Administration helped bring Southwest Washington into the mix earlier this year, kicking in $300,000 to help two local utilities and a Puget Sound-area utility roll out their own versions.The idea, said BPA program lead Summer Goodwin, is to help people tackle energy conservation from a new vantage point.“Usually, we’re talking about technology,” Goodwin said. “Here, we’re talking about human or organizational behavior.”Plenty of people have taken it upon themselves to use less energy where they can. But a little competition doesn’t hurt.Here’s how it works: Clark Public utilities will initially select a pool of 30,000 customers who might be able to cut back on excess energy usage based on past history, said Larry Blaufus, a senior manager with the utility. About 20,000 of those will start receiving home energy reports in the mail by September and October.The utility will keep track of how much they cut back, he said, using the other 10,000 customers (who won’t receive reports) as a sort of control group to gauge the difference.last_img

No national system exists to track landslide hazards

first_imgSEATTLE — People living in the path of a deadly Washington state landslide had virtually no warning before a wall of mud, trees and other debris thundered down the mountain. Some of the homeowners didn’t even know the hillside could give way at any time.Unlike the warning systems and elaborate maps that help residents and officials prepare for natural disasters such as floods and hurricanes, there’s no national system to monitor slide activity and no effort underway to produce detailed nationwide landslide hazard maps. The U.S. Geological Survey doesn’t track or inventory slide areas on a national scale, despite an ambitious plan to do so more than a decade ago when Congress directed it to come up with a national strategy to reduce landslide losses. That’s left states and communities to put together a patchwork of maps showing landslide hazards. In some cases, they are discovering that more buildings than previously thought are sitting on unstable ground. Even then, that information may not make its way to property owners. Building a nationwide system is now possible with new technology, experts say, but would require spending tens of millions of dollars annually and could take more than a decade to complete with the help of states and cities. So far, however, there has been little public outcry for faster, concerted action.last_img

Pope has tough sell on materialism in South Korea

first_imgDAEJEON, South Korea — Pope Francis called Friday for Catholics to combat the allure of materialism, an appeal that might be a hard sell in South Korea, a newly rich and hyper-competitive country.Far from being considered an evil, the trappings of wealth are often linked here to the hard work, sacrifice and gritty persistence of generations who hustled their nation out of war, dictatorship and poverty into an Asian powerhouse.“I don’t want to knock successful people off their pedestal just because they have a lot of money,” said Kim Eui-kyun, a 61-year-old from Seoul who described himself as a lapsed Catholic. “If someone has made a fortune for himself, fair and square, and has a lot of money, I don’t think that’s something to be condemned. I look up to them, actually, and I wonder, ‘What did I do wrong?”‘Francis made the call during his first public Mass in Asia. He received a boisterous welcome from tens of thousands of young Asians gathered for a Catholic festival in the central city of Daejeon. During his homily, Francis urged the faithful to reject “inhuman” economic policies that disenfranchise the poor and “the spirit of unbridled competition which generates selfishness and strife.”It’s a theme he has raised frequently during his pontificate, railing against the “idolatry of money” and the excesses of capitalism that leave the poorest even further on the margins of society. While his message has been met with skepticism among some conservatives in the U.S. who have branded him a Marxist, it has been welcomed in much of the developing world and even some South Koreans said Friday he had a point.last_img
