Nomination Day Returns slow Will General Election wait be long

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, November 21, 2016 – Nomination Day for the General Elections closed at 4pm on Friday, yet more than 48 hours later the Elections Office has not produced a list of those nominees; members of the public expressed concern about the sluggish pace of the process.Elections Supervisor Dudley Lewis told Magnetic Media that he expected to have all returns within hours on the same day, but that did not happen and up to Saturday morning there were still documents outstanding.There is no employment of technology in the transmission of information and if that continues, it very likely means general election results may take days to be known.  Lewis said the official list of nominees will be dispatched today.

Governor visits TCI National Museum

first_img#TCINationalMuseum #HEJohnFreemanPress Release: TCIG Islanders invited to donate for the preservation and showcase of TCI history; new National Museum design unveiled TCI Nat’l Museum is our Smithsonian Institute says Governor Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppTurks and Caicos, March 13, 2017 – Providenciales – His Excellency the Governor, Dr John Freeman, accompanied by Mrs Freeman, visited the National Museum respectively in Grand Turk and Providenciales on the occasion of its 25th anniversary in the week of 27 February.  Commenting on the visits, the Governor said:‘The National Museum is a TCI National Treasure.  Over the past twenty five years it has grown from a quiet private initiative into a national resource and repository.   It has gradually accumulated objects and papers of inestimable value to the collective sense of belonging in these Islands.   It now serves as a living expression of a collective memory; and without a collective memory there can be no sense of collective identity.   So the National Museum should be dear to the hearts of all those who live on these Islands.Visiting the Museum’s main site in Grand Turk in the company of the distinguished members of the museum’s Board (themselves reflective of its national vocation) I was struck deeply by the valuable holdings; not just of wonderful artifacts, but also of the tremendously evocative paper holdings, the records of births and deaths, the evidence of continuities in the Islands’ population, and all held in specially constructed air-conditioned archives.  The National Museum is not some quaint local initiative, but the equivalent, for example, of the Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC: what the latter is for the US, the National Museum can be for the Turks and Caicos Islands.I also visited the new outpost of the Museum in Providenciales.  Here it is possible by visiting the reconstructed dwelling on the site to get a real sense of how life in these Islands was lived not so many years ago.  The house and the associated museum building are both an educational focus for local school groups but also an increasing attraction for visitors from abroad.It is not an exaggeration to say that TCI lives in all its cultural and historical richness in the National Museum.    It behooves  all of us to ensure that it’s longer term future is assured.” Recommended for youcenter_img Related Items:#HEJohnFreeman, #TCINationalMuseum 180 Years of full Emancipation, TCI hosts event tonight at slave plantation Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more

Stolen mule reunited with owner suspect in Escondido police custody

first_img February 26, 2018 FacebookTwitter ESCONDIDO (KUSI) — A man suspected of stealing a mule early Monday from a drifter making camp for the night in a North County park was caught hours later and arrested on suspicion of grand theft of livestock.David Albert Martinez, 28, and a cohort allegedly untied the roughly 1,000-pound animal, named Little Girl, from a tree at Grape Day Park in Escondido while her owner slept nearby and walked off with the mule shortly after midnight. A surveillance camera captured images of the perpetrators, according to police.The mule’s keeper, 70-year-old John Sears, awoke around dawn to find his pack animal gone and immediately reported the theft, Lt. Ed Varso said.Officers searched the neighborhood and surrounding areas for hours with help from a sheriff’s helicopter crew. About 2:30 p.m., police caught up with Martinez as he led Little Girl alongside a road near Dixon Lake, about a mile east of the spot where she had gone missing, the lieutenant said.The 28-year-old mule, appearing none the worse for the ordeal, was then reunited with her relieved master, Varso said.What inspired the alleged theft was unclear, the lieutenant said. Officers remained on the lookout for the outstanding suspect.Sears has traveled California on foot with a succession of mules, often three at once, for decades, according to a website that documents his travels. He gravitated toward his “ages-old nomadic life” because it’s where he and his animals “want to be” and because doing otherwise “makes no sense,” a statement on the site asserts.Sears acquired Little Girl in 1993, according to the website, which explains that he began traveling the state and living outdoors in the mid-1980s and has been doing so full time since retiring in 2001.

About 254 pounds of fentanyl 395 pounds of meth seized by Border

first_imgAbout 254 pounds of fentanyl, 395 pounds of meth seized by Border Protection RECORD FENTANYL SEIZURE – #CBP officers in AZ seized 254lbs of fentanyl and 395lbs of meth concealed in a tractor-trailer arriving from Mexico last week. It was the largest fentanyl seizure in CBP history. LEARN MORE: https://t.co/2unUTIKVbh pic.twitter.com/BZuRzgDVxG— CBP (@CBP) January 31, 2019“The size of a few grains of salt of fentanyl, which is a dangerous opioid, can kill a person very quickly,” Humphries said. The seizure, he said, had prevented an immeasurable number of doses of the drug “that could have harmed so many families.”The Drug Enforcement Administration said the previous largest U.S. seizure of fentanyl had been in August 2017 when it captured 145 pounds (66 kilograms) of the drug in a Queens, New York, apartment that was linked to the Sinaloa Cartel. Before that, the largest recorded fentanyl seizure was 88 pounds (40 kilograms) nabbed from a pickup truck in Bartow County, Georgia.Mexican traffickers have been increasingly smuggling the drug into the United States, mostly hidden in passenger vehicles and tractor-trailers trying to head through ports of entry in the Nogales, Arizona, and San Diego areas.Doug Coleman, the DEA’s special agent for the Phoenix division, expressed admiration for size of the recent bust, emphasizing that it was not the product of any intelligence from his agency but rather “pure, old fashioned police work” by the agent who pulled the truck over.“It was totally a cold hit” based on the agent’s hunch, Coleman said.Fentanyl has caused a surge in fatal overdoses around the U.S., including the 2016 accidental death of pop music legend Prince, who consumed the opioid in counterfeit pills that looked like the narcotic analgesic Vicodin.U.S. law enforcement officials say the illicit version of the painkiller is now seen mostly as a white powder that can be mixed with heroin for an extra kick as well as blue pills that are counterfeits of prescription drugs like oxycodone.The legal prescription form of the drug is used mostly to provide relief to cancer patients suffering unbearable pain at the end of their lives.DEA officials have said that while 85 percent of the illicit fentanyl entering the United States from Mexico is seized at San Diego-area border crossings, an increasing amount is being detected on the border with Arizona, a state where the Sinaloa cartel controls the drug trade and fatal fentanyl overdoses are rising.The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says in a recent report that fentanyl is now the drug most often involved in fatal overdoses across the country, accounting for more than 18,000, or almost 29 percent, of the 63,000 overdose fatalities in 2016.Full press conference: Posted: January 31, 2019 Categories: Local San Diego News, National & International News FacebookTwitter Updated: 6:32 PM AP, KUSI Newsroom, AP, KUSI Newsroom 00:00 00:00 spaceplay / pause qunload | stop ffullscreenshift + ←→slower / faster ↑↓volume mmute ←→seek  . seek to previous 12… 6 seek to 10%, 20% … 60% XColor SettingsAaAaAaAaTextBackgroundOpacity SettingsTextOpaqueSemi-TransparentBackgroundSemi-TransparentOpaqueTransparentFont SettingsSize||TypeSerif MonospaceSerifSans Serif MonospaceSans SerifCasualCursiveSmallCapsResetSave SettingsPHOENIX (AP) — U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials announced Thursday their biggest fentanyl bust ever, saying they captured nearly 254 pounds (114 kilograms) of the synthetic drug that is helping fueling a national epidemic of fatal opioid overdoses from a secret compartment inside a load of Mexican produce heading into Arizona.The drug was found hidden Saturday morning in a compartment under the rear floor of a tractor-trailer after a scan during secondary inspection indicated “some anomalies” in the load, and the agency’s police dog team alerted officers to the presence of drugs, Nogales CBP Port Director Michael Humphries said.Most of the seized fentanyl with an overall street value of about $3.5 million was in white powder form, but about 2 pounds of it (1 kilogram) was contained in pills. Agents also seized nearly 395 pounds (179 kilograms) of methamphetamine with a street value of $1.18 million, Humphries said. January 31, 2019last_img read more

Bridge traffic didnt grow with county

first_imgAverage weekday traffic volumes on the I-5 and I-205 bridges, 2002 through 2011. In a decade of growth in Clark County, a bedroom community where a third of the workforce commutes to Portland, you’d expect to see traffic on the bridges crossing the Columbia River to worsen.It didn’t.Traffic rose just 1 percent from 2002 to 2011, according to the most recent counts available, even as the county’s population grew 17 percent.Critics of the Columbia River Crossing project have argued these figures cast doubt on traffic forecasts used to justify plans for a $3.5 billion new Interstate 5 bridge.The project’s environmental impact statement estimates that, if no action is taken, 184,000 cars a day will cross the I-5 bridge in 2030. Planners say daily traffic congestion — which engineers define as freeway traffic that moves at less than 30 mph — will increase, from four to six hours a day on I-5 to 15 hours in both directions by then.Yet over the past few years, drivers have taken their feet off gas pedals for a variety of reasons — high fuel prices, a poor economy and generational shifts.“People are driving less,” said Portland economist Joe Cortright, a critic of the bridge project.Planners estimated 143,700 vehicles would cross the I-5 bridge on the average weekday in 2010 –13 percent higher than the 126,900 actually experienced, Cortright points out.Project planners look past blips in the near term to focus on “long-range needs in the corridor,” Mandy Putney, spokeswoman for the project, wrote in response to The Columbian’s inquiries. “Traffic forecasts are not based simply on projecting recent trends, but on developing future forecasts of transportation use based on other variables including population and employment forecast.”last_img read more

Weather Eye In the aftermath of the windstorm a look ahead to

first_imgPatrick Timm I got an early start on my column in case we lost power in Saturday’s windstorm. Winds were expected to gust to maybe 50-60 mph. With the ground saturated and all the leaves on the trees, not good.The annual winter-weather meeting was Saturday. KGW meteorologist Rod Hill of Vancouver predicts temperatures normal to above normal, and precipitation iffy. Could go either way, wetter or drier, but end up within 4 inches of average. Snow? Maybe a trace to 4 inches. One 8-inch snowfall is possible. He believes Mount Hood will have an average snow season with 500 inches of snowfall. For details go to: http://tinyurl.com/pu72r2tPete Parsons forecasts below-average temperatures and above-average precipitation. Look for an early start to lower-elevation snowpack sometime in November.The National Weather Service predicts a dry, mild winter. Former Oregon State climatologist George Taylor follows with above-average temperatures, above-average precipitation and hardly any snow chances in the lowlands.Kyle Dittmer, hydrologist and meteorologist, Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission, calls for slightly above-average temperatures and somewhat drier, getting wetter as winter progresses. A weak or moderate El Niño will be a wild card. We tend to be drier than average and milder, with most storms going south of us, but we have had surprises with El Niño years.So, forecasters present a mixed bag, and so did the woolly bear caterpillars this year. They also were split about 50-50. I say flip a coin.Patrick Timm is a local weather specialist. His column appears Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.

Zurich reports a 228 mean gender pay gap for 2018

first_imgInsurance provider Zurich has reported a 22.8% mean gender pay gap for fixed hourly pay as at 5 April 2018; this is a decrease from 27.3%, as reported in 2017.The organisation reported gender pay gap data across its two legal entities, Zurich Employment Services and Zurich UK General Services, in line with the government’s reporting regulations and in time for the private sector submission deadline of 4 April 2019.The regulations require organisations with 250 or more employees to publish the differences in mean and median hourly rates of pay for male and female full-time employees, the gap in mean and median bonus pay for men and women, the proportions of male and female employees awarded bonus pay, and the proportions of male and female full-time employees in the lower, lower middle, upper middle and upper quartile pay bands.Zurich’s 2018 median gender pay gap for fixed hourly pay is 22.6%; this is a reduction from the 27.4% it reported in 2017.The organisation’s mean gender pay gap for bonuses paid in the 12 months up to 5 April 2018, which does not take into account part-time employees, is 51.9%; this is higher than last year’s figure of 47.2% The median gender pay gap for bonus payments is 44.9%, compared to 34.2% in 2017. Over the current reporting period, 95% of both male and female employees received bonus payments.Approximately three in 10 (31%) employees in the highest pay quartile at Zurich are female, compared to 33.3% in the second quartile, 44.3% in the third quartile and 62.7% in the lowest pay quartile. In total, 46% of the organisation’s workforce is female.Tulsi Naidu, UK chief executive officer at Zurich, said: “I am pleased to announce our gender pay gap has reduced to 22.8%. While this is a great step forward, there is clearly more to do to reduce both the hourly pay gap as well as the bonus gap.”Zurich attributes its gender pay gap to the fact that it continues to have fewer women employed in senior and technical roles. Zurich posited that fewer women than men apply for its senior roles in part because flexibility needs to be made more clearly available across all levels of the business.The organisation’s stated that its gender pay gap for bonuses is influenced by its number of female part-time employees; the majority (93%) are women, but the calculation for the bonus gender pay gap does not consider pro-rated bonus payments. Furthermore, the number of one-off payments for talent attraction or retention was higher in 2018 than 2017, which also contributed to Zurich’s increased bonus gap.To address these issues, Zurich will continue to promote its flexible working programme, FlexWork, operate intern, apprentice and graduate career entry routes, with 50% of 2018’s intake being female, and provide a youth skills programme, to encourage school students to take up a career in insurance.Zurich has been running a gender-focused employee group, Women’s Innovation Network (WIN), for the past five years. This now has 800 members in the UK, a quarter of whom are men. WIN has three focus areas: networking, cultural change and career development.The organisation has also looked to its recruitment practices, challenging its partners to deliver diverse shortlists for all management vacancies, using screening software to ensure adverts appeal to a wide range of applicants, and ensuring that all interviews are conducted by at least two managers, ideally with a mix of gender and ethnicity.Furthermore, Zurich’s UK executive team is measured on diversity and inclusion as part of their performance management objectives and required to sponsor at least one employee network group and mentor at least three employees.Naidu added: “We are confident that we will continue reducing our gender pay gap year on year. Not only is this simply the right thing to do, it is critical to our business performance. It enables us to attract and retain the best talent and makes us more representative of our customers.“Everyone should be able to succeed at Zurich, regardless of their background, and we are committed to ensuring this is the case.”last_img read more

Dolphins fans react to Tannehills knee injury

first_imgHope and optimism were what fans outside the Hard Rock Stadium chose to focus on as they walked out.Some, like Jeff Stein, pointed out the team’s recent six-game winning streak. “We need this. I mean, it’s been a tough decade or so,” he said. “This is probably the best year we’ve had in, who knows, 12, 13 years.”Fan Robert Zanzi believes, even with the prospect of Tannehill being sidelined, the team still has a shot at making the playoffs, but it is ultimately up to them. “The players have to show up and play. Last week, they didn’t show up,” he said. “If they play like they did the five previous weeks, then we have a chance. Hopefully they can pull through.”Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.
