Haines’ tap water safe, E. coli detected may have been false positive

first_imgHealth | Local Government | Southeast | SyndicatedHaines’ tap water safe, E. coli detected may have been false positiveJune 26, 2015 by Ed Schoenfeld, CoastAlaska News Share:Haines, Alaska. (Creative Commons photo by Alan Vernon)Haines‬ has safe tap water again, and E. coli previously detected in it may have been a false positive.The state Department of Environmental Conservation on Friday rescinded a boil-water notice issued Wednesday because new tests showed no E. coli bacteria in the water system.The bacteria can cause diarrhea, vomiting and more serious symptoms.Haines Borough Manager David Sosa got the good news Friday afternoon.“The test results on all the samples came back negative. And as a result, we received a lifting of the boil-water notice that was posted by DEC on the 25th,” he says.The notice affected homes, offices, restaurants and bars. Some residents turned to bottled water or springs around town.Officials said more positive test results would require flushing all or part of the municipal water system. That could have taken several days.“We know that they’ll be some additional testing for us but as far as the residents of Haines are concerned, they can drink their water. And we’ll just continue to work with DEC to make sure we’re taking all the steps necessary to provide for public health,” he says.Haines residents were told to boil their water for two minutes, which kills the bacteria. Notices were handed out door-to-door.Sosa says he wasn’t told why the earlier sample tested positive for E. coli. It could have been a false positive.Haines is a borough of about 2,400 people in northern Lynn Canal.Share this story:last_img read more

first_imgCrime & Courts | JuneauChristopher Strawn will defend himself in next month’s retrialSeptember 12, 2017 by Matt Miller, KTOO Share:The retrial for a man accused of murdering another man in the Mendenhall Valley is still on schedule for next month.Defendant Christopher Strawn listens to his defense attorney Eve Soutiere during jury selection in his homicide trial in Juneau in February 2017. (Photo by Matt Miller/KTOO)Christopher Strawn will stand trial October 2 for the death of Brandon Cook at the Kodzoff Acres Trailer Park nearly two years ago. The previous jury trial ended in a mistrial in February.Strawn fired his previous attorney, and he’s now representing himself with the assistance of a professional attorney as stand-by counsel. That means Strawn will be delivering opening statements, closing arguments and questioning witnesses on the stand during the upcoming trial.During a pre-trial hearing Monday, Strawn called for a continuance or a delay of the trial until February. He was still unclear about some legal issues related to his case, he said.Superior Court Judge Philip Pallenberg reminded Strawn they already discussed that scenario when he earlier decided to represent himself. Strawn will not have the background or experience of a professional attorney who went to law school and has tried cases in court.Pallenberg denied his request for a continuance. Strawn responded that he’ll be ready to if he has to.Strawn also asked for information regarding a shotgun that was discussed in the last trial, but was quickly determined as unrelated to his case.Prosecutors say they already passed on that information as part of pre-trial evidence discovery.He also filed for a protective order against a witness who was not disclosed in court.Strawn faces a variety of charges including first- and second-degree murder for the shooting death of Cook in October 2015.Share this story:last_img read more

OSC accuses Home Capital, execs of misleading disclosure

first_img CSA sets rules on non-GAAP financial reporting Share this article and your comments with peers on social media The Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) issued allegations against Toronto-based mortgage lender Home Capital Group Inc. (HCG) and several of its executives of disclosure violations for not promptly informing investors it had terminated several relationships with mortgage brokers amid concerns about their conduct. None of the allegations have been proven. Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Keywords Fraud,  Disclosure,  MortgagesCompanies Home Capital Group Inc., Ontario Securities Commission Court rules in favour of labour-sponsored venture fund against fund manager Related news Imposters among us, CSA warns Don’t believe the hype: BCSC proposes new rules for stock promoters James Langton The OSC has scheduled a hearing for May 4 that focuses on allegations against HCG, former CEO Gerald Soloway, former president Martin Reid and executive vice president and chief financial officer, Robert Morton, claiming that the firm failed to properly disclose the true cause of a drop in mortgage originations. According to the OSC, between February and July 2015, “HCG misled its shareholders as to the immediate and ongoing causes of the decline in originations. Internally, HCG knew it had terminated certain brokers because it had discovered fraud in HCG’s broker channels.” When the firm announced that it had terminated certain brokers in July 2015, “HCG’s stock price fell 18.9%, resulting in an approximate $600 million loss in market capitalization and significant investor harm,” the OSC notes. However, the firm, in its filings, the firm blamed a drop in originations on “external vagaries such as macroeconomics, seasonality and competitive markets,” the OSC says. “Within HCG, it was known that the decline could not be attributed solely to the external factors HCG outlined in its public disclosures.” As a result, the OSC alleges that the firm’s financial statements breach securities rules; that Soloway and Morton certified those misleading financials; and that Soloway and Reid made misleading statements in an earnings call with analysts in May 2015. HCG revealed in March that it had received an enforcement notice from the OSC concerning disclosure issues. At that time, the company said that it “believes that its disclosure satisfied applicable disclosure requirements.” Since then, HCG terminated Reid, who took over as CEO after Soloway retired in 2016. HCG issued a statement in response to the OSC’s allegations on Wednesday in which the company says “the allegations are without merit. The allegations will be vigorously defended.” Photo copyright: belchonock/123RFlast_img read more

Fed to buy as much government debt as needed to aid economy

first_img Keywords Coronavirus,  EconomyCompanies Federal Reserve Board Related news Economy grew at 5.6% annual rate in first quarter of year, Statistics Canada says “The coronavirus pandemic is causing tremendous hardship across the United States and around the world,” the Fed said in a statement. “Our nation’s first priority is to care for those afflicted and to limit the further spread of the virus. While great uncertainty remains, it has become clear that our economy will face severe disruptions. Aggressive efforts must be taken across the public and private sectors to limit the losses to jobs and incomes and to promote a swift recovery once the disruptions abate.”Financial markets sharply reversed themselves after the announcement. Dow Jones futures swung more than 1,000 points from about 500 down to a rise of roughly 500. The yield on the 10-year Treasury bond also fell, a sign that more investors are willing to purchase the securities.In its announcement, the Fed said it will establish three new lending facilities that will provide up to $300 billion by purchasing corporate bonds, a wider range of municipal bonds and securities tied to such debt as auto and real estate loans. It will also buy an unlimited amount of Treasury bonds and mortgage-backed securities to try to hold down borrowing rates and ensure those markets function smoothly.The Fed’s new go-for-broke approach is an acknowledgment that its previous plans to keep credit flowing smoothly, which included dollar limits, wouldn’t be enough in the face of the viral outbreak, which has brought the U.S. economy to a near-standstill as workers and consumers stay home. Last week, it said it would buy $500 billion of Treasuries and $200 billion of mortgage-backed securities, then quickly ran through roughly half those amounts by the end of the week.And on Monday, the New York Federal Reserve said it would purchase $75 billion of Treasuries and $50 billion of mortgage-backed securities each day this week.Ian Shepherdson, chief economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics, said it is clear that the Fed is now doing “whatever it takes.”“This is an all-out effort to ensure that the business sector can continue to exist even as economic activity temporarily collapses,” Shepherdson said.

These gave us a growing understanding of the Sri Lankan sustainable development storyline and aspirations,” said Faris Hadad-Zervos, World Bank Country Director for Maldives, Nepal and Sri Lanka. “The World Bank is a long-term partner for the people of Sri Lanka and is committed to help the country reach its full potential for the benefit of all its people.”The new World Bank management team paid courtesy calls to His Excellency the President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, Hon. Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa, Cabinet and State Ministers, Governor of the Central Bank of Sri Lanka, and Secretaries and senior officials associated with the current World Bank program in Sri Lanka.They also met with members of civil society from across the spectrum, private sector representatives, development partners as well as thought leaders to better understand Sri Lanka’s vast potential for sustainable growth.The visits included the port and other facilities in the Hambantota district to observe infrastructure development in the south. At the government hospital-Halthota in Kalutara district, they learned about the government effort to improve primary health care, integrating screening and management of non-communicable diseases, and strengthen promotive and outreach services. “The World Bank is mindful of the challenges the country is facing in this COVID19 era but will also keep our eye on the opportunities for sustainable recovery. We will leverage our knowledge, technical and financial resources to support Sri Lanka to build back better in the post-COVID era for inclusive and resilient growth,” said Chiyo Kanda, World Bank Country Manager for Maldives and Sri Lanka “We are in the process of updating our Systematic Country Diagnostic to deepen our understanding and inform our next Country Partnership Framework that will define the World Bank Group’s engagements with Sri Lanka for the next 4-5 years.”The Systematic Country Diagnostic is a thorough analysis, informed by consultations with a broad range of stakeholders, of the key challenges and opportunities in reducing poverty and boosting shared prosperity in a sustainable manner.In response to the COVID pandemic, the World Bank leveraged the existing portfolio and repurposed a significant portion to support the Government’s effort to reduce the impact of the pandemic. Providing urgently needed personal protective equipment (PPE), supporting vulnerable groups with temporary cash support, improving COVID-19 protection measures on public transport, facilitating tele-education for school children, and providing digital solutions to improve delivery of public services are among the emergency response activities already completed or ongoing.

first_imgPet registration due soon Mornington Peninsula Shire is reminding all cat and dog owners to ensure their pet registration is renewed by Saturday 10 April 2021.Pet ownership is a rewarding and beneficial experience for people of all ages. With the many benefits to owning a dog or cat come responsibilities, including the requirement to register your dog and cat with your council.The Domestic Animals Act 1994 directs that all cats and dogs over the age of three months must be microchipped and registered with the Shire.These are long standing responsibilities for pet owners – dog registration was introduced in 1970, followed by cat registration in 1994.Mornington Peninsula Shire provides many different services to support pet owners, funded directly from pet registration fees, such as:Off-leash dog areas located around the Shire for residents to train, exercise and play with their dogs.

Tasmanian firm steps into lucrative defence industry

first_imgTasmanian firm steps into lucrative defence industry Jeremy Rockliff,Minister for Advanced Manufacturing and Defence IndustriesTasmanian manufacturing company Jayben Group has made its first foray into the defence supply sector signing a Memorandum of Agreement with Boeing subsidiary Insitu Pacific.This is another success story through the Tasmanian Government’s Tasmanian Defence Industry Strategy, and further establishes our position as a world class defence and manufacturing hub.Insitu Pacific are currently tendering to supply tactical Unmanned Aerial Systems to the Australian Army under the LAND 129 investment program.This means that this agreement could see Jayben as part of the team supplying vital components to strengthen our national defence capability.Insitu Pacific is a recognised leader in the design of complete unmanned aerial systems including craft, sensors and software and is in the running for this multimillion dollar Australian Government contract.Jayben has been in operation for over 90 years and in Tasmania for 17 years, specialising in the manufacture of off-highway drivetrain solutions mainly for mining and agricultural vehicles.This is the first time they have actively looked to enter the defence sector since WWII.Importantly, if this bid is successful it will open up more international markets and opportunities for Jayben and Tasmania’s manufacturing sector, and will continue to raise the recognition of our high-quality bespoke manufacturing capabilities.A decision on the successful bidder for the Australian Army’s LAND 129 Phase 3 investment program is expected to be made this year.Jayben Group General Manager, Chris Johnson, says “We recognise the Tasmanian Government’s ongoing support, in particular for us to go to Land Forces as part of the Tasmanian stand, as well as associated networking events. These were beneficial to exposing Jayben to defence contracting and making industry connections.” /Public Release.
