HE Governor John Freeman statement on recent criminal activity

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppTurks and Caicos, July 31, 2017 – Grand Turk – “Recent incidents of aggravated burglaries have again given rise to understandable public concern. There are immediate but also wider dimensions to the increased incidence of violent crimes. Our thoughts – as always – are with the victims of recent crimes and their families.Facing down crime requires a combination of properly resourced law enforcement agencies, a sustained determination to deal with wider challenges – including from illegal migration and other factors – and a due commitment not just to imprisonment but to the rehabilitation of offenders.Most immediately we need to ensure the RTCIPF have the resources they need to do their job. I have discussed this requirement with the Premier and with the Commissioner. Much has already been put in train and following recent incidents additional and specialized support (including from outside the Islands) is being put in place already or to be examined urgently. It would not be in the public interest to discuss all of the particular steps being undertaken.In terms of the wider challenges and factors, the TCIG has already announced new measures in statements made recently in the House of Assembly.Defeating the criminals remains a responsibility we hold in common. All responsible agencies and departments discussed current crime and other security challenges in the National Security Committee (NSC) which met yesterday. A meeting of the NSC Advisory Council is also being scheduled. We have also benefited from the UK-sponsored Security Needs Assessment of the Overseas Territories, including of the TCI.The effort to deal with violent crime is ongoing. More resources are being dedicated to security needs and more will be available in the future. And all of us with responsibilities for security are committed to seeing the task through.”Press Release: TCIG Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:last_img read more

Everton boss frustrated by defeat

first_imgThe Everton Marco Silva was unhappy after receiving a goal and then seeing how Kurt Zouma was sent off.A single goal by Andre Gay gave Watford the 1-0 victory over Everton in the English Premier League on Saturday.And the Blues are now in the ninth position of the table with 33 points, after only nine wins, six draws and 12 defeats.This has led coach Marco Silva very frustrated.“When you do not achieve the result and do not score goals with the chances we created, it is a big frustration for us,” Silva told the club’s official website.“The first half was balanced, they created one good chance and we had a very good chance with Cenk Tosun.”“Second half was the same again. They started to create more problems with their long balls,” he commented.“I felt Andre Gomes and Gana were getting tired after we played on Wednesday night. Watford had one week to prepare for the game.”“I changed Andre and was preparing to put on Bernard when they scored,” Silva continued.“We reacted [to going behind].”Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“We had two balls off the bar and one clear chance for Dominic,” the manager said.“We created enough chances to score but were not effective [with our finishing]. Sometimes in these moments, something can happen – but it is only us who can work more to change things.”“When you play away and create the chances we did – and clear chances in some moments – we have to be more effective,” the Everton boss commented.“In one moment they will start to go in and we’ll start to win matches.”“But there is just one way: work more, become more confident and look forward and try to change things,” he added.“It is a good moment to rest the players, then bring them back to prepare for the next match against Cardiff and the derby against Liverpool.”💬 | The boss delivers his post-match verdict: A frustrating afternoon. #EFCawayday— Everton (@Everton) February 9, 2019last_img read more

North Yorkshire County Council offers green cars

first_imgNorth Yorkshire County Council has offered its 18,000 members of staff a car salary sacrifice scheme since 2010, but over the years, it has been necessary for the council to adapt its offering to better suit its workforce.Since it was first introduced, the scheme has expanded to offer staff more choice. For instance, employees now have 4,200 cars to choose from, including a selection of green and low-emission vehicles.The scheme also closely monitors mileage and provides those who are at risk of going over their limit with the option to change their agreement to receive an early notification in order to help them avoid higher costs.Sarah France-Gorton, principal adviser, resourcing and reward at North Yorkshire County Council, says: “An important benefit for staff using this scheme is the hassle free factor; everything is included except fuel. Another important consideration is the cost of running older less economical cars and its impact on the environment; the use of the salary sacrifice scheme brings benefits on both fronts.She adds: “Since the implementation date, the marketing focus has been around environmentally friendly cars, product range and the salary sacrifice savings made.”last_img read more

Sheriff Koutoujian Welcomes DA Ryan For Visit To Specialized Treatment Units At

first_imgBILLERICA, MA — Sheriff Peter J Koutoujian recently welcomed Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan to the Middlesex Jail & House of Correction for a tour of specialized housing units for young adult offenders and incarcerated military Veterans.“I want to thank DA Ryan for taking the time to come inside and learn about the incredible work our staff is doing on a daily basis to change the trajectory for those in our Housing Unit for Military Veterans (HUMV) and our new People Achieving Change Together (P.A.C.T.) Program,” said Sheriff Koutoujian.  “These are cutting edge initiatives designed to address the unique needs of the individuals in these populations.”“The work the Sheriff is doing with these two units is critical in reducing the impact the criminal justice system has on people’s lives. In Middlesex County we are taking a truly collaborative approach which includes both offering alternatives to prosecution and programs like these that encourage treatment and rehabilitation. By shifting the focus from a solely punitive system we are helping to support system involved individuals with the goal of reducing recidivism,” continued District Attorney Ryan.P.A.C.T., which opened in February, is for offenders ages 18-24.  The unit was constructed in collaboration with the Vera Institute of Justice with a goal of reducing recidivism amongst individuals in that age group.  Middlesex is the first local jail in the country to collaborate with Vera on such a unit, and only the second agency nationally.  According to data from the Council of State Governments Justice Center, 18-to 24-year-olds released from Massachusetts correctional facilities have higher recidivism rates than other offenders, with 52 percent of those released from houses of correction and 56 percent of those released by the department of correction were re-incarcerated within three years.HUMV was established in January 2016, and is the only unit of its kind in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for incarcerated Veterans.  In May, HUMV was highlighted during an event at the Library of Congress and is one of four jail-based programs for Veterans included in a National Institute of Corrections (NIC) document (“Barracks Behind Bars”) released at the event.  A recent review found that of all individuals who had spent at least 30 days in HUMV, and were released to the community, just five percent had recidivated since its inception.(NOTE: The above press release is from the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

NDTV gets partial relief in income tax case June quarter performance worsens

first_imgCBI conducts raids at NDTV founder Pronnoy Roy’s residence in New Delhi on June 5, 2017.IANSNews channel NDTV got a reprieve from the Delhi High Court in connection with a Rs 428 crore demand raised by the income tax authorities even as the Delhi-based media outlet reported worsening financial performance for the June 2017 quarter (Q1). Hearing a plea on Tuesday filed by NDTV against the demand raised on July 21, Justices S Muralidhar and Pratibha M Singh, while agreeing that there was a prima facie case against the channel, questioned the income tax department for issuing the demand order and a show-cause notice (for not paying the amount) on the same day.Also read: Interesting facts about Prannoy Roy’s news channel NDTV and its journalists “How can you pass penalty order when no time has been given for payment of the amount which was determined on July 26,” the court asked the I-T department, represented by Additional Solicitor General (ASG) Sanjay Jain, according to a PTI report. NDTV was represented by Harish Salve.The case will now be heard on August 21.The July 26 demand order by the department was based on the decision of July 14 decision of the Income Tax Appellate Tribunal (ITAT) that actually ended up creating an ambiguity.While the ITAT upheld the department’s decision to add Rs 642 crore as unexplained money to the channel’s income for the assessment year (AY) 2009-10, prompting the July 26 order, it had remanded back three other issues pertaining to the same AY, giving the channel the opportunity to challenge the demand order.Strangely, Jain had appeared for NDTV in 2011 in a case pertaining to defamation charges filed by the channel against MJ Akbar, senior journalist and now a minister in Narendra Modi government, for reporting on the channel’s alleged financial irregularities in the ICICI Bank loan repayment case.In 2010, Akbar had written articles on the loan repayment case in The Sunday Guardian, prompting the channel to claim Rs 25 crore in damages. NDTV had said in its petition that the journalist “created a false impression amongst the public that the plaintiff (the channel) is involved in such illegitimate acts” by using words such as “malfeasance” and “loan chicanery.” The case was disposed off by Delhi High Court in December 2011, restraining Akbar from “republishing or re-circulating” the article published in December 2010 in The Sunday Guardian.For the June quarter, NDTV’s stand-alone income dropped 36 percent sequentially to Rs 69.9 crore from Rs 109.6 crore in March 2017 quarter while the net loss stood at Rs 15.94 crore.The NDTV stock was trading at Rs 45.15 on the BSE at around 11 am on Wednesday, close to its 52-week low of Rs 44.60. The channel is headed by Dr Prannoy Roy and his wife Radhika Roy. As of March 31, 2017, Prannoy Roy and his wife Radhika Roy, the two key promoters, held 15.94 percent and 16.32 percent, respectively, in the company.last_img read more

UN ramps up aid delivery for Rohingyas

first_imgThe major Rohingya influx has created a humanitarian emergency in Bangladesh as the forcibly displaced citizens of Rakhine state of Myanmar are largely depending on humanitarian assistance for shelter, food, water and other life-saving needs, said the International Organisation for Migration (IOM), reports UNB.”The seriousness of the situation cannot be over-emphasised,” Sarat Dash, chief of Bangladesh Mission of IOM, a United Nations migration agency, said in a press release.”These people are malnourished and there is insufficient access to clean water and sanitation in many of the spontaneous sites. They are highly vulnerable. They have fled conflict, experienced severe trauma and are now living in extremely difficult conditions,” underscored Dash.With many of the new arrivals requiring immediate health assistance, agencies have appealed for USD 48 million to scale up primary health care in the new settlements over the next six months, according to UN News Centre.”The risk of an outbreak of communicable disease is very high given the crowded living conditions and the lack of adequate clean water and sanitation,” said IOM senior regional health officer Patrick Duigan, pointing out that maternal, newborn and child health care are also in desperately short supply.According to the information of Inter Sector Coordination Group (ISCG), an IOM-hosted aid agency, an estimated 536,000 people have fled Myanmar and arrived in Cox’s Bazar over the past 47 days to avoid persecution carried out by Myanmar army.The Number spiked again when some 15,000 more crossed into Bangladesh between 9 to 11 October.Prior to the August influx, infrastructure and basic services in Cox’s Bazar were already under strain as it hosted over 2,00,000 forcibly displaced Rohingyas.last_img read more

Environmental Regulators Rejected NASAs Offer To Monitor Air Pollution After Harvey

first_img To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: X Listen An investigative story by the LA Times reports that NASA’s planned mission to help with the analysis of pollution levels in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey was cancelled after the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) expressed misgivings about the space agency’s involvement in the efforts to collect pollution data.According to the LA Times reporting, which reviewed emails from the EPA and the TCEQ, NASA offered to deploy a DC-8 airplane equipped with sophisticated air samplers to monitor pollution levels over the vast area in Texas impacted by Harvey.Susanne Rust, one of the reporters who wrote the story, told Houston Matters on Wednesday that EPA and TCEQ officials “were concerned that the data might be confusing, that it could overlap with their own and cause more confusion or could conflict with their data.” Rust said the EPA has told her they were in Texas “at the pleasure of the state.”Detection powerShe added that the airplane NASA was proposing to fly over Texas can identify approximately 450 types of chemical compounds. “This NASA plane would have flown the entire region and would have been able to take a really broad picture and give a much broader understanding of what the air quality was like,” Rust said.During Harvey’s aftermath, the TCEQ and the EPA used ground technology and also flew a single-engine plane that took photos and used infrared technology to monitor pollution levels.Elena Craft, a senior director with the Environmental Defense Fund, told Houston Matters that “having an instrument like the one that NASA had proposed would have helped to provide a more comprehensive picture of the air pollution in the region.”Craft noted that the number of irregular emissions of air contaminants during the storm’s aftermath equates to what would normally happen in a six-month period.She said the decision by the EPA and TCEQ wasn’t the right one, because “as scientists, we always want more data, it helps provide a clearer picture of the true situation.”TCEQ’s and EPA’s responseThe TCEQ said in a statement that the type of data the NASA plane collects isn’t useful to determine impacts to public health because “it monitors air quality at flying altitude, not ground levels where people are located.”The agency added that NASA’s offer of data collection was made two weeks after the storm and they were proposing to fly even later.The statement also said that the data collected by the TCEQ and the EPA through various means, including helicopters equipped with Forward-Looking Infrared (FLIR) cameras, the EPA’s Airborne Spectral Photometric Environmental Collection Technology (ASPECT) plane, the TCEQ’s air monitoring network and investigator teams on the ground, “were useful in determining sources of concern so that teams could be sent to investigate further.”The EPA also sent a statement highlighting the resources they deployed during the response efforts, including the missions the ASPECT plane performed by monitoring a series of fires at a chemical facility owned by Arkema in Crosby. center_img Air Force photo by Tech.

Steam The Discovery Update 20

first_imgSteam The Discovery Update 2.0 by Martin Brinkmann on November 08, 2016 in Games – 3 commentsValve published a new version of Steam Store today called The Discovery Update 2.0 that is designed to give users “more control” over their browsing experience.When you open the main Steam store site on the Web or in the Steam client software you will notice several changes right away.The left side features a new quick access listing if the width of the Store interface is sufficient for that. It leads to popular and common destinations such as recommendations, top sellers, or recently updated.The featured and recommended section has been updated as well. You do get a list of games in rotation still but Valve added four additional screenshots to each game and more information on top of that. The screenshots are displayed in the main pane when you hover the mouse over them.Information include tags, and why the game is recommended. If you are signed in, you get a small arrow icon in the upper right corner of the screen to add a game to the wishlist, to tell Valve that you are not interested in that particular game, and an option to open your preferences.When you scroll down you get additional new items of interest. The sidebar menu lists recently viewed items for instance, and below the featured sections are offers, games that friends play, and the discovery queue.This is followed by a list of curators and their game suggestions, list of games that you own that were updated recently, and the lists that highlight new, popular and upcoming releases.This list has been updated as well. You get screenshots for the selected item for instance, the same small arrow icon on the game’s thumbnail, and tags listed there for each game.It is debatable whether the new Store Store interface is an improvement over the old user interfac. While it has been certainly designed with an “how do we push sales even more” attitude, some of the new options or changes improve the user experience regardless of that, while others may hamper it.For instance, pushing game updates near the top is a good option for gamers to discover games that they own that got updated.One issue that gamers may have with the store on the other hand is that it is now a lot harder to display the top games listings as you have to scroll down quite a bit to get there.There is also no option to hide certain modules. If you are not interested in the discovery queue, friend recommendations, or offers, you will still have to scroll through them to go to other parts of the Store that you are interested in.One new feature that Valve implemented but has not mentioned explicitly is the new store content’s preferences page. There you may add up to three tags that you want to see less of in the Store, and make certain choices in regards to the products that you want to see.You can use it to disable Virtual Reality (VR), Early Access, Pre-Purchase, Software, or Videos & Movies suggestions for instance, or block products with violent or sexual content.Three tags is not an awful lot, but the option to hide certain recommendations, e.g. VR, is certainly a welcome addition.Now You: What’s your take on the Steam Store updated?SummaryArticle NameSteam The Discovery Update 2.0DescriptionValve published a new version of Steam Store today called The Discovery Update 2.0 that is designed to give users “more control” over their browsing experience.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

Driving in Costa Rica The rules of the road

first_imgFourth in a series of columns by Steven Ferris, a Costa Rican attorney with extensive, direct experience in the Costa Rican judicial system, now in private practice.As a tourist in Costa Rica, if you have a valid driver’s license, you are legal to drive here during your stay. Nonetheless, this is contingent upon your immigration status. Your ability to use a foreign license only applies within the time period you have been allowed to stay.For example, if your tourist visa (stamped in your passport with the number of days written in) is for 30 days, you can only use that license within that time period. If for some reason you remain in the country beyond your visa limitation, not only are you in violation of your immigration status, but also your ability to drive legally is null and void. If you were to have an accident, you will go to court as if you were driving without a license.The Traffic Police (Policia de Tránsito) are known to conduct routine stops to check documentation. If you show them your foreign license and passport, they will check to see if you’re driving within the time limit of your visa.It is often recommended that you not travel around the country with your official passport, and carry a copy of the pertinent pages instead. Recent police policy instructs officers to accept a legible copy of passports. However, it is still up to the individual officer whether to accept the copy or not. If he or she, for some reason, decides the copy isn’t acceptable, you may have to go to your hotel or wherever you’re staying, with the police officer. In almost every case this isn’t necessary, and passport copies are acceptable during routine traffic stops.It’s also important to keep in mind what the proper procedure is if you have an accident. In Costa Rica, when involved in an accident, you are encouraged to not allow any of the vehicles involved to be moved. They’re supposed to stay on the scene, without being moved, no matter what disruption you may be causing to others trying to pass. You may very well have experienced this phenomenon wherein a simple fender bender results in two or more stationary cars in the middle of the road.As soon as the accident occurs, you should call the Transit Authority at 911, as well as your insurance carrier. If you’re renting, your rental agency will probably spell all this out for you, and your insurance documents are probably in the glove compartment. You will be asked (by phone) where the accident took place and if there are any injuries. An officer will be sent, but this may take a while depending on where you are. Waits of 45 minutes to two hours are not uncommon.While waiting, you should consider writing down some information, such as the other driver’s license plate numbers, taking pictures, and getting everyone’s phone number. This could be invaluable later on.When the Traffic Inspector finally shows up, your job is to give your version of events. He or she will write everything down, including your story and all vehicle information, and ask you to sign it.You are not obligated to sign, but if everything appears to be in order you certainly should. You’ll be given a copy that you will be required to present in Traffic Court within 10 days.As far as the insurance company is concerned, their agent is supposed to show up at the accident scene. Your declaration of what happened will be documented and you’ll be asked to sign that as well. That signature is obligatory if you want your claim to be honored. If it’s a rental car, you should probably call the rental agency as soon as possible, and they’ll likely help you through the whole process.Overall, what you need to do in the case of an accident is pretty much the same as anywhere else. The one difference, depending on where you’re from, is that you’re not supposed to move your car until an officer of the law tells you to do so.No big deal! Happy driving!Steven Ferris is a member of the board of directors of The Tico Times’ parent company.Want to start a business in Costa Rica?

MidTier Credit Score Lending Declines Drastically Among Repeat Borrowers

first_img Eligiblity Requirements Fannie Mae FICO Score Mid-Tier Credit Score 2015-12-04 Staff Writer in Daily Dose, Data, Government, Headlines, Market Studies, News, Origination Mid-Tier Credit Score Lending Declines Drastically Among Repeat Borrowers December 4, 2015 569 Views center_img Mortgage lending to borrowers with mid-tier credit scores has severely declined since the mid-2000s, even after Fannie Mae made eligibility changes.Fannie Mae defines a mid-tier credit score as a FICO between 680 and 740 in its newest study from its Pricing and Underwriting Mortgage Analytics group.The study determined that Fannie Mae’s eligibility changes had little impact on mortgage lending volume, especially to mid-tier borrowers. In addition, repeat borrowers are suffering the most from the drop in mid-tier lending than first-time homebuyers.”This decline in repeat borrowers is strongest along the U.S. coasts, where the housing crisis diminished borrowers’ abilities to retain or gain equity in their current homes, reducing their likelihood of selling their existing homes and purchasing new ones,” the report stated.The study showed that first-time homebuyers are up by 45 percent in 2014 compared to 2002, while repeat homebuyers are down by 40 percent over the same time period.Fannie Mae’s Consequences of Declining Mid-Tier FICO Credit Score Lending:Lower FICO can lead to existing households being potentially “locked” in to their mortgage and property.These borrowers might not even be able to benefit from low mortgage rates by turning over their existing property and purchasing a new one if their equity levels are low or if they are under water.Some homeowners who locked in lower-than-current market rates on their mortgage may have less incentive to move, since any home purchased today would become more expensive than their current residence based purely on prevailing interest rates.And some homeowners who could benefit from current low mortgage rates may even choose not to get back in the housing market if they have seasoned their loan and are amortizing mostly principal.Stagnant wages and the slow recovery of housing prices have also played a role by impacting the income and wealth of home buyers and reducing the likelihood of changing their residence.”Policy changes that expand “access to credit” programs to include repeat borrowers may encourage home purchase activity within the mid-tier FICO segment,” Fannie Mae concluded. “For borrowers who lost significant value on their property, carefully designed renovation products may provide some level of support. This would not only help borrowers to achieve their home of choice, but also would increase house values and could open up avenues for possible future home sales and turnover buyers.”Click here to view the complete report.

first_imgFt. Lauderdale, FL – Guests sailing aboard Silver Spirit’s 91-day Grand Inaugural Voyage this month are set to enjoy an exclusive evening of entertainment when multiple Grammy Award-nominee Michael Feinstein takes to the stage. The performance will follow a gala bon voyage dinner to be held aboard Silver Spirit in Fort Lauderdale on January 20, the day before the ship embarks on an expansive journey exploring over 20 countries and 45 ports throughout the Americas — for the very first time.“Every detail of Silver Spirit’s Grand Inaugural Voyage has been designed with a highly discerning and experienced traveler in mind, and we want the onboard entertainment experience to be of equally exceptional caliber,” said Christian Sauleau, Silversea’s executive vice president of vessel operations. “We’re delighted to have such an extraordinary performer as Michael Feinstein on hand to help us celebrate the launch of our new flagship and what is sure to be the voyage of a lifetime for our guests.”An outstanding vocalist and pianist, Michael Feinstein is arguably the single most knowledgeable and dedicated musical anthropologist and archivist the Great American Songbook has ever known. Renowned for finding “lost,” older songs and breathing new life into them, his repertoire includes songs by such great songwriters as George Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Johnny Mercer, and Duke Ellington.His 150 plus shows a year have included Carnegie Hall, the Hollywood Bowl and major concert halls, as well as the White House and Buckingham Palace. At his nightclub in Manhattan, Feinstein’s at Loews Regency, a showcase for top-drawer cabaret performers, Feinstein plays to a sold-out crowd. The Sinatra Project – his new CD from Concord Records which celebrates the musical sensibilities of “Old Blue Eyes” – earned Feinstein his fifth Grammy Award nomination in 2009. He is currently preparing the PBS-TV series “Michael Feinstein’s American Popular Song” – to start airing in 2010 – in which Feinstein discovers treasures of the Great American Songbook around the world.The newest addition to Silversea’s ultra-luxury, six-ship fleet, Silver Spirit debuted in Europe in December and will host several days of inaugural activities in Fort Lauderdale when the 540-guest, all-suite ship arrives on January 19. Among the highlights is the Christening Ceremony scheduled to take place on January 21.Silversea Cruises is recognized as an innovator in the luxury segment, offering guests large-ship amenities aboard its intimate, all-suite vessels: Silver Cloud, Silver Wind, Silver Shadow, Silver Whisper and Silver Spirit — all designed to offer an atmosphere of conviviality and casual elegance.
