The deal, which was backed by other CDOs that were backed by slices of subprime mortgages, was managed by Credit Suisse Alternative Capital.Citigroup said in a regulatory filing earlier this month that it “continues to cooperate fully in response to subpoenas and requests for information from the Securities and Exchange Commission”.Spokeswoman Danielle Romero-Apsilos declined to comment on the specific probe yesterday but said in an email: “It’s been widely reported that there are ongoing industry-wide investigations into CDO-related matters.”Shareholders have also sued Citigroup over its CDOs and other securities, claiming the bank knowingly misled them about the value of and risk related to the securities.A judge dismissed parts of the lawsuit earlier this month, but allowed the investors to pursue some of their CDO-related claims.

SisonPosted Mar 14, 2012 [Anglican Journal] The Anglican Church of Canada has joined forces with a First Nations community 370 miles north of Thunder Bay, Ontario, to challenge a stake made at Sherman Lake by God’s Lake Resources (GLR), a Toronto-based gold mining company.The conflict erupted in October when a mining exploration camp was set up by Sherman Lake without the knowledge or consent of the Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug First Nation (KI) community. The area also holds grave sites where locals, most of them Anglican, are buried.On March 6, National Indigenous Anglican Bishop Mark MacDonald joined the KI at their Toronto protest rally.  “What KI is interested in is free, prior and informed consent,” MacDonald told the Anglican Journal. “They would like to establish a framework with the government about what that means and how that would work out prior to exploration.”In a statement, GLR says it is willing to have a “negotiated agreement” with the KI but that under the new Mining Act, claimholders are required to consult with First Nations, not seek permission.In December, Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, and MacDonald sent a letter to Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty urging his government to abide by Article 32 of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People. This document calls on states to “consult and cooperate in good faith” with indigenous peoples regarding projects that affect their lands and other resources.“We respectfully ask that you stop the God’s Lake Resources mining exploration until a full consultation can take place,” said the letter. “…For us, this is a basic matter of indigenous rights and, now, religious freedom.”The Anglican leaders also expressed concern that the issue involves “the possible misuse of a cemetery. “ The church is concerned that “these graves not be put to a position where they may be desecrated or disturbed in some way,” said MacDonald. “We’re talking about the religious sensibilities of the KI and also of the Anglican church.”MacDonald said the church is hoping to have a conversation with the government regarding the grave sites, which have been there for five to seven decades.On March 5, the provincial government announced that it was withdrawing 8950 square miles of land near the vicinity of KI from prospecting and mining “to give clarity to the province’s mineral exploration industry and to avoid future disagreements over the land in question.” The withdrawn lands do not affect the GLR’s mining claim.KI Chief Donny Morris told Wawatay News that the withdrawal took his community by surprise since land claim negotiations between First Nations people and the government are at a standstill. “I think they jumped ahead of us. It should be a historical event when you withdraw that much land,” Morris said. “There should have been meetings about it. Instead they are telling us what’s best for us.”MacDonald urged the government to begin the conversation, saying, “We’re interested in a good solution for all parties concerned.” Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Youth Minister Lorton, VA Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Politicians: A privileged existence

first_img Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Reply Reply Please enter your comment! Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 5 COMMENTS I just heard the verdict read on tv in the Corrine Brown trial…..she was found guilty on 18 counts. This makes me so very angry because she has been treated so differently than others in similar positions of power who have allegedly done far worse corrupt dealings and they allegedly CONTINUE to get away with everything! The Trump administration’s questionable practices, and allegedly Trump and his own family’s alleged shady business dealings, and Trump’s alleged ties to the Russians, and his firing of the of the FBI guy who was investigating it all!!! Also alleged corruption right in our own state’s administration! It sure looks HIGHLY SUSPIOUS to me, that jurors could not come to terms on her guilt until all of a sudden one juror complains of another juror’s comments, something a juror had said about “higher beings”, then the juror is dismissed, and a new one comes on board, and pronto, a quick decision of guilt is rendered! Mighty funny when that juror was dismissed, all of a sudden the jurors are all in agreement now, as to Ms. Brown’s guilt.??????? Was the juror replaced because the juror did not believe Ms. Brown was guilty or was unsure of her guilt???? LOOKS THAT WAY TO ME!!!! Where there is smoke, there is fire……seems very suspect to me!!!!!! If this guilty verdict sticks, after an appeal, I hope the whole damn Republican pack is happy, because if they are some of the ones in power who are allegedly getting away with corrupt crap, I hope they join her in prison too, with a possible 350 years in prison, and someone can get a grip on this country, where certain rich people are not above the law and receive a different standard of treatment. It is absolutely ridiculous what is going on in our country!!! Today I heard it was 350 years Ms. Brown could get in prison, instead of 135 years…..I told you wrong, when I stated 135 years above. Like it matters at her age??? She didn’t kill anyone. Maybe she deserves punishment, maybe not, but a possible sentence like that?? Or to even imply a sentence like that???? Many murderers or hideous violent acts by sadistic people get way less time, and I hear the prosecutor worked on her case for two years! I guess his office has lots and lots of time to devote to prosecuting her case, instead of taking on all the murderers, rapists, and child sexual predators, etc. Too bad they can’t prosecute the sickening bunch that just gathered on the White House lawn to celebrate the sorry low-down Trump healthcare act victory that isn’t even a victory yet. It makes me despise them that much more!!! Enemies of the people, is what they are!!! Trump and his bunch of idiots are ruining our country, and fattening his own wallet at the same time, and looking out after his equally despicable fat cat ultra rich buddies. The greedy bunch! Mama Mia OpinionBy Greg Jackson, Esq.In following the legal saga involving former Congressional member, Corrine Brown, and persons working in her office before her failed re-election campaign, it is difficult to separate what she is in trial for from what other elected officials do or have done. Granted, not many have started a non-profit organization for the intent purpose of using the funds collected as a personal expense account; but the manner in which she went about collecting the funds and the privilege she demanded due to her position were all too familiar. How often have we seen elected officials using their influence to further causes or issues that benefit them in some form or fashion, but does nothing to better the lives of their constituents?If the allegations against Corrine Brown are true, then in the court of public opinion she represents all that is wrong, and yet all too often accepted, in politics. Although there are laws in place that provide guidance on what elected officials can or cannot do through their title or influence, does anyone doubt that many elected officials benefit from using their title and influence? Heck, some people even say that is one of the main reasons people go into politics and for some that is okay; but for me, not so much. One situation I recall while working as an Assistant Attorney General was when a State Senator called and asked for a “favor.” His aide’s husband had gone out and purchased a truck and after driving it for a few months was not happy with the terms. So, the State Senator wanted me to help terminate the contract, to which I responded I could not. If that State Senator, were not a State Senator, I can almost bet he would never have had the nerve to ask for such a thing; but you see, privilege affects people’s common senses sometimes.Those of us who follow politics very closely have seen the person from less than impressive beginnings break into politics and all of a sudden become a consultant or end up with jobs that they are not qualified to hold. Similar to those who gain an identity from being elected, are those who take on an attitude of entitlement once elected to public office. The essence of public service is to serve others; however, the accepted behavior is that elected officials are there to be served; and this is where the problem lies.When an elected official has become bigger than the community they serve or more important than the people they represent, crazy, unethical things can happen. The entitlement attitude also appears to be infectious and spreads to the people working for the elected official, as well as the associates of the elected official.The Corrine Brown case is of particular interest because at one-time Congresswoman Brown represented parts of Central Florida and her tag line was “Corrine Delivers!” But, I guess no one ever really thought to ask the cost of her “delivery services” or who her deliveries benefited. According to the U.S. Government, it appears that the cost of those services was one non-profit organization, minus the proper designation with the IRS to serve as her personal account for travel and parties. As the election season kicks up in Apopka, one has to wonder if another Corrine-type situation will come about. Many new faces are hoping to assume positions of “power” that we know very little about, except what they tell us or want us to know about them. As such, I implore each of you to be very cognizant of the other “Corrines” out there. Our community cannot stand many more questionable situations like this when the only thing delivered, at the end of the day, is embarrassment – in my humble opinion TAGSGreg Jackson Previous articleHow to make more money when you sell your homeNext articleApopka Burglary Report and Map Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR You know Greg, I am going to uphold Ms. Corrine Brown. She has said that her charges are a “political witch hunt” and darn, I have to agree with her! I don’t have all the info to determine if she is guilty or not guilty, but what stands out to me is that she is not being treated in the same fashion as other well-known politicians who have allegedly done some very questionable dealings with money and charities, and campaign funds, and etc. Allegedly, namely Pam Bondi, Donald Trump, and the former second in command under Gov. Rick Scott previously, Ms. Carroll, I believe, was her name, the Lieu. Gov. who was alledgedly involved with the gambling fiasco, Allied Veterans, no charges there. Scott’s own hospital……….. $$$$$ charging it to the US government funds of Medicare allegedly. And lots and lots of others in elected office, all across the states! They have said they are going to put Ms. Brown in prison for 135 years! Well guess what, it AIN’T GONNA happen! Ms. Brown was a very good representative of the people for a very long time, and had an excellent voting record, as far as I am concerned. She has been ridiculed to death, but she is a strong woman, and they are not going to break her! I don’t know what it is, and why they are so gung-ho on putting her in prison with all these other high profile politicians strutting around and getting away with everything. I don’t know if it is her strong “no holds barred personality”, because she truly is being discriminated against because she is black, or whether it is because she is a Democrat in a GOP majority, but something is going on! That is my opinion of the situation as to why Ms. Brown is being treated so harshly when others aren’t even facing the music. Mama Mia You have entered an incorrect email address!

Free Mumia Abu-Jamal now!

admin No Comments

first_imgThis statement was issued by the Prisoners Solidarity Committee of Workers World Party. Contact the PSC at [email protected]  THERE IS  ONLY ONE WAY THE POLICE DICTATORSHIP OVER PHILADELPHIA CAN BEGIN TO END AND THE MESSAGE OF THE GLOBAL UPRISING BE HEARD: FREE MUMIA ABU-JAMAL NOW!At this moment of a global uprising against systemic police racism sparked by the public torture and lynching of George Floyd, this injustice of historic and global significance must finally be reckoned with. If that is not done, there is no way that Philadelphia, or this country, can move forward from this moment toward a future without racist police terror. The prison gates must open, and Mumia Abu-Jamal — the most famous political prisoner in the world and a living symbol of the struggle against racist police repression and for the Black Liberation movement — must walk through to freedom. And it must happen now!There can be no further real discussion in Philadelphia about reining in police racism until Mumia is free. If the system fails to do that, then the system is the enemy of those marching everywhere for justice. The injustice systemRemoving Frank Rizzo’s statue from Center City was a symbolic gesture. But it means nothing if Mumia is not freed at once. Unless that is done, the entire political and judicial establishment of Philadelphia will remain unrepentant accomplices to structural police racism. They will remain enemies of history and will remain under the dictatorship of the police.Mumia Abu-Jamal is a former leader of the Philadelphia Black Panther Party, a supporter of the MOVE organization, a prominent award-winning journalist —  and a political prisoner for nearly four decades. In the early 1980s, Abu-Jamal was the president of the Philadelphia chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists, and his news broadcasts and commentaries were heard on numerous radio stations.Mumia  consistently criticized Rizzo’s racist policies on public radio and in the press. Rizzo, as a former police commissioner, was one of the most notoriously outspoken racist figures in the 20th century. He declared war on the Black movement in Philadelphia. Rizzo’s police created a list of 18,000 activists to keep intelligence on, most of whom were Black radicals like Mumia. He developed a police file on Mumia — over 800 pages long — of information gathered via wiretaps and other counterintelligence practices. That racist harassment and anti-Mumia sentiment remain the cause of Mumia’s incarceration to this day.Though Rizzo is gone, the Fraternal Order of Police has continued the campaign against Mumia.The FOP, representing the Philadelphia police and police across the country, has demanded that Mumia Abu-Jamal never leave his prison cell alive.The FOP has so much political power —  the kind of power that politicians and judges are deathly afraid of — that the police are essentially able to impose a dictatorship over the entire system. It is hard to find a politician in Pennsylvania, including Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney and most of the state’s supreme court justices, who has not received FOP campaign contributions and endorsements.Struggle in the streets aims to break police dictatorshipIn truth, the global uprising in the streets is more than anything else a struggle to break the dreadful political power of the police and organizations like the FOP that represent the police. This vast power enables the police to abuse, beat and kill Black and Brown people with impunity, to lie in order to protect themselves from prosecution, and to lie and conspire with prosecutors to send people to death row and into the prison-industrial complex.Were it not for this FOP dictatorship, Mumia Abu-Jamal would have been freed a long, long time ago. The police dictatorship has demanded that none of the voluminous evidence of judicial misconduct in Mumia’s trial be acted upon, that witnesses not be heard and that a new trial never be granted. Earlier this year the FOP used its political leverage over the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to coerce the court to accept a rare King’s Bench Petition calling for them to investigate allegations that Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner was biased toward Mumia in handling his current appeals, forcing another unnecessary delay in his appeal.Because of the police dictatorship, Mumia has spent the last 38 years either on death row or in maximum security. Mumia’s health has been declining due to the neglect of prison officials, making his immediate freedom even more urgent. After spending more than 40 years in prison, Mumia’s good friend, Delbert Africa, one of the MOVE 9, recently died only six months after his release because his health issues were neglected by prison officials.Mumia’s imprisonment is part of the police war against the struggle for Black Liberation. The war against the Black movement and the dictatorship of the police over the legal system — cannot and will not end — unless Mumia is freed. The system must choose now: What side of history is it on?FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

As County Approaches Less Restrictive Tier, Pasadena Sees 2 COVID-19 Deaths, 17 New Infections

first_img STAFF REPORT First Heatwave Expected Next Week Community News Top of the News Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Subscribe Community News Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box. Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. Public health officials in Pasadena reported 17 new COVID-19 infections and two additional fatalities Tuesday, as Los Angeles County stood on the edge of targets that would potentially allow it to move out of the state’s more restrictive “tier” under the “Blueprint for a Safer Economy.”Tuesday’s figures brought the city’s totals to 10,917 known infections and 316 deaths.Huntington Hospital reported treating 38 COVID-19 patients, with nine of them being treated in intensive care units.The hospital’s daily average of new COVID-19 admissions over the prior week fell to 3.9, which had not been seen since September.With COVID-19 transmission slowing, Los Angeles County moved to the brink of emerging from the most restrictive tier of the state’s business-reopening guidelines on Tuesday, meaning indoor dining and movie theaters could potentially be cleared to reopen by late March.Figures released by the state Tuesday put the county’s adjusted average daily rate of new COVID-19 infections at 7.2 per 100,000 residents. If that number falls to 7 per 100,000 residents and stays at that level for two weeks, the county will be able to move out of the restrictive “purple” tier of the state’s “Blueprint for a Safer Economy,” and into the “red” tier.Moving to the “red” tier would authorize the county to loosen restrictions on businesses — increasing capacity at indoor retailers to 50%, re-starting indoor restaurant dining at 25% of capacity, and reopening movie theaters, also at 25% capacity. Museums and aquariums could be permitted to operate at 25% capacity, and fitness centers could resume indoor activities at10% of capacity.The state updates tier assignments for all 58 counties every Tuesday.To advance to a less-restrictive tier of the state’s blueprint, a county must meet all three metrics required by the state for at least two weeks.To advance to the “red” tier, the county needs a new daily case rate of between 4 and 7 per 100,000 residents, along with an average testing positivity rate of 5% to 8% and a “health equity quartile” — a measurement of a county’s efforts to control the virus in disproportionately impacted communities — of 5.3% to 8%.Los Angeles County’s testing positivity rate is 3.5% and the equity quartile is 5.1%, both good enough to actually qualify the county for the even less-restrictive “orange” tier of the four-level state blueprint. To advance to that tier, the county’s new case rate would have to drop to between 1 and 3.9 per 100,000 residents.The county has been on the verge of exiting the “purple” tier before, meeting all the required metrics last fall. But the county was unable to maintain the metrics for the required two-week period, as case rates began to rise and eventually devolved to the winter surge.Even if the county does move up to the “red” tier, it would still be up to county health officials to decide whether to actually loosen the business restrictions. Counties are permitted to impose more stringent restrictions than the state.“The county’s state-adjusted rate of new cases has been rapidly falling in recent weeks, falling from about 28 per 100,000 residents three weeks ago, then dropping to 20, then to 12.3 last week.On Monday, county Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer highlighted the improving numbers, while still urging residents to keep wearing masks, avoiding gatherings and practicing good hygiene to avoid a reversal of the trend.With more groups of workers becoming eligible for vaccines on Monday, Ferrer again urged people not to make vaccination appointments if they are not in an eligible group. She said health officials “constantly get reports” about people gaming the state’s MyTurn computer system to make appointments regardless of their eligibility.“If you were able to make an appointment but you’re not in one of the eligible groups, please cancel your appointment,” she said. “Don’t take away an appointment from an eligible worker and please don’t come to the vaccination site, because you will need to be turned away.”The county on Tuesday reported another 91 COVID-19 deaths, increasing the countywide death toll since the start of the pandemic to 21,554.Another 1,407 cases were announced Tuesday, lifting the overall total from throughout the pandemic to 1,194,242.At the state level, the California Department of Public Health announced 2,533 new infections and 303 additional fatalities on Tuesday, raising the statewide totals to 3,481,611 cases of the virus and 52,497 deaths.The state’s average positivity rate over the prior week was recorded at 2.3%, while the 14-day average stood at 2.6%, according to CDPH data.As of Tuesday, L.A. County accounted for 34% of California’s total COVID-19 infections and 41% of the state’s fatalities. faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Donald CommunityPCC- COMMUNITYVirtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Make a comment More Cool Stuffcenter_img CITY NEWS SERVICE/STAFF REPORT Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Business News Community News As County Approaches Less Restrictive Tier, Pasadena Sees 2 COVID-19 Deaths, 17 New Infections L.A.

Senator Pearse Doherty says although the company’s stance is despicable, and the workers have been placed in an impossible position, more jobs may now come to pass.last_img read more
