Jamie Mackintosh elbow earns him red and a one week ban

first_imgThursday Oct 1, 2015 Jamie Mackintosh elbow earns him red and a one week ban Southland Stags prop Jamie Mackintosh was shown a straight red card in an ITM Cup match against Otago on Saturday. The burly prop was cited and has since pleaded guilty to contravening law 10.4(a) Punching or Striking, and has been banned for a week.Mackintosh collided with Otago prop Hisa Sasagi, and while Sasagi just put his hands up, the Southland front rower lifted his arm, making dangerous contact with the face.Sasagi needed treatment and despite Mackintosh’s protestations, the referee had little option but to judge on what he saw, which was an unprovoked forearm, or elbow, to the face.At the disciplinary hearing Mackintosh accepted responsibility for what had occurred, and New Zealand Rugby Duty Judicial Officer Nigel Hampton QC found this to be a lower end offence, with an indicative starting point of a two week suspension.However, after finding no aggravating factors needing to be taken into account and noting the player’s admission, plus his long and distinguished playing record, he applied a one week discount to the period of suspension.Mackintosh has been suspended from all forms of rugby for one week up to, and including, Sunday 4 October 2015. He will miss Southland’s next ITM Cup match against Hawke’s Bay.Otago went on to win the Dunedin match 61-7.

Donnelly Votes to Override but Senate Fails to Advance WOTUS…

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Donnelly Votes to Override but Senate Fails to Advance WOTUS Disapproval… The Senate failed to move forward with a veto override on the Waters of the U.S. disapproval resolution Thursday. Following the veto earlier this week, the Senate considered an override, but the motion failed a cloture vote 52-40 as the Senate needed 60 votes in favor to override the veto. The legislation at issue falls under the Congressional Review Act, which gives lawmakers the power to overturn regulations. However, resolutions blocking federal rules are subject to a presidential veto and require a two-thirds majority for an override. Even if the Senate had achieved cloture on the resolution, final passage would have required a two-thirds majority in both chambers of Congress — a steep climb, according to The Hill. The fate of WOTUS currently lies solely with the Federal Courts, which many agriculture groups fear could be a lengthy and costly process.Senator Joe Donnelly released the following statement after voting  to override President Obama’s veto of the recent Congressional Resolution of Disapproval regarding the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule. Donnelly said, “As I’ve said all along, no one wants cleaner water or healthier land more than the farming families who work and live alongside these waters. The WOTUS rule does not provide the clarity it intended – instead the rule burdens farmers and fails to incorporate input from people who work on the land every day.  Last fall, a bipartisan majority in the Senate voted for my bill to fix the rule, showing that there’s support for a commonsense WOTUS rule that works for Indiana agriculture, farmers, and clean water across the United States. We have to keep working on a bipartisan, commonsense policy to best serve Indiana’s agriculture community and producers.” Donnelly Votes to Override but Senate Fails to Advance WOTUS Disapproval Veto By Gary Truitt – Jan 21, 2016 SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articleUS Navy Lead the Way on Renewable Fuel Gary Truittlast_img read more

Three news websites hacked, newspaper publisher bombed

first_img Chile: RSF calls for exemplary investigation into Chilean photographer’s murder ChileAmericas News November 10, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Three news websites hacked, newspaper publisher bombed Help by sharing this information News ChileAmericas Receive email alerts Follow the news on Chile Organisation July 6, 2020 Find out morecenter_img News News November 11, 2020 Find out more RSF_en Journalists face archaic sanction of capital punishment in some parts of the world to go further The explosion of a home-made bomb outside the headquarters of the media company Copesa, publisher of the daily La Tercera, and cyber-attacks on three news websites during the past few days have punctured the non-existent dialogue between the government and the vast, student-led protest movement that has rocked Chile since the start of the year.Amid mounting social tension and outbreaks of violence at the generally peaceful demonstrations, journalists are increasingly exposed to hostility and police repression. Reporters Without Borders fears a negative effect on the media and on the public debate that Chile badly needs.“All the Chilean media, both alternative and traditional, are threatened by these online attacks on three news websites and the homemade bomb attack on Copesa,” Reporters Without Borders said. “This climate of violence must be checked by police and judicial action and by a political response to the public’s calls for media pluralism. A broad debate involving all of society cannot be put off any longer. Otherwise the situation will keep deteriorating and there will be a dangerous increase in intolerance and polarization.”Mauricio Tolosa, the co-founder and editor of the Sitiocero website, was the target of a cyber-attack on 4 November which caused him to lose all the site’s records since June and forced him to suspend operations for 24 hours. Two alternative news websites, La Otra Voz and Puro Periodismo, were also hacked at around the same time without suffering as much damage.Tolosa, who is also concerned about polarization, told Reporters Without Borders: “Both our site and the two other sites provide analysis and contextualization, and debate broad issues of interest to the public. They are not overtly political or activist sites.” Sitiocero has had 200,000 visitors in the past six months, he said. A source close to the Anonymous movement told Sitiocero that the hackers were probably Neo-Nazis.The homemade bomb explosion outside the Copesa building on the night of 1 November shattered some windows but caused no injuries. The building houses La Tercera, one of Chile’s leading dailies. A hitherto unknown group calling itself the Voltaire Argandoña/F.A.I-F.R.I Autonomous Commando claimed responsibility in an online communiqué three days later. It said it wanted to “generate insecurity” against La Tercera and was targeting two journalists, Andrés López and Sebastián Labrín, in particular.Reporters Without Borders unreservedly condemns such acts of violence accompanied by incitement to hatred and violence, and hopes there will soon be results from the investigations into these incidents, which do not bode well for the free circulation of ideas and opinions.

Required fields are marked * A union representing nurses in Los Angeles County Wednesday called for the federal government to immediately implement the Defense Production Act to request companies make needed protective supplies for health care workers on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic.Service Employees International Union Local 2015, the nation’s largest long-term care union representing 400,000 nursing home and home care workers throughout the state, said nursing home workers — and other health care workers — do not have close to adequate protection with COVID-19 outbreaks already beginning to impact nursing homes.“Our members are truly on the front lines of this crisis,” said April Verrett, president of SEIU Local 2015. “They are providing vital care to the nation’s most at-risk population on a daily basis.“These workers are putting themselves in harm’s way every day that they go without proper protective equipment, and that ends now. We implore our leaders in Washington to look past political squabbles and join us in doing what’s right for all working people.”Joining the union in the call to action in Wednesday’s conference call with reporters were Assemblywoman Eloise Reyes, D-Grand Terrace, Sen. Richard Pan, D-Sacramento, and Crystal Solorzano, CEO of ReNew Health Group.The coalition calls on Congress to ensure that health care workers, providers and states have the resources to meet the incredible demand facing them and support the production of more medical supplies.SEIU Local 2015 addressed key actions that should be taken up to support those who need PPE to safely care for those in need:— Applications of the Defense Production Act to order domestic manufacturing industries to make products the nation needs in a time of crisis;— immediate distribution of the masks and equipment held in the Strategic National Stockpile;— identify reserves of masks and equipment in other industries, such as construction, and redistributing them to healthcare workers; and— use all powers of the federal government to speed immediate production of new supplies and ensure they are routed to states for distribution across acute care, home care and long-term care settings.“This is an unprecedented crisis not just in California, but across the country,” Reyes said.“We are working closely with the governor’s office to identify additional supplies, but it’s just not enough. We need Washington to step up now for the workers of this state.”Should COVID-19 take hold in the nursing home community the result would undoubtedly be a catastrophic increase in fatalities, the union stated.SEIU Local 2015’s members support residents who are at the extreme end of the risk spectrum for experiencing adverse effects of COVID-19 should they contract the virus.This includes people who live with conditions such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, heart disease and diabetes.“As a practicing pediatrician, I have seen firsthand the impact this outbreak is having on not just the sick, but on those who care for them,” Pan said.“It is vital that our nursing home workers — and all health care workers in the state — are provided with appropriate safety equipment. There is no time to waste. The federal government must act now.”Solorzano said nursing home residents “constitute the most at-risk group with regard to this outbreak. In most cases, they are elderly and suffering from pre-existing conditions, many of which are respiratory in nature.”“We need to know our employees and residents are being kept safe, and that is not the case right now,” Solorzano said. “That is why we are standing with SEIU Local 2015 in making this request.” Community News Community News Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more

Are Loans Originated by GSEs Less Likely to Default?

first_img About Author: Mike Albanese  Print This Post Are Loans Originated by GSEs Less Likely to Default? Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Milliman reported that the default risk for loans backed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac fell to 1.99% during Q2 2019. The default risk for the GSEs was 2.01% during Q1 2019. The report says that the average GSE mortgage originated during Q2 has a 1.99% chance the loan will become 180 days delinquent or worse. Milliman’s most recent number is far decline from the 2007 rate—recorded shortly before the financial crisis—of 13.8%. “Low interest rates in Q2 spurred more borrowers to refinance, which typically reduces credit risk for underlying mortgages,” says Jonathan Glowacki, Principal and Consulting Actuary at Milliman and co-author of the MMDI. “But while the default rated dipped slightly in the second quarter of this year, we’re also starting to see increased economic risk from slower home price growth, which may elevate mortgage default risk in the future.”Ginnie Mae loans had a default risk of 8.15%, which is a slight increase from Q1 2019’s 8.09%. Milliman said this increase is consistent with the overall trends for these loans and that default risk for Ginnie Mae acquisitions have been rising since 2014. “Default risk is driven by various factors including the risk of a borrower taking on too much debt, underwriting risk such as certain mortgage features, and economic risk such as a recession, which can put pressure on home prices,” Milliman states. September’s S&P/Experian Consumer Credit Default Indices revealed that the first mortgage default rate increased four basis points to 0.73%. The indices represent a measure of changes in consumer credit defaults and show that the composite rate rose one basis point to 0.93%.Outside of mortgage defaults, the bank card default rate fell 41 basis points to 3.32%, and the auto loan default rate was up seven basis points to 1.05%.Three of the five major metropolitan statistical areas (MSA) showed higher default rates compared to last month. Chicago showed the largest increase, up 14 basis points to 1.19%. The default rates for New York and Miami each rose two basis points, to 0.96% and 1.30% respectively. The rate for Dallas was unchanged at 0.93%. Los Angeles was the only MSA with a decrease in default rates, down five basis points to 0.72%. in Daily Dose, Featured, Loss Mitigation, News Related Articles Mike Albanese is a reporter for DS News and MReport.
