Government Should Retrieve MAD 17 Billion from Moroccos Fuel Companies Balafrej

Rabat – Omar Balafrej, MP of the Federation of the Democratic Left (FGD) has criticized Moroccan fuel companies of “immorally and unreasonably” making an additional profit of  MAD 17 billion from the liberalization of fuel prices.Balafrej has also proposed the retrieval of the extra profit the companies made, owing to the liberalization of fuel prices enacted in December 2015.Balafrej recommended Tuesday in a plenary session of the House of Representatives retrieving MAD 17 billion in profits from oil companies for government-funded projects. “I found it strange that none of the MPs or heads of parties have raised the issue of retrieving the 17 billion dirhams. It’s not a ‘trivial’ amount,” he said.Balafrej fervently explained to MPs the potential projects that the government could implement with MAD 17 billion.“With 17 billion dirhams we could build: two tunnels under Tichka, train railway to Al-Hoceima or Rachidia, 17 university hospitals, and 6,000 cultural centers. As for education, which is the major priority, 1,000 community schools could be built and enough teachers could be employed, functional housing could be provided for all teachers in Morocco; free transport for all school and university students, computers for all school and university students in Morocco, and MAD 1,700 scholarships could be provided to each university student.” MP Abdellah Bouanou of PJD also stated in May that the difference between the government’s set prices and today’s prices is nearly MAD 1 per liter. “Moroccans annually consume some 6.5 million tons [of fuel]. So, we easily reach 7 billion dirhams in additional profit in one year.”Balafrej’s call for national reconciliationBalafarj also made remarks on the sentences pronounced against Moroccan activists involved in the Al Hoceima protest.Balafrej’s proposed projects covered the main economic and social sectors including education, transport, and health. However, at the end of his 2-min talk, Balafrej stressed that national reconciliation should be given priority over education. “Today, there are concerns more important than education, and there are those who will be surprised at this because I have always insisted on education,” Balafrej said.Criticizing the heavy sentences given to Hirak Rif activists on June 26, the politician said: “Today’s priority is for national reconciliation, because we need relief. Enough nihilism, don’t be nihilistic.”Balafrej and MP Mustapha Chennaoui of the FGD party have already taken action towards securing the release of political detainees . On June 29, they  introduced a proposed law requesting general amnesty for all political detainees involved in social movements over the past two years. The proposal is based on Article 71 of the Moroccan Constitution, which stipulates that general amnesty can be requested by Parliament. In Article 1 of the draft law, the FGD called for “general amnesty for all acts related to protests that occurred in Morocco from October 28, 2016 to June 28, 2018.” read more

Casablanca Court Denies Bouachrines Request for Temporary Release

Rabat – The Casablanca court has rejected the request of jailed journalist Taoufik Bouachrine for temporary release.It is not the first time that Bouachrine, who is awaiting trial on heavy charges of sexual assault, has requested and been denied temporary release.Last week, some Moroccan news outlets shared a series of leaked screenshots allegedly captured from the videos seized in the arrest of Bouachrine. The pictures, which show what appears to be the journalist with women in his office, were leaked after the National Gendarmerie Laboratory conducted a report to analyze the seized videos.The laboratory submitted its report to the court early last week.Mohamed Kerrout, one of the lawyers for the complainants told local media after Bouachrine’s latest hearing that the videos “are not fake,” according to the experts who analyzed them.However, the sharing of the alleged leaked photos angered Morocco’s Press Union, which issued a statement on Friday to condemn the act.According to the statement, which was obtained by Morocco World News, the media should be primarily concerned “with protecting the ethics and dignity of the people.” The statement slammed the news outlets which shared the photos, stating that the press is not made for “profit.”Bouachrine is the director of one of Morocco’s major newspapers,  Akhbar Al Yaoum, and its online outlet Al Yaoum24. Police arrested the journalist at the headquarters of the newspaper in February.Among the charges Bouachrine faces are sexual assault, human trafficking, rape, and attempted rape. read more

UN and African partners adopt joint strategy on Somalia crisis

The Joint Regional Strategy, adopted by the UN Political Office for Somalia (UNPOS), the African Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) and the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), outlines a common approach to political, security, humanitarian, institutional and financial issues and challenges facing the peace process in the Horn of Africa nation. Somalia – which has not had a functioning central government since 1991 – has been torn apart by decades of conflict and factional strife, more recently with al-Shabaab Islamic militants. The country is also facing a dire humanitarian crisis in which 2.4 million people are in need of assistance.The Strategy, signed at the monthly coordination meeting between Augustine Mahiga, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Somalia, Boubacar G. Diarra, the AU envoy for Somalia and head of AMISOM, and Kipruto arap Kirwa, the IGAD peace facilitator, will be used as a tool to enhance cooperation and information sharing between the three institutions, the international community and other partners, according to a joint communiqué.Under the Transitional Federal Charter, the mandate of the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) was due to expire in August. Earlier this month, however, the interim parliament voted to extend its mandate by three years beyond the August deadline by which it was to enact a new constitution ahead of general elections.That move drew criticism from Mr. Mahiga, who said the decision was made in haste and without the required consultation on how to end the transition and on next steps.Other tasks which need to be completed during the transition period include political reconciliation and building civilian and security institutions. 23 February 2011The United Nations and its African partners today adopted a joint strategy designed to help the troubled interim government in Somalia manage the transitional period. read more

UN rights council recommends suspending Libya orders inquiry into abuses

In a resolution adopted unanimously at the end of a special session held in Geneva, the 47-member Council called on the Libyan Government to meet its responsibility to protect its population, immediately end all human rights violations, stop any attacks against civilians, and respect the popular will, aspirations and demands of its people.Members of the Council are elected by the General Assembly, which has the right to suspend the membership of a country that has persistently committed gross and systematic violations of human rights during its term of membership. The process of suspension requires a two-thirds majority vote by the 192-member Assembly. Addressing the opening of the session, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay urged action to help end the violence in Libya and to hold perpetrators of atrocities accountable, warning that the crackdown on protesters is getting worse. “More needs to be done. I encourage all international actors to take necessary measures to stop the bloodshed,” she stated, adding that, according to some sources, thousands may have been killed or injured over the past week.“Although reports are still patchy and hard to verify, one thing is painfully clear: in brazen and continuing breach of international law, the crackdown in Libya of peaceful demonstrations is escalating alarmingly with reported mass killings, arbitrary arrests, detention and torture of protestors.” Tanks, helicopters and military aircraft have reportedly been used indiscriminately to attack the protestors, she added.“The Libyan leader must stop the violence now,” the High Commissioner stressed, pointing out that Libya is a member of the Human Rights Council and pledged to respect human rights, and is also a State party to various international human rights treaties. She also recalled that under international law, “any official, at any level, ordering or carrying out atrocities and attacks can be held criminally accountable and that widespread and systematic attacks against the civilian population may amount to crimes against humanity.”A statement delivered on behalf of all of the Council’s independent human rights experts endorsed the High Commissioner’s call for an international inquiry into the violence, stressing that the international community should “act without delay” to protect civilians from serious human rights violations. Witnesses in and out of Libya consistently describe horrifying scenes, Ms. Pillay told delegates. Libyan forces are firing at protestors and bystanders, sealing off neighbourhoods and shooting from rooftops. They also block ambulances so that the injured and dead are left on the streets. Reports from hospitals indicate that most of the victims have been shot in the head, chest or neck, suggesting arbitrary and summary executions, she said. Doctors relate that they are struggling to cope and are running out of blood supplies and medicines to treat the wounded.  “Images of unverifiable origin appear to portray the digging of mass graves in Tripoli,” she added. According to several accounts, killings have also been carried out by foreign fighters who were and reportedly continue to be brought into the country and equipped with small arms and light weapons by the Government to suppress the protests.In this connection, the High Commissioner’s Office has received reports that some Libyans are turning on refugees and migrants from other African countries, suspecting them of being mercenaries fighting for the Libyan Government.Ms. Pillay stressed that the safety of all foreign nationals be ensured and that the freedom of movement of those wishing to leave the country be fully respected and protected. “Libyan authorities must allow the safe passage of humanitarian and medical supplies and humanitarian workers into the country. They must also ensure that the legitimate demands of the protestors are addressed and the fundamental human rights of the population are fully respected and promoted,” she said. Ms. Pillay also voiced her concern for the safety and well-being of refugees crossing into neighbouring countries, particularly Tunisia, Egypt, Italy and Malta, and urged Libya’s neighbours to open their borders and ensure that refugees fleeing the violence are welcomed and treated humanely.The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) today commended the “humanitarian spirit” shown by the Tunisian and Egyptian Governments in welcoming and caring for people fleeing Libya. “We call upon the international community to provide substantial humanitarian support for these two countries,” Melissa Fleming, UNHCR’s spokesperson in Geneva, told reporters. She added that the agency is concerned that Libyans farther away from the border areas and in the capital, Tripoli, are being prevented from fleeing. The Tunisian Government has declared that its borders are open for all nationalities attempting to flee the ongoing violence in Libya, and reported that some 22,000 people have fled the violence in Libya and crossed over into Tunisia. The Egyptian Government has told UNHCR that Libyans are welcome and that it is ready to care for all injured and sick people who need to cross the border. A UNHCR team is starting work at the Egyptian border today. “We hope that all those who need to cross the border will be allowed to do so in a non-discriminatory manner,” said Ms. Fleming.Meanwhile, a team from the UN World Food Programme (WFP) is on the Libyan-Egyptian border to asses the food needs of those fleeing Libya. The agency said it is ready to dispatch high energy biscuits and provide food assistance to Libyans when the security situation improves. 25 February 2011The United Nations Human Rights Council today strongly condemned the recent violence in Libya and ordered an international inquiry into alleged abuses, while also recommending that the country’s membership in the UN’s top human rights body be suspended. read more

Put state firms on commercial footing IMF tells Lanka

“First half GDP data indicate a pickup in growth—likely to continue in the range of 5 to 5.5 percent through end-2015—driven mainly by strong growth in services and a recovery in agricultural output. The increase in consumer spending created by the sharp rise in public wages and salaries has also contributed to a sizeable increase in imports of consumption and other goods—more than offsetting savings from lower oil prices. The resulting deterioration in the nonoil trade balance has contributed to persistent downward pressure on central bank foreign exchange reserves during the first eight months of the year. Headline inflation is currently near zero but is expected to end the year around 3 percent. Core inflation has risen steadily since the beginning of the year, consistent with higher demand for domestic non-tradables and a gradual reduction in economic slack. Risks to outlook are tilted to the downside with more volatile external financing conditions resulting from the expected monetary policy tightening in the U.S. and uncertainties over growth prospects in emerging markets.“The mission welcomes the CBSL’s recent decision to cease setting daily spot prices for the rupee and let market forces play a greater role in determining the exchange rate. Moving ahead, the commitment to exchange rate flexibility should continue in order to maintain competitiveness and facilitate an increase in CBSL foreign exchange reserves. The mission encouraged CBSL to work toward deepening foreign exchange markets and to revitalize a review of foreign exchange controls to enable inward investment. Additionally, the mission found the overall financial system stable and current monetary stance appropriate – but recommended vigilance given rising core inflation, the resurgence of private credit, and signs of receding slack in the economy. In this context, a tightening bias appears prudent. “The mission agreed with the authorities on the need to take immediate and credible steps to reestablish fiscal consolidation and reduce of public debt. The mission projects a fiscal deficit in the range of 5.5 to 6 percent of GDP in 2015—higher than budgeted and financed mainly by domestic borrowing. Looking ahead, the 2016 budget is an opportunity to shift decisively back to a durable medium-term path of fiscal consolidation and to set macroeconomic priorities for 2016 and beyond. The mission strongly recommended to keep the 2016 fiscal deficit to 5.5 percent of GDP—and to base consolidation on a combination of expenditure restraint and durable revenue reforms. The mission emphasized the need to eliminate tax expenditures (exemptions, tax holidays and reduced rates) as the most important component in a strategy to make the tax system simple, fair, and efficient.“The mission welcomes the authorities’ attention to the need for market-based structural reforms and efforts to reinvigorate key initiatives. Fuel and electricity pricing, subsidies, trade policy, liberalization of factor markets (particularly land), and the investment environment are areas that could play an essential role in sustaining high rates of economic growth. Putting state firms on a commercial footing, allowing them to make market-based financial decisions (including pricing) and subjecting them to the greater financial discipline will also help to reduce risks to the budget and the financial system.“A discussion on Post Program Monitoring by the IMF’s Executive Board is expected in mid-November, 2015.” At the end of the visit, Schneider issued the following statement: The mission met with the Prime Minister, Government, and Central Bank of Sri Lanka (CBSL) officials, as well as civil society and private sector representatives. The International Monitory Fund (IMF) has urged Sri Lanka to put state firms on a commercial footing, allowing them to make market-based financial decisions (including pricing) and subjecting them to the greater financial discipline as it will also help to reduce risks to the budget and the financial system.A staff mission led by Todd Schneider visited Colombo from September 8 – 18 to conduct Post-Program Monitoring discussions. This enhanced surveillance is routine for countries that have had “exceptional access” to IMF resources, as is the case for Sri Lanka, which successfully completed a $2.6 billion IMF program in 2012. read more

Vicar asks to have his own church bells silenced as he complains

Rev Parry said he was “pleased” that the council were engaging with the issue, adding: “I think it’s reasonable to ask them to be switched off at night.””If it was me in charge of the clock I would have switched the chimes off overnight, as they aren’t necessary and do cause a disturbance to my family as we live very close by. St Mary's Church in Conwy “I’m also concerned as Conwy relies so much on tourism that if tourists can’t sleep at night, they will not come back to the town.”The point is the town is now very busy with stag and hen parties, and once awake it’s difficult to get back to sleep-the clock doesn’t help.”St Mary’s Church in Conwy dates back to the 12th century with the 19th century clock tower being a gift to the town by Lord Penrhyn.The clock has been ticking since 1857 and was made so that seafarers would have an accurate time to aid their navigation.But the questionnaire asks if the clock chimes were “annoying and unnecessary” or are part of the town’s character and if they affected local businesses.Rev Parry said he was “pleased” the town council had decided to canvass opinion on the midnight-to-dawn chimes curfew.Neighbour Audrey Barker said: “The questionnaire is one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever seen.”I don’t know anyone in the neighbourhood, living within the town walls who is in favour of silencing the chimes during nighttime hours.”Also I’m not sure what happens with Big Ben but I’m pretty sure that they chime throughout the night.” St Mary’s Church in Conwy dates back to the 12th century with the 19th century clock tower being a gift to the town by Lord Penrhyn.Credit:Wales News Service A vicar is appealing for his own church’s bells to be silenced at night because his family can’t get to sleep at night.A questionnaire has been handed out to 400 residents of Conwy, North Wales after Reverend David Parry complained to the town council about the disturbance.The clergyman from St Mary’s church wants the bells in the 19th century clock tower to be switched off to stop them chiming every 15 minutes from midnight until 6.15am, and is calling for public support.This is at least the third time that the issue has been raised in the last two years, with the town council previously dismissing the concerns.It is not clear whether Rev Parry made the previous complaints, but this is the first time the council have canvassed the opinions of locals.

Natasha Flint, clerk to Conwy Town council, said 200 questionnaires have been returned.She believes more than 95 per cent of people are in favour of keeping the chimes as they are.Ms Flint said: “We’ve had around six or seven people against the chimes, but the vast majority are in favour.”We’ve also had a few very rude responses saying we’ve wasted tax payers money I’d like to tell them it’s cost us around £10 to do as we hand-delivered the letters and used photocopies.” read more

The objective of the programme is to provide students with basic leadership skills, while affording them the opportunity to travel the country.Education Minister Nicolette Henry being briefed by Army officials last FridayThe process commenced on Friday in the boardroom of the GDF headquarters, Camp Ayanganna, where acting Education Minister Nicolette Henry was briefed on the programmes by Chief-of-Staff (CoS) Patrick West and other military officials.Last year when President Granger announced the re-introduction of the programme, he said his intention was not militarisation, but giving the youth an opportunity to explore the country.“I do believe that in secondary school youngsters should be exposed to leadership skills, teamwork, to sport, (and) to travel.”All these, the President said, could prepare them for a military or civilian career in the future, as the experience they would gain will take them through life.The Corps will also provide recreational and learning opportunities for youths between the ages of 12 and 18 during the August holidays.President Granger said too that the Corps would also play up the importance of teamwork, and all the good traits which come with public service.The Head of State noted, however, that the National Cadet Corps would not be compulsory, but would be open to all youths.Over the years, at least three Cadet Corps – the Army Cadet Company, the Queen’s College Cadet Company and the National Cadet Corps were formed, but all had been dissolved. read more

Orange peut désormais distribuer liPad

first_imgOrange peut désormais distribuer l’iPadPlusieurs opérateurs ont mené d’âpres négociations pour pourvoir vendre la tablette d’Apple. L’opérateur Orange distribue désormais l’iPad pour 275 euros par mois.Les discussions ont été longues mais Orange a gagné le droit de distribuer l’iPad d’Apple. Il faut dire que la firme à la pomme n’avait plus le choix. L’arrivée de la tablette Galaxy de Samsung chez les opérateurs était une concurrence que le géant américain se devait de prendre en compte.Steve Jobs, le PDG d’Apple, a voulu garantir une offre permettant d’attirer suffisamment de consommateurs. Ainsi, Orange propose l’iPad à partir de 275 euros avec un abonnement de 24 mois au lieu des 599 euros nu. De plus, la firme de Cuppertino proposera l’année prochaine une carte SIM intégrée à ses terminaux, ce qui excluera les opérateurs du circuit de distribution des smartphones (voir notre article). Cependant, il sera difficile pour les opérateurs, qui souhaitaient boycotter ces produits réduisant leur influence, de mettre de côté l’iPad pour les fêtes de fin d’année.Le 22 novembre 2010 à 13:23 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Its 10PM Do You Know What Business Youre In

first_imgOne of the problems that plagues newspapers and magazines today is their inability to see their business with fresh eyes. It’s a problem that has afflicted other industries in other times. The executives who ran the railroad industry, for example, suffered huge losses as long as they thought they were in the railroad business. What they couldn’t see as long as they looked through old and tired eyes, was that they were in the transportation business, which meant their competitors weren’t other railroads; they were up against planes, cars, boats—anything that moved people, goods and, today, information.What business are magazine companies in today? If you answer, “the magazine business” chances are good you’re about to go out of business. “The magazine” is a commodity, and commodities, by definition, lack distinction, uniqueness, and brand equity. The only way to survive today is to reframe your self, to offer a singular product or service (or combination of the two) in a way that adds value and attracts particular customers.For example, when I co-founded Fast Company magazine in 1995, one of the first questions we asked ourselves was, what business are we in? The market for business magazines was already crowded with established contenders. What was our new frame? We decided that we were in the “edu-tainment” business: we’d compete against Fortune by being more educational, offering readers management and career lessons they could use, and we’d compete against the Harvard Business Review by being more entertaining, with livelier graphics, hipper design, and better writing.Take the news business for example. News is the ultimate commodity today. It’s available 24/7 on the Web in all flavors, languages and ideologies. But in this vast undifferentiated zone, there are some versions of the news that actually stick out. Jon Stewart, for instance, has emerged as one of the country’s most trusted newscasters—that’s right, newscaster—despite the fact (or because of it) that his show is a self-described comedy show: comedy news that is. At the other end of the spectrum, Keith Olberman, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and others of that ilk capture significant audiences by offering, not news, but their views on the news: opinion as news.Just being in the news business today is a prescription for being out of business tomorrow—a fact realized by both Time and Newsweek, as they desperately try to morph into publications that more resemble The Economist, which figured this out a long time ago.One last example: last week I ventured into a hip clothing shop in Los Angeles. A batch of very cool T-shirts caught my eye: each one featured a replica of an old Rolling Stone cover. The shirts weren’t cheap—each one cost something like $40—so I knew I was dealing with high fashion. But here’s the kicker. If I bought a T-shirt, I got a free one-year subscription to the magazine!So, what business is Rolling Stone in? In the old days, you’d buy a magazine and get a T-shirt. Today, with design and fashion trumping the old magazine business, if you buy a T-shirt, Rolling Stone throws in the subscription. Give them credit: at least they’re giving Rule #6 a try![Editor’s note: Click here for a look at Webber’s book, “Rules of Thumb: 52 Truths for Winning at Business Without Losing Your Self.”] Imagine that you’re part of an industry where the business model which served you so well for so long is failing.Imagine that practices that in the past provided predictable remedies for economic problems today simply don’t work.Imagine, in other words, that you are in the magazine business—or any other part of the media landscape.Making sense of change isn’t always easy. One thing to keep in mind, according to Rule #6 from “Rules of Thumb: 52 Truths for Winning at Business Without Losing Yourself”: If you want to see with fresh eyes, reframe the picture.last_img read more

Yuvraj Singh slams selectors management post Indias exit makes huge statement about

first_imgOver the last 12 to 15 months, the Indian middle-order faced concerns, the team was heavily reliant on the top order and the never-ending musical chair around the number 4 position refused to cease. There were problems when the squad was announced, there were problems with the choices made and these very problems came back to bite the team hard in their loss to New Zealand in the semi-final clash.After the loss, Yuvraj Singh, whose presence bolstered the middle order during India’s triumph in 2011, has hit out at the selectors and the management for not sorting out this issue properly.”The team management should have groomed someone. If someone was failing at No. 4, the team management should have told that player that he was going to play the World Cup. Like in 2003 World Cup, we were playing New Zealand before the tournament, everybody was failing. But the same team played in the World Cup,” Yuvraj told TOI.’Disappointing to watch what they did with Rayudu’ ReutersThere was an extended rope handed to Ambati Rayudu with the hope that he can nail down the number 4 spot, but the batsman was left out after he failed in the home series against Australia just before the World Cup. This call left Yuvraj bemused and he said that he was surprised over this treatment meted out after failure in just a single series.”It was disappointing to watch what they did with Rayudu. He was in the contention for the World Cup. He got runs in New Zealand but after three or four bad innings, he got dropped,” Yuvraj said.He also spoke about Rishabh Pant and the importance of backing a player and giving him confidence by not dropping the axe after a single failure. Ambati RayuduIANS”And then Rishabh (Pant) came in and he got dropped. If No. 4 is a crucial position in ODI cricket, if you want someone to do well in that position, you will have to back him. You can’t drop someone if he is unable to do well all the time,” Yuvraj added.It needs to be mentioned here that the BCCI has taken note of the selection muddle and as per reports, there will be questions asked of Ravi Shastri, Sanjay Bangar and Virat Kohli about not being able to find a solution to a problem which has been tagging along with the Indian team for a while now.”In between, the team had also tried Dinesh Karthik. Finally, we don’t know what their plan was for No. 4. They backed Rishabh again, he actually did well. If Rohit and Virat would get out early, we could get into trouble and everyone knew about that. We needed a solid No. 4. I didn’t understand the idea behind their plans,” Yuvraj further added.last_img read more

Hurricane Maria Hits Puerto Rico After Slamming Dominica

first_img Share Twitter user @NewsweekOne of the strongest hurricanes to ever hit Puerto Rico pummeled the island Wednesday, tearing off roofs and sending doors flying from hinges as officials warned Hurricane Maria would decimate the power company’s crumbling infrastructure and force the government to rebuild dozens of communities.Maria, which has killed at least nine in the Caribbean, made landfall early Wednesday in the southeast coastal town of Yabucoa as a Category 4 storm with winds of 155 mph (250 kph) winds, and it was expected to punish the island with life-threatening winds for 12 to 24 hours, forecasters said.People calling local radio stations reported that doors were flying off hinges and a water tank flew away in the island’s southern region. Meanwhile, widespread flooding was reported in the capital of San Juan, with water running down one apartment’s interior staircase.“This is going to be an extremely violent phenomenon,” Gov. Ricardo Rossello said. “We have not experienced an event of this magnitude in our modern history.”Metal roofs were already flying and windows were breaking as the storm approached before dawn, with nearly 900,000 people without power and one tree falling on an ambulance. Those who sought shelter at a coliseum in San Juan were moved to the building’s second and third floors, reported radio station WKAQ 580 AM. The storm was moving across Puerto Rico on Wednesday morning at 10 mph (17 kph), with a gust of 113 mph (182 kph) reported in the capital of San Juan, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami.Maria, which had previously been a Category 5 storm with 175 mph (281 kph) winds, hit Puerto Rico as the third strongest storm to make landfall in the United States based on a key measurement that meteorologists use: air pressure. The lower the central pressure a storm the stronger it is and Maria’s pressure was 917 millibars, lower than Irma’s U.S. landfall of 929 millibars in the Florida Keys earlier this month.Puerto Rico had long been spared from a direct hit by hurricanes that tend to veer north or south of the island. The last Category 4 hurricane landfall in Puerto Rico occurred in 1932, and the strongest storm to ever hit the island was San Felipe in 1928 with winds of 160 mph.As Maria approached, U.S. President Donald Trump offered his support via Twitter: “Puerto Rico being hit hard by new monster Hurricane. Be careful, our hearts are with you- will be there to help!”More than 4,400 people were in shelters by late Tuesday, along with 105 pets, Rossello said.The storm’s center passed near or over St. Croix overnight Tuesday, prompting U.S. Virgin Islands Gov. Kenneth Mapp to insist that people remain alert. St. Croix was largely spared the widespread damage caused by Hurricane Irma on the chain’s St. Thomas and St. John islands just two weeks ago. But this time, the island would experience five hours of hurricane force winds, Mapp said.“For folks in their homes, I really recommend that you not be in any kind of sleepwear,” he said during a brief news conference. “Make sure you have your shoes on. Make sure you have a jacket around. Something for your head in case your roof should breach. … I don’t really recommend you be sleeping from 11 o’clock to 4 (a.m.). … Be aware of what’s going on around you.”Maria killed two people in the French Caribbean island of Guadeloupe and two people aboard a boat were reported missing off La Desirade island, just east of Guadeloupe, officials said.About 40 percent of the island — 80,000 homes — were without power and flooding was reported in several communities.The storm also blew over the tiny eastern Caribbean island of Dominica late Monday, where Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit sent out a series of dramatic posts on his Facebook page, including that his own roof had blown away.“The winds are merciless! We shall survive by the grace of God,” Skerrit wrote before communications went down.Hartley Henry, an adviser to Skerrit, said there have been seven confirmed deaths in the Caribbean country from Hurricane Maria. Hartley Henry didn’t give details about how the deaths occurred.The storm knocked out communications for the entire island, leaving anyone outside Dominica struggling to determine the extent of damage, though it was clearly widespread. “The situation is really grave,” Consul General Barbara Dailey said in a telephone interview from New York.She said she lost contact with the island about 4 a.m. At that point, officials had learned that 70 percent of homes had lost their roofs, including her own.Flooding was a big concern, given the island’s steep mountains, cut through with rivers that rage even after a heavy rain. Dominica was still recovering from Tropical Storm Erika, which killed 30 people and destroyed more than 370 homes in August 2015.Forecasters said the storm surge from Maria could raise water levels by 6 to 9 feet (1.8 to 2.7 meters) near the storm’s center. The storm was predicted to bring 10 to 15 inches (25 to 38 centimeters) of rain across the islands, with more in isolated areas.To the north, Hurricane Jose weakened to a tropical storm Tuesday night. Forecasters said dangerous surf and rip currents were likely to continue along the U.S. East Coast but said the storm was unlikely to make landfall. Big waves caused by Jose swept five people off a coastal jetty in Rhode Island and they were hospitalized after being rescued.A tropical storm warning was posted for coastal areas in Rhode Island and Massachusetts, and tropical storm watches were up for parts of New York’s Long Island and Connecticut.last_img read more

Texas Health Building Invaded By Mold Raising Health Concerns

first_img Share Obtained by The Texas TribuneA Texas Department of State Health Service employee found mold on an office mousepad in June 2018.She said the agency is working to move people out of the affected areas to other open spaces and other short-term space “while continuing the preexisting search for long-term office space to house those employees.”Seth Hutchinson, vice president of the Texas State Employees Union, said broken elevators, leaks, mice, cockroaches and electrical outages in state buildings are common problems he hears about from members. He said state workers can talk to their supervisors about these problems but nothing happens without proper funding.“All of these issues are rampant throughout the state and state office buildings because the Legislature is not putting the money toward these maintenance problems,” Hutchinson said.One staff member, who requested anonymity for fear of being fired, told the Tribune that department employees have expressed exasperation with how the agency has expected business to proceed as usual during the mold problem. Staffers who found mold on their chairs have been using whichever mold-free ones they can find around the office.State workers have dreaded showing up to work, the staff member said. Employees try to wipe down any mold that’s visible but, according to the worker, “in terms of mold in the air, who knows.”“To me, the scariest part is that you actually have people who have mold allergies,” the worker said. “There’s one person I know who has mold allergies and he just couldn’t breathe.”Employees have also complained about how it took the agency three weeks from a recent mold sighting last month to get a contractor to come in. They’re also frustrated that there’s been no permanent fix to what they described as the office’s longtime humidity problem.“They haven’t really done much to try and actually fix the actual problem or find the actual problem,” the employee said.Felipe Rocha, director of the TB/HIV/STD Section, under the Texas Department of State Health Services, told staff in an email on June 6 that the department would relocate people into cubicles divvied up around the office and in another building about five minutes away. He noted it would be “conducive” for staff who have a laptop and can use Wi-Fi.“I would consider you working remotely elsewhere but there needs to be a compelling reason for it,” Rocha said.Obtained by The Texas TribuneA Texas Department of State Health Services employee found mold on an office chair in June 2018.Other employees who need to stay home but haven’t been approved to work there would need to request emergency leave, he said.Currently, three employees are on emergency leave. Anton said in an email that the agency doesn’t know how many employees are unable to work from home, saying only a limited number of employees have agency-issued laptops.Rocha wrote in a June 7 email to employees that fans and a large dehumidifier had been brought into the office. Plus, housekeeping staff was applying an enzyme solution to the carpet “to keep any additional mold from growing.”“What type of testing will be done to confirm that mold is no longer growing in my workspace?,” one employee replied to Rocha. “It is very important to me because I have a severe mold allergy and will need to confirm no more mold.”Rocha responded to the employee that Patel, the epidemiologist who specializes in occupational health, was providing resources and that Rocha would be discussing testing with her and Zumbrun, the associate commissioner. The next day he emailed that the commission ordered two dehumidifiers.The Department of State Health Services’ web page on indoor air quality warns about the risk of mold, saying its presence in a home “is an unsanitary condition that may present potential health risks to occupants.” Some health side effects, according to the site, include allergic reactions, respiratory problems, nasal congestion, eye irritation, coughing, skin rashes, headaches and fatigue.The site says health issues from mold “depend on the amounts and types of mold present, the length and frequency of exposure, and the sensitivity and health condition of exposed individuals.” Those most at risk of severe symptoms include people with allergies or asthma, people with weakened immune systems, young children and the elderly.“I know that this situation has been incredibly disruptive and that the mold has also affected different staff in different ways,” Rocha said in a June 21 email. “Some staff may have had their allergies exacerbated and others have seemingly not been affected at all.”According to a Rocha email on June 22, a mold assessment consultant from Baer Engineering set up data loggers to track temperature and humidity readings. A follow-up email from Rocha after a staff meeting about the mold problem noted that the consultant would return at the beginning of the week to collect mold samples from the carpet and chairs.Rocha wrote at the end of the email, “P.S. Don’t forget to turn off the dehumidifiers.”In recent weeks, the agency has opted to keep them on at all times on weekdays and weekends.But that’s becoming another point of contention in the mold saga. On July 11, the power went out in the TB/HIV/STD Section.“We have noticed that sometimes power is going off in certain cubicles and pods so we may end up having to amend our plan to continuously run the dehumidifier,” Rocha wrote in a July 11 email to workers.In addition, with the dehumidifiers running at all hours, employees are being put on rotation to empty them — even on weekends.“Shelley and Jonathon will coordinate putting together a schedule of staff to assist with this duty,” Rocha wrote. “I am sure they will take volunteers.”More troubling for employees is that the whole ordeal feels like deja vu. In May 2017, staffers were told Baer Engineering had not found a mold issue in Suite 1102 of the Austin State Hospital 636 building.According to Baer Engineering’s report at the time, there was a “musty and stuffy feel” but “no indication of a mold concern at the time of this assessment.” However, Baer Engineering said the office’s high humidity meant there was “a higher than normal chance of future mold growth.”On June 2, 2017, Annalise Monterosso, an epidemiologist with the Texas Department of State Health Services, wasn’t convinced.“There is black mold on the middle refrigerator next to Justin’s office, and the mini-fridge in the pump room has been largely colonized on the magnetic seal (which doesn’t seal well),” Monterosso said in an email obtained by the Tribune. “There may not be mold circulating in the air, but there is definitely mold in the building.” Obtained by The Texas TribuneA Texas Department of State Health Services employee found mold on their office keyboard hand rest in June 2018.Only one word comes to mind looking at photos that Texas Department of State Health Services employees took of gray, green and brown-hued mold dotting their office furniture: Ew.As of July 10, as many as 127 state workers have been affected by mold in the building, with some finding mold infiltrating their desks, chairs and keyboard hand rests in the Austin State Hospital 636 building. Mold also spotted the carpet. One state worker even found mold on shoes left in the office. As a result, employees whose job it is to analyze data on tuberculosis, HIV and sexually transmitted diseases in Texas have lately found themselves also researching what kind of health risks their own offices might pose.The state agency has tried to ward off the mold — with little success. A department staff memo, emails obtained by The Texas Tribune and inquiries to the Texas Health and Human Services Commission and Department of State Health Services reveal $15,721.19 spent on dehumidifiers and a mold assessment and some workers placed on emergency leave or relocated to vacant cubicles or a nearby building. The agency is even planning for Ketki Patel, a department epidemiologist who specializes in occupational health, to lead Q&A forums about mold in the workplace.“It is very distressing for me (and much more so for you) that there are so many significant building issues in ASH 636, particularly the high humidity and mold,” wrote Janna Zumbrun, associate commissioner for Laboratory and Infectious Disease Services for the Department of State Health Services, in a June 27 email to staff members.The mold, which officials at the Texas Health and Human Services Commission and the Texas Department of State Health Services confirmed to the Tribune, is another setback in Texas state agencies’ losing battle with building maintenance issues, which have forced them to spend money from their budgets to contract out for help. Another example emerged last year when the Texas Health and Human Services Commission said its Austin building was overrun by “several hundred rats.” Typically, the Texas Facilities Commission handles maintenance issues, but Texas Health and Human Services Commission officials say the facilities agency isn’t involved with fighting the mold problem.The Texas Health and Human Services Commission, which oversees the Department of State Health Services, hired Baer Engineering and Environmental Consulting to conduct a mold assessment in late June. That cost $4,826.24, according to Kelli Weldon, a spokesperson for the agency.The Baer Engineering mold assessment report, obtained by the Tribune, found “visible suspect mold was observed on desks, cabinets, chairs, carpet, walls, and around skylights.” The report found that throughout the dozen areas inside the building where samples were taken there was mold visibly seen or detected. Baer Engineering noted that the building’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning system was a factor, since “cycling at nights and weekends is causing temperature and humidity issues that promote mold growth.”The company recommended the agency either professionally clean or toss all furniture contaminated by mold; remove and replace damaged drywall walls in three areas of the building; keep the humidity at or below 65 percent or the temperature at 82 degrees Fahrenheit; and have the building ventilation evaluated by a specialist.The Department of State Health Services has so far spent $10,894.95 alone on dehumidifiers to fight the mold. As of July 2, the agency is renting six large dehumidifiers — $90 each for a total of $540 per day — so far racking up $9,720. In addition, the agency purchased five small dehumidifiers for $1,174.95.Lara Anton, a spokesperson for the Texas Department of State Health Services, said in an emailed statement that the agency is “concerned about the health and safety of our employees” and asked for the mold assessment.“We recently received the results of the assessment and we have begun implementing the recommendations to improve the indoor air quality in the building, including removal of furniture with mold on it and instructing the cleaning staff to thoroughly wipe down all surfaces on a regular basis,” Anton said.last_img read more
