County COVID-19 Death Toll Reaches 2,000

first_img 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 The County health department confirmed 46 new Coronavirus deaths and 1,204 new cases, taking the death toll above 2,000 cases.To date, the department has identified 42,037 positive cases of COVID-19 across all areas of LA County, and a total of 2,016 deaths.“To those of you who are suffering and grieving because of the loss of a loved one to COVID-19, we offer you our deepest condolences. We are thinking of you every day,” said Barbara Ferrer, Director of Public Health. “As more businesses and spaces are open, as individuals and institutions, we can take care of each other by continuing to practice physical distancing, wearing cloth face coverings, and following all of the directives for safer practices at businesses and in public spaces. We can do this, because we’ve done it. We have worked together doing our part to save lives.”Staying home, physical distancing and wearing cloth face coverings has resulted in a decreased number of new infections. Based on data from the Recovery Dashboard and key recovery indicators, Public Health is noting that the 7-day average of deaths per day decreased for most groups and the 3-day average for the number of people currently hospitalized with COVID-19 also decreased.Current health officer orders allow for retailers and manufacturers, select recreational facilities, and beaches to reopen and require specific higher-risk businesses to remain closed. Retailers remain closed to public entry, beaches are open for active recreation only, and public and private gatherings of any number of people outside of a single household unit are still not permitted.LA County is in stage two of the five-stage Roadmap to Recovery and until the final stage five is reached, Health Officer Orders and directives will continue to ensure that we slow spread of COVID-19 to prevent an overwhelming surge of COVID-19 cases at healthcare facilities. People who have underlying health conditions remain at much greater risk for serious illness from COVID-19, so it will continue to be very important for the County’s vulnerable residents to stay at home as much as possible, to have groceries and medicine delivered, and to call their providers immediately if they have even mild symptoms.

I’m absolutely delighted that our promise to the families and descendants of the men who worked in the docks, can now be fulfilled.“Work will commence shortly on the monument, which has been commissioned, and we are very hopeful for completion before Christmas”.The site on which it will be erected is on the riverside quay, opposite the former ESB offices, on Honan’s Quay.Cllr Long confirmed that the committee will also proceed with producing memorial scrolls on velum, recording the name and employment periods of former dockers, which will be presented to their descendants.A spokesperson for City Hall said that the Limerick sculptor, Michael Duhan, originally from Wolfe Tone Street, whose father worked in the docks, has been commissioned to execute the work, and she also confirmed their optimism for private investment.last_img read more

Presidential Candidates Urged to Address Housing Crisis on Campaign Trail

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / Presidential Candidates Urged to Address Housing Crisis on Campaign Trail  Print This Post A former U.S. Senator and a former U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary combined to urge 2016 presidential candidates to address the issues of a lingering American housing crisis.In a piece published as a Fox News Opinion earlier this week, Scott Brown, a Republican Senator for Massachusetts from 2010 to 2013 and Henry Cisneros, a Democrat who served as HUD Secretary from 1993 to 1997 during the Clinton Administration, urged those campaigning for next year’s presidential election speak about the housing industry’s most pressing issues in their campaigns and address what they call a “silent” housing crisis, since it is “largely overlooked by the media and strangely underestimated by our nation’s political leaders.”Both Brown and Cisneros currently serve on the executive committee of the J. Ronald Terwilliger Foundation for Housing America’s Families, which officially launched on June 9.  Terwilliger, one of the most successful real estate developers, has long been an advocate for housing policy changes.Candidates talking about the housing crisis on the presidential campaign trail, the authors said, is an excellent way to raise national public awareness and is a step toward finding solutions to the problems surrounding the housing industry, which include rising rents and diminished access to homeownership. Those problems, the authors said, have the nation “mired” in a housing crisis even six years following the official end of the great recession.”We believe those candidates who credibly address housing on the campaign trail will benefit at the ballot box,” Cisneros and Brown said. “After all, there are few issues as fundamentally important to the average voter and that hit closer to home. We urge each of the candidates – Republicans, Democrats, and independents – to make housing central to their campaigns and speak to the twin issues of rental affordability and home ownership access.”The authors point out that the nation’s homeownership rate is at its lowest point since the early 1990s and the rate for younger households has fallen to levels it has never seen before. Homeownership rates for minorities have also fallen substantially, “wiping out virtually all of the gains achieved over the past two decades.”Millions of homeowners transitioned from owning to renting after losing their homes to foreclosure since 2008 but now find homeownership out of reach due to a combination of tighter lending standards and years of stagnant incomes, according to Brown and Cisneros. Also, demand for rental housing is growing, causing the price of rents to rise, meaning many Americans are paying unsustainable portions of their incomes on rent and forcing them to forego necessities such as medical care and other essentials. It also makes it impossible for them to save for a down payment for a home, according to the authors. Not only that, but the supply of affordable housing is inadequate to meet the current and anticipated demand in that area.The housing crisis affects much of America’s population and not just the poor, the authors said. Many parents of millennials are concerned with how their sons and daughters who have thousands of dollars in student loan debt will be able to find a place to live amid rising rents and limited access to homeownership.”While these issues are deeply personal, they also have profound national implications,” they said. “Broad access to stable, safe, and affordable housing is a crucial part of the formula for upward mobility and essential for America’s future prosperity. Ensuring such access must be an urgent national priority. As members of different political parties, we believe there is plenty of common ground that can serve as the basis for a bipartisan policy response. But developing this response requires us to start talking first. We hope to see this conversation begin soon in communities throughout Iowa, New Hampshire, and the early primary states.” Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago About Author: Brian Honea Previous: Negative Equity Rate Falling, But 4 Million Borrowers May Be Trapped Underwater Next: Freddie Mac’s STACR Program Receives Prestigious RMBS Award Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago June 12, 2015 1,139 Views Related Articles Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days agocenter_img 2016 Presidential Race Henry Cisneros Housing Market Scott Brown 2015-06-12 Brian Honea The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Tagged with: 2016 Presidential Race Henry Cisneros Housing Market Scott Brown Share Save Presidential Candidates Urged to Address Housing Crisis on Campaign Trail in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.

Juilletdescribed the structure of the parent group as “very centralised, veryhierarchical and monolithic”. The challenge for chief executive LucVandevelde to restore the group’s fortunes is “a race against theclock”.Heaffirmed that M&S plans to sell all 18 French shops, and ensure personnelare transferred, but couldn’t guarantee that all 1,700 jobs would be saved.M&Screated a storm of protest in March when it announced the closures, and itcould face court action over alleged failures to consult with staff.PeterReid, an independent adviser to top European companies on works councils, saidthe saga reveals deep-seated cultural differences between the UK and France.”In France, the consultation system is about saving jobs rather than justconsultation,” he said. “The pressure is to strengthen theconsultation process, because there is a political desire to remove the abilityof companies to close plants and offices.”TheBritish view is that the level and extent of staff consultation depends on theemployer and each organisation should be allowed to develop its own approach ina voluntary way. Europeanemployers with more than 50 staff are set to be covered by a draft EU directiveon information and consultation with staff.www.lefigaro.frWorkingconditions slip as capitalism takes over in ChinaEmploymentconditions have fallen with the spread of private sector industries in China,according to an investigation by the New York Times. Statutoryconditions in China are on a par with Western countries, but in practice the44-hour working week and locally set minimum wages are ignored, the reportsaid. Conditions are particularly bad in manufacturing plants run by inwardinvestors, employing staff who have migrated from rural areas. “The supplyof labour vastly exceeds the demand,” said Zhou Litai, a lawyer inShenzhen who has represented workers in health and safety cases.Thereport quoted one trade union official as saying that there had been collusionbetween local government officials and factory managers, which has hamperedimplementation of worker-protection laws.www.nytimes.comTaiwaneseunemployment risesTaiwanhas seen unemployment soar in the past year. The economy contracted by morethan 2 per cent in the second quarter of 2001, and the proportion of thepopulation that is unemployed rose to 4.5 per cent, compared with just 2.9 percent a year earlier. TheUnited Daily News has reported that the jobless rate might break 5 per centthis year. The economy shows no sign of improvement and tens of thousands ofgraduates are about to enter the labour market, the agency said.Unofficialtrade strong in Argentina Alarge proportion of the Argentine workforce is in the informal economy,according to the national chamber of commerce. A report estimated that turnoverin unofficial trade through street vendors is around Ar Pesos 15bn (US$ 15bn),evading Pesos 3bn in losses to the labour market and taxes.Thestatistics reflect a national rate of unemployment which has increased in thepast year to 16.5 per cent, and is slightly higher, at 17.2 per cent in theGreater Buenos Aires region, the principal economic centre of the country. www.lanacion.com.arUSAReferendum bid launched to resist local wage floorBusinessesin a Californian city are organising signatures to authorise a referendum onlocal minimum wage legislation. Opponents of the Living Wage Bill in SantaMonica say the requirement for some larger employers to pay at least $10.50 perhour is unnecessary regulation and “pay-back to unions that supported mostof the council”, according to Herb Katz, of the employers’ campaign.Unionorganisers have planned their own “decline to sign” campaign,shadowing the pro-business group as it solicits signatures. The pro-labourgroup lobbied a farmers’ market, handing out pieces of pie, saying thatlow-paid workers “deserve their slice”. The employers’ campaign,known as FAIR, has spent nearly $200,000 on the protest, and received over$50,000 of in-kind contributions. www.worldatwork.comWesternEuropeManagers must learn from past on job cutsEmployersare failing to learn the lessons of past exercises in downsizing, HR expertshave warned, as redundancy schemes spread across the economy. TheHay Group reported that many organisations have declined to offer outplacementservices in order to save costs, and warned that they will have a damagedreputation when they start to hire again. “It makes people who are stayingrather nervous of their employer – there is quite a lot of resentment andanger; you never know when those former employees are going to be clients ofyours. Also, word gets out on the street that the organisation is not a niceplace to work,” said Susan Bloch, head of executive coaching at the HayGroup.Shesaid that the common practice of asking redundant employees to clear theirdesks and leave the building within an hour causes great upset and offers noadvantages to the organisation.Inthe case of the new economy, executives have often been inexperienced and wereanticipating endless growth, so were unprepared to deal with redundancysituations, she added.Companiesshould follow the lead of Cisco, which offered redundant staff the chance towork for a charity for a year on one-third full pay, she said.Redundancieshave spread from collapsing dotcoms to telecom firms and vehicle manufacturers.Unemploymenthas generally halted its downward slide in advanced economies. In August,German Chancellor Gerhard Schroder conceded that he is unlikely to meet histarget to reduce the country’s total of unemployed people to 3.5 million bynext year. The number increased to just under 3.8 million in July.www.worldatwork.comGermanyRed tape ties refugee postsMedium-sizedcompanies in Germany cannot afford to take on skilled immigrants because of thebureaucracy involved and the high level of the minimum wage, according to areport by an industry-financed economic research unit IW.Itsaid that the “green card” application process for a skilled employeeis time-consuming, and compounds the problems caused by helping the recruit tofind housing. However, the report also states that some employers have foundthat recent simplifications in the process have helped. The minimum yearlyincome of DM100,000 (around $45,000) was too high for some companies.Almost9,000 green cards have been issued in Germany to IT experts from outside theEuropean Union. The country has put a time limit of five years on the durationof the work permits, which the report indicated was a reason for low take-up asit inhibits career planning.www.faz.comUSACEO’s $10m severance payAseverance package has topped the $10m mark. Michael Bonsignore, departing chiefexecutive of Honeywell International, received the parting gift along with”generous pension cheques”, according to World at Work, formerly theAmerican Compensation Association. Bonsignorewas ousted by the board of directors in July, and details of his severancepackage emerged in a quarterly filing with the Securities and ExchangeCommission, the principal listed companies regulator in the US.LawrenceBossidy has been brought out of retirement to head the firm on a temporarybasis, on a salary of $2m, plus a target bonus.Highremuneration, particularly for executives who have not been deemed to haveearned them, are increasingly being questioned by investor groups andregulators in the US and the UK. Disclosure requirements have been tightened up.www.worldatwork.comCanadaCivil servants walk out over ‘double standards’Publicservice employees in Canada held three one-day strikes in August, causingconsiderable disruption to social security, immigration, agriculturaladministration and other areas. Thedispute focused on accusations of double standards, following the awarding of20 per cent pay rises to members of Parliament and 8.7 per cent increases forexecutives in the federal government, but only 2 per cent for unionisedemployees.InJuly, a conciliation board recommended that junior public sector staff be givena 3 per cent rise and a CA$1,000 signing bonus. “Thatis a minimum.
