Burwell and U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy for a tour of Orange County Mosquito Control to discuss ongoing mosquito-borne illness prevention efforts.“Providing for the health and safety of our community is one of the fundamental roles of government. In Orange County, we have an extremely skilled team and a robust mosquito control program,” Mayor Jacobs said. “Our team works seamlessly with the Florida Department of Health and our federal partners to do everything possible to proactively combat the spread of the Zika virus and other mosquito borne-illness.”Orange County Mosquito Control’s field team works proactively to eliminate sources of standing water such as pool tarps, tires, buckets, empty flower pots and other small containers that can collect water. These efforts help eliminate the possible breeding grounds for mosquitoes.Since February, Florida has tracked more than 300 cases of the virus. Orange County has documented 36 travel-related cases. Osceola County has 17 cases, Seminole County recorded 11, and Lake County had one case.U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia M. Burwell, Orange County Director of Health Services Dr. Chris Hunter, and Surgeon General Vivek Murthy.Between June 1 and July 21, team members at Mosquito Control had conducted more than 7,500 field visits in response to suspected and confirmed cases, along with proactive measures and at the request of Orange County residents. “We approach all suspect cases as if positive. This response helps us to mitigate any potential delay that could be attributed to pending laboratory results,” explains Acting Manager for Mosquito Control Kelly Deutsch.“In addition, while the Florida Department of Health asks mosquito control personnel to focus targeted spraying 225 yards of an area of suspect Zika, Orange County Mosquito Control has elected to expand efforts to a 500-yard radius.”Orange County Mosquito Control has a working laboratory where researchers examine mosquitoes and larva found within the community. This information helps Orange County identify target areas for treatment and migration trends. Their efforts range from removing standing water, which serves as a breeding area, to providing research and information to partner agencies, along with spraying communities to rid them of mosquitoes. They have experience monitoring and combating various mosquito–borne diseases such as the West Nile virus, St. Louis Encephalitis, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, Dengue Fever and the Chikungunya virus.In addition, Orange County Mosquito Control has submitted more than 1,100 mosquitoes and 65 samples to the Bronson Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory in Kissimmee, Florida. The lab tests for mosquito-borne illnesses such as Zika, Chikungunya and Dengue fever. All results have been negative.“We have been working vigorously to mitigate the spread of the virus, but we need more funding to pay for staff, equipment, control materials and monitoring supplies,” Mayor Jacobs added. “The best way to fight this virus is to be proactive.”Federal funds have helped Orange County Mosquito Control hire 10 additional employees to assist with field work and encourage residents to be aware and vigilant about emptying containers of standing water. The recent funding of approximately $120,000 has also helped purchase additional equipment. Nonetheless, ongoing federal support will be crucial to the success of Orange County’s Mosquito Control program.In order to prevent mosquito-borne diseases it is important to remember to drain standing or still water to help eliminate breeding. Apply insect repellants containing DEET to repel mosquitoes and wear long sleeves, pants and socks to prevent bites.Visit Orange County’s Mosquito Safety website for more information.

Collier printTCU Lettermen’s Association added to its list of distinguished athletes Thursday with a class of inductees that included two active coaches. Director of Volleyball Jill Kramer (Volleyball) and graduate assistant coach Corey Santee (Men’s Basketball) joined Austin Adams (Baseball), Kelly Crowell-Goehl (Women’s Diving), Pete Jordan (Men’s Golf) and Col. Sue Ann Sandusky (Rifle) in the Hall of Fame, 50 years after Dutch Meyer and Davey O’Brien were members of its inaugural class in 1967.“We’re celebrating 50 years tonight of the Hall of Fame, which is really cool,” TCU athletic director Chris Del Conte said.  Kramer is the third active head coach in the Hall of Fame. She joins men’s basketball coach Jamie Dixon and men’s tennis coach David Roditi. A member of the Class of 1999, Kramer was TCU’s first scholarship volleyball player and holds the program records for kills and total career attacks. She also sits atop the leaderboard for the Horned Frog single-season records in kills, kills per game and total attacks as well as two Western Athletic Conference records. Her induction marks the first volleyball player to enter the Hall.“I’d consider myself the lucky one that gets to represent TCU volleyball up here for the first time because this is about my teammates, I’m representing them here and all the players that I have coached,” Kramer said. “I think I had the opportunity to do a lot of firsts here, that’s one of the big reasons I came to school year, and for them to honor our sport is really cool.”Last night was very special!Congrats to @jillkramer on becoming the first #TCUVB player into the @TCULettermen Hall of Fame!#GoFrogs— TCU Volleyball (@TCUvolleyball) October 20, 2017Santee, who is on Dixon’s staff, graduated in 2005 and is the all-time assist leader and the second all-time leading scorer with 1,832 points.

first_img By Digital AIM Web Support – February 3, 2021 WhatsApp WASHINGTON (AP) — In another reversal of Trump-era policy, the Biden administration on Wednesday dropped its discrimination lawsuit against Yale University that alleged the Ivy League school was illegally discriminating against Asian American and white applicants. Federal prosecutors said the Justice Department’s underlying investigation, aimed at ensuring Yale complies with federal anti-discrimination laws, continues. The government accused Yale in October of violating civil rights laws because it “discriminates based on race and national origin in its undergraduate admissions process, and that race is the determinative factor in hundreds of admissions decisions each year.” The investigation stemmed from a 2016 complaint by the New Jersey-based Asian American Coalition for Education coalition against Yale, Brown and Dartmouth. Yale said its practices comply with decades of Supreme Court precedent and that it looks at “the whole person” when deciding which applicants to admit. A department spokesperson said in a statement that it was dropping the suit “in light of all available facts, circumstances, and legal developments” but didn’t specify further. The government also notified Yale that it had withdrawn its determination letter that the university discriminated based on race and national origin. Yale was gratified and pleased by those two developments, spokesperson Karen Peart said. But Swan Lee, a co-founder of the group behind the complaint, called it “a racist decision because it preserves discrimination in education. It’s a setback in our fight against racial discrimination against Asian Americans in education.” The change in administrations brought an end to the suit, but the challenge to college admissions policies that take race into account is alive in a case against Harvard’s practices. The challengers have lost at each round in the lower courts, but their appeal is expected in the coming weeks at the Supreme Court, where a conservative majority may well be more receptive. “The challenge to race-based affirmative action in higher education will continue regardless of any change in the Department of Justice,” said Edward Blum, the president of Students for Fair Admissions, which filed the lawsuit against Harvard. The department, under President Donald Trump, had backed the challenge in the lower courts. The Yale investigation also found that the university used race as a factor in multiple steps of the admissions process and that Yale “racially balances its classes.” The Supreme Court has ruled colleges and universities may consider race in admissions decisions but has said that must be done in a narrowly tailored way to promote diversity and should be limited in time. Schools also bear the burden of showing why their consideration of race is appropriate. “I am totally shocked by the Biden DOJ’s hasty decision to drop the Yale lawsuit, only eight days after President Biden signed an executive order claiming to combat anti-Asian discrimination,” said Yukong Zhao, the president of the Asian American Coalition for Education. But the decision was lauded by other civil rights groups, including one run by the Biden administration’s incoming assistant attorney general for civil rights. “It has been proven in the courts that race-conscious admissions programs are lawful, and Black students and other students of color who come from all walks of life can rest a little easier knowing our government is looking to lift them up, not divide and suppress,” said David Hinojosa, director of the Educational Opportunities Project at the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. The group’s president, Kristen Clarke, is Biden’s nominee to run the Justice Department’s civil rights division Biden’s Justice Department is working to undo Trump policies, including “zero tolerance,” the immigration policy that was responsible for family separations. Also Wednesday, the Supreme Court agreed to requests from the Biden administration to put off arguments in two challenges to Trump-era policies involving the U.S.-Mexico border wall and asylum-seekers as Biden works to change the policies that had been challenged in court. ——— Associated Press writers Mark Sherman, Collin Binkley in Boston, and Dave Collins in Hartford, Connecticut, contributed to this report.

first_imgHome » News » Housing Market » Bank of England to consult on buy-to-let ‘prudence’ Bank of England to consult on buy-to-let ‘prudence’31st March 20160633 Views The Bank of England has published a consultation paper (CP) which seeks views on its proposals which could result in strict limitations for buy-to-let mortgages.David Smith (left), the Residential Landlords Association’s Policy Director said, “The Bank needs to be careful that it does not over-react to the current surge in buy to let applications which are aiming to beat the tax increases coming in April.‘These include a three percentage points extra levy on stamp duty and abolition of mortgage interest relief. It is likely that the impact of these will significantly reduce the demand for borrowing.“We would urge the Bank to tread carefully and avoid any premature moves that could stifle the supply of the 1 million rental properties the country desperately needs.”The consultation paper says:Underwriting standards for buy-to-let mortgage contracts – CP11/16​BackgroundThis consultation paper (CP) seeks views on a supervisory statement which sets out the Prudential Regulation Authority’s (PRA’s) proposals regarding its expectations of minimum standards that firms should meet when underwriting buy-to-let mortgage contracts. The proposals also include clarification regarding application of the small and medium enterprises (SME) supporting factor on buy-to-let mortgages.Summary of proposalsThe proposals seek to ensure that firms conduct their buy-to-let business in a prudent manner. They aim to prevent a marked loosening in buy-to-let underwriting standards and to curtail inappropriate lending and the potential for excessive credit losses.The proposals to clarify expectations in relation to application of the SME supporting factor are aimed at enhancing the transparency and consistency of the PRA’s regulatory approach.The proposals also support the Financial Policy Committee’s ability to act from a macroprudential perspective.The proposals are relevant to PRA-regulated firms that undertake buy-to-let lending that is not already subject to FCA regulation. The clarification regarding the SME supporting factor is relevant for firms bound by the Capital Requirements Regulation (575/2013) (CRR).The CP proposes:i) a set of expectations for firms that underwrite UK buy-to-let mortgage contracts where the land is intended to be occupied as a dwelling on the basis of a rental agreement, in pounds sterling, regardless of whether the borrower is an individual or limited company; andii) a clarification in relation to application of the SME supporting factor on buy-to-let mortgages.Chapter 2 outlines the PRA’s proposals. Chapter 3 considers the PRA’s statutory obligations in relation to the proposals. Appendix 1 details the draft supervisory statement.The supervisory statement follows a PRA review of underwriting standards in the buy-to-let sector which covered 31 firms (c.92% of the market). This review highlighted concerns about lenders’ growth plans and how they might meet them. In particular, there is a risk that firms relax underwriting standards, thus affecting their safety and soundness. The findings suggested a need for microprudential action.ResponsesThis consultation closes on Wednesday 29 June 2016.
