State agency kills controversial Juneau parking plan

first_imgCommunity | Juneau | State GovernmentState agency kills controversial Juneau parking planFebruary 12, 2018 by Jacob Resneck, KTOO Share:Acreage along Juneau’s downtown waterfront won’t be converted into a parking lot for state workers after all. That’s following a state agency canceling a tentative deal to lease a parcel owned by the Alaska Mental Health Trust and convert it into 102 parking spaces.This map appeared in a Dec. 22, 2017, notice from the Alaska Department of Administration seeking proposals for 100 off-street parking spaces in the area bounded by the red lines.The City and Borough of Juneau criticized the arrangement. The city has been pressing the trust to sell the 2.8-acre property to developers seeking to build a marina and marine science attraction to be called the Alaska Ocean Center that would connect to the city’s seawalk.The developers have complained they offered more than 3 million for the land – above its assessed value – but the Trust Land Office has not responded for more than a year.Bob Janes, an organizer behind the proposed Alaska Ocean Center, said the parking lot had threatened his project. Now he says he and his partners will continue to press for the trust to sell.“We are renewing our pursuit of purchasing the property,” Janes said Monday. “We hope that Mental Health (Trust Authority) gets in contact with us and it happens quickly.”The parking lot plan came about late last year after the state Department of Administration released a request for proposals seeking 100 parking spaces around the State Office Building.It had awarded the bid to the Trust Land Office on Jan. 31. But it revoked the tender on Friday, citing regulations allowing it to reject offers that aren’t in the state’s best interest.Editor’s note: KTOO’s building sits on land leased from the Alaska Mental Health Trust Authority. KTOO has also applied for and received occasional grants for special reporting projects from the authority.Share this story:last_img read more

Allergy-proof? Intelligence booster? FDA looks to rein in health claims for baby formula

first_imgIn an unusual move, the agency served up a set of scientific standards for infant formula manufacturers to meet, before touting their products for treatment or prevention of certain medical conditions.This draft proposal suggests that manufacturers conduct research trials and otherwise gather evidence to back assertions of how their products actually function in a baby’s body. Manufacturers and others have 60 days to comment, before the agency adopts a final guideline.advertisement Watch: Saving Bentley’s brain: Daring surgery aims to fix a gaping hole in baby’s skull HealthAllergy-proof? Intelligence booster? FDA looks to rein in health claims for baby formula Privacy Policy By Sheila Kaplan Sept. 8, 2016 Reprints APStock Tags FDAinfancynutrition Please enter a valid email address. Newsletters Sign up for Daily Recap A roundup of STAT’s top stories of the day. The move marks the first time that the FDA has proposed a standard, even a voluntary one such as this, for companies making health claims about a specific food. (The FDA did develop a standard for dietary supplements broadly.) In recent years, formula manufacturers have increasingly developed specialized products, often with vitamins, other nutrients, or additives, which they target to parents eager for their babies to have superior immune systems, digestion, or brains.“Because infancy is a unique, vulnerable period when critical growth and development occur,” the FDA wrote, “great care is necessary to ensure the safety of all modifications to infant formula, even if the purpose of the modification is to more closely mirror the composition and health benefits of human milk.”Agency spokeswoman Lauren Kotwicki said the FDA has seen an increase in the use of health claims on infant formula labeling and that manufacturers who want to use such claims have asked the agency how to substantiate them.The FDA’s action follows publication of a report in the May 2016 issue of Clinical Pediatrics, which studied the labels of 22 infant formula products and found that 13 made claims about treating colic and gastrointestinal symptoms without proof.“There is insufficient evidence to support the claims that removing or reducing lactose, using hydrolyzed or soy protein or adding pre-/probiotics to formula benefits infants with fussiness, gas, or colic,” the authors wrote. “Yet claims like ‘soy for fussiness and gas’ encourage parents who perceive their infants to be fussy to purchase modified formula. Increased regulation of infant formula claims is warranted.” WASHINGTON — If you’ve ever seen the astonishing array of infant formula sold in supermarkets, you might wonder if the stuff can really make your baby smarter, allergy-proof, or less colicky, as advertised.The Food and Drug Administration wonders the same thing.On Thursday, the FDA suggested that the $3 billion infant formula industry consider proving its claims before selling the products.advertisement Leave this field empty if you’re human: Dr. Peter Belamarich, a professor at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and the study’s lead author, welcomed the FDA’s action.“They are trying to rein it in a little bit,” Belamarich said. “It’s an attempt to put the claims under greater scientific scrutiny. It’s a good and terrifically important development.”Belamarich, who works at the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore, said he sees plenty of confused parents.“We see it every day, Belamarich said. “People switching formulas in the hope that what is most often normal baby behaviors is going to be treated by switching formula. There are so many products and so many claims.” Related:last_img read more

Eight Talking Points as Portlaoise fall short in Leinster club

first_imgHome Sport GAA Eight Talking Points as Portlaoise fall short in Leinster club SportGAA Craig Rogers of Portlaoise reacts after his penalty was saved by Kilmacud Crokes’ goalkeeper David Nestor. Picture: Daire Brennan/Sportsfile Brought to you in association with Joe Mallon MotorsWhat a game of football that was. Portlaoise’s Leinster Club SFC campaign ended in dramatic circumstances in Parnell Park this afternoon as they went down by three points to Dublin champions Kilmacud Crokes. Here we look through some of the big talking points from what was classic battle.1 – Late dramaPortlaoise trailed 1-17 to 3-8 as the game entered the final minute but they were thrown a lifeline when sub Scott Lawless was fouled in the square after a high ball in from Kieran Lillis and David Coldrick gave a penalty.But Craig Rogers – on as a sub early in the second half for Ricky Maher – saw his effort go too high for his liking and David Nestor turned it out for a ’45.Rogers had made a big impact when he came on and his 47th minute goal after a lovely one-two with Paul Cahillane drew Portlaoise level. Cucially, however, Portlaoise wouldn’t score again and three points in a row from Crokes got them over the line.Rogers penalty miss will haunt him but he had a fine season with Portlaoise and could count himself somewhat unlucky to be left off the starting team today.2 – Dublin opposition end Portlaoise season once againSince Portlaoise beat Kilmacud Crokes in the 2004 Leinster Club SFC semi-final, they have faced Dublin opposition eight times. On each occasion they have fallen short.In the vast majority of instances they have performed and competed well but they just can’t get over the line. Kilmacud Crokes (twice – 2010 and 2018), St Vincent’s (three times – 2007, 2013 and 2014), Ballymun Kickhams (2012), St Brigid’s (2011) and Ballyboden St Enda’s (2015) have all gotten the better of Portlaoise and while Brigid’s were the only ones not to go on and win Leinster and Crokes, Vincent’s and Ballyboden have all won All Irelands after beating Portlaoise, it’s a run of losses that is hard to take.3 – Shooting woesPortlaoise have rarely been as off form in front of goals. They hit nine wides in the opening half and continued their erratice shooting in the second half. The quality of the opposition was higher than anything they’d faced before this year but they’ll be kicking themselves over so many missed chances.As Malachy McNulty pointed out afterwards, they missed two scoreable frees and two ’45s in the first half and a penalty in the second.That on top of the ones from play – not just wides but shots dropped short too – and you can see where they lapsed. Crokes were far more efficient in front of goals and it made all the difference.A dejected Scott Lawless of Portlaoise at the final whistle. Picture: Daire Brennan/Sportsfile4 – Defence under siegeThe Portlaoise defence was under serious pressure in the opening half and Kilmacud Crokes really made it count. From their second minute goal – when Dara Mullin waltzed through the defence and then side-stepped Graham Brody – to the end of the half, they really had the Portlaoise backline on the back foot.David Seale did well on Crokes marquee player Paul Mannion but Dara Mullin and Callum Pearson caused problems and Pat Burke was influential too.Portlaoise tightened up as the game went on but they were always chasing it.5 – Quality contestThe game was of an incredibly high standard and the action was non-stop, particulary in the second half. At half time Crokes led 1-11 to 2-5 – with every single score coming from play and 13 different players on target.It wasn’t until 10 minutes into the second half that we had the first score from a free and of the 4-25 scored in the game, just four points of it was frees.There was also a number of fine scores from play, good blocks and a succession of high fielding. And that’s without even getting to drama of the final minute.6 – Big men stand up – and incredibly intense gamePortlaoise got plenty of joy around midfield with Kieran Lillis and Ciaran McEvoy doing very well on the Crokes kickouts and Conor Boyle, Brian Glynn and Frank Flanagan all very effective too.They all had fine games in what was a physical contest. Portlaoise matched Crokes in that department with their big men all competing very well. Portlaoise also applied plenty of pressure to Crokes up the field with Paul Cahillane’s well-taken goal in the first half a fine example of that as they turned over Dublin defender Cian O’Sullivan on a short kickout.Cahir Healy of Portlaoise in action against Craig Dias of Kilmacud Crokes7 – No rest for dual playersPortlaoise corner-back Frank Flanagan, centre-back Cahir Healy and midfielder Ciaran McEvoy will all be back in action next Saturday when they line out for the Portlaoise hurlers in the Leinster club IHC final.It continues a hectic spell for all three – but in particular Healy and McEvoy – who have played either hurling or football championship on almost every weekend since the end of July. Flanagan missed out on the early stages of both as he was in America for the summer.Graigue-Ballycallan from Kilkenny await in Nowlan Park next Saturday which is sure to be another gruelling affair. We can only salute their energy.8 – What now for Portlaoise?Portlaoise’s football season comes to an end, one that saw them claim the Laois title for the 11th time in 12 years. They’ll be disappointed at how this one got away from them and it’ll be interesting to see what changes will emerge over the winter.Will Malachy McNulty come back for a fifth season as manager? Will Bruno McCormack play for another year? He’ll be 39 next year and this was his 20th season playing with the Portlaoise seniors – with an incredible 14 medals to show for his efforts.Gary Saunders had a fine debut season, Ronan McEvoy got game time today and there’s a handful of youngsters ready to break through.Portlaoise will once again obviously be the team to beat in Laois as they go for another three-in-a-row but it the makeup of the team and management will be worth keeping an eye on.SEE ALSO – Property Watch: Five houses for sale around Laois for €250,000 TAGSKilmacud CrokesKilmacud Crokes v PortlaoiseLeinster club championshipLeinster Club SFCPortlaoise GAA By Steven Miller – 25th November 2018 Facebook Community Eight Talking Points as Portlaoise fall short in Leinster club Pinterest RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook New Arles road opens but disquiet over who was invited to official opening Pinterest WhatsApp Charlie Flanagan on Electric Picnic: ‘I’d ask organisers to consult with community leaders’ WhatsApp Previous articleBonus as Portlaoise rugby get back on track with big winNext articleRound Up: All today’s Laois U-21 hurling championship action Steven Millerhttp://www.laoistoday.ieSteven Miller is owner and managing editor of LaoisToday.ie.

N. Korean probe into military uncovers vast levels of corruption

He focuses on North Korean military matters. Please direct any questions about his articles to [email protected] RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR TAGScorruptionmilitarysoldiersprobeinvestigation SHARE News News Hamhung man arrested for corruption while working at a state-run department store center_img Facebook Twitter North Korean authorities recently began a large-scale probe into corruption in the military and have found considerable evidence of misconduct, even among some of the country’s most elite military units, Daily NK has learned.A special task force under the control of the military’s Supreme Command began the probe in early April, a military source told Daily NK on Apr. 24.The investigation could lead to large-scale dismissals of military officials found guilty of various forms of misconduct, he added.WIDESPREAD DECEPTION AND DECEITThe investigation found that the most common form of corruption was the “failure to participate in military exercises.” For example, there were cases in which soldiers failed to show up for winter military exercises earlier this year after making unclear excuses, including “business trips” and “hospital visits.”The probe also found that officers tasked with evaluating the combat readiness of military units gave unqualified military units passing marks after receiving bribes of rice, meat or cigarettes. In a development that shocked the corruption investigators, some members of the “O Jung Hup-led Seventh Regiment,” an elite military unit, were reportedly found guilty of corruption. Members of the military’s logistics arm were also found guilty of corruption. For example, logistics officers reportedly falsified records of fuel oil, various provisions and uniforms that are stored as “wartime supplies” in military bases. These resources were likely siphoned off and sold for money. “The corruption found during the investigation was larger than expected and has shocked the leadership,” another source told Daily NK. With no one knowing where the probe will head next, members of the military are “really tense,” he added. North Korean military document used in political training obtained by Daily NK. / Image: Daily NKPOLITICAL “TRAINING” CONTINUESMeanwhile, the entire military is in the midst of a political training program. The General Political Bureau, the military’s internal politburo, distributed “political study materials” on Apr. 20 and soldiers throughout the military are studying the materials and using them to conduct discussions. One document obtained by Daily NK declares that all activities within the military must be carried out according to “established rules and methods” that are based on “scientific calculations” and that any calculations and results of analysis must be properly “reviewed and evaluated.” Interestingly, the document also emphasized that the military must “overcome” wastefulness in “human labor, materials and funds.” It further entreated the military’s political officers to “take the lead” in conducting “scientific calculations” and to put forth “optimal plans” to reduce wastefulness.*Translated by Violet KimPlease direct any comments or questions about this article to [email protected] in Korean News North Korea hikes “party contributions” Russia-based workers must pay by 30-55%last_img read more

CSA harmonizing crowdfunding exemption for startups

first_imgDiverse usiness people walking toward camera rawpixel/123RF Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Related news OSC adds three to IAP The Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) is developing a proposed national rule that would introduce a startup crowdfunding exemption that’s similar to the exemption introduced back in 2015 by regulators in British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. That exemption is due to expire in May 2020.A CSA notice published Thursday indicates that the proposed national rule would have “the same key features” as the existing start-up crowdfunding exemption, “with targeted amendments to improve harmonization and the effectiveness of crowdfunding as a capital raising tool for startups and early stage businesses.” The regulators envision that the proposed new national rule would replace the existing startup exemption in the provinces that already have it, but that the national rule won’t be adopted before the existing exemption expires.In the meantime, the CSA indicates that the existing exemption will be extended so that it remains available for issuers and funding portals until a national rule is eventually adopted.

Govt crackdown on organised crime continues

first_imgGovt crackdown on organised crime continues Hon Poto Williams A major operation against multiple organised crime groups with international links will make a significant dent in drug harm and violent offending linked to organised crime networks, Police Minister Poto Williams says.“I want to take an opportunity to congratulate the Police for their role in Operation Trojan Shield. This Government is very clear that violent gangs and other criminals cannot continue to threaten, intimidate, and exploit our communities. Operation Trojan Shield highlights our commitment to disrupting organised crime and will have a major impact on organised crime syndicates in New Zealand and across the globe,” said Poto Williams.“This Government has made it very clear – we will not tolerate organised crime and gangs. Just last month we announced our intention to amend the Proceeds of Crime legislation to ensure that those involved in organised crime would have to demonstrate their assets were obtained through legitimate means. If they can’t, their assets will be seized.“This Government has put a record number of Police on the frontline with a specific focus on organised crime. This Government’s record investment in Police will include 700 additional investigators. This operation highlights the excellent impact these officers can have.“New Zealanders have the right to feel safe in their homes and their communities. This crackdown will go a long way to making New Zealanders safer by tackling the sale and supply of illicit drugs, firearm offences and serious money laundering activities that cause so much harm in our communities.“Through Operation Trojan Shield – more than 300 officers executed 37 search warrants across the North Island. Illegal firearms, methamphetamine, cannabis, and more than an estimated $1 million in cash has also been recovered. Police have also arrested 35 individuals and laid over 900 charges.“This international operation, led by the FBI and co-ordinated with the DEA, AFP, Europol and numerous other law enforcement partners from more than a dozen countries, is testament to the hard work of Police officers and the relationships they have built with their international colleagues,” Poto Williams said. /Public Release.
