first_imgPool photo by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo / Flickr.ALBANY — Saying the federal government learned nothing in how it conducted COVID-19 testing, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo called into question the proposed vaccination plan during a Friday conference call.The federal approach to use private vaccine providers such as Walgreen, CVS and other private pharmacies is a mirror of what Cuomo called a testing debacle.“The administration is locked in on this private sector plan,” Cuomo said.The current plan could take up to a year or more to vaccinate everyone, Cuomo said, adding the country can’t afford a year of time to vaccinate people. “We know the capacity of the network because we now have it engaged,” he said. “It could take one year to vaccinate. Their fundamental plan while simplistic is deeply flawed.”Cuomo said the federal government will not supply any funding to state’s to set up their own vaccination plans.“The federal govt will not provide any funding to speak of for a state to set up a supplemental network,” Cuomo said.“We just can’t afford it,” he said. “Their plan is just to fund the private sector providers. It operationally would be highly inefficient and it’s a direct mirror of the testing debacle. They’ve learned nothing.”“They handed it to the states. ‘New York State, you do the testing,’ ‘Will you provide us funding,’ ‘No,’ ” Cuomo said. “Will you provide us any materials,’ ‘No.’ This nation has been abysmal with testing.” Share:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window),Cuomo is an ass. He has led the state with the most deaths from covid than any other state in the union. He killed people in nursing homes because of his order that the homes take covid patients. Since we are the highest taxed state in the union why does he need government funding. He has to go or there will be no one left in the state.last_img read more


first_imgBy Dialogo August 03, 2011 Mexican President Felipe Calderón affirmed on 1 August that the official visit to his country by his Colombian counterpart, Juan Manuel Santos, served – among other things – to reaffirm that the two countries are united in the fight against transnational organized crime. “President Santos and I ratified our commitment to continue uniting our efforts against transnational organized-crime groups, which threaten our societies and which represent one of the greatest challenges to regional democracy,” President Calderón indicated. Along those lines, he affirmed that mechanisms for cooperation between the two countries are going to continue to be strengthened, especially the exchange of strategic information. “Today, we ratified the fact that Colombia and Mexico are more united than ever in the fight against transnational organized crime and are also ready to cooperate with third countries in the region, our brother countries in Central America in particular, to combat this plague,” the Mexican head of state stressed. During Juan Manuel Santos’s official visit to Mexico, three bilateral agreements were signed, with the objective of strengthening law-enforcement cooperation between the two countries and increasing their capacity to act against transnational organized crime more powerfully and effectively.last_img read more

Most of the defendants would face prison sentences of between five and 10 years if found guilty. The wave of arrests followed a 15-month investigation into the trafficking of the drugs from Puerto Rico and the nearby Dominican Republic. Authorities built their case on wiretaps of 15 telephones, physical surveillance and undercover purchases of cocaine and heroin, the US attorney’s office said. last_img read more


first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Sponsored Content Brought To You By Alure Home ImprovementsThere are various reasons why the Sheetrock in your home can end up with a big, unsightly hole: a stubborn nail that once balanced a picture took out a decent chunk when it collapsed; clumsy movers bumped a dresser into the wall while attempting to transport it to your bedroom; the doorknob to your bathroom struck it one too many times. Here Doug Cornwell, chief operating officer of Alure Home Improvements, demonstrates that once again he’s got us covered when it comes to home repairs that can be handled easily and speedily. In this recent installment of Alure Home Improvement’s “60 Second Fix,” he demonstrates how to fix a hole in Sheetrock.“I’m going to show you a very quick and very inexpensive way to do it, especially if you have a few pieces of leftover Sheetrock lying around,” says Cornwell.In this example, the offensive orifice is about the size of a doorknob, or, tellingly, a baseball.“It could be anything that went through the Sheetrock,” Cornwell observes.We’ll never know the culprit in this example but that’s not important because the solution is readily at hand.First, he says you want to square the space around the cavity. You don’t want to leave it as it is. He takes a box-cutter utility and makes a rectangular incision that encompasses the hole. Then he takes the handle of the knife and gently taps the Sheetrock square loose so the unwanted material can be removed. Sometimes you may have to trim the edges in case any uneven layers remain.Next, you take the replacement Sheetrock from your leftover supply. He says that it doesn’t even have to be the same thickness since Sheetrock panels can vary in width. “This is one instance where size doesn’t matter!” he says.“You want to make a cut that’s going to leave about two inches overlap on each side,” Cornwell says. “Make your first line. Then turn it over, snap it and cut it.”Rotate the patch 90 degrees and measure the perpendicular edge so you have the proper overlap margin. Make a line with your knife, score the line, cut it and snap it.“It doesn’t have to be perfect,” he says. But he emphasizes that the edges should look even.You do that for each edge of the patch. You’ll use tape and joint compound to make the patch match smoothly.Click here to learn more about Alure Home ImprovementsThat’s phase one for the front side of the patch. The next step is to trim the back side so you can get it to fit right into the hole.Cornwell shows how you line up each side of the patch, score the line with the knife, and then rotate the patch 90 degrees so you can repeat the same procedure. What he emphasizes is to make the back side of the patch slightly less than the dimensions of the hole you previously squared so the new patch will fit into the hole comfortably.You work on the back side of the Sheetrock patch so that you can carefully peel the gypsum material away without tearing the front paper layer. The front surface of the patch is intended to be larger than the squared hole’s edges so you can apply the joint compound around the hole to glue it in place, as he shows you. When the patch is ready to go into the hole, spread the joint compound around the margins of the squared hole so the paper will stick to it. Once you’ve smoothed it out, you can apply Spackle over the edges to hide the seams.“All you’re trying to do is flush up the front surfaces,” Cornwell advises. “Once you get the knack of it, it goes pretty quick.”You’re on your way to becoming an expert Sheetrocker!last_img read more


first_imgIn my last blog, I described how the Right to Financial Privacy Act (RFPA) prohibits a credit union from providing a member’s account information to a federal law enforcement agent if there is no written document – such as a warrant, subpoena, or formal written request – instructing the credit union to hand it over. However, like any good financial regulation, the RFPA contains a number of exceptions and caveats. A credit union may want to become acquainted with those exceptions before refusing to hand over information or telling a federal agent to “come back with a warrant.”The SAR ExceptionOne important exception is how the RFPA interacts with the requirements for Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs). Section 748.1 of the NCUA regulations and FinCEN guidance require credit unions to provide SAR-related information and documents without a written request or legal process. Section 748.1(c)(3), which discusses record retention for SARs, states that “[a] credit union must make all supporting documentation available to appropriate law enforcement authoritiesand its regulatory supervisory authority upon request” (emphasis added).FinCEN guidance states: ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading »last_img read more


first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Twice as many drone sightings were reported to authorities on Long Island than previously thought, revealing local reports skyrocketed in a fivefold increase since last year, new Federal Aviation Administration data shows.A half dozen reports of drones last year on LI quintupled to 34 for the first eight months of this year, bringing to at least 40 the number of increasingly popular radio-controlled unmanned aircraft reported by pilots, air traffic controllers and citizens in Nassau and Suffolk counties in the past two years, the Press has found. The Press reported last month that at least 20 such cases in LI skies had been reported to the FAA and local police since 2013.“Because pilot reports of unmanned aircraft have increased dramatically over the past year, the FAA wants to send a clear message that operating drones around airplanes and helicopters is dangerous and illegal,” the FAA said last month in a statement when it released a list of 764 sighting reports from Nov. 13, 2014 to Aug. 20. “Unauthorized operators may be subject to stiff fines and criminal charges, including possible jail time.”The local increase in drone sighting reports suggests that LI is outpacing the estimated nearly threefold national increase in sightings of drones and other suspected unmanned aerial system (UAS) reported to the FAA since last year.The new data comes as Suffolk lawmakers recently passed drone regulations. Nassau lawmakers are discussing a similar proposal, as are the towns of Huntington and Hempstead, plus the Village of Saltaire on Fire Island, where statistics show a third of Suffolk’s drone sightings were reported on the barrier island south of LI. The FAA is also drafting national drone rules expected to be released next year.Four drone sightings were reported last year over Nassau while 13 were reported there Jan. 1 through Aug. 20 of this year, according to Nassau police and the FAA. In Suffolk, two drone sightings last year rose to 21 through last month, according to stats compiled by the Press from the FAA, Suffolk police, the Ocean Beach village police on FI and East Hampton Town Police. The other four East End town police departments either didn’t receive any drone reports, don’t track such incidents, or didn’t return calls for comment.RELATED STORY: Long Island Drone Sightings Rise as Regulations Debate Takes OffSome said the data needs to be taken with a grain of salt. The Academy of Model Aeronautics, an Indiana-based hobby aircraft group, released a report this week critical of the FAA’s data, arguing that the agency overstated the number of near misses that planes have had with drones, included drones that appear to have been flying within the permissible 400-foot altitude and also included non-drones sightings that may have been balloons, birds or other airborne items.“The FAA fueled inaccurate and sensational headlines claiming that all drone reports involve ‘close calls,’ which even a casual review of the FAA’s data shows is inaccurate,” AMA said Monday in its report, A Closer Look at the FAA’s Drone Data. “In the absence of any operator identification, and given the heightened interest in commercial applications, it is inappropriate to assume, or to report, that a drone was operated by a ‘hobbyist.’”Although none of the newly released drone sightings over LI indicate a close call, 16 were well above the 400-foot ceiling set by the FAA and four were within a five-mile radius of an airport, which is also a violation of federal rules. Two of those cases were both above the 400-foot limit and within three miles of an airport. But one was of a model airplane, not a drone.Nassau police had said last month that they received nine reports of drones between April 28, 2014 and Aug. 2 of this year, but the new FAA data indicated that the agency had been notified at least three additional times during that time span than the police statistics showed. They include a JetBlue pilot spotting a drone two miles southeast of John F. Kennedy International Airport on Nov. 19, 2014, another JetBlue pilot eyeing a drone five miles southeast of JFK on Jan. 30 and the pilot of a single-engine Cirrus SR22 reporting a drone passing 300 feet below the aircraft while flying at 2,000 feet three miles west of Republic Airport in East Farmingdale on May 23, records show.A Nassau police spokesman confirmed that they received those reports, but could not say why they were not included in their tally. He added that there have been no additional drone sightings reported since last month.In addition, the Press found three other reported sightings in the FAA data that appear to have occurred over Nassau but Nassau police don’t appear to have been notified. They include a JetBlue pilot spotting a UAS at 1,800 feet, three miles southeast of JFK at 11:40 a.m. June 29, a helicopter pilot seeing a white drone 100 feet above the aircraft while flying at 500 feet eastbound along the South Shore three miles south of JFK at 12:40 a.m. Aug. 5, and another JetBlue pilot encountering a drone between 500 and 800 feet while flying eastbound along the beach after departing from JFK at 5:20 p.m. Aug. 7, records show.Suffolk police have said they don’t keep drone sighting stats, but the Press independently found four incidents this summer between June 30 and Aug. 27, all on Fire Island, two of which were over U.S. Coast Guard Station Fire Island at Robert Moses State Park. The FAA data shows Suffolk police were notified of drone sightings 10 times between Feb. 22 and Aug. 19 of this year.Suffolk police didn’t appear to be notified of an 11th sighting listed in the FAA data in which a citizen reported a dark-color, four-propeller UAS flying at 400 feet near Sunrise Highway about two miles southwest of Long Island MacArthur Airport in Ronkonkoma shortly after 7 p.m. July 24.The 10 drone sightings in which the FAA said Suffolk police were notified include: Feb. 22, 2015: Pilots for different jetliners reported a UAS—one at 8,000 feet, the other at 6,000 feet—five miles south of MacArthur Airport shortly before 4 p.m.Feb. 24, 2015: A single-engine Piper PA46 pilot reported a black-and-silver drone hovering at 5,000 feet five miles north of the Calverton Executive Airpark at 9:35 a.m.Feb. 25, 2015: A single-engine Piper PA28 pilot reported UAS at 600 feet two miles south of MacArthur Airport 1:58 p.m.April 21, 2015: A JFK-bound Delta jetliner pilot reported a cylindrical gray-and-white, 3-foot-wide UAS with a hole in the middle that passed “a wingspan away” from the left side of the jet at 10,000 feet in the vicinity of Francis S. Gabreski Airport in Westhampton Beach at 11:30 p.m.May 24, 2015: A JFK-bound Delta jetliner pilot reported a drone at 7,000 feet eight miles southwest of MacArthur Airport at 2:15 p.m.June 10, 2015: A JFK-bound Delta jetliner pilot reported spotting a white, four-engine drone flying at 1,800 feet over Robert Moses State Park on Fire Island at 2:57 p.m.June 26, 2015: An experimental aircraft pilot reported spotting a dark-colored quadcopter UAS come within 500 feet of the aircraft while flying at 3,000 feet 20 miles southeast of JFK at 8 p.m.July 4, 2015: A Delta jetliner pilot reported spotting a yellow UAS fly 500 feet below the aircraft while flying at 4,000 feet about 23 miles east of JFK at 10:55 a.m.Aug. 5, 2015: A single-engine Piper PA28 pilot reported a remote-controlled model airplane with a 5-foot wingspan flying at 1,500 feet one mile south of Republic Airport at 8:25 p.m.Aug. 9, 2015: A single-engine Cessna pilot reported spotting a UAS flying at 2,500 feet five miles southwest of East Hampton Airport at 4:40 p.m.last_img read more

first_img Carter also served as president of the Football League and a vice-president of the Football Association but it is as chairman of Everton throughout the 1980s that he will be remembered. Under his stewardship, the club won two league titles, an FA Cup and the European Cup Winners’ Cup, which is still the Toffees’ only piece of continental silverware. “Everton Football Club is deeply saddened to announce that Sir Philip Carter has passed away,” read an Everton statement. “Sir Philip died peacefully at home on Thursday morning after a short illness. “He served Everton with immense distinction over three spells. “At this time it would be appreciated if everyone can please respect the family’s wish for privacy.” Carter became a director at Goodison Park in 1973 and assumed the role of chairman five years later with Gordon Lee as manager. But the appointment of former player Howard Kendall as manager in 1981 and the subsequent backing of his boss despite calls from some quarters for him to go, would prove his shrewdest decision. The Toffees won the FA Cup in 1984, the first of three consecutive final appearances, while also reaching the League Cup final. The following year, Everton would win the First Division and the Cup Winners’ Cup, finishing second in the league the next season before being champions of England again in 1987. Former Everton chairman Sir Philip Carter has died aged 87, the club have announced. Carter’s first spell as chairman ended with Peter Johnson’s takeover of the club but he returned to his position under Bill Kenwright and would remain chairman until 2004 when he was replaced by Kenwright and appointed life president. Carter returned for a final spell on the board in 2008. “Words cannot describe my feelings of loss primarily as a friend but also as an Evertonian,” said Kenwright. “Sir Philip was simply a giant…a great man, a great leader and the very best friend and colleague anyone could ask for. I never once met him without calling him chairman. I never will. “That title was his by right. He will always have a major place in our great club’s history. “To his wondrous Lady Rita and his family we send the deepest of condolences together with our undying love and gratitude for his life.” Press Associationlast_img read more
