The endowment was for the post of professor of vaccinology. The post, currently held by Professor Adrian Hill, is now known as the Lakshmi Mittal and Family Professorship of Vaccinology in recognition of this support. Professor Hill has been principal investigator for the Oxford Covid-19 vaccine trial.In addition, Bvlgari has helped Oxford University in support of its research into Covid-19 and vaccine development. It is funding the purchase of scientific equipment as well as scholarships for two students for the duration of their DPhil studies in vaccine research, covering course fees, the cost of IT support and laboratory items.Elsewhere, Dolly Parton has also donated in support of research into a coronavirus vaccination. She announced on Instagram back in April that she was making a $1m donation to Vanderbilt University Medical Center to help its research.

Oxford’s vaccine research & development receives £3.3m donation from Saïd family The University of Oxford has received a £3.33 million donation from the Saïd family, enabling it to secure a professorship in vaccinology for the future.Professor Sarah Gilbert, the inaugural post holder, will continue her research in the field, with the donation also helping to keep Oxford at the forefront of vaccine development.According to the university’s Development Office, Professor Gilbert has 25 years of experience in the development of vaccines against malaria, influenza and emerging and re-emerging viral pathogens, including Lassa, Nipah and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS). In 2018 she began preparing for “Disease X”, the World Health Organisation’s term for a hypothetical, unknown pathogen that could cause a future epidemic.The genetic sequence of SARS-CoV-2 was released on 11 January and later that same day, Professor Gilbert and her team began designing Oxford’s Covid-19 vaccine: ChAdOx1 nCoV-19. Underpinned by Professor Gilbert’s research, this became the first Covid-19 vaccine to enter into Phase III clinical trials. Professor Gilbert has been working with the Oxford Vaccine Group, teams within the Jenner Institute and a network of international collaborators to test its efficacy in over 20,000 trial participants around the world.Boosted by a further £1.66 million in matched funding from the University, the Saïd family’s gift has enabled the permanent endowment of Professor Gilbert’s post, which will now be known as the Saïd Professorship of Vaccinology.Professor Gavin Screaton, Head of the Medical Sciences Division, said:“We are deeply grateful to Wafic Saïd and his family for their incredibly generous gift. By securing the future of this important post, the University will be able to continue to deliver and indeed accelerate its world-leading vaccine development research – work that will have an impact on lives globally both during this crisis and as other such challenges arise in the future.”Wafic Saïd said: Advertisementlast_img read more

North Carolina activists oppose legal shield of cop violence

first_imgRaleigh, N.C.At 1:01 a.m. on June 26, the Senate of the North Carolina General Assembly passed Senate Bill 168 and sent it to the governor to sign. The bill was 17 pages of regulations attacking most remaining forms of oversight in custody deaths by law enforcement. Street art classified as vandalism to justify Raleigh Police Department raid. Credit: Smash Racism RaleighThe bill was the state government’s direct attack on the anti-police and anti-prison mass uprisings taking place across North Carolina, especially in Raleigh and Charlotte.In North Carolina, all documentation of police misconduct, including use of force, vehicle pursuits, individual officer stop data, and other hiring and policing policy, is classified in personnel files and made inaccessible under public records requests.  However, medical records used by the state Department of Health and Human Services about treating people subjected to police violence or of autopsies of deaths are still available. SB168 would limit access to all medical records, placing even these documents beyond the reach of the public.The Triad Abolition Project, a Winston-Salem-based decarceration group, and NC BORN, the statewide Black-led socialist group based in Raleigh, immediately came together to demand a governor’s veto of SB168.The project launched a statewide pressure campaign. NC BORN, already in the streets as they had been daily, marched on Gov. Roy Cooper’s Executive Mansion and set up a 24-hour encampment outside. July Fourth was the fifth day of round-the-clock protest at the mansion and the 35th day of daily anti-racist, anti-incarceration protests. Though police have repeatedly arrested those perceived to be core organizers, the protests have nevertheless carried on.Organizers were especially moved to action by the case of John Neville. On May 30, the Triad Abolition Project wrote: “State records show that 2019 was a record year for jail deaths and suicides. The records show that over 40% of deaths involved supervision failures. Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office submitted a death report of John Neville that is missing all information regarding supervision; it’s missing the name of the jailer and reports of when John Neville was OK and when he was in distress; his cause of death is listed as ‘unknown.’” DHHS did not investigate the jail after John Neville’s death. The medical examiner’s report has not been produced. If not vetoed by the governor, SB168 would allow the medical examiner’s report to remain shielded from the public.Cops attack Raleigh encampmentPolice have subjected the encampment at the Executive Mansion to raids and violence. In mid-afternoon of July 1, a multi-police-agency team converged on the demonstrators and placed four under arrest, including an NC BORN leader who had previously been singled out for a targeted arrest. Because police arrests of NC BORN leaders were so obviously political, magistrates had been unwilling to co-sign them, and none of the leaders faced charges. In the July 1 arrests, the police charged the demonstrators with vandalism. The cops used the pretext that demonstrators had written “VETO SB168” on sidewalks outside the mansion. Despite the cop raid, demonstrators successfully held the camp, and all those arrested were freed within a few hours after arguments by members of the National Lawyers Guild.The next day, July 2, police struck in the early morning hours, believing demonstrators would be unprepared. The cops targeted security lookouts and medics and arrested 11 people. But the news galvanized public support, and the demonstration grew to its largest yet, even as arrests were taking place.A few hours later those arrested were freed, and the movement was stronger than ever.On July 3, as police once again converged on the encampment, a group of activists staged a solidarity march to divide the police forces. This action led to a traffic blockade during Friday rush hour on Capital Boulevard, a major Raleigh thoroughfare. The cops responded with an additional 18 arrests, bringing the total NC BORN arrests to 35 in 33 days. All demonstrators were freed by legal teams within hours, the main encampment remained secure, and once again numbers grew.NC BORN’s counterprogramming for “Independence Day” — arts, culture, food and celebrations of liberation — went off without a hitch and without arrests. The people reclaimed their space and continued their ambitious political program for abolition of all forms of violence by the capitalist state.

His maternal and paternal grandfathers and father were in the service.“He grew up in military communities and understands what life is like in an Army family,” Laura Lamoureux, his mother, said. “He has experienced the camaraderie and strong connections that develop within the military community.”Col. John Lamoureux, Chris’ father, is the Army chief of staff of the Regional Health Command at Fort Sam Houston, Texas. Col. Lamoureux said Chris first joined Junior ROTC (JROTC) to fill in a gap in his high school schedule.Through the JROTC program Chris found a group of people who shared his goals and ultimately led him to his journey in the military, Col. Lamoureux saidWhile in JROTC, Chris was selected for programs allowing him to visit military academies, including the United States Military Academy at West Point.Chris was accepted to West Point and planned to attend, but a tour of TCU would change that plan.“I guess you can say it was everything I wanted in a school,” he said. “Plus it’s a beautiful campus and the people here are so friendly.”Chris said he chose TCU over West Point because he wanted to have the college student lifestyle and still participate in ROTC.“It’s one of the better decisions I made in life,” he said.By his first year at TCU, he was awarded a four-year scholarship and had a signed contract with ROTC.Sgt. 1st Class Theodis Johnson, ROTC military science instructor, has worked with Chris since his first year.“Chris has grown as a person and leader since starting ROTC,” Johnson said. “His experiences in different leadership positions in the program have increased his ability to handle different situations and to work with people to produce successful outcomes.”As a first-year cadet Chris Lamoureux was part of a squad. Sophomore year he acquired more responsibilities as a team leader, and junior year he was named 1st Sgt. and squad leader. Currently, he serves as the Cadet Battalion Commander of the University of North Texas, Baylor University and TCU.Chris said when he first visited the TCU Army ROTC office, he saw his friend’s name as Battalion Commander on a board.“I remember thinking, ‘I hope that’s me someday,’” he said. “Five years later, here I am.”Chris said that currently he and his staff are working on the training schedule for cadets next semester. He also directly interacts with the commanders at all three schools on a weekly basis.Col. Lamoureux said Chris is great at building cohesive teams.“He is a natural leader and team builder,” Col. Lamoureux said. “He now has had the opportunity to experience what it really means to lead by example, never asking folks to do anything he was not prepared to do himself.”In addition to his role as Battalion Commander, Chris is a full-time student who is involved with campus life. He said he has been part of Soul Steppers and NAACP. He is also involved with Psi Chi, an international honor society in psychology, and the Student Veterans Alliance.Cadet Operations Sgt. Maj. Mikayla Hamilton said getting involved is part of Chris’ spontaneous nature.“He’s so involved in campus life it’s crazy,” Hamilton said. “Chris is a spontaneous friend. If you don’t know someone who will be willing to go do or try something new with, he’s probably your guy.”Chris can lighten the mood in ROTC, which is sometimes needed, and he’s a compassionate, yet firm, leader, Hamilton said“I think he’s pretty capable of analyzing how people tick and that will go a long way in furthering his career,” she said.Concerning his career, Chris recently received his branch assignment and will commission as an active duty 2 Lt. in the Ordnance Corps, which supplies ammunition to all the branches.“TCU Army ROTC was fortunate to have him as a part of our program,” Johnson said. “He will be successful as a leader because of his outstanding work ethics and a desire to see others succeed. The Army and the Ordinance Corps will be receiving a great leader with much to offer.”Chris said he won’t forget the impact TCU had on him.“I feel like coming to TCU has made me part of the family,” he said. “I will never forget the friends I have made and the lessons I’ve learned.”Chris will commission May 6, 2016, and attend Basic Officer Leader Course training at Fort Lee, Virginia.“I’ve had my mind set on active duty military since I was a boy,” he said. “It has been a long road, but I have successfully come to the end.  It is time to start the next leg of my journey.” ReddIt Cristian Migliaresehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/cristian-migliarese/ TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Chris Lamoureux at the TCU Army ROTC Fall Leadership Development Exercise on Nov. 7.

Ojha, also worked as Principal Correspondent at HT Media Ltd and at Honeywell as an executive in corporate communications. She and her husband currently reside in Houston, Texas. Share Save Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Recently, Fitch Ratings assigned an RPS3 U.S. residential primary servicer rating for prime product to PHH Mortgage Corporation (PHH). The rating agency also assigned a stable outlook, reflecting PHH’s experienced senior management and staff, enterprise-wide risk environment, compliance protocols and investments in its servicing technology.Fitch rates residential mortgage primary, master, and special servicers on a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 being the highest rating. Within some of these rating levels, Fitch further differentiates ratings by plus (+) and minus (-) as well as the flat rating.According to Fitch’s findings as of June 30, 2018, PHH serviced approximately 586,609 loans with an unpaid principal balance of $129 billion, of which 550,942 loans represented subservicing arrangements.Though Fitch did not publicly rate the credit and financial strength of PHH, it said that the Fitch financial institutions group had reviewed and provided an assessment of the servicer’s financial condition. “A company’s financial condition is a component of Fitch’s servicer rating analysis,” the agency said in a statement.According to Fitch, PHH, which announced its planned merger with Ocwen Financial Corp in February 2018, is currently targeting closing the transaction by the third quarter of 2018. The merger includes migrating Ocwen’s loan portfolio from its legacy proprietary system onto PHH’s system, which utilizes Black Knight Mortgage Processing Solutions (BKMPS) and LoanSphere Mortgage Servicing Package (MSP). “Fitch believes that the potential synergies realized with the merger, including an enhanced technology environment, best practices developed for compliance, audit and loan servicing processes, multi-layered disaster recovery, and business continuity contingencies, could prove beneficial if developed properly in the resulting single entity,” the ratings agency said while assigning a stable outlook for PHH.In the first quarter of 2018, PHH completed its initiative of exiting capital-intensive businesses, exiting its private label services origination business to focus only on subservicing loans for others and maintaining a portfolio retention business.Some other factors that led to PHH giving an enhanced rating to PHH included the servicer’s robust enterprise risk management hierarchy that identified, monitored, and addressed risk including proactive change management processes, quality assurance, and quality control protocols as well as a multi-dimensional testing program. PHH utilizes a hybrid model for internal audit where oversight is retained among a small group of auditors internally and the bulk of audit work is co-sourced to a third party auditing firm.Fitch said that it had not identified any instances of material non-compliance In both the Reg AB and USAP reports of PHH for the year ended Dec. 31, 2017.  Print This Post Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / PHH Servicer Ratings Rise Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Related Articles Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Servicing Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Previous: Senator Calls for Action on Zombie Properties Next: How the Fed’s MBS Holdings Stimulate Housing Fitch Loan PHH portfolio Servicing 2018-08-13 Radhika Ojha The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Subscribelast_img read more

2-year-old dies after family apprehended at southern border

CBP officials say human smuggling operations target rural areas to evade authorities. Nearly 100 migrants died in the Rio Grande Valley near McAllen, Texas, last year.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
