Assembly Majority Floor Leader Chris Holden Says Passage of State Health Care Reform Bills Are “a Big Deal”

first_img More Cool Stuff Today, the California State Legislature passed a package of major health care reform bills including SBX2-2, a Managed Care Organization (MCO) Tax, that will secure federal funding for Medi-Cal, and ABX2-1 that will increase funding for developmental disability services by $306.5 million.This is a big deal” said Assembly Majority Floor Leader Chris Holden. “Thanks to Governor Jerry Brown, a bi-partisan effort, and the hard work of all stakeholders, we aligned our Medi-Cal and MCO tax structure with federal guidelines while increasing health related funding to where it is needed most.”The current MCO financing mechanism is set to expire in June. Without a new mechanism in place that meets federal guidelines that were set in 2013, the State would forego critical federal funds. Last June, Governor Brown called for a Special Session in order to reach an agreement with the Legislature.The new MCO Tax structure under SBX2-2 meets the federal guidelines by applying a tiered uniform tax rate on all health plans. The reform is supported by a broad coalition of health insurance companies, health care providers, and health care advocacy groups.ABX2-1 will provide much needed funding for the community-based developmental services system, including a 7.5% increase for direct care staff and a 5% increase for supported and independent living. The bill also provides new funding, $11 million each year for 3 years, to address disparities in allocation of services such as parent or caregiver cultural competency training, and outreach to underserved population.“Since the recession, I’ve seen developmental disability services suffer, including non-profit organizations and individuals providing these services in my district,” said Holden. “Thankfully, with increased funding from this bill, those providing these services have the resources to help a group often neglected.” 7 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Business News First Heatwave Expected Next Week Government Assembly Majority Floor Leader Chris Holden Says Passage of State Health Care Reform Bills Are “a Big Deal” Published on Monday, February 29, 2016 | 2:54 pm Make a comment HerbeautyThese Are 15 Great Style Tips From Asian WomenHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyJennifer Lopez And Alex Rodriguez’s Wedding DelayedHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty8 Easy Exotic Meals Anyone Can MakeHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyWhat’s Your Zodiac Flower Sign?HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThe Most Heartwarming Moments Between Father And DaughterHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThe Biggest Signs You Want To Be With Your Girlfriend ForeverHerbeautyHerbeauty Top of the News center_img Your email address will not be published.

Pasadena Chapter of Armenian National Committee Receives School Board’s Genocide Resolution

first_imgHome of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena 2 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it On Thursday, March 30th, 2017, in its annual recognition of the anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, the Pasadena Unified School District’s (PUSD) Board of Education, at its well-attended meeting, issued a Genocide Resolution to the attending Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA), Pasadena Chapter’s Board of Directors.The ANCA, Pasadena Chapter has grown accustomed to the School District’s recognition of the Armenian Genocide, and its Board of Education’s solidarity in standing with the Armenian-American Community in paying homage to the 1.5 million victims, who in 1915, fell prey to the atrocities of the Ottoman Turks.“For the past 102 years, humanity has not been at a good place when it comes to justice for the Armenians,” said Pasadena ANCA Board Member Shahe Jierian. “Humanity has failed us miserably! It’s time the world redeemed itself by acting to restore every lost inch of Armenia’s historical lands to its rightful heirs and exact appropriate punitive measures on the perpetrators of the unspeakable acts committed by the Turks.”On the occasion of the Board of Education’s issuance of the resolution, Hoori Chalian, the School District’s Director of Innovative Programs, and ANCA Western Region Education Committee Member, conveyed her heartfelt message on the Genocide to the board of education, which was followed by her introduction of three teachers from Pasadena High School to whom she presented award certificates for their invaluable contributions in collaborating to enlightening students on the Armenian Genocide.The collaborative efforts of Genely Chan, Graphic Arts Teacher, Mayte Hernandez, English Teacher and William Jenkins, Social Studies teacher are highly commendable especially for facilitating an integrated project on Genocide awareness at Pasadena High School this past year.Focusing particularly on the Armenian Genocide, the Social Studies, Art, and English classes collaborated to create a major art installation which included a graphic silhouette of an Armenian Genocide death march, as well as paintings created by students and Haiku poems which expressed their feelings and ideas about the Armenian Genocide. This project encourages student lifelong learning, self- expression as well as learning about genocide effectively.Last month, the ANCA-WR Education Committee held its inaugural statewide recognition awards banquet honoring educators who incorporate a comprehensive lesson plan on Armenian Genocide studies within their curriculum. Recognition and awards were given to educators who have shown an exemplary use of technology, art, music, and/or theater in their lesson plans, while also empowering their students to apply in-depth research on the specific topics within the context of the Armenian Genocide. Ms. Chan, Ms. Hernandez and Mr. Jenkins were three of the 17 statewide recipients of this award.Ms. Chalian, the school district’s Director Innovative Programs said, “For years we have been talking about how important it is to incorporate Genocide education in our curricula…how important it is to provide appropriate professional development to support teachers in this endeavor and to make sure the necessary instructional materials are easily accessible for planning and implementing powerful instruction. I would like to commend the Ms. Chan, Ms. Hernandez and Mr. Jenkins for their collaborative effort to plan and facilitate this powerful unit of study. They are a shining example of the kind of instruction we’ve been speaking about for years – an example not only for our peers here in PUSD, but also for educators throughout the region.”Prior to the esteemed Board of Education’s “unanimous” decision to issue the Resolution, the ANCA, Pasadena Chapter delivered its message in commemoration of the 102nd anniversary of the Armenian Genocide and acknowledged that Board of Education’s support of the Resolution was of moral significance, and standing with the Armenian-American Community to find a resolution to the long-standing demands of the Armenian Nation, all the more important.The Armenian National Committee of America, Pasadena Chapter would like to extend its gratitude to, and salute the Pasadena Unified School District, its Board of Education and Superintendent Brian McDonald, for their outstanding and unwavering commitment, and in their unshakable resolve, in seeking to fight for truth and Justice.The Armenian National Committee of America – Pasadena Chapter is the oldest, largest and most influential Armenian-American grassroots organization of its kind within the City of Pasadena. Founded in 1979, the Pasadena ANCA advocates for the social, economic, cultural, and political rights of the city’s thriving Armenian-American community and promotes increased civic service and participation at the grassroots and public policy levels.For more information about PUSD, visit http://pusd.us/.For more information about ANCA Pasadena Chapter, visit their Facebook Page at www.facebook.com/anca.pasadenachapter.

When the program began in January 2012, the rate was 4.625 percent, but by December of that year, it had been adjusted to 4 percent even. On September 1, 2013, the rate was raised back up to 4.625 percent, then adjusted slightly down to 4.5 percent in July 2014.Fannie Mae noted in their announcement of the interest rate increase that “loan modification requests previously approved at the prior modification rate are not eligible to be resubmitted for approval under the new modification rate.” Sign up for DS News Daily Subscribelast_img read more

Authorizations BuildFax HOUSING Housing Starts Hurricane Maintenance remodeling 2018-10-16 Radhika Ojha Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago A direct impact from the 2017 hurricane season has led to a sharp spike in home maintenance and remodeling activities, according to a housing health report published by BuildFax on Tuesday.The report, which looks at single-family housing authorizations, existing housing maintenance, and existing housing remodeling indicated that while the annual rate of authorizations for single-family housing units picked up the pace in September, the volume for housing maintenance projects and spend increased at progressively larger margins.  The report revealed that the pace of home remodeling was leveling out after a few years of steep increases.These sharp spikes, according to the BuildFax report, are likely a result of the 2017 hurricane season.”Typically, we see dips in maintenance and remodeling activity immediately following a natural disaster, as we saw in Florida following Hurricane Irma, which caused $10 billion in insured losses. Irma’s impact on Florida in September 2017 directly contributed to last month’s 5.06 percent increase in maintenance activity,” said Jonathan Kanarek, COO, BuildFax.The trend also indicates continued improvements to the health of the supply of the existing home as homeowners look to maintain their properties instead of investing in new ones, the report revealed. The annual rate of housing volume maintenance increased by 5.06 percent in September and the year-over-year spend on housing maintenance surged 18.14 percent from September 2017.On the other hand, the report revealed that the annual rate of housing remodeling volume increased by 2.39 percent in September. Year over year the spend on remodeling increased at a rate of 15.96 percent.For new housing supply, the report revealed that single-family housing authorizations increased at a seasonally adjusted rate of 3.20 percent month over month. On an annual basis, it increased by 10.91 percent over September 2017.The data also revealed a correlation between the spike in remodeling and maintenance activities in Harris County which was affected by Hurricane Harvey last year.”Hurricane Harvey is a different story. Harris County’s non-traditional permitting strategies spiked maintenance activity shortly after landfall. This will likely impact remodeling and maintenance activity well into 2019 and we’ll be tracking these trends in depth over time,” Kanarek said.The reported spike, according to BuildFax was due to authorities in Houston’s Harris County traveling to affected areas and flagging properties that suffered damage due to the storm. “This process was implemented to designate impacted properties as eligible for FEMA funding,” the report said. “Harris County flagged tens of thousands of properties in September and October 2017, which manifested as a drastic spike in maintenance and remodeling activity.”To read the full report, click here.

Mc Conalogue says delays in MICA report are unacceptable

Deputy McConalogue says the Government is allowing the MICA issue to drag out longer than necessary as previous deadlines have not been met. In December 2015 Deputy McConalogue received correspondence from the then Minister for Housing Paudie Coffey stating that under the terms of reference a report was to be submitted by the expert panel by 31st May 2016. Minister Coffey extended the panel’s investigations by a further six months last April.Deputy McConalogue said, “The delay in finalising the work of the expert group and publishing its findings is simply unacceptable. Minister English must give the report his immediate and proper consideration and not allow it to sit on a desk.“Thousands of homes are thought to have been built with defective Mica blocks, which have now resulted in major structural problems. The families whose homes are affected by Mica are stuck in a very stressful situation and Ministerial intervention is needed in a bid to resolve it.“Many families have been living in unstable houses for years without any resolution in sight. We have seen a similar situation in Dublin and some commuter counties where pyrite has rendered many homes uninhabitable. The Government set up a compensation scheme to deal with that issue and I believe a similar scheme needs to be implemented for homeowners in Donegal.“This issue needs immediate action and I have called on Minister English to provide assistance as a matter of urgency and set a date for the completion of the panel’s report. It is a living nightmare for those families whose homes are affected and the Government need to address the issue immediately.” WhatsApp Pinterest A Donegal Deputy says delays in completing the MICA expert panel report are totally unacceptable.Deputy Charlie Mc Conalogue says the Government is allowing the MICA issue to drag out longer than necessary, and a number of deadlines have not been met.Last December, the then Housing Minister Paudie Coffey promised a report bythe end of May, in April, his successor Minister Damien English extended that by a further six months.Deputy McConalogue says Minister English should give this immediate attention, and address what he called “this living nightmare” for those families whose homes are affected…………..Audio Playerhttp://www.highlandradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/cmccmica.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume._____________________ 75 positive cases of Covid confirmed in North Facebook Man arrested on suspicion of drugs and criminal property offences in Derry Further drop in people receiving PUP in Donegal Homepage BannerNews Pinterest By admin – September 22, 2016 Main Evening News, Sport and Obituaries Tuesday May 25th RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR 365 additional cases of Covid-19 in Republic WhatsApp Facebook Mc Conalogue says delays in MICA report are unacceptable Gardai continue to investigate Kilmacrennan firelast_img read more

FBI task force focuses on human trafficking amid coronavirus

first_imgkrblokhin/iStockBy AARON KATERSKY, ABC News(NEW YORK) — Despite the pandemic, human trafficking persists. The coronavirus is now working its way into advertisements for women being sold for sex, according to the FBI.The FBI child exploitation and human trafficking task force in New York is currently working on a number of cases in which victims trafficked for sex were advertised as being virus-free or willing to wear a mask and gloves.“They’re trying to work in safety measures to ensure that customers would feel at ease to meet up with people in the ads,” FBI special agent Brian Gander told ABC News.“If you put yourself in the minds of people advertising people for sex, it’s more about making money than ethics. They do whatever it will take to make that money,” he continued.Gander declined to specify how many human trafficking cases referenced COVID-19 but he said it’s “a lot.”“We have some cases where it’s referenced in ads, that extra layer of safety, supposedly, that the people might be wearing masks or gloves to put customers at ease,” he said.This is Crime Victims’ Rights Week and the FBI is putting special focus on victims of human trafficking. Many are children who are forced into the sex trade by criminals who coerce, drug, assault and mentally abuse them.Enforcement continues during the outbreak, meaning agents and the NYPD officers working with them take extra precautions.“There’s just another layer that’s involved that we have to be aware of,” said Gander. “Now we have to take into consideration the safety of the detectives, the agents and everyone going out on recovery operations.”The FBI New York field office works with dozens of community and faith-based organizations to link human trafficking with agencies that offer services: https://nycsurvivorresources.org.
