Please enter your email address here By John Haughey | The Center SquareFlorida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Wednesday authorized the deployment of 500 state National Guardsmen to Washington, D.C. Please enter your comment! DeSantis made the announcement during an Orlando news conference, indicating President Donald Trump requested the state’s guardsmen.“The federal government has helped Florida out in many different ways, including, obviously, before I was governor, so I felt it was important to step up and help out,” DeSantis said.DeSantis mobilized 700 Florida National Guardsmen on Sunday and Monday at the behest of local officials in Miami and Tampa after violence marred weekend protests. He did not indicate whether the 500 guardsmen, who will arrive in Washington on Wednesday afternoon, are those previously mobilized or additional call-ups.DeSantis addressed the nationwide demonstrations in the wake of George Floyd’s Memorial Day death while in Minneapolis police officer custody for the first time in remarks after previously issuing only a brief statement.“When I saw the video of the cop murdering George Floyd, I was absolutely appalled,” DeSantis said, noting he consulted with Florida law enforcement officials to confirm knee-on-neck restraint is cause for termination and prosecution by state and local agencies.“Everyone agrees that is totally intolerable what happened,” DeSantis said. “There was a breakdown in that police department. You have to look at swift accountability.”With a dozen municipalities under sustained curfews and protests continuing in many Florida cities throughout the week, the governor said “the gatherings” across the state have been mostly peaceful since the weekend.“There have been respectful gatherings with large crowds with isolated incidents, usually late at night,” he said.DeSantis said a man “trying to sell Molotov cocktails out of his car” was arrested in Tampa and another man was arrested with “mortars in his backpack” in Plant City in the past few days.About 2,000 demonstrators protested outside Orlando City Hall on Tuesday evening and then marched about a mile to Orlando Police Department headquarters, where, about an hour after the city’s 10 p.m. curfew went into effect, officers used tear gas and smoke when “a few remaining participants” threw rocks and bottles at them.DeSantis said there were 28 arrests in Orlando on Tuesday, including a man who “tried to stab” a police officer.The governor thanked the state’s law enforcement officers and local leaders.“I also want to thank the peaceful demonstrators, some of whom have helped to stymie attempts” to incite violence, DeSantis said.In Miami, about 400 people marched Tuesday afternoon from Overtown, a historically black neighborhood north of downtown, and sat on one knee and different locales as about 30 officers in body armor followed them. There was no violence.In St. Petersburg, a police officer suffered a minor injury when about 200 protesters descended on police headquarters around 11 p.m. Tuesday.Demonstrations also happened for the first time in Key West and Coral Springs on Tuesday.Sarasota Police has placed an officer on leave after video surfaced of a May 18 incident in which he put his knee on a handcuffed man’s neck for an extended period.Former Orlando Police Chief and U.S. Rep. Val Demings said the nation will not be free of racial violence until it addresses the “ghost in the room.”“We have got to acknowledge, sometimes painfully, that racism is still the ghost in the room,” Demings told Florida Politics.“This is not a black problem, although black people are at the fore of it. It’s about disparate treatment of African Americans in this country. But that is an American problem. And it’s going to take everybody to, number one, admit it, and, number two, to change it,” she said.

The design requested for this house, which is located in a gated community in the outskirts of Brasília, should be sober, without ostentation, and rather discreet.Save this picture!© Joana FrançaThe first two thirds of the site are occupied by a one-story building, destined to be the social and service areas. At the back, there is a two-story building with five bedrooms, areas for study, and a private living room. This building is strategically located perpendicularly to the one-story building.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe open space created by the combination of the two buildings circumscribes the leisure area, which is fully integrated with the social areas. The large glass panels in aluminum frames, which close the internal areas, ensure the desired fluidity of space. When the panels are open, the social area becomes a veranda, turning the living room, dining room, and kitchen into a so-called “gourmet space.”Save this picture!© Joana FrançaThe bedrooms, also facing the leisure area, are discreetly protected by moving panels of latticework, which, being individually moved, form different settings at the backgrounds of the building.On the opposite side, the wall, made of perforated metal sheet, suggests some interaction with the street, still keeping the dwellers’ privacy. On the upper floor, the garden-terrace, located over the one-story building, functions as the master suite’s balcony as well as the fifth façade, which can be seen from the other bedrooms and from the neighboring houses.Lastly, the usage of different textures, such as wood, pebbles, concrete, rust, and vegetation, offer the requested intimate atmosphere.

Image: Paul Medeiros Tagged with: HMRC Law / policy legacies The Government has offered charities a three-year transitional rate of Gift Aid worth around £300 million to alleviate the reduction in the value of Gift Aid on donations following the drop in income tax next month.The announcement was made by the Chancellor Alistair Darling MP earlier this afternoon in his Budget speech to the House of Commons. With effect from 6 April 2008, “charities will be able to claim Gift Aid at a transitional rate, consistent with a basic rate of income tax of 22 per cent, for three years”, according to the Budget document. This covers the tax years 2008-09, 2009-10, and 2010-11.Other changes related to Gift Aid include “a programme for bringing additional smaller charities into Gift Aid”, the redesign of HMRC’s ./guidance, and measures designed to increase the awareness of Gift Aid “including the launch of targeted marketing tools” to 5,000 new charities.The transitional rate was part of the Chancellor’s speech entitled ‘Modernising the tax system’.The package of measures followed HMRC’s consultation with the charity sector over Gift Aid, launched in June 2007, and how it could be made more effective. Over 500 views were submitted to the consultation.The Government today published its response to the Gift Aid consultation in which it detailed some of these changes. However, it did not propose making further changes to the system to make it easier for some donors to give, for example. HMRC argued in the document that “these are complex issues that require a better understanding of donor behaviour and a full assessment of the risks that could arise if alterations were to be made to a currently successful system”.It added that “the Government will continue to work with donors and charities to develop understanding of donor behaviour and use that to inform further thinking about Gift Aid”.The Budget also included a reference to payroll giving, namely that the Goverment would “continue to work with the sector on other ways to support charitable giving, including through payroll giving”.www.hm-treasury.gov.uk/budget/budget_08/bud_bud08_index.cfm Advertisement About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – May 17, 2017 SHARE Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articleEPA Launches WOTUS Review Webpage Hoosier Ag Today Ryan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for May 18, 2017 We will not rule out scattered rain showers today and tonight. However, yesterday should serve as a prime reading of how dry the atmosphere has become. Moisture tried to push into the state yesterday afternoon well in advance of the front but did not materialize in anything hitting the ground. Today we will see more clouds than the past few days and temps will try and pull back a bit, but moisture will be very, very limited in its coverage. We think most of the state will be dry. However, there is a slightly better chance of some action developing in the southern part of the state later today and tonight, and that scattered shower potential hangs around through tomorrow. All told, moisture potential over the next 36 to 48 hours is a few hundredths of an inch to a tenth or two, and coverage will be no better than 20-30% of the state.The weekend is wet. Rains develop late tomorrow night and then we see off and on rain chances through Saturday. The action intensifies overnight Saturday night and continues through Sunday. We will keep rain totals at .5”-1.5” over 90% of the state for the weekend. Some rains will linger into early Monday morning.Dry for the rest of Monday and Tuesday, but our next strong storm complex comes in for Tuesday overnight and all day Wednesday. This system looks big in coverage and intensity, with rain totals remaining at .5” to 1.5” and coverage at 90% of the state.Another storm complex moves in for late next Friday night into Saturday, bringing rain totals of .25”-1” to start the Memorial Day weekend. This has the potential to turn into a slow-moving upper-level low that plagues the region all the way through the holiday weekend with rain and clouds. However, rain totals after the initial arrival look to be fairly minor. IT is a pattern that would not facilitate much drying.The rest of the extended period looks active, with another low coming out of the plains into the eastern Corn Belt for late the 30th through the 1st. This system could have .25”-1.5” rain potential, depending on the track.Temps will pull back from the well above normal levels we have seen recently, looking more like normal temps through the weekend and next week. If a slow moving upper low does develop for Memorial Day weekend that would likely generate some cooler temps there toward the end of the 10 day period.

Julián Castro Kathleen Kraninger Mark Calabria Maxine Waters Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago It has been a busy week in Washington, D.C., with new appointments and nominations that could, directly and indirectly, impact the housing industry. We take a look at all the new people who are likely to impact housing regulation in 2019.A New Financial Services Committee HeadWhen the Democrats took the House in the midterm elections, Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) was pegged as a favorite to succeed the current House Financial Services Committee Chair Jeb Hensarling (R-Tex). The week began with the Representative from California earning the nomination to chair the committee from her fellow Democrats.According to the Washington Examiner, Waters, who has been a vocal critic of some of the administration’s current policies, said that she would “prioritize protecting consumers and investors from abusive financial practices,” while ensuring “strong safeguards” to prevent another financial crisis.The Examiner said that she also promised to bolster affordable housing opportunities while promoting diversity and inclusion in the financial services sector. Waters also plans to keep a close eye on the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (BCFP) that just got a new head last week. “Of particular importance is ensuring that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is not dismantled by Trump’s appointees. This critical agency must be allowed to resume its work of protecting consumers from unfair, deceptive or abusive practices without interference from the Trump Administration,” she said.The New BCFP DirectorKathleen Kraninger began her stint as the BCFP’s new Director this week after she was confirmed by the Senate to lead the agency for five years on December 6. At a press conference, Kraninger answered questions ranging from which policies laid down by the outgoing Acting Director, Mick Mulvaney would she change and not change, including changing the name from Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) to Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (BCFP).Kraninger said that she would take a fresh look at Mulvaney’s decision to change the name of the agency while acknowledging the internal BCFP report that the name change would cost the industry $300 million. Additionally, she said that she cared “more about what the agency does than what it is called.” Her regulatory priorities, she said, were reflected in the BCFP’s most recent semi-annual regulatory agenda.The FHFA NomOn Wednesday, the Trump administration announced the nomination of Dr. Mark Calabria, who is currently the Chief Economist to Vice President Mike Pence, to lead the Federal Housing Finance Agency for five years after the term of the current FHFA Director, Mel Watt expires in January.If confirmed, Calabria would have significant influence over the housing finance market at the FHFA. According to Bloomberg, Calabria had previously pushed for putting Fannie and Freddie into receivership. “Calabria, a former scholar at the libertarian Cato Institute, has also called for abolishing the mortgage-interest deduction, something millions of homeowners benefit from. In addition, he has supported getting rid of government subsidies for the 30-year fixed rate mortgage,” Bloomberg said. Read about what the industry and regulators had to say about the nomination here.Looking at 2020On Thursday, former Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Julián Castro, took a step towards throwing his hat in the ring for the 2020 Presidential elections by forming a presidential exploratory committee. However, the Democrat from Texas said that he would announce a decision on January 12, 2019. “I know where I’m leaning, for sure,” Castro told the Associated Press.An exploratory committee usually is a formality before a candidate launches a presidential campaign. It legally allows potential candidates to begin raising money. Sign up for DS News Daily Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago
Blood samples were collected from free-living incubating Diomedea albatross during single incubation shifts, both daily (wandering albatross D. exulans and every 2 days (grey-headed albatross D. chrysostoma and black-browed albatross D. melanophris), and the concentration of corticosterone was determined. Within 48 hr a significant increase in the corticosterone concentration was observed in each species. The magnitude of the increase was greater in the grey-headed and black-browed albatrosses than in the wandering albatross. Corticosterone concentrations rose steadily through the incubation shift in grey-headed and black-browed albatrosses, but fluctuated erratically in wandering albatrosses. All three species of albatross fast during incubation and the increase in adrenocortical activity is probably related to the voluntary deprivation of food and water.

Mayor Jay Gillian Dear Friends,Please take the time tonight before you go to bed to make sure your cars are in a safe place. The National Weather Service issued a Coastal Flood Watch in effect through Saturday morning. The tide is expected to peak before dawn at 5:37 a.m., and the forecast calls for moderate flooding, a level we have not yet seen this year. More information on this event is available at www.ocnj.us/oem.For the health and safety of all and in line with other closings, the Spring Block Party that had been scheduled for May 2 has been canceled. The event is always a highlight of the spring for residents, guests, vendors and merchants. I want to thank everybody for their understanding as we continue to suspend all social gathering in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19.Unrelated to the coronavirus pandemic, I was informed this week that the Army Corps of Engineers beach replenishment project for the north end of Ocean City will be delayed by about a month. Work will begin in June to rebuild beaches from Seaspray Road to 13th Street. About two blocks of beach at a time will be closed, and work is now expected to extend well into July.I understand that this will be an inconvenience to residents and guests, but Ocean City will always remain grateful to our partners at the Army Corps and state Department of Environmental Protection. These ongoing renourishment projects are vital in protecting property. More detail will be available as the work gets closer.I’d like to take a moment to pay tribute to Lou Davis, who became Ocean City’s first black firefighter in 1965. Lou passed away on March 23 at the age of 82. An Ocean City High School graduate and Army veteran, Lou served the Fire Department for 38 years before retiring as a captain in 2003. The department held a procession through town yesterday in his honor, but services will be postponed until social gathering restrictions are lifted.I also want to note the passing of two other members of our community: Sharon Miles and Priscilla Crawford. Michele and I would like to extend our deepest condolences to the Davis, Miles/Johnson, and Crawford/Rowell families. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.Warm regards,Mayor Jay A. Gillian
