Fox News hires Larry Kudlow; McEnany may be next

first_imgNEW YORK (AP) — Less than a week after the Trump administration ended, one of its alumni has joined Fox News. The company announced that Larry Kudlow, a former CNBC journalist who was former President Donald Trump’s national economic council director, will host a weekday show on Fox Business Network and be an analyst across other Fox News Media properties. Former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said in government disclosure document that she would be working at Fox. The network says there has been no job agreement with McEnany. One of her predecessors, Sarah Sanders, just left Fox to run for governor of Arkansas.last_img

COVID-19 increases incoming mail at ND, demanding flexibility in mail distribution

first_imgInside Notre Dame’s Mail Distribution Center, sorting shelves are carefully labeled and coded with blue, pink, orange and green Post-it Notes. A four-minute walk away, two Amazon packages sit forlornly by the elevator on the first floor of Farley Hall. The next day, a few more appear on the floor by the mailroom.The Mail Distribution Center’s staff has been using the colorful Post-it Notes to keep track of special requests from different academic departments regarding mail distribution. Due to the public health exigencies of the coronavirus pandemic, some offices have made the decision to operate online only or in a hybrid manner. This requires that the center have more flexibility in its delivery schedule.Normally, the center distributes mail sorted by Notre Dame’s U.S. Postal Service Office (NDPO) to over 200 academic departments and over 30 residence halls, according to Patti Sikorski, manager of the Mail Distribution Center. They do not distribute any Amazon, United Parcel Service (UPS), FedEx, DHL or third-party parcels, which are delivered directly to dorms and departments.The center was operating at 90% of their usual capacity, since some departments working online prefer to pick up their own mail from the center or have it delivered once a week. Since Tuesday’s announcement  that University classes will move online for the next two weeks, a few academic departments have decided to pick up their mail directly. Sikorski said she expects more to make that switch; however, the Mail Distribution Center will continue delivering to departments who prefer it that way, as well as to residence halls.Adjusting to specific requests is only one of the ways in which the pandemic has affected normal operations for the center, and even outside delivery companies, a significant number of packages and mail have been flowing into residence halls since before the first week of classes.“It seems like it,” Sikorski said when The Observer asked whether students had been receiving more mail lately. “We have seen an increase, which has been nice. [It] keeps you busy, and then you go home. We’re happy to see the kids back, though. … Since March, it’s been kind of quiet.”Sikorski believes that, since students had short 90-minute slots for move-in, they had to have many things shipped to their rooms. Student move-in was staggered as to permit physical distancing and to allow for sanitization of common areas, according to Residential Life.The parcels are not only numerous but bigger than usual, too. Students seem to be ordering things such as refrigerators, Sikorski said, resulting in her staff taking multiple trips to residence halls.Some college students and their families have been relying on online shopping for essentials and supplies as school starts again. Reports from Deloitte found that “the coronavirus pandemic has had an impact on back-to-school and back-to-college shopping, sparking a spike in safety concerns and bolstering a growing preference for online-only and e-commerce options,” according to Business Insider.“Oh my god, there were so many [packages] this week, last week and the week before,” said Tiffany Milligan, who alongside her colleague Cody Cox delivers for Amazon on campus. “We’ve actually been having to double up because today we had 10 routes and only eight people.”Cox confirmed this, saying the number of packages surpasses the number of drivers.Cox and Milligan also offered an answer for students who might be missing Amazon orders that have been marked as delivered. Milligan said there is a backlog of packages that are still being distributed.“[With] everybody coming back, it was all backed up. So now we’re pushing everything out that we had to hold on [to],” she said. “It’s been a lot. Hopefully soon it’ll slow down.”Some of the measures Milligan and Cox have been following to ensure public health and safety include wiping the delivery vans down every day and using sanitizer every time they enter a residence hall.The Mail Distribution Center is also cleaning several times a day, wiping equipment, wearing gloves and doing health checks at home and upon arriving on campus, in order to follow health recommendations.The center normally has student helpers, Sikorski said; however, they have decided to operate without these workers for the first few weeks, at least until they are able to gauge how the virus is affecting the student body. The center is currently operating with only seven staff members.The staff still relies on many student workers to deliver mail within dorms: mail clerks in many residence halls continue sorting and delivering mail, and have also had to adapt to a large influx of packages.Kayla Joseph-Ollivierre, a junior and Farley Hall’s mail clerk, said students are stocking up on necessities they would normally buy at Target or Walmart.Many students are receiving care packages from home, Joseph-Ollivierre said. Her own mother recently mailed her a box of snacks, Lysol wipes and other supplies, she added.“Things have been backed up, so I get twice as many packages as usual,” she said regarding the United States Postal Service.Joseph-Ollivierre has been trying to balance the demands of being a mail clerk in these unprecedented times with her life on campus. To adapt, she is considering doing room deliveries once a week and holding mail hours twice a week.In Walsh Hall, the mail distribution system is working differently. The dorm’s mail clerks, junior Ella Crowley and sophomore Rebecca Ruiz said they have been holding daily mail hours to distribute packages.This is Crowley’s second year as one of Walsh’s mail clerks. She recalls a similar heavy influx of incoming mail at the beginning of classes in the fall of 2019, such as textbooks and mail from parents.“I don’t know, it’s been a year, so it’s hard to tell if this high volume is from the year just starting or COVID or both,” Crowley said.Crowley and Ruiz are able to maintain safety protocols, as they wear masks and regulate the number of residents allowed in the mailroom at a time.The Walsh mail clerks have also noted some peculiarities regarding Amazon deliveries.“I’ve seen a lot of [Amazon] Prime packages sitting in the hallways; so, there are a lot more packages than we’re sorting through,” Ruiz said.They offered another possible answer for any lost Amazon packages: in Walsh, as in Farley, some parcels from the e-commerce company have not been delivered to people’s doors.“Last year we never, ever had to sort Amazon packages,” Crowley said. “They would always just go to people’s rooms. But lately, there have been some that they just deliver to the mailroom.”Meanwhile, junior Tyler Krasny, Knott Hall’s two-time mail clerk, offered a different picture than the one painted by Sikorski and the other mail clerks — he does not think the number of packages he has had to deliver is particularly high right now.“I just had my first shift a few days ago, and I’d say the package volume wasn’t really any higher than normal,” Krasny said.Looking ahead to the general election on November, Sikorski expects to see many ballots come in for students who are voting absentee.“Actually, when it gets closer to that time, we check the boxes more often,” she said. “I know the post office does too.”In the spring semester, the Mail Distribution Center made sure to forward election mail, tax returns and any important mail to students’ homes and quarantine locations.“When everybody left, those were some of the top priority that we turned around and readdressed home,” Sikorski said.Tags: absentee ballot, amazon, deliveries, mail clerk, mail distribution center, mail-in voting, U.S. Postal Service, USPSlast_img read more

‘Long-Lingering Problem’ in Coal Industry’s Collapse

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享From TheWeek.com:“We’re witnessing something that we rarely see in America: the sudden and sharp collapse of a functioning industry,” said Daniel Gross at Slate. Overall, the value of the companies in the Dow Jones U.S. Coal Index has plummeted 93 percent over the past five years. Natural gas now accounts for 31 percent of electricity produced in the U.S., up from 21 percent in 2007. The shift is being accelerated by regulations that discourage companies from building new coal-fired plants. Many states now “dictate that a certain amount of power come from renewable sources,” and “virtually every utility in the U.S.” has contingency plans for stricter emissions standards that could come down the road. The playbook is almost always the same: “Burn a lot less coal.”Peabody’s failure actually shows the limits of clean coal technology, said Richard Martin at Technology Review. The coal industry has invested billions in clean coal R&D worldwide, with little to show for it. Carbon capture still adds 30 to 40 percent to the cost of generating coal power, “a nonstarter if it’s to be competitive with inexpensive natural gas.” Coal’s “dirty legacy” will outlive the industry itself, said Tom Sanzillo and David Schlissel at The New York Times. Abandoned mines “create long-lingering problems including polluted drinking water.” By law, coal companies are required to clean up after mining, but with bankruptcies mounting, hundreds of millions of dollars in reclamation guarantees are now “in limbo.” Big Coal’s demise means taxpayers will be stuck with cleanup bills for years to come.The swift demise of Big Coal ‘Long-Lingering Problem’ in Coal Industry’s Collapselast_img read more

Disappearance and Death of Louisiana Teen Raises Questions About Police Response

first_imgWithin hours of being notified that Quawan might be in their jurisdiction, Iberia Parish sheriff’s deputies discovered the body of a teenage boy around 6 p.m. in a muddy field near Loreauville, a small rural community not far from the Irvins’ home, after they pinged Quawan’s cellphone, Mr. Hall said. “It appears that something hateful happened to Bobby,” Ron Hall, a lawyer for the family, said in an interview, using Quawan’s nickname. “Whether this was an intentional act or grossly negligent indifference for human life, it’s still horrible.”On Oct. 30, Quawan’s mother had planned to pick him up from his father’s home for a haircut at 3 p.m., but he didn’t answer his phone, according to Mr. Hall. When he hadn’t responded by 7 p.m., his parents began to worry. His father forced down his locked bedroom door, realized he was missing and called the Baldwin Police Department, Mr. Hall said. Quawan Charles in a photo provided by his family.Credit…via Associated Press – Advertisement – Mr. Arceneaux said the failure of the police to immediately look for Quawan at the football game or to issue an Amber Alert was indicative of a larger issue.“Regardless of whether this was racially motivated or not, regardless of what the situation surrounding his death may be, the fact that the police departments didn’t act the way they would’ve acted if Quawan was a 15-year-old white girl named Katie, that’s the problem,” Mr. Arceneaux said.The American Civil Liberties Union has backed the call for an independent and transparent investigation, according to a statement from Alanah Odoms Hebert, executive director of the A.C.L.U. of Louisiana.“The disrespect and lack of transparency demonstrated by local officials in response to Bobby’s tragic and suspicious death is unacceptable,” Ms. Odoms Hebert said in a statement. “We join the family in demanding a full and transparent investigation into the circumstances surrounding Bobby’s death.”Quawan’s family has organized demonstrations outside the Baldwin Police Department and the Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Office to call for justice and answers. They feel that if action had been taken sooner, Quawan could be alive today, Mr. Hall said.“He’s still a kid,” he said. “If there’s a 1 percent chance at preventing what happened to Bobby — whatever that was — if you put full resources into finding this kid, then you take that chance.” After they located the body, the Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Office opened a homicide investigation that included interviewing those who were believed to have been with Quawan before his disappearance and searching their home, the office said in a statement on Saturday. A spokeswoman declined to answer whether that included Ms. Irvin and her son.“We interviewed these same individuals and are currently tracking their whereabouts,” the statement said. Video evidence recorded near the area where his body was found indicates that Quawan was alone for some time before and after he was seen on the recording, according to the statement.A preliminary autopsy report released by the Iberia Parish coroner on Friday said the cause of Quawan’s death was drowning, citing muddy water found in his airways and hyperinflated lungs. In the report, the coroner attributed the scratches and wounds on Quawan’s face to “aquatic animal activity” and said that the boy had not sustained the injuries before his death.A toxicology report has not yet been released.There are several bodies of water near the sugar cane field where Quawan was found, Mr. Hall said, but none deeper than two feet.“If in fact he did die of drowning — and we’re saying that as an if — we’re calling into question how exactly that would have happened,” Mr. Hall said. “Can somebody who’s 5-foot-6 typically drown in two feet of water? No, not unless there’s another cause associated with that.” The Baldwin Police Department, which also did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Saturday, said in a statement on Tuesday that it would handle the investigation into his disappearance. Quawan’s death would be investigated — as a homicide — by the Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Office. The Police Department added that “proper protocol was used to report the juvenile as missing.” The family has commissioned an independent autopsy and has sent an investigator to capture drone footage of the fields where Quawan was found, Mr. Hall said.Quawan was a quiet teenager who had seven siblings, according to Mr. Hall. He had an understated sense of humor that would come out as he got to know a person and had recently adopted a dog he named My Baby, according to The Washington Post.“Like a lot of teenagers, he was just at that age where you’re trying to figure out your place in this world,” said Andre Arceneaux, a local activist who founded Stand Black, an advocacy group. “He was just a good kid and something happened to him that we don’t know the ins and outs of yet.”When his family saw photos of Quawan taken at the coroner’s office the night he was found — a quarter of his mangled face gone, revealing half his teeth in a gruesome, forced grin — they likened his appearance to that of Emmett Till, a 14-year-old Black youth who was killed in 1955, recalled Mr. Arceneaux, who was with them at the time.Quawan’s mother decided to release one of the photos, Mr. Arceneaux said.“She somehow had the bravery to say, ‘The world needs to see my child; the world needs to see what he looks like,’” Mr. Arceneaux said. “Sometimes it takes something like that for people to see the severity of what happened.”On a GoFundMe page for Quawan’s family, Mr. Till and Mr. Charles are displayed side by side, their faces captioned “1955” and “2020.” By Saturday afternoon, more than $235,000 had been raised for autopsy and funeral costs.Quawan’s death has not been deemed racially motivated by the authorities or his family, Mr. Hall said. The police assured Quawan’s parents that he was probably at a football game or with friends, Mr. Hall said. No Amber Alert was issued.- Advertisement – Days after his family had reported him missing, 15-year-old Quawan Charles was found dead in a sugar cane field, more than 20 miles from his home in Baldwin, La., his face badly disfigured.A preliminary autopsy found that his death had most likely been caused by drowning. But the circumstances surrounding his disappearance, and the local police’s slowness to take action, have prompted the boy’s family to commission an independent autopsy and question whether his death could have been prevented.- Advertisement – Frustrated, the family took matters into their own hands and learned that Quawan had been picked up by Janet Irvin and her son, without his parents’ permission, Mr. Hall said. He was taken to their home in the neighboring Iberia Parish, he said.It is unclear when, why or how Quawan left the Irvin home, Mr. Hall said. Ms. Irvin did not respond to requests for comment on Saturday, and the Baldwin Police Department, which is investigating Quawan’s disappearance, did not respond to questions.Quawan’s parents contacted the authorities in neighboring Iberia Parish on Nov. 3 to involve them in the search.- Advertisement –last_img read more

Glaxo H5N1 vaccine may work against multiple strains

first_imgEditor’s note: This story was revised Mar 7 to clarify information about global influenza vaccine production capacity.March 6, 2007 (CIDRAP News) – The British pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) unveiled new findings yesterday suggesting that its inactivated H5N1 influenza vaccine may protect humans from more than one strain of the virus, which may build a stronger case for prepandemic vaccination and spur more countries to consider stockpiling.Researchers from GSK detailed recent findings from two studies at a symposium in Hong Kong, the company said in a press release yesterday. In July 2006, the company had reported that its vaccine triggered a good immune response in humans at a much lower dose than other H5N1 vaccines under development.GSK’s vaccine, based on an H5N1 virus collected in Vietnam in 2004, contains a proprietary adjuvant (an immune-stimulating chemical). Adjuvants enable vaccine makers to produce more doses from a limited supply of antigen.Though the GSK vaccine is made with older egg-based production methods, which are slower and more laborious than newer cell-culture or DNA technology, the dose-sparing effect of the adjuvant is crucial. The current world population is more than 6 billion, but the World Health Organization (WHO) has estimated the maximum global production capacity for seasonal flu vaccines at only about 350 million doses.In November, the WHO cautioned governments against spockpiling prepandemic vaccines, because many fundamental questions about H5N1 vaccines remained, such as whether vaccines would work against more than one strain of the virus.However, vaccines that are effective against more than one strain could strengthen the case for building prepandemic vaccine stockpiles. David Stout, president of GSK Pharmaceuticals, commented in the press release, “We believe this vaccine will provide governments with a new option to help protect their populations against the threat of a future human influenza pandemic.”Study resultsThe first study GSK presented at the Hong Kong meeting involved 400 adults and found that very low levels of GSK’s inactivated, adjuvanted H5N1 vaccine (two 3.8-microgram [mcg] doses administered 21 days apart) elicited strong cross-reactive immunity against an Indonesian strain of the virus. The response was 25 times greater than that observed in a control group that received a nonadjuvanted version of the vaccine, GSK said in its press release. Immunity was assessed by measuring the level of neutralizing antibodies.”This means that proactive administration of our prepandemic vaccine before or just after the start of a pandemic could help to substantially slow down the spread of the disease,” said Jean Stephenne, president of GSK Biologicals.For comparison, an H5N1 vaccine made by Sanofi Pasteur that was recently recommended for approval by a US Food and Drug Administration panel required two 90-mcg doses to yield an immune response in less than half of patients tested.In the second study, researchers immunized ferrets with the GSK vaccine and then infected them with an Indonesian strain of H5N1 virus. Only 1 of the 23 infected animals died, which translates to a 96% protection rate, GSK reported.Findings difficult to evaluateGregory Poland, MD, a vaccine expert at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., told CIDRAP News that it’s hard to evaluate GSK’s findings, because the company has not yet published any clinical trials in peer-reviewed medical journals. “It’s certainly exciting news, but it needs to be confirmed,” he said. Researchers are eager to learn more about the adjuvant that GSK used, particularly its safety profile and reactivity.The report of a robust immune response with a low dose of vaccine is promising, and in a prepandemic setting, a two-dose course isn’t likely to be problematic, said Poland, who is a professor of medicine in infectious diseases at the Mayo College of Medicine and directs the Mayo Vaccine Research Group and Program in Translational Immunovirology. “It’s tempting to go overboard, and I’m excited, but cautiously so,” he added.Besides positioning its vaccine as a prepandemic measure for national stockpiles, GSK would also like to market the vaccine someday to medical clinics and individuals, according to a Canadian Press story published yesterday.In November 2006, the US Department of Health and Human Services awarded GSK a $40 million contract for a supply of its H5N1 antigen in bulk form, and in January it granted the company $63.3 million to develop antigen-sparing H5N1 influenza vaccines.See also:Jul 2006 CIDRAP News article “Glaxo says its H5N1 vaccine works at low dose”last_img read more

Sumatran birds closer to extinction due to habitat loss, hunting

first_imgDozens of bird species endemic to Sumatra Island are closer to extinction because of habitat loss from land use change as well as illegal hunting.According to bird conservation NGO Burung Indonesia, 42 bird species have been listed as endangered on the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) red list. Meanwhile, nine species are listed as critically endangered.“Most of the species in the critically endangered category are losing their habitat [and are] illegally hunted,” Burung Indonesia spokesman Achmad Ridha Junaid said on Tuesday. For example, cucak rawa (straw-headed bulbuls) were often hunted to be sold as pets, despite their limited number remaining in the wild, Achmad went on to say. The IUCN red list in August 2018 estimated the number of cucak rawa in the wild at 600 to 1,700.Some experts believe the species is extinct by now.Similarly, the rangkong gading (helmeted hornbill) is often hunted for its bright red and yellow solid casque. The species has been included in the critically endangered category.Read also: Man nabbed in Riau for allegedly slaughtering, cooking hornbill Achmad said the rangkong gading had been considered vulnerable until 2015, but its status had been increased to critically endangered ever since, because of rampant hunting.“Such a case, in which a bird species jumps by two [categories on the endangered species] lists in a very short time is very rare,” he said. “It is regrettable that we have little to no information on the exact helmeted hornbill population in Sumatra, as that would require a large-scale field study.”Changes in forest cover across Sumatra have contributed to the vulnerability of these bird species. According to environmental group Warsi Indonesian Conservation Community (KKI Warsi), the total forest cover on the island was around 11 million hectares in 2015 – down vastly from 20 million ha in 1990.“Meanwhile, the areas of plantations as well as industrial forest have increased by 141 and 381 percent, respectively,” KKI Warsi director Rudi Syaf said.He added that Sumatra was predicted to lose another 9 million ha of forest cover within 25 years if no action was taken to preserve the forest.

Jiwasraya defendant Benny Tjokrosaputro named money laundering suspect

first_imgThe National Police have named Benny Tjokrosaputro, the president director of publicly listed property firm PT Hanson International, a prime suspect in a money laundering case involving a shell bank.Brig. Gen. Helmy Santika, who helms the financial crimes unit of the National Police’s Criminal Investigation Department (Bareskrim), accused Benny of having collected illicit funds through his position at the company.“[Benny] is the main perpetrator who collected illegal funds through the legal body PT Hanson International and the cooperative Hanson Mitra Mandiri,” Helmy said on Monday as quoted by kompas.com. However, he said the police needed to question Benny further. The businessman is on trial for his alleged involvement in a widely publicized graft case involving state insurer PT Asuransi Jiwasraya.“Benny’s detainment will need to wait until after the examination at the [Jakarta] Corruption Court,” Helmy added.Benny was among the suspects named by the Attorney General’s Office (AGO) in the high-profile Jiwasraya graft case earlier this year.Indonesian Anti-Corruption Community (MAKI) coordinator Boyamin Saiman previously reported Hanson International to Bareskrim, alleging that the company had committed a financial crime.Boyamin claimed the company had collected public funds in violation of the country’s Banking Law.“The Banking Law stipulates that [individuals] carrying out banking practices, such as accepting investments, savings or deposits, without authorization may face up to 10 years [in prison],” Boyamin said.He added that Hanson International had allegedly collected Rp 2.4 trillion (US$ 162.1 million) since 2016 to purchase land in Lebak regency, Banten and Bogor regency, West Java.
