Bolsonaro, Trump talk coronavirus help as Brazil cases rise sharply

first_imgTopics : He told reporters that Brazil was having difficulty importing urgent medical equipment because the United States sent 23 planes to China to be filled up, and Brazil’s share was slashed as a result.Mandetta said on Monday that 200 million personal protective equipment items would arrive from China this month.Meanwhile, Bolsonaro repeated his insistence that jobs and the economy cannot be forgotten in the coronavirus fight and warned that imports of food were already falling.Figures on Wednesday showed that Brazilian manufacturing activity in March shrank at its fastest rate in three years, while the real sank to a record low of 5.27 per dollar.The government pledged billions more to help the poor but was criticized for fraying ties with congress that could delay aid reaching those most in need.Economy Minister Paulo Guedes said the government will spend about 98 billion reais ($18 billion) to help 54 million informal workers affected by nationwide lockdowns, part of an overall 800 billion reais government aid package. Criticism has grown over Bolsonaro’s handling of the crisis. The right-wing populist has attacked state governors for lockdowns that are causing job losses, played down the threat of what he calls “a little flu” and contradicted his own health minister’s position on self-isolation and social distancing.Brazil’s Health Minister Luiz Henrique Mandetta said the latest coronavirus figures were very worrying and expressed concern about the lack of protective equipment, medical equipment and ventilators.The Health Ministry said on Wednesday that the number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Brazil rose by 1,119 to 6,836 and the death toll by 39 to 240.A 20-year-old indigenous woman in a village deep in the Amazon rainforest was the first case reported among Brazil’s more than 300 tribes. Mandetta said monitoring indigenous people is a challenge, and their lifestyle could facilitate the spread of the virus.center_img Presidents Donald Trump and Jair Bolsonaro on Wednesday discussed cooperation between the two countries in the fight against coronavirus, as Brazil’s health minister warned that infection rates and lack of medical supplies were a big concern.The two presidents discussed medical and logistical cooperation on a telephone call but steered clear of confinement and quarantine policies, according to Brazil’s Foreign Minister Ernesto Araujo. Both leaders have stirred controversy for their positions on the latter.The White House said they discussed the importance of working together through the Group of 20 nations, cooperating on vaccine development and restoring global economic growth.last_img read more

LARA issued cease and desist order to Rourke Builders over ‘communication breakdown’

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisOSCODA TOWNSHIP, Mich. — In this exclusive interview, a residential builder opens up about a cease and desist order he received from LARA, Michigan Licensing and Regulatory Affairs.It turns out, the owner of Randy Rourke Builders should have never received that order from the state. He says he has yet to receive an apology.“I build houses, mostly residential,” said Randy Rourke. He runs Rourke Builders. “I probably built 15 homes on this road, on Cedar Lake Road alone.”Randy has been constructing homes for the past 39 years throughout the Oscoda Township area. Randy had to cut his vacation in Florida short. An unexpected complaint, turned investigation, nearly cost him his business. News headlines made him return to Michigan.“I couldn’t believe it,” he said. “I couldn’t believe what I was hearing.”The Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs issued a cease and desist letter March 19 detailing that Randy Rourke was doing business without a proper state license. Randy said, “Rourke Builders wasn’t on my license. That’s what I was told.”LARA opened a case against Randy for violating the state’s occupational code. One — not possessing a license, and two — entering into an agreement with a customer offering services regulated by the occupational code. Randy said he did nothing wrong.We confirmed that Randy has been a licensed residential builder since 1994, the year he started his business in Oscoda.The owner added his business name Randy Rourke Builders to his license near the end of 2018 because he did not know that he was out of compliance until an investigator notified him. Prior to the update, Randy wrote contracts under the non–existent business name Rourke Builders, which originally landed him in violation. We contacted LARA for answers. They said the Bureau of Construction Codes had a “communication breakdown” with the Attorney General’s Office.Below is the exact  statement we received from LARA, after calling and emailing them multiple times to understand the situation.“On March 19, the Bureau of Construction Codes (BCC) issued a Cease & Desist Order against Rourke Builders for engaging in the practice of residential building by contracting to perform such services without a license.  A press release was issued on March 25 reporting this issue.  On March 27, it was brought to our attention that Rourke Builders was a DBA for Randy Rourke in which he was operating and that Randy Rourke was a licensed residential builder.  BCC looked into the matter further and discovered that Randy Rourke filed a request for a name update with BCC on December 13, 2018, to add Randy Rourke Builders as the DBA to the license for Randy Rourke. Unfortunately BCC did not provide the name update to Assistant Attorney General Bruce Johnson who worked on the complaint against Rourke Builders and drafted the Cease & Desist Order that was issued by BCC.  Upon learning of this filing, BCC worked with Bruce Johnson to draft a stipulation voiding the order.  On March 28, BCC and Rourke Builders entered into a Stipulation Declaring the March 19 Notice and Order to Cease & Desist as Null and Void.  On March 29, a press release was issued declaring the nullification.  BCC took immediate action to resolve the matter among the parties and will take action to remedy the communication breakdown with the Attorney General’s Office.”Randy Rourke will continue doing business as usual, but he wishes this experience never happened because “absolutely! I felt embarrassed” and hurt.The cease and desist against Randy Rourke is officially null and void as of March 28, 2019. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisContinue ReadingPrevious Meet the Boogie Woogie Kid at the Alpena LibraryNext Photo of the Day for Thursday, April 11last_img read more

Redknapp wants QPR to spend and says he’s running out of options

first_imgQPR boss Harry Redknapp has again suggested the club should do more in order to bring in further signings.Redknapp spoke of his frustration following last weekend’s draw at West Ham, arguing that Rangers needed to move quickly to complete transfer deals.And after failed attempts to land a number of high-profile players he has hinted that he is running out of options.“I’ve got the targets and if I can’t get any of them [soon] then I don’t know where I’d go now,” he said.“There’s people out there we can get, I think.

State of the Nation Address 2015: an overview

first_imgPresident Jacob Zuma will deliver his sixth State of the Nation Address during a joint sitting of Parliament in Cape Town this evening. More than just a speech, Sona sets the agenda for how the country will be governed over the year ahead, making commitments to the nation that Parliament is obliged to ensure the government keeps. The State of the Nation Address is one of the rare occasions where the three arms of state, the executive (government), the legislature (Parliament) and the judiciary (the courts) gather in one place. (Image: Department of Communications)• Infographic: The State of the Nation, in numbers• State of the Nation Address 2014 • Behind the scenes: State of the Nation Address 2014 • In pictures: State of the Nation Address 2014 • In pictures: State of the Nation Address, June 2014 What is the State of the Nation Address?The State of the Nation Address is a speech to the nation by the president of the Republic of South Africa as head of state. It is delivered at the annual opening of Parliament to a joint sitting of the National Assembly and the National Council of Provinces.In the State of the Nation Address, the president sets out the government’s key policy objectives and deliverables for the year ahead, setting out the basis for executive action during the calendar.Since the opening of the first democratic Parliament in 1994, the tone of the State of the Nation Address has been inclusive, joyful and informal. The opening of Parliament has become an opportunity to showcase the country’s cultural diversity and a chance for ordinary citizens, especially children, to become part of this nationally important day.It is one of the rare occasions where the three arms of state, the executive (government), the legislature (Parliament) and the judiciary (the courts) gather in one place.The executive is represented by the president, deputy president and ministers.The other spheres of government are represented by provincial premiers and local government officials.The judiciary is represented by the country’s chief justice and the judge presidents.The legislature is represented by the presiding officers and members of Parliament.Members of the public are also invited to attend the State of the Nation Address and take part in the occasion as the civilian guard.Why is the State of the Nation Address important?The address is the yearly occasion when the president sets out government’s key policy objectives and deliverables for the year ahead. It lays the foundation for executive action.In the address, the President highlights the achievements and problems of the past year and maps the year ahead and beyond.The State of the Nation Address also focuses on the government’s programme of action for the future.The address covers wide-ranging political, economic and social matters and considers the general state of South Africa.It explores South Africa’s domestic affairs as well as its continental and international relations.The State of the Nation Address is an important way for the government to account to Parliament and South African citizens for what has happened over the past year, and to inform and involve the public in the political agenda of the coming year.What is the link between the State of the Nation Address and the oversight function of Parliament?Oversight is a function granted to Parliament in terms of the Constitution – chapter 4, section 55 – to monitor and oversee government actions at national, provincial and local level.The State of the Nation Address is one of the benchmarks against which Parliament holds government accountable to the people for what it delivers on and how the allocated budget is spent.Since the President sets out the government’s programme of action for the coming year, the address provides Parliament with a yardstick against which to measure government’s performance.When performing its oversight function, Parliament focuses on how laws are implemented, how budgets have been applied, whether government departments are being effectively managed, and whether government has done what it said it would do.The State of the Nation Address and the BudgetThe State of the Nation Address precedes the Budget Speech of the minister of finance. The Budget is therefore in line with the priorities outlined in the president’s speech.Towards the end of February, the minister of finance introduces the Budget for the coming year.The budgets of government departments are allocated according to the priorities set out in the State of the Nation Address.The Budget is a significant tool of oversight, holding the government accountable for how public funds are spent.Fast factsThe 2015 State of the Nation Address will begin at 19h00 on Thursday 12 February 2015. It will be broadcast live on national television and radio. A live stream via YouTube will also be available.The State of the Nation Address is broken down into three parts. The first is public participation when the civilian guard of honour welcomes the president and his guests as they walk along the red carpet. This is followed by a state ceremony which includes a 21-gun salute and Air Force flypast. Finally, the president delivers his address to Parliament.Members of the South African National Defence Force line the route that the President takes to Parliament.The military guard of honour also participates in the ceremony and the military band plays South Africa’s national anthem.last_img read more

Intel Helps Joyent Become the First Cloud Computing Service to Launch in China

first_imgRelated Posts Tags:#cloud Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… With some help from Intel, Joyent is announcing it is the first cloud computing service to launch in mainland China.Joyent is working with Intel and the Qinhuangdao Economic and Technology Development Zone (QETDZ) to bring its infrastructure cloud computing service to the Chinese market. The Joyent service is already being promoted with a localized version of its web site.Joyent is a San Francisco based cloud computing service that launched in 2004. They are one of the pioneers of the cloud computing world. They were one of the first to offer Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offerings. They now offer all three layers of the Cloud Stack – IaaS, Platform as a Service (PAAS) and Software as a Service (SaaS).The China deal is a major coup for Joyent, which competes with giants like Amazon Web Services. Joyent prides itself on being a self-funded company.It is interesting that QETDZ officials decided to embrace a cloud computing service. We are seeing a whole new level of innovation in application development that stems from the availability of cloud computing services. Companies are embracing cloud computing services in North America and elsewhere for its simplicity, scaling and elasticity. With a cloud computing infrastructure, China will be well-positioned to experience significant innovation in its technology developmentIn today’s announcement, Intel cited Joyent’s infrastructure as a measure for its support. Joyent’s infrastructure is based on the Intel Xeon processor. The QETDZ is one of China’s first state-level economic and technological development zones. It is heavily focused on technology development. They have coined the name of the region as “Data Valley.”Joyent is immediately launching its base public cloud product.

A New Era For Corporate Culture: iPhone Use Doubles in the Enterprise

first_imgMassive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… iPhone use has doubled in the enterprise since last summer when Apple released the 3GS. The big bump in sales helped Apple post $3.38 billion in profits this past quarter. More than 70% of Fortune 100 companies are now testing the iPhone as their smartphone of choice. A big driver is iPhone’s support for Microsoft Exchange.The news highlights why Google is planning to launch its next Nexus One as an enterprise device: The corporate market has smartphone fever.The news also points to the inherent weakness of the RIM Blackberry in comparison to the iPhone and the Nexus One. Touch devices such as the iPhone and the Nexus One are designed for applications and accessing the Web. The Blackberry is designed as a messaging device.But the enterprise is going through a shift that affects not just what device is used but how the overall organization functions. That shift is embodied in the deeper commitment to collaboration technologies in the enterprise. As mobile technologies become more robust, the affects across the organization will be seen in a number of ways.Operations and other non-customer facing tasks will be done more often outside the walls of the corporate office. People will increasingly work at home. Mobile devices will be pretty much required by knowledge workers.Telepresence will become more predominant. Corporations are investing in unified communications technologies to allow for better video conferencing over any type of device, including smartphones.Technology providers will need technologies to work across any device. You see this trend beginning to evolve. RIM and IBM announced an integration at Lotusphere last week. Lotus Quickr and Lotus Connections will be loaded onto Blackberry devices. Big Blue is also developing applications for the Android OS to allow for encrypted email, using Lotus NotesTraveler, the IBM technology. Traveler is now available on the iPhone as well.The Blackberry still has a significant lead over the iPhone, and the Nexus One is but a baby. But Apple and Google’s intentions are pretty clear, and RIM is not blind to the shift, as exemplified with its IBM partnership.
