He held the ball up and ran the channel. It was a fantastic pass for Alexis’ goal. It was a great finish.”

As many as 214 people a night stayed in 136 standard tents, Herrera said.He said the city is now making the transition to what officials call “bridge shelters,” large tents where the homeless will be housed, provided with supportive services and ultimately moved on to more permanent solutions.”Counselors, case managers and housing navigators will be on site to work with each client from day one to develop a person-centric strategy to getting them housed, as well as to make connections with the resources they need to address any underlying issues that may contribute to their homelessness,” Herrera said.Two other large tent shelters are scheduled to open in the next few weeks, one in the East Village and the other in the Midway District.”In total, these three bridge shelters will provide a new beginning and a fresh start for more than 700 homeless San Diegans at any given time,” Herrera said.He said the goal will be to move them into more permanent housing within 120 days.Herrera added that roughly 280 people are being served at a couple of “safe parking” sites, where people living in their vehicles can stop overnight in a secure area. Many of those are families, as well, he said. December 11, 2017

The American Soybean Association (ASA) welcomes news this week of the European Parliament’s overwhelming rejection of a proposal that would allow individual European Union (EU) member states to opt-out of importing and using foods containing biotechnology for non-scientific reasons. The body voted 619-58 to approve a committee report recommending opposition to the controversial “opt-out” proposal. ASA President and Texas farmer Wade Cowan issued the following statement on today’s vote:“This is a much-needed action today by the European Parliament. ASA has repeatedly called on the EU to make science-based decisions on the issue of biotechnology, and we are very happy to see the Europeans do so this morning. One of the unifying principles of the EU is to provide a single market, both within Europe and as a partner in in global commerce. Enabling each of its 28 member states to go rogue on GMO acceptance, based on societal or political concerns, is hardly a unifying strategy for success.“Soybean farmers welcome today’s news as we look to expand our European markets for animal feed, edible oils, biodiesel and biobased products. Europe is a top-five market for American soybeans, and we looking forward to further expanding our trade relationship.Moving forward, the Commission has been directed by the EU Parliament to come up with a new proposal. However, in our view, it would be more appropriate for the EU to use its own existing procedures to approve new biotech products rather than trying to come up with another approach. The Commission just needs to do its job by following its own regulations and procedures.”
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has sent its 2017 Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) Required Volume Obligation (RVO) proposal to the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review.The rule covers overall RFS and total Advanced Biofuels requirements for 2017, as well as the 2018 volume requirement for biomass-based diesel. OMB is allowed up to a 90-day review period, which would mean the Proposed Rule would be published by mid-July. By law, EPA is supposed to finalize the overall RFS 2017 levels and the 2018 biomass-based diesel by Nov. 30 of this year.Last fall, EPA issued a Final Rule for 2014-16 (and 2017 for biomass-based diesel) that invoked waiver authority to reduce the amount of corn ethanol refiners must blend into the nation’s fuel supply. Ethanol, biodiesel and oil interests have all filed suit in federal court over various aspects of the RVO’s, but those cases aren’t expected to be resolved until late this year or possibly into next year, adding a layer of uncertainty to the existing and upcoming 2017-18 rule.

For much of her young life, Karen Pohl was there when people needed help.That didn’t end when the 2008 graduate of Ridgefield High School died Saturday in a Spokane hospital. Pohl was an organ donor.Pohl, 22, suffered a stroke April 9 at the University of Idaho in Moscow, where she was a senior majoring in biology.Pohl also was a multi-tasking volunteer, whose community service included Moscow ambulance runs as well as Christmas-break missions to Central America.“Joining the ambulance company in order to become an EMT showed that she cared about people,” said Dan Carscallen, who is in charge of Moscow’s volunteer ambulance service.“The fact that she had the foresight to become an organ donor just proves it further,” Carscallen said.Pohl had recently undertaken two other volunteer roles, and she brought along plenty of help. Pohl was a student coordinator at the Associated Students volunteer center. Meladi Mottern, an administrative assistant in the associated students office, said Pohl organized service trips during school breaks.“During the Christmas break, we send groups of 12 to 15 students to international places for a 3 weeks,” Mottern said. The assignments can include construction projects and working at schools.“This year, she went to Costa Rica,” Mottern said.During spring break, they head for sites around the U.S.; Pohl organized a trip this year to the Gulf Coast, where the Idaho volunteers are still involved in hurricane relief.Friends said that Pohl was planning to become a doctor.The Pullman-Moscow Daily News reported that Pohl was swimming in the UI pool when she lost focus and started feeling ill. Pohl was taken to the Moscow hospital in an ambulance staffed by fellow volunteers.

Briggs was touting his experience in the wood products industry, suggesting it’s time voters consider a candidate who isn’t just “doing his best, plugging along, learning as he goes.”Briggs compared his experience favorably with Vick’s occupation as the marketing manager for his family’s landscaping business.“Now, albeit landscaping is important, and I love it,” Briggs said, “it’s not as big as the forest products industry and I got a lot of experience there as a lumber trader and working with the rail.”
Defined benefit (DB) pension schemes within the UK’s private sector had an estimated £40 billion total deficit by 31 August 2018, according to research by JLT Employee Benefits.JLT’s monthly index shows the funding position of UK private sector DB pension schemes, based on the standard accounting measure used in organisation reports and accounts. It found that August 2018’s deficit across the private sector in the UK was a decrease of £101 billion since 31 August 2017, when there was a recorded deficit of £141 billion.Charles Cowling (pictured), chief actuary at JLT Employee Benefits, said: “Many pension scheme trustees are currently looking at their triennial valuation results and reviewing funding and investment strategies. Trustees do tend to be more cautious when looking at their pension scheme valuations. However, many pension schemes are seeing valuation results which are an improvement on their funding position at the last valuation three years ago. There is the possibility that 2018 may see a welcome and much reduced demand for additional pension funding on employers.“It should therefore be an ideal opportunity for pension schemes to lock in their position and switch out of risky assets into investments which more closely match their liabilities. Having spent 10 years clawing their way back into surplus, it would be a sad day for pension schemes if all that progress was lost in another crisis of confidence in markets.”Asset values across all UK private sector DB pension schemes were estimated at £1,579 billion as of 31 August 2018, compared to £1,568 billion a year earlier. Liabilities were recorded at £1,619 billion for all UK private sector DB pension schemes, which is a decrease from £1,709 billion in August 2017.For the UK’s top 350 organisations, the funding position of DB pension schemes featured a £7 billion deficit, £764 billion in assets and £771 billion in liabilities, by 31 August 2018. This is a notable decrease since August 2017, when the FTSE 350 had a reported deficit for its DB pension schemes of £49 billion, asset values of £775 billion and liabilities of £824 billion.Within the FTSE 100, on 31 August 2018, the total DB pension scheme funding position included a £3 billion deficit, £675 billion in assets and £678 billion in liabilities. This compares to a £39 billion pension deficit in August 2017, with asset values of £687 billion and liabilities of £726 billion.Cowling added: “Finance directors and trustees alike should be actively assessing the many favourable opportunities now available to lock in their liabilities, possibly through the purchase of matching cash-flow driven investments (CDI), of which there are a growing number of options now available.“Another way for many pension schemes to lock in their finances and reduce risk is through the payment of individual transfer values to members. For some pension scheme members, such transfers can be attractive given the introduction of pension freedoms over the last few years. At the same time, they can be very beneficial to employers and trustees alike, looking to shrink their pension liabilities and reduce their reliance on the employer’s balance sheet to protect members’ benefits.”

(WSVN) – South Florida-born rapper Kodak Black was arrested right before he was set to perform Rolling Loud hip-hop festival on state and federal firearms charges, authorities said.According the the U.S. Marshals Service, Black was taken into custody as he arrived at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens to perform at the three-day event, Saturday night.In a statement released Sunday, Rolling Loud organizers said the performer “was arrested on his way to the festival and we have no knowledge of what led to the arrest since he was not on festival property.”Officials said Black’s arrest comes after an extensive investigation conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Miami-Dade Police Northside Gang Unit and the U.S. Marshals. The arrest comes less than a month after Black, whose legal name is Bill Kapri, was taken into custody on drug and weapons charges as he tried to cross from Canada into the United States near Niagara Falls in upstate New York.Black, who is originally from Pompano Beach, was arrested on charges of second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and unlawful possession of marijuana.
