first_imgHurricane Iota, the 30th named storm, 13th hurricane and 6th major hurricane of 2020, made landfall in Nicaragua just 10 miles south of where Hurricane Eta struck two weeks earlier.Iota was more powerful than Eta, carried more rain and did more damage, especially to the Indigenous communities in Honduras and Guatemala, peoples whom the pandemic has already devastated.In certain areas, the water left from Eta had not completely drained.shelter in HondurasIn northern Honduras, Iota flooded most of San Pedro Sula’s 800,000 people. About 100,000 people there are piled up in shelters, unable to take any precautions against COVID-19. They have an urgent need to obtain food and water. Some of them have not been home for two weeks and must dread what they will find when they return to their homes.The  Red Cross estimates that these two back-to-back November hurricanes affected about 4.2 million people in Honduras, Nicaragua and Guatemala.Effects of global warmingIt is not currently possible to scientifically tie an individual hurricane to the overall process of climate change. Long before “climate change” was a topic of discussion, in November of 1932, the horribly destructive Hurricane Cuba, a category 5 storm, made landfall on the Caribbean island and immediately killed 3,100 people.But Iota was a hurricane of a new type. Initiated by a tropical wave off the coast of Colombia on Nov. 10, Iota developed rapidly and three days later became a tropical storm. Two days later, it intensified overnight from a Category 1 storm of winds at least 74 mph, to a Category 5 storm with winds of at least 157 mph.This rapid intensification at what is usually the end of the hurricane season testifies to how much warmer the Caribbean has become and how this warmth makes the storms brewed there more powerful.   Meteorologists looking at 120 years worth of data have established that hurricanes’ forward speed has recently diminished by 17%. This makes them more destructive since structures have to withstand their winds for longer, and they can drop more rain. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

So, it is clear that we, as a public, cannot afford to be nonchalant about social gatherings any more,” he said.“We cannot wait for a government workplace shut down and, must instead, take responsibility on ourselves.”Delivering his message at midday Mass, which was streamed live online from St John’s Cathedral, Bishop Leahy confirmed that all Masses – not just Sunday Masses – will no longer be held in public until further notice.He appealed to people not to attend funerals, unless they are immediate relatives or particularly close friends. Doing otherwise would, he added, “could enter into the realms of recklessness”.“A great saying found in all religions tells us: ‘do onto others as you would want done onto you’. It’s the Golden Rule and its application is never more timely than in the face of the radical measures we have to take in stopping the spread of the Coronavirus,” Bishop Leahy said.“What we can and ought to do is take responsibility. And we need to start by reviewing our lifestyle completely for the coming weeks.”“For the sake of a few weeks, we need to make sacrifices.”PEOPLE WILL DIE“Of course, we are afraid of cutting back in business and services; that’s completely understandable but we are at a point where it is now so evident that if we don’t take short-term sacrifice, we will hurt long term,” he said.“We will hurt economically but we will hurt from a health perspective. And people will die.”Bishop Leahy continued: “While the Government hasn’t yet called for a lockdown, could we not already voluntarily do our part to effectively, as much as we can, reduce our interactions with one another.”He argued that unless Ireland follows China’s example of “closing down for a matter of weeks all non essential services, we could pay dearly”.“Social distancing is vital. Families have been told to avoid children mixing with others. I would appeal to young adults in particular to do their part,” he said.People who continue to socialise in “large crowds” particularly in “bars”, “could be putting their own loved ones at risk”.“And, of course, in keeping to the HSE advice, there should be no hand-shaking or hugs regardless. Social distancing must be observed now, as difficult as that is.”Regarding funeral services, he added: “Once this crisis has passed, and it will pass, another ceremony can be arranged for all those who should not now attend.”“They can then gather and pay their respects in that great Irish way and let the family know they share their loss. In the meantime, phone-calls, texts and social media can be used to convey support at this very difficult and extraordinary time.”center_img Annie Lynch is the first person to receive the Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine in Ireland Limerick Post Show | Careers & Health Sciences Event for TY Students NewsCommunityHealthLimerick Bishop encourages people to go into lockdown mode to help save livesBy David Raleigh – March 15, 2020 241 Limerick health chiefs urge public not to withhold information on virus contacts, as they investigate “complex and serious outbreaks” across midwest region Print WhatsApp Shannon Chamber welcomes announcement that drive-thru Covid-19 testing centre to open at Shannon Airport Twitterlast_img read more

first_img Previous articleSpring plant sale coming upNext articleBUILDING PERMITS: March 21 – March 27, 2021 Federico Martinez Quiroz, Rhodes vie for MCH board seat Facebook WhatsApp Facebook Twitter By Federico Martinez – April 4, 2021 Ben Quiroz, left, and Kathy Rhodes Ben Casey Quiroz is seeking a second four-year term on the Ector County Hospital District Board on May 1. But he’ll have to fend off a challenge from newcomer Kathy Rhodes for the District 7 board seat.Quiroz, a chiropractor at HQ Chiropractic in Odessa, said he is seeking re-election because he has the experience and leadership skills to make sure Medical Center Hospital continues to provide quality services to the community.“The reason for running for the hospital board again is to assure not only my constituents but the entire community we have strong leadership and a bright future at MCH,” Quiroz said. “Over the last 4 years we have overcome many obstacles like changes in administration, a mass shooting, financial struggles and a global pandemic.“I am currently the only member on the board actively in healthcare. It is important to have a healthcare provider on the board to bring perspective to decision making and strategic planning. I want to see current projects through completion.”Those projects include providing affordable housing for healthcare workers and developing more community partnerships, Quiroz said. For example, he noted the collaboration between MCH and Odessa College, to create the first community college simulation hospital.“I also want to help with the evolution of our relationship with Texas Tech and their participation in creating quality healthcare providers for our region,” Quiroz said.Rhodes and her husband are the co-owners of Custom Wholesale Supply and Johnstone Supply Chain specializing in the wholesale of heating and air condition systems – a family-owned business in operation for 45 years.Rhodes said she decided to make a bid for the board seat because residents need their voices heard, and she wants to make sure future decisions made by the hospital are fiscally responsible.“There is an old saying I am reminded of when I think about how my candidacy for this office has come to be, that the office should seek the person, rather than the person the office,” Rhodes said. “It is a humbling experience to have had this adventure begin exactly in this manner, with so many members and leaders of our community spontaneously reaching out to me and urging me to run.“In running I want the constituents of our district to know this campaign isn’t about me, rather it is about making sure our community is served with the finest healthcare possible, that their voices are heard and taken with me when I vote, and that the taxpayer’s resources are treated with the fiscal prudence that we all take in our businesses.”Rhodes said several major issues need to be addressed. Those include making sure medical billing costs are transparent and predictable.“Another major issue is honoring the commitments we made to those who spent their careers working for our hospital and caring for our community,” Rhodes said. “Taking away the healthcare benefits that our retirees earned was disgraceful, and if elected I will ensure this never happens again.”Rhodes is referring to a controversial board decision in 2016, to approve administration’s request to strip a group of retirees’ original healthcare benefits and give them health reimbursement accounts instead so the hospital could save money. The group of about 300 retirees then filed a lawsuit against the hospital and the board, but in April 2017 a judge ruled in favor of the hospital.The group of retirees appealed, and after an election in May 2017 all incumbent board members in four of the seven districts were voted off the hospital board and the hospital’s CEO, CFO and other executive team members announced their resignations. A settlement agreement was finally reached in October 2018.“Being fiscally prudent and conservative not only means using taxpayer resources with extreme care, but also requires looking after the structural outlook of the hospital,” Rhodes said. “Part of that includes evaluating whether the hospital should remain in the newly created TIRZ district, especially in the light of costs stemming from COVID.”Quiroz did not address the benefits controversy, but credits the current board and new administration with helping to mend fences and providing strong leadership during the community’s struggle with the COVID-19 pandemic.“The people in our administration are local heroes,” Quiroz said. “(MCH CEO and President Russell) Tippin and his team have knocked it out of the park with the handling of the mass vaccination clinics and tirelessly serving our community.“We want to make sure we allow them to do their job and encourage and support their vision for MCH’s future.”Quiroz added: “The retiree fund continues to work and provide the past employees healthcare benefits. MCH will continue to provide support for all our current and past employees.”Quiroz said the hospital needs to improve community awareness of life-saving procedures MCH offers like TAVR and WATCHMAN. He also believes the hospital can do a better job of educating the community about preventable diseases like hypertension and diabetes.“It is time for Odessa to take ownership of our opportunities and a key component of that is providing quality healthcare for the region,” Quiroz said. “MCH has a lot of opportunity in the next 4 years without the distraction of COVID and the right leadership.”Rhodes identifies herself as a “Christian, wife, mother, grandmother, conservative and businesswoman.” While residing in Phoenix, she attended Glendale Community College and Arizona State. She and her husband have been married 39 years and have three children.A breast and skin cancer survivor, Rhodes is a motivational speaker on both subjects, and her efforts have been recognized by numerous organizations, including the American Cancer Society.She is the incoming vice-regent of the Daughters of The American Revolution Nathaniel Davis Chapter. A longtime member of the Odessa Downtown Lions Club, Rhodes is currently the Lions Regional Diabetic Chairman for District 2T3. She is also a VIP Patron of the Ector County Republican Women.Quiroz, who was born and raised in Odessa, is a 1997 graduate of Permian High School. He earned a bachelor’s of science degree from the University of Texas in San Antonio and Doctor of Chiropractic from Parker University. He and his wife Betty have three sons, Adrian, Andrew and Cash.He currently serves as board chairman of the Odessa Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, is a District 15 representative of the State Bar of Texas Grievance Committee and TIRZ Board MCH Representative.Recent awards and recognition’s include Odessa Under 40 in 2019, PA.

first_imgKABC-TV(RIVERSIDE, Calif.) —  A son and daughter of David and Louise Turpin spoke out in court for the first time Friday as their parents were sentenced for torturing and imprisoning them for years.“Now I’m taking my life back,” a daughter — one of the Turpins’ 13 children — said in court. “I’m a fighter. I’m strong and I’m shooting through life like a rocket.”“I’m in college now and living independently,” she said. “I love hanging out with my friends and life is great. I believe everything happens for a reason. Life may have been bad, but it made me strong. I fought to become the person I am.”“I saw my dad change my mom,” she said, visibly shaking and clutching tissues. “They almost changed me.” The Turpins abused 12 of their 13 children, including in some cases shackling them and beating them routinely, prosecutors said. They pleaded guilty in February to charges including torture and false imprisonment.David and Louise Turpin were sentenced Friday to 25 years to life.A Turpin son said in court Friday, “I cannot describe in words what we went through growing up. Sometimes I still have nightmares of things that had happened, such as my siblings being chained up or getting beaten. But that is the past and this is now.”“I love my parents and have forgiven them for a lot of the things that they did to us,” he said. “I have learned so much and become very independent.”He said he learned how to ride a bike, and since then he rides everywhere.“I live in an apartment and go to a nearby college. I am getting a bachelor’s degree in software engineering, and after I get my bachelor’s degree I’m going to get a job as a software engineer and go to school part-time to get my master’s degree.”That son also read a statement in court on behalf of one of his sisters: “I love both of my parents so much. Although it may not have been the best way of raising us, I’m glad that they did, because it made me the person I am today. I just want to thank them for teaching me about God and faith. I hope they never lose their faith.”Louise Turpin’s lip quivered and both parents wiped tears from their eyes as the statement was read.“I pray often for them,” that daughter’s statement continued. “I am doing well. I’m going to college full time. I have an apartment … we are not supposed to necessarily understand God’s will. But we are only to follow and to trust in him.”A lawyer read a statement on behalf of another daughter who asked the court to remove the restraining order so she could visit her parents.“I want the court to know our parents loved each other and loved each of their children,” the statement said. “I remember our mother sitting in her recliner saying she ‘don’t know what to do.’ She didn’t want to use rope or chain, but was afraid her children were taking in too much sugar and caffeine. “David Turpin said in a statement to the judge on Friday: “I never intended for any harm to come to my children. I’m sorry if I’ve done anything to cause them harm… I love my children and believe my children love me. …I hope the very best for my children in the future.”Louise Turpin said in court, “I’m sorry for everything I’ve done to hurt my children. I love my children so much… I look forward to the day I can see them, hug them, and tell them I’m sorry.”The couple was arrested in January 2018, after their 17-year-old daughter escaped their Perris, California, home and called 911.The never-before-heard 911 call exclusively obtained this week by ABC News reveals that moment she turned her parents in.“My parents are abusive,” the 17-year-old told the dispatcher. “My two little sisters right now are chained up right now… they’re chained up to their bed.”The 17-year-old alleged that she and her siblings would be chained up for one or two months and only freed to brush their teeth or use the bathroom, an officer who interviewed the teen testified.The teen said she and her siblings never ate breakfast and would only eat peanut butter, bologna, a frozen burrito or chips for lunch and dinner, the officer testified.When rescued, all the children except for the youngest, a toddler, were severely malnourished, prosecutors said. The eldest victim — a 29-year-old woman — weighed only 82 pounds.The 17-year-old Turpin daughter told the dispatcher that she and her siblings lived in filth and that she hadn’t bathed in nearly one year.“Sometimes I wake up and I can’t breathe because because how dirty the house is,” she said.The teen said she hadn’t been to a doctor in five years and had never been to a dentist in her life.The adult Turpin children are now healthy, their lawyer, Jack Osborn, told reporters Friday.“All of them are doing really well physically,” Osborn said. “That’s a miracle.”“They want to be normal adults — going to Target, going to baseball games,” he said. “We are confident — given what they’ve been through and how resilient that they are — that they’re going to be really successful.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

first_img View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Navy View post tag: Defense View post tag: report View post tag: Defence A total of 16 incidents were reported in November 2012. Compared to November 2011 and November 2010, there has been an increase in the number of actual incidents reported in November 2012.Of the 16 actual incidents reported during November 2012, two were Category 1 (very significant) incidents, four were Category 2 (moderately significant) incidents, five were Category 3 (less significant) incidents and five were petty theft (minimum significant) incidents. This is the first time that Category 1 incidents have been reported during the reporting period of November 2010-2012. However, the number of Category 3 and petty theft incidents reported in November 2012 had remained the same compared to November 2011.Over the three reporting periods, the number of Category 2 incidents had fluctuated (seven incidents in November 2010 to three incidents in November 2011 and four incidents in November 2012) while the Category 3 and petty theft incidents had increased (five incidents in November 2010 to 10 incidents in November 2011 and November 2012). The reason for such a trend was due to the decrease in the number of incidents involving vessels while underway in November 2012 and 2011 compared to the same period in 2010. In November 2010, half of the total number of incidents involved vessels while underway, but in November 2011 and November 2012, more than three-quarter of the incidents involved vessels at anchor or at berth.Category 1 incidentsOf the two Category 1 incidents reported in November 2012, one involved the hijacking of chemical tanker, Zafirah on 19 Nov 12 when pirates armed with knives and pistol boarded and took control of the chemical tanker while she was underway in the South China Sea. Details of the hijacking of Zafirah are featured as a case study in this report. The other Category 1 incident involved the illegal siphoning of fuel from tanker, Yunita on 11 Nov 12 when she was anchored at the Muara Berau Anchorage, Samarinda, Indonesia. Eight robbers armed with pistol, knives and parangs (long knives) boarded and forced the tanker to pump out about 80MT of Marine Gas Oil (MGO) cargo to an unknown barge. The robbers also took the crew’s personal belongings before they escaped.Category 2 incidentsIn November 2012, four Category 2 incidents were reported. Of these, two incidents were reported in South China Sea, one incident at anchorage in Indonesia and one incident in India. In these incidents, the pirates/robbers were armed with long knives or rods; and operated in larger groups of eight to 10 men. In one incident, they assaulted the crew and in another, they tied the crew to the foxle. In November 2010, six of the seven Category 2 incidents involved vessels while underway. However, in November 2011 and November 2012, more than half of the Category 2 incidents involved vessels berthed or anchored at ports and anchorages.Category 3 and Petty Theft incidentsIn November 2012, 10 Category 3 and petty theft incidents were reported. Of these, eight incidents occurred in Indonesia, one incident in India and one incident in the Straits of Malacca and Singapore. Of the eight incidents reported in Indonesia, three occurred at Jakarta Anchorage, two at Belawan Anchorage, two at anchorages off East Kalimantan (Adang Bay and Samarinda) and one off Nipa Transit Anchorage. The robbers operated in groups of three to five men, armed with knives and boarded the vessels during hours of darkness (between 1950 hrs and 0600 hrs). The items targeted were ship stores such as drums of paint or firefighting equipment, or engine spare parts. The robbers escaped immediately as soon as they have stolen the items or were spotted by the crew. The ReCAAP ISC urges the relevant authorities to increase surveillance at their ports and anchorages to deter robbers; encourages ship masters and crew to exercise vigilance when their vessels are anchored or berthed, and report all incidents to the coastal State immediately.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, January 2, 2013; Image: ReCAAP View post tag: issues View post tag: latest View post tag: ReCAAPcenter_img Back to overview,Home naval-today ReCAAP Issues Latest Monthly Piracy Report ReCAAP Issues Latest Monthly Piracy Report View post tag: piracy View post tag: Naval Share this article View post tag: Monthly January 2, 2013last_img read more

first_img Royal Australian Navy moves forward with Plan Galileo navaltoday May 7, 2020, by The Royal Australian Navy is making progress with Plan Galileo, an innovative project that delivers the capability to sustain the navy’s growing fleet to ensure it can fight and win at sea.Launching the Plan Galileo website recently, Rear Admiral Wendy Malcolm, Head Maritime Systems reiterated her vision as a new way of thinking that fundamentally changes how the navy carries out sustainment of the fleet.“The aim of Plan Galileo is that in 2025, defence will operate in a nationally integrated sustainment environment that consistently provides affordable, reliable and fit for purpose systems and ships to navy,” Rear Admiral Malcolm said.“That means ensuring we can provide certainty and work for our uniformed personnel and industry, as we need them working cooperatively, continuing what they do, and helping to prepare our navy for the new ships that will be delivered in an era of continuous shipbuilding.”As explained, the project is also focused on effective utilisation, growth and support of navy’s technical and logistics mastery, including ongoing involvement of fleet support units throughout Australia in the delivery of maintenance and its maritime logistics personnel in the provision of integrated logistics support and 21st century supply chain development and management.“We must optimise workforce development and leadership programs to increase technical and logistics, leadership and supervisory proficiency, facilitate career progression and enable the personal and professional growth of our workforce,” Rear Admiral Malcolm added.The size and complexity of the fleet is expected to grow by more than 50 per cent over the next two decades requiring additional highly skilled personnel.Specifically, Plan Galileo incorporates a national, integrated approach to sustainment of navy assets that supports the Naval Shipbuilding Plan and aligns with the navy’s Plan Pelorus and Plan Mercator.Plan Galileo will build on the Australian Industry Capability Program by incentivising industry to build regional and local capacity.A core component of Plan Galileo is the regional maintenance centres (RMCs). These are self-contained sustainment centres at navy home ports comprising defence, primes and small businesses that will be able to sustain Australian vessels and then return them to sea utilising domestic workforce and focused on local supply chains. These centres are currently planned for Cairns, Darwin, Perth and Sydney.“While Plan Galileo is a long-term project out to 2025, we are already implementing a number of its elements as a ‘proof of concept’ within our Arafura-class offshore patrol vessel (OPV) program,” Rear Admiral Malcolm further said.“Defence will test ideas, learn from our mistakes – and our successes – and work these into the overall plan as it is rolled out on a national scale.” Authorities Back to overview,Home naval-today Royal Australian Navy moves forward with Plan Galileo View post tag: Plan Galileo View post tag: Royal Australian Navy Share this articlelast_img read more
