first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Republican Suffolk County lawmakers are calling for federal oversight of the Suffolk County Police Department after the recently retired chief of department was accused beating a handcuffed suspect and covering it up.The county legislators also called for Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone to expand his search for a new police commissioner and questioned the wisdom of nominating Timothy Sini, a former federal prosecutor who most recently served as a deputy county executive, to replace Ed Webber, the retiring police commissioner.“How can anyone today say that we don’t need outside assistance?” asked Legis. Robert Trotta (R-Fort Salonga), a former Suffolk County police detective who said he was “shocked at how bad it is, the culture of corruption.”Trotta made the announcement Tuesday during a news conference in reaction to the news Friday that ex-chief James Burke was denied bail after pleading not guilty to violating a suspect’s civil rights and conspiracy to obstruct justice. Trotta was flanked by fellow Republican legislators, including Legis. Kevin McCaffrey (R-Lindenhurst), the legislature’s GOP minority leader, who recently won re-election over Sini, who was since named deputy Suffolk police commissioner.Both lawmakers said that Sini might be the right person to be the county’s next top cop, but now is not the time for politically connected promotions.“Suffolk County is under a dark cloud of suspicion and this is unacceptable,” said McCaffrey. “Now, an inexperienced individual is being considered to the top post in the department. We need someone qualified. This is no time for on-the-job training.”“Political connections should not determine how an investigation goes or who the police commissioner is,” agreed Trotta.Justin Meyers, a Bellone spokesman, called the press conference “a political, partisan attack” and defended Sini.“He has the local law enforcement knowledge,” Meyers said. “He brought in John Barry, the lead investigator on the Sheldon Silver case, to be the Deputy Chief of Department. He brought in Stu Cameron with his 30 years of law enforcement experience to be Chief of Department. He’s already reached out to the FBI on the Gilgo Beach murders. Tim hit the ground running.”As for the call for federal oversight, Trotta noted that most cops are “moral, hardworking individuals,” but Burke’s arrest has tainted the department. He and McCaffrey cited comments made by U.S. District Court Judge Leonard Wexler when Wexler denied bail for Burke on the grounds that he is a danger to the community. The judge had said: “The corruption of an entire department by this defendant is shocking.”The call for a federal monitor came two years after the U.S. Department of Justice settled a probe into allegations that the police department turned a blind eye to hate crimes before one left an immigrant dead.last_img read more

The E-Scan offers insights in 10 primary areas affecting credit unions, including lending, economics, technology and of course marketing. The E-Scan is a must-read for any credit union executive and is also an outstanding planning tool to use.The marketing section is entitled “The Big Deal Behind Social Media.” It also mentions many of the other top marketing trends for credit unions, including disruptors, regulations, Generation Z, the evolution of marketing, highly personalized marketing, consumer preferences and the humanization of digital. But the bulk of the section centers around social media and engagement.According to the E-Scan, there are five factors that come into play when brining engagement into your social media efforts:(1)    Bring value firstAs the E-Scan notes, “social media isn’t always about direct response…..once you’re identified as a serial promoter, people will shut you off and tune you out.” Look for ways to engage—not sell—on your social media platforms. continue reading » 24SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

first_imgCUNA and several financial services trade organizations petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court this week to review a case involving Fair Housing Act (FHA) claims filed by municipalities. CUNA and the trades ask the Supreme Court to review Bank of America v. City of Miami and Wells Fargo v. City of Miami, as the organizations have a “significant interest in ensuring the FHA is enforced in a fair and reasonable way.”The city of Miami brought suit against the two banks arguing that discriminatory actions against city residents entitles the city to damages for indirect harm. The city argued that foreclosures and other events stemming from unfavorable mortgages resulted in lost revenue from lower property taxes and other incurred expenses.“The court of appeals held that the proximate cause requirement for private litigation under the FHA imposes little if any effective limitation on novel FHA claims by plaintiffs who are not the direct victims of an alleged FHA violation and instead seek compensation for “ripples of harm” extending outwards from such violations,” the brief reads. “The massive wave of litigation under the FHA—brought by private lawyers on behalf of municipalities—will impose potentially enormous costs on lenders without significantly advancing the goals of the FHA.” continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

first_imgInvestors were expecting Moderna‘s vaccine to be highly effective after Pfizer, another frontrunner in the Covid-19 vaccine, said last week that its vaccine was more than 90% effective. Moderna’s candidate, like that of the Pfizer-BioNTech partnership, is using messenger RNA, or mRNA, technology. It’s a new approach to vaccines that uses genetic material to provoke an immune response.Moderna said Monday its vaccine remains stable at 36 to 46 degrees Fahrenheit, the temperature of a standard home or medical refrigerator, for up to 30 days. It can be stored for up to six months at negative 4 degrees Fahrenheit. By comparison, Pfizer’s vaccine requires a storage temperature of minus 94 degrees Fahrenheit.Moderna told investors on Oct. 29 that it was “actively preparing” for the global launch of its potential vaccine after completing enrollment in its trial a week earlier. It said about 37% of the participants were from minority communities and 42% had other conditions or ages that put them at high risk of severe disease. Males outnumber females in the trial by 53% to 47%.Out of the 95 Covid-19 cases, 20 participants identified as being from “diverse” communities, including 12 Hispanic people, four African Americans, three Asian Americans and one multiracial.Moderna said it plans to apply for emergency use authorization with the Food and Drug Administration in “the coming weeks.” The trial will continue to accrue additional data relevant to safety and efficacy even after an application is submitted, the company said.By the end of the year, Moderna expects to have approximately 20 million doses of the vaccine ready to ship in the U.S., the company said. It said it remains on track to manufacture 500 million to 1 billion doses globally in 2021.The company already has supply agreements in North America, the Middle East and in other regions of the world. It announced in August that it had reached a deal with the U.S. government to supply 100 million doses of its vaccine. The deal gives the federal government the option to purchase up to 400 million additional doses. The U.S. had already invested $955 million in Moderna’s Covid-19 vaccine development, bringing its total investment up to $2.48 billion, the company said at the time.In August, Moderna said it was charging between $32 and $37 per dose for its vaccine for some customers, under cheaper “pandemic pricing.” The company said it was in discussion for larger volume agreements that will have a lower price.This is a developing story. Please check back for updates.–CNBC’s Meg Tirrell contributed to this report. Shares of the company jumped by more than 11% in premarket trading. The announcement follows on the heels of similar news last week from Pfizer’s late-stage Covid-19 vaccine trial as pharmaceutical companies across the world race against the clock to find ways to prevent the virus, which has spread to more than 54.4 million people, killing more than 1.3 million.“This is a pivotal moment in the development of our COVID-19 vaccine candidate,” Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel said in a statement. “Since early January, we have chased this virus with the intent to protect as many people around the world as possible. All along, we have known that each day matters. This positive interim analysis from our Phase 3 study has given us the first clinical validation that our vaccine can prevent COVID-19 disease, including severe disease.”- Advertisement – Moderna said preliminary phase three trial data show its coronavirus vaccine is more than 94% effective in preventing Covid-19 — a result CEO Stephane Bancel called a “game-changer.”The analysis evaluated 95 confirmed Covid-19 infections among the trial’s 30,000 participants. Moderna, which developed its vaccine in collaboration with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said 90 cases of Covid-19 were observed in the placebo group versus 5 cases observed in the group that received its two-dose vaccine. That resulted in an estimated vaccine efficacy of 94.5%, it said.- Advertisement – The Cambridge, Massachusetts-based company also said there were no “significant” safety concerns, adding the vaccine was generally safe and well-tolerated with the majority of adverse events in participants being labeled as mild or moderate. Side effects included pain at the injection site and, after the second dose, fatigue, muscle pain and headaches.“Knowing that we have a vaccine that would help more people who would take it is just a wonderful feeling,” Bancel said in an interview with CNBC. “As you know a lot of people have been reluctant in surveys to take a vaccine because I think we’re worried about the politicization of a vaccine, they’re worried about what you get with a flu shot you know 50% to 60% efficacy.”With an efficacy rate of 95%, “that’s a game-changer, I believe,” he said.- Advertisement – – Advertisement –last_img read more

first_img Investigators determined that 26 illness cases from August 2005 through June 2006 were caused by the same strain of Salmonella enterica serotype Enteritidis, according to the release. The same strain was found in product that people still had in their freezers, said Dr. Kirk Smith, supervisor of the Foodborne Disease Unit in the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH). “The frozen chicken entrees in these outbreaks are breaded, pre-browned and individually wrapped, so it’s likely most ill consumers mistakenly assumed they have been precooked,” said Kevin Elfering, dairy and food inspection director in the Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA), in a news release. He said people probably overlooked label instructions to fully cook the raw entrees and just heated them in a microwave. Although the kinds of products tied to these outbreaks are labeled as microwaveable, Minnesota officials warned not to cook them that way. “Microwaves vary in strength and tend to cook products unevenly; therefore, they are not appropriate for the primary preparation of raw meat and poultry,” the news release states. Salmonellosis symptoms include diarrhea, abdominal pain and cramps, and fever. They usually begin within 12 to 72 hours of exposure and subside within 5 to 7 days, but about 20% of cases require hospitalization, the MDH said. The other three illness cases were S Typhimurium infections with a DNA fingerprint that matched that of product in patients’ homes, Smith said. These cases prompted the USDA to issue a consumer advisory on Jul 3 (see link below). The products were produced by Aspen Foods and sold under a store brand name. Minnesota officials said they decided to warn the public of the risk because the labeling change will take time and because the products probably will still be marketed as “microwaveable.” Jul 21, 2006 (CIDRAP News) – In the wake of two outbreaks of Salmonella infection involving 29 cases, Minnesota health officials are warning the public to be careful when cooking frozen, pre-browned chicken entrees. Salmonella is sometimes found in raw chicken and is not considered an adulterant, making thorough cooking imperative, MDH and USDA officials said. For safety, raw poultry products must be cooked to an internal temperature of 165ºF. The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced a limited recall in March in response to this outbreak, but cases have continued, the MDH said. The products mostly come from two manufacturers, Aspen Foods in Chicago (USDA plant P-1358) and Serenade Foods, Milford, Ind. (USDA plant P-2375). They are sold under various brand names, including store names. The USDA said that if one cooks the products in a microwave oven, one should use a food thermometer to check the temperature at multiple points inside the product and should wait a while after cooking to allow the heat to spread evenly throughout it. The agency said it is requiring new labels clearly stating that frozen chicken entrees contain raw chicken and must be fully cooked to 165ºF. The outbreaks prompted state health and agriculture officials yesterday to “strongly advise” people not to cook stuffed chicken entrees in microwave ovens because of the risk of uneven and incomplete cooking.

first_imgManchester United set out to please their frustrated fans against Chelsea and Morgan Schneiderlin does not believe they could have done any more. United at least brought an end to a four-match losing run but are now eight without a win after the 0-0 draw at Old Trafford. As well as results, supporters have vented their anger at United’s style of play, particularly a lack of attacking threat. Ander Herrera thought he had broken the deadlock in the 56th minute from close range only for Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois to pull off an excellent save. The Spaniard could not believe he did not score, saying: “I think I put my foot correctly. I was in the right position. The cross of Anthony, I think, was very good. “I don’t know what happened, to be honest. I was going to celebrate it and saw the ball was not in. “We showed we were the better team but it was not enough. We cannot be happy but we can be proud of what we did. We have to be realistic, we have to win games but this is the way we have to play, I think.” Midfielder Schneiderlin told MUTV: ” We talked before the game and said it was a must for us to be aggressive, to be on the front foot and to attack, just for our fans because they deserve to see some attractive football. “Sometimes we can’t do that for whatever reason but it was a must for us to be on the front foot. We created some magnificent chances and for everyone in the crowd I think it was a beautiful game. “For us it was a good game as well because Chelsea are a very good team. But it will be hard to sleep because we didn’t win.” The clash between two struggling giants did not lack chances, and both keepers pulled off terrific saves while Juan Mata and Anthony Martial hit the woodwork for United. Schneiderlin was left mystified how his side did not secure the win but is confident better times lie ahead. The Frenchman said: “What more could we have done? We just needed to score one goal and then be able to play around it. “We know that if we can improve on the first part of the season, by scoring more goals and getting back to the strong defensive performances we had before the last few games, then anything can happen. “This isn’t finished. There are five months left, the second part of the season. We must be confident because we are Manchester United, we are one of the biggest teams in the world.” Press Associationlast_img read more
