The report highlights in particular the defence contribution to the Hurricane Irma relief effort, training provided to the African Union Mission to Somalia and UK support to the Lebanese military.Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said:“Whether it’s contributing to the destruction of Daesh or rapidly responding to natural disasters, our world class Armed Forces are always ready to help make the world more secure.“The variety of roles our military does, as highlighted in today’s CSSF report, embodies the role Global Britain plays in maintaining international stability.”The report details Defence’s significant contribution to the £57 million released towards the Caribbean response to Hurricane Irma. UK military, working alongside other government bodies, helped to deliver the re-electrification of Anguilla within three months of the hurricane.British support to the African Union Mission to Somalia is building their capacity to restore stability in Somalia and transition to Somali-led security, protecting civilians and tackling the use of child soldiers.Elsewhere, UK support to the Lebanese military contributes to the country’s successful operations to counter terrorist and destabilising activity within its borders. The Lebanon is still the only nation – and the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) the only army – to have successfully repelled an invasion from Daesh.last_img read more

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Joe Ryan for Bloomberg News:New York State is mounting a broad effort to reduce the cost of building a wind farm off the coast of Long Island, an ambitious push to generate clean power in U.S. waters.The state’s Energy Research and Development Authority plans to bid for a federal lease to develop a 81,000-acre (127-square-mile) site in the Atlantic Ocean. If it wins, New York would undertake initial site studies and pursue an agreement to sell the electricity. The state would then hold an auction of its own, selling development rights to the highest bidder.New York officials see offshore wind as critical for meeting the state’s goal to get half its power from renewable sources by 2030. By doing the initial planning and guaranteeing a buyer for the power, the state intends to make the project appealing to developers, driving down costs and making it more likely the wind farm will be built.“This is a resource that has to be, and will be, developed,” John B. Rhodes, president and chief executive of the New York State authority, said in an interview Friday. “It is our job to do it as surefootedly and cost efficiently as possible.”Offshore wind is among the most expensive sources of power in the world. While it has thrived in Europe, the technology has languished in the U.S. as utilities balked at the price. If New York succeeds in lining up a buyer, the state would remove much of the risk for developers, and ultimately make the power cheaper for consumers, said Willett Kempton, a professor at the University of Delaware who studies offshore wind.“This is New York telling the country that offshore wind is going to happen, ” Kempton said in an interview. “No other state has done this before.”Full article: New York Has a Plan to Make Long Island Offshore Wind Cheaper ‘This Is New York Telling the Country That Offshore Wind Is Going to Happen’last_img read more

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York CHAPTER I:AROUND THE WORLDHere are some things everyone should know about global warming (all reports guaranteed true):In Europe, the bears are confused. It’s too warm to hibernate at their normal time, and all the berries are gone. Where the bears will find food, and what they’ll do with their spare time if warm weather persists, is anybody’s guess.Butterflies are moving north, from Italy all the way to Finland. If you happen to live in Helsinki and have just spent a fortune on down vests and large quantities of alcoholic beverages for a long, dark winter, butterflies can be quite disconcerting.The flowers are also bewildered—many blooming during Europe’s increasingly warm winters (which seem like early spring to them). Forsythia is blooming several months early in alpine valleys in Austria.In the Rockies, ski resorts are making contingency plans to move to higher elevations, where there’s actually some dependable snow. Some resorts have already lobbied the U.S. government for new leases on federal land at higher altitudes.On a positive note, global warming is nothing but good news for cockroaches! They thrive in warmer weather, so we can expect them to reproduce more frequently during the year, and more of them will survive the new, shorter winters. (Same goes for fleas and ticks, by the way.)CHAPTER II:IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOODIs global warming coming to your neighborhood? Look for possible clues:A. While walking your dog in January you start to sneeze and your eyes begin to itch. Is that really a field of ragweed your dog is peeing in?B. Your local NFL team has shed its hot helmets and pads and is now wearing shorts and T-shirts and playing in the brand new NTFL: the National Touch Football League. Their stadium has been completely air-conditioned.C. Canadian travel ads appear in your local newspaper, offering “Yukon Ice-Skating Vacations”—a tour of the last three naturally frozen ponds in North America.CHAPTER III:TAKE ACTION!Here’s what you can do about global warming:Politically:Write a letter expressing your concerns to President Obama, your senator and your congressman. This will make you feel better, but will accomplish absolutely nothing.Ironically, some say our only hope may be Texas, an epicenter of global warming. If Texas has six months of 110-degree heat and its low-lying cities (i.e. Galveston and Corpus Christi) vanish into the Gulf of Mexico, that may get some attention from Texas Gov. Rick Perry. Then again, maybe not.Personally:1. Build a large wooden boat. Collect a male and a female of your favorite species.2. Buy retirement property in the “New Sun Belt” while prices are still low. (This includes North Dakota, Montana, parts of Idaho, Alaska and northern Maine.)3. Check out emerging investment opportunities: Roach Motel is clearly one product poised to set new sales records. And Wall Street is excited about earnings from companies that make SPF 400 sunscreen products, as well as the rumor that Warren Buffett has bought the two remaining companies in America that still make large hats.4. Start a branch of the GWDC (Global Warming Defense Corps) on your block. You’ll learn basic survival skills, like “Xtreme grilling”—including recipes for simple meals to cook on the hood of your car or on concrete sidewalks.Note: Experts will also teach you which strategies and weapons are effective against hordes of hungry, confused European bears.Global warming is here. It’s time for all of us to adapt and evolve.last_img read more

first_imgMar 10, 2009 (CIDRAP News) – US public health spending is very uneven from state to state and is eroding in the face of the economic recession, the nonprofit group Trust for America’s Health (TFAH) said in a report released today.State shares of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) funds for disease prevention and other public health purposes averaged $17.60 per person in fiscal year 2008, but they ranged all the way from $12.74 for Indiana to $52.78 for Alaska, says the report by the nonpartisan health advocacy group based in Washington, DC.Meanwhile, state and local public health departments shed 11,000 jobs in 2008, said Robert (Bobby) Pestronk, executive director of the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), at a press teleconference on the report today.”A survey by NACCHO and CSTE [the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists] found that another 10,000 public health jobs may be cut in the next year or two,” Pestronk added.Jeff Levi, executive director of TFAH, said overall public health spending, now about $35 billion a year, is about $20 billion short of what is needed.The report, titled “Shortchanging America’s Health: A State-by-State Look at How Federal Public Health Dollars Are Spent and Key State Health Facts,” was produced in cooperation with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.Uneven state sharesLevi said about 75% of the CDC’s budget is distributed to states and communities. For fiscal year 2008, those allocations totaled $5.35 billion, according to the report.”It’s a tiny fraction of what we spend on treating people after they become sick,” Levi said. “Our priorities are upside down.”By region, the Northeast and West received higher shares than the Midwest and South. State per capita amounts averaged $22.49 in the Northeast, $23.94 n the West, $18.43 in the South, and $17.69 in the Midwest.Levi said that for some programs the CDC just doesn’t have enough money to fund every state. “In most cases where states are on the lower end of the scale, it’s because there’s not enough funding to go around and it’s often up to the luck of the draw.” For example, he said only 22 states are funded for school health programs.Because the CDC has limited funds to distribute, it awards some money on the basis of a formula and the rest on a competitive basis, with the result that some states lose out, Jim Pearsol, chief program officer for public health performance at the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO), told CIDRAP News in an interview.The TFAH report shows that state shares of federal health funding streams other than from the CDC also varied considerably. Funds from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) ranged from $9.96 for Kansas to $70.75 for Alaska, averaging $21.43 per person overall. The national total for 2008 was about $5.72 billion.Allocations for hospital preparedness for public health emergencies averaged $1.43 per person but varied from 72 cents for New York to $2.15 for Wyoming, the report says. The money is distributed by the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) in the Department of Health and Human Services. The total that went to states in 2008 was $361.6 million.The report also looks at state public health funding and shows wide disparities. It lists median state spending on public health at $33.71 per person, with a range all the way from $3.37 in Nevada to $172.21 in Hawaii. It notes that states allocate and report their budget in different ways and provide varying levels of detail, making comparisons difficult.Health budget cutsThe report says that at least 46 states are facing deficits in their 2009 and/or 2010 budgets.Pestronk said the state and local public health job losses last year and additional expected ones will have noticeable effects: “In the face of the Salmonella outbreak, restaurants won’t be inspected as frequently as they had been.” In addition, surveillance of infectious diseases will be reduced, and officials will sometimes have to decide between immunization and treatment programs, he said.A national survey of 2,422 local health departments in November and December found that more than half had either laid off employees or lost some through attrition, according to the report. It says that 44% of state health departments have a job vacancy rate of 10% or higher.Levi noted that the recently passed economic stimulus bill included $1 billion for public health. He said that includes $650 million for community disease prevention, $300 million to expand immunization programs, and $50 million to battle healthcare-associated infections.”We still don’t know the exact nature of the initiatives the administration will plug these funds into,” he said. The money will make a big difference, he said, adding, “It’s a critical investment but a one-time-only investment.”Pestronk said it appears that the immunization funds may be used mainly to buy vaccines, but NACCHO hopes the money can also be used to hire staff. “With the kinds of layoffs and cuts we’ve been talking about, the very staff needed to deliver the vaccines are being lost at the same time that funds are being made available to increase the supply,” he said.An analysis by TFAH and the New York Academy of Medicine concluded it would take a total of $55 billion to $60 billion a year, or $187 per person, to adequately fund public health, the report states. Levi said current spending totals about $35 billion.”Based on the current funding model, the federal government should provide 60 percent of this increase ($12 billion more than fiscal year 2005 dollars) and state and local governments should provide 40 percent of this increase ($8 billion annually),” the report says.It acknowledges that states and localities will find it tough to increase funding during the current recession, but suggests that they devise funding strategies to implement once the economy improves. Possible sources of new money include taxes on soda, candy, and tobacco products, it says.State officials’ viewsDavid Sundwall, MD, executive director of the Utah Department of Health, said he welcomed the essential message of the report but attached less importance to the state funding rankings. The report lists Utah as 39th in its share of CDC funding, at $15.73 per person.”Those of us who are state health officials are grateful that there are people looking at this because we’re convinced that public health in general is underfunded,” he told CIDRAP News. “In my view as state health officer, I wouldn’t consider the rankings as useful to me as the message. I’m not going to lose any sleep over the ranking but will use my voice to call for better funding for pubic health, as opposed to medical care and research.”At $2 trillion a year, US healthcare spending has gotten out of balance with the rest of the economy, Sundwall said, adding, “We’ve got to look at what we’re investing in the healthcare complex and get back into things that improve our health, and not just provide services.”Sundwall said he questions the utility of state rankings for health spending. He observed that in evaluations by the United Health Foundation, Utah consistently ranks high for general health indicators, but the state gets “dinged” for relatively low per capita spending on public health.”While I would welcome more money and we’d spend it wisely and well, I’m not sure it’s a fair indicator,” he said. “If I were a legislator and I saw our health rankings and some of the success we do enjoy, I’d probably put it into other competing causes.”Sundwall said public health in Utah is feeling the effects of the recession and resulting budget cuts, even though the economy there is better than in many other places.Last September the Utah Legislature cut $33 million out of the health department’s budget, and the new budget the legislature is working on now would take about another $40 million, he said. “That requires me to lay off people. . . . It’s a sad, hard time to be a manager and have to go through these retrenchments. But we also acknowledge that in this economy, the public sector has to carry some freight just like the private sector.”Craig Acomb, chief financial officer at the Minnesota Department of Health, raised questions about how fully the TFAH report reflects Minnesota’s spending on public health and its share of federal health dollars. The state ranks 40th in CDC funds received, 48th in HRSA funds, and 28th in ASPR funds.While acknowledging that he hadn’t studied the report, he said it probably does not reflect a statewide health improvement program, passed this year, that will provide $47 million over the next 2 years to battle obesity and tobacco use.Also, he said, “A lot of public health in this state is funded at the local level,” with 53 community health boards across the state drawing funds from property taxes. Further, he said the state receives other federal funds for public health purposes not covered in the report, such as Environmental Protection Agency money to protect drinking water.”Even though we may not get the most money from the CDC, we have some of the highest health indicators in our people, with some of the lowest rates of diabetes, infant mortality, obesity,” Acomb said. “We’re certainly making effective use of the resources that we have.”Pearsol, of ASTHO, said he thinks the report “resonates well with what the states are experiencing.” He commented that the wide variation in CDC allocations to states shows that the CDC itself is underfunded, and added, “It’s quite true that the recession is having a devastating impact on general revenue funds in states. . . . Those [public health] job losses are real losses.””The whole point that TFAH is making is that doubling the investment would be more akin to the need from a population-based health perspective,” he said.See also: Mar 10 TFAH news release with link to the full reporthttp://healthyamericans.org/report/61/shortchanging09last_img read more

first_imgThe Jakarta Police have uncovered a ring of alleged illegal mask manufacturers seeking to tap into the recent skyrocketing price of masks following fears of a global spread of the novel coronavirus. The Jakarta Police raided a warehouse in Cilincing, North Jakarta, on Thursday where investigators seized 60 boxes containing 3,000 masks. Local residents tipped off police about a building allegedly being used as a storehouse to hoard masks. The activity was the main cause of the increasing price of masks in the capital over the past two months, Jakarta Police spokesman Sr. Comr. Yusri Yunus said.The police later found that the warehouse was not only being used to stockpile masks but also functioned as a mask production facility. Investigators discovered that the company, whose name was not disclosed, could produce 850 boxes of masks every day.“The company was… LOG INDon’t have an account?
