Harmon says that, after the U.S. military and other federal law-enforcement agencies, state and local police form the largest single group of gun buys in the United States and, thus, could be a strong advocacy voice.

Please enter your email address here But this time, several House Democrats joined their Republican counterparts in voicing displeasure with Enterprise Florida. House Minority Leader Janet Cruz, D-Tampa, even broke ranks and voted with the GOP, although she was the only Democrat to do so on Tuesday.The shared criticism signals an area of bipartisan agreement at the outset of a legislative process that’s sure to entail a contentious and drawn-out process of argument and amendment.Two weeks ago, House Republicans aligned with Speaker Richard Corcoran, R-Land O’Lakes, to push through committee a “corporate welfare” crackdown measure. That bill would have eliminated Enterprise Florida, the state’s chief economic incentive program, and Visit Florida, a state-funded tourism marketing corporation.Corcoran changed course Monday, opting instead to overhaul the way Visit Florida operates and cut its annual funding from $76 million to $25 million. The bill’s sponsor, Rep. Paul Renner, R-Palm Coast, introduced a 190-page substitute amendment replacing all previous language relating to Visit Florida with what he called accountability reforms. It was adopted by voice vote, then the bill — with Enterprise Florida remaining on the chopping block — was approved 18-12.‘I’d be happy to kill it for you’ROUND 2: House Republicans passed a bill targeting Enterprise Florida and Visit Florida through a second committee stop on Tuesday. Some Democrats are starting to voice their disapproval as well.Rep. David Richardson, D-Miami Beach, was perhaps the most vocal opponent of the taxpayer-funded business assistance organization during a House Appropriations Committee hearing on Tuesday.“I have very little good to say about Enterprise Florida and the way it has been conducted in the past,” he said.Richardson said he was disappointed that the quasi-state agency has never lived up to it’s required 50-50, public-private funding match. Legislative audits show public funding has historically hovered around 90 percent since Enterprise Florida’s founding in 1996.“The statute as it currently reads requires that this public-private partnership be 50-50. It has never been 50-50,” he said.The South Florida Democrat added that the 10 percent private funding has been kept separate so that it could be used as a “slush fund” for items that would never have been allowed under regular government rules and regulations, such as splurging on expensive furniture, travel and meals.The rub, however, is that eliminating Enterprise Florida also would include reducing Visit Florida’s budget to pre-2009 levels under the substitute approved this week, something Richardson said he wasn’t prepared to do.“But if you pull out Enterprise Florida … I’d be happy to kill it for you,” he said.Rep. Katie Edwards, D-Sunrise, admitted that she and some of her committee colleagues were uncomfortable supporting Enterprise Florida incentives because they didn’t fully trust the performance data offered by Republican Gov. Rick Scott’s administration. Scott is currently seeking $151 million in funding for the Visit Florida and Enterprise Florida this year.“I would venture to say that the integrity of the reports and in the numbers leaves a lot to be desired,” she said.Edwards cited the Hertz Corp. as an example. In 2013, the rental car behemoth received an $85 million tax-incentive package to relocate its corporate headquarters from New Jersey to Estero, south of Fort Myers. Hertz committed to creating 700 jobs as part of the deal, but Edwards said the most recent information she could find was from March 2016. Three years into the arrangement, Hertz had created 150 jobs.Edwards said it’s not enough to “issue a press release, and say, ‘Yeah, this is wonderful.’”But the only Democratic lawmaker on the Appropriations Committee to vote in favor of killing Enterprise Florida and cutting Visit Florida’s spending by 67 percent on Tuesday was Minority Leader Cruz.“In my family, there were consequences for bad behavior. It was usually a pretty good size whoopin’,” the Tampa Democrat said.Peeling away DemocratsThe GOP-controlled legislature is mostly divided into two camps regarding Enterprise Florida and Visit Florida.The free-market side is headed by Corcoran and dominates the state House. The pro-business group is led by Scott, whose backers often subscribe to the argument that if other states are awarding public funds to private business, then Florida has no other choice but to do the same if the state is going to compete.Peeling away Democrats who dislike Enterprise Florida would be a boon for the anti-incentive funding crowd heading into the 60-day formal legislative session beginning March 7.That means a focus on “corporate welfare” over “economic development.”“In my district, the average income is $39,000. There’s a woman in my district who works two jobs to barely make that,” Cruz said. “What’s happened here is that we’ve lost the confidence of Floridians and specifically many people in my district.”Rep. Carlos Trujillo, R-Miami, the House Appropriations chairman, closed his remarks with his own constituent story.“Near my district, there’s a gentleman who owns 500 gas stations. He’s paid taxes in the state for 40 years. He built his businesses from the ground up. He leveraged his own capital, took out his own loans and risked his entire livelihood. He’s never asked a single thing from the state,” Trujillo said.“Meanwhile, our state is procuring one of his competitors,” Trujillo continued. “He’s now going to be competing against a competitor who’s subsidized by his own tax dollars.”Renner closed by saying that hundreds of millions of tax dollars are going to “a privileged few,” and that it’s time to “cut up the credit card.”The next stop for the bill is the full House, which convenes March 7.

The project consists of six standard houses that are located in a built area of a total of 8010m2. The area is built in a staggered manner on a slope, giving the houses an immersive experience with the landscape.Save this picture!© Jaime NavarroSave this picture!Save this picture!© Jaime NavarroThe houses are developed in three levels: the ground floor of 169m2 with the bedrooms and the service room, the upper floor of 158m2 of which 28m2 were used for the access terrace, leaving the rest of the space to the dining room and kitchen. The top floor has 26m2 of built area and 62m2 of terrace. All these floors are accessed through the north facade and face south, habited by local plant species of the region, covering two-thirds of the lot. In this way, the contemplation of the natural terrain is prioritized over the construction on it.Save this picture!© Jaime NavarroSave this picture!© Jaime NavarroThe vertical accesses are made using concrete stairs, embedded in the red brick walls that embrace the interiors and generate a peculiar texture and rhythm due to their arrangement that seems to be a variant of typical English brickwork.Save this picture!© Jaime NavarroSave this picture!Save this picture!© Jaime NavarroThe palette of materials leans towards using warm colours and textures, playing with the use of wood both indoors and in window frames, in the wooden ceiling beams, doors, and fixtures such as cabinets.

Santander UK announces £4.5m to support university partners’ Covid-19 initiatives

first_img  563 total views,  2 views today Santander UK is to provide £4.5million of funding to its 85 university partners across the UK to support their Covid-19 initiatives.Santander, through Santander Universities, has supported higher education across the UK over the past decade with scholarships, student employability initiatives, and funding. Santander is now both repurposing and providing additional funding to support universities in alleviating the health and educational challenges caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.The support will assist universities on the front-line of carrying out medical research, providing additional protective equipment for NHS staff as well as supporting student front-line volunteers at local NHS hospitals.It will also support university emergency hardship funds which provide grants to students who require financial support for living costs or resources for the transition towards a digital learning environment. This includes IT equipment and support, such as laptops and broadband connectivity, which would normally be accessed on campus, to ensure students can continue with their studies. In addition, the funding will go towards offering support for student mental health and wellbeing.There will also be grants to support local SMEs and charities by providing fully funded virtual internship schemes for students and graduates to help businesses affected by Covid-19. Funds will also support student founders in early stage start-up businesses to remain operational in the current environment, particularly as they may not qualify for any other financial support.Matt Hutnell, Director, Santander Universities, said:“Santander is committed to supporting higher education as well as local communities across the UK so we’re pleased that our funding is able to be redirected to where it is most needed at this critical time. Universities are doing some fantastic work to contribute to the UK’s effort to combat the outbreak of COVID-19, so we’re delighted to collaborate with our university partners in a way which increases their response effort and look forward to continuing  to work with them on supporting both students and the broader higher education community with further initiatives over the coming months.”The funding comes alongside a broader set of initiatives introduced by Santander UK in response to the coronavirus outbreak to support communities. These include a £1million donation from the Santander Foundation to Age UK and Alzheimer’s Society to support some of the most vulnerable people in the community following the outbreak of Covid-19 and doubling the work time that Santander employees can claim to volunteer.

Russia: Heavy-handed raid on Dagestani newspaper

first_img Chernovik’s logo Receive email alerts June 2, 2021 Find out more Читать на русском / Read in RussianReporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns today’s raid by dozens of armed and masked police officers on Chernovik, an independent newspaper in Makhatchkala, the capital of the Caucasian republic of Dagestan, in southern Russia. The show of force began at around 10 a.m., when the police stormed into Chernovik’s headquarters, grabbed the only two journalists present and locked them in an office, and then proceeded to carry out a search without waiting for the newspaper’s lawyer or a representative of its management.When Gadzhimurad Sagitov, the editor of another independent newspaper, Novoye Delo, quickly arrived on the scene, the police told him they would smash his mobile phone if he tried to film the search.The search was carried out as part of the still ongoing investigation into Abdulmumin Gadzhiev, a Chernovik journalist held since mid-June. Because of the absence of any evidence for the initial charge of “funding terrorism,” it was changed to “inciting” the funding of terrorism.But the prospects of even this weaker charge were dealt a major blow when police experts concluded in a report submitted to investigators on 30 September that the 2013 interview previously cited as evidence contained no evidence to support it.“Everything indicates that the security services are going all out to rescue an investigation whose last prop had just collapsed,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “This heavy-handed raid has seriously compromised the confidentiality of Chernovik’s sources and its ability to successfully conduct sensitive investigations. It also sends a very clear chilling message to all the media, which have rallied with unusual energy in support of Abdulmumin Gadzhiev. The local and federal authorities must immediately announce an end to this unacceptable witchhunt.”One of Dagestan’s most popular newspapers, Chernovik is a frequent target of harassment. It was charged with colluding with terrorism for three years, until 2011, when it was finally acquitted. Its founder, Khadzhimurad Kamalov, was gunned down a few months later.Russia is ranked 149th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index.

Designed for professionals but also for the use of anyone interested in freedom of expression www.damocles.org carries basic texts that guarantee press freedom along with extracts from codes of ethics. The site also offers publications that can be downloaded like the Practical Guide for Journalists and the Charter for the Safety of Journalists working in War Zones or Dangerous Areas.An “International Justice” section offers a Guide to the International Criminal Court for the use of victims (In English, French and Spanish) and advises on legal procedures to put together a case for anyone who is a victim of an international crime (“How to bring a case”).Freelance journalists covering foreign stories will find practical information on low cost insurance policies and the loan of flak jackets from Reporters Without Borders.Documents on workshops organised by the Damocles Network can also be viewed and downloaded.The Damocles Network was set up in December 2001, as a result of alarming figures: Nearly 500 journalists had been killed, murdered or gone missing because of their work over the past ten years. A large number of these crimes had gone unpunished, either for lack of serious investigation, financial means or political will. The Damocles Network set out to operate at all levels, in close co-operation with Reporters Without Borders, to put an end to impunity for those who murder and torture journalists.The network also helps improve safety and protection of journalists. It also serves as a kind of think tank on all the issues and problems confronting the media. RSF denounces Total’s retaliation against Le Monde for Myanmar storylast_img read more
