1,256 SAFE DAYS FOR ALL AT BP’S LONDON HQ

first_imgTuesday 1 February 2011 8:18 pm Tags: NULL Share FULL steam ahead for the BP safety train. Following The Capitalist’s story two weeks ago about how the oil giant has been beefing up ‘elf ’n’ safety procedures in stairwell use, a source has sent in this picture (see right). Yes, that’s right, a count-down (or count-up) calendar from BP’s London HQ boasting of how many “safe days” the building has gone without a “day away from work case” – that is, an injury that has caused an absence from work. HQ workers must have felt particularly grateful for the proud safety notice during the Gulf of Mexico spill some 200 or so days ago, but it begs the question: what happened on that fateful date, 1,257 days ago?We called our helpful safety captain at the BP press office for a briefing. “The point of putting that sign in this building… is that we have the same philosophy, the same rules of safety here as in our operational buildings,” he said solemnly. (Hmm… so perhaps the sign wasn’t such a comfort last May after all).As for the timeline, it turns out it marks the very day the sign itself was hung safely on the wall.And pending any improper use of the bannisters, methane gas bubbles (of the earthly, not human, variety), and angry invasions from the firm’s Russian partners, one sure fact is that you can set your calendar by BP’s “safe days” signage. PUT IT ON HRM’S TABEyebrows have been raised after disgraced expenses MP David Chaytor left Wandsworth prison for the low security Spring Hill jail after just two weeks. Perhaps the disgraced MP will make the most of his time at the open prison, where inmates are free to come and go as they please, providing they’re back by a 10pm curfew. According to the HM Prison Service website, prisoners can take advantage of a number of training courses. Given his false claims for “IT support services” in May 2006 when the “services had not been provided or charged for”, perhaps the classes in computer studies would be worthwhile.We’re sure the former Labour MP for Bury will find the new accommodation more amenable. Rooms are equipped with the kinds of facilities that can’t be found in budget hotel chains like Travelodge, including a mini-fridge, TV and Sony PlayStation. If that’s too dull, there’s always the on-site sports centre, with its soft-tennis courts.ROYAL FLUTTERGood news for anyone sharing a first name with the happy royal couple. Epsom Downs Racecourse is holding a special royal wedding celebration day on 20 April, when the first Investec Derby trial takes place, giving free entry to anyone with the first name “William”, “Kate” or “Catherine”. But there’s no faking it: the offer requires official photo ID.The day promises to be a great preview of the Investec Derby Festival itself, for which City A.M. is the official newspaper partner. It’s happening at Epsom 3-4 June.GLAMOUR SIXAnd finally, a sneak preview of Glamour’s power list for 2010. The magazine names 35 over-achieving women under 35 every year for including in its “power list”, with six in the “business and law” category. This year’s six feature four entrepreneurs – Holly Tucker, Jessica Grosvenor, Jessica Huie and Nik Done – a solicitor (Lisa Morgan) and the head of a showbiz agency (Suzie Norton). The list shows there’s plenty of female talent in the pipeline when it comes to rebalancing that pesky male dominance of company boards.

Ukrainian lawmakers introduce bills to set gambling taxes

first_img29th January 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle Email Address Tags: Online Gambling Legal & compliance Ukrainian lawmakers introduce bills to set gambling taxes AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Ukrainian legislators have submitted three bills to establish tax rates for gambling in the country if it becomes legal. Regions: Europe Central and Eastern Europe Ukraine Topics: Legal & compliance Lottery Sports betting Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Ukrainian legislators have submitted three bills to establish tax rates for gambling in the country if it becomes legal.If any of the three bills are passed, it would come into effect alongside Oleg Marusyak’s bill to allow gambling, which passed its first reading in the Rada with 260 out of a possible 450 votes.A bill jointly submitted by Marusyak and Marian Zablotskyi, Bill 2713, sets the tax rate for all gambling and lotteries at 25%.An alternative – 2713-1, submitted by Dmytro Natalukha – proposes a 7.5% GGR tax rate from bookmaking, 12.5% from online gambling and 22% from lotteries.The bill 2713-2, put forward by Oleksandr Dubinsky, would establish a 25% GGR tax rate for all forms of gambling: online, land-based and lotteries.Currently, all three bills are being considered by the Committee on Finance, Tax and Customs Policy.Marusyak’s bill to legalise gambling includes a UAH6.7m (£212,800/€249,500/$277,300) licence fee as well as a fee of UAH41.7m for casinos in hotels with 200-250 rooms and a fee of UAH62.6m for casinos in hotels with 250 or more rooms. These licence fees will track the country’s minimum wage to adjust for inflation.The bill would determine bookmaking licences through a system where each licensee would have the rights to open 5 bookmaking shops. 32 bookmaking licences would be available in Kyiv, 16 between Ukraine’s other large cities of Odes and Kharkov and a further 32 in the rest of the country.The number of gambling machines is limited to 40,000 and players must be 21 to gamble, an increase from 18, which it had been in an earlier version of the bill which did not pass when read in December.last_img read more

S.F. union: ‘Labor action needed for Flint’

first_imgThe following resolution was passed unanimously at the January membershipmeeting of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union, Local 10, based inSan Francisco.For Labor Action to Stop Flint’s Poisoned Water Crisis and Hold Michigan’s Governor AccountableWhereas, the drinking water in Flint, Mich., has been poisoned with lead ever since the decision was made more than a year ago to use the contaminated Flint River as the source of drinking water; andWhereas, it has now been revealed that Michigan’s Gov. [Rick] Snyder’s administration has known about Flint’s severe water problems for more than a year but lied to residents that the water was safe; andWhereas, the deaths and permanent long-term damage from this disaster to tens of thousands of Flint’s predominantly Black residents, especially children, is the latest tragic consequence of human rights violations that elected and appointed officials in this country have made that disproportionately affects the health and well-being of Blacks; andWhereas, failure to act decisively now can only lead to more man-made, intentional public health crises;Therefore Be It Resolved that Local 10 holds Michigan Gov. Snyder accountable for the Flint disaster and calls for a federal investigation to bring criminal charges against him and that he be suspended from office immediately pending its outcome,And Be It Further Resolved that Darnell Earley, the Flint emergency manager when Flint switched its drinking water source to the poisoned Flint River water, also be a subject of federal criminal investigation, and that he be immediately removed from his position as emergency manager of Detroit Public Schools (the position to which Snyder promoted him in 2015) so that he can do no further harm to the children of Michigan;*And Finally Be It Resolved that upon approval, this motion will be taken to the San Francisco Labor Council and the California State Federation of Labor.*Editor’s note: Earley announced his resignation Feb. 2 as DPS emergency manager, effective Feb. 29.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Lxs jóvenes son la vanguardia

first_imgUna charla pronunciada por medio del seminarioweb “Los jóvenes comunistas hablan: ¿Por qué unirse a un partido revolucionario?”. Seminario web patrocinado por Workers World Party el 10 de diciembre. Scott WilliamsEstamos aquí reunidos hoy para hablar sobre la crisis que enfrentan los jóvenes trabajadores y la intensa radicalización de las generaciones más jóvenes aquí en el corazón del imperio. Está claro que los jóvenes de hoy cargan con todo el peso de un sistema capitalista en colapso. En todos los aspectos, a los jóvenes les va mucho peor que a las generaciones de sus padres. Una de las formas en que vemos esto todos los días es la guerra contra la salud mental de los jóvenes, que, según todas las estadísticas, se ha deteriorado drásticamente. Hemos visto un aumento vertiginoso de las tasas de suicidio. Las tasas de depresión son 20 veces mayores que en la época de nuestros abuelos. (tinyurl.com/y7l4lgvk)Las generaciones más jóvenes también enfrentan aumentos masivos en los trastornos de ansiedad. Todo esto es evidencia del declive objetivo del capitalismo, incluso aquí en el vientre de la bestia.Desde el 2010, la expectativa de vida en los EE.UU. ha disminuido continuamente. Las personas nacidas hoy tienen vidas más cortas que sus padres.El veinticuatro por ciento de los jóvenes de 21 años se encuentran por debajo de la línea de pobreza federal de ganar $12.760 por año. (healthcare.gov). Esto no incluye a los estudiantes de tiempo completo.El desempleo juvenil alcanzó un récord del 27 por ciento en Estados Unidos la primavera pasada. Los trabajadores de raza negra en Estados Unidos enfrentan el doble de desempleo en comparación con los de raza blanca. A nivel mundial, según la Organización Internacional del Trabajo de las Naciones Unidas, el porcentaje de jóvenes que forman parte de la fuerza laboral sigue disminuyendo y los trabajadores jóvenes se enfrentan a una creciente precariedad en todos los aspectos de la vida.Somos los millones de trabajadores de curros, trabajadores de restaurantes despedidos y minoristas, conductores de Uber, trabajadores temporales y subempleados crónicos, especialmente ahora durante la pandemia. Cabe preguntarse si alguna vez volveremos a tener un empleo pleno. Los trabajos de los jóvenes son los que tienen más probabilidades de automatizarse y deshabilitarlos.Nuestros salarios son más de un 50 por ciento más bajos que los de las personas de entre 40 y 50 años y esta disparidad sigue aumentando. (brookings.edu) El cincuenta y dos por ciento de las personas de entre 18 y 29 años viven con sus padres debido a la pandemia. (pewresearch.org) Tenemos $1,6 billones en deuda estudiantil, que asciende a $29.200 por joven. (forbes.com). Personalmente, tengo muchas más deudas que eso.Mientras tanto, julio fue el mes más mortífero para los jóvenes en la historia moderna, ya que la pandemia y otras crisis matan a miles de jóvenes.Los capitalistas no tienen sueños, ningún futuro nos depara. Las empresas de construcción de prisiones planean construir nuevas prisiones en las ciudades, basándose en los resultados de las pruebas de tercer grado de los que abandonaron la escuela secundaria. Muchos jóvenes, especialmente las personas de color, tienen más probabilidades de ser arrestados por la policía y encarcelados que de ir a la universidad.En conjunto, el capitalismo está librando una guerra contra los jóvenes. Los jóvenes de nacionalidades oprimidas, géneros oprimidos, jóvenes de la clase trabajadora, todos enfrentan los mayores impactos de un sistema que no tiene futuro para ellos.¿Cual es la solución? Las leyes del marxismo muestran que la intensificación de la opresión y la explotación por parte de una clase de multimillonarios cada vez más desesperada se convertirá en su opuesto, en una revolución. Muchos jóvenes pequeño burgueses y jóvenes de entornos más ricos han sido empujados hacia abajo socialmente. Hemos sobrevivido a dos crisis económicas que han sido las más grandes que se recuerdan recientemente. Vivimos una pandemia que es el resultado total del capitalismo.Sin embargo, rápidamente nos hemos convertido en una generación de resistencia. Comenzamos a ocupar los centros de las ciudades en todo el mundo al final de la última crisis económica: el movimiento Occupy. Desde entonces, los trabajadores jóvenes han encendido importantes luchas contra la brutalidad policial racista, contra la guerra del capitalismo en el planeta y contra la austeridad, los recortes y la creciente amenaza del fascismo en todo el mundo. Los jóvenes han estado a la cabeza. Estudiamos historia para entender cómo cambiar el futuro. Los jóvenes, a lo largo de la historia, han sido la vanguardia de los movimientos revolucionarios. Che Guevara tenía 30 años en el momento de la Revolución Cubana. Fidel tenía 32 años. Mao tenía 26 años cuando se fundó el Partido Comunista Chino. Revolucionarios como Mumia Abu-Jamal y Fred Hampton organizaron ramas de las Panteras Negras cuando eran adolescentes. Aquí, en el centro del imperialismo y el capitalismo, los jóvenes están marcando el camino.

Pasadena Awarded Grant for 2015 Summer, Afterschool Meal Programs

first_img The City’s Human Services and Recreation Department received a $50,000 grant from the National League of Cities (NLC) to streamline afterschool and summer meal programs for Pasadena-area children. The department will also receive customized technical assistance, access to best practices and national experts, and opportunities for peer learning.Pasadena is among 13 cities receiving grants ranging from $30,000 to $50,000 because of a continued commitment to combatting childhood hunger through year-round meal programs.Fourteen percent of Pasadena residents live below the federal poverty level. During the 2013-14 school year, 68 percent of Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) students were approved for free and reduced meal benefits, according to PUSD. The grant funding will help the City, PUSD and community partners achieve the long-term goals of creating a coordinated, citywide system for providing child nutrition programs; reducing the lunch-to-breakfast meal gap; and increasing awareness of the citywide child nutrition program.“This opportunity aligns with the strategies in our school-city-community work plan to continue offering services that improve student outcomes and foster innovation in Pasadena,” said Mercy Santoro, Director, Human Services and Recreation Department.“The grant will help improve participation in our nutrition programs while also allowing us to brand various community-based meal programs under one name.”Starting in December 2014, the Human Services and Recreation Department will begin meeting with community partners, identifying and creating a database of existing resources, assessing community needs and creating a work plan for the grant cycle.The CHAMPS grant is part of the National League of Cities’ Institute for Youth, Education & Families’ initiative: Cities Combating Hunger Through Afterschool and Summer Meal Programs. CHAMPS is made possible by a grant from the Wal-Mart Foundation and in partnership with the Food Research and Action Center. The grant funding has helped supply 7.5 million meals during the last 2.5 years.Stay connected to the City of Pasadena!

Odessa woman starts GoFundMe for immigration case

first_img Magali Thomas has lived in the U.S. since she was 6 years old, and thought, since she was adopted by her stepfather at 13, she was a U.S. citizen as well.So when she went to the DMV to renew her expired license, it came as a surprise to her to find out she was considered undocumented.What was the reasoning behind this? Thomas had a social security card, adoption papers, a high school diploma, but she didn’t have a citizenship certificate, which the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services building in El Paso said she needed.So Thomas applied for her certificate, but to her surprise, her first application was denied. Apparently, she did not have enough information on her father’s citizenship, but Thomas said she was told she wouldn’t need that info during her first time applying. Magali “Meg” Thomas looks through her legal paperwork. She is trying to raise money to hire a lawyer to get her American Citizenship. She was talking to visitors in her boyfriend’s Odessa home Thursday, February 22, 2018. Magali “Meg” Thomas looks through her legal paperwork. She is trying to raise money to hire a lawyer to get her American Citizenship. She was talking to visitors in her boyfriend’s Odessa home Thursday, February 22, 2018. Her mother Ruth Hoffman stands in the background. Home Local News Odessa woman starts GoFundMe for immigration case Local News Odessa woman starts GoFundMe for immigration case Pinterest Without a citizenship certification, Thomas couldn’t get a license, which means she couldn’t drive. Without a license, Thomas had to quit her job, and has been unemployed for the past two years.Now she’s hiring a lawyer to ensure her citizenship is secured. The only problem for her is the method of paying for it, which is why she set up a GoFundMe campaign to help pay her legal fees and allow her to work and live in the U.S. again.“I’m scared, because where do I go if I get denied again?” Thomas said. “I’ve been here since I was 6. I don’t know anything else.”Thomas was born in Montreal before immigrating to the U.S., but she doesn’t speak French anymore, and she doesn’t know anyone in Montreal outside of a few aunts.Since Thomas was first denied a year ago, she’s spent her time gathering information, records and documents to help her case. She carries around a large pink bag filled to the brim with papers: Her father’s birth certificate, her parent’s work history, along with her adoption papers and old ID cards. Thomas even had to try to get her father’s high school diploma. He graduated in the ‘50s, she said.The DPS website shows proof of U.S. citizenship, or evidence of lawful residence, is required to be given a driver’s license. So Thomas was confused as to why this problem had never come up before when she acquired driver’s licenses in Colorado, New Mexico and Georgia.Kathryn Midkiff, a paralegal with Borland & Borland in Midland who is helping with the case, said the immigration office messed up when they denied her citizenship because they only considered one possibility of qualifying for citizenship: The Child Citizenship Act, which grants citizenship to all foreign-born, biological and adopted children of U.S. citizens. But because she was over 18 when it was passed in 2000, Thomas said she did not apply to that act.However, at 42, using charts to see which immigration laws were in place when she was born, the law would just require that she prove her father was a U.S. citizen and had lived in the U.S. for at least 10 years before she was born, which her father was.“Immigration doesn’t mess up that often,” Midkiff said. “I’m not sure why they only considered one way, because as far as Mr. Borland can tell, she is eligible the other way using the charts.”The GoFundMe campaign for Thomas has been up since Feb. 12, and is seeking a goal of $2,500 to pay for her legal fees.Thomas isn’t worried about being deported any time soon. Her lawyer told her as long as she stayed on the good side of the law she should be fine. But she said it’s frustrating for her to not be able to drive or work. She couldn’t even get a work permit granted while she tries to get a citizenship certificate or any form of identification, she said.“So if I get in a car wreck right now, I’m just another Jane Doe?” Thomas said.GoFundMeTo see Thomas’ page, click here Facebook Twitter By admin – February 26, 2018 WhatsApp Facebook Previous articleECTOR COUNTY FELONY DISPOSITIONS Feb. 26, 2018Next articleGOOD NEWS: Poems and Reflections admin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORcenter_img WhatsApp 1 of 4 2021 SCHOOL HONORS: Permian High School Pinterest Magali “Meg” Thomas is trying to raise money to hire a lawyer to get her American Citizenship.
