He can be reached at [email protected] The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago On Thursday, HUD Secretary Dr. Ben Carson announced new measures to protect the financial integrity of the department.”We simply need to do better. An updated system of internal controls will provide our agency with greater certainty that the dollars we spend are spent in a manner that satisfies all laws and regulations, and most importantly, the American people. We will approach this as any business would by increasing transparency and accountability. In the end, we will also support a culture that respects the fact that HUD funds belong to the public,” said Carson.According to Carson, these changes will work toward correcting lax internal processes and controls and the Department. Carson tasked HUD’s newly appointed CFO, Irving Dennis, to put together a plan and an internal task force focused on combating waste, fraud, and abuse.A former partner at Ernst & Young, Dennis said, “I’m excited to apply a business acumen to a task that is necessary for us as an agency. These new internal controls and management practices must be embedded into our organization to help prevent misuse and misappropriation of assets. The goal is to create more robust processes and systems of checks and balances to ensure our expenditures not only meet all of our requirements but pass a common sense ‘smell test.’”HUD’s media statement breaks down the proposed changes into four areas of focus:Agency-wide Governance: Implementing an Agency-wide governance structure that allows for more oversight, transparency, monitoring, and accountability;Finance Transformation: Developing a plan to restore discipline and accountability in the financial and reporting systems across the Agency.Grant Modernization: Developing a holistic grant modernization plan to improve grant processes and reporting, including improved IT systems.Process Improvement: Promoting a HUD culture focused on documented and repeatable process with a focus on transparency and cost reasonableness.HUD’s media statement also notes that the Office of the CFO is working with HUD’s  Office of the General Counsel to review processes throughout the department “to ensure HUD is within all guidelines and utilizing resources effectively.” Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago HUD’s Carson: “We Simply Need to Do Better.” Previous: Delinquencies on the Decline Next: Facilitating Growth in a Changing Industry Landscape in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Journal, News  Print This Post Sign up for DS News Daily Ben Carson Department of Housing and Urban Development HUD Irving Dennis 2018-03-15 David Whartoncenter_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Related Articles Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Share Save Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Subscribe About Author: David Wharton Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / HUD’s Carson: “We Simply Need to Do Better.” Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days agolast_img read more

Delhi Allocated Less Oxygen Than Demanded Quantity Than Other States In Covid-19 Fight: Delhi Govt Tells High Court

first_imgNews UpdatesDelhi Allocated Less Oxygen Than Demanded Quantity Than Other States In Covid-19 Fight: Delhi Govt Tells High Court Shreya Agarwal29 April 2021 1:44 AMShare This – xDelhi Government on Thursday submitted before the Delhi High Court that Delhi has been allocated less oxygen than demanded quantity than other states to fight the current Covid19 crisis.A division Bench of Justice Vipin Sanghi and Justice Rekha Palli recorded submissions of Senior Advocate Rahul Mehra appearing for the Delhi Government and has asked the Centre to respond to the same.SG Tushar Mehta objected to recording of various submissions, saying that these may not be recorded as it would raise panic, these submissions are making the discussion political. However the Court went ahead to record them and asked Mehta to reply to the points through an affidavit.”If you have the confidence in your responses, have the confidence to place it on record.” the Bench notedThe Court clarified that they are only recording it as Mr Mehra’s submissions and are giving the Centre a day to respond. It noted that the figures are government figures as of April 21st.”By no means are we interested in getting for Delhi more than what’s required at the cost of another state. However, if the submissions of Mr. Mehra are to be accepted, the Centre needs to explain the chart” the Bench clarified.While sharing a chart with figures regarding difference in allocation of oxygen by Centre to different states, Mehra shared figures of Haryana, Gujarat, Karnataka, MP and pointed out that every state got maximum 2-3% lesser than their demand.”I rest my case at that.” Mehra said.Senior Advocate Rajshekhar Rao, appointed as the Amicus Curiae also flagged the issue that Madhya Pradesh’s allocation from certain plants can be re-diverted to Delhi, instead of getting from Rourkela. He pointed out that Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh have been getting more supply than what they’ve asked for.”Of course, Maharashtra may be because it has the largest number of cases.Also, you may be making n number of beds but without oxygen they’re pointless.” Rao said.The Court then told Mehta that he needs to explain the MP situation mentioned by the amicus, where he said that MP us getting more supply than their allocation.”You will have to explain, if one state has demanded x, and other y but the other is getting more you need to explain, why?” the Bench askedMehta responded by saying that if they are being given more it is because of a surge there. Also, the Centre is doing what it can to help Delhi but they are unable to pick up the allocated amount and Centre is helping the state.SG Mehta also asked Central government officer Mr. Goyal, to explain why MP was given more supply. The Court also asked him to share the figures.Amicus Rao informed the Court that as of Apr 21, MP asked for 440 around MT, and got around 545 MT.”Almost 25% more. We are not telling you to stop or give less supply there.” Court said.Rao shared figures for Maharashtra as well, which demanded about 1500 MT, and received about 1616 MT.The Court also questioned Mr Goyal, from Centre why Delhi is out of line with MP and Maharashtra. SG Mehta responded and stated that MP’s population is 3 times more than Delhi’s, and the past 3 weeks there was a huge surge there.The Delhi High Court has been hearing the matter concerning Covid 19 situation and supply of medical oxygen in the national capital.The Court had on Wednesday told the Centre that Delhi has not been getting the amount of oxygen allocated to it by the Centre, and lives are being lost in the capital. The Bench also observed that Delhi did not the allocated quantity of oxygen even for a single day.The Court had also said that it hopes that the Central Government would lookinto the logistics problem being faced in transportation of oxygen from different plants to Delhi.Edited by Srishti OjhaTags#Delhi High Court #Oxygen Supply #Delhi Government #Quantity #COVID19 Next Storylast_img read more

Plasticity in the foraging behavior of male Southern Rockhopper Penguins (Eudyptes chrysocome) during incubation in the Falkland/Malvinas Islands

first_imgEnvironmental changes often affect the persistence of species or populations at different spatial and temporal scales. Thus, species must either adapt to these changes or experience negative impacts at the individual or population levels. Southern Rockhopper Penguins Eudyptes chrysocome are distributed throughout the Southern Ocean and have experienced substantial declines in the past which were linked to various anthropogenic and environmental factors. The aim of this study was to investigate the foraging behavior of male Southern Rockhopper Penguins at Berkeley Sound, East Falkland, Falkland/Malvinas Islands, during incubation, a period at-sea which is crucial for replenishing body condition between two extended fasting periods ashore. Thus, birds are forced to forage efficiently during that time to balance their energy demands. We linked their at-sea distribution and foraging behavior to satellite-derived sea surface temperatures and temperature-depth profiles which were recorded by devices attached to the birds. While Southern Rockhopper Penguins usually travel several hundreds of km out into the open sea on multiple-day trips during incubation, we found in our study that most birds foraged close inshore, less than 9 km away from their colony, and regularly returned to their breeding site. We propose that this behavior occurred in response to the close proximity of the 8 °C SST isotherm and the vertical stratification of the waters therein. Also, while usually feeding pelagically in open waters, there are strong indications that Southern Rockhopper Penguins performed benthic or, at least, near-bottom dives to catch their prey during these short trips. The consequences of this behavioral plasticity in response to variations in sea temperatures and inferred prey availability are discussed, especially with regard to predicted global climate change.last_img read more

First contested Union election in 5 terms

first_imgThe Oxford Union presidential election is contested for the first time in five terms, but candidates remain disproportionately male and privately educated.More than 60 per cent of candidates running at all levels have been privately educated, whilst more than 70 per cent are male.Members go to the polls to choose between Molly Greenwood, leading the ‘Reform’ slate, and Stephen Horvath, presidential candidate for the ‘Ignite’ group.Almost 79 per cent of Horvath’s slate are privately educated, while 64 per cent of ‘Reform’ candidates have received private education. In total, 20 of the 41 candidates are privately-educated men.Only 50 per cent of the eight candidates not attached to either slate have been privately educated, significantly lower than the ‘Reform’ or ‘Ignite’ percentages.Just over 46 per cent of all candidates are BME. However, 75 per cent of candidates who are not attached to a slate are BME people.In addition, only three of the 19 candidates for Standing Committee level and higher are female.In ‘Ignite’, 63.2 per cent of members are male, while 71.4 per cent of ‘Reform’ candidates are male. 87.5 per cent of unattached candidates are male.‘Reform’ presidential candidate Molly Greenwood told Cherwell: “The gender disparity in the Union and especially among the slates is very concerning to me, and I have attempted to combat it at every stage by trying to get women involved with this election.“I was conscious that the candidates were majority male, and it is a difficult issue to address in practice due to the restriction that the women I was able to approach decided not to run when it was discussed with them on this occasion.“I do hope, however, that this election will spark a greater culture of contestation and as a result, more women will feel that it is their time to get involved. I would really like to see that come out of this election.” Emily Charley, a candidate for Secretaries Committee and the only woman not attached to ‘Ignite’ or ‘Reform’ told Cherwell: “Feminism is often misinterpreted, and our society in turn ridicules female independence. I think it is this issue which regretfully discourages women from standing in Union elections in general and particularly off-slate.“Running for Union can be a stressful experience for everyone and the lack of support can be daunting; I should know, I’m running with only one other person. Women lackingconfidence to stand is not unique to the Union, and I would suggest that all societies should rally more to support female independence.”Some candidates have come together in a third group, ‘Unafraid’. This includes Musty Kamal, who is running for standing committee.He told Cherwell: “‘Unafraid’ is a slogan because we are unafraid to stand up for diversity and inclusivity, but also because members of our team have come under quite a lot of pressure to be against the two main slates.“[We] wanted to show that the Union and Oxford can represent people from a variety of backgrounds and we are unafraid to do that. I’m hoping for a fair and well foughtelection.”Last term, Cherwell revealed that just one of the senior positions within the Union, defined as Standing Committee level or higher, attended a state comprehensive school.All officer positions for the Union are contested in Friday’s election. There are 22 candidates for the eleven positions on the Secretary’s Committee, the most junior elected positions at the Union. Speaking about access at the Union, Greenwood noted: “To the best of my knowledge, only six of the fourteen members of the slate were fully privately educated, one of whom was on a bursary at the school they attended.“In regard to schooling, I believe a large part of an access problem in the Union comes down to perception – the perception that everyone else went to old and famous schools and therefore will already know everyone else.“I hope the fact that people on my slate do not fall into this category will go some way to changing that belief.”The other candidate for president, Stephen Horvath, told Cherwell: “Five out of our eleven candidates for secretary’s committee are female, and that reflects our commitment to recruiting more women to get involved in the Union, and our hope that more women will be able to run for senior positions in future terms.“When selecting candidates for the senior positions, the fact that the junior roles on this term’s committee were primarily occupied by men was a significant factor.“Despite having three sitting female officers, there were very few female members of secretary’s committee – which creates a sort of funneling problem for those looking to build a team.”Horvath also noted that he has analysed “the inequality of invitations sent over summer” and enforced a “gender invitation quota” this term.He added that the ‘Ignite’ candidate for Librarian, Genevieve Athis, organised the panel on abortion rights.Speaking about access, Horvath told Cherwell: “We’ve got a record of doing access work: I’ve done more access workshops than any other presidential candidate, Genevieve is the Christ Church Access Rep, and Shanuk is a law access mentor.“We absolutely believe the Union needs to expand its access programmes: we want to lower nomination fees for candidates to stand in elections, and we want to introduce discounted tickets to socials for access members – ensuring that access members can get the most out of their membership.”last_img read more

first_imgThis is our last issue of 2006 and I hope all of you are having a busy and prosperous Christmas period.At the National Association of Master Bakers’ conference in May, president Shirley Ryder spoke in her keynote address of the pride she and her husband, Graham, felt on 1 December when all the Christmas displays and products were ready, followed by the panicky thought: “But will they sell?” In Shirley’s case, I’m sure they are.But I hope, too, that your shop assistants are informing everyone of your Christmas treats and greeting customers with a big Christmas smile.In this week’s issue we have an article on a wonderful cakemaker, Michelle Turner, who likes to be known as Mich (pg 18). Her Christmas Tree is on the front cover. She makes cakes for everyone, ranging from HRH Prince Charles to actress Emma Thompson and the winners of Strictly Come Dancing. Her book, Spectacular Cakes, will make a good Christmas present for some of my friends, but where I fear they may just be inspired, many of you will have the talent to fulfil similar ideas.One of the new features we are introducing is Meet the Buyer – a supermarket buyer for bakery or cakes. We kick off with Drew Tiffin of Asda, who is ideally qualified because he literally swapped sides – from supplier to buyer (pg 16). If you have wondered what it takes to supply the supermarkets, then discover what Drew desires from you! What is really key is bringing new and existing products to the shop floor and, importantly, into customers’ trolleys.Also this week, we take a quick look back at the year and some of its major stories (pg 24). I am always amazed at how much news takes place in this industry – and we report it weekly!But I cannot close without mentioning the editorial team: Hayley our reporter, who has just passed her probation with flying colours; Andrew our features writer, who makes many of the most interesting visits (yes, we get jealous!); Anne our deputy editor; and Philip our art editor. And if you can’t find too many spelling mistakes that’s thanks to our part-time subeditors – Ellie and Patrick. From all of us, to all of you, a very merry Christmas!last_img read more
