Please enter your name here From Orange County Commissioner Bryan Nelson Last week, Orange County released its Revenue Monitoring Report for the quarter that concluded on December 31, 2017. The report provides information on the County’s 12 major revenue sources; a comparison of the current year’s actual revenues with both the current year budget and actual revenues from the year before; and contains an executive summary that highlights important information regarding the revenue sources.According to the executive summary of the report, the 12 major revenue sources represent 87.4% of the total County revenues.Orange County Commissioner Bryan NelsonCompared to the current fiscal year budget, aggregate collections were 8% (a little over $58 million) below the projections originally made, despite 9 of the 12 revenue sources have either met or exceeded their budgeted amounts. Revenue sources that were within the 5% statutory deduction and required to be budgeted were considered to have met their budgeted requirements. In addition, of the revenue that experienced increases, Public Service Taxes, Fuel Taxes, State Revenue Sharing and Solid Waste Tipping Fees experienced growth in the double digits, with interest-earning pushing them further into the triple digits.Compared to prior fiscal year revenues, aggregate collections were up to 10.7% (approximately $64 million). The County experienced increases in 9 of the top 12 revenue sources, including Ad Valorem Taxes, Solid Waste Tipping Fees, and Interest Earnings, who all increased by double digits. The other following 3 revenue sources had experienced revenue declines: Public Service Taxes (2.4%); Convention Center Operating Revenues (16.5%); and Impact Fees (32.9%).Ad Valorem Tax collections for the first quarter of Fiscal Year 2018 totaled at $394,328,919, and the total collections for the first quarter of the Fiscal Year 2017 were $338,199,462 (16.6% or $56,129,457 increase). However, this revenue source did experience a 16.1% ($75,497,251) decrease and fell short of meeting its budgeted expectations; the budget for Fiscal Year 2018 for the first quarter of Ad Valorem Taxes was $469,826,170 and the Actual Fiscal Year 2018 for the first quarter was $394,328,919. This indicates that the pace of collections is slower than what has been recently experienced, where the budget expectation is based on historical monthly receipts over the last 3 fiscal years.For the first quarter of Fiscal Year 2018, Public Service Taxes exceeded budgeted projections by 10.2% due to stronger than expected collections. Specifically, first quarter tax collections from electric service outplaced its budget by $2.6 million (approximately 15.8%), while collections from water service exceeded its budget by $267,000 (11.5%).Fuel Tax collections in the first quarter of the fiscal year exceeded budget projections by 18.3%. Current actual revenues exceeded prior year experience by 4.3%; this finding is largely attributable to the Local Option Gas Tax (representing 59.7% of the gas tax collected) and increased by 3.9% compared to the first quarter of Fiscal Year 2017 and 13.6% over the current year budget.State Revenue Sharing receipts exceeded budget projections by 10.4% and prior fiscal year first quarter receipts by 4.3%. This increase is attributable to the recalculation of amounts by the State distributed to the counties beginning July 1, 2017.Overall Impact Fee revenue failed to meet budget projections for the first quarter of Fiscal Year 2018 by 16.8%, while also falling short of prior year collections by 32.9%. This source’s failure to meet its budgeted expectations is due to Connection Fees, which comprise 57.4% of Impact Fee revenues, failing to meet its budget projection by 20.2% and its comparable prior year collections by 45.5%.Solid Waste Tipping Fee revenue for the first quarter of Fiscal Year 2018 saw a 32.9% increase over budget revenue and a 16.9% increase over prior year revenue. These increases can be credited to the continued improving economic conditions and growth in Orange County, which generates additional tonnage received at the landfill.Interest Earnings exceeded the current year budget by 174.6% and prior year collections by over 43%. These results are attributable in part to an increase of 7.8% in the average daily balance of the investment portfolio for the first quarter of Fiscal Year 2018, as well as an increase in the effective rate of return from 0.97% to 1.28% over the same time period last year.Residents seeking more information or who wish to read the full report can access it here.last_img read more

On the picket line

first_imgFedEx Freight drivers stage first strikeEighty-five FedEx Freight drivers in Gardena, Calif., the company’s major Los Angeles hub, made history Nov. 9, when they led the first unfair labor practices strike in the company’s history, after having filed charges with the National Labor Relations Board. The workers accuse FedEx of illegally interfering with their right to form a union through harassment, wrongful termination and misinformation about unions. “We’ve been trying to unionize and they do everything in their power to intimidate us,” said Greg Barfus, one of the drivers on strike. “We’re tired of them violating our rights — this is our warning to FedEx that their illegal behavior needs to stop immediately.”The drivers were joined on the picket line by over 300 Teamster supporters. “FedEx has done everything under the books to oppose workers’ right to organize. In some areas, workers have won union elections, but the company has refused to bargain,” said Randy Korgan, Teamsters Joint Council 42 organizing director, in a written statement. “We believe this action will inspire other FedEx employees to take similar actions and eventually build enough power to force FedEx’s hand. We’re in this for the long haul and this is just the beginning.”The workers vow to continue the strike through the busy holiday season unless FedEx recognizes their legal right to collectively bargain. (FOXLA.com, Nov. 9; Daily Breeze, Nov. 9)D.C. area paratransit workers win first contractThe First Transit MetroAccess drivers, who provide accessible public transportation to Washington, D.C., area residents with disabilities, scored a victory Oct. 16 when they ratified their first union contract. Previously, the workers had no formal grievance process, inadequate benefits and pay so low many needed public assistance to provide for their families.Having won representation in 2014 by Amalgamated Transit Union Local 689, the MetroAccess workers entered contract negotiations with the backing of 9,000 ATU 689 members who work for Metro Bus and Rail. The paratransit workers’ contract guarantees wage increases, paid vacations, affordable health coverage, and grievance and arbitration procedures. “This is an exciting win for all of us as these workers come closer to earning a living wage,” said ATU 689 President Jackie L. Jeter. (ATU.org, Oct. 19)Adjuncts win first contract at Md. College of ArtAfter protracted contract negotiations, adjunct faculty at the Maryland Institute College of Art ratified their first three-year contract with Service Employees Local 500 on Oct. 8. Though MICA administrators refused an across-the-board wage increase, the contract adapts the existing pay scale so 300 adjuncts can more easily advance up the scale and includes an annual cost-of-living adjustment. The agreement establishes standards for the appointment and reappointment of part-time faculty, a professional development fund and an evaluation process to foster continued excellence in teaching. All help solidify the professionalism of adjunct staff.Unionizing at MICA is part of the national movement to establish collective bargaining rights for part-time faculty at U.S. colleges and universities. This is the first bargaining unit in the greater Baltimore area, which has thousands of adjunct faculty at dozens of private and public educational institutions. (In These Times, Oct. 5)Tyson Foods lawsuit before Supreme CourtAlthough the Supreme Court is known to be hostile to class action lawsuits, it heard arguments on Nov. 10 about a wage theft lawsuit pitting Tyson Foods against about 3,000 workers at a pig-processing plant in Iowa. The first judge who heard the case allowed the workers to band together in a single lawsuit seeking overtime pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act and awarded them $6 million. The workers want to be paid for the time they spend putting on and taking off protective gear and other work-related functions. They cite an expert witness’s statistical calculations based on hundreds of videotaped observations of how long it took the workers to get ready. The Nov. 13 Huffington Post pointed out this case follows “decades of cases, court orders and [Department of Labor] investigations finding the company owes millions to its workers.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Polestar 2: Satnav and Voice Experiences Represent New Landmark in Automotive Infotainment, Finds Strategy…

first_img WhatsApp Facebook Twitter WhatsApp Polestar 2: Satnav and Voice Experiences Represent New Landmark in Automotive Infotainment, Finds Strategy Analytics Pinterest TAGS  BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 16, 2021– Strategy Analytics – A new UX evaluation from Strategy Analytics’ In-Vehicle UX (IVX) group has assessed the Polestar 2 infotainment system and relevant HMI. By implementing embedded Google-powered features with minor adjustments specifically for in-car use, Polestar 2 infotainment designers have created a new landmark in automotive infotainment. Comparable to the premium systems from Tesla and BMW, the Polestar 2 succeeds in a big way. But still, for certain crucial use cases, aesthetic concerns have been prioritized over useful design. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210216005857/en/ Press Image Polestar 2 Overall, Polestar 2’s infotainment system was ranked solidly in the top tier of all vehicles evaluated thus far in Strategy Analytics’ proprietary infotainment benchmark algorithm – a ranking system derived by how well a car’s available features correspond to Strategy Analytics’ existing data on consumer interest in advanced infotainment features. Derek Viita,Senior Analyst, IVX and report author commented,“With the expansions of Android Automotive and Google Automotive Services throughout the space, automakers have anxiously awaited the arrival of the Polestar 2 as a forerunner of things to come. And it does not disappoint: the satnav and voice experiences alone make Polestar 2 extremely formidable. Continued Viita,“But for certain in-vehicle use cases, aestheticshas been prioritized over usefulness. The log-in and authentication process necessary to unlock the full power of the Google experience, is lengthy, complex, and unlikely to be completed by those simply renting or leasing the vehicle. Touch targets and labels for some features are entirely too small for an in-car screen and Android-centric design language runs the risk of unintentionally excluding some users. And as Strategy Analytics has noted previously, though dedicated controls for defoggers are good practice, the placement of most climate controls in the touchscreen is troubling.” AddedChris Schreiner, Director IVX, “Much of the praise lavished on Polestar 2’s system is well-deserved. But clearly valuing visual appeal over real-world in-car usability is risky. If key tasks such as media source-switching are unnecessarily complex it loses appeal to the crucial tech-savvy segments Polestar is likely targeting.” About Strategy Analytics Strategy Analytics, Inc. is a global leader in supporting companies across their planning lifecycle through a range of customized market research solutions.

A bench comprising Chief Justice Raghavendra Singh Chauhan and Justice B. Vijaysen Reddy was told that there is a ” tradition” of consuming camel meat in the State during the of Bakrid, which is around the corner. The bench on Friday directed the UOI and the state to publicize the fact that the transportation and slaughtering of camels is an illegal activity, through electronic and print media. The Division Bench was hearing a PIL filed by Dr.Shashikala Kopanati which alleged that the state authorities were not taking any action to prevent the illegal transport of camels into the State of Telangana and slaughtering them contrary to the provisions of Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act 1960 and rules made thereunder. Noting that cruelty towards animals is prohibited under the Act of 1960, the bench expressed that since the transportation of camels out of Rajasthan is prohibited, it is the duty of the State to ensure that camels are not brought into the State clandestinely. Accordingly, the bench required the state to carry out inspection of licensed and unlicensed slaughter huses in the Twin Cities of Hyderabad & Secunderabad and the Ranga Reddy District, to take steps against those who are violating the laws, and to prevent the illegal killing of camels. The court was apprised on behalf of the petitioner that the Rajasthan Camel (Prohibition of Slaughter and Regulation of Temporary Migration or Export) Act, 2015 clearly prohibits the transportation of camels outside of Rajasthan. Moreover, since it is a case of committing cruelty towards a particular animal, under the provisions of Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960 and the Rules made thereunder, the respondents are duty bound to protect and promote the interests of the camel. “However, due to the laxity on the part of the respondents, the activity of slaughtering of camels during the period of Ramadan, especially of Bakrid continues unabated in the State”, recorded the bench.    Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more

The petitioner had also prayed for a stay on his arrest under the FIR during pendency of investigation in the matter. ABOUT THE FIR The FIR was filed by AMU Authorities against the petitioner after he made several remarks against the said University and its Founder in 2020. Subsequently, an FIR was lodged with the Civil Lines Police Station, Aligarh District under the following sections: • Sec. 153A of IPC: Promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, place of birth, residence etc and doing acts prejudicial to maintenance of harmony. • Sec. 153B of IPC: Imputations, assertions prejudicial to national integration. • Sec. 505(2) of IPC: Statements creating or promoting enmity, hatred or ill will between classes. According to the FIR, the petitioner had made remarks against AMU by calling it “an institution being a classroom of terrorists” and also called its founder, Sir Saiyed Ahmad Khan as a “traitor”. Therefore, it was the case of the complainant that the statements made by the petitioner were said in an attempt to promote religious disharmony and hatred between different religious communities. OBSERVATIONS OF THE COURT After perusing the FIR on record, the High Court, while dealing with the first prayer of quashing of the FIR, observed that: “The allegations prima facie discloses commission of cognizable offence and therefore, the FIR requires proper investigation and cannot be quashed at this stage.” On the second issue pertaining in the matter with regards to a stay on arrest during pendency of investigation, the bench relied on the judgment of State of Telengana v. Habib Abdullah Jellani 2017 (2) SCC 779 wherein the Supreme Court after disapproving with the HC order restraining the Investigating Agencies from arresting the accused, declined the prayer for quashing the FIR. In view of the aforesaid judgment, the bench declined to stay the arrest of the accused and dismissed the writ petition. “The writ petition is accordingly dismissed with the above observations. This is without prejudice to the right of the petitioner to seek anticipatory bail/bail, as may be maintainable or advised.” The bench ordered.
