ROCHELLE — On Tuesday, a grand opening event was held for Country Financial’s new location at 501 N. 6th St. The company moved from its previous location to the newly renovated space in April.

The insurance firm, which is co-owned by Representatives Josh Williams and Josh Messenger, was welcomed to its new space on Tuesday by Rochelle Mayor John Bearrows, Rochelle Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Tricia Herrera, and chamber, city and community members.

Herrera said the ribbon cutting was a “celebration of change and expansion.”

“We are very happy that you have chosen to stay in downtown Rochelle,” said Herrera. “Thank you guys. It’s a beautiful building. It was quite a revamp and change to this place. It’s great to have you downtown as part of the community. You guys are great supporters of things in La Rochelle and we thank you for that. On behalf of the chamber, welcome. Josh Williams is our vice-chairman of the board and is very involved in the chamber and a big supporter of it. We l thank you.”

Williams said he and Messenger had searched “high and low” for new space and were happy to find something downtown. The business didn’t have to move far, as its old location is just down the street.

Williams said the renovation of the new space was “right down to the posts”.

“We have all new windows,” Williams said. “Everything about this place is brand new. My father did all the construction work here. It’s a great location. We finally received our signage recently. We wanted to have this before the ribbon cutting. Thank you all for coming and showing your support.

Messenger said when he first walked into 501 N. 6th St., he wasn’t sure whether to buy it due to the amount of work involved.

“I’m glad it worked out and we’re here to stay now,” Messenger said. “Because we own property here and we are going to be here. And we are happy to be here.

Bearrows said he saw the building’s transformation first-hand and said Messenger and Williams did “an amazing job”.

“You’re not just locals who have a business here, but you saw the need and wanted to invest in your local community,” Bearrows said. “Investing in our community is an important issue. You are partners in business, but you have other partners in the chamber and in the city. If there is anything we can do or help in our power, we are always happy to help businesses. Congratulations and I wish you many, many years of success.”

CUSD School Board Meeting, Trustees Approve Financial Report | Coronado City News https://salonduchocolat-cannes.com/cusd-school-board-meeting-trustees-approve-financial-report-coronado-city-news/ Thu, 22 Sep 2022 00:10:00 +0000 https://salonduchocolat-cannes.com/cusd-school-board-meeting-trustees-approve-financial-report-coronado-city-news/ Coronado Unified School District (CUSD) administrators met for a regular meeting on September 15, where they approved the SACS Financial Report of Unaudited Actuals 2021-2022 and discussed various security concerns, raised by a public commentator.

Coronado Unified School District (CUSD) administrators met for a regular meeting on September 15, where they approved the SACS Financial Report of Unaudited Actuals 2021-2022 and discussed various security concerns, raised by a public commentator.

The speaker, a mother of four in CUSD schools, said she could freely roam the primary school yards and middle school cafeteria packed with students, without facing any security measures . She also alleged that first-floor classroom windows were opened due to high temperatures last week, noting that she could easily reach out and touch her own daughter’s head.

“Every day our principals, staff and teachers make the impossible choice between unbearable heat and a complete disregard for safety,” she said. “Please don’t insult me ​​by telling me that we have to keep the windows and doors open because we don’t have air conditioning and it’s too expensive to install. Let me define expensive for you. 19 dead children and two dead teachers. It’s expensive.”

All members of council responded with concern for the question, with Councilor Anderson-Cruz stating that she would be in favor of building a fence on the outside perimeter of the school. “We are thinking about it and doing our best,” she said.

Superintendent Mueller responded that the board plans to recreate the School Site Safety Parent Forum with representatives from the Coronado Police Department and Fire Department. He also noted that the Collaborative for Academic Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL) update will take place in October, providing key information updates to move forward in improving safety and tackling against the heat in the classrooms.

President Valdez-Clayton spoke about the importance of taking preventive measures to ensure the safety of students and staff. “They have a plan of who is committing these atrocities, and there are warning signs,” Valdez-Clayton said. “When you take into account these warning signs, they are able to stop 81-89% of these atrocities that occur in schools.”

Association of Coronado Teachers (ACT) President Jennifer Landry also told the board about teachers’ concerns about the recent heat wave.

“We have had [staff] members who were dizzy, dizzy, taking migraine medication daily and even vomiting from the heat,” Landry said. She said staff would like more communication about specific steps to take when temperatures rise significantly. Staff also asked for more access and transparency in the allocation of CASEL funds.

Earlier in comments from board members, Anderson-Cruz thanked teachers, administrators and students for enduring the heat, stressing the need for a solution with a timeline and target date. “I fully support finding a financially sound and humane solution,” she said, “even a short-term solution to keep our teachers and children safe. Children can’t learn when the room is so miserably hot.

Mueller also reported that the district needs to find a sustainable solution for temperature control in learning environments. “It’s not as simple as adding air conditioning and solar panels. There’s a lot of infrastructure work that needs to be done in our old buildings to support that. These discussions will take place in our district as we move closer to basic support. »

Earlier in the meeting, Assistant Superintendent Donnie Salamanca presented the SACS financial report of unaudited actuals, proposing a structurally balanced budget including a planned reduction in reserve funds, with the district’s deficit spending through 2025 in anticipation of become a basic aid district.

In a basic aid district, schools are funded by local property taxes. According to Salamanca, CUSD could implement base support as early as FY 2025-26 and through 2027-28, and is on track for a seamless transition to base support. He said the district expects to receive an estimated additional $8-10 million in ongoing incremental revenue, in addition to Local Control and Financing Formula (LCFF), once it transitions to core assistance. . Salamanca also noted the possibility that the failure of the basic aid transition will be slim to none.

The proposed financial plan minimizes program impact while maximizing student achievement and learning. According to Salamanca, CUSD is maintaining existing programs and services, many of which are expanding, in preparation for basic relief. Some of these services and programs include textbook adoption, access to current technology and reliable internet, global language opportunities, and concurrent enrollment through partnerships with community colleges.

The plan also supports staff, as 83% of the district’s budget is allocated to salaries and benefits, with employee increases rising to 8% over the next two years.

In order to promote transparency and accessibility to budgetary information, the CUSD makes available the Budget Study Committee, which will be held this month on Wednesday, September 28 at 3:30 p.m. in the Salle du Conseil.

Moving on to reports, student council member Luke Johnson gave updates from all CUSD schools. According to Johnson, Village Elementary students are enjoying their World Languages ​​program while CMS Robotics Club students prepare for a team competition this week. The CHS recently organized its club rush, and students and parents now have the opportunity to start meeting with counselors about college admissions.

In public comments on items not on the agenda, a recent CHS graduate advocated for continued equity work at CUSD so students can thrive, noting that bullying and Racial harassment continues to be a problem in Coronado schools. Another speaker, a resident of Coronado, alleged that CUSD fails to provide ideological diversity within CUSD.

A speaker drew attention to a website called Coronado School Board Report, which reports on administrator activity. According to the speaker, a Coronado resident, the reports are misinformed and one-sided, and list who you should vote for before many candidates have campaigned. The website has no names attached to it.

Among other board business, trustees passed a resolution on the public hearing on the sufficiency of learning materials for 2022-2023, ensuring that every student has all the materials in required subjects they need for the school year. . Palm Academy’s biology textbooks were also adopted after a staff recommendation, along with the GANN limit resolution and final accounting for 2021-22 of Education Protection Account funds.

The next board meeting will be Thursday, October 20 at 4:00 p.m.

FLIGHT. 112, NO. September 38 – 21, 2022

Lack of technical and financial support hampers efforts to implement global guidelines on antimicrobial resistance https://salonduchocolat-cannes.com/lack-of-technical-and-financial-support-hampers-efforts-to-implement-global-guidelines-on-antimicrobial-resistance/ Tue, 20 Sep 2022 17:05:00 +0000 https://salonduchocolat-cannes.com/lack-of-technical-and-financial-support-hampers-efforts-to-implement-global-guidelines-on-antimicrobial-resistance/ Lack of technical and financial support is hampering efforts to implement global guidelines on antimicrobial resistance in Benin and Burkina Faso, new research shows.

Lack of technical and financial support is hampering efforts to implement global guidelines on antimicrobial resistance in Benin and Burkina Faso, new research shows.

The shortage of suitable infrastructure also makes it difficult to produce change and develop reliable systems to solve the major problem, according to the study.

The researchers say that global initiatives to stop antimicrobial resistance must be adaptable to take into account local economic and societal issues.

They interviewed policymakers, nurses, doctors, animal breeders, veterinarians and laboratory researchers in Benin and Burkina Faso, who said changes in antibiotic use would compromise health and economic livelihoods of the people.

Farmers reported that official dosing regimens and recommendations were difficult to follow as they would lead to significant financial losses, jeopardizing the viability of businesses and the food supply of local communities. Nurses prioritized the provision of care and treatment by prescribing antibiotics without key tests and examinations, since patients could not afford them financially and very often hospitals did not have the necessary infrastructure. to perform them.

The study argues that global guidelines from organizations such as the World Health Organization are harder to implement for poorer countries. There is less surveillance data to inform veterinary or clinical decision making.

The research, published in the journal mSystems, was conducted by Salla Sariola and Andrea Butcher from the University of Helsinki, Jose Cañada from the University of Exeter, Mariette Aïkpé from the University of Abomey-Calavi and Adélaïde Compaore of the Institute for Research in Health Sciences.

The study illustrates how tackling individual behavior through increased awareness without addressing the lack of infrastructure is not an effective way to reduce antimicrobial resistance.

The article explains “that tackling the problem of RAM spreading is not something that can be fixed with a particular ‘technofix’. Interventions must respond to local needs, hotspots, determinants and circumstances that give rise to antibiotic use.

Both Benin and Burkina Faso lack strong surveillance and evaluation mechanisms and did not participate in the WHO Global Antimicrobial Resistance and Use Surveillance System (GLASS) database. WHO. Sanitation and health care infrastructure, where it exists, is poorly developed. Worrying levels of RAM have been found in clinical, animal and environmental samples in both countries.

Dr Canada said: “Policy makers and experts have said that awareness of antimicrobial resistance among members of the public is low. Those who relied on antibiotics for their profession, such as pharmacists, farmers, farm managers, veterinarians, doctors and nurses, disputed that there was a lack of awareness of the need to reduce the use of antibiotics. Yet, on many occasions, they continued to prescribe and use antibiotics contrary to their best knowledge due to lack of access to diagnostic tools.

Both countries are members of the West African Economic and Monetary Union. Member States are bound by Union legislation governing the import, distribution and sale of clinical and veterinary medicinal products. In practice, antibiotics can be purchased without a prescription for human and animal use, although the informal sale of pharmaceuticals has been banned in Benin since February 2017.

The most representative data from Burkina Faso on the use of antibiotics suggest widespread informal use: 40% of patients coming to the hospital had already taken antibiotics, of which 16% had taken more than two different types of antibiotics. Among the antibiotics used, 40% were those that the WHO defines as the most crucial to secure.

In both countries, antibiotics are sold and prescribed by various front-line health care providers. Nurses prescribe antibiotics, and antibiotics can be purchased directly from pharmacies and informal markets without a prescription. In Burkina Faso, sources of antibiotics for human treatment included primary health care facilities (34%), informal vendors (27%), private vendors (29%) and hospital pharmacies (12%) .

Respondents said that antimicrobial resistance activities were often short-term projects and that unstable international funding flows meant that they had to focus their energy on applying for funds rather than designing funding strategies. Implementation.

Apple Festival Grants and Preparations in Financial Approvals

New

EAST ELLIJAY, Ga. — Several financial approvals came from the Board of Education this week along with grant letters, memoranda, bonds and the monthly financial report.

With October just weeks away, the council approved a memorandum of understanding with Gilmer Chamber using its buses again this year. With an increase in the bus drivers’ hourly rate, the $56,000 deal was approved at their regular meeting. Biggest event of the year in Gilmer County, buses typically run between multiple locations including downtown for Apple Arts, Apple Festival attendance event, school parking lot for visitors of the festival and the festival grounds themselves.

The council moved on to grant applications for the College and Career Academy at the Larry Walker Education Center. In support of a $3 million grant for the College and Career Academy, a requirement was imposed to include a letter of support from the school board. The board recently approved the transfer of teaching units in July to bring it in line with the transfer and phase-out of buildings to put state credit revenues where they belong.

The 2022 Bond Bus Approval and September Monthly Financial Report supplemented the meeting’s financial approvals as well as procurement policy information, including additional GHS weightings. Board member Joe Pflueger asked about the purchase after the board spent $40,000 in June on new high school weights. The purchase was made to replace broken weights as well as 3 additional weight stations due to the high volume of students using and waiting at the original stations. With the three additional stations, a total of nine are now in use at the high school.

The purchases also include $12,000 for school system inspections as the board seeks to recover from a recent lightning strike that damaged the main administration building and highlighted the need to add or replace generators in the system.

Recommendations included implementing universal clearing of all Treasury transactions and repos, establishing regulatory carve-outs from regulatory leverage ratios to allow dealers to store more bonds on their books and the establishment of permanent repo operations at the Federal Reserve.

Although most of the report’s recommendations have not yet been implemented, the Fed implemented permanent repo facilities for domestic and foreign brokers in July 2021. And the Securities and Exchange Commission is taking steps to make mandatory more centralized clearing.

However, in an update on the situation released earlier this year, the task force said the Fed facilities had not gone far enough.

On Wednesday, the Securities and Exchange Commission is preparing to announce that it will propose rules to help reform the way Treasuries are traded and cleared, including ensuring that more Treasury trades are cleared centrally. , as the Group of 30 recommended, as reported by MarketWatch.

See: SEC poised to advance reforms to avert next crisis in $24 trillion market for U.S. government debt

As noted by the Group of 30, SEC Chairman Gary Gensler expressed support for the expansion of centralized Treasury bill clearing, which would help improve liquidity in times of crisis by helping to ensure that all transactions settle on time without any hitches.

Still, if regulators seem complacent about these risks, it’s likely because they expect that if something goes wrong, the Fed can simply step in to the rescue, as it has done in the past. .

But Bank of America’s Axel thinks that assumption is wrong.

“It is not structurally sound that US public debt becomes increasingly dependent on Fed QE. The Fed is a lender of last resort to the banking system, not the federal government,” Axel wrote.

LexisNexis Risk Solutions’ 2022 Financial Transparency and Inclusion Report showed strong interest in financial transparency and inclusion.

LexisNexis Risk Solutions and research and advisory firm Celent designed the Financial Transparency and Inclusion Survey. The online survey was conducted in late 2021 and received 297 complete responses worldwide from management and other senior executives responsible for compliance, retail and commercial areas.

The survey of banks, insurers and non-bank financial institutions in 13 countries and regions aims to better understand the commitment of financial institutions to financial transparency and financial inclusion and the challenges they face in achieve these goals.

Financial inclusion is a global issue. According to the World Bank, there are 1.4 billion unbanked people worldwide and the financial services industry faces challenges in reducing this number. Many factors affect financial inclusion; poverty, a thin credit history, living in a cash-based society, a history of bad debts and/or a lack of financial education can all impede access to financial services.

There are obvious opportunities to overcome some of these obstacles. For example, global efforts to increase inclusive access to trusted ID systems and mobile phones could be leveraged to increase account ownership for hard-to-reach populations.

Banking the uncooked population

One of the ways to convert the unbanked into banked customers is to improve financial transparency. Financial institutions must be able to identify consumers and understand their risk profiles, both to maintain regulatory compliance and to support the extension of consumer financial services. The more institutions understand consumers, the easier it is to provide appropriate financial services. However, 69% of respondents agree that unbanked or underbanked people are more difficult to onboard than other types of customers and businesses due to lack of data.

Many financial institutions are turning away significant numbers of potential customers due to current Know Your Customer (KYC) processes. The most challenging customer onboarding barriers that institutions face are difficulties in collecting and verifying customer information. However, interest in sharing data to support KYC processes is growing. Nearly 80% of financial institutions express interest in a global customer due diligence (CDD) service, up from just over 70% in 2019.

The report finds that financial institutions can do more to achieve greater transparency, as indicated by the 64% of respondents who say identity verification is a challenge when onboarding people.

Results of the COVID-19 pandemic

The pandemic has posed a challenge to financial crime and financial institution compliance operations, with large numbers of applicants applying for government assistance loans and financial institutions unable to verify identities in person due to shutdowns. However, it has also led financial institutions to adopt more digital practices, with 90% of institutions reporting that the pandemic has accelerated the adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) and other next-generation technologies.

The countries expressing the most agreement that the pandemic has accelerated the adoption of digital technologies are India, Indonesia and Mexico. In Singapore, the US and the UK, where digital adoption is already high, fewer companies see the pandemic as the driver.

According to World Bank data, in 2021, 18% of adults in developing economies paid their utility bills directly from an account. About a third of these adults did so for the first time after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The share of adults making a digital merchant payment has also increased after the COVID-19 outbreak.

BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) — President Biden has bragged about signing the Cut Inflation Act, saying it would help bring inflation down.

“The inflation we are experiencing today is simply the result of $4 trillion of excess money being printed and flooded into the market. And now the chickens are coming home to roost,” said Fred Dent, Chartered Financial Analyst.

“You could have politicians on either side arguing the pros and cons. But if we look at the Congressional Budget Office, the nonpartisan organization, they say the deficit reduction, the minimal benefits, the actual reduction in inflation, is negligible,” Dent said.

Although gasoline prices have remained somewhat stable, they are still higher than they were before 2020. And at the same time, prices continue to rise.

“And that’s the part that bothers a lot of economists because these things are less volatile and more sticky over time and that means it could stick around a little longer,” Dent added.

And Republicans in Washington waste no time in pointing fingers.

“I don’t think Americans buy it. They are paying 11.4% more for food than last year, 15.8% for electricity compared to last year and the rent has increased by 6.7% compared to last year” , said Sen. Bill Cassidy (R).

Senator Cassidy says those who will continue to suffer the most are those who live paycheck to paycheck. And that number keeps growing.

“They see the paycheck they take home not going as far as it can. They see the value of their 401K going down as the stock market goes down,” Senator Cassidy continued.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics released data yesterday showing that inflation cooled slightly in July and August, but remains elevated. Fred Dent says when it comes to your money, you shouldn’t panic and stay the course with your investments. Add sooner or later all this should pass.

Ukraine still faces “a tough fight” after Russia gave up most of the territory it had taken near Kharkiv, the United States said, after a lightning counteroffensive that forced many retreating troops to leave the country.

A senior military official said on Monday that Russian forces “have largely given up their gains” around Ukraine’s second-largest city and “have withdrawn to the north and east”, adding that “many of these forces have crossed the border with Russia”. Kyiv claims that 6,000 km2 of territory has been “vacated”.

The US official also said reports that troops in Moscow abandoned equipment as they retreated “could be indicative of Russia’s disorganized command and control.”

However, the official warned that the rapid advances of the Ukrainian counteroffensive had not fundamentally changed the short-term outlook on the battlefield, a cautious message also sent by other senior US administration officials.

“It continues to be a tough fight for Ukrainians,” the official said. “Our goal will be to continue to work closely with Ukrainians and the international community to provide them with the support they need as they repel the Russian invaders.”

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said while Ukrainian forces had made “significant progress” in their counteroffensive, particularly in the northeast, it was “too early to say exactly where it is going”. .

Speaking at a press conference in Mexico City, he said Russia was continuing to invest resources in the war.

“The Russians maintain very large forces in Ukraine, as well as equipment, weapons and ammunition,” Blinken said. “They continue to use it indiscriminately not only against the Ukrainian Armed Forces, but also against civilians and civilian infrastructure.”

Some Western officials have been emboldened by Ukraine’s progress, saying recent advances have strengthened the case for NATO nations and partners to provide it with lethal aid.

A senior US defense official said Washington and its allies were discussing Ukraine’s longer-term needs, such as air defenses, and whether it might be appropriate to donate fighter jets to Kyiv at “medium long-term”. To date, the United States and its allies have refused to do so.

Ukrainian military officials said in recent days they had taken more than 3,000 square kilometers of ground in what has become Moscow’s biggest military setback since it was forced to abandon plans to conquer Kyiv. But late Monday night, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy all but doubled down on those demands as Ukrainian forces continued to advance.

“From the beginning of September until today, our soldiers have already liberated more than 6,000 km2 of Ukrainian territory – in the east and in the south,” he said. “The movement of our troops continues.”

Officials and analysts predict Ukraine will continue to advance, but warned Russia may be able to reclaim territory, adding they do not expect Kyiv’s progress to continue uninterrupted .

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said of the Ukrainians that it was “clear that they are fighting hard to defend their country and reclaim territory.”

She added that the White House is grateful to Congress “for the bipartisan support that has made it possible to provide Ukraine with unprecedented military, humanitarian assistance.” [and] financial aid”.

Jean-Pierre said the United States and its allies “have been working to meet Ukraine’s demand for what it needs to be successful on the battlefield – and that’s what we will continue to do. “.

The United States has already allocated much of the $40 billion aid package for Ukraine that President Joe Biden signed into law in May, a program that was to last until the end of September. The president has asked Congress for about $13 billion more in aid for the country, including lethal aid, and Washington is expected to announce another weapons package in the coming days.

The tentative assessment by U.S. officials came after the Kremlin said it would continue its invasion of Ukraine “until all initially set goals are achieved.”

The Russian Defense Ministry acknowledged that its troops retreated to the Kharkiv region, but authorities avoided calling it a retreat.

On Monday, Ukrainian troops tried to consolidate the gains made since the launch of the offensive east of Kharkiv. In Izyum, a critical logistics hub where thousands of Russian troops had been stationed, Ukrainian soldiers raised the national flag above the central district government building in the main square.

FOR KENOSHA NEWS

Johnson Financial Group will begin servicing Habitat for Humanity homeowner mortgages for free starting next month at Habitat for Humanity Kenosha to improve service quality and increase Habitat’s ability to serve more families in need of affordable housing.

Angela Elliott, executive director of Habitat Kenosha, said the partnership would be a great service to the organization, their owners and the community as a whole.

“We are absolutely delighted to offer our owners the renowned and personalized service provided by Johnson Financial Group. We are confident that their team will maintain the level of care and support that our families need while strengthening their financial stability,” said Elliott said.

For the past 10 years, Habitat Kenosha has operated as both a general contractor and mortgagor for the families served by its program, which has taken up valuable staff time. Now Habitat Kenosha can expand its operations to serve more families while retaining the mortgages served by Johnson Financial Group.

Mortgage service includes collecting mortgage payments, managing escrow accounts, paying insurance premiums and taxes, and updating homeowner statements.

“Supporting our home buyers in Kenosha is important to us,” said John Williamson, vice president and senior director of mortgage operations at Johnson Financial Group. “For more than 50 years, we have proudly served the residents of Wisconsin, building strong neighborhoods is what we do…it is our privilege. At JFG, we strive to do the best for our customers, our associates and the communities we serve.

Habitat for Humanity of Kenosha is a non-profit organization run on Christian principles. Habitat is dedicated to ending substandard housing by building, rehabilitating, and preserving homes, advocating for fair and equitable housing policies, and providing training and access to resources to help families improve their living conditions. ‘accommodation.

Vermont Business Magazine KeyBank awarded a $20,000 grant to World Learning for the Pathway to Financial Literacy program, a new initiative under World Learning’s New Vermonter Education Program (NVEP). This critical support will expand NVEP’s curriculum offerings and help World Learning ensure the long-term success of the program, which is quickly becoming a national model for refugee resettlement.

NVEP is a partnership between World Learning and School for International Training (SIT) and the Ethiopian Community Development Council (ECDC) in which refugees receive short-term housing and education in Brattleboro.

More than 100 Afghan refugees have received temporary housing and English and cultural orientation classes on the SIT campus since January, in an effort to fully integrate new Vermonters into the community. Other plans include expanding the program to new groups of refugees this fall.

“On behalf of World Learning, I am thrilled to take this next step to grow our partnership with KeyBank through this critical support of our programming for new Vermonters settling in Brattleboro. We look forward to working together in a community where both our institutions have deep roots,” said Carol Jenkins, CEO of World Learning.

The KeyBank grant will allow NVEP to expand its English language learning program to include basic financial literacy training tailored to the needs, backgrounds and experiences of refugees. Staff from the local KeyBank branch were brought in to deliver the classes with the dual purpose of introducing refugees to more members of the Brattleboro community.

“KeyBank believes in doing its part to improve the lives of disadvantaged people in our neighborhoods through education, workforce development and community investment,” said Brigitte Ritchie, Regional Head of Corporate Responsibility at KeyBank. “As a company known for its strong culture of diversity, equity and inclusion, we welcome people of all cultures to our community and are proud to help make them successful.”
