Seattle mayor would support minimum wage above 15

first_imgSEATTLE — The idea of a $15 minimum wage continues to build momentum in the Seattle area, with Mayor Mike McGinn saying he would support an effort to set the standard even higher.In an interview with The Associated Press, McGinn said he thought $15 was a “fair starting point” for the minimum wage discussion. He cautioned that the issue was best handled legislatively and that the actual number would be determined by city councilmembers.“If the council proposed a higher number, I’d support that,” said McGinn, who is seeking re-election next month.He added later: “I would expect that, if re-elected, we would put together a coalition to figure out how far we could go on the minimum wage.”McGinn challenger Ed Murray recently announced that he would push for a $15 minimum wage but planned to proceed with a phased-in approach. Washington already has the nation’s highest state minimum wage at $9.19 an hour, while San Francisco is the local jurisdiction with the highest hourly standard at $10.55.The federal minimum wage is $7.25 an hour, and advocates have been pressing nationwide to push the number higher. In a small effort in the Seattle suburb of SeaTac, union-backed advocates were successful in getting a ballot measure that would raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour.last_img read more

DC Resident Steps Up to Find Citys Missing Black Kids

first_imgA Northeast Washington D.C. resident launched a project more than three years ago to help the community locate missing people. Now, the organization uses social media pages to alert the public about missing persons within the District’s eight wards.Henderson Long started an organization that uses Facebook to post the photos and information of missing Black children from Wards 7 and 8.Henderson Long, 48, is the founder of Missing and Exploited East of the River Ward 7 and 8, a Facebook page with more than 12,000 followers that allows residents to post photos and information of missing loved ones.“I have a passion for finding and locating kids and getting them back to their families,” Long told the AFRO on Apr. 18.Long was drawn to the issue of disappearing people when one of his family members went missing a few years ago. He said he realized how difficult it is to locate a missing person, especially a child. “I know the feeling so I try to get out there on the ground to help other families,” Long said.“It requires a lot of resources,” Long continued. He said he became a certified investigator and began assisting law enforcement and neighbors with solving missing person cases when he noticed that police were understaffed.There are currently 1,067 reported missing persons in D.C., according to the Metropolitan Police Department.Last year, 90 percent of the cases that the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children helped law enforcement solve involved endangered runaways.“Runaways are no different than a person who may have been abducted when you look at what they can get involved in,” Long said. He said runaways can be victims of sex trafficking, crime and abuse.Long said he would prefer for celebrities to promote the cases of girls who are actually missing in D.C. like Unique Harris, who was last seen in 2010, and not comment on misinformation like the tweet that erroneously reported that 14 Black girls went missing in a period of 24 hours. The false post did however push Mayor Muriel Bowser to create a task force for missing people in D.C. on Mar. 24.Long said he is working with the Mayor’s office on her new initiatives to increase officer staffing and publicizing missing  people, as well as assessing the root causes of children running away from home.He said he wants to “close the revolving door” on repeat runaways. “If you send them right back to the same environment they are going to run away again,” Long said.Long’s family member has runaway from home more than once and he fears for her life, “It’s heartbreaking,” he said. She is almost 18-years-old and Long said she has experienced physical abuse while being away from home.He advises parents to take precautions when it comes to protecting children. Long said parents should keep fingerprints, photographs, dental and medical records of children just in case a child is lost. These items can be helpful in locating and identifying youth.He added that parents should educate their children on their surroundings and make sure they have a good sense of direction, and memorize their home address. “More kids get lost than abducted,” Long said.last_img read more

Marvels The Offenders Brings A New Superhero Team to Hulu

first_img How many Marvel superhero teams is too many? Well between half of the Avengers being temporarily dead, and nearly all of the Defenders being actually dead as Disney drops Netflix, there’s really a void to be filled for solo superheroes stories leading to a big team up.And some surprising characters are going to be filling that void with The Offenders, a new adult animation initiative from Jeph Loeb and Marvel Television coming soon to Hulu.As with the Avengers and Defenders, The Offenders will be four separate series that lead into one big team up event. But instead of heavy-hitters like Captain America and Daredevil, these Offenders cartoons will highlight more unexpected characters, and feature more unexpected creators.The M.O.D.O.K. cartoon will follow everyone’s favorite giant evil floating head struggling to lead his henchmen and comes from writers Jordan Blum and Patton Oswalt (who we pray is also playing the lead role).Erica Rivinoja and Chelsea Handler are teaming up for Tigra & Dazzler which sees the two “woke super heroes” teaming up in L.A. for what may be the first time in any medium.Howard The Duck hopefully brings us more of the funny animal’s comic book absurdity, instead of the live-action nightmare, and features creators Kevin Smith and Dave Wills.Finally Hit Monkey is a “brutally funny revenge saga” about an assassin money with a stylish outfit, thanks Josh Gordon and Will Speck.So yeah, pretty random characters that will all eventually come together in The Offenders. The weirdness should help the comedy, which sounds like it’s going to be a bit raunchier perhaps competing with DC’s streaming Harley Quinn cartoon or that cancelled Donald Glover Deadpool project. Maybe that’s also why the shows are coming to Hulu and not the more family friendly Disney+. We just hope we’re not talking Marvel Netflix levels of sex, especially with M.O.D.O.K. involved.We also figure these characters (a giant head, tiger lady, talking monkey and duck) are easier to depict in animation rather than live-action. Howard the Duck has only had like 30 seconds of screen time across two Guardians of the Galaxy movies. And while she looks pretty normal, Dazzler is canonically a mutant. So is her appearance here secretly Marvel’s first fast fruit of the Disney+Fox merger? Hit Monkey also originated from Deadpool comics. Whatever they do, they should cast a real pop star as Dazzler’s voice. It’s not like Disney is lacking any of those.Watch out for Marvel’s The Offenders coming soon to Hulu.

Bengal in sight as part of our move to boost bilateral ties

first_imgKolkata: Vietnam is looking at Bengal as a major gateway in its stride for developing trade relations with the Eastern states of the country, Ambassador, Embassy of Vietnam in India, Ton Sinh Thanh said on Wednesday.”Vietnam has received investment of 320 billion US dollars from across the world for 25,000 projects. But investment from India has been only 1 billion US dollars for 130 projects. This is a small amount and we want things to move. We want to attract more tourists to Vietnam from India as well as Bengal,” Thanh said at an interactive session on “Bila-teral Trade between India and Vietnam: Prospects and Way Ahead” at MCCI. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsSadhan Pande , state minister for Consumer Affairs, Self Help Group and Self Employment, who was the special guest at the event, urged the Ambassador to consider making Bengal a hub for the country. “Bengal is at the crossroad of South East Asia and you can move to any Eastern state from here. So, you may consider making Bengal a hub as part of your efforts to develop relationship between the two countries,” Pande said.He added that Vietnam needs to play a more positive role in attracting tourists from the country.

Vietnam should also come in the picture of wooing tourists from here,” he added.According to the Ambassador, only 1,10,000 Indians visited Vietnam, while a little over 1 million Indians went to Thailand. Pointing out connectivity as a constraint, he said, “We are working on improving connectivity between the two countries. A direct flight from Delhi to Vietnam is going to commence in September 2018. Bengal is also very much on our radar. The Indian government is promoting a Look East policy and developing closer business ties with South East Asia and Bengal is the gateway to the Eastern states,” Thanh said.last_img read more

Fighting Fee Increases

first_img Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now This story appears in the November 2005 issue of Entrepreneur. Subscribe » 2 min read November 1, 2005 This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. Tired of the increasing costs of credit card transactions? A group of merchants have banded together to fight back with class action lawsuits charging Visa, MasterCard and other leading banks with illegally fixing prices on interchange fees.”The banks have become increasingly greedy with their fees, which is making life difficult for retailers and driving up prices for their customers,” explains Mallory Duncan, senior vice president and general counsel of the National Retail Federation. “Visa and MasterCard are essentially monopolies, and they are using their status as monopolies to increase profits at the expense of consumers.”Interchange fees–fees banks collect from retailers every time a credit card or debit card is used to pay for a purchase–first came under fire in 2003 when retailers won the right not to accept certain high-fee debit cards. In July 2005, Kroger Co. followed suit by banding with several other large retailers to charge Visa USA Inc. and Visa International Service Association with colluding on fees. And now small businesses are joining in with a suit filed by Robins, Kaplan, Miller & Ciresi LLP on behalf of five businesses in California, Connecticut and Minnesota alleging that banks violate anti-trust laws by conspiring to fix interchange rates.Duncan attributes the rash of suits to a seemingly arbitrary bump in interchange fees, which have jumped from a weighted average of 1.58 percent in 1998 to 1.75 percent in 2004, the NRF reports–an increase of 10.8 percent. “[Retailers’] costs are in the hands of a third party who has no incentive to keep them in check,” says Duncan.While quick to note that legal processes take time, Duncan is optimistic about the suit against Visa. “We’re talking about a case with $20 billion a year in fees at stake,” he notes. “This is major litigation filed by reputable attorneys with the potential to bring about real change.” Enroll Now for Freelast_img read more

Finding the Keywords Your Competitors Use

first_img 5 min read Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. In his book Ultimate Guide to Optimizing Your Website, SEO and online marketing expert Jon Rognerud shows you how to build a high-performance website and get top ranking on all search engines. In this edited excerpt, the author explains how to find out what keywords your competitors are using and how you can use that data to improve your search engine rankings.It’s important when analyzing keywords that you know which keywords your competitors use and if you’re in the proper league to either continue to use them or try for keywords that are still popular yet not used as often.Some paid keyword analyzers can tell you which competitors use which keywords, but this is often limited to what’s used for Google AdSense campaigns. A good way to determine what keywords your competitors are using is to use keyword research tools to extract keywords from their pages, and then copy and paste your selected keyword into a search engine such as Yahoo! or Google to see where they show up.An easy way to find target keywords for your competitors is to see what Google thinks they are by using the new interface to Google Keyword External tool (updated to look and act like the version supplied within Google AdWords.) The new keyword tool allows you to select languages, local search targets and more.Use these steps to discover keywords from competitor domains:Access the keyword tool and log in.Input your competitor’s web address.Review the listings, and scroll down to view all and see the collection of keywords including ad group ideas.You would pick the keywords that have (exact) search counts and that closely match your site as a starting formula. A combination of head and long-tail keywords should be included in an Excel tracking sheet. As you enter some of these keywords into Google, you’ll see varying results for paid results. These will help you understand how “commerce viable” a keyword is. The more ads, the more you can consider it to be a moneymaker. You can further input top keywords into Spyfu.com and Keywordspy.com to discover more detail, including potential paid campaigns and their resulting landing pages. This will give you a broad view of your competitor’s use of keywords, pages and overall strategy.For each of the top five sites, select keywords that seem reasonable, match your market and have search volume, and then take a look at the results that come up. Don’t worry as much about the sponsored listings, as these spots are out of your league if you have limited funds. Expand the research, and focus on the first ten direct listings of the search engine results. Ask yourself: Do these listings relate to the keyword at hand?Having the exact keyword phrase in your title helps you rank better with search engines. Additionally, you can check on the number of inbound links of these sites. Use LinkVendor to do this. If you have a Google webmaster account (you should!), your incoming links will be revealed there. Rather than simply hunting down links, however, search for quality links back to you, which are of higher priority. The search engine will return how many inbound links the website has. Make sure to select the “Except from this domain”–we want to show only external links, not links within the site.Now, what do you do with all this information, particularly if the number is high? Even if the number of inbound links is in the thousands, you don’t necessarily have to discount a keyword. In order for inbound links to be useful for search engines, they must relate to the keywords used throughout your website. For example, if you’re looking to rank well for refinancing loans yet your inbound links are for subprime mortgage loans, you’ll get a good search engine ranking for subprime mortgage loans rather than what you originally wanted, which was refinancing loans. A solid information architecture with keyword research to build out your pages will help avoid this problem. You’ll make sure that you target pages across your site, not just your homepage.You’ll get some legitimate traffic, since some subprime loans are also refinancing loans, but the traffic wouldn’t be as relevant as if you had inbound links that related directly to refinancing loans. If this is what’s happening with your competitor’s keywords, you can take advantage of it by creating a site with the appropriate inbound links.How can you determine if a competitor’s inbound links relate to the keywords used on its site? OpensiteExplorer.org will show your competitors’ anchor text and a lot more around domain authority, diversity of linking domains, which is important, and total links.A powerful tool that you can try on a 30-day free trial is Market Samurai. It provides a complete, integrated system for all online marketing efforts, and it’s a killer tool. The link analysis can show you all incoming links sorted by page rank or by anchor text use, and can easily be exported. Find out who they are, and submit for a link. You may be surprised to find out that top, or first page, listings of Google have low page rank values but extremely targeted page and anchor text matches. This is a big secret to success.You can effectively compete even if a site has a smaller number of legitimate inbound links. The key is to ensure that your links directly relate to the keywords used on your site; if your competitors don’t, you may be rewarded with top placement.

The Australian Cruise Association ACA will have

first_imgThe Australian Cruise Association (ACA) will have a truly regional presence this year at Seatrade Cruise Global, being held in Florida from13-16 March as delegates from Papua New Guinea, New Zealand and new members, New Caledonia Tourism, join the stand.Fourteen delegates will represent the Association, reflecting the continued growth of the Australian and Pacific cruise market. They include chairman Stephen Bradford, ACA CEO Jill Abel and numerous representatives from the various State Tourism Organisations, port authorities and ground handling organisations, who will showcase the Australia-Pacific region as a major world class base and destination for cruise vessels.“This has been another exciting year for our industry and our Association as we increased our membership and celebrated with our 20th anniversary conference in Sydney,” said Jill Abel.“We also released our 12th Economic Impact Report which noted growth in several significant sectors of the industry – 40 ports were visited in the last year – up from 30; 46 cruise ships visited Australia including eight new ships; and passenger and crew expenditure increased,” she said.All indicators point to this growth continuing with eight new ships slated to visit Australia in the 2016-17 season, including vessels such as the luxury Azamara Quest and Ovation of the Seas – the biggest ship to sail from Australia.  “We are looking forward to having discussions with cruise line partners around how our members guarantee that the passenger experience on shore complements the experience on board the ship so that cruising to, and around, Australia remains a number one option for international and domestic travellers,” said Abel.Abel will take part in a panel looking at the future of cruising in the region, where she will be joined by Debbie Summers from Cruise New Zealand, Jan Swartz from Princess Cruises and Gavin Smith, Royal Caribbean.Following Seatrade, a number of the Association’s STO members will travel to Seattle and LA on an educational mission meeting the cruise lines, where they will conduct itinerary and destination training for the res agents.

One in two cooperatives had no accountant former chair says

first_imgA former co-op official said on Monday that Cyprus’ political elite discouraged reforms in the co-operative banking sector because local co-ops were controlled by political parties which allowed them to operate for years without complying with minimal corporate standards.This control reflected the leverage of the political parties in local communities, said Panayiotis Philippou, a former board member and chairman of the board of directors, according to the Cyprus News Agency.Philippou was testifying before the committee appointed by Attorney-General Costas Clerides to probe the breakdown of the state-owned Cyprus Co-operative Bank into which taxpayers pumped €1.7bn in the form of two capital injections in 2014 and 2015.The co-op supervisor — until 2013 the Authority for Supervision and Development of Co-operative Societies (ASDCS) — showed leniency towards the increasing problems the co-ops were facing, he said. Co-operatives that were not operated by members of professional groups lacked strict rules while exemptions from breaking the rules were common.Philippou singled out the co-ops of Polemi, Stroumpi, Achna and Ayia Napa in particular.The problems at the co-op, he continued, could not be resolved because it was impossible to fire the secretariat or the board of a co-operative.When in 2008, 118 independent co-operative credit institutions came under the “Central Agency”, giving them a lender of last resort, most of the co-operatives had practically little if no structures to internally monitor their operations, he said.Back then, only 12 co-operatives had internal audit systems, 28 showed weaknesses, while the rest 78 had no internal audit mechanisms, he said. While 35 co-operatives were unable to produce annual accounts, 58 did not even have an accountant.Every year, the Co-operative Companies’ Audit Service included all these irregularities in its reports filed to the ASDCS and the respective minister of commerce, in charge of the co-op’s affairs, before the latter forwarded them to the parliament’s (commerce) committee, Philippou said. He added that he believed that past ministers of commerce were aware of the situation.Decisionmakers carried out a merger in 2012 to 2013 which ultimately reduced the number of co-operatives from 118 to 93, in order to cover up mismanagement, he said and named as an example the Ayia Phyla co-operative which was rocked by the revelations of a fraud case three years ago.In some cases, co-operatives even extended loans to dead persons after they were presented with forged ID cards, he said.While co-operative banks serving specific professional groups had a lower non-performing loans ratio, they were forced to merge with other co-operatives to reduce the average ratio which ultimately meant that they too fell victims to the overall mismanagement, he said.Philippou said that in 2012, when Cyprus requested an international bailout caused by a combination of undercapitalised banks, an exploding deficit and recession, and the co-ops (equity) deficit was estimated in the range of €1bn to €2.5bn, there was no willingness in the bank to put reforms forward while some were proposing promotions.Philippou said that he returned to the co-op in 2015, three years after leaving out of love for the bank and in order to contribute.Another member of the board, Gregoris Maliotis, who served from June 2010 until October 2013, also testified at the committee on Monday. He said that co-operative credit institutions operated completely independently and uncontrolled while reports prepared by the Central Co-operative Bank had no effect.According to the CNA, Maliotis said that while it was unclear who was in charge of imposing penalties in cases of irregularities, there was also a secret agreement and unwritten law of not subjecting the secretariats of the co-operatives to sanctions.When asked whether he had considered resigning in protest over his proposals concerning the introduction of audit procedures and sanction in cases of non-compliance, he said that he opted to stay and struggle.Maliotis said that serious criminal cases such as those in Ayia Napa, Stroumpi, Ayia Phyla should be directly referred to the police.He added that the Central Co-operative Bank did not have a clearly defined role to carry out audits at the cooperatives and report to the supervisor.Cooperation with the supervisor was not a two-way street and as a result it was the board that was informing the supervisor and not vice-versa he said. You May LikeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityEarthquake insurance that fits your future plansCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndo Our View: Argaka mukhtar should not act as if he owns the beachUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoThree arrested in connection with hotel theftsUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Warrenbr C firef

Warren.

C. firefighter was on his day off when he heard a call on the radio He arrived on the scene just as the first tower collapsed Hart saidHart was given a choice about whether he wanted to reach out to the family He was nervous"I didn’t want to stir up bad memories" he said Eventually he found himself writing to Howard’s mother Arlene He said he "wanted to let her and her family and friends know that we were going to be carrying on her son’s legacy” Arlene Howard wrote back immediately Hart recalled And she was heartened to know that her son’s commitment to service was living on in Hhoward"It adds a whole other element of pride – a sense of mission" Hart said of his years working with the namesake of one of the first responders who died on 9/11 "It gives me something to reflect on all the time"He said that he often shares George Howard’s story with people who stop to chat about Hhoward and their workHart has his own connection to the Sept 11 attacks He had left the military and was working for an Indianapolis-based logistics firm On Sept 11 2001 he was on an early morning flight bound for meetings in New York when somewhere over Pennsylvania the plane began to circle"We assumed it was something mechanical" he saidIt was only when the diverted flight landed at the small rural airport that Hart and his fellow passengers realized what had happened Inside the terminal people were huddled around the airport’s single television set where footage of the planes hitting the World Trade Center was playing"There was a lot of disbelief" he recalled "A lot anger It was surreal"A few hours later Hart and others would learn that the airport where they landed was not far from the field in Shanksville where United Airlines Flight 93 crashedHart remembered being glued to the television as officials tried to piece together what happened It took Hart a week before he was able to rent a car and drive back to Indianapolis which gave him a lot of time to think He was angry yes – but how he wondered could he channel his feelings in a meaningful way"The whole thing really affected me to the point where I really wanted to do something to prevent that kind of thing from happening again" Hart saidHe considered reenlisting but with two small children at home he decided to explore other optionsHe picked the TSA which he thought would allow him to help stop future attacks He began as a front-line officer part of the first class of 300 recruits who fanned out across the country to federalize airport security and train other recruits In 2011 he became a canine handlerYou might say that Hart has a way with Hhoward who had gone through two handlers before being matched with the former military policeman Other handlers had no trouble entering the kennels and slipping the collars and leashes on their dogs It took Hart 10 minutes to get one on HhowardBut after about a month the situation improved There were harsh words and maybe a little wrestling but the pair bonded"We reached an understanding" Hart recalled with a chuckleAfter all these years meeting Chris Howard was a special moment In a video of the meeting George Howard’s son jokes that Hhoward bears a striking resemblance to his fatherHart said that while visiting with Chris in New York the pair ran into a group of Port Authority Police who made Hhoward an honorary officer As proof of his membership Hhoward wears a special gray black and white Port Authority patch on his harnessAt 101/2 Hhoward is edging toward retirement But he will remain with Hart living out his days on his handler’s 30-plus-acre spread in IndianaAnd Hart has a plan for his next partner When he was visiting Chris Howard he ran into another firefighter whose father had died on Sept 11 The man asked if the TSA had a dog named after his father Hart said when he receives his next dog he plans to ask his supervisors if the canine can be re-christened in honor of the firefighter’s father It’s a small gesture Hart said but small gestures mean a lot to peopleThis article was written by Lori Aratani a reporter for The Washington PostHowever those against the law fear that it would intimidate would-be activists and squash peaceful protestsThe proposed legislation which would amend an existing law barring people from damaging "critical public service facilities utilities and pipelines" was introduced to the state House on March 12 and the Senate on March 15 The law would make anyone who "recruits trains aids advises hires counsels or conspires with or otherwise procures another to trespass" liable for any damageThe Senate version of the bill was authored by Sen Paul Utke R-Park Rapids who represents Minnesota’s District 2; District 5 Sen Justin Eichorn R-Grand Rapids was added as an author on April 9Utke said he anticipates possible protests related to the Line 3 replacement project and thinks the bill would help keep law enforcement safe"As we sit here in our district we know that there’s a big pipeline project on the table that’s being proposed with this Line 3 replacement" Utke said "We know that there’s opposition that we see when these projects take place and this bill hopefully will give law enforcement and our legal system more teeth to deal with those that are violating the law"Enbridge hopes to replace its aging Line 3 with a new line that would carry oil from Alberta Canada to Superior Wis The 1033-mile pipeline would travel through parts of northern Minnesota including land opponents say would be put at risk by the pipeline In March the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission approved an environmental review of the proposed line A state administrative law judge is set to make a decision soon on the need for the line as well as which route is best The PUC will make a final decision in June on the need and routeThe Bemidji area as well as Duluth Superior and the pipeline terminal at Clearbrook have already seen multiple protests related to pipelines which Utke said serves as an impetus for the billClearbrook arrestsIn October 2016 environmental activists Emily Johnston and Annette Klapstein were arrested and charged with felonies after tampering with pipeline valves owned by Canadian energy company Enbridge at Clearbrook Two other activists were also arrested and charged though Johnston and Klapstein say they were the ones who used bolt cutters to cut padlocks and chains at the facility A Line 3 protest in Superior in August ended with six people charged with various offensesA small protest in September at Enbridge’s Bemidji office ended with no arrests"We’ve seen people do things that are inappropriate or bad around critical infrastructure and you know that’s where this bill all starts it’s critical infrastructure" Utke
