(LONDON) Ministerial Statement Report: Nadhim Zahawi MP has been appointed as a ‘ Parliamentary Under Secretary of State ‘ at the Department of Health and Social Care #AceHealthDesk report

#AceHealthReport – Nov.28: The British government appointed a vaccines minister on Saturday as it prepares to inoculate millions of people against the coronavirus, potentially starting within days: Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Conservative lawmaker Nadhim Zahawi will oversee the country’s biggest vaccine program in decades:

Ministerial Appointment: 28 November 2020: Nadim Zahawi MP as #Covid19according to @DHSCgovuk

The U.K. medicines regulator is currently assessing two vaccines — one developed by Pfizer and BioNTech, the other by Oxford University and AstraZeneca — to see if they are safe and effective. The Guardian newspaper reported that hospitals have been told they could receive the first doses of the Pfizer shot the week of Dec. 7, if it receives approval: The U.K. says frontline health care workers and nursing home residents will be the first to be vaccinated, followed by older people, starting with those over age 80.

Britain has ordered 40 million doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, enough for 20 million people, and 100 million doses of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine: In all, the U.K. government has agreed to purchase up to 355 million doses of vaccine from seven different producers, as it prepares to vaccinate as many of the country’s 67 million people as possible: Decisions about which, if any, vaccines to authorize will be made by the independent Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency:

Pfizer and BioNTech say their vaccine is 95% effective, according to preliminary data. It must be stored at ultra-cold temperatures of around minus 70 degrees Celsius (minus 94 Fahrenheit)…………….The Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine can be stored at conventional refrigerator temperatures, and is also cheaper than its main rivals. But some scientists have questioned gaps in its reported results.

Oxford and AstraZeneca reported this week that their vaccine appeared to be 62% effective in people who received two doses, and 90% effective when volunteers were given a half dose followed by a full dose: They said the half dose was administered because of a manufacturing error, and they plan a new clinical trial to investigate the most effective dosing regimen:

The British government hopes a combination of vaccines and mass testing will end the need for restrictions on business and everyday life it imposed to curb the spread of the coronavirus. Britain has had Europe’s deadliest COVID-19 outbreak, with more than 57,000 confirmed virus-related deaths: The prime minister said this week that officials hope to inoculate “the vast majority of the people who need the most protection by Easter.” But he warned that “we must first navigate a hard winter” of restrictions:

A four-week national lockdown in England is due to end Wednesday, and will be replaced by three-tiered system of regional measures that restrict business activity, travel and socializing. The vast majority of the country is being put into the upper two tiers: Johnson faces opposition to the measures from dozens of his own Conservative Party’s lawmakers, who say the economic damage outweighs the public health benefits.

But Cabinet minister Michael Gove said the restrictions were “grimly” necessary to avoid the health system being overwhelmed this winter: Writing in The Times of London, Gove said there are currently 16,000 coronavirus patients in British hospitals, not far below the April peak of 20,000. A rise in infections would mean coronavirus patients would “displace all but emergency cases. And then even those.,” he said: ” If, however, we can keep the level of infection stable or, even better, falling, and hold out through January and February, then we can be confident that vaccination will pull the plug on the problem,” Gove wrote:

(PARIS, France.) JUST IN: Protesters throughout France have shown up for rallies against a controversial draft law on public safety, under which filming a police officer on duty may result in a hefty fine. Critics say it fosters impunity for misconduct (RT NEWS PHOTOS, VIDEOS) #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.28: The protests were organized in many large French cities, including Paris, Marseilles, Lyon, Brest and Nice, with thousands participating despite Covid-19 concerns. The main event is happening in the Place de la République in the capital:

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

The demonstrators are voicing their anger over a draft law on public security, which was approved by the lower chamber of the parliament this week: Article 24 of the bill bans filming of police officers on duty with an intention to harm them. Lawmakers who voted for the bill are among the officials who were shamed by the protesters:

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

The reasoning behind the provision, which introduces a fine of €45,000 ($53,450) or even a one-year jail term, is that members of the force need to be protected from doxxing and online harassment: Critics say it curtails journalistic freedoms and would be used to intimidate people who want to expose police brutality and other forms of misconduct:

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

The protests were organised by unions, but they have many supporters: The Yellow Vests movement, which was sparked by growing social and economic inequality and for months remained a major problem for President Emmanuel Macron, is among them:

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

There is also a component of racism in why the proposed law sparked so much anger. Police abuse of people of color became more visible thanks to the spread of mobile phones with good cameras and social media:

One such incident, which was filmed on CCTV rather than a personal device, went viral this week after the footage was leaked online: It showed French police beat and racially abuse a black man, apparently for not wearing a face mask: Police have also been slammed for their heavy-handed tactics in clearing a migrant camp in central Paris earlier this week:

(LOS ANGELES, Calif.) JUST IN: CHP Report: That at least 62 people have been arrested as police have forcibly removed homeless people from vacant state-owned homes in El Sereno officials said in a statement on Friday according to Pasadena Star-News #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.28: The conflict sparked Wednesday, when people took over several homes that had been bought by Caltrans over the years as it planned the now-defunct 710 Freeway expansion: More than 160 state-owned homes sit vacant along what was supposed to be the freeway’s corridor in El Sereno, Pasadena and South Pasadena, according to data obtained last year by the Pasadena Star-News.

KTLA https://ift.tt/33rbapc

CHP says Caltrans requested its officers’ assistance after break-ins were reported at some of the El Sereno properties Wednesday: Ultimately, 21 people were arrested across Wednesday and Thursday on suspicion of trespassing and burglary: CHP says they were escorted off the property after refusing to leave “in order to allow the uninhabitable buildings to be re-secured and boarded up for public safety.”

Silver Phoenix, who went to El Sereno to support the occupiers, called CHP’s response inhumane: ” Rather than allow the community to take that effort into housing their own people, they violently removed and extracted all these families who are now wondering where they’re going to be sleeping tonight,” she said. “It’s cold: They have nowhere else to go. There’s literally someone in our friend’s car, wondering where to go.”The large CHP response was met with a mass of protesters, and 41 people were arrested Thursday evening for alleged unlawful assembly.

All those arrested were cited and released, CHP said: Members of Reclaim and Rebuild Our Community said in a video message to Gov. Gavin Newsom posted on YouTube on Wednesday that they had “peacefully moved into several state-owned empty houses.”……………..CHP responded en masse, with officers in at least 50 vehicles packing the neighborhood to begin forcibly removing people that night:

Roberto Flores, an organizer with the group, said the families involved are homeless and have been living in cars and encampments, and looking for somewhere to shelter in place during the pandemic:

On Thursday, only Ganil Hernandez and her family remained in one of the houses: ” We’re taking back this home because we need to shelter in place and because housing is a human right,” Hernandez said: Hernandez said she and her family have been unable to pay the $2,000 rent on their apartment after her partner lost his job. She said their landlord told them they will be evicted in December: ” We can not afford rent here in Los Angeles. We tried moving out of state but we couldn’t get a place there either. I’m doing what I can for my family,” she said:

Caltrans said it has been working with local governments to lease several of its available properties for use as temporary emergency shelters: It recently signed a lease with the city of Los Angeles’ Housing Authority so that 22 vacant Caltrans-owned homes in El Sereno can be used for the city’s transitional housing program: Those homes are now legally housing families who are a part of Reclaiming Our Homes, the activist group said:

(TEHRAN, Iran.) JUST IN: ‘ The end of Israel is approaching’: Iranian Quds Force commander LEBANON (3:00 P.M.) – A 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers is being eroded and efforts t o revive the pact face a new challenge with the killing of their top nuclear scientist on Friday #AceNewsDes k report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.28: Explainer: How close is Iran to producing a nuclear bomb?The accord’s restrictions on Iran’s atomic work had one objective: to extend the “breakout time” for Tehran to produce enough fissile material for a bomb, if it decided to make one, to at least a year from about two to three months: Iran maintains that it has never sought nuclear weapons and never would: It says its nuclear work only has civilian aims: Reuters Wire News [Nov 28, 2020 at 17:39] https://t.me/reuters_news_agency/49482

Assassin of ‘ Iranian Nuclear Scientist ‘ Killed on Friday is arrested as ‘ Quds Commander ‘ says the end of Israel is approaching …..

‘ The end of Israel is approaching’: Iranian Quds Force commander LEBANON (3:00 P.M.) – The commander of the Quds Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, Ismail Ghaani, accused Israel of being behind the assassination of the prominent Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, promising that “the end of Israel is approaching.”“ The enemy does not dare to go to war like men with Iran, but the end of Israel is approaching,” the official Islamic Republic News Agency quoted Ghaani as saying about Friday’s assassination.Continue reading ‘The end of Israel is approaching’: Iranian Quds Force commander at AMN – Al-Masdar News | المصدر نيوز.https://t.me/almasdarnews1/14931 – Nov 28, 2020 at 13:41]

Tehran began breaching the deal’s curbs last year in a step-by-step response to President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the deal in May 2018 and the reimposition of U.S. sanctions: This has shortened the breakout time but reports by the U.N. International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which polices the deal, indicate that Iran is not moving ahead with its nuclear work as fast as it could:

European states have sought to save the nuclear deal, pressing Tehran to comply even as Washington has tightened sanctions, and holding out hopes of a change in U.S. policy once President-elect Joe Biden takes office on Jan. 20: Biden was part of the U.S. administration under Barack Obama that negotiated the 2015 deal.

Iran has contravened many of the deal’s restrictions but is still cooperating with the IAEA and granting inspectors access under one of the most intrusive nuclear verification regimes imposed on any nation:

  • Enriched uranium – The deal limits Iran’s stockpile of enriched uranium to 202.8 kg, a fraction of the more than eight tonnes it possessed before the deal. The limit was breached last year. The IAEA report in November put the stockpile at 2,442.9 kg:
  • Enrichment level – The deal caps the fissile purity to which Iran can refine uranium at 3.67%, far below the 20% achieved before the deal and below the weapons-grade level of 90%. Iran breached the 3.67% cap in July 2019 and the enrichment level has remained steady at up to 4.5% since then:

  • Centrifuges – The deal allows Iran to produce enriched uranium using about 5,000 first-generation IR-1 centrifuges at its underground Natanz plant, which was built to house more than 50,000. It can operate small numbers of more advanced models above ground without accumulating enriched uranium. Iran had roughly 19,000 installed centrifuges before the deal:

In 2019, the IAEA said Iran had begun enrichment with advanced centrifuges at an above-ground pilot plant at Natanz: Since then, Iran started moving three cascades, or clusters, of advanced centrifuges to the underground plant. In November, the IAEA said Iran had fed uranium hexafluoride gas feedstock into the first of those underground cascades:

  • Fordow – The deal bans enrichment at Fordow, a site Iran secretly built inside a mountain and that was exposed by Western intelligence services in 2009. Centrifuges are allowed there for other purposes, like producing stable isotopes. Iran now has 1,044 IR-1 centrifuges enriching there: The breaches lengthened the breakout time but estimates still vary. Many diplomats and nuclear experts say the starting point of one year is conservative and Iran would need longer: David Albright, a former U.N. weapons inspector who tends to have a hawkish position on Iran, estimated in November that Iran’s breakout time could be “as short as 3.5 months”, although this presumes Iran would use 1,000 advanced centrifuges that were removed under the deal.:
    Complete details of assassination of Iranian nuclear scientist: photos LEBANON (6:10 P.M.) – The Iranian media revealed the details of the assassination of the top nuclear scientist who specializes in the field of nuclear missiles, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, earlier today.The Iranian Mehr News Agency published the details of the assassination, stating that the assassination began in the Ibsard region near the city of Damavand near the capital, Tehran.They indicated that while Fakhrizadeh’s car was passing by with his personal escort before a pickup truck pulled in front of them and blocked their travel.Continue reading Complete details of assassination of Iranian nuclear scientist: photos at AMN – Al-Masdar News | المصدر نيوز………. https://t.me/almasdarnews1/14921

(LONDON) Kingston Crown Report: Three man have been ground guilty on Friday on various ‘ Terrorism C harges ‘ attack planning & dissemination of extremist material ‘ and will be sentenced in ea rly 2021 #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.28: Three men have been convicted of terrorism offences following an investigation by the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command (CTC) with support from Counter Terrorism Police North West (CTPNW) and Eastern Region Special Operations Unit (ERSOU) into attack planning and the dissemination of extremist material:

Three men convicted of ‘ terrorism offences ‘ on Friday on various charges after following an investgation by CTC with support from CTPNW officers.

The three men are:

Mohammed Tahir, 19 (17.06.00) of Peterborough, pleaded guilty to one count of disseminating a terrorist publication, contrary to section 2 of the Terrorism Act (TACT) 2006, at Kingston Crown Court on Friday, 4 December: Tahir is now scheduled for a Newton hearing on the basis of his plea in early January 2021:

– Muhammed Saeed, 21 (25.03.98) of Manchester, who pleaded guilty on 19 June to five counts of possessing an article in circumstances which give rise to a reasonable suspicion that the possession is for a purpose connected with the commission, preparation or instigation of an act of terrorism, contrary to section 57(1) of the Terrorism Act (TACT) 2000.

  • Mohamed Ismail, 23 (11.06.96) of north London, who pleaded guilty on 16 October to two counts of disseminating a terrorist publication, contrary to section 2 of the Terrorism Act (TACT) 2006.

‘ All three have been remanded in custody and will be sentenced on a date in early 2021 ‘

Commander Richard Smith, head of the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command, said: “I am very pleased with today’s result. Three young men have now been convicted of terrorism offences thanks to the vigilance of counter terrorism officers: “The Met works with other police forces and security services to provide a counter terrorism network throughout the UK to investigate suspicious activity such as that carried out by these three men and to bring offenders to justice: “However, the Met is also working hard to prevent young people from being drawn towards activity in the first place.

“ I urge anyone who is concerned that someone they know is potentially at risk of radicalisation to tell someone and help them take a different path: You can get specialist support at www.actearly.uk – a new dedicated safeguarding website and advice line from the specialists at Counter Terrorism Policing.”

Detective Superintendent Andy Waldie, head of ERSOU’s Counter Terrorism Policing unit, said: “It’s clear that Tahir is a dangerous individual and it is testament to all those involved in the operation that he had little option but to admit the offences: “This investigation included significant partnership working across the Counter Terrorism Policing network and I’m delighted that the work of our talented teams at ERSOU has contributed to keeping our communities safe.”……Tahir was arrested and charged as above on 30 December 2019 with two other men as part of a planned operation into three individuals across the UK. CTC, ERSOU and CTPNW worked together to make the arrests.

You can report any suspicious behaviour or activity that you think could be terrorist-related, including online graphic or violent extremist material or content that supports, directs or glorifies terrorism by visiting the Action Counters Terrorism (ACT) website or alternatively, by calling police in confidence on 0800 789 321. …….If you are worried that someone you know is being radicalised, visit www.actearly.uk or call the national Police Prevent Advice Line on 0800 011 3764, in confidence. Our specially trained Prevent officers will listen carefully to your concerns. You won’t be wasting our time and you won’t ruin lives, but you might save them:

(PYONGYANG, N.K.) #Coronavirus Report: The North tried to hack at least one South Korean pharmaceutical company developing a #Covid19 vaccine, lawmaker Ha Tae-keung told reporters after attending a closed-door briefing by the National Intelligence Service (NIS) #AceNewsDesk report

#AceHealthReport – Nov.28: North Korea conducted a cyberattack on companies connected with vaccine development, an official in South Korea has said, citing intelligence report: The lawmaker who is a member of the parliamentary intelligence committee, said the NIS did not specify which company had been targeted, but there was no damage from the hacking attempts:

US-based cyber security firm Cybereason said earlier this month a group of hackers from North Korea was targeting companies working on the research and development of Covid-19 vaccines, and similar claims were made by Microsoft: https://t.me/c/1099420761/2094372

The software giant made allegations against Russian hackers as well: However, Russian officials previously said they did not see any reason for such cyber intrusions, as the country is developing several vaccines by itself:

Pyongyang did not comment on the recent allegations: In May, it denounced the accusations of cyber warfare made by the US as a smear campaign: North Korea announced in July that it was developing its own vaccine for Covid-19.

(BANGKOK), Thailand.) Thai authorities have escalated their legal battle against the students leading pro-democracy protests, charging 12 of them with violating a harsh law against defaming the monarchy #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.27: News of the charges comes as the Thai capital Bangkok girded for another rally Wednesday as the students push their demands that Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha and his government step down, the constitution be amended to make it more democratic, and the monarchy be reformed to be made more accountable: Police on Tuesday issued summonses for 12 protest leaders to answer charges of lese majeste, defaming or insulting key members of the royal family: The offence is punishable by up to 15 years imprisonment:

Students leading pro-democracy-protests have been 12 have been charged by authorities for violating a law against defaming the monarchy …..


Telegram: https://t.me/acenewsgroup/1043849

The law is controversial, because anyone — not just royals or authorities — can lodge a complaint, so it had in the past been used as a weapon in political vendettas. But it has not been employed for the past three years, after King Maha Vajiralongkorn informed the government that he did not wish to see its use: The king has not publicly commented on the law since then:

According to the legal aid group Thai Lawyers for Human Rights, the 12 suspects include top protest leaders known for their public criticism of the monarchy: Many in the student-led protest movement believe the monarchy holds too much power for a constitutional monarchy. But their challenge is fiercely opposed by royalists, who consider the royal institution an untouchable bedrock of national identity.One of the 12 protest leaders, Parit “Penguin” Chiwarak, posted his response to the summons on Twitter on Tuesday, saying: “I am not afraid anymore.

The ceiling (of our demands) is destroyed: Nobody can stop us now.”The protest movement late Tuesday night announced a change of venue for their latest rally, which was to put a focus on the monarchy. It had earlier announced that it would be held outside the offices of the Crown Property Bureau, which manages the vast fortune controlled by the king.

The target was switched to the head office of the Siam Commercial Bank, a publicly-held company in which the king is the biggest shareholder: The bank’s headquarters are in a different area of Bangkok, far from the district hosting the Crown Property Bureau and other royal and government offices: The protest movement announced the change of venue was to avoid a confrontation with police and royalist counter demonstrators, which they said they feared could trigger a declaration of martial law or a coup by the military.
Barbed wire had already been installed around the Crown Property Bureau offices and the government had declared an exclusion zone of 150 meters (500 feet) around the property into which it would be illegal for protesters to enter: The bank, as a commercial enterprise rather than a royal office, apparently would not fall into the legal category of areas where an exclusion zone could be declared:

A protest rally on Nov. 17 turned chaotic, as police employed water cannons and tear gas to block the protesters from entering the Parliament grounds: At least 55 people were hurt, including six reported to have had gunshot wounds, incurred in circumstances that remain unclear. Police denied firing live rounds or rubber bullets: The next day, several thousand demonstrators gathered outside the national headquarters of the police in central Bangkok to protest the use of force: The rally at police headquarters was nonviolent but fueled royalist outrage at the protest movement, as demonstrators defaced the Royal Thai Police sign and scrawled graffiti and chanted slogans that could be considered derogatory to the king:

Prayuth reacted by declaring that the protesters had gone too far and could now expect to be prosecuted for their illegal actions: While protest leaders have faced dozens of charges over the past few months, they have generally been freed on bail, and none have yet come to trial:

(LONDON) Court Hearing Report: A man whose dangerous driving caused the death of a 13-year-old boy has had his sentence increased to 5yrs following intervention by the Solicitor General, Rt Hon Michael Ellis QC MP #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.27: Liam Wilson, 21, had not passed his driving test when he bought a car for £250 in July 2020: Despite being told he would need to insure and MOT the vehicle immediately if he wanted to drive it, he chose not to do so: On Tuesday 7 July 2020, Wilson drove the car through Ashton-in-Makerfield. He drove the car around a bend at 58mph in a 20mph zone: Wilson lost control of the car and collided with Jack Worwood, 13, who died in hospital the following day: After colliding with the victim and crashing the car, Wilson fled the scene and hid from police: He was arrested the following day: Wilson was sentenced to 4 years’ imprisonment and disqualified from driving for 5 years and 10 months on 4 September 2020 at Bolton Crown Court: Following a referral to the Court of Appeal by the Solicitor General, on 27 November the sentence was found to be unduly lenient and has been increased to 5 years’ imprisonment: The Court also increased Wilson’s driving disqualification to 6 years and 6 months:

Liam Wilson has had his sentence increased following intervention from the Solicitor General, Rt Hon Michael Ellis QC MP.

Attorney General’s Office

Speaking after the hearing, the Solicitor General said:

Wilson’s dangerous driving killed an innocent young boy who was on his way to play football. He fled the scene after the crash and showed little remorse. No sentence can repair the damage Wilson caused, but I hope the Court of Appeal’s decision today gives some closure to the victim’s family.

(MINNEAPOLIS) #Coronavirus MDH Report: Health Officials confirm that there were another 101 new #COVID19 deaths setting a new record on Wednesday according to WCCO #AceHealthDesk report

#AceHealthReport – Nov.27: Minnesota health officials on Friday reported that there were 5,704 additional COVID-19 cases and 101 more deaths as of Wednesday. It’s the first time the state has breached 100 in newly reported deaths: The data is as of Wednesday due to observation of the Thanksgiving holiday. The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) will also be releasing Thursday’s and Friday’s data collectively on Saturday: Therefore, newly reported case and death numbers may appear greater than normal on Saturday:

WCCO | CBS Minnesota https://ift.tt/3q1328x

The new data from Wednesday brings the state’s death toll to 3,476, with 2,355 being in long-term care: Sixty-five of the 101 additional deaths involved someone at a long-term care or group home situation:

Minnesota Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm issued a statement following the update, calling it a sad development, but not surprising: ” For weeks we have been sounding the alarm about the dramatic growth in COVID-19 cases. We know that more cases leads to more hospitalizations and deaths, and today’s news reinforces that tragic pattern,” she said: Malcolm says every public activity is now more risky than it was even a few weeks ago, so the best way to slow the spread is to stay home: ” This is painful and frustrating, but every day we get closer to having safe and effective vaccines that should help resolve this crisis. We anxiously await that day, and until then we all must do our part to ensure that all of our loved ones, friends and neighbors can celebrate those days with us,” she said.

#COVID19 Additionl Data:

Total cases in the state is now at 295,001. Nearly 22,000 cases have been found amongst health care workers; 244,982 people who have contracted the virus no longer need to quarantine: The state’s health system continues to strain with more COVID-19 patients being admitted for treatment.

According to MDH data as recent as Nov. 24, there are 387 patients with the virus needing ICU beds and an additional 1,454 patients needing non-ICU beds. That’s a total of 1,812 patients currently needing treatment for the virus in the state. Both ICU and non-ICU bed use for COVID-19 patients continues to reach levels not seen before in the state, and have increased since mid-September. There were about 271 patients being treated for COVID-19 on Sept. 15:

As for testing, over 55,000 tests were completed on Wednesday: A total of 2.4 million people have been tested in the state so far:

(WASHINGTON) #Biden Report: A Joe Biden White House could be a boon for union activists as the Democrat seeks to implement a controversial California labor law nationwide according to Washington Free Beacon #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.27: House Democrats passed the PRO Act in February 2020 in a mostly party-line vote. The bill empowers the National Labor Relations Board to fine employers for violations of employee rights and allows the classification of independent contractors as employees: It also weakens right-to-work laws in more than half of the states in the country:

Washington Free Beacon https://ift.tt/33EozdJ

Michael Lotito, co-chair of Littler’s Workplace Policy Institute (WPI), said that the adoption of the PRO Act on the federal level would be one of the most dramatic labor reforms in American history: ” It’s like putting 100 Christmases together as a gift to labor,” he told the Washington Free Beacon in a phone interview:

The bill is similar to California’s Assembly Bill 5, passed last year: AB5 created a three-step test to limit the employers’ ability to classify their employees as independent contractors. A report from Littler’s Workplace Policy Institute suggests a Biden administration could adopt similarly pro-union standards in 2021:

” The PRO Act is viewed by some as an attempt to restore organized labor’s role in Democratic Party policymaking,” the WPI report states: ” The act’s future depends on the two Senate races in Georgia that will determine control of the Senate.”

” If Republicans maintain control, the PRO Act will almost certainly fail to advance,” the report continues. “In that case, the Biden administration would have to shape labor policy by other means, including by flipping the National Labor Relations Board majority and appointing a Democratic general counsel during President-elect Biden’s first year in office.”

On his campaign website, Biden called for implementing California’s employer-classification standards to target the gig economy and other industries that rely on independent contractors: Federal labor laws would be more difficult to challenge in court than state labor laws, Lotito said:

” On a nationwide scale, the ABC test, or the situation in California, then becomes the law of the land in all 50 states,” he said. “The independent contractor model is going to be destroyed as a result of the ABC test.”

The adoption of the principles of AB5 on a national scale in the PRO Act would have widespread impact on how employees are classified: The California law is already being challenged in state and federal courts by small-business owners and franchise operations. Kerry Jackson, a California Studies fellow at the Pacific Research Institute, said the policies have already hindered the Golden State’s economy and could do even more damage if applied federally: ” AB5 has already wrecked the personal finances of many in California and stripped workers of their freedom,” Jackson told the Free Beacon. “It’s also a threat to any business that relies on independent contractors to be profitable. On a national basis, the damage would be even worse.”

A Biden presidency would be able to accomplish reforms through executive orders: Biden, who did not respond to request for comment, stressed his commitment to supporting worker unionization by saying he would impose “a personal price” on business leaders who resist attempts to unionise: ” I’m going to hold company executives personally liable for interfering with workers who are attempting to unionize. It’s not enough just to have their corporations pay a fine. If they’re part of the problem, they are going to pay a personal price,” he said:

Labor unions donated more than $1 million to Biden’s presidential campaign, and 87 percent of unions’ total contributions went to Democratic candidates or causes: Jackson said that Biden does not need control of Congress to enact regulations that will harm employers: I imagine he’ll use executive orders as much as the courts will allow him to,” Jackson said. “His boss of eight years was not shy about using his pen and phone to make rules he couldn’t legitimately get out of Congress.”

(NEW DELHI, India.) JUST IN: Some 5,000 farmers were allowed to enter the capital on Friday for a peaceful protest under police escort as tensions remained high, with clashes between demonstrators and police continuing elsewhere in India according to RT News #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.27: New Delhi police ask to convert stadiums into prisons as Indian capital grapples with thousands-strong farmer protest: Farmers across India are taking part in demonstrations against agricultural reforms: They fear that new rules of sale, storage and pricing — first introduced in September – will strip small growers of bargaining power and leave them at the mercy of big business: The ‘Dilli Chalo’ (On to Delhi) march was meant to bring the protest to the capital, but it was met with barricades, tear gas and water cannon: Police say the mass demonstrations pose a serious health risk due to the #Covid19 #pandemic

Earlier in the day, the police asked the New Delhi government to temporarily convert nine stadiums in the city into jails, where they could keep arrested activists. The petition was rejected.

Meanwhile clashes between farmers and police continue elsewhere in India. Protesters attempted to dismantle barriers at the Haryana-Delhi border and built a barricade at the Delhi-Bahadurgarh highway.

#AceHistoryReport – Nov.26: In his first presidential proclamation, George Washington designated November 26, 1789 as a Day of National Thanksgiving. The next president to issue a Thanksgiving Proclamation was Abraham Lincoln, who in 1863, also designated November 26. In October of his third year in office, Lincoln invited Americans to “set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next as a day of thanksgiving and praise.”

Happy #Thanksgiving To All Friends, Followers & Readers & Here’s #OnThisDay In History November 26 in the Beginning:

November 26

Thanksgiving Day

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor, and Whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanks-giving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.” Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th. day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be.

Thanksgiving was practiced in America by early British colonists. In a letter dated September 4, 1619, Sir William Throckmorton, Richard Bearkley, George Thorpe, and John Smyth gave Captain John Woodlief various orders, including one for an annual religious observance of thanksgiving at the newly established Berkeley Hundred plantation in Virginia:

Impr[imatur] wee ordaine that the day of our ships arrivall at the place assigned for planta[tion] in the land of Virginia shall be yearly and perpetualy keept holy as a day of thanksgiving to Almighty god.

Volume III, p. 207. Series 8: Virginia Records Manuscripts. Thomas Jefferson Papers, 1606 to 1827 . Manuscript Division

The origin of the American Thanksgiving tradition of feasting, though, is generally credited to the Pilgrims. As early as 1621, the Puritan colonists of Plymouth, Massachusetts set aside a day of thanks for a bountiful harvest. Throughout the colonial period and into the nineteenth century, official days of feasting and fasting commemorated periods of good and poor fortune.

Printed Ephemera: Three Centuries of Broadsides and Other Printed Ephemera. Rare Book & Special Collections Division

When Boston Harbor was closed in retribution for the Boston Tea Party, for example, Massachusetts authorities declared a fast day. The Virginia House of Burgesses ordered fasting in support of the Bay Colony. Complying with the proclamation, on June 1, 1774, George Washington noted in his diary, “Went to Church and fasted all day.”

Most early Thanksgiving days were spontaneous celebrations. However, by the mid-nineteenth century, an annual fall Thanksgiving meal was customary throughout much of the United States and its Territories. During the gold rush, miners far from home observed a day of thanks. On December 1, 1850, Alfred T. Jackson of Litchfield County, Connecticut described his California Thanksgiving:

Although there was nothing to show it, we observed Thursday as Thanksgiving, as that was the legal day in the States. All we did was to lay off and eat quail stew and dried apple pie. I thought a lot about the old folks and would like to have been home with them, and I guess I will be next year…

For more than a decade, writer and editor Sarah Josepha Hale pushed for an annual day of national Thanksgiving. From the helm of several prominent women’s magazines, Hale editorialized about the importance of a national Thanksgiving celebration. She also wrote to President Lincoln directly. On October 3, 1863, in the wake of Union victory at the Civil War battle at Gettysburg, President Abraham Lincoln decided to issue his first Thanksgiving Proclamation; his second followed in 1864. The President’s Hymn, composed in honor of the new holiday, rang out across the nation.

Give thanks, all ye people, give thanks to the Lord,
Alleluias of freedom with joyful accord:
Let the East and the West, North and South roll along,
Sea, mountain and prairie, One thanksgiving song.

Since Lincoln in 1863, every President of the United States has issued an annual Thanksgiving Proclamation, each citing a specific date. While most proclaimed Thanksgiving for the fourth or last Thursday of November, Franklin D. Roosevelt chose the third Thursdays of November 1939 through 1941, for economic reasons. Late in 1941, Congress passed Thanksgiving legislation that Roosevelt signed into law on December 26, 1941. Public Law 77-379 set Thanksgiving Days from 1942 onward to the fourth Thursday in November. The Law also made Thanksgiving Day an annual Federal Holiday.

Preacher, abolitionist, and women’s rights advocate Sojourner Truth died in Battle Creek, Michigan on November 26, 1883. The date of Truth’s birth is uncertain, but around 1797 she was born into slavery and called “Isabella” in Ulster, New York. Bought and sold four times, she escaped slavery in 1826 when her owner failed to fulfill his promise to free her before the date mandated by New York law.

Nearly twenty years later, she shed the name, Isabella Van Wagener, and adopted the moniker Sojourner Truth: A prophet and sojourning minister, she spoke out against sin and slavery. Encouraged by Lucretia Mott and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, she added the cause of women’s rights to her agenda. Today, Truth is most famous for her speech “Ain’t I A Woman.” She attacked the idea of the “weaker sex” reportedly saying,

I have plowed, I have planted and I have gathered into barns. And no man could head me. And ain’t I a woman? I could work as much, and eat as much as man—when I could get it—and bear the lash as well! And ain’t I a woman? I have borne children and seen most of them sold into slavery, and when I cried out with a mother’s grief, none but Jesus heard me. And ain’t I a woman?

When the Civil War began, Truth organized supplies for black volunteer troops. In 1864, President Lincoln received her at the White House. That same year, she advised former slaves on behalf of the National Freedmen’s Relief Association. She continued to offer advice in the 1870s, encouraging African Americans to migrate to the western states of Kansas and Missouri: Truth managed to reunite with most of her children. Three daughters joined her in Battle Creek, Michigan where she settled in the 1850s. When she died at age eighty-six, her funeral at the Congregational Church was thought to be the largest ever seen in that city.

(LONDON) #Coronavirus Press Release Statement Report: Health Secretary Matt Hancock: Announces rules on regional tiers as we come out of this lockdown with emphasis on protecting people and the NHS to enable those in higher tiers to be able to bring the virus under control: These following areas will be in each tier from the 2 December with a local tracker ….link below #Share2Care #AceHealthDesk report

#AceHealthReport – Nov.26: On 23 November, the Prime Minister set out our COVID-19 Winter Plan in Parliament. Our COVID-19 Winter Plan puts forward the UK Government’s programme for suppressing the virus, protecting the NHS and the vulnerable, keeping education and the economy going, and providing a route back to normality: Thanks to the shared sacrifice of everyone in recent weeks, in following the national restrictions, we have been able to start to bring the virus back under control and slow its growth, easing some of the pressure on the NHS: We will do this by returning to a regional tiered approach, saving the toughest measures for the parts of the country where prevalence remains too high:

#Coronavirus Report: GOVUK Matt Hancock says now we are returning to a regional tiered approach from December.02: 2020:

A written statement from the Health and Social Care Secretary to the House of Commons on returning to local COVID restriction tiers in England.

Department of Health and Social Care

The tiering approach provides a framework that, if used firmly, should prevent the need to introduce stricter national measures. On 2 December we will lift the national restrictions across all of England and the following restrictions will be eased:

  • the stay-at-home requirement will end
  • non-essential retail, gyms, personal care will reopen. The wider leisure and entertainment sectors will also reopen, although to varying degrees
  • communal worship, weddings and outdoor sports can resume
  • people will no longer be limited to seeing one other person in outdoor public spaces, where the rule of 6 will now apply

The new regulations set out the restrictions applicable in each tier. We have taken into account advice from SAGE on the impact of the previous tiers to strengthen the measures in the tiers, and help enable areas to move more swiftly into lower tiers.

The changes to the tiers are as follows:

  • in tier 1, the government will reinforce the importance that, where people can work from home, they should do so
  • in tier 2, hospitality settings that serve alcohol must close, unless operating as restaurants. Hospitality venues can only serve alcohol with substantial meals
  • in tier 3, hospitality will close except for delivery, drive-through and takeaway, hotels and other accommodation providers must close (except for specific exemptions, such as people staying for work purposes, where people are attending a funeral, or where they cannot return home) and indoor entertainment venues such as cinemas, theatres and bowling allies must also close. Elite sport will be played without spectators. Organised outdoor sport can resume, but the Government will advise against higher risk contact sports

These are not easy decisions, but they have been made according to the best clinical advice, and the criteria that we set out in the COVID-19 Winter Plan.

These are:

  1. case detection rates in all age groups
  2. case detection rates in the over 60s
  3. the rate at which cases are rising or falling
  4. positivity rate (the number of positive cases detected as a percentage of tests taken)
  5. pressure on the NHS

The indicators have been designed to give the government a picture of what is happening with the virus in any area so that suitable action can be taken: These key indicators need to be viewed in the context of how they interact with each other as well as the wider context but provide an important framework for decision making – assessing the underlying prevalence in addition to how the spread of the disease is changing in areas: Given these sensitivities, it is not possible to set rigid thresholds for these indicators:

The regulations will require the government to review the allocations every 14 days, with the first review complete by the end of 16 December: We have been able to announce UK-wide arrangements for Christmas, allowing friends and loved ones to reunite, and form a Christmas bubble of 3 households for 5 days over the Christmas period: We have increased funding through our Contain Outbreak Management Fund, which will provide monthly payments to local authorities facing higher restrictions: We are also launching a major community testing programme, honing in on the areas with the greatest rate of infection: This programme is open to local authorities in tier 3 areas and offers help to get out of the toughest restrictions as fast as possible:

The following areas will be in each tier from the 2 December: This list will also be published on GOV.UK and a postcode tracker will be available for the public to check what rules apply in their local area:
