(LOS ANGELES, Calif.) LA County Sheriffs Dept Report: Detectives investigating back-to-back shootings one of a man on Friday afternoon and the other of two teenage boys found shot to death in a crashed vehicle the night before #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.18: The community of Willowbrook on Saturday was grappling with the aftermath of back-to-back deadly shootings: one involving the deputy shooting of a Black man on Friday afternoon, and the other involving two teenage boys found shot to death after a car crash the night before:

As Los Angeles County sheriff’s detectives investigated the shootings, tensions ran high among many area residents who struggled to cope with the anxiety over the burst of violent crime in their neighborhood southeast of downtown: Throughout the day Saturday, dozens of people gathered at a curbside memorial of candles and rap music across the street from usually placid Mona Park and a neighborhood fence where Fred Williams III, 25, was shot and killed by a sheriff’s deputy after a brief chase: Among them was Sandy Hendrix, 57, a neighbor who had known Williams since he was a young boy.

(LONDON) NCA Project Invigor Report: First man has been arrested in East Sussex on suspicion of of supplying small-craft to aid people smugglers in France and detained 4-men, two Albanian nationals & two Romanian nationals, near Kent on Fri.16: Oct: 2020: after witnessing what is believed to have been a handover of migrants from a lorry into two cars #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.18: The first saw a man arrested in East Sussex on suspicion of supplying small boats to aid people smugglers in France: NCA officers detained the 30-year-old in Hastings, at around 9am this morning (16 October) Shortly afterwards a property on Battle Road was searched. The operation was supported by officers from Sussex Police:

NCA Officers Target ‘ Organised Crime Gangs ‘ alleged to be involved in people smuggling in small boats and lorries from France to the U.K.

The NCA investigation relates to the sale and distribution of vessels sourced in the UK, and subsequently taken to France to be used in cross-Channel facilitation attempts: Officers suspect the individual concerned of being linked to a number of vessels which have been used in crossings by migrants: One such vessel was recovered from St Margaret’s Bay in Kent on 2 September, a day in which around 400 people reached the UK using small boats.

The investigation is being supported by Project Invigor, the immigration crime taskforce led by the NCA, but also including Immigration Enforcement, Border Force and the CPS, and also French law enforcement: Separately, NCA officers have made another series of arrests as part of an investigation targeting a criminal network suspected of smuggling migrants into the UK in vans or lorries: They detained four men, two Albanian nationals and two Romanian nationals, near the A2 Cobham Services, Kent at around 8 this morning after witnessing what is believed to have been a handover of migrants from a lorry into two cars: Four Albanian migrants were also detained and have now been handed to the immigration authorities: All those arrested are now being questioned on suspicion of facilitating illegal immigration.

NCA Regional Head of Investigations Andrea Wilson said: “The organised crime groups involved in people smuggling are cynical in their exploitation of migrants, and are happy to put them in incredibly dangerous and life-threatening situations, either in boats or in the back of lorries: “We believe this activity today will significantly disrupt at least two such networks: “Working with partners we are determined to do all we can to disrupt and dismantle the criminals behind these crossings, and our investigation into this particular criminal enterprise continues.”

(BANGKOK, Thailand.) JUST IN: Hundreds of Thai anti-government protesters demonstrated in the capital on Sunday, again defying a ban on protests against Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha and the powerful monarchy #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.18: Thai protesters take to streets in new show of defiance: Demonstrations have persisted despite the arrest of dozens of protesters and their leaders, the use of water cannon and shutdowns on much of Bangkok’s metro rail system in a bid to quell over three months of street action:

Riot Police Officers in Bangkok have arrest dozens of ‘ activists & protestors ‘ on Sunday against the ruling junta after they banned protests on Thursday

Reuters Wire News, [Oct 18, 2020 at 10:52] https://t.me/reuters_news_agency/41230
Protesters moved quickly from point to point, posting different sites for possible demonstrations on social media: “We will stay until it’s over or move to another location with other activists,” said Dee, 25, one of several dozen protesters at Asok, one of the busiest interchanges in Bangkok. Hundreds gathered at the Victory Monument, nearly 5 km (3 miles)away by road: Protesters at Asok put up handwritten up notices on the shuttered station that read “Does licking the boots of the dictator taste good?” and other using coarser language.

A few police gathered on the other side of the interchange but did not immediately intervene: “We are committed to maintain peace and order. In order to do so we are bound by laws, international standards, human rights.” police spokesman Kissana Phathanacharoen told a news conference.

Protesters say Prayuth engineered last year’s election to keep power he seized in a 2014 coup – an accusation he denies: The demonstrations have also become more openly critical of King Maha Vajiralongkorn’s monarchy, breaking a longstanding taboo, demanding curbs to its powers despite potential jail terms of up 15 years for anyone insulting the king.

The Royal Palace has made no comment on the protests but the king has said Thailand needed people who love the country and the monarchy: The government banned demonstrations in Bangkok on Thursday: During demonstrations by tens of thousands of people at multiple points across Bangkok on Saturday, protesters painted a flag on the road with “Republic of Thailand” written across it: The writing was painted out overnight: Across Thailand, demonstrations were being organised in at least 19 other provinces in solidarity on Sunday: Solidarity protests were also being held or planned in Taiwan, Denmark, Sweden, France, the United States and Canada.

(PARIS, France.) JUST IN: WATCH restaurant owners & activists march in protest against #Covid19 curfew in capital on Saturday

#AceNewsReport – Oct.18: Enraged business owners have taken to the streets of the French capital to denounce the “ridiculous” curfew recently introduced by President Emmanuel Macron in an effort to stop the spread of #Covid19

Carrying flares and chanting “Freedom!” people marched through Paris’ streets on Saturday, denouncing the recent restrictions imposed by the government to combat the spread of the coronavirus. The protesters argue that the tough new measures badly hurt the restaurant industry, which is already reeling from the lockdown imposed in the spring:

“I hope that the government stops these ridiculous measures that put people in the streets,” a restaurant owner told the Ruptly video agency.

President Emmanuel Macron has imposed a four-week nighttime curfew in the capital, which began on Saturday: Residents are banned from going outside between 9pm and 6am, which also means that iconic Parisian cafes, bars and restaurants must close early. Similar curfews were put into place in several other major cities, including Lyon, Lille, Toulouse and Marseille:

Macron argued that the curfew will help to “put a brake on the spread of the virus.”

France had been gradually relaxing lockdown measures since May, as the situation with Covid-19 was improving: However, the infection rate has surged again in recent months, prompting authorities to start bringing back some restrictions:

(SANTIAGO, Chile.) JUST IN: Citzens are about to vote on on rewriting the their whole constitution and turn it into a ‘ social plan for the country with those remembering and protesting that brought them to this crossroads on Oct.25: Referendum #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.18: Natalia Aravena rushed down a small side street to escape, she recalls. Chile’s police force, the carabineros, were dispersing a protest near Santiago’s presidential palace on Oct. 28 2019, one of hundreds that broke out over inequality and the cost of living in the South American country late last year. As Aravena, a 25 year-old nurse, turned to check she wasn’t being followed, a tear gas canister hit her in the face. Hours later, she lost her right eye:

Chile’s protests have brought the country to a historic crossroads: an Oct. 25 referendum on rewriting the country’s constitution. “I was thinking the other day that in Spanish, when something is really expensive, we say ‘it costs an eye from your face’,” Aravena tells TIME. “It literally cost me that for us to get here.”

The referendum was the main concession politicians made last November as they tried to pacify protesters with an “agreement for peace.” The left argue that the 1980 constitution, written under rightwing dictator Augusto Pinochet, is implicitly designed to protect Chile’s model: minimizing the role of the state, limiting voters’ political choices and making it harder for Chilean governments to expand social welfare or interfere with businesses. It became a major target of protests, which began with teenagers jumping subway turnstiles to protest a small subway fare hike but quickly morphed into a so-called “social explosion”—an all-out rejection of the neoliberal economic model that has made Chile one of the region’s richest countries, but also created spiralling inequality. Aravena was one of more than 400 people who suffered eye injuries as the carabineros violently repressed the protests: I Was Shot and Lost My Sight for Protesting Inequality in Chile. We Need to Keep Demanding Justice

Rewriting the constituion won’t solve all of the country’s problems, Aravena says, but it’s the best chance of turning the energy of the protests into lasting change. Roughly 80% of Chileans plan to vote “Approve”—in favour of a rewrite—according to polls. Even a few prominent figures from the right, such as likely presidential candidate Joaquín Lavín—a former Pinochet ally—have backed “Approve,” rather than “Reject.” But political analysts say that’s where the consensus ends. Some see the referendum as a symbolic opportunity to move on from the dictatorship or tinker with the existing model. Others want a total transformation: ” Chilean neoliberalism isn’t just an economic policy. It’s become a way of conceiving life itself: social relations, cities, democracy, society, and the economy,” says young politician Jorge Sharp. He won a shock victory in 2016 to become mayor of Valparaiso, a coastal city two hours from Santiago, on a leftist platform. The 35-year-old is now one of the most prominent progressive voices in Chile. “Rewriting the constitution is our chance to lay the foundations of a new society, a new state and a new country.”

(NAGORNO-KARABAKH, Azerbaijan.) LATEST: On Saturday authorities accused Armenia of striking its second-largest city with a ballistic missile that killed at least 13 civilians and wounded 50 others in a new escalation of the conflict #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.17: The Armenian Defense Ministry denied launching the strike, but the separatist authorities in Nagorno-Karabakh put out a statement listing alleged “legitimate” military facilities in the city of Ganja, although they stopped short of claiming responsibility for the attack: Azerbaijani officials said the Soviet-made Scud missile destroyed or damaged about 20 residential buildings in Ganja overnight, and emergency workers spent hours searching in the rubble for victims and survivors:

KTLA https://ift.tt/3lYOymu

Scud missiles date back to the 1960s and carry a big load of explosives but are known for their lack of precision: In a televised address to the nation, Azerbaijan’s president, Ilham Aliyev, denounced the missile strike as a war crime and warned the leadership of Armenia that it would face responsibility for that:

“ Azerbaijan will give its response and it will do so exclusively on the battlefield,” Aliyev said: While authorities in both Azerbaijan and Armenia have denied targeting civilians, residential areas have increasingly come under shelling amid the hostilities that have raged for three weeks despite Russia’s attempt to broker a cease-fire.

Stepanakert, the regional capital of Nagorno-Karabakh, came under intense shelling overnight, leaving three civilians wounded, according to separatist authorities: Aliyev announced Saturday that Azerbaijani forces have taken the town of Fizuli and seven villages around it, gaining a “strategic edge.”…………..Fizuli is one of the seven Azerbaijani regions outside Nagorno-Karabakh that was seized by the Armenian forces during the war in the early 1990s.

Russia, which has a security pact with Armenia but also has cultivated warm ties with Azerbaijan, hosted top diplomats from both countries for more than 10 hours of talks that ended with Saturday’s cease-fire deal: But the agreement immediately frayed, with both sides blaming each other for breaching it:

Azerbaijan has insisted it has the right to reclaim its land by force after efforts by the so-called Minsk group of international mediators that comprises Russia, the United States and France failed to yield any progress. Azerbaijan has actively pushed for its ally Turkey to take a prominent role in future peace talks:

Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar spoke on the phone with his Azerbaijani counterpart, congratulating Azerbaijan on “liberating Fizuli from the occupation” and downing the Armenian jets:

The Azerbaijani military declared Saturday that they downed an Armenian Su-25 jet, a claim quickly dismissed by Armenia’s Defense Ministry: Drones and rocket systems supplied by Turkey have given the Azerbaijani military an edge on the battlefield, helping them outgun the Armenian forces that rely mostly on outdated Soviet-era weapons:

(PARIS, France.) LATEST: Beheaded French teacher was DOXXED online, while mosque shared parent’s complaint over ‘naked man’ caricature of Prophet Mohammed #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.17: French teacher Samuel Paty, who was brutally murdered near Paris on Friday, had his private details exposed on social media last week, after a parent complained he’d shown “naked man” cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed in class:

The original complaint was reportedly lodged by the father of a 13-year-old girl who studied at the school in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine, where Paty taught history and geography: He said in a Facebook video that the teacher had, at some time earlier this month, shown the class a caricature of a “naked man,” stating it was the “Muslim prophet.”

Before displaying the offensive imagery – widely believed to be a cartoon from the notorious Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine – the teacher asked Muslims to leave the classroom, the father claimed: His daughter and another Muslim boy refused to leave, however, and then took offense with the imagery, complaining to their parents:


RT World News https://ift.tt/3lOkcDo

The girl’s father then called upon fellow Muslims to take action against the teacher and urged them to file complaints to the school to have Paty fired. While the original post did not contain Paty’s name, it had enough information to have the teacher easily identified: Soon, social media reposts began to include Paty’s personal data, screenshots circulating online suggest.

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

The drive to have the teacher fired was backed by a local mosque, which shared the video address and urged followers to contact the father of the offended girl:

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

The post, which apparently did not include the teacher’s private details, has been taken down by the mosque after Paty’s murder, as it released a statement to condemn the beheading:

“We strongly condemn this savagery, Islam and its teachings strongly oppose such acts,” La Grande Mosquée de Pantin wrote.

Also on rt.com

Flowers are seen at the entrance of the middle school in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine, 30kms northwest of Paris, on October 17, 2020.

Samuel Paty was killed and beheaded in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine on Friday. The perpetrator, who has been identified as an 18-year-old man of Chechen origin, was gunned down by the police in the neighboring town of Eragny, after firing his handgun at the officers: The murder suspect enjoyed refugee status in France and received a residence permit in March, a French anti-terrorism prosecutor said on Saturday:

(STOCKHOLM, Sweden.) JUST IN; Oceanbird might look like a ship of the future, but it harks back to ancient maritime history — because it’s powered by the wind according to CNN #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.17: CNN reported that the transatlantic car carrier is being designed by Wallenius Marine, a Swedish shipbuilder, with support from the Swedish government and several research institutions: With capacity for 7,000 vehicles, the 650 foot-long vessel is a similar size to conventional car carriers, but it will look radically different: The ship’s hull is topped by five telescopic “wing sails,” each 260 feet tall: Capable of rotating 360 degrees without touching each other, the sails can be retracted to 195 feet in order to clear bridges or withstand rough weather: CNN.Com/

The sails, which will be made of steel and composite materials, need to be this size to generate enough propulsive power for the 35,000-ton ship: Although “the general principles of solid wing sails is not new,” designing the Oceanbird’s sails has been a challenge, says Mikael Razola, a naval architect and research project manager for Oceanbird at Wallenius Marine. That’s because these are the tallest ship sails that have ever been constructed. “This ship, at the top of the mast, will be more than 100 meters (328 feet) above the water surface,” says Razola. “When you move up into the sky that much, wind direction and velocity change quite a lot.” Oceanbird has a projected top speed of about 10 knots and will take around 12 days to cross the Atlantic. While that’s considerably slower than standard car carriers, which can travel at 17 knots, the Oceanbird will emit 90% less CO2 than conventional car carriers.

” Razola says their plan is “to see Oceanbird sailing in 2024.”

(PARIS, France.) LATEST: The teenager identified by prosecutors as Abdoulakh A. lived with his family and had never appeared on the radar of French intelligence agencies: But he propelled himself into their sights in horrific manner on Friday evening when he beheaded a school teacher who showed pupils cartoons that mocked Prophet Mohammed #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.17: French police face worst nightmare: an attacker they never saw coming: The 18-year-old had a record of juvenile delinquency but was too young for police to have built up a file on him: He lived in a Chechen community that is not well understood by intelligence services: He used a knife to decapitate the middle school history teacher, Samuel Paty, who had shown cartoons mocking the Prophet Mohammad to his students in a class on freedom of expression. He was shot dead by police minutes after the attack in a Paris suburb:

French school-teacher who showed cartoons to his pupils is beheaded by a Chechen known as Abdoulakh A with a knife on Friday night


Reuters Wire News, [Oct 17, 2020 at 16:30] https://t.me/reuters_news_agency/41157
The profile of the attacker, as recounted by law-enforcement officials, illustrates the difficulties security agencies face identifying would-be attackers who are often exposed to extreme ideology on the internet and whose contacts with other Islamist militants, if they have any, may have been purely virtual: The government says about 20,000 people in France are on the intelligence agencies’ “Fiche S”, a watchlist of people of posing a security risk to the country: Only a small number of these are under active surveillance: Abdoulakh A. was not on the list at all, police sources said: This is not the first time intelligence services have been blindsided like this:

The 25-year-old Pakistani man who wounded two people last month in a meatcleaver attack outside the former Paris office of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, which published cartoons lampooning the Prophet Mohammad, was not on the Fiche S list: Nor was the IT worker with the Paris police force who knifed four colleagues to death a year earlier:

Abdoulakh A., who was Russian-born and of Chechen origin, was living in the town of Evreux northwest of Paris, according to authorities. On Friday night, police arrested his parents, younger brother and one grandparent, a judicial source said, wanting to establish what they knew of his plans and if he had any accomplices: Some Islamist militants in western countries have been characterized as “lone wolf” attackers. However counter-terrorism experts say it is rare that attackers truly act alone, even if they don’t physically meet their accomplices: The challenge for security services has been to tap into the networks that groom Islamist attackers, both by building stronger relationships with Muslim communities, and infiltrating jihadist social media accounts: They have had some success in doing that with France’s North African community, which has been in the country for many generations. But the Chechen community is more opaque, with most of its members having arrived after the mid-1990s: “We don’t know too much what is happening in the Chechen diaspora,” said Asiem El Difraoui, a political analyst and specialist on jihadism. “There are not many people in the intelligence services who understand the language, and there is a shortage of translators.”

Mairbek Vachagaev, a Chechen emigre living in Paris who runs a newsletter for the Chechen community, wrote on the Telegram messaging service after Friday’s killing: “I’m sure that the whole 67,000-strong Chechen Diaspora in France is in shock over what happened.”

(ABUJA, Nigeria.) Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) In plain clothes operate with ‘ brutality against protestors ‘ with new demonstrations beginning in October …….as one protestor inside speaks out #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.17: I had never been brutalized by the Nigerian police before last Sunday. A new wave of demonstrations began in early October, with protesters speaking out against the brutality of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), a unit of the Nigerian Police Force that often operates in plainclothes. I’ve been helping communicate about the #endSARS protests in real time. Last weekend I tweeted about the protest we were attending in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, and shared our location: We were marching to the police headquarters in Abuja when police started spraying water cannons and throwing tear gas canisters at us to disperse the crowd:

Police officers ambushed my friend and I, grabbed my phone and smashed it on the floor: I was not aggressive, but it did not stop them from beating me up, from ganging up on me and hitting me. I was saying my last prayers. I really thought my life was going to end. It made me realize the danger of a system that has given savages the right to be unsupervised:

The officers transferred my friend and I to the police headquarters, and we met their superior: He told us we were lucky that the encounter was in the day rather than at night, because if it was at night, they would have killed us and erased every trace of our existence. According to Amnesty International, 10 people have died and hundreds have been injured in the protests so far: An alarm was raised about our disappearance on social media, and one of the things that saved us that day was Dr Oby Ezekwesili, the organizer of the Bring Back Our Girls campaign, who came to the police headquarters and insisted on our release. There was also one dissenting police officer who argued against the treatment we received. If Dr Oby had not come to get us, and there had not been that lone voice of reason within the police force, our obituaries would be in the news now.

The problem is institutional. SARS, and the officers working within it, have the support of the police hierarchy. There is no penalty for any crime by the police and they are reluctant to punish one of their own. They don’t want to accept that there is rot in the system. Over the years, the police have been able to kill innocent citizens without any justice, and police brutality has become a culture here. An Amnesty International report earlier this year documented at least 82 cases of torture, ill-treatment and extra-judicial execution by SARS between January 2017 and May 2020. We have challenged this several times before in the streets, and nothing has happened. The political leadership has stopped listening to the masses. We had Occupy Nigeria in 2012, and there have been calls to disband SARS since 2017. What’s happening now is a long-awaited explosion of outrage:

On Oct. 11, the same day I was attacked, Nigeria’s government announced that SARS would be disbanded. This is the fourth time that the government has announced the disbanding of SARS. This time around, there is a replacement, but it’s nothing more than a change of name and acronym, to the Special Weapons and Tactics Team, or SWAT. It’s just like an old wine in a new bottle:

The current #endSARS protests stand out because there is no definite leader: every citizen is the head of this protest. The outrage now is not just about police brutality alone—it’s a result of years of people being undermined by the system. The government has not acknowledged that grievance. This pandemic has left Nigeria vulnerable, and even before it, 40% of Nigerians were living below the poverty line. During the lockdown, people were saying they’d rather be killed by COVID-19 than by hunger:

The people have been waiting for a channel to let out what they are feeling. Now is an opportunity for them to protest police brutality and also express disappointment in a system that has never cared about them. There have been years of bad governance, nepotism, and widespread corruption, and the government has refused to acknowledge these concerns:

The government needs to acknowledge the legitimate outrage, and not undermine it. They have to openly sentence the perpetrators and fully compensate all the victims. I hope there is reassurance that there won’t be business as usual. This is a generation that wants to do things differently, that wants to deviate from the path of their parents, that will no longer accept the old system of governance. The exchange of ideas across international borders has shown us new ways of fighting the system, and new ways of getting the political establishment to sit up:

This time around, people have finally defied the threats and finally defied intimidation. Now they are on the streets, and the government is afraid.

(NEW ZEALAND) JUST IN: Jacinda Ardern Just Won a Landslide Victory on Saturday with 64 of 120-seats in parliament #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.17: If everything had gone to plan, Jacinda Ardern would have been re-elected Prime Minister of New Zealand on Sept. 19, the 127th anniversary of Kiwi women becoming the first on the planet to have both the right to vote and two x-chromosomes: The pandemic nixed that shrewdly orchestrated historical moment, but Ardern’s re-election was memorable enough: On Saturday, her center-left Labour Party will return to power with a landslide of 64 of the 120 seats in Parliament—meaning Ardern has just become the first leader under New Zealand’s current system of government to be elected outright. Unlike her predecessors, she will not have to form a coalition:

One of the world’s more popular leaders just got a lot more power: A Year After Christchurch, Jacinda Ardern Has the World’s Attention. How Will She Use It?

It’s perhaps ironic that Ardern, 40, who has championed multilateralism and coalition-building, would garner election returns comparable with the populist strongman-style leaders that have arisen in more populous countries such as Brazil and India: But it has been hard to argue with her results: New Zealand has kept COVID-19 at bay, losing a mere 25 citizens to the disease so far, with new infections of fewer than 20 a day since mid-April. (The election was disastrous for Ardern’s main opponent, Judith Collins. Her center-right National Party won its lowest number of seats since 2002.)

Ardern’s clear and compassionate messaging during the pandemic, cheering on her “team of five million” blended with such homey encouragements as checking in on “new mums” during her daily Facebook live videos were reminiscent of her other impressive moments of crisis communication, especially her handling of the Christchurch mosque shooting in March 2019: In both cases, her instinct was to remind her compatriots of their connectedness, and show her own vulnerability and humanity, while also acting swiftly and decisively to get difficult tasks done, like getting people to stay inside or hand in their weapons:

Now that the crisis has passed (at least for the moment), Ardern seems more intent on more judicious and consensual action. “I see a strong part of my job is developing working relationships and keeping them strong,” she told TIME in January. “That’s MMP,” she added, referring to New Zealand’s mixed member proportional system of voting, which favors coalitions. Ardern has long championed the power of multilateralism, and on the campaign trail often spoke of how lasting change isn’t possible unless there’s wide support for it from several corners:

So what will a “pragmatic idealist,as she calls herself, do now? The coalition deal that initially brought Ardern to power put a brake on her ability to make good on her campaign promises during her first term. She struggled and failed to push through a capital gains tax, to build 100,000 affordable new homes and to reduce child poverty. Under pressure from farmers and her coalition partners in the right-wing New Zealand First, a much-vaunted zero carbon bill proved toothless:

Now having won this election outright, she and the Labour Party will have tabula rasa to enact more ambitious legislation. Some of those policies will now be less relevant, because of the economic ravages of the pandemic, but for others, especially those dealing with climate change, the timing could be right; a pandemic has a way of making people more aware of the cost of ignoring scientists’ warnings.:

In her victory speech Saturday, Ardern opened by highlighting the size of her victory, calling it New Zealand’s greatest support for the Labour Party in at least 50 years. Yet far from crowing about her new mandate, she pledged to use the majority to accelerate the economic recovery plan her government had already begun to implement.

” We will govern as we campaigned, positively with optimism about our future,” she said.

It was a signal that Ardern will prize stability over revolution, or even large policy initiatives. Rather than a capital gains tax, Ardern plans to increase the levy on those who earn more than NZ$180,000 ($120,000) a year, from 33% to 39%, not exactly a Swedish-level-rate. And rather than regulating emissions from farms, her government will reduce the country’s dependence on coal by outlawing certain kinds of coal fire boilers and making all public buses zero emissions:

Labour’s platform is full of worthy but small-ball initiatives—supporting small businesses, attracting overseas investment, increasing investment in educating young Kiwis for the trades and supporting high-end tourism—schemes not grand enough to spook investors. And indeed the stock and real estate markets, after dipping in March, are both going gangbusters. House prices usually fall before an election: they’ve climbed 7.6% in the last year.

These are all remarkably market-friendly initiatives from a leader who only a dozen years ago was the president of the International Union of Socialist Youth. “Despite the talk about well-being—and certainly the choice here was health before wealth— every single policy response has been about ‘growth’ and GDP, unless it has been a response from the [Green Party],” says Professor Dame Marilyn Waring, an economist, former National Party MP and ex-board member of the Reserve Bank of New Zealand, who adds that most of the ambition seems to reside in environmental protection measures. “Some long overdue conservation responses are now happening.”

Ironically Ardern may find her erstwhile political partners to be easier bedfellows than her own party. Large Labour Party caucuses can be rowdy, especially from the back benches. ”Because the Labour caucus does not allow any dissent once a policy is agreed, we will not have much creative imagination brought to the table,” says Waring, who adds that the Prime Minister may especially miss having the Greens in the room; one of the advantages of a coalition is that there is usually a surfeit of experience and a wider range of policy ideas being considered:

Ardern likes to say on the campaign trail that the first term was about laying foundations and this is the term in which her government can really build. But if she wants to get to the policies she holds most dear—child welfare and combating climate change—she might need to use her coalition-building skills to work within her own party.

(LOUISVILLE, K.Y.) US Labor Wage & Hour Division (WHD) Report: McDonald’s Franchise to Pay $16,994 Penalty After Child Labor Violations Found #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.17: After an investigation by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD), 4Bright Management LLC – operator of three Louisville, Kentucky-based McDonald’s franchise locations – will pay a civil money penalty of $16,994 for violating child labor requirements of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA): WHD investigators determined 4Bright Management violated child labor requirements by employing 14- and 15-year-olds to work outside of legally approved hours and for more hours than allowed by law:

https://dol.gov

Investigators found 62 minors worked more than three hours on a school day or more than eight hours on a non-school day; worked more than 18 hours per week during school weeks; and worked after 7 p.m. Labor Day through May 31 – all FLSA violations. 4Bright also employed 14- and 15-year-old employees to perform job duties prohibited by law for their age: The young workers operated deep-fat fryers that were not equipped with devices that automatically lowered and raised the baskets into and out of the hot oil:

“ Child labor laws exist to strike a balance between providing meaningful work experience for young people and keeping them safe on the job while not interfering with their educational opportunities,” said Wage and Hour Division District Director Karen Garnett-Civils, in Louisville, Kentucky. “We encourage all employers – especially those who employ minors – to review their employment obligations and to contact the Wage and Hour Division for compliance assistance. Employers can avoid violations like those found in this case.” WHD found the violations at three McDonald’s franchise locations in Louisville operated by 4Bright Management LLC, at 420 E. Market, 4940 Brownsboro Road and 5015 Shelbyville Road: The Department offers numerous resources to ensure employers have the tools they need to understand their responsibilities and to comply with federal law, such as online videos and confidential calls to local WHD offices:

For more information about child labor standards, the FLSA and other laws enforced by the Wage and Hour Division, contact the toll-free helpline at 866-4US-WAGE (487-9243). Employers that discover overtime or minimum wage violations may self-report and resolve those violations without litigation through the PAID program. Information is also available at https://ift.tt/3dqu3fa.

WHD’s mission is to promote and achieve compliance with labor standards to protect and enhance the welfare of the nation’s workforce. WHD enforces federal minimum wage, overtime pay, recordkeeping and child labor requirements of the Fair Labor Standards Act: WHD also enforces the paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave requirements of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, the Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection Act, the Employee Polygraph Protection Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, wage garnishment provisions of the Consumer Credit Protection Act and a number of employment standards and worker protections as provided in several immigration related statutes. Additionally, WHD administers and enforces the prevailing wage requirements of the Davis-Bacon Act and the Service Contract Act and other statutes applicable to federal contracts for construction and for the provision of goods and services:

The mission of the Department of Labor is to foster, promote and develop the welfare of the wage earners, job seekers and retirees of the United States; improve working conditions; advance opportunities for profitable employment; and assure work-related benefits and rights

‘ Coast Guard rescues 3 boaters off of Fire Island coast ‘

Once on-scene, the Station Fire Island boatcrew, as well as a two-person land team, evaluated the scene and determined that neither a water nor land-based rescue was feasible due to hazardous weather and surf conditions: A Coast Guard Air Station Atlantic City MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew was then launched to assist: The Dolphin crew arrived on scene and hoisted the boaters, who were wearing lifejackets, onboard and brought them to safety at Station Fire Island: The vessel remained at anchor and will be retrieved as soon as the weather allows: Sector Long Island Sound will continue to monitor the situation until the vessel is safely recovered:

” What started out in the early morning as a beautiful day for fishing offshore, very quickly deteriorated into hazardous weather conditions.” said Cmdr. Valerie Boyd, Response Chief at Coast Guard Sector Long Island Sound. “The seamless coordination by the command center, outstanding judgement and risk management demonstrated by the Station Fire Island crew, coupled with the fast response and expert technical ability of the MH-65 crew, prevented a dangerous situation from worsening and likely saved the lives of the persons on board the distressed vessel.”

Involved in the rescue were:

  • Coast Guard Station Fire Island 45-foot Response Boat-Medium boatcrew
  • Air Station Atlantic City MH-65 Dolphin aircrew
  • Suffolk County PD Marine Bureau
  • CG Auxiliary Aircraft
