Greg Abbott lifts mandate, opens businessesTexas Governor Greg Abbott announced he is issuing an executive order lifting the mask mandate in Texas at an event in Lubbock yesterday, according to CNN.Abbott also announced that starting March 10, all businesses are allowed to open at 100% capacity.While health experts worry the new executive order will cause another rise in cases, Abbott said Texans have “mastered the daily habits to avoid getting COVID.”Many disagree with Abbott’s decision. In an official statement, Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo said, “Every time public health measures have been pulled back, we’ve seen a spike in hospitalizations.”Abbott’s executive order also addresses how county judges should handle the situation if COVID-19 worsens in their communities, but there will be no penalties for people who do not wear masks and a judge cannot put anyone in jail if they refuse to follow COVID-19 orders. Biden announces there should be enough vaccines for all adults by MayPresident Joe Biden speaks about efforts to combat COVID-19, in the State Dining Room of the White House, Tuesday, March 2, 2021, in Washington. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci)President Joe Biden announced there will be enough COVID-19 vaccines for all adults in the U.S. by the end of May, according to the Associated Press.Officials have said although more vaccines are being produced and delivered, it may take until the summer for all Americans to be vaccinated based on the pace of delivery rollouts and the willingness of citizens to get vaccinated.Pharmacies will receive more than 800,000 Johnson & Johnson vaccines this week in addition to the 2.4 million Pfizer and Moderna vaccines they will already be receiving.Biden has also begun pushing states to get teachers vaccinated by the end of March to hasten school openings.“Let’s treat in-person learning as the essential service that it is,” Biden said.Neera Tanden withdraws nomination to be director of budget officeThe White House pulled its nomination to make Neera Tanden director of President Biden’s budget office due to not being able to defeat bipartisan congressional opposition, according to the New York Times.Biden released a statement saying Tanden requested to be withdrawn from nomination. “I have the utmost respect for her record of accomplishment, her experience and her counsel,” Biden said. Biden also committed to finding another role in his administration for her.FILE – In this Feb. 10, 2021, file photo Neera Tanden, President Joe Biden’s nominee for Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), appears before a Senate Committee on the Budget hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington. (Anna Moneymaker/The New York Times via AP, Pool, File)Biden’s pick surprised many in both parties due to Tanden’s previous work with Hillary Clinton during her 2016 presidential campaign and her bipartisan criticism of certain legislators. Tanden’s chances at gaining support from most of the senators lessened after hearings held to speak about some of Tanden’s social media posts.“I believe her overtly partisan statements will have a toxic and detrimental impact on the important working relationship between members of Congress and the next director of the Office of Management and Budget,” West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin said prior to the withdrawal.Following Tanden’s withdrawal from the nomination, officials are now expecting Biden to nominate Shalanda Young, who previously served as the staff director of the House Appropriations Committee.No evidence of ANTIFA at Capitol assaultFBI Director Christopher Wray testified in front of Congress, expressing distress over the events of Jan. 6.“That attack, that siege was criminal behavior, plain and simple and his behavior that we, the FBI, view as domestic terrorism,” Wray said according to ABC News.Wray said the bureau has arrested more than 270 suspects that were involved in the insurrection and the majority could be labeled as “militia violent extremists.” Currently, there is currently no proof that any of them were ANTIFA members.When Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar asked Wray if he believed the FBI could have done more prior to the attack, Wray answered, “I do not consider what happened on Jan. 6 to be an acceptable result, and that’s why we’re looking so hard at figuring out how the process can be improved.” ReddIt Iris Lopezhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/iris-lopez/ Iris Lopez Facebookcenter_img What we’re reading: Former Vice President dies at 93, Chad President killed on frontlines What we’re reading: Chauvin found guilty in Floyd case, Xi to attend Biden’s climate change summit Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature Linkedin Twitter Twitter + posts ReddItlast_img read more

first_imgEmail Advertisement WhatsApp Twitter Facebook Printcenter_img NewsBreaking newsIllegal loan shark was claiming social welfare while making €150,000 profitBy admin – December 23, 2013 1083 Linkedin by Andrew CareySign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up [email protected] LOAN shark, who made €150,000 from moneylending and boasted to Gardaí that he never failed to collect a debt, was found to be claiming social welfare.Ray McInerney (38) of Rhebogue Hill, Rhebogue, Limerick pleaded guilty to illegal moneylending on dates between the January 1, 2010 and July 9, 2012.Limerick Circuit Court heard that McInerney, who was unemployed and claiming benefit, had “little difficulty in making threats of a serious nature”.Judge Carroll Moran was told that he loaned one customer €20,000 and demanded that €26,000 be repaid. The loan was repaid after the man took out a €7,000 credit union loan to clear the debt and he thought that would be the end of the matter.However, McInerney threatened the customer’s son with a “barrage of calls and texts” and threatened to kill or seriously harm him on November 5, 2011. He also pleaded guilty to persistently telephoning the victim on 49 occasions over a three week period.State prosecutor John O’Sullivan said the calls were “sinister and disturbing.”Detective Garda Pauraic O’Dwyer of Roxboro Garda Station said McInerney’s motivation for the persistent harassment was to exert control over his borrowers. Over €400,000 passed through his bank account between March 2005 and February 2012 when he was unemployed.During a Garda interview, he said that he never failed to collect on a loan and made about €150,000 in profit.€10,000 was seized from a bank account by the Criminal Assets Bureau and a “tick list” was found in a urinal in an en-suite bathroom at his house.Defence counsel Brian McInerney said that during the course of his lending, Ray McInerney had over 40 satisfied clients. He now wished to apologise and express his “deep regrets” for his actions.Sentencing was adjourned until January 17 to allow the court consider the matter.

Bears Bees + Brews: An Exciting Movement for Wildlife

first_imgWhen you think of black bears, what comes to mind for you?  Some may think of a large, wild creature raiding neighborhood trash cans while others may recall a charming sighting of a mama bear with her adorable cubs during a childhood camping trip.  Bears Bees + Brews Festival Local resident Roni Hidalgo moved to Asheville close to 5 years ago.  She soon became enamoured by the beautiful lush surroundings of Western North Carolina, but it was not long after her move that she noticed entire forests being cut down to make room for development.  This ignited a sense of urgency to get the community involved to help sustain the region’s biodiversity.   There is little doubt bears are amazing creatures.  They can walk around on two legs, communicate via scratching marks on trees, and eat what we eat. But did you know they are also of utmost importance to the environment?  Even the performers are lovers of nature, of our mountains, and wildlife. Tyler Ramsey, former lead guitarist of Band of Horses, will headline the festival along with Dave (an avid beekeeper) and Andrea of Cicada Rhythm and The Moon and You.  Bees and other pollinators are also necessary to maintain healthy ecosystems. It is estimated one third of the food we consume daily relies on pollinators.  Sadly, the bee population is declining due to the use of harmful pesticides. If the honeybee population were to disappear entirely, it would result in a serious impact on our health and nutrition.  To learn more visit BearsBeesBrews.com or @bearsbeesbrews on Facebook and Instagram. The Black Bear is an apex predator, which is a kind of predator that is placed on top of the food chain.  This does not mean they are scary, dangerous beasts. In fact, they are very solitary animals. As an apex predator, black bears are vital to a healthy ecosystem, and healthy ecosystems are  important to a healthy society.  Why Are Bears + Bees Important?  “Collaborating with these organizations helps us in our mission to educate the community,” Hidalgo says. center_img The culmination of this year’s work for Bears Bees + Brews will take place at a free wildlife conservation festival on Saturday, October 19, from 12-5pm at New Belgium Brewery.  Attending this family-friendly festival is a great way to show your support for wildlife and habitat conservation and their efforts.  Every organization, business and volunteer involved recognize how important it is to create a conservation celebration in Asheville and Western North Carolina right now.  She founded Bears Bees + Brews, a project that seeks to inspire people and raise awareness about wildlife conservation in a fun, exciting and interactive way.   “Raising awareness is key,” Hidalgo says. “But doing it in fun, inspiring ways will help people interpret and digest information more effectively and want to share it with others.”  Bears Bees + Brews produces festivals and events to create a safe space for friends and families to have fun while having access to policy makers and wildlife experts to learn more about sustaining wildlife, habitat and lands. The project collaborates with other organizations such as Wildlands Network, Center for Honeybee Research and NPCA. For residents of Western North Carolina, bear sightings are quite common throughout the region. In fact, it is estimated that 100 to 200 black bears live among Asheville’s population of 90,000 people.  Oftentimes, bears show up in our neighborhoods in search of food because their natural habitats are being threatened by the increase in urban development. Most negative bear encounters can be prevented with the right education, a mission that one Asheville resident took upon herself to fulfill.   A Movement for Wildlife Conservation last_img read more
