National veterans council takes aim at Liberals pensionforlife plan

first_imgOTTAWA – The Trudeau Liberals are going into the second half of their mandate facing anger from many disabled veterans over what some are calling a betrayal: the government’s new pension plan for those injured while in uniform.The National Council of Veteran Associations, which represents more than 60 veteran groups, has become the latest to come out against the pension plan, which Veterans Affairs Minister Seamus O’Regan unveiled before Christmas.The new scheme was intended to fulfil the Liberals’ campaign promise to reinstate lifelong pensions for disabled veterans, which were replaced in 2006 with a lump-sum payment and other targeted financial assistance.But while the government says its plan will provide disabled veterans with more compensation, the council said its analysis had found most injured ex-soldiers would not see any real benefit.That means the financial disparity between veterans injured before and after 2006 — the source of much anger for many veterans — will continue to persist, said council chairman Brian Forbes.“I can’t find too many illustrations of anyone who comes close to what they would have received under the Pension Act, even with these new enhancements,” said Forbes, who is also executive director of The War Amps Canada.“So if you were injured in 2003 in Afghanistan as opposed to being injured in 2007 with the same disability, you have significantly different financial benefits. How is that acceptable? Same war, same conflict, different benefits.”Many veterans voted for the Liberals in the last election expecting that disparity to be addressed, either through reinstatement of the previous pension system or dramatically increased benefits, including to those who are moderately injured.O’Regan acknowledged when he rolled out the pension plan Dec. 20 that it would not please everyone, and veterans have not shied away from expressing their anger and disappointment on social media.But the fact one of Canada’s largest veterans’ organizations has come out against the scheme is noteworthy, particularly as federal political parties begin making plans for the 2019 federal election.A spokesman for O’Regan defended the new plan on Monday, saying it would provide more money to all disabled veterans, and asserting that the old pensions did not provide enough support.“With the exception of the most seriously disabled, the rates were insufficient to support veterans who were struggling to re-establish into their post-service life,” Alex Wellstead said in an email.“Additionally, the Pension Act did not offer rehabilitation, education or transitional support. Under that system, veterans faced challenges successfully transitioning to life after service.”The Liberals were the only party to promise to reinstate lifelong pensions for disabled veterans during the election.That promise raised expectations during the campaign, said Forbes, leaving many veterans who voted Liberal to feel “betrayed” by the new plan because it doesn’t measure up to the commitment.“Mr. Trudeau knew exactly what he was doing. He knew this was a sore point, that the Conservative party had let the veterans’ side down and he was going to basically create a solution,” he said.“It’s fair to say the disappointment (with the new plan) has been immense because it just didn’t do the trick.”The new pension plan won’t come into effect until April 2019, and Forbes urged the government to use the intervening time to adopt the recommendations made by a ministerial advisory group in October 2016.Those include relaxing the criteria that injured veterans must meet to access some financial assistance and including more money for those with families and needing help at home.If not, he warned, the Liberals could face consequences at the ballot box.“As a political matter, it’s hard to imagine the prime minister and his party wanting to go into the next election without satisfying the expectation here,” Forbes said.“If you’re going to make a promise to provide lifetime pensions, then do it.”— Follow @leeberthiaume on Twitterlast_img read more

Mauritanian leader set to win new term amid poll boycott

Nouakchott – Mauritanians on Saturday cast ballots in a presidential election that incumbent Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz was expected to win handily as main opposition rivals boycotted the vote in the largely desert nation.The ex-army general, who seized power in the northwest African nation in a August 2008 coup, has campaigned strongly on his success in fighting armed groups linked to Al-Qaeda at home and in neighbouring Sahel nations.Small queues snaked outside several polling stations in the capital Nouakchott before voting got underway at 0700 GMT. One 70-year old voter, who gave his name as Brahim, said the country, wracked by jihadist violence up until 2010, “had found peace.”“That’s important and I want it to continue because peace is irreplaceable.”Kidnappings and attacks by Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) were frequent when Abdel Aziz came to power, but he boasts he has turned his nation into a regional haven of peace thanks to his reorganisation of the military and security forces.“The first point where Abdel Aziz’s success is undeniable is indeed that of security and stability in the country, driving away the spectre of the terrorist threat,” said Mohamed Fall Ould Oumeire, managing editor of the daily La Tribune.The mainly Muslim republic, sandwiched between the west coast of Africa and the Sahara desert, is seen by Western leaders as a bulwark against Al-Qaeda-linked groups.In 2010 and 2011, Mauritanian troops carried out successful “preventative” raids on AQIM bases in neighbouring Mali, before the armed fundamentalists could carry out planned attacks on Mauritania.Abdel Aziz has also been heavily involved as head of the African Union in efforts to end conflict in neighbouring Mali, which lost half its territory to Islamic extremists in 2012, prompting a French intervention to free the towns.He has also mediated between separatist Tuareg rebels and the government in Bamako.– ‘Electoral sham’ –But opposition critics argue that the price of peace has been authoritarian rule and have decided to boycott a vote that they regard as an “electoral sham” over the way it is being organised.Main opposition parties have never accepted Abdel Aziz’s 2009 victory in an election they said was marred by massive fraud.The ruling Union for the Republic (UPR) won a large majority in parliamentary and local elections last year, which were also boycotted by the opposition.The National Forum for Democracy and Unity (FNDU) — an opposition coalition of 11 parties including a moderate Islamist movement — has rallied to denounce Abdel Aziz’s “dictatorial power” and are counting on a high abstention rate.Abdel Aziz will face four challengers who have highlighted many of the country’s sensitive issues such as complex race relations between black Mauritanians and the dominant Arabs.The only candidate from the black African south is Ibrahima Moctar Sarr, who argues that non-Arab Mauritanians are “marginalised and victims of injustice”.Another contender is Biram Ould Dah Ould Abeid, who heads a movement to end slavery which, while officially abolished in 1981, persists as a deeply entrenched practice documented by rights groups.Himself a descendant of slaves, Ould Abeid proclaims himself “the sole candidate drawn from disadvantaged levels of the people”.Abdel Aziz’s spokesman El-Houssein Ould Ahmed El-Hadi has hit back against “racist and communitarian speeches harmful to national unity”, without directly naming any of the candidates.The only female candidate is Lalla Mariem Mint Moulaye Idriss, 57, who has held several administrative posts and seeks support from fellow women and the youth.While the country, which is nearly as big as Egypt, remains poor, it boasted a growth rate of of six percent in 2013. Mauritania has produced oil since 2006 and is rich in iron ore as well as fish caught off its Atlantic coastline. read more

British rover will go to Mars despite worrying crash landing says European

first_imgThe Schiaparelli probe crashed on Mars in November  The Schiaparelli probe crashed on Mars in November  Experts have said lessons would be learned from the loss, caused by a glitch that meant the probe sensed it had landed when still more than a mile above the planet’s surface.The Trace Gas Orbiter spacecraft which carried Schiaparelli to Mars is said to be functioning well. Next year it will start sniffing the planet’s atmosphere for trace gases including methane, which may indicate the presence of life.David Parker, the agency’s director of human spaceflight and robotic exploration, said: “The UK has provided the amount of funding requested for the space station and indeed has made some indications about longer term commitment as well, so it was positive.“The UK has to pay its way on the ISS to have any hope of another British astronaut following in the footsteps of Tim Peake.” A European mission to land a rover on Mars will go ahead despite a test run ending in failure last month.The European Space Agency (Esa) announced on Friday that member states had agreed to provide the 440 million euro (£370 million) needed to ensure the future of ExoMars Rover, which is currently being built at Airbus in Stevenage.The future of the project looked in doubt after a probe designed to make a test landing on the Red Planet crashed into the surface in November.However European science ministers decided to back the mission at a pivotal Esa council meeting in Lucerne, Switzerland.The space agency’s director general, Jan Woerner, said: “Today I am very confident that we will do it … We need to work hard because it’s not only some rover, we have the payloads from different sources – all of this has to pack together.”It’s not an easy thing, but we are confident that we will succeed.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Southeast students explore careers to meet Alaskas behavioral health needs

first_imgHolli Davis came to a behavioral health camp in Juneau the week of of Jan. 28, 2019, hoping to get “more of a clear vision” of a career in social work. (Photo by Zoe Grueskin/KTOO)High school students from around Southeast Alaska met in Juneau last week to explore careers in behavioral health. The state has a shortage of workers in these fields, and there’s a push to recruit Alaskans to come back after college and do those jobs in their home communities. Holli Davis is a senior at Petersburg High School. She’s been thinking a lot about what she’d like to do in the future, and right now she’s considering social work. She wants to work with kids.“Being in Petersburg, you know a lot about kids and their upbringing in life,” she said. “And sometimes you know know they didn’t have a good upbringing, and I kind of just want to help them out.”Along with 18 other teens from the region, Davis spent a week in Juneau for Behavioral Health Career Connections, a program for students to learn more about careers in behavioral health. The field includes jobs like counselors, psychiatrists, social workers — anyone who works with mental health or addiction.The students took field trips and got to talk with professionals during their time in the state capital. They also did an eight-hour, hands-on training to get certified in mental health first aid, so they’re now better-equipped to help someone struggling with anything from a panic attack or suicidal thoughts to substance withdrawal. Thanks to a federal grant through the Carl D. Perkins Act, the whole program was free.Joan Pardes is the director of the Southeast Alaska Area Health Education Center, which organized the week-long event.“The goal of this program is to really pull back the curtain of behavioral health careers,” said Pardes, adding she hoped it would show students that these are achievable — and often well-paid — career options.It’s part of a larger mission to support more health care workers in Alaska — especially in rural and underserved areas, where there aren’t enough providers to meet communities’ needs. According to the Alaska Division of Public Health, that’s true in most of the state.Sahara Kilic hoped the behavioral health camp that began Jan. 28, 2019 in Juneau would help her turn her interest in post-traumatic stress disorder into a career plan. (Photo by Zoe Grueskin/KTOO)Sahara Kilic has seen it firsthand in Skagway. She plans to attend college out-of-state in the fall, but she said she can see herself coming home.“You can definitely see the deficit that we have. We barely have any health care workers here in the state,” Kilic said, “and I feel like helping my community is a good thing, so I’d wanna come back and help them.”Andy Jones, director of the state’s Office of Substance Misuse and Addiction Prevention, said it’s encouraging to see the students so engaged. He talked to the group about the opioid epidemic.Jones said he loves working with students because they’re not afraid to ask tough questions, like how does someone getting out of prison find a place in a small community? And how should the community respond?“These are big questions that professionals are asking,” Jones said. “So by them asking that at such a young age, I have a lot of hope for the future.”The students have a lot of hope, too. But right now, first thing’s first: figuring out college. Both Davis and Kilic came to the program in Juneau with questions about scholarships and what to study.Davis is also planning to leave Alaska for school. But she said she loves Petersburg, and she has a feeling she’ll be back.Andy Jones, director of the state of Alaska’s Office of Substance Misuse and Addiction Prevention, talked about the opioid epidemic with teens at a behavioral health camp in Juneau on Jan. 29, 2019.

The Infamous Tylenol Murders Forever Changed the Way we Take Medicine

first_imgYou don’t hear about it much anymore, but an unsolved series of murders in 1982 changed the way people take medicine and changed their thoughts about how safe they were in the comfort of their own homes. In Chicago that year, seven people died from ingesting Tylenol which had been laced with cyanide. In the following years, copycat crimes claimed the lives of seven more people throughout the United States. In only one case, in Washington state in 1987, was someone accused of a crime and convicted.The “Tylenol Murders” panicked the nation, much like the case of George Metesky, the “Mad Bomber” in New York in the 1940s and 50s, when Metesky, a disgruntled man with a host of mental issues, left bombs in random locations throughout New York City, injuring 15 people. In 1982, no one was sure whether the medicine they opened would be the death of them or a cure.PillsThe Tylenol case began when a 12-year-old girl, Mary Kellerman, from the Chicago suburb of Elk Grove, went to her parents very early in the morning on September 29, 1982, feeling ill. They gave her one extra-strength Tylenol. By 7 am, Mary was dead.The same day claimed a second victim, 27-year-old Adam Janus who also lived in the Chicago suburbs. He was found dead in his house of what was initially believed to be a massive heart attack. His brother and sister-in-law sped to his home to console Adam’s family, and, likely due to the stress of the situation, developed headaches. They each took one Tylenol from the same bottle that Adam had used. Stanley died shortly after, and Theresa two days later.Over the next few days, three more people died under strange circumstances: like Mary Kellerman and Adam Janus, they were all under 35 and in relatively good health. Police soon tied the deaths together: they all had ingested Tylenol pills that had been laced with potassium cyanide.ChicagoIn 1980s Chicago, no one was thinking cyanide. Why would they? But the local police quickly began to put the pieces together and issued warnings for people in the Chicago area not to take Tylenol.McNeil Consumer Products, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson which made the pain killer, went on media both local and nationwide and issued a recall of all Tylenol products. This meant 31 million bottles of the drug.Just before the murders, Tylenol was considered almost a wonder drug for headaches and other minor maladies and took up 35 percent of the over the counter market. After the deaths, sales of Tylenol counted for just 8 percent – a huge hit in profit.Mosquito cyanide jarOver the next few weeks, other bottles that were tainted were found in Chicago grocery stores and pharmacies. Fortunately, no other deaths were attributed to poisoned Tylenol. In response to the deaths, Johnson & Johnson introduced what we now take for granted: the “tamper-proof” top under the lid of all medicines.Related Video: The gruesome reasons behind the Red, White and Blue barber poleOther drug companies followed suit (some slowly), no one knowing if they were immune or the next target for a murderer still at large, or others. Other changes took place which we now take for granted. The easy to swallow “caplet”? A result of murder, the caplet being harder to penetrate than a capsule or standard pill (the medicine ingested by the victims had been in capsule form: someone opened them, added cyanide, closed them up and closed the bottle).Despite a nationwide manhunt, no one was ever caught. One person, James Lewis, claimed to be the killer, and wrote a “ransom” type letter, threatening to kill more people unless he received $1 million. An investigation of his movements showed that he could not have been the killer. However, he did serve over a decade in prison on extortion charges.In 1983 Congress passed the “Tylenol bill” which made it a federal offense to tamper with medicine or any other consumer products. As a matter of fact, not only did medical companies install tamper-proof seals, but other businesses, most notably food companies, began to put a seal on many of their products. That annoying seal on the ketchup and mustard? A direct reaction to the Tylenol murders of 1982. Greater controls on deadly poisons in veterinary hospitals, research facilities, etc., followed as well.8 hour pills. Photo by Deborah Austin CC BY 2.0The only conviction regarding medicine tampering deaths came in 1987 when an unhappy and unstable housewife killed her husband with tainted Excedrin tablets. Not only her husband but another woman (unrelated to the married couple in any way) died from ingesting the tablets.To this day, no one has ever been charged for the crime. Police believe the poison was added after the drug left the factory. They believe the killer took (or bought) the drugs, introduced the poison, then returned the pills to the shelf. That’s about all they know.Read another story from us: Radium used to be All the Rage – Until the Devastating Case of the ‘Radium Girls’For a time in 1982, people were leery about almost everything they bought. Macabre jokes made the rounds. Johnson & Johnson lost millions, but they way in which they handled the crisis was a model of how to handle a bad situation, rather than what we so often read about – like the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, for example. In business schools around the world, Johnson & Johnson’s handling of the situation is taught as a model.last_img read more

Nations Big Four Banks Sign Up for HARP Expansion

Others adopted a wait-and-see approach, citing the need for more information from the FHFA.””We’re waiting for the specific guidelines from Fannie and Freddie, which we don’t expect for a couple of weeks,”” “”Tom Goyda””:, a spokesperson for Wells Fargo, tells _MReport_. “”Once we have those, we’ll need to make adjustments for the system. It will take some time after that to finalize and implement the changes.””The FHFA plans to issue guidance related to the HARP changes in November.center_img October 28, 2011 452 Views Nation’s Big Four Banks Sign Up for HARP Expansionlast_img read more

The Impact of Mortgages on MSR Values

first_img Fannie Mae Freddie Mac Ginnie Mae MSR 2018-09-11 Seth Welborn Rising mortgage rates are impacting the mortgage servicing rights (MSR) values negatively according to  MountainView Financial Solutions’ webinar covering its MSR Asset Monthly Snapshot. Hosted by Mark Garland, Managing Director, Analytics; Mike Riley, Managing Director, Analytics; and Matt Maurer, Managing Director, Business Development, the webinar looked at the latest trends in and valuations in MSR.“Obviously, our biggest story here is the change in rates,” said Riley. He noted that mortgage spread valuations had increased slightly, negatively impacting MSR values. Additionally, he notes that the last day of the month was very choppy, as there was a lot of rate movement between 2 pm and 5 pm ET.Garland discussed MSR pricing, and the data sources MSR assumptions and values are derived from. On source discusses was servicing market activity, and Garland states that many would say “this is the only source that matters” when it comes to MSR value. However, he notes that although it is very relevant, market service activity can be difficult to translate and can often be thin and only represent a small number of buyers at a time. Additionally, market pricing might not actually represent buyers’ view of risk and reward and might not represent an exit price.Also discussed was portfolio performance. Things that should be tracked in a portfolio include cost to service and custodial float options, but according to MountainView, it is incredibly important to measure how your portfolio measures up against the rest of the nation.FICO rates were covered as well, as low FICO rates go into delinquency really quickly, and low FICO borrowers tend to go into default faster.MountainView discussed recent MSR market activity, including three deals totaling $3.6 billion of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and Ginnie Mae servicing scheduled to close. In addition, MountainView has six deals totaling $7.8 billion of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and Ginnie Mae servicing scheduled to close in late October/early November.MSR demand is high, especially in California, according to Maurer, but some buyers are still holding out for higher rates. MountainView expects reduced volumes to lead to reduced supply in the year, even as buyer appetite outpaces supply.In the Ginnie Mae market, non-banks are expected to have a $5 billion to $8 billion per month supply, compared to $0 to $5 billion for banks. Low FICO Ginnie Mae servicing is in high demand, due to expected delinquencies.“Understanding (or lack of understanding) of credit risk on lower FICO GNMAs may determine the longevity of several GNMA issuers,” said Maurer. MountainView states that today’s “hot hand” market could cool off tomorrow as buyers take turns on top bids.“It’s why we believe in auctions because you never know,” said Maurer. “In a conventional deal, we might have 15, 16 targets. We never know who’s going to be the high bid.”Contact MountainView for more information.
