Italian vote spooks bonds

first_imgSunday 12 December 2010 11:09 pm THE prospect of political turmoil in Italy is spooking sovereign debt markets, pushing the yield on Italian bonds back towards the highs seen just before Ireland agreed to apply for a bailout.With Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi facing a no-confidence vote tomorrow after thousands came out in protest against him over the weekend, investors are ready to flee the peripheral Eurozone country.The yield on Italian 10-year bonds closed at 4.6 per cent on Friday, up 100 basis points in just over a week. Berlusconi could be toppled from power tomorrow after a run of scandals involving young women and charges of corruption, with his fate riding on a knife-edge vote in parliament.But his political opponents said that even if he wins the vote, his authority will not be secure. Gianfranco Fini, who withdrew his support from Berlusconi in July, said: “If the no confidence motion does not pass, we will have a government that’s just trying to survive. That’s not stability, that’s vegetating.”It means that he might have trouble pursuing the over-arching reforms required to improve Italy’s competitiveness and deal with its public debt.

Heart Walk to raise ‘funds for life’ Thursday

Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Published 10:36 pm Tuesday, February 26, 2019 Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson The AMA is saving lives every day but there are still too many people who die from heart disease, Phillips said. “The funds raised by the Pike County Heart Walk are used primarily for research into the treatments and cures for heart disease,” Phillips said. “The money we raise here in Pike County is sent to Nashville and only 7.7 percent goes to administrative expenses. The other percentage goes to research and other programs that help reduce the number of deaths from heart disease and stroke and to make life better for those who are living with heart conditions.”Phillips said those who are living with heart disease and stroke are benefitting from the research that has been done.“But we have to do our part,” Phillips said. “In 2008, I had a problem with my heart. My left ventricle was packed like cement and there was nothing that could be done. The feeder veins would have to take care of that problem. Then in 2010, I had two strokes and probably a third. Email the author I had to take better care of myself.”Phillips said the key to taking better care of himself goes back to the fork and knife.“A lot is determined by what you put on your plate, and exercise,” he said. “We have to do our part to be heart healthy.”And, those who attend the 2019 Pike County Heart Walk from 5 until 7 p.m. Thursday at the Troy Sportsplex will have opportunities to learn more about ways to prevent heart attacks and strokes, have blood pressure checks and visit with physicians who will answer questions about physical problems and concerns related to heart disease and stroke. Participants will also have the opportunity to make donations to the American Heart Association.The Pike County community can do something most important Thursday night by supporting the fight against heart disease and stroke, Phillips said.

California pair arrested in alleged PPE-selling scam amid coronavirus outbreak

first_imgJulia_Sudnitskaya/iStockBy AARON KATERSKY, ABC News(NEW YORK) — The latest COVID-19 fraud case involves two purported personal protection equipment (PPE) dealers who are under arrest in California on charges they tried to scam an investor out of millions of dollars.Donald Allen and Manuel Revolorio cast themselves as sellers of scarce protective equipment and tried to entice the investor with photographs of boxes of masks, according to federal prosecutors in Brooklyn, New York who brought the case. Allen and Revolorio created a website for their company, International Commerce and Investment Group, and claimed to have contracts and agreements to sell millions of masks that they didn’t actually own, according to the FBI.“The alleged behavior here is nothing short of a betrayal of fellow citizens — both those serving on the front lines, and the communities who need those essential workers able to safely serve,” said FBI Assistant Director Bill Sweeney.The investor, who was asked to wire $4 million, became suspicious and went to the authorities, according to the complaint. He then agreed to follow the instructions of the FBI when he went to inspect the merchandise, the complaint went on to say.“As alleged in the complaint, the defendants sought to take advantage of the urgent national need for life-saving personal protective equipment through a fraudulent scheme designed to line their own pockets,” said Richard Donoghue, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York.Allen, 62, of Riverside, California, and Revolorio, 37, of Rancho Cucamonga, face wire fraud charges.“The defendants in this case allegedly created an elaborate scam to defraud their victim, going as far as to wrap and label empty boxes and try to pass them off as containing actual personal protective equipment,” said COVID-19 Hoarding and Price Gouging Task Force head Craig Carpenito.

California bar owner busted for making phony vaccination cards: Investigators

first_imgCalifornia Alcohol Beverage Control(CLEMENTS, Calif.) — A bar owner in California was arrested this week for making fake IDs that had nothing to do with drinking, investigators said.The California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control announced on Wednesday that it arrested the owner of the Old Corner Saloon in Clements, California, allegedly for selling fraudulent COVID-19 vaccination cards.The department received a tip that Todd Anderson, 59, was making and selling the cards at his bar, which led to an undercover investigation, the agency said in a statement.Anderson was selling the cards for $20 apiece, authorities said. At least eight were sold before undercover agents, who said they purchased IDs at the bar “on multiple occasions in April,” shut down the operation. A laminating machine and 30 blank cards were confiscated.“It is disheartening to have members in our community show flagrant disregard for public health in the midst of a pandemic,” San Joaquin County District Attorney Tori Verber Salazar said in a statement. “Distributing, falsifying or purchasing fake COVID-19 vaccine cards is against the law and endangers yourself and those around you.”Anderson was charged with falsifying a medical record, falsifying a seal, several counts of identity theft and possession of a loaded, unregistered firearm, authorities said.It’s unclear whether Anderson has retained an attorney at this time.Investigators also said they’re seeking a criminal complaint against one of Anderson’s employees who may have been involved in the alleged operation.The FBI issued a warning in March over potentially fraudulent vaccination cards being sold.“By misrepresenting yourself as vaccinated when entering schools, mass transit, workplaces, gyms or places of worship,” the FBI said in a statement, “you put yourself and others around you at risk of contracting COVID-19.”Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

USS Curtis Wilbur Changes Command

first_img Authorities Share this article View post tag: USS Curtis Wilbur View post tag: Command September 7, 2015 View post tag: changescenter_img US Navy’s forward-deployed Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Curtis Wilbur (DDG 54) held a change of command ceremony Sept. 1.Cmdr. Amy Graham relieved Cmdr. Hans De For as Curtis Wilbur’s commanding officer during a ceremony on board Commander, Fleet Activities Yokosuka.While De For was in command, Curtis Wilbur reached a milestone for sustained readiness as it completed an Extended Dry-dock Selected Restricted Availability (EDSRA). The planned maintenance period was part of the DDG Modernization program and focused on mid-life upgrades to hull, mechanical and engineering systems. Lasting 335 days, it was the longest and most extensive overhaul in forward deployed naval forces (FDNF) history to date.Upon leaving the dry-dock, Curtis Wilbur’s schedule has been compressed with training events and inspections, making it operationally ready and prepared to provide maritime security to the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.As executive officer, Graham played a critical role in ensuring the ship returned to peak operational readiness after the maintenance availability period.Curtis Wilbur is one of seven Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyers assigned to Destroyer Squadron 15 to support security and stability in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.[mappress mapid=”16860″]Image: US Navy View post tag: asia USS Curtis Wilbur Changes Command Back to overview,Home naval-today USS Curtis Wilbur Changes Command last_img read more
