In June, 2019, they blocked legislation requiring presidential campaigns to report offers from foreign government for election assistance to the FBI. Nope. Trump might have needed Putin, so no go there. They did it again a few months later, blocking three different bills that would have helped states beef up their security and try to limit foreign interference.They even blocked a bill sponsored by one of their own members, Sen. Marco Rubio, to deter foreign interference with the promise of harsh sanctions, and two more to boot.So spare us the scaremongering now, Rand and every other Republican. We dodged a bullet this time. States were able to mostly scrabble together their elections, and the fact that it was so hugely mail-in, the possibilities for Russian hacking were minimal. That’s no thanks at all to any Republican.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – After the pandemic hit, Democrats in the House and Senate tried to pass legislation to help states deal with what Paul and Republicans are screaming fraud over now—a massive wave of mail-in ballots spurred by voter safety concerns over COVID-19. That included funding specifically for risk-limiting audits, $20 million for it, in fact. Mitch McConnell wouldn’t even think about bringing that to the floor. Republicans called it part of her “liberal wish list.” Securing elections from the supposed “fraud” they’re now trying to hype.Before the pandemic, the issue that was topmost in was foreign election meddling. Special counsel Robert Mueller warned about it in the summer of 2019. FBI Director Christopher Wray warned about it earlier this year. But for a solid who years, McConnell and team had been fighting even modest efforts to prevent it.- Advertisement –

A first fund, intended to be launched in the middle of next year, would look to raise up to $1bn (€830m) followed by a carbon credit fund at up to $2bn, HSBC GAM said in a statement. HSBC intended to become a cornerstone investor in the first fund, the asset manager said.It said natural capital investing provided exposure to projects focused on nature, including sustainable forestry, regenerative and sustainable agriculture, water supply, blue carbon (carbon captured by oceans and coastal ecosystems), nature-based bio-fuels, or nature-based projects that generate returns from reducing greenhouse gas emissions.“To reach the goals set in the Paris Agreement we need to originate and fund new approaches that protect nature, at scale,” said Martijn Wilder AM, co-founding partner at Pollination.Nicolas Moreau, global CEO at HSBC Global Asset Management, added: “Clients are increasingly focused on environmental matters and this initiative is designed to help them achieve a financial return, while at the same time creating a positive impact on the world’s biodiversity which will be felt for generations to come.”The University of Cambridge’s programme for sustainability leadership has previously described natural capital as “an economic metaphor representing the stock of natural resources from which goods and services upon which human societies depend are derived”.Biodiversity has been rising up asset managers’ agenda. There is also now a drive to create a Task Force for Nature-related Financial Disclosures, à la Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures. HSBC Global Asset Management has entered into a joint venture with Pollination Group, a specialist climate change advisory and investment firm, to establish an asset manager dedicated to natural capital themes.The aim is for HSBC Pollination Climate Asset Management to be the world’s largest natural capital manager.Christof Kutscher will be named executive chairman of the joint venture, which those involved said was the first large-scale venture to “mainstream natural capital as an asset class”.The new asset manager will target institutional investors with funds investing in a diverse range of projects that will “preserve, protect and enhance nature over the long-term”.

Share Tweet Share Image via topnews.inGEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands (GIS) — As a regional outbreak persists, public health officials in the Cayman Islands have confirmed a local case of dengue fever, most probably imported from The Bahamas by a returning resident.This is the first dengue case reported in the Cayman Islands for 2011. Last year saw a total of seven confirmed cases (two imported and five with no travel history). In 2008 and 2009 there were only two imported cases each year.So far this year, Caribbean countries have reported 47 confirmed dengue fever cases, with the Bahamas and Aruba having especially high incidence rates, according to Pan American Health Organisation (PAHO) statistics. More than 1,000 cases with dengue-like symptoms were reported in the Bahamas.“With the current rash of cases in the region, medical personnel are on high alert to look for any local cases,” Medical Officer of Health Dr Kiran Kumar said.In this regard, the Public Health Department issued a travel advisory on 22 September as part of its heightened surveillance for local presence of the disease.“While dengue fever is not endemic to the Cayman Islands, as there is no sustained transmission of the disease, it is always wise to avoid mosquito bites by covering up at sunrise and sunset when the dengue carrier, the aedes aegyptii mosquito is the most active,” noted Kumar. “While we need to be alert, and take preventative measures, we need not be alarmed at one case. For aedes mosquito to transmit dengue, they must bite infected persons, otherwise they can’t,” he emphasized.He also reminded the public that they can help reduce the aedes aegyptii population locally, by clearing yards of containers that can hold water, as these are favourite breeding sites.

Indianapolis, In. — Since November 2017, the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) has been investigating an outbreak of acute hepatitis A virus (HAV). Cases have been infected with HAV strains genetically linked to outbreaks across the United States. Indiana has an average of 20 cases of hepatitis A per 12 month period.Indiana is one of 10 states experiencing a hepatitis A outbreak, and outbreak-related cases have been confirmed across the state. Information on other outbreaks can be accessed from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website. Transmission is presumed to occur person to person; no contaminated commercial food product has been identified. Based on CDC guidelines, populations who are homeless, transient, incarcerated or use illicit drugs and their close direct contacts are considered at increased risk of exposure to hepatitis A.To reduce the risk of hepatitis A transmission, people who have not received two doses of hepatitis A vaccine may ask their health care providers for protection. Additionally, always wash your hands with soap and water after going to the bathroom, after changing diapers and before preparing meals for yourself and others. Do not attend work or school if you are experiencing symptoms of hepatitis A, which include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, loss of appetite, tiredness, stomach ache, fever, dark-colored (cola) urine, light-colored stool and jaundice (yellowing of skin and eyes). Symptoms may take as many as 50 days from exposure to appear.As families prepare for the 2018-19 school year it’s important to check vaccination records. Recommended guidelines are here.

Solskjaer started with Marcus Rashford as the lone striker and it proved to be a tactical blunder by the Norwegian at the end as young England forward struggled on his own upfront.
