Is Sadiq Khan right to refuse to expand London’s congestion charge zone?

first_imgIf you underprice a scarce resource, you’ll get shortages. That was true for bread under communism, gasoline under Nixon, and it is true for London’s congested roads today. Average road speeds in central London are just 7.4 miles per hour. In Singapore, where they charge for road use, average speeds are over 20mph.  Expansion to the North and South Circular roads would help motorists by reducing congestion and speeding up travel times. Buses would become faster and more reliable too. That, plus increased demand from ex-motorists unwilling to pay the new charge, would allow for more extensive and regular bus services across the city.

Main image credit: Getty Share Expanding the congestion charge to the North and South Circular roads would affect four million Londoners. It would be crippling for families across London who are already struggling. While so many are fighting for their livelihoods during this pandemic, an expansion to the congestion charge could be a death knell for jobs and businesses.  whatsapp Tags: People Sadiq Khan But despite the government giving billions to private rail companies with no strings attached, it seems ministers will only offer TfL financial support on the condition that the congestion charge zone is extended, fares and council tax are hiked, and free travel for under-18s and over-60s is scrapped.

When Boris Johnson was mayor of London he promised Londoners: “I am not going to be having any more congestion charges”.

Listen: A COVID-19 vaccine is on the horizon but Alaska faces unique challenges

first_imgCoronavirus | State GovernmentListen: A COVID-19 vaccine is on the horizon but Alaska faces unique challengesNovember 17, 2020 by Casey Grove, Alaska Public Media Share:This scanning electron microscope image shows, in yellow, SARS-CoV-2 — the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 — isolated from a patient in the U.S., emerging from the surface of cells, in blue and pink, cultured in a lab. (Image courtesy of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases – Rocky Mountain Laboratories)Alaska health officials have had a keen eye on the development of a coronavirus vaccine. That includes recent news from Pfizer and Moderna that each of the pharmaceutical companies’ candidate vaccines are better than 90% effective.And while that’s some very good news at a time when case counts are skyrocketing, there will be challenges with getting the vaccine to people, especially in rural areas like those in Alaska.Tessa Walker Linderman is a member of the state’s COVID-19 Vaccination Plan Task Force. She says it’s possible that if everything goes perfectly, the earliest the vaccine might show up in Alaska is mid-December.Audio Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Full transcript of Alaska Public Media’s Casey Grove’s interview with Tessa Walker Linderman, a member of Alaska’s COVID-19 Vaccination Plan Task Force.Tessa Walker Linderman: We do have some indication of what the timeline may be just knowing the process for FDA approval. Both Moderna and Pfizer have talked about their timelines. And I think very best case scenario, we’d be looking at mid-December. But again, that means if … everything happens perfectly on time, and they get immediate approval, and they’re able to get recommendations from the CDC quickly. So I would say in the best case scenario, we’re looking at mid-December for a very, very limited amount of vaccine coming into Alaska.CG: One thing that’s come up with at least this Pfizer vaccine is that it sounds like it needs to be stored at very cold temperatures like negative 70 degrees Celsius. That seems like a challenge just to get it to Alaska. But then also, we have rural areas that are going to need this vaccine. And I wonder, are you starting to think about how that would work?We are. The Pfizer vaccine is a fairly complicated vaccine, just as you said it needs to be stored in negative 60 to negative 80 degrees Celsius. Fortunately, we do know that it can be in refrigerated temperature 2 degrees to 8 degrees Celsius for five days. And so our stabilization program is working through the logistics of that of transferring it from the ultracold to a refrigerated shipper. And by the time they get the vaccine, you know, potentially a few days maybe lost just because of travel. And so really trying to work with communities to think through vaccinating in 72 hours, what they what they’re able to do. And then what I just keep trying to reiterate is, you get that first amount and you vaccinate the identified population. But we are anticipating that we will be receiving vaccine on a fairly regular basis once it’s approved. They’re just going to continue manufacturing it and sending it out. So we’re really utilizing the same system that we use for all vaccines in Alaska through our immunization program.CG: Generally, do we have enough people to do the vaccinating?So that is a great question. And we are working around the clock to get providers enrolled into the COVID vaccine program. And we are really especially partnering with pharmacies to be able to provide vaccine. They are in the communities they have, you know the knowledge and the skillset and are really seem eager to participate in this effort. We’re also working with community health centers to be vaccination sites. And then …. even though children are not able to actually receive at least its initial vaccines – we don’t have enough data yet for children – we’re even seeing pediatrician offices and other nontraditional vaccinators that just want to be a part of the solution and are asking or enrolling and saying ‘What can we do? How can we help?’ So we do feel good about where we’re at in terms of providers.CG: The vaccine stimulates your body to make just the proteins of the Coronavirus, and then your body learns its immune system learns to deal with the Coronavirus after that. But that sounds kind of complicated. And I guess how do you convince people to get it? And how do you convince people that maybe think that this is some kind of a conspiracy or something? How do you convince them to get it?That’s a really great question, we get that a lot. And, you know, even for myself as a healthcare professional, and I’ve been following this the whole time and I still I want to see the clinical trial data, I want to see what the FDA and CDC say once they review all of the information. I don’t think anyone should go into it blindly. But we do know vaccine is coming. And I’m hoping that it will clearly be a safe and effective vaccine. We want to be ready to be able to distribute and give vaccine to as many people who would like to get it. And so we’re planning into that void right now, since we don’t know everything about the vaccine, but we’re planning and anticipating that we will get the information that we need. But certainly, we have a communications and education team completely focused on this, on being able to help educate the public and just understanding what all of the information means that that does come out. But we’re still waiting for that. But we will certainly be on top of that. Because I know even all of us that are working closely on this effort, we would like to see what really comes out of the trials, before we take it.CG: All of this kind of makes me think of the end of the movie “Contagion” where they like, have the vaccine in their hands. And it’s very celebratory, it’s like this thing is over. But that also means just a movie. And so I wonder, what do you think that’s going to be like is it going to be like that celebratory feel are we going to have to carry on with other precautions and it’s not really over at that point.Well I think we’ll certainly celebrate when the vaccine, it does arrive. But yes, that’s just the first step in really getting to the end of the pandemic, there will still need to be mask-wearing and social distancing. We won’t be able to vaccinate everyone on day one. So it will just be a process and we’ll still need to be cognizant that there are people who have not been vaccinated. So we certainly will continue encouraging other public health measures to reduce the spread of COVID while we are working to get as many people vaccinated as we’d like to get it.Share this story:last_img read more

Exhibit: Paris Life & Luxury At The Getty

first_imgUncategorizedExhibit: Paris Life & Luxury At The GettyBy Kari Mozena – April 29, 2011288ShareEmailFacebookTwitterPinterestReddItIf you like costume dramas you’ll get the vapors wandering through the gilded objects in the J. Paul Getty Museum’s Paris: Life & Luxury exhibit. They’ve assembled all the accoutrements that well-heeled 18th century Parisians used in their daily lives, arranged from la toilette to dinner to the evening’s entertainment. The museum held an extremely well-attended opening this week where patrons lingered in the main lobby amid tureens of lobster bisque and towers of profiteroles. I wound my way through the tea services, paintings, writing desks, and clothing only to turn a corner and run into Louis XIV himself, actor Julian Sands (he played the monarch in the flick Vatel). He ruined me forever with Room With A View. I blame him and Helena Bonham Carter for my limited taste in movies now. I’ll watch any costume drama (many times in some cases), no matter how awful. Sands has been out and about a lot this month and the moment I happened upon him, he was chatting with his companion about rococo. It happens. Going down the steps from the gallery I got to thinking what would my day look like if immortalized in a museum years from now? My toilette? A television turned to The Today Show while I put on Bare Minerals in the morning followed by a box of cherry Pop Tarts. Take that Marie Antoinette. The exhibit is now open and runs until August 7.   TAGS2011April 2011L.A.

AIMCo to get piece of US$219 million legal settlement

first_img Bitcoin surge doesn’t affect damages, B.C. court says Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Court approves data breach settlements with BMO, CIBC A U.S. insurance company has agreed to pay US$219 million to end a class action lawsuit for allegedly making false and misleading statements about a group that includes the Alberta Investment Management Corp. The agreement in principle from Genworth Financial requires approval from a U.S. district court in Virginia, where the insurance company has its head office. Related news Keywords Lawsuits Universal life policies can’t be used for unlimited deposits, appeal court rules Edmonton-based AIMCo — which invests on behalf of 26 pension, endowment and government funds in Alberta — was one of the lead plaintiffs in the suit, along with the California-based Fresno County Employees’ Retirement Association. The plaintiffs argued that Genworth’s executives and financial statements had failed to properly disclose information before the company announced in November 2014 that it would need to shore up its long-term care insurance business. The announcement of the $531-million accounting charge was followed by a substantial drop in the value of Genworth stock held by AIMCo and other investors. The Virginia-based insurance company continues to say the claims against it are without merit but has agreed to make the payment to avoid the cost and risk of continuing the battle in court.

Renewed calls for Climate Levy on Fossil Fuel Exports as Black Summer Disaster Bill Soars

first_imgRenewed calls for Climate Levy on Fossil Fuel Exports as Black Summer Disaster Bill Soars In the lead-up to Summer, the Australia Institute, emergency leaders, and bushfire survivors have renewed coals for a Climate Levy on fossil fuel exports to help pay for increasing disasters due to climate change.The call follows estimates that the Black Summer bushfires cost Australians over $50 billion, which represents a step change in disaster costs. The previous most costly climate related disasters in Australia were the 2011 Queensland floods which are estimated to have cost $14 billion, followed by the Victorian Black Saturday bushfires in 2009 which cost $7 billion.Key Findings:Natural disasters exacerbated by climate change such as fires, floods and heatwaves already cost Australians tens of billions of dollars per annum. This damage bill is rapidly increasing as climate change accelerates.Ordinary Australian households and businesses, either as a direct expense or via taxpayer dollars, currently pay all the costs of climate disasters.Fossil fuel consumption remains the largest contributor to climate change and fossil fuel producers pay virtually none of the costs climate disasters. Australia is the third largest exporter of fossil fuels in the world and these exporters pay little if any local tax.The Australia Institute is proposing a National Climate Disaster Levy initially set at $1 per tonne of embodied carbon on all fossil fuel exports from Australia. Such a levy would:Raise around $1.3 billion per annum to be used entirely to assist communities to respond to and recover from climate disastersCreate over 5,000 jobs in disaster response and recovery.Have no effect on energy prices in Australia as the levy is only on fossil fuel exports (which make up three quarters of fossil fuel production).According to the Australia Institute’s 2020 Climate of the Nation report, the majority of Australians (65%) support a levy on fossil fuel exports to pay for climate disasters, with only 21% opposed. These funds could then be used to address the growing cost of climate disasters, such as: assisting businesses to recover, fund more fire-fighting equipment, including more water-bombing planes, or help fund paid leave for volunteer fire-fighters. Grants could also be made to at-risk households and businesses to assist with fire prevention measures.“Last summer’s unprecedented Black Summer bushfires exposed just how unprepared all levels of government are to meet the costs of bushfire crises. Currently, the burden of natural disaster costs falls almost entirely on ordinary Australian households and businesses. Whether it’s through higher rates and taxes, property damage, higher insurance premiums, disruption to our lives or impacts on our health. This is neither fair nor equitable,” said Richie Merzian, climate & energy program director at the Australia Institute.“A National Climate Disaster Levy would help to begin shifting the economic burden of climate disasters from our at-risk regional communities to the global coal and gas companies that are creating the problem in the first place.“It is clear there is growing community concern for how we as a community pay for the costs of climate related disasters. The Australia Institute’s Climate of the Nation 2020 report found that support the introduction of a fossil fuel levy to pay for the impacts of climate change is growing, with 65% of Australians now supporting such a levy and only 21% opposed.“A modest $1 levy would at least begin to raise revenue from those profiting from climate change. Industries that face enormous costs as a result of climate change, including agriculture and tourism could then benefit from the national fund assisting with disaster recovery and building resilience. If we continue with the status quo, businesses and everyday Australians will continue to pay the high price for the impacts of climate change that are being fuelled by fossil producers.“It is a fundamental principle of economics that companies profiting from activities that cause damage to others should pay the costs of that damage.”Watch the Australia Institute’s new video calling for a Climate Disaster Levy here.The report ‘Who Pays for Climate Disasters?

Refinancing Contract Signed for WasteWater Treatment Company

first_imgAdvertisements FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail KINGSTON — The Ministry of Housing, Environment and Water and the National Commercial Bank (NCB) on August 2, signed a US$37 million contract for the refinancing of an existing loan for the Central Wastewater Treatment Company. Speaking at the ceremony, which was held at the NCB’s Trafalgar Road headquarters, Minister of Housing, Environment and Water, Hon. Dr. Horace Chang, said the  local capital injection will bring relief to the NWC,  and bring about  a “certain tidiness to current government financial arrangement, which was required as part of our economic programme.” The NWC has majority shares in the Central Wastewater Treatment Company. Dr. Chang reiterated the thrust by Government to make the NWC more efficient and enhance production, thereby making it a viable entity that will attract investment from the local and international capital markets. “The NWC is still one of our largest utility companies, serving nearly 600,000 households, having a cash flow of about $17 billion, and employing some 2,000 people, largely Jamaican professionals. We have had challenges, and we are taking steps to correct them, and make it a viable and sustainable utility, that can raise money confidently from the local capital market,” the Minister said. He noted that more than US$1 billion had been earmarked to enhance the operations of the NWC over the next 10 years, with the objective of reducing non-revenue water by some 25 per cent, and increasing access to water in rural areas to some 70 per cent. “We require this type of investment to ensure that we have a utility which we can take pride in, and provide the level of efficiency that we want for Jamaica,” the Minister said. He explained that the introduction of the K factor in 2008, which is a component of the customer’s water bill, is dedicated to the investment programme of the NWC, adding that K factor funds could exceed $40 billion over the 10-year period. The funds are overseen by the Office of Utilities Regulation (OUR).

With Screenings in Chicago, New Documentary Human Zoos Prompts Discussion, Debate

first_imgStudent questions were wide-ranging. One student wondered why Darwin is still in the textbooks considering the failures of his theory. Dr. West explained that he didn’t favor taking Darwin out of textbooks, but he did think students should learn about the scientific problems with Darwin’s theory and that textbooks shouldn’t try to rewrite history and cover up Darwin’s real views on race or Social Darwinism. Culture & Ethics The panel at the Kennedy-King screening was moderated by Professor Ted Williams, chairman of the Social Sciences Department at the college. An actor as well as a professor, Dr. Williams appears onscreen in Human Zoos as the Rev. James Gordon, one of the African-American ministers in New York City who challenged the display of African Ota Benga in a cage at the Bronx Zoo in 1906. Many of the students in the audience at Kennedy-King seemed deeply moved by the film and indicated that it presented them with information they had not known about previously.  During the panel discussion, Dr. Harrison explained recent DNA evidence showing that we are all one human race, while Dr. Davis and Dr. Wallace sparred about the role the Christian church played in the history of racism. The documentary shows how a number of Christians led opposition to both human zoos and eugenics. But Dr. Davis noted that many Christians also played a role in promoting racism. Dr. Wallace responded that Biblical teachings supplied a powerful foundation to oppose racism and Social Darwinism, citing the statement in Acts 17:26 that God “made from one man every nation of mankind.” Around 140 students and faculty attended the screening at Kennedy-King College. One of the City Colleges of Chicago, Kennedy-King is named in honor of Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. In addition to Dr. West, the post-screening discussion at Kennedy-King featured African American Studies professor Dr. Daniel Davis and Sociology/Anthropology professor Dr. Bonnie Harrison. It also included Dr. Eric Wallace from the Freedom’s Journal Institute (Wallace participated in the post-screening discussions at Wheaton College and Olivet Nazarene University as well).  If you have a group that would like permission to show the film, please contact Daniel Reeves at Discovery Institute.
