Oilpatch CEO says Trudeau needs to give real pipeline support not just

first_imgBut Broen says Trudeau should sit down with officials from Kinder Morgan Canada, the company building the much-delayed Trans Mountain project, to find out what obstacles it is facing and then take action to remove those barriers.In a speech to investors at his company’s annual general meeting in Calgary, Broen said the government shouldn’t have launched a revamp of the National Energy Board, adding he doesn’t understand what was wrong with the regulator as it was.He says he disagrees with the prime minister that Alberta’s adoption of a carbon tax last year makes it easier to push through pipeline construction, pointing out no new pipeline capacity has resulted as yet.“I would tell him (Trudeau) he has to show leadership on the pipeline file. And it’s not just words,” said Broen. “He needs to back up Kinder Morgan, the pipeline he’s approved, and he needs to see it through to construction and make sure we can put shovels in the ground and get it built for the benefit of all Canadians.” CALGARY, A.B. — An oil company CEO is harshly criticizing Justin Trudeau as the prime minister tours the oilsands region of northeastern Alberta today.Athabasca Oil CEO Rob Broen says if he met Trudeau, he would tell him the industry needs real leadership on oil export pipelines, “not just words.”Trudeau has been telling audiences in B.C. and Alberta that he supports both the environment and pipeline projects like the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion from Edmonton to the Vancouver area.last_img read more

El Khalfi Geneva Western Sahara Roundtable Marked Significant Changes

Rabat –Morocco’s government spokesperson Mustapha El Khalfi spoke about Geneva’s Western Sahara roundtable, which convened the four parties to the conflict on December 6-7.On Thursday after the weekly cabinet meeting, El Khalfi said in a press conference that the roundtable on the Western Sahara conflict marked “significant changes” as it brought together the four stakeholders.He reiterated Morocco’s long-held and “unwavering” position that Algeria is a “leading player” in the Western Sahara conflict, a position that King Mohammed VI reaffirmed in his message to the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres last March. El Khalfi went on to say that through this participation, Morocco showed its commitment to aiding the efforts of the Secretary General’s personal Envoy Horst Kohler in finding a mutually acceptable political solution to the conflict.The Moroccan official pointed out that Morocco has long proposed the idea of finding a realistic solution through its autonomy plan.read Also: Ambassador to Morocco: Russia Remains Friendly with Parties to Western SaharaHe added that the Maghreb region must be a player in the peace, stability, and development of the five countries, and that the aim “is not only to find a solution to the regional conflict but also to lay the foundations for effective regional integration.”“It is impossible to determine the future of the Sahara without the involvement of its inhabitants,” he said.El Khalfi said that UN Security Council Resolution 2440 adopted on October 31, brushed aside the Polisario’s claims that the area east of Morocco’s defense wall belongs to its “liberated territories.”Recalling the resolutions of the Security Council, El Khalfi said that the UN has been clear as it urged Polisario to refrain from transferring some of its “administrative facilities,” to the buffer zone and east Morocco’s defense wall.He also reiterated that the Western Sahara conflict should only be solved within the auspices of the United Nations. read more

Lebanon UNbacked court receives first indictment in Hariri assassination

17 January 2011The United Nations-backed tribunal set up to try suspects in the 2005 murders of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri and 22 others received its first indictment today, but its contents remain confidential at this stage. The Prosecutor of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL), Daniel Bellemare, submitted the indictment and supporting materials to Pre-Trial Judge Daniel Fransen, who will now review them, court Registrar Herman von Hebel said in a statement in Leidschendam, Netherlands, where the tribunal sits.The situation in Lebanon has been marked by rising tensions in recent months and last Wednesday, the government of national unity collapsed when 11 cabinet ministers from Hizbollah and allied groups resigned after months of negotiations brokered by Saudi Arabia and Syria failed to produce a compromise over the Tribunal.In a statement from his spokesman today, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon reiterated his support for the court, an independent body set up following a probe by the International Independent Investigation Commission after an earlier UN mission found that Lebanon’s own inquiry into the massive car bombing that killed Mr. Hariri and the others was seriously flawed, and that Syria was primarily responsible for the political tensions that preceded the attack.“The independent judicial process should not be linked with any political debate,” the statement said, stressing that the STL indictment “is in pursuit of its mandate to end impunity for the terrible crimes” that killed Mr. Hariri and 22 others, as well as for related attacks. It underscored that the Tribunal is an independent court of law established at the request of the Government of Lebanon, with a clear mandate from the UN Security Council.“The Secretary-General reiterates his call on all parties to refrain from any interference or influence in its work, but to allow it to proceed in accordance with the highest legal principles and standards applied by all United Nations-assisted international tribunals,” the statement said.Last week Mr. Ban met with Mr. Hariri’s son, Prime Minister Saad Hariri, in New York to highlight his support for the Tribunal, stressing its independence and voicing the hope that its work would help end impunity in the country. read more

Toyota investing 100 million in Ontario plant will hire 400 workers

But Toyota and Honda have expanded their operations in Ontario, Canada’s manufacturing heartland.Toyota has faced production problems due to last year’s earthquake and tsunami in Japan and massive flooding in Thailand that cut parts supplies and slowed down their global output, even in Canada. But sales have begun to spring back recently, with Toyota Canada reporting it sold 16,957 vehicles in June, 70.1 per cent more than last June.Federal Industry Minister Christian Paradis said the government is “pleased to see Toyota expanding production at its Cambridge facility.”“Canada is a great place to build vehicles, and we will continue to encourage investment by providing tax relief, eliminating tariffs on machinery and equipment, and creating an environment that promotes innovation, research and development.”Ontario’s Minister of Economic Development and Innovation, Brad Duguid, said the announcement “strengthens Ontario’s position as North America’s leading jurisdiction for automotive assembly.”Toyota began its Canadian operations in 1986 in Cambridge.The Cambridge and Woodstock investments will bring its Canadian workforce to some 7,300 at two plants in Cambridge and one in Woodstock, where the Toyota Corolla, Toyota Matrix, Toyota RAV4, and the Lexus RX 350 vehicles are manufactured. read more

Trouble for Shrenu Parikhs Sarvagun Sampanna makers receive threat calls from influential

first_imgShrenu Parikh as JahnaviPR HandoutRecently Star Plus unveiled the promo of their upcoming show titled Ek Bhram- Sarvagun Sampanna starring Shrenu Parikh as Jahnavi, in a completely unique concept of an antagonist Bahu as opposed to the conventional docile daughter-in-law.The show, however, is inspired by a real story of a high profile influential family, which the makers are extremely confidential about.The creators have been strictly instructed to keep the details of the family under wraps, as the reputed family fears exposing the controversial story.The makers along with the entire cast and crew have been bound by an NDA which restricts them from divulging any details on the real inspiration.A source reveals, “Ever since the promo released , the makers have received threat calls from various influential families interrogating if it is based on their lives. Though it is based on one powerful Indian family, the producers are currently unwilling to disclose details to viewers. They have signed a NDA with the cast and crew, who have been told to remain tight-lipped about the offering.”Apparently the promos of the show Ek Bhram- Sarvagun Sampanna have left the most elite families startledEver since the news came out that the show is based on a real family, which has a very high social status in India, the makers have been bombarded with queries on the family. In fact, a lot of people have called the makers enquiring if the show traces their story.While the show puts forth a very unique narrative of an wicked daughter-in-law, who surpasses levels of scrutiny to torture her family members, the makers did not anticipate that the story bears resemblance to so many influential families.Recently, the makers launched multiple promos of the show introducing the lead protagonist, Janhvi Mittal played by Shrenu Parikh. The actress has been going through a grueling preparation mentally as well as emotionally, to portray the villainous character.last_img read more

Family of whistleblowing Myanmar cop evicted after testimony

first_imgProsecution witness police captain Moe Yan Naing walks outside the court room during a hearing of detained Reuters journalists Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo in Yangon, Myanmar 20 April, 2018. Photo: ReutersThe family of a Myanmar policeman who told a court how police planted secret documents on Reuters reporters to “entrap” them was evicted from police housing in the capital Naypyitaw on Saturday, less than 24 hours after his testimony, family members said.The family has temporarily taken shelter in an apartment belonging to the policeman’s brother, the brother said.In widely-covered testimony on Friday, Police Captain Moe Yan Naing gave the details of the hours leading up to the 12 Dec arrest of Reuters reporters Wa Lone, 32, and Kyaw Soe Oo, 28, and said the police had arranged a “set up”.A district court in Yangon has been holding hearings since January to decide whether the two should be charged under the colonial-era Official Secrets Act, which carries a maximum penalty of 14 years in prison.At the time of their arrest, the reporters had been working on a Reuters investigation into the killing of 10 Rohingya Muslim men and boys in a village in western Myanmar’s Rakhine state. The killings happened during an army crackdown that United Nations agencies say has sent nearly 700,000 Rohingya fleeing to Bangladesh.”I got a phone call at 7am A police second lieutenant who I’m familiar with said, ‘sister you need to move out from the quarters,'” Moe Yan Naing’s unemployed wife Tu Tu, 42, told local media group the Irrawaddy.”He said ‘you need to move out immediately.’ I said ‘is that so?’ and I become speechless. I didn’t know what to say,” she said in a video clip carried on the Irrawaddy’s Facebook page.”We are staff family. We don’t have a house yet. Where am I supposed to move with all these items?”.Moe Yan Naing had told the court he had been under arrest since the night of Dec. 12, accused of violating the Police Disciplinary Act.Tu Tu said in the video clip she had not had any contact with her husband since he was arrested and appealed to Myanmar President Win Myint for help.Reuters was unable to reach Tu Tu for comment.BOXES, BUNDLES, BAGSTu Tu posted photographs on Facebook showing bundles, boxes, bags and a mattress stacked up in front of a building.Other pictures showed men removing chairs and beds from her flat and loading them onto a truck. One of the posts was shared more than 16,000 times and gathered a similar number of reactions.Moe Yan Naing’s brother Ye Wint Naing confirmed the authenticity of Tu Tu’s Facebook posts in a phone interview with Reuters.Police spokesman Myo Thu Soe did not respond to several Reuters attempts to reach him for comment on Saturday. He told Reuters on Friday about Moe Yan Naing’s court testimony that it “cannot be assumed as true – we still need to listen to the remaining witnesses so the situation will become clearer”.Myanmar government spokesman Zaw Htay also could not be reached for comment on Saturday and did not respond to a text message seeking comment.Tin Myint, the permanent secretary of the home affairs ministry which oversees the police, could not be reached for comment, and neither could his two deputies.”They are at my home in Naypyitaw now,” Ye Wint Naing, the brother of Moe Yan Naing, said of the policeman’s family.He said the couple has two daughters and one son. “I am still helping move her items now,” he said.Moe Yan Naing told the court on Friday his family lived in housing for police families in Naypyitaw.Protection Committee for Myanmar Journalists, a Myanmar free speech group, issued an appeal to gather funds for Moe Yan Naing’s family and gathered about 1.5 million Myanmar kyat ($1,127), while Naypyitaw-based journalists gathered another 900,000 kyat – altogether about $1,800 – journalists involved told Reuters.The journalists said the family has rejected the funds because it wanted to “protect the dignity” of Moe Yan Naing and not accept charity.Thar Lon Zaung Htet from PCMJ told Reuters the committee has now stopped gathering money and will try to meet the family to hand over the funds.last_img read more

To learn more, she viewed previously recorded footage of the squid in action then sailed onboard one of Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute’s submersibles, where a mechanical arm normally used for grabbing things for research was used to prod some of the squid that were found. Initially, the team came up empty, likely because of the slippery character of the metal hand. Next, they affixed a bottle brush to the arm and this time after poking some of the squid, causing them to attack, the team witnessed and filmed them detaching arm parts. Play Octopoteuthis deletron autotomizes 2 arms onto a bottle-brush that is attached to an arm of the remotely operated vehicle (ROV) ‘Ventana’ on October 22, 2008, at 830 m depth. The 2 arms remain attached to the bottle-brush, and then 1 arm detaches and thrashes for 10 s before ceasing movement. The terminal photophore of the thrashing arm is white, therefore it is presumably bioluminescent. Video: MEPS 458:133-140 (2012). doi:10.3354/meps09714 Bush also brought some specimens into the lab and found that when provoked, seven out of eleven of them broke off arm parts. She also noted that not only were the squid able to let go of arm parts, similar to the way lizards let go of tail parts, but that they did so at the point on their arm that was closest to the object being attacked, thus minimizing tissue loss.This new finding adds another intriguing feature to the squid, in addition to its ability to squirt ink to create a black cloud allowing it to escape, it also has light emitting organs on the tips of each arm. The lights are thought to distract enemies or prey while the squid either escapes or attacks. The squid are able to regenerate lost arm parts, but Bush notes that it takes awhile, thus it makes sense that they would only break off as much as is needed. She also notes that the arm parts can only be broken off under tension, either by grabbing and holding on to something, or by something grabbing it by one or more of its arms.

I documented numerous individuals with shortened, blunt-ended arms and regenerating arm-tips, which may be indicative of arm autotomy, i.e. the jettisoning of a body part as a defense. To test the hypothesis that O. deletron is capable of arm autotomy, laboratory investigations and an in situ experiment using ROVs attempted to induce autotomy. I looked for autotomy fracture planes in histologically sectioned arms. O. deletron is capable of arm autotomy, but it requires traction to occur. O. deletron has numerous places where an arm can sever; arm breakage always occurred immediately proximal to the point of interaction, minimizing tissue loss, and demonstrating ‘economy of autotomy’. Despite the fact that this species can autotomize an arm anywhere along its length, only a few well-defined fracture planes were found in our histological sections, indicating that autotomy probably occurs via loss of tensile strength during a defensive interaction. In O. deletron, an autotomized arm usually thrashes and the terminal arm photophore bioluminesces—whether a steady glow, flashing on and off, or both—which could be an important part of predator distraction associated with autotomy in dark, mesopelagic waters. O. deletron is the first squid reported to autotomize its arms, the only cephalopod known to be capable of economy of autotomy, and is one of very few species known to use attack autotomy, whereby a predator is grasped by a body part that is subsequently autotomized.Press release Citation: Study shows one kind of squid can jettison parts of its arm (w/ Video) (2012, August 2) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-08-kind-squid-jettison-arm-video.html (Phys.org) — Aquatic researcher Stephanie Bush has found that one species of squid, Octopoteuthis deletron, is able to jettison part of its arm when either attacking or being attacked. Known as arm autotomy, O. deletron is the only known species of squid able to do so. And as Bush notes in her paper published as part of the Marine Ecology Progress Series, the squid are able to release part of their arm at the point of stress, rather than as octopi do, by releasing their whole leg.

Researchers document new species of carnivorous sponge w Video

Researchers document new species of carnivorous sponge w Video

first_img Scientists have known for almost twenty years that some species of sponge are carnivorous; instead of absorbing organic material in ocean water like other sponges, they actually catch their prey and then use chemicals to break them down. It wasn’t known if Chondrocladia lyra, discovered by geologists exploring deep water off the coast of California, was a meat eater or not, due to the depths at which it lives – almost two miles down. In this new research, the harp sponge, as it’s been nicknamed due to its physical similarity to the musical instrument, has been found to be not only carnivorous but able to mate via sperm package delivery. Citation: Researchers document new species of carnivorous sponge (w/ Video) (2012, November 12) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-11-document-species-carnivorous-sponge-video.html Sea sponges busted by researchers © 2012 Phys.org The researchers studied the sponge using deep sea vehicles and in so doing found that they look like multi-vaned harps, each with balls on the top ends of its “strings.” The strings have Velcro-like hooks for catching invertebrate prey. Captured prey is channeled to an enclosure where it is covered in chemicals that break it down for absorption. But the balls also serve another purpose; each contains packets of spermatophores that are released into the surrounding water where they are carried to other sponges by currents. Other sponges are fertilized when they capture them.The researchers also found that the harp sponge are anchored to the sea floor by what are known as rhizoids, which resemble a root system and that the number of vanes individual specimens can have, vary from sponge to sponge, ranging from 1 to 6. They noted too that once a sponge is fertilized, eggs that sit at the midpoint of the strings between the base and balls swell up as new sponges develop.The researchers theorize that the harp sponge developed its elaborate structure as a means of maximizing surface area to allow for catching the most possible prey. Journal information: Invertebrate Biology Credit: MBARI More information: Lee, W. L., Reiswig, H. M., Austin, W. C. and Lundsten, L. (2012), An extraordinary new carnivorous sponge, Chondrocladia lyra, in the new subgenus Symmetrocladia (Demospongiae, Cladorhizidae), from off of northern California, USA. Invertebrate Biology. doi: 10.1111/ivb.12001AbstractChondrocladia (Symmetrocladia) lyra subgen. nov., sp. nov., is described from northeast Pacific sites at Escanaba Ridge and Monterey Canyon at depths of 3316–3399 m. Two retrieved specimens are described in detail, while variations are described in ten photographed or videotaped specimens. The basic structure, termed a vane, is harp- or lyre-shaped. From 1 to 6 vanes extend by radial growth from the organism’s center. The orientation among the vanes is approximately equiangular, such that together they display pentaradiate, tetraradiate, triradiate, or biradiate symmetries. Each vane is formed by a horizontal stolon supporting a series of upright, equidistantly spaced branches each of which terminates at its apex in a swollen ball in all observed specimens except the paratype. Swellings occur midway along the branches in the holotype, but not in the paratype. A linear row of filaments project from the sides, front, and back of each branch, and also from the tops of each stolon. The terminal balls are the sites of spermatophore production and release; mid-branch swellings are sites of oocyte maturation. The two megasclere spicule types have specific distributions; styles support rhizoids, stolons, and branches, while subtylostyles support filaments and terminal balls. Anchorate isochelae cover all surfaces. Enclosed crustacean prey on branches and stolons provide direct evidence of carnivory. The structure of the vanes maximizes surface area for passive suspension feeding. Increased surface area could also maximize spermatophore capture, with the sigmas projecting from the spermatophore surface being caught by projecting isochelae on filaments. Swellings on filaments are snared spermatophores, firmly fused to recipient tissues and undergoing destruction. Spermatophores on filaments are present in branch swellings containing early and mature oocytes. Oogenesis and maturation occur only in proximity to branch swellings, suggesting that development is induced by spermatophore reception. Symmetrical development of uniserial branched stolons (the vanes) characterized members of the new subgenus Symmetrocladia. This document is subject to copyright.

Syrian troops attack town recently captured by militants

first_img Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement State TV said two reporters embedded with Syrian troops in the area were lightly wounded while covering the fight. It identified them as Jaafar Younnes and Abdou Zamam, who both work for state-run TV stations.Sunday’s fighting was concentrated near the national hospital compound south of the town, where scores of Syrian troops have been besieged by militants for more than two weeks.The expected offensive on Jisr al-Shughour comes after a string of defeats by government forces in northwestern Idlib province.

Women Influencing the Mortgage Industry

Women Influencing the Mortgage Industry

first_img September 18, 2017 584 Views Lending Women in Housing 2017-09-18 Whitney Blessington Making homebuyers’ dreams a reality is the goal of every great lender, and in the past few years, how that goal is achieved has changed—influenced by laws, technology and an emerging homebuyer demographic. This is where many articles go down the path of discussing “millennials”, but in the spirit of this month’s issue, we’re here to highlight another trend: female homebuyers. According to the 2017 National Association of Realtors Home Buyer and Seller Generational Trends report, single women are buying more houses than single men today. While the majority of total homebuyers are married couples (66 percent), 17 percent were single females (compared to single men, who comprise seven percent of the total).So, why are more females buying homes? There’s much speculation and no clear answer (although, we have some ideas). What does it mean for lenders? It’s an exciting and positive change that every lender should pay attention to; it will help them adjust their strategies to fit the shift in buyers, and continue making homeownership a reality for every borrower.Empowerment and Departure from Tradition Women today are more empowered than ever before and have a more inherent self-sufficient mindset compared to previous generations. It exceeds well beyond the mortgage industry; there are more female entrepreneurs, professors and working professionals in the workforce and for the first time ever, a female was a primary candidate for the presidency of the United States. And while there’s still much work to be done before we reach true equality, we can’t ignore the progress we’ve made so far. In addition, tradition dictated that marriage preceded a home purchase, but today, there’s a change in that thought process. Analysis of data from the National Survey of Family Growth showed that of women born in the 40s, 25 percent were unmarried by the time they reached the age of 23. Conversely, the share of unmarried 23-year olds born in the 90s is 81 percent. Under this empowerment and departure from tradition lies a fundamental characteristic of women: the desire for stability and security and the tendency to be the familial caretaker. A home defines those characteristics.As lenders, appealing to homebuyers with a variety of characteristics requires an array of targeted approaches. This isn’t anything new; borrower segmentation has been around and used for a long time and successful lenders know to be responsibly mindful of current borrower dynamics because each one brings a unique mindset to home buying that must be understood and respected. Overall, homebuyers want to understand the process and have the best education available to help create a trusted and enjoyable experience. The difference today is the diversity of the segments. A larger share of female homebuyers means making changes in two key areas:Appealing to the Female Homebuyer  Lenders must take into consideration how males and females approach a home purchase. Male borrowers have a tendency to prioritize the interest rate – they’re likely to be more analytical and process-driven. Female borrowers on the other hand will relate more to the aesthetics and emotional components of the purchase (security, stability and trust). That isn’t to say that the budget is less important for the female homebuyer, but the conversation and communication leading up to the final decision is going to be different. Each requires a unique approach from a marketing perspective. For example, women tend to trust each other more than traditional advertising and tend to use social media more often than males, specifically Facebook and Instagram. They’re also more likely to follow brands. As a marketing team, this is important to keep in mind. When it comes to the home search, females tend to find the house they like and then look into the budgetary requirements (whereas males prioritize the loan and then the home search). We looked at our own sample of data, and it showed that of total applications, a larger share of men (24.5 percent) get pre-approved before completing the mortgage application compared to females (15.6 percent).What it really all comes down to is communication and making sure that the borrower is comfortable with the process. If you’re not as intimidated, then you’re more likely to get further along in the process. That is the most important thing in our business and more diversity enables lenders to connect with borrowers in a more natural and easy way. Obviously, this is good for business, but as a whole, it makes the industry more approachable. Consider a business operating in a predominately Spanish-speaking area. Having employees who can communicate has a tremendously positive impact.Diversifying Your WorkforceIn 2001, Ford Motor Marketing reported that women influenced 80 percent of all car purchases and at that time, CNW Research (an automotive marketing research firm) found that “half of new car purchases are made by women, and 53 percent of used car sales can be attributed to women.” The growing female influence changed the automotive industry—in response to the increasing share of female car buyers, repair shots and dealerships began hiring more female technicians and service managers. Not because there was a demand to be treated differently, but because there was a need to adjust to the behavior styles of female customers, to make them feel comfortable when interacting with the sales representatives and mechanics. There was noticeable change in the operations of automotive retailers, with a greater emphasis on cleanliness and appearance, which lead to a better experience for the emerging customer segment. We’ve already established that more single women are buying homes and research from the Harvard Business Review shows that women make the decision in the purchases of 91 percent of homes. It only makes more sense to have mortgage professionals who can connect and relate with female homebuyers and that’s naturally going to be a female loan officer; someone who can simply communicate and share experiences with them and provide insights in a more relatable manner.Regardless, any lender should seek mortgage professionals with exemplary character, who are caring and competent and who are driven to achieve goals in their everyday approach. It’s also important to strike a balance of the strengths of everyone, whether male or female. Each person has their own unique dynamic and it’s important to consider those dynamics when professionals approach their duties in the mortgage industry.What this Means for the IndustryWe are excited to see this shift in the mortgage industry. A diverse workforce across all levels of the mortgage industry benefits us all. Each person performing to their strengths will make the entire team stronger, which strengthens the organizations from the ground up.Females bring a different skill set to the trade that is beneficial and the effect this has on borrower service is undeniable. Breaking down the barriers to entry to the industry is critical. Lenders have to help serve and treat everyone with the same excellent service no matter what and every adjustment, big or small, must be made to ensure that borrowers are provided with the best homebuying experience.

Disaster Bill Moves to Presidents Desk

Disaster Bill Moves to Presidents Desk

first_img in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Disaster Bill Moves to President’s Desk June 4, 2019 301 Views Sharecenter_img On Monday, the House of Representatives voted to pass H.R.2940, which provides $19.1 billion in recovery funds for disaster-affected areas including Puerto Rico. The House passed the bill after a 10-day recess, voting 354-58. As the Senate had already voted to pass the bill 85-8 on May 23, the bill will now move on to President Donald Trump for his sign-off.”We must work together quickly to pass a bill that addresses the surge of unaccompanied children crossing the border and provides law enforcement agencies with the funding they need,” said top Appropriations Committee Republican Kay Granger of Texas on Fox News. “The stakes are high. There are serious—life or death—repercussions if the Congress does not act.”U.S. Reps. Randy Weber and Lizzie Fletcher introduced the Bipartisan Disaster Recovery Funding Act in May with support from 13 other co-sponsors from Texas, mostly from the Houston area, as well as supporters from other communities waiting on the funding, including Louisiana, South Carolina, Florida, and Puerto Rico.The Act directs federal agencies to release the $16 billion in disaster funds Congress approved in early 2018 following Hurricane Harvey to different states and territories—including more than $4 billion to Texas—within 60 days.“After Harvey hit, I fought alongside the Texas delegation to secure additional funds for Harvey survivors,” said U.S. Rep. Mike McCaul. “Unfortunately, the agencies tasked with distributing these funds did not respond with the same urgency.”According to the Texas Tribune, Texas has already received billions of dollars for Harvey recovery, but each bucket of money is designated for a specific purpose. The $4.3 billion that Congress approved for Texas last February is part of a HUD grant program designed “to help cities, counties, and States recover from Presidentially declared disasters, especially in low-income areas.”The Five Star Conference will host its Disaster Preparedness Symposium on July 31 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Natural disasters impact investors, service providers, mortgage servicers, government agencies, legal professionals, lenders, property preservation companies, and—most importantly—homeowners. The 2019 Five Star Disaster Preparedness Symposium will include critical conversations on response, reaction and assistance, to ensure the industry is ready to lend the proper support the next time a natural disaster strikes.
