Couple says Walmart can’t send email to confirm second vaccine appointment

by admin
first_imgRELATEDTOPICS Advertisement FORT MYERS, Fla. – People are still struggling to get their second dose appointments at Walmart. And even when they do, now they’re having trouble confirming their spots in line. A Punta Gorda couple got their first doses all the way in Lake City earlier this month. They reached out to NBC2 after calling to confirm their second dose appointments and then finding out they wouldn’t get an email confirmation. The couple said a Walmart employee told them they have no software or system to send online confirmations.“What we were told by that person in the pharmacy was that they didn’t have any tools, they didn’t have any mechanism to do that,” William Hogue said. “But they were writing our name down on a tablet.” Lee County COVID-19 vaccine site moving to North Fort Myers this month June 13, 2021 Mobile pediatric vaccination clinic happening in Cape Coral Friday June 11, 2021 Polk County deputies search for man who beat Walmart employee June 16, 2021 Mobile pediatric clinic provides COVID vaccines for children 12+ June 15, 2021center_img AdvertisementRecommended ArticlesBrie Larson Reportedly Replacing Robert Downey Jr. As The Face Of The MCURead more81 commentsGal Gadot Reportedly Being Recast As Wonder Woman For The FlashRead more29 comments AdvertisementWalmart officials have previously said that employees would schedule people for their second dose on site and patients would get a digital reminder. “Just makes us a little bit nervous because that’s a long drive,” Hogue said. “And we’d hate to get up there and have the tablet be misplaced and not be able to get our second shot.”We reached out to Walmart to find out what they’re doing to confirm these appointments.

UK regulators review competition in wholesale markets

by admin
first_img British regulators have launched a sweeping review of the state of competition in wholesale financial markets that will look at everything from market structure to investment banking and asset management, in a bid to find areas where there may not be adequate competition. The UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) Wednesday announced a review of competition in the wholesale sector that will be looking to identify areas where competition may be weak or not be working properly. It says that the review is an exploratory exercise that aims to ferret out areas for further in-depth study.

It suggests that this could include market structure issues such as co-location, which may give high-speed traders an advantage; the production and dissemination of market data; arrangements between trading venues and clearing houses in both over-the-counter (OTC) and exchange-traded markets; and, the packaging of trading and clearing services by dealers. In terms of investment banking, it intends to examine cross-selling, the cost of equity and debt underwriting, and best execution. In asset management, it will look at the incentives asset managers have to pay fair prices for certain services such as dealing commissions, governance services, and others. “It is vital that wholesale financial markets are efficient, fair and competitive. We are publishing this call for inputs today to seek views and evidence from stakeholders on areas where they think competition may not be working effectively,” said Christopher Woolard, director of policy, risk and research at the FCA. “Effective competition within the wholesale sector can lead to an increase in institutional efficiency, lower prices, greater innovation and can improve the quality and range of financial services provided. Improvements in competition should contribute to the sustainable development of the financial system, and have positive knock-on effects for retail consumers and real economy businesses,” he added. The review will not focus on trading practices, as this is already being examined in a joint review between the FCA, the Bank of England, and the UK Treasury, which was announced last month. Feedback on the wholesale markets review is sought by October 9. James Langton FCA proposals aim to improve competition in the investment platform marketlast_img

High Food Standards Emphasised

Sharon Ffolkes-Abrahams, has underscored the need for local food processors to maintain high standards in their operations, in order to ensure consumer safety, and enhance Jamaica's competitive edge in the global marketplace. "The maintenance of high standards, with respect to (the) quality (of food) and consumer safety and protection, is not confined to our quest for markets and the satisfaction of the needs of foreign consumers. Maintenance of standards is just as important for our domestic consumers; and what is true for our exports must be of equal importance to the Jamaican consumer," the Minister emphasized while addressing the opening ceremony for the 26th Session of the Codex Committee on Processed Fruits and Vegetables, at the Hilton Rose Hall Hotel in Montego Bay, on Monday (Oct. 15). Mrs. Ffolkes-Abrahams pointed to recognition of the common marketplace which currently obtains consequent on globalization, and in which "we must all compete and adhere to international best practices". "Our major trading partners have set the benchmarks, and if we fail to put our house in order, windows of opportunity will be closed to us. This was forcibly emphasized last year with the introduction of the United States' Food and Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). This has shifted the focus from responding to food contamination to measures to prevent and protect the integrity of food imports," the Minister stated. Codex standards are recognized by the World Trade Organization (WTO) as the international reference point for food related matters. Under the WTO Sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) and the Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Agreements, it is stipulated that sanitary and phytosanitary measures, as well as technical regulations must be based on international standards. These agreements also actively encourage member countries to fully participate in the work of organizations responsible for the development of international standards. Mrs. Ffolkes-Abrahams said both the FSMA and the Codex Committee meeting can yield positive results for the island's exports. This, as conformity to the stipulations will result in better quality exports and provide additional opportunity for the penetration of non-traditional US markets.     "It is within that context that Jamaica's hosting of the 26th Codex Committee on Processed Fruits and Vegetables is, for Jamaica and the region, a significant event. It will provide us with firsthand experience in coordinating a meeting of this nature and magnitude. It provides an opportunity for Jamaicans, including local and regional manufacturers, to participate in the development of standards for value-added agricultural products; ultimately the outcomes will redound to the enhancement of international trade," she contended. The five-day conference, being co-hosted with the United States, is being attended by delegates from 35 countries who are meeting to deliberate on and adopt positions on food safety related issues. The Codex Alimentarius Commission was created in 1963 by the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO) to develop food standards to protect consumers' health, and ensure fair trade in the food trade.last_img

The primary focus of BFH is to provide rapid re-housing and case management services to families in the child welfare system.Since its implementation in January 2018, DCFS and the Los Angeles County Development Authority (LACDA), in collaboration with housing partners, have successfully served over 300 families and 400 children under the BFH Program. Through this additional funding, the DCFS and the LACDA will be able to assist another 300 homeless families.“Children thrive in safe and stable homes. This investment from the State, and partnership with LACDA, will strengthen the Department’s goal of reunification by providing supportive services to the many families of Los Angeles County,” stated Bobby D. Cagle, Director of DCFS.In spite of the challenges to locate affordable housing for these high-barrier families in Los Angeles County, the continued success of the program reflects the strong partnership and shared mission to reunify families and end homelessness in the community.“Throughout the years, the LACDA has partnered with DCFS to administer programs to reduce homelessness,” said Emilio Salas, LACDA Acting Executive Director. “This additional funding from the State of California will continue our efforts to help families in the child welfare system stabilize their lives.”Submitted by Elisa Vásquez, LACDA Public Information OfficerTags :BFHchildrenDCFShomehomelessnessState Fundingshare on Facebookshare on Twitteradd a commentAssemblymember Bloom Urges MLB to Hold the Houston Astros Accountable for their ActionsKnow Before You GoYou Might Also LikeFeaturedNewsBobadilla rejects Santa Monica City Manager positionMatthew Hall7 hours agoBriefsLos Angeles Sheriff’s deputy accused of destroying evidence of 2019 assaultAssociated Press10 hours agoBriefsCalifornia State Treasurer Fiona Ma to Speak at Online Santa Monica College Commencement Ceremony June 25Guest Author10 hours agoNewsCouncil picks new City ManagerBrennon Dixson17 hours agoFeaturedNewsProtesting parents and Snapchat remain in disagreement over child protection policiesClara Harter17 hours agoFeaturedNewsDowntown grocery to become mixed use developmenteditor17 hours agolast_img

Notre Dame students and faculty reflect on the life and death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg

by admin
first_imgCourtesy of Riya Shah. Notre Dame College Democrats and others gather to recognize Ginsburg’s death in a vigil at the grotto Sunday night.“The loss of Ruth Bader Ginsburg hit our country hard during a time of greater political and public health crisis, not only in the U.S., but around the world,” Botting said. “She had rightfully become a legal icon of a triad of egalitarian feminist values at the foundation of modern representative democracy: equality before the law; the right to non-discrimination on the basis of sex, gender or other social status; and equality of opportunity.”First year Anjali Pellegrin said she was saddened by Ginsburg’s death, and discussed her admiration for the late justice. “RBG’s death made a lot of my greatest fears a reality; for me the Supreme Court is the greatest protector of the people and the minorities, and it’s so hard to see such a strong force for good go,” Pellegrin said. “As a woman, she was my idol and as an activist she was my hope. She will rest in power” Sophomore Isabella Garcia of Notre Dame College Democrats spoke to her regard for Ginsburg, and said she was upset by the politicization surrounding her death. “It was really monumental, but I think that, especially in this time, it really stings and reminds me that the election is so important,” Garcia said. “We’re in the 40-day stretch now. I’m thinking about the fact the Trump administration is going to try to nominate and push someone through.”On Sunday evening, Notre Dame College Democrats held an unofficial vigil to remember Ginsburg’s life and recognize what she contributed to the advancement of historically marginalized groups’ rights.When asked how students can work to honor Ginsburg’s memory, Garcia talked about the vigil and said specific practices are important in honoring her. “I think, especially on a Catholic campus, it’s important to recognize the fact that Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a Jewish woman, and so recognizing the traditional learning practices for that faith tradition has been an awesome thing to learn during this time,” Garcia said. When reflecting on how to honor Ginsburg’s memory, Botting said it’s best to remember the education that brought her to the Supreme Court.“We must ensure that future generations of citizens read and learn about the egalitarian and liberal ideas that are the basis for our most cherished democratic rights and freedoms,” Botting said.Tags: egalitarian feminism, feminist, Notorious RBG, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Supreme Court, The Great Dissenter, vigil Last week, associate justice of the Supreme Court Ruth Bader Ginsburg died due to complications from metastatic pancreatic cancer. Justice Ginsburg, also referred to as “the Notorious RBG” and the court’s “Great Dissenter,” led with strength in the face of adversity. She spent much of her early career fighting gender discrimination, before being appointed to the Supreme Court by President Bill Clinton in 1993. She leaves behind a life-long legacy as a trailblazer for promoting and protecting women’s rights and furthering gender equality.University President Fr. John Jenkins released a statement Friday evening addressing Ginsburg’s death, and recalled her visit to campus in 2016. “I recall fondly her standing-room-only appearance in the Joyce Center in 2016,” Jenkins said in the statement.Political science professor Christina Wolbrecht spoke to the importance of Ginsburg’s work and its influence on the lives of current and future generations of women.“Few people in history did more to advance the equality of women than Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and all long before she sat on the Supreme Court. The series of cases she argued in the 1970s transformed and ensured the constitutional basis for sex equality,” Wolbrecht said. “There is no woman in this country whose life was not materially improved by Ginsburg’s work.”Professor Eileen Hunt Botting, a political theorist whose scholarly interests cover modern political thought, feminism, family, ethics of technology and literature, also spoke of Ginsburg’s passing.last_img
