Royal Robinson picks on government over health issue claims

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppTurks And Caicos Islands, May 19th 2017 :Royal Robinson is accusing the government of downplaying of the outbreak of Scabies among Prisoners. In a release, where he describes himself as the shadow Health Minister, Robinson highlighted plans to relocate the prisoners, to the Green Door Facility, located adjacent to the Community College in Grand Turk. However, the forty men were sent with a clean bill of health back to the Dominican Republic on Tuesday via two government chartered flights. The TCI court was a part of the arrangements made to charge, reduce sentence to time serve and deport, putting on halt any relocation plans for the detention centre, at least for now.Robinson highlighted the scabies parasite as mites, not native to the TCI and a possible threat to students at the college if the relocation happened.  The TCI Government had agreed with the DR consular to have the men sent home, after it was proving too costly and troublesome to continue their detention.Meanwhile, the opposition member says government has not done much to control an apparent mosquito outbreak. In the release, the self named shadow health minister says “government failed to utilise chemicals, trucks and manpower in the fight against mosquitoes, allowing its population to expand to exponential proportions”, describing it as the “most brutal mosquito assault in the TCI in recent years”.His comments come a month after Zika Communications Strategy consultant, Salorne McDonald says there were no new cases of Zika in the TCI for 2017. Last week, government carried out a carried out its Mosquito Awareness week campaign, which involved awareness activities highlighting the ills of breeding mosquitoes.Robinson warns of the high alert for Zika which still remains in the western world. He says TCI cannot waste anymore time while “there is potential for the ill-health of the nation”, as the virus is a real threat to the Caribbean. Robinson says the time had come for no more excuses. He adds that months ago the same government was boasting of change and promising a better life, but now is “failing on basic community health issues.” #MagneticMediaNews#RoyalRobinsonPicksOnTCIGcenter_img Related Items:#magneticmedianews, #RoyalRobinsonPicksOnTCIGlast_img read more

Granger on Flap Over Esquires Cover Flap

first_imgThe February cover of Esquire, featuring—who else?—Barack Obama on its cover, caused a bit of a stir in hardlining church-state circles over a cover “window” that opens up to an ad for the Discovery Channel, as well as a mini-TOC.Editor David Granger, who’s become something of a serial envelope pusher (see: Esquire’s e-ink cover, margin novella, etc.), claims it wasn’t a gimmick cooked up by some outside the box sales executive at Hearst, but a pure editorial play.  “This was an editorial idea,” he wrote in a post on the American Society of Magazine Editors blog.  “It’s one of the several manufacturing gimmicks I presented to my publisher about a year and a half ago as things I would love to do if we could find a way to pay for them.”RELATED VIDEO: Granger’s Keynote at the 2007 FOLIO: Show Granger’s reasons for pushing the envelope this time run deeper than his well-documented restlessness with his position as editor of a print magazine.“I got sick of reading about the demise of print, which is the best, most rewarding medium ever, and I got sick of all forms of print being labeled ‘old media,’” he wrote. “Yeah, print has been around for a long time, but that’s because it works really well. Both aesthetically and as a business—which is more than one can say for most forms of ‘new media.’ So we’ve been trying to find ways to get people to reassess the print medium.”For its part, ASME said it did not violate any guidelines: “A clever and audacious use of print, yes; an attempt to disguise advertising as editorial or compromise editorial independence, no.”Read more here …last_img read more

Dr Oz The Good Life Cuts Frequency Guts Staff

first_imgHearst Magazines is pulling back on wellness title Dr. Oz The Good Life, reducing its print frequency from 10 issues per year to four and laying off several staffers, multiple sources close to the situation tell Folio:. “Dr. Oz THE GOOD LIFE has been among the top ten best-selling brands on the newsstand since it launched in 2014. We’re always looking at new business models for our products, so we’re leaning into the magazine’s strong consumer franchise and pivoting to a quarterly frequency of high-quality bookazines. Dr. Oz THE GOOD LIFE content will also run in a variety of brands across our portfolio.” In response to an inquiry, a Hearst Magazines spokesperson provided the following statement: The news comes as a bit of a surprise, given Hearst’s own recent claims that ad sales for the three-year-old magazine rose 17 percent year-over-year in 2016, coupled with a 16 percent hike to the book’s rate base — to 925,000 — to start this year. That’s up from the 450,000 rate base at which Dr. Oz The Good Life debuted in 2014.center_img The spokesperson did not confirm just how many staffers are being let go as a result of said pivot, nor whether editor-in-chief Jill Herzig or VP and publisher Kristine Welker are among them.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR If You Want Change Vote Fasulo Sullivan For Selectmen

first_imgDear Editor,The upcoming selectman’s election on Saturday April 27th may be the most critical election in the history of our town. With 3 seats on the line the outcome of this election will determine the future direction of Wilmington. The choice is simple. If you like the direction the town is heading then vote for the incumbents. That will perpetuate the status quo. If you are dissatisfied with the direction the town has taken, meaningful change must begin with a change in leadership.After considering the track records and qualifications of all of the contenders, I enthusiastically support the candidacies of Suzanne Sullivan and Rob Fasulo. While both of these people are quite different in some respects. However, their track records demonstrate courage and integrity. They are involved in local government and can be seen at the various town board meetings year round. Both Suzanne and Rob have walked-the-walk as citizen activists and fierce defenders of the wellbeing of the residents of Wilmington. These 2 candidates see the critical importance of our town needing to adopt a policy of responsible growth.Suzanne Sullivan has a wealth of experience and a record of solid leadership in the town of Wilmington. She was a member of the Wilmington Board of Selectmen and knows the workings of government inside and out. Her efforts to help the residents of Wilmington include volunteering to serve on multiple town committees, citizen neighborhood groups, charitable causes and as a youth soccer coach. Last but not least, Suzan is an environmentalist and passionate protector of Mother Nature. She put the spotlight on the Olin Chemical spill. While many in Wilmington believe that crisis is over and done, Suzanne knows the problem is worsening every day. She does her level-best to keep this catastrophe on the front-burner and on the minds of residents, elected and appointed officials.Rob Fasulo is a family man and lifelong resident of Wilmington. As such he deeply cares for his home town and its future. Like Suzanne, Rob is an environmental advocate. As a beekeeper he is well aware of the delicate balance of nature and the fragility of the environment. He is a fiscal conservative. In my opinion this is a great attribute. Rob will provide a much needed balance to the board with his conservative views. Doubtless this will provoke many spirited discussions on taxation and spending ensuring a well thought-out decision making process.In closing I respectfully ask you to consider casting your votes for Rob Fasulo and Suzanne Sullivan on Saturday April 27th.Sincerely,Gerry BrunoLike Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

James Murdoch rumoured to replace Elon Musk as Tesla chairman

first_imgMurdoch could not immediately be reached for comment. Tesla did not respond to a request for comment. Twenty-First Century Fox declined to comment.Musk is the public face of Tesla, and any chairman would have to contend with his powerful personality. Thanks to his vision and audacious showmanship, Tesla’s valuation has at times eclipsed that of traditional, established U.S. automakers with billions in revenues and the company has garnered legions of fans, despite repeated production issues.”The question when it comes to James Murdoch is, ‘Is he the guy who’ll be able to establish that level of authority with Elon Musk?'” asked Abby Adlerman, CEO of Boardspan, a corporate governance consulting company.Investor concerns that Tesla’s board was too closely tied to Musk led to the company’s addition of two independent directors, including Murdoch, in July 2017.Earlier this year, leading U.S. proxy advisers Glass Lewis & Co and Institutional Shareholder Services, and union-affiliated investment adviser CtW Investment Group, had recommended investors cast votes “against” the re-election of Murdoch as a Tesla director at the company’s annual meeting held on June 5.While CtW cited a lack of relevant experience and a “troubled history as an executive and director,” both proxy firms warned that Murdoch already served on too many boards.He stepped down from the board of Sky Plc on Tuesday following the completion of Comcast Corp’s takeover of the broadcaster.Murdoch was forced out as chairman of Sky, then BSkyB, in 2012 after being embroiled in Britain’s phone-hacking scandal. He returned to Sky’s board in 2016 after rebuilding his career at Fox.Glass Lewis research director Courteney Keatinge said on Wednesday that while Murdoch’s departure from Sky could alleviate some concerns, the Tesla chairmanship would still require a big time commitment as the company faces pressures on many fronts.”I would still have reservations about the time he would be able to allot to this,” Keatinge said.According to the FT report, external options were still being considered.Considering a broad choice of candidates was important, said Dieter Waizenegger, executive director of CtW Investment Group, because “Investors should really be wary about the board making the easy choice here” in opting for Murdoch.Murdoch is set to be succeeded by his brother Lachlan Murdoch as Twenty First Century Fox chief executive officer, after the media group completes the sale of bulk of its assets to Walt Disney.’STABILITY AT THE TOP’Tesla faces a crucial moment as it struggles to produce its Model 3 sedan in large volume and deliver it quickly to customers amid an ongoing cash crunch that has concerned some analysts. Musk has vowed that the loss-making company will be profitable and cash flow-positive in its third and fourth quarters.Concerns about Musk due to production delays and manufacturing challenges have been exacerbated by a series of damaging actions, including Musk insulting analysts on a conference call, calling a British cave rescuer a pedophile, and joking on April Fool’s Day that Tesla was going bankrupt.Shares are down 20 percent since the beginning of the year.”Elon Musk is building a great company but has been erratic to say the least when it comes to thinking about his investors,” said Chaim Siegel, an analyst at Elazar Advisors. “The company needs some added stability at the top to win back investor confidence.”Under terms of the SEC settlement, Musk is not permitted to be re-elected to the chairman’s post for three years. Tesla is also required to appoint two new independent directors to its board.With U.S. stock markets broadly lower, Tesla shares closed down 2.3 percent at $256.88. SpaceX CEO Elon Musk speaks at the International Astronautical Congress on September 29, 2017 in Adelaide, AustraliaGetty imagesOutgoing Twenty-First Century Fox Inc Chief Executive James Murdoch is the lead candidate to replace Elon Musk as Tesla Inc chairman, the Financial Times reported on Wednesday, but Musk in a tweeted reply to the newspaper said, “This is incorrect.”Tesla has until Nov. 13 to appoint an independent chairman of the board, part of settlements reached last month between Tesla, Musk and U.S. regulators in the wake of Musk tweeting in August that he had secured funding to take the electric car maker private.The SEC settlement capped months of debate and some investor calls for stronger oversight of Musk, whose recent erratic public behaviour raised concerns about his ability to steer the money-losing company through a rocky phase of growth.The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, which said Musk’s tweeted statements about going private were fraudulent, allowed the billionaire to retain his role as CEO while requiring he give up his chairmanship.Musk had said he was considering taking Tesla private at a price of $420 a share, a number that is slang for marijuana. He tweeted the three-word denial of the Financial Times story, on Wednesday at 4:20 pm PT (2320 GMT), about six hours after the newspaper’s post.In a vote of confidence for Musk, shareholder T. Rowe Price Group Inc said in a regulatory filing on Wednesday that it had raised its stake by nearly half to 10.2 percent at the end of September from just under 7 percent in June.The Financial Times cited two people briefed on discussions saying Murdoch was the lead candidate for the job.Murdoch, already an independent director of Tesla, has signalled he wants the job, the report said.The son of Fox mogul Rupert Murdoch, he joined Tesla’s board last year after years of work with media companies. He has no experience in manufacturing and has never led a company that makes cars or electric vehicles.last_img read more

REUTERS/Benoit Tessier – RC1299EF4EF0Former President Barack Obama is calling President Donald Trump’s decision to pull out of the Iran deal a “serious mistake” that will erode America’s global credibility.Obama’s administration brokered the deal. He says Tuesday that Trump’s decision to withdraw is “misguided,” especially because Iran has been complying.Obama also warned: “The consistent flouting of agreements that our country is a party to risks eroding America’s credibility, and puts us at odds with the world’s major powers.”Obama says that without the deal, the U.S. “could eventually be left with a losing choice between a nuclear-armed Iran or another war in the Middle East.”He says the deal remains a model for what diplomacy can accomplish, including when it comes to North Korea.There are few issues more important to the security of the US than the potential spread of nuclear weapons or the potential for even more destructive war in the Middle East.
