Washington lawmakers pass bill for twotier licensing

first_imgOLYMPIA — Washington lawmakers reached agreement Thursday on a two-tiered licensing system that seeks to bring Washington state into compliance with federal identification requirements.With final passage of the measure, lawmakers end a multiyear struggle over how to best comply with the REAL ID Act, a 2005 federal law that requires state driver’s licenses and ID cards to have security enhancements and be issued to people who can prove they are legally in the United States.The House passed the measure on a 55-41 vote, followed by the Senate, which passed it on a 36-13 vote. It now heads to Gov. Jay Inslee for his signature.Washington state already offers, but does not mandate, enhanced driver’s licenses and IDs that require proof of U.S. citizenship and are already valid under the federal law. The measure passed by the Legislature would keep the state’s current enhanced license and would mark standard state licenses as not valid for federal purposes.Under the latest schedule released by the federal government, residents of states that are not in compliance with REAL ID and do not have an extension already need additional identification for access to some military bases and federal facilities and, starting on Jan. 22, 2018, to board commercial flights. Residents of states that have extensions will have until Oct. 21, 2020.last_img read more


Engineer says he misjudged location in fatal Amtrak wreck

first_imgSEATTLE — An engineer told investigators he misjudged the location of an Amtrak train before it derailed in Washington state on a new high-speed route while traveling at nearly 80 mph — more than twice the speed limit around a curve, the National Transportation Safety Board disclosed Thursday.In an NTSB summary of interviews with the engineer and conductor on duty during the deadly crash, the engineer said he knew the curve with a 30 mph speed restriction was at milepost 19.8 and he planned to start braking about a mile before reaching it.But he said he didn’t see a marker at milepost 18 or a nearby 30 mph speed warning sign. The engineer said he then misinterpreted another signal at the 19.8 milepost.He said he applied the brake as soon as he saw a 30 mph sign at the start of the curve, but the train derailed seconds later as it entered the 30 mph zone and plunged off an overpass and onto busy Interstate 5— the Pacific Northwest’s main north-south highway.NTSB board member Bella Dinh-Zarr said days after the wreck that the locomotive’s emergency brake went off automatically and was not manually activated by the engineer.last_img read more

Finding migraine relief with botox

first_imgThe migraines began in 1987. When one struck, Kari Carlson would see black spots and become nauseous. The searing pain would bring her to her knees.Each migraine would last three to five days. She would have them at least once a month, usually about the same time as her menstrual cycle.But about 10 years ago, the migraines changed. They became more frequent, sometimes daily, and the symptoms are different. Instead of seeing spots, Carlson, 53, sees double. The double-vision means Carlson can’t drive, can’t work, can’t function. Pain radiates across the her head. She often vomits. Each headache lingers, sometimes for days, until another migraine strikes.For years, Carlson tried to manage her pain and chronic migraines with over-the-counter medication, mainly ibuprofen or Excedrin Migraine. Nothing gave her relief.Doctors offered few solutions. Some prescribed preventive drugs; they never worked. Some recommended narcotic pain medication, which Carlson didn’t want. Others told her migraines were just going to be a part of her life.“It’s very discouraging as a patient,” Carlson said. “Nobody could fix me.”But now, Carlson is finding relief from a somewhat unexpected source: Botox.In July, in the midst of a particularly severe migraine, Keith Carlson drove his wife to the emergency department. Hospital staff suspected a stroke and ordered an MRI and other tests. Turns out, Carlson was having a severe, complicated migraine — the symptoms of which tend to mimic those of a stroke.last_img read more


Stock indexes rally as Chinas president eases trade fears

first_imgNEW YORK — Stocks jumped Tuesday after Chinese President Xi Jinping said Beijing would reduce tariffs on imported cars and improve intellectual property protection, steps that could ease trade tensions. Facebook climbed as CEO Mark Zuckerberg testified before the Senate about the company’s privacy scandal.Xi’s proposals could help the U.S. and China resolve their differences and avert a trade dispute that slows down global commerce. The dialing back of tensions helped send the price of crude oil up 3.3 percent.“The market’s increasing expectation is that the two sides will sit down now,” said Paul Christopher, head of global market strategy for Wells Fargo Investment Institute, although stocks could bounce around as those negotiations proceed. “There’s still a lot at stake because you have a global supply chain that could be interrupted because of tariffs.”Facebook, Twitter and Snap rallied as Senators questioned Mark Zuckerberg about the Cambridge Analytica privacy scandal that has engulfed the company over the last four weeks. Technology companies have stumbled as investors wondered if the government will implement tighter regulations on technology companies, and those worries eased Tuesday. Zuckerberg will testify before the House of Representatives Wednesday.The S&P 500 index surged 43.71 points, or 1.7 percent, to 2,656.87. The Dow gained 428.90 points, or 1.8 percent, to 24,408. Shortly before noon it rose as much as 532 points. The Nasdaq composite added 143.96 points, or 2.1 percent, to 7,094.30. The Russell 2000 index of smaller-company stocks advanced 28.97 points, or 1.9 percent, to 1,543.43.last_img read more


County operator of Chelatchie Prairie Railroad agree to mediation

first_imgClark County and the operator of the Chelatchie Prairie Railroad have agreed to mediation after weeks of acrimony and uncertainty surrounding a key legal agreement.Eric Temple, the president of the Portland Vancouver Junction Railroad, said in an email on Tuesday that he would agree to mediation with Clark County regarding the lease he holds to operate the 33-mile Chelatchie Prairie Railroad, which is owned by the county.Since last year, the county has been applying Senate Bill 5517, a revision to state land-use law that was signed into law last year and allows for freight-dependent industrial development along the railroad. During the process, the validity of the lease, which Temple’s company has held since 2012, has come under scrutiny. Earlier this month, Temple blocked a nonprofit from using a stretch of the railroad for a holiday ride out of concerns that he would be exposed to liability if the lease was invalid.The county has maintained an ambiguous position on the lease after David McDonald, a lawyer for environmental group Friends of Clark County, questioned if it had been properly authorized by the county’s legislative authority. Council Chair Marc Boldt has publicly questioned the lease’s validity, but the county has indicated it would treat it as valid unless a proper legal authority found otherwise.On Dec. 12, the Clark County Council quietly authorized county Manager Shawn Henessee to enter into mediation with Temple. Under the agreement, both parties agree to “abide by and honor” the terms of the lease for 90 days while they undergo mediation.last_img read more

De Bruyne deserved PFA award – Neville

first_imgGary Neville believes that Kevin De Bruyne deserved the PFA Player of the Year award more than Mohamed SalahThe Liverpool star beat De Bruyne to the award last Sunday after a sensational debut campaign for his new club.While it was Salah who the prestigious individual award, many people had believed that De Bruyne would have been voted the winner by his fellow peers for his standout performances in Manchester City’s dominant season in the Premier League.Neville confirmed to Sky Sports that he would have voted in the Belgium midfielder’s favour.“If I was still a voting member I would have personally given the PFA Player of Year to Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne. That’s not because I believe it has to go to the league winners or that Mo Salah doesn’t deserve it,” said the former Manchester United captain, according to Sports Mole.Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, LiverpoolMo Salah laughs off Sadio Mane incident with a brilliant video Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Mohamed Salah laughed off his little spat with Liverpool team-mate Sadio Mane by posting a brilliant video showing they’ve made up.“Salah has impressed more people in the game, that’s a matter of fact. In a democracy, the players who have played against him have voted for him. I can’t disagree with giving it to Salah, who has achieved above and beyond what we expected from him this season.“However, I would have edged to De Bruyne because his performances have been like artwork and, in terms of his assists and controlling football matches, he has just been magical to watch. We heap praise on certain players and I have not got one negative word to say about him.“The work he does off the ball is unbelievable, although I certainly wouldn’t have enjoyed playing against Salah.”Salah is now just four goals shy of breaking Ian Rush’s goalscoring record for Liverpool of 47 goals in a single season.last_img read more

I don’t have a problem with Wes.”“We had a problem with the concentration and focus, and we conceded two goals to the only moves from this team. We conceded from their first two moves. We have to correct this.”“We took the counter attack and created good chances for us, and they use this opportunity very well. We have to correct this for the future.”Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.Meanwhile, new signing Caglar Soyuncu might be ready to step in for the suspended Morgan, despite struggling with the U-23s on Sunday.“We have a solution of course,” said Puel.“We have good players with Jonny Evans and with Soyuncu, and we will see with calm next week.“It will be an opportunity for the players to show their quality and I am not afraid about this.“My concern is just this game will be an accident for the future. That is my last thought because we deserved other things from the beginning of the season.“It is a shame but we have responsibility, I am responsible, and together we will correct this.”last_img read more

VAT Accountability demanded by Bahamians State Minister slammed over speech at PLP

first_img The Luxury of Grace Bay in Down Town Provo And they were, among them FNM Chairman, Sidney Collie who is now calling on the PLP Government to tell Bahamians the truth.  Collie is joined by the Democratic National Alliance and Greg Moss, the MP for Marco City who disagree with pronouncements by Mr. Halkitis.  In a media statement Collie said Bahamians will not believe the rhetoric and that Bahamians reject the new explanation that VAT monies did not go to pay off debt, but to fund projects.  In a radio talk show, Minister Halkitis was taken to task for the breakdown of the monies to projects.  The PLP Administration in this presentation by the State Minister also said it provided $12 million for the COB to University of The Bahamas transition and they have doubled scholarship funded from $7.73 million to $16.3 million.   Another $150 million to the National Health Insurance plan, $100 million to Bahamasair for a new fleet of aircraft and $232 million on border and marine resources protection.  No schools he was reminded have been built in four and a half years of the 2012 Perry Christie Administration, so what did he mean when he said VAT money went there… “We are building new schools and have invested tens of millions of dollars in repairs and upgrades of existing schools, thus empowering our young people.  That’s where the VAT money gone.”  Electricity Cost of Service Study among the big agenda items at September 11 Cabinet meeting However, when asked this week about spending on all of the above Mr. Halkitis had to give a different version of events.  The State Minister for Finance instead explained that VAT money was used to help secure the loan for Bahamasair new planes and needs for improved border security and that some of the VAT money has been earmarked for assistance with NHI – not yet spent as he said during convention.  Halkitis defended that he did not believe he misrepresented the facts in his presentation.  Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp ALERT # 2 ON POTENTIAL TROPICAL CYCLONE NINE ISSUED BY THE BAHAMAS DEPARTMENT OF METEOROLOGY THURSDAY 12TH SEPTEMBER, 2019 AT 9 PM EDT Related Items:#magneticmedianews Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppNassau, Bahamas, January 31, 2017 – It sounded rhythmic and it did rouse the party base during the recent PLP convention but now Bahamians are blasting the State Minister for finance for making hyped up claims which many believe are simply untrue.   That’s where the VAT money went was the recurrent chorus by Michael Halkitis on opening night of the Progressive Liberal Party’s Convention but Opposition challenges, fact checking and media interviews do not bear those claims out and challenged the Minister firmly on his now controversial speech.  VAT was introduced in 2015 with tremendous national push back, still it passed into law that 7.5% would be charged on most goods and services.  The tax far exceeded expectations and reportedly raised around a billion dollars, with some $850 million said to have been collected. The question was a lingering one, where did the money from VAT go and so Minister Halkitis’ use of the PLP podium to make the announcement was a sound decision, thousands would be watching.  Still, those criticizing his speech express that they are more interested in hard facts, truths and evidence on the billion dollar VAT spending than they are with semantics.  Branville McCartney of the DNA called for the Central Revenue Agency which was supposed to be established as an oversight body for the Value Added Tax.  McCartney said the PLP is guilty of wasteful spending and went 100 times over budget and now the Party is using VAT money to make up for errors at tax payers’ expense.#MagneticMediaNewslast_img read more

Allegri We need to think ahead like Ronaldo

first_imgMax Allegri praised his players after beating SPAL but wants them to emulate  Cristiano Ronaldo who thinks ahead of the next moveGoals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Mario Mandzukic were enough to wrap up three points for the current defending Champions.“It wasn’t easy, as we had only 20 points in the last 10 games after a break for international duty,” the Coach told Football Italia.“We struggled more in the first half than the second, whereas we changed a few things with Douglas Costa behind Ronaldo and Mandzukic, so that helped the team both on and off the ball.“Douglas Costa had a bit of a rough period due to injuries and other issues, but he put in a good performance this evening, above all in terms of personality.Franck Ribery, FiorentinaFiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.“Rodrigo Bentancur has improved a great deal, although he still needs a little step forward when on the ball, as he has to pick the right pass. Timing is very important in these situations to find your teammate in a good position.“Miralem Pjanic and Bentancur had to stay fairly static in midfield, otherwise we’d risk SPAL going on the counter-attack.“Ronaldo moves and thinks so quickly, he saw Douglas Costa coming out the corner of his eye and pulled the pass back. We need to all improve in that sense, being able to think ahead to the next move.“I do look at the characteristics of the opponents, but I make my choices above all based on motivation and determination. Every now and then, a spell on the bench is good for players, especially if they play all the time and can get a bit sleepy.“It’s a very competitive squad. Daniele Rugani is a very good defender, but we have five excellent defenders. Medhi Benatia played against Milan because it was his kind of game, he had to get the crosses in the box.”last_img read more
