Eight new flu cases today at local migrant shelter

first_img June 3, 2019 Eight new flu cases today at local migrant shelter KUSI Newsroom, KUSI Newsroom SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – San Diego County health officials announced the confirmation today of eight new flu cases at a local migrant shelter, but the outbreak among the shelter’s asylum seekers may be waning.Officials with the county’s Health and Human Services Agency have confirmed a total of 149 cases of “influenza-like illness” since May 19 among asylum-seeking migrants at the Bankers Hill shelter operated by Jewish Family Service of San Diego. Monday was the first day of confirmed cases in the single digits since May 27.The county is currently quarantining 27 asylum seekers in local hotels, also the lowest total since May 27, in an attempt to end the flu outbreak. County health officials have screened more than 800 migrants at the shelter for flu symptoms since May 19.The county defines an outbreak as one person contracted an illness and a second person contracting it and showing symptoms within 72 hours. The county first announced the outbreak May 23.Federal immigration authorities announced May 17 that they would begin flying detained asylum seekers in groups of around 130 from the Rio GrandeValley in Texas to San Diego for processing at local U.S. Custom and Border Protection stations like Brown Field. Once processed, the migrants are releasedinto the county and often end up at the Bankers Hill shelter, which offers humanitarian aid and services.The transfers are intended to alleviate the strain on overwhelmed immigration agents in the Rio Grande Valley. According to the Department ofHomeland Security, CBP agents are currently holding about 8,000 asylum seekers in their McAllen, Texas, facility, double its maximum occupancy.County officials say they plan to continue monitoring the outbreak and providing updates on new flu cases at the shelter. The county is also treating people at the shelter who are not showing symptoms to prevent them from contracting the virus. center_img Posted: June 3, 2019 Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter Updated: 10:08 PMlast_img read more

TPA Fails in Senate

first_imgThe Senate failed in its attempt to invoke cloture and proceed to voting today on the Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities and Accountability Act, which would have granted Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) to the White House.This means that, barring a last minute compromise today, the bill will not come to the floor for a vote this week. Extension of TPA is a critical priority for ASA in the 114th Congress, and in the coming days, ASA will reach out to farmers with a coordinated effort to contact Senate offices and urge forward progress on the issue. While today is certainly a setback for the effort to pass TPA and puts yet another barrier to finalization of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), it is hardly the end of the matter, and we will need added efforts from each ASA farmer member–especially in states with Democratic Senators–to build support for TPA.last_img read more

House Committee Fully Funds Programs to Expand Foreign Ag Markets for US

first_imgThe House Appropriations Committee passed its FY 2016 agriculture appropriations bill on Wednesday, providing for full-funding ($34.5 million) of the Foreign Market Development Program (FMD) and the Market Access Program (MAP) at ($200 million).The FMD program helps to develop, maintain and expand long-term export markets for U.S. agricultural products. Soybean farmers benefit from the FMD program because it aids in building and expanding foreign market share for American soybeans, which represent the nation’s leading agricultural export.The MAP program is in its 30th year and has proven itself to be a successful partnership between the federal government and private industry. MAP helps us to promote our products overseas through promotions, market research and trade servicing.Both MAP and FMD are cost share programs, and require investment and partnership from farmers. In short, we have skin in the game, and as partners, we’ve helped to build an additional $6.1 billion in farm exports since 2002, and increased cash receipts on American farms by $4.4 billion.At this time there are no indications when the bill will go before the full House. The Senate Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittee is expected to markup its FY ‘16 agriculture appropriations bill next Tuesday, July 14.last_img read more

RFS Final Rule Provides Stability and Modest Growth for Biodiesel

first_imgThe U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released the Final Rule setting the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) volume requirements, including the volume requirements for biomass-based diesel for 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017 on Monday. The American Soybean Association (ASA) appreciates EPA, the U.S Department of Agriculture(USDA) and the Obama Administration for their contributions to this Final Rule that provides some stability and modest growth for the U.S. biodiesel industry.The Final Rule sets the biomass-based diesel volumes at the following levels:2014 – 1.63 billion gallons2015 – 1.73 billion gallons2016 – 1.9 billion gallons2017 – 2.0 billion gallonsThese volume levels represent a modest improvement over the Proposed Rule. The Proposed Rule called for 1.63 billion gallons in 2014, 1.7 in 2015, 1.8 in 2016 and 1.9 in 2017.The volumes established by EPA will provide some certainty to biodiesel producers and feedstock providers and will continue to generate many benefits for consumers and the environment. As outlined in the comments submitted by the ASA in July, the benefits of biodiesel include a more diversified energy market; increased domestic energy production; reductions in greenhouse gas emissions; new jobs and economic development; expanded markets; and reduced soy meal feed costs.While the volumes in the Final Rule do not fully capitalize on the capacity and growth potential of U.S. biodiesel, it does provide a step in the right direction.“We are glad to see the volumes for biomass-based diesel increased above the Proposed Rule and previous proposals,” ASA President Wade Cowan said. “Biodiesel provides significant economic and environmental benefits and we have the capacity to do more. The Administration wants to address climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions and biodiesel can contribute more to that effort.”Biodiesel is a domestically produced, renewable fuel that is proven to achieve emissions reductions ranging from 57 to 86 percent and is the first and only Advanced Biofuel to reach commercial-scale production nationwide. Biodiesel has made up the vast majority of Advanced Biofuel production under the RFS to date.”As an industry we have always advocated for RFS volumes that are modest and achievable and the biodiesel industry has met or exceeded the targets each and every year that the program has been in place,” Cowan said.Accounting for approximately half of the feedstock used, soybean oil remains the largest source of oil for biodiesel production.The ASA wishes to specifically acknowledge the role of the USDA and the efforts of Secretary Vilsack and his team, which have consistently demonstrated their understanding and support for the benefits that the RFS provides for farmers and rural communities.By law, EPA is supposed to finalize biomass-based diesel volumes 14 months in advance of the applicable year, making the agency significantly overdue in setting the volumes for 2014, 2015 and 2016.“This Final Rule will get the RFS implementation back on track and hopefully enable the EPA to remain on schedule in future years,” Cowan said.last_img read more

Blazers bench is not sitting out in win over Chicago

first_img PORTLAND — They won’t stroll to the scorer’s table then immediately hoist jumpers like Chicago’s instant-offense Nate Robinson.Collectively, they’ll spend most of the game with their warmups still buttoned.And as individuals, none of them will likely receive votes for NBA Sixth Man of the Year, as those honors usually go to reserve players who log plenty minutes and score like starters.But they’re the Portland Trail Blazers bench, and right now they’re performing plenty fine, thank you very much.During the Blazers’ 102-94 win over the Chicago Bulls, the starters all reached double figures while the bench, for its part, contributed in smart and subtle ways.Ronnie Price scored — he hasn’t shown much of an offensive punch this season, but neither have his bench mates. But on Sunday night he dropped 10 points and handed out a team-high five assists.Jared Jeffries scored four points and grabbed four rebounds, and made his homestate Indiana basketball purists proud with his biggest contribution: setting innumerable screens and forcing Chicago into three offensive fouls, two as charges. Jeffries also stayed on the floor for 22-plus minutes – his soon-to-be 31-year-old body hasn’t recorded that much playing time since Feb. 22 when he was still a New York Knick.Before tipoff, coach Terry Stotts described the bench through the last two games as being “productive in the context of how they play.” Ring this one up as a third straight productive night — and maybe it’s a coincidence but the Blazers (5-5) have won all three games.

Vancouver man falls from bed of moving truck dies

first_imgA Vancouver man died after he fell out of the bed of a moving pickup truck in the Hazel Dell area early Saturday morning, according to the Clark County Sheriff’s Office.Deputies and medical personnel responded to the 2400 block of Northwest 116th Street about 3 a.m. Saturday for the incident. Luke A. Sperline, 23, was in the bed of a 1999 Ford F150 that was traveling east on Northwest 116th Street when he reportedly tried to stand up and accidentally fell out of the truck, Sgt. Fred Neiman said. Sperline suffered significant head injuries in the fall and was treated at the scene by first responders before he was taken to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center where he later died, Neiman said. All of the passengers, which included one person in the cab and a second person in the bed of the truck, had been consuming intoxicating beverages, Neiman said. The driver of the truck, Kyle Steven Legato, 23, of Vancouver, did not appear to be under the influence of intoxicants nor was the vehicle driving at an excessive speed, Neiman said. Legato consented to a toxicology blood test. The sheriff’s office continues to investigate the incident.last_img read more

State Some prospective pot shops may get the boot

first_imgTwo prospective Vancouver pot shops that haven’t moved forward with the licensing process will have 60 days to do so before they get bumped off the Liquor Control Board list, a representative of the agency said.The board began sending letters to 56 of those applicants around the state on Wednesday, informing them that they must schedule an interview with a licensing inspector within that time or their applications will be considered closed.In an email to The Columbian, Mikhail Carpenter, a spokesman for the board, said the two shops in question are owned by RWZ LLC. RWZ LLCs two prospective stores are among four potential stores in Vancouver that haven’t yet opened, and there are few details about where any of them are in the process. Only two of the six stores allocated for the city have opened so far: Main Street Marijuana and New Vansterdam.If two stores get bumped off the list, Main Street Marijuana manager Ramsey Hamide will get one of the new slots. He’s two down on the waiting list under the name RKHAM LLC.last_img read more
