He is also an elected Trustee on the San Diego County Employees’ Retirement Association and Vice-Chair of the County’s LGBT and Allies Group.Myers says San Diego County residents are concerned about the department’s “lack of responsiveness to community issues.” These issues include a failure to implement body cameras, the growing opioid problem, lack of transparency on deaths and inmate violence in county jails, and hundreds of rape kits left untested.“I see a need to reinvigorate that conversation with the community about trust,” Myers said, citing the recent arraignment of Deputy Richard Fischer on allegations of sexual assault.He also says residents perceive biased policing with communities of color and LGBT residents. In an interview on Good Morning San Diego, Myers said community policing efforts should be strengthened.“Community-based policing, or what I like to call neighborhood policing, is just getting out and talking to people…we’ve kind of gotten away from that,” Myers said. “Law enforcement started with the idea of being preventative – stopping crimes – and not reactive.”center_img Posted: February 24, 2018 Sheriff candidate Dave Myers pledges greater response to community issues Categories: Good Morning San Diego, Local San Diego News, Politics FacebookTwitterlast_img read more

ASA Urges Strong Support of USDAs Export Programs

first_imgIn a letter sent this week to the House Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittee, the American Soybean Association (ASA) joined farm groups in urging strong support for maintaining funding for the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s export programs, including the Market Access Program (MAP) and Foreign Market Development (FMD) Program. The Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittee marked up and approved the FY13 Agriculture Appropriations bill on June 6. As approved, the legislation includes full funding of $200 million for MAP and $34.5 million for FMD.In the letter, the groups reminded the subcommittee that the increase in market development spending through MAP and FMD since 2002 corresponds to an increase of $6.1 billion in the annual value of U.S. agricultural exports, an increase of U.S. farm cash receipts by $4.4 billion, and an increase in net cash farm income by $1.5 billion.”For every additional $1 expended by government and industry on market development during this period, U.S. food and agricultural exports increased by $35, a 35 to 1 return on investment. At the same time, the study also found that U.S. domestic farm support payments were reduced by roughly $54 million annually due to higher prices from increased demand abroad, thus reducing the net cost of farm programs,” stated the groups in the letter.The House Appropriations Committee is expected to consider the FY13 Agriculture bill the week of June 18. MAP and FMD were also approved at $200 million and $34.5 million respectively in the version of the legislation approved by the Senate Appropriations Committee in late April.ASA represents all U.S. soybean farmers on domestic and international issues of importance to the soybean industry. ASA’s advocacy efforts are made possible through the voluntary membership in ASA by more than 21,000 farmers in 31 states where soybeans are grown.###For more information contact:Patrick Delaney, ASA Communications Director, 202-969-7040, pdelaney@soy.orglast_img read more

What do moms want Togetherness

first_imgLocal moms provide timely ideas for Mother’s Day. Forget brunch.In a random — and completely unscientific — survey of people in Esther Short Park, it’s pedicures and family picnics that Clark County moms want most this Mother’s Day.Sitting on the stone blocks by the clock tower managing five young children, moms Emily Loukkula, 32, Trisha Lagrange, 31, and Christa Hayes, 37, nodded in agreement.“No brunch,” Loukkula and Lagrange said at the same time.“It’s too expensive,” said Loukkula, after shouting at her 5-year-old son Ryker to not stray so far away. Her 3-year-old, Lucy, stayed closer at hand, watching the fountain.“I want to do something outside with my family,” Loukkula said. “I’d like to come to the Saturday market and walk around, let the kids play in the park.”Lagrange, who has two children, Cannen, 6, and Mikayla, 8, said she’d also like to do something outside.“I would like to go and get a pedicure with my daughter, and then maybe a family lunch or picnic in the park,” Lagrange said. “I don’t need all that fancy stuff.”last_img read more

Police investigating downtown Vancouver coin shop

first_imgVancouver police are investigating a rare-coin shop in downtown Vancouver after people complained that they never received their purchases. According to the Vancouver Police Department, people around the country have attempted to buy coins from Blue Moon Coins, which lists 701 Main St. as its address. The complaints allege that although the company took the payment, it never sent the products. Blue Moon Coins sells wholesale precious metals and collectible coins.The Better Business Bureau revoked Blue Moon Coins’ accreditation in December for failing to respond to consumer complaints, and gave the business an F grade.Twenty-five complaints against Blue Moon were logged with the BBB in the past three years. Seventeen of those complaints were resolved with the assistance from the bureau, while several others remain unresolved. The bureau alleges that in many cases Blue Moon took too long to resolve customer complaints. Consumers on the BBB website complained that they spent thousands of dollars on coins from Blue Moon, but they did not get their orders, or they got them late or never got the refund they requested.Harry Gross, 75, of White Oak, Texas, said that he purchased 100 1-ounce coins on Dec. 2 for a total of $2,300. He planned to sell the coins for a small profit. By mid-January, the coins still hadn’t been shipped.last_img read more

Reprising grim role Obama grieves at Fort Hood

first_imgFORT HOOD, Texas — Returning again to a grief-stricken corner of America, President Barack Obama is reprising his role as chief comforter, mourning with families of those killed last week at Fort Hood and offering solace to the nation.It’s a duty Obama has had to fulfill far too often.Tucson. Aurora. Newtown. Boston. Washington Navy Yard. Fort Hood — twice.The names of these communities have all become synonymous with tragedy in the five years since Obama took office, each challenging the president to find ways to impart meaning to senseless death.“Increasingly, giving these eulogies has become a central responsibility for our presidents,” said Michael Waldman, who helped write many eulogies as President Bill Clinton’s chief speechwriter. “A president is not just a political leader. He is the head of state and speaks for the whole country.”But as Obama returns to Fort Hood on Wednesday, he brings little in the way of solutions to offer a society that has been confounded by the frequency of events that have jolted Americans out of their sense of security. For a president who is on the path to ending two wars, warding off violence at home has proved an elusive challenge.Obama and first lady Michelle Obama arrived late Wednesday morning at Fort Hood, where the camouflage fatigues of troops standing to salute his passing motorcade almost blended in with the desert terrain. Flags were lowered to half-staff at the sprawling Army base in central Texas, where Obama was meeting with victims’ relatives before offering his public condolences.last_img read more

Launch of newlook May 2019 edition sees IAG website traffic increase 7000

first_imgThe launch of Inside Asian Gaming’s first monthly edition in Traditional Chinese, combined with the presence of Suncity Group Chairman Alvin Chau on the front cover, saw the IAG website receive more than double its average number of monthly hits in just a single day last week.While IAG already has the widest reach of any B2B gaming industry media brand in Asia with around 150,000 hits per month, asgam.com attracted a record 347,000 hits last Thursday alone – the same day IAG sent the May 2019 Digital Edition to its 20,000-strong database and published on social media, including its 11,500 follower-strong LinkedIn account.There were another 83,000 hits on Friday and 30,000 hits on Saturday.The May edition was the first in IAG’s 155-issue, 15-year history to be published as a bilingual magazine in English and Chinese.“We were previously getting around 150,000 hits per month, nearly 2 million hits per year, which is a pretty good number for a B2B news site covering a specialised industry like gaming and integrated resorts,” said IAG CEO Andrew W Scott.“But the traffic we received on that one day, the day we released the May issue of IAG, was over two months’ traffic on a single day. We have to get used to a new normal of traffic on asgam.com.“We believe the increase is for two reasons: first, the move into Traditional Chinese for the Chinese-reading markets in Macau and Hong Kong, and secondly because we have Mr Alvin Chau on this month’s cover. Mr Chau leads Suncity, Asia’s undisputed leading VIP gaming promoter, and is in his own right a quite famous celebrity.“It’s simply a staggering amount of traffic. We have over half a million hits on our website so far this month, which is a bit more than we would normally receive in an entire quarter. And the two Japan conferences and G2E Asia haven’t even started yet!”The IAG team is in Japan this week to provide extensive coverage from the 1st Japan IR Expo 2019 in Osaka and the Japan Gaming Congress in Tokyo, before returning to Macau next week for G2E Asia, including the G2E Asia Awards, which are co-organised by IAG.IAG is Lead Media Partner of both the 1st Japan IR Expo 2019 and G2E Asia.last_img read more
