(Matthew Hall) Eighty-one new COVID-19 cases have been confirmed in Santa Monica since May 1, with 42 new cases confirmed in the first week of May, 29 in the second and 10 in the third.The city now has 245 confirmed cases and 16 deaths. There have been 168 cases and 26 deaths among residents and staff of Santa Monica nursing homes.Santa Monica’s death rate adjusted for its age distribution is 12.4 per 100,000 people, the second-highest death rate among Westside cities, according to a county data dashboard.Culver City has a death rate of 23 per 100,000 people, Beverly Hill’s rate is 7.8, West Hollywood’s is 7.3 and Malibu’s is 4.5.Across Los Angeles County, the number of confirmed cases has surpassed 43,000 and more than 2,000 people have died from COVID-19, Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said Friday.The number of people hospitalized has dropped slightly each day over the last two weeks to roughly 1,500, she said. More than 412,000 people have been tested and 9% have tested positive.More than 9 in 10 people who have died from COVID-19 had underlying health conditions, and more than 5 in 10 resided in nursing homes.Ferrer said 1 in 3 county residents have conditions that would put them at greater risk of dying from COVID-19 and those residents should continue to stay at home as much as possible even as the county reopens.People living in poor communities are four times more likely to die from COVID-19 compared to people living in affluent communities, Ferrer said.Poor areas have a death rate of 41 per 100,000 people and wealthy areas have a death rate of 11 per 100,000 people.She said although the number of Native Hawaiians/Pacific Islanders who have died from COVID-19 is small, they have by far the highest death rate of any ethnic group at 100 per 100,000 people.African Americans and Latinos have death rates of 26 and 22, while the death rate is 16 for Asians and 13 for whites.“The data remains deeply disturbing and it will require a lot of collaboration and work with our partners to address these inequities,” Ferrer said.She asked county residents to wear face coverings at all times and maintain at least six feet of space from others if they choose to visit outdoor spaces this holiday weekend.Whether people continue to take precautions against infection will determine how many new cases, hospitalizations and deaths the county sees in a few weeks from now, Ferrer said. She said the county has been able to trace some new outbreaks to parties and gatherings held over the last couple of weeks.“Gatherings and events of any kind are still not permitted,” she said. “The virus has not changed and it is still relatively easy to become infected.”[email protected] :coronavirusCOVID-19share on Facebookshare on Twittershow 2 comments Mike M says: center_img Noma property owner shoots man who entered vacant houseSan Francisco sanctions once-shunned homeless encampmentsYou Might Also LikeFeaturedNewsBobadilla rejects Santa Monica City Manager positionMatthew Hall6 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 agoNewsBruised but unbowed, meme stock investors are back for moreAssociated Press17 hours agoNewsWedding boom is on in the US as vendors scramble to keep upAssociated Press17 hours ago Good news about cov 19 slowing down, But, it may not continue if people on the bike bath do not wear masks.

Prosafe mobilizes ‘Safe Scandinavia’ for Statoil gig

first_imgProafe’s tender support vessel Safe Scandinavia has completed onshore acceptance testing and is now mobilizing to the Oseberg Øst installation in the North Sea to start drilling support operations for Statoil.The Safe Scandinavia was converted from a semi-submersible accommodation rig to a tender support vessel at the Westcon yard in Ølensvåg, Norway. The rig arrived at the yard for its conversion work approximately a year ago.The work was originally scheduled to be completed in the first half of 2015. However, the project experienced delays thereby also delaying the contract start with the Norwegian oil company Statoil.Prosafe is responsible for the provision of mud services to the Oseberg Øst installation in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea together with all marine operations of the tender support vessel (TSV) under a three-year contract the two companies inked in July 2014.According to Prosafe, the Safe Scandinavia will continue to perform accommodation duties to support the installation via a telescopic gangway.The contract will start upon completion of mobilisation, which is expected towards the end of March, the owner of the vessel added.The Safe Scandinavia was built in 1984, upgraded in 2003, completed a life extension refurbishment in 2014, and finally converted in 2016.Offshore Energy Today Stafflast_img read more

We have the power

first_imgSunil Kambli is absolutely correct. All the Law Society, with the agreement of the master of the rolls, has to do is to require borrower and lender to seek separate representation and the problem of restricted lenders’ panels will be overcome at a stroke. Let them have their panel of 43: it won’t matter. It will involve some rise in the cost of domestic conveyancing, but that cost is unreasonably low now and has not kept pace with: house price inflation; the cost of running a responsibly conducted legal practice; or the costs reasonably charged in other areas of legal work. When costs are too low, work is sometimes done shoddily, and our premiums rise. Everyone knows this. None of this cheapskate work is in the national interest, no matter how much the ‘poundstretcher’ British may be mistakenly obsessed with value for money. Essentially, the public has had conveyancing at a discount for years, with utterly predictable results. From time to time it has received what it had paid for and that all has to stop. Obvious advantages of the new rule will be that there will be twice the opportunity for something missed to be spotted in time. We are only human and things sometimes escape us. There is too much money involved in domestic conveyancing for mistakes to slip by unnoticed. Also, the possibility of a conflict of interest arising will necessarily disappear. It will need to be said that any solicitor, notary or conveyancer acting in a transaction will not be discharging their duty of care to the lender just by sending out a checklist with boxes to tick, culminating in a certificate of title from the person acting for the borrower, which allows the lender’s solicitor to avoid investigating the title by relying on that certificate instead. There has been too much of that recently; so, when a solicitor acts for a lender, all the proper work must be done and the certificate on title to the lender must come from its own legal advisers in reliance principally on its own research, including correspondence with the borrower’s solicitors. Therefore, I demand that a practice rule be made as soon as possible to prevent any legal practice acting for both borrower and lender in the one transaction. Exactly the same rule needs to be put in place simultaneously by the Notaries Society and the Council for Licensed Conveyancers. What are we waiting for? Do we want to stay in practice or not? It will save a lot of agonising meetings with lenders like HSBC, fighting a rearguard action. Actually, the threat of bringing in such a rule would give the Law Society negotiators rather more clout when knocking on HSBC’s door, if anyone still wants to keep knocking. Anyway, we have the solution within our power, so let’s do it and be less timid. The lenders are not timid: they just do what they like.

Danny Simpsoncenter_img This Ohio High School Football Review is brought to you by the Learned Owl Bookstore in Hudson, Ohio CUYAHOGA HEIGHTS, OHIO – Coming into this game, the Cuyahoga Heights Redskins are 4-0 overall and 1-0 in conference play, and are absolutely focused on nothing other than being 5-0 by the end of the game. Cardinal Huskies are currently 1-3 overall and 0-1 in conference play.The game would start off with the Redskins scoring on a 9-yard touchdown run from senior quarterback Brett Lowther; the point-after-touchdown (PAT) would be good from kicker Mark Shafer. Cuyahoga Heights, on their first defensive series, would force a 3 & out which they would capitalize on with a 21-yard touchdown run from Lucas D’Orazio. PAT would be good and the Redskins would lead the Huskies 13-0 at the end of the opening quarter. The second quarter, Huskies would force a Redskins fumble backed up near their own end zone, which seemed to spark some energy in Huskies. However, the Huskies themselves would turn the ball over on downs in the red-zone with 6:38 left in the first half. And after a long drive from the Redskins, D’Orazio would punch in another TD with a booming 1-yard run. Redskins extend their lead to 20. And then for some late first half drama, the refs would “inadvertently throw” a penalty flag on a play in which the Redskins intercepted the ball in the 5-yard line and returned for a touch down. The flag seemed to be thrown for pass interference on the Redskins, later, the referee who “threw” the flag said it “fell out of his pocket” according to one of the Huskie coaching assistants. The interception returned for a TD by Dylan Drummond would stand. The half would then be cut 11 seconds short due to one of the stadium light polls losing power. The score at the half; Redskins 27, Huskies 0. As for he second half, the Redskins would score 2 more times in the 3rd quarter, once from Lowther on a 13-yard run, and a 70-yard run from back-up QB Ryan Polk. The Redskins defense would also come up with yet another interception. The score by the end of the 3rd quarter would be Redskins 41, Huskies 0. However, the Redskins defense would not be able to shutout the Huskies. The Huskies would score twice in the 4th quarter. Their first TD would come from Kyle Simms on a 34-yard run. PAT would be no good. And the second TD would come courtesy of Jacob Gotham on a hard-hitting 5 yard run. Both teams would end the games with their back-up squads. Your final score; Redskins 41, Huskies 13. The Redskins now have an overall record of 5-0 and the Huskies overall record of 1-4. Next up for both schools, Cuyahoga Heights takes on Richmond Heights at home for another conference game, and Cardinal matches up against Harding at Cardinal High School. With the regular season on the back-end, the playoffs will be here before you know it. last_img read more
