53 Million Awarded To Those Affected By 2016 Gulf Of Alaska Pink

first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享An announcement was made on Tuesday by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) that the agency approved $53.8 million to restore losses for Alaska fisheries impacted by the 2016 Gulf of Alaska pink salmon fishery disaster. NOAA approved and transferred the funds to the Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission, the agency tasked with distributing the relief payments to fishermen and their deckhands, processors, and for salmon research in the affected regions. Alaska’s Congressional Delegation released a joint statement: “This funding has been a long-time coming. We are pleased that Alaskans who have been waiting for this economic relief that was promised to them will finally receive it. By restoring losses incurred during the 2016 pink salmon disaster, our federal government is following through not only on the commitment we made to Alaska’s commercial fisherman, but also to their families, processors, and coastal communities who were hit hard by this disaster.” In January 2017, the Secretary of Commerce declared the 2016 Gulf of Alaska pink salmon fishery disaster due to disastrously low returns. The following Alaska areas were included in the disaster declaration for poor pink salmon harvests in 2016: Prince William Sound, Kodiak Management, Chignik Management, Lower Cook Inlet Management, Yakutat, South Alaska Peninsula, and Southeast.last_img read more

Drunken driver injures 28 in US Mardi Gras parade

Photo: AFPA pickup truck driven by a man who appeared to be “highly intoxicated” plowed into a crowd of spectators watching the main Mardi Gras parade in New Orleans on Saturday, sending more than 20 people to the hospital, police said.The truck, traveling along the side of the street open to traffic along the Mid-City parade route, struck three other vehicles, including a dump truck, before veering onto the median where a crowd of people stood watching the procession, according to New Orleans police.Five people were being treated at hospital trauma centers, and an investigation is ongoing, police said.Police immediately apprehended the pickup driver, who according to eyewitnesses interviewed by Fox television affiliate WVEU-TV appeared disheveled, glassy-eyed and under the influence of drugs or alcohol.Mayor Mitch Landrieu in a statement referred to the suspect as a “drunk driver.”Video footage from the scene showed pandemonium immediately following the early evening incident, but the Krewe of Endymion parade, the largest and most popular of numerous Mardi Gras season parades in New Orleans, continued with little or no interruption.A total of 28 people were injured, 21 of whom were taken to local hospitals, including one police officer. Seven others who were hurt declined transport, Police Chief Michael Harrison told a news conference.Local media reports said 12 people were initially listed as critically injured.Harrison said police believed the motorist who was arrested was “highly intoxicated” and was being questioned at the police department’s drunken-driving office.The Federal Bureau of Investigation in New Orleans said its agents were “coordinating with our federal, state and local law enforcement partners to determine whether a federal violation has occurred.”The Endymion parade incident was not the only one to mar Mardi Gras festivities in New Orleans on Saturday.

HC asks DU not to treat law centre in stepmotherly way

first_imgThe Delhi High Court on Wednesday asked the Delhi University not to treat its the three law colleges, which have been in controversy recently for alleged non-compliance of the Bar Council Of India (BCI) norms, in a “step-motherly” way.A bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw said that the Delhi University’s (DU) law schools are very much part of the varsity and closing down will affect the future of the students. “The three law centres are very much part of the DU,” the court said, adding that they should not be treated in a a step-motherly way. The court said this when it was informed that the BCI inspection committee that had visited and reported on the state of affairs was of the firm view that the DU’s three law schools should be closed down. The inspection committee has recommended that the DU’s law centres failed to comply with 17 conditions listed and it should not be allowed to admit new batches of students. The court was hearing a PIL filed by Tarun Narang seeking setting aside of a notification barring fresh law graduates of the DU from being enrolled as lawyers.last_img read more

Democracy will perish if BJP is voted back to power CM

first_imgShamshi, Pakuahat, Kaliachowk (Malda North/South): Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee said there will be no democracy in India if the fascist BJP government under Narendra Modi gets voted back to power.”BJP will not come back but if they are voted back to power then the fascist government under Modi will bid goodbye to democracy in India,” she said. Banerjee addressed three rallies at Shamshi, Pakuahat and Kaliachowk in North and South Malda, where elections will be held on April 23. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataMalda and Murshidabad are two districts where Trinamool Congress did not have any MP until recently. Both the MPs in Malda were from Congress, until Mausam Benazir Noor joined Trinamool Congress. AHA Khan Chowdhury had won the Malda South seat by 1.64 lakh votes, while Mausam had won the Malda North seat by over 65,000 votes. Both the ministers in Mamata Banerjee’s cabinet, Krishnendu Narayan Chowdhury and Sabitri Mitra, had lost in the 2016 Assembly election. But the Trinamool supremo is expecting a change in the Congress stronghold this time. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in stateRecalling her long association with Congress, Banerjee said: “As a Congress worker I felt that it was not possible to oust CPI(M) from Bengal as Congress made compromises with the party. Trinamool Congress was set up in 1998 and because of Trinamool, CPI(M) was ousted from Bengal. Trinamool does not make any compromise with any party,” she said, adding: “I asked Mausam to join Trinamool because she is a genuine worker. She will work for the people.” Criticising Congress, Banerjee said the party “Does not work and always refers to the work which had been carried out by ABA Ghani Khan Chowdhury many decades ago,” she pointed out. Coming down heavily on BJP, she said: “BJP is a fascist government that survives on lies. Their leaders come from Delhi and speak lies to create confusion among the people. The statistics they put forward are concocted and full of lies.” Banerjee said in the past five years, the condition of common people has turned from bad to worse under the BJP government. “From banning of high value notes to hasty implementation of GST, the economic condition of India has been badly hit. Thousands of people have lost their jobs and the farmers are committing suicide. Bengal is the only state where the premium of crop insurance is paid by the state government. We take care of the farmers and working class,” she said. Banerjee maintained that the attitude of the parents towards their daughters has changed because of the Kanyashree scheme. Under the scheme, girls can carry on with higher education with the help of state government scholarship. “Kanyashree has not only bagged a prestigious award from the United Nations, but has also changed the attitude of parents towards their daughters. Daughters are no longer their burdens,” she said. She said after Bangladesh stopped import of mangoes from Malda, Bengal government opened business with Saudi Arabia and other Middle Eastern countries, where mangoes are being exported now. There will be an export centre in malda soon along with a new airport, she maintained. She urged the voters to cast their votes in favour of Mausam in North Malda and Moazzem Hossain in Malda South. “Do not waste your vote by casting it in favour of Congress or CPI(M). If you vote in favour of Congress or CPI(M), you will actually strengthen the hand of BJP. Vote for Mausam and Hossain saab, who will work for the development of Malda,” the Trinamool supremo said.last_img read more
