The Pasadena Public Health Department advises you to clean up, cover up and use bug repellant to help “fight the bite.”As of July 26, 2016, there have been no reported human cases of mosquito-borne diseases including Zika, West Nile, Chikungunya and Dengue fever in Pasadena this year.While that’s good news locally, California’s drought and residents’ travel plans outside of Pasadena can increase your chances of being bitten by a mosquito, and possibly contracting one of these diseases, if precautions are not taken.“There are some easy things you can to do to help prevent mosquito bites,” Pasadena Public Health Officer Dr. Ying-Ying Goh said. “Clean up habitats where mosquitoes can breed and grow; cover up by wearing long pants and long-sleeved shirts when weather permits, and use bug repellant.”Some mosquito eggs can survive without water and drought cycles of heat and intermittent moisture can actually spur mosquito breeding, said Dr. Goh, who offers the following tips and reminders.Around the home:• Eliminate all outdoor sources of standing water• Use a scrub brush and hot soapy water to clean unused, outdoor containers you intend to keep, such as tires, buckets and flower pots, that have had standing water in them; then turn over those unused containers to prevent new standing water from accumulating inside• Keep swimming pools clean and water circulating; keep filter equipment in good repair• Check for larvae in ornamental water sources and treat as necessary with “mosquito dunks” available from hardware stores• Change bird bath water every five (5) days• Keep ornamental & fish ponds stocked with mosquito fish; use a pump to keep water moving• Screen and cover rain barrelsAt home and when traveling:• Wear repellants containing DEET or oil of lemon eucalyptus• If possible, wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants when outdoors, as conditions permit• Regularly check yourself for bugs and bites if outdoors for long periods• Make sure your hotel or lodging has air conditioning and window screens• Check window screens for holes or tearsWest Nile, Chikungunya and Dengue are not contagious from person to person and are spread through mosquito bites. Although primarily transmitted by mosquitoes, Zika virus can be transmitted by sexual partners. Pregnant women or women who may become pregnant should take precautions against Zika infection because a Zika infection is now known to cause birth defects.The U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention recommends pregnant women postpone travel to areas with ongoing Zika virus issues. If you return from an affected region and experience fever with joint pain or rash within two weeks following your return, contact your doctor immediately.

Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Bank of New York Mellon has issued a warning to the U.S. Supreme Court predicting disaster for the residential mortgage-backed securities market if the nation’s highest court overturns a Second Circuit Court ruling that the bank was not liable for losses incurred by investors as a result of defective securities, according to a report from Law360.In a filing earlier in November, BNY Mellon asked the Supreme Court not to review a decision by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals from December 2014 which found that the mortgage-backed securities in question were not protected under the 1939 Trust Indenture Act (TIA). A group of union pension funds led by the Retirement Board of the Policemen’s Annuity and Benefit Fund of the City of Chicago asked the Second Circuit court to reverse that decision in September 2015, which overturned a district court’s decision that permitted the pension fund to sue BNY Mellon for failing to perform its duties as a trustee on 26 trusts with about $30 billion in balances.The trusts in question contain pools of mortgages serviced by Countrywide Financial, which was acquired by Bank of America in 2008 and has since cost that bank billions of dollars in legal fees and settlements regarding its RMBS practices.The pension funds’ lawsuit suit claims that BNY Mellon failed in its duties as trustee with the securities because it did not intervene when Countrywide failed to perform its duties as servicer, which include reviewing loan files, repurchasing bad loans, or transferring mortgage notes to BNY Mellon. The suit alleges that BNY Mellon was negligent in its duties because it did not ensure that Countrywide performed those duties.A district judge ruled in 2012 that the pension funds would be allowed to bring claims on 26 out of 530 trusts held by BNY Mellon which amounted to an original principal balance of approximately $424 billion. Two years later, that decision was later overturned by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals.The pension funds allege that reversing the Second Circuit Court’s decision and allowing them to sue the bank would improve the RMBS market by improving trustee oversight of the bonds, which would lift the confidence of investors. BNY Mellon disputed that claim in its brief filed with the Supreme Court earlier this month, saying that reversing that decision would force the bank to rewrite contracts worth “trillions” that were believed to be exempt from the TIA at the time they were created. BNY Mellon said in its brief that “[N]othing could be more unsettling to investors than a ruling that, many years after the fact, retroactively changed the terms of contracts governing trillions of dollars worth of investments.” Home / Daily Dose / BNY Mellon Cautions U.S. Supreme Court on RMBS Decision Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Tagged with: BNY Mellon Lawsuits Mortgage-Backed Securities U.S. Supreme Court Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago About Author: Brian Honea Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days agolast_img read more
