First published on pagina12.com.ar on March 10. Translation by Michael Otto.March 10 — The night from Friday to Saturday brought some calm to Venezuela. Electricity returned in 70 percent of the country after more than 24 hours of power cuts. In each home, the same gestures were repeated — plugging in refrigerators and telephones, communicating, and opening faucets so water flowed from electrical pumps.In the morning the lines in the streets multiplied to get food that people can barely afford due to hyperinflation. The electric power returned temporarily. It was 11:30 on Saturday morning.By that time the opposition was already assembled on Victoria Avenue in Caracas for the mobilization that Juan Guaidó called last Monday when he returned to the country after visiting Colombia, Brazil, Paraguay, Argentina and Chile. It was the main activity on his agenda after a meeting with some public administration unions on Tuesday.Chavismo, in turn, assembled in the center-west of Caracas before proceeding to the Miraflores Palace. Dates like this March 9 — the fourth anniversary of Obama’s decree declaring Venezuela an unusual and extraordinary threat — are usually a demonstration of the contending class forces, of images where the city is divided by zones in which the people turn their backs on each other aesthetically and politically. Chavismo is dressed in red and the opposition in white. The social class divide is marked, with a majority of popular sectors and a few middle classes participating with Chavismo and an inverse proportion participating with the right wing.The mobilizations took shape in the context of the latest power cut, its consequent effects of exhaustion, anger and uncertainty, with danger in hospitals and factories. The information circulating through networks was limited; WhatsApp groups were almost inactive; the facts, few and far between, were only corroborated as time went by.Guaidó, who spoke through a bullhorn, announced that he will call for a new mobilization in Caracas. He set no date. “We have to seize and conquer power, take over spaces … we must be united so that we all come together, so that all of Venezuela comes to Caracas. They want to demobilize us, it is up to us.”Guaidó’s remarks were well received among his followers. Tension grew, with those in the crowd calling for “intervention” and Guaidó’s relatively weak response. He declared he could appeal to Article 187 of the Constitution, which would open the door to intervention, as he put it, “when the time comes.” The demand [for imperialist intervention] has been growing strongly in right-wing sectors since Feb. 23, when the trucks failed to enter with “humanitarian aid.”It’s not only the rank and file of the right-wing who call for intervention. Some leaders, like Antonio Ledezma, are also calling for it. “Get on with it president @jguaido, formally demand humanitarian intervention,” he tweeted before the mobilization.Maduro blames U.S. and right-wingNicolás Maduro spoke a little later in front of the Miraflores Palace. He spoke about the chronology of the five attacks, including physical attacks on generation stations, electromagnetic attacks on transmission networks and cyber attacks on the computerised control system.Maduro said that the 70 percent of the power that had been restored on Friday night was damaged again on Saturday at noon. He focused responsibility for the strategy of attacking the electrical system conceived by the United States, with the complicity of the right wing and what he called “infiltrators in the electrical company.”The demonstrations took place in a city with calm, attempts by families to connect, and concern about a possible new night in the dark with all its consequences. They caused no provocations in the streets after two days of starting #MegaApagon (MegaPoweroutage) — as it appears in twitter — and it is not too far out to suppose that one of the goals sought through the attack is just to get the population to go out into the streets to protest. Some parts of the country have not had service restored since Thursday, March 7.What’s involved is a push to re-establish and stabilize the electrical system — which had previously presented difficulties in different parts of Venezuela — to reduce the chain of damage caused by the prolonged national outage. It can be anticipated that sabotage will continue and expand, as Guaidó predicted during Saturday’s event: “We must announce responsibly that this will lead to a gasoline crisis.”The end of the afternoon brought uncertainty about the present and for the days to come. The right wing gave no dates for a demonstration, and it seems clear that the strategy of prolonged wear-and-tear on the people is the card that they intend to play to cause all it can. It generates burnout, uncertainty and chaos, while it does not expose the opposition — which denies any responsibility for its actions. One of the axes of the dispute is thus centered around how events are interpreted.The days have grown tense in the balance between the return of light and the loss of power, the need to adapt in the face of an unprecedented landscape of siege that forces the nation to resist.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

(AP Photo/Tony Gutierrez) printTCU head coach Gary Patterson had one word during Tuesday’s press conference to describe the Horned Frogs’ November schedule: unbelievable.That stretch of the season begins this weekend.The No. 8 Horned Frogs (8-0, 5-0 Big 12 Conference) head to Stillwater, Oklahoma, on Saturday to take on the No. 14 Oklahoma State Cowboys (8-0, 5-0) in a Big 12 match-up of two undefeated top 15 teams. It will be the third time since entering the Big 12 that the Frogs have traveled to Stillwater, a place where they have not won since 1991.“They’re a very good team, even better up in Stillwater,” Patterson said. “Coach Gundy and his staff have done an unbelievable job. They’ve played a little like us; they had to win some games on the road, including a close one against Texas and then a close one at home against Kansas State.”Now in their 11th season under the leadership of head coach Mike Gundy, the Cowboys have been one of the biggest surprises in the nation this season, and the Frogs will have their hands full as they journey north to the Oklahoma Plains.OffenseAs has been the case all year, the Frogs’ offense must once again excel as it faces the most complete team they have played against this season in Oklahoma State.Coming off an explosive 616 total yards of offense against West Virginia in Fort Worth last Thursday, the Frogs have all the momentum they need.Quarterback Trevone Boykin, who was named a Davey O’Brien award semifinalist on Monday, will look to inch closer to Andy Dalton’s TCU record of 10,314 career passing yards. Boykin passed the 10,000 yard mark in the win against West Virginia.Wide receiver Josh Doctson will look to build upon his team-leading total of 14 touchdown receptions on the season. Doctson enters the contest as only the second player in the last two decades to record six straight games with at least 100 receiving yards and multiple touchdown receptions, joining former Texas Tech receiver Michael Crabtree.Doctson and Boykin were both named Maxwell Award Finalists earlier in the week, which recognizes the collegiate football player of the year. Doctson said after the victory over West Virginia the chemistry between both the two and the entire offense is at an all-time high.Patterson said Tuesday that the two have the hearts of players who will do whatever it takes to prove they are elite.“Trevone wants to show everyone he is the best,” Patterson said. “That’s why he is the way he is. He’d play even if the game was in the parking lot. The same can be said for Josh and quite a few others.”Oklahoma State’s offense is no joke either, though. The Cowboys put up 70 points in Saturday’s victory over Texas Tech in Lubbock.The Frogs will be up against a unit led by a duo of quarterbacks, sophomore starter Mason Rudolph and senior reserve J.W. Walsh. Rudolph is playing his first full season as starter after starting as a freshman for the final few games of the 2014 season.Rudolph has a 10-1 career record as starter and has totaled 2,482 passing yards this season with an average of 310 yards per game.Walsh, primarily a running quarterback, boasts one of the strangest stats of anyone in college football this season, as he has only been on the field for 58 snaps but has been responsible for 96 of the Cowboys’ points this season.The Cowboys’ offense is also highlighted by junior running back Chris Carson and senior wide receiver Brandon Sheperd.Carson, who transferred from Butler Community College in El Dorado, Kansas, during the off season, leads the team with 95 carries from 365 yards this season.Sheperd is riding a 23-game reception streak and is coming off a 2014 season which saw him lead the team with 737 receiving yards. Sheperd also averaged 18.9 yards per catch last season, which is good for third best in the conference.DefenseThe Frogs’ defense seems to have finally found its groove going into Saturday’s contest, holding opponents to 10 points over its last six quarters played and recording second half shutouts two weeks in a row. All 10 points came in the second quarter of the game against West Virginia.The Frogs are also the only team in the Big 12 this season that has shut out its opponent for at least three quarters in three conference games.While the Frogs have had their slips on defense, allowing 52 points to Texas Tech and 45 to Kansas State, the unit has allowed only a 50.7 completion percentage and seven touchdown receptions this season. That trend of preventing points scored off the aerial attack will have to continue against Oklahoma State’s formidable offense.The presence of seniors such as defensive tackle Davion Pierson, defensive end Mike Tuaua and safety Derrick Kindred has helped provide the Frogs with leadership they lacked earlier on when the defense was slammed with injuries and departures.“The leadership just keeps growing with guys coming back, and the same guys starting and playing together each week has helped a lot,” Patterson said. “Against Texas Tech I think Derrick was the only starter we had from the Peach Bowl last season.”Senior leadership on both sides of the ball will be pivotal on Saturday, when the Frogs take on what Patterson calls “the best defensive front” they have faced up to this point in the season.The Cowboys’ defense has held five of its last seven opponents to less than 200 passing yards, and the unit has also scored four touchdowns over the last three games. A large reason for that is the squad’s success at getting to the quarterback.Oklahoma State’s defense is ranked second in the nation in sacks, averaging 3.75 per game. The Cowboys also rank fifth in tackles for loss, averaging nine per game.The charge is led by defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah, who has been named defensive player of the game three times this season and Big 12 Defensive Player of Week twice. Ogbah and his counterpart, defensive end Jimmy Bean, combine for the fourth best sack duo in the country.Final Thoughts and PredictionsThis game should be a wild one. It is the only matchup in the nation this weekend between two undefeated Power-5 conference teams, and the stakes are high.For one team, the dream of a trip to the College Football Playoff will all but come to an end in Stillwater on Saturday. The message that you have to go undefeated in the Big 12 to have a shot is now loud and clear after the two undefeated squads came in ranked lower than multiple one-loss Power-5 teams in the first CFP rankings of the season on Tuesday.The Frogs have the offensive edge, but the Cowboys’ defense is just as competitive and maybe more experienced than the Frogs’ defensive unit. It is huge that the Frogs have the confidence from holding their opponents to just 10 points over the last 90 minutes played, but nothing will come easy to them against Oklahoma State and their unique quarterback situation. After all, the Cowboys put up 70 points against Texas Tech compared to TCU’s 55 on Sept. 26.The offense will in all likelihood have to win this game for the Frogs. That won’t be as easy, though, given the talent Oklahoma State’s defensive line has. The Frogs rely on the air-raid style offense, but that all starts with protecting Boykin. If the Frogs aren’t able to contain the defensive line, they will need a lot more of those types of runs from Boykin that earned him a high five from Dana Holgorsen last week.Prediction: TCU 38, Okla.

Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago June 8, 2020 2,980 Views Print This Post Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago The cost of homeowners insurance has increased by 59% in the past decade, but COVID-19 may mitigate future increases, according to analysis from ValuePenguin.com, by LendingTree.”The large number of Americans staying home right now has significantly lowered the risk of unattended fires or leaks as well as burglary,” said Chris Moon, Insurance Product Manager at ValuePenguin.com. “While homeowners may file more claims in the short term as they notice things that they might not have had time for previously, once that “backlog” is dealt with, the long-term effect of staying at home is less risk of damage.”ValuePenguin predicts homeowners insurance price increases in 44 states, and the greatest increases in home insurance costs will be in California, Nebraska, Illinois, South Dakota and Utah. Home insurance rate increases have outpaced the cumulative rate of inflation (9.14%) according to data going back five years in 31 states.In states where insurers post very high loss ratios, rates tend to increase significantly in the following years. For instance, California’s devastating Camp Fire in 2018 led to $16.5 billion in wildfire damages. As a result, the state’s insurance industry experienced a loss ratio well over 100%, and their rate filings for 2020 reflected the most aggressive increases in the country.Homeowners who live in a 100-year floodplain have a 26% chance of their property being flooded at some point during the course of 30 years, the length of a typical mortgage, according to ValuePenguin. However, only a minority of properties located in a designated 100-year floodplain are insured against flooding.In seven cities, less than 2% of homes in high-risk areas have flood insurance. Among those is Boise Idaho, where only one property reportedly has flood insurance while well over 8,000 homes are located in high-risk zones.In Riverside, California; Detroit; and St. Louis just 0.9% of properties in 100-year floodplains have flood insurance.The remaining cities with flood coverage ratios lower than 2% are Cleveland, Ohio (1.1%); Minneapolis (1.5%); and Youngstown, Ohio (1.8%).Rising construction costs drive homeowners insurance premiums up, ValuePenguin notes. Homeowners insurance covers the cost of rebuilding or repairing residential structures, which is why insurer rates are influenced by increases in the local price of materials and labor. Where states have experienced severe disasters and a spike in construction demand, shortages have led to insurers raising their rates.

A bench comprising Chief Justice S Manikumar and Justice Shaji P Chaly directed that, “If and when any member of the transgender community approaches the District Authority or Nodal Officer appointed for the purpose of issuing gender identity card and the ration card, necessary steps shall be taken at the earliest to address the issues, and on being satisfied, to take immediate steps to issue identity card and ration card to such persons.” Also the court directed the state to address properly any issues raised by the transgenders in writing. With regard to the five transgender persons mentioned in the statement filed by the petitioner the court held that : “If five persons mentioned in the statement filed by the petitioner are approaching the concerned District Authority constituted by the Government for the purpose of addressing the issues of the transgenders, the same shall be looked into and provide necessary articles and medicines to such persons and their grievances shall be alleviated. “The directions were passed in a writ petition filed by Aneera Kabir. CONTENTIONS RAISED BY THE PETITIONER : The petitioner contented for the benefits of the law laid in the Apex Court decision in National Legal Service Authority v. Union of India and Other s [(2014) 5 SCC 438], and presented before the court that the transgender community in Kerala especially in the lock down situation are facing severe crisis in terms of access to essential food supply, medicines and allied treatments. Equally they are facing threat of torture from the part of police authorities. THE KERALA STATE’S CONTENTION The State of Kerala through its affidavit had contended that state of Kerala never followed a different treatment towards its people especially in the time of these grave crisis. They have made earnest efforts to protect the rights and interest of the Transgender community. The State of Kerala submitted that, the Kerala state is flamboyant for its transgender policy and and its the first state in the country to implement such a policy for the holistic empowerment of the transgender community. The state had further stated some of the welfare measure they administered for the benefit of the transgender community, as follows : Authorities like transgender justice Board in the state level and a Transgender Justice committee at the District levelVarious Schemes for the overall upliftment and protections of persons belonging to transgender community interms of self employment, marriage assistance, financial aid for self employment and sex rearrangement surgery etc.A helpline facility and scholarship for the persons belonging to transgender community. EtcTreatment facilities including hormone therapy.Short stay homes for the people belonging to the Transgender community under the aegis of the Social Justice Department in four districts (Thiruvananthapuram, Kottayam, Ernakulam and Kozhikode), etc NO SPECIFIC INSTANCES POINTED OUT The Court had observed that, no specific instances regarding the violation of the rights of the transgender community were pointed out in the Writ Petition and court had acknowledged the names of five transgender persons filed through a statement in the subsequent stage. The state government had contended through the counter affidavit that the committees constituted for the benefit of the transgender communities in the District and the State levels are functioning effectively and whenever any complaint or representation from any transgender persons are received on account of the inconvenience faced by them due to the non- supply of food or medicines, police atrocities, students grievances etc. the same will be addressed immediately. The Court observed that : “We are of the view that when the State Government has taken enough and more steps to provide various facilities and the authorities are appointed for addressing their issues, it is for members of that community or the NGOs or the members representing the transgender community to approach the said authorities and put forth the rights, they are entitled to. Even though it is contended that the members of the transgender community are being harassed by the police, we are unable to act upon such a contention, since no specific instances are pointed out by the petitioner enabling us to direct the respondents to take appropriate action against the police officials.” And the Court further observed that , “it is trite and well settled that even a person approaching a constitutional court with a public interest litigation should provide necessary materials, and facts and figures enabling the constitutional court to rely upon the same and issue appropriate directions to the State and its authorities.” PRIVACY ISSUES AND ALLIED ISSUES The Court had observed that the identification of the transgender community is an issue involving privacy and it is the duty of the concerned authority to provide the documents once the person in need approaches, for the issuance of the same. The Court held that : We are also of the view that the issue with respect to the gender identity of the transgender has been considered by the Apex Court in the judgment in National Legal Services Authority (supra), after taking in depth study with respect to the problems and issues faced by the transgenders all over the world. The Apex Court has also held therein that gender identification becomes a very essential component which is required for enjoying the civil rights of the members of the community. It is only with the recognition that many rights attached to the sexual recognition as ‘third gender’ would be available to this community more meaningfully ie., the right to own property, right to marry, right to claim a formal identity through a passport and a ration card, a driver’s licence, the right to education, employment, health and so on. We are also of the view that there are no reasons for denying any basic human right to a member of the transgender community. But, unless and until such efforts are made by the members of the community to secure their rights through appropriate statutory authority constituted by the State Government due to the peculiar nature of the issue, statutory authorities may find it difficult, especially due to the right to privacy, and right to choice, enjoyed by such persons, which are referable to the right of life and liberty enjoyed by the citizens under Article 21 of the Constitution of India. The court had equally identified the role of the members of the community, or NGO’s and others who are working with the transgender community to identify the issues facd by the transgender community and to direct the same to the authorities concerned.The petitioner was represented by Advocate Thulasi K.Raj and the State ware represented by the Addl.Advocate General Ranjith Thampan and Senior Government Pleader Advocate Surin George IPEClick here to download OrderRead Order Next Story

All rights reserved. Police are searching for Leila Cavett, who may be the mother of the child in the photograph, that was found alone in a parking lot in Miramar, Florida. – (Miramar Police Department via Twitter)By CHRISTINA CARREGA, ABC News(MIRAMAR, Fla.) — Two days after a young boy was spotted wandering around a Florida parking lot, the Miramar Police Department still hasn’t found his mother.The boy, approximately 2 or 3 years old, was identified after a photo of him was circulated on social media.The boy’s aunt, Gina Lewis, told ABC affiliate WPLG that her sister, Leila Cavett, nor her family have any connections to South Florida.The boy, police said, currently is “being cared for by a foster parent and has been provided with the necessary items” until his relatives can make the 12-hour drive from their hometown of Jasper, Alabama.“Were in the middle of a pandemic,” Lewis told the station. “So it’s not like they were taking a vacation out of the blue with the baby. There’s no way.”Cavett, 21, was last seen driving a white Chevy 3500 with a maroon or red tailgate and a “Baby on Board” sign on the passenger window, police said.“We are concerned for her safety and well-being,” the Miramar Police Department said in Facebook and Twitter posts that included photos of the boy and of Cavett.
Egg production in three species of calanoid copepods Rhincalanus gigas, Calanoides acutus and Calanus simillimus was investigated via incubations of females and recovery of eggs from net hauls made around South Georgia during January 1993. Average daily egg production was highest for the sub-Antarctic C. simillimus, (15.5 eggs female−1 d−1). This species normally spawns in the spring in the central part of its geographical range but was apparently delayed by the colder waters found around South Georgia. For R. gigas and C. acutus egg production averaged 8.9 and 6.0 eggs female−1 d−1, respectively. The former species appeared to be undergoing protracted recruitment while the population of the latter was preparing to overwinter. Considerable interstation variability existed, although no relationships were apparent between surface chlorophyll concentrations and either egg production in experiments or in the numbers of eggs recovered by the nets. Clutch size (eggs produced spawning female−1 d−1) did not differ significantly between the three species although the maximum clutch size recorded for R. gigas (94 eggs) was almost twice that of C. simillimus. Samples taken from the Bellingshausen Sea during the latter part of 1992 indicated that recruitment of R. gigas and C. acutus commenced in early December in this region when adult females were concentrated in the surface 250 m and a diatom bloom was developing. Egg numbers were highest in the surface 50 m (up to 350 m−-3) at both the Bellingshausen and South Georgia stations. At the latter site females migrated into these surface layers at night; thus it would appear that spawning is largely nocturnal and linked to diurnal migratory behaviour.
Inland Antarctic terrestrial ecosystems and biodiversity are poorly understood in comparison with Antarctic coastal regions. Microorganisms, as primary colonists, are integral to Antarctic soil ecosystem development, essential for pedogenesis and structuring the soil, and providing the nutrients necessary for the subsequent establishment of macroorganisms. This study analysed the microbial communities present in polygon soils of Coal Nunatak (Alexander Island, at the southern limit of the maritime Antarctic). Soils were analysed across three polygons (centre and margins) and at three depths (0-1, 1-2, 2-5 cm). Cyanobacterial communities were characterised using two complementary molecular biological approaches, temperature gradient gel electrophoresis and clone library analysis. The three polygons exhibited conspicuous differences in community composition, both between different polygons and spatially (horizontally and vertically) within a single polygon. Comparison of our data with that from previous studies using classical culture and morphological identification techniques clearly shows the need for more intensive research on patterns of microbial diversity in terrestrial habitats throughout the Antarctic. The majority of the 17 cyanobacterial genera identified at Coal Nunatak are thought to have ubiquitous distributions, while none are known only from the Antarctic. Three of the genera present are also known to be capable of being lichen photobionts.
