first_imgLOS ANGELES, Calif. – Porn actress Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti must pay $4.85 million to an attorney who worked at his former law firm, a California judge ruled Monday in an order that holds the potential presidential candidate personally liable in a lawsuit over back pay.The Los Angeles judge ordered the payout the same day a separate ruling came down evicting Eagan Avenatti LLC from its office space in Southern California after four months of unpaid rent.In the case over back pay, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Dennis Landin ruled that Avenatti personally guaranteed a settlement with attorney Jason Frank, who said Eagan Avenatti misstated its profits and that he was owed millions of dollars.Avenatti, who is best known for representing Daniels in her lawsuit against President Donald Trump following an alleged 2006 affair, did not appear at Monday’s hearing and never filed arguments in the case.He told The Associated Press that Frank owes him and the firm $12 million “for his fraud.” He did not provide details and declined to comment further. It’s unclear whether Avenatti has filed any litigation in the matter against Frank, whose attorney said Frank doesn’t owe Avenatti a dime and that saying so is defamatory.Avenatti, who is toying with a possible 2020 presidential run, can appeal the ruling but since he never filed arguments about why he shouldn’t have to pay the $4.85 million, any such effort would be “dead in the water,” said Frank’s attorney, Eric George.“He’s managed to delay this for ages,” George said. “At the end of the day, this is money that’s owed. No matter how you try to spin it, it comes back to the fact that he took money, it wasn’t his and now there’s a judgment saying it’s owed to my client.”Frank had worked at Avenatti’s former firm under an independent contractor agreement and was supposed to collect 25 per cent of its annual profits, along with 20 per cent of fees his clients paid, court documents say.“It’ll be important to keep an eye on him and sources of money that are coming in, see what his assets are, and take it from there,” George said.Meanwhile, Orange County Superior Court Judge Robert Moss issued an order Monday terminating Eagan Avenatti’s lease from office space in Newport Beach and ordering the law firm to pay $154,000 for four months of back rent. No one appeared in court on behalf of the firm.Monday’s developments came five months after a U.S. bankruptcy court judge ordered the firm to pay Frank $10 million. The $4.85 million for which Avenatti is now personally liable is in addition to that judgment.In July, the Justice Department accused Avenatti of making misrepresentations in the bankruptcy case and said his former law firm owed more than $440,000 in unpaid federal taxes.Avenatti’s lawyer said at the time that the matter had been resolved. The Justice Department insisted that settlement negotiations were continuing but the debt was still owed.The ruling against Avenatti comes a week after a federal judge dismissed Daniels’ defamation lawsuit against Trump, saying the president made a “hyperbolic statement” against a political adversary when he tweeted about a composite sketch that Avenatti has released.Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, sued Trump in April after he said a composite sketch of a man she said threatened her in 2011 to keep quiet about an alleged affair was a “con job.” Avenatti has appealed the ruling.The defamation claim is separate from another lawsuit that Daniels filed against Trump, which is ongoing. Daniels was paid $130,000 as part of a nondisclosure agreement signed days before the 2016 election and is suing to dissolve that contract.___Balsamo reported from Washington.

first_imgOntario’s Progressive Conservative government says it has cut the province’s deficit by $500 million, bringing the figure down to $14.5 billion in its first few months in office.The change is announced in the government’s Fall Economic Statement for 2018-2019, its first major fiscal update since winning the spring election.“The fiscal hole is deep,” Finance Minister Vic Fedeli said in presenting the document to the legislature on Thursday afternoon. “The road ahead is not an easy one and will require difficult decisions. Everyone across the province will be required to make sacrifices, without exception.”The government said it has made progress on cutting the deficit by finding $3.2 billion in efficiencies in operations, including a hiring freeze across the public service.The belt-tightening measures laid out also include rolling the positions of three independent officers — the environmental commissioner, the child and youth advocate and the French language services commissioner — into the offices of the auditor general or the provincial ombudsman.Government staff could not say what will happen to those working in the eliminated offices, but Premier Doug Ford has consistently promised that no jobs would be lost as a result of his cost-cutting.Plans for a French-language university have also been cancelled, though the government could not immediately say how much money the move would save.Though it is spending less, the government said it is also taking in $2.7 billion less in revenue in the fiscal year — including $1.5 billion attributed to the cancellation of cap and trade.More than $300,000 in lost revenue is attributed to cancelling planned tax increases, including one that would have raised taxes for small businesses, the document says.The Tories had said the previous Liberal government left a $15 billion deficit, a figure disputed by critics, who said it includes spending promised by the Liberals but cancelled by the current regime.While the document mentions returning the province’s budget to balance, it does not spell out how long it will take to achieve that goal. “Our path forward is clear, and that is why it is important to maintain our resolve to pursue fiscal discipline and ultimately restore our books to balance,” Fedeli said.The fiscal update also promises to eliminate income tax for those earning less than $30,000 a year. The government says the tax cut offsets its decision to scrap a planned increase of the province’s minimum wage that was set to take effect next year.Critics, however, have said raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour as the Liberals had planned would give low-income workers more money than the income tax cut would save. An independent financial analysis came to a similar conclusion.The tax cut is expected to cost the province $495 million in lost revenue, the document says.The update also pledges to expand hours of operation at Beer Store and LCBO outlets across the province, allowing them to open seven days a week until 11 p.m.Shawn Jeffords and Paola Loriggio, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

first_imgMumbai: State-run lender Bank of Maharashtra on Monday reported a standalone net profit of Rs 72.38 crore during the quarter ended March 31 on a year-on-year basis. The lender had reported a standalone net loss of Rs 113.49 crore in the same period last year. Besides, net interest income for the lender during Q4 FY19 rose by 13.47 per cent to Rs 1,000 crore as against Rs 881 crore for Q4 FY18. However, for the fiscal, the bank reported a net loss of Rs 4,784 crore against a net loss of Rs 1,146 crore reported for the corresponding previous financial year.

CALGARY — The United Conservatives are promising to get Alberta’s books out of the red and into a $714-million surplus by 2023, a year earlier than the NDP.UCP Leader Jason Kenney unveiled the numbers today as part of the formal release of the party’s election platform.The UCP is focusing on the economy and job creation, but says it will take time to dig out from under the multibillion-dollar deficits run up over the last four years by Premier Rachel Notley’s NDP.The UCP expects revenues from oil and gas royalties will be lower than projected by the NDP.But they say by keeping spending hikes to about 0.3 per cent per year, coupled with job-creation incentives such as slashing the corporate tax, they can get to balance before the end of their first term in government.Kenney also released more details on his previously announced commitment to end the carbon tax and replace it with a program targeting large emitters of greenhouse gases.Under the plan, facilities with emissions higher than 100,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide will have to reduce the intensity of those emissions or buy credits or offsets, or pay into a fund that will study ways to reduce GHG emissions.The Canadian Press read more

But prisons spokesman Thushara Upuldeniya said authorities were still trying to fill a vacancy for an executioner.Light work and a salary of 35,000 rupees (US$200) a month was offered in advertisements placed last year, but no suitable candidate came forward, he said.“Technically, we don’t have a hangman right now, but if the need arises, we should be able to get one fairly quickly,” Upuldeniya told AFP. Athukorale said there were 18 drug convicts who would qualify under Sirisena’s guidelines to be hanged out of 376 convicts on death row. The country’s justice minister told parliament Tuesday that legal and administrative procedures for the five condemned Sri Lankans were completed last month, paving the way for the first hangings since 1976. Five names had been sent to the president between Oct 12 and the end of January, but Sirisena was yet to sign the warrants and fix the execution dates, Athukorale added. There was no immediate comment from Sirisena’s office on the cases.Following a visit to the Philippines last month, Sirisena reaffirmed his plans to replicate his counterpart Rodrigo Duterte’s “success” in dealing with illegal drugs. Sri Lanka is ready to execute five drug convicts and end its 42-year capital punishment moratorium once President Maithripala Sirisena signs the death warrants and a hangman is appointed, officials said Tuesday (Feb 5).Sirisena announced last year a tougher line on spiralling narcotics-related crime including executions for repeat drug offenders, inspired by a similar crackdown in the Philippines. “We have already complied with the president’s request to restart capital punishment,” Thalatha Athukorale said. While Sri Lanka’s last execution was more than four decades ago, an executioner functioned until his retirement in 2014. Three replacements since have quit after short stints at the unused gallows.Criminals are regularly given death sentences for murder, rape and drug-related crimes but their punishments have been commuted to life.International rights groups have urged Sri Lanka not to revive capital punishment. (Courtesy AFP) Sirisena praised the “decisive action” of Duterte who has offered anti-narcotics help to Sri Lanka.Duterte ran on a law-and-order platform that included promises to kill thousands of people involved in the drug trade, even officials.“Even though I have not implemented some of the decisions of President Duterte, I will not bow to international non-governmental (rights) organisations and change my decision on death penalty for drug offences,” Sirisena said last month. read more

According to the agency, the industry’s cyclical downturn combined with the terrorist attacks had resulted in the loss of approximately 400,000 jobs worldwide. All segments of the air transportation industry – airlines, airports, air navigation services, equipment manufacturers, catering companies and car rental facilities – were affected. Approximately 200 delegates attending the meeting agreed on the need to find solutions to stabilize the industry, restore profits, and maintain investments in infrastructure improvement. A critical element to any recovery, they asserted, is the re-establishment of consumer confidence. Among other recommendations, participants called for strengthening the role played by certain categories of workers, such as cabin crew and ground staff, and ensuring that comprehensive occupational health and safety laws apply to all civil aviation employees, including flying personnel. Governments were called on to consider establishing minimum global standards for training in all safety- and security-sensitive aviation occupations. The ILO and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) should participate in that effort, delegates said. The meeting urged the ILO to further investigate the impact of the 11 September terrorist attacks on civil aviation in developing countries. The labour agency was also asked to work jointly with ICAO on an urgent study of the impact of industry restructuring measures on employment and safety practices. In addition, participants called for the promotion of a “human factors approach” in the security domain – one which maximizes the quality of people’s work in the areas of security and safety. read more

© UNICEF/UN0264161/HubbardOn 6 December 2018, at a UNICEF supported crèche in Beni, in the eastern DRC, Kavira Langa Jemima, an Ebola survivor, bathes 6 month old Josue, who’s mother is undergoing treatment for Ebola.Ebola outbreak in DRC’s east, now world’s second largest everIn eastern DRC, the outbreak of deadly Ebola virus disease which began six months ago, has now officially become the second largest ever, the UN reported on Wednesday.More than 740 people, 30 per cent of them children, have been infected so far, and 460 have died, with a total of 258 surviving the disease. UN Children’s Fund UNICEF, said that I was scaling up its response to help victims, as part of the Government and World Health Organization-led effort to end the outbreak – the largest in the country’s history.“The response to this latest outbreak continues to be hampered by insecurity, frequent movement of people in the affected areas, and resistance from some communities,” said UNICEF.”While we have been able to largely control the disease in Mangina, Beni and Komanda, the virus continues to spread in the Butembo area, largely because of insecurity and population movement,” added Dr. Gianfranco Rotigliano, UNICEF Representative in the DRC. “We are scaling up our response and deploying additional staff in the health zones of Butembo and Katwa, where 65 per cent of the new Ebola cases in the last three weeks have occurred.” In mid-January, UN human rights chief Michelle Bachelet, said that according to “credible reports”, hundreds of villagers from the four communities in Yumbi, had been killed during inter-ethnic clashes between the Banunu and Batende communities, during several days, beginning on 16 December. She deplored the “shocking violence” and highlighted the importance of “investigating and bringing the perpetrators to justice”.The initial investigation conducted by the Joint UN Human Rights Office (UNJHRO), attached to the mission, has concluded that in addition to the dead, 111 other villagers were wounded.There has been no confirmation of exactly who carried out the killings but the mission said that “the attacks were conducted in an organized and planned manner, and were extremely violent and fast, leaving little time for the populations to flee”.The wave of violence was allegedly triggered by a dispute over the burial of the customary chief of the Banunu community.“The team identified a total of 59 burial sites in two of the attacked towns, but do not rule out more sites,” said a statement from MONUSCO on Wednesday. “Furthermore, 967 properties, including churches, schools and health centers were looted or destroyed, and at least 363 boats were destroyed.”An estimated 16,000 people reportedly fled Yumbi and the surrounding area, to different locations including “some 7,000 persons who, according to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), sought refuge by crossing the river into the Republic of Congo. The Mission reports that the security situation is currently relatively calm, with national security forces having deployed to the area.”The UN and its humanitarian partners have dispatched emergency help in the form of medicine, food, water tablets and malaria kits, and further assistance is on the way.MONUSCO to support authorities, ‘bring justice to the victims’, promote reconciliationThe head of the UNJHRO has reported that each communal grave discovered so far – reportedly dug initially by local Red Cross workers and returning family members who had fled – likely contained dozens of bodies, while there were more than 40 other individual graves unearthed, following the joint fact-finding mission that was conducted along with local authorities.The outbreak of inter-ethnic violence in December took place just weeks ahead of crucial Presidential elections, which had been delayed for two years. Voters in Yumbi were unable to cast their votes, as the Electoral Commission building was among those totally destroyed.MONUSCO said it “strongly condemns” the violence and is calling for a thorough investigation. The mission said it was ready to support the Congolese authorities to “bring justice to the victims, and promote reconciliation between the two communities.” read more

Brock nursing students Victoria Torr (left), and Terri-Jo Sampson participated in a knowledge exchange with members of the Gerontological Nursing Association Ontario. Two first-year Brock nursing students participated in a knowledge exchange with members of the Gerontological Nursing Association Ontario (GNAO).Terri-Jo Sampson and Victoria Torr are both first-year nursing students selected as featured guest speakers at a recent meeting hosted by the Niagara chapter of the GNAO.The 40-minute presentation focused on topics of ageism, elderspeak and communication with older adults, and was followed up with a discussion period.The GNAO serves as a network for nurses who care for older adults across all health-care sectors in Ontario.Nursing Prof. Lynn McCleary selected the students to present the work they had completed for a first-year nursing course titled Professional and Therapeutic Communications, knowing that their topic was relevant to nurses who work with older adults.“The students exhibited professionalism, knowledge and stellar presentation skills along with extensive knowledge on this particular topic,” said Lynn McCleary, who is an associate professor in nursing at Brock and the president of the Canadian Gerontological Nursing Association (CGNA).Learning outside the confines of the classroom, both students were excited about the opportunity to apply their knowledge in a professional setting and spread awareness about communication issues that many older adults experience.“Many caregivers do not even know they are doing it, but they use ageism and elderspeak, which is essentially secondary baby talk when communicating with older adults,” says Torr. “While altering communication may be well intentioned, it can result in many other implications that can negatively affect the quality of life among older adults.”According to both students, being exposed to clinical in their first year has helped them recognize gerontology as a potential field of specialization.“While working with older adults, you have an opportunity to talk with them and listen to the life experiences that they are usually excited to share with you,” says Sampson, who grew up in the Niagara region and found her passion for nursing participating in a co-op placement at a local hospital. “We want to help spread awareness, and this presentation was a great way to demonstrate to everyone – including ourselves – that getting out of your comfort zone can lead to great opportunities.”The presentation took place at the Linhaven long-term care home in St. Catharines Jan. 21, 2014, and was open to GNAO members, students and family. read more

first_imgProfessor Helen Stokes-Lampard, Chairman of the Royal College of GPs, said: “Today’s figures are extremely disappointing but they must not be used as an excuse for criticising GPs who are working their hardest to reduce antibiotic prescribing, whilst grappling with countless other workload pressures and a shortage of GPs. “If GPs do prescribe antibiotics, it is because, in their expert opinion, they are the most appropriate treatment available, given the unique circumstances of the patients before us.“However we are still coming under considerable pressure from some patients who need to understand that antibiotics are not a ‘catch all’ for every illness,” she said.In recent years, the UK has led a drive to raise global awareness of the threat posed to modern medicine by antimicrobial resistance.Around 700,000 people around the world die annually due to drug-resistant infections including tuberculosis (TB), HIV and malaria.If no action is taken, it has been estimated that drug-resistant infections will kill 10 million people a year by 2050.In a linked commentary, chief medical officer Dame Sally Davies said: “Antibiotics are unique among drugs since the more they are used, the less effective they become because bacterial resistance is likely to develop.”She has previously warned that antibiotic resistance poses a “catastrophic threat” on a par with terrorism and climate change.Protect yourself and your family by learning more about Global Health Security  Superbugs will kill more people than cancer without swift action to stop GPs doling out needless antibiotics, Jeremy Hunt has warned.It came as new research found at least one in five prescriptions by family doctors should never have been issued, fuelling antibiotic resistance.Health officials urged GPs to rein in prescribing of the drugs, amid warnings that routine hospital operations could become too dangerous if common medications become ineffective.Leading family doctors said the findings were “extremely disappointing,” but said GPs should not be blamed for handing out so many needless drugs.The study by Public Health England (PHE) and Imperial College London found British doctors were twice as likely as those in the Netherlands to prescribe the drugs.Overuse of antibiotics fuels the rise of drug-resistant superbugs, which kill 5,000 a year in the UK. The medication only works against bacterial infections, when the vast majority of coughs, colds and sore throats are caused by viruses.The study which tracked GP practices across England found at least one in five prescriptions for antibiotics were inappropriate.Almost six in ten patients with a sore throat were prescribed antibiotics – when around 13 per cent had a bacterial case, requiring it, the research found. The drugs were prescribed for more than 40 per cent of coughs, when just 10 per cent were appropriate. And almost nine in 10 patients with a sinus infection received the drugs – when only around one in ten should have. More than 38 million courses are handed out by GPs each year – suggesting around 7.5 million were needless. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Mr Hunt called for urgent action to cut prescribing levels.He said: “Drug-resistant infections are one of the biggest threats to modern medicine and inappropriate prescribing of antibiotics is only exacerbating this problem.“We risk a world where superbugs kill more people a year than cancer and routine operations become too dangerous.”Around 160,000 people die of cancer in the UK annually.The findings were published in the Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy.Professor Paul Cosford, PHE medical director said: “Using antibiotics when you don’t need them threatens their long term effectiveness and we all have a part to play to ensure they continue to help us, our families and communities in the future.  This publication highlights the role GPs can play and I urge all practices to look at ways they can reduce their inappropriate prescribing levels to help make sure the antibiotics that save lives today can save lives tomorrow.”last_img read more

first_imgMINISTER FOR FINANCE Michael Noonan has said he no longer believes Ireland will require €2 billion in cuts and tax increases in Budget 2015.This is despite the International Monetary Fund and the Irish Fiscal Advisory Council both advising the government to stick to the planned cuts.Speaking to reporters this morning in Luxembourg, Noonan said the Commission and the IMF are looking at outdated information, as previous calculations suggested that it would take a €2 billion adjustment to ensure the deficit falls below 3%.“Now there’s data coming through,” the minister explained, “some of it soft data, some it anecdotal, which seems to me, we will not require that level of adjustment, but I am not in a position to say how much leeway we’ll have.”We will get the deficit below 3% by 2015, and no matter what it takes, we’ll do it.He also noted that while “we were in the programme they had this concept which they sometimes have in Europe about measuring the level of effort you put into things”.“The volume of the adjustment was important,” the minister said.Now that we are out of the programme it’s simply like other countries.He also dismissed the EU Commission’s investigation into Apple’s tax arrangements in Ireland as “old news” since it was discussed in Congress.“The Commission have not come at it from a tax perspective, they have come at it from a state aid perspective which is a different space, and obviously if they think it’s state aid it has to be investigated,” he said.“We think it isn’t, we think we will win the case ultimately.”Read: The IMF is back in town, and it’s not mad on the Government’s mortgage strategy >More: Spending watchdog tells Government to stick to €2 billion austerity target >last_img read more

first_imgThe Clark County agency responsible for dispatching emergency responders and keeping the public in the loop about disruptive goings-on in the community will be testing out its new alert system Thursday.For the new system, Clark Regional Emergency Services Agency has so far partnered with the county and seven cities within its boundaries. It has been in the works for more than a year, said Eric Frank, the agency’s emergency management coordinator.The test will send alerts to about 1,000 La Center residents and 9,000 others throughout the county who previously registered with the agency’s former partner, according to CRESA. La Center is serving as the main testing area, Frank said in an email.For those who subscribe to the service, CRESA keeps them informed about things like encroaching wildfires, lost or endangered people, hazardous waste spills and, of course, law enforcement activity.So what’s new with the latest version of the alert system?CRESA says county communities will have tools to share urgent alerts, as well as non-emergency notifications. The latter alerts may include information about utility services, road closures and community news.last_img read more

first_imgSeattle beating New England on the road on Sunday night was one of the best games of the year. Colin says it was a Super Bowl preview with the two best teams in the NFL. He was most impressed with Seattle’s consistency to be able to go on the road to New England on a short week and play at such a high level. Colin thinks their aggressive, attacking defense, and offense led by Russell Wilson, travels well, and they can beat anyone, anywhere.“Last night, you were watching the Super Bowl. Those are the two best teams.”The Steelers lost 35-30 at home to the Cowboys yesterday, and after the game Ben Roethlisberger called out the Steelers coaching staff. Colin thinks there’s a big problem in Pittsburgh when the franchise quarterback is calling out the head coach. The Steelers are inconsistent and undisciplined, and Mike Tomlin deserves a huge portion of the blame. The only thing Mike Tomlin has going for him at this point, is the force field surrounding him because he’s won two Super Bowls. The Steelers are a mess.“That is not just criticism of Mike Tomlin, that is telling everybody in football, your owner, your general manager, people that have power, ‘I’m not happy with who is coaching us.’ That is one of the big moments of the year.”USC just smoked Washington this weekend and there are finally some good vibes for the Trojans. After a period of chaos following the departure of Pete Carroll, the Trojans have a budding superstar in quarterback Sam Darnold and look better than they have in years. Colin still doesn’t think head coach Clay Helton is an elite coach, but there is finally some stability and the Trojans look like they can play with anyone in the country.“USC fans, since Pete Carroll left, have been living in a chaos tunnel. Now it ends. Now they know, this coaching staff can win big games. Not only against good teams, but on the road, and against really good coaches.”Tennessee beat up Green Bay yesterday, and from Colin’s perspective, the star quarterback in the matchup wasn’t Aaron Rodgers, it was Titan’s quarterback Marcus Mariota. Colin loves his accuracy and mobility, and he has all the leadership qualities that Rodgers lacks. Mariota is breaking out and people need to start taking notice.“Everybody loves Aaron Rodgers. You know what I like? I like Marcus Mariota. Marcus Mariota doesn’t complain. Not condescending. Super, super accurate.”Guests:Eric Dickerson – NFL Hall of Fame running back is in-studio to talk about Ezekiel Elliot, why the Cowboys offensive line deserves a large part of the credit, why Dak Prescott reminds him of Warren Moon, the importance of veteran leadership in an NFL locker room, and whether he thinks the Cowboys are risking wearing out Elliott with too many carries.Mike Peirera – Former VP of Officiating for the NFL, and Fox NFL Rules Analyst is in-studio to break down the controversial play at the end of the Seahawks/Patriots game, whether it was pass interference, why Gronk is difficult to officiate, why it’s harder to swallow the whistle than it is to throw a flag, and why experience in officiating matters in late game situations.Michael Lombardi – Former NFL Executive is in-studio to talk Seattle/New England, why the Seahawks are the most mentally tough team in the NFL, why the Patriots defense is a liability, what makes Russell Wilson great, and what’s wrong with Carolina and Cam Newton.Ian Rapoport – NFL Network Insider joins the show to break down the NFL Week 10 buzz, including how the Cowboys arrived at the decision to name Dak Prescott as the starter over Tony Romo, when Jared Goff might start for the Rams, whether Mike McCarthy is on the hot seat in Green Bay, and the current position of NFL owners on marijuana.Donald Penn – Oakland Raiders Pro Bowl left tackle is in-studio to talk about the Raiders surprising 7-2 start, what makes Derek Carr a great leader, why Jack Del Rio is the right coach for the young team, why he thinks they haven’t played close to their potential yet, and what it feels like to pancake a defender into the turf.last_img read more
