U.S. stocks close broadly higher

first_imgInvestors remained in a buying mood on Election Day, sending U.S. stocks broadly higher and building on big gains from a day earlier.Safe-play stocks such as utilities and phone companies were among the biggest gainers Tuesday. Energy companies were essentially flat.Investors focused on the U.S. presidential election, which rattled financial markets in recent weeks as polls between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump tightened.Wall Street has largely seen Clinton as more likely to maintain the status quo, while viewing Trump’s polices as less clear. Tuesday’s rally, coupled with Monday’s market gains, which marked the end of a nine-day losing streak and the best day for stocks since March, suggest the market anticipated a Clinton win.“The market has been looking for the status quo result, and the polling in the last couple of days shows that result is a good likelihood,” said Mike Baele, senior portfolio manager at the Private Client Reserve at U.S. Bank. “That’s the reason why the market is bouncing here.”The Dow Jones industrial average rose 73.14 points, or 0.4 percent, to 18,332.74. The average was briefly up as much as 140 points. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index gained 8.04 points, or 0.4 percent, to 2,139.56. The Nasdaq composite index added 27.32 points, or 0.5 percent, to 5,193.49.last_img read more

Threat closes Washington college after protests over race

first_imgOLYMPIA — A small college in Washington state closed abruptly Thursday in response to a threat following a recent series of protests that have drawn national attention to student allegations of racism on the progressive campus.It comes as many defenders of the First Amendment say they see signs that free speech is losing ground as a priority at U.S. colleges and is being used as a political weapon to silence opposing viewpoints.Law enforcement thought the threat via a 911 call was credible enough to forward to Evergreen State College in Olympia, and school officials decided to close the campus, Sandra Kaiser, Evergreen’s vice president for college relations, told reporters Thursday.Kaiser did not know the source of the threat or whether it was tied to recent protests at the college, which asked everyone to leave or return to residence halls for further instructions.Officers were “visible and present” on campus Thursday, and school officials were waiting to hear from law enforcement when they “can give the all clear,” Kaiser said. She hoped classes would resume Friday.last_img read more

Health care workers’ safety increasingly at risk

first_imgShannon Sathre was supposed to have the day off, but a staff shortage and the prospect of time-and-a-half pay lured her from her couch into the intensive care unit at PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center.Hours into that Dec. 20 overtime shift, one of Sathre’s patients lashed out, kicking the 49-year-old registered nurse multiple times in the chest, according to a Vancouver Police Department report. As other staff rushed into Room 5108 to help, the patient allegedly began swinging her arms and spitting at anyone who tried to restrain her.After the adrenaline wore off, Sathre realized how much pain she was in. Her chest was sore, the left side of her neck was tight and she developed a severe headache, according to the police report. Still, 45 minutes after the incident, Sathre returned to the room to continue caring for the 47-year-old woman who allegedly attacked her, according to the report.That violent encounter wasn’t the first for Sathre, who has been a nurse for more than 20 years, and it wasn’t the only workplace violence incident at the hospital last year. Sathre’s incident was one of 147 incidents reported to PeaceHealth Southwest administrators in 2017.Workplace violence isn’t unique to PeaceHealth Southwest; Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center recorded 91 incidents last year. And, at both hospitals, those only account for the incidents reported by staff. Hospital officials suspect the number of actual incidents of violence is greater.last_img read more

Food & Drink: Chef conjures vegan, gluten-free goodies

first_imgRachel Pinsky can be emailed at couveeats@gmail.com. Follow her on Instagram @couveeats and @rachelapinsky and on Facebook @coueeats. Five years ago, after surviving a harrowing health crisis, JoJo Reily abandoned her career as a Cordon Bleu-trained pastry chef. She held a variety of jobs trying to decide what she would do next. One of those jobs was working at the Nature’s Wild Harvest booth at the Vancouver Farmers Market, where she noticed a lack of vegan and gluten-free treats (she had changed her own diet in response to her health problems).Reily decided to start Blackbird Alchemy Bakery to serve that niche. She felt confident she could come up with recipes for delicious treats but admits there was a learning process.“I think it’s intuition, you have the training but then you need intuition. I was nailing some recipes pretty quick,” she said. “Just like regular baking, certain things have to be chilled first or when you bake them they’ll be flat. Certain things when you combine them with other things do weird things. I learned that I have to watch out with my baking powder with the oat scones because when you have baking powder, when it mixes with other things, it can have an ammonia smell.”Reily explained the name for her bakery (Blackbird Alchemy) and the creation of its logo, “Blackbirds have always been my thing. It’s probably a spirit animal for me. And Alchemy is taking things and transforming them into something new so it all fit together. I painted my sign and just started painting on that and it all just came out.”She stocks muffins (like chocolate decadence, banana chocolate chip, apple cinnamon streusel), scones (like cranberry orange), tartlettes, and cookies (like double chocolate chip, chocolate peppermint, cherry chocolate coconut, walnut chocolate chip, peanut butter, almond jam-filled thumbprint, lemon crinkle, hazelnut tea cookies, and coconut macaroons) at her Vancouver Farmers Market booth. You can also find her treats at Wattle Tree Place.last_img read more

Oh my goodness.“You always buy what you can afford and it’s net spend at the end of the day. Our net spend compared to United’s net spend is massively different.“How can he say that?

Complaint on the eligibility of the Premier to be elected Member of

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#TurksandCaicos, December 22, 2017 – Providenciales – The TCI Integrity Commission (the Commission) hereby informs the public that on 12 November, 2017, the Commission received a formal complaint alleging, that the Premier, the Hon Sharlene Cartwright-Robinson, was not eligible to be elected a Member of the House of Assembly and so not qualified to hold the position of the Premier of the Turks and Caicos Islands.   The main ground of this allegation is that she was born in the Bahamas, holds and travels with a Bahamian Passport and thus holds dual citizenship contrary to Sections 49 and 50 of the TCI Constitution.   The complaint further alleged that she does not hold a valid current TCI passport and this has been the case for some time.In accordance with its constitutional and statutory duty to inquire into complaints of this nature, the Commission investigated these allegations and can confirm that they are false.   Prior to the 2012 General Elections and in compliance with the law as it was then interpreted, the Premier did renounce her Bahamian citizenship along with some other members of the House of Assembly affected.   She is also in possession of current and previous TCI Passports, some dating back to more than ten years ago.   She was thus eligible and was duly elected into the TCI House of Assembly in 2012.   Since then, and notwithstanding the current position of the law, she had neither applied for nor possessed any Bahamian Passport.   Thus, she remained eligible for and was duly elected into the House Assembly at the 2016 General Elections, contrary to the complaint.   Most, if not all, of these facts are easily verifiable from the public and official records of the relevant authorities in TCI and the Bahamas.The Commission is aware that this complaint, unfortunately has also been relayed and made subject of public commentary in social media.   As stated in a previous press statement, the Commission recognizes that social media provides a platform through which persons freely interact and communicate various information on any matter, using their names, pseudonyms or plainly anonymous.   The Commission is once again emphasizing that persons who use the liberty of social media as a cloak to make or give false and malicious information or complaints against other persons, agencies or institutions, especially where the truth of such information or complaint can easily be confirmed, must be prepared to face the severe consequences under the law for doing so.   In such cases, the Commission has a duty to also investigate whether the complaint is falsely and maliciously made, and will be doing so in relation to the complaint in this matter.Richard BeenDeputy Director, TCI Integrity Commission.
