Congressman Slams Governor Over Nursing Home Employee Testing Order

first_imgShare:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window),Cuomo is such an ass. He sent all those with covid-19 back in to the nursing homes and killed how many? Now he’s gone completely off the deep end. Reed is correct.,GOP stated they do not represent democratic controlled states and do not plan to aid them, why is tommy concerned? Isnt dead NY’ers a win win for them or do you want democrats in camps too because they spread the virus? Hey Tommy did sell off your stocks in that two week window trump downplayed a pandemic that has currently killed more then 80,000 Americans, did ya tommy? Photo: PixabayCORNING – An official is calling out Governor Cuomo over his executive order this week requiring all nursing home staff be tested twice a week for the COVID-19 virus. Congressman Tom Reed was asked by WNYNewsNow about the mandate. Reed says the issue isn’t whether or not New York State will have the funding for the tests. He says the order may not be feasible.“The magnitude of the testing capacity and the actual performance that the Governor has put here would actually quadruple,” Reed said. “Quadrupling the tests…I just don’t know how you can comply with it. That’s why I’m looking forward to this open dialogue that we’ve put together with the nursing operators with our regular hospital call that we do on a daily basis and with our EMOs and our county officials this afternoon to say, ‘How is this even realistically achievable given the magnitude of the burden that you’ve just put on the entire New York State nursing home situation?’“My understanding is we do not have the resources to meet that twice weekly requirement that the Governor just issued from the hip, in my opinion,” Reed added. “And what will happen is if they lose their license, which is the penalty being put on the table, for our nursing homes to operate, or a significant fine of up to $10,000 a day, essentially you’re going to force these residents of nursing homes to be pretty much put out on the street.” Reed says he hopes the Governor has “something in mind in order to meet the requirements of the test kits.”“Really, you’re going to pull a nursing home’s license during this crisis and put all of those people on the street?,” Reed inquired. “That makes no sense to me.”Reed notes that all personnel would be tested, even if they don’t have direct contact with residents. For example, people who work in administrative roles or in food service will be part of the testing.“It’s not a question of money. It’s a question of one, is it practicable? And two, Governor, what are you trying to accomplish? Why would you limit it to twice a week?” Reed asked. “If the goal is to make sure nobody is going into a nursing home with a COVID-19 situation, you would have to do daily testing performance on the staffers, correct? Just because you weren’t exposed on Monday, doesn’t mean you’re not exposed on Wednesday.”WNYNewsNow will continue to cover the ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic, putting facts over fear. last_img read more

Oklahoma coal plant loses contract, puts future in doubt

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享The Oklahoman:The future for an independent power generator and its roughly 100 employees in eastern Oklahoma is decidedly hazy.An executive with AES Shady Point, a coal-fired electrical generation facility in Le Flore County, said Tuesday the plant could close as soon as January. Lundy Kiger, AES Shady Point’s vice president, said that may be the only alternative for the 360-megawatt facility after receiving notification from Oklahoma Gas & Electric Co. this month that the larger utility won’t execute another five-year extension of a long-running power purchase agreement between the two that’s been around since 1991.OG&E entered into the power purchase agreement with AES as part of its compliance with the Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act of 1978, which Congress enacted as part of the National Energy Act. The initial agreement between AES and OG&E was good from 1991, when the plant went online, through 2008, with an option for the parties to extend the agreement by five years up to three additional times.But its cost to produce the power OG&E has bought to provide part of its needed generating mix has become comparatively more expensive than other alternatives over time, especially as the power market has become much larger and much more competitive.The utility notified AES in early 2017 it likely would seek proposals from various power providers to consider other alternatives this year, before agreeing to keep the contract in place until the start of 2019.More: Cheaper power is dimming the future of a coal-fired electricity generator in Oklahoma Oklahoma coal plant loses contract, puts future in doubtlast_img read more

Free movement at risk in heart of Europe as Swiss vote

first_imgVoter participation is generally low in Switzerland’s popular polls, and rarely inches above 50 percent, but a far higher voter participation than usual is expected this time, with some cantons anticipating as high as 60 percent. SVP’s initiative calls for Switzerland to revise its constitution to ensure it can autonomously handle immigration policy.The party, which has built its brand by condemning immigration and EU influence, warns that the wealthy Alpine country is facing “uncontrolled and excessive immigration”.While not an EU member, Switzerland is bound to the bloc through an array of intricately connected bilateral agreements.If the SVP initiative passes, authorities would have one year to negotiate an end to the 1999 agreement on the free movement of persons between Switzerland and the bloc.The proposal goes even further than a similar measure, also backed by the SVP, that narrowly passed in February 2014, demanding that Bern impose quotas on the number of work permits issued to EU citizens.That vote threw Swiss-EU relations into disarray, with Brussels warning any curbs on immigration by EU citizens would put a whole range of bilateral agreements at risk.Bern struggled to find a way to respect the vote without permanently alienating EU neighbors, in the end reaching an agreement in 2016 that stopped far short of an initial quotas plan, which Brussels had fiercely rejected.Instead, Bern opted merely to require Swiss employers to jump through a few bureaucratic hoops before hiring from the bloc.The SVP condemned that compromise as a “betrayal” and launched its new initiative.Votes on the SVP’s initiative and several other issues had been scheduled to take place in May, but were postponed since the coronavirus lockdown measures prevented campaigning.As soon as those measures began lifting a few months ago, the SVP put up campaign posters, including one showing a jeans-clad behind with an EU-starred belt sitting heavily on a map of Switzerland, under the words: “Enough is enough!”While the 2014 vote still looms large in Switzerland’s collective memory, opinion polls hint that anxiety over immigration has lessened.The SVP also finds itself more isolated than ever, with the government, parliament, unions and employer organizations opposed to the initiative.Opponents stress the importance of the EU relationship for the country’s economy.And the government has cautioned that if Switzerland unilaterally voids the free movement accord, a “guillotine” clause will come into force to freeze the entire package of Swiss-EU deals, including on trade.Swiss voters were also voting on a range of other issues, with referenda on dishing out six billion Swiss francs (US$6.6 billion) for new fighter jets, and on granting two weeks’ paternity leave to new fathers expected to pass, according to surveys.Topics : The Swiss were voting Sunday on limiting immigration from the European Union, which, while not expected to pass, has sparked fears a shock “yes” could devastate relations with the bloc.The initiative, backed by the populist right-wing Swiss People’s Party (SVP) — Switzerland’s largest party — has lost public support in recent polls.The latest survey showed 65 percent of those questioned opposed the call to tear up an agreement permitting the free movement of people between Switzerland and the surrounding European Union. It seems unlikely the initiative will garner the double majority needed to pass, winning both the popular vote and most of the 26 cantons.But the SVP has eked out surprise victories in the past in its war against tightening relations with the EU, fueling concern that Switzerland’s relationship with its biggest trading partner could be in jeopardy.Most people vote in advance in the popular polls and referenda held in the country every few months as part of the  direct democratic system, and ballot boxes open for just a few hours.Polls open at different times in different cantons, but will all close by midday local time, with initial results expected by early afternoon.last_img read more

Ichthys FPSO leaves South Korea shipyard

first_imgThe Ichthys Venturer, an FPSO destined for the Inpex-operated Ichthys field in Australia, has left the shipyard in South Korea.According to the FPSO’s AIS data, provided by Marine Traffic, the Ichthys Venturer left the Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering shipyard over the weekend and is now located in South Korea’s waters with restricted manoeuvrability.Offshore Energy Today has reached out to Inpex seeking more info on the upcoming tow to the final location offshore Australia.An Inpex spokesperson said: “The floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) facility construction  is now complete. We are progressing the final preparation, commissioning activities and checks prior to sail away. Sail away will proceed following these checks and pending weather conditions.”Once at the location, the FPSO will be permanently moored for 40 years of operation in the Ichthys field, in the Timor Sea about 220 kilometers off the Western Australian coast.Gas will undergo initial processing on the Ichthys Explorer semi-submersible central processing platform to extract condensate and water, and remove impurities in order to make the gas suitable for transmission.Most condensate will be transferred from the CPF to the nearby Ichthys Venturer FPSO for offshore processing, with the remainder sent to Darwin with the gas via the project’s 890 kilometer gas export pipeline.More condensate will be extracted from the gas at the onshore plant in Darwin. Once in the field, the FPSO and CPF will be linked by an electric cable, allowing power supply to flow from each facility as a contingency measure as required.Offshore Energy Today has previously reported that the Central Processing Platform reached the Ichthys field location, where it was moored in June.Cracks on FPSO?Worth noting, CNBC recently reported, citing what it said were people close to the matter, that cracks were found on the FPSO Ichthys Venturer equipment, delaying the project. In an email Offshore Energy Today an Inpex spokesperson said: “We tend not to comment on individual technical matters, but what I can tell you is that there are no issues with the FPSO.”Offshore Energy Today Stafflast_img read more
