The Washington Post reports needed paperwork was submitted last week, more than seven weeks after President Donald Trump nominated the former Georgia governor to the post at the Department of Agriculture. But a spokesperson for Michigan’s Debbie Stabenow, the top Democrat on the Senate Agriculture Committee, says the committee still needs Perdue’s ethics paperwork and FBI background check, as of Friday. Perdue’s ethics forms are also missing from the Office of Government Ethics website, which posts the documents when they are completed.The ethics agreements identify potential conflicts of interest and how they will be resolved. Perdue has had businesses in grain trading, trucking, and exports. It is unclear whether any of those interests are causing the holdup.Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

first_img SyriaMiddle East – North Africa Damascus TV presenter arrested under cyber-crime law Toll of ten years of civil war on journalists in Syria March 12, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information Four Syrian activists abducted in the Damascus suburbs, apparently in relation to their human rights and humanitarian work, must be released immediately and unconditionally, 16 human rights organizations said today. Award-winning Syrian human rights defender and writer Razan Zaitouneh, along with her husband, Wa’el Hamada, and two colleagues, Nazem Hamadi and Samira Khalil, were abducted by unknown individuals on 9 December 2013 from a joint office for the Violations Documentation Center (VDC) and the Local Development and Small Projects Support (LDSPS) in the Damascus suburb of Douma, part of Eastern Ghouta, an area under the control of a number of armed opposition groups that is being besieged by government forces. In a joint statement issued on 10 December 2013, the VDC and the LDSPS attributed the abduction of Razan Zaitouneh to her activities as a founding member of these organizations. The VDC is an independent non-governmental organization that has been mainly documenting human rights abuses committed by the Syrian government in the context of the conflict. The LDSPS provides humanitarian assistance, particularly to medical centres in areas like Eastern Ghouta. Like many other human rights activists perceived by the government to be involved in pro-reform protests, Razan Zaitouneh was forced into hiding in 2011 after receiving threats from the Syrian authorities. In the last few months, she received threats from at least one armed opposition group in the Eastern Ghouta area. Razan Zaitouneh was recently the recipient of the 2013 International Women of Courage Award. She also has received the Anna Politkovskaya Prize and, in 2011, the European Parliament’s Sakhorov Prize for Freedom of Thought. Civil society activists, writers, journalists and lawyers have borne a heavy price during the ongoing conflict in Syria, falling victim to unlawful killings, enforced disappearances, arbitrary detention and torture and other ill-treatment at the hands of government security forces and, more recently, becoming targets for armed opposition groups that disapprove of their activities. All parties to the conflict should adhere to their obligations under international humanitarian law, which prohibits the abduction of civilians, hostage-taking and torture.

It is focused on reaching Latino and African-American youths and adults, especially in Northwest Pasadena.The displays are set to be featured as social media messages, bus shelter displays, interior placards inside Pasadena Transit buses and point-of-sale ads voluntarily used by tobacco retailers inside stores.“It’s important for us to protect the health of Pasadena residents, especially those who cannot speak for themselves such as the children in our community. Targeted marketing to our children requires a response on our part in order to counter the effects and ensure that we are preventing their access to these harmful tobacco products,” said Pasadena Public Health Director Michael Johnson.The Pasadena campaign is a three-year program to help increase awareness about the dangers of mentholated cigarettes, electronic cigarettes and flavored tobacco products, often cleverly packaged to entice young people to start using these dangerous products.“Most young people who use tobacco report using flavored products,” said City Health Officer Dr. Ying-Ying Goh “These products are deadly tools that hook young people onto a lifetime of tobacco use.”The City of Pasadena Public Health Department is combating the disproportionately high use of mentholated cigarettes, electronic cigarettes and flavored tobacco products by Hispanic/Latinos and African-Americans in the City, according to a press release.“This campaign has a very important goal of advancing health equity. In addition, an innovate aspect of this campaign is that it will include the display of these ads inside tobacco retail establishments at the point of sale,” said Goh.Tobacco use is still the number one preventable cause of death in the United States and statistics show the use of these types of tobacco products are very popular products with Hispanic/Latinos and African Americans, according to Goh.Funding for the educational campaign comes from a three-year, $1.5 million grant from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control Prevention’s Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH) Program.“This campaign is needed in our community. It’s hard-hitting and timely,” said Pasadena Vice-Mayor Gene Masuda.Currently, the federal REACH program has provided 49 grants, but Pasadena is the only city-based health department in the country to receive funding and is also the only grantee using the funds for an anti-menthol, anti-tobacco product prevention effort.“Historic evidence indicates that the menthol cigarette campaigns have been focused on sales targeted specifically to African-Americans in our communities,” said Johnson who mentioned that more than 70 percent of African-Americans live in the Northwest area of Pasadena.The most recent available information from the California Healthy Kids survey indicates that the use of e-cigarattes among the PUSD teens in 2015 is still a significant public health risk with 16 percent of seventh graders, 29 percent of ninth graders and 34 percent of eleventh graders were reported having tried e-cigarettes.“Today I’m here to say that this campaign is needed in the African-American community and in the community as a whole. The majority of those advertisements about cigarettes happen to be menthol in our publications as well as people of color in general. What we’re doing here as a city—I think we’re moving in steps in the right direction,” said District 1 Councilmember Tyron Hampton.The current campaign was developed in conjunction with The Pastilla Institute, a Pasadena-based creative marketing and branding agency. Several local organizations helped provide input on shaping the campaign’s messages, including the Pasadena Tobacco Prevention Coalition, NATHA (Neighbors Acting Together Helping All), Day One and the Pasadena Cigarette Stompers Youth Ambassadors.“We’re forever grateful to the CDC for this opportunity to work on countering pro tobacco influences in our community and supporting the funding to address these equity issues,” said Johnson.Over the last decade, Pasadena has been a leader in the battle against tobacco-related death and disability through adoption of innovative tobacco control policies.

Green Coast Pet celebrates that pets are part of the family, and taking care of them can be expensive, especially during this hard time,” Green Coast Pet Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer Mike Bateman said. “We simply want to make it easier to give pets the products they love.”Bateman said in a Jan. 24 interview that the company had some great stories of furloughed employees taking advantage of the offer just one day after it was announced.“No matter where you stand on the political spectrum, these employees still have pets,” he said. “So we give back where we can. We partner with rescues, we make donations, we do more outside of this particular thing.”With Nick Massey, Bateman established Green Coast Pet after working together for over a year at a small start-up pet company. Their mission is to provide pets with the best possible products on the market today.“To make use of the offer, U.S. federal employees can simply send an email to [email protected], share a little bit about you and your pet, and enjoy your next Green Coast Pet order at-cost,” a company statement said.For more information about Green Coast Pet, visit or email [email protected] First Heatwave Expected Next Week last_img read more

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) — The commander and the senior enlisted officer of a U.S. Navy SEAL team have been relieved of their duties after investigations into alleged sexual assault and sexual harassment while their unit was deployed to East Africa, officials said.Both senior leaders had been sent back to the United States in May while the allegations were investigated and could possibly face administrative punishments.“The commanding officer and command master chief of an East Coast-based Naval Special Warfare command were relieved of their duties on July 9,” said Lt. Jacqui Maxwell, a spokesperson for Naval Special Warfare Group Two.“Cmdr. Jarrod Donaldson and Master Chief Jon Franklin were relieved from their position by Capt. Jamie Sands, commander, Naval Special Warfare Group Two,” Maxwell added.“Donaldson and Franklin have been administratively reassigned to Naval Special Warfare Group Two.”In early May, Donaldson and Franklin were “pulled from deployment” in East Africa after sexual misconduct allegations were made. Both leaders retained their command positions within the unit stateside while the allegations were investigated.One of the team leaders was investigated for the alleged inappropriate touching of a female service member during the deployment, two defense officials said.Both team leaders are being investigated for allegations of sexual harassment, officials said.Donaldson and Franklin were investigated by a command investigation and the Navy’s Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) investigated personal conduct allegations against Franklin, Lt. Maxwell said.They have been relieved of their duties now that the investigations are concluded. “The Navy will follow due process,” Maxwell said.Substantiated allegations are typically followed by potential nonjudicial punishments meted out by a commanding officer, a disciplinary review board or both, a defense official said. SEAL Team units deployed to East Africa typically operate in Djibouti, where the United States has a base, and in Somalia, where they assist in an advisory capacity with the Somali military.While “pulled from deployment,” both senior leaders have not been relieved of their duties as the commanding officer and command master chief of their SEAL Team. While stateside they will remain in those positions as the allegations are investigated.The Navy has eight SEAL team units, four odd-numbered units stationed in Coronado, California, and four even-numbered units stationed at Little Creek, Virginia.A ninth SEAL Team is more commonly known as SEAL Team Six, though its official name is Special Warfare Development Group DEVGRU.

first_imgSgt. Elder Fernandes, 23, is pictured in a photo released by the Killeen Police Department in Killeen, Texas, on Aug. 20, 2020. He was reported missing by his family, who have not heard from him since Aug. 17. – (Killeen Police Department)By ELLA TORRES and MATT SEYLER, ABC News(KILLEEN, Texas) — Authorities in Texas are searching for another missing Fort Hood soldier, following a tumultuous period for the base, including other disappearances and deaths.Sgt. Elder Fernandes, a 23-year-old chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear specialist assigned to the 1st Cavalry Division, has not been heard from by his family since Monday, prompting them to report him missing two days later, according to a statement from the Killeen Police Department issued Thursday evening.His mother, Ailina Fernandes, and aunt, Isabel Fernandes, told ABC News on Friday that he had been hospitalized recently, but was discharged Monday. Both his mom and aunt said they spoke to him on the phone while he was at the hospital, but he did not reveal much as to why he was there.Fernandes was last seen by his staff sergeant on Monday afternoon, when he was dropped off at a residence located in the 2700 block of Woodlands Drive in Killeen, police said. His aunt said she spoke to his friends, who told her that where the sergeant dropped him off was not where Fernandes lived.When his mother eventually went to the base to check on him on Wednesday, she said she found his car with all his belongings inside. Fernandes also had a new apartment waiting to be moved into with utilities paid, but he never picked up the key, according to his mom.Fort Hood is involved in the search.“Our primary concern is for his health and well-being,” the statement from Fort Hood read in part. “We have completed a search of the entire division area, to include motorpools, parking lots, and headquarters buildings and the unit is in contact with the Soldiers Family, the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Division and civilian law enforcement agencies to help find him as we continue our search.”His aunt said it was not like her nephew to be out of touch.“He has been in touch with us since last week. I personally spoke to him Friday morning. He spoke with his mom this past Sunday and he promised he would call on Monday,” she told ABC Houston station KTRK. “Monday came and went and he didn’t call, and he didn’t answer calls from anyone else. Tuesday, no calls and my sister ended up flying down there yesterday, and still we haven’t heard from him.”Fernandes’ disappearance comes after a difficult month for Fort Hood.Pvt. Mejhor Morta, a 26-year-old Fort Hood soldier, was found dead on July 17 in a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers reservoir, government officials and local police said. Investigators said he likely drowned.About two weeks before that, on July 1, human remains were discovered near Fort Hood and subsequently identified as Vanessa Guillen, a 20-year-old soldier who had been missing since late April. A suspect in the case, 20-year-old Army specialist Aaron Robinson, died by suicide as officials moved in on him. Another suspect, Cecily Aguilar, 22, Robinson’s girlfriend, is accused of helping him dispose of Guillen’s body. She was charged with one count of conspiracy to tamper with evidence and pleaded not guilty.On June 19, skeletal remains were found near Fort Hood based on an anonymous tip and later identified as Pvt. Gregory Wedel-Morales, who had been last seen Aug. 19, 2019. Foul play is believed to have played a role in the death, according to KTRK.Fernandes was wearing black Army shorts, a t-shirt and red athletic shoes. Anyone with information on Fernandes is urged to contact the Fort Hood Military Police at (254) 288-1170, U.S. Army CID at (254) 287-2722, or the Killeen Police Department at (254) 200-7905.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
