A St Paul’s Bay family living in Triq l-Iskuna had to deal with a rat infestation as a colony of rodents nested in an old mattress left on the family’s doorstep for more than two years.

“After several reports, they finally took it down,” a family member said.

The family are among several residents of St Paul’s Bay facing deteriorating health conditions as authorities struggle to manage rubbish collection, bulk litter and rubbish in Malta’s most populous city.

The problem persists despite the fact that, since the beginning of this year, employees of the Cleaning and Maintenance Division have been deployed every afternoon, picking up an average of 15 tons of waste per day from Monday to Sunday.

Several residents expressed their concerns Malta weather. Resident Alexandra Tutulan said rubbish is sometimes left to ferment for two or three days in the heat.

“We are hit with a really bad smell of rotting garbage every time we leave our building, she said.

Garbage is a serious problem in Triq l-Iskuna, according to a resident who also complained about the rat infestation.

“People keep throwing stuff everywhere,” she said.

Greta Staknienė said many areas are littered with empty water bottles, cans and plastic bags.

We are hit with a very bad smell of rotting garbage every time we leave our building

St Paul’s Bay Deputy Mayor Carlos Zarb said the locality’s large population means that waste problems are proportionately greater than in other locations.

A preliminary report from the 2021 National Census showed that the population of St Paul’s Bay has almost doubled in 10 years, reaching 32,000 in 2021. Much of this growth is attributed to immigration.

Two residents attributed the problem to a number of strangers who are unfamiliar with the schedules of the garbage collection system.

Recyclable, biodegradable and mixed waste is intended to be placed in bags of different colors and taken out on specific days.

A fine is supposed to be imposed on anyone who fails to meet the timetable, but enforcement is lacking, the deputy mayor said. He said a better rubbish collection system needs to be put in place, including the introduction of underground bins, he said.

Questions have been sent to the Local Enforcement System Agency, the responsible entity, but no response has been received at the time of writing.

A St Paul’s Bay resident working at a hotel in the area said: ‘Sometimes I don’t understand why tourists come here. As soon as I open my front door, I see garbage bags.

Malta Hotel and Restaurant Association chairman Tony Zahra said the cleanliness problem had been prevalent for many years with some improvements noted for a short time before it “returned to where it started “.

“It’s one of our main tourist destinations and we have to keep the area clean all the time,” he said.

The Cleaning and Maintenance Division has invested in a refuse collection vehicle, a high-pressure street cleaner and two dedicated crew cab dump vans solely for St Paul’s Bay, according to general manager Ramon Deguara.

“Unfortunately, in this locality, waste collection services have to be more frequent because the demand is very high. Illegal trash dumped on sidewalks is out of control,” Deguara said.

“The spilled items range from monitors to furniture, appliances and mattresses,” he added.

Walk for Domestic Violence Awareness | New https://flexiblecouplings.co.in/walk-for-domestic-violence-awareness-new/ Fri, 30 Sep 2022 11:00:00 +0000 https://flexiblecouplings.co.in/walk-for-domestic-violence-awareness-new/

When a crowd of volunteers, supporters and survivors set off from Diamond Park for the 12th Annual Domestic Violence Awareness Walk on Monday, they will head south from Diamond Park, take a right on Park Avenue, walk towards the north on Park, then back. to the starting point in front of the City Building.

When completed, participants will have walked exactly 1 mile, said Patti Prince, the women’s services shelter manager who runs the event each year, and the message to those who walk as well as those who seem to pass them – or read in the newspaper, or hear about it from friends – will be clear.

“What would you do,” said Prince, “if you had to walk a mile in their shoes?”

The event will also provide possible answers, courses of action and resources to help victims of domestic violence. Women’s Services Inc. is the only domestic violence shelter in all of Crawford County, Prince pointed out in an interview this week, and one of its goals as Domestic Violence Awareness Month begins each October is to remind people of the resources available in the county and how they can help those affected.

While domestic violence may seem distant to some and is too often overlooked by others, Domestic Violence Awareness Month creates an opportunity to show members of the community how they can be more aware, what it to watch out for, what to say to people dealing with domestic violence issues. , and generally how they can help, according to Prince.

Increased awareness through annual reminders can only help as the potential for domestic violence is a frequent concern for the Meadville Police Department.

“We regularly respond to domestic disputes,” said chef Michael Tautin. “Not all of them involve violence, but we respond to a lot.”

Domestic disputes remained a constant concern throughout Tautin’s 22 years with the department.

“Answering servants is unfortunately part of the job,” he noted.

Fortunately for victims of domestic violence, responding to such incidents is also part of the routine of Women’s Services. In fact, Rob Francis, prevention educator and volunteer coordinator, said all staff members have counsel counsel as part of their job title.

This is part of the message for volunteers who undergo extensive training to help with agency responses. Francis was working with a group of five such volunteers, made up of retirees and students, this week.

Once formed, Francis said, the group will join others who will help with virtually every aspect of the agency’s work – work that ranges from cleaning and helping with childcare to sheltering help. to educational programs in local schools; and to handling crisis situations reported through the Women’s Helplines, available at (814) 333-9766 and (888) 881-0189.

“Our volunteers are really a vital part of our operation here, and we always have great ones,” Francis said. “People who come here want to help. They want to make things better for their community and we really strive to help them do that.

Katie Perez, a junior from Allegheny College, is part of the current cohort of volunteers taking 40 hours of training that runs from September to November. Like Francis, she will be part of the crowd that gathers in Diamond Park at 4:30 p.m. Monday to listen to survivors’ stories and hear remarks from other speakers before the group takes to the streets.

“I think it’s important because I feel like this issue isn’t really being addressed. It is, but not to that extent, and it’s often avoided when it comes to young children and teenagers,” Perez said. “Women’s Services does a really good job of making sure this training is taught well – it’s really informative and it brings to light things you might not necessarily think of and they do it in a way that creates a safe environment.”

Monday’s mile-long march reinforces that goal of bringing to light issues that too often remain in the dark.

“A lot of people still have the ‘what happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors’ attitude, and it’s not like that anymore,” Prince said, pointing to an increased willingness among men to tackle cases of domestic violence and a growing awareness in the LGBT community. “People need to realize that it’s not just affecting women anymore. It’s everyone’s business.

And while attendees won’t literally walk in the shoes of survivors, real shoes will help promote the message of the event. Prince will be sporting a “great pair of new tennis shoes.

“They say, ‘Domestic violence is strong,'” she explained.

SANIBEL, Fla. – The death toll in the United States from Hurricane Ian has risen to a total of four after an official said late Thursday that two people had been confirmed dead on a hard-hit barrier island on the west coast of Florida.

Sanibel City Manager Dana Souza said the deaths were confirmed by firefighters, but provided no further details. A local medical examiner’s office said it could not comment and that all details of the deaths would have to come from the sheriff’s office.

In addition to the two Sanibel residents, a 38-year-old Lake County man died Wednesday in a car accident after his vehicle aquaplaned, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Medical examiners determined his death was related to the storm.

A 72-year-old man from Deltona was also confirmed dead on Thursday. Volusia County Sheriff’s Office officials said the man went out to drain his pool and fell into a ditch. He was later found dead.

NORTH PORT, Fla. – Rescuers from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, other states and counties were racing against time as the sun was about to set Thursday in North Port, to help stranded families in their own homes surrounded by streets that had turned into canals.

The city was one of several cities in Florida where rescues were underway as Hurricane Ian continued to track north toward Georgia and the Carolinas.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said at a Thursday night news conference that there have been 700 confirmed rescues statewide as a result of the storm. “Some of the damage was almost indescribable,” he said.

Earlier in the day, DeSantis described an ongoing effort to airlift people stranded on Sanibel Island after the storm destroyed the only bridge to barrier island outside of Fort Myers. He said the state would also send additional boats to the area for rescue operations.

‘Sanibel is destruction,’ he said, adding ‘it was hit by a truly biblical storm surge, and it blew away roads, it blew away structures that weren’t new and able to withstand to that.”

DeSantis said as of 6 p.m. Thursday, more than 2.6 million people remained without power, including southwest Florida where Ian made landfall.

Residents captured videos and photos of the destruction Thursday afternoon as the waters rose and crashed over the pier, leaving debris on the shore.

Flagler Sheriff Rick Staly told News4JAX on Thursday that he doesn’t believe the pier — which was damaged by Tropical Storm Isaias in 2020, as well as Hurricane Matthew in 2016 — would survive the impact of the storm.

Authorities have advised residents to avoid the pier for safety reasons.

ENGLEWOOD, Fla. — Christine Bomlitz, of Las Vegas, was eager to join her mother, Shirley Affolter, an 84-year-old resident of a retirement community just north of where Hurricane Ian made landfall.

She had no way of contacting her mother, who had lost her cell phone before the storm. Then his landline went down. Affolter was supposed to have left with other residents as part of an escape plan but was never picked up. So she squats down. It was too late to catch him.

Bomlitz grew distraught over the hours and as Ian’s ferocity increased. Then morning came, but still no word. Frantic, she published a call for help on social networks.

Along the coast, a storm surge of 4 to 7 feet is expected, rivaling the problems created by hurricanes over the past decade. If Ian lands as a hurricane, it would be the first hurricane to hit the state since Matthew in 2016.

National Guard troops are positioned to help deal with the aftermath, including water rescues and road crews will be ready to clear the roads.

Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards has approved sending 245 National Guard members to Florida. The state is also responding to requests from a Family Shelter Task Force and a Hazardous Materials Team. “Louisiana knows all too well the chaos and destruction that a hurricane as strong as Ian can bring, and we will do everything we can to help our neighbors in Florida and other states affected by this storm,” Edwards said. in a press release.

The American Society of Plumbing Engineers is meeting – and it’s great to be back https://flexiblecouplings.co.in/the-american-society-of-plumbing-engineers-is-meeting-and-its-great-to-be-back/ Thu, 29 Sep 2022 20:05:59 +0000 https://flexiblecouplings.co.in/the-american-society-of-plumbing-engineers-is-meeting-and-its-great-to-be-back/

INDIANAPOLIS, IN — It has been nearly four years since the American Society of Plumbing Engineers (ASPE) convention and exposition met in person. And it was great to be back. Although the numbers are not yet known, “The 2022 ASPE Convention and Expo in Indianapolis was one of the best shows in ASPE’s history – one of, if not the busiest from a business perspective. numbers, and interactions between exhibitors and attendees were outstanding from all accounts, said Billy Smith, FASPE, Executive Director/CEO, ASPE.

“Overall, feedback from our members, fellow attendees and exhibitors has been overwhelmingly positive, and we couldn’t have asked for more. Also, all of our social media platforms provided rave reviews, which is always a plus,” Smith continued.

After hosting the 2021 Tech Symposium in San Diego, in person, ASPE officials saw the enthusiasm of those in attendance. With this, officials wanted to ensure that the Indy show was on point with all segments – education, networking, social events and most importantly the Expo. “There’s not much you can do and gain from the continued deluge of virtual meetings. There comes a time when you just hit a wall. Being able to hold this event in person was a way to break down those walls and remove all the boundaries that the pandemic had imposed on our industry,” Smith said.

Launch celebration

The biennial convention usually begins with a celebration for its members. This year’s Sunday night party, presented by NIBCO Inc., was special for everyone in attendance. “ASPE’s kick-off party on Sunday night felt like a reunion in the best sense of the word,” said Aaron Kilburg, Commercial Sales Manager, NIBCO, Inc. enjoying incredible live entertainment. It was a privilege for NIBCO, Inc. to host the evening’s festivities.”

According to Smith, the Sunday night party set the bar high for the upcoming Convention & Expo in Columbus, Ohio. “In fact, a member of the Columbus Convention Bureau was on hand to witness the party up close, so they’re already looking at ways to kick things into high gear in 2024,” Smith said.

Opening speech

The keynote featured former Air Force fighter pilot and Thunderbirds air show crew member Chris Stricklin. Stricklin told the story of his career in the Air Force and then later joining the Thunderbirds at a young age.

At an air show at Mountain Home Air Force Base in Idaho, Chris was piloting Thunderbird Six, a solo demonstration aircraft. At the start of the show, Stricklin was forced to perform an emergency ejection while performing a Split S maneuver, which he had successfully performed over 200 times previously. Chris angled the F-16 away from the crowd of onlookers and ejected when it was only 140 feet above the ground. The $20 million fighter jet slammed into the surface 0.8 seconds later and was completely destroyed, and Chris’ life was changed forever.

“The tragic air show crash and its story of recovery and family has culminated in a great and moving story that has stirred feelings of anxiety, empathy, grief and patriotism,” said Ron George, CPD, President of Plumb-Tech Design & Consulting Services, LLC. , and ASPE member for 43 years.

After the years-long in-person hiatus from physical exposure and virtual meetings, George looked forward to seeing new product enhancements, networking with industry friends, receiving CEU credits and participating in programs. educational.

Technical sessions

“ASPE is the only convention and exhibition reserved for plumbing engineers. Attendees can choose from 30 educational/technical sessions, helping them maintain their credentials, and the varied topics we offer connect seamlessly to their daily work,” said Billy Smith.

Technical sessions covered Legionella, hot water controls, carbon monoxide and plastic flues, as well as disasters that can occur in plumbing systems due to floods, hurricanes, chemical spills and other environmental disasters, among other topics.

“My favorite technical presentation was given by Matt Freije, President, HC Information Resources Inc. Freije gave an excellent presentation on Legionella and Legionnaires’ disease, and how facility owners can control Legionella by establishing a water management team and then carrying out an appropriate assessment to construct a water pipe system to locate areas of the system that may be conducive to bacteria growth as part of an overall program of water management,” said George.

On the living room

What was the quality of the Expo floor? “Well, one exhibitor said the first day he never looked down to see what time it was until we announced the floor would be closing in 10 minutes. That’s impressive,” Smith said.

Exhibitors were pleased with the show and the attendance and it gave them the opportunity to show products on the floor. “It’s great to be back at this post-COVID show in Indianapolis, where we showcased our new tankless models with built-in circulation,” said Brian Fenske, Commercial Affairs Manager, Navien.

Don’t forget that ASPE is also a place where you can meet friends and other plumbing engineers who are dealing with similar projects. Having the opportunity to speak with all the manufacturers in the industry, see new and innovative products, and discuss your respective needs in the spec market – all in one place – can be the most important part of the convention. and the ASPE exhibition. “No other industry show has it all in one place: networking, social events, educational classes and the best show floor just for the plumbing industry,” Smith said.

Looking forward

Given the quality of Convention and Expo 2022, ASPE officials are already planning a big event for 2024 in Columbus. At every ASPE show, exhibitors pre-sign up for the next event, and it looks like a record number of pre-show booths have signed up for 2024. connect to the Convention Center as well as to Indy. Columbus also has an exciting downtown area with many new restaurants and shops, all within walking distance from the hotels. We are very excited about what Columbus will offer in 2024,” said Smith.

Rising awareness of natural household cleaning products is expected to propel the growth of the household cleaning products market. Consumers are increasingly turning to natural or green household cleaners because they give them a sense of sustainability and don’t contain dangerous chemicals.

Carlsbad approves articles to make streets safer during emergency proclamation https://flexiblecouplings.co.in/carlsbad-approves-articles-to-make-streets-safer-during-emergency-proclamation/ Wed, 28 Sep 2022 05:38:21 +0000 https://flexiblecouplings.co.in/carlsbad-approves-articles-to-make-streets-safer-during-emergency-proclamation/

SAN DIEGO — Work continues to improve street safety in the city of Carlsbad with an emergency proclamation approved in August.

The emergency proclamation to make the roads safer came after two fatal bicycle crashes in August and a 233% increase in e-bike and bicycle crashes in Carlsbad since 2019.

On Tuesday evening, the city presented the city council with more than 40 ideas and more than a dozen items it has already worked on.

“Tonight, Carlsbad City Council welcomed 44 ideas from staff and the community on ways to improve our local streets and roads,” Carlsbad City Deputy Manager Geoff Patnoe said after the Tuesday evening meeting.

The city has approved work to continue on the following, to name a few:

  • Roll for Safer Streets Together – $30.00
  • Bike Path Improvements – $421,000

On Tuesday, the city presented its funding on the proclamation. So far, it has spent about $350,000 of its $2 million budget for the proclamation on several items, including improved enforcement, more signage and green-painted bike lanes, to n’ to name a few.

Muslim cemetery clean-up project launched to restore dignity to final resting place of loved ones https://flexiblecouplings.co.in/muslim-cemetery-clean-up-project-launched-to-restore-dignity-to-final-resting-place-of-loved-ones/ Tue, 27 Sep 2022 04:02:59 +0000 https://flexiblecouplings.co.in/muslim-cemetery-clean-up-project-launched-to-restore-dignity-to-final-resting-place-of-loved-ones/

To restore the dignity and honor of deceased loved ones, Mowbray Muslim Cemetery has launched a Community Involvement Weekend where the public is invited to be part of a clean-up operation.

The initiative which will take place over two days from Saturday 29 to Sunday 30 October will give people the opportunity to clean and improve the graves of their loved ones.

Adv Shameemah Dollie Salie, a member of the Muslim Cemetery Board, says the private cemetery based at the Observatory has a history that stretches back to the 1800s.

“We have many old graves and a lot of heritage in the cemetery. What we have discovered over the years is that many headstones have been damaged. It is important to remember our heritage and our culture and we want to restore the sense of pride in where we come from and our ancestors.

Salie explains that under the bylaw, responsibility for individual graves rests with the family, while the cemetery and surrounding area is the responsibility of the cemetery board.

“So we would like to encourage the community to understand the importance of caring for the graves of their loved ones and also to be put in a position where we are reminded where we need to go back and the importance of living a life that will be remembered and rewarded by the Almighty.

She explains that the cleaning is crucial for the geolocation project that is in preparation for the cemetery.

“For the grave of your loved one to be geotagged, it is important that the gravestone is visible so that we can identify the deceased who rests in a particular grave so that the geotagging is effective.

“Geo-tagging will be done so that family members can identify on an app where their loved one is buried, as the name will appear and the vicinity of the grave will also be noted on the app.

Salie explains that if family members want their loved ones’ graves geotagged, “it’s important that they go out and identify those individual graves” and clean them up.

“During the Covid-19 period, many people were unable to welcome and send their loved ones in the way we are used to. This cleansing allows the community to come together and say their prayers and find some form of closure for the departure of so many loved ones. »

Sheikh Riad Fataar, second vice president of the Muslim Judicial Council (MJC-SA) and president of the MJC funeral administration, says they welcome the initiative.

“This is the resting place of our loved ones, and they should be honored and respected where they are. Everyone should come and make sure the graves of their loved ones are clean and look respectable.

He adds: “If you are cleaning the grave of a loved one, take the time to look around and attend to a grave that may be neglected and may not be that of a member of family or a friend. In this way, we preserve the dignity and honor of those who have passed away.

Salie says people are encouraged to bring their shovels, bags, buckets and gloves and get involved in the initiative.

“Present at the cemetery on weekends are a range of service providers and operational partners of the cemetery. Also participating are Things on Wheels, Bismillah on the Lounge and Good Hope Meat Hyper which will provide meals over the weekend at no cost to attendees.

Salie says she hopes the initiative will be successful so it can be rolled out to other cemeteries.

“The community can go out; we invite people to bring edibles to share with others. We will have those kinds of facilities available. If others feel they want to do the same, we welcome the initiative to spread, and any organization or supplier who wishes to join us and wishes to donate food, cleaning supplies or cold drinks is invited to do so.

India’s current account deficit is on the rise. What implications does this have for the Indian economy? https://flexiblecouplings.co.in/indias-current-account-deficit-is-on-the-rise-what-implications-does-this-have-for-the-indian-economy/ Mon, 26 Sep 2022 11:21:44 +0000 https://flexiblecouplings.co.in/indias-current-account-deficit-is-on-the-rise-what-implications-does-this-have-for-the-indian-economy/

In June this year, the Ministry of Finance spoke at length about the problem of the “double deficit” in India, which basically corresponds to the budget deficit and the current account deficit (CAD). With a booming trade deficit, India’s current account deficit is also widening. According to a latest Reuters poll, India’s current account deficit likely hit its highest level in almost a decade in the April-June quarter, driven by soaring global commodity prices and the most important capital outflows since the global financial crisis of 2008.

Today, as the Indian rupee hit a record high of 81 against the US dollar, coupled with a widening trade gap, concerns over the scale of the current account deficit in Asia’s third-largest economy, which has been eating away at investor confidence for months, are set to intensify. According to brokerage Motilal Oswal Financial Services, India’s current account deficit is likely to hit a ten-year high of 3.8% of gross domestic product (GDP) in 2022-23, up from 1.2% last year. . He estimated the CAD would widen 3.7% of GDP in the first quarter and peak at 5.5% in the second quarter amid continued global headwinds.

“We really need to focus on CAD; 3 percent of GDP is a high limit. You really have to get the point down because some of the things that have contributed to the increase in our [forex] reserves, are volatile by nature. And these are the ones that really drive the exchange rate down,” said renowned economist and former RBI Governor C. Rangarajan.

What does the rising CAD mean for the nation?

The CAD, as of now, is driven by India’s burgeoning trade deficit. With the depreciation of the Rupee, imports become more expensive, therefore, for a country like India, which imports expensive items and products like crude oil, semiconductors and electronics, the burden on the Treasury increases and this pushes the current account deficit higher. In addition, the deterioration of the CAD is putting pressure on capital account inflows.

So, in the current scenario, the current account deficit is likely to inflate, and as a result, the demand for foreign currency will also increase, causing the domestic currency to depreciate. And the depreciation of the currency and the increase in the current account deficit will lead to capital flight out of India. Another aspect of rupee depreciation is rising imported inflation, which in turn leads to rising generalized inflation in India. So, to curb volatility, the RBI also ensures that the rupee does not fall sharply as this may increase inflation in the economy. It makes periodic “interventions” in the foreign exchange markets by selling foreign currencies and buying rupees.

Q: I thought hurricane season was almost over. Should I be worried about other potential storms? —DW

Answer: According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30 each year, with the majority of storms occurring between mid-August and late October. Although the center of a hurricane is not expected to make landfall in our region, it is still important to be prepared for emergencies that may result from high winds and rains that may extend well beyond the center. of the storm. These extreme weather conditions can often cause power outages and flooding which can create dangerous and stressful situations for those who are unprepared.

The first step to preparing is to create a plan. Familiarize yourself with the emergency plans that already exist in your community. A good place to start is your county’s emergency management department. In Forsyth County, emergency and weather alerts can be found at cityofws.org. Determine your evacuation route or your community’s procedure for evacuating people who do not have private transportation to shelter or out of the danger zone. If you are receiving care at home, talk to your care manager about their emergency plan. If you live in a senior community, familiarize yourself with their emergency plans.

Then talk with family and friends about your plan and discuss options, especially if you need transportation to a safe location. Let them know your needs and ask them if they would be willing to help you. Share your plan for every eventuality. Designate one or two primary contacts to coordinate information with the rest of your circle of support. Keep a written list of your main contacts with you. Talking with your support team will help you determine a plan that’s right for you, and each will better understand how they can help you.

Another essential part of hurricane preparedness is having an emergency kit with the supplies needed to stay safe. The American Red Cross recommends packing two separate kits. The first, a “stay at home” kit includes at least two weeks worth of non-perishable food and water for each person in the house, a rechargeable battery-operated radio or crank charger with a USB port, a cell phone and charger, flashlight with extra batteries, first aid kit, toilet paper, wet wipes, blanket, pet supplies and cleaning supplies.

The second kit is an evacuation kit, which is considered a “3-day bag” of supplies you would need if you had to leave your home. Like packing for a weekend, pack a set of clothes, cash, photocopies of important papers and IDs, prescription medications, and specialty pet supplies. Remember to include protective items such as hand sanitizer, face coverings, soap, and sanitizers. If you own a car, gather emergency items for your vehicle, including jumper cables, flashlight, maps, first aid kit, emergency flares, and bottled water . Many of these items may already be in your home. Take the time to see that they are in working order.

Finally, stay informed. Relief organizations like the Red Cross can open shelters if many people are affected or if the emergency is expected to last several days. Go to a shelter if your area is without electricity, floodwaters are rising, your home is badly damaged, or you are being directed by authorities. Keep your key contacts aware of your location.

Once the storm has passed, let your contacts know that you are safe. If you have lost power, unplug your electronics and major appliances to avoid damage from power surges when power is restored. Keep refrigerator and freezer doors closed as much as possible. When the cleanup begins, beware of high-pressure sales, unsolicited requests for financial information, and services provided without a contract.
