Details regarding the latest fatality were not available.In total, the Pasadena Public Health Department has recorded 11,100 novel coronavirus infections and 335 deaths.Over the prior week, the city had documented an average of 8.3 new infections daily, according to city records.Huntington Hospital reported treating 17 COVID-19 patients on Wednesday, with five of them being cared for in an intensive care unit.PPHD officials continued making visits to businesses to ensure compliance with COVID-19 protocols, Derderian said.With the Pasadena Unified School District preparing to welcome students in pre-kindergarten through fifth grade back to in-class instruction next month, Derderian said health officials were also working closely with the district to support its efforts.At the state level, authorities on Wednesday announced 1,955 new infections and 254 deaths, raising the statewide totals to 3,551,056 known infections and 56,850 fatalities.The state’s average positivity rate over the prior week crept up to 1.9%, according to the California Department of Public Health.

A person who has been overtaken by despair, if even for a moment, goes to the river and the rescue unit is scrambled.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up But if someone is in trouble, either by accident or design, the Limerick unit is one of the best prepared to get out there and help.The team is equipped and trained to the same standard as the professional coastguard service.They are on-call 24-7 and, when an emergency arises, they can be fully operational in under two minutes.There is a slipway just yards from the base which gives them instant access to the water and they have now put a boat on the Abbey River to deal with calls that end of the water.“We’re unique in that we know the river so well. An operation is a risk but it is a calculated risk,” explained rescue diver and coxswain John Broderick.Most of the calls are of sightings of people entering the water between Shannon Bridge and Sarsfield Bridge and by far the majority of emergencies happen between two and three am, “when the clubs empty out”, said dive supervisor Jimmy Connors.Once a call comes in, the first three people to reach the base – or the crew staying overnight in the station on-shift – will get a boat in the water, getting information as they go and beginning the search at the point where the person was last seen.The next person in will take over communications co-ordination and they are followed by another team that includes a swift water rescue swimmer and dive team.“The dive team goes in immediately if a person is not on the surface. If they have gone under, the best chance we have of recovery is if we find them quickly. We know the flow of the river. We go above the entry point and we search all the way down to where we know a person may go,” explained jimmy.If the person is not found straight away, then begins a highly professional operation which involves divers swimming in formation, roped together at arms length wearing special diving equipment.At the bottom of the river, visibility can be so low that the team can barely see in front of them. They are using their hands to sweep and feel for a body which may stuck in the deep, sticky mud at the bottom.They literally feel their way to finding a body which has often been in the water for a time.If a body is not recovered, searching may be scaled back “but we don’t give up. There are very few that we’ve never got. The longest time for a recovery was fifteen months,’ said Jimmy.All of the volunteers have been extensively trained but ‘rookie’ volunteers are not sent on expensive training courses immediately. First they learn everything there is to know about handling the boats.“They’re on probation for twelve months. We’ll see what commitment they give and watch their behaviour. But it’s only on an actual recovery that we know and they know if they are suited. We say you’re not a volunteer until your first recovery,” said Jimmy.On of the things the team is anxious to get across is their gratitude to the public and to others who support them.“We’re all volunteers so when we’re out there, rattling a bucket, ever cent that’s donated is ploughed back into the service. We couldn’t do what we do without the support we get,” said PRO Peter Hogan.“Nor could we do this without the support of our families. We are away so much and our families are putting up with that,” said John.But with all of the tragedy that goes with taking someone who has drowned out of the river, the team have many causes to celebrate.The volunteers take heart when they have a recovery that those who loved that person can have closure.“The buzz you get from a rescue is amazing,” said John.They team is clearly 100 per cent involved in what they do, regardless of the huge demands it makes on their time.“It’s in our blood,” said Jimmy.

Nurses are demanding pay rises funded by the billions of pounds the Government has earmarked for NHS modernisation.The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) hinted at strike action if some of the Budget cash was not used to increase pay.Beverly Malone, general secretary of the RCN, said she wanted to see a bumper investment in nursing and that money was needed most.Malone said last year’s pay increase was inadequate, as the 3.9 per cent hike only improved the typical nurse’s salary by around £9 per week. She said retention rather than recruitment was the key to NHS success, but money was essential to achieving improvements in both.Her calls come on top of negotiations for flexible working and contracts. The money from the Budget will raise NHS spending by £40bn in the next six years and it is anticipated that spending for this year will be £5bn up on last year.weblink www.rcn.org.uk Comments are closed.

Allianz France has launched a €13bn “fonds de retraite professionelle supplémentaire (FRPS), a new type of financing vehicle that some French insurance-based pension providers have been setting up.Regulatory approval for the creation of the vehicle, which Allianz France has named Allianz Retraite, was granted last week, according to a statement.Now housing the retirement business previously assigned to Allianz France, it has €13bn in assets covering 650,000 individuals and 20,000 companies.A key feature of the FRPS vehicles is that they are not subject to Solvency II requirements. “Allianz France has chosen to transfer all its retirement activities to Allianz Retraite, which will be able to invest over the long term in line with the investment horizon of policyholders,” said Sylvain Coriat, member of the insurer’s executive committee of Allianz France.“Freed from the short-term constraints of Solvency II regulations, this entity will be able to invest sustainably in equities, infrastructures and support for the national economy, thanks to a solid solvency which will exceed four times the regulatory margin.”The creation of the FRPS comes after the insurer earlier this year launched two new defined contribution retirement savings solutions, one for individuals and one for employers, under the Plan d’Epargne pour la Retraite (PER) wrapper introduced by the PACTE reform.“As a long-term player, Allianz France is pleased that the PACTE law has given new impetus to group retirement savings products,” said Jacques Richier, chair and CEO of Allianz France.“The time was therefore ideal to create our FRPS. It will allow Allianz France to support employees and the liberal professions* in preparing for their retirement.”Aviva, Malakoff-Médéric and Sacra are other among five other providers that have set up FRPS vehicles and as far as IPE is aware Allianz’s is the largest by assets.*Liberal professions refers to a wide-ranging regulated category of self-employed occupations in France.Looking for IPE’s latest magazine?

Freedom of expression and public health should be tightly balanced in this time of the pandemic, he added. President Rodrigo Duterte is to physically deliver his fifth SONA at the Batasang Pambansa in Quezon City on Monday, July 27. “PRO-6 is in full alert status and uniformed personnel will be deployed in all places of convergence to maintain orderliness and to ensure that health protocols are being observed,” Gorero said. Western Visayas remains under “medium risk” modified general community quarantine until the end of the month. ILOILO City – Instead of gathering to hold protest actions, the Police Regional Office (PRO) 6 urged protesters to air their grievances for President Rodrigo Duterte’s fifth State of the Nation Address (SONA) online. Gorero said that PRO-6 will activate task group “SONA 2020” in coordination with other concerned government agencies. Police Colonel Gilbert Gorero, PRO-6 spokesperson, made the appeal as he noted the existing guidelines of the government’s coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) task force limiting mass gatherings amid the pandemic.

Hamlin is the first driver to win back-to-back Daytona 500s since Sterling Marlin in 1994 and ’95. Hamlin joined six Hall of Fame drivers as winners of three or more Daytona 500s. This victory comes after just the second rain postponement in 62 years, a pair of red flag stoppages and two overtimes.Hamlin’s celebration quickly became muted as drivers awaited an update on Newman’s condition following a crash at the end. Two hours after the race, NASCAR read a statement from Roush Fenway Racing that said Newman is in “serious condition, but doctors have indicated his injuries are not life threatening.”Newman had surged into the lead on the final lap when Ryan Blaney’s bumper caught the back of his Ford and sent Newman hard right into the wall. His car flipped, rolled and was hit on the driver’s side by Corey LaJoie’s car before finally skidding across the finish line in flames.It took several minutes for his car to be rolled back onto its wheels. The 2008 Daytona 500 winner was placed in a waiting ambulance and taken directly to a hospital, and the damage to his Mustang was extensive. It appeared the entire roll cage designed to protect his head had caved.Newman’s accident comes 19 years after Dale Earnhardt was killed on the last lap of the 2001 Daytona 500. Earnhardt was the last driver killed in a NASCAR Cup Series race.
