Two former Pittsburgh Pirates players have been claimed off waivers in the past 24 hours as they prepare to embark on the next journey in their baseball careers

It’s waiver request season in all of baseball. On Friday, two former Pittsburgh Pirates payers went mad as they were claimed for waivers. With that, the next journey in their baseball career begins.

Junior Fernández was claimed off waivers by the Pittsburgh Pirates in September. This came after he was nominated for an assignment by the St. Louis Cardinals. Despite possessing two-plus seam power, Fernández has always struggled with control, which led him to struggle to find traction at the majors.

Earlier this week, Fernández was slated for assignment by the Pirates. This was done as the team needed to make room on its 40-man roster for Rule 5 protected draft prospects. Fernández pitched just 3.1 innings as a pirate, allowing one hit, in marching four and retiring two.

On Friday, Fernández was claimed off waivers by the New York Yankees. The last time a pirate reliever with more tricks but struggling to control went to the Yankees, it was Clay Holmes who became one of baseball’s best relief pitchers. For the sake of Twitter Pirates, let’s hope this doesn’t happen again.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Third time was definitely not the charm for the start of the Kenny Payne era of Louisville’s men’s basketball program.

After being thwarted by Bellarmine and Wright State to open the 2022-23 season, the Cardinals followed up those two games with an equally stunning loss to Appalachian State, with another comeback attempt that failed heartbreakingly.

Trailing 57-45 with just under seven minutes left, the Cardinals launched a 15-4 run fueled almost exclusively by El Ellis to make it a one-point game with 24 seconds left. After the Mountaineers missed the front of a one-on-one with Mike James securing the rebound, it gave the Cardinals 11 seconds for one final down.

THE concept of trade-related intellectual property rights, or TRIPS, was the exclusive domain of legal, business and healthcare experts until Covid-19 hit the world and the acronym suddenly became mainstream. The global discussion on TRIPS and its waiver amid the escalating pandemic was sparked by India and South Africa tabling a proposal at the WTO, asking for a waiver from the protection imposed by TRIPS on patents, treatments and technologies in October 2020. was to stimulate the accelerated production and supply of Covid treatments and vaccines to countries in the South.

US President Joe Biden threw his weight behind the proposal soon after his inauguration. Previously, the proposal had been endorsed by 65 developing countries as co-sponsors and another 100 as supporters. The proposal enjoyed the support of hundreds of key NGOs, INGOs, former heads of state and public intellectuals. But despite such support for the immediate lifting of TRIPS protections amid a devastating pandemic, the WTO has taken more than 20 months to reach a new agreement that has been seen as too little, too late.

The significantly watered down version of the deal, in its current form, owes much to the EU, some Western countries and the pharmaceutical industry who opposed the full waiver from the outset. The powerful anti-waiver lobby managed to prolong the discussion even in the midst of a serious global health emergency that required urgent action. After much back and forth, an agreement was reached in June 2022 at the 12th ministerial meeting of the WTO.

The deal fell far short of expectations of countries in the South who seemed to have bowed to the accumulated power of the EU and other Western countries. The deal was endorsed by the Global South despite last-minute pleas from international organizations and activists not to accept the deal in the form in which it was finally approved. The deal, as it stands today, only waives part of the TRIPS-related protection specifically for the Covid vaccine and that too for a limited period. This is not the result that supporters were hoping for.

The agreement waives only part of the protection associated with TRIPS.

Although governments have hailed it as some sort of victory, campaign and advocacy groups have expressed serious reservations about the scope of the deal, the vacuity of the claimed victory and its limited long-term impact. on affordability, production and supply of vital commodities. treatments and vaccines in future pandemics.

Medicines Law & Policy, a specialist research group, called the outcome of the agreement a limited waiver and raised the question of whether it deserved to be called one within the meaning of the full waiver contained in the original proposal. . South Centre, a representative body for countries in the South, expressed a similar view that the agreement is narrow in scope and limited in applicability.

Moreover, the new agreement leaves aside aspirations to waive the protection of trade secrets, copyrights and industrial designs that are essential for affordable access to medicines and treatments worldwide. Third World Network sees the new agreement offering very little that differs from the exemptions already enshrined in previous WTO agreements. The only novelty of the agreement is a further simplification of notification requirements.

Médecins Sans Frontières described the new agreement as bypassing the key issue of pharmaceutical monopolies or easy pathways to affordable access to life-saving medical technologies and treatments. The new agreement in its current wording will have potentially negative effects on the future global health crisis.

More importantly, at the request of the United States, China was not allowed to benefit from the waiver due to specific language used in the agreement. Health advocates have expressed concern over the exclusion of an increasingly important global health player in vaccine production from the new deal. More worryingly, the new agreement prohibits the re-export of vaccines except for humanitarian purposes. This seems to further limit the scope of the original proposal.

More importantly, the new agreement postpones discussions on Covid-related treatments and technologies to a six-month timeline. As with the new agreement, it is unlikely that this deadline will be met given the slow functioning of the WTO. Unless a broader waiver of the TRIPS Agreement is agreed, as envisioned in the original October 2020 proposal, much of humanity will remain without affordable vaccines, treatments and diagnostics. Now that the issue of the TRIPS waiver has forced itself into the consciousness of the world, the campaign and concerted efforts must continue to achieve the desired goal of full waiver for future pandemics.

School District’s Emergency Purchase Waiver Extended | News, Sports, Jobs https://ardud.ro/school-districts-emergency-purchase-waiver-extended-news-sports-jobs/ Thu, 10 Nov 2022 01:30:00 +0000 https://ardud.ro/school-districts-emergency-purchase-waiver-extended-news-sports-jobs/ The Lee County School District has received an emergency purchase waiver extension through July 2023, which will allow it to continue with the current business model used to feed students in the district.

The Lee County School District has received an emergency purchase waiver extension through July 2023, which will allow it to continue with the current business model used to feed students in the district.

Food and Nutrition Services Manager Kandace Messenger said that from January to July 2022, the district worked closely with vendors and put in place a work plan that resulted in the district providing 7 .8 million meals in the second half and more than 200,000 meals last summer.

An emergency food supply waiver was put in place in October 2021 due to supply issues resulting from the COVID pandemic. Messenger said manufacturers were running out of raw material to meet demand from private and public industries, compounded by the fact that a former primary grocer supplier stopped serving the K-12 business, which changed the business model to bring groceries into the school.

“Food and Nutrition has requested an increase of $9 million to cover the anticipated cost of stocking and transporting grocers to schools,” she says. “In December 2021, with the help of Supply Services, we were able to secure a contract with Florida Freezer to store food and OC Trucking to deliver groceries to the kitchen to feed our students.”

The Food and Nutrition Service ended up spending $4.3 million, which was less than the planned $9 million. It was broken down by the increase of $2.8 million in the cost of food and $1.5 million in the cost of storage and distribution.

Expenditures from January to June 2022, which included lower expenditures with Sysco at $7.3 million, $515,512 for Florida Freezer, $950,097 for OC Trucking and $2.8 million for direct deliveries. The district expects small increases from Florida Freezer and OC Trucking.

At this time, Sysco has not given the district a timeline to begin the school-to-school delivery model.

She said Direct Deliverys deliver items such as crackers, cereals and breakfast items, which are the cereal components needed to prepare the student meal.

“Drop-shipments continue to occur when we are notified that our main grocer is unable to obtain items for us, causing us to contact manufacturers to see what they have. Most of the time, deliveries from manufacturers can take place within a few weeks. The lead grocer needs 60 days to get the product to their facility, and then it takes another two weeks to get the item to the schools for our students,” Messenger said.

Manufacturers have also streamlined their product line, offering fewer choices to offset rising food costs.

“To supplement the cost of food, Food and Nutrition Services used Department of Defense products and took advantage of USDA commodity processing and some brown box items,” she says.

The total USDA rights allocated for this year are just over $4.1 million.

The process begins with placing a large grocery order for Sysco to deliver. Messenger said at this time that they are looking at the first week of December for these races to be in schools.

“Then he walks into Florida Frieza. They store it for us. We place individual orders with them, we send them a collection ticket. They select and prep it with OC Trucking and tag it for each school,” she says. “They put in routes that we approved. They pick it up in the morning and deliver it to the schools.

As for putting something new on the menu, Messenger said they had to put a forecast, which would result in an arrival 60 days later. This, she says, is why the repetition occurs on school menus.

BALLING MOVEMENT: Add more than 12 team leagues

REGISTERED IN: 29% of leagues

ANALYSIS: What if we were all wrong and the Utah Jazz traded Mitchell on purpose to bolster the roster on all fronts and make a play-in/postseason run? Uh!? I don’t know about that, but I do know a little thing: Kelly Olynyk is a top 70 fantasy player entering Week 4 and with 10 games on the books through Saturday.

Just for context, the Jazz currently have five top 75 fantasy players from the start of the season. You read correctly. The math doesn’t lie either. 75 players divided by 30 teams in the NBA gives 2.5 players per team. Well, Utah has twice those. LOL.

Lauri Markkanen (top-10) and Jordan Clarkson (top-35) lead the way in total FP and lineup, but Olynyk is pretty close with much more availability. The big man takes care of the paint and the C with Jarred Vanderbilt taking on PF duties and this has been the case for all 10 games played so you can rest assured the roles will remain the same at least until ‘to/if Jazz decides to move some coins around in trades.

Olynyk averages 12+ PPG, 4+ RPG, 3+ APG and 1+ SPG. It’s funny that he and Vanderbilt have so many similar stats that if you can’t find one in your league’s WW, you can most likely find the other and get roughly the same production. What Olynyk gives you on three-point numbers (1.9 3PM a pop) he takes on the boards; what Vanderbilt adds in the glass (8.2 RPG) it takes long range shooting (0.6 3PM).

With Olynyk and Vanderbilt starting every game and getting very similar stats, there’s no real risk in taking a slice of either. Production per minute favors young Vando (1.10 FP/min) slightly over Olynyk (0.96), but both are posting above-average numbers in league terms. Impossible to be wrong in any case.

COLUMBIA, Missouri (KMIZ.)

The man accused of rape and attempted murder in 1984 in northeastern Colombia has decided not to waive the extradition.

James Wilson, 59, of Mooresville, North Carolina, was arrested after DNA linked him to the crime.

The North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation seized some of his trash and found a disposable razor with hair in the blades. The razor and other items were sent to the Columbia Police Department. The razor was then sent for DNA analysis, where it then matched the profile of the rape kit, according to a probable cause statement.

Wilson was charged with first-degree rape and assault last week.

Roger Johnson – the prosecutor in the case – detailed Wednesday what will happen next after Wilson decides not to waive the extradition.

“The other state’s attorney must file a fugitive’s complaint, which is just a charge that allows them to be detained out of state on warrant in Missouri,” Johnsons said. “Then the person is brought before a judge. They are entitled to a lawyer at that time and they decide whether or not they want extradition.”

Had Wilson waived his extradition, he would have been sent to Boone County, a process that could have taken nearly two weeks, according to Johnson.

“The process because if someone doesn’t waive, then the judge can continue the case all at once for 30 days and then one more time for 60 days,” Johnson said. “And so, it is my understanding that he has not given up, and the case is being reset for the first extradition hearing in 30 days.”

Johnson said that sometimes people decide not to waive extradition because they want to dispute the charge or they’re in a position where they don’t feel like agreeing to anything. .

Wilson is currently being held in Iredell County Jail in North Carolina on $1 million bond.

ABC17 has tried to contact Wilson’s attorney in North Carolina, but they have yet to respond.

It was a mostly injury-free Sunday for top contributors to fantasy football, and while that’s a welcome relief, it doesn’t help Week 9’s best fantasy waiver son pick-ups and free agent additions . In fact, this week‘s original waiver article might sound like a rerun. We tout RBs as Latave Murray, Kenyan drakeand Caleb Huntleyall of which have already been featured in this article in recent weeks, as well as the newcomer Ronnie Riverswho surprised as the Rams’ backfield leader.

Our complete list of free agents also features some rising pass-catchers that we’ve already highlighted (TE Greg DulcichWR Rondale Moore), in addition to several guys you may have forgotten about because they’re either goodbye or IR (Isaiah Pacheco, Kyren Williams, Treylon Burk, josh palm tree). Mostly, though, we’ve packed this week’s waiver recommendations with potential streamers at QB, WR, TE, and D/ST. With six teams (Giants, Cowboys, Steelers, Browns, 49ers and Broncos) bidding goodbye next week, more than a few fantasy owners will be looking for replacements. Streamer suggestions are grouped by position and can be found at the end of the list.

With the possible exception of Rivers, all of the RBs mentioned above are worth waiver claims in 10- or 12-team leagues, but it’s hard to say if they’re worth high claims. None are among the league winners, but all have value, especially as we enter difficult weeks. It really boils down to how badly you need an RB, both short and long term. Murray is probably the “safest” bet for future value, but Williams and Pacheco have higher caps.

If you’re hurting at TE, Dulcich also deserves a waiver request, but he’s losing some shine due to next week’s furlough. Burks and Palmer also have a lot of appeal in the 12-team leagues, especially with favorable matchups in Week 9, but generally speaking you shouldn’t use a waiver request on a streamer unless you don’t really get desperate for position (and desperate for rankings).

ISLAMABAD: Government rejected IT industry’s request to waive ‘negligible’ tax on its services to prop up sector’s failing exports, but agreed to provide maximum facilitation, including exemption from auditing by tax authorities.

Chairing a meeting of the IT sector on Sunday, Finance Minister Ishaq Dar observed that the effective tax rate on the sector was around 0.25%, which was “peanuts”. He said people should develop the habit of paying taxes on their income instead of claiming exemptions. A tax of 2.5 rupees on exports of 1,000 rupees is “nothing”, Mr Dar said.

However, he promised that IT professionals exporting their services would not receive tax notices from the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) and that their tax returns would not be subject to audit in order to minimize their revenue costs.

Moreover, he also ordered the FBR to set up a unit where dedicated agents act as a one-stop-shop and handle IT sector refund and tax credit cases to reduce hassles.

Call the 0.25 pc levy “peanuts”; asks people to develop the habit of paying taxes

Finance Minister Dar is the Chairman of the Prime Minister’s Task Force on Information Technology and Telecommunications. The task force meeting was also attended by IT Minister Syed Aminul Haque, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister (SAPM) for Youth Affairs Shaza Fatima Khawaja, SAPM for Finance Tariq Bajwa, State Bank Governor Jameel Ahmed, Finance Secretary Hamid Yaqoob Shaikh, IT Secretary Mohsin Mushtaq and the Chairman of FBR and Pakistan Telecommunication Authority.

Informed sources said that the IT Ministry discussed with the task force a host of challenges crippling the software export industry.

It was explained that when the tax exemption in the IT sector expired, the PML-N government under former Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi replaced the tax exemption with 0.25pc full tax and final. This could not be implemented due to traditional challenges with tax authorities and tax notices began to be sent to high profile companies like S&P Global.

In addition to this, the government, in the 2021-2022 budget, reduced the withholding tax on income for the sector from 12% to 10% with the promise that it would be reduced to 8% in the next financial year. As additional spectrum sales and other expansions, the RBF was able through the December 2021 mini-budget to instead raise the withholding tax on income to 15% on the assumption that the International Monetary Fund wanted this tax increases instead of a promised sliding scale.

The IT sector and the ministry had agitated that this had crippled the sector, leading to a drop in exports of a few million dollars in the first months of this financial year compared to the period of the previous year.

Conversely, the Ministry of IT advocated that an export reward system be offered to software and IT services exports at a rate of at least 5% as they were face value professionals but would be encouraged to declare their income for remuneration.

The department told the task force that not only were IT professionals dissatisfied with RBF’s tactics, but that the implementation of a policy to allow 35% of revenue to be used export for marketing purposes had not entered into force.

He explained that unlike manufactured goods which can be tracked due to their physical exports, IT export earnings could be easily parked overseas through established outlets in Singapore, Dubai and other countries. other destinations in the Middle East. In such a situation, the government may also face difficulties in rolling out the 5G telecom spectrum licenses.

From November, Korea will fully resume its visa waiver program, having suspended it in early 2020 to prevent the spread of Covid-19.


The visa-free system allows entry into the country for tourism, visiting relatives, field visits, inspections and short-term business without a visa.


Korea has temporarily suspended visa-free entry from April 13, 2020 for 91 countries that have banned the entry of Koreans in accordance with the prevention of the overseas influx of Covid-19.


While the visa waiver program had resumed for most countries, eight countries – Japan, Taiwan, Macao, Solomon Islands, Kiribati, Micronesia, Samoa and Tonga – had maintained the visa waiver suspension for Koreans. .


However, with Japan, Taiwan, Macao and five Pacific island countries recently resuming visa-free entry for Koreans, the government decided to allow visa-free entry for all eight countries from Nov. 1.


Japan has allowed Koreans to enter the country through the Visa Waiver Program since October 11 and Taiwan since late September. The five Pacific island countries have also reinstated visa-free entry for Korean nationals, allowing visa-free entry.


Meanwhile, Health and Welfare Minister Cho Kyoo-hong said he would consider enforcing mask-wearing requirements only in certain places, such as public transport and hospitals.


“The ministry will review cases overseas where mask-wearing is enforced in certain places such as medical institutions, public transportation and social welfare institutions and consider enforcing a similar measure in Korea,” Cho said. during a parliamentary audit of the National Health and Welfare Assembly. Committee Thursday.


Cho’s comment follows a remark by Representative Kim Mi-ae of the People Power Party during the parliamentary audit that the mask requirement should be selectively enforced.


Rep. Kim criticized the imposition of the mask mandate on all indoor facilities, saying the policy only favors the government and the public is very concerned about language and social development issues for infants and young children in reason for wearing face masks.


Cho agreed with Rep. Kim’s comments, but said the mask mandate was decided after hearing expert advice in consideration of a possible resurgence of the Covid-19 virus.


“The Ministry of Health and Welfare believes that the response to the latest viral wave of the Covid-19 pandemic is an example of successful quarantine while reducing the burden of daily life,” Cho added.


Mathematicians have given various forecasts of Covid-19 cases per day predicting the number of new cases for the next two weeks.


A team from the National Institute for Mathematical Science (NIMS) has predicted the lowest number of daily Covid-19 cases by predicting that the number of new confirmed Covid-19 cases per day will fall to 13,000 in two weeks.


The team concluded so after looking at the number of citizen movements aggregated from KT’s mobile communications location data and the cumulative number of confirmed cases by province from Oct. 5 to Wednesday.


In contrast, a team led by Professor Jeong Il-hyo from Pusan ​​National University’s mathematics department predicted that the number of confirmed cases would rise in two weeks.


The team said the number of new confirmed Covid-19 cases in Korea will rise to 28,268 from Oct. 26 to Nov. 1, after hovering around 25,693 from Wednesday to next Tuesday.


The research team made such predictions after considering that the average daily average number of local infections in the second week of October (October 12 to October 18) increased by 3,662 from the previous week.


On Thursday, Korea added 25,431 new Covid-19 infections, including 53 cases from overseas, bringing the total number of cases to 25,219,546, according to the KDCA.


The country also reported 23 more deaths from Covid-19, bringing the death toll to 28,922. The fatality rate stood at 0.11%. The number of critically ill patients stood at 239, six more than the previous day.


According to the KDCA, about 44.68 million out of 52 million Koreans have been fully vaccinated. Additionally, approximately 33.63 million people had received their first booster and 7.5 million had their second booster.
