first_imgWith his political path narrowing, President Trump turned to the courts and procedural maneuvers on Wednesday in a last-ditch effort to stave off defeat in the handful of states that will decide the outcome of the bitterly fought election.The president’s campaign intervened at the Supreme Court in a case challenging Pennsylvania’s plan to count ballots received for up to three days after Election Day. The campaign said it would also file suit in Michigan to halt the counting there while it pursues its demands for better access for the observers it sent to monitor elections boards for signs of malfeasance in tallying ballots, modeled on a similar suit it was pursuing in Nevada.- Advertisement – With Mr. Biden in a strong position and the counting trending in his favor, the chances of the outcome being determined in court ebbed on Wednesday. But the day nonetheless had some echoes of the 2000 recount in Florida in which Al Gore unsuccessfully challenged an outcome that gave George W. Bush the presidency. – Advertisement – And in many cases, it was unclear its moves would gain enough votes to make up the gaps Mr. Biden appeared to be building, which extended into the thousands as opposed to the hundreds that separated Mr. Bush and Mr. Gore in Florida 20 years ago.“If the margin is more than 1,000 votes, it’s really uphill,” said Benjamin L. Ginsberg, a longtime Republican election lawyer. “If it’s within 10,000 votes, that’s an almost an unscalable mountain.”The Trump campaign identified Nevada, where Mr. Biden’s margin appeared relatively slim as of late Wednesday, as another vote-counting battleground. The state allows any losing candidate to request a recount.While there is no automatic trigger in Wisconsin for a recount, any losing candidate can force one if the race stays within one percentage point. With roughly 3.2 million ballots cast in the state, that means any margin within about 32,000 could force a recount. On Wednesday, Mr. Biden had been declared the winner in Wisconsin with a roughly 21,000-vote margin.But one prominent Republican in the state, former Gov. Scott Walker, seemed to be skeptical that the recount would bring about a different outcome for Mr. Trump.“After recount in 2011 race for WI Supreme Court, there was a swing of 300 votes,” Mr. Walker wrote on Twitter. A 2016 recount triggered by a request from Jill Stein of the Green Party found only 131 votes. “As I said, 20,000 is a high hurdle,” he wrote. A federal judge appeared to meet the Republican claims in a related lawsuit — affecting roughly 93 provisional ballots in Montgomery County outside of Philadelphia — with skepticism.“Wasn’t the legislative intent of the statute that we’re talking about was to enfranchise, not disenfranchise voters?” Judge Timothy J. Savage, an appointee of former President George W. Bush, asked the Republican counsel, Thomas Breth. The judge later chided Mr. Breth for referring to “this disenfranchisement game.” Early on Wednesday morning, Mr. Trump had appeared before supporters and reporters at the White House to say, “We’ll be going to the U.S. Supreme Court, we want all voting to stop,” a statement that drew bipartisan criticism.His campaign team did go to the Supreme Court on Wednesday to file a motion to take over perhaps the highest-profile of the elections cases. In that dispute, Pennsylvania Republicans had sought to block state officials from moving forward with their plan to count all mail ballots postmarked on or before Nov. 3 for three days after Election Day. The state’s legal deadline for the receipt of ballots is ordinarily 8 p.m. on Election Day.Republicans unsuccessfully sought to appeal their case against the deadline extension to the Supreme Court twice, but on the second occasion three justices — Samuel A. Alito Jr., Bret M. Kavanaugh and Clarence Thomas — indicated they would be open to reconsidering their arguments during the post-Election Day period, when their newest colleague, Justice Amy Coney Barrett, would be settled into her role on the court. On Wednesday evening, Mr. Trump’s team added Georgia to its list of legal targets, seeking a pause in the counting there in the wake of allegations by a Republican poll observer that a small number of ineligible ballots might be counted in one location.In Wisconsin, which along with Michigan was called on Wednesday for his Democratic opponent, Joseph R. Biden Jr., the president’s campaign announced it would request a recount. The moves signaled Mr. Trump’s determination to make good on his longstanding threats to carry out an aggressive post-Election Day campaign to upend any result not in his favor and pursue his baseless allegations that the outcome was rigged.- Advertisement –center_img “If we count all legal ballots, the president wins,” the Trump campaign manager, Bill Stepien, said on a morning conference call with reporters.Mr. Stepien took a more aggressive posture later in the day, attempting with no basis to declare victory for Mr. Trump in Pennsylvania even as the vote-counting continued.The Trump campaign dispatched Rudolph W. Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer, and Eric Trump, one of his sons, to Philadelphia to ensure, as Mr. Stepien sought to portray it without any evidence, that “magical pallets” of mail ballots for Mr. Biden did not suddenly appear and that “this margin of victory that we are certain of is not stolen by the Democrats and stolen by Joe Biden.” Updated Nov. 4, 2020, 6:36 p.m. ET A state court rejected one lawsuit seeking more access to observe the counting of ballots.The Trump campaign lawsuits in Pennsylvania drew a stern rebuke from Gov. Tom Wolf, a Democrat, who called the legal machinations “simply wrong.”“These attempts to subvert the democratic process are simply disgraceful,” Mr. Wolf said during a news conference Wednesday evening. “We are going to fight every single attempt to disenfranchise voters.”In the entire legal effort the Trump campaign appeared at times to be trying to walk up a down escalator.It found itself in an awkward position of seeking to halt counting in some states — where it wanted to limit Mr. Biden’s ability to build more comfortable margins — even as it sought recounts in others were it hoped to cut into Mr. Biden’s margins. In a scene that was reminiscent of the so-called Brooks Brothers Riot protest on behalf of Mr. Bush that temporarily halted counting in Miami-Dade that year, a crush of Trump supporters on Wednesday stormed a counting office in Detroit with shouts of “Stop the count.”But this year’s legal clashes were breaking out across several states, and in most cases, it was the Republicans who appeared to be battling from behind, a disadvantageous opening position, though one that Mr. Trump’s aides hoped would shift yet again as the counts continued to evolve.Throughout the day, Republicans pressed a claim that they were merely seeking to ensure that no votes weren’t counted that shouldn’t have been, rather than repeating the president’s early-morning claims that all counting should have stopped on Election Day when early and incomplete results showed him ahead in battleground states that will decide the Electoral College winner. The court could, conceivably, decide to take up the case, though that would be a rare move. And Republicans would need to gather more evidence to show that they were harmed by the deadline extension before filing a new motion to engage the court.Democrats portrayed the Republican efforts as part of a desperate bid to reverse a trajectory that was threatening their hold on the White House.“We’re winning the election,” Bob Bauer, a senior Biden campaign adviser, said in a call with reporters on Wednesday, “and we’re going to protect the election.”He said that for the Biden campaign and the Democratic Party, that meant meeting court challenges from Mr. Trump and the Republicans wherever they might arise. The national party did so late Wednesday in another case the president’s campaign was bringing in Pennsylvania seeking to reject votes from citizens who were given opportunities to fix problems that had caused their mail-in ballots to be rejected. But it was not clear how much effect any of his efforts would have. In Georgia, the suit is about 53 ballots, and another case in Pennsylvania is about fewer than 100.The suits appeared intended at least in part to give some legal weight to a fight that Mr. Trump has largely carried out on Twitter and amplified during an overnight appearance at the White House, where he falsely claimed to have won and asserted with no evidence that his opponents were trying to steal the election.As the legal team began staking its ground, campaign surrogates, aides and the president himself sought to create a public relations drumbeat to promote that theme. Mr. Trump had long indicated he would push that argument in the widely expected event that early leads for him in Election Day counts withered as a record of number of mail ballots — used disproportionately by Democrats this year — tipped the balance toward Mr. Biden.- Advertisement –last_img read more

first_imgThe food banks and the Greater Manchester Citizens have written to club executives asking them to adopt the real living wage for all staff.According to the Living Wage Foundation, only five Premier League clubs – Everton, Liverpool, West Ham, Chelsea and Crystal Palace – currently pay staff the real living wage.Conor McGurran, Greater Manchester Citizens co-chair, said: “Marcus Rashford MBE has united a city of reds and blues in support of his excellent campaigning against child poverty. However, his club and their near-neighbours Manchester City are not accredited with the Living Wage Foundation.The chair of the city’s central food bank, Matt Stallard, points out that many of the people who access the service are in work, but earn less than the living wage.The living wage is currently £9.30 an hour across the UK except in London, where it is £10.75. The rate is set to change next week as part of Living Wage week.- Advertisement – Kick off 4:30pm Sky Sports’ Martin Tyler says Marcus Rashford’s campaigning for free meals for school children is proof of how footballers can use their power in the right way. “Whilst both Manchester City and Manchester United undertake a great deal of valuable work within our communities, there is one simple step that both clubs could take to reduce child poverty within our city.“It’s proven that the real Living Wage lifts families out of poverty – that’s why Greater Manchester Citizens is calling on our two successful and wealthy football clubs to become Living Wage accredited.” Manchester United's Marcus Rashford celebrates scoring his side's second goal against RB Leipzig– Advertisement –center_img Sunday 8th November 4:00pm Both United and City continued to pay staff in full during the first national lockdown rather than use the Government-backed furlough scheme.United, along with the club’s foundation and the FareShare charity, distributed 5,000 meals to children eligible to free school meals during the October half-term.United said: “Given the size of the club and with such a varied workforce across a number of specialist areas, staff salaries do differ, depending on their remit.“However, all permanent and temporary employees, whether engaged on a full or part-time basis, are paid the national living wage.”The national living wage for over 25s is £8.72 an hour according to the Living Wage Foundation website. The national minimum wage is £8.20 an hour and applies to anyone aged between 21-24.Manchester City have also been approached for comment. Manchester food banks have called on the city’s Premier League clubs to paytheir staff the real living wage.Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has drawn widespread praise for his role in highlighting the issue of child food poverty, which has been exacerbated by the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic.- Advertisement – 0:31 – Advertisement –last_img read more

first_imgThe ballots in the extra boxes were not really newly discovered, Mr. Sánchez claimed, but had been tagged with some kind of problem during the initial count and were set aside to be reconciled during the tally certification process. In the newly discovered boxes, many uncounted ballots from different precincts were found mixed together “in the wrong place, badly organized,” Mr. Rosado said. But he stressed that none of them had left the elections vault, and their discovery underscored the transparency of the process.It was unclear how many votes the boxes contained, he said at a news conference on Tuesday.- Advertisement – Critics blamed the ruling pro-statehood party, which this year changed the electoral law in fundamental ways that gave Mr. Rosado’s party more control over elections. The New Progressive Party’s representative on the elections council, Héctor J. Sánchez, insisted that the government’s party wanted every last vote counted.All of the opposition parties had agreed on Saturday to stop counting votes, he argued, despite lingering questions about ballots in some races that appeared to be missing.In Puerto Rico, each race is voted on a different ballot, and there were discrepancies in the number of votes cast in some areas.- Advertisement – “There are cases that have three ballots, there are cases that have 500,” he said. On Wednesday morning, he told WKAQ-580 AM radio that it could be between 3,000 and 4,000 votes.“Trust in the transparency of the process,” Mr. Rosado said. “Every vote will be counted.”“Asking that of the country is absurd,” Carmen Yulín Cruz, the outgoing mayor of San Juan, tweeted in response.- Advertisement – – Advertisement –last_img read more

first_imgPresident-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr’s administration is planning to undo the legacy of the Trump administration’s education policies by drastically increasing resources for public schools, expanding its civil rights advocacy for marginalized students and reasserting the department’s leadership in policymaking.It is in stark contrast to the Trump-era policies led by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, a lifelong booster of private schools and longtime opponent of the teachers’ unions, set out to reduce the Education Department’s footprint by proposing cuts to public school funding and narrowing the department’s enforcement role of federal education laws and civil rights.- Advertisement – Mr. Biden, whose wife, Jill Biden, is a community college professor and member of the National Education Association, has promised to appoint a secretary with teaching experience and a deep knowledge of the challenges schools face and the students they serve.- Advertisement – And on the most pressing issue facing education — reopening schools during the pandemic — the incoming Biden administration has signaled an about-face, planning a much more cautious approach.The Trump administration has demanded that schools reopen, despite severe budget constraints and confusing public health guidelines, while the Education Department has all but absolved itself of tracking the virus’s impact and offering solutions. The Biden campaign has promised deep federal involvement to help schools secure more relief funding and navigate the effects of the pandemic, which has devastated the academic trajectory of the most vulnerable students. – Advertisement – The Biden administration plans to restore Obama-era civil rights guidance — rescinded by Ms. DeVos — that offered transgender students the right to choose school bathrooms that correspond with their gender identity, that addressed the disproportionate disciplining of Black students and that pressed for diversity in colleges and K-12 classrooms. The restoration of those guidance documents can be done immediately because they were not put through the regulatory process or enacted into law.Undoing what is arguably Ms. DeVos’s most formidable accomplishment — how federally funded schools should investigate cases of sexual assault — could be tougher. The incoming administration has vowed to dismantle those rules. As vice president, Mr. Biden had personally helped introduce the Obama-era guidelines on campus sexual misconduct that Ms. DeVos reversed through formal and protracted rule-making.last_img read more

first_imgJun 7, 2004 (CIDRAP News) – The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a new and faster blood test to help confirm a diagnosis of anthrax infection, federal health officials announced today.The Anthrax Quick ELISA test can identify antibodies to Bacillus anthracis in less than an hour, compared with about 4 hours for previous tests, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The test was developed by Immunetics, Inc., Boston, with funding from the CDC.”Before FDA approval of the new test, very few laboratories other than the CDC and the US Army had the ability to test blood for antibodies to anthrax,” the CDC announcement said. “The new test will be available shortly for use in state and private laboratories.”Immunetics researchers evaluated the blood test by using it on about 35 samples the CDC supplied from anthrax patients, including some of the 22 people who became ill in the letter-borne anthrax attacks in 2001, according to Patty Wilkins, PhD, a research microbiologist in the CDC’s Meningitis and Special Pathogens Branch.”The test was shown to detect 100% of the anthrax patients tested in clinical trials, with less than a 1% chance of false positive results,” Immunetics officials said in a news release. The test identified antibodies from people with either inhalational or cutaneous anthrax, and it also detected anthrax-specific antibodies in various animals used as models for human infection, the company said.Dr. Andrew Levin, president and CEO of Immunetics, said the test detects antibodies to protective antigen, one of the three proteins that make up the toxin produced by B anthracis.Levin told CIDRAP News the CDC has spent a little over a million dollars on development of the test. Wilkins said the original contract was for about $750,000, and the CDC later provided some additional funds. The contract was awarded following the 2001 anthrax attacks.Under the contract, the CDC will buy some of the test kits for $5 each to use in its own research, Wilkins said. In addition, it is expected that laboratories in the Laboratory Response Network will be able to buy the test directly from the company, she said. “This is in the process of being negotiated,” she said.Levin said the company hasn’t yet determined the commercial price of the test. Any clinical or public health laboratory can use the test without special equipment or training, the Immunetics statement said.The company said it worked closely with the CDC in developing the test, which is based on the company’s proprietary assay technology. “The fact that we were able to move so quickly in development and validation of the test demonstrates how productive such a collaboration between government and industry can be, and we consider the FDA approval a major success for both sides,” Levin stated in the news release.See also:CDC news releasehttp://www.cdc.gov/media/pressrel/r040607.htmlast_img read more

The outbreak, which surfaced in mid-April, involves an uncommon strain, Salmonella enterica serotype Agona. The same strain caused an outbreak a decade ago that was linked to toasted oat cereals produced at the company’s Northfield, Minn., plant. In the CDC’s most recent update, the number of cases is seven more than listed in the initial report. The number of states affected by the outbreak grew by two; most are in the Northeast and Midwest. The CDC said several state health departments, along with the US Food and Drug Administration, are working to identify more cases and determine what factors led to the outbreak. However, in an earlier statement, the company said it had determined the cause of the contamination and corrected the problem. It did not reveal any details about the source.
