Following the previous announcement regarding their use of facial recognition, ID.me CEO Blake Hall gave details that contradicted previous claims.

Despite privacy activists criticizing this, people should note three benefits it brings, including an advanced banking experience.

ID.me CEO admits use of facial recognition system

Last year, the Internal Revenue Service changed the way customers sign in and authenticate their identity for certain IRS online services through a mobile-friendly system that relies on trusted third parties and provides an improved user experience.

This new procedure is part of the IRS’ Identity, Credential, and Access Management (ICAM) programs, which aim to provide taxpayers with more options for verifying their identity and accessing IRS resources.

To ensure that taxpayers have secure access to IRS resources, the IRS recently partnered with ID.me, a reputable technology provider of identity verification and login services.

In addition to this, ID.me CEO Blake Hall posted a blog post on Wednesday, January 26 via his LinkedIn account stating that the company uses a technology known as one-to-many facial recognition, which compares a targeted face to a database of other known faces to discover any similarities.

This contradicts the company’s previous public claims, including a recent press release in which Blake Hall said the company only uses a less powerful version of facial recognition called one-to-one face matching, according to The Verge. .

“Our 1:1 face matching is comparable to taking a selfie to unlock a smartphone. ID.me does not use 1:many face recognition, which is more complex and problematic,” said CyberScoop, which spotted the message for the first time.

Due to a reluctance to provide details of operating procedure, which could be abused by thieves, Hall appeared to confess that his previous statement was incorrect in the new statements.

Hall wrote in the LinkedIn post that ID.me uses a specific “1-to-many” verification on selfies linked to government programs targeted by organized crime to prevent prolific identity thieves and organized crime members from stealing. massages the identities of innocent victims.

In this regard, CyberScoop also reported that privacy activists have criticized the company saying that consumers are threatened by both types of facial recognition.

In addition to multiple studies showing that the technology is less reliable on non-white skin, the accumulation of biometric data can pose a significant security problem.

Despite the fact that this feature poses significant security concerns, it should be noted that there are still some advantages offered by facial recognition.

3 Uses and benefits of facial recognition

For those who don’t know what facial recognition is, Tech Business Guide said it is a type of biometric software that can use facial characteristics to compare and analyze patterns to identify or verify a person’s identity.

Most of the time, the technology is used for security, but other applications are also gaining traction.

Due to its potential for a wide range of applications in law enforcement as well as other businesses, facial recognition technology has attracted a lot of attention.

Through this, Tech Business mentioned three benefits of facial recognition.

3. Improved public safety

Facial recognition is used to easily catch burglars, thieves and intruders.

With this method, private and public CCTV camera networks can be analyzed in real time.

The ability to track down criminals isn’t the only use of technology. For example, it also helps people locate missing children and elderly people.

2. Improved banking experience

There is still potential for improvement in the way banks use one-time passwords to access accounts or authorize transfers, despite the fact that they have become more complex.

Biometric identification using facial recognition technology is an option.

The user can authorize transactions just by looking at their smartphone or PC instead of those annoying one-time passwords.

Another advantage of facial recognition is that it enables biometric internet banking.

Thanks to facial recognition software, there are no passwords for hackers to compromise. Even if hackers got a database of personal photos, it would be of little value, because “liveness detection” would prevent them from being used for identity theft.

1. Attendance system

Time fraud is still one of the most prevalent work ethic violations in factories around the world.

The vast majority of employees tell the truth. Even still, a small percentage of employees use favors from co-workers or security personnel to avoid work (and still get paid).

Hourly fraud is not only bad for businesses, but also for good employees.

To register for work, everyone has to go through face scanning machines. From then until the time expires, workers will be charged for their rendered time through facial recognition.

Researchers from the University of Otago and the UK have developed the world’s first weight loss device to help tackle the global obesity epidemic.

The professor behind a controversial weight-loss device has resigned from his post at the University of Otago, but his decision was unrelated to his work on the project.

Professor Paul Brunton, who has been pro-vice chancellor for health sciences since 2018, will step down from Dunedin in July.

Brunton was appointed Dean of Dentistry in 2014 and helped oversee the redevelopment of the dental school and the establishment of the Manukau Counties Dental Education Center and Patient Care Clinic in South Auckland .

He said it had been “a huge privilege” to hold this position for the past few years and that he had enjoyed the breadth and scope of his work at Otago.

Professor Paul Brunton said his decision to leave Otago for Curtin was unrelated to his work with the DentalSlim project.

He will become Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Academic, at Curtin University in Western Australia, where former Vice-Chancellor of Otago Harlene Hayne leads the Perth-based higher education institution.

Acting Vice-Chancellor of Otago, Professor Helen Nicholson, thanked Brunton for her leadership during her tenure.

”His calm, respectful, dignified and intelligent approach, especially during difficult times like Covid-19, was appreciated.

With New Zealand being one of the most obese countries in the world, researchers from the University of Otago say now is the perfect time to introduce their first medical weight loss device to the world.

Brunton was a key figure behind DentalSlim Diet Control, which was developed by the University of Otago and UK researchers and touted as a “world’s first weight loss device” against global obesity.

But the device, which used magnets to keep people from opening their jaws, was widely criticized online and led other academics to publish a response article in the British Dental Journal on Friday.

It was also revealed by Things that three dietitians involved in the project resigned due to their concerns.

It takes courage and more than a little confidence to let a stranger into your home to rummage through your belongings in an effort to rationalize ownership for their greater good.

For most of us, that sounds like as much fun as a full body wax.

That’s why Jennifer McCarthy of Lake Oswego, Oregon did what any brave, driven wife and mother would do. She got a professional organizer started in her husband’s home office.

The desk was somewhere under piles of papers. “He was never good at filing,” McCarthy said of her husband, a business class instructor at a local college, who appreciated the help. “He has to see what needs to be done, and that won’t happen if the papers are tucked away in a filing drawer.”

Enter Danielle Tanner Liu, certified professional organizer and owner of Totally Orderly. She understands the out of sight, out of mind mentality, so she worked with his style and created a storage system for mail and papers he could see through. Everything about his rental properties went in one locker, paperwork related to his Cub work in another, bills to be paid in another, and so on.

“He could see everything from his office, but it was out of his office,” McCarthy said. “It was ingenious.”

And the trust built from there. Next, Liu helped McCarthy organize her kitchen, then her daughters’ closets. Now, three moves and 15 years later, Liu has improved the functioning of almost every area of ​​the McCarthy household.

“A little chaos is fine for a while, but I can’t live in the mess,” said McCarthy, 61, who works part-time at the local high school to coordinate the volunteer program. “Things have to be in place and have a place or I can’t go about my daily life, whether it’s being home with kids or doing work projects at home.”

When their three children started moving out, the couple went from a 4,800 square foot home to 3,100 square feet, and then to a 2,500 square foot home they built. “Dani helped me anticipate and visualize what would go where,” McCarthy said, “and see that if we were going to have that much room for pots, some have to go.”

Along the way, Liu also helped McCarthy’s husband, at his invitation, reduce 30 keepsake boxes, including a box of about 25 baseballs, to four boxes and a baseball.

“He and I had some epic sessions,” said Liu, a board member of the National Association of Productivity and Organizational Professionals and president of its certification program.

“Dani understands the issues people have with their stuff,” McCarthy said. “Work is much more emotional and psychological than you might think.”

Over the years, McCarthy estimates she’s paid a few thousand dollars for Liu’s services. “I would have paid more. It was totally worth it,” McCarthy said, adding, “A good organizer also helps reduce clutter because the whole family knows where things are going.

Wait. Stop there. In a family home, this is the key to ending clutter. Read this twice: everything has a place that makes sense. Everyone knows where this place is and puts things there.

“In other words,” I said, to make sure I heard correctly, “The linen closet only has laundry, not dog toys?”

Jeanann McCoy, another longtime Liu client and mother of six, agrees: “The house stays clean because everyone knows where everything belongs. Once things have a meaningful place, they tend to come back and stay there.

Well, isn’t that a big hallelujah?

“It’s not rocket science,” Liu said, “but there’s a science to it. Because people who live together connect to things in different ways, the process involves knowing those differences, respecting them, and to create systems that become habits that the whole family will adhere to.

That’s all.

Notably, none of these women had messy homes to begin with, Liu said. “Their homes were spotless. But looks can be deceiving: Clean doesn’t always mean organized.

So I asked these women what else they learned from the process that might help the rest of us:

• Enter the Zone: McCarthy’s house runs on stations. “If it has to do with baking, it goes here. If it has to do with grilling, it goes here,” she said. “Everything related to coffee can be found in the coffee station. If it’s sharp, it goes in that drawer. It’s that simple. The bar is not your drop zone; this is your drop zone.

• Sort it out. It’s not until you put similar things together that you realize you have eight sets of measuring cups, she said. It’s a great way to start decluttering.

• Choose someone you like. If you want to work with an organizer, talk to a couple. You have to like the person, McCarthy said. “It’s a personal relationship. You often work together closely. They touch your business and manage your emotions. You have to want to hang out with them.

• Be confident. Certified professional organizers are bound by a code of professional ethics which includes the protection of client privacy. Whether they know about financial documents, medications, personal items or family disputes, they keep it confidential.

• Do not be afraid. The organizers don’t force you to get rid of things. This is a common misconception. “However, they help you see your things in a new way,” McCoy said. “Dani is good at saying, ‘Do you really want this? Then you can choose to get rid of things. Once on a roll, this awareness helps you keep going.

Join me next week when I hire a professional organizer to come to my house.

Ethics and religion discussion: Should an employee be fired for their religious beliefs? https://ocupario.org/ethics-and-religion-discussion-should-an-employee-be-fired-for-their-religious-beliefs/ Tue, 18 Jan 2022 18:44:23 +0000 https://ocupario.org/ethics-and-religion-discussion-should-an-employee-be-fired-for-their-religious-beliefs/ Is it okay to fire a Muslim limo driver for not helping transport a package containing wine?

Is it okay to fire a Muslim limo driver for not helping transport a package containing wine? Is it okay to fire a Jewish cook for refusing to cook pork? Is it okay to fire a Christian carer hired to help a new mother and her six-month-old child for refusing to care for the mother after she aborted a subsequent pregnancy?

Reverend Colleen Squires, minister at All Souls Community Church of West Michigan, a Unitarian Universalist congregation, responds:

“No, it is not acceptable to fire someone for religious reasons. That being said, there should be clear communications before hiring someone or accepting a job if there will be certain expectations and requirements to do a job. Communication is essential in these circumstances. It is fair for an employer to make accommodations as long as they are reasonable requests. These requests cannot repeatedly cause business difficulties by proceeding to such accommodations. For example, the limousine driver could have helped with other packages by leaving the alcohol for others. The driver should not apply to work for Budweiser. An observant Jewish butcher could work in a kosher butcher shop, but not in a butcher shop that deals primarily in pork products.

Father Kevin Niehoff, OP, a Dominican priest who serves as Judicial Vicar, Diocese of Grand Rapids, responds:

“All of these scenarios are troubling. In an article on this topic, Kwame Anthony Appiah states, “When it comes to religious differences, we don’t have to bend over backwards; but we have to bend. This act of bending requires both sides to move, and hopefully this movement will eventually be towards each other.

“No, it is not acceptable to fire a Muslim limousine driver for transporting a package containing wine! No, it is not fair to fire a Jewish cook for refusing to cook pork! No, it is not appropriate for a Christian caregiver to refuse to care for a mother who has previously aborted a pregnancy. What makes these instances unacceptable is the lack of dialogue and respect for others. Instead, the focus is on the person judging. This person forces everyone to adhere to what he believes!

“Religious practice is not just a personal preference. Individuals practice a religious tradition because of something that holds them deep within. Someone does not have to agree with this belief system to respect it. Similarly, a person holding a belief system does not need to force others to believe the same thing to respect the other.

“People cross bridges when they open up to objective truth. Communication is the vehicle for crossing bridges. Let’s talk about it openly and be open to other ideas and ideals.

Linda Knieriemen, senior pastor of First Presbyterian Church in Holland, responds:

“These are complex situations that we see more and more as society becomes more polarized and religious and political lines lengthen. Religious beliefs and practices should be respected and accommodated as much as possible rather than creating win/lose situations. May kindness and civility prevail.

Fred Stella, the Pracharak (minister of outreach) of the West Michigan Hindu Temple, responds:

“We start with a question about someone being fired for the perceived offense of not greeting a customer appropriately. I suspect that many who read this story will feel empathy for the driver, regardless of their opinion on the main issue. Although the owner has every right to expect his employees to provide excellent service, a larger conversation should have taken place. Assuming the driver was a solid employee, otherwise a reprimand would have sufficed.

“Having said that, I certainly understand the frustration of the owner of the limo service. Is he going to have to ask each customer if he needs extra help carrying alcohol? What if a Muslim finds even driving a car with wine or beer offensive? What about non-halal meat? Pork? What if the driver knows the customer is with someone other than a spouse? These and other questions must be resolved before employment takes place.

“As for the Jew cooking pork, I would like to know more about this circumstance, real or imagined. If pork is on the menu, why would anyone (Jew, Muslim or Hindu) work on it? And the Christian caregiver is obviously not observing Jesus’ command to judge others.

“The Hindu adage, ‘When a lesser duty conflicts with a higher duty, it ceases to be a duty’ plays into all of this. Example: For many years, I volunteered at a camp for people with muscular dystrophy. Most campers need help eating. As a mostly vegetarian Hindu (with the occasional bite of fish), I have no problem cooking burgers, hot dogs, or anything else for whoever I’m serving that week. I have also heard this sentiment expressed by Hindu opinion leaders. ”

My answer:

It is important to know what the job responsibilities are before accepting a job, and one should not accept a job that violates one’s religious principles. If a person refuses to do the job they were hired to do, they can be fired. A nursing aide is hired to provide care, not to monitor the religious and moral purity of the employer. The employer, however, should make reasonable accommodations for the employee’s religious practices, even if they differ from their own.

Jan. 6 panel wrestles with how to get testimony from lawmakers, Pence https://ocupario.org/jan-6-panel-wrestles-with-how-to-get-testimony-from-lawmakers-pence/ Mon, 17 Jan 2022 01:42:27 +0000 https://ocupario.org/jan-6-panel-wrestles-with-how-to-get-testimony-from-lawmakers-pence/ Vice Speaker Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., speaks with Speaker Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., and Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., as the House Select Committee investigating the insurrection of January 6 meets on December 13.

The House panel investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection is in the midst of a crucial debate over how aggressively to seek cooperation from key witnesses who resist testifying before the committee, including several members of Congress and the former Vice President Mike Pence.

Pence, along with Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., and Reps. Scott Perry, R-Pa., and Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, could help the committee paint a full picture of President Donald’s role Trump on the Capitol insurrection and the extent of his influence on efforts to disrupt the official certification of Joe Biden’s victory.

But the four lawmakers refused to cooperate, leading the Jan. 6 committee to consider whether to issue subpoenas to sitting members of Congress, a step taken rarely in the past.

The panel is split on whether to pursue such subpoenas, in part over concerns that a protracted legal fight will delay the committee’s goal of releasing a report before the November midterms, according to people familiar with the matter. debate who spoke on condition of anonymity to reveal internal discussions.

Some committee members, including Vice Chair Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., reported aggressive posturing while others, including Chair Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., issued notes of skepticism about the possibility to enforce such assignments.

At the same time, the panel has entered into preliminary discussions with Pence about how to get his account of events, including the sustained pressure he has received from Trump and other Republicans to block certification of the election victory. of Biden.

There has been little public discussion about the possibility of calling Trump as a witness or traveling to secure his account of events, but “nothing has been ruled out,” a committee staffer said.

For Pence, the committee’s goal would be to get the former vice president to answer questions under oath, ideally in public. Options for obtaining his cooperation were discussed in preliminary conversations between the committee’s chief counsel, Tim Heaphy, and Pence’s attorney, Richard Cullen, who was just appointed adviser to Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin, R But Pence doesn’t want to appear in front of the committee, his insiders say. “I don’t see any situation where he does that,” a senior adviser said.

The two attorneys, who are friends and former legal partners, have informally discussed the possibility of Pence cooperating and how it might happen. Heaphy expressed the committee’s desire for Pence to answer questions in a taped interview, but the former vice president made it clear from the start that he neither wanted nor planned to testify, according to people familiar with the conversations. .

Some of Pence’s advisers believe the framework is under the vice president’s office, and Pence has come to believe that the committee has become overtly partisan. Answering questions under oath could also be politically damaging to Pence as he considers a potential 2024 presidential bid and seeks support from Trump voters.

For several weeks, Pence advisers said their opinion of the committee had deteriorated as the panel appeared to act in a more partisan manner, stressing the value of making criminal referrals and making comments they say were pressuring Pence.

Members spoke optimistically about Pence’s cooperation. Thompson said last week during an interview with NPR that members expected this month to ask Pence to appear voluntarily before the committee. He later backtracked on his comment, telling reporters on Monday that he never said an official request was coming.

“[Pence], like many other people, we think might have something to give the committee, but we haven’t made the decision to formally invite him to come here,” Thompson said.

Three weeks ago, former Pence chief of staff Marc Short publicly expressed his lack of confidence in the panel’s impartiality.

“I also can’t be very confident that this committee is going to provide some kind of unbiased analysis,” Short told Fox News, a sentiment shared by others in Pence’s orbit.

Nonetheless, Pence and his team continued to engage. Two of Pence’s top aides, including Short, are expected to appear before the committee in the coming weeks. Short’s attorney, Emmet Flood, was involved in negotiations with the committee over the line of questioning for him, according to people familiar with the discussion.

As for Pence, his attorney has suggested alternatives to questioning under oath, such as written answers to questions or an offer from the former vice president’s legal team.

The committee wants information on a wide range of topics, including the pressure put on Pence by Trump and his allies to block election certification on Jan. 6 and staff movements at the Justice Department, according to a person familiar with the demands of the committee. The panel is also interested in any conversations that may have taken place regarding pressure for Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment, declare Trump unfit for office and assume the powers and responsibilities of acting president, the person said.

The committee is also expected to interview Greg Jacob, Pence’s former attorney, next month. Last fall, the committee interviewed J. Michael Luttig, a former federal judge who advised Pence’s legal team in the days leading up to the Jan. 6 vote.

In a related move, Cheney reached out to longtime friend, former Vice President Dan Quayle, who spoke with Pence before Jan. 6, according to people familiar with the conversation. In their private chat, Quayle confirmed that he had informed Pence that he had “no choice” but to comply with the parliamentarian’s instructions and resist suggestions for election intervention. The conversation between Pence and Quayle was first recorded in the book “Peril”, by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa.

During an interview with The Washington Post on Friday, Quayle acknowledged speaking to Cheney but declined to discuss the substance of the conversation. Other than Cheney, Quayle said he had “no contact” with the select committee or its staff.

“I didn’t notice any hesitation on his part,” Quayle said of his conversation with Pence. “I interpreted his questions as seeking confirmation that what he was going to do was right and that he had no flexibility. That’s how I read it. Given the pressure he was under, I thought it was completely normal, very clever of him to call me.

The committee remains undecided on whether it will ultimately subpoena the House GOP lawmakers who rejected its pleas for voluntary cooperation. Although Thompson has previously said the committee would not hesitate to issue subpoenas, he has expressed reservations about their effective enforcement with GOP lawmakers.

“If we subpoena them and they choose not to come, I don’t know of any real vehicle that we can force them to comply with,” Thompson told ABC News last month.

Investigators have been working to identify precedents for subpoenas of serving members, according to two committee sources. One example they focused on is the House Ethics Committee‘s two-year investigation into the personal finances of Rep. Charles Rangel, DN.Y. Rangel, who was ultimately found guilty of 11 ethics charges, was subpoenaed by the investigating subcommittee after refusing repeated requests for a forensic accountant’s report and other documents.

Rob Walker, former chief counsel and staff director of the Senate and House ethics committees and former federal prosecutor, said that while he believes the committee has the power to subpoena members, there is a “colorful argument that when the Chamber undertakes the activity of reviewing the conduct of its own members, they should follow the process in place, which is the ethics process.

Although the committee has an investigative — not a disciplinary — mission, subpoenaed members might have a different perspective, Walker said.

“They could argue that the investigation could have negative consequences for them, whether politically or otherwise, and therefore it amounts to a quasi-disciplinary framework,” he said. “If that’s the case, they might have an argument that the House has procedures in place within the ethics committee to compel process and cooperation.”

Some lawmakers on the committee have taken a more aggressive stance. Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., told CNN that “nothing prevents the committee from taking” the step of subpoenaing lawmakers and dismissed the idea that sitting lawmakers are shielded from abuse. investigation by the Constitution, which states that “in respect of any Speech or Debate in either House,” Congressional legislators “shall not be questioned in any other place.”

It is feared, however, that any litigation could delay the work of the committee by several months. But Kim Wehle, a law professor at the University of Baltimore, said the Supreme Court could speed up the process if it grants expedited review, as it did in a recent case involving coronavirus vaccine warrants.

During an interview on MSNBC Thursday, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-California, reiterated that the committee is still evaluating next steps, but suggested “other options than the criminal contempt route.”

“We have some remedies, potentially, with McCarthy, with Perry, with Jordan, with other members of the House that we don’t have with a Steve Bannon, for example, or Mark Meadows,” Schiff said, referring to a former political adviser to Trump. and a former Trump chief of staff who were subpoenaed. “It’s because the House can control its own members, can discipline its own members.”

Alice Crites of The Washington Post contributed to this report.

How can you increase your chance of getting a low credit loan?

To improve your chances of being eligible for a loan for bad credit Try to meet the other criteria established for you by the mighty Payday Champ. Additionally, you must provide your application with complete details. Don’t apply for higher than you actually need, as, keep in mind that you’ll be required to pay more than the initial amount.

A quick reaction to a catastrophe and then a long sleeping pattern until hit by another catastrophe, will continue to hurt us as a country. 

Disasters are avoided by updating robust systems, constant monitoring, SOPs, reactivity and preparedness for disasters. All of this was evident to be lacking during the Murree incident, which resulted at the loss of 23 people trapped in snow-covered vehicles.

Question. What is more dangerous than a catastrophe? The answer to this. The United States hasn’t updated its response to events for quite a while. The most basic security measures implemented of the local authorities and tourists could have stopped an escape on a weekend, which turned into an icy death-trap.

How? ‘Or’ What? Answering the right questions can be the very first thing in avoid a similar catastrophe in the near future. What made the local government remain silent for a whole week before the situation to get into chaos? What was the reason for five or January weather alerts from the Met Office that heavy snowfall could result in road closings within Murree, Galiyat, Nathiagali, Kaghan and Naran went not received by the public and families? In light of the bleak forecast for weather, why did not authorities advise families to stay away from making plans to take a weekend trip for the hills?

Mountain stations are limited in capacity. With Murree only being able to house approximately 4000 cars at any given time So, why was the influx of vehicles allowed to remain? The local government has been shocked by the many officials. The question is, what is the biggest surprise? Murree gets snowfall each year and tourists endure long, uncomfortable traffic jams whenever the volume of cars that pass through the station exceeds the capacity of the station by a number of times. This time, it is only the severity of the problem has reached a point of no return.

It’s heartbreaking to see how Hotel owners in the area have profited by causing the suffering of tourists by increasing the cost of accommodation and food. Should we be taught the ethics of professional conduct? Work ethic? Each year, videos go viral on social media showing the way that seasonal business owners take advantage of visitors in the city of Murree. When will these businesses be controlled? Hosts trained and tamed?

For those who travel, the most important tip to keep in mind when getting stuck is to ensure you don’t get into the car while the heater is turned on. If the storm is getting severe and you need to sleep the drivers and passengers might consider it a good idea to sleep in their car. This could lead to accidental carbon monoxide poisoning. Do not sleep in a parking vehicle that has an engine running. The car’s exhaust that is clogged with snow can flood the vehicle’s insides with carbon monoxide. This is which is odorless and difficult to detect gas. The winter and snow tires should be used on snow to ensure steady road grip. In addition, the government can utilize trackers on automobiles and convert congested areas to an open drive-thru for tourists to go in and out in a predetermined time. This can help avoid long traffic jams along the roads.

If you are experiencing an icy storm, stay inside the vehicle! If you go out of the vehicle, you’ll quickly be lost in the wind-driven snow and freezing cold. The engine should be running for approximately 10 minutes every hour to warmth. Keep your eyes open to rescuers. If you are trapped inside a vehicle make sure to keep the windows slightly lower while the heater is running to keep the oxygen level within the vehicle.

The survival kit for snowfall includes an Ice scraper and windshield defroster, as well as jumper cables for the case where the vehicle can’t start itself on its own warm clothes, blankets and flashlights. poached. Also, there must be food and water available within the vehicle’s back vehicle in the event of an emergency and the fuel tank must always be fully stocked. These precautions are vital.

As we begin the new year, we need to take advantage of technology to assess our capabilities and plan plans for responding to a disaster. Without the proper tools, information and the willingness to embrace innovative solutions to the emerging challenges, the local government are likely to continue being shocked by the unavoidable! If they act quickly they could help save lives, properties and their image as a tourist destination.

Chicago Sun-Times. January 9, 2021.

Editorial: Illinois Legislature Now Needs New Watchdog

Once again, the position of legislative inspector general is vacant.

The Illinois Legislative Ethics Commission must pull itself together and appoint a new inspector general. Currently, the Legislature does not have a corruption watchdog within its ranks.

This is not a good state of affairs.

Carol Pope, the legislative inspector general since 2019, announced in July that she was stepping down from her post, but the committee could not agree on a recommendation for a replacement. Normally that wouldn’t necessarily raise a red flag, but before Pope, the office was unoccupied for four years. Illinois cannot afford to make a habit of leaving such an important office empty.

We have seen this sorry scenario play out before us, with disastrous results. In 2017, when no one held the post of Inspector General of Legislation, a victim’s rights activist said her sexual harassment complaint against a state senator had gone nowhere for more than a year. More recently, no investigation was opened into a complaint filed on December 23 because there is no Inspector General to do so.

This is no way to deal with allegations of wrongdoing.

According to Pope’s resignation letter, his last day was Thursday. The opportunity for a smooth transition to a new Inspector General has already been wasted as no date has been set for the House and Senate to resume their sessions and be able to confirm a new Inspector General. The Legislature adjourned last week without discussing the matter.

According to press reports, the four Republicans on the eight-person commission want to recommend Joseph Hartzler, a former deputy U.S. prosecutor who helped prosecute convicted Oklahoma City suicide bomber Timothy McVeigh. The four Democrats prefer former federal prosecutor David Risley, who has the advantage of having worked as an investigator under the Pope. Hartzler and Risley both worked in the administration of former Governor Bruce Rauner.

Any recommendation or recommendation of the committee is forwarded to the Legislative Assembly for a final vote.

Apparently, Democrats on the committee believe the Republicans are trying to force their preferred candidate by ignoring other qualified candidates and forcing the legislature to take the GOP’s choice. Republicans say Democrats are trying to add their own candidate to the list of recommendations because they know the Democratic majorities in the Legislature will have the final say.

It is regrettable that the recommendation process was not completed in a transparent and bipartisan manner.

Impartial, zealous and careful

Choosing an inspector general requires careful consideration. A candidate must not only be impartial, but must also be both zealous in investigating ethics violations and being careful not to unfairly prey on people for common mistakes. Former Inspector General James Wright, for example, was charged with the latter case when he urged then Attorney General Lisa Madigan to press charges against former chief of staff to former Governor Pat. Quinn, Jerry Stermer, after Stermer reported that he accidentally answered three non-government messages on his state cell phone instead of his home phone.

Last spring, the Legislature passed a bipartisan ethics reform measure that gave the Inspector General the power to issue subpoenas, a long-sought reform. But the IG must still get permission from the commission to issue these subpoenas and make public reports on lawmakers who have engaged in wrongdoing. This did not suit Pope, a former prosecutor and appellate judge, who called for more independence, just like his two predecessors. Even after last year’s reforms, she said the office remained a “paper tiger”.

State Senator Jil Tracy, R-Quincy, introduced a bill with additional proposals, including banning elected officials from sitting on the committee, granting the office of the inspector general of legislation to ” an independent power of subpoena and widening of access to the commission’s minutes for journalists and the public, ideas which were submitted in 2020 to the Joint Ethics and Lobbying Commission.

But even if more reforms are put in place, they won’t change much if there is no qualified and impartial inspector general to investigate legislative corruption.

Complete the work.

Champaign News-Gazette. January 9, 2021.

Editorial: The most important new item in the state budget on the plates of lawmakers

The Illinois political calendar will determine the legislative calendar in Springfield.

Illinois lawmakers were back in Springfield last week, indulging in more political fouls that are seen as doing public business.

If they have done it as they please, they will act in haste, clearing the way for the rest of us to bemoan our actions in the leisure time. The leaders of the qualified majority Democrats in the House and Senate have said they intend to finish their work, especially the new state budget, by April 8.

That’s well ahead of the usual adjournment date of late May. This being an election year – the primary election is June 29 and the general election is November 8 – lawmakers want plenty of extra time to tell their constituents what a great job they are doing.

But even that early end is a long way off – roughly three cold, wintry months – and the often difficult budget chore is ahead.

House Speaker Chris Welch has misleadingly stated that he hopes the new state spending plan will allow the state to “continue on the path of financial stability.”

It is a laudable goal. But Illinois hasn’t followed the path of financial stability for nearly two decades. Instead, our elected officials have chosen debts and deficits camouflaged by deception and budget gimmicks to swindle the public about the true state of the state’s finances.

Even though Governor JB Pritzker, who inherited a tax mess, calls a balanced 2022-2023 budget his “top priority,” expect more of the usual tax sleight of hand.

Our leaders are happier when they can spend, spend, spend, even if the state doesn’t have the money. So they’ll be doing plenty of exercise to fight the temptation to appropriate roughly $ 3.6 billion out of last year’s $ 8.1 billion federal coronavirus bailout.

This can seem like a large sum of money to fall back on if spending plans strain expected income. But it’s important to remember that the state owes much more than that – $ 4.5 billion – to the federal UI trust fund.

This $ 4.5 billion debt bears interest of 2.27%. State comptroller Susana Mendoza has asked federal officials to suspend interest.

There is nothing wrong with asking. After all, if you don’t ask, you don’t get. But expecting lenders to forgo the agreed interest is usually not the most effective way to deal with serious financial problems.

As this year is an election year, lawmakers are also talking about lowering property taxes.

Property taxes are imposed by local tax bodies that state officials cannot control. But it’s a good talking point because the eyes of financially stressed taxpayers light up when lawmakers bring up the topic. But just as is the case with discussions on balancing the budget, so too are recent discussions on legislative action on property tax relief.

In August 2019, the governor appointed with great fanfare an 88-member property tax task force to make proposals on how to reduce property taxes. Deadlines for his report on the subject have come and gone without a response.

Given this record, it is difficult to be optimistic about the positive outcome of property tax relief.

Here’s what the public can expect. Qualified Democrats will do their own thing on the issues they deem important. The Republicans of the superiority will complain publicly but will mostly be ignored, except when the governor criticizes them for being the obstructionists that they are not but that they would like to be.

The public has seen this film before. The only difference is that it will conclude Illinois’ idea of ​​a happier ending sooner than usual.

Bloomington Pantagraph. January 7, 2021.

Editorial: Embarrassing Ethical Behavior in Springfield

Illinois lawmakers continue to fail our state by failing to take ethical reform and accountability seriously.

The final example: the embarrassing handling of the departure of Inspector General of Legislation Carol Pope.

The Inspector General is a kind of clearinghouse for conduct complaints against lawmakers. The position is empowered to investigate allegations that a law, rule or regulation has been violated by lawmakers or those working for the legislature.

A Republican, Pope was appointed in 2019 after the post was dark for four years. But she became frustrated with the post lacking more power and with the ethics reform legislation lawmakers passed last year, saying lawmakers “have shown that a real ethics reform is not a priority “.

Pope told lawmakers in July that she would step down in mid-December. Then she extended it after a bipartisan panel appointed by party leaders could not agree on a replacement.

Republicans say Democrats, who control both chambers, wanted someone who was not recommended by the panel. Both sides said there were partisan factors at play. There were allegations of political maneuvering.

Cut short by an abridged session because of COVID, lawmakers left Springfield last week without reaching agreement on this crucial position.

The irony of this is not lost, but not so surprising. The words “ethical reform” and “Springfield” do not correspond exactly.

Illinois has a long history of extremely corrupt politicians, from notorious Chicago City Council members like “Hinky Dink” Kenna to a string of governors who have spent time behind bars. (See Blagojevich.)

In recent years, two members of the General Assembly, Martin Sandoval and Luis Arroyo, have been charged with corruption.

And then there’s Michael Madigan, the once powerful Speaker of the House whose incredible downfall coincided with ComEd’s investigation into corruption and bribery.

This investigation by federal prosecutors is continuing.

And yet Illinois does not have an internal watchdog to protect citizens from corrupt politicians.

It is a failure of those sent to Springfield.

It is a failure of the system.

College serves several purposes for students. Learning to balance a social life, work and school can make or break some. The life skills that most universities give us are so valuable, but are they really worth the thousands of dollars in debt they cost us?

Did you know that university is not the only option for continuing education? Until recently, students had to shell out thousands of dollars to learn a new trade or industry at a university. During the last years, Youtube has changed the situation and has become a medium for a wide range of free and quality information.

Financial expert and founder and CEO of The state of mind of minoritiesJaspreet Singh has long believed that if you play your cards right and find credible sources, you can find out everything on YouTube, all for free. According to Jaspreet, YouTube is decentralizing the education system.

The school system

Let’s take a step back and explore what drove YouTube to provide these awesome resources in the first place.

To understand this, we need to verify the original source of our society’s educational resources – the school system. In America, public education is available for free – until college.

At the dawn of “university age”, students decide whether they want to continue their education or find a job without continuing their education. It is certainly a social norm to fill out college admissions applications, pray for your entry, and feel grateful when you put together enough scholarships, grants, and loans to fund your college experience.

However, nowadays many entrepreneurs are realizing that they can have innovative careers without this step! Their experience, charisma and work ethic begin to mean far more to businesses and customers than any number of years of additional education.

How did this change start? Why isn’t college so appealing anymore? Jaspreet Singh noticed that there is two major factors which affected this shift: accessibility to college and the normalization of indebtedness.

From exclusive to inclusive

First of all, continuing education was more exclusive. It was difficult to get into college, and even more difficult to get a private loan to pay for your education. Therefore, the rich or the very intelligent were certainly favored.

Not everyone could afford, or intellectually manage, the opportunity to go to college. If that were the case these days, many of those currently enrolled in college would not have had the chance to be accepted.

Over the years, the government has started to lay down a plan to make college more accessible to everyone! Exciting, isn’t it? Not exactly. When everyone is special, no one is. Now the government is providing loans to all students who need them. Anyone can get into debt; anyone can go to college.

In response, universities have made the prices of tuition astronomical, because good, they are funded by the government! And admissions processes have become considerably easier, as the more money students receive, the better for college.

The more time passed, the more students had to shell out to pay the tuition fees. And, the less exclusive college has become. When an asset like a college degree becomes commonplace, it no longer has the scarce value it once had. Now university degrees are worth less and less. And they are becoming more and more expensive to secure.

Is debt now inevitable?

In 2020, the average amount of student debt held by a student was approximately $ 30,000. Over the past 10 years we have seen a 20% increase in the average amount of student debt held by students. This continued to normalize the taking of student loans and increase the value of loans considered “normal”.

Today, students generally consider themselves lucky to graduate from a 4-year degree with less than $ 30,000. It seems “feasible” to take on this “small” amount of debt in exchange for a degree. But how long does it take former students to repay? Recent statistics show that, on average, 20 years for borrowers to pay off this student loan debt. Does the loan still seem “doable” and “small” now?

Because of this societal standard of debt, students have been conditioned to think of it as just a way of life; that this is the only way for them to become a successful professional. Most borrowers face the reality of their debt, interest rates, and increasingly insignificant degrees after graduation, and that’s not a pretty reality.

In our society today, debt has become almost inevitable. It is understood as a necessary evil to obtain a diploma, housing or a car. However, Jaspreet discovered that there are many alternatives to this educational debt burden in the online world! The main alternative to formal education today is YouTube (and spoiler alert: it’s completely free).

The power of YouTube

YouTube entered the internet scene in 2005, as the first true platform available to users to create and watch all the videos they loved. It has responded to today’s need for video entertainment, and continues to do so today, among other video platforms like TikTok and Instagram.

YouTube quickly rose to fame, as a medium for video ads, home videos, presidential debates, and later informational videos. Content creators have started to see the need for accessible, informative and useful content for consumers.

Over 15 years later, there is a YouTube corner for everyone. Need help with your biology homework? There is a chain for that. Do you like weird cat videos? Look far. Need to understand how to replace your kitchen backsplash? There is a YouTuber who can guide you.

Essentially, YouTube has created a platform for “experts” to share their knowledge and “newbies” to learn more about any topic they like. You can choose the experts that suit your learning styles and find the corner of the Internet that best meets your needs. Jaspreet has created a valuable channel to share his expertise on financial truths with The Minority Mindset Youtube channel.

YouTube has radically changed the problem-solving abilities of professionals, which means they can solve any program, topic, or industry issue they have in real time, at work, from their phones.

Are you a professional who wishes to build up a wealth? Stay on top of financial terms and news by browsing YouTube. Most of us can’t justify giving up an extra $ 30,000 for a finance degree. Enter: YouTube.

For Jaspreet & The state of mind of minorities – YouTube started out as a hobby. But after a few years of making videos, Jaspreet realized that YouTube was more than just a place to make entertaining videos. It is a place to provide accessible financial education.

If you hear words like crypto, ETF, investing, stock market, and wealth and you’re not sure what these things mean, Jaspreet breaks these concepts down so you can be confident in your financial journey.

Jaspreet used The Minority Mindset to leverage his YouTube channel into something more – a full-fledged financial media company. Jaspreet leveraged the success of his viral YouTube channel in his business to build a brand bigger than YouTube.

For example, if you’re looking for a step-by-step guide on how to get started on the stock market, the team at Jaspreet has put together a free guide that you can read, they have a daily financial newsletter and a blog.

So YouTube lets you learn whatever you want, from teachers who do what they teach. And they offer entrepreneurs the opportunity to educate and speak directly to their audience.

Stay innovative

You can get all the information you want on YouTube, but it’s up to you to continue to challenge yourself to be creative and innovative. The world doesn’t need more college degrees, it needs more people with entrepreneurship and the power to solve problems and find creative solutions.

Employers are no longer looking to see “if” you graduated. They are looking to see if you can learn a new system and find solutions to their everyday problems. You might not have learned it from college, but YouTube can.

While college may have served many purposes for most of us, is it worth the debt that comes with it? Where there are arguably better sources of online education (for example, free), how to continue to justify the debt that accompanies each diploma?

With YouTube’s educational content and your unique personality, you have the tools you need to have a successful career and a healthy financial life, without the burden of college debt.
