Misprinted absentee ballot envelopes prompt Ketchikan officials to ask residents to double-check addresses

first_imgLocal Government | SoutheastMisprinted absentee ballot envelopes prompt Ketchikan officials to ask residents to double-check addressesSeptember 22, 2020 by Eric Stone, KRBD – Ketchikan Share:Secrecy folders for ballots and “I Voted” stickers at a polling place in the State Office Building for early and absentee voting, Aug. 15, 2016. (Photo by Jeremy Hsieh/KTOO)Registered voters with absentee ballots should double-check that their voting materials are for the correct community. That’s after Ketchikan election officials say more than a dozen registered voters were mailed absentee ballot envelopes with the wrong return address. Ketchikan Gateway Borough Clerk Kacie Paxton says between 15 and 25 voters likely got return envelopes that were printed for Palmer or Wasilla voters.“We mailed out our first batch of by-mail ballots on Friday, and on Saturday, I learned that a voter had received a by mail packet with an incorrect return envelope,” Paxton said in a phone interview Monday.Paxton says the borough’s longtime contracted printer for election materials — Homer-based Print Works — was dealing with large orders from several municipalities, including Ketchikan and the Mat-Su communities.“It sounds like it was in that process of folding these envelopes and sorting them and placing them in the boxes for the various different municipalities and it was in that process where it occurred. And a number of envelopes that were printed for the city of Wasilla and city of Palmer were placed into the box, coming to the Ketchikan Gateway Borough,” Paxton said.Paxton says the borough’s spot check of the 1,000 absentee ballot packets didn’t pick up the mistake.In a statement, Print Works owner Kevin Fraley apologized for the error and offered to pay to fix it. He says the company is taking precautions to ensure it can’t happen again and he regrets the oversight, saying that an error that undermines confidence in elections is the last thing Alaskans need.Ketchikan’s clerk’s office encourages all absentee voters to double-check the return address on the back of their absentee ballot and ensure the address is in Ketchikan. Paxton says she’s also contacted officials in Palmer and Wasilla about the misprint.“For several reasons,” Paxton said. “One, because all of these envelopes were printed together, there’s a possibility that they could also have incorrect envelopes in their batches. So we wanted to make them aware. And then also to make them aware that some of our voters could have a return address that could be returned to them.“So we’ll be in constant contact with both the voters and the clerks in Palmer and Wasilla to make sure that we account for every ballot, we’ll be reaching out to these voters until we receive their ballot to make sure that we that we help them to be able to vote, send it in, and that we get them in time,” Paxton continued.Paxton says her office has reached out to all 94 residents who were in that first batch of absentee ballots. For those who got incorrectly-addressed envelopes, she’s offering to pick up completed absentee ballots within city limits.Voters outside Ketchikan city limits can either drop them off at the borough’s office building at 1900 First Ave. or call to request a new envelope.It’s not the first printing error that’s affected mail-in voting this election cycle. Earlier this year, the Alaska Republican Party sent absentee ballot applications with the wrong names to about 3,500 registered voters.Alaska GOP Chair Glenn Clary blamed a mail-merge error by a contracted printer for the mishap. Clary said Monday that the GOP uses a different printer than the Ketchikan Gateway Borough.Ketchikan residents with questions about absentee voting or the printing error can contact the borough clerk’s office at 228-6605. Voters can request an absentee ballot for the October 6 municipal elections through Tuesday, Sept. 29.Share this story:last_img read more

Deflation spiral: Who would be the winners and losers?

first_img Show Comments ▼ Jessica Morris whatsapp Thursday 8 January 2015 12:33 pm whatsappcenter_img Share Deflation spiral: Who would be the winners and losers? Yesterday it was finally confirmed the embattled eurozone slipped into deflation in the final month of 2014.Consumer prices slid into negative territory with a -0.2 per cent year-on-year inflation rate. This marked a significant fall from November when prices rose by 0.3 per cent according to Eurostat. This has fuelled concern the eurozone could be teetering on the edge of a deflation death spiral, where people delay spending on the belief better deals will be around tomorrow. This weakens demand and eventually eats into companies’ profits reducing cash available for investment, new hires and wages.Eventually a vicious cycle emerges as depressed demand becomes more entrenched crunching companies’ profits, curtailing wage and job growth and how much people are prepared to spend.The euro area hasn’t fallen into a deflationary trap just yet – the reading was largely due to crumbling oil prices and core inflation (which removes more volatile indicators like food and energy) was 0.8 per cent.But if it does fall down the much-dreaded deflation death trap who will be the winners and losers?Winners:Consumers:Initially consumers would be better off as falling prices cut the cost of everyday goods like petrol, clothing, food and even laptops.Good deflation (or so-called benign deflation) is when technological innovation drives productivity flooding markets with more products. The surplus drives down prices while shielding people from nastier side effects like falling wages, layoffs etc.But if it’s the bad kind (or so-called malign deflation) consumers will eventually feel pinched as jobs and wages are squeezed.Savers:Deflation can reward savers who painstakingly cream off a portion of their paycheck each month and park it in the bank.However while high inflation actually eats into the value of money by reducing purchasing power, in times of deflation it’ll do the exact opposite.What’s more, falling prices and delayed purchases means people spend less, leaving the financially prudent with more left over to save at the end of the month.Retirees:Deflation can also top-up retirees’ incomes by making the value of pension pots decrease more slowly.Equally, it can depend on the kind of scheme they have, and those with a final salary pension scheme will be best off. However, if you’ve brought an inflation-linked annuity, then you could see your retirement income dwindle.Losers:Borrowers and their banks:Endemic deflation makes it much more difficult for households (and also governments) to service their debts as the real value falls more slower than initially expected.For individuals depressed wages mean the number of hours employees must theoretically work to pay back their debts increases. Banks also suffer as borrowers become reluctant, and at worse unable, to repay loans.Governments will also struggle, as prices and wages fall, with a knock-on effect on tax revenue. Peripheral eurozone countries with big debts such as Greece, Italy and Spain would be particularly worse off.Retailers:Retailers lose out during deflationary periods as falling prices encourages people to put off spending decisions.Why would someone pay £50 for a microwave one week when they think it’ll be going for around £45 at a later date? Savvy shoppers who hold out could end up £5 better off.What’s more, weak demand can lead retailers to slash prices further, as they battle to win ever scarer custom.The European Central Bank:Central bankers dread full-blown deflation because, once it’s takes hold, there’s little they can do to stop it.Policymakers typically stimulate inflation by raising interest rates, but with interest rates languishing at record lows, there’s little room to manoeuvre.Yesterday’s inflation figures have fired-up already hot pressure on the European Central Bank to introduce quantitative easing but there’s also doubts about how successful this will be.

Health Ministry organises workshop on health and nutrition initiatives

first_img By EH News Bureau on October 23, 2018 In order to address the disparities, which are largely located in pockets within states, the government has identified 117 Aspirational DistrictsThe Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, in collaboration with Ministry of Women and Child Development, organised a one-day National Workshop for Orientation of District Officials of Aspirational Districts on Health and Nutrition recently.The workshop was inaugurated by Ashwini Kumar Choubey and Anupriya Patel, Ministers of State for Health and Family Welfare. At the function, the State Health Ministers unveiled the Operational Guidelines on Aspirational Districts for Health and Nutrition and launched the e-Mitra mobile application.Speaking at the event, Choubey stated that most of the developmental gains for the country will come from aspirational districts. Therefore, to achieve equity and accelerated improvements in human development indicators, the government has focused its energy on these districts, he said.Dr Vinod Paul, Member, NITI Ayog, Rakesh Srivastava, Secretary, Ministry of Women and Child Development and Preeti Sudan, Secretary (HFW) were also present at the inaugural function.In his address, Choubey further stated that this is a first of its kind initiative by identifying 117 districts under the ‘Aspirational Districts’ programme with an aim to quickly and effectively transform them. He added that India has made great progress in the context of health indicators and have practically achieved MDG targets.“The decline in Maternal Mortality Ratio (MMR) has been the highest since the last several decades which has declined by 37 points from 167/ lakh live births in 2011-13 to 130/ lakh live births in 2014-16 within a span of just three years. This accounts for an impressive 22 per cent reduction in MMR since 2013,” he said.Addressing the participants, Patel said that the government is committed to achieving the goals of the National Health Policy 2017, and of the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030, “We have achieved impressive results in terms of accessibility and quality of services which resulted in reduced deaths of mothers, newborns and children, and improved health outcomes overall,” she said.Patel further said that in order to address the disparities, which are largely located in pockets within states, the government has identified 117 Aspirational Districts. “It is expected that sustained and intensive efforts in programme implementation, monitoring and support will improve health and nutrition indicators and ensure that all people have equal access to high quality health care,” she elaborated.The Prime Minister of India has coined the nomenclature of Aspirational Districts, thereby affirming a commitment to improvement in key indicators of these districts, so as to achieve the vision of a New India by 2022, she said.The operational guidelines on Aspirational Districts will provide a framework for implementing action to be undertaken for various health initiatives to guide the state, district, block programme officers and other stakeholders in organizing various activities expected to meet the vision for health by leveraging health and nutrition initiatives to bring transformation in the lives of people and meet their aspirations to be healthy.The e-Mitra (Mobile Integrated Toolkit RMNCH+A ) app has been designed to complement the Aspirational District Programme and offers a one stop solution to access RMNCH+A related statistics from different sources through a combination of approaches.The workshop was attended by the senior officers from the Ministry of Health, MoWCD and NHSRC along with the representatives from 28 States, 117 Aspirational District Official and development partners like WHO, UNICEF, USAID, BMGF, TATA Trust and UNFPA etc., and civil society organisations.

Welcome to the Not-So-Normal major season

first_imgWhen play gets underway on Thursday at TPC Harding Park it will end a Grand Slam hiatus that stretched 382 days. As the COVID-19 pandemic rocked the foundation of the golf world, the loudest headlines centered on the major championships. The U.S. Open and Masters were relocated to the fall with hopes of better days and the promise of a vaccine, while The Open Championship was pushed to 2021. The PGA Championship, which was originally scheduled for the second week of May, moved to the front of the line. The strangest of years will serve up the most surreal major championship since the U.S. Open was replaced in 1942 by the Hale America Open (which was won by Ben Hogan, and which historians argue should count toward the Hawk’s major championship haul), and it’s not just because it’s been more than a year since Shane Lowry won the game’s last major. “It’s odd, but the whole 2020 thing, very odd,” said Jason Day with a familiar redundancy of words. “We’ve got no fans out here. I mean, it’s just a whole kind of cluster, you know what I’m talking about. Just got to kind of just roll with it.” News & Opinion Monday Scramble: Top 10 favorites for the PGA BY Ryan Lavner  — August 2, 2020 at 9:40 AM It’s August, but the season’s first major is finally here. And with it comes a look at the top-10 favorites to hoist the Wanamaker Trophy on Sunday. Sure, let’s start with the lack of fans. It’s not as though players haven’t had enough time to get used to the silence that’s become the soundtrack to golf’s return, and Day’s “roll with it” mentality has been widely embraced. But this is a major. With San Francisco hosting its first major since 2012, this week’s PGA Championship was going to be a standing-room-only and raucous affair played on a public gem. Instead, it will be 156 players and caddies filling the void. The championship will still be played at TPC Harding Park, which has made cameos as a PGA Tour venue before but is hosting its first major, as a party with no invited guests. Since the Tour’s restart in early June it’s been a similar scene of empty fairways and peaceful fields and that’s been fine, but this was supposed to be different. “All these tournaments are created by their atmosphere and everyone has a different feel, and every tournament since coming back off the lockdown has felt the same, whether it’s the Colonial or the Travelers Championship or the Memorial or whatever it’s been,” Rory McIlroy said. “It’s the people and the atmosphere, that’s what makes a tournament and when you don’t have that, there’s nothing really for them to differentiate themselves. “Obviously, the courses are different, setups are a little different, but at the end of the day, it’s all sort of the same.” Harding Park will be ringed with predictably thick rough and the greens will deliver the required zip, the competition will be of championship quality and officials will still hand the Wanamaker Trophy to a smiling champion on Sunday. “It’s going to be weird to not have fans next week, but we’ve been playing with no fans for a while now so we’re kind of used to it,” Day said. “I think there’s going to be a little bit more pressure and intensity next week, I understand that, but I think a lot of the guys kind of understand what needs to be done.” The intensity will resemble something close to what we’ve become accustomed to but everything else will be different. And it’s just not the lack of fans that will fuel this week’s dystopian vibe. Harding Park has never hosted a major so there’s nothing to compare it to. When the U.S. Open is played in September at Winged Foot, also without fans, there will be a collective recall to help fill in the blanks. It remains to be seen if fans will return for November’s Masters but if not, well, it’s Augusta National and the cathedral creates its own audience. Three-peat? Can Koepka win another Wanamaker Trophy? Vintage footage of the 2009 Presidents Cup or ’15 WGC-Match Play at Harding Park won’t be enough to fill in those gaps. There’s also this week’s field. Major championships are defined by the depth of the tee sheet as the game’s best flock to compete for the ultimate prize, but since the Tour’s restart golf’s best have traveled well. After three months of quarantine the fields at both Colonial and Harbour Town were historically deep and even last week’s WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational assembled an impressive cast despite some high-profile no-shows, most notably Tiger Woods, Justin Rose and Adam Scott. The best example of this was last month’s Memorial, which drew an 803 strength of field, according to the world ranking. By comparison, last year’s PGA Championship had a 901 strength of field. For the vast viewing audience that has tuned in since golf’s restart, the relative rankings and eerie tranquility haven’t seemed to impact what’s become a television-only product. Those distinctions are left only to the players. “It’s not going to have as much of a major-like feel because of not having fans, so that’s something that’s going to be drastically different,” Justin Thomas said. “But in terms of a golf course setup and everything else, it will still be very major-like, I’m sure, so we’re all going to experience the same thing.” After a 382-day wait, even a “different” major is worth savoring.last_img read more

Dembski accurately formalized a filter we use so often that we’re like fish in the sea. We are unaware of it because it’s ubiquitous.
