Noisy neighbours

first_imgNoisy neighbours Managing Regent Honeyeater habitat in the Capertee ValleyTablelands Telegraph – March 2021The Capertee Valley is a crucial breeding and foraging area for the critically endangered Regent Honeyeater (Anthochaera phrygia). Extensive habitat enhancement and re-creation works have occurred throughout the valley for more than 20 years.A key part of species recovery is to try and increase breeding success wherever possible. This is particularly important for a species as rare as the Regent Honeyeater, with as few as 300 individuals remaining. Enter Noisy Miner management.Whilst a native species, Noisy Miners have in some places become over-abundant. They’re known to be an aggressive species and can out-compete other native species. This aggression can also lead to ‘nest failure’, due to chasing away prospecting Regents and even destruction of Regent Honeyeater nests.The loss and fragmentation of woodland habitats across south-eastern Australia has enabled Noisy Miners to flourish. The impact they have on biodiversity is now well-documented and the impact they have on woodland birds is listed as a Key Threatening Process at both State and Federal levels.Managing Noisy Miners to deliver conservation outcomes is not new. It’s been undertaken in a number of locations, and has been used to assist in the recovery of a number of species. In the context of the Regent Honeyeater, reduction work commenced in the Capertee Valley in 2016 by BirdLife Australia, funded by the NSW government’s Saving Our Species Program. Since that time several other programs have been conducted by the Australian National University and NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service.Because of the success of Noisy Miner management in improving habitat for Regent Honeyeaters, additional works are planned. Future culling in the Capertee Valley is proposed to occur at targeted locations, largely dictated by known Regent Honeyeater breeding sites and other areas where it is assumed that Noisy Miners enter the valley (e.g. near Mount Marsden). BirdLife Australia has received funding from the federal government’s bushfire relief program to commence culls around Mount Marsden in autumn 2021. /Public Release.

Challenge To Georgia Election System Faces First Court Test

first_img ‘It’s Fractured’: Georgia Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan On Healing Republican Party Related Stories Add to My List In My List For Whom The Bell Rings Legal Advocate Discusses Medical Abuse At Shut Down Georgia ICE Facility A sweeping lawsuit challenging the way Georgia elections are run is being put to its initial test Monday as state election officials try to persuade a federal judge to toss it out.The lawsuit was filed weeks after Republican Brian Kemp narrowly beat Democrat Stacey Abrams, in a governor’s race that focused national scrutiny on Georgia’s outdated voting machines and on allegations of voter suppression by Kemp, who was the state’s top election official during the race.Kemp has adamantly denied allegations of wrongdoing. He signed legislation earlier this month that provides specifications for a new voting system, which the current secretary of state, Brad Raffensperger, says he’ll implement in time for the 2020 election cycle.The lawsuit accuses the secretary of state and election board members of mismanaging the 2018 election in ways that deprived some citizens, particularly low-income people and minorities, of their constitutional right to vote. It seeks substantial reforms and asks that Georgia be required to get a federal judge’s approval before changing voting rules.The suit was filed by Fair Fight Action, an organization founded by Abrams, and Care in Action Georgia, a nonprofit that advocates for domestic workers. Several churches, including Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, the spiritual home of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., joined the suit in February.They allege that November’s vote was marred by problems including long waits at polling places, absentee ballots that weren’t received or weren’t counted, missing or erroneous voter registration records, malfunctioning voting machines and poorly trained poll workers.Lawyers for the state argue that allegations of “unrelated actions by mostly local officials” don’t amount to constitutional violations requiring judicial intervention. They also said election law should be set by lawmakers, not the courts.U.S. District Judge Steve Jones instructed both sides to be prepared at Monday’s hearing to talk about whether Fair Fight Action and the other organizations are entitled to bring the suit.Lawyers for the state argue the organizations base their arguments on speculation and haven’t demonstrated any harm they have suffered for which the court could provide a remedy.The organizations, which say they have a shared goal of “protecting Georgians’ right to vote,” have argued in court filings that state election officials’ wrongdoing “will require them to spend additional resources on activities such as educating and assisting voters to avoid the voter suppression and disenfranchisement” alleged in the lawsuit.But that simply amounts to the organizations carrying out their declared missions, state lawyers argue.“Doing the job one sets out to do is not an injury — it is a purpose, and it does not establish standing,” state lawyers wrote in a filing.Jones also wants the parties to address the effect of the new voting system legislation Kemp signed. The law authorizes the purchase of ballot-marking machines that print a paper ballot, tweaks some voter eligibility verification and voter roll maintenance practices and clarifies rules for closing or moving polling places.State lawyers argue the new law makes significant changes that render some of the issues raised in the lawsuit irrelevant and contributes to the hypothetical nature of others.But the organizations argue the legislation doesn’t go far enough to eliminate barriers to voter registration, adequately protect against polling place closure or provide for secure and reliable voting machines. The organizations would still have to work to ensure people are not disenfranchised by state election officials, they argue.Finally, the judge wants the parties to discuss whether election officials in each of the state’s 159 counties need to be included as defendants.Lawyers for the state have argued that local officials manage and administer elections, and that it’s therefore baseless to allege that state officials engaged in “gross mismanagement” of last year’s election. Concerns should be addressed to local officials, they say.The plaintiffs counter that state law empowers state election officials exercise their “oversight authority to set uniform standards across the state, to train, and to investigate failures of local elections officials.”This case is most sweeping of several challenges to Georgia’s elections system. U.S. District Judge Amy Totenberg is presiding over a separate lawsuit that says the state’s voting machines are unlawful and seeks statewide implementation of hand-marked paper ballots.

Ameriprise to buy BMO asset management unit

And while increased provisions to protect against the possibility of rising defaults have weighed on overall earnings, the lender’s North American personal and commercial banking business has been helped by rising deposits and shrinking costs.[More: Slimmed down 2020 comp for LPL, Ameriprise CEOs] Why Tony Robbins, tax shelters and financial advisers don’t mix 2 4 House committee poised to advance SECURE 2.0 retirement savings bill The sale also includes the opportunity for some U.S. clients to move to Ameriprise’s Columbia Threadneedle Investments unit, subject to their consent, Toronto-based Bank of Montreal said in a statement Monday.White, who took the reins of Canada’s fourth-largest lender in 2017, said in January that BMO was looking to “harvest investments” in businesses where the returns weren’t good enough or where the bank didn’t see a path to a leadership position, and then redeploy that capital toward better opportunities. Increased competition on fees and a shift to passively managed investments have hampered profitability in the fund industry, prompting banks including Societe Generale and Wells Fargo & Co. to sell their asset-management operations.Bloomberg News reported in October that BMO was exploring options for its asset-management operations, including seeking a buyer for parts of the business outside its home market.Ameriprise said in a separate statement that the deal, expected to close in the fourth quarter, will give it an additional $124 billion of assets under management in Europe, bringing its total AUM to more than $1.2 trillion. The acquisition will accelerate Ameriprise’s strategy of growing its fee-based businesses and boost the overall contribution from wealth and asset management, the company said.

Investors advised by J.P. Morgan purchase stake in Sonnedix Group

first_imgInvestors advised by J.P. Morgan purchase stake in Sonnedix GroupThe investors acquired all of the outstanding shares in Sonnedix, less than two years after J.P. Morgan partnered with the solar power producer to pursue opportunities in the global solar market. September 1, 2016 Sam Pothecary Finance Markets Markets & Policy Share Independent solar power producer Sonnedix Group has significantly increased its reach in the global PV market over the last couple of years, partly due to a partnership it sprung up with J.P. Morgan Asset Management in December 2014. That partnership is likely to be a key driver for the recent investment in the company, made by institutional investors that are advised by J.P. Morgan.The original joint venture platform between the two parties, Sonnedix Power Holdings, was set up to “pursue opportunities in the attractive, rapidly expanding global solar market.” When the partnership was first announced, Sonnedix had an operating capacity of 117 MW of solar PV, which has since more than tripled to 353 MW, with the acquisition of solar plants across the globe, notably in Europe, Japan and Latin America.The value of the investment has not been disclosed, but it shows confidence in the active solar company, that currently has a pipeline of PV projects totaling approximately 600 MW in construction and pre-construction stages.“This increased commitment by J.P. Morgan’s clients marks a new phase of growth in Sonnedix’s evolution,” commented Sonnedix’s CEO Andreas Mustad. “It’s an exciting time for the industry – as this deal shows, institutional investors are increasingly recognizing the stability and value of solar generating assets, which is fueling increased investment in the sector, leading to the large scale adoption of the solar solution worldwide.”“Over the past two years we’ve seen the Sonnedix strategic platform deliver dramatic growth, more than tripling its operating capacity and delivering quality projects and acquisitions across many jurisdictions,” added Chief Investment Officer of OECD Infrastructure at J.P. Morgan Asset Management Matthew LeBlanc. “With the declining cost of implementation, coupled with the strong appetite for renewables as an asset class, the global Sonnedix platform is well positioned to continue its growth strategy.”This content is protected by copyright and may not be reused.

Guns, tactical gear seized from home of cook who threatened mass shooting at Calif. Marriott

first_imgLong Beach Police Department(LONG BEACH, Calif.) — Police seized multiple guns, hundreds of rounds of ammunition and tactical gear from the home of a 37-year-old California man who allegedly threatened coworkers and guests at the hotel where he worked as a cook.A Long Beach Marriott colleague of Rodolfo Montoya’s contacted the Long Beach Police Department on Monday after Montoya threatened to carry out a mass shooting there.A search of Montoya’s Huntington Beach home on Tuesday revealed the weapons cache, which included high-capacity magazines and assault rifles, all of which are illegal to possess in California.Montoya has been charged with manufacturing and distributing assault weapons, possession of an assault weapon and making a criminal threat, the LBPD said in a statement on Wednesday. He’s being held on $500,000 bail at the city jail in Long Beach.“In recent months, we have seen several tragic incidents that have resulted in many lives lost,” Police Chief Robert G. Luna said in the statement. “The witnesses who came forward and the diligence of our employees involved in this investigation very likely prevented a threat of violence and saved many lives.”Luna thanked the hotel employee for coming forward with the information.“This incident,” Luna added, “is excellent example of the ‘See Something, Say Something’ philosophy and how critical it is to report suspicious activity to law enforcement.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
