first_img This week Georgia attorney general Sam Olens announced the execution date for death row inmate Warren Lee Hill, Jr.The circumstances surrounding Hill have garnered national and international attention because advocates and attorneys say Hill is mentally disabled and should not be executed.Hill’s quest for a new hearing now lies with the United States Supreme Court.But there’s another issue regarding the execution.2:03In the last legal round regarding Warren Lee Hill, Jr, the Eleventh U.S Circuit Court of Appeals denied his petition.That denial vacated the February 19th ruling that granted a conditional stay of execution.This is now the third execution date set for Hill.But what isn’t clear is why the state set the date when the Department of Corrections does not have in supply the execution drug, Pentobarbital.WABE legal analyst Page Pate says that’s baffling.“I don’t think we’ve ever encountered a situation like this before where they’ve set the date and then not have the drug available and then move the date after the date was set. So, somebody is going to move this date.”And that says Pate could be based on one of two actions.“Either it’s going to be the Supreme Court having to issue another stay in the case or the department of corrections and the attorney general’s office will recognize that they literally cannot carry out the execution without the required drug.”In an email to WABE, the Georgia department Corrections acknowledged they did not currently have Pentobarbital in supply, but expected to have the drug by July 15th, Warren Lee Hill’s scheduled execution date.When asked from where the drug was being procured, spokesperson Raschad Hollis replied,“That is all the information I can release at this time.”According to the Death Penalty Information Center, Georgia is one of seven states that have used a single-drug method for executions.And Georgia is among many other states that are having problems buying Pentobarbital.Many of the pharmaceutical companies that make the drug are overseas.Because those companies oppose the death penalty they have been refusing to sell to U.S prisons.But some states are turning to compounding pharmacies which will put together a single dose of the lethal injection drug.Just this year Governor Nathan Deal signed into a law that the identity of a manufacturer or supplier of the lethal injection drug would be kept secret.

first_img 2SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Credit unions should take note that credit card companies, issuers, and other industries are rallying around the tech giant’s long-awaited payments play.by. Marc RapportCredit unions weren’t left out of the party when Apple announced Tuesday the long-expected launch of the payments service that its CEO promises will change everything.In a media splash in its California hometown, the tech giant rolled out its new iPhone 6 models and Apple Watch, all supporting the new Apple Pay payments network.Apple Pay will include near-field communications and tokenization techniques to shield account info stored in its new devices. The big card brands — MasterCard, Visa, and American Express — already are along for the ride.In fact, Visa immediately followed Apple’s announcement with one of its own: the launch of the Visa Token Service. Here’s a simple description: “Visa Token Service replaces sensitive payment account information found on plastic cards with a digital account number or ‘token.’ Because tokens do not carry a consumer’s payment account details, such as the 16-digit account number, they can be safely stored by online merchants or on mobile devices to facilitate e-commerce and mobile payments.” Oh, and this service is available on all major platforms, which would include Android and Microsoft.MasterCard will be offering its own version, labeled MasterCard Digital Enablement Service. “This shift of every device becoming a shopping device is the biggest change we’ve seen in payments since the introduction of plastic, and yesterday’s news is a defining moment in the industry’s evolution,” MasterCard said in a release. continue reading »last_img read more

first_imgThe Indians lost out on relief pitcher Brad Ziegler, who is reportedly headed to Arizona. The news was first reported by Ken Rosenthal, and according to Jon Heyman, the Marlins will get pitching prospect Tommy Eveld in return.Earlier in the day, it was reported that the Indians expressed an interest in him, along with Derek Dietrich and Kyle Barraclough.The Indians are obviously in serious need of another reliever. Ziegler (1-5) has made 53 appearances this year with the Marlins. He has an ERA of 3.98 and has recorded 10 saves. In 52.0 innings pitched, he’s recorded 37 strikeouts.While Ziegler had a rough start to the season, he has been pretty dominant recently. Over his last 28 appearances, he has a 0.64 ERA, per Zach Buchanan of The Athletic.With Ziegler out of the picture, the Tribe will undoubtedly continue trying to pull strings to acquire another right-handed reliever that will add more depth to the bullpen.

first_imgNASHVILLE, TN (WLAF) – Wednesday morning’s state conference call was with Gov. Bill Lee and the Unified Command Group assigned to the Coronavirus pandemic.  The call also included the Commissioners of Finance, TEMA, Dept. of Health, National Guard and others.“The governor assured the legislators they are working on this 24/7 and getting all the information and data available throughout the nation and state. They are in the process of procurement of PPEs (personal protective equipment) for medical workers.  The governor stated that these are going to be very difficult times and hard choices to be made over the next few weeks,” said State Rep. Dennis Powers.Lee said he wanted to protect the liberties of individuals, but called on them to be responsible during this time. The goal is to slow the spread rapidly and deal with the after effects in a timely manner. He also wants to increase testing and stated that we are one of the top in the nation in testing and leading the South in that area, according to Powers.“The governor also wants to increase the capacity in three areas.  The first is supplies throughout the entire state, the second is personnel by postponing some medical procedures and acquiring furlough personnel and thirdly, obtaining alternate sites such as convention centers, hotels, etc. if needed for bed space.  He said we need to be prepared for increased need if it arises over the next few weeks based on models from across the country,” Powers said,“Over 27,000 tests had been performed and the current case count is over 2,200 positive with 23 deaths in Tennessee.  Every county health department in all 95 counties now has the ability to test.  The National Guard also has 35 rural test sites set up in the areas where they are needed most,” Dr. Lisa Piercy, commissioner of health, said.“We are staying ahead of the curve and all procurement issues are being handled through the local EMA director. They are also procuring additional hospital beds, ventilators, etc. based on models they are receiving, but those are changing hourly and daily and most models appear that the needs are going to increase,” Piercy said.Those on the call were also told the the guard has deployed 250 guardsmen and were going to increase that to 400, but were not taking any civilian medical workers out of the field.TEMA’s representative said, “We are working with local EMA’s using the systems to share info and data.  We are working to get ready for when the curve peaks, and we are also procuring medical equipment to be prepared.”The governor then answered questions the legislators had submitted,“What is the penalty, if any, for not adhering to the Executive Orders,” Powers said he asked.“There has not been a huge amount of enforcement, but any should be reported to local law enforcement,” Lee said in response.“Unemployment claims have gone from 2,000 a week to 70,000 a week, and the system has been overwhelmed with requests.  They are ramping up the efforts to handle all of these as fast as possible,” according  to Lee.“Supplies have already been shipped to all 95 counties, and they are being processed through the local EMA’s. Personal products are being horded by individuals, and that businesses are limiting amounts, but the hording is causing problems in the supply chains, said Lee.Ventilators have been supplied to all outpatient surgery centers, according to the governor.  He said, “We hope to get the rapid test kits in the next few days, but there is no guarantee on the shipment dates to the states.  The model from Vanderbilt will be here soon, but all the models we are looking at now show that there will be a surge in the next two to four weeks and we are procuring the beds and capacity to meet that crisis,” said Lee.“With regard to the stimulus bill, we know that small businesses are hurt the most, and I am going to get us the information on how it will be distributed to our state soon through, DHS, ECD and Workforce Development in the next few days.  It appears now that Tennessee will receive approximately $2.5 billion.  We are not sure of the timing on these funds, but more information will be coming soon,”  Lee said.    (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 04/01/2020-NOON) Share this:FacebookTwitterlast_img read more

first_imgThe HIV prevalence among women in the 30 to 34 age group showed an increase, from 39.6 percent in 2007 and 40.4 percent in 2008 to 41.5 percent in 2009. The department will observe this age group closely to assess what impact ARV treatment has. 12 November 2010 As in previous years, KwaZulu-Natal had the highest HIV prevalence, followed by Mpumalanga and Free State, with overall prevalence greater than 30 percent. The North West, Limpopo, Gauteng and Eastern Cape had prevalences of between 20 percent and 30 percent. The survey, released in Pretoria this week, shows that South Africa’s HIV prevalence has remained constant at around 29 percent over the past four years. Motsoaledi noted that KwaZulu-Natal, Limpopo and the Eastern Cape had the same socio-economic conditions when it came to HIV. “This is the most important group to provide evidence when monitoring new HIV infections,” Motsoaledi said. He added that it remained to be seen how far South Africa was from achieving the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) in this age group – the MDG target for 2015 is a reduction by 25 percent, to an HIV prevalence rate of 17.3 percent. Motsoaledi acknowledged that while he was satisfied that the government had done everything possible with regards to HIV/Aids intervention on paper, he was concerned as to whether it was being implemented on the ground. Socio-economic factors “We are reviewing this,” he said. The report, presented by Motsoaledi on Thursday, showed that HIV prevalence remained constant among 15- to 24-year-old pregnant women, with 21.7 percent in 2009. This was the same as the figure in 2008, which was a decline of 0.4 percent from 22.1 percent in 2007. The Northern Cape and Western Cape were the only provinces that had HIV prevalence rates below 20 percent. While South Africa’s latest antenatal prevalence survey shows a stabilisation in the country’s HIV prevalence rate since 2006, Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi wants more to be done to implement the government’s plans to combat the epidemic. The 2009 National Antenatal Sentinel HIV and Syphilis Prevalence survey was conducted in all nine provinces and 52 health districts, where 337 841 pregnant women booking into 1 457 public antenatal clinics for the first time were sampled during October.
