Next Sunday, the 4th of December, the 144MHz AFS Contest runs from 1000 to 1400UTC. Using all modes, the exchange is signal report, serial number and locator. Now the radio propagation report, compiled by G0KYA, G3YLA, and G4BAO on Friday 25th November 2022 We dodged a bullet last week when a large coronal hole failed to produce a geomagnetic disturbance. Despite many predictions that we could expect an upturn in the Kp index, it looks like the solar wind missed the Earth, probably because the hole was too low in the Sun's southern hemisphere. As a result the Kp index never went higher than 4, actually 3.67 globally, and things remained calm. This was good news for HF, although a low solar flux index below 120 all week was nothing to get excited about. At the same time, the improvement in low-band conditions, as we head into late Autumn, is making up for it. Top Band contacts have been recorded with 3B8 Mauritius, and Peter, G3PHO has even made it into the USA in the late afternoon on 160m FT8. So, if you've never worked much on Top Band, and you have the antenna for it, give it a try. Failing that, try the top end of 80m SSB around sunrise in the UK for contacts with the USA. Next week, NOAA predicts that the solar flux index will remain around the 120-125 mark. The good news is that there are no large coronal holes currently visible and there have only been minor C-class flares with CMEs that have not been Earth-directed, so geomagnetic conditions are likely to be good. That is, at least until the 1st of December when we have a predicted Kp index of four, which may disrupt contacts mainly on polar paths. This is good news for this weekend's CQ Worldwide CW contest, which is a great opportunity for you to up your country totals or for your Worked All States award. Now a footnote for those occasions when the propquest.co.uk graphs are not updating. It can be a local effect at one of the stations, such as Chilton, which has been offline recently. Usually selecting one of the tick boxes in the top right of the graphs will show Fairford or Dourbes when available. However, last week and maybe still, we have a complete blank for all three ionosonde station plots, which is much more likely to be a server issue in the States where the data is hosted. You can check the Propquest server is working by selecting the “Archive” or “Averages” tabs. In any event, the ionosonde data plots will come back automatically once any issues have been resolved. And now the VHF and up propagation news The unsettled spell of weather continues into the first half of next week so could provide some further rain scatter opportunities on the GHz Bands. The broad south-westerly pattern may well switch over to an easterly after midweek as high pressure builds across Scotland. This could bring a return of Tropo for some parts, but looks a bit weak, while the south will continue to be affected by low-pressure systems. It will feel colder, with some models hinting at wintry conditions being a possibility, so wrap up well if you plan to do any portable operation! The Alpha Monocerotids meteor shower noted last week is over but the small November Orionids, active until the 6th of December, reaches its peak on Monday the 28th. Get ready for the big Geminids meteor shower in December. It commences on the 4th reaching a ZHR of over 100 between the 14th and 15th. More about this closer to the shower peak. Moon declination is increasing again and goes positive on Friday. So Moon windows will lengthen and zenith angles will increase. Path losses, on the other hand, start to increase again this week after last Friday's perigee. We have to wait until mid-2026 before maximum declination coincides with the lowest path loss, but we are moving in that direction again. 144MHz sky noise is low all week, not getting above 300 Kelvin until next Sunday. And that's all from the propagation team this week.

GB2RS News Sunday the 20th of November 2022 The news headlines: December is YOTA Month Transatlantic Centenary Tests 2022 RSGB Construction Competition   December is Youngsters On The Air month. This is an opportunity for individuals, clubs, groups and schools to run an amateur radio station with the aim of getting youngsters active on the air. The RSGB is inviting applications to host the special callsign GB22YOTA. To register your interest email Jamie, M0SDV at yota.month@rsgb.org.uk with details of the activity you are planning. Please include your name, organisation and the callsign of the Full licensee who will host the activation. To see the GB22YOTA activation schedule, visit the GB22YOTA page at qrz.com. The RSGB is hosting the Transatlantic Centenary Tests 2022 on the HF bands for the month of December. Unlike those of the 1920s, which consisted of one-way communication, this event will encourage worldwide two-way communication with UK and Crown Dependency stations. There will be a series of awards available for making QSOs with those who are activating historic RSGB callsigns. The Club Log team has kindly agreed to provide the supporting infrastructure for this. The Society is looking for RSGB members to take part and make this historic event a success. You can read more on page 54 of the December RadCom and be inspired by the RSGB Convention Transatlantic Test presentation on the RSGB YouTube channel. To find out how to take part, go to rsgb.org/tct Do you enjoy amateur radio construction? Would you like to try making something for the first time? The RSGB's Construction Competition welcomes entries in four categories – Beginners, Construction Excellence, Innovation, and Software. Special recognition will be given to entries submitted by radio amateurs under the age of 24, and to those who have just gained their Foundation licence. A cash prize will be awarded for the winner of each section, with a bonus for the overall winner who will also be declared the winner of the Pat Hawker G3VA Trophy. The deadline for entries is 1 March 2023 so you have plenty of time to construct something during the long winter evenings. To find out more, including how to enter, see the full details on the RSGB website at rsgb.org/construction-competition Most of you will have experienced RF interference problems of one sort or another over the years. In this world of advanced digital technology and increasing wireless connectivity, the probability of interference is high and increasing rapidly. This is giving rise to an ever-increasing pollution of the radio spectrum which is threatening all wireless communication. To counter these problems, the RSGB EMC Committee makes the relevant authorities aware of issues by taking measurements and surveying any available documents and reports. The committee needs volunteers to help with that task. Deep technical knowledge or experience in EMC work is not necessary, but ideally, candidates should have a good understanding of radio. If you are an RSGB member and would like to help, please contact emc.chairman@rsgb.org.uk The RSGB's National Radio Centre at Bletchley Park will be closed from Tuesday the 22nd of November until Friday the 25th of November for the upgrading of essential equipment and the installation of a new fire alarm system.

Using CW only on the 160 to 10m bands, where contesting is permitted, the exchange is signal report and CQ Zone. Now the radio propagation report, compiled by G0KYA, G3YLA, and G4BAO on Friday the 18th of November 2022. The good HF conditions continued last week with a low Kp index and a reasonable solar flux. But is that all about to change? The problem is a large coronal hole in the Sun's southern hemisphere, which became geoeffective on Thursday. The hole is at mid-latitude, so is not completely in line with Earth. But its large size means that we could see a strong solar wind, which may hit the Earth this weekend, potentially pushing the Kp index up for a couple of days at least. Sunspots have been adequate rather than outstanding. The main active groups have now rotated out of view, but there are some new ones just appearing over the Sun's limb. The HF bands have been excellent and many newer amateurs have had their first taste of 10m in full flow. Next week NOAA predicts that the solar flux index could decline to the range 105-115. The Kp index is predicted to rise to four at least until the 22nd. We may then get respite for a day or two before it rises again to three or four. In other words, we have probably seen the best of the settled HF conditions for a while. Just what effect the enhanced solar wind and increased Kp index this weekend will have on maximum usable frequencies is hard to predict. Typically, an increased Kp index can result in reduced MUFs, but whether we will see it impact 10 metres, especially with the predicted lower SFI, we will just have to wait and see. And now the VHF and up propagation news After last weekend's excellent tropo, with 24GHz propagation from the South East of England to the near continent, we now have a seemingly never-ending period of unsettled weather continuing through the coming week. This is driven by a strong jet stream flow across the Atlantic. Since it's a low pressure and rain scatter period once again, it's worth a reminder that, although we are way out of season with regards to Sporadic-E, it can still be seen on the foEs graphs on the Propquest.co.uk website and can be particularly useful for the LF bands. Focusing back on VHF and above, the prevalence of low pressure during the week suggests Tropo is unlikely to entertain us. The only modes remaining to discuss are meteor scatter as we slowly fade from the peak of the Leonids, and finally the prospect of a random aurora if we have further disturbed solar conditions. This week's active meteor showers are the Alpha Monocerotids which are active until November the 25th and reach a low ZHR maximum on Monday the 21st of November. Also, the November Orionids, are active until December the 6th but don't peak until the 28th. Moon declination went negative on Saturday so Moon windows will shorten and zenith angles decrease. Path losses are still low but with perigee on Friday, path losses will fall all week. 144MHz sky noise slowly increases, reaching a maximum of over 2,500 Kelvin on Friday. And that's all from the propagation team this week.

Lösungen für die Highstreet – warum die Bereiche Transaktion und Vermietung jetzt eng zusammenarbeiten müssenZur Realität unserer Highstreets gehört beides: leer stehende Ladenzeilen genauso wie modern konzipierte Stores, vor denen die Kunden Schlange stehen. Der Strukturwandel, der hinter diesen Entwicklungen steht, ist nicht nur für die Vielseitigkeit unserer Innenstädte hochrelevant, sondern auch aus Investmentsicht. Aktuell sind zwar die Transaktionszahlen noch niedrig, doch der Markt steht in den Startlöchern. Aufgrund der unterschiedlichen Entwicklung der verschiedenen Handelssegmente muss die Nachhaltigkeit der Mieten und die Stabilität der Händler genauestens geprüft werden – ansonsten sind die Investmentrisiken zu hoch.

Esta es la síntesis informativa del jueves 10 de noviembre de 2022: - El control del Senado de Estados Unidos pendía de un hilo mientras los republicanos se acercaban a asegurar la mayoría en la Cámara de Representantes el miércoles, un día después de que los demócratas superaran las expectativas y evitaran una "ola roja" republicana en las elecciones de mitad de período. Hablando en una conferencia de prensa en la Casa Blanca, el presidente Joe Biden prometió trabajar con los republicanos y dijo que entendía que los votantes están frustrados a pesar de la campaña sorprendentemente competitiva de los demócratas. “Creo que el pueblo estadounidense ha dejado en claro que espera que los republicanos también estén preparados para trabajar conmigo”, dijo Biden. También reiteró su intención de postularse para la reelección en 2024 y dijo que tomaría una decisión final a principios del próximo año. Un funcionario de la Casa Blanca dijo que Biden habló por teléfono el miércoles con el líder republicano de la Cámara, Kevin McCarthy, quien sería el principal candidato a presidente de la Cámara si los republicanos ganan la mayoría. La elección no alcanzó la victoria arrolladora que buscaban los republicanos, ya que los demócratas eludieron el tipo de dura derrota a mitad de período que a menudo afecta a los presidentes en ejercicio de cualquier partido. Los resultados sugirieron que los votantes estaban castigando a Biden por presidir una economía afectada por la inflación más pronunciada en 40 años con un 8,2 por ciento, al tiempo que criticaron los esfuerzos republicanos para prohibir el aborto y sembraron dudas sobre el proceso de conteo de votos de la nación. Los malos desempeños de algunos candidatos respaldados por Donald Trump, indicaron agotamiento con el tipo de caos fomentado por el expresidente republicano, lo que generó dudas sobre la viabilidad de su posible candidatura a la Casa Blanca en 2024.

Esta es la síntesis informativa del viernes 21 de octubre de 2022: Un juez federal desestimó el jueves un esfuerzo de seis estados liderados por republicanos para bloquear el plan de la administración Biden de perdonar la deuda de préstamos estudiantiles a decenas de millones de estadounidenses. El juez federal de distrito Henry Autrey en St. Louis escribió que debido a que los seis estados (Nebraska, Missouri, Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas y Carolina del Sur) no lograron establecer que tenían legitimación activa, “la corte carece de jurisdicción para reconocer este caso”. Suzanne Gage, portavoz del fiscal general de Nebraska, Doug Peterson, dijo que los estados apelarán. El presidente demócrata Joe Biden anunció en agosto que su administración cancelaría hasta $20,000 en deuda educativa para un gran número de prestatarios. El anuncio se convirtió de inmediato en un tema político importante antes de las elecciones intermedias de noviembre. La demanda de los estados es una de las pocas que se han presentado. Abogados conservadores, legisladores republicanos y grupos orientados a los negocios han afirmado que Biden se excedió en su autoridad al tomar una medida tan radical sin el consentimiento del Congreso. Lo llamaron un obsequio injusto del gobierno para personas relativamente ricas a expensas de los contribuyentes que no cursaron estudios superiores. Muchos legisladores demócratas que enfrentan duras contiendas de reelección se han distanciado del plan. FUENTE: AP El Alcalde de Holyoke, Joshua García, junto con la Representante estatal, Pat Duffy, el Director de Planificación y Desarrollo Económico de la Ciudad de Holyoke, Aaron Vega y la directora ejecutiva de la Cámara de Comercio de Greater Holyoke, Jordan Hart, se unieron al anuncio y lanzamiento de financiación colectiva el jueves, relacionado con un edificio comprado a la ciudad de Holyoke para convertirse en el nuevo hogar de la empresa local Paper City Clothing Company. Luego de un proceso de licitación competitivo, la Ciudad de Holyoke seleccionó a Paper City Clothing Company como compradora para el inmueble ubicado en 144 High Street, un edificio de uso mixto de 5,000 pies cuadrados ubicado en el extremo norte de High Street. Después de estar abandonado durante años, 144 High Street está en mal estado; no tiene servicios públicos en funcionamiento y sufrió daños graves debido a un techo derrumbado. Peña, el propietario de Paper City Clothing Company, se comprometió: “Antes del abandono y posterior adquisición por parte de la Ciudad, 144 High Street había sido propiedad de los artistas locales Bernard y Joan Hamel, quienes operaron una galería de bellas artes y una tienda de marcos allí durante décadas. Nos sentimos honrados de revivir este edificio histórico con historia artística para el beneficio de la comunidad de Holyoke de hoy. No hay duda de que la renovación de este edificio es el mayor desafío al que nos hemos enfrentado hasta ahora, pero no es nada que no podamos manejar, siempre y cuando trabajemos como siempre lo hemos hecho: ¡Construyendo con nuestra comunidad!”. La renovación comenzó este verano y para apoyar el proceso continuo de renovación, hay una campaña de financiación colectiva de Patronicity del 20 de octubre al 17 de noviembre de 2022. Se llevó a cabo un evento para celebrar, este anuncio y lanzamiento, el cual incluyó la presentación de aun cortometraje dirigido por Khalif Neville, que cuenta la historia de esta asociación y la visión para catalizar y apoyar un crecimiento más sostenible para el centro de Holyoke.

Esta es la síntesis informativa del martes 18 de octubre de 2022: El presidente Joe Biden inició oficialmente el lunes el proceso de solicitud de su programa de cancelación de deuda estudiantil y anunció que 8 millones de prestatarios ya habían solicitado alivio de préstamos durante el período de lanzamiento suave del gobierno federal durante el fin de semana. Animó a las decenas de millones elegibles para un posible alivio a visitar studentaid.gov y promocionó el formulario de solicitud que, según el presidente, tardaría menos de cinco minutos en completarse. Una versión temprana de "lanzamiento beta" del formulario en línea lanzado el viernes por la noche manejó el flujo inicial de solicitudes "sin fallas ni dificultades", dijo Biden. La cantidad de prestatarios que solicitaron durante el período de prueba ya asciende a más de una cuarta parte de la cantidad total de solicitantes que la administración había proyectado que enviarían formularios, lo que subraya la popularidad del programa y el entusiasmo de los prestatarios por recibir el alivio de la deuda. Unos 8 millones de prestatarios que ya tienen información de ingresos en los archivos del Departamento de Educación verían cancelada su deuda sin presentar una solicitud. El plan de Biden exige $10,000 en la cancelación de la deuda estudiantil federal para aquellos con ingresos inferiores a $125,000 al año, u hogares que ganan menos de $250,000 al año. Aquellos que recibieron becas federales Pell para asistir a la universidad son elegibles para $10,000 adicionales. El plan hace que 20 millones sean elegibles para borrar por completo su deuda estudiantil federal. La administración de Biden lo ha promocionado como una aplicación "simple y directa". Solicita el nombre del prestatario, número de Seguro Social, información de contacto y fecha de nacimiento. No requiere información de ingresos, pero pide a los usuarios que marquen una casilla que certifique que son elegibles según los límites de ingresos del programa. Esa información se comparará con los registros del Departamento de Educación para ayudar a identificar a los solicitantes que probablemente excedan los límites de ingresos, dice la administración. A esas personas se les pedirá más información para comprobar sus ingresos. Una vez que el Departamento de Educación comience a procesar las solicitudes, los prestatarios deben esperar ver su deuda condonada en cuatro a seis semanas, dicen los funcionarios. La mayoría de las solicitudes enviadas a mediados de noviembre se procesarán antes del 1 de enero, el día en que se reanudarán los pagos de préstamos federales para estudiantes después de haber sido pausados ​​durante la pandemia.

Steve Price: More than 7000 Victorian homes could be flooded as danger remains

More than 7000 homes and businesses in Victoria's north could soon be flooded as the state's historic emergency event continues. Shepparton residents are continuing to be bombarded with flood water, while other areas start the clean up process following last week's monster deluge. The Goulburn River may peak near 12.1m later on Monday morning, potentially putting 7300 homes and businesses in Shepparton, Mooroopna and Kialla in danger of being surrounded or filled with flood water. Victorian Emergency management commissioner Andrew Crisp said they received 56 requests for rescues in those areas overnight on Sunday, with some yet to be undertaken. Bureau of Metrology meteorologist Dean Narramore said several river catchments are expected to peaked on Monday. “On the Avoca River around the Charlton area, it looks like will peak around 8m today with major floods that will cause some issues there today,” he told the ABC. “Moving further eastwards, we're looking at major flooding continuing and it will for a number of days on the Campaspe and the Goulburn River. “We'll see the floodwaters peak in Echuca and Moama, similar to the 1993 levels. “Shepparton as well looking to peak sometime later today or into tonight. Similar to the levels of 1974, so it's going a long way back. “There's a massive amount of water on the Goulburn right now and that all feeds into the Murray River, so we're concerned for Echuca and Moama in the coming days.” But he warned more heavy rainfall has been “unfortunately” forecast for later in the week, with up to 25mm potentially hitting already flood-affected areas like Echuca and Shepparton. “Not good news for our flood-affected areas ... looking at widespread 25-50mm falls over much of inland New South Wales, northern Victoria and Queensland,” Mr Narramore said. “This is a lot less than what we saw, but with everything now so wet and saturated, this is going to lead to renewed river level rises on many of our already flooded rivers. “Particularly as we get in towards that Thursday and Friday time frame … we could see quite a few severe thunderstorms through inland areas across multiple days later this week and into the weekend.” Mr Narramore also said “it could be a while” until the rain lets up for residents in Australia's east. “It looks like we will get a brief break over the weekend Sunday and Monday, but there is another system hot on its heels as we move into early parts of next week,” he told The Today Show. “ This wet pattern continues to bring widespread flooding across eastern Australia.” Federal Emergency Management Minister Murray Watt said Victoria was facing a “a very serious situation”. “The reports I‘m getting, we could be looking at up to 9000 homes inundated in northern Victoria and potentially close to about 34,000 homes in Victoria either inundated or isolated,” he told the ABC. Mr Crisp said around 300 to 400 homes have inundated with flood water in Echuca, while about 800 to 900 have been affected in Rochester. “I had the opportunity to fly over Rochester yesterday. To be frank, it‘s depressing, there's water everywhere,” he told the ABC. “We'll work with, stand with, and support the community of Rochester and we'll be doing everything we can to help them get back on their feet.” On Saturday morning, a respected member of the Rochester community sadly lost his life in his backyard during the relentless weather event. Kevin Wills, 71, who was born in the Victorian town lived with his wife on High Street for years, with the community heartbroken at the loss. Mr Wills' wife was also found by emergency services trapped at the property but was rescued safely. Victoria SES has issued more than 60 flood warnings across the state, more than 100 Australian Defence Force personnel have been deployed, while around 120 schools and 100 early learning centres are closed on Monday. The state and federal governments have prepared the Centre for National Resilience in Mickleham to provide crisis care for those needing accommodation. The Mickleham facility will provide 250 beds from Tuesday next week for people who have lost their homes in the floods. Residents will also receive food and other support services at the site, as well as remotely. The Commonwealth built and owned Mickleham location recently closed as a quarantine hub, allowing it to now open its doors to flood victims. Emergency Management Victoria, along with Emergency Recovery Victoria and Covid-19 Quarantine Victoria, are working collaboratively to set the facility up, using the existing quarantine staff and service providers to get support to those who need it quickly. The centre will act as a hub, as residents will be supplied with free regular transport on a provided shuttle bus to the local train station and shopping centre. Every room provided to those in need will hold toiletries and necessities, and people will be provided with three meals per day. Local charities are working to provide items that families may have had to leave behind in the floods, such as clothing. The federal government also made disaster assistance payments available for 44 flood affected areas across Victoria, NSW and Tasmania. In Victoria those 23 local government areas are: Alpine Benalla Buloke Campaspe Central Goldfields Corangamite Gannawarra Greater Bendigo Greater Shepparton Hepburn Horsham Loddon Macedon Ranges Mansfield Maribyrnong Mitchell Shire Moira Moonee Valley Murrindindi Northern Grampians Pyrenees Strathbogie Wangaratta One-off Australian Government Disaster Recovery Payments are also available in Campaspe, Greater Shepparton, Maribyrnong, Mitchell and Strathbogie. There is $1000 per adult and $400 per child in recognition of the significant losses people in those areas have experienced due to the floods. The state government also revealed on Sunday that Melbourne Water will conduct a review into the 3m floodwater wall around Flemington Racecourse. It will investigate claims from frustrated residents that the racecourse managed to avoid the severe flooding because the wall pushed water into the surrounding Maribyrnong area. “Melbourne Water will conduct a thorough review of this flood event and any impact that wall had on this flood event,” Mr Andrews said. “And they'll do that work at arm's length from the government and report progress.” Racing Victoria chief executive Andrew Jones told Channel 9 over the weekend the well had created “unintended consequences”. “The VRC took steps to flood-protect its property 15 years ago, which it's entitled to do. That's obviously had unintended consequences for neighbouring residents,” he said. “Obviously there was no intention of the VRC to cause harm. They tried to protect the spring carnival and the Melbourne Cup Carnival, which is a massively important part of Victorian life and the Victorian economy, so I think this is an unintended consequence.” FLOOD WARNINGS Major Flood Warning for the Avoca River Major Flood Warning for the Broken River Major Flood Warning for the Campaspe River Major Flood Warning for the Goulburn River Major Flood Warning for the Loddon River Major Flood Warning for the Seven and Castle Creeks Major Flood Warning for the Wimmera River Moderate Flood Warning for the Barwon River Moderate Flood Warning for the Ovens and King Rivers EMERGENCY WARNINGS Echuca and Echuca Village (Evacuate Immediately) Bunbartha (Evacuate Immediately) Charlton (Evacuate Immediately) Shepparton, Mooroopna, Orrvale, Murchison, Kialla West (Too Late to Leave) Rochester (Move to Higher Ground) Campaspe River downstream of Rochester (Move to Higher Ground) Nanneella, Fairy Dell, Koyuga and Kanyapella South (Move to Higher Ground) Campaspe River Lake Eppalock to Barnadown (Move to Higher Ground) Loddon River Loddon Weir to Kerang (Move to Higher Ground) - by Hamish Spence and Isabel McMillan, news.com.auSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Esta es la síntesis informativa del viernes 14 de octubre de 2022: El comité del 6 de enero de la Cámara de Representantes votó unánimemente el jueves para citar al expresidente Donald Trump, exigiendo su testimonio personal al revelar un nuevo video sorprendente de asesores cercanos que describen su plan de varias partes para anular su derrota electoral de 2020 que condujo al feroz ataque de sus partidarios contra el Capitolio de los Estados Unidos. Con mensajes alarmantes del Servicio Secreto de EEUU advirtiendo sobre la violencia y un nuevo y vívido video de la presidenta de la Cámara de Representantes, Nancy Pelosi, y otros líderes del Congreso pidiendo ayuda, el panel mostró la cruda desesperación en el Capitolio. Usando un lenguaje que se ve con frecuencia en las acusaciones penales, el panel dijo que Trump había actuado de manera “premeditada” antes del 6 de enero de 2021, a pesar de que innumerables ayudantes y funcionarios le dijeron que había perdido. Es casi seguro que Trump rechazará la citación y se negará a testificar. En su medio de comunicación social, criticó a los miembros por no preguntarle antes, aunque no dijo que habría cumplido y llamó al panel "un fracaso total". “Debemos buscar el testimonio bajo juramento del jugador central del 6 de enero”, dijo la representante republicana Liz Cheney de Wyoming, vicepresidenta del comité, antes de la votación. En la décima sesión pública del comité, apenas unas semanas antes de las elecciones legislativas de mitad de mandato, el panel resumió la "asombrosa traición" de Trump a su juramento del cargo, como dijo el presidente Bennie Thompson, y describió el intento sin precedentes del expresidente de impedir que el Congreso certificara la victoria del demócrata Joe Biden. Si bien el esfuerzo por citar a Trump puede languidecer, más un guiño a la historia que una citación efectiva, el comité ha dejado en claro que está considerando enviar sus hallazgos en una remisión penal al Departamento de Justicia. En mensajes del Servicio Secreto nunca antes vistos, el panel produjo evidencia de que los grupos extremistas proporcionaron el músculo en la lucha por la presidencia de Trump, planeando semanas antes del ataque enviar una fuerza violenta a Washington. FUENTE: AP - La ciudad de Holyoke verá uno de sus días más activos en los últimos años con la celebración de varios eventos ocurriendo el sábado 15 de octubre.

Esta es la síntesis informativa del lunes 3 de octbre de 2022: - Más de 100,000 usuarios en Puerto Rico todavía esperan que se restablezca la energía eléctrica dos semanas después de que el huracán Fiona arrojara cantidades históricas de lluvia y dejara sin electricidad a toda la isla. Fiona tocó tierra en el suroeste de Puerto Rico el 18 de septiembre como una tormenta de categoría 1. La mayoría de los cortes restantes se encuentran en los lados oeste y sur de la isla, según LUMA Energy, la compañía que opera la infraestructura eléctrica de la isla. La tormenta dejó caer más de 30 pulgadas de lluvia en algunas áreas, provocando inundaciones y deslizamientos de tierra que dañaron caminos y puentes hacia las montañas de Puerto Rico. Muchos residentes quedaron varados en pequeños pueblos sin acceso a servicios públicos, alimentos o atención médica. Al menos 13 personas han muerto en relación con la tormenta, según el Departamento de Salud de Puerto Rico. Otras 12 muertes están bajo investigación. La tormenta cortó el suministro eléctrico a todos los casi 1,5 millones de clientes de electricidad de la isla. Cientos de miles también perdieron el acceso al servicio de agua. Dos semanas después, el 91% de los clientes han recuperado la energía, informó LUMA el domingo. La energía eléctrica ha vuelto a la gran mayoría de los hogares de los municipios del norte y noreste de Puerto Rico, incluida el area metro alrededor de San Juan. Pero casi un tercio de los clientes de la región occidental de la isla seguían sin electricidad, junto con alrededor del 17% de los clientes de los municipios de la costa sur. La compañía había estimado previamente que la energía se restablecerá al 90% de los clientes en esas regiones para el jueves. LUMA ha restablecido el servicio a todos los hospitales de Puerto Rico y a partir del sábado, al 94% de las instalaciones de operaciones de agua de la isla, informó la compañía. En una carta enviada la semana pasada a LUMA, algunos miembros del Congreso de los EEUU expresaron su preocupación sobre por qué la empresa “no había preparado adecuadamente la infraestructura energética de la isla” para soportar un huracán como Fiona.

Esta es la síntesis informativa del viernes 30 de septiembre de 2022: - Después de una caída pandémica, los resultados publicados el jueves de las pruebas estandarizadas del estado de la primavera de 2022 muestran una recuperación lenta y mixta. Esos resultados, basados ​​en pruebas realizadas el año escolar pasado, muestran que en todos los grados y distritos de Massachusetts, las calificaciones en matemáticas y ciencias al menos han dejado de caer. Pero no ocurre lo mismo con la sección de inglés y artes del lenguaje. Además, la asistencia de los estudiantes siguió cayendo el año pasado: a medida que el estado se recupera de la pérdida de aprendizaje relacionada con la pandemia, el estudiante promedio de Massachusetts perdió 15 días de clases el año pasado frente a los 11 días en 2020-21. En una conferencia de prensa que presentó los resultados el miércoles, Jeff Riley, el comisionado de educación K-12 del estado, notó pequeños aumentos en los puntajes promedio en las secciones de matemáticas y ciencias de la prueba para los grados 3 a 8. Pero los estudiantes de décimo grado vieron una modesta disminución continua en los puntajes de matemáticas. El Examen de Evaluación Integral de Massachusetts se administra todos los años en los grados 3 a 8 y en el grado 10, pero las pruebas se suspendieron en 2020 debido a la pandemia. Los funcionarios se preocupan por el ausentismo crónico generalizado, incluidos 1,7 millones de días totales de aprendizaje perdidos en el estado debido a pruebas positivas de COVID en el año escolar 2021-22. Mientras tanto, algunos críticos del examen, conocido como MCAS, dicen que los desafíos de la pandemia deberían poner en duda la utilidad de las pruebas estandarizadas en este momento. Los distritos escolares y los defensores reaccionan a las puntuaciones El resultado menos que tranquilizador de la prueba MCAS 2022 provocó una reacción mixta de los líderes educativos de todo el estado. Mientras tanto, algunos defensores cuestionaron la validez de los resultados en conjunto en circunstancias difíciles. A diferencia de otros años, los funcionarios estatales no utilizarán los resultados del MCAS de 2022 para reforzar la supervisión de las escuelas o distritos de bajo rendimiento, dijo Riley. En cambio, estos puntajes se usarán como los nuevos resultados de "línea de base" contra los cuales se medirá el progreso adicional, o más retrocesos. El estado usa su MCAS en el grado 10 como un requisito de graduación y votó este verano para hacer que aprobar ese examen sea más difícil. Ese nuevo umbral entra en vigor en 2024. Los funcionarios estatales dijeron que ayudarían a los distritos a implementar nuevas intervenciones destinadas a mejorar la escritura de los estudiantes y continuar ofreciendo programas académicos de verano y tutoría de "alta dosis".

It didn't however start with coffee!  Having turned his Dad's business around and pivoted it into new sectors, David speaks to Oliver about how there's a seismic culture shift in today's world about what being an 'entrepreneur' actually is.  David started his first 'proper' business at University at aged 22 whilst studying UCL. David and his co-founders found themselves pitching for seed capital around a boardroom table before even graduating, the business he was pitching for capital still trades today. GRIND took on the giants of Costa Coffee and Starbucks and, in time, started to win. Having arranged external investment for GRIND it was still just a side hustle. David ended up jumping ship from his University founded business to go into GRIND full time.   It was during the start of the 2019 pandemic that everything changed for David and the GRIND team.  GRIND, a business that was turning over c£10m at the time, had no choice but to close it's high street coffee shops overnight, ultimately leading to David exploring new avenues for revenue. It was this world first, D2C compostable pod offering that doubled GRIND's turnover in less than 12 months to over £20m.  Still going strong, GRIND and David are looking to take on the US.

FUENTE: HOLYOKE MEDIA - El fiscal general de Nueva York demandó el miércoles al expresidente Donald Trump y su compañía por fraude, alegando que aumentaron su patrimonio neto en miles de millones de dólares al mentir sobre el valor de activos preciados, incluidos campos de golf, hoteles y sus casas en Trump Tower y Mar-a-Lago. La procuradora general Letitia James lo denominó: “El arte del robo”. La demanda de James, presentada en un tribunal estatal de Nueva York, es la culminación de una investigación civil de tres años contra Trump y la Organización Trump. Los tres hijos mayores de Trump, Donald Jr., Ivanka y Eric Trump, también fueron nombrados como acusados, junto con dos ejecutivos de la compañía desde hace mucho tiempo, Allen Weisselberg y Jeffrey McConney. La demanda ataca el núcleo de lo que hizo famoso a Trump y pone en duda la imagen de riqueza y opulencia que ha adoptado a lo largo de su carrera, primero como desarrollador de bienes raíces, luego como presentador de programas de televisión y más tarde como presidente. James quiere que Trump y los demás acusados ​​paguen al menos 250 millones de dólares, que según ella es el valor aproximado de los beneficios que obtuvo a través de prácticas fraudulentas.
