APSCA revokes Membership of Leverage Limited

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, February 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Association of Professional Social Compliance Auditors (APSCA) announced today that it has revoked the membership of Leverage Limited.

APSCA determined that Leverage’s conduct related to the improper copying and distribution of APSCA’s certification exam questions violated Sections 1.1. (Accountability) and 2.3 (Integrity Management) of APSCA's Code and Standards of Professional Conduct (Code). After a thorough investigation by an outside firm, the decision to revoke Leverage’s membership was made by the APSCA Disciplinary Board for Member Firms, made up of experienced professionals who are independent of any APSCA Member Firm. Upon appeal, the decision was affirmed by APSCA’s Executive Board on February 17, 2021. All proceedings were conducted in accordance with APSCA’s Disciplinary Framework and Procedures, which are publicly available at https://www.theapsca.org/ethics-integrity.

Although APSCA has, on several occasions in the past, revoked the membership of individual member auditors, this is the first time APSCA has revoked the membership of a member firm following disciplinary proceedings.

APSCA’s President and CEO, Rona Starr stated that “APSCA exists to enhance the professionalism, consistency and credibility of the individuals and organizations performing independent social compliance audits. The imposition of disciplinary sanctions on individual auditors and members firms who violate our professional standards is not taken lightly and is an important component of our efforts to achieve these goals for the social compliance industry.”

The Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) is a democratically elected Government of over a million strong Tamils (from the island of Sri Lanka) living in several countries around the world.

TGTE was formed after the mass killing of Tamils by the Sri Lankan Government in 2009.

TGTE thrice held internationally supervised elections among Tamils around the world to elect 135 Members of Parliament. It has two chambers of Parliament: The House of Representatives and the Senate and also a Cabinet.

TGTE is leading a campaign to realize the political aspirations of Tamils through peaceful, democratic, and diplomatic means and its Constitution mandates that it should realize its political objectives only through peaceful means. It’s based on the principles of nationhood, homeland and self-determination.

TGTE seeks that the international community hold the perpetrators of war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide against the Tamil people to account. TGTE calls for a referendum to decide the political future of Tamils.

The Prime Minister of TGTE is Mr. Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran, a New York based lawyer.

Tamils in the island of Sri Lanka faced repeated mass killings in 1958, 1977, and 1983 and the mass killings in 2009 prompted UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to appoint a Panel of Experts to report on the scale of the killings.

* According to UN internal review report on Sri Lanka, over 70 thousand Tamils were killed in six months in early 2009 and Tamil women were sexually assaulted and raped by the Sri Lankan Security forces.

* International Truth and Justice Project (ITJP) in February 2017 handed over details to UN of Sri Lankan Military run "Rape Camps", where Tamil women are being held as “sex slaves”.

* According to UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office report on April 2013, there are over 90 thousand Tamil war widows in Sri Lanka.

* Thousands of Tamils disappeared, including babies and children. UN Working Group on Enforced Disappearances stated in 2020 that the second highest number of enforced disappearance cases in the world is from Sri Lanka.

According to this UN report, the killings and other abuses that took place amount to war crimes and crimes against humanity. Independent experts believe that there are elements of these abuses that constitute an act of genocide.

Members of the Sri Lankan security forces are almost exclusively from the Sinhalese community and the victims are all from the Tamil community. A Buddhist Monk shot and killed a Sri Lankan Prime Minister 1959 for having talks with Tamils.

Tamils overwhelmingly voted in a Parliamentary election in 1977 to establish an independent and sovereign country called Tamil Eelam. This Parliamentary election was conducted by the Sri Lankan Government.

Celebrities, Civil Rights Leaders Rally To Stop 86-Year-Old Black Farmer From Losing 500 Acre Family Farm

Health insurance giant UnitedHealthcare® set to auction off the Black-owned farm

This ordeal is killing me, at 86-years-old I never imagine losing the one thing my family worked so hard for and is a part of our family legacy.”

— Lee Holley, Farm Owner

DALLAS, TX, USA, February 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — An African American farmer and his brothers from Omaha, Texas, are pleading for the public’s help to stop the farm they pooled their money together to purchase in 1968 from being auctioned off after a dispute with UnitedHealthcare® that has nothing to do with the farmers or their farm. The attempt to seize the farm amidst a President approved statewide winter emergency and the global pandemic has gotten the attention of celebrities and civil rights leaders who are lending their voice and social media platforms to bring attention to the issue.

86-year-old cattle farmer Lee Holley and his two brothers, Willie and Rudolph, say they have fought off racism and death threats over the years from people who have not supported seeing the 500-acre property in the hands of an African-American family. But they can’t fight off a lawsuit by the healthcare giant threatening to destroy the family’s legacy and everything they have lived and worked for over the years.

“Our family is heartbroken over this,” said Holley. “This farm is everything we have and the only life my brothers and I have known. We have raised our children and grandchildren here, and we would do anything to save it.”

The lawsuit with United healthcare is over medical claims involving Lee’s 60-year-old daughter, Dr. Lisa Holley, an anesthesiologist from Dallas. UnitedHealthcare® alleges that they overpaid for surgeries she billed through her medical practice, LH Medical, which Dr. Holley disputes. A two-million-dollar default judgment by the court opened up an opportunity for UnitedHealthcare® to come after everything, including the family farm. Dr. Holley says it is held in a family trust and should not be a part of this settlement.

“This feels like a modern-day lynching,” said Dr. Holley. “African American’s never got their 40-acres and a mule, and here you have a family who had to fight all kinds of racism to buy this farmland in the middle of the civil rights movement in the 1960s. It is even harder to keep it, only now to watch it stolen over a financial matter having nothing to do with the farm.

Lee Holley believes this is part of a larger conspiracy to rob Black Farmers of their land. This month, the Senate announced The Justice for Black Farmers Act to protect remaining Black farmers from losing their land. The act will provide land grants to create a new generation of Black farmers, restore the land base lost, and implement systemic reforms to help family farmers across the United States. According to US Senator Cory Booker, there were nearly one million Black farmers in the United States in 1920. Unfortunately, due to the history of discrimination, it is estimated that there are less than 50,000 remaining Black farmers.

“This should be criminal,” said Holley. “This ordeal is killing me; at 86-years-old I never imagine losing the one thing my family worked so hard for and is a part of our family legacy. If I had the money to pay United Healthcare myself, I would, but I am an elderly farmer trying to fight a healthcare giant.” My family and I are not asking for a handout; we are merely praying for a miracle,”

A crowdfund has been established by a notable, award-winning journalist and founder of iWomanTV, Cathleen Trigg-Jones, to shine a national spotlight on the issue and help the family raise money to save the farm.

A sheriff’s auction for the farm is scheduled for March 2, 2021, at 10 AM on the Morris County Courthouse’s steps in Omaha, Texas.

Hong Kong’s Coronavirus-Related Air Crew Quarantines are Inconsistent for US Pilots and Crew

Poses an Ongoing Risk to US Air Carrier Pilots and Crew by Forcing “Close Contact” Crews to Quarantine Upon Arrival at a Government Quarantine Camp

Hong Kong’s refusal to honor its commitment to the U.S. Government poses an ongoing health-related risk to the working conditions of U.S. air carrier pilots and crew.”

— Air Line Pilots Association, International

UNITED STATES, February 27, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — ALPA pilots have worked stoically throughout the pandemic to ensure the vital flow of goods and people, including, recently, global distribution of the vaccine itself. It is important that all governments cooperate to the maximum extent possible to ensure the safety of flight crews, and minimize intrusion on the liberty of personnel operating international flights.

Unfortunately, Hong Kong’s actions with respect to coronavirus-related air crew quarantines are inconsistent with an understanding with the US and pose an ongoing risk to US air carrier pilots and crew by forcing “close contact” crews to quarantine upon arrival at a government quarantine camp. Nonstop flights from the US involve crew layovers, but Hong Kong’s actions render nonstops untenable, putting US carriers at an arbitrary, unfair disadvantage.

These actions violate the US-Hong Kong Air Service Agreement. The implementation of new quarantine rules may worsen Hong Kong’s treatment of US air crew relative to other countries’ air crews. For the reasons discussed herein, we respectfully request that the Department limit to a period of 179 days American’s exemption request to continue codesharing with Cathay, Hong Kong’s major airline, until the Hong Kong government rectifies its treatment of US pilots and crew. By granting short term approval, the Department will have the opportunity to regularly revisit Hong Kong’s progress and compliance. Alternatively, on behalf of all of ALPA’s pilot members, we request that DOT exercise its Part 213 authority to achieve the same result.

In another arbitrary blow to U.S. carriers, the rules also include a troubling and curious carve-out for Hong Kong-based all-cargo operations to and from Anchorage, Alaska, if the crew remain in a sterile “closed-loop.” It appears that no U.S. carrier can make practical use of this exception, even those with Anchorage bases, because U.S. crews are exposed to the local Anchorage population.

Attorney Alexander Petraglia Providing Free Consultations on Medical Malpractice and Personal Injury Cases

Attorney Alexander Petraglia

Alexander Petraglia, Esq.

Alex Petraglia, leading criminal defense and family attorney, announces free consultations for anyone in need in the Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati areas.

INDEPENDENCE, KY, UNITED STATES, February 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Alex Petraglia, Esq., and the team at Deters Law have become one of the few highly-coveted law firms that allow people to retain an attorney with no upfront fees or expenses. After witnessing the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on his clients in the Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati areas, attorney Alexander Petraglia has decided to take things a step further by offering free consultations on medical malpractice and personal injury cases, as well.

With so many people in need during these uncertain times, a free consultation will allow potential litigants to have their claims thoroughly reviewed and investigated by an expert, who will address their concerns or questions without any out-of-pocket expenses. This is a bold move. Many other top local attorneys do not provide free consultations, which means that people have to spend money upfront to meet with an attorney before they know whether that particular one will be able to provide the help that they desperately need.

A good consultation with an attorney can take over an hour to complete. Some lawyers don’t take the time to properly evaluate every claim that comes across their desk. Meanwhile, there are other attorneys and law firms that offer free consultations, but it’s because they are inexperienced and looking to fill up their schedule with a few new clients.

People often feel overwhelmed when it comes to finding the right personal injury lawyer to handle their cases. They might also be pressured by an insurance company or an employer to settle personal injury claims without representation, a situation that can end with victims receiving little to no compensation.

As Alex Petraglia states, “No one deserves to live in pain and anguish, especially when injuries are the result of someone else’s negligence. Insurance companies will always try to downplay your pain and suffering, which is why it’s essential to have a competent and experienced attorney on your side. Unfortunately, people start to feel fatigued, and with their finances quickly dwindling, they end up settling their claim for much less than they deserve.”

“That’s why our firm is offering clients a free consultation and case assistance on a contingency basis. What this means is that we don’t get paid until you get paid. You get the best and most experienced representation by a firm that truly cares about you,” said attorney Alexander Petraglia of Deters Law.

When someone has been a victim of an accident that wasn’t their fault, like a car accident or a slip and fall, they should reach out as soon as possible to get help with their case, taking advantage of this free consultation. Injury victims can find exactly where they stand with their case and whether they may be eligible for compensation, all with no obligation.

About Alex Petraglia, Esq.

Alexander Petraglia is a licensed trial attorney who is dedicated to the vigorous representation of his clients. He currently works at Deters Law Office and has experience in both criminal defense and civil suits. Notably, Mr. Petraglia has completed the Gideon’s Promise Trial program, which focuses on perfecting trial advocacy and client care. He gives it his all in every case to protect his clients’ liberty, health, and wealth.

New Survey Reveals 46% of Bronx Residents will Take the Vaccine

The Thinkubator

The Bronx Community Foundation

The Thinkubator and The Bronx Community Foundation conducted a survey of NYC residents on the Covid-19 Vaccine. 46% of Bronxites will take the Vaccine.

BRONX, NY, UNITED STATES, February 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Bronx, New York: The Think Tank at The Thinkubator under the leadership of Dr. Lessie Branch and The Bronx Community Foundation have conducted a study on the Covid-19 Vaccine. The survey was conducted between February 11 – February 14 of 500 New York City residents utilizing SurveyMonkey’s powerful online survey platform. The survey sought to better understand respondents' knowledge of the vaccine, where they received their information from, whether they would take the vaccine or not, and reasons for their decisions regarding the vaccine. The survey results revealed that 59% of New York City residents will take the vaccine while 46% of Bronxites will receive the vaccine.

Other findings:
57% of respondents had a positive position on the vaccine and have significant information to make a decision about taking the vaccine while 15% had a negative view of the vaccine.
58% report learning about the Covid-19 vaccine from the news while 18% indicated that social media is where they’ve learned about the vaccine.
26% indicated that they would not take the vaccine even if required by their employer to work while 65% indicated that if their employer required the vaccination to physically attend work that they would take the vaccine.
When asked what factors are influencing your decision on whether you will take the vaccine or not? Respondents indicated
46% family
28% friends
37% medical professional
25% history of vaccinations
36% Covid-19 infection and death rates
When asked what concerns did respondents have? 31% repondent the potential side effects of the vaccine while 24% did not have any concerns about the vaccine.

Responses for Bronx residents reveal the following:
35% have a neutral opinion of the Covid-19 vaccine.
54% believe they have enough information about the vaccine to make an informed decision.
60% learned about the vaccine from the news.
46.2% stated that they will take the Covid-19 vaccine.
A large portion of Bronxites stated that family and the Covid-19 infection and death rates are influencing their decisions about the vaccine.

“The results are interesting when comparing and contrasting the Bronx to the rest of New York City residents.” Said Dr. Edward Summers, President and CEO of The Thinkubator. “The Bronx residents have a higher hestiatation rate when asked whether they will take the vaccine or not. Roughly, 13% fewer Bronxites will take the vaccine compared to nearly 60% of New York City residents. This indicates that we need to continue to think about ways to provide factual information to Bronxites.”

Dr. Lessie Branch, Director of The Think Tank at The Thinkubator stated “There is a desperate need for transformational relationships and not simply transactional relationships to overcome the centuries of distrust of people of color in the government and the medical community. Often as it relates to communities like the Bronx, the frame is one where management by crisis is the modus operandi. Things happen in a reactionary manner and the result is shortsighted policy leading to confusion and distrust. While in the instant case of COVID-19 a reactionary response to creating a vaccine is the proper response, that Black and Brown folk, women and communities like the Bronx have been treated as mere transactions for so long and have not had the benefit of trusted and established relationships, there are fewer residents who express confidence in the COVID-19 vaccine. It is my hope that this can be a teachable moment where those who are in power can really extrapolate the importance of establishing meaningful community relationships as a way to advance public goods and positive public outcomes.”

Desmon Lewis, Co-Founder of The Bronx Community Foundation said “With The Bronx being the unhealthiest part of New York State, our residents have been severely impacted by COVID-19. Although the Government moved swiftly in the creation of the vaccine, our community remains skeptical given previous government intervention in these types of situations. It is clear from the survey we executed that it is vitally important that Bronxites, and other residents across the City, are educated and continue to be given the information they need about the vaccine to ensure they could make an informed decision. We look forward to continuing to work in the community to support vaccine education for our Bronxites."
