He served as chairman and CEO of the Bank of Hawaii from 2004 to 2010 and served in several other executive positions with the bank from 2000 until his appointment as CEO, including president, chief operating officer, chief financial officer, and risk officer.From 1998 to 2000, Landon served as CFO for First American Corp. and its subsidiary, First American National Bank. The majority of Landon’s professional career has been spent at Ernst & Young, where he worked from 1970 to 1998, becoming a partner in 1984. Landon received a bachelor’s degree from Iowa State University.”Allan Landon has the proven experience, judgment and deep knowledge of the financial system to serve at the Federal Reserve during this important time for our economy,” Obama said in a prepared statement “He brings decades of leadership and expertise from various roles, particularly as a community banker. I’m confident that he will serve our country well.”The Fed has not had had a community banker serve on its board of governors since Elizabeth Duke retired in August 2013.Landon’s nomination must be confirmed by the Senate, which may present an obstacle now that Republicans have a majority. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Alabama), who is expected to become chairman of the Senate Banking Committee (which must approve the nomination), opposed Obama’s nomination of economist Peter Diamond as Fed governor in 2010.Landon previously served on the board for the Seattle Federal Home Loan Bank. He and Washington Federal Savings CEO Roy Whitehead, who also served on that board, were removed from their positions on the board in May 2005 due to the improper sale of a combined $73 million worth of their banks’ stock. The board did not find any wrongdoing on Landon’s or Whitehead’s part, but the board’s independent review committee found that an “an appearance of impropriety” was created when the Bank of Hawaii and Washington Federal redeemed $25 million and $48 million, respectively, worth of Seattle FHLBank stock in 2004.

Mayo, Jim Higgins said “I am concerned that the lack of a Garda presence on our roads in Co. Donegal is resulting in more people losing their lives in 2013 so far. I want to see this trend reversed. We also need to cooperation of all road users – motorists, pedestrians and cyclists alike in order to drive deaths down. I want to see this latest trend stopped, and visible traffic units mounted more often in the county.”Nationally figures remain stable compared to last year, with an increase of just 2 deaths from 92 to 94 deaths for the first six months. “Last year was the safest year ever on Irish roads, with 161 people losing their lives, thanks to the work of the RSA and the public’s cooperation. We need to make sure 2013 is even safer, and stop the bloody slaughter,” said the FG MEP.Mr Higgins paid particular tribute to the work of the RSA saying “Since the RSA was set up in 2006, the number of lives lost has been falling year on year. This has been due to a combination of driver education, hard hitting ads, better enforcement, new driving tests and licences, the NCT and penalty points. From being one of the most dangerous countries a decade ago, we are now the 4th safest country in the EU in which to drive – this is no small achievement. That said, we need to focus on blackspots like Donegal and reverse this latest trend.” WhatsApp News Twitter Gardai continue to investigate Kilmacrennan fire

FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail Will The Real Joe Donnelly Please Stand Up?Don’t be hoodwinked. The affable Senator Joe Donnelly you see smiling in his many TV ads paid for by the National Democrat Party saying he went to Washington to work for you, is being disingenuous at best. He went to Washington to work for Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi. Yes, he and two other “at risk” democrat senators went to dinner with President Trump two weeks ago, and yes, he met with Congressmen Messer and Rokita and VP Pence this fall in Anderson, not because he agreed with anything Trump or Pence was going to say, but because his job is in jeopardy. He, as have too many chummy republicans, has popped on a moderate mask to deceive you and me.It is all about ends and means. Senator Donnelly is one of three sitting Democrat senators at risk for losing their jobs next fall, because they represent states that went to Trump in the general election. Donnelly is smiling and socializing with Trump and Pence because he has been allowed to do so by Chuckie Schumer. The ends—retaining Indiana’s senate seat for the democrats—is all that matters. He needs to be seen as a moderate force in the Hoosier State, and a faux conservative in order to maintain that seat. Let me be clear that Donnelly has been bought and paid for by Senator Schumer and the democrat party fearful of losing yet another senate seat to the republicans next fall. If the means to that end, is voting with more value-centered republicans for tax reform, he will be permitted to do so by the increasingly frightened democrat leadership.Donnelly has proudly said he will never approve a border wall and will never allow federal funds to be denied to sanctuary cities. He is also a firm supporter of the abortion mill we know by the euphemism of Planned Parenthood. Now he wants to be seen as friendly to tax reform so as not to lose this senate seat next time around. If he is reelected, he will once again be Schumer’s Midwest servant voting to raise your taxes and push this country toward single-payer healthcare. What does single-payer health care mean to you? It means your taxes will rise to an even higher confiscatory level, healthcare will be rationed, innovative medicine will go elsewhere, and the same bureaucracies that run the post office, the DMV, and the EPA will determine the quality of health care you receive.If we think for a second that the same Joe Donnelly who votes 90% of the time with the progressive democrat agenda, who was the deciding vote in approving Obama’s disastrous Iran nuclear deal, after telling the republicans he would vote to reject it, and was the critical vote for the midnight attack on America’s excellent health care, now known an Obamacare, actually supports Trump’s desire to bring home corporate earnings, remove the death tax, reduce taxes for the middle class, and reduce the federal control of our economy, you are whistling past the graveyard.We need a republican in that senate seat next November. I am the one outsider in our primary race who has no current federal income that I am trying to preserve. I will be new to Washington DC, not a member of the already existing swamp. I ask for your vote.Working for you,Mark HurtCandidate For the United States SenateFOOTNOTE: This article was posted by the CCO without opinion, bias or editing.
Tonight, the Phish will return for night 13 with a “pink glaze with rainbow sprinkles” donut, and still hundreds of songs to choose from in their ever-expansive songbook. Thank you Phish, we can’t believe we’ve made it this far. It’s been a wild run, folks, and Phish will officially complete their thirteen-night residency at Madison Square Garden tonight in true fashion. Not only is that the longest streak of consecutive shows to take place at The Garden, but the band perfected the run without a single repeat. Each night of the Baker’s Dozen presented a new flavor donut, which translated to the night’s setlist theme. This inevitably created a “can’t miss” atmosphere that drew thousands of fans to the city for the final weekend’s sold-out shows. On Friday night, the Vermont quartet celebrated their 50th show at the 20,000+ person venue–another huge accomplishment, to say the least. While this run has been historic for fans all over the world, New York City has especially reaped the benefits of having Phish in town.Phish Delivers Boston Cream Mash-Up, “Ghost,” & “The Lizards” For Penultimate Baker’s Dozen PerformanceTonight certainly marks an important moment in Phish history, for all the reasons mentioned above. We’re not the only ones thrilled by Phish’s NYC residency, as the NYC Mayor’s Office tweeted that today, August 6, 2017, is officially “Phish Day.” Their message reads: “Thanks for the memories we shared, we’ll never forget either,” with a photo of Team Phish backstage at Madison Square Garden beneath a large sign that celebrates their 50th show on Friday. Thanks Mayor Bill De Blasio! Here’s a close up of the “Phish Day” proclamation:
Master’s degree in religion, check. Dissertation for a doctoral degree (involving ethnographic study of people raised in the fundamentalist Christian tradition who ultimately broke away from it through arts intervention), check. Organic sandwich cart, check.On Tuesday afternoons this summer, a hungry crowd convenes just outside Harvard’s Science Center, waiting patiently in front of a small white cart on wheels for mouthwatering grilled sandwiches.Customers mill about near the Tanner Fountain rock garden in anticipation of tasty treats such as the Renegade (made with pepper jack cheese, baby arugula, and heirloom tomatoes), the Gouda Afternoon (a combination of Gouda cheese, avocado, and cilantro), or the Elvis (peanut butter, sliced bananas, with a side of Somerville’s own marshmallow Fluff and, as the menu states, “a chance to commune with ‘the King’ ”).Lefty’s Silver Cart is the work of Philip Francis, a doctoral candidate at Harvard Divinity School with an affinity for profound reflection, and for produce. His model is simple: Create gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, using locally grown and developed products, and a helping of good humor.“It’s grilled sandwiches by day and Nietzsche by night,” said Francis, who hopes to defend his thesis this fall and begin looking for a job as a professor.The Maine native started operating the cart after an intense period of study following his general exams prior to his dissertation. Living with books night and day, he said, left him wanting “to hit my thumb with a hammer a few times and become grounded again, and this cart was just a great chance.”A popular staple at the Farmers’ Market at Harvard, Lefty’s has been a regular repeat vendor since 2007. The cart got its start at the Renegade Craft Fair in Brooklyn, N.Y., the same year, but soon branched out to a variety of music festivals and local farmers’ markets.“It’s food by nomads for nomads. I’m drawn to the carnival, on-the-road feeling. I like being in a self-contained unit that can pick up and move,” said Francis.Dara Olmsted, food literacy project coordinator and market manager of Harvard’s Hospitality & Dining Services, loves the diversity that Lefty’s contributes to the Farmers’ Market at Harvard and the fact that Francis buys many of his sandwich fixings there.“He shops at the market for a lot of his produce, which supports our farmers,” she said. “People regularly ask when the cart will be back. He is very popular.”In a nod to the market, Francis is sure to give his sandwich ingredients top billing.He notes on his menu that his cucumbers come from Lanni Orchards, his mozzarella from Fiore di Nonno, and his Gouda from Narragansett Creamery, all regular vendors at the market. For his popular banana chocolate smoothie (made on a bike-powered blender), Francis uses chocolate from Taza Chocolate, a local manufacturer. Satisfied diners only have to walk a few steps to the nearby stalls to find more of the same ingredients that they can buy and bring home.“That was the idea, to build this kind of synergistic thing between us and the farmers, and it has been great. The farmers love having us. I think it brings a little more festiveness to the market, and it draws people in,” he said.When he decided to enter the business, jumping on what he felt was an emerging, “hip trend” in food carts, he went to the one place he knew he would find exactly what he was seeking: eBay.Francis was close to purchasing a cart with a serious pedigree, one rumored to have toured with the Grateful Dead in the ’70s, but got priced out in a heated bidding war. Instead, he settled on a retired kettle corn cart belonging to a couple in Vermont. With a few adjustments, it was ready to go, as was Francis, who admitted that getting the business up and running has been largely a process of trial and error, much like his newest addition to the operation, the bicycle blender.On Friday, rigged to a cobalt blue Space Rider tricycle next to his cart was the top half of a blender filled with fruit, juice, and ice. Keeping a hand on the blender top, Francis set a steady pace on the three-wheeled bike to mix the concoction. A quick taste test revealed large ice cubes still intact.“It just doesn’t quite have the power,” he said. “We need to work on the interface.”Restaurant work runs in his family, and helps inform his operating ethos. His grandfather ran a diner in Connecticut.

When the offices do open to in-person visits it will be for driver’s license renewals and upgrades and driver’s license testing only. All other transactions will continue by drop box and mail only. Barmore asks that all people coming to the office wear a facemask as proper social distancing is not possible at all times.Barmore adds that effective Monday, June 22nd, the County Clerk’s office in the courthouse in Mayville will be open to the public for all services. Chautauqua is an eFile and eRecord county so I am asking everyone to submit their documents in this manner where possible. He says his office is still accepting mail-in recordings where appropriate.New York State is still prohibiting foreclosures and judgements to be started in his office. The office has limited personnel to help with genealogy research at this time so it is recommended that you first call 753-4857 to make an appointment. The department has two employees out on voluntary furlough because of the county’s expected budget shortage so the office may not be as fast as normal and Barmore asks for your patience.
Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Ex-Nassau County P:olice Det. Sgt. Alan Sharpe (NCDA).Opening statements are scheduled to start Monday in the trial of a retired Nassau County police detective sergeant accused of helping two ex-commanders of covering up a burglary committed by a police benefactor’s son.Alan Sharpe had pleaded not guilty charges in a March 2012 grand jury indictment, which included misdemeanor counts of conspiracy, official misconduct and offering a false instrument for filing.Prosecutors have said Sharpe changed a report written by a Seventh Squad detective in his command to falsely suggest that officials at John F. Kennedy High School in Bellmore did not want to press charges in 2009 against a then-student who stole thousands of dollars worth of electronics.Sharpe’s codefendant, ex-Second Deputy Nassau County Police Commissioner William Flanagan, was convicted of official misconduct and conspiracy charges last year. A jury acquitted him of felony receiving reward for misconduct. Judge Mark Cohen had sentenced him to 60 days in jail but the execution of his sentence was stayed while attorneys for Flanagan appeal the conviction.Former Deputy Chief of Patrol John Hunter had pleaded guilty to conspiracy and misconduct charges after Flanagan was convicted. He was sentenced to probation and community service.The student, Zachary Parker of Merrick, who was an intern with the police ambulance bureau at the time of the thefts, was released from a prison boot camp for youthful offenders last summer after pleading guilty to burglary and drug charges, then violating the terms of his probation.Parker and the ex-brass were charged after Nassau District Attorney Kathleen Rice’s office investigated allegations in a Press expose detailing police favoritism. Parker’s father, Gary, had been identified in court as an unindicted coconspirator for using his police contacts as a member of a police nonprofit to have the charges against his son quashed.
Meanwhile, KR has been procuring test technology for LNG-propelled ship engines and after-treatment devices through the Greenship Equipment Testing and Certification Center (TCC) established in Gunsan in 2015. KR will also collaborate with TGS to develop practical education and training programs for shipping companies, shipyards, and equipment companies, for example by combining the use of an operator training simulator (OTS) and virtual reality (VR) based on a real-time simulation of the LNG vessel fuel processes. Additionally, following the opening ceremony, a memorandum of understanding was signed between KR and Transgas Solution agreeing to build an operator training simulator (OTS) system which will be used to training operators of LNG-propelled ships and for ship-to-ship bunkering. KR said the simulation center will provide comprehensive technical services relating to LNG operations, including not only the customized trial and optimal operations for LNG fuel supply and bunkering systems but also conducting the detailed risk analysis for liquefied gas for ships propelled by fuels such as LNG, hydrogen, and ammonia. The use of LNG as a ship fuel and demand for bunkering is expected to increase as a result of the International Maritime Organization’s regulations to reduce SOx, which came into effect at the beginning of this year, and with the strengthening of GHG emission regulations in the future. The KR LSC has been established to facilitate industrial growth across the LNG propulsion and bunkering sector, KR said in its statement. The new facility is located at KR’s headquarters in Busan and officially opened on September 15. The newly established KR LSC will provide unified LNG technical services adding simulation technology and enabling the implementation of a pretreatment device for LNG fuel propulsion. The Korean Register (KR) has established a new LNG fuel and bunkering simulation center (KR LSC). Courtesy of KR
