Both Texas-side incumbents, Ward 4's Christie Page and Ward 6's Jay Davis, said via email that they plan to run for re-election. Arkansas-side Mayor Allen Brown announced his re-election bid on June 7.

None of the Arkansas-side incumbents -- Ward 3's Steven Hollibush, Ward 4's Ulysses Brewer and Ward 5's Barbara Miner -- had responded to inquiries as of Thursday afternoon.

For a place on the ballot, Texas-side City Council candidates must submit an application to the city secretary by the filing deadline. The application form is available from the city secretary's office in City Hall or online at ci.texarkana.tx.us/690/General-Election---November-8-2022.

City Council candidates must be qualified voters and taxpayers who will have lived in Texarkana, Texas, for at least 12 months and in the ward they seek to represent for at least six months by Election Day, Nov. 8.

Those who wish to run for a Texarkana, Arkansas, mayor or Board of Directors must submit a petition with signatures of at least 50 city voters, a political practices pledge, an affidavit of eligibility and a statement of financial interest. All are due to the city clerk by the filing deadline.

Candidates' information and forms are available at the city clerk's office in City Hall or online at cityoftexarkanaar.com/2022-elections/.

A candidate for mayor or the Board must be at least 21 years of age, a resident of the city for at least 30 days and a qualified registered voter. Board candidates must live in the ward they wish to represent.

Killexams : Harris County will consider legal action against Texas over its selection for a 2022 election audit
Harris County election workers handle ballots Tuesday, March 1, 2022.

Harris County is set to bring legal action against Texas, following the Secretary of State's office's selection of the county for an audit of its 2022 election results. County Attorney Christian Menefee requested permission to pursue the legal action, and Commissioners Court voted 3-2 along party lines to authorize the suit.

Last week, the Secretary of State's Office selected four counties for audit, as required by legislation passed during last year's second special session of the State Legislature (SB 1). The election code required the Secretary of State select four counties for audit – two counties with populations of 300,000 or more, and two with populations less than 300,000.

"We printed each county's name on a slip of paper, and divided the slips into two groups: (1) counties with more than 300,000 in population, and (2) counties with under 300,000 in population. Then, we placed those slips into an empty bucket and had a member of our staff randomly select two counties from each group," said Sam Taylor, Assistant Secretary of State for Communications.

"This the same process we use to determine the ballot order for Constitutional Amendment propositions – they are usually drawn from a cowboy hat or boot," Taylor added.

Texas has 254 counties. Harris County is one of only 18 counties with populations of over 300,000, and it is by far the largest. The other three counties selected were Cameron, Guadalupe, and Eastland Counties.

The audit is part of the new Texas voting law, Senate Bill 1, passed during a special legislative session in 2021. In addition to the statutorily required random audit, the law tightens voting restrictions in the state and limits the ability of Texas counties to control elections.

In a statement, SB 1 co-author state Sen. Paul Bettencourt, R-Houston, called a possible lawsuit “frivolous.”

"The democrat majority on the Harris County Commissioner’s Court has authorized their most ‘frivolous' election lawsuit yet on a partisan 3 to 2 vote,” Bettencourt said. “This time along with County Attorney Menefee, they are disputing the ‘randomness' of an audit selection by the Texas Secretary of State as they were one of two large counties out of 18 selected per an Amendment to SB 1."

In addition, Harris County is already subject to an election audit of its 2020 election results, along with three of the state's other large counties – Dallas, Tarrant, and Collin Counties. That audit came following public pressure from former President Donald Trump.

Harris County Attorney Christian Menefee said that's no coincidence.

“All of this stems from folks in a certain party using lies about the 2020 election and now subsequent elections for political benefit,” he said.

Menefee said such audits without any evidence of voter fraud could undermine the credibility of the election results.

“Not only do we have these audits, which drain county resources, but we have conspiracy theorists who file lawsuits against Harris County that my office ends up having to defend,” Menefee said.

Republican Commissioner Tom Ramsey spoke up in favor of the need for audits, and against a county lawsuit against the state, by citing latest problems that Harris County has had in tabulating election results, leading to lengthy delays in reporting results.

"I would simply make the case to County Attorney Menefee's point, in terms of a potential lawsuit," Ramsey said, "I would think there's been voter suppression in Harris County, simply because we don't know how to run elections."

Judge Lina Hidalgo countered that many of those difficulties in running elections were the direct result of the conditions put on Harris County by the State Legislature in SB 1. She argued that was the direct result of former President Trump's false claims that the 2020 election had been stolen, and she repeatedly invoked the findings of the congressional investigation into the January 6th insurrection.

"The idea of audits, if it wasn't tainted by January 6th, it sure was tainted by the 2021 decision of the state to issue an audit of Harris County as soon as President Trump asked for their to be one," Hidalgo said. "There is no reason for a politicized and politically motivated election audit, especially after democracy nearly crumbled over this pandering."

Killexams : Candidate.co, Dual-Sided Tech Hiring Platform Launches Referral App Enabling Users to Connect Their Networks to Open Positions via Personal Referrals
SEATTLE —

SEATTLE, WA (August 2, 2022) — Candidate.co, a dual sided tech platform, has launched its app today, enabling users to receive a reward if a candidate they refer to an open position is hired. The Candidate app marries the power of technology with the power of personal referrals to streamline the hiring process. Reminiscent of traditional employee referral programs, Candidate opens the process up and allows professionals to refer their network to positions across the country. Prioritizing more than what’s visible on an applicant’s resume, Candidate supports skills-based hiring over a model that focuses solely on experience. 

“In today’s job market we’re building hybrid work forces around the country and seeing fierce competition for talent,” explains Candidate.co CEO, Ryan Agresta. “Our unique referral app helps candidates land their dream jobs via referrals and allows employers to secure qualified employees. The app offers a broad range of positions and presents candidates to employers leading with a personal referral, as we believe in highlighting more than what’s visible on an applicant’s resume. We created the app in order to make the referral process more convenient and to showcase our expanded open positions ranging from sales and operations to engineering and development.”  

How the App Works:   

  1. Sign-up to become an approved referrer. (Note the app is only for referrers at this time.)
  2. Once approved, view open jobs and your matches to see which of your connections may be a good fit for open roles. 
  3. Candidate will let you know when you have a contact who’s a match for an open role, taking the guesswork out of knowing where to start with your referrals. 
  4. Submit a referral statement. 
  5. Earn a reward if your connection is hired!

Agresta, having hired and built teams at fast growing companies including Uber and Amazon, was working at Convoy in late 2019 when he began reimagining how employers and talent might connect over the next few years. “Hiring practices,” according to Agresta “have historically been an access game with immense challenges for broader and more diverse entry.” Envisioning an entirely new hiring model, Agresta left Convoy in late 2019 to launch Candidate.co. in January of 2020.  

“So many tech job opportunities are realized by industry-specific networks,” explains Agresta. “This can be detrimental to people who come from non-traditional backgrounds. Creating a platform for people’s skills to be realized and valued - rather than simply relying on experience - is what we’re doing at Candidate. We’re aiming to unlock the power of diverse, trusted networks and influence the tech ecosystem to move toward skills based hiring and thoughtful approaches to building inclusive cultures. I’m proud to say this is only one part of a larger opportunity that we aim to address at Candidate,” concludes Agresta.  

The Candidate.co app is free to use and downloadable for referrers and is now available for iOS devices and can be found exclusively on the App Store.  

###

Candidate.co, headquartered in Seattle, is reimagining the traditional hiring model by leading with referrals. Founded by CEO Ryan Agresta in January 2020, the dual sided tech platform makes it easier for employers to find talent and build more inclusive and diverse teams. Prioritizing more than what’s visible on an applicants’ resume, Candidate’s model adds a human touch point via the inclusion of a personal referral, bringing added credibility and efficiency to the hiring process. Their newly launched app makes it easy for anyone to submit referrals. Employer partners include hundreds of startups, tech companies, and publicly traded ventures based in Seattle, San Francisco, New York and beyond. Open positions are spread across the country and include remote opportunities. Candidate is a seed stage startup with backing from Voyager Capital, Revolution’s Rise of the Rest Seed Fund, Positive Sum, BAM Ventures, and more.

Killexams : Texas Secretary of State selects 4 counties for random election audits

AUSTIN — The Texas Secretary of State Office announced the four counties that were randomly selected for election audits on Thursday. Those counties are: Cameron, Guadalupe, Eastland and Harris.

Per state code, the secretary of state is to conduct an audit of the elections held in four random counties over the previous two years. Two counties must have a population of fewer than 300,000 residents and two must have populations more than 300,000.

The audits will begin immediately after the November election and cover all elections between 2020 and 2022, the Secretary of State’s office said Thursday.

While state code does not allow a county to be audited consecutively, this randomized audit is separate from the forensic audit focused solely on the 2020 General Election to which Harris County is included. The forensic audit is also auditing Collin, Dallas and Tarrant counties.

In a first-phase report of the forensic audit released in December, it was found that there were a total of 509 potential cross-state duplicate votes cast in the November 2020 General Election. Statewide, a total of 67 potential votes cast in the name of deceased people are under investigation. Of those, three were cast in Collin County, nine were cast in Dallas County, four were cast in Harris County and one was cast in Tarrant County, it said.

The random audits occur every two years, per state law.

Killexams : Fossil fuel industry should pay for climate instigated loss and damages

 

The cost of fossil fuels goes beyond what we pay when we purchase the products.

From excavation through transportation to utilization, fossil fuels have devastating impacts on environment, human health, species and ecosystems.

Pollution, asthma, bronchitis, cancer, nasal congestion, pulmonary inflammation, acidic rain, earthquakes, pipeline explosions, hazardously abandoned infrastructure are just but a few of the impacts.

Of all the impacts, global warming is the most catastrophic, widespread and inestimably costly.

The financial and emotional cost of interring loved ones who die in global warming instigated conflicts and natural disasters or hospital bills for those injured; the cost of maintaining refugee camps for the displaced; the losses incurred when crops fail or economic downfall experienced when the number of tourists to Africa plummet; the costs incurred when we dig bore holes several meters into the ground to offset water scarcity… are all climate related.

In 2013, for example, Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) killed over 6,300 people, displaced 4 million others, damaged 1 million houses and caused approximately US$2 billion in damage in Philippines.

In Kenya, the 1997 El Nino destroyed crops, roads, bridges, schools, houses and commercial buildings. Thousands of people were left homeless and livestock swept away. In November 2015, over 80 people died, several others injured and thousands displaced as El Nino rains hit a total of 9,123 households the across the country.

As climate change continues to devastate the world, especially the poor and vulnerable third world, various solutions and recommendations have been proposed, and some implemented, to ameliorate the situation: mitigation, adaptation and compensation for loss and damage.

To mitigate climate change, the world agreed in Paris to cut greenhouse gas emissions to keep global warming below 1.5oC to avoid tragic impacts.  

However, the fossil fuel industry has been working so hard, applying underhand tactics, to sabotage climate deals to continue raking in huge profits despite being clearly aware of the impacts of fossil fuels on climate.

This has prompted activists to lobby for expelling the industry from climate negotiations.

However, even if emissions are stabilized now, temperatures are still expected to increase to between 2.7–3.7oC by 2100, meaning, climate change and already occurring adverse effects will last for years.

Adaptation is therefore necessary to miimise climate change vulnerability and threats to life, human health, livelihoods, food security, properties, amenities, species and ecosystems.

Sadly, most developing countries cannot afford the cost of putting in place adaptation measures.

The annual adaptation costs are estimated to be between US$ 14 and 15 billion in sub-Saharan Africa and about US$ 2.5 billion in the Middle East and North Africa. But the cost projected to rise to US$50 billion per year in Africa and US$250-500 billion across all developing countries by 2050 even if global warming is limited to 2oC this century.

Nonetheless, even in the best mitigation and adaptation scenario, climate instigated loss (irreversible impacts of climate change such as deaths, extinction of species, loss of heritage) and damage (recoverable impacts of significant economic cost such as damage to property and infrastructure) are likely to remain for years.

The cost of loss and damage is high and rising.

The global cost of residual damage is estimated at US$275 trillion between 2000 and 2200 for all countries. This does not include non-economic losses though. The cost is extremely high if little or no action is taken (~US$1,240 trillion).

The estimates for residual damages by 2060 alone range from US $ 0.3 to 2.8 trillion with an average of US $ 1.2 trillion per year.

According to Africa’s Adaptation Gap Report, Africa will still suffer large residual damages (loss and damage) estimated at $100bn per year by 2050 for below 2oC and $200bn per year by 2040 for above 4oC even if all cost-effective adaptation is realized.

To adapt and deal with loss and damages associated with climate change, the poor and vulnerable countries need financial and technological support.

To assist the countries, Loss and Damage Mechanism was established to address loss and damage associated with impacts of climate change, including extreme events and slow onset events, in developing countries that are particularly vulnerable to the adverse effects of climate change

Among its mandates is enhancing action and support, including finance, technology and capacity-building, to address loss and damage associated with the adverse effects of climate change.

Sadly, climate finance is inadequate. Developed countries objected to inclusion of legally binding loss and damage compensation mechanism in the Paris Agreement and instead pledged only $100 billion to a Green Climate Fund for adaptation and mitigation of climate change.

This is peanut going by the magnitude of the situation. A new source of finance is urgently needed! But we shouldn’t look any farther.

As a way of phasing out fossil fuels, after kicking the industry out of climate negotiations, we need to move to the next step: to make the perpetrators pay for adaptation, loss and damages.

The fossil fuel companies have not only contributed to climate change but also amassed huge profits in the process!

Top five oil and gas companies alone - ExxonMobil, Shell, Chevron, BP, and ConocoPhillips - made over $1 trillion in profits from 2002 to 2012 (and nearly $120 billion in 2012). Moreover, post-tax subsidies for oil, coal and gas producers amounted to $4.9 trillion in 2013 and are projected to reach $5.3 trillion in 2015.

The industry should either be fined or a legally binding framework should be established to make the companies finance Loss and Damage Mechanism including the cost of establishing the accurate cost of loss and damages or both.

On top of perpetrating climate change and making huge profits out of human suffering, fossil fuel companies knowingly mislead the public by hiding and manipulating crucial information and have manipulated climate negotiations despite knowing the impacts of fossil fuels on climate and human health.

Therefore it is not only legally logical but also morally right to contribute towards cleaning their mess.

We can borrow a leaf from the tobacco industry’s precedence.

In 2006, tobacco industry was declared guilty and fined $10 billion for fraudulently misleading the public about the risks and dangers of cigarette despite knowing the health implications.

Since then, stiffer laws and regulations have been enacted to regulate the industry.

Article 19 of Framework Convention for Tobacco Control (FCTC) gives Parties the power to use the law to hold the tobacco industry legally and financially accountable for its abuses.

United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) should emulate the FCTC to hold the fossil fuel industry accountable for the damages they have created.

As individuals, we can help push the cause by launching legal cases, creating awareness through various media and reaching out to government representatives to voice the issue during the COP 22.

Killexams : Dentsu Tracking supports UK government in the fight against illicit trade with launch of new digital Track & Trace system

GENEVA, July 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The United Kingdom (UK) has a new Track & Trace system for tobacco products, established and operated by Dentsu Tracking. The system, which was successfully launched on 1 July, provides the UK government with digital, data-driven traceability functionality across the entire tobacco supply chain. The system forms an important pillar of the UK's anti-illicit trade strategy, supporting Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs (HMRC) to fight the issue of illicit trade most effectively.

Dentsu Tracking Logo

"We are honoured to work with HMRC and help the UK in the fight against illicit tobacco trade. Our digital system is tailored to the policy objectives of HMRC and designed to address the specific characteristics of the UK market. This ensures that the system provides HMRC with the highest level of visibility and government control over the entire UK tobacco supply chain" said Philippe Castella, Managing Director of Dentsu Tracking.

Fighting illicit trade in the supply-chain

The new Track & Trace system established by Dentsu Tracking leverages the advantages of digital technology to enable the movement of legal tobacco products to be monitored (tracking) and allow UK authorities to detect and fight the different forms of illicit trade, thereby curbing the circulation of non-compliant products for which taxes have not been paid and that do not meet all legal requirements in terms of content and packaging. Reducing the circulation of non-compliant tobacco products enables the UK to increase national tax collection while protecting citizens and legitimate businesses.

The new system was designed in line with all applicable UK and international laws, including full compliance with the FCTC Illicit Trade Protocol that requires parties to ensure the tracking and tracing of tobacco products along both manufacturing and key distribution points.

Equipping government with powerful intelligence

By integrating world-leading data analytics tools, Dentsu's system transforms the collected supply chain data into meaningful information that helps UK authorities to identify potentially fraudulent events. The new UK system supplies HMRC with real-time detailed analyses, statistics and alerts, which some stakeholders have already described as "groundbreaking".

"At Dentsu Tracking, we strongly believe that the added value of tracking and tracing is only as strong as the level of supply chain insights that the system delivers to government bodies. Collecting data therefore is not enough. We generate powerful business intelligence that will help the UK authorities to carry out targeted controls and real-time investigations in the field" said Jan Hoffmann, Director Government Business

UK track and trace obligations

All businesses engaged in the manufacture, importation, exportation, storage, distribution and sale of tobacco products into and through the UK supply chain must use the new Track & Trace system. Track and trace requirements have existed in the UK since May 2019 and currently apply to cigarettes and roll-your-own tobacco. All other tobacco products will have to comply with the requirements from 20 May 2024.
