PORTLAND, Ore. Amazon has issued recalls for solar eclipse glasses, sending hopeful eclipse watchers into panic as eclipse glasses prices skyrocket, and stunning sellers who say their products are verified safe.

Millions of people are planning to watch the total solar eclipse on August 21, planning elaborate vacations in the path of totality and ordering special glasses that let viewers look at the sun without damaging their eyes. from the west to east coast since 1918.

But many are now scrambling to find new eclipse glasses after Amazon issued a widespread recall starting early Saturday morning amid reports of counterfeiters. Retailers who say they sell verified, NASA and American Astronomical Society approved eclipse glasses are also caught in the recall, losing record profits with one week to go before the astronomical event.

The American Astronomical Society said while Amazon recalled some counterfeit products, they also recalled legitimate dealers and manufacturers.

Amazon recalls eclipse glasses out of ‘caution’

On Saturday, KGW photography staff received an email from Amazon, explaining the solar camera filters the station purchased for the Aug. 21 total solar eclipse were not confirmed safe for viewing.

KGW Chief Photographer learned the station solar lens filters were recalled this morning

The lens caps had the proper ISO number, 12312 2, which has been verified to comply with international safety standards, and it was manufactured by a NASA and AAS approved company. Amazon on Saturday said the supplier could not confirm the item came from a recommended manufacturer.

recommend that you DO NOT use this product to view the sun or the eclipse, Amazon wrote.

At least a dozen KGW viewers said they received recall notices from Amazon Saturday.

Portland resident Dan Fellini bought a pack of four solar eclipse glasses with his wife and a friend.

last night we were talking about the glasses, and thinking maybe we shouldn’t trust them, even though the Amazon page made it fairly clear they were legit, he said. Fellini received a recall email from Amazon.

Another Portland resident, Will Clark, bought eclipse glasses billed as and ISO tested, safe solar viewing.

KGW viewer Heather Andersen said she bought two separate sets of solar glasses and learned both were not verified.

give up, she said.

Ann Coombs wrote to KGW and said she bought glasses on July 5 so she wouldn’t have to scramble to find them before the eclipse. She received a recall notice on Monday, Aug. 14.

“With only a week to go it is very frustrating to find that all your good planning was for nothing,” she said.

Verified safe eclipse glasses on Amazon are now heavily marked up with some going for hundreds of dollars. Purchasers also run the risk of not receiving them before Aug. 21.

Amazon is issuing full refunds. An Amazon spokesperson said Amazon is responding “out of an abundance of caution” after reports of counterfeit products.

“Safety is among our highest priorities. Out of an abundance of caution, we have proactively reached out to customers and provided refunds for eclipse glasses that may not comply with industry standards. We want customers to buy with confidence anytime they make a purchase on

Amazon said customers who did not receive an email purchased glasses that were safe to use. The company did not reveal how many glasses were recalled or how much money was refunded. Anyone who is concerned about their eclipse glasses but did not receive an email about the recall can reach out to Amazon customer service.

Amazon suggested customers refer to the NASA and AAS websites for more information about safely viewing the solar eclipse.

AAS responds: Amazon ‘made the problem worse’

The press officer for AAS said Amazon responded to counterfeit reports by shutting legitimate retailers out. But Amazon’s widespread recall included some legitimate companies anyway. “We don understand why Amazon isn being more careful about who they contact we explained to Amazon the difference between genuine solar viewers and counterfeits, and we told them about our online list of reputable vendors of ISO compliant safe products. Instead of going after the bad guys they appear to be covering their backside and saying that no vendors can be trusted. This is hurting legitimate companies reputations and potentially costing them a lot of money. It has caused mass confusion within the eclipse chasing community and the public more generally.”

Fienberg said AAS is trying to work with Amazon to fix the issue but said, “so far we have not gotten a satisfactory response.”

mulberry document folio and Hysterectomy

mulberry outlet bags and Hysterectomy

There are unfortunate times in a woman life when she might experience reproductive problems. Examples of these are miscarriage and abnormal uterine bleeding. This may bring about depression, sadness and confusion. This is because not only could she be dealing with the loss of the child she is carrying or a frightening medical issue, she will also have to make a decision on the possible medical procedure that she may need.

Options to Counter Reproductive Problems

Presently, women experiencing this dilemma would be asked to consider two common options and these are the D and the hysterectomy. The D is the dilation and curettage procedure, which calls for the expansion of the entrance to a woman uterus so that a sharp instrument can be inserted inside. This instrument will be used to scrape or suction the uterus lining so tissue samples can be taken. Meanwhile, hysterectomy is an in patient procedure that calls for the removal of one or more reproductive organs like the uterus, the ovaries, the cervix, or the fallopian tubes.

Today, D is an option given for reproductive problems because it is meant to be safe and routine. However, there was a time when this option was not available for reproductive problems. Instead,
mulberry document folio and Hysterectomy
hysterectomy and many other major operations were given as the end all to most reproductive problems.

The D procedure

A D is not done often as a single operation. Usually, it is performed as an add on procedure to polypectomy or hysteroscopy. This is usually done for the following conditions:

Severe bleeding. This is usually bleeding experienced after menopause or bleeding that comes with heavy and long periods.

Irregular bleeding. This refers to irregular bleeding experienced from time to time, which includes vaginal spotting in between menstrual periods

However, your physician might avoid doing a D if necessary, for the following conditions:

Pelvic infections

Serious medical problems like lung and heart diseases which can make the administration of local or general anesthesia quite risky

D Recovery Process and Side Effects

Second is you must also learn about the recovery process for a D which may include side effects from the anesthesia like nausea. It might also induce cramping, irregular periods or bleeding before your next menstrual cycle. The use of douches and tampons as well as sexual intercourse should not be done within a week after the operation.

Ins and Outs of Hysterectomy

Aside from knowing which reproductive organs are to be removed and what particular hysterectomy procedure it is called, you should also know if you have a condition that is an elective or life saving reason for the procedure.

Of course, you also have to look into the recovery time of hysterectomy, which could take from four to eight weeks. Even a laproscopic or vaginal hysterectomy needs one to two weeks for recovery.

After learning all these, the last thing that you must do is to compare both D and hysterectomy. Be aware that while the two procedures are known to address female problems, a D involves lesser amount of time for its recovery period and is not that invasive. However,
mulberry document folio and Hysterectomy
the usefulness of D is only for problems that are not as severe as most of the cases that only a hysterectomy could address.

Two teams of astronomers have harnessed the power of the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) to detect the prebiotic complex organic molecule methyl isocyanate [1] in the multiple star system IRAS 16293 2422. One team was co led by Rafael Martn Domnech at the Centro de Astrobiologa in Madrid, Spain, and Vctor M. Rivilla, at the INAF Osservatorio Astrofisico di Arcetri in Florence, Italy; and the other by Niels Ligterink at the Leiden Observatory in the Netherlands and Audrey Coutens at University College London, United Kingdom. This is the first ever detection of this prebiotic molecule towards solar type protostars, the sort from which our Solar System evolved. The discovery could help astronomers understand how life arose on Earth.

“This star system seems to keep on giving! Following the discovery of sugars, we’ve now found methyl isocyanate. This family of organic molecules is involved in the synthesis of peptides and amino acids, which, in the form of proteins, are the biological basis for life as we know it,” explain Niels Ligterink and Audrey Coutens [2].

ALMA’s capabilities allowed both teams to observe the molecule at several different and characteristic wavelengths across the radio spectrum [3]. They found the unique chemical fingerprints located in the warm, dense inner regions of the cocoon of dust and gas surrounding young stars in their earliest stages of evolution. Each team identified and isolated the signatures of the complex organic molecule methyl isocyanate [4]. They then followed this up with computer chemical modelling and laboratory experiments to refine our understanding of the molecule’s origin [5].

ALMA has observed stars like the Sun at a very early stage in their formation and found traces of methyl isocyanate a chemical building block of life. This is the first ever detection of this prebiotic molecule towards a solar type protostar, the sort from which our Solar System evolved. The discovery could help astronomers understand how life arose on Earth. This image shows the spectacular region of star formation where methyl isocyanate was found.

IRAS 16293 2422 is a multiple system of very young stars, around 400 light years away in a large star forming region called Rho Ophiuchi in the constellation of Ophiuchus (The Serpent Bearer). The new results from ALMA show that methyl isocyanate gas surrounds each of these young stars.

Earth and the other planets in our Solar System formed from the material left over after the formation of the Sun. Studying solar type protostars can therefore open a window to the past for astronomers and allow them to observe conditions similar to those that led to the formation of our Solar System over 4.5 billion years ago.

Rafael Martn Domnech and Vctor M. By finding prebiotic molecules in this study, we may now have another piece of the puzzle in understanding how life came about on our planet.”

Niels Ligterink is delighted with the supporting laboratory results: detecting molecules we also want to understand how they are formed. Our laboratory experiments show that methyl isocyanate can indeed be produced on icy particles under very cold conditions that are similar to those in interstellar space. This implies that this molecule, and thus the basis for peptide bonds, is indeed likely to be present near most new young solar type stars.

[1] A complex organic molecule is defined in astrochemistry as consisting of six or more atoms, where at least one of the atoms is carbon. Methyl isocyanate contains carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen atoms in the chemical configuration CH3NCO. This very toxic substance was the main cause of death following the tragic Bhopal industrial accident in 1984.

[2] The system was previously studied by ALMA in 2012 and found to contain molecules of the simple sugar glycolaldehyde, another ingredient for life.

[3] The team led by Rafael Martn Domnech used new and archive data of the protostar taken across a large range of wavelengths across ALMA’s receiver Bands 3, 4 and 6. Niels Ligterink and his colleagues used data from the ALMA Protostellar Interferometric Line Survey (PILS), which aims to chart the chemical complexity of IRAS 16293 2422 by imaging the full wavelength range covered by ALMA Band 7 on very small scales, equivalent to the size of our Solar System.

[4] The teams carried out spectrographic analysis of the protostar’s light to determine the chemical constituents. within the massive hot molecular cores of Orion KL and Sagittarius B2 North).

[5] Martn Domnech’s team chemically modelled gas grain formation of methyl isocyanate. The observed amount of the molecule could be explained by chemistry on the surface of dust grains in space, followed by chemical reactions in the gas phase. Moreover, Ligterink team demonstrated that the molecule can be formed at extremely cold interstellar temperatures, down to 15 Kelvin ( 258 degrees Celsius), using cryogenic ultra high vacuum experiments in their laboratory in Leiden.

This research was presented in two papers: “First Detection of Methyl Isocyanate (CH3NCO) in a solar type Protostar” by R. Martn Domnech et al. and “The ALMA PILS survey: Detection of CH3NCO toward the low mass protostar IRAS 16293 2422 and laboratory constraints on its formation”, by N. F. W. Ligterink et al. Both papers will appear in the same issue of the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.

Discount mulberry on line Outlet An even shorter Amazon HQ2 short list

On KING 5’s The Sound Podcast, Simonson said he believes Amazon’s decision will come down to scalability of talent, business mix, time zone, and physical proximity.

On the podcast, Simonson detailed pros and cons for each of the cities he considers to be top contenders.

Atlanta: “It can get talent from a lot of different universities. It’s also a diverse economy. It does have retail like Home Depot. UPS and Delta are there from a transportation perspective, which could help if Amazon wanted to have a shipping business. And it’s also well connected to Europe.”

Boston: “Great education center. It’s very close to Europe to hub out of there. Boston is known for innovation, but large corporate innovation this hasn’t been the thing you’ve typically seen them do.”

Chicago: “It’s got a lot of consumer and retail industry there that overlaps really nicely with Amazon. Good connectivity to Europe and to a reasonable extent, Asia. on the list (of Top 20).”

Dallas: “Dallas has a pretty good history of relocating company’s operations. I think in terms of the tech talent pool and its ability to pull talent in from universities on a regional basis, it’s good. Dallas is kind of the home of outsourcing enterprise IT services in North America.”

New York City: “It’s by far the largest labor market. Certainly Amazon could attract a lot of talent. Certainly one of the cons is it’s already a pretty dense place.”

Toronto: “I think what you’re really wrestling with here is is the difference in countries in immigration is that a net positive or a net negative. The negative could be, you need a lot more people to go through passport control. A positive may be that the ability for inward bound immigration to live in Toronto could actually be a benefit for Toronto and Amazon.”

Despite bids from Vancouver, British Columbia, in Canada, Portland, Ore., and San Francisco, the closest city that made the short list was Los Angeles, more than 1,000 miles to the south of Seattle.

Amazon picks lean heavily east and in the sun belt. Salt Lake City didn make the cut, despite Utah growing tech populations. Denver is the furthest west of the cities on the list, though Texas got Austin and Dallas.

In the midwest, Chicago, Columbus, Ohio, Indianapolis and Pittsburgh were the only cities to grab a spot.

Not unsurprisingly given its tech heavy and university dotted cities, the northeast gets a lot of love finalists include Boston, New York, Newark, Philadelphia and, in a geographic stretch, Toronto. area. all made it to the second round. That means 15% of the possibilities are in or next to the federal government presumably important because of Amazon’s increasing visibility in the national economy and need to keep Washington on its side.

Amazon announced its search for a second, but equal, headquarters in September. Its requirements, laid out in a request for proposals, included that the winner be a metropolitan area with more than 1 million people, have a “stable and business friendly environment,” and be in “urban or suburban locations with the potential to attract and retain strong technical talent.” At least 238 cities and regions in the United States and Canada applied. The deadline to submit an application was Oct. 19.

Amazon specifically asked cities to include detailed information about incentives in their applications and tax breaks, economics incentives and land grants figured prominently in many of the proposals. New Jersey offered as much as $7 billion.

Critics suggested some of the biggest made the prospect of getting Amazon to move to town less financially enticing. On average over the last decade when cities have offered large tax breaks to lure companies, each job costs $658,000, according to Good Jobs First, a corporate accountability non profit.

Some tried to woo CEO Jeff Bezos with outlandish gifts, such as the 21 foot Saguaro cactus a Tucson area development group attempted to ship to Seattle (Amazon donated it to an Arizona park).

A few went with flattery. Kansas City, Mo., mayor Sly James penned 1,000 reviews about Amazon products (he gave them all five stars). And the city council of Stonecrest, Ga., voted to change its name to Amazon (no other city “has the branding opportunity we are now offering this visionary company, said mayor Jason Lary).

“Thank you to all 238 communities that submitted proposals. Getting from 238 to 20 was very tough all the proposals showed tremendous enthusiasm and creativity,” said Holly Sullivan, Amazon Public Policy.

Amazon will now work with each of the candidate locations to dive deeper into their proposals, request additional information, and evaluate the feasibility of a future partnership, the company said. It expects to make a final decision in 2018.

The prize is to become what Amazon says will be a “true second headquarters,” where it will hire new teams and executives, creating fresh geographic demand for well compensated tech talent.

Many cities are eager to win this purse, despite some in Amazon’s original home of Seattle who caution that with those jobs comes gridlock, crazy high real estate prices and the potential erasure of the charms and idiosyncrasies that made the city desirable in the first place.

Amazon estimated that its investments in its hometown of Seattle from 2010 through 2016 resulted in an additional $38 billion to the city economy. as it seeks to shorten the time for delivery for its tens of millions of Prime subscription members, plus builds out computing services such as music, web hosting and its digital assistant Alexa.

lily bag mulberry and IRS is stepping up enforcement

2nd hand mulberry bags and IRS is stepping up enforcement

Despite all the wrangling in Washington, the Affordable Care Act penalty for people who don’t have qualifying health insurance remains in effect for 2018.

And, in fact, the IRS is quietly moving to strengthen enforcement of the penalty, which is also known as the “Obamacare” individual mandate.

A perennial target for those who want repeal of the ACA, the mandate has come under criticism alsofrom those who say the penalties are not steep enough to keep healthy people in the marketplace so premiums don’t spiral out of control.

In the spring, the IRS says, people will have to answer the question about health insurance or for the first time their tax returns for 2017 will be automatically rejected.

“The IRS has determined that it is more burdensome for taxpayers to allow them to file an incomplete tax return and then have to manage follow up letters and potentially amend their return,” IRS spokesman Bruce Friedland said in an email.

And, he noted, in September the IRS started sending letters to about 130,000 people nationwide who didn’t answer the questions in their 2014 and 2015 tax returns. State and county numbers are not available.

As for 2016 returns filed this spring, he said it typically takes until the next summer before the agency begins to contact filers about information they provided.

The automatic rejections had originally been scheduled to take effect for 2016 returns, but the Trump administration changed course on that shortly after taking power.

By the numbers

Final adjustments for 2018 haven’t been announced yet, but the prorated penalty’s expected to be about the same as last year: $695 or 2.5 percent of household income, whichever’s higher, for a whole year without coverage.

The penalty started in 2014 and increased in subsequent years. Multiple exemptions are available, including for people with incomes under certain levels or who, in 2018, cannot obtain coverage at less than 8.05 percent of household income.

The IRS said 8.1 million households paid average penalties of $210 for 2014; 6.8 million paid an average of $489 for 2015; and for 2016 preliminary numbers show 4 million paid an average of $708.

Last week Republican Senators Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania and Tom Cotton of Arkansas unveiled a new attempt to do away with the individual mandate.

Toomey cited IRS records that show about 225,000 Pennsylvania filers paid individual mandate penalties in 2015 and that roughly 80 percent of those filers had household income under $50,000.

“If an individual or family cannot afford Obamacare’s overpriced plans, they are punished financially by their own government with the individual mandate,” he said in a news release, calling the penalty a “cruel, unjust tax.”

Their proposal would exempt people from the penalty on three conditions: if they earn less than the national median household income, if average premiums in their state increased by more than 10 percent, or if they live in a county with only one insurer on the marketplace.

In a Fox News op ed Toomey and Cotton called the proposal “something both parties can rally around” and said “it doesn’t dismantle Obamacare.”

Experts, however, have generally described the penalty as a key provision of the law that could not be abandoned without hurting the marketplace.

In December, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimated that eliminating the individual mandate would result in about 28 million more people uninsured by 2026, increase premiums by about 20 percent, and reduce federal budget deficits by $416 billion between 2018 and 2026.

The other change

Another big change this year is that people will be able to sign up for individual 2018 health insurance plans from Nov. 1 to Dec. 15 just half as long as last year’s open enrollment.

Premiums are rising an average of 31 percent across Pennsylvania for 2018 marketplace plans due largely to the uncertainty in Washington.

However, regulators here handled it in a way they said should keep many from seeing that increase if they shop wisely by comparing qualified plans both on and off the ACA marketplace.

mulberry for sale American twist on French rabbit in cider

Discount mulberry outlet shop bicester Outlet American twist on French rabbit in cider

The French know a thing or two about the perfect braise, so I wasn surprised when I tasted the rabbit in cider, Calvados (apply brandy) and cream that my host family served me during my semester abroad in Nantes. If you ever find yourself in France, I highly suggest seeking out this classic dish that finds itself perhaps under radar of many Americans.

Back stateside, I created my own slightly Americanized version of the dish, making just enough swaps to lighten up the dish and make it weeknight friendly while also capturing the iconic flavors.

While rabbit is a relatively lean protein choice, I use chicken thighs and legs for the braise simply because it readily available, easier to cook perfectly, less expensive, and my daughters may have freaked out a little about eating a bunny.

>> Recipe: Chicken with Cider and Pears

Both the French version and mine get most of their apple flavor from hard cider, which is available in many stores near the sparkling wines. But if you can get your hands on hard cider,
mulberry for sale American twist on French rabbit in cider
feel free to use half white wine and half regular cider instead. We like using sparkling apple cider the kind that mimics non alcoholic champagne leftover from family celebrations this way.

In a somewhat bold move, I completely omit two classic ingredients: cream and apple brandy. The cream, while luscious, not only added a ton of fat grams, it actually muted the other ingredients. While I certainly love an occasional creamy sauce, the main flavors of the dish are more pronounced without the cream.

Without fatty cream, the brandy became almost too strong. Leaving out an expensive ingredient that I don often use is always my preference as long as its presence won be overly missed. It wasn missed at our house. I use unpeeled pears instead of apples because I like the texture of their peels after braising, but certainly some tart granny smiths would feel right at home. A tiny bit of smoky bacon and a hefty dose of sweet, caramelized onions round out the dish, and make it a bright, slightly sweet,

mulberry shoulder bags An Exclusive Hedge Fund Interview with A

mitzy messenger mulberry An Exclusive Hedge Fund Interview with A

Directors Ltd is a single service provider. Its only service is providing corporate and independent directorships to offshore companies, predominantly (though not exclusively) hedge funds. Alan Tooker, Managing Director of the firm shares the role, responsibilities and key skills needed for an independent director to suceed.

Why should a hedge fund have an independent director? And what value do they bring?

A fund vehicle is a limited company, and directors have a legal responsibility to exercise duties of loyalty (usually called fiduciary duties) as well as duties of skill and care. If a director is not independent, there is a danger that his duties to the company may conflict with his duties to others, and that the investors in the fund may suffer as a result.

Independent directors can add value in their ability to review the operations of the fund. This is not the day to day running of the fund, but the strategic decision making process (such as a review of the investment policies and strategies of the fund). Also, the board’s role includes reviewing investment performance, monitoring the NAV calculation, monitoring marketing and investor relations and provision of information to shareholders.

Directors can also spend a lot of time reviewing and signing off on documentation, resolutions, etc that form part and parcel of the running of a complex business activity involving many different counterparties.

How do they differ from other directors on the board of a hedge fund?

Legally, all directors owe the same two duties of loyalty, and skill and care; to that extent independent directors are indistinguishable from the other directors on the board. However, because of their independence, such directors do not have the conflicts of interest that other directors may have, and so may find it easier to remain neutral when reviewing investment performance, effectiveness of the administrator, etc.

What are the key differences between onshore and offshore funds from a governance perspective?

The meaning of “governance” is hard to define. But if we look at it in the context of corporate governance, and then take that to mean the ways in which rights and responsibilities are shared between the various corporate participants, especially the management and the shareholders, then there should be no key differences. The recent and well publicised cases of manager fraud in North America have a common theme. There has been little in the way of corporate governance, and there has been little or no independent oversight of the management of the fund in all areas, including those of administration, NAV calculation, audit and the board of directors. In an ideal world, the corporate governance of all hedge funds, whether onshore or offshore, would be strong and effective, as it already is for most funds. It looks at whether the person has the technical knowledge and ability, and considers the person’s professional qualifications and membership of professional institutions.

In practical terms, the people suitable for the positions of independent directors are likely to have the following attributes:

Regulators in both Europe and America are taking a much closer look at hedge funds and hedge fund managers.

In America, the impetus for increased regulatory oversight has come partly from well publicised frauds committed by a tiny minority of fund managers. Generally, most hedge fund managers in the US have been unregulated up to this point, and, in the case of the frauds committed, the hedge funds have suffered from a lack of corporate governance. It is important to note that the overwhelming majority of American hedge fund managers act with honesty and integrity, and investors have benefited hugely from their success over the years. Notwithstanding this, most internal US managers (and many external managers who have US investors) are required to be registered with the SEC by February 2006. Two unfortunate side effects of increased regulation may be to squeeze out innovation and the smaller managers. Also, increased costs are an inevitable consequence.

In Europe, where hedge fund managers have been regulated for many years, manager fraud is not an issue. However, regulators are increasingly concerned about the opaque nature of a lot of hedge fund trading activity, and are looking at ways and means of establishing greater transparency. There are also concerns that managers may not be bound by the same codes of conduct as investment banks and others. Any rules which are introduced as a consequence will, as is almost always the case where regulation is concerned, increase compliance costs for the industry and possibly stifle innovation.
