Senator Brian Schatz officially made his move, hoping to transfer the responsibility of missile warnings to the federal government.

He introduced legislation on Tuesday, called the Authenticating Local Emergencies and Real Threats Act or ALERT Act that would keep warnings like Hawaii false missile alarm, out of state hands.

Schatz received bipartisan support from the Chairman of Homeland Security, California Senator Kamala Harris, and Colorado Senator Cory Gardner.

Schatz says while the state and local governments have been largely responsible for alerting the public of threats like natural disasters and severe weather, Hawaii false alarm scare highlighted some of the weaknesses in the state emergency alert system.

are 3,017 counties across the country. There are 50 states and 5 territories. Each has its own Emergency Management Agency and they just not equipped to make this determination. This really has to be the federal government job. Said Schatz.

Matt writes.

Two new arrivals and the small matter of a Jingle Bell Ball still to gowhat a week this is turning out to be!

Right, before I get over excited and start hyperventilating (which looks like this through text BREATHEshakeBREATHEjumpBREATHEshoutasloudasIcan) with excitement at the fact some of the biggest acts in the world will be taking to the stage tomorrow night, let me bring you upto speed with all the happenings on our show.

Firstly JoJo had a baby! We all thought there was more chance of us having a man made settlement on Mars by 2016 than there was of JoJo having a fella and a baby, but she proved us all wrong with the birth of the amazing, and incredibly cute (immediately ruling out Bodg or I as the father), Teddy.

We went up to see him last week and both JoJo and Teddy (and their Dad if anyone cares!) are looking amazing. However, this has left us with a JoJo shaped hole in our show and everyone was a bit worried Bodg and I were going to get a bit laddy.

I mean we had already put calendars of scantily clad women up in the studio and regularly did the show in just our pants. What a pair of ruddy blokes.

Anyway, we’ve had to get the calendars down and our clothes back on sharpish because the stag do is overthere’s a new lass in town!

Scarlett Moffatt joined us on Monday and she’s been brilliant!
ugg slippers sale clearance Scarlett Moffatt welcomed by Matt and Bodg on to the Capital FM breakfast show
It’s seriously like we’ve known each other for years and she makes me laugh constantly.

If I was to give you one bit of advice it would be to listen in next week because she’s proper good craic. If you’ve not heard her yet then get on our Facebook page Capital Breakfast North East and have a ganders at her best bits of banter from across the last five days.

Ooh, if you only watch one clip then make sure it’s her first ever link where she doesn’t know how to say her own name. Honestly, so funny!

So that’s you listening on Mondaybut don’t wait ’til then my friend, make sure you’re listening all weekend. Why? Well it’s only the biggest Christmas party the world has ever seen, our Jingle Bell Ball.

Coldplay kick it all off on Saturday night and they are followed by so many massive acts that if you read them out loud the line up starts to sound ridiculous!

LookCalvin Harris, Little Mix, David Guetta, Justin Biebersee what I mean? Seriously it’s going to be bigger than a ham and pease pudding stottie from Greggs, and you can never eat a whole one of them in a lunch break.

We’ll have all the backstage gossip and live performances on Capital across the weekend, and make sure you get the app downloaded too as there will be loads of exclusive stuff across the two days. Have a good one!

ugg slippers women sale Scams are costing Northern Ireland shoppers ‘

uggs slippers men Scams are costing Northern Ireland shoppers ‘

The other scams are fraudulent software support companies phoning to say your computer has a virus which is stealing all your bank details, fake websites selling counterfeit goods and “free trials” of slimming and beauty products which actually commit you to large monthly payments.

Damien Doherty of Trading Standards Service (TSS) said there had been about 50 complaints since the start of November about the purchase of counterfeit goods online.

He said the majority related to fake Ugg boots and GHD hair straighteners.

“People will see a website which says UK Ugg boots, UK GHD,” he said.

“The majority of the counterfeit websites are actually Chinese websites, you can do a ‘who is?’ check online which shows you where the website is registered, if it is China or the Far East, the chances are the goods are fake.

“While we may all think that we are too canny to get caught out by the scammers, evidence shows otherwise.”

‘Industry’Mr Doherty said the current uncertain economic climate was “providing an ideal opportunity for scams to thrive” and that TSS was “being inundated daily with complaints”.

“This is a multi billion pound industry, the reason they get away with it is the consumers love a bargain,” he added.

He said he was aware of hundreds of people who had lost anything from 150 to 5000 in fast loan schemes.

“A lot of people have lost a lot of money they can ill afford,” he added.

Anyone who has been the victim of a scam or has information about a suspected scam can contact Consumerline, which is run in partnership between the Consumer Council and the Northern Ireland Trading Standards Service, on 0300 123 6262.

ugg site Scammers send fake money orders

cheap mens ugg boots Scammers send fake money orders

Postal ServiceA few Portland residents have complained that they have been sent fraudulent money orders that they’re supposed to cash and then wire to another recipient. Postal Service. Postal Service money orders worth $1,875 on Wednesday in a FedEx envelope.

Not long afterward, the Vancouver woman received an email saying she’d been selected as a “mystery shopper” and that she should cash those money orders, take $340 for her time and expenses and wire the remaining cash to another mystery shopper.

As it should, the whole deal smelled a bit fishy to Ricketts and her sister, Linda Brindle. Brindle ran the money orders’ serial numbers by postal inspectors and, sure enough, they weren’t legit. (Note the accompanying box with postal inspector contacts if you should ever need to check the validity of mail.)

If you receive mail that you suspect to be fraudulent, contact the United States Postal Service Inspectors. The agency has a web site with more information and a mail fraud complaint form.

Or, you can find and call the closest inspectors office (in Portland, that’s the Seattle office).

“My sister is on Social Security disability and would never have been able to repay those funds,” Brindle wrote The Desk. “Consumers need to remember that if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.”

Brindle discovered the intended recipient of the money orders actually lived in Tulia, Texas, whose law enforcement officials were eager to receive copies of all the correspondence. Luckily, Brindle hadn’t heeded FedEx’s advice to shred everything her sister had received.

“To shred evidence doesn’t seem logical,” said Ron Anderson, customer relations coordinator for Portland Postal District, which includes Oregon and southwest Washington.

“Anytime we can amass a sufficient amount of physical evidence, in whatever form that takes, we can build a case and have a chance in pursuing and prosecuting these people.”

The holidays usher in a season for scams. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and FBI officials said they’ve seized 350 websites since beginning to target online counterfeiters in June 2010.

The Oregon Department of Justice warned online shoppers to stay on secure sites (those with “https” in the address) and to check out Web retailers before punching in a credit card number. Confirming a Web store’s physical address and phone number is a good idea, just in case the sale goes south. But you should really background any charity before writing out a check, warns the Better Business Bureau.

ugg black boots SC leaders react to Dominion Energy’s acquisition of SCANA

“We are making progress. Under the proposed agreement between SCANA and Dominion Energy, SCE ratepayers will get most of the money back they paid for the nuclear reactors and will no longer face paying billions for this nuclear collapse. But this doesn’t resolve the issue. Over seven hundred thousand electric cooperative customers face the prospect of having their power bills sky rocket for decades to pay off Santee Cooper’s $4 billion in debt from this. The only way to resolve this travesty is to sell Santee Cooper. There is more work to be done, but today, we are headed in the right direction.”

“(Fairfield County) has been a faithful partner with SCANA and nuclear since the 1980s. Over the last 10 years, we’ve moved heaven and earth to assist SCANA in building two nuclear reactors. There’s nothing in this sale that reaches an olive branch out to Fairfield County. The reduction of future rates by $7, I think it’s very small and it’s not acceptable. But, at least it’s an offer. The $1,000 payoff, to try to turn public opinion, is at least a gesture made. But, there’s nothing in this that addresses any compensation for Fairfield County.”

“South Carolina moved heaven and earth to get BMW here with 1,800 jobs. We moved heaven and earth to get Boeing to come here with a billion dollar investment and 3,000 jobs. But, this is a $9.5 billion investment of which more than 5,000 people just lost their jobs. This is the biggest fiasco in the state of South Carolina. I don’t know if this by itself is the solution. Summer Units 2 and 3 situation. We believe it is in the best interests of all parties to reach an agreement on this critical issue. Having certainty on this issue can act as a catalyst for economic development and it is essential for the Dominion Energy SCANA merger to move forward. The availability, reliability and cost of energy are often the deciding factors when businesses consider investing and we want businesses to have every reason to continue investing in SCANA’s communities.”

short ugg boots uk says Bush People stars deserve jail time

Lawyers for both sides argued in favor of the plea agreement, saying that the public condemnation of outraged online comments and heavy press coverage is a punishment all its own.

“The public is outraged,” said defense attorney James McGowan, adding that the high profile case serves as a deterrent for would be fraudsters. “The Browns have been exposed for what they’ve done here.”

In a signed statement included with the proposed plea agreement, 62 year old Billy Brown said he left Alaska in 2009. In court today, McGowan said that the family ventured Outside to try and sell a book on living in the Bush. They have been calling into the Juneau hearings from Seattle.

The nature of the case that the family is famous for roughing it in Alaska yet has admitted to lying about residency here for multiple years could hurt their brand, as an added punishment, attorneys said.

“It can’t help their show judge,” McGowan said.

Prosecutor Lisa Kelley said she’s handled larger cases of Permanent Fund dividend theft and noted that a trial could burden the cash strapped state.

“We are in a bit of a budget crisis in this state, and it would not be unreasonable to say we need to focus our resources the appropriate direction,” she said.

The case will return to court Dec. The family must repay the state thousands of dollars under the proposal.

Billy Brown, 62, and his son Joshua Brown, 31, agreed to repay the state for dividends they received despite failing to meet residency requirements, and to serve two years of probation, under a proposed plea agreement. They also must perform 40 hours each of community service that, a state judge emphasized, may not be filmed as part of a reality show.

“By submitting falsified PFD applications for myself and my children, I stole $7,956 from the people of Alaska,
childrens ugg boots australia says Bush People stars deserve jail time
” Billy Brown wrote in a signed statement, included with the agreement.

The father and son are among six members of the Brown family who were charged last year with dozens of counts of fraud and theft. Juneau Superior Court Judge Philip Pallenberg considered the proposed plea agreement at an afternoon hearing today in Juneau.

“PFD fraud is a serious matter. It’s a theft from everybody, every resident of the state of Alaska,” Pallenberg said. “In prior cases, prior cases that involved felony convictions, I think it’s an offense that deserves jail time.”

“I think there’s a high level of community condemnation for it,” he said.

The Discovery Channel series has traded on the image of remote and uniquely Alaskan lives of the cast members.

“Deep in the Alaskan wilderness lives a newly discovered family who was born and raised wild,” Discovery announced ahead of the May 6 2014 series premiere.

“No comment,” Discovery communications director Sean Martin wrote in an email, when asked for his reaction to the indictment shortly after charges were filed.

Today, Billy Brown and Joshua Brown phoned into the Alaska criminal hearing from Seattle.

The proposal calls for each man to admit to one count of unsworn falsification, a misdemeanor. The judge has not yet decided whether to accept the agreement and will take up the matter at a second hearing tomorrow.

The charges involve family members providing false information on dividend applications that some members successfully received between 2010 and 2013.

“I left Alaska in October 2009 and did not return unitl August 2012,” Billy Brown wrote in a signed statement. “Contrary to what was stated on several Permanent Fund Dividend (PFD) applications, I did not have a ‘principal’ place of abode’ on Mossman Island during the years 2009 13.”

The agreement calls for charges against four other members of the family Solomon Brown, Gabriel Brown, Noah Brown and Amora Brown to be dismissed provided they perform certain duties such as paying about $3,000 each in restitution. The charges against those family members were multiple counts each of unsworn falsification and second degree theft.

Under the agreement, Billy Brown must pay $7,956 in restitution and would have a suspended sentence of 180 days in jail, meaning he would not do any time behind bars if he fulfills two years of probation.

Joshua Brown who admitted to helping family members file false information on applications online would be required to pay $1,174 to the Permanent Fund Dividend Division.

grey uggs sale Sawmill mishap victim

WHEN Hogan Sawmill bench operator Steven Smith had a 50cm length of timber shoot up and impale his cheek yesterday morning, the first thing he did was to walk over to a colleague and say “check this out.”

That how tough 50 year old, an almost six foot tall bear of a man, and father of four is.

Even more unbelievable is the fact Mr Smith, who grew up at Nimbin and has worked for most of his life in the timber industry, still managed to talk to colleagues with the length of timber protruding from his cheek, before he was taken to Kyogle hospital.

A Hogan Sawmill employee, who described Mr Smith as “tough as nails”, said he was sawing an old log when the accident happened about 10am.

“The splinter came off the back of the saw and flicked up and got him in the side of the cheek,” the employee said.

“He didn have any blood in his mouth at all; it just went out the side of his cheek near his ear.”

“He is a very lucky man, or unlucky too, I suppose you could say.”

Once he arrived at Kyogle hospital and was assessed by a doctor, the SES were called to use the “jaws of life” to cut 30cm off the length of timber, so Mr Smith could be airlifted to the Gold Coast Hospital for surgery.

The Hogan Sawmill employee said they will be reporting the incident to WorkCover, who they expect will investigate.

“At this stage we are more concerned about how Steven is,” the employee said.

The sawmill notified Mr Smith wife and some of his children who jumped in the car and drove to the Gold Coast Hospital yesterday to be by his bedside.

Mr Smith underwent emergency surgery to remove the length of timber yesterday afternoon.

The doctor who performed the surgery told the Hogan Sawmill employee Mr Smith came though the operation well and was in a stable condition.
