NY Lawmakers Seek To Protect Renters During Pandemic

first_imgDennis Capati / MGNALBANY — Three New York lawmakers are working together to introduce legislation that would protect renters from eviction during the response to the coronavirus pandemic.It’s call the Safe Harbor Act and would prevent landlords from evicting tenants for unpaid rent accrued during the State of Emergency plus six months after.If passed, it would strengthen the 90-day executive order preventing evictions. Landlords would continue to be able to seek judgments for unpaid rent but tenants would have housing stability with no threat of eviction for non-payment in the meantime.

I bought it 11 yrs ago to supplement my social security. These are my only sources of income. With out the rent from my rental I can not pay my property taxes and several other bills. If the tenant does not pay their rent but is allowed to live there, I would loose everything. That is my income every much as if I had a job. If I loose it I will loose everything I have.last_img read more

Make a Plan: Vote This November to Protect Our Winters

first_imgmakeadamnplan.org  With incredibly close Senate, congressional and even presidential contests in North Carolina and Virginia that will decide the future of outdoor sports and the country’s public lands: outdoor voters have outsized power to make a massive impact. But to do that we must all vote. “As Americans, we all come from different places and have different stories. But we are united by the places we love to play. It’s not left or right, it is literally our common ground. I encourage all of those who love the land to join us and make a plan,” said Jeremy Jones, professional snowboarder and founder/president of Protect Our Winters. As an outdoor enthusiast, you know that having a plan before you head out is the best way to ensure you reach your destination safely. That’s why POW launched Make A Plan To Vote as a way to help voters understand how to get out and cast a ballot this November, even in the midst of a global pandemic. With that collective political power, POW is challenging outdoor enthusiasts to take a stand this November and vote to protect our public lands, rivers, and mountains from the effects of climate change. Defined not by common borders but rather a shared passion for the outdoors, this is the time to make a difference together as the Outdoor State. While climate change can’t be tackled alone, it can be solved by a powerful community of passionate people ready to step up for our outdoor spaces. You can join the Outdoor State today with a pledge to vote by texting OUTDOOR STATE to 65351 or by visiting MakeADamnPlan.org. Make a damn plan and vote this November to Protect Our Winters. center_img Voting Made Easy Whether you plan to vote by mail or in person, this tool is a one-stop shop for all the information you need about election day with step by step instructions to guide you through the process. Check on your registration status, request a mail-in ballot, set reminders for important election deadlines, and find your polling station all in one easy to use location. POW is an alliance of athletes, scientists, creatives, and brands committed to preserving our world for future generations. If the more than 50 million eligible voters who identify with any outdoor sport vote together as the Outdoor State, it would be larger than any state and one of the most influential voting blocks in the country. This community of skiers, snowboarders, hikers, runners, climbers, bikers, and anglers has the power to change the direction of global warming and protect our wild places. But to do that, those who play outdoors together must also vote. Jeremy Jones, photo by Andrew Miller “At 50 million strong, those of us who live to play outdoors are the largest and potentially most influential voting block in the country. But to have that influence, we must vote,” said Mario Molina, Executive Director of POW. “Protect Our Winters’ Make a Plan to Vote tool provides personalized, behavioral science-based nudges and planning actions that are shown to increase voter turnout by 9.1%, which is nearly 5 million people in the Outdoor State, and could be the difference in tight races.” There is a lot at stake this November. And Protect Our Winters (POW) is helping those who play outdoors to make a plan to vote and vote together for climate champions.last_img read more

Aegon to merge asset management subsidiaries under a single board [updated]

first_imgIn the reorganisation plan, Van Wijk is to become head of responsible business and public affairs. Van der Maarel, who will remain a member of the Global Management Board, is Aegon’s envisaged chief commercial officer for Europe.Aegon said forced redundancies would be possible. However, the company emphasised that the investment teams would not be affected, adding that this would also largely apply to the commercial client teams.A spokesman for the group later said that TKP’s fiduciary services would be ringfenced from the rest of the European organisation through the establishment of separate reporting lines in order to “safeguard the independent nature of these services”.According to the reorganisation plan, all four current offices are to remain operational and the brands Aegon AM, TKPI and Kames Capital would also remain. The €64bn Aegon AM Netherlands is based in The Hague, while the €28bn TKPI has an office in Groningen. Kames Capital operates from London and Edinburgh.The remainder of Aegon AM’s assets are largely managed from the US.Worldwide, Aegon has approximately 1,300 staff, of whom about 300 are based in the Netherlands. At year-end, TKPI employed almost 100 staff.Speaking to IPE’s Dutch sister publication Pensioen Pro, an Aegon spokesman emphasised that Aegon’s central works council (OR) and the supervisors still had to approve the plan.The OR has a six-week period to respond, after which Aegon AM will take a decision about the follow-up steps on integration.Kames and Aegon AM Netherlands have been formalising some aspects of their existing collaborations in recent weeks. Earlier this month Kames named Jacob Vijverberg and Robert-Jan van der Mark – both Aegon AM managers – as co-managers on Kames-branded funds.Kames CIO Stephen Jones said at the time that the appointments marked “a new point for greater co-operation and collaboration between the two teams and will allow us to optimise and strengthen our capabilities in this very competitive sector of the market”.This article has been updated to include a statement regarding TKP’s fiduciary services. Aegon Asset Management has confirmed its intention to merge Aegon AM Netherlands, TKP Investments and its €50bn UK-based subsidiary Kames Capital under a single board.The €317bn asset manager said it wanted to integrate its operational activities in Europe in order to improve decision-making and to achieve benefits of scale and costs savings.Under the current plan, the boards of the three subsidiaries are to be merged into a single European board – chaired by Kames’ chief executive Martin Davis – as part of Aegon AM’s Global Management Board.The current CEO positions at Aegon AM Netherlands (Erik van der Maarel) and TKPI (Roelie van Wijk) are to disappear in the new setup.last_img read more
