State Correspondence Details a Deteriorated Natl Guard

first_imgGov. Sean Parnell holds a closed-door session with Alaska National Guard members Oct. 19 at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson in Anchorage. Colonels, generals and reporters were not allowed into the meeting. (Photo courtesy of Sharon Leighow/Office of the Governor)The State of Alaska has released letters, emails, and other documents related to the Alaska National Guard scandal (175 MB). A “privilege log” listing why some details in the documents were redacted was also released.Download AudioCopies of all notes, correspondence, memos and emails related to sexual assault in the Alaska National Guard were requested in May by Alaska Public Media. It took until Sept. 26 for Gov. Sean Parnell’s policy director, Randy Ruaro, to deny the request. Records requests are supposed to be fulfilled within 10 days. The state can take an additional 10 days to respond to large or complicated requests.Alaska Public Media and Alaska Dispatch News sued the state Oct. 8. Two weeks after filing the lawsuit it appeared that the state was willing to release the documents without litigation. A week later the state had only released few of requested documents.The media organizations advanced their lawsuit Wednesday to force the release of the documents before the Nov. 4 election. Alaska Superior Court judge Gregory Miller ruled on Thursday that the state was to comply with the records requests by Friday at noon. Reporters received a 596-page document around 1 p.m. today.An initial review of the packet shows a mix of emails, letters, and memoranda. Some are released in full, some are partially redacted, and others are blacked out entirely.The documents cover a period from August 2009, when then-Brigadier General Thomas Katkus expressed interest in leading the Guard, to September 2014, the month a team of federal investigators from the National Guard Bureau’s Office of Complex of Investigation released its damning report. The report documented favoritism, fraud, sexual assault, and violations of victim confidentiality.A handful of National Guard leaders, including Katkus, and a deputy commissioner for the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs have since been asked to resign their positions.While key details are missing, the documents do provide some sense of how the Parnell administration handled complaints about National Guard leadership.“The Command Climate Has Deteriorated”A number of problems within the National Guard predate the Parnell administration, with an inquiry from 1995 even finding distrust of the chain of command. Concerns escalated shortly after Katkus’ appointment to the adjutant general position in 2009.Beginning in 2010, a group of four National Guard chaplains – Matthew Friese, Ted McGovern, Rick Koch, and Rick Cavens – approached the Parnell administration with complaints about leadership.On January 6, 2011, Cavens submitted a letter to the governor describing an “intense pall of despair” within the Alaska Air National Guard as a result of “upper levels of leadership … cut[ting] hope and spirit by manipulation and passive aggressive behavior.” The letter describes the Clear Air Force Station as a location to “store officers of sexual infidelity,” and that the colonel responsible, Donald Wenke, would look the other way when one guardsmen in uniform would “get drunk and make advances on enlisted women.”A letter dated January 25, from Bob Doehl, a lieutenant colonel who now serves as an aide to Democratic Sen. Mark Begich, expresses concern that senior leadership is retaliating in response to queries from the governor’s office about the command structure. A September 24 email from Brig. Gen. Chuck Foster, who commanded 176th wing of the Alaska Air National Guard, alleges he is being pushed out of his job by Katkus and asks the governor to help him keep his membership in the Guard.“I believe that the command climate has deteriorated even further, and unless the course is altered it will not improve,” Foster wrote. After losing his position to Wenke, Foster was transferred to headquarters, where he lasted only three months.“It was very clear that Gen. Katkus really didn’t want me at the headquarters, that he really didn’t have a place for me,” Foster said in an interview on Friday. “Nizich seemed attentive to what I had to say. He engaged with me, he listened to me, but basically nothing came of it.”A December 29 letter from chaplain Friese likens participation in the Guard to “an abusive relationship.”Throughout 2011, Friese operated as the primary conduit for complaints about Guard leadership to Parnell Chief of Staff Mike Nizich. The packet contains 18 separate emails from Friese to Nizich, and a dozen more are identified in a log provided by the Department of Law. Nizich’s responses to the emails were typically brief but timely, particularly toward the beginning of their communication.When concerns about confidentiality are first raised on February 14, Nizich stressed that no details had been turned over to Katkus nor would they be. On December 22, chaplain Cavens charged that Nizich provided information to Katkus. Nizich denied the accusation then, and today maintains that trust was never breached. In a follow-up email between Nizich and Friese, the two attempt to repair the line of communication, and one chaplain offers “most sincere apologies.”After a phone call between Nizich and two of the chaplains on December 29, no further records of communication between the chaplains and Parnell’s office appear in the email log.“A Problem That Could Bite Us Both”In 2012, the Parnell administration received several inquiries from Sen. Mark Begich’s office about their response to National Guard problems. On January 25, just one month after discussions with the chaplains broke down, Begich chief of staff David Ramseur sent Nizich an email asking to discuss the matter.“I need to tell you what we’re picking up as it sounds like a problem that could bite us both,” Ramseur wrote.In March, Ramseur requested another conversation, and this time attached an anonymous letter from a group labeling itself “Friends of the National Guard” and datelined Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson.The letter described Katkus as a “corrupt leader” and also criticizes the governor.“While it is unfortunate what MG Katkus has done, it is even more regrettable that another senior leader in the State of Alaska has overlooked the misconduct. Governor Sean Parnell and his staff were notified of these issues on multiple occasions by more than a dozen mid- to high ranking officers in the Alaska National Guard. While the governor has listened to the concerns of the leaders in the organization, he has failed to investigate the facts surrounding MG Katkus and the corruption within the Alaska National Guard. For example, the following issues were presented to Governor Parnell or his staff: [redacted]”In April, Ramseur gave Nizich a heads up that the Departments of the Army and Air Force had been made aware of complaints about the Guard, and that the inspector general was looking into them (at Begich’s request). “Looks like they will be investigating,” Nizich wrote to Katkus shortly after being notified. “Call me.”Little came of it. The team mentioned that there were anonymous reports of “sexual assault victims not coming forward,” but they did not identify any grievous problems with the Guard.When investigations into the Guard made headlines in 2013, Katkus responded with a dig about Begich, and suggested the junior senator was grandstanding on the significance of it:“Begich’s statement … is a bit disingenuous. … Their only area of concern in their findings centered on how we did data entry in their new tracking system, which we quickly corrected.”An inspector general investigation requested by Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski in 2013 was also fruitless. When the results came back in the spring of 2014, members of Parnell’s staff welcomed them. Stories about the findings were passed on to the governor and posted on the official website. “Here’s an article from the Anchorage Daily News I thought you might like,” the governor’s spokeswoman Sharon Leighow wrote in an email. “Army investigation: No sexual assault cover-ups in Alaska National Guard.”It wasn’t until investigators from the Office of Complex Investigations came in at Parnell’s request in February that wrongdoing was uncovered.In an emailed statement, Nizich notes that the OCI investigation was not the first requested by the Parnell administration.“In October 2010, I contacted the FBI requesting an investigation into a series of allegations that included: assault, sexual abuse, misuse of resources, drug trafficking and transporting illegal weapons. The FBI special agent who conducted the six-week investigation was Special Agent Kevin Fryslie. After approximately six weeks, I placed several calls to his office and he finally reported to me that there was nothing to the allegations.Despite the lack of findings in that investigation and 3 other federal investigations, Governor Parnell called for a fifth investigation in February 2014 that finally uncovered the serious problems in the Alaska National Guard.”Our Lane’s Been InvestigatedWith investigations coming up dry, emails from administration staff in response to National Guard allegations took on a more skeptical tone.The office regularly received complaints from Chris Bydalek, a former contractor with the Guard. On February 24, 2014, Bydalek sent an angry email with the subject “Sexual Assault in the Alaska National Guard” that aggressively calls out Katkus and accuses the governor of doing nothing. Nizich forwarded the email to deputy commissioner McHugh Pierre.“I am about ready to fire off a response to this guy that he won’t like,” Nizich wrote. “Call me before I do. Thanks.”That same week, Bydalek sent another message accusing Katkus and Parnell of covering up wrongdoing. In a separate exchange about it, Katkus writes that all “the issues in our lane have been investigated” and Nizich responds by asking if they have a photo of Bydalek on file.In May, Bydalek sent an email to a half dozen members of the administration that describes a female member of the Guard being threatened and mentions Katkus’ name in the context of retaliation. When Nizich forwarded the email on to a federal investigator, he noted it was the “same type of information we heard before without any specific facts to back up the claim.”Both Katkus and Pierre were asked by the governor to resign after the OCI report substantiated allegations of fraud, mishandling of sexual assault, and misuse of government property.By the time this story was published, the Department of Law had released an additional 116 pages of records. It is expected to provide more documents Saturday.Alaska National Guard emails – 175 MB pdfPrivilege Log – 58 KB pdflast_img read more

File photoThe High Court on Thursday declared parliament membership of the Awami League’s Nizam Uddin Hazari legal, reports UNB.The single bench of justice Md Abu Zafar Siddique handed down the verdict rejecting the writ petition filed challenging the legality of his parliament membership.On 27 February, the same bench set Thursday for delivering its verdict on completion of the hearing, said Satyaranjon Mandal, lawyer of the petitioner.On 15 January, the single HC bench of justice Farid Ahmed felt embarrassed to hear the petition and sent it to the then acting chief justice Md Abdul Wahhab Miah.Later, the acting chief justice assigned justice Md Abu Zafar Siddique for hearing and disposing of the petition.The High Court felt embarrassed for eight times to hear the writ petition and gave split orders once after hearing the pleas.On 6 December last year, an HC bench delivered the dissenting verdicts on the writ petition challenging the legality of AL MP Nizam Uddin Hazari’s parliament membership.Senior judge of the bench justice Md Emdadul Huq declared the election of the Feni-2 constituency MP illegal while junior judge justice FRM Nazmul Ahsan rejected the petition.In 2014, Shakhawat Hossain Bhuiyan, a Jubo League leader of Feni, filed the writ petition with the HC attaching a newspaper report of 10 May 2014, stating that Nizam Uddin Hazari had been awarded 10 years’ imprisonment in an arms case, but had been freed from prison two years and 10 months before his jail term was completed.last_img read more

Victor LaValles Destroyer is a Fresh Take on a Horror Classic

first_img Planet of the Apes: Visionaries is Unpredictable, Stunning and WildVariant Covers to Grab This Week (8/29/18) Stay on target Victor LaValle is an author I’ve been hearing a lot about in recent years, and rightfully so. His work on modern day horror is some of the best on bookshelves today. Titles like The Ballad of Black Tom and The Devil in Silver are downright haunting. That is why I’m so excited to see his talents brought to the world of comics. Like famous horror authors Joe Hill & Max Brooks, LaValle’s work lends itself beautifully to illustrated material. What excited me, was the fact that Destroyer is a continuation of the famous Victor Von Frankenstein tale.When Dr. Jo Baker loses her son as the tragic result of an encounter with the police, she turns to science to find true justice for the death of her only child… by resurrecting him. Embracing her heritage as the last living heir of the Frankenstein family, Baker will soon come face-to-face with her family’s original monster, one whose quest to eliminate the scourge of humanity from the planet has been reawakened by recent events. But as the two must decide if they’re friend or foe, Dr. Baker will be forced to question if this battle for vengeance makes her the family’s true monster.LaValle in a recent press release had this to say about the stories strong topics, “The country is tearing itself apart. Hell, the whole world is tearing itself apart. All of us seem to be teetering somewhere between annihilation and hope.”  “Destroyer is the story of a woman, a mad scientist, facing the same dilemma. And her choice might mean the death of every human being on the planet. I’m so excited to be telling this story, and at this exact moment in time. It will be a hell of a lot of fun and thought-provoking, too.”Right from the opening spread, Destroyer grabs you with an intense look of the Monster still very much alive, in what looks to be a thrown of sorts made out of the side of an ice glacier in Antarctica. Dan Mora’s character designs combined with illustrations by Dietrich Smith are visually intense. I love the grizzly look of the Monster that sets him apart from previous iterations. Colorist Joana Lafuente keeps the tale looking grounded to current day themes as well as vibrant. Something I am not used to in many Frankenstein illustrations, but it’s a welcomed change for this series.We see no mercy come from the Monster who has only one single intention. Eliminate the Frankenstein blood line. Meanwhile in America, racism hasn’t become any better than it was back in 1792 when pitchforks and torches stormed the doctor’s castle in search of the “abomination.” This theme runs strong throughout the series but is barely touched on in the first issue. Our lead, Ms. Baker is being sought out by two employees from her lab and she wants nothing to do with them. A mother who has lost her child more than likely wants to be left alone. Though, these lonely thoughts drive her to do the unspeakable.Destroyer is just ramping up to become a purely unique look at the mythos behind the Frankenstein lore while bringing forth the ugly changes that have occurred leading into the twenty-first century. LaValle has yet to disappoint, and I’m happy to see Boom! Studios giving stories like this a chance. Look for it on store shelves this Wednesday, so add it to your pull list!Preorder now from Comixology.last_img read more

Smart Money How Artificial Intelligence Will Transform Wealth Management

first_img Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Register Now » September 10, 2018 Rather than making it obsolete, artificial intelligence appears poised to revitalize the wealth management sector, ensuring that customers can rest easy knowing they are getting the benefit of fresh insights and streamlined processes. Far from taking the human element out of wealth management, it’ll let us personalize services even better, streamlining complex processes and making the business of handling clients’ wealth more effective and profitable for all.Related: Artificial Intelligence Is Likely to Make a Career in Finance, Medicine or Law a Lot Less LucrativeThere’s a reason a tech giant like IBM and its Watson AI are dipping their toes into wealth management — our field has a great deal of improvement at our fingertips, the kind that’ll lead to greater returns for both ourselves and our clients. While the full suite of services wealth managers offer will never be as simple as pushing a few buttons, those of us knee-deep in the complexities of wealth management work are about to get a valuable new tool. Here’s a look at just how AI will be changing the wealth management business in the coming years.Data analysisConsulting giant Deloitte named big data one of the biggest potential disruptors in wealth management, and it’s hard not to agree with that assessment. While we’ve always been able to draw on detailed information about our customers before, the massive amount of info we can now pull from is unprecedented and is sure to change wealth management for good. Thanks to AI’s enhanced data analysis capability, wealth managers will be able to design strategies that take a greater number of factors into account, informed by a deep dive into all the valuable data our software has been able to gather. Soon, catering plans to client’s every specification and pinpointing solutions with incredible accuracy will be a wholesale expectation for the job, not a nice bonus enjoyed only by the biggest firms.Related: 5 Reasons Machine Learning Is the Future of MarketingSupercharged investmentAlgorithms have already transformed the investment sphere, allowing investment firms and wealth managers to make huge numbers of transactions without lifting a finger. If these pre-programmed trades were the baby steps toward a smarter investment strategy, AI represents a full-on Usain Bolt sprint. Artificial intelligence-based investing gives money managers their own ultra-capable (and fast) research assistant, and as the technology evolves they’ll only get smarter. Analyzing past performances, adjusting portfolios on the fly, and presenting new streams of opportunity are just the beginning for AI investing strategies. When you’re in charge of a client’s future, you want to give them the best of your abilities. With AI, you’ll be doing that and more.Accounting precisionTomorrow’s wealth manager will be able to pass off the most tedious and repetitive accounting tasks to AI. The time savings alone are enough to get excited about, but it’s the reliability of artificial intelligence in making these crucial calculations that’s the real game changer. Needle-in-a-haystack accounting errors way well become a thing of the past, something that should come as a major relief to the money management sector. Not every accounting mistake leads to unmitigated disaster, but it’s a great weight off your shoulders to know there’s a technology-based solution to simple carelessness and mistakes. While nobody’s perfect, AI will help us get ever closer to that ideal.Related: Top 10 Best Chatbot Platform Tools to Build Chatbots for Your BusinessThe limits of AIWhile AI certainly represents a big step forward, it’s important to remember what it can’t yet do. Rest assured that smart machines won’t be completely eliminating the human element of wealth management (for now), but providing a powerful supplement to the work we already do. Jumping into AI is a great idea right now, but before putting all our eggs into this one basket it’s crucial to take note of the shortcomings of AI when it comes to the most important aspect of wealth management.When people put their signature on a wealth management agreement, a great deal of trust goes along with it. Anyone with some experience in this sector knows how important the human element is, that people need to buy into you personally just as much as they’re buying into your investment and accounting strategies. While AI is a powerful piece of software, it’s still just that: lines of code in a computer. It won’t be able to build relationships the way a personable manager can, or summarize complicated concepts in a way that only comes from experience. The talented wealth manager of today isn’t in danger of being replaced by AI, only supplemented by it.What this means for wealth managers of the near future is that tech-savvy will no longer be optional. The sooner we get used to this revolution, the faster we’ll be able to save time for ourselves and money for our clients. A complete understanding of what AI tools can and cannot do will be a necessary part of the job description. Essentially, we’ll be getting more time to focus on the big picture: And that means getting the best value for the people who entrust us with their lives’ earnings.AI isn’t a magic box that we can put all our problems into and spit out money, but it’s a tool more powerful than any we’ve seen before. When we can wield this exciting new tech tool intelligently and responsibly, wealth managers of all stripes stand to get a lot more done, for themselves and for their clients. For anyone hoping to succeed in this fast-moving industry, that’s something to celebrate. 5 min read Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.

Housing Erosion Over Time

first_imgHousing Erosion Over Time 2017-10-18 Rachel Williams October 18, 2017 587 Views In a new study, Zillow asks the thought provoking question—what will housing markets look like in the future when sea levels start to rise? The study, titled “Climate Change and Home: Who would Lose the Most to a Rising Tide?” analyzed the types of homes, and demographic of homeowner impacted, based off of estimates of rising sea levels in the next 100 years.“We’ve seen the enormous impact flooding can have on a city and its residents,” said Zillow Chief Economist Dr. Svenja Gudell. “It’s harder for us to think about it on a long-term timeline, but the real risks that come with rising sea levels should not be ignored until it’s too late to address them.”According to Zillow, $916 billion worth of U.S. homes could be lost if sea levels rise six feet (which they are expected to by 2100). The properties impacted are forecasted to be in predominately less expensive locals, though 39 percent of homes will be among the most valuable.“Living near the water is incredibly appealing for people around the country, but it also comes with additional considerations for buyers and homeowners. Homes in low-lying areas are also more susceptible to storm flooding and these risks could be realized on a much shorter timeline as we have seen time and time again,” continued Gudell.The 20 metropolitan areas that projected to be most heavily impacted are led (not surprisingly) by Miami, Florida. Tampa and Fort Myers also take the third and fourth spot respectively, with New York City and Boston also included in the top five. Five other Florida cities are included in list (Bradenton, Naples, Jacksonville, Key West, and Palm Cost). Cumulatively, the homes in Miami at risk are worth $217.3 billion.Houston, which is still dealing with the more pressing and time-sensitive damage caused by Hurricane Harvey, also appears on the list at No. 17.While suburban homes are projected to most heavily impacted at 1,149,062 properties, there will be a projected 397,305 Urban Homes impacted and 210,462 rural homes impacted.While, 2100 may seem too far out to worry about now, Gudell cautions that, “With organized and committed planning, cities can help protect both current and future residents.”To view the full report, click here.center_img Share in Featured, News, Technologylast_img read more

Bullumkuttu and Borno express axis as were all restricted areas and routes since 6 am till the Vice President left Maiduguri town for Abuja late in the afternoon Those who say mostly working — generally the folks in the state Department of Vehicle Services and IT Services — note that of the 650000 transactions the new system known as MNLARS has processed since its launch in July the ones that have fully failed number in the mere thousands — a percent or 2Those who say it’s one big fail have evidence as well Below are some of the examples from the major to the mundane — gleaned from interviews with and public statements by license center workers insurers car dealers state officials lawmakers and regular folks dealing with the problemsNew plate delaysThis is the big one Some dealers have taken to issuing a pair of 21-day temporary tabs when someone buys a new car — so the customers won’t have to reapply for a second one when the new ones don’t arrive on timeSloooow performanceSome of the delays have been attributed to slow performance of the MNLARS software State officials said they believed this issue would be taken care of last week Other delays might be attributed to a steep learning curve for the new system which operators contend is the result of poor training and direction from the state But some delays remain unexplained and some people have been waiting since July for plates that should have come within 30 days111 workaroundsTo deal with things that aren’t working with MNLARS or that MNLARS simply can’t do state information technology officials have been pushing out frequent patches Band-Aids and workarounds As of last week the count was up to 111 "job aids" bits of advice and procedures that can work despite the system as it currently stands "How am I supposed to train people in 111 workarounds" Donny Vosen a private license center operator in Brainerd complained publiclyIncorrect fees and taxesA MNLARS feature called the "base value calculator" is often wrong That’s according to a lot of people "We know the transactions aren’t happening for the right amount" Judy Randall the state’s deputy legislative auditor told lawmakers at a recent hearing Sometimes it’s a dollar sometimes it’s $100 But Randall said it’s not clear how far off the miscalculations are "You have all these citizens who aren’t paying the right amount" she said "Are you going to charge them (if they were underbilled) Are you going to refund them (if they were overbilled)" Can’t fix mistakesIf a computer operator makes a mistake such as entering an incorrect VIN (17-character vehicle identification number) or misspelling a name and if that error isn’t caught early on it can’t be fixed — without canceling the entire transaction and starting over There’s a point of no return in the data-entry portion that’s frustrating many involved and causing delaysCan’t printA number of screens showing the proof of what was done can’t be printed or saved — but license centers want proof that they did what they were supposed to As a result a number of license centers have begun creating backups in a strained manner: screengrab paste into Word or some other computer program print At least two centers that prefer electronic records have purchased scanners to then scan the printed pagesOutages"The system is down" is becoming a common refrain uttered by license centers and heard by customers There’s been a lot of finger-pointing about whose bandwidth — or computers or internet providers or browsers — are to blame but one thing is clear: At any given computer terminal MNLARS goes down a lotLate feesAt $2 a pop it might not sound like much but at least 50000 transactions have been assigned late fees which are being picked up by car dealers deputy registrars and customers It adds up and critics say the only reason these transactions are "late" is because MNLARS doesn’t workCan’t expedite title requestsIn theory the implementation of MNLARS should have rendered the old "expedited title request" for which an extra fee was paid obsolete That’s because that extra fee used to allow your paperwork — and it was paper — to go on the top of the data-entry person’s pile so your title would get processed faster than others The new system requires all the data to be entered at the beginning so no expediting is needed Except everything is behind scheduleA number of workers have complained that the basic visual design of MNLARS is literally painful to their eyes A number of screens involve gray type on a gray background and on many computer monitors it’s simply hard to read
