Jobs That Pay, Press Release Philadelphia, PA – Governor Tom Wolf joined the opening celebration today of the Johnson Controls Inc. (JCI) Commercial HVAC Pathways Vocational Lab. The North Philadelphia facility in the Energy Coordinating Agency’s (ECA) Knight Green Jobs Training Center will prepare high school students, reentrants and underemployed workers for good heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration (HVACR) careers in the growing clean energy economy.The Department of Education provided a $277,500 grant through the Job Training and Education Program to support the new lab.“Pennsylvania is investing in training more people to get the skills and qualifications for good careers,” said Governor Wolf. “We have a shortage of skilled apprentices and workers for jobs like this. By partnering with industry, educators, and government, we can provide the job training for more people to find a path to good-paying jobs, strengthen the middle class and make Pennsylvania a hub of high-growth industries.”Governor Wolf has launched an ambitious and bold strategy for Pennsylvania to have the strongest workforce in the nation. The governor’s initiatives include:• Creating PAsmart, a new innovative $30 million investment in STEM and computer science education, apprenticeships and job training that prioritizes partnerships among schools, employers and communities. The governor is proposing an additional $10 million for PAsmart to expand job training to more adult workers.• Proposing the Statewide Workforce, Education, and Accountability Program (SWEAP) in the 2019-20 budget. SWEAP builds on the success of PAsmart to provide opportunities for Pennsylvanians from birth to retirement. The plan expands access to early childhood education, increases investments in schools, and partners with the private sector.• Establishing the Keystone Economic Development and Workforce Command Center that brings together commonwealth agencies and the private sector address the skills gap, worker shortages, and other workforce challenges.• Launching the Apprenticeship and Training Office resulting in 138 new sponsors and 193 new apprenticeship programs or occupations, increasing the total number of registered apprentices to 16,866 statewide.• Starting the Manufacturing PA Initiative to support critical training in the important sector of that economy.• Joining the Skillful State Network, a nonprofit initiative of the Markle Foundation to emphasize the importance of skills so workers, particularly those without four-year college degrees, can get good jobs in the changing economy.The lab will provide both residential and commercial building maintenance and HVAC training through a collaboration between the JCI Learning Institute and ECA. According to ECA, students who complete the first 600 hours of instruction are qualified for entry level HVAC jobs ranging from $30,000-$40,000 annually. The lab will offer additional credentials that significantly increase a graduate’s earning potential.HVAC technicians are expected to be in high demand over the next few years. The need for workers will also be driven by the Philadelphia Energy Campaign’s $1 billion investment in energy efficiency and clean energy over the next 10 years.During the ceremony and ribbon cutting Governor Wolf joined Mayor Jim Kenney; Councilman Derek Green; Pat Clancy, CEO of Philadelphia Works; Sen. Christine Tartaglione; Michelle Armstrong, Executive Director of the Office of Career and Technical Education, School District of Philadelphia; and Emily Schapira, Executive Director of the Philadelphia Energy Authority.Johnson Controls International is a multi-national building technology conglomerate. It has three manufacturing plants and 1,900 employees in Pennsylvania. The Energy Coordinating Agency helps people conserve energy and promotes a sustainable and socially equitable energy future for all.

First Lady Frances Wolf Visits the Lion’s Pantry, Discusses Need to Increase Pennsylvania’s Outdated Minimum Wage to Help College Students Meet Basic Needs SHARE Email Facebook Twitter First Lady Frances Wolf, Minimum Wage, Press Release State College – First Lady Frances Wolf today toured the Lion’s Pantry – Penn State’s student-run food pantry – and met with students and administrators to discuss financial struggles many higher education students in Pennsylvania – and across the country – are facing. The First Lady discussed possible solutions to help these students succeed – including an immediate increase to the commonwealth’s minimum wage.“We know that over 30 percent of college students go hungry because they can’t afford proper nutrition,” First Lady Wolf said. “We also know that many of these students carry jobs in addition to their studies. Raising the commonwealth’s minimum wage would help these struggling students meet their basic needs so they can succeed in school and get the skills they need to attain jobs after graduation.”A Government Accountability Office report released in December 2018 found that at least one in three college students do not always have enough to eat. Additionally, 71 percent of college students today do not fit the model of a “typical” college student and may be financially independent, work at least part time, enroll in and stay in college at a later age, or have dependent children. These factors, when paired with other challenges students face like cost of tuition, lodging and/or transportation, books, and supplies, can create significant barriers to making ends meet.Governor Tom Wolf established Pennsylvania’s Food Security Partnership in September 2015. The Partnership includes the departments of Aging, Agriculture, Community and Economic Development, Education, Health, and Human Services. The partnership was established to address hunger in Pennsylvania across numerous fronts and coordinate food and nutrition programs and centralize coordination with federal, state, and local partners. As part of this effort, the Food Security Partnership leads the commonwealth’s efforts to better respond to issues that exacerbate food insecurity around Pennsylvania. The issue of hunger among college students has been identified as an opportunity for greater coordination and support.In January 2018, the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services took another step toward addressing this problem by changing Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) eligibility requirements for community college students. Under the new policy, community college students enrolled at least part-time and in a qualifying career or technical education program under the Carl D. Perkins Vocation and Technical Education Act or a program preparing students for a high-priority occupation may receive SNAP benefits if they otherwise qualify for the program. Examples of high-priority occupations set by the Department of Labor & Industry include jobs in technology, education, health care, human services, law enforcement, and skilled trades. Before the policy change, individuals who were attending school had to meet exemptions such as working more than 20 hours a week, caring for a child under the age of 6, or having a medical barrier to employment in order to qualify for SNAP while attending school.During the roundtable discussion, the first lady and students identified additional steps that can be taken to further support hard-working students – including an increase to the commonwealth’s outdated minimum wage. Lion’s Pantry President and Penn State student, Sayre Bradley commented: “We’re incredibly excited to meet with the First Lady today and discuss basic need insecurity amongst college students. This is a great opportunity for students to share their experiences and involvement while discussing what can be done at an institutional, state, and federal level to support college students facing food insecurity. Addressing the minimum wage is a great step towards making sure that no student is hungry.”The commonwealth’s current minimum wage of $7.25 per hour is the lowest allowed by federal law and trails most other states in the nation, including all of our surrounding states. That means Pennsylvanians doing the same job – especially in rural communities – earn less than someone in Ohio, Maryland, and West Virginia. November 14, 2019
Brisbane auctions ramp up this weekend. Photo: Darren England.Brisbane’s auction market is performing well despite a comparably low clearance rate, according to Corelogic.The analyst’s latest data reveals Brisbane last week recorded the nation’s lowest clearance rate at 50 per cent.For the same period, Sydney recorded a clearance rate of 76.8 per cent while Melbourne had 77 per cent clearance.However, CoreLogic auction spokesman, Kevin Brogan, said a deeper dig into the numbers proves the city is actually doing well in the auction stakes.Mr Brogan said, historically, a clearance rate of 50 per cent for Brisbane is good, particularly when you consider relative prevalence of auctions across capitals.“In Sydney and Melbourne 40 per cent or more of houses go to auction,” he said.“Fewer than 10 per cent of the properties go to auction in Brisbane.”Brogan says agents don’t necessarily measure the success of an auction campaign by whether the property sells under the hammer.More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this homeless than 1 hour agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor7 hours ago“It’s possible it (may) help you to negotiate a private treaty sale which is, at the end of the day, a successful outcome.”Brogan also said the average vendor discount for private treaty shows Brisbane, at five per cent, is operating in-line with southern capitals.Vendor discounts relates to the eventual sale price for a property compared to its initial asking price.“Sydney’s 4.1 per cent and Melbourne’s 3.8 per sent,” he said.Among the Brisbane properties up for auction this Saturday is 28 Loch St, West End at 9:00am 28 Loch St, West End.The draw of Brisbane State High School catchment will overcome most buyer’s reservations about having to raise a paint brush.If you have a wish to be river side, take a look at 34 Gordon St, Hamilton at 10:00am where a gathering crowd will see a very desirable waterfront holding go on the block.In addition, 4 Stubley St Wavell Heights at 11:00am looks set to make waves with its unique architectural design sure to draw in the locals.
ABP’s holdings in fossil fuel companies increased by €2bn to €10.4bn last year, despite the scheme’s pledge to reduce its carbon footprint by 25% by 2020, a pressure group has claimed.Responding to ABP’s annual report on responsible investment, ABPfossilfree – which includes participants of the Dutch civil service scheme – suggested that the increase could not be attributed just to rising equity markets.It said that it had based its conclusions on ABP’s quarterly statement of its holdings of equity, bonds and convertible bonds.The action group said the value of equity and convertibles in coal-related firms dropped by €77m, but ABP’s credit investments in the sector rose €304m in the same period. It also argued that 7 percentage points of the 31% growth of the scheme’s stakes in oil and gas could not be explained by rising valuations.ABPfossilfree further noted that the approximately 80 coal-related companies still in ABP’s portfolio had plans for the construction of coal-fired power stations with a combined capacity of more than 50 times the that of coal-fired plants in the Netherlands.The €389bn civil service scheme still had a €4bn stake in the coal industry, the campaign group said. It argued that the coal sector was “the largest climate polluter”.“By remaining invested in the fossil fuel sector, new coal mines, pipelines and power stations will be added and subsequently kept in use for decades,” said Chris Roorda of the pressure group. “Large energy companies pay lobbyists enormous amounts to block climate policy and spread disinformation. If we keep investing in fossil fuels, we will never get rid of them.”In a response to the pressure group’s claim, Asha Khoenkhoen, spokeswoman for ABP, indicated that it was likely that the scheme’s stake in fossil fuel companies had increased last year thanks to improving equity markets.However, she could neither confirm nor deny whether the pension fund had also made new investments. “Based on the currently available data we can’t untangle this,” she said. ABP’s investments are managed by APG.Khoenkhoen emphasised that ABP’s policy was focused on reducing carbon emissions across its entire investment portfolio, including property.She added that the pension fund had only gained a clear view on carbon emissions halfway through last year, when APG introduced a tool for measuring carbon output from the portfolio.“Only then could we start steering properly, and therefore it is possible that our investments at 2016-end were not reduced relative to the previous year,” Khoenkhoen said. “Because of our scale, we are a kind of supertanker which responds slowly to input. Moreover, we are still refining the measurement tool for emissions.”She added that ABP’s primary goal was not to divest from fossil fuel firms, “as other players would step [in] after we have left”. Instead, the pension fund prefers to reduce its carbon emissions through engagement Khoenkhoen said: “After all, it is the fossil fuel companies that must make the energy transition work.”In its sustainability report, the pension fund said it had reduced annual carbon emissions from its equity portfolio by 7m tonnes last year, and that it had increased its stake in renewable energy by one-quarter to €2.8bn through investments in local wind farms and solar panels in India and the US.It also claimed to have decreased its carbon footprint by 16% in 2016 relative to 2014, thanks to energy firms RWE and Eon largely divesting their fossil fuel subsidiaries, as well as significantly reducing CO2 emissions from its property holdings.Since the pension fund announced that it would double its target investments against social and environmental problems to €58bn in 2020, it has raised its actual allocation to €41bn.New investments largely comprised green bond and sustainable property, ABP said, and it recently added investments in mortgages for energy-efficient residential property in the Netherlands.ABP said it would keep engaging with companies on environmental, social, and governance issues and said it was fleshing out an “inclusion policy”, aimed at assessing and selecting the most sustainable firms.In an interview with financial news daily Het Financieele Dagblad, Corien Wortmann-Kool, ABP’s chair, recently said the pension fund would hold back on exclusion, “as returns remain key and we want to keep our investment universe as large as possible”.Recently, ABP was ranked in fifth place in the Global Climate 500 Index of the Asset Owners Disclosure Project (AODP).

A federal grand jury has indicted celebrity attorney Michael Avenatti in two alleged schemes.He is charged with fraud and aggravated identity theft involving former client Stormy Daniels, as well as attempting to extort more than $20 million from Nike.Court documents state that Avenatti stole “a significant portion” of Daniels’ advance for her book contract, and used it for his own business purposes. Daniels is referred to as “Victim-1” in the indictment.Avenatti allegedly took around $300,000 from Daniels. He represented Daniels in the “hush-money” scandal that resulted in President Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen, being charged with campaign-finance violations for paying several women to not disclose their alleged affairs with Trump.Cohen, who has since pleaded guilty to those crimes as well as others, is serving a three-year prison sentence.Before the indictment became public, Avenatti tweeted: “No monies relating to Ms. Daniels were ever misappropriated or mishandled. She received millions of dollars worth of legal services and we spent huge sums in expenses. She directly paid only $100.00 for all that she received. I look forward to a jury hearing the evidence.”Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, says Avenatti “had dealt with me extremely dishonestly.”In response, Avenatti says he will be “fully exonerated.” He adds, “I look forward to a jury hearing all of the evidence and passing judgment on my conduct. At no time was any money misappropriated or mishandled. I will be fully exonerated once the relevant emails, contracts, text messages, and documents are presented.”36-Count Federal Indictment Alleges Avenatti Stole Millions From Clients, Didn’t Pay Taxes
