first_img PSA,  Statement Updated: October 28, 2015, 4:26 PMPosted: October 28, 2015, 2:19 PMHarrisburg, PA – Governor Wolf’s administration continues to work with federal, state and local authorities to secure the J-LENS aerostat equipment. Federal authorities and local emergency management personnel have confirmed the aerostat is contained and no longer moving in Montour County.Pennsylvania State Police (PSP) and the Pennsylvania National Guard will continue to assist authorities to secure the area and the downed equipment. These agencies will continue to be on scene to secure the area and ask all residents to remain away from the scene.Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency, PSP and the National Guard worked closely with local emergency management agencies from Schuylkill, Montour, Columbia and Lycoming Counties and numerous federal agencies to track the balloon throughout the afternoon.The tether attached to the aircraft caused widespread power outages across Pennsylvania. PPL Electric reports that the damage appears most extensive in Columbia and Schuylkill counties. PEMA has been in contact with PPL and continues monitor power outages along the path of the balloon.PEMA is continuing to provide equipment and logistical support to both local and federal agencies to bring the event to a close. There were approximately 30,000 residents without power at the peak of outages and approximately 15,000 remain without power at latest update from PPL.The state Department of Health and Public Utility Commission (PUC) provide the following safety information and tips during power outages:Prevent carbon monoxide poisoning. Some people try to power their homes using generators, which can release carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas that is released from many types of equipment, builds up in closed spaces, and is poisonous to breathe. Never use a generator in your home or attached garage, and do not connect it directly to your home’s wiring, which can be dangerous for crews attempting to restore power in your area. Leave your home immediately and call 9-1-1 if your carbon monoxide detector sounds. Get medical help right away if you are dizzy, light headed or nauseous.Never use candles or any open flame to light your home when the power goes out, because they can cause fires. It is recommended that you use battery-operated flashlights.Prevent electrical injuries. Never touch a fallen power line or drive through standing water if power lines are in the water. Electrical wires on the ground may be “live” and could hurt or kill you, so stay at least 30 feet away. Avoid contact with overhead power lines while cleaning up after the storm and call the power company to report any fallen power lines. Be aware that downed lines that are de-energized can become re-energized.Make sure food is safe. If the electricity in your home has been off for long periods of time, throw away any food that can spoil, like meat, poultry, fish, eggs, leftovers, etc. When in doubt, throw it out!Natural gas customers should immediately leave a home or building if they smell gas inside. Once safely outside, call 9-1-1 or your gas company. Never use a cell phone or any electrical device inside a building if the odor of natural gas is present. Do not smoke or use lighters, and do not attempt to re-enter a building until it’s been cleared by emergency or utility officials. Never attempt to re-light a pilot light.Contact information for all electric power companies in Pennsylvania – including hotlines for reporting downed power lines – is available from the PUC at http://www.puc.state.pa.us/consumer_info/electricity/electric_companies_suppliers.aspx.Harrisburg, PA – The Governor’s Office released the following statement regarding the untethered JLENS aerostat over Pennsylvania:“The Governor’s Office is in communication with the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency, the Pennsylvania State Police, the National Guard, and the appropriate authorities with the federal government. We are closely monitoring the situation, and we will work with the appropriate authorities to respond to any resource requests and assist in any way possible.”# # # October 28, 2015 Governor’s Office Statement on the Untethered JLENS Aerostat Over Pennsylvaniacenter_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

first_imgheartland fc  Ordered to pay N10.4m and N6.25m to two former playersHeartland FC has been banned from signing new players for the next two registration periods and until they comply with a ruling by the League Management Company (LMC) in separate complaints of unlawful termination of contract and indebtedness filed by two former players of the club, Maduabuchi Okereke and Fatuwase Alfred Olusegun.Maduabuchi and Fatuwase had in separate petitions to the LMC dated November 5, 2019, bordering on claims of overdue payables, wrongful termination of contract and compensation.While Maduabuchi laid claims for a total of N10.400, 000, Fatuwase asked for a total of N6, 250,000. In its ruling communicated to Heartland FC during the week, LMC noted that the club failed to respond to the claims of the players despite having been invited by the LMC to state its case through a letter dated January 28, 2020.The LMC said the players and the club did execute separate employment contracts (in the form of the NPFL Standard Player Contract), the duration of which was 10th November 2018 to 9th November 2021.The LMC rejected a letter of clearance purportedly issued the players by Heartland FC on August 28, 2019 and which was simply addressed “to whom it may concern”.It further noted that the clearance letter purported that, it was issued at the request of the players following which they were released with no further financial obligations from the club towards them.In rejecting the clearance letter issued the players, the LMC stated that a “contract or agreement must be signed or executed by each party to the said agreement. The fact that the clearance letter was signed only by the Club through its General Manager indicates that it cannot be deemed to be an agreement that binds the Player”.It further found that the players send separate default notice to the club on 30th September 2019, giving a deadline of 14 days for payment of the claims.The LMC ruled that the improper release or clearance letter issued by the Club strengthened the Players’ claims of wrongful termination; and noted that “as a result of the failure of the Club to respond to the allegations, we are constrained to determine the case on the strength of the available evidence”.Heartland was ordered to pay Maduabuchi the sums of N7, 200,000 representing the remaining two years of his three year contract and another N900, 000 unpaid arrears of three months consolidated salary stipulated in the contract before it was wrongfully terminated by the club.Fatuwanse was awarded N4, 800, 000 representing the remaining two years of his three year contract and another N600, 000 unpaid arrears of three months consolidated salary as stipulated in the contract before it was wrongfully terminated by the club.The ruling sent to Heartland and the petitioners further stated thus, “consequently, pursuant to Rule B9.45.4, the Club is banned from registering any new players in the next two entire and consecutive registration periods , provided that the ban will be lifted immediately upon confirmation that the payables overdue towards the Player are paid.“If at the end of the period of the ban, the sums mentioned in 19a and 19b above are not paid, the matter shall be duly reviewed.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
