— Michael Carey – Civil Rights & Disability Rights Advocate

ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, September 22, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Jonathan Carey Foundation was established by civil rights and disability rights advocate Michael Carey to protect our most vulnerable, which includes all people with disabilities. Thousands of people with developmental disabilities are being sexually assaulted and raped within New York State’s extremely dangerous mental health agencies and group homes and rarely are there ever any criminal prosecutions. The cover-ups are easy because Governor Cuomo has directed the internal reporting and the bypassing of 911 call systems and local police. The State’s MO, if it isn’t documented, it didn’t happen. The cover-ups of sexual assaults and rapes are massive.

Governor Andrew Cuomo is operating his mental health agencies that are rampant with sexual assaults and rape almost identically to the Catholic Church. On top of the massive cover-ups of sex crimes committed against people with disabilities the Cuomo administration is moving convicted sex offenders from prisons into group homes. These illegal practices must be stopped and the officials involved must be criminally charged and indicted.

http://www.adirondackdailyenterprise.com/news/local-news/2018/09/group-finds-sex-offenders-in-local-homes-for-developmentally-disabled/

The three agencies directly involved in this illegal scheme which directly endangers the welfare of incompetent and physically disabled people, a class E felony in New York State are; the Department of Corrections (DOCCS), the Office of People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) and the Justice Center for the Protection of People with Special Needs (Justice Center). The first two agencies are placing the convicted sex offenders and putting people with developmental disabilities at great risk of being sexually assaulted and raped and the Justice Center is guarding these illegal practices. Obviously, everyone knows that placing convicted sex offenders within facilities and group homes with individuals that are developmentally disabled is extremely dangerous and illegal.

The questions now are why would the Commissioner of DOCCS, OPWDD and the Executive Director of the Justice Center take such illegal actions to put our most vulnerable in direct danger? The orders must have come directly from the very top; no one in their right mind can justify these blatant illegal actions. Who would risk their massive salaries to place sex offenders in with people with disabilities unless they were forced to do so?

Here are the heads of these three New York State agencies;

Acting Commissioner Anthony J. Annucci
New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision
Anthony J. Annucci was named the Acting Commissioner of the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision, by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, effective May 1, 2013. Prior to that he served as the Executive Deputy Commissioner since October 2007.

Kerry A. Delaney is the Acting Commissioner of the New York State Office for People With Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD). In this role Ms. Delaney heads one of New York State’s largest agencies, with a mandate to provide services and supports to more than 130,000 people with intellectual or developmental disabilities…
There are distinct reasons why these individuals have still not been confirmed by the New York State Senate and have been acting Commissioners for years.

Denise Miranda is the Executive Director of the NYS Justice Center for the Protection of People with Special Needs. Thousands of reported sexual assaults and rapes of people with disabilities are reported to this fraudulent and extremely corrupt State agency and almost all are covered-up. Miss Miranda is running an agency that systematically obstructs justice, discriminates and violates the civil rights of people with special needs and protects countless sexual predators. The Justice Center has told a 75 year old mother who has fought ferociously to keep a sex offender from being moved from a maximum security prison into her son’s group home that they could do nothing.

As these civil rights and human rights atrocities come more to light the Cuomo administration spokespeople claim there are protections in place to protect the developmentally disabled from sexual assaults. Nothing can be further from the truth; there are no significant measures in place to protect residents from sexual abuse or from being raped. Here is what a convicted sexual predator and pedophile said of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s system, it is “a predators dream.”

"The lack of supervision there made it easy to do what I did," DeProspero said in a handwritten affidavit obtained by The Associated Press. "I could have stayed in that house for years and abused him every day without anybody even noticing at all. It was a predator's dream."

Numerous appeals to Governor Cuomo and Attorney General Underwood to immediately stop these crimes continue to be ignored. Federal criminal and civil rights investigations have been requested by Michael Carey, the federal government has to swiftly intervene to stop this lawlessness.

Governor Cuomo and his administration are out of control and appear to have no regard for the safety or equal rights of 1,000,000 New Yorkers with disabilities. It is time for the top officials involved in these criminal cover-ups of rapes and deaths and the placement of sex offenders with the disabled which are civil rights atrocities to be indicted and held fully accountable for their crimes.

NY Gov. Cuomo allowing convicted sex offenders to live in group homes with the disabled

Governor Andrew Cuomo has been protecting and shielding countless sexual predators and pedophiles within the New York State Mental Health Care system from prosecution for over a decade, he must be removed and prosecuted for numerous State and federal crimes

Thousands of primarily women and children are being sexually assaulted and raped within New York State’s extremely dangerous mental health agencies and group homes and rarely are there ever any criminal prosecutions. The cover-ups are easy because Governor Cuomo has directed the internal reporting and the bypassing of 911 call systems and local police. The State’s MO, if it isn’t documented, it didn’t happen.

On National Concussion Awareness Day, New York Attorneys Write Open Letter To Parents Of Children Involved In Sports

The best advice for any parent, coach, trainer, or teacher is, “When in doubt keep them out.””

— Shana De Caro

PLEASANTVILLE, NEW YORK, USA, September 21, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Friday, September 21st, National Concussion Awareness Day® will raise awareness about the dangers and consequences of concussions through local educational events, social media, fundraisers, and expert discussions in the media.

To mark the day, nationally recognized New York brain injury lawyers De Caro & Kaplen, LLP, have written an open letter to parents of children involved in sports. The letter, published on the firm’s website, highlights the serious nature of concussions, the signs and symptoms, and what parents should do if they suspect their child has suffered a brain injury.

In an excerpt from the letter, Michael Kaplen, a partner in the firm, and three-term past president of the Brain Injury Association of New York State, explains a seemingly minor accident can cause serious injury to the brain but is usually invisible. According to Kaplen, “A concussion is a brain injury that must be taken seriously. Working with brain injury victims for over thirty-five years, we’ve seen many people just don’t believe an injury to the brain could have resulted from a minor collision, when there is no loss of consciousness, or no physical contact with the skull.”

Kaplen continued, “Following a concussion, individuals may appear to be normal because there are no visible signs of brain injury. But, a brain injury is not a broken bone, and brain injury victims do not always have physical symptoms.”

In a poll by the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, nearly 9 out of 10 adults in the US failed to correctly define a concussion. While a study in the Journal of Athletic Training, found that 50% of concussions go unreported.

Concussion symptoms commonly include any one or more of the following: headache, confusion, difficulty remembering or paying attention, balance problems or dizziness, feeling sluggish, hazy, foggy, or groggy, feeling irritable, more emotional, or “down”, nausea or vomiting, sensitive to light or noise, double or blurry vision, slowed reaction time, sleep problems, or loss of consciousness.

According to Shana De Caro, a senior partner at De Caro & Kaplen, LLP, and secretary of the Brain Injury Association of America, “Concussions can be difficult to recognize as symptoms vary from individual to individual. We recommend that parents seek professional advice and assistance anytime a concussion is suspected. Any child with a suspected concussion should not be permitted to resume athletic activities until properly evaluated by a trained professional.” De Caro continued, the best advice for any parent, coach, trainer, or teacher is, “When in doubt keep them out.”

National Concussion Awareness Day® is recognized on the third Friday of each September yearly.

De Caro & Kaplen’s letter to parents can be found on the firm’s website at https://brainlaw.com/brain-injuries/sports-concussions/

De Caro & Kaplen, LLP is a nationally recognized personal injury law firm concentrating their practice on representing victims of head trauma caused by car, bus, and truck collisions, pedestrians struck by vehicles, unsafe construction sites and buildings, and brain damage caused by hospital or medical malpractice. De Caro & Kaplen, LLP is the only law firm in the nation whose partners have both been elected to chair the American Association of Justice, Traumatic Brain Injury Litigation Group.

EJL Wireless Research Reports U.S. Outdoor Small Cell Antenna Shipments Up 84% in 2017

Product Code: USOSCMAF-S-2018

Earl Lum, President EJL Wireless Research

New state legislation for small cell bills driving deployments across the United States;
Antenna port counts increasing to support 4×4 MIMO, CBRS, and LAA

The shape and size of the antenna with regards to visual impact on the site is sometimes more critical than the RF performance of the antenna.”

— Earl J. Lum, President

HALF MOON BAY, CA, UNITED STATES, September 21, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — U.S. outdoor small cell antenna shipments increased 84% in 2017 according to the latest report from EJL Wireless Research titled “U.S. Outdoor Small Cell Antenna Market Analysis and Forecast, 2018-2022 1st Edition.” “We are excited to continue to pave the way within the wireless market research industry with innovative research such as this report,” says founder and President, Earl Lum. EJL Wireless Research is forecasting that U.S. outdoor small cell antenna shipments will increase by 75% in 2018 due to increasing demand from all four U.S. national mobile operators as well as neutral host operators.

EJL Wireless Research estimates Alpha Wireless was the top U.S. outdoor small cell antenna vendor for shipments volumes in 2017, followed by Ericsson, and Galtronics. We also note that quasi omni antennas captured the largest revenues in 2017 while panel antennas had the largest unit market share.

As the U.S. mobile operators continue to move forward on their respective outdoor small cell strategies, advances in higher port count antennas are following the path already taken by macrocell BTS antennas. The need to support multiple frequency bands including traditional cellular (700/800MHz), PCS (1900MHz), and AWS/WCS (2100/2300MHz) spectrum as well new frequency bands such as 3.5GHz for CBRS and 5.8GHz for licensed assisted access (LAA) is driving up antenna port counts. Additionally, the need to support 2×2 or 4×4 MIMO is also driving antenna port counts. These factors are pushing the outdoor small cell antenna market towards higher levels of integration while maintaining a minimal footprint design.

“Within the outdoor small cell antenna market, the shape and size of the antenna with regards to visual impact on the site is sometimes more critical than the RF performance of the antenna,” says Lum. While the U.S. mobile operators have restricted new entrants for their macrocell BTS antennas approved vendor lists, they are allowing new vendors for outdoor small cells antennas. It remains possible for new antenna vendors to supply the U.S. mobile operators and neutral host operators if they can offer a unique product or service capability compared with existing vendors.

North Dakota Mesothelioma Victims Center Now Urges a Navy Veteran with Mesothelioma in North Dakota to Call for On the Spot Access to the Nation’s Top Attorneys for Much Compensation Results

— North Dakota Mesothelioma Victims Center

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, September 21, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The North Dakota Mesothelioma Victims Center is urging a US Navy Veteran who has just been diagnosed with mesothelioma in North Dakota or their family to please call them anytime at 800-714-0303 so they do not mistakenly hire an inexperienced lawyer/law firm and in doing so shortchange themselves on financial compensation. As the group would like to explain anytime, "There is a direct relationship between being represented by some of the nation's most skilled mesothelioma attorneys and a diagnosed person receiving the very best possible financial compensation results." http://NorthDakota.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

"When it comes to mesothelioma compensation for a US Navy Veteran, it is incredibly important the lawyers you hire have years of experience with Navy Veteran mesothelioma compensation claims. Hiring a local car-accident attorney or personal-injury attorneys to handle a complex mesothelioma compensation claim could result in a Navy Veteran with mesothelioma getting dramatically shortchanged as we would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303. When we mention shortchanged we are referring to hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost compensation-or more." http://NorthDakota.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The North Dakota Mesothelioma Victims Center unsurpassed services are available to a person with mesothelioma in Fargo, Bismarck, Grand Forks, Minot, Williston, West Fargo, Dickinson, Mandan or anywhere in North Dakota.

For the best possible treatment options in North Dakota we strongly recommend the following heath care facility in nearby Minnesota with the offer to help a diagnosed victim, or their family get to the right physicians at this world class hospital. The Mayo Clinic Rochester, Minnesota: https://www.mayoclinic.org/.

High risk occupations for asbestos exposure in North Dakota include US Navy Veterans, power plant workers, oil refinery workers, construction workers, plumbers, electricians, public utility workers, welders, Camp Grafton, Minot Air Force Base, Grand Forks Air Force Base, machinists, welders, mechanics, auto/truck repair technicians, and pipefitters.

The Mesothelioma Victims Center is a national advocate 100% focused in on doing everything possible to ensure people with mesothelioma in North Dakota and every state receive the best possible financial compensation settlement. The group offers on the spot access to some of the nation’s most skilled and experienced mesothelioma attorneys because to receive the very best possible financial compensation a diagnosed person must be represented by the most capable mesothelioma lawyers in the United States as they would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

MBS Secure Announces Strategic Partnership with PCIHIPAA for Comprehensive HIPAA Compliance Solution

Partnership Addresses a Key Challenge for Many Dental Organizations Safeguarding Electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI)

We are confident that our clients will find the program easy to implement and provide peace of mind knowing they are taking the appropriate safeguards to protect their patient’s private information.”

— Jason Post CEO, MBS Secure

PEARLAND, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, September 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — MBS Secure, provider of The Complete Cloud™, is pleased to announce its new partnership with PCIHIPAA, a leading Payments Card Industry (PCI) and HIPAA compliance provider. The partnership is focused on protecting MBS Secure clients from the onslaught of HIPAA violations which include ransomware attacks and data breaches impacting medical and dental practices throughout the United States.

According to the site HHS.gov (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services), over 870,000 patient records were breached just in the month of July 2018. Protected Health Information (PHI) continues to be under attack as hackers strive to monetize the stolen data on the dark web. The types of HIPAA violations most often identified are:

Impermissible uses and disclosures of protected health information (PHI)
Lack of technology safeguards of PHI
Lack of adequate contingency planning in case of a data breach or ransomware attack
Lack of administrative safeguards of PHI
Lack of a mandatory HIPAA risk assessment
Lack of executed Business Associate Agreements
Lack of employee training and updated policies and procedures

“We vetted many HIPAA compliance providers and believe PCIHIPAA’s OfficeSafe Compliance Program is the right solution for our clients. Our partnership adds another quality layer of training and protection to The Complete Cloud™. said Jason Post, CEO, MBS Secure. “We are confident that our clients will find the program easy to implement and provide peace of mind knowing that they are taking the appropriate safeguards to protect their patient’s private information. Best of all, they can do it for a very affordable price.”

PCIHIPAA’s OfficeSafe Compliance Program provides a number of key benefits that enables busy and growing dental practices to easily comply with strict HIPAA regulations. The OfficeSafe Compliance Program includes, but is not limited to:

1) HIPAA Policies and Procedures: an online platform to easily create, update, record and review your HIPAA Policies and Procedures
2) The HIPAA Checklist: a roadmap to track your HIPAA compliance progress
3) Online HIPAA Employee Training: videos, quizzes and other training tools to keep your staff informed and updated on the latest HIPAA Regulations
4) Privacy and Security Compliance Webinars: live and recorded webinars to keep team members engaged and informed
​​5) $250,000 Data Breach and Network Security Insurance Coverage: guaranteed protection and incident response resources in case of a data breach or other security incident
6) Identity Theft Restoration Protection: identity restoration for doctors and their families
7) Annual PCI Compliance and Certification: includes annual SAQ’s and quarterly penetration testing of IP addresses

“We are excited to be working with MBS Secure. Their infrastructure and expertise provide dental practices with peace of mind.” said Jeff Broudy, CEO of PCIHIPAA. “We find that many practices don't have the resources to navigate HIPAA law, and are unaware of their most common vulnerabilities. Adding the OfficeSafe Compliance Program to MBS Secure’s suite of services will provide an easy and complete solution for dental practices, large and small. We invite every MBS client to conduct a Complimentary Self-Assessment to quickly identity key vulnerabilities in their practice.”

MESA, AZ, UNITED STATES, September 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The law offices of Lerner and Rowe have once again been struck with a major case of puppy love. As such, they’ve announced that they will be sponsoring the #LovePup Family Fest at Vertuccio Farms in Mesa on September 28 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Doing so makes this the third major event the law firm has supported of the #LovePup Foundation this year. The other two include a $25k donation to help launch #LovePup’s Hip to Chip program and a community sponsorship for the #LovePup Family Fest in Tucson. Admission is free for the Mesa Family Fest, but donations have been requested to help offset the costs of caring for foster dogs until they get adopted in a forever home.

Attorney Kevin Rowe’s own daughter adopted her beloved fur-baby from the #LovePup Foundation. He shared the following when asked why the law offices of Lerner and Rowe became so heavily involved with the Foundation, “LovePup’s advocacy efforts go beyond caring for displaced, neglected and unwanted dogs. They not only foster dogs and facilitate adoptions, but through their Hip to Chip program they also make sure that once a dog is placed they don’t get lost again. #LovePup’s compassion and drive to make a difference is what makes a partnership with the Foundation a true pleasure for our team.”

#LovePup conveniently accepts financial donations online. For those not sure what to donate, here’s a breakdown on how a minimal donation can make a world of difference:

+ $10 = Puppy Pads for a week
+ $20 = Dog Food for a week
+ $50 = Vaccinations or a spay/neuter
+ $80 = Dog Food to feed 40 dogs for a week
+ $100 = Puppy Food for 12 pups for a week

Aside from financial donations, #LovePup put together a list of every day essential health and wellness items to bring to the Family Fest. These items include: dog food, dog treats, puppy food, trash bags, collars, leashed, toys, puppy pads and cleaning supplies.

And since this event is for the whole family, well-behaved pups are welcome to join in the fun. Evening activities include pet adoptions, food, kid’s activities and live music performed by Madison Beer, Ocean Park Standoff and The Rich Berra Band!

Attorney William B. Blanchard reviews the case of UBS AG v. HSH Nordbank AG, involving jurisdiction clauses in complex contract litigation

Gaia Title, Inc./William B. Blanchard, Esq. (N/A:N/A)

The documentation in this matter consists of more than 500 pages; its size and complexity make it easier to understand … why many senior banking figures … had little understanding of this market”

— William B. Blanchard, Attorney in Illinois

ST. CHARLES, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES, September 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — In the first article of his instructional series of articles, Real Estate Lawyer William B. Blanchard reviews the case of UBS AG v. HSH Nordbank AG, E.W.C.A. Civ. 585; WL 1657158: "Interpreting jurisdiction clauses in complex contract litigation over collateralized debt, where one party has sued in New York courts and opposing party has invoked jurisdiction of English courts, Court of Appeal upholds lower court’s ruling that rejected resort to English courts."

Mr. Blanchard first provides an overview of the case. This appeal turns on the construction of jurisdiction clauses. The principal issue is whether the English jurisdiction clause in one of the documents recording the complex transaction between the parties applies to the claims in the action in England for the negative declaration. The English court of first instance concluded that it did not. This dispute concerns derivatives in relation to the property market, or Collateralized Debt Obligations (CDOs). The contractual documentation in this matter consists of more than 500 pages; its size and complexity, which is no doubt duplicated in many other transactions, make it easier to understand, if not to excuse, why many senior banking figures throughout the world had little understanding of this market and of the very high risks their institutions were undertaking.

HSH Nordbank AG (HSH) is a commercial bank incorporated in Germany with dual headquarters in Hamburg and Kiel. The first claimant, UBS AG, is incorporated in Switzerland, where it has its head office, and has substantial offices worldwide, including in New York and London.

The second claimant, UBS Securities LLC (UBS LLC), is an affiliate of UBS. It is incorporated in the United States and has its principal place of business here. The appellate court generally refers to either or both of them as “UBS.”

The relevant transactions took place in 2002/2003 between UBS and LB Kiel. HSH has assumed all material assets, rights and obligations of LB Kiel, and it is in that capacity that HSH has sued UBS in New York state court and is being sued by UBS in England. HSH is domiciled in Germany for the purposes of Council Regulation 44/2001 on jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters (the Brussels I Regulation).

UBS filed its English action for negative declaratory relief against HSH on February 25, 2008, in anticipation of proceedings which HSH was going to lodge against UBS in New York later the same day. In its complaint, HSH alleged mis selling and mismanagement of the securities which were the subject of the complex arrangements between the parties. The original complaint relied on the following causes of action: breach of contract; fraud; negligent misrepresentation; breach of fiduciary duty; breach of an implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing; unjust enrichment; and constructive trust.

“Plainly the parties did not actually contemplate at the time of the conclusion of the contracts that there would be litigation in two countries involving allegations of misrepresentation in the inception and performance of the agreements. But, in my judgment, sensible business people would not have intended that a dispute of this kind would have been within the scope of two inconsistent jurisdiction agreements. The agreements were all connected and part of one package, and it seems to me plain that the result for which UBS contends would be a wholly uncommercial result and one that sensible business people cannot have intended.”

“The New York complaint alleges, inter alia, that (a) UBS induced HSH to purchase the NS4 Notes by misrepresentations concerning the credit quality of the Reference Pool to which payments under the NS4 Notes were linked; (b) UBS failed to operate a Commitments Committee, as required by the RPSA, so as to select Reference Pool assets with stable or improving credit profiles, carefully monitor the credit status and quality of each asset, and avoid downgrades. As Justice Lowe stated in his decision of October 21, 2008: ‘HSH’s overarching claim is that UBS failed to maintain the promised high quality of the notes in the Reference Pool, by failing to ensure that the Commitments Committee keep an eye on the condition of the investments.’” [¶ 89].

“Whether a jurisdiction clause applies to a dispute is a question of construction. Where there are numerous jurisdiction agreements which may overlap, the parties must be presumed to be acting commercially, and not to intend that similar claims should be the subject of inconsistent jurisdiction clauses. The jurisdiction clause in the Dealer’s Confirmation is a ‘boilerplate’ bond issue jurisdiction clause, and is primarily intended to deal with technical banking disputes. Where the parties have entered into a complex transaction, it is the jurisdiction clauses in the agreements which are at the commercial centre of the transaction which the parties must have intended to apply to such claims as are made in the New York complaint and reflected in the draft particulars of claim in England.” [¶ 95].

“The action in England is intended to mirror the New York proceedings. I have already emphasised that the essence of the claims for misrepresentation in New York is that HSH was induced to purchase the NS4 Notes in reliance on the fraudulent and negligent misrepresentations, and would not have purchased them in the absence of those representations. No sensible commercial interpretation of the jurisdiction clause in the Dealer’s Confirmation could have the result that identical misrepresentation claims would fall both within that clause and within the non exclusive New York jurisdiction clauses, simply because the consideration for the transaction was the issue of the Kiel MTN Notes.

The Court concludes that the standard form bond issue jurisdiction clause in the Dealer’s Confirmation does not apply to claims that the transaction as a whole, and in particular the purchase of the NS4 Notes, was induced by misrepresentation.
