Anti-Doping Measure Mirrors McConnell Introduced Bill in the U.S. Senate

We applaud the House Energy and Commerce Committee and House leaders for saddling up and charging ahead with a vote to put American horseracing on the right track.”

— Marty Irby, executive director at Animal Wellness Action

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, September 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Last night leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives announced a scheduled a vote on H.R. 1754, the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act, led by U.S. Reps. Paul Tonko, D-N.Y., and Andy Barr, R-Ky. The House Energy and Commerce Committee passed the bill 46 to 5 earlier in the month. The bill mirrors S. 4547 – legislation introduced by U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Senators Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., Martha McSally, R-Ariz., and Diane Feinstein, D-Calif. and promises to end the era of widespread doping of horses in Thoroughbred racing in America.

The Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act includes a ban on race-day doping, the establishment of a uniform national standard for rules and regulations for U.S. horseracing that would be overseen by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA). The Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act (HISA) is landmark legislation that would directly address the safety and welfare of racehorses, and the integrity of the sport itself, through better anti-doping measures and racetrack safety standards.

 “This anti-doping legislation will modernize horseracing in the U.S., put the welfare of the horses at the center of the enterprise, and hold the industry to a higher standard that mirrors the rest of the world,” said Marty Irby, executive director at Animal Wellness Action who testified before Congress on the issue in January. “We applaud the House Energy and Commerce Committee and House leaders for saddling up and charging ahead with a vote to put American horseracing on the right track.”

The doping of American racehorses has been the subject of Congressional attention over the past five years with hundreds of horses dying on racetracks weekly, and the indictment of 37 trainers and veterinarians in March of 2020.

The bill has the support of Animal Wellness Action (AWA), the Animal Wellness Foundation (AWF), and key players throughout the horse racing industry, including all three Triple Crown racetracks.  Churchill Downs, which runs the Kentucky Derby, is the most recent corporation to get on board. The effort continues to enjoy the support of the Coalition for Horse Racing Integrity (CHRI), which includes The Jockey Club, the Breeders Cup, Keeneland Racecourse, the Thoroughbred Owners & Breeders Association, the Water Hay Oats Alliance, and AWA and AWF. The measure is also supported by all three Triple Crown Races and their parent companies. 

The patchwork of regulations across the U.S.’s 38 racing jurisdictions has undermined the public’s confidence in horseracing, threatened the integrity of competition, and endangered the human and equine athletes. Enactment of the HISA will address these problems head on while helping to enhance the public’s interest in this very important industry. For the safety of the horses and jockeys, and for the sport of horseracing itself, American horseracing needs the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act of 2020.

Key Provisions

In order to create these uniform performance and safety standards for the sport of horseracing, the HISA creates the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority, which is a private, independent, self-regulatory, nonprofit organization. It will not be funded by the federal government – the horseracing industry will pay the funds necessary for the establishment and administration of the Authority. The Authority is tasked with developing and implementing both a horseracing anti-doping and medication control program and a racetrack safety program.

Composition of the Authority

The Authority will be governed by a Board of Directors consisting of nine members. Five of those members will be independent of the industry, and four members will be experts from the following sectors of the industry: owners and breeders, trainers, racetracks, veterinarians, State racing commissions, and jockeys. To assist with the development of these programs, the Board will establish an anti-doping and medication control standing committee and a racetrack safety standing committee, both controlled by independent members outside the industry. All independent members of the Board and standing committees will be subject to strict conflict-of-interest standards.

Anti-Doping Program

The Authority will be required to create a set of uniform anti-doping rules, including lists of prohibited substances and methods, protocols around the administration of permitted substances, and laboratory testing accreditation and protocols. These permitted and prohibited substances and practices will be developed after taking into consideration international anti-doping standards and veterinarian ethical standards, along with consulting racing industry representatives and the public. The new nationwide rules would replace the current patchwork of regulatory systems that govern horseracing’s 38 separate racing jurisdictions. For services related to the enforcement of this program, the Authority shall enter into an agreement with the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, which has a proven track record of conducting anti-doping and medication control activities for all U.S. Olympic athletes and its approach can easily be adapted to horseracing.

Racetrack Safety Program

To protect the health and safety of racehorses and jockeys, the Authority will also create a racetrack safety program, consisting of a uniform set of training and racing safety standards and protocols. Those standards include racetrack design and maintenance, oversight of human and equine injury reporting and prevention, and the procedures for undertaking investigations at racetrack and non-racetrack facilities related to safety violations. The Authority creates an accreditation program to ensure that racetracks comply with these safety procedures, and in order to continue to gather information on racetrack safety, the Authority will establish a nationwide database of racehorse safety, performance, health, and injury information within one year of the establishment of the program.

Emil Malak Pens an Op-ed: Could Continuous Rapid Testing Eliminate the Need for Lockdowns?

Emil Malak presents his Testing Plan that Would Allow all Businesses to Reopen

Voip-Pal.com Inc. (OTCQB:VPLM)

We need to accept the fact that the coronavirus is not going to disappear the way MERS and SARS did. COVID-19 is a completely different animal and it will be with us for years.”

— Emil Malak

LONDON, ENGLAND, September 25, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — CEOCFO Magazine, an independent investment publication that highlights important technologies and companies, today announced it has published an op-ed (https://www.ceocfointerviews.com/emilmalakoped092220.html) by Voip-Pal CEO Emil Malak. Voip-Pal.com Inc., Voip-Pal (OTCQB: VPLM), a Bellevue, Washington based company is an inventor and pioneer of the switching technology now being used by many of the world's largest telecommunication and social networking companies, without which they could not connect Landline phone calls to Internet phone calls. Mr. Malak has other business ventures and is well versed in global politics and culture.

In this most recent article Mr. Malak urges businesses to think “outside the box” and come up with solutions to keep the economy open. Malak wrote, “Businesses can provide their own solutions, by thinking outside the box and leaving cumbersome government bureaucracy behind. Business owners need to take matters into their own hands while abiding by the law. I have proposed a way to accomplish widespread rapid testing by placing converted ambulances as mobile testing centers on every corner. https://ceocfointerviews.com/emilmalakoped090220.html

Since the start of the pandemic, Emil Malak has advocated for widespread rapid testing as the way to keep the economy open and allow people to freely go about their business. Adding to his previous proposal of converting ambulances into mobile testing units, Mr. Malak has a new proposal for rapid result COVID-19 testing booths. Malak suggests, “Rapid results self-testing machine booths can be placed in business establishments and public buildings so people can regularly test themselves for the virus. These booths would be equipped with testing machines that deliver instant results to the person’s mobile phone within 2 to 5 minutes.” He continues, “Additionally, rapid results self-testing machine booths can be placed in business establishments and public buildings so people can regularly test themselves for the virus. These booths would be equipped with testing machines that deliver instant results to the person’s mobile phone within 2 to 5 minutes.”

Mr. Malak also discusses the recent rise in Coronavirus cases throughout Europe, saying, “On September 17th, the World Health Organization (WHO) issued a warning about the recent spike in coronavirus cases across Europe, calling the new surge in cases “alarming.” They labeled it as a "very serious situation" unfolding across the continent. In recent days, Europe has experienced the biggest rise in daily coronavirus cases since the virus began. France, Spain, United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, and Belgium are seeing record numbers of new cases. Even Israel is now imposing a second lockdown after seeing 4000 new cases in a single day last week. French President Macron has also raised the possibilities of forcing another nationwide lockdown. German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said the coronavirus pandemic is likely to worsen in coming months. Enforcing a draconian style lockdown is not as easy to do in western democracy as it is in autocratic China. We need to accept the fact that the coronavirus is not going to disappear the way MERS and SARS did. COVID-19 is a completely different animal and it will be with us for years.”
https://www.wral.com/who-warns-of-very-serious-situation-in-europe-with-alarming-rates-of-virus-transmission/19291033/

Malak also pointed out how lockdowns have failed and have society. “Lockdowns have proven to be mostly futile as evidenced by what is taking place in Europe right now. They are going back to the same numbers they had at the beginning of the pandemic. People’s lives cannot be put on hold any longer, especially knowing the virus will be back. The economy must keep moving.”

TVM Update: Pudendal/Ilioinguinal/Obturator Neuralgia = Immeasurable Injury

Ben Martin

Ben Martin

Pharmaceutical injury attorney, Ben Martin, comments on need for monetary justice against manufacturers of mesh slings/devices that cause neurological injuries.

I don’t mind saying it. I can’t believe these devices were put on the market in the first place, much less that they are still on it.”

— Ben Martin, Esq.

SANTA BARBARA, CA, UNITED STATES, September 25, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Ben Martin, Esq. of Martin Baughman, national pharmaceutical injury attorney comments on the issues as it relates to monitory demands to defense manufacturers for the neurological injured clients that he represents from the vaginal mesh debacle.

“Our criteria for representation is generally the existence of specific neurological pain syndromes caused by transobturator slings, retropubic slings, and the devices used previously for pelvic organ prolapse. We intend to try these cases as the seriously injured and disabled women we represent with chronic pain syndromes knowingly caused by these manufacturers deserve compensation. I don’t mind saying it. I can’t believe these devices were put on the market in the first place, much less that they are still on it. The medical and scientific evidence is clear that transobturator slings cause pudendal and obturator neuralgia.

There is no amount of money that will make our clients whole. They simply want to get better as they deal with miserable pain. We are with them, and try our best to understand what they are going through though we know that we can never truly understand it.”

The Vigna Law Group targets the below transobturator (TOT) slings and mini-slings that cause pudendal and obturator neuralgia:

Ethicon: TVT-O, Abbrevo
Boston Scientific: Obtryx, Solyx
Coloplast: Aris, Altis

The Vigna Law Group targets the below retropubic slings that cause ilioinguinal neuralgia and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome:

Boston Scientific: Advantage Fit
Ethicon: TVT, TVT Exact
Coloplast: Supris

Dr. Vigna is a California and Washington DC lawyer who focuses on catastrophic neurological injuries caused by transvaginal mesh devices including pudendal neuralgia, obturator neuralgia, ilioinguinal neuralgia, and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. He has clients with these diagnoses filed around the country with Martin Baughman, a Dallas Texas firm.

Gallagher partners with Amplify Intelligence to provide an exclusive opportunity to access their cyber-safety service

Amplify Intelligence, leaders in SME cyber security services have partnered with Gallagher, helping to detect threats and manage cyber risk.

'We’re starting to see criminals move away from attacking larger organisations that present more complex defence mechanisms and instead target SMEs…'”

— QBE Cyber and Technology Specialist Ben Richardson

MELBOURNE, VIC, AUSTRALIA, September 25, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Recognising the value of the partnership between Amplify Intelligence and Gallagher to measure cyber risks derived from critical datasets, AustCyber awarded funding to this project as part of their $15 million Projects Fund, a three-year initiative designed to help the Australian cyber security industry grow and take ideas globally.

Amplify Intelligence’s partnership with Gallagher to improve cyber solutions for the insurance industry will enable them to provide a limited number of eligible clients with access to this Australian technology.

Founded in 2017, Amplify Intelligence Ltd has taken the cyber risk world by storm with the introduction of its cyber safety service.
Its amazing brAIn-box device observes and provides:

> Network Security Monitoring
> Vulnerability Scanning
> Global Threat Intelligence
> AI

It also brings security awareness, phishing simulations and recommends security policies to business owners.

Amplify Intelligence bundles it all together. https://www.amplifyintelligence.com

Simplifying the complex world of cyber security and letting businesses focus on their customers.

Globally a cyber attack is launched every 39 seconds, cyber-criminals are continually seeking new ways into your system. Being reliant only on firewalls and antivirus protection is no longer enough. Malware is constantly evolving and can now detect exposed business computers and infect them without a human being involved.

Once infected, it can operate in a manner undetectable to security such as Anti Virus.

Amplify Intelligence provides small to medium-sized businesses a bank-grade cyber security multi-tool. Cyber criminals are the biggest innovators in the cyber security game. Cyber scoring or web scans are useful only for the business’s external security, but fail to protect inside.

They often provide a false sense of security with such a narrow view of your risk exposure. Although the checks can identify some of the risks present in your website, and its configuration of your web domain.

With attacks quickly evolving, these are no longer able to protect you.

It may give you a long, confusing list of changes without any prioritisation to ensure you get the best bang for your time.

The brAIn-box device, however, looks for suspicious variations in network behaviour and raises the flag if it notices something to be worried about. Unlike anti-virus or endpoint security, it cannot be tampered with by cyber criminals.

Amplify Intelligence use AI to analyse your network behaviour combined with threat intelligence and vulnerability information creating a tailored prioritised list easy to follow actionable steps to make you safe.
A strong cyber security system has multiple layers of protection that spread across the entire organisation; it’s computers, devices, networks and programs.

Amplify Intelligence partnered with Gallagher, brings the next level of risk mitigation and cyber insurance cover to their clients.

“We provide bank-grade cyber security service and Gallagher brings cyber insurance into the mix. Until now, there hasn’t been a comprehensive risk management solution for businesses.” Paul Byrne – Founder and CEO of Amplify Intelligence.

By itself, cyber security can't guarantee the protection of your organisation or information from cyber-criminals. Cyber insurance can keep your business on stable financial footing should a significant security event occur. Gallagher provides cyber insurance solutions tailored to your organisation and its unique risk profile. Combining these two strategies means you get the best of both worlds,

Currently, cybercrime will cost the business world over USD $6 trillion annually by 2021, up from USD $3 trillion in 2015. The global Cyber Insurance market size in 2020 was USD 5.3 Billion, showing that businesses are significantly under-insuring this risk.

> Ransomware Was the Top Cyber Insurance Claim in Q1 2020
> Ransomware retakes the lead (from business email compromise) as the top cyber insurance claim the first half of the year
> Analysts observed a 47% increase in the severity of ransomware attacks, on top of a 100% increase from 2019 to Q1 2020
> Ransomware (41%), funds transfer loss (27%), and business email compromise incidents (19%) were the most frequent types of loss

Reduce your risk, maintain a connected and online organisation by contacting either Amplify Intelligence or Gallagher.

District Retaliates: Calls Social Worker & Dispatches Sherriff’s Dept. to Child’s Home.

A California family with three children with severe disabilities who require special services like Speech & Language, Occupational Therapy, Behavioral Intervention Plan and 1:1 aide, and yet another requires hand-over-hand support. None of this is provided by the voice of the teacher on the Chromebook. On July 29, and August 13, 2020. Parent disagreed with Districts offer of FAPE, and refused to sign the IEP’s

One Martinez student was put in imminent danger when an online aide told her to leave the room, instructing her that she and the siblings should go upstairs to find a quieter environment. Another sibling almost fell when he decided to get up and travel with his Chromebook in tow. This family also needed to return to the school three different times to get and exchange Chrome books, none of which had proper programming for virtual learning.

The Parent had no choice, and on August 31, 2020, filed a lawsuit. To help all the other Special Education Students as well, the Student filed a class action lawsuit in United States Federal District Court on August 31, 2020. Martinez v. Newsom, et al., Case No. 5:20-cv-0176. This allows other Students with disabilities like Plaintiffs, to obtain relief and services without the cost of an attorney and court fees. The Martinez family is the primary plaintiff in that matter. Defendants are the Governor, the Superintendent of Education and every School District in California, seeking to address this failure and violation of the IDEA, as well as the fundamental rights of the Martinez students.

The family’s independent psychologist, behavioral expert, and legal representatives clearly communicated to the District that it is impossible for the Students to obtain a minimum basic education in the distance learning environment, which the District is offering on a take it or leave it basis. The independent experts and Parent explained that the children are unable to participate or learn without proper accommodations for their disabilities.

About a week after that lawsuit was filed, District decided to call Students’ social worker indicating the Parent was somehow failing in her duties to have Students attend school, indicating a lack of effort or desire and concern about the children’s education. By law, the social worker must investigate the District’s allegation.

When the social worker communicated with the Parent, she had to inform Parent of the District’s complaint. However, District was unaware that during the previous week, the same social worker had routinely observed Students and was well aware of the excellent care and concern Parent has for Students. Not only does the Parent participate in all aspects of all the children’s lives, this social worker knows the Parent pays this law firm – out of her own pocket – to assist her students in obtaining a FAPE, something she is not required to do.

The District then took the outrageous step of dispatching the San Bernardino Sherriff’s Department to the Martinez home to investigate Students’ conditions at the home, under the pretense Parent was not allowing the children to participate in the school’s virtual learning program.

It’s illegal For School Districts to Retaliate Against Parents. Calling a social worker to harass a parent is clearly retaliation. Calling the Sheriff’s Department to harass a parent is also clearly retaliation. Sending employees to stalk a family is yet another form of clear retaliation. The administrator who authorized dispatching the Sherriff’s Department to the child’s home to retaliate and intimidate Parent should be terminated. Parent advocating for her child’s education is protected by law.

Retaliation is illegal if the District’s actions precedes the retaliation which is protected by law.

July 29, and August 13, 2020. Parent disagrees with District IEP and offers of FAPE, refuses to sign and consent to virtual learning.

August 31, 2020. Parent Lawsuit was filed.

Sept. 9, 2020. Social worker called by District to investigate Parent.

Sept. 13, 2020 District dispatched the San Bernardino Sherriff’s Department to Students’ home. They arrived at the Martinez home after 8 pm Sunday, Sept. 13, 2020 to investigate Parent.

Parents Protected activity in the school environment comes in many forms, including pursuing Parent’s rights under the IDEA and advocating for disabled students regarding issues related to their federal and state educational rights. Lee v. Natomas Unified Sch. Dist., 93 F. Supp. 3d 1160, 1168 (E.D. Cal. 2015). That is what this family has done.

Parents of children with disabilities face retaliation from their children’s schools in response to their advocacy. We believe the District’s Actions are an abuse of power.
We also believe the school District’s retaliation is a harmful act against this Parent and is made in response to the Martinez v. Newsom, et al., Case No. 5:20-cv-0176 lawsuit against the District. Anti-retaliation provisions in the law are tied to constitutional or statutory rights. The purpose of these provisions is to ensure that parents who complain about violations of rights are not deterred for fear of retaliation. The Court seeks to “prevent . . . interference with ‘statutory rights. Burlington v. White, 548 U.S. 53, 68 (2006).

You're Purchasing Land: Do You Need A Real Estate Lawyer? Rachel Marie DeSimone Explains.

Paralegal Rachel Marie DeSimone Explains The Ins And Outs Of Land Purchase

BONITA SPRINGS, FL, USA, September 24, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Gearing up to make a land purchase? It can be tough to understand the ins and outs of real estate law when you're purchasing land. Real estate paralegal Rachel Marie DeSimone is sharing her recommendations for deciding whether you need a lawyer to help you through the process of land purchase. 

If you're doing a straightforward transfer of land, it may be possible to complete the process without a lawyer, according to Rachel Marie DeSimone. However, if you can afford it, using a real estate lawyer is always a good idea when there's a transfer of property. Rachel Marie DeSimone says that using a real estate lawyer can help to ensure that the property transfer is fair to all parties. 

Most people don't anticipate that any legal disputes will arise during a property transfer, but it happens more often than you would think, according to Rachel Marie DeSimone. When it comes time to sign paperwork, many people find themselves unable to complete the deal due to small arguments that could have been easily avoided with the use of a real estate lawyer. 

If you're not sure whether you're going to need the services of a real estate layer, Rachel Marie DeSimone recommends at least shopping around to figure out who you will call if you need to work with someone for legal assistance. Keeping a real estate lawyer on retainer while you're going through the process of working out a real estate deal. According to Rachel Marie DeSimone, having a real estate lawyer on hand as you're going through the process of working out final agreements and signing contracts can save you valuable time. 

Rachel Marie DeSimone also recommends that you check the laws in your state. Some laws require that you have a real estate lawyer present at the closing of your real estate deal. Even if working with a real estate lawyer is not required in your state, Rachel Marie DeSimone recommends working with one if you're an out of town or out of state buyer, if you're buying commercial property, if you're buying property in a disaster-prone area (such as a tornado zone or a flood zone), or if you're buying a property that's bank owned. 

When you have questions about your real estate deal, Rachel Marie DeSimone recommends that you consult a real estate legal professional.
