Vancouver and Clark County police officers were busy Sunday, investigating two incidents involving domestic violence.One incident was in the Rose Village neighborhood Sunday afternoon and the other in Orchards in the evening. Police dog teams responded both times.The first incident occurred about 4:20 p.m. at 32nd and X streets. At least five officers and a police dog entered the white house at the northwest corner of 32nd and X. They found no one at home.They were looking for a 32-year-old man with a felony domestic violence warrant, said Officer Ilia Botvinnik. He said the man is known to own weapons and police were concerned the man might have a gun. Officers used a bull horn to ask the man to come out. At about 4:40 p.m., they announced they would be coming into the house and the police dog would bite the man if he found him.After about 20 minutes in the house, the officers emerged, checked the garage and left. They had blocked off area streets.A neighbor, who asked that his name not be used, said the area generally is quiet. “No trouble at all, really,” he said. “Kinda weird.”The suspect’s name was not available Sunday night.Major responseThe second incident happened near 49th Street and 112th Avenue in the Kevanna Park neighborhood.Information was sketchy but police were called because of an assault, with a possibly armed man in his 30s, Botvinnik said.At least 10 officers were on the scene. At The Columbian’s press time, officers were searching in a wooded area near Kevanna Park, which is not far from the Washington State Patrol headquarters. No arrest has been made.Neighbor Jason Kolstad, 39, lives about a block from the Evergreen Park Apartments, where police were looking for the man.“They had a good quarter mile in all directions cordoned off,” Kolstad said. “They had a cop at every intersection. It was pretty crazy.”
ST. HELENS, Ore. — A Washington state man accused of killing the Rainier, Ore., police chief in 2011 is mentally impaired and can’t assist with his defense, a judge ruled Wednesday.Circuit Judge Ted Grove ordered that Daniel Butts, 23, of Kalama, Wash., be sent to the Oregon state mental hospital to be treated and forcibly medicated until he is fit to return to Columbia County for trial, The Daily News of Longview reported.Butts is charged with aggravated murder in the fatal shooting of Chief Ralph Painter on Jan. 5, 2011, after Painter responded to a report of a suspicious person at a car stereo shop.Defense lawyers said in hearings last week that Butts is psychotic and won’t meet with them or help make decisions. Prosecutors argue Butts is faking illness.Grove cited the defendant’s childlike behavior and focus on such trivial matters as whether he can smoke or have a cheeseburger. The judge also noted Butts’ “bizarre or grotesque” grimaces and movements during the three days of mental competency hearings.
PORTLAND — A strong second-half team through the first half of their season, the Portland Timbers didn’t wait for their halftime break to put it to the Colorado Rapids.Frederic Piquionne and Will Johnson scored first-half goals on Sunday, and the Timbers reached the halfway point of their Major League Soccer schedule with a 3-0 win at Jeld-Wen Field that has them sharing first place in the Western Conference.Ryan Johnson added a late goal and Rodney Wallace had three assists in his return from the Costa Rica national team, thrilling the crowd of 20,674.Portland’s MLS unbeaten string has reached 15 games, and the Timbers record of seven wins, nine ties and one loss has them tied with Real Salt Lake at 30 points atop the conference standings. It was the sixth consecutive home shutout in league play for the Timbers.“What’s scary about this team is we’re just scratching the surface of the team we can be,” Timbers coach Caleb Porter said. “A lot of things today, even though it was 3-0, we can be better (at).” Portland Timbers Frederic Piquionne is congratulated by teammates after scoring the game’s first goal.
OK, are you ready for it? Rain? No, a taste of summer with highs 80 to 85 degrees Wednesday and Thursday. First we’ll have a few showers today and the transitional day Monday, with slowly clearing skies.Yep, we could see some record highs around the great Northwest as we are blessed with abundant sunshine. We usually get a tinge of 80 degrees before the end of the month, so it will not be highly unusual. Seattle averages the first 80-degree day around May 23. In 2010 the Emerald City didn’t see 80 degrees until July 7 (the official start of guaranteed summer weather).Our first 80-degree day in 2013 was May 2, so we won’t be far off if we hit 80 degrees Wednesday. The warm spell this week will extract remaining pollen on the trees, including the prolific pines, so keep on the antihistamines.With the moisture of late and the burst in outdoor heat, the May flowers we’ve been waiting for should put on a brilliant display as May rolls in Thursday. Shorts, T-shirts, sandals and sunglasses are on the weather charts, so get ready.I wish I could say it will last for a week or so, but extended forecast models are trying to bring another cool trough of low pressure in next weekend. I’ll see what I can do about that.
The New York clinic where Joan Rivers stopped breathing committed a number of errors, including failing to get her consent for all the procedures performed, according to a federal report released Monday.The report, which did not refer to her by name, found that Yorkville Endoscopy inconsistently documented the amount of the sedative propofol Rivers received before the Aug. 28 procedures, that an ENT doctor without privileges to operate at the clinic performed procedures on Rivers, and that a clinic staffer took a cellphone picture of the comic while she was sedated.The “Fashion Police” star was rushed from Yorkville Endoscopy to Manhattan’s Mount Sinai Hospital after she stopped breathing. While the report said she was resuscitated at the clinic, she did not regain consciousness after arriving at the hospital, and daughter Melissa Rivers had her taken off life support Sept. 4.The Yorkville Endoscopy medical team failed to notice Rivers’ blood-oxygen level dropping below normal in the 15 minutes or so before resuscitation attempts began, the report said.Problems surrounded the clinic’s use of the sedative. According to the report, there was no evidence the clinic weighed Rivers before sedating her, a key step to determining how much sedative a patient should receive. And it’s unclear how much propofol Rivers got. A clinic record showed she received 300 milligrams of the drug, but an anesthesiologist told investigators that the amount had been incorrectly entered and that Rivers really got only 120 milligrams.
Banking and financial organisation HSBC Bank has reported a 59% mean gender pay gap for fixed hourly pay across 23,507 employees for 2017.The organisation has reported its gender pay gap data across seven legal entities in line with the government’s gender pay gap reporting regulations and ahead of the private sector submission deadline of 4 April 2018. The UK entities the organisation has reported on are HSBC Bank, HSBC Group Management Services, HSBC Global Services UK, HSBC Global Asset Management UK, HSBC Private Bank UK, Marks and Spencer Financial Services and HSBC Asia Holdings. HSBC Bank is the largest employing entity in the UK.The gender pay gap reporting regulations require organisations with 250 or more employees to publish the difference between both the mean and median hourly rate of pay for male and female full-time employees; the difference between both the mean bonus pay and median bonus pay for male and female employees; the proportions of male and female employees who were awarded bonus pay; and the proportions of male and female full-time employees in the lower, lower middle, upper middle and upper quartile pay bands.HSBC Bank’s median gender pay gap for fixed hourly pay for 2017 is 29%.Its mean gender pay gap for bonuses paid in 2017 is 86%, and the median gender pay gap for bonus payments is 61%. Over this period, 85% of female employees received a bonus payment compared to 84% of male employees.More than a third (34%) of employees in the highest pay quartile at HSBC Bank are female, compared to 64% in the second quartile, 73% in the third quartile and 71% in the lowest pay quartile. In total, HSBC’s UK workforce comprises of 54% female employees and 46% male employees.In addition, HSBC has projected its gender pay gap data for 2018 using snapshot data as at 1 February 2018.For 2018, HSBC Bank has a projected mean gender pay gap of 60% as at 1 February 2018, and a median gender pay gap of 29%. Its projected mean gender pay gap for bonus payments to date is 84%, and the median is 57%. This relates to 87% of female employees and 88% of male employees who have received a bonus this year.HSBC has attributed its gender pay gap firstly to the fact that there are fewer women in senior leadership positions attaining the associated higher levels of pay. Currently, 23% of the organisation’s UK senior leaders are women and at a group level, 29.4% of the members on HSBC’s board are women. The organisation’s analysis also shows that the number of women occupying global senior leadership roles has increased over the past five years and is 26.8% at the end of 2017.Secondly, HSBC’s analysis shows a further gender imbalance in junior roles, which tends to attract lower pay. More than two-thirds (67%) of the organisation’s junior roles in the UK are fulfilled by women. Lastly, HSBC believes its gender pay data is also influenced by the fact that there is a higher proportion of female employees working part-time hours and earning bonuses on a pro rata basis.In addition, HSBC states that the UK being the group’s head office has also impacted its gender pay data because the majority of the organisation’s senior global roles are therefore based in the UK. The diversity of HSBC’s banking portfolio, for example to include investment and retail banking, is also reported as affecting the organisation’s final data.To address its gender pay gap, HSBC has joined the 30% Club to aim to have 30% of its senior leadership roles filled by women by 2020. It is also including inclusive leadership objectives for UK people managers, requesting gender diverse shortlists for all external senior leadership positions and implementing an inclusive hiring essentials course for all hiring managers. This will be available in 2018.The organisation will also continue to have a gender-balanced graduate intake, ensure a balanced representation in talent development programmes, create partnerships with external organisations and expand opportunities for women in the global banking and markets division to access sponsorship and mentoring support. This will include programmes targeted at director level.In addition, parental leave coaching is available for all parents and their managers in the UK, shared parental leave and sabbatical policies are promoted across the business and a new flex employee network has been launched. HSBC is also looking at ways to enhance its flexible working proposition. The organisation’s gender pay gap will also be tackled through its Balance network and by creating pay transparency and consistency, in particular for junior employees.Elaine Arden, group head of human resources at HSBC, said: “We believe that a sustainable and successful business relies on a diverse and inclusive workforce that reflects the customers it serves and the communities in which it operates. Gender balance is crucial to this.“Our pay strategy is designed to attract and motivate the very best people, regardless of gender, ethnicity, age, disability or any other factor unrelated to performance or experience.“Improving the gender balance across businesses and levels of seniority is a priority and something to which the group management board is committed. We are making progress. Improving our gender balance will take time and require sustained focus over the long-term.”
Marketing and communications agency Proctor and Stevenson has launched a new flexible working policy for its 70 Bristol-based employees, to create cultural change and improve staff retention and productivity.The flexible working initiative, developed in conjunction with consultancy and recruitment firm Flexology, was implemented on Monday 11 March 2019.Aiming to give staff greater autonomy in order to better manage their time and workloads, the organisation’s commitment to a flexible working culture empowers employees to select their own working hours. This could include, for example, coming into work earlier or later to improve commutes, taking an extended lunch break, or working from home more often.Previously, the organisation operated a rigid 9.00am to 5.30pm working structure, with little opportunity for flexibility and home working only available in limited circumstances.Caroline Beardkins, HR manager at Proctor and Stevenson, said: “This new culture of flexible working will provide an opportunity for our staff to demonstrate that they can deliver what our clients need while working to less traditional working patterns.“We are keen to place Proctor [and Stevenson] at the forefront of our industry in order to secure talent to grow our team. Flexible working will help with attraction of new staff, as well as retention of our current personnel by improving fairness, reducing travel time, providing a better work-life balance and by improving trust and loyalty.”Proctor and Stevenson has also introduced new measurements to track the initiative’s effectiveness on a monthly basis, such as looking at financial improvements based around the attraction and retention of staff. Monitoring the new culture will also enable the organisation to implement improvements, if required.The move to a flexible working culture was communicated to employees via a staff meeting led by managing director Roger Proctor. Proctor discussed the culture changes and ran a question and answer session. This was followed up with an all-employee email, featuring links to a frequently asked questions page and updated staff policy information.Beardkins added: “It’s going to take some getting used to and our employees will need some time to get into the habit of updating their calendars when they are not working regular hours.“It is crucial that our managers are supportive and encouraging. Leading by example in this area will help ease the changes and embed a genuine, [organisation-wide] culture which benefits everyone.”

(WSVN) – A Broward County tax clerk has been arrested after he allegedly stole at least $100,000 via proceeds from property auctions and possibly putting the county on the hook for more than $1 million.The Broward Sheriff’s Office said Roberto Martinez of Pompano Beach Thursday.Deputies said he worked for the county for at least 10 years to ensure creditors received money owed from the sale of homes delinquent on taxes.Detectives said Martinez would funnel some of the money from those companies to his own pockets.Some of the rightful creditors want the money owed to them.“If the county has to pay it back, it affects all of us, all property owners, because the county is supposed to be the watchdog for our tax money,” said BSO Detective John Calabra.Martinez is facing several charges including organized fraud, grand theft and money laundering.
PARMA, Ohio (WSVN) — A man in Ohio received a citation after he said he rescued two dogs that were locked in a hot car.Richard Hill said on Facebook that he was walking into Walmart when he noticed two dogs locked in a car.

The Associated Press reports that officers arrived two minutes after Hill broke the window.However, even though Hill freed the dogs, he still received a citation for criminal damaging. Hill wrote in part, “The [officer] said I needed to wait for him so I am being charged with criminal damage.”Police Sgt. Dan Ciryak believed Hill had good intentions but “he should have waited a little more.”Hill plans on fighting the charge. Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (WSVN) — The former City Hall building in Jacksonville came crumbling down within seconds, but not without complications.After being there for almost 60 years, the 15-story building was destroyed on Sunday.However, the building’s implosion caused window damage to other buildings in the surrounding area, as well as car alarms to go off.Jud Miller, a nearby business owner, was inside his business when the building crumbled down.“The windows were flexing,” Miller said. “I was like ‘Oh, God, this is not a good idea. Maybe I shouldn’t be in here.’”The force of the blast was so strong it dislodged a news camera inside the building next door.Nearly a dozen windows were shattered at the neighboring Blackstone Building. Windows in condos above were also busted out. “We went upstairs and just checked it out,” Miller said. “Not much of anything – two windows this close. Those guys did a good job.”A city spokesperson said the implosion went according to plan, and that any damage would be addressed and promptly repaired by the contractor.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

RELATED POST: Yes, We’re at a Tipping Point—Now What? CHICAGO—About 250 b-to-b magazine and media executives are gathering here this week for American Business Media’s 2008 Top Management Meeting. The focus of this year’s conference is four-fold, with topics including managing the future, organizational structure, technological needs and content optimization.On Monday, key findings from the ABM Financial Trend Report 2005-2007 were presented during the conference’s second session.The report, which cited revenue from all branded sources as relatively flat, showed print as 84 percent of average b-to-b publications’ income in 2007. The average publication generated $5.47 million in total revenue, a slight decline of 0.4 percent versus 2006 and about the same as 2005. While revenue has declined, print expenses have also declined, the report said. During a panel, Incisive Media CEO Bill Pollak said he has seen advertisers pull back from fourth quarter advertising. “Publishers are now seeing contracts that they thought they had for 2009 disappear as of September and October,” he said. “The last eight weeks have been a totally different experience than the first eight months of this year.” When asked if his outlook is as “rosy,” Jordan, Edmiston Group managing director Richard Mead said that while he has faith in print, he “doesn’t know whether the industry is as far forward as it should be right now.”Repurposing EditorialIn the first session of the day, for small publishers and entrepreneurial committees, Robin Ashton, co-publisher of Food Service Equipment Reports, moderator of a session called “Blended Content Strategies,” led a discussion about repurposing and presenting editorial content in unique ways. Wyatt Kash, editor-in-chief of Government Computer News, told the group how they’ve learned “it isn’t just about repurposing content; it’s about content development strategy.” When asked how they determine what goes on the Web and what remains in print, vice president and editorial director of Marketing & Technology Group William McDowell said “you have to let the content dictate the appropriate medium.”
