Skolnik: ‘Marshall Plan’ Is Needed To Get States, Counties, Municipalities Financing Needed To Fight COVID-19 Outbreak

first_imgBy RICHARD SKOLNIKLos AlamosDear Senators and Members of Congress:I write urgently to you, as a New Mexican who has spent 45 years working on global health and is the author of the leading textbook on that subject. I take account in my comments below of discussions with some of the leading economists and medical scientists who work on global health.An economic stimulus plan may be warranted. However, no amount of economic stimulus can calm the economy in a crisis that is engendered by a disease outbreak. An economic stimulus may be necessary, but it will never be sufficient.What is needed at least as urgently as an economic stimulus is a “Marshall Plan” that can get to the states, counties, and municipalities the financing they need to fight the outbreak. Only when people feel that the outbreak is over will they return to normal economic life.In addition, the US federal government must ramp up its support for the states in the most urgent way possible. As you know, we are short of swabs, tests, test readers, masks, PPEs, and ventilators. CDC has now advised frontline providers that they should use bandannas if they can’t get N95 masks. These are what we might expect in the failed low-income states on which I worked, but they are now occurring in the US. These put the health of our frontline health workers and their patients at grave risk. Every global health professional has known for years that diseases emerge and re-emerge and there is no excuse for not being ready for this.In life, a week does not mean much. In a disease outbreak, every day of delay is an eternity that costs more lives.New Mexico is leading the nation in many ways in the fight against COVID-19. I hope you will use every ounce of your energy to help Congress focus on not just a “financial stimulus” but also the urgent measures and financing needed to prevent many more deaths than should ever occur.With profound thanks.Editor’s note: Richard Skolnik is the former regional director for health for South Asia at the World Bank. He was the director of an AIDS treatment program for Harvard and taught Global Health at the George Washington University and Yale. He is the author of Global Health 101 and the instructor for Yale/Coursera’s Essentials of Global Health.last_img read more

Leadenhall record raises the question – is this the top?

first_imgIf the London office market hadn’t hit the top in July, it was surely very close to hitting it. Just over three months later, the question is: has that high-water mark now been reached? As we report on page 4, British Land and Oxford Properties have just signed up US insurance company FM Global to take space at the Cheesegrater for not far off £85/sq ft – above the circa £80/sq ft paid by Arma Partners at Irvine Sellar’s Shard earlier this year and way higher than the pre-recession City peak of £69.50/sq ft.Now, this is clearly not your run-of-the-mill office block. It is a skyscraper so iconic it has its own nickname, so it will not necessarily dictate the next tranche of prime City lettings – and, indeed agents are currently quoting prime City rents of £61.50/sq ft.But anomalous though such a deal is, don’t expect it not to exert any upward influence on rents – it could well set the tone for activity at other statement schemes such as 100 Bishopsgate and the Pinnacle, at the very least.And that is just in the City. What of Midtown and the West End? In real terms, rents hadn’t risen since the late 80s/early 90s. We are now hearing of £130/sq ft-plus deals. Are they too reaching a ceiling?Lots of companies like Great Portland Estates are now noting (somewhat euphemistically?) that “value in London offices is harder to find these days”. Meanwhile, the Qataris have just spent a whopping £1.1bn on HSBC Tower. No wonder interest in the fringe has grown so sharply, with some investors now even beginning to call what used to be referred to as fringe City prime. With other areas, it may only be a matter of time.Take London Bridge and Southwark. Companies are relocating from pricier environs and a growing number of big names are moving in, such as Omnicom, which has taken a 370,000 sq ft chunk at Bankside. Forget TMT, these are what Americans call the TAMIs (Technology, Advertising, Media and Information companies) and they are descending on the area en masse.The attractions are many. The area has space to breathe, it is all new and boasts schemes such as More London, which are closer to the Bank of England than some offices within the Square Mile’s borders.Developers are also looking beyond central London, to the east in particular. Derwent London, for example, more or less created the buzz around Tech City in and around Shoreditch and Silicon Roundabout at Old Street. Now companies like them are sparking similar excitement around Whitechapel, where secondary offices are getting flashier by the minute.Why? Because it is within spitting distance of the City, cheap as chips by comparison and can be easily walked to by Liverpool Street commuters. Plus, as a result of the Square Mile hitting or nearing its peak, values are rising, while still allowing a good ROI in the right properties. What’s not to like?So, yes, Leslau may have bottled out of calling the top of the market, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t the top… and if it wasn’t then, it looks as though it could be getting close now.last_img read more

Cuadrilla Proposes Locations for Two New Exploration Sites in Fylde

first_imgCuadrilla Resources has announced the proposed locations for two new exploration sites in the Fylde as part of its work to understand the full potential of Lancashire’s shale gas resources. The company intends to apply for planning permission to drill, hydraulically fracture and test the flow of gas from up to four exploration wells on each of the sites, one at Roseacre Wood and the other at Preston New Road. Separate applications will also be made to install two seismic arrays that would be used to monitor the hydraulic fracturing process. The independent planning and environmental consultancy Arup will prepare an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for each of the new exploration sites.The Cuadrilla team has started to speak to residents and community representatives living near to the two new sites, which are located close to Roseacre and Little Plumpton, and the company has committed to an extensive programme of public consultation to support the development of its proposals.Francis Egan, Cuadrilla’s chief executive, said:  “We’ve been working hard to assess our site options and have undertaken extensive technical and geological analysis.  As a result of this work, we have decided to focus on just two sites at this time. This will allow us to reduce the potential impact on the local area during exploration while still gathering the important information we need to determine how much gas could be recovered. We’re committed to being a good neighbour and to talking with the community at every stage of the process.”A scoping report outlining Cuadrilla’s proposed approach to environmental assessments for the new sites will shortly be submitted to Lancashire County Council.As part of Cuadrilla’s review of sites, the company has decided not to apply for permission to carry out hydraulic fracturing at its Grange Hill site at this time. The existing well will now be used as the base for a seismic monitor to complement the seismic arrays that would be installed around the proposed new sites. This complies with the recommendations made by the Royal Society and The Royal Academy of Engineering for the monitoring of background seismicity.Press Release, February 5, 2014last_img read more
