Pushcart vendors – in LA for decades – might become legal

first_imgLOS ANGELES — They seem to be everywhere on the streets of Los Angeles — pushcarts and tables filled with everything from hot dogs and tamales to toys and tools.You’re a tourist in Hollywood with a phone that’s about to die and no charger? No problem. There should be someone nearby selling them.You’re craving a freshly made pupusa, a Salvadoran delicacy made with a corn tortilla stuffed with salsa, beans, cabbage and other tasty things? Yeah, you can get that, too.Such sales are illegal, although the law is rarely enforced.Now, after a decade of debate and compromise, the Los Angeles City Council will consider an ordinance Wednesday that would grant permits to sidewalk vendors, allowing them to come out of the legal shadows and putting the city on the same footing as New York and Chicago on the issue.An estimated 50,000 vendors peddle their wares along Los Angeles sidewalks and in parks and other public places, hawking souvenir hats, sunglasses, T-shirts, purses and other merchandise, as well as food from countries all over the world.Many are immigrants eking out modest livings who have pushed for years for the change.“Our vendors are very excited that after 10 years of conversation and discussions and work on this that it’s feeling like it’s coming to fruition,” said Isela Gracian, president of the East LA Community Corporation, which has been lobbying the city for such an ordinance.Some details were still being worked out Tuesday, including how many competing vendors could operate a table or pushcart in a park or on a street. And, more importantly, how much a permit would cost.Food vendors would need to get separate permits from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, just like the hundreds of food truck operators in the area.New York and Chicago have been licensing street vendors for years. Permits run about $50 to $100 but can be hard to get because of waiting lists.New York has an estimated 20,000 street vendors, according to The Street Vendor Project, an advocacy group.“Among the large cities, LA is the only one that doesn’t have a program like this,” said Gracian, noting that her group studied the other cities to learn how to avoid conflicts with brick-and-mortar stores and restaurants on streets where vendors sometimes park their pushcarts.One vendor who sets up in front of a corner grocery in the city’s Boyle Heights neighbourhood, sells freshly cooked food but won’t sell drinks, suggesting people buy them from the store.She calls it synergy and a way to support each other.John Rogers, The Associated Presslast_img read more

SP promises Ahir regiment calls for mahaparivartan

first_imgLucknow: The Samajwadi Party released its vision document on Friday, promising constitution of the Ahir (Yadav) regiment and calling for “mahaparivartan” (grand change).Releasing the 16-page document, SP chief Akhilesh Yadav said the future of the country should be better for all sections, including farmers and Muslims. “It is our vision document for party leaders and workers, and will be utilised for answering the BJP,” he said at the party headquarters here. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’The vision document, carrying the photographs of Akhilesh Yadav, his father and SP patron, Mulayam Singh Yadav, read: ‘Samajik nyay se mahaparivartan: Ek nayi disha, ek nayi ummeed’ (grand change through social justice: One new direction, one new hope). It also carried socialist leader Ram Manohar Lohia’s quote: “The fight against poverty is a farce till there is discrimination on basis of caste and sex.” The last page of the multicoloured pictorial vision document carries an appeal: “Vote for ‘mahaparivartan’ (grand change)”. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&KAkhilesh Yadav alleged that the National Democratic Alliance government’s decisions had robbed the youth of employment opportunities. “They talk of giving money, but have snatched it from the people.” “We feel the future of the country should be better for all sections, be it farmers, youth or Muslims. The chasm between the rich and the poor has become very wide,” the former Uttar Pradesh chief minister said. The SP, which has formed an alliance with the Bahujan Samaj Party, accused the Bharatiya Janata Party of using the Army as a political tool. It added that “fake nationalism” of the BJP was a threat to the country and promised to ban the use of Army and soldiers for political gains. “Ahir (Yadav) armoured and Gujarat infantry regiments will be formed and equal status and honour will be given to the security forces, be it the BSF or the CRPF,” the document read. It promised to empower forces fighting Naxalism.last_img read more

TMC to lodge complaint with EC against Modi and Shah says Partha

first_imgKolkata: The TMC will lodge a complaint with the Election Commission against Narendra Modi and Amit Shah for campaigning in favour of the BJP in Bengal after the stipulated time came to an end at 10pm on Thursday, party’s secretary general Partha Chatterjee said on Friday.Modi and Shah while addressing the press conference in Delhi on Friday criticised Mamata Banerjee and alleged that 80 BJP supporters had been killed during the election. Chatterjee said: “The Election Commission has become the extension of BJP office. There is one set of law for the opposition parties and another set of law for Modi and Shah. It is most unfortunate that Election Commission has become biased. It has lost the reputation it had earned during the time of TN Sheshan.” Chatterjee alleged that the Trinamool Congress had written hundreds of letters to the Election Commission which had failed to yield results. But, the Commission takes prompt action on the complaints lodged by the BJP. It may be mentioned the Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee called the “Election Commission and the BJP as two brothers and two sides of the same coin” on Thursday. Following complaints made by the BJP leaders, the Election Commission relieved the state Home Secretary Atri Bhattacharya and former Commissioner of Kolkata Police Rajeev Kumar on Wednesday. Chatterjee said: “Two liars had addressed the press conference in Delhi. During the election campaigns they came to Bengal and told lies just to incite people. Their claim that 80 BJP workers were killed in election clashes is the biggest lie. I fail to understand what do they think of themselves? They do not have any knowledge of Bengal. They try to create an environment as if the law and order situation in Bengal is worst in the country. But by spreading such canard they will not be able to make any dent in Bengal.” Chatterjee said the BJP is trying to win the election by trying to bribe the voters. “Bengal has a different political culture and you cannot win the election by buying votes. The BJP leaders come and go and never try to understand Bengal. Bengal is not Tripura where they had won by spending money.” The allegation of Chatterjee is not without basis. The police arrested BJP leaders and workers carrying money from various parts in the state on Friday.last_img read more

Ohio State womens hockey swept by No 2 Minnesota

The OSU women’s hockey team faces off against conference opponent and No. 2-ranked Minnesota on Nov. 15 at the OSU Ice Rink. OSU lost, 5-3. Credit: Ed Momot / For The LanternThe Ohio State women’s hockey team improved after a 4-2 loss to Minnesota, but still found itself on the losing end of a weekend sweep.The Buckeyes fell by a score of 5-3 to the Golden Gophers in Saturday afternoon’s game, completing Minnesota’s road sweep. Although the game didn’t go the way OSU hoped, senior forward Taylor Kuehl said she was happy with the team’s fight in Saturday’s matchup.“I think we came out with a lot more energy today, I think we knew we had to,” Kuehl said. “We didn’t want to play to them, we wanted to play our own game, which I think we did a lot better job of today and I don’t think the score shows exactly how the game went.”Kuehl was a major asset to the Buckeyes this weekend, scoring a total of three goals in the series.OSU (7-6-0, 5-5-0) tied the game twice and didn’t back down from the No. 2 Golden Gophers.In the first period of play, Minnesota took the lead with a power-play goal almost nine minutes into the period. Gopher senior forward Meghan Lorence scored the first goal to put Minnesota on the board. She later scored two more goals to complete her first career hat trick.OSU struck back early in the second with a goal from senior defenseman Sara Schmitt, her third goal of the season. Minnesota pushed ahead less than two minutes later. Another goal from Lorence allowed the Gophers to take a 2-1 lead.The Buckeyes again tied the game when Kuehl scored a power-play goal at 12:33. But with only 14.9 seconds left in the period, Minnesota scored once again to send the Buckeyes to the locker room down 3-2.Kuehl said that goal was the turning point of the game.“We had just tied it up. We had momentum. I think that could’ve completely changed the game going into the third period with a tied game, anything could happen,” she said. “It’s anyone’s game at that point. Last two minutes coach is always saying ‘don’t give anything up’ and we fell short and it completely changed the outcome of the game.”Minnesota came back out for the third and pulled ahead to a 5-2 lead. Sophomore forward Claudia Kepler closed the gap with a goal with a little over five minutes remaining, but that capped the scoring in OSU’s loss.Senior forward Kayla Sullivan said a few mistakes were what kept the Buckeyes from walking away with a win.“We needed to get in front of them and do better blocking shots and forcing them to turn the puck over,” Sullivan said.Buckeye freshman goaltender Kassidy Sauve, was credited with 30 saves, while Gopher junior goalie Amanda Leveille had 18 saves.Minnesota coach Brad Frost also said his team’s goal late in the second was the game’s key moment.“Going into the third period being up one because of that late goal in the second was great,” he said. “And then to continue to extend the lead created a lot of momentum for us into the third and we were able to come away with the win.”Even though Buckeye coach Nate Handrahan wasn’t thrilled with the outcome, he said he was happier with OSU’s Saturday performance than the night before.“We played a different game today than (Friday), we really attacked the net today,” he said.On Friday, the Golden Gophers tried to get on the board with an early scoring opportunity that was later called off by the referees. But that didn’t deter them as they finally took the lead with just 27 second left in the first period.In a physical and high-scoring second period, the Gophers pushed ahead to a 3-0 lead. The Buckeyes quickly answered, scoring back-to-back goals. Kuehl scored both goals for OSU only 14 seconds apart from one another.A goal from Minnesota at the 11:44 mark of the second period sealed the win for the Gophers, 4-2.“We’ve sometimes played timid against them, but we can keep up. The game was closer than it looked,” Kuehl said. “We played the No. 2 team and it wasn’t anything we couldn’t handle. I think we can use this going into next weekend and help fuel the fire.”OSU is scheduled to travel to Grand Forks, N.D., for a weekend series against North Dakota. The two teams are set to meet at the center ice at 8:07 p.m. Friday and 5:07 p.m. Saturday. read more

Gold Gets 1 boost on Greek Crisis Fears Stocks Slump

first_imgGold jumped 1 percent on Monday as investors sought safety in the metal after the Greece debt crisis took a turn for the worse over the weekend, with Athens looking more likely to default and exit the euro zone.FUNDAMENTALSSpot gold was up nearly $11 to $1,185.20 an ounce by 0030 GMT, after reaching $1,186.91 earlier in the session, its highest in nearly a week.U.S. gold futures also jumped 1 percent to a session high of $1,187.60.Bailout talks between the Greek leftwing government and foreign lenders broke down over the weekend and the European Central Bank froze vital funding support to Greece’s banks, leaving Athens with little choice but to shut down the system to keep the banks from collapsing.The failure to reach a deal with creditors leaves Greece set to default on 1.6 billion euros of loans from the International Monetary Fund that fall due on Tuesday. Athens must repay billions of euros to the ECB in the coming months.The impending default on the IMF loans leaves Greece sliding towards a euro exit and also carries broad implications for the global financial system. Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras late on Friday surprised creditors by calling a snap referendum on what he said were the unacceptable terms offered to keep the country from bankruptcy.U.S. stock futures and the euro fell almost 2 percent in early Asian trade on Monday. Asian shares look set to open lower, despite the Chinese central bank’s monetary easing on Saturday. [MKTS/GLOB]The slump in global equities sent investors rushing towards safe-haven assets such as gold and the Japanese yen.Silver climbed about 1 percent along with gold, while platinum and palladium also edged up.Elsewhere, U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission data on Friday showed speculators upped a bullish bet in COMEX gold futures and options and switched to a net short position in silver in the week ended June 23.SPDR Gold Trust, the world’s largest gold-backed exchange-traded fund, said its holdings fell 0.25 percent to 711.44 tonnes on Friday.last_img read more
