Attorney General Bonta Issues Consumer Alert on Price Gouging Following State of Emergency Declarations in Plumas, Butte, Lassen, and Alpine Counties Due to Wildfires

OAKLAND – California Attorney General Rob Bonta today issued a consumer alert following the Governor’s declaration of a state of emergency for Plumas County due to both the Dixie Fire and Fly Fire, Butte and Lassen counties due to the Dixie Fire, and Alpine County due to the Tamarack Fire. The fires collectively have destroyed homes, caused the evacuation of residents and damaged critical infrastructure. Attorney General Bonta reminds all Californians that price gouging during a state of emergency is illegal under Penal Code Section 396.

“In just a week’s time, our state has been hit with a second wave of devastating wildfires. During this difficult time, California’s price gouging laws are in effect to protect families from being overcharged for essential supplies,” said Attorney General Bonta. “I encourage anyone who has been the victim of price gouging, or who has information regarding potential price gouging, to immediately file a complaint with our office online at oag.ca.gov/report, or to contact their local police department or sheriff’s office.”

California law generally prohibits charging a price that exceeds, by more than 10 percent, the price of an item before a state or local declaration of emergency. This law applies to those who sell food, emergency supplies, medical supplies, building materials, and gasoline. The law also applies to repair or reconstruction services, emergency cleanup services, transportation, freight and storage services, hotel accommodations, and rental housing. Exceptions to this prohibition exist if, for example, the price of labor, goods, or materials has increased for the business.

Violators of the price gouging statute are subject to criminal prosecution that can result in a one-year imprisonment in county jail and/or a fine of up to $10,000. Violators are also subject to civil enforcement actions including civil penalties of up to $2,500 per violation, injunctive relief, and mandatory restitution. The Attorney General and local district attorneys can enforce the statute.

Gemstone Finance Brings Precious Stones into The Crypto Space

Recently, the project rolled out two pre-sales offering their sGEG crypto tokens. The response to these presale offerings was overwhelming, so much so that their Phase 1 tokens worth $228,000 were sold in a record 3 minutes 7 seconds from the launch.

Los Angeles, CA, July 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — GeFi is a blockchain platform that decentralizes mining of precious stones by providing their native crypto tokens – GEG and GES that are  pegged with the value of gemstones. It is built on Binance Smart Chain (BSC), the native blockchain of the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange – Binance

Apart from access to precious stones, GeFi also features a unique NFT marketplace, a platform for users to trade, swap, stake, and participate in lucrative yield farming. For this, GeFi has put together some of the leading decentralized finance (DeFi) protocols from across the globe. Also, GeFi’s protocol supports pooling with reduced impermanent loss.

GeFi tokens are trending In the crypto space and the project has two native crypto tokens GeGem (GEG) and GeStone (GES)

In the Phase 1 of their Initial Stake Pool Offering (ISO or ISPO), GeFi released a total of 57,000 sGEG tokens for $4 per sGEG token. And, guess what- all 57,000 sGEG tokens were sold within 3.7 seconds of their launch. Yes, it took only 3 minutes 7 seconds to raise $228,000.

For those who don’t know, ISO refers to financing a development project by creating a stake pool. In this model, developers collect all the rewards of block validation and provide native tokens of the project to delegators in exchange.

After the successful Phase 1 presale, GeFi announced their Phase 2 ISO public sale from 12 July 2021 UTC 1200 to 22 July, 2021, UTC 1200. In phase 2, GeFi released 85,500 sGEG tokens for $5 each.

This time too early GeFi adopters rushed to buy the Phase 2 presale and bought all the tokens in 7 days. In this Phase 2 presale, GeFi raised $427,500 in a record 7 days.

While a considerable number of people have bought the sGeG tokens in the previous token presales, some people have missed out on their chances. If you are one of them, don’t worry. While a considerable number of people have bought the sGeG tokens in the previous token presales, some people have missed out on their chances. If you are one of them, don’t worry. Phase 3 pre-sale is ongoing now (at time of writing). Phase 3 has an availability of 142,500 sGEG tokens for $6 USD each.

GeFi is taking yield farming to the next level. Their GeFi Vault optimizes yields for every participant using their auto-compounding smart yield mechanism. To achieve this, GeFi uses their dynamic harvesting optimizer to unlock highest APYs for their vaults.

Moreover, you don’t need to manually adjust your deposits, GeFi does it for you. Their protocol automatically switches your funds between several protocols to get the best returns. GeFi’s auto-compounding smart contracts are battle-tested and they use best-in-class yield optimization strategies.

GeGem token holders will get monetary incentives (for most active users) and privilege access to items on GeHub and GeGame.

GeStone Token (GES) to be launched soon and the token holders can buy, sell, and discover exclusive digital assets and physical products from the largest digital Gems and Jewelry marketplace for NFTs and crypto collectibles and get access to blockchain-powered games and also: 

  1. Collectible NFT card game – Collect precious NFTs 
  2. Farming game – Farm your avatar to get NFTs
  3. Battle game – Fight and conquer opponents’ NFTs at stake. Here you can buy virtual lands, mine exciting items, and make new friends. 

GeFi is indeed a promising project. It has crypto tokens pegged with precious stones, NFT marketplace, yield-farming vaults, and blockchain-powered games. Nonetheless, this project is very young. The project will only be valuable if it keeps all its promises.

Under an innovative business model that redefines direct-to-consumer e-commerce, Hevias has created business partnerships with every touch point of their supply chain, allowing the company to guarantee the highest standards of quality for the best possible value at every step of the process. 

Having an exclusively owned supply chain paired with tenured industry experience resulted in a quick and impressive seed round for the young company. With their e-commerce site going live this month, Hevias has sparked interest as they prepare for their first significant venture series this fall. 

The company CEO acknowledged the crucial role their supply chain plays in their business model and how he sought out to prove industry norms wrong.

“Our factory partners are the second most important equation in our business model (behind our customers), allowing us the flexibility to bring footwear and accessories to market at unrivaled speed, quality and value while still being made by hand with a deep respect for tradition.” 

McCartan, a retail executive with a breadth of experience scaling startups and fortune 500 retailers explains how closing the gap between supplier and retailer is niche he plans to tackle and evolve throughout the industry.

“If we give our manufacturing partners skin in the game, incentivizing them to have speed to market, better quality controls and equitable financial terms, then the customer wins every time.”

With a mission on building an unrivaled quality into the men’s boot and loafer categories, McCartan traveled to León, Mexico, a centuries-old source for some of the world’s finest leathers and home to family-owned artisanal shoemakers that have handed down their craft for generations. To some, it was a dying art, but to him, it was a chance to bring exceptional quality to the masses and create lasting opportunities for these gifted artisans.

The CEO McCartan said their commitment is towards the customer.

“Every creative choice is made with the customer in mind. We sweat every detail, with nothing overlooked. We pride ourselves in doing what is right, not what is easy and we won’t compromise on that. Our customers are the cornerstone of our business, and we want them to look and feel their best.”

Hevias was founded by a small team of footwear innovators with generations of industry experience. Hevias focuses on cutting margins – instead of corners – to deliver a footwear experience that’s truly authentic. The rich supply chain built through great partnerships guarantee the highest standards of quality at every step of the process from the designing of the materials to the factory where all products are handmade with a deep respect for tradition.

Proposed Klamath River Dams Removal – Public and Legislators Have Been Misinformed – Critical Information Sequestered

Economics Not Salmon Is the Reason PacifiCorp is Removing the Dams”

— Glen Spain – Klamath River Renewal Corporation board member

YREKA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, July 24, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Modern-day Copco Lake (SEE IMAGE) was called 'Clammittee Lake' in the early 1900's when the Klamath River was held back in a lake by a natural 31-foot-tall lava dam that blocked any up-river fish migration. This 31-foot-tall natural dam was the smallest of several such naturally-formed volcanic dams that blocked salmon migration for millennia, and right up until the time that Copco 1 dam was built.

It's interesting that the Klamath River Renewal Corporation (KRRC) had from the start, avoided any discussions about the natural high-dams blocking fish migration, and failed to disclose to the public and FERC, J.C. Boyle's drawings of this natural 31-foot tall dam that clearly blocked fish migration.

That was until July 13th 2021 when KRRC started feebly trying to respond to being outed, by posting more twisted Logic on its Facebook page, seemingly beginning to cover for not making a full disclosure of this (one of many) important and hard to explain-away facts. And even in their Facebook post of July 13th, they continue to hide J.C. Boyle's drawing and narrative of the 31-foot-tall natural dam!

Lets face facts here: When KRRC and it's band of surrogate fishing-zealots came out with their propaganda campaign, they proclaimed it was all about restoring a fish migration, which we now know from hard indisputable facts, wasn't happening.

And now, in a July 8th email to naturalist Mr. William E. Simpson II, Mr. Glen Spain, who wears two-faces; one as a member of Klamath River Renewal Corporation's board of director, and also as the NW Regional Director at Institute for Fisheries Resources, made this shocking statement:

“Ultimately however whether Salmon did or did not exist above the dams is irrelevant to PacifiCorp’s decision to remove the dams today.” And near the end of the same email, Mr. Spain reiterates that; “Economics Not Salmon Is the Reason PacifiCorp is Removing the Dams”.

https://www.einnews.com/pr_news/546897224/klamath-river-dams-krrc-s-proposed-dam-removal-project-minority-consensus-for-environmental-and-ecological-disaster

One of several other natural lava dams that stood in the area of Wards Canyon for tens of thousands of years was a dam that was 130-feet tall (separate from the 31-foot-tall natural dam), and the remnants of that natural 130-foot-tall volcanic dam can still be seen today extending from the mountainsides in Ward Canyon at the location of the modern Copco 1 dam.

The 31-foot-tall natural lava dam and lake (Clammittee Lake) as seen in the drawing by famous engineer and dam builder J.C. Boyle, was provided with a narrative and published in 1913. (SEE IMAGE).

That drawing and narrative by J.C. Boyle represents the end of the migratory fish tales by fishing zealots and KRRC.

Salmon don't fly, and salmon can't jump more than about 12-feet, under ideal conditions.

The science: https://www.snopud.com/Site/Content/Documents/relicensing/Fish/EvalMigration_070106.PDF

The modern-day Copco and Iron Gate Lakes created by the dams built by J.C. Boyle, together hold 45-billion gallons of fresh water, and provide habitat for hundreds of species of flora and fauna, some of which are endangered and threatened species.

If the Klamath River dams are allowed to come out at a time when more fresh water storage is required during an unprecedented drought and wildfire, and the massive disaster predicted by dissenting noted scientists, who have been censored, comes to pass, wildlife supporters, environmentalists, taxpayers / voters will be looking for who to blame…

Notably, a series of press releases is now available containing previously sequestered information that is critical for a proper evaluation of Klamath River Renewal Corporation’s dam removal project.

In the light of honesty, the compelling evidence presented in the series condemns KRRC’s plan to remove the Klamath River dams.

The series of press releases also provides a ‘public record’ of facts that conflict with the propaganda campaign by KRRC and a minority consensus of fishing-zealots who are surrogates for KRRC's plan, and arguably could care less about the health, safety and welfare of tens of thousands of Americans who will be directly and indirectly adversely impacted by dam removal.

Nor do these cavalier minority consensus groups seem to care about the sustainability of the hundreds of species of flora and fauna in the eleven-mile corridor surrounding Ward Canyon and the Klamath River dams.

Many of the resident and migratory species that live in and around Copco and Iron Gate lakes are rare, threatened or endangered species that will be wiped-out via the destruction of their lake and shoreline ecosystems, should the dams be removed.

The Press Release titled 'Klamath River Dams: KRRC's Proposed Dam Removal Project – Minority Consensus for Environmental and Ecological Disaster’ outlines some of the serious flaws and misinformation that has been used to promote this reckless project to its present precarious status.

There is no doubt that this proposed dam removal project will seriously jeopardize the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of Southern Oregon and Northern California!

Legislators must immediately (during FERC's current scoping period) be calling-for a complete top-to-bottom review of KRRC's reckless plan.

This is especially true as of late, since the proposed dam removal project has morphed into a 'public project' given the proposed use of tax-dollars instead of only private money from PacificCorp.

And, after said top-to-bottom scrutiny of the plan, full compliance with NEPA must be undertaken.

This is the world's largest and most risk-laden dam removal in history!

Any repercussions from even the slightest misstep will end in the most severe ecological and environmental disaster ever seen on the west coast.

This is no time for anyone, especially the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), to be taking any short-cuts!

Allowing any license transfer to the Klamath River Renewal Corporation (KRRC), even with California and Oregon taxpayers on the financial hook, conflicts with FERC’s own past precedent case ruling about the absolute requirement of full NEPA compliance 'before' any license transfer when there’s any potential for adverse environmental impact. The Klamath River dams removal proposal by KRRC is as risky as they come, with potential for numerous disastrous environmental outcomes.

Siskiyou County California, through its law firm Nossaman, LLP, has filed a REQUEST FOR REHEARING on July 16, 2021. The filing can be read here: www.klamathbasincrisis.org/ferc/2021/SiskiyouRequestForRehearingFERCJune17DamLicenseTransfer071621.htm

Making matters around this dam removal proposal even more insane is that, the project budget is based-on calculations done half a decade ago, with no adjustments for inflation, or for the recently published massive cost increases due to COVID Economics that have just been seen over the past year.

Impact of COVID Economics on the construction industry: https://www.agc.org/sites/default/files/AGC%202021%20Inflation%20Alert%20-%20Ver1.1.pdf

KRRC's current obsolete budget is provably about one-half of what would arguably be needed ($900-million is needed).

'Engaging in 'discount-dam-removal' is begging for disaster.

Maryland State Police Aviation Command Helicopter Performs Aerial Hoist Rescue of Injured Swimmer from Swallow Falls in Youghiogheny River

Maryland State Police News Release

July 24, 2021

(OAKLAND, MD) – Maryland State Police rescued a swimmer who was injured Friday in Garrett County.

Shortly after 5 p.m. on Friday, Maryland State Police Helicopter Trooper 5, based at Cumberland Airport, was dispatched to perform an aerial hoist rescue of a victim who sustained a head injury after slipping on a rock. Due to the steep terrain, extended extraction time, and the nature of the victim’s injuries, a Maryland State Police Aviation Command helicopter was requested by SYSCOM through Garret County Fire and Rescue to perform an aerial hoist rescue.

The Trooper 5 helicopter crew launched and once on scene, configured for an aerial hoist rescue while the pilots maneuvered the AW-139 helicopter into a steady 275-foot hover position above the river. Garrett County Fire and Rescue personnel provided patient care during the ground operations and assisted in preparing the patient.

The Trooper/Rescue Technician with medical equipment was lowered down to the scene to assess and prepare the patient for an aerial extraction using a Patient Extrication Platform (PEP) bag. The patient accompanied by the Trooper/Rescue Technician was hoisted up to the helicopter. Once the patient was secured inside the aircraft, Trooper 5 transitioned to its medevac role and provided advanced level medical care while enroute to J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital Morgantown, WV.

The Maryland State Police Aviation Command has served Maryland citizens since 1970, and operates a fleet of ten helicopters from seven bases throughout Maryland on a 24/7/365 basis. Missions include medevac, law enforcement, search and rescue, homeland security, and disaster assessment. The success of rescues performed by the Aviation Command depends a great deal on the cooperative effort of local fire, rescue, EMS and law enforcement.
