The Council’s action would authorize staff to conduct community outreach on the two issues in April and develop a plan for Council consideration.In other actions, the Council may adopt a $138 permit fee for sidewalk vendors. A state law that took effect Jan. 1 authorizes sidewalk vending in all California cities; however local governments are permitted to set restrictions and collect fees from vendors.The City Council meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 6 in the Council Chambers, 1424 Mission St., South Pasadena.

Vermont radio and television stations, including cable and satellite TV systems, will participate in the first nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) on Wednesday, November 9. The test, originating from Washington, D.C., will begin at approximately 2:00 p.m. Eastern and will last for about 3-1/2 minutes. During the test, the public will hear a message indicating that “This is a test.” The audio message will be the same for radio, television, and cable TV. However, television viewers will see a ‘text crawl’ at the top of their TV screens that says, ‘The Primary Entry Point has issued an Emergency Action Notification for Washington, D.C., until 2:15 p.m.’ TV viewers may or may not see other on-screen text indicating that the alert is a test. Viewers should rest assured, however, that this is only a test. The national-level EAS is a public alert and warning system that enables the President of the United States to address the American public during extreme emergencies. The system has never been used for that purpose; its primary use is to warn of state and local emergency situations, such as severe weather events. Similar to statewide and local EAS tests that are conducted frequently, the National EAS Test will air on broadcast radio and television stations, cable television systems, and satellite radio and television services across all states and territories. As the federal government and the media prepare to test their alerting capabilities, this event serves as a reminder that everyone should establish an emergency preparedness kit and an emergency plan for themselves, their families and businesses. Visit www.Ready.gov(link is external) for more information about how to prepare for and what to do in the event of an actual emergency. ‘Obviously, this is something we hope we never have to use,’ said Jim Condon of the Vermont Association of Broadcasters. ‘However, it’s important to know how well the nationwide system works in the event of a real emergency.’ For more information on the National EAS Test, visit www.easalert.org(link is external). The National EAS Test is being conducted jointly by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
Sweden’s AP7 has started a tender process for a global custodian, offering a five-year contract, according to a notice on the TED EU tenders site.The SEK460.1bn (€43.8bn) national pension fund said price was not the only criterion for selecting a custodian for the pension assets, and that the full list of criteria was given in the procurement documents alone.The deadline for the receipt of tenders and requests to participate is 13 May at a minute before midnight.AP7’s current global custodian is BNY Mellon, which has had the contract since 2014. AP7 runs the Såfa fund, which is the default option in Sweden’s Premium Pension System. Earlier this year it reported an average loss of 2.8% on the balanced fund last year, which was better than the result for private sector pension providers.The Swedish Finance Ministry has tasked pensions expert Mats Langensjö with devising a new framework for AP7, which is Sweden’s largest public sector pension fund.
