$50 million in loans to small businesses available in Texas

first_imgAUSTIN — Governor Greg Abbott announced Monday that Goldman Sachs and the LiftFund, along with other community development financial institutions (CDFIs), are partnering to provide $50 million in loans to small businesses in Texas that have been affected by COVID-19 as part of the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program.These loans, made through the U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), will primarily be used for payroll so that employees can continue to receive paychecks and small businesses can retain their employees and will be partially or wholly forgiven.“Small businesses and their employees are at the heart of the Texas economy, and they need support during these difficult times,” Abbott said. “These loans will help us revitalize our economy and restore Texans’ livelihoods as we respond to COVID-19. I thank Goldman Sachs and the LiftFund for providing this lifeline to Texas small businesses and their employees by providing them with the support they need to overcome the challenges posed by COVID-19. This partnership is an important first step in our journey to economic recovery in the state of Texas.” LiftFund is a non-profit organization, headquartered in San Antonio, that helps small business owners with limited access to capital. The company offers small business loans and minority business loans for entrepreneurs.LiftFund partners with SBA lenders and other lending institutions to provide startup loans, SBA 504 Loans, and microloans in Texas, and throughout the South Eastern U.S. In 2018, LiftFund had 591 donors, 118 investors, 500 partners, and 100 employees.The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. is a leading global investment banking, securities and investment management firm that provides a wide range of financial services to a substantial and diversified client base that includes corporations, financial institutions, governments and individuals.Founded in 1869, the firm is headquartered in New York and maintains offices in all major financial centers around the world. Next UpJohn Waldron, president and chief operating officer of Goldman Sachs, said he has seen first-hand the determination and resilience of small business owners in Texas, having worked alongside them for years through Goldman’s 10,000 Small Businesses program.“Goldman Sachs understands that our communities and economy rely on small business, and we are doing everything we can to support this vital engine of economic growth and employment,” he said.Goldman Sachs will provide the capital as part of its $550 million commitment to COVID-19 relief, and LiftFund, alongside other CDFIs, will administer the funding to qualified small businesses. If all stipulations are met, small business can have their loans forgiven in full by the SBA.center_img Business owners can apply for a PPP loan and find more information about the program on the LiftFund website.The governor was joined for the announcement by President and CEO of LiftFund Janie Barrera.Also joining the Governor were Brent Reaves, owner of Smokey John’s Bar-B-Que in Dallas, Patricia and Clint Butler, owners of Coffeecionado Community Roasters in San Antonio, and Michele and Mitch Allen, owners of iRun Texas in San Antonio.The Butlers and Allens will be the first to benefit from this partnership to provide PPP loans in Texas.last_img read more

DeAngelo Williams now has starting role in Bell’s absence

first_imgPittsburgh Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams arrives for an NFL football game against the Baltimore Ravens, Oct. 1, 2015, in Pittsburgh. (AP Photo/Keith Srakocic//File)PITTSBURGH (AP) _ The Pittsburgh Steelers have to move on without injured star running back Le’Veon Bell.Veteran DeAngelo Williams leads a group of backs that will carry the load the rest of the way after Bell, an All-Pro and team MVP in 2014, was placed on injured reserve Monday with a right knee injury suffered Sunday against Cincinnati.“Right now, we are going to rally around DeAngelo Williams,” Steelers’ coach Mike Tomlin said on Tuesday. “He did a great job for us the first couple weeks this season when Le’Veon was out. We will get back with him being the feature guy in our backfield, and we will supplement the others around him.”Tomlin said Bell’s knee injury was significant, but the anterior cruciate ligament is still intact. He said Bell is meeting with team doctors and the medical staff this week to discuss potential surgery, timetable and other options.“We haven’t talked openly about what the plan or course of action is for him regarding surgery,” Tomlin said. “Really there is no timetable. With him being on (injured reserve), we are going to do what is right and appropriate and take care of him.”The Steelers signed Williams to a two-year contract in March to help take some of the workload off Bell. Tomlin was pleased with the 10-year veteran as he filled in for Bell, who was suspended the first two games this season for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.Williams, who holds just about every significant rushing record for the Carolina Panthers, led all AFC rushers and tied a Steelers’ record with three touchdowns in one game while Bell was suspended.“He’s an established, capable guy who we know can deliver,” Tomlin said. “There’s a great deal of comfort in knowing his capabilities.”Tomlin said Jordan Todman is the team’s No. 2 running back behind Williams. The Steelers also plan to bring 2014 third-round pick Dri Archer and eventually the newly signed Isaiah Pead into the mix.“It’s a multi-man job replacing the skillset of Le’Veon Bell,” Tomlin said.The Steelers signed Todman in September after he was released by the Panthers. Todman, a sixth-round draft pick in 2011, spent time with four other teams before coming to Pittsburgh where he has five special teams tackles and rushed once for 11 yards.On Monday, the Steelers brought in Pead, a 2012 second-round pick, who played in 27 games with St. Louis before he was released in September. Tomlin doesn’t plan to rush him into the rotation.“He has a skill set that is going to help us at some point, and I emphasize at some point because he has to learn what to do,” Tomlin said. “We have to see how he progresses in terms of learning what to do and when he is above the line we will consider utilizing his skill set.”Tomlin and the Steelers have to consider all options with Bell out.“We’re going to look at all the guys we have and decide what’s best,” Tomlin said.NOTES: Tomlin said DE Stephon Tuitt (knee) and S Will Allen (ankle) are scheduled to practice on Wednesday. … QB Ben Roethlisberger had no setbacks in his return on Sunday after missing four games with a knee injury. … S Mike Mitchell is going through the league’s concussion testing protocol and LB Terence Garvin remains out with a MCL sprain.___Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP_NFLlast_img read more

Criminal Lawyer Jason Doe Solves: The Case of the Money Lover

first_imgCharacters in this StoryJason Doe – defense counsel who knew there was the truth somewhereJanet Dagoseh – she was facing a preliminary hearing to establish her role in her husband’s deathDaniel Sackor – the judge who was affable in his demeanorJoshua Sackor – the prosecutor who told the defense: ‘Your witness…’Sam Weah – who was accused but claimed he was innocentSamson Dagoseh – the decedent (deceased) whose death linked his wife, who linked the accusedDorcas Soko – the woman whose name ended proceedingsA triumphant atmosphere filled the courtroom as Judge Daniel Sackor entered at 9 a.m. for the June 5 sitting with an air of affability, bordered on many years of judging criminal cases. The defendant, Janet Dagoseh was facing a preliminary hearing in a case in which she was denying culpability in the death of her husband by fire, an incident that occurred in central Monrovia, on May 25.State prosecutor Joshua Sackor walked his client through the night of the incident, to establish her innocence.“How long had you been married?”“We had been married for ten years.”“And he was a wonderful man?”“Yes, he was a man of my heart.”“Did you have any reason to kill your husband?”The defendant hesitated, wiping her eyes with a handkerchief, and gave a deep breath before adjusting her position on the witness stand: “This question has been thrown at me by many. The truth is I had no reason to kill my husband of ten years. And if anybody thinks there is any reason, let them prove it.”“Like all human relations, marriage has its ups and downs; and that, I think, is normal. That would not give me cause to hurt another human being…let alone my wonderful husband.”“Thank you,” the defense counsel said, as he walked towards his bench. He searched through documents on the table and after a couple of seconds, made three steps towards the defendant. With an unmistakable air of triumph, he solicited: “Tell us about the night your husband died, Mrs. Dagoseh.”The courtroom remained silent.“It was the night that I wish I had not lived to hear about,” she was barely audible, and the spectators in the courtroom leaned forward.“I had left the house about 6pm for choir practice. The church is located in Sinkor, and I rode a motorbike for the almost twenty-five minute ride. Practice ended about 7:30pm. There was a meeting that caused me to stay a little longer so I did not leave the church until about 8:30 p.m.”“By 9:00 p.m., I was nearing the Benson and Gurley Streets intersection when I saw the huge fire, the defendant Sam Weah coming from the house, along with lots of people, hurrying in the direction of the well-lit sky. Others milled about. I overheard their conversation about the fire which had killed a man they claimed was drunk in his bed.”“I did not think about any danger to me or whether Mr. Weah had anything to do with the fire till I got closer to the house when a neighbor met me and wondered how I managed to survive the fire.” She halted and wiped the tears from her eyes.She continued, “I came to myself about 30 minutes later in a hospital bed, because I had fainted. It was after I had been told of my husband’s death that rumors began to sweep across the community that I was apparently involved in my husband’s death since I was not killed in the incident.”“I am a broken woman and tired of life after losing my husband and the only house my parents left for me. My parents died in a blazing fire in 2009; I was the only survivor…” her voice broke again, and there were murmurs of sympathy from the audience.“When Weah saw me,” she continued, “he began to run through the large crowd of people.”“Your witness,” the prosecutor said, turning to defense counsel Jason Doe. It was clear that the woman’s testimony, along with previous ones, suggests circumstantial overtones that Sam Weah could have something to do with the blaze. However, Jason Doe knew there was too much for Mrs. Dagoseh to gain from her husband’s death, but to blame it on another, an innocent man, was hardly the way to do it.The accused did not factor too much in the prosecution’s deliberations with Mrs. Dagoseh but it was apparent that Judge Sackor had drawn up some conclusions. Nonetheless, the lawyer knew he now had the trump card to burst the case wide open. From closer observation of proceedings, he knew there was something fishy and he would chase whatever it was to ensure justice not only for his client, but for the man whose charred body was discovered after the blaze.The lawyer decided to ignore certain portions of the case and concentrate on the most pertinent points that could give any woman, the greedy type, the unholy belief that she could do away with her husband and turn around to enjoy the loot.As the lawyer approached the witness, he turned momentarily to the accused, whose eyes were filled with tears. The lawyer knew Weah had been a frequent visitor to the decedent’s house, as it was brought out in previous hearings, and it was clear that Mrs. Dagoseh was a cunning, coldhearted woman of steel. The lawyer swept his head away from the accused with a reassuring smile and strolled towards the witness.The courtroom tensed as ceiling and standing fans hummed, overshadowing the spectators with the afternoon breeze.Janet Dagoseh lifted herself as if to say, “I’m ready Jason, go ahead,” regained her composure, rolled her eyes, and threw her head back as defense counsel Jason Doe stood before her.A temporary silence followed which unnerved her, and unable to withstand the silence, she called for the tears that had been her companion since her husband died in the blazing fire that consumed two other houses, and had rendered her homeless.“Your parents died in a fire disaster in 2009?”“Yes.”“You were the only survivor?”“Yes.”“Your husband, or rather your late husband Samson Dagoseh worked for the United Consulting Company?”“Yes,” she said, “he was an accountant.”“He worked there for ten years?”“And you are aware that he had an insurance policy that says at his death you, his wife, would benefit from a life insurance amount of US$100,000?”The prosecutor was on his feet, “Leading the witness; what is the relevance of this line of questioning, Your Honor?”Judge Sackor lowered his eyeglasses and said, “Will the state prosecutor please tell us the point of this question?”“Your Honor,” Jason Doe said, “I am trying to establish a motive for murder. I am aware of the issue of relevance and the court will agree that the defendant has had a history of a fire incident that claimed her parents, leaving to her benefit a sizable amount when she had just married the decedent…”“Very well,” Judge Sackor said, “you may continue.”“Thank you, Your Honor,” Jason Doe said, and turning to the defendant, said: “You are supposed to earn 100,000 United States dollars as an insurance benefit from your husband’s death?”“Yes,” she said, lowering her head.“The last time you had a similar experience, which was in 2009, besides the house that you inherited, you received an insurance benefit of 175,000 United States dollars?”“Yes.”“At the time you had just married the decedent?”“Yes.”“You told the court that on the day of the tragic fire incident, on May 25, you went to choir practice in Sinkor and you arrived home around 9 p.m.?”“Yes.”Jason Doe, in an exciting tone, said, “We are in the raining season, Mrs. Dagoseh?”“Yes,” she said, “but the rains are not falling every day.”“But on May 25, how was the rain on that day?”“It did not rain that much.”“On the night the fire killed your husband, how much fell?”“I cannot remember.”“But you remember that you went to choir practice?”“I don’t miss choir practice.”“Yes, you don’t. But the day fire killed your husband you went to choir practice; you can only remember that you went to choir practice and not how much rain fell that day?”“Yes.”“What did you tell your friend Dorcas Soko, who visited you at the hospital the day after the fire killed your husband?”The defendant appeared surprised at the question and stared at the prosecutor.“I spoke to her as a friend.”“What did you say to Mrs. Soko when she told you that she believed you were bewitched, making reference to your past experience when your parents died? Remember you are under oath.”“I did not mean what I said.”“Tell the court what you said to Mrs. Soko.”Suddenly, the defendant slumped down in her chair, out of the spectators’ view. The bailiff, sheriff deputies and several police officers rushed forward to help. Judge Sackor readjusted himself on the bench and with a grin, beckoned the defense and the prosecutor to have a conference in his chambers.But before that the judge picked up his gavel and struck twice, announcing the adjournment of the case.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

[email protected]: High-Performance Computing for Silicon Design

first_imgDesigning Intel® microprocessors is extremely compute intensive. Tapeout is a final step in silicon design and its computation demand is growing exponentially for each generation of silicon process technology. Intel IT adopted high-performance computing (HPC) to address this very large computational scale and realized significant improvements in computing performance, reliability, and cost. We treated the HPC environment as a holistic computing capability—ensuring all key components were well designed, integrated, and operationally balanced with no bottlenecks. We designed our HPC model to scale to meet future needs, with HPC generations aligned with successive generations of Intel® processor technology.The success of the HPC environment was due to factors such as careful alignment of technology with business needs, informed risk taking, and disciplined execution. We are continuing to develop the next HPC generations to enable tapeout of successive generations of Intel processors.
