The economic contraction associated with the spread of COVID-19 and recent volatility in oil markets warrants an update to the Certification Revenue Estimate (CRE) we published in October 2019. We now estimate the state will have $110.19 billion in General Revenue-related (GR-R) funds available for general-purpose spending for the 2020-21 biennium, down $11.57 billion, or 9.5 percent, from our October estimate. This results in a projected fiscal 2021 ending deficit of $4.58 billion, a substantial downward revision from our previously projected surplus of $2.89 billion.

In fiscal 2021, the Economic Stabilization Fund (ESF) and State Highway Fund (SHF) each will receive $1.1 billion in transfers from the General Revenue Fund for severance taxes collected in fiscal 2020. After accounting for appropriations and investment and interest earnings, we project an ESF fiscal 2021 ending balance of $8.79 billion. We expect severance tax collections in fiscal 2021 to drop significantly from fiscal 2020, resulting in smaller fiscal 2022 transfers to the ESF and SHF of about $620 million each. The SHF also will receive $2.5 billion from sales taxes collected in each year of the biennium, although the final transfer from fiscal 2021 collections will not occur until September 2021, the first month of fiscal 2022.


Due to the impact of COVID-19 on the working arrangements of the Council during its 2020 session, elections for the April Management Meeting were partially conducted through silence procedure. The June Management Meeting has been scaled down to one day and was held as an informal virtual meeting. The July Management Meeting has also been scaled down to one day and will be held with the same virtual arrangements as the June Management Meeting.


Following this serious incident, the operator introduced a daily check to ensure adult females were referred to as Ms on the relevant documentation, with a secondary check by Operations staff against passenger loads. A more formal system of checks was introduced on 24 July 2020.


Background: New York City (NYC) was the US epicenter of the spring 2020 coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. We present the seroprevalence of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection and correlates of seropositivity immediately after the first wave.


Methods: From a serosurvey of adult NYC residents (13 May to 21 July 2020), we calculated the prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 antibodies stratified by participant demographics, symptom history, health status, and employment industry. We used multivariable regression models to assess associations between participant characteristics and seropositivity.


Several tornadoes developed across western Wisconsin on July 21, 2020. That map below shows where the confirmed touchdowns occurred (blue lines/triangles). All five tornadoes were rated EF-0. One tornado hit the town of Cadott Wisconsin. Many thanks goes out to all the storm spotters that submitted real-time reports. The image to the right shows the tornado as it approached Cadott, courtesy of Scott Graupner.


As of July 25, 2020, CDC had deployed 208 teams to assist 55 state, tribal, local, and territorial health departments. Teams worked with local counterparts to address transmission in high-risk settings, including long-term care facilities (26%), food processing facilities (12%), correctional facilities (6%), and settings providing services to persons experiencing homelessness (5%).

The ACSC has remained committed to protecting Australians from malicious cyber activity during this difficult time, including by disrupting cybercriminals operating offshore and working with industry partners to increase protective measures. From 1 July 2020 to 30 June 2021, the ACSC:


On 15 September 2020, the then Minister for Defence announced that the ACSC, in collaboration with Telstra and Services Australia, had launched a pilot program to identify and reject illegitimate phishing text messages that impersonate myGov and Centrelink before they reached Telstra customers. The ACSC continues to work with the broader telecommunications industry towards an industry-wide solution, and strongly encourages all organisations and individuals to exercise caution and remain vigilant when clicking links.


The ACSC has enhanced its capability to respond at speed and scale to websites hosting malicious content. Since the commencement of the current takedown service in March 2021, the ACSC has removed more than 7,700 websites or services from the internet that were hosting malicious content related to the coronavirus pandemic. This is a significant increase compared to the same period in 2020. During this period, the ACSC was primarily focused on protecting the national vaccine supply, which resulted in more than 58 per cent of removals occurring within 24 hours of identification. During this period, 96.9 per cent of malicious web services detected were taken down.


To support Australians in avoiding and recovering from ransomware incidents such as the above, the ACSC provides technical advice and guidance to the public on active ransomware software via cyber.gov.au. In December 2020, the ACSC launched the Act Now, Stay Secure media campaign, the first phase of which focused on providing advice to Australians on protecting themselves from ransomware.


Finally, three unknown armed men kidnapped Sheikh Saide Bacar in Pemba on 25 July (Carta de Mocambique, 28 July 2020). Sheikh Saide is a representative of the government-recognized Conselho Islâmico de Mocambique (CISLAMO) and prayed at an event with Mozambican president Filipe Nyusi in Pemba in February. Sheikh Bacar and CISLAMO have been longtime foes of the insurgency, and the sheikh denounced a religious group that appears to have been a forerunner to the insurgency back in 2016, urging state authorities to take action against young religious ideologues (Club of Mozambique, 12 October 2017). Yet Mozambican security services arrested him in 2018 and held him for a month, before CISLAMO intervened to free him. There have been other recent abductions of Muslim religious leaders in Cabo Delgado, including Sheikh Kidume, of Palma, who disappeared in April, and Sheikh Kada Sualeh Chabane, of Mucojo, Macomia district, who was taken last year (Club of Mozambique, 28 April 2020). The abductions are unsolved, but local speculation mostly centers on the government as likely perpetrators. In a somewhat analogous case, Sheikh Muemede Selemane was arrested earlier this year after he entered a police station to inquire about the arrest of one of his congregants.


Aside from security threats from insurgents and government forces, Cabo Delgado civilians have also had to contend with increasing access challenges. The most dire is a lack of access to clean water in many parts of the conflict zone. The cholera crisis has deepened and spread to new areas (Zitamar News, 27 July 2020). In Pangane, on the Macomia district coast, 52 people had died of the disease as of 25 July. Four security force personnel had also fallen ill, but had been evacuated by boat to Ibo. Locals were not so lucky. Though Pangane residents say the pace of new infections is slowing, they are still deeply concerned about the lack of medical aid in the area. Olumbe, Palma district, has also had an outbreak, in which eight people have died so far. A health team tried to reach the town by boat last week, but had to turn back due to poor weather. In all, the Mozambican Health Ministry has recorded 1,288 cases of diarrhea and 18 resulting deaths in Ibo, Macomia, Mocimboa da Praia, Pemba, and Metuge, but those numbers are a clear undercount, as no new data has come out of some of the more war-torn districts in weeks.


Displaced civilians also increasingly lack access to housing. The mayor of Pemba, Florete Simba Motarua, said that his city is already at capacity and has no space to house more displaced people beyond the estimated 30,000 already there (Club of Mozambique, 27 July 2020). Yet between 23 and 25 July, another 800 displaced civilians arrived in Pemba by boat, mostly from the Mucojo (Macomia district) and Mocimboa da Praia areas. Similarly, the camps recently established for displaced people in Metuge district are already overfilled, with people having to sleep outside even if families double up in available tents (Observador, 23 July 2020). Food is also tight in the Metuge camps, which is concerning, as there should be no security challenges in getting resources to Metuge. The government is planning a new camp in Nampula province, but is only in the early stages (Radio Mocambique, 22 July 2020).


Satellite Remote Sensing Investigation of 21 July 2020 Shaziba Landslide, China Wandi Wang1,2, Mahdi Motagh1,2, Sara Mirzaee3, Sigrid Roessner1 and Tao Li4Section 1.4 - Remote Sensing and Geoinformatics, GFZ German Research Center for Geosciences, Potsdam, Germany Institute of Photogrammetry and Geoinformation, Leibniz University Hannover, Hannover, Germany Department of Marine Geology and Geophysics, University of Miami, United States GNSS Research Center, Wuhan University, China We present the results of remote sensing analysis of deformation related to the 21 July 2020 Shaziba landslide in China. The landslide, which occurred following the heavy precipitation from June to August 2020, is located at the Qingjiang River, approx. 30 km from Enshi City in Hubei Province of China. It destroyed over 60 houses, and by blocking the course of the river, formed a landslide dam, which threatened the safety of people and infrastructure downstream. Although Shaziba landslide occurred in form of reactivation of an old landslide, the landslide prone slope was not instrumented prior to this most recent failure. Therefore, high-resolution remote sensing imagery was used as a very effective source of information for a detailed investigation of the evolution of this slope failure. We collected the satellite remote sensing data covering a time period from June 2016 to July 2021 and comprise optical and radar data. Firstly, cross-correlation analysis using satellite optical imagery from Planet and Sentinel-2 systems was used to retrieve the lateral direction and magnitude of landslide movements. Next, multi-temporal interferometry (MTI) analysis based on Sentinel-1 and TerraSAR-X SAR data was exploited to obtain pre- and post-failure deformation. Results from different MTI techniques including Persistent Scatterer (PS), Small Baseline Subsets (SBAS), and Eigendecomposition based Maximum-likelihood-estimator of Interferometric phase (EMI) were compared to evaluate the most suitable method for InSAR time-series analysis of deformation related to the evolution of Shaziba landslide. Finally, several high-resolution DEMs derived from TanDEM-X (TDX) data were analyzed using repeat-pass interferometry and stacked together to compensate for the errors related to DEM alignment in order to precisely estimate the landslide volume. The results highlight how the integration of various remote sensing sensors helps to gain a better understanding of landslide evolution process and characterization. 041b061a72
