Department of Labor gives unemployment update; how you can speed up processing on your claim

first_imgWhile many people are facing unprocessed claims, Reardon says one of the most common reasons applications are labeled as “partially complete” is because the Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN) is either missing or incorrect. Correcting those errors requires a call from a NYSDOL representative, which Reardon says can lead to significant delays on claims. (WBNG) — The New York State Department of Labor announced they have delivered more than three billion dollars to more than one million residents in the last six weeks. New York State Labor Commissioner Roberta Reardon says they are operating seven days a week to keep up with the hundreds of thousands of calls they are receiving daily. If you are still experiencing an unprocessed claim, NYSDOL is asking you to not call in. Reardon says a NYSDOL representative will reach out if they need any additional information. If you experience a denied claim and would like to appeal, head over to this related article about pro bono legal assistance.center_img That directive was sent out to 320,000 New York State businesses. Reardon also recommends a few ways to ensure you receive your benefits as fast as possible. File your claim online, be sure to fill out the information completely, and use direct deposit if possible. If you receive benefits through a KeyBank debit card, you can switch to direct deposit by visiting www.labor.ny.gov. Click on “unemployment services”, then “update personal information”, and lastly selecting “register for direct deposit”. “I’m issuing a directive reminding all businesses in New York State, they have a legal obligation to provide their workers with the information they need to apply for unemployment insurance, including the business FEIN,” said Reardon. last_img read more

Ben and Sammy looking to end year on a high note

first_img11 Dec 2013 Ben and Sammy looking to end year on a high note English boy champion Ben Amor (Marlborough, Wiltshire) and girl international Sammy Fuller (Roehampton, Surrey) will seek to add to England’s past successes in the event when they compete in the Junior Orange Bowl at Biltmore Golf Club, Florida, on 27th – 30th December. Amor (image © Leaderboard Photography), 18, won the English boys title for the Carris Trophy after a three-way playoff at West Lancashire Golf Club in July. He finished tied with on 286, two under par, with Italy’s Renato Paratore and Jamie Li from Bath but won with a par at the second extra hole. Amor, a member of the re-constituted England ‘A’ squad, also finished third in the Welsh Open Youths Championship, fourth in the Canadian Junior Challenge and won all six of his games on his England debut in the Boys Home Internationals. Fuller, 14, was in England’s winning team at the Girls’ Home Internationals and represented GB&I in the Junior Vagliano Trophy. This year, she also had top-ten finishes in the women’s Welsh Open, Irish Open and English Close Championships, she won the Bridget Jackson Bowl and was third on the 2013 Lorrin Golf England girls’ Order of Merit. She is a past English under 13 girls’ champion. Sammy has enjoyed much success in the US. Last winter, she set a transatlantic record with her sixth consecutive win in the Pars Florida International Junior Championship. She has won her way through the age groups every year since 2006 and in 2012 won both the under 14 division and the overall girls’ prize. On the same visit to the States she won her age group in the Honda Junior Classic for the third straight time. The prestigious Junior Orange Bowl is an under 18 event and has separate boys and girls tournaments over 72 holes of stroke play. Two English boys have won the title. Ben Parker, now a professional, won over the Biltmore course in 2005 while Patrick Kelly triumphed by 13 strokes a year ago. Stiggy Hodgson, who has also turned professional, finished runner-up in 2008.last_img read more

Sickles to Open Second Location in Red Bank

first_imgBy Judy O’Gorman AlvarezRED BANK – Sickles Market, the 100-plus year old farm market will open a second location on the West side of Red Bank in late 2017.The 8,000-square-foot planned building will be on the site of the former Anderson Moving and Storage building on Bridge Avenue that has been empty for decades.The new market will be an important part of the gentrification of Red Bank’s West side.Sickles is leasing the location from Metrovation and working with the architecture firm Richardson Smith Architects.“We feel we have a strong brand in the area,” said Bob Sickles, owner of Sickles Market, which started more than 100 years ago.The new Sickles Market will have similar inventory in both stores. A new addition to the fare – in both Red Bank and Little Silver locations – will be seafood.“It will all be devoted to food,” says Sickles. With little room for the gift and garden centers now found at the Little Silver market, aThe Sickles family once operated a grocery, wine, and liquor store in Red Bank around the 1960s-70s, said Bob Sickle. Photo courtesy Sickles Familypossible pop-up garden center may be added.The sprawling ground floor will house produce, bakery, seafood and specialty foods and limited seating, while upstairs floor will have office space. An important element will be 155 parking spaces. “Parking is key in Red Bank,” Sickles said.“The future for us is focused on perishables in the food area,” he said. “Cheese in particular is our strong suit; charcuterie is something we’re going to take even further” in the Red Bank location.What this will mean for Red Bank is a continued gentrification of Red Bank and the Westside in particular. “And I imagine at least 40 or 50 jobs will be added” he said.Sickles thinks a market like this will allow shoppers a convenient place for produce, gourmet foods and now seafood, with access to the bridges leading to Middletown and River Plaza, in addition to the Red Bank train station.Sickles said the move to the Red Bank location is almost fitting as his grandfather once had a store in Red Bank for a time in the early 1900s. Also, Sickles said, he knew the Anderson children while growing up.“We realize we’re in the midst of suburbia,” and Red Bank is a semi-urban area. “We’re going to need nice urban places for people to live and save green space area.”last_img read more

Momentum is with the Proteas: Amla

first_img26 February 2014 South Africa will carry vital momentum into the third test against Australia in Cape Town starting this weekend, Proteas batsman Hashim Amla said in an interview on Tuesday. After being thrashed by 281 runs in the first test in Centurion, Graeme Smith and company bounced back with a 231-run victory in only four days in Port Elizabeth in the second test that ended last weekend. The Proteas’ victory over Australia at St George’s Park was one of the most memorable fight-backs he had been a part of, said Amla.Fight-backs “Over the last few years we’ve had quite a few fight-backs,” he explained. “I say fight-backs to win the test, as well as fight-backs to hold on to the draw, like the matches at The Wanderers and Adelaide. Over the last few years there have been some really memorable test matches, and this last one is one of them because we came out on top.” The win in Port Elizabeth was all the more remarkable because Wayne Parnell was lost to the bowling attack after only 8.3 overs due to an injury. Now the Proteas head to Newlands, which has traditionally been a happy hunting ground for them.Newlands The last time South Africa lost at the Cape Town ground was way back in March 2006, when they went down to Australia. Since then they have won eight and drawn three at Newlands. Those results include victory by an innings and 20 runs over the Aussies in 2009 and a remarkable eight-wicket win in late 2011 after being skittled for only 96 in their first innings. That was followed by Australia being bowled out for just 47, which included 5 for 15 from Vernon Philander on his debut.‘We have momentum’ “Newlands has been a happy ground for the Proteas over the last few years, but Australia is a good team,” Amla said. “There is a lot riding on the last game, and fortunately we have momentum and that is what we are going to try and take carefully into the match. Going into the last test, it will be important to assess the conditions as soon as we can. Looking back, he added: “Players got hundreds and the bowlers bowled well, it’s a better situation to be in going in one-all, having won the second test.” Test batting rankings Amla is back to second in the test batting rankings, trailing only AB de Villiers, whose mark of 935 points is tied for the tenth best of all time and equal highest with Jacques Kallis for the best by a South African. Amla’s unbeaten 127 in Port Elizabeth was his 21st test century, which equalled the number of centuries scored by Gary Kirsten and left Amla third on the all-time South African list of century makers, behind only Jacques Kallis (45) and Graeme Smith (27).‘I play every game like it’s my last’ “I play every game like it’s my last,” Amla said of his latest century. “I’m grateful to have reached 21 hundreds, it feels like just the other day that I started playing International cricket. It’s also great to contribute towards a winning cause, it’s the best thing when you score runs and your team wins.” The third test at Newlands starts on Saturday, 1 March.

first_imgAllardyce responds to Everton boss Silva swipe: It wasn’t personal!by Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Everton boss Sam Allardyce has responded to a swipe from Blues manager Marco Silva.Allardyce urged Silva to sway from his ‘attractive’ style of football after the Toffees suffered defeats to Brighton, Tottenham and Leicester over the festive period, prompting a backlash from his Goodison Park successor in a press conference.“I don’t expect him to listen to me!” Allardyce told talkSPORT.“I was generalising about Everton overall, I wasn’t having a pop at Marco Silva.“I was saying that in the end, look at the previous four managers of Everton, including myself – all of them have been dismissed for one reason or another.“Marco Silva hasn’t yet, but pressure on him will depend on where they are in the league and winning football matches.“The press man who asked the question probably didn’t put it how I said it in that interview.”Allardyce also remarked: “I think you play out from the back when it suits you, and if you doesn’t suit you, you don’t play out from the back.“Everton is the only place where results haven’t given me time to go and do a better job than I did last season.“At the end of the day, it wasn’t my team. I inherited that team.“I was doing the best I could with the tools I had available. Moving on from there, they’ve spent a lot of money again, and where will they end up this season? That’s building expectation by the amount of money they spent.“I think there’s only four players that played when I was there, all the others are new players that were brought in this season.“The players themselves have got to find out about each other as they play every week and maybe that’s why they aren’t getting the results that the Everton fans would expect.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Videos: Iowa’s Adam Woodbury Has Become College Basketball’s Eye Poker

Michigan State won 66-61. (Photo by Chris Chambers/Getty Images)Something needs to be done about Adam Woodbury, Big Ten. During the first half of Iowa’s game against Maryland Sunday afternoon, the Hawkeyes’ big man poked Terrapins’ freshman guard Melo Trimble in the eye. Trimble collapsed to the floor and had to leave the game for several minutes as his eye swelled up. No foul was called during the action, but the referees charged Woodbury with a Flagrant 1 after looking at the replay. It’s possible this specific incident was not an intentional play from Woodbury, but that seems unlikely since the 7-footer has done this before. During Iowa’s game against Wisconsin, he did it twice. This is happening far too many times for it to be unintentional. Some type of punishment – a suspension, perhaps – needs to be given to Woodbury from Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany.last_img read more
