At a meeting at UCLA, state Department of Finance Director Michael C. Genest said one option involves simply continuing the current pay-as-you-go approach. But Genest warned that approach would continue to eat up a growing share of tax dollars that are also needed to pay for badly needed schools, public safety improvements, and roads and transportation infrastructure. Another option involves “pre-funding” the cost by borrowing $31 billion and depositing it into a retiree benefit trust fund, eliminating $48 billion in unfunded liabilities for health care costs. With a “full funding” option, the state would pay $2.6 billion a year into a retiree benefit trust fund, covering the annual health-care costs and amortizing the debts. A final option, known as the “hybrid approach,” would couple the pay-as-you-go approach for existing employees with full funding for new employees. “Such a system might minimize near-term costs while at the same time reducing out-year costs,” Genest said. “Of course, this would mean the state would continue to report an unfunded liability for years to come, but it would not continue to grow with the addition of new employees. “I urge the commission to include such a hybrid approach among the options you consider.” But John Cogan, a public policy professor at Stanford University and a member of the Public Employee Post-Employment Benefits Commission, raised questions with the “hybrid” approach. Cogan said the proposal repeats the mistake officials have made in the past by over-promising generous benefits to workers that the state can no longer afford. “To have the governor set up a commission and then for us to propose to do nothing, these liabilities would be a huge mistake,” Cogan said. “I’m concerned the proposal being offered would not reduce the unfunded liabilities that the state has incurred as a result of its retirement plans. “To me, the central job of this commission is to make recommendations that will reduce that unfunded liability.” The Legislative Analyst’s Office presented a report to the commission that estimates pension and retiree health unfunded liabilities for teachers, state workers and University of California employees at $95 billion. That figure doesn’t include debt incurred by numerous cities and counties throughout the state. Former state Assemblyman Keith Richman, a Granada Hills Republican who heads the California Foundation for Fiscal Responsibility, has estimated the unfunded pension and health- care liabilities for all city, county and state workers at $200 billion to $300 billion. Amid the growing debt, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger established the 12-member commission late last year to propose ways to fix the problem. The commission is holding a series of meetings around the state to identify the extent of the unfunded liabilities. It also plans to review and analyze options for the situation and is expected to recommend a plan to the governor and Legislature by Jan. 1. email@example.comWant local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! CALIFORNIA: Panel will consider several options to stem state’s unfunded liability. By Troy Anderson STAFF WRITER Alarmed that the annual taxpayer tab for teachers’ and state workers’ pensions and health benefits has soared from $1 billion to more than $5 billion since 2000, California officials called Friday for fixes to stem the financial outpouring. The calls come amid growing concern about California’s pension crisis, which has deepened over the past seven years as the average county fund has gone from being flush with cash to being at least 9 percent underfunded. And officials are worried the state’s already massive unfunded liabilities for pensions and retiree health benefits – estimated as high as $300 billion combined – will only continue to grow. But on Friday, a governor- appointed commission charged with addressing the problem said it is committed to finding options before the situation gets even worse. “We want to make sure that we address now the magnitude of the problem and not saddle future generations with a burden they haven’t created,” said commission Chairman Gerald Parsky, chairman of the Aurora Capital Group, a Los Angeles-based investment firm.

RANKED 8. Robin Friday – the best footballer you never saw – Cardiff City and Reading may sound unlikely locations for football greats, but Friday has become a cult figure. His iconic ‘V’ sign gesture towards Luton goalkeeper Milija Aleksic was used by the Super Furry Animals’ for the cover of their single ‘The Man Don’t Give a F***’ and his career and antics are the subject of a book, above, that’s set to become a film. Friday died when he was just 38 in 1990, but the legend lives on. no dice Many players are criticised for being too bland, but it’s unfair to tar everyone with this brush.This lot entertained us and did things their way while representing the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool and West Ham.And not one of them, to our knowledge, has ever been spotted donning socks with sandals or wearing Crocs on their feet. 16.

At least they do, according to talkSPORT.com.Andrea Pirlo definitely had it, judging by the meltdown some fans had when he announced his decision to retire from playing football in 2017. 17 Berahino hits back at b******t Johnson criticism – ‘I was in a dark place at Stoke’ 17 6.

Craig Johnston – was very big Down Under but his wife disagreed – Why Johnston’s life story has not been made into a film, we do not know. Nearly lost his leg as a kid, travelled across the world from Australia as a 15-year-old with a dream of playing football, became a pro through sheer will power, ended up winning the lot with Liverpool, wrote a number three single, before retiring from the game aged 28 to look after his seriously ill sister. Then he invented the Adidas Predator. What a guy. 17 7. Dimitar Berbatov – Andy Garcia WISHES he was him – Keep calm and pass him the ball because he is far too important to exert himself by running after it himself. Here is a player with true elegance. When someone has great qualities sometimes they don’t have to put much effort into things. Sometimes the things I do look effortless but it’s not like that. It’s very difficult, but because of my style of play I make it look easy.” In other words, the things other footballers find hard to execute are no problem for him. REPLY 17 BEST OF 17 17 3. Diego Maradona – you had to hand it to him – Diego Armando Maradona is the most entertaining footballer ever; a genius who fulfilled his incredible potential, yet somehow managed to remain an outsider. His greatness has inspired a religion where, on 30 October his birthday fans worship at the Maradonian Church in Argentina. Amen. 15. Mario Kempes – he loved short shorts – Mario Kempes scored 20 goals for Argentina 13. Slaven Bilic – Croatia’s defensive rock – A law graduate and key part of a football hipster’s wet dream – the magnificent 1998 Croatia side – when he wasn’t pissing off the French at the 1998 World Cup, Bilic loved to rock. So much so, that he once refused to go and get his man of the match champagne at West Ham until he’d met Iron Maiden guitarist Steve Harris – a big Hammers fan – after hearing the metal legend was backstage at Upton Park.

George Best – the good, the bad and the bubbly! – “I used to go missing a lot: Miss Canada, Miss United Kingdom, Miss World ” Ladies and gents, Mr George Best. It was awful to see someone considered one of the worlds greatest ever players sink into alcoholism, but what a life this man led. Among his achievements European Cup winner, league title winner, Ballon dOr winner, Man Uniteds top scorer in four seasons he also owned fashion boutiques, nightclubs and even had an airport named in his honour. 4. Andrea Pirlo – he thinks, therefore he is cool – He was only capable of scoring beautiful goals and looked effortless when he did it. Based on his playing style, he was one of the coolest players in recent times. He even owns a vineyard. 9. Johan Cruyff – total football, total legend – Bucked the trend for shirt numbers being 1-11 when he donned no.14. Cruyff’s power also saw the Dutch FA allow him to play for the national side with just two stripes on his kit, rather than Adidas’ three, due to his personal sponsorship with Puma. So cool he ‘won’ the World Cup in 1974, even though the Netherlands lost. 17 14. Paul McGregor – the frontman who was actually a frontman – McGregor was dubbed the first ‘Britpop footballer’ in the mid-1990s, when he was playing for Forest in the Premier League. Around the time his goal sent the Tricky Trees into a 1996 UEFA Cup quarter-final against Bayern Munich, he was also playing gigs as frontman of Britpop band Merc. He later quit football to form post-punk band Ulterior, whose approach to entertaining the audience at gigs has been described by McGregor as “we don’t care, you’re having this”. Andrea Pirlo just reading about how great Andrea Pirlo is 17 Son ban confirmed as Tottenham fail with appeal to overturn red card shining 1. Eric Cantona – the collar… the king fu kick… the King – The only player who was ever in charge of Alex Ferguson, we’ll leave it to his slightly less cool team-mate, Gary Neville, to explain why Cantona was the King. “Eric did things his way and no one interfered, not even the manager. When we all turned up at a civic event at Manchester Town Hall to celebrate the double, Eric wandered in wearing a denim jacket instead of a blazer. We looked him up and down and wondered how the boss would react when he arrived. Surely he’d go berserk. The press were there and all sorts of VIPs. But the manager just shook his head and smiled. ‘Eh, lads,’ he said. ‘Some man, that Cantona.’” 5. Gunter Netzer – friend to the Sinatras and a bloody good player – I understand that I must run, but I do so reluctantly, at least, without the ball. Netzer was a stylish and unconventional footballer, who lit up football in the 1960s and 70s. He could change the pace of a game with his passing and awareness, was twice a league winner with Borussia Monchengladbach and Real Madrid as well as a European and world champion with Germany. Away from football he ran a nightclub called Lovers Lane, but never drank alcohol, while he was also invited to Tina Sinatras Las Vegas wedding in 1976. 12. Paul Breitner – rebel without a razor – Who leaves Real Madrid for Eintracht Braunschweig? Paul Breitner. Who can make lederhosen look cool? Paul Breitner. With his curly mop and sixth form politics, back in the ’70s World Cup winner Breitner was like a much cooler Russell Brand. Much cooler. And his nickname was ‘Der Afro’.

Shoplifting suspect who died in crash after fleeing police identifiedA shoplifting suspect who was fleeing from police died in a crash on Gap Road Thursday morning, according to Knoxville (KPD), in Tennessee. Two KPD officers were on their way to a crash on I-640 between Gap Road and Western Avenue when officers learned a shoplifting suspect, identified as 26-year-old Benjamin Richey from Knoxville, had fled from a Pilot store on Western Avenue. According to the police department, a description of Richey’s Honda Civic and license plate number were relayed to officers and when they got near the I-640 crash scene, they saw him going east on I-640 so they tried to pull him over.The suspect reportedly fled so officers did not pursue them and continued to the crash scene. The officers said they saw the suspect exit onto Gap Road and head south. When Knoxville Police arrived on scene of the first crash, the 911 Center got a call reporting another serious crash on Gap Road near Leflore Avenue. When officers arrived there, they found two vehicles that had hit head-on. Police said one vehicle was the suspect involved in the shoplifting at Pilot. The suspect, who was also the driver, was pronounced dead on the scene. The female passenger in the suspect’s vehicle was taken to UT Medical Center for treatment for non-life threatening injuries. Police said they later learned the Honda Civic they were in was reported stolen Wednesday.Nathaniel Howard, who was driving the second vehicle, reportedly ran from the crash scene but was found later. He was wanted on Federal gun charges and police said he was trying avoid being arrested. Howard was driving a 2018 Dodge Charger. Officers said Howard and a female passenger were also taken to UT Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. Once Howard is released, KPD said he will be turned over to Federal authorities. A preliminary investigation shows the Civic was traveling South on Gap Road when the driver crossed the yellow line and struck the Dodge, heading northbound, head-on.

Frank said in a news release. U.S. District Court by Chief Judge Nancy Torreson also ordered Jose Castillo Febles of Doral, Florida, to undergo three years of supervised release. Febles, 31, also must pay more than $25,000 in restitution.Febles used stolen credit card and debit card numbers to purchase merchandise between November 2015 and June 2016, court records show. Febles traveled to Maine in May 2016 and purchased $500 of merchandise from a Portland Walgreens using a credit card stolen from an Auburn victim, Frank said. Febles pleaded guilty to the charges on Aug. 25, 2017. [Source: The Press-Herald]Restaurant employee jailed for theftA Paris, Texas, woman is accused of stealing over $10,000 from a Denny’s. Police say Ryan Elizabeth Bowman was arrested Thursday on a warrant for felony theft. Investigators say the 35-year-old stole over $13,000 from the Denny’s on the loop in Paris when she worked there. The manager of that location declined to comment and police won’t say how Bowman got the money. [Source: KXII12 News]Former ICE attorney sentenced to 4 years for stealing immigrants’ identitiesA former attorney for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement was sentenced to four years in prison for stealing the identities of immigrants facing deportation. Raphael A. Sanchez, 44, is the former chief counsel for ICE’s Office of Principal Legal Advisor in Seattle, according to the Department of Justice. Prosecutors say he used ICE databases and computers to commit his crimes.Sanchez pleaded guilty in February to one count of wire fraud and one count of aggravated identity theft, according to a statement from DOJ. Sanchez was also ordered to pay over $190,000 in restitution — the amount prosecutors say he stole using fraudulent credit card accounts he opened. “Raphael Sanchez was entrusted with overseeing the honest enforcement of our country’s immigration laws,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General John Cronan in a statement. “Instead, Sanchez abused that trust, and capitalized on his position at ICE to exploit his victims and line his own pockets.”DOJ said Sanchez admitted to intentionally defrauding aliens in various stages of immigration removal proceedings. Sanchez used their identities to open lines of credit and personal loans. He also manipulated credit bureau files, transferred funds to himself and made purchases in using credit cards obtained in the names of his victims. Sanchez admitted that he obtained the information using ICE’s computer database, and used his work computer to forge Social Security cards and Washington state driver’s licenses, according to DOJ.The Associated Press reported that Sanchez told court officials prior to his sentencing that he struggled with money troubles, depression, fatigue and a failed relationship before launching into his scheme. “It became a perfect storm that did not allow me to see the hurtfulness and wrongfulness of my actions,” he said, according to the AP. “I pretended I needed no one and thought material things would bring me happiness, even if temporarily. I created an intricate, beautiful, yet soul-less house of cards that suddenly came crashing down.” He apologized for his crimes in court Thursday and told the judge he’s relieved to be in custody: “The stress is gone,” he said. [Source: USA Today] Newly revealed Exactis data leak bigger than Equifax’sWhat happens when you leave a database filled with personal information open to the Internet? People find it: That’s what happened to marketing data firm Exactis with its database of information on roughly 340 million people. Security researcher Vinnie Troia of Night Lion Security discovered the database through a Shodan search. Exactis is a marketing data company that provides companies with the sort of information needed to target ads to people browsing the Web. Troia told Wired, “It seems like this is a database with pretty much every US citizen in it,” adding, “I don’t know where the data is coming from, but it’s one of the most comprehensive collections I’ve ever seen.”While the data did not include credit card or social security numbers, it did include everything from political preferences to browsing and purchase data for a wide variety of items. Taken together, the pieces of information would allow an advertiser or database user to form a very detailed picture of the targeted individual. “The data reported to have been leaked is incredibly comprehensive and can be used by hackers to develop more targeted phishing scams,” said John “Lex” Robinson, cybersecurity strategist at Cofense. “Phishing is a serious threat because it works, with personalized phish often making their way past stacks of expensive technology layers and email gateways to land in an unsuspecting user’s inbox.” In terms of size, the Exactis leak dwarfs the Equifax breach, which exposed nearly 146 million records. Exactis has now taken the database off the public Internet, but has made no public statement on the affair. At the time of this article’s publication, the company’s website was down, with a request returning a 508 error.
