Coalition rejecting its own medicine

first_img KCS-content Coalition rejecting its own medicine whatsapp Show Comments ▼ THIS week will be critical for the coalition’s economic policies, in terms of perceptions even if not in reality. Despite their tentative nature, Tuesday’s fourth-quarter GDP figures will take centre-stage in Westminster: if they come in as expected, the coalition will celebrate; if they are weak, Labour’s Ed Balls will have a field day trashing the government and demanding a new round of Keynesian pump-priming. Neither argument would be fair – but that is politics.The consensus view is for growth of 0.4 per cent but snow-related disruption in December – an embarrassingly severe problem for a supposedly advanced economy – means that this figure could easier be lower. Frustratingly, this one-off chaos means that this week’s figures will be too distorted for anybody to be able to draw sensible conclusions from them. Detailed predictions of Tuesday’s figures are useless: nobody knows what the ONS will put them at – especially given that these statistics are frequently revised later. But while as recently as two weeks ago, virtually all the data for the UK economy had been positive, denoting decent growth, this is no longer the case. Manufacturing is still booming but services slumped in December. Construction is slowing. The employment figures also suggest that after a strong rebound between February and October, the UK economy has slowed.One reason why it is so hard to understand what is happening is the sloppy reporting of easily verifiable facts. I’m getting sick at the number of times people are claiming that “retailers suffered their worst December on record.” Had that been the case, sales would have collapsed by 99 per cent, dropping back to the level seen in the 1930s when supermarkets didn’t exist and people spent a few shillings a week. What actually happened is that the growth rate for parts of the industry was the worst in years – and there was no overall change in the volume of retail sales compared with December 2009. Volumes fell 0.8 per cent compared with November. Volumes in the three months to December was 0.4 per cent higher than a year ago. There is also an exaggerated view of the public spending cuts to date. Central government current expenditure hit a record £53.8bn in November, up 10.7 per cent year on year, a huge increase. Public sector net debt rose from £846bn in October to £863.1bn in November. Every week, billions more are still being added to the national credit card. The slowdown cannot have been caused by massive spending cuts when spending is still surging. Bizarrely, the coalition is failing to follow its own, OECD-inspired advice: that the best way to reduce a deficit is to ensure that three-quarters of the reduction comes from cuts and only a quarter from tax hikes. So far, all the tightening is coming from tax hikes, including Vat and April’s rise in national insurance. The good news is that the average forecast is now for UK growth of 2 per cent in 2011; some snow affected spending might be transferred to January. The global boom is accelerating. The bad news is that the coalition is continuing to hammer private firms with more red tape and tax – and failing to follow its own policies on spending. The markets won’t panic about growth – but if they start to worry again about the deficit, we will be in real [email protected] me on Twitter: @allisterheath Share Sunday 23 January 2011 11:18 pm whatsapp More From Our Partners Brave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.com Tags: NULLlast_img read more

New York-listed Warner hired Goldman Sachs last month to examine its options, which could lead to the sale of all or part of Warner, or the firm making its own takeover bid for EMI.Private equity vehicles including KKR and Russian billionaire Len Blavatnik are among those named as interested bidders for Warner’s businesses, which could end in a sell-off of its music publishing arm Warner / Chappell or a takeover of the entire firm.EMI has also been put up for sale by new owner Citigroup, which wrested control from Guy Hands’ Terra Firma three weeks ago in a row over its £3.4bn debt pile. Warner is thought to be keen to beat EMI to the market, believing that there is insufficient appetite among possible buyers for two music firms at the same time. EMI’s music publishing business, which owns the rights to over 1.3m songs including We Wish You A Merry Christmas, has a slightly larger back catalogue than Warner / Chappell, owner of Happy Birthday To You.Warner in November posted a wider quarterly loss as revenue growth in Britain and Italy was offset by weakness in the United States, Japan and the rest of Europe, sending its shares down eight per cent. Chief executive Edgar Bronfman said at the time that despite the challenges he remains confident that the music industry will turn the corner and soon start to benefit from years of restructuring and cost-cutting.A UK spokesperson for Warner Music Group declined to comment yesterday, while Goldman Sachs was unavailable for comment. Warner’s shares closed at $5.92 (£3.64) on Friday, giving the firm a market capitalisation of $888m. Share Show Comments ▼ Sunday 20 February 2011 10:55 pm whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

And I think this could be just the beginning of a much larger upswing.It is beginning to look as if the world may be able to get the coronavirus outbreak under control with vaccines by the middle of next year. Such a development would be hugely positive for stocks and the global economy.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…What’s more, governments around the world are planning massive stimulus programmes as they recover from the crisis. I reckon these twin tailwinds of vaccines and economic stimulus could send stocks surging higher in 2021. As such, I’ve been eyeing up some potential investments to buy for 2021. Here are a couple of my favourites, which I believe have the potential to double in the near term. UK shares on offer One play on the economic stimulus measures I have been considering is Ukrainian iron ore producer Ferrexpo.Iron ore prices have already started to increase over the past couple of months as traders have begun to anticipate increased demand for the commodity. Ferrexpo is set to benefit significantly if City expectations are anything to go by. Analysts have already hiked their earnings estimates for the company this year by 100% since April. I believe further growth in 2021 could see the stock achieve significant total returns for its investors. Other UK shares I am considering for 2021 include System1 Group and RELX.RELX is a global provider of information and analytics for professional and business customers across industries. This section of the company has continued to see steady demand for its services in 2020. Unfortunately, the operation also runs exhibitions. This part of the business hasn’t been so lucky. RELX has had to smash jobs as demand for exhibition services has slumped. Still, I’m optimistic that when exhibitions return, the group can use its size to grab market share, which may put it on a strong growth trajectory. System1, meanwhile, has made a handful of mistakes over the past few years, which have caused investors to sell the shares. Nevertheless, the organisation is a leader in artificial intelligence and behavioural analysis. Growing demand for these services could help the business instigate a recovery over the next few years. Growth potentialI’ve been watching two UK shares closely that seem to have benefited from the pandemic. These are Mr Kipling owner Premier Foods and Reach. Formerly known as Trinity Mirror, Reach has seen a significant decline in revenues for its print publications during 2020. Luckily, rising digital sales have compensated for some of these losses. I think the additional cash flow from the digital business will provide the company with additional capital to drive growth in the years ahead. The same goes for Premier Foods. A boom in sales during the pandemic has allowed the firm to pay off a large chunk of its debt, dramatically improving the company’s balance sheet. I reckon the corporation’s newfound financial strength could help underpin growth in the medium term.  Image source: Getty Images Rupert Hargreaves owns no share mentioned.

Image source: Getty Images Oatly (NASDAQ: OTLY), a plant-based milk specialist, launched on the NASDAQ last week via an initial public offering (IPO). It listed at around $17 a share, with a valuation of $10bn. On the day, the Oatly share price rose above $22, valuing it above $13bn (£9.2bn), but it has since settled back at around $20.Why is oat milk popular?Plant-based foods and drinks are hot properties as individuals commit to making lifestyle changes in a bid to ‘save the planet’. Oat milk scores highly here. It’s apparently slightly better for the environment than almond milk and it uses much less water than other plant-based milks. It also produces less CO2 than cow’s milk. Plus oats require 80% less land to grow than dairy milk needs in the process of raising cows.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…But it’s not only environmental reasons driving oat milk popularity higher. More people are choosing dairy-free diets for health reasons too.Last year in the US, oat milk sales soared 400% to $213m. And many big names are boosting the trend. Oprah Winfrey, Howard Schultz, Jay-Z and Natalie Portman all backed the Oatly deal.Such a pronounced celebrity backing shouldn’t be underestimated. Oprah, Jay-Z and Schultz are all successful investors in their own right and are unlikely to want to risk their reputations on a gimmick. They also have big platforms from which to sing its praises.Oatly has also struck impressive partnerships with Starbucks and Alibaba.From Sweden to New YorkDespite listing in New York, Oatly is based in Sweden. It’s believed to have chosen the US because of its soaring consumption of plant-based and non-dairy foods. Of course, New York listings tend to be higher-profile too. The company has long been ahead of the game as it launched in Sweden in the 1990s. But its popularity soared after debuting in the US in 2016. It now makes yogurt and ice cream too.The company intends to use the proceeds from its IPO to expand its production facilities. This includes a large UK factory where it also sees a clear growth opportunity. This factory will have the capacity to produce 300m litres of oat milk annually and will create more than 200 jobs.Shareholder risksBut the future may not be all rosy. Competition from big food manufacturers and supermarkets is intensifying. And while Oatly has made heavy investments in its expansion and marketing initiatives, it’s losing money. Despite being established for 25 years it’s still unprofitable.Although I like the product, I do wonder if it’s cashing in on a fad. My concern is that oat milk may well go out of favour as quickly as it arrived.Personally, I think a $10bn plus market cap is very high. I can make oat milk cheaply at home in a blender and Oatly cartons are expensive. Nevertheless, I do occasionally buy it and so do an increasing number of shoppers. But for now, I’m quite happy to watch its progress from the sidelines.I think Oatly is far from a bargain share and I’m not tempted to add it to my Stocks and Shares ISA just yet.

New Zealand v France: The Preview

first_imgnot for featured France: Huget; Planté, Fritz, Fofana, Médard; Lopez, Machenaud; Domingo, Szarzewski, Ducalcon, Vahaamahina, Maestri, Dusautoir (c), Ouedraogo, Picamoles.Reps: Guirado, Debaty, Kotze, Flanquart, Nyanga, Doussain, Michalak, Mermoz. Fly guy: Lopez will start at 10The XV unveiled by Philippe Saint-Andre for Saturday’s first Test in Auckland also trusts in youth. The two half-backs are both 24 and while Maxime Machenaud will be winning his ninth cap, Bordeaux fly-half Camille Lopez will be making his debut. So will winger Adrien Planté, who moved from Perpignan to Racing Metro this month, while 21-year-old second-row Sébastien Vahaamahina makes only his second start for his country.On the bench Saint-Andre has chosen Alexandre Flanquart, the 23-year-old Stade Francais lock, and Daniel Kotze, the South-African born Clermont prop. Both are uncapped, unlike Jean-Marc Doussain, the Toulouse scrum-half of whom great things are expected. Doussain has five minutes of international rugby under his belt, the 22-year-old having come on during the dying stages of the 2011 World Cup final against the All Blacks.Doussain was on the losing side on that occasion, and the form book suggests he won’t be tasting victory on Saturday. But in the long term, France stand to win from their tour to New Zealand while the home nations’ finest are gallivanting across Australia.New Zealand v France, Saturday 8 June, 8.35am (BST), Auckland. Live on Sky Sports 2  Last meeting: France and New Zealand will face each other for the first time since the 2011 World Cup finalBy Gavin MortimerHERE’S A curious stat for you. In the professional age, every Six Nations championship following a Lions tour has been won by the French. In 1998 they clinched the Grand Slam while the home nations were still basking in the glory of beating the Springboks the previous summer; four years later France repeated the feat nine months after the Lions trip Down Under. A clean sweep eluded Les Bleus in 2006 – a shock 20-16 defeat to Scotland on the opening weekend their only reverse in winning the title) but in 2010 France had another Grand Slam to celebrate.Call up: Corbisiero is flying to Oz from ArgentinaIt could all be a coincidence, or it could be point to the fact that France, more than any other Six Nations side, reaps the benefit from a Lions tour. For fun though a Lions tour is, it has a detrimental effect on the fortunes of the four nations involved. True, Scotland are in South Africa with an almost full-strength squad, but Wales have taken a B team to Japan and likewise Ireland to North America. Stuart Lancaster’s England are getting a more meaningful test in Argentina, even without eight of their number, but the call-up of prop Alex Corbisiero can’t have down well with the English. Sure, Lancaster made all the right noises, saying “all the England players and management couldn’t be more pleased for him to get this opportunity…after he missed the Six Nations through injury”.But can Lancaster really have been cock-a-hoop at the call-up? When fit, Corbisiero is arguably the best prop in England, a player vital to Lancaster’s 2015 World Cup plans. A couple of brutal Tests in Argentina would have been an important step in Corbisiero’s rehabilitation after six months out of international rugby with a knee injury; instead, he’s off to Oz to do what exactly? Play in a midweek match here or there, against a front row not fit to clean the boots of the average Argentine tight forward.There’s a lot of drivel talked about the Lions, about how it’s the pinnacle of any British or Irish player’s career. Maybe for an Irishman or Scotsman, who realistically will never get their hands on the World Cup, but for an Englishman? Trevor Woodman was never a Lion, but the England prop did win the World Cup in 2003. If Corbisiero was given the choice of playing a Lions Test against the Wallabies or lifting the Webb Ellis Cup in 2015, I wonder which he would choose.But back to the French, who are just about to play the first of three Tests against the All Blacks. The last time France toured New Zealand was the summer of 2009, when the Lions were losing to South Africa, and they stunned their hosts by winning the first Test 27-22. They nearly clinched the two-Test series the following week in Wellington, going down 14-10 in galeforce conditions.It was a tour that made the names of a several young Frenchmen – Louis Picamoles, Maxime Medard, Mathieu Bastareaud, Fulgence Ouedraogo and Francois Trinh-Duc – players who would go on to win the Grand Slam for France the following year and take them to the World Cup final in 2011.

Rugby Rant: Keep the Six Nations free-to-air

first_img Granted, he was being mischievous, as is his right as financial custodian of the RBS 6 Nations, but CEO John Feehan blasted open a hornet’s nest with a double-barrel shotgun when he intimated he’d be open to subscription TV offers when the championship’s existing deal with the BBC comes to an end, in 2017.Now call me a traditionalist but in my book there is a certain moral duty to keep the Six Nations on terrestrial television for the betterment of the game. Elite-level rugby should be available to inspire all.If we are to truly push the game beyond its traditional heartlands, youngsters from all social backgrounds should be able to watch superstars like Leigh Halfpenny, Chris Robshaw, Stuart Hogg, Paul O’Connell and Thierry Dusautoir cutting a dash on the field, with packed-out crowds providing a colourful backdrop. Free-to-air allows folk of all ages to marvel at the jewel in the northern hemisphere rugby crown over seven weeks, immersing themselves in the tribal, visceral drama that unfolds before them.

Compare that to the 0.9m Sky Sports audience for the game between England and New Zealand in November and you have a clear indication of the gulf in the number of ‘eyeballs’ watching the action. Terrestrial coverage puts the game on the front and back pages – note how much attention George North’s concussion garnered and the positive progress that followed it.There’s also the money aspect; while the organisation would arguably earn more if Sky Sports and BT Sport entered the bidding, they’re not exactly scrabbling behind the sofa for coppers, with almost £1.3bn in revenues taken over a World Cup cycle. The olive branch is that, as a Category B sporting event, games would have to be shown on terrestrial TV on a time delay but seriously, who could resist peeking on social media, badgering a friend or heading for the pub for a live Six Nations fix?

Education remains priority amid General Seminary faculty departures

first_img Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL October 2, 2014 at 9:04 pm Father Webber,I concur. This slow deterioration of the worship/prayer life at General came to a head under the misguided leadership of this ‘posterboy’ of careerism in the Episcopal Church is simply unacceptable.Go with God.Father Anthony C. Dinoto, GTS ’99 October 2, 2014 at 12:31 am After posting my query I read the article at the NY Times, which was somewhat illuminating:“Seeking Dean’s Firing, Professors End Up Jobless,” by Sharon Otterman, Oct 1, 2014http://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/02/nyregion/labor-dispute-leaves-professors-jobless.htmlI wanted to share the information in case it is helpful to others. [Episcopal News Service] The board of trustees’ executive committee for General Theological Seminary in New York has “voted with great regret to accept the resignations” of eight full-time professors who say “the working environment that the Dean and President has created has become unsustainable.”The board said its decision came “after much prayer and deliberation and after consulting our legal council.” The trustees also said that the primary concern of the seminary “continues to be the education and formation of our students.”A conflict between the dean and some members of faculty at the nearly 200-year-old seminary was made public late last week when e-mails from the departing professors to students were circulated.Nowhere in those e-mails did the eight say they were resigning and at least one of the professors, Andrew Irving, said in a subsequent e-mail that “we wish to underline that we have not resigned. Our letters did not say that we would resign. We requested meetings with the board.”The 37-member board, many of whom met via conference call on Sept. 29 to discuss the conflict, said in a statement released the next day that they had reached their decision “with heavy hearts,” but agreed that “following months of internal divisions around the future direction of General Seminary” it was the “best path forward in educating our students and shaping them into leaders of the church.”The board said that the seminary is willing to meet with any former faculty member about the possibility of reconsidering his or her position.The eight faculty members said they would not teach, attend meetings, or participate in common worship in the Chapel of the Good Shepherd until “pressing issues” at the seminary were addressed.After the trustees made their decision, the Very Rev. Kurt Dunkle, who became dean and president in July 2013, said in a Sept. 29 e-mail to students: “Prayer is the most powerful response any of us can make at this point. Please pray.”Dunkle and the remaining faculty, the board said, “are working on the best ways to continue teaching and advising and to assure all that we will continue to provide quality education and formation with the least amount of interruption possible.”The board’s statement notes that the school’s New York location “affords us access to a wide range of resources, and we shall be drawing upon those resources to address any needs created by these resignations.”Professors Joshua Davis, Mitties DeChamplain, Deirdre Good, David Hurd, Andrew Irving, Andrew Kadel, Amy Lamborn and Patrick Malloy said in their Sept. 26 e-mail to students that they were not going to teach, attend meetings, or participate in common worship until “pressing issues” at the seminary were addressed. They said that “despite many attempts at dialogue in the past year – including conversations facilitated by a professional external facilitator – the situation has deteriorated to such an extent that we have reached an impasse.”The professors said that they had communicated what they called “dire circumstances” to the board of trustees and said that their “work stoppage” could be ended immediately if the board would commit to meeting with them.But the board said in its statement that some of those demands for action were “not possible under the governing structure of the Seminary.”Dunkle, a former lawyer and a 2004 graduate of GTS, e-mailed the seminary community on the morning of Sept. 29 saying that the principal concern is the welfare of the students and acknowledging that worship is central to GTS.In a further email on Sept. 30, as the board’s statement was pending, Dunkle confirmed that about half of the classes would continue uninterrupted. “As we go through this together, remember that all our hope on God is founded,” he added. “It’s not just a hymn, but a guiding reminder of our fundamental truth. Prayer, either alone or together, is the most effective way to access God. Please remember to continue to pray for all those here and not here.”The departing professors expressed their view that Dunkle “has repeatedly shown that he is unable to articulate sensitively and theologically the issues that are essential to the thriving of the Body of Christ in its great diversity. Moreover his failure to collaborate, or to respond to our concerns when articulated has resulted in a climate that many of us find to be fraught with conflict, fear, and anxiety.”They mentioned that there had been “a number of very serious incidents and patterns of behavior which have over time caused faculty, students, and staff to feel intimidated, profoundly disrespected, excluded, devalued, and helpless … Our concerns about these behaviors and their consequences have been dismissed by the Dean. We find that the Dean’s unwillingness to take responsibility for the damage that these ways of acting and speaking have caused is deeply problematic.”The board of trustees said in its Sept. 30 statement that it is conducting an internal investigation into the allegations of statements made by Dunkle.The General Theological Seminary was founded in 1817 in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City as the first theological seminary of the Episcopal Church.As with many theological institutions, GTS has faced economic pressures following the global financial crisis leading to the sale of some of its property in order to eliminate debt and balance its budget. There was no indication from the various statements and correspondence that the seminary’s financial issues had in any way contributed to the present conflict.The 10 Episcopal seminaries in the U.S. have very few official ties to the Episcopal Church, beyond General Convention’s authority to elect six of the GTS trustees.Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori will visit the school on the morning of Oct. 1. She will visit an 8:30 a.m. class, attend chapel and then “be present on the Close until 11:30 a.m. for your own contact with her,” Dunkle said in his first Sept. 30 e-mail to students.“The Church is counting on us,” the board concluded in its statement. “This week Dean Dunkle and the remaining faculty are working on the best ways to continue teaching and advising and to assure all that we will continue to provide quality education and formation with the least amount of interruption possible.“While we may sometimes disagree, the commitment to our current students is a responsibility that the Board takes seriously. It is for their well-being alone that we came to this resolution, and pray that our decision was the right one.” September 30, 2014 at 5:45 pm I am mystified as to the source and details of this conflict, and the article does nothing to alleviate my confusion. Could someone who understands what is happening at GTS provide a link to a reputable source, or possibly to another article that contains better information? It would be greatly appreciated, as this sounds like a matter that should be better understood by our community. I would like to have at least some idea what in the world is going on.

So, ENS, what is going on the precipitated this? What are the specific charges or allegations? Nothing short of full candor and specifics will suffice. I’m glad that people are engaged in prayer over this issue, but what is it that people are praying for and about?

Yet the eight professors say they did not resign. So, we have a little problem here about what constitutes resignation. Did the Board interpret their pledge of work-stoppage until a conversation with the Board was possible as the equivalent of resignation? That was never stated. I’m not associated with General, and I don’t know how much of the faculty eight members represents, but it surely has to be significant. Why isn’t the Board and the Dean talking with them? October 1, 2014 at 3:03 pm It was spelled incorrectly on the GTS document I read, as “council” instead of “counsel”. It was probably corrected later. September 30, 2014 at 6:35 pm AMEN! Rector Smithfield, NC Sylvia Vasquez says: September 30, 2014 at 4:48 pm I wonder — can a board of trustees, in the State of New York, vote on a decision by telephone conference call? I know that is illegal in many states, and am aware that Standing Committees are not suppose to act that way in the consent to bishop’s elections. It is a curious choice. The letter from the Board indicated that it was the Executive Committee that took this action regarding the faculty. We are starting to get too many conflicting reports. Rev. Terri Brice says: J. Suhar says: Mary Roehrich says: Tags Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC September 30, 2014 at 8:25 pm It’s not ENS’s fault. The point is, there’s not some external issue this is about, like pay or hours. According to the faculty, the issue here is the Dean’s inability to cooperate with anybody on anything. Their statements are that he won’t listen, orders people around, and if anyone ever disagrees with him, he reacts with intimidation and hostility. And the faculty say that even after they’ve had a mediator come in, he’s been just as hostile or more so. There’s more extensive coverage over on Episcopal Cafe, with statements from both sides. The faculty have also put up a site called http://www.safeseminary.org Andrew Irving says: September 30, 2014 at 8:26 pm “after much prayer and deliberation and after consulting our legal council.” Who’s on first? Donn Mitchell says: An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Cathedral Dean Boise, ID September 30, 2014 at 5:01 pm I’m a young adult candidate for the priesthood, looking at potential seminaries and although I was never considering General, I have to admit I certainly won’t be now and wonder if my Bishop would even allow it, given the current circumstances. I’ve been following this situation for several days and the particularities have been quite unsettling. I think this is an example of bad hierarchy in the modern education and Church system. I certainly acknowledge that not all hierarchy is inherently bad, but when folks in leadership positions and positions of power refuse to include valued and respected members of their community/staff in their decision process, deny meetings with them, and then fire them by way of “accepting resignations” that never actually existed– there is a serious abuse of power. My prayer is that those administrators and those on the board would prayerfully re-consider their decision and would remember that Jesus saw His power with/as God as something not to be exploited but humbled and emptied himself, even to death on the cross.

Didn’t it occur to you that you could have expressed your position without bringing up an unproven stereotype? September 30, 2014 at 4:34 pm I regret that the author of this article elected to include no specifics with respect to issues and positions in conflict. That leaves the reader with only the knowledge that this important seminary is in crisis. I do not ask the author to take a position, but I expect journalistic standards that give depth to reporting and value to the reader.Michael PattersonReno, Nevada J. W. McRee says: Comments (62) October 2, 2014 at 3:47 am I agree. In my view as a longtime editor and columnist, this story should have been held until both sides could be represented or the details gleaned in some other fashion. Ofherwise, just state that noone will talk. It’s too easy for rumors to start sounding like facts. September 30, 2014 at 6:45 pm Very troubling and from everything I read here and at the Episcopal Cafe, it certainly appears that Dunkle is acting primarily as a stereotype New York City lawyer rather than as a priest primarily assigned to the care of souls. As someone currently in the discernment process, I can say with certainty that GTS is no longer on my list of possibilities for future ministerial education. Very sad. September 30, 2014 at 5:45 pm You know, I am bloody well sick and tired of people putting good guy/bad guy hats on various factions and taking sides and using students – or students presenting themselves – as helpless victims. Truth is, we do not have enough information at this point to make any judgment. It’s like trying to diagnose why a patient is coughing and you haven’t gotten lab tests or vital signs or listened to lung sounds or gotten an X-ray or scan. It could be a cold or allergies or asthma or pneumonia or COPD or lung cancer, or some combination of causes. But, you won’t know until all the information and data is in and can be analyzed. From where I sit, no one’s hands are clean. After EDS and now GTS, it feels a bit like Israel and Palestine. After a while, it almost makes no difference who is right and who is wrong. Just stop it. Not one more pound of flesh or one more pint of blood. Just behave like grown up – indeed, ones who profess to be Christian – and get on with the work of teaching and doing and modeling the Gospel, please. Elizabeth Sheppard says: Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Rector Collierville, TN September 30, 2014 at 5:47 pm Exactly. Well put September 30, 2014 at 7:50 pm Since when does the gospel not take sides? God loves all equally, yes, but Jesus definitely took sides when it came to how we treat one another. He did, after all, overturn a few tables in the temple. Yes, details are still sketchy, but in time I feel sure there will be a side to take. From what we know now, things aren’t looking good. This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Reggie Harris says: September 30, 2014 at 5:53 pm I’m with Elizabeth. No more taking sides! Much better for us to be all about the notoriously non-side-taking Gospel. Lou Divis says: September 30, 2014 at 9:51 pm Truth takes many forms on all sudes of this situation. GTS has become a “we vs them” situation. Broken trust and communication, forced terminations/resignations, emotional decision makers…… Perhaps God will redeem this struggle by strengthening the future clergy at GTS who will confront these situations in their own ministries more often than we would like to admit. Perhaps this situation will teach us that we should all look at the statistics of what clergy and their vestries/boards do with and to each other in this same painful way. And then the hard work of owning our roles in it, asking for and receiving forgiveness and working towards how God’s kingdom wants differently from us needs to commence. The statistics of these types of conflict in the local, and all parts of, church are rising. What GTS is experiencing is very similar. Read the recent posts from the Episcopal Womens Caucus! God forgive us all. September 30, 2014 at 5:45 pm I don’t know what is more lamentable, the issue (whatever it is), or the news source (not) reporting it.

I am saddened and horrified by the additional negative image of Anglicanism and Christianity your USA seminary standoff situation presents to the world. Your debate may appear local and petty to you, but it has global effects on us, so please consider this. Through the internet, your situation delights anti-Christian terrorist groups in Australia. It provides them with strong evidence to lure Christians away from Churches. Please find a way to address and resolve your differences. Why can’t the irreconcilable parties form two parallel subseminaries within the seminary? Then they could be required to debate their disagreements rigorously and properly, with parallel peer review from both sides, in academic journals, and students would be free to choose their alliance, or move between both points of view as they discern. This would expose personal rivalries and shine a light on the truth.

Heavy hearts? Seriously? The one big gigantic almost impossibly reachable request made by the faculty was to meet with the board. Why couldn’t they meet with the faculty? It seems that there is darkness surrounding this whole event and the fact that EIGHT respected faculty could be cast aside so easily raises serious doubts about the seminary leadership of both the Dean and the Board. And if the seminary is successful in continuing to function without the faculty by hiring from the great pool of talent available in New York those “scab” professors would be “crossing the picket line” and the seminary would continue to bury the real problems that brought it to this disgraceful situation.

Helene Swanson says: Comments are closed. Lou Divis says: September 30, 2014 at 6:44 pm I am not a GTS alum, and I don’t know anything more than what I’ve read in the various articles and letters. I am incredibly saddened, however, by the whole situation. A couple of weeks ago we heard Jesus telling his followers how they were to handle conflict: face to face and in conversation with one another, first one on one and then including others as necessary. From here it would appear that faculty members asked for just this kind of meeting and were refused.Regardless of the issues involved, I can think of no way this position could be defended in a Christian community.Again, last week we were reminded by St. Paul to put on the mind of Christ, who took on the form of a servant. And Jesus himself said at one point, “I am among you as one who serves.” Surely if there were ever a place where this kind of servant leadership is appropriate–and important–it is in a church and in a seminary whose purpose is to train students for this kind of leadership. And not just to teach it, but to model it.I wonder who it is that’s being served here: God? The Gospel? The Church? The students? Egos? Turf? I suspect it’s more than a bit of the last two.Someone commented that they can’t know what to pray for if they don’t know the issues. We don’t need to know the issues to pray for the Holy Spirit to soften and open the hearts of all those involved. We can pray that a way can be found through this darkness and that all parties will humble themselves so they can listen to one another and hold their own opinions lightly, remembering that they are probably right on some matters and wrong on others, as is true of everyone.Lord, have mercy.

Tax relief on donations too often skewed towards wealthy, says report

first_img Tagged with: Charities Aid Foundation Research / statistics tax AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis5 Tax incentives encourage people and businesses to give more to charity but are too often skewed in favour of the wealthy and causes favoured by governments, according to an international study by the Charities Aid Foundation.Donation States, a study of 26 developed and emerging economies, compares the way tax incentives for charitable donations are offered across the world. It reveals that two-in-three countries worldwide offer tax incentives on charitable donations and that people are 12 per cent more likely to have given to charity in the past month if they live in a country that offers tax relief on donations than if they live somewhere which does not.It also found that incentives are widely used by governments to encourage giving to charity, and help drive up both the number of people giving to good causes and the value of donations. In fact, the report shows that the value of tax incentives appears to have a direct impact on how much people give, with more money given when the value of tax incentives increases. Incentives are most effective in nations with higher rates of income tax.However, it warns that regular basic rate taxpayers often have less access to generous incentives than wealthy people and companies, with red tape in some countries creating major barriers to people on moderate incomes taking up tax reliefs.According to the report, corporations tend to get more and bigger tax incentives than individuals, with 77 per cent of countries offering tax incentives to businesses making charitable donations, compared to 66 per cent offering incentives to individuals.The report’s author, CAF international policy manager Adam Pickering, said:“Tax incentives are worth many billions of pounds to good causes worldwide and it is a great thing that there is such a strong international support for charitable giving being incentivised in the tax system. Such incentives are not the biggest motivation for people to give but it is clear that they can be an effective way for governments to encourage people and businesses to support civil society.”The report also lays out a series of recommendations for making tax incentives schemes effective, which includes making incentives for all causes equal, as well as the same for both individuals and companies where possible, and making claiming incentives easy.

The Council is taking a proactive position in relation to securing the optimum outcome for the local authority. It is intended to bring the engagements to a conclusion during the coming months.”At this Monday’s Metropolitan District meeting, he was told that the Council had been advised by legal representatives acting for the owner that the site was sold and was no longer available to the local authority.“The zoning of the land is Open Space and Recreation,” Head of Property Services, Jayne Leahy said.Describing the situation as a “fiasco”, Cllr Leddin said that a site that was to benefit the wider Raheen, Dooradoyle and Mungret community would now form part of the future plans of private developers.A council spokesman explained to the Limerick Post this Wednesday that the site had initially been earmarked as a potential location for a local park.“These plans were superseded by the purchase of the Mungret College site. The council has since opened an award-winning playground and neighbourhood park and has carried out a significant amount of work to improve public access.“The Council is aware that lands in Ballykeefe remain in private ownership and it is important to note that the site is zoned for open space and recreation. The council will continue to ensure that these lands currently zoned open space are developed as an amenity for the local community,” he concluded.Read more politics news here.last_img read more

Shortlisted teams for The easycando Award for e-learningThisaward celebrates HR teams or operational departments which have been innovativein e-learning. The shortlist comprises teams which have demonstrated thate-learning use has exceeded its organisation’s expectations. The judge haspicked entries which incorporated web technology and demonstrated aparticularly innovative approach to learning, including evaluation of itseffectivenessConsigniaE-learning teamWhatthey didHavingno viable environment for the delivery of online learning in December 2000,Consignia implemented an externally hosted e-learning portal and learningmanagement system capable of delivering content to learners via anyInternet-enabled computer. The LMS is integrated with HR systems for themaintenance of records and has capacity beyond Consignia’s own workforce.Thesystem was deployed across all 31 business units through the work of across-functional group of training, IS strategy and purchasing professionals.In a break from the usual method of introducing such initiatives, the teamimmediately set up a number of foundation projects to introduce the basice-learning system rather than running time-consuming pilot projects.Thee-learning system has been created and implemented without the help of a singlecentral sponsor or a dedicated budget. Instead, the team received backing froman internal innovation fund and tapped into further resources which would havebeen spent on piecemeal solutions.Whythey did itAvariety of drivers made it necessary for Consignia to find new ways to delivertraining to staff at all levels. The company has to meet ongoing trainingcommitments while supporting business change initiatives group-wide.Benefitsand achievementsThesolution has the potential to impact on the development of employees,suppliers, customers and partners. “The scale of this project is asignificant achievement,” says Nigel Marsh, e-learning management servicesmanager, “The use of external partners in creating the system has alsochanged the philosophy of resourcing training services within the company.”InJuly 2001 Consignia sought to upgrade 44,000 business PCs and deploy a standardset of software. To support this, the e-learning system provided the equivalentof 29 days of optional training at a cost of £12 per user per year. Withoutthis infrastructure such training would cost upwards of £4.4m and take up tothree years to complete.TheteamNumberin team 6 Number of employees 240,000Scottish EquitableGroup training departmentWhatthey didForthe past 10 years the group training department of Scottish Equitable hasdelivered high-quality learning materials at a competitive cost to its internaltarget audience. As part of this provision the department has developed theiruse of e-learning techniques, from simple programmes through to more complexmultimedia presentations incorporating audio and video material. Whiledelivering principally through localised networks or via CD, a recent projectfor the company’s international division resulted in the department adoptingWeb development toolsto provide training products via the Internet. The companyis one of a handful of organisations to achieve the British Association forOpen Learning accreditation for Materials Development.Thecompany runs two learning centres, each equipped with multimedia PCs andholding over 100 multimedia and CBT courses from a variety of providers. Alibrary offers access to more than 300 books and videos while dedicated staffensure students get the most from the facility. The company is planning to opena third centre in one of their satellite offices.Whythey did itThetraining department works closely with internal customers to ensure thedelivery of appropriate and effective training solutions. In one project, thedepartment is supporting the implementation of a new Common OperatingEnvironment across the company, collaborating with two external trainingproviders. Development and consultation procedures aim to maximise the valuedelivered by training.Benefitsand achievementsIn2000, the learning centres delivered some 20,000 hours of training, saving over£150,000 through avoiding the need for classroom courses. “One of our mainachievements is certainly the BAOL accreditation,” says group trainingmanager, Stephen Leitch, “At the same time the increased usage of internaltraining materials has made a significant contribution to businessobjectives.” The provision of e-learning is acknowledged as an importantfactor in developing and retaining staff and is viewed as a clear competitiveadvantage for the company.TheteamNumberin team 18Staff responsible for 3,500 (5,000 in Aegon Group)Multimedia developer Steve Galway  Learning centre manager Jillian Givan Multimedia developer Rachel Kewley Learning centre administrator Sharon CameronMultimedia developers Tracey McKenzie and Gordon Hamilton Training delivery manager Jo Fielding GartmoreInvestment managementLearning and development teamWhatthey didTeamingup with global e-learning solution provider Wide Learning, the HR learning anddevelopment team produced a series of six online learning modules to meet theneeds of regulatory and compliance training. This project has established OWL –Online with Learning – as a prime delivery channel for training material.Theconcept was sold across the business, emphasising the flexibility of deliveryto the target audience of fund managers. Employees needed just-in-time learningto fit around their workload which can fluctuate according to stock marketmovements. At the same time, the e-learning solution meant those who alreadyhad the requisite knowledge could simply take a test to prove their skills.Thecompliance manager can deliver courses to new starters as and when required andhas access to assessment data which indicates when learning objectives havebeen met.

This has meant ensuringthe company meets compliance requirements in areas such as money laundering,data protection and conflicts of interest. At the same time, the company neededto train 150 people on Information Systems in a two-week timeframe. Both ofthese needs indicated that an online learning system would be an ideal solution.Benefitsand achievementsTherehave been clear cost benefits through the reduction of classroom training.Moreover, since the company has only four permanent staff in the learning anddevelopment team, delivering classroom education to meet the FSA’s standardswould be impossible. “We’re trying to work to create an environment ofopen learning for all,” explains Karen Martin, Gartmore’s learning anddevelopment manager. “We want to move towards a culture of the independentlearner where people have access to the information they need, rather thanrelying on subject matter experts in particular fields.”TheteamNumberin team 5 (plus one specialist from compliance for course content)Staff responsible for 850Senior compliance manager Steve EllkinsAssistant learning & development manager Beverly ClaytonLearning & development administrator Carrie FordAssistant learning & development manager Angela Brier HR developmentmanager David KelhamLearning and development manager Karen MartinJudge’scommentPaul McKinlay, Asda StoresConsigniaNothaving a viable online environment in place did not put this team offdeveloping online training for all levels of their business.

HR needs freeing up to be a major player

first_img Comments are closed. I have just returned from Denver, where I attended the 2002 SHRM ThoughtLeaders conference, an annual retreat hosted by the SHRM Foundation tohighlight the projected hot items for HR professionals over the next fiveyears. I was intrigued by the almost singular focus on the impact of e-HR, and howour profession can and will be shaped by this, and what HR leadership mightlook like going forward. Professor Ed Lawler of the University of Southern California explored whatwill happen to HR after e-HR really arrives. Lawler, professor of managementand organisation at the university’s Marshall School of Business, believesthere are three possible outcomes. HR becomes the subset of an IT-basedorganisation; HR is obliterated by e-HR and is no longer needed or relevant; orHR finally gets the running room and legs necessary to truly move forward – notjust as a business partner, but as a business player. My vote is clearly on the side of HR taking a fully engaged role within anorganisation. This, however, presupposes two things. First, that senior managementin your entity want and embrace this, or at the very least will let you movethis forward; second, that you – as the HR leader – have the skills,competencies and capabilities to manage and deliver this for your business. Cheryl Fields Tyler, vice-president of performance consultancy the ConcoursGroup, proposed an interesting three-phase model of HR, which segmented ourprofession as transactional, partner and player. I liked this, and can happilyadvocate that being a business partner and having a seat at the table is nownecessary, but no longer sufficient. Yes, for those of you who’ve been aspiringto business partner status, I’m saying that’s not enough. So how do you know where you are? On the transactional front, if HR isconsumed with discussions with frontline employees about address changes andinsurance paperwork, then this is all we’ll be perceived to be of value for.Yes, it must be done, but it can’t be perceived as our sole raison d’etre. On the business partner side, if we spend our time with the right people(the business development folks, finance, operations, board members, et al),but only discuss HR issues, then we’ll have achieved partner status at least –but are we really there? I believe, though, that it is not until we spend our days talking withbusiness leaders, board members, external stake (and stock) holders aboutbroader business issues, and effectively deliver the people component ofsolutions, that we will truly be players. The technologies coming with e-HR and various outsourcing mechanisms willclearly liberate HR professionals to do other things. Whether we choose to movethis into more value-added areas of support for our businesses, or allow ouroccasional irrelevancy to take over, is really the next great question. By Lance J.

No new recruits for 50% of final salary pensions

first_imgNo new recruits for 50% of final salary pensionsOn 19 Nov 2002 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. More than half of all final salary pension schemes are now closed to newrecruits or to all members of staff, according to research by the Associationof Consulting Actuaries (ACA). Thirty-five per cent of employers have reviewed their scheme in the pastyear and 32 per cent are ‘currently’ reviewing their pensions arrangements. More than 42 per cent of employers are trying to reduce spending on pensionsand 51 per cent are looking to reduce forward pension liabilities. ACA chairman Gordon Pollock called on the Government’s forthcoming pensionsGreen Paper to bolster occupational pensions by offering employers tax or otherincentives if they provide them to staff. The research finds employer contributions into final salary schemes haveincreased by 14 per cent in the past year, while contributions intooccupational money purchase schemes are not increasing to offset deterioratinginvestment returns. Less than 1 per cent of employees at the firms surveyed have joinedstakeholder schemes. www.aca.org.uk Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more

YESTERYEAR BY PAT SIDES: RIVERFRONT ICE GORGE OF 1936

first_imgRIVERFRONT ICE GORGE OF 1936Submitted by PAT SIDESThe Ohio River has overflowed its banks many times throughout Evansville’s history, with the worst episode occurring in early 1937.Besides flooding, the river has also frozen on numerous occasions, disrupting steamboat traffic for weeks. This photo was taken at Evansville’s riverfront in February 1936, after prolonged sub-zero weather produced an ice gorge that extended from Uniontown, Kentucky, to Rockport, Indiana.When it reached Evansville, people were able to walk across the river, and some boaters were marooned by floes and jams.The wharf boat pictured here, which had been stationed at the riverfront for decades, was damaged beyond repair. After the ice gorge finally broke, the destruction continued when rising water forced some residents to evacuate their homes. FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Governor Wolf Announces Public Awareness Campaign Launch to Help Pennsylvanians Shop for Health Insurance

The media campaign will be announced at a press conference today at 1:30 p.m. in the Capitol Media Center with Acting Insurance Commissioner Jessica Altman.“I’ve made it a priority to do everything in my power to be sure Pennsylvanians have access to affordable health insurance,” Governor Wolf said. “As part of a group governors, I’ve written to leaders in Washington to voice support of bi-partisan health care reform and to reject policies that increase costs for insurance, sabotage health care and cause chaos for Pennsylvanians.“The Affordable Care Act, while not perfect, is allowing more Pennsylvanians access to health care and we want to be sure people using the exchange have all the information they need at the ready to help them make the right choice for them and their families.“That’s why the Insurance Department is launching a media campaign to help educate people on the individual market health insurance options during open enrollment.”The campaign will help fill the void left by Trump Administration cuts to outreach and advertising budgets and was created to ensure that consumers understand changes to the open enrollment period, which is now six weeks shorter than in previous years.The Pennsylvania Insurance Department’s open enrollment tools for consumers, include a plan comparison tool and an Affordable Care Act fact sheet.

Global pension assets top $36trn, rising 6% in 2014 – Towers Watson

first_imgAssets at the end of 2014 accounted for 84% of global GDP, compared with just 54% six years earlier.Global investment director at Towers Watson, Roger Urwin, said the 84% figure still showed poor value for pensioner populations.“While there has been a significant improvement in various pension balance sheets around the world since the financial crisis, many DB pension funds are still in very weak solvency positions,” he said.“The acid test for national pension systems should be to get assets to at least 150% of GDP. If that were combined with an improving recognition of good governance as a return driver and sustainable investing as genuinely value adding, it would put the pensions world in much better shape.”Only the Netherlands (166%) surpassed the 150% figured cited by Urwin, with the US, Switzerland, the UK and Australia joining the Dutch in surpassing the 100% mark.Towers Watson also said the seven largest pensions markets tinkered with asset allocation over the course of 2014, with 42.3% in equities, 30.6% in bonds and 24.8% in alternatives.Allocations to bonds increased over the year, alternatives decreased and equities remained level.Last year’s report highlighted the UK’s overtaking Japan as the second-largest pensions market. Pensions assets across the globe surpassed $36trn (€32trn) in 2014 after a strong surge in Australia, Mexico and Hong Kong offset slower growth in Europe.The average growth rate of pension assets in the 16 largest markets was 8% on an annualised basis between 2004 and 2014, research from Towers Watson showed.Its annual ‘Global Pensions Assets Study’ showed a 6.1% rise in global pension assets, in US dollar terms, with the US, the UK and Japan still accounting for more than 75% of that figure.Rising assets in Mexico (19%), South Africa (13%) and Hong Kong (10%) supported the growth of the overall industry, calculated on an annualised basis in local currency between 2004 and 2014. Source: Towers WatsonPension asset growth over one, five and 10-year periods in local currency termscenter_img Australia, the world’s fourth-largest pensions market, had 11.2% growth.The UK saw 9% growth, the Netherlands 8.2% and Germany 7.4%, while pension assets in Switzerland, France and Ireland grew by 3.1%, 2.5% and 5.6%, respectively, over the 10-year period.Towers Watson said the Netherlands led the way over the course of the year, with more than 20% growth in assets, closely followed by France, Germany and Ireland.Switzerland and the UK both saw more than 10% growth in assets, with Brazil the only major pensions country to experience a fall, with close to negative 5%.#*#*Show Fullscreen*#*#last_img read more

Norway’s oil fund criticises bundled board member voting

first_imgThe cost of doing this was negligible, NBIM said, countering arguments that cost was a reason for gathering board candidates into just one voting item.“In cases were votes are effectively bundled, we may need to vote against the board slate if we have serious concerns with individual board candidates,” NBIM said.Although this ran contrary to usual practice in certain markets, the asset manager said proper recording and reporting of shareholder votes in board elections would support the integrity of the board election process. It outlined many different ways that boards are elected and votes counted across different markets, including the practice of votes being given by show of hands, which allows no vote count by share.“We encourage all stakeholders in the proxy voting chain, including companies and regulators, to contribute to an individual-vote count market standard,” it said.It said that its conclusion was backed by the trend to move away from bundling and towards individual votes in markets such as France, Germany and Spain.Sweden and Finland were among the few remaining advanced markets that had bundled board elections, it said.Bundled elections are also usual practice in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Indonesia, Luxembourg and Turkey, and are common in Greece, Italy, Mexico and South Korea, according to NBIM.The manager has recently changed its approach to engagement, and will now disclose select voting positions ahead of AGMs. Norway’s NOK6.9trn (€812bn) sovereign wealth fund has spoken out against shareholder voting practices that stop asset owners from being able to single out individual company directors when they are unhappy with them.In a paper on the issue, Norges Bank Investment Management (NBIM), which manages the Government Pension Fund Global (GPFG), warned it may vote against whole boards if the system means it cannot express dissatisfaction with an individual member of that board.NBIM said: “We find that the balance of arguments are clearly in favour of a policy requiring each board candidate to be a separate voting item, with individual count at the shareholder meeting and subsequent disclosure of vote statistics.”Board elections were a mechanism for making boards accountable to shareholders, and having an individual vote count of each board member seemed to work well in markets where this was the normal practice, it said.last_img read more

CARICOM to boost entrepreneurial culture among youth

first_imgLocalNews CARICOM to boost entrepreneurial culture among youth by: – October 29, 2011 Share Sharing is caring! Share Sharecenter_img Tweet 11 Views   no discussions BASSETERRE, St Kitts (SKNIS) — Youth and adult experts involved in entrepreneurial development, anti-gang activity, education and youth work throughout the region are in St Kitts and Nevis to craft the CARICOM Secretariat’s “first formal intervention in the area of youth entrepreneurial development.” Representatives from the Barbados and Dominica Youth Business Trusts, Junior Achievement Bahamas, and other agencies have joined with Secretariat organizers as well as officials from the Ministry of Youth Empowerment and the National Entrepreneurial Development Division (NEDD) in St Kitts for the October 26-29 workshop.CARICOM’s deputy programme manager responsible for youth affairs, Dr Heather Johnson said that the sessions are designed to develop a short, practical and hands on training module to equip “at risk” or vulnerable youth with entrepreneurial norms, values and basic business skills.As such, participants are establishing the regional context for youth risk and vulnerability and for youth entrepreneurial development; and reviewing existing training materials. This task is considered extremely important given the findings of the 2010 Report of the CARICOM Commission on Youth Development (CCYD), which noted that youth unemployment levels throughout the region are among the highest in the world.In accepting the report, heads of government declared that youth entrepreneurial development is critical in countering youth unemployment, mitigating drug abuse, crime and violence and fostering economic resilience.“The Community sees its role as institutional strengthening and capacity development, with particular emphasis on forming strategic private/public sector and civil society partnerships as well as facilitating Regional policy coordination and programme harmonization,” Johnson revealed. She thanked the participants for their hard work over the past few days and explained that the module and collaborative process will foster a culture of entrepreneurship as more young people prepare to capitalize on the opportunities of the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME).The CARICOM Youth Entrepreneurship Material Development Workshop is a follow up activity to a Second Chance project that was piloted in the Bahamas, Jamaica and St Kitts and Nevis last year. This project included a skills training and alternative dispute resolution component and was implemented by the CARICOM Youth Ambassador Programme.Caribbean News Nowlast_img read more

Duterte urges Western countries to stop dumping trash in Asia

And I told them that if they do not accept their garbage, then you just drop the container near their ports,” Duterte said./PN The President suggested that regular meetings should be conducted to discourage Western countries from shipping their garbage to Asia. President Rodrigo Duterte urges Western countries to cease from shipping their garbage to developing Asian countries. He says the Philippines, Malaysia and Indonesia have become dumping grounds for hazardous trash from Western countries. CBC.COM MANILA – President Rodrigo Duterte has urged Western countries to cease from shippingtheir garbage to developing Asian countries. “If we are talking about improving the ecology of the place, the environment, then we must take into account what we dump,” Duterte said during the Special Lunch on Sustainable Development at the 35th Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit in Thailand on Monday. “I think, Mr. Chair, this is as good as any other time and any place to tell the other countries, the Western countries, to be more circumspect,” he added. Earlier this year, Duterte forced Canada to take back 69 containers of trash exported to the country during the previous administration ending the years-long diplomatic row with the Canadians. According to Duterte, the Philippines, Malaysia and Indonesia have become dumping grounds for hazardous trash from Western countries. In December 2018, South Korea agreed that it will shoulder the shipping cost to take back 6,500 tons of waste that it had originally dumped in the Philippines.last_img read more

Yaya Toure apologises for ‘inappropriate joke’

first_img “It was meant as a joke however I lacked thorough consideration for the feelings of all the other participants. “That being said I deleted the jokes within minutes and I immediately apologised to all inside the group.” Toure said he wanted to “take full responsibility” for his mistake. “We gather for a good cause and this deviates the focus of the game which is to bring everyone together to help children around the world,” he wrote. “It’s sad to see an inappropriate joke I made attract the attention which should be fully devoted to the beauty of the charity game. “Regardless of the circumstances, I want to take full responsibility. I am a grown man who should not be engaged in such jokes. “I am very sorry for my mistake and wish everyone all the best with Soccer Aid on Sunday in raising awareness and funds for important causes.” Toure sparked a string of complaints from his appalled team-mates, who included several female players as well as celebrities. They called on Soccer Aid and ITV bosses to axe Toure from the game, held annually in support of children’s charity Unicef. Toure, who has three children with wife Gina, deleted the messages and issued an apology but got the boot from Sunday’s game. An insider said: “Everyone at Soccer Aid was disgusted by Yaya’s messages. “There is a WhatsApp group for his team, the World XI, and everyone had been chatting in it. “Without being prompted, Yaya posted a video of a naked woman in a bath. Yaya Toure has apologised for an “inappropriate joke” after offering to hire sex workers for his Soccer Aid team. Married dad Toure, 37, boasted in a WhatsApp group chat that he could bring 19 girls to the side’s five-star hotel in Cheshire, and also posted a pornographic video showing a naked woman in a bath. He was axed from this weekend’s event, and tweeted an apology. “I would like to apologise to everyone involved in Soccer Aid for an inappropriate joke I deeply regret,” he wrote. read also:Yaya Toure axed after offering to hire sex workers for teammates “She was acting in a lewd manner and it was highly inappropriate. “He went on to say he could get 19 women like the one in the video to come to the hotel to the pleasure of those playing the match. “It was absolutely disgraceful and caused a huge amount of distress to some of the people who received the messages. “Soccer Aid is a charity game and is raising money for children. “So to have one of the players, especially one who is supposed to be a professional, making such lewd and gross suggestions is despicable.” Midfielder Yaya, who left Manchester City in 2018, sent the X-rated messages on Thursday night. The WhatsApp group was made up of his team-mates from his World XI side – including ex-Man United star Patrice Evra and female players Julie Fleeting, Lianne Sanderson and Chelcee Grimes. Players and coaches from their England XI opponents were also in the group. A string of complaints were then made to Soccer Aid and ITV, which is broadcasting the match live. The insider added: “The messages turned the stomachs of the women, along with the men. “The atmosphere among both teams had been so good and spirits were high. These messages have really soured the mood. “Julie, Lianne and Chelcee made their feelings clear about how wrong they thought his messages were. They called for Toure to be taken off the team.” After bosses at Unicef and ITV were notified of the content, Yaya was told to delete them. He was then forced to apologise to everyone who received the messages and was warned his place in the squad was in jeopardy. However, feelings were running high during breakfast at the hotel this morning, with many feeling he should get the boot. A source explained: “Within a few minutes his messages had been deleted and Yaya got a mouthful from the bosses. “He repeatedly apologised to them and also said he was sincerely sorry for what he had posted to those in the group.

QPR are expected to have made losses of around £60m last season, when they were promoted from the Championship, which would incur a fine of £40m from the Football League. Harvey insisted the Football League’s rules still applied to the club even if they had been promoted, and said it was theoretically possible they could be refused entry back into the second tier if they did not comply with a December 1 deadline to submit accounts or pay any fine. Asked if exclusion was the ‘nuclear option’, Harvey, speaking at the Soccerex conference in Manchester, said: “Theoretically that is the position, but I would hope there would be resolution long before that option even had to be considered. “We are satisfied we still have the ability under our regulations to charge them for a breach of our rules whilst they were in membership. “The one thing for certain is that most clubs [in the Premier League] will become a Football League club again. “Now QPR will of course be hoping it does not happen for some considerable number of seasons. But the chances are they will need to return to the Football League fold at some point in the future. Certainly, three of the current 20 clubs that are in the Premier League will be in the Football League next season.” Clubs who were in the Championship last season have until December 1 to submit their accounts for last season, with the Football League announcing any action a month later. Clubs who breach the rules – and have losses greater than £8m – and are still in the Championship or League One will have a transfer embargo imposed at least for the January window. Katrien Meire, chief executive of Charlton, said it was vital for the FFP rules that QPR were forced to comply. QPR risk being refused entry back into the Championship if the club refuse to comply with a huge expected fine for breaching financial fair play rules, Football League chief executive Shaun Harvey has warned. She told Press Association Sport: “It’s going to be a legal battle, which nobody is looking for. The Premier League together with the Football League should enforce this. “Everything at UEFA level was enforced, so if this will fail in the English competition then why would the other Championship clubs comply?” Asked if QPR should be excluded for refusing to comply, she said: “You can ban them but that might be worse from a legal perspective. I think they should deduct money from the parachute payments.” All money from FFP fines will go to charity after the Premier League blocked a move to redistribute it among the rest of the Championship. Harvey added: “It was the intention that those clubs that didn’t breach the regulations would share the fines but that principle did not find favour with the Premier League, which was disappointing because that was what the 24 member clubs wanted, but they agreed that the money would be distributed instead to charity.” In May, QPR chairman Tony Fernandes said the club would fight any fine. He said then: “”Will we fight the fine? What do you think? After all we’ve been through, it’s my middle name – ‘Fight It’ Fernandes. “My view has been consistent, that it is very unfair for a club that has been relegated as the wage difference ­between the Premier League and ­Championship is impossible. There should be a time period for clubs to rectify their salaries. “If we were in the Championship in two years with that wage bill it wouldn’t be right. I’m in favour of FFP but it is unfair for a club coming down.” QPR recorded losses of £65.4m during the 2012/13 season and are expected to have lost a similar figure last season. last_img read more

Double Dose! Pistorius Given Jail Sentence Increase

first_imgSouth African athlete Oscar Pistorius has had his jail term for killing his girlfriend, Ms Steenkamp, increased to 13 years and five months.Pistorius was initially handed a five-year prison sentence for manslaughter in 2014 before he was found guilty of murder on appeal in 2015.Prosecutors had insisted that the six-year term given to him for murdering his girlfriend was “shockingly light” but the lower court justified the sentence by citing mitigating circumstances like remorse and rehabilitation.According to the court, those circumstances outweigh factors such as his failure to fire a warning shot.Pistorius, who claimed he shot dead Ms Steenkamp on Valentine’s Day in 2013 after mistaking her for a burglar, has now been handed the minimum 15 years prescribed for murder in South Africa, less time already served.The judgement was delivered by the South African court of Appeal in Bloemfoentein.A spokesman for Ms Steenkamp’s family while speaking on the new development said the ruling “verified there was justice” Related’Disgraced’ Pistorius Sustains Injury From Prison BrawlDecember 12, 2017In “Athletics”Oscar Pistorius Rushed To The HospitalAugust 3, 2017In “Sports”Former Valencia President Soler Handed 2-Year Jail TermOctober 2, 2019In “Spain”last_img read more

Vera&John delivers for JPJ against a tougher UK backdrop

first_img Gamesys maintains UK growth as Euro regulatory headwinds stall performance August 11, 2020 Neil Goulden – JPJ GroupThe governance of London-listed online gambling firm JPJ Group Plc signs off on its latest Q3 2018 trading update (period ending 30 September), confident of delivering on its full-year 2018 corporate expectations.Reporting increased customer activity across its overall portfolio, while maintaining a higher gaming revenue per customer of £99 (10% increase), JPJ records Q3 revenues of £78 million- up 8% on corresponding Q3 2017’s £72 million.Updating investors, JPJ governance points to its European online gambling brand Vera&John as being the ‘stand-out’ asset, reporting a 40% revenue increase to £26 million primarily driven by organic growth.Supported by the benefits of a proprietary technology platform, Vera&John maintains JPJ’s group momentum, during a period in which its flagship Jackpotjoy brand has undertaken an alignment with new UK responsible gambling measures – lowering its revenue and EBITDA earnings.“As part of our commitment to meeting the highest industry standards on responsible gambling, revenues at Jackpotjoy UK have been impacted by the responsible gambling measures we have implemented and the closure of a number of high value accounts,” details JPJ Group Chief Executive Neil Goulden.The Q3 2018 period would see JPJ restructure its organisation, with the company disposing of its social games division for £18 million cash to South Korean games developer BagelCode.  Closing a busy Q3 trading period, JPJ governance declares a group net income of £7.5 million off an adjusted EBITDA of £29 million (Q3 2017: £25 million). The results sees JPJ reverse 2017 comparative losses of £8.2 million.Moving forward, JPJ governance states that it will continue with its international expansion assisted by operations partners Gamesys.“Overall, we remain confident in our outlook for the full year,” added Goulden. “We continue to enjoy a strong association with Gamesys in a relationship which provides mutual benefits and we are also excited by the significant growth opportunities that exist in both existing and new markets, where we are well-placed to take advantage of this promising backdrop.” Gamesys halts UK advertising during lockdown April 23, 2020 Share Related Articles StumbleUpon Submit Enlarged Gamesys returns to UK growth eyeing FTSE250 spot  March 17, 2020 Sharelast_img read more

Natural Gas Regulator Station Proposal Raises Real Estate Concerns

first_imgBy Vincent Ferrer |HOMDEL – The Zoning Board met Wednesday, Oct. 10 at Holmdel’s Town Hall to hear from experts and residents on a controversial utilities development project.Following a failed application nearly two years ago, New Jersey Natural Gas (NJNG) has applied to the Zoning Board for 12 variances to permit a natural gas regulator station at 960 Holmdel Road in the southern part of the township. The station – a 16.51-acre site owned by Holmdel Venture LLC – is currently zoned for office/laboratory use, but more concerning to Holmdel residents is the proximity to residential homes, offices, preserved farmland and the nearby Village School.The greatest point of contention came after a real estate valuation expert for NJNG testified that the station would have no impact on local real estate values. The expert drew this conclusion from a study that observed the impact of similar stations built in Colts Neck, Lincroft, Wall Township, Aberdeen, and Morris County.Residents took issue with the real estate study, which excluded any quantitative effect on more than 400 acres of nearby farmland. The study was limited to “dominant land uses” – specifically residential uses, building lots and office space – and disregarded land encumbered by use restrictions.Anthony Sposaro, Esq., who appeared on behalf of the Casola family and Fox Hollow Vineyards in Holmdel, along with a dozen other residents, voiced their concerns over the study’s accuracy. NJNG was represented by Nancy Skidmore of Connell Foley LLP.Board member Chris Briamonte called attention to the fact the highest valued homes sold in the study were neither in close proximity to a station nor over $1 million. A recently constructed housing development in Holmdel containing several homes valued in excess of $1 million is located near where the station will potentially exist.Briamonte cited a correlation in the study between pricing and proximity to a station. “In most cases, as I get closer to your station, my price gets significantly lower,” he said. Board chairperson Valerie Avrin-Marchiano asked for NJNG to supply the data used in creating the study.Richard Reading, a Princeton-based economic consultant who also appeared on behalf of NJNG, testified that the new station would only cost the town an additional $5 per year.Opponents of the construction say the proposed regulator station is unnecessary given Holmdel’s population and a lack of substantial power outages. Yet NJNG argues the current and future needs of the utilities network, to which Holmdel is just one part, call for an upgraded station.The Holmdel Zoning Board will be voting next month on whether or not to grant the variances.This article was first published in the Oct. 18-24, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

Students Blame Gov’t for ‘Poor Performance’ at WASSCE

first_imgScores of students in their sixth day of writing the West African Senior School Certificate Examinations (WASSCE) on Wednesday, April 9, have blamed government for their poor performance.The saddened students at the William V.S. Tubman High School in Monrovia were spoken for by their president, Samuel Zah of 12-3 class.They claimed this was due to government’s failure to construct and or equip laboratories around the country for use by senior high students.Surrounded by several of his colleagues — who were seen looking gloomy in expectance of poor results for the Physics portion of the exams — Samuel attributed the students’ lackluster performance to several factors he claimed hampered their ability to prepare for the exams.Some of the factors, he said, were students’ inability to comprehend (grasp) the test questions relative to practical laboratory experimentation.“Unlike other high school students, those (students) at Tubman High had no idea on several of the exam’s questions. This is because some of the books being used here are outdated. As a result, the students were left with no other alternative but to write what they could and finish the test,” Mr. Zah complained.“Despite all the difficulties we experienced from our lack of laboratory facilities, coupled with the ‘no teacher syndrome’, we Tubman High students are somewhat hopeful since we believe in the works of God, the Almighty,” he declared.onrovia Consolidated School System (MCSS) Superintendent, A. Benjamin Jacobs, agreed with the students concerning the dire need for  equipped laboratories and trained instructors. He added that it is the responsibility of the MOE’s authorities to provide learning institutions with the requisite environment, which includes buildings and well-equipped laboratories.“We are not prepared to write the WASSCE head-on; this is taking place while we are piloting the WASSCE with the countries that have previously been writing the exams,” he explained.He, too, was hopeful that some of the students would make a successful pass upon completion of the exams.On April 3, almost immediately after the 5,034 students began writing the WASSCE, complaints about the process of writing the test, which they claimed was characterized by difficulties, began to surface.The students’ qualms were owing to what they claimed were inadequate preparations at the various laboratories and libraries at their respective schools.For example, at the Paynesville Community High School (PCS), in the Voker Mission vicinity, the 342 students who sat the test were embittered after they observed that practical questions in Physics were incomprehensible to them due to “poor laboratory preparation.”The Physics, which is being written on the code number 512, was the only Science test administered to students across the 44 testing centers.The WASSCE began on Thursday April 3, and is being administered to 47 schools by the West African Examination Council (WAEC) office in Montserrado, Margibi and Grand Bassa Counties.The students complained that though the laboratory was constructed, it was done without proper materials or teaching staff to conduct the lab preparation.PCS Principal Alphonso Kanboh, agreed with the students’ complaints when he told the Daily Observer, “Our challenges are enormous in the school. Our lack of an equipped laboratory combined with irregularly attended classes by the students themselves all add to the problems.”Kanboh said the school is in need of laboratory materials for the students to do their practical exercises, or else they would be unprepared for the WASSCE.Like MCSS Supt. Jacobs, Principal Kanboh did not give up his hopes of the students passing the test. He predicted that the result may fall between 50-60 percent in favor of the student populace.The Head of the National Office (HNO) of the WAEC in Monrovia, John Y. Gayvolor, Sr., who toured the various testing centers, has reportedly spoken about similar problems regarding students unpreparedness for WASSCE due to lack of laboratory specimens.He, however, urged the students to remain focused and persevere until the end of the tests.Subjects the students are writing throughout the course of the tests include English Language, which will be written in three different parts that include objective and essay questions.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Man deported from US remanded for 2016 New Year’s Day murder

first_imgAfter being deported from the United States, Anthony Bhupdeo was earlier this week remanded to prison for the 2016 New Year’s Day murder of a Cane Grove, East Coast Demerara (ECD) man.The 25-year-old accused of Mon Repos, ECD, is alleged to have been part of a group of people who had fatally beaten to death cane harvester, Deokumar Basdeo. He was arraigned and remanded to prison on Tuesday after being handed over to local authorities last week.Murdered: Deokumar BasdeoBhupdeo had fled to the US on January 2, 2016, one day after the incident, raising suspicions about his involvement in the matter.According to a release from the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Bhupdeo entered the North American country as a visitor, with authorisation to remain until July 2016.In the meantime, however, an arrest warrant was issued on January 7, 2016, in the East Demerara Magisterial District for Bhupdeo for violating Criminal Law (PRO) Act, Ch10:01, Section 53 of the Criminal Code of Guyana (murder).Local authorities, after finding out the man had fled the country, approached their US counterparts for help in arresting the suspect and as such, the US Department of State revoked Bhupdeo’s visa in February 2016.The man then failed to depart the United States in July 2016 as required. In September of that year, the HSI office in Bogota, Colombia, notified the Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) in New York that Bhupdeo might be residing in the New York City metropolitan area, and was being sought in Guyana for murder pursuant to an Interpol Red Notice.The man was subsequently arrested on October 5, 2016 in Woodhaven, New York, and placed on removal proceedings. On July 26, 2017, an immigration Judge ordered that Bhupdeo be removed by an immigration Judge, but appealed that decision to the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA).However, his appeal was dismissed on February 1, 2018, paving the way for Bhupdeo’s deportation to Guyana.Basdeo, a 22-year-old father of one of Sawah Village, Cane Grove, succumbed to his injuries while receiving medical attention at the Georgetown Public Hospital after he was severely beaten and robbed on 2016 New Year’s Day. It was reported that the now dead man attended a traditional event called “Greasy Pole” in the village and subsequently had few drinks at one of the shops.While at the shop, he reportedly got into an argument with a group of men who had travelled into the village to witness the activities. After sometime, the argument ceased and Basdeo left the drinking spot.After he left the shop, the same group of men followed him in their motor car and in the vicinity of “Jango House”, he was pulled into the vehicle where he was severely beaten and relieved of his personal items.After the men were done, they dumped him out of the moving vehicle. He was subsequently found in an unconscious state and rushed to seek medical attention.last_img read more

Ghana offers assistance for incipient local oil & gas sector

first_imgOpposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo presented Ghana’s President Nana Akufo-Addo with a book on Guyana’s history during a courtesy call at the Marriott Hotel on TuesdayThe Republic of Ghana has committed to lending assistance to Guyana as the country prepares for first oil early next year – an offer which the Coalition government and the Opposition both welcomes.This commitment was made by President Nana Akufo-Addo, who is on a two-day visit, first, during a meeting with President David Granger and then again at a luncheon at State House on Tuesday.“We’ve heard the good news too of the recent discoveries of large deposits of oil and gas offshore Guyana. We should explore promptly the possibility of establishing a joint vehicle to assist in the effect and efficient management of oil and gas revenues. With our experiences, I believe Ghana is well equipped to share with you the dos and don’ts in the area, and make available fee-free quality technical assistance to you. Hopefully, the proper management of the new revenue will help finance the spectacular development of Guyana,” President Akufo-Addo stated after speaking about Ghana’s own discoveries.This commitment was reiterated during a subsequent meeting with Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo on Tuesday afternoon.Following the brief engagement, Jagdeo told reporters that he welcomes this announcement, noting the importance of getting first-hand advice.“I said to the (Ghanaian) President, we appreciate his offer to share their experience and some of their technical advice on issues that they’ve had to deal with because it’s important that we have perspective from a practitioner country, developing country and not just from consultants,” he positedThe Opposition Leader added that after enquiring about the impending elections, the Ghanaian Head of State assured that his commitments are beyond political parties.“(He) said that the offer is to Guyana and not to any political party. We expressed our appreciation for that because even if the PPP were to get into office, we would still need to get support from like-minded countries and Ghana has always been a good political partner,” Jagdeo said.Earlier in the day, Director General of the Ministry of the Presidency, Joseph Harmon, had told reporters that this offer of assistance to develop the local oil and gas industry augurs well for Guyana.“What they did was to commit to pay the salaries, the transportation and everything to get the people here and all we will need to do is to find accomodation for them… We’re talking about capabilty building, we’re talking about the capacity of the Department of Energy. Ultiamtely, the President (Granger) has spoken about the establishment of a Minsitry of Energy and so this is really going to require an expanded of talent, of persons and their skills and so on. So these are things that we’re looking at right now,” the government’s spoke’s person posited.Currently, the budding oil and gas industry is being governed by the Department of Energy within the Ministry of the Presidency.Only last month, a large high-level Ghanaian delegation was in Guyana to engage local stakeholders on areas of mutual interest in the oil and gas sector, among others. The more than 15-member team, led by Ghana’s Energy Minister and Deputy Minister of Petroleum Dr. Mohammed Amin Adam, had met with Director of Energy Dr. Mark Bynoe and his team.However, while Ghana is ready to help Guyana, the West African State’s own petroleum industry, still young, has not had the best record with the country failing to use its oil boon to avert the economic crisis and deprivations its people are currently facing.Ghana has been producing and exporting crude oil since 2011 having discovered the resource in commercial quantities back in 2007. However, the country’s financial standing has taken a hit in recent years as prices for its main export products, including oil, have fallen.Nevertheless, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has predicted that Ghana’s economy will grow at 8.8 percent in 2019, pegging the country to be the fastest-growing economy in the world this year.Having made 13 discoveries of commercial oil in the Stabroek Block offshore Guyana, ExxonMobil is preparing to commence production in the first quarter of 2020. The US oil giant has announced an estimated recoverable resource of approximately 5.5 billion oil-equivalent barrels on the Stabroek Block.last_img read more

Saints keeper Boruc heads to hospital for tests after suffering injury at Chelsea

first_imgSouthampton goalkeeper Artur Boruc will undergo tests after suffering an injury during his team’s 3-1 defeat at Chelsea.Boruc was having a good game before going off shortly before the Blues’ second goal at Stamford Bridge.“We do not know [how bad the injury is] at the moment,” said Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino.“He is going to hospital to have X-rays done so that we can know exactly what has happened to his hand or wrist.”Southampton went ahead when Jay Rodriguez scored after only 13 seconds, but Chelsea hit back with second-half goals from Gary Cahill, John Terry and Demba Ba.“We corrected things that needed to be corrected at half-time but then we didn’t concentrate at a corner,” Pochettino added.“Then Boruc got his injury, Chelsea scored again and once they went in front it was very difficult for us.“We’re the youngest team in the Premier League so it is normal that we are in a continual learning process.”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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Sunil Chhetri says team needs time to adapt to new style

first_imgFor a nation starved of success stories in football, being the top star means that one would be hounded by the fans and media.Sunil Chhetri knows it well and after his Sporting Lisbon sojourn, the expectation from the 28-year-old striker has only picked up.No surprise, that in the prematch press conference ahead of India’s opener against Syria in the Nehru Cup, the captain of the team was time and again asked about what difference he could make, especially after his Portugal experience.”I was in Portugal for just 28 days. I don’t think playing with a new team and set-up for such short time can impact your game,” he said.The Delhi boy, who was a part of India’s victorious team in the 2009 edition, said the youngsters in the squad had a very important role to play.”We have six to seven players who are relatively new. They are a good bunch but on this stage, they need to understand their responsibility,” he said.About coach Wim Koevermans’ newly propounded “possession football,” he said it would take some time.”We should take into account the fact that he has with us for only two weeks. We are being told to keep the ball as much as possible. The good thing is that the coach is working with a certain plan and a vision,” he said.Chhetri had high regards for their first match’s opponent Syria. “I have seen their game in the Asian Cup and they are a talented lot,” he said.advertisementlast_img read more

first_imgDelhi Daredevils captain Zaheer Khan lauded India Under-19 batsman Rishabh Pant after the youngster smashed his maiden Indian Premier League half-century to power Delhi to an eight-wicket victory over Gujarat Lions last night. (Rishabh Pant’s maiden fifty sees Delhi crush Gujarat by 8 wickets)Playing only in his third IPL match, 18-year-old Pant stole the limelight as he hit a 40-ball 69 with the help of nine fours and two sixes as the Daredevils chased down the target of 150 with 16 balls to spare in Rajkot.Pant stitched 115 runs for the opening wicket with Quinton de Kock (46) and that took the game away from the Lions who lost their second consecutive match and third in nine games. (Full IPL 2016 Coverage)Zaheer, who is leading Delhi in their best-ever IPL campaign, praised the youngster, saying his knock was special.”Rishabh’s performance was amazing, special. Batting with Quinton would have helped him. Rishabh has taken a leaf out of Quinny’s book,” Zaheer said at the post-match presentation.”You have seen the way Quinton has been going this tournament. He is a match winner,” he added.With Tuesday’s win, the Daredevils move up to the second sport with 10 points in seven matches.Pant, who was brought for INR 1.9 crore by the Daredevils, is one of the highly-rated talents in the U-19 circuit. He played some fantastic knocks at the U-19 World Cup in Bangladesh earlier this year and was praised by India U-19 coach Rahul Dravid, who is also the mentor of the Daredevils.Pant, who was adjudged the Man of the Match, said he relishes playing for Delhi and thanked his captain and coach for their support.advertisement”It is pleasure playing for this team. I am a youngster, and it’s great or receive the support of the captain and coach. It’s great to play under Rahul Dravid,” he said.last_img read more

Milan were embarrassing – Gattuso

first_imgGennaro Gattuso said he laughs when AC Milan are hailed as Serie A challengers and lashed out at his team’s “embarrassing” performance against Cagliari.Gonzalo Higuain’s first Rossoneri goal salvaged a draw at Sardegna Arena on Sunday, cancelling out Joao Pedro’s early opener on the midfielder’s return from a doping ban.Suso forced two saves from Alessio Cragno in the closing stages, while Higuain headed a Diego Laxalt cross wide, but Gattuso was furious at his side’s first-half display.

If you go down 2-0 in this game we cannot recover it anymore.”We did a lot of good, but in those 20 minutes it was a very bad game on the mental level, tactical, over everything.”I did not see any offensive insertion in the first half hour, that’s not good enough. The road is still long, today we went well.”Milan have a game in hand over leaders Juventus but sit eight points off the pace after their opening three fixtures, leading Gattuso to mock pundits who suggest they could rival the Bianconeri.”I laugh when people say that we are the second or third best team,” he added.”Our potential is strong, but if we do not win these games it becomes tough. “I do not want to throw my hands in the air, but there is still a long way to go. If we can learn to manage certain situations we can have an important season.”If you want to be a contender for a championship you cannot afford to have an attitude like this – and this happened last year.”last_img read more

Nurses Support Review of No-User Fees Policy

first_imgThe Nurses Association of Jamaica (NAJ) supporting the Government’s move to review the abolition of user fees in the public health care system. The 2012/2013 LASCO/NAJ Nurse of the Year, Victoria Melhado, made the declaration at a public education forum staged by the NAJ on November 23, at Emancipation Park in New Kingston. Health Minister, Hon. Dr. Fenton Ferguson, informed earlier this year, that two studies are to be undertaken to identify gaps in the system, in areas such as human resource, finance, and the provision of medical, nursing, pharmacy, allied health and auxiliary health services. He said the review process is in keeping with Government’s thrust to strengthen primary health care, and to raise the bar as it relates to the services provided in secondary and tertiary health care facilities. The Health Minister, at the time, stated that while Government wants to offer free health care, it cannot afford to adequately fund quality care across the system. He said that the aim is to come up with a workable alternative, and assured that whatever solution is arrived at, no one would be denied access to health care. Nurse Melhado, in stating her association’s approval of the review, stated that persons in first world countries pay to receive and experience quality health care and so too should Jamaicans. “This is the Nurses Association of Jamaica stance, and a general consensus amongst health care workers, especially those of us who are working at the bedsides of patients each day,” she stated. She said the association is of the opinion that special arrangements can be made for the most vulnerable in the society, such as children and the elderly, but “other persons should acknowledge some amount of social responsibility.” The education forum, under the theme: ‘Against Child Abuse, Incest and Child Trafficking: Let’s Protect Our Children!’, was held in collaboration with the non- government organisation, Be Inspired International, which Nurse Melhado heads. The event sought to bring attention to various issues affecting children and to examine measures in place, and strategies being implemented,to safeguard their rights, in terms of prevention, protection and prosecution.  The event formed part of activities to mark Youth and Parent Month, as well as International Day for the Prevention of Child Abuse, in November.last_img read more

Defamation Act Passed in the House of Representatives

first_imgStory Highlights A key feature of the Bill is the abolition of the distinction between libel and slander. The amended Defamation Act 2013, which seeks to replace the decades-old slander and libel laws, was passed in the House of Representatives on November 5 with bi-partisan support.According to Attorney General, Hon. Patrick Atkinson, who led the debate, a key feature of the Bill is the abolition of the distinction between libel and slander and the establishment of a single cause of action to be known as defamation.It also seeks to abolish the law related to criminal libel and to institute a legal limit of two years within which a lawsuit for defamation can be filed instead of the previous six years.Additionally, the Bill introduces provision for the media not being liable, if it innocently disseminates information from a reputable source, and also replaces the defence of justification with the defence of truth.It also provides provisions for the resolution of disputes without court proceedings, as well as modification for the defence of fair comment.In giving support to the Act, Opposition Spokesperson on National Security and Justice, Delroy Chuck said “there is very little disagreement with the provisions of the Bill”.He noted that the Opposition is in “full support” of the Bill, as it seeks  to remove a historical legacy of criminal libel, where persons could have been charged for making “outrageous” comments.“It has also made it very clear that once a publication is truthful and fair or if it is qualified in certain circumstances that you (the media) have freedom of expression,” he said.Jamaica previously operated with a Libel and Slander Act, which was passed in 1851, and the Defamation Act, which was passed in 1961.The legislation was passed in the Upper House in July. The Bill introduces provision for the media not being liable. The amended Defamation Act 2013 seeks to replace the decades-old slander and libel laws.last_img read more

Province Announces an Independent Investigative Unit

first_imgThe province is developing an independent investigative unit for Nova Scotia’s police system, Justice Minister Ross Landry announced today, Nov. 24. “We are ready to move forward developing a program to bring our justice system to the level of accountability that Nova Scotians have asked for,” said Mr. Landry. “We want a model that Nova Scotians trust and can be proud of. Pride in our justice system and accountability to those we serve is what this government continues to strive for.” The province is improving its supervision of the police system and will develop a more accountable and transparent model to investigating police actions when necessary. “It is our intent to support this new program by funding up to seven positions to ensure a faster process and a team of investigators that can cover all of Nova Scotia,” said Mr. Landry. The province is consulting with the other Atlantic provinces, police agencies and interested groups to develop a model for an Atlantic or a provincial special investigative unit that is arms length from law enforcement agencies. “From a provincial police perspective, this is a step in the right direction,” said Nova Scotia RCMP Chief Superintendent Blair McKnight. “The RCMP is very supportive of enhanced independent review. We look forward to working with the province in developing a model that works for Nova Scotians and ensures a process that is both accountable and transparent.” “Halifax Regional Police fully supports the concept of an independent investigative unit, which will place investigations of serious incidents involving police at arm’s length and provide a board that is independent of police agencies,” said Halifax Regional Police Chief Frank Beazley. “This process will help to ensure impartiality and transparency and bolster the public’s confidence in police.” Many other provinces have independent investigative units that investigate serious incidents, including death or serious injury or public interest concern, resulting from the actions of a police officer, and possibly of correctional officers and sheriffs.last_img read more

UN urges calm amid clashes along EgyptGaza border

6 January 2010The United Nations urged calm by all sides amid recent violence along the border between Egypt and Gaza, including the killing of an Egyptian security officer today, as protests continue over a delayed aid convoy headed for the Gaza Strip. “We are troubled by the violence along the Egypt-Gaza border,” Martin Nesirky, spokesperson for Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, told reporters. “We call for calm and respect for Egyptian sovereignty,” he added.According to media reports, Egyptian security officials said the officer was hit by Palestinian gunfire from across the border. Dozens of protesters were also reportedly hurt during the demonstrations held on Tuesday, called for by Hamas, which took over control of Gaza in June 2007 from the Palestinian Authority.The ongoing Israeli blockade of Gaza, imposed following the Hamas takeover, has limited the amount of goods that can enter the area, triggering a humanitarian crisis for 1.5 million Palestinian inhabitants.UN officials and aid agencies have repeatedly called on Israel to lift the restrictions so that essential supplies, including food, fuel and construction materials, can enter Gaza and to increase freedom of movement in both directions.Just yesterday, Mr. Ban, in a phone call with Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak, expressed appreciation for the fact that limited amounts of glass were now being allowed into Gaza for the repair of homes but pressed for further imports of needed material for reconstruction.“We remain deeply concerned at unsustainable conditions in Gaza and reiterate the need for the re-opening of all crossings as envisaged by the 2005 Agreement on Movement and Access,” stated Mr. Nesirky. read more

Registration cost of new private companies slashed

““I am pleased to inform the House that as part of changes in the fees, we have reduced the fee of registration of a Private Limited Company by as much as Rs 11000,” Bathiudeen told Parliament today. Minister Bathiudeen was making a statement on the increase of Company registration fees by the Registrar of Companies (RoC) as a follow-up to the proposal made in the 2016 Budget. The registration cost of new private companies has been slashed by the Government, Minister of Industry and Commerce Rishad Bathiudeen said.Bathiudeen said that new companies registered in Sri Lanka last year surged by 7 percent while the key state institution in charge of such new company registrations reported an enormous revenue flow to it’s coffers in 2016. The proposal made in Section 419 of the 2016 Budget speech was to review the fees and charges made by different Government entities every three years by all the Chief Accounting Officers and Accounting Officers including Revenue Accounting Officers in the public sector. “I am pleased to inform the House that as part of changes in fees we have reduced the fee of registration of a Private Limited Company under Form 1 by as much as Rs 11000. In that we reduced this fee from Rs 15000.00 to 4000.00 to develop entrepreneurship in Sri Lanka. All fee changes are effective from January 1, 2017,” he said. (Colombo Gazette) read more

Is There Much Hope For The Colts With Jacoby Brissett As QB

The only person who appeared unmoved by the announcement was — unsurprisingly — Bill Belichick.When the rest of the football world recovered, the consensus outlook for the Colts under Brissett wasn’t particularly good. On Sunday, Las Vegas dropped the line on the Colts win total from 9.5 to 6.5 wins. Our FiveThirtyEight Elo system dropped the Colts from a 9.2 win team to 7.5 wins. And as seen on Sunday Night Football, the model developed by Pro Football Focus put the new Colts win total at 7.1, down from nine wins.Looking at Brissett’s performance over his career, it’s easy to see why the math and the markets are bearish on the Colts’ prospects. Indianapolis has a 4-11 record in games Brissett started, and the quarterback has averaged 6.6 yards per attempt over his career, below the league average of 7.2 for the years Brissett has been active. Brissett averaged just more than 200 yards passing per game in his only full season as a starter — a season in which he compiled a QBR of 41.5 — and his career completion percentage is just 59.1 percent. These numbers are not good.We can try to find a silver lining. Completion percentage can sometimes be misleading. Quarterbacks who attempt deeper passes at a higher rate than their peers will see their stat line punished despite the fact that they are helping their team by attempting more valuable throws. If we account for how deep Brissett’s passing attempts have been over his career, however, we find that there aren’t many depths where he’s above league average — although the sample sizes at some depths aren’t large enough for us to conclude this with certainty. It surprised everyone. The news that Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck was retiring Saturday night set Twitter on tilt and was met with skepticism from grizzled beat reporters, boos from the Lucas Oil Stadium crowd and even disbelief from new starting quarterback Jacoby Brissett: Among active QBs, Brisset ranks in the bottom 10 percent in completion percentage over expected. His poor performance is exacerbated by the fact that Brissett also doesn’t attack downfield as often as Luck did. Brissett’s average depth of target — a measure of the distance downfield a quarterback throws — is just 7.2 yards, 1.4 less than Luck’s 8.6. The Colts will need Brissett to target star wideout T.Y. Hilton often to compete offensively, and Hilton’s average depth of target is located well downfield at 12.4 yards. This is a legitimate cause for concern. In 2017 — the only full season Hilton and Brissett have played together — Hilton saw his targets drop to just 109 after 155 in 2016.1With 15 games of Luck.There’s really no sugar-coating the Colts’ 2019 prospects. Indianapolis general manager Chris Ballard has been widely praised for the work he’s done since taking over from Ryan Grigson in 2017. But losing a franchise quarterback when you’ve built a team around the idea that you’re currently in a championship window will stress the skills of even the most competent GMs. Ballard’s options are unpalatable but clear: Try to win now with the team he’s assembled and risk being trapped in a purgatory of mediocrity while the cheap talent ages out of their early contracts, or front-load the pain and tank this season in an attempt to secure a high pick in what looks to be a promising quarterback draft class.In a league where having a franchise quarterback is damn near everything, Brissett’s value to the Colts might be highest as air cover for a front office and coaching staff trying to lose as many games as possible. read more

Grouse shooting cancelled at Balmoral due to shortage of birds

“Although the Duke of Edinburgh doesn’t shoot after having a heart stent fitted several years ago, Prince Charles and Prince Andrew both shoot and the Queen enjoys accompanying the shoot and having a picnic. “The torrential rain has put a stop to fly fishing on the River Dee so there it not much to do up in Balmoral at the moment.” A member of a shooting party holds a hunted grouse on the Rottal Moor on the opening day of the Grouse shooting season on MondayCredit:RUSSELL CHEYNE /REUTERS A member of a shooting party holds a hunted grouse on the Rottal Moor on the opening day of the Grouse shooting season on Monday It has long been one of the highlights of the royals’ calendar but it will be a less Glorious 12th for the Queen this year after grouse shooting was cancelled at Balmoral due to a shortage of birds.The extreme weather and an outbreak of heather beetle, which has decimated food supplies in the Scottish Highlands, has been blamed for the decision to cancel all grouse shooting on Her Majesty’s estate in Aberdeenshire.It comes after many moors in the north of England and the Scottish borders had to abandon planned events last year in order to allow the grouse stocks to recover.But they have not recovered enough at Balmoral, where the Prince of Wales and the Duke of York shoot regularly during the grouse season from August 12 to December 10.A royal source said: “It is a real blow to the royals’ summer holiday plans because grouse shooting is usually the main activity for the royals and their guests. A royal spokeswoman confirmed: “Grouse populations are cyclical and to retain and preserve stock there will be no shooting this year.” Boris Johnson is understood to be preparing to visit the 93-year-old monarch at her private home near Ballater, which is set in 50,000 acres, over the August bank holiday weekend.Dr Adam Smith, Scotland director of the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust, said: “We haven’t finished our grouse counts yet but there are plenty of moors the length and breadth of Scotland reporting a poor breeding year. “There’s a wide range of factors, the heather quality being one. A lot of moors have been affected by heather beetle outbreaks which have affected food supplies for grouse. “It’s also been a funny year of weather in that it was exceptionally dry for the first four months of the year and then latterly, appallingly wet. We’d started out with some hope and cautioned last year against over shooting but the situation hasn’t turned itself around enough in Scotland.”The shortage of grouse last year was the worst in over a decade, with half of grouse shoots across England and Wales cancelling their entire 2018 shooting programmes.Last year, the British Association for Shooting and Conservation admitted there were “no guarantees shooting will resume last year” after extreme weather was compounded by reported high numbers of parasites contributing to the deaths of grouse chicks. read more

Do This to Prevent Cybercrime and Save Your Business from Disaster

first_img Not long ago, I heard FBI Director James Comey say, “There are two kinds of big companies in the United States. There are those who’ve been hacked … and those who don’t know they’ve been hacked.” I took note and quietly patted myself on the back, knowing I’d taken precautions and thinking we were ahead of the game on this one. But then I got the call every CEO dreads. It was a panicked employee who was about to send a screenshot of something they’d just seen on our intern’s computer. “You have 96 hours to pay a ransom or your data will be permanently locked,” the email read. Related: 3 Lessons From Sony Pictures Cautionary TaleFortunately for us, we had a cyber-incident response plan already in place, and I immediately put the plan into motion. As a result, we prevented calamity. Policy, process and practices were what saved us from an embarrassing and debilitating breach.We got lucky. Putting a number to all of those victimized by cybercrime is difficult — if not impossible — but news headlines ranging from the Home Depot, Apple iCloud and Anthem breaches make it clear: This can happen to anyone.Cybercrime trendsThere’s a new risk every day. As quickly as technology grows and changes, so do the threats. Even if you think you’re not at risk because you don’t store consumer data, realize that hackers may target you to access larger businesses you deal with through portals or electronic data exchanges.Threats are not just consumer data or intellectual property. Everything is interconnected. If hackers access the plans to one component, it may be interchangeable and create vulnerabilities in other processes, divisions, intranets or extranets.Threats aren’t limited to consumer data. Foreign powers and those willing to sell to the highest bidder can cause U.S. businesses to lose a competitive advantage on the global stage anytime a breach occurs.Cybercrime prevention is now considered a cost of doing businessCyber attacks are not a matter of “if” but “when.” Cybercrime needs to be viewed as any other business risk, and the investment in cyber security cannot be negligible. According to a 2014 Hewlett Packard study, the average annualized cost incurred per attack was $12.7 million, with a range of $1.6 million to $61 million. For protection, experts suggest developing a cyber-audit committee with a multifunctional and multidisciplinary plan of action.Related: Why Your Password is Hackerbait Responding to an attack will require action from not only the IT department but from public relations, social media and customer service. A company has a very short window of time in which to inform customers of the breach. Do you know yours?Risks aren’t limited to a particular industry or a specific size of business. The profile of a cyber attacker may vary, but can be associated with organized crime, terrorists, nation states, internal threats or disgruntled employees and ransom attacks.For international businesses, the risks are expanded and may change based on region. An outside risk assessment can provide invaluable insights that an internal team may not be able to provide. Even if your business’s internal data isn’t compromised, social media accounts can be hacked and cause serious damage to your reputation.Even if you have a top-notch cyber security plan in place, human error can create some of the greatest risks for exposure — as in our case, with an intern.Protect yourselfUse long passwords. Do not use the same password for all accountsPut policies in place that require strong passwords, and require new passwords that were not previously used at regular intervalsAvoid the temptation of “free” WiFi and hotspots. These networks aren’t secure and your data can be exposedConsider encrypting all emailsDevelop a cyber-incident response plan that includes your board, legal, IT and managementCybercrime is not a problem we’re going to fix or solve. Businesses have to find a balance between the amount of resources they’re willing or able to invest in security while maintaining effectiveness in all other areas.As Bill Gates said: “Treatment without prevention is simply unsustainable.”Related: Obama Heads to Silicon Valley to Discuss Hacking Threats With CEOs March 19, 2015 Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Register Now » Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. 4 min read Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.last_img read more

A New Wave of HR Technology Is Disrupting the Market

first_img 4 min read Register Now » Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global There’s a pattern in the lifespan of human resources (HR) technology companies of the past two decades: they get gobbled up. The pioneering firms in HR technology from the late 1990’s to early 2000’s were mostly acquired by bigger enterprise companies in need of a few product parts. IBM acquired Kenexa, Oracle bought Taleo and SuccessFactors was acquired by SAP.With those acquisitions, founders and early employees left and innovation died. Then came the Great Recession and all investment ended. Today, industry experts like Sheeroy Desai, CEO at recruiting and HR management platform Gild, think job growth is finally hitting stride. Though some bigger players appear stagnant and still, HR tech companies are growing quickly, as hot, agile startup technologies enter the field.Related: Why You Need to Embrace the Big Data Trend in HR“In the past decade this stagnation has allowed Workday to emerge as a new disrupter,” Desai remarks, “but with almost no real competition even Workday has not brought the level of innovation that is truly needed.”“Almost every current HR function operates under 20th century principles of past practices, efficiency, risk avoidance, legal compliance, and hunch-based people management decisions,” remarks HR thought leader, Dr. John Sullivan. But, today, there is a new set of entrants who are challenging the status quo.These companies are different from their predecessors in HR technology, in that they are founded by fresh-eyed engineers and non-HR practitioners approaching technologies and processes from a consumer perspective. HR tech companies like Zenefits (now valued at $4.5 billion in just two years) in the HR benefits space, Expensify in employee reimbursements, ZenPayroll changing payroll, and Gild in the area of recruiting.Bigger, faster, better.According to the Industry Trends in Human Resources Technology and Service Delivery Survey by Information Services Group (ISG), those HR technologies succeeding are the ones where:They’ve built user interfaces that deliver a consumer-like experience and include mobile and social capabilities.Cloud technology is creating massive economies of scale for HR customers at the same time, reducing IT resource involvement.Real-time workforce visibility and flexibility allow for organizations to respond to changing market conditions.New technologies can be integrated into surrounding business processes.Related: 4 Technologies That Free HR to Work With People Instead of Just Their PaperworkHR tech is,  out of necessity, playing catch-up to marketing and operations technology advancements. Data-driven marketing predictions and decisions are made more quickly from today’s advanced big data collection and interpretation. But old-school, limited HR practitioners don’t have these same decision-making tools. It’s costing companies in employee engagement.“Instant feedback mechanisms can significantly improve engagement and motivation by consistently guiding employees in the right direction,” warns Matt Straz, founder and CEO of Namely.Meanwhile, some are suggesting that advanced predictive analytics may be the future of HR and talent management. That’s where the engineers and data crunchers come in. Better HR technology directly affects them. Think spotty expense reports or desktop-only benefit form completion. Today’s HTML5, social authentication and flat, optimized UI design is an entire toolkit of material to work with to improve legacy systems.Data shows organizations are upgrading to these new capabilities, too. While incumbent companies appear to be missing this wave, and have lost sight of the needs and pressures of their customers, fresh, new customer-engineered technologies are advancing the human resources industry.Related: 5 Ways HR Technology Can Improve Performance Reviews Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.

per cent there is cause for concern as this is leading to agrarian distress Related News Speaking at the foundation day celebrations of the National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (Nabard) on July 12 Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said that there were reasons to smile on the economic front as India remains a bright spot despite the global slowdown He talked about the 7-8 per cent overall growth in hand and the 8-10 per cent growth that is realisable in the near future But he admitted that agriculture remains a concern and promised that as tax revenue goes up an increasing

domestic farm prices of several commodities from rice and corn to sugar and groundnuts Farmers’ incomes have plummeted and many cannot service their loans raising demands for a loan waiver Small and fragmented holdings excessive specialisation and input intensification of agriculture as well as restrictive markets also contribute to the increasing distress What could be the policy solutions A major focus is needed on water for irrigation — both in terms of developing irrigation in a cost-effective manner to drought-proof agriculture but also managing our water resources more efficiently Since the pricing of water and power for irrigation is highly subsidised — at places even free — it is but natural for farmers to go for water-heavy crops like rice and sugarcane wherever they get access to water Both are being produced in excess of domestic requirements India exported 12 million metric tonne of rice in 2014-15 becoming the largest exporter of rice for the third year in a row Sugar is also in plenty but cannot be exported due to low global prices creating a major crisis in the sugar industry of cane arrears touching unprecedented levels of Rs 21000 crore In any case exports of rice and sugar mean exporting billions of cubic meters of scarce water This must be rationalised through innovative policies that can reward farmers for saving water (and power) and diversifying away from water-guzzling crops Can Nabard take up this challenge under its new role as an NIE of the GCF by promoting sustainable and more diversified agriculture It could have a high pay-off Jaitley mentioned that the government is committed to enhancing investment in irrigation to tackle droughts The government has already raised the funding of the Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchai Yojana (PMKSY) to Rs 50000 crore for the next five years Since this programme consolidates the watershed management and accelerated irrigation benefit schemes one will have to wait and see how much more money is really being put into the PMKSY Nevertheless the policy seems to be a step in the right direction But to deliver more crop for every drop of water could Nabard spearhead the promotion of innovative farming practices (such as the system of rice intensification and precision farming) and technologies (like drip and check dams) through its network of NGOs and FPOs This is a worthwhile agenda for Nabard to follow Jaitley also mentioned overhauling the existing crop insurance system to make it more robust and responsive to farmers’ needs and that the government is currently working on this While irrigation will take time to deliver crop insurance can be fixed relatively quickly and it could act as an effective coping strategy to contain farmer distress This is another area where Nabard could chip in On the markets front there is a consensus that we need to organise farmers into groups (FPOs cooperatives or any other form) to create scale and integrate them with commodity value chains For building value chains and ensuring farmers get their due share a lot of market reforms will be needed — from changes in the APMC regime to building infrastructure (rural roads warehouses etc) Nabard is already doing quite a bit of work in this area and could scale up its operations to make sure that farmers get a good remunerative price for their produce Building value chains can also create millions of off-farm jobs within the rural economy But linking FPOs to front-end organised retailers or food processors will be a challenge as both are at a nascent stage and many states do not even allow organised retail The announcement of an e-national market by the government cannot take off unless several of these hurdles are cleared and grading of products introduced from the beginning Thus in brief agrarian distress can be relieved and farmers’ incomes enhanced with better irrigation and water management more diversified agriculture robust science-based crop insurance as well as better access to markets?
