(ICM), John Paul Sanchez and Javier Andreas Sanchez, following a hearing in Toronto. Mouth mechanic turned market manipulator Under the settlement, the MDFA terminated ICM’s membership and permanently banned the Sanchez brothers. John Sanchez, the firm’s president and ultimate designated person, was fined $100,000, while Javier Sanchez was fined $50,000.The respondents also agreed to pay $25,000 in costs to the regulator.In the settlement, the respondents admitted to numerous violations of MFDA rules including:failing to properly resolve conflicts of interest when they raised $27.4 million from their clients for a couple of companies they also controlled;failing to comply with due diligence and know your clients obligations when they recommended the investments in those companies to their mutual fund clients; andengaging in unapproved outside business activity.They also admitted to not complying with the terms of a previous settlement with MFDA staff, and failing to co-operate with MFDA compliance exams and enforcement investigations by deleting emails and other electronic data before turning it over to MFDA investigators.In January, ICM agreed to a voluntary suspension as a condition of regulators approving the sale of its client list and the transfer of their accounts to another portfolio manager. That suspension took effect in April.

Pepper Mashers Being Established

first_imgRelatedPepper Mashers Being Established Pepper Mashers Being Established AgricultureFebruary 9, 2009 Advertisements RelatedPepper Mashers Being Establishedcenter_img FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Ministry of Agriculture will be establishing pepper mashers, in an effort to satisfy the increasing demand for mashed hot peppers in the agro-processing trade.Minister of Agriculture, Dr. Christopher Tufton, said the Ministry, through its Agricultural Support Services Project (ASSP) unit, has written a proposal to secure funding for one such facility, which would be operated as a business.“What the ASSP unit has done, is put together a business proposal and we have secured some funding to establish it as a business. It is another stage in the chain, which is to take the primary product, to mash it, to store it and allow the processor, who is catering to the end user, to be able to purchase the mash, and then use it in their production process,” he said.In an interview with JIS News, Dr. Tufton said that the Ministry recently approved contracts for at least two mash facilities. Additionally, he said a large private sector entity, which uses hot pepper sauce to produce its products, is keen on setting up a facility.“Between now and the middle of this year, we will be well advanced to establish at least three mash facilities across the country,” he added.The Minister said the facilities would be supported by the increased production of scotch bonnet and red peppers. Some nine pepper nurseries have been established by the Ministry, as part of its drive to improve the production of pepper and to meet the demand in the agro-processing trade.The nurses are located at Thatch Hill, in White River, St. Ann; Annotto Bay and Clermont, St. Mary; York and Sunny Hill, St. Thomas; Breadnut Valley and Ebony Park, Clarendon; Accompong, St. Elizabeth and Bushy Park, St Catherine.Dr. Tufton said that farmers have been buying the seedlings, as it is easier for them to purchase the plants, than to set up their own nurseries.“This is an integrated approach. We are hoping that by the middle of the year, we will be able to link the primary stages of production, from the germination of the seeds right through to the end user,” the Minister said.

More young Kiwis supported with mental health and addiction services

first_imgMore young Kiwis supported with mental health and addiction services Hon Andrew Little Nearly quarter of a million more young New Zealanders will have access to mental health and addiction support in their communities as the Government’s youth mental health programme gathers pace.New contracts to expand youth-specific services across the Northland, Waitematā and Auckland District Health Board areas have been confirmed, providing services for 240,000 young people.“Youth are at the greatest risk of developing mental health issues because of the rapid changes that occur between the ages of 12 to 24,” Health Minister Andrew Little said during a visit to one of the services in Whangārei today.“We need to wrap support around our rangatahi and ensure they have access to the right kind of help, when and where they need it – that includes embedding services within communities.“We need to work on preventing mental health and addiction issues from developing, and intervening early when challenges start to arise.“We need to be flexible in our approach and make it easy for people to get the help they need.”Across Auckland and Waitematā, Emerge Aotearoa is being funded to expand its EaseUp mobile service based on an assertive outreach model that ensures easy access for rangatahi.In Northland, Te Kaupapa Mahitahi Hauora Papa o Te Raki Trust will expand its He Kakano Ahau service. He Kakano Ahau is an integrated service which, as well as providing mental health and addiction supports, ensures pathways for youth into wider community support, including social services, if it’s needed.“These latest contracts are further evidence that the roll out of youth-specific services is well and truly under way,” Andrew Little said.“We now have contracts for dedicated services to support rangatahi with mild-to-moderate mental health and addiction needs in 13 DHB areas across New Zealand, and there are more to come.”These youth-specific services for Northland and Auckland will cost of $4.6 million over two years, are part of the $455 million programme to increase access to, and choice of, free mental health and addiction services.Youth are a priority within the programme, alongside Māori, Pacific and young Rainbow New Zealanders.The programme also includes an initiative to develop a new frontline mental health and addiction workforce within general practices. As at the end of March, 191 general practices across New Zealand were offering the service.“These services supported more than 9500 people in March, giving them help that was not previously available,” Andrew Little said. /Public Release.

Board of Regents hears from students and faculty on DACA, immigration; reviews budget proposal; approves master’s in higher education

first_imgCategories:AdministrationCampus Community Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Published: Feb. 17, 2017 At its regular meeting on Thursday and Friday at the Boulder campus, the University of Colorado Board of Regents heard from numerous students asking for the board’s support of DACA students in maintaining the confidentiality of FERPA records and the recent CUSG resolution of support for DACA. Two faculty and one student also spoke on other issues, including supporting opposition to the Presidential Executive Order on Immigration restrictions, on urging divestiture of fossil fuel companies from university investments and on increasing graduate student pay. The regents thanked the presenters, with some members of the board providing their personal perspective related to DACA students. The board also approved a new MA degree in higher education and heard a report on the progress of CU’s online effort.2017-18 budget proposalThe board heard a 2017-18 budget proposal from Vice President of Budget and Finance Todd Saliman. The budget projects a modest increase in state funding as well as enrollment growth, and it proposes a 2.5-percent merit pool increase for all campuses and all employee groups. Per the board’s vote last April to approve a tuition guarantee for CU Boulder students, this year’s budget includes a 4.91-percent tuition increase for freshman and transfer students and a 0-percent increase for returning students. The board is expected to vote on tuition and compensation in April and on the full budget in June after the state long bill is passed by the legislature and signed by the governor.New MA in higher educationThe board voted 7 to 0 to approve a new professional graduate degree program in higher education in the CU Boulder School of Education. The program is designed to prepare students to work in several areas, including Higher Education Administration and Student Affairs.Ann Schmiesing, dean of the Graduate School and vice provost for Graduate Affairs, says the MA in higher education is an exciting collaboration between the School of Education and the Division of Student Affairs.“This degree combines the established teaching and research strengths of [the School of] Education with the professional expertise of Student Affairs and responds to strong student and employer demand for master’s-level higher education programs in Colorado and beyond.”Kathy Schultz, dean of the School of Education, says the program will provide students opportunities to participate in two practice-based experiences in higher education institutions in their areas of interest.“We are particularly pleased that this program fills an important need in our region for higher education professionals,” Schultz said. “The program is designed for working professionals and will include online and hybrid courses.”Schultz said the college will reach out to people on campus who are currently working in positions without a master’s degree and to potential students throughout Colorado and across the country who seek to learn with and from the talented faculty in the School of Education.“Our commitment as a school to justice, equity and diversity will be the cornerstone of this program.”CU online education updateCU Boulder Vice Provost and Associate Vice Chancellor for Strategic Initiatives William Kuskin provided a short report on the progress of CU’s online effort and reviewed the strategy going forward with Online Education.Kuskin said the regents have challenged but also inspired the campuses to explore online education.“It is my belief that the campuses have responded to the regents’ charge boldly, strengthening our online offerings, increasing both course number and student credit hours, and developing cutting-edge massive online courses on the Coursera platform,” Kuskin said.“The results, in a word, are a threefold network: We have better networked the campuses in a newfound collaboration, we have built an online interdisciplinary degree that networks together our faculty and our course offerings and, finally, we are using this degree to network our online platform.”Kuskin added that online education both challenges us to reform our teaching but also to revolutionize aspects of our delivery system.In other board newsVice President of Employee and Information Services Kathy Nesbitt presented to the board on progress toward hiring a VP of Diversity to serve the CU system and all campuses. Nesbitt has been working with a consultant to learn more about what is needed from a new VP for Diversity, and the board will receive a report on that work March 3. The board debated a resolution expanding the scope of the consultant’s work, but the vote failed on a 5-3 vote (Regent Carson absent).In the board chair’s report, Regent Irene Griego reported the university has hired the law firm of Cozen O’Connor and its attorneys Leslie Gomez and Gina Maisto-Smith to assist the university with an independent inquiry into events around the eventual resignation of assistant coach Joe Tumpkin. The inquiry will look into what occurred and when, if university policies were violated and whether those policies should be modified to better explain requirements on reporting.While this inquiry is pending, Chancellor DiStefano believed it was appropriate to delay voting on Coach MacIntyre’s contract extension. Chair Griego added: in no way should the chancellor’s decision to wait be viewed as an indication that the Board of Regents has determined that policy was violated or any disciplinary action is warranted.The board authorized Chancellor DiStefano to execute a multi-year employment agreement for Darin Eliot as defensive coordinator of the CU football team. The contract extends through December 31, 2019.All presentations, which contain details about the budget proposal, the new master’s degree and more, are available on Board Docs.last_img read more

India and France to launch solar alliance on opening day of COP21

first_imgIndia and France to launch solar alliance on opening day of COP21Solar alliance first of many anticipated agreements and pledges over the coming two weeks in Paris, which could prove crucial in determining how the globe tackles climate change in the few years. November 30, 2015 Ian Clover Energy Storage Installations Legal Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Share The UN summit on climate change – COP21 – began today in the northeastern Parisian suburb of Le Bourget amid a backdrop colored by a mixture of hope, frustration and fear that this is the best shot the planet has to convince leaders and decision makers to take decisive action on climate change. As thousands of people joined climate marches across the globe on the eve of the summit, those with the real power to effect change – heads of state, business leaders and influential climate scientists – jetted in to Paris to attend the opening day of COP21. And before even the first lunch buffet has been unwrapped, the summit has served up two appetizing morsels of things to come, chiefly the news that France and India are set to lead on an International Solar Alliance aimed at developing affordable solar power for all. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will speak today about his desire to see more than 100 of the world’s solar-rich countries – located mostly in the tropics – to work together to find ways to ensure sustained investment and innovation in solar PV technology and markets. Domestically, Modi has already begun a seismic shift in India’s attitude towards solar power, with the government’s National Solar Mission targeting the installation of 100 GW of solar PV capacity by 2022. However, the PM wishes for this ambition to be replicated across the globe, and has sought assistance and investment from some of the world’s most developed nations to help deliver this goal. One such partner is France, and the French President Francois Hollande will join Modi for today’s launch of the International Solar Alliance. France’s solar PV target has been increased to 10 GW by 2018, having surpassed its original target of 5.4 GW for 2020 (set in 2009) by the end of last year. By 2025, France will seek to have lowered the share of nuclear in its energy mix from 75% to 50%, with renewables poised to in-fill the nuclear shortfall during the next decade, particularly solar, which has been set a target of 12 to 20 GW by 2023, according to Deutsche Bank. “Solar energy is a practical and efficient way to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions,” said a statement issued on Sunday by the Indian government. $20 billion pledge on green energy researchThe early hours of COP21 also brought encouraging news in the field of green energy research, with 19 of the world’s largest carbon-emitting nations – including the U.S., U.K., China, Brazil and India – pledging to double funding for clean energy research to $20 billion over five years. This pledge builds upon a similar initiative led by some of the globe’s most influential business leaders. Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, George Soros and Ratan Tata of Indian firm Tata Power will also announce today a bolstered investment fund designed to help environmental technologies transition from the laboratory to the marketplace. “This announcement should help to send a strong signal that the world is committed to helping to mobilize the resources necessary to ensure countries around the world can deploy clean energy solutions in cost-effective ways in their economies,” said senior White House advisor Brian Deese in a statement. More than 170 countries have submitted their action plans to the COP21 summit, but as things stand the best case scenario provided all goals are hit would still likely see global temperatures rise by more than 2 degrees Celsius by 2050 – a threshold climate scientists agree is imperative the world avoids crossing if it wishes to avoid the worst effects of climate change. However, there is hope that further lobbying can help persuade more of the world’s larger polluters to expand their ambitions and agree to more stringent measures on energy efficiency and a greater adoption of renewable sources such as solar and wind power.

Coronavirus live updates: Fauci says ‘things will get worse as we get into January’

first_imgSamara Heisz/iStockBy MORGAN WINSOR, ERIN SCHUMAKER and EMILY SHAPIRO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now infected more than 88.2 million people worldwide and killed over 1.9 million of them, according to real-time data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University.Here’s how the news is developing Friday. All times Eastern:Jan 08, 10:46 amNYC police commissioner tests positiveNew York City’s police commissioner, Dermot Shea, has tested positive for COVID-19 and is “doing well,” NYPD spokesman Rich Esposito told ABC News. Shea is at home and “running the department remotely,” he said. Esposito said the commissioner regularly attends functions and is in close contact with people all the time.  “He takes extensive precautions, but the COVID rate is increasing in the city,” he said.So far this month, 463 NYPD members have tested positive for COVID-19. As of Thursday, New York City’s seven-day average positivity rate stood at 9.21%.Jan 08, 9:24 amHospitalizations on rise in London, mayor declares ‘major incident’London Mayor Sadiq Khan has declared a “major incident” as the virus’ spread threatens to overwhelm the city’s hospitals.One in 30 Londoners now has COVID-19, the mayor said.The city has 7,034 people currently hospitalized — a 35% increase from the April peak.The number of people in hospitals jumped by 27% from Dec. 30 to Jan. 6, Khan said.The London Ambulance Service is now taking up to 8,000 calls per day, when an average day would bring 5,500 calls.“The stark reality is that we will run out of beds for patients in the next couple of weeks unless the spread of the virus slows down drastically,” Khan said. “We are declaring a major incident because the threat this virus poses to our city is at crisis point. If we do not take immediate action now, our NHS could be overwhelmed and more people will die.” Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Humble Bundle limits charity donations to 15%

first_imgDanielle PartisNews EditorMonday 26th April 2021Share this article Recommend Tweet ShareCompanies in this articleHumble BundleHumble Bundle has unveiled a redesign that will alter how users split their donations.As part of this update, the company will remove sliders that give users the option to flexibly adjust what percentage of the donation goes towards publishers, charities and Humble.The new system will instead feature two static options, a default donation that gives 85% of a donation to publishers, 10% to Humble and 5% to charity. The other ‘Extra to Charity’ option will split the figure so that 15% goes towards the chosen cause instead.

Humble Bundle is also introducing UI changes, making it easier to see what is in each bundle tier. Instead of scrolling through each tier one by one, users can click on separate tabs to view different bundles one at a time.The company’s efforts to fundraise remain strong. Humble raised over $30 million for various charities in 2020, with over $8.1 million of that figure going towards COVID-19 relief.last_img read more
