He will  argue we need to build a stronger society to counter the ideology, by doing more to take on non-violent extremism and incentivising communities to integrate more to reduce the risk of radicalisation.  “Like any extreme doctrine, it is subversive,” Cameron will say. “At its furthest end it seeks to destroy nation-states to invent its own barbaric realm. And it often backs violence to achieve this aim… mostly violence against fellow Muslims – who don’t subscribe to its sick worldview.” Cameron will also announce that Louise Casey will lead a review into boosting opportunity and integration to bring Britain together as One Nation.  The review will look at what more government can do to lift the horizons of some of the UK’s most isolated and deprived communities in the UK, and increase opportunity for young people from black and minority ethnic communities so that they can “shape the future by being an active part of our great democracy”.   Express KCS Tags: David Cameron People Terrorism David Cameron sets out five-year plan to fight Islamic extremism in UK Share whatsapplast_img read more

first_imgOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA By Mike Wackett 01/11/2016 Containership owner Seaspan Corporation – the biggest individual creditor of bankrupt Hanjin Shipping – is showing a $202.8m loss on the value of 10 of its panamax vessels in its third-quarter results.The impairment write-down on 10 ships under 5,000 teu pushed Seaspan into a $184m loss for the quarter and a $140m deficit for the nine-month period.Seaspan’s revenues improved to $225m in Q3 from $213m in the same period last year, and for the nine months, revenue was also up, at $665m versus $601m earned in the first nine months of 2015.In its accounts filing yesterday, Seaspan made a brief reference to the Hanjin bankruptcy and said it had stopped recognising revenue on 1 September for the four 10,000 teu containerships it had long-term charter to the South Korean carrier.Seaspan also managed three 10,000 teu ships, on behalf of affiliate GCI, which were chartered out to Hanjin.According to documents released by the Seoul bankruptcy court on 10 October, Seaspan tops the list of Hanjin creditors with claims totalling $41.6m.Seaspan said it had performed an impairment test on its vessels as at 30 September 2016, “due to the continued weakness in current market rates and declines in the vessels’ market values”.Oversupply in the ‘classic panamax’ sector has worsened significantly this year, due to heavy cascading by ocean carriers and the opening of the enlarged Panama Canal in June, making many ships of the size effectively unemployable.According to the latest data from Alphaliner, as of 17 October there were 90 panamax ships seeking fixture, up from 83 two weeks earlier, and most had little or no prospect of finding employment.And for those ships that do manage to obtain charters, daily hire rates have fallen to an all-time low, with, for example, Maersk Line recently securing the 4,294 teu Northern Guild for two months, with the option for another 12, at $4,200 per day. Less than two years ago, this ship might have commanded a daily rate of some $15,000, with options that favoured the shipowner. It follows that the asset value of panamax vessels has plunged by around 60%.The redelivery of Hanjin-operated ships has created further significant pressure on an already depressed charter market and comes at exactly the wrong time of year as carriers endeavour to trim capacity for the winter slack season.Indeed, data from vesselsvalue.com records that Seaspan’s 2011-built 4,526 teu Berlin Bridge currently has a book value of $18.58m and a demolition value of $6.26m. This compares with a valuation of around $51m in May 2015, and approximately $36m at the beginning of this year.Meanwhile, shipowner Global Ship Lease recognised a $29m impairment charge in its third-quarter accounts, while Greek shipowner Danaos Corporation, the second biggest shipowner creditor of Hanjin, has yet to publish its third-quarter results.Elsewhere, Japanese shipping group NYK has decided to take a $1bn vessel impairment hit in its half-year accounts. Alphaliner has suggested that NYK’s action could trigger a massive $35bn write-down on the books of ocean carriers if it was repeated industry-wide.last_img read more

first_img As the Coronavirus spreads across the globe and brings everything almost to a halt, we’re keen to hear from Laois people dotted around the world.How has the Coronavirus effected their daily life? What measures are being taken where they live? Are people doing enough? And would they like to come home?Today we chat with Philip Lalor, a Mountmellick man who was working as a chef in the Valencia region of Spain but who is now in Day 11 of lockdown.Where are you based and what are you working at? I am currently based in the Valencia region in Spain. I am working in the hospitality sector training and working as a chef. It is something I never did before but I am enjoying it.What is the situation like where you are? Currently I am on day 11 of a 30 day lockdown. I am not allowed work. I am not allowed to leave the house only to go to the supermarket, pharmacy or hospital and if you are going to these places it has to be individually keeping a two-metre distance always.Only one person is allowed per car also. To go for a walk, run is out of the question as you will be fined and/or detained for breaching lockdown. I am lucky I have a little balcony to get some air on. As of today there is over 3,000 dead and nearly 50,000 affected.Do you know anyone that has been affected by the Coronavirus?Thankfully I do not. I really hope this won’t happen either but it is a possibility unfortunately.What measures have the authorities taken where you are?The authorities here have and are really doing an amazing job. They have imposed heavy fines and detainment for people who breach lockdown and social distancing. Throughout the day and night police drive around saying on speaker phone “Quadete en casa” – in English stay at home.Do you feel people where you are are taking it seriously enough? I would think yes they are but of course there is always a few that don’t follow rules and put everyone else in danger.How has it impacted your work arrangement? I work with the public so I am not allowed work. As a result I lost my job but the government are making new rules that people who lost their jobs due to Covid-19 will receive 75% of pay and be reinstated when lockdown ends. I hopeAre you happy to stay where you are? Have you considered coming home?I would not risk coming home as I’m in a highly infected area so I would. My parents have asked me but I think it’s best to wait until everything is calmed down. Yes it upsets me but it’s for the best.How are you staying in touch with family and friends? Thankfully the power of social media helps me keep in contact with family and friends. WhatsApp video also with family. It’s great to see them to know they are healthy and well, except for when my dad is cooking an Irish breakfast on a video call and then that’s all I want!Is there any positives that you see coming from this?Yes I think people will appreciate more life itself. I think we all take for granted the little things in life even being able to go for a coffee or something to eat.For all the amazing workers who are working during this pandemic, healthcare workers,  supermarket workers, cleaners, truckers, volunteers I know will be appreciated even more than they already are. Our true heroes. The way the world is showing solidarity to one another I think will bring more close friendships.Of course the earth has taken a well deserved break from pollution. I hope and I think this will continue also.Have you found yourself doing things now that you wouldn’t have previously?In lockdown you have to push yourself to do some activities. Watching TV, cleaning, home exercise seems great but that soon gets tiring. You do have the occasional “get me out of here feeling” but it’s normal. It’s tough.I find myself actually reading books, something I never did or thought I had the patience to do before. I am also writing a lot more including songs and poems. I guess when you are locked away from normal life you start to find a piece of yourself you never knew existed. Who knows what will happen after 30 days.If I could say one more thing it would be that Ireland has a chance to not become China Italy, Spain etc.Please follow the rules and stay at home. Look after friends and family from a distance.  We will get through this, it’s the Irish way.SEE ALSO – Laois Abroad: The Ballickmoyler girl in Cardiff feeling a long way from home Electric Picnic organisers release statement following confirmation of new festival date Pinterest Facebook Home We Are Laois Laois Abroad Laois Abroad: The Mountmellick man in lockdown in Spain We Are LaoisLaois Abroad Laois Abroad: The Mountmellick man in lockdown in Spain WhatsApp By LaoisToday Reporter – 26th March 2020 RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR WhatsApp Twitter Previous articleLaois GAA clubs urged to shut gates after groups spotted ‘kicking around’ on pitchesNext articleMarooned in Melbourne: Laois woman and boyfriend stuck Down Under after spending almost €5,000 on cancelled flights LaoisToday Reporter TAGSMountmellickPhilip LalorSpainValencia Laois Councillor ‘amazed’ at Electric Picnic decision to apply for later date for 2021 festival Facebook Electric Picnic Twitter Bizarre situation as Ben Brennan breaks up Fianna Fáil-Fine Gael arrangement to take Graiguecullen-Portarlington vice-chair role Pinterest News Electric Picnic last_img read more

Keywords Cease trade ordersCompanies Ontario Securities Commission The Ontario Securities Commission extended a cease trade order Wednesday against Chinese shoe manufacturer Zungui Haixi Corp. (TSXV:ZUN) until the end of its investigation into the company. The regulator extended the trading ban after no one from the company appeared before the commission to oppose the order. The OSC originally stopped trading in the shares on the TSX Venture Exchange in September after Ernst & Young LLP suspended an audit of Zungui and advised the company’s audit committee that an independent investigation of financial results was warranted. Commission staff have accused Zungui’s chief executive Yanda Cai and chairman Fengyi Cai of failing to co-operate with the company’s audit committee and special committee. Yanda Cai and Fengyi Cai have also been accused of obstructing an independent investigation by the special committee and failing to co-operate with the commission. The allegations, which will be dealt with at a hearing on Nov. 23, have not been proven. Fengyi Cai owns or controls a 56.8 per cent stake in Zungui. Yanda Cai and Fengyi Cai live in China, while Fengyi Cai also maintains a residence in Hong Kong. The independent directors of the Toronto-listed company resigned in protest earlier this year, along with the firm’s chief financial officer, after they told the regulator they weren’t assured of funding or co-operation for an internal investigation. The troubles come in the wake of allegations about financial irregularities against other companies that operate in China but trade on Canadian stock markets, including tree plantation operator Sino-Forest (TSX:TRE). Zungui Haixi raised $39.8 million in its initial public offering in December 2009 on the TSX Venture Exchange.

This is particularly tough on small dealers, he says, as their fixed costs represent a higher proportion of overall expenses, and their margins are tighter to begin with due to their smaller scale. And, as a result, half of the boutique firms in the industry were losing money on a net basis in mid-2012, he reports. “If these conditions continue much longer, we will undoubtedly see an acceleration of firm closures, amalgamations and acquisitions,” he says, noting that 30-odd small- and mid-sized dealers have disappeared over the four years since the onset of the financial crisis, most due to acquisition. And, the current environment presents a higher barrier to entry, with only about 10 new dealers launching in that time (excluding proprietary and other specialized trading firms). The erosion of small firms doesn’t just dilute competition, it can also have negative consequences for the markets and the economy, Russell warns. He notes that these boutiques often target under-served segments of the market, such as less affluent retail investors, or small businesses. “The demise of the small dealer will limit consumer choice for wealth management services, aggravate the already difficult financing problem for small and mid-sized companies and erode the liquidity of venture and TSX listed shares,” he warns. Preventing that will require efforts from both the small firms themselves, and regulators, Russell suggests. “Executives at small firms must continue to make the needed business adjustments to manage the industry’s higher cost burdens,” he says. “Some business models are just not compatible with these new realities, and managers must recognize the need for critical mass. Remedial measures should include building sufficient business scale through incremental hiring or strategic acquisition, and achieving targeted cost savings.” And, regulators must also try to minimize the compliance burden, he suggests. “The rule-making process must be subject to rigorous cost-benefit analysis, both to prioritize the rule agenda and avoid unintended consequences,” he says. Moreover, he suggests that, “regulators need to work closely with the industry to streamline required compliance procedures and provide the needed flexibility to accommodate different business models, often with limited business scale.” Facebook LinkedIn Twitter James Langton Ontario task force looks to boost industry competition Small, entrepreneurial investment dealers are facing tough times, and both the industry and regulators have a role to play in preventing their extinction, suggests Ian Russell, president and CEO of the Investment Industry Association of Canada (IIAC). In a letter to IIAC members, Russell notes that small firms are under increasing pressure, as markets are undergoing an unprecedented slump; and, at the same time, firms’ fixed costs have “escalated dramatically”, both in terms of the systems needed to service clients, and to comply with regulation.

first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Published: Nov. 16, 2018 On a cloudy fall day, on one of the most beautiful college campuses in the country, a biscuit-colored dog with oversize ears, bushy eyebrows and a compact build sits atop a slab of Colorado pink sandstone, soaking up views of the Flatirons, nearby red-tiled roofs, and dry leaves skittering across manicured lawns.In her dark eyes is a steady gaze that belies the hurdles she has cleared. Abandoned at a shelter with her eight puppies a decade ago, she survived a car crash and a serious hip injury, fought her way through a painful rehabilitation, and escaped euthanasia after rescuers recognized her unflagging spirit.Bell has earned the right to stay home and rest. Instead, she will serve as one of two recruits for CU Boulder’s new student canine therapy program. The program, spearheaded by the Division of Student Affairs’ Counseling and Psychiatric Services (CAPS), launched this fall in time for finals preparation.“We share Bell’s story to inspire and help students who have gone through trauma,” said CAPS Director Monica Ng. “Dogs make people feel secure and safe.”Integrating canines into therapy sessions is one of several new health and wellness initiatives the division is rolling out this year and next to accommodate increased student demand for mental health services, said Jennifer McDuffie, assistant vice chancellor for health and wellness.“We are seeing unprecedented demand for services that can help students navigate the challenges of college life, especially among those who are living away from home for the first time,” McDuffie said. “New students arrive on college campuses today facing pressures that previous generations could not have predicted.”In fact, student anxiety and stress today are more likely to be linked to tech use and the bare-all, always on/always connected culture that has evolved alongside mobile devices. Family crises, health issues, addictions, academic pressures, and worries over the environment, the political landscape and economic disparities can add even more layers of stress to students’ lives.“This is one of the most important issues facing college students today, and we want to support health and wellness of the mind and body so they can achieve their fullest potential,” McDuffie said. “Our goal is to give them the tools they can use now and in the future to succeed in life.”Bell and her canine co-worker Toby, a 2-year-old golden doodle, will work with students who are experiencing anxiety and depression or are overcoming pain and trauma, helping them to share their stories with counselors and peers.Bell’s human companion said the 11-year-old pup is “slowing down a bit, but always seems to recognize when someone could use some comfort.”Toby, who was born in North Carolina, moved to Colorado recently and summited his first 14er not long ago.“He loves being around humans. He is here to remind them how wonderful they are and to make them smile when they are sad,” said his human companion, who is also a CAPS staff member.About 30 percent of American college campuses provide canine therapy to students who—separated from home, hearth and family pets—respond well to the calming effect of soft fur coats, soulful eyes and wagging tails. The medical benefits of human-canine interactions are well-documented, too, with health benefits such as stress reduction and lower blood pressure among them, Ng said.Independently owned therapy dogs have drawn the attention of students in the past. Last fall, Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution kicked off an inaugural Stay and Play Dog Café on Norlin Quad that drew hundreds of students who sat on rugs and visited with pups while learning about conflict resolution.CAPS therapists can request the presence of a canine companion during sessions if a student asks for it and the therapist believes such an interaction would be clinically appropriate.CAPS staff members who volunteer their dogs for canine therapy service are required to fill out an onboarding application showing that their pup has gone through certified obedience training, has had shots (renewable each year) and is hypoallergenic. Dogs must be at least a year old and should have the right personality to work with students, displaying calmness and an ability to adjust easily to new situations or stimuli. While on active duty, they must wear a tag or vest to identify them as therapy dogs.In return for their hard work, Bell and Toby are allowed several play breaks during the day on campus.“Everyone goes through bumps in life, through difficult times, but we don’t have to let that define who we are. Because of what Bell has gone through, she has been able to bring that perspective in, to tell that story,” Ng said. “Sometimes, scars make us more special.” Categories:Mind & BodyCampus Communitylast_img read more

Because in assessing anyone as a guide to anything, integrity must count for a great deal. Ask yourself: In defending principle, how far is this person willing to go? What cost is he willing to pay rather than compromise on what his reasoning tells him is right? What punishment will he accept?Does this sound melodramatic? It’s not. As a younger man, Wells stood up to the government, stood up for his principles under some harrowing circumstances. The context at the time was war and peace.
