The pair restated their agencies commitment to working together to improve regulation and the oversight of securities markets, particularly over globally active regulated firms with a presence on both Wall Street and in the City.Lord Turner said: “As regulators, we all now face issues that cross borders and require international co-ordination. It is important that we are able to find common ground in approaching these issues and this continuing dialogue with the SEC forms a key part of this process.”Schapiro said the SEC and FSA were in the process of drafting vital new rules at a time of challenging problems following the recent financial crisis. The FSA is seeking to reform OTC derivatives markets to ensure greater transparency and create a harmonised approach globally. whatsapp Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

The South African lock on Scotland’s radar

first_imgStormers second-row David Meihuizen talks to Gavin Harper about his international options For now, Meihuizen wants to see out his current deal with Stormers and Western Province, especially with the incentive of facing the British & Irish Lions should the tour go ahead this summer.“I want to stay here for now and my dream is to play against the Lions. It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and it would be great to be part of that.”A chance to face the touring Lions would also give Meihuizen a potential shot at one of his heroes.“I always looked up to Victor Matfield – I am not the biggest guy, so I pride myself on my lineout, and he was one of the best in the world, but another guy I’ve always admired is Alun Wyn Jones, so it would be an unbelievable experience if I got to play against him.”Flashback: Springboks lock Victor Matfield in action against the Lions in 2009 (Getty Images)Whether his international future lies in green and gold, or navy blue, Meihuizen knows that he wants to cement himself as one of the greats of his time. “I want people to remember me – I want to create my own legacy and be a role model for kids in the future.”A giant of a man with giant ambitions, David Meihuizen could well wind up towering over the international game for some time to come if his career continues on its lofty trajectory. The South African lock on Scotland’s radarStormers lock David Meihuizen was something of a latecomer to rugby but he is already on Scotland’s radar.The 23-year-old, 6ft 9in lock has enjoyed a rapid rise to the sport, having been a water polo player of some note in his youth. His rugby career began at Paarl Boys’ High School in 2015, where he was catapulted into the first XV.“I didn’t really play rugby at the time, but the coach asked if I wanted to try out (for the first team) and I made it into the squad,” he says. “I decided to play one more year of rugby, and then I was offered a place by Western Province’s academy.”A handful of games for the U19s and a bursary at the University of Cape Town followed. Meihuizen continued to shine on the field and made his Stormers debut last year.“It was daunting at first playing with some of the Springboks guys – I didn’t want to let them down – but the more time that I’ve trained with them and spent with them, it has become easier.”With a Glasgow-born mum and a grandfather from Edinburgh, Scottish Rugby have been in touch about his availability, but Meihuizen is keen to keep his international options open – for the time being at least – with his current focus on playing for the country of his birth.“Obviously the ultimate goal would be to represent the Springboks,” he says. “I spoke to them (Scottish Rugby) about possibly moving to Edinburgh, but I decided that the time wasn’t quite right.“My grandad is from Edinburgh and my mum’s from Glasgow and they’ve always told us of our Scottish heritage, especially my grandad.“I remember once my grandad gave us kilts as a present for Christmas, and when we were really young, I must only have been about four, he let my brother and I watch Braveheart.Anthem time: Scotland’s players line up during last year’s Autumn Nations Cup (SNS Group/Getty Images)“We were scarred for a while after because it’s not the kind of film most young kids watch, but he’s always been really proud of his Scottish roots.“A few of my mates at school used to joke and say that I was destined to play for Scotland.” High rise: David Meihuizen (top right) in action for the Stormers (Getty Images) Can’t get to the shops?

Meihuizen is keen to stress that he wouldn’t see playing for Scotland as a second-best option, saying: “If that is what comes, then I would be very proud to represent Scotland,” he said, while adding the pride may be too much for his grandfather.“I think he might combust if I was to play for Scotland – it could be too much for him to cope with!

Turi Hollis, and set out in the synod agenda, was short and to the point.That simply proposed that this church: Declines to adopt the proposed Anglican Covenant.That’s been replaced by the resolution which says this church:Is unable to adopt the proposed Anglican Covenant due to concerns about aspects of Section 4, but subscribes to Sections 1, 2, and 3 as currently drafted as a useful starting point for consideration of our Anglican understanding of the church.And where the second clause of the proposed motion – as set out in the synod papers – had proposed that this church affirms the commitment of the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia to the life of the Anglican Communion.The resolution passed turns the full stop after ‘Communion’ into a comma, and adds a clause which reads: including the roles and responsibilities of the four Instruments of Communion as they currently operate.The amendments are subtle. And they sparked some subtle debate, too, as to the exact nuances of meaning of the word “subscribes,”  and whether “considers” or “regards” might be better choices.But Archbishop David Moxon, who drove the changes, felt they were necessary to send the right signals, both to enhance the province’s relationship with the wider Communion, and to stay consistent with the resolution passed by the 2010 General Synod which met in Gisborne, which had agreed to the first three sections of the covenant “in principle.”He’d made contact with Fitchett and Hollis a few days before the synod, and they were happy to go with his amendments.Fitchett spoke to his motion. Retold briefly what had become of the proposed covenant as it did the rounds of the Episcopal units – it didn’t travel well – and detailed what was in it.He raised no particular objection to the first three parts, but claimed that section 4, which holds out the possibility of “relational consequences” for provinces deemed to have erred, was another matter.“The stated purpose of the covenant is to enable ‘fuller ecclesial communion’ – it is an interesting concept that one achieves communion by ex-communication.”He claimed Section 4’s “approach to honest difference is contrary to our Anglican understanding of the nature of the Church, to the way of Christ, and to justiceAnglicans, he said, are used to disagreement.“There has always been disagreement in the communion, and in the Church of England from which it grew.“Over time Anglicans progressed from burning those with whom they disagree, to a painfully won acceptance that people of differing belief can live and worship together in one church despite those differences.”The full text of the resolution is here (http://anglicantaonga.org.nz/Features/adopt).

Munster too good for Northampton Saints at Thomond Park

by ,

first_imgSunday Apr 11, 2010 Munster too good for Northampton Saints at Thomond Park Munster will play Biarritz in next months Heineken Cup semi final after the experienced Irish outfit beat Northampton Saints 33-19 at Thomond Park.Doug Howlett scored twice while Paul Warwick and Jean De Villiers scored a try a piece. Jon Clarke scored for Saints as they shot to a 16-13 halftime lead, but some masterful kicking from Ronan OGara eventually kept them out the game.OGara played a crucial role in the win despite not having his best kicking day as he kicked five out of his eight attempts. Munster coach Tony McGahan acknowledged the flyhalfs efforts as he wore down the Saints vigor.“Ronan was fantastic – he was at his best with his game management,” he said. “He controlled everything and that was a big part of our game. We needed him.”British & Irish Lions captain Paul OConnell wasnt available to play as he withdrew shortly before kick off with a groin problem, but the side managed without him.“Relief is my initial reaction, especially after last week’s result. The players were superb. We were very composed,” said McGahan. “The forwards were tremendous as they have been under scrutiny all season. Following the loss of Paul we needed to step up to the mark and we did that. Mick O’Driscoll was excellent coming in for Paul,” he added.ADVERTISEMENT Time: 05:04 Note: Better quality highlights will replace these if possible.

03 numbers ‘the new freephone number by 2010’ says Windsor Telecom

Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving.  247 total views,  5 views today 03 telephone numbers could become the new freephone number from next year, according to a leading telecommunications company.Windsor Telecom made the statement following a recent report from communications regulator Ofcom, which declared that more calls will be made from mobile phones than landlines in 2010.The report found that currently 44.5% of all UK calls are made from mobiles and predicted that this will pass the 50% mark next year. That means by 2010 more people will get a free call by calling an 03 number than by calling an 0800 number.This is because 0800 numbers are free to phone from a landline but can cost up to 20 pence per minute from a mobile phone. 03 numbers however, are included in the free minutes allocation offered by mobile tariffs making them a better option for mobile users. Advertisement Neil Sherring, chief executive of Windsor Telecom, said: “0800 numbers have long been popular with charities and not-for-profit organisations because offering a free call boosts the amount of enquiries and donations they get. Ironically, the increasing usage of mobile phones has meant that freephone numbers aren’t always free anymore. The great thing about 03 numbers is that they are included in mobile users’ free minutes plus they’re cheaper for charities to run than 0800 numbers, so everyone’s a winner”.03 numbers were launched by Ofcom in 2007 to increase ‘certainty, trust and confidence’ in the numbers that consumers use to call organisations. They are ‘non-geographic’ numbers, like 0800 numbers, which enable the charities using them to use various call features with their phones, including phone greeting messages, options menus and caller queues.There is even a range of 03 numbers that are exclusively for charities and public bodies to use; 0300 numbers.03 numbers are now used by many UK charities including Children in Need, Oxfam, Comic Relief and the RSPCA.– Ends –NOTES TO EDITORS:For more information please contact Mark Guy, Marketing & PR Officer at Windsor Telecom on0333 1234 034 or simply reply to this email.About Windsor Telecom:· Windsor Telecom is a leading provider of memorable phone numbers and inbound callsolutions.· Windsor Telecom is officially the UK’s 2nd largest suppliers of 0845 numbers.· Windsor Telecom is the foremost authority on 03 numbers.· Windsor Telecom has Investors in People Status.· Windsor Telecom provide bespoke call plans and services which give customers incredible flexibility and control over their inbound calls, without any technical knowledge.

Milwaukee community, labor protests ICE

PfeiferProtesting multiple Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids in Milwaukee the week of May 25, the labor and immigrant rights organization Voces de la Frontera and its youth arm, Youth Empowered in the Struggle, co-sponsored a 200-person protest outside ICE offices on May 27. Numerous representatives of labor and community organizations throughout Wisconsin participated. Voces reports that at least 22 Latinos/as were detained in Milwaukee by ICE agents during the last week, and some have been deported.“We’re tired of this invasion of our communities,” said Christine Neumann-Ortiz, executive director of Voces de la Frontera, in a May 27 press release. ”Every day our office sees families like those affected by yesterday’s raids who are reeling from these attacks. Often it’s mothers and children left to fend for themselves after a male head of household is detained — and who in many cases are faced with homelessness. Our families are in crisis, and we will fight to protect them.”For updates and information on how to call ICE to demand the release of detainees, visit vdlf.org.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Groups Demand Congress Repeal $40 Billion in Wasteful Oil Subsidies

by ,

Diverse voices from the environmental, veterans, labor, renewable fuels, and social justice communities are challenging Congress to repeal nearly $4 billion a year in wasteful taxpayer subsidies handed to Big Oil and Gas despite the industry’s continued efforts to promote climate science skepticism and avoid any accountability as a leading contributor of carbon pollution. The letter was released on a press call with environmental leaders today; see full text below.Greg Dotson, Vice President for Energy Policy at the Center for American Progress Action Fund: “The U.S. and the rest of the world have taken bold steps in recent years to address the growing threat of climate change, but there is much more we can do. Fortunately, we have clean energy companies that are ready to step up and help deliver the pollution reductions we need while growing the economy. The first thing you do when you are in a hole is stop digging. We know today that we are putting too much carbon pollution into the atmosphere – and we should stop using tax payer dollars to encourage even more.”Stephen Kretzmann, Executive Director of Oil Change USA: “Members of Congress have been a very lucrative investment for the oil industry.  For every $1 they put in in campaign contributions, they get back more than $188 in subsidies, even using these very conservative JCT subsidy figures.  I am sure most Americans wish we could get returns even a fraction that good from our 401k’s.  This has gone on for far too long, it is time now for a Separation of Oil and State”.Brad Woodhouse, President, Americans United for Change: “These tax giveaways serve no useful purpose other than padding oil industry profits. We could send 166,000 kids to college every year with the $4 billion that is instead squandered on Big Oil. Over summer recess, we’re going to demand answers from Republicans in Congress who can’t find the money to address the Zika Virus or Flint water crisis, or repair our crumbling infrastructure, but think Big Oil can’t live without these subsidies.  Even with persistently low oil prices, which dipped below $30 a barrel earlier this year, ExxonMobil still reported nearly $1.8 billion in profits last quarter, and BP over $500 million. It seems even in the worst of times, Big Oil can make tons of money comfortably without a taxpayer handout.  And it seems the only return on taxpayers’ investment is dirty air and 14,000 oil spills every year.”On the call, Senators were called on to support the FAIR Energy Policy Act, legislation sponsored by Senator Brian Schatz (D-HI) that would phase out special tax breaks for fossil fuels on the same schedule as the law Congress passed to phase out the wind production tax credit (PTC).The Call to Action today also came in support of the Democratic Senators who took to the floor this week to condemn ExxonMobil Corp. for spinning a “web of denial” about climate change as part of a profit-protecting scheme to kill any legislative action to address it. Late last year investigative journalists at Inside Climate News and the L.A. Times blew the lid off a major cover-up: Exxon Mobil’s own scientists recognized the burning of fossil fuels was contributing to global warming as early as 1977, and yet the world’s largest oil and gas company went on to fund misinformation campaigns for decades against climate science. The revelations prompted a multi-state investigation by over a dozen state Attorneys General into the climate fraud perpetrated against the public, lawmakers and private investors.“Behind closed doors, Exxon accounted for the environmental impact of climate change in their business plans, but put on a public face that everything was normal,” added Woodhouse. “Worse, for decades Exxon has funneled millions of dollars into front groups like the ACCF to wage misinformation campaigns to discredit climate science and discourage use of cleaner renewable fuels. It’s been a simple but unfortunately effective strategy: 1) Big Oil funds junk science downplaying fossil fuels’ leading role in climate change. 2) Big Oil falsely suggests the jury is not in on climate change when in fact the overwhelming consensus in the legitimate science community says climate change is real, man-made and getting worse.  3) Big Oil’s front groups point to their own bogus studies as reason why Congress does not need to act on climate change.  4) Big Oil throws millions of dollars at Republicans in Congress, who then need little convincing to kill any bill to reduce carbon pollution.  And around and around we go as weather events get more and more severe and ocean levels climb higher and higher.”### SHARE Groups Demand Congress Repeal $40 Billion in Wasteful Oil Subsidies Facebook Twitter Previous articleVilsack on Shortlist for Clinton Vice President PickNext articleMonsanto, BASF, Resume Talks on Acquisition Gary Truittlast_img read more
