Save the bees Policy brief examines ways to help Niagaras bee population

In the world of bee conservation, messy is beautiful. A slightly overgrown lawn, a garden with flowers native to the area, patches of soil, and scatterings of twigs and leaves are pure paradise for these tiny creatures.“The recipe for bees is surprisingly straightforward — provide flowers and nesting habitat, avoid pesticide use and like magic, bees appear and thrive,” Brock University Professor of Biology Miriam Richards says in her policy brief “Promoting Pollinators: Niagara Bees and How to Help Them.”The brief is the latest to come out of Brock’s Niagara Community Observatory (NCO), and was presented in front of a packed house at the University on Tuesday, May 7.Bee populations have been declining in Niagara, mainly because the places where they lived have been paved over or built upon.“Every field that is converted to a new housing development results in the death of thousands of bees and myriad other small creatures,” Richards says in the brief.The good news is that even small-scale efforts to create habitats and food sources for bees helps.Richards recommends a number of measures people can take at the household and societal level, including:Grow vegetables such as squash and pumpkin that produce flowersPlan gardens so there’s always some flowers in bloomLeave patches of open soil, twigs and leaves in the garden so bees can nest and survive through the winterIntegrate some low-growing flowers, such as clover, into lawnsPlant gardens around government buildings with flowers and plants that attract beesEnable local governments to limit the size of mall and business parking lots to provide more ground for beesHealthy, wild bee populations are crucial for the ecosystem. Bees are known as pollinators, which are animals that move from blossom to blossom collecting pollen and redistributing it.That pollen, in turn, fertilizes an ovum in the blossom, enabling the plant to produce seeds and fruits.Richards makes an important distinction between wild bees and honey bees, which were brought to North America during the time of colonialism to make honey for the colonists.“Honey bees are a non-native species that competes with wild bees for access to pollen and nectar resources,” says Richards. “In fact, honey bees are implicated in declines of wild bees, because they compete with wild bees for pollen and nectar resources and may also spread diseases to which wild bees are susceptible.”There are 800 species of bees in Canada and some 20,000 globally. Niagara has 150 species.The largest bee population in Niagara is sweat bees, known for licking human perspiration. Other major species in Niagara include bumble bees, carpenter bees, mining bees and masked or yellow-faced bees.Wild bee populations have been declining worldwide. In addition to habitat loss, the other major cause is poisoning from insecticides.Richards’ Brock Bee Lab has been monitoring bee populations at the Glenridge Quarry Naturalization Site in St. Catharines since 2003 to record the impact of such conservation efforts on bee populations. She and her team have produced a number of studies on the subject.In a recent video, Richards addresses the question: Why do bees live in groups? read more

Mens Basketball No 16 Ohio State battles Syracuse in ACCBig Ten Challenge

Ohio State senior guard C.J. Jackson drives to the basket against Cleveland State in St. John Arena on Nov. 23. Ohio State won 89-62. Credit: Amal Saeed | Assistant Photo EditorOhio State head coach Chris Holtmann knows it can be a painful experience attempting to game plan and execute against Syracuse’s stifling 2-3 zone defense. “It’s like going to the dentist. And not just for cleaning,” Holtmann said. In today’s ever-changing and increasingly unpredictable world, college basketball fans can take solace in one constant: Whether you love it or you detest it, head coach Jim Boeheim and his Syracuse men’s basketball team (3-2) will trot out onto the court in its patented 2-3 zone defense. The main challenge for Holtmann this week: Find areas of vulnerability and put together a game plan that best allows his undefeated (6-0) and No. 16th-ranked Buckeyes to penetrate a suffocating style of play.Projected StartersNo. 16 Ohio State (6-0) G — C.J. Jackson — Senior, 12.7 ppg, 3.8 rpg, 2.8 apgG — Luther Muhammad — Freshman, 9.5 ppg, 2.7 rpg, 2.2 apgF — Kyle Young — Sophomore, 6.8 ppg, 4.8 rpg, 0.8 apgF — Andre Wesson — Junior, 7.5 ppg, 3.5 rpg, 1.5 apgF — Kaleb Wesson — Sophomore, 14.7 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 1.2 apgSyracuse (2-3) G — Tyus Battle – Junior, 17.6 ppg, 2.8 rpg, 2.2 apgF — Oshae Brissett – Sophomore, 14.8 ppg, 8.0 rpg, 1.8 apgG — Jalen Carey – Freshman, 9.4 ppg, 4.0 rpg, 1.0 apgC — Paschal Chukwu – Senior, 5.2 ppg, 4.4 rpg, 0.0 apgF — Elijah Hughes – Junior, 14.8 ppg, 5.0 rpg, 1.2 apgOne option to beat the zone is to shoot over the top of it, requiring Ohio State’s main offensive contributors, such as redshirt senior guard Keyshawn Woods to be sharp in their perimeter shooting on Wednesday night. “As guards and shooters on the wings we have to be ready to shoot no matter what game it is, but especially this game though because there’s going to be a lot of opportunities to make 3s,” Woods said.Woods has plenty of experience playing against Syracuse back in his days in the ACC at Wake Forest, where he went up against the Orange on a number of occasions.He made it clear that this is the game where he wants to finally beat Syracuse. “I mean I’m a competitor and I don’t like losing, and I’ve lost to them three times now and only beat them once, and the game we did beat them I got hurt, so in my eyes, I didn’t beat them,” Woods said. “So that’s why I really want this game.”Option two is to pass the ball into the vacated middle of the zone which generally lies between the foul line and the top of the key. Opposing teams have done well in the past to use this area as their base of operations, forcing Syracuse’s center to make a decision: staying where he is positioned around the basket and allowing the offensive player to get a clean shot off, or stepping out to contest the potential shooter and opening up passing lanes and access to the basket behind him. The offensive player in the middle of the zone can also look to make a pass back out to the perimeter if a teammate finds his way open. “It’s really important, as long as we can get the ball in the middle we will be fine,” Woods said. “If we get it in the middle, we’ll break down the zone because that’s when they really get spread out, and if we move and attack gaps, we’ll have the upper hand.”Offensively, Syracuse boasts three scorers who average double figures per contest.Junior guard Tyus Battle leads the way at 17.6 points per game and is the main offensive weapon for the Orange after deciding last spring to forego entry into the NBA Draft and return to the team for another season. “He’s versatile and very aggressive on offense,” Woods said. “He’s going to get his at the end of the day and he can score at all three levels and we know from the scouting report and I know from playing against him in the ACC that he’s their go to guy, and he’s going to try to get his as much as possible, and we’ve got to maintain him.”Battle is backed up by junior forward Elijah Hughes and sophomore forward Oshae Brissett who both average 14.8 points per game. One area of concern that Holtmann stressed was rebounding. He noted his team’s struggles in that department and how that will be a key component of Wednesday night’s matchup. Brissett and Hughes lead the way for the Orange on the boards, with senior center Paschal Chukwu also being a force around the basket at 7 feet 2 inches tall.Chukwu injured his groin in last week’s game against Colgate and his status for Wednesday night’s matchup is up in the air. If Chukwu can’t go, the Buckeyes will likely get a healthy dose a pair of sophomore forwards in Bourama Sidibe and Marek Dolezaj. Sidibe averages five points and five rebounds per game while Dolezaj averages more than three points a game to go with just over two rebounds per game. Ohio State takes on Syracuse at home at 7:15 p.m. on Wednesday. read more

Sharing stories of migration from one generation to the next

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram It’s been on our radar for some time now that the first generation of Greek migrants to Australia is dwindling. But with the gradual dissipation of a generation also comes the loss of information, knowledge, and stories of hardship, great contribution, and hope.Having recognised this, the clubs behind Hellenism Victoria launched the Spirit of Hellenism Award competition in 2017, and after a positive response have run it for a second year.Open to youth aged 15 to 25, the competition has been designed to encourage a younger generation of Greek Australians, whether born Down Under or newly arrived from abroad, to research, record and present stories of migration by engaging with the people behind the narratives and finding out about their contribution to Australian society, all the while preserving them, and building a bridge from one generation to the next.While participants were given parameters to adhere to, creativity was encouraged, with the option to present their entries in a variety of forms, and entrants embraced the challenge says Olympian Society representative John Vithoulkas.“It’s obviously difficult to tell stories, so to do an investigation and turn it into something creative, which hasn’t been done before can be even harder. Format shouldn’t get in the way of telling a good story, and that’s one thing we’re trying to encourage,” Mr Vithoulkas said.“Entrants went onto all sorts of tangents, which is what we want; we had poetry, stories, biographies, even a little movie,” and added that it was encouraging to see young people’s eagerness to go above and beyond, to do the extra work.Entries were short-listed with the winning entries selected by the sponsors of each award, which Mr Vithoulkas said was a good way of connecting clubs and boards with the younger generation.Senior entrant Alex Vounisios was named winner of the Delphi Bank Spirit of Hellenism award, set to be presented in a branch of the institution, for the interview he conducted with a volunteer at Fronditha Care.The first round of presentations took place at Oakleigh Grammar on Wednesday, with Kyri Derzotis named the Fronditha Spirit of Hellenism winner for his poem on the experiences of a Fronditha volunteer; Evan Koukounaras was awarded the Pammessinian Brotherhood Spirit of Hellenism for his video production on the life of his grandparents; and Angeliki Stamatopoulou was the Olympian Society Spirit of Hellenism winner with a short story of her grandmother’s life.Meanwhile, South Oakleigh College’s Efthymia Delichristou won the Pancretan Association Spirit of Hellenism award for her short story on the life of a Greek migrant, set to be presented at an upcoming school assembly.Each winning entry was awarded $250, donated by the sponsor of each award.With the majority of entries focusing on individual stories of migration, and many involving participants own grandparents, Mr Vithoulkas said it was clear the Spirit of Hellenism is far more than merely a competition for the participants, whose eyes were opened to a different reality, and one very close to home.“I think the kids don’t realise how much the first migrants faced leaving their country; loneliness, fear of the unknown, all those sorts of things that older people probably don’t communicate to their grandkids, and that came through in quite a few; a sense of appreciation for what they went through and that intergenerational connection,” he said.“Everything that gets made is valid and we appreciate being able to read the work of students, but we also hope such a competition can be an example to clubs of new ways of engaging with the Greek community.”To see the entries and find out more about the work and mission of Hellenism Victoria, visit the hellenismvictoria.com web page.last_img read more

Cuba une campagne déradication du moustique de la dengue

first_imgCuba : une campagne d’éradication du moustique de la dengueAujourd’hui, Cuba a annoncé avoir lancé une grande campagne de fumigation destinée à éradiquer le moustique Aedes, vecteur de la dengue. Le ministère de la Santé espère ainsi éviter une épidémie alors que la présence de la maladie a été rapportée dans plusieurs villes de l’île.Cuba lance aujourd’hui une “campagne intensive” de fumigation afin d’éradiquer le moustique Aedes, vecteur de la dengue. En effet, l’insecte a été repéré dans plusieurs villes parmi lesquelles La Havane, capitale de l’île. Cette campagne, annoncée par les responsables du ministère de la Santé, consiste en des fumigations consécutives pendant un mois complet des “zones présentant les plus gros indices de présence” du moustique.  À lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ?Les quinze districts de La Havane sont concernés, a expliqué le vice-ministre de l’Hygiène, Luis Estruch, dans les colonnes du quotidien officiel Granma. La campagne de fumigation concernera également les villes de Pinar del Rio (ouest), Santa Clara (centre), Camagüey, Santiago de Cuba, Bayamo et Guantanamo (sud), ainsi que le port de Mariel, à 45 kilomètres à l’ouest de La Havane. Selon le vice-ministre, il s’agit-là des zones “les plus vulnérables”.Une situation épidémiologique “stable” Le gouvernement appelle également la population à chercher par tous les moyens à éviter la présence de conditions favorables au moustique et en particulier les eaux stagnantes. Selon, la responsable de l’Institut de Médecine tropicale de La Havane, Maria Guadalupe Guzman, la situation épidémiologique de la capitale était “stable” ces deux derniers mois. C’est même “la meilleure depuis cinq ans”, souligne-t-elle alors qu’entre 2001 et 2002, 14.524 cas de dengue avaient été recensés dans l’île, rappelle TV5monde.Pourtant, “l’île n’est pas exempte de risque épidémique”, prévient-elle. En raison des chaleurs estivales et des fortes pluies qui les accompagnent, toutes les conditions sont réunies pour favoriser la reproduction du moustique. Cuba fait partie, avec le Chili et l’Uruguay, des seuls pays d’Amérique latine où la dengue n’est pas endémique. Le 16 août 2011 à 11:18 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Android Apple assure être à lorigine de lOS de Google

first_imgAndroid : Apple assure être à l’origine de l’OS de GoogleEn pleine guerre des brevets contre HTC, Apple affirme être à l’origine d’Android, le système d’exploitation (OS) mobile de Google. La firme à la pomme assure que le créateur d’Android, l’un de ses anciens employés, s’est très largement inspiré de son travail chez Apple pour développer une technologie fondamentale.La bataille judiciaire engagée entre Apple et HTC semble loin d’être terminée. En effet, Apple revendique la paternité d’une technologie primordiale de l’OS mobile du géant de Mountain View développée par l’un de ses anciens employés, Andy Rubin. Ce dernier est le co-fondateur de l’OS Android et le vice-président du département des produits mobiles chez Google. À lire aussiA 17 ans, il tente de hacker Apple pour décrocher un emploiSur son site FOSS Patents, le blogueur Florian Mueller cite la déposition de la firme de Cupertino auprès de l’ITC, l’autorité de régulation du commerce américaine, dans le cadre de sa plainte déposée contre HTC. “Apple affirme – dans une plainte à l’ITC, ce qui signifie qu’Apple a une obligation légale de faire une représentation véridique des faits – que les supérieurs de Rubin (sic) chez Apple étaient les inventeurs du brevet de l’API temps réel et il a travaillé pour eux au même moment où il réalisait cette invention”, explique le blogueur spécialiste des questions de propriété intellectuelle. Cette interface de programmation permet de traiter en temps réel des données transmises en séries. Une technologie dont la firme à la pomme détient le brevet jusqu’en janvier 2019.Si cet argument convainc l’ITC et les juges auxquels reviendra la décision finale, Apple pourrait obtenir l’interdiction d’Android mais aussi d’importants dommages et intérêts. Si une violation délibérée d’un brevet d’Apple devait être caractérisée, la firme à la pomme pourrait récupérer le triple des dommages engendrés par Android. N’ayant jamais travaillé pour HTC, Andy Rubin n’est pas concerné par la bataille judiciaire qu’Apple livre à la firme. Toutefois, cet argument pourrait constituer les bases d’un nouveau procès, contre Google cette fois.Le 5 septembre 2011 à 19:42 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Guardiola insists he wants to coach a National Team

first_imgCatalan manager Pep Guardiola is still thinking that he wants to take on a National Team from any country sometime during his career.Even if we believe that Pep Guardiola cannot feel more fulfilled by his professional career, the Catalan manager is still very keen on someday managing a National Team before he decides to retire from football altogether.The Manchester City boss has repeatedly stated that he has all the intention of someday coaching a national team, but his political stance on the relationship between Spain and Catalonia might be an important obstacle if his intention is to coach the Spanish football team.The manager recently spoke to students at a conference in the University of Liverpool, where he touched on the subject again in front of an audience.This is what Pep Guardiola said about international football: “I would like to be an international manager in a national team. I would like that, yes,” said Pep via Four Four Two.“It will happen because every three days I would like to be involved but a little bit more calm, play more golf, now I don’t have time to play.”“Sooner or later it is going to happen, if I have a chance with an international team, if they come knocking at my door.”Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“You travel. At the ending stages of my football career and after like a manager. It’s incredible. I lived for six months in Mexico and in Qatar as well, an Arabic country.”“As a manager I’ve lived in Germany and nowhere. I learned German when before it was impossible to understand. My family didn’t speak a word of English and now they speak perfectly.”“It’s incredible to travel. I encourage people to do it. You have to move. I encourage my players to do the same.”“Be curious to do something. The football career is too short not to. You will wake up one morning and say ‘wow, it’s over’. Time moves quickly,” he concluded.Guardiola said at the conference at the University of Liverpool on his future: “I would like to be an international manager in a national team.

Clark College fundraising goal smashed

first_imgFive years ago in the thick of the Great Recession, Clark College launched its first major private fundraising campaign as higher education dollars continued to wither away across the state. Now, the campaign — titled Ensuring a Bright Future: Campaign for Clark College — has come to an end. And Lisa Gibert, the president and CEO of the Clark College Foundation, announced Tuesday afternoon that the fundraiser far surpassed everyone’s expectations. “Despite a campaign that ran right down the middle of the Great Recession, I’m proud to inform you that not only did we meet our $20 million goal but we smashed it,” she told a crowd that gathered at the Andersen Fountain on Clark’s campus. “Raising this level of funding at Clark is unprecedented.”In all, the campaign raised $26,593,789, money that will be broken up among a number of key teaching areas and scholarships for years to come. The mark represents the largest sum of private dollars the college has raised in its 81-year history, said Chato Hazelbaker, a spokesman for Clark College. A happy bunch of teachers, staff, students, politicians and donors gathered Tuesday afternoon in the heart of the college’s main campus to hear the news and celebrate the end of the campaign in a small festival-like atmosphere.last_img read more

Source Memo Virtually No Advertisers Will Commit to LongTerm Ad Programs

first_imgAs first reported by FOLIO: this week, financial publisher Source Media is reorganizing its more than 60 magazines into four business groups—banking, capital markets, technology and professional services—and is recasting editorial staffs for each of its individual brands and rolling editors into combined units for each of the four new groups, “pooling” editorial by market. In an 1,830-word memo announcing the reorganization to staffers, CEO Jim Malkin provided a detailed account of the hurdles plaguing the financial services and information publishing industries, and the debt market: I’d like to take some of your time to fill you in on the state of our business. In reading our publications, watching or reading the news or following the political debate, we are seeing a downward business cycle and economic fall off of significant proportions. It is my belief that the earliest this cycle will turn will be by the end of 2009. I am certain that you are all familiar with the current state of the financial services industry, the conditions of the evolving information publishing industry and the state of the debt market. I want to explore in this letter how these national, regional and industry trends impact our company and what we intend to do so that we emerge healthy and robust when this cycle turns.Financial Services Industry Our clients in the financial services industry are getting clobbered. Wall Street lost a record $11.7 billion in 2007 and another $22.4 billion in the first quarter of 2008. Wall Street is expected to cut 25,000 jobs from its September 2007 peak of 188,000 jobs – a 13.4% decline. It is estimated that 74,000 financial services jobs have been cut over the past 12 months.Our clients who advertise to our readers don’t know what they can successfully sell to firms that are unsure of their future. There are fewer industry participants to subscribe to our services and virtually no advertisers who will commit to long-term advertising programs. Information Publishing IndustryWe have talked about the change in readers’ habits in the electronic age. We have talked about the change from print to on-line advertising. Although our on-line advertising has been increasing at a healthy rate and in line with industry averages, print remains the bread and butter of our revenues. It should come as no surprise to you that our print advertising revenues are experiencing a significant fall off this year. Other media and newspaper companies are reporting print advertising to be off by 5% to 25%. SM’s print advertising is off of last year’s levels by 17% or $6.8m. Print based revenue still comprises almost 57% of our total revenue.Debt Market Our debt, which we have been paying down since our acquisition in November 2004, stands at $172m. Despite our healthy “performing loan” status and our low leverage ratio of about 4.5X, our interest costs have increased by 30%, which translates into an additional $4.3m of cash interest payments that we have to pay each year to our lenders.What does this mean to you? It means that the entire enterprise, SM and Accuity, has to be positioned to:A: Establish a structure that can operate more effectively in this environment – more effectively in terms of content creation, product development and sales/marketing execution. B: Take advantage of the cycle when it eventually turns upward (and remember that the entire economy relies on the financial services sector to kick-start the rest of the economy).C: Generate sufficient cash to cover expenses, which now include the additional $4.3m in interest and, crucially, to generate the monies needed to provide funding for growth initiatives. This is the third major down cycle I have managed through. Although it is the most severe, I am confident that the steps we take will see us through this and that we will emerge a stronger and better business. We will be better positioned to support our clients and to serve their needs with integrated solutions that provide value.After extensive discussions with people within our organization and with outside consultants, our Board of Directors has approved our new operating structure and has reaffirmed its desire to grow SourceMedia and Accuity into the future under Investcorp’s ownership. The SM publishing business will be divided into four communities:Banking Banking will now comprise the following groups: American Banker, Banking magazines, the Mortgage Group, the Payments Group and Credit Union Journal. Jeff Scott, as President and Managing Director of Banking, will report to me. Tim Murphy, John DelMauro and Frank Diekmann will report to Jeff within this community. Capital MarketsCapital Markets will comprise the Bond Buyer, FCC and the majority of the Capital Markets newsletters. Mike Stanton will head this Community as Executive VP and Managing Director of Capital Markets.All existing sales positions including Naz Bayazit, Lou Fugazy, Bill Baneky and Tara Gonzales will report to Mike.Technology This group will comprise DMR, BIR, HDM, INN, SIN and Traders. Rob Whitaker will head this Community as Executive VP and Managing Director of Technology. Reporting to Rob will be Ken Heath of Traders and Dan Rubinetti who will assume responsibility for sales management for the rest of the group.Professional Services This group will combine the Investment Advisor, Employee Benefits and Accounting Groups. Mike Dukmejian will be joining SourceMedia as Executive VP and Managing Director of Professional Services. Mike joins us from Time Inc where he was Group Publisher of The Fortune/Money Group and CNNMoney.com, Publisher of Mutual Funds Magazine, Director of Sales Development, Sports Illustrated and Corporate Marketing Director for Time Inc. Reporting to Mike will be Jim Callan, Dan Goldemen and Jack Lynch.New product development is an area in which SourceMedia needs to devote more effort and resource. Accordingly, we are establishing two new positions within the company to drive new growth initiatives.Adam Reinebach and Patrick Toner will each serve as VP of Business Development. Adam will work with the Professional and Technology Groups reporting to Mike and Rob, while Patrick will work with the Banking and Capital Markets Groups reporting to Jeff and Mike. Each of the community heads noted above will have responsibility for strategy, acquisitions, partnerships and the revenues for all of their brands’ activities in print, on-line, conferences and events.Therefore we will be disbanding the central conference group and re-aligning its resources to serve the needs of our communities. Sales and program development will report into the communities, marketing will report into central marketing and operations will report to our central operations group. As advertisers place high value on face to face interactions with clients, it is crucial that program development, editorial and marketing work closely and effectively together.One of the most commercially successful community-building brands that our company has established is the 25 Most Powerful Women in Banking franchise. I believe the success of MPWIB should serve as a template for the development of niche communities for each of our brands. We have the reach and the distribution and now need to aggressively move forward in creating and maintaining similar franchises. This is perhaps our biggest new opportunity. Holly Sraeel will assume the newly created position of SVP Brand Management, reporting to me. She will develop professional networking communities for our brands following the WIB model and will assume the additional title of President, 25 MPWIB. The Editorial functions for all of our products will be combined into one group under David Longobardi as Executive VP, Chief Content Officer. This will permit us to more readily share content, to provide consistent quality to our readers, to facilitate our journalists’ career paths across the organization and to support our brands with editors who can draw from a large pool of talent and resources. I feel very strongly that we need to do more to support our efforts in content development and creation across our organization; despite the best efforts of an editorial council, we need to be more proactive still in seeking cross-brand opportunities and establishing best practices and common standards for our products. We will be working through this year to implement the workflows and processes, and establishing the relationships necessary to make Editorial function optimally for our communities. Further details will be issued under separate cover by David Longobardi later today.As a result of the changes in our communities, senior managers David Greenough, Greg Gillespie, Bill Dimodugno, Maria McDaniel, Bill Bell, Robert Mitchell and Tim Reifschneider will leave SM. We wish them the best in the next chapter of their careers. There are a number of other changes which will more effectively support the new organization described above, and they are:Andria Wirth has decided to devote the next chapter of her career to raising her new daughter and we trust that she will be as successful in that endeavour as she has been with SM. Rich Antoneck will be promoted to Sr. VP, Financial Operations and will be responsible for our Finance and the Accounting Groups. Reporting to Rich will be Rebecca Knoop who will be promoted to Executive Director, Finance.Further details will be issued under separate cover by Bill Johnston later today. Classified Advertising will be centralized under Steve Andreazza. This group will sell classified advertising across all our brands and will be lead by Joanne Kao, reporting to Steve.Marketing will be restructured to provide coverage of all marketing activities (advertising, audience development, delegate and exhibitor marketing) under a Group Marketing Director for each community. The Marketing Directors will report to Anne O’Brien with a strong dotted line to the community heads. Further details of this organization will be issued under separate cover by Anne O’Brien later today. As noted earlier, conference operations will become part of our central operations group under Celie Baussan. All hotel bookings, venue management and other operational activities for our conferences and events will be handled by that group.The NRS and Accuity businesses will be consolidated under the leadership of Hugh Jones, President of Accuity. There is a huge market opportunity for us in the compliance and regulatory space across our business units. John Gebauer has done a terrific job of building the NRS business to its current level and will continue to play a key role in the senior leadership of our company. I believe that the benefits of bringing the data and credibility of Accuity together with the expertise and talent of NRS will be significant.Further details will be distributed under separate cover by Hugh Jones later today. One additional note to this already lengthy and important communication: in January of this year, Jeff Scott, respected colleague and good friend, began speaking with me about wishing to make a career change. He and I agreed to spend the year working through a process that would best serve the needs of SM and the needs of Jeff who is looking for a more hands on role in a technology and data business. We will continue working through this process and I expect that within the next several months we will hire a new community head for Banking and Jeff will find a position outside of SM.Please think this through and join the smart people in this organization who will work through the complex details necessary to make this work for our business now and in the future. As noted, there will be further communications about each group. Should you have questions please address them to your manager or to me.Jim To All SourceMedia and Accuity people: last_img read more

House Leaders Building Support for Deal to Raise Spending Caps

first_imgThe House appears to have sufficient support from defense hawks, Democrats and mainstream Republicans to pass the two-year budget deal during a planned Wednesday vote.The primary opposition to the agreement — which would increase discretionary spending by $80 billion over fiscal 2016 and 2017 and extend the nation’s debt limit through March 2017 — is from conservatives who object to lifting the caps set four years ago by the Budget Control Act.“I think every Democrat will vote for it and there will be enough Republicans in the conference that ultimately the deal will be passed. That doesn’t mean I agree with it,” said Rep. Matt Salmon (R-Ariz.), a veteran conservative.“It will be a big bipartisan vote,” Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) told the Hill.Several snags Tuesday night, however, threatened to delay the House vote. Some Republicans criticized the bill after the Congressional Budget Office determined it only includes about $75.7 billion in spending cuts to offset $89.7 billion in spending increases.The other sticking point was a reduction in crop insurance payments added to the bill to offset higher spending. Farm state lawmakers objected to the cut, which would raise $3 billion over 10 years.Senate Republicans also appeared to favor the budget deal, reported the Washington Post. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) praised the agreement for adding money for defense without raising taxes.“I’m hopeful and optimistic that that bill will come over to the Senate, and when it does, we’ll take it up,” McConnell said. A Senate vote would follow one in the House, and may not take place until next week.The deal was negotiated largely in secret by House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), McConnell and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), along with White House officials.The $80 billion in spending increases would be offset through savings from changes to the Social Security Disability Insurance fund and Medicare payments to doctors and other health care providers. New revenue would be raised by auctioning off portions of the federal broadcast spectrum, selling oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve and by efforts to increase tax compliance by large business partnerships, according to the Post.

first_imgBeautification of the city through public art and creative place making has become the  backdrop for mixed-use developments. However, those who appreciate the cultural aspect of creativity push for substance.Jessica Solomon, executive director of Art in Praxis. (Photo by Les Talusan)“I want people to actually imagine what it would look like if D.C. was reflective of all the amazing art and culture that’s already happening in the city. And if that art and culture got funded in a real way, and was valued and appreciated beyond it being an economic driver –beyond it being something that would encourage people to come in and buy a condo,” Jessica Solomon told the AFRO, March 24.In 2012, Solomon founded Art in Praxis, a social enterprise that embeds creative practices into capacity building and growth for community organizations, groups and individuals.Growing up in West Baltimore, Solomon has always been inspired by the non-conventional. “I come from a community and a home where we were always being creative about stuff,” she says. “I come from a family of magicians, shape shifters, and cultural organizers, and that was something that I was always interested in – this idea of doing things creatively and collaboratively.”While she was a master’s in organizational development student at American University, Solomon founded a theater company to fill a void in what she did not see on stage. As an outlet for creative expression, she curated an experience that allowed her and others to become storytellers, performers, and artists who toured across the country.From conducting meetings to strategic planning, creativity was always at the forefront of her business management; and the practices she adopted running the theater company have informed the work she does today.Through Art in Praxis, Solomon works with clients who engage in community development, social justice, and activism. She acts as agent to spur large-scale change. She specializes in constructing tailored consulting projects, workshops, and trainings based on a collaborative, creative, and culturally relevant approach. “Lately, I’ve been hosting these experiential activities called the Brown Bag Lunch Lab where I’ll work with leadership who may have some question, theme, or topic area they want to cover with their staff. And together we’ll co-create a two-hour meeting where I’ll facilitate and they’ll walk away with skillsets for some new way or approach to dealing with that issue,” she says.She is also working to make sure that companies thrive even without the presence of an outside coordinator. “A well-facilitated meeting can make or break a project and I feel like that is one thing that I see time and time again with organizations – just having run of the mill, unproductive, uninspired meetings. And so I’m really interested in developing products that people can purchase to help them facilitate really impactful, creative meetings,” she says.As the newly announced resident collaborator at the Potter’s House, Art in Praxis is also working to bring programming and work from local artists into the Adam’s Morgan coffee shop and performance space.As the company grows, Solomon continues to use her personal and professional experiences to shift culture. “I’m really grateful for the opportunity. I’m really excited about emerging practitioners who are looking to me or wanting to know how I do what I do. I’m really grateful I get to make stuff up,” she says. “It’s always rooted in some kind of methodology, but it really comes from just imagining how can I support organizations and people in being better at what they do.”For more information, Jess can be reached at hello@artinpraxis.org.last_img read more

Big bankers headed for BoC board

first_imgBy George PsyllidesBANKING heavy-weight Josef Ackermann has been proposed as chairman of the Bank of Cyprus board of directors as new shareholders announced a list of candidates ahead of November’s annual general meeting.Ackermann, former CEO at Deutsche Bank, was proposed by major BoC shareholdersWilbur Ross and Tyrus Capital on Monday ahead of the November 20 AGM.“The new Board has been selected to add financial expertise and will better reflect the shareholder base following the recent stock issuance,” a written statement said.Ackermann joined Deutsche Bank’s board of managing directors in 1996, where he was responsible for the investment banking division.Prior to Deutsche Bank, Ackermann was president of Schweizerische Kreditanstalt (SKA), today’s Credit Suisse.He held numerous board positions including sitting on the board of directors at Zurich Insurance Group, Royal Dutch Shell plc and Siemens AG, among others.Ackermann would be joined by Arne Berggren, nominated independently by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development; Maksim Goldman, a director of strategic projects at Renova; John Hourican, BoC CEO; Christakis Patsalides, BoC finance director; Wilbur Ross, chairman of WL Ross & Co; Michael Spanos, a former director of the Central Bank of Cyprus; Vladimir Strzhalkovskiy, vice chairman of the BoC board; Ioannis Zographakis, chairman of the BoC audit committee; and Marios Kalochoritis, director of the Bank of Cyprus.“This group intends to elect Ackermann as non-executive chairman of the board and Messrs. Ross and Strzhalkovskiy as vice-chairmen,” the statement added.Only Strzhalkovsky and Zographakis remain from the old board, which had been headed by Christis Hassapis.Strzhalkovskiy currently serves as vice chairman of the board. He held the position of deputy minister of the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation for four years (July 2000-November 2004).The Bank of Cyprus AGM in November is expected to approve the new board.Board memberships are subject to the approval of the Central Bank of Cyprus.The BoC board can have up to 13 members.Ross and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development had taken part in a recent €1.0 billion capital increase that saw new shareholders control some 47 per cent of its stock.The lender is trying to get back on its feet following the island’s messy bailout in March 2013.The terms included closure of Laiki Bank, the island’s second biggest, and seizure of deposits to recapitalise BoC.Last week, Moody’s ratings agency said BoC’s successful capital raise was a positive step towards the lender’s regeneration, but it continued to face acute challenges as non performing loans (NPLs) were expected to rise further.“The strengthened capital buffers bolster the bank’s loss-absorbing capacity and are a positive step towards the bank’s regeneration,” Moody’s said. “But the extent to which these developments will lead to a sustained improvement in the bank’s financial performance remains unclear, given the acute asset quality pressures the bank faces and its low provisioning against losses from problematic exposures.”  BIOS of the nominees as they were received by the Cyprus MailDr. Josef AckermannNon-Executive Chairman NomineeDr. Josef Ackermann is the former chairman of the management board and the group executive committee at Deutsche Bank.

bit of luck on your side as well You take a lot of chances in first six overs and even after that It is good to have luck on your side sometimes" he said Asked about the initial dot balls he said "I thought the wicket was slow and a bit dry to start with In last few games we have lost too many wickets early on we had to make sure that we did not lose too many wickets If we had wickets at the end

Sannata” but the actress reveals her industry friends advised her not to take up the role as they felt it was a “career suicide” Swara plays Chanda who dreams of getting her only daughter educated and later gets herself enrolled in school to complete her education “It was a rocking script and a great role and I knew I would be an idiot to turn it away I spoke to a few friends and they said it was a career suicide but the story stayed in my mind” Swara told PTI “I felt that if I don’t do it I would be lesser of an actor I was very excited to play a maid and a mother two roles I am not acquainted with at all” the actress said The film has been helmed by debutant director Ashwini Iyer Tiwari and produced by Aanand L Rai Swara says in the beginning even she was a little skeptic about taking up the role as she wasn’t ready to play a mother on screen too soon in her career Read More “Ashwini offered me the film I met her and first I assumed I had to play the 15-year-old girl and I was very pleased with myself but she told me that she wanted to cast me as a mother “I took that on my ego… I asked to myself ‘Do I look like a mother to her’ That meeting ended rapidly I told her I will let her know after reading the script I began reading the script with the intention of saying no But then realised the importance of the role later” To get into the skin of her character Swara spent time with a few domestic helps from Agra where the film is set “I lived with a lot of maids and interviewed them I even interviewed my own maid and used to make her say my dialogues so that I get a hang of their accent and the way they speak… To get the motherly affection right Ashwini asked me to interview my mother The actress says her anxiety regarding ageing drastically reduced after doing the film “The biggest takeaway from playing Chanda was very weird… It wasn’t something I expected As women and as female actors we are always worried about ageing about white hair approaching 30… We think we can’t get married as we feel it will affect our career and we can’t even think of kids as that will finish our career” Entertainment Videos by Indian Express For all the latest Entertainment News

Delhi and Beijing are inextricably linked to the strength of their national energy sectors As the economies of the BRIC nations continue to growtheir energy demand will rise sharply According to data from the US governments Energy Information Administrationby 2025 the BRICsled by Chinawill account for nearly 38 per cent of global primary energy demandup from 27 per cent in 2005 Some of its members will manage surging energy demand better than the others Owing to their advantageous resource endowments and the nature of their energy consumptionBrazil and Russia are relatively energy-secure nations In 2011Russia and Brazil were the second and ninth largest producers of oil respectively Last yearRussia was the worlds fifth-largest producer of coal and the worlds largest producer and exporter of natural gas For its partBrazil is almost entirely dependent on hydropower for electricity generationand recent offshore oil discoveries may soon catapult it into the ranks of major oil exporters China and India are less self-sufficientbut superior infrastructure and a centralised government position China better to meet its rising energy demand India has the most unstable energy condition in the BRIC cluband possibly the most uncertain energy future of all The scale of the energy dilemma is not newnor are the problems and the solutions Indian policymakers were aware of the countrys crippling energy shortages decades before the mass blackouts that occurred this July Policymakers know that power plants are starved of coal and natural gasthat subsidies promote waste and inefficient consumption and that electricity theft is rampant Pricing reform and better enforcement of electricity theft are still two critical solutions To its creditrecent reforms announced by the government suggest that policymakers are refocused on modernising Indias energy policy Howeverthese same politicos have in the past implemented marginal reformswhile neglecting to implement transformative reforms that truly attract investment Todaypolicymakers would be well served not to repeat such an error The emerging global energy landscape and the new wave of consumers promise a sustained period of expensive energy The new global energy gluttonsa group that includes IndonesiaMalaysiaSaudi ArabiaKuwait and the UAEare still considered lynchpins of global supplybut are concurrently grappling with surging domestic demand As a resultexport volumes from these nations are in decline For exampletake Saudi Arabiawhich accounted for one-fifth of Indias oil imports in 2011-12 Between 1991 and 2010global demand for oil increased by 31 per centand Saudi Arabias production increased by more than one million barrels per day During this same period (albeit with some fluctuations)howeverexports from the kingdom remained flat at 66 million barrels per day The natural gas market provides a similar picture: in the mid-1990s Indonesia and Malaysia accounted for roughly half of global LNG exports Todayboth countries are planning import facilities to meet growing demand Kuwait and the UAEboth considered energy-rich nationsimport LNG from as far away as Trinidad & Tobago to satisfy demand If nothing elsethis trend should crystallise for Indian policymakers the urgency of major pricing reforms In the short termthe oil price will reflect the prevailing macroeconomic and geopolitical winds at any given time In the long termhowevermost analysts forecast a consistent increase in the price of oil Similarlythe long-term trend suggests that natural gas prices will remain high Although GAIL is contracted to receive shipments of LNG from the United States at cheaper US pricessuch a contract structure will be the exceptionnot the norm Unlike CheniereGAILs American LNG suppliermost LNG producers are major oil and gas companies that need financing arrangements that justify investments in the exploration and production of natural gasas well as the construction of multi-billion dollar gas liquefaction facilities These financing realities suggest that oil-indexed contracts are likely to remain an integral component in global LNG trade Although macroeconomic headwinds in China have depressed coal prices this yearpricing reform in Indonesia and surging demand in southeast Asia suggest that coal prices will also remain competitive in the future In this contextinsufficient reforms will be costly Firstthe surging cost of imported gas and coalcoupled with stagnant domestic productionhave not only left power plants idle and bankrupted State Electricity Boards (SEBs)but they have also burdened the banking sector with a portfolio of non-performing loans Government efforts to bailout SEBs without dramatic changes to electricity pricing will hinder any lingering incentives to invest in new generationtransmission and distribution projects and may raise the borrowing costs for any new investments The new oil pricing reality is of greater concern Reform will not dramatically change Indias import dependence on oil; even increased production will not make India self-sufficient But nowamid ballooning fiscal deficits and jittery financial marketsmarket-determined prices are necessary to rid the government and the oil companies of unsustainable subsidies on their deficit-laden balance sheets Will such initiatives be too littletoo late for India Will its slowing growth and meandering energy and economic policies result in India becoming the first fallen angel among the BRIC nationsas Standard & Poorsa rating agencywarned in a June 2012 report Perhaps not Recent pro-reform messages from Delhi are promising But unlike Chinawhere the government can make unpalatable energy decisions relatively quicklyor
