New computer games like Assassin’s Creed Unity prompt inflation to edge up in October

first_img New computer games like Assassin’s Creed Unity prompt inflation to edge up in October Tags: UK inflation Chris PapadopoullosChris Papadopoullos was City A.M.’s economics reporter until February 2016. He is an economist at OMFIF. Inflation edged up in October, but is still expected to fall over the coming months.The headline measure of prices – the consumer prices index (CPI) – rose to 1.3 per cent for the year to October, up from 1.2 per cent in September, according to figures released by the Office for National Statistics yesterday.The CPI is calculated using a basket of goods that a household would usually buy. CPI inflation was buoyed by higher computer game prices, with new titles released in the run up to Christmas replacing cheaper ones.New games such as Assassin’s Creed Unity retail for around £50. Fuel prices also slowed their decline, lifting the figure.“It looks increasingly likely that inflation will dip below one per cent in the early months of 2015,” said Martin Beck, economic adviser to the EY Item Club. He said low oil prices implied a further fall in petrol prices.

Provinces propose retail participation in private placements

first_img Private markets a breeding ground for Covid-19 scams: NASAA SIFMA supports senior investor taskforce The regulators indicate that, under the current rules, issuers seeking to raise capital from new retail investors in the exempt market are required to prepare an offering document; and, that Canadian issuers “rarely use these exemptions because of the time and cost involved in preparing the offering document.” As a result, ordinary retail investors are generally excluded from these sorts of distributions. “This means that retail investors do not have an opportunity to participate in the more favourable terms generally offered through private placements,” the regulators note. Retail investors that want to invest in a company must do it in the secondary market, often through an investment dealer. Under the proposed new exemption, retail investors would still rely on a firm’s existing financial disclosure, and a dealer’s suitability advice, as they do when they invest in the secondary market. However, they would now be able to take part in a private distribution, subject to certain conditions. The regulators say that the requirement to obtain advice is “a key condition for investor protection”, because investment dealers must meet know-your-client (KYC) and know-your-product (KYP) obligations when determining the suitability of the investment. The exemption would not apply to dealers that are restricted dealers, exempt market dealers, or dealers that don’t have to provide suitability advice such as discount brokers. The proposed new exemption would also impose certain other conditions, including that the issuers’ continuous disclosure is up-to-date and in compliance with regulatory requirements; that the issuer announce the proposed distribution in a news release; and, that the investor has the right to sue over any misrepresentation in the issuer’s continuous disclosure record. The three regulators are inviting comments on the proposals until June 15.

The regulators in British Columbia, New Brunswick and Saskatchewan proposed a new exemption Thursday, which would allow issuers to raise capital from retail investors without a prospectus, or an offering document. The new exemption would only be available to reporting issuers that are listed on a recognized Canadian stock exchange. And, the investor would have to first obtain advice on the suitability of the proposed deal from an investment dealer. Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Keywords Private placements last_img read more

New UK sanctions targeting Assad regime for repressing Syrian people

first_imgNew UK sanctions targeting Assad regime for repressing Syrian people Senior regime figures including Syrian Foreign Minister, adviser to Assad and Republican Guard commander handed asset freezes and travel bansFirst use of UK’s autonomous sanctions regime against Syrian figures, who have contributed to a decade of war and sufferingUK pushing for regime to engage in UN-led talks and allow humanitarian access after decade of violenceThe UK has announced a fresh round of targeted sanctions on the Assad regime, including close allies of the Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, to send a clear message that they must be held to account for their crimes.The Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab has outlined that the UK will impose travel bans and asset freezes on six members of the regime, including the Foreign Minister, to ensure they do not benefit from the UK in any way.The new sanctions are the first against the Syrian leadership under the UK’s autonomous sanctions regime, which came into existence following the end of the EU Transition Period, and follow 353 targeted sanctions listings on Syria that are already being implemented.The individuals are all part of or support the regime, and are responsible for repressing the Syrian people or benefitting from their misery.After 10 years of violence, more than half a million people have died and 11 million people have been displaced from their homes. Vital infrastructure, hospitals and schools are routinely attacked.The UK is working through the United Nations Security Council to push the regime to engage meaningfully in the UN-led peace process and Constitutional Committee talks in Geneva, release those held in arbitrary detention, and allow unhindered aid access throughout Syria.At the same time, the UK has been delivering life-saving aid since the beginning of the conflict. Since 2012, across Syria and the region, we have provided over 28 million food rations, over 20 million medical consultations, and over 14 million vaccines.Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said:The Assad regime has subjected the Syrian people to a decade of brutality for the temerity of demanding peaceful reform.Today, we are holding six more individuals from the regime to account for their wholesale assault on the very citizens they should be protecting.The announcement comes on the 10th anniversary of the Syrian uprising. The Assad regime continues to treat Syrians with brutality and violence, including the horrific use of chemical weapons.Progress on the political process has been blocked by the regime and its backers. The human rights abuses, repression and corruption that sparked protests in 2011 have worsened, and the humanitarian situation continues to deteriorate.Notes:The following members of the Syrian regime have been sanctioned today:Faisal MIQDAD. Minister of Foreign Affairs. Appointed in November 2020. As a Government Minister shares responsibility for the Syrian regime’s violent repression against the civilian population.Luna AL-SHIBL. Adviser to President Assad and a prominent member of his inner circle. As Media Adviser to the President, she supports the Syrian regime, which relies on disinformation and a lack of media freedom to repress the civilian population. She is also associated with the Syrian regime through her role as an adviser.Yassar IBRAHIM. Prominent and influential businessperson and financier to President Assad, operating across multiple sectors of the Syrian economy. The Ibrahim family, led by Yasser Ibrahim, is associated with the Assad regime, and acts as a front for Bashar and Asma Assad’s personal hold on the Syrian economy, whilst millions of Syrians are food insecure.Muhammad Bara’ AL-QATIRJI. Prominent and influential businessperson operating across multiple sectors of the Syrian economy. Qatirji supports and benefits from the regime including through enabling, and profiting from, trade deals with the regime in relation to oil and wheat.Major General Malik ALIAA. Major General and Commander of the Republican Guard as of January 2021, and former Commander of the Republican Guard’s 30th Division. Responsible for the violent repression of the civilian population by troops under his command, particularly during the increased violence of the offensives on north-west Syria of 2019-2020.Major General Zaid SALAH. Major General and since January 2018 Commander of the Syrian Army’s 5th Corps, and previously commanded the Republican Guard’s 30th Division. Responsible for the violent repression of the civilian population by troops under his command, particularly during the increased violence of the Idlib/Hama offensive which began in April 2019.Further detail on the UK’s autonomous sanctions regime:Syria is subject to UK sanctions under both the Syria and Chemical weapons sanctions regimes:https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/financial-sanctions-syriahttps://www.gov.uk/government/publications/financial-sanctions-chemical-weaponsThe full list of UK Autonomous sanctions can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/the-uk-sanctions-list /Public Release.

Class of 2020: Jami Riley

first_imgPublished: May 11, 2020 Jami Riley taught high school math for four years before enrolling full time in the CU Boulder School of Education’s Secondary Mathematics Master’s program with her sights set on developing the tools and knowledge to further refine her teaching practice with research-based evidence. Riley has proven to be an incredible student who balances high quality work while helping coach the distance track and cross country teams at Legacy High School in Broomfield, her professors said. She holds a deep curiosity about educational policy, theory and practice in mathematics education, and she sought to identify design principles for mathematics classrooms that supported students’ engagement in powerful mathematics and identities as mathematics learners. Aware of the powerful forces of social hierarchies around race and culture in mathematics teaching and learning, Riley also aimed to develop practices and structures that would disrupt predominant lines of status and racial stereotypes in the mathematics classroom. In her capstone project, Riley weaved together a coherent and compelling case for making time in mathematics classrooms for students to reflect on group norms and their mathematical contributions when making sense of mathematics. Her study of socio-mathematical norms and the potential influence of “participation quizzes” demonstrated a sophisticated analysis of research literature, observation data, and students’ responses in class and to surveys to form a critique of status quo classroom practices in high school mathematics and offer recommendations for the future.Get to know Outstanding STEM Education Graduate Jami Riley:What is one of the greatest experiences or lessons from your time at CU Boulder that you’ll carry with you into the next chapter of your life?Overall, my learning experiences at CU Boulder have allowed me to take a giant step back from the day-to-day teaching concerns (i.e. finishing my lesson plans for the next school day) and have provided me with an opportunity to think about larger structures of power that shape my decisions as a teacher, as well as students’ experiences as mathematics learners. In particular, learning about the “hidden curriculum of work” (Anyon, 1980) that shapes students’ learning opportunities along lines of social class and serves to perpetuate the current social order was extremely impactful. Thus, upon my return to teaching high school mathematics, I will use this knowledge to consider how my lessons position students in relation to mathematics and I will strive to identify and make necessary changes so that all students truly have equal access to powerful mathematical knowledge.What is your best piece of advice for incoming students?When I started classes at CU Boulder I had particular beliefs and ideas about teaching mathematics. Some of these beliefs and ideas were confirmed and strengthened, while others were challenged, which led to my own personal change and growth. I think when you pursue higher education it is because you want to change and grow, so I think it is important to allow yourself space to do so. In short: it’s OK to change your mind.What does graduating from graduate school represent for you?Graduating with my Master’s degree is an important step for me both personally and professionally. Personally, I value continuous learning and growth, and completing this course of study has allowed me to engage in both of these things in a structured manner. Professionally, graduating with my Master’s degree provides me with the tools and credibility to fight for and justify changes at the classroom and school level that would provide traditionally marginalized students of color with more equitable access to powerful mathematics learning.What continues to drive your passion for your work after graduation?The fact that mathematics is such a powerful (and beautiful) discipline, coupled with the joy I find in helping kids uncover this power and beauty, drives my passion to continue teaching high school mathematics. Additionally, I think there is currently a need for educators across the U.S. to fully commit to innovative and equitable approaches to teaching mathematics, and I feel passionate about being a supportive leader in this movement. Categories:Student NewsTags:Outstanding GraduateStudent Storieslast_img read more

$60 million to be spent on buildings for three Councils

first_imgRelated$60 million to be spent on buildings for three Councils Related$60 million to be spent on buildings for three Councils $60 million to be spent on buildings for three Councils Local GovernmentNovember 30, 2010 Related$60 million to be spent on buildings for three Councilscenter_img FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Approximately $60 million is to be spent by the Department of Local Government to construct two Municipal buildings, and expand another facility, to accommodate the operations of three local authorities.The three authorities that will benefit are the St. Thomas and Westmoreland Parish Councils, and the Portmore Municipal Council.This was announced by State Minister for Local Government in the Office of the Prime Minister, Hon. Robert Montague, at a recent launch of the St. Thomas Parish Council’s Customer Service Charter, in Morant Bay.Mr. Montague pointed out that currently, the St. Thomas and Portmore Councils do not operate from their own facilities.As a result, he said the Department took the decision to have the requisite facilities developed for their permanent relocation. He pointed out that preliminary designs have been completed for St. Thomas, while the plans for Portmore are being redesigned.“We have sent them (designs) to St. Thomas, so that the consultation with the Council can begin. We had expected to break ground this November, but we understand that the process of consultation must be observed, because what we envision might not be what the people of St. Thomas want. Therefore, we have put that on hold. But, I want to publicly state that the money is committed for the building,” the State Minister said.Regarding Portmore, Mr. Montague said the Department has been in consultation with the Council and citizens, which has resulted in the initial plan currently being redesigned. In the case of the Westmoreland Council, he pointed out that “major alterations” are being done to the plan for that building. This, he explained, would not necessitate the construction of a new building.“We started out with the extension of a building to accommodate the accounts department. But we realised that if we re-oriented the building, we would end up with more space, than actually getting a building. So, we are re-designing Westmoreland’s (plan) from scratch,” he informed.Mr. Montague assured that the structures will be energy efficient, as they would incorporate features, such as light-emitting diode (LED) lamps and solar panels.

Our Debt to the Scientific Atheists

first_imgJane Goodall Meets the God Hypothesis “A Summary of the Evidence for Intelligent Design”: The Study Guide Physics, Earth & Space Our Debt to the Scientific AtheistsDavid KlinghofferMay 26, 2021, 1:43 PM As Dr. Meyer explains, the debt is twofold. First, biologist Richard Dawkins and others have a special talent for framing questions about how science may illuminate the ultimate question we can ask — about life, the universe, and their origin. Dawkins is right that the question about God’s existence is also a question about science, and can be adjudicated as such. Second, it was a debate with cosmologist Lawrence Krauss that prompted Meyer to look more deeply into the evidence of physics and cosmology. That allowed him to draw those fields into the argument he had previously developed from biology which, in turn, permitted extending the case for intelligent design, in a generic sense, to the case for a personal God. So, everyone who cares about the most important mystery that humans can ever consider should say “Thank you!” to Dawkins, Krauss, and their associates.
