General Election 2015: Tories and Labour neck and neck but don’t dismiss the Lib Dems

first_img Tags: General Election 2015 Express KCS With under 100 days to go, the general election is now extremely close. Polls put Labour and the Tories neck and neck, and the minor parties are breaking through like never before. The Greens, Ukip, and the SNP are surging, and, along with Plaid Cymru and the Northern Irish parties, are giving Britain truly multi-party politics for the first time.And what of the Lib Dems? It’s easy to assume that Nick Clegg and co will be wiped out, but while they are not in play in vast swathes of the UK, their ability to use incumbency to dig in and hold on to a significant number of seats should not be dismissed.The television debates, if they happen, could once again prove the centrepiece of the campaign. As well as the big beasts going head-to-head, the newcomers all have a chance to be the star of the show. Who will everyone be agreeing with this time around?There are other key events to look out for too. George Osborne’s final budget will be pure politics, not economics. The Tory case that the economy is improving will be further boosted if the pre-election jobs figures are strong. The parties’ well planned campaigns can be blown off course in one improvised moment. We all remember Brown’s bigotgate. With much at stake, the next 99 days will be well worth watching.

AMF offers guidance to help companies disclose exposure to modern slavery

first_imgAccording to the notice, the International Labour Organization estimated there were about 25 million victims of forced labour in the world in 2016, and this generated an estimated US$150 billion in profits.“Modern slavery affects tens of millions of people around the world, and Canadian issuers may be directly or indirectly exposed to this serious problem,” says Louis Morisset, president and CEO of the AMF, in a statement.“The AMF recognizes that modern slavery, in all its forms, is a growing concern for some market participants. That is why we are insisting on the importance for issuers of disclosing the required information as part of their continuous disclosure obligations in order to, in particular, help investors make investment decisions and exercise their voting rights,” he adds.According to the notice, existing securities regulations may require disclosure of certain information regarding modern slavery as a material risk factor.“Issuers should judge whether the nature of their business requires them to discuss the risks related to modern slavery in their continuous disclosure documents. For example, an issuer could face the following risks: litigation risks, regulatory risks, reputational risks and operational risks. Issuers should also assess the materiality of the risks affecting their supply chain, where applicable,” the notice states.Additionally, the existing rules impose disclosure obligations involving companies’ social policies; and, whether or not the board of directors has adopted a code of conduct and ethics.“When carrying out their oversight duties, boards of directors, audit committees and certifying officers should examine, among other things, management’s assessment of the materiality of issues related to modern slavery and satisfy themselves that the disclosure provided in the documents filed under securities regulation is consistent with that assessment,” the notice states.The AMF carried out a review of the current disclosure practices of 20 large issuers in a cross section of industries, according the notice. The review found that 15% on companies identified social responsibility issues as a material reputational risk and 15% referenced social policies dealing with respect for human rights, or the issue of modern slavery. Although 40% of the companies reviewed have adopted a code of conduct and ethics, only 10% discussed the issue of modern slavery specifically.The guidance is intended for all issuers, the notice states, but may be most relevant to industries that may be more likely to have exposure, such as the construction, manufacturing, entertainment and agriculture sectors.It is being issued in response to both international regulatory developments, such as recent U.S. and European legislation in this area; and, growing investor interest in social issues, including labour practices. James Langton Related news The Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF) provides guidance to help public companies disclose their exposure to forced labour and other forms of modern slavery, in a notice published Tuesday.The Notice relating to modern slavery disclosure requirements sets out how the Quebec regulator views companies’ disclosure obligations when it comes to various forms of abusive labour practices, such as child labour, forced labour, debt bondage and human trafficking.

Private Pharmacies to Dispense Government Hospitals’ Prescriptions

first_imgPrivate Pharmacies to Dispense Government Hospitals’ Prescriptions Health & WellnessSeptember 11, 2009 RelatedPrivate Pharmacies to Dispense Government Hospitals’ Prescriptions RelatedPrivate Pharmacies to Dispense Government Hospitals’ Prescriptions FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Prime Minister the Hon. Bruce Golding has announced an arrangement between Government and a number of private pharmacies to provide free prescriptions to the public. This move, he says, will make filling prescriptions easier for patients and reduce the load on public dispensaries.Addressing his sixth Town Hall Meeting in Annotto Bay, St. Mary, on Wednesday (September 09) he said, “One of the big problems at the hospital is at the pharmacy. We have a big congestion there because we are short of pharmacists but we have been able to develop a programme that will have some special pharmacies providing the drugs and you still won’t have to pay for it. The same way you would have gotten it free at the hospital, you will be able to go to these private pharmacies that we will announce and be able to get the drug free,” explained Mr. Golding.Mr. Golding explained that to benefit from the system patients will need to be registered.“You’re going to have a special health card that has some information on you embedded in the card. We started that registration process last week and I’m encouraging everyone to register. The health card and the registration process will also be free. “center_img RelatedPrivate Pharmacies to Dispense Government Hospitals’ Prescriptions Advertisementslast_img read more

Where are they now? Dr. Sarah Harvey (Click), Skyview Class of 2007

Dr. Sarah Harvey (Click), Skyview Class of 2007Posted by Paul ValenciaDate: Wednesday, June 17, 2020in: Sportsshare 0 Three-sport athlete and scholar is now in her final year of residency in PennsylvaniaShe skipped a grade in school so she was always the youngest person in her class.When she played varsity soccer at Skyview High School as a freshman, she was still 13 years old early on that season.By that standard, Dr. Sarah Harvey would be considered an overachiever.Dr. Sarah Harvey is in her final year of residency at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. As Sarah Click, she was a three-sport athlete at Skyview High School. Photo courtesy Dr. HareyDr. Sarah Harvey is in her final year of residency at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. As Sarah Click, she was a three-sport athlete at Skyview High School. Photo courtesy Dr. HareyBy her standards? Probably not. She has always been goal oriented, always sprinting to the next challenge. Based on her own lofty expectations, she has not really exceeded those expectations.Still, her achievements are worthy of celebration.As Sarah Click, she was a three-sport athlete all four years at Skyview. She had a career night in front of one of the largest crowds to ever watch a girls basketball game in Clark County. She was a state placer in tennis, and excelled in that sport in college, as well.The local sports scene knew of her for all those skills. Turns out, she was even better as a student — Skyview High School Class of 2007.“I loved playing sports, but I also was really into my school. I loved math and science. I pursued a degree in biology. I was always inclined toward something in the science realm,” Harvey said. Initially, she figured she would go into the research field. In college, though, she figured she wanted more interaction with people. She wanted to go into the practice of medicine.Today, she is in her final year of residency in the anesthesiology program at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Two years ago, she married Justin Harvey, who she met when he was visiting the Northwest when Sarah was in college. They welcomed their first child in December, a baby boy named Calvin.Time management is a necessity in their lives.“I did athletics the majority of my adolescence and young adulthood. I will always be a proponent for how they teach you sacrifice, teamwork, perseverance, and general life skills,” Harvey said. “And managing a busy schedule.Dr. Sarah Harvey excelled in tennis in high school and in college. She said the sport will always be a part of her life. Photo courtesy Carl ClickDr. Sarah Harvey excelled in tennis in high school and in college. She said the sport will always be a part of her life. Photo courtesy Carl Click“I think a lot of who I am today, in terms of those types of qualities, come from my experience as a student athlete in high school and college,” she said.In tennis, she and doubles partner Abby Olbrich finished fourth in state during Sarah’s senior season. Sarah went to Linfield College and earned academic All-American status there.In basketball, Sarah made five 3-pointers in the district championship game. Prairie would prevail in double-overtime, with a standing room only crowd in the gym. Sarah was not known for her outside shot, but on that night, she was in a zone.“That was a miracle performance by me that never happened before,” she said. “Something in the stars aligned that night.”Even today, she says that when she shoots around, the ball rarely goes in the hoop.Well, to be fair, she has more pressing issues.Dr. Sarah Harvey (Sarah Click in high school) said being a three-sport athlete at Skyview helped her learn the value of time management. That skill helped her throughout college and medical school, and now as a new mom in her final year of residency.

That skill helped her throughout college and medical school, and now as a new mom in her final year of residency. Photo courtesy Carl ClickFrom Linfield, she moved to Seattle to work in a lab for a year before medical school. She attended Oregon Health and Science University from 2013 until graduation in 2017.Officially a doctor.Harvey called it a mixture of reactions when she first heard a patient call her doctor. After all, a doctor is an intern somewhere when it happens.“That first time? You’re proud. You’ve made it. A benchmark in your life,” she said.Also …“A healthy humility in recognition of the fact you have so much to learn.” After her residency, she and her husband will look at their options. They will keep an open mind as to where they will call home.Maybe even a return to the Northwest?“I was fortunate to grow up where I did,” Harvey said. “I would never take back my experience at Skyview.”Competition will remain part of Sarah Havey’s life, too. She has taken up running and biking, and the sport she played in college is sure to make a comeback someday. “I do have my tennis racquets and shoes,” she said.She has not played lately but she promises to return to the court when life is a little less hectic.A new mom and in residency, Dr. Sarah Harvey is certainly busy … busy doing everything she set out to do back in high school.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTags:Clark CountyLatestVancouvershare 0 Previous : Governor’s office responds to Clark County questions on CARES Act funding Next : Evergreen School District names Klarissa Hightower executive director of equity and inclusionAdvertisementThis is placeholder textlast_img read more

Reed to Euros: No blue for you

first_imgCHASKA, Minn. – Born in Spring, Texas, educated in Georgia, and truly at home only in San Antonio, for three glorious fall days Patrick Reed played his frenzied role to perfection. He was animated and angry, energized and endearing; the perfect tonic for America’s Ryder Cup woes if not the ideal epicenter for what turned into the game’s most raucous member-guest (think TPC Scottsdale’s 16th hole times 18). From the outset of the 41st matches, U.S. captain Davis Love III stressed that each of his 12 players had a single job. For Reed, he may have exceeded even the most lofty job description. The 26-year-old paired with Jordan Spieth to play all four team sessions, hauling his American stable mate across the finish line on Saturday afternoon with the type of performance that defines Ryder Cup careers, a masterpiece that included six birdies and an eagle through 17 holes. He was even better on Sunday. When Love marched Reed out in the day’s first match against Rory McIlroy, Europe’s undisputed heavyweight at Hazeltine National, the job parameters remained unchanged – win your match – but in practice the outcome was much more nuanced. European captain Darren Clarke had to front-load his Sunday singles lineup with hopes that they could set an early tone for a comeback like the one that went the Continent’s way in 2012 at Medinah. Ryder Cup: Scoring | Live blog: Day 3 | Photo gallery Full coverage from the Ryder Cup An early American victory would be clutch; if Reed could keep McIlroy from running away with the match and posting an early European flag on the leaderboard, it would have a profound impact on the back end of Clarke’s lineup. “It was important to get some excitement going in the beginning and get off to a good start,” Love said. “We knew they were going to load the boat, and we had to get off to a good start against them.” There was a brief moment, just past the lunch hour, when Love & Co. had no American flags on the scoreboard and trailed in six matches. It was Medinah all over again. Leave it to Reed, the U.S. side’s unlikely ace, to set the tone with a deafening performance. He eagled the fifth to square his match with McIlroy, birdied Nos. 6 and 7 to keep pace with the Northern Irishman and traded the week’s ultimate blow on the eighth hole. From 50 feet, McIlroy – pushed to the limit by unruly fans all week and keen to push back – charged in a 50-footer for birdie. “I can’t hear you,” he roared at the masses. Moments later, Reed matched him with a 25-footer for birdie, followed by a finger wag in McIlroy’s direction. So much show, so much swagger, so much spirit. There’s no better theater in golf than the Ryder Cup, and for three days there weren’t two better leading men than Reed and McIlroy. If the Minnesota masses had a tendency to go too far, and they did, Reed’s antics only went to prove once and for all that it’s not indifference that has cost the U.S. team all these years. If anything, Reed and his frat brothers may care too much. If you can want something only so much, Reed’s passion was boundless and infectious. But then he’s always been that way. “He hates losing more than he loves winning,” said Josh Gregory, Reed’s college coach at Augusta State and still a member of his inner circle. “He’s a rock star playing pro golf. If he could play in a dome with people yelling at him, he’d love every single week.” By the time Reed finally pulled away with a birdie at the 12th hole to take his first lead of the day, the rout was on with the U.S leading in seven matches and needing just five points to reclaim the cup. The U.S. team motto all week at Hazeltine was “12 Strong,” and the box score suggests that was the case with every member of Love’s team earning at least one point. But when the line between obituary and ovation is so thin, the actions of a single man can often dictate the outcome. Reed wanted to play McIlroy, he wanted to play early, it’s in his DNA. Love and fate delivered both and he took care of the rest in a frenzied blur befitting his budding Ryder Cup reputation. His record in the transatlantic title bout now improves to 6-1-2 in two starts after going 3-1-1 at Hazeltine, and his reputation as a bona fide match-play closer has now reached urban legend proportions. “I told Ian Poulter back in 2012 that he was built for the Ryder Cup, and I think Patrick Reed is built for the Ryder Cup, too,” Love said. “He’s got that attitude.” Some players are made for these high-pressure events, players like Reed who thrive on adversity and the harsh head-to-head reality of match play. There’s nowhere to hide or play it safe, just a glaring spotlight and an unrelenting opponent. Reed wanted the pressure. He wanted the moment. He wanted to be Love’s guy out front nixing any possible European rally. “My job was to not allow blue [European flags] to go on that board, I couldn’t allow blue to go on that board because I knew they needed me to come out and get that confidence going,” said Reed, his voice hoarse from three days of exuberance. “I knew if Rory went out and got a point, it just wasn’t good for our team. I had to do my part.” As he headed up the 18th hole, his mission all but accomplished even with McIlroy still having a chance to scratch out a half point if he could win the final hole, Reed provided the perfect walk-off to his week, firing his approach shot to 5 feet and rolling in the birdie putt for a 1-up victory. He’d done his job. He’d kept McIlory under his thumb, and helped lift the U.S. to its first victory in the biennial matches since 2008. He’d done it with grit and emotion. He’d earned the U.S. side’s Man of the Match honors and a new nickname – Minnesota wild.last_img read more
