By contrast, the UK as a whole will experience growth of 1.5 per cent. Much has been made of the stratospheric growth of London house prices in recent years – indeed, the CEBR reckons they rose 17.4 per cent last year, in comparison to the UK’s rise of 10 per cent.But it seems those who regarded the capital’s property market as a “safe haven” for their cash – many of whom were rich foreigners – may be deterred, after the chancellor introduced “hefty new” stamp duty charges during his Autumn Statement. Not to mention the mansion tax, which threatens to become a reality for homes worth more than £2m if the Labour party wins a majority at the election.Meanwhile, rising incomes across the rest of the country mean demand across the rest of the UK is likely to increase.As Nina Skero, the report’s main author, pointed out: “After a few months when the market appeared to be coming off the boil, December’s stamp duty changes, as well as rising household incomes, are lifting prices in many parts of the UK.”“In London, however, [a decline in prices will be] driven by a significant weakening at the prime end of the market. A potential mansion tax, reduced overseas interest and hefty new stamp duty rates have hit demand for high value property.” last_img read more

Former fund salesman fined $80,000

Facebook LinkedIn Twitter The Toronto-based Mutual Fund Dealers Association of Canada (MFDA) has fined Daniel Lipovetsky, a former fund salesman in Ontario, a total of $80,000 for borrowing money from clients and failing to comply with an investigation. Between 2007 and 2009, Lipovetsky borrowed a total of $20,000 from two clients ($10,000 each), according to MFDA documents. As a result, Lipovetsky created a potential conflict of interest with each client and failed to follow the MFDA’s policies and procedures prohibiting such activity. Lipovetsky has repaid the loans to both clients, according to the MFDA. Keywords Enforcement Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Related news Fiona Collie BFI investors plead for firm’s sale Furthermore, Lipovetsky did not attend a hearing panel in July despite being served a notice of hearing and therefore failed to cooperate with an MFDA investigation. While the MFDA hearing panel stated in its reasons for decisions that the fact that Lipovetsky had repaid the loans might have meant a smaller fine, his refusal to cooperate with the investigation warranted a strong penalty. In addition to the fine, Lipovetsky is also permanently banned from conducting any securities related business through an MFDA member. Lipovetsky must also pay $7,500 in costs.

Head of OSCE Programme Office in Dushanbe UK response

first_imgHead of OSCE Programme Office in Dushanbe UK response Ambassador Chiveri, thank you for your report and your presentation to the Permanent Council today. Please extend our thanks to your team for their work over the last year.COVID-19 has presented operational challenges to us all and we appreciate the Programme Office’s effective response to this challenge and your delivery during this period, especially the continuing operations at the Border Management Staff College.Tajikistan is an important partner to the UK and we will continue to support the country’s development through our own Central Asia programme, including on policy innovation, economic development and migrant reintegration.I was pleased to read the frequent references in your report to promoting gender equality and gender mainstreaming, including providing support to the sixteen Gender-Sensitive Police Units; combatting domestic violence through working with the fourteen Women’s Resource Centres; and furthering women’s participation by contributing to the draft law on gender quotas.Peace, security and prosperity are all strengthened by drawing on the talents of all members of society, so it is vitally important that women are included in this effort. We particularly welcome the focus on gender in the work of the Border Management Staff College, who have continued to promote women within the traditionally male-dominated border management profession.I would like to highlight three areas of work that I think deserve special attention.First, the support your Programme Office provides to Tajik officials on border security via regional conferences and tactical training with officials from neighbouring countries. This is essential for increasing capacity and building trust and expertise in an area vitally important for Tajikistan and its partners.Second, your work to promote socio-economic development, improving the investment climate, and support the development of small and medium-sized enterprises. As a country committed to free trade, we believe passionately in the power of enterprise to guarantee prosperity, safety and security. A more vibrant private sector also encourages Tajikistan’s brightest and best to explore opportunities at home and help contribute to their country’s future success.We recognise how difficult this work has been during the pandemic, which is why the UK has reoriented our Enterprise and Innovation Programme to support start-ups and small businesses in Tajikistan to overcome the challenges of COVID-19 and protect existing jobs; whilst also delivering more of our support online. COVID-19 presents an opportunity to ‘build back better’, and so we welcome your Office’s support to the Tajik government on transitioning to a green economy. As COP President one of our main campaigns is to accelerate transitions in the global economy. We are asking all parties to show ambition when it comes to climate action and we encourage Tajikistan in its development of enhanced Nationally Determined Contributions and commitment to net zero by 2050.Finally, on media freedom. We welcome the Office’s work on supporting the media regulatory body to improve professional journalistic standards in Tajikistan. A vibrant and skilled media is the essential ingredient for any healthy democracy. It empowers citizens by holding their government to account, and a transparent government builds trust amongst its people. We hope that the Government of Tajikistan will show further commitment to strengthening its democracy by engaging with ODIHR’s recent recommendations on enhancing the conduct of elections.More generally, we appreciate the information your report provides on the outcomes achieved as a result of the Office’s activities, and we would welcome even greater focus on impact in your reporting. The OSCE’s field missions implement much good work, as evidenced today, and it is essential for the strength of the organisation that we can also clearly point to the real world impact that this work has. The UK – here in Vienna and through our Embassy in Dushanbe – extends its cooperation and support to the Office’s work.Ambassador, thanks to you and your team for progressing the OSCE’s mandate in Tajikistan across all three dimensions of the OSCE. /Public Release.

Cabinet Approves Compulsory Acquisition of Garvey’s Birthplace

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail MONTEGO BAY — Cabinet has approved the compulsory acquisition of 32 Market Street, in St. Ann’s Bay, St. Ann, the birthplace of the first National Hero, the Right Excellent Marcus Mosiah Garvey. Executive Director at the Jamaica National Heritage Trust (JNHT), Laleta Davis-Mattis made the announcement on August 17, at Lawrence Park, in St. Ann’s Bay, where a celebration was held to commemorate the 124th anniversary of the birth of Mr. Garvey. Mrs. Davis-Mattis said the JNHT and the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture are working assiduously to rehabilitate the birthplace of the National Hero. “One of the issues that has debilitated our activities in the last couple of years is the fact that the place is occupied and the ownership has always been an issue. But the Government has taken the life of Marcus Garvey and the influence of Marcus Garvey on our lives so seriously, that it has approved the compulsory acquisition of 32 Market Street,” Mrs. Davis-Mattis told the scores of persons who attended the ceremony. She said the process of acquisition is in train and the office of the Commissioner of Lands has started its work. “The Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture, through Minister Olivia Grange, in association with the Minister of State with responsibility for Local Government, Hon. Shahine Robinson are now seeking to relocate the residents there, with a view to having the place ready for ground breaking in October, 2011,” Mrs. Davis-Mattis informed. Other plans for Garvey’s birthplace, she said, should see to the landscaping of the property and the erection of a memorial wall. Meanwhile, Acting Permanent Secretary and Principal Director for Culture in the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture, Sydney Bartley, said Marcus Garvey had indeed influenced the lives of the Jamaican people. “Our responsibility, if we want to pay tribute and homage to Marcus Garvey, is to carry on his project in our daily lives and in our communities. More than speaking the words to glorify Marcus Garvey, is to carry out actions that emulate and continue the very project he stood for, which is the advancement of the welfare of the people who are disadvantaged and vulnerable in our society,” Mr. Bartley said. He urged Jamaicans to look to each other and share in each other’s work and worth, “as we continue to strive for the betterment of African people here and abroad.” The civic ceremony was hosted by the Civic Affairs and Community Relations Committee of the St. Ann Parish Council, under the theme: ‘Marcus Garvey: Cultural Activist’.

Judge says strip club ruling also protects restaurants

first_imgHomeNewsJudge says strip club ruling also protects restaurants Dec. 18, 2020 at 5:00 amNewsJudge says strip club ruling also protects restaurantsAssociated Press6 months agoNews Elliot Spagat and Julie Watson, Associated PressA California judge said Thursday that all restaurants in San Diego County can resume on-site dining with safety protocols, marking a major setback to the governor’s stay-at-home order to slow the spread of the coronavirus.San Diego Superior Court Judge Joel Wohlfeil said the ruling he issued Wednesday that protected two strip clubs from being forced to stop indoor activity also extended to the thousands of eateries in the county of 3 million people.Hours after the ruling, San Diego County suspended enforcement of its restrictions barring indoor and outdoor dining and live entertainment. Officials then requested the hearing to get clarification from the judge about the scope of his ruling.Wohlfeil said Thursday that his order was “straightforward” and goes beyond the two strip clubs, Cheetahs Gentlemen’s Club and Pacers Showgirls International, that sued the county over an order in October to shut down.“It is intended to encompass all restaurants within the county of San Diego,” he said in a brief hearing.The judge’s ruling against the state restrictions comes as California registered a record 379 coronavirus deaths and more than 52,000 new confirmed cases Thursday.Citing the “record number of new infections, deaths and ICUs at capacity,” county officials, nonetheless, urged people not to gather and to socially distance, wear face coverings and wash their hands.Wohlfeil said in his ruling that it applies to “San Diego County businesses with restaurant services,” including the strip clubs. The injunction exempts them from shutdowns and “any related orders” that bar live adult entertainment and go beyond protocols “that are no greater than essential” to controlling the spread of COVID-19.The judge noted that before being ordered to close in October the clubs, Pacers Showgirls International and Cheetahs Gentlemen’s Club, operated for five weeks during the pandemic under their own safety measures — including keeping strippers 15 feet from tables, allowing no more than one stripper per stage and requiring them and other employees to wear masks.County supervisors had vowed to appeal if the judge extended his temporary Nov. 6 injunction exempting strip clubs.Gov. Gavin Newsom’s office said in a statement that it was disappointed in the court’s decision, though “we remain steadfast in our commitment to protecting the health and safety of all Californians.”Three restaurant owners, including one who owns several establishments in San Diego, said they were planning to reopen by the weekend. They did not want to be named for fear of being targeted by officials.Angie Weber, the owner of Cowboy Star and Butcher Shop in downtown San Diego, said she was waiting to see if officials appeal before calling her staff to return to work.“For now we are very hopeful that the ruling will be upheld and we’ll be able to reopen with all of the safety protocols that we had previously put in place,” Weber said in an email Thursday.Weber’s business was among two San Diego restaurants and two gyms that sued on behalf of their industries, asking that California’s four-tier system of pandemic restrictions be declared illegal. The judge in that case denied their request to resume indoor activity.In a similar lawsuit in Los Angeles County, a judge found the health director acted “arbitrarily” and didn’t prove that health benefits outweigh the negative economic effects before issuing a ban on indoor and outdoor dining. But then the state issued its order restricting restaurants to takeout and delivery services.Steve Hoffman, an attorney for Cheetahs, said he was “very pleased” with Wednesday’s ruling.“Cheetahs and Pacers will continue to operate in a manner that takes all appropriate and essential measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 while at the same time providing a means for their staff to earn a livelihood,” he wrote in an email.The ruling came after Newsom’s Dec. 3 stay-at-home order barred indoor and outdoor dining and prohibited social gatherings in response to a surge of coronavirus cases that has hammered hospitals across the state.The judge’s ruling followed a spirited argument about whether the shutdown violates the 1st Amendment, which protects naked dancing as free expression.“What’s going to happen next when there is some greater emergency? Are we all going to be under house arrest? Are we going to even have a Constitution?” said lawyer Jason Saccuzzo, who represents Pacers.Patty Li, an attorney for the state, highlighted the extreme scarcity of intensive-care unit beds and growing waits in hospital emergency rooms to justify what she emphasized were temporary measures.“It really is about the entire community, the entire state,” Li said. “This is the most serious moment of this pandemic in the state, in the nation so far.”Tags :Newsshare on Facebookshare on Twitteradd a commentHot spot: California hospitals buckle as virus cases surgeBuying Local makes a Big DifferenceYou Might Also LikeFeaturedNewsBobadilla rejects Santa Monica City Manager positionMatthew Hall5 hours agoNewsCouncil picks new City ManagerBrennon Dixson16 hours agoFeaturedNewsProtesting parents and Snapchat remain in disagreement over child protection policiesClara Harter16 hours agoFeaturedNewsDowntown grocery to become mixed use developmenteditor16 hours agoNewsBruised but unbowed, meme stock investors are back for moreAssociated Press16 hours agoNewsWedding boom is on in the US as vendors scramble to keep upAssociated Press16 hours agolast_img read more

Medved, Richards Ask: Are We Alone in the Universe?

first_img Email Print Google+ Linkedin Twitter Share Jane Goodall Meets the God Hypothesis At the end of a fascinating new podcast episode of Great Minds with Michael Medved, our host poses the question to Jay Richards: If life in the universe is singular, if we’re it and there is no other life, whether intelligent or otherwise, what’s the bad news about that, and what’s the good news? For materialists, there is only bad news, since it would strongly imply that life on Earth was somehow intended. Intention behind life wrecks the materialist view of reality, which is why they fight so hard against any notion of any exceptional status for our planet or for human beings.For others, for those who are simply open-minded and uncommitted philosophically, such a result if it could be known (and it can’t) might be a disappointment. But it would also open up wondrous possibilities not only of intention but of ultimate, transcendent purpose behind our privileged existence.Dr. Richards is co-author of The Privileged Planet and he talks with Mr. Medved about the incredibly precise and unforgiving requirements that would have to be met for life even to be remotely possible on any given planet elsewhere in the cosmos. That is to the point that a planet capable of sustaining life would in all likelihood be remarkably similar to our own, down to details like experiencing total solar eclipses. News of freshly discovered “Earth-like” planets is a staple of popular science reporting. But as Richards points out, still to this day the most Earth-like planet we know of is Mars, and that is a lifeless waste land.Jay is a great explainer who says he would be “tickled pink” by evidence of extraterrestrials, much as he is not holding his breath waiting for it. You’ll thoroughly enjoy their conversation. Watch or listen at the Great Minds with Michael Medved website, dedicated to exploring questions whose urgency and importance never go away.
