Official data showed that the number of people claiming Job Seeker’s Allowance last month rose by 5,300 to 1.47m and August’s increase was revised up to 3,800. Although the broader ILO measure revealed unemployment continuing to fall in the three months to August, it was the smallest quarterly drop since January and was driven by fewer unemployed 16 and 17-year-olds.While the August decrease saw the jobless rate edge down to 7.7 per cent, many City economists forecast that the rate could head back up to more than eight per cent over the next year as public sector cuts begin to really bite. The Office for Budgetary Responsibility (OBR) has estimated that 600,000 public sector jobs could be lost as a result of government cuts.Economists think it unlikely that the private sector will be able to offset rising public sector unemployment. “These increases in unemployment come before any of the planned public spending cuts have been implemented. Business survey data continues to suggest that the private sector is wary of hiring in the current climate of uncertainty,” said Andrew Goodwin at the Ernst & Young Item Club.A report yesterday from PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) said that austerity measures could also hurt the private sector, as firms supplying the government will cut jobs and output. The report said the private sector could lose almost half a million jobs and £46bn in annual gross output by 2014-2015 as efforts to slash a budget deficit hit the supply chain.

New regulator draws on old hands for external members

first_imgThursday 17 February 2011 8:50 pm KCS-content THE government yesterday appointed four external members to the board of a new regulator that is meant to replace the FSA and prevent future financial crashes – the Financial Policy Committee (FPC).It also released a new consultation paper on the committee that some said showed it had scaled down its ambitions for the regulator and given it a more limited mandate.The four new members, who join seven already appointed from the Bank of England and FSA, are supposed to add an “external” perspective to the interim body, which will be in charge of monitoring systemic risk and working out what tools its permanent replacement will need.But there is only one businessman among the “external” members: Michael Cohrs. The other three have all spent much of their careers in financial regulation and commentary: ex-CBI boss Richard Lambert and Donald Kohn are both former members of central bank boards, while Alastair Clark has advised the Bank of England for over a decade.Economist Richard Barwell at RBS also says that the latest document on the FPC “envisages a more modest objective for macroprudential policy” than previous proposals. He says the new mandate could make it difficult for the FPC to halt future bubbles.THE FOUR NEW EXTERNAL MEMBERS OF THE FPCAS the only new member of the committee with extensive business experience, Cohrs will add a vital outsider perspective to the formation of the new regulatory system. He spent a decade working at Goldman Sachs 1981-1991, after which he worked at SG Warburg for four years. He was then co-head of corporate and investment banking at Deutsche Bank until 2010. He also holds an adjunct professorship at Beijing University and was a member of the president task for on market mechanisms (the “Brady Commission”) that recommended reforms after the 1987 stock market crash.MICHAEL COHRSRICHARD Lambert recently retired from five years as director general of the CBI, representing business interests. Before leading the CBI, he was on the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee from 2003-2006. In 2003, he wrote a review of business and university collaboration at then-chancellor Gordon Brown’s request. Previously, he had an extensive career in financial journalism, editing the FT’s Lex column, its New York Bureau and, finally, the whole paper. He is also a trustee of the British Museum and Chancellor of the University of Warwick.RICHARD LAMBERTALASTAIR Clark has been in financial regulation for over a decade. He was the Bank of England’s executive director for financial stability 1997-2003 and then became an adviser to the government on the City 2003-2007. He left his role at the Bank of England in 2007 but returned later that year after being asked by governor Mervyn King to help deal with the building crisis. In 2009 he took a role advising the Treasury on financial stability. He is also an honorary visiting professor at the Cass Business School in London.ALASTAIR CLARKA FORMER member of the board of governors at the Federal Reserve, Donald Kohn spent 40 years in various roles at the Fed, including helping to craft its response to the financial crisis in 2008. During his time at the Fed, where he began his career as an economist in 1970, he worked as secretary of the Federal Open Market Committee from 1987 to 2002, director of its Division of Monetary Affairs 1987-2001 and, before that, as deputy staff director for Monetary and Financial Policy for four years. He is also a senior economics fellow at the Brookings Institution.DONALD KOHN Tags: NULL New regulator draws on old hands for external members whatsapp whatsapp Share Show Comments ▼ by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodayNight DailyHe Was The Smartest Man Who Ever Lived – But He Led A Miserable LifeNight DailyJournalPregnant Woman Takes a Nap – You Won’t Believe What She Discovered When She WokeJournalBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesUpbeat NewsThese 25 Celebrities Ruined Their Career in a Matter of MinutesUpbeat NewsTaco RelishOnly People With An IQ Of 130 Can Name These ItemsTaco Relishlast_img read more

West Virginia to consider new igaming bill

first_img12th February 2019 | By contenteditor A group of West Virginia lawmakers have introduced a new bill in the latest effort to legalise online gambling activities in the US state. The West Virginia Lottery Interactive Wagering Act, or H 2934, would enable the state’s four racetrack casinos – Hollywood Casino, Mountaineer Racetrack and Casino and Delaware North’s properties in Nitro and Wheeling – as well as the Greenbrier resort to offer legal igaming services. The West Virginia Lottery Commission would be responsible for regulating the market and administering licences under the proposed framework. Slots and table games, as well as other services, would be permitted under the bill. Venues seeking to operate online gaming services would need to secure a licence for a fee of $250,000 (£194,500/€221,500). These licences would run for five years, after which the holder would need to pay a renewal fee of $100,000. Licence-holders would face a tax rate of 10% of their adjusted gross interactive wagering receipts. Tax levied and collected would be due and payable to the Commission in weekly instalments. Aside from operator licences, the Commission would also be permitted to award a number of other licences, thus opening up the market to wider range of brands. These would include management service provider licences, whereby licence-holders may work with a separate entity to offer online gaming. These licences would cost $100,000 and only run for one year, with an annual renewal fee of $100,000. The Commission may also award supplier licences, under which providers would be able to sell or lease interactive wagering equipment, systems, or other gaming items necessary to conduct interactive wagering. These one-year licences would cost $10,000, with an annual renewal fee of $10,000. In addition, all persons employed to be engaged directly with igaming activities would require an occupational licence for $100. The licences would include an annual renewal fee of $100, although the bill would allow the person’s employer to pay these fees on behalf of their staff. The West Virginia Lottery Interactive Wagering Act has now been referred to the House Judiciary Committee for its first consideration.  The latest bill comes after Representatives Shawn Fluharty and Joe Canestraro last month also introduced House Bill 2178, seeking to amend the 1931 Code of West Virginia to legalise igaming for players aged 21 and above. Much of the language in the new West Virginia Lottery Interactive Wagering Act is similar to that of the state’s recently enacted sports betting laws. Since last August, consumers have been able to place bets in-person, and this was extended in December to allow for online wagering. Hollywood Casino was the first venue to launch in-person sports betting, via a partnership with William Hill. Mountaineer Racetrack and Casino, Delaware North’s two sites and the Greenbrier resort have since followed suit.

Prasanth Bhushan and also to the reasoning in the Judgment finding him Guilty of Criminal Contempt is most unfortunate and ought to have been avoided,” the General Body resolved. It also extended moral support to Bhushan “in his fight for Justice, Liberty and Accountability in Judiciary”. The Resolution has been passed in the backdrop of recent verdict of the Supreme Court holding Advocate Prashant Bhushan guilty of contempt, for his remarks over the CJI(s) and functioning of the Supreme Court.Amend Contempt Laws; Scandalising The Court Should Not Be Ground To Initiate Contempt The General Body of the High Court Association in a meeting held on August 24 also appealed to the Parliament to make necessary amendments to Article 129 and Article 215 of Indian Constitution and the Contempt of Courts Act, 1971 in order to “circumscribe the powers” of Courts, in respect of Contempt Jurisdiction. It urged the Parliament to provide that Criminal Contempt will arise only “when there is contempt on the face of the court” or “when a conduct amounts to preventing the course of justice”. It has been urged that “scandalizing the court” should not be a ground for initiating Criminal Contempt. It is further requested that there should be an “intra-court appeal” in criminal contempt cases.The lawyers’ body also resolved “to appeal to the parliament of India, to make necessary amendments to Art.129 and Art. 215 of the Constitution of India, and the Contempt of Courts Act, 1971 to circumscribe the powers of the Honourable Courts in respect of Contempt Jurisdiction and to provide that Criminal Contempt will arise only when there is contempt on the face of the court or when a conduct amounts to preventing the course of justice and that scandalizing the court shall not be a ground for initiating Criminal Contempt; and also to provide an intra court appeal for the criminal contempt cases.”.More than 200 lawyers participated in the General Body meeting which was held via zoom video conferencing on Monday at 3 pm. Most of the Senior Advocates and lawyers who spoke during the General Body supported the resolution. The resolution was accepted by about 65% lawyers who participated in the poll. Time To Derecognize ‘Scandalising The Court’ As A Form Of Contempt Background On August 14, a 3-judge bench of the Supreme Court had held Bhushan guilty of contempt of court holding that his tweets contained “scurrilous allegations” which had the “tendency to scandalize the Court”. The Petitioners had argued against invocation of Article 129 and Article 215 of Indian Constitution for exercising criminal contempt jurisdiction. In his written submission, Senior Advocate Rajeev Dhavan, appearing on behalf of Mr. Bhushan had urged that any contempt arising from speech can only be restricted by way of reasonable restrictions under 19(2) framed by law, for contempt. “To hold that Article 129 give a carte blanche to the Supreme Court to impose any punishment (different from or exceeding the maximum prescribed under the Contempt of Courts Act) would mean that the Supreme Court acting under 129 can ride rough shod over Article 19(1)(a) read with Article 19(2) which could never have been the intended. The only way to harmonize Article 129 with Article 19 would be to say that while the Supreme Court as a court of record would enjoy inherent powers to punish for other contempt such as disobedience of courts order or interference with court proceedings and could possibly impose a punishment different from what is prescribed by the contempt of courts Act, it cannot do so when it comes to punishment for contempt for speech,” Dhavan had argued. This issue was also raised by Mr. Bhushan today, during hearing of the eleven years old contempt case instituted against him in connection to his interview to Tehelka Magazine in 2009, subsequent to which the Bench conceded to the requests to settle the question of law. Whether Bona Fide Opinion About Corruption In Judiciary Amount To Contempt: Prashant Bhushan Submits 10 Questions In 2009 Case The SC verdict in the 2020 contempt case has drawn flak from various national and foreign Advocates bodies. Over 2000 lawyers, including noted Senior Advocates, have endorsed the statement of support for Bhushan. The Executive Committee of the Bar Association of India and Bar Human Rights Committee of England and Wales have also expressed their dismay at the Supreme Court verdict. Bodies like Bar Association of India, Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative (CHRI), Campaign for Judicial Accountability and Reforms (CJAR) have also criticized the verdict against Bhushan. Amid all the criticism, the Bar Council of Maharashtra and Goa expressed their support towards the SC verdict. “The Supreme Court of India as well as the judges are subject to both scurrilous language, malicious attacks and scandalizing remarks. Legitimate criticism of both judgments and the functioning of the institution has always existed however when the system miscalculated and actuated by malice, it is the authority of the Court which is undermined,” it had resolved.

Weather: First taste of spring later this week

first_img Tagged: spring weather, weather, weekly weather ITHACA, N.Y. — Behold, ye winter-weary souls; with temperatures above 60 degrees on Friday, it appears spring is coming, albeit briefly.Precipitation, mean sea level pressure and 1000-500 mb thickness (temperature proxy) for 8 PM Thursday evening. Warm air will flow into the region from the southwest as a powerful low pressure area passes to the northwest. GFS Model output courtesy tropicaltidbits.com.Your Weekly WeatherSunday’s morning snows and subsequent mixed precipitation came courtesy of a strong storm system lifting northeastward through the Great Lakes and into Canada over the weekend. This system will shift rapidly to the east, well north of the Southern Tier, so further impacts will be limited. However, as the system moves eastward, cold air will wrap in around it counterclockwise circulation, and so temperatures Tuesday will be a notch below average.For your Monday, expect mostly cloudy skies, some remnant rain and snow showers mainly to the north of Ithaca, a stiff westerly breeze and highs in the upper 30s to around 40 °F. Monday night will be cloudy and seasonably cold, with scattered light snow showers and temperatures settling in the mid 20s for a low. In terms of accumulations, don’t expect anything more than a thin coating, and really most places will see just a dusting.Tuesday’s a little cooler with the winds turning more out of northwest, but skies should clear out as the day progresses, from nearly overcast during the morning, to partly cloudy by lunch and only a few passing clouds by sunset. This is thanks to an area of high pressure that will be moving into the region from the west. Temperature will remain on the chilly side, with highs in the mid 30s in Ithaca and along the lake, and right around 32 °F in the outlying towns and elevated areas. Tuesday night will be mostly clear with calm winds and lows in the upper teens.Wednesday will be the start of our warm spell, as the high shifts just to the east and south of Ithaca, and warm air is pumped northward int its clockwise flow. As a result, we’ll see increasing clouds during the day, but highs will make it to around 50 °F in most spots. Wednesday night will be mostly cloudy but dry, with temperatures only falling back into the upper 30s. Brian Crandall reports on housing and development for the Ithaca Voice. He can be reached at [email protected] More by Brian Crandall Your weather news is made possible with support from: Brian Crandall Thursday is when the next storm system starts to approach, a powerful storm in the Great Plains that will move northwestward through the Western Great Lakes. The storm will be large enough to send a sweeping area of rain into the regions, but with the storm passing to the northwest, the Southern Tier will remain in the warm sector of its circulation. For Thursday, it will be very spring-like, with mostly cloudy skies, scattered light rain showers, and temperatures climbing into the low 50s. Thursday night will be cloudy, with periods of light to moderate rain, and temperatures hardly dropping, with lows in the upper 40s and a southerly breeze continuing to advect warm air into the region.Friday is looking to be the warmest day of all, with deep sotherly flow pumping mild, moist air into Ithaca and Tompkins County. It will be mostly cloudy with periods of rain, and temperatures will make it into the upper 50s in most places, and low 60s can’t be discounted for the city of Ithaca and areas close to the lake.However, all warm spells must come to an end, and as the storm system passes through Canada and east of our region, a renewed flow of cool air will begin to bring the temperatures down. Friday night will see the rain coming to an end, with calm winds, mostly cloudy skies and lows in the mid 30s. Saturday will be a notch below average but not terrible, with mostly cloudy skies, a few isolated rain showers, and highs around 40 °F. Saturday night will be mostly cloudy, dry and in the mid 20s, while Sunday will have but a few passing clouds and highs in the upper 30s, which is more than enough to keep the St. Patrick’s Day revelers happy.Graphic courtesy of the NOAA Climate Prediction Center.Extended OutlookLooking towards the astronomical start of Spring, it looks like it’ll be a cool start. A pronounced trough in the jet stream over the central United States will funnel unusually cool air into the Southern states, but the air will be fairly temperate by our Northern standards, and so temperatures won’t be as abnormally chilly. For those waiting for that next taste of spring, the models are strongly hinting at a very pronounced warm period towards the end of March for the mid-Atlantic and Northeast, so rest your weary souls, spring is definitely coming. last_img read more
