UKs Treasury chief says Brexit deal doable by November

first_imgLONDON – Britain’s Treasury chief said Tuesday that striking a divorce deal with the European Union over the next two months is “doable,” while the boss of Jaguar Land Rover warned that tens of thousands of jobs could be lost if the country crashes out of the EU with no agreement.With Brexit a little more than six months away, concerns have grown that the sides will not reach a deal because the British Parliament and the governing Conservative Party are divided on what Britain’s future relationship with the EU should be.In that event, Jaguar Land Rover CEO Ralf Speth said a so-called “hard Brexit” could result in the “worst of times” for the U.K. He said the U.K. is the company’s “home” but that a hard Brexit would cost Jaguar Land Rover, which is owned by India’s Tata Motors, more than 1.2 billion pounds ($1.6 billion) a year.“It’s horrifying, wiping our profit, destroying investment in the autonomous, zero-emissions (technologies) we want to share,” he told a Zero Emission Vehicle Summit in Birmingham, England.He said the loss of jobs would be “counted into tens of thousands if we do not get the right Brexit deal.”Hopes are fading that Britain and the EU can strike a deal at an EU summit in October as originally planned, but there are growing expectations that the EU is planning another meeting for November.Treasury chief Philip Hammond told a House of Lords committee that he agreed with the EU’s chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, that a deal was possible in six to eight weeks if both sides are realistic.“I think it is doable,” Hammond said.Business groups and civil servants say a “no-deal” Brexit could cause disruption to shipping, barriers to trade with the bloc, a fall in the value of the pound and even shortages of essential goods.Hammond said that “if we leave the European Union without a deal … we could expect a period when there would be some turbulence.”He said it was “very welcome” that Bank of England Governor Mark Carney had agreed to delay his departure date from June 2019 to January 2020 to help navigate any Brexit-related economic bumps.Hammond spoke hours after leading bankers downplayed the immediate impact of Brexit on London’s role as the hub of the financial services industry in Europe and on jobs.“There’s no question this has been an unsettling event, but our industry is in a state of constant flux,” Mark Garvin, vice chairman of JPMorgan’s corporate and investment bank divisions, told a parliamentary committee. “We have been involved in far more significant tumult than this.”Garvin said the jobs of only “hundreds” of JPMorgan’s 16,000 staff in the U.K. would be immediately affected by Brexit, though that could rise to around 4,000 in the years to come depending on the settlement reached between Britain and the EU.In the immediate aftermath of Britain’s vote to leave the EU in June 2016, many experts warned that Britain’s financial services industry — a huge tax source for the government — would see hefty job losses as businesses relocated to EU cities such as Dublin, Frankfurt and Paris, to retain benefits related to Europe’s single market.However, the number of jobs lost has not matched the doomsday predictions, and with just six months to go until Britain officially leaves, there are few signs that banks are panicking.A group of pro-Brexit politicians and economists, meanwhile, argued Tuesday that Britain will be better off, not worse, if it leaves the EU without a deal on future trade.Economists for Free Trade held a news conference in Parliament Tuesday alongside several leading pro-Brexit lawmakers, including former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson.The group argued that reverting to World Trade Organization rules, which can lead to the imposition of tariffs on certain goods, “would boost the U.K.’s trade with the rest of the world including Europe, lower domestic prices and boost inward investment.”Critics say that assessment relies on overly optimistic assumptions, particularly on the extent to which trade would be boosted if Britain unilaterally abolished tariffs.Hammond said the model used by Economists for Free Trade “are wildly out of line with assumptions that are used by other economic modelers, and frankly, I believe, are not sustainable.”last_img read more

JU eyes Central grant of Rs 125 cr for highend research centre

first_imgKolkata: The Jadavpur University is one of the eight educational institutes short-listed by Union Human Resource Development Ministry for a grant of Rs 125 crore, which will be provided to only four institutions, for setting up a centre for Sophisticated Analytical Instrument Facilities (SAIF).The Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, a premier engineering institution in the state, is also in the race. “We had already made a presentation in the end of April in Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari PujaDelhi showcasing we have the necessary infrastructure for the centre for Sophisticated Analytical Instrument Facilities. The centre will have high and sophisticated instruments facilitating high-end research. The centre will function in 365 days in a year and if we figure among the beneficiaries it will surely be a big boom for research in the Jadavpur University,” said Chiranjib Bhattacharjee, dean of engineering at the Jadavpur University. Pravas Chandra Chakrabarti, professor of metallurgical and material engineering has been chosen as the SAIF coordinator. Also Read – Bengal civic volunteer dies in road mishap on national highwayThe recurring cost and maintenance of the centre will depend on earnings from the service fees that will be charged for using the facilities of the centre. If Jadavpur University gets the grant approval, the tests carried out by the researchers in the university will be chargeable. If other educational institutions avail the JU SAIF facilities, they will have to pay twice the amount paid by Jadavpur University researchers or professors and if industries use the SAIF facilities at JU, they will be charged ten times. Sources in JU said a number of leading industries in Bengal such as Haldia Petochemicals and Tata Steel have shown interest in availing the facilities of SAIF. The names of the four institutions, which will get the Central funds, are expected to be announced by the end of this month after the elections are over. A senior professor in the varsity said a space in the Technology Bhavan on the main campus of the varsity has been earmarked for setting up the Centre. A three-member team from the HRD ministry had visited the JU campus in April to assess whether the university has the infrastructure for setting up the centre. The team had also visited the site that has been selected by the varsity for SAIF.last_img read more

FIFA Gulf Coalition Did Not Attempt to Block Qatar from Hosting

By Safaa KasraouiRabat – Media reports that six Arab nations requested the International Federation of Football Association (FIFA) to prevent Qatar from hosting the 2022 World Cup have been debunked as fake news.On Saturday, a website designed to look like The Local, a Swiss-based news platform, published a report claiming that Gianni Infantino, president of the FIFA, told the outlet that six Arab countries including Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and Egypt wrote to the organization to prevent Qatar from hosting the 2022 World Cup. Several major international news outlets reported the fake news.According to BBC, FIFA has refuted the rumors, saying that “FIFA has not received such a request.”“As already said, FIFA is in regular contact with the Qatar 2022 Local Organising Committee and the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy handling matters relating to the 2022 Fifa World Cup,” added the BBC.The fake outlet claimed that Gianni said that the six countries warned the international football federation of “the risks threatening fans and footballers security in a country that is ‘the base and the castle of terrorism.’ ”James Savage, founder of The Local, said that the story which was published on Saturday night was fabricated.According to news site The National, Savage said that they have searched the records and discovered that “there is no trace of it in our system, nor any evidence that anyone tried to access our content management system.”In June, six Arab countries had severed diplomatic ties with Qatar, accusing it of supporting “terrorist groups. read more

Sergio Ramos denies breaking antidoping rules

MADRID — Sergio Ramos has denied breaking anti-doping rules as suggested by German magazine Der Spiegel in the latest “Football Leaks” revelations.The magazine reported Ramos failed a doping test after the Champions League final against Juventus in 2017, and that the Real Madrid captain did not follow proper procedures when asked to take a test after a Spanish league match in April this year.Speaking after Madrid’s 3-0 loss at Eibar in the Spanish league on Saturday, Ramos denied any wrongdoing and said he has instructed his legal team to take action.“I’ve been tested 250, 300 times in my career and there was never anything wrong,” Ramos said. “I’ll take action because there are people who are trying to taint my career.”Madrid released a statement on Friday denying Ramos broke anti-doping rules.UEFA also said that it “strongly and categorically refutes unfounded allegations it has covered up positive doping results.”___More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/tag/apf-Soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_SportsThe Associated Press read more

Bee sustainable art

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Marina Nicolouleas is a 28-year-old Melbourne-based scientist with a passion for art and an artist with a passion for science. Marina has created an original handcrafted jewellery collection inspired by an era of collapsing bee colonies. She is entirely self-taught and has managed to mix her love for biodiversity and everyday life with her amazing crafting talent and eye for fashion. For her Queen Bee collection, she chose to go by the name Marzrian and answers my first question with an Albert Einstein quote.“If the bee disappeared off the face of the earth, man would only have four years left to live.”“A third of the food served on our plates we owe to the bees,” she tells Neos Kosmos. “If you haven’t heard, bees are suffering from colony collapse disorder (CCD).”According to scientific surveys, if bees become extinct, there will be no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals and no more man.“There have been huge losses from 50-90 per cent of colonies in beekeeping operations across the United States as well as Europe and now New Zealand,” she stresses.“Bees are not just some stinging bastards – they play a significant role in the preservation of all forms of life on this planet.”Marina began hand crafting pieces for her friends and family while she was still at school. After she completed her degree in science and biology, she became even more inspired by Earth’s incredible beauty, which is also why she is so passionate about conserving nature’s balance with her work. “I’ve been artistic from a very young age, always painted and made things myself from pottery to candles, soap even,” she explains.“I love learning how to make new things and for about a year now I’ve been focusing on making unique and sustainable jewellery.”Marina has also previously worked as a marine ranger. Her day consisted of conducting tour activities, from rockpool rambles to snorkelling in marine parks and sanctuaries to educate people about protecting the diverse range of species in our local marine environments.“My previous collection was influenced by the sea and I have also created many statement pieces drawing inspiration from everyday jobs and the people around me,” she adds.“It seems that I like to integrate what I am doing at the time into my work.”The scientist turned artist has managed to live off her artistic side and stay true to her values, in spite of the many difficulties she came across. “My jewellery is made from resin and some types are really toxic and difficult to handle,” she says.“After a lot of experimentation I have found which type guarantees the result I aim to have.“After collecting the dead bees from the hives I keep in my backyard, I have to sand, drill and glue my creations, not to mention wait for them to cure, which might take up to a week,” she continues.Marina tries to make ten pieces at a time and already has several copies of every design that was released on 20 March. She has chosen to add an extra high-end twist to her collection by enclosing gold leaves in the resin, drawing inspiration from the days when honey was referred to as ‘liquid gold’.“As I go along I enrich my collection with more ideas. I recently started making brooches, cuff-links and tie pins since a lot of men like my jewellery, and even make custom-made accessories,” she continues.“I hope that my collection will not only be endorsed as a design statement but as an effort to educate the people who are afraid of bees or are simply ignorant of their great contribution to the environment.”To Marina, the bees are her friends as they also helped her cure the heavy symptoms of her ongoing hayfever.“My family had bee hives when I was little and when I was married, my dad offered a hive for our garden. My husband was reluctant at first but he is even more into it now,” she admits.“I used to suffer from a very intense type of hayfever for more than ten years until I started having a teaspoon of our seasonal honey every day.“It has cured me, as I get no symptoms, but when I stop or when seasons change it starts again. Each season’s honey from your area can work as a natural antihistamine,” Marina adds.Marina and her husband own two hives that host 30,000 bees, yet they haven ever been stung by a bee.“They are some pretty amazing little guys and harmless,” she insists.“Bees sit on you to rest. They get scared with abrupt or violent movement and will only sting you if you threaten them.“If you blow them away or softly brush them away they will just fly off peacefully.”Scientists are trying to raise awareness regarding the demise of bees for years. Australia’s honeybees are currently healthy, however, it only takes one bee carrying one Varroa mite to land on a boat that docks on Australian shores for a colony to be infected. Seven species of Australian bees have no resistance to this mite, which is devastating bee colonies around the globe.“The world as we know it partly exists because of the bees’ good work.”For more information about Marzrian and a sneak peek into the Queen Bee collection, visit www.marzrian.com.au/queenbeelast_img read more

Isolated MashcoPiro Indians appear in Peru

first_imgLIMA, Peru (AP) – Members of an Indian tribe that has long lived in voluntary isolation in Peru’s southeastern Amazon attempted to make contact with outsiders for a second time since 2011, leading to a tense standoff at a river hamlet.Authorities are unsure what provoked the three-day encounter but say the Mashco-Piro may be upset by illegal logging in their territory as well as drug smugglers who pass through. Oil and gas exploration also affects the region. Top Stories Naturalists in the area and national park officials say the tribe’s traditional hunting grounds have been affected by a rise in low-flying air traffic related to natural gas and oil exploration in the region.Quicque said the Mashco-Piro were victimized by “genocide” in the mid-1980s from the incursion of loggers, and subsequently engaged in battles with mahogany-seekers.Members of the group reappeared in May 2011 on the banks of a different river after more than two decades in voluntary isolation.After those sightings, and after tourists left clothing for the Mashco-Piro, authorities barred all boats from going ashore in the area.Mashco-Piro were blamed later in 2011 for the wounding of one forest ranger and the killing of a Matsiguenka Indian who had long maintained a relationship with them and provided them with machetes and cooking pots.___Frank Bajak on Twitter: http://twitter.com/fbajak “They spoke a variant of Yine,” Quicque said, but Ponciano understood only about two-thirds of the words.The Mashco-Piro live by their own social code, which includes kidnapping other tribes’ women and children, according to Carlos Soria, a Lima professor and former head of Peru’s park protection agency.Peruvian law prohibits physical contact with the estimated 15 “uncontacted” tribes in Peru that together are estimated to number between 12,000 and 15,000 people living in jungles east of the Andes. The main reason is their safety: Their immune systems are highly vulnerable to germs other humans carry.Anthropologist Beatriz Huertas, who works with Peru’s agency for indigenous affairs, says the Mashco-Piro are becoming increasingly less isolated. The tribe is believed to number in the hundreds in several different clans.It is not unusual for them to appear where they did during a season of sparse rainfall when rivers are low, and they tend to be itinerant, she said.“What’s strange is that they came so close to the population of Monte Salvado. It could be they are upset by problems of others taking advantage of resources in their territories and for that reason were demanding objects and food of the population,” Huertas said.

They practically reached mid-river,” Quicque said by phone from Puerto Maldonado, the regional capital.The video shows Mashco-Piro of all ages and sexes, including men with lances, bows and arrows. In one image shot during a moment of tension, a man flexes his bow, ready to shoot.Quicque said the estimated 110-150 people living in Monte Salvado “feared for their lives.” He credited the ranger, Rommel Ponciano, for keeping a cool head.He said 23 Mashco-Piro appeared on the first day, 110 on the second and 25 on the third.

SEC Charges Home Loan Servicing For Material Misstatements Related to Ocwen

first_imgSEC Charges Home Loan Servicing For Material Misstatements Related to Ocwen The Securities and Exchange Commission announced Monday that it has charged Home Loan Servicing Solutions (HLSS) for making “material misstatements” about handling transactions with related parties, including Ocwen Financial Corp.The charges also included “inadequate internal accounting controls” within HLSS.According to the SEC, HLSS, which was purchased by New Residential Investment in April, misstated its handling of transactions with related parties, including Ocwen.Other implicated companies by HLSS were not mentioned by the SEC.In February, HLSS was under fire for a similar cause when a Los Angeles law firm announced a new class action lawsuit against Home Loan Servicing Solutions (HLSS) over its relationship with Ocwen.Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP alerted HLSS shareholders on Tuesday about the suit, which targets HLSS for not being open about the company’s close relationship with Ocwen, which has suffered from wave after wave of regulatory setbacks in the last year.HLSS revealed that it required William Erbey, Chairman of the Board and Excutive Chairman of Ocwen to rescue himself from transactions with Ocwen and other parties in order to avoid potential conflicts of interest from 2012 to 2014.The SEC deemed this to be false, finding that HLSS had no “written policies or procedures concerning recusals for related party transactions” and the Chairman approved “many transactions between HLSS and Ocwen.”In addition, the SEC charges found that HLSS misstated its net income in 2012, 2013, and the first quarter of 2014.These misstatements resulted from an internal accounting controls failure that allowed the company to adopt a valuation methodology that did not conform to U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP).“As a result of its lax internal controls environment, HLSS failed to properly value its primary asset and to make accurate and complete disclosures in its public filings,” said Michael J. Osnato, chief of the SEC Enforcement Division’s Complex Financial Instruments Unit. “It failed to meet requirements that are fundamental to ensuring that investors receive reliable information, including in matters involving complex assets.”HLSS agreed to pay a $1.5 million penalty to settle the charges and stop disclosure and books and recordkeeping violations.The company did not immediately respond to a comment request.Click here to view the SEC’s order against HLSS.
