ECB warns low growth could see Eurozone asset prices fall and borrowing costs rise

Posted On Sep 4 2021 by

first_img Harry Robertson The ECB’s May financial stability report comes during a period of slow growth for the euro area, which has struggled with global trade tensions, Brexit negotiations, and a weak recent performance by Germany, Europe’s biggest economy.“If downside risks to the growth outlook were to materialise, risks to financial stability may arise,” said Luis de Guindos, vice president of the ECB. “The growth outlook is central to all the main risks to financial stability.”A long period of low growth in Europe is likely to see borrowing costs for countries and companies with high debts rise significantly, which could “unearth debt sustainability concerns”, the ECB warned.In a veiled swipe at Italy, the euro’s central bank said although public debt in the zone overall has fallen, it has “continued to increase in some of the highly indebted countries”.Brussels and Rome have recently reignited their spat over Italy’s high levels of debt, with the country’s deputy prime minister Matteo Salvini yesterday calling on the ECB to “guarantee” countries’ debt to keep borrowing costs low.

Alaska Natives protesting Dakota Access pipeline share mixed views on oil

Posted On Aug 24 2021 by

first_imgShare this story: Alaska Native Arts & Culture | Alaska Native Government & Policy | Alaska’s Energy Desk | Environment | HealthAlaska Natives protesting Dakota Access pipeline share mixed views on oilSeptember 10, 2016 by Elizabeth Harball, Alaska’s Energy Desk Share:Demonstrators in downtown Anchorage protest the Dakota Access pipeline. (Photo by Elizabeth Harball/Alaska Public Media)About 60 demonstrators gathered in downtown Anchorage Saturday afternoon to sing, dance and carry signs. Many Alaska Native people were there to support North Dakota’s Standing Rock Sioux tribe in their fight against the Dakota Access oil pipeline.The Standing Rock Sioux tribe is afraid the pipeline could contaminate their water; the developer claims the pipeline is the safest way to carry the oil. The tribe’s protests have gained national attention.Late last week, the Obama administration paused the development of the pipeline following the tribe’s protests.The demonstrators in Anchorage said the pipeline developer isn’t listening to the Standing Rock Sioux’s voices. But because oil is such a big part of Alaska’s economy, some demonstrators also said protesting the North Dakota pipeline wasn’t as simple as being for or against oil.Kelli Reed organized the demonstration.“This demonstration is not opposed to oil,” said Reed. “Oil production on the North Slope has been very beneficial for Native Alaskans who live up there. However, what we are objecting to is a silencing of the voice of a people called the Lakota Sioux.”Gregory Nothstine, a member of the Native Village of Wales, said he supports the Standing Rock Sioux because he feels Native rights are often ignored. But he’s okay with oil development if it’s done responsibly.“Being for or against the oil pipelines here in Alaska? They’ve been providing revenues for our state for years,” Nothstine said.Ada Coyle and her daughter Ashley Doctolero were at the demonstration; Doctolero was wearing the traditional regalia of the Kodiak Island’s Sugpiaq people. Coyle said protecting water should be the number one priority.“You can’t drink or eat money, but the water is there,” said Coyle. “We need it to drink, we need it to cook with, shower with, to cleanse us, you know?”last_img read more

CDB Needs to be Transformed – Finance Minister

Posted On Jun 17 2021 by

first_imgRelatedCDB Needs to be Transformed – Finance Minister FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Given the growing needs of the region, the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) should be systematically transformed, in order to make the kind of targeted and effective contribution which is relevant to the countries at this time.This was emphasized by Minister of Finance and Planning, Dr. Omar Davies, while delivering the opening remarks at the 36th Annual Meeting of the Board of Governors of the CDB, at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Montego Bay today (May 17).“At a time when regional economies are facing tremendous challenges to transform, to become competitive, and to reduce poverty, last year’s performance of the bank, in which only 15 loans were approved amounting to just over US$146 million, for both the public and private sectors, we must characterize this as inadequate,” he said.Dr. Davies, who is also Chairman of the Board of Governors of the CDB, pointed out that the inadequacy was highlighted even further, considering the fact that one of those loans accounted for 35 per cent of the total loan approvals for the period.He emphasized that while the fiscal pressures and debt constraints of some of the borrowing members of the CDB were readily recognized, the Bank needed to find creative ways to assist those borrowing countries to improve their absorptive capacity.Pointing out that the net transfer of resources from the CDB to its borrowing member countries decreased to US$20.4 million in 2005, compared with US$122.4 million in 2004, the Minister said that with all adjustments taken into consideration, that level of resource transfer was inadequate.The Chairman suggested that the Bank, in its present role in the design of the Regional Development Fund, play a more active part in balancing the interest of the various contributors and likely beneficiaries, given its special knowledge of the economic situation of the countries of the region.He said that even as much thought is being given to the desired size of the Fund, sight must not be lost on the fundamental issue of the absorptive capacity of the potential beneficiaries.The CDB was established in 1969, and began operations in January 1970. Its present membership consists of 25 regional and five non-regional members.The 36th annual meeting of the Board of Governors being held in Montego Bay between May 17 and 18 is the fourth time that the institution is holding its annual Board meeting in Jamaica.

Think a client is contemplating suicide? What are your ethical obligations?

Posted On Jun 12 2021 by

first_imgThink a client is contemplating suicide? What are your ethical obligations? Your client disclosed that he or she is contemplating suicide—what do you do? First, the lawyer must determine whether the client is serious about the suicide threat. The website for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline lists the following warning signs:• Talking about wanting to die or to kill themselves• Looking for a way to kill themselves, like searching online or buying a gun• Talking about feeling hopeless or having no reason to live• Talking about feeling trapped or in unbearable pain• Talking about being a burden to others• Increasing the use of alcohol or drugs• Acting anxious or agitated; behaving recklessly• Sleeping too little or too much• Withdrawing or isolating themselves• Showing rage or talking about seeking revenge• Extreme mood swingsIf the lawyer feels that the client is not serious about the threat of suicide, or the threat is not imminent, the lawyer must keep the disclosure confidential under Rule 4-1.6. In such instances, this may be an opportunity for the lawyer to suggest that the client seek professional mental healthcare.Should the lawyer feel that the client is seriously contemplating imminent suicide, the lawyer may ask the client for consent to disclose the client’s intent. However, there may be instances in which asking the client for consent to disclose the client’s intent may not be practicable or may serve to expedite the client’s plan to commit suicide.If the lawyer believes that the client is serious in his or her intent to commit suicide imminently, under Rule 4-1.6(b), the “lawyer must reveal confidential information to the extent the lawyer reasonably believes necessary [ ] to prevent a death or substantial bodily harm [ ].” Any disclosure the lawyer makes must be narrowly tailored to release the bare minimum of information under subdivision (f) of the same rule. The lawyer should determine with whom this information is shared. Perhaps the lawyer can communicate with a family member, reach out to the client’s physician, or contact law enforcement.If the lawyer makes a disclosure, the lawyer or client may feel that a conflict has arisen regarding further representation of the client. If a conflict was created by the lawyer’s disclosure, the lawyer should terminate representation pursuant to Rule 4-1.16. On termination of representation, the lawyer must protect the client’s interests under subdivision (d) of the same rule.Whether the lawyer determines disclosure is unnecessary because the client does not appear serious or whether the lawyer determines disclosure is required, best practice is for the lawyer to document the decisions made and their basis.Ethics Opinions from other Jurisdictions:Alaska Ethics Opinion 2005-1 (2005). Lawyer representing client charged with felony may disclose to authorities the client’s intent to commit suicide rather than be incarcerated because the lawyer believes the client cannot act in the client’s own interests under 1.14.Arizona Ethics Opinion 91-18 (1991). Lawyer may disclose client’s intent to commit suicide to a psychologist, counselor, or other appropriate person.Virginia Legal Ethics Opinion 560 (1984). “It is not improper for an attorney to disclose to appropriate mental health authorities the stated intentions of a client to leave the state and commit suicide.”Suicide Prevention Resources: (8255) Dec 15, 2020 By Heather Savage Telfer Assistant Bar Ethics Counsel Top Storieslast_img read more

Despite hindsight, Watson not sweating RC picks

Posted On May 31 2021 by

first_imgATLANTA – Tom Watson didn’t appear to be kicking himself. On the day after Billy Horschel posted his 12th straight round in the 60s, won his second straight tournament against a world-class field and picked up an additional $10 million bonus as the FedEx Cup champion, Watson was kicking back in his seat at a Kansas City Royals game. The 65-year-old Ryder Cup captain wore a Royals cap and a constant grin as he watched Omar Infante work the count to 2-0 in the bottom of the fifth inning. These questions will follow Watson and his American team to Gleneagles next week for the Ryder Cup: Does he wish he could have Horschel on his team? Should the deadline to make his selections have been pushed back? It makes for an easy – if not lazy – narrative. Hindsight allows for that. Horschel not only won the final two FedEx Cup playoff events, he beat the top qualifier from each Ryder Cup team – Bubba Watson at Cherry Hills and Rory McIlroy at East Lake. It was McIlroy who said at the Tour Championship, ”I’m sure Tom Watson is kicking himself at the minute.” Adding to the debate is that Horschel was runner-up in the event that preceded his back-to-back wins. Tiger Woods is the only other player to have two wins in a runner-up finish in the FedEx Cup. Then again, Horschel is not Tiger Woods. Watson made his wild-card picks after the Deutsche Bank Championship, where Horschel was in prime position to force a playoff with Chris Kirk until he chunked a 6-iron so badly on the par-5 18th hole that it landed in the front of the hazard protecting the green. No one would have suggested Horschel as a pick the next day. So why was the deadline set so early for the picks? Remember, for years the American captain made his selections the day after the PGA Championship, six weeks before the Ryder Cup matches. Thanks to Paul Azinger, the U.S. captain now gets an extra three weeks to find the hot hands. Why not extend it through the Tour Championship? If that’s the case, why not wait until the final week to determine the entire team? This is not about uniforms, programs or any propaganda. This about a team, one that should know who is on the side with ample time to prepare leading to the matches. Four straight playoff events caused enough fatigue as it was. Besides, would anyone be talking about an early deadline if McIlroy, Jim Furyk or Jason Day had won the Tour Championship? And who’s to say Watson would have taken Horschel even if he could have waited? Watson said he was looking for the hot hand and still passed over Kirk the day after his victory at the Deutsche Bank Championship. Watson was looking for experience. He wanted Keegan Bradley and Webb Simpson all along. He would have preferred Brandt Snedeker as the third pick, except that Snedeker missed the cut at both playoff events. Hunter Mahan, who has played on two teams, won The Barclays and became an obvious selection, and then Simpson won out over Kirk. As good as Horschel looks now, how can anyone project how he would have played in Scotland? Two years ago, Snedeker looked like a great captain’s pick when he won the FedEx Cup. He went 1-2 at the Ryder Cup. Snedeker wasn’t at his best that week. He blocked a tee shot on the 18th hole that led to bogey in foursomes and cost the Americans at least a half point. On the final day, he bogeyed three straight holes against Paul Lawrie and suffered the worst defeat of any singles match. Woods was a captain’s pick in 2010. He was coming off the upheaval in his personal life, split with his swing coach and failed to qualify for the Tour Championship. He had gone seven straight tournaments without a top 10, and he failed to break 70 in 19 of his last 25 rounds. Woods went 3-1 at Celtic Manor, his best Ryder Cup performance. Horschel will be cheering from home. His big finish will put even more scrutiny on the captain’s picks than they already have. And that will lead to another round of hindsight, unless the Americans can find a way to win. Maybe it was a good sign that the Royals rallied with two runs in the bottom of the ninth to win Monday night. As for Infante? He struck out swinging.last_img read more

Cheetahs coach cautions over summer temperatures

Smith took to the field with the Cheetahs in a fixture against the Reds 10 years ago in 35-degree conditions in Bloemfontein.‘After the game, Juan passed out in the dressing room due to heat exhaustion,’ Fourie said. ‘Since that day in 2010 steps were taken that games played in such warm conditions shouldn’t commence before 4pm.’Full StoryPhoto: Seb Daly/Sportsfile via Getty Images ‘ Post by SA Rugby magazine Cheetahs head coach Hawies Fourie Posted in Currie Cup, Super Rugby, Top headlines Cheetahs coach cautions over summer temperatures Published on September 4, 2020 熱門話題對肚腩脂肪感到後悔!試了在萬寧賣的這個後…熱門話題|SponsoredSponsoredUndo From the magazine: Jano Vermaak names his Perfect XVFormer Springbok, Bulls, Lions and Stormers scrumhalf Jano Vermaak names a team of the best he played alongside and against.SA Rugby MagUndoLife Exact BrazilGrace Jones Is Now 72 Years Old, This Is Her NowLife Exact Brazil|SponsoredSponsoredUndoCNAHow is life for Cambodian boy linguist after viral fame?CNA|SponsoredSponsoredUndoBuzzAura16 Cancer Causing Foods You Probably Eat Every DayBuzzAura|SponsoredSponsoredUndoShop Bras Online | Search AdsBrilliant Bra and Panty Sets (take a look)Shop Bras Online | Search Ads|SponsoredSponsoredUndoGoGoPeak10 Most Beautiful Cities You Should Visit Once In Your LifetimeGoGoPeak|SponsoredSponsoredUndocenter_img Shop Bras Online | Search AdsTake a Look at These Bra and Panty SetsShop Bras Online | Search Ads|SponsoredSponsoredUndo Five one-cap Boks that could still represent South AfricaSA Rugby MagUndo  315  20 MoneyMorningPaperThe 10 Richest Families Of The World.
