Ltd. In response to those comments, it has made a number of changes to the guidelines, it says, including reducing a proposed cap on underwriting levies from 5% to 2.5% (which will take effect April 1, 2015); excluding deposit notes from being considered a distribution of securities; and, clarifying the definition of revenue in the guidelines. IIROC also notes that both commenters recommended that the SRO review its framework for charging levies. In response, it says that it “will consider a framework review at a future date after evaluating the impact of these changes”; and, noting that such a review, “will take some time, and could have a significant impact on the allocation revenue IIROC receives (shifting more to fees and less from levies).” Share this article and your comments with peers on social media IIROC to scrap fee premium for “risky” firms The Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) Thursday published an updated version of its fee model guidance, which incorporates various changes recommended by the industry. The updated Fee Model Guidelines are intended to serve as a single reference for all of IIROC’s fees. It sets out the various aspects of the dealer and marketplace fee models, which comprise the majority of the fees that IIROC collects. The self-regulatory organization also collects a number of activity-based fees that are set out in various places in IIROC’s rules and by-laws; which are now collected in the guidelines.
Skilled Workers Leave for Work-Study in Canada Foreign AffairsJanuary 18, 2010 FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Thirteen auto service technicians departed the island on Saturday (Jan. 16) to take up training and job opportunities in Canada.The group represents the first set of skilled workers to benefit under an eight-month work-study programme, which is being facilitated by the Ministry of Labour and Social Security. Another group of 14 heavy duty mechanics are scheduled to depart on Saturday (Jan. 23).The auto service technicians will be trained at the Red River College in Manitoba, Canada, while the heavy duty mechanics will study at the College of North Atlantic in Newfoundland.Director of Manpower Services in the Ministry, Andrea Miller-Stennett, told JIS News that the group of 27 men underwent a rigorous examination process before they were selected for the programme. She explained that more than 100 individuals sat the exam, however many could not afford the tuition for the Canadian institutions.Mrs. Miller-Stennett further informed that at the end of the 32-week course, the Jamaicans will be able to sit the Red Seal Certification exam, which is Canada’s highest trade credential. This, she said, will allow them to work and live in the North American country.Minister of Labour and Social Security, Hon. Pearnel Charles on Friday (January 15) met with the 27-member group at his offices on North Street in Kingston for a short farewell ceremony.He said the send-off marked another success in the Ministry’s efforts to take advantage of overseas employment opportunities amid global economic challenges.The Labour Minister further encouraged the men to do their best to make Jamaica proud. “Every one of you is an ambassador for Jamaica and for the Ministry of Labour. Your performance will make us get more workers or none at all,” he told the prospective trainees.He also expressed his pride in the men’s dedication to improve themselves and encouraged them to continue striving for success. “Many men have sat under trees playing dominos for years, while you have been studying and working your way into a profession. It’s going to pay off,” he told them.He however cautioned that the road ahead would not be easy as they will be living and working in a foreign country and faced with situations to which they might not be accustomed.“There’s going to be moments of great sacrifice that you are going to be faced with, moments of discouragement, moments when you will wish you were home. But you have to understand that these are the challenges that you will face if you want good,” he said.The Minister also encouraged the men to remain responsible and to stay in close contact with their children and other family members through the Ministry’s family services programme.

Food Smart participant wins ultimate prize to reduce food waste Ballina Shire Council and North East Waste are thrilled that the winner of the recent Food Smart Freezer competition is also passionate about waste and recycling.Dianne Hardman from Ballina has won a 173L upright freezer for completing the Food Smart program and is commended for her ongoing efforts to reduce good food from being thrown away.When asked what motivated her to sign up to Food Smart, Dianne highlighted that despite her efforts in waste avoidance and recycling, things were not going to plan when it came to food in her fridge and pantry.“I had the best intentions of eating well, but I noticed how much food kept going into my organics bin – broccoli I didn’t get to in time, herbs and lettuce that had gone limp and soggy. When I saw the opportunity to sign up to Food Smart, I knew it could help make a difference. Plus I really needed a freezer as well, so was hoping to win it!” Dianne said.“The Food Smart program provided me with easy tips and hints that has really helped me manage my food better at home. I plan my meals a lot better now, and that influences what and how much I shop. Also, the storage tips are fantastic – I now know how to store herbs and veggies to keep them fresher for longer. I am much more conscious of what I do when it comes to food.”Council’s Waste Education Officer, Ms Samala Heart, said the Northern Rivers is just one of four regions across NSW stepping up to reduce food waste.“About $10 billion worth of good food is thrown away every year by NSW households. That’s an average of $3,800 a year per household,” she explained.Food Smart provides practical, easy ways to reduce food waste and save money. It guides participants through a step-by-step process to make lasting changes at home and provides bite-sized motivating emails with free recipes, meal plan ideas, storage tips and the chance to join some fantastic free workshops.The free Food Smart Program is open to households in the Ballina, Byron, Clarence Valley, Kyogle, Lismore, Richmond Valley and Tweed local government areas.

RelatedMinistry of National Security Launches Campaign to Maintain Peace FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Police continue to implore road users to exercise greater caution and care when traversing the nation’s streets, particularly during the holiday season.Their insistence comes as 2014 draws to a close with Jamaica recording over 300 road fatalities, for the second consecutive year.The Police have been responding to the alarming frequency of the fatalities by heightening their public education campaign, through dialogue and other interactions with various road users, all of which are aimed at re-orientating persons with the proper usage of the roads.This has been complemented by stringent enforcement of sanctions under the Road Traffic Act, as the police seek to discourage wanton disregard for law and order on the streets.Head of the Jamaica Constabulary Force’s (JCF) Traffic and Highway Division, Senior Superintendent Calvin Allen, is again lamenting the inappropriate manner in which he says motorists, pedal cyclists, motor-cyclists, and pedestrians continue to use the roads.“Excessive speeding and pedestrian error are among the main factors resulting in the number of fatalities we have recorded. A lot of our pedestrians are using the streets in somewhat of a carefree manner and a lot of our motorists are just driving without exercising due care in how they operate and manage their vehicles,” he tells JIS News.SSP Allen says the matter is worsened, particularly during the festive season, by excessive alcohol consumption, especially by motorists and, to some extent, pedestrians, which often impairs their faculties resulting in poor judgment calls while on the roads, which, unfortunately, leads injuries being sustained, or death.While not wishing to dampen the holiday spirit and festivities, the senior officer says the police have, nonetheless, significantly heightened their vigilance of the roadways over the season.He informs that officers are monitoring the streets to as best as is possible, prevent further mishaps which could result from, among other things, excessive alcohol consumption.The legal alcohol limit for motorists is 35 microgrammes per 100 millilitres of breath or 80 milligrammes per 100 millilitres of blood.“Motorists should not drink, if they intend to drive…and they should not drive if they drink. Those persons should, instead, make alternative transportation arrangements rather than risk injury or mishap to themselves, and others. If a motorist is deemed to have exceeded the allowable limit, he or she will be charged…and if they repeat the offence, there will be greater consequences, including suspension of their driver license for a period to be determine,” he warns, while advising that the lawmen will be also be monitoring the party spots over the period to ensure that law and order is maintained.SSP Allen also urges parents, whose children plan to attend parties, to arrange for them to be transported to and from the venue and destinations, rather than allowing them to drive themselves.“It is better for you (parents) to get a call from them to say they are ready to be picked up, rather than to receive a call from the police to say that your child has committed a traffic violation, or worse….” he stresses.In relation to the ongoing public education campaign, SSP Allen tells JIS News that members of the Traffic Division have been engaging motorists, pedestrians and other stakeholders in dialogue on how best the police can work with them to reduce carnage in the roads.“We have been very meticulous in how we conduct our engagements, using data collated to guide us, in this regard. We are not just resorting to enforcement of the law, but we are seeking to educate the persons. We have focused on schools, and we have also engaged private and public entities and some community groups in our education efforts,” he advises.SSP Allen points out that the public’s feedback has been positive, with interaction facilitating an exchange of ideas on how best all of the stakeholders can to achieve the one common goal of making the roadways safer for everyone.In this regard, SSP Allen says his long term long term vision is to see a situation emerging where every road user is “finally and fully abreast and knowledgeable of “the crucial role we all play to make our streets safer.”“The efforts of the Traffic Division will continue, as this is part of our overall vision to continue to educate, inform, and enforce, so that the overall strategic priorities of the JCF can be fully realized,” he states.In this regard, SSP Allen is expressing gratitude to the various public and private sector stakeholders which have supported the Traffic Division’s engagements.Chief among these are: the Transport, Works, and Housing Ministry, specifically the Road Safety Unit; National Road Safety Council (NRSC); and Jamaica National Building Society (JNBS).SSP Allen points out that the inputs of these and other stakeholders, “we aim to build a professional Traffic Division that offers quality service to our citizens in order make our streets safe to be used by all through high visibility presence, public education, and community and stakeholder interaction.”The engagements, he adds, will be further heightened, come 2015, as the Traffic Division seeks to play its part in effectively reducing road fatalities.

Beware the cashier’s check scam Sep 08, 2020 Top Stories Keep your guard up. The old cashier’s check scam is making the rounds, again.The Florida Bar has been contacted recently by a number of members who said they interacted with “clients” who turned out to be con men. The scams were sniffed out before any money was lost, but the details are quite familiar.The lawyers were initially contacted via email or phone to resolve a contract dispute or collections matter. Soon after engagement, the opposing party capitulates, a large cashier’s check shows up at the office — often written on a foreign bank — with instructions asking the check be deposited in the lawyer’s trust account and the cash be immediately wired to the client, minus the lawyer’s fee. Of course, the check is no good and if money is wired away, the lawyer is stuck holding the bag.The latest reports to the Bar involved scammers representing themselves as Canadian businessmen “Jeffrey Donald” and “William James” involving a “$1.3 million loan” and “Nathan Hubert” of England who made a “$380,000 loan” to a “family friend” who won’t pay it back. In the second scenario, “Hubert” said he was referred to the attorney by a “Florida bar association rep.”In a 2018 column in the News, Florida Bar Orlando Branch Auditor Matthew Herdeker said attorney trust accounts are attractive targets because they often hold substantial amounts of money and perpetrators hope the attorney will assume the cashier’s check will clear and disburse the funds before the bank dishonors the instrument.Herdeker says attorneys should be aware of the following red flags in this type of scheme:• Cashier’s checks drawn on foreign banks. Fraudsters use these because it takes banks longer to determine that foreign instruments are fake. They hope to persuade the account holder to disburse against the funds before the bank dishonors the check.• Request for funds to be wired to a foreign country. The purported client will claim a medical emergency or some other immediate need, hoping to receive the funds before the bank or the attorney discovers the scheme. Funds wired out of the country are more difficult to recover.• No face-to-face contact. The “client” and other parties to the scheme communicate only by email, phone, or text message. They claim to be out of town or very busy.• Email addresses designed to look legitimate. Scammers create email addresses that appear to be associated with actual companies, but are spelled a little differently. A search of the domain name at Whois (www.Whois.com) will reveal the date the domain was registered. If the “client” created an email address just before using it to hire an attorney, it’s suspicious.• The client does not pay upfront. The client instructs the attorney to deduct his or her fee from the proceeds of the cashier’s check. The fee may be substantial, for doing little more than writing a letter or drafting a contract.
HomeNewsCrimeVeteran arrested after planning to bomb Long Beach, Santa Monica Pier Apr. 29, 2019 at 12:59 pmCrimeFeaturedNewsVeteran arrested after planning to bomb Long Beach, Santa Monica PierMadeleine Pauker2 years agoLAPDlong beachmark steven domingoSanta Monica Pier A U.S. Army veteran was arrested Friday after authorities discovered he was allegedly plotting to bomb one of several locations in Southern California including Long Beach, the Santa Monica Pier, Huntington Beach and Los Angeles freeways as revenge for last month’s mass shooting at a New Zealand mosque.Authorities had been monitoring Mark Steven Domingo, a 26-year-old San Fernando Valley resident, because he had allegedly posted online about gathering materials to build a bomb and planning to carry out attacks on Christians, Jews and police officers as retribution for the Christchurch shooting, according to a Department of Justice press release. He decided to detonate a bomb at a white nationalist rally scheduled to take place in Long Beach this past weekend.Domingo, who returned from a deployment in Afghanistan in 2013, also considered another rally in Huntington Beach, Santa Monica Pier and Los Angeles freeways as back-up targets, according to court documents.“Domingo said the Huntington Beach rally would be on the beach, which make it more difficult to kill as many people because it was a wide open space,” the court documents said. “Domingo said the Santa Monica Pier would provide a better space for an attack, particularly during the summer when it was crowded, because it was a more enclosed space and people would not be able to escape from a blast. Domingo said that detonating an IED with a timer on the Santa Monica Pier would cause a lot of casualties.”During one meeting with investigators, Domingo said he would bring a gun to the pier in the event of an attack and was willing to martyr himself.“Domingo showed the (undercover operative) a map of the Santa Monica Pier on his phone, and pointed out locations where they could stand near the entrance of the pier,” the court documents said.Domingo decided to proceed with his plan to bomb the Long Beach rally last week. He asked an undercover FBI operative to find a bomb-maker and purchased several hundred nails to be used as shrapnel inside the bomb. On Friday evening, the operative delivered multiple inert devices, which Domingo believed were weapons of mass destruction, according to the press release. Domingo inspected the devices and traveled to the location of the rally in Long Beach, where he was taken into custody.The white nationalist rally did not materialize Sunday morning because counterprotesters occupied Bluff Park, where it was supposed to take place.Domingo was charged with providing and attempting to provide material support to terrorists. He is expected to make his initial appearance this afternoon in United States District Court.“The individual charged in this case wanted to carry out a mass casualty attack with explosive devices, and he moved very quickly from talking about violence to mobilizing to commit such an attack,” said assistant director Michael McGarrity of the FBI’s counterterrorism section. “This case should remind the public of the need to be vigilant and notify law enforcement if you see suspicious behavior.”At a press conference Monday, investigators said Domingo came on their radar shortly before the Christchurch shooting. He expressed support for violent jihad and ISIS in different chatrooms, said Ryan Young, the FBI’s special agent in charge of the investigation. Young said authorities discovered several semi-automatic guns, large amounts of ammunition and multiple large fireworks at Domingo’s Reseda home.“Our biggest fear is this, which is what we call a rapid radicalization and mobilization of violence,” Young said. “People ask us what keeps us up at night. This is a case that keeps us up at night.”This article was updated Apr. 29 at 1:36 [email protected] :LAPDlong beachmark steven domingoSanta Monica Piershare on Facebookshare on Twitteradd a commentPersian restaurant expands with second location downtownLOS ANGELES – Man vows to proceed with California clergy abuse lawsuitYou Might Also LikeFeaturedNewsBobadilla rejects Santa Monica City Manager positionMatthew Hall8 hours agoFeaturedNewsProtesting parents and Snapchat remain in disagreement over child protection policiesClara Harter19 hours agoFeaturedNewsDowntown grocery to become mixed use developmenteditor19 hours agoNewsBruised but unbowed, meme stock investors are back for moreAssociated Press19 hours agoNewsWedding boom is on in the US as vendors scramble to keep upAssociated Press19 hours agoNewsCouncil picks new City ManagerBrennon Dixson19 hours ago

For us at Ericsson, it’s equally important to get involved now as we will be part of the standardisation process due to complete at the end of 2016.”Laxdal said it was now up to the operators to “also join the discussion over the next 18 months, identify what the requirements are and then start to work towards delivering the technology. 4G was the same. The Asian operators started early, then the US players really began to define what was required for it to launch.”Both Laxdal and fellow panellist Matt Grob, EVP and CTO at Qualcomm, said they wanted to see “5G make a big step” from existing 4G, meaning the introduction of a brand new air interface, “which will support both high speed and internet of things”, added Grob.The Qualcomm executive said the company has been working on 5G for years, but “much more so in the past year”, while stating the US commitment to boosting LTE coverage through new spectrum types, multicast, broadcast and peer to peer would in the end “serve as pre-cursors to 5G”.“Those are the many elements that we are set to see with 5G, so in North America we are developing 5G type technology today, and we are going to be able to do trials and early deployments with whoever wants to go faster. We however have the timeframes in place because we don’t want to quickly adapt from 4G. There is still a lot of life left in 4G.”Also on the panel was ZTE’s VP, CTO team, Sean Cai, who said the gap between 4G and 5G remained big, warning that despite a scheduled 2020 launch “5G is still not defined at all”.He believes the eventual winners emerging from the race to introduce 5G first could actually be those that adopt the technology in the second or third tier, making the market more competitive by evolving the technology.“The wave of innovation comes from someone behind, and it could even be the vendors. You look at how to upgrade the first network and move it forward.” AT&T committed to disruption through mobile Kavit joined Mobile World Live in May 2015 as Content Editor.

Tone Bachke, currently head of group treasury (pictured, right), was named replacement CFO.In a statement, Telenor president and CEO Sigve Brekke said: “Asia continues to be a growth engine for Telenor Group. The development of the region has led to increasingly similar maturity levels across the markets, which has diminished many of the differences between our two clusters.”Telenor’s operations in the region are currently split into Developed Asia and Emerging Asia clusters. Digi CEO Albern Murty and Telenor Pakistan CEO Irfan Khan, will relinquish their respective roles as head of those units, but retain the executive positions at the individual operator businesses.Brekked added uniting the clusters into a single Asia unit and building a stronger presence would leave Telenor “well-equipped to fully realise the potential across the region and seize opportunities for growth”.Rostrup will report directly to Brekke and be based at a regional hub in Singapore. He will work with the CEOs of Telenor’s five operating companies in Bangladesh, Malaysia, Myanmar, Pakistan and Thailand.He said he sees great potential to bring the Asian clusters together as “one strong team with a mandate to explore the potential across our markets, and to actively engage with the business environments in the region”.
