The 72-year-old ex-ship’s steward, who is campaigning to become party treasurer, said Labour needed to find smarter and more cost-effective ways to take on the cash-rich Conservatives. In an implicit criticism of former leaders Tony Blair and Gordon Brown, Prescott told the Scottish Parliament’s Festival of Politics: “The politics of organisation are equally important as the politics of ideas.

City reacts to new FSA remuneration code

No InstallTaonga: The Island Farm Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULL Share whatsapp FINANCIAL services firms are now subject to the world’s toughest bank bonus curbs after City regulator the Financial Services Authority published its new remuneration code.But the new rules, which will affect 2,700 financial firms in the UK from January, will not be binding for many smaller institutions and more specialist financiers.The new code bans guaranteed bonuses of more than one year, and specifies that up to 60 per cent of variable pay must be deferred when rewarding the most serious risk takers. Senior risk takers face a cash cap on bonuses of 20 per cent and at least half of all non-deferred bonuses must be paid in shares. It also stipulates that an appropriate ratio of variable to fixed pay should be set by firms, but gives no specific guidance on this. But of four tiers of firms outlined in the code, those in tiers three and four – small banks and building societies, and firms that do not put their balance sheets at risk – may be exempt from many of the stricter rules.“The most significant of these are the requirement to have a UK-based remuneration committee, deferral, and the proportion of variable remuneration paid in shares. For other rules, the FSA will apply a discretionary approach that is likely to result in less-onerous requirements,” the FSA said.The move means that many investment managers and businesses operating an agency model will escape the specific requirements to defer remuneration and pay bonuses in shares, said PriceWaterhouseCoopers.But larger banks will be forced to rein in their remuneration substantially from January, just as the 2010 bonus round gets under way.The British Bankers’ Association hit back at the news, saying the financial services sector contributes significant tax revenues and UK banks should not be put at a competitive disadvantage to rivals outside Europe.“Until there is a genuinely global consensus on pay in financial services, the challenge for policymakers will be to ensure the UK continues to attract this valuable business,” it said in a statement.Jon Terry, remuneration partner at PriceWaterhouseCoopers said: “Retaining talent in a sector where financial reward is often the main motivator and workers are internationally mobile will be more challenging than ever. “It remains to be seen how London’s lure as Europe’s dominant financial centre will be affected as the reality of the pay changes begins to bite.”The code aims to align remuneration principles across the EU and reflects the changes set out by its Committee of European Banking Supervisors last week. whatsapp City reacts to new FSA remuneration code last_img read more

This week, I’m taking a look at three of this week’s Top 10 shows on Netflix to let you know if they do the trick.First up, we have “Extraction,” a tough-as-nails, gritty action thriller starring Chris Hemsworth of “Thor” fame as an Australian mercenary hired to rescue the teenage son of an Indian drug lord who’s been kidnapped by a rival Bangaldeshi drug kingpin. Produced by Joe and Anthony Russo, who co-directed the last two “Avengers” movies, and written by Joe based on the brothers’ graphic novel “Ciudad,” this is a surprisingly dark flick filled with wall-to-wall shootouts, car and foot chases and a nearly exhausting amount of hand-to-hand combat. Yet it still pays enough attention to the characters’ backstories and emotions to work on a deeper level as well.The movie kicks off with Tyler Rake (Hemsworth) called in to find, extract and return teenager Ovi (Rudhraksh Jaiswal) on the orders of his imprisoned father. Tyler works with an ace support team that quickly gets him in to nab the kid, but in time-honored action-movie tradition, things go haywire when the kidnapper’s army of henchmen screw up the escape plan.When Tyler’s main partner learns that Ovi’s dad has no intention of paying for the rescue, she advises him to ditch the kid and just get himself back to safety. But Tyler’s innate moral code, and the fact that he lost his young son to illness years before, won’t let him do that and thus an intense series of action-packed escapes ensues.“Extraction” is the number one program on Netflix this week, a testament to the fact you can’t go wrong putting a big-name star into the center of thousands of explosions if you want to give people mindless fun. But filled with all manner of gnarly gunshot wounds, stabbings and killings with numerous other sharp objects, “Extraction” might deliver excitement for adults but is definitely too brutal for Hemsworth’s legion of younger Marvel fans.Netflix scored a huge coup last year when it premiered “Our Planet,” the latest in David Attenborough’s long string of spectacular nature specials and series. It’s found another intriguing nature series now with the new series “Earth at Night,” which uses the latest highly sensitive camera technology to shine a spotlight on the planet’s wildlife after dark for the first time.There’s an inherent fascination in seeing lions and leopards on the prowl, seen as clearly as in daylight despite being illuminated only by moonlight. Heat vision cameras also bring other creatures including hippos and giraffes to life in the dark, closing the gap that’s always occurred due to the fact that even a full moon is still 400,000 times dimmer than sunlight.Other episodes focus on the fascinating worlds deep within oceans or inside jungles around the planet, but one episode I particularly enjoyed shows how wildlife exists in cities around the globe. Examples include elephants that have to cross modern African cities to get to their traditional grazing lands on the other side and thousands of Vaux’s Swift birds swarming into one giant industrial chimney in Portland, Oregon to sleep as a substitute for their usual resting perches inside hollow trees.This isn’t as spectacular as “Our Planet,” since there are few if any actual shots of animals actually managing to make the kill compared with that standard-bearing nature series. And while actress Samara Wiley does a competent job narrating, no one could match the magic of Attenborough’s rich British tones. But it’s still worth a look if you want to see wildlife from a distinctly different perspective.Finally, I checked out the pilot of “Outer Banks,” which has risen to take the #2 spot on Netflix’s top programs with its mix of teen angst and treasure-seeking adventure. Focusing on four working-class teens named JJ, John B, Pope and Kiara in a coastal town called Outer Banks that’s divided strongly between the rich and poor, it follows what happens when the main foursome crash their rinky-dink boat into a $500,000 luxury boat that capsized and disappeared amid a hurricane the night before.When John B dives in to check out the wreck, he discovers a key to a local motel room that has tons of cash and a gun stashed in its safe. Things turn even more mysterious when a pair of local cops show up to root through the safe as well, and the boat’s owner – a normally broke townie named Scooter, whose ability to own a luxury boat doesn’t make sense – washes up dead in a nearby marsh.Most unusual of all is the fact that John B’s father, a local fisherman, disappeared nine months before after telling his son that he had found something and might have to vanish. What slowly becomes clear to the viewers, at least, is that there’s a giant ship that vanished in 1829 with $400 million in gold aboard it, and signs point to the fact that everyone involved is about to become involved in its discovery and a life-or-death battle to claim the treasure.“Banks” builds momentum as the pilot unfolds, with an action-packed trailer portending major adventures ahead. Unfortunately, the lead actors don’t have quite the same spark as other teen hits from “Dawson’s Creek” through “Riverdale,” which impacts the likability of the show, but it still marks solid fun for that demo and anyone looking for some escapism amid the mundane horrors of Coronavirus lockdown.

Task Force Wants to Reopen Los Angeles County on July 4

first_img Community News STAFF REPORT Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy On Tuesday, the Los Angeles County Economic Resiliency Task Force expressed a goal for the safe reopening of LA County as early as July 4.The meeting, chaired by Supervisor Kathryn Barger provided leaders from different business sectors with the opportunity to identify and discuss how the current crisis is affecting their industry.In addition, the Los Angeles Economic Development Corporation (LAEDC) presented its research findings on the highest risk sectors and jobs.Pasadena has its own health department and would not be obligated to open on July 4.“The economic and sociological impacts created by the COVID-19 shutdown have hurt our vulnerable populations the most,” Barger said in a prepared statement. “The county, in partnership with our task force members and key stakeholders, is prepared to move forward with recommendations that ensure the safety and well-being of employees and customers while safeguarding public health.”In his presentation, Bill Allen, president of LAEDC, confirmed there have been more than 1 million unemployment claims filed in the county to date. More than 75 percent of the projected job losses have an average annual earning of less than $50,000, with restaurants and retail industries hit the hardest.The Task Force sector leaders echoed the significant financial crisis each industry is facing, emphasizing that prolonged closures will continue to deteriorate the ability of most small businesses to reopen and will cause permanent loss of jobs and wages for millions throughout the county.The members expressed a commitment to develop plans to restart their industry and organizations, committing to protect the public health while minimizing ongoing sociological and economic impacts caused by existing restrictions.“I understand the urgency to reopen and know many of the experts the County has assembled for this Task Force have been working hard to develop safe and efficient plans to revitalize their sectors as early as next month,” Supervisor Barger said. “I remain focused on working with industry leaders and health officials to safely make way for Los Angeles County to reopen by the Fourth of July.”The July 4 date indicates a goal of the full or staged reopening of retail, restaurants, and malls. Sector leaders said many businesses and employees will be impacted over the next few weeks.The Economic Resiliency Task Force serves to develop actionable recommendations for the county to improve the economy, create jobs, and return to full employment.The Task Force meets bi-weekly on Tuesday mornings and was created by Supervisors Barger and Solis through a board motion unanimously adopted on April 28, 2020.

Biden: China should expect `extreme competition’ from US

first_img Twitter Facebook Pinterest WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden says China is in for “extreme competition” from the U.S. under his administration, but that the new relationship he wants to forge need not be one of conflict. In an interview broadcast Sunday, Biden acknowledged that he has yet to speak with Chinese President Xi Jinping since his inauguration Jan. 20, but noted that the two leaders had met many times when both men served their countries as vice president. “I know him pretty well,” Biden said in an excerpt of the interview aired Sunday by CBS’ “Face the Nation.” When they do speak, they will have “a whole lot to talk about,” Biden said. Biden appears to be concentrating his initial telephone diplomacy on U.S. allies. He so far has spoken with the leaders of Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Japan, South Korea, Australia and the NATO secretary-general. He also worked in a conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin. In the interview, Biden described Xi as “very bright” and “very tough” but without “a democratic, small D, bone in his body.” Shortly after Biden succeeded President Donald Trump in the White House, a spokesperson for China’s Foreign Ministry said that “after this very difficult and extraordinary time, both the Chinese and American people deserve a better future.” Beijing welcomed the Biden administration’s decision to remain in the World Health Organization and return to the Paris climate agreement. The new administration, however, is unlikely to significantly alter U.S. policies on trade, Taiwan, human rights and the South China Sea that have angered Xi’s increasingly assertive government. Biden, in the interview taped Friday, said he has said to Xi “ all along, that we need not have a conflict.” But, Biden added, there will be “extreme competition. And I’m not going to do it the way that he knows. And that’s because he’s sending signals as well.” Biden said he will not pursue U.S.-China relations in the way that Trump did but will focus on “international rules of the road.” TAGS  Pinterest Previous articleReagan’s longtime secretary of state George P.
