Trump finalises plans to allow oil drilling in Arctic Wildlife Refuge

Oil and gas drilling to be allowed in Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (Getty Images) “President Trump’s leadership brought more than three decades of inaction to an end,” Bernhard said. Show Comments ▼ He added that the plan had been “carefully tailored” to minimise the impact on the surrounding environment. The 1.6m acre coastal plain at the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge will be leased to the highest bidder in a move that sees US President Donald Trump continue to ignore calls to tackle climate change. whatsapp Trump to allow oil drilling in Arctic National Wildlife Refuge for first time in 30 years Monday 17 August 2020 6:04 pm Interior Secretary David Bernhardt defended the decision by saying it followed through on the 2017 budget bill that instructed the federal government to conduct oil and gas leasing on the refuge. The Trump administration today finalised plans to auction off the rights to drill for oil and gas in one of the country’s most iconic wild places. The federal government are required to conduct two lease sales of 400,000 acres each before the end of 2024 under that 2017 law. “I am confident that we can move forward quite promptly after this decision is rendered,” he said.

‘Team Bobbi’ members shave their heads for Ketchikan woman

first_imgHealth | Southeast‘Team Bobbi’ members shave their heads for Ketchikan womanDecember 20, 2017 by Leila Kheiry, KRBD-Ketchikan Share:Don Harrington, left, Licha Kelley-King, Phong Nguyen, Kessinger and Virgil Panchle, seated, shaved their heads in support of Bobbi Kessinger. (Photo by Leila Kheiry/KRBD)Like millions of others worldwide, a Ketchikan woman is facing months of treatment after she was diagnosed with breast cancer.But, she’s not facing it alone.Co-workers and clients at Rendezvous Senior Day Center shaved their heads in solidarity with operations manager Bobbi Kessinger.Until very recently, Bobbi Kessinger had long, luxurious, flowing chestnut locks. Her hair went all the way past her knees.After she found a lump and was diagnosed with breast cancer in October, she said she asked three times if they were sure she’d lose her hair during cancer treatment.“And they said yes. Each time it was yes,” she said. “I said, ‘I’m going to take the first stand and beat it to the punch.’”So, she shaved it all off.It was a way of taking control, Kessinger said. But she started a movement of sorts.Her husband shaved his head, too. And some friends.And some of the seniors who come to the center every day.And her co-workers – including her boss, Licha Kelley-King.Kelley-King said a couple of them had told Kessinger early on that they would join her if she decided to shave her head. But they didn’t expect so many others to join in.“There were nine of us who shaved our heads for Bobbi on the same day. … It was a wonderful party,” she said. “Everyone in the center got involved, whether they shaved their heads or not, they were cheering her on and I think making Bobbi realize that she’s not alone, that there’s lots of people who love her and support her.”Kelley-King said many of the seniors who come to Rendezvous depend on Kessinger to help them with various tasks, and she goes way beyond her job description to provide that help.And, now they’re showing their gratitude – providing emotional support during Kessinger’s cancer treatment.So, how does it feel to go from Rapunzel-length hair to a buzz cut?“Actually it feels good,” Kessinger said. “It’s easy to take care of. I keep thinking, I should have done this years ago. What was I thinking? The only thing is getting acclimated. Getting used to the outside. (It’s a) little chilly.”Kelley-King agrees it’s colder without hair, adding that it feels particularly weird in the shower.They also get looks. And questions.“It’s funny when somebody comes in here and there’s several of us in here and we all have shaved heads,” Kelley-King said. “People’s eyes go like….. What kind of weird cult is this?”But, that gives Kessinger an opportunity to spread a message. She wants to encourage people to get regular checkups.“I don’t go to the doctor. It took me 20 years to go, and it took this to go to the doctor,” she said. “Mammograms – you only have to get every two years or so. And it’s nothing. A little squeeze. But you could catch it early.”Kessinger said her first mammogram was Oct. 31 – Halloween. She showed up dressed as Pippi Longstocking.Kelley-King said another message they want to spread is: let people help. So many times, she said, people facing cancer, or any hardship, don’t want to reveal it even to loved ones.“You need to let people care about you and show you how they feel about you,” she said. “And I’m very grateful that Bobbi’s letting us do that.”Kessinger faces 16 weeks total of chemotherapy, followed by a lumpectomy. How that goes will determine the next steps. No matter what, though, she knows her friends are there for her.Share this story:last_img read more

The General Election voting franchise includes British, Irish and Commonwealth citizens over 18, but excludes European nationals living in the UK.  A Downing Street spokesperson said today: “Over two years ago, the Prime Minister made a commitment to give the British people a very simple choice in an EU referendum. He made clear then that this should not be on the basis of the status quo, but on a reformed relationship with the EU that the PM is determined to deliver.” While MPs in the House of Commons begin debating the referendum bill, however, the Prime Minister will be in the Hague meeting with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte before travelling to Paris to have talks with French President Francois Hollande. Tomorrow, Cameron will meet with Polish Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz in Warsaw before lunch with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin. Number 10 has said that the trip is part of the Prime Minister’s efforts to meet one-on-one with each of his 27 European counterparts ahead of the European Council meeting in June. Cameron will seek support from different countries on specific policy area reforms, including limiting benefits for migrant workers, exempting the UK from further “ever-closer” integration and securing the single market. The Prime Minister had planned on starting his so-called charm offensive in Copenhagen but the meeting was called off when Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt said that Denmark would hold its own elections next month.  Show Comments ▼ center_img whatsapp EU referendum details emerge as David Cameron begins European tour to win reform support Share whatsapp Tags: Brexit David Cameron Peoplelast_img read more

Payday loan business a Ponzi scheme, BCSC alleges

Share this article and your comments with peers on social media IE Staff Related news Keywords FraudCompanies British Columbia Securities Commission Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Nelson ran her business through a group of companies that she directed and controlled, and which she represented and promoted collectively as the Little Loan Shoppe. She financed the growth of her business by raising funds from investors in B.C. and the U.S., and used existing investors to recruit new investors, paying these recruiters on a commission basis. In return for investors’ money, she had her companies issue promissory notes. Nelson represented to investors, both directly and through her recruiters, that because her business was so profitable, she could afford promissory notes paying annual interest rates of 40% to 60%. She also said that the investment was risk-free. In reality, her business was not profitable due to its high rate of customer loan defaults. One of the companies that Nelson controlled and used to issue promissory notes was 0738126 B.C. Ltd. On July 11, 2008, commission investigators notified Nelson that 0738126’s capital raising activities in B.C. were under investigation. The notice alleges that Nelson reacted by emailing investors, telling them that she planned to make false statements to the commission and coaching them to hide relevant information if contacted by the commission. The commission ordered 0738126 to provide information and records regarding its investors. In response, Nelson produced a false affidavit in which she misrepresented the number of Canadian investors and attached false evidence purporting to establish exemptions for those distributions that 0738126 had already made. Nelson also stated, correctly, that 0738126 had ceased distributing securities. Since 2009, two of Nelson’s companies have entered bankruptcy proceedings. Nelson is also the subject of civil proceedings brought by the Washington State Department of Financial Institutions and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Additionally, she is awaiting trial in federal criminal court in Spokane, Wash., currently scheduled to be held in June 2013, on 71 counts of wire fraud, 22 counts of mail fraud, and 17 counts of international money laundering. These allegations have not been proven. Counsel for the BCSC executive director will apply to set dates for a hearing into the allegations before a panel of commissioners on February 19.

Horizons launches actively managed senior loan ETF

first_img Toronto-based Horizons ETFs Management (Canada) Inc. has announce the launch of Horizons Active Floating Rate Senior Loan ETF, a U.S. senior secured floating rate loan ETF alternative to high yield bonds, which will offer some protection from potential rising interest rates. Class E units (TSX:HSL) and Advisor Class units (TSX:HSL.A) began trading Wednesday on the Toronto Stock Exchange. The fund seeks to provide unitholders with a high level of current income by investing primarily in a diversified portfolio of U.S. senior secured floating rate loans, which are generally rated below investment grade (loans rated at or below BB+ by Standard & Poor’s, or a similar rating by a designated rating organization) and debt securities, with capital appreciation as a secondary objective. The fund will, to the best of its ability, seek to hedge its non-Canadian dollar currency exposure to the Canadian dollar at all times. “In today’s low interest rate environment, income investors should be aware of how potential interest rate increases could impact the value of their bond portfolios,” said Howard Atkinson, president of Horizons ETFs, in a release. “Since senior loan prices are generally not impacted as negatively by rising interest rates as traditional bonds, HSL can be considered a diversification tool for fixed income investors that may help offset some of their interest rate risk.” “The U.S. senior loan market is much larger than the Canadian corporate bond market, which means there is a sufficiently large universe of investments available to HSL,” said Atkinson. “It can be a compelling alternative to holding high yield bonds, particularly for investors who are interested in generating an attractive monthly income that will generally rise or fall with short-term interest rates.” Sub-advised by AlphaFixe Capital Inc., a Quebec-based investment management firm focused on fixed income investing, HSL will be actively managed by Sébastien Rhéaume and Diane Favreau with their team, who, collectively, have over 50 years of experience investing in senior loans. HSL also offers a number of structural advantages compared to other senior loan products, such as its flexible asset allocation policy, which allows the ETF to hold cash, high yield bonds, and even investment grade bonds, that can all provide additional liquidity during adverse credit markets, Horizons noted.

Catastrophe bond market gains momentum

first_imgdollar boat in the bad weather illustration economic instability solerf/123RF Study: Racial diversity stagnated on U.S. corporate boards With bond yields low and rising, what is the price of safety? After a record year, the issuance of catastrophe bonds is continuing to grow in 2021, Moody’s Investors Service reports.The rating agency said the catastrophe bond market saw record issuance of US$11.4 billion in 2020, almost double the previous year. The market looks even stronger this year, with nearly US$8 billion issued to date.“For 2021, cat bond issuance should continue to grow with strong investor demand for the asset class as evidenced by the reduction in spreads and upsized deals seen over the last several quarters,” Moody’s said.Spreads on catastrophe bonds increased in the first half of 2020 “in response to the coronavirus pandemic and impairment losses from 2017 and 2018 catastrophes,” Moody’s reported.“Spreads began to tighten toward the end of the year as the economy stabilized and investors sought the diversification benefits of this distinct asset class,” it noted.The tightening in spreads has continued this year, driven by investor demand, it said.Longer term, the asset class could see further growth amid the increased interest in ESG investing and efforts to model emerging threats, such as cyber risks, Moody’s said.

Programs staff increase intensity at Bathurst prison

first_imgPrograms staff increase intensity at Bathurst prison A dedicated team of programs officers at Bathurst Correctional Centre is making headway in the rehabilitation of inmates on shorter sentences. The team of eight in the High Intensity Programs Unit are among 10,000 Corrective Services NSW staff celebrated on National Corrections Day, Friday 15 January, for their commitment to reducing reoffending.Services and programs officer Chris Osborne has worked with the team since they set up in late 2017, running programs for offenders serving sentences less than 12 months.“It’s really about intensely going over the same skills daily to address the offending behaviours related to substance addiction, aggression or domestic abuse,” he says.“The inmates will say ‘we did that yesterday’ but it’s like with anything, the more you do and practise, the better you’ll be and that’s the same with changing someone’s behaviour.”Chris traded greenkeeping for a role as an overseer at Oberon Correctional Centre a decade ago before moving to Bathurst Correctional Centre in 2014.He received a letter of appreciation from a former inmate last year who had repeatedly been in trouble with the law, mainly receiving short sentences.“This older man mentioned you’re never too old to learn new tricks and how participating in the HIPU made him realise how precious life is, being able to see his grandkids and daughter on the outside,” Chris says.“I’ve also seen a former inmate go on to become a drug and alcohol counsellor and that’s what reducing reoffending is about – giving people strategies so they can contribute to the community and live a life freely.”Around 250 inmates over the past three years have benefitted from the Bathurst HIPU, which also focuses on pre-release planning including practical life and communication skills, and access to community support and mental health services.Senior services and programs officer Georgie Ross helps organise the HIPU inmates’ program timetables among other tasks.“While the intensity of programs is overwhelming for some, you do see improved behaviour – the men are often more relaxed towards the end and more open to change,” she says.“I’ve delivered programs at Wellington Correctional Centre and Sydney prisons over the past 11 years but moving to the Bathurst HIPU has kept me challenged and diversified my skills.”The 2021 National Corrections Day theme is Working together to reduce reoffending, focusing on the ways corrections staff work hard to assist offenders through programs, education, promoting a good workplace culture and positive interactions.CSNSW includes about 5,000 custodial officers, 1,800 Community Corrections staff, 750 industries workers, 720 psychologists and programs officers and 1,170 Security and Intelligence staff. /Public Release.
