Barnier said last week’s deal over a set of pan-European watchdogs showed a political willingness for further post-crisis reforms.“We are in the last straight. The big work has been done by the European Parliament. There are two or three sensitive points including on the treatment of third countries and the passport for hedge operators,” he said.Under the proposal, approved hedge fund operators would get “a passport” allowing them to manage funds and sell them across the EU. The same proposal includes regulation of private funds.Previous talks between European lawmakers and country representatives on the plan collapsed in June. EU member states are divided on hedge fund regulation with Germany and France wanting tougher controls than Britain.On private equity regulation, European Parliament members are pushing for tighter rules than in draft proposals. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ EU’s Barnier expects agreement on host of new rules in few weeks center_img whatsapp Read This NextNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’Sportsnaut’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family Proof Share Tags: NULLlast_img read more

She can be reached via The UK Community Foundations have announced that their Winter Flood Recovery Appeals raised £14.6m, following matched funding by the Government.Campaigns were launched in in Cumbria, Calderdale, Leeds, Lancashire, York and North Yorkshire, Scotland and Wales to help areas affected by this winter’s storms. Large donations were also received from Comic Relief, Walmart and Howdens, and umbrella organisation UK Community Foundations (UKCF) launched its own appeal on 30th December, distributing funds raised to the areas affected.Immediate relief grants funded emergency costs for shelter, food and clothing with the community foundations now focusing on supporting people returning to their own homes and assisting in repairing local businesses.Fabian French, chief executive of UKCF said:“It is remarkable how much money has been raised in a short period of time to help people in very real need. The Winter Flood Recovery Campaign shows how strongly individuals and businesses feel about supporting their own communities. This generosity has enabled the community foundation network to make grants to thousands of people throughout the UK.”  129 total views,  2 views today Advertisement Tagged with: community foundations disaster AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Winter Flood Recovery Appeals raise £14.6m  130 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more

Syracuse student workers organize

first_imgWW photo: Minnie Bruce PrattStudent organizing against Syracuse University austerity cutbacks is accelerating. On April 9, SU student-workers held a rally and march to protest recent SU administration changes to their health care benefits. The changes would raise costs as much as $1,500 a year for some graduate teaching and research assistants.Three international graduate student teachers who are also single mothers spoke of struggles over low wages that do not compensate for hours of out-of-classroom work such as grading, preparation or student conferences.  The women noted the school does not provide child care for student teaching assistants.The night before the rally, the Graduate Student Organization passed a resolution to explore unionization with only one “no” vote. At the rally, a member of the Labor Studies Working Group stressed: “[graduate assistants], [teaching assistants] and [research assistants] are fundamentally employees of the University who deserve rights.” When he added that the “best way to claim those rights is to unionize,” the crowd responded with vociferous applause.Rally-goers then marched through the Student Union, passing under a “SU Wellness Week” publicity banner as they chanted “Poverty wages have got to go!” They continued to the Student Health Center, where the crowd briefly held the street, shouting: “What do we want? Health care! If we don’t get it? Shut it down!”The rally continues the student-faculty-staff coalition formed in fall 2014 during an 18-day sit-in by students in the SU administration building. That mobilization, coordinated by THE General Body, was a “united front of 50 student organizations.”On April 7, TGB held a press conference to stress the gains won from the sit-in, including SU’s divestment from direct fossil fuel investment. Speakers also stressed that the SU administration needed to “divest from corporate ideology,” and criticized the lack of concrete steps to support programs against racism on campus, to end sexual assault and relationship violence, and to provide services for students with disabilities.One student spoke eloquently of mental health as a disability issue linked to oppression, describing the exhaustion from constantly “mentally fighting” against racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia and ableism in “lab rooms, classrooms, dorm rooms, bathrooms, at bus stops.” Rebecca Fuentes, of the Workers Center of Central New York, represented the low-wage worker struggle throughout the U.S. and said to the students, “We are standing with you!”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Late Cretaceous to early Tertiary subduction history of the Antarctic Peninsula

first_imgQuantitative estimates of the rates and azimuths of Phoenix plate convergence with the Antarctic Peninsula have been derived from plate rotation calculations for two periods in the Late Cretaceous and early Tertiary (83.0–67.7 and 61.1–53.4 Ma). Published marine magnetic anomaly identifications and ‘flow lines’ interpreted from gravity anomaly maps were used in simple spherical geometry calculations to derive Phoenix–Pacific stage rotations. These were combined with published Pacific–Antarctic rotation data to determine contemporaneous Phoenix–Antarctic stage rotations. The results indicate a significant change in azimuths of relative motion between the Late Cretaceous and early Tertiary. Late Cretaceous, and perhaps earlier, oblique subduction probably caused migration of fore-arc slivers along the margin, resulting in variations in width of the accretionary prism. Comparison between synthetic magnetic profiles and a 900 km long magnetic profile across ocean floor produced at the Antarctic–Phoenix ridge during the early Tertiary establishes the time of a major decrease in spreading rate, and hence also in convergence rate, as chron C23r (52.3 Ma). The associated change in subduction dynamics may have caused the dextral transtensional deformation observed in the George VI Sound region and initiated uplift of blueschist facies rocks now exposed on Smith Island. The calculated convergence history does not provide a simple explanation for the occurrence of high-Mg# andesite lavas on Alexander Island, which were erupted more than 20 Ma before the Antarctic–Phoenix ridge arrived at the margin. The existence of these lavas implies either earlier subduction of another ridge or slab break-up beneath Alexander Island.last_img read more
