Corrao proposed that before the next elections Sri Lanka must adopt a new electoral law that will set the framework for the electoral commission, improve accessibility to polling stations for people with reduced mobility and increase the presence of senior presiding officer positions for women on election day.

Hundreds of kids were getting messy for a good cause. Kids and even some parents took part in the fourth annual National Puddle Day at homestead park in Mount Hope. For the event, kids jumped in puddles to honour children whose lives were cut short. The event was set up after four-year-old Matthew Chatelain was killed in an accident nearly 4 years ago.“Every year we do this big event,” says Jason Freeman, Matthew’s uncle, “it’s a great way to remember him and how much fun he loved to play in puddles and how happy he was all time.”Event organizers were also collecting donations and rubber boots for the Bereaved Families of Ontario. This year they hope to collect eight hundred pairs of boots. read more

But when one of the women went inside, she saw Mr Pearson lying on the floor injured.She described Miss Harris as “distressed” saying, “What have I done… I’ve gone too far this time”.Mr Auty said Miss Harris claimed to have only “jabbed” her boyfriend to stop him attacking her.”Significantly, when all of this was over she didn’t have a mark on her.

first_img Image: YouTube Short URL ONE OF MONGOLIA’S top rappers was beaten up by a Russian diplomat after performing wearing a swastika, a traditional Mongolian symbol, the singer’s lawyer and police alleged.Amarmandakh Sukhbaatar, known as Amraa and lead singer of Khar Sarnai, Black Rose, took to the stage at an event in Ulan Bator wearing a red deel, a traditional Mongolian robe, embroidered with a swastika.Afterwards, he was savagely assaulted by a Russian diplomat, his lawyer and his father told reporters on Friday.The broken cross symbol is generally believed to have its origins in India thousands of years ago and its use has been recorded centuries ago in Mongolia, long before it was appropriated by Adolf Hitler.Tens of millions of Soviet citizens died fighting against the forces of Nazi Germany in the Second World War, known as the Great Patriotic War in Russia.The singer, who speaks Russian and was a guest performer on Mongolia’s Got Talent last year, was in a coma for around 10 days after the assault, said his father Sevjidiin Sukhbaatar.Swastika“My son was hit in the face several times with a metal object and was seriously injured. His brain was seriously hurt,” he said, wearing a deel and fur hat and displaying a book of traditional swastika patterns.Amraa’s songs regularly reference Mongolian history, culture and identity, and he often wears a swastika on stage. But the symbol is also used by far-right Mongolian nationalist groups.Amraa’s lawyer, father and a fellow band member denied social media reports that he cried “Heil Hitler” at the show.Attorney Gankhuugiin Batbayar said the investigation was being carried out more slowly than usual and the suspect had not been detained. “The suspect must be investigated according to Mongolian law, no matter his status or immunity as a diplomat.”Mongolia was under the Soviet yoke for decades during the Communist era, until a democratic revolution in 1990. But Russian cultural influence endures in many forms, including music and the use of the Cyrillic alphabet.In a statement posted on its website, the Russian embassy said it was investigating press and social media reports of the beating.“According to our preliminary information,” it said, the reports were “distorted, particularly about the date, the number of participants and the circumstances of the accident”.A police spokesman told AFP the case was under investigation.“The suspect is a Russian diplomatic officer and the reason he wasn’t kept in detention is the injury is not serious,” he said. “It’s not true that the suspect wasn’t arrested because of diplomatic immunity.”© – AFP 2016Read: Nothing left to give back: Coveney says water charges money already spent >Read: Man who hiked price of HIV drug mocks schoolkids for recreating medicine in lab > Swastika-clad Mongolian rapper ‘beaten up by Russian diplomat’ The incident was sparked by the rapper wearing a swastika on stage.

first_imgThe government has confirmed that the incoming pensions advice allowance can be used alongside the tax exemption for employer-arranged pensions advice, enabling employees to access up to £1,000 of tax-advantaged financial advice in a tax year.In its response to the Introducing a pensions advice allowance consultation, which ran between August and October 2016, the government has confirmed that individuals of any age will be entitled to withdraw funds from a registered pension scheme to pay for pensions or retirement advice.The pensions advice allowance, which will come into effect from April 2017, can be used up to three times in an individual’s lifetime, and no more than once in each tax year. The new allowance will be limited to £500 per use.The allowance, which can only be used for registered financial advice, can be withdrawn from defined contribution (DC) pensions and hybrid pension schemes with a money purchase or cash balance element, with the payment made directly from the pension scheme to the adviser.The £500 that is withdrawn from the pension pot will not be taxed, regardless of the individual’s income.The new pensions advice allowance will be promoted through nudges designed by the Financial Advice Working Group and signposted by the Pension Wise service.The pensions advice allowance can be used in conjunction with tax-exempt pensions advice available to employees, which is being increased from £150 to £500 per employee per tax year. Employees will also be able to put the £500 employer-arranged advice towards general financial and tax issues relating to pensions.The £500 employer-arranged pensions advice tax exemption will be available via a salary sacrifice arrangement, and will also include instances where an employer reimburses an employee for pensions advice they have arranged.Combined, employees will be able to use the new pensions advice allowance and the employer-arranged pensions advice to access £1,000 of tax-advantaged financial advice in a tax year.The government will launch a technical consultation on the draft regulations for the new pensions advice allowance, which will run for three weeks.Simon Kirby, economic secretary to the Treasury, said: “Pensions and savings decisions are some of the most important a person will make during their lifetime. This allowance will help people get the vital financial help they need to plan for retirement.”Tom McPhail, head of retirement policy at Hargreaves Lansdown, added: “For most investors, there are occasions through their working lives when financial advice can make a big difference. This recommendation, to allow tax-free withdrawals from pensions to pay for pension or retirement advice was part of the Financial Advice Market Review, so it is good to see the government delivering on its commitment to help ordinary savers and investors.“The decision to allow up to three bites at the cherry is more generous than we expected. There will be some challenges for the industry in recording and policing this new facility, but it should help investors to make the most of their wealth. This is good news for investors, advisers, for pension providers and the government.”Steven Cameron, pensions director at Aegon, said: “We welcome the pensions advice allowance as a further means through which individuals can pay for valuable advice on their pension planning. In today’s pension world, individuals have complete freedom over how to draw their pension benefits, but choosing what’s best can be daunting without access to professional advice.“We’re pleased the Treasury has decided against setting any minimum age before an individual can use the pensions advice allowance. Allowing it to be used up to three times is also a step in the right direction [because] people can benefit from advice on different aspects of their retirement planning at different ages or in different circumstances.”last_img read more

first_imgThe counterfeit oxycodone tablet actually contained fentanyl. (Courtesy of Alaska Dept. of Health and Social Services.)Late last month the state’s crime lab confirmed that a counterfeit prescription opioid tablet was found in Alaska. The small blue pill looked like a generic oxycodone tablet but was actually made of the much stronger drug fentanyl. This is the first such pill found in the state, but they’ve been circulating in the Lower 48 for over a year.Listen nowPeople who buy drugs illegally may not be aware they are getting such a powerful opioid and could more easily overdose when using it, Chief Medical Officer Jay Butler said.“In general use of illicitly obtained drugs is always going to be a game of Russian roulette,” Butler said.People should seek treatment for their addictions, Butler advised, but if treatment isn’t available they should exercise caution with illegal drugs.“Never use any kind of opioid medication alone,” Butler said. “Always have someone around who can help you if you overdose. Have Naloxone available. That’s the drug that can reverse the respiratory depression from opioid overdose. And avoid mixing drugs. Many people who die of an overdose have multiple drugs and alcohol on board at the time of death.”The state plans to start distributing Naloxone to law enforcement agencies and health workers next week, Butler said. The medication can be injected or administered through a nasal spray.last_img read more

first_imgEven though gentrification has challenged several small businesses in the District, the owners of a local Black bookstore continue to hope it will remain in business based on customers’ devotion to its unique subject matter at a time when major bookstore chains such as Barnes and Nobles are leaving. Sankofa Video Books & Café, a retail establishment in the District since 1997, provides books, videos, and programming created by people of African Descent to encourage reflection. The store holds events that teach up-and-coming filmmakers about techniques in the industry, while featuring Black writers and film directors including Sistah Souljah, Sonja Sanchez, Eloise Greenfield, and many others.“The population that we serve still feels the strain, and they come to Sankofa like it’s an oasis. If there’s no Black customer, there’s no Sankofa,” Shirikiana Gerima, one of the store’s co-owners, told the AFRO.According to Gerima, recent marches in D.C. such as the “Justice or Else” March and the 20th Anniversary of the Million Man March helped generate large amounts of business. Though Gerima was absent the day of the “Justice or Else” March, she heard about the influx customers through her husband and workers. “It was one of our best weekends” Gerima said. “[They] told me it was just packed, and people were coming in . . . they just flooded the place.”Before Sankofa, an Adinkra term meaning “going back to our past in order to go forward,” became known a bookstore, it was the name of an independent film that Gerima and her husband Haile, the other owner of the store, produced. The film gained international success, obtaining several awards, but was not as widely accepted in America. According to the company’s website, the owners ordeal attempting to get the film shown in this country inspired the idea of the store – what community and artist teamwork could accomplish?“At that time, VHS tapes were the form of video” Gerima said. “So we converted them to VHS and rented here, and also sold them to universities . . . The idea was we wanted to make people respect films the way that good literature was respected.”Gerima and her husband are working on adding a theatre for future screenings. She is also moving forward with her film project, which has taken a while to finish due to funding issues.However, Gerima said, with her helpful staff and a deeply-rooted family structure at Sankofa, she believes she can take time off from growing her business to finish her production. “We’ll be here as long as the Black community makes sure that we’re still here.” Gerima said.Upcoming events at the bookstore include an Ethiopian Christmas Commemoration and celebration on Jan. 7, a Rastafarian Study circle on Jan. 9, a taping of the online news show “All Eyes on D.C.” on Jan. 15, and a Sip and Paint event on Jan. 16.  For more information, visit sankofa.com.last_img read more

first_imgWitnesses at House Committee Hearing Testify of Dodd-Frank’s Adverse Effects Dodd-Frank Act Financial Stability House Financial Services Committee 2015-07-10 Seth Welborn Share Witnesses at a recent House Financial Services Committee hearing testified the Dodd-Frank Act has “reduced financial stability” and made Americans worse off financially in the controversial law’s first five years of existence.The hearing, titled “Dodd-Frank Five Years Later: Are We More Stable?” was the first in a series of three full Committee hearings to examine the impact Dodd-Frank has had on American consumers and the country’s financial system and economy since President Obama signed it in to law in July 2010. The focus of Thursday’s hearing was on how the 400 new regulations enacted in the 2,300-page law is a threat to the country’s financial stability.”What is undebatable is the fact that since the passage of Dodd-Frank the big banks are now bigger; the small banks are now fewer,” Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas) said in his opening statement at the hearing. “In other words, even more banking assets are now concentrated in the so-called ‘too big to fail’ firms. Pray tell, how does this improve financial stability?”One of the witnesses, Todd Zywicki, Professor of Law at George Mason University and Mercatus Center Senior Scholar, said that American families were not better off five years after Dodd-Frank went into law.”Instead, the overall impact of Dodd-Frank has been to slow our economic recovery, raise prices, reduce choice, and eliminate access to the financial mainstream for American families,” Zywicki said. “And low-income Americans have been hit the hardest.”While supporters of Dodd-Frank say the law has put an end to “too big to fail,” members of the Committee said Dodd-Frank enshrined “too big to fail,” into law, leaving taxpayers exposed to the risk if the economic stability of financial institutions designated as “too big to fail” was to be threatened.  One key takeaway from Thursday’s hearing was that the drafters of Dodd-Frank claimed the financial crisis was caused by a lack of regulation, when in reality financial regulations increased in the decade preceding the recession.”Although a few modest improvements have been made to increase financial stability, I believe Dodd-Frank, no net, has reduced financial stability,” said Mark Calabria, Director of Financial Regulation Studies, Cato Institute, one of the witnesses at the hearing. “The reason for such is a combination of both errors of commission and omission. Moral hazard has been increased by Dodd-Frank’s expansion of the financial safety net and increased concentration of risk into fewer entities, while the primary 18 causes of the crisis were largely left untouched. I fear if we continue along our current path, we are almost certain to see another financial crisis sometime in the next decade.”Another key takeaway from Thursdays hearing is the new bureaucracies borne out of Dodd-Frank such as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the Financial Stability Oversight Council operated without a system of checks and balances yet have the ability to “fundamentally alter” the U.S. economic landscape and affect the financial livelihood of millions of Americans. The “shadow regulatory system” created by Dodd-Frank poses more of a threat to the Americans’ financial well-being than the “shadow banking system” does, as the Obama administration claims,” according to the Committee.The Committee also claimed at the hearing that a key portion of Dodd-Frank, the Volcker Rule, has caused a lack of liquidity in capital markets, which gives them less capacity to deal with economic shocks.”After the bill that was to become Dodd-Frank was reported out of the Conference Committee, Chris Dodd famously said, ‘No one will know until this is actually in place how it works,'” said Paul Atkins, former Commissioner, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, a witness at the hearing. “Five years later we still do not know the full effects the Dodd-Frank Act will have on U.S. capital markets. We do know, however, that the costs of Dodd-Frank have been borne not just by Wall Street, but by ordinary investors and businesses of all shapes and sizes.”The second hearing in the series, titled “Dodd-Frank Five Years Later: Are We More Prosperous?” is scheduled for July 28 in the House Financial Services Committee. The date of the third and final hearing in the series, titled “Dodd-Frank Five Years Later: Are We More Free?” will be announced later, according to the Committee.center_img July 10, 2015 474 Views in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Newslast_img read more

first_imgUnderstanding Homeowner Predictions Despite the fact that most homeowners believe the the U.S. will enter a recession in the next three years, potential buyers are still looking to close on homes. According to realtor.com, 70 percent of homeowners predict a recession within the next three years, while around 30 percent of those surveyed expect the next recession to begin even sooner, sometime in 2020.Realtor.com also notes that 56 percent of shoppers believe home prices have hit their peak, despite 63 percent of shoppers reporting that home prices are increasing compared to last year.”The U.S. economy has been on a hot streak for the last seven years, producing steady economic growth and low unemployment rates. Historically, this type of growth hasn’t continued indefinitely, and U.S. home shoppers think it will come to an end sooner rather than later,” said Danielle Hale, realtor.com’s Chief Economist.Less than half of respondents, 41 percent, say that the U.S. housing market would fare better than it did in 2008, while another 36 percent it would be worse, and 23 percent expect it to be the same.”When the U.S. enters its next recession, it is unlikely that the housing market will see a sharp nationwide downturn,” Hale added. “The same record low inventory levels that have made buying a home so difficult recently, will likely protect home prices in the next recession.”Homeowners are feeling optimistic: slightly under half, or 45 percent, of home shoppers report feeling slightly more optimistic about homeownership after the 2008 recession, while another 33 percent reported no change in their feelings on homeownership. Just 22 percent report a pessimistic outlook on homeownership.According to realtor.com, the long recovery process following the last recession may be behind the optimism some homeowners are feeling. Fore example, home prices across the U.S. have grown by 49 percent since 2010, while the economy has grown by $3 trillion and added 18.7 million more jobs.
