(Getty Images) Leading financial services firms have today announced the launch of a new alliance to reach net zero emissions ahead of President Biden’s climate summit.  It has been organised by former Bank of England Governor Mark Carney who has been appointed the Prime Minister’s Finance Advisor for COP26, alongside John Kerry and Janet Yellen.  “Uniting the world’s banks and financial institutions behind the global transition to net zero is crucial to unlocking the finance we need to get there – from backing pioneering firms and new technologies to building resilient economies around the world,” the Prime Minister Boris Johnson said.  whatsapp Climate campaigners have already raised allegations of greenwashing among these guidelines, questioning whether the 2030 target is mandatory. Similarly questions relating to reducing fossil fuel financing will need to be addressed.  The Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero (GFANZ) will bring together existing and new net zero initiatives and will be made up of 160 of the world’s biggest banks, asset managers and insurers with assets in excess of $70 trillion.  Former BoE Governor Mark Carney is leading the charge on the latest net-zero alliance of financial services leaders.

Boris Johnson plays down UK-EU rift over Northern Ireland at G7 summit

first_img“What I will say is I think it’s the job of the government for the UK to uphold the territorial integrity of the UK,” he said. Multiple media outlets reported that Johnson was trying to explain the anger over the upcoming sausage ban at his bilateral meeting with Macron yesterday, telling him that he would not be happy if meats could not be transported from Toulouse to Paris. Stefan Boscia Johnson refused to say confirm whether these comments were made at his press conference today. Speaking to Sky News earlier today, Raab said Macron’s comments on Northern Ireland were “not only offensive, it has real world effects in the communities in Northern Ireland, creates great concern, creates great consternation”. One area of disagreement is the future of chilled meats, like minced beef and sausages, produced in Great Britain as they are set to be banned in Northern Ireland from the end of this month. The French President is said to have replied that the comparison does not work as Paris and Toulouse are in the same country, unlike Northern Ireland and Great Britain. The UK and EU are locked in negotiations over the application of the post-Brexit protocol, with an upcoming EU ban on Great Britain sausages entering Northern Ireland causing friction. He added: “But also, could you imagine if we talked about Catalonia, the Flemish part of Belgium, one of the lander in Germany, northern Italy, Corsica in France as different countries? The Prime Minister’s attempt to cool tensions comes after foreign secretary Dominic Raab said earlier today that comments reportedly made by French President Emmanuel Macron about Northern Ireland were “offensive” and disrespectful.

Macron was more open in his G7 press conference today, telling journalists that “inconsistencies from the British side shouldn’t be blamed on the EU”. center_img whatsapp Boris Johnson’s attempt to cool tensions comes after foreign secretary Dominic Raab said earlier today that comments reportedly made by French President Emmanuel Macron about Northern Ireland were “offensive” and disrespectful.

Share Johnson has threatened to ignore the upcoming ban – something the EU has warned could cause a trade war. “We’re going to fix it, we’re going to fix it in a pragmatic way, but it’s about making sure we protect the Good Friday peace process and the integrity of the UK,” Johnson said.

Defense bill passes with measure Sen. Sullivan hopes will halt JBER cuts

first_imgFederal Government | Military | Politics | SouthcentralDefense bill passes with measure Sen. Sullivan hopes will halt JBER cutsOctober 8, 2015 by Liz Ruskin, APRN Share:Five hundred soldiers from the 4th Brigade Combat Team (Airborne), 25th Infantry Division, returned to Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson after a 10-month deployment to Afghanistan in October 2012. (Photo by Justin Connaher/U.S. Air Force)The U.S. Senate on Wednesday passed the annual defense authorization bill, with a provision by Alaska Sen. Dan Sullivan requiring an “Arctic Operation Plan.”The O-PLAN is a key part of Sullivan’s effort to stave off the Army’s announced cut of thousands of troops from Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson. Sullivan argues the Pentagon can’t make the JBER cuts before it has a plan to identify which assets it needs to defend the region.Lt. Col. Joe Buccino, an Army spokesman, says the chief of staff of the Army will review the Arctic Operation Plan once it is complete, and it will “help inform how and if” the troop reduction will take place. In the meantime, Buccino says the plan to cut troops from JBER has not changed and is not “on hold.”The cuts, announced this summer, are scheduled to take place over the next two years.The White House has issued a veto threat for the defense bill, part of a larger budget dispute with Republicans in Congress.Share this story:last_img read more

Confused about social services, unemployment or stimulus money? We’ve got you covered.

first_imgCoronavirusConfused about social services, unemployment or stimulus money? We’ve got you covered.April 11, 2020 by Lex Treinen, Alaska Public Media Share:Spenard Builders Supply uses its sign to share a hopeful message to Anchorage on April 7th, 2020. (Photo courtesy Hannah Lies/Alaska Public Media)From unemployment insurance to small business loans, many Alaskans have been forced, suddenly, to navigate a myriad of social benefits, including those in the recently-passed federal CARES Act.Here’s the latest on some programs that are available to help:Unemployment insurance: Unemployment Insurance is a state-administered, federally funded program that recently had benefits boosted in the CARES Act. You can earn up to $370 a week, plus up to $75 for each dependent if you apply on the state’s website, and many of the usual requirements have been waived or modified. State administrators are advising self-employed people and those working in the gig economy to wait until the department has finalized the administration of the program. The department says that might not happen until early to mid-June.Small business loans: Many affected small businesses could be eligible for the Payment Protection Program, which offers loans and grants for employers who agree to keep employees on their payrolls. You’ll have to apply at your bank and many details are still being worked out, but you don’t need any collateral and there’s a chance you can get that loan forgiven if you meet the conditions. The U.S. Small Business Administration is offering $10,000 ‘loans’ with fewer requirements than usual, as well as the possibility that you won’t ever have to pay them back. There’s some things you need to know before you get started that we’ve included in the link below. Local programs might be able to help as well, so check with your community’s government for more options.Food assistance: The Food Bank of Alaska says it’s ready for the challenge of providing more meals to more people who have recently found themselves in a position where they can’t afford food. Their website has an online map where you can find pantries around the state. There are also meals delivered to kids around the state through a variety of partners. Additionally, there are federal programs such as SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) and WIC (Women, Infants & Children) that you can apply for through the state’s website.Utilities: Utility companies around the state have agreed to waive late fees and have agreed not to disconnect customers who can’t pay. Private companies have followed suit, signing the Keep Americans Connected pledge and offering free internet or upgrades.Direct payments: Regardless of what you apply for, as long as you’ve paid your taxes and your income isn’t over $75,000, you’ll be getting a direct $1200 “economic impact payment” from the federal government as part of the CARES Act. That money should start being sent out in mid-April, according to the most recent information on the IRS website. Also, $1000 PFDs.Share this story:last_img read more

Alaska justices question Legislature’s ability to budget for schools, other items in future years

first_imgCrime & Courts | Southcentral | Southeast | State GovernmentAlaska justices question Legislature’s ability to budget for schools, other items in future yearsMarch 31, 2021 by Andrew Kitchenman, KTOO and Alaska Public Media Share:The Alaska Supreme Court listens to oral arguments in a lawsuit between Gov. Mike Dunleavy and the Legislative Council and Coalition for Education Equity on March 31, 2021. Top row: Chief Justice Joel Bolger and Associate Justice Susan Carney. Middle row: Associate Justice Peter Maassen; Associate Justice Daniel Winfree; and Senior Justice Warren Matthews. Bottom row: Coalition for Education Equity lawyer Howard Trickey; Legislative Legal Services Director Megan Wallace; and Assistant Attorney General Laura Fox (Gavel Alaska screen capture)Justices on the Alaska Supreme Court on Wednesday questioned the constitutionality of the Legislature funding public education a year early. The questioning happened during oral arguments in a lawsuit between Gov. Mike Dunleavy on one side and the Legislative Council and school funding advocates on the other. Justice Daniel Winfree asked if there was any limit on the Legislature’s ability to decide spending years ahead of time for any part of the state budget, such as permanent fund dividends. “Why couldn’t the Legislature appropriate the money for the next 15 years of permanent fund dividends based on the statutory provision and have that be a public purpose? What would stop that? What is the limiting principle?” Winfree asked an attorney for the Legislature.The lawsuit came out of a dispute between Dunleavy’s administration and the Legislature. Three years ago, before Dunleavy was elected, the Legislature included $20 million of school funding in the budget to be spent the following year. Dunleavy’s administration argued that this funding was unconstitutional because the Legislature can only budget for one year at a time. The Legislative Council and the nonprofit Coalition for Education Equity sued to support the Legislature’s position. Legislative lawyer Megan Wallace argued that the Legislature could always repeal money that had been budgeted in an earlier year. “Those future appropriations remain available for future Legislatures as they balance revenue and expenditures to make changes to amend, repeal and to ensure that there’s adequate revenue to cover those expenditures,” Wallace said. But Wallace continued to face skepticism from multiple justices on the five-member court. Assistant Attorney General Laura Fox represented the administration. The justices also questioned her, but not as much. She said the Alaska Constitution doesn’t allow for budgets that cover future years. “It thwarts the democratic process by allowing past legislators and the past governor to control the budget, even after voters have voted them out,” she said. Senior Justice Warren Matthews sat in on the case since Justice Dario Borghesan was a lawyer for the administration on the case before he was appointed to the court. He recused himself.It’s not clear when the court will rule on the case.  Share this story:last_img read more

Both were banned from taking senior roles in financial services firms.Their failings led to a culture which permitted Libor manipulation to take place, and for wrongdoing to go undetected, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) said.“Proper systems and controls were non-existent and there was a culture at Martins where revenue came first and compliance was seen as unimportant rather than as an integral part of the running of the firm,” said the FCA’s Georgina Philippou. “Both individuals also ignored obvious risks such as the risk that brokers would give or accept inducements. This risk did in fact crystalise when brokers at Martins were induced to assist in Libor manipulation in exchange for corrupt brokerage payments.”Both agreed to settle early in the investigation, resulting in a 30 per cent discount to their fines.

Scottish referendum revisited: Nicola Sturgeon claims David Cameron is “living on borrowed time” in his attempt to keep UK together

first_imgThis time last year, the SNP was describing Scottish referendum as a once in a generation vote. But one year on, Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon is throwing the door open once more.  In a speech to mark the anniversary of the independence referendum given this morning, Sturgeon said that the future decision of whether Scotland did break from the union depended “as much on what [David Cameron does] as on what we do.  “Right now, you are living on borrowed time,” she added.  “If you continue to ignore Scotland’s voice, if you continue to disrespect the choice we made in May, more people will conclude that Westminster simply cannot deliver for Scotland.” “So it is your choice Prime Minister, but know this – Scotland is watching.”  She attacked the  Conservatives for imposing austerity on working people and the disabled as well as “arrogantly pressing ahead” with plans to renew Trident. Sturgeon insisted that it was down to the people to decide whether Scotland was independent, adding that the SNP’s 2016 manifesto will set out the party’s position on whether it should push for another poll.  “This is a judgement that we will make carefully,” she said. “It is a judgement that will be driven, not by the interests of the SNP, but by the interests of the people of Scotland as a whole. “Only the people can decide if we will have another referendum. Only the people can decide when that will be.” Her broadside comes as Cameron told the SNP it was time to “move on” from the independence debate, saying the party should respect the outcome of the referendum last year, in which Scotland voted 55 per cent in favour of remaining part of the union.  The SNP went on to clear up at the General Election, winning 69 seats as Labour collapsed north of the border. Sturgeon said SNP’s membership had risen from 26,000 in September 2014 to 112,000 in September 2015. Polls suggest that there is still a broad level of support for Scotland to become independent, however they are very far from decisive.  More From Our Partners White House Again Downplays Fourth Possible Coronvirus Checkvaluewalk.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgInstitutional Investors Turn To Options to Bet Against AMCvaluewalk.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Friday 18 September 2015 10:37 am Share whatsapp center_img Catherine Neilan Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Scottish referendum revisited: Nicola Sturgeon claims David Cameron is “living on borrowed time” in his attempt to keep UK together last_img read more
