Baer would not comment.Germany, along with Italy, the US and France, has been one of the most fervent critics of Switzerland’s banking secrecy laws and has paid in the past for stolen data from Swiss banks in order to catch tax cheats. Pressure has already prompted Switzerland to relax its cherished bank secrecy and comply with international disclosure standards. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Germany pays €1.5m for Julius Baer clients’ data Monday 18 October 2010 7:41 pm Share Tags: NULLlast_img read more

RIP: the Rev. Patricia Reed

first_img Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Submit a Press Release [Anglican Journal] The Rev. Patricia Reed, who made history by becoming one of the first six women to be ordained priests in the Anglican Church of Canada, died on Aug. 1. She was 93.Ordained on Nov. 30, 1976, Reed served in the former diocese of Cariboo until her retirement.She later moved to the lower mainland and settled in the parish of Saint Cuthbert, North Delta, “where she continued to live out her priestly ministry until her death,” said the Diocese of New Westminster website.Before becoming a priest, Reed was a social worker. While working with children with special needs in Sacramento, California, Reed attended a lay readers’ course, “which awakened in her a desire to test a vocation to the ordained ministry,” said a Cariboo Contact article published in 1985.Reed’s history “reads like a pilgrim’s journal,” the article noted. “In 1950, she graduated from UBC [University of British Columbia] with a degree in social work, and worked in that field in Vancouver through 1961.”In 1961, after planning a six-week vacation in England, she ended up staying there to work as a social worker in Nottingham.“Deciding to return to Canada, she did the unusual—a trip by freighter through the Panama Canal,” added the article. “Stopping off in Sacramento, California, to again visit friends, she ended up staying — this time for five years.”Reed returned to Canada in 1973 to study at the Vancouver School of Theology. When she became assistant deacon at Quesnel in 1976, she did so with no expectation of becoming a priest since the church at that time did not yet ordain women.Bishop John Snowden watches as clergy of the Diocese of Cariboo receive communion from the Rev. Patricia Heed following her ordination in 1976 as the first woman priest in the diocese. Photo: Beryl M. Morris/Anglican Church of CanadaThe day she was ordained a priest by Bishop John Snowden at St. Michael and All Angels, Prince George, was “a moment of great joy for Pat…for the whole church of Canada,” said the article.Reed served as rector at McBride and Valemont from 1978 to 1982; she later moved to St. Hilda’s, Savona, where she also had a regular sacramental ministry at Ponderosa Lodge in Kamloops.She confessed “a great love” for ministry in small communities, for the outdoors, golf, sand and sea, said Cariboo Contact.

FBI warns of possible copycat attacks by domestic extremists in wake El Paso, Dayton

first_imgkrblokhin/iStock(WASHINGTON) — The FBI has underscored the ongoing threat of copycat shootings from domestic violent extremists in the wake of the El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH mass shootings that left at least 31 victims dead.“The FBI remains concerned that U.S.-based domestic violent extremists could become inspired by these and previous high-profile attacks to engage in similar acts of violence,” the bureau said in a statement later Sunday. “The FBI asks the American public to report to law enforcement any suspicious activity that is observed either in person or online,” the statement said.In the wake of the recent attacks, FBI Director Chris Wray has told senior FBI officials to put together a new threat assessment looking at mass shootings.John Bash, the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Texas, said Sunday that federal authorities are investigating the El Paso incident as an act of “domestic terrorism,” meaning the suspect was allegedly intent on “coercing and intimidating a civilian population.”Bash said federal authorities are also considering bringing hate crime and federal firearms charges against the accused shooter, Patrick Crusius, that carry the death penatly.“We’re going to do what we do to terrorists in this country, which is to deliver swift and certain justice,” Bash said at a news conference.El Paso authorities are examining what the police chief called a “manifesto” they believe was written by the shooter and shows a possible “nexus” to a hate crime.The FBI is currently investigating nearly 850 people across the United States as possible domestic terrorists, an FBI official said at a congressional hearing in May.The Gun Violence Archive, said in 2019 to date there have been 33,195 active shooter incidents in the United States.The organization defines not just instances where people die in a mass shooting, but also injured.“Rather than just collecting incidents of death, GVA also catalogs incidents where a victim was injured by shooting or by a victim who was the subject of an armed robber or home invader. Incidents of defensive gun use, home owners who stop a home invasion, store clerks who stop a robbery, individuals who stop an assault or rape with a gun are also collected,” the organizations said.The U.S. Secret Service, in its most recent report, says in 2018, 41 percent of the cases had a pre-selected target. Seven of those attacks resulted in “harm to both the targeted person and random bystanders, and in three cases the harm was restricted to just those specifically targeted. In the remaining case, when the attacker could not find his intended targets at their workplaces,he randomly fired at other people associated with the office. In nearly two-thirds of the attacks (n = 16, 59%) harm was directed at persons indiscriminately.”According to the report, 56 percent of attacks in 2018 had stressors related to financial instability. The Secret Service says that “78% of the attackers in 2018 exhibited behavior that caused concern in others, that behavior is not limited to, Social media posts with alarming content , Stalking and harassing behaviors, Escalating anger or aggressive behavior, Increased depression, Changes in behavior and appearance, Increased drug use, Expressions of suicidal ideations, and Erratic behavior.”In cases such as the Tree of Life Synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the alleged killer posted on social media anti-Semitic messages on social media before the attack. And in Charlottesville, Virginia, James Fields, the man convicted of killing Heather Heyer, sent an Instagram direct message depicting a car plowing over protesters. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Poor start costs business £12bn

first_img Previous Article Next Article A lack of training for new recruits is costing UK businesses more than £12bna year, according to research. The Mori figures reveal that new employees are less productive than theycould be because they are receiving little or no induction training when theystart their job. Nearly 75 per cent of the 1,000 employees surveyed believe that they didn’tmake a significant contribution in their role when they first started. Recruitment company Newmonday, which commissioned the report, estimates thisis costing business £12bn a year. Even after being in a job for three months, nearly 30 per cent ofrespondents believe they still did not make a significant contribution. Fifteenper cent still feel this is the case after six months. Roderick Wijsmuller, managing director of Newmonday, believes that as workplacements become shorter employers are not viewing staff as a long-termplayers in the business. He said, “Skills are suffering as a result of poor investment inpeople, who are regarded as more temporary business assets. “British business needs to take responsibility and invest in peoplethough providing better training and induction programmes.” Poor start costs business £12bnOn 3 Jul 2001 in Personnel Today Comments are closed.

Move to prosecute over the Hatfield rail crash welcomed

first_imgMove to prosecute over the Hatfield rail crash welcomedOn 1 Aug 2003 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos. Tworail firms and six senior managers charged with manslaughterHealthand safety campaigners have welcomed the decision by the Crown ProsecutionService (CPS) to charge railway contractor Balfour Beatty, Network Rail(formerly Railtrack) and six senior managers with manslaughter in the wake ofthe Hatfield rail crash.However,the landmark move has come amid renewed fears that the Government’slong-awaited legislation on corporate man-slaughter may be delayed again.Sixsenior managers from the two firms and a further six men, including former bossGerald Corbett, appeared in court in July.DavidBergman, director of the Centre for Corporate Accountability, said the CPSdecision was “very significant”.Headded: “There have only ever been five companies convicted of manslaughter –all of which were small companies.“Thisis because the law requires that a company director or senior manager isprosecuted as an individual for the offence, before the company – a separatelegal entity – can be prosecuted.”Therehave only ever been two large companies that have been prosecuted formanslaughter: P&O European Ferries after the Zeebrugge disaster and GreatWestern Railways over the Southall rail crash. Both prosecutions failed.Onedifficulty is the necessity to have sufficient evidence to prosecute a companydirector or senior manager before the company itself can be prosecuted, Bergmanadded.GeorgeBrumwell, general secretary of construction workers’ union UCATT, said: “It isexcellent that the principle of charging both companies and individual managershas been established.”However,there has been dismay over an admission by the Government that a consultationprocess will accompany the publication of its corporate man-slaughterlegislation in the autumn and, as a result, it is feared this may lead tofurther delays.Thelegislation was a 1997 manifesto commitment and health and safety campaignershave long awaited its introduction.last_img read more

A new perspective on the longitudinal variability of the semidiurnal tide

first_imgThe longitudinal variability of the semidiurnal tide in the Antarctic upper mesosphere is investigated by comparison of observations from two radars at approximately opposite sides of Antarctica. Under the assumption that the tide is composed of an S = 2 (migrating) and S = 1 (westward-propagating, non-migrating) component only, the relative phases of the components are shown to vary with season such that the waves are typically in constructive interference during the winter (summer) months at longitudes around 0 degrees E (180 degrees E). We show that this has profound effects on the seasonal behaviour of the semidiurnal tide around 78 degrees S dependent on the longitude, and that no single-station observations at this latitude can be considered representative of a “zonal mean”. The superposition of these two waves is used to interpret differences in previously-published ground-based climatologies of the tide. Citation: Hibbins, R. E., O. J. Marsh, A. J. McDonald, and M. J.

YESTERYEAR: Evansville Museum by Pat Sides

first_imgThe Evansville Museum was organized in 1904, housed in a mansion in Sunset Park that had been built about 1850. The old structure was condemned in 1910, and for several years, the Museum’s holdings were scattered or lost. When the YWCA vacated their old building at 216 NW Second Street (seen here), the Museum re-opened there in 1928. Within the decade, plans were made to build a new and larger facility near the Ohio River, a dream that was realized in 1959 when the Museum returned to Sunset Park. In the distance of this photo, just left of center, the nine-foot metal statue of the Roman god Vulcan can be seen on top of Vulcan Plow Works at First and Ingle streets; it is now on display at the Evansville Museum.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img
