Owner of firm under INAC kickback probe linked to Cayman Islands investment

first_img(Screenshot from the now shuttered website for the Cayman Islands-based Turtle Island Funds. The website was shut down this week following queries from APTN.)–Editor’s note: This story was updated on Thursday to include information that Usand has now issued a notice under the Defamation Act against APTN and the company’s claim an internal document referred to in story was a draft and never seen by Sean McCoshen.Jorge Barrera APTN National NewsThe owner of a financial company currently under investigation by Indigenous Affairs was linked to a Cayman Islands-based firm which offered an investment fund that used “sovereign tax immunity” as a hook to entice dollars from Canadian First Nations into offshore accounts.Winnipeg-based Usand Group is currently being investigated by Indigenous Affairs for allegations it used kickbacks to secure financial deals with First Nation communities.Usand operates mainly as a broker between First Nations seeking funds and banks willing to lend. Usand has arranged several loans for First Nations through the Bank of Montreal.Read APTN’s original report on Usand and the kickback allegationsThe company is owned by Sean McCoshen, a Winnipeg investment banker who claims in Usand’s promotional material to have worked deals involving Bedouin clans in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates. The firm still features endorsements from former Peguis First Nation chief Glen Hudson and former Assembly of First Nations national chief Ovide Mercredi, who is currently the president of the Manitoba NDP.Until this past Monday, McCoshen was listed as one of the “team” members of a Cayman Islands mutual fund called Worldwin Funds SPC. McCoshen’s name was linked to a sub-fund called Turtle Island Funds which was geared to attract dollars from First Nations in Canada.According to its website, Worldwin is an “an open-ended mutual fund…created and organized as a segregated portfolio company.”Screeshot of Worldwin website showing Sean McCoshen was linked to the Turtle Island Funds. Worldwin scrubbed McCoshen from the website this week following queries from APTN.Windfield Sifton, one of Worldwin’s listed principals, said in an interview Monday that McCoshen was no longer part of the firm and the relationship ended about “six months ago.”Sifton said McCoshen’s name still appeared on the firm’s website as a result of an oversight.“We had a very brief discussion with going into business with Sean,” said Sifton, in a telephone interview from the Cayman Islands. “We had contemplated looking at a possible relationship, it has not generated or germinated at all… clearly the websites…and various different places need to be updated, need to be changed. I am not in charge of all of those processes.”McCoshen did not return a message left on his personal cell phone. He also did not respond to emails sent to his personal address. One of McCoshen’s assistants contacted APTN via email Tuesday asking all media queries be directed to her.As of this article’s posting neither McCoshen nor Usand responded to questions about McCoshen’s role with Worldwin or Turtle Island Funds.The company did post a statement on its Twitter account Wednesday saying it has done nothing wrong. The statement said Usand did hold a “few discussions” with Turtle Island.“The products and services offered by Turtle Island Fund were not a good match for our clients and we were unable to see a good fit between our mutual businesses,” said the statement.The statement also said Indigenous Affairs had not yet contacted Usand Group as part of any investigation.“Our work on behalf of bands is put under rigorous due diligence at the banks before any transaction occurs,” said the statement. “None of our financing activities have ever come by either the banks, accounting firms or by INAC.”Usand said its goal is to “bring modern financial solutions to Aboriginal communities in Canada. Thus far, we have been extremely successful and our clients have been very satisfied with our work.”The company has now issued a notice under the Defamation Act against APTN.Indigenous Affairs announced the investigation in January after APTN published a story citing an audio recording of a Usand official allegedly trying to bribe Barry Kennedy, the former chief of Carry the Kettle First Nation in Saskatchewan. APTN also obtained an internal Usand document that identified the use of “kickbacks” as a tactic in securing customers for the company. In a letter from its lawyer, Usand now claims the internal document was a draft and was never seen by McCoshen.Kennedy filed a complaint against Usand with the department and the RCMP in Regina. Indigenous Affairs has said evidence of illegality uncovered through its probe would also be turned over the Mounties.The RCMP has said it does not confirm or deny open investigations.No evidence of illegality was uncovered by APTN in the activities of Worldwin or any of its principals in the course of gathering information for this story.Worldwin follows all the laws and regulations of the Cayman Islands, said Sifton.“If you are writing a story about offshore, understand that the vast majority of offshore is not what you think it is,” said Sifton. “The Cayman Islands is the fifth largest financial centre in the world, the compliance…that you have to do on clients is extensive and if people tell you otherwise I will not do business with them.”Sifton denied Worldwin or Turtle Island Funds, the firm’s now-shuttered investment arm aimed at First Nations, handled any money from Usand’s clients.The Cayman Islands Gazette states the Turtle Island Commerce Fund was de-registered in July 2015. Sifton said the Gazette notice referred to Worldwin’s fund.Sifton initially said he couldn’t reveal why the fund was shut down. He then said it was due to a lack of interest. Sifton wouldn’t say whether Worldwin or Turtle Island handled any investments from First Nations in Canada.Bio of Larry Sault on Turtle Island Funds now defunct website.Sifton said he is still open to interest from First Nation investors.“I am an entrepreneur, I am a deal maker. I will always look at a deal when it comes across the table,” said Sifton, who is still involved with Worldwin. “An entrepreneur always looks for deal flow, so if the right deal was present…sure.”According to its now decommissioned website, Turtle Island Funds was also run by Sifton, Ron Whetung, a real estate agent from Curve Lake First Nation, and Larry Sault, the former chief of the Mississaugas of New Credit and owner of wealth management firm Sault Minds.LinkedIn profile of Ron Whetung. Sault could not be reached for comment. Whetung, who still lists himself as a vice president of Turtle Island Funds in a LinkedIn profile that also uses the funds’ defunct website imagery as a background, referred APTN to Sifton. Whetung is still involved with Worldwin.Turtle Island Funds appears to have first started in 2012 and, according to its initial website design, sought to cater to specific categories of potential First Nation investments including revenues from oil and gas, casinos, gold, pensions and resources.Screenshot of Turtle Island Funds website from 2012 shows the different categories for possible investment.Turtle Island Funds used a pitch that included the claim First Nations have an Aboriginal right—supported by the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples—to avoid paying taxes on investments through offshore banking, according to a PowerPoint presentation from 2012 obtained by APTN.“Tax avoidance is the legal utilization of the tax regime to one’s own advantage to reduce the amount of tax that is payable by means that are within the law,” according to a slide from the PowerPoint presentation. “First Nations inherent, treaty and Aboriginal right to sovereign tax immunity places our people under neither.”The PowerPoint touted the advantages of putting money into the Cayman Islands-based fund instead of Canadian banks.“No reporting, no tax regime, no government intervention…money available anytime, usually within 24 hours,” said the PowerPoint. “Turtle Island Fund was created by First Nation for First Nation. We have a vested interest…We guarantee asset protection. First Nation assets cannot be seized.”Turtle Island Funds PowerPoint slideAccording to Turtle Island Funds most recent website incarnation, which was taken down Tuesday, it operated as a “series of open-ended segregated portfolios organized for the First Nations of Turtle Island in the Cayman Islands.”Butterfield Bank’s Cayman Islands sector was identified as the funds’ banker.The often shadowy world of offshore banking was again in the spotlight this week after a network of over 100 media organizations around the globe, operating through the Washington D.C.-based International Consortium of Investigative Journalists released a blockbuster series of stories called the Panama Papers.The stories were based on the largest leak of data to date, a total of about 11.5 million records from Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca which operates as a lynchpin in the world of offshore banking. The massive data leak exposed the offshore holdings of 12 current and former political leaders.Neither Usand, Worldwin nor any of its principals have been named as part of the Panama Papers.jbarrera@aptn.ca@JorgeBarreralast_img read more

Lululemon explanation of CEO departure bordering on inadequate say experts

first_imgShareholder advocates and analysts are calling on Lululemon Athletica for more disclosure surrounding the abrupt resignation of its chief executive who “fell short” of the Canadian athleisure company’s conduct standards.Frank Allen, the executive director of the Canadian Foundation for Advancement of Investment Rights (FAIR Canada), said the Vancouver-apparel maker’s statements explaining the sudden departure of CEO Laurent Potdevin after four years at the helm were “thin.”“Shareholders, investors are entitled to a full explanation for something of this significance,” he said.The Vancouver-based apparel maker was mum on Tuesday after announcing a day earlier that Potdevin had resigned, effective immediately, and was no longer on its board of directors. Lululemon said in a statement it “expects all employees to exemplify the highest levels of integrity and respect for one another, and Mr. Potdevin fell short of these standards of conduct.”According to a filing to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Lululemon and Potdevin reached a separation agreement in connection with his resignation. Under the agreement, Lululemon will pay Potdevin a $3.35-million cash payment “as soon as practical” and another $1.65-million total in monthly instalments made over a year and a half.In return, Potdevin agreed not to sue the company and would co-operate with it in the future, among other stipulations.Lululemon has begun searching for a new CEO, the company also said.The news prompted at least two U.S. law firms to launch investigations into Lululemon.New Orleans-based firm Kahn, Swick & Foti, said their investigation is focused on whether the company’s board breached their fiduciary duties.Michael Swick, the firm’s owner, principal and partner, questioned Lululemon’s $5-million payment to Potdevin. He noted that under the executive’s employment agreement in its latest proxy statement he is not entitled to any severance if termination is voluntary.However, Lululemon used the term “resignation” in its release, and was unwilling to share further details out of respect of the privacy of the people involved.“We don’t believe that the board is following their own constructs,” he said.New York-based law firm Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman also said Tuesday it was launching an investigation.Corporate governance expert Richard Leblanc says Lululemon’s public statements on the matter are “bordering on inadequate.”“The downside of having succinct, inadequate disclosure is that people make inferences,” said LeBlanc, a governance professor at York University. “And you lose the ability, as a board, to control the message. So, something a little more fulsome would have been better.”Canaccord Genuity analyst Camilo Lyon said in a research note Tuesday that the Lululemon board has moved quickly to quarantine the fallout that could have ensued if details were to have been made public.However, he noted, judging by the company’s specific language in its statement, “we can only assume there were claims of inappropriate behaviour.”Still, Canaccord does not see Potdevin’s departure as a major setback for Lululemon, “although uncertainty will remain elevated until the CEO position is filled,” Lyon added. Shares of the Lululemon were relatively flat in New York on Tuesday afternoon.Major Lululemon shareholders such as Advent International Corp., Manning & Napier Advisors LLC, The Vanguard Group Inc. and Fidelity Management & Research company declined to comment Tuesday, while BlackRock Institutional Trust Company did not immediately respond to requests.Chip Wilson, Lululemon’s founder and shareholder, said in a statement that yesterday’s events mark “an opportunity to secure a culturally-aligned leader who values athletics, the West Coast lifestyle and a deep commitment to re-establish the profit-driving people development program that was a cornerstone to our success.”last_img read more

Ontario orders Hydro One to cap CEO pay at 15 million

TORONTO — Ontario has issued a directive to Hydro One, ordering it to pay its CEO no more than $1.5 million per year.The partially privatized utility and the government have been at loggerheads over executive compensation, with Hydro One refusing repeated requests to slash the pay.In a statement today, Energy Minister Greg Rickford says he has issued a formal directive to cap the CEO compensation.It also includes a requirement that the board chair be paid no more than $120,000 and board members be paid no more than $80,000 per year.Hydro One had submitted a proposal for maximum CEO compensation to be nearly $2.8 million, saying it was taking into account the need to attract and retain highly qualified leadership.The Progressive Conservatives campaigned hard against Hydro One salaries in last year’s election campaign, dubbing then-CEO Mayo Schmidt the “six-million-dollar man,” and after they were elected, one of the government’s first acts was to force Schmidt’s resignation.The Canadian Press read more

UN committed to facilitating Middle East peace process – Ban Kimoon

17 June 2007Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today voiced concern about deteriorating conditions in the Middle East while pledging the full support of the United Nations for facilitating the peace process and providing relief aid in the region. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today voiced concern about deteriorating conditions in the Middle East while pledging the full support of the United Nations for facilitating the peace process and providing relief aid in the region.Mr. Ban said the Prime Minister’s visit “takes place at a crucially important time, when the whole international community has been gravely concerned about what has been happening” in the Middle East. “The deteriorating situation in Gaza and in the region has been the source of great concern to all of us, and the failure of the national unity government in Palestine is also a great concern,” said Mr. Ban, calling it a “setback in terms of humanitarian security and the peace process in the Middle East.” The Secretary-General added, “I know that Israel has legitimate concerns over security, placing challenges to them. At the same time, this is very serious for the United Nations – we have all the humanitarian concerns.”He noted that there are many Palestinian refugees who are living on daily assistance from the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) and the UN World Food Programme (WFP) – “over 10,000 United Nations employees, who are mainly Palestinians, whose security and safety are in danger.”Mr. Ban called for a concerted response. “We need to overcome this crisis with common efforts, as well as wisdom. At the same time, I would urge all the parties concerned to exercise maximum restraint, and to resolve all the pending issues through peaceful means, through dialogue.” read more

European leaders say accord between Greece creditors is possible ahead of Mondays

ATHENS, Greece – A day ahead of a crucial emergency eurozone summit, European leaders renewed efforts to reach a deal between Greece and its creditors that would allow the debt-ridden country to avoid a default and a potentially disastrous exit from the euro.Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras had separate telephone conversations Sunday with French President Francois Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, the prime minister’s press office said.Tsipras “presented to the three leaders Greece’s proposal for a mutually beneficial agreement, which will provide a permanent solution and not just postpone tackling the problem,” the press office statement said.Later Hollande told reporters in Milan, where he met with Italian Premier Matteo Renzi, that everything must be done to keep financially-ailing Greece in the Eurozone.Hollande said that “if the Greeks leave the eurozone it won’t be positive for the Greeks or Europeans.”“We need stability” especially since much of Europe is beginning to rebound economically, he said. “For this reason we must reach an accord.”Renzi added that European leaders were working to have an agreement with Greece “in the next hours,” but didn’t provide any details.Tsipras has been meeting with his senior ministers all day and will leave for Brussels later Sunday.Talks between cash-strapped Greece and its creditors on the completion of an earlier bailout deal had already hit a snag before the January election of the anti-bailout, anti-austerity coalition government headed by the radical leftist Syriza party. As a result, Greece has not received any bailout funds since summer 2014 and its ailing banking system is only kept afloat through a weekly infusion of emergency funds from the European Central Bank.The new government’s radically different approach, essentially denying the need for austerity measures which it calls “recessionary” has often stretched the talks in the past five months to the breaking point.Now the race is on to prevent the country’s default. Greece is facing a June 30 deadline to make a 1.6 billion euro ($1.8 billion) loan repayment to the International Monetary Fund, which, at present, it would be unable to make, and even bigger payments to the ECB in July. With both Greece and the creditors seemingly locked in a who-will-blink-first contest, the battle is on to bridge the gaps and secure a deal.The governing Syriza party is holding an Athens rally later Sunday in support of the government — that comes after a strong rally Thursday of those favouring a deal with the EU.Syriza and similar leftist political groups have organized “solidarity to Greece” rallies across Europe over the weekend or joined related protests such as an anti-austerity march in the United Kingdom on Saturday.___D’Emilio reported from Rome, Italy. European leaders say accord between Greece, creditors is possible ahead of Monday’s summit Demonstrators hold flags and banners during a protest march in solidarity with Greece in the center of Brussels on Sunday, June 21, 2015. Heads of state in the eurogroup will meet in Brussels on Monday for a special summit to discuss the financial crisis with Greece.

Can We Just Let One Season End Before Predicting The Next

This summer was actually an unusual moment in that regard, between the NBA and NHL. It was the first time in our data where both leagues’ champions opened in fourth place or worse in the next season’s odds at the same time. This is perhaps because both the Raptors and Blues were first-time champions in their respective sports, and each was a relative surprise champion as well (the Blues began the season as the 19th-ranked betting choice, 40-to-1 to win it all, while the Raptors were ninth with 60-to-1 title odds).This isn’t the first time the books have shown an affinity for a team — like, say, the Lightning — whose previous season didn’t end in glorious fashion. But that doesn’t happen very often. Granting that some sports’ playoff structures don’t feature rounds of equivalent size before their playoff quarterfinals,3Both the NBA and NHL feature a round of 16 before their quarterfinals, while MLB and the NFL each have a round of 12. Tampa Bay joined the 2012 Pittsburgh Penguins and 2010 Miami Heat as the only teams in our sample to exit in the first round of the NBA or NHL playoffs and then immediately become championship favorites the day after the playoffs ended. (And that Heat team comes with a special disclaimer we’ll talk about later.) 2011Patriots✘Phillies✘ Sources: SPORTSBETTING.AG, BETONLINE.AG A new champion doesn’t always get very much respect from the oddsmakers in the immediate wake of its victory. The Raptors, for instance, opened the 2020 championship betting at fourth in the NBA (8-to-1 odds), while the Blues started 2020 in a tie for fifth in the NHL (12-to-1 odds) right after hoisting the Cup. Most of the time, however, the champs stay pretty close to the top of the sport. Only five of the 45 new champs we looked at fell out of the top five for their league when looking ahead to the following season: The 2008 Philadelphia Phillies (sixth looking ahead to 2009), the 2015 Denver Broncos (seventh for 2016), the 2018 Washington Capitals (eighth for 2019), the 2011 New York Giants (eighth for 2012) and the 2012 Baltimore Ravens (13th for 2013). 29– * The Patriots were NFL co-favorites in 2016 and won the Super Bowl.Sources: SPORTSBETTING.AG, BETONLINE.AG Number of champions in the NBA, MLB, NFL and NHL with a certain ranking in the next-day betting odds for the following season, since 2009 2nd12– In the last couple of weeks, the Tampa Bay Lightning and Milwaukee Bucks both earned themselves a dubious honor. Each was crowned a champion … of next season’s betting odds. (Congrats! That and $2.45 will get you a large1Sorry, venti. coffee at Starbucks.) According to data provided to FiveThirtyEight by the betting sites SportsBetting.ag and BetOnline.ag, Tampa Bay was installed as 8-to-1 favorites to win the 2020 Stanley Cup within hours of the St. Louis Blues winning the 2019 Stanley Cup, while the Bucks were made 9-to-2 favorites for next year’s NBA title before the confetti even settled on the Toronto Raptors’ 2019 victory.It’s all part of a movement toward increased focus on next year’s potential winners, practically before the current champs can even be entered into the record books. “The day-after, next-year title odds have certainly become a big deal in our industry,” said Scott Cooley, a spokesman for the two oddsmakers above. “We started doing them with the online books maybe six to seven years ago, and Vegas has caught on over the last couple of years.”The media has hopped on the trend as well in recent years. ESPN reported on the 2020 NBA favorite picks in the betting markets roughly 17 hours after the Raptors’ Game 6 win over the Golden State Warriors ended,2ESPN is owned by Disney, which also owns ABC News, which owns FiveThirtyEight. and often the reports will come even sooner after the championship than that. Speculation about the next champ can practically bump the current champ out of the news cycle.Those two kinds of teams — current champs and speculative future champs — overlap surprisingly infrequently, depending on the sport. In the data we analyzed, which covers the four major men’s pro leagues going back to either 2009 (for the NBA, MLB and NFL) or 2010 (NHL), the just-crowned champion was installed as the following season’s favorite 17 times in 45 chances (38 percent). Six of the 12 defending NBA champs since 2009 were in that category, which makes sense for a sport in which previous postseason success plays a disproportionate role in the championship hunt. By comparison, the defending Super Bowl winner was instantly named the next NFL favorite just three times in 11 chances over the same span, a number that includes the current Patriots, who are fresh off a win in Super Bowl LIII.The Pats are perennial next-day picks, gaining that distinction seven times in the 11 NFL seasons we looked at, including 2019. (That’s sort of what happens when you maintain the top dynasty in the history of football, if not all of pro sports.) But even the Patriots have failed to convert those next-day titles into real ones with some regularity: They won as favorites in 2016 and 2018, but lost in 2009, 2011, 2012 and 2017. That’s not too surprising — if we look at the history of next-day favorites, they lose far more often than they win (because even the favorite is typically an underdog against the field): Number of next-day betting odds favorites in the NBA, MLB, NFL and NHL that finished the previous playoffs a given number of rounds from the championship, since 2009 2017Patriots✘Cubs✘ 6th1– 13th1– 10th0 9th0 36– 112– 2009——Celtics✘ 016– 2009Patriots✘Yankees✔ 7th1– 2010Colts✘Yankees✘ 2016Panthers, Patriots*, Seahawks✔Cubs✔ 2013Penguins✘Heat✔ 11th0 2015Seahawks✘Dodgers, Nationals✘ Sources: SPORTSBETTING.AG, BETONLINE.AG 1st17– 2018Patriots✔Astros✘ More than half of the freshly minted next-day favorites in our sample had either just won (35 percent) or lost (26 percent) in their sport’s championship round. So it’s pretty unusual to see a team such as the Lightning flame out in the playoffs and then immediately be named favorites for the following season. Then again, Tampa Bay had been named next-day favorites going into the 2018-19 season as well (after losing a tough seven-game conference final to the eventual-champ Capitals), then proceeded to rattle off one of the most dominant regular seasons in hockey history before falling flat in one of the game’s most epic playoff disappointments. The 2019 NHL playoffs were a chaotic mess anyway — the eventual champs fired their coach midseason and were playoff longshots for most of the regular season — so it might have been the perfect mix of factors to elevate a team back to favorite status despite a postseason flop.These next-day odds can change pretty quickly anyway. Although the Bucks were technically 2020 favorites in the moments after Toronto won it all, the Los Angeles Lakers usurped that distinction just a day later, being installed as 7-to-2 favorites after trading for former Pelicans superstar Anthony Davis. It was a pretty remarkable leap to the top of the heap, given that LeBron James and LA didn’t even make the playoffs the previous season. (None of the next-day favorites we’ve been looking at in this data set could say that.)But that’s nothing compared with the summer of 2010, when the oddsmakers avoided officially releasing the next-day NBA odds altogether. We included their first batch of odds in the calculation above — hence the Heat’s jump to No. 1 for 2011 — but those numbers were actually released after free agency had begun. Although the 2010 season ended on June 17, odds for 2011 weren’t posted until July 9 because of the uncertainty around LeBron’s free-agency “Decision.” Considering that this summer may rival 2010 in terms of the amount of NBA talent on the move, it’s not impossible that the 2020 favorite in the NBA betting markets will shift again in the next few weeks.The era of immediate speculation does nothing to help temper the expectations placed on teams who are “supposed” to win. For example, the Los Angeles Dodgers — who haven’t won a World Series since 1988 — have been named next-day favorites twice in the past six seasons (in 2014 and 2015) and have never ranked lower than third place in the next-day odds over that span. With each passing instance of an on-paper championship (and no real one), a team’s disappointment comes even more into focus.But the trend of impatiently looking ahead to next season doesn’t seem like it will let up anytime soon. As the lines begin to blur between one season’s end and the next one’s beginning — particularly given the way fans consume sports now and how the media covers it — there’s too much interest in far-off futures odds for anyone to ignore them. So that means we’re in store for plenty more speculative champions being crowned, even if the actual ones aren’t finished celebrating yet. read more

Building has begun to turn a vacant Bray site into a shopping

The centre will open onto Main Street in the town.The site is being built by developer Oakmount, which also undertook the redevelopment of The Dean Hotel in Dublin and the Stella theatre and cocktail bar in Rathmines. The main-street site has been left vacant for more than 20 years after a series of failed attempts to develop the plot of land into a major retail destination.In 2017, Wicklow County Council put out a tender for the contract to oversee the design and development of the proposed shopping centre.

Sidaction 2013 plus de 5 millions deuros récoltés en trois jours

first_imgSidaction 2013 : plus de 5 millions d’euros récoltés en trois joursCette année, le Sidaction 2013 a récolté 5,1 millions d’euros de promesses de dons. Selon les organisateurs, cela représente 900.000 euros de plus que l’an passé.Trois jours après le lancement de l’édition 2013 du Sidaction, c’est un bilan prometteur qu’ont dévoilé les organisateurs. Selon les derniers chiffres, la manifestation a réussi à rassembler 5,1 millions d’euros de promesses de dons en un week-end. C’est 900.000 euros supplémentaires, soit 25% de plus qu’en 2012. Une année qui avait d’ailleurs enregistré une baisse de 20% des dons par rapport à 2011, rapporte l’AFP. À lire aussiSIDA : 10 symptômes qui doivent alerterOn retrouve donc cette fois un niveau cohérent avec celui des années antérieures, ce qui réjouit les organisateurs. Dans un communiqué, ils se sont ainsi dits “heureux de constater qu’après une année 2012 difficile, due, entre autres, à un attentisme liée à une échéance électorale majeure en France, les Français sont attachés à la lutte contre le sida”. Comme le soulignent les organisateurs, Sidaction est la seule association de lutte contre le sida à financer la recherche. D’où l’importance des promesses de dons récoltées chaque année à l’occasion du Sidaction. L’objectif est bien entendu de trouver un traitement à cette maladie aujourd’hui incurable et à trouver d’autres alternatives aux trithérapies qui sont des traitements à vie. Toutefois, ce bilan pourrait devenir encore plus prometteur au cours des prochains jours.

first_imgBorussia Dortmund were beaten by Schalke 04 in the Ruhr derby and Marco Reus tried to find some reasons for this bitter 2-0 defeat – and he insisted that the players are the only ones to blame.The experienced offensive midfielder claimed that they started to play just for the last 25 minutes and it just wasn’t enough to beat such an organized and well-prepared team as Schalke were today – so by saying that, it is clear that the final defeat was almost inevitable.The former Germany international spoke about his side’s loss as he said, according to bvb.de:borussia dortmund, marco reus, jadon sancho, paco alcacerReport: Dortmund hammer four past Leverkusen George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund put four past Bayer Leverkusen.Borussia Dortmund leapfrogged Bayern Munich to claim second place in the Bundesliga. After handing out a 4-0 thrashing of…“We did not play well in the first half, while Schalke got themselves into space well and created more chances on goal.”“Then the game goes to 1-0 for them and it was obvious that we would have to go for it. With a different system, we got more width and depth into our play, and could create more chances on goal as a consequence.”“It is clear that we’ve only got ourselves to blame for the first 65 minutes. We didn’t close down space and we let Schalke play. Our performance must be better next week”, said Marco Reus looking ahead to the forthcoming encounter.”last_img read more

Dont Get Beaten by a Robot 3 Ways to Ensure Your Job

first_imgOctober 17, 2018 A common thread in conversations about automation is the uncertainty people feel about their long-term job security. Despite (or perhaps because of) automation’s impressive ability to streamline operations and costs in certain industries, many people remain hesitant to double down on these technologies because of their fears about how automation could affect the future workforce.Related: How Robot Therapists Can Fill a Gap in Health CareWhat causes those fears are the experts who predict that robots and automated technology could replace as many as 800 million jobs worldwide by 2030, according to a recent McKinsey report. On the other hand, there are experts who predict that this number could be misleading due to the fact that jobs will simply be forced to change rather than eliminated altogether.Although it’s still unclear exactly what the future workforce will look like, it’s safe to predict that it will differ from today and that robots and automation will play an important role in that shift. Of course, just because certain jobs will no longer be required does not mean humans will no longer have jobs.Employees can almost certainly expect to work in an interactive automation environment in which we humans will work alongside a robot or automated technology of some sort — which is likely something many of us workers are already doing. Here, then, is how to prepare:Avoid jobs that robots are good at.Employees worried about the future  should understand the type of work that is ripe for automation, and pursue job opportunities that don’t solely rely on those types of tasks.Specifically, robots excel at tasks that require specificity and repetition, which might tire out human workers, cause them to perform the task less effectively over time or place them in potentially dangerous situations. By identifying and pursuing opportunities that avoid these traits as much as possible, you can establish job security by concentrating on a more dynamic set of requirements and skills.Bolster your soft skills.Robots thrive in environments that don’t require frequent change, variation or creativity. Luckily for us, these are exactly the types of environments where humans excel. Employees should seek out these types of workplaces and actively work on developing the skills that will thrive when they’re there — including communication, adaptability and creative thinking — to maximize their marketability now and into the future.Related: Elon Musk Says That Too Many Robots Slowed Down Model 3 ProductionAccording to a 2018 report from McKinsey, “Accompanying the adoption of advanced technologies into the workplace will be an increase in the need for workers with finely tuned social and emotional skills — skills that machines are a long way from mastering.”That research found that demand for social and emotional skills, including leadership and the management of others, will rise by 24 percent, to represent 22 percent of the total hours employees will work.Additionally, demand for higher cognitive skills will grow moderately overall, but will rise sharply for some of these skills, especially creativity the report said. Future students should work on creativity skills, as well. As McKinsey noted, skills such as empathy are innate, and others, such as advanced communication and creative problem-solving, can be learned. Employees need to understand their own social and emotional talents and develop those areas where they might be lacking, to ensure they continue delivering value in the age of automation.Embrace certain types of automation.Another way to ensure that your job continues to be valued by your organization is to find ways to automate the non-value-add parts of your job so that you can focus on value-add activities. In other words, are there tasks that you perform on a regular basis that can’t be directly tied to the company’s bottom line? If so, would a technology taking on those tasks free you to do more valuable work?A tangible example is the forklift driver who transports a load from one end of a huge warehouse to the other. The task itself is a necessary cost, but adds little value to the bottom line. It’s important for operations, of course, but the primary function is simply to move material from one place to the next; it doesn’t increase the material’s value.Just as importantly, a forklift driving job doesn’t leverage a human employee’s capabilities. If that material transport job is taken over by a self-driving industrial vehicle, that employee can still be valuable by learning fleet management, operational organization, logistics analytics, vehicle health and maintenance or any number of other high-leverage, value-add capabilities.Whether you’re directly identifying tasks or workflows that could be automated, or finding new ways to bring additional value as automation is added, look to embrace certain types of that automation. That move will be key to advancing your career in the workplace of the future. Don’t neglect old-school networking.Digital communication tools like social media, email and texting enable simple communication with hundreds of people in dozens of countries, but that communication shouldn’t come entirely at the expense of face-to-face conversations.Make an effort to network in-person with colleagues outside the office and at local industry meetings to advance your larger professional network. Attend those industry conferences that everyone loves to hate; not only will you be exposed to the latest advances in your profession, but you will make career-enhancing connections (and I don’t see robots attending those anytime soon!).Human contact cannot easily be replaced. We personally may not be responsible for implementing and overseeing automation in the workforce, but as a species, humans are the true architects behind any system, automated or otherwise. Our creative and imaginative capabilities are what will continue to illustrate our value to the workforce (just as they have with other technology upheavals).Related: Forget Drones: These Delivery Robots Prefer the SidewalkThe ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus noted that “Change is the only constant,” which still holds true when it comes to humanity’s role in the workforce today. While a number of disruptions will continue to change our roles within the workplace, employees can fortify their ability to adapt to these changes by strengthening those skills that are uniquely human.

first_img 0 Comments   Share   Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Top Stories “The main thing was that there was no intention for anybody to be hurt on the play and hopefully (Campbell) will be back soon.” The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians called it the dirtiest play he’s seen in 37 years of coaching.That claim can’t be qualified, but Denver tight end Julius Thomas’ chop block has shelved Cardinals defensive end Calais Campbell for anywhere from one to three weeks.The NFL also released a statement Monday confirming that it was indeed an illegal “lure” block, in which tackle Ryan Clady got into a pass blocking position without engaging Campbell while Thomas went low to the legs of the defensive end. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling “They can sugarcoat it any way they want. The worst kind of chop block is when a guy never expects it. That’s when somebody flashes their hands to pass-block you and somebody hits you from the side,” Arians told Bickley and Marotta Monday on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM.Thomas spoke to the media Monday, and claimed there was no malicious intent on his part, instead citing poor communication between he and Clady.“Sometimes we’re trying to communicate between the tackles and the tight ends and everything isn’t always communicated as clearly as we’d like it to be,” he said. “We would have liked it to be a cleaner play, something that wasn’t as gray, but that’s part of football and it’s something that we’ll work out as an offense.”Thomas was flagged on the play and the penalty negated a 77-yard touchdown pass from Peyton Manning to Demaryius Thomas.Arians believes that Thomas should be suspended until Campbell is healthy enough to play again. The fourth-year tight end also isn’t too concerned with the strong words coming from Cardinals’ headquarters.“I don’t spend much time worried about what others think about myself or what should happen,” he said. “You can spend all day with all the opinions of any play of any game of what others think. I’m not going to pay too much attention to what (Arians) feels should happen. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more

Jay Asher’s “Thirteen Reasons Why” and Sherman Alexie’s “The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian” top the American Library Association’s list of “challenged” books from 2017, those most objected to by parents and other community members. (AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin, File) center_img NEW YORK, N.Y. – Before allegations of sexual harassment, Jay Asher and Sherman Alexie were facing criticisms of a different kind.Asher’s “Thirteen Reasons Why” and Alexie’s “The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian” top the American Library Association’s list of “challenged” books from 2017, those most objected to by parents and other community members. The list also includes Harper Lee’s “To Kill a Mockingbird” and one of last year’s top-selling young adult novels, Angie Thomas’ “The Hate U Give.”Complaints about books range from the theme of suicide in “Thirteen Reasons Why” to profanity and sexual content in Alexie’s book. James LaRue, who runs the library association’s Office for Intellectual Freedom, said that future challenges could well be based on the authors themselves. Last year, Bill Cosby’s “Little Bill Books” were on the ALA list because of multiple accusations of sexual assault against the actor-comedian.“I personally believe the book is distinct from the author,” LaRue said. “But when a librarian faces that kind of challenge, my advice is to treat it like any other kind of challenge. You look at the nature of the challenge, consider the context and make the decision based on the needs of the local community.”Over the past few months, several writers have had book deals and other projects cancelled or have been kicked out of organizations. Asher was dropped by his literary agent and expelled from the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. Alexie ended up turning down one of the library association’s highest honours, the Carnegie Medal, which had been awarded for his memoir “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me.” The prize was announced in early February, just before allegations surfaced that he had harassed numerous women.The ALA list is part of the association’s State of America’s Libraries report and marks the beginning of National Library Week, which runs through April 14. Books drawing attention, whether because of sales or a film adaptation, often become more likely to receive challenges. In 2017, “Thirteen Reasons Why” was adapted into a popular Netflix series, while “The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian” has been widely read and taught since coming out a decade ago. In previous years, Maya Angelou’s “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings” and J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter” series have been among notable challenged works.Asher and Alexie have been on the list before; “The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian” topped the list for 2014, while Alexie’s book and “Thirteen Reasons Why” finished second and third, respectively, for 2012.Books on the new list were a mix of older works such as Lee’s novel (violence, racial language) and Khaled Hosseini’s “The Kite Runner” (“May lead to terrorism”) and more recent books, including Cory Silverberg’s “Sex is a Funny Word” and “I Am Jazz,” by Jessica Herthel and Jazz Jennings (“Gender identity”). Three works were cited for “LGBT content”: the gay-themed penguin story “And Tango Makes Three,” by Peter Parnell and Justin Richardson; Alex Gino’s “George”; and Raina Telgemeier’s “Drama.”The association tallied 356 challenges, up from 323 last year, but in line with numbers over the past decade. The ALA, which believes that reported cases are just a fraction of actual challenges, bases its list on news reports and on accounts submitted from libraries. A challenge is defined as a “formal, written complaint filed with a library or school requesting that materials be removed because of content or appropriateness.”LaRue did not have a number for books actually pulled from shelves, although he cited some examples. After seven students from a Colorado community killed themselves, a school district official in 2017 ordered librarians to temporarily stop circulating “Thirteen Reasons Why.” An Arizona school district pulled “The Kite Runner,” and offered no explanation. A superintendent in Katy, Texas, pulled “The Hate U Give” after a man attending a school board meeting complained of the book’s language and depiction of drug use.____Top 10 list: http://www.ala.org/advocacy/bbooks/NLW-Top10State of Libraries Report: http://bit.ly/soal-2018last_img read more
