The US accounting watchdog has agreed with the UK’s Professional Oversight Board that it can examine UK firms that audit US-traded companies, getting round an EU ruling in 2008 that prevented such US scrutiny. The US opened up its accounting firms in the recent Dodd-Frank Act, which overhauls parts of its financial system, and is negotiating agreements with several other countries. Last month the New York attorney general brought a civil action against Ernst & Young for allegedly failing to flag up failures at Lehman Brothers ahead of its collapse. center_img whatsapp Show Comments ▼ by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’DefinitionTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Enter Your Email Address Image source: Getty Images Scottish Mortgage (LSE:SMT) shares had a phenomenal run in 2020. But some investors are concerned whether the investment trust can replicate its success in 2021. After all, past performance isn’t an indication of future performance.I think Scottish Mortgage shares are still worth me buying though. Here I’ll explain five reasons why I’d hold the stock in my portfolio.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…#1 – Experienced investment duoI think the first thing to note is that when buying a trust, I’m really paying for the investment experience of the fund manager(s). The same applies for Scottish Mortgage shares.The portfolio is run by investment duo James Anderson and Tom Slater. Both have been with Baillie Gifford, the asset manager behind the trust, for a long time. This gives me some comfort that the fund managers have developed their own style at a reputable investment house and are unlikely to make knee-jerk decisions.#2 – Long-term track recordI don’t think Scottish Mortgage’s impressive performance is a fluke. One of the things I look out for is consistent performance over the long term. With Scottish Mortgage shares, I get exactly that.I can’t deny the trust’s strong long-term performance. This shows me that the fund managers are adaptable and can deliver strong returns during various market conditions.This really emphasises my first reason for buying Scottish Mortgage shares. I’m paying for the investment experience of Anderson and Slater.#3 – Unquoted companiesI think one of the great things about Scottish Mortgage is that I get exposure to some private companies as well as listed ones. Approximately 17% of the portfolio is invested in such unlisted firms.Anderson and Slater think this space is full of compelling opportunities. Current private holdings include Stripe and TransferWise. This is  another reason why I’d buy Scottish Mortgage.#4 – TeslaOne of the concerns a lot of investors had was the large weighting to Tesla. At one point the stock accounted for 12% of the portfolio. I must admit I’ve got to applaud both Anderson and Slater on taking the large Tesla stock position and letting it run.The fund managers called the stock right. They did well to maintain the Tesla position as it was being included in the S&P 500 index last year. Now that has happened, they’ve reduced their holding to 5.1% of the portfolio (as of the end of January).They’ve taken profits on Tesla and I don’t blame them. It highlights to me their prudence as fund managers. A quality I like in investment professionals.The risksLet me pause here and say that Scottish Mortgage shares aren’t without risk. The performance delivered in 2020 isn’t guaranteed to repeat in 2021. The stock is trading close to all-time highs, which may make some investors uncomfortable.The portfolio is concentrated and the fund managers aren’t afraid to takes large stock positions. This could go right but also could work against them. If a stock underperforms, it’s likely Scottish Mortgage shares will fall in value too.#5 – Cost focusWhat I think is refreshing is the fund managers’ focus on driving down the cost of investing. Scottish Mortgage doesn’t charge a hefty performance fee. The trust also has a competitive ongoing charge of 0.36%.In my opinion, Scottish Mortgage shares offer investors like me a low-cost global portfolio with an impressive long-term track record. For these reasons I’d buy the stock. See all posts by Nadia Yaqublast_img read more

The execution of Deborah Danner

first_imgDeborah Danner was executed for being mentally ill. The 66-year-old Black woman was killed Oct. 18 by New York Police Sgt. Hugh Barry.Barry was part of a team of six cops who confronted the elderly woman in her Bronx apartment. Claiming she was carrying a baseball bat, Barry fired two bullets that struck Danner.With so many cops on the scene, concerned people are asking why Barry had to shoot. Even New York Mayor Bill de Blasio declared that Danner “should not have died.”In his eight-year police career, Barry has been sued twice for brutality. New York City paid $25,000 to Gregory Peters, who said he was pepper-sprayed and beat up by Barry and another officer after leaving the B.B. King Blues Club in 2010. (New York Daily News, Oct. 19) But charges of brutality didn’t prevent Barry from being promoted.Danner suffered from schizophrenia, a mental illness. Neighbors called 911 because they thought she was acting irrationally. Instead of getting help, Danner was killed.Never forget Eleanor BumpursThirty-two years before Danner was slain, another 66-year-old Black woman was killed in her Bronx apartment by police. Eleanor Bumpurs was slaughtered on Oct. 29, 1984, when Emergency Services Officer Stephen Sullivan fired his 12-gauge shotgun twice at her.Bumpurs was mentally ill and physically disabled. Sullivan and other cops came to evict her from a New York City Housing Authority apartment because she was four months late on her $98.65 rent.That’s how much Black lives are worth under capitalism. In a trial without a jury, Judge Fred Eggert found Sullivan not guilty of manslaughter.Almost five years before she was killed, Danner wrote a moving essay of what it’s like to live with schizophrenia. “Flashbacks, depression and stigma” was how she described her illness.Referring to the Bumpurs’ killing, Danner wrote that “it was not an isolated incident.”Danner was a skilled worker in the information technology field, dealing with management information systems. Her family felt that the stress of performing hi-tech jobs helped her disease to relapse. Danner was fired from one job after she told her boss about having schizophrenia.She ended her essay with “I smile rarely, but I am surviving.” (New York Times, Oct. 19) Danner survived — until Sgt. Barry killed her.Being labeled emotionally disturbed shouldn’t be a death sentence, but it’s often an excuse for cops to kill. An estimated 124 people with mentally illness were killed by police across the U.S. in just the first six months of 2015. (Washington Post, June 30, 2015)Mohamed Bah was also executed by New York police. The 28-year-old immigrant from Guinea worked as a cab driver while attending Borough of Manhattan Community College.His mother, Hawa Bah, called for an ambulance on Sept. 25, 2012, because her son was depressed and acting erratically. Instead of medical assistance, police came and fired 10 shots at Mohamed in his Manhattan apartment.According to Bah family lawyer Debra Cohen, the firing started after a stun gun fired by an officer struck another cop, who yelled out, “I’ve been stabbed. Shoot him.” A knife was conveniently placed at the scene.Cohen said that “a police officer straddled Mr. Bah while he was still alive and breathing on the ground, bent over and shot him in the head to finish the job.” (Huffington Post, Oct. 7, 2015)Capitalism barely tolerates people with mental illness or any disablity. The billionaire class is willing to exploit them only if they can make a profit off their labor.To all the Trumps — including the big capitalists supporting Hillary Clinton — millions of people with disabilities are just broken machinery, fit only for the scrap heap.In socialist Cuba, people with mental illness and other disabilities are treated with love and respect. They can’t be fired from a job, like Danner was. Cubans remember how police under the U.S.-backed Fulgencio Batista dictatorship in the 1950s used torture.Mothers whose sons were killed by U.S. police found this out when they visited Cuba this spring. The delegation included two mothers from the Bronx, Iris Baez and Juanita Young.As singer Aretha Franklin would put it, socialist Cuba has what we need: respect.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

EPA Set to Back Down on Ethanol Waivers

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE By NAFB News Service – Feb 27, 2020 EPA Set to Back Down on Ethanol Waivers Home Indiana Agriculture News EPA Set to Back Down on Ethanol Waivers The Environmental Protection Agency is backing down on its extensive use of blending exemptions for smaller oil refiners. A Reuters report says the decision comes after last month’s 10th ​Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that vacated three existing waivers and set stricter requirements for exempting refineries from their obligations under the Renewable Fuels Standard.It’s been well-documented that the EPA drastically ramped up its use of refinery waivers under President Donald Trump. That sparked a fierce backlash from farmers who have largely supported the president despite policies like trade tariffs that have hit the U.S. agricultural sector hard.The White House has been struggling to find a compromise between oil and agriculture, two of the bigger pieces of Trump’s political base as he looks toward possible re-election. The court decision from January found that only small oil refineries that had maintained blending exemptions continuously since 2011 were eligible to apply for extended waivers.Oil and biofuel industry estimates both say that could preclude all but three oil refineries from obtaining exemptions. The EPA is currently reviewing 23 petitions for blending waivers and most are expected to be rejected.

The DMV also continues to offer other vehicle registration-related transactions online, for example submitting a Notice of Transfer and Release of Liability.“Moving transactions out of the field office creates more capacity for processing REAL IDs, which is especially important as the federal enforcement date in October approaches. To that end, the DMV is creating and promoting more channels for transactions that can be accomplished outside a field office,” Gordon said.Interacting with DMV has been made easier with the addition of Miles, the online chatbot, and a live chat option during business hours. The DMV plans to unveil a completely redesigned website this spring that will also enhance the online customer experience.A “DMV Anytime” webpage that refers customers to online resources and vehicle registration services available through the thousands of auto clubs and other DMV business partners is another addition to a more robust online experience.
