Bank of England Super Thursday: Website struggles under pressure

first_img Show Comments ▼ Jessica Morris Bank of England Super Thursday: Website struggles under pressure Bank of England governor Mark Carney and co’s unprecedented data dump has heaped pressure onto the bank’s servers, meaning users struggled to access its website at the stroke of noon.Rather than having a fortnight to digest the various releases, central bank watchers rushed to read the interest rate decision, minutes of the interest rate meeting and new economic forecasts all in one go. “Super Thursday” ended up being surprisingly dovish, with just one monetary policy committee member Ian McCafferty breaking ranks and voting for an interest rate rise for the first time this year. Read more: Bank of England MPC votes 8-1 to hold interest rates(Source: Bank of England) Share by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeSwift VerdictChrissy Metz, 39, Shows Off Massive Weight Loss In Fierce New PhotoSwift VerdictMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity WeekPost FunKate & Meghan Are Very Different Mothers, These Photos Prove ItPost Funzenherald.comMeghan Markle Changed This Major Detail On Archies Birth Certificatezenherald.comEquity MirrorThey Drained Niagara Falls — They Weren’t Prepared For This Sickening DiscoveryEquity MirrorArticles SkillHusband Leaves Wife For Her Sister, Not Knowing She Won The Lottery Just Moments BeforeArticles SkillTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

GMP shareholders approve Stifel sale

first_imgThe firm also reported that its transition to a pure play wealth management business is advancing with the formation of a special committee of its board to acquire the 66.6% of Richardson GMP that it doesn’t already control.That committee has, in turn, hired RBC Capital Markets to prepare a formal valuation for the common shares of Richardson GMP.Approximately one third of Richardson GMP is controlled by the firm’s advisors and management, and the other third is held by Richardson Financial Group Ltd. (which is also GMP’s largest shareholder).GMP said that taking outright control of the wealth business would enable it to “prudently and aggressively” grow that business by recruiting advisors, acquiring additional wealth management businesses, developing new products and services, and investing in initiatives to “improve the service offering to investment advisors and their clients, and expand margins.”“I am encouraged by the overwhelming shareholder support our resolutions received. Shareholders have delivered a strong vote of confidence in our strategy to divest the capital markets business to Stifel Financial Corp., a world class company, and shift our focus to opportunities in wealth management,” said Don Wright, chair of GMP’s board.Any deal to take full control of Richardson GMP would only take place after the sale of the capital markets business, and would also be subject to shareholder and regulatory approvals. 10848457 - handshake by close up on a blue background 123RF Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Toronto-based GMP Capital Inc. announced on Monday that its shareholders have approved the sale of its capital markets business to U.S. firm Stifel Financial Corp., with over 98% voting in favour of resolutions to facilitate the deal.The transaction, which is expected to close in the fourth quarter, still requires regulatory approval.

It was inaugurated at Tiruvanmiyur Market jointly by Actress Gowthami, and Vardharajan, Executive Engineer, Adyar Zone GCC. RCC Diva Foundation who sponsored this installation were represented by Manisha Pramod Chordia, Sangeetha Harish Marlecha, Nisha Bisani, Vikas Jain and the Project Team. From CII-Young Indians Aditya Roongta, Immediate Past Chair, Vishal Mehta, Chair, Krishna Nathani, Co-Chair, Chennai Chapter along with few other office bearers were present at the inauguration. This touch free handwash project has been initiated by this Young and Energetic Group to fight the COVID-19 crisis. The spread of the SAR-Cov2 virus or the coronavirus happens via droplet transmission and hand touch human contact. On an average people touch their faces more than 16 times an hour. This is a major concern dealing with the fight against coronavirus. To prevent the spread through human contact one needs constantly wash their hands with soap. Soap has the capacity to kill the virus and frequent hand wash is one of effective solution to reduce the spread of the virus. This touch free handwash helps people accessing public places to use the handwash where the user doesn’t come in contact with tap or the soap dispenser yet enables them to use the handwash with help of mechanical pedal that can be operated via leg press. The project also brings awareness about the need for handwash. Regular handwash is a basic of hygiene and during these times, it’s a must to keep hands clean, hence the contactless handwash serves the purpose of hygiene and habit for all. Around 3000 people visit this market on a daily basis. Young Indians are committed to the fight against COVID-19 and are working on several relief work and innovative projects to fight the virus. last_img read more

Family Reacts to Justine Winter’s Pending Release

first_img Email Family members of a mother and her son killed in a 2009 wreck on U.S. Highway 93 said they were surprised to learn the woman responsible for the crash will be released this year.However, Amber Young also said she hopes that Justine Winter, the Evergreen woman who went to prison after being convicted on two counts of deliberate homicide, has found “meaning and purpose” in her life. On Sept. 21, the Montana Board of Pardons and Parole granted Winter, 22, parole upon completion of a pre-release program in Billings. It is likely that Winter will be free by the end of the year.“It was sooner than any of us expected,” said Young, sister and aunt to the crash’s victims, Erin Thompson, 35, and Caden Odell, 13. “But I need to do what will make my heart happy and for me that’s to wish Justine well and send her love.“I hope she has learned skills for coping and dealing with emotion and that she understands the value of life, both her own and others,” Young said.Winter was 16 years old in March 2009 when she got into a fight with her boyfriend and later that night deliberately drove her car across the centerline of U.S. Highway 93 north of Kalispell, crashing into another vehicle, driven by Thompson, who was pregnant at the time. Thompson and Odell were both killed in the crash, but Winter survived. In February 2011, Winter was found guilty of two counts of deliberate homicide. She was later given two concurrent 30-year sentences with 15 years suspended on each.During the trial, Winter never apologized for what happened. But according to Young, Winter sent a letter to the family last year and expressed remorse for the crash. Winter first applied for parole in 2014 but the board denied her request. However, it recommended her for a pre-release center.According to board executive director Timothy Allred, Winter has been in the program since December 2014. She spent the first six months as an inmate worker and is now living at a pre-release center in Billings. At the pre-release center, Winter has been able to get a job and go into the public.“(A pre-release center) helps people transition back into the community,” he said.Now that the board has approved Winter’s eventual release, she will work with a case manager to create a plan for future housing and employment. A parole officer must approve the plan before she is released. Winter is expected to move to Missoula following her release.Young said the last few years have been tough for her family but that she is hopeful that Winter will be able to do something worthwhile with her life.“Erin, Caden and the baby are forever in our hearts,” Young said. “And I hope they are in Justine’s heart too.” Stay Connected with the Daily Roundup.

News / ‘Several hundred’ boxes lost overboard in new transpacific vessel casualty

first_imgThe carrier said it was awaiting further reports on the loss of containers, and added: “We are currently assessing nearest suitable port options in Asia to berth the vessel, and will keep you informed of the port location decision and timing.”FleetMon reported yesterday there were “many containers adrift in North Pacific east of Kuril Islands”, which it understood had been lost from the Maersk Eindhoven. The 2010-built vessel is deployed on Maersk’s TP6 loop and MSC’s Pearl service from Asia to the US west coast, and is the sixth casualty report involving container losses in the transpacific in the last 80 days. More than 2,750 boxes had been spilled before this latest incident – double the yearly average. A World Shipping Council report in November said the annual average loss of containers overboard from the circa-5,000 container vessels in operation around the world was surprisingly low, at 1,382. The unprecedented run of container losses on the route began on 30 November with the ONE Apus, which lost around 1,800 boxes in heavy weather, damaging many others in the process. Most recently, on 16 January, the 13,092 teu Maersk Essen, a sister ship of the Maersk Eindhoven and deployed on the same loop, shed around 750 containers during heavy seas en route to Los Angeles. Due to the severe port congestion at Los Angeles, Maersk diverted the ship to Lazaro Cardenas, Mexico. Following a survey, the discharge of damaged containers and minor vessel repairs, the vessel is expected to sail on 20 February to an anchorage at LA, where it has an estimated berthing date of 4 March. In the aftermath of the Maersk Essen casualty, the carrier said it would be “taking any necessary steps to minimise the risk of similar incidents in the future”. Casualty marine claims consultancy WK Webster warned shippers with cargo on board the Maersk Eindhoven that after the ship arrives at the ‘port of refuge’ it would face a “prolonged operation to remove collapsed and/or damaged containers from the affected deck area”. It said it was “unclear at this stage whether the incident will give rise to General Average”. However, given that the parties concerned on the previous recent casualties have so far not declared GA, it seems unlikely. Nevertheless, highlighting the uncertainty for shippers from the apparent new strategy for carriers to avoid declaring GA, WK Webster said it continued to press the owner of the ONE Apus, and the carrier ONE, to formally confirm that GA would not be applied, “so that this issue can be finally put to rest and our clients concerns allayed”. In its most recent status report on the ONE Apus casualty, on 3 February, WK Webster said 638 containers had been discharged from the vessel, but that ONE’s plans for on carriage remained “somewhat opaque”. “Details of the status of each container still does not include details of those containers thought to be lost overboard as a result of the incident,” said the consultancy. The 13,092 teu Maersk Eindhoven (pictured) lost “several hundred containers overboard” as it suffered an engine blackout in bad weather yesterday, near Japan, en route from Xiamen, China to Los Angeles. This latest box spill in the north Pacific will add urgency to a review of lashing practices on ULCVs, and could lead to an interim restriction on the height of container stacks on the route. 2M alliance partner MSC said the preliminary advice from Maersk “suggests that several hundred containers have been lost overboard”. Maersk confirmed that the ship’s crew were all safe and that propulsion had been restored, as the FleetMon ships database recorded that the vessel had turned back at 3am local time today and was sailing at approximately 17 knots.  By Mike Wackett 18/02/2021center_img Photo 139248757 © Sheila Fitzgerald – Dreamstime.comlast_img read more
