whatsapp While City figures have concerns over how sufficient equivalence would be, government sources have insisted the model would be a vast improvement on existing frameworks, but one which safeguards both sides’ ability to unilaterally withdraw access.An HM Treasury spokesperson said: “Last week we held positive discussions with the European Commission on our proposal for a pragmatic new arrangement for financial services after we leave the EU.“We found common ground in recognising both the EU’s and UK’s desire to have control over their own decision making, and the need for bilateral dialogue and co-operation to reflect the deeply integrated nature of UK and EU financial markets.“More work needs to be done, and we look forward to further discussions.”The Commission did not respond to requests for a comment. Yesterday Hunt urged France and Germany to back the UK, telling the Evening Standard these member states “have to send a strong signal to the Commission that we need to negotiate a pragmatic and sensible outcome that protects jobs on both sides of the Channel because for every job lost in the UK, there will be jobs lost in Europe as well if Brexit goes wrong.”Read more: The IoD revives its Brussels branch to forge bonds ahead of Brexit Government ministers will spend much of August using one-to-one meetings with EU counterparts to press the case for a financial services deal, fearing the Commission has been deliberately misconstruing the UK’s official position.Senior figures including chancellor Philip Hammond and the new foreign secretary Jeremy Hunt have been among those clarifying the stance adopted in the Brexit white paper that was published last month. The UK side believes EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier wilfully misrepresented it following publication, City A.M. understands. Ahead of the Chequers summit ministers were encouraged to meet their counterparts throughout the summer, but were reportedly warned by Theresa May’s Europe adviser Olly Robbins that it would not be a “silver bullet”.Read more: Banks would like lower taxes to sweeten the Brexit dealHowever they upped the ante after the white paper was published. City A.M. understands that Barnier told EU ministers that the UK’s proposed model cannot be adopted, a move which Downing Street interprets as a refusal to budge from his insistence that any deal be based on an existing model. Barnier’s intransigence has led directly to the renewed push by UK ministers to appeal directly to EU ministers – over the head of the EU chief negotiator.The government had used the document to drop calls for mutual recognition of financial services regulations, seen as too challenging for negotiators. Instead it called for an “expanded equivalence” model after leaving the EU, describing it as a “reciprocal recognition of equivalence”.This was envisaged as a “new economic and regulatory arrangement based on the principle of autonomy for each party over decisions regarding access to its market”.

Dr. Anne Zink and Dr. Jay Butler also were on the panel. (Photo by Ed Schoenfeld/CoastAlaska News)Alaska has another tool in the fight against opioids.Public health officials are distributing thousands of disposal bags that chemically react to and leave no trace of the drugs.The bags are sealable pouches containing active carbon. You add drugs and water, seal and shake it, and wait for 30 seconds. The carbon neutralizes the drugs, so they have no effect. The biodegradable bags can be thrown out with the trash.Michelle Overstreet is executive director of My House, a Wasilla-based organization that helps homeless teenagers. She told those at an Alaska Municipal League meeting in Juneau that it’s important to dispose of drugs safely at any time, not just official drop-off days.“We’ve had parents coming in to get those, we’ve had grandparents coming in to get those,” she said. “People are excited about having a way to get rid of those that isn’t throwing them in the garbage or down their septic system, which then can leach into their well.”A drug-disposal pouch from a painkiller company that’s providing 25,000 such bags to Alaska. (Photo courtesy Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals)Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals, which makes opioid pain-killers, is contributing 25,000 disposal bags to the state.Alaska Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jay Butler said his agency is sending 1,000 bags to its clinics.“I recognize that some of our public health centers don’t have full-time staffing anymore. But that is one of the ways we want to get these into the communities. Or if we can provide some directly to you, we’d be happy to do that also,” he told municipal leaders at the forum.Public health official Andy Jones said distribution began a few weeks ago.They’re going to hospitals, recovery centers, homeless shelters, tribal governments and others who can get them to all parts of Alaska.“There’s a lot of communities that don’t have public health centers,” Jones said. “So we’ll also be looking at the clinics and community health aides.”“We do have a lot of itinerant nurses within public health nursing that travel go out to the communities quite often,” he said. “So they’re going to be equipped with these pouches and they can hand these out as they travel across the state.”Jones said the bags are an easy way to dispose of unused prescription painkillers, which are frequently stolen or sold to addicts.“The targeted audience may not be the individual who’s using, especially,” he said. “More or less, (it’s) the individual who’s coming into recovery.“When you go into those recovery centers or those homes, they can’t be carrying pills or prescriptions,” Jones said. “These bags give them that way to dispose of those medications in the right manner.”Gov. Bill Walker recently declared the opioid epidemic a state emergency. Other efforts include distributing 5,000 naloxone kits, which can stop opioid overdoses.Share this story:last_img read more

first_imgTheaterThere’s a Hamilton Sing-Along for Fans Who Can’t Get Enough HamiltonIt’s called Hamiltunes LA, naturallyBy Brittany Martin – August 7, 2017709ShareEmailFacebookTwitterPinterestReddItAll those hours spent singing along with the Hamilton soundtrack while idling in traffic are about to pay off. On Sunday, August 20, you can join a group of enthusiastic Hamil-fans (Fan-iltons?) gathering at a bar in Hollywood to stage a DIY sing-along of tracks from the hit musical — with the official endorsement of the show’s creators and producers.In June, Lin-Manuel Miranda and co. released The Hamilton Instrumentals, a recording created with the musicians from the original Broadway orchestra, and gave their imprimatur to any aspiring Aaron Burrs and Thomas Jeffersons to perform their own vocals along with the backing tracks. Hamiltunes LA, as the local event is known, provides the stage for those who want to share their voice — or just close their eyes and pretend they’ve scored tickets for the real deal.Held at The Three Clubs, attending Hamiltunes LA is free; if you want to belt it out you’ll need to sign up in advance via an online submission process to avoid nine back-to-back renditions of “Yorktown.” For songs with four or more parts, you can gather a group and sign up together, and we wouldn’t discourage you from rehearsing some choreography while you’re at it.RELATED: L.A.’s Hamilton Sing-Alongs Are the New Karaoke TAGSHamiltonPrevious articleThis Is the Best Avocado Dish in L.A.

first_img CMA CGM has reached an agreement to acquire South Pacific container line Sofrana Unilines.The acquisition will be concluded on behalf of the French carrier by its Australasian subsidiary, ANL, which will then merge with Sofrana to create Sofrana ANL.Chief executive of SeaIntelligence Consulting Lars Jensen said the acquisition was in line with CMA CGM’s focus on growing regional presence through snapping up niche brands.Mr Jensen added: “It also is another step in the consolidation among the smaller shortsea and feeder carriers globally that will unfold in the coming years.”While ANL already operates at ports throughout Australia, New Zealand, and Papua New Guinea, CMA CGM hopes to capitalise on Sofrana’s “in-depth knowledge” of the region to expand its reach.Active in the South Pacific for 50 years, New Zealand-based Sofrana operates 10 vessels on eight tradelanes, servicing 21 ports in Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, and the Pacific.Sofrana-ANL would conduct operations across Asia, the Indian Subcontinent, North America and the Pacific islands.CMA CGM has proved adept at handling the integration process during recent acquisitions, its latest results being the third full quarter to include figures from Singapore-based APL, showing how it could take a loss-making company and turn it into a profit generator.The carrier reported revenues of $10.1bn and operating profits of $724m, driven by an upturn of 34% in liftings and a 9% increase in revenue.Net profit reached $320m over the six months to June, versus a loss of $217m at the halfway point of 2016, with APL contributing $116m – in the first half of 2016 APL lost $127m.Industry analysts cite CMA CGM as the best-performing container line in the world, with profit margins in the region of 7.1%, 1.8% ahead of its nearest competitor.The Sofrana acquisition follows the agreement this summer between CMA CGM, reefer specialist Seatrade and independent container line Marfret to launch a joint service in the South Pacific.One of the first instances of cooperation between specialist reefer and container carriers, the 13-vessel joint service will link Australasia and French Polynesia with Europe and the US east coast.The acquisition of Sofrana Unilines is expected to be completed by the end of October. The terms were not disclosed, but Benoît Marcenac, MD of Sofrana for 15 years will remain with the company. By Alexander Whiteman 03/10/2017last_img read more

first_imgPalliative Care Boost To Support Terminally Ill Victorians VIC PremierThe Andrews Labor Government is expanding vital palliative care facilities at the Parkville Precinct.Minister for Health Martin Foley today announced 12 new palliative care beds are now fully operational at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre – taking the total number of beds at The Royal Melbourne Hospital and Peter Mac sites to 24.This ensures more people with a terminal illness can access the compassionate palliative care they need.The newly opened area will also provide a state-wide palliative care service for young people, with two rooms catering for the unique needs of young people aged 16 to 25.The rooms were co-designed by young people who have experienced cancer and feature the latest technology, more space for families to gather and kitchen areas. Specialist clinicians who work with young people are also on hand.Peter Mac is a world leading cancer research, education and treatment centre and Australia’s only public health service solely dedicated to caring for people affected by cancer. This expansion will enable more patients to achieve the best possible quality of life while living with a life-limiting or terminal illness.The Labor Government announced $3.5 million funding for palliative care beds in high demand metropolitan areas in 2019. The new beds were delivered on-time to ensure Victorians have the care they need, despite the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic.The Royal Melbourne Hospital and Peter Mac also share an integrated haematology service to care for people with blood disorders and work with the Royal Women’s Hospital to support the shared Parkville Cancer Clinical Trials Unit which enables patients to access a broad range of cancer-related clinical trials.As stated by Minister for Health Martin Foley“This expansion of palliative care services at the Parkville Precinct, including extra beds at Peter Mac, will ensure patients are cared for in the compassionate manner they deserve.” “The specialised palliative care rooms for young people play a pivotal role in making sure patients with a terminal or life-limiting illness get the support they need in a comforting environment.” As stated by Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre Chief Executive Dr Shelley Dolan“Compassionate palliative care services help relieve pain and suffering and make a real difference for our patients.” “This is about delivering on the promise of the Parkville Precinct, as a place where individual healthcare facilities are working together to deliver outstanding patient care.” /Public Release.

first_imgOregon State receives grant to spur aquaculture investment in Oregon CORVALLIS, Ore. – Oregon State University has received a nearly $700,000 grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to provide software tools for investors interested in starting aquaculture businesses in Oregon.Researchers from several Oregon State entities – including the College of Agricultural Sciences, OSU Sea Grant, the College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences, the Institute for Natural Resources, and OSU Libraries and Press – will work closely with the nonprofit Oregon Aquaculture Association on the three-year grant from NOAA’s National Sea Grant Office.“We expect the investment and educational tools we are developing will advance the rate of aquaculture investment in Oregon and along the West Coast and serve as a model for other states,” said Gil Sylvia, a marine resource economist at Oregon State and the principal investigator on the grant.Aquaculture is the fastest growing animal protein industry in the world, according to the Food and Agriculture Association of the United Nations. Global commercial fisheries production has plateaued, and aquaculture products are expected to account for more than 70% of seafood consumption by 2050.The United States suffers from a seafood trade deficit and imported aquaculture products represent a major component of the trade imbalance. As a result, the United States’ government is targeting aquaculture as a potential growth industry.In Oregon, sales from private aquaculture businesses account for less than $13 million, far less than other western states such as Washington, California and Idaho. Oregon’s aquaculture operations have traditionally focused on oysters on the coast and inland hatcheries that produce salmon and trout.“Oregon is blessed with abundant fresh and marine waters, a mild climate, inexpensive and renewable energy, university research capacity, diverse geography, a local-food ethos and existing seafood and food processing,” Sylvia said. “These attributes create the foundation and potential for an innovative and diverse aquaculture sector.”But to be successful, aquaculture investors, particularly small- to mid-sized firms, need to understand species options, production methods, land and water resources, markets, and other conditions unique to Oregon.“Aquaculture is a challenging and diverse industry, in many ways as challenging and diverse as traditional agriculture,” Sylvia said. “The software we developed helps to untangle those challenges.”Called the Oregon Aquaculture Explorer Platform, the software is a customized version of the Oregon Explorer, a natural resources digital library previously developed by OSU Libraries and Press and the Institute for Natural Resources.The Oregon Aquaculture Explorer Platform provides more than 100 layers of data, including everything from water quality to energy costs to seasonal temperature variations. Investors and other stakeholders can use the platform to produce a specific report on aquaculture potential for any particular site in the state.The research team started developing the software in 2018 after receiving a $450,000 grant from Business Oregon, a state agency that promotes investment in areas considered to have high potential for growth.The Business Oregon grant also funded the creation of investment models for three aquaculture business scenarios: tilapia in recirculating tank systems; sturgeon in recirculating tanks; and hybrid striped bass in ponds – three of the most frequently raised among more than 600 aquaculture crop options.“These are intended to help potential investors kick start their thinking on the viability of an operation in a particular location,” Sylvia said.The new funding from NOAA will allow the team to create additional investment models that include species that live in oceans or estuaries. They haven’t decided on which species to focus on, Sylvia said, but possibilities include: shellfish, such as mussels, abalone, sea urchin and scallops; seaweed, such as dulse; and other freshwater finfish, such as walleye, yellow perch and trout.The funding will also support new partnerships with state agencies and aquaculture industry associations in California and Washington; development of financial training in aquaculture classes at Oregon State; and outreach, including workshops and conferences targeting aquaculture investors. /Public Release.

first_imgShaping future of international education in Australia The Morrison Government is working with students, educators and the higher education sector to maximise the long-term benefits of international students for Australia.Minister for Education and Youth Alan Tudge today launched consultations for the Australian Strategy for International Education 2021-2030, which will set the sector on a path to long-term success and guide its recovery from COVID-19.“International students are important for Australian universities, our diplomacy, our economy and our community,” Minister Tudge said.“We want international students back in Australia as soon as the COVID-19 situation allows, but the disruption of COVID provides an opportunity to look at the sector and ensure it is working for students and for Australia in the long-term.“I want to see greater diversity in the sector, to improve the learning experience for local and international students and increase reslience to global changes in demand.“We should also better target international enrolments towards our nation’s future skills needs, to grow Australian businesses, create more local jobs and add to our economic recovery.“We will also explore opportunities to expand the reach of our international education by developing new delivery models to grow new markets around the world.“I want to hear new ideas to help set a course for both the sector’s recovery and its longer-term trajectory.”The Hon Phil Honeywood, CEO of the International Education Association of Australia and Convener of the Expert Members of the Council for International Education, said the new strategy is a chance to set out a shared vision for Australian international education.“More than three million students from around the world have studied in Australia over the past two decades, adding to the vibrancy of our communities and delivering important social, economic and diplomatic benefits to our country,” Mr Honeywood said.“I look forward to a national conversation on how we can work collectively to ensure Australian international education meets the challenges of the future.” /Public Release.
