Ratings agencies under scrutiny as penalties for mistakes mulled

first_img Ratings agencies under scrutiny as penalties for mistakes mulled Share KCS-content EUROPEAN Union (EU) finance ministers will discuss this week how they might penalise rating agencies that pass inappropriately harsh judgment on countries, a senior EU politician said yesterday.Building on remarks that he wants a new EU markets watchdog to be able to fine rating agencies, Didier Reynders, the finance minister of acting EU president Belgium, said: “It must be possible to penalise. If after some weeks or months it is possible to say it (a downgrade) was a wrong signal, what is the responsibility of the rating agency?“It is quite difficult to say that there is no responsibility if it is possible to prove it was a wrong analysis, a wrong signal.” whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comcenter_img More From Our Partners Astounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.org980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comConnecticut man dies after crashing Harley into live bearnypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comFeds seized 18 devices from Rudy Giuliani and his employees in April raidnypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.com Tuesday 28 September 2010 11:16 pm Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

French power and flair too much for Scotland in Paris

first_imgSunday Feb 6, 2011 French power and flair too much for Scotland in Paris France turned it on in Paris last night as they produced an impressive 34-21 win over Scotland in the most entertaining Six Nations game of the weekend.Both sides contributed, with Scotland, who in recent times have struggled to score tries, crossing three times themselves, through Alastair Kellock, Kelly Brown, and Sean Lamont.While the Scots put up a brave fight in the face of some dazzling French play at times, it was all about the home side as they showed that theyre over the thumping they took from Australia a few months back, and demonstrated what a classy outfit they can be.The skill level on display was highly impressive, and a good end to a Six Nations weekend that was at times error prone and lacking the decisive finishing required at the highest level. All four French tries were good, although there were a few standouts.A Maxime Medard break led to some superb interchanges that ended with Damien Traille diving over, and then a well placed, through-the-legs pass by Francois Trinh-Duc allowed Imanol Harinordoquy to streak away for a memorable try.While Scotland remained close on the scoreboard, the result was never in doubt, with France making a pretty emphatic statement at the start of the tournament.“There was a lot of rhythm and intensity. It wasn’t easy. People said there was a lot to fear from this Scotland side and they were right,” said Marc Lievremont afterwards.“I’m very happy with the performance of the backs. It was far from the perfect match but I like the solidarity shown during the game. That was pleasing.” Time: 04:21 Credit: BBCADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Stop war threats: Peace treaty with Korea now!

first_imgWomen cross the DMZ in 2015.“No first use” of nuclear weapons. It is a pledge never to attack another country with nuclear bombs or missiles, unless that country has attacked you first with such weapons.The world would be a much safer place if the U.S. and the other countries in NATO that possess nuclear weapons were to make such a pledge. But these imperialist states refuse to do so.In fact, only three of the world’s nuclear powers have pledged “no first use.” They are China, India and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.But you wouldn’t know it if all you read and heard came from the politicians and major media in the U.S. They are drumming it into the heads of the people here that north Korea — the DPRK — is a major threat to the world because it has now built half a dozen nuclear warheads.The U.S. has almost 7,000 such doomsday weapons. It has many military bases in south Korea. Several times a year it conducts huge war exercises directed against the DPRK.The last was held in August and involved 80,000 troops from the U.S. and south Korea. Other U.S. war “games” directed at north Korea have included troops from Japan — the hated colonial ruler over Korea from 1910 to 1945.Now another nuclear power has announced it is joining these U.S. war exercises: Britain. It has nuclear missile-carrying submarines that can prowl the seven seas.Sanctions are economic warAlso ratcheting up the threat of another war in Korea are economic sanctions on the DPRK that Washington has demanded from the U.N. Security Council. The sanctions are supposedly in retaliation for the DPRK’s defensive nuclear program. But in truth there is no moral or political argument to justify these sanctions.The U.S. not only possesses a vast arsenal of such weapons, but it is also the only country to have actually used them, killing hundreds of thousands of Japanese civilians at the end of World War II. Yet the U.S. and its allies have never been punished for developing such weapons.The DPRK would never have had to allocate great resources to building nuclear weapons and maintaining strong defense forces had U.S. imperialism not been trying to crush this socialist country since its founding in 1948. Yet not even a major invasion by U.S. forces in 1950, also under cover of a U.N. resolution, followed by three years of vicious war that killed 4 million people, could defeat the Korean people’s resistance.Ever since that war, the DPRK has been calling for the U.S. to join it in a peace treaty because, even 63 years after the fighting ended, the two countries are still formally in a state of war.An international group of women once again walked along the demilitarized border between north and south Korea on May 28 to dramatize their call for a peace treaty to end the Korean War.DPRK ambassador to U.N.The DPRK’s position on nuclear weapons was made very clear on Oct. 6 by DPRK Ambassador Ri Tong Il, speaking to the U.N. General Assembly:“It is the common aspiration and common desire of [humanity] to live in the world peaceful and secure, free of nuclear weapons. In building the peaceful world, disarmament, in particular nuclear disarmament, is of the greatest importance.“In this context, the DPRK fully supports the global struggle for total elimination of nuclear weapons.“As far as the nuclear disarmament is concerned, whether it is achieved or not largely depends on the political determination and political will of the big powers that possess larger stockpiles of nuclear weapons.“Over the years, the nuclear weapon states that possess larger stockpiles of nuclear weapons are accelerating qualitative improvement of nuclear weapons while doing little in quantitative reduction of nuclear weapons.“The United States, the world’s largest nuclear weapon state and the only country that used nuclear weapons, recently announced a new modernization program of all existing nuclear weapons within three decades, earmarking an astronomical figure of one trillion U.S. dollars.“Nevertheless, the United States is yet frequently talking about the so-called vision of the world free of nuclear weapons, but it is only a hypocrisy intended to deceive the world and it is none other than a screen for covering up their strategy of nuclear monopoly and world hegemony.“The continuing maneuvers of the U.S. for modernization of nuclear weapons is an act of challenge to the desire of the humanity to live in the world free of nuclear weapons, posing the greatest threat to the very survival of the mankind as well as the world peace and security.”Stop the threats and sanctions! Sign a peace treaty now!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Unsupported accusations against French TV correspondent over coverage of Palestinian teenager’s shooting

It was appointed by Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu last September.“While the Israeli government has the right to respond publicly to a media report it regards as damaging, the nature and substance of this report are questionable and give the impression of a smear operation,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire said.“As regards the substance, Charles Enderlin has always said he would be ready to testify to a commission of enquiry in conditions that guaranteed impartiality and independence. These conditions were not respected, and Enderlin was not asked to testify. Nor was he asked to provide his unused footage of the incident.“Above all, the committee’s published findings consist of just 11 pages on the ‘facts’ of the case and has another 30 pages condemning the way France 2’s report was used. We think it is absurd and unacceptable to accuse Enderlin’s report of having ‘played a major role in inciting terrorism and violence, both in the Israeli-Palestinian arena and worldwide’.”The committee claims to have based its findings on France 2’s raw video footage of the incident. Enderlin says he posted all of the footage online. Is that what the committee used? The report’s authors do not say. It claims there is no evidence to support Enderlin’s account of the incident but produces no evidence to support its own claim.The committee claims that evidence suggests that neither Muhammad al-Durrah nor his father, Jamal Al-Durrah, sustained a gunshot injury that day. In particular, it claims that no trace of blood was found the next day at the spot where they were filmed. The report, which does not name the source of this claim, also claims there was no sign of blood in the video footage.According to the committee’s findings, the broadcast footage excluded a movement of Muhammad al-Durrah’s hand and elbow that can be seen in the raw footage after Enderlin’s voice said he had been killed. The committee quotes Dr. Ricardo Nachman, deputy director of the Tel Aviv forensic centre, as saying the boy could not have moved in that way if, as France 2 claimed, he had already been hit by gunfire.The Franco-Israeli surgeon Yehuda David is quoted in the report’s appendix as saying the father’s injuries could have been sustained prior to the incident filmed by France 2’s cameraman. But David bases his claim on medical reports and did not examine Jamal Al-Durrah himself after the incident.“This report is absurd,” Enderlin said. “How can the report’s authors omit the fact that Jamal Al-Durrah was hospitalized the next day in the Jordanian capital of Amman? How can they claim that the Israel Defence Forces did not open fire?”A journalist’s friend, Guillaume Weill-Raynal, added: “No ballistic report has ever been produced to support these claims, which were already being made prior to this report.”Barak Ravid, the Israeli daily Haaretz’s diplomatic correspondent, said: “This report on the Muhammad al-Durrah case is probably one of the least convincing documents produced by the Israeli government in recent years.” “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says RSF_en last_img read more

Court also issued notice to the State Bar council.Petitioner appearing in-person submitted that in view of the subsequent developments in the matter, he is now pressing only the prayer clause (c) of his petition.In an affidavit dated October 9, the petitioner contends-“On May 22, the University of Mumbai in consonance with he UGC guidelines dated April 29, issued guidelines to promote the students of intermediate year on the basis of previous performance. Acting upon such guidelines of the University of Mumbai many colleges have published results of the intermediate year students on the basis of previous performance.I state and submit that the Bar Council of India guidelines dated May 27 and June 9 directing the colleges to conduct the examination of the students of the intermediate year within a month of re-opening of the colleges are in stark contradiction to the UGC guidelines. While the UGC guidelines grant liberty to the Universities to assess local situation and resources and then decide to either conduct intermediate year examinations or to assess such students on the basis of previous performance, the BCI guidelines mandate the Universities to conduct such examinations within a month of reopening of colleges. Since the Hon’ble Supreme Court has upheld the UGC guidelines, the above states BCI guidelines ought to be quashed.”Petitioner has cited Supreme Court’s judgment in Praneeth K & Ors Vs University Grants Commission & Ors., In the said judgment, apex court had noted-“The differentiation made by revised guidelines to hold Final year/Terminal semester examination has a rational basis and there is an intelligible differentia between the student of Final year/Terminal semester and other students. We thus reject the challenge on the ground that there is any hostile discrimination between the students of Final year/Terminal semester and other students.”The petitioner also contended that conducting online exams would not be viable for students as the number of cases of Covid-19 in the State are still on the rise.Finally, the Court noted-“Leave is granted to the Petitioner, who is appearing in person, to make Bar Council of Maharashtra & Goa as party-Respondent. Amendment to be carried out within a week. Issue notice to the newly added Respondent, returnable on 12 November 2020.”Thus, the matter will now be heard November 12, 2020.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
