The survey results were released by financial information services firm Markit yesterday.The manufacturing PMI for Novem­ber scored 53.5 which – being above 50 – signifies expansion and marks a four-month high.Output, new orders and employment all saw increases in November. Manufacturing PMIs for the Euro­zone were also released by Markit yesterday. The Eurozone PMI fell to 50.1 implying the manufacturing sector is stagnating as it was close to 50. The figure is a drop from Octo­ber’s 50.6. Worrying signals appeared in the country breakdown. Germany, Italy and France – the three largest Euro­zone members – all registered a PMI consistent with a contraction in the manufacturing sector. The news adds further pessimism to the economic growth prospects of the currency union. Especially troublesome was Germany’s PMI, which edged down to a 17-month low of 49.5.Robust domestic sales outweighed the Eurozone export drag.“The news on the domestic front was especially positive, with solid new order inflows from the UK market the main pillar supporting the expansion. However, manufacturers reported subdued growth in export orders,” said economist Rob Dobson from Markit.The figures come after survey results published yesterday by consultants BDO and manufacturing ind­ustry body EEF told the same story of a buoyant domestic econ­omy more than offsetting a weak export market. “Despite more disappointing re­sults in key markets such as the Eurozone, this year should be the strongest year for industry since 2010,” said Lee Hopley, chief economist at EEF.

SEC bars Toronto man from associating with investment advisors

by admin
Retail trading surge on regulators’ radar, Vingoe says The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has issued an order banning Toronto-based money manager, Weizhen Tang, from associating with any investment advisor. According to the order, Tang has failed to respond to an order instituting proceedings against him, which was served on October 22, and so is deemed to be in default. As a result, Tang is permanently enjoined from violating the antifraud and registration provisions of the U.S. federal securities laws.

This sanction will serve the public interest and the protection of investors,” the order says, adding, “Tang’s unlawful conduct was egregious, over a period of more than one year. There are no mitigating circumstances.” The order indicates that the wrongdoing that underlies the injunction occurred from at least November 2007 until April 2009, “when Tang participated in a Ponzi scheme and other fraudulent schemes.” Additonally, it notes that Tang, jointly and severally with others, was also ordered to disgorge $9,126,448 and prejudgment interest of $2,667,119 and to pay a $9,126,448 civil penalty. Last month, Tang was convicted of fraud in a Toronto court. He is currently awaiting sentencing. Imposters among us, CSA warns Facebook LinkedIn Twitter

PORTIA SIMPSON MILLER ADDRESS BY GOVERNOR-GENERAL HIS EXCELLENCY THE MOST HON. PROFESSOR KENNETH O. HALL TO THE SWEARING-IN CEREMONY OF THE HON. PORTIA SIMPSON MILLER UncategorizedMarch 30, 2006center_img FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Periodically, there are singular moments and occurrences that are defining in their scope and character. These extraordinary moments are not always identified and recognised at their point of occurrence, but must be followed to their destinations if their significance is to be understood.The swearing in of Member of Parliament, the Most Honourable Portia Simpson-Miller, as the seventh Prime Minister of Jamaica must certainly rank among the defining moments in the history of this country.This momentous event is located in the present but its genesis is traced to the history of our people in the New World.Women were courageous enough to build and maintain their families and yet audacious enough to challenge and accelerate the conquest of slavery and colonialism. They were some of the most potent voices in the quest for the independence of our nation. They comprise the backbone of our political and social organisations and they continue to demonstrate an enviable capacity to master any and all professions.SIGNIFICANCE OF THIS DAY IN OUR HISTORYToday, Jamaicans of all walks of life; the peoples of neighbouring countries of the Caribbean Community and beyond; every aspirant for high office will, on this occasion, recognise that the fundamental principle of human equality has been established and permeates our society.Human equality and by extension gender equity; equality of opportunity and equality of responsibility must not be merely enshrined in our Constitution and embedded in our consciousness, it must reveal itself in national policies and manifest itself within our institutions.The fight for human equality was not undertaken and won at the plantation and global levels to be stifled at the national level; denied at the organisational level; or diluted at the political level. Consequently, I believe that all Jamaicans have speculated that it was only a matter of time – now less than five decades after national independence – before a woman Prime Minister would emerge from the ranks of our political organisations.Jamaicans at home and in the Diaspora heard the shouts of jubilation that erupted from men and women at Old Hope Road when Prime Minister the Most Honourable P. J. Patterson, in his capacity as President of the People’s National Party announced that delegates to a special conference had chosen the Honourable Portia Simpson-Miller as his replacement. It was a momentous disclosure that signaled her eventual elevation to the esteemed office of Prime Minister of Jamaica.But it is not only in Jamaica and in CARICOM Member States that people have been rejoicing at this event. From the international community, there has been an outpouring of goodwill at the fact that Jamaica’s first female Prime Minister has joined the band of her illustrious predecessors and those currently holding this high office.TRIBUTE TO THE MOST HON. P. J. PATTERSONRetiring Prime Minister, the Most Honourable P. J. Patterson, I know that Jamaicans would never forgive me if I were not to express our grateful acknowledgement for your remarkable and enduring contributions to this nation and to the Caribbean Community.There is a debt that we all owe you, a distinguished son-of-the-soil, that is today being paid in part in the unreserved admiration we feel for you. And I know that in Kingston, as in the distant parishes of this country, my remarks will be greeted by vigorous, vociferous and profound approval.Your extraordinary continuous and uninterrupted service at the helm of this country for the past fourteen years must be admired, and lauded. With the dignity and dedication befitting a patriot, you have devoted your most energetic years and the major part of your life to serving Jamaica. Prior to that you have held various portfolios and discharged many functions in the interest of this land. I am sure that in the process, you have known dark nights and awaited dawn, always looking for the star of hope. You are not known for being dispassionate when Jamaica’s welfare is at stake and when her future appears threatened.Unknown to most, you have given yourself quietly to and for Jamaica. Whether at the Commonwealth, the ACP, the United Nations, in bilateral negotiations, or in the halls of the international financial institutions, you have admirably and convincingly advanced the cause of our people, the interests of our Region and of developing countries as a whole.You stand as an embodiment of selfless service, reminding us all that the joys of personal sacrifice exceed the pleasures of selfish gratifications and ambitions; persuading us that the comparatively meager financial rewards for public service are always compensated for by the satisfaction of playing one’s part well on the stage of life; and challenging all Jamaicans to politics of elevation, to a search for accommodation, in short, towards the emergence of a new political order.At the close of your watch, you are leaving your successor an economy that is adapting and transforming itself in order to minimize the dislocations that globalisation distributes without discrimination, while at the same time seeking to maximize the opportunities that might present themselves.As you today reflect with satisfaction at the distance we have traveled during the years that you were at the helm of this country, there must be a sense of satisfaction and pride that you have played your part effectively and well. And yet, if I hear the silent beating in your breast, it must be the regret that all your desires and noble intentions have not been all realized. I exhort you to take courage at the fact that the mantle is passing to none more deserving than your successor.Retiring Prime Minister, I am privileged to know the great esteem in which you are held by your colleagues in the Caribbean Community. That you are the doyen of CARICOM leaders is undeniable; that you exerted the wisdom that emerges from a long and fruitful service to the Region is evident. The Heads of Government of the Caribbean Community have publicly lauded your contributions to the Caribbean integration movement.It must be remembered that you were there at the birth of the Caribbean Community and quite fittingly, and as just recompense for your yeoman service to our Region, you are leaving at the juncture when the greatest progress towards regional integration has been consummated in the establishment of the Caribbean Single Market and the work in progress towards achievement of the CARICOM Single Economy. As a committed integrationist, this must fill you with great satisfaction.If service to people is the highest attainable good, then service to one’s nation yields the highest satisfaction. On behalf of all Jamaicans, I thank you for the many years of meritorious service rendered to this nation.I am sure that you could have sought and would have had exceptional success in any field of endeavour, but, you elected to devote a lifetime of service to the Jamaican people. You are deserving of the respect and admiration of this nation and it must neither be delayed nor denied. May God be pleased to grant you e deserved blessings.TRANSITION OF LEADERSHIPThe orderly transfer of the mantle of leadership is a hallmark of an organisation that is durable and dynamic: The peaceful transfer of power, witnessed here today, identifies Jamaica as a nation that has matured both politically and constitutionally.Let me observe that in the community of nations there are many moribund and shipwrecked situations. Madam Prime Minister,yours will most certainly be a course that preserves the gains of the past and expands these gains so that the poor and dispossessed among us may be brought into the ambit of economic prosperity.THE CHALLENGESMadam Prime Minister, our society is beset by various challenges and new and incipient negative developments threaten its fabric. In the interest of our stability and progress, and in order to ensure that Jamaica remains a vibrant member of the international community in this age of globalisation, we must urgently find solutions for these challenges.The hopeful and the hopeless turn eyes of expectancy towards you, waiting to be infused with new hope and energy and to be provided with the necessities to transform their situation. The task may be formidable but the mission is not hopeless and impossible. Our people are resourceful. They must not want, and do not expect, governments to undertake what are rightly their responsibilities. Instead, they need their governments to create the environment in which they can display their inherent creativity, and carve their own futures.This is not a fanciful view or untested assumption. Unobserved, manifold life-challenges are valiantly overcome daily in towns and hamlets across this country; unseen and unreported, neighbourly love flourishes and blossoms; and the safety cordons of care formed in neighbourhoods function to increase the life-chances of children and young people. These dynamic and hopeful occurrences have never been quenched by growing selfishness and will never be extinguished in our land.We must affirm in speech and confirm in practice that disagreements need not breed conflict and enmity; that being victor does not require victims; that the collective good may be placed above partisan concerns; that compromise and consideration are indeed virtues that characterize civilised behaviour of men and women and are not symbols of weakness. The contention of ideas in the market place of public opinion must result in the enlargement of options and alternatives and the stimulation of reasoning and change. When such occur, we as a nation are on the way towards acquiring the mental and attitudinal skills that are vital to success in global economic transitions.THE HONOUR AND THE BURDENMadam Prime Minister, the political constituencies of your Party have expressed their choice in you. But today, the oath of office obligates you to all of Jamaica. You have this morning left the confines of your political party and assumed the leadership of the entire nation. Standing in the place of leadership, the nation will look to you for the compassion that lends a hand to those impoverished and vanquished by unkind circumstances; and consideration for those awaiting the tide of prosperity.As you well know, the honour and privilege to serve your country in this high office is accompanied by the burdens of leadership. It is my hope that the goodwill expressed by all Jamaicans will attend you in periods of difficulties that you are sure to meet.CONCLUSIONI now join with Jamaicans at home and in the diaspora and indeed, with my brothers and sisters in the Commonwealth Caribbean, in expressing heartfelt congratulations to you on your elevation to this high office. You are now the symbol of hope for the many with noble expectations. To those awaiting development and change in their conditions, you are the personification of their aspirations.May your personal confidence in God sustain you always. May you govern wisely and in the interest of all. Advertisementslast_img

The Panama Canal Authority is now far advanced in building a third lane of locks that will accommodate larger ships called New Panamax.The new gateway would encourage larger ships to trade with Jamaica. The Maritime Authority of Jamaica is prepared to receive larger vessels (New Panamax) that are likely to call at Jamaica’s ports following the expansion of the Panama Canal in 2015.This was disclosed by Director General of the Maritime Authority, Rear Admiral Peter Brady at a JIS Think Tank on March 26.He explained the implications of larger vessels coming to Jamaica. “Panamax are mid-sized cargo ships that are capable of passing through the existing lock system of the Panama Canal. The Panama Canal Authority is now far advanced in building a third lane of locks that will accommodate larger ships called New Panamax,” he said.He added that the new gateway would encourage larger ships to trade with Jamaica, but pointed out that shipping lines are most likely to enter into trade relationships with Jamaica if they are certain about the clearance, safety, pollution prevention, and inspection procedures.“We need vessels to come here uninterrupted in a predictable regulatory environment that’s globally recognised so the MAJ, through the Shipping Act provides for that. When the ships are in transit, in Jamaican waters and even while in port, through the provisions of the Port Authority Act, we must ensure that they are operating in a harmonised system with the rest of the world,” he said.He pointed out that ships are the major carrier of supplies that come to Jamaica. “Ninety-three per cent of Jamaica’s trade takes place by sea and that fits into the global picture whereby 90 per cent of global trade takes place by sea so you can see maritime trade drives the world’s economy,” he said.Rear Admiral Brady added that the Authority also has the necessary personnel to carry out mandatory inspections.This he said is done by Port State Control Inspectors, whose targets are set under the Caribbean Memorandum of Understanding on Port State Control to which Jamaica is a signatory.Jamaica’s inspection target is 15 per cent. This means that inspection must be carried out on a minimum of 15 per cent of the ships that call on Jamaica’s ports. He explained that the target is usually exceeded because Jamaica’s own national standards are very high.The Maritime Authority of Jamaica regulates maritime transportation and associated activities in Jamaica. Its mandate is to, pursue the development of shipping in Jamaica and regulate the matters relating to merchant shipping and seafarers. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail last_img

Canada’s Bell agrees $3.1B deal for rival Manitoba Telecom Services

first_img Kavit joined Mobile World Live in May 2015 as Content Editor. He started his journalism career at the Press Association before joining Euromoney’s graduate scheme in April 2010. Read More >> Read more Canada’s number two operator BCE (Bell) announced a deal to acquire Manitoba Telecom Services (MTS) for C$3.9 billion ($3.1 billion), with a pledge to expand LTE in the province.The proposed deal, subject to regulatory approval, will see Bell significantly beef up its operations across western Canada, with the company committing to a $1 billion investment over five years to “expand broadband networks and services throughout Manitoba”.As part of the planned investment, Bell said it will accelerate expansion of MTS’ LTE network, “with average data speeds twice as fast as those now available”, as well as a focus on internet, TV and media services.In an apparent bid to curb regulatory concerns over the all-Canadian tie-up, and help fund the deal, Bell also said in a separate statement it will sell one third of MTS’ postpaid wireless subscribers and retail locations to rival (and number three player) Telus once the deal completes.Bell has just under 10 million connections according to GSMA Intelligence, while MTS’ wireless unit had 515,744 at the end of Q1 2016.“Welcoming MTS to the Bell group of companies opens new opportunities for unprecedented broadband communications investment, innovation and growth for urban and rural Manitoba locations alike,” said George Cope, president and CEO of BCE and Bell Canada.The purchase price for MTS will be approximately C$3.1 billion, and C$0.8 million in debt.The combined company will be known as Bell MTS, with Winnipeg set to become Bell’s headquarters for Western Canada.Bell said it expects to close the transaction at the end of 2016 or early 2017.

Niemann (68) leads Greenbrier by two shots

by admin
first_imgWHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. — Joaquin Niemann was an 18-year-old amateur when he arrived in West Virginia two years ago and tied for 29th in the only PGA Tour event he played outside of the U.S. Open. In 2018, he improved to a tie for fifth at the tournament. Now he has a chance to become the first player from Chile to win on tour. Niemann shot a 2-under 68 on Saturday to take a two-stroke lead in A Military Tribute at the Greenbrier. The 20-year-old Niemann was 15 under with a round left in the season-opening event at the Old White TPC. ''I just feel like I'm almost a member here,'' Niemann said. ''I just like being out here. Always when you play on a course that you know already it helps a lot. I think this is the course I have played more on tour.'' Niemann had a bogey and three birdies, including a 4-foot putt on the par-5 17th. ''I'm just really happy the way I've been playing,'' Niemann said. ''This course is really good for me.'' No third-round leader has gone on to win the tournament. Nate Lashley, Richy Werenski and Robby Shelton were tied for second at 13 under. Lashley and Werenski shot 65, and Shelton had a 70. Adam Long and Scotty Scheffler were 12 under. Long shot 70, and Scheffler had a 71. A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier: Full-field scores | Full coverage Lashley's story is well known by now. In 2004 his parents and girlfriend were killed in a plane crash in Wyoming. After resuming his career in the PGA Tour's minor leagues, he won his first tour title at the inaugural Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit in June after slipping into the field as an alternate. ''My mentality is I'm definitely a lot more relaxed,'' Lashley said. ''I'm just playing, just trying to take that as experience, the way I played in Detroit. You know, I really just kind of kept to myself that week and really just focused and tried to block everything else out. I feel like I've done a good job of that so far.'' Lashley made bogeys after finding the rough on the par-4 11th and the greenside bunker on the par-3 15th. He chipped in for eagle from 36 feet at No. 17. His tee shot on the 179-yard 18th came as thunderstorms arrived in the area and play was suspended for about 50 minutes. Upon returning, Lashley three-putted from 70 feet. Werensky finished No. 126 in the FedEx Cup standings last season, one spot from qualifying for the playoffs. He got his PGA Tour card back for this season in the Korn Ferry Tour Finals. Werensky said that he didn't get discouraged after missing the playoffs. Heading into the Korn Ferry Finals, ''I had like a, I don't want to say an epiphany, but just like, 'Hey, man just chill out. Relax. I know I'm good enough.'' Shelton was tied for the lead with Niemann and Scheffler after the second round. Shelton was 2 over for the day until making birdies at the par-5 12th and par-4 14th. He hopes to use his two wins on the Korn Ferry Tour last season to help stay calm Sunday. ''You got to be super patient,'' he said.
