Vermont CEOs to discuss new issues facing public companies in post-Enron world

first_imgA group of four Vermont chief executives―Ed Colodny of Fletcher Allen Healthcare, Liz Robert of Vermont Teddy Bear, Joe Boutin of Merchants Bank and John Casella of Casella Waste Systems―will participate in a panel discussion titled “How do Responsible Public Companies Handle the Issues of Enron+1?” on April 10 at Middlebury College. The town-meeting-style open event, which is the 2003 D.K. Smith Spring Forum, will take place from 4:30-6 p.m. in Room 216 of Bicentennial Hall on Bicentennial Way off College Street. Following the panel, there will be a reception in the Great Hall of Bicentennial Hall.Scott Pardee, Middlebury College Alan R. Holmes Professor of Monetary Economics, will serve as moderator. He will pose questions to the panel and then open up the question and answer session to the audience. Pardee has worked for a variety of firms and corporations, including Yamaichi International (America), where he was chairman from 1989-1995. At the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, Pardee was the senior vice president and manager for foreign operations of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) from 1962-1979. He is also a member of several corporate boards of directors and the former member of a number of corporate auditing committees.The April 10 forum will explore several issues, including the Sarbanes-Oxley Public Company Accounting Reform and Investor Protection Act of 2002, which regulates the accounting industry and requires increased business and financial disclosures. President Bush signed the act into law on July 30 in the wake of corporate accounting scandals, most notably Enron and WorldCom. According to National Real Estate Investor magazine, “CEOs of publicly traded companies are pulling their hair out these days trying to muddle through the laundry list of mandates included in the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.” The panel will also address additional topics related to corporate accountability in the areas of accounting, auditing, boards of directors, auditing committees, and other matters.Funds from the D.K. Smith Chair in Applied Economics support an annual lecture or forum. The chair was established in honor of Professor Emeritus of Economics David K. Smith, a member of the Middlebury College economics department from 1950-1988, and maintains a focus on appliedeconomics. An undergraduate economics major at Middlebury College, Smith received a master’s degree and a doctorate from Harvard prior to joining the department of economics at Middlebury, where he served as department chair for 15 years. Smith’s students established the chair in honor of his work as a teacher and mentor.The event is co-sponsored by two Middlebury College student organizations―the DigitalBridges2.0 Club and the Student Investment Committee.Both the panel discussion and the reception are free and open to the public, but reservations are required.

Syracuse defeats North Carolina in opening round of ACC tournament

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Syracuse was exhausted. It didn’t have starting center back Nyal Higgins due to red card suspension, forcing head coach Ian McIntyre to stray away from SU’s trademark 3-5-2 formation. Massimo Ferrin was in the starting lineup despite injuring his back four days prior — an injury he thought would keep him sidelined, McIntyre said. The Orange had to travel 636 miles to Chapel Hill, North Carolina after losing their chance to host an ACC tournament on Friday, too.Despite being undermanned and injured, No. 10 Syracuse (7-5-5, 2-4-2 Atlantic Coast) inched past No. 7 North Carolina (7-7-4, 3-5) on penalty kicks, after a scoreless regulation and two overtime periods in the first round of the ACC tournament. The Orange were a perfect five-for-five from the spot.“I asked the guys for a response to our last game against Boston College,” McIntyre said. “We were terrific. We were warriors out there.”Syracuse would have hosted a first round game with a win against Boston College in the final game of the regular season on Nov. 1, but “let one slip,” McIntyre said. SU was up a goal and a man at halftime but conceded twice in the final 45 minutes. Instead, they earned the No. 10 seed and a second trip of the year to Chapel Hill.On Oct. 12, Syracuse upset then-No. 18 North Carolina, 4-3. After falling behind 3-1, the Orange stormed back with three goals — two from Ryan Raposo and one from Sondre Norheim — in the final 20 minutes. The loss marked the first of a six-game winless streak to end the regular season for the Tar Heels, including five losses.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHiggins was unavailable due to suspension after receiving a red card against Boston College. The senior started at center back for the Orange in all 16 regular season games. As a result, McIntyre resorted to a back four with Dylan McDonald and Sondre Norheim at center back and John-Austin Ricks and Simon Triantafillou on the wings. A back-and-forth first half saw both sides create chances, but neither could capitalize. SU’s best chance came from the left foot of Ricks, whose strike from the top of the penalty area forced a diving save from UNC goalkeeper Alec Smir. The Orange out-shot the Tarheels 7-3 in the first half.“It wasn’t just the back four, it was the front guys who worked extremely hard, too,” McIntyre said. “They worked tirelessly to get pressure on the ball.”Karleigh Merritt-Henry | Digital Design EditorFor much of the second half, North Carolina pinned Syracuse in its own half. When SU won the ball, it constantly gave it back with errant passes and dribbles. Mauricio Pineda, Jelani Pieters and Jeremy Kelly all registered shots within a six-minute span. Four minutes later, the Orange left UNC’s Jonathan Jimenez unmarked at the back post in what surely looked to be the opening goal, but the freshman directed his header wide left.The Orange resisted the Tar Heels’ pressure and began to possess the ball in their attacking half, but SU’s most tense moments were yet to come. With five minutes remaining in regulation, Kelly nodded in a lofted cross from Pieters but he was ruled offside. Replays showed Kelly was kept onside by Sondre Norheim, but the call was not reversible. Sebastian Berhalter then rung a free kick off the crossbar with less than a minute remaining. Somehow, SU managed to extend the game to overtime, its sixth time playing more than 90 minutes this season.“In the last five minutes (of regulation), I think we rode our luck a little bit,” McIntyre said. “But I thought we got a second wind in overtime, and I thought there were going to be chances for us to find a winner.”Two 10-minute overtime periods passed with no goals. It was up to penalty kicks, which are “a lottery,” McIntyre said.Ferrin went first, stepped up and scored. UNC’s first kick taker, Santiago Herrera, couldn’t do the same. Miesch laid out to his right and deflected Herrera’s low, driven shot wide for the only miss between either side. SU’s Severin Soerlie and Matt Orr — both of whom didn’t play a minute in regulation or overtime, calmly slotted their penalties, including the winner from Orr.“Ice in the veins of our five shooters,” McIntyre said. “On the road in a difficult environment, I thought they were five excellent penalties. Didn’t give their goalie any chance.”The Orange will face No. 2 seed Virginia, who they have not played this season, in the tournament quarterfinals at 1 p.m. on Sunday.

Man City smash Watford 6-0 to win FA Cup final

first_img Source: BBC Raheem Sterling scored the first FA Cup final hat-trick since 1953 as Manchester City rounded off an outstanding season by crushing Watford at Wembley to clinch a historic domestic treble.Sterling was the star of the show as Pep Guardiola’s team became the first English men’s team to achieve the feat of winning the Premier League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup in the same season.They reaffirmed their status as this season’s dominant force as Watford were utterly outclassed.Watford’s best chance of over-turning the odds came early on when City keeper Ederson saved at the feel of Roberto Pereyra and they were furious when referee Kevin Friend waved away penalty claims after Vincent Kompany blocked Abdoulaye Doucoure’s shot.The contest was effectively over from the moment David Silva finished from close range after 26 minutes, Sterling doubling the advantage before half-time by turning in Gabriel Jesus’s goalbound shot.Watford rallied briefly after the break but were always wide open to the counter attack.They were brutally punished by an imperious City side, as substitute Kevin de Bruyne scored from Gabriel Jesus’s pass just after the hour before the Brazilian raced clear for another goal shortly afterwards.Sterling wrote his own name into the history with a treble by scoring twice in the final 10 minutes – turning in Bernardo Silva’s perfect cross before bundling in the final goal of a memorable display from Guardiola’s side.It was City’s sixth FA Cup triumph and their first under Guardiola, who has now won six trophies since taking over at Etihad Stadium in 2016.City’s win means Wolverhampton Wanderers, who finished seventh in the Premier League table, will play in the two-legged second qualifying round of the Europa League on 25 July and 1 August.last_img read more

Driver with coke and cannabis on board banned for a year

first_imgA Burnfoot man who tested positive for cocaine and cannabis at a Garda checkpoint has been banned from driving for one year.Martin Quinn, 21 from Annaslee, Burnfoot, was charged with drug driving at Shore Road, Buncrana, on Sunday, Ocotber 14, 2018, when he appeared before Buncrana District Court. Mr. Quinn contested the charge against him at the court, which was sitting at the Inishowen Gateway Hotel.Garda Thomas Duggan told the court that he was conducting a checkpoint at Shore Road, Buncrana, along with Garda Shaun McLaughlin.He said at 4.43pm he stopped a grey VW Golf being driven by Mr. Quinn.“He passed a roadside breath test but because this was a MIT [mandatory intoxication testing] checkpoint I asked him to sample for the oral fluid test,” Gda. Duggan said.“I noted that his pupils were dilated as I brought him around the back of the patrol car.”Garda Shaun McLaughlin said he made a demand of Mr. Quinn to provide a specimen of oral fluid, informing him that failure or refusal to do so was an offence.“He admitted he had cocaine last night so I cautioned him but as I went to process his sample on the machine it switched off,” explained Gda. McLaughlin.The Garda told Mr. Quinn he had to complete the testing at the Garda Station.“I explained to him he was not under arrest and he agreed to come with us. We arrived at the station within three minutes and at 5.04pm Mr. Quinn’s sample tested positive for the presence of cocaine and cannabis.”Defence solicitor Frank Dorrian argued that his client was brought to the Garda Station under threat of arrest, saying at no point was he told that he was free to leave.Gda. McLaughlin said the word ‘threat’ was very strong and at no point did Mr. Quinn ask if he was ‘free to go’.“He was either free to go or he wasn’t, but crucially he wasn’t told this,” said solicitor Dorrian.“He couldn’t make an informed decision if he wasn’t told everything. Also there is no evidence of any kind that Garda Duggan formed an opinion about my client’s driving – there is no evidence of his demeanour or a compliant about his driving – so I would submit that he was in unlawful custody.”Garda Inspector David Durkan said Mr. Quinn came to the Garda Station voluntarily and the process was carried out lawfully.Mr. Dorrian also contended that to comply with the law the test must be carried out ‘in the vicinity’ of the MIT checkpoint.“Buncrana Garda Station is not in the vicinity of the Shore Road,” said Mr. Dorrian.“The act says it must be conducted in the vicinity of the public place where the test was started – the Garda Station is also not a public place – you can’t get into the area where the test was carried out without a code.”Gda. McLaughlin the Garda Station is three minutes away from their location on the Shore Road.“The demand was made at the Shore Road and the sample was provided at the Shore Road, the testing was then carried out at the Garda Station,” he added.Insp. Durkan added that the journey is acceptable to be classed as being in the vicinity.Judge Paul Kelly said Quinn was not in custody when the swab was taken and nothing else was obtained from him at the Garda Station, other than the reading of the test.He added that Garda Duggan was not required to form an opinion under the act and found that the 21-year-old had a case to meet.Judge Kelly fined Quinn €250 for drug driving and banned him from driving for one year as it was his first offence. He postponed the driving ban until January 1, 2020.Driver with coke and cannabis on board banned for a year was last modified: July 22nd, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:BurnfootcaughtcocainecourtdrivingGardailast_img read more

Stott wins record sixth Drak Challenge

first_img24 February 2009Ant Stott scooped a record-breaking sixth victory in the Drakensberg Challenge Canoe Marathon at the end of a thrilling battle with defending champion Len Jenkins on Sunday. While Stott, a veteran of the Drak Challenge, was notching up yet another title, Michelle Eray won the women’s race on her first attempt.Stott seized a fleeting opportunity at Heaven and Hell Rapid to put space between himself and Jenkins on the full and fast-flowing Umzimkulu River to win by 40 seconds.“We worked together at the beginning, but when we got to Heaven and Hell I took a better line and managed to get ahead,” said Stott.Boat brokenThe much anticipated challenge from the chasing group of Gauteng teenager Grant van der Walt and Hank McGregor evaporated when McGregor broke his boat at Taylor’s Weir, 15 minutes from the start of the final stage, leaving Van der Walt to try and hunt down the two leaders on his own.His brave solo challenge came tantalisingly close and he was happy to settle for third place and the final spot on the podium. His younger brother Brandon van der Walt also enjoyed a flawless race, finishing seventh overall and first in the junior category.“Glenhaven was bigger than I expected!” said Stott. “Grant (van der Walt) was the man of the hour, he made up so much distance today!” he added.“Well done to Ant (Stott) for today!” said Jenkins. “We worked together most of the way and then my boat started taking on some water, and then Ant (Stott) just got ahead.”‘I had to go it alone’“I had a really good day!” said Van der Walt. “But when Hank (McGregor) broke at Taylor’s Weir I had to just go at it alone. I tried to gain on them, but didn’t manage to get close enough. But overall the water was great. I had no damage to by boat and no swims!”The women’s race was laced with drama as the trio of Robyn Kime, Carol Joyce and Michele Eray provided a riveting spectacle over the 38-kilometre final stage, which was raced on a full river after heavy overnight thunderstorms, in sharp contrast to the low water levels of the first stage.Joyce fell off the front bunch after a swim at Taylor’s Weir shortly after the start, followed by another silly swim on the outskirts of Underberg.Kime’s challenge for the title was undermined when she capsized at the Underberg Weir; her chances of recovering well enough to contest the title then ended with a horrific swim down the wild Glenhaven Rapid.Strongest women’s fieldThe win for the ecstatic Eray capped a highly competitive race featuring the strongest women’s field assembled for many years. Eray, the reigning Dubai Shamaal champion and one of the stars of the South African sprint team at the Beijing Olympics, came into the race under-prepared, recovering from tendon surgery to her forearm.“I had a jol, hey!” she said. “I had plans to sit behind Carol and get her to show me the river, but she swam at Underberg so I went into the gorge lonesome ownsome!” laughed Eray.“It’s great here and I’m surprised I’ve never been here before! I’ll definitely be back next year!” she smiled.“I had two swims today, one at Glenhaven and then again at Underberg Weir,” said Kime. “Carol (Joyce) caught me at Glenhaven and then we worked together the rest of the way until I broke away a bit at the end. I’d love to come up here every weekend!” she added.‘Two silly swims’“Unfortunately it wasn’t a good day for me!” said Joyce. “I would have preferred to have done two stages of day one. I had two silly swims twenty minutes in to the race at Taylor’s Weir and some place nearby. But it was not a bad result overall.”The big field of 808 paddlers enjoyed two days of clear hot Southern Drakensberg weather and an Umzimkulu River that varied from frustratingly low on the first stage to wild waves and holes on the final stage of the race.RESULTSMen Ant Stott 03:50:19 Len Jenkins 03:51:00 Grant van der Walt 03:51:10 Greg Louw 03:59:11 Jacques Theron 03:59:16 Piers Cruickshanks 04:02:22 Brandon van der Walt 04:02:32 Ryan Louw 04:04:18 Michael Arthur 04:06:43 Murray Burgess 04:06:47 Women Michele Eray 04:20:57 Robyn Kime 04:23:54 Carol Joyce 04:24:31 Hilary Pitchford 04:33:50 Danica Vorster 04:35:29 Jen Hodson 04:36:47 Abie Adie 04:37:06 Michelle Eder 04:40:22 Tamika Haw 04:44:05 Tiffany Kruger 04:46:20 Source: Canoeing South Africalast_img read more

Joburg: Africa’s second most visited city

first_img12 June 2012 Johannesburg will be Africa’s second most visited city this year with an expected 2.5-million international visitors, according to the latest Mastercard Global Destination Cities Index released on Monday. Thirteen African cities were ranked, including Casablanca, Accra, Nairobi, Beira, Cape Town, Dakar, Durban, Kampala, Lagos, Maputo, and Tunis.Visitor demographics The highest number of visitors to Johannesburg are from London, Frankfurt and Dubai. London tourists are projected to account for 328 000 of the total number of visitors, while Frankfurt will account for 196 000 and Dubai for 166 500. Combined, these visitors are expected to inject $975-million into the city’s economy in cross-border spending during 2012. Paris will also account for a large number of visitors, with an estimated 143 000 expected to touch down in Joburg. “They will spend an anticipated $332-million in the city during 2012, a substantial amount compared to visitor numbers and an average of $2 320 per person – the highest average spend per person of all visitors,” Mastercard said in a statement. “The index also reveals the destination cities where those from Johannesburg are travelling to, and it was found that in most cases they are opting for African destinations before they travel overseas,” Zietsman said. “Four of the top five outbound destinations for Johannesburg travellers are within Africa. Windhoek and Nairobi are the top two outbound travel destinations; London comes in third, followed by Harare and Luanda.” Durban and Cape Town Durban and Cape Town were also ranked in the index, and fared well. Durban will be the fastest growing city in Africa for both visitor numbers and expenditure, with a projected 33.3% growth in the number of international visitors and 41.3% growth in visitor expenditure in 2012. “Additionally, the Durban International Convention Centre provides the largest flat floor, column-free exhibition and conferencing space in Africa, attracting many international exhibitors to the city while playing host to some of the largest and most complex conferences and business events in the world over the past fifteen years,” Zietsman said. Cape Town also has a range of attractions to offer visitors and was named the world’s top holiday destination by online travel website Tripadvisor in 2011. “Cape Town is popular with many travellers because of the wide range of experiences it offers visitors, from surfing and sailing, mountain climbing and beaches, to its wine farms and world-renowned fine-dining establishments,” said Zietsman. “Its World Heritage Sites, magnificent natural surrounds and superior shopping opportunities add to its irresistible appeal.” Global economic adviser for Mastercard Worldwide Yuwa Hedrick-Wong said African cities were showing strong levels of growth. “This kind of growth pattern strongly suggests that destination cities in emerging markets in Africa will also continue to grow in importance in the global economy,” he said. “In spite of the ups and downs of the business cycle, the overall pattern is clear: cross-border travel by air is a resilient trend that is embraced by a growing number of people across Africa, underpinned by visitors’ robust willingness and capacity to spend.” SAinfo reporter Coming second only to Cairo – which will host about 3.3-million visitors in 2012 – Joburg is also rated as the African city that tourists will spend the most money in. An estimated US$3.3-billion will be injected into the city’s economy, marking an increase of 8.1% on the 2011 figures. The index ranks 132 global cities by total international visitor arrivals and cross- border spending; it also forecasts visitor and passenger growth for the year ahead, and examines where visitors originate from. “This is the second installment of this MasterCard Index, which is used as a barometer for understanding the global economy and the dynamic flow of commerce across the world,” said country manager of Mastercard Worldwide in South Africa Dries Zietsman.last_img read more

What Microsoft Did And Didn’t Buy With Its Nokia Acquisition

first_imgIn one fell swoop today, Microsoft is becoming an extremely different type of company. Microsoft is pushing hard to recreate itself as a “devices and services” company and today it took a very big step in that direction by buying, you guessed it, Nokia’s mobile devices and services division. Microsoft is paying $7.17 billion to bring Nokia into the fold, including the design, manufacturing and distribution of both smart and feature phones and the right to license many of Nokia’s patents, as well as the Nokia name and a host of mobile services. See also Microsoft Does Inevitable, Buys Nokia Smartphone Unit, Patents for $7.2 BillionWhat didn’t Microsoft buy with its $7 billion in cash? Nokia itself, including most of Nokia’s non-smartphone related property (cellular infrastructure and HERE Maps, for example). Many people will say, “Microsoft bought Nokia.” This is true because Microsoft did buy a good portion of the Finland manufacturing company, but Nokia itself will still exist independent of Microsoft.So, what exactly is Microsoft getting? Let’s break it down.What Microsoft Actually BoughtOfficially, Microsoft is buying Nokia’s “Devices and Services” business unit. That simple designation is the whole hog: everything from manufacturing and distribution, design, operations, sales and marketing teams and related support. That business unit comprises of approximately 32,000 people that will become Microsoft employees when the deal officially closes. Tags:#Microsoft#Nokia#smartphone#Windows Phone Nokia will continue to be a company outside of Microsoft and will retain rights to its brand and management thereof. If Microsoft were to buy all of Nokia, the acquisition cost would have been more than double what Microsoft paid for the devices side of the business and included many aspects of which Microsoft would wants no part. Eventually, Microsoft would eventually have to sell off those unwanted Nokia parts piecemeal. In this—better—arrangement, Microsoft will be able to license the Nokia brand for existing devices.The HERE Maps team will stay with Nokia. HERE Maps is a subsidiary of Nokia that employs about 6,000 people. Nokia will make HERE Maps available to Windows Phones and feature phones as part of a four-year license that Microsoft will pay for separately. This preserves a revenue stream for Nokia and also allows Nokia to sell HERE Maps and services to other companies.Microsoft didn’t acquire Nokia’s entire patent portfolio, either. It bought the design patents outright but will license Nokia’s 30,000 utility patents patents for 10 years.By not acquiring the entirety of Nokia’s patents, Microsoft was able to keep the acquisition cost of the Devices and Services down while preserving future assets for Nokia.  More specifically, Microsoft is buying Nokia’s Smart Devices unit. This includes the Lumia brand of smartphones running the Windows Phone operating system. Nokia shipped 7.4 million Lumia smartphones in the second quarter of 2013. The Smart Devices unit includes the manufacturing and design of the Lumia line along with the distribution, sales and marketing teams.Microsoft didn’t just buy the Lumia brand, it bought the people that actually put it together. This is extremely important for Microsoft because it could not possibly think to create its own manufacturing processes and supply chain on its own and hope to make a significant dent as a “devices” company any time soon. In this case, the processes that Microsoft is getting from Nokia are as important as the resources (the sales and revenue of Nokia phones). Nokia’s Mobile Phones business unit is also part of the deal. This is Nokia’s still robust (but shrinking) feature phone business and includes Nokia’s Asha line of cellphones. Nokia’s feature phone business sold 53.7 million units in the second quarter, second to Samsung worldwide. Nokia Lumia 920Microsoft could have done without the feature phones business unit of Nokia. Yet, to buy the manufacturing processes of Nokia, it had to take the feature phone and Asha units along with the smart devices unit. Microsoft sees the feature phone unit as a way to expand Microsoft services to millions of Nokia users worldwide as a way to “on-ramp” users to Windows Phones. Microsoft will be able to use Nokia’s brand on feature phones for 10 years.The acquisition is also a bit of a talent acquisition for Microsoft, as it is bringing in most of Nokia’s executive leadership team, including Nokia CEO Stephen Elop who will transfer to being Microsoft’s head of its Devices unit. Elop is still considered a candidate for the CEO role of Microsoft. In addition to Elop, Microsoft is will bring in Jo Harlow to continue leading Nokia’s Smart Devices team, Juha Putkiranta to lead the Nokia integration into Microsoft, Timo Toikkanenen to lead the feature phone Mobile Phone division and Stefan Pannebecker to lead the device Design team. Chris Weber, Nokia’s marketing head and former head of all of Nokia’s U.S. sales, will come to Microsoft and continue his role as Nokia sales chief.Microsoft also bought the rights to license Nokia’s robust patent portfolio for 10 years. Microsoft is specifically buying 8,500 of Nokia’s design patents, and will also make its patents available to Nokia for its HERE Maps unit. Nokia will also transfer its patent licensing agreements, including its big one with chipmaker Qualcomm, to Microsoft. Other patent agreements transferred to Microsoft includes those with IBM, Motorola Mobility (owned by Google), Motorola Solutions. Nokia also passes on patent agreements with Apple, LG, Nortel and Kodak to Microsoft.What Microsoft Didn’t Buy Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technologycenter_img Related Posts dan rowinski Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech …last_img read more
