Lederman begins LSE action

first_img KCS-content A FORMER executive’s industrial relations case against the London Stock Exchange (LSE) got off to a fiery start yesterday as hundreds of documents came to light just hours before the beginning of the Tribunal hearing.The former head of Turquoise Eli Lederman is suing the LSE under laws that protect employers when one business is sold to another. The LSE has already conceded that Lederman was unfairly dismissed but it is contesting the rest of the claims in the case that started yesterday at Kingsway, near Holborn. Unfair dismissal carries with it a maximum payout of £80,000.Lederman says his solicitors have been seeking documents and emails relevant to the case for weeks and it was only eight hours before the case began that hundreds of fresh papers were handed over.The hearing was adjourned yesterday mid-morning so that Lederman and his legal team could read through the documents.“It seems that senior LSE executives have as much difficulty discovering important documents from their email systems as their clients have recently had obtaining prices reliably from LSE trading systems,” Lederman said yesterday, referring to the LSE’s recent trading system glitches.LSE in February last year replaced Lederman with David Lester, the director of information services at the exchange.Turquoise was set up by LSE’s biggest customers including Morgan Stanley, Credit Suisse Group, Bank of America, Deutsche Bank and Goldman Sachs, and had taken market share from LSE and other traditional exchanges.The LSE declined to comment last night. The case continues.

From this ECUSA member’s perspective, the message the Archbishop of Canterbury seems to convey is that the Southern Cone’s actions are “bad,” but Uganda’s identical actions are fine. Really? Why are some treated differently? Is this a “hands off Africa” policy? When standards are unevenly applied, it appears as if there are no standards. Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Press Release Service [Episcopal News Service] The Rev. Katherine Grieb of the U.S.-based Episcopal Church and Archbishop Tito Zavala of the Anglican Province of the Southern Cone have been reinstated as full members on the Anglican Communion’s chief ecumenical and doctrinal commission.The two members have served for the past two years as consultants to the Inter-Anglican Standing Commission on Unity, Faith and Order (IASCUFO) after their full membership on that body was rescinded at the request of Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams.Williams’ request concerning Grieb came in May 2010 following the consecration of Los Angeles Bishop Suffragan Mary Douglas Glasspool, who is openly gay, and his decision about Zavala was made in October 2010 because the Southern Cone had failed to clarify whether it was still involved in cross-border incursions into other provinces.Grieb is an Episcopal priest and professor of New Testament at Virginia Theological Seminary. Zavala was bishop of Chile at the time but has since been elected as archbishop of the Southern Cone province.The request to reinstate the members fully was made by IASCUFO chairman Archbishop Bernard Ntahoturi of the Anglican Church of Burundi.Williams, according to an article from the Anglican Communion News Service, has asked the secretary general of the Anglican Communion to reinstate Grieb and Zavala “acknowledging that members of IASCUFO are present in virtue of skills relevant to the work of the commission and are not present as representatives of their provinces.” Yet when the sanctions were imposed, Williams cited developments and actions taken by the individuals’ provinces.The May 2010 sanctions impacted other Episcopalians serving on ecumenical bodies. Two were asked to leave the Anglican-Orthodox Theological Dialogue and one member each stepped down from the Anglican-Methodist International Commission for Unity in Mission and the Anglican-Lutheran International Commission.One Episcopal Church member serving on the Anglican-Old Catholic International Coordinating Council was initially removed but later reinstated as a consultant after it was agreed that that body is not an ecumenical dialogue but the coordination of work by full communion partners.At the time, no mention was made about ecumenical commission members from other provinces — such as Nigeria, Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda – that had been involved in cross-border interventions in the United States.

The design of The Concrete Box house was begun with three fairly simple concepts as goals: a carefully choreographed entry sequence, material clarity, and a sculptural presence.  The building is composed of three elements- a concrete box, a wooden box, and the low concrete wall that encloses the entry courtyard.  Fenestration on the front is limited, which adds to the sculptural nature of the building.  To enter the building one slips between the two overlapping concrete walls in the front and then passes through the sanctuary-like entry courtyard before arriving at the front door.  Save this picture!© Jack ThompsenSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Jack ThompsenThe door opens into an entry hall that has a low ceiling and is a touch dark.  From here one passes through an opening in the concrete box to enter the brightly lit, tall volume of the main space.  While passing through the opening, one experiences the thickness and solidity of the concrete walls.  The abundant natural light and expansive views into the front courtyard and rear garden surprise as they are initially difficult to reconcile with the blank façade.  The first floor is basically a single space where slight level changes delineate function between dining, kitchen, and living.  Save this picture!© Jack ThompsenSave this picture!© Jack ThompsenThere is an office hidden behind sliding walls that allow the owners to work in this space during the day and then literally close the office at times when work is to be forgotten.  The simple and bright white rooms of the second floor stand in marked contrast to the downstairs with its wood and concrete walls.  Save this picture!© Jack ThompsenProject gallerySee allShow less”False Binaries”: Why the Battle Between Art and Business in Architecture Education …Articles10 Essential Freehand Drawing Exercises for ArchitectsArticles Sharelast_img read more

Cuban authorities urged to explain detained blogger’s disappearance

His present whereabouts are unknown.After reporting his disappearance from the prison where he had been held since April 2013, his family is now worried that the authorities will charge him with escaping. As they do not known his version of events, they fear that a trumped-up escape charge will be used to give him an additional jail sentence.His daughter is the only relative who has seen him since his disappearance. As a police officer accompanied her during their ten-minute meeting, Ángel Santiesteban-Prats was unable to talk freely. Since then, no information about his situation has been provided while rumours continue to circulate.“We urge the authorities to provide a clear explanation of Santiesteban-Prats’ current situation,” said Camille Soulier, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Americas desk.“Each day without news increases the risks for this blogger. We demand his immediate release and the withdrawal of all charges against him. The repressive methods being used by the regime recall the worst days of the ‘Black Spring’ of 2003.”An outspoken critic of regime in his blog, called “Los hijos que nadie quiso” (The children no one wanted), Santiesteban-Prats was given a five-year jail sentence after being convicted on trumped-up charges of “home violation” and “injuries” in a summary trial in December 2012.He began serving the sentence in April 2013 in San Miguel del Padrón prison on the outskirts of Havana, where he was subjected to mistreatment and acts of torture.His disappearance followed an interview that his son, Eduardo Angel Santiesteban, gave to Miami-based Televisión Martí on 15 July in which he said he was forced to testify against his father and that the prosecution’s claim that his father physically attacked his former wife was a complete fabrication.Santiesteban-Prats is on the Reporters Without Borders list of “information heroes .” Cuba is ranked 170th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index – the lowest position of any country in the Americas.

The nomination will be confirmed after a Senate vote that is being set for a later date.Calabria’s nomination was voted on by the Senate Banking Committee along with the nominations for Bimal Patel, to be an Assistant Secretary of the Treasury; Todd M. Harper, to be a Member of the National Credit Union Administration Board; and Rodney Hood, of North Carolina, to be a Member of the National Credit Union Administration Board”If confirmed all these nominees will play integral roles in helping to promote the U.S. trade and facilitate commerce abroad, oversee policy and regulation of the financial system and support our nation’s housing system,” said Sen. Mike Crapo in his remarks before the vote.Calabria was nominated for the post of Director FHFA by the Trump administration in December 2018. Prior to being nominated for this position, he was the Chief Economist to Vice President Mike Pence.“I congratulate Mark Calabria on his nomination as director for the Federal Housing Finance Agency,” said Ed Delgado, President and CEO of The Five Star Institute. “Housing finance policy is approaching a critical juncture and we look forward to working with Dr. Calabria and the team at FHFA towards implementing regulations that preserve and protect homeownership.”Recently, Calabria had told the Senate Banking Committee during a hearing that he was committed to making the FHFA a “World-class regulator.””FHFA is absolutely necessary,” Calabria had said while answering a question on why he wanted to take up this job, despite his past remarks. “In fact, I want to raise the stature of FHFA. I remember how the employees at its predecessor felt and their inability to stand up and be able to do effective financial regulation. I’m committed to seeing turning FHFA into a world-class regulator.”While his prepared remarks didn’t mention the current administration’s goal of the privatization of the government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs), Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, Calabria addressed these issues during his discussions with the Committee. Calabria said that if he was confirmed as Director of the FHFA his role would be to “carry out the clear intent of Congress, not impose my own vision.”During his nomination hearing, Calabria gave an outline of what his priorities would be if confirmed. Calabria said that a number of critical elements were needed in reform such as a “greater need for competition.” He said the current FHFA mandate was clearly where “the regulator cannot make such changes.” As a result, he said, “The very broad changes that have to happen in the mortgage finance system have to be done by Congress.”Calabria said that if he was confirmed as the FHFA Director his objective would be to ensure the GSEs were, “well capitalized, well managed, and well regulated.”Addressing his views on the affordable housing goals Calabria said that his past concerns with affordable housing goals were in the context of “two large institutions with zero capital.” However, he added, “I do believe we can get to a spot where we can have risk-taking via affordable housing goals if we can have an appropriate regulatory structure that has capital backing those goals. I’m very concerned about any large financial institution where we push it to take an additional risk without the appropriate regulatory structure in place.”Clarifying his comments on getting rid of the GSEs in the past, he said that they were essentially pointed towards getting rid of the model of privatizing gains and socialize losses. “I believe all large financial institutions need to be well capitalized more managed, more regulated, and I believe the GSEs were “none of the above” before the crisis. “I want these entities to be good corporate citizens, I want them to be the model of how other corporation should want to behave.” Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Calabria Nom Clears Senate Committee, What’s Next?
