The nerd’s revenge: only elites need apply

first_img AN investment banker’s quandary: how do you get your favourite clients to invest a large chunk of cash in a private firm on the basis of little financial information and a huge valuation?If anyone knows, it’s those ex-Ivy Leaguers at Goldman. Surely practised in the art of sending out intriguing invitations to events for secret societies, Goldman bankers sent out a 400-word invitation to tempt investors toward a $2m minimum investment in Facebook.“When you have the chance, I wanted to find a time to discuss a highly confidential and time sensitive investment opportunity in a private company,” says the mysterious missive.“For confidentiality reasons, I am unable to tell you the name of the company,” it teases. It only needed a wax seal. Of course, the presentation is particularly fitting if you believe the story of the recent movie The Social Network, a semi-fictionalised account of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s brief spell at Harvard before he dropped out.The film supposes that he created the website in order to curry favour with the privileged kids who populate Harvard’s exclusive “Final Clubs”, party clubs housed in mansions.Now, it seems, Facebook equity is itself the grand prize open only to a select few. The geek gets the last laugh.RUN OUT OF TOWNEngland cricket fans might have had a merry time yesterday, as the national team streaked ahead ­– and is likely to clinch an Ashes victory today – but bookie Sporting Index wasn’t quite so jubilant.With the original market in favour of Australia at 90-130 runs, those Barmy Army punters who bought in at £10 a run came away with a cool £9,420 by the end of the day’s exertions, as England soared to 852 runs ahead of the Aussies. As a spokesman for the bookie summarised it: “A severe case of the runs at Sporting Index.”FINE WINESIn a review of last year’s investment opportunities, Robin Boyle, managing director of investment company Athelney Trust, has highlighted a particularly good bet: “The value of investment-grade Claret rose 32 per cent on the back of demand from Asia,” he wrote in his summary, “but wine has a great advantage over all other types of investment in that winners and losers may buy the stuff – the former to celebrate, the latter to commiserate.”As for stock-picking globally, Boyle insists that not even the psychic Paul the Octopus, who so mysteriously predicted the outcome of many a World Cup match before he died, would have had trouble in 2010, given the backwards progress in fashionable markets like China and Brazil. An unfortunate way to loose a few million squid.ANT ON DECKShoppers at Land Securities’ One New Change ­– the City’s only seven-day mall – might have been bemused to come across annoyingly chirpy entertainment duo Ant and Dec on the roof terrace yesterday. It seems the cheerful pair were busy filming for Britain’s Got Talent. The Capitalist has never been able to remember which of the two boyish presenters is which, but the important matter was that they both seemed to fit comfortably under one Union Jack umbrella.

BETDAQ moves to the “next level” with Streaming API

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter BETDAQ moves to the “next level” with Streaming API Email Address Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Sports betting Exchange BETDAQ has launched a new Streaming API service for its commercial partners in a move it said will help clients reduce their overheads and boost efficiencies. The service automatically provides instant pricing information across a range of markets, removing the need for customers to pull data manually. The new system streams a tailored selection of updates on price movements and available volumes, enabling both traders and retail clients to set the service to best suit their own customers. Sportsbook operators that opt in to the service will also benefit from access to the BETDAQ Commercial API feed for automated risk management and hedging. The platform processes around 18 billion order each year, according to BETDAQ.Alan Casey, commercial manager at BETDAQ, said: “The launch of Streaming API takes the BETDAQ Commercial API feed to the next level, ensuring further efficiencies as well as a greater reduction in overheads and resource requirements for our sportsbook partners.” The new service launch comes after BETDAQ recently switched to a permanent 2% commission structure. The company said the move has helped to drive both player and liquidity partner acquisition. “The successful introduction of 2% commission has been responsible for a marked uplift in trading volumes that has resulted in improved prices and ever-increasing liquidity levels,” Casey said. “There has never been a better time to become a Commercial API partner.” BETDAQ was acquired by Ladbrokes in February 2013, going on to become a part of the wider Ladbrokes-Coral Group in November 2017. BETDAQ now operates as part of GVC, after it acquired Ladbrokes-Coral in March this year. BETDAQ is powered by a betting exchange platform run by Exchange Platform Solutions (EPS). This platform is also utilised by various other sports betting brokerages and websites for sports wagering and risk management.Image: Race Timecenter_img 17th September 2018 | By contenteditor Topics: Sports betting Tech & innovation Service provides instant pricing information in various markets Tags: Mobile Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shopslast_img read more

Please enter your email address here Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate From the St. Johns River Water Management District Rainfall during January was above average across the 18 counties of the St. Johns River Water Management District. A full report outlining hydrological conditions was presented at the district’s February Governing Board meeting, held offsite today at the University of Central Florida.According to district data, even the southernmost counties, which are currently experiencing drought conditions, recorded an increase in rainfall. With this rainfall, surface water flow conditions in the Upper St. Johns River Basin briefly rebounded slightly from the extremely low flow conditions in December.Twelve-month rainfall totals continue to show the effects of the prolonged below-average rainfall in the southern portion of the district and the prolonged above-average rainfall in the central region. For example,12-month rainfall totals in Marion, Alachua, and Putnam counties show greater than 60 inches of rainfall, while Indian River and Brevard counties recorded less than 45 inches.Other highlights from the hydrologic conditions report for January 2019 are:Lake levels across the district increased, including a slight increase in Blue Cypress Lake in the upper basin; however, Blue Cypress remains below both the long-term average and the regulation schedule level. In Clay County, Lake Brooklyn water levels increased nearly a foot during January.Flow in the central Florida tributaries to the St. Johns River (the Econlockhatchee, Wekiva and Ocklawaha rivers) remained very high throughout the month, as did flow in the St. Marys River.Upper Floridan aquifer conditions (groundwater levels) were in the high range in the north and western portions of the district, and in the normal range elsewhere.Spring flows across the district remained in the normal range, except for Volusia Blue, which had daily flows in the high range for most of January, and Silver Springs, which also showed an increase.About the St. Johns River Water Management DistrictSt. Johns River Water Management District staff are committed to ensuring the sustainable use and protection of water resources for the benefit of the people of the district and the state of Florida. The St. Johns River Water Management District is one of five districts in Florida managing groundwater and surface water supplies in the state. The district encompasses all or part of 18 northeast and east-central Florida counties.

From a Pennsylvania prison: The torture chair

first_imgDec. 26 — Power to the people!Since this has been the holiday season of consumer shopping frenzies and enlarged corporate profiteering, I thought it would only be fitting to offer a present of my own to the millions of workers out there who rarely get a glance inside the U.S. Torture Centers to see firsthand the U.S. torture devices right off the assembly line. So here is an exclusive exposé to the masses who read Workers World newspaper.Here is the clever publicity photo from just one of numerous U.S. companies pushing a sanitized, sterilized version of the so-called “Compliance Chair.” This product’s original purpose was for immobilization and “secure” transportation of a human being to a vehicle or a close destination within Bureaus of Corrections and other judicial centers.The machine may not appear too threatening. At a quick glance, or to the inexperienced public, it would be easy not to see the enormous pain inflicted by this horrid device.But it is this monstrous machine that prison plantations nationwide have adapted into a torture device where human beings are strapped in for hours of severe pain.Straight from the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections, here is a picture of this torturous mechanical device as it is used, absent the inviting display by companies marketing the “Compliance Chair.” This torture chair is used throughout every prison plantation in Pennsylvania, on men, women and children.What you are seeing at the top of the photo are called the “shoulder straps,” which bend the shoulders backwards on a decline. In the middle of this barbaric chair are the “waist restraint straps,” which pull the pelvis and abdomen in such a manner as to cause an arch in the spine between the shoulder blades and the lower back spinal cord. The waist restraint straps guarantee that the victim of this torture is unable to move, often for periods of eight to 14 hours or more. Here you see on the sides two planks of plastic with straps. These are called the “wrist restraint straps,” and they cut off the blood circulation to both hands. The arms are laid into these restraints, a hard surface with no cushion or anything of that nature. There is nothing cozy or comfortable about this instrument of pain!The oppressors apply these straps in a deliberate manner so that they are so tight against the flesh that the poor soul’s hands can swell three times their normal size. Discoloration occurs in phases, from blue to green, then purple to black, while the fingers sting and then eventually go numb from lack of blood circulation. The final photo shows, at the bottom of the chair, the “ankle restraint straps,” which, like the wrist restraints, stop the bloodflow to the lower extremities. When the agents of repression assemble these plastic-coated straps around the ankles, there is no space left between the ankle straps and the skin, thus no blood circulation to the feet. The human being tortured in this fashion will feel their feet swell, turning blue, green and purple, causing incredible pain.For the victim of this torture device, there can be no movement from head to toe. The pain is so unbearable that, over the course of 8- to 14-hour confinement in the chair, the victim will travel outside their body in shock and will hallucinate.We want readers to know that, in addition, prisoners are naked, and that it is not unusual for there to be cold air blowing, for the victim to be sprayed with pepper spray and for the victim to have to sit in their own urine and feces until released.In this holiday season, besides Christmas, New Year’s, Hannukah and Kwanzaa, there is “Watch Night.” I’ve been told that this is the night that slaves knew at midnight they would be free because of the Emancipation Proclamation — or so they thought.With instruments of torture, the whip has simply evolved. So I ask readers and workers, are we really free? What’s the difference between whips and straps?Sehu Kessa Saa Tabansi is currently incarcerated in the Pennsylvania prison system. He is a founding member of the New Black August Collective and is serving a life sentence after having been wrongfully convicted.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Corn Growers Urges Action on National Food Labeling Standard

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Corn Growers Urges Action on National Food Labeling Standard SHARE Facebook Twitter Corn Growers Urges Action on National Food Labeling Standard By Gary Truitt – Oct 21, 2015 The National Corn Growers Association urged the Senate to act quickly to pass a uniform, national food labeling standard in light of today’s Senate Agriculture Committee hearing, highlighting the safety of genetically modified ingredients and the importance of biotechnology. “NCGA and Congress agree: consumers should have access to food choices that are safe, nutritious, abundant and affordable,” said NCGA Trade Policy and Biotechnology Action Team Chair John Linder, a farmer from Edison, Ohio. “Congress, and only Congress, can now prevent a costly and confusing patchwork of state labeling laws from taking effect next year. The Senate must act now to avoid the negative consequences inaction will surely bring for consumers and farmers across the country.”Experts told the Committee that the overwhelming scientific consensus is that genetically modified organisms are safe for consumers and the environment. Experts also testified on the vital role biotechnology plays in modern agriculture, allowing farmers to produce higher yields on less land, using fewer pesticides and water, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.“Today’s testimony underscored the fact that biotechnology is not only safe, but an important part of creating an efficient, affordable and reliable food chain. NCGA urges the Senate to move forward on common-sense legislation for a uniform, national food labeling standard,” said Linder.In July, legislation passed the House of Representatives with strong bipartisan support that would create uniform national food labeling standards. If the Senate does not follow suit, Vermont’s GMO labeling law will go into effect next July. Meanwhile, other states and localities have passed or are considering state-level labeling mandates. Such a patchwork of state and local laws will create upheaval in our national food supply, hurting consumers and farmers alike.

Um jornalista morto, outro ferido : Repórteres sem Fronteiras pede inquéritos aprofundados

first_img Alarm after two journalists murdered in Brazil October 9, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Um jornalista morto, outro ferido : Repórteres sem Fronteiras pede inquéritos aprofundados Help by sharing this information May 13, 2021 Find out more BrazilAmericas Repórteres sem Fronteiras expressou a sua profunda comoção após o assassinato de Sávio Brandão e o ataque de que teria sido vítima Felipe Santolia, dois jornalistas que trabalham nos Estados de Mato Grosso e Piauí. A organização pediu a Paulo de Tarso Ramos Ribeiro, Ministro da Justiça, que seja efetuado um inquérito aprofundado sobre estes dois casos. Repórteres sem Fronteiras exprimiu, principalmente, o desejo de que a Polícia Federal participe desses inquéritos.”A participação da Polícia Federal nesses inquéritos é, ao mesmo tempo, legítima e necessária”, explicou Robert Ménard, secretário geral de Repórteres sem Fronteiras. “Já que existe suspeita de que o crime organizado esteja envolvido no assassinato de Sávio Brandão, o inquérito é da competência da Polícia Federal. No caso de Felipe Santolia, como o jornalista está ligado à campanha eleitoral para a reeleição do Governador do Estado, é importante que o inquérito não fique somente nas mãos da Polícia Civil, sob o comando do Governador”, acrescentou Robert Ménard. Este último se congratulou pelo fato de que, no caso de Sávio Brandão, o Ministro tenha se comprometido a dar o apoio das autoridades federais e pediu detalhes sobre este apoio.Num relatório publicado em 3 de outubro 2002 (disponível no site www.rsf.org), Repórteres sem Fronteiras enfatiza o fato de que, no Brasil, República Federativa, “o assassinato de um jornalista é da competência exclusiva da justiça dos Estados, mais sensível a pressões locais, e da Polícia Civil, controlada pelos políticos locais. (…) Com salários três vezes mais altos que o de seus colegas das polícias civil e militar, os agentes da Polícia Federal, encarregada principalmente da luta contra o crime organizado, são igualmente mais bem-equipados e menos influenciáveis por interesses políticos locais”. Na conclusão, a organização recomenda às autoridades brasileiras a adoção de um projeto de reforma do Judiciário que ponha os inquéritos sobre assassinatos de jornalistas na alçada da Polícia Federal.No dia 30 de setembro de 2002, Sávio Brandão, dono do diário Folha do Estado, de Cuiabá, capital do Mato Grosso, foi assassinado por dois pistoleiros que circulavam de moto. O diário, no qual Sávio Brandão assinava alguns artigos, andava denunciando a implantação do crime organizado na região e tinha revelado, recentemente, a existência de uma rede ilegal de máquinas caça-níqueis. Na edição de 1° de outubro, a Folha do Estado estabeleceu relação entre o assassinato de Sávio Brandão e o “poder paralelo” que denunciava em suas colunas. Sávio Brandão era também dono de uma construtora e vários organismos de imprensa, dentre os quais a Rádio Cidade. De acordo com a redação do jornal, não recebeu ameaças. Advogado e empresario, Sávio Brandão dirigira várias empresas antes de investir no setor de imprensa, na metade dos anos 1990.A polícia acredita que se trate de um crime cometido por profissionais e, no entanto, o Ministério da Justiça Federal comprometeu-se a ajudar o governo do Estado do Mato Grosso na luta contra o crime organizado, sem maiores detalhes sobre as modalidades dessa ajuda. No dia 1° de outubro, Hércules Araújo Coutinho, cabo da Polícia Militar, e Célio Alves de Souza, ex-agente da Polícia Militar, foram presos por suposta participação no crime. Hércules Araújo Coutinho teria sido reconhecido pelas testemunhas como sendo um dos assassinos. A perícia balística e o exame das impressões digitais também o incriminavam, inclusive relacionando-o com outros cinco assassinatos ocorridos, este ano, naquela região. O acusado nega qualquer envolvimento na morte do jornalista.No dia 5 de outubro de 2002, Felipe Santolia, da Rádio Chibata, estação comunitária da cidade de Esperantina (Estado do Piauí), foi encontrado crucificado numa árvore. O jornalista tinha um prego cravado na mão direita; a esquerda estava amarrada com um arame; e recebeu também um tiro na perna. Diz ter sido atacado e crucificado por indivíduos desconhecidos e encapuzados, que lhe fizeram sinais para parar, pois estavam, aparentemente, em pane, na beira da estrada. Segundo Santolia, os dois homens estavam prestes a voltar com gasolina para queimá-lo vivo, quando pessoas que passavam pelo local o viram. Na sua opinião, o gesto teria partido de adversários políticos, que tinha acusado de corrupção. Felipe Santolia, em campanha para o Partido da Frente Liberal (PFL), tinha anunciado que levaria ao conhecimento público uma fita que mostrava candidatos ao cargo de deputados, de um partido adversário, comprando votos para as eleições de 6 de outubro.Citado pela Agência France-Presse, o tenente Veras, encarregado do inquérito, declarou que “poderia tratar-se de uma montagem”. Afirmou também que as fitas que Felipe Santolia diz possuir ainda não estavam nas mãos da Polícia. O tenente enfatiza o fato de que Felipe Santolia tinha distribuído folhetos com a própria foto, embora não seja candidato, nos quais havia escrito “Retirem os corruptos do trono e nele coloquem os humildes”. “É, no mínimo, estranho que, no dia seguinte, tenha sido encontrado crucificado”, observa. Fontes locais disseram a Repórteres sem Fronteiras que Felipe Santolia, ex-seminarista, tinha tendência a se mostrar demais. No entanto, segundo Efrém Ribeiro, correspondente do diário O Globo, o profundo ferimento causado pela bala na perna do jornalista torna quase inviável a hipótese de auto-mutilação.
