It created an online game and offered to donate 88p to Parkinson’s UK each time someone won.The Back to the Future game requires players to click on one of three blue circles within the Flux Capacitor as they light up in random order. The object is to click or tap on them fast enough within 30 seconds to boost the Delorean car to the magic 88 mph at which it will roar into the future.The company offered to donate 88p for each successful participant, up to a maximum donation of £500. It created the game on its own, so its terms and conditions made clear that it was not endorsed or administered by the charity, although no doubt they were pleased to benefit from it.

Norway wealth fund develops software program to analyze climate investment risk

first_imgNorway wealth fund develops software program to analyze climate investment risk FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Reuters:Norway’s $975 billion wealth fund, the world’s largest, wants to know how much of a company’s carbon dioxide emission costs can be passed on to customers. The fund holds 1.4 percent of all globally listed shares, representing 9,000 companies, so a lot is at stake for the fund as it considers how to allocate investments amid rising climate-related costs.Norges Bank Investment Management is turning to data analytics, building a software tool that can help guide the process. Called Angle, the software can now take non-financial data, such as carbon dioxide emissions, combine it with trading data and earnings data of a given company, and see how it will affect its earnings in the years ahead. The next step, which has not been disclosed before, is to develop the platform to see how much of the carbon cost can be passed on to customers and how much companies must pay themselves.“For us, it is reasonably obvious that the focus on climate change risk will not go away and that is there as a risk for the companies (we invest in), whether directly or indirectly,” fund CEO Yngve Slyngstad said in an interview. “Therefore, there is an issue about the pricing of different companies,” he told Reuters, adding that the latest development of the software was not yet completed. “There is more work to be done on it,” he said.The work began when the fund was mandated by the Norwegian Parliament to divest from companies that derive 30 percent of more of its business or activities from thermal coal in 2015.Other institutional investors are also pushing companies to disclose the data they need to assess the climate-change risk to their investments. “The Norwegian sovereign wealth fund is one of the leading institutional investors when it comes to the analysis of climate risk,” Stephanie Pfeifer, chief executive of the institutional investors group on climate change, a group of 163 pension funds and asset managers representing over 21 trillion euros ($23.8 trillion) in assets.More: Norway wealth fund builds tool to analyse climate risk to portfoliolast_img read more

Panama Commits To Fight Against Drug Trafficking

first_img Panamanian authorities have declared war on drug trafficking and organized crime. Officials carried out the largest narcotics seizure of the year earlier this month when the National Naval Air Service of Panama (SENAN) captured a speed boat that crashed into a seafront house in the city of Colón, on the Caribbean Sea. SENAN officials found more than 2,400 kilos (5,280 pounds) of cocaine on the vessel. A Colombian national was arrested, but the other three crew members on the boat managed to escape. “It doesn’t seem coincidental to me that north of Veraguas [155 miles west of Panama City] there are 15 people in custody for having links to drug trafficking,” Minister of Public Safety José Raúl Mulino told reporters, according to EFE. “This shipment [contained] ski masks, knives and military ammunition apparently for these people.” Panamanian President Ricardo Martinelli said the region needs a strategic counter-narcotics policy, during a summit of the Central American Integration System (SICA) earlier this month in El Salvador. “Many people die unnecessarily due to drugs, the same drugs that prompt corruption and discourage investment,” said Ricardo Martinelli, as reported by the Panamanian daily La Prensa. In 2009, Panamanian law enforcement agencies confiscated 52.1 tons of cocaine and 1.7 tons of marijuana, according to the Public Ministry. Officials also said US$11 million in cash was seized, US$3.2 million more than the previous year. Javier Caraballo, the country’s drug prosecutor, said authorities have identified Mexican criminal organizations in Panama that are working with Mexico-based drug cartels. But he added the seizures by Panamanian officials have decreased the illegal activities of national and international criminal organizations. “We have seen cases in which almost all the people apprehended, linked to these shipments, are Mexicans that don’t have a permanent residence in the country,” said Caraballo, as reported by EFE. “However, they arrived [in the country] to organize drug trafficking.” An undercover agent from the Judicial Investigations Directorate (DIJ) of the National Police told Infosurhoy.com that criminals from Latin American countries are also in Panama to supervise their illegal businesses. But local law enforcement agencies are trying to prevent them from establishing a presence. “Guatemalans, Hondurans and Colombians are coming [here] to control and oversee their operations on Panamanian territory,” said the narcotics agent, who only spoke on condition of anonymity because her life could be in jeopardy if her identity were revealed. “Now it has become more difficult for them [drug traffickers] to infiltrate ‘agents,’ but they continue to look for new strategies.” The source said that drug seizures in 2009 reflect increased efforts by counter-narcotic agencies and the naval air bases monitoring the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. “The new strategies and operational exercises and coordination with international organizations make drug traffickers find new ways and routes to traffic narcotics,” she said.

Sections rally to support disabled lawyer

first_imgSections rally to support disabled lawyer February 15, 2006 Regular News Sections rally to support disabled lawyercenter_img ‘I just want to work and pursue a career, and I will not stop until that is a reality’ Jan Pudlow Senior Editor The plight of Aaron Bates, the young lawyer with muscular dystrophy featured on the front page of the January 15 News, caught the attention of many attending the Bar Midyear Meeting in Miami who want to help.His dilemma: The personal care attendant — to help him dress and bathe and get in and out of his motorized wheelchair — was provided by the state Division of Vocational Rehabilitation throughout his education, but stopped once he landed a job as an assistant state attorney in the Fifth Judicial Circuit. Therefore, even though 25-year-old Bates wants to work, he could not accept the $40,000-a-year job and had to return home to live with his parents in Alabama.“This strikes me as absurd,” Tony Musto, a Hallandale attorney, told executive council members of both the Criminal Law Section and Government Lawyer Section. “The Bar should not stand by and let this happen.”Florida Supreme Court Clerk Thomas Hall, chair of the Appellate Law Section, added his support.“I definitely agree with Tony that the Government Lawyer Section should take the lead. Here is a guy who wants to be a public servant and he is prohibited from doing so.”Musto wants to raise money to help Bates hire the personal care attendant, estimated at $35,000 a year, while efforts are made to change legislation to make him eligible for benefits, so that he can go to work.David Rothman, a member of the Bar Board of Governors, called the idea “a great thing to do,” and offered to help bring the issue before the board at its February 17 meeting in Tallahassee.Matt Dietz, who specializes in disability law, also put out a plea in an e-mail to members of Bar leadership and fellow Equal Opportunities Law Section members, saying, “This is wrong on so many different levels, and we need to do something about it. On a human level, we, as a society, made a promise to this young man that if he did the work and received the education, and got the job, he would be able to live like everybody else, and not be condemned to institutionalization and poverty solely because of his disability.”On an economic level, Dietz said, it is much less expensive to provide a personal care attendant “than to pay all the benefits of a nonproductive, unemployed person with significant health needs. In the long run, he will eventually make enough money to become self-sufficient, and he will contribute to society as a whole.”At both the Criminal Law and Government Lawyer executive council meetings, most lawyers were sympathetic, but several expressed concern about setting a precedent and wondered how they would help the next similarly situated individual.“I think it’s a real injustice,” said George Tragos of the Criminal Law Section Executive Council. “But I’m opposed to us becoming a social services agency.”He said he supported any help that could be given to Bates’ cause, “short of giving money,” and members voted to send a letter to the Board of Governors.In the meantime, Bar staff members are monitoring legislative efforts in both the House and Senate Health Care committees to amend F.S. §413.402 to allow individuals such as Bates to qualify for personal care attendants, a benefit currently available only for those who suffered a spinal cord injury.Bates, who has been very involved with legislative staff on drafting a change in the law, said he is grateful for the Bar’s efforts to help.“Being attorneys, people naturally assume that if anyone’s rights are being dutifully protected, an attorney’s rights are. In my case, however, you see that certain social barriers trump even the brightest minds or renowned professions,” Bates said.“It is important that the legal system, and society in general, reward hard work and perseverance. I was always led to believe that it did, but have found that it does not necessarily pay dividends immediately. I am hopeful that with the influence and reputation of The Florida Bar, and help of fellow attorneys, the illogical barrier I ran into can be removed. Whatever the solution may be, I just want to work and pursue a career, and I will not stop until that is a reality.”last_img read more

The Faculty of Interdisciplinary, Italian and Cultural Studies offers excellent professional practices for its students

first_imgOn September 13, 2018, a Cooperation Agreement was signed between the Brijuni National Park Public Institution and the Faculty of Interdisciplinary, Italian and Cultural Studies (FITIKS). This cooperation between two important entities in the Istrian County is an opportunity for many. Primarily for students of Culture and Tourism and the new two-subject study Culture and Tourism and Italian Language and Culture to do their mandatory professional practice in the National Park. In addition to professional practice, ie to create practical tasks in cooperation with mentors from the National Park and subject teachers, this is an opportunity to cooperate on the activities of EU projects such as the project “New clothes of Brijuni“Which aims to improve the management of the Brijuni National Park on the principles of sustainable use of natural heritage with the aim of socio-economic development of the local environment. “Tthe name of the student acquires new knowledge, and there is no lack of a direct opportunity to show their creativity and innovation in the community. Connecting a higher education institution and a national park marks a new step forward in promoting socially responsible business in the community. Today, probably more than ever before, fostering cooperation between science and the economy is a condition for ensuring flexibility, a high quality education system and competitiveness.”, Said Assoc. Prof. dr. sc. Tea Golja, Dean of the Faculty. “The management of protected natural and cultural heritage is challenging and conditioned by the continuous search for valuable management instruments that will adequately reconcile economic, socio-cultural and environmental standards.”, Explained Dr. sc. Marno Milotić, director of the Public Institution Brijuni National Park. On the other hand, we must not forget the development of a hotel product in the field of protected heritage that requires different business models, which was pointed out by the head of the hotel service JU NP Brijuni Natasa Stojkovski and expressed satisfaction that students will have the opportunity to suggest some solutions to improve existing products within the given possibilities and numerous challenges in the immediate environment. Students will deal with the management of natural and  cultural heritage and the development of models for the improvement of the hotel product and will design new tourist experiences. “By solving practical tasks we will get the opportunity to connect theory and practice,  meet the business challenges specific to such spaces and actively participate in work processes, which will allow us to quickly and easily adapt to the workplace after graduation, which I consider extremely important”, Said the representative of the students of the Faculty, Klara Tuličić.  Collaboration with a small family camp PolidorCamp PolidorFrom now on, students of Culture and Tourism will have the opportunity to do professional practice in the Polidor camp and thus, in addition to the necessary theoretical knowledge and competencies they gain by actively participating in classes in accordance with the curricula, they will acquire practical skills and knowledge they need and easier. will prepare for what awaits them in the workplace in the future.”The education system needs to be linked to the economy and education programs need to be flexible and tailored to the needs of the labor market. Therefore, our Faculty encourages this type of cooperation, encourages activities such as fieldwork, practicum and professional practice because in this way the representatives of the real sector, ie all employers are directly involved in formulating learning outcomes, and students gain the necessary practical experience. Through our studies, we want to combine theory and practice and thus respond to the needs of the labor market. ” pointed out Dean Goliath. Cooperation with bodies Istria CountyStudents of the Faculty do professional practice and practical classes in the bodies of the Istrian County, cooperate on projects in implementation, such as the project EcoDomus, Istra Inspirit, Istra Bike & Bed and other projects in which the Istrian County is a partner or holder, and their topics are related to culture and / or tourism. “Encouraging the development of sustainable tourism is a priority of our region and we will try to get involved in all projects and encourage all valuable initiatives that will contribute to the sustainability of Istria, but we build such development systematically and gradually, through education, cooperation of stakeholders, networking. long term.”Emphasized the head Prodan Mraković”Responsible business today is a necessity and a priority. It’s the human face of business! Corporate social responsibility means creating added value for shareholders and owners, but through innovative strategies and with the creation of a positive social impact while respecting high standards of environmental and spatial protection. This is especially important in tourism where we must emphasize the importance of space and climate, resources without which it is impossible to build a quality tourist experience, and above all in the tourist experience should implement local features, tradition, culture, customs, language or in one word – your own identity. Responsible tourists always and everywhere feel the difference of experience.”  concluded Assoc. Prof. dr. sc. Tea Golja. Also, the cooperation with the city of Poreč should be emphasized, where students will get to know the work of city institutions such as the library and the Public Open University, as well as the Tourist Board. One is theory and the other is market, and it is precisely the best way of education that is to combine theory with quality practice.last_img read more

A new rulebook on diving on the Croatian coast was presented in Rijeka

first_imgThis week, the agenda of the session of the Expert Group of Underwater Activities of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce was “Ordinance on the procedure and manner of issuing permits for underwater activities in inland waters and the territorial sea of ​​the Republic of Croatia in areas where cultural property is located.” “Our supervisory services are very good, from the captaincy to the inspections, and they will now have quality supervisory instruments. Namely, an electronic diving diary is being introduced, ie no longer paper, and diving organizers, either clubs or centers, will print this diary in electronic format. He will come directly into the hands of the captaincy and the police and that service, when they go out to sea, they will already have information on the position of which ship, with how many divers… So, with all the necessary information. Therefore, if they find divers who are not registered, they automatically go to the control”, Said Hitrec and continued. “Thus, the new Ordinance actually ultimately achieves greater security for all. When someone is killed at sea, whether registered or not, a whole team of rescuers and services rises to help the victim. All this costs money, they do not even have insurance, but what is worse, it is often not even known exactly where the victim is at sea. With the new regulations, no one will be able to get a diving diary if he is not a legal or natural person who must have the prerequisites to be able to do so at all.” You can find the ordinance in its entirety HERE. Ferdinand Hitrec, President of the Diving Tourism Section of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce of the Rijeka County Chamber, explained that the new Ordinance applies to all entities that participate in diving – those more professional, but also those less professional. It is for these reasons that the new legislation plans to introduce more order and increase security. Source: New sheet; Ministry of Culture; National newspapers He also said that the diving season lasts all year round, and during the summer months there are often the least organized groups of divers. Dry suits and the development of diving techniques have contributed to diving opportunities throughout the year. PRESENT YOUR DIVING CENTER FOR FREE ON THE MAIN WEBSITE OF OUR TOURISM – CROATIA.HR RELATED NEWS: The director of the Kvarner Tourist Board, Irena Peršić Živadinov, presented at the session the possibility of branding the diving offer through the brand “Kvarner diving” and “Kvarner diving plus”. In order to get one of these two stamps, the position of the center, equipment, period of operation, additional offer, accommodation of divers and the like will be looked at. Getting a stamp also means inclusion in a brochure, promotion on the website, fairs and the like. So far, twelve diving centers have shown interest. “Of course, we are already working with diving centers on promotions, we have been to specialized fairs and the like, and Kvarner has a very great potential in diving tourism.”, Concluded Peršić Živadinov. In addition to the new Rulebook, the Ministry of Culture also announced “Tender for the issuance of diving permits in protected areas – zones for 2019 – 2023.” CROATIA GETS A NEW UNIQUE ATTRACTION – THE FIRST CROSS ROAD UNDER THE SEAlast_img read more
