Muller, who founded the desk when he joined the bank 18 years ago, will take the full team of 60 employees with him, to the new firm to be called PDT Advisors – standing for Process Driven Trading Advisors. Morgan Stanley plans to keep a stake in the firm and will continue to provide it with trading and prime brokerage services, but the move will allow PDT to find external investors for the company. The new arrangement follows a host of similar moves across Wall Street due to the Volcker rule – part of the Frank-Dodd reform act – designed to curb excessive risk-taking, by banning US banks from trading with their own money, and limiting their investments in private equity and hedge funds. Peer Goldman Sachs’s head of proprietary trading is leaving to set up a separate fund. Muller said yesterday he was “excited” about the move – which is likely to enable more adventurous trading strategies – than in its current form as part of a heavily regulated bank.

En Los Ángeles, los episcopales se asocian con otros para…

first_img Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Un niño refugiado sirio poco después de llegar, el 20 de noviembre —en una balsa atestada de inmigrantes y refugiados—, a una playa de la isla griega de Lesbos. Los países balcánicos han comenzado a filtrar el flujo de migrantes a Europa, concediéndoles paso a los que huyen del conflicto en el Oriente Medio y Afganistán, pero rechazando a otros provenientes de África y Asia, dijeron el jueves testigos de las Naciones Unidas y Reuters. Foto de Yannis Behrakis/Reuters.[Episcopal News Service] Luego de tres años en un campamento de refugiados en Jordania, una familia siria de cuatro personas —a punto de convertirse en cinco—llegó el 12 de noviembre al Aeropuerto Internacional de Los Ángeles con las pocas posesiones que habían atiborrado en maletas y bolsas.Esperándoles estaban un grupo de bienvenida de la iglesia de Todos los Santos [All Saints Church] en Pasadena y Raffi Manser, asistente social del Servicio Interreligioso de Refugiados e Inmigración (IRIS, por su sigla en inglés).La iglesia está asociada con IRIS, un programa de la Diócesis Episcopal de Los Ángeles y una de las aproximadas 30 agencias afiliadas del servicio de reasentamiento de la Sociedad Misionera Nacional y Extranjera, el Ministerio Episcopal de Migración, que ha estado reasentando refugiados en toda la nación durante más de 75 años.Sin familiares ni amigos en Estados Unidos, sin historial de crédito ni empleo establecido, conseguir y amueblar viviendas para los recién llegados constituye un gigantesco desafío, dijo Manser.Es ahí donde Todos Los Santos intervino para ayudar, abasteciendo el apartamento, situado a unos 24 kilómetros al este de Pasadena, dijo Juliana Serrano, asociada principal para paz y justicia. “A través de nuestro grupo de bienvenida, garantizamos donaciones para hacer posible su reubicación. Llegaron a un apartamento totalmente amueblado con despensa y nevera llena de víveres”.Ella dijo que “la trayectoria de la congregación en esto comenzó antes del viernes y de los ataques en París. Donde esto comenzó para nosotros fue con esas trágicas imágenes de los refugiados sirios que huyen de su país en botes, y de la impactante, perturbadora y grotesca imagen de ese niño flotando en la costa” el 3 de septiembre.“En ese momento, comenzamos a considerar entre nosotros cuál iba a ser nuestra respuesta”, dijo Serano.Esa resolución no ha cambiado, a pesar del clima de temor provocado por los ataques del 13 de noviembre, que mataron al menos a 129 personas e hirieron a muchas otras. “Estamos al otro extremo del espectro, diciendo que recibiremos a estos individuos y a estas familias”, dijo Serrano. “Reconocemos que estos refugiados no son los extremistas islámicos que han participado en estos ataques. Ellos son también personas que están padeciendo ese extremismo y son las víctimas de ese extremismo, y necesitan a alguien que esté con ellas y responda por ellas”.Llamados a la justicia en medio de un clima de temorMás de la mitad de los gobernadores de EE.UU. puede proponerse rechazar a los refugiados sirios, pero los episcopales rechazan esa actitud, diciendo que acoger al extranjero es ahora más esencial que nunca antes.Wendy Johnson, encargada de comunicaciones del Ministerio Episcopal de Migración, dijo que 175 personas participaron en un seminario en la web el 19 de noviembre para explorar cómo los episcopales podían intervenir; otro seminario está programado para el 23 de noviembre.“Debemos hacer oír nuestras voces”, dijo Deborah Stein, directora del Ministerio Episcopal de Migración, durante el seminario en la web. Ella hizo notar que la Cámara de Representantes de EE.UU. aprobó por 289 votos a favor y 137 en contra una medida que podía limitar el reasentamiento e impedirles la entrada en el país a sirios e iraquíes. Cuarenta y siete demócratas se unieron a la votación. El presidente Obama ha dicho que vetaría el proyecto de ley si llega a aprobarlo el Senado.Voluntarias intentan confortar a una siria embarazada poco después de llegar en una balsa a la isla griega de Lesbos el 17 de noviembre. Foto de Yannis Behrakis/Reuters.Un mensaje por Twitter de la Casa Blanca en #RefugeesWelcome hacía notar que el Alto Comisionado de las Naciones Unidas para los Refugiados había referido 23.092 refugiados sirios al Programa de Admisión de Refugiados de EE.UU., de los cuales el Departamento de Seguridad Nacional sólo había intervenido a 7.014 refugiados desde 2011. Desde el año fiscal 2011, sólo 2.034 refugiados sirios habían sido admitidos en Estados Unidos, de los cuales ninguno ha sido arrestado o removido por cargos de terrorismo.Stein dijo haber oído de algunos afiliados locales que el clima de temor provocado por los ataques en París ha dado lugar que algunos refugiados teman por su seguridad en Estados Unidos. “Estamos preocupados de que no estén siendo bien recibidos aquí y que esto los traumatice aún más”.Pero Michael B. Curry, obispo primado de la Iglesia Episcopal, aconseja “No temáis” y en todas partes los obispos de la Iglesia están haciendo oír sus voces, e instando a los funcionarios públicos a honrar los valores éticos y morales, y alentando al electorado a recordar sus raíces religiosas”.Alan Gates, obispo de Massachusetts, junto con su obispa sufragánea Gayle Harris, y el obispo de Massachusetts Occidental Doug Fisher, se unieron a otros líderes religiosos frente a la decisión del gobernador Charlie Baker: “Estamos preparados para recibir y apoyar a refugiados sirios”, según la carta enviada el 18 de noviembre por el Consejo de Iglesias de Massachusetts.“Nuestras iglesias están en cada ciudad y pueblo de Massachusetts”, continúa diciendo la carta. “Creemos en una mancomunidad y en una nación que vive conforme a nuestros más profundos valores, no [según] nuestros temores. Acogemos con agrado la oportunidad de reunirnos con usted y planear la estrategia para el reasentamiento de los que huyen de la violencia en Siria”.Niños refugiados sirios en un bloque de apartamentos a medio construir en Reyfoun, el Líbano, cerca de la frontera con Siria, hacen el signo de la paz. Las familias huyeron de Siria debido a la guerra y ahora viven en un sitio en construcción. Foto de Eoghan Rice/Trocaire vía Wikimedia.El obispo de Arizona Kirk Smith cuestionó la autoridad del gobernador Doug Ducey para limitar la entrada en el estado no sólo de los sirios, sino de todos los refugiados. “Nosotros los cristianos no podemos entregarnos a esa especie de sed de venganza que parece recorrer nuestro país en respuesta a los ataques del EI en Francia, Egipto y Líbano esta semana”, dijo él. “Tenemos una larga tradición bíblica de ayudar al indigente y a los refugiados”.De manera semejante, Todd Ousley, obispo de Michigan Oriental, calificó el “intento del gobernador Rick Snyder de bloquear la aceptación de refugiados más allá de la autoridad de su cargo… una reacción basada en el temor a una serie muy compleja de intereses políticos y humanitarios. Como cristianos en la tradición episcopal, nuestro amor de Dios nos compele a amar a nuestro prójimo y Jesús nos enseña que los actos de misericordia demuestran nuestra propia buena vecindad”.Scott Mayer, el obispo provisional de Fort Worth, también alentóa los políticos “a mantenerse firmes en el poder del Espíritu Santo y en la promesa de nuestro Señor Jesús”.“Insto a los episcopales a encontrar modos de ayudar a los refugiados en sus comunidades. Oren por ellos. Y dejen que vuestras manos sean las manos de Jesús. Que vuestras sonrisas muestren el amor acogedor de Jesús, vuestro valor en presencia del miedo copie el valor de Jesús, vuestra apacible confianza en que todo coopera para el bien brille como la de Jesús. Porque al igual que María, al igual que usted y yo, los refugiados llevan consigo la imagen de Dios, un Dios que espera nacer de nuevo en esta Navidad”.Servicio Interreligioso de Refugiados e Inmigración: muchas maneras de ayudarPara Manser, del IRIS, las horas son largas e impredecibles, pero gratificantes. Llegan a 10 los casos del que se ha ocupado en noviembre, sin incluir los casos que aún supervisa de meses anteriores.Los recién llegados son jóvenes y viejos, familias de cinco miembros, individuos solteros, parejas de ancianos. Algunos son cristianos, algunos, musulmanes, de Irak, Irán, Afganistán, Siria, algunos desplazados durante años, algunos provienen de campamentos o de zonas urbanas, todos a la espera de la oportunidad de comenzar de nuevo.“Cada refugiado tiene su propia historia” y los asistentes sociales de IRIS los ayudan durante 90 días, brindándoles orientación cultural y clases de idioma inglés, y transporte, adiestramiento laboral y búsqueda de ayuda, evaluaciones físicas y mentales, control de casos y otros servicios sociales y locales.Hace tres años, Manser, de 32 años, acaba da llegar de Bagdad.Refugiados y migrantes, principalmente de Siria, Afganistán, Bangladesh y Pakistán, pasan, el 23 de octubre, a través de Eslovenia en su camino a Alemania. Foto de Robert Cotič vía Wikimedia Commons.Por hablar con fluidez inglés, turco, curdo, armenio y árabe, no tardo en ofrecerse como voluntario en IRIS, para asistir a otros refugiados con historias semejantes a la suya. Su propia historia, la única que él comparte sin problemas, incluye ayudar al ejército de Estados Unidos en Irak. Finalmente, recibió una visa especial a través de la embajada de EE.UU.Meghan Tumilty, directora ejecutiva del IRIS, dijo que la agencia, que también está afiliada del Servicio Luterano de Inmigración y Refugiados y al Servicio Mundial de Iglesias, reasentó 378 refugiados de octubre de 2014 a septiembre de 2015. “Alrededor del 75 por ciento eran minorías religiosas iraníes con nexos en Estados Unidos”, dijo ella. Otros incluían a refugiados de Irak, Afganistán, Cuba y la desaparecida Unión Soviética.La agencia proyecta reasentar 530 refugiados en el actual año fiscal, entre ellos algunos provenientes de Siria. Ella añadió que aproximadamente el 50 por ciento de la población siria se ha visto desplazada por el conflicto; hay más de 4 millones de refugiados sirios en Turquía, Líbano, Jordania, Irak y otros países.Aproximadamente el 76 por ciento son mujeres y niños “de manera que alrededor de 2 millones de niños han perdido todo lo que tenían”, dijo Tumilty.Al igual que Todos los Santos, las comunidades de fe pueden asociarse para ayudar a amueblar apartamentos, pero hay otros muchos medios de apoyar a los refugiados, incluido el transporte de ida y vuelta a sus citas, tutoría, el compartir comidas, la donación de mochilas y a menudo continuar la relación más allá de los seis meses previstos.A los que estén interesados en ofrecerse de voluntarios se les pide que se conecten con los afiliados locales, los cuales pueden encontrarse en la página web del Ministerio Episcopal de Migración. Además, entre los materiales educativos y de información disponibles se encuentra “Llamados a la transformación” a través de la Agencia Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo.“Es importante como episcopales (que acojamos) al extranjero”, dijo Tumilty.– La Rda.

The house is located in a suburb of Tokyo, and its size is typical for the area: the site area is 130 m2 and the total area is 100 m2. Save this picture!Courtesy of Krew ArchitectsHousing in Tokyo presents a number of challenges. It is our belief that these can best be met by creating a charming space in a very simple form of architecture. Simplicity of style also has the added advantage that it keeps building costs down. Save this picture!Courtesy of Krew ArchitectsHowever, the trend seems to have become overly minimalistic and so, to counter this, we have inserted a soft-image wood plate to the square image architecture. The wood plate creates a link between the 1st and 2nd floors, which facilitates natural ventilation, and allows for sunlight to filter down from the top to the bottom floor. Save this picture!Courtesy of Krew ArchitectsThe design incorporates a number of goals. It is our belief that public spaces within a house should be connected; moreover, we have paid great attention to ensure that the house is energy efficient; finally, we have sought to make use of natural ventilation throughout the house.The positioning of the property means that it benefits from a great deal of natural sunlight and privacy is ensured by high side windows.

Scotland8,8747,1391,73424.3 The Public Fundraising Regulatory Association (PFRA), the self-regulatory body for all types of face-to-face (F2F) fundraising, has reported a drop of just under 16% in the number of donors recruited by face-to-face fundraising on the street and door during 2009/10 compared to the previous year.Although the final few weeks of 2009/10 are still to be compiled, F2F sign-ups on the street and door have nearly reached 625,000 and are expected to total around 650,000. This represents a reduction from the 741,000 sign-ups achieved in 2008/09, but is still higher than 2007/08’s total of 587,000.The 2009/10 figures will be officially announced at the PFRA’s AGM in London this afternoon. Outside London76,70290,878-14,176-15.6 Tagged with: face-to-face Individual giving PFRA PFRA’s Chief Executive Mick Aldridge explained: “The year 2008/09 really was an exceptional year and it was unlikely we would hit those heights again. But F2F sign-ups are still extremely high. Many charities have been using this type of fundraising for up to 10 years, some for longer, and have the returns on investments to go with it. F2F signs-ups are high because charities are choosing to put their acquisition budgets into this type of fundraising”.He put the drop in total numbers down in large part to the collapse of Dialogue Direct UK in October 2009. The company had been responsible for recruiting around a quarter of all new donors signed up on the street. “Although new agencies have moved in, Dialogue’s sudden absence was bound to have an impact,” said Aldridge.Face-to-face fundraising at the door experienced a lower reduction that street fundraising – 13.78% against 19.94%. But in London it saw a 33% increase.Michael Naidu, assistant director of fundraising at Mencap and PFRA’s acting chair said that the PFRA was “fully aware of the challenges that might confront doorstep F2F and we are already preparing to meet them”. He added: “PFRA has already begun working with the Trading Standards Institute to map CCCZs and, over the course of this year, we will examine options for extending our mystery shopping programme of street F2F to the doorstep.” London92,089123,898-31,809-25.67 Street2009/102008/09Change% Change Face-to-face fundraising sign-up numbers down by 16%last_img read more

What we’re reading: Trump is skipping summits

first_img + posts ACT, SAT scores now optional for students applying to TCU in 2021 Linkedin Former President Jimmy Carter hospitalized Previous articleNews Now 11/14/18Next articleListen: Ball Don’t Lie: Melo Drama Michael Rogers RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR printWe’re back and we’re reading – everything from the New York Times to NPR. We’re trying to help you keep up with the rapid pace of politics and policy. Today, we’ve got an update on the Florida Senate race, Trump skipping summits and a decision deadline pressuring the UK.Whitaker is stuck between a rock and a hard placePresident Donald Trump’s move to replace former Attorney General Jeff Sessions with Matthew Whitaker as head of the Justice Department is receiving bipartisan pushback.The state of Maryland Tuesday filed the first legal challenge seeking to overturn Whitaker’s appointment.On Capitol Hill, newly emboldened House Democrats are already planning to have Whitaker testify when they take over the majority in January.Whitaker, who is effectively taking over Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s role of overseeing Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, now finds himself in a difficult spot. A vocal critic of the Russia probe, Whitaker now has the option of stifling the investigation or defying a president who wants him to do just that.Trump skips Asia summit, concerns?Asian world leaders will depart to Papua, New Guinea this week for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit, according to the Wall Street Journal.All leaders of the region will be in attendance, but President Donald Trump is going to “skip” the meeting and send Vice President Mike Pence in his place.By skipping the 21-nation summit, and two other meetings scheduled in Singapore on Saturday, Trump risks alienating Asia as a region that doesn’t surmount to a compelling priority on his agenda.White House officials said Trump’s packed schedule is to blame for his absence, but he will be in attendance for the G20 summit in Argentina later this month.Sen. Scott? Gov. Rick Scott is still just that, governor.According to the Associated Press, Scott was in Washington today standing shoulder to shoulder with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as he welcomed all incoming GOP senators set to take their seats in January.Scott holds the narrowest of leads over Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson in the Florida Senate race, and the recount is still ongoing.Both Scott and President Trump have accused election supervisors in two Democrat-leaning Florida counties of election fraud without any evidence.The Florida Election should be called in favor of Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis in that large numbers of new ballots showed up out of nowhere, and many ballots are missing or forged. An honest vote count is no longer possible-ballots massively infected. Must go with Election Night!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 12, 2018Brexit emergency meetingBritish Prime Minister Theresa May held an emergency cabinet meeting today to discuss a draft agreement on the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union, according to the New York Times.With the decision deadline just five months away, May’s political career is on the line.Critics on May’s left and right say the deal would leave Britain subject to EU rules and regulations without having a say in making them.May’s party does not have the majority in Parliament so the Northern Ireland Democratic Unionist Party (D.U.P.) has a stronger say in the matter.Jeffrey Donaldson, a D.U.P. lawmaker, said the Brexit deal “undermines the constitutionality and economic integrity” of the United Kingdom.That’s all we have for today.

Journalists meet to protest threats from criminal gangs

first_img Receive email alerts ColombiaAmericas December 11, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalists meet to protest threats from criminal gangs RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America RSF_en Journalists threatened by the paramilitary group “Bloque Capital – Águilas Negras” were holding a meeting in Bogotá today to publicize the dangers they face. The group has given news outlets a deadline of 1 January to leave the cities where they operate, but the government has yet to respond. Reporters Without Borders is concerned about the dangers to freedom of information and pluralism in Colombia.Águilas Negras issued three blacklists in less than four days in early December, a clear sign that it wants to silence journalists that they find troublesome. It describes the targets as “terrorists directed by FARC (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia) and the ELN (National Liberation Army)” whom the group vowed to “silence with lead”.They comprise 14 journalists and 12 media organizations, most of them community-based or alternative outlets that cover the peace talks or investigate human rights abuses, organized crime and corruption. The allegations by Águilas Negras bear a disturbing resemblance to those made by the former president, Senator Alvaro Uribe, during a debate in September this year in which he accused the public television station Canal Capital of being “an accomplice of terrorism”. “Reporters Without Borders deplores the threats directed by Águilas Negras at community media outlets,” said Claire San Filippo, head of the Reporters Without Borders Americas desk.“Attempting to silence them is an attack on media pluralism and is aimed at aggravating the climate of fear and self-censorship, thus preventing journalists from covering sensitive subjects such as corruption and organized crime. In view of the seriousness of the situation, it is unacceptable for the Colombian authorities to remain silent. By failing to condemn such threats or to make the fight against impunity a clear priority, the government is effectively giving criminal gangs a free hand”. With 56 journalists killed since 2000, Colombia remains a highly dangerous country in which to carry out any journalistic activity, especially for alternative and community news outlets that report on sensitive subjects. The country has a large number of armed criminal gangs that sow terror, with or without the complicity of the local authorities, with almost total impunity. Águilas Negras remain one of the country’s leading “Predators of Press Freedom”. They previously organized campaigns of intimidation and violence against local media in 2006 and 2007 and issued a list of five journalists targeted to be killed in March 2011. In August this year, Águilas Negras issued death threats against the freelance photographer Juan Pablo Gutiérrez. At the beginning of December, the group threatened the TV stations Canal Capital, Telesur, Nelson Arnesto, the creator of the news programme Patio Bonito Al Día as well as ’Agencia de Reporteros Sin Fronteras’ – a news outlet Reporters Without Borders has no relation with. 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies October 21, 2020 Find out more News Follow the news on Colombia RSF, IFEX-ALC and Media Defence, support FLIP and journalist Diana Díaz against state harassment in Colombia News ColombiaAmericas May 13, 2021 Find out more April 27, 2021 Find out more Reports Help by sharing this information Organisation to go further News Colombia is ranked 126th of 180 countries in the World Press Freedom Index published by Reporters Without Borders in February this year. last_img read more
