Madoff case accuses JPM

first_img whatsapp Share KCS-content Tags: NULL EXECUTIVES at JP Morgan Chase suspected that Bernard Madoff was running a Ponzi scheme almost 18 months before he was charged with defrauding his investors out of $50bn (£35bn), claims a US court filing. Bankers got blunt warnings about the convicted fraudster but ignored them to protect JPM’s own interests, claims Irving Picard, the trustee seeking to recoup $6.4bn for Madoff investors, in court papers that were unsealed yesterday.Madoff was sentenced to 150 years in jail in 2009 for masterminding the massive fraud.JP Morgan Chase said yesterday the claims were unfounded, adding: “[We] did not know about or in any way become a party to the fraud orchestrated by Bernard Madoff.” It added: “Madoff’s firm was not an important or significant customer in the context of JPMorgan’s commercial banking business.” by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodayMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen HeraldSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItWanderoamIdentical Twins Marry Identical Twins – But Then The Doctor Says, “STOP”WanderoamBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBe Madoff case accuses JPM center_img Show Comments ▼ More From Our Partners Astounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her Thursday 3 February 2011 8:25 pm whatsapplast_img read more

The gold price plunges! I’d buy these Warren Buffett-type stocks instead

The gold price plunges! I’d buy these Warren Buffett-type stocks instead Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares After surging to an all-time high of nearly $2,100 earlier this month, the gold price has plunged over the past week. I think this volatility exposes the yellow metal’s essential floor is an investment. Its price is determined by supply and demand. As such, I’d avoid gold and buy Warren Buffett-type stocks instead. Buffett-style stocksBuffett has made a considerable fortune for himself and his investors by concentrating on a small selection of companies. He likes to buy high-quality businesses with strong balance sheets and competitive advantages. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Throughout his career, the billionaire investor has also avoided the gold price. He believed it didn’t offer enough profit potential compared to equities. I think this view makes a lot of sense. Over the past few decades, stocks have produced significantly better returns than the yellow metal. Indeed, some companies have outperformed the gold price by more than 10 times since 1990. That’s why I’d buy Buffett-type stocks over gold. Today, many of these companies are trading at low prices after the recent stock market crash. Alternative to the gold priceOne of the best Buffett-style stocks to buy today maybe consumer goods giant Unilever. I think the investor would be interested in buying this stock for his own portfolio. Indeed, several years ago, its US-peer Kraft Heinz, which is backed by Buffett, tried to buy the group. The deal ultimately failed, but I think it was a big vote of confidence in Unilever. Other companies with similar qualities that Buffett might buy over the gold price include soft drinks manufacturer AG Barr. This business owns a defensive stable of brands with a large customer base. It’s also produced impressive returns for investors over the past few decades through a combination of sensible capital investments and dividends.  Pharmaceutical businesses such as GlaxoSmithKline and AstraZeneca may also be better investments than the gold price over the long term. The demand for pharmaceutical products and treatments is only growing. As the world’s population continues to expand, I think this trend is almost certain to continue. This should help these businesses improve their top and bottom lines. By comparison, there’s no guarantee the gold price will continue to rise at the same rate. If you’re not interested in picking individual stocks, buying an index tracker fund could be a good alternative. As noted above, stocks have outperformed the gold price over the past few decades. The best way to replicate this performance could be to buy the market as a whole. Buffett has even advocated this approach himself.The bottom lineOverall, I think the recent gold price crash marks a good time for investors to dump gold and buy Buffett-style stocks instead. Doing so may help you grow your financial nest egg at a faster rate in the long run.  Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 23rd August, 2020 Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Please enter your name here Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 The Anatomy of Fear Share on Facebook Tweet on Twittercenter_img By Jason Bantjes, Lecturer in the Psychology Department, Stellenbosch University and first published on rates continue to rise across both the developed and the developing worlds. This is despite many countries implementing suicide prevention programmes in line with the World Health Organisation’s guidelines.Suicide rates have increased by 60% over the past 45 years. Globally there are 16 suicides for every 100 000 people. And for every suicide that takes place, there are about 20 attempted suicides.According to the World Health Organisation, there are 800,000 suicides a year globally. This is expected to rise to 1.53 million by 2020. About 75% of the world’s suicides take place in low and middle-income countries.The research also shows that men typically have a higher risk than women for completing suicide but more women attempt suicide than men.Our research shows that in South Africa young men are more likely to than ever before to engage in a suicidal behavior because they cannot live up to the expectations placed on them as well as how society views men.Despite decades of research, preventing suicides remain a problem. The main challenge is that suicide prevention programmes are typically bio-medical and focus primarily on identifying people at risk and promoting access to psychiatric care.These approaches are often grounded in the assumption that suicidal behavior is a symptom of psychopathology (mental disorders) and that people who want to die need psychiatric care.But medicalizing suicide ignores the socio-cultural context in which suicides occur. Our research has shown that suicidal behavior has a social, economic and cultural context. And unless these factors are considered alongside psychiatric care, steadily increasing suicide rates will not be curbed.A growing body of research is helping policymakers understand that suicidal behavior – like any other form of human behavior – has a social, economic and cultural context. These situational factors are as many potential precipitants of suicidal desires as are bio-medical and psychiatric factors.Pressures on menOur research suggests that dominant models of masculinity and restrictive gender norms in South Africa have contributed to some young men’s suicidality.The perception, according to our research, is that men have to behave in a certain way: they have to have power, be achievers and be in control. And those who cannot either risk being an “outsider” who is stigmatized or opt for suicide as a viable way out.Interviewed participants saw suicide as a legitimate way for men to deal with conflicted feelings of shame, loss, or vulnerability particularly when these feelings were elicited by the experience of not living up to societal expectations.In South Africa suicide accounts for 9.6% of all unnatural deaths. There is about one suicide every hour. Data suggests that 80% of suicides in South Africa are males and that suicide rates are highest among those between the ages of 15 and 29.Our interviewees indicated that clear and rigid social norms dictated and regulated the behavior of young men in South Africa. They were acutely aware of the perceived gender norms and what the societal expectations were around these. Failure to conform to these norms precipitated feelings of shame and guilt, social exclusion, impotence, and isolation.As a result, suicide was a “logical solution”, allowing these young men to re-empower themselves and escape difficult feelings associated with being isolated or shunned by society.Although they conformed to the dominant ideals of masculinity which make it difficult to access support or express fear, pain, and vulnerability, not conforming liberated them. It meant they were allowed to express emotions and access support.But they were aware that a stance like this would make them socially disconnected and put them at risk of being stigmatized.Our research suggests that these socio-cultural ideas about manhood may prevent young men from accessing care, communicating their distress or forming protective authentic relationships.Socio-cultural factors are not the only factors that contribute to suicide. Ongoing research has highlighted the role of economic factors such as poverty, unemployment, and hunger in the aetiology of suicide. When people experience economic adversity it can lead to feelings of entrapment, hopelessness, and helplessness. This, in turn, gives rise to suicidal thoughts and feelings.The epidemic of peasant farmer suicides in India following crop failures is an example of this.A new approachThere is no substitute for good psychiatric care for people who exhibit symptoms of psychopathology like mood disturbances and psychosis. Accessible, affordable and effective psychiatric care is essential for suicide prevention in these cases.But to make serious advances in suicide prevention, holistic interventions must be developed that move beyond bio-medical and psychiatric explanations of suicidal phenomena.Such approaches might include systemic interventions to address the economic and socio-cultural factors that contribute to suicide. It would also provide effective integrated person-centered care, which includes psycho-social services at a primary health care level and addresses gender norms and attitudes towards suicide and help-seeking.

‘Fake news’ debate at King John’s Castle today

first_imgPrint Email Caption: Emma O’Kelly, RTE’s Education Correspondent, will take part in ‘The Truth in the News? The role of  Quality Journalism in the era of Fake News’ at King John’s Castle this Saturday. RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Previous articleExaminer gives UL journalism students national platformNext articleGardaí investigating fatal road accident at Abbeyfeale Editor Emma O’KellyEmma O’KellyJournalists and PR professionals will launch a blistering attack on ‘fake news’ in King John’s Castle this afternoon.Local and national media and public relations professionals will discuss, ‘The Truth in the News? The role of  Quality Journalism in the era of Fake News’ as part of the National Union of Journalists’ (NUJ) Local News Matters week, which will run in Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England, from March 24 to April 1.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The debate, which will begin at 2.30pm, is presented jointly by the Irish South West branch of the NUJ and the Public Relations Institute of Ireland (PRII), and is hosted by Shannon Heritage and Shannon Group plc.Broadcaster Emma O’Kelly will ask the audience, “How do we, as journalists, combat so-called ‘Fake News’?”The Limerick-born RTE Education Correspondent believes that journalists must ground their work in truth and fact, “not shying away from stories that are difficult or unpopular with the mainstream”, and “by rejecting lazy journalism and cliché.”“I see the growing mistrust of traditional media, and the proliferation of alternative information sources, as a positive challenge to Journalism. If it helps keep us on our toes – and it should – then it’s a good thing,” Emma said ahead of the debate.Another of the panellists, Cian Connaughton, is President of the Public Relations Institute of Ireland (PRII), the representative body for Ireland’s public relations industry, and he believes that education has a big role to play in ensuring people have the skills to filter the information they receive on a daily basis, including ‘fake news’.“Funding of the media is also crucial and quality journalism needs to be paid for,” he said, and adds that “the challenge of ‘fake news’will not be easily won but there are some positive trends.”The public relations profession has a role to play; Cian will tell the audience in King John’s Castle.“The PRII and its members subscribe to rigorous ethical standards around communication, while the behaviour and tactics of Donald Trump’s communications team have rightly been called out by public relations representative bodies as unethical”.Chairing the discussion is Nandi O’Sullivan, Head of Communications with Shannon Group plc who are hosting the debate, which begins at 2pm.Admission is free and members of the media and public relations professionals are welcome to attend, as are the public, however, as numbers are very limited everyone is asked to please reserve a place right away by emailing [email protected] with your name and phone number.

SIGNING DAY: Permian recognizes fine arts students

first_img Facebook Previous articleHIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL: Odessa High sweeps its way past San Angelo CentralNext articlePort Houston Weathers Historic Winter Storm Digital AIM Web Support Pinterest Pinterest PANEL ONE OF FOUR Forty six Permian High School fine arts students participated in a Fine Arts Signing Day event in the Permian High School orchestra room in the J.R. McEntyre Instrumental Building Monday afternoon. In what has become a signature event, Permian High School held its Fine Arts Signing Day in the J.R. McEntyre Instrumental Building on campus.Forty-six students were on hand for the event seated at long tables in a semi-circle ready to sign their intents to attend a variety of universities across Texas and the nation Monday. Some were heading to the military, while many were going to Odessa College and University of Texas Permian Basin.Still others were headed to Texas Tech, Stephen F. Austin, University of North Texas, Abilene Christian University, Angelo State, Lubbock Christian University, West Texas A&M University and University of Oregon.Many of those who recruited the students, music faculty who helped along the way and several top district officials were in attendance for the event.“We are so lucky to have the students we have in fine arts,” said Todd Berridge, head director of PHS orchestras.Kobe Sebolt, a 17-year-old senior, is going to Odessa College on a band scholarship.“I’m probably going to be studying either music or radiology; polar opposites,” Sebolt said.He added that the signing event is a great occasion because students in athletics get lots of attention.“… I feel like fine arts isn’t as appreciated, so I feel like since we get this we should really take advantage of it,” Sebolt said.Tristan Wood, a 17-year-old senior, is heading to University of North Texas where she plans to study environmental science. However, she still plans to be in the choir. “I think it was really fun and it was good to represent our schools and show how often we get signed, especially vs. the athletics and stuff like that,” Wood said.Natalie Berridge, a 17-year-old senior and daughter of Todd Berridge, plans to study computer science at UTPB.“I think it’s cool that the fine arts have equal representation, because a lot of the time people favor athletics over fine arts and it feels good to have people recognize fine arts as a good skill to have,” Natalie Berridge said.David Corman, an adjunct voice professor at UTPB and minister of music and evangelism at First United Methodist Church, was recruiting for UTPB.“It’s an awesome affirmation of the fine arts. They’re an integral part of the core of what should happen at any school. Permian is very fortunate to have a tremendous program in band, orchestra and choir …,” Corman said.He added that he’s looking forward to having the ones signed to UTPB attend.“… I’m super happy to have them,” Corman said.Todd Berridge noted that not all of the signees will be going into fine arts. Some will major in kinesiology, criminal justice, become teachers and study environmental studies.“… They’re the best kids in our orchestras and bands and we want to recognize them for being great, as well,” Todd Berridge said.Todd Berridge noted that there are many benefits to being in fine arts.During the past five years, more than 50 percent of PHS’s top 10 students in all grades are in multiple fine arts.One decade-long study showed that students who took part in at least nine hours of arts education a week were four time more likely than their peers to have won recognition for their academic achievement.In 2018, Todd Berridge said, the Texas Combined, non-musician SAT score was 1020. The All-State Choir score was 1254, the All-State Symphonic Band score was 1363 and the All-State Symphony Orchestra score was 1441, according to the Texas Music Educators Association.“Being in fine arts helps with communication skills,” he said. “It helps with interpersonal skills, because you’ve got to learn how to get along in your section in the ensemble and we can directly equate that to getting along with the work group and getting along with an entire company because they have to accept the results. You get first chair, or you get last chair and those are the results. The business world is results oriented and orchestra, band, choir, theater, art (and) athletics are results oriented, as well.” WhatsApp WhatsApp Local Newscenter_img Twitter Facebook TAGS  By Digital AIM Web Support – February 24, 2021 Twitter SIGNING DAY: Permian recognizes fine arts studentslast_img read more
