Monday 20 December 2010 2:34 am ANGLO-AUSTRALIAN fund management house Henderson Group has confirmed it is negotiating the potential takeover of struggling rival funds firm Gartmore.Gartmore said on Friday it had entered into talks with Henderson on the basis of a proposal priced at “a slight discount” to Gartmore’s closing share price of 98.75p on December 16, valuing the company at £360m. “Henderson’s proposal is conditional. No terms have been agreed and there can be no certainty that a transaction would proceed on the basis set out in Gartmore’s announcement,” the fund manager said.Gartmore announced last month it had appointed bankers to seek a merger or sale after star fund manager Roger Guy announced he was retiring from the company, shortly after the departure of close colleague Guillaume Rambourg.Henderson is no stranger to the acquisition trail, having bought rival New Star Asset Management last year, though talks to buy US boutique RidgeWorth from SunTrust faltered in July.

Oct. 22 — A caravan of thousands of migrants, including small children, traveling to the United States reached the Mexico-Guatemala border on Oct. 19. The caravan had formed on Oct. 13 in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, and arrived in Guatemala a few days later.When the caravan reached the bridge that connects the Guatemalan city of Tecun Uman to Ciudad Hidalgo in Mexico, immigration authorities refused to let it pass as a group and demanded each person enter alone and register with the authorities.Refusing to be divided, the caravan members managed to break through the barricade onto Mexican soil, where riot police met them with tear gas and beatings. Nevertheless, the people in the caravan courageously made it across the border and are marching northward, as of Oct. 22.Imperialism and migrationRecent years have seen a huge influx in migration from Central America’s Northern Triangle (Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador) to the U.S. What has led so many thousands of people to make the difficult decision to uproot their lives and risk death to travel through Mexico to the U.S.?One migrant interviewed as the caravan passed through Guatemala described conditions in Honduras: “What’s hard is waking up in the morning and your child says he’s hungry and you start counting lempiras [the currency of Honduras], while the big companies are throwing away food. What’s even sadder is going to the clinic at night to find them closed because there’s no acetaminophen. When we pay taxes, when those who work can’t even afford transportation, because when gas prices go up, transportation prices go up.” (Quote posted on Twitter by plazapublica.com.gt)Extreme poverty and violence in Central America are the result of over a century of coups, civil wars and military interventions, all aimed at securing the region for U.S. business interests such as the former United Fruit Co. — now Chiquita Brands. And the pro-U.S. governments violently repress any attempt by the workers and peasants to organize so as to keep labor cheap and profits high.In 2009, a military coup ousted the progressive, anti-imperialist-oriented government of Manuel Zelaya, over claims he violated the Honduran Constitution by seeking a referendum to allow him to run for a second term. While the U.S. government in public said it opposed the coup, it continued relations with the new government and refused to call for Zelaya’s restoration as president.The country has since been run by right-wing governments accused of killing activists and journalists. Current President Juan Orlando Hernández actually changed the constitution in 2017 to allow him to be elected to a second term — an election accompanied by widespread fraud.Mass mobilizations denounced the fraud and were met with state violence and martial law. Extreme repression and exploitation continue today with the backing of U.S. government and corporate interests.Migrants in the caravan have directly cited the Honduran government’s anti-worker, pro-transnational policies as the cause of their suffering.U.S. exports ‘border security’Migrants traveling from Central America don’t feel the effects of U.S. imperialism just in their home countries. As with the current caravan, when they reached the border with Mexico, which they had to cross to reach the U.S., Mexican security forces tried to stop them with teargas but were finally overwhelmed.Under pressure from the U.S. to stop the caravan, the Mexican government sent federal soldiers to its southern border. This continues a steady trend of the U.S. exporting its own racist border-control policies to Mexico.Trump has threatened to cut aid to Central American governments if they do not find a “solution” to the crisis. Meanwhile, Trump has made calls to send the National Guard and U.S. military to the U.S.-Mexico border.U.S. imperialism created the migrant crisis through its exploitation of Mexico and Central America and has effectively declared war on migrants inside its borders. Now, the Trump administration has threatened to close the border, an act that signals his willingness to escalate the crisis into open military conflict.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Their role in how we address the climate and biodiversity challenges we face has never been more crucial.” Minister Ryan explained. This substantial increase in supports to the @IrishEnvNet couldn’t be more timely. They play a crucial role in the fight against climate change. I’ve worked with the IEN members for many years & will continue to listen, learn, & collaborate with our eNGOs in my role as Minister. pic.twitter.com/gF3yteBCQ3— Eamon Ryan (@EamonRyan) January 21, 2021The Irish Environmental Network, established in 2002, is composed of over 30 environmental NGOs and over 35,000 volunteers whose aim is to support “the principles of environmental, social and economic sustainability”.

Tagged: brian burns, election 2020, elizabeth garry, Matt Butler, new york, sixth judicial district, state supreme court TOMPKINS COUNTY, N.Y.—Judge Elizabeth Garry and Judge Brian Burns are two names that might not be very familiar to Tompkins County voters, though both are vying for seats on the bench of the New York State Supreme Court’s 6th Judicial District. The court’s jurisdiction covers 10 counties, including Tompkins County.The race is the least competitive of all in this election cycle. While Garry, running on the Democrat and Independence party lines, and Burns, running as a Republican, are from different parties, they are essentially running unopposed since there are two spots open on the bench. The positions are also meant to be non-partisan. Regardless, voters will still see the race on the ballot and have a chance to vote for both, either or neither of the candidates.Garry is looking to retain her bench spot, having originally been elected in 2006 and serving as a trial judge for five of the 10 counties in the district. She was then promoted to the Appellate Division in 2007 and in 2018 was named the presiding justice by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, meaning she supervises the entire division’s operations, including admitting new attorneys and overseeing training programs for attorneys. With her term expiring, she is vying for another 14 year term with the New York Supreme Court 6th Judicial District.Judge Elizabeth Garry (Photo from her website) Matt Butler Your government news is made possible with support from: Before being elected to the supreme court, Garry was the Town Justice in New Berlin for five years, and before that she spent over a decade in private practice at the Joyce Law Firm in Sherburne, NY. Garry graduated from Alfred University in 1984 and then went to Albany Law School for her law degree. Reached by phone, Garry declined an interview because she is running unopposed.Burns, on the other hand, was selected by the 6th District Republican Judicial Committee in August to replace former Supreme Court Justice Michael Coccoma. Burns was nearly finished with his second 10 year term as a judge in Otsego County when he was nominated for the state Supreme Court position, and subsequently withdrew his name for a third term on the Otsego County bench.Though Burns did not respond to inquiries for comment, there is information available about his educational background and work experience before becoming a judge in 2001. Burns graduated from Syracuse University in 1985 and obtained his law degree from Suffolk University Law School six years later.Nearly all of his legal experience has come in Otsego County. He started his career in the Otsego County District Attorney’s Office as the chief assistant district attorney and acting district attorney starting in 1992, then worked as a city prosecutor for the City of Oneonta from 1993 to 1997. Subsequent to that, he was employed as a school attorney for the Otsego Northern Catskill BOCES, beginning in 1998 and lasting until he was elected to the bench of the Otsego County Court.Burns’ website specifically cites his work with drug offenders, as he oversaw the Otsego Coutny Drug Treatment Court and was elected to serve on the New York Association of Drug Treatment Court Professionals Board of Directors and belongs to the National Association of Drug Treatment Courts.
