Soros moved swathes of his fortune into gold companies over the last three months, as the man who bet against the Bank of England sold off more than 95 per cent of his stocks in bellwether firms JP Morgan, Wal-Mart and Verizon. Soros Fund Management’s largest holding is now in a gold exchange traded fund, making up around 13 per cent of its equity portfolio, worth some $638m. Soros is also likely to have moved money from equities into government bonds, but the US Securities and Exchange Commission only asks for disclosure of activity in equities. The shift took place in a quarter when the Standard & Poor’s equities index fell 12 per cent.

Stride hits out at ‘excessive and disproportionate’ fine

first_img Regions: UK & Ireland Topics: Finance Legal & compliance Tags: Online Gambling Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Stride Gaming has branded a £7.1m (€8.2m/$9.2m) fine for its Daub Alderney subsidiary as “excessive and disproportionate”.The operator has called on the UK Gambling Commission to lower the penalty, which was issued for serious failings in Daub’s anti-money laundering and player protection controls, to £4m.Gambling Commission officials noted that issues related to the identification of anti-money laundering risk, such as payment details not matching the customer and duplicate accounts, were not fit for purpose.This in turn meant that Daub was unable to identify customers with potential gambling problems, such as previously-excluded individuals using new accounts or different payment cards to continue playing.The company’s own audit found that it had insufficient source of funds (SOF) data on more than 700 account holders who had deposited more than £50,000.In September Stride said it had set aside £4m as it was expecting to be hit with a “significant financial penalty” for past business practices of one of its subsidiaries.However, with the fine issued significantly higher than expected, Stride is now calling on the Commission to reconsider its decision, while at the same time ruling out appealing against the findings or penalty.Stride said it has addressed all of the failings identified by the Commission “in full” and also assessed the controls framework required to meet its licence conditions and codes of practice.The company added that Deloitte LLP has carried out an independent review of these processes and will now also conduct biennial control audits to assess the operating effectiveness of those controlsNon-executive chairman Nigel Payne accused the UKGC of having presented “certain factual inaccuracies” to the regulatory panel in the course of its investigation. This, Payne argued, had “coloured” the size of the fine that was ultimately issued.“We are of the view that both the industry and its regulator must be as one in its combined attempt to better regulate the industry and accordingly, we will be seeking to engage with the UKGC to improve the robustness of the process that we have just been through,” he added.

What is the Best Pizza Chain?

first_img Why did Cici’s Pizza leave Apopka? I miss the pizza buffet, even with the kid’s birthday parties, and sports teams, and church people in mass. There were so many pizzas to choose from, and the salad, soup, and apple dessert and cinnamon buns. I liked the spinach pizza and the bar-b-q pizza. Cici’s Pizza in Eustis closed, and the one in Longwood on 434. The only one that I know that is still open is Orange City. Bummer…….and I don’t get over to that area too often.

The Aperture House is a home for a growing family that connects the comfort of a private dwelling with uninterrupted views of the Sydney city skyline, encompassed within a quiet neighbourhood. Part of the conceptual framework for the Willoughby residence grew from our relationship with the client and his work as an industrial designer. The notion of object making allowed us to work with shapes and geometry and introduced patterns and repetition to the design through shifting light, shadows & distinct geometric finishes.Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanUpon entering the house light streams through the skylights, floating ceilings and unique geometric windows. The aperture of the circle played a significant role within the design, being used on a large scale to frame the foliage scattered sky. This was then repeated on a micro scale through a mesh balustrade. Both creating a unique play of light as the sun moves throughout the day.Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanThe idea of the aperture came in to play again through the architecture of the split levels, constantly creating vistas and views through the home. Standing at the front door you can catch a glimpse all the way through to the children playing in the backyard. The screening between the mezzanine rumpus to the ground floor entertainment areas – a nod to Mashrabiya latticework from middle eastern homes – here suggestive of children observing parties, maintaining connectivity through the space both physically and emotionally.Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanBeyond a home accommodating the needs of the family they experience a joy in the details.

A casa projetada por Daniel Fromer destaca-se pela reverência pelo entorno, em meio à vegetação nativa à beira mar. Com um portfólio de projetos que conectam técnicas artesanais muitas vezes pouco conhecidas a soluções racionais e simples, o arquiteto recebeu a encomenda de criar um local para abrigar uma família que chega a sua terceira geração rodeada de amigos. Conjugar momentos em grupo e privacidade era um dos desafios iniciais do projeto, previsto para ocupar uma área de preservação ambiental e desova de tartarugas. Assim, em torno da casa maior, Fromer ergueuThe house designed by Daniel Fromer stands out for its reverence for its surroundings, amidst native vegetation by the beach. With a portfolio of designs that connect often little-known craft techniques to rational and simple solutions, the architect was commissioned to create a place to house a family that reaches its third generation surrounded by friends. Combining group moments and privacy was one of the project’s initial challenges, set to occupy an area of environmental preservation and turtle spawning. So around the larger house Fromer erected three independent units and a room for housekeepers and other staff. In the central building, everyone can meet for meals by the big wooden table and the generous ‘varanda’ facing the pool. “There is coexistence, but also privacy for family and guests,” explains the architect.três unidades independentes e um cômodo para a estada de caseiros e demais funcionários. Na construção central, todos podem se encontrar para as refeições feitas junto da enorme mesa de madeira e na generosa varanda em frente a piscina. “Tem-se convivência, mas também privacidade para os familiares e convidados”, explica o arquiteto. Save this picture!© Evelyn MüllerIn addition to respecting the local architecture, the use of wooden shingles favors air circulation while minimizing the need for air conditioning. At the same time it completely blocks the rain from entering. Recaimed wood (peroba and ipê) make up most of the raw material used in the work: the steps and cladding are peroba; the deck, ipe. The few non-reclaimed parts have sustainability certification, such as the sliding door frames, designed by the architect.Save this picture!© Evelyn MüllerSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Evelyn MüllerThe large openings allow the house to remain completely open and closed – and without losing anything of the idyllic landscapes of Bahia beach.

‘It’s now or never’ — We must free Mumia!

first_imgThese slightly edited comments were given during the March 18 Workers World Party webinar, “Mumia Abu-Jamal: The Only Treatment is His Freedom!” A quarter of a century ago, in the summer of 1995, Mumia was facing an execution date. That date was Aug. 17, [the birthday of Black Nationalist leader, Marcus Garvey]. We had one mission — for the movement to stop the execution. And through mass mobilization, through a lot of unity and a lot of coordination, we helped stop that execution. We did it.Larry HolmesSince then, it’s been a long quarter of a century, almost 26 years. We have raised a bold, never ending, sometimes frustrating and disheartening struggle to free comrade Mumia, our political prisoner in jail, who was almost killed fighting for the freedom of the Black nation.Now we face a similar situation in my view as one we faced in 1995, when there was an execution date for Mumia on the calendar.We have to get him out of prison, comrades, and it must be now! There can be no hesitations. There can be no waiting. His health is such that Mumia’s birthday, about a month from this weekend [April 24] will probably be his last if we do not free him.That says it all; that explains the critical moment that we’re in. Mumia must not be left to die in a dungeon. It’s what the police want. It’s what the Fraternal Order of Police wants. It’s what the oppressor wants. They wanted to execute him; they didn’t get that [in 1995]. So they stole 40 years of his life. Now, we must deny them the final victory of watching Mumia die in the dungeon.‘By any means necessary’Now, comrades, we have to do whatever is necessary, as Malcolm said, “by any means necessary,” to wake up the movement. A lot of good people, a lot of good leaders have come to Mumia’s support over the years, but they’re busy. They may not know about Mumia’s health.In this era of social media, we are bombarded with information. So we have to somehow blow away all that information that many of the forces around the world are bombarded with, to make it clear to them that right now we face another life-and-death moment.We especially must wake up the Black movement. And I’m talking about all the wings of the Black movement — the militant Black Liberation fighters of every generation from Black Lives Matter to those of us who are the veterans of the struggles of many decades ago, when we had the Black Panthers and all the other forces that led us to where we are now. This includes the ministers, the civil rights forces, the leaders — many of whom are still alive. We’ve got to get them on board and make them realize that we’ve all got to realize that this is the time to act.We are running out of time, comrades, so we’ve got to devise a plan. Part of that plan is already in motion. Many of you are working on the events that will take place, mass events, mostly in Philadelphia, around the birthday of Mumia near the end of April. We’ve got to come up with a strategy that brings all these forces together, not just in Philadelphia, but all around the country and all about the world with a conviction and a dedication to free Mumia.Mumia is our hero, comrades. He’s one of our icons. He’s the most renowned political prisoner of the Black Liberation struggle in the world. This is not to take anything away from Imam Jamil Al-Amin, Mutulu Shakur, Ruchell Cinque Magee and all the other prisoners, political prisoners.Look at it this way. How can we possibly free these comrades, if we cannot free Mumia now, when his life is at risk behind those bars? The chances of him dying in prison are 100 times greater than if we can free him. And he may have an opportunity to have a little bit of what’s left of his natural life. We’ve got to make it clear.This is the moment to everybody who is responsible — politicians, governors, prosecutors, the Democratic Party — that if Mumia dies in prison, if you allow him to die in a dungeon, then this will be an unforgivable insult to the Black freedom movement. And anyone who is complicit in this, you will share this blame, this responsibility and consequences, and you will take them to your grave.If we reach out to others, we must get them to understand this–that Mumia will walk out of that prison or, if necessary, be rolled out in a wheelchair free, and not die behind bars. That’s our revolutionary mission. At the moment, I can’t think of anything more important than that.Mumia: more than a political prisonerThe struggle to free Mumia is in one way or another linked to consciousness about all the other political prisoners, because of his unique status as an international political prisoner in the struggle against white supremacy, racism, capitalism and imperialism in this country. This is how he’s known all around the world.A little more than 20 years ago, I was privileged to share the stage with the late Ossie Davis, the actor, along with his partner, Ruby Dee. Ossie Davis told a large crowd of thousands of people in Madison Square Garden Theater in May of 2000, the millennium, that it was the mission of young radicals to free Mumia.  A lot of those young people he was speaking to then are now middle age.Mumia may be more renowned because he is a political prisoner, because of the circumstances around being framed up and the fact that they did it because they were afraid of him, and they wanted to silence him.But Mumia’s more than a political prisoner. To know Mumia, to have read not all of his works, but even just a few of them, is to have insight into his revolutionary brilliance, his intellectual insight. He’s a Black working-class, revolutionary intellectual. Mumia is a Black leader. He’s a bona fide global Black leader. I look at this from the point of view of history.At this moment we face the prospect of Mumia expiring behind bars, and we realize that we must act now. We must look at it historically, because it will be remembered what was done, what was not done, who did it, who was unconscious, what was their excuse? And, of course, what the enemy did and how the enemy responded.I truly believe, comrades, that after all this time — and many of us have been involved in the struggle for many decades now — I first met Mumia in 1996 — that we must be prepared to bust a move to take it to another level, to be prepared to make sacrifices, sacrifices that I can’t even speculate about or imagine.If we get the seriousness of the moment, I believe we will all be called upon, no matter what we’re doing–and it’s all important business in the revolutionary struggle–to make some sacrifices now. Because it’s an old cliche, but it was never truer: For Mumia, it’s now or never.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
