Apple used software that meant only music bought from iTunes could be played the company’s devices. The $1bn lawsuit is in jeopardy because two of the plaintiffs might not have bought the iPod models the case is focused on.Apple lawyers examined the iPod serial number of one of the plaintiffs’ iPod Touch and found that it was bought in July 2009, after the period when Apple was accused of poor practices. The same was true of a second plaintiff.Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers said:I am concerned that I don’t have a plaintiff. That’s a problem.The judge strongly suggested submitting filings for how the case should proceed. “I’m not interested in waiting” he said.Apple’s opponents argue this meant it could hike iPod prices and are looking for $350m in damages. However, this sum could be tripled under US anti-trust legislation.The case now hangs in the balance and could soon be ended after 10 years of struggle. Last week Apple became the first company ever to be valued at $700bn (£447m) Tags: Apple whatsapp Apple antitrust case on brink of collapse last_img read more

News / Outbreak of friendlier talks sees today’s BA strike called off – for now

first_imgDuring the last strike, in December, BA switched some of its handling to its minority-owned British Airways Regional Cargo facility, operated by WFS.Forwarders have struggled with handling at Heathrow in recent months at a variety of facilities, including IAG’s. The current Covid epidemic in the south of England has caused staff shortages, delaying freight handling.UK shippers and forwarders are currently heavily reliant on British Airways, as many are trying to avoid shipments passing through the EU.One told The Loadstar Virgin Atlantic’s network was not broad enough and that UK freighter operator Cargologicair’s operations were too inconsistent. He also noted that the fledgling airline had approached his client for direct sales. An outbreak of improved negotiations between British Airways and its cargo staff’s union has led to a postponement of strike action due to start this morning.Unite has agreed to suspend the industrial action for three days, while both sides seek a resolution.The strike is now set to start at 2am on 29 January if they can’t agree, and will last until 2am on 8 February, with staff striking every other day and every other night.Unite claims the firm’s ‘fire and rehire’ strategy could see members lose between £6,000 and £8,000 a year – some 20-25% – in pay and conditions. BA claims its proposal would see half the staff receive a pay rise, while no one would lose more than 10%.

Kim Jong Eun Rising Prefix Ladder

first_img AvatarLee Seok Young News News RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR SHARE Facebook Twitter North Korea is currently using the prefix ‘respected Comrade General’ to describe successor Kim Jong Eun. The new, elevated name was used in an internal Chosun People’s Army document received by The Daily NK on November 10th.One defector who held a senior post in North Korea before escaping earlier this year told Daily NK, “The title of ‘youthful Young General’ was used in internal Party documents from 2008, and from 2010 the word ‘respected’ was first added by the military authorities.”On October 17, Chosun Central TV used the phrase “respected Comrade General Kim Jong Eun” while reporting on a visit to Yongseong Machinery Complex in Hamheung, seemingly reflecting a commemorative plaque with the same caption positioned above a door there. This report may have triggered the nationwide use of Kim’s new official title.North Korea currently uses the prefix ‘Great’ for Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il, while Kim Jong Il also receives the second prefix of ‘Dear’.According to defectors and experts on North Korea, the prefix ‘respected’ was given to Kim Jong Il in 1973. Still a year before he was identified as the successor, Kim, who was at the time both the KWP Central Committee point man for guidance and propaganda, was referred to internally as ‘respected superior’.In 1974, the year Kim Jong Il officially became the successor, the term ‘Dear Leader’ was first used in an essay, supposedly written by Kim Jong Il himself, entitled ‘On the Number of Tasks Facing Party Ideological Operations for the Spreading of Kim-il-sungism in Society.’At that time, Rodong Shinmun was using the term ‘Party Center’ as a euphemism, but from that point on the term ‘Dear’ was used when invoking praise for the successor alongside the word “respected”.The titles ‘great General’ and ‘Supreme Leader’ began then to be used officially after Kim Jong Il rose to the position of Supreme Commander of the Chosun People’s Army in 1991. Kim Jong Suk, Kim Jong Il’s mother and still praised alongside Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il as one of the ‘Three Mt. Baekdu Generals’, is also referred to as ‘Respected’.Despite his elevated nomenclature, it nevertheless appears likely that Kim Jong Eun will have to wait until he has risen to the position of Supreme Leader and has complete control over the army before he can be called ‘Dear’. When he made his first public address at the Party Delegates’ Conference in September, his titles were simply ‘Vice-Chairman of the Chosun Workers’ Party Central Military Committee’ and ‘General of the Chosun People’s Army’.However, it does appear that the younger Kim is already effectively wielding power over the military. In the seized military document there is a reference to “the People’s Army, which is under the direct instruction of the Respected Comrade General.”The document further says that “It is necessary to establish a strong system of discipline whereby all issues that emerge within the operations of the People’s Army are reported as is to the Respected Comrade General, and operations thereby executed in line with his decisions.” News center_img North Korea Market Price Update: June 8, 2021 (Rice and USD Exchange Rate Only) There are signs that North Korea is running into serious difficulties with its corn harvest NewsEconomy By Lee Seok Young – 2011.12.05 9:07am US dollar and Chinese reminbi plummet against North Korean won once again Kim Jong Eun Rising Prefix Ladderlast_img read more

Australian regulators concerned about industry culture

first_img Related news New bill will give greater penalty powers to ASIC “The trust and confidence of investors and financial consumers have been significantly eroded over the past few years due to poor conduct within the financial industry,” the report says. It cites “the provision of poor advice,” the mis-selling of financial products and suspected financial benchmark and foreign exchange manipulation. Looking ahead, the integrity of financial market benchmarks remains a high priority, as do disclosure obligations and market abuse, the report notes. Additionally, an ongoing project “to lift the standards of major financial advice providers” remains a high priority for the foreseeable future, the report says. Under, the ASIC Wealth Management Project — which was established in October 2014 to boost standards, enhance the quality of advice, and improve remediation to clients who have suffered losses as a result of poor advice — the report notes the ASIC is conducting “a significant number of investigations and risk-based surveillances targeting a range of misconduct.” These include compliance with reforms that banned commissions and imposed a “best interests” duty, among other things. The project has resulted in the banning of 12 advisors, among other sanctions. “The project will continue its investigations and surveillance in pursuing a range of regulatory outcomes,” the report says. “ASIC does everything in its power to detect and take action against those who break the law, to ensure consumers can have trust and confidence in our financial markets and financial services industry. This report highlights our strong recent enforcement record and ongoing areas of focus,” says ASIC commissioner Greg Tanzer, in an announcement about the report’s release. The provision of poor advice to retail investors, and compliance with reforms that banned conflicted compensation structures and imposed higher conduct standards, remain key concerns for regulators in Australia. The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) on Wednesday issued a review of its enforcement activity over the second half of 2015. Regulators are continuing to focus on improving the culture in the financial services industry, among other issues, according to the report.

Lifeline for vulnerable Cambodians as poverty doubles during COVID-19 pandemic

first_imgLifeline for vulnerable Cambodians as poverty doubles during COVID-19 pandemic The United NationsIn Cambodia, the shrinking economy, hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, has affected all population groups, but particularly the most vulnerable. A first-of-its-kind government scheme, managed with digital tools supplied by the UN Development Programme (UNDP), is ensuring that the poorest receive a level of social protection.The government-issued IDPoor card has been providing Yom Malai, a 42-year-old single mother of four children living in the Battambang province of Cambodia, with a lifeline since May 2020. With the card, she is entitled to 176,000 riels (around $43.45) per month, to support herself and her family, using most of it to buy dry food ingredients and rice, products with a longer shelf life, that can be rationed throughout the month.“We collect the money from a money transfer service”, she says. “During the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been a great help for my family. In addition, if we ever need to go to the hospital, we get medical treatment, care and medicine free of charge”.No cash, cards onlyAs a result of the pandemic, poverty is forecast to almost double in Cambodia: the UN estimating that it could reach around 17.6 per cent of the population. With these stark predictions in mind, the government, alongside partners which include UNDP and the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), decided to strengthen the level of social protection in the country. The UN’s research indicated that an emergency social protection program would significantly improve both economic growth and the well-being of the most vulnerable.The UN agencies, and other partners, focused on supporting the new “Cash Transfer Programme for Poor and Vulnerable Households”, by providing the digital tools needed to make it work smoothly and efficiently, and ensure that almost 700,000 people listed on the scheme’s database receive funds in a cashless form, either through their phone or, like Ms. Yom, via a card. A Cambodian woman is registered for the IDPoor card. With support from the Government of Australia, UNDP supplied Cambodian Ministry of Planning employees around 1,700 tablet computers, and software, which allowed them to quickly register families that had recently fallen into poverty as a result of the economic slowdown.“The Government of Australia and UNDP have provided these tablet computers to the Ministry of Planning so that all those registered as poor can receive a cash transfer”, says Nick Beresford, UNDP Cambodia’s Resident Representative. “This expands the UN’s work in social protection and helping the Royal Government of Cambodia build a robust and fully digital IDPoor Programme”.In Ms. Yom’s village, many households received the IDPoor card. “The officials registered our names in an electronic system so that everyone gets what they are entitled to”, she says, adding that each family first went through an interview process with local officials. Nick Beresford (left), UNDP Cambodia’s Resident Representative, visits a community which is benefiting from cash transfers. Under the programme, each eligible and registered household receives either $20 or $30 a month, as a basic benefit. In addition, the household receives top-up amounts for members of vulnerable groups including pregnant women, children under 2, the elderly, people with disabilities and people living with HIV.My family is classified as a level 1 poor household because I am a widow with four children. However, some poor households are struggling but, as their living standards are not as difficult, they are classified as level 2 poor households”, says Ms. Yom.As well as supporting this emergency cash transfer programme, the UN is supporting the Cambodian Government in other ways. These include procuring critical medical equipment, ranging from bio-hazardous waste bags to ventilators and ambulances, and providing technical support to the Planning Ministry, by producing COVID-19 related communications and awareness raising materials. /UN News Release.

Air New Zealand soars into Hobart

first_imgAir New Zealand soars into Hobart Peter Gutwein,PremierFor the first time in over 20 years, Tasmania will welcome direct flights from across the Tasman with Air New Zealand to introduce a new direct flight service between Auckland and Hobart.We’ve reached an agreement with Air New Zealand for a new twice-weekly service which will fly on Thursday and Sundays and is due to begin around Anzac Day, with the possibility of a third flight as demand increases.Yesterday I met with the Hobart International Airport who advised that it will be ready to accept the flights with their terminal work nearing completion. I also want to acknowledge the Australian Government who will stand up the Australian Border Force arrangements to be in place for the commencement of the new flights.The introduction of this new international service into Tasmania is great news for our community and our tourism industry as it will bring more visitors to our shores who are keen to spend, as well as opening up new areas for Tasmanians keen to travel.Tasmania welcomed 25,000 visitors per year from New Zealand prior to COVID-19, so we only expect this to increase without the requirement to transit via the mainland.Tasmania has some of the best tourism experiences in the world, and I’m sure New Zealanders will be very keen to fly directly here, travel around the State and see what we have to offer.Tourism Tasmania has also been raising awareness of Tasmania as a unique and safe holiday destination in New Zealand through the Come Down for Air marketing campaign since January 2021.Flights will become available for booking in coming days, and I look forward to welcoming the first flight from Auckland into Hobart International Airport when it arrives.I will also be writing to the New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Adern to invite her to visit our beautiful state, the jewel in the crown of Australian destinations, at the earliest opportunity. /Public Release.

CU-Boulder Employees, Students Fulfilled By Voices For Children

first_img Published: April 22, 1998 Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail In 1989, CU-Boulder Professor Richard Noble decided it was time to begin sharing part of his life working with people in need and began searching for a group that could use his skills. When told that Voices For Children Inc. — a Boulder advocacy group for abused and neglected children — provided fulfilling challenges for qualified volunteers, Noble made up his mind. He went through a 30-hour training session with the nonprofit organization’s supervisors and became a Court Appointed Special Advocate, or CASA, for unfortunate kids trapped in the Maelstrom of the justice system. As co-director of the College of Engineering and Applied Science’s Center for Separations Using Thin Films and one of the university’s top teachers, Noble is known for being open, straightforward and an innovative problem-solver. Recognizing his skills, CASA administrators immediately assigned him to a high-profile court case that involved a group of brothers and sisters who had been sexually and physically abused by their parents and another adult couple over the course of several years. The case, which lasted several years, concluded with the four adults being incarcerated for their crimes. Noble, a CASA for one of the children, supervised family visits, worked closely with the child’s court-appointed attorney, social services workers and child psychologists, attended court hearings on behalf of the child, and filed monthly progress reports. “Life can be really hard, especially for these kids,” says Noble, who also took the child out for occasional recreational activities. “They’ve seen it all, and it hasn’t been a Walt Disney life for them. It’s rare to see positive changes in the kids on a monthly basis, but usually over longer periods you can see that things are starting to get better. That’s the hope.” In 1995, Noble was selected to receive the Bank One Colorado Corporation 1994-95 Faculty Community Service Award for exceptional humanitarian and civil service. He selflessly plowed the accompanying $2,500 cash award from an endowment made by Bank One Colorado Corp. through the CU Foundation back into the Voices For Children program. Noble now sits on the 16-member Voices For Children board of directors, a group that includes attorneys, child psychologists, education experts and health care professionals. “Everybody on the board feels very strongly about helping kids,” said the chemical engineering professor. “This is not a country-club charity group. We try to be proactive at every turn.” Marsha Caplan, executive director of Voices for Children, said the number of CASA volunteers ranges from about 75 to 100 at any given time. Each case lasts an average of 18 months and CASAs are expected to devote about 10 to 12 hours a month toward the welfare of their court-appointed child. Training sessions are held each fall for about two dozen new qualified CASAs, said Caplan. She called those selected as CASA volunteers “a dedicated group of people, the cream of the crop.” “We have volunteers ranging in age from 21 into their 70s, including homemakers, construction workers and professionals,” said Caplan, noting some CU-Boulder graduate and law students participate. “I think some of these people just wake up one day and decide it’s time to do something worthwhile for the community by helping children in need.” Fran Ritz, a systems analyst in CU-Boulder’s Administrative Streamlining Project, was accepted into the CASA program in 1997. “I just got to a place in my life where I wanted to give something back,” said Ritz. Ritz’s first assignment was being the CASA for an 18-month-old child that had been removed from her pregnant mother’s home because of neglect and placed in a foster home. At first, Ritz spent up to 20 hours a month facilitating visits between the mother, father and child, noting progress, attending court hearings, writing monthly reports and occasionally taking the mother and child to breakfast or to a park. The purpose of the outings between the mother and child (and with both children after the second baby was born) was to observe their interactions outside of supervised visits. She also provided advice to the mother about child care and ways she might improve her situation. “I tried to let her know that I really did care about her and the kids,” said Ritz. Ritz also talked frequently with the case worker and attended meetings in which everyone working on the case discussed information and made decisions on how best to support the children and parents. Unfortunately, the mother abruptly skipped town with both children. And although it may seem like a tragedy that a mother heading a family in crisis appears to have rejected all attempts at help, Ritz is more optimistic. “We were told not to allow ourselves to be attached to the results of the cases but to know that our caring and giving time are enough,” said Ritz. “Although the mother was not able to get her act together, we hopefully had a positive influence on her life by saying or doing useful things and showing her there are people out there who care. “Our primary charge is to watch out for the children, and we know that the oldest child got a lot of love and affection from everyone involved in the case, especially from the foster parents. And I know that any love and affection received by a young child has positive effects.” Voices For Children has plans for several pilot projects, including a parental education effort in conjunction with other county agencies to see if family situations resulting in neglected or abused children can be prevented. “We are strongly supported by the community,” said Caplan, who noted the organization periodically holds fund-raising events to support its cause. “And we plan to continue on our path, working in the best interests of these children.” For more information about Voices for Children, contact Caplan or Judy Walker at 440-7059.last_img read more
