first_img CHURCHES HAVE A CHOICE TO REGISTER SAYS FSC COMPLIANCE Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 14 Jan 2015 – Information coming yesterday on how much the Churches will have to pay the government and the FSC in order to be compliant with a new law by February 20th; the Financial Services Commission of the TCI has been appointed in the Supervisor of Non Profit Organizations or NPOs. Paul Coleman, leader of the Compliance Unit in the FSC says he was not chairing that meeting but attending with Compliance Officer, Melissa Thomas as they aimed to bring even more clarity to the Providenciales Ministerial Fellowship on Monday. Magnetic Media reported that some churches reported to us that the cost to comply could run up to $1,500; in our report it is explained this would be all costs including lawyers’ fees. In December it was Gazetted that the new law which requires all NPOs to be registered and to report on their financials every year takes effect in 90 days; the deadline is February 20, 2015. The FSC sent us a break down of the charges. First a church may have to make some changes in the organization’s description, legally. If the church wants to do that, because apparently they can chose not to, the next course of action is for them to make a request to change with the Registrar of Companies. That alteration will cost $200. There is a one-time registration fee with the FSC as an NPO of $150; there are two annual fees; one paid to the FSC as the Supervisor of NPOs for $100, the other paid to the Registrar of Companies and that amount is $150 – both are for the same thing, to file the annual returns of the NPO. When we add it all up, that could mean an upfront $600 for the FSC and the TCI Government. When legal fees which could run upward of $700 are added to the mix – a church or any non-profit organization may pay in in this first year up to $1,500.

first_imgMeghan MarkleGetty ImagesMeghan Markle and Prince Harry are known for decisions that raise eyebrows. But apparently, none was more shocking than choosing a name for their son.It is known that Meghan, Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry welcomed their new royal baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor this May, just under a year after their stunning royal wedding. It is no surprise that Meghan and Harry broke from royal tradition and chose an unconventional name for the Royal baby.His name Archie is also a shortened version – for Archibald – which is unheard of for other royal names.Although his father goes by the name Harry, his given name is actually Henry. Instead of giving Henry or Harry as a middle name, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex chose Harrison as a patronymic, or name derived from one’s father.  Meghan MarkleGetty ImagesNow Meghan Markle has made waves ever since she joined the Royal Family, she has asserted her independence and tried to forge her own path as a Royal. Baby Archie’s name was also one such move to assert her independence. The couple Sussex, especially Meghan has butted heads with the Royal Palace for her decision.

The Duchess of Sussex may finally be listening. She started off by celebrating her birthday without much pomp or ceremony, unlike her baby shower in New York. Meghan Markle may be turning over a new leaf as a Royal after all.last_img read more

Texas Republicans Criticize Trumps Tariff Plan

first_imgRyan Poppe/Texas Public RadioSen. Cornyn addresses the Senate on Oct. 10, chastising the president and Democrats for stalling bills to open portions of the federal government.Texas’ leading senator in Washington D.C. echoes the worries of other Texas Republicans that President Trump’s plan to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum would be bad for the U.S. economy and ultimately spark a trade war.Texas Senator John Cornyn is asking President Trump to reconsider his administration’s plan to place a 25-percent tariff on all steel imports and a 10-percent tariff on all aluminum products.“As you can tell, there’s a lot of controversy surrounding the issue of trade. The president has made a number of campaign promises, which he is determined to deliver on, and I’m afraid some of the people he’s listening to are giving him some bad advice. That’s why it’s important for Congress to step up and have hearings,” Cornyn said.U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz has also said he hopes the president’s plan never comes to fruition.The senators aren’t alone. More than 100 House Republicans signed a letter written by Houston Republican Kevin Brady, chair of the U.S. House Ways and Means Committee that urged the president to tailor the tariffs so U.S. companies can keep trading with their foreign partners.

IntelMcAfee preview new rootkit weapon

first_img Unlike installed anti-virus software, the new layer of protection will sit below a PC’s operating system, to detect modifications attempted by hidden malware, according to George Kurtz, McAfee’s CTO and executive vice-president. In sitting outside the operating system, the new software approach uses Intel’s “chip-level hooks” to look for the presence of malicious software such as rootkits.According to McAfee Labs, more than 1200 new rootkits are detected every day around the world, or 50 per hour every day. This is a security burden because of their ability to load and embed themselves at the kernel level of the operating system and they are difficult to spot. McAfee spokesmen said DeepSAFE veers from those current approaches that are actually based on “20+ year old techniques.”The technologies are becoming increasingly less effective, and “novel approaches are needed to effectively manage the increase in malware and other attacks.”DeepSAFE is designed to detect and block suspicious behaviors that are characteristic of many of those rootkits in real-time before they have a chance to spread.The future of security technology is going to have to move beyond the operating system, says a McAfee video presentation, in no uncertain terms, and should not be bound by the same OS rules as today, because rootkits are designed to hide themselves away from the OS. DeepSAFE is in beta. Products employing DeepSAFE technology are expected later this year. DeepSAFE is designed to work with Windows 7; McAfee anticipates DeepSAFE will work with Windows 8 on its release; McAfee is evaluating bringing the technology to Android mobile devices.The McAfee preview at this week’s Intel Developer Forum represents a significant show as well as to how the two companies will work together following Intel’s acquisition of McAfee for $7.68 billion in February.

What is special about DeepSAFE is that it goes beyond the operating system to do “kernel-mode rootkit prevention,” according to McAfee, making the announcement at this week’s Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco.last_img read more
