The much-predicted exodus of solicitors and firms from the legal profession has yet to materialise, new Solicitors Regulation Authority figures have revealed.The SRA’s regulated population update showed 3,189 fewer solicitors in March this year compared with the previous month.But the drop, caused largely by solicitors not renewing their practising certificates for 2014, is only marginally greater than the 2,977 decrease in solicitor numbers at the same stage last year.There are 127,423 practising solicitors in total – 2,231 more than in the aftermath of the 2013 renewal deadline.Earlier this month the SRA wrote to around 4,000 solicitors who had not renewed their PC before the designated deadline, with those who did eventually renew likely to face a rebuke from the regulator later this year.The number of firms has also shown a slight decrease – but not perhaps to the extent that some analysts predicted. By the end of February, 10,554 firms were practising in England and Wales – a reduction of 35 on the previous month.Over a longer term, the trend is for a gradual decline in firm numbers. There are now 273 fewer firms than this time a year ago and 677 fewer than in March 2012.In the three months up to November 2013 – the most recent date figures are available – 361 closed. But this is still less than the 381 that closed over the same period in 2012.A gradual increase in firms closing has largely been offset by an increase in new practices starting up.In the past year almost 1,000 firms have opened, compared with 831 in the previous 12 months. Of those firms that have closed in the past 12 months, 39% have ceased practising and 38.4% have merged or amalgamated.

Today, my beautiful wife and best friend enters Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center to receive the greatest gift that any leukemia patient can be given: a bone marrow transplant and a second chance at life with a new DNA from a very generous (and anonymous) donor from somewhere out there in this wonderful world.We’ve received so many cards, letters, emails, Facebook and Twitter mentions via #JennStrong – the sheer volume of love that has flowed in the direction of Jennifer Ford Aparicio over the past 90 days has been staggering and eye-opening – and we want to first just express our gratitude for all of the concern and offers of kindness and sweet gestures. As awful as some our experiences have been with people over the years, this time in our lives will always be remembered for the good (if not the BEST) in people, especially when some days the burden felt very heavy for us.The love has truly been medicinal on some days when she struggled physically and emotionally. Make no mistake about it, this has been heavy lifting in so many ways.We’ve been peppered with so many questions and concerns regarding her health and honestly don’t know where to begin with dispensing some of the more amazing – and at times “gruesome” for the queasy amongst us – information regarding blood cancer, leukemia and bone marrow transplants. I’m probably the biggest wuss on the planet when it comes to the mention or sight of blood (and Jenn is diabetic to begin with) so this whole thing has been like seeing snakes for me from the beginning.But here’s what you really need to know and hopefully this blog answers some of the FAQs of the #JennStrong bone marrow transplant:Jenn enters the hospital today and will undergo a week of chemotherapy in preparation for her bone marrow transplant next Tuesday, June 17. (This will be her new “birthday.”) There is no “surgery” – just a bag of stem cells and blood that gets attached to her via her port, a pair of tubes that were inserted into her back on March 21st.Our understanding is that there are many less than desirable outcomes that could result from this procedure – there are whole handbooks on Graft vs. Host Disease and other scary complications. Our doctors have been steadfast in their belief that she’s a great candidate for this procedure and that a perfect match and new DNA and bone marrow could give her a whole new lease on life over the next six months. They were also very sobering in their discussions of all of the percentages of living vs. dying, cure vs. recurrence of cancer and various ailments that could exist or take place during the next few weeks.But it’s also very clear that this is Jenn’s only chance to survive because even though she’s in remission and cancer free right now, her pathology indicated that her specific leukemia would certainly come roaring back before the end of football season.Last week a dear friend and client went to breakfast with us and began the conversation by saying, “Wow, you guys have been through a lot of bad stuff!” And we said, “Sure, but let’s examine where we were three months ago and the amazing place where we are now.”On March 20th at 8 a.m. after months of planning with Jenn and my family, I announced the release of my book on the Orioles and Peter Angelos called “The Peter Principles” and my radio comeback after nine years off the air. Nine hours later, Jenn was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia. She began chemotherapy the next day.On March 27th the doctors somberly entered her hospital room and told us that in terms of treatments there are three types of leukemia: good, intermediate and bad. We were told hers was
A man who made more than 150 sexually explicit calls to a teenage girl before being tracked down by Gardai.Gerard Meehan, aged 21, bombarded the girl with phone calls from two separate phones for months on end before he was finally caught. Meehan appeared at Letterkenny Circuit Court in Co Donegal where he pleaded guilty to charges of harassment.The calls had related to period of time between the 7th and 19th of October 2015 when more than 80 calls were made.From January 15th to April 15th in 2016, the injured party had received another seventy calls from a second number, each of them of an explicit nature.Detective Sergeant Ciaran Brolly said the injured party had received them from two phones for which the I.D. had been blocked.The calls had started off with “general chit chat” before descending into sexually explicit comments.The calls had become more frequent and the teenage girl had made a statement to Gardai who traced the incoming calls to two pre-paid mobile phones.“The calls continued even after the complaints were made,” said Sgt Brolly.Gardai then launched an elaborate investigation to find out exactly who were making the phonecalls.Top-up evidence from the phone being used to make the explicit had pinpointed a particular premises from where CCTV footage was obtained.The identification of the vehicle which had been captured in the footage finally traced the calls to Meehan.“They had caused a lot of distress and annoyance and upset to the girl,” Detective Sgt. Brolly stated.The specific nature of some of a large number of calls made were detailed in court.Among the calls the accused asked the teenager “are you wet” and he also asked her to masturbate him.Garda investigations had uncovered a misplaced phone which the defendant had admitted was his.Meehan, of Lisclamerty, Manorcunningham, was subsequently arrested and taken to Letterkenny Garda Station.In a Victim Impact Statement, the injured party described it as a “very stressful time” and said a number of the calls had been received in the early hours of the morning. They had made her feel “physically sick” and anxious and she had struggled to get to sleep.“I felt threatened. I just wished that it would stop,” she indicated. The calls had had a long lasting effect on her.Det. Sgt. Brolly agreed with defence counsel, Sean McGee, B.L. that the defendant had made early admissions to making the calls.He had expressed his regret and said he wanted to apologise to the victim.Meehan’s barrister said his client had been an extremely young man at the time of the offences but that should not take away from the psychological trauma experienced by the injured party.Referring to his client’s immaturity, he said he had been consuming a lot of alcohol at the time and was currently addressing this issue.He said the defendant had cooperated fully with the Gardai and asked the Judge to consider his expressions of remorse and the fact that he had apologised in “no unreserved terms.”Judge John Aylmer said the nature of the crimes of harassment were in the mid-range and he said it merited a jail sentence of three years.“The aggravating factors were the extended period and the extremely depraved sexual nature of the harassment and the negative impact it had on this young lady,” he said.However, he said he also had to take into account the fact that he was a young man at the time, had no previous convictions and did express remorse.Judge Aylmer said because of these mitigating factors, he was reducing the sentence to two years in prison but because of these mitigating factors, he was suspending the jail sentence for two years.He also ordered Meehan to engage with the probation services and to abstain from alcohol and unprescribed drugs.And finally eh ordered Meehan not to communicate with his victim or to go within two kilometres of her workplace or home.Man who made 150 sexually explicit calls to teenager gets suspended sentence was last modified: February 20th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:CallsdonegalGerard Meehanharassmentsex
23 May 2011 Brazil is a country more likely to conjure up images of beaches, samba and soccer than of people hard at work. Yet the tropical nation’s development bank has become an inspiring model to South Africa in its quest to boost industrial development. The idea that South Africa would look to a development bank in Brazil is even more significant when one considers that for years economists repeatedly wrote off the South American country as one of all talk and no action. But in the last decade or more, things have begun to change. Last year, Brazil grew 7.5% and this year it overtook Italy to become the world’s seventh-largest economy. Much of this growth is being driven by loans to businesses and infrastructure projects by Brazil’s development bank, BNDES. The bank has more than tripled its lending over the last five years, so much so that it is now one of the biggest development banks in the world – exceeding even the mighty World Bank. Last year, the Brazilian development bank lent out 168.4-billion reals (R733-billion) – more than double the World Bank’s US$44.2-billion (R306-billion) in disbursements for 2010. This has taken place while the Brazilian development bank last year posted a record profit of 9.9-million reals and a default rate of a mere 0.15%.IDC starts scaling up BNDES lending dwarves that of South Africa’s Industrial Development Corporation (IDC), which in the 2010 financial year disbursed R6.2-billion, posting a profit of R2.2-billion with a 16.3% impairments ratio. But the IDC too, is scaling up. Last month, Economic Development Minister Ebrahim Patel announced that the IDC would invest R102-billion in funding over the next five years – a 160% increase on the IDC’s loan approvals in the past five years. The IDC is now considering selling off some of its holdings – which include shares in major firms such as ArcelorMittal, Sasol and Kumba Iron Ore, among others – to finance the expected R36-billion shortfall in investment spending. It also hopes to inject more capital into small business lending – with the planned merger of Khula Enterprise Finance and the South African Micro Finance Apex Fund (Samaf) with the IDC’s small business funding portfolio to create a wholly-owned subsidiary under the IDC dedicated to funding small enterprises.A more powerful, strategic funding agency Brazil’s development bank has provided the IDC with several important lessons in how to create a more powerful and strategic funding agency – with Patel noting in June last year that his department is looking at emulating the success of BNDES. The Brazilian development bank’s use of funding from its Worker’s Assistance Fund – the equivalent of South Africa’s Workmen’s Compensation Fund – led the IDC to form a joint R2-billion funding scheme with the Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) launched last year. Shakeel Meer, the IDC’s divisional executive of corporate strategy, says the IDC is particularly interested in BNDES’ application of local content development – where the Brazilian development bank insists on a certain percentage of local suppliers or content when it hands out funding. Meer says insight into BNDES’ model had also led to the exposure to various industry specific financing schemes and methods, which has helped the IDC to formulate various financing schemes in recent years.International linkages The IDC has over the years, built strong links with a number of development banks around the world – such as the European Investment Bank, Germany’s KFW/DEG, France’s AFD/Proparco, Japan’s JBIC and the China Development Bank. The IDC first became interested in BNDES in 2005, after an IDC delegation visited its Brazilian counterpart to conduct an institutional benchmarking exercise. In a 2005 study by the IDC’s Jorge Maia and Lumkile Mondi, and economist Simon Roberts, found that BNDES was heavily involved in financing the Brazilian economy such that not a single major undertaking, involving private Brazilian capital after 1950, had taken place in Brazil without BNDES support. The authors also found that despite higher real interest rates in Brazil, BNDES had maintained better rates of investment than South Africa – partly because of the larger role that it plays in Brazil’s economy. They also found that financing at BNDES is closely linked to the bank’s strategic view of the economy and its practice of linking financing requirements to the promotion of local industrialisation. With relations between the IDC and BNDES growing closer, the two, in 2009, signed a technical co-operation agreement aimed at exchanging ideas on industrial strategy, financial products and co-operating in financing projects in Africa.Different operating environments However, Meer cautions that despite the similarity between the corporate mandates and origins, the operating environments and institutional funding models of each institution has evolved in a very different manner. For example, while BNDES has a near monopoly in Brazil’s long-term funding market, the IDC has to compete along side private-sector banks in South Africa. Another difference is that while the IDC has an almost exclusively direct funding approach, BNDES utilises an enormous network of financial intermediaries for indirect funding purposes, largely due to the specific characteristics of the Brazilian financial system. Meer says BNDES use of financial intermediaries accounts for its substantially lower defaults, since this is largely carried by the intermediaries. The IDC’s project development initiatives and its large equity portfolio also means the IDC is forced to assume a “substantially” higher degree of risk than BNDES, he said. Beyond the differences between the two banks, critics have questioned whether BNDES massive scaling up of finance is sustainable, pointing out that the bank’s funding is massively subsidised by Brazil’s treasury, which risks driving up inflation by releasing too much cheap money into the market. Meer however believes the expected increase in IDC financing would not have a negative effect on the South African economy, pointing out that the IDC’s funding activities complement those of the private financial sector. He says IDC also has cooperative funding arrangements with various domestic financiers. The IDC uses a pricing approach that considers both risk and development impact, he says. “In addition, from time to time, IDC introduces specific subsidised funds to promote targeted objectives,” he explains, adding that this was a similar approach to BNDES. The IDC also launched a lower interest rate offering this year which offers prime less three percent for projects with a high employment effect. Meer says the offer of lower interest rates within certain funding schemes is made possible by cross-subsidisation internally, as well as due to specific external funding arrangements with for example the UIF.Too much state control? Speaking to BuaNews recently, BNDES president Luciano Coutinho, disagrees with critics that believe the massive increase in funding by BNDES risks putting the state in too much control of the economy. “In our case there is no danger at all because our bank has a highly professional management and our non-performing loans are much lower than the private banking system,” Coutinho said. “We have a very competent bank and we understand that in order to have an efficient development bank we have got to be absolutely professional in terms of credit rating and independent decision making and we have to be accountable and transparent. “Those are pillars of good governance, because if you don’t have good governance you can’t be a good development bank, because we manage public money so we have to be efficient in managing money.” Coutinho says developing funding priorities was an important step to boosting the role of any developing finance bank and notes that the IDC has already developed priorities such as funding infrastructure development, food security (through loans to agro-processing companies) and the green economy. Last year about 93%, or 568 000, of BNDES funding disbursements were to micro, small and medium-sized companies as well as individuals – with 320 000, or half of all its funding operations were through the BNDES Card – which is a hybrid of an e-commerce and credit card financing system. About R$4.3-billion was disbursed through the card to SMEs – 74% up on 2009. He believes the card might be a product that South Africa could learn from BNDES and that the bank could make available in its technical co-operation agreement with the IDC. Source: BuaNews
Tags:#Apple#web A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… When the words “social” and “Apple” wind up in the same sentence, it’s usually followed by some form of ridicule for Ping, the company’s most serious social networking effort to date. That’s fine. Apple has plenty of strengths; this just isn’t one of them. Deep Facebook integration into the company’s mobile OS will help amend it with some badly needed social features. Apple has always strived to provide the most optimal user experience possible. As social networking weaves itself ever more deeply into the lives of hundreds of millions of people, it becomes a bit harder to achieve that goal without teaming up with a company like Facebook. It’s no secret that discoverability has long been a shortcoming of the iTunes App Store. Apple is expected to fix that with whatever comes of their acquistion of Chomp, but in the meantime, the Facebook integration in iOS 6 will help boost exposure for many popular apps. The partnership reportedly includes native “liking” of apps on iTunes, which will generate more awareness of apps within the Facebook ecosystem and also offer another measure of popularity beyond what’s gleaned from Apple’s own metrics and user-generated reviews. This also opens the door to another marketing opportunity for developers.It’s worth noting that the nature of Apple and Facebook’s partnership is still unclear. TechCrunch reported on the alliance a few days ago, but as Cult of Mac’s Mike Elgan points out, the report doesn’t indicate that the integration will necessarily be as deep as Twitter’s iOS presence. Elgan runs through a list of reasons why he thinks Apple is unlikely to get too cozy with Facebook, and his analysis is worth a read.Assuming the integration is a meaningful one, the real winners here just may be users, given that so many are already actively using social networks from their iPhones and iPads on a daily basis. Like last year’s Twitter integration, plugging Facebook into iOS will simply make it easier for people to do what they’re already doing. Removing even a little bit of friction stands to improve the user experience considerably. If the latest reports are to be believed, we’ll soon be doing a lot more “liking” from our iDevices. That’s because Apple is expected to roll out Facebook integration in iOS 6, allegedly not unlike it did with Twitter in the last major update to its mobile operating system. The baking of the world’s biggest social network deep into one of the world’s biggest smartphone operating systems is a move that, while incredibly delayed, will present important advantages to both companies. What’s in it for FacebookWhen Twitter’s deep integration with iOS 5 rolled out, the microblogging service saw a huge increase in daily sign-ups. Facebook, which is already well on its way to tallying up its billionth users, probably won’t see quite as big of a jump in new users. In some markets, Facebook may see a noticeable uptick in signups as a result of the iOS integration. But the biggest advantage for the newly public social giant will likely be increases in content-sharing and user engagement.With Facebook baked right into iOS, sharing content on the social network will be considerably easier. Not only will the integration simplify single sign-on authentication within third-party apps (and thus reduce the already minor friction there), but its role in Apple’s own native apps will be a boon for Facebook. Safari and the Camera app alone will be substantial pipelines of content funneling directly into Facebook, enabling easier sharing of articles, blog posts and photos. In many ways, the fact that these apps don’t already function this way is absurd. For the last few years, the relationship between the two giants has been, in Facebook’s parlance, complicated. Now that they’re warming up to one another, users will get some useful, if long-overdue, features.What Apple and iOS Stand to Gain john paul titlow Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market
