Shaun Bailey: London deserves better than the mayor’s message of doom

first_imgAnd I would fix the mistakes that Sadiq Khan made during this crisis. Reversing his congestion charge hike. Reopening the Waterloo and City line. Binning his plans to defund the police by £110 million. And focusing relentlessly on the welfare of every resident in every community, not worrying about issues outside of my control. Shaun Bailey: London deserves better than the mayor’s message of doom He spent the crisis talking about the EU, which he has no control over, rather than doing something about rising crime and struggling businesses, which he has full control over. And now he appears to have no plan to get London moving again.  Commuters are slowly coming back to the capital – but mayor Sadiq Khan has warned that central London will not be busy any time soon (AFP via Getty Images) So if I were mayor, I would launch a big campaign to get London moving again. This campaign would be aimed to reach everyone — from top CEOs to workers on the frontlines.  Show Comments ▼ So for the sake of jobs, businesses, the economy and workers – let’s help people get back to their offices. Let’s get London moving again. Tuesday 8 September 2020 12:01 am Think about all the businesses that exist only to serve other businesses. IT companies, office-supply companies, printers, caterers, cleaners, even newspapers — the list goes on and on. You may not feel much sympathy with the high-powered ad executive who loses their job. But you may feel some sympathy for the minimum-wage cleaner who can no longer find work.

Most Londoners understand the central truth of economics: that one person’s spending is another person’s income. And it is not just the hospitality, leisure and retail industries that depend on customers.  This is what we need. Because the truth is that mass working from home just isn’t a permanent option. People miss out on too much. Yes, they miss out on socialising with colleagues and after-work drinks. But they also miss out on personal development, on mentors, on making connections.  Instead, Sadiq Khan has told people worried about their livelihoods to get used to it. He agrees that any number of businesses need to operate at near-full capacity to survive. But his message to those businesses is grim: don’t expect London to be busy any time soon. This kind of talk is easy for someone who does not run a small business, or drive a black cab, or work in a shop that depends on customers. It is the kind of talk that can only come from someone who sees London as a tourist destination, rather than a city where people live and work. It is the kind of talk that can only come from someone with a salary guaranteed by taxpayers. It would not be led by City Hall alone. I would use the mayor’s powers to bring businesses and the public sector together, working on incentives and coordinating messages.  Tube use is down 70 per cent. High streets are empty. Only 17 per cent of people are back in offices. These are unprecedented times for London. Commuters are slowly coming back to the capital – but mayor Sadiq Khan has warned that central London will not be busy any time soon (AFP via Getty Images) Also Read: Shaun Bailey: London deserves better than the mayor’s message of doom Sadiq Khan increased the congestion charge and extended it to seven days a week, hitting families and businesses. He is refusing to reopen the Waterloo and City Line, even though workers are calling on him to do so. He let Hammersmith Bridge close yet again, leaving residents and emergency services without a reliable river crossing.  Shaun Bailey So if Sadiq Khan thinks that people like this should find other jobs, then he needs to level with us. If he thinks that it is time to give up on London, then we need to know. Because right now, his actions suggest that he does not care all that much about a recovery. Opinion So you’d think the mayor of London would have a plan to get people back to their offices safely and securely. You’d think he would be innovative, like the chancellor, and work with the government and businesses on incentives to get people into central London. You’d think that at this time of crisis, the mayor’s role would be used like never before to help every resident in every community. Tags: Future of Work Sadiq Khan City A.M.’s opinion pages are a place for thought-provoking views and debate. These views are not necessarily shared by City A.M. Londoners deserve better. But so does the rest of the country. London is nearly a quarter of the UK economy. Every Londoner provides £3,070 more in tax revenues than they get in public spending. And that surplus helps to pay for vital spending in less well-off regions. It is not just jobs in London we should be worrying about, but jobs across the country. whatsapp Commuters are slowly coming back to the capital – but mayor Sadiq Khan has warned that central London will not be busy any time soon (AFP via Getty Images) Also Read: Shaun Bailey: London deserves better than the mayor’s message of doom whatsapp last_img read more


First Lady adopted into Tlingit clan

Paul Marks and Ishmael Hope help announce her name, Koodeishghé, four times. (Photo by Lisa Phu/KTOO)First Lady Donna Walker was adopted into the Tlingit Deisheetaan clan Thursday night. She was given a Tlingit name at the end of an indigenous literature reading she hosted at the Governor’s Mansion.Writer Ishmael Hope announced the surprise honor. He said the name was approved by Deisheetaan clan elder Selina Everson.“Selina wanted to give a very, very special name of Koodeishghé,” Hope said.That name was once held by the late Lydia George of Angoon.“And I knew her. She was just an extreme wealth of information and knowledge of Tlingit culture, Tlingit history,” Hope said. “It just shows the high value that Selina and the Deisheetaan have for First Lady Walker.”Hope says the naming also brings the Walker family together. Gov. Bill Walker was given a Kaagwaantaan clan name of the Wolf/Eagle moiety in April. To make it complete, Hope said the First Lady needed a Raven name.Symbolizing payment for the name, Clan Conference Executive Director Gerry Hope put money on the First Lady’s forehead as her Tlingit name was announced four times.“A real blessing,” Walker said. “I was with the governor when they surprise adopted him into the clan, so it’s twice now we’ve been able to experience that. It’s the highest honor.”The Deisheetaan will confirm Walker’s Tlingit name during a memorial ceremony at a later date.Share this story: read more


BP halts oil and gas leaking from North Slope well

first_imgAlaska’s Energy Desk | Energy & Mining | Environment | North Slope | Public SafetyBP halts oil and gas leaking from North Slope wellApril 17, 2017 by Elizabeth Harball, Alaska’s Energy Desk Share:Image from the incident location, taken during an overflight on April 14, 2017. Well 2 and the extent of crude misting is visible on the snow within the red-lined area. (Photo courtesy Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation/BP Exploration (Alaska))BP announced today that a leak from one of its North Slope production wells was stopped at 3:35 am Monday.State regulators don’t yet have an estimate for how much oil and gas was released from the well. The cause of the incident is still unknown.The well was spewing both gas and crude oil when BP first noticed the leak on Friday morning. State and federal regulators reported the well stopped spraying oil on Saturday after a safety valve was activated.The well continued venting natural gas until it was killed Monday morning by pumping salt water down the hole. BP is currently maintaining the water pressure until it can use a mechanical plug to secure the well. It’s not yet known when that plug can be installed.The initial response took place during challenging weather conditions, according to Suzanne Skadowski, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s public information officer for the incident.“It has continued to be very cold, and there have been pretty significant winds. Twenty to 30 miles per hour, upwards of 40 and 50 miles an hour,” said Skadowski.But Skadowski said the main challenge was the well itself. Two separate leaks had formed and the well had risen three to four feet out of the ground. This caused a pressure gauge to break off, which hindered efforts to kill the well.BP employees were forced to leave the pad during the incident and no injuries were reported.Regulators are investigating the leak’s impact on the environment, but an initial overflight indicated the crude spray didn’t reach the nearby tundra.Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission Chair Cathy Foerster said her agency will observe the leak investigation, but there’s not yet any evidence that BP did something wrong.“We have no reason to believe that BP did anything that was regulatorily non-compliant. We have no reason to believe that human error was involved. We just don’t know,” said Foerster.Foerster said at the time of the incident, the well was producing about 300 barrels of oil and 30 million cubic feet of gas per day.The well is located about five miles from the Deadhorse airport, and the nearest community, Nuiqsut, is approximately 50 miles west of the pad.Update | 2:50 p.m. April 17.This post has been updated to reflect the fact that the oil release was halted Saturday.Share this story:last_img read more


Large wildfires force evacuations in California; 5,000 firefighters deployed

first_imgNational News | NPR News | Outdoors | Public Safety | Search & Rescue | WildlifeLarge wildfires force evacuations in California; 5,000 firefighters deployedJuly 9, 2017 by Bill Chappell, NPR News Share:Firefighters try to keep a wildfire from jumping a street near Oroville, Calif., on Saturday. Evening winds drove the fire through several neighborhoods, leveling homes in its path. Noah Berger/APHot and dry conditions in the West are feeding wildfires in the U.S. and Canada, prompting evacuation orders for thousands of people. In California, some 5,000 firefighters are battling 14 large wildfires, state officials say.“The Whittier Fire, which is burning in the Santa Ynez Valley of Santa Barbara County, is especially concerning for firefighters because it’s near hundreds of homes,” reports Debra Greene from member station KCLU. “It has already destroyed some structures, and mandatory evacuations are in place.”The Whittier Fire started Saturday and spread quickly. It’s burning in steep, rugged terrain with plenty of fuel. Greene quotes Mike Eliason of the Santa Barbara County Fire Department saying, “A lot of vegetation hasn’t burned on this side for a good 40, 50 years on the North Slope. So, it’s a very difficult fight.”The blaze forced people to flee cabins in the Los Padres National Forest and briefly stranded some 90 children and 50 counselors at the Circle V Ranch near Cachuma Lake, member station KPCC reports. They were later taken to safety.The Whittier Fire is now at 7,800 acres and is 5 percent contained. The Alamo Fire is even larger: At some 24,000 acres, it straddles parts of Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties, and was 10 percent contained on Sunday, according to Cal Fire.North of Sacramento, the Wall Fire grew by thousands of acres overnight and prompted a new round of evacuation orders in Butte County. The fire is now 5,000 acres and threatens 750 structures, Capital Public Radio reports. As of Sunday morning, it had destroyed 10 structures.In recent days, temperatures have been topping the 100-degree mark in much of the West — including in Oregon, where a fire at Summer Lake quickly grew to cover 950 acres on Saturday.In Washington, the Dry Creek fire forced a highway to be closed after rapidly growing to 500 acres.In British Columbia, more than 7,000 people have fled their homes due to wildfire threats, according to Canada’s CBC.The CBC reports, “Around a dozen wildfires of concern were listed Sunday morning, burning through more than 15,500 hectares of land and threatening buildings in the Interior and Cariboo.”Copyright 2017 NPR.

Skier dead after avalanche strikes in Hatcher Pass

first_imgOutdoors | Public Safety | Search & Rescue | SouthcentralSkier dead after avalanche strikes in Hatcher PassNovember 24, 2017 by Casey Grove, Alaska Public Media Share:A view from Hatcher Pass Near Independence Mine 1 on May 2010. (Creative Commons photo by Larry Eiring/Flickr)A skier died in an avalanche Wednesday afternoon in Hatcher Pass, north of Palmer, according to Alaska State Troopers.Troopers identified the skier as Randall Bergt, 60, of Anchorage, the Associated Press reported today.The man’s death is the first avalanche fatality in Alaska this winter.Troopers spokesman Tim DeSpain said the man was part of a group of three skiing in the pass north of Archangel Road when a layer of snow broke loose and slid down the mountain.“Two of the skiers were able to make it clear of the avalanche, and one skier was caught up in the avalanche,” DeSpain said.All three were wearing locator beacons, and the two who were not buried found their friend and dug him out, DeSpain said.“It was reported that they initiated CPR but were unsuccessful, and that the one skier was confirmed deceased,” DeSpain said.Troopers, EMTs and state parks personnel responded, as did a Wildlife Trooper helicopter, but the chopper was unable to land near the man’s body.Later, responders had to hike to the body to recover it, DeSpain said.The Hatcher Pass Avalanche Center categorized the avalanche danger as “considerable” Monday, the last day the center issued a report.“Considerable” is the third highest level of danger out of five.Share this story:last_img read more


Challenger bank Aldermore covers books on IPO

first_imgTuesday 3 March 2015 10:24 am Challenger bank Aldermore has covered the books on its initial public offering, early in the first day of its bookbuild, City A.M. understands. The lender had to postpone its flotation late last year on choppy market conditions, so will be relieved to have had such a warm hearing from investors this time around. The bank, headed by Phillip Monks, is selling shares worth 40 per cent of the business, and is raising £75m of new funds in the stock market debut.Its IPO is expected to value the bank at £600m to £660m, with shares priced at between £1.75 to £1.95. Having scrapped its original plans in October, Aldermore confirmed at the end of last month that it was planning to have another go at its IPO, after it posted figures showing underlying profit before tax more than doubled in 2014 to £56m, while return on equity increased 15 per cent and net loans rose 42 per cent to £4.8bn. Aldermore will become the second challenger bank to IPO in recent months: in November, Virgin Money pressed ahead with its plans to float, having scrapped them around the same time as Aldermore.  Challenger bank Aldermore covers books on IPO whatsapp whatsapp More From Our Partners Inside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comcenter_img Share Emma Haslett by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity WeekGundry MD Bio Complete 3 SupplementTop Surgeon: This Simple Trick Empties Your Bowels Every Morning (Almost Immediately)Gundry MD Bio Complete 3 Supplementzenherald.comMeghan Markle Changed This Major Detail On Archies Birth Certificatezenherald.comMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesDefinitionThe Most Famous Movie Filmed In Every U.S. StateDefinitionTheFashionBallPrince Harry Admits Meghan Markle May Not Be The OneTheFashionBallNoteableyKirstie Alley Is So Skinny Now And Looks Like A BarbieNoteableyEquity MirrorThey Drained Niagara Falls — They Weren’t Prepared For This Sickening DiscoveryEquity Mirror Show Comments ▼ Tags: Aldermore Challenger bankslast_img read more


SEC alleges asset manager duped investors

first_img PwC alleges deleted emails, unusual transactions in Bridging Finance case Judge gavel, scales of justice and law books in court flynt/123RF A former managing partner at GPB, Jeffrey Lash, GPB’s placement agent, Ascendant Capital, Ascendant Alternative Strategies LLC and Ascendant’s owner, Jeffry Schneider, have also been charged.Since 2013, the firm has raised over US$1.7 billion for at least five limited partnership funds from approximately 17,000 retail investors, including approximately 4,000 seniors, the SEC said.“Nearly all of the US$1.7 billion raised is still at risk,” the regulator said, noting that GPB Capital suspended all redemptions and distributions in 2018 and “according to a recent regulatory filing, GPB Capital’s assets are far below its obligations to the investors.”According to the SEC’s filing, GPB Capital promised investors annual distributions of 8% based on returns from its portfolio companies.“In reality, GPB Capital used investor funds” to help finance those distributions, the SEC alleged; adding “the fraudulent scheme continued for more than four years in part because GPB Capital kept investors in the dark about the limited partnership funds’ true financial condition.”Gentile, Schneider, GPB Capital, Ascendant Capital and Ascendant Alternative Strategies are charged with violating securities laws. Lash, meanwhile, is charged with aiding and abetting some of those violations. GPB Capital is also accused of retaliating against a whistleblower.The allegations have not been proven.The SEC is seeking disgorgement of ill-gotten gains plus prejudgment interest and penalties in the case.“As alleged in our complaint, the defendants told investors that they would be paid distributions from profits of the portfolio companies when, in reality, many of the payments were being made from the investors’ own funds,” said Richard Best, director of the SEC’s New York office, in a release.“Whistleblower protections are a cornerstone of the SEC’s whistleblower program. The charges filed today reinforce the commission’s commitment to protecting whistleblowers from retaliation and attempts to stifle the free flow of information to the commission about possible securities law violations,” said Jane Norberg, chief of the SEC’s Office of the Whistleblower.Gentile, Schneider and Lash are also facing criminal charges brought by the U.S. attorney’s office for the Eastern District of New York.

Australia’s Treasury Department gives small businesses early Christmas present

first_imgAustralia’s Treasury Department gives small businesses early Christmas present Small businesses in Australia is guaranteed to be paid for their services within five days if they use e-invoicing, after the Australian Government’s Treasury Department became the first agency to go live with a fully integrated, all Australian tech-led e-invoicing solution.The Prime Minister announced in October that every Australian Government agency must implement e-invoicing as part of a suite of measures aimed at boosting the economy post COVID-19.Ahead of the PM’s commitment, Australian software company TechnologyOne has been on the ground for more than a year working with Treasury and the Australian Tax Office (ATO) to develop a highly secure solution, which also fully integrates into TechnologyOne’s government financial systems.CEO of TechnologyOne Ed Chung said e-invoicing is a key step in the digital transformation of accounts payable and done right – will revolutionise small business and government agencies.“Growing up in and around small family businesses most of my early life, I know first-hand how important cashflow is to survive, and to be able to pay the bills and staff.“Now, as the CEO of a large and successful ASX listed enterprise software company who’s worked with the Federal Government for decades,  I am very pleased to be able to work alongside Treasury and other agencies to help them realise the full benefits to their own business and to get money flowing to small businesses faster.“We understand e-invoicing is a high-priority issue for the Government, and we’re committed to ensuring this important economic recovery and digital transformation initiative happens smoothly for the benefit of all Australians,” Mr Chung said.According to Peter Strong, CEO of the Council of Small Business Organisations of Australia, a policy group which advocates for over one million small businesses,  e-invoicing is a key step in the digital transformation of accounts payable , and if done right,  will make the lives of business owners easier, and encourage them to modernize and automate their IT systems in a secure and simple way.“It should be noted that it is small business associations and the software industry who have led the way in getting e-invoicing onto the business and government’s agenda. Now, more than ever, Australian small businesses need e-invoicing. Last year we were saying e-invoicing was the future. It’s now the present, and it’s great to see Treasury is truly leading by example.“It’s also very pleasing to see the Federal Government putting their ‘buy local’ message into action by choosing an Australian company like TechnologyOne, to lead the charge. E-invoicing is about less stress for small business folk and more time to run the business or spend time with family,” Mr Strong said.With Treasury’s e-invoicing initiative now up and running and successfully paying their suppliers within a five day turn around, TechnologyOne’s designed-for-government integrated solution is now ready to be rolled out across other agencies.Earlier this year, TechnologyOne became the only enterprise software solution to earn the coveted “IRAP PROTECTED” security assessment across the full suite of products, materially raising the cyber security posture of Federal Government agencies at no additional cost. /Public Release.

BOM return welcome: Hill

first_imgBOM return welcome: Hill Mayor Jenny Hill has welcomed today’s announcement that locally-focused meteorologists will again be based in Townsville to support the local community before and during natural disasters.Media reports today indicate that the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) will employ six new staff for its Townsville office.Cr Hill said not having locally-focused meteorologists based in Townsville was a risk for the community. Meteorologists focused exclusively on providing advice to the ADF have remained in Townsville.“Not having meteorologists that the community could access left local communities like Townsville, Ingham and the Burdekin dangerously exposed, especially during natural disasters,” Cr Hill said.“Townsville City Council has continually lobbied, in the face of opposition from some in the community, for these services to be returned and we rallied the community behind this important cause.“I acknowledge the efforts of other mayors across North Queensland, the State Government and the community in lobbying the Australian Government to restore meteorological services in Townsville.“With the wet season only six months away, I hope these promised new staff will be brought on board as soon as possible in advance of any natural disasters that may come our way.”Cr Hill said she looked forward to receiving a full briefing from representatives of the BOM and the Australian Climate Service as soon as possible.“I want to fully understand the work that the Australian Climate Service will be undertaking and what services they will provide.” /Public Release.

Beautiful B.C. a bountiful place for carnuts this weekend

first_img On Canada Day I was up early for an 8 a.m. photo shoot at the Jellybean Autocrafters show roll-in. As always, a stellar collection of classics, particularly the 1959-61 Impalas that I am always partial to. The Cougar club all came in together and while Gordy Korupchuk’s cool car wasn’t the only one to overheat, he at least had an excuse, as it is a fresh engine of a fresh build. Luckily the road is sloped so he could coast much of the way in.But no coasting this weekend as there are 21 car events/races to get to. And don’t forget to take a kid along with you.

Vintage Truck Museum and the B.C. Hot Rod Association I’m really excited about their combined shows this year at the Casino in Cloverdale on Saturday. Unfortunately, that means I’ll miss the vintage races in Seattle.
