If the R rate is one or above it will spread exponentially, so government officials use the figures to decide when to ease lockdown measures. Show Comments ▼ “As we see rises around the world, we can’t fool ourselves that we are exempt. We must be willing to react to the first signs of trouble,” said Boris Johnson. The government has previously said that if the R rate is above one it could lead to lockdown measures being reimposed. Last night the government announced via Twitter that restrictions would be reimposed in Greater Manchester, east Lancashire and parts of West Yorkshire. If the growth rate is greater than zero then the pandemic is growing. The North West’s growth rate is estimated to be between -5 per cent and +1 per cent, while the South West is estimated between -4 per cent and +1 per cent.

The North West and South West are currently the worst affected regions, with government data suggesting the rate is between 0.8 and 1.1. Both regions also lead the country in the highest growth rate, which reflects how quickly the number of infections are changing by the day. In a Downing Street briefing this afternoon, the Prime Minister also hit the breaks on the planned easing of restrictions, following a sharp spike in cases. Plans to reopen venues such as casinos and leisure centres have been postponed by two weeks. Fears of a second wave are growing after it was revealed the coronavirus R number has climbed above one in some parts of England. The R rate, also known as the reproduction number, measures the average number of people that one infected person can pass the virus on to.

Alaska’s budget, easier to swallow with ice cream and beer

first_imgAlaska’s Energy Desk | EconomyAlaska’s budget, easier to swallow with ice cream and beerFebruary 3, 2017 by Elizabeth Jenkins and Rashah McChesney, Alaska’s Energy Desk Share:Economist Gunnar Knapp and Cliff Groh, Chair of Alaska Common Ground, talk to a crowd about Alaska’s budget at McGivney’s, a sports bar and grill, on Thursday in Juneau. (Photo by Rashah McChesney/Alaska’s Energy Desk)The Alaska legislature has a lot on its plate trying to fix the state’s multi-billion dollar budget deficit, and a couple of budget experts are adding to the menu. They’re inviting the public to weigh-in over ice cream and beer.Audio Playerhttps://media.ktoo.org/2017/02/03BEERICEX.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.More than 20 people are crowded into Coppa — a local ice cream shop in Juneau — to learn about what’s happening with Alaska’s budget. People dig small plastic spoons into flavors like “fiscal crunch” and “sustainable blueberry budget.”Carole Triem is here with a friend. And while the ice cream doesn’t make the fiscal situation taste any sweeter, she says her main reason for coming is to learn.“I feel like I should know more about the budget than I do. Especially as a state employee because it affects my livelihood,” she said.Jobs like Triem’s could be on the chopping block, as the Alaska legislature looks at ways to reduce state spending. There’s a more than $3 billion hole to fill this year, and with declining oil production and weak revenue, Cliff Groh says we can’t keep living like we have.Cliff Groh, Chair of Alaska Common Ground, talks to a crowd about Alaska’s budget at Coppa, an ice cream and coffee shop, on Thursday in Juneau. (Photo by Rashah McChesney/Alaska’s Energy Desk)Groh is the chair of Alaska Common Ground, a public policy nonprofit, and he served as a special assistant to the Commissioner of Revenue. He’s here presenting with Gunnar Knapp, an economist. You could say Groh’s role is to simplify the jargon of the budget crisis. That’s his mission.“Alaska’s in deep kimchi and all the bland food options have left town,” Groh said. “The choices are spicy and not the easy meatloaf and mashed potatoes. People need to think clearly about the difficult choices we face.”Groh says that means the options to fix Alaska’s budget are not that appealing: deep cuts to state infrastructure, creating a state income or sales tax, repealing the oil and gas tax credit program. We can’t just pick one.“But those are the kinds of choices that Alaska faces now because the savings are running out very fast,” Groh said.He says we’re eventually going to have to eat our kimchi.Groh and Knapp give this same spiel to their audience for over an hour. After everyone leaves, they make their way over to McGivney’s where they’ll do it again.In a back room at the downtown sports bar, Knapp and Groh pick up their informal budget conversation with an after-hours crowd.  They aren’t  shy about telling other people to get comfortable.A budget conversation and free ice cream drew a crowd to Coppa, an ice cream and coffee shop, on Thursday, in Juneau. (Photo by Rashah McChesney/Alaska’s Energy Desk)“By the way, those who just came in, get some beer, there’s beer, enjoy the beer,” Knapp tells a crowd of about 15 people.Knapp kicks off his shoes and reclines on a bar stool while giving the crowd a broad overview of the budget. The state’s dependence on oil money has left lawmakers reeling — trying to figure out where to cut and how deep. So far, Knapp says, they’ve been relying on savings.The crowd is a mix of lawmakers, legislative aids, community members and even a former Deputy Commissioner of the Department of Revenue. And while the conversation is relaxed, they’re grappling with some difficult concepts. A woman in the crowd asks if we’re all screwed. Should she stick it out or leave the state?“I mean, I’m fundamentally an optimist about Alaska,” Knapp said. “And I think that we’ve got a lot of resources, there’s a lot of oil still in the state.”It’s those same concepts that lawmakers struggle with by day at the state capital just a few blocks away. Groh says the competing philosophies of cutting further, capping spending, taxing Alaskans and dipping into the Permanent Fund, make it difficult for legislators to work together.“And Alaska’s political situation surrounding the fiscal problems are sort of like what you might see in an old spaghetti western or Quentin Tarantino film,” Groh said.A standoff.He says Alaskans have been very good at announcing what they don’t want. Now they need to think about what they will accept. And sometimes a scoop of ice cream or a swig of beer can help that reality go down easier.Editor’s Note: A previous version of the story stated Cliff Groh was a former commissioner at the Department of Revenue. He served as a special assistant to the Commissioner of Revenue. The story has been updated to reflect the changes. Share this story:last_img read more

Swedish krona jumps against the euro as it climbs out of deflationary spiral

first_img Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Share whatsapp The Swedish krona jumped against the euro this morning after official data showed it had come out of deflation for the month of May.The krona rose more than one per cent to 0.108 against the euro, and 0.56 per cent to 0.1217 against the dollar. Prices in the country rose 0.1 per cent in May, up from a 0.2 per fall in April – beating expectations of a 0.1 per cent fall. It seems Swedish meatballs are setting people back further, though: prices were pushed up by food, while clothing and footwear also jumped.The news follows yesterday’s upgrade of its inflation expectations, which rose to 1.8 per cent, from 1.7 per cent.Colin Bermingham, an economist at BNP Paribas, suggested the figures were unlikely to encourage Sweden’s central bank to lower its key interest rate, which currently stands a -0.25 per cent, further. “This makes a rate cut ahead of the 2 July policy meeting less likely though we maintain our central view that rates will be cut by another 15bp at that meeting,” he said.  “Can we write [this] up as ‘inflation back with a vengeance’?” asked Societe Generale’s Kit Juckes. “Maybe that’s a bit strong, but the temptation is there because Sweden is either a country in the grips of a deflationary trap, or a country with 2.5 to three per cent real GDP growth, a six per cent GDP current account surplus and a 15 per cent fall in the real effective exchange rate in the last two years.”SEK-EUR(Source: Bloomberg) Emma Haslett Swedish krona jumps against the euro as it climbs out of deflationary spiral Thursday 11 June 2015 6:15 am by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity Weekzenherald.comMeghan Markle Changed This Major Detail On Archies Birth Certificatezenherald.comEquity MirrorThey Drained Niagara Falls — They Weren’t Prepared For This Sickening DiscoveryEquity MirrorTotal PastAfter Céline Dion’s Major Weight Loss, She Confirms What We Suspected All AlongTotal PastPost FunGreat Songs That Artists Are Now Embarrassed OfPost FunLearn It WiseAfter Losing 70lbs Susan Boyle Is So Skinny Now She Looks Like A ModelLearn It WiseTaco RelishKate & Meghan Are Very Different Mothers, These Photos Prove ItTaco RelishLivestlyThe Best Redhead Actresses, RankedLivestlyTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Know what’s worse than the risks of getting the HPV vaccine? Getting an HPV-related cancer. Trust me

first_img About the Author Reprints In an era of $500,000 cancer treatments, you’d expect a vaccine series that costs about $300 and helps prevent several types of cancer to be popular with physicians, insurers, and consumers. It’s not, and, as a result, people are dying. I should know — I’m one of them.The human papillomavirus (HPV) can cause changes in the body that lead to six cancers: cervical, vaginal, and vulvar cancer in women; penile cancer in men; and anal cancer in both women and men. It can also cause oropharyngeal cancer — cancer in the back of the throat, including the base of the tongue and tonsils — in both sexes. In the U.S., approximately 30,000 new cancers attributable to HPV are diagnosed each year.In 2006, the first vaccine became available to protect against HPV infection. I was 38 years old at the time, well above the upper age limit of 26 the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends for getting the vaccine. Ideally it should be given before the teen years, but can be given up to age 26.advertisement By Michael D. Becker Nov. 7, 2017 Reprints Related: Uptake of the HPV vaccine in the U.S. is abysmal, with just 49 percent of girls and 37 percent of boys having received the recommended HPV vaccination series. @Becker_MichaelD Tags cancerpediatricspublic healthVaccines Michael D. Beckercenter_img Individuals who oppose the use of vaccines argue that safety concerns should preclude the use of the HPV vaccine. I disagree. The safety and effectiveness of this vaccine to protect against cancer-causing strains of the HPV virus have been unquestionably proven. Others point to side effects of the HPV vaccine as a reason not to vaccinate young Americans. These may include pain, swelling, redness, itching, bruising, bleeding, or a lump at the injection site as well as headache, fever, nausea, dizziness, tiredness, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and sore throat. Most people who get the vaccine experience no side effects from it other than the pain that accompanies most shots.advertisement First OpinionKnow what’s worse than the risks of getting the HPV vaccine? Getting an HPV-related cancer. Trust me Joe Raedle/Getty Images [email protected] Missing from the discussion are the risks of not getting the vaccine. As someone with HPV-related oropharyngeal cancer, I can describe a few of them. And I can say with certainty I would gladly have experienced any of the vaccine-related side effects rather than the dozen or so “side effects” of the cancer and its treatment that I’m living with. I’ve illustrated them on the image below.Some of these side effects, like hair loss, aren’t hazardous. Others are. I’ve spent time in an intensive care unit for my rapid heart rate, and have had to go to the emergency department several times for my pleural effusion and other issues. All of these pale beside the biggest “side effect” — a terminal disease that will eventually take my life.I urge all parents to talk to your child’s doctor about the HPV vaccine. I wish my parents had that opportunity when I was young, as it could have prevented the cancer that’s killing me.Michael Becker Michael D. Becker is president and founder of MDB Communications LLC. He previously served as president, chief operating officer, chief financial officer, and director for several publicly traded biotechnology companies, including Cytogen, VioQuest Pharmaceuticals, and Relmada Therapeutics.

Other reforms shouldn’t wait for CRM2

first_img “Disclosure alone will not address the serious, systemic issues that have been identified (that is, high costs to investors (in particular, high mutual fund fees), poor product recommendations and lack of effective price competition),” it says. “Accordingly, waiting for the CRM2 proposals to be implemented and further waiting to monitor and assess the effects of the CRM2 proposals before moving on with other needed reforms would be unjustified and will impose real costs on Canadian consumers.” FAIR notes that it supports the CRM2 proposals themselves as a way of improving transparency, but stresses that all firmsshould besubject to the samerequirements, regardless of whether they belong to a self-regulatory organization, or are directly regulated by a securities commission. “This will allow consumers to meaningfully compare the reports they may receive from different firms no matter which regulator directly oversees each firm,” it says. Additionally, FAIR Canada recommends that the pre-trade disclosure of investment costsshouldbe delivered in dollar amounts, rather than percentage terms. It also says thatthe disclosureshouldbe in plain language, and that it should cover all investments in a client’s account (as current MFDA rules require), not just securities. FAIR says that limiting disclosure to securities goes against the spirit of CRM2. “If the proposed amendment is made, an MFDA [rep] could sell a segregated fund or other investment product on a deferred sales charge basis, for example, without having to disclose this fact to the client prior to the sale. Currently, they must do so. Reducing the amount of such important disclosure should not be sanctioned by the MFDA,” it says Finally, FAIR also says that the MFDA should consolidate its CRM2 requirements into a single rule for easier understanding, by both clients and dealers.

In comments on the Mutual Fund Dealers Association of Canada’s (MFDA) proposed version of the CRM2 rules, which aim to enhance disclosure of investment performance and costs, FAIR Canada argues that the implementation of other reforms should not be put on hold while CRM2 is being implemented. last_img read more

Global speculative-grade default rate to rise in 2015: Moody’s

first_imgJames Langton Share this article and your comments with peers on social media “Looking ahead, widening high-yield spreads, geopolitical concerns and weak economic growth outside the U.S. may put some upward pressure on the global default rate. However, an improving U.S. economy, together with ample liquidity and manageable maturity profiles should keep the default rate low by historical standards,” says Albert Metz, managing director of Moody’s credit policy research. Moody’s reports that a total of 54 rated corporate debt issuers defaulted in 2014. Five of these occurred in December, and nine companies defaulted in the fourth quarter. Of the nine defaults, four were from North America, three were in the Asia Pacific region, and the other two were in Europe. By sector, Moody’s expects default rates to be highest in the consumer services sector in the U.S., and in the aerospace & defense sector in Europe in the next 12 months. Additionally, it reports that its global distressed index, which measures the percentage of high-yield issuers whose debt is trading at distressed levels, more than doubled to 18.1% in the fourth quarter from 8.3% in the third.

NPSC to Stage Information Fairs in Portland and St. Ann

first_imgThe National Parenting Support Commission (NPSC) will be equipping parents to deal with school transition for their children, at two Parenting Information Fairs to be staged in Portland and St. Ann.One fair will be held on August 24, at the Port Antonio High School, in Portland, beginning at 12 noon, and the other at the St. Hilda’s High School, in Brown’s Town, St. Ann, on August 27, at 12 noon.Executive Director of the Commission, Dr. Patrice Charles-Freeman, told JIS News that parents will receive crucial information to help their children in the secondary school system, and children will be coached into adhering to responsible high school life, as well as given free school supplies.“We will be having presentations from professionals on issues such as managing a successful transition from primary to secondary level, helping teenagers to adjust to secondary school, and fathers in the education process. We really want to engage fathers in the education process with their children,” she said.“We are asking parents to come out and support the fairs, and to bring their children.

Jimenez goes low, Maggert leading, Kelly lurking

first_imgPHOENIX — Jeff Maggert kept the lead Saturday in the Charles Schwab Cup Championship, while Miguel Angel Jimenez went low and Jerry Kelly had one of the best rounds of the day to get back in the fight for the PGA Tour Champions’ season points title. Maggert birdied the par-5 18th for a 2-under 69 and a one-stroke lead over Jimenez with one round left in the season finale at Phoenix Country Club. Maggert sits at 16 under through three rounds. He has led all three days, opening with rounds of 63 and 65. Jimenez birdied the final two holes for a 63. He won the playoff opener last month in Virginia. Retief Goosen, the last of the five players in the field with a chance to take the season Charles Schwab Cup title, was third at 14 under after a 66. Joe Durant (65) was 13 under, and Berhard Langer (69) and Woody Austin (65) were 12 under. Maggert (69) looks to play more aggressively Sunday at Charles Schwab Cup Championship Full-field scores from the Charles Schwab Cup Championship Kelly, second behind Scott McCarron in the standings, followed a second-round 74 with a 64 to move into a tie for 12th at 9 under. Kelly would win the season championship with a victory and could take it with a solo sixth-place finish if McCarron – tied for 25th at 4 under after a 69 – ends up in a three-way tie for 18th or worse. McCarron would take the title no matter where he finishes if Kelly finishes in a two-way tie for eighth or worse and Langer, Colin Montgomerie and Goosen fail to win. Langer is still in the mix for his record sixth season title. Third entering the week, the 62-year-old German star needs to win the event and have McCarron finish in a two-way tie for fifth or worse and Kelly finish in a two-way tie for second or worse. Langer is coming off a playoff loss to Montgomerie on Sunday in California in the second playoff event. Montgomerie, fourth in the standings, was tied for 10th at 10 under after a 67. Like Langer, Montgomerie and Goosen also needs to win the tournament and get help from McCarron and Kelly to take the season title. Maggert won three times on the PGA Tour and has five senior victories, one in 2014 and four in 2015.last_img read more
