UK regulator adopts rules to boost stewardship transparency

first_img‘Important baseline’ The new rules represented “an important baseline for stewardship actions”, according to the FCA. Deciding whether and how to build on this would need to be “carefully” considered, it added.At present the hope is that greater transparency will “encourage the emergence of a market where firms in part compete on their effective stewardship”. The new rules come into effect on 10 June, which is the deadline for EU member states to implement SRD II, itself passed in 2017. However, given the short time period between publication of the rules and their becoming effective, the FCA indicated that asset managers could explain what they were doing to develop an engagement policy if they did not have one to publish. UK asset managers will be required to publish their policies for engagement with investee companies and annual information on how this has been implemented, or publicly explain why they are not doing so, with effect from next month.According to the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), which announced the rules today, asset managers must also “provide information to asset owners, including on how their investment strategies contribute to the medium to long-term performance of the assets”.The regulator said the rules were “a close copy-out” of relevant requirements in the revised EU Shareholder Rights Directive (SRD II), except with regard to geographic scope.The rules will namely apply to investments in shares traded not only on markets in the European Economic Area (EEA) – which is the minimum requirement of SRD II – but also on “comparable” markets outside the EEA.center_img The entrance to the FCA’s headquarters in Stratford, LondonProposals for the final rules unveiled today were part of a package of stewardship-related announcements made at the end of January, with the Financial Reporting Council also setting out a draft revised Stewardship Code. The FCA today said it might take time for SRD II, the revised code and related initiatives to embed.The regulator also said it recognised that firms should not be expected to exercise stewardship in an identical way, or to the same intensity, or uniformly in all markets. The rules on shareholder engagement policies apply on a comply-or-explain basis.“One aim of SRD II is to enable asset owners to understand the way in which their asset managers engage with the companies in which they invest,” the FCA said. “Different asset managers choose to explain their offerings in different ways. Asset owners can then judge whether or not that offering meets their needs.”Publication of the new rules to implement SRD II comes after the Association of Member Nominated Trustees called on the FCA to investigate a “market failure” with regard to fund managers’ voting policies. The trustee body has been pushing for asset managers to accept client-directed voting in pooled funds, in particular on the basis of its voting guidelines on environmental, social and corporate governance matters.A spokesperson for the FCA said it was considering the association’s letter and planned to meet with it to discuss its concerns.last_img read more

Human stem cells ‘help blind rats’

first_imgHealthLifestyle Human stem cells ‘help blind rats’ by: – March 8, 2012 12 Views   no discussions Share Tweet Sharing is caring!center_img Share More than one in 10 people over the age of 75 have some form of glaucomaStem cells taken from the back of a human eye have restored some vision to blind rats, according to researchers.They say the findings could help treat blindness, caused by glaucoma, if similar results can be repeated in humans.The study, published in the journal Stem Cells Translational Medicine, used the cells to form new nerves in the eye.These hooked up with the existing nerves, restoring sight.Glaucoma can lead to blindness and is caused by a build-up of pressure within the eye. This kills retinal ganglion cells, the nerves which take information from the retina and pass it onto the brain.Researchers at University College London and Moorfields Eye Hospital believe they have regenerated the retinal ganglion cells using human stem cells.With permission from families, cell samples were taken from eyes which had been donated for cornea transplants.Very rare cells in the eye, Muller glia stem cells, were collected. These were grown in the laboratory and converted into retinal ganglion cells.These cells were then transplanted into the eyes of rats without retinal ganglion cells. Before the transplant the rats were blind. Afterwards, electrodes attached to the rats’ heads showed that their brains were responding to low levels of light. One of the researchers Dr Astrid Limb said the new cells were not joining up with the optic nerve as they would normally. Instead they appeared to be “bridging” with other nerves in the retina, which could pass the message on.She said: “Although this research is still a long way from the clinic, it is a significant step towards our ultimate goal of finding a cure for glaucoma and other related conditions.”Prof Peng Khaw, the director of the National Institute for Health Research centre at Moorfields, said: “These results are very exciting. “We see patients with glaucoma whose lives would be transformed with an improvement of only a small percentage of nerve cell function. “The results of these experiments suggest that this may be possible in the future using cells we all have in our own eyes to achieve this.”The study was funded by the Medical Research Council. Its head of regenerative medicine, Dr Rob Buckle, said: “Repair of the eye is an area that is now at the forefront of this field, and this study highlights a new route for delivering the promise of regenerative medicine to treat disabling conditions such as glaucoma.” By James GallagherHealth and science reporter, BBC News Sharelast_img read more

New date for Tokyo Olympics ‘won’t satisfy everybody’, says Coe

first_imgWorld Athletics president Sebastian Coe admitted Friday that settling on a new date for the Tokyo Olympics in 2021 will not satisfy everybody.Advertisement “All sports have made it pretty clear they have particular challenges at particular times of the year,” said Coe.“We are probably not going to reach a solution that meets with the approval of every sport.“But there does have to be an element of flexibility and there is going to be flexibility for the next two years.”The 2021 World Athletics Championships, for example, are scheduled to be staged in August next year in Eugene, Oregon.The 2020 Olympics, which were set for July 24-August 9 this year, were postponed until 2021 by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) this week because of the coronavirus.However, there is no definite date yet for the rescheduled Games with IOC chief Thomas Bach saying Tuesday the Olympics “must be rescheduled to a date beyond 2020 but not later than summer 2021”.There have been suggestions even that the rebooted Olympics could be held in the spring and so allow athletes to avoid competing in the brutal heat and humidity of Japan’s summer.Read Also: Wilfred Ndidi named best ball-holding midfielder in Premier League“There are clearly demands for this decision to be taken as quickly as possible – the athletes and the federations need clarity,” added Coe.“Once the decision is made, we can build (the calendars) around it.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… center_img Promoted Content10 Risky Jobs Some Women DoBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For Them6 Incredibly Strange Facts About Hurricanes5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme Parks10 Phones That Can Easily Fit In The Smallest PocketTop 10 Most Romantic Nations In The WorldBest & Worst Celebrity Endorsed Games Ever MadeThis Guy Photoshopped Himself Into Celeb Pics And It’s Hysterical7 Mind-Boggling Facts About Black Holes6 TV Shows That Got Better After A Major Character Had Left8 Best 1980s High Tech Gadgets6 Ridiculous Health Myths That Are Actually Truelast_img read more

WV COVID-19 cases nearing 100 mark; 9 OFWs test positive for coronavirus

first_imgILOILO City – Nine more overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) who returned to Western Visayas last week tested positive for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). They were part of the 11 new cases in the region that the Department of Health (DOH) confirmed yesterday. * 42-year-old male from Bacolod City (Patient No. 87) * 46-year-old male (Patient No. 88), facility quarantine “Of the region’s 91 COVID-19 cases, 31 already recovered while 10 died,” said Sta. Lucia. * 43-year-old male from Escalante City, Negros Occidental (Patient No. 84) * Aklan – six These 11 cases brought to 91 the total number of COVID-19 patients in Western Visayas, according to Dr. May Ann Soliva-Sta. Lucia, head of DOH Region 6’s Health Promotion division. COVID-19 is the infectious disease caused by the most recently discovered coronavirus now called SARS-CoV-2. This new virus and disease were unknown before the outbreak began in Wuhan, China in December 2019. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don’t feel unwell. * 28-year-old male from Mandurriao, Iloilo City (Patient No. 82) * 33-year-old male (Patient No. 85) hospitalized * Capiz – five * 34-year-old male from Hamtic, Antique (Patient No. 91) * 30-year-old female from La Castellana, Negros Occidental (Patient No. 83) * Bacolod City – nine Barangay Sto. Niño Sur is currently on lockdown to prevent further COVID-19 transmission. Here’s the breakdown of the 91 cases per area: * Negros Occidental – twocenter_img * Iloilo City – 15 * 38-year-old male from Laua-an, Antique (Patient No. 89) * 24-year-old male from Nueva Valencia, Guimaras (Patient No. 81) However, older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes are more likely to develop serious illness. The two other new cases (Arevalo, Iloilo City) were: In Bulletin No. 41, the nine OFWs – now in isolation in their respective local government units’ quarantine facilities – were the following: * Iloilo province – 18 The two other new cases were residents of Arevalo district here. These two Arevalo cases brought to seven the COVID-19 patients in the district. * Antique – 14 * Repatriates – 22 (Aklan, one; Antique, three; Guimaras, two; Iloilo province, three; Negros Occidental, four; Bacolod City, two; Iloilo City, seven) * 42-year-old male from Tobias Fornier, Antique (Patient No. 90) * 27-year-old male from Bacolod City (Patient No. 86) Most people (about 80 percent) recover from the disease without needing special treatment, according to the World Health Organization. As of press time, however, it was unclear if they were also residents of Barangay Sto. Niño Sur, Arevalo where the district’s first five cases came from. The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. There is yet no vaccine or treatment for COVID-19./PNlast_img read more

Monk spurred on by birthday boys

first_imgSwansea manager Garry Monk will be at Tottenham instead of his twins’ first birthday party on Wednesday – but the present he really wants is three points at White Hart Lane. Monk joked he was in the doghouse with wife Lexy for missing the celebrations for twin sons Louis and Theo after the Barclays Premier League game was put back 24 hours because of Tottenham’s involvement in the Capital One Cup final on Sunday. “I’ve had it all in the ear!” said Monk. “The game was moved because they got to the final and my wife was the first to see it. “For whatever reason, that’s the record but we have had some good games against them. “So while the stats show what they do, I think the story of the games is that they have been competitive.” Successive wins over Manchester United and Burnley have seen Swansea reach the 40-point mark after 27 games, the fewest amount of matches in which they have achieved that feat. Two seasons ago Swansea reached 40 points after 28 games but Michael Laudrup’s side managed only six more in their final 10 games and Monk does not expect that sort of slide to happen again. “It’s not a concern the players will down tools,” Monk said. “I think you have seen in the last two performances that the focus has been there. “Where we’re at, and the history of where we are, we will win games and lose games. “That will be the case in the 11 games coming up but our focus is on trying to win as many as possible and get as many points as possible and not just settle for what we have got. “We are safe which is great, but you want more than that and this group of players want more than that.” “But my wife understands my job and has been tremendous about it. “The twins are having a party on Wednesday so I will have to FaceTime them. “Maybe I could try it at half-time and get the lads to give them a wave! “But I am sure we will celebrate when I get back and it would be great to have three points when we do. “I’m not sure they will appreciate it but, then again, it could be a perfect present.” Swansea have certainly found gifts hard to come by against Spurs who triumphed 2-1 at the Liberty Stadium in December and have actually won the last six games between the two clubs after the first Premier League meeting ended in a draw. While Swansea have beaten Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United in one competition or another since joining the Premier League elite, Tottenham have remained a bridge too far for the Welsh club. “We have probably been a bit unlucky to have that record against us but they are a difficult side to play, a good side with quality,” Monk said.

Torres scores two as Chelsea go through

first_imgChelsea 5 Leicester 2Fernando Torres finally ended his barren run as Chelsea breezed into the semi-finals of the FA Cup.The Spaniard scored twice in a comprehensive victory for the Blues – their fourth win in as many games since interim boss Roberto Di Matteo was placed in charge.AdChoices广告Gary Cahill, Salomon Kalou and Raul Meireles also got on the scoreheet, but it was Torres who stole the show.Cahill set Chelsea on their way, heading in Juan Mata’s corner, before Kalou doubled the lead by slotting home after being found by Torres’ 18th-minute cross.Torres netted midway through the second half with a scuffed shot beyond keeper Kasper Schmeichel after collecting a pass from Meireles.It was hardly a vintage finish from the Spaniard, but it ended his five-month wait for a goal and sent the Stamford Bridge crowd into raptures.Championship side Leicester kept battling and were rewarded with a goal by Jermaine Beckford 13 minutes from the end.Beckford pounced on the rebound after Neil Danns’ shot bounced back off the post.But Chelsea’s two-goal cushion was restored by Torres’ glancing near-post header from Meireles’ corner.Leicester substitute Ben Marshall then scored the best goal of the game, smashing an unstoppable effort into the top corner with two minutes left.There was still time for Chelsea to score a fifth – and man of the moment Torres was again involved, unselfishly teeing up Meireles to fire home.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

UMD welcome in Kohl Center

first_imgThe women\’s hockey team will face the UMD Bulldogs this weekend, a team it is very familiar with.[/media-credit]After a two week road trip, the women’s hockey team is back on home ice, getting ready to face division rival Minnesota-Duluth. Despite their struggles this year, the Badgers feel as if things are really coming together — they just need to be more consistent in finishing their games.The team has been dominant for stretches on the ice, consistently outshooting its opponents, but has not been able to walk away with as many wins as they hoped for. UW interim head coach Tracey DeKeyser thinks that the home stand against Duluth is timed perfectly.“I know we’ve had some trouble scoring,” DeKeyser said, “But if you look at the dominance of the play or the number of shots taken per game, it’s pretty clear that we should feel confident in the direction we’re going and people have stepped up and made contributions. I just think it’s a great time to be matched up with Minnesota-Duluth.”Bringing home two wins, a tie and a loss, the Badgers are still working toward the success they had at home last year.While the confidence is high, Wisconsin knows it has to face a talented Duluth team. The Bulldogs are fierce competitors and sit in second place in the WCHA, one spot ahead of the Badgers.“They’re speedy [and] they’re skilled,” DeKeyser said. “We need to make sure we hone in on particular individuals as we line up … and see what they have in store for us.”Wisconsin has a 9-5-2 overall record (6-4-0 in the WCHA), and outshot its opponents this season 565 to 391. Despite the advantage in shot, UW has been unable to consistently get the puck in the net more often to seal wins.With all of their dominating factors, the Badgers still have a record that does not seem to support their statistics. DeKeyser feels the problems fall in Wisconsin’s inability to consistently finish games as strong as they start them.“I’m not sure if it’s consistency or just finishing,” DeKeyser said. “We’re doing the right things. If you count the number of scoring chances for each game and the number of shots on net, it’s too bad we haven’t been able to put the puck in.“I don’t want the players to get discouraged simply because we haven’t been finishing, but that is our focal point.”The rivalry between the Bulldogs and the Badgers is intense — UW defeated UMD for the 2007 national title but fell to them in the title game the next year. While they sit in second and third in the conference, respectively, both teams carry formidable rosters that will provide an even match up. No extra motivation is needed to get Wisconsin ready for the series.“I’m quite sure there will be no need to try and motivate the players for this particular series,” DeKeyser said. “They understand the importance of these games and they know this opponent is a highly skilled opponent … I think it’ll be a wide-open game and playing on the big ice that should be fun to watch more so than trying to attack four people in front of their net. Hopefully that’ll be good for our players.”Kelter twins in lineupWith the soccer season over after an exciting run in the NCAA tournament, freshmen Alev and Derya Kelter finally take their places in the Badgers lineup. Although the team has had only a short amount of time to see what they can do, DeKeyser feels the girls have a lot of potential. The coach has already seen it from Alev Kelter.“True to form, kind of like her soccer game, [Alev] is a physical presence out there. She can go into the corner against two opponents and come up with the puck. We know she can do that, we’ve seen her play for the past couple of years and that’s why she got the nod and got some playing time this [past] weekend.”last_img read more

Syracuse running back Smith reaches 1,000-yard mark; Nassib finishes regular season with stellar performance

first_img Published on November 25, 2012 at 1:34 pm Contact Ryne: rjgery@syr.edu PHILADELPHIA — Jerome Smith stood next to Ryan Nassib in the backfield, preparing for another carry as his quarterback waited for the snap. Then, as he has consistently in Syracuse’s final six games of the regular season, Smith trudged forward for 5 yards and a first down.The 5-yard run was different, though. Smith surpassed the 1,000-yard mark for the season, extending SU’s streak to five straight years with a back to reach the milestone.“I told Jerome Smith at the beginning of the season that if he didn’t give me 1,000 yards he was going to be in for it,” SU offensive tackle Justin Pugh said, joking after Syracuse’s 38-20 win on Friday. “He played great, all our running backs are running hard and it’s just good to see him get 1,000 yards.”Curtis Brinkley started the run in 2008, Delone Carter achieved the mark in 2009 and 2010, and Antwon Bailey continued it last season. Smith, who got off to a slow start this season, came on strong and capped the 2012 regular season with a 96-yard day against Temple on Friday, giving him a total of 1,019.Syracuse’s regular-season finale also saw senior wide receiver Alec Lemon haul in five passes for 74 yards to pass the 1,000-yard mark. He became the program’s first receiver to accomplish the feat since Marvin Harrison in 1995.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSmith and Lemon also became the first SU teammates to rush for 1,000 yards and register 1,000 yards receiving in the same season since Michael Owens and wide receivers coach Rob Moore did so in 1989.Smith, who was banged up going into the game, said he was motivated by more than just the yards he needed to achieve the milestone on Friday.“You got a whole team and you got seniors that put a lot into this,” Smith said. “You put away your little minor injuries for those guys.”Nassib finishes regular season with solid performance in homecomingRyan Nassib ran to the sidelines, straight for his senior wide receiver Marcus Sales. The calm quarterback grabbed Sales and gave him a shove, fired up after the two connected for a 24-yard touchdown to get Syracuse on the board.Nassib led the Orange 75 yards down the field in just six plays spanning 1:44. Sales’ juggling catch over Temple defensive back Anthony Robey cut the Owls’ lead to three and jumpstarted the SU offense.Though the Syracuse running game powered the offense, Nassib turned in another solid performance playing in front of family and friends about 45 minutes from his hometown of West Chester, Pa.“I knew this was going to be an emotional game for me coming back home, so I made sure that myself and a lot of the other Philly guys got on everybody else,” Nassib said. “Because maybe it didn’t mean as much to them because this isn’t their hometown, but we made sure we were on them.”The senior quarterback finished 16-of-28 for 215 yards and the one touchdown in his team’s 38-20 victory at Lincoln Financial Field. Nassib managed the game and came through on third downs to extend drives on a day in which Syracuse rumbled for 260 yards on the ground.But for much of the season, the quarterback has been at the center of the Orange’s explosive new spread offense. He’s thrown for 3,619 yards and 24 touchdowns while completing 63 percent of his passes.And after the final regular-season game of his career, Nassib reflected on what he feels his mark on the program will be.“I think one of the things we’ll leave is this system for the guys behind us,” Nassib said. “Because if you get the right weapons and the right offensive line, this offense is pretty dangerous.”SU finishes season on a roll, looks ahead to bowl gameWith five wins in its final six games, Syracuse is playing with confidence as it heads into the postseason. As the rest of the nation finishes up the regular season next week, SU will wait to learn its bowl fate.SU also remains alive for a share of the Big East championship along with Rutgers and Louisville. The team needs the Cardinals to defeat the Scarlet Knights in their matchup to earn that title.After a collapse in 2011 and a 2-4 start this season, though, the Orange coaches and players are just looking forward to another game in December or January.“It feels great,” Lemon said. “Like I said, our last regular-season game, getting that and having momentum going into the bowl game to win our last couple games is great.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
