The investigation by the fund’s own finance director Tom Kåla found that regulations on management’s fringe benefits had not been detailed enough on all aspects and said a review of them is necessary.On Wednesday, Keva chairwoman Laura Räty told a press conference: “[Keva’s] guidelines for fringe benefits are not sufficient. Where guidelines exist, they have not always been followed. Good corporate governance has not been followed in all situations.”Kåla said the current regulations, for example, did not clearly define which matters Keva’s board should decide on, or which were subject to the managing director’s decision.Kåla’s report noted that policies on fringe benefit flats and cars need to be revamped.According to him, current guidelines on deciding the price of a fringe benefit residence or refurbishing fringe benefit flats are insufficient.In the future, actions and decisions on these issues also need to be recorded and documented.There should also be more effective communication between accountants and internal audits and Keva’s board.Keva’s budget will be revamped, and operational costs will be presented in a more detailed and transparent manner.For example, costs incurring from purchases, representational costs and travel costs will all have to be declared and explained in more detail – an issue that obviously played a significant role in the scandal of last month.In a mutual statement released Wednesday, Keva’s board said: “There is also a need to develop leadership culture and atmosphere at Keva by other means than just instructions and rules.“Fairness, openness and transparency should be visible in the everyday work of the whole organisation. The management of the institution, in particular, has to run the institution in an exemplary manner, uphold the right attitude and maintain its commitment to the values that guide the institution.”The fund will embark on reforming its management guidelines in January 2014.Keva’s board has set a separate, six-member working group consisting of its management and a representative of its scheme members, to prepare for the reform with a deadline before the board meeting of March 2014.New rules for the scheme’s management will come into force over next year.“Keva’s board is monitoring the progress of this work,” Räty added.“The working group can use an external consultant for this project.” The board of Keva, the €35.3bn local government pension institution of Finland, has admitted its management did not follow good practises in corporate governance in the previous running of the scheme.Keva insures 1.3m Finns working or having retired from jobs at the local government, the state and the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland.In November, a scandal rocked the scheme when Finnish media accused Keva’s then-managing director Merja Ailus of charging the institution for some of her personal expenses, failing to inform the tax office of the full value of her employee-sponsored flat and receiving child benefits from two countries simultaneously.The crisis led to Ailus’s resignation and the launch of an investigation on Keva’s management culture.

The ABS CBN is facing a quo warranto petition at the Supreme Court (SC) over what government lawyers claimed were its “highly abusive practices” that allegedly violated its legislative franchise. “By necessary implication, such power of Congress also includes the power to prescribe the rights of a franchisee applicant pending final determination of the renewal of its franchise by the Congress,” he added. The ABS-CBN has not violated any corporate laws and has regularly paid its taxes for the past years, the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) said. Guevarra, whom the NTC asked for a legal opinion on the ABS-CBN case, said Congress may allow the NTC to issue a “provisional authority” for the network’s continued operations until Congress could act on the franchise renewal bills. MANILA – Department of Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra clarified that ABS-CBN’s franchise will expire in May 4 this year, contrary to earlier reports that the network will close at the end of March without a new franchise. Meanwhile, Guevarra said that Congress may authorize the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) to allow ABS-CBN to continue operating if its franchise would expire before lawmakers could act on its application for renewal. “The grant of a franchise is an exercise of sovereign power and under our Constitution, that power is vested in the Congress,” Guevarra said. “It is therefore respectfully submitted that the Congress, by concurrent resolutions, may authorize the National Telecommunications Commission to issue a provisional authority subject to such terms and conditions as the NTC may deem fit to ABS-CBN and other entities who are similarly situated, authorizing them to continue operating subject to the Congress’ eventual disposition of the renewal application,” Guevarra said. SEC Commissioner Ephyro Luis Amatong, meanwhile, also said that there was no violation or ongoing complaint against ABS-CBN before the corporate regulator./PN The ABS-CBN network has earlier denied accusations lodged on social media that it has not been paying its dues. ABS-CBN has secured a tax clearance certificate from the BIR for 2019. While the law was enacted on March 30, 1995, the franchise was only published on April 19, 1995, the Justice chief added, making the network’s franchise expiration date at May 4, 2020. “Considering there is no more franchise, since it has already lapsed, then we can withdraw the provisional authority anytime, but subject to conditions,” NTC Commissioner Gamaliel Cordoba said. Drilon said the authority should not be administrative in nature such that it could be withdrawn anytime “because of its implications on press freedom, on editorial content, of the franchise holder.” Guevarra said during the Senate hearing on the network’s franchise that, under Republic Act No. 7966, the law that granted the company license to operate for 25 years, became effective 15 days from the date of its publication in 1995. The House of Representatives has not yet acted on bills seeking the network’s franchise renewal even as the expiry of its existing license looms and several bills filed. Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon then asked the NTC if a provisional authority to operate could be withdrawn anytime. The BIR initially did not release the network’s tax payments due to privacy laws but later disclosed that the network paid P14.398 billion from 2016 to 2019, which excludes income taxes paid by ABS-CBN artists, employees, and talents. Representatives from the BIR and SEC said during the Senate hearing on Monday that the network has been compliant with regulations, contrary to allegations lodged against the network. “They are regularly filing and paying their taxes for the past number of years,” Simplicio Cabantac, Jr., head of a unit of the BIR Large Taxpayers Service. Guevarra cited PT&T, Smart Communications Inc., and the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines Inc. as examples of entities that were “allowed to operate despite expired franchises as long as the application for the renewal of these franchises was lodged with the Congress before the lapse of their term.”
Published on November 2, 2018 at 2:25 pm Contact Matt: firstname.lastname@example.org Comments Editor’s note: On Tuesday, the first College Football Playoff rankings of the season listed Syracuse as No. 19. The Daily Orange will reflect the rankings of the College Football Playoff and not the Associated Press for the remainder of the season.No. 22 Syracuse (6-2, 3-2 Atlantic Coast) visits Wake Forest (4-4, 1-3) in Winston-Salem, North Carolina on Saturday afternoon. The Orange is coming off of its first-ranked win of the season, a 51-41 victory over then-No. 22 North Carolina State. The win elevated Syracuse into the AP Top-25 for the first time since 2001 and earned the Orange the No. 19 ranking in the ESPN College Football Playoff Rankings.Here’s what to know before Saturday’s matchup.All-time series: Syracuse leads 4-3Last time they played: Syracuse hosted the Demon Deacons in its first home contest since toppling No. 2 Clemson. Without starter Eric Dungey, backup Zack Mahoney filled in admirably, throwing for 384 yards and three touchdowns, but he did cough up two crucial interceptions. In this game, Wake Forest’s offense couldn’t be stopped. After Syracuse took a 38-24 halftime lead, the Demon Deacons scored 40 second-half points to SU’s five. Wake Forest’s 64 points were the most ever by a Syracuse opponent inside the Carrier Dome. Senior quarterback John Wolford decimated the Orange with 499 yards of offense and six total touchdowns to lead Wake Forest over SU 64-43.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Wake Forest report: The Wake Forest offense, as usual, is built upon its run game. The Demon Deacons go with two backs game in and game out with Matt Colburn II and Cade Carney with Colburn slightly out-touching Carney. Both though have proven more than capable, averaging over five yards per carry.In the passing game, Sam Hartman has tried to fill the void left by John Wolford at the end of last season. Although he hasn’t matched Wolford’s production, Hartman, one of the top quarterbacks in the class of 2018, has filled in nicely, completing 55 percent of his passes for 213 yards per game and 14 touchdownsWhere the Demon Deacons really struggle is defensively. Wake Forest gives up 287 passing yards per game to its opponents and score 36.8 points per game. The key factor in this Wake Forest scoring defense is its inability to stop teams in the red zone. While Wake Forest scores a touchdown 58 percent of the time it reaches the red zone, its opponents are successful 95 percent of the time, scoring on 20 of 21 red zone drives this season, something Syracuse does not do all that well. The Wake Forest defense is littered with injuries, so people with little experience have been thrust into big-time situations all year long and have struggled to catch up.How Syracuse beats Wake: Syracuse needs to open the game hot. Both defenses struggle in the area that their opponent succeeds. Syracuse can’t stop the run and Wake Forest has two capable backs that do most of their damage out of run-pass options, which have burned SU badly this year. And Wake struggles to stop the pass due to injuries in the secondary and simply poor coverage.Eric Dungey needs to come out firing the way he did against North Carolina State, connecting on downfield throws, moving the offense quickly, and finding players like Sean Riley and Nykeim Johnson out across the middle. Colburn and Carney will likely have a field day against the SU run defense, so the way to get the ball out of their hands is to score early, build a hefty lead, and maintain possession.Wake Forest has turned the ball over in every game but one, meanwhile SU has the best turnover differential in the ACC. That should tell the story of the game. Who can score first and who can win the turnover battle.Player to watch: Matt Colburn II, running back, No. 22Colburn showed what he is capable of last week when he torched Louisville for 243 yards and three touchdowns. Up until that point, Colburn had actually struggled for the greater part of the year, only breaking 5o-plus yards twice, once against Florida State with 71, and once Boston College with 117. But the senior is a strong runner who can do damage out of the backfield running, catching and blocking. He’ll be the go-to guy for Wake come Saturday’s contest. Facebook Twitter Google+
In this Jan. 8, 2014, file photo, then-Cleveland Cavaliers forward Luol Deng talks with reporters after practice in Independence, Ohio. Atlanta Hawks general manager Danny Ferry has been disciplined by CEO Steve Koonin for making racially charged comments about Luol Deng when the team pursued the free agent this year. (AP Photo/Mark Duncan, File)ATLANTA (AP) – The Atlanta Hawks cancelled a scheduled meeting between their CEO and city civil rights leaders Wednesday, prompting one of the group’s leaders to say his community was greatly offended.The Rev. Markel Hutchins said the meeting with CEO Steve Koonin was called off “at the last minute.” He later said he received a call from Hawks spokesman Garin Narain on Tuesday night asking the appointment be postponed.Hutchins said he needed to hear that request from Koonin, and because Koonin didn’t personally cancel the meeting, the group of 12 civil rights leaders showed up as planned.When they entered Philips Arena and were told there would be no meeting, Hutchins and the other leaders said they were insulted.“The entire civil rights community, locally and nationally, have been offended, the likes of which we have not seen in this community in decades,” Hutchins said.The group asked for the meeting to discuss what Hutchins said was the Hawks’ “disrespect for people of color.” The request followed racially charged comments by Hawks co-owner Bruce Levenson and general manager Danny Ferry.In a statement Wednesday, the Hawks asked for patience from the community and said they want to reschedule the meeting.“Koonin postponed today’s meeting last night,” the Hawks’ statement said. “This conversation is a priority for us. We are committed to having this meeting and will work with community leaders to reschedule as soon as possible. We ask our community to work with us, be patient with us, and help us heal.”The Hawks did not say why the meeting was cancelled.Levenson said Sunday he will sell his majority share of the team. Koonin said Tuesday Ferry has been punished but won’t be fired.Hutchins said when he arranged the meeting with Koonin on Monday night, he made it clear the group wanted Ferry to lose his job.“Perhaps one of the reasons why they cancelled the meeting is we made it very clear we were going to demand in our conversations that Danny Ferry be fired or resign,” Hutchins said. “There is no way that a man who uses the kind of language and holds the kind of sentiments that he does should be the general manager of the basketball team in the home of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the cradle of the civil rights movement.”Others also have called for Ferry to be fired. Former NBA great Magic Johnson said late Tuesday on his Twitter feed “Atlanta Hawks GM Danny Ferry should step down after making racist statements about NBA player Luol Deng.”Deng and Ferry are former Duke players under Mike Krzyzewski, who is coaching the U.S. team at the World Cup. Krzyzewski said he couldn’t comment on the controversy involving his former players because he hasn’t followed the news.Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau, serving as an assistant on the U.S. team, defended Deng on Wednesday.“I’ve never been around a better person,” Thibodeau said. “He’s not only a great basketball player, he’s an even better person. I’ll stand by Luol any day. He’s good. He’s done a lot of great things in the community. He’s a great human being. He’s a very humble guy. He has a lot of integrity. I can’t say enough good things about him. … It was a privilege for me to be his coach.”Thibodeau said he “can’t imagine” why Ferry made the statements.Ferry made inflammatory comments about Deng in a conference call with the Hawks’ ownership group in June when the team pursued Deng as a free agent. Ferry described Deng as someone who “has a little African in him.”Deng, who was born in what is now South Sudan, now plays for the Miami Heat. He responded to Ferry’s comment on Tuesday by saying, “I’m proud to say I actually have a lot of African in me, not just ‘a little.’”A letter from co-owner Michael Gearon Jr. to Levenson recommended that Ferry resign or be fired. Gearon said Ferry made that description of Deng to the team’s ownership group.Gearon’s June 12 letter to Levenson said Ferry went on to say, “Not in a bad way, but he’s like a guy who would have a nice store out front and sell you counterfeit stuff out of the back.”Added Gearon: “Ferry completed the racial slur by describing the player (and impliedly all persons of African descent) as a two-faced liar and cheat.”___AP Basketball Writer Brian Mahoney in Barcelona, Spain contributed to this report.
The Hurricanes wing, who dislocated his right shoulder in the first half of the All Blacks’ 25-24 win over the Springboks in Cape Town earlier this month, has started his road to recovery after an operation this week.Milner-Skudder had his labrum, rotator cuff, supraspinatus and infraspinatus muscles and his bicep tendon repaired during the surgery.The 26-year-old turned to Facebook to update fans on his recovery.”Rehab/ recovery should be around 6-7 months, however first stage is a couple weeks’ rest while the wounds heal and then go from there,” he wrote online.”I have learnt from past injuries to not worry about what is out of my control, take it one step at a time and focus on the “here&now”. Combine those with a relentless drive to come back stronger and I know I’ve got this.”Milner-Skudder is no stranger to the recovery process. After breaking out for the All Blacks at the 2015 Rugby World Cup, a season which earned him World Rugby’s breakthrough player of the year award, Milner-Skudder spent most of the 2016 season sidelined with a similar operation on his left shoulder which he dislocated while playing for the Hurricanes.He returned to the field this season only to pick up a foot injury which meant another lengthy stint on the sidelines. He missed the All Blacks squad to play the British and Irish Lions, turning out for the Hurricanes and New Zealand Maori against the tourists instead.Milner-Skudder was then recalled to the All Blacks for the Rugby Championship, but missed out on the first couple of tests and was released to play for Manawatū in provincial rugby.He got a call-up to the starting side to face Argentina in New Plymouth and impressed enough to warrant starts in the two tests against South Africa.Milner-Skudder has 11 tests to his name and has scored 11 tries.He is contracted to New Zealand Rugby and the Hurricanes until 2019.
One week after the Guyana Public Service Union (GPSU) had reported that on several occasions during last month thieves have raided its headquarters, a security guard attached to that entity was on Monday jailed for 36 months for the incident.GPSU Headquarters at Shiv Chanderpaul Drive and Regent Road, GeorgetownThirty-seven-year-old Dwayne Allen of Lot 36 West Front Road, Ruimveldt, Georgetown, appearing before Senior Magistrate Judy Latchman, admitted that between July 27th and July 30th, 2018, he broke and entered the Headquarters of the GPSU at Lot 160 Regent Road and Shiv Chanderpaul Drive, Georgetown, and stole items to the total value of $980,660.According to the Prosecution’s case, the office was secured by employees who subsequently left the premises in the security care of the accused Allen, who was employed as a security guard.Reports are that after the employees had left, Allen burgled the building and carted off the items, leaving the building unattended.The court heard that closed circuit television (CCTV) footage showed Allen, accompanied by another male, breaking into the building. The father of three was later arrested and charged.The prosecution further noted that none of the stolen items was recovered.Before handing down sentence, Magistrate Latchman told the accused, “Even if you were working for a cent, you were employed with the organisation and you chose to steal from them. That was a bad thing.”Alen will be spending the next 36 months in prison.Earlier last week, at a press conference, GPSU president, Patrick Yarde, had said the robberies began on July 16, when a significant amount of cash was stolen from the accounts department.He noted that on July 27, an undisclosed sum of cash had been withdrawn from a city bank to be used to reimburse workers for travelling purposes, among other things, since the GPSU had been expected to host an executive meeting with members from all parts of the country.Following discovery of the missing cash, the Police were notified.The Union’s troubles did not end there, however, as thieves again entered the Union’s office and carted off a flat screen Sony television.“The security (rank) that left at seven (19:00hrs) indicated that he (had) left the television downstairs, and he (had) handed it over to the other security, but when he came back, the security was missing and the television downstairs was missing,” Yarde informed.Police were again summoned on the following Monday morning, yet another robbery had occurred. This time, the thieves carted off another Sony television and documents.Yarde said the thieves had again attempted to open the Union’s safe, as well as gain access to other offices. Damaged door edges shown to the media substantiated the GPSU story.Yarde said he believes the criminals have inside information. “To get to my office, you have got to go through three doors; and it is amazing how precise the things people are going for. How could somebody go to a cabinet… As a matter of fact, we are even looking to see what inside information may prevail…”The union’s president noted that, after the first incident, there had been no upgrade to the GPSU security systems, although surveillance cameras were purchased. The cameras, he had said, would soon be installed.
0Shares0000Lionel Messi’s inspirational performance for Barcelona was described as the norm for the Argentine by Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino © IKIMAGES/AFP / Ian KINGTONLONDON, United Kingdom, Oct 4 – Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino lauded Lionel Messi’s consistent brilliance after the Argentine dealt a huge blow to Spurs’ Champions League hopes with a double in Barcelona’s 4-2 win at Wembley on Wednesday.Messi also hit the woodwork twice in a virtuoso display as Barca bounced back from a three-game winless run in La Liga to move alongside Inter Milan at the top of Group B with maximum points from two games. Spurs, by contrast, have lost both of their opening two fixtures and have a mountain to climb to reach the last 16.“He’s a fantastic player. The most important (thing) is Messi shows in every game why he is Messi,” said Pochettino.“His average performance is this type of game. He’s always above everything.”Spurs battled back bravely in the second-half with goals from Harry Kane and Erik Lamela twice reducing Barcelona’s lead to a solitary goal.But Pochettino lamented Philippe Coutinho’s second-minute opener when Spurs captain and goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was caught out of position on his first appearance after a five-week injury layoff.“When you start 1-0 down from the changing room that is difficult for the players,” added Pochettino.“The players understand this type of game when you play at this level, it is so difficult to come back.“The most important (thing) is the character we showed.”Coutinho described playing alongside Messi as an “honour” as Barca again came away from Wembley with happy memories having won the European Cup twice at the home of English football in 1992 and 2011.“Everything Messi does on the field is unpredictable,” said the Brazilian.“To play with him is an honour. He’s always doing something new.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
