Est d’Ucraina: Compagnia europea Flame SA paga a gli guerriglieri

KIEV, 08-Nov-2016 — /EPR GOVERNMENT NEWS/ — “Giornalisti contro la corruzzione e illegittimità” – un gruppo di giornalisti-investigatori Ucraini – ha comunicato dei documenti compromettenti che si sono trovati a loro disposizione e confermano la collaborazione della compagnia europea Flame SA con La Repubblica Popolare di Donetsk (RPD) – organizzazione a riconoscimento limitato che ha preso la territoria al Est d’Ucraina sotto suo controllo.

Il documento sopracennato è un contratto a consegna di 72 000 tonnellate di carbone tra Flame SA e la miniera “Jdanivska” che si trova nel territorio non controllato al Est d’Ucraina. Questo territorio, anche come tutte le imprese localizzate, sono conrollati dai ribelli filorussi della stessa RPD. Intanto, tali relazioni commerciali devono essere regolati proprio dalla legislazione Ucraina: l’impresa, anche stando al territorio non controllato, deve pagare le tasse al bilancio statale, poiché è registrata al territorio d’Ucraina e si trova li stesso.
Però, dopo l’inizio di azioni militari nel 2014, molte compagnie della regione hanno dichiarato della nuova registrazione, iniziando a pagare le tasse al bilancio della autodichiarata RPD.

Praticamente, questo è il diritto finanziameno degli guerriglieri. In mezzo a tali “sponsor” – la sopracennata miniera “Jdanivska” che a sua volta riceveva i soldi dalla europea Flame SA.

A quale base la Flame SA acquistava il carbone proprio in questa miniera e perché non ha trovato una fonte alternativa per le consegne di questa materia prima – resta l’incognita. I rappresentanti della compagnia non hanno risposto ne a una domanda dei giornalisti ucraini.

Tra le altre cose, il sito web della Flame SA è inaccessibile, per questo non risulta possibile avere dei commeti ufficiali della compagnia su quest’affare.

Il Servizio di Sicurezza d’Ucraina (SSU) si è già interessato del fatto del presente contratto – per adesso solo nella parte di rinvio a giudizio penale del direttore della miniera “Jdanivska”, il signore Ruslan Dubovskiy. È accusato di esecuzione delle operazioni illegali d’esportazione con Flame SA e una serie di altre compagnie allo scopo di “fininziamento del terrorismo” (clausola 258-5, parte 1 del Codice Criminale d’Ucraina). Al presente, l’indagine del SSU su quest’affare continua.

Ma non è l’unico “buco” della compagnia Flame SA. Secondo i dati dei giornalisti ucraini, la compagnia in violazione delle sanzioni internazionali ha dei rapporti commerciali con un’altra miniera – “Zarechnaya”, che si trova nella Federazione Russa. Questa miniera è l’attivo della compagnia “Uralvagonzavod” che a sua volta sta nella lista delle compagnie sottomesse alle sanzioni degli Stati Uniti e Unione Europea.

Flame SA e le sue filiali F-Chem SA e Brando International sono situati allo stesso indirizzo in Svizzera. L’attività principale della compagnia è la ricerca e consegna del carbone energetico, coke di petrolio e coke mettallurgico. Flame SA esercita commercio in tutto il mondo, il suo capitale impiegabile è 1 milione di franchi svizzeri. E non è una sorpresa, considerando i volumi degli acquisti e il profitto ricevuto.

La société européenne «Flame SA» paye aux rebelles de l’Est de l’Ukraine

KIEV, 08-Nov-2016 — /EPR GOVERNMENT NEWS/ — «Les journalistes contre la corruption et l’illégalité», un groupe de journalistes enquêteurs ukrainiens, a signalé des documents compromettants dont on avait saisi, qui témoignent de la collaboration de la société européenne «Flame SA» avec la République populaire de Donetsk (RPD), l’organisation non reconnue qui avait pris contrôle du territoire de l’Est de l’Ukraine.

Le document susmentionné est un contrat pour la fourniture de 72 000 tons de charbon conclu entre «Flame SA» et la mine «Zhdanivska» située sur le territoire incontrôlé à l’Est de l’Ukraine. Ce territoire, aussi que toutes les entreprises se trouvant sur lui, est contrôlé par les insurgés pro-russes de cette RPD. Pourtant, c’est la législation ukrainienne qui doit réglementer toutes relations commerciales comme ça : même les entreprises sur le territoire incontrôlé sont obligées à payer ses impôts au budget de l’Etat, étant immatriculées et situées sur le territoire de l’Ukraine.

Néanmoins, beaucoup de sociétés en cette région du pays ont déclaré leur «réimmatriculation» après le début des hostilités en 2014 pour payer leurs impôts au budget de la RPD autoproclamée. En fait, c’est un financement direct des rebelles. La mine «Zhdanivska», qui a reçu de l’argent à son tour de la société européenne «Flame SA», est parmi ces «sponsors».

Reste à savoir à quel titre «Flame SA» a choisi cette mine pour se procurer du charbon et pourquoi on n’a pas trouvé de source alternative de matière. Aucune demande des journalistes ukrainiens a été répondue par les représentants de la société.

Cependant, le site web de «Flame SA» est indisponible, ce qui rend impossible l’obtention de quelconques commentaires officiels sur ce marché par la société.

Le contrat a déjà capté l’attention du Service de Sécurité d’Ukraine (SSU), jusqu’à présent seulement au niveau de la traduction en justice du directeur de la mine «Zhdanivska» Ruslan Dubovsky. Il est accusé d’avoir effectué des exportations illégales à «Flame SA» ainsi qu’à un nombre d’autres sociétés afin de «financer le terrorisme» (article 258-5, paragraphe 1 du Code pénal de l’Ukraine). L’enquête du SSU sur l’affaire se poursuit jusqu’à aujourd’hui.

Et pourtant, ce n’est pas le seul faux pas de «Flame SA». D’après les journalistes ukrainiens, la société a également des relations commerciales, en contournant les sanctions internationales, avec une autre mine, «Zarechnaya», qui se trouve dans la Fédération de Russie. Cette mine représente un actif de l’entreprise «Uralvagonzavod» inscrite sur la liste des compagnies et des entreprises sanctionnées par les Etats-Unis et l’Union Européenne.

«Flame SA» et ses filiales «F-Chem SA» et «Brando International», elles toutes ont la même adresse suisse. L’activité principale de la société est la recherche et la livraison de charbon de chaudière, de coke de pétrole et de coke métallurgique. «Flame SA» fait du commerce à travers le monde, son capital libre s’élevant à un million de francs suisses. Rien d’étonnant, étant donné le volume des achats et les montants recueillis.

24.09.2012 Germany will not increase Eurozone rescue fund

According to the press service of the German Finance Ministry, it is unreal to increase the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) four times – from 500 billion to two trillion euros. This denial was a response to the article in Der Spiegel about the negotiations on this issue, and Germany has already spoken for the ESM increase.

Martin Kotthaus, the representative of the German Ministry of Finance in Brussels, said there were talks going on in Brussels about leveraging the capacity of the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) in the same way as its predecessor, the European Financial Stability Fund (EFSF). But, asked about a report in the German media, that the ESM’s capacity could be 4 times leveraged to 2 trillion euros through the intervention of the private sector, he said this was “illusory”. “It is not feasible to talk about figures at present,” Kotthaus told reporters. “It is purely abstract.”

ESM treaty was conceived as the euro zone’s permanent bailout fund and will enter into force if it is approved by the Member States representing 90% of eurozone capital subscription at the European Central Bank. The ESM was assumed to come into force on July 1, 2012. But the deadline was postponed due to delays in the ratification procedures in a number of euro zone countries, including Germany, where ESM was first acknowledged by the Constitutional Court.

In September 2012, the German Constitutional Court admitted that the ESM permanent euro-zone bailout fund and fiscal pact ESM European Union (EU) do not contradict the legislation of the country under certain conditions. The German Constitutional Court demanded that German liabilities within the mechanism not exceed 190 billion, without the approval of the lower house of the German parliament. In addition, both houses of the German parliament should be informed of the decisions taken in the ESM.

On September, 14, Eurogroup chair Jean-Claude Juncker announced that the ESM will be operational in October 2012 and will provide the first three tranches of the total 32 billion euros. According to Angel Gurría, Secretary-General of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), Eurozone bailout funds need to be increased to at least €1 trillion as soon as possible. “Greece was the first and most urgent step. But the challenges remain daunting. We need to construct a stronger financial firewall. And this wall must be high, strong, and sufficient enough to deter speculations and must be undebatable in action “- said Angel Gurria.

At the same time, according to a financial advisor Dmitry Chernavski, the ESM increase does not solve the fundamental problems of the debt crisis in Eurozone. The debt crisis in Europe, said Dmitry Chernavski, is just a consequence of the countries with different levels of life and mentality integrating into European Union. “After the clearance of liquid asset the peripheral countries in Europe can no longer offer competitive products to the world market, thus reducing the trade deficit, they cannot create jobs and stabilize the budget”, – says Dmitry Chernavski.

Palestinian Statehood Bid Questioned at UN Headquarters in New York by International Christian Delegation

A group of Christian pastors presented an outline of Bible prophesies to the U.N. relating to the proposal to recognise Palestine this month and the dangerous consequences to the nations. As reported by The Washington Post and The Associated Press in a news release dated Wednesday, August 31, 2011, Israel is resigned to the U.N. General Assembly’s endorsement of a planned Palestinian bid for admission as a state to the United Nations in late September.

Conservative Christians are virtually unanimous in their support for Israel. In mid-August, Yahoo News news.yahoo.com reported that Bible-believing pastors were in New York City to warn U.N. officials concerning the Palestinian’s admission to the United Nations. The group informed officials of the Bible’s strong warnings against dividing the land of Israel. One member of the delegation was quoted as saying“There’s a Jew on the throne of heaven and Israel is his land.”

They have repeated their warnings of the Bible’s declaration of the true owner of the land of Israel and the predicted consequences to the Nations that are involved in dividing Israel. A summation of their beliefs is as follows:

1. God’s ownership of the entire land of Israel is absolute and His conveyance of the land to the Jewish people disallows U.N. authority over Israel.

• God said of Israel, “The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land is mine…” Leviticus 25:23

• God gave it, “To Israel for an everlasting covenant, saying, unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance” “And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee…all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.” Genesis 17:8

2. Granting nation status to the Palestinians defies God’s declaration of ownership and will lead to the following judgments:

• God said that all nations would collectively divide the land of Israel and that the people and nations involved would be judged severely. They used the following Bible verses to support their case: Zechariah 12:3 “…I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.” Joel 3:2 states: “I will also gather all nations …and will plead with them…for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.”

• The Bible also teaches that subsequent to dividing the land of Israel, God will bring the following types of catastrophes and judgments which are revealed in the Prophets and the New Testament:

• Worldwide financial collapse

• Worldwide weather disasters and extreme heat waves

• The greatest earthquake of all time leading to the cities falling

• Worldwide famine with plagues and pestilence

• Armageddon

“For the LORD shall rise up …he shall be wroth…Now therefore be ye not mockers…: for I have heard from the Lord GOD of hosts a consumption, even determined upon the whole earth.” Isaiah 28:21-22

Some have asked how a loving and merciful God could seek to destroy the nations for coming against Israel. The answer they state is that they have rejected The Lord Jesus Christ, referred to in the Bible as the King of the Jews and the ruler of heaven and earth.

• “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.” Matthew 28:18

• “The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath. He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries.” Psalms 110:5-6

Several U.N. staff members agreed that the Bible teaches that Jesus, who paid for the sins of the world with His blood, will return and reign over the whole earth. The delegation quoted the following Biblical verses in the context of Jesus’ offer of mercy and imminent worldwide reign: “And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up…to worship the King, the LORD of hosts…” Zechariah 14:16

Those who recognize their personal sin and ask Jesus for salvation will escape the world-wide judgements. “For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness…” Mark 7:21-22

“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13.

Martha Lane Fox’s ‘Network Nation’ Will Help The Jobless

Internet millionaire Fil Adams Mercer put his support squarely behind the Coalition Government’s plans to get 10 million more Britons to use the internet.

“There were seven million jobs advertised online last year. 900,000 unemployed people do not currently use the internet. It’s a no brainer,” said Mr Adams Mercer, whose online parcel company Parcel2Go has grown to a £16 million business.

Martha Lane Fox, the Government’s ‘digital champion’ and founder of Lastminute.com, intends to have 100% of the British public online by the Olympic year 2012 with her ‘Network Nation’.

The potential savings for Government are obvious if a higher percentage of administrative functions can be performed online.

“We’re not advocating that everyone has a computer at home. There has been so much ICT (information and communication technologies) investment into communities – into schools, into GP surgeries, into libraries. For example, there are 500,000 computers locked up in schools every night. That’s just dumb, especially now, when we need to be sweating our assets as much as we can,” she said.

The Prime Minister said: “We need to ensure that people aren’t being left behind as more and more services and business move online. Promoting digital inclusion is essential for a dynamic modern economy and can help to make government more efficient and effective.”

Northwestern University: Developing Leaders In Public Policy

Northwestern University School of Continuing Studies has launched its second online master’s degree, providing students the opportunity to experience distance learning from Northwestern’s prestigious faculty while maintaining their professional careers.

The Master of Arts in Public Policy and Administration (MPPA) online degree parallels the existing on-campus program’s curriculum and course structure. The online format enables students to engage in the program’s interactive learning environment that encourages active participation with peers and faculty.

The MPPA online degree program is designed for current and aspiring leaders who seek to positively impact society through the development, analysis, or implementation of public policy. The program is taught by current leaders in the field to students who are motivated to apply systematic thinking and pragmatic solutions to contribute to positive and relevant societal outcomes.

“Students in this program will be able to influence and implement policy that will make a direct impact on current and future generations,” said Joel Shapiro, Assistant Dean of Graduate Programs, Northwestern University School of Continuing Studies. “Many are leaders in their profession now and will cultivate their skills to make a difference in society.”

In myriad fields, Northwestern MPPA graduates are not only shaping meaningful policy but they’re providing substantive leadership, applying policy in ways that make a positive difference.

“In public policy you can make a difference on a very large scale. It’s an opportunity to help a whole community, perhaps a whole society,” said Jonathan Schachter, MPPA faculty member. “It sounds idealistic, but it’s true. That’s why I like teaching public policy students. They care about the way the world around them works and about finding ways to make it better.”

New Yorkers To March On Washington For Fair Share Of Stimulus Money

City Council Candidate Aaron Fraser is angry at the way in which New Yorkers are being treated in the Federal stimulus package. He will express his ire by leading a citizen’s march on Capitol Hill on March 28, 2009. Marchers will ask politicians to consider New York’s contribution to the overall health of this nation’s economy, which is vastly out of proportion to what the state is being allocated in the stimulus package.

According to Fraser, “I am gravely concerned that New Yorkers will not get their fair share of the stimulus package. That share should reflect our tremendous contribution to this nation’s economy as well as to the world. We have taken the chitterlings from Capitol Hill for far too long. We want a side of beef. Before bridges to nowhere are built; before greedy politicians fill their coffers with cash for their pet projects; the people of New York, you and I, should demand our fair share.”

New York is the hub of international trade and commerce. Aside from being the largest regional economy in the United States, it is home to over 160 different languages and the largest stock exchange in the world. It has commercial real estate worth $802.4 billion and is home to the seventeenth largest economy in the world. New Yorkers contribute over a trillion dollars to this nation’s GDP, which equates to a little over 9% of its total. The City’s budget is larger than the budgets of forty of the U.S. States, including the two U.S. protectorates. The top 25 Fortune 500 companies have headquarters here, not counting others on the exchange who rank lower but have primary offices here. New York is home to half of the 32 largest Chinese corporations.

Aaron Fraser, an Independence Party of America candidate, is running for New York’s 36th District City Council seat, which represents the Brooklyn-Bedford Stuyvesant community.

As the country’s economic crisis worsens even while the US government pumps billions of dollars into failing banks and industries, another major threat to the nation’s financial stability is going unnoticed

As the country’s economic crisis worsens even while the US government pumps billions of dollars into failing banks and industries, another major threat to the nation’s financial stability is going unnoticed.

A particularly insidious form of pollution called “stray voltage” is impacting the health and agricultural sectors of American life and business, and the financial consequences could be enormous. 

Stray voltage — electrical current that travels through the ground and the infrastructure we all touch every day — has escaped the attention of major media. But its effect on the economy might be just as devastating as errant Wall Street banks, according to one expert.

Russ Allen, author of Electrocution of America: Is Your Utility Company Out to Kill You?, says, “Stray voltage is a massive tax on the American economy because it causes health problems for people and losses in revenue for farms across the country. The cost to the government could be in the billions.”

Mr. Allen also notes, “Because so many Americans are uninsured, and because stray voltage has been shown to exacerbate conditions such as diabetes and multiple sclerosis, the effect on the economy has been massive. The only problem is that no one is noticing.” 

Stray voltage has been deemed dangerous enough in Wisconsin, Michigan and Canada that legislation was introduced in an effort to regulate it. Most of that legislation has not passed and most people don’t know that it likely runs through the pipes of their homes, showers and pools, and that is has killed people, according to Mr. Allen.

In Electrocution of America, Mr. Allen explores the cost of stray voltage to the economy through his own multimillion-dollar lawsuit against Wisconsin Public Service, which he won. 

“I wasn’t the only one affected. This happens all over the place,” says Mr. Allen. 

According to Electrocution of America, stray voltage hurts the economy in the following ways: 

• Increasing hospital visits 
• Loss of work time due to illness
• Fines and lawsuits resulting from stray voltage mishaps
• Decreased production of product on America’s farms

Russ Allen lives outside of Green Bay, Wisconsin, and is a leader in the movement against electrical pollution animals. He won a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against Wisconsin Public Service for the damage they caused because of a poorly designed electrical distribution system.

Dr. Michael W. Cantrell, Sr. the visionary behind The Federal Housing Recovery Plan (FHRP) believes that once enacted, the FHRP will enable the housing industry to recover in less than 24 months from the date of its implementation

Dr. Michael W. Cantrell, Sr. the visionary behind The Federal Housing Recovery Plan (FHRP) believes that once enacted, the FHRP will enable the housing industry to recover in less than 24 months from the date of its implementation. It will allow people who own a primary residential home the opportunity to save their home from foreclosure, ensure that property values will not decline due to the restructuring of loans, and mostly it will protect the everyday citizen and taxpayer from having to foot the bill for a bail-out plan and instead will secure the value of their homes.

The Federal Housing Recovery Plan is designed to bring liquidity to the markets and make at-risk securities more valuable and buyable on the open market; therefore lessening the effect of government involvement. The securities backed by this plan would inevitably yield a 102% increase in face value. Most importantly, it will not drive down the market prices of homes in and around the neighborhoods of people who do not require the assistance of FHRP and they will not be affected by the restructuring of FHRP Mortgages.

A brief example of how FHRP Mortgages will work –

Problem:
An individual or family owes $150,000.00 to their current lender and property values decline by 20% (on average) reducing the value of their property by roughly $30,000.00, and this individual or family cannot effectively pay their mortgage at the current rate of interest, but also cannot refinance their property due to the declining market values. However, they can afford to pay a portion of the mortgage loan payment every month, but that is not enough for their lender.

Solution:
The Government, through the
FHRP would buy this mortgage for .62 on the dollar. This, in turn, would free up the liquidity of the banks or investment firms that otherwise would write off this type of loan to zero dollars; thus allowing funds to flow for the institution to lend more money.

The FHRP Mortgage Representative would negotiate the mortgage payment terms with the homeowner(s) to an amount they could afford monthly enabling them to stay in their home. The original mortgage loan would be back figured to a first lien mortgage that was agreed upon-becoming an FHRP Mortgage.

The difference between the old and new loan amounts would be held by an FHRP Mortgage Bond for up to 15 years with no interest due and be recorded as a second lien on the property. This lien would be required to be paid off when the property is sold or refinanced at or prior to the maturity date.

Conclusion:
The Federal Housing Recovery Plan enables the family to stay in their home, make affordable monthly payments, and not reduce the mortgage amount thus not reducing the value of other homes in their neighborhood.

The new mortgage at the lower negotiated amount now becomes valuable for servicing because the family is consistently paying their mortgage payments. When people are paying on their mortgages, banks and investment firms would be inclined to buy these FHRP Mortgages because they know they are secure.

Dr. Cantrell believes that in 15 years or less the housing market will rise to the point that their property value would also rise above their first and second mortgage liens. The family’s income will rise during this 15 year period also and will allow their credit to cure so they may be able to refinance the FHRP Mortgage and the government held second lien FHRP Mortgage Bond with traditional institutional banks, mortgage bankers… etc.

The second liens will be securitized by United States Savings Bonds. FHRP Mortgage Bonds will be sold to the general public, not companies, for .75 on the dollar. The Treasurer would determine when the bonds would pay out at 100%.

This is a short version of Dr. Cantrell’s plan to bring this country out of its current turmoil and bring the foreclosure rate down to about 1.5%.

Dr. Cantrell has been working in the mortgage industry for almost 20 years starting out as a mortgage broker in 1989, then working his way through the industry closing loans and selling bundles of quality mortgage loans to investment institutions on the secondary mortgage market. While other lending institutions began offering interest only loans and option arms – his company did not, as they knew this new way of lending with a potential negative amortization would lead to disaster in the long term.

Dr. Wald Carum of Almeda University recently had this to say about Dr. Cantrell’s FHRP: “This Plan demonstrates a breadth and depth of knowledge about its subject that can only come from a true outside the box thinker and experienced businessman. Drawing upon his life experience as well as his training as an MBA, Dr. Cantrell has constructed a workable and simple plan to help America out of its current housing crisis. In this nearly unprecedented time of financial turmoil, Dr. Cantrell recognizes that the essence of the problem and the solution lie within the housing market. As Dr. Cantrell succinictly theorizes, “The Federal Housing Recovery Plan is designed to bring liquidity to the markets and make at-risk securities more valuable and buyable on the open market; therefore lessening the effect of government involvement.” The last phrase is key to avoiding a slide into socialism. Dr. Cantrell’s plan maintains the predominance of capitalism and the free market system while allowing “the family to stay in their home, make affordable monthly payments, and not reduce the mortgage amount thus not reducing the value of other homes in their neighborhood.” Congress would do well to give Dr. Cantrell’s plan a thorough consideration and hearing. It makes more sense than anything I’ve read the past two months. I applaud Dr. Cantrell for his excellent efforts, for which he richly deserves his doctorate degree from Almeda University.” Wald Carum, PhD

Dr. Cantrell states “I look at this FHRP as a way to right a wrong. I have been on both sides of the fence. The banks and investment firms got on the wrong side of the fence and we now have to correct it. I offer my extensive knowledge to bringing this back into the right perspective and am very passionate about helping America out of this crisis.”

America is angry. Especially the 90% of people who are able to make their payments on time and are watching the value of their homes continuing to decline due to foreclosures that are selling for .50 on the dollar. This plan will reduce or eliminate declining home values. It will close the Gaps, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and FHA now in place and will bring confidence to the general public that their housing values will remain stable, and their investments, 401Ks and retirement plans that are tied to the financial market will also recover. This is a true recovery plan.

FHRP Mortgage and FHRP Mortgage Bonds must become a reality – our future depends on it. This plan can start working in as little as 90 days. Contact Dr.Michael W. Cantrell, Sr. mcantrell@fhrpmtg.com or visit the website for a free copy www.fhrpmtg.com for more information on this plan that he hopes will get before the right government officials quickly. For a more detailed example or a copy of frequently asked questions please contact Michael Cantrell or his virtual assistant Marie Tucker of Girl Friday Services of Maine at girlfridayservices08@yahoo.com or visit www.fhrpmtg.com.

Dr. Michael W. Cantrell, Sr. has the experience, knowledge and information on exactly how we can turn the troubled housing market into a booming housing market.

Dominic Slingsby, Managing Director of Slingsby, has called for organisations to review their health and safety ahead of the introduction of the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007

Slingsby calls for organisations to take precautions against potential health and safety risks in advance of important changes which are due to be introduced into UK law in 2008.

Dominic Slingsby, Managing Director of Slingsby, has urged employers to ensure that they are completely up to date with current health and safety regulations and that increased efforts are made to protect workers prior to the new Corporate Manslaughter Act in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and Corporate Homicide Act as it will be known in Scotland, being put into force.

Dominic Slingsby stated that it is vital, especially in light of the introduction of the new law that; “Organisations take precautions against potential health and safety risks. With only a small amount of time and effort companies can both protect their employees and safeguard the organisation against prosecution”.

From April 2008 the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 will come into force in the UK, and for the first time, companies and organisations can be prosecuted in the event that serious failures in the management of health and safety result in a fatality. If a jury decides that an organisation neglected health and safety requirements for employees, then it is possible that unlimited fines, remedial orders and publicity orders could be imposed.

The new law is being introduced to help combat the current high numbers of deaths and injuries in the workplace, where according to official statistics; every year more than 200 people are killed and over 30 million working days were lost in 2006 alone to occupational ill health and injury accumulating in a total cost of £30 billion.

A spokesperson for Slingsby said, “Addressing health and safety issues and assessing risks is something that cannot be avoided and can save organisations time and money, it can help reduce employee absence and employee turnover rates, while at the same time reducing the risk of litigation. It is important that organisations regularly review their health and safety management systems and that all possible precautions and preventions are put into place to protect their employees from injury or fatality”.

Political Analyst Earl Ofari Hutchinson Tells What An Obama Presidency Means for America’s Racial and Social ills

Political Analyst Earl Ofari Hutchinson Tells What An Obama Presidency Means for America’s Racial and Social ills

The previously thinkable is possible and that is that Democratic presidential contender Barack Obama could wrest the Democratic presidential nomination and even beyond that the White House. His Iowa showing is proof, says political analyst Earl Ofari Hutchinson, that he can appeal to a wide segment of centrist white voters. An Obama presidency would be a racial step forward in the sense that it shows that millions of Americans can look past race to make a black, especially an exceptional black, their leader.

Unfortunately, it will not show that millions of Americans are yet willing” says Hutchinson, to do the same for the millions of blacks that cram America’s jails and prisons, suffer housing and job discrimination, are trapped in failing public schools in America’s poor, crime ridden inner cities.

Hutchinson will assess:

*Why Obama’s Iowa showing is a historic first
*What’s next for Obama
*Whether black voters will fully embrace Obama
*Whether he can appeal to wide segments of mid-American voters
*Whether an Obama presidency is an antidote for America’s racial and social ills

Earl Ofari Hutchinson is an author and political analyst. His forthcoming book is The Ethnic Presidency: How Race Decides the Race to the White House (Middle Passage Press, February, 2007).
