TPR used enforcement powers 43700 times to tackle pensions noncompliance in Q2

By on September 15, 2019

first_imgThe Pensions Regulator (TPR) used its enforcement powers for pensions auto-enrolment non-compliance 43,700 times between April and June 2018, compared to 35,862 times last quarter, according to research by TPR.Its Compliance and enforcement quarterly bulletin: April-June 2018 report, which provides information on the powers TPR has used, as well as on the cases it has been involved in, also noted that 12,220 fixed penalty notices were issued between April and June 2018, which is a 9.5% increase on the 11,156 fixed penalty notices that were issued last quarter.Since TPR began recording its compliance and enforcement action in July 2012, a total of 55,556 fixed penalty notices, which are fixed £400 fines issued to employers if they do not comply with statutory notices, or if there is sufficient evidence of a breach of law, were issued.The research also found that 2,498 escalating penalty notices had been issued between April and June 2018, out of a 12,037 total between July 2012 and June 2018. An escalating penalty notice is a daily fine between £50 and £10,000, depending on how many employees an organisation has, which is issued when an employer fails to comply with a statutory notice.Between April and June 2018, 27,219 compliance notices, which target auto-enrolment non-compliance of employer duties, were issued; this is the most in any three-month period, and amounts to an average of one compliance notice issued every five minutes. This creates a total of 124,825 compliance notices between July 2012 and June 2018.A total of 1,495 unpaid contribution notices were issued in April to June 2018; these remedy a late or non-payment due to a qualifying pension scheme. From July 2012 to June 2018, 7,487 unpaid contribution notices were issued.The report also confirmed that TPR used its powers to take action against trustees 25 times between April and June 2018 for failing to complete a scheme return on time. TPR used its information gathering powers 31 times between April and June 2018 and 162 trustees were appointed to run schemes and protect members’ benefits.Nicola Parish, executive director of frontline regulation at TPR, said: “Our actions over the quarter demonstrate how we are continuing to develop as an organisation to be clearer, quicker and tougher. We’re using powers for the first time and working closely with other organisations to better protect members of pension schemes.”last_img read more

The Twilight Zone premiere makes my standup comedy nightmares too real

By on September 10, 2019

first_img Share your voice The Twilight Zone’s inaugural episode stars Kumail Nanjiani as a comic who kills it on stage. CBS All Access Warning: Twilight Zone spoilers ahead.Performing on stage as a stand-up comedian can feel like you’re in your own version of The Twilight Zone. If your jokes aren’t getting laughs, audience members will stare at you like cocktail-saturated zombies. Worse, you get heckled by a jerk trying to impress his friends. When you start to bomb behind the microphone, you’ll do anything for a laugh. And when that happens, who knows how it’ll end up.Stand-up comedy with a chilling twist is the subject of the first episode of the reimagined Twilight Zone from filmmaker Jordan Peele (Us), available to watch on CBS All Access starting April 1. (Disclosure: CBS is CNET’s parent company).This first episode, The Comedian, follows struggling comic Samir (played by Kumail Nanjiani) as he dies on stage night after night. Samir refuses to give up his boring jokes about the US Constitution because he thinks his routine has moral substance. 0 Tags What if a joke could turn into a weapon of mass destruction — ridding your life of every ex who broke your heart, every internet troll who insulted you, every heckler who ruined your moment in the spotlight? The revenge fantasies of a stand-up comic are never-ending, but they often backfire.I never joked away my dog, but I did joke away a job. I did an entire stand-up routine about a boss at my day job who was condescending to me in meetings, took credit for my ideas and treated me like an intern. Plus he wore a very comical toupee.I put all of those into my act and got some of the best laughs of my comedy career, but word got back to him that I had was making fun of him night after night in a comedy club, and before I knew it I was fired.In this Twilight Zone a more extreme version of the Butterfly Effect occurs when Samir starts to focus his jokes on his girlfriend’s life and ends up ruining her future. In the end, he must choose between love or laughs. If you’ve ever thought about doing stand-up but were afraid of what might happen, this episode should give you extra encouragement. My life has been richer for taking the stand-up comedy plunge. I’m a lot less scared about putting myself out there — on stage and off. Comedy can bring out the best in you, if you let it.While real life as a comic can be scary, it’s not quite as horrifying as The Twilight Zone. You might not kill it on stage, but at least your jokes won’t actually kill anyone in the audience. 50 Photos More Twilight Zone This might seem like an unlikely setup for a comedian, but I’ll be the first to admit it’s all too real. When I’m not writing articles for CNET, I do stand-up comedy at nightclubs, cafes, laundromats, bingo halls — anywhere there’s a microphone and a captive audience.I’ve fallen into the trap of using the same jokes because I thought they were socially important. But if the audience doesn’t want to hear your Harry Potter angle on pro football or your ideas on how to make the proposed US border wall out of Lego bricks, you have to adapt — or you’ll die on stage.The episode takes a creepy turn when Samir meets a famous comedian brilliantly played by 30 Rock’s Tracy Morgan. Morgan is a Faustian figure who gives Samir advice on how to improve his comedy — be personal. Give yourself completely over to the audience. But if Samir wants to kill it on stage, he has to accept the price of success. And in Twilight Zone terms that could mean something much more sinister than just being vulnerable.Here’s where a lot of my comedian PTSD kicks in. It’s easier said than done to let yourself be vulnerable on stage. If done right, you’ll have the audience in the palm of your hand. If done badly, you could feel like you’re trapped in a therapy session where you’re heckled by your own support group.I’ve done comedy routines where I’d joke about childhood mishaps that left me emotionally scarred, or bosses who bullied me, or even dissected bad relationships on stage. But when I tried to joke about a recent breakup with someone I still loved, I started crying and forgot all my material. The audience was a silent blur behind my tears and I couldn’t pull myself out of my onstage depression fast enough to get to the punchline. I finally stumbled off stage and let the next comic go on. I’m sure he did well by comparison.twilight-zone-tracey-morganWhen Tracy Morgan gives you notes on your jokes, take heed. CBS All Access Samir doesn’t start crying when he takes the stage in The Twilight Zone, but when he yet again starts up on his politics routine, the audience members look very, very bored. So bored they get on their phones to play video games and text.This has happened to me so many times I once live-tweeted my comedy routine on stage in hopes of getting a laugh. I even tried to capture my hecklers in action, live on Snapchat, to help diffuse a bad situation. It didn’t. But that frustration of bombing on stage is real. You work so hard on your material, and instead of thunderous applause you can visibly see bored audience members checking Twitter.If you want to be a successful comic you have to be able to cold-read a room — and if the audience doesn’t laugh at your Ruth Bader Ginsburg impressions, you have to make them laugh with new jokes, and that might mean being more candid about your personal life.I’ve won back a bored audience when I started randomly talking about my embarrassing flirtation attempts, such as trying to hit on a pizza delivery guy who was clearly not interested. My comedy routine suddenly became all about using Postmates food delivery service as a kind of Tinder-with-food concept. I killed it on stage thanks to being honest about how bad I am at dating. In a way, that’s what Samir does. He finally makes a crack about his pet dog and the audience goes wild. His entire political routine is now replaced with dumb pet jokes — but that personal touch leaves the audience howling with laughter.However, in The Twilight Zone, success comes with some bad mojo. When Samir returns home flushed with success, he discovers his dog has been erased from existence. He joked the dog into oblivion.Samir realizes he can rid the world of anyone and anything personally connected to him just by naming names on stage. Suddenly everyone who’s ever wronged him in high school, college or on stage is killed off one joke at a time.Every standup comic — including me — has fantasized about this power one way or another.

Weak domestic demand global cues pull gold prices down

By on September 5, 2019

first_imgA sales person shows a gold ring to customers at a jewellery showroom during Dhanteras, a Hindu festival associated with Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth, in Ahmedabad, India, October 28, 2016.Reuters fileGold and silver prices dropped in India responding to weak global cues and tepid demand from traders in the Indian markets. The yellow metal closed Rs 200 lower at Rs 29,420 per 10 gm while silver prices fell Rs 825 to end at Rs 38,325 per kg in the Delhi bullion market, according to PTI.Interestingly, the fall in gold prices comes amid a report released by the World Gold Council (WGC) a few days ago, which projected a temporary fall in demand in the near future before picking up ahead of the festival season.”As consumers and importers brought forward their purchases to Q2 (June quarter), demand will likely be subdued for a few weeks. The stock is plentiful across the supply chain and consumers who have recently purchased are unlikely to do so again in the short term,” the WGC said.The demand in India for the yellow metal rose 41 percent to 126.7 tonnes from 89.8 tonnes in the corresponding period last year, even though China reported 5 percent drop, while the global demand increased 8 percent.One of the primary factors was the stockpiling of gold by traders ahead of the GST rate fixation. “Expecting a punitive GST rate, jewellers and consumers alike crammed their purchases into the first two months of the quarter, slowing down once the government confirmed that a 3% rate would be applied,” the WGC said. The same was evident in the June quarter performance of Titan, whose jewellery business under the brand name Tanishq posted substantial growth. The jewellery business revenues rose 54 percent to Rs 3,307 crore while the watches segment revenues remained flat at Rs 510 crore.”Our jewellery business has done a stellar performance in the first quarter due to a combination of one of the best Akshaya Tritiya sales, a very successful gold exchange programme as well as an element of advancement of sales in June in anticipation of higher GST rates,” Bhaskar Bhat, MD of Titan, said in a statement.last_img read more

KFC Counts Down to First Zinger Sandwich in Space

By on September 1, 2019

first_imgStay on target In perhaps the wildest marketing stunt ever, KFC is preparing to send a Zinger burger into space.Well, “near space,” at least: The chicken sandwich is less than seven days from being launched into the stratosphere, where it will stay between 60,000 and 80,000 feet above Earth for four days.“When most people hear the word ‘space,’ they usually think of ‘outer space,’ where all good 3D summer blockbusters are set,” according to KFC’s FAQ. The stratosphere, however, is only the second major layer of Earth’s atmosphere.Still, if all goes according to plan, we must live with the fact that a piece of crispy chicken traveled further than most humans have.In partnership with near-space explorers World View Enterprise, KFC next week will shoot a sandwich 19 miles into the air in a robotic bucket satellite.The Zinger will travel on World View’s high-altitude balloon Stratollite, a remote-controlled, un-crewed vehicle that operates along the edge of space. Unlike its rivals, the Stratollite can remain in orbit for long periods and fly a variety of trajectories.“The Stratollite is spearheading a new market for data collection of our planet, the environment, and human activity from a perch at the very edge of space,” World View CEO Jane Poynter said in a statement.When not carrying precious KFC cargo, the high-altitude balloons can transport various commercial payloads (sensors, telescopes, communications arrays, etc.). The Arizona-based manufacturer hopes its Stratollites will one day improve the ability to ID and track severe weather, and assist first responders during natural disasters.“This next mission will be our first attempt to really push the envelope with a flight designed to test, for the very first time, all the integrated critical systems needed to bring this Stratollite online for commercial markets,” she added.Home viewers can watch the Zinger’s process via social media or KFC’s mission website. The Stratollite will take about one hour and 20 minutes to ascend into space; upon completion of its task, the sandwich will return to Earth at a rate of 2,000 feet per minute—about a 30- to 40-minute journey.Don’t expect to bit into the famous space-faring burger, though. While the stratosphere’s near-vacuum conditions and below-freezing temps are “actually quite optimal for preserving food,” KFC said, the Zinger requires protective covering—i.e. Polyurethane—in space, to preserve the aesthetic of the food.

Environmental messages that promote a return to a positive past found to

By on August 31, 2019

first_img Moral values influence level of climate change action More information: Matthew Baldwin et al. Past-focused environmental comparisons promote proenvironmental outcomes for conservatives, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (2016). DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1610834113AbstractConservatives appear more skeptical about climate change and global warming and less willing to act against it than liberals. We propose that this unwillingness could result from fundamental differences in conservatives’ and liberals’ temporal focus. Conservatives tend to focus more on the past than do liberals. Across six studies, we rely on this notion to demonstrate that conservatives are positively affected by past- but not by future-focused environmental comparisons. Past comparisons largely eliminated the political divide that separated liberal and conservative respondents’ attitudes toward and behavior regarding climate change, so that across these studies conservatives and liberals were nearly equally likely to fight climate change. This research demonstrates how psychological processes, such as temporal comparison, underlie the prevalent ideological gap in addressing climate change. It opens up a promising avenue to convince conservatives effectively of the need to address climate change and global warming. Credit: Tiago Fioreze / Wikipedia This document is subject to copyright.

(—A pair of researchers with the University of Cologne in Germany has found that phrasing pro-environmental messages in past-focused ways was received more warmly by people who described themselves as conservatives than messages that warned of future problems. In their paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Matthew Baldwin and Joris Lammers describe the study they carried out with online volunteers and why they believe their results could have a real-world impact. Journal information: Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciencescenter_img Explore further © 2016 Citation: Environmental messages that promote a return to a positive past found to be more effective in convincing conservatives (2016, December 13) retrieved 18 August 2019 from The scientific community has very strongly embraced the notion that our planet is heating up due to greenhouse gas emissions. Prior research has shown that people who identify as liberals have also embraced this theory, whereas those who describe themselves as conservatives have tended to be less convinced. In this new effort, the research pair have conducted a study that they believe shows a path toward convincing conservatives to get onboard as well. Their idea is that conservatives tend to take a brighter view of the past than other groups; thus, they might be receptive to arguments regarding global warming couched in more pro-past oriented ways, e.g., “Times were better when you could count on snow for Christmas in northern towns,” or “We planted bulbs in the garden on the same spring day every year.”To test this idea, the researchers enlisted the assistance of 1,600 online volunteers who were asked about their political ideology and then to read an environmental statement that was followed by a questionnaire. Volunteers were given different environmental statements to read. Some had dire warnings about future environmental disasters, while others painted a rosy picture of the past and suggested that there might be ways to bring back the “good old days.”In analyzing the answers given, the researchers found that those who identified as liberals offered the same levels of environmental concern regardless of which message they received, while those who identified as conservatives and read the pro-past statement rated themselves as more environmentally concerned than those who read the future-oriented message. In another experiment, the researchers asked volunteers to donate virtual funds to various causes after reading similar statements and found that conservatives tended to give more to environmental causes after reading pro-past statements.The researchers suggest that offering conservatives more pro-past messages regarding climate change might convince many of them that efforts to make environmental changes are desirable.last_img read more

Google Trusted Contacts app for Android

By on August 29, 2019

first_imgGoogle Trusted Contacts app for Android by Martin Brinkmann on December 06, 2016 in Companies, Google – Last Update: January 04, 2018 – 4 commentsTrusted Contacts is a new personal safety application for Android devices that allows others to find out your last known location.The main idea behind the app is to give one or more contacts the status of trusted contact. These can be family members, close friends, parents, or your spouse.Once you have given someone the status, they may use the Trusted Contacts application to find out where you are.One neat twist is that you are still in control, and may decline the request. But if you don’t respond in five minutes, the location will be shared.If the device is not connected to the Internet, or on at all, your last known location is shared instead.Trusted ContactsThe app could come in handy in a number of situations:Making sure that children stay safe on their way to school or friends.Making sure your significant other gets back home safe.When someone goes hiking or jogging.When a friend leaves your place to go home late at night.Trusted Contacts provides you with an option to share your location actively as well. You can share it with a single contact, or even all of them if you have added more than one to the application.The permission to look up your location remains active for a 24 hour period. You may however turn off the sharing at any point in time prior to the end of that period.Setting up the app is relatively simple. Download the app, browse the tutorial screens that are displayed on first start, and start adding contacts to the trust list.All contacts receive an email with information and instructions on how to set this up.Closing WordsTrusted Contacts is one of those Google applications that looks good on first sight but has quite a few issues when you dig deeper and start to use it.Probably the biggest issue is that it is cumbersome to use. An option to share the location with someone permanently, to auto-accept requests for certain contacts, and to block location sharing for a certain amount of time.One example: if a trusted contact requests your location, and you happen to not look at your device for the next five minutes, your location is shared automatically. That’s great in an emergency, not so great if you are sound asleep at home or elsewhere.For making sure children or the elderly are safe, it would make sense to enable permanent location sharing options.Google users may use Google+ to share their location which allows them to do so in advance.Summary12345 Author Rating2.5 based on 3 votes Software Name Trusted ContactsOperating System AndroidSoftware Category AppsLanding Page Advertisementlast_img read more

The next blog will focus on how innovation can help protect patients. The Power of the InjectorOnly through the use of power injectors can contrast agents be administered at exactly the times and the flow rates needed to consistently achieve high-quality images, he said. When combined with pressure monitoring systems and hardware to prevent extravasation — defined as the accidental leakage of IV material into the surrounding tissue — these injectors can simultaneously mitigate risk.But to be effective, technologists must consider the limitations of these machines. The jet of contrast coming from the injector can dislodge the needle from inside the vein, causing extravasation. While extravasation occurs very infrequently and complications usually are minimal, complications can be severe in extreme cases.The information to help prevent this from happening can be obtained from a manual test conducted before the CT procedure to determine whether the IV injection and the blood vessel are compatible, Molvin said. Some subtle findings might come from this test. And technologists have to be ready to act on them.“Let’s say the protocol requires an injection of 6 mLs per second but the manual test reveals the patient would likely experience discomfort at that rate,” he said.  “You could reduce the injection rate to 4mLs a second and adjust technical factors on your CT scanner to maintain image quality,” for example, the scan time and kVP.Technologists must also consider such other issues as the concentration of the medium. High concentrations tend to produce high-quality images. “Isovue 370 always produces images that look better than 350, which look better than 320, which look better than 300,” Molvin said. “But there are times when a lower concentration is merited.”Viscosity rises with the concentration, he explained. And high viscosities can cause extravasation, which can harm local tissue, if not properly treated.A good way to go, Molvin said, is to adjust the protocol to use a lower concentration of the contrast agent: “By doing so, the technologist can use the exact same injection parameters — flow rate, injection volume and injection duration — then just optimize the concentration based on the patient’s renal function.”For example, at Stanford, a contrast medium with 300 concentration may be used instead of one with a 370 concentration, if eGFR (estimated glomerular filtration rate) indicates stage 3B chronic kidney disease, Molvin noted.

Papadopoulos election claims appear to backfire

By on August 9, 2019

first_imgPresidential hopeful Nicolas Papadopoulos’ bid to score points against incumbent Nicos Anastasiades by raising the issue of the 2013 deposit seizures appeared to have backfired on Tuesday as documents and public statements failed to back his claims.The matter started creeping into the agenda last Friday with claims of the discovery of a ‘secret’ Eurogroup teleconference on March 18, 2013 during which Cyprus was told to refrain from seizing secure deposits, those under €100,000.The initial Eurogroup decision spoke of an across the board levy of 6.9 per cent on deposits under €100,000 and 9.9 per cent for those over.The implication, according to the Papadopoulos campaign, was that the government was told by its European partners not to touch secure deposits but it still presented a bill to parliament doing so.It quickly transpired there was no hidden Eurogroup teleconference – it was reported both by Reuters and the Cyprus News Agency the same day.According to the text of a statement issued afterwards, The Eurogroup said it continued to be of the view that small depositors should be treated differently from large depositors and reaffirmed the importance of fully guaranteeing deposits below €100,000.“The Cypriot authorities will introduce more progressivity in the one-off levy compared to what was agreed on 16 March, provided that it continues yielding the targeted reduction of the financing envelope and, hence, not impact the overall amount of financial assistance up to €10bn.”Still, the Papadopoulos camp, including parties that support him, insisted they had not been informed by the government about it, as reports of a secret conference disappeared.Minutes of a March 19 meeting of the House finance committee, which Papadopoulos chaired at the time, showed that former central bank governor Panicos Demetriades had told MPs that the European Central Bank expressed the view that deposits under €100,000 should be protected because trust in the banking system was based on this protection.On Tuesday, Demetriades told Politis radio that there would not have been any problem if the special levy had been approved and enforced immediately.But after seeing the reactions in the markets, European officials had second thoughts, Demetriades said.“When I went to the House I clearly told them it is wrong to tax (secure) deposits,” he said. “How are we going to rebuild trust in the banking system if we tax secure deposits.”Demetriades said he wasn’t aware of a Eurogroup teleconference – something he found out later – but he had had one himself with ECB President Mario Draghi and the European Commissioner for Economic and Monetary Affairs and the Euro Olli Rehn.“I remember going to parliament knowing what I had discussed with Mr Draghi and Olli Rehn,” he said, adding that he would have been more persistent if he also knew about the Eurogroup decision.Demetriades said MPs didn’t pay much attention to what he was telling them.“They ignored me, more or less. They heard what I told them and went ahead to reject it. They didn’t understand the reality. They thought they wanted to punish us. It wasn’t like that.”The bill had been amended to exempt the first €20,000. Legislators had also rejected a proposal to seize 15.6 per cent of deposits over €100,000. According to Demetriades, this would have saved Laiki, which was later shuttered as part of the terms of the island’s bailout. Bank of Cyprus also seized 47.5 per cent of unsecured deposits to recapitalise.On Tuesday, Papadopoulos said the minutes only confirmed Anastasiades insistence on seizing secure deposits, despite the Eurogroup decision the previous day.A spokesperson for the campaign wondered why Anastasiades insisted on seizing deposits under €100,000. “Whom did he want to serve?”Ruling Disy responded by citing footage of a television interview in September 2013 where Papadopoulos said “If I could go back and vote again I would vote yes.”“Which Nicolas Papadopoulos should be listened to?” Disy spokesman Prodromos Prodromou asked.“The one who on March 19 rejected President Anastasiades’ proposal of a special levy, leading us to the haircut? The one who admitted six months later that he wouldn’t reject the proposal if he got a second chance? Or the one who is trying today to tell us that supposedly there was another, secret, Eurogroup decision.”You May LikeLuxury Crossover SUV I Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
