‘Insurance Sector Cardinal to Economic Growth’

first_imgA deputy governor at the Central Bank of Liberia (CBL) has said that insurance is very important in the Liberian economy because it plays a significant role in mobilizing capital resources for growth and development of the economy.Deputy Governor Boima Kamara made the assertion Monday, May 5, in Monrovia, during formal the opening of the 36th Annual General Meeting and Education conference of the West African Insurance Companies Association (WAICA).The 2-day WAICA Meeting is being held under the theme: “Modern Technological Advances and the Development of the Insurance Industry in West Africa.”Based on that, Mr. Kamara told WAICA delegates that the CBL took over the regulation and supervision of the insurance sector in 2009, and began processing or reforming the sector so that to it operates under the relevant provisions of a new financial institution Act of 1999 including the 1999 CBL Act.Following a compressive survey and extensive consultation with the sectors, Mr. Kamara said that the CBL issued a one-year insurance action plan for the first stage of the reform agenda in 2011.According to the deputy CBL Governor, the focus plan was to ensure that all operating insurance companies in Liberia were in compliance with the required minimum capital as well as strengthening the board and management oversight to reduce risk.“The CBL is pleased to announce to you all that this stage of the reform has been successful, and as a result of the exercise, 20 out 26 insurance companies have met the requirements and have been licensed by the CBL to conduct insurance business in Liberia,” he said.However, the CBL Deputy Bank Governor used the occasion to encourage the 20 insurance operators to seize the opportunity to become part of WAICA.He told them that WAICA has lot of opportunities in the future for Liberia.For his part, the Deputy Minister for Administration and Insurance at the Ministry of Transport, J. Levi Demmah, who delivered the keynote address on behalf of the Liberian government, said it was good for West Africans to come together, to discuss issue pertaining to the growth of the economy in the sub-region.Min. Demmah said since its founding, WAICA has established two institutions in Africa and it is building the human capacity of its staff.He also told WAICA delegates to reflect on their past activities as long as the association exists in the West African region.Mr. Demmah also noted that insurance companies in Liberian have faced many challenges over the years, especially where the country is recovering from civil crisis.However, the Deputy Transport Minister said they were farsighted to launch a compulsory vehicle third party registration in the country, which he said will benefit many Liberians when it comes to accident and casualty.In his welcome remarks earlier, the vice-president of WAICA and president of the Association of Insurers in Liberia (AIL), Momo Fortune, thanked participants for attending this year’s 36th Annual General Meeting and Education Conference in Monrovia and hoped that they will achieve their desire goal at the end of the gathering.Mr. Fortune, General Manager & CEO of Mutual Benefits Assurance Company, is expected to be installed into office as the new president of WAICA today, May 6.The delegates are looking at Modern Technological Advances and the Development of the Insurance Industry in West Africa as well as Business Innovation Powered by technology: the expectations of stakeholders in the Insurance Industry in the sub-region.Meanwhile, the West African Insurance Companies Association (WAICA), is a regional association of insurance companies and institutions in English-speaking West Africa.It was founded in 1973 by insurance institutions in the five West African countries, namely; The Gambia, Sierra Leone, Ghana, Nigeria and Liberia.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Employers must allow workers to go vote in LGE – Opposition Leader

first_imgLGE 2018As the final countdown to the 2018 Local Government Elections (LGE) approaches, the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) is encouraging employers to avoid preventing staff from exercising their democratic right to vote.This call was recently made by Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo, and it came as candidates from the various parities make their final pitch to convince the electorate to cast votes in their favour.“I think they should allow employees to go and vote. People have a civic responsibility to vote. On a few places on the campaign trail, I’ve sought to reinforce the need of people to come out and vote … this is not for PPP supporters alone; this is for Guyanese as it is essentially part of our freedoms as people, that now we have this right, we must exercise it,” Jagdeo detailed.Jagdeo’s comments came in light of questions from media operatives which sought to ascertain his position on the possibility of reduced working hours to facilitate the 2018 LGE. The Opposition Leader, in emphasising the value of casting one’s vote, spoke on historical gains received after his party contributed to Guyana gaining full adult suffrage 65 years ago. This meant that all persons, then over the age of 21, were allowed to vote in national elections, even though the country was still under the rule of the United Kingdom, a colonial power which retains certain overseas territories to the present day.“You had to own property or be literate and at that time, not many people were literate, because the colonial authorities did not build schools in all of our communities and not many [persons] owned property. I am really proud of that history of the PPP – that we fought for universal adult suffrage,” the PPP General Secretary reminded.Hundreds of candidates from the major political parties, smaller groups and individual candidates are vying for places as constituency representatives across 80 Local Authority Areas (LAAs) across the country’s 10 administrative districts. The elections are being held in 10 municipalities and 70 Neighbourhood Democratic Councils (NDCs) using a mixed electoral system of Proportional Representation (PR) and First Past the Post (FPTP).Under the PR electoral system, parties gain seats in proportion to the number of votes cast for them in a municipality or NDC. For someone to be elected under the PR system, they must be on a party list or voluntary group list. Individuals cannot contest under the PR system.Meanwhile, the FPTP system is one in which an individual gains victory by garnering the greatest number of votes. These candidates can come from a party, voluntary group or run as an independent.Fifty per cent of Councillors for each municipality and NDC are elected through the PR system, while the other half comes from the FPTP component of the electoral system. Under the FPTP system, an individual candidate can contest for only one seat in a single constituency in which he or she is registered and resides. Candidates can only be nominated for one group for the PR and FPTP lists.On Saturday, the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) published the names of each NDC, municipality, the various constituencies and the corresponding polling stations enabling voters to be aware of where they will have to cast their ballots. GECOM has, however, been criticised for not doing enough in terms of voter education, but the elections body has expressed confidence that mechanisms were in place for a smooth flow during Monday’s election process.The last Local Government polls were held in 2016 and over 500,000 Guyanese were registered to vote. However, voter turnout was recorded at 47 per cent.last_img read more

Anti-terror unit skirts the law

first_imgSkobin said while there was no evidence of wrongdoing, auditors found some lapses and room for improvement. Lie detector not used The lapses include the discontinuation of giving a lie-detector test to new anti-terrorism investigators. “In the past (anti-terrorism) personnel submitted to a lie-detector examination prior to being placed in the section,” the audit report says. “Due to limited resources within the department and a need to transfer personnel into the section in a relatively short time frame, this process was eliminated from the selection process.” Capt. Gary S. Williams, Major Crimes Division commanding officer who is retiring this month, told auditors he was delayed in reimplementing the lie-detector test by “employment and legal considerations.” Still, the test has been reinstituted for new transfers. Williams could not be reached for comment Monday. Deputy Chief Mark Leap, who oversees the LAPD’s Counter-Terrorism and Criminal Intelligence Bureau and who also is retiring at the end of the month, said he hadn’t seen the audit Monday. The audit says Williams failed to provide the commission with written certification each year that all intelligence investigations had been internally reviewed and that those no longer considered viable had been closed, as regulations required. The audits of the Major Crimes Division, which includes the Anti-Terrorist Intelligence Section, were a key condition of a $1.8 million settlement with the ACLU of Southern California in 1984 after a high-profile department scandal. The ACLU settlement came over the activities of the LAPD’s Public Disorder Intelligence Division, which kept extensive secret files on public officials and prominent civilians. Conditions expire The department was accused of abuses in using those files after a detective was found to have more than 100 boxes of dossiers in his home and garage, and to have disclosed some of the material to right-wing groups and individuals. The conditions expired in the mid-1990s, but department guidelines continued to require the audits. Birotte said he was troubled, in particular, by instances in which the documentation in the anti-terrorism files didn’t back up the actions taken by investigators. “We saw examples where we didn’t think there was adequate documentation,” he said. “It’s always a concern, … especially with a section as sensitive as this.” Williams, he said, blamed investigators’ lack of experience. The audit says protocols intended to keep track of sensitive materials, including time stamps and other tracking devices, had been largely abandoned. “In the past, (anti-terrorism) personnel used a stamp, wherein personnel documented how and when the information (placed in the working folder) was obtained and material to the investigation. “The stamp was not present on a majority of documents contained in the working files for the investigations reviewed.” Some files sketchy After it became an issue, Williams restored the documentation requirement last April. In one case, a file described a person as talking about wanting to harm another, but there was no documentation that the target was ever warned. Williams said another agency made the notification. In another case, a file indicated officers found a document about ingredients for explosives, but key information was missing, including who gave officers the tip. A third case described how fliers had been distributed by a radical group around the city, but further information was lacking, including a copy of the flier. Auditors also said they were concerned that anti-terrorism personnel weren’t getting the semiannual training regulations used to require – to keep investigators abreast of constitutional and statutory considerations, as well as intelligence policy. The report blames the decade-long gap in mandatory Police Commission auditing on “personnel resource constraints,” but notes there was regular communication, as well as informal updates. beth.barrett@dailynews.com (818) 713-3731160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

And she questioned why the audit didn’t include the total number of terrorist investigations, as a 1997 audit did. “On balance, it’s a pretty good report, but it shows the importance of why these reports should be issued,” Ripston said. “We were dismayed to find out they weren’t keeping track of the agreement in the settlement they made.” The audit’s first phase, performed by Commissioner Alan J. Skobin and Inspector General Andre Birotte, found a series of problems that went undetected or unreported to the public during the years the audits were neglected. But their report, released today, didn’t identify any improper police tracking of individuals involved in political dissent or other constitutionally protected activity. “We were very thorough,” Skobin said. “This is a very important area – people’s constitutional rights, their liberties. We were painstakingly careful in reviewing this and found (no violations) whatsoever. … The type of abuses that were the target of the audit were not happening in (the) LAPD – not in the areas that violate people’s rights.” The first audit of the LAPD’s anti-terrorism activities in a decade has found that officers were allowed into the highly sensitive unit without taking polygraphs, confidential information was sloppily handled, and the Police Commission didn’t get required updates. The audit was released 1 1/2 years after the Daily News disclosed that mandatory annual commission audits of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Anti-Terrorist Intelligence Section hadn’t been done since 1997 – a failing that raised concerns about the potential for abuse and the lack of public transparency. Ramona Ripston, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California, said the audit, a requirement after a court settlement intended to end police abuses in keeping secret dossiers on prominent individuals, was long overdue. She noted a finding that grounds of reasonable suspicion “appeared questionable” in the opening of two investigations. last_img read more

Alberta set to pass law to kill provincial carbon tax, as federal tax looms

first_imgKenney has said if Ottawa impose its fee, he will join Saskatchewan and Ontario in fighting it in court.Alberta is expected to argue that Ottawa does not have the constitutional authority to levy the tax and that, in any event, Alberta is already paying one with its current tax of greenhouse gases on large emitters.Alberta’s fee, launched on Jan. 1, 2017 by the previous NDP government, taxed carbon at $30 tonne. Drivers were paying almost seven cents a litre more this year with the provincial carbon tax, along with $1.51 a gigajoule on natural gas for heating. Energy Efficiency Alberta says the typical Alberta household uses 120 gigajoules a year.The federal tax is $20 a tonne but is set to rise annually until it hits $50 a tonne in 2022.The Alberta tax brought in an estimated $2 billion, much of that rebated to low and middle-income families. It also funded a range of green projects from rapid transit to energy saving light bulbs.Advertisement In Ottawa, Federal Environment Minister Catherine McKenna decried Alberta’s decision to end the provincial carbon tax, which she dubbed the “make pollution free again bill.”She said Canada will move quickly to impose the federal version on Alberta.“We’re looking to do it as soon as possible,” said McKenna.Alberta now joins New Brunswick, Ontario, Manitoba and Saskatchewan _ provinces that have declined to impose their own carbon levys, leaving Ottawa to impose one for them.Advertisement EDMONTON, A.B. – Alberta’s consumer carbon tax is dead, setting the stage for a showdown with Ottawa over the imposition of a new one.The province cancelled its tax on gasoline at the pumps and on home heating fuels just after midnight Thursday morning.Later in the day, the legislature was to pass third and final reading of An Act to Repeal the Carbon Tax to make the change official.- Advertisement -The bill was a signature campaign promise of Premier Jason Kenney’s United Conservatives, who won a majority government last month.Kenney told the house Thursday that the bill delivers a merciful end to a tax that didn’t stop the global rise of greenhouse gas emissions but did hurt working families.“We have barely been in office for a month and we are already, today, delivering to Albertans the biggest tax break in our province’s history,” Kenney told the house as his UCP caucus members applauded.Advertisement “They don’t have a plan to tackle climate change and they don’t have a plan to grow the economy,” said McKenna.In the legislature, Kenney criticized and mocked former premier Rachel Notley for bringing in the provincial carbon tax, especially after not running on it in the 2015 election campaign.He said the tax didn’t deal with climate change and didn’t deliver any “social licence” to garner further national or international support or acceptance of Alberta’s oil and gas industry.“So what is the point?” Kenney said rhetorically.“The best answer I can come up with is this: it makes them feel better about themselves. It makes them feel virtuous. And it makes the NDP feel like somehow they are saving the planet.” Families will also get rebates from the federal tax.McKenna said her department has already done preliminary math, given that Kenney’s bill was expected pass, and estimates a family of four in Alberta will get $700 in rebates when they file their 2019 taxes a year from now.That’s higher than the $377 expected in New Brunswick, $451 in Ontario and $449 in Manitoba. A family in Saskatchewan would get $903.The rebates are based on the expected amount people will pay. Provinces, where coal and natural gas are used more heavily for heating and electricity, are likely to shoulder higher carbon tax bills.McKenna said Kenney is taking a page from the same playbook as Ontario Premier Doug Ford.Advertisementlast_img read more

Clippers rout Sonics as deal falls through

first_imgAnother factor that hindered the trade is that Maggette is expected to be out six weeks with a separated ligament in his left foot. Now Maggette knows the team wanted to trade him. The Clippers swingman, however, says he understands the nature of the business. If Maggette’s relationship with the Clippers has been hurt, then Dunleavy is trying to repair it. He talked on the phone with Maggette on Friday and met with him Saturday to discuss what transpired. The Clippers didn’t need Maggette on Saturday. The Clippers led by 17 points in the second quarter after a 16-0 run and entered the fourth quarter with a 76-58 lead. joe.stevens@presstelegram.com (562) 499-1338 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Buoyed by 25 points and 10 rebounds from Chris Kaman, the Clippers won a second consecutive game, 98-72, in front of 18,099 on Saturday night at Staples Center.

While Dunleavy says he still is optimistic about this season, that optimism didn’t prevent him and general manager Elgin Baylor from meeting with the controversial Artest in an effort to work out a trade. “We’re totally confident about where we are and what our direction is,” Dunleavy said. “As it comes down to it, we have responsibilities to explore every opportunity that’s out there. “Along the way, we haven’t hidden the fact we’ve had an interest. And that’s true. We have had an interest in Artest. He’s a unique talent, and so you talk to people, you talk about different things, potential deals that can work and cannot work.” Artest, suspended 72 games last season for his role in a brawl in Detroit, has been on the Pacers’ inactive list since Dec. 12, two days after demanding a trade. He is a former all-star who some consider among the elite players in the league. Maggette never has been an all-star but has been solid as the Clippers’ second-leading scorer. center_img The Clippers led by as many as 28 points in the fourth quarter and by 17 in the first half. There wasn’t much drama to the game, but there was some drama for the Clippers as coach Mike Dunleavy met earlier in the day with Maggette to discuss a trade that might have sent him to Indiana for Ron Artest.

Lancers roll as Masumiya shines

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card A few minutes later, Masumiya netted her first goal of the game. Masumiya beat a defender after receiving a pass from Bleidistel inside the box and slid as she kicked the ball past the Millikan goalie for the score. “I really liked the way we moved the ball today. We played as a team and came together. I’m very pleased with how we played,” Bunton said. The second half was all Lakewood (10-5-2, 4-0-1) as a pumped Masumiya dropped two more to put the game away. Masumiya took a free kick from 30 yards out that she placed perfectly into the upper left corner. The shot bounced off the Millikan goalie’s hand as she went up for the block and through for the score. She followed that up with a header off a corner kick. “I was pumped before the game,” Masumiya said. “I think we played an amazing game. We all came out and played with our hearts. We had intensity and we were ready for it.” The Rams (8-5-1, 3-2) were dominated by the Lancers midfield throughout the game. Tiffany Hollis made some key saves and Lakewood’s defense didn’t allow Millikan to do much offensively. “This was her game,” Lakewood coach Greg Bunton said. “Today she came up. Built a lot of confidence in herself. I was really proud of her. She had a killer day.” Nikki Bleidistel got the Lancers on the board in the first half, putting away a deflected pass from the Millikan goalie into the net. The Lakewood High girls soccer team was in charge of Tuesday afternoon’s Moore League contest at Millikan. And leading the charge for the Lancers was midfielder Allison Masumiya. The Lancers scored two goals in each half, and three of the four were tallied by Masumiya as Lakewood romped, 4-0. center_img “They won every ball,” Millikan coach Bruce Brown said. “They controlled us in the middle. They outhustled us. They won more balls than we did and that allowed them to get quality shots and score. (Masumiya) played a tremendous game. She was awesome.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!last_img read more

first_imgGAA: Former Kerry legend Tómas Ó Sé has come up with a unique way of dismantling Donegal’s ultra-tight defensive structure.Ó Sé, now an analyst on The Sunday Game was asked how do Derry approach their semi-final against Donegal and what to do they need to bring to the table to beat them.Ó Sé jokingly hit back and said “A couple of KANGOS and a few snipers will do the job rightly.” That prompted laughter in the studio, but on a more serious note Ó Sé did concede that Derry face a hell of a task coming up with a strategy to defeat Donegal.He doesn’t believe they have the firepower to hurt Donegal despite Eoin Bradley and Mark Lynch’s impressive performances last week against Down.Ó Sé did say that Donegal will be presented with a more difficult challenge than the one poised by Armagh and expects Derry to adopt an ultra-defensive approach similar to the one they employed against Dublin in the league.Former Kildare star Dermot Earley believes no team plays the defensive system better than Donegal and thinks they’ll be there or thereabouts comes the business end of the season. Earley said, “Donegal are a serious, serious side, and nobody in the country plays this defensive style of football better than them.“They’re so good at it, and everybody knows there role, other teams get behind the ball and mark space but don’t necessarily know how to play it.“Donegal on the other hand are a different breed, every players knows where to be and what they have to do.“They also have so much variation in their attack and that makes them so hard to play against.Will Derry manager Brian McIver bring the KANGO’s to Clones on June 27th? Judging by today’s awesome performance he’s going to need them.HOW DO YOU STOP DONEGAL? “A FEW KANGOS AND A COUPLE OF SNIPERS SAYS FORMER KERRY STAR” was last modified: June 15th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalGAAKerrynewsSportThe Sunday GameTomás Ó Sélast_img read more
