Solutions to interrelated global challenges spur sustainability says Ban

In his remarks yesterday to the Fifth Summit of the Americas in Port of Spain, the capital of Trinidad and Tobago, Mr. Ban emphasized the need to “safeguard people from hardship, not only the poorest and most vulnerable, but also the emerging middle class.” Today’s interrelated food, energy, climate and economic crises could spiral into social unrest, weakened governments and angry people losing faith in both their leaders and their futures, he stressed. “If we are smart about it, if we work at their inter-connections, solutions to each can be solutions to all,” the Secretary-General said. “We can get more value for our collective dollar, peso and real.” Leaders at the Group of 20 (G-20) summit earlier this month in London made strides towards a ‘green’ new deal, vowing to reach agreement on a new climate change pact at this December’s United Nations climate change conference in Copenhagen, Denmark. The Americas have been ravaged by climate change, with glaciers shrinking in Antarctica and the Andes, deforestation affecting the Brazilian Amazon, and sea level rises threatening the existence of some Caribbean nations, Mr. Ban said. “Bold, visionary leadership is needed to seal a deal in Copenhagen,” he said. “It must be ambitious, effective and fair. It must offer rich nations a way to cut emissions.” Equally importantly, poorer countries must receive support to adapt to climate change, he added, calling for the creation of green jobs to promote green growth. “Ultimately, solidarity and common cause must be our greatest strength,” Mr. Ban said, calling for a new form of multilateralism to serve as the foundation for a new and sustainable prosperity for all people, a vision he laid out on Friday in an address at Princeton University. 19 April 2009The interlinked challenges the world faces today can be addressed in a manner that will propel growth, inclusivity and sustainability, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has said. read more

Green industries essential to foster sustainable economic growth – UN agency

12 October 2011Industries should take into account green measures for every aspect of what they do to be able to ensure their sustainable future, the United Nations agency entrusted with accelerating industrial development in poorer States said today. Speaking at the Global Green Growth Forum (3GF) in Copenhagen, the Director-General of the UN Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) Kandeh K. Yumkella said the only way to ensure an economically viable future is to ensure that industries do not harm the environment.In addition, he said that UNIDO’s Green Industry concept will prove crucial as a catalyst for green growth in country’s economies. The concept asks industries – regardless of their scope or location – to continuously improve their environmental performance through measures such as phasing out toxic substances, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and strengthening occupational health and safety.The concept also entails implementing public policy initiatives that encourage environmentally responsible private investment.“Green Industry and the Greening of Industries, concepts coined by UNIDO in the last few years, are helping place sustainable industrial development in the context of new global sustainability challenges. Together we can make the global transition to a green growth pathway work,” he said.Mr. Yumkella added that his agency is currently providing assistance to developing countries to facilitate their transition to greener measures: “UNIDO is helping developing countries secure resource-efficient low-carbon growth, create new green jobs while at the same time protecting the environment. We also help developing countries move to clean technologies and implement environmental agreements, including the Montreal Protocol,” he told forum participants.The 3GF Forum, established by Denmark and the Republic of Korea (ROK) in association with the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI), brought together 200 global leaders from government, business, finance and civil society.During the two-day event, which ends today, leaders discussed green issues and designed the structure for a green economy. read more

Vasu to seek crackdown on BBS

“Under our constitution anyone can follow any religion they want. If people feel threatened then they should complain to the police and the police must take action or they can go to Court,” he said.His comments came in the wake of the recent attack on the Fashion Bug store at Pepiliyana and hate campaigns targeting other Muslim establishments.The Bodu Bala Sena denied any involvement in the Pepiliyana incident but the monks had openly spoken against the clothes store at a public rally recently. Minister Hakeem has also contacted all the Muslim parliamentarians including Senior Minister M. H. M. Fowzie (who is currently out of the country) and Ministers Rishard Bathiutheen and A. L. M. Athaullah for the meeting in this regard.An SLMC statement on Friday said that the Minister had expressed his displeasure and had condemned the attack on a private business site. He believes that this was seemingly carried out as a sequel to the ongoing attacks on the religious places and hate campaigns against Muslims and other religious minority communities in the country.Minister Hakeem also said he was dismayed at the ineffective response of the law and order machinery in containing the spread of such violence and unrest that fuels insecurity and peace of all minority communities in Sri Lanka. Minister of National Language and Social Integration Vasudeva Nanayakara is to submit a Cabinet paper seeking a crackdown on extremist groups, including the Bodu Bala Sena, Ravana Balaya and Sinhala Ravaya.The Minister told The Sunday Leader that the Cabinet paper is being drafted and will be submitted in two weeks time. He also accused the police of failing to take action against such groups despite them openly advocating hatred.Nanayakkara also said that he had written to President Mahinda Rajapaksa regarding the hate campaigns targeting Muslims in the country. The latest incident led to Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) leader and Minister of Justice, Rauff Hakeem requesting President Mahinda Rajapaksa to convene a cabinet meeting to discuss the rising religious unrest and civil disturbance in the country. He said that the Cabinet paper will seek to bring in new laws to crack down on such groups in the wake of the recent religious tensions in the country. Nanayakkara accused the Bodu Bala Sena, Ravana Balaya and Sinhala Ravaya of spreading hatred and disharmony among religions and other communities. read more

Offensive struggles from Tulsa an anomaly according to Buckeyes

OSU redshirt senior offensive linesman Pat Elflein (65) blocks a pass rusher from OSU redshirt junior quarterback J.T. Barrett (16) during the fourth quarter of the Buckeye’s game against Tulsa on Sept. 10. The Buckeyes won 48-3. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Photo EditorIn the first two games for the Ohio State football team, the offensive attack from coach Urban Meyer’s squad has been a night and day difference. After producing 776 yards against Bowling Green, the Buckeyes were only able to crank out 402 total yards against the Tulsa Golden Hurricane, many of which came after an hour-long weather delay.Redshirt junior quarterback J.T. Barrett scored at will in Week 1, putting seven total touchdowns on the board while completing just under 68 percent of his passes and picking up 349 yards. Against Tulsa, the story was very different. Barrett only picked up 149 yards and failed to find the endzone through the air.Defense was the biggest component of the Buckeyes scoring, picking up two scores and providing the offense with a short field on multiple occasions. On offense, the scoring came from the ground, with Barrett picking up two touchdowns and redshirt freshman running back Mike Weber and senior H-back Dontre Wilson each crossing the goal line.In each of the first two weeks, Meyer has graded out three champions on the offensive line — redshirt senior center Pat Elflein twice and redshirt junior guard Billy Price against Tulsa. The rest of the unit has failed to gain this recognition, and the lack of experience of the new starters has been apparent to fans, as well as their coach.“I’m concerned about everything. I have a lot of confidence we are getting better and better each day, and that’s growing pains with five guys that have to work together,” Meyer said. “So, yeah, a little bit concerned. But I think we’re further ahead than I thought we would be at this point.”So far this year, the Buckeyes have allowed just one sack through two games, provided by Tulsa junior defensive end Jeremy Smith in the second quarter of last Saturday’s game. Oklahoma, OSU’s next opponent, has picked up four sacks in two games.The position change of former guard-turned-center Elflein, and the introduction of three new starters along the offensive front have caused some of the worry for Meyer. Against Tulsa, the Buckeyes were able to gain only 268 yards rushing, which might seem to be an impressive total. However, OSU could only muster 89 yards rushing in the first half.Elflein said the young offensive linemen are working this week to right the wrongs of the first half against the Golden Hurricane.“I’m not worried by any means. We are getting better. We had a lot of stuff thrown at us last week,” Elflein said. “I think it was good to get some experience with that stuff. I’m sure, at Oklahoma, we’ll see that too.”Elflein went on to say the offensive line is still a work in progress. Much like the offensive line, the wide receivers are still trying to grow and produce at a higher level.Wide receivers struggled last Saturday, which resulted in a poor pass attack against the Golden Hurricane. In all, the wide receivers have been targeted 20 times this year, while the combination of H-backs, running backs and tight ends have been thrown to 32 times.Although the Buckeye coaching staff expected some struggles from the unit with the loss of three of its top receivers to the NFL, there has been a distinct lack of production from the pass catchers. The leading receiver, redshirt sophomore Noah Brown, has only four receptions for 64 yards and one touchdown.The two leading pass catchers have been junior Curtis Samuel and senior Dontre Wilson, both H-backs.Even with the struggles against Tulsa, Barrett said the team can have a much better performance against Oklahoma by focusing on the task at hand and arriving at the game better prepared than the team was last week.“In high school, you know, I had lucky socks. I thought that was the key to my success. Wearing my socks,” Barrett said. “As far as now, understanding Coach Meyer’s approach, it just makes a lot of sense now that it doesn’t matter what socks you wear or if you’ve got lucky drawers or anything like that. That doesn’t matter. It’s that you’re prepared. And I think that’s the main thing.” read more

GP ordered Chechen hitman to kill his financial adviser after losing £300000

A retired GP ordered the contract killing of his financial adviser after blaming him for losing £300,000 from his pension pot, a court has heard.David Crichton, a respected doctor from Bournemouth allegedly contacted Chechen mobsters via the dark web and paid them £3,800 in bitcoins to murder banker Andrew Bolden.Winchester Crown Court heard that Dr Crichton, 64, had pursued a five year vendetta against Mr Bolden after accusing him of providing disastrous financial investment advice.In February last year he is accused of accessing the encrypted website of the “Chechen mob” where he selected from an online menu of options to “kill the b******”.Simon Jones, prosecuting, said Dr Crichton’s actions were discovered by officers with the National Crime Agency (NCA) who had been monitoring a dark web page called “Crime Bay by Chechen Mob” and found the order made for a hitman to kill Mr Bolden.Mr Jones said the defendant had used a special browser on his computer and created an account on the website before he selected murder from the menu.Other options offered by the hitmen included “beat the s*** out of him”, “set his car on fire”, and “set his house on fire”. The court heard that Dr Crichton sent hundreds of emails, prompting his address to be blocked, then sent a text message to Mr Bolden on February 4 2017, saying: “I am contacting you out of desperation, I believe you are the only person who can help save my life.”Mr Jones said Dr Crichton then called Mr Bolden saying his “life is at risk” before sending another message on March 4, saying: “I remain desperate to speak to you and since you know my life is at risk I can’t believe you are obstructing me in this.”The prosecutor said Dr Crichton told police in interview that he had been “drunk and feeling suicidal” when he accessed the dark web site, and had become obsessed with hitmen but had “thought it was a game and it wasn’t real”.Dr Crichton denies one count of attempting to solicit murder and three of sending malicious communications and the trial continues. Dr Chrichton is accused of trying to hire a Chechen hitman from the dark web Dr Chrichton was arrested at home in Bournemouth The prosecutor said Dr Crichton had made a complaint to the financial regulator but Mr Bolden was found to have given correct advice.

Dr Chrichton is accused of trying to hire a Chechen hitman from the dark web Dr Crichton is also accused of three charges of sending a malicious communication made up of two text messages and one phone call with the aim of making Mr Bolden fear that he was about to commit suicide.The court heard that Dr Crichton had met Mr Bolden when he was running a seminar in Bournemouth in September 2011 on NHS pensions.The GP, who was coming up for retirement paid-for financial advice on how to invest his £1.8 million pension pot, with an agreement for further advice to be given.But he lost around £300,000 after failing to comply with tax laws resulting in fines.In a statement, read to the court, Mr Bolden, who works for the London based private bank, Shipley Brown, said: “Dr Crichton claimed the advise had caused him to lose money in the region of six figures.“He delayed and missed tax deadlines, incurring a penalty. He sent me dozens of messages, he would not accept we were not at fault.”I was told by police about a threat that had been made to my life online. It was a total shock to me and to my family.”The messages he sent were desperate, rather than outright threatening. They were more an indication of a deteriorating mental state.” The prosecutor said: “The defendant’s intention could not be clearer. The steps he took were very clearly an attempt to solicit, ask for, request, seek a murder.” read more

Alphamin reports detailed design and budget estimates

first_imgCanadian tin mine developer Alphamin Resources has announced the results of detailed design work and budget estimates for its 80.75% owned Bisie tin project in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The work has resulted in an improvement in several operational parameters as well as an increase in proven and probable reserves to 4.67 Mt at 3.58% Sn.The report explains that while the fundamental mining method has not changed, the layout and mine design parameters have improved since the updated feasibility study published in June 2016. The increase in tin price has enabled a reduction in cutoff grade from 1.8% to 1.4%. This has enabled a 10% increase in mined tonnage and a 2.5-year increase in the life of the mine to 12.5 years. Thanks to these changes, the average annual production has changed to 9,642 t, while the cash cost of production has risen 19% to $8,837/t of tin produced. The all-in capital cost has also increased to $151.4 million from $124.4 million. The report states that construction of the mine and associated infrastructure is targeted to take place prior to December 2018.Alphamin CEO, Boris Kamstra, stated: “The completion of the FEED and CBE phase marks another important and exciting milestone as Alphamin advances the Project towards becoming the first industrial mine in DRC’s North Kivu Province.”The ITRI view is the “project is globally competitive and significant both in terms of its high tin grades, low-operating costs and projected output. The project’s main barrier to development has always been the perceived investment risk in DRC, where the project is located. However, the company is taking positive steps to mitigate security risks, with an artisanal and small scale miner (ASM) strategy currently being implemented so that ASM miners are able to work legally off the Alphamin concession.last_img read more

Former Education Minister calls for Premier to reveal all about her termination

Connolly on Friday held a press conference and in the room at her office in Tropicana Plaza were supporters expressing concern at how the revocation was done, including Football Association president, Sonia BienAime who felt satisfied with Mrs. Connolly’s work so far as Sports minister. BienAime said, “I’m talking about everything that you have done. If you are going to be given the opportunity to officially abreast Hon. Malcolm Evadne who the public has a right to know.”The Premier on Tuesday said confidentiality statutes in both the PDM and the Cabinet are why she cannot detail her reason for revoking the ministerial portfolio of Connolly and while Connolly was also tight lipped about what happened at the NGC meeting of the People’s Democratic Movement a week ago today. However Connolly urged the Premier to reveal the evidence and that included any tapes or recordings of what may or may not have been offensively said about the Premier, saying, “If there are tapes out there, bring the tapes.”We asked Mrs. Connolly again if she cussed out the Premier during the ordeal about relatives’ arguments on access to medical care abroad, she said no… again. “I did not cuss out the Premier. I am a professional and I understand the sensitivity of the situation at the hospital so nothing was said.”Hon Connolly offered that she believes she was fired because the Premier has a personal problem with her, used her to win the General Election and picked on her and her Ministry during these first six months in office.  Connolly added, “There seemed to be a focus by the Premier on my Ministry that did not seem to apply to any other ministry. Every step was highlighted, every success ignored.”Josephine Connolly said she remains on the PDM side, that she can work with her party and enjoys a good relationship with her other PDM colleagues.#MagneticMediaNews#JosephineConnollylast_img read more

Portland City Council to tax organisations that pay CEO 100 times more

first_imgPortland City Council, Oregon, US, is to impose a surtax on publicly-traded organisations that pay chief executive officers (CEOs) 100 times more than the median employee.The pay ratio surtax is applicable for publicly-traded organisations that operate in Portland, and are subject to the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) pay ratio reporting requirements, effective from 1 January 2017. The new tax will also come into effect from this date and be based on the information provided in the pay ratio reports.The SEC pay ratio disclosure rule requires public organisations to report on the ratio of compensation of the organisation’s CEO to that of the compensation received by the median employee.The pay ratio tax, which will be paid in addition to Portland’s current 2.2% business license tax, will see a surtax of 10% of base tax liability imposed on an organisation that reports a pay ratio where the CEO earns between 100 and 250 times more than that of the median employee.If the organisation discloses a pay ratio of 250:1 or more then a surtax of 25% of base tax liability will be imposed.The revenue from the pay ratio tax, which is expected be between $2.5 million and $3.5 million annually, will accrue to Portland’s general fund, increasing funding for the services provided by the Joint Office of Homeless Services.The new tax regime could impact on 550 publicly-traded organisations that currently pay the city’s business license tax.Steve Novick, City of Portland commissioner, said: “When I first read about the idea of applying a higher tax rate to [organisations] with extreme ratios of CEO pay to typical [employee] pay, I thought it was a fascinating idea, the closest thing I’d seen to a tax on inequality itself.“Extreme economic inequality is, next to global warming, the biggest problem we have in our society. The top 1%, and especially the top one-tenth of 1%, have a far larger share of wealth and income than they did 40 years ago.”last_img read more

Pair of manatees sent home after months of rehab

first_imgVIRGINIA KEY, FLA. (WSVN) – A pair of manatees have returned to the wild after recovering from injuries suffered in a boating accident.Both Reya and Leia spent the last eight months in Virgina Key’s Miami Seaquarium. The manatees underwent rehabilitation that proved to be successful.“Both of them suffered severe boat strikes,” said Miami Seaquarium’s Animal Care Supervisor Jessica Schiffhauer. “Reya was what we call a floater, so she had an air packet making it hard for her to navigate the water column.”Leia, meanwhile, is what Schiffhauer called a “sinker” as a result of puss and broken ribs.Back in March, both manatees were rescued and began their rehabilitation within days of one another. “Reya is about two years old and Leia is about a year and a half,” said Schiffhauer.Both manatees have doubled in weight since their initial arrival to the Seaquarium, said Schiffhauer.November is Manatee Awareness Month, and Miami Seaquarium has emphasized that the Florida manatee is endangered due in part to natural and man-made causes. According to officials, boat strikes are what harm manatees the most. “Please, please be aware of the speed limit zones,” said Schiffhauer. “I know yesterday was a big day for us because they started the speed limit zones again.”Schiffhauer added tips for spotting manatees while out on the water. “You can look for their noses coming up for breathing, and there’s also a very distinct circle you’ll see at the top of the water. You’ll see it from their tail.”Reya headed back home to Stuart. Leia, meanwhile, made her way to Fort Pierce, where she was released back into the water.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

Patient information and ultrasound images can be quickly transferred to the SWS program over either a wireless or Ethernet connection and automatically pre-populate patient information forms built into SWS. The SWS program will support any number of user accounts within a department and is capable of importing ultrasound studies from multiple SonoSite systems. Simplified system administration also provides flexibility for managing users and audit logging user activity. The software operates on both PC and Macintosh platforms and is server based—accessed within the department’s firewall via laptop or desktop using the local area network (LAN) available to specific departments. “SonoSite Workflow Solutions will be indispensable for any department performing quality assurance, and will save time for departments wanting control over their ultrasound studies,” said Dr. Alfredo Sabbaj, M.D., MA, assistant professor, department of Emergency Medicine, Oregon Health and Science University in Portland. “With the SWS program I can review and archive studies, credential and generate reports all in one place rather than having to use multiple programs in sequence or go through another department’s software to do the same thing. Also for teaching hospitals, SWS allows residents to get feedback on their studies faster, and the more feedback they get the quicker they learn.” For more information: www.sonosite.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Ultrasound Imaging | July 26, 2019 Intelligent Ultrasound Group Collaborating With the National Imaging Academy Wales Artificial intelligence (AI)-based ultrasound software and simulation company Intelligent Ultrasound Group plc (AIM:… read more News | Clinical Decision Support | July 18, 2019 Johns Hopkins Named Qualified Provider-led Entity to Develop Criteria for Diagnostic Imaging On June 30, 2019, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced the Johns Hopkins University School… read more Technology | Interventional Radiology | August 16, 2019 Profound Medical Receives U.S. FDA 510(k) Clearance for Tulsa-Pro Profound Medical Corp. announced it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to… read more A nurse examines a patient in the Emergency Department of Cincinnati Children’s, where researchers successfully tested artificial intelligence-based technology to improve patient recruitment for clinical trials.

SKorea court suspends nut rage executives prison term

first_img Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — A South Korean court Friday suspended the prison term of the former Korean Air executive whose onboard “nut rage” tantrum delayed a flight last year, immediately ending her incarceration.Cho Hyun-ah, who is the daughter of the airline’s chairman, did not violate aviation security law when she ordered the chief flight attendant off a Dec. 5 flight, forcing it to return to the gate at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York, according to the Seoul High Court. The aviation security law is meant to regulate highly dangerous acts such as hijacking. But the upper court said Friday that there wasn’t a big safety threat posed by Cho’s actions, and returning the plane that was taxiing did not constitute forcing a change in the plane’s route.Kim Sang-hwan, head of the three judge upper court panel, said that even though Cho used violence against crew members, she should be given a second chance. The judge also cited her “internal change” since she began serving her prison term as a reason for lessening the sentence.The upper court also took into consideration that Cho is the mother of 2-year-old twins and had never committed any offense before. She has resigned from her position at the airline.“It appears that she will have to live under heavy criticism from society and stigma,” said Kim.Copyright © The Associated Press.

She has been locked up since her December arrest.She achieved worldwide notoriety after an onboard tantrum triggered when a first class flight attendant served her macadamia nuts in a bag instead of on a dish. Cho, head of the airline’s cabin service at the time, had a heated, physical confrontation with members of the crew.Swarmed by reporters at the court, she made no comment in front of the TV cameras, bowing her head and burying her face in her hands as the media pressed in and yelled for her to say something.The incident was a lightning rod for anger in a country where the economy is dominated by family-run conglomerates known as chaebol that often act above the law.“If she was released because she showed repentance, other criminals should be equally released,” said 19-year-old college student Kim Ryeong-hui. “I think the court went easy on her. I feel angry when people mistreat other people in lower ranks.”The lower court had convicted Cho of forcing a flight to change its route, obstructing the flight’s captain in the performance of his duties, forcing a crew member off a plane and assaulting a crew member. It found her not guilty of interfering with a transport ministry investigation into the incident. Cho pleaded not guilty and prosecutors had called for three years in prison.

Record first quarter sales for TravelManagers

first_imgMichael GazalRecord first quarter sales for TravelManagersTravelManagers’ dream start to 2018 continues, with the company announcing this year’s first quarter as their best-ever first quarter trading.TravelManagers’ Executive General Manager, Michael Gazal, says that whilst the company continues to attract new personal travel managers (PTMs), much of this first quarter growth is due to expansion in existing PTMs’ businesses.“Our PTMs have achieved fantastic results by focusing on the acquisition of new clients and the expansion of existing client files,” says Gazal. “With our continued focus on these dual objectives we forecast TravelManagers is well-placed to continue on its current growth path for the rest of 2018 and into 2019.”The company has recently celebrated record sales in February, which Gazal says placed TravelManagers in an ideal position to finish the quarter strongly.“Our first quarter total sales for 2018 were up by almost ten percent on the same quarter in 2017, driven by growth in most destinations. For example, our South America market has grown by close to 30 percent, facilitated in part to recent increases in direct flights.”According to Gazal, TravelManagers’ South America cruise and touring components also increased significantly: close to 100 percent and more than 140 percent respectively. Australia domestic travel has also grown by twenty percent compared with the same quarter last year, despite suggestions from some areas that this segment is being increasingly purchased online.“In a marketplace where many competitors are increasingly offering commoditised product,” he explains, “what sets TravelManagers apart from other travel businesses is that our PTMs have achieved outstanding results by focusing on creating customised itineraries which are tailored to their individual clients’ requirements.”Fabiana LorenzonFor personal travel manager Fabiana Lorenzon, representative for Innaloo, closing the first quarter of 2018 on a high comes as confirmation that the TravelManagers’ model and focus on personalised service really works.“For me, the key destinations to watch this year include South America, the USA and Canada, South East Asia and Africa,” Lorenzon predicts, noting that perennial star performer Europe, “is also expected to continue to perform strongly as well.”TravelManagers say that they are not content to rest on their laurels at this point in the year and are predicting further significant growth for the balance of 2018.“We have an impressive group of PTMs working hard to provide the best possible service to their clients, backed by a dedicated National Partnership Office (NPO) team who are working hard to provide every possible assistance in making this happen,” says Gazal.For more information or to speak to someone confidentially about TravelManagers please contact Suzanne Laister on 1800 019 599.Source = TravelManagerslast_img read more

BoC retirement scheme comes into force

first_imgBank of Cyprus (BoC) put a voluntary retirement scheme into force Monday, in a bid to shed around 1,000 jobs.The scheme, which has been rejected by the union of bank employees, will be valid until July 26.It provides that those who opt out would receive a month’s salary for every two years of service, plus five monthly salaries.Compensation would be up to €150,000 for each person leaving, the bank said, and employees would keep their medical and life insurance coverage until the end of 2014.The employee union, ETYK, has said that he plan was doomed to fail.One of the problems is the workers’ provident fund.The union argued that there remained a lack of clarity over how much an employee opting for the voluntary retirement scheme would get from their provident fund.The lender said the scheme was generous and urged staff to take advantage or face being made redundant later on under worse conditions.BoC, owned by its biggest clients after their uninsured deposits were seized and converted to equity to help its recapitalisation, said the scheme would be open to all staff, including those at subsidiaries.Its staff numbers swelled to about 5,600 after it took on 2,400 from now-defunct Laiki Bank, the island’s second- largest lender which was forced to wind down after being hit by exposure to Greek debt.Under terms of an international aid package, depositors in BoC saw their accounts raided in a process known as a bail-in.The state also received €10 billion in aid from the EU and the International Monetary Fund.Provident funds were not exempted, although the government said it would try to reduce the losses.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementBad Digestion Slowing You Down?
