The Canadian Press Companies in this story: (TSX:POW, TSX:PFS) MONTREAL — Power Corporation of Canada says its profit for participating shareholders fell to $292 million in the first quarter, from $525 million in the year-earlier period when it recorded gains from the sales of some investments.The Montreal-based financial services and investment company says the net earnings for the quarter ended March 31 amounted to 63 cents per share, down from $1.13 per share in the 2018 first quarter.Its main subsidiary, Power Financial Corp., contributed $350 million of the net income, down from $383 million last year.The biggest decline, however, was at the segment that includes Sagard Investment Funds, where net income dropped to $11 million from $227 million in last year’s first quarter.Last year’s first quarter included distributions from the sale of Sagard Europe investments.Power Corporation also announced a six per cent increase in its quarterly dividend for participating preferred shares and subordinate voting shares. The payout will rise to 40.5 cents from 38.20 cents per share. Power Corporation continues to be the majority shareholder in Power Financial Corp. but it’s stake has fallen to 64.1 per cent from 65.5 per cent. The parent company is also the owner of the La Presse news organization.
In addition, the DPR accepts a degree of liability for client GDPR violations. If a company outside the EU fails to meet GDPR’s requirements and then fails to meet fines or provide requisite compensation, its representative may be asked to make payment in its place (as originally set out in Recital 80 of GDPR and since confirmed in the European Data Protection Board’s guidance in March 2018. As a result, the representative role will mostly be taken up by specialized firms and not individuals within the non-EU company itself (compared to the DPO role, which is mainly taken up by an individual rather than a company). GDPR: A Boring but Important Update Martha Buyer July 25, 2019 As the highest EU court reviews whether certain data export/import strictures are adequate, U.S. companies should be on high alert. What are the liabilities for a company that doesn’t have a DPR?Failure to meet Article 27 of GDPR can result in a fine of up to the larger of €10 million [approximately $13 million] or 2% global revenue (Article 83(4)(a)). To learn more, I contacted Tim Bell, managing director of DPR Group, a provider of EU DPR services through its network of 28 locations (one in each EU member state). Tim prefers the term “EU representative” to DPR, use of which can cause some confusion with the separate role of data protection officer (DPO) found in GDPR Article 37. DPR and DPO are distinct roles that should be undertaken by different people at different companies; still, many people confuse them. What is the requirement for a DPR, as spelled out in Article 27?Article 27 of GDPR requires that a company which a) is outside the EU (i.e., has no EU office), and b) provides goods or services into the EU (whether at a cost or for free) or monitors people there (e.g., follows individuals’ Internet activity with use of a cookie), must appoint an EU representative. This applies whether the company is a data controller or a data processor for the purposes of GDPR. What are the responsibilities of a DPR?The primary operational role is to act as the point of contact for EU-based data subjects and data protection authorities who wish to contact the non-EU data controller/processor. The representative will hold copies of the data controller/processor’s Article 30 records of processing, and make these available to the EU data protection authorities if requested. Good representatives will have connections with translation companies, law firms, and privacy consultants so they can direct their clients to such professional advisors as necessary. See All in Privacy & Compliance » GDPR 102: Implementing the DPR Role Gary Audin July 05, 2019 Sorting out the complexity involved with employing a data protection representative Log in or register to post comments Privacy by Degree Martha Buyer September 19, 2019 Some thoughts on privacy rights in the U.S., and the implications of impending privacy legislation How do you qualify to become a DPR?There’s no specific qualification required by GDPR for an individual or organization to be appointed as an EU representative. However, in order to adequately represent non-EU clients, the earlier noted European Data Protection Board’s guidance makes clear that the representative should be established in the EU country where its non-EU client has the largest number of data subjects, and data subjects in other EU member states should also find the representative “easily accessible.” There are exemptions — mainly for public sector organizations and matters outside the scope of EU law (e.g., national security). There’s also an exclusion for companies that undertake only “occasional” EU data processing, but as “occasional” has yet to be clarified, it might be best not to rely on this exemption until there’s some clarity. (When asked, I usually say that if a company’s data processing is more than 5-10% in the EU, or if it processes data for more than a few hundred EU individuals, it should be very cautious when relying on this exemption.) Privacy Matters: Enterprises at an Inflection Point Dave Michels July 29, 2019 Our digital breadcrumbs are all over enterprise communications and collaboration apps. What will become of all this data? DPR_774.jpg Are the GDPR regulations static or changing? The GDPR itself is static for the moment, but its transcription into local member state law is variable across member states. Differences in interpretation by national courts and data protection authorities are likely to mean that how the GDPR is intended to operate remains open to interpretation in some areas. If you do business with EU citizens, you must comply with General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), including the mandate in Article 27 requiring many non-EU companies to appoint a data protection representative (DPR) in the EU. GDPR court rulings are only starting to come through (the process can take a long time, from the report of an incident, through an investigation by the relevant data protection authority to the eventual court proceedings).Tags:News & ViewsGDPRdata protection representativedata protection officerPrivacy & ComplianceNews & Views Articles You Might Like The same guidance also confirms that the EU representative and DPO should operate separately from one another, because of the potential risk for a conflict of interest between them. EU representatives act entirely at the instruction of their clients, whereas DPOs are required to have a degree of independence, able to raise concerns to the senior management of the companies for which they act. GDPR, Year One Gary Audin May 24, 2019 Telemarketing, promotional emails, and video surveillance are among the most common complaints, the European Commission has found. Do you expect interpretations to come from courts? Which ones? This is definitely expected. Ultimately the European Court of Justice (ECJ) will decide on the detailed interpretation of the role of the EU representative, but in the meantime the initial interpretation will come from the EU data protection authorities. The rulings made by these authorities will then be subject to appeal in local (EU member state) court, which will have the option to refer questions relating to areas on which they’re uncertain to the ECJ.
William Lacy Swing, the Special Representative of UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan for the DRC, travelled to the Rwandan capital, Kigali, to speak to Rwandan authorities, according to a statement issued by MONUC.The statement added that Mr. Swing would discuss MONUC’s role in the disarmament, demobilization, repatriation, resettlement and reintegration of foreign armed groups in the DRC.Earlier this week, Mr. Annan praised the voluntary repatriation of 100 high-level members of the rebel Democratic Liberation Forces of Rwanda (FDLR) from the DRC back to Rwanda.

Eoliennes en mer : la compétition est lancée Les candidats en lice pour l’installation de cinq parcs éoliens offshore au large des côtes normandes et bretonnes devront avoir rendu ce mercredi leur dossier à la Commission de régulation de l’énergie (CRE). Demain matin au plus tard, les consortiums candidats à l’appel d’offres pour la réalisation de parcs éoliens en mer au large de la Bretagne et la Normandie devront avoir déposé leurs dossiers auprès de la Commission de régulation de l’énergie (CRE). Alors que celle-ci doit rendre sa décision en avril prochain, trois consortiums menés par EDF, GDF Suez et l’espagnol Iberdrola sont en lice.À lire aussiDes étudiants créent une lampe innovante qui fonctionne grâce à l’énergie des plantesLancé l’année dernière, cet appel d’offres dont l’investissement total est estimé à quelque 10 milliards d’euros, prévoit l’installation de 500 à 600 éoliennes au large des côtes de la Manche et de l’Atlantique. Des éoliennes offshores réparties sur cinq sites (Le Tréport, Fécamp, Courseulles-sur-Mer, Saint-Brieuc et Saint-Nazaire), qui produiront jusqu’à 3 gigawatts d’électricité, soit l’équivalent de 3 réacteurs nucléaires.Comme l’explique les Echos, les ambitions des trois candidats ne sont pas identiques. Celui que forme GDF Suez avec Vinci et l’allemand E.ON vise ainsi “les trois parcs normands (Fécamp, le Tréport et Courseulles-sur-Mer) avec les turbines d’Areva et celui de Saint-Brieux avec celles de Siemens”. Pour renforcer leurs chances de remporter l’appel d’offres, les candidats ont allié engagements environnementaux et promesses d’emplois en s’associant à des équipementiers français pour la fabrication des éoliennes. Des fabricants qui se sont engagés à ouvrir des usines en France.Le 10 janvier 2012 à 20:16 • Maxime Lambert

Myanmar border guard police stand guard at Goke Pi outpost in Buthidaung during a government organised media tour in Rakhine, Myanmar, on 7 January 2019. — Photo: ReutersMyanmar’s government says it has ordered the military to “crush” rebels in the western state of Rakhine, following raids by insurgents that killed 13 police officers earlier this month.The United Nations says fighting between the Myanmar military and Arakan Army, which recruits from among the mainly Buddhist Rakhine ethnic group, has forced about 5,000 people from their homes in the state in the past month.The latest violence underscores the complexity of the ethnic divisions that have long scarred Rakhine. In 2017 attacks on security posts in the north of the state by insurgents from the Muslim Rohingya minority provoked a military crackdown that sent more than 730,000 fleeing to neighboring Bangladesh, according to UN agencies, and sparked the biggest crisis of Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi’s young administration.Aid workers say military aircraft and trucks have been seen arriving in Rakhine since early January – raising fears conflict could intensify once again in the state.The group’s rise threatens to further undermine Suu Kyi’s hopes of securing peace across Myanmar, but who are the fighters of the Arakan Army, and what do they want?JADE MINES TO SNIPER RIFLESThe Arakan Army says it formed nearly a decade ago to fight for self-determination for Rakhine, which it says has been exploited by a remote central government.Many early recruits were ethnic Rakhine Buddhists who had traveled to northern Myanmar to make their fortune toiling in the jade mines there.They gathered and trained in territory along Myanmar’s border with China that is held by the Kachin Independence Army (KIA), one of the largest ethnic armed groups still fighting the Myanmar military. Arakan Army fighters have fought the military alongside the KIA as part of a “northern alliance” in northern Shan state since late 2016.Arakan Army forces have also moved into the rugged western borderlands with India and Bangladesh, where they are believed to number about 3,000.In parallel, the group has launched a propaganda push aimed at inspiring an uprising across Rakhine in 2020.Slick online videos show young men and women insurgents marching, wrestling and firing modern assault weapons and sniper rifles. They often feature the group’s charismatic chief, Twan Mrat Naing, who wears thick-rimmed glasses and a military beret.ETHNIC GRIEVANCESThe Arakan Army in its propaganda largely steers clear of the communal conflict between Buddhists and Muslims that has riven Rakhine in recent years.Instead the group has found fertile ground appealing to a sense of economic and historical injustice directed at the Myanmar state and its Bamar ethnic majority.Though rich in oil and other natural resources and a focus of China’s Belt and Road Initiative investment drive, Rakhine remains one of Myanmar’s poorest states. Only 17 per cent of households in the state have access to safe drinking water year-round, far below the proportion elsewhere in Myanmar, according to a 2017 World Bank survey. Nearly 300,000 households there do not have a toilet, it found.The coastal area now known as Rakhine was historically an independent kingdom, Arakan, until a Burmese invasion in the 18th century. A demonstration in January last year to mark the anniversary of the Arakan kingdom’s overthrow ended in bloodshed when police opened fire on protesters.The figurehead of the state’s most popular political party, the Arakan National Party (ANP) was arrested soon after with another activist and charged with high treason. They remain on trial. Many ethnic Rakhines resent that Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy installed its own chief minister in the state after taking power in 2016, despite the ANP winning most seats in the state at elections in 2015.INSURGENT INFILTRATIONAfter only sporadic encounters with the military in recent years, the Arakan Army has reported at least two dozen clashes with security forces in the last few months. It says it is responding to military aggression in Rakhine that has also targeted civilians.“Rakhine state must have its own army,” Arakan Army chief Twan Mrat Naing told local news site the Irrawaddy this week. “Having an armed group means the survival of the Rakhine ethnicity.”The government describes the group as a terrorist organisation and says it could destabilise the state for years to come.Analysts say the Arakan Army, which has trained with Kachin rebels, poses a potentially greater military threat than the ill-equipped Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army that precipitated the 2017 crisis.Arakan Army (AA) fighters appear to be “well-trained and generally extremely well-equipped”, said Anthony Davis, a security analyst with Jane’s at IHS-Markit, describing the recent violence as a “watershed” for the conflict.“What we’ve seen is the AA shifting from a preparatory phase of political and military infiltration into northern Rakhine state that began in 2015,” said Davis.“They’ve now taken it to a much higher level, operating at platoon and even company strength across almost all the townships in the north of the state, and that’s new.”
Imran KhanPrime minister Imran Khan will travel to Washington to meet US president Donald Trump on 22 July, the Pakistani foreign ministry said Thursday, a rare visit between leaders of the sometimes prickly allies.The visit — Khan’s first to the US since coming to power last year — came at Trump’s invitation, a Pakistani foreign office spokesman said at a weekly briefing, adding: “The focus will be to refresh the bilateral relationship”.He gave no further details.The announcement comes as the US is seeking Pakistan’s help in finding a way out of neighbouring Afghanistan, where American forces are now in their 18th year of war.Ostensibly allies, the US and Pakistan relationship has always been bumpy.The White House believes that the shadowy Pakistani military establishment has long helped fund and arm the Taliban, both for ideological reasons and to counter rising Indian influence in Afghanistan.Pakistan denies the claims and says it has paid the price for its alliance with the US in the so-called “war on terror”, with thousands of its citizens killed in its long struggle with militancy.Washington has long believed that a Pakistani crackdown on militancy could be pivotal in deciding the outcome of the war.Trump and Khan — both celebrities-turned-politicians whose love lives once made regular tabloid fare in the US and UK — have already clashed.Trump declared last year that he had cancelled assistance worth hundreds of millions of dollars because Islamabad does not do “a damn thing” for the US.At the time, Khan hit back at the criticism on Twitter, calling on the US president to name an ally that has sacrificed more against militancy.
Who was the real Billy the Kid? The Wild West speaks to the American mindset like no other period of American history. It was a time full of challenges, made by heroes and villains, and by lots of characters in between. Of the many icons that emerged from that time, Billy the Kid is one of the most renowned and controversial. Billy the Kid’s childhood is a mysterious one, but seems to be far from an immigrant’s fairy tale. Born in the fall of 1859 as Henry McCarthy, son of Catherine McCarthy – and supposedly Patrick McCarthy, though the identity of his father remains in doubt. Far from living the American dream, he grew up very poor in New York City. As first generation Irish immigrants young Henry would often speak Gaelic at home.Portrait of American gunman Billy the Kid (1859–1881)Much uncertainty surrounds what seems to have been a miserable youth, from the exact date he was born to the events of the first six years of his life. All seems to confirm, however, that he and his mother lived alone in high poverty in the Irish slums of New York. According to American Heritage, his father died soon after his birth, leaving his mother alone to take care of him.Unauthenticated greyscale group photo allegedly of Billy the Kid and Pat Garrett with 3 other men seated, in suits with hats.Catherine McCarthy eventually took her two sons, Henry –the future Billy the Kid– and Joseph to Indianapolis in the late 1860s, where she met William Antrim, a Civil War veteran. The couple kept moving west to Wichita, Kansas, then Denver, Colorado, and eventually to Santa Fe, New Mexico, where they got married in 1873.None of them knew that the New Mexico territory would later become the home of Billy the Kid’s legend. In 1874 his mother, Catherine, died of tuberculosis. According to History.com, the young Henry McCarthy was then left out alone because of his stepfather’s absence. Antrim indeed had become too obsessed with prospecting to take care of his step family, according to Legends of America. The orphaned Henry was left in the care of foster homes.Unretouched original ferrotype of William H. Bonney, c. 1880At this point in time, he was behaving in accordance with the law: he worked in a hotel, where he washed dishes and waited tables, and seems to have been friendly with customers and staff.But in 1875, McCarthy was caught stealing clothes from a Chinese laundromat. Charged with theft in what appeared to have been a bad prank, he escaped from the sheriff’s jailhouse by climbing up a chimney. This small crime would become the starting point of his outlaw life.Detail from photograph purporting to show Bonney (left) playing croquet in 1878His escape took him to Arizona, where he worked as a ranch hand. During this time, he fought with Apache Indians in the Guadalupe mountains, and stole horses from the U.S. Army with his accomplice Jack Mackie. In a strange turn of events, he then found a job at Camp Grant, an army post in Arizona.While working there, McCarthy was bullied by the civilian blacksmith of the post, Frank Cahill. After a card game in which they accused each other of cheating, Cahill threw McCarthy on the ground, who in turn shot Cahill with his Colt revolver. Cahill died the next day, while McCarthy was already on the run. This was McCarthy’s first recorded gunning down of a man.Henry Hooker, one-time employer of Billy the Kid, at his Sierra Bonita Ranch in southeast ArizonaIt was then that he decided to adopt the alias “William Bonney”, which led to others calling him “Billy the Kid”. After being on the run for quite some time, joining gangs and escaping jails, he met English ranch owner John C. Tunstall in Lincoln County, New Mexico.The Kid and Tunstall got along really well. After the Kid got arrested trying to steal cattle from him, Tunstall had decided to hire The Kid and dropped the charges against him. From there, the two developed a strong bond: as reported by Legends of America, it was the first time that Billy the Kid was entrusted by someone for honest work.Lincoln County Sheriff William J. Brady, 1872But on February 18, 1878, Tunstall was killed in the Lincoln County War. The English rancher had gotten into a territory dispute with Irish tycoons James Dolan and Lawrence Murphy, who were supported by local sheriff William Brady. The Kid was greatly affected by Tunstall’s passing, and immediately started to plan his revenge. He hired other gunslingers, many of whom had been employed by Tunstall, and formed a vigilante group called “The Regulators”.New Mexico Territorial Governor Lew Wallace in 1893While the Regulators started as a legal posse, they eventually did away with Sheriff Brady and his deputy George Hindman. This action got Billy indicted for murder, and made the Regulators outlaws, according to American Heritage.Billy the Kid then made a deal with Lew Wallace, the governor of the New Mexico territory who was seeking to put an end to the violence. He accepted submitting to a show arrest in order to testify against the outlaws responsible for the deaths that started the Lincoln County War, if his charges would be dropped.Billy the Kid’s headstone in Fort Sumner, New Mexico. Photo by Asagan CC BY-SA 3.0Unsure that the governor would keep his side of the bargain, the Kid escaped yet again, and was once again a fugitive. Billy the Kid then spent his time in the Pecos mountains, where he befriended a local bartender by the name of Pat Garrett. Garrett would later become the sheriff of Lincoln County in February 1880, and was warranted by Governor Wallace to arrest the Kid.Related Video: Rare Footage of Confederate Veterans Doing the Rebel YellGarrett would capture Billy the Kid in Stinking Springs on December 23, 1880. The sheriff had to deal with troubles from the crowd when he took the Kid through Santa Fe, where his trial began in April 1881. Sentenced to death for killing Sheriff Brady during the Lincoln County war, the Kid performed another miraculous escape before his execution, which was scheduled for May 13th.Portrait of Pat Garrett from ‘The Story of the Outlaws’The Kid escaped to Fort Sumner, New Mexico, and did not even try to keep a low profile, according to History.com. Garrett, who was still on his trail, eventually found him in July 1881.Read another story from us: Billy the Kid was trilingual, one of the language he spoke was GaelicFate had reserved one last surprise for the Kid: while he was on his way to buy meat from rancher Peter Maxwell, the man was being questioned by Pat Garrett on the Kid’s whereabouts. The legendary gunfight that ensued saw Billy the Kid die at only 21-years-old, mortally wounded in the head. The man who had come from nothing and lived a life with no future would go on to become one of the most well-known legends of the Wild West.

Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Carson said Monday that other countries _ such as Algeria, Mauritania and Chad _ also need to be involved in finding a solution to the Malian crisis, along with the United States, the European Union and others.“It is important that what goes on up there have the support of all of the states in the region,” he said. “The ECOWAS states, as well as Mauritania and Algeria and others in the area, must also be a part of this policy. After all, the states in the north have long borders with Mali.”The north of Mali, a predominantly moderate Muslim country, has become increasingly repressive in recent months, according to human rights groups. Islamists even stoned to death a couple accused of adultery.They have banned ring tones on mobile phones that are not Quranic verse readings, and prohibited cigarettes and alcohol. Women who wear jewelry or perfume, or fail to cover their heads can also face punishment.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Top Stories Associated PressDAKAR, Senegal (AP) – Military action will be needed to push radical Islamists out of northern Mali where they have carried out amputations and public whippings since seizing control of the region earlier this year, a top U.S. official said.Johnnie Carson, the U.S. assistant secretary of state for African affairs, told reporters that Mali must also establish a “strong, credible government” so that its military is capable of leading the effort to liberate the north. Al-Qaida-linked militants took advantage of a power vacuum in the distant capital back in March when mutinous soldiers overthrew the democratically elected government. Over the last six months, the militants have begun imposing their form of strict Islamic law known as Shariah.“They are responsible for terrorism, for kidnapping, and for robbery. This is an issue that must be dealt with through security and military means,” Carson said during a teleconference Monday.“But any military action up there must indeed be well planned, well organized, well resourced, and well thought through,” he added. “And it must, in fact, be agreed upon by those who are going to be most affected by it.”For months, the West African regional bloc known as ECOWAS has been calling for military intervention to help Malian forces retake the north from the Islamists.Mali’s transitional government has accepted the presence of a regional military force, though for long officials wavered on whether they wanted boots on the ground in southern Mali as well.The United States has expressed growing concern about the situation in northern Mali. Last week, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton called it “a powder keg that the international community cannot afford to ignore.” Get a lawn your neighbor will be jealous of Comments Share Men’s health affects baby’s health too Former Arizona Rep.

Survey: Consumer Confidence Reaches Highest Level in 2012 Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Capital Economics Confidence Consumer spending Investors Jobs Lenders & Servicers Processing Service Providers 2012-11-02 Tory Barringer in Data, Government, Origination, Secondary Market, Servicing Consumer confidence rose in October to its highest level this year, according to a survey conducted by “”Nielsen””:http://www.nielsen.com/global/en.html and released by “”The Conference Board””:http://www.conference-board.org/.[IMAGE]According to the research association’s Consumer Confidence Index, Americans are more optimistic in their views about both their present situation and their expectations for the near future.The overall index increased to 72.2 in October, up from 68.4 in September. Both sub-indexes improved, as well: The Present Situation Index now stands at 56.2 (from 48.7 before), and the Expectations Index is at 82.9 from 81.5 in September.””The Consumer Confidence Index increased again in October and is now at its highest level this year,”” said Lynn Franco, director of economic indicators at The Conference Board. “”Consumers were considerably more positive in their assessment of current conditions, with improvements in the job market as the major driver. Consumers were modestly more upbeat about their financial situation and the short-term economic outlook, and appear to be in better spirits approaching the holiday season.””The number of consumers claiming current business conditions are “”good”” rose to 16.5 percent, while those saying conditions are “”bad”” fell slightly to 33.1 percent. Consumers’ assessment of the labor market was also more positive, with the number of those stating jobs are “”plentiful”” increasing more than two percentage points to 10.3 points. The number of those claiming jobs are “”hard to get”” declined to 39.4 percent.Responses were more varied for the short-term outlook, but consumers still showed increased positivity. Those anticipating an improvement in business conditions over the next six months increased to 21.4 percent. However, those expecting conditions to worsen edged up slightly to 15.1 percent.The outlook for the labor market was also mixed. The number of consumers anticipating job growth in the months ahead increased to 19.2 percent, while those expecting fewer jobs increased to 20.3 percent. The proportion of consumers expecting an increase in their incomes increased slightly to 16.7 percent.While the survey’s results might be encouraging, some analysts are skeptical that the surge in confidence will last. In a response to The Conference Board’s release, “”Capital Economics””:http://www.capitaleconomics.com/ economist Amna Asaf says confidence is likely already turning around.””[T]he sample period ended around the middle of the month, so it didn’t pick up the bulk of the recent declines in stock markets,”” Asaf pointed out. “”In addition, it won’t have picked up any drop in confidence linked to Hurricane Sandy. ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├é┬ª Overall, encouraging, but we expect this improvement in confidence to fade, as Sandy, the looming fiscal cliff and lower equity prices all take a toll.”” November 2, 2012 479 Views Share
