She has clashed with fellow MPC member Andy Haldane over the shape of the recovery, which Haldane, the Bank’s chief economist, insitits will be relatively quick and V-shaped. “Another factor interrupting the V is a very weak global outlook, with high uncertainties, particularly with a second wave already striking many countries,” she added. “Flare-ups like we’re seeing may potentially lead to more localised lockdowns and will keep interrupting that V[-shaped recovery].” The economist told the Sunday Telegraph that it was too early to know whether the scaled-back job support plans unveiled by chancellor Rishi Sunak last week would be enough to stave off a significant rise in unemployment once the furlough scheme ends in October.

Sunday 27 September 2020 12:43 pm Tenreyro said that evidence from the eurozone and Japan showed that cutting interest rates below zero had succeeded in reducing companies’ borrowing costs and did not make it unprofitable for banks to lend. The BoE said in August that it was examining the case for negative rates more closely, and said earlier this month that it would take a detailed look at whether the policy could be feasible during the fourth quarter. Tenreyro said she expected Britain’s rebound from the historic 20 per cent drop in GDP in the second quarter to lose pace as coronavirus cases rise across the country.

Alaska Native Arts & Culture | Education | Juneau | Southeast | SyndicatedCultural landscape conference focuses on Native educationMay 4, 2017 by Ed Schoenfeld, CoastAlaska News Share:James White teaches a lesson on halibut fishing during Sealaska Heritage Institute’s Open the Box Math and Culture Academy in July 2016. (Photo by Nobu Koch/Sealaska Heritage Institute)Teachers from around Southeast Alaska will gather in Juneau next month to discuss culturally responsive education.A conference called Our Cultural Landscape will focus on helping educators better teach Native students.Jackie Kookesh is education director of the Sealaska Heritage Institute, which is organizing the event.“We think that teachers, when they understand, they begin to understand they’re a part of the cultural landscape here as well. Then they get grounded. And I think it provides a shift for educators to look at their relationship as a teacher in the classroom,” she said.The conference is June 1-3 and is open to teachers, administrators, classroom aides and those working in early childhood education.Kookesh said the approach is of use to more than Native students.“We feel it benefits all the students when you have a culturally responsive classroom and you have a culturally responsive teacher who is aware and knows. We hope that that approach will engage kids,” she said.Guest speakers include Christopher Blodgett, a Washington State University faculty member and clinical psychologist. He’s known for developing a system to better understand and track childhood and family trauma.James White shows traditional fishing techniques during a culture academy in July 2016. (Photo by Nobu Koch/Sealaska Heritage Institute)Other speakers are Zaretta Hammond, Larry Merculieff and Libby Roderick.Hammond is a national education consultant and author of “Culturally Responsive Teaching and the Brain: Promoting Authentic Engagement and Rigor for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students.”Merculieff was chosen by elders to serve as a bridge between traditional Aleut culture and the outside world. He established the University of Washington’s first indigenous student education program.Roderick is associate director for the Center for Advancing Faculty Excellence at the University of Alaska Anchorage and director of its Difficult Dialogues Initiative. She is the editor of “Alaska Native Cultures and Issues: Responses to Frequently Asked Questions.”Retired Juneau teacher and principal Carmen Mastronardo Katasse, a conference planner, said educators need to know Native culture is not a thing of the past.“The culture isn’t gone. It’s still here. And so our hope is that teachers leave this conference with a better understanding of not only the local culture, but the art, the history and how place-based education does increase student achievement, decreases dropouts and engages students because they feel connected,” she said.The conference is an outgrowth of an intensive training program for Juneau teachers.It will be held at Juneau-Douglas High School and the Heritage Institute’s Walter Soboleff Building.Share this story:

The Alberta Securities Commission (ASC) is warning Alberta investors of a ‘recovery room’ scheme that is targeting Morgan Dragon Development Corp. investors. Recovery room schemes typically involve companies that contact investors, who have money tied up in an illiquid investment, with an offer to buy their shares at an inflated price. Once investors agree to the deal, the operators of the scheme ask the investor to first pay a fee for the service/transaction. In reality, the operators keep the fee but do not repurchase the shares, effectively victimizing the investors a second time. The ASC has been alerted that G.W. Trust and Transfer Services Limited, purportedly operating out of Thailand, is contacting MDDC investors and offering to buy their company shares. As part of the pitch, investors are told this is a limited-time offer and that before receiving any money from the purchase, the investor must first pay a “non-resident tax” based on a percentage of the inflated share price, usually in the thousands of dollars. The ASC is cautioning MDDC investors against participating in the offer or sending money to this company. The ASC says there are a number of red flags that lead the ASC to believe this is a recovery room scheme, such as: unrealistically high returns; money sent offshore; money must be paid up front; pressure to act quickly; and spelling errors in the documents related to the offer. Anyone who has been approached with an offer by a company offering to purchase MDDC securities is asked to contact the ASC Public Inquiries at email@example.com.

RelatedBorrowing Ceiling Raised to $700 Billion Advertisements RelatedBorrowing Ceiling Raised to $700 Billion FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail A Bill to amend the Loan Act, which will increase the government’s borrowing ceiling from $650 billion to $700 billion, was passed in the Senate on Friday, March 2.Leader of Government Business in the Senate, A.J. Nicholson in piloting the Bill, pointed out that this amendment was designed to “facilitate government’s programmed borrowings over the medium term, and to allow for the increases in the (debt) stock, as a result of the capitalization of interest costs accrued on debt securities issued by the Bank of Jamaica, for FINSAC related operations and obligations”. Senator Nicholson, who is also Attorney General and Minister of Justice, noted that as of March 31, 2006 the total loan raised under the Act was $623.63 billion. This amount comprised of $493.376 billion on the domestic side and $130.252 on the external side. “At September 30, the amount raised was $645.818 billion, comprising domestic debt of $514.333 billion and $131.486 billion on the external side,” he added.Opposition Senator, Christopher Tufton said that while the Opposition was not opposed to the concept of borrowing, he urged the Senate to examine the tangible benefits that ordinary Jamaicans have derived from the government’s increased borrowing over the years.“The government needs to send the people of Jamaica a signal that there is going to be a relationship between the borrowing and the returns to the Jamaican people, so that people can at least be comforted that over time, they are going to see benefits from government’s borrowing,” he said.Responding to the concern raised by Senator Tufton, Government Senator, Trevor Munroe pointed to the Jamaica Social Investment Fund (JSIF), as one of the programmes that have benefited from government’s borrowing.He added that the ninth annual report of the JSIF showed that at the community level, many persons have benefited from numerous projects and programmes, including the Early Childhood Centre for children with disabilities and for rehabilitation, in Spanish Town, St. Catherine; the Anchovy Primary School fencing project in St. James; construction of the Buff Bay Baptist Basic School in Portland; and the Central Village Health Centre rehabilitation and expansion project, among others.The Loan Act of 1964 constitutes the legal basis for borrowings to finance government’s expenditure programmes. It confers on the Minister of Finance the power to raise, by loan, a sum not exceeding the figure stipulated in the Act and its subsequent amendments.

Massive Gathering in Brisbane Australia Supports Indian Farmers Leaders InstituteThe farmers’ rising voice of dissent found a substantive and immensely powerful support in the well-read, erudite community of Brisbane. In a gathering which was emphatically one of the largest in the world in support of the farmers in India, the protestors held placards and banners voicing their support for the farming community.Dr. Bernard Malik, renowned educationist, philanthropist and businessman, had given out the call to mobilize support for the protesting farmers in New Delhi. “As academicians and equivocal citizens, it is our moral calling to strive to raise awareness and mobilize support for our struggling brothers and sisters”, expressed Dr. Malik.It was indeed a heart-warming sight to see as a sea of humanity across myriad age groups and communities rallying together for a cause which has surely raked up global conscience.With a backdrop of intensely conflicting, expected repercussions, the bill has indeed caused quite a ripple, all across the farming community of India. While the government argues it will, help in regulating prices as well as offer the farmers a better bargaining capacity. “Unfortunately, an average Indian farmer does not have the sources or the infrastructural support to take benefit of either”, opined Dr. Malik. ” Purpose of this massive gathering is two fold, one to sed strong message of support to millions of farmers camped in New Delhi and put Indian Government on notice of the international attention to this issue.”A number of prominent speakers addressed the protestors, including Banwant Sahnipur, Balwinder Kaur, Neetu Suhag, Mandeep Punia, Naginder Dhaliwal and Gurlal Singh Gold Coast.Representing the sentiment of the 70,000 strong Indian Community in Queensland, theprotest promises to draw international attention to the burning, contemporary issue. The protesting farmers apprehend a major backlash to their livelihood and autonomy, should the bill be implemented in its entirety.Sarabjeet Sohi and Satwinder Teenu played a pivotal role in organizing the rally. The organizers were also grateful to Councilman Ryan Murphy, Lord Mayor and Hon Mark Ryan, the Police Minister for their unrelenting support. /Public Release.
