first_imgTopics : Moon said the government will inject more than 30 trillion won (US$25 billion) into the economy to address the “grave” situation brought on by the outbreak.”The entire country has entered a war with the infectious disease,” Moon said, ordering all government agencies to operate around the clock.South Korea confirmed 477 new cases Tuesday, with two more deaths taking the toll to 28, the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in a statement.More than half of the cases have been linked to the Shincheonji Church of Jesus, a secretive religious group often described as a cult. A 61-year-old female Shincheonji member developed a fever on February 10 but attended at least four services in Daegu — the country’s fourth-largest city with a population of 2.5 million and the center of the outbreak — before being diagnosed.Authorities said more than 190,000 members had been checked as of Tuesday.Lee Man-hee, the 88-year-old founder of the sect, apologized for the outbreak on Monday — twice bowing his head to the ground at a televised press conference — insisting his organization was cooperating with the government’s containment efforts.Seoul city authorities have filed a complaint with prosecutors seeking to have him and other Shincheonji leaders charged with murder and other offences.Of the 4,812 cases nationwide, nearly 90 percent were in Daegu and the neighboring province of North Gyeongsang, the KCDC said.center_img South Korean President Moon Jae-in declared “war” against the coronavirus on Tuesday, placing all government agencies on a 24-hour emergency footing as the country’s total cases — the largest in the world outside China — approached 5,000.South Korea has seen a rapid rise in infections in recent days and scores of events — from K-pop concerts to sports seasons — have been cancelled or postponed over the contagion, with school and kindergarten breaks extended by three weeks nationwide.The central bank has warned of negative growth in the first quarter for the world’s 12th-largest economy, noting the epidemic will hit both consumption and exports.last_img read more

Tax evasion law “could cost big banks $100 million”

Posted on by

first_img 213 Views   no discussions MILAN (Reuters) – A U.S. law aimed at curbing tax evasion by citizens using foreign accounts could cost large multinational banks as much as $100 million apiece to implement in one-off systems costs, a top asset manager and a tax lawyer told a conference on Friday.The overall costs of implementing the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), could approach the more than $8 billion FATCA is due to raise over 10 years, he said.FATCA was introduced after high profile tax evasion cases.“With FATCA there is a cost on us in Europe but benefits in the U.S.. The benefit is $8.5 bln over 10 years … for multinational banks I have seen estimates of $100 million (each, in one-off costs),” said James Broderick, head of Europe, Middle East and Africa for JP Morgan Asset Management.“It would be easier to just write a cheque to the IRS (U.S. tax authority)”, he added.The $100 million figure is with regard to the costs of implementation for the banking systems of large, multi-jurisdictional banks, and not for an asset manager, he said.Speaking at the same conference, organized by Italy’s asset management association Assogestioni, tax expert Keith Lawson said he had also heard the $100 mln figure.Lawson, Senior Counsel Tax Law at ICI, the U.S. national association of U.S. investment companies, said aspects of FATCA were “draconian” but a repeal would be very difficult given the amount it would raise.Broderick said banks and wealth managers had to accept that FATCA, which starts coming into force in June 2013, would be implemented and they may have to change their business models.FATCA has drawn wide criticism from abroad, with banks and business people saying the new law turns them into agents of the IRS.Writing by Nigel Tutt; Editing by Greg MahlichYAHOO News Tweet LifestyleMoney Tax evasion law “could cost big banks $100 million” by: – November 18, 2011 Sharecenter_img Share Share Sharing is caring!last_img read more

Organizations preparing for move to new campus center

Posted on by

first_imgAs students prepare to leave campus, many organizations and offices are also preparing to move, leaving their current locations for nicer digs in the new Ronald Tutor Campus Center.On the move · Members of the Undergraduate Student Government will begin moving into their new office, pictured above, this summer. – Carlo Acenas | Daily Trojan The Alumni Center, Admission Center, Undergraduate Student Government, KSCR radio station, Program Board and a number of other Student Affairs’ organizations will be packing their boxes and finally making the move to the campus center this summer. These organizations were selected to move into the campus center by a university program planning team, according to Patrick Bailey, the associate dean and executive director of Student Life and Involvement.The move-in process will officially begin June 1, Bailey said. For more than three years, a moving committee has been collaborating with organizations to facilitate an easy and successful move. Officials will also be offering assistance to help the organizations move boxes to their new offices.“Representatives from each area have been working together to work out the details, from how the phones and computers are transferred to getting the new university mail codes, etc.,” Bailey wrote in an e-mail. “We also are working around university programs/events to ensure a smooth transition for everyone.”Most organizations are confident the move will be completed in time for the beginning of next semester.“I don’t foresee any complications because I think there will be enough people here over the summer to help with the move,” said Elizabeth Trower, senior director of communications for USG. “Things would have to go drastically wrong for us to not be settled before school starts.”Ruthie Pyles, the manager of the Admission Center, also said she thinks the move will go well, but the Admission Center is planning to be flexible in case it doesn’t.“I’m sure [the move] will go very smoothly, but with any sort of construction, there are always things that may arise, and we are planning to be as flexible as possible,” Pyles said. “I have every faith and confidence that all the main departments will be in and ready to go when students come back.”Some groups are struggling with their preparations for the move, however.To get ready for the move, Program Board has had to sort through its belongings and decide what is important and what’s not.“From what I’ve heard, there’s not a lot of storage space in the campus center,” Richie Pizano, executive director of Program Board,  said. “The Program Board office is flooded [with things], so we’ve been very selective with what we pack up and what we store in different storage areas.”Karl Nickenig, next year’s general manager of KSCR radio, said KSCR is in the process of deciding what should be moved to the new office in the campus center.“I know the new space will have its own furniture, so our staff has to decide what we need and what we don’t in the coming weeks,” Nickenig said.Even once these offices and groups are comfortably settled in the campus center, their current offices will not be entirely abandoned.According to Bailey, there are multiple administrative groups that review available space on campus and then determine which organizations will best utilize that space.“They look at short-term/long-term needs, student and academic needs, service and operational needs, etc.,” Bailey wrote. “At USC space is a very precious thing, that’s why we worked hard to develop/create space that can serve multiple functions in the campus center.”So far, administrators have decided that the current USG office, located in the Student Union, will become the new Orientation Programs office. The future of the current Admission Center, located in Trojan Hall, has not yet been decided.The Epstein Family Alumni Center in the campus center will house about 24 members of the Alumni Association, but the university’s oldest building, the Widney Alumni House will not be deserted.“The Alumni House will remain a part of the alumni footprint of the university,” said Patrick Auerbach, executive director of alumni relations. “It will become a welcome center for alumni, whereas the office in the campus center will become a headquarters and place where our volunteer leadership will come to campus.”Other organizations moving into the campus center include Academic Recognition Programs, the Volunteer Center, the Office of Campus Activities, the Graduate and Professional Student Senate, Leadership Programs, the SCheduling Office and Campus Center Administration.last_img read more

Men’s, women’s hockey bring 4 titles to Madison

Posted on by

first_imgThe men\’s hockey team celebrates their 2006 NCAA National Championship.[/media-credit]Change and success were the themes for Wisconsin’s hockey programs this decade. Both the men’s and women’s teams introduced new head coaches for the 2002-03 seasons, and the teams won a combined four national titles.The 2000s saw the Wisconsin hockey family gain a new member, as the women’s program began with the 1999-2000 season and quickly became the school’s most successful team.The legacy Badger Bob Johnson started in the ’60s with the men’s team was continued after his son Mark took over behind the women’s bench. The UW women won national titles in 2006, 2007 and 2009, and lost in the championship game in 2008. Wisconsin’s four consecutive appearances in the national title game are an NCAA record.Since 2000, the women have lost just 57 games, and Johnson is the winningest active Division I coach by winning percentage (.815). Johnson’s teams are 210-39-22-3, with three WCHA regular season and playoff titles each.Johnson saw arguably two of the greatest women’s hockey players ever go through Wisconsin in Sara Bauer and Jessie Vetter. Bauer scored the 10th-most career points in D-I history, netting 72 (24-48-72) during the 2006-07 season. Vetter owns almost every NCAA goaltending mark, ranking first in save percentage (.941), wins (91) and shutouts (39). She finished her collegiate career second to only fellow Badger Christine Dufour in goals against average (1.19 to 1.09).Wisconsin’s all-time points leader, Mike Eaves, took over the men’s team from Jeff Seuer and wasted little time in replicating his predecessor’s success. Eaves is 154-116-36 as the team’s head coach with one national title and four NCAA appearances.The men’s program saw its share of quality players in the 2000s as well. Goaltender Bernd Bruckler was named a First-Team All-American in 2004 — UW’s first goaltender to make the first team since 1980. In Dany Heatley and Kyle Turris, the Badgers had their highest-drafted players ever, Heatley going second overall and Turris third. Defenseman Jamie McBain was the 2009 WCHA Player of the Year, and forward Joe Pavelski followed up a successful UW career by playing for the San Jose Sharks.A banner year for both programs, Wisconsin became the first school to win national titles in both men’s and women’s hockey in 2006. The women went 36-4-1, defeating rival Minnesota 3-0 in the title game. The men posted their seventh 30-win season, beating Boston College at the Bradley Center 2-1 en route to a 30-10-3 record.With the dominance of the women’s team and continued success of the men, Wisconsin established itself as one of — if not — the premiere hockey school of the 2000s. Who can argue with four combined NCAA championships in five appearances?last_img read more
