Harvard University announced today that its endowment posted an 11.3 percent return and was valued at $32.7 billion for the fiscal year that ended June 30, 2013. The return was 223 basis points in excess of the 9.1 percent return on the benchmark Policy Portfolio.“As I mark my fifth anniversary as the chief executive of the Harvard Management Company, I am very proud of the internal and external managers we have in place and the results they have achieved,” said Jane Mendillo, president and CEO of HMC. “Thanks to this talented team, we have made a strong recovery since the global economic downturn of 2008-2009, and our outperformance this year alone contributed about $600 million of additional value to the portfolio over and above the markets.”Harvard’s endowment helps to fund operations critical to the University’s educational and research mission, including academic programs, science and medical research, as well as student financial aid programs that allow the University to admit qualified students regardless of their ability to pay. In fiscal 2013, distributions from the endowment contributed more than a third of the University’s operating budget.“The HMC team produced strong results at a time when the revenue streams that have traditionally supported institutions of higher education have been under increasing pressure,” said James Rothenberg, University treasurer. “HMC also beat its benchmark Policy Portfolio for the fourth consecutive year, and its performance relative to the market was once again positive in most asset categories.”The endowment has earned an average annual return of 12.0 percent over the past 20 years, outperforming the Policy Portfolio benchmark by substantial margins.The endowment is key to supporting Harvard’s generous financial aid programs.More than 60 percent of Harvard undergraduates are receiving need-based scholarship aid this year, totaling more than $182 million. The average undergraduate student on financial aid pays only $12,000; in addition, an average of one in five students pays no tuition, based on economic need. Throughout Harvard, scholarships and awards to students from University funds have almost tripled over the past decade. The College’s industry-leading financial aid policies are designed to make Harvard more affordable for families across the economic spectrum, a commitment that has remained a high priority despite times of economic uncertainty.The endowment is not a single fund, but comprises more than 12,000 individual funds, many of them restricted to specific uses such as support of a research center or the creation of a professorship in a specific subject. The funds are invested by HMC, which oversees the University’s endowment, pension, trust funds, and other investments at a significant savings relative to outside management.The endowment’s total value is affected by several factors each year, including investment returns, new contributions, and the annual payout for University programs.Contact: [email protected], 617.495.1585
Thomas Herder, general counsel of the energy division of Siemens AG, kicked off the Saint Mary’s Department of Global Studies series called “On Developing Global Mindset” with a lecture Thursday in Spes Unica. Herder said part of developing a global mindset is knowing companies cannot only rely on the United States, Germany and Japan. He said because many other countries are growing rapidly, there must be a shift away from a Eurocentric approach to business. “Siemens looks at the global market, breaks it down into regions and then focuses in on certain countries,” Herder said. “We then strategize from that mindset. We are a German company with a strong global footprint.” Herder said cultural sensitivity is essential for success in international business. “It is important to do your homework so you know up front what you are going to be dealing with and how you as a foreigner will be treated in that specific setting,” he said. “It is essential to understand and appreciate different cultures, but it is also important to be aware of your own perspective and what is driving you. That way you won’t let others take advantage of you in the business setting.” Herder said taking a few basic business classes helps prepare students for the global marketplace. He also emphasized the importance of having language and writing skills. “Liberal arts education teaches people how to think,” Herder said. “I can teach people how to negotiate contracts, but I cannot teach them how to think.” Herder urged students to take advantage of the opportunities presented to them. “The only constant is change,” he said. “Embrace it, get used to it and look for opportunities for value-added change. Those who resist [change] are going to be left behind.” Herder expressed the importance of compliance in a world where corruption is a problem. Compliance is important to Herder, he said, because Siemens had to pay $1.9 billion in fines to the European Commission and Justice Department in 2009 for corrupt business practices. Although Herder was not implicated in the allegations, he said he saw the scandal’s negative affects on the company. “If people in our company had done the right thing, we wouldn’t have had to pay $1.9 billion in fines and a lot of families would not have suffered,” he said. “From a global perspective, we see the darker side of corruption and the horrific effects it has on developing nations. I believe we are obliged to point out things that are wrong.” Herder reminded students of the importance of common sense when traveling to unfamiliar places. He said women should be especially careful. “Do not let this stop you from traveling or taking advantage of job opportunities,” he said. “Just be aware of your surroundings.” Workplace diversity is an important component of developing a global mindset, Herder said. “Companies are trying to get additional representation from minorities,” he said. “More representation adds to the richness of the company. Each individual comes with such different perspectives. This new major [of Global Studies] allows you to explore these different perspectives and develop a global mindset.”
The Vermont Department of Labor announced today the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for October 2010 was 5.7 percent which is a decrease of one tenth of a percent from the previous month’s reported level of 5.8 percent. Vermont has the fifth lowest rate in the nation. New Hampshire is fourth at 5.4 percent. Vermont also added 700 jobs in one month and 1,900 jobs since October 2009.Compared to a year ago, the October unemployment rate is lower by a full percentage point. Since the start of the calendar year, the Vermont seasonally adjusted unemployment rate has followed a downward trend. In January it was 6.7 percent, followed by February and March at 6.6 percent. Then the next three months each saw declines of two tenths of percent to put the state rate at 6.0 percent in June, where it stayed for three consecutive months until the September announcement of 5.8 percent.‘While based on preliminary numbers, we are seeing positive year over year job growth for the first time since May of 2008,’ said Valerie Rickert, Acting Commissioner of the Vermont Department of Labor. ‘In addition, the state has seen two consecutive months of increased employment and decreased unemployment. The current trend is positive as is evidenced by the full percent decline in unemployment since the beginning of the year,’ Rickert continued.Analysis of Job Changes by IndustryThe preliminary ‘not seasonally adjusted’ jobs numbers for October show an increase of 3,550 jobs when compared to the revised September numbers. This reported over the month change does not include the 450 job increase between the preliminary and the revised September estimates due to the revision process and the inclusion of more sample data. As detailed in the preliminary October data, Total Private reports an increase of 1,100 jobs and Government reports an increase of 2,450 jobs. The bulk of the increase in Government jobs was from State and Local Government Education (+900 and +1,450, respectively). In the private sector, Education and Health Services led all industries with an increase of by 900 jobs. Retail Trade and Financial Activities each showed positive gains of 550 jobs. Lastly, Manufacturing continued its recent strong performance with an increase of 250 jobs.The annual rate of unadjusted job growth was positive for the first time since May of 2008 (+0.1%). This is greater than the revised September estimate by three tenths of a percent. The seasonally adjusted data for October reports an increase of 1,800 jobs from the revised September data. As with the ‘not seasonally adjusted’ data, this over the month change is from the revised September numbers which experienced a positive revision from the preliminary September estimates (+400 jobs). A review of the seasonally adjusted numbers shows Vermont’s Private Industries with a positive job gain of 1,500 jobs. The two industries which most contributed to the net job gains in Total Private Industries were Education and Health Services (+1,000) and Financial Activities (+600). Total Government also increased by 300 jobs. State of Vermont OverviewVermont’s seasonally adjusted unemployment was 5.7 percent in October.

Topics : Canada has entered a second wave of the coronavirus pandemic, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Wednesday, warning that the country was on the brink of a surge if people did not follow public health guidelines.In a rare national address, Trudeau said the country “is at a crossroads” as a second wave emerges in four large provinces, adding that the government would do whatever it took to help the country recover from the pandemic.”We’re on the brink of a fall that could be much worse than the spring,” he said. Total infections reached 147,753, while 9,243 people have died, according to latest government data.”This is not the time for austerity,” the government said in the speech. “Canada entered this crisis in the best fiscal position of its peers.”The range of promises and mentions of significant investments could upset markets showing signs of nervousness about soaring budget deficits and debt. Canada lost one of its coveted triple-A ratings in June when Fitch downgraded it for the first time, citing the spending.The Canadian dollar extended its decline after the speech, touching 1.3384 to the US dollar, or 74.72 US cents.’High-risk bet’In his address, Trudeau said low interest rates meant Ottawa could afford the promised spending.”Doing less would mean a slower recovery and bigger deficits in the long run,” he said, adding that long-term spending would be fiscally sustainable.Spending measures already announced mean Canada’s budget deficit this fiscal year is forecast to hit C$343.2 billion ($256.5 billion), the largest since World War Two.Ian Lee, associate professor of management at Ottawa’s Carleton University, said the speech represented a “very high-risk bet” by Trudeau.”He’s gambling this massive increase in expenditures is going to generate very substantial growth,” he said by phone.The throne speech is a parliamentary measure of confidence and given that the Liberals only have a minority in the House of Commons, they will need the support of opposition legislators to avoid being toppled and plunging the country into an election.The left-leaning New Democrats – who had indicated they might vote in favor – said the proposals did not offer enough support to Canadians.Party leader Jagmeet Singh said he did not want to force an election, adding his team would take “a lot of time” to decide what to do. A formal vote is likely next month.The Conservatives, the largest opposition group, confirmed expectations they would not back the government.The Trudeau government said it was sticking to the goal of fighting climate change and promised money to retrofit buildings and make zero-emissions vehicles more widely available.The Liberals also vowed to make significant investments in childcare and said they would extend an existing wage subsidy measure until next summer. The speech made no specific spending commitments or fiscal projections, some of which will be disclosed in a fiscal update later this year. Canada’s COVID-19 cases have spiked in recent days, with an average of 1,123 new cases reported daily over the past week, compared with a daily average of 380 cases in mid-August.”We have the power to get this second wave under control. I know we can do it, because we’ve already done it once before,” Trudeau added.Canadians are now more worried about COVID-19 than they have been since April, an Abacus Data poll showed.Earlier, the government made the commitments in the so-called Speech from the Throne, which lays out its agenda for the next parliamentary session, and promised to recover more than a million jobs lost during the crisis.

Awareness sign during the Ebola outbreak in Guinea and Sierra Leone Awareness sign during the Ebola outbreak in Guinea and Sierra LeoneSouth African health minister Aaron Motsoaledi says establishing Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Africa will ensure the continent is not caught by surprise with an outbreak such as Ebola.Announcing a health cooperation agreement between Africa and China on Tuesday, the two health ministers, Motsoaledi and Lin Bin, said they realised the importance of establishing a resilient health system in Africa, which would include the creation of the CDC.Chinese government has committed to build 100 health facilities in across Africa and to help establish disease control centres.“We don’t want to wait for another disaster. So a CDC is going to be a form of surveillance, which will help us. It’s going to be Africa’s intelligence centre. The CDC will work as an intelligence centre for diseases, to tell us that if we don’t watch out, this is likely to happen. With the CDC, we as African countries will know what is about to happen. Unlike what happened with Ebola. We were caught napping there.” Motsoaledi saidApart from a main CDC in the continent, each African region will have a centre in each countries which have laboratories that will be regarded as World Health Organisation [WHO] collaborating centres.

RelatedPosts Joe Aribo out of Super Eagles friendlies Celtic given tricky tie in UEFA Champions League qualifiers, Red Star drawn away Celtic appoint Gavin Strachan coach Free agent Efe Ambrose has opened the door for a sensational return to Scottish football. The former Celtic and Hibs defender is on the lookout for a new club having left Derby in the summer. The 30-year-old has already turned down a number of lucrative offers because it wasn’t right for him and his family. But he revealed a return to Scotland is something that would have an appeal. Ambrose said: “I would never say never about the possibility of coming back to Scottish football. “It is a great place to play football and I feel the Scottish league is growing and getting better. “The standing and reputation of the league is growing and there is a real profile to it with the likes of Neil Lennon and Steven Gerrard now at Celtic and Rangers. “I have had some great times in Scotland. My times there, with Celtic and Hibs, were amongst the best of my career and if there was interest there then it is something I would definitely consider.” Ambrose has also insisted his next move is not just about money. He said: “I have had some offers. I had a big-money offer from Turkey that would have seen me earn more than I did at Celtic but it just didn’t feel right. “I want a club to make sure the move is right for my family and for me at this stage in my career.” The centre-half is currently back in Nigeria but has been keeping himself fit by turning out for his local side, Narayi Celtic Kaduna, who were formed after his own spell at Parkhead. Ambrose said: “I have been training every day with my local team back in Nigeria and playing in friendly games. “So when I get my next move sorted, I will be ready to hit the ground running and to be able to get up to speed very quickly. That was the problem when I went to Derby last season.”Tags: CelticDerbyEfe AmbroseHibs
Press Association The need for reinforcements at Old Trafford was laid bare in the most humiliating fashion on Tuesday night as United were dumped out of the Capital One Cup with a 4-0 defeat to MK Dons. United’s lack of depth was easy for all to see as fringe players like Anderson, Danny Welbeck, Javier Hernandez and Shinji Kagawa all failed to impress manager Louis van Gaal. The new United boss made his fourth signing of the summer on Tuesday in the shape of Angel di Maria, who cost a British transfer record fee of £59.7million, and more new arrivals are expected before Monday’s deadline. Blind, a versatile Dutchman who can play left-back or in central midfield, is on Van Gaal’s transfer wish list, but Ajax want to hold on to the player for another year so they will not let him go cheaply in this window. “We believe that we currently have a strong team and want Daley to stay for another year,” Ajax director of football Marc Overmars told Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf. “Only if the absolute top price is paid is a transfer negotiable. “Daley’s management know how we feel at the moment. “Next year we will have a much more lenient policy, we are willing to talk with Daley and we will settle for a reasonable price.” Blind’s agent Rob Jansen claimed on Tuesday United were yet to launch a bid to sign the 24-year-old son of former Holland international Danny Blind. And Overmars said there had still been no enquiry from United for the player on Wednesday. Ajax have told Manchester United they will not be able to sign Daley Blind on the cheap. “There’s some rumblings around Daley, some clubs enquired, but there is no concrete offer,” the former Arsenal winger said. “And with Manchester United, there is no contact at all.” Van Gaal, who is also interested in Arturo Vidal, hopes to include Di Maria in his squad for Saturday’s trip to Burnley. The Argentina international was not present at United’s galling defeat at stadium:mk, but he will no doubt be aware of the club’s poor plight. Van Gaal’s team have taken one point from their opening two Premier League fixtures and the 63-year-old conceded last week it would take a “miracle” for United to lift the trophy in May. Di Maria wants to win silverware with United, but his immediate ambition is to help the club finish in the top four. “I want to achieve great things with Manchester United and I would like to win many trophies with them,” the former Real Madrid man told MUTV. “One of the objectives and one of the goals would be to actually get back into the Champions League.” Di Maria’s form at the World Cup was one of the main reasons why United had to pay so much for the former Benfica man. The winger was named on the shortlist for player of the tournament, even though he missed the final defeat to Germany and the last-four encounter against Holland, who were then managed by Van Gaal. The prospect of playing under Van Gaal excites Di Maria, who has signed a five-year contract with United. “I am looking forward to working with Louis van Gaal, he is a very good manager and he did very well with Holland during the World Cup,” he said. Di Maria hopes the presence of compatriot Marcos Rojo and fellow Spanish speakers like Juan Mata, David de Gea and Ander Herrera will help him settle in at United, where the players have been instructed to speak English to each other. “I don’t speak English at the moment, so to have people who speak Spanish is a big help for me,” Di Maria added. “I hope I will be able to learn English very quickly and get used to the city very quickly.”

COLOMBO, Sri Lanka, (CMC) – Manager of the West Indies team Rawl Lewis says the Caribbean men will not be underestimating Sri Lanka in their three-match One-Day International (ODI) series starting here Saturday, but will be focused on winning the series and regaining the support of fans across the region.Five years after a 3-0 whitewash in their last tour there, a “fit” West Indies team will be trying to secure their first ever ODI series win in Sri Lanka.West Indies lost their opening warm-up match in Colombo on Tuesday, going down by two wickets to a Sri Lanka Cricket XI. And they will take on a Sri Lanka Board President’s XI Thursday in their last tour match before facing a strong Sri Lanka side in the opening ODI.Speaking on the Mason & Guest radio show, Lewis said he is satisfied with the preparation ahead of this weekend’s game and believes the 15-man squad is ready for the task ahead.“All personnel have been working hard to prepare the team. We have no concern at this time. I really think that everything is in place. We have a few days to continue our preparation leading up to the first match. Everyone seems to be in high spirits, everyone is fit and ready,” the former West Indies leg-spinner said.He added that it was important for the Keiron Pollard-led team to end the series on a winning note, particularly to get people rallying around the West Indies again.“We have been playing very good cricket lately. We went to India and we didn’t win every match…but we competed well with India which is a very powerful team. We are never going to underestimate Sri Lanka. We played Ireland in the Caribbean; we won.We want to continue to win cricket. We need to develop this habit of winning matches and winning series. We would want to win every match that we play, and we understand that winning would bring back the fans to cricket, would encourage the people of the Caribbean to play more cricket.“So we need to continue to win as the senior team and just make sure that we get people back supporting West Indies cricket. As long as we keep winning, they keep supporting,” he said.The Grenadian, who first managed the team during their successful ICC T20 World Cup run in India in 2016 before returning to the position in February 2018, stressed that the management of the Caribbean side would keep fighting to get West Indies cricket back to where it needs to be.“We will never give up hope on West Indies cricket. We are here, we are working every day, we do whatever we need to do to ensure the players are well prepared to represent West Indies at the highest level. So we want to win every match, no doubt about it,” he assured.

The Astros have to be absolutely exhausted after their two games on Thursday and Friday, but they are two wins richer so they can’t be complaining too much.One day after defeating the Mariners in 14 innings in Seattle, the Astros (44-21) flew back to Houston and defeated the Orioles in 11, but they got a little help in the process. Ruptured testicle sends Mariners’ Mitch Haniger to the IL Dud of the NightJose Urena gave up six earned runs on 11 hits in three innings of a 7-1 Marlins loss to the Braves. He also gave up a home run to Ronald Acuna which really has to sting.

Jack Flaherty (4-3, 3.76 ERA) has gotten through a bit of a sophomore slump to open the season and has given up three earned runs or less in each of his last seven starts. Jon Lester (4-4, 3.32) bounced back from three bad starts to toss seven innings of one-run ball his last time out. In the 11th inning with the game tied at 3, Robinson Chirinos doubled to left with Yuli Gurriel on base.The not-so-fleet-of-foot infielder then trucked around the bases and was waved around to go score, probably incorrectly. Related News The throw to the plate was in plenty of time to grab him too, but there is a reason the Orioles are 19-44 this season, not a ton is going right for them.And on this play, it simply came down to catching the baseball, which as a catcher, Chance Sisco has some experience in.The problem is he didn’t catch the ball and Gurriel was able to snake his way to home plate to score the winning run.#Safe!!! #YuliGurriel battles for home plate on a huge hit by #RobinsonChirinos. #Astros best #Orioles 4-3 in the 11th!! #KHOU11 pic.twitter.com/5ah0GknYHA— Shern-Min Chow 🙋🏻 (@ShernMinKHOU) June 8, 2019The play neatly summed up the season for both teams.
