I believe this work undertaken by the UKHO is of immeasurable importance in helping Guyana as it develops its ‘blue’ economy. Guyana has a huge potential for economic development based on greater, and better informed, use of their marine resources. By providing this up-to-date and accurate survey data for two of the country’s major rivers, Guyana will be able to benefit from increased trade and reduce the loss of lives at sea. This programme is but the latest example of cooperation between Guyana and the UK during a relationship which has spanned the decades since independence. The next step, which we are just embarking on with the support of the Government of Guyana, through the CME Programme is the development of a Maritime Economy Plan which will help Guyana make even more effective and sustainable use of its marine and coastal resources. As a country with extensive mineral resources and agricultural exports, Guyana provides the perfect example of how marine geospatial data can empower developing nations through greater knowledge and understanding of their marine environments. The extremely shallow waters around Guyana’s coastline and rivers have previously proven a real barrier to maritime trade and prevented the nation from fully benefiting from its considerable natural economic and environmental resources. However, by cultivating a greater understanding of its waters, the data will allow Guyana to overcome the challenges it has previously faced, enabling mariners to navigate confidently and safely with larger cargoes. But the benefits don’t end just at navigation. These data sets could be used to scope out potential coastal developments, support the protection of the marine environment and help the creation of disaster models that help Guyana prepare for severe weather events or mitigate the potential risks of oil and pollution spills in the area. The work carried out by UKHO and its partner organisations is expected to leave a lasting legacy in Guyana of growing self-sufficiency in marine research needs, laying the groundwork for future development and long-term prosperity. Following the data handover, UKHO will continue to offer technical support and training, and will provide a complete suite of hydrographic surveying equipment which will enable Guyana to undertake systematic surveys of its own waters and eventually produce its own charts.Commenting on the work carried out by the UKHO, Mr Greg Quinn, British High Commissioner to Guyana, said: The UK Hydrographic Office (UKHO) has officially handed over marine geospatial data to the Guyanese Government after a campaign of hydrographic surveying.Delegates from the UKHO presented the data to government officials at a special event to celebrate the completion of the survey. Two workshops were held to brief ministers and provide technical support for applications of the data, which will help Guyana support the development of its marine economy.The data, which was collected over a period of four months between 2016 and 2017, will initially be used to update nautical charts of the Demerara River. This will enable ships to confidently reduce under-keel clearance and maximise cargo-carrying capacity, paving the way for increased import and export activity.Simultaneously, the UKHO will present Guyana with other key data sets – such as information about the composition of the seabed – which can be used to support disaster management and support maritime infrastructure, such as the development of ports. Actions like these can help Guyana to protect its marine environment and sustainably harness economic resources to support the country’s marine economy.The surveying work and subsequent data handover forms the latest effort undertaken under the Commonwealth Marine Economies (CME) Programme, delivered on behalf of the UK government by the UKHO, the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (Cefas) and the National Oceanography Centre (NOC).Rear Admiral Tim Lowe CBE, National Hydrographer and Deputy Chief Executive of the UKHO, said:
It will be looking to bolster the ‘court-like’ status of the Parole Board. The Parole Board welcomes the findings from the Review of the Parole Board rules and Reconsideration Mechanism, which were announced today by the Secretary of State for Justice.Caroline Corby, Chair of the Parole Board said:“The outcome of the recent consultation and rules review builds on the work already undertaken to improve transparency and efficiency of the parole system.“I am particularly pleased to see that the new reconsideration mechanism proposed is workable and will be properly resourced. We will be working with the Ministry of Justice to create and deliver a service that is transparent, timely and straight forward for victims and prisoners to use on the rare occasion that cases need to be looked at again.“We are always striving to improve how we work and the upcoming Tailored Review provides us an opportunity to evaluate the way we are currently set up, ensuring that we have the most fair and independent parole system possible.”On background:What is the reconsideration mechanism?The reconsideration mechanism will allow any party to the hearing to be able to ask for a case to be reconsidered if they believe a parole decision was unlawful, for example if: A victim or a member of the public can ask the Secretary of State to make an application on their behalf, if they believe the decision was unlawful, but it is up to the Secretary of State to refer cases to the Parole BoardThe reconsideration mechanism only applies to indeterminate and Extended Sentences.Judicial Review is still available, but the aim is to provide a quick and free service to allow for problems to be resolved without the need to go to Court.This mechanism isn’t available yet, but more information will be provided in due course.For more information – please go to the MOJ website.What is the Tailored Review? It is a Cabinet Office requirement to review public bodies during each Parliament. The Parole Board was last reviewed in 2014/15 and would need to be reviewed again before the end of 2019/20. It will consider internal and external accountability, including governance arrangements. Proper procedures weren’t followed; The law has been wrongly applied; Important information wasn’t available to the panel at the time; The decision was unreasonable giving the information available to the Parole Board This is an opportunity for the Ministry of Justice to look at whether the Parole Board should continue to sit as an non-departmental public body. For more information, please see the MOJ announcement on GOV.UK. The Parole Board will be publishing its response to the review in due course.

Aboard a new boat, the Norwegian Jade, fans and musicians alike embarked on a loop around the Carribean after leaving port from Miami, on January 17th, 2018. Two music-packed days at sea bookended the five-night voyage in between stops at Roatan, Honduras, and the Grand Cayman Islands before Jam Cruise returned to Miami on the morning of January 22nd.The stacked lineup featured a huge range of artists, including Medeski Scofield Martin & Wood, Galactic, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, Maceo Parker, Lotus, Electron, Lettuce, Steel Pulse, Keller Williams, Voodoo Dead (Steve Kimock, Anders Osborne, Jeff Chimenti, George Porter Jr., John Kimock), The New Mastersounds, Dumpstaphunk, Antibalas, Turkuaz, The Marcus King Band, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Con Brio, The Main Squeeze, Naughty Professor feat. Chali 2na, Andy Frasco & The U.N., Aqueous, and more.Jam Cruise 16 also hosted a number of all-time super jams, ranging from Robert Randolph’s super jam on the final night on the main stage, to a fan-favorite performance by Everyone Orchestra in the Stardust Theater, to late-night (into the early morning) sets in the Jam Room hosted by George Porter Jr., Jennifer Hartswick, Roosevelt Collier, Dan Lebowitz, and Michelangelo Carruba. Outside of these, the event also saw nightly jazz jams curated by the likes of Shira Elias, Eddie Roberts, Skerik, DJ Logic, and Mike Dillon, though these performances frequently took on a life of their own and ranged outside the constraints of typical “jazz” performances.Of course, while the music stands out, as Jam Cruise frequently hosts some of the greatest musical moments of the year, the main draw and beauty of the event is the close community it draws together. Jam Cruise offers fans the chance to connect with their favorite musicians on a more personal level, through events like a poker tournament (hosted by Ivan Neville), ping pong tournament (hosted by Pigeons Playing Ping Pong), curry “jam” (hosted by chef Archna Malhotra and featuring a number of artists onboard), and more. However, outside of these curated events, considering that everyone onboard calls the boat home for the better part of a week, there is a unique sense of camaraderie that is exceptional for any musical event—new friends are made, new bands discovered, and magical moments created.You can relive some of these special moments below, with an extensive photo gallery from Jam Cruise provided by Dave Vann. Enjoy, and see you next year! Photo: Dave Vann Jam Cruise 16 | Photos: Dave Vann Photo: Dave Vann
Created in 2001, Mariachi Véritas de Harvard is a student-run group that focuses exclusively on the mariachi musical tradition. While many members have strong backgrounds in jazz and classical music, most have had little or no prior exposure to this Mexican musical form. They rely largely on learning techniques from each generation of members, and on YouTube videos of the mariachi style.
In May 2014, as Cynthia A. Torres ’80, M.B.A. ’84, looked ahead to her upcoming term as Harvard Alumni Association (HAA) president, she remarked on the “magic of Harvard” that is at the center of its community of alumni, students, faculty, and staff.Now, reviewing her year at the helm of the HAA, Torres reflects on how strongly she feels that magic — through visits with alumni around the world as part of the Your Harvard event series, collaborations with Harvard Club and Shared Interest Group (SIG) leaders, and work with volunteers who come back to campus for meetings.“Every time I walk into a room with alumni, my heart is full,” says Torres. “This year, I’ve had the honor of traveling for the HAA around the globe — to Brussels, Mexico City, Beijing, and beyond — and every time I go out to meet with alumni, I’m struck by their enthusiasm and their connectedness with the University.”Incoming HAA President Paul L. Choi ’86, J.D. ’89, a longtime Harvard volunteer, an active member of Harvard Law School alumni organizations, and former president of the Harvard Club of Chicago, shares Torres’ sense of awe about the strength of the alumni community and the role it plays in Harvard’s future.As president, he will focus on highlighting the inherently University-wide nature of the HAA, a vision that aligns with President Drew Faust’s overarching goal for a more unified Harvard as part of The Harvard Campaign. “When you graduate from a Harvard School you are an alum of that School, but, more importantly, you are also an alum of the University,” he says. “You may leave the campus with a diploma in hand, but you don’t leave the broader alumni community.”Looking to his term as HAA president, Choi praised Torres as a source of inspiration: “It would be hard to find an alum more dedicated and passionate than Cynthia — I aspire to bring that same commitment to my work, and I look forward to what the next year will hold.”Torres shares Choi’s excitement for the year ahead. “We alumni carry the Harvard name throughout the world in the work that we do. We are Harvard,” she says. “And I am confident that Paul’s leadership will strengthen our community even more.”
The road to success for female entrepreneurs remains a steep climb, but women who combine passion for their company mission with smart business strategy have a shot at making it to the top in the competitive marketplace.That was the theme of “She Got Game,” a panel discussion at the Harvard Business School (HBS) on Wednesday about the challenges that women face in starting and growing large-scale businesses, and how they are learning to overcome them.The forum, part of the Harvard Business School Association of Boston’s new venture competition event series, featured four women who have navigated their way through the still-male-dominated world of entrepreneurial startups. In addition to recounting their stories, they offered tips and encouragement to other women with business dreams.“Just get used to the fear,” said Susan Hunt Stevens, co-founder and CEO of WeSpire, about the anxiety that comes with trying to start and build a company “There is constant fear. But it’s so much fun, the fear kind of motivates you.”Stevens, whose firm helps businesses improve employee engagement, said the failure of a previous firm she started taught her “to make sure you are in love with the problem” the business seeks to address ― “Not the product, not the service, but the problem you are solving.”Lynda M. Applegate, the Sarofim-Rock Professor of Business Administration at HBS and the panel’s moderator, cited the results of a 2014 study by Babson College to underscore the difficulties women face in a critical area of entrepreneurship: raising capital.The study found that less than 3 percent of firms receiving venture capital funding had female CEOs, noted Applegate, chair of HBS’ Executive Education Portfolio for Business Owners & Entrepreneurs. With another of the panelists, Janet Kraus, Applegate is working on a paper about female entrepreneurs who have had success raising venture capital.One way for women to gain access to venture capital is by forging personal connections, said Kraus, the CEO of Peach, a startup that sells intimate apparel through a network of “stylists” who visit customers’ homes to ensure proper fittings.“People invest in people they know … You will not raise money by putting a pitch in someone’s hand coldly,” said Kraus.Also emphasizing the importance of networking was panelist Sheila Marcelo, who is CEO of Care.com, an online site for finding and managing family care.“You need to try and make sure you surround yourself at every stage of the game with champions,” she said, citing the importance of having mentors. Marcelo, M.B.A. ’98, J.D. ’99, is currently advising several female-led companies.Women also “have to be looking at billion-dollar opportunities,” advised Kraus, who has taught entrepreneurship at HBS. “If you want to go into venture capital or any kind of external money, you have to be setting your sights on something very large.”Stevens said that achieving some early success can help a fledgling business.“Data can start to really tell an amazing story,” she said. “If you are sitting on a great business that is starting to do that, and you are building those networks and connections, people will start to take notice.”Another panelist, Marie Schwartz, lamented what she said is a “huge bias towards youth” on the part of venture capitalists.“It seems like people are much more willing to give someone who is 25 a check than someone who has actually worked and has experience,” said Schwartz, M.B.A. ’85, who is founder and CEO of TeenLife Media, which provides extensive listings of out-of-school programs and activities for teenagers both on the Web and in publications.The panelists spoke of the passion they feel for their businesses, and the personal experiences that helped inspire those convictions.Marcelo was spurred to create her business by her difficulty finding child and elder care for her family while she was running a startup earlier in her career.“It’s an economic imperative,” she said of providing quality care for children and the elderly. “It’s often assumed to be a women’s issue, and it’s not.”Schwartz, a strong believer in the value of experiential learning, founded her company as an outgrowth of efforts to find summer activities for her teenage sons after they moved to Boston.“I want TeenLife to be a household name and place that people can come to to help them raise successful teens,” she said.

206SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Scott Butterfield Spend as much time with credit union boards and management teams as I do and you’ll learn that far too many credit union leaders spend too much time focused on the “thin” operational things and not enough time and thought on the “thick” strategic things.The thick important things are the mission, vision, and values that define us. The thick is the bold strategies that inspire us to move forward and motivate meaningful engagement. It’s a fuller understanding of how the world is changing around us, and a constant desire to evolve, adapt, change, grow, and affect others in a meaningful way.The thin, less-important things are operational and tactical. The business we’re in requires a high degree of compliance and exactness, whether it’s timely reporting to examiners, accurate transactions for members, or monitoring internal controls. These things are all very important. However, if we’re not careful, these operational details can easily become all that we regularly focus on, and we become trapped in the thick of thin things.SymptomsIt’s usually easy to spot credit unions trapped in the thin of things. Growth and revenue are weaker at these credit unions. Culturally, they reward good operational results, but don’t reward new ideas or risk-taking at the same level. Ask these leaders where they are headed and they give you a capital, asset, or revenue ratio. It’s sad when the “people helping people” movement is defined first by numbers and ratios. They are thin on strategic plans and thick with every possible operational procedure you can imagine. They are compliant – meaning the only rules they follow are the ones spelled out in a rule or regulation or based on whatever the broader credit union herd is grazing on at the moment (yes, I just compared some credit unions to a herd of sheep). It’s not uncommon to find credit unions that celebrate immaculate exams, audits, and ridiculously low delinquency numbers – all the while, they have failed to keep up with technology, and growth and revenue is weak because they have failed to invest for tomorrow. Review the board minutes or management team minutes of these organizations and you’ll see mention after mention of thin operational issues and very little strategic content. Credit unions must excel both operationally and strategically to survive.RemediesCredit union leadership (board and management) determine the level of strategic thought and action that will occur. Leaders must have the discipline to invest time. For some, it’s easy to drift from strategic to operational – especially if operational is their default comfort zone. Your team will follow your lead and respond to what you recognize and reward.Once you have your priorities straight, make sure you have the right people in place to handle all (or most) of the operational issues. Having the right people in place and delegating the right things will allow you to spend less time on operational issues and more time on strategic issues. I realize this is challenging for smaller credit unions. However, I believe that even though smaller credit union leaders are forced to spend more time on operational things, it’s possible to carve out extra time for strategic thought and action. I work with a lot of best-practice smaller credit unions with very busy leaders who still make strategic action a priority – even though they are still reviewing loans and dealing with examiners. Ask these credit union leaders where they’re headed and you’re sure to get a meaningful answer, and their credit union’s performance and culture reflect their strategic thinking.Management and boards can do a better job structuring board meeting agendas. Everything operational that can be moved to a consent agenda should be. Next, move strategic business to the top of the agenda to be sure you don’t run out of time. I’d rather run out of time on the operational items at the end of the meeting. Each short-term and long-term strategy should have goals and milestones that management regularly reports on. Results on these strategies should be the focus of the board conversation – not budget line items that could easily be addressed offline, or waste-of-time conversations explaining why the number of delinquent loans increased from 25 to 27 during the month.Invest the time in developing the right strategies for your credit union. Spend less time focused on what the credit union down the street is doing and more time looking at the issues that are influencing your members, and the future members you want to attract. You want to anticipate and plan for what their needs will be five years from now, and make sure you are prepared to meet them. Spend as much time considering external opportunities as you do external threats, less time complaining over regulatory uncertainty and more time addressing opportunities to differentiate and evolve.Why it mattersStrategic Planning for Dummies points out that “a strategic plan is a critical management tool that guides an organization to do a better job because a plan focuses the energy, resources, and time of everyone in the organization in the same direction.” Understanding that is easy; constantly doing it is the hard part. You and your team’s ability to think and act strategically will determine the long-term viability and success of your organization. If you’re not sure where your organization is headed or you feel stuck in the thick of thin things, act now. Even if you have to start small, begin now to make strategic thinking and action a priority.

In a statement, BayernInvest thanked Schlick for his services and noted that he had “greatly influenced the company’s image” and “successfully advanced the product range”.The supervisory board said it would finalise the hiring of a new CIO in early 2015.In his introductory note to the 2013 Telos study on German Spezialfonds, in which BayernInvest is a co-financer, Schlick predicted a shift towards “more individualised solutions away from a simple product approach”.He described the current investment environment as one in which “the average return level has fallen, safety has gone, economic cycles are shortened, markets are more dynamic and the regulatory pendulum is swinging heavily to one side”.He also argued that stock markets were following “fundamental economic assessments much less than they used to”, and were much more influenced by political decisions. Oliver Schlick has told the supervisory board of BayernInvest he will not stand for re-election as board member and CIO in February 2015 when his contract expires.Schlick has been on the board of the asset management subsidiary of German regional bank BayernLB since 2008.The BayernInvest KAG has grown its assets under management by more than 13% to almost €50bn year-on-year in 2013, gaining rank 11 in IPE’s list of top institutional managers in Germany.As per mid-2014, the assets under management have grown further to almost €53bn, with 80% of the total in Spezialfonds being managed for “insurers, Versorgungswerke, companies, foundations and church institutions”, according to BayernInvest.
Sharing is caring! LocalNews The cleansing of the Temple by: – March 10, 2012 Share Temple of Aphrodite in Athens. Photo credit:destination360.comThe cleansing of the Temple was among the more highly symbolic acts performed by Jesus before his death. Perhaps only his actions in the upper room at the Last Supper can be regarded as surpassing it in importance. Indeed those actions, and the new notion of sacrifice they inaugurated that night, were all prefaced and anticipated by the cleansing of the temple.Jesus’ action in the Temple had two important dimensions, one more essential than the other, but both interrelated. At one level, he was angry at the travesty of economic trafficking in the sacred precincts, especially since the burden of such trafficking often fell on the poor. Pilgrims to the temple came from the four corners of the empire, and they came with their own currency had to be exchanged for Roman currency at the desks of temple brokers; only there, and with a certain added commission for the temple authorities. Animals also had to be bought for sacrifice. These had to be without blemish, a condition certifiable again by the Temple authorities. Unblemished animals were thus provided on the spot by the latter to avoid the burden of bringing your own, and of course having them declared unfit. Again, a further commission was added to this transaction. According to New Testament historians there was also a matter of mob-like loan sharking and appropriation of property. Temple authorities, in other words, had the whole system sewn up in their favour, and everything was done in the name of God. This was the reason for Jesus’ anger. As he said, they had converted his father’s house into a robbers’ den.The second dimension of the event lies in the action itself. The temple was not just a sacred enclosure, but the very dwelling-place of God, It was where the Holy of Holies was tabernacled. Over time the temple became shorthand for indicating God’s presence in the midst of his people.That Jesus would take it upon himself to turn things there upside down, and do so on his own authority was for the Jews the height of arrogance. That he did so not only on his own authority but from the vantage point of his superiority to the Temple itself was blasphemy added to arrogance. This was of course the real charge behind the several trials Jesus had to undergo. The charge of blasphemy was (as far as the Jews were concerned) accurate; they venue was wrong. The last place the dispute could be settled was a Roman court. Hence the trumped up charge of sedition.A New Testament scholar recently published a book entitled Jesus the Temple, and that in a word was the more important and crucial reason behind the cleansing. The person who did it was superior to the temple. He and not the temple was now the localized presence of God.This changed the very nature of worship. The point of worship thenceforth was not a place, no matter how sacred, but a person, who could be worshipped anywhere in the Spirit. The temple had lost not just its symbolic identification but its status as a religious talisman. In an earlier time Jeremiah had warned Israelites that their faithless ways were not annulled by the chant, “This is the temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord (Jer. 7:4).” Pious chant was not a substitute for godliness in faith and life.Temple sacrifice was displaced, as I said earlier, by the sacrifice inaugurated at the last supper. The deepest religious associations of the temple had also moved to the person of Jesus. He was the definitive form of God’s presence among his people. And he was the new locus of worship.For us Catholics the word “Church” represents a reality of many levels: sacred space, a sacred enclosure, and the location where the altar has pride of place, where the Eucharist is celebrated and tabernacled. At the same time “church” is never entirely free of talismanic associations. To be “in church” if often felt to be a form of spiritual and moral standing quite unlike that of being outside. Indeed it is often regarded, without qualification, as a condition of superiority.A cousin of mine, however, often reminds me that “Church is outside,” that Church is “where the needs are.” And she is right. Outside is where we routinely meet and worship Jesus. Indeed, if we do not meet and worship him there, our claim to worship “in Church” runs right up against Jeremiah’s warning. Pious reliance and belief is no substitute for godliness of life and action. By: Henry Charles PhD Share Tweet Share 30 Views one comment
