IIROC to improve oversight of electronic trading

Related news The Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) is proposing rule amendments and guidance that aim to ensure adequate oversight of trading through order execution services (OES). IIROC Tuesday published proposed amendments that would require dealers that offer order execution services to identify clients with trading activity that exceeds established thresholds (100 trades per day, or 500 orders per day, on average in a month), and to provide their identities to IIROC. Dealers would also be required to have policies and procedures to deal with the risks associated with OES accounts that have limited direct order handling by staff. Keywords Electronic tradingCompanies Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada “The proposed amendments are designed to ensure that all electronic trading, regardless of channel, has the same level of supervision and oversight,” it says. Additionally, it’s proposing new guidance that sets out IIROC’s expectations for: the inclusion of these client identifiers on each order entered for clients whose OES account activity exceeds the thresholds set out in the proposed rules; reporting to the regulator; and, supervisory requirements relating to manipulative and deceptive trading, and to address the risks associated with the lack of intermediation in OES trading. The proposed amendments replace prior proposals that would have prohibited institutional clients from using OES dealers, among other things. Following the comments received, the earlier proposals were not adopted; however, rules regarding third-party electronic access to markets were implemented earlier this year. Comments on these latest proposals are due by January 14, 2014. IIROC says that if the amendments are approved they would be expected to be implemented within 180 days.

Teachers at Great Lakes College Forster Campus walk out over school staffing crisis

first_imgTeachers at Great Lakes College Forster Campus walk out over school staffing crisis TFEDNSW Teachers Federation members at Great Lakes College Forster Campus (GLCFC) have walked off the job over the NSW Government’s failure to properly staff their school and other public schools in rural and remote parts of the state.NSW Teachers Federation Deputy President Henry Rajendra said staff at Great Lakes College Forster Campus were concerned their school had been impacted by the shortage of casual teachers which had led to the disruption of classes.“Teachers are fed up with having to cover classes where no casual teachers are available,” Mr Rajendra said.“This is impacting on teaching and learning and is yet another example of the current staffing crisis in our schools.”Mr Rajendra said in Term 2 alone, GLCFC has been forced to collapse classes on 62 occasions. Another 63 classes have been cancelled and placed on minimal supervision.“There are too many classes being disrupted because the NSW Government has failed to meet its obligation to provide an appropriately qualified teacher for every class,” he said.“Teachers at the school are also calling on the NSW Government to appoint additional permanent staff to the school to facilitate inbuilt relief and ensure no class is cancelled.”“There are unfilled positions at schools across the state which must be filled if we are to continue to provide our students with the best possible education.”“To do otherwise would be unfair to students, especially in remote and regional areas and impact on staff morale and well-being.”“The Gallop inquiry into the work of teachers found earlier this year that uncompetitive salaries for teachers and unsustainable workloads are leading to teacher shortages.”“The workloads of teachers have increased every year but their salaries have fallen every year compared to other professions.”“You can’t fix the shortages without fixing the wages and workload problem.”“If we don’t pay teachers what they are worth, we won’t get the teachers we need.” /Public Release.

When your first boyfriend gets killed by a drunk driver, time warps, and then flattens out.Attitudes towards drinking and driving have changed a great deal. Canada has in place zero tolerance for young and new drivers; we’ve seen the “acceptable” blood alcohol content (BAC) drop to 0.05 from 0.08, though in Saskatchewan, where alcohol-related driving offences persist, they’ve dropped it to 0.04. Ontario has the RIDE program; Alberta and Manitoba have the Checkstop Program; British Columbia has the CounterAttack program; every populated part of Canada has a version of it. It’s that time of year when you can expect to encounter a phalanx of police cars as you go through the holiday season.

Who wants to get into an altercation with a mean drunk?The Internet is awash in do-it-yourself kits for those trying to plan their drinking and driving. Buy your own breathalizer! Blow and go! Couple things to remember, though. The only number that will matter is the one on the equipment the police use, and your BAC will actually go up for 30 to 90 minutes after your last drink. Your get out of jail free card might be the exact opposite. The average price of those kits is about $120; that’s a few cab fares.Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2OPP Const.

Across Canada, laws have been tightened in recent years. Depending on the province you live in, that first offence 0.05 can cost you a licence suspension and/or vehicle impoundment from 24 hours to three days.

If you’re thinking of playing Name That Impairment, cops are getting specialty training to identify a wide range of drugs – both legal and illegal. If they suspect impairment, you don’t get the benefit of the doubt.There are people who cry foul at the RIDE and Checkstop-type programs. There are others who take to Twitter to warn of where checkpoints have been set up. I admit to a secret dark place in my cold heart for these people. Ride checks take seconds – literally. I’m against cars being tracked for insurance purposes, I’m against monitoring how and where your kids drive and virtually every other Big Brother tentacle we keep getting sold in the name of safety.

City Hall to purse partnerships for enforcing local election laws

first_imgHomeNewsCity Hall to purse partnerships for enforcing local election laws Mar. 30, 2018 at 5:01 amNewsCity Hall to purse partnerships for enforcing local election lawsMatthew Hall3 years agocity councilcity of santa monicadaily pressdowntown santa monicaNewspoliticsSanta Monicasanta monica daily presssanta monica newsSanta Monica City Hall (File photo) The City of Santa Monica will not pursue new legislation to enforce local election laws but will instead ask for more communication from state regulators when their investigations cross into the local jurisdiction.A debate over local enforcement options was prompted by a recent California Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) investigation into the Huntley hotel for violating campaign finance rules. That investigation resulted in one of the largest fines in state history but the city was unable to enforce its rules in the case because the resolution of the FPPC’s case came after the statute of limitations had expired on the City’s regulations.Presented with several options, including requesting a new state law that would have allowed the FPPC to handle local election violations, the council opted to request the FPPC inform local agencies of investigations in enough time to pursue local action. Council also asked for more education efforts regarding the local rules.In a third recommendation, Council directed staff to pursue a reciprocal arrangement with a nearby city for investigating election violations that would otherwise create a conflict of interest for the City Attorney’s office.City Attorney Lane Dilg said it’s always valuable to communicate with the community regarding the City’s rules but that the FPPC should be credited for the quality of the work they do.“I think that When the FPPC’s stipulated judgments came out the community was understandably both quite surprised and quite dismayed to learn of that conduct,” she said. “It is, in my view as former public corruption prosecutor, it was a very good investigation by a state agency and so I think it is important to understand that it is not that nothing happened with respect to that conduct. In fact, a state enforcement agency did very good work in finding, publicizing and penalizing that conduct so I do not think that should be lost here. The FPPC did their job and did it quite well in proactively initiating that investigation.”The council said it wouldn’t be appropriate to start changing election rules in an election year but it would be possible to revise the system following this November’s vote.“I think after this coming election is over it would behoove us to look at ways to take some of the special interest money out of local elections by having the residents of this city be the people that finance the elections,” said Councilman Kevin McKeown. “If politicians are going to be bought, let’s let them be bought by the people that live here.”He said the accusation that come politicians can be bought is open for debate but in his view, the problem wouldn’t be solved with the current proposal for term limits.“I don’t think some of the solutions that want to term people out of office or carve the city up solve the real problem,” he said. The problem is it’s hard to find committed local citizens that are willing to work almost as volunteers at a part-time job to spend a great deal of time to help to govern this wonderful city.”Organizers are currently gathering signatures to place an initiative on the November ballot that would limit Councilmembers to three terms. The city already has term limits in place for appointed boards and commissions.“If the concern is that money has too much influence the reality is, turn people over and big money can always find new sock puppets, that’s easy to do,” said McKeown. “Finding residents willing to commit themselves to this job is harder.”[email protected] :city councilcity of santa monicadaily pressdowntown santa monicaNewspoliticsSanta Monicasanta monica daily presssanta monica newsshare on Facebookshare on Twitteradd a commentUnrestored ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ returning to theatersMonster attack sinks Santa Monica pier in Hollywood filmYou Might Also LikeFeaturedNewsBobadilla rejects Santa Monica City Manager positionMatthew Hall10 hours agoNewsCouncil picks new City ManagerBrennon Dixson21 hours agoFeaturedNewsProtesting parents and Snapchat remain in disagreement over child protection policiesClara Harter21 hours agoFeaturedNewsDowntown grocery to become mixed use developmenteditor21 hours agoNewsBruised but unbowed, meme stock investors are back for moreAssociated Press21 hours agoNewsWedding boom is on in the US as vendors scramble to keep upAssociated Press21 hours agolast_img read more

The ambassador went on to suggest Ericsson, Nokia and Samsung as alternative 5G equipment suppliers.The official notice followed an informal warning issued by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in February, who said the presence of Huawei kit in overseas networks would make it more difficult to partner with those countries due to security concerns.German regulators last week unveiled a plan to implement more stringent security requirements for operators.

McIlroy commits himself: ‘I’m going to go down swinging’

first_imgCARNOUSTIE, Scotland – Rory McIlroy temporarily lost his superpowers during the Masters.   In one of the most surprising rounds of the year, he played tentatively and carefully during the final day. Squaring off against the major-less Patrick Reed, on the brink of history, with the backing of nearly the entire crowd, it was McIlroy who shrank in the moment, who looked like the one searching for validation. He shot a joyless 74 and wound up six shots behind Reed. No, the final round was nowhere near as dispiriting as the finale in 2011, but McIlroy still sulked the following week. He binge-watched TV shows. Devoured a few books. Guzzled a couple of bottles of wine. His pity party lasted a few days, until his wife, Erica, finally dragged him out of the house for a walk. Some deeper introspection was required, and McIlroy revealed a healthier self-analysis Friday at Carnoustie. He diagnosed what went wrong at Augusta, and then again two months later at the U.S. Open, where he blew himself out of the tournament with an opening 80. “I was worrying too much about the result, not focusing on the process,” he said. “Sunday at Augusta was a big learning curve for me because, even if I hadn’t won that tournament, but I went down swinging and aggressive and committing to every shot, I would have walked away a lot happier.” Full-field scores from the 147th Open Championship Full coverage of the 147th Open Championship And so McIlroy has a new mantra this week at The Open. Let it go. Don’t hold back. Don’t worry about the repercussions. Don’t play scared. “I’m committed to making sure, even if I don’t play my best golf and don’t shoot the scores I want, I’m going to go down swinging, and I’m going to go down giving my best,” he said. “The result is the byproduct of all the little things you do to lead up to that. Sometimes I’ve forgotten that, and I just need to get back in that mindset.” It’s worked through two rounds, even after the cool, damp conditions led McIlroy to abandon his ultra-aggressive strategy. He offset a few mistakes with four birdies, shooting a second consecutive 69 to sit just a couple of shots off the lead. During a sun-splashed first round, McIlroy gleefully banged driver on almost every hole, flying or skirting the bunkers that dot these baked-out, undulating fairways. He wasn’t particularly accurate, but he also didn’t need to be, as the thin, wispy rough enabled every player to at least advance their approach shots near the green. Friday’s weather presented a different challenge. A steady morning rain took some of the fire out of parched fairways, but the cooler temperatures also reduced much of the bombers’ hang time. Suddenly, all of the bunkers were in play, and McIlroy needed to adjust his driver-heavy approach (he hit only six) on the fly. “It just wasn’t worth it,” he said. McIlroy hit a few “skanky” shots, in his words, but even his bigger misses – on the sixth and 17th holes – were on the proper side, allowing him to scramble for par and keep the round going. It’s the fifth time in his career that he’s opened a major with back-to-back rounds in the 60s. He’s gone on to win three of the previous four – the lone exception that disastrous final round (80) at Augusta in 2011. “I don’t want to say easy,” he said, “but it’s felt comfortable.” The weekend gets uncomfortable for everyone, apparently even four-time major winners who, when in form, ooze confidence and swagger. Once again McIlroy has that look at a major. The only thing left to do? Let it go.last_img read more

Quigley leads Cologuard with Stricker, Daly 3 back

first_imgTUCSON, Ariz. — Brett Quigley birdied six of the last seven holes Friday for a 9-under 64 and the first-round lead in the PGA Tour Champions’ Cologuard Classic. The winner a month ago in Morocco in his second Champions start, the 50-year-old Quigley birdied Nos. 12-15 and 17-18 on Tucson National’s Catalina Course. ”I think I was 3 under and I saw someone 6. I was like, ‘All right, I’ve got to get going here. I’ve just got to make some birdies.’ Hit some good shots and made some good putts and all of a sudden it was a bunch of birdies.” Robert Karlsson was second, making five back-nine birdies in a 65, The 50-year-old Swede is making his second career start on the 50-and-over tour. He tied for 23rd two weeks ago in the Chubb Classic in his senior debut. Steve Stricker, John Daly, Glen Day and Rod Pampling shot 67. Hall of Famers Fred Couples and Bernhard Langer were another stroke back along with Ken Tanigawa. Couples eagled the par-5 second and closed with two birdies. ”I hit the ball pretty well,” Couples said. ”I felt good on the greens.” Quigley followed the victory in Morocco with a ninth-place tie in Florida in the Chubb Classic. ”I’m just playing golf,” Quigley said. ”I’m just trying to keep it simple.” Full-field scores from the Cologuard Classic The nephew of 11-time PGA Tour Champions winner Dana Quigley, he had five runner-up finishes in 408 starts on the PGA Tour, earning more than $11 million. ”It’s such a great atmosphere out here,” Quigley said. ”The camaraderie’s just different than the tour. Everybody still calls me ‘Champ’ out here, walking by. It’s just a nice feeling. It’s not as dog eat dog as it is out there on the big tour. And I’ve had a bunch of time off, so I’m ready to play golf and I’m happy playing golf.” Stricker won the 2018 event for the first of his five senior victories. His daughter, Bobbi Maria, made the traveling squad for Wisconsin’s golf team and played in the Phoenix area this week. ”It was pretty good, pretty solid,” Stricker said. ”No bogeys today, so that’s always a good thing going around any course. It was tricky out there at times. The wind would come up and lie down.” Daly had six birdies in a seven-hole stretch on his second nine. After playing the back nine in even par with a birdie and bogey, Daly birdied Nos. 2-5 and 7-8. He won his lone senior title in 2017. ”The greens are really good and you’ve got to hit some good shots into them because they’re pretty firm,” Daly said. ”It’s hard to get a ball real close. That’s the way we always like it here. I just made so many 20- and 30-footers today. I didn’t hit it bad, I just didn’t hit it close. I just made some putts. It’s hard to do. It’s hard to keep doing that, so hopefully I can maybe hit a few more greens and get a little closer.” He scrambled for the bogey on the par-5 17th. ”Hit it out-of-bounds,” Daly said. ”Then my third one after the tee, I killed it, caught the tree, went right behind it, chipped out, got up-and-down for bogey, so that kind of saved the round.” Defending champion Mark O’Meara birdied three of the last four in a 69. Chubb Classic winner Scott Parel opened with a 70. Ernie Els had a 73 in his second senior start. He lost a playoff to Miguel Angel Jimenez in January in his debut in the season-opening event in Hawaii. Hall of Fame pitcher John Smoltz shot 74. Playing alongside Karlsson and Thongchai Jaidee in the last group of the day off the first tee, Smoltz had five birdies, but made a triple bogey on the par-4 third and had three bogeys.last_img read more
