first_imgLa Center’s questionable financial future is on the mind of many residents, and a big topic of discussion among candidates for city council.The biggest issue facing the city is “finding another source of business to offset the cardrooms,” according to Larry Lewton, 67, one of two candidates running for Position No. 2 in the city.His competitor for Position No. 2, Jon Stimmel, 38, wrote in an email that changes to La Center’s budget and income are the most urgent issues the city is facing.“It is my hope that budget cuts are the absolute last resort to solving budgetary shortcomings, but if the local tax base cannot be raised through new business and other revenue streams, cuts will be unavoidable,” he wrote. “We have relied upon the local cardrooms for a long time, but this is not likely to be an option with the addition of the Cowlitz casino.”The tribe opened its Ilani Casino Resort April 24 just west of the city limits, putting La Center’s finances into question since cardroom tax revenue has historically made up a large portion of the city’s general fund. The New Phoenix Casino in La Center closed March 26, leaving the city with two cardrooms: the Palace Casino and Last Frontier Casino.last_img read more

first_imgThe U.S. Army is looking at greater cutbacks than previously considered, and there could be Alaska impacts. Ft. Wainwright and Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson are among posts nationwide being considered for reductions as part of the Army’s “2020 Force Structure Realignment.”Download AudioThe “2020 Force Structure Realignment” proposes drastic reductions in the numbers of people at at 30 individual Army posts. It uses 2011 levels as a starting point. At Ft. Wainwright that would mean going from 7,400 people down to as few as 1,600, and at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson from 6,800 to 1,500 people by the year 2020. The Army is taking public comment on an environmental assessment of the proposal.Cathy Kropp with the Army Environmental Command in Texas, says the cuts are bigger than a proposal reviewed last year that looked at reducing the nation’s Army by about 70,000, to around 490,000 soldiers.“So now we’re a year later, and the quadrennial defense review comes out, and it says that the Army needs to cut to 440,000 or 450,000 in that range. And if the sequester continues into 2016 we may need to cut to as low as 420,000,” she said.Kropp says that doubles the potential reduction, and broadens it to include non-enlisted personnel.“We’re not just looking at the brigade combat teams. This year we’re looking at all the support elements as well,” she said.Kropp emphasizes that the cuts outlined for each base total more than the overall targeted force reduction, giving the Army downsizing options.“It doesn’t mean that some of the installations won’t have the maximum cut. But in no way will every installation lifted get the maximum cut,” she said.The Army finds no environmental impacts from the proposed personnel reductions but is taking feedback on effects, including socio economic impacts. Fairbanks North Star Borough Mayor Luke Hopkins is optimistic the community will again stand up in support of maintaining a strong presence at Ft. Wainwright.“They will have these community listening sessions, like we had last year. And we had an incredible turnout, it was very strong,” Hopkins said. “This year, in this latest programmatic environmental assessment it says that they will take community input and it will be one of the four factors that they are basing their decisions on. Well, we had a pretty strong showing last year, I think we’re going to have a strong showing because these listening sessions are expected to happen in September, so we’re going to do it again.”U.S. Representative Don Young says he’s experienced numerous post war Army reductions over the decades, and urges Alaskans not to panic about the latest proposal.“Don’t worry about things you do not have control over, and I say that very sincerely. We believe our merits outweigh the worry. We believe the location outweighs the worry,” he said.Young points to the quick overseas deployment capability of Alaska based forces. The Army’s Kropp says there’s no deadline by which the Army has to release a final finding on impacts, nor is there a timeline for finalizing or implementing reductions.last_img read more

first_imgIn this undated photo provided on 2 July 2018, by the North Korean government, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, center, visits Sinuiju Chemical Fibre Mill in Sinuiju, North Korea. Independent journalists were not given access to cover the event depicted in this image distributed by the North Korean government. The content of this image is as provided and cannot be independently verified. Korean language watermark on image as provided by source reads: `KCNA` which is the abbreviation for Korean Central News Agency. Photo : APAs secretary of state Mike Pompeo prepares to travel this week to North Korea, experts cautioned that the Trump administration’s plan to dismantle the North’s nuclear weapons and missiles in a year is both unrealistic and risky.The State Department said Pompeo would arrive Friday on his third visit to Pyongyang in three months. It will be the first visit by a senior US official since president Donald Trump’s historic meeting with Kim Jong Un on 12 June in Singapore, where the North Korean leader committed to “complete denuclearisation” of the Korean Peninsula.Trump’s questionable claim afterward that the North was no longer a nuclear threat was soon displaced by doubts about how to achieve denuclearisation, a goal that has eluded US administrations for the past quarter-century since Pyongyang began producing fissile material for bombs.The president tweeted Tuesday that talks on the next steps with North Korea are “going well” and claimed his efforts had defused any nuclear threat.”If not for me, we would now be at War with North Korea!” Trump tweeted. He said: “no Rocket Launches or Nuclear Testing in 8 months. All of Asia is thrilled.”But experts say there is no proof North Korea’s halt of nuclear and missile tests means the North will take concrete steps to give up such weapons. They also say the US has an unrealistic approach to North Korea’s denuclearisation.Less than three weeks ago, Pompeo said the United States wanted North Korea to take “major” nuclear disarmament steps within the next two years – before the end of Trump’s first term in January 2021. Even that was viewed as bullish by nonproliferation experts considering the scale of North Korea’s weapons program and its history of evasion and reluctance to allow verification of disarmament agreements.On Sunday, Trump’s national security adviser, John Bolton, publicized the more ambitious one-year plan that he said Pompeo will be discussing with the North Koreans. Bolton, who has expressed hardline views on North Korea, said that if Pyongyang has decided to give up its nuclear weapons program and is cooperative, then “we can move very quickly” and they can win sanctions relief and aid from South Korea and Japan.The rapid timeline he proposed contrasts with more measured, methodical strategies that most North Korea experts insist are needed to produce a lasting denuclearisation agreement. They say any solid deal will require Kim to be completely transparent about his program – at a time when intelligence reports suggest he will try to deceive the United States about the extent of his covert weapons or facilities.The one-year plan is predicated on the North Koreans “rolling over and playing dead,” said Joel Wit, a former State Department official who helped negotiate a 1994 agreement that temporarily froze Pyongyang’s nuclear program. “If it’s our going-in position, it’s fine. We should give it a try and see where it goes. If it’s our bottom line, it’s dead on arrival and then provides a pretext for John Bolton to make mischief.”To date, Kim has halted nuclear and missile tests and has destroyed tunnels at the North’s nuclear test site, but the authoritarian nation has yet to take concrete steps toward abandoning its weapons programs. Recent think tank analyses using satellite imagery suggest that Pyongyang may even be expanding some facilities linked to its missile and nuclear programs.The Washington Post on Saturday cited unnamed US intelligence officials as concluding that North Korea does not intend to fully surrender its nuclear stockpile. Evidence collected since the summit points to preparations to deceive the US about the number of nuclear warheads in North Korea’s arsenal as well as the existence of undisclosed facilities used to make fissile material for nuclear bombs, according to the report. Some aspects of the updated intelligence were reported Friday by NBC News.A US official told The Associated Press that the Post’s report was accurate and that the assessment reflected the consistent view across US government agencies for the past several weeks. The official was not authorised to comment publicly on the matter and spoke on condition of anonymity.North Korea and Washington have yet to negotiate the terms under which the North would relinquish its weapons, so Pyongyang can be expected to seek leverage in those discussions. But those reported activities could add to misgivings in the United States, which has seen agreements with the North flounder before, often amid allegations of evasion or cheating. Pyongyang has often had its own complaints about Washington over slow delivery of aid and imposition of sanctions.”Denuclearisation is no simple task. There is no precedent for a country that has openly tested nuclear weapons and developed a nuclear arsenal and infrastructure as substantial as the one in North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons,” Daryl Kimball, executive director of the Arms Control Association, wrote in a commentary published Monday.A strategy by David Albright at the Institute for Science and International Security suggests the US needs to get Kim to disclose a complete list of all his nuclear program sites and materials, including uranium and plutonium. He also said Trump and Kim should decide whether to move the nuclear weapons out of North Korea to dismantle them or do it inside the country.Even if North Korea is cooperative, the magnitude of dismantling its weapons of mass destruction programs, believed to encompass dozens of sites, will be tough, according to Stanford University academics, including nuclear physicist Siegfried Hecker, a leading expert on the North’s nuclear program.The Stanford team has proposed a 10-year roadmap, based on its belief that “North Korea will not give up its weapons and its weapons program until its security can be assured.”last_img

first_imgUS Defence Secretary James Mattis (L) welcomes Chinese Minister of National Defence General Wei Fenghe to the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, US, on 9 November 2018. Photo: ReutersStanding side by side, top US officials urged their Chinese counterparts on Friday to halt militarisation of the disputed South China Sea, drawing a rebuke from the Chinese for sending US warships close to islands claimed by Beijing in the strategic waterway.During a round of high-level talks in Washington, the two sides aired in sometimes blunt terms many of their main differences, including a bitter trade dispute, freedom of navigation in Asia-Pacific waters, self-ruled Taiwan, and China’s crackdown on its Muslim minority.Two visiting senior Chinese officials also seized the opportunity to warn publicly that a trade war between the world’s two largest economies would end up hurting both sides and to call for keeping channels of communication open to resolve an issue that has unsettled global financial markets.Despite the airing of grievances, the talks appeared aimed at controlling the damage to relations that has worsened in recent months and at paving the way for an encounter between US president Donald Trump and Chinese president Xi Jinping at the Group of 20 summit in Argentina at the end of November.”The United States is not pursuing a Cold War or containment policy with respect to China,” US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told a joint news conference.Even as the United States and China confront difficult challenges, “cooperation remains essential on many issues,” he said, citing efforts to persuade North Korea to abandon its nuclear programme.The meeting paired Pompeo and defence secretary Jim Mattis with Chinese Politburo member Yang Jiechi and defence minister Wei Fenghe. The annual US-China Diplomatic and Security Dialogue was originally set for Beijing last month but had been called off amid rising tensions.Pompeo took aim at China over its continued building of military installations on artificial islands and reefs in the South China Sea, where China insists it has sovereignty despite competing claims from some smaller neighbours.“We have continued concerns about China’s activities and militarisation in the South China Sea,” Pompeo said following the talks. “We pressed China to live up to its past commitments in this area.”Yang said China was committed to “non-confrontation” but that Beijing had the right to build “necessary defence facilities” on what it considers its own territory and urged Washington to stop sending warships and military planes close to the islands that Beijing claims.Mattis made clear that this demand go unheeded by Washington, which insists it is acting under international law to preserve access for it and others to the South China Sea.TaiwanResponding sharply to Pompeo’s mention of Taiwan, which China considers a wayward province but which is armed by Washington, Wei said Beijing would defend its claim on the island “at any cost.”But Wei and Mattis agreed on the need to lower US-China military tensions to avoid unintended clashes, with the Chinese general saying confrontation “will spell disaster to all.” Washington has protested to Beijing about recent behaviour by its warships that the US Navy considered unsafe.While Pompeo spoke little about trade in his public comments, Yang said he hoped the two sides would find a mutually acceptable solution on the issue “before long.”China and the United States have slapped tariffs on hundreds of billions of dollars of each other’s goods, jolting global financial markets, and Trump has threatened to set tariffs on the remainder of China’s $500 billion-plus exports to the United States if the trade dispute cannot be resolved.Trump’s administration has also accused China of meddling in US politics ahead of this week’s congressional elections, charges China strongly denies.Reflecting growing US concerns about the Chinese cyber threat, a senior US intelligence official on Thursday accused China of violating a 2015 agreement aimed at stopping cyber espionage through the hacking of government and corporate data.Pompeo also reiterated US criticism of China’s “repression of religious groups,” citing treatment of Buddhists in Tibet and minority Uighur Muslims in the Xinjiang region that has drawn condemnation from human rights groups.Yang defended China’s policies in Xinjiang as measures against “ethnic separatist activities and violent terrorist crimes” but said it was a Chinese internal affair and foreign governments should not interfere.last_img read more

first_imgBy JULIET LINDERMAN, Associated PressWASHINGTON (AP) — Two federal reports released this month blast the Department of Housing and Urban Development for failing to have procedures to adequately protect children in subsidized housing against lead paint exposure.The reports, from the Government Accountability Office and HUD’s Office of Inspector General, paint a portrait of an agency without a clear set of policies for local authorities to follow when reporting cases of children with elevated blood lead levels in public housing units and properties occupied by voucher holders.(Courtesy Photo/ also say HUD also lacks an adequate system of communication with the thousands of housing authorities it’s tasked with overseeing, with reports on such matters often incomplete or missing entirely. HUD has no uniform way of keeping track of the cases or ensuring that housing authorities are completing required inspections and fixing hazardous conditions, according to the audits.“HUD lacked assurance that public housing agencies properly identified and mitigated lead hazards, thus increasing the potential for exposing children to lead poisoning due to unsafe living conditions,” the inspector general’s office said.On Friday, the Environmental Protection Agency proposed changes to standards for lead-contaminated dust on floors and window sills, aimed at reducing exposure among children.The agency said the standards apply to most housing built before 1978 and “child-occupied facilities, such as day care centers and kindergarten facilities.”The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says “no safe blood lead level in children has been identified.”The audit also found that instead of reporting cases of possible lead exposure to HUD headquarters, housing agencies sent reports to local offices. Of the 45 field offices, 24 of them don’t have established policies in place for handling such cases.The inspector general also criticized HUD for not requiring public housing agencies to report and mitigate lead paint cases in public housing built after 1977, effectively failing “to determine the risk of lead paint exposure to children” living in those buildings.“These weaknesses,” the audit said, “occurred because HUD lacked adequate policies, procedures and controls for monitoring public housing agencies for compliance with its lead requirements.”In its response to the audit, HUD noted that the agency revised its rule for handling lead paint cases in 2017, when it adopted a lower threshold for lead levels in children’s blood that would trigger action. But the agency pledged to review its processes and “follow up on all past incidences identified in the OIG’s audit, obtain missing documentation, and ensure that any remaining lead hazards are controlled.”The GAO report to Congress also criticized HUD for lacking a detailed or streamlined procedure to evaluate whether housing authorities are in compliance with lead paint regulations and enforcement. It also blasted HUD for taking only limited steps to evaluate its own lead reduction efforts; the agency hasn’t released an annual report on its efforts since 1997.last_img read more

first_imgA composite image of the Western hemisphere of the Earth. Credit: NASA Three researchers in France have authored “How ocean waves rock the Earth: Two mechanisms explain microseisms with periods 3 to 300 s,” published in Geophysical Research Letters, a journal of the American Geophysical Union (AGU). The paper attempts to explain the source of Earth’s ringing sound. Could it be because of earthquakes? Scientists were aware that earthquakes could cause the Earth to ring, for days or months. That reason did not fit other instances. Even in the absence of earthquakes, seismologists said in the 1990s, the planet constantly vibrates at very low frequencies, which they could make out with seismic instruments. But why? Call it the mystery of the Noise—this continuous vibration draws scientists to search for explanations. brought out some interesting points about the low-frequency sound, which though inaudible to human ears can be detected by seismic instruments. There was a range of thoughts about why. “Theories suggested everything from electromagnetic radiation to earthquakes and secret military operations might be to blame. Although the sound is almost certainly too faint for humans to hear, some people claim to be plagued by a ‘tinnitus’-like noise—including many residents of Bristol in the 70s, who said the sound caused headaches and even nosebleeds.”Nanci Bompey in the AGU GeoSpace blog reviewed the theories which the authors of the recent paper examined. One such theory had to do with ocean waves moving in opposite directions. Colliding waves make weak, “microseismic” waves that add up to a generalized ringing. They used models and found that opposing ocean waves could initiate a kind of seismic waves – those that take 13 seconds or less to complete one oscillation. The theory did not hold up when it came to slower oscillating seismic waves.The researchers then examined the theory that suggests the movement of waves over the bottom of the ocean generates slower oscillating, very long waves. “Long ocean waves can extend all the way down to the seafloor. As they make their way back and forth to the open ocean from the coast, these long waves travel over the bumpy ocean bottom. The pressure of the ocean waves on the seafloor generates seismic waves that cause the Earth to oscillate, said Fabrice Ardhuin, a senior research scientist at Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique in Brest, France, and lead author of the new research.” So one can also point to pressure of these long ocean waves on the sea floor.The authors’ conclusion, said Bompey, was that “instead of one theory explaining all of the microseismic activity, both theories are needed – one to explain the shorter seismic waves and another to explain the longer seismic waves responsible for the Earth’s hum.”Ardhuin said that understanding where the seismic signals were coming from could help researchers look for fainter seismic signals. That, he said, could allow them to better detect faint earthquakes far away from seismic stations or nuclear explosions. Explore further Citation: Source of Earth’s ringing? French team views ocean waves (2015, April 20) retrieved 18 August 2019 from More information: Ardhuin, F., Gualtieri, L. and Stutzmann, E. (2015), How ocean waves rock the Earth: Two mechanisms explain microseisms with periods 3 to 300 s. Geophys. Res. Lett., 42: 765–772. DOI: 10.1002/2014GL062782AbstractMicroseismic activity, recorded everywhere on Earth, is largely due to ocean waves. Recent progress has clearly identified sources of microseisms in the most energetic band, with periods from 3 to 10 s. In contrast, the generation of longer-period microseisms has been strongly debated. Two mechanisms have been proposed to explain seismic wave generation: a primary mechanism, by which ocean waves propagating over bottom slopes generate seismic waves, and a secondary mechanism which relies on the nonlinear interaction of ocean waves. Here we show that the primary mechanism explains the average power, frequency distribution, and most of the variability in signals recorded by vertical seismometers, for seismic periods ranging from 13 to 300 s. The secondary mechanism only explains seismic motions with periods shorter than 13 s. Our results build on a quantitative numerical model that gives access to time-varying maps of seismic noise sources.center_img © 2015 URI oceanography student uses crashing waves on shorelines to study Earth’s interior Journal information: Geophysical Research Letters This document is subject to copyright.

first_imgKolkata: Miscreants tried to extort money from acquaintances of a doctor after hacking his e-mail ID. On November 12 around 4:20 pm, the ID was hacked and a mail was sent. It was found that several people had received thesame mail. The Head of the Department (HOD) of Oncology department at Calcutta Medical College and Hospital, Dr Shibashis Bhattacharya alleged that on November 12 he got a phone call from one of his friends claiming that he sent a mail saying he is in danger and in need of Rs 40,000. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeOn hearing this, Bhattacharya suspected his e-mail account was hacked. He immediately rushed to a cyber cafe and changed the password. But that did not help. A few hours later, the same mail was sent to another person close to Bhattacharya. It read: ‘I hope you’re doing okay and this e-mail finds you well. Please where are you at the moment? I’m having such a frustrating ordeal right now and need an urgent favor from you. I’m unavailable over the phone, so I will appreciate if you could email me back as soon as you get this.’ Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedWhen the recipient replied through e-mail he was asked to transfer Rs 40,000 to one bank account. It was also mentioned that Bhattacharya was out of town and the money is urgently needed for a person’s surgery close to him. As he is out of the town, he is asking him to provide the money. Everyone found the matter to be fishy and did not tranfer the money. When Bhattacharya came to know that several people in his circle had received the same mail, he lodged a complaint with Cyber Crime Cell in Lalbazar. “I lodged a complaint with the police. They told me that sleuths are probing in to the matter. Thankfully nobody transferred the money to the account otherwise it would have been a disaster,” said Bhattacharya.last_img read more

first_img Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Special Report: Record BreakersMeet the entrepreneurs who are reinventing the music business. The Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne Takes a Leading Role Reinventing the Music IndustryCarving a Niche in Digital Music DistributionAn Innovative Recording Studio Goes MobileA Record Label Mines the Past for Music Aficionados and CollectorsThe Dusty Groove America Record Store Keeps on SpinningIf the founders of online jukebox service Rdio (pronounced ar-dee-oh) are right, the concept of an individual music collection is a thing of the past. “Look at what’s happened with Netflix,” says Rdio CEO Drew Larner. “The same shift is going to happen in music–and faster.” The future of music is streaming, Larner says, thanks to faster broadband access, the proliferation of smartphones and consumer acceptance of on-demand content.Founded in 2010, Rdio joins other music streaming services (Rhapsody, MOG, Apple and Pandora, to name a few), but adds a twist: The service is built around a social experience that helps consumers discover music organically. They “follow” friends and influencers and get a live network activity feed, and they share playlists on Facebook and Twitter–which features an embedded Rdio player in its user interface when you click on an @Rdio link. (There’s an API for developers.)Rdio founders Niklas Zennström and Janus Friis certainly are no strangers to the game-changing nature of the internet. They previously founded the phone-busting service Skype, the online video service Joost and–how’s this for irony?–the Napster-like music-sharing service Kazaa.A subscription ($4.99 a month for web only; $9.99 a month for mobile and web) gets you unlimited access to a constantly expanding catalog–currently around 10 million songs–that includes everything from the latest Lady Gaga release to the Flaming Lips’ live radio session of “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots Part 1.” Users can play whole albums and artist-related radio stations, create set playlists and add songs to a virtual music “collection,” queue songs for offline playback and, best of all, see what everyone else is listening to. Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global This story appears in the May 2011 issue of . Subscribe » In February, Rdio closed on a $17.5 million investment round, prompting Larner to move from L.A. to headquarters in San Francisco (and throw out about 500 old albums in the process) to head up the next stage of expansion: refining the service, launching in more countries, building up partnerships and hiring up to 15 new employees by the end of the second quarter (there are 35 now, plus a Boston terrier named Duke).In Demand: Rdio CEO Drew Larner, far left, with VPS Todd Berman and Malthe Sigurdsson.”We’re in discussions with everyone–labels, internet service providers, handheld manufacturers, celebrities–you name it,” he says. “The music industry needs a low-cost streaming service as a discovery mechanism that leads to album and ticket sales, and Rdio is a good first step in that direction.”Of course, the main hurdle is getting people to change their consumption patterns from ownership to a pay-for-access model. Based on the subscription numbers since its launch last August, though, Larner thinks Rdio can break more than 1 million subscribers within the next five years, becoming a serious industry player.But first, he has to move again. Rdio is going to need a much bigger office.center_img 3 min read April 26, 2011 Register Now »last_img read more

Poirier’s bid for 530,000 retweets remained stuck at about 30,000 with just hours to go Wednesday, so Air Canada stepped in to extend the deadline – and added creative ways to help him to his goal.On May 1, Poirer had convinced Air Canada to give him tickets to visit his Newfoundland girlfriend – if he could manage to get a retweet for every resident of Newfoundland and Labrador.With the goal still far away, Air Canada extended the deadline for “a few days”, and dramatically widened the goal posts.“We’re helping @TheCJPoirier by donating ALL the retweets Air Canada has ever received! That’s 162,000 more retweets,” the airline said on Twitter.“Donate your own retweets: just tweet @aircanada a screenshot of your most retweeted tweets and we’ll count them towards #530KforBecca. Go!”More news:  Apply now for AQSC’s agent cruise ratesIn response, Poirer offered a crying emoji and this: “THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.”Poirier, a 19-year-old barista from Clarkston, Mich., met Becca Warren of Corner Brook, N.L., online last year and they decided they wanted to meet in person after six months of texting.“Of all the girls I’ve had the chance to meet, I’m glad it was her,” Poirier said Wednesday.So Poirier took to Twitter, asking Air Canada how many retweets it would take for free round-trip tickets. Air Canada replied by asking what the population of Newfoundland was – and said it would take that many.As a backup plan, Poirier launched a GoFundMe page called #530KforBecca, in hopes of making his dream come true.He’s already received $388 of his $500 goal through donations.“I plan on going no matter what,” Poirier said in an interview before Air Canada’s 11th-hour extension. “She and I connect better than anyone in each other’s lives and I want to make every moment with her the best I can make it.”More news:  Canada raises travel warning amid escalating protests in Hong KongOn his GoFundMe page, Poirier said he dropped out of college, picked up a full-time job as a Starbucks barista and began streaming more often on his YouTube channel to save money to visit “the love of my life.”“I didn’t expect the campaign to take off as it did and I’m just thankful for everyone who’s helping us reach our goal,” Poirer said via Twitter message.

first_img October 9, 2017 641 Views The U.S. Department of the Treasury released a report outlining ways to streamline and reform the U.S. regulatory system for the capital markets, and how to reduce burdens the capital markets cause.The recently issued report was in response to Executive Order 13772 issued by President Donald Trump on February 3, 2017, which called on Treasury under the direction of Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin to “identify laws and regulations that are inconsistent with a set of Core Principles of financial regulation.”As the capital markets are a source of liquidity for small businesses as they grow, invest, and hire, Treasury identified a list of ways to reduce the burden on companies that are looking to go public or stay public, while maintaining strong investor protections.According to Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin, the U.S. has experienced slow economic growth for far too long. In this report, Treasury examined the capital markets system to identify regulations that are standing in the way of economic growth and capital formation.“By streamlining the regulatory system, we can make the U.S. capital markets a true source of economic growth which will harness American ingenuity and allow small businesses to grow,” Mnuchin said.Treasury’s recommendations include numerous measures to encourage companies toward public ownership, including “eliminating duplicative requirements, liberalizing pre-initial public offering communications, and removing non-material disclosure requirements, among other recommendations.”In light of any improperly tailored regulatory burden that can “benefit the largest companies, which are better positioned to absorb the costs, and discourage competition from new entrants,” Treasury has also identified opportunities to ease challenges for smaller public companies, including scaled disclosure requirements.A list of all of Treasury’s recommendations within this report is set forth as Appendix B, including the recommended action, the method of implementation. in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Headlines, News Share The Treasury 2017-10-09 Nicole Casperson Treasury to Streamline Capital Markets View the full report by clicking here.In addition, click here to view Treasury’s fact sheet.last_img read more
