Share whatsapp Thursday 19 August 2010 9:01 pm KCS-content whatsapp INTERDEALER broker BGC Partners has added more than 100 brokers through its purchase of Mint Partners for an undisclosed sum, in what one insider has labelled a large-scale hiring spree. Mint co-founders Richard Barnett and Timothy Bullman will join BGC as senior managing directors, but will remain co-chief executives of their original business and operate under the Mint name. “BGC’s strong balance sheet, global presence and pre-eminent technology platform, which were key factors in our decision to become part of BGC, create a tremendous opportunity to bring new capabilities and levels of service to our loyal clients worldwide,” the pair said in a statement. BGC, which currently employs around 1,600 brokers and sales staff, said the move was part of its strategy of “selective acquisitions, hiring experienced brokers, and investing in our proprietary technology”.Sean Lynn, BGC’s president, said: “With the addition and continuing growth of the Mint brand… we expect to augment our offerings to clients and expand our customer relationships.”But a source close to the company added: “Effectively it’s a giant recruitment exercise for BGC.”Mint was set up in 2004 by Barnett and Bullman, and expanded rapidly through the recession to list around 500 institutional clients and 150 members of staff in Dubai, New York and Paris today. Barnett fell into insurance broking after dropping out of school at 16, while Bullman studied town planning before they founded Mint.

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter By Alice NolanMany of us are getting tired of where the world is going. The good news is we can change this as a community! It is the beginning of the school year and many kids are getting excited about things such as science, sports, theatre, band, chorus, writing, and school spirit. How does this change the world? Getting the next generation involved in things that are important, having them participate in groups full of diverse minds. This only enhances a world of understanding and change. This makes them think about what is important which is their community and society. Now you are asking how can I help with this I am not an educator, I do not have time with my job and family to take on a big task. Do not worry yourself you do not have too. Donate to many of the programs that are going on today in your community to help kids get excited about their community. If you know of a program that I did not mention, please add it to the comments section.Apopka Drama Department – Erin Miner – [email protected] High School Football – Find a football player and buy their Darter Card!Apopka Middle School Science – Mr. Morris – https://www.donorschoose.org/we-teach/3770017?projects=trueWekiva High School Extra Curricular Activities – Stephen Furo – [email protected] Scouts – Contact your local Boy Scouts and buy a Scout Card. – http://cflscouting.org/council/ Alice Nolan is a sixth generation Apopkan who spends many hours donating her time to her community.

Many apps have been created that can help harness and disseminate science concepts including Nearpod, BrainPop, Zondle, Socrative and Flubaroo. All of our students have been given access to Google Docs, but with only 2 Chrome carts available for the middle school, securing time on the Chromebooks is rare and often we are plagued with hardware in need of maintenance. With a dedicated set of tablets. I can make sure that my students are able to be more computer literate with an emphasis on using a computer as a tool and not just a social media device. My students will be able to enter data into spreadsheets, create graphs to help them analyze their data and then publish their data by way of formal lab reports and multimedia presentations such as video projects, Prezi and PowerPoint.My students need access to modern equipment to best learn about series, parallel and more complex circuitry. We need to get of that tangled mess of alligator clips!My StudentsAs a teacher in a diverse school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.My students are a melting pot of many backgrounds, ethnicities and learning styles, yet all are engaged when technology is involved in the learning process.I want to keep my classroom as engaging and entertaining as possible while maintaining high rigor and even higher level thinking.Many of the students do not have access to the Internet at home, so using technology at school is their only exposure to this valuable resource.My ProjectAt our school, most of our equipment has seen better days. For many of our students, this is the only place to get hands on science education.We need to replace the tangled web of alligator clips and broken mini light bulbs.These materials will bring electricity education into the 21st century and make an impact on the students.Teaching concepts like electricity are a big need in our classroom culture. Many of our students will go on to be engineers or electricians. The foundation of that life long passion can be built with these kits. Instead of beginning with a frustration over faulty equipment.I currently teach an honors level class of eighth graders. They are highly motivated and intelligent students but they are stuck in the middle. We currently don’t have the supplies to accuracy teach concepts like series and parallel circuits, resistance and Ohms Law. These snap circuit kits will make learning these concepts not only easy, but fun to do. We would usually waste 20 minutes passing out materials and organizing the chaos of the wires. These kits will allow students to get straight to labs and investigations without hesitation. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

This was made challenging by the east-west orientation of the infill lot. However, our design fills even the core of the house with light through the implementation of a 2 storey light-well which runs the length of the southern side of the house. Additional light is reflected into this light-well by the client’s office space – a white volume that sits atop the northern edge light-well. Spaces on the second storey also benefit from the light well’s luminosity; the walls adjacent to it are fully glazed and a floor to ceiling piece of frosted glass brings a very soft light into the bathroom.

LifeArc monetises cancer drug royalty interests to fund research & investment “This investment in Keytruda provides us the opportunity to continue expanding CPPIB’s global intellectual property program. Alternative assets related to intellectual property help to diversify the Fund through income streams that are typically uncorrelated to the broader capital markets. The acquisition of royalty interests from LifeArc for this market-leading cancer therapy provides stable, long-term cash flows.” Tagged with: Finance Funding 219 total views, 3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis7 218 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis7 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001. She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. Melanie May | 20 May 2019 | News UK-based medical research charity LifeArc has received almost US$1.3 billion for a portion of its royalty interests for a cancer drug, which it is to use to fund further research and investment.The royalty interest has been sold to CPPIB Credit Europe, a wholly owned subsidiary of Canada Pension Plan Investment Board. According to LifeArc, the US$1.297 billion it has received will make it one of the UK’s leading medical research charities by size of its investment assets and allows it to significantly expand its mission of advancing research that has direct benefits for human health.LifeArc secured rights to royalties from Keytruda® (pembrolizumab), which stimulates the immune system to target cancer cells, as a result of its 2007 collaboration to humanise the antibody-based therapy, now marketed by MSD.It previously sold a small proportion of its pembrolizumab royalty interest in 2016, for US $150 million to a private equity fund. It used part of this capital to establish two funds, worth £30 million: the LifeArc Philanthropic Fund provides grants for translational research in rare diseases, and the LifeArc Seed Fund invests in nascent or early stage spin-out companies.Dr Melanie Lee, CEO, LifeArc, said:“This agreement with CPPIB allows us to increase our support for new approaches and collaborations and bolster access to our expertise and resources. Ultimately, we can support life sciences research and accelerate the development of new therapies, diagnostics and devices for those people in greatest need.”Commenting on the benefits for CPPIB, John Graham, Senior Managing Director & Global Head of Credit Investments, said: Advertisement
Education Marshall Fundamental School Named a 2015 California Gold Ribbon School Honoring outstanding, innovative schools throughout California From STAFF REPORTS Published on Tuesday, May 5, 2015 | 4:47 pm First Heatwave Expected Next Week State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson today announced Pasadena Unified’s Marshall Fundamental School was among 193 middle schools and 180 high schools honored under the state’s new Gold Ribbon Schools Awards Program.“These schools are academically successful, vibrant, and innovative centers of learning and teaching,” Torlakson said. “They provide great examples of the things educators are doing right—embracing rigorous academic standards, providing excellence and creativity in teaching, and creating a positive school climate.”The California Gold Ribbon Schools Award was created to honor schools in place of the California Distinguished Schools Program, which is on hiatus while California creates new assessment and accountability systems.Schools applied for the award based on a model program their school has adopted that includes standards-based activities, projects, strategies, and practices that can be replicated by other local educational agencies. The new award is recognizing middle and high schools this year and elementary schools in 2016.The Gold Ribbon awards recognize California schools that have made gains in implementing the academic content and performance standards adopted by the State Board of Education. These include, the California Standards for English Language Arts and Mathematics, California English Language Development Standards, and Next Generation Science Standards.In addition to being chosen as Gold Ribbon Schools, 38 schools were given an additional honor of being selected as having an Exemplary Program in Arts Education, Career Technical Education, or Physical Activity and Nutrition. Schools had to apply separately for these honors, which will be denoted on the list below by a symbol that corresponds to their program. The awards, introduced in 2013, reflect Torlakson’s goals outlined in his A Blueprint for Great Schools report, which provides direction for California’s education system.Additionally, Gold Ribbon awardees that are also Title I schools were recognized as Academic Achieving Schools and are identified as such on the list. This additional recognition is given only to schools receiving federal Title I funds that assist in meeting the educational needs of students living at or below the poverty line.The Gold Ribbon schools as well as the Exemplary Program recipients, Title I Academic Achieving Schools, 2015 Green Ribbon Schools, 2015 Civic Learning Award Schools, and the National Blue Ribbon Honorees from 2014 will be recognized later this month during regional ceremonies held in Sacramento, San Diego, Visalia, and San Francisco.Please visit the California Gold Ribbon Schools Program on the California Department of Education’s Web site at www.cde.ca.gov/ta/sr/gr/ .Marshall Fundamental Secondary School, 990 N. Allen Avenue, Pasadena, (626) 396-5810 or visit www.marshallfundamental.org.The CDE California School Recognition Program is presented by San Mateo-based California Casualty.

Previous articleGoogle Street View car spotted around LimerickNext articleRiverside picnic and concert for Africa Day admin Advertisement Facebook NewsLocal NewsO’Gorman demands money for mental healthBy admin – May 12, 2009 748 Email Print Facilities at Mid Western Regional Hospital unsuitable for minorsTHE economic crisis should not mean mental health services in Ireland remain underfunded and unequal, says Colm O’Gorman, director of Amnesty International Irish section, critical of the poor state of facilities in Unit 5B in the Mid Western Regional Hospital.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up He points out that in its annual report for 2008 the Inspector for Mental Health Services found that despite having beds for children, the Acute Psychiatric Unit at the Mid-Western Regional Hospital was unsuitable for the admission of minors. The report, he adds, also called for admissions to St Joseph’s to cease and a full closure plan to be implemented.Said O’Gorman. “We are now three years into the implementation of the government’s mental health policy A Vision for Change and we still do not have an adequate implementation plan. “When it was launched many campaigners welcomed the policy because it promised an overhaul in how services are provided to enable the move from institutional care to care in the community. “At that time, Minister Harney announced an additional €25 million in funding and assured that further investment would continue. “It also recognised the crucial importance of having service users centrally involved in planning and decision-making. “But three years into the policy progress is painfully slow while funds under A Vision for Change have simply not materialised”. O’Gorman told the Post that in the 2006 and 2007 Budgets the mental health sector was allocated approximately €25 million to develop this policy but the whereabouts of much of it remains a mystery. Millions were diverted into spending gaps in other areas of the HSE. “In Budget 2008, there was no allocation at all and this year again mental health service users have not received the required additional funding.“The right to adequate and appropriate mental health services is a fundamental human right. It is enshrined in the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, which Ireland ratified in 1990. But this right is far from a reality for the majority of people seeking services today”.As far back as 1982, he recalled, the Government promised to deliver four secure units for people who might be at risk of harming others. In 2006, the promise was for five units. In 2008, there are still no units.“Because of a lack of facilities children are still being placed in adult psychiatric facilities. Figures from the Mental Health Commission show that almost 200 children were admitted to adult centres from January to October 2008.“Specialist mental health services, such as for people with eating disorders or brain injuries, are largely unavailable outside of Dublin.“It might be argued that we cannot afford to spend money on mental health. Amnesty International would respond that at a time of economic crisis when demand on mental health services in increasing, investment in mental health services is even more urgent.“Last September, the Mental Health Commission report, The Economics of Mental Health Care in Ireland, estimated the direct annual cost of poor mental health in Ireland at a staggering €3 billion, or 2% of GNP. In this economic climate, surely we should be increasing, not decreasing, investment in mental health services”. Twitter Linkedin WhatsApp
