OSC seeks new members for IAP

first_img The IAP, which was launched in August 2010, has advocated for several reforms that the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) is currently considering, such as a possible ban on embedded fees and the introduction of a best interests standard. In addition to the IAP’s basic mandate of providing the OSC with input on investor-related initiatives, it also sometimes comments on policy initiatives by other organizations that impact retail investors as well as studies investor-related issues, such as industry risk-profiling practices and seniors’ issues. The IAP “is an important voice for investors in the regulatory process, and new members will be selected to ensure that the panel continues to represent a broad range of relevant experience, skills, knowledge and perspectives,” the OSC says in a statement. OSC chairwoman Maureen Jensen will appoint the new members of the panel based on the recommendations of a selection committee comprised of an OSC vice chair and two commissioners. Applications are due by April 28.

PM Golding Congratulates P.J. Patterson on the Order of the Caribbean Community

first_imgRelatedPM Golding Congratulates P.J. Patterson on the Order of the Caribbean Community Advertisements RelatedPM Golding Congratulates P.J. Patterson on the Order of the Caribbean Community FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Prime Minister the Hon. Bruce Golding, on July 2, heaped praises on former Prime Minister, the Most Hon. P. J. Patterson, after he was conferred with the Order of the Caribbean Community (OCC). This took place at the opening ceremony of the 30th regular meeting of the Conference of Heads of Government of Caricom in Georgetown, Guyana.In congratulating Mr. Patterson, the Prime Minister said he had done Jamaica and the region proud through his many years as a leading negotiator for the movement. Mr. Golding acknowledged Mr. Patterson’s multi-faceted contribution to the Community’s growth and the role he played in the region’s integration process.Describing himself as an unrepentant regionalist, Mr. Patterson told the gathering of Caricom heads of state, government and associate members of Caricom, that the occasion was a day he would always treasure and never forget that he was joining the distinguished list of previous recipients who have made their stamp on the rich tapestry of the Caribbean.However, he noted that “Our own national self interest demands that we widen, deepen and strengthen the Caribbean community. There simply is no other way out, especially in these rough and perilous times.” He said it was a fitting coincidence that the award was being conferred in the capital city of the Community where the Georgetown Accord of 1973 was signed, “and when heads gather here today for what is widely believed to be a meeting which will determine whether we swim safely ashore or drown separately in the Caribbean Sea.”Former Prime Minister, the Most Hon. P. J. Patterson, gives nothing short of a ‘bear hug’ to Prime Minister the Hon. Bruce Golding after Mr. Patterson was conferred with the Order of the Caribbean Community (OCC) on July 2 during the opening ceremony for the 30th regular meeting of the Conference of Heads of Government of Caricom now underway in Georgetown Guyana.Mr. Patterson said while it is true that the cynics who repeatedly have predicted the impending demise of the integration process were proven wrong, Caricom leaders must not assume that its perpetuity is inevitable.He said the people of the Caribbean are eagerly waiting to hear whether the leaders will keep the boat afloat and if so how.Mr. Patterson called on the heads to look beyond the global crisis and seize this as a defining moment to identify those areas where we can increase our productive capacity to provide greater food security, additional processing of raw materials, energy and mineral resources, tourism and its linkages with sports, entertainment and culture, and the growing entertainment sector.The Caricom heads will continue their deliberations tomorrow morning (July 4) at 9:00am as they continue to search for solutions to the global crisis and its impact on the region, issues of migration within the region, and challenges to the tourism industry.center_img RelatedPM Golding Congratulates P.J.

2018 Men’s Soccer preview & early season recap

first_imgHomeFeatured2018 Men’s Soccer preview & early season recap Sep. 15, 2018 at 5:00 amFeaturedNewsSports2018 Men’s Soccer preview & early season recapGuest Author3 years agoNewssmcsoccer Blake AtwellSMC Corsair / Daily Press reporterAfter a 14-4-5 season in 2017, the Santa Monica College Men’s Soccer team is off to an impressive 5-1 start in 2018.Coach of seven years Tim Pierce said they have a good group and they’re used to winning some games from last year. Sophomore captains Cesar Oliva, Ruben Soria and Narciso Cervantes bring valuable experience and an infusion of young talent. With Coach Pierce at the helm, SMC has high expectations for the rest of the season.Cervantes, a redshirt sophomore who earned team MVP two seasons ago is one of the team’s most dominant midfielders despite missing the 2017 season due to a concussion. Redshirt freshman Aydin Kose (goalkeeper) and Eto Atiabet (forward) have starred in each of the first five games ending in shutout victories over Bakersfield, El Camino, Palomar, MiraCosta, and a 5-1 triumph against Antelope Valley.Kose hasn’t allowed a single goal yet this season, and Atiabet is first on the team with six scores. Originally from Sakarya, Turkey, Kose has started all of SMC’s first five games and compiled 13 saves over 395 minutes. He was recommended to Pierce by a former Corsair soccer player, also from Turkey.Atiabet has come a long way from this time one year ago, when he was trying to earn a spot on the soccer team via physical education classes at SMC. Pierce didn’t see a strong enough focus in Atiabet as a student athlete at first. The local Hamilton High School alum refocused, and was turning heads come last spring.“He’s an incredible athlete – we always knew that – but it was a matter of getting him refocused and having him commit himself to the group,” Pierce said.Since joining the team, Atiabet has done nothing but produce results. He leads the team with six goals, good for 13 points.The team’s first match, a home game against Bakersfield College, featured goals from freshman Jaylen Erhahon (10th minute) and sophomore Cyrille Njomo (40th minute). Kose saved all five shots-on-goal.The Corsairs traveled to El Camino College for their first road test of the season and prevailed 2-0 for the second straight game. Sophomore Yoel Cohavy scored in the eighth minute and Atiabet followed with a goal in the 58th. SMC attempted nine shots-on-goal to El Camino’s two. Each team was called for one offsides penalty. El Camino gained the edge in saves (7-2) but lost the corner kick battle, 10-2.SMC kept the road trip going over the weekend with two games in San Diego. Another Corsair soccer match meant another shutout, as Kose saved four more goals in 80 total minutes of action to seal a 4-0 victory against Palomar. Cervantes kicked off scoring for SMC with a goal in the 28th minute, via a Juan Torres assist. Cohavy picked up two assists, one to Njomo in the 52nd minute and another to Atiabet in the 73rd. Atiabet wasted no time to score again, netting a goal moments after in the 75th minute.MiraCosta College gave SMC their toughest test of the season thus far, but the Corsairs found a way to emerge victorious for the fourth game in a row. Atiabet scored in the 85th minute to give SMC a 1-0 win. MiraCosta gained in advantage in shots-on-goal (5-0), saves (7-2) and corner kicks (2-0), but couldn’t translate any of it to goals.In the 80th minute of the matchup with Antelope Valley, freshman goalie Kevin Negrete gave up SMC’s first goal of the season. Kose held another shutout in 45 minutes of action, however, and Atiabet scored two goals to seal a 5-1 Corsair victory.Despite the hot start, Pierce is focused on keeping the Corsairs grounded. “Just because you’re not conceding goals doesn’t mean you’re playing perfect soccer,” Pierce said. He added, “We need to constantly improve, get better and keep assessing ourselves.”The rest of SMC’s 2018 schedule, after this week’s matchups, includes seven home games and eight road games. Western State Conference play kicks off in October for SMC, on the road against LA Mission on Oct.
