DESOTO COUNTY, Fla. – A man turned himself into the DeSoto County Jail earlier this month for scamming people on eBay. According to the DeSoto County Sheriff’s Office, an arrest warrant was issued for Edward Carmine Jarzabek in July. Deputies said last November a DeSoto County resident reported they were scammed on eBay while trying to buy a used car. The vehicle was supposed to be delivered to them after payment, but it wasn’t.After an investigation, deputies found Jarzabek was responsible for not only defrauding someone in DeSoto County, but others in other states.

Only about one-third of the world’s 1,000 largest companies provide effective disclosure of the risks they face due to climate change, Bank of England Governor Mark Carney said Friday. Lack of full disclosure, Carney said, makes it difficult for investors, creditors and regulators to assess who is on top of the increasingly critical issue. Carney warns of climate exposure at RIA conference Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Related news Keywords Climate change Climate metrics are imperfect, but advisors still need to start using them Group of large oilsands operators commit to become net zero emitters by 2050 Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Colin Perkel “What is your strategy for managing climate-related risk?” he said. “Longer-term strategies are going to be much more important for evaluation.” At the same time, he said, the transition to an environmentally sustainable future in the coming decades provides an annual opportunity worth trillions of dollars for companies and financiers. One example he cited is the development of a green bond market in China that current estimates suggest will be worth US$500 billion a year. It’s a market Beijing is keen to open up, he said. Carney’s comments came during a session with Environment Minister Catherine McKenna at a business breakfast forum. The former Bank of Canada governor noted that the number of extreme climate events has risen threefold in the last few decades while the cost of claims paid out as a result has risen fivefold. Still, he said, part of the issue facing regulators relates to the different views on the seriousness of the threat posed by global warming and the ways governments are addressing the problem. “We want to be neutral, create the information set out there, so that all of those views can be expressed in a market that is an efficient market,” he said. In response to a request from G20 leaders, Carney said a private-sector task force that includes those who have to provide disclosure and those who use that disclosure is trying to come up with the information needed to allow consistent and effective comparisons among companies about their emissions and the risks they face. The panel is expected to produce its final report at the beginning of next year. The reality companies must face and must deal with is that governments around the world are serious about implementing various schemes aimed at lowering emissions believed to be at the root of global warming, Carney said. “Climate policy is real,” he said. “Emissions have to be capped.” Speaking afterwards, McKenna said Carney’s comments underline the importance of acting now to reduce emissions as well as the opportunities that creates for Canadian business. McKenna also said she planned to meet Friday with representatives of 22 major companies that have signed on to the government’s carbon pricing initiative. The program, she said, will lead to lower emissions and foster innovation. She rejected criticism that carbon pricing is simply another tax. “What it is is pricing pollution. We need to be doing this,” McKenna said. “It doesn’t discriminate: It just says you will pay less if you pollute less.”

When I look at the role of our State agencies, we sometimes become so focussed on our role as regulators that we forget our responsibility as facilitators. Even when they seek to enforce well-intentioned regulations, State agencies must seek to facilitate rather than to handicap and to frustrate,” he argued.The Minister said that the National Commission on Science and Technology has been reconstituted with a mandate to enable Jamaicans to understand the role of science and technology in their daily lives and how the disciplines can be used to provide growth, jobs, wealth and generally a better quality of life for all.

Democratic process For a court to undo the decisions taken in an evidently democratic process is wrong. Indeed, the court’s own rapporteur on the case, Osman Can, issued a non-binding opinion last month in which he maintained that the court had no authority over substantive constitutional changes approved by parliament but should restrict itself to procedural review. This is not even taking into account that the current constitution, which was passed in 1982, was drafted in the wake of a bloody military coup and is hardly the sort of document that will help Turkey on its way into the EU. The court’s understanding of secularism is curious. It is unclear to an impartial observer why admitting students who display religious symbols should constitute a violation of the principle that the state should remain neutral between religions or abstain from promoting a religion. Tolerating Islamic dress items in a public university does not imply an endorsement of Islam. (The issue of whether teachers should be allowed open displays of religious beliefs is considerably more complex, by contrast.) Political aims But the most worrying aspect of the ruling is that observers take it as an indication of the court’s leanings in the current litigation aimed at closing down the AK party. Turkey’s chief prosecutor accuses the AK party of violating the secular constitutional order and is seeking a five-year ban on holding political office for 71 AK party figures, including President Abdullah Gül and Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdog?an. Party closures are not unusual in Turkey – numerous Kurdish parties have been shut down over the years, and the AK party itself is the reincarnation of earlier mildly Islamist parties – but booting out the governing party would be a major blow to the country’s democracy. As Olli Rehn, the European commissioner in charge of enlargement, said in speech at Oxford on 1 May, “court cases to close political parties are not normal in EU democracies”. On 5 June, Turkey’s constitutional court revoked government measures that would have allowed women wearing the Islamic headscarf to attend classes at the country’s universities. This means that once again, women will have to choose. They can either uncover their hair as they enter university buildings – or they can remain outside. This decision was wrong on several counts. First, it forces women into a false choice between religious belief and educational aspiration. It is clearly illiberal to deny someone an education on account of their religion. It is in this context irrelevant whether the headscarf really is an integral part of Islam or merely a cultural tradition: women who wear it tend to believe the former and should have a right to act accordingly without being denied the chance to get a university education. Second, Turkey’s constitutional court considers secularism as the paramount principle upon which the entire edifice of the state rests and treats it as absolute and immutable. But there is no reason why secularism should be treated as a higher good than democracy and personal liberty. If a majority of the population wants to see secularism relaxed – and 47% of those who cast their ballot in last year’s parliamentary poll did so in favour of the ruling Justice and Development (AK) party, which has Islamic roots – then the parliament should start out on that path, as it has.
Daily Mail: Meditation is often touted as a panacea for all manner of ailments, from chronic pain to anxiety, stress and even depression.Like most sensible people, I’d always taken such sweeping claims with a large pinch of salt. However, five years ago I learned the power of meditation for myself after an accident left me critically injured and in constant pain.A freak gust of wind caught me off-guard as I was paragliding over the Cotswolds. One moment my paraglider was flying normally, the next its wing had collapsed, sending me tumbling into the hillside 30ft below.I was struck with the most agonising pain imaginable. The bone in the lower half of my right leg had been driven up through my knee and into my thigh.Read the whole story: Daily Mail
