Pension exit charges under scrutiny

first_imgExit charges on occupational pension schemes could be scrapped as part of new proposals launched by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).The proposals aim to introduce a charging cap to allow employees early access to their retirement funds without suffering high penalty charges.The long-term aim of the proposals is to apply the cap across both occupational and personal pension schemes.Baroness Ros Altmann, minister for pensions, says: “These changes are about giving everyone who has worked and saved hard for their retirement a fair deal by removing the final barriers to the pension freedoms.”Harriett Baldwin, economic secretary to the treasury, says: “The government are delivering the most far-reaching changes to pensions in a generation. Over 230,000 people took advantage of our pensions freedoms in the first year by accessing £4.3 billion flexibly from their pension pots.“Today’s consultation signals our continued commitment to ensuring that pensions freedoms work fairly for people in practice and that hard-working individuals who have taken out occupational schemes are not disadvantaged.”The DWP will consult on the proposals with a range of parties including pension industry bodies and professionals, trustees, scheme managers and employers.last_img read more

Bayonetta 2 is Still a Perfect Game on Nintendo Switch

first_imgStay on target Trade In Your Nintendo Switch For a Better Battery (With a Catch)Controller Patent Teases SNES Games on Switch Last year when we asked Nintendo to save great Wii U games on the much more promising Nintendo Switch system, there’s a reason we used Bayonetta 2 as the top image. It was the perfect example of an utterly fantastic video game tragically trapped on a failed console. It deserved to be plucked from Hell and given a second life. Fortunately, it got that chance. Bayonetta 2 is now available on Nintendo Switch, so it’s the perfect to time remind you all that Bayonetta 2 is a perfect video game.Naturally, “perfect” is a contentious word in arts criticism, games criticism not immune. And Bayonetta 2 arguably does have problems, which we’ll talk about later. But when I say it’s perfect I mean it’s the most fully realized, uncompromising version of itself, of what it wants to be. It’s a flawless, sharp, masterfully cut diamond. Lean and mean with zero fat. However, a masterpiece like this doesn’t spring up fully formed. Bayonetta 2 is the phenomenal current endpoint of a fascinating gaming subgenre, and it’s worth understanding that subgenre to better celebrate Bayonetta 2’s successes.Bayonetta 2 is of course the sequel to the first Bayonetta, which is also now available on Switch. But really both games are follow-ups/parodies of Capcom’s Devil May Cry series, developed by lots of the same folks (Hideki Kamiya most famously) who would go on to form Bayonetta’s developer Platinum Games. Whereas Devil May Cry is about a cool, swaggering dude demon-hunter Devilman made by Team Little Devils, Bayonetta is an over-the-top farce about a burlesque witch who kills horrifying stone-faced fleshy buff cherub bird angels with her hair clothing made by Team Little Angels. It’s just the logical extension. A pop idol cover of “Moon River” to accompany the murder? Naturally!AdChoices广告Both series are also prime examples of the buzzwordy “stylish action” genre. These games are about defeating groups of increasingly ridiculous enemies with your own increasingly ridiculous bullet and melee combos. They allow for fighting game-style technical combat precision but in a single-player beat ‘em up framework. A Western counterpart to this would be something like God of War.And what makes Bayonetta 2 so special is how ruthlessly it cuts right to the heart of what makes these games so appealing. Devil May Cry, and to an extent the first Bayonetta, for whatever reason still felt the need to pace themselves like traditional video games. Sure you have lots of thrilling combat but in-between encounters there’s slow filler like puzzles and jumping sections. You can still feel some of this genre’s residual Resident Evil roots while grappling with the camera angles in Bayonetta’s opening subway station or Devil May Cry 4’s repeated use of gothic locations.But Bayonetta 2 is so casually, confidently disinterested in all of that fluff and distraction. Shit is constantly popping off in Bayonetta 2. The propulsion is unbelievable. The tutorial has you slaughtering the divine on a fighter jet during Christmas before Godzilla-sized demons break out of your weave. The moon peeks out from behind clouds and suddenly you’re walking straight up buildings. You ride something called a Climax Horse in Hell. The sequel can’t quite ramp up scale the way the first game does, but that’s because it’s at 11 from the very start. And it dances right up to the delirious edge before becoming too stimulating and therefore numbing.At the core of the pleasure remains the pitch-perfect combat system. Choosing all sorts of guns and swords and demon limbs to strap to your feet as well as new techniques to complement them gives the fighting ongoing depth. And the sheer tactile pleasure of wailing on enemies, dodging at the right moment to slow down time, and wailing on them again can’t be matched. The combo system encourages you to fight as fast and fluidly as possible. It feels, and looks like, an expressive performance, a dance starring the perfect leading lady. It’s a beautiful melding of visual and gameplay aesthetics. The only game that maybe comes close is the rapid and visceral demon slaughtering of Doom 2016.Bayonetta 2’s inspiring complete commitment to being the most it can be itself extends to its presentation, too. It ditches the weird gray haze of the first game for a much more vibrant, colorful sheen. On Switch, it stays closer to a consistent 60 FPS even in portable mode, which is a great way to experience the bite-sized finger workouts. Other Switch improvements include scanning amiibo for unlocking Nintendo-themed costumes and local multiplayer for the Tag Climax co-op mode. But even more so than with other Nintendo Switch game ports, the best part of Bayonetta 2 on Switch is that it’s Bayonetta 2 on Switch.There are perfectly valid issues one could have with Bayonetta 2. You could dislike the optional touch controls. You may feel unsatisfied if you breeze through the brief campaign without worrying about scores. You could not care about the nonsense anime story. You could find the hyper-sexualization of famous Smash Bro Bayonetta herself gross rather than empowering. And even as someone who loves Bayonetta 2, I hope there’s room for improvement if just for Bayonetta 3’s sake.But none of these surface imperfections, for me, can diminish the core perfection that is Bayonetta 2. You owe it to yourself to play it, and thanks to Nintendo Switch, you have one less excuse.Buy it now!Bayonetta 2.Nintendo SwitchProtect Your Nintendo Switch With These Awesome CasesLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Yaniv Altshuler Uses Big Data and Artificial Intelligence to Predict Consumer Behavior

first_imgJanuary 25, 2019 Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals In this series called Member Showcase, we publish interviews with members of The Oracles. This interview is with Dr. Yaniv Altshuler, founder and CEO of Endor, which improves business decisions and revenue by predicting consumer behavior. It was condensed by The Oracles.Who was your biggest influence growing up?  Yaniv Altshuler: My parents. They taught me to believe in myself and my ability to achieve anything. They also taught me success that comes at the expense of others is not something to aspire to.What are you more skilled at than most people in the world?  Yaniv Altshuler: I can intuitively understand when a technology has disruptive potential. During my years of research, this helped me focus my energy in the direction most likely to result in breakthroughs.When an industry’s processes have fallen behind, there is opportunity for disruption. Therefore, you want to look for technology that tangibly strives to improve a process, whether it’s digital or otherwise. When you’re evaluating new technology, look at its use cases to identify and evaluate how the product can be adopted. Disruptive technologies can be slow to take root, but by doing that, it’s possible to make an educated guess about a product’s potential.How did your business get started?Yaniv Altshuler: I was doing my post-doctoral research at MIT with Professor Alex “Sandy” Pentland and his Human Dynamics Group. We used big data to build a theory to predict the behavior of crowds. We demonstrated how this new theory of “social physics” could help government agencies and financial institutions with some of their most ambitious challenges.I believe the best academic research touches people’s lives, so I wanted to apply social physics at scale in the real world. This became a huge passion and challenge, which led me to found Endor in 2014. Today, our proprietary prediction technology finds patterns in human behavior using big data and artificial intelligence. We empower banks, retailers, and Fortune 500 companies like Coca-Cola and Mastercard with fast and accurate intelligence to predict consumer behavior, make informed decisions, and increase revenues.What book changed your mindset or life? Yaniv Altshuler: “Atlas Shrugged” by Ayn Rand is an important book to me because it celebrates entrepreneurialism and the potential of individuals. The novel makes it clear that we can and should try to impact our world — and that entrepreneurialism is a way to do that. The fact that the book is still a bestseller more than 60 years later fills me with joy and hope.What advice would you give to your younger self?Yaniv Altshuler: I would tell my younger self to always trust your gut feeling, play on your intuition, and do everything with a big smile on your face.If you fail, you’ll become smarter. If you succeed, you’ll gain more self-confidence — and the emotional and financial rewards. You never know how much you can achieve until you take a leap of faith and try.How do you define great leadership?Yaniv Altshuler: Passion is one of the most important qualities in a leader. Without passion, it’s hard to build an argument that will compel people to follow you. Once you’ve found your passion, identify your vision and communicate it to your team in an inspiring way.How do you hire top talent?Yaniv Altshuler: We adopted the “love at first sight” approach to hiring. That means we only hire people whose eyes glitter with the realization that what we’re building is amazing. After the first interview, it should be clear that our company is the only place where they can imagine working. Once this feeling is mutual, we just have to make the numbers fit.Which single habit gives you 80 percent of your results?Yaniv Altshuler: I always assume I missed something, and that it will pop up at the worst time possible. I check everything again and again. Then I check it again. I teach everyone on my team to follow the same pattern.What are you working on right now?Yaniv Altshuler: I’m studying human interactions and how they can predict trends and behavior patterns to help us understand humanity in unexpected ways. I’m specifically studying how to predict human behavior in retail and banking.I’m interested in how we can use data to encourage meaningful changes in society. For example, I think it’s possible to create a data-driven retail environment that is uniquely specific to each customer.What is the most exciting concept that you spend time thinking about?Yaniv Altshuler: I was exposed to the notion of singularity after reading Ray Kurzweil’s books in my 20s. Singularity is the hypothesis that artificial intelligence will trigger runaway technological growth, resulting in unfathomable changes to civilization. While technology can significantly enhance our capabilities as individuals, I believe true singularity will emerge through our interactions with each other.Read more about Yaniv’s prediction technology here. 5 min read Register Now »last_img read more

Yes officials plugged in the malwareladen USB seized at MaraLago

first_imgPretty sure this is not what they meant when they said “taking a bullet for the president.” This is infosec training 101, and could have just as easily corrupted the evidence as the other way around.— briankrebs (@briankrebs) April 8, 2019 The first thing you want to do when you pull a USB drive off someone allegedly lying their way into presidential hangout Mar-a-Lago is plug it in your computer. Oh, wait, maybe don’t do that?A woman by the name of Yujing Zhang was arrested on March 30 attempting to bluff her way into Donald Trump’s private Florida club. In addition to two Chinese passports, the New York Times reported that she carried with her four cell phones, a hard drive, and a USB drive infected with malware. And, according to the Miami Herald, U.S. government officials straight up plugged that bad boy into a computer — a bit of news that generated some serious double takes in the infosec community. “[Secret Service agent Samuel Ivanovich] stated that when another agent put Zhang’s thumb-drive into his computer, it immediately began to install files, a ‘very out-of-the-ordinary’ event that he had never seen happen before during this kind of analysis,” reports the Herald. “The agent had to immediately stop the analysis to halt any further corruption of his computer, Ivanovich said.”  in todays episode of: the government discovers a thing that hackers have been using as a tool and in awareness training for almost ten years…— D̒͂̕ᵈăᵃn̕ᶰ Ť̾̾̓͐͒͠ᵗe͗̑́̋̂́͡ᵉn̅ᶰtᵗl̀̓͘ᶫe̓̒̂̚ᵉrʳ (@Viss) April 8, 2019 Amazing.Image: Sina Ettmer  /  EyeEm / gettyBy Jack Morse2019-04-09 00:05:06 UTC It’s widely understood that plugging in random USBs is never a great idea, as they have a non-zero chance of containing malware. So, it’s of course possible that Zhang’s thumb drive was just like every other thumb drive and happened to contain some malicious files — as opposed to malware specifically designed to spy on the president or the club where he spends so much of his time. It’s possible, but as the New York Times reported on April 8, Zhang’s hotel room contained some other interesting items discovered in a search that suggest it’s also decidedly not possible. Namely, nine additional USBs, five SIM cards, $8,000 in cash, and a radio-frequency device used to find hidden cameras. However, all may not be terrible in the land of U.S. government cybersecurity. While at first glance plugging in Zhang’s sketchy USB drive may look like a case of a monumental security screw-up, if a cybersecurity expert were to plug it into a specific computer with the goal of checking it for malware, then we would say they were doing their job. This, thankfully, looks to be what happened here — a fact made clear by a clarifying sentence in a New York Times article.“Mr. Ivanovich testified that the computer analyst who reviewed Ms. Zhang’s devices said that the thumb drive she was carrying had immediately begun installing a program on his computer,” it explains.In other words, a computer analyst plugged the device in specifically in order to review it. Which, hey, perhaps all is not lost after all.last_img read more

Docker and Microsoft collaborate over WSL 2 future of Docker Desktop for

first_imgWSL was a great effort towards emulating a Linux Kernel on top of Windows. But due to certain differences between Windows and Linux, it was quite impossible to run the Docker Engine and Kubernetes directly inside WSL. So, the Docker Desktop developed an alternative solution with the help of Hyper-V VMs and LinuxKit to achieve the seamless integration. On 16th June, Docker announced WSL 2 with a major architecture change where the company will provide a real Linux Kernel running inside a lightweight VM instead of emulation. This approach is architecturally similar to LinuxKit and Hyper-V but  WSL 2 has an additional benefit that it is more lightweight and tightly integrated with Windows. Even the Docker daemon runs properly on it with great performance. The team further announced that they are working on new version of Docker Desktop that would leverage WSL 2 and the public preview will be expected in July. The official blog reads, “We are very excited about this technology, and we are happy to announce that we are working on a new version of Docker Desktop leveraging WSL 2, with a public preview in July. It will make the Docker experience for developing with containers even greater, unlock new capabilities, and because WSL 2 works on Windows 10 Home edition, so will Docker Desktop.” In context with integration of Microsoft the blog reads, “As part of our shared effort to make Docker Desktop the best way to use Docker on Windows, Microsoft gave us early builds of WSL 2 so that we could evaluate the technology, see how it fits with our product, and share feedback about what is missing or broken. We started prototyping different approaches and we are now ready to share a little bit about what is coming in the next few months.” The future of Docker Desktop will have WSL 2 The team will replace the Hyper-V VM by a WSL 2 integration package. The package will offer the same features as the current Docker Desktop including automatic updates, transparent HTTP proxy configuration, VM: Kubernetes 1-click setup, access to the daemon from Windows, etc. This package will contain both the server-side components that are required to run Docker and Kubernetes and the CLI tools to interact with those components within WSL. WSL 2 will enable seamless integration with Linux With WSL 2 integration, users will experience seamless integration with Windows, but even Linux programs that are running inside WSL will be able to do the same. This creates a huge impact for developers that are working on projects related to the Linux environment, or with a build process for Linux. Now there won’t be a need for maintaining both Linux and Windows build scripts. For example, a developer at Docker can now work on the Linux Docker daemon on Windows, using the same set of tools and scripts as a developer on a Linux machine. The bind mounts from WSL will now support inotify events (inotify is a Linux kernel subsystem) and will have almost identical I/O performance as on a native Linux machine. This will solve one of the major Docker Desktop issues with I/O-heavy toolchains. This feature will benefit NodeJS, PHP and other web development tools. Improved performance and reduced memory consumption The VM has been setup to use dynamic memory allocation and schedule work on all the Host CPUs. It will be consuming lesser memory which would be in the limit of what the host can provide. Docker Desktop will leverage this for improving its resource consumption and use CPU and memory as per its needs. The CPU/Memory intensive tasks such as building a container will also run much faster. Leveraging WSL 2 Docker desktop will support bind mount One of the major problems that the users have with Docker Desktop is the reliability of Windows file bind mounts. The current implementation is dependent on Samba Windows service, which could be deactivated, blocked by enterprise GPOs or even blocked by 3rd party firewalls etc. But Docker Desktop with WSL 2 solves these issues by leveraging WSL features to implement the bind mounts of Windows files. Few users seem to be unhappy with this news, one of them commented on HackerNews, “So, I think the main sticking point here is the lock-in of Hyper-V. By making a new popular feature completely dependent on a technology that explicitly disables the use of competitive hypervisors, they’re giving with one hand and taking with the other. If I was on VM-Ware’s executive team, I’d be seriously thinking about filing an anti-trust complaint and the open source community should be thinking about whether submarining virtualbox is worth what Microsoft is doing here.” Others think that WSL 2 is a full Linux kernel that runs in Hyper-V. Another comment reads, “WSL 2 is a full Linux kernel running in Hyper-V rather than an emulation layer on top of NT.” To know more about this news, check out the official post by Docker.

7 US court districts bring indictments against Mexican drug lord El Chapo

first_imgWASHINGTON, D.C. – Seven federal districts in the United States have brought indictments against Mexican cartel leader Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, setting off a competition to be the first to prosecute the man U.S. officials had described as “Public Enemy No. 1” before his arrest this past weekend.The number of cases against Guzmán, head of the powerful and violent Sinaloa drug cartel, show the breadth of his multibillion-dollar empire. He has been indicted in San Diego, the Southern and Eastern districts of New York, Chicago, Texas, Florida and New Hampshire.But Justice Department officials said it is an open question whether Guzmán, who was the world’s most-wanted drug lord, will ever be prosecuted in a U.S. courtroom.“There’s an old saying that possession is nine-tenths of the law,” said Stephen Vladeck, a professor of law at American University in Washington and an expert in extradition law. “But in this case, it’s actually closer to 10-tenths, because if they want to go first, they can. If Mexico wants to prosecute El Chapo under their own laws, it’s their right to do so. And all the U.S. can do at that point is take a number.”The Mexican government formally charged Guzmán with cocaine trafficking and organized crime, officials in the Mexican Attorney General’s office said Monday. The crime boss is facing at least eight apprehension orders dating back to his escape from prison in 2001.A judge assigned to the case has until 3 p.m. Tuesday to decide whether to initiate a trial or release him, the prosecutor’s office said. Guzman has been assigned an attorney, Óscar Quirarte, who has not yet spoken about the case.Guzmán “was the number one target we were going for in the world,” said a senior Drug Enforcement Administration official who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss an open case. “No one was as sophisticated. No one was moving the volume of narcotics he was moving, not just in the United States but worldwide.”Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto’s administration, which took office more than 15 months ago, has extradited fewer people to the United States than the previous Mexican government.In the last four years of the administration of Felipe Calderón, Peña Nieto’s predecessor, the number of extraditions to the United States topped 100 per year twice, reaching a high of 115 in 2012. That number fell to 54 last year, the first full year of the current government.“The fundamental reason for extradition is to have firsthand information,” Jesús Murillo Karam, Mexico’s attorney general, said in an interview this month. Karam said that under Peña Nieto, intelligence-sharing with the United States is more reliable, so “that requires fewer extraditions.”Mexican authorities say they cooperate closely with U.S. law enforcement officials and are willing to send criminals back to the United States. But they increasingly want people who commit crimes in Mexico to serve their time in Mexican prison before being sent to the United States. That way, Mexican authorities have full access to the intelligence generated from suspects and can show that the country’s judicial system can reliably hold top criminals.Guzmán, who is being held at a maximum-security prison called El Altiplano in Almoloya de Juárez, once before slipped from the hands of Mexican law enforcement. He was captured in Guatemala in 1993 and sent to Mexico’s high-security Puente Grande prison. But he escaped in 2001, on the eve of his extradition to the United States, allegedly spirited out in a laundry cart.Obama administration officials said there are likely to be lengthy negotiations to decide which country tries Guzmán first.“The decision whether to pursue extradition will be the subject of further discussion between the United States and Mexico,” said Justice Department spokesman Peter Carr.One of the last major cartel bosses to be extradited to the United States was Osiel Cárdenas Guillén, who ran the Gulf cartel and was sent to the States in 2007. He was sentenced to 25 years in prison, a term that some Mexican officials thought was too short. U.S. officials were upset when another drug boss, Rafael Caro Quintero, convicted of the murder of DEA agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena, was freed from Mexican prison last year after 28 years behind bars.Cárdenas committed “much more serious crimes than Caro Quintero,” Karam said, but received a shorter sentence in the United States.In 2009, when Guzmán and 35 other cartel members were indicted in Chicago on heroin and cocaine trafficking charges, Patrick Fitzgerald, then the U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Illinois, called the cases the “most significant drug importation conspiracies ever charged in Chicago.”Three years later, Guzmán and 23 other members of Sinaloa and other cartels were indicted in El Paso.“Murder and kidnapping, money laundering and drug trafficking are the four corners of this organization’s foundation,” U.S. Attorney Robert Pitman said. “For years, their violence, ruthlessness, and complete disregard for human life and the rule of law have greatly impacted the citizens of the Republic of Mexico and the United States.”Five other federal prosecutors have made similar announcements.Julie Tate contributed to this report.© 2014, The Washington Post  Facebook Comments Related posts:The intellectual architect of the US’ modern war on drugs has died After 23 years in prison, top assassin for Pablo Escobar is a ‘reformed’ man ‘El Chapo’ extradition could take a year: prosecutor Univision to air TV series on ‘El Chapo’last_img read more

Mortgage Application Volume in the Buyers Market

first_imgMortgage Application Volume in the Buyer’s Market in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, News, Origination As we move further into this year’s buyer’s market, mortgage applications jumped 8.9 percent from one week earlier, according to recent data from the March 22 Mortgage Bankers Association’s (MBA) Weekly Mortgage Applications Survey. MBA’s Market Composite Index increased 8.9 percent on a seasonally adjusted basis week over week, and 9 percent unadjusted.Meanwhile, refinance volume increased 12 percent from the previous week, and the seasonally adjusted Purchase Index increased 6 percent week over week.”The spring buying season is off to a strong start. Thanks to an unexpectedly large drop in mortgage rates following last week’s FOMC meeting, purchase applications jumped 6 percent and refinance applications surged over 12 percent,” said Joel Kan, MBA’s AVP of Economic and Industry Forecasting. “Rates dropped across all loan types, and the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is now more than 70 basis points below last November’s peak. The average loan size increased once again to new highs for both purchase and refinance loans, as borrowers with – or seeking – larger loans tend to be more reactive to the drop in rates.”According to the MBA, the average contract interest rate for 30-year fixed-rate mortgages with conforming loan balances ($484,350 or less) decreased to 4.45 percent from 4.55 percent, with points decreasing to 0.39 from 0.42 (including the origination fee) for 80 percent loan-to-value ratio (LTV) loans.RE/MAX data indicates that the housing market shifted into a homebuyer’s market in February, and MBA’s data indicates buyers are taking advantage, and the market is starting to see some balance.“Trends of five months or more often indicate significant shifts, and the year-over-year trends in declining sales and rising inventory have both reached that length now,” said RE/MAX CEO Adam Contos. “It’s interesting to see the slowing sales and growing inventories that benefit buyers and at the same time the record prices that benefit sellers.

New identification requirements for domestic flights

first_imgA high number of fraudulent identity practices have lead to Air Vanuatu introducing compulsory I.D. checks for all domesti­c flights next year. Effective 01 February 2019, Air Vanuatu passengers flying from Port Vila, Santo and Tanna will be required to present photo ID at check-in.This new policy will eventually be enforced across the entire domestic network with the remaining ports requiring photo identification by 01 May 2019.The airline said they had endured several cases of adults traveling on children’s fares which was a fraudulent act, and impacted on revenue.Chief executive officer Derek Nice said the airline wanted to make the process as smooth as possible and would ensure the public was aware of the new requirements in time for the 01 February change of procedure.“Air Vanuatu will accept several forms of photo identification including the Vanuatu National ID card which is available free from Civil Status. Other acceptable forms of photo I.D. include the VNPF card, driver’s licence, passport, student card and official company I.D. cards.”Infants and children (up to 11 years) will also be required to show identification, the Civil Status Office can also issue these.Mr. Nice said he was aware some people in the outer islands would need time to obtain photo I.D., hence the long lead in time for implementation.“It is world wide standard in aviation for photo identification to be required for safety, security and revenue best practice. We hope this does not cause our passengers any inconvenience and do not expect it to with these measures not being introduced until next year,” he said.Air Vanuatu will inform passengers of the changes through their sales offices and local media in the coming months.Media inquiries:         Tiffany Carroll tel +678 7747153 or +61417512233The post New identification requirements for domestic flights appeared first on Discover the South Pacific.Source: Bloglast_img read more

Waiting for a push from Guterres

first_imgON THE second day of the Cyprus conference on Thursday, Turkey sought to gain a tactical advantage with its foreign minister Mevlut Cavusoglu telegraphing to the Greek Cypriots they should forget about the scrapping of foreign guarantees or full withdrawal of Turkish troops from the island post-settlement.“Greece and the Greek Cypriot side expect no troops and no guarantees. This is a dream they should awake from,” Cavusoglu told the Turkish press on the sidelines of the ongoing conference in Crans-Montana, Switzerland.The aggressive remarks came a day before UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres is set to join the conference, sparking speculation that Ankara’s top diplomat aimed to force a ‘mini crisis’ ahead of the UN chief’s arrival and to position the process on a different track.Cavusoglu described the ongoing round of Cyprus negotiations as a “final” series of talks, according to Anadolu news agency.“We cannot continue negotiations forever,” Cavusoglu told reporters.“This conference on Cyprus is the final one and there should be a conclusion at this round in Crans-Montana,” he added, calling on the Greek Cypriot leadership to bring “acceptable proposals” to the table.Greek media claims about an alleged plan to cut Turkish troop numbers in Cyprus by 80 per cent were dismissed by Ankara earlier on Thursday, Anadolu said.Government spokesman Nicos Christodoulides demurred when asked to respond to Cavusoglu’s remarks, except to say that, given the talks are delicately poised, the parties involved should avoid airing such views.During a press briefing in New York, Stéphane Dujarric, spokesman for the UN Secretary-General, confirmed that Guterres was en route to Switzerland as scheduled.He declined to say how long the UN chief would remain at Crans-Montana.But UN Secretariat sources told the Cyprus News Agency that Guterres would spend at least two days there.Earlier in the day, a report in The Guardian suggested that “privately, the UK has been pressuring Turkey to accept full troop withdrawal”, to be replaced by a multilateral force, either EU- or UN-run, as guarantor.“Ankara has suggested it will propose reducing troop numbers by 80 per cent at the conference but has called a full withdrawal ‘unrealistic’,” the Guardian wrote, citing a well-briefed source as saying “it’s going to require patience.”The conference in the Swiss resort is taking place on two tracks, or tables: internal issues are being negotiated by the Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots, while taking part in the talks on the external aspect are the two sides in Cyprus as well as Turkey, Greece and the UK.It is widely acknowledged, however, that a breakthrough on security and guarantees is what will make or break this latest attempt at hammering out a Cyprus deal.Reporting from Crans-Montana, the CyBC’s correspondent cited Turkish-Cypriot sources close to the talks as saying their side was ‘not averse’ to considering the multinational force allegedly proposed by the UK, provided that the force included Turkish troops as well.The day’s work began at around 10.30am Cyprus time with negotiations between the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot teams, discussing a range of issues.President Nicos Anastasiades and Turkish-Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci joined the talks shortly after noon.The UN Secretary-General’s Special Adviser on Cyprus Espen Barth Eide met with Cavusoglu, and then twice with Akinci.Later, Eide requested an unscheduled meeting with Anastasiades and Akinci, which delayed the wider conference by an hour and a half.Christodoulides said that meeting was held because the UN official sought to take stock of developments up to that point.But reports said problems arose during the day due to the issue of the four freedoms relating to the status of Turkish nationals in Cyprus after a settlement.The evening conference – security and guarantees – got underway shortly after 8.30pm, concluding at around 10.30pm.On the way out, Anastasiades said there was no crisis but there had been some ‘complications’ over the four freedoms.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?

Defence minister briefs British counterpart on EEZ situation

Gab unequivocally

"Gab unequivocally disavows and condemns all acts of terrorism and violence. in Brazil for eight years. Camerons record is less than impressive. on Sept 12 2015 Melina Mara—The Washington Post/Getty Images But female Sanders supporters also offer a glimpse into how some voters are weighing the historic nature of a female presidency against other political priorities "The excitement of her being the first woman President is a little more muted than it was in 2008" says Anna Greenberg a Democratic strategist unaffiliated with any presidential campaign "And thats just because shes been around" Determined not to let that excitement wane Clinton is taking a different tack toward the historic nature of her campaign than she did in 2008 In that race she largely avoided talking about her gender until victory was slipping away This time shes making it a key calling card of her candidacy a way to rally supporters to separate herself from Obama and to paint herself as something other than a political insider during a year when populist disaffection is rewarding outsiders She has called for a country in which "there are no ceilings for anyone" and "where a father can tell his daughter You can be anything you want to be including the President of the United States of America" She routinely mentions her mother and granddaughter in campaign appearances and images of little girls dressed up as Madame President litter her Instagram feed "Who can be more of an outsider than a woman President" she said on the Today show last month The Clinton campaign doesn’t seem worried Officials of course never expected she would get unanimous support from them; such an expectation one adviser says would be sexist in its own right "Its a double standard" Clinton campaign pollster Joel Benenson says of "the assumption that a group of people based on gender age ethnicity religion ought to be on lockstep with a candidate" Even Clinton herself says women shouldnt vote for a candidate merely because shes a woman "Im always in favor of women running" she told TIME in a recent interview when asked about the appeal of Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina the only woman in the GOP field "But people need to hold womens policies up to light and determine what their answers to problems would be before deciding to support them" For some Sanders supporters in New Hampshire thats exactly their reasoning "Hillary is that polyester pant-suited lady from the ’70s who lip-speaks feminism but doesnt grapple with the issue of poverty" says Sylvia Gale a 66-year-old former state legislator and Sanders volunteer "The best feminist for the job is Bernie Sanders" ‘There will be another Hillary Clinton’ Dudley Dudley is as surprised as anyone by her support for Sanders The 79-year-old broke barriers in New Hampshire as one of few female lawmakers in the 1970s and most of her friends are backing Clinton "I expected to support her until I heard Bernie Sanders speak" she says over popovers at a café in Portsmouth NH "I will work very hard for her if she gets the nomination but Im hoping that Bernie Sanders becomes President" Dudley who made headlines in New Hampshire when she prevented shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis from building an oil refinery off the coast in the 1970s is from the generation that made the first push to get women elected to office in large numbers Her unusual name her first name plus her married last name became her political tagline when she ran for Congress with the slogan "Dudley Dudley Congress Congress" (she lost) But even among some women of this barrier-breaking generation the idea of seeing a female President doesnt carry the urgency one might expect A woman holds up a sign at a rally for democratic presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders on Nov 8 2015 in Las Vegas John Locher—AP "Is it that important of a goal" asks Darrow the office administrator "I know Hillarys prowomen but Bernies definitely prowomen I just feel hell fight a little harder hes not beholden to anyone" And after the race barrier fell with Obamas historic election some think its only inevitable that the gender barrier will fall by the wayside too if not now then next time "I dont think of it as now-or-never" says Dudley "There will be another Elizabeth Warren another Hillary Clinton" That might be wishful thinking for older women Greenberg says The Republican wave elections of 2010 and 2014 decimated a generation of rising Democratic politicians leaving the partys bench especially bare at the gubernatorial level which is often a pipeline to the presidency (of 18 Democratic governors three are women) Elizabeth Warren will be 75 on Election Day in 2024 well past Clinton (69 on Election Day) and Ronald Reagan (69 when he took office) And there are only a handful of Democratic women in the Senate who will be younger than 70 before the next presidential election (Among them New York’s Kirsten Gillibrand 48 is seen by some as having a promising future on the national stage) If Clinton isn’t elected the first female President could just as easily be a Republican Greenberg says "As someone who personally would like to see a woman President" she says "Im a bird-in-hand person" Pro-Sanders not anti-Clinton For Dudley Sanders positions on income inequality and money in politics are more important than any loyalty she might feel for a fellow woman politician "Its not anti its pro" she says "I don’t really have anything bad to say about Hillary" The vast majority of female Sanders supporters agree with Dudley: they’re motivated by affection for Bernie Sanders not aversion to Hillary Clinton But among some New Hampshire voters who see Sanders as an antidote to big-money politics Clinton hatred runs high Laura Thompson a 57-year-old freelance writer who calls herself the "original feminazi" says she resents the idea that all women should rally behind Hillary "She assumes that we are her constituency We are not" Thompson says emphatically over coffee in Keene NH Thompson who volunteered for Sanders and says she gave him her first-ever campaign contribution vowed to sit out the election if Clinton is the nominee Most Democratic women backing Sanders however say the stakes are too high to sit out a general election if Clinton ultimately is their nominee "Id have to hold my nose and vote for her" says Dottie Oden a 68-year-old retired teacher backing Sanders Morgan Dudley Dudleys daughter says she thought shed support Clinton until she heard Sanders ideas on making college affordable The younger Dudley who is in her 50s and works in university development is disappointed with what she sees as Clintons flip-flopping But she says Clinton could win her over if she took an unpopular stance on a major issue: "Thats how you gain peoples trust saying I know this isnt popular but its the best thing for the country" ‘Ready for Hillary’ stickers in support of Hillary Clinton Spencer Platt—Getty Images As she prepares for the second Democratic debate this weekend Clinton can take comfort in the fact that most Democratic women dont need convincing "Hillary has been through everything" says Jennifer Dollar a 53-year-old Clinton supporter in Nashua who sees the candidates battle scars and flexibility on policy as assets not liabilities "I fight for something I call I write letters and then they change" she says "Am I going to attack that" And even the most enthusiastic female Sanders supporters say they were impressed by Clinton’s strength in the first debate and the congressional hearing before hostile Republican critics Clinton Darrow says "handled herself with fantastic grace" "If she got the nomination" Darrow says "Id be happy and hopeful" See an Intimate Portrait of Hillary Clinton With an ice cream cone in hand Hillary waves to the crowd in Weedsport New York as she

administration’s new policy of imposing work requirements as a precondition of receiving Medicaid benefits Consequently residents of Kentucky who are on Medicaid and considered healthy enough to work must now comply with certain requirements to receive the health care provided by the government program The Trump administration announced on January 11 that states could impose work requirements on Medicaid recipients One day later the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services approved a waiver for Kentucky adopting that new policy for the next five years Under the program which officially starts in July Medicaid beneficiaries between the ages of 19 and 64 who do not meet exemption requirements must complete at least 80 hours per month of “community engagement” which includes work school job skills training or community service If they do not complete the requirements Medicaid eligibility will be suspended The program exempts several categories of recipients including pregnant women those diagnosed as “medically frail” primary caregivers and former foster care youth “It will be transformational” Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin said in an announcement Friday “Transformational in all the right ways in good ways in powerful ways” More than 2 million people are on Medicaid in Kentucky according to the Kaiser Family Foundation which is nearly one quarter of the state’s population Kentucky was among the 33 states to adopt the Medicaid expansion program that is a cornerstone of the Affordable Care Act enacted under the Obama administration but Bevin has been seeking to implement these changes since he was elected in 2015 Bevin also defended the program from criticism that it was essentially punishing lower income people and insisted that the program will only impact those who are physically able to work The recipients of the program who are unable to comply with the new regulations he said will remain unaffected “This idea that somehow we are punishing people that this will be a detriment to people I think is a huge huge misunderstanding of what people need” he said noting that he himself came from a low-income family “There is dignity associated with owning the value of something you receive” Write to Alana Abramson at AlanaAbramson@timecomThe UK might be about to experience one of the warmest ends to the year on record as an unseasonable
