TOKYO — A Japanese court says lawyers for Carlos Ghosn, the former Nissan Motor Co. chairman detained for more than three months in Tokyo, have requested his release on bail.The request for Ghosn’s release was made Thursday. Two earlier such requests were rejected.Ghosn was arrested Nov. 19, and charged with falsifying financial reports in under-reporting his compensation and with breach of trust in his handling of investment losses and making payments to a Saudi businessman.Auto industry veteran Ghosn, who led Nissan for two decades, recently hired a new defence lawyer, Junichiro Hironaka, who has a reputation for winning acquittals in a system where 99 per cent of the cases end with guilty verdicts.Prosecutors have fought against granting Ghosn’s release on bail, saying they fear he might tamper with evidence.The Associated Press read more

28 September 2010Flashing cameras and well-wishers’ applause greeted 18 refugees when they touched down today in Tokyo, where they will begin new lives as part of Asia’s first-ever resettlement programme, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) reported. Flashing cameras and well-wishers’ applause greeted 18 refugees when they touched down today in Tokyo, where they will begin new lives as part of Asia’s first-ever resettlement programme, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) reported.“I am very happy to have arrived in Japan,” said one of the women refugees, looking a bit overwhelmed by the attention of the television crews capturing her arrival, before boarding a bus to a reception centre where the group will spend a week acclimatizing to the country’s capital.The refugees – three married couples and their 12 children, ranging in age between one and 15 – are farmers of the Karen ethnicity who have been living in Mae La camp in northern Thailand since fleeing Myanmar. Nearly all of the children in the group were born as refugees in Thailand.They arrived in Japan after a six-hour flight as part of a pilot programme that will see Japan accept 90 Myanmar refugees over three years, making it the first country in Asia to resettle refugees.Two other families were also set to join Nay Min and the others in coming to Tokyo today, but had to stay in Bangkok at the last minute because they caught the flu. They are expected to travel as soon as they get well.The scheme has attracted huge media interest in Japan. Both on departure from Bangkok and on arrival at Narita Airport, the refugees were outnumbered by Japanese journalists.“This marks a new chapter in Japan’s strengthening of its refugee and asylum policies,” said Johan Cels, UNHCR’s Representative in the country.Japan, the agency’s second-largest donor, not only provides “generous financial support for refugees in many parts of the world, but now also provides a future for refugees in the country,” he added, voicing hope that other Asian nations will follow Japan’s example.Nay Min, the oldest male refugee in the group at 45, said he has always been a farmer because that is what the Karen people traditionally do. “But after I arrive in Japan, if they will find me any type of job, I will do it if they can train me,” he said before departing Bangkok.He said there were a few sleepless nights for his family due to excitement and happiness at the chance for a fresh start in a new country.“For 18 years we were struggling,” he said. “We got rations from the camp and we had to follow the rules of the camp.”Approximately 20,000 Myanmar refugees have already left Mae La to begin new lives, forming part of the more than 55,000 refugees who have been resettled from the nine camps in Thailand since a large-scale programme started in 2005. Most have departed for the United States, Australia and Canada.While in the camp, the refugees selected to be resettled in Japan took lessons in Japanese culture and language. In Tokyo, they will be given apartments, more language classes, help in adapting to the culture, vocational training and job support.Before they left Mae La, many of the children had hoped to become doctors and teachers, and Nay Min said his biggest hope for his new life in Japan was a good education for his three children.For himself, he said that respect for his family’s human rights was paramount. “I want to visit countries all over the world once I get a passport from Japan,” he said, as he stepped on his first of hopefully many more flights. read more

Cabinet approval has been obtained to ban the production of asbestos from January 2024, the Government said today.The Government said that asbestos is used for many products in Sri Lanka, including roofing sheets, floor tiles, cement pipes, brake pads of vehicles, papers, and ropes. About 80% of asbestos imported to Sri Lanka are used for roofing sheet production. Since 1987 importation of blue asbestos (Crocidolite) has been prohibited as it was identified as a carcinogen by the World Health Organization (WHO), and at present all kinds of asbestos including white asbestos (Chrysotile) have been identified as carcinogens. A proposal made by President Maithripala Sirisena, in his capacity as the Minister of Mahaweli Development and Environment, to control the use and import of asbestos from 2018 by adopting more beneficial substitutes was approved by cabinet.Cabinet also approved a proposal to prepare an operational programme to prohibit asbestos related productions by 2024 with the view of improving the health of the public, the Government said today.

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Ross Marowits, The Canadian Press Posted Feb 20, 2014 12:24 pm MDT Company pension shift reinforces need to plan for retirement: experts MONTREAL – The growing shift away from defined benefit pension plans is reinforcing the need for Canadians to more actively plan for their retirement, financial experts say.For decades, most workers relied on a promise of how much they would receive in retirement from their company pensions.Barring a corporate bankruptcy or dramatic underfunding, workers knew far in advance their retirement income from the company pension, plus the Old Age Security and Canada Pension Plan. Any gap with retirement needs could be supplemented with individual investments.But that pension certainty is fading as many companies — faced with large unfunded liabilities and deficits amid low interest rates — moved employees, especially new recruits, to defined contribution (DC) plans that guarantee contributions but not final monthly pensions.“There is complete uncertainty. All you have is a potential of money,” says Jamie Golombek, managing director of tax and estate planning at CIBC Wealth Advisory Services.“With a DC plan, all you know is how much money is there, how much is being contributed, so it’s very similar to having an RRSP.”Peter Merrick, an exit planning consultant in Toronto, said the erosion of corporate pensions and changes to government retirement support have put more pressure on workers to step up personal investments through registered plans, tax-free savings accounts or regular investments.“The emphasis has to be (that) you have to depend on yourself, and that’s where the planning comes in,” he said.Merrick said the shift to defined contribution plans forces workers to take an active role in their investments, while those on DB plans are sometimes caught completely off-guard when things go wrong.While some workers have seen their pensions suffer since the global recession, the solvency of Canadian pension plans improved sharply last year, according to Mercer. Almost 40 per cent of plans are now fully funded, compared to just six per cent at the beginning of 2013. Only six per cent of plans entered 2014 less than 80 per cent funded, compared to 60 per cent below that threshold a year earlier.Still, only 38 per of Canadian workers, about 6.1 million, had company pension plans of any type as of 2011, according to Statistics Canada. Nearly three-quarters, or 73 per cent, of them — mostly public sector employees — had defined benefit plans. That’s down from 84 per cent a decade earlier.About one million workers were members of DC plans, up 3.5 per cent from 2010. About 85 per cent of DC plan members worked in the private sector.In either case, the financial advisers say most workers can’t just rely on pension plans to meet their retirement needs.Those with company pensions are often left with only a few hundred dollars of room each year to purchase RRSPs. Tax-free savings accounts (TFSAs) are, therefore, a great way to invest up to $5,500 each year.While some people take out loans in the days leading up to the RRSP deadline in the hopes of a tax refund, Merrick said the rationale makes a lot less sense than it did before 1991 when people were not allowed to accumulate unused contributions.The best alternative is systematically invest a certain amount each month. It avoids interest charges and reduces the risk of make a large investment at the wrong time, he said.But such moves require planning, something many Canadians are loathe to pursue. He said people are often lulled into believing their pensions and government payments will be enough for retirement without really knowing how much money they will need to fund the lifestyle they envisage.“They have to know what they want and then work backwards,” he said.Merrick said people should be wary of putting too much money in RRSPs, a tax deferral program that could leave them exposed to a large tax bill later on and possible clawbacks on income-tested government benefits, such as Old Age Security.While a TFSA doesn’t offer any tax deduction, no taxes are paid on withdrawals and it doesn’t affect government benefits.Choosing whether to invest first in an RRSP or a TFSA depends largely on how your tax rate will change are you get older, said Golombek.RRSPs are most advantageous for workers who expect to be in a lower tax bracket in retirement. But if your tax bracket is relatively low and is expected to remain unchanged or increase, it makes more sense to pay tax up front and invest in a TFSA.Golombek said it’s helpful to seek expert assistance to wade through personal data and develop an individualized plan.“Only with a written plan will you be able to sleep well at night and make sure that you’re going to be OK.” read more

Customers transacting business at the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) office in the city (DPI photo)The Automated System for Customs Data (ASYCUDA) pilot programme, which aims to facilitate paperless and improved customs transactions, will be fully implemented in 2019, the Department of Public Information (DPI) has reported.On November 26, during his Budget 2019 presentation in the National Assembly, Minister of Finance, Winston Jordan said, with regard to inland revenue management, the government is currently exploring other options to move away from using its current platform, the Total Revenue Integrated Processing System (TRIPS), to a new software.According to DPI, the Finance Minister noted that the government will continue to improve the internal systems through an expansion of the tax services across the country with a specific focus on the hinterland regions.This year, the GRA office in Lethem was connected to the Head Office; which allows live and on-location processing of business-related licenses, among other services, thereby reducing cost and waiting time for taxpayers in Region Nine,In addition, Minister Jordan said residents within Region 1 will soon benefit from the new office in Mabaruma which will be become operational at the start of 2019.Overall, the government’s effort to encourage all citizens to become registered taxpayers has resulted in an increase in the number of registered taxpayers from over 79,000 at the end of 2017, to about 83,000 to date, DPI said.The Automated System for Customs Data (ASYCUDA) is a computerised system designed by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), in 1981, to administer a country’s customs.The system handles manifests and customs declarations, accounting procedures, transit and suspense procedures and generates trade data that can be used for statistical economic analysis. ASYCUDA takes into account the international codes and standards developed by ISO (International Organisation for Standardisation), WCO (World Customs Organization) and the United Nations.

first_imgA Florida judge has ruled in favor of plaintiff Melanie Beacham in a harassment lawsuit against debt collector MarkOne Financial. In it, Beacham says she received 23 phone calls per day about a debt she owed, and then at one point MarkOne was able to track her down on Facebook. Representatives then not only sent online messages to her but also to everyone on her friend list.In a preliminary ruling, the judge declared MarkOne is barred from contacting Beacham or any of her friends on any social networking site.The legal order is the first of its kind, and a big victory for Beacham’s lawyer Bill Howard. Howard, who focuses on consumer protection cases at firm Morgan & Morgan, said a ruling against using social networking to harass debt owners is “something we’ve been fighting for, and we finally got a court ruling on that.”Beacham’s case remains ongoing, but some could say she already scored a victory.Via Orlando Sentinellast_img read more

first_img Designing a whole new anime character is hard, even if they’re just in the background. However, artificial intelligence might make the process of generating those characters way easier.Researchers from multiple universities have come together and developed a Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) that can produce high-quality anime characters. These characters can either be completely randomized, with no human input, or produced according to different input specifications like eye color, hair color and type, and other features.If you’re looking to generate your own character, you’re in luck. There’s a demonstration website available from the creators of the GAN that lets you toy around with the AI. You can choose hair color, hair style, eye color, blush, smiles, hats, ribbons, and glasses, or you can leave any or all of those options up to chance. If you generate a particularly fetching character, you can share it on your Twitter for everyone to enjoy.If you’re looking for more technical information about the generator AI, you can head over to the project’s  page. The source code is even available for you to study and expand on if you so desire.With a lot of anime studios relying on crappy CGI to save money and production time (we’re looking at you Berserk), it would be great to see these AI’s assisting in raising production values. It’ll probably be a few years before we see anything solid come of projects like these, but we may just be on the cusp of a revolution in the way anime is made.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

first_img Hear from business owners and CEOs who went through a crippling business problem and came out the other side bigger and stronger. Listen Now July 18, 2018 4 min read Problem Solvers with Jason Feifer In the past few months, you’ve likely heard about initial coin offering (ICO) fundraising, as some startups have experienced a significant amount of funding this way. Could ICOs replace traditional venture capital?On the surface, ICOs appear to be the new, successful startup journey alternative. However, before making any hasty decisions, it is imperative that you understand how these two very different types of funding compare.Related: Basic Blockchain Lingo Every Entrepreneur Needs to KnowICOs have seen immense growth, but there are challenges.There’s been a significant amount of media coverage in relation to ICOs, especially as the blockchain and cryptocurrency industry evolves. However, taking a closer look, it appears that there are some critical gaps in the available information, which for many is misleading.Of course, there are advantages to this model, including more rapid funding and fewer regulations — which may actually be a double-edged sword. Unlike the traditional model, which requires startups to first build a company, generate revenue, and then get funding from angel investors (before landing a venture capitalist), ICOs provide somewhat of a shortcut.The growth of ICOs alone is enough to turn heads. In June of this year, ICOs surpassed $550 million in funding, which was more than what was raised through venture capital fundraising. However, these benefits are not enough to convince many partners and investors.Being an open, unregulated system, anything can happen, and when you’re dealing with millions of dollars, “anything” isn’t exactly what you want to hear. In fact, one of the primary concerns for investors is the ambiguity of utility tokens, resulting in varying rights. There are also a number of significant risks involved, including taxable proceeds.Related: 3 Things You Need to Know Before Starting Your Own ICOICOs simply are not ready to take over traditional venture capital. Here’s why.Although many support ICOs and blockchain technology overall, it is the general consensus that the technology itself is still immature, leading to many risk factors. In some countries, such as China, ICOs have been banned due to a lack of regulation, as well as a high rate of fraudulent and illegal activity.If you are considering the ICO market to fund your startup, please consider the following in relation to traditional venture capital.Poor liquidity. Although companies are raising real capital, without enough liquidity, the participation from buyers quickly outweighs the supports of market buyers. Strict regulations and the use of multiple currencies also contribute to poor liquidity.Quality control and increased risk of scams. One review, published by The Wall Street Journal, found that after analyzing 1,450 ICOs, 20 percent contained major red flags. This included plagiarized documents, fake executive teams and guaranteed returns.Higher failure rate. As of February 2018, 46 percent of the previous year’s ICOs had already failed — despite the fact that they had raised more than $104 million. This is resulting in what’s referred to as a “digital graveyard,” as many of these ICOs appear to have been doomed from the start.At the end of the day, the majority of ICO-funded startups are poorly managed and lack the required cash flow. Since the cash raised by an ICO doesn’t technically have any legal leverage, as they are not currently regulated, this option is risky for investors, as well as your reputation.Related: Want to Invest in an ICO in 2018? Here’s All You Need to Know.Token sales and the phenomenon surrounding ICOs certainly has potential, but it’s still in its infancy. It’s the new “Wild West,” and until some of the major kinks are worked out, venture capital is still largely the most promising route, as you will attract loyal investors while building valuable connections.Regardless, this is an industry that should be watched closely, as many industry leaders, including Bill Gates and John Donahoe, support the evolution of digital currency. Based on your current business model and business plan, are you unsure which option is best? Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.last_img read more
