Manulife’s net profit soared to $1.06 billion in the fourth quarter, more than double the analyst expectations. Canaccord reports record revenues, drops proposal to acquire RF Capital However, Manulife’s core earnings were disappointing at $537 million or 28 cents per share during the quarter, four cents below the consensus estimate. By both measures, Manulife’s profit was up from the fourth quarter of 2011 when it had $373 million of core earnings and a $69 million net loss. Manulife’s revenue performance was similarly mixed, with its premium income up nearly $500 million from a year before to $5.01 billion but all-in revenue, including investment and other items, down at just under $7.2 billion. That was $2.5 billion below analyst estimates, which were in line with the $9.7 billion of total revenue that Manulife reported for the fourth quarter of 2011. The most recent quarter total revenue included a $1.6 billion negative item related to its investment contract liabilities, a $2.96 billion turn from the $1.36 billion positive item reported a year before.

IIROC announces consultation on client identifiers

first_img As retail trading jumps, SEC to rethink its rules The proposal, which is out for a six-month comment period, would introduce rules that require client identifiers on each order sent to a marketplace, and for each reportable trade in a debt security. For institutional clients, dealers would have to provide a legal entity identifier (LEI); for retail clients that wouldn’t have an LEI, dealers would need to supply an account number to identify these sorts of clients. The proposals would also require unique client identifiers for clients of a foreign dealers that route orders to Canadian markets. As well, they would require dealers to flag orders that are submitted under direct access, through routing arrangements, or through a discount broker. the new measures would boost transparency, thereby enhancing the ability of regulators to monitor for market abuse (such as market manipulation and insider trading), and bolster investor protection, IIROC says its notice. This would bring Canadian markets in line with similar initiatives in Europe and the U.S. that require client identifiers to improve risk management, and regulatory oversight, IIROC says. In its notice, IIROC says that it recognizes that the rules may have significant impacts on dealers, markets, investors, and industry infrastructure firms, which will have to develop systems and processes to comply with the new rules. With that in mind, not only are the proposals out for a prolonged comment period, but IIROC indicates that there will be at least two rounds of comments on the rules. The self-regulatory organization is also striking an industry committee to help inform its consultations. The proposed committee is intended to help identify impacts, costs, and alternatives, to expanding the use of client identifiers. “We have committed to an extensive consultation so we can achieve the regulatory objectives of the proposed changes in a cost effective manner and with the least amount of impact,” says Victoria Pinnington, senior vice president, market regulation, IIROC, in a statement.

Avoid Delays By Knowing Routes To CU-CSU Football Game On Sept. 6

first_img Published: Sept. 3, 1997 Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Fans heading to the CU-Boulder campus for Saturday’s football game against the CSU Rams can save time and headaches by knowing in advance where they plan to park and by taking one of several suggested routes. CU Parking Services Manager Pam Greager said fans should try to arrive at least an hour before the 11:30 a.m. gametime to avoid traffic jams and to ensure getting parked and into the stadium on time. Stadium gates open at 10 a.m. “We expect a large crowd at this game because CSU is such a big rival of CU, so we’re encouraging fans to arrive early,” said Greager. Fans also are advised not to bring bottles or cans to Folsom Stadium. Beverages may be packed into the stadium in non-disposable containers, half gallon or smaller, and no coolers are allowed. No alcoholic beverages are allowed in the stadium and will be confiscated if brought to the game. Fruit must be quartered. Greager recommended the following routes into campus: • From Denver, take U.S. 36 to the Table Mesa-Colorado 157 exit, also known as the Foothills Parkway, which is the first exit off of U.S. 36 into Boulder. Take Foothills Parkway to Colorado Avenue and turn west onto Colorado, which ends on campus. • From Fort Collins, take U.S. 287 to the Diagonal Highway in Longmont, also known as Colorado 119. Take the Diagonal to 28th Street in Boulder, turn south onto 28th street to Colorado Avenue. Turn west into campus at Colorado Avenue. • From Golden, take Colorado 93 which becomes Broadway in the Boulder city limits. Stay on Broadway to Regent Drive and turn east onto Regent Drive to enter the campus. Recreational vehicles also should enter campus from Broadway at Regent Drive, where they will be directed either to Lot 402, south of the Fleming Law School, or to Lot 308, west of Fiske Planetarium. Tailgate parties will be allowed in specified lots on campus, particularly in the Kittredge Field lot on the east side of the Kittredge Commons Residence Hall and also in Lot 402. Both lots can be accessed by taking Broadway to Regent Drive to Kittredge Loop Drive, directly west of Fiske Plantetarium. The other public lot for tailgate parties is Lot 308 west of Fiske Planetarium. Fans do not need permits to use those lots for tailgates but they must obey state and local laws regarding alcohol use and may not serve persons under 21 years old or who are intoxicated. Alcohol served at tailgates also must remain in the parking lot. On-campus parking costs $5. People who take limosines to the game are advised to arrive an hour and a half before game time if they want to be dropped off at the main entrance on the south side of Folsom Stadium. Limosines arriving after 10 a.m. will be directed to drop off occupants at the corner of Colorado Avenue and Folsom. The limos then will be directed to Engineering Drive, which is located off eastbound Colorado Avenue immediately east of the engineering building between the building and the parking lot. Between five and a dozen limos are driven to games, on average, with more in use at Homecoming games. For more information on parking and game traffic call (303) 492-4628.last_img read more

India observes World No Tobacco Day 2019

first_img Every year, on 31 May, the World Health Organization (WHO) and global partners celebrate World No Tobacco Day (WNTD). The annual campaign is an opportunity to raise awareness on the harmful and deadly effects of tobacco use and second-hand smoke exposure, and to discourage the use of tobacco in any form.On this occasion, P D Hinduja Hospital and Medical Research Centre has announced the launch of a first-of-its-kind initiative in the city, a proposal for Mumbai’s first ‘No Smoking Street’. It aims to protect the schoolchildren, patients, senior citizens, sportspersons and the residents from the harmful effects of passive smoking.The hospital proposes to declare the 1.8 km stretch on Cadel road between the Kaapad Bazaar Junction (including the PN Kotnis Rd) and Chaityabhoomi (Sant Dyaneshwar Marg) as a ‘No Smoking Street’. The stretch houses a hospital, school, a religious institution, parks and the iconic Shivaji Park playground.To garner public support, the hospital launched an on-ground as well as online (via its social media handles) signature campaign. Mascots garbed as cigarettes handed out pamphlets, urging the citizens to sign the petition for Mumbai’s first ‘No Smoking Street’ in interest of the health and wellbeing of the citizens. As of now, a total of 3,500 people with their signatures have pledged support to the initiative of a ‘No Smoking Street’. The hospital will now be submitting a petition to the Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Devendra Fadnavis, urging the government to take the step.Elaborating further on the initiative, Joy Chakraborty, COO, PD Hinduja Hospital and MRC, said, “We feel proud to spearhead this initiative that calls for Mumbai’s first ‘No Smoking Street’. We launched this campaign in the interest of citizens who are passively being exposed to the harmful effects of smoking. We would also like to encourage citizens of Mumbai to get involved by signing the petition and having a say in creating a healthy environment. For us, this is a big step towards being a precursor for change and we hope to drive more such initiatives in the future as well. This concept can be further extended to other streets as well which have similar institutions.”On this occasion, Dr Vineet Datta, Executive Director – Datar Cancer Genetics, said, “Worldwide, over 1.8 million new lung cancer cases are registered annually. Lung cancer occurs mostly in adults who are more than 60 years of age and history of long-term tobacco smoking hugely increases the person’s risk of developing lung cancer. Other risk factors include exposure to pollution, asbestos, metals, second hand smoke, chronic bronchitis, etc.”He added, “However, thanks to the advances in molecular genetics, it is becoming more accepted that the identification of genomic alterations in lung cancer can have great impact in the choices of drugs and in our understanding of patient-specific drug sensitivity/resistance profile. This has led to significantly higher therapy successes in lung cancer patients. Advanced molecular testing is now an integral part of lung cancer diagnosis and management.”Cancer is the major disease caused by the consumption of tobacco but homeopathy can treat it better, informed Dr Kalyan Banerjee, Founder, Dr Kalyan Banerjee’s Clinic. He said, “Early lesions are often advised by oncologists to be surgically removed. This may mean removal of parts of the tongue, jaw and other parts of the throat or mouth. Homeopathic treatment by the doctors at our Clinic can potentially heal these early lesions without surgery. It is important to monitor these cases closely and detect any progression early.”Explained Dr Kushal Banerjee, Dr Kalyan Banerjee’s Clinic: “Homeopathy provides extremely effective management in cases of cancers of the mouth and throat that have undergone surgery. Homeopathy medicines help in quicker healing, pain alleviation and prevention of recurrence. Very frequently, homeopathy works in conjunction with chemotherapy and radiation, leading to better-than-expected outcomes. The doctors at our Clinic, in fact, work closely with patients in various hospitals across Delhi-NCR to help them recover from their procedures. Often, the introduction of homeopathic treatment leads to a revised, shorter course of chemotherapy than the initial plan.”Dr Neelesh Reddy, Consultant Medical Oncologist, Columbia Asia Referral Hospital, Yeshwanthpur, Bengaluru, said, “A generally floating misconception is that smoking is harmful for health. “However, any form of tobacco is dangerous. All of the tobacco products consist of nicotine, the chemical responsible for addiction. As many as 28 different chemicals have been detected either present in tobacco or are formed during the production processes that are cancer-causing agents (carcinogens). Chewing tobacco or consuming other smokeless products has been sometimes perceived safer as compared to cigarettes or other smoked tobacco products, largely due to the poor documentation of the health hazards associated with it. Smokeless tobacco is usually referred to a blend of tobacco that is chewed, sucked on or sniffed instead of being smoked. It consists of cut, ground, powdered, or leaf tobacco and is generally to be placed in the oral or nasal cavity. In some cases, nicotine is even swallowed and in some, absorbed through the soft tissues of the mouth. Regardless of the common belief, health experts point out that smokeless tobacco causes similar health risks as cigarettes as there is no such thing as harmless tobacco product.” By EH News Bureau on May 31, 2019 The missing informal workers in India’s vaccine story Heartfulness group of organisations launches ‘Healthcare by Heartfulness’ COVID care app cancerColumbia Asia Referral HospitalDatar Cancer GeneticsDr Kalyan BanerjeeDr Kushal BanerjeeDr Neelesh ReddDr Vineet Dattahomeopathytobacco consumptionWorld Health OrganizationWorld No Tobacco Day campign Menopause to become the next game-changer in global femtech solutions industry by 2025 Share Related Posts India observes World No Tobacco Day 2019 This year, the focus is on “tobacco and lung health” Read Article Comments (0) Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals releases first “Comprehensive Textbook of COVID-19” MaxiVision Eye Hospitals launches “Mucormycosis Early Detection Centre” Cancer Cancer Care News WHO tri-regional policy dialogue seeks solutions to challenges facing international mobility of health professionals Phoenix Business Consulting invests in telehealth platform Healpha Add Commentlast_img read more
