Kosovo court bars ex-prime minister from running in election

first_imgPRISTINA, Kosovo (AP) — Kosovo’s Supreme Court has barred a former prime minister from running in the country’s early parliamentary election next month because he was sentenced for a crime in the last three years. The court ruled Friday in a challenge by Kosovo’s Self-Determination Movement to election authorities rejecting the candidacy of former Prime Minister Albin Kurti, the party’s leader. Kurti and other party lawmakers were sentenced in 2018 for using tear gas and other violent acts to disrupt parliament. No one challenged Kurti on that basis when he briefly served as prime minister last year, but election authorities said this week that he could not run in the parliamentary election set for Feb. 14.last_img

Ed Cubanski, commander of Coast Guard Sector Long Island Sound, said in a statement. “Our thoughts are with them in their time of grief.”The Coast Guard, Suffolk County police, Riverhead town police, Southold town police and the Wading River Fire Department had searched more than 400 square miles for more than 19 hours before the discovery was made.Stellges was sailing his boat, “MAC,” from Mattituck to Port Washington at the time.The incident occurred on the same day that Suffolk police rescued two Bronx men Sunday after their 24-foot Tanze sailboat ran aground in the Great South Bay for nearly 30 hours near Elder Island in Copiague, police said.The Copiague Fire Department treated both men for exposure. They had just purchased their boat in Bay Shore and were sailing to City Island when they were marooned.last_img read more

No UK input to IORP stress test as EIOPA flags ‘insufficient coverage’

first_imgAccording to the minutes, EIOPA is to address the matter in “a formal response”.A spokesman for the UK’s pensions regulator (TPR) told IPE it had written to pension schemes in May to alert them to the stress test exercise and provide them with details on how to take part.“However, no UK schemes chose to participate in the stress test and as a result no UK data has been submitted,” the TPR spokesman said.James Walsh, head of membership engagement and lead on EU issues at the Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association, said this made sense given it has been the government’s policy to take the UK out of the EU.“TPR took a light touch approach previously by doing the UK return itself rather than asking pension schemes to do so, and two years on TPR would have been anticipating we’d have left,” he said.According to a source, stress test input from at least one other country has been limited.EIOPA’s founding regulation requires it to perform stress tests of occupational pension funds – IORPs  (Institutions for Occupational Retirement Provision) – and insurers on a regular basis. The 2019 IORP stress test is supposed to cover 20 countries in the European Economic Area with “material” IORP assets, defined as more than €500m by the end of 2018.For the first time the IORP stress test this year included a component explicitly to do with environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) risks.EIOPA has previously said it expected to publish the report on the outcomes of the stress test by the middle of December. No UK data has been provided to EIOPA for the purpose of its 2019 stress test of European pension funds, IPE has learned.EIOPA – the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority – has been carrying out the stress tests every two years. The national supervisory authorities are responsible for co-ordinating the exercise in their member states.According to EIOPA, pension funds had until the middle of June to complete the exercise and submit the results to their national supervisors, who in turn had until the end of August to submit material to EIOPA.However, according to minutes from the latest meeting of EIOPA’s board of supervisors, there has been “insufficient coverage and shortcomings in the national application” in relation to the 2019 stress test. EIOPA did not respond to a request for clarification from IPE.last_img read more

Conrad Petroleum in ‘successful appraisal’ of Mako gas field

first_imgConrad Petroleum has successfully appraised the Mako gas field with the Tambak-2 well located in the Duyung PSC in the West Natuna Basin, offshore Indonesia.  The Tambak-2 well was spud on October 4 and was designed as an appraisal of the southern area of the Mako gas field. The well was drilled using the Asian Endeavour-1 jack-up rig.Empyrean Energy, Conrad’s partner in the PSC with an 8.5 percent interest, said on Monday that the Tambak-2 was drilled to a total depth of 503 meters true vertical depth subsea (TVDSS) on October 12, 2019.“The coring program, wireline logging, and pressure surveys have now been completed and confirm the well as a successful appraisal of the Mako gas field,” Empyrean stated.According to the company, the top reservoir depth came in as expected, some three meters up-dip from the Mako South-1 well.The company added that the well had developed upper sandstone unit, greater thickness, and overall quality than predicted with wireline logs showing excellent porosity, and permeabilities.Lower unit present, providing overall reservoir thickness of around ten meters, relative to 7.3 meters seen in Mako South-1.An independent review by Gaffney Cline & Associates had previously ascribed gross 2C resources of 276 Bcf (48.78 MMboe) of recoverable dry gas in the Mako field with gross 3C resources of 392 Bcf (69.3 MMboe) representing additional field upside.The next step in the campaign is an extensive drill stem test (DST) program, which will take place in the coming days.Empyrean CEO Tom Kelly said: “The fact that we have confirmed good quality reservoir at a 13.5km step out from the Mako South-1 discovery well is an excellent step forward for this project.“The wireline logs confirm excellent porosity and permeability, and we look forward to the flow testing program to commence.“This is excellent news and progress so early on in our drilling campaign and, with a further well with additional high impact exploration potential to come, we look forward to updating our shareholders of further progress.”Coro Energy, another partner in the PSC, said in a separate statement on Tuesday that the large step out from the Mako South-1 well might move 100 bcf from the 3C category to the 2C category, which could represent a very significant value addition.James Menzies, Coro Energy CEO, stated: “Coro’s first well in Indonesia has delivered a great result […].“We believe the quality of the reservoir found will convert significant volume from the 3C to the 2C resource estimates for the field and add material value to the asset.“Focus now switches to the next step in the campaign, we look forward to the results of the well testing program and thereafter further appraisal and exploration drilling will follow which we see as further significant value catalysts.”last_img read more

Given the current situation, the target date for a resumption of games from April 30 appears very optimistic. Lampard, though, feels there is little else everyone at the club can do but try to stay focused on the bigger picture. “It is very difficult at the moment because we have got nothing concrete in front of us,” Lampard said in FaceTime interview with Chelsea’s ‘The 5th Stand’ official club app.Advertisement Chelsea boss, Frank Lampard, accepts clubs cannot expect players to “push and push” themselves during the coronavirus pandemic – with no concrete timetable as to when football will return. “We have seen that things can change very quickly, so we can only go by the dates we have been given, at the moment it looks like May 1 or the end of April. “But daily or probably weekly we are looking at it, saying: ‘well, how do we train?

Tokyo Olympic organising members tests COVID-19 positive

first_imgTOKYO: A member of the Tokyo Olympics organising committee has tested positive for COVID-19. The committee said in a statement on Friday that the female staffer has been working from home since July 30 and her last day working on-site at any Tokyo 2020 facility was on July 29. “The Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (Tokyo 2020) confirmed this morning that a female employee in her 30s employed at a Tokyo 2020 office in Harumi in Tokyo’s Chuo ward tested positive for COVID-19. This is the second recorded case of infection in this organisation,” said the organising committee in its statement. “Tokyo 2020 will continue to work with relevant organisations to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and take all necessary measures to maintain a safe and secure working environment for our staff.” Earlier in April, Tokyo 2020 had said that a male employee had tested positive for the pandemic that has forced an unprecedented postponement of the Games itself. He had been working at the Tokyo 2020 main office in Harumi, Chuo-ku, in east Tokyo. Tokyo 2020 employees had prior to that been asked to work from home after Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe declared a state of emergency in the capital, Osaka and five other prefectures in early April.

first_imgThe Trojans return to Los Angeles after dominating the Arizona State Sun Devils in a 19-2 victory on Saturday. The victory continues a streak of dominance that includes a 17-7 win last week against San Diego State and concludes the regular season for the Women of Troy. The Trojans are set to rematch ASU on Thursday in the first round of the Pac-12 Tournament.Senior defender Lydia Sutton has recorded 40 ground balls in her final season, moving her career total to 133. Ling Luo | Daily TrojanThe win improved USC’s record to 2-0 against Arizona State and marked the team’s first-ever game played in Arizona. The Women of Troy were an unstoppable force on the field, entering the Pac-12 Tournament as the third seed. The Women of Troy dominated ASU throughout the game. The Trojans started off strong against the Sun Devils, scoring 3 goals unanswered before Arizona State’s junior attacker Kerri Clayton could score to bring the score to 3-1.The first half ended heavily in favor of USC, with a score of 12-1. In fact, in the 35 minutes following Arizona State’s first score, the Trojans put 15 points on the board while the Sun Devils were held scoreless through most of the second half. By the time Clayton scored her second goal of the day, the 18-2 deficit was too much for the Sun Devils to overcome. The Trojans added one more score as the second half wound down to make the final score 19-2 in favor of USC. As a whole, the Trojans collected a season-high 18 draw controls led by junior defender Jackie Gilbert, who set a single-game season high with 12 draw wins.  Gilbert’s performance on Saturday set a new career-high for her, as she moves into third in USC history with 87 draw controls.
