Startup Spotlight: A new way to rally immune cells into action against cancer By Meghana Keshavan Jan. 4, 2017 Reprints Alex Hogan/STAT Immunotherapy is a delicate balance: You have to rally a patient’s immune cells into action to kill diseased cells, but keep them away from healthy tissues. Vedantra Pharmaceuticals, a startup based in Cambridge, Mass., is working on a way to refine that process.The company has developed next-gen nanoparticle vaccines — engineering vesicles that help ferry the therapy straight to the lymph nodes. That helps the body generate a stronger immune response. The work, based on research at MIT, is still preclinical, but Vedantra hopes it can be used to bolster cancer treatments. It’s focusing first on malignancies provoked by the HPV virus — such as cervical and head and neck cancer. What is it?

Annual Market Crackdown Ensnaring the Careless

first_img News AvatarDaily NKQuestions or comments about this article? Contact us at [email protected] North Korea Market Price Update: June 8, 2021 (Rice and USD Exchange Rate Only) Annual Market Crackdown Ensnaring the Careless News At the beginning of last month, the North Korean authorities ordered local commercial management offices to strengthen oversight to ensure that products were being sold at official state prices, according to a source from Shinuiju on February 6th.Meeting with Daily NK on a visit to Dandong, China, the source explained, “Friction has started up again between market managers and traders because of orders at the start of the year to make sure that everything is sold at the state-designated price. They do this every year, but this year they are confiscating products and transferring them for sale in state stores.”Price-related orders are issued annually in North Korea, where the authorities are still reluctant to countenance market price autonomy despite fifteen years of ad hoc marketization. As such, the Ministry of Procurement and Food Policy sets the prices of key goods and posts them at the entrance to markets. These prices are approximately uniform across the country.Only ‘regional’ items being treated differently; prices for these items are set by pricing bureaus established under provincial People’s Committees. Most obviously, the state price of seafood is cheaper in coastal areas than in inland parts of the country.However, real price differentials make selling at these state prices untenable; for example, the market price of a kilo of rice in Shinuiju is currently hovering around 3,200 won, while that for corn is 2,200 won, yet the state prices are 1,600 won and 690 won respectively. Therefore, traders traditionally simply pretend to sell at state prices when inspectors turn up, before resuming trade at market prices once they have left.But the problem this year is that enforcement is stricter than usual, with illegally priced products being confiscated, transferred directly to state stores and sold at state prices. According to the source, “In the past state prices were only symbolic and inspectors didn’t enforce them. Even if they confiscated something you could pay them a little and get it back. But now they are just selling those products directly at state prices, so a lot of people who have ignored the crackdowns are ending up in a real fix.”Not only that. “People who are caught like this are banned from trading from a stall for a month,” the source added. “Traders are reacting very carefully now as a result.”However, history has taught traders that the crackdown is unlikely to last too long, and anticipate a return to less strict oversight in due course.

BoA, MBIA settle mortgage securities dispute

CMHC expands insured mortgage purchase program The agreement still requires approval from the New York State Department of Financial Services, which it says is expected to be received shortly. As part of the settlement, Bank of America will pay MBIA approximately US$1.7 billion in cash and return to MBIA all of the outstanding MBIA senior notes (due 2034) that Bank of America acquired through a tender offer in December 2012. Additionally, Bank of America will terminate all of its outstanding credit default swap protection agreements purchased from MBIA on commercial mortgage-backed securities, as well as terminate certain other trades in order to close out positions between the companies. MBIA will also issue warrants to purchase 9.94 million shares of its common stock, or approximately 4.9% of its currently outstanding shares, to Bank of America at an exercise price of US$9.59 per share. The warrants may be exercised at any time prior to May 2018. The bank is also to provide a senior secured US$500 million credit facility to MBIA Insurance Corp. Bank of America says that it will record US$1.6 billion in additional pretax charges in the first quarter of 2013, of which US$1.3 billion is related to the settlement and the remainder is related to other monoline insurers. The after-tax effect of the additional charges will reduce the company’s first-quarter 2013 net income to US$1.5 billion from the US$2.6 billion reported on April 17, it reports. Fitch Ratings says that the settlement “represents another positive step” for Bank of America in reducing litigation risk. “We view the settlement as manageable for BAC in the context of capital and better core earnings in the first quarter. Furthermore, this settlement eliminates all potential future liabilities from MBIA,” it says. “Legacy litigation risks remain, but resolution of the MBIA dispute serves as another example of ongoing progress reported in reaching manageable settlements since early 2011,” it adds. New York AG suing Boa, Wells Fargo In the wake of Bank of America’s billion-dollar settlement with MBIA Inc. over mortgage failures, another litigation issue is rearing its head for the bank with the New York state attorney general’s office announcing that it is suing BofA and Wells Fargo for allegedly violating terms of a settlement reached last year concerning mortgage servicing. New York’s AG, Eric Schneiderman, said that he intends to sue both Bank of America and Wells Fargo “for repeatedly violating” the terms of the national mortgage settlement, which was signed in 2012, requiring the five largest mortgage servicing banks in the US to improve their customer service practices by complying with new mortgage servicing rules. Schneiderman said his office has documented 339 violations of standards dictating the timeline for banks to process mortgage modification applications by the two banks since October 2012. The allegations have not been proven. “The five mortgage servicers that signed the national mortgage settlement are legally required to take specific, rigorous, and enforceable steps to protect homeowners,” said Schneiderman. “Wells Fargo and Bank of America have flagrantly violated those obligations, putting hundreds of homeowners across New York at greater risk of foreclosure. I intend to use every tool available to my office to hold these companies accountable under the terms of the national mortgage settlement.” Last year, New York joined 48 states, the Department of Justice, and the five largest mortgage servicers in negotiating the settlement, which includes $25 billion and mandated forms of consumer relief, such as mortgage modifications for at-risk homeowners. It also imposes new servicing standards designed to address long standing complaints from consumers and their advocates that servicers persistently failed to provide fair and timely services to their customers. Bank of America (NYSE:BAC) has reached a US$1.7 billion settlement with MBIA Inc. (NYSE:MBI) over claims of mortgage underwriting failures in the years leading up to the financial crisis. The U.S. bank giant said Monday that the deal represents a comprehensive settlement with MBIA “to resolve all outstanding representations and warranties claims and all other claims between the parties.” Keywords Mortgage-backed securitiesCompanies Bank of America Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Feds launch revised insured mortgage purchase program Related news Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Judge approves SEC, Citigroup regulatory settlement James Langton read more

Corporations must Register Trade Names as Business Names

first_imgRelatedCorporations must Register Trade Names as Business Names RelatedCorporations must Register Trade Names as Business Names Corporations must Register Trade Names as Business Names UncategorizedSeptember 29, 2007 FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The amended Registration of Business Names Act, which became effective on September 3, stipulates that all corporations trading in names other than their corporate names, are mandated to register such trade names as business names.“Whereas the registration of trade names was previously optional, since the amendment, all corporations trading in names other than their corporate names are mandated to register such trade names as business names,” Deputy Chief Executive Officer at the Companies Office of Jamaica (COJ), Shellie Leon emphasised in an interview with JIS News.Miss Leon indicated that the use of trade names was very common and gave as examples in the marketplace, Western Union, Paymaster, Digicel, Burger King, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Quad, Asylum, Hedonism 11 and Hedonism 111.Elaborating, she noted that “under the amendments to the Registration of Business Names Act, the definition of firm has been expanded and now includes a corporate body trading in a name other than its corporate name.” The Act, she continued, mandated every firm having a place of business in Jamaica and carrying on business under a name other than its corporate name, to register in the manner directed by the Act.“Prior to the amendments, if a company wanted to register a trade name, what would have to happen is that the company and an individual would have to join together in partnership and register,” Miss Leon explained.She pointed out that Liability companies may now register as the sole proprietor of a business without having to register as a partnership as was the case under the previous Registration of Business Names Act.The procedure, she outlined, involved the company completing a BN1 form with details of the name under which the corporate entity would trade as a business name.Additionally, “they would also include the nature of business the trade name will be carrying on and as is customary, they would sign under seal with two officers of the company and then the tax registration number of the company would be affixed on the form,” she pointed out.She also pointed out that “on the business name form would be the detail as to who is authorized to sign on behalf of this company,” adding that this procedure is similar “to when a natural person or individual walks in to register and they complete that BN1 form.”“Having completed the form, the fee of $2,000 is paid and the certificate will be issued, provided all the relevant information has been accurately given,” Miss Leon said.Commenting on the present procedure, she noted that it was much simpler, because previously the company was compelled to join with an individual to register the business name.She pointed out that someone would have to go and join with a limited liability company, which meant being personally exposed, along with their assets, “since the company could not go ahead and register this trade name on their own.”With the amendments, “whatever liability falls on that business, it is going to be that of the company registered as a sole trader.so no natural or individual person will have to jointly bear that responsibility,” she added.Miss Leon pointed out that the transition procedure was also simple for companies that registered businesses in the form of a partnership prior to the amendment.“If such companies would like to terminate such arrangements, all they have to do is close that business by writing a letter to the COJ and complete a form BN6, pay the relevant closure fee of $600, and then they could proceed to register as a sole trader,” she explained.Miss Leon implored all companies operating in unregistered trade names to register such names as business names, as it was illegal to operate or advertise without such registration.The amended Registration of Business Names Act is to provide more protection for consumers and also for the proprietors of registered businesses.For further information on the Registration of Business Names Act, contact the COJ at 908-4417/4427-9 or visit its website at: www.orcjamaica.com.center_img RelatedCorporations must Register Trade Names as Business Names Advertisementslast_img read more

ST-Ericsson parts company with CEO

Hard Day’s work: Long journey for champ

first_imgSHEBOYGAN, Wis. – It’s hard to imagine now looking at images of a smiling, athletic young man with the photogenic wife and precocious young son running about that there was a time when this dream could have just as easily been a nightmare. On Sunday at the PGA Championship, with the azure hues of Lake Michigan as a back drop, Jason Day completed a journey that started with the Australian fittingly perched on the deep end. “It’s been pretty well documented that Jason could have been on the wrong side of the tracks. It could have easily gone the other way, and he would have been in a totally different spot,” said Colin Swatton, Day’s caddie and longtime swing coach. “He wouldn’t have been standing on the 18th green at Whistling Straits. He’s come a long way to be here today.” It’s roughly 9,800 miles from Kooralbyn – a small country town, which is Australian for remote, about an hour west of the shimmering beaches of the Gold Coast – to Sheboygan, Wis. But for Day it’s the metaphorical distance he’s traversed that matters most. The trek began 14 years ago not long after Day’s father, Alvin, died of stomach cancer and the gangly 12 year old decided, as many children do in times of crisis, to act out. He got in trouble, hung out in the wrong circles and alarmed his mother, Dening, enough that she took a second job, scraped together just enough money and sent Day to the Kooralbyn International School, a sport specific institution where she hoped he’d find a purpose. Things didn’t go well at first between Day and Swatton, who was Kooralbyn’s golf instructor at the time. Day was angry and obstinate, Swatton was methodical and entrenched to the point he painted lines on the sidewalk at Kooralbyn that were exactly one yard apart to teach students how to correctly pace off yardages. “We had a little disagreement initially, but from that day forward he dedicated himself to being the best player in the world,” said Swatton, who evolved into something of a surrogate father for Day. “He put more hours in and worked harder than anyone else.” And like that Day went from obstinate to obsessive. Swatton once told Day to work on a certain chipping drill and went off to work with other students. When he returned hours later Day was still working on the same drill. It was the type of single-minded focus that left unchecked could wreak havoc, but under proper supervision could be harnessed and honed to produce frighteningly impressive results even from a player who Swatton concedes wasn’t even the best golfer at his academy. To a point, Day’s climb followed a predictable script, with numerous amateur titles followed by just a single year on the Web.com Tour before he quickly ascended to the Big Leagues. But things weren’t as easy for Day on the PGA Tour. He played two full seasons before his first Tour victory and found himself bouncing on and off the disabled list with alarming regularity. Day was sidelined with a thumb ailment (2014), back issue (2014), ankle injury (2013), wrist problem (2007) and, most concerning of all, a debilitating bout with vertigo that flared up at the U.S. Open. It became standard fare to start each interview with Day by asking about his health, so much so the normally affable player waved off your scribe last year on the practice range at the Tour Championship. “Don’t even ask,” he glared before offering a smile, “I’m feeling fine.” But if he’d become weary of dealing with doctors, it was the increasingly loud drumbeat of his play in major championships that had truly begun to wear on him. “I guess you can take me off the best players without a major [list] now,” he said on Sunday after winning the PGA Championship. It was only fitting that Day completed his Grand Slam quest at Whistling Straits, which was the site of his first near miss at a major when he tied for 10th at the 2010 PGA. There were runner-up showings at the 2011 Masters (which may have hurt the worst considering the inexplicable Australian drought at Augusta National) and U.S. Open. He finished third at the 2013 Masters, which was won by Adam Scott, and was again runner-up at the U.S. Open later that season. But the ultimate blow may have been at last month’s Open Championship where he began the final round with a share of the lead, but Day missed a 25 footer for birdie at the 18th hole that would have earned him a spot in the playoff won by Zach Johnson. “He was disappointed that he didn’t get it done [at St. Andrews], but it was a matter of looking at what he did really, really well at that golf tournament,” Swatton said. If necessity is the mother of invention, then it’s easy to see how Day used yet another disappointment to fuel what turned out to be a historic week at Whistling Straits. After making birdie on his final three holes to win by one shot at the RBC Canadian Open, Day led by two strokes starting the final round at the PGA where, paired with the best player in the world (Jordan Spieth), he picked apart the course and the leaderboard like a guy who already had a six-pack of Grand Slam titles on the shelf. He birdied four of his first seven holes to pull away from the field and put the finishing touches on what turned out to be a three-stroke victory with a towering 4-iron into the par-5 16th hole for what was essentially a walk-off birdie. “A lot of tears. This one means a lot. We’ve come so close so many times,” Swatton said. “He always wanted to get better and his goal was to be the No. 1 golfer in the world.” While he’s not No. 1 yet, his dream of winning a major has come true, and it all materialized alongside a dusty hill in Kooralbyn not long after Dening Day took a gamble, and a second job, on a young man who could have gone either way.last_img read more

Rory wins for first time since ’19 at Wells Fargo

first_imgCHARLOTTE, N.C. – Rory McIlroy found his comfort zone at Quail Hollow and left with a trophy he badly needed. McIlroy closed with a 3-under 68 and made it tough on himself at the end Sunday, driving into the hazard left of the 18th fairway and needing two putts from 45 feet for a one-shot victory in the Wells Fargo Championship. What mattered was ending 18 months since his last victory in the HSBC Champions in Shanghai, along with finding a strong semblance of his game as he prepares to return to Kiawah Island for the PGA Championship. “It’s never easy,” McIlroy said. “It felt like a long time.” It showed. McIlroy seemed to be on the verge of choking up at winning on Mother’s Day, thinking of his mother, Rosie, and wife Erica. She was at Quail Hollow with their daughter, Poppy, and McIlroy doted on them before signing his card. McIlroy seized control with two splendid bunker shots, getting up-and-down for birdie on the reachable par-4 14th and the par-5 15th, and then holding on at the end. Abraham Ancer ran off three straight birdies and nearly closed with a fourth one, posting a 66 for a runner-up finish, the fourth of his career as the Mexican seeks his first PGA Tour title. McIlroy finished at 10-under 274 for his 19th career victory, and his third at Quail Hollow. “This is one of my favorite places in the world,” said McIlroy, who picked up his first PGA Tour title at Quail Hollow in 2010. “To break the drought and win here, it’s awesome.” Wells Fargo Championship: Full-field scores | Full coverage It was a tough finish for Keith Mitchell, who started the final round with a two-shot lead and quickly stretched it to three shots with a 6-iron out of a fairway bunker into a stiffening breeze to 12 feet for birdie. But his short game let him down all day, leading to bogeys on the fifth and sixth holes that cost him the lead, and on the 14th hole and 15th holes when he had to settle for pars after being in position for birdies. Mitchell, whose only victory was the Honda Classic just over two years ago, needed to finish alone in second to qualify for the PGA Championship through the money list. But he dropped a shot on the 17th and closed with a 72 to tie for third with Viktor Hovland, who had a 67. Rory McIlroy wins Wells Fargo Championship for third time Former U.S. Open champion Gary Woodland had a share of the lead early on the back nine until he went through a bad patch of back-to-back bogeys on Nos. 12 and 13, and settling for pars on the next two scoring holes. He shot 71 and finished fifth. Bryson DeChambeau managed a tie for ninth following a 68-68 weekend that began with him flying home to Dallas thinking he had missed the cut. McIlroy, along with going 18 months without a win, slipped to No. 15 in the world, his lowest position in more than a decade. He brought on swing coach Pete Cowen for an extra set of eyes. They worked hard last week in Florida as McIlroy tried to get back to understanding what he does so well with the golf swing. Winning is not an instant cure. He hit only three fairways on Sunday, and the last one nearly got him in trouble. His ball landed on the hill left of the winding creek, just short of the water, in a deep hole of shaggy grass. He wisely chose to take a penalty drop instead of gouging it out, and he sent an 8-iron towering toward the green, landing safely in the fat of the putting surface. That brought out of the loudest cheers of a day filled with them. The Wells Fargo Championship had more energy than any tournament since golf returned from the pandemic. Just what McIlroy needed. He thought he would enjoy some quiet of no spectators. It didn’t take long for him to realize he missed the energy. “To bring out the best in myself, I needed this,” he said. And when it was over, he turned and heaved his golf ball toward thousands of fans.last_img read more
