The British trader accused of sparking the 2010 US flash crash has lost a bid to overturn his bail conditions at High Court, landing him back in custody. Navinder Sarao, who is charged with 22 counts of illegal trading activity in a US court, is fighting extradition and has been in custody since his arrest last month. Sarao’s legal team went to the High Court this morning to appeal a £5.05m bail set by magistrates following his arrest. An asset freeze on Sarao’s £5m, held in a US trading account, has prevented him from paying bail, his legal team said. They argued the £50,000, put up by his family, is a sufficient amount for bail. “He’s lived in the same house with his family all his life, he doesn’t even own a car” his legal team said in court. “To put it bluntly, it is inconceivable that he would let his family down by failing to appear.” The prosecution claimed not all of Sarao’s money had been accounted for, and allege he has around $40m in accounts. Justice Cranston said there would be no change in the bail conditions. Sarao has not yet pleaded to the charges. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity WeekPost FunKate & Meghan Are Very Different Mothers, These Photos Prove ItPost FunInvestment GuruRemember Cote De Pablo?

Facebook Twitter Twitter By Alan Hartnett – 27th May 2020 Bizarre situation as Ben Brennan breaks up Fianna Fáil-Fine Gael arrangement to take Graiguecullen-Portarlington vice-chair role Electric Picnic organisers release statement following confirmation of new festival date Pinterest RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Gardai renew Road Safety Appeal as deaths rise 9% in 2020 Pinterest Electric Picnic Facebook News Gardai and The Road Safety Authority (RSA) have renewed their appeal for road users to take extra care when using the roads, as provisional collision figures for 2020 show that there has been a 17% increase in the number of fatal crashes and a 9% increase in road deaths compared to last year.60 people have been killed in 56 fatal collisions up to the 27 May 2020, compared to 55 deaths in 48 fatal collisions up to 27 May 2019.Of great concern for both the Gardai and RSA is the doubling in pedestrian deaths this year. 18 pedestrians have been killed this year compared to 9 in 2019. Laois Councillor ‘amazed’ at Electric Picnic decision to apply for later date for 2021 festival Chief Superintendent Paul Cleary, Garda National Roads Policing Unit said, “In light of the increase in road deaths this year, An Garda Síochána will launch a Roads Policing enforcement operation this coming June Bank Holiday weekend.“The operation will concentrate on the four ‘Lifesaver’ offences of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, speeding, non-seatbelt wearing and using a mobile phone while driving.“Of concern is the number of people arrested so far this year for driving under the influence of an intoxicant; either alcohol or drugs.“Notwithstanding the recent Covid-19 restrictions with reduced traffic on our roads and the closure of licenced premises, we have still seen 1,153 people detected for driving under the influence of an intoxicant, since the 27th March 2020.“In addition, Roads Policing members are still detecting motorists driving in excess of the speed limits, not wearing seatbelts and driving while using mobile phones.

Road safety is a public health issue and the way we all behave on the road determines whether people live, suffer injury or die.“I am appealing to all road users to please take a closer look at how you behave on the road and to take greater responsibility and practice good road safety habits. This means drivers being alert to danger and slowing down and pedestrians walking on the right-hand side of the road towards oncoming traffic if there are no footpaths.”Highlighting the risks over the bank holiday Mr Michael Rowland, Director of Road Safety, Driver Education and Research said “With good weather forecast this weekend the roads are going to be busy even with current travel restrictions.“As has been the pattern throughout the current health crisis many people will be out walking, jogging and cycling. The lifting of some restrictions in Phase 1 of the government’s road map also means that more people will be driving, for example to garden centres and other locations where outdoor sports have resumed.“Secondary students are also officially on their summer holidays so you can expect to see more young people walking or cycling on the road. Don’t forget too that it’s a busy time on farms with silage cutting so you will encounter farming machinery on the roads.“So, motorists need to slow down and expect the unexpected while walkers and cyclists should be seen and use the road safely.” Electric Picnic Home News Gardai renew Road Safety Appeal as deaths rise 9% in 2020 News
Keywords Employment Canada’s jobs market suffered the biggest setback in almost three years last month, shedding a massive 54,000 jobs overall — all full-time and concentrated in Ontario’s manufacturing and construction industries. The unemployment rate rose two notches to 7.3%, wiping out recent dips in the rate. U.S. employers added a modest 559k jobs in May Julian Beltrame Nearly 1.4 million Canadians are unemployed and some analysts predict the jobless rate could hit eight per cent next year as the economy continues to slow. September’s report showed the biggest one-month job loss since March 2009, in the midst of the worst recession in decades, and came amid persistent fears that Europe’s debt crisis, the weak U.S. recovery and slower Asian growth will hit Canada. With economic worries and stock market turmoil eroding consumer and business confidence, the pace of hiring is slowing and the prospects of a strong consumer spending rebound is diminishing. Companies nervous about the future are scaling back hiring intentions until they get more confident that demand for their products and services will grow. Asked about the report after the conclusion of G20 meetings in France, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said he was “disappointed with the numbers and concerned about them.” Harper and Finance Minister Jim Flaherty have stressed for months that jobs are the number one priority of the government, and have hinted new stimulus measures might be forthcoming if economic conditions worsened. Ken Lewenza, president of the Canadian Auto Workers union, said the October jobless report is “a clear sign of a faltering economy and worse yet to come.” “Canadian politicians must stop using the economic problems of other nations to justify inaction here at home,” said Lewenza, who represents Canada’s largest industrial union. The labour leader called on Harper to organize a national summit between, unions, business and government to come up with ideas to create jobs and grow the economy. In the wake of the unemployment report, the Canadian dollar fell sharply by nearly a cent on the news to 98.28 US cents in afternoon trading. Friday’s jobs report from Statistics Canada was even more disturbing in the details, as all the losses and more were in the full-time category and in the goods producing sector. In all 71,700 full-time jobs vanished during the month — Ontario alone shed 75,400 — as part-time employment rose slightly, making the headline number appear more palatable. Economists had expected a weak October after September’s surprising 61,000 pick-up, although that was somewhat inflated by returning education workers. But the consensus was for nothing worse than a moderate increase of 15,000. As it turned out, the October report showed the biggest decline since 2009, when 61,000 jobs were shed in March. However, the magnitude of the decline was nowhere near the 129,000 jobs lost in January 2009 and last month’s losses followed two years of gradual employment gains in Canada. Statistics Canada pointed out that employment is still up 237,000 in the last year, but the last four months has seen virtually no increase in employment overall. As well, last month was the first significant contraction in the labour market in almost two years, the agency said. “This is an extremely loud warning shot for the economy,” said Bank of Montreal economist Douglas Porter. “The pressing question now is whether this steep pullback represents a correction from that surprising strength (in first half of the year), or the start of a new dismal trend?” Scotiabank’s Derek Holt said he is more inclined to look past the “volatility” of the monthly headline numbers and look to the underlying factors. And those show a widespread weakness. He points out that hours worked dropped 0.2% in October, following a 0.3 decline the previous month despite the increase in employment, and that wage gains continue to slow to 1.3% over last year. “The headline volatility from one month to the next should be dismissed, but it’s the structural trends here that are disturbing,” he said. “The trend on job growth and the weakening trend on hours and wages, all combined they suggest that Canadian paycheques are softening as a cyclical driver for consumer spending.” A report from CIBC earlier this week pointed out that while the economy continues to replace the jobs lost during the recent recession, most have been of a lower paying variety, as suggested by the tepid gain in average wages. Holt added that gross domestic product is basically a measure of hours worked times productivity, so the September and October reductions suggest the economy could be near contraction levels for those two months. “No matter how you look at this report, it’s a negative report,” said TD Bank chief economist Craig Alexander. “I should say I don’t think it’s the start of a trend. I don’t think we’re going to get month after month of declining jobs, (but) basically job growth in Canada has stalled.” There was some good news for the North American economy as a whole Friday. The U.S. report, which came out shortly after Canada’s, found an additional 85,000 jobs south of the border in October, and added another 120,000 on upward revisions on the previous two months. That trimmed the unemployment rate to nine per cent from 9.1. Canada’s jobs downturn is the first significant economic indicator that appears to point to a downturn in the Canadian economy, which many had predicted following the upheaval in markets and plunge in consumer and business confidence surveys since August. Recently, the Bank of Canada warned it believed the Canadian economy was cooling quickly and would record only a 0.8% growth rate in the fourth quarter, of which October is the first month. It also said that Europe had entered a mild recession and that the U.S. was also close to falling back into a slump. The bulk of October’s labour market setback was in the goods producing industries, with manufacturing registering a second consecutive month of losses, this time shedding 48,000 workers. That brings employment in the key sector— hit hard by the slump in the United States and a high loonie — 2.7% lower in the last year. As well, the construction sector declined by 20,000, although the industry remains positive for the year as a whole. A softer housing market and a scaleback in commercial construction as well as the end of many infrastructure projects could explain the latest drop. Natural resources, with a pick-up of about 12,000, was the only industry to report a notable gain in employment in October. Regionally, half the provinces experienced a contraction in employment last month, but it was Ontario where the losses were the most notable. The country’s most populous province saw a decline of 75,400 full-time jobs. There was an increase of 36,600 part-time workers, making the overall losses a lesser shock at 38,700. Quebec and British Columbia also experienced notable job losses with a contraction of 13,300 and 10,800 respectively.

Google pulls plug on Android Things Google taps retail with NYC store Sony Mobile is considering using Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform in addition to Android, as it looks to move on from being dependent on a single platform, according to reports.With other Sony business units already having a relationship with Microsoft, and the mobile unit itself having offered Windows Mobile devices in its Sony Ericsson days, it is now considering Windows Phone “as part of our partnership with [Microsoft] on the broader Sony spectrum”, TechRadar reported.Pierre Perron, head of Sony Mobile Europe, said: “We enjoy very much a good collaboration with Google, we’ve been working with them for a long time and have a level of maturity with that discussion, that’s good. But at the same time, Google has a relationship with direct competitors.”Of course, a tie-up with Microsoft would not be without similar issues. The company has licensed Windows Phone to vendors including Samsung and HTC, and is even in the process of acquiring Nokia’s devices unit – potentially more of a threat to Sony than many other rivals.But Sony (Ericsson) does indeed have a track record of offering devices powered by different platforms. Prior to Android it worked with Symbian OS and Windows Mobile for its smartphones, although it is the Google platform that has driven growth in recent years.While the idea of moving toward a more diverse platform strategy makes sense in terms of reducing dependence on Google, the challenge that Sony would face with Windows Phone is the same that its rivals have found: without a compelling apps and content portfolio, the Microsoft OS will always compare poorly with Android and Apple’s iOS.But Microsoft and Nokia have been working to address this, and support from another top-tier manufacturer – particularly if it is a deeper commitment rather than a couple of trial devices – is likely to make the OS more appealing to developers and publishers.

At T-Mobile, we’re giving you more video, more for free, and power of choice. What’s not to love?”While Legere’s response to YouTube, and industry bodies alike, focused on the customer benefits of Binge On, it is unlikely that the issue will go away. The outspoken CEO did not directly address the fact that the service is seemingly also affecting the video of providers not signed up to the platform.Uptake and interestFor the first time since the launch of Binge On, Legere also provided some information on the service’s uptake. He said customers are now watching 12 per cent more video, with daily average viewership on one particular service spiking 66 per cent among customers not on high speed plans.Adding to previously the 24 announced partners at launch, including Netflix and HBO, are a number of other high profile partners, including PlayStation Vue and The History Channel. Legere said more than 50 providers have so far shown interest.US regulator Federal Communications Commission, which seemingly gave Binge On the all clear following its launch, is reportedly due to meet with T-Mobile US and other providers next week to discuss the matter.

DUBLIN, Ohio – Jack’s Place is where Justin Rose first got on the board in the United States, so it seems only fitting that the easygoing Englishman would use the Memorial to vault himself back into a crowded spotlight. The top shelf has been a busy stage of late, what with the twenty-something threesome of Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth and Rickie Fowler dominating the highlight reel with victories from TPC Sawgrass to San Francisco and beyond. While Rose hasn’t exactly been the forgotten man in all this, what with his victory at the Zurich Classic and a runner-up showing to Spieth at the Masters, in the uber-competitive world of professional golf a select few thrive on the concept of one-upmanship. Not that Rose would ever admit to such narcissistic underpinnings. He’s far too well-rounded for that. But beyond the easy smile and thoughtful answers dwells a competitor every bit as driven by the concept that “second sucks.” “Now I’m in a situation where I want to win every year,” said Rose, who carded his best round of the week (66) to move to 15-under 201 at Muirfield Village. “I’ve got that nice run going six years in a row [with victories]. Now there’s pressure to win every year, so you certainly don’t get complacent.” Since that win at the Memorial in 2010, Rose has recorded a victory each year on Tour including the 2013 U.S. Open. It’s a triumph that he links directly back to his breakthrough at Muirfield Village six years ago. “If you look at my career, to be honest with you, you could say it’s gone from strength to strength since getting the monkey off my back and winning here at the Memorial,” said Rose, who leads David Lingmerth (72) and Francesco Molinari (69) by three strokes. “I was definitely feeling the pressure for a number of years to notch my first PGA Tour victory, and it had become pretty elusive. As time ticks on, it becomes harder and harder.” The victory also began the legend of Rose’s ballstriking and explains a solid resume at Nicklaus’ central Ohio gem. Quite simply, he is the ultimate second-shot surgeon on the ultimate (outside of Augusta National, of course) second-shot golf course. Rose’s resume is littered with statements at ballstriking ballparks, from Congressional (2014 Quicken Loans National) and Cog Hill (2011 BMW Championship) to Merion (U.S. Open) he plays his best golf on layouts that reward calculated control from the fairway. For the week, Rose is first in approach shot distance to the pin, fourth in strokes gained-tee to green and has hit 30 of 42 greens in regulation. “Majestic,” swing coach Sean Foley said when asked to describe his man’s ballstriking the last few weeks. Rose didn’t make a birdie putt outside of 7 feet on Saturday and seemed to regain his momentum after a bogey at No. 9, his only miscue on Day 3, with a towering 5-wood that he called “risky” at the par-5 11th hole that set up a tap-in birdie to move to 15 under par and a field goal clear of the field. His form combined with his record at the Memorial, where he’s finished inside the top 10 five times and was runner-up in 2008, along with the assembled cast behind him gave Rose an air of invincibility when he calmly putted out for par at the demanding final hole Saturday afternoon. Combined, the top 10 players behind Rose heading into Sunday have 26 Tour titles – most of those belonging to Jim Furyk (17) who is alone in fourth place – and three majors, and he will be joined in the day’s final two-ball by Molinari, a European Tour staple playing his first full season on the PGA Tour. Furyk, who won this event in 2002, would be the most likely choice, but at 11 under par he would need some help from the front-runner and the weatherman on a golf course that has become increasingly more difficult as a rare dry week in Dublin has progressed. “It’s going to depend on the weather. I think it’s supposed to be more breezy tomorrow, supposed to come from the other direction,” Furyk said. “Justin is definitely in control at 15 under par. He’s got a lot of experience, obviously one of the best players in the world. He’ll kind of control what it’s going to take and a lot of the rest of us will have to chase him.” It’s a position that Rose has become exceedingly comfortable in since that first victory back in 2010.
