Sri Lanka has over the years been at the centre of the human rights debate, often being accused of violating human rights.However now the country is set to be a base for human rights monitoring with one of the world’s leading human rights groups establishing its regional office in Colombo. The Sunday Leader reported that Amnesty International’s South Asia team  will look to operate out of a regional office in Colombo. Amnesty International is a London-based non-governmental organisation focused on human rights. (Colombo Gazette) Earlier this year Amnesty International appointed Biraj Patnaik as the new Regional Director for South Asia.The appointment was seen as deepening Amnesty International’s commitment to the world’s most populous region, moving closer to the ground where human rights abuses are taking place in order to challenge them more effectively. It is also learnt that the Regional Director of Amnesty International is recruiting new staff to be part of the South Asia team. read more

by The Associated Press Posted Nov 3, 2014 3:35 pm MDT NEW YORK, N.Y. – Nik Wallenda’s high-wire act in Chicago boosted Discovery Channel’s audience on Sunday.But the Nielsen ratings company says viewer interest in his lofty feats fell far short of his “Skywire” stunt over the Grand Canyon last year.Wallenda’s Chicago walks aired live Sunday across the U.S.His first walk between skyscrapers was from 8:35 to 8:42 p.m. Eastern and attracted 5.8 million viewers. His blindfolded walk from 9:01 to 9:03 p.m. Eastern delivered 6.7 million viewers. Those events and the 13-minute break in between were seen by an average of 5.8 million viewers.By contrast, 13 million people watched his Grand Canyon walk in June 2013. An average of nearly 10.7 million watched the 23-minute walk and stayed through the end of the telecast.

Sprint is introducing an “all-in” pricing plan, meaning a single, $80-a-month price that includes both a smartphone and a service plan for voice, text and unlimited data. (AP Photo/Lisa Poole, File) Fans of Lifetime’s melodramatic movies can now see them for $4 a month — without subscribing to cable.Lifetime’s online video service is the latest move by an entertainment company to bypass the traditional cable bundle, which easily tops $70 a month. For example, HBO has made its shows and movies available online for $15 a month to people who don’t pay for cable, while Showtime has an $11-a-month service debuting this month. CBS and Nickelodeon also have Internet offerings that don’t require a cable subscription.Subscribers to Lifetime’s service won’t get the regular cable channel, which has ads and is available on many cable and satellite lineups. Rather, the Lifetime Movie Club service will let viewers watch a rotating pool of movies, about 30 at a time, from Lifetime’s library of more than 300 films. They will be shown without commercials. The channel’s reality shows and scripted TV series won’t be available.Lifetime has long been known for its movies about stalkers, affairs gone bad and thrillers based on juicy headlines. It has been trying to appeal to younger audiences with such movies as “Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B.” It also has reality shows like “Little Women: LA” and the dance show “Bring It.”“Lifetime movies definitely have a long history but they’ve changed over the years. Some of our biggest events on Lifetime are the movies,” said Dan Suratt, executive vice-president for digital at A+E Networks, which owns Lifetime as well as the History channel and A+E.While other online video services such as Dish Network’s Sling TV are aimed at people who don’t subscribe to cable, Suratt said he expects the movie app to be “entirely complementary” to Lifetime’s TV channel.Like many channels, Lifetime’s primetime viewership has declined this year, according to Nielsen.The new Lifetime Movie Club service will work on iPhones and iPads, with other devices coming this fall.— Tali Arbel, AP Technology Writer___Sprint is introducing an “all-in” pricing plan, meaning a single, $80-a-month price that includes both a smartphone and a service plan for voice, text and unlimited data.The new plan, though billed as simpler, won’t have many benefits for consumers. Prices for a Samsung Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9 won’t change, as it had been $20 for the phone and $60 for the service plan. An iPhone 6 plan will cost $10 a month more as Sprint gets rid of a promotion. These three phones are the only ones eligible, as they are among the most popular.With the new pricing, Sprint is going back to how all wireless plans used to be sold. Until recently, phone companies routinely offered subsidies on phones in exchange for two-year contracts and made up for that in higher monthly fees. In the name of transparency, T-Mobile lowered the monthly service fees two years ago and started charging for the phone separately. AT&T, Verizon and Sprint followed on some of its plans.Now, Sprint is returning to the old ways in combining the two charges.There’s one big difference: Sprint is leasing the phone. Customers have to turn it in when upgrading or pay extra to keep it. With subsidies, customers own the phones outright and have no obligations beyond the two-year contract. That means a customer can resell the phone when upgrading or cancelling service.In a statement, T-Mobile described the move as a “pushback against a trend that wireless users have overwhelmingly supported.” T-Mobile says separating the charges gives consumers more information to make better choices.Sprint will still sell phones outright, though at higher monthly prices. Those options aren’t as prominent on Sprint’s website.Sprint’s $80-a-month price doesn’t include taxes and surcharges, including a one-time $36 activation fee.— Anick Jesdanun, AP Technology Writer In Tech: Lifetime makes movies available online, Sprint’s new price plans brings back the old read more

“WHO [The World Health Organization] remains committed to supporting the ongoing response provided by the Ministry of Health and other health partners,” said Ala Alwan, WHO Regional Director for the Eastern Mediterranean, in a news release Wednesday. “However, additional funds are needed to provide the full scale of health services to the 2.7 million people affected by the Mosul operation.” To fully support the health needs resulting from the Mosul operation, WHO requires a total of $65 million of which $14 million, or 21 per cent, has been received. Many hospitals in Mosul have suffered extensive damage and are no longer able to provide health services. Trauma casualty rates remain high near frontline areas, with many trauma cases requiring referral from Mosul to Erbil in northern Iraq. Three field hospitals, with a capacity of 40–50 beds, will soon be established to support access to trauma care to the west and south of Mosul. These hospitals will fill a critical gap, as trauma patients are currently transported to referral hospitals in Erbil, a one- to two-hour drive away. From 17 October 2016 to 18 January 2017, 1610 wounded civilians were sent to Erbil’s two main hospitals. read more

Sophomore H-back Dontre Wilson (2) catches a touchdown pass during a game against Cincinnati on Sept. 27 at Ohio Stadium. OSU won, 50-28.Credit: Chelsea Spears / Multimedia editorAfter a slow start to the season, the Ohio State offense is starting to get up to speed.As the Buckeyes head into Big Ten play Saturday, they are trying to build on a record-setting performance from their game against Cincinnati in which they accumulated 710 yards of total offense and totaled 45 first downs.The offensive output did not come as a surprise to redshirt-sophomore offensive lineman Pat Elflein, who said even after the Virginia Tech game in which OSU allowed seven sacks, the offensive line has always believed in its abilities.“We never really lacked confidence. That’s the standard of how the offensive line at Ohio State plays and we played to that standard on Saturday and we are going to keep playing to that standard,” Elflein said. “The standard was set last year, and that’s how we have to play.”Last season, the Buckeyes ranked fifth in the country running the football as they averaged 308.6 yards per game on the ground. OSU currently ranks 23rd in rush yards per game with 241.5 yards per game.Contributing to the bulk of OSU’s yards on the ground against Cincinnati was sophomore running back Ezekiel Elliott, who made his presence felt against the Bearcats as he rushed for a career-high 182 yards on 28 carries.Co-offensive coordinator and offensive line coach Ed Warinner said Monday he expects Elliott to continue his play against the Maryland defense on Saturday.“He’s playing with very low pad level and so he plays with great energy. He’s explosive. And he finishes runs with great pad level,” Warinner said. “And he doesn’t want to make direct contact. Ezekiel is playing great right now. We just have to keep him going.”Despite only accumulating an average of 195.3 rushing yards per game in its first three games, the Buckeye offense amassed 380 yards rushing against the Bearcats to go along with 330 yards passing.Coach Urban Meyer said he would like to see more steadiness on offense.“What I think is going on best is the balance right now. When you start looking up at the scoreboard and you see 250 or 300 (yards) each that’s a good sign,” Meyer said Wednesday. “The last two years have been kind of run-dominated and to win those big games you can’t be 220 run and 68 pass. You’re going to lose that game.”The passing efficiency of redshirt-freshman J.T. Barrett is something that has greatly contributed to the offensive surge for OSU. Barrett became the first Buckeye quarterback since Troy Smith in 2005 to account for back-to-back 300 yard passing games.Senior tight end Jeff Heuerman said that he never has any doubt that Barrett will perform.“That’s just how he is. He is a great leader,” Heuerman said Wednesday. “He is super poised, and it doesn’t surprise me how he handles his business.”Barrett, who has been nicknamed by some in the program as “the distributor,” has done just that, as seven offensive players have caught five or more passes on the season.One of those players is sophomore H-back Dontre Wilson, who led OSU in receptions with six against Cincinnati and has earned high praise from Meyer.“He is so little, and when you are in a balanced offense, you gotta be able to block and do all of the things,” Meyer said. “He was a little bit of a token player last year. But he has gained 15 pounds, he is stronger and is much more suitable. Also, he is the kind of guy that we wanted to run him a little bit.”Wilson has become a much more important part of OSU’s offense as he has totaled 11 receptions and nine carries for a total of 238 yards and a touchdown in the first four games of the season. His 11 catches are good for second on the team behind only redshirt-sophomore wide receiver Michael Thomas (13).His pass catching is something that Meyer said Wilson has been working on since the offseason.“He has got pretty good hands,” Meyer said. “He is a little bit of a body catcher, but he has really worked hard on it. I like where he is heading.”Despite all of its playmakers, Meyer said his Buckeye offense will need to continue to be efficient to compete against Maryland’s defense.“Athletically they are really good. They do enough change up where there (are) two different looks you have to prepare for in the secondary,” he said. “They are the most athletic defense we have faced so far this year.”The Buckeyes are set to take on Maryland on Saturday at Byrd Stadium in College Park, Md. Kickoff is scheduled for noon. read more

first_imgThe Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time has one of the most highly praised soundtracks in all of gaming. This is even more impressive considering how the music for it was created using the Nintendo 64’s limited audio technology. The greatness of the game’s music surpassed hardware limitations, but now, we’ll finally get to hear this classic soundtrack as it was always meant to be experienced.Our friends over at iam8bit have partnered with Materia Collective to bring us The Hero of Time. Materia Collective will be handling the digital distribution of the soundtrack while iam8bit is in charge of releasing the vinyl edition. This recording will be pressed into a 180-gram heavyweight colored vinyl with a die cut Ocarina window, gold foil triforce stamping, and gatefold vista artwork.Aside from coming in a spiffy looking vinyl record, what makes this soundtrack special is that it will be recorded by the 64-piece Slovak National Symphony Orchestra. This, of course, will allow the soundtrack of Ocarina of Time to come alive in a way rarely heard before. There have been artists (such as Video Games Live) that have played select pieces from this soundtrack live with an orchestra, but this is the first time the entire thing can be heard this way.This record will be recorded live in January in Bratislava, Slovakia. After that, it will be mastered and prepared for vinyl to hit a release date sometime in the second quarter of 2017. The record will cost $40, but no price has been given for the digital edition at this time. You can pre-order now from iam8bit’s website. You can check out some samples of this soundtrack over on Materia Collective’s SoundCloud page.last_img read more

first_imgStay on target Over the summer, Bandai Namco held a closed beta for the upcoming Dragon Ball FighterZ. The brief beta gave players a good taste of the game’s over-the-top antics. I thought it was fantastic. We were promised an open beta in January, and sure enough, we’re getting it. Today, Bandai Namco announced an open beta for January 14. On top of that, it also released a brand-new trailer featuring three combatants from the Dragon Ball Super anime series.As reported by Gamespot, the open beta will be available for players on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Though the beta is open to all, it is presumably for those who are subscribed to either Xbox Live or PlayStation Plus. The beta is set to begin at 12am PST / 3AM EST / 9 AM CET. It will end on January 16 at those same times. Those who pre-order the game either physically or digitally can participate in the open beta a full 24 hours early on January 13 at the aforementioned times.In addition to the open beta news, Bandai Namco has also released a new trailer spotlighting three new fighters. These include Goku Black, Hit, and Beerus. If you’re not familiar with those names, that’s because they are all characters from Dragon Ball Super. Up until now, the roster for Dragon Ball FighterZ mainly consisted of classic characters from Dragon Ball Z. Dragon Ball Super characters were inevitable, but it is somewhat surprising it took this long for any to be announced. Their inclusion shows the game isn’t only for fans who’ve been with the franchise for decades.Dragon Ball FighterZ is due to release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on January 26. The game’s season pass will add six new characters post-launch. Pre-ordering any edition of the game will unlock Super Saiyan Blue Goku and Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta early.

first_imgBarcelona’s former technical secretary, Robert Fernandez, spoke in detail about Ousmane Dembele being tardy and his performance.The talk of the day for FC Barcelona was Ousmane Dembele without question, even Robert Fernandez had something to say about the French ‘Bad Boy’ who is tardy and has put the club upside down with his antics.But right after he makes a mistake that is related to poor discipline, he soon comes back and makes amends with a very important goal or assists that keeps helping Barcelona get points.With his goal against Tottenham this Tuesday, Ousmane Dembele has now produced 9 goals in his last 9 matches for Barcelona between scoring and assisting his teammates.This level of performance is already putting him on a similar level to Neymar at the club, the only problem is his distracted mind. On a psychological level, the real issue here is that Ousmane Dembele seems to suffer from ADHD and one of his only ways to control it is to play video games.The main obstacle that gets in the way of him developing the incredible talent he has, is that the French lad doesn’t seem to have his sleeping hours under control because he looks like he simply can’t go to sleep.4 GOLES ⚽⚽⚽⚽5 ASISTENCIAS 🅰🅰🅰🅰🅰¡@Dembouz ha participado en 9 goles en sus últimos 9 partidos con el @FCBarcelona_es en todas las competiciones! 🔥#UCL pic.twitter.com/rkkZSw3Q1p— LaLiga (@LaLiga) December 11, 2018The club knew about this problem when they first signed him from Borussia Dortmund, but they knew that his level of talent was worth all the trouble and the results are showing that FC Barcelona was right about him.The only problem right now does seem to be that many of the players could not appreciate the special treatment that Dembele is getting, but most of them will end up falling in line if he is the one who gets them all the trophies by the end of the season.Because the type of goal that he scored against Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday, is within reach of very few football players in the world.Just by looking at the effort of recovering the ball the way Dembele did, and then going after two defenders to deliver that insane finish as he dribbled on both of them is both insane and beautiful to watch.This goal is already being labeled as one of the best from this last group stage fixture in the Champions League, Ousmane Dembele really is everything that people were getting him hyped for and maybe even more.Kylian Mbappé’s assessment of deeming Ousmane Dembele the most talented young player in the world might just be true.David Villa, FC BarcelonaTop 10 players who played for both Barcelona and Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to talk about the best players who represented both Barcelona and Valencia, prior to their La Liga encounter at Camp Nou this evening.¡ESPECTACULAR! 🤩Tremenda escapada de Dembelé, deja tendido a dos rivales del Tottenham y la firma 🖊️#ChampionsxESPN 🏆 pic.twitter.com/p4ofzzMGRx— Fuera de Juego (@ESPN_FDJ) December 11, 2018Former Barcelona secretary Robert Fernandez, was quoted by Marca when he explained the problems Dembele has.“The press is having a field day with this issue of him falling asleep. But this is not such a bad thing from a certain perspective,” said Fernandez during the interview.“I have seen cases of players who fell asleep in the past. What I wonder is how is it that this news is coming out so quickly? I’m not saying there is a campaign against the club, but I do think that we need to protect this player.”“Although it may be true that he has made mistakes in a number of situations, it is also true that we need to defend him and try to carry him in a way that can benefit him better. This lad is one of the club’s greatest assets.”“We have to defend him in a way that we have also defended other players in the past, both at FC Barcelona and other clubs in the world. There have always been players who fall asleep.”“We are talking about a very young player here, one who makes mistakes. All we need to do is keep him in a short leash with these kinds of details.”“We already knew about his problem with falling asleep, but we decided to bring him due to his incredible quality as a player.”“This is a problem that can be fixed. If he was 27 when we signed him, we obviously wouldn’t have brought him. But he is only 21 and I think Barcelona has what it takes to help him improve,” he concluded.¡@Dembouz pone el TURBO! 😎🔥🏎 pic.twitter.com/8YVHnjb1Hx— LaLiga (@LaLiga) December 12, 2018How long do you think Barcelona will take to help Ousmane Dembele fix his problems with sleep?

first_imgA state audit has found that Clark County improperly charged some of its departments for insurance coverage during 2011-12, and by doing so, shifted general government costs onto accounts designated for maintaining roads and processing building permits.Fixing the problem could cost the county’s already strapped general fund more than $700,000 annually, if the costs are reapportioned according to the auditor’s calculations.The county has responded that while it believes it can improve the documentation of such charges, it’s not sure it wrongly charged its departments.The disagreement, and its ramifications, will likely be discussed as the county moves forward with its yearly and quarterly budget discussions.The audit report was released Monday by the state auditor’s office. It concludes the county incorrectly charged about $1.8 million to the county road fund and the county’s building and permit fund.Also in the report, the state auditor’s office recommends the county take a look at how it bases charges for insurance, document its methodology and repay the funds that it says overcharged.last_img read more

first_imgParcel delivery organisation Hermes has agreed a collective bargaining agreement with the trade union GMB for its 15,000 self-employed couriers, giving them the option to earn holiday pay and have a guaranteed rate of pay.The agreement, which has been designed to support the rights of self-employed individuals providing courier services to Hermes, enables workers to choose a new ‘self-employed plus’ status.This allows them to receive benefits such as holiday pay, prorated up to 28 days, and an individually negotiated rate of pay; couriers will be able to earn at least £8.55 an hour over the year. These couriers will also be represented by GMB.Martijn de Lange, chief executive officer, UK at Hermes, said: “This new option allows couriers to retain the flexibility of self-employment we know is so important to them and gives them the certainty of guaranteed levels of earning, the security of holiday pay and a strong voice.“We’re proud to be leading the way with this pioneering development, which we hope will encourage other [organisations] to reflect on the employment models they use.“We have listened to our couriers and are wholeheartedly committed to offering innovative ways of working to meet peoples’ differing needs.”The ‘self-employed plus’ status will operate on an opt-in basis, and couriers who wish to remain in their current form of self-employment can do so.Tim Roache, general secretary at GMB, added: “Hermes is leading the way; looking after the people who work for [the organisation] on the ground, day in, day out, is not only good for business, but the right thing to do.“As a result of our groundbreaking agreement, couriers will have a real voice in their workplace as well as the right to holiday pay and guaranteed pay, something GMB has long been campaigning for on behalf of our members.“Full credit to Hermes. [It is] showing that the gig economy doesn’t have to be an exploitative economy and we look forward to working with [the organisation] through this groundbreaking agreement.

first_imgAkshardham Temple.TwitterThe Gujarat Anti-Terrorism Squad on Friday arrested what it claimed to be a key conspirator in the 2002 Akshardham Temple attack from Anantnag in Jammu and Kashmir.Minister of State for Home Pradeepsinh Jadeja said that Mohammad Yasin Butt, who is believed to be an operative of terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba, had escaped to Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir (PoK) after the temple attack.He was arrested following an intelligence alert that he had returned to Kashmir and was working at a timber warehouse in Anantnag.As many as 33 persons, including a National Security Guard (NSG) commando, were killed when two terrorists started indiscriminate firing inside the sprawling Akshardham Temple Complex located just a stone’s throw from the official residence of the Chief Minister in Gandhinagar on September 24, 2002.The assailants were gunned down by the commandos of the National Security Guard.ATS officials said Butt played a vital role in the conspiracy to attack the temple complex and supplied arms and ammunition, including AK 47 rifles, to the assailants who had travelled to Ahmedabad by a train from Uttar Pradesh.The ATS team brought Butt to Ahmedabad on Friday evening after obtaining a transit remand from a court in Jammu and Kashmir.In May 2014, the Supreme Court had acquitted six persons convicted earlier in the case and three of them were facing a death sentence.last_img read more

first_imgHolbox, Q.R. —  The current Holbox administration says that its predecessor granted hundreds of building permits without any order or building plan, something that led to the infrastructure collapse in August of last year.While permits for construction work and the submission of Environmental Impact Manifestations for projects in Holbox continue, Emilio Jiménez Ancona, municipal president of Lázaro Cárdenas, says that due to the construction permits granted during the last administration, in two years the number of rooms in the so-called Isla Chica rose from 800 to 1,700.He says that his predecessor granted nearly 300 building permits without any development plan or order.“What we want is to put order in the growth of Isla Chica which is currently disorganized, because there is no development plan for the area,” said the municipal head.“Of the projects authorized by the last administration, there are still many to be executed. Currently there are some 70 projects with others are under review … Profepa has closed down 33 of those projects,” said Emilio Jiménez Ancona.He said that so far during his administration, they have authorized about 10 construction permits, which add to the 300 granted by his predecessor.“There is an excessive growth in Isla Chica that led to the collapse in August of 2017 because there is no growth limit,” he explained.The island of Holbox is located within a Protected Natural Area and is divided into two zones. Isla Chica where the population center is, and Isla Grande, the area that does not have buildings.There is an increasing demand for consistency since the increase of rooms brings with it a cascade of needs in basic public services such as the collection of garbage, drinking water, drainage and electricity.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgAn Asiana Airlines crew member has finally spoken out about the weekend’s 777 crash, explaining she knew moments before the collision that something was wrong.On Saturday, the Boeing plane flying from Seoul to San Francisco crash landed and ended up in flames after coming short of the runway and landing in a rocky area of the water’s edge, News.com.au reported.At a press conference, the 20-year veteran and Flight 214 cabin manager Lee Yoon-hye said something felt off right before touchdown, as though the plane were attempting to take off instead of land.“I was thinking, ‘What’s happening?’ and then I felt a bang,” she said.“That bang felt harder than a normal landing.”She said the moment it happened it was a “very big shock”, but said the bigger shock came when the plane began to sway “to the right and to the left”.In charge of getting passengers off the plane, Ms Lee said her body went into ‘auto’ mode, putting her own safety aside to rescue everyone on board and even ensuring she was the last one to leave the burning aircraft.According to Ms Lee, evacuation was rough even before the fire, with two cabin crew members trapped under evacuation slides, which had inflated inside the cabin, instead of outside.Other crew members used axes to deflate the slides, which appeared to be strangling one of the trapped flight attendants.Utilising other slides, the cabin manager said staff were focused on getting as many passengers down as possible, even sliding down with terrified travellers.Meanwhile, Ms Lee said she was mostly working on putting out the growing fire, and didn’t realise how hurt she was until being treated at San Francisco hospital.”I was only thinking that I should put it out quickly. I didn’t have time to feel that this fire was going to hurt me,” she said.Called in to help assist with the aircraft fire, San Francisco fire chief Joanne Hayes-White described Ms Lee’s actions as heroic.“She wanted to make sure that everyone was off,” the fire chief explained.Investigations into the crash are underway, although Asiana Airlines boss Yoon Young-doo has already ruled out aircraft mechanical issues and speculations the accident may have been cause by inexperienced pilots.An Asiana spokesperson has confirmed that one of the pilots was on his first flight to San Francisco, however, he had over 9,793 hours of flying experience and was accompanied by a co-pilot with 12,387 hours of flying experience.Source = ETB News: N.J.

According to the Wall Street Journal, S&P is preparing to resume talks with the DoJ in an effort to settle a $5 billion lawsuit filed by the government in February 2013.Citing sources close to the suit, the Journal reported that S&P is looking to negotiate a deal that could range from several hundred million to $1 billion. S&P is looking to resolve the charges leveled by DoJ that the company, an arm of McGraw-Hill Financial Inc., inflated ratings for mortgage bonds before the Wall Street meltdown in 2008. This lapse in standards, the suit claims, was an attempt to increase fees from insurers that ended up costing investors billions.The suit alleges that S&P “knowingly and with the intent to defraud, devised, participated in, and executed a scheme to defraud investors” in collateralized debt obligations and securities backed by residential mortgages between September 2004 and October 2007.The suit also claims that S&P “falsely represented that its credit ratings of RMBS and CDO tranches were objective, independent, uninfluenced by any conflicts of interest that might compromise S&P’s analytical judgment.”According to the Journal, the lawsuit is the offshoot of an investigation by the federal government that dates back to at least 2010.While no one at DoJ nor S&P has spoken on the record about the case recently, S&P did in the wake of the filing call the suit “entirely without factual or legal merit.”Nevertheless, the company announced in 2013 that it had expected the suit, adding that it felt it was being unfairly punished by the government for not being able to foresee the coming financial crisis. According to a Reuters report at the time, S&P said its actions were “motivated by commercial considerations.”While the expected S&P offer falls shy of what the DoJ is seeking, the Wall Street Journal reported that the ratings firm wants the matter over with, without having to admit to wrongdoing. From the beginning, S&P officials shaken by the government’s urging that the company admit wrongdoing have bristled at the idea that being forced to admit such a thing could leave the firm open other lawsuits by investors.S&P also is contending with several state-level lawsuits over its actions and conduct during the financial crisis and is, according to the Journal, evaluating its strategies for settling these suits. in Daily Dose, Government, Headlines, News, Secondary Marketlast_img read more
