New Venture Financing Program Available to Nova Scotia Companies

first_imgN.S. SECURITIES COMMISSION–New Venture Financing ProgramAvailable to Nova Scotia Companies Companies in Nova Scotia have a new way to access venture capitaland become listed on the TSX Venture Exchange. The new CapitalPool Company Program was announced today, March 23, by the NovaScotia Securities Commission and the TSX Venture. It becomeseffective on Thursday, March 24. “We believe the introduction of the Capital Pool Company Programin Nova Scotia will help encourage small- and medium-sizebusinesses to investigate the public venture capital route,” saidLes O’Brien, chair of the Nova Scotia Securities Commission. “Itshould translate into exciting new opportunities for our localentrepreneurs.” The program will be of interest to entrepreneurs, angelinvestors, businesses, directors and officers who haveconsiderable experience with junior public companies. It allowsexperienced directors and officers to work with junior publiccompanies to form a capital pool company. The group wouldtypically raise between $200,000 and $1.9 million in an initialpublic offering. This amount is used to seek out an investmentopportunity in assets or a business with growth potential. Capital pool companies were the most popular method for joiningTSX Venture in 2004, with 87 having been launched. Linda Hohol, president of TSX Venture Exchange, said it is anexciting alternative for emerging companies. “The Capital PoolCompany Program enables private entrepreneurs to access thepublic venture market and provides local investors theopportunity to invest in early stage companies.” Since its inception, the program has helped more than 1,500companies across Canada raise money to build and enhance theirgrowth strategy. The program had its start in Western Canada inthe mid-1980s and moved to Ontario and Quebec in 2002. With the approval in Nova Scotia, the program now has roots fromcoast to coast. “This approval helps TSX Venture become a truenational venture capital marketplace. We certainly hope thatinvestors in Nova Scotia and across Atlantic Canada embraceemerging companies as they grow to be future large, nationalCanadian companies,” said Ms. Hohol. There are currently 17 Nova Scotia-based companies on the TSXVenture Exchange (one per cent of the total). These companieshave a combined market cap of $297.2 million.last_img read more

Renard Says He is Proud the Moroccan Flag Returns to the

Rabat – The coach of the national team Hervé Renard, said he is a “happy and satisfied man” after the qualification of the National Eleven at the World Cup-2018, and hailed the combativeness and selflessness of his players.“The combativeness and selflessness of the players have been key to qualifying and winning today against Ivory Coast,” said the national technician at the post-match press conference.“We maintained our philosophy of play. We did not want to change anything compared to our last games. It was necessary to continue to press and force the opposing team to lose the ball,” Hervé Renard said. “Thanks to our solidarity and our pressing, we managed to disrupt the Ivorian players,” he added, noting that the players have managed to play an “exceptional” match to win many duels.“In the pre-match talk, I told them (the players) that there was the 1980 generation (1986 World Cup), the 1990 generation (with the 1994 and 1998 World Cups), and that now it was up to them to enter history. They did it brilliantly, “he said.He also expressed his pride, as well as that of his players, that “the Moroccan flag returns to the World Cup”. “This is the fifth qualification, so Morocco is not a small football country”.“I am certainly a fulfilled man. The return will be exceptional. These are unforgettable moments. I am lucky to live them. I certainly have a good star. But I’m especially happy for the fans who made the trip, “he said.“Imagine for a moment that they made the trip for nothing. There are those who made sacrifices. They came with all their heart, from very far, “said Renard.Noting that this is the culmination of a long-term work, the national coach said that “when I took office, I had to change the state of mind of the Moroccan fans” since Morocco did not manage to “qualify for the CAN and the World Cup”.The Moroccan national team has secured its ticket to the 2018 World Cup in Russia, beating in Abidjan its Ivorian counterpart by 2 goals to 0, Saturday at Felix Houphouet Boigny Stadium. read more

The robbers were aggressive and the victim feared he would be pushed into the Liffey while handcuffed.Kearney’s previous convictions include assault, animal cruelty, robbery, theft, burglary, criminal damage and public order offences.Defence counsel, Luigi Rea BL, told Dublin Circuit Criminal Court that drink and tablets had been a feature of Kearney’s life and there was a place available for him in a 12-week residential treatment program.GuiltyKearney of Poddle Close, Crumlin, Dublin pleaded guilty to robbery, false imprisonment and theft in Dublin city centre on September 11, 2016.Judge Melanie Greally said Kearney had an “appalling record of offending” and that if the cycle was to be broken he would have to address his addiction issues. She adjourned sentencing until May to allow Kearney attend for residential treatment at Cuan Mhuire.Garda Brian McLoughlin told Elva Duffy BL, prosecuting, that at around 1.30am Kearney and his accomplice approached a man crossing the Millennium Bridge.One of the men had a radio and the second had handcuffs. They told the victim he was under arrest.This was witnessed by another man who the pair had just previously approached claiming to be undercover plain clothes gardaí and quoting a section of law. This first man had become suspicious that they were not gardaí and backed away from them.HandcuffedKearney and his accomplice quoted law again to the second man. They put handcuffs on him and told him he was being taken to Pearse Street Garda Station.They held the man up against the bridge and the victim feared he would be pushed into the Liffey while wearing the handcuffs. They searched him and took his phone, travel and bank cards.Garda McLoughlin said due to the aggression of the men the victim began to suspect they were not gardaí and asked for his belongings back. They returned his travel and bank cards and removed his handcuffs.They said he would get his phone back at the garda station but when he continued to ask for it the men began to handcuff him again. The man defended himself and was assisted by the witness. A woman filmed part of the incident on her mobile phone.Garda McLoughlin said he and a colleague arrived at this point and arrested Kearney. His accomplice fled the scene and has not been charged.Garda McLoughlin said the handcuffs were “quite realistic” and the victim believed they were real. He agreed with Rea that they were not of the same standard as garda handcuffs.Rea said Kearney had written a letter of apology to the victim in which he said he was ashamed of his actions and realised it was entirely inappropriate.The court will hear a full plea in mitigation on Kearney’s behalf from Rea on the next date.Read: Grandmother with 31 previous convictions admits role in credit card fraud gang By Nadya Labi Short URL Thursday 2 Mar 2017, 5:47 PM No Comments Man with 160 convictions accused of claiming to be undercover Garda to rob man on Dublin bridge Kearney’s previous convictions include assault, animal cruelty, robbery, theft, burglary, criminal damage and public order offences.

Saturation not a concern gambling proponents say

first_imgIn 2011, Washington’s 61 cardrooms employed 5,413 people and paid $22.8 million in local taxes, according to the Washington State Gambling Commission.Two months after the Oak Tree Casino opened, rumors continue to swirl about as many as three more cardrooms going live in Woodland this year, city officials said.Such developments, if they occurred, would give Woodland as many cardrooms as La Center — four.The prospect of eight cardrooms less than 10 miles apart — not to mention a proposed tribal casino off Interstate 5 in La Center — has some observers asking when more gambling outlets would result in dwindling returns for the cities they call home. “At some point, you reach a saturation point,” said Mark Stephan, a political science professor at Washington State University Vancouver.Cardroom officials are not worried about a saturation point. Not yet, at least. There are enough pieces of the multimillion-dollar pie to go around, they said.“(I)n general economic terms, I don’t think gaming is any different than any other industry,” said John Bockmier, a Vancouver-based consultant for La Center’s four cardrooms, which brought in $31.3 million in gross receipts in the fiscal year ending in June 2011. “There is competition between other like businesses for discretionary dollars.”Talks of more cardrooms in and around Clark County run contrary to the statewide trend.In 2011, Washington’s 61 cardrooms employed 5,413 employees and paid $22.8 million in local taxes, according to the Washington State Gambling Commission. Those numbers were far below the 2005 peak, when 97 cardrooms employed 6,972 workers and paid $32 million in local taxes.last_img read more

AL expels Noakhali leader Ruhul for gang rape

first_imgRuhul AminLocal Awami League leader Ruhul Amin has been expelled from the ruling party for his alleged involvement in the gang rape of a woman at Char Bagya village in Subarnachar upazila of Noakhali, reports UNB.Ruhul was the party’s upazila unit publicity affairs secretary and a former union council member. The decision to expel him was taken at an emergency meeting on Friday night, said AL’s Subarnachar Upazila unit president Omar Faruk.It was alleged that Amin’s followers gang-raped a woman at his behest on the night of the general election on 30 December. Police have arrested seven people, including Ruhul.The victim’s husband said a group of men had stormed their house in the early hours of Monday and tied up all the family members except his wife. They took her outside at gunpoint and raped her in turns for voting for BNP’s electoral symbol ‘sheaf of paddy’.The men also threatened to kill them if they disclosed the incident to anyone, he said.The victim was hospitalised the next day with the help of neighbours. A case was later filed against nine people over the incident.last_img read more

ProteinNanoparticle Material Mimics Human Brain Tissue

first_imgA composite material consisting of a horse protein and metallic nanoparticles displays magnetic properties very similar to those of human brain tissue, scientists have found. The work, published in the June 20 online edition of Physical Review B, may help lead to a more thorough understanding of the magnetic behavior of brain tissue and other complex natural materials. Studying the magnetism of many natural substances, such as rocks, soils, and biological materials, can be difficult because they tend to be a mix of several magnetic components. This means that valuable structural and functional information, which can be obtained from a material’s magnetic properties, is often left undiscovered.“It can be very difficult to separate the different components to study them individually,” said the study’s lead scientist, geophysicist Ann Hirt, to Hirt is a researcher at the Institute of Geophysics in Zurich, Switzerland. “Often, the use of several analysis methods is necessary and, even then, definite conclusions are seldom. Finding and investigating model materials may help remedy this problem.”As a first step, Hirt and her team identified the different components in the brain that produce magnetic signals. They used various magnetic methods, which are normally used to identify magnetic minerals in rocks. They found that the brain tissue, in which the other components are embedded, contributes the strongest magnetic signal, followed by iron in the blood of the brain. Next is ferritin, an iron-carrying protein found in nanoparticle form. Recently, a fourth component was discovered, but its identity has eluded scientists. It is either the iron-oxygen compound magnetite or a very similar compound, maghemite — or perhaps even a blend of the two. Magnetite and maghemite have such similar magnetic properties that distinguishing between them is very difficult.“Although the signal from the tissue itself was very strong, we could easily subtract it from the total magnetization,” said Franziska Brem, another Institute of Geophysics scientist geophysicist on the team. “The remaining signal appeared to be a combination of the signals from ferritin and magnetite.”To confirm this, the group measured the magnetic properties of a model system for which they knew the exact content and that they could study with certainty: a mixture of horse-spleen ferritin and protein-coated magnetite nanoparticles. The results show a striking similarity to the measurements for actual brain tissue.“Based on these measurements, we can assume that the ferritin and magnetite/maghemite behavior in brain tissue is very close to that of our model material,” Brem said.By Laura Mgrdichian, Copyright 2006 Researchers use magnetically actuated microrobots to deliver stem cells to tissue targets Explore furthercenter_img Citation: Protein-Nanoparticle Material Mimics Human Brain Tissue (2006, July 21) retrieved 18 August 2019 from This document is subject to copyright.

Support regional tourism ATEC to NSW govt

first_imgThe Australian Tourism Export Council (ATEC) is calling on the newly elected NSW Government to make promoting regional tourism a priority.ATEC managing director Felicia Mariani today welcomed the new government to office, saying ATEC’s regional NSW members were hoping to “see a renewed focus on driving visitors to regional areas across the state”.“Creating new, high quality tourism experiences in regional NSW is critical to ensuring both international and local tourists are enticed to look further than our capital cities and spread the tourism dollar across the state,” Ms Mariani said.In its plan for NSW  tourism the new government promised $5 million in funding to regional tourism operators during the election campaign, a move Ms Mariani welcomed but has said “must be tied to specific regional outcomes”.“We are yet to see detail on how the Government will manage this process or the criteria for assessment and allocation of funds.“ATEC believes any funding needs to support broader regional tourism plans that identify key local products and experiences that will appeal to consumers and increase visitation to the regions.“The Government has prudently required these funds be applied to creating and developing new tourism experiences, rather than being used on salaries or advertising campaigns, but ATEC believes it is imperative this funding contributes to achieving long-term, sustainable outcomes for our regional tourism operators and their communities.”Within the NSW Government’s plan for NSW tourism are moves to establish a Visitor Economy Taskforce by 2020 and to create “an independent authority to sell NSW” in Destination NSW funded with $40 million.According to the NSW Government, tourism to the state creates 162,500 jobs and accounts for 3.9 percent of gross state product which is a contribution of $13.9 billion to the state economy.
