ASC reaches settlement with ex Rogers Gold president

Under the settlement agreement, Kirkham is to pay $25,000 to the ASC, including $5,000 in costs, and agreed not to trade securities, or act as a director and officer of any issuer, for seven years. He also admits that the OM used by Rogers Gold contained material omissions that could prevent a prospective investor from making an informed investment decision. Specifically, it says, that the OM failed to disclose the key terms of agreements between the company and various related companies; included a non-compliant technical report; and failed to disclose the involvement of a director who had prior run-ins with regulators. The deal also indicates that Kirkham was unaware of the inaccuracies in the OM and believed the document was compliant with securities laws. It says that he was largely uninvolved in the preparation of the disclosure, and that he relied extensively on the apparent expertise of, and submitted to the authority of, professionals hired by the firm to prepare the OMs. Moreover, it notes that he had no prior experience as a director or officer of a public company, and that he derived no financial benefit from his involvement with the firm — while he was paid $52,000 by the company, he also loaned it approximately $92,000, which is unlikely to be repaid. The Alberta Securities Commission (ASC) has settled with a former mining company executive over his responsibility for the company raising funds with deficient disclosure. The ASC announced that it has settled with former Rogers Gold Corp. president, Brian Kirkham, concerning allegations of illegal distributions and misrepresentations by the company in the offering memoranda (OM) used to sell securities.

Law Enforcement’s Use of Military Equipment Scrutinized After Ferguson Protests

first_img Stay Connected with the Daily Roundup. Sign up for our newsletter and get the best of the Beacon delivered every day to your inbox. Soon after images of battle-ready police officers emerged from Ferguson, Missouri, where protests erupted after a police officer shot and killed an unarmed teenager, critics began to decry a little known Department of Defense program that offers decommissioned military equipment to local law enforcement agencies.The defense department’s 1033 Program has been blamed for the “militarization” of police forces across the country, an opinion aided by images of Missouri officers looking more like soldiers than peace keepers. But Flathead County Sheriff Chuck Curry said the 1033 Program has enabled his department to acquire useful equipment it couldn’t otherwise afford, particularly a mine-resistant armored vehicle.“I’m somewhat offended by the headlines in the national media that says law enforcement is becoming militarized just because the military gave us a piece of equipment that offers our officers some protection,” Curry said. “We’re not militarizing the sheriff’s office because someone gave us a rig that protects our personnel.”Curry referred to a Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle, or MRAP, that the county sheriff’s department received in 2013. According to data obtained by the New York Times from the Defense Department, Flathead County is the only law enforcement agency in the state of Montana to receive a mine-resistant vehicle through the 1033 Program. Lincoln, Powell and Roosevelt counties have all received armored vehicles through the program.Curry said the sheriff’s office has two armored vehicles that it can use when the SWAT team is deployed. The newer vehicle was previously used in Iraq and Afghanistan. Curry said when the department applied for the vehicle it wasn’t interested in the fact that it was mine-resistant.“The bottom is mine-resistant but we don’t care about that, we just care that it’s bulletproof,” he said.The Kalispell Police Department also has an armored vehicle, called a BearCat, built by Lenco Armored Vehicles for domestic use in 2007. The vehicle cost $300,000 and weighs 26,000 pounds and features an armored body, bulletproof glass and puncture-resistant tires, according to Kalispell Police Chief Roger Nasset.Nasset said before the department got the vehicle, which was paid for through a private donation, the city’s SWAT team had no armored vehicle to protect itself during live-shooter scenarios.“It’s a tool and just because it looks like a piece of military equipment doesn’t mean it is military equipment,” Nasset said. “To send a SWAT team out with no armored vehicle is ludicrous.”Nasset said the vehicle is usually deployed anywhere from two to six times a year and on occasion has been sent to other communities, including Missoula, where the vehicle was actually shot at. Lincoln County Sheriff Roby Bowe said his department also received an armored vehicle last year but they have yet to use it.All three local law enforcement officials said the armored vehicles are used sparingly, but that it’s important to have them available when a dangerous situation arises.“We work for the public, not against it and this equipment is for their safety as much as it is our safety,” Nasset said.

Dietary trans fat linked to worse memory

first_imgEmail Share Share on Twitter Pinterest Higher consumption of dietary trans fatty acids (dTFA), commonly used in processed foods to improve taste, texture and durability, has been linked to worsened memory function in men 45 years old and younger, according to a University of California, San Diego School of Medicine study published online on June 17 in PLOS ONE.Researchers evaluated data from 1,018 men and women who were asked to complete a dietary survey and memory test involving word recall. On average, men aged 45 and younger recalled 86 words; however, for each additional gram of trans fats consumed daily, performance dropped by 0.76 words. This translates to an expected 12 fewer words recalled by young men with dTFA intake levels matching the highest observed in the study, compared to otherwise similar men consuming no trans fats.“Trans fats were most strongly linked to worse memory in men during their high productivity years,” said Beatrice A. Golomb, MD, PhD, lead author and professor of medicine at UC San Diego School of Medicine. “Trans fat consumption has previously shown adverse associations to behavior and mood–other pillars of brain function. However, to our knowledge a relation to memory or cognition had not been shown.”center_img LinkedIn After adjusting for age, exercise, education, ethnicity and mood, the link between higher dTFA and poorer memory was maintained in men 45 and younger.The study focused predominantly on men because of a small number of women in this age group. However, including women in the analysis did not change the finding, said Golomb. An association of dTFA to word memory was not observed in older populations. Golomb said this is likely due to dietary effects showing more clearly in younger adults. Insults and injuries to the brain accrue with age and add variability to memory scores that can swamp ability to detect diet effects.Trans fatty acids have been linked to negative effects on lipid profiles, metabolic function, insulin resistance, inflammation and cardiac and general health. In 2013, the United States Food and Drug Administration issued a preliminary determination that trans fats were no longer generally recognized as safe. According to the Centers for Disease Control, reducing dTFA consumption could prevent 10,000 to 20,000 heart attacks and 3,000 to 7,000 coronary heart disease deaths per year in the U.S.“As I tell patients, while trans fats increase the shelf life of foods, they reduce the shelf life of people,” said Golomb.

QPR v Brighton player ratings

first_imgAs always, the young midfielder showed bags of desire and was never afraid to have a shot at goal. His hard work set up a golden chance for substitute Idrissa Sylla late on. Massimo Luongo: 8 Built on his impressive display at Villa Park, pulling his side’s creative strings to set up a high proportion of their attacking moves as well as tracking back when necessary. Ravel Morrison: 5 Now and then Morrison looked good on the ball, but more frequently the game seemed to pass him by and it was no surprise when he was withdrawn after 65 minutes. Conor Washington: 6 At times Washington looked like a striker trying too hard to regain his goal touch but he was always alert, sniffing out loose balls and doing his utmost to bring team-mates into play. Missed a decent chance when he blasted over though. Matt Smith: 7 Embed from Getty Images The big centre-forward won his fair share of headers throughout, forcing one close-range save from David Stockdale before getting up to head Luke Freeman’s corner home and halve the deficit. Yeni Ngbakoto: 6 There were few opportunities for the Frenchman to shine after coming on to replace Robinson midway through the second half, although he did drag a half-chance wide in injury time. Luke Freeman 8 The effervescent midfielder gave Rangers fresh impetus as soon as he replaced Morrison, supplying a chance for Smith almost immediately and then setting up his goal 17 minutes from time. Another substitute, Sylla, missed a glorious late chance to equalise. QPR were undone by two second-half goals in the space of six minutes at Loftus Road. Here’s how we rated each Rangers player in the 2-1 defeat against Brighton. Alex Smithies: 6 Rarely under pressure, the Rangers goalkeeper was left completely exposed for Glenn Murray’s opener – but he was slow to get across as Sebastien Pocognoli’s free-kick made it 2-0. James Perch: 6 Starting as a wing-back, Perch got forward well and was also unlucky not to score when his volley was charged down just before half-time.AdChoices广告 Nedum Onuoha: 5 While the Rangers skipper produced timely challenges to foil Tomer Hemed and Glenn Murray, it was his error that allowed Murray to race clear and open the scoring early in the second half.Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images Grant Hall: 7 Apart from a late mistake that almost let Murray in again as Rangers chased a late equaliser, Hall was largely solid in his defensive role and brought the ball out well. Joel Lynch: 7 Worked hard to keep Brighton at bay in the first half and put in a vital tackle to deny the dangerous Anthony Knockaert. Jack Robinson: 5 Making his first start for four months – and it showed in an uneasy performance as he was repeatedly caught out of position. Ryan Manning: 7 Embed from Getty Images See also:QPR beaten as Brighton go topHolloway bemoans shoddy defending after QPR defeatHolloway hoped QPR might expose Brighton weakness  Ads by Revcontent Trending Articles Exclusive: People Are Becoming Rich Using This Profit System x No Senior in Local Area Should Go Without This £49 Smartwatch x Easy Way to Generate Extra Income x Last Nights Episode Left Viewers Speechless! x Chilling Photos Taken Moments Before It All Goes Wrong x This 70s Star Was Every Guy’s Dream Girl.

Man United one of midfielder’s ‘suitors’ ahead of summer – Price…

first_imgOne of the more infuriating transfers sagas of the 2019 summer was Manchester United’s alleged interest in Sergej Milinković-Savić. The reason for that was his supposed move to Old Trafford would only take place if Paul Pogba was sold to Real Madrid, and since that was never going to happen, it all felt a bit pointless.Still, it had to be done just in case Florentino Pérez somehow convinced Ed Woodward to let his prized asset go, but despite many claims of an agreement being reached, it never really felt like it was going to happen.It all went a bit quiet after that, but with stories of Pogba potentially leaving at the end of the season reemerging, it makes perfect sense for the Milinković-Savić links to rear their ugly head again, and they have.Tuttosport are the culprits, explaining the player is now worth €70m (which is quite the fall from the €100m Claudio Lotito was asking for as a minimum a few months ago), and clubs like Manchester United, Bayern Munich or Real Madrid are ‘suitors’ of his.However, with Lazio currently third in Serie A just one point behind Juventus and Inter, and the Serbian in good form (four goals and seven assists in 28 appearances), that price could rise come the end of the campaign once more.It’s certainly no surprise to see Manchester United keeping tabs on a player who could certainly help alleviate the problems caused by a Pogba departure, and if Woodward gets the £100m he wants for the Frenchman, he’ll have the money for Milinković-Savić.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameBuild a City, Trade With Your Neighbors, Play With Your FriendsForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoSmart Tech TrendOver 55?
