She was joined by other notable tennis pros including Madison Keys, and Coco Vandeweghe. “I’m so excited I couldn’t sleep for the last two days!” Azarenka said before everyone picked up their racquets. “It’s such a beautiful hospital,” she added, talking about her visits to the facility. Why hold court at the club tucked behind the Malibu Country Mart? “It’s so cozy. It feels like home,” Azarenka said. The Kogi truck drove in around noon to the delight of players and spectators.The fellas took a lot of ribbing, especially Fabrizio Sestini, who was given the moniker “Male Gigolo” by one of the tennis pros. Amateur player Maroon 5 guitarist James Valentine showed up Saturday morning ready to play even though the band played in Mexico the night before. What brought him out to Malibu before noon the day after a gig? “Coco invited me,” he said with a grin.

News / Hyundai announces plan to recruit ex-Hanjin staff and seafarers

first_imgBy Gavin van Marle 11/01/2017 South Korea’s remaining deepsea container shipping line, Hyundai Merchant Marine (HMM), today announced a recruitment drive of ex-Hanjin staff, laid off since the carrier’s bankruptcy.HMM chief executive Chang Keun Yoo said “We [want to] acquire the best shipping workforce via one-to-one interviews. We will fully support Hanjin’s workforce to help them quickly adapt and adjust into HMM’s corporate culture and come into their own.”The company said it wanted to initially hire 131 former members of Hanjin’s workforce, “including onshore, offshore and overseas staff and ship managers”.The number will then grow by another 41 next month to include more offshore staff and has longer-term plans to hire between 40 and 50 additional ex-Hanjin seafarers and officers to fulfil its fleet expansion plans, which include acquiring additional vessels and adding its first ultra-large container vessels (ULCVs) to its fleet.This will bring the total number of rehired ex-Hanjin staff up to around 220, but it is relative drop in the ocean considering the number of people who lost their jobs in what is fast becoming the biggest shipping bankruptcy in history. According to Hanjin, it employed around 5,000 staff worldwide, managed from four regional centres in the US, Europe and Asia.last_img read more

Ex UBS trader pleads not guilty in alleged $2 billion fraud

DoJ launches task force to tackle Covid-19 fraud Imposters among us, CSA warns Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Retail trading surge on regulators’ radar, Vingoe says Keywords FraudCompanies UBS The trader was arrested on Sept. 14 after on charges of committing fraud that cost the bank over US$2 billion. The incident pushed then-CEO Oswald Gruebel to resign and damaged the bank’s efforts to clean up its image after being involved in a United States tax evasion investigation and sustaining huge losses on subprime mortgages during the financial crisis. City watchdog the Financial Services Authority and its Swiss counterpart have launched an investigation into why UBS failed to spot allegedly fraudulent trading. Adoboli’s case was delayed last year after he replaced his former lawyers at Kingsley Napley law firm with a new team from Bark & Co., which specializes in fraud cases. McCreath set a provisional trial date for Sept. 3 and remanded Adoboli in custody. He said he was willing to hear an application for bail. Related news Facebook LinkedIn Twitter A former UBS trader arrested in London on charges of fraud linked with unauthorized trades that cost the Swiss bank more than US$2 billion pleaded not guilty Monday to the charges against him. Kweku Adoboli, 31, pleaded not guilty to two counts of fraud and two of false accounting between 2008 and September 2011 at London’s Southwark Crown Court. read more

New Zealand supports democratic solution to Venezuela crisis

first_imgNew Zealand supports democratic solution to Venezuela crisis New Zealand supports a peaceful and democratic solution to the current crisis in Venezuela, Foreign Minister Hon Nanaia Mahuta says.“Underpinning this approach is a call to respect the will of the Venezuelan people and to hold free, fair and transparent elections.”“The government of Nicolás Maduro was not able to meet the minimum conditions for election observers, such as those from the European Union and Organization of American States, to attend. New Zealand continues to be extremely concerned about the humanitarian and human rights situation in Venezuela.”The human rights situation in Venezuela remains dire. In September the Independent International Fact Finding Mission on Venezuela reported accounts of extrajudicial executions, enforced disappearances, arbitrary detentions and torture and other cruel, inhumane or degrading treatment.“Venezuela held its legislative election over the weekend and there are serious concerns it was not conducted in a free and fair manner,” Nanaia Mahuta said.“New Zealand advocates for free, fair and democratic participation in the electoral process. These are the principles that are necessary for peace and stability in Venezuela.” /Public Release.
