​AMF demands overhaul of Swedish pension rulebook

​AMF demands overhaul of Swedish pension rulebook

first_imgThere was much debate on both sides of the political spectrum about tax reform, he added, so it should also be discussed how much of that went to the public pension.“Otherwise, the link between a long working life and a reasonable pension risks being reduced for large groups with relatively low wages,” he said.In its report, AMF outlined five specific proposals for regulatory change, including safeguarding the lifelong income principle of the public pension, harmonising public pensions and occupational pensions, and the introduction of a single occupational pension for individuals regardless of the number of employers they have over their careers.Adolphson Björck also warned about possible consequences of the trend for Swedes to withdraw their pensions early on in retirement, rather than opting for a lifelong payout stream.“Taking part of your occupational pension in a short period is undramatic,” he said. “But taking out entire occupational pensions in a few years leads to a large loss of income when one has to manage on the public pension and any private savings alone.” Information about the benefits of lifelong payments had to be better, he said, particularly with payment rules set to become more flexible in the future. Sweden should overhaul its pension legislation to ensure the state pension can keep pace with inflation, according to one of the country’s biggest pension providers.In a new report, the SEK590bn (€55.9bn) pension fund AMF – which is jointly owned by the Swedish Trade Union Confederation and the Confederation of Swedish Enterprise – also said the trend towards members withdrawing their occupational pensions early in retirement must be halted.AMF said that, while next year was expected to bring legislation to raise the default retirement age and boost basic financial protection, politicians also needed to safeguard the income protection element of the state pension.Dan Adolphson Björck, economist at AMF, said: “A higher retirement age is not for everyone, and it is possible to strengthen the public pension without sending the bill to employees or employers. Today, one third of employers’ contributions do not go to pensions and social insurance, but to the state’s budget.”last_img read more

New Zealand an attractive target for cartels in war against meth

New Zealand an attractive target for cartels in war against meth

first_imgStuff co.nz 10 March 2020Family First Comment: “We need to continue to disrupt the organised crime group and take their assets. We need to demonstrate to these organisations that organised crime activity won’t be tolerated in New Zealand, and it is simply not worth it. But on the other end we need to work with our communities to address the problem of addiction.” – Detective Constable Blair MacDonald, manager of the National Drug Intelligence Bureau (NDIB).Exactly, but don’t legalise it. That would be a public health and societal disaster.Almost 1.8 tonnes of methamphetamine was seized in New Zealand last year, yet the drug continues to dominate the illicit substance abuse market. Are we losing the war against meth? MARINÉ LOURENS reports.“I didn’t even know what meth was until family members introduced me to it. They were dealers and they were like, ‘You have to try this!’ I guess it was peer pressure. And when I tried it, it was really good. At first I didn’t think I was addicted, but then I started using more and more.”Melanie* was 33 years old when she first used methamphetamine. What was first a novelty quickly became a habit. It wasn’t long until she was using the drug a few times a week.But it is a slippery slope to rock bottom. Melanie ended up on the street after losing her house, her furniture and custody of her children before she realised she needed to seek help.She has now been clean for more than a year.Melanie is one of thousands of New Zealanders who has fallen victim to the surge of meth across the country.A record amount of meth was seized by New Zealand law enforcement agencies in 2019 – just under 1.8 tonnes.READ MORE: https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/119876871/new-zealand-an-attractive-target-for-cartels-in-war-against-methKeep up with family issues in NZ.

That is how I expect us to go. This is part of your government improving the services and the equipment available at the hospital. We now have our own oxygen plant. We no longer have to buy oxygen from private sector people. We manufacture our own oxygen here. Not only can we now supply the hospital with oxygen, but we can now boast of supplying all health centers on the island,” he explained.Timothy said government is now in the process of refurbishing the sections of the hospital to accommodate an isolation building.“That isolation building will be used to treat patients with infectious diseases such as the H1N1, that we will be able to fit the people somewhere away from the patients.

Axed Chelsea star poor form put down to split from stunning girlfriend

Axed Chelsea star poor form put down to split from stunning girlfriend

first_img Kepa’s friends and family reportedly believe the Spain star is “suffering quite badly” from the “recent” break-up with his glamorous girlfriend of nine years, Andrea Perez. SunSport reported earlier today the world’s most expensive No1 was “shocked” to be dropped by Blues’ boss Frank Lampard – but is “determined” to win back his place ahead of this summer’s Euro 2020. Now respected Spanish daily El Mundo claim the 25-year-old personal life is one reason for his dip in form. He did post a holiday shot from a tropical beach last summer – but of himself sitting alone. El Mundo say: “Those close to him are clear about one of the main reasons for his drop in form, his recent split with his long-term girlfriend.” They add: “His partner went with him to London when he left his former club Athletic Bilbao and had been his rock until the relation ended. Axed Chelsea keeper, Kepa Arrizabalaga’s dodgy displays have been blamed on splitting from his childhood sweetheart. Loading… Andrea, who was 25 when Kepa signed for Chelsea, reportedly closed her Instagram account after sparking rumours he was heading for Real Madrid rather than London. And on the pitch this season, he has rarely looked at his sharpest. Stats for January outed Kepa as the least successful stopper in the Premier League when it comes to his overall save percentage. In fact, he let in 32 goals in just 24 Prem matches this term, persuading Lampard to omit him for Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Leicester. Kepa and Perez were famed on Instagram for exotic snaps of their travels, including in their swimwear on exclusive beaches. read also:Lampard in battle with Chelsea to sell Kepa ahead of Pope move But the last time £71million Kepa uploaded a photo of the couple together was the month before he joined Chelsea in August 2018.

I refused to pay bribe for 2006 World Cup place- Gargo

first_imgEx Ghana player Mohammed Gargo has made a startling revelation to Joy Sports which suggests that he, Sam Johnson and Augustine Ahinful could have played for Ghana at the Germany 2006 World Cup but for their refusal to pay monies to some persons.The ex Udinese midfielder alleged that he and his two other colleagues (Johnson and Ahinful) were invited to play for Ghana following the successful qualification campaign for Ghana’s first appearance at the Mundial but were shocked with demands for money by some unnamed persons for money before they could make the final squad.Gargo, a former Coach of RTU, who was speaking on last Saturday’s Joy Sports Link said he had to abandon the idea of playing in Germany 2006 because he felt it was wrong.“The GFA called myself, Augustine Ahinful and Sam Johnson and told us they were preparing our invitation to come and join the Black stars squad for the World Cup in 2006. We came down and the story turned around to be that we have to see some people at the FA to issue some “envelopes”, Mohammed Gargo told Nathaniel Attoh on Saturday’s Joy Sport Link on Joy FM.“I believe we have served Ghana enough that one must not pay money to get an opportunity to represent the country at that stage,“I’m not sure the officials of the GFA or the technical handlers of the Black Stars then were aware of this. and i eventually realised that the person engaging in this did not even have any influence in the technical team.” “We the players discussed it amongst ourselves and realized we just have to let it go because and not give them the chance to start this ‘black’ business if I may call it.”According to Mohammed Gargo the Black Stars could have gone past the second round of the 2006 World Cup if he and his two other colleagues were included in the squad.last_img read more

Dodgers’ blistering start has them focused on next October opportunity

Dodgers’ blistering start has them focused on next October opportunity

first_imgLOS ANGELES — Only 83 days until the Dodgers start playing meaningful games again.Oh sure, there are issues to be addressed in the bullpen – and there are already signs of improvement. There are injuries to be absorbed and avoided – and Corey Seager, A.J. Pollock and David Freese are all expected back on Friday.But nothing really important is likely to happen until October.“I don’t think looking forward to anything is bad,” said Dodgers left-hander Clayton Kershaw, one of the team’s five All-Stars this week. “We all have our sights set on that, no doubt. But it can’t take away from the day to day. It’s almost like you have to think of it (the remaining 2½ months of the regular season) as a buildup to October. You’re not just waiting and then you turn it on. It’s honing your craft, getting better, getting better as a team and then trying to peak in October.” How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire The Dodgers have done this to themselves. By reaching the World Series the past two years, they have made anything else unthinkable and anything but a World Series victory this time unacceptable. And by winning 60 games before this year’s All-Star break and moving 13½ games out in front of the NL West, they have made it impossible to think about anything else.“Nothing is important in the second half but stay healthy and win a championship,” Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen said. “At this point, I feel like there’s nothing individual to accomplish. There’s no goals. The only goal left is a championship. That’s all that matters.”It’s all that mattered to the 2017 and 2018 Dodgers as well – at least that’s what they said at the time. But this year’s team has learned from those experiences. The bitter pill of a Game 7 loss to the Houston Astros and the stinging five-game dismissal from the Boston Red Sox last fall have hardened this year’s team. The infusion of new faces in the clubhouse have kept the focus on the future and avoided a six-month simmer in regret.“You just have a group of guys in here, where 25 guys are all on the same page, pulling on the same end of the rope, who know that everyone is going to go out every single night and play their butt off to help us win a ballgame,” Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner said. “I think the last couple years, I’m not sure everyone was on the same page.”Jansen points to a similar element, calling the team-wide “commitment” the No. 1 reason he thinks this year’s team can end October with a victory. Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start center_img “Yeah, 100 percent,” Turner said when asked if this year’s offensive approach makes him more confident about October success. “When you get to the postseason you’re facing the best pitching in the league. That’s why those teams are in the postseason. It takes 1 through 8, 1 through 9 quality at-bats, grinding guys, making them work hard and hopefully getting those starters out of the game early and try to take advantage of the bullpen. That’s what it takes to be successful in the postseason.“I think it was hit and miss (in the past). I don’t think it was every single guy every single day. And even this year there’s been spans when it gets away from some guys, myself included. But I feel like as a whole, day to day, our at-bats have been spectacular, day in day out.”The ultimate pragmatist, Kershaw is not willing to proclaim this year’s team special – until it accomplishes special things.“I don’t know. It feels the same,” he said. “Everybody says this team is like 2017. Well, we went to the World Series in 2018 too so it’s not like we were bad last year.”No, but last year’s team took a much different road to October, digging a hole for itself that required 163 games to escape then needing to win Game 7 of the NLCS in a hostile environment.“Yeah,” Kershaw said. “I don’t care about the road. I just want to get there.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season “The commitment that we have,” Jansen said. “The clubhouse is different. You can sense how hungry everybody is. Listen, it’s a (bitter attitude) over the last two World Series teams but also commitment to forget about it. We already put that behind our back. But that (bitter) feeling that we didn’t finish it off? That motivation is pushing us through with a better clubhouse atmosphere.”Those comments accuse by their absence players such as Yasiel Puig, Matt Kemp, Manny Machado and Yasmani Grandal. Their departures have left in their wake a more professional clubhouse with a settled energy, less driven by agendas and resentments.“It’s a special group,” Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said when asked why this year might be the year. “The camaraderie – and not just in that everyone gets along – there’s a great dynamic where everyone is challenging one another. Every day in the clubhouse, the focus is on what they can do to win a game that night. People are sharing information and talking through it. I feel like the growth a lot of our offensive players have made has a chance to really benefit us if we get a chance to play in October.”Camaraderie is nice. But it doesn’t win championships. The Dodgers lost to the Astros and Red Sox largely because their offense shrank in the spotlight, batting .213 in the two World Series with almost as many strikeouts (118) as hits and walks combined (131).This year’s lineup is less vulnerable to left-handed pitching. Max Muncy has a higher OPS against lefties than righties and no one in baseball has a higher OPS against left-handed pitching than Cody Bellinger – neither of them was even in the starting lineup against Red Sox left-handers Chris Sale and David Price in the first two games of last year’s World Series.And this year’s hitters have shown greater discipline, a willingness to take walks (347, second in the majors), see more pitches (fourth in the majors) and chase fewer (a 28.6 percent chase rate, fourth in the majors). It’s a combination that has made it difficult on opposing starters and produced multiple comeback wins against the likes of Josh Hader, Kirby Yates and Edwin Diaz.Related Articleslast_img read more

When red corner vs. blue corner is unfair

When red corner vs. blue corner is unfair

first_imgAlieen Eaton promoted fights at The Olympic Auditorium in Los Angeles for four decades during the mid-20th century, first with her husband and later with Don Chargin. There was an informal “gamblers section” at The Olympic where bets were placed on one corner or the other before the fighters entered the ring. Ring announcer Jimmy Lennon Sr., holding a wooden disk in his hand, would meet the fighters as they climbed through the ropes. One side of the disk was black, the other white. Lennon instructed the fighter who entered the ring first to “call it.” The fighter would call “black” or “white.” Lennon would flip the disk. And whichever fighter won the toss had choice of corner.Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a yearOctogenarian boxing publicist Bill Caplan recalls, “A lot of gamblers held their breath on that one.”Then television dictated a change. ESPN, USA Network and HBO began demanding that favored fighters sit in certain corners to be more easily seen on camera between rounds. And things went from there.Now most fight cards have a “winners” corner and a “losers” corner. For major bouts, the televising network often tells the promoter which fighter it wants in which corner. For undercard bouts, it’s the promoter’s call. But almost always, fighters who are expected to win are assigned to the same corner.”And it’s not just the pros,” trainer Pat Burns says. “You see the same winners-corner losers-corner set-up at big amateur tournaments too.”Moreover, this delineation often extends to dressing rooms with all of the favored undercard fighters in one big room and the designated losers in another.Fighters in the underdog corner know why they’re there. They understand their role going in. Some of them are motivated by their B-side status. Others fight down to expectations. On occasion, a B-side fighter returns to the losers dressing room with a victory, and his brethren erupt in cheers.If he did it, I can too.But these moments are few and far between. Most of the time, underdog dressing rooms are dreary places.Trainer Don Turner objects to the winners-corner losers-corner dichotomy.”Most fights today aren’t competitive,” Turner says. “But why would you announce that to everyone in the arena by putting all the guys you know are going to win in one corner and all the guys you know are going to lose in the other?”The answer is simple. The playing field has always been tilted more toward the house favorite in boxing than in other sports. Promoters do it to give the fighter they expect and want to win an additional advantage.”As long as the present system is in use,” promoter Lou DiBella says, “I’ll do what I can within the rules to benefit my fighter. But let’s be honest about it. The present system isn’t fair. It makes the point to the judges who the favored fighter is and who’s supposed to win. And in a close round that a judge has trouble deciding, that can be a factor.””I’d love to say that, once the bell rings, the corners don’t matter,” trainer-commentator Teddy Atlas adds. “But that’s not true. Consciously or subconsciously, some judges are influenced by which corners the fighters are in. The whole situation makes it easier for some judges to do the wrong thing. It greases the skids a little bit more than they’re already greased and gives another advantage to the fighter who’s already protected by the house money.”And there’s more.”You talk about the judges being influenced,” longtime promoter Don Elbaum observes. “And they are. But the ring doctors are influenced too. They’re much more likely to stop a fight in the corner when they know a certain guy is expected to lose. And it can affect the referee’s rulings too.”MORE: Who deserves fighter of the decade honors?What should be done to remedy situation?David Berlin, who served with distinction as executive director of the New York State Athletic Commission several years ago, says, “I don’t like the practice. I think it sends the wrong message. But I don’t think it’s a proper subject for regulation. It’s the commission’s job to appoint competent officials who aren’t influenced by which corner a fighter is in. Beyond that, it’s the promoter’s show, and the promoter should be able to present it the way he or she wants to.”Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission executive director Greg Sirb is in accord and notes, “We talked about it with some of the promoters last year. I’d like to see them mix the corners up a bit, but it’s not enough of an issue for us to mandate it.”That said; fights would be a bit more equitable if corners were assigned at random by a coin toss. In the early years of boxing in the United States, fighters flipped a coin to determine which fighter sat in which corner. Or alternatively, the fighter who entered the ring first had choice of corner. That was important for outdoor fights since it was often the difference between a fighter facing the sun between rounds or sitting with his back to it.Over time, traditions evolved. “I don’t have a problem with which fighter walks to the ring first and which fighter is introduced first,” Turner says. “But once the bell rings, the fighting should speak for itself.”So let’s give the final word to Atlas, who declares, “For most of the fights I’ve been involved with as a trainer, my guys have been in the favorite corner. But that doesn’t keep me from seeing how unfair the situation can be. You’re putting up a sign that tells the judges that the person who’s paying them to judge wants a certain fighter to win. And you’re announcing to the world, ‘This guy is just an opponent. We brought him here so our guy can get another win.’ It doesn’t seem right to me. Most B-side guys are trying to win whether they have a realistic chance of winning or not and whether the people running the show want them to have a chance or not. They’re telling themselves, ‘This could be my big moment. This could be the night I turn my life around.’ They’re putting their future, they’re putting their life on the line. Don’t tilt the playing field more than it’s already tilted.”Thomas Hauser’s new email address is thomashauserwriter@gmail.com. His most recent book — Protect Yourself at All Times — was published by the University of Arkansas Press. In 2004, the Boxing Writers Association of America honored Hauser with the Nat Fleischer Award for career excellence in boxing journalism.last_img read more
