Moelis targets Asia expansion with purchase

first_img Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼ INVESTMENT bank Moelis is making its first move into Asia with the acquisition of a local boutique adviser.The firm, founded by high-profile former UBS banker Ken Moelis, has developed aggressively since it began trading just over three years ago and is now making a global push.The bank has purchased Asia Pacific Advisers, the Hong Kong-based boutique advisory firm established by Richard Orders, the former head of global clients in Asia-Pacific for ABN Amro. Moelis will take on all eight of APA’s staff, including two senior bankers who have worked in the Asia-Pacific region for the past 20 years.The investment bank’s expansion could help it to tap the exploding Asia-Pacific market for investment bank revenues. The move comes hot on the heels of the opening of a Moelis office in Dubai last week. Revenue from fees for investment banks across the region increased by 55.7 per cent to $12.1bn (£7.6bn) last year, representing 17 per cent of the $69.7bn global market, according to data compiled by Dealogic. whatsapp KCS-content Share Moelis targets Asia expansion with purchase Thursday 27 January 2011 8:54 pm More From Our Partners Killer drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.org980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comKamala Harris keeps list of reporters who don’t ‘understand’ her: whatsapplast_img read more

From Selma to Boston: ‘I’m fighting for the union!’

first_imgGeorgia Scott of Steelworkers Local 8751, Boston School Bus Drivers Union, spoke on Aug. 21 with Workers World reporter Minnie Bruce Pratt about the drivers’ ongoing struggle against union-busting corporate giant Veolia/Transdev. The company has illegally fired four union leaders and flagrantly violated contract conditions, resulting in almost 700 union grievances. Scott, the treasurer of Team Solidarity for the union, has been first a bus monitor and then a bus driver for 20 years. In 1965, when Scott was only nine years old, she participated in the historic “Bloody Sunday” march for voting rights over the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Ala., where she was born.Women union members at Workers World meeting say, “Victory to the school bus drivers!” Georgia Scott is second from right, back row.WW photo: Stevan KirschbaumWorkers World: How does Selma connect to your struggle today as a bus driver?Georgia Scott: This is the same struggle as 1965 in Selma. Schools were limited — all Black, all white. The education system did not work for people of color. We didn’t have the books, the tools we needed. There were places we weren’t allowed to go because of our color, like in the movies, in restaurants. There were neighborhoods we weren’t allowed to go into. The purpose of the movement was to give us the same rights as all the other people.I didn’t really understand a lot of what was happening, but I saw the segregated schools, the segregated parts of town. I didn’t understand Selma was as big as it was, and I was born there!Right now in Boston our children can go to school where they need to go to meet their needs. I did not have that opportunity growing up. Veolia cutting back on the buses, that will limit our children, their safety and their choices of education.The fight in Selma is the same fight as now.WW: How do monitors and drivers help keep the children safe?GS: The children get to know me, tell me if there is something going on at school or home. If there’s a fight on the bus, I’m the one who stops the fight. I am the one who is supervising. I am the one who will stop the child from being harmed.A camera is not going to protect the child. It’s me. I’m the one who will protect the child. That’s the most important piece of our work, the monitors and the drivers.We are the safety zone for the children.WW: Why is this union a social justice union — fighting also for other people, marching with people for Palestine, for LGBT rights and so forth?GS: I think we are all born with the will to resist. For me it comes with being born and raised in Alabama. My mother was on that bridge too, and I learned from her.I also think for this union it goes back to the 1974 busing struggle [against segregation] when the drivers were transporting our children into South Boston where they weren’t wanted. The drivers that came on board had the mentality of standing firm and being strong, knowing that the things going on were wrong.This union is based on listening, going out into the community, listening to the parents, building on that, and needing to struggle.WW: Some in the union are from Cape Verde and fought for liberation from Portuguese colonization, and many in this majority Haitian union are part of the struggle against imperialism in Haiti with Fanmi Lavalas.GS:  Our strength could also be we are a mixed group of people, from all walks of life. We’ve had different struggles. From being in the union, I’ve learned how to fight.Sitting at the table with Transdev in particular — I call it Trans-devil! — I’m looking across the table at one of them with a smirk on his face. He is dealing with thousands of children. There is nothing funny about talking about children on the street corner, and then boxing drivers in about the children’s safety.So when I see that smirk, my feeling is I have to fight this guy, and I need to be around people who know how to fight this guy.WW: How is Veolia/Transdev changing the way it computes your pay?GS: The hours we are paid for are the hours listed as the time it takes to drive a route — the flat rate.The flat rate, before Veolia put in the telematics system, was computed by experienced people who knew the specific routes on the road. They knew how long it really took to drive that particular route.Arbitration ruled against the use of GPS for the creation and re-evaluation of flat rates, but the company is still illegally using it every day.Now that the company is using GPS to compute the flat rate, the time they allow on routes is shorter and impossible. It doesn’t allow for fire trucks, accidents, emergencies on the bus. Or enough time to stop, get the child across, take a seat, get a seat belt on. They allow half a minute for that.We have to be able to take care of whatever is going on, and be paid for that. For instance, last year it was so cold, there was ice inside my bus. I told dispatch I was not going to move until I warmed the bus up for the children.But management said to me “Oh no, just go, put the kids on, and go“ — in a bus with ice inside!I said no! I’m saying no to a lot of things this company is ordering.WW: I heard Veolia/Transdev tried to make the drivers reapply for their jobs when the company took over.GS: Most of us, 95 percent, did not do the new hire application — one of the first things the company asked for. We said we are not new employees, the company is new. If anyone should do a new application, it should be the company — and if they had applied to us, they would not have gotten the job!WW: Why do workers need a union?GS: My brother is still in Selma. He’s 57 years old, worked at a hospital in the kitchen, in and out of the freezer. He developed arthritis, and the doctor put him on medical leave. The company fired him. Twenty years on the job. No union, no support, no protection!Now he’s working at a laundry. I went home and rode out to his workplace to have lunch with him. My brother told me he almost could not get away to go out with me. The company policy is: “You can’t have people coming here on the job.”That’s what these big corporate conglomerates want, to control us. They’ve got the power and the money.They’ve got the money. We’ve got the people.One person standing alone has no power. All of us together, that’s our strength.I know the importance of the union. This is not just about Boston. It’s going on in the rest of the county, and it’s a global issue.So I’m going to fight for the union!For more information, go to and search for “Boston school bus drivers step up the fight.”To support USW Local 8751, go to thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Courtesy photoThe field of candidates in the upcoming Pasadena Unified School District Board of Education election grew on Friday as nonprofit executive Priscilla Hernandez announced she was running for a seat in District 6.Hernandez sought the position not in spite of challenging times ahead, but because of them, according to a statement issued by her campaign.“I am seeking to represent the people of Pasadena and Sierra Madre on the School Board because our schools need experienced leaders who can successfully address the unprecedented educational challenges caused by COVID-19,” she said.Hernandez serves as an executive on the Hollenbeck Police Business Council, which provides after-school programs for inner-city kids. She said she has previously served as a deputy director under then-governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.“As an Executive with a successful Non-Profit Organization and a former Statewide Campaign Deputy Coalition Director for Education, I have the skills to maintain the District’s focus on academic excellence while identifying innovative methods for promoting student learning,” Hernandez said.“The road ahead for our schools will be challenging, but we can succeed by putting the needs of our students first,” she said. “Working together we must provide a learning environment that is stable, safe, inclusive and equitable.”Hernandez said she would work to put the PUSD in the best possible financial position,as well.“I will use my many years of experience in budgeting and resource management to maximize the District’s resources for core educational services and programs,” she said.Hernandez grew up in Los Angeles and has lived in Pasadena for a decade, according to her campaign.“Ms. Hernandez initiated and sponsored state legislation (California Assembly Bill 3064), which is known as “The Zacky Bill,” the statement said. “Inspired by her son’s life-threatening allergies, this progressive legislation aims to establish uniform state food allergy guidelines and best practices within local education agencies.

Reevaluation of coleoid cephalopod relationships based on modified arms in the Jurassic coleoid Mastigophora

first_imgMastigophora brevipinnis Owen, 1856, is a ‘fossil teuthid’ presently considered to be a member of the coleoid cephalopod Suborder Loligosepiina Jeletzky, which in turn has been placed by various authors in or near the Vampyromorpha Grimpe. Recent morphological and biochemical analyses indicate that vampyromorphs are more closely related to the Octopoda than to the Decapodiformes. Fossils of Mastigophora from the Oxford Clay (Jurassic: Callovian) show soft-tissue preservation and evidence of arm crown specialization. Some of these fossils have up to eight short, thick arms with circular sucker-like structures and filiform distal extensions, plus what appear to be the bases of two thinner ventrolateral arms. The latter lack proximal suckers and curve medially to insert into the arm crown, similar to the tentacles that are the modified ventrolateral arms of living squids and cuttlefishes. This suggests that the thinner structures were decapod-like tentacles. If Mastigophora had tentacles homologous with those of modern decapods, then it was a decapod, because this synapomorphy defines the Decapodiformes. This indication of decapod affinities for Mastigophora brings into question the relationships of the other ‘fossil teuthids’. The inferred relationship of the Loligosepiina, including Mastigophora, with the Vampyromorpha, based largely on similarities of gladius morphology with that of living Vampyroteuthis, may reflect shared plesiomorphic characters.last_img read more
