The White House responds to NYT report on Trump money

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 8 ottobre 2018

By Pete Vernon. President Trump called it “old, boring and often told.” Sarah Sanders labeled it “a totally false attack, based on an old recycled news story.” Charles Harder, the president’s lawyer, threatened to sue. But when Donald Trump’s press secretary was asked to name anything in The New York Times’s blockbuster story that was specifically inaccurate, she drew a blank.
To any objective observer, the 14,000 words of deeply investigated work that rolled off the New York Times printing presses on Wednesday morning, splashed across eight pages of the front section, were nothing short of extraordinary. David Barstow, Susanne Craig, and Russ Buettner spent more than a year digging through documents and interviewing key sources to authoritatively answer a simple question: What’s the actual truth about how Donald Trump got rich? Their conclusion, presented in painstaking detail, boils down to one major source of the president’s wealth: his father. The report details how Trump, his siblings, and their father utilized dubious tax schemes, including outright fraud, and revealed that the president is far from the self-made man he has claimed to be.Despite the administration’s protests, it was packed with new information, and lauded by journalists across the industry the day after it hit the Web. David Cay Johnston, the Pulitzer-winning investigative journalist whose 2017 scoop on Trump’s taxes was at least partially responsible for getting the Times investigation started, tells me that the Times journalists went far beyond any previous coverage of Trump’s wealth. “I’ve spent years on this,” he said. “Tim O’Brien, the historian Gwenda Blair, the late Wayne Barrett—we’ve all had little pieces of this. [But] this is light years beyond where we ever got.”CJR Editor and Publisher Kyle Pope praises the Times for embracing the long game, publishing a report that “transcends the headlines of the day, focusing on an elemental, fundamental aspect of this man and this presidency that, it turns out, is even more divorced from our common understanding than we might have previously thought. It is an example of journalism as long game, a sport that more of us need to be playing.” For those who hand-wave the piece’s conclusions by claiming it simply tells us things we already knew about Trump’s business dealings, Pope offers a rebuttal: “In fact, you didn’t know it,” he writes. “You thought it. You believed it. You intuited it. But that’s entirely different from having the raw information to back your theory up, to actually show, thanks to months of hard work, how it’s true and what it means.” Explicit in the Times’s story is a criticism of previous reporting—including by the Times itself—that was overly credulous, allowing Trump to create and burnish the fiction that his wealth was self-made, the result of “a small loan” from his father and years of hard work. The reckoning with previous reporting on Trump-as-deal-maker is a story that deserves more reflection, especially from outlets like the New York Post who often served as launderers for Trump’s own tips. As the Times report makes clear, Trump was bailed out again and again by his father, supported to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars, and aside from a handful of reporters, for decades no one seemed to care.

Greenpeace: “Ci aspettiamo che il nuovo report IPCC dimostri la necessità di azioni urgenti”

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 6 ottobre 2018

«Alluvioni, siccità, tifoni, ondate di calore sono sempre più frequenti e forti in tutto il mondo, e sono solo alcune delle conseguenze del clima che cambia», dichiara Luca Iacoboni, responsabile Campagna energia e clima di Greenpeace Italia all’apertura, in Corea del Sud, della riunione dell’Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), il braccio scientifico dell’Onu che si occupa in particolare di cambiamenti climatici.Il meeting, a cui Greenpeace partecipa in qualità di osservatore ufficiale con scienziati e delegazioni dei vari governi porterà, l’8 ottobre, alla pubblicazione di un rapporto che mostrerà ai decisori politici le possibili strade da percorrere per raggiungere l’obiettivo climatico, siglato alla COP21 di Parigi nel 2015, di mantenere l’aumento di temperatura entro 1.5 °C.«Crediamo che il report che verrà pubblicato la prossima settimana dall’IPCC – aggiunge Iacoboni – sarà un monito a tutta la classe politica: non abbiamo davvero più tempo da perdere. Possiamo limitare gli impatti dei cambiamenti climatici ma dobbiamo agire subito, abbandonare una volta per tutte petrolio, carbone, gas e nucleare e accelerare la rivoluzione energetica verso un mondo 100 per cento rinnovabile».Il report IPCC delineerà le varie possibili strade che ci troviamo davanti, poi starà alla politica decidere quale percorrere.«In questo momento così importante serve più ambizione da parte della politica, delle aziende e degli stessi cittadini, che vivono più di tutti sulla propria pelle gli impatti dei cambiamenti climatici. Con il report dell’IPCC avremo uno strumento chiaro e aggiornato su quelli che sono gli scenari per il presente e per il futuro. Ci aspettiamo che i leader mondiali che si riuniranno a dicembre in Polonia per la COP24 si schierino al fianco dei cittadini e non della grande lobby fossile», conclude Iacoboni.Alla prossima COP24, che si terrà in Polonia dal 2 al 14 dicembre, tutti i Paesi saranno chiamati ad aumentare i propri obiettivi di riduzione delle emissioni di CO2 e di produzione da fonti rinnovabili. Il report dell’IPCC dovrebbe essere lo strumento scientifico che guiderà le prossime decisioni e azioni politiche.

Report McAfee Labs sulle minacce: settembre 2018

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 29 settembre 2018

SANTA CLARA, California. McAfee, azienda leader nella cybersecurity dal dispositivo al cloud, ha recentemente pubblicato il Report McAfee Labs sulle minacce: settembre 2018 che prende in esame la crescita e le tendenze di nuovi malware, ransomware e altre minacce informatiche nel secondo trimestre del 2018. In Q2, McAfee Labs ha visto impennarsi la crescita dei malware volti a guadagnare tramite il ‘mining’ delle criptovalute iniziata nel quarto trimestre del 2017 e proseguita fino alla prima metà del 2018. McAfee ha anche osservato il continuo adattamento del tipo di exploit di vulnerabilità del malware utilizzato nelle epidemie di WannaCry e NotPetya del 2017.Anche se meno comune del ransomware, il malware cryptomining è emerso rapidamente come elemento importante nel panorama delle minacce. Dopo essere cresciuti di circa 400.000 unità nel quarto trimestre 2017, i nuovi campioni di malware criptomining sono aumentati di un sorprendente 629%, assestandosi a oltre 2,9 milioni di campioni nel primo trimestre del 2018. Questa tendenza è proseguita nel secondo trimestre, con una crescita dell’86% dei campioni totali, pari a oltre 2,5 milioni di nuovi campioni. McAfee Labs ha identificato quelli che sembrano essere malware più vecchi, come i ransomware appena riattrezzati con capacità di estrazione mineraria.In alcuni casi, il mining delle criptovalute prende di mira gruppi specifici invece che indirizzarsi a grandi numeri di potenziali vittime. Un ceppo di malware cryptomining ha preso di mira i giocatori su un forum russo ponendosi come una “mod” in grado di migliorare alcuni giochi popolari. I giocatori sono stati indotti a scaricare il software dannoso, che ha continuato a utilizzare le risorse del loro computer a scopo di lucro.Anche se il minning di criptovalute si rivolge principalmente ai PC, sono stati presi di mira anche altri tipi di dispositivi. Ad esempio, gli smartphone Android in Cina e Corea sono stati oggetto del malware ADB.Miner per produrre criptovalute Monero.

Best’s Market Segment Report

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 11 settembre 2018

The amount of mortgage exposure ceded to the global reinsurance industry continues to grow as more reinsurers partake in the currently lucrative business of covering mortgage risk. How the operating environment continues to be favorable for the U.S. mortgage industry and conducive to reinsurers taking on more mortgage risk is detailed in the new A.M. Best report, “Global Reinsurance: Optimism Fizzles, It’s Back to the ‘New Normal.” According to the report, reinsurers’ sustained appetite to provide coverage for mortgage risks is being driven mainly by the benign mortgage loss environment, the increased capital requirements for private mortgage insurers (as outlined in the Private Mortgage Insurance Eligibility Requirements) and the favorable home pricing conditions. Another key factor is the mandate by the Federal Housing Finance Agency requiring the two government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs), Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, to “de-risk” their balance sheets and reduce taxpayers’ risk by increasing the role of private capital in the mortgage market. As a result, supply and demand conditions have created a favorable outcome, with reinsurers being the beneficiaries of the insurance-reinsurance transactions of the GSEs’ U.S. mortgage credit risk-transfer programs. As of July 31, 2018, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae have transferred a combined $18.2 billion in limits to the reinsurance sector, and A.M. Best expects reinsurers’ participation in the credit risk-sharing programs to remain elevated over the next few years.The report also outlines the recent ramp-up of mortgage risk ceded by private mortgage insurers to third-party reinsures – averaging 13.2% of gross premiums written from 2016 to 2017, compared with 5.1% from 2012 to 2015 – and the emergence of mortgage insurance-linked securities (MILS) transactions for covering mortgage exposures. These MILS transactions effectively transfer mortgage exposures to the capital markets in a fully collateralized format, and as of August 2018, approximately $2.89 billion in mortgage insurance limits has been transferred to investors.Finally, the report section, titled “Reinsurance and the Speedy Road to U.S. Mortgage Risk,” outlines the continuum of “diversification benefits” achieved by the various types of reinsurers that cover mortgage risk ceded either by the private mortgage insurers or by the GSEs through their risk-transfer programs. This diversification benefit is a function of the marginal increase in Net Required Capital and depends entirely on the type of reinsurer taking such risks.“Diversification benefit is highest for well-diversified reinsurers with low-risk investment portfolios, markedly less for moderately diversified reinsurers with high-risk investment portfolios, and virtually non-existent for reinsurers that solely cover mortgage risk,” said Emmanuel Modu, managing director, Insurance-Linked Securities.A.M. Best’s criteria procedure for mortgage risk, “Evaluating Mortgage Insurance,” is available in the methodology section of A.M. Best’s website.

Pulse Biosciences to Report Second Quarter 2018 Financial Results and Operational Highlights

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 15 luglio 2018

Pulse Biosciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: PLSE), a medical technology company developing a proprietary therapeutic tissue treatment based on its Nano-Pulse Stimulation (NPS) platform, today announced that the Company will report second quarter 2018 operational highlights and financial results on Tuesday, July 31, 2018. Pulse Biosciences management will host a conference call and webcast at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time (ET) / 1:30 p.m. Pacific Time (PT).
Pulse Biosciences is a publicly listed clinical stage electroceutical company pursuing multiple clinical applications of its proprietary Nano-Pulse Stimulation technology. Nano-Pulse Stimulation (NPS) is a non-thermal, precise, focal tissue treatment technology comprised of nanosecond (billionth of a second) range pulsed electric fields that directly affect the cell membrane and intracellular structures and initiates cell death in treated cells. The initiation of cell death by NPS results in a minimal inflammatory response, which improves healing outcomes and supports the replacement of treated tissue cells with healthy tissue cells. NPS’ unique mechanism of action to initiate cell death has the potential to significantly benefit patients for multiple medical applications in dermatology, immune-oncology, and in other unique tissue targets. In cancerous lesions, NPS has been shown in preclinical models to induce immunogenic cell death (ICD), which exposes the unique antigens of the treated cells to the immune system and enrolls immune system cells, such as cytotoxic T-cells to mount an adaptive immune response. More information is available at http://www.pulsebiosciences.com.

Report of interventional cardiology practice presented in first extensive survey

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 24 maggio 2018

Paris, France A report on interventional cardiology practice from an extensive survey is presented at EuroPCR 2018, the annual meeting of the European Association of Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions (EAPCI), a branch of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC).1
The EAPCI White Book is the first systematic data collection on the practice of interventional cardiology, a branch of cardiology which delivers catheter-based (percutaneous) treatment of heart diseases – for example inserting stents to open clogged arteries (called percutaneous coronary intervention, or PCI). A wide spectrum of resource allocation and treatment implementation was reported by countries participating in the 2016 survey. Hospitals equipped with catheterisation laboratories (the operating rooms for catheter-based procedures) ranged from less than 2 to more than 5 per million people. Likewise the number of interventional cardiologists ranged from 10 to more than 25 per million people. Clinical evidence supports the performance of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) by inserting the catheter via the radial artery in the wrist and using drug-eluting stents where indicated. The survey found that more than half of PCIs were performed via the radial artery and drug-eluting stents were frequently used (more than 3,000 cases per million inhabitants) in most of the participating countries. Yet the survey highlighted a low penetration rate of drug-eluting stents in a few countries, suggesting that there are barriers to implementing this effective treatment. Primary PCI, an urgent first treatment to open clogged arteries (rather than clot-busting drugs) is recommended by ESC guidelines for treatment of patients suffering a heart attack.2 Most countries participating in the survey were delivering at least 500 primary PCIs per million inhabitants, the level promoted by Stent – Save a Life!, the EAPCI’s primary PCI implementation programme. The survey shows that transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) and other percutaneous structural heart interventions are becoming increasingly popular. However, the implementation of this therapy is not uniform among the participating countries due to different reimbursement policies. The survey covers all aspects of interventional cardiology including organisational models, numbers of procedures, resource allocation, and training. The 16 countries participating in the 2016 survey were Belgium, Denmark, Egypt, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, and the UK. Future editions will include more ESC member countries.Professor Emanuele Barbato, lead author, said: “The EAPCI White Book is a valuable resource for monitoring the implementation of guideline recommendations in clinical practice. Healthcare payers and regulatory bodies can use it to compare the allocation of resources to interventional cardiology in Europe. The reported trends in practice will enable industry bodies to target investment to clinical needs.” The data were collected by interventional cardiologists in national cardiac societies and working groups under the leadership of Professor Michael Haude, EAPCI President, in collaboration with the ESC Atlas of Cardiology, a compendium of cardiovascular statistics from the 56 ESC member countries. Professor Panos Vardas, senior author of the Atlas and ESC Past President (2012 – 2016) said: “The EAPCI White Book is an important companion to the ESC Atlas of Cardiology, providing more in-depth information on this rapidly growing domain in cardiology.”

Best’s Special Report: Takaful in the MENA Region: Finding the Right Ingredients for Success

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 15 maggio 2018

A.M. Best believes there are significant opportunities for takaful operators in most Middle East and North Africa (MENA) markets to provide sound financial protection that is in line with consumers’ religious sensibilities, taking into account the huge global Muslim population. However, these opportunities continue to remain disappointingly unrealised, with takaful companies struggling to establish strong business profiles.In a new Best’s Special Report, titled, “Takaful in the MENA Region: Finding the Right Ingredients for Success”, A.M. Best states due to a lack of sufficient differentiation, takaful providers remain subject to fierce price competition with larger, more established insurers that already benefit from greater brand awareness and established distribution networks. Furthermore, additional support from shari’a scholars in promoting Islamic financial products is essential for the growth of the takaful sector.Salman Siddiqui, associate director, said: “Given the proportion of Muslims in the MENA region, A.M. Best considers the take-up of shari’a-compliant insurance to be disappointing, especially in contrast with the Malaysian experience, which exhibits higher takaful penetration – despite the country having a lower proportion of Muslims. With the exception of Saudi Arabia, where all insurers operate under the unified co-operative insurance model, which is distinctly different from the traditional takaful model, most of the remaining Middle Eastern takaful operators have struggled to establish competitive positions in their respective markets.”The report examines market trends including merger and acquisition activity and notes despite some market consolidation, the business profiles of the majority of takaful companies remain limited. A.M. Best considers the Middle East insurance markets to be concentrated and generally a few large players dominate their respective markets, with the other market participants competing for the remaining premium.Mahesh Mistry, senior director, analytics, said: “Operators with strong business profiles and track records of good operating performance are able to attain higher credit ratings from A.M. Best. Conversely, those who struggle in establishing their franchises, and suffer from poor performance find it harder to attain strong credit ratings. Additionally, a number of takaful companies have had difficulties in meeting minimum solvency rules, which has also led to lower credit ratings.”

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 29 aprile 2018

The “Epiomic Epidemiology Series: Rett Syndrome Forecast In 23 Major Markets 2018-2028” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.Rett syndrome (RTT) is a rare neurodevelopmental disorder characterised by loss of acquired skills after a period of apparently normal development. It is divided into typical, atypical and variant forms, most of which affect girls. It used to be considered as one of the autism spectrum disorders, but when its aetiology was determined to be an X-linked (rarely autosomal) single-gene mutation, it was removed from that group and is now considered as a separate pathological entity.
This report provides the current prevalent female population for Rett syndrome across 23 Major Markets (USA, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, Poland, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, Estonia, Russia, Turkey, Japan, China, South Korea, India, Australia, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina) split by 5-year age cohort. In addition to the current prevalence, the report provides an overview of the risk factors, diagnosis and prognosis of the disease, along with specific variations by geography and ethnicity.Providing a value-added level of insight from the publisher’s analysis team, several features of Rett syndrome patients, as well as the main comorbidities of the disease have been quantified and presented alongside the overall prevalence figures. These sub-populations within the main disease are also included at a country level across the 10-year forecast snapshot.

Best’s Special Report: How Will European Insurers React to Uncertain Economic Conditions?

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 22 aprile 2018

European (re)insurers have benefited from investment gains as they have increased their holdings in equities over recent years, although inevitably their exposure to market risk has risen, according to a new report by A.M. Best. Analysis of the 500 largest companies in Northern and Western Europe, with a combined invested asset base of more than EUR 8 trillion, shows over a six-year period, there was a decline in allocation to fixed-income products.The Best’s Special Report, titled, “Interest Rates – The Long Wait. How will European Insurers react to Uncertain Economic Conditions?” states (re)insurers and pension funds form an important part of the investor base searching for yield to maintain their profitability and funding levels. Consequently, an increasing proportion of (re)insurers’ investment portfolios are being allocated to shares and non-traditional asset classes, which provide the potential for higher returns. A.M. Best estimates there has been a 2-3% shift between fixed-income and quoted equity over the six years leading up to 31 December 2016, equating to around EUR 200 billion. This is despite Solvency II coming into effect on 1 January 2016.Thomas Bateman, financial analyst, said: “This more rigorous risk-based regulatory framework in theory should have encouraged insurers and reinsurers toward a more efficient asset allocation, to optimise performance and solvency. However, the data does not seem to be consistent with a view that this could result in investment portfolios that attract lower risk charges. Insurers and reinsurers operating in the region are considered to be well-capitalised, hence there is limited pressure from a capitalisation perspective for companies to de-risk their investment portfolios. In addition, companies in Northern and Western Europe tend to use sophisticated asset liability management techniques, which form a core part of the strategic allocation process. Consequently, as capital management forms only one portion of the investment process it is unlikely to be the primary driving force behind asset selection at present.”
