Bernardino confirmed for further five-year term at EIOPA

first_img“We will proceed with building a modern, dynamic and credible supervisory authority, working for the public good with a truly European spirit,” he said.Bernardino began his European career at CEIOPS, being elected its chairman in 2009.Prior to taking on the role of chairman at CEIOPS, and later being named as EIOPA’s inaugural chairman, he was director general for development and institutional relations at the Instituto de Seguros de Portugal (ISP), which he joined in 1989.He has already offered a glimpse of his second term’s focus, proposing the development of a framework for cross-border occupational defined contribution.The chairman has also repeatedly called for an overhaul of EIOPA’s funding model and, according to officials at the European Commission, is likely to reveal details of a new funding model early next year. The European Parliament has endorsed Gabriel Bernardino for a second term as chairman of the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA).In a statement released following a vote by the parliament’s economic and monetary affairs committee (ECON), Bernardino said he was thankful for the trust of both the parliamentarians and EIOPA’s board of supervisors, which in October extended his term until 2021.“In the past five years,” Bernardino added, “EIOPA has grown into an entity with a strong voice and has been a driving force in regulatory convergence.”He said EIOPA’s next journey would be to deliver a “strategic shift from regulation to supervision” and to focus on consumer protection and the financial stability of the EU.last_img read more

Legalisation of prostitution failing – John Key

first_img3 News 12 Nov 2012The Prime Minister believes the legalisation of prostitution has failed to safeguard sex workers and bring a halt to underage prostitution. The Auckland Council is today taking argument for and against a super-brothel near the Sky Tower. The Prostitution Reform Act passed in 2003 but John Key told James Coleman that it has failed to meet its aims. “Has it worked or probably not, there are still a lot of reports of young people being engaged in prostitution well and truly below the age which Parliament set which was 18.” Opponents of the super-brothel warn it’ll change the character of part of the city and hurt its image.http://www.3news.co.nz/Debate-over-Auckland-super-brothel-today/tabid/1607/articleID/276308/Default.aspxAbandoned Chch building demolished to deter prostitutesNZ Herald 12 Nov 2012An abandoned earthquake damaged block of flats in Christchurch has been bulldozed in a bid to stop prostitutes working from there. The move is the latest initiative to try to stop sex workers using residential areas to ply their trade. Long suffering residents around the St Albans and Edgeware area have been calling for action for months. City councillor Aaron Keown, who has been helping residents, said street prostitutes were taking their customers to an abandoned St Albans property on the corner of Purchas St and Bishop St. “There was a two-storey building, where there were three or four flats. Beside them was a set of garages which was quite well covered and that’s where the prostitutes were taking their customers,” he said. “The neighbours to the property alerted to me that was where the prostitutes were going and it was really quite disgusting,” he said. “There was all sorts of paraphernalia, used condoms and wrappers – it really was a health hazard.”http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10846921last_img read more

McDowell left green with envy

first_imgGraeme McDowell admitted he was envious of Rory McIlroy after his fellow Northern Irishman’s victory at the Open Championship. The 34-year-old, winner of the US Open in 2010, told reporters: “They just asked me in there what my emotions are for Rory, as I watched him walk to the 16th tee box. “I used the word ‘jealousy,’ but I think what I really meant was ‘envious’. “Envious because I’d love to walk down the 18th fairway with an opportunity to win the Claret Jug. “I’d love it to be me. It’s the greatest walk in world golf. It’s in there inside me somewhere. Some year it will be my year, hopefully.” McDowell has much admiration for McIlroy’s achievement, with the 25-year-old having led at Hoylake since the end of the first round. He said: “I have a huge amount of appreciation for what he’s doing and respect for what he is in the game of golf, and how good he is for the game of golf. So, great stuff.” As for his own performance, McDowell regarded the week as a good opportunity to double his major tally missed. McDowell, who wrapped up his tournament with an eagle three at the 18th hole, said: “I said at the start of the week that this venue, it was my type of venue – not super long, not a lot of advantage for the big boys to take trouble out of play, good iron play and big flat greens where I can putt well. “These were greens that I felt I could putt well on and did putt well on. Yes, opportunity missed but could I have caught him (McIlroy)? I don’t know.” McIlroy held off the challenge of Sergio Garcia and Rickie Fowler to win at Royal Liverpool by two strokes and capture his third major title. McDowell performed impressively himself on the final day, shooting a five-under-par 67 to finish in a tie for ninth on 10 under, and was frustrated not to have been challenging higher up. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
