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

Sunderland part company with O’Neill

first_img The 61-year-old’s departure was confirmed hours after the 1-0 home defeat by Manchester United, which left the club sitting just a point clear of the Barclays Premier League relegation zone with seven games left to play. A club statement said: “Sunderland AFC has announced that it has parted company with manager Martin O’Neill this evening. The club would like to place on record its thanks to Martin and wishes him well for the future. An announcement will be made in the coming days regarding a successor.” Martin O’Neill parted company with Sunderland on Saturday night after the Black Cats slipped deeper into relegation trouble. Press Associationcenter_img A run of eight league games without a win which has yielded only three points ultimately cost O’Neill his job after a little more than 15 months at the helm. The Black Cats’ last victory came at Wigan on January 19, and with trips to European champions Chelsea and rivals Newcastle to come ahead of bogey team Everton’s visit to the Stadium of Light on April 20, things could get worse before they get better. O’Neill, of course, was the man whose appointment Sunderland fans had craved for years, and his arrival at the Stadium of Light in December 2011 was greeted with delight. The Northern Irishman had never made any secret of his boyhood affection for the club and the chance to manage them fulfilled a long-held dream. His start was just what owner and chairman Ellis Short was looking for as a run of seven victories in his first 10 league games eased the club out of relegation trouble and sent spirits soaring. The Black Cats ran out of steam towards the end of the campaign, but with their top-flight status secured and the promise of a summer rebuilding programme, attention turned to the new campaign with genuine optimism. That only increased when Short provided O’Neill with a total of £22million with which to buy Scotland international striker Steven Fletcher and England winger Adam Johnson, and the American put his hand in his pocket once again in January to add Danny Graham and Alfred N’Diaye to the squad. However, only Fletcher, who was this week ruled out for the remainder of the season with ankle ligament damage, has hit the ground running with his 11 goals a major contribution to the 31 points they have claimed to date. last_img read more

Tesla Vehicles Other Stock EVs Compete In Eco Grand Prix

first_imgAbove: Tesla Model S races past a Hyundai Ioniq (Source: eco Grand Prix)The eco Grand Prix is an inclusive and egalitarian racing series that has a mission to highlight the fun electric cars can deliver without damaging the environment. Adrian Smith, writing in Auto Futures, explains that, unlike Formula E, the eco Grand Prix is open to all drivers, not only professional racing teams. Since its inception in 2013, the series has conducted a dozen competitions. In 2018, it held events in Spain, Germany and the Pyrenean principality of Andorra, where several Model S drivers took part in a race on a snow-covered track.

As always, the race was designed to test and promote EV technology.“Every event is an endurance challenge,” says Luc Perraudin, ecoGP’s Event Manager. “Every team, private or [company-sponsored], will make as much distance within the provided time (at least 6 hours at present) based on CEE 32 amps 22 kW maximum – so every EV has the same potential chance to make it. EcoGP is only for 100% [stock EVs] – products that everybody can buy. They are not allowed to be manipulated for the challenge.” Watch Tesla Model 3 Tackle Pikes Peak *This article comes to us courtesy of EVANNEX (which also makes aftermarket Tesla accessories).
