Asia Reacts to US BSE Case

first_img Some of the biggest customers for US beef were quick to react to the news of a 4th case of BSE discovered in the US. Even though the infected animal never came close to the food supply, South Korea will halt customs clearance of any new U.S. beef imports, Park Sang Ho, an official at South Korea’s farm ministry, told Bloomberg by phone. The agriculture ministry shortly thereafter issued a statement saying it will take “necessary measures” on beef imports and will take steps “soon” in regard to the nation’s quarantine rules. Japan has no plan to suspend U.S. beef imports “at the moment” according to Minoru Yamamoto, director of the animal health division at the farm ministry. Source: Some material provided by Bloomberg news By Gary Truitt – Apr 24, 2012 Previous articleUpdate: USDA says Food Supply not Threatened by California BSE CaseNext articlePork Producers Not Happy with Burger King Decree Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE After falling sharply when the news of the BSE discovery broke, livestock markets began to recover in the overnight trade. “It’s just a small rebound after yesterday’s drop,” said Hiroyuki Kikukawa, general manager of research at IDO Securities Co. “An outbreak of mad cow disease will keep putting downward pressure on the market. This will keep buyers, including Japan, from easing trade curbs on U.S. beef imports.” Futures for June delivery climbed 0.3 percent to $1.1185 per pound on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange at 10:11 a.m. Tokyo time. Futures fell 2.6 percent to settle at $1.11575 per pound Tuesday to the lowest level since July 1 and the biggest percentage drop on a most-active contract since May 23.

Federal Judge Allows Embattled Attorney to Live in Pasadena Mansion While Trustee Moves to Sell It

Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. Community News Attorney Tom Girardi was allowed by a federal judge to stay in his Pasadena mansion as the Chapter 7 trustee overseeing his estate moves to sell it, Reuters Legal reported.The deal struck between Girardi’s brother Robert Girardi, who is serving as temporary conservator, and trustee Jason Rund was “fairly straightforward,” said U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Barry Russell during a hearing Tuesday.The judge at one point during the proceedings questioned whether Girardi’s wife, “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star and singer Erika Jayne, was aware of the bankruptcy proceedings. He also questioned what would happen to the mansion’s contents.Both Tom Girardi and his law firm Girardi Keese were placed into bankruptcy after Edelson PC, a Chicago-based plaintiffs firm, accused them of mishandling $2 million in settlement money that was supposed to go to victims of the Lion Air Flight 610 crash.Girardi and his firm’s assets were frozen by a Chicago federal judge late last year. A group of Girardi’s former business associates claimed the firm owed millions of dollars and forced the attorney and his firm into involuntary bankruptcy.Girardi’s attorneys have asserted since December that he is suffering from mental decline and incapable of addressing his mounting financial and legal concerns. In a Jan. 13 filing, Robert Girardi said his brother was unable to understand what was happening to him and his firm.The deal struck Tuesday, Reuters Legal reported, will give Tom Girardi 20 days to vacate the mansion once it is in escrow. The mansion has become too expensive for the plaintiff’s attorney to maintain, according to Leonard Pena, an attorney at Pena & Soma who is representing Robert Girardi.“There’s no way the debtor can service the mortgage on this property,” Pena said during Tuesday’s hearing. “He plans on moving, but obviously we didn’t want it to happen overnight.”The mansion, reportedly worth $15 million, is 10,277 square feet and has four bedrooms and six full bathrooms, Reuters Legal reported from online real estate listingsYoo said he sent emails to Mastan saying the couple’s communal property in the mansion now belongs to the trustee.Mastan, Pena and Yoo did not respond to requests for comment by Reuters.As part of the deal, Tom Girardi and his brother must keep the mansion “neat and tidy” and the utilities are paid. It also prohibits any communications with potential buyers. 17 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Donald CommunityPCC- COMMUNITYVirtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Community News Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS HerbeautyNutritional Strategies To Ease AnxietyHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyZac Efron Is Dating A New Hottie?HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty7 Most Startling Movie Moments We Didn’t Realize Were InsensitiveHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty8 Easy Exotic Meals Anyone Can MakeHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty15 Countries Where Men Have Difficulties Finding A WifeHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty5 Things To Avoid If You Want To Have Whiter TeethHerbeautyHerbeauty Top of the News center_img Subscribe Make a comment Community News Federal Judge Allows Embattled Attorney to Live in Pasadena Mansion While Trustee Moves to Sell It STAFF REPORT Published on Wednesday, February 24, 2021 | 4:21 pm CITY NEWS SERVICE/STAFF REPORT Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday STAFF REPORT First Heatwave Expected Next Week STAFF REPORT Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy More Cool Stuff Business News Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more

One of the pools is an Extended Timeline Pool Offering (EXPO) that includes NPLs 100 percent concentrated in Cook County, Illinois, and serviced by CitiMortgage Inc. The total in unpaid principal balance of the EXPO is $23.9 million.Potential bidders must be approved by Freddie Mac to access the secure data room that contains information on the NPLs and allows them to bid on the NPLs. Winning bidders and their servicers must meet the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA)’s NPL sale guidelines announced on March 2, which include approval by and good standing with government housing agencies (Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, Ginnie Mae, and the Federal Housing Administration); evaluating borrowers for eligibility in the government’s Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP); and applying a “waterfall” of resolution tactics before resorting to foreclosure.FHFA, Freddie Mac’s conservator, stated in its 2014 Report to Congress released in June that “FHFA’s expectation is that the sale of seriously delinquent loans through non-performing loan sales will result in more favorable outcomes for borrowers, while also reducing losses to the Enterprises, and, therefore, to taxpayers.”Freddie Mac encourages all eligible bidders to bid, including private investors, minority- and women-owned businesses, non-profits, and neighborhood advocacy funds. The deadline for qualified bidders to submit bids for the SPOs is July 28, 2015, and the deadline for bidding on the EXPO is August 18, 2015. According to Freddie Mac, the winning bidder will be determined on the basis of economics, subject to meeting the GSE’s internal reserve levels.According to Freddie Mac, advisors for the transaction are Citigroup Global Markets, Credit Suisse Securities, and The Williams Capital Group, an MWOB.Freddie Mac completed its first auction of an EXPO in June when it sold 157 deeply delinquent loans for a total of $31 million in UPB. The winning bidder was Corona Asset Management XII. EXPOs differ from Freddie Mac’s SPOs in that the loans include smaller pool sizes and a longer marketing period. Freddie Mac is targeting smaller investors with its EXPO auctions, which are intended to give these investors extra time to secure funding to participate in the NPL sales.Freddie Mac’s last SPO NPL transaction took place in late May. That SPO NPL transaction was Freddie Mac’s third of 2015 and fourth overall since the first sale occurred in July 2014. The four NPL transactions have totaled approximately $2.17 billion in UPB.

Fair, free and purity of elections be maintained”, the Court stated.The High Court’s DirectivesSubsequent to recording the submissions advanced by the Counsel for the petitioner as well as the Standing Counsel for the Election Commission, the Court issued these directions to the Election Commission: After finalising the verification of Demographically Similar Entries (DSE)/ Electoral Photo Identity Cards (EPIC)/Absentee-Shifted-Dead (ASD) voters, list be furnished to the political parties and Presiding Officers immediately. Issue a public notice cautioning voters against any attempt to cast multiple votes, warning them of strict action if found to have done the same Take photographs of all ASD voters identified in the polling booths. Obtain a declaration of all the ASD voters, in terms of Section 31 of Representation of Peoples Act, 1951.

In the course of its judgment disposing of the petition, the Court recorded the Election Commission’s Standing Counsel’s undertaking to publish a notice warning persons whose names were listed in two or more constituencies/booths, that is demographically similar entries (DSEs), of the consequences of voting more than once.Apart from this direction, which was suggested by Chennithala’s counsel during the hearing yesterday, the Court noted that action had been taken by the officers to identify DSEs upon the representations received.”..perusal of the statement indicates that acting on the representations and details furnished, action has been taken to identify DSE/EPIC,” the Court stated.Last week, Leader of Opposition in the Kerala Legislative Assembly, Ramesh Chennithala moved the Kerala High Court alleging the existence of bogus voters and double entry of voters in the Electoral Rolls for the upcoming Kerala Assembly Elections. The petition, filed through Advocates T Asaf Ali and Laliza TY, narrates that after the Final Electoral Rolls for the 2021 Assembly Elections were published on January 20, 2021, thousands of complaints were poured into the office of the petitioner alleging double votes, fake entries in the electoral rolls, illegal enrolment of votes in many times by single voter, multiple id cards etc. It is added that after a preliminary enquiry conducted at ward level it was found that the complaints were very genuine, warranting urgent remedial measures. Consequently, Ward Level Scrutiny Committees were constituted all over the state, the petition avers. Accepting that the material prima facie disclosed the existence of discrepancies in the final voters list, the Kerala High Court on Monday issued interim orders to the Election Commission that it must ensure no person votes more than once. In this light, the Commission was enjoined to take steps on “a war footing basis”. On Tuesday, the Election Commission submitted in Court that it has taken all possible steps to ensure that the sanctity of the electoral roll is maintained, and no person is allowed to cast an unauthorized vote in the upcoming Kerala Legislative Assembly elections. Pursuant to an intensive analysis of data provided by political parties on the issue of multiple entries, out or 316671 entries, as on March 30, 2021, the Commission was able to identity only 38586 Demographically-Similar Entries in respect Legislative Assembly constituencies in the State, the Commission informed the Court via this statement.Click here to download the judgmentNext Storylast_img read more
