Now the race is on to find alternatives, The Wall Street Journal explains. Aside from the occasional nasal spray for flu or sugar lump for polio, the hypodermic needle has been the mainstay of protecting against infectious disease since it was pioneered by a Dublin physician in 1844. But the pandemic has sparked a research-and-development gold rush in vaccines. About the Author Reprints GET STARTED Tags STAT+last_img read more

Non-bank consumer lenders to reap biggest rewards from U.K. Open Banking initiative

first_img Fed plays limited role in assessing climate risks for banks Canadian banks to focus on growth, spending and buybacks after strong second quarter “All lenders will have a clearer picture of borrowers’ affordability, allowing a more detailed assessment, versus standard creditworthiness scores. Underwriting enhancement will also support better risk-adjusted returns,” Moody’s says.Yet the firm also sees potential risks. “More data … may encourage the proliferation of financial products that encourage consumers to become over leveraged. In the event of a downturn, borrower defaults and losses would be higher than in a less indebted consumer market,” says Greg Davies, vice president and senior research analyst at Moody’s, in a statement.For fintechs, Open Banking will support their participation in the consumer lending market, “making the sector more attractive because of the fresh possibility of getting free access to high quality data,” Moody’s says.In particular, non-bank consumer loan providers are likely to be the primary beneficiaries of the initiative, it says.On the heels of open banking initiatives in the U.K. and the rest of Europe, financial sector policymakers in Canada have said that the idea should be studied here too, but they have yet to commit to the concept.

Vorontsov’s four-goal salvo ensures win for City

first_imgBangkok Casuals Football League 2012/13With a change of fixture last weekend, Pattaya City in 6th place played 4th place Bangkok in the capital and were looking forward to having the opportunity to climb further up the table. City nearly went ahead early in the game when a Bangkok defender lost the ball to Emery whose shot was well saved by the Bangkok keeper, and with the same player headed wide soon after from a centre by full-back Leat.  The City keeper had to be alert as well as Bangkok counter attacked and he proved to be equal to the task.With City playing an efficient offside trap, chances were few and far between for Bangkok but midway through the first half City gained a throw in on the left, from which Mokgothu broke clear, skipped past two defenders and squeezed the ball between the post and the Bangkok keeper to put City 1-0 in front.This was followed up by a period of sustained pressure from City: a long run by Vorontsov saw Bryant receive the ball in a good position but he could not supply the finishing touch and from a corner kick captain Walter’s free header soared over the bar, which was the last action of the half.After the interval Bangkok put together a series of attacks but they were short on ideas and the City defense held firm.  City were now coming to grips with the Bangkok tactics and a defense splitting ball by Dipta found Vorontsov who slipped the ball past the advancing keeper to make it 2-0 to City.  The visitors made it 3-0 soon after as Jannson sent a through ball to Vorontsov who shot past the Bangkok keeper to score his second goal in the space of 2 minutes.City had the scent of victory and Vorontsov completed his hat trick with City’s fourth goal as the Bangkok team just collapsed.  The hosts tried to get back into the game but a goal line clearance from City’s Tshuma reached Dipta in space and his pass found Vorontson whose shot hit the top of the net to make it 5-0 to City.Bangkok managed to score a consolation goal just before the final whistle to make the final score 5-1.  This was a steady performance by City who are now slowly climbing up the league, but there is a long way to go yet.last_img read more

Basketball Ireland weekend round-up

first_imgHula Hoops Men’s Under 20 Cup Quarter Finals:Ballincollig v Tolka Rovers, Ballincollig CS, 11.00 “We felt like we were playing as good as anyone in the league, we have a lot of confidence in what we do and Liffey have been brilliant in the first couple of weeks, so to come out and get a first half performance like we did – I was so proud of them,” said head coach Karl Kilbride. “We shot the ball really well in the first half and it dried up in the second, but the thing that we are really happy with is, defensively in the second half we were excellent.”Meanwhile Singleton SuperValue Brunell went head-to-head against Ambassador Glanmire in a thrilling Cork derby match up. Trailing at the half, Glamire had to dig deep in the fourth quarter to claim a 68-56 point victory.Elsewhere, it was a tough weekend for Maxol WIT Wildcats as they lost out 80-52 to DCU Mercy, while Portlaoise Panthers bounced back from their tough loss last week to take the win over NUIG Mystics.In the Men’s Super League Griffith College Swords Thunder continued their excellent recent form as they edged out Black Amber Templeogue in an overtime thriller in front of a capacity crowd in the Oblate Hall. Despite Lorcan Murphy netting an impressive 32 points, it was Travis Black’s performance in the second half for Thunder that was the catalyst to the visitor’s victory.“I’m absolutely ecstatic,” said a relieved head coach Dave Baker. “When it went to overtime I felt that we had the momentum but all credit to Templeogue they actually came out better at the start of the overtime. We struggled at little bit at the beginning but then we loosened up and we started to come back at them. It was to and fro, so it could have gone either way.”Garvey’s Tralee Warriors made the long trip up north to go head-to-head with Belfast Star. Warriors took an early 10-point lead in the first half thanks to top scoring from Trae Pemberton and Goran Pantovic. That cushion proved enough as the Warriors secured a thirteen point win in the end.“I told the guys before the game tough times don’t last, tough people do. We brought nine guys up there and they showed great resiliency, said a delighted head coach Mark Bernsen. “The first three quarters of the game we played as about as good as we can play at both ends of the floor. We let them come back a little in fourth but I’m really proud of our guys.”DCU Saints travelled to IWA-Clontarf to take on neighbours Pyrobel Killester in a north side derby. A third quarter run from the home team was the difference as Killester ended up securing a comfortable 98-66 win. Elsewhere, Maree clocked their third win in a row on Saturday as they ran out winners over Eanna, while UCD Marian took a comfortable win over Moycullen and UCC Demons proved too much for KUBS in Cork.Basketball Ireland Detailed Results November 24th – 26thBasketball Ireland Men’s Super League UCD Marian 82-61 Moycullen Top scorers UCD Marian: Mike Garrow 25, Joan-Jordi Vals-Llobera 15, Conor Meany 13Top scorers Moycullen: Paddy Lyons 13, Joseph Tummons 9, Brandon MaGuire 8, Dylan Cunningham 8Half time score: UCD Marian 45-39 Moycullen Basketball Ireland Mens Division One: Portlaoise Panthers 96-79 GameFootage.net TitansTop scorers Portlaoise Panthers: Tim Stewart 28, Mantas Vilimas 24, Jack Scully 8Top scorers GameFootage.net Titans: Keegan Ryan 34, Eoin Coughlan 15, Toms Fabriciuss 11Portlaoise Panthers 48-37 GameFootage.net Titans Sunday 3rd December 2017            Basketball Ireland Men’s Super League:   Griffith College Swords Thunder v Pyrobel Killester, ALSAA-Dublin, 15:00;Garvey’s Tralee Warriors v UCC Demons, Tralee Sports Complex, 15:00;Belfast Star v KUBS BC, Methodist College, 15:00;Black Amber Templeogue v DCU Saints, Oblate Hall Inchicore, 15:30; Courtyard Liffey Celtics dropped their first game of the season on Saturday as they lost out to Pyrobel Killester in the IWA Clontarf.

NDP: ‘faster, more inclusive growth’

first_img11 September 2013 Despite the significant progress made in transforming the South African economy, the majority of the population remains on the margins of development, says National Planning Commission deputy chairperson Cyril Ramaphosa. The economy created too few jobs and the majority of South Africans remained poor, Ramaphosa said during a packed lecture at Wits University in Johannesburg on Tuesday night, as he outlined the proposals contained in the country’s National Development Plan (NDP). A policy blueprint for eliminating poverty and reducing inequality in South Africa by 2030, the NDP identifies the key constraints to faster growth and presents a roadmap to a more inclusive economy that will address the country’s socio-economic imbalances. Ramaphosa told academics, students and civil society organisations that the NDP was the only plan that could deliver faster as well as inclusive economic growth. He said the plan took a critical and long-term perspective of the country as it outlined ways to overcome unemployment and poverty. To boost economic growth, the plan suggests a focus on three areas in particular, namely promoting labour-absorbing industries; growing manufacturing, financial services and telecommunications; and providing a broader social wage to enable even the poorest to have a decent living. The plan also offers clear measures for growing agro-processing and mining and supporting small business. Ramaphosa called on those who were criticising the plan to engage on some of the proposals and agree on a process to move forward. “We all want what is best for our people and what is best for our country. This plan is not perfect. There is no perfect plan in the world, and where there are differences, they must be resolved.” South Africa had lower inflation and higher levels of employment since 1994, he said; the number of middle-class people had doubled to more than four-million; workers now enjoy more protection than ever before. “We have a lot to be grateful for. The glass is not half empty but half full. We have a duty to fill that glass, and the NDP is giving us the chance to do so.” Ramaphosa said many of the unemployed people in the country lacked the skills they needed to enter certain markets. The challenge of creating meaningful jobs would forever be present, and this was the struggle “we must engage in”, he said. Source: SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more
