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.

CMA welcomes Court judgment in Facebook and Giphy case

first_imgCMA welcomes Court judgment in Facebook and Giphy case The Court of Appeal criticised Facebook’s conduct, saying the “central problem in this case was entirely of Facebook’s own making”, and agreeing with the Tribunal’s finding that the company “sat on its hands” and “did not properly engage” with the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) following its derogation request.CMA Chief Executive Andrea Coscelli said:Today’s judgment reinforces an important and unequivocal message – initial enforcement orders are key to the CMA’s ability to protect UK consumers while carrying out its merger reviews.Both the Court of Appeal and Competition Appeal Tribunal have now endorsed our approach and our handling of this issue.Our investigation into Facebook’s merger with Giphy is ongoing, and we look forward to working with the companies further as we progress the inquiry.The CMA is currently investigating the merger of Facebook and Giphy, which completed on 15 May 2020.On 9 June 2020, the CMA imposed an initial enforcement order (IEO) on both companies, which prevents Facebook and Giphy from further integrating their businesses while the CMA’s investigation is ongoing.Facebook requested a partial lifting of the IEO, formally known as a ‘derogation’.Derogations give a business consent to do certain things that would be otherwise banned under an IEO. The CMA was unable to grant this request because it believed it did not have the necessary information from Facebook to reach a decision.This led to Facebook applying for a review of the CMA’s position at the Competition Appeal Tribunal. In November 2020, the Tribunal dismissed Facebook’s appeal in its entirety and the company appealed this decision to the Court of Appeal.Today’s judgment from the Court of Appeal dismissed all of Facebook’s grounds of appeal and upheld the decision of the Competition Appeal Tribunal, stressing the importance of merging companies engaging with the CMA when seeking a derogation.It further confirmed that “Facebook did not properly engage with the CMA. It put in its Carve-Out Requests and then sat on its hands, refusing to answer the CMA’s questions”.The Court approved of the CMA’s use of initial enforcement orders, which are intended to “hold the ring” while the CMA obtains the information it needs from businesses requesting derogations. The Court noted however, that “this process breaks down if those against whom Initial Enforcement Orders are made refuse to cooperate as happened in this case.”The Master of the Rolls, Chancellor of the High Court, and Lord Justice Philips unanimously agreed that there was no error in the Tribunal’s reasoning and that Facebook’s challenges to the CMA’s conduct were without merit.F /Public Release.

A pill that staves off aging? It’s on the horizon

first_img Published: March 28, 2018 • By Lisa Marshall Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Scientists have long known that restricting calories can fend off physiological signs of aging, with studies in fruit flies, roundworms, rodents and even people showing that chronically slashing intake by about a third can reap myriad health benefits and, in some cases, extend lifespan.From a public health perspective, that advice would be impractical for many and dangerous for some.But a new CU Boulder study published today indicates that when people consume a natural dietary supplement called nicotinomide riboside (NR) daily, it mimics caloric restriction, aka “CR,” kick-starting the same key chemical pathways responsible for its health benefits. Key takeawaysSharply restricting calories can fend off signs of aging, but for many people it’s not practical.Nicotinomide riboside (NR) mimics caloric restriction, kick-starting the same pathways responsible for its health benefits.In some people, NR lowers blood pressure and reduces arterial stiffness.Supplementation also tends to improve blood pressure and arterial health, particularly in those with mild hypertension, the study found.“This was the first ever study to give this novel compound to humans over a period of time,” said senior author Doug Seals, a professor and researcher in the Department of Integrative Physiology. “We found that it is well tolerated and appears to activate some of the same key biological pathways that calorie restriction does.”For the study, published in the journal Nature Communications, Seals and lead author Chris Martens, then a postdoctoral fellow at CU Boulder, included 24 lean and healthy men and women ages 55 to 79 from the Boulder area. Half were given a placebo for six weeks, then took a 500 mg twice-daily dose of nicotinamide riboside (NR) chloride (NIAGEN). The other half took NR for the first six weeks, followed by placebo.The researchers took blood samples and other physiological measurements at the end of each treatment period.Participants reported no serious adverse effects.The researchers found that 1,000 mg daily of NR boosted levels of another compound called nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) by 60 percent. NAD+ is required for activation of enzymes called sirtuins, which are largely credited with the beneficial effects of calorie restriction. It’s involved in a host of metabolic actions throughout the body, but it tends to decline with age. Research suggests that as an evolutionary survival mechanism, the body conserves NAD+ when subjected to calorie restriction. But only recently have scientists begun to explore the idea of supplementing with so-called “NAD+-precursors” like NR to promote healthy aging. center_img Nicotinomide riboside structural formula“The idea is that by supplementing older adults with NR, we are not only restoring something that is lost with aging (NAD+), but we could potentially be ramping up the activity of enzymes responsible for helping protect our bodies from stress,” Martens said.The new study also found that in 13 participants with elevated blood pressure or stage 1 hypertension (120–139/80–89 mmHg), systolic blood pressure was about 10 points lower after supplementation. A drop of that magnitude could translate to a 25 percent reduction in heart attack risk.“If this magnitude of systolic blood pressure reduction with NR supplementation is confirmed in a larger clinical trial, such an effect could have broad biomedical implications,” the authors note.Ultimately, the authors say, such CR-mimicking compounds could provide an additional option—alongside the dietary changes and exercise currently recommended—for people whose blood pressure is not yet high enough to warrant medication but who are still at risk for a heart attack.  They stress that the study was small and “pilot in nature.”“We are not able to make any definitive claims that this compound is safe or going to be effective for specific segments of the population,” said Martens, now an assistant professor at the University of Delaware. “What this paper provides us with is a really good stepping stone for future work.”Martens and Seals have applied for a grant to conduct a larger clinical trial looking specifically at the impact of NR supplementation on blood pressure and arterial health. Martens is also launching a separate trial looking at the impact NR has on older adults with mild cognitive impairment, a precursor to Alzheimer’s disease.The study was partially funded by grants from the National Institutes of Health and the American Federation for Aging Research. ChromaDex, the maker of NIAGEN provided supplements and some financial support.Categories:Health & SocietyNews Headlineslast_img read more

Baseball’s Beginnings

first_img Stay Connected with the Daily Roundup. Sign up for our newsletter and get the best of the Beacon delivered every day to your inbox. Email The brain trust in charge of America’s pastime has been consumed in recent years with improving what it calls baseball’s pace of play, implementing a wide-ranging initiative aimed at speeding up nine-inning contests, limiting interruptions in the action and shortening the overall length of games to something more palatable than the current three-plus hour average.But for all the newly introduced tweaks, baseball historian Rob Bauer still longs for the 90-minute or so games of years ago; many, many years ago.“I’m pretty sure that if I was playing or watching baseball in the 19th century, I would enjoy it more than I do now,” Bauer said with a smile from his office at Flathead Valley Community College last week.The 42-year-old professor and author will delve into baseball’s early pace of play successes, the exciting athletes who once dominated the diamond and the sport’s sometimes-unseemly history at a free public presentation, “The Boys of Summer are Back: A Celebration of Baseball History” on Thursday, April 12 at 7 p.m. in the library at FVCC, where Bauer has been the history department chair for the last eight years. The evening will include a question-and-answer session, a presentation of historic images and a nine-round trivia contest. Refreshments will also be provided.Once a prep baseball player in his native Lynnwood, Washington, Bauer completed his Ph.D at the University of Arkansas by writing an exhaustive 800-page dissertation on 19th-century baseball. Recognizing that the public appetite for 800-page history books was probably limited, Bauer has broken his research into a series of both fictionalized and non-fiction books on the largely unknown characters and circumstances that surrounded baseball’s birth as an organized sport. The first of those books was released in December and the third in the series, “Outside the Lines of Gilded Age Baseball: Gambling, Umpires and Racism in 1880s Baseball,” came out last month.Bauer admits his books’ subjects aren’t well known but says that’s partly what drew him to the topic in the first place.“I know, it’s pretty obscure,” he said. “But usually, when you read a baseball book, you get one of three things: you get a book on statistical analysis, or you get a biography of someone famous, or you get some special team that had a great season.”“My books are none of those things.”His books do feature some of the outstanding players of the era, like Hall of Famers Charlie Comiskey, Cap Anson and King Kelly, but they don’t obscure the shameful aspects of those early days, either. The 1880s saw baseball first become segregated – an effort Bauer said was led, at least in part, by Anson – and saw African Americans used exclusively as exotic team mascots. And those years also included a staggering amount of alcohol abuse in the sport. Bauer’s first book, “Outside the Lines of Gilded Age Baseball: Alcohol, Fitness and Cheating in 1880s Baseball,” recalls a team bringing a keg of beer to down during a doubleheader and players who would routinely compete while either drunk or hung over.“One guy drank, I think, 13 beers before the night he pitched in the World Series,” Bauer said. “You can guess how that went.”A fitness enthusiast himself, Bauer also explores the sometimes bizarre and wildly dangerous self-care regimens players subjected themselves to in order to stay healthy. He said one player tried using a branding iron to soothe a sore arm, and another jolted himself with enough electricity to knock him out of his chair while intending to heal an injury.“People would carry batteries around with them,” he added.Bauer’s research for the book was, and continues to be, extensive. He is a member of the Society of American Baseball Research (SABR), serving on that group’s 19th century research committee, and he read years’ worth of issues of the Sporting News and the Sporting Life, the two sports publications of record in the 1880s, while researching. He will be presenting to the Pacific Northwest chapter of SABR in June regarding some of the findings included in his books.In addition to the two “Outside the Lines” books, Bauer has written a partly fictionalized historical novel, “My Australian Adventure.” The novel chronicles a young African American orphan named Clarence Duval who becomes a mascot for two professional baseball teams on a world tour. A pair of follow-up books featuring Duval, “The World Traveler” and “The Buffalo Soldier,” are slated for release later this year, in addition to the third non-fiction book, “Outside the Lines of Gilded Age Baseball: The Origins of the 1890s Players League.”For more on Bauer and his works, visit www.robbauerbooks.com.

(Photo: JODI ZUROWSKI/ Z’s PHOTOTASTIC)The Monroe County Division III rivals split the season series with Brockport taking the first match 2-0 on August 31st. Brighton returned the favor on September 26th edging the Blue Devils, 3-2. That setback was Brockport’s first of the season.“That stayed right up here with these guys,” Zorn said pointing to his head.  “That might have given us a little incentive tonight.”With starting center back Caleb Peck nursing an injured hamstring, the Blue Devils made a lineup change.“We couldn’t have him not on the field,” Zorn explained. “We pushed him up into the middle where he didn’t have to make those recovery runs.”Both squads had taken separate turns climbing the polls during the season. Brighton (15-3-0) had won 11 straight at one point and matched the Blue Devils by reaching No. 3 in the NYS Class A rankings.  The Barons were playing Friday night without Gabriel Barraclough-Tan (nine goals and three assists).“He’s one of our playmakers in the middle,” Brighton head coach Adam Hiller said of his junior midfielder. “We had to shift some people around a little bit. All year we’ve been dealing with injuries. That’s what teams do. We just didn’t find a way to get it done today.”Connor McQuillan cut the deficit in half for Brighton with a goal in the 51st minute.
