Malcolm Calvert drops appeal against insider dealing conviction

first_img MALCOLM Calvert, the ex-Cazenove partner released from jail earlier this month after serving just a third of his 21-month sentence for insider dealing, has dropped his appeal against the High Court’s conviction, bringing to a close the most high-profile enforcement case in the City regulator’s history.Calvert, known as “Streaky”, was released from Ford prison thanks to good behaviour after serving less than seven months of his sentence, though he continues to have to wear an electronic tagging device.At the time of his release, appeals against his sentence were still pending, but they have now been dropped, meaning that he will have to pay £50,000 towards the Financial Services Authority’s (FSA) legal costs and a fine of almost £475,000.

New Zealand take Gold yet again at the Commonwealth Games Sevens

first_imgFriday Oct 15, 2010 New Zealand take Gold yet again at the Commonwealth Games Sevens New Zealand came back from being 7-17 down to beat Australia 24-17 as they took gold at the Commonwealth Games Sevens tournament in Delhi, sealing the win with a later try to Kurt Baker.Despite trailing, New Zealand captain DJ Forbes said they never panicked. “We were down but never out. In Sevens, it’s not really tough to upturn such a slender margin. After having won this tournament three times in a row, there is always big pressure. Going through the way we did is great.”Its an impressive fourth consecutive Gold medal at the games. “We were under pressure but we saw through it. Well, it’s fourth for the team but for me, it’s the first. Makes it all the more exciting,” said try scorer Baker.They’ve now not lost a match since they first won the inaugural tournament in Kuala Lumpur in 1998. They went on to win in Manchester, then Melbourne, and now Delhi.South Africa won bronze with a 17-14 victory over England. Fiji were unfortunately not in the tournament, as they had been suspended by the Commonwealth for political reasons.The Australians didnt come out tops but a few of their players have impressed enough to be included in the Wallabies 36-man touring squad to play the All Blacks in Hong Kong and then tour Europe.Lachie Turner, Luke Morahan, Pat McCutcheon, and Nick Phipps have been selected for the tour where after facing the All Blacks, they will go up against Wales, Leicester, Munster, England, France, and Italy. The squad will be reduced to 30 for the latter two games.

She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com.center_img  135 total views,  1 views today A Wild in Art Snowdog Art Trail will take place in Cardiff this autumn, to raise funds for children’s charity Tŷ Hafan.For ten weeks, the 1.5m sculptures, inspired by the animated film The Snowman™ and The Snowdog, will appear across the city on the Snowdogs: Tails in Wales trail before being sold at auction for Tŷ Hafan, which supports life-limited children. The charity is also asking businesses and members of the public across south Wales to sponsor a Snowdog while trail of smaller “puppy” sculptures will be decorated by local schoolchildren, and sponsored by schools and local businesses.Wild in Art embarked on a three-year partnership at the end of 2015 with Penguin Ventures to bring art trails featuring 1.5m tall Snowdog sculptures to Britain’s cities. Last September, Snowdogs went to Brighton & Hove, as well as Newcastle and Tyne & Wear. In Brighton, Snowdogs by the Sea raised funds for local charity, the Martlets Hospice with a trail of 45 individually designed sculptures as well as a pack of smaller-scale puppies. Great North Snowdogs saw around 60 large-scale sculptures and 100 little Snowdogs fundraise for St Oswald’s Hospice.Snowdogs by the Sea © MartletsFollowing the trails, the auctions of the 104 giant sculptures raised almost £600,000 for the charities in total. A Royal Pavilion interior-inspired Snowdog called ‘Max’ designed by Sarah Arnett reached £22,000 at the Brighton auction, while a mosaic glitter ball ‘Disco Dog’ by Natalie Guy in Gateshead raised £9,200. Research also showed that 275,000 visitors to the trails made one-off charity donations.Wild in Art has a number of other charity art trails taking place this year: The Big Sleuth with Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity; Lincoln Knights’ Trail with Lincoln Business Improvement Group and The Nomad Trust; The BIG Stampede with Hamilton BID and Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity; Sitting with Jane with Destination Basingstoke and Ark Cancer Centre Charity; and Read Manchester BookBenches with the National Literacy Trust and Manchester City Council.Charlie Langhorne, director of Wild in Art said:“Brighton was the obvious choice for one of our first Snowdog Art Trails as it features in The Snowman film as an iconic animated sequence. Author and illustrator of The Snowman book, Raymond Briggs lives nearby and Brighton is also my hometown.“Wild in Art was also keen to spread the impact of its popular art trails across the UK and identified the North East as an area in which it had not undertaken much work. Similarly this year, Snowdogs: Tails in Wales will be the first time we have worked in Cardiff.“Having decided on the areas, we approach charities about being partners. Community is at the heart of Wild in Art projects and we work with charities that are well-respected and well-loved in their local communities.”Main image: Great North Snowdogs  © Lee Gibbins Photography Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1last_img read more

As president, he must ensure the safety of all of his fellow citizens, including journalists.“We also call on the president to rescind the 22 November decree granting himself extraordinary powers, and not hold a referendum on the draft constitution in its current form. The Constituent Commission must amend the draft in order to provide more protection for freedom of expression and information.”A witness told Reporters Without Borders that Morsi supporters deliberately targeted Deif, who works for the newspaper Al-Fagr. Five minutes before he was shot from a distance of just two metres, he showed colleagues photos of the president’s supporters with sophisticated weapons. His camera was stolen after he was shot, as colleagues went to his aid.Other journalists were injured during the night as they covered the clashes. They included Mohamed Azouz of the government newspaper Al-Gomhuria, Osama Al-Shazly of the daily Al-Badil, Islam Abdel Tawab of Al-Alam Al-Yawm, Sahar Talaat, a correspondent for Radio France Internationale’s Spanish service and Ahmed Khair Eldeen, a ON-TV journalist.Two journalists with Turkey’s TRT television, reporter Mehmet Akif Ersoy and cameraman Adil Ahmet, were attacked earlier yesterday in Tahrir Square and their equipment was damaged.
