The sale will be held in the Student Center Atrium from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.Brown said many of the events will be held on campus to show off the College.“We wanted to keep it on campus, or as close to campus as possible, so the events, our two big events, are held at the Hilton,” Helmle said. “We really wanted to showcase our campus and show how nice our school really is.”Students and moms will have the chance to participate in a tie-dye event from 10 a.m. to noon in Conference Room C in the Student Center and a scavenger hunt, which takes place around campus.

Hymans questions UK government’s notion of pension board ‘expertise’

first_imgIt also raised concerns that many of those deemed to have sufficient experience could be excluded by virtue of being elected members, who would not be allowed as scheme member or employer representatives.“Whether through guidance or the regulations,” the response continued, “we would like to see the definition of experience and capacity worded in such a way so as to strike the balance between ensuring people of suitable ability are appointed without setting so onerous a threshold such that administering authorities are unable to populate their boards.”However, a second response warned that time was of the essence in clarifying all required details, as the proposed LGPS (Amendment) Regulations 2014 are set to come into effect from 1 October.Lauren Jackson, associate at law firm Sackers, said clarity from the DCLG would be required soon.She said that while the draft regulations said pension funds would be able to convert the existing pensions committees into the new boards, all such conversions would require approval from the secretary of state for communities, Eric Pickles.“We do not currently know what this is going to mean in practice, and also how easy it will be to get agreement,” Jackson said.“It may be that this issue will be addressed in more detailed guidance, but, until it is, it will be difficult for administering authorities to make decisions.“Given the potential challenges of getting arrangements in place before 1 April 2015, time is running out.” Regulation proposing UK local authority pension board members possess the requisite experience for the role could prove problematic, Hymans Robertson has warned.The consultancy said proposals for new board members of local government pension schemes (LGPS) to have the “capacity and expertise” for the role was proving “unpopular in some quarters”.While arguing that it would view both requirements as welcome when considering appointments, it raised concerns about the lack of definition as to what would make an appointee experienced.“Clearly, some experience of pension schemes would be useful for a pension board member, but if the expectation is set too high, it will make it impossible to fulfil,” the response to the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) said.last_img read more

Yelich, Puig, Astudillo: Ranking the five coolest things from Monday’s MLB action

He had good karma coming his way.While Yelich’s outburst was certainly the highlight of the night, there were many notable moments in an action-packed set of games.MORE: Watch ‘ChangeUp,’ a new MLB live whiparound show on DAZNLet’s rank the best things we saw on Monday, April 15.5. Clayton Kershaw is back — and looking goodThe Dodgers’ ace made his first start of the season, and after allowing a first-inning home run settled in to go seven innings with six strikeouts. That was a welcome sight for Los Angeles, which has had plenty of offense to start the season but could use its top arm delivering quality starts on a regular basis.Kershaw’s fastball topped out at a tick over 91 mph, and he stayed around 90 mph for most of his outing. The velocity will be something to watch as he settles into the campaign. He was also removed after 84 pitches, presumably to avoid overworking him in his regular-season debut.4.

Yasiel Puig launches first-inning home run against DodgersIn the most dramatic moment of the night, Puig lifted his helmet to the crowd to acknowledge an ovation before his first at-bat. It was, after all, his first appearance in Los Angeles since being traded to the Reds. At this point, the Cardinals have no business pitching to Christian Yelich, the reigning MVP who looks even better to start the 2019 season.He entered Monday with four home runs in four matchups against St. Louis this season. He added three more long balls and seven RBIs against his rival in a 10-7 Brewers victory.last_img read more
