Dream Riders journey for justice

first_imgProtest on the steps of the Alabama Capitol building by Dream Riders, Alabama NAACP and Alabama Coalition for Immigrant Justice.Photo: Dream Riders Across AmericaA multinational group of young people, Dream Riders Across America, marched and rallied on Aug. 3 in Montgomery, Ala., as part of their journey to fight for immigrant rights and oppose racism. On the state Capitol steps, the Dreamers joined with the Alabama Coalition for Immigrant Justice and the Alabama NAACP to affirm their dedication to “a unified progressive network of young people, immigrants, and communities of color.” (Dream Riders Across America, Aug. 4)The Dreamers, most of them now or previously undocumented, are Latino/a, Asian and African American. They come from Thailand, Pakistan, Vietnam, Korea, Mexico, the U.S. and other countries.Traveling by bus from July 27 to Aug. 7, the Dreamers spoke at cities throughout the immigrant rights “battleground states” of the U.S. South — from Washington, D.C., and Virginia to North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Louisiana and Texas. The ride was sponsored by the National Korean American Service & Education Consortium, the Service Employees Union and affiliated groups.Alease Wilson, a Dream Rider from Los Angeles, was adamant that racism directed at undocumented immigrants is inextricably linked to the racism aimed at all people of color. She said, “I’m joining the bus tour because I don’t want my brother to be the next Michael Brown.” Brown was the African-American teenager whose killing by Ferguson, Mo., police led to uprisings around the country against racist violence by state and city police. (dreamriders.us/press, July 30)The Alabama NAACP participation with the Dreamers was part of a national NAACP Journey for Justice, an 860-mile march from Selma, Ala., to Washington, D.C., to focus attention and mobilize action to fight for “a fair criminal justice system, uncorrupted and unfettered access to the ballot box, sustainable jobs with a living wage, and equitable public education.” (NAACP.org/ajfj)The Journey for Justice began Aug. 1 on the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act. The act was won by the African-American Civil Rights Movement through many bloody and sacrificial struggles, such as the brutal assault on marchers in 1965 on the Pettus Bridge.The Voting Rights Act and access to the ballot by people of color and low-income and working-class people is now under heavy attack by right-wing forces. The marchers plan to arrive in Washington on Sept. 11 after 40 days and nights of “old-school marching” with town rallies and conversations along the way.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_img By Hoosier Ag Today – Jun 28, 2017 SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News BPI Settles With ABC over Pink Slime Lawsuit BPI Settles With ABC over Pink Slime Lawsuit SHARE Beef Products Inc. and ABC News have reached a settlement in a lawsuit over ABC’s use of the term pink slime. No terms of the settlement have been disclosed, but BPI announced Wednesday morning that the company was “extraordinarily pleased” to have reached a settlement. ABC also released a statement, saying, “ABC has reached an amicable resolution of its dispute with the makers of lean finely textured beef.” BPI was suing the network and a lead reporter in a $1.9 billion case over ABC’s series of reports in spring 2012 that raised questions about lean finely textured beef’s suitability for human consumption.BPI closed three of four processing plants and laid off some 700 people in March 2012 after demand for lean finely textured beef plummeted.Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter Previous articleUSDA Seeking Public Input on GMO LabelingNext articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for June 29, 2017 Hoosier Ag Todaylast_img read more

Große Finanzunternehmen setzen die bahnbrechende Kausale-KI-Plattform von causaLens ein, um wichtige kausale Erkenntnisse zu…

first_img Twitter TAGS  By Digital AIM Web Support – February 3, 2021 Facebook LONDON, Vereinigtes Königreich–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 3, 2021– Die weltweit erste Kausale-KI-Plattform, die von dem Deep Tech Scale Up causaLens entwickelte wurde, wird von Finanzdienstleistern genutzt (darunter Aviva Investors, 2IQ, TIAA, CLS Group sowie eine Vielzahl prominenter Hedgefonds), um automatisch wertvolle kausale Erkenntnisse aus Finanzdaten zu extrahieren und die Profitabilität ihrer Handelsstrategien zu steigern. Diese Pressemitteilung enthält multimediale Inhalte. Die vollständige Mitteilung hier ansehen: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210203005833/de/ causaLens’ new website (Photo: Business Wire) Die Finanzdienstleistungsbranche ist darauf angewiesen, die wahren Treiber dynamischer Märkte zu verstehen. Doch können die aktuellen KI-Systeme nur Korrelationen erkennen. Diese Kurvenanpassungen generierenden Maschinen sind nicht skalierbar, erfordern teure und nur schwer zusammenstellbare Teams von Datenwissenschaftlern, bieten nur eine begrenzte Erklärbarkeit und funktionieren letztlich nicht gut für die Finanzmärkte. Causal AI (kausale KI) ist eine völlig neue Art des maschinellen Lernens (ML), die uns einen Schritt näher bringt zu wirklich intelligenten Maschinen. Sie kann Ursache und Wirkung verstehen, intuitiv menschliches Wissen einbeziehen, optimale Interventionen entwerfen und sich kontrafaktische Szenarien vorstellen – all das hilft bei der Strategie- und Entscheidungsfindung. Darüber hinaus zeigt sie eine überlegene Leistung bei konventionellen Prognoseaufgaben, da sie sich nachweislich dreimal schneller an neue Marktbedingungen anpasst als aktuelle ML-Technologie. Michael Grady, Head of Investment Strategy und Chief Economist bei Aviva Investors, erläutert die Zusammenarbeit der Vermögensverwaltung mit causaLens: „Causal AI (kausale KI) spielt eine immer wichtigere Rolle bei unserer Anlageanalyse. Sie versetzt unsere Strategen und Portfoliomanager in die Lage, Alpha zu generieren, indem sie neue kausale Zusammenhänge in Wirtschafts-, Finanz- und alternativen Daten identifizieren – mit ausgefeilten, adaptiven und erklärbaren Modellen, die nicht unter Überanpassung leiden.“ Masami Johnston, Head of Information Services bei CLS Group, erklärte: „Mit Causal AI (kausale KI) können wir signifikante und unerwartete Veränderungen von Schlüsselfaktoren im Zusammenhang mit den Devisenmärkten identifizieren, wodurch wir rasch auf Marktbedingungen reagieren und Anlagestrategien verbessern können.“ Darko Matovski, CEO und Mitbegründer von causaLens kommentierte: „Wir haben im Jahr 2017 Pionierarbeit im Bereich automatisiertes maschinelles Lernen (AutoML) für Zeitreihendaten geleistet und haben unseren Kunden einen immensen Mehrwert in Bezug auf Leistung und Kosteneinsparungen gebracht. Wir sind stolz darauf, nun die nächste Stufe der Intelligenz auf den Markt gebracht zu haben. Mit Counterfactual und Interventional Reasoning, einzigartige Merkmale von Causal AI (kausale KI), erreichen unsere Kunden, ein höheres Maß an Automatisierung und Intelligenz, als dies bisher möglich war, was zu einem höheren ROI führt. Zudem haben wir unser Angebot über Zeitreihendaten hinaus erweitert.“ Weitere Anwendungsfälle, Whitepapers und Demonstrationen von Causal AI finden Sie auf der neuen causaLens-Website.

There’s “lots of runway in real estate”: Blackstone’s Jon Gray

first_img Blackstone Group Blackstone’s Jon Gray (Getty)Blackstone Group’s president and COO Jon Gray thinks higher inflation is on the way, and he thinks risky real estate investments could be the antidote for investors.“What we’re trying to do is position ourselves for things that look and feel [the] least bond-like as much as possible,” Gray said Thursday during the investment giant’s first-quarter earnings call.Gray said safe but low-yielding investments, such as fully leased office properties, are less attractive in an environment where investors are seeking higher yields. But plays like multifamily rental buildings in markets primed for job growth, on the other hand, will provide the kinds of returns Blackstone and its investors are after.Read moreHow Blackstone keeps its upper hand in a crisisBlackstone eyes new 1M sf NYC headquartersBlackstone bets big on life-science buildings with $14.6B deal “That’s how we’re trying to prepare ourselves for what we do think will be a higher inflationary environment,” he said, adding that there’s still “lots of runway in real estate” — the segment of Blackstone’s business that produces nearly half of the company’s fee-related earnings.“I think we’re early days in the buildout of that,” he added.Blackstone recorded net income of $3.37 billion for the first quarter, up a whopping 230 percent from a loss of $2.6 billion during the first quarter of last year. Gray said the alternative asset manager is spending now in preparation for a post-Covid economic recovery, pointing to recent acquisitions like a private aviation business, a holiday park operator in the United Kingdom, and the firm’s recent deal to buy hotel operator Extended Stay America with Starwood Capital Group for $6 billion.“As the economy reopens, we think the combination of increased consumer savings, fiscal stimulus and global cabin fever will be powerful,” he said.Contact Rich Bockmann Message* Email Address* Full Name* Share via Shortlink Tags Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlinklast_img read more

Santos, Carnarvon launch pre-FEED process for Dorado field FPSO

first_img Santos, Carnarvon select three contractors for pre-FEED of Dorado field FPSO. (Credit: Angelo Esslinger from Pixabay) Santos and Carnarvon Petroleum have launched a competitive pre-front end engineering design (pre-FEED design) competition for the floating production storage and offtake (FPSO) vessel of the Dorado field development.The Dorado field is located within the WA-437-P permit in the North-West Shelf of Australia. Santos is the operator with an 80% stake, while Carnarvon Petroleum holds the remaining 20% stake.FID on Dorado field likely to be taken in 2021The joint venture partners are targeting to take a final investment decision (FID) on the Dorado field development for 2021, subject to market conditions.Carnarvon Petroleum said that pre-FEED contracts were given recently to three major contractors. As per the terms of the contracts, the awarded parties will independently work to push ahead with their FPSO designs and mature their construction plans and supply terms of the vessel.According to Carnarvon Petroleum, the award of the contracts will help the joint venture to stick to the project schedule, while the pre-FEED process is expected to help determine the contracting strategy for the FPSO.The company said that one of the three pre-FEED contractors will be selected at the end of the pre-FEED stage to start the formal FEED work for the Dorado field FPSO. The award of the FEED contract is likely to be announced later this year.Furthermore, by engaging three contractors to separately carry out the engineering and design work, the joint venture will be in a position to consider the optimal technical design, cost and schedule for the provision of the vessel.Carnarvon Petroleum also revealed that a significant number of firms have submitted their expressions of interest (EOI) for the fixed wellhead platform (WHP) that will support the production and ancillary wells.The company said that shortlisted contractors will be invited soon to tender for all or relevant parts of the work pertaining to the wellhead platform that includes engineering and design, fabrication of jacket and topsides, and transport and installation into the Dorado field.Carnarvon Petroleum managing director Adrian Cook said: “The award of the pre-FEED contracts for the supply of an FPSO is a significant step and demonstrates the momentum which is building within the Dorado development project. This is testament to the quality of the project as we have the confidence to enter the next phase of development during this short period of uncertainty.” The Dorado field is located within the WA-437-P permit in the North-West Shelf of Australialast_img read more

Court of Appeals Upholds Darmstadt Apartment Complex

first_imgThe law firm of Jackson Kelly, PLLC represents CWK Investments and Mr. Kinney in all of these matters, including the most recent litigation before the Indiana Court of Appeals which found in favor of Mr. Kinney and CWK. The decision upholds the trial court’s decision which found the planned apartment complex was properly zoned on the southeast side of Darmstadt. As a result of the ruling the development company may proceed with construction of four apartment buildings containing approximately 350 apartment units (175 two-bedroom units and 175 three-bedroom units) on a 28-acre development. Today the Indiana Court of Appeals upheld a trial court’s dismissal of Darmstadt’s lawsuit against CWK Investments-Hillsdale, LLC (owned by Wayne Kinney). The court dismissed the suit on procedural grounds—Darmstadt failed to file its suit within the time required under state law. A copy of the decision is available here: http://publicaccess.courts.in.gov/Appellate/Document?id=2af339e4-5f4a-443b-aafa-dcbff1bff5b8 FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare Separately, CWK Investments filed suit in 2017 against Darmstadt and its Town Council members for violating the Fair Housing Act (FHA) by discriminating against minorities and multi-family residents. The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana, remains ongoing and charges that Darmstadt and its Town Council violated the FHA and discriminated against minorities by imposing requirements on affordable multi-family housing often used by racial minorities that they did not impose on single-family developments more frequently used by white residents. According to 2010 census data, Darmstadt is 97% white. In 2000 census data, Darmstadt was 99% white. By denying Mr. Kinney’s permit to build affordable housing, Darmstadt perpetuates segregated housing patterns and denies minorities the opportunity to seek affordable housing.last_img read more
