Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion I was recently summoned to serve as a juror in Schenectady. The potential trail for this jury turned out to be a civil matter. It was settled out of court and the summoned were excused.After going through this process, I had several concerns. So I phoned the commissioner of jurors, Nicole M. Salamone and talked to her assistant about my concerns.She told me that Nicole may call me back. In about an hour, I received a call from Nicole. We had a nice conversation and it soon became apparent to me that this woman really cares about her responsibilities. She really wants to do the best job possible for the citizens of Schenectady County.I’m not easily impressed, but this woman is impressive. If we had more public servants like her, we could be in much better shape. Thanks, Nicole.Thomas SingerSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusMotorcyclist injured in Thursday afternoon Schenectady crashEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesSchenectady man dies following Cutler Street dirt bike crashFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?

National flag carrier Garuda Indonesia expects the domestic market to drive its business this year, which is showing signs of recovery despite the heavy blow to the aviation sector by COVID-19, the company’s top executive has said.Garuda president director Irfan Setiaputra told The Jakarta Post in an exclusive interview on Thursday that the company was currently exploring new opportunities in the domestic market, as it provides better opportunities than the international market during the ongoing health crisis.“During the recovery process, we agreed that the domestic market will be the driver. The reasoning behind the decision is that we have more control in the market in regard to the [industry] authorities,” he said, referring to the firm’s relationship with aviation stakeholders such as state-owned airport operator PT Angkasa Pura (AP) II. “The only way to accelerate recovery is by boosting [the number] of passengers.”The airline enjoyed an increase of 58.1 percent month-on-month (mom) in the number of domestic passengers to over 110,400 passengers in July, which the airline attributed to the relaxation of the large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) by the government.However, the airline saw an overall 61 percent drop year-on-year (yoy) in total numbers of passengers as of July this year, down to 3.6 million passengers, as the pandemic stymied the airline’s operations and hit its financial performance, with social restrictions and border closures deterring people from flying.The airline posted a US$712.73 million loss in the first half of this year after booking net profits of $24.11 million in the same period last year. Furthermore, Irfan said the company had recently found new opportunities in the domestic market, which had previously been overlooked by management, such as freight exports.“There are huge opportunities to work together with small businesses, fishermen and other industries to provide them with logistics services for exports. We hadn’t thought about that in recent years,” he said.However, while the freight business provides an additional source of income, Irfan said it was unlikely that the contribution would significantly improve its profitability as its main revenue is still dominated by the passenger business.AP II previously projected a full recovery of Indonesia’s aviation industry to occur by mid-2023, with domestic flights projected to be the backbone of the industry’s recovery process.The forecast is slightly more optimistic than that by the International Air Transport Association (IATA), which expects the full recovery of global air passenger traffic by 2024, a year later than its initial estimate, given slow virus containment in developing economies, corporate travel cuts and weak consumer confidence during the global health crisis.However, regarding the international flights market, Garuda will maintain its current routes and only expand its routes once the pandemic ends, Irfan said.“We will try to maintain our existing routes as best as we can, and ensure our international routes can reach breakeven point during normal times. We are also working together with all stakeholders to establish new routes, which will bring in high-spending tourists to Indonesia,” he said.Garuda currently has 22 international routes to 10 countries including China, Japan, Australia, Netherlands and Singapore, according to the company’s website.The total number of international passengers carried by the airline plunged by 96 percent yoy to 10,581 passengers in July.During a hearing with the House of Representatives earlier in July, Irfan said that the airline was mulling whether to establish direct flights that will connect the resort island of Bali with cities in the United States like Los Angeles and San Francisco and Indian cities like Mumbai and New Delhi, as well as with France.However, during the interview, Irfan said the company was still “miles away” from the expansion plan as it was currently still focusing on the recovery process.“We’ll get through this pandemic first. Once it’s all over, then we’ll talk about the [expansion] plan and how we work together with other stakeholders to boost our tourist sector,” he said.In a research note published on Wednesday, Lee Young Jun from Mirae Asset Sekuritas expected that the airline’s monthly seat load factor (SLF) would not exceed 50 percent, while its SLF stood at 30 percent in July, according to the company’s data.“Although the management claimed that the improvement should continue until the end of 2020, we believe that monthly SLF will not exceed 50 percent, given the fact that new COVID-19 cases are continuously hitting new records,” the research note reads.It expects the company to book $1.63 billion in revenue by 2020 year-end, a sharp drop from $4.5 billion last year.Topics :

One of the CMA’s proposed “remedies” for the fiduciary management sector was for providers to be required to report their performance track record to prospective customers using a standardised methodology.CFA Institute’s discussions with IC Select predate the CMA’s investigation and the Financial Conduct Authority’s asset management review, which led to the investigation. Cardano’s Ralph Frank also contributed to the discussions, having been working on his own methodology for fiduciary management analytics. “We were always going to do this because IC Select is a UK-based entity and, for them, maintaining this and ensuring its continuation is a large chunk of work,” said McAra.In addition, CFA Institute saw an opportunity to cover an area its framework for GIPS did not. The original standard IC Select developed was based on GIPS. The direction the CMA had taken meant it made more sense to pursue transferring the responsibility for the standard, said McAra.CFA Institute would like to retain the governance structure IC Select had set up for developing the standard and consultations, involving a steering group and a forum, both of which McAra chairs.Global reach?At the industry event – organised by the Transparency Task Force (TTF), a campaign group – McAra said CFA Institute “would anticipate” the standard being of use elsewhere in the world, and that it had already held discussions with US and Dutch stakeholders.The right language could make a single standard applicable globally even if regulatory requirements varied geographically, he said.“We’re all about making things level, constant, and comparable, both through timeframes and across the firms operating in those particular areas,” he added. “So a prospective client can take information from any person, any firm that claims compliance with this standard, look at them and know they have comparable information.”McAra told IPE he had spoken to fiduciary managers in the US and Netherlands who are aware of GIPS and the IC Select standard, and that the feedback was comparable to that received from UK fiduciary managers.“For those managers that are investing against asset-based benchmarks, then GIPS can be used as a standard for presenting their past performance to prospective investors,” he said. “For those implementing liability-driven investment [LDI] strategies, the IC Select standard provides a framework for generating composites that are relevant to prospective investors considering LDI strategies.”Carl Hitchman, head of fiduciary management advisory at Stamford Associates, also attended the TTF event, and later told IPE it was important there be some flexibility to avoid a situation where performance was quoted against an inappropriate benchmark.He noted that the IC Select standard as currently drafted directed fiduciary managers towards the GIPS approach if their benchmark was “a fixed asset split”, but said this opt-out did not reflect – as he understood the CMA’s intention – the requirement for a single standard to apply to all fiduciary managers. This article was updated on 31 January 2019 to amend the name of CFA Institute. CFA Institute is taking over responsibility for the fiduciary management performance standard that could satisfy a pending UK regulatory requirement facing providers of the service.The transfer of intellectual property rights from IC Select, which has developed the standard, was scheduled to complete at the end of June, Iain McAra, director of global investment performance standards (GIPS) at CFA Institute, told attendees at an industry event earlier this month.This was slightly earlier than initially envisaged given the timetable set out by the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) following its investigation into the investment consultancy and fiduciary management sectors.“The CMA’s agenda really wants everything wrapped up by mid-November,” McAra told IPE. “We had proposed that we complete the transfer by 1 January 2020, but we can accommodate that change.”
Unlike Sydney, Victoria’s past was put on full display through the strange, interwoven history between her, Weber and Pence — and it proved too good an opportunity for the producers to pass up. The situation makes “The Bachelor” producers seem like cruel, evil masterminds, and it’s easy to see why. However, at the end of the day, you could also argue that the producers are merely doing their jobs. They’re simply increasing ratings, and the easiest way to do that is by making things as dramatic as possible. So maybe the producers aren’t fully to blame, as they are just one part of a bigger problem: The show itself is rotten through and through. Peter Weber set out on “The Bachelor” with hopes of finally finding love and a future wife. Instead, he got an extremely disappointing result that left him back at square one. While there were a number of self-inflicted factors that influenced the outcome of this season, there was still an overarching presence behind the scenes that orchestrated the overall plot. This season, the producers showed that they never miss an opportunity to stir the pot. Their first bold act was to bring back Hannah Brown, who was fresh off a breakup with Weber from her season on “The Bachelorette,” on not one, but two instances. (Angie Yang | Daily Trojan) I’m referring to the ABC producers and their unceasing dedication to concoct as much drama as possible for audiences. The problem is that they did so at the expense of the contestants and especially Weber, who was constantly confused and overwhelmed by the tensions around him. Social media exploded when she stepped out of the limo on night one and then again when she returned to ruin Weber’s first group date. For him, it was a nightmare. The woman who rejected him and broke his heart spoiled the group date by breaking down and tearfully talking about what could have been. The producers’ first curveball was almost too much for Weber to handle as his demeanor hinted that he still wasn’t over Brown, but this drama is exactly what they were aiming for since it drew attention on social media. This further proves that the producers’ schemes overwhelmed Weber and left him confused and prone to making irrational decisions. With their extensive knowledge and research of each contestant, there was no way the producers were going to let such a major red flag slip through their fingers. The producers handpick the contestants for a reason, and in my opinion, they chose Victoria to be on the show because her controversy would create the notorious drama the show embodies. It’s possible that the producers were responsible for Peter’s unfortunate ending, as they added plenty of twists to this season, but a deeper look at the bigger picture once again exposes the dark reality of “The Bachelor” and its manipulation of people in the name of “good TV.” Although there might not be any solid evidence showing that the producers were trying to haunt Weber with Brown, it’s also hard to argue in support of the idea that this connection was a mere coincidence. In light of the producers’ ability to mix things up in unexpected ways and Weber’s soft spot for Brown, it’s possible that the producers were trying to develop an intriguing storyline between Brown and Hightower. However, Hightower was sent home before Weber ever learned of her link to Brown. But that’s not all that the producers did to Victoria. They pulled an even bigger wild card later in the season by using one of Peter’s ex-girlfriends, Merissa Pence, who happened to know Victoria (what a surprise). Pence told Weber that Victoria was responsible for ending multiple relationships among their friend group, which came as a major shock to Peter. Of all the contestants, I felt that Victoria was manipulated the most by the producers. They first wronged her by setting up a one-on-one date between her and Peter at a special concert with country singer Chase Rice, who, by no coincidence, happened to be her ex-boyfriend. While that was the last time we heard from Brown on the show, there was a third possible awkward scenario she was involved in. A former classmate of Brown’s revealed on Twitter that contestant Sydney Hightower went to high school with Brown. While Hightower’s past didn’t come into play, Victoria Fuller’s history played a huge role in her relationship with Peter and further demonstrates the producers’ uncanny ability to make things awkward for everyone. Victoria had seemingly developed a good rapport with Peter, but their relationship was clearly not meant to last even though she was among the final three. When she realized she would have to be seen front and center with her new boyfriend in front of Rice, she must have felt extremely uncomfortable. I’m sure Rice felt the same, as he was also blindsided by the encounter. Harrison Cho is a sophomore writing about “The Bachelor” and American pop culture. His column, “Rosechasing,” typically runs every other Friday.
We’ll keep it simple — the prospects for a highly successful Badger basketball team weren’t great before the 2019-20 season. With departing superstars and a relatively lackluster recruiting compared to what the team has to look forward to in the next two years, it remained to be seen who could step up to the plate for a Badger team in clear need of a spark after remaining well outside of the nation’s top 25 teams. Yet the Badgers have a clear chance to get off to, if nothing else, a promising start to their non-conference play in the beginning of the season. This is utterly necessary for the team if they are to build momentum and confidence prior to conference play as the Big Ten is especially top heavy in talent this year. Both Michigan State and Maryland rank inside the top 10 teams in the nation and The Ohio State University is also No. 17. Men’s Basketball: Familiar faces absent in upcoming 2019-20 installment of Wisconsin-Marquette matchupThe University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team (2-1) is set for an in-state rivalry matchup against the Marquette Golden Eagles Read…With a defining win against McNeese State already in the books, the Badgers officially secured a spot in the championship rounds of the Legends Classic tournament later this month. The tournament is comprised of eight total teams, four of which were eliminated in regular season games prior to the start of the tournament. The four teams remaining are Wisconsin, New Mexico State, Richmond and — most importantly for Wisconsin’s non-conference schedule — Auburn. Auburn is currently No. 22 in the nation, a ranking in close vicinity to current No. 18 ranked St. Mary’s. The Badgers already demonstrated their ability to compete with St. Mary’s earlier in the season when they took the Gaels to overtime in their first non-exhibition competition of the year. To reach Auburn, the Badgers will first have to find a way to beat Richmond. Richmond limped its way to a 2-0 record with consecutive overtime wins against St. Francis University and Vanderbilt. Neither of these teams that Richmond defeated are ranked inside the top 25, but Vanderbilt showed promise as they dominated their opening non-conference opponents by a combined score of 154–131. The moral of the story is, Richmond remains largely untested. And the competitions they have undergone — given their overtime finishes — provide little insight as to their ability to hang with the best. Even with close contests on their record, Richmond’s games have all been barn burners. They currently rank seventh in the nation in average scoring with 96.5 points scored per game. Men’s Basketball: Badgers find new identity as season beginsThe absence of Ethan Happ is conjuring up many questions about the future of the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball Read…If the Badgers stick to their guns and compete in the manner they did against top teams such as St. Mary’s, they should have another good shot at taking down a ranked opponent in Auburn. After their potential contest against Auburn, the Badgers have just one more non-conference game before opening Big Ten play at the Kohl Center vs. the Indiana Hoosiers. With St. Mary’s now in the past, Auburn presents their last chance to take down a ranked opponent prior to beginning competition in a top-heavy Big Ten field of opponents. If the Badgers are to prove their mettle and garner consideration as a top team, this is their last chance to do so before being thrown into flames. With that being said, let’s take a way-too early look at what an Auburn-Wisconsin matchup might look like. Auburn was an undeniably elite team last season. A February heater propelled them to a high seed in the NCAA tournament that propelled them all the way to the Final Four. While the Tigers eventually lost to a clutch set of free throws from Kyle Guy, they proved themselves to be a top contender in collegiate basketball. But the Tigers are missing key offensive producers that helped carry them deep into the tournament. Both Jared Harper and Bryce Brown, two of the top shooters in the nation, turned pro following the 2018-19 season. Men’s Basketball: Reuvers, Davison not enough to secure victory in heartbreaking season openerIn their first game of the season, the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team lost in heartbreaking fashion in overtime Read…Perhaps even more of an opportunity to exploit is the departure of key defensemen for the Tigers. Chuma Okeke, Malik Dunbar and Horace Spencer are all absent from this year’s Tiger squad. Each member of this trio contributed to a stifling Auburn defense that ranked second in the nation in forced turnover rate. Holes exist in the game of the No. 22 Tigers — it’s up to the Badgers to both have a chance to compete against them and then find a way to exploit these weaknesses. While this potential matchup is certainly not a guarantee, it is the last chance for Wisconsin to capture a win against a ranked opponent before conference play. A win in this scenario could give legitimacy to a team that, for all intents and purposes, had been counted out as a team that could consistently challenge the upper echelon of college basketball.

by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow â€” A legacy is defined as something that is handed down by a predecessor from a previous generation to another. If someone was to invent a time machine and visit a young Maxine in the 1930s or 40s, she may be surprised one of her legacies would be the collection of her handkerchiefs.Maxine HeastyMaxine (Stocking) Heasty of Mayfield died on Aug. 3, 2013 at the age of 96. She left behind three sons, six grandchildren and five great grandchildren. She also left behind an impressive array of handkerchiefs, which is now on display at the Wellington Public Library.“100 years of handkerchiefs,” is a story in itself, marking some of the nation’s historical moments and fads throughout a century of nose blowing. Unbeknownst to her family, Maxine would collect and save handkerchiefs. Why? Even the family is not quite sure. But today it is a tremendous display of an era gone by.Not so long ago, before paper Kleenexes took over the world, a woman would carry a handkerchief in her purse. It was a mom’s duty. Junior would have a runny nose or Suzie spilled ice cream on her Sunday dress, out would come the handkerchief. It was second nature to the World War I and II generation.Daryl Heasty, one of Maxine’s son, guessed a handkerchief, would cost about a nickel, and his mom always had one around. What he didn’t know, she never threw one away either â€” or a least the special ones.This collection of handkerchiefs was lost on the family until just recently when Mary Heasty, Terry’s wife and Maxine’s daughter in law, made a startling discovery. Mary was going through Maxine’s closets trying to get rid of non-essential items. In her pursuit of the cleaning task, she came across over 150 handkerchiefs in a cardboard box. They ranged from the earliest part of the century. There were some from World War 1 and World War II. Many were commemorative, and some were hand stitched.“It was like a treasure hunt for me,” Mary said about the discovery. “The colors are still brilliant as the day they were made.”Mary also discovered some of these handkerchiefs are worth some money. She went online and discovered, a handkerchief in that box, probably sold for a nickel, but can fetch up to $40 today. Yes, old-timers, you can hit your forehead with your palm now.Mary said she washed some of the handkerchiefs in delicate mode in the washing machine, but started to see some of the color run out of some of the pieces of cloth, so she stopped. This wasn’t your average collection.The Heasty family decided this was something the Sumner County community needed to see, as a way to remember Maxine and the kind of person she was. A sample of those handkerchiefs are on display at the public library for at least a month – through November.Maxine had lived in the Mayfield area her whole life. She graduated from Wellington High School in 1934. She would teach grade school at Mayfield for two years and in Sumner County for 35 years. She married Gene Heasty in 1945, and had her three sons Larry, Terry and Daryl.How many handkerchiefs she used to wipe up the messes of those three boys, even she probably could not say. But those handkerchiefs are now a legacy to a generation of purse less, cell-phone carrying, Puff kleenex nose blowing citizens, who never had to worry about carrying around a handkerchief.Unlucky us.
