JERSEY CITY BRIEFS

first_imgRUNNING TO GOOD HEALTH – Dr. Meika Roberson, chief medical officer at CarePoint Health, recently completed her first five-kilometer run at Liberty State Park in Jersey City in 27 minutes 23 seconds. Statewide, the new formula would increase school funding by $181 million, with $25 million allocated to expand pre-k and kindergarten. Total state aid to public school districts totals over $9 billion, nearly a third of the overall state budget.The new budget brings funding to more than 300 of New Jersey’s 584 school districts that have been perpetually underfunded since Christie signed the last funding formula law in 2008. Still, despite the additional funding an estimated $2 billion gap remains between what the law required and the amount that was actually allocated.Despite many Hudson County politicians’ urge for more funding for urban school districts, not all municipalities in the county will benefit. Jersey City would suffer a 2 percent reduction, or about $8.4 million.The Jersey City Board of Education – which hopes to pass a modified budget on Aug. 1 – is apparently working with the City of Jersey City to make up for the loss.The district apparently will seek a $5.5 million refund that the state Department of Education overcharged the district for charter schools. Meanwhile, the city hopes to develop a shared services program with the district that will save another $2.5 million. The money would come out of the city’s 2018 budget and be applied to the school district’s 2017-2018 budget.Hoboken would also lose out to the tune of a 7.7 percent decrease, or about $825,000. Weehawken funding would decrease by about the same percentage.Meanwhile, Bayonne will receive six percent more than Christie’s “Fairness Formula,” which he introduced earlier this year, much to the chagrin of many urban school districts. Bayonne’s total increase amounts to $3.2 million, a partial but much-needed reprieve from the district’s $6 million budget deficit unearthed in November of 2016.Union City will get a 1.2 percent increase, or $2.1 million. Secaucus will receive a 13.1 percent increase, or $131,132. Guttenberg will also receive a roughly 13 percent increase for roughly $688,000. North Bergen will receive 2.2 percent, or $1.2 million. West New York will receive a 1.2 percent increase, for about $1.5 million.More veterans’ housing approvedAs his administration continues to expand housing and services for veterans, Mayor Steven Fulop announced this week that plans for a new 20-unit veterans housing development on Ocean Avenue are underway after a unanimous 9-0 vote by the Planning Board.The project, which is being developed by Terzetto NJ LLC, a female-owned Jersey City small business, is the second of its kind being advanced by the Fulop administration. The mixed-use, mixed-income building on Ocean Avenue near Bidwell Avenue will be all veterans priority housing and includes three units for homeless veterans, six low-income units, and 11 market rate units.“We made a pledge to end veterans’ homelessness and with this second project we are one step closer,” said Mayor Fulop. “These men and women served our country and we as a community should be working to assist them and ensure that they receive all of the resources possible. I look forward to seeing this plan move forward and for cutting the ribbon on this important project.”Terzetto is also working with Community Hope to provide supportive services to the homeless veterans and the Curtis Group who provides vocational training geared specifically toward veterans and is seeking a complimentary, full-time, non-profit organization to be housed at the building.The Fulop administration has made veterans housing a priority, building the first ever housing for homeless veterans and answering First Lady Michelle Obama’s commitment to end veteran homelessness. In collaboration with the Hudson County Building Trades the administration cut the ribbon on 34 units of veterans housing last year on Ocean Avenue.Kennedy Dancers’ cat returnedKaty, the Kennedy Dancers’ cat that went missing last week, was returned after a local vet recognized the animal when brought in for treatment.The 14-year-old catch vanished from outside the Central Avenue studio earlier this month. Video footage showed a woman and two boys with the cat. They apparently thought the cat was sick and brought the animal to a local vet for treatment.Kennedy Dancers to perform in Summer DanceFest on ThursdaysThe Kennedy Dancers Repertory Company, a professional non-profit dance company based in Jersey City, will perform in Summer Dance, sponsored by the City of Jersey City Department of Cultural Affairs, on Thursday July 27 and Aug. 3 from 6:30 to 8 p.m.at the J. Owen Grundy Pier, at the foot of Exchange Place, Jersey City.Performances are FREE to the public.The summer concert series will feature new repertory pieces. “Dancing with Duke Ellington” is an homage to the music sound and style of the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s and includes “Take the A Train,” “Black Beauty,” “Don’t Get Around Much Anymore,” “In a Sentimental Mood,” and “It Don’t Mean a Thing.”Choreography is by artistic Director Diane Dragone with contributing choreographies by Bong Dizon and Eli Cano.Other works will include “Wild Women of the 20th Century” choreographed by Dragone, celebrating Carmen Miranda, Josephine Baker, and Little Egypt. The evening includes performances by the Kennedy Dancers Inner City Youth, a teen peer-professional company with several teens from ages 11-28, scholarship students who study 10 hours of dance weekly, and also repertory choreographies of the Kennedy Dancers Repertory Company.The Kennedy Dancers is a non-profit Jersey City Based Professional, American Dance Company established in 1976 with a mission of bringing high quality dance training and professional performance opportunities to the NY/NJ Metro area. Since its inception, the company has grown to respond to the community’s special needs serving low income/at risk/incarcerated teens/senior citizens through diverse dance classes offering fun/fitness/performance opportunities.Deal offers JC jobs to laid-off Bergen County copsMayor Steven Fulop and Bergen County Sheriff Michael Saudino on July 18 announced that they have partnered on a plan for Jersey City to offer positions with the city Police Department to the 23 Bergen County police officers who were laid off last month.The officers, who were laid off from their jobs at the end of June, would be eligible under the Rice Act to be re-employed by Jersey City without the additional expense of academy training. They would be hired as police officers with their salary based on their years of experience.“Both Bergen County and Jersey City saw this as an opportunity to keep the officers employed, while also continuing to grow the Jersey City Police Department,” said Mayor Fulop, who has made a push to grow the police department to its largest size in decades. “We see this as a way to seamlessly add experienced officers to the force, keep the officers employed so they can continue to support their families, and increase public safety in Jersey City.”“Despite our best efforts to avoid layoffs and retain every member of the Bureau of Police Services, we were unable to do so after PBA Local 49 rejected a proposal, by a single vote, that would have kept their fellow officers on the job in Bergen County. This partnership with Mayor Fulop and Jersey City makes the best of an unfortunate situation, ensuring impacted officers are employed and have the opportunity to continue in public service,” said Bergen County Sheriff Michael Saudino. “Jersey City families will be well served by these highly trained officers.”The cost to hire the officers would be covered through the city’s budget and officer attrition.“While this is certainly a difficult time for the officers and their families, we hope that they will consider working in Jersey City where they can continue to serve in law enforcement and be an asset to this community,” said Jersey City Public Safety Director James Shea. “We believe this is way to turn this into a positive for both the officers, Bergen County and Jersey City.”Hudson County CASA is seeking volunteersLearn how to become a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) volunteer and help foster children find safe and permanent homes. The next information session will be at Little City Books at 100 Bloomfield St., Hoboken on Tuesday, July 25 at 7 p.m.Hudson County Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) is a non-profit organization committed to advocating for the best interests of abused and neglected children.

PayPal’s in-store shopping division hit hardest in first round of lay-offs

first_imgAbout a month after they were first announced, the big layoffs at eBay and PayPal have begun.On Monday, eBay and PayPal employees who were losing their jobs as part of the cuts were notified, multiple sources told Re/code.Management is reportedly looking to simplify operations as the two companies head toward a split-off planned for the second half of this year.At PayPal, some cuts have come to PayPal’s in-store initiatives – the division that focuses on getting restaurants and small business retail stores to accept PayPal as a payment method. This division includes mobile payments and the PayPal Here card reader, and is viewed as an under performer within the company, multiple sources say.  PayPal’s beacon product was announced in September of 2013, but is only now shipping to some locations as part of a beta test.Though PayPal did not limit their cuts entirely to those teams,  the severity of them has some wondering if PayPal’s next move is to refocus on its core Web and in-app payments under CEO-designee Dan Schulman. Braintree, home of the red-hot Venmo peer-to-peer payments app, will be unaffected by the cuts underway. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Ilmarinen to cut bond exposure by over 10 points, target equities, real assets

first_imgFinland’s third-largest pension fund Ilmarinen has set a strategic target to reduce its fixed income allocation by more than 10 percentage points over the next 5-10 years, reallocating the assets to equities and real assets investments.Since the earnings-related pension provider had assets of €36.5bn at the end of September, even before allowing for the probable strong rise in assets over the next few years, a 10-percentage-point reallocation from bonds would mean shifting €3.6bn of assets.Mikko Mursula (pictured), Ilmarinen’s CIO, said in an interview with IPE: “We will be taking money out of fixed income and putting it into listed equities and real assets, though the division of the funds released between these two asset classes is totally subject to the investment opportunities available.”The low-yielding environment was the main challenge facing Ilmarinen from an investment point of view, he said, noting that yields on 10-year German government bonds had plummeted as low as -0.15% a couple of weeks ago. “These are levels they have never been to before, and it makes all of us seek alternatives for our fixed income,” he said. Mikko Mursula“There is a still lot of money that has yet to come out of the fixed income markets, and this is why we have been looking at investments to hold as an alternative to bonds.”At the end of September, fixed income made up 44.9% of Ilmarinen’s overall investment portfolio, having fallen from 50.3% 12 months before.Listed and non-listed equities, shares and private equity investments increased as a proportion of assets, meanwhile, climbing to 39.1% of total assets from 35.7% at the end of September last year.Real estate increased to 11.2% of all assets, up from 8.8% at the same point in 2015.Mursula said Ilmarinen had around 2% of assets in infrastructure right now.It is about to become easier for Finnish pension insurers to boost their allocations to listed developed-market equities from the regulation side, as a result of new solvency rules brought in and coinciding with the country’s major pension reform taking effect at the beginning of 2017.As part of the new solvency framework, the coefficients used to multiply the equity return percentage to determine how much the equity return buffer should be increased will rise to 15% at the beginning of 2017 from 10% now, and rise again a year later to 20%.In practice, this means individual pension insurers may be able to raise their equity allocation by 3-4 percentage points at the start of 2017 and then by a further 3-4 percentage points at the beginning of 2018 – all in all, by 7-8 points.“The reasoning behind that is that the expected return from equity is higher than for bonds, and the regulator wanted to raise the average level of risk pension insurers can take,” Mursula said.For more on pensions in the Nordic region, see stories from IPE’s special report herelast_img read more

Flexible retirement ‘a double-edged sword’ for governments: OECD

first_imgReporting on its latest ‘Pensions at a Glance’ analysis, the think tank for developed country governments said its findings indicated that, in many OECD countries, flexible retirement is possible and not discouraged.However, despite stated interest in more flexible forms of retirement, individual take-up has been low, it noted.‘Low adoption of flexible retirement due to barriers outside the pension system’According to the OECD, in Europe about 10% of individuals aged 60-64 or 65-69 combined work with drawing pensions, representing about one in five and one in eight pensioners, in the respective age groups. The average share of workers older than 65 working part-time in OECD countries had been stable at 50% over the past 15 years, it added.Low adoption of flexible retirement was due to barriers outside the pension system, such as age discrimination by employers and limits to people’s autonomy in deciding when to retire, the OECD said.To resolve this, governments must complement pension policy measures with wider labour market policies to make flexible retirement work, it said.“The challenges of financial sustainability and pension adequacy mean that bold action from governments is still needed,” said OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría. “The world of work is changing fast and policy makers must ensure that decisions made today take this into account and our pension and social protection systems do not leave anyone behind in retirement.”UK bottom for replacement rate, Denmark ‘top’ for retirement ageElsewhere in the OECD’s report, it found that:The net replacement rate from mandatory pension schemes for full-career average-wage earners entering the labour market today is equal to 63% on average in OECD countries, ranging from 29% in the UK to 102% in TurkeyThe pace of pension reforms has slowed in the last two years as improving government finances relieved some of the direct pressure to reformUnder legislation currently in place, by 2060 the normal retirement age will increase in roughly half of the OECD countries, by 1.5 years for men and 2.1 years for women on average, reaching just under 66 years. The future retirement age will range from 60 years in Luxembourg, Slovenia and Turkey to 74 in Denmark, according to the latest estimationIncreasing the retirement age is a source of tension in many countries, however. In Italy, political parties are promising to lower the state pension age and increase pension benefits, while in the Netherlands the country’s largest union opposes the government’s decision to raise the state pension age to 67 in 2021. The full OECD report can be found here. Flexible retirement is a double-edged sword for governments, according to the OECD.Calls for more flexible retirement rules were resurfacing in the public debate as a response to pressures from population ageing and financial stability concerns, as well as a resistance to higher pension ages, the economic body said.From a government perspective, flexible retirement could increase people’s wellbeing and may entice some people to work longer, in turn helping to increase workers’ future pensions and boost economic growth and tax revenues.It could also bring risks, however, such as individuals underestimating their financial needs in retirement and finding themselves at risk of old age poverty.last_img read more

GasLog Shrinks Loss, Remains Optimistic

first_imgOwner and operator of LNG carriers GasLog Ltd. managed to cut its net loss amid a seasonal weakening in demand for LNG shipping in the second quarter of 2018.For the quarter ended June 30, 2018, loss attributable to the owners of GasLog stood at USD 3.6 million, shrinking from a loss of USD 7.5 million seen in the corresponding quarter in 2017.The company’s revenues for the period reached USD 132.8 million, up from USD 129.9 million reported in the same quarter a year earlier,“As we anticipated, there was seasonal weakening in demand for LNG and for LNG shipping in the second quarter. LNG shipping spot rates troughed in late April but then more than doubled through June, driven by counter seasonal strength in LNG demand and Asian pricing that provided a clear arbitrage opportunity between the Atlantic and Pacific Basins,” Paul Wogan, Chief Executive Officer, explained.“If this recent momentum is maintained through the 2018/19 winter, we expect the future financial performance of our spot vessels to show significant improvement on the second quarter of 2018.”The company continued to execute its long-term strategy in the period with a contract for a seven-year time charter party with a subsidiary of Centrica. Against this, the company ordered a new 180,000 cbm LNG carrier with LP-2S propulsion from Samsung for delivery in the third quarter of 2020.“We now have five newbuilds on order for delivery in 2019 and 2020, three of which have committed multi-year charters, while the two uncommitted newbuilds are expected to deliver into an attractive LNG shipping market,” GasLog said.The longer-term supply and demand fundamentals for LNG remain very positive, with China’s LNG imports, in particular, increasing 50% year-on-year in the first half of 2018. Demand for natural gas and LNG remains robust, underpinned in the second quarter by significant increases in demand from major Asian consumers.last_img read more

Carbon Trust Picks CTV Emissions Reduction Tech

first_imgThe Carbon Trust’s Offshore Wind Accelerator (OWA) has revealed the winners of the competition designed to accelerate the development of technologies that have the potential to reduce emissions and fuel consumption for crew transfer vessels (CTVs) in offshore wind.The winners are Chartwell Marine and Seaspeed Marine Consulting, CWind, Robert Allan Limited, and Windcat Workboats and CMB Technologies.Each will receive advice from OWA partners to support the commercialization of their technologies, in addition to a share of GBP 300,000 in funding.The concepts demonstrate the potential to reduce fuel consumption and emissions compared to conventional CTVs and span a range of technology readiness levels from desktop studies to prototype vessel construction.Chartwell Marine and Seaspeed Marine Consulting won with a desktop study into the development of a 15m hybrid diesel/electric outboard CTV, which combines a high freeboard hull with two diesel and two electric outboard engines, which have not previously been used on CTVs. The design proposes to operate in up to 1.5m significant wave heights and transit speeds of 20-25kn.CWind revealed a supporting technology for the construction of a prototype hybrid diesel/electric Surface Effect Ship (SES) CTV. This 22m vessel will be able to carry 24 passengers at a transit speed of nearly 40kn in significant wave heights in excess of 1.5m.Robert Allan submitted a desktop study for a methanol/electric hybrid CTV, which takes advantage of the high volumetric energy density and stable liquid properties of methanol, in combination with a hybrid battery propulsion system. The study will look at the feasibility of applying this novel fuel type to a 21m CTV, capable of 20kn transit speeds, in addition to boost and electric-only operational modes.Windcat and CMB Technologies are developing a prototype hydrogen-powered CTV which uses hydrogen-diesel co-combustion. The Hydrocat 1, based on the Windcat MK3.5 platform, will be capable of using a majority of green hydrogen as fuel, delivering emission savings without compromising vessel performance.The competition is being delivered by the Carbon Trust, with support from Black & Veatch, on behalf of OWA industry partners EnBW, Equinor, innogy, Ørsted, RWE Renewables, ScottishPower Renewables, Shell, SSE, and Vattenfall.The work is expected to conclude at the end of 2020.last_img read more
