A ‘more effective’ regime will be introduced to help organisations report suspicious financial activity as part of the government’s plans to ‘root out’ corruption, the Queen’s speech announced. Following last week’s anti-corruption summit in London, legislation would be introduced to tackle corruption, money laundering and tax evasion.Although more than 350,000 suspicious activity reports (SARs) were filed with the UK Finance Unit in the National Crime Agency last year, a new Criminal Finances Bill will improve the operation of the SARs regime ‘to encourage better use’ of public and private sector resources against the highest threats, and target entities that carry out money laundering instead of individual transactions.The National Crime Agency will also be granted new powers.A new criminal offence for corporations who fail to stop their staff facilitating tax evasion will be introduced.The bill will also improve the ability of law enforcement agencies and courts to recover criminal assets more effectively, particularly in cases such as those linked to grand corruption.The Law Society, responding to the speech, said it supported a global approach to tackling the global problem of tax evasion, including action to promote transparency through the cross-border exchange of information and complementary procedures between jurisdictions.The Society added: ‘We work closely with the Fraud Lawyers Association and are engaging with the consultation on the draft legislation and guidance for the new corporate offence of failing to prevent the facilitation of tax evasion (at home and abroad), not least to ensure that the penalties and deterrents are proportionate.‘We will continue to engage with any similar measures the government proposes.’
Devastating mudslides in the Colombian town of Mocoa killed at least 254 people including 43 children, President Juan Manuel Santos said Sunday, as survivors described gruesome scenes amid the ruins.Santos, who traveled to the southern town to personally oversee relief operations, warned the toll could keep climbing.“Unfortunately, these are still preliminary figures,” he wrote on Twitter, after giving an earlier toll of 210.“We offer our prayers for all of them. We send our condolences and the entire country’s sympathies to their families.”More than 200 were injured in the disaster.Survivors and rescuers kept up a bleak search for victims in the muck and debris.Covered in mud, 38-year-old Marta Gomez told of going to search for her missing niece — and making a chilling find instead.“I went to look for my niece, but I couldn’t find her. I dug and dug and found what turned out to be a baby’s hand. It was horrible,” she said in a shelter set up for the newly homeless.As she stood in line waiting to register for government assistance for those who lost their houses, Gomez told AFP she had given up on finding her niece.“The mud took her away. I’ll never see her again,” she said, clinging to the leash of her equally muddy German shepherd.Rescuers worked in stifling heat under a cloudy sky in the remote Amazon town, the capital of Putumayo department.The debris left by the mudslides was everywhere: buried cars, uprooted trees, children’s toys and stray shoes sticking up out of the mud.The torrent of mud, boulders and debris struck the town with little warning late Friday after days of heavy rains that caused three area rivers to flood.It swept away homes, bridges, vehicles and trees, leaving piles of wrecked timber.Most of the hardest-hit neighborhoods in the town of 40,000 are poor and populated with people uprooted during Colombia’s five-decade-long civil war.Santos declared an emergency to speed up aid operations.Health authorities said they had dispatched sanitation specialists in hopes of preventing outbreaks of disease.Santos said four emergency water treatment plants would be set up “to avoid an epidemic and an even bigger public health crisis.”An unexpected offer of help also came from the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), a leftist rebel group engaged in a historic peace process with the government.It said FARC members were prepared to help rebuild the town.Marta Ceballos, a 44-year-old street vendor, said she lost everything, but is thankful her family is alive.“To see how some people screamed, and others cried, ran, tried to flee in cars, on motorcycles, and how they were trapped in the mud. It’s all too, too difficult,” she told AFP.Electricity and running water have yet to be restored to Mocoa. Local authorities said repairing the electrical substation would take time.There were reports of people looting stores searching for bottled water.“There are lots of people in the streets, lots of people displaced and many houses have collapsed,” retired Mocoa resident Hernando Rodriguez, 69, said by telephone.“There were no preparations” for such a disaster, he said.Several deadly landslides have struck Colombia in recent months.A landslide in November killed nine people in the rural southwestern town of El Tambo, officials said.The previous month, 10 people lost their lives in a mudslide in the north of the country.The Pacific rim of South America has been hard hit in recent months by floods and mudslides, with scores killed in Peru and Ecuador.
Anokiwave has introduced a family of Phased Array Antenna Innovator’s Kits. These are the world’s first commercially available electronically scanned active array’s available for the prototyping and evaluation of millimeter-wave environments for 5G applications.The AWMF-0129 is driven by the Anokiwave AWMF-0108 28 GHz 5G Quad Core IC with embedded functions for remote telemetry and low-latency steering. It is a 64-element, single polarization 5G phased array antenna designed to cover the 27.5 to 30 GHz frequency band. The AWMF-0129 is a planar antenna that can be used either as a stand-alone component, or combined and synchronized with other arrays to support hybrid beamforming and MIMO functionality as part of larger array.With 50 dBmi of EIRP (Equivalent Isotropically Radiated Power), the array supports multiple beam widths. A wide beam is available to support channel state information measurements, search modes and broadcast channels. Multiple progressively narrower beams can be used for beam acquisition. And narrow beams allow for interference mitigation, optimizing SNR (Signal-to-Noise-Radio), maximizing EIRP, and range extension. A two-dimensional scan volume of ±60 degrees in both azimuth and elevation is supported.Developed with Ball Aerospace for mmW wireless markets, the AWMF-0129 includes an integrated controller that can steer the single-beam array to a predetermined position within a wide scan volume with minimal latency and system sensitivity.The AWMF-0129 Innovator’s kits are available now and customers may also license the technology for their own array development activities.

The private session comes one day before the Browns will host Mentor, Ohio native Mitch Trubisky and other local prospects at the Browns facility in Berea for workouts and visits.Only the local prospects, those who have gone to high school or college in the surrounding area, are permitted to work out for the Browns when they visit the facility.The other 30 prospects who come to town can only interview, get checked medically, spend time in the meeting rooms and dine with team officials.The Browns have already checked on a couple college quarterbacks that will get drafted next month, that being Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes and Notre Dame’s Deshone Kizer.Watson’s draft stock went way up after he led Clemson to an upset win over Alabama in the National Title game in January, and in his college career he went 33-3.
