EU’s top court lands major blow to UK-EU data agreement

first_imgHowever, the UK must ink a separate data sharing agreement with the EU once it leaves the single market at the end of the Brexit transition period in January.  It comes after the ECJ in July banned Privacy Shield — a data sharing deal between the EU and US — in a sweeping judgement that set the groundwork for the UK’s data agreement with the bloc. Poppy Wood “Without an adequacy decision, UK businesses would be faced with the issue that their extensive, ‘business as usual’ transfers between the EU and UK of personal data concerning employees, customers, suppliers would cease to be compliant with the GDPR’s rules on data transfers.” “Large swathes of EU-US data transfers may be in breach of GDPR [rules] and, once the transition period is over, data transfers between the EU and the UK will become much more difficult,” he said. “This reinforces previous ECJ rulings that the UK security services’ powers around personal data are in scope of EU law, and do not fully align with it,” said Taylor. “Today’s decision is a blow to the UK’s hope to get an adequacy decision from the EU,” she said. ‘The EU court found that UK surveillance measures on bulk retention and access of communication data are incompatible with EU fundamental rights.” “This is very likely to be a point of contention in the European Commission’s consideration of whether to give the UK data adequacy status on Brexit. Show Comments ▼ Also Read: EU’s top court lands major blow to UK’s chances of post-Brexit data deal However, experts have warned that today’s ruling significantly scuppers the UK’s chances of achieving such a decision. The verdict will likely land a huge blow for spying agencies in those countries and further afield, which will see their data surveillance powers significantly quashed. Tuesday 6 October 2020 3:43 pm Mark Taylor, partner and data protection lawyer at Osborne Clarke, said the decision “has broader ramifications for UK business than might first appear”. An adequacy decision would provide a de facto certification that data protection standards in the UK meet EU requirements. Lubbock told City A.M. the combination of the Privacy Shield ban and today’s judgement by the ECJ “could have significant consequences for British commerce and industry and especially for the UK’s world leading financial services sector”. Currently, data transfers between EU countries go largely unhindered because nations are subject to the same GDPR laws. Mark Lubbock, partner in the innovation and technology group at law firm Brown Rudnick said the decision would cause a headache for all governments, but in particular would make it much more difficult to ferry data cross the Channel post-Brexit. center_img Tags: Brexit Data protection whatsapp Share It also marks the latest upset for Britain’s chances of being handed a data adequacy decision by the European Commission when the UK formally leaves the bloc. Estelle Massé, senior policy analyst at digital rights NGO Access Now, said the decision rendered the chances of the UK achieving an adequacy decision as “slim”. The Prime Minister in February said the UK was planning to set up sovereign controls over its data sharing policies, and that Britain could diverge from EU rules once it leaves the bloc. whatsapp EU’s top court lands major blow to UK’s chances of post-Brexit data deal “Businesses and banks operating in the EU after 1 January may not have a easily available mechanism to transfer personal data to the UK,” he said. The European Court of Justice (ECJ) today handed out its much-anticipated verdict on government surveillance, ruling that the indiscriminate retention of data is illegal under EU law unless there is a “serious threat to national security”. The decision is the result of legal proceedings brought by courts in Belgium, France and the UK, which called for the free transfer and retention of data by authorities to protect citizens.   The EU’s top court has ruled that unrestrained mass surveillance of phone and internet data is unlawful, in the latest blow to the UK’s chances of securing a post-Brexit data-sharing agreement with the EU.  “This could… mean that messaging networks used by banks and other financial institutions to send and receive information, such as money transfer instructions will not be able to operate through London.” Before the Open: Get the jump on the markets with our early morning newsletter The Luxembourg-based court said large amounts of data can only be held by governments for the “limited” amount of time that is “strictly necessary”. last_img read more

After vandals strike Sitka cemetery, caretaker receives unexpected help

first_imgSoutheast | SpiritAfter vandals strike Sitka cemetery, caretaker receives unexpected helpDecember 6, 2015 by Emily Kwong KCAW Share:For the third time in the last seven weeks, vandals have pushed over dozens of headstones in Sitka’s Russian Orthodox Cemetery. Sitka Police are investigating. The first incident, pictured here, took place the weekend of Sept. 12. (Photo courtesy Bob Sam)On a clear night in September, a group of vandals desecrated a 200-year old cemetery in Sitka, tipping over headstones. The caretaker, 61-year old Bob Sam, discovered the damage the next morning. Some of the marble slabs were broken beyond repair.The cemetery caretaker enlisted the help of local police to protect the rights of the dead.Bob Sam tends to keep to himself. He always wears jeans, patched with dirt on the knee from the hours spent packing earth. He is a slight man, with the voice of someone who has spent a lot of time with the dead.“Most humans they think about life,” Sam said. “They don’t think about death so much. But somebody has to do this work.”The Sitka cemetery in the 1900s. Sam estimates it is the final resting place for 1,600 bodies, 400 of which are marked. All are connected with the Russian Orthodox church and many are Tlingit. (Photo courtesy Bob Sam)Sam’s life’s work has been restoring Sitka’s Russian Orthodox Cemetery, which he visited often as a child. One day, when he was 7 years old, he discovered his grandmother sitting solemnly by the family plot.“My grandmother had kind of a tear coming out of her eye,” Sam said. “There were beer cans all over the place and the brush was overgrown. I just quietly looked at my grandmother and I says, ‘Don’t worry grandma. I’ll fix this place for you.’”Sam began clearing the cemetery in 1986. The land had become a dumping ground for trash and partying. He found many pounds of beer cases and empty bottles. (Photo courtesy Bob Sam)It was a promise he kept. Sam returned to Sitka at age 30. He discovered graves desecrated, the headstones buried by mounds of trash, and the clearing claimed by the rainforest. So, he got to work — on the longest day of the year: June 21, 1986. That summer’s cleanup required 30 city dump trucks to haul away the garbage. Community members helped with the heavy lifting. And now?“There’s something special about this place now,” Sam said. “People can feel it.”Police plan to install infrared cameras in the cemetery to monitor the activity of the living in the presence of the dead. (Photo courtesy Bob Sam)The cemetery clearing is pristine – sloping hills dotted with pillars of white marble and bird song.The first time I visited him there, Sam guided my eyes to the top of an enormous cedar tree.“That’s a fourth-generation nest of the raven I made friends with 30 years ago,” Sam said.This summer, he personally washed all the headstones, removing dead pollen and revealing the natural patina of the marble. There are 400 of them and the vast majority mark Tlingit and Aleut graves.“When you’re washing a headstone, it’s no different from washing somebody’s feet,” Sam said. “And you experience a kind of humility. No matter what they do in life, they should have a respectful death.”Sam had just finished washing the headstones when, on the morning of Sept. 12, he discovered the cemetery had been desecrated; the biggest headstones knocked flat to the ground.“My spirit broke,” he said.Sam hadn’t touched alcohol for decades, but that day, he ordered a beer.“The beer was sitting in front of me,” he said. “But then I thought about it. I can’t live that life. So I got up and I called the police.”The officer he got on the phone was Lt. Lance Ewers. Ewers told Sam to meet him at the cemetery and spent the next hour taking pictures of the damage. In Alaska, desecrating a cemetery is a felony.“We started doing some extra patrols in the area,” Ewers said. “And then I saw Mr. Sam the other day and together we came up with an idea of what it would take to fix these tombstones because some of them are 700 pounds. And he said, ‘You know, it would just take muscle, a lot of muscle.’”And muscle is exactly what Ewers found. He banded together a dozen recruits from Sitka’s Trooper Academy and they set the headstones upright. There was a heavy downpour that night. Sam watched them work in the mud.“I always thought that I was the only that cared about this place, which was wrong,” Sam said.The vandals would strike three more times, Sept. 13, Sept. 22 and Oct. 25. Each time recruits from the academy, Sitka police, and even some firefighters volunteered to lift the headstones out of the dirt and stand them upright.“And they would assure me every single time, ‘Bob, if you need any help in anything, just give us a call.’ Like a friend would,” Sam said.Sam gives a presentation at the library. He points to a picture of himself with Tlingit elders who encouraged him to pursue his interest in cemetery caretaking. (Photo courtesy Bob Sam)The culprits were eventually caught and police plan to install infrared cameras to permanently monitor the activity of the living, in the presence of the dead.Sam considered giving up this work entirely. But he changed his mind when seeing how the community took the cemetery under its wing.“These are Native American graves and to have people from all walks of life come in to do the things that they are doing, and their whole heart and soul is into it, really touches me,” Sam said.So, Sam continues his work because he believes that one day a generation who wonders who they are will wander into the cemetery and find an answer written in stone.Share this story:last_img read more

London is prime destination for foreign ventures

first_img Show Comments ▼ whatsapp London is the greatest city in the world at attracting foreign investment, according to new research.  The capital left the likes of Paris, Singapore, Chicago and Dubai far in its wake for the seventh year running in 2014, according to the ranking from tech giant IBM. Foreign investment has generated 11,300 London jobs across 235 investment projects from major companies relocating or expanding overseas – more jobs than it did in Paris, Amsterdam and Barcelona combined.  Paris, in second place, only attracted 144 foreign investment projects. On a country basis, the UK was top in Europe, and fifth in the world, behind the US, China, India and Mexico – up two places from the year before. The rapidly expanding tech sector was the biggest recipient of foreign investment in the year to April, according to London & Part­ners, the capital’s promotional company.  IBM’s research also said that financial and business services played a significant role. “For centuries, London has been one of the world’s most successful international trading cities and it is terrific that we continue to attract record levels of business from overseas,” said London Mayor Boris Johnson, who will be handing over the reins next May.  “London’s position at the centre of the world makes it an ideal destination for investors and international companies looking to do business with markets across the globe.

Lehigh Acres man arrested for killing dog, duck & cat

Expanded CPP could curb RRSP contributions

CPPIB reports record return for latest fiscal year An increase to mandatory contributions to the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) could have the effect of reducing RRSP contributions says a new paper from the Vancouver-based think tank, the Fraser Institute. Utilizing data from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) on CPP and RRSP contributions between 1993 and 2008, the study looked at two age groups (under 45, and 45 to 65), and it separated each age group by income ($10,000 to $50,000, and $50,000 to $100,000). It reports that it consistently found that RRSP contributions declined as mandatory savings to the CPP increased. Related news Keywords RRSPs,  Canada Pension Plan CPP Investments CEO resigns after travelling for Covid-19 vaccine James Langton “While the results are broadly consistent across all age and income groups, the group most likely to be sensitive to changes in the CPP are Canadians aged 45 to 65 with income between $10,000 and $50,000,” it says. For example, it reports that in 1993, 40.2% of tax-filers in this group contributed to RRSPs, which fell 33.0% by 2003, over the same period the CPP contribution rate almost doubled to 9.9% from 5.0%. It also says, for Canadians in the 45 to 65 age group with income between $10,000 and $50,000, the share of income contributed to RRSPs declined to 3.5% in 2003 from 4.4% in 1993. And, it reports that a third measure showed the dollar value of RRSP contributions per tax filer also decreased as mandatory CPP contributions increased. Again, this was evident across all age and income groups, it says. Of course, correlation does not necessarily equal causation. “While the conclusions drawn from the analysis are not definitive, they strongly suggest a substitution between CPP and RRSPs occurred in the past when mandatory CPP contributions increased,” said Charles Lammam, Fraser Institute associate director of tax and budget policy and co-author of the study. “The key to providing retirement income through savings is a set of rules that allows for an optimal mix of savings for different people in different stages of life and with different preferences. There may be benefits to a compulsory expansion of the CPP, but these benefits need to be weighed against the costs, which as our analysis shows could include a reduction in voluntary RRSP savings,” Lammam added.

St. Elizabeth Homecoming Foundation Promoting Attractions in the Parish

first_imgRelatedSt. Elizabeth Homecoming Foundation Promoting Attractions in the Parish St. Elizabeth Homecoming Foundation Promoting Attractions in the Parish TourismDecember 3, 2009 RelatedSt. Elizabeth Homecoming Foundation Promoting Attractions in the Parish RelatedSt. Elizabeth Homecoming Foundation Promoting Attractions in the Parishcenter_img FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The St. Elizabeth Homecoming Foundation recently hosted representatives of a number of corporate entities in Kingston as the Foundation seeks to highlight the parish as the ideal place for Jamaicans and visitors to the island to visit and vacation.The touring party comprised human resource managers and other key personnel, who arrange vacations or outings for their staff, clients, and guests, as part of their service delivery or incentive programme. The group visited Appleton Estate, YS Falls via the picturesque Holland Bamboo, Black River Safari, and Treasure Beach.Chairperson of the St. Elizabeth Homecoming Foundation, Mrs. Donna Parchment Brown, told JIS News that the group recognises the importance of the many attractions to the development of the local economy, and to the improvement of the quality of life for the citizens of the parish.“There are many developed attractions in the parish, and there are a number of attractions that are crying out for development. These are attractive to local persons, as well as international visitors, and certainly, members of the Diaspora coming home to see the wonderful attractions in the parish,” she stated.“We do believe that in bad times, we can survive and part of that is looking at what we have, and how we can present those to others, who might be willing to spend money to enjoy a different kind of experience,” she added.Extolling the virtues of the places visited, Mrs. Parchment Brown stated that the Appleton Estate Rum Tour is a “wonderful attraction”.“Apart from the fact that you see a working factory in operation, the facility that has been developed for the comfort of the guests, the historic equipment that are being maintained in good attractive order, and the condition of the ground, is just a wonderful morning tour,” she pointed out.The visit to the YS Falls, she said, “was quite a revelation for everyone there. Rarely have we seen such a beautiful piece of nature laid out in a beautiful cascade of clean, glistening water, in a setting of the most tropical plant, where the man-made element is neatly tucked into the natural environment.”The Tourism Product Development Company (TPDCo) was involved in organising the tour, and Mrs. Parchment Brown informed that the Foundation will be “working with TPDCo to ensure that the investments that they have made and will be making, helps to develop all the attractions in the parish”.Encouraging Jamaicans to include the parish in their vacation planning, she stated that: “whether it is the Calabash (Literary Festival), or you are just coming down for the weekend with your family, or you are taking a group for a purpose, there are so many gems that I would like to encourage people to visit in St. Bess.” Advertisementslast_img read more
