first_img Show Comments ▼ KCS-content Share BRIDGEWATER has increased its lead as the biggest hedge fund manager in America, figures released yesterday claimed. The firm now manages around $50.9bn (£32.4bn), up from $38.6bn  last year to also make it the biggest riser, according to AR magazine’s biannual rankings. Bridgewater, a 35-year-old fund firm founded by Ray Dalio, comfortably outstrips nearest rival JP Morgan, which looks after $41.1bn in its hedge funds business. The survey shows there are 217 hedge funds managing more than $1bn each, and between them take care of assets worth over $1.9 trillion. The number of firms in the list has increased from 205 this time last year. However, only 54 per cent of hedge fund managers in the list have added value to their assets this year, said AR. The biggest loser was D.E. Shaw, which has seen the value of its assets under management slashed by over $5bn in the last year, taking its total to $17.8bn. The firm is in the throes of cutting ten per cent of its workforce. Paulson & Co, whose flagship fund lost 11 per cent last year, is in third place after gaining $4bn overall.

At least 20% of the proceeds from ticket sales for the new society lottery will be distributed. Tickets cost £1 and go on sale on Monday 10th April with the first draw taking place on Friday 28th April on S4C, the lottery’s exclusive broadcast partner. The weekly draw has a guaranteed jackpot of £25,000 – the maximum the lottery can offer under society lottery rules.Loteri Cymru is a Community Interest Company (CIC) chaired by WRU Chairman and former Wales rugby international, Gareth Davies, while Hanfod Cymru is chaired by Deris Williams, former chief executive of Menter Cwm Gwendraeth, with interim CEO Marc Phillips, formerly head of policy at BBC Children in Need.Hanfod Cymru is offering three funding programmes: one-off Small Grants of up to £10,000, Main Grants of £10,000 to £75,000, which may be phased over up to three years, and Strategic Grants of between £75,000 and £200,000 for ‘projects of particular significance and impact’.Local charities all over Wales will be invited to apply for support for community projects with educational, social and cultural benefits. Hanfod Cymru is currently accepting applications for its small grants programme online, with its main grants programme set to open for applications later in the year, followed by strategic grants in 2018.Phillips said:“Hanfod Cymru is a new source of funding for local community initiatives whose needs are often unmet. This is an exciting opportunity to develop new ideas and essential services to combat disadvantage and encourage creativity.”Davies said: Advertisementcenter_img “We are launching Loteri Cymru to create a win-win for the people and communities of Wales, where individuals can afford to try their luck at winning a life-enhancing jackpot and their local communities benefit too.”“Our research has shown that people really like the idea of a dedicated Welsh lottery that benefits local causes. We want Loteri.Cymru to become a real part of life here, so that, as soon as possible, everyone in Wales will know someone who has won a prize or be aware of a good cause that has benefited.”  129 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis13 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Here’s a look at what happened for the Panthers this week, as well as what’s coming up in the days to come.Boys BasketballThe Panthers finished their season with a 59-37 road win over Arlington Tuesday night. Junior guard Tyrik Price closed things out emphatically, going off for a season-high 31 points. Junior point guard Dylan Thomas added 12 points. Meanwhile, Paschal played tough on the defensive end, not allowing a single player for the Colts to score in double digits.Paschal (11-14, 4-9 Dist. 4-6A) missed the playoffs, but will return the core of what was a young squad this season. Ten of the Panthers’ 14 players were juniors this year, and they lose just two seniors.Boys SoccerThe Paschal boys soccer team notched two straight wins this week after losing two the week before.

first_imgiStock/kali9(PHOENIX) —  A Phoenix man is charged with four murders and multiple assaults after allegedly killing his wife, two of their children and a friend over apparent suspicions that his wife was having an affair with his brother — who was not among the victims, officials said this week.While in custody, suspect Austin Smith told police that “in God’s eyes it was alright for him to deal with someone in this manner who been involved in adultery or an extramarital affair,” Phoenix Police Sgt. Tommy Thompson at a press conference on Friday. “Under his religious beliefs he believes that it was okay.”It’s unclear what religion Smith practices, Thompson said.On Thursday, police were called to the scene of an apartment complex in Glendale, Arizona — a city about nine miles northwest of downtown Phoenix — where they found the body of Ron Freeman, 46, as well as an unidentified woman, 47, with multiple gunshot wounds and an unidentified man with unspecified injuries.Police said they apprehended Smith, 30, fleeing that scene. Once in police custody, he allegedly led authorities to the scene of an even more horrific crime — at his own home.Officials said that Smith had returned home from a local bar around 8 p.m., full of suspicion over the perceived infidelity and confronted his wife, who denied the accusation.Authorities said the only survivor at Smith’s family home was the couple’s 3-year-old daughter.“It it from my understanding that he elected not to shoot the 3-years-old, she was under the bed when officers got to her,” said Thompson.He then headed to Glendale and shot Freeman after the family friend told Smith he would be crazy to believe his wife was cheating on him, according to authorities.Inside Smith’s car, police found a 9mm handgun, a .45 caliber handgun and a .223 caliber rifle they believe were used in the shootings, according to the probable cause statement.Smith was charged on Friday in Maricopa County Superior Court for the quadruple murder and held on $2 million bail. He is also charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder and three counts of aggravated assault.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

first_imgThe Antarctic biota has evolved over the last 100 million years in increasingly isolated and cold conditions. As a result, Antarctic species, from micro-organisms to vertebrates, have adapted to life at extremely low temperatures, including changes in the genome, physiology and ecological traits such as life history. Coupled with cycles of glaciation that have promoted speciation in the Antarctic, this has led to a unique biota in terms of biogeography, patterns of species distribution and endemism. Specialization in the Antarctic biota has led to trade-offs in many ecologically important functions and Antarctic species may have a limited capacity to adapt to present climate change. These include the direct effects of changes in environmental parameters and indirect effects of increased competition and predation resulting from altered life histories of Antarctic species and the impacts of invasive species. Ultimately, climate change may alter the responses of Antarctic ecosystems to harvesting from humans. The unique adaptations of Antarctic species mean that they provide unique models of molecular evolution in natural populations. The simplicity of Antarctic communities, especially from terrestrial systems, makes them ideal to investigate the ecological implications of climate change, which are difficult to identify in more complex systems.last_img read more
