Board modifies Bar investment policy

first_imgActing on advice of the Investment Committee, the Board of Governors has slightly modified the Bar’s investment policy to help hedge in down markets.Investment Committee Chair Ian Comisky told the board, at its recent Naples meeting, that the Bar’s investments are designed to be less volatile than in the overall market. As part of that, some investments are targeted to increase in value when the overall market declines.But during some of the market turbulence last year, Comisky said the Bar found all of its investments declining at the same time. To help prevent that decline, the Bar’s investment advisor recommended changing a commodity fund that made up about 2.5 percent of the Bar’s portfolio.That involved selling the Bar’s stake in the T. Rowe Price New Era commodity fund and splitting the money between two new funds, R.S. Global Natural Resources and Highbridge Dynamic Commodities Strategy Fund.The board approved the committee’s recommendation to make the change.Comisky also reported that the Bar’s long-term investment portfolio was near its all-time high after a 6.45 percent increase in the first quarter of 2012.

‘Let’s build on Derby win’ – McAllister

first_imgThe Robins head into the Sky Bet Championship fixture versus Marcelo Bielsa’s Whites with six wins from their last eight league matches and will be hoping that good form can lead to a positive outcome.Both sides are flying high in the second tier as the race for the play-offs and promotion intensifies.“We have to build on that momentum and positive performance,” said McAllister, following City’s 3-2 win over Derby County on Wednesday.“We’ve added quality with three new players. Markus Henriksen won Man of the Match: he looked very assured, very efficient, he’s good on the ball and he is strong in the middle. Nahki was sharp, has great movement and took his goal well which is massive for him and at the back, Benković has real quality on the ball, he defended well and got his goal.“They’ve all added so much to the group to make us stronger so I’m looking forward to seeing if they’ll be involved in the next game.”The Derby fixture saw City show their attacking intent with three goals en route to the three points, as well as a dogged defensive show at the end to prevent the Rams from sneaking a point. It’s those elements of the game which, if mastered, are the perfect combination.McAllister said: “The mood has been really good. In the dressing room after it was a bit subdued because we were 3-0 up then it went 3-2 but the Gaffer came in, got the boys going and said ‘what a great result it was and how good a performance it was against a very good, in-form Derby team at the moment’. It was a great performance from us and a great three points.“We’ve been excellent at defending leads over the last few months to be fair, since the good run started…they didn’t panic, we went to 3-2 and a lot of teams would have panicked then, come out of shape but our distances between the lines, the organisation from the team and communication from the group was excellent”last_img read more

Bear-human conflict risks pinpointed amid resurgent bear population

first_imgNew research maps out the potential risk “hotspots” for black bear-human conflict based on an analysis of conditions that led to nearly 400 bear deaths between 1997 and 2013.The study area covered the Lake Tahoe Basin and the Great Basin Desert in western Nevada.The methods used to predict risks based on environmental variables could help wildlife managers identify and mitigate human-carnivore conflict in other parts of the world, the authors write. Scientists have mapped out instances of human-black bear conflict in a part of the U.S. state of Nevada where bears are returning decades after they vanished.The results of their analyses, reported in the October issue of the journal Global Ecology and Conservation, could help wildlife managers identify specific sites where this type of conflict is more likely in the future, potentially allowing them to avert the deaths of black bears as a result.“Ultimately the goal of conservation is to have more individuals of species like bears and other carnivores on landscapes like we have accomplished in the Great Basin, but we then have to understand how to limit their mortality that results from conflicts with humans,” conservation scientist and study co-author Jon Beckmann, who directs the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Rocky Mountain West program, said in a statement.Black bear cubs in a dumpster. Image by Jon Beckmann/WCS.The area around Lake Tahoe in western Nevada extending east into the Great Basin Desert had been home to black and grizzly bears until the 1930s. But changes to their habitat and their persecution as predators led to their disappearance from much of the region. Recently, however, restored habitats have made the area more hospitable, and authorities have put new wildlife regulations in place, encouraging black bears to move back into the area. At the same time, recreational opportunities such as skiing and hiking have become more popular, leading to the development of resorts and housing.To better understand the implications of these converging trends, the authors plotted out the deaths of black bears — 382 in all — recorded from 1997 until 2013 in this area. Most of the bears either died in collisions with vehicles or were euthanized by wildlife managers because they’d had run-ins with people and were considered a danger to human safety or property.A mother black bear feeding on huckleberries. Image by Alan Vernon via Wikimedia Commons (CC BY 2.0).The team then used a statistical model to figure out what factors in the environment heightened the risk of death for black bears. The modeling revealed that more bears died closer to towns, roads and livestock pastures in the study area. But the analyses also uncovered the effects of such variables as the number of hiking trails in an area, the distance to recreation sites, and the type of forest nearby in determining the risk to black bears.“We were surprised to find subtle indicators of human activity were important drivers of bear mortality risk, an important finding for wildlife recovery efforts,” Rae Wynn-Grant, a conservation biologist with the American Museum of Natural History in New York and the study’s lead author, said in the statement.Black bear cubs. Image by Jon Beckmann/WCS.The authors believe the growth of the bear population could hinge on minimizing the deaths of bears stemming from tangles with people.What’s more, these strategies and the insights they yield could help wildlife managers in other parts of the country with rising black bear populations, the authors write. These methods might also be valuable in other parts of the world where other carnivores may be threatened by the shifting “wildland-urban interface” that puts them in greater contact with people.Banner image of a swimming black bear by Cephas via Wikimedia Commons (CC BY-SA 3.0).Citation Wynn-Grant, R., Ginsberg, J.

Good effort trying to be objective in this article. I would like to give a constructive feedback which could help in clearing things up.1. It is mentioned that planting trees in village common lands will have negative affects socially and ecologically. There is no need to even have to agree or disagree with it, because, you also mentioned the fact that Cauvery Calling aims to plant trees only in the private lands of the farmers. So, plantation in the common lands doesn’t come into the picture.2.I don’t see that the ecologists are totally against this project, but just they they have some concerns, mainly in terms of what species of trees will be planted. And because there was no direct communication between the ecologists and Isha Foundation, it was not possible for them to address the concerns. As you seem to have spoken with an Isha spokesperson, if you could connect the concerned parties, it would be great, because I see that the ecologists are genuinely interested in making sure things are done the right way.May we all come together and make things happen.Rare Amazon bush dogs caught on camera in BoliviaCarrot1 Feba very good iniciative to be fallowed by the ranchers all overSponsoredlast_img read more
