first_img According to a study by the Institute of Applied Economic Research (IPEA), the losses determined by the high incidence of homicides cost approximately US$ 8.69 billion in public funds per year. *André Luís Woloszyn, Strategic Intelligence Analyst In 2012, the Army destroyed approximately 230,000 weapons of various types and calibers, seized during police operations, as well as those given up by the population during campaigns in prior years. It is estimated that there are 8 million legalized weapons by Brazilian citizens and almost the same number of illegal weapons were smuggled from other countries, stolen during robberies, or belong to private security companies. The reason for the increase is still unknown to specialists. There are different theories ranging from the inefficiency of the state security service regarding the safety of the population, to the short response of the media in showing the many disarmament marketing campaigns of the Ministry of Justice. A new survey conducted by the Federal Police, who are responsible for issuing firearms permissions and licenses, at the request of Brazilian newspaper O Globo, , shows an increase of 378% from 2007 to 2012, considering only new and legal weapons. In prior years, the permissions to carry a gun reached an average of 7,000 per year, and in 2012 the number of newly issued registrations went up to 31,500. By Dialogo May 31, 2013 Despite a stricter law approved in 2003, which increased the minimum age for purchasing and carrying a firearm from 21 to 25 years old, along with a mandatory psychological exam and practice tests, the number of records for weapons granted to Brazilian citizens has increased. This matter concerns the authorities, especially those in the public security area, since the country now ranks first in the world for firearm-related deaths. last_img read more

first_imgThis past June, the National Credit Union Administration issued a notice of proposed rulemaking that would expand and amplify credit union procedures related to merger initiatives. Specifically, NCUA’s objective is to enhance transparency—often thought of as “honesty” or “openness”—with members about merger-related transactions. And indeed, transparency and accountability are generally considered the two main pillars of good corporate governance.The agency explained in the notice that the current environment is “a period of significant consolidation.” This, in turn, has created situations in which “… some prospective merger partners may be seeking to influence the merging credit union’s financial incentives …” that implicate conflicts of interest in the merging credit union’s management. This explains NCUA’s concerned interest in transparency for members.During the comment period, many suggestions were submitted to NCUA. We don’t know what the final rule will look like, but we do know critical elements that NCUA will address—elements that boards of directors and management will want to be mindful of in the future should they be involved in a merger. The proposed merger rule touches, among others, five significant areas: definitional changes that accommodate the proposed rule’s modifications; an obligation for greater credit union information submissions to NCUA; revised information standards for members; a right of members to communicate their views with other members; and delineation of the timing of merger process notices. continue reading » 11SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

first_imgThere was once a time in this country when college basketball was unquestionably the king of hoops. After Michael Jordan retired for the third and final time, college ball took center stage and built a reputation as the most exciting and, at least as far as ratings were concerned, the most entertaining basketball available for viewing pleasure.If something doesn’t change, however, the NBA will soon regain the national spotlight. That is, if it hasn’t done so already.The Association’s star-power and off-court Melo-drama (pun vehemently intended) coalesced with a diminishing product on the college level might mean curtains for the once-untouchable NCAA. That threat doesn’t exclude the NCAA Tournament either.It was only but a few years ago when twice as many fans tuned in to the Final Four than the NBA Finals. But that trend has changed. Last June, the NBA Finals featuring the Celtics and Lakers drew almost 5 million more viewers than the college title game between Duke and Butler.Beyond that, in a list of the 100 most watched sports telecasts of 2010, college basketball’s championship night came in 43rd, behind, among other events, 19 NFL regular season games.Yes, a championship bout between Duke, one of college basketball’s most reviled programs, and a mid-major Cinderella in Butler, which only tiptoed into the Final Four due to a weak tournament field, might excise viewership.But don’t forget in 2009 the NBA Finals again out-drew the National Championship game between North Carolina and Michigan State, two popular programs from power conferences.It is possible the NBA’s misplaced popularity was self-inflicted. Over a stretch of about five or six years the Association’s perennial championship teams consisted of players such as Tim Duncan, Richard Hamilton and Dwayne Wade (before he was “Dwayne Wade”); players who, for the most part, had personalities as glittery as a bag of charcoal.But now, with the star-power back on top of the pro-game, fans have slowly but surely filtered back into the professional basketball world, leaving the college game behind with its table scraps of one-year wonders.The NBA’s premier athletes haven’t done the NCAA any favors either. Once derided by the public for a lack of effort, especially on the defensive end, teams like the Celtics and the Lakers have reinvested themselves in team defense, quelling the belief that NBA players don’t give their best effort on a consistent basis.However, there are other contributing factors to why college basketball has dulled over the past few years. The NFL’s popularity has blossomed into the sports world’s equivalent of a monopoly.More often than not, by the time the NFL regular and post-season buzz dissipates, the college basketball schedule has run through half of its slated games. The big-time non-conference matchups, the individual performances and the beginning of conference play all get lost in the NFL regular season shuffle.Certainly there are true hoops-fans who follow the game throughout the season, but a casual fan doesn’t usually watch college ball until their favorite NFL team has played its last down. Even then most wait until the conference tournaments begin before immersing themselves in the college basketball season.As ominous as the state of the college game may sound, it’s not all bad.The one piece of college basketball that no force on the planet can dilute is the NCAA Tournament. The fact that the NBA has become more popular over the last few years doesn’t take away from the excitement generated by March Madness.It’s hard to argue that the first weekend of the big dance isn’t the most exciting four days of sports of the year. Fantasy Football may reign atop the sports-gambling community in terms of money, but from the amateur to the self-described expert, there are likely many more “bracketologists” than Fantasy Football managers.Although, regardless of the NCAA tournament’s popularity, the talent at the college level has still suffered.Even though the NBA has an age limit, players are still allowed to abscond from academic responsibility after a single year of college service, reducing the amount of talent available to coaches and their programs.Unfortunately for the NCAA, that rule will never change as the NBA stands to make hoards of money on those players ready to make a splash at the professional level.And because those great players often leave early, the rivalries that once burned between storied programs are all but extinguished. The fans try to drive the rivalries that remain, but the players who stay in school for one year can neither invest in a program’s history nor contribute to it.As cynical as it may sound, the college game has evolved into a minor-league system for the NBA. But don’t fret; the NCAA will always have its place, especially in parts of the country that don’t currently host an NBA franchise, and always during that magical time in March.last_img read more
