The Windows 8 Finance App Gets New Improvements

California GOP violated campaign finance rules, watchdog says

Even though no details on this new build has been provided at the time of writing this article, this particular version most likely comes to address some of the bugs found by Microsoft engineers in older releases. As a result, expect the Finance app to load faster on both Windows 8 and Windows RT , while also offering a much more stable overall experience on either platform. Designed for Windows, the Finance app puts control at your fingertips. Swipe through colorful charts for a quick read on the day's events.

In all, the state GOP provided $1.9 million in contributions, in-kind services and loans to the group Fairness and Accountability in Redistricting (FAIR), which qualified a ballot measure to overturn the new state Senate redistricting maps. After the Supreme Court found the maps were properly drawn, FAIR dropped its opposition to the redistricting plan. An investigation by the state Fair Political Practices Commission found that the state party failed to meet deadlines for disclosing five contributions to FAIR. By failing to both timely file required ballot measure contribution reports and properly itemize contributions on those contribution reports, your client has violated the [Political Reform] Act, FPPC enforcement chief Gary Winuk wrote to GOP attorney Charles Bell Jr. in a letter released this week.

OUR VIEW: Campaign finance laws need teeth

Credit: Reuters/Adnan Abidi NEW DELHI | Thu Aug 29, 2013 8:46am EDT NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Indian Finance Minister P. Chidambaram on Thursday asked state-run banks to ensure flow of credit to every sector of industry, indicating the need for funding projects amid an economic slowdown. The banks have been asked to assist industrial borrowers who were facing difficulties and be sympathetic towards genuine defaulters, Chidambaram told a parliamentary panel attached to the finance ministry. Economic growth virtually halved in two years to 5 percent in the fiscal year that ended in March -- the lowest level in a decade -- and most economists surveyed by Reuters in the past week expect 2013/14 to be worse.

In February, Silvia paid a $400 fine for using a public employee, Fall River Planning Board member Ernest Edwards, as his campaign treasurer. Edwards paid a $100 fine for the violation. While Silvia said he did not know Edwards role on the planning board disqualified him from serving as treasurer, when in doubt its best to find out. To his credit, Silvia said that hes brought on a new treasurer and bookkeeper to clean up the mess. This time, theres a laundry list of violations: Silvia admitted to excess contributions, disguising the true source of contributions, filing inaccurate and incomplete campaign finance reports, failing to keep complete records and taking corporate contributions that violate campaign finance rules.

Silvia said the investigation started in December before he was sworn into office after what had been a contentious race with incumbent Kevin Aguiar. Im glad its been resolved, Silvia said, Its been painful, but in the eight months Ive been in office, I never allowed it to interfere with the work Ive done for my constituents and my work at the Statehouse. Silvia said he has already paid half of the civil fine, which is ahead of the payment schedule set up by the OCPF. He has until March 1, 2015, to pay the full amount of the fine, and if he complies with the agreement, which includes filing additional campaign finance reports with OCPF, an agreed suspended forfeiture of $10,000 would be waived. Among the specific violations, Silvia spent $25,800 directly from a bank account listed under the name of Colette Matarese, who the representative described as a longtime friend and companion.

India's finance minister tries to stem panic

shri chidambaram india finance minister "We believe that the rupee is undervalued and has overshot what is generally believed to be a reasonable and appropriate level," he said, according to a written statement. "Capital inflows will, in due course, correct the position." India has been caught up in an emerging markets sell-off , triggered by talk of tighter U.S. monetary policy .

German finance minister: future aid to Greece will be much smaller than existing bailout deals

Consumer Finance Company Coming Soon to Cleveland, OH

So I am glad that the public has now paid close attention to what I have been saying again and again for a long time ... we will have to concern ourselves in the middle of next year with new measures for Greece. A new IMF working paper offered a different explanation of why the lending agency erred in underestimating the impact of austerity measures on Greeces economy. In June, the IMF said it had miscalculated the effect that cutting government spending would have on the Greek economy and that this had worsened the countrys deep recession, now in its sixth year. A new working paper released this week said gross domestic product forecast errors for Greece were due more to over-optimism on potential growth and less to do with misjudging the impact of spending cuts. The paper also blamed Greeces government in part for failing to implement changes in the structure of the economy more quickly and efficiently and added that political and social upheaval also undermined progress.

Personal Finance: High-rate loans get scrutiny

columnist mug buck However, the available evidence suggests that if anything the reverse has happened, (see table). While 80% of FTSE Financial Directors continue to hold one or more accounting qualifications (and many of those that dont have an MBA or some other higher qualification typically relevant to their industry), it is evident that most still hold a qualification from one of the two bodies that are more orientated towards financial accounting rather than those that are more focused on management accounting. Despite the increasing focus on value creation, my guess is this is never going to change much even over the next twenty years because listed companies always need a head of finance who can tick all the traditional boxes of financing, M&A, compliance, reporting, taxation and investor relations. Such experience is undoubtedly best gained by spending part of ones career in an advisory role in one of the big accounting groups rather than diligently working away inside companies as a value-adding partner to ones peers, only to hit a glass ceiling when it comes to getting the senior position. Just isnt going to happen, is it?

India finance minister seeks relief for rupee

Indias large current account deficit - the broadest measure of trade - must be funded with foreign capital, and the country is seen as one of the most vulnerable among emerging market nations whose currencies are under pressure globally. Indias rupee recovered from historic lows against the dollar Friday, marking its biggest single-day gain in nearly a year, but analysts warned the currencys overall trend was still bearish. The rupee, one of Asias worst performing currencies, bounced back 2.09 percent - its biggest one-day gain since September 2012 - to end trade at 63.20 Friday, up from its record closing low of 64.55 the previous day. The Indian unit, which had hit a new lifetime intraday low of 65.56 Thursday, was boosted Friday by comments by Chidambaram and the Reserve Bank of India.

German finance minister sees signs ECB will raise rates

The Finance Co. To Recover Sussex College Investment

"The central bank has announced it will raise rates again when the economy improves. That is good." ECB chief Mario Draghi actually said after the last meeting on rates on August 1 that rates will remain low for some time. The ECB has based this 'forward guidance' on the inflation outlook remaining subdued, and growth weak. "The Governing Council confirms that it expects the key ECB rates to remain at present or lower levels for an extended period of time," Draghi said after the ECB's August 1 meeting.

A senior official at TFC said, this flippant attitude to the legalities is very strange for a company that has been set up using funds from the public. Adding to the strange set of affairs, a further sum of Rs 159 million was written off to other Ceylinco related companies. Although Sussex maintains that the agreements with TFC have been terminated, Sussex continues to occupy property belonging to TFC fuelling a string of legal cases. In March 2009 the ownership of Ceylinco Sussex Educational Services Limited included: 5,000,095 shares to Ceylinco Tax and Financial Consultants Limited. In turn this company listed amongst its more significant shareholders Sunil Jayatissa with 5,001 shares, Malini Sabaratnam 2,501 shares and that indomitable duo, Lalith and Secille Kotelawala 10,002 shares automatically becoming the majority shareholders of the voting stock in Ceylinco Tax and Financial Consultants.

India's finance minister tries to stem panic

Chidambaram tried to restore confidence even as he acknowledged that the country was facing a challenging time. "We believe that the rupee is undervalued and has overshot what is generally believed to be a reasonable and appropriate level," he said, according to a written statement. "Capital inflows will, in due course, correct the position." India has been caught up in an emerging markets sell-off , triggered by talk of tighter U.S. monetary policy .

"Low rates are above all an expression of insecurity on debt markets. That cannot last forever - even if it is a relief to the federal budget," he said.

ECB chief Mario Draghi actually said after the last meeting on rates on August 1 that rates will remain low for some time.

But after 20 years of hearing that the role of finance is shifting towards helping develop strategy and increasing partnering with the business, one would have thought that the qualifications, career paths, and origins of these finance leaders would have begun to show some signs of change.

One in eight still lives in a slum in the region; so there is tremendous scope for collaboration between governments, businesses and civil society to improve the situation," said Rick Hathaway, Vice President for Asia-Pacific, Habitat for Humanity International. He added: "The traditional approach to tackling poverty housing by simply building more homes is one dimensional and limiting. Solving the problem requires addressing affordability of housing finance, climate change and disaster resiliency, land rights inequality, infrastructure planning, basic services provision, sustainable livelihoods, and adoption of green solutions. These are touch points that will be up for discussion at the forum." Among the confirmed participants are key policy makers, business titans, and thought leaders from humanitarian agencies and research institutions.

Finance is the Biggest Sector Once Again - Real Time Insight

So why were earnings in the Finance sector so hot? These two charts will tell you pretty much everything you need to know: (Improving credit quality is a good thing, but as a bank, I'd rather have strong loan growth and net interest margin expansion boosting my bottom line than simply taking a lower provision for loan losses... but I digress.) Mr. Mian also points out in his article that the Finance sector has reclaimed its leadership role in the S&P 500, as it now contributes a higher percentage of earnings than any other sector for the first time since the financial crisis.

Finance Ministry seeks cabinet nod for stuck infra projects

These include Hindalco Industries' 3.59 lakh tonne a year aluminium smelter project at Lapanga in Odisha and Hyderabad metro rail project being executed by L&T. "We have sought specific comments from the concerned ministries on pending approvals," a senior finance ministry official said on condition of anonymity. "The Cabinet Committee on Investment will then take up these projects to ensure expeditious clearances." The government is hoping the move will spur credit growth while checking the rising tide of bad loans in the banking sector. "Some projects have been cleared in the last two months and there has been a spurt in credit growth as well. We believe that once these projects get on track, the NPAs (non-performing assets) will also come down accordingly," the official said.
