With snowfall totals down by about half and March temperatures soaring into the 80s, skier visits were off by more than 20 percent in the Northeast — the worst season in two decades.

Finextra    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In the trade life cycle, central counterparties play a critical role in post-trade management.

Risk management is the core function of CCPs. In addition, some CCPs offer other services such as delivery management and transaction management, providing clients with a seamless post-trade experience. With the services that CCPs provide, clearing house members can enjoy the benefit of lower settlement costs, increased operational efficiency and reduced risk through robust risk management. More

Businesses and households expect reliable electricity to be available at the flick of a switch. But the frequency of large-scale blackouts in the United States has not fallen in the last 30 years, and big blackouts remain a common occurrence throughout emerging markets. The risk of massive failures affecting the supply to millions of customers and darkening whole regions or countries may even be increasing as demand rises, especially for air conditioners, and electricity networks are integrated over increasingly wide areas.

Dealing with complex gender-discrimination issues in the workplace
Corporate Counsel    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
For the first time in history, women are half of all U.S. workers, and mothers are the primary or co-bread winners in nearly two-thirds of American families. The recent economic downturn accelerated this trend: Men lost three-quarters of the jobs shed from December 2007 to October 2009. Consequently, gender discrimination has become not just a women's issue, but a family issue that has taken center stage in the country's legal and political arena. More
