The genius of Dr Allinson

first_imgOver the past year we have grown to love the undisputed godfather of bowel regulation via his bygone missives, resurrected in BB. But how much do we really know about him? Here’s a remarkable insight into his daily routine – an example we should perhaps all strive to follow. This is especially true when it come to spicing up your life – what better way to treat yourself than with a bowl of boiled onions?The doctor’s day: “I rise between 7am and 8am as a rule, and wash. While still wet, I dry my face, ears and neck, and then give my body a vigorous rubbing with the towel, and get it into a glow. My head gets washed only every three weeks, as I find too much soap causes scurf in the head, bleaches the hair, and makes it brittle. Occasionally, I go in for a little mild exercise before dressing, such as throwing my arms about, or stooping in various ways to exercise the muscles. When dressed, I go out for half an hour’s walk before breakfast, no matter how cold, wet or foggy. My dinner, at 3pm, varies a little. When I am using my brain more than usual, I dine on bread and fruit.”Two or three days a week, I have a plain cooked dinner, composed of a vegetable soup, milk pudding or stewed fruit. Tea, at 9pm, is a repetition of breakfast; for a change, I may have beetroot, celery, or boiled or fried onions.”last_img read more

As work on lethal bird flu research resumes, debate continues

first_imgLast week, an international group of scientists announced their intention to resume research on the potentially deadly H5N1 bird flu virus after a year’s hiatus, even as debate over the safety of the research continued.Researchers from the Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam and the University of Wisconsin-Madison created new strains of bird flu to test their ability to spread in ferrets, hoping they could glean clues as to how the disease might spread in humans. They agreed to a self-imposed research moratorium in January 2012 after wide concerns arose about safety and terrorism. On January 23, 2013, the Rotterdam and Wisconsin scientists declared an end to the moratorium. They noted that, over the past year, the World Health Organization and several countries have issued safety guidelines for bird flu researchers—and argued that the benefits of conducting the research outweigh the risks. In the United States, the National Institutes of Health is still debating the issue and plans to issue guidelines about such research soon.In the wake of the scientists’ announcement, a January 26, 2013 New York Times editorial emphasized the need for caution. A January 23, 2013 Nature editorial urged continued debate on the matter, noting that there has still been no “irreproachable, independent risk-benefit analysis of such research.” Read Full Storylast_img read more

Notre Dame welcomes junior parents to campus

first_imgTonight marks the beginning of Junior Parents Weekend, a three-day event when sons and daughters of Notre Dame will show their parents how they have spent the past three years. JPW co-chair Marta Stepien said the weekend will give parents of junior students a unique opportunity to share in their children’s college experience. “It’s really a setting for both parents and students to get to know the energy and environment of the school,” Stepien said. The weekend festivities will kick off with an evening Gala, followed by a Saturday of collegiate workshops hosted by each of the four colleges, she said. After a Saturday night mass, students and their parents will gather for a President’s Dinner at the Joyce Center. Stepien said the seating arrangement of the dinner will allow students to bond with their parents while also becoming better acquainted with the families of their friends and classmates. “We set up the seating so that everyone sits with their friends, and all their families are together,” Stepien said. “Not only do you get to spend time with your parents, but also with the people you chose to sit with and their parents.” Stepien said the weekend concludes with a brunch Sunday morning in the Joyce Center. Stepien said she expects this year’s JPW will be extremely successful. The rise in ticket sales for weekend events demonstrated an unexpected rise in student enthusiasm, she said. “In preemptive tickets sales we have surpassed the total people expected from the past 10 years,” Stepien said. “However, we’re still hoping that even more parents and students will show up.” Despite the time-intensive effort required to plan and coordinate JPW, the job was not stressful due to the devotion and hard work of her co-workers, who ultimately made the planning experience a positive one, Stepien said. “I’m really just happy that I get to be a part of it all,” Stepien said. Stepien said parents will not only see what their sons and daughters are studying academically, but also how they relax outside of the confines of the classroom. This makes JPW a very special weekend, she said. “At Notre Dame, there’s such a balance between work and play that students really want to show their parents what they do in the classroom, but also what they do to unwind,” Stepien said.last_img read more

Vermont’s community banks hit by FDIC as big banks fail

first_imgBy James Dwinell. Vermont Business Magazine. May 20, 2010 -When the widows and orphans of Vermont opened the annual report from their home town bank, they may have read something similar to the letter to shareholders of the Randolph National Bank, a $160,000,000 bank founded in 1875 and headquartered in that town. Chairman John Osha wrote, To help fund the massive losses and risks throughout the nation, the FDIC dramatically increased (our) deposit insurance premium ¦from $14,000 in 2008 to more than $330,000 in 2009. Given the interest rate environment and the difficult economy, we would have been reasonably pleased with our earnings if they were not significantly diminished by the FDIC assessment (and thereby reducing our earnings by 54 percent).To ensure that this was not an aberration, we called Mark Young, President of the First National Bank Orwell, a $40,000,000 bank founded in 1832.Young said, It was not a happy day. Vermont banks are prudent and are not in trouble. Our FDIC premium which had been $8,585 jumped to $70,038. Not just that, they took three more years of premiums from us, totaling $230,077.The most troubling part of this is that it was not necessary for the FDIC to take our money. The bank bailout legislation included a provision allowing the FDIC to borrow money from the United States Treasury to protect deposits up to the temporary new limit of $250,000.The Director of Public Affairs for the FDIC, Andrew Gray, defended its decision, saying, Yes, we could have borrowed the money from the United States Treasury, but we did not think that it was proper to rely on the taxpayers to protect the depositors. After analysis, we thought that the losses could be absorbed by the industry to meet our obligations.How bad is the situation? In 2005 and 2006 there were no bank failures, in 2007 there were three. Then came the financial crisis: 2008-25 failures, 2009-140 failures and so far this year, 72 failures.Why do banks fail? Gray said, We use the Camels rating system: capital, assets, management, earnings, liquidity, and sensitivity to risk. On a 1-5 system, banks with ratings in the 4-5 range are in trouble in many of those areas.Gray said, We asked the banks and they gave us the cash for the increased premium.Young said, The FDIC did not ask us, they notified us, and we did not give them the money, they just took the money out of our bank. In a slight of hand according to Gray, the FDIC allows the banks to continue to show the now-absent prepaid cash on their balance sheet until the year in which the expense is recognized.Steve Marsh, President of the Community National Bank, a $510,000,000 founded in 1851 and headquartered in Derby, said, Vermont banks have done really well in this environment. Though Vermonters are socially liberal, they are fiscally conservative. The FDIC special assessment was a good outcome which could have been much worse. The losses from failed banks were wholly funded without any government money. We did however reduce our dividend by 29 percent.Ken Gibbons, president of the $450,000,000 Union Bank, founded in 1891 and headquartered in Morrisville said, Yes, we too paid up, a total of $2,491,085, and this was the straw which caused us to lower our dividend 11 percent. While I do appreciate the FDIC s Chair Shelia Bair, and her work, my issue with this decision is that the community banks did not create the problem, yet it is the community banks which have to solve the problem. Congress is trying to address this problem retroactively by changing how the FDIC assesses banks. Because big banks raise most of their money through bonding and other devices, not deposits as do community banks, the new banking law has proposed that the FDIC assessment will include this money as well as deposits. Nonetheless, $45 billion (according to the FDIC) was taken from the community banks. My big gripe is that we had all that money taken from small towns all over the United States and we can no longer lend that money to our customers.David Carle, spokesman for Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT), said the Senate indeed addressed the issue Gibbons mentioned. “On May 6, the Senate adopted the Tester Amendment by a vote of 98-0 (Leahy voted aye) to change the assessments to be based on a bank s liabilities essentially any insured deposits plus other borrowings by the bank. That would result in the biggest banks, which raise less of their capital from insured depositors, paying higher amounts into the insurance fund than they currently do. (Connecticut Democrat Senator Christopher Dodd) said this on the amendment: ‘The change will help to ease the burden of FDIC assessments on our community banks by requiring the largest banks in the country to shoulder a little more of the responsibility to rebuild and maintain a sound deposit insurance fund’.The United States Treasury did come to the aid of the nation’s reckless big banks with almost three quarters of a trillion of stabilization money, but when it came to the prudent community bank, they took $45 billion, and left a hole for those depending on those banks for dividends and small business loans. FROM THE AMERICAN BANKERS ASSOCIATION. September 29, 2009FDIC Proposes Banks Prepay Three Years of PremiumsThe FDIC Board this morning proposed a Deposit Insurance Fund restoration plan that requires banks to prepay, on Dec. 30, 2009, their estimated quarterly risk-based assessments for the fourth quarter of 2009 and for all of 2010, 2011 and 2012. Under the plan — which would apply to all banks except those with liquidity problems — banks would be assessed through 2010 according to the risk-based premium schedule adopted earlier this year. However, beginning Jan. 1, 2011, the base rate would increase by 3 basis points. (See chart below. Banks would prepay the base rate only and would true up their premiums each quarter.)The proposal is expected to provide FDIC with $45 billion in cash that the agency needs to resolve the increasing number of bank failures, which are expected to cost $100 billion between 2009 and 2013. It does so without hitting bank earnings as hard as a second special assessment would since prepaying allows banks to keep the premiums on their books as an asset until the payments are booked by the FDIC on a quarterly basis.ABA has worked with the FDIC for several months to suggest realistic alternatives to another special assessment, which FDIC agreed would put too much burden on bank earnings. FDIC also agreed prepayment was preferable to tapping the agency s Treasury line of credit. In choosing this path, it should be clear to the public that the industry will not simply tap the shoulder of the increasingly weary taxpayer, said FDIC Chairman Sheila Bair. This proposal is a vote of confidence for the banking industry’s resilience and will continue to recover its strength as we work through the significant challenges ahead.”ABA echoed FDIC s concerns. The proposal ¦ reinforces the fact that it is the banking industry that is fully responsible for the financial security of the agency, ABA Chief Economist Jim Chessen said. At this critical time, when the economy is just beginning its recovery, looking to options that are less pro-cyclical and that spread the cost over time is the right policy.A bank would be permitted to transfer any portion of its prepaid assessment to another institution, after filing notification requirements. The plan also extends the DIF restoration period from seven to eight years. A 30-day comment period will follow the proposal s publication in the Federal Register.
