It was an “urgency,” she says. Starting with one simple notebook, Sheena Rose would eventually turn her house into an art-filled exhibition space, attracting hundreds of visitors and international attention. That was only the beginning. In a country without a modern art museum, Rose took her creations to the city streets, saw them featured on book covers and traveled south to create billboards in Suriname. She exploded on social media, and her work eventually reached international collections and art biennales. (Photo vi IDB) Leading by example, Rose believes that the region’s talent can spur economic growth. “I’ve been doing this for years to prove what creativity can do, to show how to be successful,” she says. “Dream, don’t give up and keep working.

Profession struggling to ‘figure out’ EY Law

first_imgSenior lawyers at global accountancy giant EY say the new entrant into the legal services market has benefited from the legal profession’s struggle to ‘figure us out’.EY Law’s Matthew Kellett (pictured), head of law, financial services, told the Gazette that many solicitors still referred to the ‘big four’ accountancy firms as ‘accountants’.But Kellett stressed that just over half of EY’s business is management consultancy: ‘We are an accountancy firm culturally but not a firm of accountants. It suits us that people cannot figure us out or have not done so yet.’Philip Goodstone, head of law, UK and Ireland, said the firm’s competitors are ‘whoever is strong’ in any market EY Law is competing for work.Goodstone said EY Law is ‘not trying to replace what the market already has’. But he added: ‘If we cannot position ourselves differently and distinctly, there’s no point doing what we do.‘Our fixation is on what we’re doing, not on how the market chooses to box us.’EY became the third of the ‘big four’ to be granted an alternative business structure licence by the Solicitors Regulation Authority in 2014 along with PwC Legal and KPMG. Deloitte has said it has no plans to go down the ABS route.EY said at the time it expected to have a legal presence in more than 80 jurisdictions by 2017.‘Even the biggest magic circle firms have a footprint in about 20 jurisdictions. We do other assignments where we’re covering 70 jurisdictions,’ Kellett said.At present the UK team has more than 40 lawyers, with plans to grow to 60 by the end of June. Goodstone said the UK team ‘should be something like 150 people or maybe more’ by 2020. The financial services legal team could grow to 75-100 lawyers, Kellett said.The UK team will also take on between four and six trainees this year. Kellett said the financial services team will ‘get some trainees in due course’.Goodstone added that growth was ‘not just a numbers game for us. We’re not looking to build just for building’s sake. Success for me will be when we get our first internally promoted partners’.last_img read more

Government workers lead Zimbabwe ‘March against Sanctions’

first_imgUS extends sanctions against Zimbabwe Obama extends sanctions against Zimbabwe before leaving office Zambians march against graft in governmentcenter_img Zimbabweans enjoyed a day off from work on Friday after their government declared a public holiday, saying people should demonstrate against U.S. sanctions rather than head to their jobs.Photo courtesy: APA News  Zimbabwe First Lady Auxilla Mnangagwa and ZANU-PF members lead march against sanctions in Harare.Led by Mnangagwa’s wife Auxillia, about 7,000 government supporters bussed from across Zimbabwe marched for 5 km to the national stadium in Harare.Singing and dancing, they waved placards inscribed “No sanctions, no discrimination, sanctions new version of slavery,” and “Enough is enough, remove sanctions now.”President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s government blames years of U.S. sanctions for devastating economic conditions including galloping inflation and severe shortages of basic goods and servicesSanctions against some individuals in the ruling Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front and businesses associated with them were imposed back in 2003. The U.S. has made periodic amendments to include people the State Department believes are responsible for human-rights abuses or enriching themselves at the country’s expense.The sanctions are “an act of terrorism against Zimbabwe,” said Zanu-PF’s spokesman, Simon Khaya Moyo. Zimbabwe has received more than $3 billion in U.S. aid since 1980 and at least $300 million this year alone, the U.S. Ambassador to Zimbabwe Brian Nichols said in an interview with newspaper publisher Trevor Ncube that was posted on the U.S. embassy’s Twitter page.The U.S. is Zimbabwe’s single-biggest donor. Despite diplomatic tension between the two countries, American aid kept Zimbabweans from starvation after former president Robert Mugabe authorized the often violent seizure of about 90% of all white-owned farms between 2000 and 2012. That cost the country millions of jobs and saw farm exports almost disappear.Zimbabwe also has rallied regional neighbors to support its fight to have the sanctions lifted. Neighboring South Africa’s ruling African National Congress said its secretary-general Ace Magashule would join an anti-sanctions “picket” at a popular border crossing.The European Union, which also came under criticism from some at the rally, said it has not imposed sanctions on Zimbabwe. “Our restrictive measures comprise of a travel ban and asset freeze against former presidential couple, a ban for European companies to do business with Zimbabwe Defense Industries, and an arms embargo. That’s all,” the EU mission tweeted.Relatedlast_img read more

Your Voice: Maxfield apartment proposal a poor fit

first_img admin Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window) TO THE EDITOR:I am opposed to the proposed plan for redevelopment of the Maxfield Training Center (MTC) property located in downtown Farmington, Michigan. This plan was presented at a public hearing on Monday, July 9, at 7 p.m., at Farmington City Hall.The plan calls for 115 rental apartments and 175 surface parking spaces with three 4-story buildings (48 feet tall.) The high density apartments proposed for this relatively small site is a poor fit for residential neighborhood and for the nearby downtown Farmington.The MTC property abuts the residential Historic District. This charming, walkable neighborhood has value to the city that extends beyond its charm.It has higher property values than non-historic district neighborhoods (a nationwide finding). The Historic District neighborhood also gives authenticity and character to the commercial shopping district. A dense, high story apartment threatens this Historic District.The 115 apartments will bring 150 to 250 vehicles with it. The city does not have parking or roads to handle this increased volume of vehicles. Do not follow in Ann Arbor’s footsteps and render parking so difficult that potential shoppers/diners/browsers turn around and go home because they cannot park the car.Sincerely,Marilyn WeimarFarmington Reported bylast_img read more
