Aimias appoints Jeremy Rabe as CEO next step in a recent shareholder

MONTREAL — Loyalty rewards company Aimia Inc. announced Jeremy Rabe as its new president and chief executive.Rabe is one of two directors who joined the company’s board last month as part of an agreement with investment firm Mittleman Brothers LLC, which has sought changes at Aimia.He will lead the Montreal-based company as it prepares for a split with Air Canada, which has decided to quit Aimia’s Aeroplan program and start its own loyalty plan in mid-2020.Rabe was elected to Aimia’s board in April, following shareholder criticism of the company’s performance.He was founder and a managing partner of On Point Loyalty, a boutique investment and advisory firm focused on the airline loyalty industry.Rabe replaces David Johnston who agreed to step down as CEO shortly before Rabe and Phillip Mittleman were elected to the Aimia board last month at the company’s annual meeting.Brian Edwards, the founder and former chief executive of BCE Emergis Inc., was also elected as a new independent director at the shareholder meeting.Mittleman has agreed that until July 1, 2019, that it won’t take any actions against Aimia, such as proposing the removal of board members, engaging in short selling or making disparaging comments about the company.Companies in this story: (TSX:AIM TSX:AC) read more

Brock grad beat cancer twice on the road to his degree

Watch the full afternoon Convocation ceremony below: On the road to his degree, Paul Ferrara had to overcome obstacles most university students can’t imagine.The 24 year old battled thyroid cancer twice as he worked towards his Concurrent Bachelor of Education degree.His fellow graduates celebrated his accomplishments in the face of adversity Wednesday clapping and cheering as he received the Board of Trustees Spirit of Brock award.Ferrara said the Brock community pulled together to support him during both his bouts with cancer, in 2010 and 2013.Paul FerraraHis first diagnosis came shortly before he was to start at Brock. He didn’t let it hold him back.“Three weeks prior to starting the program at Brock University, I had a total thyroidectomy and radical neck dissection due to an advanced case of thyroid cancer,” Ferrara said.During his first year, he took on a reduced course load so he could go to intensive physical therapy and radiation.Cancer once again touched Ferrara’s life during his third year and he had to undergo another surgery, radiation and voice therapy.Between treatments and clinical visits, Ferrara continued to focus on his studies and community outreach.“I felt a lot of stress due to my medical situation, but I wanted to continue moving forward throughout my treatments,” he said. “I knew that moving forward and doing something that I loved would help me focus on my goals.”Ferrara reached one of his goals Wednesday, when he graduated cancer free and with a Dean’s medal.He has always wanted to work with children and since his cancer fight, he’s learned he wants to help students with special needs.“I draw on my own experiences to connect with students who are struggling in the school system,” he said. “My strengths come from my past experiences and I connect with students on a personal level.”Ferrara is an avid volunteer and is especially proud of his work with the Brock Learning Lab as a math and reading tutor.The Spirit of Brock award is given to students who exemplify leadership, innovation, courage, inspiration and community involvement.The graduate student presented with the Spirit of Brock award in the Faculty of Education was Katlynne Smith who spent her seven years at Brock as a mentor and leader.She volunteered as a special needs activity partner and worked with children with Autism Spectrum Disorder in summer programming.Katlynne SmithAs a member of the faculty’s Reading Clinic, Smith started a barbecue event to raise money for students wishing to attend tutoring but who were unable to afford it.She received SSHRC and faculty research grants for her work on inclusive practices for students with autism.The convocation speaker for the Faculty of Education was Nicola Simmons, who was the recipient of the faculty’s Excellence in Teaching award.Simmons, Assistant Professor in the Department of Graduate and Undergraduate Studies in Education, told the students getting a degree is much like writing an academic paper in that they now get to answer the questions ‘so what?’ and ‘now what?’Nicola Simmons was recognized with the Faculty of Education Excellence in Teaching Award Wednesday before giving the convocation address.“The ‘so what’ is about the value of the degree. You’ve invested time, money, emotion and energy and you might reasonably ask ‘what will this degree get me and what is it worth?’” she said. “What your degree will be worth depends on how you spend it. How will you make it worth more than a piece of paper? How will you use it?”She encouraged the students to realize they now have a voice, can write well and have met incredible people along the way.Simmons said her mentor, the late Brock professor Michael Kompf, taught her to always pay it forward.“Make your ‘so what’ and ‘now what’ the ways in which the gifts and privilege of your degree can benefit others,” said Simmons, who is committed to connecting student learning with personal interests, real-world activities, and 21st-century learning technologies. This is evident in the many courses she has developed and taught, both virtually and face-to-face.Simmons, who rides equestrian dressage, involves her students in scholarship, co-presenting at conferences or co-authoring with them.In addition to her teaching, Simmons is strongly engaged in educational leadership in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning nationally and internationally.President and Vice-Chancellor Jack Lightstone congratulated the graduates and told them in his nearly 100 convocation ceremonies, they were by far the most boisterous and excited.Convocation continues Thursday with the Goodman School of Business and Friday with the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences. read more

Introducing NFL Elo Ratings

If you followed FiveThirtyEight’s coverage during the World Cup, you know that we’re big fans of the World Football Elo Ratings. They’re based on a relatively simple system developed by the physicist Arpad Elo to rate chess players. But they can be adapted fairly easily for other head-to-head competitions from baseball to backgammon.We thought we’d have a little fun and extend them to American football. In an accompanying post, you’ll find our initial Elo ratings for all 32 NFL teams (at this point, the ratings are based on a team’s standing at the end of last season, discounted slightly to reflect reversion to the mean). We’ve also developed a simulator program that plays out the NFL schedule thousands of times and projects a team’s likelihood of making the playoffs, based on a team’s record up to that point in time, its Elo rating, its remaining schedule and the NFL’s various tiebreaker rules. We plan to update these projections at the end of every week.But first (inspired somewhat by The New York Times’s personification of its election model, Leo), we thought we’d “interview” the Elo system about how it does its work.FiveThirtyEight: What are some of some of your best qualities?Elo: I’m simple, transparent and easy to work with. I can do a lot with a little, such as calculating point spreads and the probability of either team winning a game.Can I use you to beat Vegas?I wouldn’t try that. Vegas lines account for a much wider array of information than I do. When Nate backtested me, he found that I got 51 percent of games right against the point spread. That’s not nearly enough to cover the house’s cut, much less to make a living.We noticed that you have the Seattle Seahawks favored by 10 points in their Thursday-night game against the Green Bay Packers, while Vegas has the Seahawks as six-point favorites instead.That’s a perfect example. Has anything strange been going on with the Packers?Well, their star quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, was injured. Now he’s back!If this Mr. Rodgers fellow is as good as you say he is, that could account for the difference. I don’t know anything about him. I only keep track of the final scores, the dates of games and where the games were played.So what good are you?Think of me as a benchmark. I do a pretty good job of accounting for the basic stuff — wins and losses, margin of victory, strength of schedule. I also retain a memory from past seasons, so I know that the Jacksonville Jaguars aren’t as likely to win the Super Bowl as the Denver Broncos. Can we get to some more technical questions?Um … what are your parameters?That’s more like it. Like K, for instance; K is my favorite parameter.What makes K so special?K tells me how much to update my ratings after each game. In a sport like baseball, where there are lots of games, any one additional game doesn’t tell you all that much, so K takes on a low value. In the NFL, it’s much higher. Specifically, it’s the number 20. That may not mean anything to you, but if you set K a lot higher than that, I’d be a nervous wreck and bounce around too much from game to game. And if you made K much lower, I’d be hopelessly sluggish and too slow to notice changes in the quality of team’s play.I noticed the Detroit Lions have an Elo rating of 1467. What does that mean?An average team has an Elo rating of 1500 — so your Lions are not so hot. But it could be a lot worse. In 2009, the Lions got all the way down to a rating of 1223. Most NFL teams wind up in the range of 1300 to 1700.We’re still not quite sure how your ratings work. If you have one team at a 1650 and another at 1400, what does that mean?If it makes things easier, you can translate my ratings into a point spread. Take the difference in my ratings and divide by 25. It’s that simple.So, if one team is rated 250 Elo points higher than the other, that works out to a spread of 10 football points.Precisely.What about home-field advantage?I can account for that, too. Historically, it’s been worth about 65 Elo ratings points or 2.6 NFL points. Just add that to the point spread.What if you want to calculate a team’s probability of winning?That’s pretty easy, too, although you’ll need a formula for it. In a game between Team A and Team B, Team A’s win probability is equal to:Pr(A) = 1 / (10^(-ELODIFF/400) + 1)Where ELODIFF is Team A’s Elo rating minus Team B’s Elo rating.Let’s say Team A wins. Its Elo rating will improve?Yes. One of my more appealing properties is that a team’s Elo rating will always improve after it wins and always decline after it loses. How much it improves will depend on how much of a favorite or an underdog it was.So, like after the 2008 Super Bowl …I can predict where you’re going with that question. I’ll admit that I didn’t have the New York Giants rated so highly compared to the New England Patriots. But the Giants’ Elo rating improved a lot after they won that game — more than the Patriots’ would have if they’d won instead. I may have my flaws, but unlike a lot of you human beings, I know how to fix them. The lower a team is rated, the easier for it to gain ground by proving me wrong.Do you also account for margin of victory?Affirmative. I took some inspiration from the soccer ratings, which account for goal differential in addition to the game result. But this is one of the more complicated parts.For the NFL, I start by adding one point to team’s margin of victory and then take its natural logarithm. Then I multiply that result by the K value. That means I’m more moved by big wins than narrow ones, although there are diminishing returns. I’m not so impressed by the fifth touchdown when a team is ahead 28-0.That seems simple enough.It would be, but that isn’t all there is to it. We haven’t talked about my autocorrelation problem. It’s a little embarrassing.Go on. “Autocorrelation”? Was that the weird David Cronenberg movie?Autocorrelation is the tendency of a time series to be correlated with its past and future values. Let me put this into football terms. Imagine I have the Dallas Cowboys rated at 1550 before a game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Their rating will go up if they win and go down if they lose. But it should be 1550 after the game, on average. That’s important, because it means that I’ve accounted for all the information you’ve given me efficiently. If I expected the Cowboys’ rating to rise to 1575 on average after the game, I should have rated them more highly to begin with.It’s true that if I have the Cowboys favored against the Eagles, they should win more often than they lose. But the way I was originally designed, I can compensate by subtracting more points for a loss than I give them for a win. Everything balances out rather elegantly.The problem comes when I also seek to account for margin of victory. Not only do favorites win more often, but when they do win, they tend to win by a larger margin. Since I give more credit for larger wins, this means that their ratings tend to get inflated over time.Is this also a flaw with the soccer Elo ratings?Possibly. You may want to reconsider what you wrote about Germany.So, how do you correct for this?It isn’t complicated in principle. You just have to discount the margin of victory more when favorites win and increase it when underdogs win. The formula for it is as follows:Margin of Victory Multiplier = LN(ABS(PD)+1) * (2.2/((ELOW-ELOL)*.001+2.2))Where PD is the point differential in the game, ELOW is the winning team’s Elo Rating before the game, and ELOL is the losing team’s Elo Rating before the game.It’s a little ugly, but we all have our vices.I see that you have ratings for this year’s teams, but they haven’t played any games yet! How does that work?I take their rating from the end of last season and discount it slightly. Specifically, I revert it to the mean by one-third. Remember that the mean Elo rating is 1500. So, if a team finished last season with a rating of 1800, I’ll revert it to 1700 when the new season begins. This whole notion of “season” is strange to me, by the way. We don’t have them in chess.For now, the ratings are all about which teams were good last year?Technically speaking, a game affects my ratings forever once it’s played, just with a smaller and smaller weight that gradually diminishes to almost nothing over time. But, yes, for the time being, my ratings are mostly about who was good last season. Games toward the end of the season will count more, especially games during last year’s playoffs.Thanks for taking the time! So, you’re saying we should take the Seahawks?How about a nice game of chess?See the Week 1 Elo ratings and playoff odds. read more

In Russia, Team USA won 28 medals, which was roughly 10 percent of the total medals awarded that year — just one behind the Russians for the overall lead.3After the Russians lost four medals from their initial 2014 total in a doping scandal. But if you were to eliminate events that were introduced in Lillehammer ’94 and beyond, the Americans would have finished with just 11 medals, or roughly 7 percent of the total medals awarded that year in those longer-term sports.With their medals in X-Games sports, Team USA were very nearly on top of the Winter Olympics world in 2014. Without those medals, they would have finished in a relatively pedestrian tie for sixth place.

Calgary ’88 was a low point — American athletes won just six medals. But all that mediocrity has been flipped on its head as the list of events grows.It should be said that the big air crowd aren’t the only American athletes responsible for this recent stretch of Winter Olympic team success (or who’ve benefited from events added to the games in the past three decades): Speedskaters like Apolo Anton Ohno and Shani Davis have had brilliant careers, and their achievements on ice also helped to augment Team USA’s recent medal hauls.To be sure, more traditional Winter Olympians like skiers Ted Ligety, Lindsey Vonn and Mikaela Shiffrin — and their predecessors like Tommy Moe, Picabo Street and Bode Miller — have assured that Team USA remains a threat in the Alpine events. The Americans aren’t exactly Austrians on the slopes, but they’re not exactly Bulgarians, either. But outside of the Alpine realm, don’t expect the Americans to impress in the more historic events: They’ve captured just one medal each in curling, ski jumping and cross-country skiing, and they’ve won exactly zero medals in biathlon.The cynical take is that this stuff looks really good on TV, and it’s all a big ratings grab for NBC, which has owned the U.S. broadcasting rights for the Winter Olympics since 2002. Whatever the impetus for adding new sports, and especially new extreme sports, the Americans continue to capitalize. It should be noted here that Canada has had a similar windfall: While the U.S. has totaled 64 medals in the events introduced in 1994 and beyond,4Through Thursday. Canada has captured 55.The Americans aren’t at the top of the medal table right now, but they still have events like ski aerials, ski slopestyle, ski halfpipe and the debut event of snowboarding big air — the most X-Games-y of X-Games-y sports — so there are plenty more opportunities to do what they do best. Now if only they could figure out how to slide a rock across a narrow sheet of ice toward a bullseye, they’d really be onto something.

In the summer, U.S. swimmers and track stars consistently reign superior — and its gymnasts are usually right there, too. The American basketball team, now borrowed from the NBA, often seems like it could sleep through the first half and still coast past most of the other countries. Because of this, the U.S. has finished atop the medal table for every Summer Games since 1996.In the winter, the U.S. has grown accustomed to a similar degree of success, albeit not with nearly the same level of global domination. Since the U.S. hosted the 2002 Winter Games in Salt Lake City, the Americans have finished no lower than second on the medal table, with the 2010 Vancouver Games providing a high-water mark of 37 medals. So far in Pyeongchang, Team USA has won eight medals through Thursday, and five of those medals were golden.But for anybody old enough to remember the Cold War, American success in the winter may seem a little odd. For decades, the U.S. was pretty, well, meh — never bad enough to get shut out, but more often than not looking up at the Soviets, Austrians and Norwegians. So what changed? The answer is obvious: It’s flying through the air, performing a chicken salad or a double Michalchuk.Since the 1990s, Americans have retained their stranglehold on sports you might see in a Mountain Dew ad. Freestyle skiing aerials were introduced in the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, and snowboarding came along four years later in Nagano, Japan — with more individual events added in these sports each winter cycle.From 1994 to 2014, the U.S. racked up 34 medals in those two disciplines, 18 of which came on the halfpipe alone.1Freestyle skiing and snowboard. The U.S. has been on the same track so far in South Korea. A pair of 17-year-olds named Chloe Kim and Red Gerard — who claimed Olympic gold in women’s halfpipe and men’s slopestyle, respectively — have been the emerging stars. Shaun White, meanwhile, avenged his forgettable performance in Sochi and returned to the top of the men’s halfpipe podium; Jamie Anderson snagged a gold in women’s slopestyle; and Arielle Gold stood next to teammate Kim on the halfpipe podium, a bronze slung around her neck.With those five freestyle medals in the bag, Team USA is well on its way to matching the 11 it won in Sochi. But even when you get away from the halfpipe, the U.S. has capitalized on other newly introduced events as well, such as two-woman bobsled, women’s ice hockey and skeleton.2Men’s skeleton appeared in 1928 and 1948 and returned for good in 2002, with the addition of women’s skeleton.

Trinity breakthrough means a computer harddisks capacity could be increased by 1000

first_img 17,352 Views Sunday 5 Mar 2017, 8:30 AM SCIENTISTS AT TRINITY College Dublin (TCD) have made a breakthrough that could increase computer disk capacity by 1,000-fold.The groundbreaking research at TCD’s CRANN Institute could lead to lengthy and complex calculations, such as database searches, being performed at incredibly high speeds.A team lead by Professor Stefano Sanvito has discovered a new way to make molecular magnets more rigid, allowing them to operate at room temperature – something researchers have been trying to do for over 30 years.Molecular magnets are tiny molecules, often comprising only a handful of atoms, which display the same properties of conventional magnets.If molecular magnets were to be used in hard-disk drives, there is the potential to increase the disk’s capacity up to a thousand times, so that a standard 3.5’ hard-disk would store more than 1,000,000 gigabytes of data. This is because molecular magnets can be packed together at ultra-high density.At present, a hypothetical hard-disk made of magnetic molecules will lose all data unless cooled down to about -200 Celsius.‘Very exciting’ Sanvito described the breakthrough as “very exciting”. It has been detailed in a paper published in the Nature Communications journal.“[It] is of huge interest to the scientific community, who have demonstrated very slow progress to date with the development of molecular magnets that can operate at room temperature. When a magnet is small its magnetic properties degrade rapidly with temperature.“In this paper, we have shown that a drastic improvement in the high-temperature properties of magnetic magnets can be achieved by engineering the molecules to be as rigid as possible,” Sanvito said.He added that the discovery offers real potential for very powerful quantum computers, which “may one day revolutionise computation as we know it”.Read: Apple is changing the iPhone’s charging port againRead: Back from the dead: Nokia relaunches the iconic 3310 Mar 5th 2017, 8:30 AM Trinity breakthrough means a computer hard-disk’s capacity could be increased by 1,000 The discovery could revolutionise computing as we know it.

Wenger turns down PSG offer

first_imgArsene Wenger, who publicly announced his departure from Arsenal, where he spent the last 22 years, has reportedly turned down a big-money offer from Paris Saint-Germain.It is believed there a three-year contract was offered to Wenger and if he was to accept, PSG would be paying him about 15 million euro per year – an offer not many can refuse.However, according to Football Fancast, he is desperately in need of a break as not only has he not taken any rest for the last two decades, but he has built a sentimental relationship with Arsenal.Opinion: Neymar will earn respect back from the PSG fans Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 After completing his incredible return to Parc des Princes, we predict that Neymar will earn the respect back from PSG supporters.The situation between Neymar…Facts are that Les Parisiens are in desperate need of a capable manager as they are currently regarded mostly as a joke – after all the money spent they are yet to win a single European trophy. Wenger is a perfect fit for the role as he has the needed experience to take care of such a squad and could possibly turn them into the top team in Europe.Considering the sum PSG are willing to pay for him and his refusal, it seems like PSG need Wenger way more than he needs them at the current moment.last_img read more

Paul Pogba was key to Frances World Cup title – Lloris

first_imgPaul Pogba was integral to France’s World Cup success, says Hugo LlorisThe under-fire midfielder has once again come under the spotlight due to his troubled relationship with his Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho.The Portuguese coach appeared to criticise Pogba following Les Bleus’ triumph in Russia.While agent Mino Raiola has further fuelled speculation linking Pogba with a move to Barcelona after his outburst earlier this week.But, ahead of Tottenham’s Premier League fixture with United on Monday night, Lloris insisted that Pogba was essential to France’s success in Russia.“We showed that French players have character and that we’re strong together,” he told L’Equipe.“If you’re not strong together, you fall at the first hurdle. There are players who were revelations in that regard.“For example, Paul. People have always been telling him to focus on the team, and he couldn’t have done it any better than during the World Cup.“He was at the team’s service from the start to the end and was rewarded for that. We were all rewarded.”After all the criticism that had been directed at France following a lacklustre qualifying campaign, beating Croatia 4-2 in the final was a particularly satisfying moment for Lloris.“I can’t forget, because sometimes it was over the top,” said the France captain.ole gunnar solskjaer, manchester unitedReport: Up to seven first team players out for United George Patchias – September 13, 2019 Manchester United have some serious injury problems with up to seven first-team players out.This Saturday, United have a Premier League clash with Leicester City….“But the key to my success was not to fall into the trap, to refuse to get into an area I’m not comfortable in, and to stay focused on myself, on the essential things.“That’s what was my strength.”DANS L’HISTOIRE À JAMAIS ??… pic.twitter.com/NmzRHreXj1— Kylian Mbappé (@KMbappe) July 16, 2018Lloris is looking forward to seeing teenage striker Kylian Mbappe develop in the future.He also expressed his regret that Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny was unable to join them after sustaining an Achilles’ tendon injury.“Kylian Mbappe is world champion at 19,” Lloris said.“It’s a career trajectory totally different [than mine]. He has to use that. He should win the Ballon d’Or.“That’s destiny, and it makes me think of those who could have been there, like Lolo [Koscielny] and others.“Those are the ups and downs of a career, and you have to spare a thought for them.”last_img read more

Lets save the bees with machine learning

first_imgMachine learning and all its related forms of “AI” are being used to work on just about every problem under the sun, but even so, stemming the alarming decline of the bee population still seems out of left field. In fact it’s a great application for the technology and may help both bees and beekeepers keep hives healthy.The latest threat to our precious honeybees is the Varroa mite, a parasite that infests hives and sucks the blood from both bees and their young. While it rarely kills a bee outright, it can weaken it and cause young to be born similarly weak or deformed. Over time this can lead to colony collapse.The worst part is that unless you’re looking closely, you might not even see the mites — being mites, they’re tiny: a millimeter or so across. So infestations often go on for some time without being discovered.Beekeepers, caring folk at heart obviously, want to avoid this. But the solution has been to put a flat surface beneath a hive and pull it out every few days, inspecting all the waste, dirt and other hive junk for the tiny bodies of the mites. It’s painstaking and time-consuming work, and of course if you miss a few, you might think the infestation is getting better instead of worse.Machine learning to the rescue!As I’ve had occasion to mention about a billion times before this, one of the things machine learning models are really good at is sorting through noisy data, like a surface covered in random tiny shapes, and finding targets, like the shape of a dead Varroa mite.Students at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland created an image recognition agent called ApiZoom trained on images of mites that can sort through a photo and identify any visible mite bodies in seconds. All the beekeeper needs to do is take a regular smartphone photo and upload it to the EPFL system.[embedded content]The project started back in 2017, and since then the model has been trained with tens of thousands of images and achieved a success rate of detection of about 90 percent, which the project’s Alain Bugnon told me is about at parity with humans. The plan now is to distribute the app as widely as possible.“We envisage two phases: a web solution, then a smartphone solution. These two solutions allow to estimate the rate of infestation of a hive, but if the application is used on a large scale, of a region,” Bugnon said. “By collecting automatic and comprehensive data, it is not impossible to make new findings about a region or atypical practices of a beekeeper, and also possible mutations of the Varroa mites.”That kind of systematic data collection would be a major help for coordinating infestation response at a national level. ApiZoom is being spun out as a separate company by Bugnon; hopefully this will help get the software to beekeepers as soon as possible. The bees will thank them later.last_img read more

Markides says supreme court chief should not be pressured to resign

first_imgFormer Attorney-general Alecos Markides believes Supreme Court President Myron Nicolatos should not resign but he conceded the judicial system needed an overhaul given some outdated attitudes that are seen from a different perspective today.Markides, in an interview with Politis, published on Sunday, was commenting on the furore surrounding Nicolatos, whose critics have focused on the fact that his daughter and sister appeared to have benefited from out-of-court settlements with Bank of Cyprus (BoC) relating to lawsuits they had filed concerning the conversion of their deposits into bonds.Nicolatos had adjudicated in an appeal filed by former BoC CEO Andreas Eliades who had been jailed for market manipulation.In a 2 to 1 decision, the three-bench court found that Bank of Cyprus and Eliades, although they had made false representations about the financial status of the bank, did not do so with intent to manipulate the market but rather to ‘reassure’ shareholders.This news had followed claims first made by lawyer Nicos Clerides, brother of the attorney-general, which sparked the fracas. Clerides claimed, and later provided details, that the courts were controlled by the Polyviou and Chrysafinis law firm.“There is not a single supreme court judge who does not have a child at the law office that promotes the banks’ interests,” the attorney-general’s brother had said of the firm, which represents Bank of Cyprus.On Tuesday, the attorney-general appeared to back up the claims, saying that in supreme court’s final judgement in the market manipulation (insider information) case filed against BoC, “three of the five judges on the appeals court have children or a spouse who are employed at the law firm representing the Bank and its officer in the appeals process.”Citing court transcripts, Clerides said that at the beginning of the appeals process, which got underway on January 11, 2018, none of the members of the supreme court volunteered this information regarding their connection to the defendants’ law firm.Markides, who has worked within the judicial system for almost 50 years, told Politis that Nicolatos should not resign. “Why resign? If he resigns, it will look like a sign of admission and then people will begin say say he is guilty. He cannot, and rightly does not,” he said.Just prior to the interview, Markides let it be known on the record that he acts as the appeal lawyer for Nicolatos and his sister in a case before the supreme court related to a land expropriation case – going back to their father’s time – involving the Cyprus Ports Authority and the construction of Larnaca port“What I personally know is that twice I went to the supreme court [for unrelated cases] and was opposite the [court] president himself and Mr Nicolatos declared publicly that I was his appeal lawyer and asked if there was any objections. And twice the attorney-general’s office said there was no objection and the case could move forward.”Asked about the appearance in court of parents and offspring, Markides said it was wrong to judge practices that have been going on for years by the perceptions of today. He cited the reports of an incidence where lawyer Christos Triandafyllides had appeared before his father Michalakis Triandafyllides.It was not once, said Markides, but dozens of times.“And if you look at the decisions of the Supreme Constitutional Court of 1960, you will see that in many of them, when Michalakis Triandafyllides was a judge, his brother, Andis Triandafyllides, appeared in front of him and, in several cases, his uncle Stelios Pavlides, the one who raised them when their father was murdered,” he added.“It was not considered that this practice was a problem or an impediment because the culture of the era was that judges should not be affected by such relationships. There was a big difference between the relationship of a judge to lawyer and a judge to the litigant,” he said. In the incidences laid out by Nicos Clerides, he said. It was not as if the children working for the law firm in question had appeared before a parent.In the case of Nicolatos’ sister, he said she was a separate person “and had a lawyer, Christos Clerides and we know his relation with Costas Clerides. And Bank of Cyprus tells us that there have been many other similar settlements. And let’s not forget that the case was essentially about Mr Eliades. If Mr Eliades did not win the appeal, the bank would pay a fine? And would the bank be destroyed with a fine, so that all this manoeuvering should be done?”He did concede that the system needed to be looked at to fit more with today’s perceptions.Asked about general standard of judges in Cyprus, Markides said the system was not perfect by any means. “We got the English system and we gave it a very Cypriot colour,” he said.Until recently, he said, someone with minimal service could be appointed to the district court but even in cases where performance was not up to scratch a judge would not be dismissed. “The main problem as I see is the following: You appoint a judge [to the district court], a young lawyer, he gets busy, even under circumstances that are often inhumane because of workload etc., but he’s been dealing for 20 years with private affairs until he happens to go the  court system.  Then he may get to the supreme court and suddenly he is the judge of complicated constitutional issues and public law, without having gone through such matters [in his previous roles],” said Markides, citing as an example a possible constitutional conflict between the House and the executive branch of government.“And now we have set up an Administrative Court with specialised judges for special cases, which could also go to the supreme court judges… but that was not their job when they were in the district court. The House must understand that it is time to see all these issues in a serious way and certainly not to just for the benefit of the [TV] cameras.”On the fact the whole issue would be discussed at House committee on Wednesday, Markides said: “It will not really matter. There will be a meeting, the meeting will be over, they will go out, they will see the microphones, they will say a few words, the Cybc will run the story at night and half the world will shut down the TV.”“In parliamentary committees, the work produced depends whether the MPs do their job well or whether the discussions are held for publicity purposes,” he said.He suggested a separate committee to look at the whole system be set up and make serious recommendations to the executive. “I think this initiative can be taken by the government itself. And because there is now an over-concentration of powers, it may be appropriate to appoint a new official, as independent as the attorney-general who is responsible for investigations and prosecutions…. that is a director of criminal prosecution, as in England,” he said, adding that he sees another weakness in the system in that judges have been isolated from the rest of society “and when you are isolated, other attitudes are created, which slowly make you divorced from the modern perceptions of the lawyers’ family and society as a whole”.Asked whether the public should have confidence in the Cypriot courts, Markides said society must understand that “there is no widespread corruption in the judicial system in Cyprus” though there might be isolated cases. Although they are not known and therefore presumed to exist, it cannot be ruled out that there are, he said.“There may be a matter of improving the quality of judges’ judgments, there may be a matter of inadequacy of those who should not even have been appointed. This is one issue and corruption is another.”To a question as to why no one was punished by the courts for the financial crisis, Markides said all of the cases that did go to court had nothing to do with the destruction of the economy “if you ask me”.“And therefore, whether there was a conviction or whether there was an acquittal was not related to the destruction of the economy. The economy was not destroyed because Eliades said at a general meeting that we have a deficit of 200 million euros while it was 400. That’s not what destroyed the Cypriot economy.”You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoYahoo SearchYou’ve Never Seen Luxury Like This On A Cruise Ship.
