It is aiming to build a €6bn fund by the end of this year. Seen as a bellweather for the private equity industry due to its longevity, the firm’s fundraising will be closely watched by houses in the US and elsewhere looking to drum up investor interest.Private equity firms have struggled to raise capital since the financial crisis, as investors have reduced the number of companies they invest with and how much they put with their preferred managers. Last year, firms raised $225bn (£139bn) globally, the lowest amount since 2004. In 2007, prior to the collapse of Lehman Brothers, private equity houses raised almost $700bn worldwide, according to data provider Preqin. BC Partners won’t use its war chest to go on a spending spree just yet, as it still has enough capital to do at least one more deal from the €5.9bn fund it raised in 2005. whatsapp More From Our Partners Mark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.com BC Partners raises €4bn Sharecenter_img Show Comments ▼ Tuesday 8 March 2011 9:22 pm KCS-content whatsapplast_img read more

Developments in Safronov and Politkovskaya cases heighten concern about government’s intentions

first_imgNews RussiaEurope – Central Asia Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown News RSF_en to go further The announcement that the Moscow prosecutor’s office has concluded that Kommersant defence correspondent Ivan Safronov’s death was suicide, coming amid signs of complete disarray in the Anna Politkovskaya murder investigation, reinforces Reporters Without Borders’ concern about the Russian government’s interest in solving the suspicious deaths of journalists. May 21, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information Organisation September 13, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Developments in Safronov and Politkovskaya cases heighten concern about government’s intentions June 2, 2021 Find out more News Yesterday’s decision by the Moscow prosecutor’s office to close the investigation into the 2 March death of the Kommersant newspaper’s defence correspondent, Ivan Safronov, on the grounds that all the evidence points to suicide, reinforces concern about the Russian government’s desire to solve the suspicious deaths of journalists, Reporters Without Borders said today.“At the time of his death, Safronov was working on sensitive issues such as Russian arms sales in the Middle East, while those close to him say he had no reason to take his own life, so we have a right to question the reasons that led the police and judicial authorities to conclude so quickly that this was suicide,” the press freedom organisation said.“After this decision and the latest developments in the Anna Politkovskaya case, we are very worried about the functioning of the committee that has been set up to supervise the Politkovskaya murder investigation,” Reporters Without Borders added. “We hope it will demonstrate that the authorities are seriously determined to combat impunity in the murders of journalists, but it will not be easy and we will continue to follow the case closely.”Claiming there was no evidence that Safronov’s death was criminal, the Moscow prosecutor’s office yesterday said in a statement: “In his professional activity, Safronov tackled sensitive issues, but these issues were widely covered in other news outlets. It is unlikely that his articles affected anyone’s interests, including the government’s.”Many journalists, including Safronov’s colleagues at Kommersant, question the conclusion reached by the prosecutor’s office. Kommersant deputy editor Ilya Bulavinov told Reporters Without Borders the investigators just went through the motions and had no interest in finding out what really happened. He said none of the people Safronov had quoted in his articles had been questioned“The investigation was very hesitant,” Bulavinov said. “When I was questioned, it was only with great reluctance that they took down the names of the different government institutions I mentioned, for fear that they would have to go and question the people who work there.”Glasnost Defence Foundation president Alexei Simonov told Reporters Without Borders he thought the prosecutor’s office rushed to “conclude that it was suicide without finding evidence that would explain the reason.” He said all of the elements involved in Safronov’s death had not been investigated or made public. He added that if it was not suicide, it was clear why the authorities wanted the case closed.Aged 51, Safronov was a former colonel in the Russian space programme and a specialist in defence issues and Russia’s military-industrial complex. He was killed when he jumped, or was pushed, from the fourth floor of his Moscow apartment building. At the time of his death, he had been working on a story for Kommersant about Russia’s arms sales to Syria and Iran. He did not get to write it.The news agency Interfax meanwhile reported yesterday that a member of the Federal Security Service (FSB), Lt. Col. Pavel Ryaguzov, has been charged under article 285 of the criminal code (concerning “abuse of authority in the exercise of one’s duties) in connection with the Politkovskaya murder. The report was not confirmed by the authorities.The head of the committee that is supposed to be supervising the Politkovskaya investigation, Vladimir Markin, announced on 11 September that 11 prosecutor’s office investigators, including the one leading the investigation, were no longer part of the team. At this point, it is hard to say who is in charge of the investigation. Kommersant says it is inspector Valeri Khomitski.Politkovskaya, who was a well-known critic of President Vladimir Putin and who wrote about the war in Chechnya for the newspaper Novaya Gazeta, was gunned downed in her Moscow apartment building on 7 October 2006.

Judy Chu has called on fellow members of Congress to help stop what she called “hysteria, ignorant attacks and racist assaults that have been fueled by misinformation.’’The Pasadena Democrat, who chairs the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC), authored a letter this week urging her Congressional colleagues to help quell such incidents “by only sharing confirmed and verifiable information pertaining to COVID-19, how it spreads, and how Americans should protect themselves.’’The letter comes at a time of increased reports that Asian Americans have been victims of verbal and physical assaults or denial of services by those fearing the spread of the highly contagious COVID-19 — which is believed to have originated in Wuhan, China, though the specific source there remains unclear.As CNN reported, one woman riding a Los Angeles train recently was targeted in a verbal assault by a fellow passenger that the woman – of Thai descent – recorded on video. On Feb. 2, an Asian woman wearing a face mask on the New York City subway was physically assaulted by an assailant who reportedly called her “diseased.” In Indiana, two Hmong guests checking into a hotel reportedly were told that Asians were not welcome.“As elected representatives, we have a responsibility during a public health crisis to use our unique platform to calm our constituents’ fears, not stoke them,’’ said the CAPAC letter, signed by Chu and 22 other House members. “We therefore encourage all members of Congress to share only confirmed and verifiable information about COVID-19 and dispel misinformation.’’The letter went on to say: “Since the outbreak of COVID-19, we have seen a surge of discriminatory rhetoric and violent attacks against Asian Americans across the country. Often the attackers have been inspired by debunked conspiracy theories about the origin of the virus and how it spreads. Others repeat mistaken information, such as claiming that all people from China need to be quarantined for two weeks, when that guidance is actually intended specifically for those returning from a prolonged trip to China, regardless of their ethnic background.’’The letter stressed that the risk of becoming infected by COVID-19 has nothing to do with ethnicity.“It is from prolonged exposure to the virus, which is why the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has emphasized that while ‘the potential public health threat posed by the virus is high, both globally and in the United States, for the general American public, who are unlikely to be exposed to this virus at this time, the immediate health risk from COVID-19 is considered low,’ ” the letter said.Chu’s letter said that CAPAC is “disappointed and dismayed that some in Congress continue to push unfounded theories about the disease, including the conspiracy theory that COVID-19 was created in a lab in China. Scientists who have studied the make-up of the virus have determined that there are no indications this was designed in a lab.’’“Let us be clear,’’ the CAPAC letter said. “The dissemination of false information about COVID-19 is dangerous for public health and for American citizens who are increasingly becoming the victims of racist and xenophobic attacks.“Our constituents are understandably worried about the spread of this disease and are looking to us for guidance and reassurance. … That is why we encourage you to consult with the CDC and the World Health Organization, as well as your local public health agencies, to ensure that your advice to constituents is accurate and does not stoke unfounded fears.”On Wednesday, Los Angeles County health officials said there is “no reason to panic” locally about the coronavirus.“The current risk to L.A. County residents for getting COVID-19 is very low” said Dr. Prabhu Gounder, medical director of the county Department of Public Health’s respiratory diseases unit.“The best things people can do to protect themselves from any respiratory virus, including COVID-19, are the simple, everyday preventative measures such as washing hands, covering your cough and avoiding going out when sick, which is leading the county’s response to the outbreak.’’ Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more

Gavin Newsom announced MyShake on Oct. 17, 2019, and since its launch it has been downloaded over a million times, according to the mayor’s office.ShakeAlert makes use of the existing infrastructure of the California Integrated Seismic Network, including real-time waveform data streams from ~380 broadband and strong-motion stations throughout the state.“Through working cooperatively with the U.S. Geological Survey, the city of Los Angeles delivered the country’s first cell phone app for mass delivery of earthquake early-warning alerts,” U.S. Geological Survey Director Jim Reilly said. “What we learned from our important pilot partnership with the city of L.A. has benefited people throughout the West Coast as we expand ShakeAlert.”The system works the same way as ShakeAlertLA and detects earthquakes through ground-motion sensors. If an earthquake with a significant magnitude is detected, a ShakeAlert message is issued, warning the public before shaking begins.ShakeAlertLA issued 100,000 early warning alerts of all recordable earthquake activity since its launch in 2018, the mayor’s office said.“On behalf of the governor and state of California, we thank Mayor Garcetti for his leadership and work to advance seismic safety,” said Mark Ghilarducci, director of the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services.“We are better positioned today because of the mayor’s efforts and encourage all Angelenos to access the statewide earthquake early warning system, which can provide life-saving seconds to drop, cover and hold on before an earthquake,” Ghilarducci said.“We are pleased to be able to expand this life-saving technology to all Californians,” he said.ShakeAlertLA was meant to “serve as a bridge” to a statewide earthquake early warning system, the mayor’s office stated, and city officials worked with other governments to share experiences and assist them in developing earthquake early-warning programs.Now that a statewide system is in place, the ShakeAlertLA app will stop sending alerts at the start of 2021.The MyShake app is available for download through the Apple Store or Google Play.

This award marks a continuation of work BAE Systems has been performing on the same type of ships in Hawaii under a previous seven-year contract.“Our sustained, outstanding performance on the first MSMO award paved the way for this follow-on contract,” said Bill Clifford, president of Ship Repair at BAE Systems. “The Navy clearly recognizes our achievements and success in maintaining and modernizing these ships to ensure the readiness of the fleet. This award speaks volumes about the dedication and commitment of our highly skilled workforce, as well as our island suppliers and small businesses.”The new contract — coupled with similar MSMO contracts in Norfolk, Virginia; Mayport, Florida; and San Diego, California — reinforces the company’s trusted partnership with the Navy.
