David Desharnais Jersey Philippine bank linked to Bangladesh heist gets large fine

The Philippine central bank on Friday imposed a 1 billion peso ($21 million) fine,
David Desharnais Jersey its largest ever, on a local commercial bank which became embroiled in the laundering of $81 million stolen by hackers from a U.S. Federal Reserve account belonging to Bangladesh’s central bank.

The Rizal Commercial Banking Corp. said it would pay the fine in two installments. The Philippine central bank said the action affirms its “strong
Men’s Reebok Montreal Canadiens 51 David Desharnais Authentic Away White Ice Hockey Jersey commitment to ensure the stability of the country’s financial system” through strong regulation of local banks.

The central bank and RCBC did not disclose details of the investigation that led to the fine.

Despite the fine, the central bank cited RCBC’s “efforts in instituting changes to
Custom Canadiens Jersey strengthen its anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing risk management system and governance culture.”Women’s Authentic Reebok Montreal Canadiens 31 Carey Price 2016 Winter Classic White Jersey.

The stolen funds are thought to have been funneled online to four private accounts at an RCBC branch, converted into pesos and wired out through a remittance company to two casinos, which are not covered by anti-money laundering regulations, according to Filipino anti-money laundering officials.

Only a fraction of the $81 million has been recovered so far.

Bangladesh’s ambassador to Manila, John Gomes, welcomed the fine as a
Brian Flynn Jersey “positive thing” and said it indicated the Philippine central bank was acting responsibly.

“Definitely we are happy but we will leave it to the Philippine courts, the judicial system to handle RCBC for now,” Gomes said in a news conference in Manila.Men’s Reebok Montreal Canadiens 32 Brian Flynn Authentic Home Red NHL Hockey Jersey Cheap.

He said Bangladesh is continuing its efforts to recover its money in the Philippines, and that its finance minister and other officials will travel to Manila next month to press that effort.

“Our quest remains the $81 million and we hold RCBC responsible,” Gomes said.

The cyberheist has highlighted a potential pitfall in global anti-money laundering efforts, which in the case of the Philippines have focused more in the past on
Carey Price Jersey blocking terrorist financing than on preventing misuse of the
Youth Reebok Montreal Canadiens 32 Brian Flynn Authentic Away White Ice Hockey Jersey financial system by banks and casinos.

Donald Trump’s Spokeswoman In 2012: Customized Indianapolis Colts Jersey Gay People Are ‘Not Normal’

WASHINGTON ― Who knows how Donald Trump would treat the LGBT community as president? He claims to be an ally, vowing to protect gay people from violence. He publicly celebrated Elton John’s 2005 same-sex marriage. Yet,
Customized Indianapolis Colts Jersey he slammed the Supreme Court’s decision on marriage equality and has said he’s fine with North Carolina’s controversial
Men’s Nike Custom Made Indianapolis Colts Elite Team Color Royal Blue NFL Jersey bathroom law.

What’s more clear is how Trump’s national campaign spokeswoman, Katrina Pierson, feels about gay people. In her words, they are “not normal” and “an abberation” [sic]. That’s according to a series of tweets she sent out in 2012.

Asked how she squares her past comments with Trump’s claims that he’s a friend
Personalized Indianapolis Colts Jersey to LGBT people, Pierson told The Huffington Post that it’s “a long reach” to look at her tweets from 2012.Men’s Nike Indianapolis Colts Personalized Elite Away White NFL Football Jersey.

“What does 2012 have to do with the 2016 presidential campaign?” she wrote in an email. “You’ll also find that as a grassroots volunteer for multiple campaigns, it’s quite common that Twitter is a platform to promote/defend the policies and
Personalized NFL Football Jersey values of the candidates at the time. Many times, it’s about engaging trolls which can lead to humorous and sarcastic banter. I’m sure you’ll also find that the positions/values of the candidates are not Youth Nike Custom Made Indianapolis Colts Elite Team Color Royal Blue NFL Jersey necessarily a sole reflection of the individual promoting or supporting said candidate.”

Pierson added, “Therefore, there is nothing to square. I support Mr. Trump and

Risk With No Exit: Personalized NFL Football Jersey The Bad Logic Of Silicon Valley’s (Few) Trump Supporters

More importantly, things could get much worse. Humanity has many examples of civilizations that have collapsed, usually due to political and environmental stupidity. Put bluntly: disruption is not always good, even disruption that is hated by city elites. City elites have been disrupted by populist strongmen in country after country over the past century, from Juan Peron in Argentina, to Fidel Castro in Cuba, to Hugo Chavez in Venezuela. In each case, the disruption led to
Personalized NFL Football Jersey substantially more statism and corruption, substantially reducing innovation and national economic growth. Like these and
Men’s Nike Custom Made Oakland Raiders Elite Black Team Color NFL Jersey Sale other historical strongmen, Trump wants substantial increases in government spending and federal power. He has repeatedly demonstrated authoritarian instincts on matters important to the technology industry, from government coercion over individual companies to government suppression of the free movement of people and ideas.

Is Donald Trump Just Kidding? 

The second common argument from pro-Trump businesspeople is that he won’t actually enact any of his policies. As one Trump supporter said in an interview with Business Insider:

I do not agree with a blanket ban (and personally I think he never meant it) … I have no doubt that Trump is a smart guy who won’t be deporting massively millions of people.

The most generous interpretation of this argument is that it’s a gamble. More likely, it’s simply wrong. Trump has been especially open with the public as a
Custom Raiders Jersey presidential candidate. His real-time reactions on issues demonstrate the same authoritarian and vindictive streak that his policies support. Experts in body language who have analyzed Trump’s speeches
Men’s Nike Oakland Raiders Personalized Elite Team Road Black White Two Tone NFL Jersey conclude that he means what he says.

More importantly, what if this is wrong? What is the exit strategy if Trump actually means what he says? Bankruptcy law won’t work for the United States economy or international security, let alone protectionism and domestic racism. The checks and balances of United States civil society and government might reduce Trump’s power, but a vote for Trump would go a long way toward weakening those checks and balances.

Trump As An Antidote To GroupThink 

Finally, some folks who support Trump in the technology community simply
Customized Oakland Raiders Jersey yearn to be contrarians. The idea, roughly, is that too many technology people hate Trump, so diversity requires a few folks to
Women’s Nike Personalized Oakland Raiders Elite Away White NFL Football Jersey Shirts have the courage to appreciate him, especially when almost half the electorate intends to vote for him.

I like contrarianism, but supporting Donald Trump is a really weird way for
Personalized Oakland Raiders Jersey Silicon Valley to start worrying about its diversity problem. The leadership of the technology industry nationally, and in Silicon Valley, is overwhelmingly male and overwhelmingly white or Asian. This industry invests disproportionately in founders wh Youth Nike Custom Made Oakland Raiders Elite Black Team Color NFL Jersey Sale.

Personized Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey Atheists urge Australians ‘don’t be Jedi’ for census

Atheists are urging Australians not to describe themselves as “Jedi” in the
Men’s Nike Custom Made Pittsburgh Steelers Elite Black Team Color NFL Jersey Cheap upcoming census, warning that doing so in homage to “Star Wars” makes the country appear more religious than it really is.

Ahead of the August 9 five-year census, the Atheist Foundation of Australia has
Personized Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey requested citizens mark themselves down as having “no religion” if they do not consider themselves tied to a faith.

“If old religious men in robes do not represent you… don’t mark yourself as ‘Jedi’,” says a campaign poster featuring Yoda and two other Jedi masters.

“‘Jedi’ and other joke religions are not placed in the ‘No Religion’ category but in
Men’s Nike Personalized Pittsburgh Steelers Elite Away White NFL Jersey for Sale ‘Not Defined’. This makes Australia seem more religious than it really is.”

Foundation president Kylie Sturgess said she was encouraging people “to be
Personalized NFL Football Jersey counted as what they are”.

“Our attitude is, well here’s an opportunity to have a say on the census; pop down what you are,” she told AFP.

“Maybe ‘no religion’ suits you, maybe you are someone who has drifted away
Women’s Nike Custom Made Pittsburgh Steelers Elite Black Team Color NFL Jersey Cheap from the church.

“But unfortunately ‘Jedi’ is just not an option on the census.”

The joke arose years ago when an email campaign wrongly claimed that if 8,000 people put themselves down as Jedi it would have to be officially recognised as a religion.

At the 2001 Australian census, more than 70,500 people listed their faith as “Jedi knight” or something similar, which would indicate the country had nearly as many believers in the “Force” as it had members of the Salvation Army.

“Whether or not people took the claim seriously, it was the start of a reporting phenomenon that gained speed internationally,” the Australian Bureau of
Custom Steelers Jersey Statistics said in 2013, adding that New Zealand, Canada,
Youth Nike Personalized Pittsburgh Steelers Elite Away White NFL Jersey for Sale,
England and Wales subsequently reported large Jedi contingents.

Jedi numbers dropped in the 2006 Australian census to 58,053 but bounced back five years later to 64,390.

Sturgess admits that she has put down Jedi as a “bit of a laugh” in the past.

“But the fact is that the ABS just doesn’t count it, they consider it ‘not defined’,” she said, adding “the joke is kinda getting a bit old”.

Australian statisticians could instead follow Britain’s example.

In the 2001 England and Wales census, 390,000 people, or 0.7 percent of the
Customized Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey population, entered their religion as “Jedi” but they were included among the atheists.

Or they could embrace non-traditional movements as New Zealand did in 2015 when it recognised pastafarians — who wear colanders on their heads, revere pirates and believe the world was created by a giant deity made of spaghetti.

Personalized Dallas Cowboys Jersey Box-office takings wilt in the heat of summer

Box-office takings wilt in the heat of summer.

But falling seasonal returns could be blessing in disguise for the industry.

This time last year, as many as three Chinese films were crossing, or nearing,
Personalized Dallas Cowboys Jersey the 1 billion yuan ($150 million) mark at the box office. It was like three horses galloping neck-and-neck to the finish line.
Men’s Nike Dallas Cowboys Customized Elite Away White NFL Football Jersey.

This season, not a single competitor is in sight.

According to the official figures of China Box Office, a State-run analysis company, the nation’s cinemas opened the all-important summer season with a faint glimmer of hope, which promptly faded against all expectations.

In the 27th week of this year-July 4 to 10-box office receipts rose by 12 percent before falling by 45 percent and 35 percent respectively in the next two weeks.
Personalized NFL Football Jersey But not every industry insider is singing the
Men’s Nike Custom Made Dallas Cowboys Elite Team Color Navy Blue NFL Football Jersey blues.

“This could be a blessing in disguise,” said La Peikang, chairman of China Film Group, the largest State-owned film business.

“China’s film market has scored big in recent years,” he said. “All kinds of capital has been pouring in, and some of it carries with it unsavory elements, which have led to some disturbing behavior. I call it a bubble, and the market is squeezing some air out of it.”

La quoted the saying, “Only when the tide goes out do you discover who’s been swimming naked,” adding that what is left will become a healthier and better
Custom Cowboys Jersey market environment.Women’s Nike Dallas Cowboys Customized Elite Away White NFL Football Jersey.

After years of hesitation, China Film Group is finally scheduled for a public listing on the Shanghai Stock Exchange. It plans to sell 467 million shares and raise 4 billion yuan.

Cold War II, the star-studded Hong Kong crime thriller, has been one of this season’s biggest hits.

But grossing 666 million yuan at the box office since opening on July 8, it has no chance of reaching the 1 billion yuan goal, let alone the 2.4 billion yuan milestone of Monster Hunt set by the same film company, Edko Film, last summer.

You could argue that the above two movies come from different genres, but Big Fish and Begonia had Monkey King: Hero Is Back in mind when it debuted on July 8. Both are animated features with visual flair.

Last year, the mischievous monkey almost reached the 1 billion yuan mark, but
Customized Dallas Cowboys Jersey this year Big Fish and Begonia has made 555 million yuan to date.

“Big Fish has not lived up to my expectations in terms of box-office performance,” said Wang Changtian, president of Enlight Pictures, which made the cartoon feature. “But its quality is higher than I expected. Had it been Youth Nike Personalized Dallas Cowboys Elite Throwback Navy Blue Thanksgiving Jersey released last year, it would have made the billion-yuan league.”

Wang attributed the shortfall to the ending of subsidies, adding, “What’s happening this summer is a return to normal and we should readjust our box-office expectations accordingly.”

Rock Dog, another animated feature with similar ambitions, fared even worse, earning just 39.5 million yuan.

China Film Group’s Tik Tok raked in only 77 million yuan, a figure that could have been three times higher had it been released last year, according to La, the company chairman.

The biggest irony is that this thriller received overwhelmingly positive reviews, but word-of-mouth failed to lift it out of the doldrums, a feat accomplished by last year’s Monkey King: Hero Is Back, which had a rags-to-riches rise among strong competition.

La offered this assessment of the market malaise.

Many parts of the country have been plagued by stormy or rainy weather this summer, he said, which had affected audience numbers. As a popular saying among film exhibitors goes, strong winds drive away half of the house and a rainstorm empties it all.

According to La and other industry insiders, a more deep-rooted cause is the disappearance of subsidies.

La said box-office growth had started to slow as early as March. While the film industry had been subsidized for a while, the release of Ip Man 3 pushed it to
Men’s Nike Custom Made Dallas Cowboys Elite Grey Shadow NFL Football Uniform breaking point. The third installment of the popular kung fu series opened on March 4 and in three days it had taken 470 million yuan, but widespread fraud was suspected.

Personalized New England Patriots Jersey Yet Another Sign Apple Is Making A Car

Apple is once again beefing up the team leading its secret car project.Men’s Nike Custom Made New England Patriots Elite Away White NFL Jersey Cheap.

The company has hired Bob Mansfield, a former top executive, to head up the development of a self-driving electric car, according to sources that spoke with
Personalized New England Patriots Jersey the Wall Street Journal.

Mansfield started with the company in 1999 and oversaw hardware engineering for products including the Macbook Air, the iMac and the iPad, the Journal
Men’s Nike Custom Made New England Patriots Elite Navy Blue Team Color Jersey Sale reports. In recent years, he’s served as an adviser to Apple.

While Apple has not openly expressed its intent to build a car, all signs have been
Personalized NFL Football Jersey pointing to yes. Last year, the company brought on board Doug Betts, an auto industry veteran who had worked at Toyota and
Women’s Nike Customized New England Patriots Elite Throwback Red Alternate Football Jersey Nissan, and Paul Furgale, an artificial intelligence and autonomous vehicle expert.

In May, Reuters reported that Apple was looking into how to charge electric cars and hiring engineers who were knowledgeable about the battery technology.

The move comes as companies including Google, Tesla and Uber are gearing up to compete for the self-driving, electric car market. Google’s prototype car is learningwhen to honk, and Uber is testing self-driving cars in Pittsburgh. Tesla released its autopilot feature in some vehicles last year, though a driver was recently killed in a crash involving autopilot.

A shift toward electric cars would be a major step in removing our reliance on
Youth Nike Custom Made New England Patriots Elite Navy Blue Team Color Jersey Sale oil. Bloomberg estimates that the growth of electric vehicles could eliminate a Custom Patriots Jersey daily demand of 2 million barrels of oil by 2023.But electric cars in the United States currently get their energy from a grid powered by burning fossil fuels ― which means they’ve still got a significant carbon footprint. That’s one big thing that will need to be resolved if we expect
Customized New England Patriots Jersey electric cars to help cut down on emissions and have a smaller impact on climate change.

Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

What we learned: Custom Seahawks Jersey Suspensions plaguing Cowboys

Another Cowboys suspension is looming. Their need for a pass rush is heightened. Yes, the beginning of training camp in Dallas will have a familiar feeling.

Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory, suspended four games to start this season, is about to be suspended a lot more. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport
Custom Seahawks Jersey reported that Gregory is entering a treatment program after Gregory learned he’s facing an additional suspension that would be at least 10 games, according to a source informed of the player’s plans.

This news clearly goes beyond football. Rapoport reports that Gregory has shut
Customized Seattle Seahawks Jersey out people close to him and the Cowboys are concerned that Gregory might never play for the team again. Owner Jerry Jones knew this was a risk when the team took Gregory in the second round of last year’s draft. He failed a drug test at the combine, which sent him hurtling down most draft boards.

The suspension especially stings the Cowboys because it’s a trend. Starting middle linebackerRolando McClain is suspended 10 games. Starting defensive end Demarcus Lawrence was also suspended four games for substance abuse. It’s not as if the Cowboys’ front seven has great depth. They have also seen offseason surgeries for defensive end Benson Mayowa, linebacker Sean Leeand rookie defensive tackle Maliek Collins.

This should have been an uplifting Cowboys offseason with the healthy returns of Tony Romo andDez Bryant. Instead, the defense has suffered constant issues without easy solutions. Jerry Jones has taken some big risks lately from Greg Hardy to Gregory to drafting second-round pick Jaylon Smith, who is expected to
Personalized Seattle Seahawks Jersey miss his rookie season as he recovers from a severe knee injury. Smith might turn out to be a great pick, but coach Jason Garrett needs defensive players now. He’s running out of them.

Training camp is officially underway. We’ll post “what we learned” each day to recap all the news.

Concerning injury news of the day

1. Jordy Nelson was quick to tell reporters that his surgically repaired right ACL is fine. But thePackers receiver’s start to training camp has been delayed because of an injury to his left knee.

It’s impossible to know which camp injuries will stick. Nelson and coach Mike McCarthy said they believed the team’s No. 1 receiver would be ready before Week 1, but they were vague beyond that. There is always a risk in any recovery that a new injury arises in compensation for the original problem.

This injury is a reminder that Nelson is 31 years old and ACL recoveries aren’t always simple. It’s another reason why the Packers need someone to step up in the battle between Davante Adams, Jeff Janis, and Ty Montgomery.

2. The Browns got a boost on Monday when they learned Josh Gordon could return to the team during training camp and would be suspended for only the first four games of the regular season. On Tuesday, reality set in. He’s expected to miss a couple of weeks of practice on the active/NFI list. It’s worth remembering Gordon has played only five games in the last two seasons, and he didn’t particularly help the Browns’ offense in that stretch. He will need all the practice time he can get in Hue Jackson’s offense.

Sensible signing of the day

It’s great to see Anquan Boldin back in the league. One of the smartest and toughest receivers of the century agreed to a one-year deal with the Detroit Lions, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport. While Matthew Stafford will
Personalized NFL Football Jersey miss Megatron, the Lions have a promising wideout trio ofGolden Tate, Marvin Jones, and Boldin. Guys like Andre Roberts, Jeremy Kerley, and T.J. Jones will be fighting for roster spots now.

Update: Even more sensible signing of the day

Is it possible that Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider are somehow underrated? What they have accomplished in Seattle tops anything we’ve seen in the NFL in the last 20 years aside from Bill Belichick’s reign in New England.

Tuesday’s late news that Carroll has signed a contract extension through 2019 was a no-brainer. In a league desperate for parity, Seattle has been one of the best 3-4 teams in the league four years running. The extraordinary amount of homegrown talent signed through the next three seasons means that this run isn’t ending anytime soon.

It’s interesting to note that Schneider’s recent extension goes through 2021.
Men’s Nike Custom Made Seattle Seahawks College Navy Blue Team Color NFL Football Jersey Sale.Carroll, now 64, is only signed through 2019. Carroll may already be thinking that he doesn’t want to coach forever, soSeahawks fans should enjoy him while they can.

Guys not showing up for camp

1. There will be no midnight deal to get Ryan Fitzpatrick into camp, likely because the Jets are concerned he’s going to turn back into a pumpkin.

Geno Nation is loving every minute of it. It’s not too late to jump on board.
Men’s Nike Seattle Seahawks NFL Elite Away White Custom Jersey Cheap.

2. Rapoport reported that unsigned franchise player Eric Berry won’t be at Chiefs camp, which is no surprise. Berry is expected to train on his own and show up to work in time to be ready for the regular season.

Coach Andy Reid also confirmed that outside linebacker Justin Houston won’t be back from his ACL injury during camp. He was given a six to 12 month timetable to return.

Saying Goodbye

The Falcons released return specialist Devin Hester, which also didn’t come as a big surprise. If he doesn’t land a job, Hester will make an interesting case someday as a Hall of Fame candidate. It is tough for specialists to get to Canton,
Women’s Nike Custom Made Seattle Seahawks College Navy Blue Team Color NFL Football Jersey Sale,but Hester has a strong resume to pull it off.

Saying hello

The 49ers have been wondering who will step up at right tackle this offseason. The answer: Their oldPro Bowl right tackle that retired early before the 2015 season. Anthony Davis’ agent Drew Rosenhaus told Mike Florio on PFT Live that Davis and the 49ers have patched up their patchy relationship, which is great
Youth Nike Seattle Seahawks NFL Elite Away White Custom Jersey Cheap news for an offense full of questions.
