Lawson expresses concerns about cryptocurrency-related investments

first_imgConnie LawsonIndianapolis, In. — Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson is again reminding Hoosiers to be cautious about investments involving Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) and cryptocurrency-related investment products. She is also reminding those who seek to sell these products to be aware of the laws pertaining to these investments.“While not every ICO or cryptocurrency-related investment is a fraud, it is important for individuals and firms selling these products to be mindful that they are not doing so in a vacuum; Indiana laws or regulations may apply, especially securities laws. Sponsors of these products should seek the advice of knowledgeable legal counsel to ensure they do not run afoul of the law. A strong culture of compliance should be in place before, not after, these products are marketed to investors.”If these products qualify as securities, they should be registered with the appropriate regulatory agencies or qualify for an exemption from registration. The registration process provides some protection for investors by subjecting the offering to regulatory review. But even registered offerings can be fraudulent. Investors therefore should perform their own thorough due diligence before investing in any ICO or cryptocurrency-related product.“Be cautious when dealing with promoters who claim their ICO offering is exempt from securities registration but do not ask about your income, net worth or level of investing sophistication,” Indiana Securities Commissioner Alex Glass said. “Do your homework and contact the Secretary of State’s office with any concerns before parting with your hard-earned money – afterwards may be too late.”In May, the North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA), of which the Secretary of State’s Office is a member, launched “Operation Cryptosweep.” This ongoing initiative is a coordinated series of investigations into ICOs and cryptocurrency-related investment products. To date, there have been 47 enforcement actions involving ICOs or cryptocurrency-related investment products throughout North America by state and provincial securities regulators.“My office is committing the necessary regulatory resources to protect investors in Indiana from financial harm involving fraudulent ICOs and cryptocurrency-related investment products and also is raising awareness among industry participants of their regulatory responsibilities,” said Secretary Lawson.last_img read more

Tyson Fury, Wilder 3 get date

first_imgRelatedPosts Italy introduces compulsory virus testing for travellers from France Nigeria records new COVID-19 infections, more deaths as figures rise to 57,242 Tyson Fury to Anthony Joshua: Don’t risk fighting Usyk Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder’s third instalment has been delayed as a result of the coronavirus that has almost brought the world as we know it to a halt.However, December 19 is the new date in mind to complete the trilogy with Top Rank executive Brad Jacobs stating that “locations all over the world” are under consideration. “We are focusing on December 19 and are hoping that, by then, we are back to a nearly normal situation,” Top Rank’s Jacobs told Sky Sports. “That may be a 50 per cent capacity.“We are looking all over the world, at this point, for the best location for this event. That will be narrowed down and we’ll see where it takes us.”One idea has been for the pair to fight in Australia on boxing day so the fight could be broadcast in the US and UK on Christmas Day.Promoter Dean Lonergan, who pitched the idea to Fury’s US promoters Top Rank, told Sky Sports: “If you want to come to one of the safest places in the world and give yourself a guaranteed crowd, well perhaps Australia is the place to be.”A 45,000 seater has been mooted in Australia, but Top Rank insist they are taking everything into account when figuring out the logistics of this WBC heavyweight title fight. “We are looking towards what the next step is,” Jacobs said. “A small hall with 1,000 people? A big arena that holds 15,000 but with 3,000 inside? How close can people sit? It is a huge undertaking to reach this next step. We are investigating it actively.”Fury and Wilder first met in December 2018 where a late knockdown rescued a draw for Wilder after being comprehensively outboxed for the vast majority of the fight up until that point.Tags: CoronavirusDeontay WilderTyson Furylast_img read more

Davis facing late fitness test

first_imgNorthern Ireland are still sweating over the fitness of captain Steven Davis ahead of Friday’s Euro 2016 qualifier in Romania. Southampton midfielder Davis has been in exemplary form in the three-match winning streak that has pushed Northern Ireland to the top of Group F but is struggling with a hamstring injury. Davis had to be substituted during Saints’ 2-0 win over Leicester last weekend but, after scans by club doctors, he joined up with the national squad in London on Tuesday night. Press Associationcenter_img Despite that, concerns still exist over his fitness and he will face a final fitness test from the Northern Ireland medical staff before deciding whether to board Wednesday evening’s flight to Bucharest. An IFA statement said: ” Steven Davis has joined up with the Northern Ireland squad and will be assessed by the medical staff tomorrow (Wednesday).” Injury had already forced out Derby forward Jamie Ward and Liverpool full-back Ryan McLaughlin, but former captain Aaron Hughes appears to have won his battle with an ankle problem. Ward and McLaughlin were replaced in the group by uncapped Rochdale midfielder Matthew Lund and Oldham’s Carl Winchester, whose solitary appearance to date came in a weakened Carling Nations Cup squad in 2011. Brentford winger Stuart Dallas had been on the standby list and was the preferred replacement for Ward but he has also been struggling for fitness and could not accept the call. Latics boss Lee Johnson, reacting to Winchester’s summons, told the club’s official website: ”I’m delighted f or two reasons as he can still play on the Saturday for us because if he is not involved with Northern Ireland, he can come back and play. ”I’m delighted for him and the club because to have a player come through the youth system is excellent. Supporters can see the path he has come from to become a full international and it is fantastic for Carl and the club.” last_img read more

USG proposes committee to redesign logo

first_imgCho was also unanimously voted as USG’s new chief diversity officer for the 2019-20 term. In the proposal, Fritz presented a potential timeline for the redesign process if the Senate were to approve of the committee’s creation. According to Fritz, the USG graphics team has already created multiple redesign proposals. Fritz intends for the proposed committee to finalize marketing orders for items that will include the new logo. “As a diverse and inclusive organization, we want to stray as far away from that as possible,” said Fritz, a sophomore majoring in business administration. “It’s totally counterintuitive to our mission now as representatives of this 20,000 [person] undergraduate student body who’s made up of all these different communities.” According to USG Senior Director of Communications Truman Fritz, former co-Chief Diversity Officer Shany Ebadi noted that the current USG logo is similar to the logo of The Third Path, a German far-right group founded in 2013. The current USG logo was introduced between 2005 and 2006, according to Fritz. Fritz said the logo redesign proposal comes with USG’s broader initiative to rebrand its image and expand communication to get more students involved with USG and its various initiatives. Later, Stone announced Nillani Anandakugan, who previously served as the co-director of elections & recruitment, as his candidate for the chief of staff position. According to Stone, Dylan Field, the assistant director of elections and recruitment in 2018-19, was the original choice for the chief of staff position but turned it down due to other time commitments. “I’m just really honored that Trenton, Mahin [and] the rest of the [executives] thought of me as someone who could take on this position,” said Anandakugan, a junior majoring in global health and environmental science and health. “Dylan really had this great vision of what he imagined for advocacy, and I hope I can do just as well.”center_img During the meeting, the second of the new USG administration, Fritz proposed the creation of the committee, which would include President Trenton Stone, Vice President Mahin Tahsin, Chief Diversity Officer Jeffrey Cho, Fritz and several members of the USG marketing and graphics teams. “We’re going to be thinking about themes, thinking about ideas, thinking about what we want the logo to represent within the organization and how it comes into this whole expansion of our visual identity,” Fritz said. Senators will vote on Anandakugan’s hiring in addition to the logo redesign committee proposal next Tuesday. The Undergraduate Student Government proposed the creation of an ad hoc committee to redesign the organization’s current logo in Tuesday’s Senate meeting, due to its similarity to a neo-Nazi party logo. Former co-Chief Diversity Officer Shany Ebadi pointed out the similarities between USG’s logo and that of German neo-Nazi party The Third Path. The latter was created about eight years after USG’s logo was designed. (Daniel Hahm/Daily Trojan)last_img read more

USC ends skid as bats come alive in win

first_imgFollowing a six-game stretch during which USC scored just 14 runs, the Trojan bats have suddenly caught fire.They’ve put 28 runs on the board in their last four games, including a 10-run outburst Tuesday against Loyola Marymount.Hot at the plate · Senior second baseman Joe De Pinto had two hits, two RBIs and scored three runs in USC’s 10-3 rout of LMU at Dedeaux Field yesterday. The Trojans have been effective at the plate as of late, scoring 28 runs in their last four games. – Carlo Acenas | Daily Trojan USC (11-18) jumped out in front early against USC interim coach Frank Cruz’s former squad. Junior center fielder Garret Houts reached on an error to lead off the game for the Trojans and advanced to second on a single. A few batters later, senior second baseman Joe De Pinto was hit by a pitch to load the bases with nobody out, paving the way for junior first baseman Ricky Oropesa’s sacrifice fly to left to put USC up 1-0.After another single loaded the bases again, sophomore third baseman Adam Landecker hit what appeared to be an inning-ending double-play ball to shortstop.The Lions (16-11) got the first out at second, but Jonathan Johnson threw the ball away trying to turn the double play, allowing junior catcher Kevin Roundtree and De Pinto to score, giving the Trojans a 3-0 lead after one inning.The Lions got a pair back in the top of the second on a two-run single by first baseman Bret Dahlson, but that was all junior starter Brandon Garcia would allow for the next three innings.Garcia held the Lions scoreless until the sixth, when he walked the leadoff hitter and was pulled after five-plus innings of solid work. That runner would score to give Garcia a final statline of three runs on five hits over five innings, striking out five and walking three.“Garica gave us a nice outing,” Cruz said. “Probably one of his better starts of the season.”Garcia was pleased with his start as well.“As a Tuesday guy, you want to go five innings, maybe more,” Garcia said. “I got that done and the bullpen did the rest.”USC added a run in the third when Oropesa smacked a double that one-hopped the wall in right-center, scoring De Pinto from first. The Trojans put up another in the fourth after De Pinto singled Houts home following a two-out triple.The Trojans put the game out of reach in the sixth, when Roundtree whacked a two-out double. De Pinto followed that up with his second two-out RBI single of the day.“It’s funny, because earlier in the season I felt I was hitting the ball hard and they were all being caught,” De Pinto said. “Now I don’t think I’m hitting them as well, but they’re finding the holes.”Following an intentional walk of Oropesa, junior left fielder Matt Foat ripped a single to left-center that hopped past the Lions’ center fielder and rolled all the way to the wall, allowing De Pinto and Oropesa to trot home and give the Trojans an 8-3 lead.“Two-out scoring is always important,” Cruz said. “That was really, really good to see.”The Trojans added runs in both the seventh and eighth innings, the last run coming off a sacrifice fly by backup junior shortstop Ryan Bast — his first RBI of the season.USC pitcher Austin Wood, who was knocked out of his Saturday start after only 19 pitches, came in for the ninth. The junior zipped it in to all four hitters he faced at a consistent 95 miles per hour and shut the door on the Trojans’ 10-3 win.“I’ve been struggling a bit,” Wood said. “I haven’t been contributing as much as I wanted to. I just wanted to go out there, throw strikes and get my confidence back up.”For the Trojans as a whole, confidence is growing.“It’s been rare that we get good offense, good defense and good pitching in the same game,” De Pinto said. “But we got that today and hopefully we can use that as a springboard for this weekend.”USC looks to continue its strong all-around play this weekend as it hosts No. 11 Stanford in a three-game series at Dedeaux Field.last_img read more
