PETALING JAYA: Practice Note 17 (PN17) company R&A Telecommunication Group Bhd (R&A) has been given a further extension of up to April 30, 2017 to submit its regularisation plan. In a filing with Bursa Malaysia yesterday, the group said it is required to make a requisite announcement on or before March 15, 2017. R&A had previously terminated negotiations for the proposed buy of the entire equity interest in construction firm Synergy Goldtree Sdn Bhd, which was supposed to form part of its proposed regularisation plan. Following the termination, the group said it has entered into an agreement for the proposed acquisition of the entire stake Forward Resources and Construction Sdn Bhd (FRCSB) in December last year. R&A added it has also entered into a framework restructuring agreement, in which the vendors had deposited an aggregate sum of RM2.5 million with their solicitors to be utilised for the settlement of the scheme creditors of the company and its wholly-owned subsidiary under the debt restructuring scheme.

The Trump administration plans to release its fiscal 2018 budget outline by the second week of March, offering the first detailed look at priorities for the president’s first year. White House spokesman Sean Spicer confirmed to reporters Wednesday that the administration plans to release its budget by March 13-ish.” Another administration source told POLITICO the White House has set a deadline of March 14. Congressional budget writers also were told to expect President Donald Trump’s outline in that timeframe, according to a committee aide. The plan, often called the “skinny budget,” is the first draft of Trump’s full budget proposal, which is expected later this spring. In broad strokes, it will likely lay out where Trump plans to boost spending, and specify which programs he will put on the chopping block. While the budget document does not become law, it will serve as a key framework for GOP leaders as they craft their own budget resolution this spring.

Joiner taxpayers that they can deliver great services and still live within their means. But the story does not end there. Last month we introduced the local government Finance Bill to this house. It will devolve 100% of business rates to local government and will also enshrine in law our commitment to providing funding certainty, establishing a legal framework for multi-year settlements.

New UK Government bill to require a single policy for passengers and the autonomous vehicle they are in New insurance legislation that will require a passenger and their autonomous car to be covered under the same policy is being introduced in Britain today. The measures come as part of the Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill and aim to simplify the insurance process for passengers and insurers before driverless cars become popular. Using a single policy places more pressure on manufacturers and software developers for autonomous vehicles because they will be liable to pay compensation in the event of an accident. The UK Government has prioritised consumers in the process in order to speed up access to compensation after an incident. Caterham boss: autonomous cars are an opportunity Transport secretary Chris Grayling said: “We must ensure the public is protected in the event of an incident and today we are introducing the framework to allow insurance for these new technologies.

That legislative framework, paid the Bill and the secondary legislation that will flow from it, the necessary foundations underpinning our new system -- both the Bill and the secondary legislation. I'm sure this Parliament will want to ensure we get it right and will take the time it feels is necessary for scrutiny, evidence taking and reporting. With me in the studio this week is the former Labour MP and Shadow Scottish Secretary Margaret Curran.

In Indonesia, Amnesty said despite a commitment to resolve past cases of human rights violations, there continued to be "reports of rights violations by security forces, including unlawful killings and the use of excessive or unnecessary force." ICJ’s Zafiri says while he remains "optimistic" of long term improvements, the region’s immediate outlook remained challenging. "What worries me now is that we’re actually seeing governments just even challenging the relevance of human rights to improving their societies," he said. "And that’s certainly something that suggests a weakening of this global legal framework that we worked so hard to create and establish."

The government is very clear that the green belt must be protected. Very clear that boundary should only be altered when local authorities have fully examined all other reasonable options and if they go down that route they should compensate by improving the quality or accessibility of the remaining green belt land so that can be enjoyed. I know the particular issue he has raised and I believe the framework led to quite a number of responses.

Medical doctors who used an Apple Watch app to discover the most common triggers of epileptic seizures will present their findings at the American Academy of Neurology's 69th Annual Meeting today in Boston, Massachusetts. The 10-month study involved 598 people who tracked their seizures with an app called EpiWatch , which was built by Johns Hopkins using Apple's ResearchKit software framework. The app features a custom Apple Watch complication that provides patients with one-touch access to record accelerometer and heart rate sensor data. When participants felt a seizure aura coming on, they were asked to launch the app to let it record their heart rate and movements for 10 minutes. After the seizure had come to an end, participants filled out a brief survey about seizure type, aura, loss of awareness, and possible trigger that led to the seizure.

He was released in 2004 after lobbying by the British government and reportedly received £1 million in compensation. Terrorism is a crime and not an act of war, and of course in the UK we have habeas corpus so you cannot be locked up without trial. So, distasteful as it may be, the fact that he was given compensation is probably correct because he was incarcerated beyond a period which would be deemed legal in a US framework.

What they're saying is don't just look for a child coming in covered in bruises suspecting there you go, that's a child of abuse, look beyond that. If you've got a child that is constantly playing up in school, perhaps you might have said before, that's just a pain, actually, there's something wrong with that child, is it a child of abuse? So they're asking people, they are putting in a new framework, and, in some ways, I can understand a lot of people will be saying this is going too far.
