first_img James Langton Facing Brexit uncertainty, U.K. and U.S. regulators are making arrangements to avoid disruption in the global derivatives markets.A collection of regulators — including the Bank of England, the U.K.’s Prudential Regulation Authority and its Financial Conduct Authority, and the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) — issued a joint statement today that sets out the steps they’re taking to ensure that trading and clearing in derivatives markets isn’t disrupted by the U.K.’s planned exit from the European Union (EU).

Additionally, U.K. regulators confirmed that U.S. trading venues, firms and central counterparties will be able to continue providing services in the U.K.“Derivatives can seem far removed from the everyday concerns of households and businesses, but they are essential for everyone to save and invest with confidence,” said Mark Carney, governor of the Bank of England, in a statement.“As host of the world’s largest and most sophisticated derivative markets, the U.S. and U.K. have special responsibilities to keep their markets resilient, efficient and open,” he said. “The measures we are announcing today will do that. Market participants can be confident that the clearing and trading of derivatives between the U.K. and U.S. will maintain the high standards of today when the U.K. leaves the EU.”Christopher Giancarlo, chairman of the CFTC, said London will remain a global centre for derivatives trading and clearing, and that the measures “provide a bridge over Brexit through a durable regulatory framework upon which the thriving derivatives market between the United Kingdom and the United States may continue and endure.” MX delays extended hours launchlast_img read more

first_imgSunshine state on track to be a clean energy leader The Queensland government’s investment of $2 billion in renewable energy and hydrogen positions the state to become a leader in clean energy production and potentially exports, the Australian Conservation Foundation (ACF) said today.Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk today announced a $2 billion Renewable Energy and Hydrogen Jobs Fund, which adds $1.5 billion to a $500,000 commitment made during the state election campaign.“This is a significant investment in the move away from coal and positions Queensland to become a big clean energy exporter,” said ACF Climate Change Campaigner Jason Lyddieth.“It makes sense for Queensland to take advantage of our bountiful sunshine and wind resources to power our own state and drive new export industries like green steel, green aluminium and hydrogen.“Queensland is already being hard hit by climate change with higher temperatures damaging the Great Barrier Reef and making once wet rainforests vulnerable to bushfires.“Climate change is a real and serious threat to our way of life, so – as well as boosting renewables capacity – Queensland needs to get out of coal and gas.“We need a plan to look after the workers, communities and families who will be most affected by the inevitable transition away from fossil fuels.“Queensland’s 2030 targets – to reduce emissions by 30% and have 50% of electricity from renewables – are among the weakest in the country and should be much stronger.”Earlier this week the Palaszczuk government sent a pumped hydro scheme at Borumba Dam to planning stage and secured land for a 3GW hydrogen electrolyser plant near Gladstone.A report released last year showed how Gladstone can build on its success as an industrial and export centre to become a renewable energy powered hub for industries like aluminium, steel, cement and hydrogen. /Public Release.

first_img The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail may be the most expensive new car ever The price for all this madness? An otherwise steep US$295,000, but look at it this way – that includes the donor Raptor’s purchase price. Certainly a lot more affordable than the Mercedes-AMG G63 6×6, relatively speaking. Outside, the VelociRaptor 6×6 is more or less identical to the standard F-150 Raptor, save for a few tweaks including additional LED lighting atop the roof and a modified bed to accommodate that second rear axle.Under the hood, the VelociRaptor is powered by Ford’s 3.5-litre EcoBoost V6 engine and 10-speed automatic transmission, good for 450 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque from the factory. If that’s not enough, you’ll be able to spec a VelociRaptor with Hennessey’s HPE600 package for an extra US$22,000, which bumps horsepower past the 600 mark.

Your Corner Wrench: Exhausted by your exhaust?Another common reason is an engine head or gasket failure, allowing coolant to enter the air/fuel intake system. Engine coolant is great stuff – until it drenches the inside of a convertor. So, if your tech tells you your ride needs a new catalytic converter and nothing else, you might need a second opinion.When it comes to options for replacements, there are choices other than the original automaker’s new parts. Many aftermarket companies list convertors for a wide range of popular vehicles, available from independent and chain auto-parts stores.  But be warned – they’re not always cheaper than dealership prices, so some shopping around is a must. Direct-fit units, complete with the correct pipes and flanges, are always your best bet – unless your tech is a skilled welder and can cut out the old one and refit a “one-size-fits-all” unit. RELATED advertisementcenter_img With little doubt, one of the most wallet-shocking repair estimate a driver can get for their ride is the replacement of a catalytic converter. On some mainstream vehicles, these emission control devices can easily exceed $1,500 just for the part, not to mention the installation fees. Fortunately, only a minority of car owners are faced with this situation, but when it happens, you need to ask some questions.First, catalytic converters really are designed for the life of a vehicle and when they fail, it’s almost always caused by external factors. About the only exception to this is when corrosion takes its toll on the metal shell or the pipes that make up the exterior construction of these hardy exhaust components. Converters usually fail from upstream issues; either an improper fuel mix or engine problem. When a convertor replacement is required, if any existing fault that led to this isn’t detected and rectified, you can almost count on needing another convertor during the life or the vehicle.In many cases, these external faults can be traced to faulty sensors, or fuel/air delivery problems pumping too much unburned fuel into the exhaust. There, the 1,000-plus degree operating temps of the converter will ignite it. This can overheat the filtration component inside the converter, to the point where it can plug the fine honeycomb-style air passages or make them extremely brittle, allowing them to crack when the car travels over a sharp bump.

On Friday, Sept. 21, at 7:30 p.m. the Fiske Planetarium at the University of Colorado at Boulder will explore the topic. “Searching for Distant Worlds,” a pre-recorded program, will examine recent discoveries of unknown planets around far-away stars and explain why it is so difficult to find these distant objects. Sommers-Bausch Observatory will be open for telescope viewing immediately following the show at Fiske. Tickets for the planetarium show are $4 for adults and $3 for seniors and children. They go on sale at 7 p.m. the night of the show. Entrance to the observatory is free. For more information call (303) 492-5001 or visit the planetarium’s Web site at http://www.Colorado.EDU/fiske.
