Federal Reserve concludes the Asset Purchase Program


The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) has directed the Open Market Trading Desk (the Desk) at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York to conclude the current asset purchase program by the end of October on account of substantial improvement in the outlook for the labor market and sufficient underlying strength in the broader economy to support ongoing progress toward maximum employment in a context of price stability.

The FOMC has also directed the Desk to maintain the existing policy of reinvesting principal payments from the Federal Reserve’s holdings of agency debt and agency Mortgage-Backed-Securities (MBS) in agency MBS and of rolling over maturing Treasury securities at auction. This policy, by keeping the Committee’s holdings of longer-term securities at sizable levels, should help maintain accommodative financial conditions. Each month, the System Open Market Account (SOMA) portfolio receives sizable principal payments on its securities holdings, which, if not reinvested, would decrease the size of the SOMA portfolio.  Reinvestment, by keeping the Committee’s holdings of longer-term securities at sizable levels, should help maintain accommodative financial conditions.

Reinvestments in agency MBS will continue to be concentrated in newly-issued agency MBS in the To-Be-Announced (TBA) market. The Desk will adjust the number of individual agency MBS operations per month as needed for operational efficiency. The distribution of agency MBS purchases could change if market conditions warrant. The planned amount of reinvestments in agency MBS that are anticipated to take place over each monthly period will continue to be announced on or around the eighth business day of the month. For the remainder of the current reinvestment period, which ends on November 13, 2014, the Desk will continue to publish a tentative schedule of FedTrade agency MBS operations on or around the last business day of each week for a weekly period beginning the following business day. Consistent with current practices, the purchases of agency MBS will be conducted with the Federal Reserve’s primary dealers through a competitive bidding process and results will be published on the Federal Reserve Bank of New York ’s website. The Desk will continue to publish transaction prices for individual operations at the end of each monthly period.

NAPM 10th Convention Tmw in Pune in Backdrop of Government Changing Environmental, Land and Social Security Acts
From: napm india  Thu, 30 Oct ’14 8:25p
To: napmmedia  and others
  • 20 years journey of people’s movements unfolds in Pune!
  • All India People';s Movements Meet in Backdrop of Government Changing Environmental, Land and Social Security Acts
  • National Alliance of People’s movements – 10th Biennial Convention. 31st October to 2 November. Rashtra Seva Dal, Parvati, Pune.
Pune / New Delhi, October 30 Representatives of people’s movements striving for equality, social justice and sustainable development are meeting in Pune from 31stOctober to 2nd November to attend the 10th Biennial Convention of NAPM (National Alliance of People’s Movements). These activists have been instrumental in various social struggles and have played a key role in bringing about the important acts like Forest Rights Act for tribal people (2005), revised Land Acquisition and Rehabilitation Act (2013), Hawkers Act (2009), Employment Guarantee Act (2005).
Tribal people and farmers fighting for their land rights, urban poor fighting for their right to shelter, groups of people fighting against nuclear energy, communities fighting to save their water-forest-land, experts stressing the need of alternative development model are going to be a part of this three day programme.
Senior educationist Anil Sadgopal will inaugurate the convention on 31st October at 10.30 a.m. Noted social activists Medha Patkar will review the 20 years journey of NAPM, and Aruna Roy, Mazdoor Kisan Shakti Sangathan and former member National Advisory Council, will chair this session and reflect on the struggle for accountability and transparency in governance. In a special programme on this occasion, respected senior supporters of people’s movements will be felicitated.
A public meeting on ‘Development policy, social justice and India’s future’ will take place at 5.30 p.m. Yogendra Yadav, Pushpa Bhave, Vinoy Vishvam, Dayamani Barla, Khaleel Deshmukh, Shreenivas Khandewale and Vilas Bhongade will be part of this discussion.
On 31st October between 2pm to 5pm, group discussions will happen on a range of subjects like agriculture, water, energy, ownership of natural resources, urban planning, alternate development policy, health, education, right to food and others. On 1stNovember between 9am to 11am, summary of the discussions will be presented. At 6.30 p.m., public meeting on ‘Role of people’s movements in political transformation’ is planned. Ajit Jha, Nikhil Wagle, Lingraj Azad, Dr. Sunilam, Gautam Mody, Anil Chaudhary, will participate in the discussion. Medha Patkar will chair the session.
This convention is being viewed with great enthusiasm, as the laws that the new government intends to change, have been developed through these movements. UPA government had considered the voice of People’s Movements to some extent. Senior activist Aruna Roy was even introduced in the National Advisory Committee. BJP government, however, has started questioning the social organisations, people’s movements immediately after taking charge. In this context, how the people’s movements decide their way forward will be an interesting aspect of consideration.
In the context of the new developments from the Modi Government plannning to dilute and radically change pro poor laws like the LAAR Act, Labour Laws, Right to Information, MNREGA, Legislation related to Social Security making them anti-poor legislations: various social groups and alliances from across the country have converged today for a Samajvadi Samagam (Socialist Meet) at the SM Joshi Foundation. The purpose of this meeting is to bring together all the like minded socialist groups on to a common platform to fight together the rise of fascism and the present government';s Assault on the lives, livelihoods and natural resources of the common people and vulnerable sections of this country.
The coming together of people';s movements is significant at this juncture since, there is outrage at the moment at the way NDA government has been changing environmental laws and wants to change many. The movements are determined to halt any such changes and increase the resistance at the grassroots level against the ongoing assault on the livelihood and natural resources by corporations with help of the government.

Game changing rail technology was one of the topics that we have discussed with Pierre Mongin, the CEO of RATP at MetroRail last year. 
Higher volumes but higher subsidies
Time for clear policies and objectives for railways in the UK.  Not strategies - they are only the means of achieving objectives.   We need long term objectives for UK rail.

A Building Block to Success: Job Shadowing

By Macy Schneider, Iowa State University, Agricultural Communications Student
How do you know if your dream career is the right fit for you? There are hundreds of tests and quizzes online to assure you. You can spend hours and hours in the classroom and in college lecture halls filling your toolbox with information you hope to be able to put to use one day. There are even job descriptions available for job seekers which give a broad overview of the exact position you may wish to fulfill in the job market. However, none of the tests or quizzes, endless lectures, or job descriptions will give you as much reassurance as job shadowing a professional in your future career field.

The first step to any successful job shadowing experience is to determine what you wish to gain and what you want to learn more about. Once you have your overall objectives in mind, you can then look online or through your current networking contacts to determine who will help you meet those goals. It is always best to contact the person in the position you wish to job shadow first by email or phone. Always remember to be polite and professional, identify who you are, what you are wishing to achieve, and ask if such opportunities are available.
