The FSA is understood to have been particularly annoyed because the Goldman employee at the centre of the charges, Fabrice Tourre, who denies wrongdoing, had been transferred to a job in London from the US while the probe was ongoing, putting him under the auspices of the UK regulator.The FSA’s move, which comes just two months after Goldman paid $500m to settle the SEC charges, is a fresh blow to the bank, which has seen its share price plummet by almost a fifth since the suit was initially announced. While the size of the fine is relatively insignificant, it will reignite controversy over the bank’s actions during the financial crisis. The FSA announced its investigation in April following pressure from then-Prime Minister Gordon Brown, who expressed shock at what he called Goldman’s “moral bankruptcy” for planning multibillion-dollar bonuses for its staff.The fine from the FSA is the latest in a string of large levies imposed by the City regulator. The biggest was £33m levied against JP Morgan last year after the bank failed to separate client money from its own. Last month, the London branch of Societe Generale was fined £1.57m for failing to provide accurate transaction reports. Goldman and the FSA declined to comment last night.

Focus on FloridaLegislature advances ‘corporate welfare’ crackdownBy William Patrick of Watchdog.org Please enter your comment!center_img 1 COMMENT I don’t blame the guy for resigning one bit…..his statement upon resigning made total sense to me. Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter William Patrick is Watchdog.org’s Florida reporter. His work has been featured by Fox News, the Drudge Report, and Townhall.com, as well as other national news and opinion websites. He’s also been cited and reposted by numerous state news organizations, including Florida Trend, Sunshine State News and the Miami Herald, and is a member of Investigative Reporters and Editors and the Florida Press Association.  Reply It was the eve of Florida’s annual legislative session, and before a third House committee would vote overwhelmingly to eliminate the embattled job-recruitment organization, its top official abruptly resigned.Chris Hart, Enterprise Florida’s president, and CEO, said in a statement that he did not “share a common vision or understanding” with Gov. Rick Scott.Scott, a Republican, serves as Enterprise Florida’s chairman of the board of directors and is the state’s foremost proponent of using taxpayer resources to fund incentives for private businesses looking to relocate to Florida or expand within the state.Scott wants $85 million to fund Enterprise Florida incentives this year.Hart didn’t elaborate on his decision, but he did say that he was hired to restore the public-private partnership’s reputation and that “much of the effort would be directed at members of the Legislature.”That hasn’t gone well.Hart, himself a former legislator, served just two months on the job before quitting. In that time, two separate House committees voted to kill Enterprise Florida, along with 22 other taxpayer-funded economic incentive programs.Had Hart resigned on Monday afternoon instead of Monday morning, he would have presided over a third House committee that voted to eliminate his employer – this time with several Democrats in support.“I’m happy to get rid of incentives,” said Rep. David Richardson, a Miami Democrat, at the House Rules and Policy Committee. “I think they’re unfair. They disadvantage our businesses at home because existing small businesses in the state aren’t being paid anything to stay.”Since its inception in 1996, Enterprise Florida has awarded nearly $2 billion in incentive subsidies to private companies largely to lure out-of-state businesses to the Sunshine State.Rep. Paul Renner, R-Palm Coast, who’s sponsoring the bill to eliminate Enterprise Florida, said the taxpayer-funded incentives have gone to the “privileged few.”“Everyone pays taxes. We don’t have a choice, and we expect something back for all of us,” Renner said. “Yet these benefits go to the privileged few who know how to navigate the system.”According to the Office of Program Policy Analysis and Government Accountability, a nonpartisan legislative research office, about 90 percent of Enterprise Florida’s funding has historically come from taxpayers, despite a statutory requirement that half of the public-private partnership’s funding come from private sources.ENTERPRISE FLORIDA: One day before the 2017 Florida legislative session began, Enterprise Florida’s CEO resigned and a third House committee voted to kill the taxpayer-supported economic development organization.A recent OPPAGA report also stated that most of the incentive awards are going to companies with more than 1,000 employees.Rep. Chris Sprowls, R-Clearwater, blasted the organization’s practice of sending public money to large corporations that then compete with small businesses.Referencing the lobbyists, economic development officials and chambers of commerce reps who spoke in favor of continuing the taxpayer largesse during the meeting, Sprowls said he was voting against Enterprise Florida on behalf of Floridians who don’t have industry groups or paid board members representing them at the Capitol.Rep. Shawn Harrison, R-Tampa, said he would have asked Hart what percentage of businesses with fewer than 50 employees have been receiving assistance from the quasi-state agency. According to data from the Department of Economic Opportunity, the answer is 14.5 percent since 2012.The committee opted to split Renner’s HB 7005, into two bills — one dealing exclusively with the closure of Enterprise Florida, and another, HB 9, that would reduce funding for Visit Florida, the state’s taxpayer-funded tourism marketing corporation, by 67 percent.Both items are part of House Speaker Richard Corcoran’s “corporate welfare” crackdown.Committee members voted 15-3 to eliminate Enterprise Florida, and 15-2 to reduce Visit Florida’s fiscal 2018 funding from $76 million to $25 million.Richardson has emerged as a leading voice among persuadable Democrats amid the intra-Republican party fight.Richardson proposed an amendment to the Enterprise Florida elimination bill that would have saved the Florida Office of Film and Entertainment, an entity that in the past has doled out incentives to large production companies.The proposal failed but may be a sticking point ahead of a floor vote that could take place later this week.

“Sully” flies but never soars

Pictures shows Tom Hanks, right, and Aaron Eckhart in a scene from “Sully.” (Warner Bros. Pictures via AP)“Sully,” the latest directorial effort by Clint Eastwood (“American Sniper,” “Gran Turino”), starts well, but trails off as it introduces more characters and stretched-out plot elements.‘Sully’ is based on the story of Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger (Tom Hanks) and the emergency crash landing of US Airways Flight 1549 in New York’s Hudson River.Plot-wise, “Sully” is at its best when focusing on the titular character and is separated into three segments, each telling a specific part of Sully’s story. The first act does a great job of exploring the man behind the miracle and his experiences post-crash, while the second provides a tension-filled recollection of the crash itself.Compared to the first two-thirds, however, the final act drags as it aims to provide closure to a relatively smaller plot element. This, coupled with a rather abrupt ending, actually ends up leaving more questions than answers.In terms of cast, Tom Hanks and Aaron Eckhart do an outstanding job as Sully and co-pilot Jeff Skiles, respectively. Hanks carries the role with a sense of duty and respect that makes his portrayal come across as more relatable, and his banter with Eckhart provides levity in an otherwise serious movie.The rest of the cast are more lackluster, however, especially Laura Linney as Sully’s wife Lorraine. This disparity between acting skills sadly becomes more noticeable during Hanks’ scenes with Linney, whose character often says or does things that never really make sense.From a production standpoint, Eastwood’s growth as a director really shines. ‘Sully’ has great sound that draws you right into the cockpit and Eastwood’s desire for a more natural cinematic look compliments the material greatly. Everything seems more realistic, which makes the events of the film (and the true story behind it) that much more believable. Unfortunately, this realistic approach also draws attention to the required usage of CGI in certain parts of the film, making it stick out more than it normally would.Verdict:While “Sully” takes off strongly and features a great effort by Tom Hanks, the film is ultimately forced to land due to a lackluster final act and subpar cast performances.3.5/5 Frogs Chris Garciahttps://www.tcu360.com/author/chris-garcia/ Linkedin Sizzle Reel Finale (Ep. 24 – Teen Titans, Star Trek: Discovery and more) Chris Garcia is a senior film and journalism double major from Midland, Texas.
