It is the first time a Wall Street banker has been implicated in the alleged insider dealing ring.Ahmed allegedly told a third party about the deal, who told Rajaratnam, the filing said. While a redacted letter released to the public blanked out the banker’s name, Morgan Stanley has placed Ahmed on leave and he is being represented by Baker & McKenzie lawyer Douglas Tween.Sources told City A.M. yesterday that Morgan Stanley had conducted an internal investigation into the allegations but had found no evidence against Ahmed. “Nothing has come out of that,” one said. Ahmed, who joined Morgan Stanley in 2000, has not been charged with any wrongdoing.Morgan Stanley spokesman Pen Pendleton said Morgan Stanley was “fully co-operating with the government’s investigation.” “If proven to be true, the alleged conduct would be a violation of Morgan Stanley’s values and policies,” he said.Sri Lankan-born Rajaratnam, founder of the Galleon Group, is to be tried next month on charges of conspiring to commit securities fraud in the biggest case of insider trading involving hedge funds in US history.FAST FACTS | RAJ RAJARATNAMFounded the Galleon Group in 1997.Worth $1.3bn in 2009 according to Forbes.Arrested in October 2009 by US Attorney for allegedly buying inside information on stocks.Allegedly made $36m (£22.5m) from fraud.

Photo: Sharon Sheridan / Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Salt Lake City] Heard of Christmas in July? At General Convention, it was Lent in Pentecost in the Exhibit Hall.Lent Madness is the brainchild of the Rev. Tim Schenck, a sports-loving Massachusetts priest who reasoned that basketball fans shouldn’t have all the fun and that the penitential season of Lent needed livening up. Inspired by the annual March Madness college basketball tournament, in 2010 he created a bracket of saints who square off against each other in rounds of competition for the “Golden Halo” award. Each day of the competition during Lent, participants can read about two saints from The Episcopal Church calendar of commemorations and vote for their favorite to advance to the next round.Lent Madness extended its growing reach in 2012 when it partnered with Forward Movement under the auspices of its executive director – and Schenck’s good friend or “archnemesis,” depending on what mood they’re in when you ask them – the Rev. Scott Gunn. Together, they form the Executive Committee for the Lent Madness phenomenon, which has garnered attention across the country and beyond.For the second General Convention in a row, the Forward Movement booth has hosted a Lent Madness Day, allowing enthusiasts to vote onsite or at the website (www.lentmadness.org) for a saint to be the first to join the next Lent Madness bracket.June 25’s competitors, Chad of Litchfield and Clare of Assisi, were chosen with “as much thought as goes into any one of our matchups,” Schenck said. “Of course the reason that it’s Chad vs. Clare is because there’s so much voting going on at General Convention that we want to acknowledge the possibility of hanging chads. Also, as the bishops and deputies are here, we’re praying for Clare-ity as they discern the issues of the day.”The Rev. Scott Gunn, left, and the Rev. Tim Schenck – the dynamic duo behind Lent Madness – strike a saintly pose with the winner of the 2015 Golden Halo, St. Francis of Assisi, in the Exhibit Hall at General Convention in Salt Lake City. Photo: Sharon Sheridan / Episcopal News ServiceThe display included a life-size cardboard likeness of the 2015 Golden Halo winner, St. Francis of Assisi, and some of his animal pals. These provided ample opportunity for saintly selfies – often posed with Lent Madness fans wearing their own Frisbee-esque halos.While Clare was influenced by Francis, they were not related, so Schenck said he doubted association with last Lent’s winner would give her an edge in voting.“I don’t think there’s a whole lot of nepotism at work here,” he said, “but the Assisi lobby is pretty powerful.”Not everyone caught the day’s bracket fever. Schenck tried to explain the competition to Karen Ford of Tempe, Arizona, but she declined to vote.“I’m not a sports person,” she said. “I don’t understand sports terminology.”Edwin Johnson of the Diocese of Massachusetts admitted he’d always been a Madness observer. “I comment on other people’s brackets.”But for Lent Madness Day, he took the plunge and cast his first ballot. “This is easy,” he said. “Clare of Assisi all the way. Otherwise my wife would kill me.”Heather and Matt Stone of Longmont, Colorado, first caught the madness at their home parish of St. Stephen’s, where the annual bracket is posted in the narthex and voting recommendations make their way into the Sunday announcements.“We were a little upset when Charles Wesley won [the Golden Halo] two years back, but it all was rectified with St. Francis,” Matt Stone said. “He was our favorite from the beginning.”As relatively new Episcopalians, they’ve enjoyed the opportunity to learn more about Episcopal saints as well as experience the Lent Madness humor, he added. “It really just makes Lent a special time.”The Rev. Jean Collins said her small Montana congregation similarly enjoyed the annual competition. “You learn about saints you never knew about.”Schenck’s creation is an ingenious combination of Lenten discipline, competition, fun and Christian formation – “not necessarily in that order,” Gunn said. Teaming up with him for Lent Madness “was an opportunity for Forward Movement to have more fun.”“Forward Day by Day readers are sometimes very serious,” he said. The Lent Madness connection has “changed our perception in the church in a good way.”“I like it because sometimes Episcopalians take ourselves too seriously, and we don’t take Jesus seriously enough,” Gunn said. “This flips it around. This helps us take Jesus seriously and lighten up.”— Sharon Sheridan is an ENS correspondent.

Stabenow Says House Ag Farm Bill Amendment Highlights Need for Egg…

first_img Stabenow Says House Ag Farm Bill Amendment Highlights Need for Egg Bill Facebook Twitter Source: NAFB News Serivce SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Stabenow Says House Ag Farm Bill Amendment Highlights Need for Egg Billcenter_img According to Senate Ag Committee Chair Debbie Stabenow – the House Ag Committee’s approval of an amendment that would make it illegal for states to ban the sale of foods produced in other states because that state considers the production standards unacceptable shows the need for a national standard on the cages of egg-laying hens. Stabenow has backed an amendment sponsored by California Senator Dianne Feinstein and supported by United Egg Producers and the Humane Society of the United States to develop a national standard for hen housing. She actually considered putting the amendment in the farm bill – but didn’t have enough support to include it. Stabenow says Senator Feinstein will have to evaluate whether to try to attach her measure to the farm bill on the Senate floor.Groups like the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association and National Pork Producers Council – and some egg producers – oppose the measure because they fear it could set a dangerous precedent for the federal government to dictate their production methods.As for that House amendment – United Egg Producers doesn’t support it. UEP endorses the Egg Products Inspection Act Amendment – a House measure introduced by Oregon’s Kirk Schrader and California’s Jeff Denham that is similar to the Feinstein bill. UEP President Chad Gregory said the Schrader-Denham bill is a preferable solution to the interstate commerce calamity in eggs. He said the amendment added to the House Ag Committee’s farm bill doesn’t set a level playing field for farmers and could affect interstate commerce in a wide variety of agricultural products – noting as many as 150 different state laws could be preempted or affected by the amendment. Historically – when Congress preempts state laws – he said it replaces them with a uniform national standard like the egg bill that egg farmers nationwide support.
