Timeline Former Goldman Sachs Director Rajat Guptas Journey to Jail

first_imgRajat Gupta, the former Goldman Sachs Director who was convicted for insider trading, started his two-year jail term on Tuesday. The 65-year-old also has to pay a huge penalty of $13.9 million.Here is a brief timeline of Gupta’s life and career:1971 : Born in Kolkata a year after the Indian Independence, Gupta, armed with a graduate degree from the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, goes abroad to study MBA at Harvard Business School, Massachusetts, US.1973 : Gupta joins McKinsey, a global management consulting firm in New York, and becomes its managing director the next year and remains its honcho till 2003.2006 : Gupta joins equity research firm Goldman Sachs’ board as director and soon becomes the director of Procter & Gamble’s (P&G) board as well.29 July 2008 : Gupta informs Raj Rajaratnam, founder of Galleon Group, about Wall Street Bank’s move to buy AIG or Wachovia on the sidelines of the 2008 cash crunch.23 September 2008: Rajaratnam makes a profit of $ 840,000 from the information given by Gupta after a Goldman Sachs’ board meeting about Berkshire Hathaway’s preferred stock investment of $5 billion in it.23 October 2008 : Gupta, aware of Goldman’s financial result showing loss for the fourth quarter of 2008 in a company conference call, contacts Rajaratnam and passes on the information. Rajaratnam benefits avoiding losses to the tune of $3.6 million.29 January 2009 : Gupta participates in a telephonic audit meeting with P&G over quarterly earnings. SEC alleges that Gupta provided the information to Rajaratnam, who made a profit of $ 570,000.16 October 2009 : Rajaratnam’s arrest for insider trading brings Gupta’s involvement to light.13 April 2010 : SEC probe begins and Gupta resigns from Goldman Sachs.1 March 2011 : SEC files insider trading charges against Gupta, forcing him to quit P&G board as well.4 August 2011 : SEC drops administrative proceedings against Gupta, following his lawsuit against them, alleging different treatment in the entire Galleon firm probe.13 October 2011 : Court sentences Gupta to 11 years in prison and he surrenders to FBI in October.15 June 2012 : Jury convicts Gupta on four of the six counts – three counts of security fraud and one of conspiracy to commit securities fraud – and sentences him to two-year prison term in October.25 March 2014: Federal Court rejects Gupta’s renewed plea for new trial in the case.11 June 2014 : US Court rejects his appeal for bail, pending his sentence term.17 June 2014 : Gupta begins his two-year jail term in Massachusetts.last_img read more

Accidental firing injures cop at Ganabhaban

first_imgA constable of Special Security and Protection Battalion (SPBn), stationed at the Ganabhaban (prime minister’s official residence), sustained bullet injuries mistakenly early Monday.The injured policeman has been identified as Rahimuddin.SPBn-2 officials said that the victim was shot accidentally during the regular checking of firearms around 3:00am.He was rushed to the Dhaka Medical College Hospital and later transferred to the National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases (NICVD) at Sher-e-Bangla Nagar, said DMCH police outpost sub-inspector Bachchu Mia.Selim Khan, the police superintendent of SPBn-2, said that Rahimuddin may require surgery.An investigation team has been formed to investigate the matter.last_img

Lake researchers find fishermen a good resource for limnology

first_imgImage: Wikipedia. © 2012 Phys.Org Skill triumphs over fish scarcity and draws experienced anglers back to overfished lakes More information: Contributions of local knowledge to the physical limnology of Lake Como, Italy, PNAS, Published online before print April 9, 2012, doi:10.1073/pnas.1113740109AbstractThis article shows how local knowledge may be valuably integrated into a scientific approach in the study of large and complex hydrological systems where data collection at high resolution is a challenge. This claim is supported through a study of the hydrodynamics of a large lake where qualitative data collected from professional fishers was combined with theory to develop a hypothesis that was then verified by numerical modeling. First the fishermen’s narratives were found to describe with accuracy internal wave motions that were evident in water column temperature records, which revealed their practical knowledge of the lake’s hydrodynamics. Second, local knowledge accounts emphasized the recurrent formation of mesoscale gyres and return flows in certain zones of the lake in stratified conditions, which did not appear in the physical data because of limitations of sampling resolution. We hypothesized that these features developed predominantly because of the interaction of wind-driven internal motions with the lake’s bathymetry, and the Earth’s rotation in the widest areas of the basin. Numerical simulation results corroborated the fishers’ descriptions of the flow paths and supported the hypothesis about their formation. We conclude that the collaboration between scientific and local knowledge groups, although an unusual approach for a physical discipline of the geosciences, is worth exploring in the pursuit of a more comprehensive understanding of complex geophysical systems such as large lakes. Journal information: Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (Phys.org) — By studying lakes and streams, limnologists are able to learn how water systems work which is vital in a world where human population increases cause such resources to become ever more valuable. Thus, any new source of reliable information that can add to the overall understanding of how such a system works can become invaluable over time. It is for this reason that a trio of researchers from the Center for Water Research and Anthropology and Sociology at the University of Western Australia, found themselves enlisting the help of local fishermen when studying Lake Como in the Italian Alps. In so doing, they found, as they describe in their paper published in the Proceedings of National Academy of Sciences, that knowledge fishermen gain both from their ancestors and through experience can be used to expand on scientific studies to provide a much more thorough analysis of a lake’s flow patterns.center_img Explore further After initial analysis, the research team found that approximately thirty fishermen made a living by catching fish using large floating nets in the lake. Of those, they interviewed twenty two. In so doing they discovered that the fishermen had a much deeper understanding of both the underwater topology of the lake and the currents that occur as a result of that topology as well as seasonal temperature variations, than was expected. They learned for example, that the fishermen could describe the bottom of the lake without ever having seen a map of it. They were also able to describe in great detail different kinds of currents at different depths and could pinpoint where eddies occurred and where sometimes the current flowed backwards.The research team then built a model that simulated lake conditions using traditional methods such as monitoring wind speed and temperature variations of the water at various points along with a topological map. The model estimated lake currents at different locations and depths, and as it turned out, very closely matched the mental model the fishermen had built in their heads.In comparing the amount of data that could be collected via traditional methods versus that garnered from speaking with the fishermen, the team discovered that because of their histories and backgrounds, the fishermen were able to provide a much richer and more complex picture of the lake system than they were able to obtain using simple measurements and thus have concluded that future research efforts should include interviews with fishermen whenever possible. Doing so, they say, will likely result in better models.
