Freddie Mac to Announce Q4, Full Year 2014 Financial Results Thursday

first_img Freddie Mac will report its fourth quarter and full year 2014 financial results in a conference call with the media on Thursday, February 19, beginning at 9 a.m. Eastern time, according to an announcement from the GSE.The conference call will be concurrently webcast and can be accessed by following this link. All materials related to the call, including a replay of the webcast, will be available at Mac has enjoyed 12 consecutive quarters with positive earnings, according to the GSE’s Q3 financial report released in November. In Q3, Freddie Mac’s net income was $2.1 billion – up from $1.4 billion in the previous quarter.The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) took both Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae under conservatorship in September 2008; at the time, the Enterprises needed a combined $188 billion in government bailout funds to keep afloat in the midst of the financial crisis. In August 2012, the terms of the bailout agreement were amended and nearly all of the GSEs’ profits have been swept into the U.S. Department of Treasury since.At the time the Q3 financial results were released, Freddie Mac said it expected to pay about $2.8 billion in dividends to Treasury in December. That would bring the combined amount the two GSEs have paid to Treasury up to $225.5 billion, nearly $40 billion more than they received in bailout funds in September 2008. The amended bailout agreement stipulates that the GSE profits continue to be swept into Treasury, a practice that has drawn the ire of GSEs shareholders who believe they are being shortchanged. Two of the GSEs’ largest shareholders, Fairholme Funds and Pershing Square Capital Management, have litigation pending against the government over the use of GSE profits.For the first nine months of 2014, Freddie Mac provided $201 billion of liquidity to the mortgage market and has provided $2.4 trillion of liquidity since January 1, 2009 – about four months after the conservatorship began.

MINNEAPOLIS — Former NIACC baseball player Malique Ziegler is now part of the Minnesota Twins organization. The San Francisco Giants sent Ziegler to the Twins as part of a trade for first baseman Tyler Austin. The 22-year-old Ziegler is a former 22nd-round selection in the 2016 MLB Draft who has hit .245 with nine homers and 38 steals in parts of four seasons in the lower levels of the Minor Leagues. He spent most of last season with Class A Augusta and opened the 2019 campaign with Class A Advanced San Jose. The 27-year-old Austin played in two games for the Twins after making the team out of spring training. Austin, acquired by the Twins from the New York Yankees last year for pitcher Lance Lynn, played in a career-high 69 games last season and had several other career bests: 10 home runs and 17 RBIs with 10 doubles. But the Twins claimed first baseman C.J. Cron off waivers from the Tampa Bay Rays during the offseason, lessening Austin’s value.

How much testosterone is too much for a female athlete?

first_imgThe Caster Semenya caseSouth Africa | DANIEL KELLY | The South African athlete, Caster Semenya, has lost her case against the athletic governing body, IAAF, which means that she will have to take medication to lower her testosterone levels if she wishes to continue competing internationally in running events.Last year, the IAAF introduced new regulation for female athletes with “difference of sexual development” (DSD). Athletes with circulating testosterone of five nanomoles per litre of blood (5nmol/L) or above and who are androgen-sensitive, have to meet certain criteria if they wish to compete internationally. One criterion is that DSD athlete must use medication to reduce their blood testosterone level to below 5nmol/L for a continuous period of at least six months.Semenya felt that the IAAF was targeting her, specifically. She took her case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), but the court rejected the 28-year-old athlete’s challenge against the IAAF’s new rules. Although CAS found the rules to be discriminatory, it also said that they were “necessary, reasonable and proportionate”.Difference of sexual developmentSo what exactly is DSD and does a serum testosterone level above 5nmol/L really confer an unfair advantage in running events? DSDs are a group of rare conditions that are acquired before birth, where the reproductive organs and genitals don’t develop as expected. While the condition can be inherited, it usually occurs at random.A person with DSD may have a mix of both male and female sexual characteristics. For example, they may be genetically female, but with reproductive organs that are of the opposite sex (or the other way around), a combination of both male and female, or not clearly either.As the testes are the primary site of testosterone production, if a female is born with these male reproductive organs, their testosterone level will be high, often reaching male levels. Testosterone is involved in many factors that may confer athletic benefit including increased muscle size and strength, along with the ability for the blood to deliver oxygen to those working muscles. This is why elite male athletes are generally faster and stronger than females – and also why males don’t compete against females in most sports. Semenya has high levels of testosterone so she will undoubtedly have at least some associated metabolic benefits.How much benefit testosterone gives female athletes is difficult to define as women cannot convert testosterone into its more potent form and do not possess the same numbers of testosterone receptors (to carry out its actions) as men. The IAAF level of 5nmol/L is still high for female levels, which normally range from 0.1 – 1.8nmol/L. Judging the actual benefit of testosterone and where to draw these lines would require a lot more research and investigation.Where does it stop?However, Semenya hasn’t artificially altered her testosterone levels and while her condition is rare – and gives her a large advantage as a track athlete, they are naturally occurring – so is it not discrimination to make her change her body to compete? Does this take the phrase “all men are equal” to the extreme and try to make everyone the same, even by artificial measures? And where does this stop? Many genetic physical attributes can contribute to athletic performance such as height, muscle composition and aerobic capacity.Dutee Chand, the female sprinter who was also barred from competing against women in 2014 because her natural levels of testosterone exceeded guidelines for female athletes, publicly expressed her disbelief as to why she was penalised for her natural body when she competes against women who are taller and from wealthier backgrounds, which certainly put them at an advantage.Cases like Semenya and Chand will always be contentious and generate more questions than solutions, and there will always be disagreement among athletes and fans over the right way to approach this sensitive issue in elite sport.****Daniel Kelly is a Lecturer in Biochemistry, Sheffield Hallam UniversityShare on: WhatsApplast_img read more
