(Bloomberg) -- Former U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron broke his silence over the controversy of his lobbying for Greensill Capital, defending his actions and saying he was right to contact the finance ministry.“I thought it was right for me to make representations on behalf of a company involved in financing a large number of U.K. firms,” Cameron said in a statement via the Press Association. “This was at a time of crisis for the U.K. economy, where everyone was looking for efficient ways to get money to businesses.”U.K.’s Cameron Greensill Controversy Grows as Hancock Drawn InCameron and government ministers have come under fire in recent weeks for their connections to Greensill, which specialized in financing supply-chain invoices and collapsed last month.Cameron, an adviser to the firm, had lobbied Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak to give Greensill access to Britain’s pandemic support program. He also arranged a private meeting with Health Secretary Matthew Hancock, after which a Greensill payment program was used in the National Health Service, according to the Sunday Times.Cameron did nevertheless say there were “important lessons” to be learned about how former ministers and prime ministers interact with the government, and that communications “need to be done through only the most formal of channels, so there can be no room for misinterpretation.”Read More: David Cameron’s Full Statement on Greensill Give to Press Association“In my representations to government, I was breaking no codes of conduct and no government rules,” he said. “The Registrar of Consultant Lobbyists has found that my activities did not fall within the criteria that require registration.”(Updates with more details from third paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

New York, NY, April 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire -- Global Arena Holding, Inc. (the “Company”) (OTC Markets: GAHC), a growth oriented, acquisition minded company, focused on specific niche markets offering exponential growth — is pleased to announce that the Company has filed its 10-K, and is excited to share a few highlights which will support management efforts at assisting its subsidiary, Global Election Services, Inc. (“GES”), further its expansion into government elections. Management reported that revenues for the 12 months ended December 31, 2020 were $641,629, compared to $477,773 for the 12 months ending 2019 – a roughly 34% increase for the period. Management also reported $308,223 in ‘Deferred Revenue’ for the year ending December 31, 2020; expected to be earned during 2021. For the 12 months ending 2019, the Company had reported 'Deferred Revenue' of just $40,500. This increase speaks largely to the growing demand for GES’s election services, even during the Covid-19 pandemic. Management also reported an important, but easily overlooked item, in that the Company extinguished $622,767 of convertible notes and $199,189 of accrued interest in Q1 of 2021. As reflected in the Subsequent Events footnote to the financial statements, the Company entered into a note settlement agreement, paying $25,000 in cash, and issuing 75,000,000 shares of common stock to the noteholder. Given the conversion features on the extinguished notes, along with the accrued interest, this settlement is potentially accretive to the balance sheet and should lend to further building shareholder confidence. “There are several successes that can be gleamed from our 10-K, including GES expanding its track record by entering the private government election space, where GES successfully completed the Statewide Presidential Primary for North Dakota Democratic-NPL. I believe it was important to highlight revenue growth and debt reduction as the key points to be aware of,” stated John S. Matthews, Chairman of GAHC. “Coverage of these two items helps establish a narrative around the sincere attention we place on our fiscal health, as well as our absolute intention to build a fundamentally sound company.” “There is a lot to be proud of, particularly those events born from our 2020 successes and we look forward to taking full advantage of all the opportunities they may bring us in 2021. I would like to thank our shareholders for their support, and I especially want to thank our staff, and outside vendors who continued administering elections under the most difficult of environments caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, and continued working, and improving the reputation of GES.” As always, management recommends reading the full 10K in its entirety and contact the Company with any questions.

The Recover Organization assists potential addicts in educating about Suboxone and locating the Suboxone treatment clinic nearest to them for a quicker recovery and begin treatment as early as possibleHUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., April 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- According to new preliminary statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 81,000 opioid overdose deaths happened in the United States in the fiscal year that ended in May 2020. The most significant number of overdose deaths ever reported in 12 months (CDC). Opioids, especially synthetic opioids (apart from methadone), are the leading cause of drug overdose deaths. Synthesized opioids are associated with 72.9 percent of opioid-related overdose deaths. While the whole world continues to struggle to overcome this pandemic, everyone must not overlook that different people are adversely affected in various ways. People must care about those who are suffering as a result of unforeseen consequences. The rise in overdose (opioid) deaths emphasizes the importance of maintaining access to essential care for those most at risk of overdose, as well as expanding prevention and management efforts. Opioid-addicted people have an unhealthy body. Overall, the consequences of drug misuse and addiction can be far-reaching. They have the potential to affect almost any organ of the body. Drug addicted body is much prone to diseases and will have a more challenging time battling with covid. According to a recent study, those with opioid addiction were 2.4 times more likely to have COVID-19 than those without. The reasons for the high risk of COVID-19 infection and adverse effects in people who use opioids are most likely complicated. Chronic drug abuse harms or weakens the body in ways that render drug users more prone to disease. Opioid addiction or overdose is treated globally using Suboxone. Suboxone is an extremely potent prescription medication most commonly used to treat opioid or narcotic pain relief addictions. It comprises buprenorphine and naloxone as active ingredients. Buprenorphine, a moderate opioid agonist, inhibits opiate receptors and decreases addiction. The second component, naloxone, aids in the reversal of opioid side effects. It was licensed in 2002 solely for the treatment of opioid addiction. Some physicians recommend Suboxone treatment as a pain reliever, and it should only be used as directed or as part of a structured treatment framework that involves therapy. If someone is seeking a Suboxone Doctor in Orange County CA for their loved ones, then contacting a clinic that provides this drug may be a good option for them. The mission of this organization is to help people struggling with drug addiction.
