The EU and UK sanctions against Russia with their many updates continue to cause difficulties and raise questions in the shipping industry.

In this briefing we outline some considerations to keep in mind in order to avoid breaching EU and/or UK sanctions if you are looking to buy or sell a commercial vessel to/from an owner Russian, or to provide technical management services to a yacht owned by a Russian national/company.

Sale/purchase of Russian ships

EU rule

The relevant EU rules applicable to the sale and purchase of Russian commercial vessels are Articles 3f, 3h and 3i of Council Regulation (EU) No 833/2014 (as amended) (the “EU Regulation“).

These relate to “maritime navigation goods and technologies” as well as “luxury goods” and “goods that generate significant income for Russia”, all categories which appear to include commercial ships. It is therefore prohibited:

1. sell, supply, transfer or export, directly or indirectly, vessels, whether originating in the Union or not, “to any natural or legal person, entity or body in Russia” or “for use in Russia” (Articles 3f and 3h).

2. to purchase, import or transfer, directly or indirectly, vessels into the Union “if they originate in Russia or are exported from Russia” (Article 3i).

The term “originating in or exported from Russia” deserves consideration. Vessels located in Russia and exported from Russia as part of a purchase must clearly fall under the category “exported from Russia”, and Russian-built vessels will of course originate in Russia. However, some questions are less clear. What if a ship has no connection with Russia other than where it was built, has been operated elsewhere (for example, in the Mediterranean) in the last 10 years and does not is neither Russian-flagged nor Russian-owned? Or what if a ship belongs to Russia or flies the Russian flag? Both scenarios would benefit from guidance from the European Commission.

With regard to the phrase “any natural or legal person in Russia”, guidance was provided by the Commission on 26 April 2022. This indicates that the prohibition only applies if the Russian person/entity is physically located in Russia.

British rules

The relevant UK rules applicable to the purchase and sale of Russian vessels are the Part 5 Chapter 2 Regulations and Regulations 46B, 46T and 46U of the Russia (Penalties) (Leaving the EU) Regulations 2019 ) (the “UK regulations“).

The UK regulations deal with ‘income-generating property’, ‘luxury property’ and ‘restricted property’. As these are ships, it is prohibited to:

1. Vessels for export to or intended for use in Russia (rules 22 and 46B).

2. directly or indirectly supply or deliver vessels from a third country to a place in Russia (rules 24 and 46B).

3. Directly or indirectly making vessels available to a Russian-related person or for use in Russia (rules 25 and 46B).

4. directly or indirectly acquire vessels originating in or located in Russia, with the intention of bringing such vessels into the UK (Regulation 46T).

5. directly or indirectly supply or deliver vessels from a point in Russia to the UK (Regulation 46U).

Rules 46V, 46W and 46X also prohibit the provision of technical assistance, financial services and funds, and brokerage services, insofar as they relate to:

1. the import of vessels originating in or coming from Russia.

2. the direct or indirect acquisition of vessels originating in or located in Russia, with the intention of bringing such vessels into the United Kingdom.

3. the direct or indirect supply or delivery of vessels from a point in Russia to the United Kingdom.

All of the above prohibitions have the benefit of clarity in the use of the terms “shipped from Russia”, “located in Russia” and “from a place in Russia”. In addition, some prohibitions are limited to situations where the vessel intends to enter or actually enters the UK.

However, they also use the term “originating in Russia”, which has the same ambiguities as the EU provisions described above.

In addition, the term “linked to Russia” deserves consideration.

A person should be considered “linked to Russia” if they are:

“a) a natural person, or an association or a combination of natural persons who are habitually resident in Russia,

(b) an individual who is, or an association or combination of individuals who are, located in Russia,

(c) a person, other than an individual, who is incorporated or constituted under the law of Russia, or

(d) a person, other than an individual, domiciled in Russia.”

The relevant factors therefore appear to be the residence and location of the person acquiring the vessel, rather than nationality. However, if that person has family and/or business interests in Russia, they can still be considered related to Russia, even if they don’t technically reside there. Since the purpose of the ban is to affect persons connected to Russia, whether or not they are Russian nationals, the relevant criterion is that connection.

The test under the UK regulations is whether the counterpart knew or had reasonable grounds to suspect that the shipowner is related to Russia2. Therefore, it will depend on the counterparty’s actual knowledge and/or suspicion and what it would reasonably be expected to infer from that knowledge.

yacht management

EU rules

Under EU rules, the following prohibitions could apply to yacht management services:

1. Technical management

Under Article 3i of the EU Regulation, it is prohibited to purchase, import or transfer, directly or indirectly, yachts into the Union if they originate in Russia or are exported from Russia. It is further prohibited to provide technical assistance, brokerage services or other services related to these yachts or to supply, manufacture, maintain or use these yachts, directly or indirectly, in connection with the aforementioned prohibition.3 Specific definitions of “technical assistance” and “brokerage services” are provided for in the EU Regulation.

2. Accounting, bookkeeping and other services

Under Article 5n of the EU Regulation, it is prohibited to provide, directly or indirectly, accounting, auditing services, including statutory auditing, bookkeeping or tax advice, or business and management consulting or public relations services (which may well be part of management services) to legal persons, entities or bodies established in Russia.4 There is no formal indication as to whether this prohibition extends to natural or natural persons established in Russia.

British rules

Under UK rules, there would not appear to be a similar provision to Article 3i of the EU Regulation, but there is a comparable provision to Article 5n. Regulation 54C of the UK regulations prohibits the provision of business and management consultancy services to a Russian-related person. It would appear that this prohibition extends to individuals or natural persons established in Russia, given the interpretation of “linked to Russia” under UK regulations (see above).

While these prohibitions appear to be limited to Russian nationals and/or persons/entities based in Russia, the relevant considerations likely go beyond strict yacht ownership. Depending on the use of the yacht, particularly with regard to pleasure yachts, a company may be considered to provide technical management services (indirectly) to other persons having use of the yacht (for example if the yacht owner was receiving Russian residents on the yacht).

HFW Comment

With regard to the purchase of Russian commercial vessels, in the absence of further guidance from the European Commission, we recommend adopting the broadest possible meaning of the term “come from Russia or are exported from Russia “.

When it comes to connecting with Russia, whether it’s selling a ship or managing a yacht, the key is to look beyond ownership. Remember that you may be considered to be providing services to anyone using the yacht and a connection to Russia may exist despite the lack of Russian nationality or residency.

By: Yuritza Arroyo

United Way of Greater Newark received a $30,000 grant from Santander Bank to support technical assistance provided to small businesses through the Greater Newark Enterprises Corporation’s BackStop program.

According to officials, the BackStop program explores three avenues small businesses can enroll in to improve their back-end systems and processes.

Officials say one-year tracks teach bookkeeping, building business credit and branding, website and digital marketing.

“United Way of Greater Newark is deeply connected to the community and understands the needs of those we serve, including small businesses,” said Catherine Wilson, President and CEO of UWGN.

“This knowledge is essential to collaborate and support initiatives such as the BackStop program. Working with the Greater Newark Enterprises Corporation enables us to provide crucial educational services to improve the sustainability of small businesses in a post-pandemic world.

United Way of Greater Newark and Greater Newark Enterprises Corporation provided assistance to small businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic.

United Way has helped facilitate emergency relief with its small business grant program, while the Greater Newark Enterprises Corporation has provided micro-business loans.

During the application and funding process, United Way found that 35% of applicants were ineligible for assistance because they lacked various technical components to run a business.

“We were disappointed when we had to turn away business owners who met the eligibility criteria due to gaps in their applications,” said UWGN Director of Financial Stability Danielle Corea-Smith.

“Some companies couldn’t provide the proper financial information or proof of liability insurance, for example. It made me realize that it was possible to help some of these owners improve their skills in accounting and other fields.

Filling these necessary technical gaps has been the driving force behind the BackStop program.

“At GNEC, we understand that running a business is a complicated task, which is why, with the help of UWGN, we designed BackStop to allow entrepreneurs to focus on their strengths while providing experts to help with back-office tasks that entrepreneurs might not have the skills or time to undertake,” said GNEC Executive Director Victor Salama.

“Our three tracks enable micro-business owners to survive tough economic times and start positioning themselves for growth.”

“You have a lot of really passionate people who are entrepreneurs or small business owners, and sometimes it’s the little bits and pieces that can hold them back from achieving their dreams,” Corea-Smith said. “They are the ones I see programs like this supporting. This program can help make someone’s dream come true.”

Ruth E. Hammell (Lesley) Lefever, 88, of Kirkwood, PA, returned home to be with her Lord and Savior on Monday, October 31, 2022, at home with her family. She was born on March 14, 1934 in Camden, NJ. She was the daughter of the late Reeve H. Hammell and the late Mary (Penhallow) Hammell of West Collingswood, NJ.

She attended Collingswood High School. She then attended Penn State University and earned a degree in general science and home economics. At Penn State, she met and married Hugh Lesley. They moved to the farm in southern Lancaster County to raise a family and teach in the school district of Oxford, Pennsylvania. She taught for 27 years in the Oxford and Solanco school systems.

She was predeceased by her parents, her twin brother Rodney, her brother Robert, her sister Jean, her first husband, Hugh Lesley, and her second husband, James Lefever. She is survived by her four children, Kenneth Lesley (and Catherine Osman), Karen Lesley (and Ronald Rice), Eileen Scotten (and Michael Godra) and Peter Lesley. She has five grandchildren, David Lesley, Sarah Osman Lesley, Dwayne Hugh Scotten, R. Christopher Scotten and Cheyenne Lesley. She has five great-grandchildren, Tyler Scotten, Jared Scotten, Landon Scotten, Olivia Scotten and Sydney Fey.

Ruth was a life member of the Union Presbyterian Church. She led the Junior Choir for 15 years. She sang in the senior choir, supported the church’s accounts as treasurer, and was always available to support the many ministries of the church. She was an active member of the community. She belonged to the Soroptimist Club and the Octoraro Art Association. His art was his passion. She enjoyed teaching arts and crafts to anyone who wanted to learn.

She and Hugh built their home from 1960 based on a photo she saw in Better Homes and Gardens. She was a self-taught home designer and mason who laid all the stones for the house herself with the help of her husband and children.

Ruth loved to travel. She had close friends in France and traveled to Southeast Asia with her son and daughter-in-law.

The cancer that ultimately claimed her life began when she was 42. She never let cancer control her. Despite her many returns, she always kept a positive attitude.

Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, November 12, 2022 at Union Presbyterian Church, 5637 Street Rd., Kirkwood, PA where friends and family may visit beginning at 10:11 a.m. Interment will be in the cemetery of the Union.

Candidates are listed alphabetically by last name.

Declarations of the candidates

Tracy Ellis-Weit

retired teacher

votefortracy2022.com

I have lived in Atascadero for 30 years and raised our family of three children who are all graduates of the Atascadero Unified School District.

As parents, my husband and I were coaches, volunteers and organizers for each of our children’s extracurricular activities, both sports and university.

As a retired Atascadero Unified School District teacher with over 30 years of classroom experience, I will bring my elementary, middle, and high school teaching experience to the decision-making process so I can be an advocate for all. students, families, and schools.

My decision to run for AUSD School Board Trustee because I want to use my classroom experience to improve the health, well-being, and academic success of all students in our community. As Trustee, I will seek the knowledge and expertise of our dedicated teachers and support staff whose services are essential to providing the best educational opportunities AUSD can provide. I will respect, value and encourage the involvement of parents, students and the community to ensure academic success, career readiness and good citizens.

Tami Gunther

Incumbent

Accountant / Personal Assistant

TamiGunther4AUSD@gmail.com

I am a permanent resident of SLO County and a 28 year old resident of the Atascadero School District. My two children attended AUSD schools from kindergarten through high school. I spent many years actively involved with the PTA, school site councils and numerous district-level committees before being elected to the school board in 2006.

In addition to my local board, I am also one of 30 trustees of the California School Boards Association and the board of the Tri-County Education Coalition.

I am a strong advocate for career arts and technology (CTE) education and the use of advisory boards whenever possible to gather feedback from our stakeholders.

School boards should focus on student education, not political agendas. Our schools must be safe places, both physically and emotionally, for all students and staff, and courtesy and respect must be exemplary at all times.

Rebecca Koznek

Mother

koznekforausd.com

As a parent of a child with special needs, I think we need stronger representation on the school board. Surprisingly, 14% of the AUSD student population has an IEP (individualized educational program). An IEP is a program developed to ensure that a child with a disability receives specialized instruction and related services.

I served for four years as the AUSD Parent Representative at the San Luis Obispo County CAC SELPA (Community Advisory Committee); one year as Vice President, and President for the past two years.

As my daughter with special needs attended elementary school in Santa Rosa, we noticed that the school needed a playground suitable for these children. I approached the school board with my concerns and was able to get a crawl tube and independent activity boards. Others were added to other schools in the district. The same year, AUSD awarded me the “Parent Advocate of the Year” award.

As an elected member of your school board, I will devote myself to my oath of office by upholding the Constitution of our country and our state. I will represent the forgotten voices of all parents. I promise to be your spokesperson and your child’s advocate.

Denise McGrew Kane

Parent/Small Business Owner

deniseforboard.com

I am a mother of three children who attend AUSD schools. I was born and raised here in North San Luis Obispo County. I have been an entrepreneur and small business owner for over 20 years.

Many aspects of running a business are tied to being a member of a board of directors. I have a deep understanding of financial matters as I have always handled all accounting/bookkeeping, budgeting, payroll etc. of my business. .

I have managed over 10-50 employees/independent contractors, with a focus on creating a positive workplace, team collaboration, setting goals, increasing production, managing time, etc.

I have developed several training programs. I am a successful negotiator, always looking both ways, and have been able to deliver win/win results in addition to being able to think outside the box to find solutions. I believe that my skills acquired over the past 20 years in business will be an asset to our district, in addition to having the perspective of a parent with children in the district.

Pierced

Stay-at-home mom and community volunteer

vypierce.org

My husband and I have three children enrolled in the Atascadero Unified School District in grades 12, 7, and 4.

As a stay-at-home mom, I have spent the past 12 years volunteering at their schools and non-profit organizations such as the Atascadero Public Schools Committee (CAPS) and have helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for our students and our schools. I am currently President of the PTO at Atascadero Middle School, Treasurer of the Atascadero High School Band Boosters, and Treasurer of the San Gabriel PTA.

Also, I sit on several district committees and volunteer once a week in my son’s class, so I’m very up to date with what’s going on in the schools and the district. My experience, skills, and demonstrated ability to lead and work with many different people toward a common goal would help our school district meet the challenges we currently face.

George Shoemaker

Incumbent

Retired teacher and farmer

cobblervineyard@gmail.com

I have 15 years of teaching experience and over 22 years of coaching experience in five different sports, working with youth sports and up to the community college level.

Prior to serving the last five years on the school board, I served three years on the AUSD Bond Oversite Committee. Prior to that, I was a parent’s assistant for six years at Monterey Road School. My two youngest children went through the AUSD system.

My wife is a seventh grade teacher at Atascadero Middle School. I have a master’s degree in public policy from Cal Poly. During my time on the board, I have advocated for regular assessment of students and targeted interventions to help them in areas where they need support. I have also been an advocate for a financially strong district and for the AUSD to be a district that supports and respects all of our staff.

Candidates Chris Collins and Scott Staton did not participate.

Since the onslaught of the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses and the workforce have attempted to navigate the new landscape of remote work. More and more people are turning to working from home and finding a balance between motivation and convenience. After a few years, this gradual change has highlighted the pros and cons of having a high percentage of people who don’t come to the office every day.

With top inflation and even higher gas prices, it might be time to trade in your pass for a home office. The economy could just thank you. Here are 15 of the best jobs from home, organized by the highest paying, easiest to start, and fastest growing. Working from home is no longer just a dream scenario, it’s an achievable reality.

Top 3 highest paying jobs to work from home

Remote work is convenient and comfortable, but you also need to earn a living, and hopefully well. The highest paying remote positions are going to be competitive and in demand, but remote work is constantly expanding, and so are these fields.

Project Manager

Project managers and project management specialists oversee all stages of organizing a product or service within a company. From timelines and planning to customer and customer relations, this position handles all the details while leading a technical team. Depending on the company and the experience level of the individual, the salary will vary, but it is a high salary with excellent growth potential.

IT systems analyst

IT systems analysts solve all data processing problems while proposing solutions for complex computer applications. Their function is to develop new computer systems, or improve existing computer systems to better serve the companies using the software.

software developer

Software developers analyze, research, design, create and develop programs and software for computer networks and systems. In the field of technology and computing, software developers are one of the highest paying positions. It’s a data-driven career with a focus on math and engineering skills.

The easiest jobs to work from home

No job has zero requirements or responsibilities, but many remote opportunities are ideal for people looking to develop a different set of skills or start a new career. These careers lend themselves well to working from home.

Customer Service Representative

Customer service representatives build and maintain customer relationships by answering questions and responding to complaints about a company’s product or service. This position is largely over the phone or email and often has a script to work from, so there is little training or experience required.

Virtual Administrative Assistant

Virtual Administrative Assistants function as a high-level support for companies or business leaders. They arrange schedules, meetings and conference calls and correspond through phone calls and emails. The expansion of technology with all avenues of communication now makes it possible to work remotely for this position – office work without the office.

medical transcriptionist

Medical transcriptionists transcribe and type medical reports for doctors and others health practitioners. This position is well suited to those with typing skills and some knowledge of medical terminology. Transcription is basically writing down and recording what has been dictated to you for filing purposes.

online tutor

Online Tutors assist in the teaching of various subjects for one student or groups of students. Many people are looking for tutors to help them prepare for standardized tests, but also need them to help with their general classroom work and curriculum.

The fastest growing jobs for working from home

As more businesses embrace virtual and work-from-home positions, the scope of who can work remotely — and where they can work remotely — has grown. When you remove geography and commute out of the equation, multitudes of opportunities present themselves.

Graphic designer

Graphic designers use design software to create custom logos, images, menus, and landing pages, to name a few. These designs are used for commercial or promotional needs.

Virtual recruiter
