SailPoint and Corporate Integrity to Discuss the New Model Audit Rule for 2010

AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- SailPoint is hosting a live webinar with Michael Rasmussen of Corporate Integrity to discuss the implications of the Model Audit Rule (MAR). Once the MAR goes into effect on January 1st, 2010, many non-public insurers will for the first time be required to comply with more stringent regulatory provisions, and public insurers that are already subject to Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) will be subject to additional reporting requirements.

Seneca Nation of Indians Accuses President Barack Obama of Deliberately Betraying Native Americans by Signing the PACT Act

CATTARAUGUS TERRITORY, N.Y., April 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Seneca Nation President Barry E. Snyder Sr. called today's signing of the PACT (Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking) Act a "deliberate betrayal" of all Native Americans. "The President of the United States invited Native American leaders to Washington D.C. in November and looked us in the eye as a sign of good faith in his pledge to protect federal treaties," Snyder said. "Now four months later he has betrayed that promise." "In 1779, President George Washington was referred to as 'Hanodagonyas,' an Iroquois term meaning 'town destroyer,' for his attempt to quell Native American uprisings. I think that term should be dusted off and given to Barack Obama for the economic destruction that Pact Act will cause," Snyder said.
