London Stock Exchange looks to provide a clearing service to City

first_img London Stock Exchange looks to provide a clearing service to City Share KCS-content Sunday 19 September 2010 10:42 pm whatsapp THE London Stock Exchange (LSE) has entered into discussions with a raft of European and Wall Street banks about funding and building a clearing house in London, it is understood.LSE chief executive Xavier Rolet, who took over from Clara Fuse in May last year, is thought to be at the forefront of the discussions. A clearing house ensures that trades between a buyer and seller are completed, even if one party fails to pay.If the LSE goes ahead with the plans it will compete with European rivals Eurex, which is owned by Germany’s Deutsche Borse, and NYSE Liffe, which is the former London International Financial Futures Exchange.The news comes amid reports that the LSE is on the hunt for a successor for its chairman, Chris Gibson-Smith But a City insider told City A.M.: “If you are asking if there is a hunt for a new chairman, the answer is no. The situation is in about two years time it is possible that Chris may decide to step down but that’s two years away. It’s pure speculation.” More From Our Partners Supermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and‘The Love Boat’ captain Gavin MacLeod dies at 90nypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comcenter_img Show Comments ▼ whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Tags: NULLlast_img read more

That aviation is going through an awful time right now is an understatement. The upswing has started for most other segments of the economy, but we are still waiting for air travel to restart in earnest. Not all aviation stocks are made equalThere are better days ahead in store though, I feel. And some aviation stocks have already run-up significantly in anticipation of better times. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Low-cost airline Wizz Air, for instance, was recently at all-time-highs. RyanAir, another low-cost carrier, saw its share price rise to three-year highs. easyJet has also seen significant gains over the past year. Yet the speedy share price rise for these stocks combined with the expected slow healing of their financial health makes me doubtful if they can rise more in the near future. But there are two stocks in aviation I see as having much potential.One is British Airways owner International Consolidated Airlines Group (LSE: IAG) and the other is aircraft engines’ provider Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR). They stand out for how little they have gained since last year’s market crash. IAG’s share price is actually lower than it was at the same time last year and the Rolls-Royce share price is almost at the same level.Rolls-Royce or IAG – which is the better buy?This could be a good opportunity to buy for me. But I do not want to expose myself a whole lot to aviation yet. So, I would like to buy shares of either IAG or Rolls-Royce, not both. The question now is: which one of them is a better investment for me?Three ways to assessTo assess this, I compared them across three parameters. One, their share price trends before the market crash. Two, their financial performances pre-pandemic. And three, their own outlooks for the rest of the year.In understanding their share price performances, I considered the five-year period between early 2015 and early 2020. Turns out that both their share prices have dropped over this time, albeit with much fluctuation during the interim. In terms of financial performance, IAG is ahead of Rolls-Royce. IAG showed steady growth in revenue and was also profitable in the three years before the pandemic. Rolls-Royce too saw growth in revenue, but it was loss-making for two of the three years. And now it has had another bad year. The outlook for both companies has improved, with some caution of course. But I think Rolls-Royce may be better placed even if aviation recovery is slow. Besides civil aerospace, power systems and defence systems are important sources of revenue for it. And it is optimistic about their recovery. If, however, air travel restarts as planned, IAG can start recovering too. It does mention a “high level” of pent-up demand in its latest update. My takeawayBased on this assessment, I lean towards IAG, largely because of its past performance. However, I will wait for another month to see how air travel picks up. That should indicate better which of the two is better placed. There’s a ‘double agent’ hiding in the FTSE… we recommend you buy it!last_img read more

The median home price in California is $549,000. The median rent is $2,800. Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Aerial view of Clairemont Lutheran Church in San Diego, with a rendering of proposed affordable housing project in the parking lot, bottom right. Image courtesy of Yigby.orgAbout four years ago, Clairemont Lutheran Church members in San Diego decided they needed to do something about the housing crisis affecting their community.The church was part of an interfaith shelter network in which congregations open their spaces for a certain length of time to house families in crisis. During this time, churches host families for two weeks while they get back on their feet.The families rotate to other churches in the network, but once that cycle runs out, they may have nowhere else to seek shelter, Doolittle said.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York As the church made plans to redevelop its fellowship hall, Doolittle said they sought to include affordable housing as part of that project. The church proposed building a number of affordable apartments on part of their current parking lot.Church leaders thought the affordable housing component could also speed up the approval process for the project. Instead, they encountered more roadblocks including parking restrictions and costly environmental impact reports.In San Diego, city code makes it a requirement for churches to have a certain number of parking spaces based on the number of people who can fit in the sanctuary.The renovation of the church’s fellowship hall is underway, but the housing element is on hold for now.However, that could soon change.On Nov. 6, a subcommittee of the San Diego City Council voted in favor on an item that would make it easier for faith communities to get approval to build housing on their parking lots. Under this plan, excess parking spaces could be used as a location for housing. The City Council will consider the item at a future meeting.Clairemont Lutheran Church plans to jump-start its housing efforts next year, hoping to put between 16 and 21 apartments on its parking lot.To housing advocate Tom Theisen, the city’s move is a step in the right direction.Theisen — a retired attorney and former chair of the Regional Task Force on the Homeless — is part of the San Diego YIGBY working group that helps activate under-utilized faith community properties suitable for residential units.He says the YIGBY group shows how an abundance of church land across the county can help address the region’s housing shortage. Theisen said that in the past, individual churches were going to the government proposing small projects of 15 to 20 units.“It’s hard to create any change when you’re talking about individual small projects,” Theisen said.Theisen said the YIGBY group emerged when San Diego County tax collector Dan McAllister identified about 1,100 faith community properties on more than 2,000 acres of land. Theisen said a substantial portion of that land is available for housing.“If we look at this from the perspective of ‘How do we help the churches help the needy in their community and look at it countywide?’ we’re talking hundreds of potential housing units, possibly thousands,” Theisen said.Theisen estimates construction costs could be “primarily if not exclusively” paid through income coming in from the housing.“The idea is to start building housing and start putting people in houses,” Theisen said.People tour St. Paul’s Commons in Walnut Creek, California, in September 2019.

It’s also where the nonprofit Trinity Center will have a physical space to serve people who are homeless.The project will include 45 affordable apartments. The church leased its land to Berkeley-based developer Resources for Community Development, which used a property management company to perform background checks, call references and conduct interviews for apartment applications.The development is taking over a single-family home where Trinity Center provided services to the homeless. The Rev. Krista Fregoso said they were already assisting people who were homeless and later thought, “What if we became a part of the solution, too?”To Fregoso, “This is just one part of how we live out our faith. We hope to be a model for other faith communities who might see their property in a different way.” Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Submit a Press Release Submit an Event Listing Rector Albany, NY The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group An artistic rendering of the future St. Paul’s Commons in Northern California.

New Zealand woes continue as Scott Barrett picks up suspension after dangerous shoulder

first_imgTuesday Aug 13, 2019 New Zealand woes continue as Scott Barrett picks up suspension after dangerous shoulder The debate surrounding the severity of the Scott Barrett red card has been intensified with news today that the sending off has warranted a suspension of a few weeks.ADVERTISEMENTThe SANZAAR Foul Play Review Committee accepted a guilty plea from Barrett for contravening Law 9.16: A player must not charge or knock down an opponent carrying the ball without attempting to grasp the player, after he was Red Carded during the 47-26 loss to the Wallabies at the weekend.WATCH: Beauden Barrett steamrolled in Wallabies Try of the WeekBarrett has been suspended from all forms of the game for 3 weeks, up to and including Sunday 1 September 2019.The SANZAAR Foul Play Review Committee of Adam Casselden SC (Chairman), Stefan Terblanche and Eroni Clarke assessed the case.In his finding, Foul Play Review Committee Chairman Adam Casselden SC ruled the following:“Having conducted a detailed review of all the available evidence, including all camera angles and additional evidence, including submissions from his legal representative, Stephen Cottrell, the Foul Play Review Committee upheld the Red Card under Law 9.16.“With respect to sanction the Foul Play Review Committee deemed the act of foul play merited a mid-range entry point of 6 weeks due to World Rugby instructions that dictate any incident of foul play which results in contact with the head and/or neck must start at a mid-range level. However, taking into account mitigating factors including the Player’s exemplary judicial record, his expressed remorse and the fact the Player has pleaded guilty at the first available opportunity, the Foul Play Review Committee reduced the suspension to 3 weeks.ADVERTISEMENT“The Foul Play Review Committee adjourned the hearing to seek more evidence regarding the Player’s proposed schedule of matches. Upon reconvening the Foul Play Review Committee was presented with extensive evidence demonstrating the Player’s intended playing schedule. The player is therefore suspended for 3 weeks, up to and including Sunday 1 September 2019.”The All Blacks finished the Rugby Championship in third place, while South Africa lifted the trophy in Salta after a convincing win over Argentina.New Zealand next host the Wallabies in the deciding Bledisloe Cup fixture in Auckland this coming weekend.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

British Red Cross commits to opt-in only telephone fundraising

The ICO found the British Red Cross had complied with the law, but offered advice around further good practice that could be implemented.According to the ICO, while the British Red Cross is the first charity to sign an undertaking of this type, it is also currently working with other organisations along these lines.Andy Curry, ICO group enforcement manager, said:“A big part of our work is working with companies who want to get it right. British Red Cross is a good example of that. They’ve seen the benefits of not just following the law, but following best practice, and we’re pleased that we’ve been able to work with them on this.”  116 total views,  1 views today Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis13 Melanie May | 1 March 2016 | News About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Dungloe and Glenties Sewerage Schemes cleared to go to tender

first_img Pinterest Dungloe and Glenties Sewerage Schemes cleared to go to tender News Dail to vote later on extending emergency Covid powers Facebook Environment Minister Phil Hogan has cleared the Dungloe and Glenties Sewerage Schemes to go to tender.In a statement, Donegal South West Deputy and Junior Gaeltacht Minister Dinny Mc Ginley says he hopes Donegal County Council now moves swiftly to progress the work.According to a statement issued through Dinny Mc Ginley’s office last night, Phil Hogan has approved tender documents for the work, which involves the provision of new wastewater treatment plants, pumping stations and sewers in Dungloe & Glenties, and it is a matter for Donegal County Council to advance the combined scheme through the tender process.Minister of State McGinley welcomed  progress on these schemes and is hopeful that there will be no undue delay in commencing work on the projects.The two schemes are long awaited. In April 2010, the previous government approved the two schemes to move to the contracting stage, with a combined estimated cost of €7million.At the time, North West MEP Pat The Cope Gallagher said as all pre-tender documents were prepared, the tender process should have been relatively quick, and he was anticipating going to construction in 2011. Now, almost two years later, it seem the projects are about to move forward.

C. Mittal.In this behalf, the status report filed by Union of India before the Delhi High Court on the Council’s own application raising concerns regarding buildings which are air conditioned and the people working in such environment. The Central Public Works Department, which maintains a large number of Central government offices across the country, has in the status report acknowledged the widespread concern that in these times, when the entire world is facing the threat of COVID, with the summer approaching, the operation of circulating fans, coolers and ACs in offices and work spaces, may lead to the spread of the virus.In order to provide adequate protection against this, the CPWD Directorate had examined the COVID 19 Guidance Document for Air Conditioning and Ventilation prepared by the ISHRAE Task Force (Indian Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers) on how to operate air conditioning and ventilation systems to control the spread of coronavirus in residences, workspaces and health care facilities. Accordingly, by an Office Memorandum of April 22, the Department decided to use these HVAC guidelines, prepared upon discussion with experts from the industry, research and academia, for the guidance of the field formations of the CPWD throughout the country. It directed that these guidelines are to be implemented by the various field offices of the CPWD which are maintaining Central government work spaces throughout the country to prevent any contamination by air circulation in these offices manned by government officers and staff.”We are sure that on such an important issue, your ministry must have taken care of this particular aspect before commencement of domestic flights. However, you may please ensure, if not already, to take immediate adequate measures at all central air conditioned airports so that there is no spread of coronavirus”, pleads the BCD Chairman.He further avers that “we do not know how far it is correct, but the general message is that this virus came from abroad and was carried by passengers travelling to India from various foreign countries”, lamenting that “If at the initial stage, care could have been taken in January 2020 onwards, things would have been different”. “Now that, all States / UTs are effected, precautions must be taken so interstate risk is ruled out”, it is urged.The Council has further pointed out that the use of central air conditioners in the buildings of the High Court of Delhi for the same reason had to be abandoned and alternative arrangements are being made. “We hope you would kindly take absolute care of everybody, who intends to travel by domestic flight, at all the airports”, reads the letter.Next Storylast_img read more
