first_img KCS-content HOUSING minister Grant Shapps said yesterday that unaffordable house prices were “crazy”, and he wanted to stabilise the market to bring home-ownership within the reach of more younger people.“It’s crazy that we think in this country it’s normal to have a situation where the most important thing – a roof over somebody’s head – is so unaffordable to such a large number of our fellow citizens,” he said in a radio interview.Shapps said policies such as regulation of the mortgage market and increasing the supply of new houses could have an impact on the market.“Over the long term, it would perhaps be desirable if house prices didn’t do very much at all,” he said. “Over a longer period of time that would allow average earnings to catch up and allow housing to become a more affordable commodity.”Shapps also said in a press interview over the weekend that an example of a “rational” market would be one in which house prices rose by two per cent a year, while earnings rose by four per cent.Property prices have weakened since late summer after a rebound in late 2009, and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors said in its housing forecast last month that it expected prices to remain broadly flat in 2011. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ More From Our Partners Brave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comFort Bragg soldier accused of killing another servicewoman over exthegrio.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgMan on bail for murder arrested after pet tiger escapes Houston homethegrio.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFans call out hypocrisy as Tebow returns to NFL while Kaepernick is still outthegrio.comLA news reporter doesn’t seem to recognize actor Mark Currythegrio.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comColin Kaepernick to publish book on abolishing the policethegrio.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comPorsha Williams engaged to ex-husband of ‘RHOA’ co-star Falynn Guobadiathegrio.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comKansas coach fired for using N-word toward Black playerthegrio.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.com Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesUndoBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndoAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteUndoDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’DefinitionUndoTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

But analysts are expecting the commission’s final report in September to recommend Lloyds sell an extra 200 to 400 branches – on top of the 600 already agreed – to partially undo the bank’s merger with HBOS. One analyst estimated a £100m hit to its pre-tax profit for every 100 branches sold.ICB chair Sir John Vickers said yesterday that in order to aid competition in retail banking, “the Lloyds divestiture could and should be strengthened substantially”. Asked to provide details, he said only: “Substantially means substantially.”But there are questions about the legality of any moves to force Lloyds to sell more of the branches it acquired during its merger with HBOS, for which the government explicitly waived competition law.Baker & McKenzie partner Ian Mason said: “It’s certainly possible there might be some sort of legal challenge, even by shareholders… It would be very messy.”Lloyds’s biggest shareholder is the British taxpayer, represented by the agency UKFI, which holds 41 per cent of the bank’s shares and has a mandate to maximise profit when selling them. The mandate puts UKFI on a collision course with the ICB.Asked whether the commission could actually push through further branch sales, Vickers admitted its recommendations have no legal power. ICB member Martin Taylor said simply: “We would be grateful if UKFI would cooperate.”The report suggests that the government “seek an agreement with Lloyds” on branch sales, rather than attempting to force them upon the bank. But Lloyds chief executive António Horta-Osório said: “We are surprised that the interim report is proposing a potential expansion of Project Verde [branch sales], which we believe is not in the interests of our customers. This option appears to be based on limited evidence.”UKFI declined to comment. whatsapp Lloyds wages war on Vickers report Monday 11 April 2011 8:58 pm 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 PastMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailSenior Living | Search AdsNew Senior Apartments Coming to Scottsdale (Take A Look at The Prices)Senior Living | Search AdsSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepediamoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen HeraldBetterBeDrones Capture Images No One Was Suppose to SeeBetterBelast_img read more


first_img Everywhere you look, FTSE 100 stocks are crashing. Travel operator TUI AG is down 40% over the last month. Cruise operator Carnival is down 30%. Overall, the FTSE 100 is down around 15%. Yet not every company is having a rough time of it. Two of the best performers of recent years are defying the downturn and have continued to grow over the last month. Now could be a good time to check out the Hikma Pharmaceuticals (LSE: HIK) and Rentokil Initial (LSE: RTO) share prices, which are staying afloat, as almost every other company sinks along with the market.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…Pharmaceutical stocks tend to hold their own when stock markets are falling, because people continue to fall ill in a recession, often more than before. Hikma PharmaceuticalsThis is particularly true now, as markets fall due to the coronavirus global health scare. Hikma stock is up around 5% over the last week, at time of writing. Over two years, it’s up 124%.Hikma was given a timely lift by a positive set of preliminaries last week, which showed group core revenue up 6%, with group operating profit surging 33% to $493m. It also strengthened its balance sheet by trimming net debt to $242m, while raising his full-year dividend more than 15% to 44 cents per share.Many investors overlook Hikma as they target pharma big guns AstraZeneca and GlaxoSmithKline. But this £4.72bn stock has huge growth potential, launching 108 new products across all its global markets last year, and signing 18 licensing agreements for the US and MENA. Its flowing pipeline should help drive future revenues.Hikma shares should also benefit from its recent blockbuster agreement with Glenmark Pharmaceuticals. Some pharmaceutical stocks have soared on speculation about developing new coronavirus treatments, leaving them overbought.But that isn’t the driver here. Hikma is just a very good company on a roll. Yet it trades at a modest valuation of 14.5 times forward earnings, while its 1.8% yield is covered 3.7 times by earnings, giving plenty of scope for growth. I’d buy it for the long-term.Rentokil InitialRentokil Initial is also up around 5% over the past week, and a bumper 100% over two years, during which time the FTSE 100 as a whole actually fell 7.5%.The £9.59bn group is a direct beneficiary of current worries because, along with its renowned pest control services, it also supplies hand washing and hand sanitising services. Again though, this is far from a pure coronavirus play. Last week, the Rentokil share price flew as it posted a 10% increase in adjusted pre-tax profits to £341m, with organic revenue growth of 4% — its highest level in 15 years.This is a global business, and is performing strongly in its Pacific business region, as countries urbanise and pest control becomes more important, as well as in the UK and Europe.The big concern is that, after recent share price success, Rentokil stock looks pricey. It trades at 31.8 times forecast earnings, while the yield is relatively low at 1.4%, despite progressive management that recently hiked payouts by 15.2%.I’d prefer a more reasonable valuation, but this stock is in demand right now.

first_img Referee Craig Evans had more than the game to worry about, during the New Zealand Sevens Tournament (Photo by Kevin Barnes – CameraSport via Getty Images) The New Zealand Sevens Tournament was being held in Hamilton for the first time in 18 years after relocating from Wellington, and it was a pulsating tournament with Fiji emerging as the victors against South Africa in the final.The home team, New Zealand, fell at the semi-final stage to the eventual winners, and lost out to Australia in the bronze medal match. Rugby referees have enough to deal with, controlling the match and making sure the rules of the game are enforced. But it appears there is another concern to worry about: attacks at speed from below knee height.Professional referee Craig Evans was minding his own business during the New Zealand Rugby Sevens Tournament in Hamilton, when a remote controlled car, of the type that normally carry kicking tees, veered towards him and drove straight into his leg.Evans took the collision well, barely flinching and joking later in a tweet that the Rugby Sevens organising body may get an injury at work claim coming their way soon.It’s unlikely that World Rugby has the lawyers on standby, but it was a great response to a really funny moment.It is a good thing this wasn’t football, otherwise he probably would have collapsed to the turf, clutching his leg, never to referee again. South Africa now top the overall standings in the World Sevens Series, with New Zealand in second and Fiji third. England are the best-placed of the European nations, in sixth position.Don’t forget to follow Rugby World on Twitter and Facebook.

He was on his way to meet a source when he was attacked by three armed and masked men. He was tied up, threatened and beaten, then forced to sign a “confession” that he had gone there with the intention of raping an under-age girl. The attackers made a recording of the forced confession then let him go, telling him his life was at stake.After the attack, Castaño lodged a complaint with the state prosecutor’s office in Medellín, the capital of Antioquia department, and asked the government for protection. The journalist had previously been threatened when he was head of the trade union of the Colombian National University and was forced into exile for nine years in 1987. In 2011, he was threatened again after he made a documentary about disputes over mining activities. He says is now worried for his family. “Reporters Without Borders urges the National Protection Unit to ensure Oscar Castaño Valencia and his family are given effective protection as soon as possible,” said Claire San Filippo, head of the organization’s Americas desk. “The government must ensure that attacks on journalists do not go unpunished.”The combos are extremely violent and well known to the elite GAULA police units that specialize in cases of abduction and extortion. A GAULA unit carried out a raid in the area where Castaño was attacked a few days later. There has been an increase in threats against journalists in Colombia since the beginning of the year. The Office of the Defender of the Colombian People, a national body created to promote human rights, says it has recorded twice as many reports of threats against journalists this year compared with 2013.

first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago June 12, 2018 1,994 Views Evictions Webinar Explores PTFA Implications About Author: David Wharton  Print This Post President Donald Trump recently signed Senate Bill 2155, the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act, into law. Among other changes designed to streamline or modify some elements of the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, the bill also restores regulations related to the Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act (PTFA). That has implications servicers need to consider, and now the Legal League 100 will present a complimentary webinar exploring the topic.Entitled “Evictions: Regulatory and Litigation Update,” this latest installment of the Legal League 100 Webinar Series kicks off at 2 p.m. CT, on Wednesday, June 13. The webinar will feature presentations from representatives of two different League member firms: Jenna Baum, Partner, McCalla Raymer Leibert Pierce, and Gregory Sanda, Associate Attorney, Schiller, Knapp, Lefkowitz & Hertzel, LLP.You can click here to register for the webinar.Originally introduced in 2009, the PTFA “contained protections intended to ensure that tenants facing eviction from a foreclosed property would have adequate time to find alternative housing.” The PTFA expired on December 31, 2014. In the years since, some states have implemented their own versions of the law to continue those protections for tenants. Now, however, the PTFA is once again the law of the land.“In a nutshell, the resurrection of the Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act will give certain tenants in foreclosed properties significant additional rights beyond those they may have been provided by state laws,” Richard M. Nielson, Managing Shareholder, Reimer Law Co. told DS News.Nielson cited Kentucky, one of the states in which Reimer Law operates, as an example. Unlike some other states, Kentucky has not introduced their own version of the PTFA in the intervening years since it expired at the Federal level. As such, Nielson explained that the return of the PTFA could significantly increase the amount of time it takes to complete a post-foreclosure eviction. If that range was between 10-30 days before, for example, the reintroduced law could now require as much as 90 days’ notice to “bona fide” tenants before they can be evicted.To read the full text of S. 2155, the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act, click here.

The channel has primarily opposed a news report published by the Indian Express on January 25, where it is claimed that Republic TV’s Editor-in-Chief, Arnab Goswami bribed former BARC CEO Partho Dasgupta to raise their TRP rankings. In the legal notice, sent through Phoenix Legal, it is stated that Indian Express’ report titled “Arnab Goswami paid me $12,000 and Rs 40 lakh to fix ratings: Partho Dasgupta” is a vexatious campaign to tarnish the reputation of Republic TV and is intended to further Indian Express’ own commercial and corporate interests through sensationalism. The notice states, “The very headline of your news report would mislead any reader into wrongly believing that, as a matter of fact, payments were made by our client, Mr. Goswami to Mr. Partho Dasgupta. Such a headline is squarely deliberate and mischievous.” It is stated that Indian Express deliberately omitted to mention in their report that the above statement was extracted by the Mumbai police from Mr. Partho Dasgupta under coercion and duress, is inadmissible in law, and has already been denied by Mr. Dasgupta himself. Reference is made to Section 25 of the Indian Evidence Act which lays down that a confession made to a police-officer shall never be proved as against a person accused of any offence and under Section 26 it is clear that it is only when a confession is made in the immediate presence of a Magistrate that it may be considered valid. Overt denial of manipulation of data to benefit Republic in Partho Dasgupta’s bail application The notice states that in the Bail application filed by Mr. Dasgupta on 6 January 2021 before the Sessions Court, Mumbai, it is clearly stated that there was no manipulation of TRP by the Republic Media Network. Inter alia, the notice draws attention to several allegations made by Dasgupta’s family and his subsequent transfer to JJ Hospital from Taloja Jail, indicating that the alleged confession was made under duress and custodial torture. Contempt of Court It is further pointed out that investigation of the matter is underway and it is also pending consideration before the Bombay High Court, and that such biased reports are nothing but criminal contempt of Court. The notice states, “You have acted as a judge, jury and executioner in breach of all journalistic ethics and against the well-settled law. By concealing material facts, pronouncing our client guilty of TRP manipulation, even though the matter is pending investigation and is also sub judice, your assertions amount to criminal contempt of court. xxx The news report is a vile, hateful, malicious attempt by you and part of a severely prejudicial campaign engineered and implemented by the Indian Express aimed at attempting to irreparably destroy their (Republic TV’s) reputation as well as the reputation of the Republic Media network.” Republic TV has therefore demanded Indian Express to cease from publishing such defamatory reports against them. It has also sought an unconditional public apology and issue a corrigendum clarifying the correct facts.Background The Mumbai Police had claimed that Partho Dasgupta had in alleged connivance with another ex-senior BARC official and Republic TV Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami, manipulated the television rating points (TRP) of Republic TV and its Hindi arm. The Crime Branch has charged him under sections 409(criminal breach of trust by a public servant), 420 (cheating) of the IPC. Meanwhile, the Bombay High Court is seized with a petition filed by Republic TV challenging the investigation against it.Click Here To Download NoticeRead NoticeSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

And, she has witnesses. Hundreds of them.Pat Rodgers sat in the lobby of Sisters Restaurant Thursday, making an American flag in the fashion of Betsy Ross. Book Nook to reopen But Rodgers is no copycat.Betsy Ross’ flag had 13 stars and 13 stripes to honor the 13 original colonies.“There were 13 colonies when she made her flag so hers had 13 stars and 13 stripes,” Rogers said as she worked. “Well, now we’ve got 50 states so we need a flag with 50 stars and 50 stripes.”And, so the Pat Rodgers’ flag was fashioned. Sponsored Content Published 6:46 pm Thursday, July 3, 2014 Rodgers and her sister, Geraldine Golden, own and operate the popular Sisters Restaurant. The Sisters are known for and wide for their great food and their amusing antics. So, folks weren’t surprised when they walked into Sisters on Thursday and found Betsy Ross a.k.a. Pat Rodgers greeting folks.“I had this dress made especially for today,” Rodgers said, adding that she would have made the dress herself had she not been busy making the 50 stars and stripes flag. “Dean said if I put my glasses on the end of my nose, I’ll look like Betsy Ross. I don’t know about that, but I do look real patriotic in this dress.”Rodgers laughingly teased the diners that they could have their pictures taken with Betsy Ross for a dollar.“For five dollars, she’ll kiss you,” she said, laughing. “No, really, we just like to get all dressed up on holidays and surprise our customers. They always get a kick out of the crazy things we do.”Rodgers said Sisters Restaurant is more than a place to eat.“Everybody that comes here is family,” she said. “That’s why we can act crazy and not get locked up.” In June 1776, Betsy Ross was a widow struggling to run her own upholstery business. As an upholsterer, Betsy Ross made flags. And, it was for that reason that General George Washington walked into her shop that fateful day.The General showed Betsy Ross a six-pointed star, which he suggested as the star design for the first American flag. Betsy Ross had another idea. She picked up the scissors and cut a five-pointed star in a single snip.That’s the short story of how Betsy Ross was entrusted with making the nation’s first flag. And, it may not be the true story. If fact, there is a question as to whether Betsy Ross even made the first American flag.

The second week is the Creative Drama Camp for ages 4-13. “We’ll have 100-plus campers for the intensives,” Lee-Averett said. “So, our total number of campers this summer will be between 260 and 275.“Many parents have said they wish their kids could have these types of experiences at school – to have opportunities to be fully expressive with their voices, their bodies and their imaginations. Schools are not doing enough of this, parents say.”Organized and structured play are most often the rule of thumb in today’s world, leaving few opportunities for free play where kids are encouraged to use their imaginations and their creativity, Lee-Averett said.“At Summer Spotlight Camp, we provide them with these opportunities and, along the way, they develop a sense of community. They take care of each other; they learn from each other and support each. We have such a good time and it shows when they take the stage for the showcase.” Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Skip Sponsored Content Troy Kiwanis Club donates to Summer Spotlight Camp Latest Stories Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?
