Sales for 2010 also jumped at the UK’s fourth largest insurer, climbing 28 per cent to £1.8bn from £1.4bn in 2009. Chief executive Tim Breedon said the company was confident about its growth prospects, citing rising customer demand in the UK and a business model and product mix suited to the current economic and demographic environment. “Our balance sheet is strong, each of our business divisions is profitable and cash-generative, and we are delivering excellent results across the group,” he said. The insurer also renewed its seven-year partnership with Sainsbury’s Finance yesterday, which will see the supermarket chain’s financial outlets continue to sell L&G life cover products.Despite the upbeat outlook, shares in L&G fell more than two per cent in early trading, before recovering slightly to close 0.4 per cent down at 110.7p. The stock is up 12 per cent since the start of the year, outperforming a 1.6 per cent rise in the Stoxx 600 European insurance index.Financial Services Authority chairman Adair Turner cast a shadow over the insurance industry in his prudential risk outlook yesterday, claiming that though well capitalised, the industry was exposed to balance sheet stress from both a rise in claims and low investment returns.

Rugby Rant: Don’t scrap the Aviva Premiership salary cap!

first_img TAGS: Saracens Sixteen years on, the salary cap is rising in line with commercial revenues and that’s the basis of a healthy, sustainable business.This Rant first appeared in the March edition of Rugby World – but what do you think about this issue? If Saracens’ Ed Griffiths was testing the water when he suggested abolishing the salary cap in England, he got badly scalded. Coaches and fellow CEOs were quick to shoot down his proposal.There are lots of reasons why many pro sports leagues, from America’s NFL to English county cricket, employ a cap. They want a level playing field where every team is competitive, and tactical skills can override the size of a benefactor’s wallet.Even with the stranded London Welsh, the Aviva Premiership can claim to be the most competitive league in the world, with 44% of games decided by a single score (or drawn). The result is a steady rise in attendances and record TV viewing figures – proof that English rugby has got it right.Griffiths’s contention that English clubs will lose out on star names to French rugby is partially true. But the provision of the ‘marquee player’ clause – which excludes the highest earner from the cap – permits any Premiership club to sign a Dan Carter. And next season clubs can have two marquee players, so you can have Carter and Kieran Read!Yet this misses the point, because overdo the number of foreign players and you undermine the national team. France, who have some 250 foreigners in their Top 14, struggle to get the balance right and are paying the consequences at Test level. In contrast, the number of England-qualified players in the Premiership passed 70% last season and young players have been granted the game time needed to fast-track their development. England have won back-to-back Junior World Cups partly because of such exposure.Rugby union has only been professional for 20 years and in the early days some clubs spent beyond their means, or saw a ‘sugar daddy’ withdraw. The incentive to avoid the financial strife encountered by Richmond, London Scottish et al lay behind the creation of a cap in 1999.center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The haves and have-nots: Sarries versus London Welsh last_img read more

Minimalist House / 85 Design

first_img Year:  CopyHouses•Hòa Xuân, Vietnam ArchDaily Vietnam Manufacturers: Antcons, Moc Lang, The RainClient:Mr. Long/ Mrs. BayArchitect:To Huu Dung, Tran Thi Anh NguyetCity:Hòa XuânCountry:VietnamMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!© To Huu DungText description provided by the architects. On the morning of the end of 2017, I suddenly received a phone call from a Vietnamese girl in Australia. She is a landscape architect and is currently working for a large Australian landscape design company. She shared that her parents in Vietnam were planning to build a new house for them and her brother to live. Since her parents have been building the house many times but they have never felt satisfactory, this time she wanted to find a good design consultant to design a new home that suits the needs to use and is aesthetically pleasing. Through careful study, she came to us, she liked the way we did through our projects posted on ArchDaily. We exchanged a lot of ideas and had many common points: Everything is really simple, clean, with more areas for green space.Save this picture!ElevationIn Vietnam, the planning of the residential area is mostly divided into 5mx20m. Because of the relatively small area, most investors rarely sacrifice the space used for trees and light. But for us, those green spaces are almost mandatory to put on design in all projects. We understand that: Light and trees are extremely important to each of us. Despite the small area, we always try to persuade the investors to apply to their project. In this project, we designed quite simple.Save this picture!© To Huu Dung1st floor: The first space before entering the house is a welcoming hall and also a small motorbike garage, after the door is the living room, and then the kitchen and dining room. One bedroom is located at the end and is separated from the kitchen and dining room by a small garden. This garden has created the wind and light for all space of the 1st floor and is also the space for reading books and relaxing of the family.Save this picture!© To Huu Dung2nd floor: We spend most of the space on the 2nd floor as the common living area, reading room, and worship room. In Vietnamese culture, these spaces are extremely important. The remaining area is one bedroom and toilet. All these spaces are directed towards the green space of the small garden between the house.Save this picture!Section 1In the design and construction process, the most difficult for us and her is to convince her father. Her father is quite conservative with views of old building thinking, while our ideas are quite new to him. We had to work together to persuade him many issues during the construction process. Many times, he was very upset because, in his view, we were designers but interfered so much in the house he would later be staying with. However, we remained persistent in persuading and calming his stress. And as far as the end of the project, when the house began to show, as he shared: he gradually got a different view of the project as well as about us. He said there were some things he was not satisfied but if he continued to build another house later, he would still find us.Save this picture!© To Huu DungWhen completing this project, she was from Australia to Vietnam to be able to, by herself, choose the furniture as well as build the indoor plants. Because her expertise is the landscape architect, so it can say that: She is also an important contributor to this project. We feel very pleased about the cooperation as well as the results of this project.Save this picture!© To Huu DungProject gallerySee allShow lessCloud, Go High / Wutopia LabSelected ProjectsYunmen Mountain All-Seasons Ski Resort / ATAH + MADA s.p.a.m.Selected Projects Share Minimalist House / 85 DesignSave this projectSaveMinimalist House / 85 Design Houses CopyAbout this office85 DesignOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHòa XuânVietnamPublished on August 02, 2018Cite: “Minimalist House / 85 Design” 01 Aug 2018.

New Study Shows Grain Exports Offered $55.5 Billion in Economic Output

first_img SHARE New Study Shows Grain Exports Offered $55.5 Billion in Economic Output Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articleWHO Takes a Strong Stand Against Antibiotics in Animals Hoosier Ag Today SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – Nov 7, 2017 Exports of U.S. feed grains and related products provide critical support across the U.S. economy, offering billions in economic direct and indirect economic benefits to farmers, rural communities and the nation as a whole.New research commissioned by the U.S. Grains Council (USGC) and the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) quantified these benefits, showing that U.S. feed grain and grain products exports were worth $18.9 billion in 2015 and supported $55.5 billion in economic output. These exports were linked directly or indirectly to nearly 262,000 jobs.Furthermore, if exports were halted, the analysis indicated that more than 46,000 jobs and $2.6 billion in GDP would be adversely impacted at the farm, ethanol production and meat production levels before accounting for losses in linked industries.“International markets represent demand that would not exist elsewhere,” said Deb Keller, USGC chairman and a farmer from Iowa. “This research highlights the important economic benefits of exports that our U.S. economy depends upon to subsist.”Informa Economics conducted the study, which examined the economic contributions to each state and 52 congressional districts from exports of corn, barley, sorghum, ethanol, distiller’s dried grains with solubles (DDGS), corn gluten feed and meal as well as the corn equivalent of meat on the U.S. economy.The study extended analysis to determine the importance of exports across the broader U.S. economy. Total impact of grain and grain products exported in 2015 indirectly supported more than 261,000 jobs across the United States and $21 billion in gross domestic product (GDP).Breaking down the numbers, these results showed every $1 of grain exports generated supported an additional $2.19 in business sales. And every job directly created by the export of grain and grain products supported an additional 4.7 jobs in the United States.These indirect and induced business activities extend well beyond the agricultural industry, including to the wholesale trade, real estate, oil and natural gas extraction to service sectors including restaurants, hospitals and employment services industries.“The value of exports to the U.S. economy extends far beyond our fields and farms,” said NCGA President and North Dakota farmer Kevin Skunes. “By analyzing the impacts to individual states and congressional districts, constituents and legislators alike can better understand how their local communities benefit from and depend on exports.”View the full report here.An interactive map of the study results is hereSource: NCGA Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News New Study Shows Grain Exports Offered $55.5 Billion in Economic Output Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Hundreds of journalists protest at appointments of new media bosses

first_img Forum on Information and Democracy 250 recommendations on how to stop “infodemics” Receive email alerts TunisiaMiddle East – North Africa News News RSF_en More than 300 journalists and civil society members demonstrated yesterday outside the government headquarters in the Tunis Casbah to condemn police violence and call for the recognition of freedom of expression as a basic right.The demonstration, in response to an appeal by the Tunisian journalists’ union, was also aimed at protesting against the recent appointment of new bosses of state media outlets.A counter-demonstration was organized by supporters of the Islamist party Ennahda, which supports the actions of Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali’s government.“At a time when the Ennahda party is accusing the media of being out of step with the aspirations of the people, we wonder about the real reasons for these appointments,” Reporters Without Borders said.“The links those chosen for key posts have with the former Ben Ali regime do not favour a break with the old media set-up that was in thrall to political authorities and casts doubt on the present leadership’s commitment to taking control of these media organizations.“During the Ben Ali era, the authorities never openly intervened in the appointment of editors and news directors. “The audio-visual communication authority HAICA, whose creation was provided for in a decree promulgated on 2 November, should be responsible for nominating candidates to head public media organizations to the prime minister. In this case, the prime minister appointed the media bosses himself on the pretext that the posts were vacant.“However, in a statement issued three days ago, Hamadi Jebali, undertook not to make any decisions affecting the media without consulting the parties concerned.“Yesterday, a delegation from the National Union of Tunisian Journalists (SNJT) met the prime minister, as well as Abderrazak Kilani, minister in charge of relations with the Constituent Assembly, and Ridha Kazdaghli, the prime minister’s head of communications.“The president of the SNJT, Nejiba Hamrouni, described the appointments as “anarchic”. Kamel Laabidi, head of the National Committee of Information and Communication Reform (INRIC), regretted that he was not consulted about the appointments. The committee, set up after Tunisia’s revolution, expressed “surprise at the appointments announced.”The prime minister said there was a need for urgency since several top posts, such as the heads of the state news agency TAP, the state newspaper publishing arm SNIPE and the Tunisian National Television establishment, were vacant and this explained the need to move quickly on new management appointments. He gave an assurance that those of editors and news directors would be cancelled and, in future, these posts will be filled by elections among media staff. The fact remains that among the bosses recently appointed, there are figures from the previous regime, such as Mohamed Néjib Ouerghi, who served as editor and publisher of the newspaper Le Renouveau, organ of the Constitutional Democratic Rally (RCD) party from 2003 to 2010, then as head of the TAP news agency from 2010 until his appointment last week as president and chief executive of the new publishing arm SNIPE and director of its newspapers La Presse and Essahafa.Mohamed Taïeb Youssefi, who worked as a government adviser from 1990 until he was promoted to head the prime minister’s office last February, was named president and chief executive of the TAP news agency. The agency’s journalists organized a sit-in yesterday in front of its offices in protest against his appointment.Adnene Khedr, former head of the main television station, was appointed president and chief executive of the Tunisian Television Establishment.
