first_imgWednesday 27 October 2010 8:20 pm COCA-COLA staff are to protest against restructuring plans which they say will lead to lower pay and put jobs at risk. Members of the Unite union at seven plants across the UK are threatening to walk out. Unite says the company is using the economic climate to force through “attacks on jobs and pay”.But the firm said it is seeking a “consistent way of working” across its UK, Belgian, Dutch and French plants and is acting fairly. whatsapp Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

Man Group to axe up to 200 jobs next year

first_img MAN Group will axe up to 200 jobs over the next year, according to sources close to the firm.The world’s largest listed hedge fund has already identified $50m (£32m) of cost savings and a company spokesman told City A.M. it was inevitable some of this would be achieved by reducing headcount.However, he declined to confirm how many jobs could be lost through the streamlining operation.City sources say at least 100 full time staff are likely to lose their jobs, with other losses coming through cutting back on the number of contractors working for the firm.The total will come to around 10 per cent of Man Group’s 1,800 headcount. The reductions will be phased over the next six months, according to sources close to the firm. More information is expected to be released when the group releases its results next Thursday.Man Group remains a potential bid target, with Bank of New York Mellon seen as a possible suitor. Its funds under management have fallen from $79.5bn in 2008 to just $39bn in March.Last month it also clocked up an eighth consecutive quarter of net withdrawals, as an improved performance from its flagship AHL fund failed to stem the outflow of private client money. It recorded net outflows of $600m in the three months to the end of September, though the rate of withdrawals slowed from the first quarter.

The partnership with Carphone Warehouse was seen by analysts as an experiment with its distribution model. The original Nexus was tied to an exclusive deal with Vodafone in the UK.

Insurer QBE faces $175m NZ quake lossa

first_img AUSTRALIA’S biggest insurer, QBE Insurance, said yesterday its profits slipped 17 per cent in 2010 after a spate of catastrophes hit the region.Net profit slipped to $1.28bn (£787m) from $1.53bn in 2009, despite premium income growth of 21 per cent to $13.6bn from $11.2bn in 2009, following floods that devastated Australia as well as Chilean and New Zealand earthquakes.QBE said its exposure to the earthquake that hit Christchurch last week could be as high as $175m including reinsurance costs – far higher than Australian insurers IAG and Suncorp, which have said losses should be capped at $40-45m due to reinsurance.However, its underwriting profit – profit after claims and expenses – rose 19 per cent to $1.17bn and all divisions delivered return on equity of higher than 15 per cent. And chief executive Frank O’Halloran said both profitability and premium income should improve in 2011, with net earned premiums expected to grow by 22-25 per cent.O’Halloran added that the disasters to hit Australia and New Zealand in recent months are likely to cause premium rises as local insurers find buying reinsurance for their coverage becomes more difficult.

Superbet hires Shaw to lead online operations

first_img Former Paddy Power Betfair executive Adam Shaw has been unveiled as the new managing director of international online operations at Superbet. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Tags: Online Gambling Former Paddy Power Betfair executive Adam Shaw has been unveiled as the new managing director of international online operations at Superbet.Shaw will be responsible for overseeing online development outside the operator’s home market, Romania.Shaw left his most recent full-time role, as Paddy Power Betfair’s international director, in October. Before then he served as the operator’s head of international commercial operations.He also previously worked in a variety of positions at Betfair over a three-and-a-half-year period before its merger with Paddy Power.Shaw will report to Superbet’s chief digital officer, Marcello Magaletti, who joined the operator last autumn.Shaw’s arrival comes at a pivotal time for Superbet, which carried out a two-month redundancy process in Gibraltar in August just a year after the operator announced plans to double its headcount in the jurisdiction.The operator also announced last year that it would roll out online and mobile betting services in Poland in 2019, building on a land-based presence in the country.Several operators are targeting Poland, with Regulus Partners having said last week that betting turnover in the country attributable to domestically-licensed operators grew by 55% year-on-year to PLZ5.1bn (£1bn/€1.2bn/$1.4bn) in 2018.Poland began blacklisting unlicensed gambling companies in July 2017 as part of a new legal structure in the country. The legislation also introduced a licensing structure and a 12% turnover tax on companies operating in Poland.Regulus added that operators with a domestic licence in Poland accounted for almost half of the gambling-related revenue generated in the country last year – up from 10% in 2015.

Paul James knockout punch on Marius Tincu

first_imgMonday Oct 20, 2008 Paul James knockout punch on Marius Tincu The Ospreys and Perpignan met at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday for what turned out to be a highly uninspiring game of Heineken Cup rugby. The star studded home team managed to win 15-9, but it was anything but impressive.The only real talking point of the match, besides the dull factor, would be the 30th minute punch from Ospreys prop Paul James. The front rower was lucky to stay on the field after flooring Romanian hooker Marius Tincu with a swinging forearm/punch that looked to have landed square in the jaw.Neither Wayne Barnes, nor either one of his assistant refereesspotted the incident, therefore James got away with it, while Tincu lay dazed on the turf.Ospreys coach Sean Holley has since voiced his concern regarding marks around the eyes of some of his players. When asked directly if his players had been gouged though, his response was more guarded.I am not saying it is eye-gouging, but it is something that has increased in the game in the last year or so.”Something clearly provoked the Ospreys prop. Its difficult to see on the video, but the reality of it is that he will no doubt be cited and suspended within the next day or so.

Jean De Villiers injury might rule him out of Rugby World Cup 2015

first_imgTuesday Dec 2, 2014 Jean De Villiers injury might rule him out of Rugby World Cup 2015 Springbok captain Jean De Villiers is set to be out of rugby for at least eight months following the knee injury suffered during South Africa’s 12-6 loss to Wales on Saturday. At this stage it looks unlikely that he’ll be fit in time for the World Cup.ADVERTISEMENTDe Villiers twisted his knee under in a ruck 17 minutes into the second half in Cardiff. His cries of pain could be heard on the live feed, and just as commentator Jonathan Davies said that there won’t be replays because of the ugly nature of the injury, one was shown.The 33-year-old centre went in for the turnover, but was cleared out and as Toby Faletau attempted to twist and move him, the Welsh number eight’s weight bent De Villiers’ leg in the wrong direction.He was actually well set but it’s a prime example of the risks involved in going in for a turnover in that body position. His loss was massive for the Springboks on the day, as they usually finish well but sorely lacked his leadership in those final twenty minutes.He will require surgery on the left knee, with all eyes on the Rugby World Cup next year. He dislocated his kneecap and reportedly tore his hamstring at the same time too, so it’s going to be a long year of hard work ahead.A statement on Monday afternoon said that the scans revealed significant ligament damage to the knee, so he will require a surgical reconstruction of the knee.UPDATE 04/12/2014: De Villiers underwent a successful operation in Stellenbosch earlier today. He had a full reconstruction of the anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments of his left knee, with an artificial graft as well as a repair of the medial collateral ligament.ADVERTISEMENT“The procedure went well, but at this stage it is difficult to determine an exact return to play time-frame,” said team doctor Craig Roberts. “The use of an artificial graft should speed up his rehabilitation and hopefully increase his chances of making a successful return to the playing field.”De Villiers said: “I would like to thank every medical practitioner involved in my injury, from Saturday when it happened until today’s operation.“My focus will now be on the arrival of our third child in the coming days. Thereafter it will be about recovering as soon as possible so I can start with my rehabilitation. I still have my sights set on going to next year’s Rugby World Cup and will do everything in my power to get to England.“I would also like to thank everyone for the well-wishes and support in the last week, it means a lot to me and my family and we really appreciate every message.”ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Rep. Chu, Sen. Booker Introduce DIPLOMA Act

first_imgGovernment Rep. Chu, Sen. Booker Introduce DIPLOMA Act Published on Thursday, March 5, 2020 | 5:06 pm First Heatwave Expected Next Week Top of the News Community News Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * Make a comment U.S. Representative Judy Chu (D-CA) and U.S. Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) today introduced the Developing Innovative Partnerships and Learning Opportunities that Motivate Achievement (DIPLOMA) Act, which would provide federal support for partnerships between public schools and community organizations designed to meet student’s holistic needs beyond the classroom, such as their housing, nutrition, safety, and health care needs. The DIPLOMA Act would help schools become community centers, offering a full suite of social, health, and continuing education services to improve the lives of students and their families.In the last four decades the U.S. has plunged from first in the world in high school and college graduation rates to 21st and 14th respectively. A driving force behind this fall is increasing drop-out rates, which is caused in part by students not always having their holistic needs met by their school and community. The DIPLOMA ACT aims to address those needs, creating a more comprehensive learning experience. A number of studies have shown that when these needs are met, students are more likely to succeed.“As a former teacher, I know that a good education is the best path to future success,” said Rep. Chu. “But a child’s needs go beyond the classroom. For too many students, hunger, problems at home, disabilities, or other obstacles hold them back. That’s why I’m proud to be reintroducing this bill with Senator Booker to support community schools – schools that use partnerships to become full-service community centers for students and their families. Ensuring our students are as successful as possible means ensuring they have the services and support they need. Professionals, universities, non-profits and more have so much to offer students and parents alike, but often the resources are not there to bring them together. This bill not only encourages those partnerships, but provides the grant funding necessary to make them successful.”“In order for our children to be successful academically, we need to ensure they are in environments where they are fully supported by their whole communities,” Booker said. “This legislation will enable schools to provide essential support services, such as nutrition programs, healthcare, and counseling to students. By turning schools into community hubs we can empower students and better prepare them for academic success and life after graduation.”The DIPLOMA ACT would provide federal grants to states, which would award subgrants to local partnerships, in which a school works with a community partner. An eligible community partner can be any one of a number of local institutions, such as local governments, institutions of higher education, nonprofits, businesses, or foundations. The grants could be used for a number of services including, but not limited to:• Early childhood education, reading programs, child care, home visiting, and parental education• Tutoring, afterschool programs, and summer learning• Services for students with disabilities• Health services including primary care, speech and hearing, nutrition, and mental health• Leadership development and civic learning, job training, career counseling, and college preparation• Parent and adult educationThe DIPLOMA Act is endorsed by the Institute for Educational Leadership (IEL), the National Education Association (NEA), and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT).“Currently, the significant demand across the country for community schools far outpaces the ability of local leaders to fund them with their own dollars,” said Dr. Johan Uvin, President of the Institute for Educational Leadership (IEL). “The DIPLOMA Act is an innovative bill that would help grow community schools at the same time it would strengthen state-level support for school-community partnerships. This bill would mobilize local and state leaders to practice cross-sector collaboration through the development of a comprehensive child and youth strategy and encourage more places to implement the community school strategy as a vehicle for equity. Here at IEL, we are committed to helping expand community schools to any community-and particularly the most opportunity-constrained communities- that want to implement it to unite school, family and community for young people’s success. We are grateful to Representative Chu and Senator Booker for helping us to get there faster with this excellent bill.” Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPasadena Water and PowerPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Limerick protest sounds death knell for Irish Water

first_imgAdvertisement by Alan [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Cllr Maurice Quinlivan with members of Sinn Fein marching in last weekend’s anti-water charges protest in the city.(Pic: Munster Images)“NOT a penny Kenny” was the clear message from the 3,000 people who took to the street of Limerick last weekend to protest over the imposition of water charges.Organised by the Anti Austerity Alliance, the ‘No Means No — We’re Still Not Paying’ campaign was one of a series of well attended protests held around the country on Saturday.AAA representative Cian Prendiville believes the Government are now on the back foot. The City North councillor claims the “establishment” completely underestimated the anger that exists in society after years of “brutal austerity” and are now scrabbling about trying to buy people off with their concessions.“The potential to build a new political alternative exists with working class communities organising themselves from below. We can defeat this Government and that power can be used to shape and build a society that is run in the interests of the 99 per cent instead of the dictatorship of the one per cent that currently exists,” he said.Dublin West Socialist TD Joe Higgins, who joined the Limerick protest, insisted that the strength of the continuing demonstrations proved that people were not falling for the Government’s “political trickery”. He predicted that the anti-water charges campaign would continue until the charges are abolished.Sinn Féin councillor Maurice Quinlivan was of the opinion that people are “fed up” and want a general election. He also claimed the Government are ignoring the people as they press ahead with the introduction of water charges.“People didn’t buy into the so-called concessions and they remain opposed and want the charges scrapped. Instead of listening to the people, government ministers including the Taoiseach have hid behind spin, scare and smear,” the City North councillor insisted.“This is a government that has lost the support of the people. That was crystal clear to me from those I spoke with at Saturday’s rally and at other local demonstrations across Limerick County. This is a government that is frightened of the will of the people,” he said.Sounding the death knell for Irish Water, a hearse also joined the Limerick protest last weekend carrying damning slogans like “Stop the Death Tax” and “Bye bye Fine Gael — You won’t be missed”.Organisers also called for as many people as possible to attend the national rally against the charges in Dublin on Wednesday, December 10.
