Deloitte chief John Connolly was shot down for arguing the firms played no part in the downfall of companies including RBS, which his firm audited.“That seems to me to be extraordinarily self-satisfied in light of what we know to be the case,” said Nigel Lawson, a former finance minister.Auditors are required to state whether a company can last another year, but Lawson said the firms were using loopholes to sign off banks that were “on thin ice”.

South east hardest hit in recession

first_imgWednesday 8 December 2010 8:18 pm South east hardest hit in recession KCS-content Share Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Tags: NULL whatsapp LONDON bore the biggest brunt of the recession last year, official data revealed yesterday.The capital’s economy contracted by 2.6 per cent in 2009, after growing by 3.9 per cent the year before. The drop was the largest for all UK regions.And London lost 192,000 jobs during the year, the highest number in the country. Most jobs were lost in business, finance and insurance, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).However, the city still leads the country in terms of wealth creation. London’s gross value added (GVA) per head, which measures individual contribution to the economy, was £34,200 – still 71.2 per cent above the UK average, despite the recession.And 28.7 per cent of the country’s employees work in London and the south east, the report showed.For the first time since the data series began in 1989, every region saw a fall in GVA, and employment was down in all regions except the south west.The total number of employees in Great Britain for 2009 was 26.2m, down by 783,000 – 2.9 per cent – on the previous year. The south east – excluding London – suffered a 3.5 per cent fall in its overall GVA, which is used as an estimate of economic activity.Yet economists expect a turnaround in the data as the recovery gains strength. In 2009 the economy contracted by five per cent, yet the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) has forecasted 1.8 per cent growth for this year, and 2.1 per cent next year.And employment is projected to grow by 1.1m by 2015, according to the OBR’s forecasts.

Stock market crash: These UK shares have skyrocketed in 2020! I’d buy them in an ISA today

first_img Image source: Getty Images. Click here to claim your free copy of this special investing report now! Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Stock market crash: These UK shares have skyrocketed in 2020! I’d buy them in an ISA today 2020 hasn’t all been doom and gloom for UK shares. Broader market confidence might still be in the gutter following the stock market crash of late February and early March. But a decent number of UK shares have enjoyed electrifying price growth despite the social, economic, and geopolitical upheaval caused by Covid-19.But that’s not to say that they need to pull up the drawbridge entirely. Investors in UK shares can protect themselves by investing in companies with rock-solid balance sheets. They can also buy firms with ‘economic moats’ (in other words, advantages over their competition) to help them continue growing profits. It’s a good idea to buy stocks that operate in defensive sectors or even companies that have seen increased business following the Covid-19 outbreak. This can include UK shares involved in e-commerce, or software providers that help people to work from home.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…2 FTSE 100 shares I’d buy todayMany firms that fall into one or more of these categories have seen their share prices fly in the year to date. Here are a couple that I’d buy for my own Stocks and Shares ISA today:Bunzl surged almost 20% in 2020, thanks in part to news that Covid-19 has fuelled demand for its medical and hygiene products. As an owner of this UK share myself I’m not surprised by this strength. I bought this FTSE 100 firm because of the broad range of essential products and services it provides. It’s a quality that provides excellent earnings visibility whatever the state of the global economy, meaning Bunzl is a great buy for even the most nervous investors. The business is resuming acquisition activity, too, in a further boost to its profits outlook. Bunzl doesn’t come cheap but I reckon its forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 20 times is well deserved.I’d also buy Flutter Entertainment despite its high valuation, in this case a forward P/E ratio of 34 times. This particular UK share commands a premium because it’s a great way to ride the electrifying growth of online gambling. The FTSE 100 gambling giant saw revenues soar 22% in the first half, driven in part by customers staying at home and playing its gaming products. Flutter’s share price is up 37% so far in 2020 and I expect it to keep on surging. I’m particularly encouraged by the huge sales potential of its expansion in the gigantic North American marketplace.More UK shares to get rich withThese UK shares are just a taster of the high-quality stocks that I’d buy today.

The Synairgen share price: here’s why I’d buy and hold this stock

The Synairgen share price: here’s why I’d buy and hold this stock Image source: Getty Images I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.

The Synairgen (LSE: SNG) share price delivered a great return on investment last year. The shares started the year at 6.34p each and ended it at 153p. The spike in price was caused by the firm’s development of a Covid-19 treatment called SNG001 and its early success. It received positive results from its phase 2 study that started in March 2020.So far this year, Synairgen shares are up 3.7% and the 12-month return is around 838%. That said, at early Tuesday afternoon’s price of just under 157p, the stock is well below its record level of 246p from August 2020. But maybe that’s an opportunity for me. I see Synairgen as a long-term ‘buy’ as it seems Covid is here to stay, despite vaccine success.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…Synairgen’s Covid-19 treatmentSynairgen was founded in 2003 by three professors who had a vision of creating a respiratory drug discovery-and-development company. But with a market capitalisation of just around £315m, it’s still a fairly small business. It has only three proprietary drug programs in its pipeline, with the most eye-catching being SNG001, its treatment for Covid-19 patients.The company clearly differs from giant pharmaceutical companies such as Pfizer, Moderna, and AstraZeneca. They’ve focused on developing a Covid-19 vaccine, by targeting coronavirus patients instead. Synairgen has recently commenced a phase 3 trial, which is being tested in approximately 20 countries and includes 610 Covid-19 patients. Vaccines aren’t 100% effective and not everyone will take them. So, I firmly believe that the treatment, if approved, could potentially reduce the risk of this pandemic in the long term.Synairgen share price outlookThat would be good news. But obviously, it’s a challenge to predict what the future holds for the company right now. The world is in wait-and-see mode, and the lasting impact of the coronavirus pandemic is not yet apparent in the global economy. But here’s why I think the business is a good buy right now — and it isn’t just because the Synairgen share price is far from its all-time high. Right now, there’s no effective treatment for Covid-19 patients. The world really needs a treatment for the disease as vaccines probably won’t eliminate it on their own.When I look ahead, this is a key reason why I believe Synairgen is a good stock to hold for the long term. Of course, even though the price has fallen recently, the spike in the Synairgen share price over the last year makes this stock risky. And the share price is likely to drop if the company fails to achieve its targets.But overall, I’m optimistic about the outlook. And even though Synairgen is seen as a ‘Covid-19 stock’, it’s not a one-trick pony. Its BioBank platform technology, for instance, is quite impressive. It should help Synairgen discover and develop novel therapies for respiratory diseases in general. Additionally, its pipeline portfolio includes inhaled interferon for asthma patients and a treatment for COPD.As such, I’m going to add the stock to my portfolio today, especially following the drop in the Synairgen share price in the past week.  Tom Chen has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

I can just imagine you engrossed in Mr. hognose until he up-chucked that toad, but even more you trying to make him eat it again. Oh yah! C Reply October 6, 2019 at 5:08 pm Reply October 8, 2019 at 3:14 pm NH October 6, 2019 at 5:03 am Oh my goodness!! That picture of you holding all those snakes is unbelievable to me! I guess there are many professions that encounter “snakes” of all sorts and the danger that comes with them.After working in the public school system with troubled kids, I saw this first hand. Most of the time, all you could do is pray for them.But then, prayer is more powerful than any snake that raises its head against us. God bless you, Chuck.I love the stories. Reply Richard charles towne NH, Well my dear,I thank you for the kind words m’ dear. You know the old saying about. “beauty being skin deep but ugly going all the way to the bone.” What a loving and merciful friend our Papa God is. Bless you and yours this day, Chaz I’ve had my share of playing with little green snakes, in the pocket – ready to scare school girls, and a variety of others. I caught a Hog Nosed snake one time, about two feet long, with a bulge in the middle. It was probably his dinner. When he saw me step in front of him, he spread his head like a Cobra and tried his best to make me think he was about to bite me BIG Time! I picked him up and he went limp, so I put him down. He at once turned over on his back and stuck out his tongue, like saying “see I’m dead.” So, I just turned him over again! Same thing, he rolled over again and stuck out his tongue! I turned him over again. This was just too much for old Hog Nose, he just up-chucked his dinner which was a small toad! At this point I felt sorry for him and tried to stop him again to offer the toad but he quickly disappeared. Diane Mike McFadden Such a handsome young man! Love the picture and loved the article even better. Thank you Charles! Keep em coming Don Young InspirationBy Charles Towne(I figured I would let Buddy rest a bit and give you something a tad different and tell you a bit about my very dull life as a little boy that refused to fully grow up.)I have been mauled by a lion, had an African spotted leopard blown off the top of me with a ten gauge shotgun, had an angry female African elephant chase me and she definitely had blood in her eyes. I have been kicked by a camel, chased by a ticked-off bull elk, been bitten three times by poisonous snakes, and otherwise been folded, spindled, and mutilated.   Such is the life of a zoo director.  Charles Towne dealing with a few friendly snakes…As a professional small boy, I have lived a most interesting life in regard to the animals that I have been exposed to. I wish I could have made a deal with my wild charges.  If that had been possible it would have gone something like this, “If you don’t hurt me, I won’t hurt you!”   It wouldn’t have done me much good though because they seem to have very short memories. Yeah, trying to make a deal with some critter that can bite your head off is sort of like making a deal with the devil, he isn’t going to honor it nohow, after all, it’s his character to do us as much harm as he possibly can.  Sometimes you hear of some dude that has made a deal with the devil, and for a short time it seems like everything is going in his favor, and then things seem to go awry, life turns sort of murky, and in the end they have the same problems that I do, but without the benefits.  In fact, sometimes their lives are much bleaker then yours and mine. When we are confronted with dangers in the natural world it seems only reasonable that we often come out on the short end of the stick.   Think about it.   Snakes bite, we expect them to bite, we would be surprised if they didn’t bite, I mean, it is after all their character, but the devil now?  In spite of the fact that he is a liar and that we know that he is a treacherous rascal and always telling us lies we seem to be surprised when he kicks us in the behind, but, like the vicious snake he is, it is after all his character.Live fullyLove openlyAnd make a difference, todayMy prayer for today,Dear God, what a friend you are.  I know that you are the only one that I can really trust.  I have repeatedly bought trouble upon myself by not being obedient to your word, and there are those times that I whimper and whine and blame you, and ask, “why did you do this to me, God?”  Or I have asked, “why did you allow me to do this to myself?” Knowing full well that any ugly consequence I bought on myself. Please Father, please oh merciful God, help me to be what you want me to be.  In Jesus’ beautiful name I ask it, Amen Charles Towne is first and foremost a Christian. An octogenarian, author, journalist, wildlife photographer, naturalist, caregiver, and survivor, his life has been and continues to be, a never-ending adventure filled with possibilities never imagined. He has adopted the philosophy that to Live fully, laugh uproariously, love passionately, and learn like there is no tomorrow, is a formula for a long and joy-filled life. Richard my friend, you are sooo right when you imply that the word frumpery is a good word! You are right about his deceitful ways being just evidence of his character. “Be for-warned you little smarmy humans, I will promise you anything to win your obedience… but, in the end I will lead you to destruction! destroy you, that is my purpose.” That, I believe we can agree on. Chaz Dear Diane, thank you for your understanding and compassion. Those of us that have worked in law enforcement can appreciate what you say. We definitely live in strange and precarious times, BUT, OUR GOD IS IN CONTROL. May our Papa God bless you and yours and may you have wisdom that can only come from God. Bless you my friend. Chaz I moved to Florida for the habitat, sunlight and people. The first two have never disappointed me. The last one occasionally do but I still pray for them. Lovely story Charlie Thanks as always.

Bless you and yours, Chas Reply Reply Reply Great article to read after talking to my 93 year young mom in Pennsylvania. I have relayed some stories this summer of relocating “friendly snakes” from the patio to the woods behind the house and she just can’t understand why anyone in their “right mind” could live where there are snakes. Little does she know that there are snakes in Pennsylvania – she has just never seen one. As Diane inferred it is easy to understand that the true species of a snake will bite if threatened but the human “snake in the grass” will give us all pause to decide if and when it will bite. Deception, hate and lies are tearing us apart but as the old saying goes “the devil is in the details”.

More to come! Chaz I read the first paragraphs of your story several times and and thought, I have also been married more than once! But enough frumpery (I have been reading Rex Stout!) A very nice retelling of ” the frog and the scorpion” and I myself am guilty, but why do we always act surprised when we know his nature from the get-go and he never wavers?

Unlike, humans, you don’t know what’s in their heart until you cross paths with them. In my career law enforcement professions I have crossed paths with Bullies; racists; sexists; abusers; homeless & many victims … you name it, in uniform or as an investigator, you know when you are called to a scene expect the worse. You prepare mentally for it. As an elected official, public service dealing with everyday people can be an eye opening; unknown how you will be received , it takes one time, to deal with disrespect, hostility and bullying, it shakes you to the core, realizing there are community people and business leaders can be so mean, prepares you for the next time. Yes, the Devil lives ready to feed the spirit of those who harbor fear & hate in their heart. Look around at the tone of our country; the division is so rampant; it’s concerning. Prayers are worth their weight if you truly believe in them for yourself. Thank you for your words of wisdom.

HSE accused of “reckless” attitude to renting

first_img Previous articleFill up with airNext articleLimerick gangs continue Youtube feud admin Email Advertisement Linkedin WhatsApp Twittercenter_img NewsLocal NewsHSE accused of “reckless” attitude to rentingBy admin – October 15, 2009 719 Facebook Print Lone parent with two children entitled to €745 a month, and €446 for single personTHE HSE’s Rental Supplement Scheme has been blamed for the increase in anti-social behaviour in residential areas across Limerick.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Adare Councillor James Collins, has called the authority’s attitude toward the scheme “reckless”, saying that they are completely disinterested in happenings, once tenants are placed in houses. He, along with other members of the committee, have now called for the eradication of the HSE’s rental scheme.Members of the county council, the oireachtas, and An Garda Siochana, were in attendance at the meeting of the Joint Policing Committee in County Hall, at which members of the HSE spoke about the provisions of their rental programme.Commissioning Officer of the health board, Eddie Murphy, told the gathering that those who applied to the HSE for Rent Allowance had their income assessed, and once this was below a certain level, accommodation was provided.“There are financial limits to the accommodation provided”, said Mr. Murphy. “For example, a couple or lone parent with two children is entitled to €745 a month, while a single person is permitted a maximum of €446 a month”.However, Mr. Murphy admitted that once accommodation was provided, the HSE have no further involvement with the agreement.“The HSE has no statutory power relating to the rent allowance. We are merely an agency who set up an agreement between a landlord and tenant. After 18 months, the Local Authority becomes responsible for the situation, under the Local Rental Scheme”.It was subsequently revealed by Mr Murphy that under the Data Protection Act, no names of landlords where tenants reside under this scheme, could be released. He added that there were misconceptions that anti-social behaviour was emanating from the scheme. He claimed that the Local Authority did not build enough houses, and that the HSE had been forced to pick up the tab with their rental scheme.Speaking to the Limerick Post, councillor James Collins said: “Its clear that the HSE would prefer if they were not involved. The legislation under the Residential Tenancy Act 2004, directs all problems to the landlord, but the landlords names cannot be revealed.“If they are registered under the Private Rental Tenancy Board, the names would be accessible; however the HSE claim that landlords are not obliged to register on the PRTB, so there is no one who can be made accountable for the behaviour of the tenants”.Councillor Collins added that neighbours of the minority of tenants under the scheme, who are trouble making, were afraid to contact Gardaí for fear that they would be targeted.He suggested that residential associations be set up so that reports could be made to the guards anonymously; however he was informed that this would not be possible as a name would be needed if a case was brought to court.Councillor Patrick O’Donovan stated that the situation was a “legislative dog’s dinner”, and that those who were involved in destructive behaviour were “dragging down the value” of neighbouring houses.He added that there was “no mechanism to deal with those who are striking fear into their neighbours, and have no regard for community”.Councillor Collins informed the Post that the HSE’s “ad-hoc housing policy” should be wound down, and that a joint city and county Limerick policy was to be created as the result of a 22 week study into the housing sector, that would be conducted by officials from both authorities.“A lot of time and effort will be put into creating a cohesive and integrated strategy on housing needs, to find out what the best mix will be for all involved.“Limerick city and county local authorities will each deal with their own housing needs separately and under the same policy, and the HSE will not be involved”.He concluded that despite numerous complaints to councillors regarding anti-social behaviour by those renting under the HSE scheme, not one contract of tenancy had ever been terminated by them.last_img read more

Works underway to conserve ‘Fireplace’ site on Nicholas Street

Rejecting the bail application, Additional Session Judge Vidyadhar Shirahatti, said : “The I.O. has not completed the investigation and has not filed the charge sheet. If the petitioner is released on bail, she may abscond or she may involve in similar offence which affect the peace at large.”As regards the argument on behalf of the applicant that mere sloganeering by itself cannot be an offence, the judge observed :”It is my opinion that there are no materials to show that Pakistan is or not an enemy country. But the slogans which are alleged to have been used by the petitioner will certainly affect the feelings of public, law order and public peace.” Amulya was arrested on February 20, under section 124-A, 153 (A), 153-B, 505 (2) of Indian Penal Code. After being in police custody for five days she was sent to judicial custody and has been since then in prison. Advocate B T Venkatesh appearing for the accused primarily argued that Amulya has not committed any offence as alleged by the police. She is not having any intention or Mens rea, which is an essential element of the offence established in Section 120(A) or 153 (A). Therefore, the present facts do not attract and do not show the involvement of the petitioner. He also argued that Pakistan is not declared as an enemy country. If at all the petitioner raises the slogans as ‘Pakisthan Zindabad’ , it does not amount to any offence, the counsel argued. Further, it was urged that Amulya is a 19 years old girl who is pursuing her Second-year B.A. in Journalism course and she has to appear for the examinations. She is ready to abide by all the conditions imposed by this court while granting the bail, the counsel undertook. The prosecution opposed the plea by saying that Amulya is having an intention to commit offence to incite people to create disorder and by raising the slogans created law and order problems.   The court primarily rejected the arguments of the petitioner on the grounds that the police had not filed the chargesheet, it said “In the present case, this court has not recorded any evidence and has not received a charge sheet. Even, the I.O. has not filed the challan or charge sheet. Therefore, it is very difficult to look into the materials in respect to the petitioner having Mens rea or not.” As regards to the argument that Pakistan is not declared as an enemy country, the court said “It is my opinion that there are no materials to show that Pakistan is or not an enemy country. But the slogans which are alleged to have been used by the petitioner will certainly affect the feelings of public, law order and public peace.” It concluded by saying that “I am of the opinion that still the investigation is not yet completed and the points which have been raised by the petitioner are to be considered at the time of full-pledged trial. If the petitioner is granted bail, she may abscond. Therefore, the bail petition of the petitioner is liable to be rejected.”  Click here to download the OrderNext Storylast_img read more
