Speaking at the Trades Union Congress annual conference in Manchester, the Bank of England governor said the economic crisis rested squarely on the shoulders of the banking industry. He said: “Remuneration, especially the structure of financial sector bonuses, encouraged excessive risk-taking… your members, and indeed the businesses which employ them, are entitled to be angry.”However, King – who will soon have overall responsibility for bank regulation – said that clamping down on bonuses was not the answer, because “if banks want to pay this money to those individuals they will find a way to do it”.

He said: “It is vital for any government to set out and commit to a clear and credible plan for reducing the deficit. The current plan is to reduce the deficit steadily over five years – a more gradual fiscal tightening than in some other countries. As a result of a failure to put such a plan in place sooner, some euro-area countries have found… a much more rapid adjustment being forced upon them.”Unions reacted angrily to King’s comments. Paul Kenny, GMB general secretary, said: “His analysis of the excesses of the banking system reminds me of Jessie James warning people in the Wild West about the dangers of train robberies.” King tells the unions cuts are only option Tags: NULLlast_img read more

The Novacyt share price has 20-bagged in 2020. Is there still time to buy?

Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” The Covid-19 pandemic has wrought havoc in the stock market, and most UK shares have tumbled in price. But some, like Novacyt (LSE: NCYT) have done just the opposite. The Novacyt share price today stands more than 20 times higher than it was at the beginning of the year.It has been a lot higher, though. I’ve you were lucky enough to sell at the peak in mid-April, you could have pocketed a 38-bagger. Those who bought at the peak are now 40% down on their investment. Growth share prices often fall back a bit from their early peaks due to profit-taking before continuing up. So is the current dip a buying opportunity?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…The soaring ride of the Novacyt share price has all been down to demand for its Covid-19 tests. On Tuesday, the company gave us an update “on its polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test for COVID-19, developed by Primerdesign, the Company’s molecular diagnostics division“.Sales are booming in 2020By 1 June, sales of the test had reached €45m (£40m), with orders and contracts for delivery adding a further €90m (£80m). That takes total sales and confirmed orders to €135m (£120m). Considering that the firm’s consolidated revenue for the whole of 2019 came to £11.5m, the reason for the huge surge in the Novacyt share price is clear.Although 2019 brought home only modest adjusted EBITDA of €0.2m, the company was making steady progress. The year was the company’s third consecutive one with positive EBITDA. And Novacyt suggested it could have been better had it not faced working capital constraints. Well, with the cash that’s rolling in this year, I think working capital constraints should be a thing of the past.Does the Novacyt share price reflect the long term?Though Novacyt is looking a lot more like a viable prospect now, there’s a big question in my mind. Does the Novacyt share price genuinely reflect the company’s long-term prospects? Let’s look further at the latest update. The Primerdesign test is now being sold in more than 130 countries, and the UK and Germany are the biggest customers. Entry into the US market seems uncertain at this point, but the firm says it is “pleased with the progress it is making“.The French government has not approved the test, which is a bit of a setback, and the Novacyt share price fell on the news. As I write, it’s 7% down on the day.Sales could keep on soaringThis is generally all very impressive, but I see one huge potential downside. Sales of Novacyt’s coronavirus test could well explode in the coming months, as countries move from lockdown to mass testing. But how many tests will Novacyt sell next year? In 2022 and beyond?If someone develops an effective vaccine, that number could plunge to zero. And if that happens, the Novacyt share price will need to be valued on the rest of the company’s products.I see Novacyt as a potentially great long-term investment, and the company should certainly get an enormous boost from its Covid-19 test. But I’ll wait and see what the Novacyt share price looks like when the pandemic is behind us.

The 2020 stock market crash: 3 steps I’d take to buy the best shares now

first_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Image source: Getty Images The 2020 stock market crash could provide opportunities to buy the best shares at cheap prices to benefit from a long-term stock market recovery.Through identifying sectors with strong long-term growth prospects, it is possible to unearth companies with sound prospects. Furthermore, concentrating on company fundamentals may allow an investor to find businesses with solid market positions that can lead to higher profitability in the coming years.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…Buying such companies at discounts to their peers may mean higher returns in the long run after the 2020 stock market crash.Identifying the most attractive sectors to find the best sharesThe best shares to buy today could be those companies that operate in industries with strong long-term growth outlooks. Certainly, many sectors are likely to experience fast-paced change in the coming years, as the full impact of the coronavirus pandemic on consumer trends becomes clearer. However, some industries may have clearer paths to growth than others.For example, trends in the healthcare and retailing sectors may provide growth opportunities for businesses operating within them. In healthcare, factors such as a growing world population and an ageing population may mean that demand for products and services increases over the coming years. Similarly, online retailers may be able to produce higher rates of sales and profit growth than their bricks-and-mortar peers.Of course, market trends may be difficult to identify when seeking to find the best shares to buy today. However, investing money in a diverse range of sectors that have positive long-term growth outlooks may lead to relatively high returns in the coming years.Focusing on high-quality stocksSome of the best shares to buy today may be those companies with sound financial positions, as well as wide economic moats. They may be better able to survive a period of uncertain economic performance. They may even strengthen their positions relative to peers by investing in cheap assets or in developing new products and services to react to changing consumer demand.Company fundamentals can provide guidance on the financial strength of a business. For example, low debt levels within a company’s balance sheet suggest sound finances. Meanwhile, an economic moat can be identified by considering factors such as the uniqueness of a company’s products, as well as its degree of customer loyalty.Buying cheap shares for a stock market recoveryThe best shares within a specific sector may be those that trade at cheap prices relative to their peers. For example, a company that has a better financial position and a wider economic moat than its peers, but that trades at a discount to its rivals, may provide greater scope for capital appreciation over the long run.Therefore, considering a wide range of companies within a specific sector could be a useful step to find the best shares to buy today. It may provide an insight into which stocks offer the best value for money on a long-term basis.

Vincent Clerc finishes a great Toulouse try

first_imgFriday Apr 11, 2008 Vincent Clerc finishes a great Toulouse try There’s certain teams in world rugby you just don’t want to kick the ball downfield to. The Crusaders of New Zealand are one, and it’s looking more and more like Toulouse of France are another. Handing these teams possession can be suicidal, as Cardiff learnt in the Heineken Cup Quarter Final last weekend.Dynamic Toulouse winger Maxime Medard returned this long Cardiff kick with interest, setting up a pop pass for Argentinian second rower Patricio Albacete to make a barnstorming run down field before setting up the quick ball for Kelleher and crew to shift it wide with some great quick passing to put supreme finisher Vincent Clerc in for a well made try.One of the easier finishes for Clerc, this try was made to look so so easy by a quality Toulouse team that will no doubt now be one of the favourites to take the Heineken Cup honours.

Designed by Ole Scheeren, the DUO twin towers are an act of urban reconciliation. Conceived to knit together a previously disparate part of the city, DUO integrates the surrounding context with its diverse mix of functions around a 24-hour accessible public plaza to form a new civic nexus for the dynamic, prosperous life of Singapore.Save this picture!ImplantationRecommended ProductsRenders / 3D AnimationAUGmentectureAugmented Reality Platform – AUGmentecture™WindowsVitrocsaMinimalist Window – SlidingMetallicsStudcoWall Stop Ends – EzyCapEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsThe project is comprised of two expressive sculptural towers that have been dynamically carved to create a series of circular urban spaces. Their curved facades ripple with the delicate texture of a honeycomb shading system. The buildings’ slender forms envelope the public spaces, while the resulting geometries complement the angles of the existing architecture and create a landscape of covered and open-air gardens, walkways, cafes and restaurants.Save this picture!© Iwan BaanRather than functioning as a piece of individual and self-referential architecture, DUO is a sensitive insertion into Singapore’s urban fabric that unites a group of existing buildings through spatial integration and establishes a coherent overall urban figure. It turns a previously neglected neighborhood into a lively center for social interaction.Save this picture!Urban SpacesDUO represents a historic collaboration between the governments of Malaysia and Singapore.

Here, vibrant commercial spaces weave around the footprint of the towers through a sequence of gardens and walkways that pass in and out of the towers hovering above.Stretched across the skin of the DUO towers is an intricate honeycomb texture that not only hints at the hive-like activity of the surroundings, but also serves as a functional element in the building’s environmental strategy.Save this picture!© Iwan BaanThe honeycomb comprises a series of hexagonal sunshades that help protect the towers from the heat and glare of the sun, without interrupting the views out over Singapore’s gardens, oceans and skyline. The grid also provides texture to the smooth, concave curves of the towers, as well as accentuating the dramatic cantilevers and setbacks that form the physical body of DUO. The slender edges of each building are marked by a series of thin, vertical lines, designed to emphasize the elegance and re ned expression of the towers.Project gallerySee allShow lessResidence for Musicians / GEM ArchitectsSelected ProjectsKaohsiung American School Athletic Complex / MAYU architects+Selected ProjectsProject locationAddress:SingaporeLocation to be used only as a reference.

Ag Groups Fear Anti-trade Talk at RNC, Look to Pence for…

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Ag Groups Fear Anti-trade Talk at RNC, Look to Pence for Help Facebook Twitter SHARE Previous articleNearly 42,500 Comments Filed on 2017 RFS ProposalNext articleRains Bring Relief for Some, Problems for Others Hoosier Ag Today Farmers and agriculture groups all fear anti-trade talk at this week’s Republican National Convention in Cleveland. They are also looking for the presumptive nominee to keep pushing for reform of the regulatory agenda in D.C. Donald Trump has come out against the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the North American Free Trade Agreement, and threatened to impose high tariffs on China. That is alarming to the agriculture industry, but Trump’s selection of Indiana Governor Mike Pence has brought some optimism back into the ag sector. Pence is an outspoken supporter of the TPP and the other trade deals. House Ag Committee Chair Mike Conaway has offered to advise the Trump Campaign on farm policy, but they haven’t responded.Conaway will be joined by Senate Agriculture Committee Chair Pat Roberts at the Great American Farm Luncheon on Wednesday. This is an event organized by agribusiness interests at the Republican National Convention. Roberts hopes that Trump will keep up his criticism of President Obama on regulations, saying “our candidate has hit that one out of the park.”Source: NAFB News Service SHARE Facebook Twitter By Hoosier Ag Today – Jul 18, 2016 Ag Groups Fear Anti-trade Talk at RNC, Look to Pence for Helplast_img read more

How to get academic accommodations this semester

first_img + posts printThe beginning of a new semester can be a daunting task or refreshing start. The Center for Academic Services encourages students to plan ahead if they would like to receive academic accommodations for courses in the fall.The process for receiving the proper academic accommodations can be simple if done as soon as possible.The first step is to send or bring the most current testing records available to the Center for Academic Services department, located in Sadler Hall. This should be done as soon as possible. After the Academic Services has received the documents, they will be reviewed and the student will be assigned coordinator.The student and coordinator will have an interview where they discuss what the student wants most out of their accommodations. The coordinator’s role is to take the student’s testing results and interview them. Here, the coordinator will take into consideration the testing and interview to make a list of the accommodations necessary for the student to do their best. At the end of this interview, it’s crucial to set up another meeting time during the first week of school to review the accommodations the coordinator makes.First Week of ClassIn this meeting, the student will either approve or make changes to the accommodations that the coordinator has given. If changes need to be made, the student and coordinator will need to set up another meeting where they approve the changes made. If the accommodations are approved by the student and coordinator at the end of the first meeting, the student moves to the next step.The coordinator will give the student letters that must be signed by all professors the student will have that semester. Now, it is up to the student to speak to professors as quickly as possible. Professors often want to give the proper accommodations to students–it is important to arrange the accommodations before the first exam. This makes the testing process easier for the student and professor.Second Week of ClassDuring the second week of class, students should return all signed accommodations letters back to their coordinator. The coordinator will then ask the student to sign an agreement for the next semester. This agreement simply says that by turning in the signed accommodations letters, the Academic Services department will have the accommodations letters for the next semester’s courses available on the first-day class to expedite the process.

A good potato gnocchi is as much about the potato as anything else. So using a good quality potato, baking it and then shaping them may seem like a lot of work but the end result is simply amazing.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up WHAT TO DO For the gnocchi4 baked potatoes2 eggs150g flourPinch of salt and nutmeg (it works)For the sauce1 punnet of cherry tomatoesfresh basil – it’ll be foreign, but worth itparmesan cheese1 finely diced onion 2 cloves of garlicA light squeeze of tomato pureeOlive oilA little knob of butterWHAT TO DOFirst off, you must bake the potatoes, I find that baking them makes for a better result in my opinion. Also, I will say that there are several very good pre-made options out there and for those of you caught for time, they are perfectly acceptable to offer. Making your own gnocchi is something, like many of the Italian classics, that you must do at least once. Once the potatoes are baked, scoop the white flesh out of the skins and add the eggs and flour to a bowl and combine with the salt and the nutmeg. Shape into a long cylinder and cut them to small bite sized pieces. You can roll them into oblong shapes for that authentic feel and look. They will only take a few minutes to cook so have a pan of salted boiling water ready to cook them as they will only take three minutes to bring back to life. Meantime, get the sauce on by sweating the onion and the garlic in a pan with a little olive oil and butter. Add the cherry tomatoes and a little cup of water with the tomato puree. Some pasatta will suffice also. A sprinkle of sugar is an optional extra if you want to lift the sweetness. Allow that to reduce and let the tomato-ness shine through. Drop the gnocchi into the salted boiling water and once they have floated to the top, remove them and combine with the sauce. Top with some shredded basil and grated parmesan cheese. last_img read more
