2015 may be best year in a decade for UK households

first_imgMonday 20 April 2015 12:10 am CONSUMERS are enjoying a boom year as prices stay flat and wages rise, according to analysts at Deloitte who say it could be the best year for households since 2005.And the economy could be accelerating further. Economists at EY today disagreed with the Office for Budget Responsibility and the International Monetary Fund, forecasting a very strong 2016 for UK GDP.Growth is set to come in at 2.8 per cent this year and three per cent in 2016, EY said, as the Eurozone recovers and as cheap oil and the strong pound help out consumers.“With less than a month now until the election, the economy and businesses seem to be powering through relatively unscathed,” said EY’s chief economist. “Despite a softer performance from business investment in recent months, we’re likely to see the pace of spending by firms gather again later this year as companies hone their strategies to tap into buoyant consumer confidence.”Foreign firms are already investing more in the UK, with Chinese, Euro­pean and US buyers lining up to snap up British businesses, to benefit from the economic success story.That confidence boom was underlined by Deloitte’s consumer tracker, which has risen to its highest level since the index began in 2011.The net percentage of households which received a pay rise in the last quarter came in at 14 per cent.“With the recent return to real wages growth and further falls in unemployment, consumer finances are starting to normalise,” said De­loitte’s chief economist Ian Stewart.“This points to an acceleration in consumer activity and suggests 2015 may well be the best year for consumer spending since 2005.”However, the study also showed that 40 per cent of households are worried the General Election could affect their finances, which puts a temporary dampener on confidence.

Mandating cybersecurity standards is positive for financials, Moody’s says

first_img Related news Technology security concept. Modern safety digital background. Protection system vska/123RF James Langton As investors go online, criminals follow Given that the financial sector is a top target for cyber criminals, legislating cybersecurity standards would be positive for the industry, says Moody’s Investor Service in a new report.Last week, European regulators called on the European Commission (EC) to toughen its laws relating to cybersecurity and other technology risks in the financial sector. Moody’s reported that an analysis by regulators found that existing legislation doesn’t explicitly deal with cybersecurity risk, and that minimum requirements should be legislated to address these risks. ESMA launches digital finance consultation Moody’s noted that it views banks, securities firms and market infrastructure providers (such as exchanges and clearing firms) as three of the top sectors with the highest inherent cyber risk exposure. Legislating minimum standards in this area would be a positive for financial firms, it said.“Because cybersecurity risks threaten the stability of the financial system and financial institutions are vulnerable to cyberattacks, cross-border legislative efforts to improve the risk management and resiliency of cybersecurity and promote stronger operational resilience and harmonization are credit positive for European financial institutions,” the rating agency said.Among other things, Moody’s reported that the regulators recommend that firms should be subject to basic cybersecurity risk governance requirements; that incident reporting requirements should be introduced, or enhanced; and that there should be appropriate oversight of critical third-party service providers to financial institutions, such as cloud computing services.Moody’s also noted that regulators concluded that penetration testing based on threat intelligence, which involves controlled hacking attempts that simulate cyber criminals’ behaviour, represents the best approach to testing cyber resilience.However, they also concluded that it’s not feasible to introduce a coordinated threat-led penetration-testing framework in the short term, “because there are significant differences across and within financial sectors in terms of cyber maturity, and only a few authorities currently organize such testing.”Longer term, they’d like to see to comprehensive mandatory testing of this sort, but in the short term, they’d like to see lawmakers consider establishing voluntary threat-led penetration testing.

It will be situated within NIMHANS and is a sister institute of the Deakin Child Study Centre based in Australia (DCSC), The Centre of Excellence will focus on research to understand neurodevelopment from early childhood to adolescence. This is a critical time during which a child learns pivotal skills to regulate emotions, interact with peers and develop a sense of self. This developmental period poses a broad range of challenges for children, parents, teachers, coaches and health professionals. Central to the development of social and emotional wellbeing is the ability to understand the challenges of children of all abilities, including children with neurodevelopmental disorders.Research has shown that early intervention is imperative to tackle neurodevelopmental disorders.The program at the Centre of Excellence will be based on three pillars –Establish what matters – Apply innovative approaches to assess and measure in order to understand and characterise the developing brain and neurological disorder.Improve outcomes of children with disorders – Utilise novel psychological interventions that demonstrate great promise in treating clinical symptoms in children with neurodevelopmental disorders.Work and engage with the community – Ensure that every child with a development and/ or mental health conditions has the best possible opportunity to reach his/ her full developmental potential.Speaking at the signing of the MoU, Prof Jane den Hollander, Vice-Chancellor, Deakin University, Australia said “The three pillars will help the Centre of Excellence remain focussed on developing child-centred interventions.”Reiterating the Centre‘s dedication to working with the community, Prof Hollander, further added, “With these interventions we hope to create inclusive environments where children of all abilities feel secure to thrive socially and emotionally, and to have the same access to community participation as their peers. We intend to use our experiences from DCSC in Australia and map it as per the requirements of a diverse country like India.”Adding to this, Prof BN Gangadhar, Director, NIMHANS stated that “The importance of providing mental support during the formative years of child development is crucial. This support multiplies when the child is differently abled. In these cases, the need to provide equal exposure to all external factors like education and sports also become important. The centre will gain immensely through this collaboration where in NIMHANS understands the local needs and Deakin brings in the international experience.”In the future, the Centre will also introduce dual PhD programme with the clinical psychology department at NIMHANS. The programme is also proposed expand to other departments that facilitate student mobility and provide clinical internships for Australian students with shared clinical supervision.

Trump threatens to bypass Commission on Presidential Debates

first_imgHomeNewsElectionsTrump threatens to bypass Commission on Presidential Debates Dec. 17, 2019 at 5:00 amElectionsGovernmentNewsPoliticsTrump threatens to bypass Commission on Presidential DebatesAssociated Press1 year agoCommission on Presidential Debatesdebatesfox newstrump Associated PressPresident Donald Trump made clear Monday that he intends to participate in at least three general election debates, but he is threatening to sidestep the nonprofit group charged with running them.“I look very much forward to debating whoever the lucky person is who stumbles across the finish line in the little watched Do Nothing Democrat Debates,” Trump tweeted Monday morning after The New York Times reported that he was considering skipping them entirely.Trump said his record “is so good” that “perhaps I would consider more than 3 debates.” But he also complained, without evidence, that the Commission on Presidential Debates is “stacked with Trump Haters & Never Trumpers” and threatened to bypass them.“As President, the debates are up…….to me, and there are many options, including doing them directly & avoiding the nasty politics of this very biased Commission,” Trump wrote, adding that he would “make a decision at an appropriate time.”Trump tussled with the commission as well as Fox News about the debates during the 2016 election cycle.He incorrectly claimed Monday on Twitter that the commission was “forced to publicly apologize for modulating my microphone” in the first general election debate against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in September 2016.The commission acknowledged after the September 2016 debate at Hofstra University in New York that “there were issues regarding Donald Trump’s audio that affected the sound level in the debate hall,” but it did not apologize.In January 2016, he boycotted the seventh Republican presidential debate after Fox News, which was hosting the debate, refused to accede to Trump’s demand that network anchor Megyn Kelly be replaced as a moderator. Instead, Trump held a fundraiser for veterans at the same time as that debate.In a statement, the commission said, “The televised general election debates are an important part of our democratic process.” It said the commission has conducted 30 general election presidential and vice presidential debates since 1988.“Our record is one of fairness, balance and non-partisanship,” the statement said.The commission has scheduled three presidential debates and one vice presidential debate for the 2020 election cycle. The University of Notre Dame, the University of Michigan, and Belmont University have been tapped to hold presidential debates. The commission selected the University of Utah to host the vice presidential debate.Tags :Commission on Presidential Debatesdebatesfox newstrumpshare on Facebookshare on Twitteradd a commentHuman Rights Watch recognizes local students’ effortsLoughlin’s lawyers say prosecutors are hiding key evidenceYou Might Also LikeFeaturedNewsBobadilla rejects Santa Monica City Manager positionMatthew Hall7 hours agoFeaturedNewsProtesting parents and Snapchat remain in disagreement over child protection policiesClara Harter18 hours agoFeaturedNewsDowntown grocery to become mixed use developmenteditor18 hours agoNewsBruised but unbowed, meme stock investors are back for moreAssociated Press18 hours agoNewsWedding boom is on in the US as vendors scramble to keep upAssociated Press18 hours agoNewsCouncil picks new City ManagerBrennon Dixson18 hours agolast_img read more

News / Lack of transparency holds back green growth in shipping, says Carbon War Room

first_img Increased transparency could be the only way for shipping to become more environmentally friendly.The Carbon War Room, an environmental think-tank, has been set up by a group of entrepreneurs with the founding principle that the market would ultimately force shipping companies to reduce emissions.However, it would appear that belief is under threat after the organisation completed a major study in conjunction with University College London, which discovered that more-efficient ships have failed to command higher charter fees since the financial crisis began in 2008, driving away incentive for owners to order them.Galen Hon, Carbon War Room shipping operations manager, told The Loadstar at last week’s SMM show in Hamburg: “Ships with efficient technology are not valued properly – the charterers are saving tonnes of money using these vessels, but none of it is going back to the owners, which shows that the market is incredibly broken. The study, Revealed Preferences for Energy Efficiency in the Shipping Markets, discovered that one of the problems governing the industry and the lack of progress in adopting more efficient vessels was a lack of transparency.“What we have found is that there is a huge amount of risk aversion and a big knowledge gap – there is a lot of education that needs to be done and there’s not enough data in the marketplace,” he said, which had meant that finance for more efficient vessels was harder to raise.“Even if there was enough data, and we can work with banks, there are still doubts about the payback period of the new technology. As an industry, there is a problem with a short payback mentality. A few years ago, owners typically wanted a payback period of two-to-three years, since then it has been moving in the wrong direction,” he said.One shipowner told the research team that it needed a payback period of just six months,“The only shipping company I know that has a sensible time frame in mind is Stena Line, which will accept a payback period of six-to-eight years, because it has a long-term vision, essential to its long-term future,” he said, implying that the companies had become more risk-averse.However, Orestis Schinas, a professor at Hamburg School of Business Administration’s maritime and logistics department, didn’t agree. He said: “Shipowners are pro-risk people because it is the only way they make money, but they are technology-averse.“They also invest their own money, typically around 20-30% of the value of a vessel, so they need to hedge that risk, which they do so by fixing long-term charters.”He argued that one way for companies developing greener shipping solutions to entice more orders would be to develop finance solutions themselves,“Manufacturing leasing solutions are certainly part of the future, and newbuilds will have two accounts – one for the hull and one for machinery – and a leasing scheme that might support innovative machinery would come from European manufacturers, while a leasing scheme for the hull would come from the Asian shipyards,” he said.
