18 British banks face debt rating blow

first_img whatsapp 18 British banks face debt rating blow Show Comments ▼ Up to 18 British banks could see their senior debt ratings cut several notches by Moody’s over coming months as the rating agency assesses how they would fare without implicit government support.The banks more immediately vulnerable to a downgrade are smaller institutions, including many building societies, rather than larger banks still heavily supported by the state, Moody’s said.It said it was reviewing systemic support assumptions incorporated into the senior debt ratings of these banks as they were unlikely to be deemed systemic in the medium term, and would instead be judged as standalone credits.British banks benefited from up to five notches of uplift to their senior debt ratings during the crisis from implicit systemic support, Moody’s said.The bigger ones, including those bailed out in the financial crisis such as Lloyds and Royal Bank of Scotland, will also be scrutinised in the second half of 2011, and may until then be subject to negative outlooks, Moody’s said. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepediamoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen HeraldBetterBeDrones Capture Images No One Was Suppose to SeeBetterBe Sharecenter_img whatsapp Tags: NULL John Dunne Thursday 7 April 2011 3:18 am 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?

Travel Tips For 3-Day-Weekends

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Please enter your comment! The arrival of warm weather signals the season of three-day weekends and more people are using that time to travel. Whether it’s three glorious days off due to a holiday, summer office hours or simply cashing in on precious PTO time, weekend warriors are taking advantage.This weekend travel trend may be attributed to more people “working to live” rather than “living to work.” In fact, 68 percent of Americans would rather embark on a bucket-list trip than get a big promotion, according to a Hampton by Hilton survey.These trips don’t have to break the bank, especially when flying isn’t always essential for a memorable adventure. Hopping in the car this summer is a cost-effective, easy way to jumpstart your vacation. According to AAA’s 2016 Your Driving Costs study, gas prices in the U.S. are at a record low. With that in mind, this summer is the ideal season for road trips.“You don’t need a full week to enjoy a vacation. Many of the best times I’ve had with my family have happened on three-day travel adventures,” says Kristen Hewitt, sports reporter and blogger at www.MommyInSports.com.This weekend mindset has inspired a new travel segment known as the Seekender. Seekenders are bold adventurers who take advantage of the weekend to pursue their passions. Sound like you? Check out Hewitt’s favorite travel tips to get the most out of every moment of your next three-day trip:Target the four-hour markYou don’t want to spend two days of your three-day vacation traveling, so pick a destination you can access in four hours or fewer. Following this rule ensures you have as much time as possible to enjoy your destination. Plus, if you travel with kids, they’ll be much more mellow and you’ll avoid those “Are we there yet?” moments.Select an accommodating hotelChoose a hotel with a variety of locations so you’ll be close to the action and attractions.Pack right, pack lightResist the temptation to over-pack by packing for versatility. Don’t forget to add a few accessories that transform outfits quickly, such as statement jewelry and summer hats. A simple packing trick to get the most out of the space in your carry-on is to roll clothing. You’ll fit more in and eliminate wrinkles!Free up the itineraryIt’s tempting to pack as much as possible into three days, but you’ll end up stressed and exhausted by the end if you do. For long weekends, select one main activity you want to do — such as a tourist stop, museum visit or day at the beach — and leave the rest of the time open for casual exploration. Spontaneity often inspires the best adventures.Stay on budget and eat wellIf you can cut down on your food bill, your entire trip will be more affordable. Look for a hotel that offers free breakfast so you can start your day with a full belly. When out and about, never underestimate the appeal of a picnic in a park — a more affordable alternative to restaurant dining.Indulge your wanderlust and begin planning your next three-day weekend trip.

Ulster power through Leicester Tigers in front of a packed Ravenhill

first_imgThursday Jan 19, 2012 Ulster power through Leicester Tigers in front of a packed Ravenhill Leicester Tigers were dealt with in no uncertain terms as Ulster handed them a hefty 41-7 blow at Ravenhill on Friday night. It was the largest points total Leicester had conceded in 15 seasons of European rugby, and the biggest margin of defeat too. Ulster came out firing as their vocal home crowd backed them all the way against a powerhouse side that in the past wouldn’t have struggled to such an extent. This time, they were no match for Ulster who have effectively knocked the Tigers out of the competition.“We are out. We will be third in our group. We are done,” said Leicester’s Richard Cockerill.“You don’t want to be conceding 40 points. They are a good side, and we didn’t cope with it. We never got on the front foot enough, and when we did, they worked very hard on the ball and we couldn’t cope with their intensity.“We needed to come here and get a result, and we thought we could do that. The side we had out was good enough to put up a better show than that,” he added.On the flipside Ulster’s skipper Johann Muller was full of praise for his troops.“That was definitely one of our best performances in terms of taking our chances and the passion we showed. But it doesn’t mean anything unless we get some points in Clermont [next week]. We have to make sure we do what we have to do,” he said.Andrew Trimble scored twice and South African Ruan Pienaar, who has just extended his contract, kicked five penalties and three conversions. Craig Gilroy scored with about ten minutes left, then speedy number nine Paul Marshall exploited a huge gap to drive the nail into the Leicester coffin.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.

The residential development is located within a spacious ten-storey housing complex in Berlin-Lichtenberg and delivers densification. The construction of additional flats and a new day-care centre for children provides the opportunity for contemporary development in the neighbourhood near Berlin’s centre and considers both individual and collective housing options. The two eight-storey residential towers react to the urban environment by being slightly offset, and a common podium helps blend them into the surroundings. The careful placement of the buildings creates a three-sided courtyard in the south, connects to an existing footpath in the west, a sequence of spaces in the east, and a sheltered garden for the day-care centre in the north.Save this picture!© Andrew AlbertsThe robust podium is constructed of prefabricated, wall-high concrete units that present relief to the public space. The pavilion of the nursery is integrated into the shared podium and connected with both buildings and the open spaces. A path covered by a wide-span reinforced concrete girder connects the entrances of the residential towers and becomes the recognisable address of the complex. The raised ground floors of the residential towers contain spaces for flat-shares and experimental forms of living.Save this picture!© Andrew AlbertsSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Andrew AlbertsThe single rooms are also accessed via individual external staircases. Above lie the standard storeys with 70 apartments, including 21 subsidised apartments served by internal cores, each with a single flight of stairs and an elevator for four to five units, as well as load-bearing exterior walls. The floor plans of the apartments are based on the principle of largely neutral and partly switchable spaces in combination with internal bathrooms.Save this picture!© Andrew AlbertsSave this picture!© Andrew AlbertsThe exterior walls are built as a monolithic construction and are given a dark coat of paint to absorb solar energy. A single upright French window, partly with an integrated parapet, meets the lighting and ventilation requirements. Balconies have one solid sidewall each and are designed as precast concrete units which are thermally separated. They are distributed irregularly on all four elevations of both residential towers.Save this picture!© Andrew AlbertsProject gallerySee allShow lessAlcôa Pastry / Contacto AtlânticoSelected ProjectsHow Does a Trombe Wall Work?ArticlesProject locationAddress:Berlin, GermanyLocation to be used only as a reference.

[amzn_product_post]In the first half of the twenty-first century, giving to family and community foundations alone will be ten times in today’s dollars what it was throughout the entire twentieth century. Yet despite tremendous innovation in the social sector, philanthropy’s natural state is under-performance. Not since Andrew Carnegie wroteThe Gospel of Wealthhas a book been written that provides practical ./guidance for donors to get the most impact from their giving.Almost a decade ago, Thomas J. Tierney left Bain & Company to co-found The Bridgespan Group, a nonprofit focused on helping donors and nonprofit leaders to develop and execute strategies to accelerate social change. InGive Smart, Tierney pools his hands-on knowledge with philanthropy expert Joel L. Fleishman to create a much-needed primer for philanthropists and the nonprofit organisations they support.

Children’s Air Ambulance uses DRTV for first time

It invites viewers to make a text donation, and is appearing on direct responsive channels.It was created with support from WPN Chameleon, who are also enhancing its impact though paid search, social media and video display. Media planning and buying has been done by MC & C Media and fulfilment by DTV Optimise.The campaign is part of the charity’s efforts to find and test new long-term channels for donor recruitment.[youtube height=”450″ width=”800″]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qmw2fnW3EB8[/youtube] Children’s Air Ambulance uses DRTV for first time The Children’s Air Ambulance is an inter-hospital transfer service for critically ill children. Theirs is the only helicopter in the country dedicated to this work and that is equipped with custom built stretcher technology that allows the safe transport of critically ill children and babies.Each transfer costs approximately £2,800. It costs around £134,000 per month to run the service.Ellie Topham, Head of Marketing at the Children’s Air Ambulance said:“This is a first for the charity. Despite the state of the art equipment our service demands, as a young charity we have relatively little public awareness and it’s vital that we grow our supporter numbers. We felt that the TV was a natural home for our fundraising ask as our life saving work is highly visual and emotive. WPN Chameleon has a great track record in successful DRTV and it was a pleasure working with them.”  105 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 Howard Lake | 21 October 2015 | Newslast_img read more

Cuba pledges refuge for ‘U.S. civil rights fighters’

first_imgAssata ShakurOn June 16, Donald Trump, while announcing the rollback of President Obama’s modest improvements in U.S. imperialism’s posture towards revolutionary Cuba, demanded Cuba return freedom fighter Assata Shakur.As part of the Cuban government’s overall response to Trump’s attack, Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez rebuffed Trump’s demand: “Regarding the issue of the so-called ‘U.S. fugitives in Cuba,’ I can reaffirm that, under our national law and international law and the Latin American tradition, Cuba has granted political asylum or refuge to U.S. civil rights fighters. Of course these people will not be returned to the United States, which lacks the legal, political, and moral foundation to demand this.” (telesur.net, June 20)In May 1973, Assata Shakur, former Black Panther Party activist and member of the Black Liberation Army, was in a car stopped by New Jersey state troopers.  A shootout broke out. One trooper and the car’s driver were killed, and Shakur was severely wounded.Another trooper initially testified that Shakur shot and killed the cop, but then admitted he lied. In her trial, it was revealed that Shakur never even touched a weapon let alone fired one. The police bullets that pierced Shakur had severed nerves in her arms and shoulders, making it impossible for her to fire a weapon.Nevertheless, an all-white jury, including five friends and family of N.J. state troopers, convicted Shakur of murder simply because she was present at the shootout. She was sentenced to life in prison.Assata Shakur received horrible treatment in prison. In 1979, the United Nations Commission on Human Rights wrote: “One of the worst cases is that of Assata Shakur, who spent over twenty months in solitary confinement in two separate men’s prisons subject to conditions totally unbefitting any prisoner. Many more months were spent in solitary confinement in mixed or all-women’s prisons. Presently, after protracted litigation, she is confined at Clinton Correctional Facility for Women in maximum security. She has never on any occasion been punished for any infraction of prison rules which might in any way justify such cruel or unusual punishment.”Assata Shakur gave birth to her daughter Kakuya Shakur in 1974.  While in the hospital she was beaten and restrained by prison guards. On Nov. 2, 1979, with the help of BLA members, Assata Shakur escaped from the New Jersey Clinton Correctional Facility. The FBI and local police conducted a massive, nationwide manhunt for Shakur, including warrantless searches through a whole apartment building in Harlem.In 1984, Shakur managed to reach Cuba, where the government immediately granted her asylum. She was reunited with her daughter in 1985. In 1987, she published her autobiography, and in 1997, she wrote the book “Still Black, Still Strong” with Dhoruba bin Wahad and Mumia Abu-Jamal.Black Lives Matter co-founder Alicia Garza wrote: “When I use Assata’s powerful demand in my organizing work, I always begin by sharing where it comes from, sharing about Assata’s significance to the Black Liberation Movement, what it’s political purpose and message is, and why it’s important in our context.” (thefeministwire.com, Oct. 7, 2014)Assata’s pledge affirms: “It is our duty to fight for our freedom. It is our duty to win.  We must love and protect one another. We have nothing to lose but our chains.”U.S. imperialism has long sought to reimprison Assata Shakur. New Jersey and the federal government have offered a $2 million bounty for her capture. But revolutionary Cuba has long stood on the side of the oppressed people of the U.S. and around the world.  No amount of bullying by Boss Trump is going to shake its resolve.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
