Mergers drive US despite light volume

first_img Tags: NULL MERGER activity drove the Dow and S&P to two-and-a-half-year highs yesterday in the latest in a series of mileposts that point to more gains ahead.Buying accelerated after the S&P 500 broke through the 1,313 mark, taking the index further into levels that prevailed before the financial crisis. More than two stocks rose for every one that fell on both the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq, but the day’s rise came on lighter-than-average volume.Diversified industrial company Danaher agreed to buy medical diagnostics company Beckman Coulter for about $6.8bn. Oil driller Ensco said it would buy Pride International for about $7.3bn.“The size of these deals is an indication that the buyers feel comfortable putting that cash to work while the companies being bought are undervalued,” said James Dunigan, chief investment officer at PNC Wealth Management in Philadelphia, which oversees $105bn.“The level of the broader market is reasonable, but there are these individual situations that deserve a higher premium than the market is getting over all.”Danaher rose 2.2 per cent to $49.03 while Beckman Coulter gained 10 per cent to $82.65. Ensco fell 4.2 per cent to $52.13 while Pride International rose 15.7 per cent to $39.80.With the 1,313 level breached, stocks face little by way of technical resistance until the 1,400 level on the S&P.The Dow Jones industrial average was up 69.48 points, or 0.57 per cent, at 12,161.63. The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index was up 8.18 points, or 0.62 per cent, at 1,319.05. The Nasdaq Composite Index was up 14.69 points, or 0.53 per cent, at 2,783.99.The S&P is up 4.9 per cent so far in 2011, adding to the gains it notched mostly in the latter half of 2010. The size and swiftness of the advance has prompted many analysts to call for a correction, though none has materialized.UBS raised its 2011 target for the S&P 500 index by 7.5 per cent to 1,425 from 1,325, citing an improving outlook for the economy and earnings.AOL has agreed to buy The Huffington Post for $315m. The stock fell 3.4 per cent to $21.19.Loews reported a better-than-expected 16 per cent jump in profit, sending shares of the conglomerate up 4.5 per cent to $43.27.Volume was light, with about 6.89 billion shares traded on the New York Stock Exchange, the American Stock Exchange and Nasdaq, well below last year’s daily average of 8.47bn. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailJournalPregnant Woman Takes a Nap – You Won’t Believe What She Discovered When She WokeJournalZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen HeraldBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeTaco RelishOnly People With An IQ Of 130 Can Name These ItemsTaco Relishautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comNews SharperGrab A Tissue Before You See Richard Simmons At 72News SharperDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’Definition whatsapp Monday 7 February 2011 7:47 pm Show Comments ▼ Mergers drive US despite light volume Share KCS-content whatsapplast_img read more

Fresh from a sponsored five-mile run around the City, which raised more than £3,000, the lawyers descended on the Farringdon branch to replenish their energy reserves with a late lunch. Dining on main courses including guinea fowl and Springbok, they ensured hydration levels were topped up with a £600 bottle of Château Latour ’95. The meal was finished off with a round of the restaurant’s special Red Nose Day desserts – a delicate praline mousse topped with caramelised nasturtium flowers – with profits from the dish going straight to the Comic Relief appeal.

So the regional dishes including Beef Florenti, Veal Milanese and chef Douglas Santi’s lasagne were all well and good, but the high spots were a £550 bottle of Sassicaia from 1997 and a £1,400 bottle of Tuscan Masseto from 1998.

The exposed location of the building site in the district of St. Gertrud not far from the historic Old Town of Lübeck offers an excellent residential area.

An inclined roof with a gable end to the neighbour on Hövelnstrasse, a partition between base-/ground floor and the upper two floors as well as the high quality look underline the building’s villa-like appearance.Save this picture!© Dorfmüller/Kröger/KlierDue to its cubic shape and roof design the building maintains the necessary clearance areas. The 2-storey building with gable roof complies with the required distance of a half of it´s height on a length of 16 meters. The gables are inclined 45 ° to the street side and 20 ° to the garden (A total of less than 70 °, therefore, no clearance areas are necessary). The building sits 3 meters back from the border towards the rear building line of it´s neighbours, and therefore maintains a distance space of 1x its height.Save this picture!Floor PlanGreen spaces wrap around the house. The ground floor “merges” with the base by using a homogeneous brick texture. The private garden area is clearly defined, semi-public areas such as the entrance to the building and the garden in the northern part of the site invite you to linger. The parking garage – a structural component of the base and thus integrated in the design – is accessed via a parking lift.

Debit card payments overtake cash among UK consumers

first_img Melanie May | 19 June 2018 | News Tagged with: cashless payment contactless Finance UK consumers used their debit cards more than cash for the first time last year, according to figures from UK Finance.The latest UK Payment Markets report shows that UK consumers made 13.2 billion debit card payments in 2017, overtaking cash payments (13.1 billion), with these falling 15% year-on-year.The popularity of contactless payments among UK consumers is a key driver of debit card growth, according to UK Finance with nearly 119 million contactless cards in circulation by the end of 2017. In total, across both debit and credit cards, the number of contactless payments increased by 97% during 2017 to 5.6 billion. Almost two thirds (63%) of people in the UK now use contactless payments, and no age group or region falls below 50% usage.Around 3.4 million consumers almost never used cash at all last year. However, cash is still the second most frequently used payment method, just behind debit cards, accounting for just over one-third (34%) of all payments in 2017. Around 2.2 million customers mainly used cash for their day-to-day shopping in 2017, although nine out of ten of them had a debit card they could use if they chose, and the majority used other payment methods to pay their regular bills.In total, there were 38.8 billion payments made in the UK in 2017, with 89% of these made by individual customers. According to UK Finance, over the next decade debit card payment volumes are forecast to grow by more than any other payment method, increasing by 49% to 19.7 billion payments in 2027. This, it says, will be driven by the continuing rise of contactless payments, the ongoing growth of online shopping and ever-increasing levels of card acceptance amongst businesses of all sizes, but particularly amongst smaller businesses.The average adult in the UK made 54 payments per month during 2017. Of these, 20 payments were by debit card with another 20 made by cash. The average adult also made nine contactless payments per month in 2017, significantly higher than 2016’s average of five.Stephen Jones, Chief Executive, UK Finance said:“The choice of payment options available in the UK is allowing people to choose to pay the way that best suits them. But we’re far from becoming a cash-free society and despite the UK transforming to an economy where cash is less important than it once was, it will remain a payment method that continues to be valued and preferred by many.“These trends are likely to shift further over the next decade. Developments such as Open Banking are expected to bring extensive changes to the payments landscape, something that will likely shape how we interact with our money in the coming years.” About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

The Single Bench of Justice Anup Jairam Bhambhani has also asked for the complete records of the application moved before the Delhi Bench of NIA Court for seeking an extension of Navlakha’s judicial remand. In addition to this, as per court’s order, the application filed by the concerned Jail Superintendent, Tihar Jail seeking permission to transfer the applicant to Mumbai has also been requisitioned. The present has order come in pursuance of the submissions made by Ms Nitya Ramakrishnan who was appearing for Navlakha. Ms Ramakrishnan informed the court that while the present proceedings are pending, a hearing for extension of the applicant’s judicial remand was conducted on 23.05.2020 before the Special Judge (NIA), Delhi, and at the NIA’s request, the applicant’s judicial remand was extended upto 22.06.2020. It was further informed to the court by Ms Ramakrishnan that on 24.05.2020, although a Sunday, an application was moved by the NIA before the Special Judge (NIA), Mumbai seeking production warrants for the applicant before that court; which was allowed and warrants were issued for production of the applicant before the Special Judge (NIA), Mumbai on 26.05.2020 at 11 am. Based upon the production warrants so issued, an application was moved by the concerned Jail Superintendent, Tihar Jail, Delhi on 25.05.2020, being a Gazetted holiday on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr, seeking a transit order to transfer the applicant from Delhi to Mumbai. The said application was allowed and the applicant was sent to Mumbai via train on May 26. In light of these facts, Ms Ramakrishnan argued that such haste was shown by NIA in order to move the applicant out of this court’s jurisdiction. This is evident from the fact, she submitted, that neither of the Benches of Special Court were informed about the pendency of this petition. Appearing for the NIA, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta had informed the court that the NIA was planning to transfer the applicant to Mumbai sometime soon in view of opening-up of air travel after obtaining orders from the competent court. In light of these submissions, the court asked for the NIA Investigating Officer to be joined in the hearing through video conferencing. When SG resisted to this demand, the court rejected it and went ahead in directing for the appearance of the IO within an hour by noting that: ‘While ordinarily this court would not see too much cause for hurry in this case, in view of the inexplicable, frantic hurry shown by the NIA in moving the applicant from Delhi to Mumbai while this matter was pending and the NIA had itself sought time to file status report, this court does get a sense that all proceedings in this jurisdiction would be rendered utterly infructuous if an element of urgency is not brought to bear on the present proceedings. Prima-facie it appears that while on the last date, this court had granted adequate time to the NIA to file its status report in response to the interim bail plea ; and while the NIA has filed an affidavit opposing that plea, the NIA has acted in unseemly haste to instead remove the applicant out of the very jurisdiction of this court ; and, if the applicant is right, without even informing the Special Judge (NIA), Mumbai or the Special Judge (NIA), Delhi of the pendency of the present proceedings.’ NIA now is supposed to present all the directed documents before the next date of hearing. The matter will next be taken up on June 03.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img read more

Employers turn to Net search for new staff

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Employers turn to Net search for new staffOn 30 May 2000 in Personnel Today Nearly half of the UK’s employers are using the Internet to recruit staff, according to the fourth annual recruitment survey by the IPD.The survey of 262 recruiters, published last week, highlights the growth from 36 per cent in 1999 to 47 per cent based on matched examples 12 months later.Companies using the Internet employed three main cyber-recruiting strategies: application forms by e-mail, used by 66 per cent of respondents; recruitment via company intranets, reported by 62 per cent; and use of company web sites to advertise positions, which was reported by 43 per cent.The Internet is more likely to be used to advertise vacancies to recruit professional employees than it is for managerial.Of the companies surveyed, 42 per cent recruited professional staff through the Internet, 36 per cent used the Web to recruit managerial staff and 23 per cent of the companies used the new medium to hire skilled manual workers.Imogen Daniels, adviser in employee resourcing at the IPD, said, “The Internet as a recruitment tool is here to stay. I anticipate more and more employers switching to this method of recruitment.The survey also revealed an easing of recruitment difficulties despite a tightening labour market, with employers reporting an 8 per cent drop in recruitment difficulties.

Boyd Tinsley Accused Of Sexual Assault, Harassment, & Long-Term Grooming

first_imgFriday, May 18th, 10:30 am ET Update: According to Consequence of Sound, Dave Matthews Band released a statement on Thursday night officially distancing themselves from Tinsley, who they say is “no longer a member of the band.” DMB adds that they’re “shocked by these disturbing allegations and we were not previously aware of them.”Today, Consequence of Sound released a chilling article detailing sexual misconduct allegations against Boyd Tinsley, the longtime violinist for Dave Matthews Band who announced his hiatus from the group earlier this year. In the extensive article, writer Jessica Lipsky details Tinsley’s relationship with James Frost-Winn, a 28-year-old Seattle-based trumpet player who formerly worked with Tinsley in the band Crystal Garden in 2015 and 2016. Frost-Winn filed a lawsuit against Tinsley in Washington State on May 17th seeking $9 million in damages and alleging that Tinsley created a “hostile work environment” in which sex-based demands were intertwined with the band’s success.In the article, Frost-Winn details his relationship with the 54-year-old violinist, noting that they met in fall of 2007 when Frost-Winn was 18-years-old and homeless. Flattered by the mutual love of music and generosity Tinsley extended, Frost-Winn developed a friendship with Tinsley, who bought him and his friends dinners, car rides homes, and passes to Outside Lands Music Festival in 2009. After the Outside Lands Music Festival, Tinsley sent Frost-Winn a text calling him “sweet, tender, and innocent”—Frost-Winn claims that he rebutted the comments immediately and Tinsley apologized and said that “sometimes people do good things without expecting things in return” and “he wasn’t trying to hit on [Frost-Winn].”The two remained in contact over the years, with Frost-Winn performing around the Bay Area. In 2014, Tinsley approached the trumpeter about creating a band of his own that would be the subject of a documentary, and the two men formed Crystal Garden in 2015. At Tinsley’s suggestion, Frost-Winn moved from San Francisco to Seattle to pursue the endeavor, and the band embarked on a tour. However, as reported by Consequence of Sound, Frost-Winn notes that the two men’s relationship changed, with Tinsley making increasingly inappropriate comments and requests, from joking about Frost-Winn performing oral sex on Tinsley in exchange for his gift of football tickets to requesting that Frost-Winn give Tinsley the pair of socks he was wearing.After an explosive recording session where Tinsley “freaked out in seconds, grabbed this beautiful vintage guitar from the ’50s or ‘60s and smashed it to pieces” because bassist Charlie Csontos wasn’t following Tinsley’s directions, Frost-Winn took it upon himself to calm the Dave Matthews Band violinist down. As Consequence of Sound explains, “As Frost-Winn fell asleep on the couch in the studio, Tinsley allegedly touched his legs, rubbed his back, and put his feet on his buttocks.” Though annoyed, the trumpeter eventually fell asleep, though woke up to Tinsley masturbating next to him while touching his ass. While Frost-Winn was “freaked out” and “felt assualted,” Tinsley explained away his actions on a “pill mix-up,” and Frost-Winn forgave him but still remained wary.Over time, Frost-Winn and Tinsley’s relationship mended, though the inappropriate requests continued, and “Frost-Winn felt powerless, like he had to shrug it off” because Tinsley was his boss. In text messages included in the Consequence of Sound article, Tinsley asks Frost-Winn to “take some pics and vids of yourself and send me? It’s really hot when you wear dirty socks, btw.”More graphic, on March 18th, 2016, Tinsley sent the following text message to Frost-Winn:Gonna take more pics of you. Let me know when the swelling is gone and your neck is better. Would like to do it next week. You’re such boner material and I want you at your best. I’m actually masterbating to the thought of your shots. Prob will have you shave your pubes, at least above the cock base. I want you sagging some, with it being obvious that you aren’t wearing underwear. Jeans are dirty, shirt is dirty, but your face and hair are immaculate. Angelic. You get the vibe We’re going for huge throbbing boner shit (wet pussy included). You are the dirty pretty boy of the band. I have to sexually exploit you as much as I can without looking like I’m sexually exploiting you. I’m in full jerk right now, catch you later.Following these messages, the young trumpeter reevaluated the moment he caught Tinsley masturbating while touching him, leading him to quit Crystal Gardens and move back to the Bay Area.On February 2nd, 2018, Tinsley announced that he would be leaving Dave Matthews Band. The date of Tinsley’s announcement coincided with the date that Frost-Winn’s first demand letter to settle his case against Tinsley for assault and harassment was issued. However, in his statement on Twitter, Tinsley offered the following explanation to blindsided fans, noting that he needed “to take a break from the band & touring 2 focus on my family & my health 4 a while. I will miss you guys & my brothers in the band but I’m somewhat worn out & need 2 spend more time with my family & 2 bring more balance to my life.”Earlier in the week, Dave Matthews addressed Tinsley’s departure in an interview with Vulture. While Matthews expressed his “deep love for Boyd,” he was vague about the prospect of Tinsley returning and hinted that the violinist’s departure might not be as simple as Tinsley’s previous statements on focusing on health and family. Matthews elaborated,He has to deal with his stuff. In many ways, I’m sure it would’ve been a lot easier for him to just say, “I’m good. Let’s go play.” But you can’t just throw yourself away, your wellness away, because you play violin in a band. It doesn’t make any sense to do that. … I can’t say, ‘I can’t wait till he comes back,’ because I don’t know what’s going to happen. … But right now being away is better for him. Nobody is happy about this situation. Except that we’re happy he can figure some stuff out. I hope he does. But I’m going to miss having that whirling-dervish Adonis-Muppet over there on my right. I know the audience is, too. But we can’t serve that desire.This story will continue to unfold. You can read Consequence Of Sound’s extensive detailing of James Frost-Winn’s allegations against Boyd Tinsley here.last_img read more
