City Link called in administrators Ernst & Young on 24 December but workers only found out through reports in the media on Christmas Day. Speaking in front of the joint Scottish Affairs and BIS select committee, Moulton said the move was made with “all the enthusiasm of a man reviewing the details of his own hanging”. He said that he had wanted to hold back on the news until Boxing Day and laid the blame for the Christmas Day notice at the door of the RMT union.Better Capital lost £20m trying to turn City Link around but the venture proved impossible. City Link lost £3m in December, a devastating blow in the busiest month of the year. Moulton said it injected another £2m on 22 December but “the final legs ran out when the last buyer ceased to be on the table and the last refinancing ran out. That was the 22nd of December”. center_img Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Read This NextYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofBaked Sesame Salmon: Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofCreamy Pumpkin Soup: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof Express KCS Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Tran Van Minh/AP Trending Now: Dien said some 300 dengue patients were being treated, stretching the hospital’s resources, including longer working hours without weekend leaves.advertisement About the Author Reprints HANOI, Vietnam — Vietnam has been battling raging dengue fever outbreaks with more than 10,000 new infections reported over the past week stretching its medical system.The number of admitted patients represents a 42 percent increase over the same period last year along with seven more deaths, the Ministry of Health said Friday. A total of 90,626 people have been infected, of whom 76,848 have been hospitalized and 24 have died.The ministry attributed the rise of dengue outbreaks to higher temperature, more rains, and rapid urbanization that promote the breeding of virus-carrying mosquitoes.advertisement By Associated Press Aug. 18, 2017 Reprints Newsletters Sign up for Morning Rounds Your daily dose of news in health and medicine.center_img Leave this field empty if you’re human: Hanoi and the southern commercial hub of Ho Chi Minh City are the hardest hit.The government on Thursday urged residents to actively engage in killing mosquitoes and mosquito larvae, particularly at construction sites and housing for workers.“The joint efforts by the people as well as our political system in searching and eliminating mosquito larvae, emptying water containers, which are fertile for larvae to breed, and spraying chemicals to kill mosquitoes are key factors to curb dengue fever,” Dien said.— Tran Van Minh Please enter a valid email address. Associated Press Tran Thi Xuyen, a fruit and vegetable seller in a small market in Son La province, said she did not know how she contracted dengue fever, which also infected her fellow saleswoman.“I took antibiotics prescribed by the local district hospital for four days, but the fever did not go away and I admitted myself to this hospital where doctors said I had dengue fever,” she said from her hospital bed.There is no cure for any of the four strains of the mosquito-borne virus that causes high fever, exhaustion and in some cases a vicious skin rash. Patients most at risk of dying are the elderly, children or those with other medical complications. Dr. Vu Minh Dien of the National Hospital of Tropical Diseases in Hanoi, where the most severe cases were being treated, said that 800-1,000 people have been checking in daily complaining of fever. That compares to only several cases that reported to the hospital in June and July last year, he said. Privacy Policy Tags infectious diseasepublic healthlast_img read more

Portlaoise shoppers encouraged to go plastic and packaging free on Friday

first_img Community WhatsApp TAGSplastic free Council Jennie Jacques de Cisneros of Minimal Waste Grocery taking part in a previous minimal waste grocery pop-up shop supported by the EMWR Shoppers in Portlaoise will have the opportunity to shop waste free this Friday, as the Eastern Midlands Regional Waste Management Office (EMWR) joins forces with Minimal Waste Grocery to introduce a new concept of shopping – plastic and packaging free.On Friday September 7, 2018 Jennie Jacques de Cisneros will introduce her Minimal Waste Grocery business to Portlaoise Farmer’s Market for one day only.The pop-up waste free grocery business will sell everything from pasta to porridge, mouth wash to dental floss, laundry liquid and legumes, all without the need for packaging.Declan Breen, Waste Prevention Officer with the EMWR which is supporting a minimal waste grocery tour throughout the region, said Minimal Waste Grocery shopping highlights the amount of unnecessary packaging that makes up most of our weekly grocery shop.“There is so much excessive packaging, and in particular plastic packaging, involved in our weekly shop that leads to unnecessary waste. This excessive packaging is costly to the environment and the consumer, so reducing it makes both environmental and economical sense,” he said.“We have received numerous questions from consumers on how to reduce the amount of packaging involved in the weekly shop. Minimal Waste Grocery is a great way of achieving that goal.“We would like to see even more retail businesses, and in particular our larger supermarkets, also take a lead from Minimal Waste Grocery and give consumers what they want by eliminating unnecessary packaging.”“In the meantime I would encourage shoppers in Portlaoise to check out the Minimal Waste Grocery at the Portlaoise Farmer’s Market on Friday, where they will get plenty of ideas on how to reduce packaging. The EMWR is hopeful that this tour will get people thinking about the way they shop and be more conscious of excess packaging,” added Mr Breen.Jennie Jacques de Cisneros set up Minimal Waste Grocery in June 2017, providing plastic free solutions to everyday essentials.“I was irritated by the amount of packaging forced upon me every week as part of my grocery shop. I went looking for an alternative way to shop and when it wasn’t available I set up Minimal Waste Grocery,” she said.“With Minimal Waste Grocery you bring your own jars or containers and we fill them with what every you require. You buy as little or as much as you need and are not constrained by package size, therefore minimising food wastage.“It is more economical to shop this way as you buy only what you need and without packaging and branding you are keeping costs down. Also when you shop this way you are not contributing any more plastic to the world.”Jennie can also provide free sterilised recycled jars to customers who may not have sufficient jars or containers for their shopping.People can also shop at the Minimal Waste Grocery by logging on to minimalwastegrocery.com with deliveries made nationwide.Meanwhile more information on how to minimise everyday waste can be found on www.emwr.ieSEE ALSO – REVEALED: Electric Picnic 2019 tickets to go on sale THIS WEEK Community Facebook Twitter Pinterest Facebook New Arles road opens but disquiet over who was invited to official opening Portlaoise shoppers encouraged to go plastic and packaging free on Friday WhatsApp Pinterest RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR By Alan Hartnett – 3rd September 2018 Previous articleOur latest football team of the week as it is the end of the road for someNext articleDraw made for JFC semi finals and all this week’s GAA fixtures Alan HartnettStradbally native Alan Hartnett is a graduate of Knockbeg College who has worked in the local and national media since 2008.

Best opportunities for growth are outside Canada

With weaker demand for Canadian natural resources, advisors looking for higher returns for their clients should turn their attention to global opportunities, according to Dean Orrico, president and chief investment officer, at Toronto-based Middlefield Capital Corp. Although Canadian securities have a place in an equity-focused portfolio, there are better opportunities abroad, said Orrico, who spoke at the Canadian Institute of Financial Planners (CIFPs) annual conference in Niagara Falls, Ont. on Monday.

Specifically, sectors such as real estate, financials and industrials are poised to do well south of the border for several reasons. First, with the housing and labour markets improving more people will be moving out of apartments and into houses, he said. Second, confident American consumers are likely to start borrowing more from U.S. banks and credit card companies than Canadians. And third, the nascent economic recovery will spell increased demand in a number of important industries, such as chemicals. Europe is also heading into recovery, although investors may have to be a little patient to see the benefits, Orrico said. The European market will continue to see low or even negative returns over the next 24 months; however, economies in the region should begin to improve after that. A specific sector in Europe that Orrico favours is health care. Many European-based pharmaceutical companies have low valuations because of the generally negative sentiment toward European equities. However, Orrico noted that sales and earnings for these firms tend to come from around the world. “We think that’s a one-two combination to get exposure to high-quality, liquid companies,” he said. Orrico is also optimistic about the energy sector. He suggested that the economic recovery and general oversupply of shale gas and oil mean that equity investors can find positive returns in the energy infrastructure and oil and gas sectors. Regardless of the direction of oil and gas prices, he says, there will still be a need for infrastructure projects such as pipelines and power generators. Furthermore, while natural gas prices has been the “suffering child” of commodities since the downturn, said Orrico, that is about to change. Between spring of 2012 and today, the price of natural gas has doubled and he expects more healthy increase in future as demand increases. Click here for more news from the conference.

Canadians with debt not turning to advisors for help

first_img One in five Canadians will need to liquidate an asset to pay for debt: survey Keywords Consumer borrowing and saving Canadians more focused on saving than paying down debt: survey A quarter of Canadians with debt are more likely to turn to their family or friends for advice and guidance on handling that debt than they would be to talk to a financial advisor (14%), according to preliminary results of Toronto-based AGF Investments Inc. third annual investor survey, which were released on Monday. However, advisors have an important role to play in educating Canadians on ways to overcome the barriers to saving and paying down debt, suggests AGF’s survey, especially in light of research produced in 2012 by Montreal-based Centre for Interuniversity Research and Analysis of Organizations. That third-party report found that investors who work with advisors accumulate two and a half to three times the wealth of those who don’t over a 15-year period. The AGF investor survey also finds that many Canadians are struggling with balancing the need to pay down debt and saving for the future. More than eight in 10 survey participants (81%) report having some form of debt and 48% of those with debt say their current financial situation is preventing them from saving. Living expenses and rent or mortgage payments are the most commonly mentioned factors that prevent Canadians with debt from saving. “One of the goals of this year’s survey is to better understand the barriers to saving, so that we can enable Canadians to reach their investment goals,” says Judy Goldring, executive vice president and chief operating officer of AGF Management Ltd, in a statement. “We want to continue to build on the knowledge gained from previous surveys and to delve deeper into investor mindsets.” Most Canadians are prioritize paying down their debt over saving, with 58% of survey participants between the ages of 18 and 49 saying they would choose to minimize their debt before increasing their savings. “We want Canadians to know that it doesn’t have to be an either/or situation,” Goldring says. “Regardless of how much life gets in the way, saving while paying down debt can have a significant impact on your personal balance sheet.” Photo copyright: jirsak/123RF Share this article and your comments with peers on social media More than half of U.S. millennials actively contribute to retirement accounts: survey Related news Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Tessie Sanci last_img read more

No unanimity in global regulatory reform, IFIC report finds

first_img Keywords Embedded commissions,  Best interest standardCompanies Investment Funds Institute of Canada Related news FINRA to focus on retail investors in its reviews this year Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Investment firms, dealers face MiFID II review FCA seeks consumer duty standards IFIC’s report, Global Trends in Financial Services Regulation, explored recent reforms in various jurisdictions around the world as Canadian regulators are currently contemplating a series of possible reforms to the rules governing client/advisor relationships. These include a possible ban on embedded commissions, the potential introduction of a best interest standard (at least in Ontario and New Brunswick) and a set of planned changes to various other rules, including the know-your-client/know-your-product obligations, conflict rules and business title requirements. IFIC, which has opposed a possible ban on embedded commissions and the introduction of a best interest standard in Canada, argues in the report that regulators in the rest of the world aren’t unanimous in how they are approaching investment industry reforms. “Different jurisdictions also have approached the issue of potential conflicts of interest in different ways reflecting differing market characteristics and suggesting that there is no ‘silver bullet’,” the IFIC report states. Although some countries have banned embedded commissions or adopted a best interest standard, most have merely sought to enhance disclosure, the report argues. Furthermore, the report adds that it’s too early to fully assess the impact of the more substantial reforms undertaken in certain countries. Canadian regulators have shown themselves to be divided on some of these issues as well. Recently, the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) announced that although they’re all in favour of targeted reforms to certain industry requirements, only Ontario and New Brunswick are prepared to go ahead with a best interest standard at this point.

FCAC delays report on Canadian banks’ sales practices

first_imgCanadian Press All five banks have denied the claims, defending their practices and insisting that they put the needs of their clients first. FCAC commissioner Lucie Tedesco had indicated to a parliamentary committee in June that an interim report on its review would be issued by the end of 2017 and a full report in 2018. But FCAC spokeswoman Lynne Santerre says that the commission has since determined that the better approach would be to issue one report in the first quarter of 2018. She says that to date, FCAC supervision staff has been reviewing thousands of consumer complaints, interviewing over 500 bank directors and bank personnel, analyzing volumes of bank documents and examining the potential impact of sales targets and incentive programs on consumers.

The Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (FCAC) announced the review in March, after the CBC reported some employees from Canada’s five biggest banks felt pressured to upsell, trick and even lie to customers to meet sales targets.
