Lord Hesketh added the contract was a “Looney Tunes” operation that was “about to turn into a classic British disaster”.Babcock, which is part of the consortium building the two £3bn carriers, immediately distanced itself from Lord Hesketh’s comments, issuing a statement at the start of trading on the London stock exchange describing the comments as “personal” adding that they “do not in any respect reflect the views of the company”.However, the statement did little to calm investors with Babcock’s share price falling 5.5p to close at 571.5p. By mid-afternoon Babcock had issued a statement to the stock market saying Lord Hesketh had resigned from the board with immediate effect. Babcock chairman Mike Turner, who was a combative BAE chief executive for six years until 2008, said: “Lord Hesketh has been a long-standing and valued member of the Babcock board, and over this period has made a significant contribution to the development of the group. We thank him for his contribution and wish him well.”Under last month’s strategic defence review, the UK’s fleet of Harrier jump jets will be decommissioned next year. As a result one aircraft carrier currently being built by Babcock will never carry fighter jets and will only be operational for three years. The other aircraft carrier will only become fully operational in 2020, when it receives a fleet of fighter jets from BAE.

Nothing is more precious to me than the free and independent press for which this country is famous the world over.”An Ofcom spokesman said: “We are pleased that News Corp has agreed in the proposed undertakings to place editorial independence and integrity at the heart of ‘NewCo’ and to underpin this with arrangements that secure full independent governance.”The decision was slammed by an alliance of media owners who say the move will give Murdoch too much power. A spokesman for the group, which includes Daily Mail publisher Associated Newspapers, Trinity Mirror, BT and the owners of The Daily Telegraph, said it is now considering challenging the ruling in the courts.Vince Cable, who was axed from the decision-making process after promising to “wage war” on Murdoch to an undercover reporter, declined to comment yesterday.The Murdoch empire has yet to be subject to a full Competition Commission for any of its media acquisitions. However, the Times newspapers have an independent editorial board in place.Last month Sky saw its profits soar 40 per cent year-on-year for its second fiscal quarter as it added an extra 140,000 new customers. Revenue for the period was up 15 per cent to £1.66bn. Net profit hit £179m. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Sharelast_img read more

Empty pews take a financial toll on many US congregations

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply By David King, Assistant Professor of Philanthropic Studies, IUPUI; Brad R. Fulton, Assistant Professor, O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs, Indiana University, and Chris Munn, Research fellow, IUPUIAs some 350,000 American churches and other houses of worship scramble to meet the spiritual and – increasingly – material needs of their members remotely, they are doing so on a tighter budget than usual.That’s because they’re missing out on the substantial weekly donations that support their work. In most American weekly worship services, collection plates are passed around to finance congregations’ activities. And congregations from coast to coast have stopped holding in-person services due to the coronavirus pandemic.In studying trends in religious giving, we have observed disparities by race, religion, size and location in the donations congregations receive. Just as COVID-19 is taking a bigger toll in many low-income communities, we believe that the same is true for congregations in those same communities.In our view, how COVID-19 affects religious communities will vary based on congregations’ collection practices, their ability to harness digital tools and the depth of their cash reserves.Collecting donations at servicesAmong all congregations, the average congregation obtained 78% of its total annual revenue from giving during its worship services in 2018, when we conducted a detailed survey about congregations’ finances.Almost all Christian congregations, which make up the vast majority of the nation’s houses of worship, pass collection plates during their worship services. For most Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist and Hindu congregations, however, giving occurs outside religious services.A digital divide for religionWe also found that less than half of all congregations, about 46%, had some type of online giving set up as of 2018. The share of congregations able to collect donations digitally was even smaller among black churches, at 31%, rural congregations, with 36%, and congregations with fewer than 100 members, also at 31%.In contrast, most large congregations and nearly all non-Christian congregations, were collecting donations online by then. Among congregations of all faiths with established online giving options, on average 23% of their total revenue came in digitally at that time.Saving moneyCongregations must consider multiple fundraising approaches at a time when many of their members who had supported them financially in the past are losing their jobs.Significantly, we found that 39% of all congregations didn’t have enough funds to cover three months’ worth of expenses.Meanwhile, most non-Christian congregations tended to have at least that amount of money saved up.Rural congregations generally were better able to withstand a short-term loss of funds than those in cities and suburbs, according to the data we collected.COVID-19 is causing an economic crisis for congregations throughout the U.S. However, we find religious leaders to be resilient, innovative and up to the task of leading their congregations and communities through uncharted waters in matters of both faith and finances.While some congregations will not survive, we expect to see many congregations emerge from this crisis bruised, but not beaten. This article is republished from The Conversation under a Creative Commons license.

The regulations required collective housing, with shared access and garage. Thus, we propose a two-dwelling building, with a unitary exterior image, a large brick box that hides two semi-detached houses, more or less twins, with large windows to the South, protected by a steel brisolei, punctual holes in the east and west walls and a large window from side to side to take advantage of the north light on the first floor.Save this picture!© Belén ImazSave this picture!© Belén ImazOn the deck a common terrace delimited by the side walls and with a vegetal pergola to protect it from the sun, occupies practically the entire floor, giving them back the free space they had before in the family garden, with an a small swimming pool and great views over the tree-lined neighborhood.Save this picture!© Belén ImazSave this picture!© Belén ImazThe houses being very similar, respond to the type of life of each one. The son’s is a house of contemporary open spaces. It is accessed through a small hall and from there to a large room where the dining room and kitchen are located, this 3.5m high room, is similar to the one that occupies the living room to the south, and separates the stairs and the toilet, that are located in the center of the plant. On the top floor we find the master bedroom to the south, suite with bathroom and dressing room integrated, very bright, with a window and a gardener that go from side to side. And to the North the space for the children, a single room that can be divided or communicated as needed, with a table, a window and a gardener that also go from side to side. The mother’s house, responding to the same scheme, adapted to the furniture, its needs and more classic tastes.Save this picture!© Belén ImazOutside, a large part of the perimeter is occupied by the common ramp down to the garage, and the rest is divided into small private gardens for each house, with a pergola to the South and a series of English courtyards to illuminate and give access to the plant basement.Save this picture!© Belén ImazStructural elements in sight. Inside we decided to leave the different structural elements in sight, as a measure of savings and constructive sincerity. Thus, the roof is the same forged of alveolar plate, the floor will be the polished concrete slab itself, the load-bearing walls of the facade will remain in brick seen painted white and the metal beams will be visible as a compositional element more.Save this picture!© Belén Imaz1PS // One pass system. By leaving all the structural elements seen as finishes, we had to think of an alternative construction method that would allow us to put all the installations in the structure phase, underfloor heating, electricity, plumbing, ventilation…We decided to build each floor in one pass, with a previous work of exhaustive definition, we were able to completely finish each floor before starting to build the next one.

Senators Aim to Reverse Supreme Court Ruling on Family Farmer Bankruptcies

first_img Senators Aim to Reverse Supreme Court Ruling on Family Farmer Bankruptcies Home Indiana Agriculture News Senators Aim to Reverse Supreme Court Ruling on Family Farmer Bankruptcies Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Aug 8, 2013 SHARE Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley and Minnesota Senator Al Franken have introduced legislation to reverse a Supreme Court ruling that has made it harder for family farmers to reorganize their finances when they fall on hard times. The Family Farmer Bankruptcy Tax Clarification Act of 2013 would remedy a May 2012 Supreme Court ruling that said despite the express goal of Congress to help farmers – the language inserted into the Bankruptcy Code in 2005 conflicted with the Tax Code. The Grassley and Franken bill clarifies that bankrupt family farmers reorganizing their debts are able to treat capital gains taxes owed to a governmental unit – arising from the sale of farm assets during a bankruptcy – as general unsecured claims. It removes the veto power of the IRS over a bankruptcy reorganization plan’s confirmation – giving the family farmer a chance to reorganize successfully.Grassley says Chapter 12 helps the farmer and the banker sit down and work out alternatives for debt repayment so a farmer can keep his land. He says there’s no question of the intent of Congress when the 2005 law was written. He says they simply need to ensure the plain language of the law says and does what they intended. Franken says the bill is a commonsense fix to ensure the law is carried out as intended so farmers going through bankruptcy can keep their land and repay the debts they owe in their communities.

The High Court relied on the judgment in Pioneer Urban Land and Infrastructure Ltd. & Anr. Vs. Union of India to hold that the remedies available to the allottees under CPA and RERA are concurrent.While considering the Special Leave Petition filed against this judgment, the bench comprising Justices Uday Umesh  Lalit and Vineet Saran noted that in a recent judgment [Imperia Structures Ltd. Vs. Anil Patni and Another], it was held that Section 79 of the RERA Act would not in any way bar the Commission or Forum under the provisions of the Consumer Protection Act to entertain any complaint on behalf of an allottee.”Thus, the instant matter stands concluded by decisions of this Court in Pioneer Urban Land and Infrastructure Ltd. and M/s Imperia Structures Ltd. In the circumstances, we see no reason to interfere in the matter. This SLP is therefore, dismissed.”, the bench said while dismissing the SLP.In M/s Imperia Structures Ltd., the Court had held that a complaint before Consumer Fora by allottees against builders is not barred by the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, 2016. “Again, insofar as cases where such proceedings under the CP Act are initiated after the provisions of the RERA Act came into force, there is nothing in the RERA Act which bars such initiation. The absence of bar under Section 79 to the initiation of proceedings before a fora which cannot be called a Civil Court and express saving under Section 88 of the RERA Act, make the position quite clear. Further, Section 18 itself specifies that the remedy under said Section is “without prejudice to any other remedy available”. Thus, the parliamentary intent is clear that a choice or discretion is given to the allottee whether he wishes to initiate appropriate proceedings under the CP Act or file an application under the RERA Act”, the court had observed in that case.Case: TODAY HOMES AND INFRASTRUCTURE PVT LTD vs. AJAY NAGPAL [r Special Leave to Appeal (C) No(s). 23386/2019]Coram: Justices Uday Umesh Lalit and Vineet SaranCounsel: Adv Kanika Agnihotri, AOR Manish K.
