Eurobond argument ignites

first_img EUROZONE leaders are locked in a dispute about whether to issue region-wide bonds, even as the European Central Bank (ECB) steps up its intervention in the bond markets to try and stem the rise of gilt yields.Luxembourg Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker and Italian finance minister Giulio Tremonti yesterday called for the creation of Eurozone bonds to shore up the “irreversibility of the euro”, but the idea immediately drew heavy fire.German chancellor Angela Merkel declared that the idea would go against current EU treaties while Austrian finance minister Josef Proell said: “I am very, very critical of the eurobond idea. It can’t be that each country, which like Austria has run a disciplined economy, has to pay up.”The argument follows the announcement last week that the Eurozone’s bailout fund will issue €5bn-€8bn (£4.2bn-£6.8bn) of euro-denominatd bonds in January. Some see the action as a precursor to the creation of a single Eurozone sovereign debt market. But Germany is likely to strongly resist: its borrowing costs are currently 2.85 per cent for 10-year debt, versus 4.5 per cent for Italy, while a Eurozone bond yield would be likely to sit in between, increasing German costs.Meanwhile, the ECB continued its intervention in secondary bond markets in a desperate bid to stop the rise of peripheral Eurozone debt yields. Figures released yesterday reveal that it bought €1.97bn’s worth of bonds in the week up to 3 December.However, the intervention is a far cry from its dramatic actions in May, when it soaked up €16.5bn of bonds in one week. Economists are doubtful that the Bank can achieve anything more than a temporary respite.

ComeOn expects home advantage in Sweden

World sevens stars heading to Chester

first_img“The big thing we’re doing that no one else does in gyms is youth fitness,” says Greening. “We’re dedicating a session a day to 11- to 18-year-olds, to get them moving and into the right programme. In the States they start as young as eight. We have one coach between three people, so you’re always monitored, always supported. The youth stuff is big and we really want to push that because no one’s doing that in the UK.“And being based at a rugby club we’ve got 12 pitches at our disposal, so we can have camps for schools and training camps for teams.”“We want to push youth fitness. In the States they start as young as eight”After retiring because of a foot injury in 2005, Greening lived in Singapore for three years, working for Standard Chartered bank. He returned to the UK and coached London Welsh and London Scottish as well as Scotland Sevens, before landing a job with USA Sevens where he works alongside Mike Friday. As a high-performance coordinator, he spends about half of his year in the States.He’s passionate about improving the fitness of every type of person, elite or otherwise.“We have a huge range of customers. We have a lot of academy fitness guys, such as hockey, netball, cricket and rugby, people from all the clubs in the area, and then demographically it ranges from mums who do a class after dropping off their kids at school to Gareth Evans, an Olympian powerlifter who did his six weeks pre-Commonwealth Games with us.Rising force: Ireland have made big strides in sevens, beating USA and England in June (Action Plus/Getty)“We’ve got a couple of professional footballers to some very overweight dads. It’s for anyone who’s serious about their health, fitness or sport.“The app is game-changing because people join gyms and just get left alone. They see Kim Kardashian do something the night before or they do six days a week and they never lose weight, because they don’t know what they’re doing. Show them the app, that’s the game-changer.”Greening still follows Wasps and goes to most of England home games. “I’ve been down to training a few times, I’ve spoken to Eddie (Jones) and a lot of his coaching staff. So yeah, I keep quite close to that.“Eddie’s record of 20-odd wins on the bounce speaks volumes. It’s interesting, I’m quite close to some of the Kiwi boys and they think it (recent defeats) couldn’t be any better for England ahead of the World Cup. They see England as a big threat because they know things will change. We won’t be complacent. It’s good timing for us. I think Eddie will shake things up.”Good job: Eddie Jones, pictured at St James’ Park, is doing all the right things, says Greening (Getty)And his take on the hooker berth? “I like Jamie George, I like Dylan Hartley. I don’t see much else, that’s the problem. If you could mould them together you’d have a great hooker. The way Dylan is solid to start with and then bring George (on), with how he plays, it’s nice having competition, it’s what it’s all about.“Those two need to keep fighting it out because it’s crucial that people don’t get comfortable. You might mix it up a bit (in terms of who starts) but keeping them competitive is good for both of them. If we can get that in most positions we’re in a very good place.” USA and England are among six national sevens teams set to train at Phil Greening’s cutting-edge gym and compete in a tournament at Chester RUFC on 6-7 October World sevens stars heading to ChesterA fitness training facility in Chester will next week play host to some of the world’s best sevens players. Phil Greening has invited the national teams of USA, England, Ireland, Spain, France and Germany to train and compete in the Cheshire city.The former England hooker runs The Athlete Factory, which is set in the grounds of Chester RUFC. The sevens players will use the gym’s state-of-the-art facilities and take part in a tournament on the Hare Lane club’s pitches on 6-7 October.Greening, who also helps coach USA Sevens, said: “These are the teams that play on the HSBC World Rugby Sevens circuit. We’ll have Olympians, World Cup medalists and men like the world’s fastest rugby player in Carlin Isles, World Sevens Player of the Year Perry Baker, World Series leading try-scorer Dan Norton and many more.“The teams will make use of our world-class facilities, including our cryotherapy chamber, and also engage with local schools to promote sport and exercise to children.”The tournament is open to the public, with free admission. Each team plays three 20-minute games a day, with rounds of games starting at 10am, 1pm and 4pm.He’s got wheels! Carlin Isles shows his pace for USA Sevens, one of the sides visiting the Chester facilityGreening won 24 England caps from 1996-2001 and might have become a Test Lion in 2001 but for a tour-ending injury. His path towards becoming a professional fitness trainer was spearheaded by Craig White and Paul Stridgeon at Wasps, and later he briefly oversaw the Scotland Sevens programme.“In Scotland I had to do everything – the nutrition, the sports performance, I did various courses on that – and that kick-started everything really. More of my coaching career ignited and it’s been a passion ever since,” he says.As is often the case, there was an element of chance to how Greening came to set up a gym in Cheshire. His wife’s parents are from the area, so on a visit he googled to find the nearest rugby club and, finding it was Chester, went along. He got chatting and discovered the club was looking to put a new gym in. Greening eventually leased some land and built his facility from scratch.“It’s been a long road. It opened in February,” says Greening, 42. “Elite sport we do in a certain way. Why can’t everyone else train like an elite athlete? It’s really the knowledge and the programming that gets results.New venture: Greening is applying the elite training methods he learnt during his pro rugby career“When you sign up to a normal gym, you basically just get keys to the door. There’s no support, there’s no programming, there’s nothing. So basically, and this is what we’re going to do with every facility we open, is everyone gets a programme on a training app and everything they do – nutrition, the lot – is tracked.“Everyone who comes here gets support, like with pro rugby teams. In pro teams the boys get looked after and there’s no reason why it can’t be done like that for Joe Public.“Our gym is designed in an elite way; there isn’t another facility like it in the UK. That’s the difference, and we’re trying to bring that sort of knowledge and the way you train, more functional training, exactly what you do with teams. Because the human body only works in one way and unfortunately you’ve got to train. There’s no magic wand you can wave.”World-renowned: Craig White (middle) will run some workshops at The Athlete Factory (Getty)Greening’s team of experts include Craig White, one of rugby’s most renowned high-performance coaches; Ryan Gibney, who worked with Warrington Wolves and as high-performance manager for Georgia; and Andrew Wood, whose diverse experiences include preparing Azerbaijan’s Olympic wrestlers in Rio. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Organiser: Phil Greening, part of USA Sevens’ coaching team, has invited teams ahead of the World Series Greening adds: “I think the world of Eddie, I think he’s got everything right. His attention to detail and the way he conducts himself with the team is fantastic. Even when they were winning (every game) he would say some people didn’t play that well, he’d always put that little doubt in players’ minds. Is he talking about me? They don’t know and I think that’s brilliant. Keep them on their toes, he’s brilliant at that.”For more information about The Athlete Factory, call 01244 261368 or email [email protected]last_img read more

Altogether, 320 tubes will be used in the NZ$5.3 million (US$4.34 million) cathedral, which is the brainchild of Japanese architect Shigeru Ban.Completion of the A-frame cathedral – originally tipped for December – has been delayed by rain and now looks unlikely before February.More than 17 suppliers and contractors have given almost NZ$1 million (US$0.82 million) worth of time, labor and materials to its construction.The generosity of these businesses has made a huge difference to getting the project off the ground, says the Rev. Craig Dixon, spokesman for the cathedral.“Insurance from ChristChurch Cathedral covers NZ$4 million [US$3.28 million] of the build; however we still require a further NZ$1.3 million [US$1.07 million] in fundraising, despite the donations from suppliers and contractors.”Naylor Love project manager Stephen Lynch says the cardboard design is his “most challenging operation” in 25 years in the construction industry.“It’s an amazing concept and it’s amazing engineering to get that concept to work,” he told the NZ Herald.Meanwhile, contractor Naylor Love and cathedral staff have organized a working bee to paint the cardboard tubes on Sept. 24.The tubes need three layers of polyurethane for additional waterproofing, even though they will be covered by a polycarbonate roof.Over the next four weeks, laminate beams from the North Island to be inserted in the tubes. Construction of the cathedral will then begin off-site and the frame erected before Christmas.

Florida Association of Counties: Don’t get swindled by Amendment 1

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Opinion/AnalysisBy Hendry County Commissioner Karson Turner, and endorsed by the Florida Association of CountiesIn an old New Yorker piece entitled “The Perfect Mark: how a Massachusetts psychotherapist fell for a Nigerian email scam,” writer Mitchell Zuckoff wrote: “Every swindle is driven by a desire for easy money. It’s the one thing the swindler and the swindled have in common.”Zuckoff’s observation is worth remembering as Florida voters head to the polls to consider a long list of Constitutional Amendments—the first of which carries the allure of “easy money.” Unfortunately, Amendment 1 is about as authentic as that Nigerian prince in your inbox—promising to “richly reward” you as his “discreet partner” with an overseas bank account.Hendry County Commissioner Karson TurnerTallahassee politicians are selling Amendment 1 as a “tax cut.” They’re betting voters fall for the false promise of easy money. The politicians aren’t after easy money in return, but rather “easy votes.” During the next election cycle, they’ll happily campaign on a tax cut that never happened—because Amendment 1 isn’t a tax cut, it’s a tax shift.Everyone agrees Florida’s tax system should work for all homeowners—not just a few. But most of Amendment 1’s benefits would go to a handful of homeowners while the rest of us foot the bill—including many citizens in Orange County.Amendment 1 benefits a chosen few by targeting tax breaks to properties valued between $100,000 and $125,000. That’s less than a quarter of Florida properties. For those of us with more expensive or more modest homes, we face a larger tax burden and are at risk of property tax hikes.At the same time, Amendment 1 represents a double whammy for our state’s job-creators. Everything from pet stores and dry cleaners to retailers and restaurants will face an increased share of the tax burden as well. What’s worse, is that businesses will be exposed to even larger tax hikes because a business’s taxable value rises faster than that of a home.If you’re a renter, don’t get used to your current rate. Non-homesteaded properties, like apartment complexes, will also face an increased share of the property tax burden. Landlords are likely to deal with their increased share by raising your rent.Florida government has always operated on the basic principle of Home Rule. Home Rule allows local communities to set their own priorities and figure out how to pay for them. Amendment 1 completely throws out home rule. If Tallahassee politicians want credit for a tax cut, they should do it the old-fashioned way: By cutting their own spending. Instead, they’ve devised a one-size-fits-fits-all scheme that leaves local communities with an extremely difficult choice: Either cut vital services or raise property taxes.What’s sad, is that Amendment 1’s sponsors are completely aware of what they’re doing.  They even suggested that local governments raise taxes to pay for Amendment 1. That’s like giving away free coffee—but charging 5 bucks for the cup. Even if communities don’t raise tax rates, those not in Amendment 1’s “chosen few” will bear a larger, unfair tax burden.Florida’s tax system is already messy enough. Amendment 1 doesn’t fix it, it makes it worse, more complicated and less fair for Florida’s families, small business owners and manufacturers.Don’t get swindled. Vote no on Amendment 1.

O2 Inside Line – Episode 10

first_imgFriday Mar 18, 2011 O2 Inside Line – Episode 10 It’s time for the last episode of the O2 Inside Line show as we head into the all important final weekend of the championship, with a Grand Slam up for grabs, as well as avoidance of the wooden spoon on the agenda for two teams.Over the last few weeks we’ve featured this segment as a nice way to get you behind closed doors within a top international team. While some might have felt it was a bit of England overload, we’d like to think that most rugby fans would still get some value from the insight provided, especially in the week leading up to a big match.In this case the clash this weekend is the England meeting with Ireland in Dublin, a game that will determine whether or not England pick up the Championship, and the Grand Slam.In this week’s Inside Line show Austin and Abi discuss their performance against Scotland, we experience more of the player-cam banter, and Tom Croft and Nick Easter answer your twitter questions while they attempt to draw a caricature of former England back, Austin.Hopefully you’ve enjoyed the segment over the last month, and if you ever come across similar shows from other countries, or represent an official organisation that would like to do the same thing on the site, please do get in touch and we’ll see what we can do.

Foster + Partners Reveals Residential Community Project for Lo…

first_imgCopyFoster + Partners has been selected to developed a proposal for a low energy, high-density residential community in Islington, London. The site is a 1980s business park that is to be regenerated into a residential zone of two towers and a landscaped park. The project will incorporate the arera’s planned high-rise buildings and is ultimately set to provide a new landmark for the city.Read on for more details after the break. Save this picture!High-Rise Residential Community © Foster + PartnersThe two residential towers at 250 City Road will provide the area with 800 new units.  At 36- and 42-stories, the two towers are taller than the surrounding buildings, but are stepped down in such a way as to blend with the existing low-rise architecture. The site is designed to create a comfortable and healthy environment that provides outdoor spaces, amenities, transportation connections and protection against wind and noise in the open spaces.  The site is interconnected with pedestrian routes, connections to adjacent streets and transportation links and shops and cafes to establish an urban quarter. The buildings are designed with a combined heat and power plant that can be connected to the local grid, photovoltaic panels, green roofs, and rain water collection systems.

#ReclaimSocial for positive stories of social good, urges Lightful

first_img Howard Lake | 6 February 2018 | News Examples of tweets supporting the #ReclaimSocial campaign Tagged with: hashtag lightful social media Best stories to tellVinay Nair, CEO & Co-Founder of Lightful, explained why the campaign had been launched.He said: “Charities and social enterprises have some of the best stories to tell, which is why we’re delighted to help grow the potential of using social media for social good – we certainly need that to happen now more than ever. We are humbled to see so many people getting behind the #ReclaimSocial movement, and this feels like just the beginning.”Lightful was founded in 2015 “to revolutionise the way charities and social enterprises drive genuine positive action through social media”. It was set up by Vinay Nair (CEO), Carlos Miranda (Chairman) and Johnny Murnane (COO), from Ireland, the US and Ireland respectively.  The campaign was amplified by digital OOH specialist Outdoor Plus, who donated six digital roadside screens for the message, reaching an audience of approximately 1.7 million people in locations across London, including Euston Underpass, Greenwich and Wembley Way.The screens are also sharing some of the latest live tweets of people using #ReclaimSocial, providing a real-time view of how people are engaging with the campaign. Tech-for-good platform Lightful has launched a campaign to “reclaim social media for good”, inviting individuals, charities and organisations to post at least one positive message a day on social media.Backed by organisations including Comic Relief, NCVO, the Institute of Fundraising and Whizz-Kidz, the campaign calls for an end to the overwhelming negativity on social media, the fake news and hate-filled trolling of individuals.The message reached an estimated 10 million people on social media alone within the first five hours.The online campaign was triggered with a Thunderclap in which multiple people and organisations ‘donated’ a campaign message to be sent at the same time via their Twitter, Facebook or Tumblr accounts.Lightful has its own positive message of taking action to counter the negativity. It argues that charities, social enterprises and individuals themselves often have some of the best, most positive and most powerful stories to share on social media.The campaign’s tagline was “There’s too much negativity on social media nowadays. Let’s reclaim social media for good”. The message was even presented to delegates at Davos recently. Ruth Owen OBE, CEO of Whizz-Kidz, said: “Social media is hugely important for many of the young wheelchair users we support, not only for connecting with their friends but also the wider world.“What’s more, Whizz-Kidz sees social media as a vital tool for raising the voice of young disabled people and challenging negative perceptions of disability, and for us #ReclaimSocial is an opportunity to celebrate the individuals and organisations using these platforms to effect positive change.” #ReclaimSocial for positive stories of social good, urges Lightful AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis18  137 total views,  1 views today  138 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis18 Political support coincidedThe campaign launched on the same day that Theresa May addressed a group of people in Manchester to mark the centenary of some women in the UK securing the vote.
