WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF LORD HUTTON’S RECOMMENDATIONS JOHN CRIDLAND | CBI He is clear that traditional final salary defined benefit schemes are not a viable way forward. Everybody needs to understand the true scale of pension liabilities. Every year there is a £10bn gap between what public sector employees and employers contribute and the value of the benefits that the state promises to them.ANTOINE BOZIO | IFSLord Hutton’s interim report on public service pensions recommended an increase in employee contributions in the short term. Any final recommendations should consider how cost effectively public service pensions attract and retain the desired calibre of staff in the public sector.PETER BOOTH | INSTITUTE OF ECONOMIC AFFAIRSMany of the suggestions for long-term reform of the schemes are sensible but the report ducks some of the crucial issues. We must put the accounting for public sector pension schemes on a proper economic footing. Furthermore, the full costs of public sector schemes must be borne by employers and employees.

Those donors pledged £240 million to the sector over the next five years”.He added: “charity trustees would be failing in their duty to their beneficiaries if they neglected to secure long-term, sustainable income streams such as these”.The Institute of Fundraising reported that it is actively engaged with the Home Office to develop a strong regulatory framework for fundraising within the Charities Bill.www.institute-of-fundraising.org.uk Tagged with: Institute of Fundraising Law / policy
Print Email WhatsApp Twitter NewsLocal NewsPrivatising Shannon Airport would be ruinous-Mayor of ClareBy admin – November 21, 2011 510 Advertisement Linkedin Facebook A private operator take-over would be focused on profits and not the strategic interest of the region.PRIVATISING Shannon Airport would be ruinous, not just for the airport, but for the region, according to the Mayor of Clare.Mayor Pat Hayes said that under no circumstances should a private operator be allowed to step in.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Minister for Transport Leo Varadkar appointed international consultants Booz and Company to carry out a study on future options for Shannon and Cork airports.But Mayor Hayes said that a private operator take-over would be solely focused on profits and not the strategic interest of the region.“The reality is that a private operator would opt for a lower number of services if that’s what delivers higher profits – the bottom line is all that would matter.“My concern is that, based on his comments so far, the Minister is only focused on making the airport profitable”.Mayor Hayes said that the privatisation of Aer Lingus is an example of the damage that could be caused in this kind of take-over, as the move had resulted in the loss of the Shannon/Heathrow route.“That was a calculated move by the airline to develop a base in Belfast in the misguided belief it would be more successful than Shannon.“They abandoned Shannon in pursuit of greater profits and it caused huge damage to us here. “That’s what we would be exposed to under private ownership, whether through full privatisation or a concession/lease option”.The Mayor believes that the airport must remain in State ownership and that a solution to its current difficulties lies in marketing of the region by tourism industries.“The recent ‘New Directions’ report by the Irish Tourist Industry Confederation showed that seven out of every 10 overseas holiday visitors to the West currently arrive via an east-coast airport or port.“That’s startling and shows to me that tourism agencies are marketing the east coast as the access point for the West and not Shannon, which from a tourism perspective is outlandish and from a Shannon Airport perspective even worse”.

Devon Magliozzi Joseph Wetmore, of Autumn Leaves Used Books, and Jay Sciarabba, of Trader K’s used clothing store, questioned the team about fencing, scaffolding and construction vehicle traffic that interrupt sight lines and accessways to their stores, and reminded the team of a prior agreement that work would stop on certain blackout dates, such as major festival weekends.Marc Macro, senior operations manager for LeChase, said he would work to come up with a reasonable project schedule and to mitigate disruptions to adjacent businesses in the meantime. He said construction will typically take place from about 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday, and agreed to communicate with neighbors via Brous when the team plans to work outside those hours.The Commons playground will remain closed while construction moves forward. (Devon Magliozzi/The Ithaca Voice)The question of when the Commons playground will re-open was discussed at length Thursday, but ultimately remains unanswered. All parties agreed the sooner the playground can open the better, but it is unclear when it will be safe to allow kids to play near the construction site. Mike Niechiadowicz, director of code enforcement, said he understands business owners’ frustrations but said safety is his priority.“I want to see the front façade completed prior to the opening of the playground,” he said. “I will make sure it is safe to open the playground, and I will take into consideration the merchants’ concerns and will work with LeChase.”The project team is still in the process of putting together a work schedule and project timeline. Ekman said they plan to complete work and begin occupancy in phases, with the building’s commercial space opening as soon as the end of 2019 or in early 2020 and residential spaces coming later in 2020. He noted that the site will be less of an eyesore sooner than that, though, after major structural work is finished.In the meantime, Brous assured neighbors she will post regular updates on the project website, including notices about construction work planned outside regular hours.Featured image: Transferring crane insurance between contractors delayed construction in February.

More by Devon Magliozzi Your Economy & Development news is made possible with support from: ITHACA, N.Y. – After several false starts, construction work on Harold’s Square is back in progress. LeChase Construction, which took over as the project’s general contractor in January, began work on Thursday and expects to be underway in earnest within a week.At a community meeting Thursday, project spokesperson Vicki Taylor Brous said the team is happy to be moving forward.“We’re excited to be able to turn a new chapter in this craziness,” she said.Construction was put on hold when the owners parted ways with their original contractor, Taylor the Builder of Rochester, in January. McGuire Development, which co-owns the project with L Enterprises, previously said construction would be resuming in February with LeChase at the helm. Work was delayed by issues related to insurance, however.Erecting the building’s steel frame requires use of the 300-ton crane that has loomed over the Ithaca Commons since last March. Transferring insurance from Taylor the Builders, who assembled the crane, to LeChase, who will now operate it, took several weeks, Brous said at Thursday’s meeting.Harolds Square on March 7, 2019. (Devon Magliozzi)Acknowledging that construction did not move forward in February as promised, Eric Ekman, vice president of development and acquisitions for McGuire, told the group of neighbors, “Our optimism was inaccurate, it wasn’t a lie.”Brous and Ekman emphasized that it is in the developers’ financial interest to finish the project as quickly as possible and said all the paperwork is now in place to move forward. An inspector will be on-site Monday to check the safety of the crane, and pending any issues, steel beams will be hoisted by mid-week, they said.Business owners who have been impacted by the project’s slow progress reiterated their frustration about delays and poor communication while they had representatives from McGuire and LeChase in the room.

iStock/nycshooterBy: BILL HUTCHINSON (NEW YORK) — It arrived at the U.S. epicenter of the novel coronavirus greeted with the fanfare reserved for the cavalry coming to the rescue and after treating 182 people the USNS Comfort discharged its last patient in New York City on Sunday as it prepares to set sail on its next life-saving mission.The sole remaining patient aboard the hulking 894-foot-long floating military hospital left the ship on Sunday, a spokesperson for Northwell Hospital, which is assisting in clinical operations in New York, told ABC News. It was not immediately clear if the patient will be transferred to another hospital or discharged from treatment altogether.The Comfort is to hoist anchor this week and head back to its home port, the U.S. Naval Station Norfolk in Virginia, where it’s expected to undergo maintenance, restock and prepare for deployment on the next mission, officials said.New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said having the ship in New York has been worthwhile, even as the need for it diminished as coronavirus cases didn’t reach the levels that had been projected.“I believe Comfort not only brought comfort but also saved lives,” Cuomo said during a coronavirus briefing last week.President Donald Trump sent the Comfort to New York in late March as the cases of the coronavirus, formally known as COVID-19, were surging in the Empire State, particularly in New York City, where hospitals were being overwhelmed by the more than 2,000 coronavirus patients flooding emergency rooms per day and the death toll spiking to more than 800 per day.“This great ship behind me is a 70,000-ton message of hope and solidarity to the incredible people of New York,” Trump said on March 28 when he traveled to U.S. Naval Station Norfolk to watch the Comfort depart for New York.But since the Comfort anchored at Pier 90 in New York Harbor on March 30, new hospitalizations have fallen to roughly 1,000 per day, and the latest daily deaths fell to 367, Cuomo said on Sunday.During a meeting at the White House last week, Cuomo told Trump the Comfort was no longer needed in New York.”The President sent up a Navy ship the ‘Comfort’ which was a hospital ship. Which by the way was very good to have in case we had overflow. But I said we don’t really need the Comfort anymore. It did give us comfort, but we don’t need it anymore. So if they need to deploy that somewhere else they should take it,” Cuomo said at a coronavirus press briefing following his White House meeting.The Comfort was initially sent to New York as a 1,000-bed hospital that was to only take an overflow of non-coronavirus patients to relieve the stress the state’s public and private hospitals were experiencing at the time. But on April 7, Trump signed an order allowing the Comfort to be converted into a 500-bed facility for coronavirus patients after Cuomo requested him to do so based on epidemiological models projecting a worst-case scenario in which 110,000 to 136,000 hospital beds would be needed at the peak of the outbreak.But as stay-at-home orders and mass social-distancing practices began to blunt the virus, the numbers of intensive care patients never reached the high-point capacity Cuomo anticipated, rendering the Comfort underutilized.The Comfort is expected to head back to Norfolk, Virginia, Thursday, a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) official briefed on the plan told ABC News.The FEMA official also said the 2,500-bed emergency field hospital built at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City in four days by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, is also expected to remain open through May 30.Like with the Comfort, Trump allowed the Javits Center field hospital to be converted into a 1,000-bed facility to treat coronavirus patients.More than 100 patients are currently being treated at the Javits Center field hospital, according to the Northwell Hospital spokesperson. A total of 1,085 people have been treated at that site since it opened on March 30, the spokesperson said.ABC News’ Josh Margolin, Joshua Hoyos and Christopher Donato contributed to this report.

Myriam Borzee/iStockBy MORGAN WINSOR, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now killed more than 345,000 people worldwide.Over 5.4 million people across the globe have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. The actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some governments are hiding the scope of their nations’ outbreaks.Since the first cases were detected in China in December, the United States has become the worst-affected country, with more than 1.6 million diagnosed cases and at least 97,722 deaths. Here’s how the news is developing Monday. All times Eastern:8:38 a.m.: Montenegro declares itself virus-freeMontenegro has become the second country in Europe to declare itself free of the novel coronavirus.Montenegro’s Institute for Public Health announced via Twitter on Sunday that the tiny Balkan nation currently has no active cases of COVID-19. The news comes 68 days after Montenegro recorded its first case of the disease.“As of yesterday, our laboratories have completed analysis of 140 respiratory samples, among which there were no new cases of infection,” the institute tweeted. “At the same time, the last active case met the criteria for full recovery.”Montenegro, which is home to some 631,000 people, has reported 324 cases of COVID-19 with nine deaths, according to a count kept by Johns Hopkins University.Earlier this month, Slovenia became the first European nation declare itself coronavirus-free.7:10 a.m.: South Korea to require masks on transit, flightsPeople must wear face masks when using public transportation and taxis in South Korea starting Tuesday, as part of efforts to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus while public activities are increased.South Korean health ministry official Yoon Taeho said masks will also be required on all domestic and international flights from Wednesday. Meanwhile, starting in June, owners of “high-risk” facilities such as bars, gyms and concert halls will be required to register customers at the door using smartphone QR codes to aid contact tracing when infections occur.“Until treatments and vaccines are developed,” we will never know when the COVID-19 crisis could end, and until then we will have to learn how to live with COVID-19,” Yoon told reporters Monday.South Korea once had the largest novel coronavirus outbreak outside China, where the virus first emerged, but appears to have brought it largely under control with an extensive “trace, test and treat” strategy. A total of 11,206 people in the country have been diagnosed with COVID-19, of which 10,226 have recovered and 267 have died, according to South Korea’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.Earlier this month, South Korea returned to a sense of normalcy as the nation eased its strict social-distancing measures that were put in place to curb the spread of the virus. The number of new cases reported in the country has generally stayed low, but health authorities remain wary of cluster infections and imported cases. More than 200 cases were recently linked to reopened bars, nightclubs and other entertainment venues in Seoul, the densely populated capital.6:23 a.m.: Russia surpasses 350,000 coronavirus casesRussia reported 8,946 new cases of COVID-19 on Monday, bringing the country’s tally to 353,427.Russia’s coronavirus response headquarters also recorded 92 coronavirus-related deaths over the past 24 hours, placing the nationwide toll at 3,633, which is considerably lower than many other countries hit hard by the pandemic.The daily rise in deaths has declined by a third after a record high of 153 reported on Sunday. Meanwhile, the latest daily caseload is down from a peak of 11,656 new infections reported on May 11, during which Russia registered over 10,000 new cases per day over a 12-day period. Since then, the daily number of new infections has hovered around 9,000 per day.Over the weekend, Brazil surpassed Russia as the country with the second-highest number of diagnosed COVID-19 cases in the world, behind the United States, according to a count kept by Johns Hopkins University.5:31 a.m.: Japan lifts state of emergency in Tokyo and other remaining areasJapanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe lifted the state of emergency in Tokyo and four other remaining areas on Monday, bringing an end to the restrictions nationwide.A government-commissioned panel of experts approved the move in the prefectures of Tokyo, Saitama, Kanagawa, Hokkaido and Chiba, all of which had remained under the emergency declaration after it was lifted for most of Japan earlier this month.The prime minister first declared a month-long state of emergency for Tokyo and six other prefectures on April 7, as Japan reported a surge in COVID-19 cases. He later expanded the declaration to cover the entire country and last until May 31. Under the order, prefectural governors asked residents to stay home and for some businesses to temporarily close, but public cooperation was voluntary. There were no penalties for failure to comply.On May 13, Abe ended the state of emergency in 39 of the country’s 47 prefectures. The decree remained in place for urban regions, including the capital, Tokyo, and the large port city of Osaka.Abe lifted the state of emergency in Osaka as well as Kyoto and Hyogo on May 21, following a drop in the number of new cases reported each day. Chiba, Hokkaido, Kanagawa, Saitama and Tokyo all remained under restrictions until now.The prime minister has credited the recent decline in new infections to the efforts of residents staying at home and practicing social distancing. He warned, however, that the state of emergency may have to be reimposed if infections increase.More than 16,500 people in Japan have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and at least 820 have died, according to a count kept by Johns Hopkins University.5:18 a.m.: US reports over 20,600 new coronavirus casesMore than 20,600 people in the United States were diagnosed with COVID-19 on Sunday, according to a count kept by Johns Hopkins University.The country also reported over 600 new deaths from the disease on the same day.The United States is, by far, the hardest-hit country in the coronavirus pandemic. 3:45 a.m.: Houston receives hundreds of social distancing complaints over the weekendAuthorities in Houston said they have received hundreds of social distancing complaints over Memorial Day weekend amid the coronavirus pandemic.Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s executive order allows bars to reopen at 25% of their normal capacity and restaurants at 50%. However, Houston Fire Chief Samuel Pena said via Twitter on Sunday afternoon that his department had addressed around 300 complaints of violation to the governor’s rules since Friday, adding that “admittance beyond approved capacity will cause events to be stopped until condition is corrected.”Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner announced 115 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 with one additional death in the city on Sunday, bringing the total to 6,640 cases with 126 deaths.Turner also said he saw photos and videos of people flouting the social distancing rules at crowded bars and packed pool parties over the holiday weekend. The mayor pleaded with businesses and customers to “be responsible,” noting that their behavior puts first responders at risk, too.“We don’t want to be heavy handed,” Turner said at a press conference Sunday. “If you work with us, nobody gets closed down.” Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

The Embassy of Israel has today released a statement condemning “antisemitism masquerading at politics”, responding to claims made against the Oxford University Labour Club a statement by Alex Chalmers announcing his resignation as Co-Chair of Oxford University Labour Club.Issued by Chargé d’affaires Eitan Na’eh, the statement reads “The Embassy of Israel is appalled by reports of antisemitism, intimidation of Jewish students, and support for terrorism against Israel at the Oxford Labour Club. We would not expect such disgraceful activity from any morally upright person – let alone students at one of the most prestigious universities in the world. Antisemitism masquerading as politics is abhorrent. It must be recognised as such and condemned by all.”Chalmers’ resignation and his claims against his former club have already been reported on in the Israeli press, with both Haaretz and Times of Israel picking up on the story.Earlier today, the Oxford University Jewish Society (JSoc) issued a statement on Facebook, saying, “We are horrified at and whole-heartedly condemn anti-Semitic behaviour in all its forms. The comments detailed in JSoc’s statement last night indicate a shocking pattern of hateful and racist behaviour by some Club members, and it’s of the highest priority that this be dealt with swiftly and lastingly.“Labour Students is launching an investigation; we will fully co-operate with this and encourage any of our members to come forward with any information that will assist the process.”OULC has been contacted for comment.
