whatsapp MARKETS remain unconvinced that the Irish government will be able to pass the €15bn (£12.6bn) cuts programme it unveiled yesterday, with Prime Minister Brian Cowen lacking the votes needed to get the measures through parliament.Cowen’s government is already teetering, with the Green Party this week demanding an immediate election once the emergency budget is passed. But the coalition, which had a majority of three, has lost the support of two independent MPs who promised to vote against the 2011 due to be published on 7 December. The cuts programme is unavoidably controversial: it slashes Ireland’s high minimum wage by one euro to €7.65 and promises to cut the public sector payroll by 24,750 back to 2005 levels. The welfare budget is to be docked €2.8bn while university tuition fees are to rise.The president of the Irish congress of trade unions, Jack O’Connor, claimed yesterday that the government is “exploiting this devastating catastrophe to re-engineer our economy and society according to an even crueller blueprint which more effectively reflects their interests”.In addition, the public will have to pay more for most goods thanks to a two per cent VAT rise to be phased in over three years. Income tax bands and tax credits will also be re-jigged to be less generous to the tune of 16.5 per cent, while the carbon tax will double, pension levies will rise and a new local services tax will be introduced. All in all, the plan is to make €7bn of services cuts, €3bn in capital expenditure reductions and €5bn in tax rises. The government aims to front-load the budget adjustment, saying that its emergency budget for 2011 will make €4.5bn of cuts and €1.5bn of tax rises. But economists have voiced scepticism over the government’s growth forecasts:?it predicts an average GDP?expansion of 2.75 per cent 2011-2014, despite the likelihood that Irish economy shrank this year. And the budget cuts are seen as all the more unpalatable because they come on top of €15bn of budget cuts already made.Nomura political analyst Alastair Newton said the programme would “probably” pass because “the Irish are resigned to their circumstances, albeit coupled with enormous resentment of the political classes”.The cost of insuring Irish sovereign debt continued upwards yesterday on political fears, with credit default swaps (CDS) rising by 16 basis points to 595bps (a cost of €595,000 to insure €10m of debt). The cost of state borrowing also rose: Irish 10-year bond yields hit 8.9 per cent yesterday.

Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articleTrump Transition Beginning at USDA Hoosier Ag Today Outgoing Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack says the Renewable Fuel Standard will survive a Donald Trump administration because ethanol is too well-established in rural areas. Vilsack says the RFS “supports too many jobs” for a Trump administration to dismantle the law. U.S. ethanol production has more than doubled since 2007, when the current form of the law was enacted, according to the U.S. Energy Department. President-elect Trump told the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association earlier this year that the U.S. should increase ethanol mandates; but, in September, his campaign published a fact sheet calling for the removal of the biofuel blending credit system. His campaign later reissued the fact sheet without the language opposing the system.Vilsack said rural support for the RFS would be enough to withstand attacks. Meanwhile, the Environmental Protection Agency is due to release the final 2017 RFS by the end of this month. The statute requires ethanol volumes for 2017 to be set at 15 billion gallons. However, the EPA proposed earlier this year to set the volume target at 14.8 billion gallons.Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter Vilsack Says RFS Will Survive Trump Administration Home Energy Vilsack Says RFS Will Survive Trump Administration SHARE SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – Nov 23, 2016 Facebook Twitter

Frank Guinta (R-New Hampshire) and Rubén Hinojosa (D-Texas) has signed a letter to National Credit Union Association (NCUA) Chairman Debbie Matz asking for the 18-month exam cycle to be extended to well-run credit unions.In January, the FDIC approved an interim final rule that allows well-managed community banks and thrifts with less than $1 billion in assets to qualify for the 18-month on-site exam cycle. Previously, only financial institutions with less than $500 million were eligible for the 18-month exam cycle. The change affected more than 600 institutions, according to Comptroller of the Currency Thomas Curry.With the interim rule change, credit unions are the only federally regulated depository institutions that still fall under the strict 12-month exam cycle at the federal level. National Associatoin of Federal Credit Unions (NAFCU) President and CEO Dan Berger wrote a letter to Matz last month asking NCUA to lengthen the exam cycle for credit unions from 12 months to 18 months.On Thursday, Berger praised the efforts of the group of bipartisan lawmakers led by Guinta and Hinojosa.“We appreciate the leadership shown by Representatives Guinta and Hinojosa, and their colleagues from both sides of the aisle, in urging NCUA to return to an 18-month exam cycle,” Berger said. “Credit unions have been widely recognized by lawmakers and regulators for their prudent business model and for not causing the financial crisis. Credit unions are in particularly solid shape as an industry and do not require the additional burden of more-frequent exams. Extending the exam cycle for well-run credit unions will also help NCUA better allocate resources to address those institutions requiring more oversight.”The lawmakers, in their letter, noted that NCUA had made progress toward regulatory relief but stated there was more work to be done. In particular, they noted that Congress approved the 18-month exam cycle for banks last year and pointed out that such regulators as the OCC, FDIC, and Federal Reserve have begun to take steps toward an extended exam cycle for banks.

As per CJAR, the Delhi Police made a complete mockery of the “procedure established by law” in arresting the 21-yrs old activist and also deprived her of the right to life and liberty. The organization has stated that Disha should immediately be released from Police custody and appropriate action should be taken against the errant Police officers. The organization has also urged the Delhi High Court to take suo moto cognizance of the matter and initiate action against the Magistrate who casually remanded her to Police custody. Background Disha Ravi was arrested in an FIR registered by the Delhi Police on February 4 over a ‘toolkit’ shared by international climate activist Greta Thunberg about the farmers protests in Twitter. The case against unnamed persons was registered on charges of criminal conspiracy, sedition and various other sections of the Indian Penal Code. She arrested from her house located within Soladevanahalli police station limits in Bengaluru by a Special Cell of the Delhi Police on Saturday. Delhi Police said that Disha Ravi is an Editor of the Toolkit Google Doc & key conspirator in document’s formulation & dissemination. A Delhi Magistrate on Sunday remanded her to 5-day custody of the Delhi police in a case registered over the “toolkit” shared by international activist Greta Thunberg related to the farmer’s protest on social media Statement As per CJAR, the allegations against Disha are “absurd” and are an attempt to “criminalize dissent and protest”. It is stated that the Delhi Police did not follow any of the guidelines laid down by the Supreme Court in Arnesh Kumar v State of Bihar (2014) and even violated the Constitutional mandate when it comes to arrest. As per the organization, “Being “arrested” from Bengaluru, she should have been produced before the competent court in Bengaluru for obtaining transit remand since she is being moved between states, but was not. She was instead produced before the Duty Magistrate in Patiala House Court in Delhi – by no means the “nearest magistrate” as required by clause (2) of Article 22. She also did not have an opportunity to seek legal counsel nor was one provided to her, in breach of clause (1) of Article 22.” It is stated that such illegal actions by the Delhi Police would amount to a kidnapping under the pretense of law. The organization further noted the Judicial Magistrate, who remanded Disha to 5-days Police custody, completely abdicated his duty of upholding the procedure established by law. The organization said, “Magistrates have an important constitutional role to play under Article 22 to ensure that any detention by the police is strictly in accordance with the law and procedure. However, the concerned Magistrate has performed their task in a mechanical manner that has resulted in a serious violation of human rights. Such an attitude among the judiciary renders the valuable right under Article 22(2) a virtual nullity and must be deprecated in the strongest possible manner. Such behaviour is regrettably common and requires judges and police being answerable and accountable for treating matters of life and liberty in a routine and casual manner.” The organization has therefore called upon the authorities to immediately release Disha Ravi from alleged illegal detention and take disciplinary action against the concerned officers, failing which, it has urged the Delhi High Court to take immediate, suo motu cognizance of the matter and initiate disciplinary action against the concerned Magistrate. “We call upon courts and judicial authorities across the country to properly sensitize and train magistrates in the performance of their constitutional duties,” the organization added.

Arrangementsfor working parents in the UK are not as generous as those of Europeancompetitors. In those countries statutory paternity leave and parental leaveare not the novelty they are in the UK and have been in place for a number ofyears, and they are also offered with some pay. Childcare provision is bettertoo. However,when it comes to formal equal opportunities policies as a whole, UK employersare keeping pace with, and even overtaking, other European organisations. Nineout of 10 UK employers have a written equality policy. Only Swedish employersare more systematic in this area, and they are obliged to do so by law. Interestingly,French employers who are bound by one of the earliest attempts to establishworkplace equality between men and women, including an annual equality plan,clearly have little pressure put on them to comply. But also countries generally associated with an activecommitment to workplace equality, such as the other Nordic economies, areusually much less likely to do this in a framework of written equalitypolicies.UKorganisations are also more likely than employers in most other Europeancountries to include sex, race and disability discrimination in their formalequality policies. Elsewhere such policies are more likely to focus exclusivelyon gender. Why such differences? TheUK approach reflects closer links with the US tradition in that race is coveredas opposed to only gender inequality. And, as in the US, apart from equalitylaw, employment statute is comparatively minimal. The absence of stronglegislation in the field of dismissal, trade union rights or statutorilyenforced collective bargaining has made equality of opportunity litigation andawareness much greater.TheCranet Survey on International Strategic Human Resource Management is anindependent comparative study coordinated by Cranfield School of Management. Itis conducted by a network of 30 business schools globally. In the 1999-2000round of the survey, 4,500 organisations in western and central Europe with 200or more employees responded.

Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Tags Ron Perelman with 27-33, 35 and 41 East 62nd Street (Getty; Google Maps)Last year, billionaire Ron Perelman — troubled by since-resolved debt from Revlon and a tumbling net worth — sought to “clean house and simplify.”That kicked off a sale of his assets, including artwork, one of his three Gulfstream jets and several high-priced homes, with some proceeds intended to pay down debt he had personally guaranteed.Now, one of Perelman’s lenders is moving to sell defaulted loans with a balance of $193 million, The Real Deal has learned.A Cushman & Wakefield capital markets team is marketing the Citibank notes secured by three of Perelman’s adjacent properties on East 62nd Street, including his duplex residence. The brokerage and Citibank both declined to comment on the sale.A spokesperson for Perelman’s investment firm, MacAndrews & Forbes, said the issue is related to “appraisals that were done in June 2020 during the pandemic,” adding that, “we are in a commercial dispute over certain terms of our bank agreements and the use of flawed appraisals.”The three-mixed use buildings at 27-33, 35 and 41 East 62nd Street total 106,000 square feet and are subject to a master lease. The properties include Perelman’s sprawling duplex penthouse; a restaurant, Fleming, which he opened in 2018; and MacAndrews & Forbes’ offices.The loans, which mature on Aug. 31, 2023, are backed by “sponsorships’ guarantees,” which the marketing materials for the “East 62nd Street Townhouse Collection” say can only be accessed after signing a confidentiality agreement. The notes can be purchased individually or collectively.Perelman’s art and antiques do not serve as collateral for the loan, according to earlier mortgage documents.Perelman acquired the three properties over several decades. The 10-story building at 27-33 East 62nd Street was previously an apartment building that Perelman eventually converted to mixed-use. He paid $120 million for the property in 2014, and took out a $110 million loan in 2018 that included $41 million in new financing. The building is responsible for approximately $103 million of the outstanding debt.No. 35 is a six-story property that’s home to the offices of MacAndrews & Forbes. Perelman bought this building in 1989, and it accounts for approximately $52 million in outstanding debt. The final property, No. 41, is responsible for just under $38 million in debt.Perelman’s businesses have been negatively affected by the pandemic, leading to the shedding of his personal and professional assets.“I have been very public about my intention to reduce leverage, streamline operations, sell some assets and convert those assets to cash in order to seek new investment opportunities and that is exactly what we are doing,” he said in a statement last year.Those assets include two properties on East 63rd Street, which are being marketed by Serena Boardman of Sotheby’s International Realty. Perelman was reportedly seeking $65 million for the larger of the two buildings, and $10 million for the other. Boardman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.Last fall, he was also reportedly seeking a buyer for “The Creeks,” a 57-acre estate in East Hampton, via a whisper listing for $180 million. Perelman’s spokesperson denies the property was ever for sale. Share via Shortlink citibankCommercial Real EstateMortgagesReal Estate FinanceRon Perelman
