But this will be balanced by the introduction of a tapered levy that will, in effect, tax universities that charge more than £6,000 a year in tuition fees. Some of the money raised from the levy should be used to provide better career advice in state schools,?Browne will say, so that pupils will be better informed about their career opportunities on leaving education.Meanwhile, students from households with an income of less than £60,000 should receive a grant and a student loan, both of which will see a “meaningful increase”, while the whole system for providing financial assistance should be simplified.The amount of grant a student will be entitled to should be determined by household income but those from households with an income of less than £25,000 should receive a full grant for the entire cost of their university tuition, Browne will say.The report also recognises that asking graduates to repay loans for their tuition fees once they begin to earn £15,000 a year places an unnecessary financial burden on them. It recommends raising the threshold at which the loans become payable to yearly earnings of £21,000.The report adds tuition fees and financial support should be the same for part-time and full-time students.

Storm clouds gather as G20 leaders meet

first_img Storm clouds gather as G20 leaders meet Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Group of Twenty in Seoul clash on growth, currencies and tradeIreland moves ever closer to the brink as bailout fears mountOil price hits a fresh 25-month high of $88 a barrel on China demandIRISH ten-year bond yields shot to their highest level since the founding of the euro yesterday, closing at 8.6 per cent, as German chancellor Angela Merkel used a speech at the G20 summit to suggest that bondholders should be on the hook for losses rather than taxpayers if the country defaults.“We cannot keep constantly explaining to our voters and our citizens why the taxpayer should bear the cost of certain risks and not those people who have earned a lot of money from taking those risks,” she said to the gathering of world leaders in Seoul.Ireland’s debt is fully covered until the middle of next year, meaning it will not have to borrow from the bond market at the current high rates. But Merkel’s insistence that the new EU bailout agreement should force private investors to shoulder more of the costs has spooked the market.The International Monetary Fund (IMF) said yesterday that Ireland had not yet asked for help with its debt, but the prospect of a bailout looms if the republic cannot convince markets of its credit-worthiness. “The most likely outcome now is that Ireland will need to receive assistance from the EU/IMF,” said Gary Jenkins at Evolution, who estimated a funding requirement of around €43bn (£36.4bn) over two years.Escalating fears over Ireland came as the price of oil soared to levels not seen since 2008, with US crude topping $88 (£55) a barrel this week.Oil continued to hover close to its two-year high yesterday after rising 10 per cent since the end of October. The Organization of the Petroleum-Exporting Countries (Opec) forecast strong demand from fast-growing emerging markets. But rising energy costs are likely to provide an additional headwind for advanced economies still struggling with the ongoing fall-out from the financial crisis. Global growth was high on the agenda as talks entered their second day in Seoul but hopes for a resolution to global capital imbalances and currency disputes were already fading. Prime Minister David Cameron used a speech at Peking University this week to warn of a “dangerous tidal wave of money” crossing the world from indebted nations to those with huge surpluses. But there was little sign of a response. Yesterday saw the US’s proposal for current account surplus limits removed from draft documents and a Chinese ministry of commerce official declare that America “should not force others to take medicine for its own disease”.Advanced and developing economies have locked horns over currency policy at the summit, with China critical of the Federal Reserve’s recent re-launch of its quantitative easing (QE) programme. The Fed has committed to buy $600bn worth of treasuries in an attempt to stimulate the sluggish US economy, a move that former Fed chair Alan Greenspan claims amounts to an attempt to devalue the dollar. The US wants the G20 resolution to include a clause condemning the “competitive undervaluation” of currencies, in a clear reference to China’s longstanding policy of holding down the yuan to boost exports. In an open letter to G20 leaders just before the start of the summit, President Barack Obama wrote: “Just as the United States must change, so too must those economies that have previously relied on exports to offset weaknesses in their own demand.” He added that measures were needed to “reverse significant undervaluation” in certain currencies.But America’s position, coming so quick on the heels of its QE announcement, has prompted claims of hypocrisy from developing nations.The currency row threatened to overshadow other pressing issues on the G20 agenda, such as how to tackle the issue of sovereign default.

Mitie targets outsourced jobs

first_img SUPPORT services firm Mitie said it plans to cash in on growing government outsourcing in the next 12 months, as it reported a 12 per cent growth in pre-tax profit for the latest half. Mitie said yesterday pre-tax profit for the six months to the end of September was £47.5m, while revenue grew 14.7 per cent from last year to £918.7m, largely due to recent acquisitions. “We see a number of opportunities in the public sector, in social housing, at the ministry of justice, within education and property in particular,” chief executive Ruby McGregor-Smith told City A.M. The firm said in an update it was speaking to the cabinet office about taking on more public sector work, with the first contracts expected in spring 2011. Mitie, which already provides security in English and Welsh courts, is bidding for work including prisoner escorting, community service and property management. McGregor-Smith emphasised the strength of its social housing business, which makes up 40 per cent of its property management revenue, despite underlying profit in the division falling 8.1 per cent to £12.4m. “More consolidation in the sector and good organic growth across our contracts means we are very positive about the market,” she said. Seymour Pierce analyst Caroline de La Soujeole upgraded her rating from “reduce” to “add”, adding in a research note: “This morning’s results show that the company is clearly making good progress on its strategy of becoming a provider of integrated facilities management and … is now evolving in areas with higher growth and higher margin potential.” whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Share Mitie targets outsourced jobs Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoNight DailyHe Was The Smartest Man Who Ever Lived – But He Led A Miserable LifeNight DailyUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoThe Sports DropForgotten College Basketball Stars: Where Are They Now?The Sports DropUndoJournalPregnant Woman Takes a Nap – You Won’t Believe What She Discovered When She WokeJournalUndoZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen HeraldUndoMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesUndoWanderoamIdentical Twins Marry Identical Twins – But Then The Doctor Says, “STOP”WanderoamUndo Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’SportsnautTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family Proofcenter_img Monday 22 November 2010 7:16 pm whatsapp Tags: NULL KCS-content last_img read more

No InstallTaonga: The Island Farm GERMAN fertiliser producer K+S AG is buying Canada’s Potash One for C$434m (£266.8m), joining a rush for scale in an industry that will play a crucial role in feeding the world.K+S’s C$4.50-a-share offer, a 31 per cent premium to the average price over the previous 10 sessions, comes less than three weeks after Canada blocked a $39bn hostile bid by BHP Billiton for Potash Corp, the industry’s dominant player.Unlike that bid, K+S said its takeover would not be subject to a review under the Investment Canada Act. The law, which stipulates a foreign takeover must carry a “net benefit” for the country, was the basis of Ottawa’s rejection of BHP’s offer.In K+S’s case, the value of Potash One’s assets – as opposed to the deal value – falls well short of Investment Canada’s C$299m threshold, said a lawyer specialising in foreign investment at a large Canadian law firm. K+S said yesterday it made its cash offer for Potash One as it looks to build up new reserves to replace domestic deposits it expects will be depleted in about four decades. last_img read more

While everyone’s thoughts turned to beaches and suntans, Stuart wondered if they’d be sent to a warzone. While unleashing Stuart Baggs on Afghanistan is an appealing thought, I’m pretty sure the UN would class it as a war crime.Instead it was off to Hamburg to make and sell British crisps – but the thought of travel did little to improve morale. “I hate the Germans,” grumbled Christopher. Perhaps best he doesn’t lead this time. Instead Chris nominated himself, rousing the troops with a speech that began, “I’ve lost three tasks in a row now…”Stella lead for Apollo after being nominated by Stuart, part of a plan to protect himself. His logic wasn’t clear but he seemed very proud of himself. Leaders in place, the next thing to choose were flavours. Joanna took charge of market research for Apollo, a laborious task involving collaring a man in a German supermarket and asking him what flavours of crisps he likes. Presumably something got lost in translation as they ended up with stilton and paprika and a ham and pickle flavour that tasted like prawn cocktail.Synergy plumped for German classics, goulash and currywurst (the latter being so popular in Germany that a museum was created in its honour). This was as far as any of the candidates were prepared to indulge their hosts; their attempts at the language were limited to “Das ist wunderbar” and an increasingly desperate “Sprechen sie Englisch?” as they went door-to-door.Well, some of them tried. Laura sulked again while Christopher and Jamie took a more leisurely pace, sampling the local beers and switching a 9am pitch to a much more civilised post-lunch slot. Back in the boardroom, there was just time for Lord Sugar to expand on his concept of “export English”, whereby you slow down and take care over your words when doing business abroad. The challenge also gave this unlikely Henry Higgins some good punning opportunities; “Herr-brained” was used, but sadly no discussion of who was best and wurst. In any case it was Chris back in the boardroom. Having lost four consecutive tasks, he looked ready to fire himself but Lord Sugar was ready to give him yet another chance and bid Auf Wiedersehen to Christopher.

WikiLeaks founder says he has explosive bank dossier

first_imgTuesday 30 November 2010 8:18 pm Tags: NULL KCS-content WikiLeaks founder says he has explosive bank dossier THE founder of WikiLeaks, the website that earlier this week published a raft of damaging diplomatic and military cables, says he is poised to leak tens of thousands of documents he said could take down “one or two” top US banks.Julian Assange would not confirm which banks he has in his sights but has previously spoken about possessing 5GB of damaging information taken from a Bank of America executive’s hard drive.He said he will release the information early next year, adding it would almost certainly lead to an investigation into a bank.The documents, which Assange likened to the Enron scandal, is believed to be made up of “an overlap between corporate and government leaks”.A Bank of America spokeswoman said the bank is aware of WikiLeaks’ claims that it has company data, but said it has not been contacted by the group or seen proof it possesses any of the bank’s information. whatsappcenter_img More From Our Partners Brave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comSidney Crosby, Alex Ovechkin are graying and frayingnypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.com by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen Heraldmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.
