Ladbrokes: 2020 general election is now odds-on

first_imgLabour still appear no closer to backing an election, having so far rejected Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s calls to go to the polls.  The spokesman also declined to comment on whether the stipulated extension, to 31 January, would pave the way to agree an election.  Meanwhile, people are “feeling optimistic” about a deal before the Halloween deadline, Ladbrokes said, with the odds now at 7/2 that Boris Johnson will get a deal secured on time.  The chances of a general election in 2020 are now higher than one in the rest of this year, according to the latest betting odds from Ladbrokes.  Wednesday 16 October 2019 1:50 pm Reuben Stiell whatsapp But he could not confirm whether that meant after this Saturday’s deadline, as set out by the Benn Act, or after the nominal Brexit deadline of 31 October. That compares with 6/4 for an election being held in 2019.  Yesterday a spokesman for the party told City A.M. that leader Jeremy Corbyn would seek an election “once no deal was taken off the table”.

Most recent polls give the Conservatives a nine-point lead, with 33 per cent of votes against Labour’s 24 per cent. The Liberal Democrats are snapping at Corbyn’s heels, with 20 per cent of the vote, according to Britain Elects’ poll tracker.  Share Ladbrokes: 2020 general election is now odds-on by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeDaily FunnyFemale Athlete Fails You Can’t Look Away FromDaily FunnyFinanceChatterViewers Had To Look Away When This Happened On Live TVFinanceChatterNoteableyJulia Robert’s Daughter Turns 16 And Looks Just Like Her MomNoteableyPast Factory4 Sisters Take The Same Picture For 40 Years.

Senate Finance budget cut falls short of $300 million goal

first_imgEconomy | Southcentral | State Government | WesternSenate Finance budget cut falls short of $300 million goalApril 5, 2017 by Andrew Kitchenman, KTOO and Alaska Public Media Share:Sen. Mike Dunleavy, R-Wasilla, proposed a series of budget amendments during a Senate Finance Committee meeting on Monday. (Photo by Skip Gray/360 North)The Senate will debate a state government budget for the coming year that is $262 million less than the current budget.The Senate Finance Committee’s proposed cut is much deeper than the $32 million cut the House passed.But it falls short of the $300 million that the Senate majority caucus announced as a reduction goal this winter.Wasilla Republican Sen. Mike Dunleavy offered a series of cuts as budget amendments on Monday. They were defeated.“The purpose in this is, as a caucus the Senate majority has agreed to reduce the budget by 300 million real dollars,” Dunleavy said. “This is an attempt to get us as close as possible to that reduction.”One of Dunleavy’s amendments would have reduced the budget by another $103 million, without allocating where the cuts would be made. Gov. Bill Walker’s administration would have been tasked with making the cuts. Dunleavy was the only Finance Committee member to vote for the amendment.Senate Finance Co-chairman Bethel Democrat Lyman Hoffman said the governor needs clear ideas about where reductions should be made.“It’s been said, and the governor, governor’s office has said it, unallocated reductions are very difficult to manage,” Hoffman said.The biggest Senate cuts are to transportation, education, and health and social services. The University of Alaska would be cut $22 million. University President Jim Johnsen said the cut would be “devastating.”The full Senate was scheduled to begin debating amendments to the budget Wednesday, but delayed the discussion to possibly Thursday.Share this story:last_img read more

This is important to realize, as shelf clouds are oftentimes assumed to always be connected with damaging winds or tornadoes.The reason why shelf clouds are not always connected with severe weather revolves around how they form. Instead of being generated by a feature like rotating winds like a funnel cloud or tornado would be, shelf clouds form as a result of the influence of cool air surging downward out of the cloud and spreading outward once it reaches the Earth’s surface. This in turn forces comparatively warmer air out ahead of the storm to move upward. This motion cools and condenses the air and forms the shelf-like structure that can extend for a long distance off into the horizon.When a shelf cloud is nearby you should be prepared for an uptick in the wind and a decrease in the temperature. This is as a result of that cool air spilling downward, out and away from the region of rain. If the storm is strong, that uptick in wind can be substantial. If the storm is generally weak, the gust of wind may be no big deal. Either way, you should be weather-aware and consult what a nearby radar is showing, as it’s possible the weather may go downhill with storms nearby. A free way to do that on your phone when you’re away from your TV is with the NBC2 First Alert Weather app here.last_img read more

Industrial Alliance earnings fall 3% in Q1

Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Canadian Press Canada’s fourth-largest insurer, Industrial Alliance Insurance and Financial Services Inc. (TSX: IAG) says its first-quarter earnings fell 3% to $64.4 million as premiums and deposits fell from a year ago. The Quebec City-based insurer said Thursday its net profit attributable to common shareholders amounted to 67 cents per share. That compares to $66.1 million, or 76 cents per share in the same quarter a year ago. Return on equity fell to 11.1% from 12.6% in the year earlier. Premiums and deposits slipped 6% to $1.86 billion from $1.98 billion. Still, sales were generally up. In individual insurance, sales increased by 17% to $53.4 million, with both the Canadian and the U.S. operations contributing to the growth. Group insurance sales grew 51% to $58.5 million. Individual wealth management sales fell to $363.7 million, reflecting softer demand in the first two months of the year. “Our results also benefited from stronger equity markets in the first quarter as well as a tax recovery,” said Yvon Charest, president and chief executive officer. “Policyholder experience for mortality was favourable in both the individual and group sectors, however, the level of claims for long-term disability benefits was higher than expected. We have therefore taken steps to reverse this situation by implementing an action plan that includes revised pricing together with proactive claims management.” Shares fell nearly 5% or $1.45 to $27.93 Thursday on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

RSH data shows homes owned by private registered providers reach 3 million mark

RSH data shows homes owned by private registered providers reach 3 million mark The Regulator of Social Housing today published statistics about the social housing sector, including stock ownership and rents as at 31 March 2020.This is the first time that we have produced local authority statistics, and combined statistics for local authority and private registered provider stock alongside the private registered provider statistics.Returns from registered providers of social housing show the sector as a whole had 4.4 million social housing homes in 2020, with more than 60% owned by private registered providers and the remainder owned by local authorities. When non-social housing stock is included, private registered providers reported owning more than 3 million homes for the first time.Looking across all providers, there has been a slight increase (0.3%) in low cost rental stock since 2019, with the reported increase in Affordable Rent units higher than the reported decrease in social rent units (reasons for which include sales to tenants (such as Right to Buy) and conversions to Affordable Rent.The stock owned by for-profit private registered providers nearly doubled over the year, although the number of units remains low at just over 9,000. The increase in low cost home ownership units continues to accelerate with a further 14,500 units added in 2019-20.The data covers the final year of the four-year rent reduction and shows that general needs social rents have fallen by nearly 4% across the whole sector since 2016. The average weekly general needs rent across England at 31 March 2020 was £90.50 but there was considerable regional variation with rents lowest in the North East (£75.53) and highest in London (£111.74) and the South East (£101.12).Fiona MacGregor, Chief Executive of RSH said:The data from the Statistical Data Return and Local Authority Data Return shows how the social housing sector is changing and growing. This is the first comparable data across both local authority and private registered providers that meets the National Statistics designation.This data will help ensure we take a risk-based and proportionate approach to regulation across the whole sector, as we take on responsibility for regulation of rents for local authorities as well as private registered providers. /Public Release.

Ex-Apple chief unveils emerging markets smartphone play

first_img Tags Obi Worldphone, a US smartphone start-up targeting “discerning young people in fast-growth markets in Asia, Africa and Middle East”, unveiled its first devices, with prices starting from $129.The company, which was co-founded by former Apple head John Sculley, said that the products are “set apart by industrial design”. This was the role of San Francisco-based product studio Ammunition, which was also responsible for Obi Lifespeed, a custom Android user interface.Of course, Obi is not alone in targeting growth markets, and its price point means it will be competing with a raft of Android smartphones from vendors new and old. But the company is claiming to take “the best of Silicon Valley – innovations in design, state-of-the-art technology and high standards for manufacturing – and fused them into beautiful, powerful tools at attractive prices”.“Our efficient cost structure and broad distribution combine to present empowering tools that help our customers achieve their aspirations,” Sculley said.According to The Economic Times, in its earlier guise as Obi Mobiles, the company “failed miserably” in efforts to crack the competitive Indian market, having sourced devices from China which “had no differentiation or upper hand”.This led to the partnership with Ammunition, a company founded by Robert Brunner, who served a stint as director of industrial design for Apple.SF1Obi Worldphone’s flagship device, SF1, is powered by a 1.5GHz octacore Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, and includes LTE support.And the company has not skimped on specifications: it includes Dolby Audio support, 13MP Sony main camera, 5MP front camera with flash, and 5-inch full-HD screen.It costs $199 for the version with 16GB of storage and 2GB of RAM, or $249 for 32GB of storage and 3GB of RAM. Storage can be expanded via a microSD slot.SF1.5Also available is a lower-tier sibling, SF1.5, which is a 3G device powered by a 1.3GHz quadcore MediaTek processor.This device has a 5-inch HD (720 pixel) screen, 8MP main and 5MP front cameras, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage (with microSD expansion slot).Pricing for SF1.5 is $129.Availability is slated from October, “in retail stores in some countries and online in others”.Target markets will be “those with rapidly growing youth populations including Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Kenya, Nigeria, Tanzania, South Africa, Pakistan, Turkey and India”.

Heir to Candy Fortune Fined $550K in Billings Cocaine Case

first_imgHELENA – A businesswoman who is an heir to the Brach’s Confections fortune has been sentenced to eight months of house arrest and fined $550,000 for hosting drug parties at her $2 million house.Dru Cederberg, 52, of Billings was sentenced Wednesday by U.S. District Judge Charles C. Lovell in Helena.Cederberg was the latest person sentenced after being charged with maintaining a drug-involved premises in the high-profile cocaine case in the Billings area.Others were former Carbon County Attorney Robert Eddleman and his then-fiancée Terri Jabs Kurth, the daughter of the president and CEO of American Furniture Warehouse.Prosecutors said for about a decade, Cederberg hosted dinner parties that ended with cocaine being set out in the bathroom for guests.“I’m very sorry for everything I’ve done,” Cederberg, whose net assets total $14 million, said during the sentencing hearing. “I don’t deny that I was wrong. I’ve changed my life.”Lee Newspapers of Montana reported Lovell was inclined to reject a plea agreement that called for two years of probation and a $50,000 fine.“The plea agreement on its face is exceptionally lenient compared to the sentences imposed on the other defendants,” Lovell said, telling Cederberg she was more culpable than Kurth, who was sentenced to eight months in prison for giving cocaine to guests at parties.Eddleman and Kurth were convicted in 2009 of conspiring to maintain premises for cocaine distribution. They acknowledged using cocaine and making it available to friends at their homes in Billings and Red Lodge.Kurth also was fined $10,000 and paid an additional $50,000 to avoid forfeiting property under federal seizure laws.Eddleman was sentenced to 2½ years in prison. Prosecutors say in 2006, he undermined a drug case against an associate to keep his own activities from behind exposed.Lovell did praise Cederberg’s role in testifying for the federal government in cases involving Domingo Baez and others. Baez was sentenced to 15 years in prison for cocaine trafficking.Lovell sentenced Cederberg to two years of probation, including eight months of house arrest in which she is only allowed to attend medical appointments, court appearances and other activities approved in advance by the court. The judge added $500,000 to the fine and said it would have been more if he weren’t limited by federal sentencing guidelines.“But I think the appropriate penalty here is a financial one, rather than incarceration,” Lovell said, giving her 30 days to turn over the $500,000 before the court starts charging interest.“A prison sentence is not appropriate for you — at least not at this time,” Lovell said, citing mental health concerns. However, he noted that he believes Cederberg introduced the use of cocaine to a number of people who otherwise may not have used the drug.Cederberg’s attorney Mark Parker said his client had not used cocaine since 2008 and has cooperated with federal prosecutors for 2½ years.
