German business confidence up

first_imgThursday 25 November 2010 11:12 am Show Comments ▼ alison.lock GERMAN business confidence continues to soar upwards, a survey released yesterday shows.Economists expected no improvements in the Ifo Business Survey for November, yet the index revealed an enhanced business climate for the sixth consecutive month.The indicator jumped to 109.3 points, up 16.5 per cent on the same time last year. It has now reached the highest level since the survey began almost two decades ago.Signs of a consumer recovery were supported by a 45 per cent surge in confidence in the retailing sector, while figures for manufacturing and construction were also up.Germany’s consumer revival is reflected in the survey, which recorded negative retailing figures until a sharp boost in confidence since July.On Tuesday the German economy received a boost from a similar measure of economic activity, the Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) which rose sharply in November.German GDP growth for the third quarter of the year had earlier been confirmed at 0.7 per cent.The positive figures for November offer some relief for German manufacturers, after the EU revealed that new manufacturing orders from the Eurozone fell by 3.8 per cent in September.However, the Eurozone’s woes are not all bad news for Germany, according to Jennifer McKeown of Capital Economics.The drop in the Euro has actually helped manufacturing in “export-reliant Germany”, she said. whatsapp German business confidence up Sharecenter_img Tags: NULL whatsapp 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 PastMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyWanderoamIdentical Twins Marry Identical Twins – But Then The Doctor Says, “STOP”WanderoamHistorical GeniusHe Was The Smartest Man Who Ever Lived – But He Led A Miserable LifeHistorical GeniusZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen HeraldMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan Times More From Our Partners Native American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.comlast_img read more

Intesa board set to back capital hike

Traditionally conservative, Italian banks weathered the global financial crisis better than many European rivals. Intesa Sanpaolo, Italy’s largest retail bank, already enjoys a core Tier 1 ratio of 8.1 per cent, which would increase by another 1.5 per centage points once the hike is approved. center_img 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 PastMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepediaZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen HeraldBetterBeDrones Capture Images No One Was Suppose to SeeBetterBeElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Heraldautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.com Share Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Read This NextWATCH: Shohei Ohtani continues home run tear, Los Angeles Angels winSportsnautYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofBaked Sesame Salmon: Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Prooflast_img read more

BP and India’s richest man are targeting this huge market

Image source: Getty Images. Although it doesn’t get as much attention as the US or China today, India is going to be a huge economy in the future. In terms of population, the country has almost as many people as China, and over four times as many as the US. With this huge population and the expected huge economy, India will need a lot of energy for its development.Given its status as a leading energy provider, BP (LSE:BP) is naturally helping. In 2011, BP partnered with Reliance Industries Limited, the company of India’s current richest man, Mukesh Ambani, to develop India’s oil & gas industry.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…In December of last year, that partnership crossed a notable milestone. Here’s more on the milestone and why I think it’s good news for BP shareholders.BP & Reliance Industries Limited partnership milestoneIn terms of the milestone, BP and Reliance Industries Limited announced in December of last year that the first of three deepwater gas projects has come online and produced first gas.Given how tough deepwater projects can be, first gas is a big achievement and reduces execution risk.The milestone is a potential sign of future increases in production. When they are complete, the three projects cumulatively are expected to meet around 15% of India’s gas demand by 2023.I reckon the milestone is good news for BP shareholders because production from the gas projects could help improve cash flow in the coming years. The British oil giant is trying to strengthen its balance sheet and transition into more green production at the same time. Having more cash flow will help with that.Having more cash flow could also help BP achieve its target of net debt of $35bn. Once the company achieves that target, management plans to use a portion of the excess cash to buy back shares.Bridge to a greener futureI think another positive from the milestone is that it makes BP more of a natural gas company. Although natural gas is still a carbon energy, it’s considered a bridge to a greener future by many analysts.The energy form is considered a bridge because it is cleaner than coal and it can fill in the gaps of renewables in many areas. Although they may be cost competitive in many instances, renewables currently still have gaps. Solar can’t generate energy when it’s dark and wind turbines can’t generate energy when there is no wind, for example. With natural gas, regions have a potential fall back fuel that can generate energy to fill in those gaps.Would I buy BP shares?Lately shares have risen because oil prices have rallied and the Covid-19 vaccines have been more effective than expected. Although oil prices won’t rally forever, I’d buy and hold BP.Given the expected return to normalcy in many parts of the West sometime this year, I reckon sentiment could continue to improve. In the future, I believe BP’s management has a good chance at remaking the company into a ‘green’ giant. If that happens, I think BP’s earnings will be more sustainable.  “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Jay Yao | Thursday, 21st January, 2021 | More on: BP BP and India’s richest man are targeting this huge market Jay Yao has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

first_imgPresiding Bishop reflects on Holy Land as pilgrimage nears its end Posted Mar 29, 2018 Featured Events Marian Conrad says: Course Director Jerusalem, Israel March 31, 2018 at 4:31 pm What a blessing to follow Presiding Bishop’s reflections this Holy Week, thanks for his spiritual leadership Holy Week/Easter, Presiding Bishop 2018 Holy Land pilgrimage, Middle East, Israel-Palestine, Rector Pittsburgh, PA Presiding Bishop Michael Curry preaches in the chapel of Al Ahli Arab Hospital in Gaza City on March 26. Jerusalem Archbishop Suheil Dawani is seated behind him. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Jerusalem] On Maundy Thursday afternoon, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry reflected on what he has seen and heard since arriving in the Holy Land March 23 to make a Holy Week pilgrimage.In the week that we’ve been here, we have spent time, and some of it in depth, with Archbishop Suheil and our Anglican brothers and sisters. In the course of our time we have seen and visited holy places where our Lord Jesus was born in Bethlehem, raised in Nazareth, spoke Beatitudes on the hills of Galilee and then entered Jerusalem in a procession that proclaimed that God has a better way for humanity than the way of power politics and greed and hatred.And we have walked the streets of Jerusalem where Jesus was unjustly arrested, tortured and killed – the streets where he willingly sacrificed his life for the cause of God’s love, which ultimately is the only hope for us all.As we have seen the places of his suffering, we have seen the suffering of the children of God today.We heard the cries of Christian refugees from Iraq, people who have lost virtually everything save their own lives, mainly because they are followers of Jesus.We have heard the cries of people in Gaza, where the church here provides an oasis in a hospital, and oasis in the midst of a war zone through a hospital built on the teachings and spirit of Jesus, where healing and care is made available to all regardless of religion, regardless of ethnicity, regardless of politics.We have heard the cries of Palestinian Christians throughout the land, who thrive only for equal treatment and kindness and justice for all regardless of race or religion.We have heard the cries of people in Palestine in the West Bank where the Diocese of Jerusalem is present in St. Luke’s Hospital and its clinic and its churches. Following the teachings of Jesus again, no one is turned away because of inability to pay or because of religion or politics or ethnicity.We have heard the cries of the Palestinian people in Jerusalem who yearn as all people yearn to breathe free in true human equality.We have heard the cries of Israeli youths whose longings are the same, to breathe free, safe and secure.We will visit Yad Vashem, where the end result of hatred and bigotry and inequality and injustice is there for all to see. Jesus sacrificed his life to save us from the sins and arrogance and indifference and injustice, bigotry, hatred; he came to show us the way, to be saved from the human nightmare.As we pray for the peace of Jerusalem, as the Bible teaches us, we must find ways to work for the peace of Jerusalem, which will be found where there is true equality for all, true justice for all and true freedom for everyone. Here it is clear that this is not simply an idealistic dream. It is the only hope, and we must not rest until it is realized.

I made a pilgrimmage to the Tent of Nations southwest of Bethlehem in May 2016 and learned that all the followers of Christ in the Holy Land need to speak with one voice to the desperate needs of the Palestinian people, and to stand with them for justice and peace in the continuing times of violence and hatred.

Milwaukee teachers: ‘Scott Walker unwelcome!’

We sent a message loud and clear that Walker and his supporters are not welcome in this city for their crimes against our students. It is criminal that MPS students receive thousands of dollars less in per pupil funding when compared to their surrounding suburban counterparts.

Bawa said the utility is asking these commercial customers to identify reduction measures that they can easily put into effect especially on hot days.The instances those measures would be in place include when the California Independent System Operator issues a Flex alert, or when Pasadena is concerned about possible rolling blackouts, Bawa said.“Because the operation of each commercial customer varies, PWP is partnering with the business to develop individualized curtailment plans that define minimal but effective changes, such as increasing AC (air conditioning) temperature a few degrees and turning off unnecessary lighting,” Bawa said in the memorandum. “These efforts can provide significant power savings given their large-scale facilities and operations.”PWP has also created customized messaging so each business could inform their employees and patrons about their conservation efforts, Bawa added.As part of energy conservation measures, PWP is promoting double rebates for residential customers until October 31. It has also doubled rebates for commercial LED light bulbs up to 75 percent of the project cost.With the rebate programs, PWP customers can switch to energy-efficient products and not only save money but also conserve energy resources.For more information on the new rebate promotions, visit www.pwpweb.com/savemoney.

But thereafter, their service was not at all good as promised. It was alleged in the complaint that ‘no additional classes and even regular classes were conducted properly which resulted in scoring bad marks and failing in all the subjects by her daughter in the unit test held at the school’ and ‘before conducting weekly test, the answers were provided in advance so that the students could score more marks’. The complaint said these issues were brought to the notice during the parent-teacher meeting. However, no fruitful action was taken by the institute except giving empty assurances. Hence, the complainant decided to withdraw her daughter from the institute and sought for refund of the entire amount. Defence of the instituteBefore the commission, the institute denied the allegations and claimed that it was providing quality services as per its assurance. It was also said that after commencement of the classes, the complainant’s daughter continued attending classes for more than five months as per records of the institute. His daughter withdrew from the course due to her personal problems as she was unable to cope up. Moreover, the complainant has not produced any documents or evidence to prove deficiency on their part. Anyhow, upon receipt of the refund application, the institute as a goodwill gesture agreed to refund the amount of Rs.26,014, even though as per the refund policy the complainant is supposed to get Rs.5,119 only.The institute relied on the decision of the National Commission in the case of Manu Solanki & Ors., Vs. Vinayaka Mission University and submitted that it is a well settled law that education is not a commodity and educational and coaching institutions are providing any kind of service and imparting of education by the educational institutions for consideration doesn’t fall within the ambit of service as defined under the Consumer Protection Act.  Findings of the forumFirstly, the forum placed reliance on the decisions of the National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission in the case of Manu Solanki and Ors vs Vinayaka Mission University and Pinnaccle Institute Engineering & Management vs. Biswajit Santra & 3 Ors.It accordingly held that:  “We are of the opinion that, any defect or deficiency or unfair trade practice pertaining to a service provider like ‘Coaching Centres’ i.e. OPs herein does fall within the jurisdiction of the Consumer Forum. Hence, complaints filed by the Complainant are maintainable before this forum holding that the Complainant is a consumer comes within the purview of Sec.2(7) of new CP Act, 2019 (Sec.2(1)(d) of old CP Act, 1986).”Secondly, the commission noted that the complainant’s daughter intended to discontinue coaching classes for the second term. But one Ms.Lavanya who is the OP.2 promised and assured that all the concerns of the complainant will be addressed and she will support in all ways like providing special classes for Maths and Physics and she also assured that in the first term examination at his daughter’s school to be held in the school in the month of September 2019, the child shall score 80% in all her subjects.So on the assurances by Ms.Lavanya, the Complainant made the payment of second installment of Rs.26,250. The commission said “This fact is clearly evident that, Complainant’s daughter attended the classes of the first term, but after making payment for the 2nd installment, she did not continue. In this context, OPs have calculated as per their norms and agreed to refund Rs.26,014/- but we rounded up this amount to Rs.26,250 which is the second term fee. Accordingly, the Complainant is entitled for refund of Rs.26,250 with litigation cost of Rs.5,000.” The bench led by President S.L.Patil held that the opposite party J.C.Chaudhry (Managing Director of Akash Institute) and Lavanya (Branch Head, Rajajinagar) be jointly and severally liable to refund Rs.26,250 with litigation cost of Rs.5,000, to the Complainant within six weeks from the date of receipt of this order, failing which, the amount of Rs.26,250, shall carry interest at 6% p.a. from the date of this complaint till the date of realization.
