first_imgThursday 11 March 2021 1:21 pm “The Governing Council expects purchases under the PEPP over the next quarter to be conducted at a significantly higher pace than during the first months of this year,” the ECB said in a statement after its regular policy meeting. The bloc’s fiscal support is also modest compared to the $1.9 trillion relief package approved by the United States Congress. “The ECB left the powder dry in their meeting today. However, the overall narrative is taken dovish by market players and this has pushed the euro lower against the dollar”. Growth is actually weaker than forecast as a new wave of the coronavirus pandemic and a painfully slow vaccine rollout are requiring longer lockdowns, challenging expectations for a rapid rebound in the spring. The widely expected move comes after a steady rise in yields since the start of the year that has mostly mirrored a similar move in US Treasuries rather than reflecting improved economic prospects across the Eurozone. “The ECB left rates unchanged as expected, confirmed the size of the asset purchasing programme and says it will speed up some elements of it.

Oxford Circus, Kings Cross and London Bridge are the most popular stations for using the technology.Craig Jones of the UK Cards Association said the figures showed how the technology had be “warmly received” by Londoners.“Analysis from our members shows that the launch of contactless payments on TfL services has inspired many consumers to use their cards for the first time. We hope that once new users experience the speed, ease and convenience of this payment method on the transport system, they will go on to use their contactless cards in a range of other settings, including shops, cafes and restaurants,” said Jones.MasterCard is offering free travel to Londoners who pay their fare using MasterCard and contactless payment today and again on Friday 28 November.Travellers could save up to £21.80 on their journeys across the capital on each of the days, automatically picking up a refund for their travel from MasterCard if they tap in using their card.

They were all at millionaire fund-manager Jim Mellon’s Christmas party last night, of course.The shindig took place in Mellon’s pub in Notting Hill. The Capitalist had the pleasure of meeting the man the boozer was named after – a regular at the pub before Mellon bought it (it was a Slug and Lettuce) who’s simply known as The Commander. The pub, on Hereford Road, had been Mellon’s local before he dived in and scooped it up. The Brand New Heavies hit the stage shortly after 7pm, singing their hits, including Dream On Dreamer, and entertaining the jovial crowd, filled with the investor’s family and friends. “I wish this was my party,” said the guitarist, as the crowd chanted back the lyrics. Wearing a Santa hat, Mellon boogied at the front with Reed and his posse. Farage however ducked in and out again before The Capitalist had a chance to say “how’s Steph and Dom?” But the best was saved for last. Three songs written by Mellon and his guitar teacher and performed by his friends, with Mellon taking the lead on the last song – getting the crowd to join in.

first_img whatsapp Sunday 1 March 2015 11:20 am A war of words between the government and the SNP has been sparked by plans to plaster the Union flag on big taxpayer projects.The plans that will be announced by Chief Secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander tomorrow mirror the EU’s practice of featuring the EU flag on infrastructure projects dependent on European grants. The logo will display the Union Jack and brandish the words “funded by the UK government. Explaining the decision for the new display, Alexander said on Sunday:I’ve prioritised infrastructure in this government because only long-term investments will support UK businesses and get the public finances and economy on a firm footing.It’s only right that we recognise the contribution of the UK taxpayer in supporting this economic growth, which is why I’m delighted to launch these Union Jack plaques.The proposals may seem tame enough, but the SNP suspects some underhanded political tactics are at play. SNP treasury spokesman Stewart Hosie dismissed the logo, labelling it a  silly gimmick by Danny Alexander and his Tory bosses”.He added that the logo won’t “cover over the fact that his government at Westminster has slashed infrastructure spending – destroying jobs and delaying economic recovery – including cutting Scotland’s capital budget by a quarter”.

first_imgCeva said its board was expected to propose that Rodolphe Saadé, chairman and chief executive of CMA CGM, become chairman of Ceva at the company’s April 29 AGM. Existing chairman Rolf Watter will become vice chairman. CMA will retain three independent members of the board of directors of Ceva for the time being.The only question remains then as to how the shipping line will manage its 3PL arm. CMA CGM claims there will be no change in the way Ceva works with shipping lines, but the forwarder’s ocean freight forwarding arm is expected to expand, while the pair will enjoy economies of scale and cost reductions, with synergies from shared procurement and services. Mr Saadé has made logistics a major part of his strategy and has pledged an end-to-end service for customers. CMA CGM is shortly to find out what it really means to run a 3PL. According to a statement this morning, the French shipping line will soon own close to 100% of the forwarder, which would then de-list from the SIX Swiss stock exchange.After CMA CGM’s tender offer closes on April 16, it could own some 89% of the shares, which will allow it to implement a “squeeze out”, and Ceva would de-list, probably in the third quarter.Ceva’s board has recommended that remaining shareholders tender their shares. The statement said “it is expected that members of the company’s executive board will tender their shares into the offer, and that shares held by Ceva‘s board of directors will be unblocked”.

first_imgA controversial bill introduced in the Florida Senate that would have added restrictions to which students qualify for financial aid through a state scholarship program has been put on hold.Senator Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala, introduced Senate Bill 86 last month.It takes aim at Florida’s Bright Futures scholarships, which financially help more than 119,000 students attend state colleges and universities based on their GPAs, community service contributions, etc. The bill aims to tailor who could qualify for the scholarships based on several changes, including picking students from degree programs that the state can “determine lead directly to employment.” Advertisement RELATEDTOPICS Florida nursing homes report COVID-19 infection rates nearly double the national average June 16, 2021 Advertisement “They want to put it through general appropriation, which, basically, will cap a certain level of spending,” said Sterk. “If we go over that spending, it’s going to be a first come, first serve. So, if your student is a rising freshman, you’re going to be at a disadvantage comparatively to a junior or senior that’s already in college.”Sterk also said the bill also would not have allowed a student to stack state and federal aid.A group of Lake Nona High School students in Orlando created a petition group against SB 86, called “Save Bright Futures.” Their website’s homepage reads “Bright Futures is in danger,” and their Change.org petition had more than 92,000 signatures when this web article was posted.One of the group’s founders, Kaylee Duong, said whether she goes to college in-state depends on how this bill pans out.“I still haven’t picked a school I want to go to, but the biggest thing I’m looking at is the financial aid they’re giving me,” Duong said. “My parents work so hard and I want to be able to get a scholarship by working hard, getting good grades, doing the volunteer work, getting the GPA to kind of ease that burden on my parents.”Her peer, Lorenzo Urayan, worked on the group’s website’s graphic design. He wants to pursue art in college, but he’s not sure if he’s going to be able to if this bill passes as is.“I’ve known that I’ve wanted to be an artist for a really long time,” Urayan said. “I don’t want to feel like some pressure to have to possibly give that up because I just can’t afford to get that education.”Local Charlotte County high school senior, Amy Enberg, who’s currently dually enrolled at FSW, agreed with that. She’s trying to eventually pursue a degree in english or journalism.“For a lot of students, it would be almost like it’s taking away everything they’ve worked for,” Enberg said. “The career path that I could take would be in the state’s hands because, like many people, I would need Bright Futures funding to be able to go to college.”Sterk said more than 78% of Florida’s high school students choose to stay in-state, largely because of how affordable it is and because of financial aid like Bright Futures.“I think that if we change it…we’re going to lose some really great, great students to other states.” The bill is stalled in the state senate as it gets rewritten.

Consumer spending accounts for 70% of economic activity in the U.S.“We think the sharp rise in positive coronavirus cases nationwide, which has prompted new restrictions and shutdowns in many states, has led consumers to be more fearful of what lies ahead for them and their families as we head into the year-end holiday season,” said Chris Rupkey, chief financial economist at global financial group MUFG.The consumer confidence index is set on a scale with 100 equaling the confidence level in 1985.In the leadup to the pandemic with the country enjoying unemployment at a half-century low of 3.9%, the confidence index had risen above 130. It stood at 132.6 in February but plunged to 85.7 in April as millions of Americans lost their jobs after the country went into lockdown to try to halt the spread of the pandemic.The index has bounced around since its big April decline but remains well below the levels seen before the pandemic hit.For November, the present situations index, based on consumers’ assessment of current business and labour market conditions, decreased slightly to 106.2 from 105.9.

first_imgGovernment of Panama Accepts IATA Travel Pass Miami – The International Air Transport Association (IATA) welcomes the decision by the government of Panama to accept the IATA Travel Pass as a digital travel credential for passengers to store their COVID-19 test result, which is a current requirement for entry into the country. Panama thus becomes the first nation in the region to accept this new IATA application.“We are pleased that the government of Panama will allow passengers to use the IATA Travel Pass to manage their health credentials when traveling. Our cooperation with Panama in adopting electronic health certificates is a model for the region to follow, especially since the country provides significant air connectivity. Reliable and secure solutions for the verification of health credentials are essential to gain the trust of governments, restore consumer confidence and achieve a sustainable recovery for the industry,” said Peter Cerdá, IATA Regional Vice President for the Americas.Luis Oliva, Administrator General of the Authority of Government Innovation of Panama (AIG), said: “The development of solutions that make travel easier is the result of a long history of fruitful collaboration with IATA. This latest joint initiative highlights our shared commitment to drive the adoption of digital health certificates that facilitate the resumption of international air travel.”In parallel to the Panamanian government’s acceptance of the IATA Travel Pass, Copa Airlines will run a live trial of the tool in late May. Once concluded, the airline aims to make IATA Travel Pass available to its passengers as a one-stop shop for checking compliance with the travel rules and storing the applicable certificates, while providing governments with full assurance of passenger identity and the authenticity of the credentials being presented. /Public Release.
