In its governing council meeting today and tomorrow, the bank will discuss whether to ask for a capital hike. With Germany, now seen as the Eurozone’s paymaster, already indicating that it would back an increase in the bank’s capital, it is likely to have its request granted. The move would be a departure from Germany’s stance on other measures touted as possible solutions to the Eurozone crisis. Chanceller Angela Merkel has blocked other extraordinary measures such as the issuance of Eurozone-wide bonds, which was called for by the Luxembourg finance minister, or an increase in the size of the Eurozone’s €440bn (£373bn) bailout fund. As for what the ECB will do with the extra cash, a German official said: “I imagine the ECB would hope to strengthen its basis in order to show the markets that it was well capitalised, if for example, it wanted to buy additional sovereign bonds.”The ECB was forced to resume its special bond-purchasing programme last month as gilt yields spiked to record highs and threatened to tip the Eurozone into chaos.It bought €2.67bn of bonds on the secondary market last week in an effort to keep government borrowing costs down, but it has been reluctant to relaunch the programme on the same scale as earlier in the year.

EasyJet bets sales on business travellers

first_img Share Show Comments ▼ whatsapp KCS-content EASYJET will target business customers to boost sales, according to chief executive Carolyn McCall.The second largest budget airline in Europe is testing a Flexifare system, which offers business travellers preferential boarding, free hold luggage and the ability to change planes just two hours before flight time.“We have been testing this since November and the signs are positive,” said McCall. The service will cost around £100 per journey compared to £250 a trip offered for equivalent services by flag-carriers British Airways, Air France-KLM or Lufthansa.The airline plans to make Flexifare available on its website by the summer, to target its business customers that work in small or medium sized firms and book their own travel arrangements.Nineteen per cent of easyJet’s current passengers are business travellers. They pay on average between 10 per cent and 20 per cent higher fees because they book later than leisure fliers.McCall was speaking yesterday having flown into Amman on easyJet’s inaugural flight to the Jordanian capital (right), just 48 hours after protesters demanding reform clashed with government supporters in the city centre, killing one and injuring 100.But the airline boss insisted the route was safe to fly. “Jordan is stable,” she said. “The Foreign Office’s advice is that we can fly here and we will be guided by that.”The airline has cut 22 of its 550 routes in the last six months, with McCall clear that it would not hesitate to axe further failing routes.“You will see us being much more brutal about what routes work and what routes don’t,” she said.

Charities likely to have to tackle fraud even harder, say PKF

first_img Howard Lake | 22 June 2004 | News Tagged with: Finance Management Follow-up investigations by the Inland Revenue, Customs & Excise, Police or other agencies may soon require charities to face up to and provide information on these criminal losses. Charles Cox, partner at PKF said: “PKF recommends charities should review their ability to identify, monitor and deal with fraud, corruption, thefts and other criminal losses. If business processes are found to be inadequate trustees should take urgent action to improve them.” To prepare for these likely changes, PKF recommends that charities should: establish policies and a business culture that encourages reporting information about criminal losses to a central point in the organisation.hold an in-depth preliminary investigation into all criminal losses, so that if there is more going on than first ‘meets the eye’ trustees find out as soon as possible.establish protocols to determine when criminal losses should be investigated in more depth and to determine when these are reported to the authorities.build business relationships with professional firms that have the necessary expertise to investigate possible criminal losses so that they can obtain commercial, investigation and legal advice when they need it.The warning follows the recent disqualification by The Charity Commission of Peter Sainsbury, former head of the People’s Opportunity to Work Trust, for fraud.

In the past such business losses have been largely unknown to the authorities, say PKF, as some organisations have preferred to write off their loss rather than commit further time and resources to investigation. In future, however, this many not be such a straight-forward option. PKF says that organisations, including charities, will be required to report frauds, thefts, corruption and any other suspicions of criminal activity to the authorities through proposals outlined in the Home Office White Paper “One Step Ahead – a 21st century strategy to defeat organised crime” and through the creation of the Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA).

Sanctions or solidarity

first_imgA pandemic by its very nature needs a global response. It can only be addressed with a high level of intense cooperation and social mobilization. Every form of scientific and technological cooperation is urgently needed. The U.S. is the center of an empire built on and dominated by capitalist expropriation on a world scale. Washington’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic has been to increase ruthless competition, economic sanctions and war threatsA handful of banks and industries that operate on a for-profit basis privately expropriate goods that are socially produced by millions of workers connected to each other in global supply chains in 200 different countries. Only goods that are immediately profitable are produced, in a competitive and chaotic manner. Any other form of distribution and exchange — even in the face of a pandemic — is deeply threatening to U.S. economic domination of world markets.Even before the pandemic hit, the U.S. government had accelerated — through economic sanctions — the denial of medicines and food to one-third of the world’s population. During a global crisis, sanctions have put the entire world at riskWhat is increasingly obvious to millions of people worldwide is that countries with different economic systems respond differently in a public health crisisIn keeping with its principle of international solidarity, Cuba sent brigades of medical staff to hard-hit Italy, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Jamaica, Suriname and Grenada. Cuba has also developed and freely shared with the world Interferon Alfa-2B to treat COVID-19 patients. This socialist country has sent 400,000 medical professionals to 164 countries, and provided vital aid since 1963 in the most serious health crises.China is sending medical equipment to every country in Africa, every country facing U.S. sanctions, and economically developed countries in the European Union. Despite the paralysis of global supply chains, China is transporting tons of test kits, personal protective equipment (PPE) and ventilators around the world. Flights of PPE from China arrive daily in the U.SIn contrast, Washington blocked a shipment to Cuba of test kits, PPE and other aid  from the Chinese electronic giant Alibaba and the Jack Ma Foundation. The U.S. confiscated 200,000 masks en route from China to Germany, which drew Berlin’s condemnation, and took ventilators bound for Barbados. The U.S. ordered the 3M company not to export essential N95 medical face masks to Canada and Latin America, and ruthlessly outbid allies’ contracts for medical suppliesU.S. threats are so ruthless they can generate the opposite response, even among its capitalist competitors. Germany, France and Britain sent medical goods to Iran through INSTEX, a vehicle enabling them to circumvent U.S. sanctions on IranEuropean members of the U.S.-commanded NATO military alliance backed out of scheduled “war games,” including a practice nuclear attack on RussiaUnity needed in war on virusPresident Hassan Rouhani of Iran addressed the people of the U.S., saying, “The war on this virus can only be successful if all nations can win this war together, and no affected nation is left behindAnd Venezuela, facing the harshest U.S. sanctions in history, a naval blockade, and increasing bellicosity, responded by sending aid to its neighbors, including Ecuador and ColombiaImperialist policies will grow more ruthless as the pandemic spreads, and in its aftermath. The economic survival of capitalists and their corporate stockholders is based on beating out their competition in a crisis. Each growth spurt in the capitalist system involves the downfall of capitalist competitors.Despite years of warnings of the danger of a global pandemic, even by the National Security Council, the Pentagon neglected to stockpile sufficient emergency medical supplies, while it stockpiled weapons worth trillions of dollarsSocialist planning and large-scale collective ownership of major industries, including the medical industry, have been decisive in China and Cuba. Even in Venezuela, Vietnam and Nicaragua, the social mobilization of the people in health and social distancing measures has dramatically helped control the outbreakThe stark choices in an ever sharper global struggle are clear. The relentless drive to reap a profit from every type of human interaction has been exposed as the greatest danger to the people of the planet.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Mexico native and TCU tennis player sheds light on the transition to the US

first_imgStudent expected to launch sports betting app Twitter Carolina Olivareshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/carolina-olivares/ ReddIt Facebook Carolina Olivares + posts Linkedin Twitter Carolina is a journalism major with a minor in Spanish. She grew up in Houston, Texas so it’s safe to say you can hear her cheering on Houston sports team, EXCEPT the Texans. She throws up the X for the Dallas Cowboys. She can’t start her day without coffee and when she’s not reporting you can find her working out or spending time with friends. Individual safe after threatening to jump from Amon G. Carter Stadium printA TCU first-year tennis player moved to the U.S. at the age of 12 to study and to train at Saddlebrook Preparatory in Pasco County, Florida. The Mexico City native wanted to pursue his dream of competing at the American collegiate tennis level. His family moved with him, making the transition to the States slightly more comforting for a pre-adolescent.“It was hard leaving Mexico at first but I realized that everything was for my own good and that I was going to do something better in my life,” Eduardo Roldan, the now 19-year-old Horned Frog said. He said the hardest thing about moving to the U.S. was getting used to the language, but other than that the transition was easy because the cultures are not so different.“When I was born there was a tennis racket waiting for me as a gift with my mom, so I have always grown up with the sport,” Roldan said.  As a high school tennis player, Roldan improved his skill at Saddlebrook by competing against other top ranked juniors at National and International ITF and USTA tournaments. The school’s enrollment is comprised of students from over 20 countries, which exposed Roldan to a multicultural environment. TCU has grown the total international population of students on campus over the last five years at an average rate of 10.7 percent, according to College Factual. As of the 2017 school year, 650 students from over 90 countries are enrolled. Of those students, 11.1 percent are Hispanic/Latino.Carolina Olivares interviewing freshman tennis player Eduardo Roldan. Photo by Riane Cleveland.Although Nationals are competitive all around the world, the sport of tennis is more competitive in the United States, especially at the collegiate level, Roldan said. The Horned Frogs finished the 2016-17 season ranked No. 8 nationally and have four returning letterwinners. Roldan played extremely well at the ACU Invitational Walmart Open in Abilene, Texas Sept. 22-24, winning his first college match. He was paired with teammate, Alex McNeel, and defeated Zach Miller and Clayton Pope of McMurray 8-4 in their first doubles match. In the Flight 1 Singles Roldan defeated Lane Adkins 6-3 and then 7-5. Although Roldan took consecutive losses from Abilene Christian University players, Niko Moceanu, 6-3 and 7-5 and Jonathan Sheehy 6-4 and 6-2, he learned from this experience. “It served me good because I realized the level that I have to play at in order to win,” Roldan said.   Boschini questions English-only alert system Carolina Olivareshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/carolina-olivares/ Linkedin Carolina Olivareshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/carolina-olivares/ Previous articleHoroscope: October 23, 2017Next articleBluebonnet Hills Neighborhood Association responds to parking permit plan Carolina Olivares RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Grains to grocery: One bread maker brings together farmers and artisans at locally-sourced store Freshman Eduardo Roldan, from Mexico City, shown practicing.
