Exodus feared as UK companies lose faith

first_imgSunday 24 October 2010 10:53 pm Exodus feared as UK companies lose faith Tags: NULL Share Show Comments ▼center_img whatsapp whatsapp COMPANIES are losing patience with rising levels of taxation and regulation and many are plotting to move overseas with disastrous implications for the economy, the Confederation of British Industry will warn today. A survey of business chiefs lifted the lid on growing dissatisfaction with an economic environment which they claim is blunting their competitive edge. The CBI said India and China were increasingly being viewed as better options by firms struggling to recover from the downturn, while the US was also considered more viable. In the service industry 10 per cent fewer businesses will have their headquarters in the UK in five years time, according to data in the CBI/Deloitte Annual Conference Survey.However, 12 per cent of the companies polled have not yet decided if they will move their businesses, and the CBI warned the government that it faces a race against time to stop them abandoning the UK. The issues that overshadowed all others were regulation, taxation, infrastructure and planning. The manufacturing sector showed the least confidence in the UK – scoring 27 per cent lower than the average approval rating for other areas of the economy.While financial services emerged as the most attractive sector for investment at the moment, regulation is threatening to stifle competition, CBI deputy general director John Cridland told City A.M. “The European Parliament is settling scores. Some think that private equity companies were benefiting because they were not being regulated in the same way as public companies. “However, what they are not accepting is that private equity companies cannot cause a systematic collapse of the system. A firm may fail but it will not bring the whole system down with it. What these regulators are doing is in many ways uncompetitive. There are so many rules and regulations that companies are not able to come up with innovative products.”Meanwhile the survey shows that businesses at least believe that the coalition government is proving a good listener. More than 60 per cent said they thought it would improve the overall climate for business. CBI director-general Richard Lambert said: “The atmosphere is positive … we must fire the economy into life. In the past two years we have seen some troubling signs.” The report was based on findings by Ipsos MORI, which interviewed 121 business chiefs. KCS-content last_img read more

Detained Syrian blogger Razan Ghazzawi released on bail

first_img Organisation SyriaMiddle East – North Africa RSF_en Follow the news on Syria December 19, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Detained Syrian blogger Razan Ghazzawi released on bail ————-Arrest of noted blogger shows no end to crackdown despite recent releases 2011.12.05Reports Without Borders strongly condemns the arrest yesterday of the blogger Razan Ghazzawi at the Syria-Jordan border while she was on her way to Amman.Since 2009, Ghazzawi has been running the blog Razaniyat, where she campaigns for freedom of expression and gay rights. She also coordinates the Syrian Centre for the Media and Freedom of Expression, which she was to have represented at a workshop in the Jordanian capital on freedom of information in the Arab world.According to several media outlets, Ghazzawi was believed to have been the inspiration for the hoax blog A Gay Girl in Damascus.Her last post, on 1 December, was about the release of the blogger Hossein Ghoureir, who had been abducted on 24 October by Syrian security forces.Two days ago, media workers and figures from the world of the arts and culture appeared before the courts: film-maker Nidal Hassan, film-maker and journalist Reem Ghazzi, blogger Jehad Jamal, better known under the blog name “Milan”, activist Manal Janabi and Mohamed Fawzi Karam.In addition, Reporters Without Borders has learned of the release of five journalists and bloggers on 30 November: bloggers Rudy Osman and Assem Hamchou who were arrested in August, Hanadi Zahlout, who was arrested on 4 August for the third time, freelance journalist Omar al As’ad and blogger Malak Al-Shanawani. They were freed a few days before the Muslim festival of Eid al-Adha as part of a mass release of more than 900 detainees including activists and government opponents. (http://www.bbc.co.uk/arabic/middleeast/2011/11/111130_turkey_conference.shtml). The blogger Hossein Ghoureir was released on 1 December.Rumours about the death of the journalist Mohamed Jamal Tahan, former editor of Al-Adiyat magazine, have spread on the Internet. He is reported to have been suffering from advanced cancer and, according to some reports, he had died in detention from complications arising from his illness.However, this was denied in posts on a Facebook page in support of the journalist. There has been no news of him since he was arrested at his home in Aleppo in September by air force intelligence agents, despite his illness. Mohamed Amin, a journalist with the privately-owned pro-government daily Al-Watan, announced his resignation yesterday in Cairo, saying he was no longer able to work for a newspaper that “reprints official speeches”. Al Watan has been hit by new sanctions by the European Union three days ago aimed at several institutions and public figures in Syria for their alleged role in the crackdown on dissent. In parallel, President Bashar al-Assad issued a decree two days ago setting up a National Information Council to regulate radio, television and the Internet. The creation of this body at a time when several journalists and bloggers are deprived of their freedom underscores the macabre and schizophrenic attitude of the Syrian authorities towards those engaged in informing the public, in a country where the pursuit of journalism can be fatal. Reporters Without Borders notes that the blogger Razan Ghazzawi was released on bail of 15 000 Syrian pounds ($300) yesterday, two weeks after she was arrested.”We welcome the release of Razan Ghazzawi but we call on the Syrian government to drop the charges against her. The authorities must also release as soon as possible all journalists, bloggers and dissidents jailed for expressing themselves freely”, the press freedom organization said. Ghazzawi was charged with “broadcasting false information that could undermine national morale”, “circulating false news that could weaken national sentiment and ignite sectarian strife” and “establishing an organization that aims to change the social and economic entity of the state”.The charges could incur a sentence of between three and 15 years in prison if she is found guilty. No date has been set for her next trial hearing.

He was reportedly arrested on 16 March. He may have been released on 6 October.Reporters Without Borders published a report on 1 December, entitled “Upheaval in the Arab world: Media as key witnesses and political pawns” which analyses the methods used by the authorities to prevent the flow of information in six countries where there have been popular uprisings, from 17 December 2010 to mid-November this year. It includes a section on Syria.The press freedom organization demands that the Syrian authorities release all journalists and bloggers who have committed no crime other than informing the public. News Help by sharing this information News ————Detained woman blogger facing possible jail sentence 2011.12.13Reporters Without Borders is very concerned about the fate of the Syrian-American blogger Razan Ghazzawi, who was brought before a court today following her arrest on 4 December as she was about to cross the border into Jordan.Her lawyer said she was facing between three and 15 years in prison on a total of three charges. One was “establishing an organization that aims to change the social and economic entity of the state.” Another was “circulating false news that could weaken national sentiment and ignite sectarian strife.” It relates to her alleged membership of a committee that organizes pro-democracy demonstrations.The third was violating article 335 of the criminal code, which bans “participation in a riotous demonstration.” When arrested at the border, she was on her way to attend a forum in Amman on the defence of media freedom.Reporters Without Borders calls on the authorities to release her unconditionally and drop all the charges against her. The regime must also end its severe harassment of bloggers and journalists. Some of those who were arrested have since been released, but many continue to be held on serious charges. A Facebook group and an online petition have been launched in support of Ghazzawi. Internet users can also express their solidarity with her by using the #FreeRazan hashtag on Twitter.

Mid West businesses encouraged to invest in people

first_imgPrint RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR WhatsApp Timmy O’Dwyer, Vice President, Global Parts Operations for Dell EMC; Anne Heraty, CEO and founder of CPL Resources PLC; Dr James Ring, CEO, Limerick Chamber.150 members of the Mid-West business community took part in the second of a series of leadership discussions at the Dell EMC Campus in Limerick as part of the Limerick Chamber Regional Leaders’ Programme.The programme is being delivered by Limerick Chamber in collaboration with Dell EMC and University of Limerick. The audience heard today from Anne Heraty, CEO and founder of CPL Resources PLC.Praising the initiative as she addressed the audience, Ms Heraty said: “The biggest part I believe of successful leadership is an investment in your employees and their continued growth. To have 150 business people from a variety of backgrounds across the mid-west region is testament to the commitment you all have to the future of the region.”Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up This was the second of five leadership talks that will take place at Dell EMC’s Limerick Campus over the coming year. Each of these leadership talks are private sessions for the 150 participants signed up to the programme. In between the bi-monthly leadership talks, the 150 participants will participate in smaller groups with a mentor. This will be a senior leader from the region who will work with them to develop their leadership skills. Each group will receive a new mentor every two months, ensuring that they are exposed to many different leadership styles drawn from a broad range of sectors.Timmy O’Dwyer, Vice President, Global Parts Operations and Limerick Site Leader for Dell EMC: “Dell EMC is delighted to be working with Limerick Chamber and University of Limerick on this exciting programme to support the growth and development ambitions of the mid-west region. Our first leadership session took place back in February and we received a lot of positive feedback from all who attended. The programme is an exciting one for the region and it’s great to see the time commitment being invested by the mid-west business community. Programmes like this one that bring our community together to learn and share from each other’s experiences in the long run will have a positive impact for the leaders of the future.”Anne Heraty established Cpl Resources plc. in 1989 and as Chief Executive, Anne has played a key role in developing it to become Ireland’s leading employment services company. Cpl finished the year with 8,223 people working on behalf of Cpl on client projects. They have a network of 32 offices in nine countries. Anne holds a BA degree in Mathematics and Economics from University College Dublin.“From a personal point of view I have two key rules I live by. One is to listen – I always try to listen carefully to what both my employees or clients are saying to me, what do they really mean and ultimately make sure I’m understanding their needs. If I’m successfully responding to their needs as their employer or at a client level then the kick back is a happy workforce and a happy client. The second key piece I’ve found to be essential is the importance of surrounding yourself with the right people. From entry level positions to senior management, the value of hiring the right people is immeasurable. The ability to recruit the right below and select the right leaders for your organisation I think is ultimately key for your organisation reaching its full potential. With the right team in place trust develops and with trust I believe as a leader you have the ability to empower your team to do the right thing and be successful.”Anne Heraty delivered an hour long talk to the attendees with an open questions and answers session at the end.Dr. Philip O’Regan, University of Limerick said: “UL is delighted to be working with Limerick Chamber and Dell EMC in delivering such a significant mentoring programme to business leaders in the region. The purpose is to instil in those taking part a sense of ambition, teamwork and strategic focus and Anne Heraty has emphasised exactly these qualities in a wonderful presentation that drew on her unrivalled business experience. The huge turnout and the enthusiasm of those taking part suggests that this series has struck a chord with business leaders in the region.”Dr James Ring, CEO, Limerick Chamber, said: I am delighted to see that something that emerged as a little idea has continued to grow and once again brings the highest calibre leadership speaker like Anne Heraty to Limerick. The vision of this programme is to create a strong network of high performing senior leaders from around the region to help drive the Mid-West to higher and higher levels. The partnership of the Chamber alongside Dell EMC and UL is proving a huge success and I am sure will result in the further growth of this programme for years to comeMore information about the Limerick Chamber Regional Leaders Programme is available at www.limerickchamber.ie.

According to a new Zillow analysis released Wednesday, this market could be limiting options for lower- and middle-income buyers.Zillow finds that the number of SFR homes grew by over 5 million between 2006 and 2017. In total, about 270,000 fewer homes are sold each year compared to 2006, or about 5 percent of the homes that would sell in a typical year. Additionally, about 120,000 of these lost sales were among the most affordable homes that are often considered by first-time buyers.”For the past 10 years, the number of single-family homes that are rented has grown steadily and remains near the highest levels ever recorded,” said Aaron Terrazas Zillow Senior Economist. “The combination of foreclosures and growing rental demand following the housing crash was an attractive opportunity for investors—large and small—who were able to buy foreclosed homes and use them to meet the rental demand.”At the same time, many long-time owners have opted to hold onto their homes as rentals even after they decide to move somewhere else. According to Terrazas, with such a large portion of single-family homes being rented out, and with new homes being built more slowly than the market needs, home values will continue to rise, particularly among the most affordable homes with the highest demand.Based on the report’s analysis, the renter population increased fast when owners lost their homes to foreclosure following the housing crisis—and the share of SFR homes grew from 13 percent in 2009 to 19.2 percent in 2016. That demand remains strong, as 45 percent of renters would like an SFR home, but only 28 percent could find one to rent.Another factor making the booming SFR market such a concern is millennials. As the largest group of buyers in the market today, this group is enhancing buyers competition for more affordable entry-level homes. However, the report notes that over the last five years, the homes being purchased and converted to rentals are increasingly the same affordable starter homes that first-time buyers are after—therefore limiting buyers’ options and increasing competition.The data shows that nearly 40 percent of SFR homes bought since 2012 are among the most affordable, compared to 34 percent of SFR homes that were bought before the housing market crash.To view the full report, click here.
