Lloyds chief in plea to avoid a forced break-up

first_img Tags: NULL Share KCS-content Wednesday 24 November 2010 9:06 pm LLOYDS Banking chief Eric Daniels yesterday warned that forcing a break-up of the bank with its 30 per cent plus share in several retail markets would be a mistake.There is mounting speculation that Sir John Vickers independent commission, set up by the coalition government after the election, could force Lloyds to unwind its controversial takeover of rival HBOS.The commission will make its final recommendations next September, but an interim report is due out in the Spring. “Concentration does not lead to competitive outcomes. Concentration allows for safety and stability,” he told the Daily Mail. Daniels has asked the coalition to stick by Labour’s pledge to keep the bank intact. whatsapp Lloyds chief in plea to avoid a forced break-up center_img whatsapp Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’SportsnautTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family Proof Show Comments ▼ 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 PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen Heraldmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Six Nations Team of Round Two

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Jacob Whitehead is back with his ‘dream team’ from the second round of the 2021 championship Six Nations Team of Round TwoA classic weekend of Six Nations rugby. Games in Edinburgh and Dublin were in the balance going into the final moments, England’s attack actually looked functional, and there were a few performances to set British & Irish Lions coach Warren Gatland’s pulse racing.Two rounds in and it’s possible to see trends emerging. France and Wales’ meeting in the tournament’s final game has suddenly been circled in red pen, the medical staff deserve a pay rise, while four players have been in both teams of the week so far. So who were the gladiators of an attritional second week?Six Nations Team of Round Two 15. Stuart Hogg (Scotland)Had no right to score either of his tries. Performed one of those conjuring tricks, like against New Zealand back in 2017, where he looked as if he could score with every other touch. He may have been watching replays of Dupont’s assist for Gaël Fickou last weekend, subtly dinking through for Darcy Graham, and he was also a menace around the fringes throughout. 1. Wyn Jones (Wales)A second appearance in this team in as many weeks for Jones, whose exhausting grind to the line for Wales’ go-ahead try gave the prop a rare bit of limelight.It was remarkable he lasted 78 minutes considering the volume of work he got through. 2. Luke Cowan-Dickie (England)What a physical presence, full of more bounces than the Harlem Globetrotters. Will Eddie Jones reward England’s form hooker with a start away in Cardiff next round, in what would be the biggest opportunity in Cowan-Dickie’s international career?George Turner went well again for Scotland. 3. Kyle Sinckler (England)Perhaps fortunate to be given Man of the Match, but Sinckler’s trademark ball-handling in the pod was on full display. Fly-halves and props aren’t supposed to be iconic attacking combinations, but Sinckler and George Ford’s chemistry is beginning to lead them in that direction. Gaël Fickou (centre) and Gregory Alldritt (left) in action against Ireland (Sportsfile/Getty Images) A shame he can’t lead his side to France unbeaten to face opposite number Brice Dulin, who was also excellent. 14. Louis Rees-Zammit (Wales)The day Rees-Zammit arrived on the international scene. One suspects he won’t leave in a hurry. Had a few sketchy moments in defence, but these have to be overshadowed by the brilliance of his second try. That chip was straight from the playbook of the late, great JJ Williams.Related: Why Louis Rees-Zammit is getting faster 13. Henry Slade (England)The key to England’s attacking success was their ability to find Slade out wide early. The Exeter centre made space for his wingers at will and seemed to live on Juan Ignacio Brex’s outside shoulder.A word also for Scotland’s Chris Harris, intimidating for all 80 minutes. 12. Gaël Fickou (France)The absence of Virimi Vakatawa and Romain Ntamack would have been a worry for France, but the first two games have suggested that Fickou is the key man in the outside backs.Always within centimetres of Robbie Henshaw’s face defensively and heavily involved in the French tries.Willis Halaholo’s Wales debut was also a performance to remember. 11. Anthony Watson (England)Possibly under a bit of pressure for his place in the back three thanks to the emergence of Max Malins, this was Watson’s best game for England in the past year. 4. Jonny Gray (Scotland)Another mighty performance. A missed tackle comes around less often than Halley’s Comet and he made a couple of line breaks too. The battle for the Lions’ second-row berths has ignited this Six Nations. 5. Jonny Hill (England)It’s hard to outshine Maro Itoje, but this was Hill’s best international performance, coming a week after an inaccurate game against Scotland. Most impressive wasn’t his try, but the excellent pass off his weak hand to put Watson into space for the wing’s first score.Unlucky to miss out was Iain Henderson – his choke tackles kept it close against France. 6. Rhys Ruddock (Ireland)Pretty incredible to think that this was Ruddock’s first-ever start in the Six Nations, 11 years after his Test debut. Particularly outstanding in the first 30, he seemed to make it his personal mission to be a one-man belligerent against the French second row.Rhys Ruddock in the thick of the action against France (Sportsfile/Getty Images) 7. Hamish Watson (Scotland)There’s more kinetic energy emanating from Hamish Watson’s carries than from a roaring pneumatic drill. His battle against  Justin Tipuric, a week after Watson saw off another Lions contender in Tom Curry, was fascinating.A word also for Johan Meyer, who irritated England all game. 8. Grégory Alldritt (France)One of the slighter No 8’s in international rugby, but so durable, picking up the ball in ugly positions to get France moving across the gainline. Becoming an irreplaceable outlet for Antoine Dupont.England will also be pleased to see Billy Vunipola throwing opposition half-backs round like soft toys.Who would make your Six Nations Team of Round Two? Email [email protected] to let us know. Jonny May was the acrobat but the star attraction was Watson, scything through on in-lines like a sharpened rapier. 10. George Ford (England)No fly-half truly stood out this weekend, but Ford’s introduction to the side was like putting oil in a rusting engine. It’s hard to point to a single moment, but his control and range of passing made England run infinitely smoother. 9. Ali Price (Scotland)It would be easy to pick Antoine Dupont (as will likely happen every other week!), but the single sublime piece of skill of the weekend came from the Glasgow scrum-half.

Legislature may be slamming the brakes on red light cameras

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter 2 COMMENTS Bill would discontinue red light cameras by 2020Red light cameras may have just gotten their plugged pulled if a Florida House subcommittee vote is any indication of the trajectory this bill is headed.By an overwhelming vote of 13-1, the state House transportation and infrastructure subcommittee on Wednesday supported a measure (HB 6007) by Rep. Bryan Avila, R-Hialeah, and Rep. Blaise Ingoglia, R-Spring Hill, that would repeal the Mark Wandall Traffic Safety Act of 2010.If repealed, it would prevent the state Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles and local governments from using the cameras for traffic enforcement. The bill would take effect on July 1st, 2020.“The law may have been well-intentioned, but it has become “a revenue stream” for governments.,” said Avila.He also referenced a recent Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles study showing the cameras have failed to enhance public safety, but revenues continued to increase. This year’s proposal to ban the cameras has some momentum because of that study analyzing crash data in dozens of cities and counties that use the cameras in Florida. The data has been disputed by red-light camera advocates because it was not comprehensive, which is a point the department concedes.Opponents included the Florida League of Cities and Melissa Wandall (the wife of Mark Wandall), who argued that local officials should be able to decide whether to use the cameras. Melissa Wandall maintained the law saves lives. Wandall’s husband was killed by a driver who ran a red light.“If I thought this was killing other people, maiming other people, injuring other people, I tell you right now I would have my husband’s name taken off this” law, she said. “I’m not just an advocate. I know the statistics. I work with law enforcement. We’re taking all these tools away from law enforcement.”Representative Barbara Watson from Miami Gardens cast the only NO vote. She noted the study looked at crashes up to 250 feet from intersections.Orange County Sheriff’s Captain Dennis Strange testified that the cameras are a deterrent and said drivers modify their behavior where they know cameras are used.“I can tell you that my sons, when they got their permits, they knew where every red light camera was. I had a standing rule, if you are issued a citation, that’s your baby, you pay it,” Strange said.The measure goes next to the House Appropriations Committee, then the Government Accountability Committee.Apopka currently has 21 different red light cameras at 10 intersections in the city.

Denis Leamy’s bunny hopping-madness at the back of the scrum

first_imgTuesday Nov 20, 2007 Denis Leamy’s bunny hopping-madness at the back of the scrum The Munster fire is alive and well. After a close defeat to the Wasps, they redeemed themselves with a five-try killing spree of Clermont Auvergne. Veteran full-back Shaun Payne and centre Rua Tipoki both touched down for the second week running, while second half tries from winger Brian Carney, flanker Alan Quinlan and prop Marcus Horan sealed the result. The focus of this video though is Dennis Leamy’s unique way of controlling the ball at the back of the scrum when trying to score a pushover try. Fairly often mistakes are made when trying to drag it with the feet towards the line, normally kicking it back into the scrum and losing the ball. But this new method begs the question, is he really contributing the eight man shove? Another thing, is it legal? According to some it’s not. Apparently earlier in the season Anthony Foley did the same thing and was blown up for it. It does have it’s merits though, simply because you’re in control of the ball at all times, even if you’re completely off balance and get pumped as soon as you break away from the scrum. Luckily for Leamy he had Rua Tipoki to offload to when it happened to him.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

€36million winter plan boost for regional health services

first_imgEmail HSE Mid-West Community Healthcare Chief Officer Maria Bridgeman.SIGNIFICANT increases in bed capacity are being provided as part of the winter plan for the University of Limerick Hospitals Group.The extra beds will be provided alongside the development of a range of integrated community care packages and enhanced home care supports in the joint plan with HSE Mid-West Community Healthcare.While Covid-19 remains prevalent within the community, the overall investment of almost €36 million aims to improve access to appropriate care at home or close to home, with an emphasis on hospital avoidance.“At a time when our acute hospitals and community healthcare services face increased pressure due to influenza and other seasonal ailments and trends, the Covid threat has sharpened the focus on the integration of acute hospital and community care,” a spokesman said.“The Winter Plan works to enhance the capacity of our hospitals and prioritise acute care for the sickest patients, by helping people to find the best, fastest and most appropriate healthcare as close to their homes as possible.”The allocation of €20 million to the UL Hospitals Group includes investment in staffing for its ongoing expansion of single-room bed capacity, primarily at University Hospital Limerick (UHL).Since the Autumn, UHL has opened 38 beds in new rapid-build bed blocks constructed under the Covid-19 emergency plan, and commenced the phased opening of its new 60-bed block, involving the immediate opening of 20 beds, following by 20 more in December and the final 20 in early January.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The plan also allocates €15.7m to HSE Mid-West Community Healthcare for the delivery of enhanced community services, and prioritising the development of the Integrated Care for Older Persons Programme.Other community measures include a high quality integrated care programme for people suffering from chronic disease; and the delivery of Community Healthcare Networks.HSE Mid-West Community Healthcare has been allocated additional resources to support Home Care. This will target greater patient flow and will ensure support for those leaving hospital.Additional money have been provided to buy aids and appliances to support people at home.UL Hospitals Group chief executive Colette Cowan said the €20 million investment had allowed them secure staffing for the significant number of modern, high quality hospital beds and other facilities that have been completed this year under the national pandemic emergency plan.“These beds are a major step forward in addressing our long standing capacity issues, improving the standard of hospital care for patients who need it, especially at a time when sudden surges in Covid pose such a threat to people, specifically to patients and staff in healthcare settings,” she explainedChief Officer of HSE Mid-West Community Healthcare Maria Bridgeman commented: “While working in an environment with the prevalence of COVID-19, our aim is to provide high quality, safe healthcare to meet the demands of the Mid-West this Winter.“The focus is on providing this care in a person’s home or as close to home as possible which is welcomed by patients and ensures we play our part in hospital avoidance,” she added.

A bench comprising of Dr. Justice Vineet Kothari and Justice R. Suresh Kumar has ordered that the parole stands recalled/ cancelled and the convicted persons should surrender before the Superintendent of the Prisons concerned on or before June 15, 2020. The order is passed in view of the assurances given by the Director General of Police that if the Prisoners, who are on Parole, are readmitted in the Prisons, they will be placed in quarantine in the earmarked separate blocks of respective prisons after proper screening. On June 1, the High Court had extended the period of parole until June 8, 2020 while stating that the stigma attached to convicts may attract “retaliatory attacks”. “It is a well settled position of law that once there, the stigma attached to the conviction remains, unless it is set aside by the Appellate Forum. Once a person is convicted, presumption of innocence is no longer available to him/her. …if convicts, especially, the life convicts remain at large, on account of interim orders of parole/leave granted by this Court, there is every likelihood of retaliatory attack in the form of grievous injury/death also,” the order read. The Court had thus decided to reconsider the order for extension of parole on June 8, 2020. Through the said order, the High Court had also extended the life of all other interim orders, etc. till June 30. The matter will now be taken up on June 29, for further consideration.
