Barclays fell 2.7 per cent to 270.1p, while Lloyds dropped 5.8 per cent to 64p and RBS saw a 6.1 per cent fall to 40p.The falls in Lloyds and RBS stock were also exacerbated by the declaration by Independent Banking Commission member Clare Spottiswoode that state-owned banks could be broken up.Data from the Bank of International Settlements shows that the UK as a whole has an exposure of $140-$150bn to Ireland.And figures published by City A.M. yesterday revealed that RBS, Lloyds and Barclays have exposure to peripheral European debt equivalent to 113 per cent, 61 per cent and 42 per cent respectively.Creditors to Irish banks could be forced to take losses as a condition of the aid package being put together by the IMF and EU.UK?exposure to Irish debt was one of the reasons cited by chancellor George Osborne as justification for the UK’s contribution to Ireland’s rescue package, with fears that if Irish banks were allowed to fail, it could have a knock-on effect.

First, De La Rue managed to irk shareholders by keeping Oberthur’s approach under its hat for a whole month. Now management refuses to say whether it has been excluded from bidding for a key banknote printing contract from the Indian government. We think that De La Rue’s silence speaks volumes. According to Oberthur, there was recently a tender for 16,000 tonnes of Indian banknote printing, equivalent to the entirety of De La Rue’s current contract. If the French suitor is right, the situation is far worse than shareholders thought. Analysts at UBS were predicting De La Rue would lose 8,000 tonnes, or around half, of the contract in the future. If De La Rue has lost out on the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) deal, which won’t be re-tendered for another 12-18 months, Oberthur’s 905p indicative offer looks increasingly attractive.?In fact, it is the only thing propping up the stock, which closed at 836p yesterday.Analysts at Olivetree Securities reckon there is some 200p downside should Oberthur walk away, while Merrill Lynch sees the stock falling to 620p. Either way, it won’t be pretty. De La Rue claims it is winning new business at the same rate as last year. But there is no way that new wins can fill the gaping hole left behind by the RBI contract. Oberthur’s overtures might be supporting the stock for now, but the French firm has some talking of its own to do. It is still unclear how it could fund a bid; if it were to use debt, the combined firm would be painfully geared, with net debt of around five times earnings. Only the most daredevil shareholders will wait around to see if Oberthur is for real.

  • Charity Commission reports 59% of charities now affected by downturn

Of those affected, 62% have experienced a drop in income.The Charity Commission’s fourth Economic Survey of Charities surveyed 1,010 charities in England and Wales. Larger charities, with incomes of £100,000 or more, have been hit hardest, with 79% feeling the impact of the downturn and a third seeing an increase in demand for services.However, 84% of all charities said they were optimistic about the outlook for the next year, an increase on the 69% expressing optimism six months ago. This positive attitude was tempered: 47% of charities expect the recovery of the charity sector to lag behind that of the rest of the economy.Investment income continues to be the most affected source of income for the charities surveyed, with 62% of charities with investments having seen a decrease in the past six months.The Commission commented on the proportion of charities that rely primarily on public sector funding. The research shows that 24% of charities with an income of £100,000 or more consider public sector funding to be their most important source of income. The anticipated cuts in public sector spending may affect many of these when many public service delivery contracts between charities and public sector bodies end in March 2011.Dame Suzi Leather, Chair of the Charity Commission, said: “Clearly severe cuts lie ahead in both local and central government resources; many local authorities are already identifying spending on the voluntary sector as being vulnerable. There is a real concern that charities which receive money from the public purse to fund their valuable work could find themselves at a financial cliff edge in March 2011.“… These charities should ask themselves: can we take steps to increase our chance of winning local contracts? Could we collaborate with another charity to reduce costs? Or are there ways to diversify our income? The Commission has produced advice and ./guidance to help charities during what is a very difficult and unsure time”.www.charitycommission.gov.uk/Charity_requirements_./guidance/Charity_governance/Managing_resources/economic.aspx Charity Commission reports 59% of charities now affected by downturn Tagged with: Charity Commission Finance recession Research / statistics Howard Lake | 24 March 2010 | Newslast_img read more

  • Eight newspaper publishers questioned for implicating president’s son in corruption

After being questioned, two of the publishers were taken into custody in connection with another case and were due to appear before prosecutors on 5 August.“Journalists should not have to explain themselves in a police station when they do their job properly,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The summonses received by these newspaper owners are shocking and come at a time when the space for free expression in Niger is being drastically reduced.”Calling for the release of the two publishers who have been detained, the press freedom organisation added: “We salute the courage and tenacity of Niger’s journalists, who should be able to cover political developments and report corruption cases without being arrested or intimidated.”The publishers of Niger’s eight leading weeklies were summoned for questioning at Niamey police headquarters on 1 August for printing a document signed by a notary indicating that an internationally-owned company, Niger Uranium Venture SA, paid President Mamadou Tandja’s son, Hadia Doulaye Tandja, and Ibrahim Hamidou, a journalist linked to the president’s family, 5 million dollars in kickbacks for permission to prospect for uranium in the north of the country.The two detained publishers are Abdoulaye Tiémogo of Le Canard Déchaîné and Ali Soumana of Le Courrier. They face a libel prosecution over reports accusing the justice minister of overcharging for a study on slavery and forced labour in 2007, when he was head of the national human rights commission. The deputy director-general of the Dounia radio and TV group, Ali Idrissa, was meanwhile summoned for questioning by National Communication Council president Daouda Diallo for interviewing government opponents about tomorrow’s referendum on a proposed change to the constitution that would allow President Tandja to stay in power until 2012 and seek reelection as many times as he likes.“Our job is to inform the public and this is what we will do, whatever the cost,” Idrissa told Reporters Without Borders. “We will not yield to threats or blackmail.”As it stands, the constitution would require President Tandja to stand down when he completes his second term in December.The eight publishers targeted by the complaint brought by the president’s son:- Moussa Aksar, L’Evénement- Zakari Alzouma, Opinions- Abard Mouddour Zakara, L’Actualité- Omar Keita Lalo, Le Républicain- Ibrahim Souley, L’Enquêteur- Assane Sadou, Le Démocrate- Abdoulaye Tiémogo, Le Canard Déchaîné- Ali Soumana, Le Courrier November 27, 2020 Find out more The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa to go further August 3, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Eight newspaper publishers questioned for implicating president’s son in corruption News Niger: Two journalists arrested in disturbing setback for press freedomlast_img read more

  • Royal Navy’s Smallest Ships Sail with Three Cunard Queens

The two patrol boats were ideal for the role as they were large enough to be intimidating to other small vessels on the Mersey, but fast and agile enough to move freely and quickly around.It was all played out in front of more than one million spectators taking advantage of the May Bank Holiday.[mappress mapid=”16120″]Image: Royal Navy View post tag: europe View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Cunard View post tag: Royal Navy View post tag: Queen’s View post tag: ships View post tag: Smallest View post tag: Navy Back to overview,Home naval-today Royal Navy’s Smallest Ships Sail with Three Cunard Queens last_img read more

  • TuskTasks app links Oxford students to odd jobs

    first_imgA group of student entrepreneurs from Oxford University and Oxford Brookes launched a task-sharing service in April with the aim of “bringing communities together”.The service, called TuskTasks, connects students with people in the Oxford community who need to run errands but may not have the time.Members of the public post their tasks on the website along with the price they’re willing to pay for it, and the students choose whichever tasks they can complete.The response rate is often as quick as a few minutes, Micheal Hodnett, a co-founder of TuskTasks and finalist in real estate management at Brookes, told Cherwell.So far, according to Hodnett, the service has 201 users. “The idea came when I was lying in bed thinking how much I needed money, and how I was going to make it,” Hodnett said.Hodnett’s main source of income was doing odd jobs for friends and family, but he wondered why he had to be limited to working for people he knew.“So I set out to try and create a platform to connect people who need help with students who need work.”While finding students work is an important aspect of TuskTask’s mission, Hodnett also recognises how the service can bring a community closer together.He told Cherwell: “There seems to be a lot of negativity towards students within university towns and as such we wanted to paint students in a better light. Students do drink and party – sometimes – but they also work incredibly hard and can be a very reliable taskforce.“The platform is about helping one another. Helping the students earn money, while they are helping you.”The service can go a long way towards reducing what Hodnett calls ‘studentification’, the impact of a huge group of students being integrated into a city.Saam Medizadeh, director of the TuskTasks platform, told the Oxford Mail: “It gives students a chance to bring communities together, reduce the friction between communities and students and have people realise that students can help out.”Though only a website currently, the TuskTasks team is planning to turn the service into an app by the end of 2018.Hodnett told Cherwell: “This is the perfect way for students to make money as and when they need it, without having to commit to a regular job that affects their studies-and if we can give students a chance, I’m sure everyone will be surprised.”last_img read more
