Pensions clarity can hit investor risk perception

first_img KCS-content whatsapp Share COMPANIES which disclose pension liabilities in their accounts are increasingly taking a hit on investor perceptions, regardless of whether or not they have a pension deficit, new research has shown.Over half of finance directors surveyed in a recent PwC study on attitudes to pensions accounting said that information disclosed in their accounts gave investors a negative impression of the company, even if they are taking action to reduce risk.“While many companies are taking action to reduce the risk that pension liabilities pose to the business, they are not always getting credit for this by failing to clearly communicate the benefits,” said Brian Peters, a pensions partner at PwC. “Perversely, risk reduction exercises can sometimes have a negative impact on investors’ perceptions by drawing attention to the significance of pension liabilities.”The research comes after it emerged that pension liabilities of UK companies had rocketed by a fifth over the past year, reaching a record £1.2 trillion at the end of the summer. Many firms have come under fire recently for running large pension deficits, including BT, British Airways and BAE Systems.

UK stifling property use

first_img Share UK stifling property use Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULL DEVELOPERS and landlords are trying to escape the economic slump through changes in the use of their properties, commercial law firm EMW has told City A.M.“Change of use” applications shot up by 10 per cent in the third quarter of last year, and by nine per cent the previous quarter, its research shows.Yet a complex and inflexible planning permission system is stunting their ability to react to changes in demand, an EMW spokesperson said.Planning applications can be “lengthy and costly”, with red tape thwarting recovery in the UK’s property market, EMW planning specialist Giles Ferin explained.“Unfortunately, the current planning system is overly complex,” he said. “Properties can lie vacant because their use is restricted to a certain type of activity.”The measures stunt economic growth and can be a blight on local communities, the report said.High restrictions on the use of property have led to shortages of space to let in central London, Ferin added.

RADIATION LEAKS IN JAPAN

first_img Q.HOW MUCH RADIATION HAS BEEN RELEASED?A.The fire at Fukushima’s Daiichi reactor 4 is thought to have released the most radiation so far, with readings after the blaze showing 400 millisievert (mSv) per hour. For comparison, a chest X-ray will give a 0.2 mSv dose and the legal limit in the UK for nuclear workers is 20mSv per year. The levels later dropped to 0.6 mSv per hour but radiation is believed to have entered the atmosphere.Q.Who has been affected so far?A.The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said 23 people near Daiichi have tested positive for radiation and have been decontaminated. 140,000 people within 30km of Fukushima have been ordered to stay indoors, but one expert said the risk is limited to a small area. “Radioactive material will reach Tokyo but it is not harmful to human bodies because it will be dissipated by the time it gets to Tokyo,” said Koji Yamazaki, professor at Hokkaido University.Q.could more radiation be released?A.Fukushima’s reactor 2 is the most pressing concern, with authorities unsure about whether the reactor’s casing is damaged. Reactor 4’s status is still unclear. But Fukushima Daini, Onagawa and Tokai plants are now in a safe condition, authorities say. Q.how are humans affected by radiation?A.In the short term, exposure to radiation can cause temporary radiation sickness, with vomiting, bleeding, burns and diarrhoea. Large doses of radiation or a long exposure can increase the risk of certain cancers. • Sources:?IAEA, Reuters, TEPCO, Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency, NHS Show Comments ▼ Tuesday 15 March 2011 9:56 pm Share KCS-content RADIATION LEAKS IN JAPAN center_img whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBePeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople Todaymoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.com Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

Photo: Church Divinity School of the Pacific[Episcopal News Service] Church Divinity School of the Pacific, or CDSP, and Trinity Church Wall Street announced March 4 that the New York parish has acquired the Berkeley, California-based seminary.The Very Rev. W. Mark Richardson, CDSP president and dean, told Episcopal News Service in an interview that the deal will put the school on a solid financial footing and position it for growth. CDSP and its assets now belong to Trinity, he said, and the value of those assets “will be a fund, among other resources they have, that supports the program at the school and operation.”“It’ll be starting point of the kinds of funds we need to, say, augment faculty or to provide scholarship funding for students,” he said. “This becomes part of their assets that are poured back into the mission of the school.”Trinity sees CDSP as part of its strategy “to present and offer the curriculum that will bring new leaders into the world that can gather communities and resource them in a way that we have not been able to do currently,” the Rev. William Lupfer, Trinity’s rector, told ENS in an interview.Ultimately, Trinity and CDSP hope to add more faculty and an expanded curriculum that will train clergy and laity for a changing church, especially in the areas of leadership development, formation and community organizing. Making theological education more affordable is also a goal, church and seminary officials say. Both organizations hope to expand their current relationships across the Anglican Communion.“It’s going to strengthen and enhance our programming,” the Rev. Ruth Meyers, the school’s academic dean, told ENS. “Trinity has this history of not only doing work in leadership development but [building] relations around the Anglican Communion, and I think that’s really going to enhance the work we’re doing at CDSP.”The Rev. William Lupfer, Trinity Church Wall Street’s rector, left, and the Very Rev. W. Mark Richardson, Church Divinity School of the Pacific president and dean, announced the acquisition to CDSP students, faculty and staff on March. 4. Photo: Canticle CommunicationsTrinity Wall Street includes the church in Lower Manhattan, nearby St. Paul’s Chapel, and the Trinity Retreat Center in West Cornwall, Connecticut, as well as partnerships that involve housing for the elderly, the homeless and people with disabilities, among others. The parish also has a $6 billion portfolio that includes major real estate holdings, primarily in New York where it is both a developer and a landlord.The church’s vestry is now the seminary’s governing body. “But our vestry will not manage CDSP,” Lupfer said. “We will have staff members supporting the folks who are currently managing CDSP.”The Association of Theological Schools, the accrediting agency for all Episcopal Church-tied seminaries, has agreed to continue to accredit CDSP under the new governance structure. That means CDSP can continue to grant degrees. “CDSP is not going away,” Meyers said.Lupfer, Richardson and others involved in the discussions, which went on for close to 18 months and led to the agreement, told ENS that Trinity and CDSP expect to maintain the seminary’s current management, faculty and staff at the school for the near future. The current curriculum also will be maintained in the near term, they said.Lupfer and Richardson announced the agreement March 4 in CDSP’s chapel to students, faculty and staff. That gathering began two days of meetings and question-and-answer sessions with Lupfer, Richardson, faculty and CDSP and Trinity senior staff.Quoting the spiritual that says, “I got a home up in that kingdom, ain’t that good news,” Presiding Bishop Michael Curry said in an emailed statement that the agreement “is not simply a matter of institutional rearrangement.”“That would be news. But this is more than news. This is good news in the biblical meaning of that phrase. For this is about a creative relationship that will enable the seminary to train and form leaders for a church daring to be more than merely an institution,” Curry said. “This is about forming leaders for a Jesus movement committed to living, proclaiming and witnessing to his way and message of unconditional, unselfish, sacrificial liberating love. That movement changed lives and the world in the first century, and it can do it again in the 21st century. This new relationship helps to form leaders for that. And that is truly good news!”The Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, president of the House of Deputies, also praised the agreement.“I’ve just returned from serving as St. Margaret’s Visiting Professor of Women in Ministry at CDSP, where I met students and faculty with the fresh energy and ideas we need in the 21st-century church,” she said in a statement emailed to ENS. “This new alliance between CDSP and Trinity Church Wall Street is a visionary and innovative way to pair that energy with resources and partnerships that span the globe, all in the service of the gospel. Our church needs just the kind of leaders that this partnership will provide.”The campus of Church Divinity School of the Pacific in Berkeley, California, is just north of the University of California, Berkeley. Photo: Church Divinity School of the PacificCDSP, founded in 1893, is one of 10 seminaries with ties to The Episcopal Church. It is not the first of those schools to change its ways of being in order to survive the economic challenges facing all small graduate schools, and seminaries in particular. In 2012, Bexley Seabury Seminary was formed through a federation of two Episcopal seminaries, Bexley Hall Seminary in Columbus, Ohio, and Seabury-Western Theological Seminary in Chicago.In 2017, Episcopal Divinity School announced it would be closing its Cambridge, Massachusetts, campus and entering an affiliation agreement with Union Theological Seminary in New York. The new entity is called Episcopal Divinity School at Union. Earlier this year, EDS at Union said it had begun a long-term lease for its remaining Cambridge property with The Church in Cambridge. The move was the latest in a process that began in March 2008 when the seminary sought to secure its financial future by entering a partnership with Lesley University, in which Lesley bought seven of the 13 buildings EDS owned on its eight-acre campus.Request of advice led to agreementTrinity and CDSP did not set out to strike an acquisition deal. “It started by accident, frankly,” Richardson said. He and then-trustees chair Don White had turned to Trinity for advice when the school was considering how it might capitalize on its parking lot, one of the few nominally empty spaces in the neighborhood just north of the University of California, Berkeley.“We seemed to have started at an inspirational moment,” Richardson said. “They knew we weren’t there to get into their pocketbook. We just really had some things we needed to do and knew they had the expertise.”Richardson said the seminary would base any potential development on the goals of adding value to the neighborhood, providing income for the school and driving mission.“It’s got to meet all three, or it’s not serving the school’s long-term history and needs,” he said he told Lupfer and others.The rector replied that he and Trinity take an even broader, more holistic approach to such questions. The conversation eventually left the parking lot behind as its scope widened.Trinity, Lupfer said, has always looked at land “as an economic opportunity that needs to be activated” for broader, missional uses. Thus, the parking lot conversation evolved into a recognition that Trinity has cash and CDSP has “all this intellectual power, and it’s aligned in the ways in which we are interested in,” Lupfer said, including leadership development, formation and community organizing.The Church Divinity School of the Pacific campus sits on what is known as Holy Hill, which has views of San Francisco Bay. Photo: Google MapsThe “inspirational” part of the agreement was striking to CDSP alumnus and trustee, the Rev. Brendan Barnicle. A stock analyst and investment banker who had seen “lots of deals over the years” before he went to seminary, Barnicle said that, as he watched “the dialogue and the way this was being done, maybe not surprisingly, I’d never seen a deal where the Holy Spirit was so apparent because there was so much new and creative about this.”Barnicle, of St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Portland, Oregon, added, “If we expect parishioners to think about how they steward their resources, then we, as the church, need to be a model, and I think that is what CDSP is doing by entering into this relationship.”The faculty soon became part of the conversations about a possible deal. “This is different from some of the other seminary drama that we have had in the last few years in that the faculty are really on board,” Meyers said.A member of the faculty sat on the CDPS board and joined in the deliberations. Input from those representatives has been “welcomed and well received by other member of the board,” Meyers said. The faculty had been “listened to and attended to” during the conversations and negotiations, she added.Kathleen Moore, a CDSP senior whom the student body elected as ombudsperson for this academic year, told ENS she was “pretty excited when I heard about it, and I am still pretty excited.” Moore represented students’ interests on the Board of Trustees and elsewhere, and she said she told her trustee colleagues that the deal is an instance of CDSP “putting into practice what it teaches and preaches” about adaptive change.Barnicle acknowledged, “It’s risky to make a change like this and to potentially give up some of the control and authority and what not; yet, as we think about the church going forward, being willing to take those kinds of risks are some of the things I think that we are called to do.”Moore said she has learned at CDSP “to look at those unknowns with an open mind, an excited mind, and we have a scriptural basis for this kind of thing to go forward not knowing exactly what’s going to happen but having trust.”The details of the new arrangement will be worked out, Richardson said, “as we stumble over ourselves and learn from our mistakes and then pick up a start again.”Richardson said, “I think the church knows, as a whole, that we need innovation in theological education and in the church, period. Innovation, when it’s true, is often disruptive. All of that will be part of the story moving forward.”Lupfer agreed. “Being iterative and being open to the future and to learning together and experimenting is a critical part of today’s world,” he said. “We would not want to be with someone who had the illusion of certainty of the future.”Trinity Church Wall Street is in the midst of a two-year rejuvenation project, the first in decades. The updates are intended to enhance the overall worship experience, make spaces accessible and welcoming, upgrade technology and infrastructure and address deferred maintenance. Photo: Trinity Church Wall Street via FacebookOne of those unknowns is how alumni and other donors will react to the news. Will they think they no longer have to give because of Trinity’s wealth? “What we hope is that people will see this as a strengthening of the seminary and still be able to give to the focused programming of CDSP,” Meyers said, explaining that focus might also apply to scholarship funds and faculty chair endowments. “There’s still going to be continuing need. We are one tiny part of the Trinity budget.”The agreement also represents a significant change in each organization’s culture. Combine one of the oldest institutions in The Episcopal Church with a seminary in the West created to serve the West and there will be “amazing contrasts,” Richardson said, including a big staff at Trinity and a “small, scrappy school that has a fraction of that.” Yet, both Richardson and Lupfer said their institutions are geared toward the missional work of the church in the world.And, Lupfer said, Trinity is not aiming to compete with the other Episcopal Church-connected seminaries.“We see this as additive for everyone,” Lupfer said, who spoke to ENS right after meeting with the dean of another seminary and assuring him of Trinity’s ongoing contributions to that school’s capital campaign and annual fund drive.“If there’s any bulking up at CDSP, which of course we would expect, that would probably happen with international students or students who would not go to a residential seminary without financial aid,” he said. “We don’t see ourselves competing for students with other the other seminaries. And we see ourselves cooperating with the other seminaries around curriculum areas that we’re interested in.”– The Rev.

Reporter kidnapped and tortured two weeks after release

first_img Red alert for green journalism – 10 environmental reporters killed in five years March 8, 2016 – Updated on February 22, 2017 Reporter kidnapped and tortured two weeks after release Follow the news on South Sudan News to go further Online memorial and writing prize launched to mark 30th birthday of slain journalist Christopher Allen South SudanAfrica Condemning abusesProtecting journalists ImpunityViolence News Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the appalling torture to which newspaper reporter Joseph Afandi was subjected just two weeks after his release from a long period of detention, and calls on the government to guarantee the safety of journalists in South Sudan.It has only just been reported that Afandi was found badly beaten and burned near a cemetery in the capital, Juba, four days ago, and is now hospitalized. A colleague, Ibrahim Awuol, said he has serious leg injuries caused by burning plastic.Afandi said he was abducted on 4 March by unidentified men in a white vehicle with tinted windows and no number plate. The authorities recently held him incommunicado for two months for criticizing the government’s handling of the civil war, which has dragged on for more than two years.He was finally freed on 19 February without being notified of any charge.“We condemn this cruel act of violence against Joseph Afandi with the utmost energy and we call for an immediate investigation with the aim of identifying those responsible,” said Cléa Kahn-Sriber, the head of RSF’s Africa desk.“In the absence of such an investigation, we remind the South Sudanese authorities that those who make such human rights violations possible will one day be called to account before an international court.”Local observers have reported an increase in attacks on journalists in recent weeks. In most cases, the terrified victims have asked not to be identified.Freedom of information has declined steadily since the start of the deadly civil war in South Sudan, the world’s newest state.
