But we could have all saved ourselves some mild exertion as any financial market reaction – particularly in gilts and currencies – was difficult to find.Of course, because many of the broader details had been leaked in the days ahead of the Chancellor’s speech there was no real expectation that the financial markets would be seeing any big surprises. Arguably, the more significant movements yesterday came off the back of the Bank of England meeting minutes and the overshoot in the borrowing figures, initiating a sharp – if short lived – sell-off for the Pound, but otherwise it’s all been rather muted.And being realistic, financial markets are never going to be big on the minutiae of a programme of cuts like this. We have all known they are coming, we now know what they are and we all understand the importance of making these moves – if we are going to see further confidence returning to UK Plc it will now be all about the execution. BACK?FROM?THE?BRINKOsborne sees this long term plan as bringing Britain back from the brink and it would seem that overall, the vast majority of the business community is in broad agreement of cuts now rather than later. However, although it is a long term plan that will see success measured over many years, now the speech has been done the financial markets will want to see the processes actually start.After the Chancellor sat down, markets woke up again and we did see fairly steady gains for the pound as the afternoon went – although this is being explained as much as a story of US dollar weakness yet again rather than a euphoric vote of confidence in the cuts. POTENTIAL FOR VOLATILITYThere is still the potential for some volatility as the further details of the plans are revealed – for example today sees what the proposed banking levy is going to mean for that particular sector, where shares have fallen somewhat out of favour with investors in recent months on a valuation basis. Overall there were no nasty surprises. We have seen the City this year go from distinct nervousness faced with the prospect of a hung parliament ahead of the general election to cautious optimism in the months since it became a reality. For now at least, it looks like the new Chancellor is being given the opportunity – and a bit of breathing space from markets – to see if these plans really can sort out the UK’s deficit.David Jones is chief market strategist at IG Index.

Examples of appropriate use might include resolving supplier or intellectual property disputes.”The Commission said it would consider NDAs were being improperly used if their effect was to prevent, impede or deter a person from reporting misconduct or a breach of regulator requirements; reporting an offence to a law enforcement agency; co-operating with a criminal investigation or prosecution or making a protected disclosure under the Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998.The regulator said it could also take action if it found that an NDA was stopping a consumer from seeking treatment for problem gambling and discussing their gambling history with treatment providers, or if its purpose was to influence the substance of such a report, disclosure or co-operation.“If a customer in the course of negotiating a settlement agreement states that they intend to report a matter to the Commission, we expect licensees will normally be able to inform the customer that they have already self-reported the incident,” the Commission said.“When there is a failure to self-report to us…and there has also been a settlement agreement containing an NDA concluded in relation to the underlying facts, this may be seen as an aggravating factor in any regulatory action the Commission may choose to take.”In recent months, the Commission has taken a number of steps in an effort to enhance its consumer protection efforts and responsibly gambling measures. This year, it will launch a new strategy covering 12 priority actions, ranging from consulting a culture of evaluation to piloting intervention. Regions: UK & Ireland 1st February 2019 | By contenteditor The Gambling Commission has warned licensees that using non-disclosure agreements in settlements with customers could prevent consumers from reporting their concerns to the regulator and place operators in breach of their licence conditions.

first_imgAnd according to Fisher, the benefits of improved soil health extend beyond the farm. “Producers who improve the health of their soil are also increasing its water-holding capacity, which reduces runoff that can cause flooding. Improved infiltration keeps nutrients and sediment from being carried off-site into nearby lakes, rivers, and streams,” he said.Source: NRCS Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Mar 27, 2013 Previous articleSeed Consultants 3/27/2013 Market Closing Comment with Gary WilhelmiNext articleSeed Consultants Announces SCMatch™ Hybrid Placement Tool Gary Truitt The possibility of another dry year should also have producers rethinking their use of tillage, Fisher said. “Because it destroys organic matter and soil structure, tillage actually reduces the soil’s infiltration capacity,” he said. “Additionally, studies have shown that each tillage pass can release a half an inch of soil moisture from each acre. In short, tillage tends to limit the availability of water in the soil,” Fisher said. “And that could prove very costly during those long, summer dry spells.” SHARE Facebook Twittercenter_img  Spring tillage is a tradition that is steeped deeply into American agriculture. But more and more producers are realizing that this iconic tradition is costing them – in more ways than one. Tillage, which was once considered necessary in order to prepare a proper seed bed for planting, comes at a high price in terms of increasing diesel prices and labor costs. But according to Barry Fisher, a soil health specialist with USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service in Indianapolis, the bigger, long-term cost may come at the expense of the health and function of the soil itself – resulting in lower yields, higher input costs and reduced drought resiliency for Indiana farms. “Tillage is incredibly destructive to the soil structure and to the soil ecosystem,” Fisher said. “In healthy soil you have 50 percent air and water – which is made possible by the pore space in the soil – and 50 percent mineral and organic matter. But tillage collapses and destroys that structure, making the soil vulnerable to erosion and compaction,” he said. Expert Says “Just Say No To Tillage” Home News Feed Expert Says “Just Say No To Tillage” Fortunately, more and more producers in Indiana are farming with systems to build soil health, Fisher said. “Using a suite of conservation practices, like quality no-till and diverse cover crops,” he said, “they’re keeping living plants in the soil as long as possible and they’re keeping the soil surface covered with residue year round.” SHARElast_img read more

Secretary Vilsack on Proposed FY 2015 USDA Budget U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack says the President’s proposed budget for USDA in fiscal year 2015 achieves reform and results for the American taxpayer; fosters opportunity for the men and women living, working and raising families in rural America; and supports innovation through strategic, future-focused investments. Vilsack says the proposed budget supports farmers, ranchers and growers as they achieve net farm income well above the average of the previous decade. Among other programs – he says it continues to fund programs that – since 2009 – have helped more than 800-thousand families buy, repair or refinance a home; extended new or improved broadband service for more than seven-million Americans and 364-thousand rural businesses; provided grants and loans to assist nearly 75-thousand rural small and mid-sized businesses in rural America. Vilsack says funding for trade promotion and market expansion will also continue. The budget adds about 23-million acres of land to USDA conservation efforts and sustains 25-million acres enrolled in the Conservation Reserve Program as well. According to Vilsack – the 2015 budget makes strategic investments that further innovation and encourage creative approaches to solving rural America’s most pressing challenges. He says the security of the nation’s food and fiber supply depends on what is done to support rural America today. Vilsack says the 2015 budget proposal and the tools provided in the new farm bill will help create jobs and drive long-term, sustainable economic growth in rural America – while equipping farmers and ranchers with the tools they need to survive and thrive. * A total of $878 million to support rural business creation and expansion.

first_img NEW YORK (AP) — Netflix rode the voracious hunger for TV content during a year of pandemic viewership to a dominant showing at the Golden Globe nominations. The streaming giant scooped up 20 small-screen nods — nearly three times as many as its closest competitor, HBO, and beating the 17 TV nominations it got last year. By one estimate, Netflix will spend about $19 billion on video content in 2021. Netflix secured three out of the five nominations for best drama TV series — “The Crown,” “Ozark” and “Ratched” — and four of the five acting nods for best actress in that category for Olivia Colman, Emma Corrin, Laura Linney and Sarah Paulson. “Most folks with their business have one of two things — they have quantity or they have quality. Netflix has both. So naturally they’re going to get more nominations,” said Dan Rayburn, a principal analyst at Frost & Sullivan. Streaming newcomer HBO Max scored two nominations with “The Flight Attendant,” a best comedy TV berth and also earned “The Big Bang Theory” veteran Kaley Cuoco her first Globe nod. The service’s big brother, HBO, earned seven nominations thanks to the psychological thriller “The Undoing” and “Lovecraft Country,” a horror series that mixes the supernatural and racial inequalities. Little-known Pop TV earned five nominations — all for the Canadian comedy “Schitt’s Creek,” which swept the comedy Emmy Awards last year. Catherine O’Hara, Eugene Levy, Annie Murphy, Daniel Levy all got nods. “The Crown” — tracing the history of Queen Elizabeth II — roared to the top of all TV candidates with six nominations, including lead acting nods for Coleman, Corrin and Josh O’Connor as well as supporting nods to Gillian Anderson and Helena Bonham Carter. “The Great,” the coming-of-age comedy Hulu series about Russia’s Catherine the Great and her scandalous ascension to the throne, got three nominations — for best musical or comedy TV show and stars Elle Fanning and Nicholas Hoult. But another crown-connected period piece “Bridgerton” from Netflix failed to earn a single nod despite its popularity. “The Great” now faces “The Flight Attendant,” “Schitt’s Creek,” “Emily in Paris” and “Ted Lasso” for bragging rights to best comedy TV series. Last year, that was “Fleabag.” Apple TV+ scored with the debut series of “Ted Lasso,” in which Jason Sudeikis plays an American football coach who takes charge of an elite British soccer team despite having little knowledge of the game. The show was nominated for best comedy and so was Sudeikis. Other best comedy actor contenders are Eugene Levy for “Schitt’s Creek,” Don Cheadle from “Black Monday,” Hoult from “The Great” and Ramy Youssef from “Ramy,” who currently owns the category crown. A year after traditional broadcast networks were completely shut out in all nominations, NBC was the lone broadcaster represented Wednesday, scoring a nod for “Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist” star Jane Levy, playing a computer coder who hears and sees people express their inner thoughts through music. Netflix’s “Ratched,” Ryan Murphy’s backstory of the notorious nurse from “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” earned three nominations despite poor reviews. Stars Sarah Paulson and Cynthia Nixon both got nominations. “Ratched” will do battle for the best drama on TV with “The Crown,” “Lovecraft Country,” “Ozark” and “The Mandalorian.” Last year, “Succession” won it. Another notable snub on the TV side was “Dead to Me,” which earned four nominations last year. This year, Christina Applegate’s show got none. ——— Online: Twitter WhatsApp Netflix once again dominates Golden Globe TV nominations Pinterest Pinterest WhatsApp TAGS  center_img Facebook Facebook Twitter Local NewsUS News By Digital AIM Web Support – February 3, 2021 Previous articleGlobal OLED Microdisplays Market Trajectory & Analytics Report 2020: Market to Reach $153.8 Million by 2027 – U.S. Market is Estimated at $13.6 Million, While China is Forecast to Grow at 18.2% CAGR – ResearchAndMarkets.comNext article$24.3 Billion Growth in Global Educational Toys Market | Increasing Demand for Smart Toys to Boost Growth |Technavio Digital AIM Web Supportlast_img read more
