Underlying earnings per share rose 20 per cent to 40.5p from 33.8p the previous year as it shrugged off the insurance market’s current low premium environment. Chief executive Dominic Burke told City A.M. he felt the insurance market was close to “an inflection point” as companies started to show signs associated with returning to premium rises.“We are seeing some important indicators to lead us to suggest we may be coming to the end of the softer market,” he said. “We are seeing people write business for market share, and comments about companies underwriting without discipline.“There seems to be evidence indicating that the market is getting to a turning point. We see this inflection point coming because the current model is not sustainable.”JLT’s total revenue increased 21 per cent to £746.3m from £619.3m in 2009 including seven per cent organic revenue growth, seven per cent growth from acquisitions and seven per cent due to exchange rate benefits.Revenues rose 17 per cent to £576.6m in its risk and insurance division, which accounts for almost 80 per cent of its business through its retail and London market lines. Its retail business grew 23 per cent as Latin American revenues rose 44 per cent while Asia revenues rose 26 per cent. In contrast, its European arm remained flat at one per cent growth. “We are very excited about our performance in developing markets,” Burke said.

This house, located in the city of Ghent, was developed in order to provide a generous and spacious family home on a very narrow plot.Save this picture!© Stijn BollaertThe various residential functions are stacked in split levels around a central staircase. This strengthens the relationship between the various compact residential functions and creates a unique spatiality, turning the house into a collection of linked spaces.Save this picture!© Stijn BollaertSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Stijn BollaertThe layout of the house was completely reversed by placing the living areas upstairs and the sleeping areas below. Compensating for the limited surface area of the house is the beautiful city view. On the ground floor, facing the street is a multi-purpose reception room that is connected to an inner courtyard. Behind this courtyard is an office/studio space which is situated across two levels.Save this picture!© Stijn BollaertSave this picture!© Stijn BollaertThis ground-level configuration ensures that the connection to the street is kept alive despite the fact that the house is organised upside down. There is one window in the sidewall in the kitchen. This window welcomes in the midday sun and ensures a view of the adjacent city archive building. In addition to the central staircase, there is a lift in the facade area. The house has a simple structure, that is readable in the interior finish. The facade finish comprises stainless steel corrugated sheets and a concrete plinth with a similar wavy surface.Save this picture!© Stijn BollaertProject gallerySee allShow lessPaul Clemence Releases New Images Highlighting SHoP’s 111 West 57th in ProgressArchitecture NewsUrban Agency Reimagines Irish Terraced Homes in DublinArchitecture News Share CopyAbout this officeNU architectuuratelierOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesGhentOn FacebookBelgiumPublished on March 19, 2021Cite: “Bagattenstraat House / NU architectuuratelier” 19 Mar 2021.

If Money Talks, What Does it Say?: Corruption and Business Financing of Political Parties (Comparative Politics) Howard Lake | 7 April 2013 | Books News 46 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis [amzn_product_post]Why do businesses contribute to political parties? Is money a universal language? Do business contributions to political parties convey different messages in different countries?This book answers these questions based on intensive case studies of Australia, Canada, and Germany, as well as data from other countries. Advertisement Business money does talk politics. In liberal Australia and Canada, the competitive short-term focus of firms generated substantial demand for private goods that could help firms develop an advantage over their rivals. Thus, business financing of parties conveyed a pragmatic message: in exchange for small but certain financial benefits, contributing businesses expect, as a reciprocation, to receive special consideration of their lobbying efforts.Australia’s left-right party system created an awareness of policy risk, which motivated ideological payments, but there was no ideological bias in business financing of politics in centrist Canada. In Germany’s co-ordinated economy, the most important policies for firms tend to be the public goods defined, championed, and delivered by their business associations. In this context, the pragmatic motivation for contributions to political parties is weak.The combination of consensual political institutions and constrained parties means there is a very low risk of major policy change from election to election. So, there is also little interest in ideological financing of political parties.If money talks, what does it say? places business financing of political parties in the context of debates about political corruption and offers advice on political reform.Comparative Politics is a series for students, teachers, and researchers of political science that deals with contemporary government and politics. Global in scope, books in the series are characterised by a stress on comparative analysis and strong methodological rigour. The series is published in association with the European Consortium for Political Research. For more information visit:www.ecprnet.eu The Comparative Politics series is edited by Professor David M. Farrell, School of Politics and International Relations, University College Dublin, Kenneth Carty, Professor of Political Science, University of British Columbia, and Professor Dirk Berg-Schlosser, Institute of Political Science, Philipps University, Marburg.

Along the way, Perdue will meet with farmers, ranchers, foresters, producers, students, governors, Members of Congress, U.S. Department of Agriculture employees, and others, according to USDA. Secretary Perdue, in a statement, says the tour will allow USDA to hear directly from people in agriculture across the country, as well as from consumers.The Secretary will arrive in Indiana on Tuesday, August 8. His first stop will be the Indianapolis Colts training facility on the west side of Indianapolis.

Then he will attend the Indiana State Fair where he will meet with Governor Eric Holcomb, Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch, Indiana Farm Bureau President Randy Kron, and a select group of farm leaders.
