Small business spared red tape

first_img Share Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULL Small business spared red tape whatsapp whatsappcenter_img Sunday 13 March 2011 10:14 pm The government is expected to announce plans to exempt small and medium sized businesses from a raft of expensive regulations at the Budget on 23 March. The “small enterprise exemption initiative” would see firms with just a handful of employees – most likely five or less – exempted from a range of regulatory burdens. Employees at these firms would be unable to request flexible working, for example, and could see their maternity or paternity leave entitlement cut. The government is hoping that businesses will use the money they save from not having to comply with the onerous rules to take on new staff. But Labour’s shadow chancellor Ed Balls said the plans were “ideological claptrap” that threatened employees’ “work-life balance”.

The 5 big talking points from the 2023 Rugby World Cup draw

first_imgMonday Dec 14, 2020 The 5 big talking points from the 2023 Rugby World Cup draw The 2023 Rugby World Cup pool draw took place today in Paris confirming the pools for the 10th edition of the tournament. Teams can now start to plan their campaigns, but there are many talking points. ADVERTISEMENTThe pools are as follows, with World Champions South Africa in Pool B and hosts France in Pool A alongside RWC rivals New Zealand.RWC 2023 – POOLSPool A: New Zealand, France, Italy, Americas 1, Africa 1Pool B: South Africa, Ireland, Scotland, Asia/Pacific 1, Europe 2Pool C: Wales, Australia, Fiji, Europe 1, Final Qualifier WinnerPool D: England, Japan, Argentina, Oceania 1, Americas 2Here, PA news agency look at the main talking points.England cannot complainEngland have unquestionably landed the most straightforward of groups, with Japan, Argentina and qualifiers from Oceania and the Americas on their 2023 agenda.Japan were quarter-finalists when they hosted the World Cup last year, but are unlikely to have the forward power to threaten an England side coached by their former supremo Eddie Jones. But while the pool seems easy enough, England’s route through the knockout phase could feature, as in 2019, southern hemisphere heavyweights Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.Wales fed up of Australia and FijiIt is a case of same-again, yet again for Wales. For the third successive World Cup, they have been drawn in the same group as Australia and Fiji – and it is the fifth time in a row for them to face the Fijians.Wales, under Warren Gatland, beat both opponents in Japan last year, which meant topping the group and securing a quarter-final against France. England are likely to await them this time around, though, if Wayne Pivac’s team finish second in their pool. There is a lot of water to go under the bridge before 2023, but even this far out, Wales know what is coming.Ireland or Scotland set for an early exit?As in 2019, Six Nations rivals Ireland and Scotland will meet in the pool stage, and this time around, they have the added problem of also tackling world champions South Africa.Ireland won comfortably in Japan last year, but they had to settle for runners-up spot after losing to Japan, while Scotland bowed out as group stage casualties. Scotland have lost nine of their last 10 games against Ireland, and suffered six successive defeats at South Africa’s hands, while Ireland have toppled the Springboks six times in the last 10 encounters. Scotland, in theory, have it all to do.France-New Zealand must be the tournament openerThe 2023 World Cup fixture schedule is not expected to be announced until late February, but one decision that tournament organisers should not spend long contemplating is which two countries kick things off. Hosts France, resurgent under head coach Fabien Galthie, have been drawn in the same group as three-time world champions New Zealand.That would provide a glittering spectacle, potentially under the floodlights at Stade de France, giving the competition a dream launch, especially if Les Bleus triumph.A lot can happen in three yearsIt is often difficult to predict the form of rugby union’s landscape in three months’ time, let alone three years, which is why not too much can be read into the 2023 World Cup line-up at this stage.Yes, the big guns – countries like England, South Africa and New Zealand – will still be exactly that, but will France have overtaken all of them by then and become the world’s top team?ADVERTISEMENTHow many current coaches will still be in their jobs? How many current top players might have retired? How will the sport itself have evolved? Questions, questions.

Barges Stalled on Ohio River

first_img Barges Stalled on Ohio River Another lock and dam closure along the Ohio river stalled more than 500 barges waiting to pass through. The Waterways Council said late last week the issue was related to rising river conditions, which boosted water levels above maximum operating limits. However, water levels were expected to fall back below the maximum locking stage by the start of this week. The closure is the second at lock and dam 52, which closed last month to replace wooden wickets.Another lock was closed last month because the gates could not close properly. River levels have changed over the last week. However, this harvest season, basis levels for grain have dropped along river markets that ship the crops from the Midwest to New Orleans for export. That is because water levels across the waterways system have been low and lock and dam failures are slowing barge traffic.Source: NAFB News service Previous articleGreen Stem SyndromeNext articleBASF to Acquire Bayer’s Crop Science Unit NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter By NAFB News Service – Oct 15, 2017 Facebook Twitter SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Barges Stalled on Ohio River SHARElast_img read more

At the beginning of each year, Maranatha’s Associated Student Body plans an entire day for encouraging community, purpose, and fun! During Uprising this year, students had the opportunity to go to chapel, play group games such as “Human Foosball”, “Human Hamster Ball Racing”, boxing, ping pong, and basketball tournaments, as well as enjoy free Chick-fil-A lunch and play on giant bounce houses and jump in the pool. Students ended the day with an enormous paint and shaving cream war leaving them covered in color. More than anything, they left with a few more friends and a strong sense of community.This year, Maranatha’s ASB decided to extend the fun and incorporate a “Back to School Bash” concert and Food Truck Fest for the whole family immediately following Uprising. Families came to campus to enjoy hit Christian band Gungor with additional musical guests Tenth & California and Isla Vista Worship. Although ASB students were exhausted at the end of the day, they felt it was worth it for a great start to the 2015-2016 year.Maranatha High School, 169 S.

Culture Vulture

first_imgAuroraPegasus Theatre7 October, 8pmThe Biserk Dance Company makes a welcome return to the Pegasus Theatre on Magdalen Road with Aurora. After their successful 2004 tour entitled One Third of a Picture, the acclaimed choreographer Nickely Burke revisits the group’s unique movement styles in three riveting acts which form the overall programme of the evening.As is common practice with the group, the first piece, Aurora, takes its inspiration from nature, in this case the flickering lights of the Aurora Borealis. The carving of intricate patterns in space and the emphasis upon the dancers’ feet and hands explores both shifts in dynamics and the strange and changing aspects of human nature. Speakeasy, the second act of the evening, sees a fusion of physical theatre and contemporary drama. One is promised witty interpretations on reality and perception which gradually reveal the hidden stories of the characters.The third and final instalment, a lyrical duet entitled Blood, Sweat and Tears, has potential to be the pinnacle of the evening’s entertainment. Performed to Spanish classical music, the choreography reflects the passionate relationship of the two protagonists and the tension of their struggle to be together. The nature of their relationship is volatile yet tender. It is this conflict which will be explored through movement on stage, evoking a world where light meets dark and joy meets pain.Chiltern Sculpture TrailCowleaze Wood, Oxfordshire8 OctoberSimilarly inspired by forms in nature is the concept that has emerged over the past two decades of separating art from the gallery. Removing art from the sanctity of the exhibition room may seem foolhardy but therein lays its peculiar appeal: separated from the man-made, the sculptures both mimic nature and yet seem out of place. It is this paradox which will interest and excite many visitors to the Chiltern Sculpture Trail.Founded with the intention of displaying works not normally associated with the outside, the Chiltern Sculpture trail embraces art from a wide range of styles and media, all contributed by artists from around the country. On 8th October the Chiltern Sculpture Trail will play host to contributing artists Jo Stockham and Rosemarie McGoldrick, who will be discussing their involvement with the Trail. Later in the day, the artist Jacqueline Pearce will be talking about her exciting new commission. It is a must attend event for those with an interest in the shifting nature of contemporary sculpture and its ever-changing relationship with the environment. For those less enraptured with the trappings of modern art, the sedate natural setting of the forest itself will provide ample relief from the hustle and bustle of Oxford life.ARCHIVE: 0th week MT 2005last_img read more
