No InstallTaonga: The Island Farm A KEY part of US President Barack Obama’s landmark healthcare law was declared unconstitutional yesterday, in the first major setback on an issue that will likely end up at the Supreme Court.District judge Henry Hudson backed the state of Virginia’s argument that Congress exceeded its authority by requiring Americans to start buying health insurance in 2014 or face a fine, adding that the provisions invite an “unbridled exercise of federal police powers”.But he declined to invalidate the entire healthcare law, a small victory for Obama, whose administration will appeal the decision.Health insurers’ stock prices initially rose on the ruling before later tapering off as investors saw more uncertainty as the case proceeds. The ruling signalled that changes to the bill rather than a full overhaul are more realistic.

Property experts tip residential as a prime target for investment

first_img whatsapp Show Comments ▼ KCS-content whatsapp Sunday 30 January 2011 10:42 pm PROPERTY investors plan to cash in on the fragile parts of the residential market over the next 12 months, according to survey figures released today. Just 13 per cent of the 146 property professionals surveyed by Investec believe that residential property values will go up in the next year. Almost half (49 per cent) expect average prices to decline, and one in eight predict a fall of between six and 10 per cent during 2011. Housing was ranked the most attractive buy for property investors this year, with retail and leisure properties ranked joint second best. One in three investors surveyed expects yields to increase this year, while 14 per cent predict a drop. The findings support a poll of economists by Reuters last week that suggested a decline of around two per cent in average UK house prices over the next year. Gary Dobson of Investec’s Structured Property Finance division said: “Residential property values in the UK remain depressed compared to their peak. “This should create some great opportunities for investors as they take advantage of low valuations and higher yields.” Sharecenter_img Property experts tip residential as a prime target for investment by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal 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 AthletesBetterBeLuxury SUVs | Search AdsThese Cars Are So Loaded It’s Hard to Believe They’re So CheapLuxury SUVs | Search AdsMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’DefinitionTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Brian Brick breathes new life into outfitter

first_img Share Brian Brick breathes new life into outfitter KCS-content Monday 7 February 2011 8:47 pm whatsapp whatsapp BRIAN Brick is in the middle of a turnaround plan to restore Moss Bros to health after the ailing 88-year-old retailer lost its way. His reputation in the clothing industry is that of an effective, low-key retailer with an eye for detail. The scale of his task was shown by a pre-tax loss of £3m in the first six months of 2009. The performance of the hire shop was in particular hit by the downturn in corporate hospitality.But Brick is an experienced retailer who built up a family business.In 1985 Brick and his brother Alex took over his father’s menswear business and re-branded it “Suits You”. They built this into a multi-brand menswear business and sold SRG (Speciality Retail Group) to Gresham Private equity in 2005. SRG was the parent company of Suits You. Brick became a non-executive director at Moss Bros in September 2008, and chief executive in January 2009. He took the post after the former chief executive Philip Mountford had departed and Moss Bros had also faced an aborted £40m takeover by the now defunct Icelandic retail investor Baugur.Brick lives in Stanmore, Middlesex.HAWKPOINTALTIUM CAPITALHAWKPOINT was the lead adviser for Moss Bros on the Boss deal. Altium Capital was also involved in the negotiations which, because of the long relationship between the two retailers, went smoothly. As a Boss franchisee, the team at Moss knew their counterparts well and the price and details of the sale were agreed by the two parties without any posturing or tough talking, said those close to the deal. The fact that Moss will still stock some Boss items in its stores will see the relationship continue in some form. Hawkpoint advises corporates, financial institutions, private equity houses and governments throughout Europe. The company employs 100 staff in London, Paris and Frankfurt.Meanwhile international investment bank Altium was also in the background, helping the deal through.It specialises in acquisitions and disposals. Moss Bros chief executive Brian Brick described the negotiations as like “dealing with friends” as the agreement was signed and sealed without any fuss. center_img Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofHomemade Tomato Soup: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof Show Comments ▼ by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen HeraldSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’DefinitionTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Tribunals cost firms £1.6bn

first_img EMPLOYMENT tribunals cost UK businesses a staggering £1.6bn in 2010, according to new figures released today. According to Ambition, the global recruitment firm, just one in twenty HR professionals fully understands the employment tribunal process.That means the majority of firms – one in five – settle every single tribunal case before they get to court, even if they have a good chance of winning. The average cost of settling a tribunal is £5,400 while an employer who chooses to defend themselves will typically pay £8,500. That is before one counts the amount of business hours that are lost to tribunal sessions and meetings with lawyers. Tim Gilbert, UK managing director of Ambition said: “High costs, a lack of understanding and worry over bad publicity means the majority of business decide to settle claims before they end up in court”.Vince Cable, business secretary, is planning to introduce changes to make tribunals fairer for employers.
