Republicans still fighting to repeal Obama’s health rules

first_img REPUBLICANS in the House of Representatives plan to hold a vote this month to repeal President Barack Obama’s healthcare overhaul and say they have nearly enough support to override a presidential veto of the repeal, a top lawmaker said yesterday.“Unpopularity numbers are as high as 60 per cent across the country,” Fred Upton, the incoming chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, said of the healthcare law.“I don’t think we’re going to be that far off from having the votes to actually override a veto,” Upton said.Democrats contend Republicans are wasting Congress’ time by staging a healthcare repeal vote, saying it will die in the Democratic-controlled Senate.But Upton said a big House vote for repeal could sway votes in the Senate “to perhaps do the same thing. But then, after that, we’re going to go after this bill piece by piece,” he said, by trying to block various parts of the law including an individual mandate for insurance coverage.But Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a Democrat, said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” that people are learning more about benefits of the healthcare law, diminishing chances it will be defeated.“It’s not going to happen,” she said.

WHAT DOES THE CHANCELLOR’S BUDGET MEAN FOR YOU?

first_img CATHERINE GANNON, 48MANAGING DIRECTOR OF CITY LAW FIRM GANNONS LAW LLPCatherine is single with two children, earns a gross income of over £100,000 a year and pays a mortgage on her family home. She has a share portfolio and also has mortgages on various investment properties. She does not drink or smoke. She has not contributed much to her pension plans.PwC’s BUDGET TEAM SAYS: Catherine was already resigned to the fact she will be losing her entitlement to child benefit from 2013 and this has not changed following this budget. She is unlikely to benefit much from the increased personal allowance as her income falls into a band where this is eroded by £1 for every £2 she earns over £100,000. There was some good news for Catherine, with the capital gains tax annual exemption increased to £10,600 should she decide to sell some of the investments in her share portfolio. There is potential for her to diversify these investments and invest in Enterprise Investment Schemes. The government announced an extension of the tax advantages – the highlight being a 10 per cent increase of tax relief to 30 per cent. She may also wish to start paying into her private pension plans, with the gross annual limits from 6 April 2011 increased from £30,000 to £50,000. Catherine’s healthy lifestyle choice means she is sheltered from the usual alcohol and tobacco duty increases.JONNY SAYLE, 25FOUNDER OF SPIRELIFE, A FITNESS CONCIERGE FIRM FOR CITY WORKERSJonny set up his firm, which provides personal training, physio and massage services to clients in their own homes and offices, in December. He is targeting turnover of £75,000 for this year and hopes to take home a salary of £40,000. He does not currently have a pension plan or a mortgage, but is hoping to buy his house soon. He travels by scooter but tries to cycle as much as he can. He does not smoke and drinks moderately.PwC’s BUDGET TEAM SAYS: Jonny may be concerned about the impact of the increased banks’ levy, with many of his customers potentially working in the city’s banks. Unfortunately there is no opportunity for Jonny to opt out of the VAT scheme as the registration limit has been set at £73,000 from April 2011. As he is close to this threshold, he should monitor his profits carefully going forward for the opportunity to de-register, which would occur once his turnover sinks to below £71,000 and would thus reduce the cost to his customers. Jonny will be pleased to hear that fuel duty has been lowered by 1p per litre when he next comes to refuel his scooter, yet may be disappointed with the two per cent above inflation increase in alcohol duty. But if he enjoys a beer, he should consider switching to a low strength alternative to benefit from the lower rates when they are implemented in October. LAURA MUCHA, 28ASSOCIATE AT NORTON ROSELaura lives in central London, she doesn’t own a car as she is on the bike scheme and goes everywhere on it. She is still paying off her student loan with only one year left. She makes £63,500 a year as a first-year qualified solicitor in the firm’s disputes practice and contributes to the firm’s pension scheme. She is not married and has no children. A non-smoker, she drinks on weekends or at social functions but stays away from cider.PwC’s BUDGET TEAM SAYS: Happily, Laura will not be affected by the recent dramatic petrol increases given that she cycles everywhere on her bike purchased via the tax advantageous cycle to work scheme. So she will not benefit from the fuel measure.She will be hit by the one per cent increase in employees’ national insurance.Laura may wish to restrict her drinking habits to lower strength beers given the budget announcement of a 50 per cent reduction in duty. She should be mindful to avoid “super strength” beers given the 25 per cent increase in duty as announced in the budget.ADAM HART, 47CHAIRMAN OF LONDON BRIDGE CAPITALAdam is married with three children aged 11,13 and 15. He founded a corporate finance advisory firm specialising in the environmental economy. He makes well over £150,000 a year in salary and bonus. In addition to his main residence, he has a flat in London and a home in Canada, though the mortgages are paid off. He has a self-invested personal pension plan (SIPP). He does not smoke but does drink a moderate amount socially.PwC’s BUDGET TEAM SAYS: Adam will be encouraged by the announcement of further government investment of £2bn in the Green Investment Bank. This will specialise in lending for environmental projects and should be up and running by 2012. He will also be buoyed by the two per cent reduction in corporation tax from April 2011 and the further one per cent falls in each of the following three tax years. New pension rules dictate that from 5 April 2011 Adam will be able to make a gross contribution of up to £50,000 into his SIPP plus bring forward any unused relief from the three previous tax years based on a £50,000 annual limit. The one per cent increase in national insurance will unfortunately hit Adam’s take home pay. He should also prepare himself for being unable to claim child benefit given that he is a higher rate tax payer. It is envisaged that this will be taken away in January 2013.RICHARD DIFFENTHAL, 30ASSOCIATE AT LOVELLSRichard is a corporate solicitor. He has an 18 month old son and rents a property with his wife. They are hoping to get on to the property ladder soon. They have one car but Richard travels to and from work by public transport. He has been flying more frequently than he has before. Richard takes home around £100,000 including bonus a year and contributes to the firm’s pension scheme. He doesn’t smoke and drinks in moderation.PwC’s BUDGET TEAM SAYS: Despite the recent dramatic fuel increases Richard will be moderately pleased with the slight respite of the 1p decrease per litre and the introduction of measures by the chancellor to stabilise future price fluctuations. Unfortunately the help for first time buyers, as announced by George Osborne, will be of little help to Richard. But he will benefit from buying into a subdued market.Any increase in salary from Lovells would of course be welcome but Richard should be mindful that as he broaches the £100,000 mark he will start to lose his personal allowance. For the 2011-12 tax year, once his gross salary exceeds £114,950 he will lose his personal allowance completely. Richard will also be faced with the withdrawal of his entitlement to child benefit in January 2013 given his level of income.ANDREW GREVETT, 28BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT MANAGERAndrew is engaged and lives with his partner, has no children and earns a basic salary of £60,000 a year. He owns a flat in London, which he lets out, and a house in Brentwood, Essex. Both properties are on two-year fixed rate mortgages. He pays £250 a month into a private pension and saves for the long term using a standard savings account.PwC’s BUDGET TEAM SAYS: Andrew will be worse off from 6 April 2011 due to the one per cent increase in employees’ National Insurance. This will be offset slightly in April next year when he will benefit from an increase in the personal allowance of £630 but he will have a year to wait for that gain.The extension in pension relief which will allow him to make a gross contribution of up to £50,000 per tax year may well be of interest long term, should Andrew’s income increase dramatically over the next couple of years. Andrew may wish to consider switching his savings account to a cash ISA to shelter up to £5,340 worth of capital per year from taxation.

The duo cut down on risky scoring shots and played for time.But they couldn’t last long, as Head played on off Ishant Sharma (1-37) in the 51st over.

But Cummins arrived at the crease to defy India, even as Starc was bowled off a rash swing against Mohammed Shami (2-71).India tried everything possible to get the final two wickets, with skipper Virat Kohli even convincing the umpires to go for the extra half-hour/eight overs seeing the possibility of a result.Cummins though stood defiant as he brought up his second Test half-century off 86 balls, capping a fine day of Test cricket after taking career-best figures of 6-27 in the morning session.Earlier, at tea, Australia were reduced to 138 for five.

The duo checked their shot selection, even as India wasted a review against Khawaja in Jadeja’s first over.The spinner struck in the 10th over though as a bat-pad chance got stuck under Agarwal’s arm at short leg and Harris had to walk back, causing further trouble for Australia.In the morning, India had batted 52 minutes and extended their second innings from overnight 54 for five even as threat of rain loomed large.Play started on time though and India were batting with a plan to reach the 400-lead mark as quickly as possible.Mayank (42) opened up with a couple sixes off Nathan Lyon (0-40) and made intentions clear, but was bowled off Cummins before he could get a second half-century in his maiden Test.Rishabh Pant (33) and Ravindra Jadeja (5) threw their bats around to add 17 runs. They didn’t waste time in farming strike, with Cummins missing out on his five-wicket haul when Tim Paine dropped Pant early in the session.He returned to pick up his sixth wicket when Jadeja gloved a catch to gully, beating his previous best of 6-79 against South Africa back in 2011.India declared with Pant’s dismissal in the 38th over.The visitors had scored 443 for seven declared in the first innings thanks to Cheteshwar Pujara’s 17th Test hundred.

Stock market crash: I think now’s the time to buy UK shares as dividends recover strongly in Q3 Royston Wild | Wednesday, 21st October, 2020 2020 has been a nightmare year for investors seeking big dividends from UK shares. Shareholder payouts have been slashed left, right and centre as companies have scrambled to protect their balance sheets. A great many UK shares decided to stop paying dividends altogether following the onset of Covid-19.More than half of FTSE 100 companies alone have either reduced, ceased, or postponed dividends in 2020. But recent data suggests the environment is finally beginning to improve for UK share investors.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Dividends from UK shares are improvingAccording to Link Group, dividends paid by UK shares almost halved during the third quarter on a headline basis, to £18bn. The 49.1% fall meant total dividends came in at their lowest for any third quarter since 2010.But, encouragingly, the tide is beginning to turn. Link Group says that two-thirds of UK shares either cut or cancelled dividends during the last quarter. This compares with around 75% who took similar action during quarter two.The data led Susan Ring, chief executive of Corporate Markets at Link Group, to comment: “UK plc is not out of the woods, but the trees are perhaps thinning a bit… As companies become better able to assess the impact of the pandemic and the associated restrictions on their operations, some are restarting dividends and a handful are even making up some of the lost ground.”Ring expects further hefty year-on-year declines in total dividends paid in the final quarter of 2020 and the first quarter of 2021. However, she expects the rebound to begin from next April, the anniversary of mass global lockdowns following the Covid-19 outbreak.Dividends to rebound in 2021?The improvement in the dividend performance of UK shares during the third quarter led Link Group to again reduce its worst-case scenario for 2020. It now expects total annual dividends to fall between 38.7% and 39.2% year on year.And next year, the financial data giant reckons annual dividends will rise between 6% and 15% from this year’s levels.The improved dividend landscape is, of course, hugely encouraging. But it’s clear UK investors need to remain cautious before buying shares in the hope of big dividends. We remain in the depths of a pandemic and lockdown barriers are being put back up all over the world. The outlook for the global economy, and as a consequence for UK plc profits, remains highly uncertain.Still, there are plenty of UK shares dividend hunters can rely on. For example, you and I can invest in traditionally-defensive stocks whose earnings remain robust during economic upturns and downturns. Such companies include defence contractors, general insurance providers, utilities and telecoms providers, to name just a handful. And, with the help of The Motley Fool and its huge library of special reports, you can find even more rock-solid UK shares that should pay big dividends, whatever happens to the global economy.

6%+ dividend yields! 4 UK shares I’d buy in my Stocks and Shares ISA for 2021

first_img See all posts by Royston Wild Royston Wild | Saturday, 28th November, 2020 Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Image source: Getty Images UK share markets have rocketed in recent weeks as hopes of a Covid-19 vaccine have risen. The FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 both touched multi-month highs as confidence rushed back into equity markets. Good news for investor sentiment, which has been under pressure for most of 2020. But I’m not getting too excited.There are several reasons why the British economy, and by extension some UK  shares, might struggle in 2021. First off is the possibility that Covid-19 infection rates will keep ballooning before a vaccine become available. Another is that any formula to battle the coronavirus might not be as effective as first hoped. Finally, the growing threat of a no-deal Brexit also looms large over the outlook for next year.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Looking on the bright sideWorrying comments this week from Chancellor of the Exchequer underlined the scale of the challenges in 2021 and beyond. During his Spending Review, Rishi Sunak said that “the economic emergency has only just begun” and that “the economic damage [of Covid-19] is likely to be lasting.”UK share investors clearly need to remain careful. It doesn’t mean that I’ll stop buying British equities for my Stocks and Shares ISA though. There are still plenty of London-quoted stocks that should deliver brilliant near-term returns, despite the tough economic landscape. And many of these can be picked up at bargain-basement prices following the early 2020 stock market crash.4 top UK shares for my ISAHere are four top UK shares I’d buy for 2021. I think they should continue paying huge dividends, whatever happens to the British economy:Aviva’s 7% dividend yields for 2021 make the FTSE 100 insurer too cheap to miss in my book. This UK share has a long record of paying big dividends to its shareholders, and the sale of its Aviva Vita Italian joint venture this week will provide extra firepower for it to continue down this path.Vodafone Group’s 5% dividend yield for this fiscal year (to March 2021) might not be as impressive. But it still makes mincemeat of the broader FTSE 100 forward average of around 3.5%. The telecoms titan is a cash-making machine and this, along with its defensive operations, should allow it to keep paying big dividends, despite macroeconomic uncertainty.I’d also bank on Sabre Insurance Group remaining a top income play for 2021. The defensive nature of the car insurance provider’s operations should give it the confidence to keep paying large dividends, despite the poor UK economic outlook. This particular UK share yields a gigantic 6% for 2021.Drax Group’s another stock from the FTSE 250 which, thanks to its 6% dividend yield for 2021, is a terrific buy, I feel. The power plant operator’s services will remain in high demand, whatever broader economic conditions are like. And this month the UK share refinanced its revolving credit facility to give it extra financial firepower for next year. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.

first_imgSam Tuitupou, the Munster player (No 12) today (Wednesday, 13 October) appeared at the ERC Offices in Dublin for a disciplinary hearing before an independent judicial officer as a result of a citing complaint arising from the Round 1 Heineken Cup match between London Irish and Munster at the Madejski Stadium on Saturday, 9 October.The citing complaint was for a dangerous tackle in contravention of Law 10.4(j) (which is specifically concerned with lifting a player and dropping or driving him into the ground).  In particular, Mr Tuitupou was alleged to have committed a dangerous tackle of that type on London Irish scrum half Paul Hodgson (No 9).Mr Tuitupou pleaded not guilty to the citing complaint.  After considering the evidence and hearing submissions on behalf of Mr Tuitupou and from Roger O’Connor, ERC’s Disciplinary Officer, the independent judicial officer, Simon Thomas (Wales), determined that Mr Tuitupou had committed the act of foul play and imposed a suspension of three (3) weeks. Mr Tuitupou will be free to play again on 1 November, 2010.Under the Disciplinary Rules for the 2010/11 Heineken Cup, independent judicial officers are required to follow the sanctioning regime laid down by the International Rugby Board.  Accordingly, having found that Mr Tuitupou had committed an act of foul play, the independent judicial officer was required to determine the ‘entry point’ for Mr Tuitupou’s suspension, based on an assessment of the seriousness of his actions. In this case, the independent judicial officer determined that the appropriate ‘entry point’ was lower end, ie three (3) weeks based on (among other things) Mr Tuitupou’s recklessness and the injuries sustained by Mr Hodgson.  The independent judicial officer increased the suspension from the entry point by one (1) week to take into account the need for a deterrent to combat this type of offending, and then balanced this by decreasing the suspension by one (1) week to take into account Mr Tuitupou’s conduct at the hearing, which resulted in the final suspension of three (3) weeks.The independent judicial officer ordered Mr Tuitupou to pay costs. The possible ‘entry points’ for an infringement of Law 10.4(j) are lower end: three (3) weeks; mid-range: six (6) weeks; and top end: 10 weeks or more.  Having determined the appropriate ‘entry point’, the independent judicial officer was then required to consider whether that ‘entry point’ should be varied to take into account any mitigating factors (such as the player’s conduct, remorse and plea) and any aggravating factors (such as his previous record and any need for deterrence).center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

Nigel Owens gets slightly mixed reviews for enforcing the five second law

first_imgMonday Sep 28, 2020 Nigel Owens gets slightly mixed reviews for enforcing the five second law Referee Nigel Owens has received many plaudits after some of the decisions he made in Racing 92’s Heineken Champions Cup semi-final victory over Saracens on Saturday.ADVERTISEMENTThe Welshman noticeably penalised Racing 92 scrum-half Teddy Iribaren in the first half for failing to use the ball at the base of the ruck, despite his calls of “use it”. This is a law that is seldom enforced by referees, and Owens has consequently received a lot of praise online for his decision, as this is a longstanding bugbear of many fans.The laws of rugby state: “When the ball has been clearly won by a team at the ruck, and is available to be played, the referee calls “use it”, after which the ball must be played away from the ruck within five seconds.”The sanction for failing to do so is a scrum, and though it seems so simple in theory, it is less so in practice.The match was hotly officiated at the breakdown, with zero tolerance for any players impeding the tempo of the game. Even when considering that, it is still surprising that a player was called up for failing to use the ball, despite that being the law.Later on in the match, Owens again blew Saracens up for being in front of the kicker, another area the game that is rarely picked up by officials.Owens did not let the magnitude nor the context of the game deter him from enforcing the law. Iribaren was penalised five metres from his own line, while Saracens were called up for being in front of the kicker at a kickoff in the dying moments of the match, as the London side were desperate to regain possession.ADVERTISEMENTOwens has even offered a riposte on social media to those that have suggested the Frenchman Iribaren may not have understood the command “use it”.He is unconvinced that players from France do not understand that command, whilst also saying that it is a tall order to expect referees to speak “Welsh, Italian, Fijian, South African, Spanish, Georgian, Russian, Irish Gaelic, Scottish Gaelic, Tongan, Samoan, Japanese.”Though it is promising that such overlooked infringements were noticed in this match, one swallow does not make a summer, and it is still unlikely that these will be frequently picked up. Moreover, there are still more laws, such as not feeding straight at scrums, that still irritate spectators. But this was a start.It’s about time more refs don’t do this, so sick of the 5 second rule being abused, also think the clock should be stopped until the ball is out of the scrum— john mcsorley (@johnmcsorley335) September 26, 2020ADVERTISEMENTWell Done Nigel Owens.

The varied requirements of three generations of family living together shaped the brief from the clients. Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellThree wings are connected via a functional spine, whilst the archetypal Australian backyard is reoriented to the front of the house in the form of a central, alfresco entertaining area that merges seamlessly with the indoor living space. Each of the spaces is open and clean-lined, dominated by a tactile finishes palette of stone, glass and warm timber. Within this framework, each wing reflects the personality of its inhabitants through custom designed joinery and fittings and furniture selections. Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellBlue stone, a quintessentially Victorian material, wraps through vertical and horizontal planes to form warm and tactile kitchen benches and bathroom vanities. The internal blue stone flooring also continues through to outside living areas where, in conjunction with extensive use of glazing, it acts to further dissolve the barriers between inside and out – from generation to generation. Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellThe family’s Italian heritage places importance on the role that cooking plays in their personal and social lives. Separate cooking facilities are provided in the Grandmother’s wing, her daughter’s wing and in the outdoor area connecting the generations. Each kitchen was designed to suit its primary inhabitants’ cooking style whether it be restrained and clean or open and chaotic.
