Colleges Deny “Rent Conspiracy”

first_imgA number of JCR Presidents believe that an inter-collegiate conspiracy is to blame for soaring student accommodation costs across Oxford University. Suspicions were raised after JCRs at several colleges reported a lack of negotiation and insubstantial reasoning for large increases in rents. One anonymous JCR President is convinced that “collaboration between bursars has occurred”, adding that “it is a strange coincidence that all colleges seem to be making large adjustments at the same time.” He further questioned whether market shocks could be responsible for “excessively affecting such a range of colleges with varying endowment interests”. In response to greater charges for accommodation and food at Lady Margaret Hall, JCR President Euan Fitzpatrick claims to be “pissed off that junior members of the college have been left out of discussions.” He too believes that “ten or twelve colleges have got together to agree on large rent rises and are now playing off each other for justification.” Students at LMH are equally incensed by the college’s lack of consultation and are considering policies of non-participation and possible rent strikes if their voices remain unheard. Susan Marshall, Chair of the Domestic Bursars’ Committee, denies that any official command increase rents had been issued, saying that discussion has been limited to discussions between individual bursars “in general terms.” However this conflicts with reports from insiders on the Bursars’ Committee, who assert that they received overall recommendations to charge more for accommodation. The Hon Michael Beloff ’s attribution of Trinity’s increases to “the war in Iraq, concerns about terrorism and now SARS” has furthered fuelled student indignation. St Catherine’s undergraduate Laurence Parker Bowen claims the “real reasons are straightforward – to secure long term economic survival,” and accuses the University of “quietly abandoning its economic principles in favour of the chequebook.” This week, Roberto Montanari, JCR President of Somerville, hit out against his College’s “unsubstantiated and seemingly arbitrary” decision to raise room costs by ten percent. Although Professor Roger Van Noorden of Hertford calculates a general guideline for acceptable college rent rises each year, Somerville Governing Body is purported to have called his indications of 4.52% “outdated and irrelevant.” Balliol JCR has admitted that it too is “in trouble with rents” after students reacted angrily to the fact that they are facing large increases based on the performance of endowments and world markets. Although current students will not be substantially affected, new students from 2004 must expect extra costs of 27 to percent. Other colleges announced rents rises at JCR meetings on Sunday and many others are still in the middle difficult negotiations with apparently intransigent governing bodies.ARCHIVE: 3rd Week TT 2003last_img read more

Northern Foods sees steady progress in bakery

first_imgNorthern Foods has achieved “further progress” in bakery according to its interim management statement for the first quarter.Underlying revenue in its Bakery division rose by 6.8% for the 13 weeks to 27 June 2009. The firm said brand investment in Fox’s Biscuits, with its ‘Vinnie’ TV campaign and activities on Facebook and Twitter, has led to increased purchases of the brand.Revenue in its Chilled division increased by 9.2%, with the recent warm weather resulting in increased demand for sandwiches and salads.The company’s Frozen division saw a drop in underlying revenue of 1.5% compared to the comparable period last year. The firm noted the closure of its original pizza manufacturing site at Poldys in Ireland last year as the reason behind the loss. However, it said frozen pies continued to perform well.Overall group underlying revenue was up 5.5% on Q1 last year.“Our focus upon high-quality products, to serve a range of tastes and budgets, positions us well to continue our progress. We have much more to do and have a range of initiatives to drive the business forward,” commented Stefan Barden, chief executive of Northern Foods.last_img read more

The True Converged Infrastructure

first_imgVCE was created with one purpose:  to change how IT is performed. Our mandate was to break down the silos in the data center – reversing the status quo of static and inflexible pools of resources.VCE set out to deliver a system that was truly integrated:  compute, network, storage, virtualization, all tightly integrated and acting as one. The result was VCE’s Vblock System.  It was the first, and still is, the most advanced converged infrastructure offering in the industry.When we first delivered the Vblock System to the market, we believed that it was a transformative way of providing – and consuming – information technology.  The results outlined in the IDC whitepaper released today certainly bear this out – with customers seeing 4X faster deployment, reductions in downtime by 96%, and at half the cost of traditional infrastructure datacenter operations, the value VCE has been able to deliver is tremendous.However, the transformational benefits delivered by Vblock Systems would not be possible without the principles that guide how VCE provides an exceptional “true converged infrastructure” experience to our customers.A true converged infrastructure must be engineered, manufactured, managed, supported, and sustained as a single entity – one product, one unit.VCE believes a “true converged infrastructure” is vastly different than the experience provided by reference architectures or blueprints.Let’s go through this in more detail:Engineered as One Product: A truly converged infrastructure has a tightly integrated system that produces a seamless lifecycle experience for the customer.In other words, the system must be developed as a single product – albeit with multiple components – with integrated roadmaps and a unique development process that includes pre-testing, pre-integrating, and pre-validating the system as a single object.Not only is VCE’s development team drawn from “the best of the best,” it’s also made up of people who understand datacenters and complex infrastructures.  Because of this, VCE can create simplified, customer-focused solutions that deeply integrate the best technology the market offers.Manufactured as One Product: Since true converged infrastructures are engineered as a single system, they must be manufactured as a single system. Converged infrastructures are not “assembled” or “racked and stacked” in a warehouse or customer facility, but completely built in a factory.VCE has developed a diligent and disciplined manufacturing process that is capable of building an entire Vblock System – both physical AND logical aspects – in less than 45 days.  What’s more, the quality of that manufacturing effort produces an application-ready infrastructure that can support production environments less than 48 hours after delivery.Managed as One Product: After a customer deploys a true converged infrastructure, it must be managed as a single system. The system’s software must be engineered to provide comprehensive awareness of all resources, correlating events and eliminating the need for traditional, manually intensive resource integration.VCE Vision™ Intelligent Operations software does this, enabling a Vblock System to be seen and managed as a single converged infrastructure object – intelligently and dynamically informing customer management frameworks about Vblock Systems and creating a “converged operations” experience.Supported as One Product: Customers should only have one point of contact for support and services.  As a truly converged system, customers should not be routed to individual component specialists who only know one part of the system, rather than understanding the entire infrastructure as a single unit.True converged infrastructures must provide end-to-end support for all the components.  At VCE, we’ve made this a priority, and are proud to say that the vast majority of our support calls are handled by VCE support and completed without escalation.Sustained as One Product:  Converged infrastructure vendors should free customers of the burden of piecing together complex patches and managing updates from multiple vendors. Instead, a true converged infrastructure should provide these updates to the customer with step-by-step instructions, configurations, and guidelines throughout the product lifecycle, including upgrades, patches, and change management.VCE not only provides these capabilities through our Lifecycle System Assurance process and our Release Compatibility Matrix (RCM), with our new announcements we dramatically simplify how system updates are applied to ensure interoperability and eliminate most sources of data center outages.Today, VCE announced some truly innovative approaches to computing, with new Vblock Systems, New Vblock Specialized Systems, and new VCE Vision software.  However, it’s important to remember that the technology uniquely incorporated into Vblock Systems is only part of what makes VCE special.  There’s a lot that goes into delivering a true converged infrastructure experience – from engineering to manufacturing to support to management, and beyond.   That’s why it’s worth understanding what we at VCE are doing, how it is truly unique, and how only a true converged infrastructure can deliver truly transformational results for customers.last_img read more

I want to probate a will in federal court

first_img June 1, 2006 Regular News James W. Martin The U.S. Supreme Court gave me a great idea: probate a will in federal court. The primary advantage over state court is that federal courts have nationwide jurisdiction. But can I really file an action in U.S. District Court in Tampa to determine the beneficiaries and creditors entitled to the assets of a deceased New York resident? I used to think that federal courts would not hear probate cases, just as they would not hear divorces. But it turns out that neither Congress nor the Supreme Court ever said they could not, so they can. In fact, they must, if they should, to paraphrase the Court’s quotation of Chief Justice Marshall.All of this came to light when the Court decided to hear the Anna Nicole Smith case, the decision of which issued on May 1, 2006, under the unlikely title Marshall v. Marshall, 547 U.S. ____ (2006), because the infamous petitioner’s married name became Vickie Lynn Marshall when she married J. Howard Marshall II in 1994. Her husband was apparently quite wealthy and had a pre-existing family including a son named E. Pierce Marshall. When J. Howard died a year after the marriage, his will left his assets to a trust that named his son E. Pierce but not his wife Anna Nicole/Vickie.This created a setting for the usual probate contest, but Anna Nicole/Vickie added a twist by filing for bankruptcy in federal court in California while her husband’s will was being probated in state court in Texas. The decedent’s son E. Pierce twisted more by filing a claim in the bankruptcy alleging she defamed him when her lawyers told the press that he “had engaged in forgery, fraud, and overreaching to gain control of his father’s assets.” Anna Nicole/Vickie twisted further by counterclaiming against E. Pierce in the federal bankruptcy proceeding for tortious interference with the gift she expected from her husband, alleging such things as “effectively imprisoning J. Howard against his wishes, surrounding him with hired guards for the purpose of preventing personal contact between him and Vickie, making misrepresentations to J. Howard, and transferring property against J. Howard’s expressed wishes.”The federal bankruptcy court held a trial on her tortious interference claim and awarded her $449 million in compensatory damages and $25 million in punitive damages. E. Pierce then moved to dismiss for lack of jurisdiction on the basis that only the Texas state court had jurisdiction over a tortious interference claim. The bankruptcy court said it was not timely raised so it was waived. While this was going on in federal court, the Texas state court upheld the validity of the will and trust that did not name Anna Nicole/Vickie as a beneficiary.E. Pierce sought federal district court review of the very large judgment rendered against him in favor of Anna Nicole/Vickie by the bankruptcy court, and succeeded in reducing the amount of the judgment down to $44 million in compensatory damages and $44 million in punitive damages. That decision cost her about $400 million, but it got worse when E. Pierce appealed to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and successfully argued that the probate exception (the rule I always thought would keep me from probating wills in federal court) applied to bar federal jurisdiction entirely. She just lost the $88 million.The Ninth Circuit ruled that a claim falls within the probate exception, even if it does not involve administration of an estate, the probate of a will, or any other purely probate matter, if it “raises questions which would ordinarily be decided by a probate court in determining the validity of the decedent’s estate planning instrument, whether those questions involve fraud, undue influence, or tortious interference with the testator’s intent.” The Ninth Circuit also made this statement, which the U.S. Supreme Court found problematic: “Where a state has relegated jurisdiction over probate matters to a special court and the state’s trial courts of general jurisdiction do not have jurisdiction to hear probate matters, then federal courts also lack jurisdiction over probate matters.”The Supreme Court accepted jurisdiction to “resolve the apparent confusion among federal courts concerning the scope of the probate exception.” It held that “Texas may not reserve to its probate courts the exclusive right to adjudicate a transitory tort. . . of the federal courts, having existed from the beginning of the federal government, cannot be impaired by a subsequent state legislation creating courts of probate.” The Court held that the federal district court properly asserted jurisdiction over Anna Nicole/Vickie’s tortious interference claim against E. Pierce, reversing the Ninth Circuit: “We hold that the Ninth Circuit had no warrant from Congress, or from decisions of this Court, for its sweeping extension of the probate exception.”The Court held that “the probate exception reserves to state probate courts the probate or annulment of a will and the administration of a decedent’s estate; it also precludes federal courts from endeavoring to dispose of property that is in the custody of a state probate court.” But this appears to be the limit because the Court said that the probate exception “does not bar federal courts from adjudicating matters outside those confines and otherwise within federal jurisdiction.” A concurring opinion took this a step further and said there is no such thing as a probate exception to oust a federal court of jurisdiction and that the concept should be given a decent burial.The opinion is interesting reading for probate lawyers. I highly recommend it. It portends a future where we can probate a will in federal court. Its reference to the probate exception as “stemming in large measure from misty understandings of English legal history” reminds me of Bates v. State Bar of Arizona, 433 U.S. 350 (1977), which opened the floodgates of lawyer advertising with its comment on the then long-standing ban on same:“It appears that the ban on advertising originated as a rule of etiquette, and not as a rule of ethics. Early lawyers in Great Britain viewed the law as a form of public service, rather than as a means of earning a living, and they looked down on ‘trade’ as unseemly. Eventually, the attitude toward advertising fostered by this view evolved into an aspect of the ethics of the profession. But habit and tradition are not, in themselves, an adequate answer to a constitutional challenge. In this day, we do not belittle the person who earns his living by the strength of his arm or the force of his mind. Since the belief that lawyers are somehow ’above’ trade has become an anachronism, the historical foundation for the advertising restraint has crumbled.“[T]he assertion that advertising will diminish the attorney’s reputation in the community is open to question. Bankers and engineers advertise, and yet these professions are not regarded as undignified. In fact, it has been suggested that the failure of lawyers to advertise creates public disillusionment with the profession. The absence of advertising may be seen to reflect the profession’s failure to reach out and serve the community: studies reveal that many persons do not obtain counsel, even when they perceive a need, because of the feared price of services or because of an inability to locate a competent attorney. Indeed, cynicism with regard to the profession may be created by the fact that it long has publicly eschewed advertising, while condoning the actions of the attorney who structures his social or civic associations so as to provide contacts with potential clients.” James W Martin is a probate, real estate, and corporate lawyer in St. Petersburg, who has written for The Florida Bar Journal and News , A LI-ABA Practical Lawyer , and West Publishing.

The need for speed and consumer expectations for payments

first_imgConsumers expect most aspects of their daily lives to move forward at the push of a button or the swipe of a finger. The Eighth Annual Fiserv Billing Household Survey from Fiserv finds consumers’ expectations for anytime, anywhere access and speed includes their billing and bill payment options.Here’s what billers need to know to navigate consumers’ changing expectations:Consumers don’t take the issue of payment processing timing lightly. Gone are the days of timing transactions in business days. Today’s consumers expect their bill payment transactions to be finalized in a matter of minutes, if not sooner. In fact, nearly a quarter of people expect instant credit for bill payments – a figure that rises to 70 percent when including those who expect same-day credit. A full 90 percent expect credit no later than the following day. Real-time – or at least same-day – bill payment processing is more important than ever before. Billers need to understand that industry initiatives for faster bill payments are already underway, and same-day bill payment credit availability will soon be the norm. continue reading » 6SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Challenges remain for PPF despite funding improvements

first_imgThe UK’s lifeboat for bankrupt company pension schemes faces challenges ahead, despite improvements in funding levels over the past year, the institution has said.Following the publication of its annual Purple Book yesterday, the Pension Protection Fund (PPF) said the aggregate funding level across more than 5,000 had reached 95.7% in March 2018, up from 90.5% the previous year.Andy McKinnon, chief financial officer at the PPF, said “almost exactly half” of the improvements had been driven by market movements, including improvements in gilt yields that had pulled down liabilities, but also surging stock markets that had lifted investment portfolios.Improvements to the data gathered from schemes also helped define how funding levels have increased, said McKinnon. This data included employer cash injections and asset allocation changes. Andy McKinnon, chief financial officer, PPFHowever, he warned that there were still 3,188 schemes in deficit – equivalent to more than half in the UK – the impact of which was “close to £115bn” (€129bn).“We have seen some improvement in scheme funding,” said McKinnon, “but it is still the case that there is a lot of risk remaining in the universe.”Asset allocationThe Purple Book showed that, despite a significant proportion of schemes being underfunded, investment portfolios had been increasingly dialling back risk.The percentage of equities held in portfolios was just 27%, down from 29% a year earlier, with UK stocks falling out of favour. Within equity portfolios, UK schemes held just 19% in domestic equities, down from just under 50% in 2008, with around 70% held in global securities. Privately listed equities made up around 11% of this asset class.Just 5% of UK pension investment portfolios were held in domestic equities in 2018, down from more than a quarter a decade ago.Meanwhile, over the past year, schemes increased their allocations index-linked bonds – 44.5% to 47.1% – and turned away from regular corporate debt markets – 31.4% to 28.8%. Overall fixed income holdings made up just under 60% of aggregate portfolios.McKinnon said pension schemes held on aggregate a 7% allocation to hedge funds in their portfolios this year, compared to a 1% holding across the universe in 2006.Over the 12 months to the end of June 2018, the PPF said there had been £22bn worth of risk-transfer deals, including longevity swaps, buyouts and buy-ins, up from £16bn the previous year, “but nevertheless a relatively small amount in the context of the whole universe of schemes”.At the end of March , the PPF managed £30bn and had more than 236,000 members. It was 112.8% funded at that point. McKinnon added that the PPF had made changes to liability assumptions in the summer, which had also improved funding levels.last_img read more

WindEurope: Floating Offshore Wind Ripe for Industrial Scale Roll-Out

first_imgFloating offshore wind is no longer consigned to the laboratory: it’s a viable technology ready to be rolled out on an industrial scale, according to the latest report from WindEurope released at the Offshore Wind Energy 2017 event in London.Not only has the technology for floating offshore wind reached maturity, costs are also predicted to plummet in the coming years. One of the key advantages of floating offshore wind is that turbines are located further away from shores in areas with higher average wind speeds without depth constraints.Turbines can be significantly larger on floating installations and construction, installation, operation and maintenance costs could be lower than on fixed sites. Capacity can thus be improved leading to an increased generation of electricity, allowing for cost reductions of 10% by 2020 and 25% by 2030, WindEurope said.Ivan Pineda, WindEurope Director for Public Affairs, said: “Floating offshore wind is no longer an R&D exercise. The technology has developed rapidly in recent years and it is now ready to be fully commercialised at utility scale projects. Adding this option to the market means more offshore wind in total and it’s this extra capacity that we will need to meet the 2030 goals.”Floating offshore wind offers a vast potential for growth. 80% of all the offshore wind resource is located in waters 60m and deeper in European seas, where traditional bottom-fixed offshore is less attractive. At 4,000 GW, it is significantly more than the resource potential of the U.S. and Japan combined.Tapping into this inexhaustible resource will be key to expanding the overall capacity of offshore wind and support the EU in reaching the target of 27% of energy by renewables by 2030.As highlighted in WindEurope’s latest report, Unleashing Europe’s offshore wind potential, offshore as a whole could in theory generate between 2,600 TWh and 6,000 TWh per year at a competitive cost – EUR 65/MWh or below, representing 80%-180% of the EU’s total electricity demand.last_img read more
