DataCash helps merchants accept online payments and provides them with fraud-prevention services.MasterCard’s new chief executive, Ajay Banga, is trying to boost the company’s profits by developing its online and mobile payments processing business. The company is looking for faster growth in non-US markets, where many consumers still use cash instead of plastic or online payments.Banga is also trying to catch up to arch-rival Visa, the world’s largest credit and debit card processing network. In April, Visa signed a $2bn (£1.3bn) deal to buy the payment processor CyberSource Corp.Both Visa and MasterCard are trying to stay abreast of competition with eBay’s PayPal, which many consumers think of first when they buy something online, analysts said.MasterCard expects the deal to reduce its fourth-quarter earnings by about five cents per share, break even in 2011, and add to earnings in 2012.DataCash posted adjusted pre-tax profit of £16.6m on turnover of £36.9m in 2009.The acquisition is expected to close by the end of October.MasterCard shares closed at $212.86 on Wednesday on the New York Stock Exchange.ASHLEY HEADDATACASHDATACASH executive chairman Ashley Head, who has over 30 years experience in the payments and banking industry, stands to make a staggering £144m from the sale of the firm. He yesterday said of the deal: “The proposed acquisition represents a significant opportunity for DataCash to drive increased adoption of our platforms and programmes internationally and become part of the exciting value proposition of MasterCard.”This is not the first time Head has enjoyed a bumper pay-day. In 2007 he sold 1.2m shares in the company at 2.40p each, netting around £2.88m.He has been bullish about the health of DataCash. In March he said: “The board anticipates further growth in revenue, profits and dividends in 2010.”Head was involved in setting up ProcCyber, a bespoke payments and risk solutions firm acquired by DataCash in June 2006. He currently owns a 43.3 per cent stake in DataCash.Head, who has a hands-on management role at the firm, has worked for MasterCard as senior vice president for Africa.He has also had a stint as director of technology and electronic banking for The National Commercial Bank in Saudi Arabia.

His supporters point to the steady rise in the firm’s share price from 124p when he took the reins in 2005 to 357p before his departure.However, critics argue Henriksson, known as a turnaround specialist, was a poor fit for the firm.

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS It is hard to truly predict how the Exiles will go next season. A fair few of the squad who bounced back to the Premiership at the first time of asking have gone, being released while no fewer than 21 signings coming in, chief amongst them Olly Barkley, Dean Schofield and Tim Molenaar. The coaching ethos will no doubt be the same as last season with Justin Burnell and Ollie Smith assured of their style. But does the shipping in and out of personnel maintain moment or even retain some of the fire to prove people wrong? We shall see on the opening fixture for the side, against Exeter Chiefs on Sunday 7 September.Big changes: Welsh’s senior figures have made a lot of changes to the sideWhat we do know is that the club are trying to keep a hold of some of the expertise from their last bout in the Premiership – Sonny Parker stepping off the training paddock and becoming a team ‘manager’ says as much – and Barkley, Molenaar and particularly Schofield are players who know how to tough out a season at the top. Weepu has that sprinkling of magic and, more excitingly for the neutral, a swagger and a smile.Many expect Welsh to go down swinging, but such talk has already reddened the cheeks of Burnell and his senior players. The incoming World Cup winner won’t be traveling halfway around the globe just to get spanked either. Taking time to chill: Piri Weepu will have his work cut out for him soon enough with London Welsh In many ways, the Premiership will be a better place for a red-breasted All Black slugging it out for respect, and grinning between bouts. If it looks like a crazy situation, all we will say is get ready to be evangelical.Read all about London Welsh’s desires to make more of an impact in the Premiership this time around in the August edition of Rugby World –  in shops now. You can find out where to buy your copy here. Download the digital edition here. As a team rising again, hoping to have a better time of it than their last Aviva Premiership adventure in 2012/13, London Welsh could do with converting as many fans into believers as possible.So with the bold signing of Piri Weepu, the club’s calculated risk should ensure that if anything else, they will be attracting neutral fans thanks to the presence of a cult hero.All Blacks have come and gone in the Premiership with varying success. For every Nick Evans and Dan Braid there is the big player sitting on the seesaw of form like Luke McAllister or those who never really won anyone over other than the thick-and-thin supporters, like Stephen Donald or Jimmy Cowan.What Weepu has that those others don’t, though, is that curious mix of passion that probably saw him flipping out after losing an egg and spoon race circa 1992, and mishief which sees him pull faces or joke around on the touchline. He looks a little husky for a scrum-half and his Wikipedia entry sports a picture of him beaming out from under a policeman’s hat, but he is also the one-man maelstrom spinning out of the centre of the haka and the same competitor that has enough alround skill to flick a cat-flap offload, kick from the touchline or take contact where few other half-backs would dare.A passionate man: Weepu will not travel around the globe just to get spankedOh yeah, and if you want an underdog element to the fun-loving World Cup winner, he has also had a stroke. The 30 year old had a ‘minor’ episode in March, but it only briefly stopped him from competing. Now he is headed for the Premiership.In short, up or down, battling every game or defying expectation, Weepu will be at the centre of everything well-publicised at London Welsh.last_img read more

Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest [Church of England] The House of Bishops on Sept. 12 by an overwhelming majority settled the text of the legislation to enable women to become bishops in the Church of England.The House of Bishops made clear its desire for the draft legislation to be passed into law when it goes forward for final approval to the Church of England’s General Synod in November.Speaking on behalf of the House at the conclusion of their meeting the Archbishop of Canterbury Dr. Rowan Williams said:“Before turning to the matters we have been discussing, I want to say, on behalf of the Bishops, that our thoughts and prayers are very much with the people of Liverpool and all affected by the Hillsborough tragedy on this day when the report is released. The Bishop of Liverpool has done a great service in steering this work to a conclusion and helping us as a nation to confront this deeply traumatic memory.”Dr. Williams continued:“Since women were first made priests in the Church of England in 1994, their ministry has hugely enriched both church and society. It has become increasingly clear to most of us that barring women from becoming bishops is an anomaly that should be removed, for the good of the Church’s mission and service.“In July this year, the General Synod asked the House of Bishops to reconsider an alteration it had made to the proposed legislation on this subject. The Bishops have taken very seriously the anxieties expressed about the possible implications of their amendment and there has been widespread consultation since then. We are very grateful for all the points and suggestions offered by synod members and others.“In light of this consultation, the Bishops have discussed the measure again and are now bringing forward a new text that expresses both our conviction of the need to see this legislation passed and our desire to honour the conscience and contribution of those in the Church of England whose reservations remain.“It is particularly significant and welcome that the new text emerged not from the House of Bishops itself but rather from a serving woman priest.“I hope all members of Synod will now reflect carefully on what the Bishops have decided and will continue to give thought and prayer to how they will vote in November.”“I am convinced that the time has come for the Church of England to be blessed by the ministry of women as bishops and it is my deep hope that the legislation will pass in November.”At its meeting in July the General Synod asked the House of Bishops to reconsider a provision in the legislation – Clause 5(1)(c) of the draft measure.The new amendment submitted by the Rev. Janet Appleby during the consultation process received overwhelming support from the House of Bishops in both their discussions and in the final vote.In discussion the Bishops welcomed the simplicity of the new text, its emphasis on respect and the process of dialogue with parishes that it will promote.The final text proposed by the House of Bishops is:Substitute for the words in clause 5(1)(c):” the selection of male bishops and male priests in a manner which respects the grounds on which parochial church councils issue Letters of Request under section 3″The House also agreed to establish a group to develop the illustrative draft Code of Practice published in January to give effect to the new provision.ENDSNotes for editors –The full vote on the legislation takes place at the meeting of the General Synod of the Church of England which meets in London from 19 – 21 November. For the legislation to pass it will require a two thirds majority in each of the Houses of Bishops, Clergy and Laity.A podcast from the Archbishop of Canterbury on this issue will be available from www.archbishopofcanterbury.org New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Cathedral Dean Boise, ID September 24, 2012 at 12:37 pm Bravo for the fact of women Bishops at al! Please remember that women in other parts who struggle to become priests if at all, and are longing for the enrichment to the church that the progression of women priests to bishops surely brings, are looking to the methodologies and graciousness of the process in the Church of England, and know that we also pray that all shall be very well, so that we also may have a model to follow one day.

Nearly 27,000 fans turned out to support the Trust at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium where the Liverpool team beat the Republic’s side XI 2-1.Mr Cox suffered life-changing brain injuries in April 2018 in an attack by Roma fans outside Anfield ahead of Liverpool’s Champions League semi-final.Liverpool FC’s chief executive Peter Moore, Director of the LFC Foundation, Matt Parish and Joe Blott, Chair of the Spirit of Shankly, recently presented a special cheque to Martina Cox, his wife, and Stephen Felle, chairman of the trust. The club and first-team players have also supported the appeal privately.“While the doctors are pleased with his progress, it is slow and Seán himself is frustrated at not being able to properly speak or express himself or do the things he took for granted before the attack”, Mrs Cox said.The Trust is in place to collect and administer funds raised for Sean’s plight.  The Trust will be responsible for distributing monies to meet the costs of Sean’s ongoing and future care and rehabilitation, and costs borne by his family related to his rehabilitation.  In the event of Sean’s death the proceeds of the Trust will be transferred to his Estate.Seán begins the next stage in his rehabilitation later this summer when he will travel from Dublin to a specialist neurological centre in Yorkshire. It is anticipated that Sean’s rehabilitation will take a number of years.

With the rise of concerns about campus diversity in the form of demands, social media trends and public forums, TCU has responded with the appointment of an Inclusion Officer and continues to respond with a university committee that caters to diversity, equity and inclusion. Below is a chart of racial diversity at TCU over the past five years.TCU Racial DiversityCreate pie chartsChancellor Boschini said the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee consists of “campus stakeholder groups” and will assess bias, identify barriers and review university programs and structures. The committee is in the process of assembling TCU’s first university-wide diversity agenda. “What I hope in the long run is that this committee will bring more awareness to all sides of the campus,” Boschini said. “Having more diversity gives everybody a richer experience.” TCU has had a diversity committee for about five years but it was only this past fall that the Faculty Senate said they wanted more involvement with it. From there the administration reconstituted the committee with a faculty and staff chair and the committee now has sub-committees that focus on specific diversity issues. Boschini said students can expect a campus survey this fall to “assess bias, identify barriers and review university programs and structures.” He said students can also expect a bias response team, new programs such as an inclusiveness initiative certificate and expansion of existing diversity initiatives such as community scholars. A community scholars group photo taken in 2016. (courtesy: communityscholars.tcu.edu)Diversity, Equity and Inclusion committee member and history professor Max Krochmal sat down with TCU 360 to give his perspective on the importance of this committee. Krochmal is not the only faculty member to feel this way. Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee member and latino/a studies program director David Colon said TCU could be doing a better job at improving diversity as well. “Our community does not yet adequately include a diverse enough range of experiences and perspectives in management, teaching and the student body to make TCU as thorough and comprehensive a university as we want it to be,” he said. “Diverse experiences, perspectives, traditions, customs and worldviews amplify dialogue necessary for successful academic pursuits.”Chancellor Boschini has asked that the TCU community takes charge in the efforts to diversify campus by enrolling in classes, training and lectures led by various departments on diversity to “effect cultural change on campus.” For a response to questions and concerns, email [email protected] Provost recommends decentralized testing centers ReddIt Nia Brookinshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/nia-brookins/ Welcome TCU Class of 2025 TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Previous articleCelebrity Dish (Ep. 19 – Buble, Exposures and more)Next articleLove it or hate it, TCU Alert is meant to keep you safe Nia Brookins RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Nia Brookinshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/nia-brookins/ Facebooklast_img read more

New 2018 predictions from real estate brokerage Redfin anticipate high-tax states such as California, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Massachusetts and Illinois could take a serious hit if they lose the SALT tax deduction.In a Redfin survey, a third of respondents said they would consider relocating to a different state if deducting SALT was no longer an option. This would only exacerbate trends Redfin’s migration data is already seeing occur, with many people looking to relocate from expensive coastal cities to more affordable metros such as Sacramento, Phoenix, and Atlanta.But while many homebuyers might be looking to move to a different state if the SALT deductions vanish, they might have a hard time finding a new home once they get there. Both the House and Senate versions of the tax bill include changes to tax deductions for homesellers. Currently, single homeowners can deduct $250,000 of sale proceeds from capital gains taxes, so long as they’ve lived in their current home for two out of the five previous years. Couples can deduct up to $500,000 if they meet the same standard. However, the new proposal would increase that from five years to eight years. This could convince some sellers to hunker down and wait until they meet that qualification. With housing inventory already tight around the country, this could mean even fewer homes on the market.On a broader scale, Redfin also predicts that homes will sell even faster in 2018 than they have this past year. “The 2017 housing market was fast, with 25 percent of homes selling in two weeks or less during the peak of the buying season, and nearly 1 in five homes (19 percent) off-market in less than a week,” said Redfin. “We expect 2018 to be even faster.”Mortgage payments are also expected to increase in 2018. With the Federal Reserve shrinking its asset portfolio, Redfin expects mortgage payments to increase at the highest rate in a decade. “The combination of higher home prices (6+ percent) and higher interest rates means mortgage payments will be higher in 2018 for the same home,” said Redfin. According to Corelogic, monthly payments of principal and interest rose 13 percent in 2017 compared to a year prior. Redfin predicts they may climb as high as 15 to 20 percent in 2018.You can read all of Redfin’s 2018 Housing Market Predictions by clicking here.

first_img Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos. Read full article So as most already know, this year Linkedin changed their InMail policy. Instead of getting back all the InMails that didn’t get a response, Linkedin now only credit back InMails that are replied to. They also implemented their new policy around a commercial search limit in which in any given month you can only run a limited amount of searches as beyond a certain number they deem that it is being used for commercial purposes. I’ve seen a number of posts for and against the changes and for what it’s worth, I say bring it on!Here’s why…Sometimes, just sometimes, I shudder when I see some of the activities that are being passed off as “recruiting”. In the last month I have received a number of batch messages that not only are not personalised to me, but have zero relevance to me at all. E.g. I’m an IT/software development sourcing specialist/recruiter and therefore, I have a few technologies listed on my profile. In the greater context of my profile, this is clearly in reference to positions I regularly find myself recruiting and not related to my personal IT experience, YET – I still get messages asking about my interest levels in an exciting and fantabulous open position as a Developer. I’m all for looking at ways to find efficiencies but sending a batch message to anyone with a specific technology(ies) listed on their profile (due to a standard keyword search) is just plain lazy and is certainly not what the vast majority of the recruitment world would identify as effective, solid recruitment/sourcing practice. To date, given the limited InMails available per month on different subscriptions, recruiters were almost incentivised to not be engaging in their InMails and just throw buzzwords in the hope of either a) Quickly engaging a professional who might be actively on the market; or b) being completely ignored, as opposed to opening up conversations with candidates who are not “active” but may be open to discussing other opportunities. If by LinkedIn changing its policies it encourages the careful  and more considered use of InMails as a tool of value and as the medium that could be used to open doors to new networks/candidates/business partners/leads, then I’m all for it and can only see it having a positive effect on the industry.Link to info on new InMail policy: http://sales.linkedin.com/blog/linkedin-changes-inmail-policy-to-improve-quality-of-messages-and-response-rates/On commercial search limits. I believe that the impact on this will be minimal to any recruiter who considers themselves to be somewhat social media savvy as most will be well versed in other online sourcing techniques and know e.g. know how to run x-ray searches via search engines, should they reach their search threshold. The knock-on effect of this is that recruiter who is perhaps not quite as used to other online search methods will have to begin to increase their knowledge of online sourcing methods which surely can only positively affect the recruitment industry?.Link to info on new “commercial use limit”: https://help.linkedin.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/52950/~/commercial-use-limit-on-searchcenter_img LinkedIn policy changes – Good, Bad or Ugly?Shared from missc on 20 Jan 2015 in Personnel Today Comments are closed.last_img read more

first_imgA technique for moult staging Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba Dana) was used in the analysis of field samples to predict intermoult periods and hence assess growth and the effects of seasonal changes in food availability. The proportion of moulting krill was used, in conjunction with laboratory data on the duration of this phase, to predict the moulting frequency (intermoult period, IMP). The moulting frequency was then combined with appropriate daily growth increments from laboratory study to assess overall growth in the krill sampled. The effects of seasonal fluctuations in food availability on moulting frequency were examined for samples taken at five different locations and times of year. Moulting rate was not linearly related to the availability of phytoplankton, although it is likely that this factor has a marked effect. Similarly, although temperature affects IMP, the data indicate that this is not a simple relationship either. These preliminary data indicate the value of utilizing this technique in the analysis of field samples of Antarctic krill.last_img read more
