When prompted to press 1 to speak to an operator, go ahead and give them a blast.Fred AmesMalta Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionFed up with getting annoying robo callsStop the annoying robo calls. I don’t need your student loan fixed. Social Security doesn’t contact you by phone. Credit cards don’t need fixing. I’m wondering how many politicians have stock in the companies that make plastic bags.I know they can be a pain, but I use the grocery store ones to line my wastepaper baskets. I have one in every room and one at the end of my countertop to collect stuff in. Without those bags, I’d have to buy some. So is that what they want? Do they want to force us poor people who make good use of the grocery bags to have to spend money to buy them?When I buy items that don’t really need a bag, I tell the cashiers not to put them in a bag. So the ones that I do get, I make very good use of.I know that the stores put the price of the bags onto the items in the store. So are they going to lower prices because now they don’t have to use bags? I seriously doubt it.It’s not healthy to use cloth bags, especially if you buy meat products. They always put them in a separate bag and I just cannot imagine having to put the groceries together because somebody decided that they can make money from their stock as they force us to buy bags now.With all the problems we have that need fixing, I cannot see why they are concentrating on such a small thing. I recycle and try to do my best to protect the environment. But I do believe this is going too far.Wanda E. HunterSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:Gov.

A heartbroken Schenectady couple called our nonprofit and said they’d been visiting beavers at the “Preserve” regularly for years.Imagine their shock at finding that family’s dam breached and ringed with six large conibear traps.These powerful traps often kill pet dogs and rare species, too.  Children have been hurt, and one set for beavers even broke a man’s leg.Where there is vacant habitat, beavers will return. Instead of trapping, using a leveler in a dam to manage the water level gives a lasting, win-win solution.Even if a professional installer is hired, the savings versus the short-term solution of killing is impressive. When the Virginia Department of Transportation had beaver devices installed, for each dollar spent, taxpayers saved $8.37. A U.S. Fish and Wildlife program, Partners for Wildlife, may provide free materials for a leveler.Beaver dams restore wetlands that almost half our rare species require. Dams both cleanse and help stabilize streams. That reduces the costly damage from floods and droughts that are worsening with climate change. More people are now partnering with beavers, especially in the West.There will be a free screening of the Beaver Believers documentary today (April 18) at 6:30 p.m. at the Little Falls Public Library.

first_imgPresident Joko “Jokowi” Widodo has reiterated his commitment to eliminating overlapping regulations and developing more industrial parks across Indonesia.“Regulatory reforms must be carried out. Regulations that are overlapping, complicated and misleading [for] those [who] are at risk must be put to an end,” Jokowi said in a televised state of the nation address at the People’s Consultative Assembly on Friday.Read also: What you need to know about Batang industrial zone development Red tape prevented Indonesia from climbing up the World Bank’s ease of doing business ranking last year, hence why the country has been ranked 73rd since 2018. The President wants the country reach the 40th position this year.To achieve the goal, the Jokowi administration has proposed an omnibus bill on job creation to carry out regulatory reform. It seeks to attract investment by revising 79 laws and more than 1,200 articles deemed harmful to Indonesia’s ease of doing business.In addition to regulatory reform, the government is also developing industrial parks, such as the Batang industrial park in Central Java and one in Majalengka regency, West Java, to solve land acquisition issues usually faced by investors.The government is planning to develop at least 27 industrial parks, according to the 2020-2024 National Medium-Term Development Plan (RPJMN). Most of them will be developed outside Java Island. “Similar industrial estates will also be built in various regions all over Indonesia, always taking into account cooperation with community entrepreneurship and micro, small and medium enterprises to provide employment opportunities for the unemployed young generation and boost equitability of development in all corners of the country,” said the President in his speech.“Consequently, a favorable national ecosystem for the expansion of quality employment opportunity must be established.Read also: Guide to omnibus bill on job creation: 1,028 pages in 10 minutes“We dedicate all of this to a fair national economy that caters to the interests of workers and job seekers in order to alleviate poverty by providing the widest possible quality employment opportunities.”The Indonesian economy contracted 5.32 percent in the second quarter as the COVID-19 pandemic hit demand and disrupted the supply chain. As a result, around 3.7 million individuals have lost their jobs so far this year, according to data from the National Development Planning Agency (Bappenas), with the number expected to hit around 10 million by the end of the year. The speech came at a time when the government is pushing forward the conclusion of deliberation of the omnibus bill at the House of Representatives amid heavy scrutiny from observers, international institutions and labor unions that say the bill could jeopardize environmental protection and labor rights.Topics :last_img read more

first_imgThe chair of the parliamentary committee charged with scrutinising pensions policy has argued that the benefits of increased tax income is a driving factor behind the UK government’s move to create flexibility in defined contribution (DC) pensions.Speaking at the industry conference, Pensions and Benefits UK, Labour MP Dame Anne Begg said she was sceptical whether the government had fully considered all its options before selecting its chosen route.In March, during the annual Budget, Chancellor George Osborne announced reforms to the DC market that remove compulsory annuitisation for pots sized between £18,000 and £310,000.The changes, announced by the Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition, will allow DC savers full flexibility, including withdrawing pots as cash charged at the marginal tax rate. It was seen as reaction to a failing annuities market, beset by falling annuity rates for consumers due to lack of awareness and competition.However, the changes set to be implemented by April 2015, have been criticised over the scale of the reforms, the reasoning behind them and the timescale.Begg, chair of the cross-party work and pensions select committee, told the conference: “I do wonder if [the government] fully exhausted all the options for improving the annuity market.”“Some of this was done because [the government] sees an immediate tax advantage, and it has more to do with that.”The increase in income is to be fuelled by savers withdrawing their pots as cash and paying associated tax charges.However, the notion of government income increasing as a result of the reforms was contradicted by other speakers.Con Keating, head of research at Brighton Rock, said while immediate advantaged would be seen, in the long-run it was not the case due to a fall in demand in Gilts from annuity providers.“What happens with Gilts will actually offset the tax advantage, and will add to the deficit.“Based on the work the Bank of England has done on the effect of pension scheme and annuity buying on the level of interest rates, three years on, expect a tax bill because of these changes rather than a benefit.”Begg also berated the government over the timescales of the reforms.“It does seem strange the announcement was made before the consultation was launched and it is yet to make the case that people can get a higher, or a more secure income, under a more flexible system,” she added.“It is an incredible challenge for the industry because of the way the DC system works,” she added. “It is going to be tight.”Concerns over the timescale for implementation were echoed by the National Association of Pension Funds, which, in its response to the government consultation, said scheme members were at risk due to the speed of change.“It is difficult to recall a time when UK workplace pensions have had more to deal with,” said Joanne Segars, chief executive from the NAPF.“Even with the best intentions, this can only jeopardise good outcomes for scheme members and schemes should be given time to put the changes from the Budget in place first. We recommend the Government reviews the timetable.”last_img read more

first_imgAlthough he conceded the £8.4bn mandate was sizeable – it accounted for approximately 28% of the manager’s £29.5bn in assets under management as of the end of September – he pointed out that it accounted for just 3% of the company’s annual revenue, and produced only a small profit.“It was marginally profitable, but only marginally,” he told IPE. “In terms of bottom line, it honestly doesn’t make a difference.”Nusseibeh said discussions were ongoing with two staff directly affected by BTPS’s decision to terminate the mandate, but he would not be drawn on any departures.Hermes has steadily increased the level of revenue from third-party clients, rising from 18% at the end of 2011 to 51% by September 2015, according to figures provided by the manager.According the company’s 2014 annual report filed with the UK’s Companies House, it saw income from management and performance-related fees increase by £2.8m to £32.8m over the course of the financial year – broadly on par with the £32.6m reported at the end of 2011.Over the nearly four-year period, Hermes has only seen assets under management increase by around £3bn.But its stewardship business, Hermes EOS, has seen assets under stewardship increase to £146bn, up from £86bn in 2011.BTPS remains loyal to Hermes in other areas, recently doubling the size of a private equity mandate overseen by Hermes GPE. Hermes Investment Management’s chief executive has blamed the changing investment landscape for the BT Pension Scheme’s (BTPS) decision to terminate a £8.4bn (€11.9bn) bond mandate.According to a statement released by BTPS, the UK’s second-largest fund decided to move away from the actively managed government bond strategy after concluding a passive approach would be more cost effective.The statement added that Hermes achieved a strong performance from the mandate, and that the manager wholly owned by BTPS would continue to oversee 30-40% of its assets – a reduction from half of the fund’s assets at the end of June 2014.Saker Nusseibeh, who has been chief executive of Hermes since 2012, said he “wasn’t particularly surprised” on hearing last week about the loss of the mandate, noting the trend among UK pension funds to focus on liability management.last_img read more
