Unions threaten mass cuts protests

first_img Tags: NULL whatsapp THE Trades Union Conference (TUC) issued a stark set of warnings about industrial unrest later this year after it said public spending cuts will hit the UK’s poorest 13 times harder than the richest. Unions will discuss during their three-day annual conference whether to launch a nationwide set of strikes. Labour candidate Ed Miliband has lashed out at such warnings, saying the unions need to act more responsibly.Meanwhile, it was claimed that the government doesn’t need to cut a single job in the public and civil services. The Public and Commercial Services union said that other measures, such as the scrapping of trident and a clampdown on tax avoidance, would help reduce the deficit.

AstraZeneca drug fails in key prostate cancer trial

first_img Show Comments ▼ Share KCS-content whatsapp ASTRAZENECA’S experimental prostate cancer pill Zibotentan failed to improve survival in a late-stage clinical trial, dealing a fresh blow to the company’s drug pipeline.As a result, AstraZeneca plans no regulatory submissions for zibotentan at this time and a spokesman said yesterday it was discussing the implications of the setback with investigators working on other studies involving the drug.The failure of zibotentan to improve overall survival in the late stage, or Phase III, study follows similarly unsuccessful trials for two other AstraZeneca pills, Recentin in colon cancer earlier this year and Vandetanib in lung cancer in 2009. Vandetanib has since gone on to show benefits in thyroid cancer, a smaller potential market. Zibotentan, a once-daily tablet, is being studied in more than 3,000 men with prostate cancer in a programme of clinical trials.

He said: “Conducting a value for money review of Trident was a key part of the Lib Dems joining this coalition government and, as we expected, the review identified significant savings.”Minister in the transport department Norman Baker also claimed the continuation of several high-profile rail projects was a key Lib Dem policy.Likewise, minister in the health department Paul Burstow said the government’s pledge to protect spending on social care by allocating an additional £2bn by 2014/15 was a success story among the cuts.

Stock markets in the US and UK jumped, taking equities back to the time when Lehman Brothers was just another big investment bank.One may argue that higher equity prices are justified, with corporate earnings beating forecasts – but the resurgence of the past few weeks has nothing to do with fundamentals and only a bit to do with the US mid-term elections. Its overwhelming driver was the Fed’s announcement (and prior to that, the expectation) that it would buy more government bonds. Yet America’s misguided QE2 policy will merely continue to fuel the bonds bubble, driving down yields to irrational levels and reversing the re-pricing of risk. Thursday’s 5.3 per cent decline in the Vix index, Wall Street’s fear gauge, was irrational. Several emerging market economies said the Fed’s move made any substantive deal on cutting global economic imbalances less likely at next week’s G20 meeting in Seoul. Developing countries also threatened fresh steps to curb capital inflows which are pushing up their currencies against the dollar. Brazil said it would use the G20 meeting as a forum to complain about the Fed’s decision. The Chinese were also predictably irate. In South Korea, the minister of finance and strategy said it would “aggressively” consider controls on capital flows; Turkey’s economy minister, where the central bank has been buying foreign exchange to curb appreciation of the lira against the dollar, said the Fed’s policy might backfire. Thailand raised the possibility of concerted action to combat the flood of investment dollars that are pouring into emerging markets. The Indians muttered veiled warnings. Even the Germans slammed the decision. The whole thing is turning into a disaster and whipping up protectionist sentiment. Why is nobody listening?In truth, some are: the CRB index of commodities hit its highest level in over two years, the greenback fell and the price of gold surged. All of these are typical inflation hedging signs. In a note last night, Charles Dumas of Lombard Street Research went as far as to predict that QE2 will actually cut US GDP by pushing up food and energy prices, reducing domestic demand.It is imperative that we start to wean ourselves from our addiction to cheap money. QE2 is creating another false market in government bonds just when we need to normalise finance and price risk properly. The Fed is the problem – not the solution.NO HAND OUTI have a lot of time for Guy Hands but his decision to sue Citigroup over its role in his takeover of music giant EMI was a bad error of judgment. Rather than trying to shift the blame, he should have taken responsibility for his disastrous decision. He borrowed billions to buy the firm at the height of the bubble, even though the entire industry is being undermined by technological change (though EMI isn’t doing too badly at the moment). It was always hard to know how a US jury would rule, especially in the current anti-finance climate – on the one hand, a dreaded Wall Street giant, on the other, an equally despised buy-out firm led by an Englishman. But yesterday’s decision against Hands was a breath of fresh air. He should stop grumbling and get on with trying to rescue his troubled [email protected] last_img read more

Misys said it received 13 new orders for BankFusion, which handles lending, deposits, and payment transactions as well as treasury and trade services, in the period. Other new solutions, such as trade finance systems for importers and exporters, accounted for 60 per cent of licence orders, up from 16 per cent the previous year. Banking division revenues are expected to dip slightly to £76-77m, down from £79.7m in 2009. But its treasury and capital markets arm saw forecast orders fall to £38-39m, from £40.9m, as orders were delayed. last_img read more

It said business was hit by the severe weather and “challenging trading conditions”.The figures, which covered the five weeks to 1 January, were dragged down by a 13.6 per cent sales slump at its HMV music stores in the UK and the Irish Republic.It said profits for the year to April would be at the bottom end of the £46m-60m range expected by markets.HMV said there was an underlying drop in demand for CDs and DVDs with downloads eating up a growing slice of the market.The demise of rivals Woolworths and Zavvi have left HMV as the last chain of its kind standing. Meanwhile, the company’s struggle with debt was laid bare in its statement. HMV said: “The board now expects that compliance with the April covenant test under the group’s bank facility will be tight and is taking further mitigating actions during the next four months to address this.”The company said it would save £10m this year as well as closing the 60 stores. Waterstone’s performed relatively well compared with the rest of the business, with steady like-for-like sales.

In Europe the difference was even more marked, with deals up 8.9 per cent in volume but down 21.2 per cent in value. US banks topped the review, charging $43bn between them and registering a 21.9 per cent increase on the previous year. Among the top fee payers were US government-backed banks, contributing a total of $2.52bn. State-backed mortgage lender Frannie Mae spent $884m on investment banking services last year, topping rankings compiled by data provider Dealogic.Government-sponsored home mortgage provider Freddie Mac placed second, paying $656m, and bailed-out insurer AIG placed third, paying $582m. whatsapp whatsapp Share Thursday 6 January 2011 8:54 pm Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Weak profits for Korea’s POSCO

first_img POSCO, the world’s number three steelmaker, posted a weaker-than-expected quarterly profit and warned it was struggling to pass on rising costs as floods in Australia disrupt raw material supplies. South Korea’s POSCO is already a laggard among Asian steelmakers in terms of price increases, share price performance and profitability, and higher costs will deal it another blow as it relies heavily on imports for raw materials like iron ore and coal. The company, which counts billionaire investor Warren Buffett and Japan’s Nippon Steel as major shareholders, said its contract prices of both iron ore and hard coking coal for the first quarter rose 8 per cent from the previous quarter. whatsapp More From Our Partners Russell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.org KCS-content Share by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal 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 AthletesBetterBeElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen HeraldAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCute Show Comments ▼center_img whatsapp Tags: NULL Thursday 13 January 2011 7:36 pm Weak profits for Korea’s POSCO last_img read more
