Housing tops election wish list for tenants

first_img Show Comments ▼ Housing tops election wish list for tenants HOUSING is as much as an election concern as the NHS for tenants, new survey data shows.Housing was placed at the top of the agenda by 16 per cent of tenants. This is equivalent to the 16 per cent who cited healthcare, according to figures released today by property services firm LSL. However, healthcare was higher in importance than housing for first-time buyers.

Watch: The state of biotech at time of innovation — and high prices

first_img CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — We live in an age of miracles, but they come at a high cost, with new gene therapies costing millions of dollars each. Can we afford them? STAT senior writer Adam Feuerstein sat down with three industry CEOs to discuss this and other questions during a session called ‘The State of Biotech” at the inaugural STAT summit in Cambridge this week.Dr. Athena Countouriotis, the president and chief executive officer of Turning Point Therapeutics, spoke about the price Roche set for a lung cancer drug, Rozlytrek. The drug currently costs about $17,050 per month; an earlier drug cost $15,000, while one competing drug, Vitrakvi, costs about twice as much.“Many people thought, well, if it’s really innovative and very different, they could definitely [put a] premium price on that. So I give Roche a little bit of credit,” she said.advertisement Tags biotechnologySTAT+ About the Author Reprints STAT SummitWatch: The state of biotech at time of innovation — and high prices Jeff Jonas, CEO of Sage Therapeutics, was also emphatic that strict drug pricing policies could make the broader biopharma industry will suffer — and that drafting regulations based on “bad actors who we haven’t called out” could be an overreaction.Watch the full discussion below.advertisement STAT Summit: The State Of BiotechVolume 90%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard ShortcutsEnabledDisabledPlay/PauseSPACEIncrease Volume↑Decrease Volume↓Seek Forward→Seek Backward←Captions On/OffcFullscreen/Exit FullscreenfMute/UnmutemSeek %0-9 facebook twitter Email Linkhttps://www.statnews.com/2019/11/22/watch-the-state-of-biotech-at-time-of-innovation-and-high-prices/?jwsource=clCopied EmbedCopiedLive00:0032:0332:03  New gene therapies cost millions of dollars each.

Women encouraged to take up shipbuilding careers

first_imgWomen encouraged to take up shipbuilding careers Department of DefenceThe Morrison Government is encouraging more women to take up rewarding careers in the shipbuilding sector.Minister for Defence Industry Melissa Price said the theme for today’s International Women’s Day – “Women in Leadership” – emphasised the extraordinary opportunities available to women as Australia grows its naval shipbuilding workforce.Minister Price said International Women’s Day was a time to celebrate the achievements of women and to challenge women to achieve even more.With the Government investing billions of dollars in naval shipbuilding over the coming decades, there were bound to be countless opportunities for women to take leadership roles in the sector.“The Morrison Government is committed to growing female participation in naval shipbuilding,” Minister Price said.“We are creating thousands of jobs through our naval shipbuilding program, providing a stable, flexible and rewarding career in the shipbuilding sector for decades to come.“The Government’s commitment to continuous naval shipbuilding will see the sector supporting about 15,000 jobs.“As I flagged in a new video today, I want to firmly dispel any views that defence industry is mainly for blokes. It’s not.“We have a generation of jobs coming up in our sector and the opportunities for women in defence industry are fantastic.“There are opportunities for industrious and inspiring women across many vocations in a growing number of organisations, and sectors, right across Australia.“For women who are driven to make, to create, to learn, and to lead, the Naval Shipbuilding College can be where it all starts.”The College is connecting skilled female candidates with shipbuilding firms and education and training providers to develop the future shipbuilding workforce.To mark this International Women’s Day, the College has been working with industry to share stories of the work that naval shipbuilding companies are doing to build gender diversity within their companies.“These companies are trailblazers, inspiring the next generation of women to pursue a career in naval shipbuilding,” Minister Price said.Celebrated annually on 8 March, International Women’s Day recognises the economic, political and social achievements of women, in addition to highlighting the continuing challenges to achieving gender equality. /Public Release.

truvi commerce Now Allows Buyers to Select FedEx Retail Locations at…

first_imgHome Industry News Releases truvi commerce Now Allows Buyers to Select FedEx Retail Locations at Checkout…Industry News ReleasesWine Businesstruvi commerce Now Allows Buyers to Select FedEx Retail Locations at Checkout or at Wine Club SignupBy Press Release – January 23, 2019 82 0 Linkedin Pinterest ReddIt Twitter Share Facebook AdvertisementClients can offer a selection of FedEx “Hold-at-Locations” to their customers to avoid the inconvenience of their having to being home to sign for package delivery.NAPA, CA — JANUARY 23, 2019 — truvi commerce, which provides a full suite of products to enable wineries and wine retailers to launch and grow their DTC programs, announced today that its platform now allows for the selection of FedEx Hold-at-Locations at checkout and wine club sign up.Consumer expectations have shifted with respect to delivery. Aside from the cost of shipping, speed and convenience have become vitally important. According to a recent survey commissioned by FedEx, 50% of consumers surveyed have abandoned an online shopping cart because they didn’t like the delivery choices. Delivery has always been a sticking point for the wine industry, because wine requires an adult signature and that requirement interferes with the convenience factor. Many wineries suggest shipping to a place of employment; however, that option is not always practical. Failed delivery attempts are an all too familiar issue for the industry with estimates of failed first attempts ranging anywhere from 15 to 20%.To combat this issue, truvi worked with FedEx to give wine buyers a more convenient option for delivery. When shopping online, customers are prompted with a message reminding them that a signature is required and suggesting that if they are unable to be home, they can select a convenient FedEx location for delivery. This option is available for club members as well. truvi’s software presents three options for the customer to choose from, with a map for convenience. Once the order arrives at the chosen FedEx location, the customer receives a notification. Their order is held behind the counter and retrieved when the customer arrives and shows proper identification.FedEx has long allowed customers to redirect packages to FedEx stores through its FedEx Delivery Manager program, and many wineries take advantage of this feature today. However, that program requires buyers to wait until a package has shipped and then log in to redirect it. truvi’s solution, one of the first available for wineries to use at the point-of-purchase, eliminates that step and benefits truvi’s customers by allowing the consumer to select a FedEx location up front.There are many benefits for winery customers:They are able to minimize returns and redirect fees. Because of the adult signature requirement, return rates are estimated at between 2% and 3% for the wine industry.They can avoid costly residential surcharges. We estimate that approximately 70% of wine orders are shipped to a residence.Their customers are happier. Many customers will avoid shopping online if they are not happy with the delivery options.This new feature is available to customers who use truvi’s Shipment Manager module.In other recent developments, truvi announced an integration with Pack’n Ship, VINGO, and service delivery platform ProNimbus on January 18th.For more information visit:Blog Post: truvicommerce.com/blogWebsite: truvicommerce.comAbout truvi commercetruvi commerce is a cloud-based multi-channel technology platform that enables direct-to-consumer (DTC) sales for wineries and wine retailers.

Lowering Public Sector Costs will Eliminate Premium on Interest Rates – Shaw

first_imgRelatedLowering Public Sector Costs will Eliminate Premium on Interest Rates – Shaw RelatedLowering Public Sector Costs will Eliminate Premium on Interest Rates – Shaw Advertisements FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Minister of Finance and the Public Service, Hon. Audley Shaw says that progressive reduction in public sector demand will eliminate a significant portion of the current premium in the country’s interest rates that is related to macro economic uncertainty and government defaulting on its loans.“In short, the productive sectors of the economy will be able to finance working capital and longer term investment at more competitive interest rates,” he told a financial literacy forum hosted by the Financial Services Commission (FSC) at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel this morning (Aug. 18).The lowering of public sector costs is part of the Government’s overall fiscal programme to keep a tight reign on the economy, as it looks toward the International Monetary Fund (IMF) third quarter performance test at the end of September. An IMF team is now in the island conducting its review for the second quarter, which ended in June. “I am confident about a positive outcome for September as well,” the Finance Minister remarked.He said that the Government has also been sourcing multi-lateral funding at very low rates. “The World Bank loaned us US$200 million at 0.63 per cent interest rate.the IDB has loaned us US$430 million since the start of this year at interest rates of between 1.2 per cent, and 1.5 per cent,” he outlined.Underpinning the decline in interest rates on borrowings, Mr. Shaw said, is a low inflation regime that will target single digits. “In this regard, the annual rate of consumer price increases is expected to fall to the six to seven per cent range over the next four years – in fact we are pretty close to targeting seven per cent for this fiscal year,” he noted.Mr. Shaw said this low inflationary regime will facilitate longer term planning by the productive sector, and temper the rate at which labour and other input costs will rise, thereby enhancing the competitiveness of the productive sector.He pointed out that given the low rate environment that is being pursued, and following the successful completion of the Jamaica Debt Exchange (JDX), as well as the signing of the IMF standby agreement, the maintenance of low investment friendly inflation is a necessity, if financial planning is to bear any real fruit.“Low and stable inflation will engender more predictable returns on investment, and savings will be able to maintain their purchasing power, businesses will be able to plan with greater certainty, thus minimising wild fluctuation in consumer prices,” he stated.The FSC organised the forum in collaboration with the Caribbean Regional Technical Assistance Centre, with a view to engaging financial education stakeholders in dialogue, particularly in building consensus among public sector bodies, non-governmental organisations, learning institutions, financial service providers, and financial literacy practitioners.The Commission is spearheading the development of strategies towards implementing a National Financial Literacy Programme (NFLP) to empower Jamaicans with the financial knowledge necessary to create household budgets, initiate savings plans, properly manage debt, and make sound investment decisions.center_img Lowering Public Sector Costs will Eliminate Premium on Interest Rates – Shaw Finance & Public ServiceAugust 19, 2010 RelatedLowering Public Sector Costs will Eliminate Premium on Interest Rates – Shawlast_img read more
