Libya is keen to expand its tourism market as the country attempts to rehabilitate its international reputation following the bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie in 1988, which killed all 243 passengers. However, relations have been strained over the last year following the release by the Scottish government of the only man ever convicted of the bombing, Abdelbaset al Megrahi, on compassionate grounds.Wolfgang Prock-Schauer, chief executive of BMI, said business customers would benefit from “even more choice between the UK and Libya” with domestic and long haul connections via Heathrow. Prices from London Heathrow to Tripoli start from £265 return. last_img read more

After last week’s midnight challenge, they were this time woken at 5.30am. Summoned to Heathrow, it was an elaborately cruel way to announce their new task: to create and pitch a new beach accessory.In the ever-inspiring confines of Terminal 5, the teams had a few problems coming up with ideas. “We haven’t solidified our product choice,” said Paloma, euphemising as only an Apprentice candidate can. After much squabbling (project manager Laura’s leadership style is best described as “incompetent supply teacher”) the girls unhappily settled on Joanna’s idea of a book stand. “It just makes reading that bit much more easier,” she explained. One wonders what books Joanna has been reading.The boys did slightly better, thanks to City banker Stella being catapulted into their team. As team leader she got to showcase many talents: negotiator, peacekeeper, babysitter. She even got to be a model as the boys gallantly volunteered her services to flog their product. Going shopping, they assured her they would choose something classy. “Do you have any bikinis with tassels?” they enquired.Their new invention was a hybrid of a cool box and beach towel: the cüüli. Why the umlauts? “It makes it trendy, it makes it cool” insisted Alex. Alex is currently unemployed.With prototypes produced, it was time to pitch to three retailers, including World Duty Free and Boots. The boys, rather dramatically, announced that the “age of the beach towel was over”. Not to be outdone, the girls baffled the experts with talk of “comfortability” and giving the customer “consumer happiness”.Alas, the customer will never get to experience this, as all three retailers declined to place orders for the Book Eeze, a first in the history of The Apprentice. At this point the bitching and bickering went nuclear, as accusations and recriminations bounced round the boardroom.Laura blamed Joanna for forcing through a bad idea, Joanna claimed Laura had scuppered their chances by denying Boots exclusivity while Lord Sugar’s new sidekick Karren Brady wondered whatever happened to sisterhood.Joining Laura and Joanna in the firing line was Joy. Rarely has someone been less appropriately named but her major crime seemed to be not shouting as loudly as the rest of them. It was enough for Lord Sugar though; he accused her of contributing nothing to the team and hailed her a black cab. Perhaps time for a relaxing beach holiday. last_img read more

EU proposes Europe-wide VAT

first_img The European Commission has published proposals for direct taxes across the European Union (EU), including a possible Europe-wide version of VAT. The proposals are part of a package of options being explored to find new ways of funding the EU budget. The UK, France and Germany have all rejected the idea of direct taxes in the EU. Currently all 27 member states pay a fixed amount to the EU budget, based on their GDP and a percentage of their VAT. The proposal was first mooted by the EU’s budget commissioner Janusz Lewandowski in August. whatsapp More From Our Partners Russell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.org980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comSidney Crosby, Alex Ovechkin are graying and frayingnypost.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.com Share Show Comments ▼ KCS-content center_img Tuesday 19 October 2010 8:39 pm EU proposes Europe-wide VAT whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableySerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan Times Tags: NULLlast_img read more

A SOBERING WARNING FOR OSBORNE AS CAM SWINGS INTO ACTION

first_img Share KCS-content Show Comments ▼ whatsapp CHAOS as the great and the good gathered for the annual CBI conference on Park Lane yesterday. The delayed start gave David Cameron a chance to prove he’s been reading those zeitgeist briefings: “Sorry for the delay,” he told the gathered business chiefs and hacks. “Like Ann Widdecombe, I had to be hitched by a wire over the audience to get to the stage.” A frightening thought for those who had tuned into the BBC’s lastest Strictly Come Dancing episode, which featured the portly ex-Tory MP being swung around on a high-wire (see picture). “Mind you,” the PM mused, “some people said that was worth half the license fee in one go.”Meanwhile, former PM of Canada Paul Martin had a sobering warning for chancellor George Osborne. Martin was keen not to sugar-coat the effect of a drastic cuts programme on his popularity. He recounted crossing the street carelessly one day and narrowly avoiding being hit. The driver’s face was overcome with relief – until, he recognised who he’d nearly hit and wound down the window: “If I’d known it was you, Martin, I’d never have stopped,” he yelled. The best days lie ahead, George.BUIK’S BOOKIESBack in their City offices, observers were already ruminating on a replacement for outgoing CBI director general Richard Lambert. BGC Partners’ David Buik was – of course – straight out the gate with a full list of candidates and odds. “What the UK needs is a captain of industry to selflessly give the country five years of his valuable time”, he wrote in the stirring introduction to his run-down of the hopefuls. So which captain will win you top dollar with Buik’s bookies? Ex-City minister Lord Myners offers longest odds at 20/1, but he’s dismissed with a kindly euphemism: “There is [ahem] insufficient largesse to capture his imagination”. A fond write-up for pensions guru Ros Altmann, in at 9/1, with a masterful backhander: “Ebullient extrovert who really knows her onions in the pension industry, but she may lack gravitas”. Ouch! And high praise indeed for ex-Tory MP David Heathcoat-Amory (12/1), whose major selling point is that he “does not eat peas off his knife”. But Buik forgets the first rule of running a bookies: impartiality. “[outgoing Tesco boss] Sir Terry [Leahy] would be my choice,” he writes. “But I fear hell has a better chance of freezing over.” Ever considered a career in headhunting, David? GREAT MINDSOutgoing M&S chief Sir Stuart Rose might have been among Buik’s top choices for captaincy of the CBI, but it seems he is otherwise engaged for now. Rose will be one of “the world’s greatest minds” auctioning off an hour of their time next week in the Krug Mind Share charity auction.He will be joined by leading lights to include BA honcho Willie Walsh, Lord Mandelson, Kevin Spacey and fashion-designer Anya Hindmarch.Last year’s bidding saw government waste-buster and retail tycoon Sir Philip Green raise £18,000 for his cause (tax free, of course), topped only by Simon Cowell, who brought in £19,000. But who would the minds on sale bid for? Fashionista Hindmarch’s answer might surprise: “Margaret Thatcher. I love her clarity and strength”. Bidding opens for guests during a private viewing of the goods at Sotheby’s next week. SHORTING SKIRTSIf you’ve been wondering how to relieve tension on the trading floor, look no further for advice than Pimco founder Bill Gross. In a recent interview in the Canadian Globe & Mail, the paper relates a surprising tactic: “Lately, Gross has been trying to loosen up a bit in the office, where he prefers to focus, in silence, for hours in front of his trading screens. To break the quiet he helps impose, the morning we meet he starts a new ritual: at 8 am, a song that someone recommends is blasted over the sound system. Gross kicks it off with Short Skirt/Long Jacket by the alt-rock band Cake. He even helps lead a conga line past rows of stunned-looking traders.” But whose tension does the conga line really relieve – the traders’ or Gross’?DEATH ON THE FLOORKeen readers of arcane academic theory on finance might have read Cardiff University don Paul Crosthwaite’s recent musings that the financial crisis was an object of “inchoate but urgent desire” for traders, equivalent to the native American ritual of potlatch. But he’s not the only contributor to a body of Freudian academic treasures on how trading is like wanting to die. Why not try Death-Driven Futures: You Can’t Spell Deconstruction Without Enron (eh?) by Alberta University professor Kathryn Ball, Jean-Francois Lyotard’s Libidinal Economies or the even racier Burgher, Burglars and Masturbators? Or, for the more scientifically inclined, there’s Endogenous Steroids and Financial Risk-Taking on a London Trading Floor, which provides a shocking insight: the more volatile a market is, the more stress hormone cortisol traders’ bodies produce.

Now NYSE in merger talks with Deutsche

first_img whatsapp Tags: NULL A SECOND giant stock exchange merger looked likely yesterday as Germany’s Deutsche Börse and multi-country platform NYSE Euronext confirmed they were in advanced talks.The merger would create the world’s largest equities exchange by revenues and profit and generate about €300m (£254m) in cost savings from economies of scale, they said yesterday. The announcement and suspension of their shares came just a day after news the London and Toronto Stock Exchanges will merge to create the world’s fourth-largest exchange trading $4.1 trillion (£2.5 trillion) of stock each year.A merged Deutsche Börse and NYSE Euronext entity would have a market capitalisation of about £15bn. “This transaction creates a group that is both a world leader in derivatives and risk management and the premier global venue for capital raising,” the exchanges said in a statement. The merger would be an all-stock transaction, with Deutsche Börse investors holding about 59-60 per cent of the combined entity and NYSE Euronext shareholders allocated 40-41 per cent. Deutsche Börse’s market cap was €11.4bn and NYSE Euronext’s €7.4bn yesterday. The exchanges discussed merging in 2008 and 2009 but have so far failed to reach agreement.

Italy had the lowest growth of the “major seven,” at 1.3 per cent. The figures show continued growth in the world economy despite some weather-related effects, according to Neil Prothero of the Economist Intelligence Unit. Yet this does not mask stubborn problems across the OECD, he warned.“The fiscal outlook in the US remains dire and employment prospects across the OECD are weak,” Prothero said.FAST FACTS | GDP ACROSS THE OECDJapan’s economy shrank by 0.3 per cent in the fourth quarter of 2010.In the US growth accelerated to 0.8 per cent.
