It still means UK companies will pay out 17 per cent less to investors than at the peak in 2008 and five per cent down on 2009.However, if BP had not been forced to cancel its dividend, the total amount returned to investors by UK companies would have risen four per cent. UK-listed companies paid out£17.6bn, up from £17.3bn in the third quarter last year.So far this year UK dividends have hit £46.1bn, down from £47.8bn for the first nine months of 2009.Capita Registrars chief executive Charles Cryer said: “Investors can finally breathe a sigh of relief after a long and painful period of shrinking dividends.“Seeing corporate UK in better health will give the Treasury some cheer ahead of the impending spending review that the economy can withstand the cuts. This year will stillend lower than last year, but with BP promising to turn on the dividend taps again next year, 2011 should see income growth accelerate.”According to the research the underlying position is strengthening. It found 200 companies paid a dividend in the third quarter – equal to last year. The number was reduced by firms who moved their third quarter payouts into the 2009/10 tax year to beat the new 50 per cent tax band. Show Comments ▼last_img read more

Brutal covering hit from New Zealand schoolboys rugby game

first_imgMonday Jun 17, 2013 Brutal covering hit from New Zealand schoolboys rugby game This brutal tackle comes from a recent New Zealand schools rugby game between Wanganui Collegiate and St. Pauls Collegiate. It’s been doing the rounds so if you haven’t seen it yet, get ready to squirm in your seat. St. Paul’s Kip Fawcett made a great run as he split the defence in two then offloaded for a try-scoring pass. Unfortuntely in the process Ruslan Casey lined him up and smashed him.It might be considered a late tackle but Casey seemed fully committed to it, with the hit producing a crunching (cracking?) sound that was heard around the ground, and brilliantly captured on camera.Fawcett, who created the try from first phase possession from a scrum, got up somehow although he did look a fair bit shaken, but that’s to be understood after one of the biggest hits of the season.Enjoy big hits and brutal tackles?

Some Rush County Crops Enjoying a Good Year

first_img By Andy Eubank – Oct 18, 2015 Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Some Rush County Crops Enjoying a Good Year Previous articleSunday OutlookNext articleOIL Prices Higher on Friday but a Loss for the Week Andy Eubank Facebook Twitter Some Rush County Crops Enjoying a Good Year Rush County updateAt the Indiana State Fair in August Mark Bacon of Milroy in Rush County said he had farm ground that seemed to be in a garden spot. The growing season was going great and his was a story not many Indiana farmers could share. Two months later it is harvest and that ground is providing very good results for Bacon.“Soybeans ran in the mid 60’s and we had a little that ran 70 bushels per acre, but we’re probably going to average above 60 bushels on soybeans across the board. Corn has been for the most part 170 to 220, and we had one field that went 232, so we’re really happy with that.”Those yields are a little above average. But like most farmers, just up the road there is a different story. Bacon spoke with HAT Friday in a field 14 miles from home in Shelby County.“It’s not going to be quite as good. I think I had some water damage up there. There was some heavy rain just after I got it planted and it’s not turning out quite as good. Looks like it will be in the 140-150 bushel range.”Bacon said he’s watched yield variances in those fields from 220 bushels all the way down to 120. And in that garden spot back in Rush County, Bacon had record wheat production.“I had a hundred bushel wheat. My brother had a little bit less, about 95 on what we ran prior to July 6th. After the 6th the rains started hitting and we were out of the field for two weeks and then the quality went down and the yield went down.”Bacon feels they would have continued getting the 100 bushel yields but the rain after July 6th put an end to that. Soybeans were wrapped up last week and he expects to finish corn harvest mid-week this week. SHARE SHARElast_img read more

New purge at China Youth Daily

Like the Zhongguo Qingnian Bao, Zhonghua Er Nu belongs to the Communist Party Youth League. Li Erliang was replaced by Chen Xiaochun, a journalist on the daily for 30 years. He had already replaced Li Datong at the head of the famous Bing Dian supplement.Likewise, Wang Hongyou who was both director and secretary general of the communist party cell within Zhongguo Qingnian Bao, lost his post as director to Xu Lixin.One journalist in Beijing said these replacements could be temporary. Loyal members of the Communist Party Youth League, traditional supporters of President Hu Jintao, could be appointed to exert greater control over this newspaper which sells by subscription to hundreds of thousands of people.In February 2006, Bing Dian a popular investigative weekly supplement to Zhongguo Qingnian Bao, had two of its leading staff removed, Li Datong and Lu Yaogang. The two journalists were sidelined by being sent to the daily’s centre for journalism research.

Three counties, Bullock, Macon and Pike, will be directly affected by the grant and representatives from each county were in attendance. Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Houston said parents who have a child that develops symptoms of a serious emotional disorder often find themselves in the dilemma of where to go for help. The ADMH grant will be used to fund the East Central Children’s Health Collaborative project (ECCHCO).“The goal of ECCHCO is to develop a collaborative, community-based system of care responsive to the mental health needs of children and youth with serious emotional disturbances and their families.”The grant will be administered in Pike, Bullock and Macon counties and will address the comprehensive needs of children and adolescents by creating a family-focused and youth-driven system of care that transcends traditional mental health boundaries by integrating social services, education and juvenile justice resources with mental health services for children in a community-based outreach setting. Don Schofield, ECMH director, said the grant will be administered over the next six years. The first year will be spent planning innovative and creative ways to provide a system of care that will best meet the needs of the chidren, youth and their families.“What is very unique about this grant is that we have a major university, Troy University, as a partner,” Schofield said. “We look forward to this partnership and its valuable input in the planning and carrying out of this project over the next six years.” Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Acid Reflux (Watch Now)Healthy LifestyleIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?
