Revealed: The 10 best London restaurants for mobile signal

first_img Share The most reliable networks were O2 and Vodafone but, when signal is poor, it appears restaurants will need to ensure their wifi is up to scratch, as almost a quarter of Londoners said they expect free wifi access as standard. If you’re hoping to stay on top of your emails at a work lunch, Bourne & Hollingsworth Buildings and Plate Restaurant, Bar & Bake are just a short hop from the City. James Warrington In fact, just under a fifth of people in the capital say their restaurant experience has been “ruined” by poor signal, according to new research from network benchmarking firm Global Wireless Solutions (GWS). whatsapp RankRestaurantPostcode1Brasserie ZedelW1F 7ED2Hawksmoor Seven DialsWC2H 9JG3Flat IronWC2E 8QH4The PalomarW1D 6DN5AquavitSW1Y 4QQ6Duck & WaffleEC2N 4AY7Rum KitchenW11 1HH8Darwin Brasserie at Sky GardenEC2M 8AF9Bocca di LupoW1D 7BB10Lina StoresW1D 7BB Thursday 8 August 2019 12:07 pm Read more: Restaurants eat into retailers’ high street share Worst 10 restaurants for mobile signal Brasserie Zedel in Soho and Hawksmoor Seven Dials were named and shamed as the worst offenders for poor signal, while high-rise City favourites Duck & Waffle and Darwin Brasserie Sky Garden were also surprise entrants in the bottom 10.

Tusk rejects PM’s backstop plea as EU27 memo slams ‘misleading’ claim

first_img Share She told journalists this morning: “The letter does not provide a legal operational solution to prevent the return of a hard border on the island of Ireland, it does not set out what any alternative arrangements could be, and in fact it recognises that there is no guarantee that such arrangements will be in place at the end of the transitional period.” However the memo says it will analyse any “operational United Kingdom ideas that are compatible with the existing Withdrawal Agreement”, adding the political declaration can be reworked “in line” with European Council guidelines. The European Commission’s deputy chief spokesperson Natasha Bertaud expanded on the reasons why Brussels could not accept Johnson’s new approach. A Downing Street spokesperson said: “We are deeply invested in the peace, prosperity and security of Northern Ireland and always will be, and we have been clear that we will never place infrastructure, checks or controls at the border. whatsapp However a six-point note, coordinated between the European Council and the Commission and seen by City A.M., makes it clear there will be no change in the EU27’s unified stance so far.

It also attacks Johnson’s argument that a “flexible” solution could be found because of the existing differences on the island that exist without a hard border. She insisted it was not “the time to enter into blame games”, stressing the Commission still favoured an “orderly” Brexit. “We stand ready to work constructively with the UK,” she said. “The EU regrets that the new United Kingdom government wants to replace a legally operative solution with a commitment to try to find a solution – yet to be found – by the end of the transition period,” the memo says.

Tuesday 20 August 2019 11:32 am “EU law provides the common framework needed to enable frictionless trade between Member States today. Without this common framework, checks and controls become necessary to protect consumers’ health, the integrity of the Single Market and Ireland’s place in it.” Tags: Brexit “We are ready to negotiate, in good faith, an alternative to the backstop, with provisions to ensure the Irish border issues are dealt with where they always should have been: in the negotiations on the future agreement between the UK and the EU.” whatsapp Main image: Getty Catherine Neilan “But it is clear that unless the Withdrawal Agreement is reopened and the backstop abolished, there is no prospect of a deal. It has already been rejected three times by MPs and it is simply unviable as a solution, as the PM’s letter makes clear.

With budget deal done, oil tax reform remains elusive

first_imgEnergy & Mining | State GovernmentWith budget deal done, oil tax reform remains elusiveJune 1, 2016 by Rachel Waldholz, APRN-Anchorage Share:House Minority Leader Chris Tuck, D-Anchorage, watches a floor session Tuesday May 31, 2016 in Juneau, Alaska. Members of the minority broke a stalemate on the stateÕs operating budget and joined the majority in a vote to draw from the state’s savings to solve budget issues. (Photo by Rashah McChesney/KTOO)For months, Democrats in the legislature were clear on one thing: they would not vote for a budget unless lawmakers made major cuts to state subsidies for oil companies.Then, Tuesday night, they did just that, voting for a budget without those cuts in place.But the budget passed by the legislature this week doesn’t include about $775 million owed to oil companies this year. And Democrats say, if companies want those credits, there has to be oil tax reform.Just a week ago, House Minority Leader Chris Tuck, D-Anchorage, was insisting that oil tax reform was the key to any budget deal.“It all depends on what we do on the oil tax credits,” he told APRN last Monday.Tuck said Democrats wouldn’t supply the votes to dip into the state’s piggy bank, the Constitutional Budget Reserve, unless there was a bill cutting future tax credits.Fast forward one week, and Wednesday morning found Tuck and House Democrats praising a budget deal — that didn’t include the oil tax reform they’d been holding out for.So what changed?Democrats said they got a good deal — a budget that reverses cuts to the University of Alaska, public schools, the Marine Highway System and more — and that waiting any longer put the state at risk of a government shutdown.And, they said, there’s still time for an oil tax deal. That’s because one thing the budget doesn’t include is money for oil tax credits.Lawmakers are touting a $4.4 billion dollar operating budget this year, compared with about $5.2 billion last year.That sounds like a big cut — until you realize that this year’s total doesn’t include oil tax credits. The state estimates it will owe about $775 million in cash payments to oil companies this year; the budget only allots $30 million.Instead, lawmakers included about half the amount owed, $430 million, in a separate section of the budget (which, through a combination of accounting maneuvers and the use of leftover funds from previous budgets, will show up as an expenditure in last year’s budget, not this year’s.) And that money can only be released if some version of the oil tax reform bill, House Bill 247, passes.Anchorage Democrat Les Gara hammered home that point during a press conference Wednesday morning.“We used as much leverage as we could to say, you don’t even get half of the money that we owe under this terrible system unless you pass that oil tax credit bill,” Gara said.Meanwhile, the bill itself is sitting in a conference committee, which must iron out the differences between the House and Senate.Cathy Giessel, of Anchorage, represents Senate Republicans in those negotiations.“I am very hopeful, actually optimistic, that we are going to arrive at a good compromise on House Bill 247,” Giessel said. “I won’t say that I have that equal confidence that it will pass both bodies.”She means she isn’t sure it can pass the House, where several Republicans joined Democrats to pass a more sweeping reform bill.Giessel says there is broad agreement on several points: everyone, for instance, agrees that subsidies for companies in Cook Inlet are too high and that generous tax perks for new oil should eventually expire. She hopes those changes are enough.But Homer Rep. Paul Seaton, one of the Republicans who bucked the leadership in the House, says the bill must address credits on the North Slope, too.“We need to limit that liability instead of just waiting for it to hit us on the head – like a hammer,” Seaton said.Either way, lawmakers said they expect to see some new version of the oil tax reform bill soon.Share this story:last_img read more

Stocks were more upbeat as investors bet that the US Federal Reserve might delay a much-anticipated rate hike and took comfort from the latest Chinese moves to calm volatile markets.The blue chip index drew support from gains in mining companies as the price of copper rebounded, although an eight per cent drop in Glencore shares demonstrated continued volatility. Traders cited uncertainty over possible equity issuance and the outlook in China as fuelling short bets on the stock, which fell to an all-time low.“Even the China-exposed names, such as miners, we think have fallen too far. Much of the negative news is priced in as the PMI data was not a surprise and we were expecting a weak print,” Atif Latif, director of trading at Guardian Stockbrokers, said.Ashtead, the biggest gainer, was up 7.8 per cent after posting a first-quarter profit rise helped by a rebound in US construction markets.“Progress in the quarter is thanks to strong execution and a strategy of geographical and sector diversification… as well as a seasonal improvement in demand following a weather-impacted spring,” Mike van Dulken, head of research at Accendo Markets, said in a note.Pharmaceutical company Hikma was also among the biggest gainers, up 4.5 per cent after an upgrade by Barclays.Among mid-caps, the car-parts-to-bikes retailer Halfords fell 8.6 per cent after a recent boom in bicycle sales dropped off sharply in its second quarter due to wet August weather and increased discounting in the market.Oil stocks were also down as the price of Brent crude continued to retreat from highs set on Monday. Shell fell 1.8 per cent, BP was down 1.4 per cent and BG dropped 1.2 per cent.Premier Oil fell 6.5 per cent, Ophir Energy was down 5.5 per cent, and Tullow Oil dropped 3.2 per cent.Engineering company Diploma was the second heaviest mid-cap loser, down 7.8 per cent, because currency hedging contracts set to expire next year will be replaced by more expensive ones, hitting the next financial year’s operations.

IIROC to publish CRM reforms by year-end

The Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) is planning to publish its version of the latest Client Relationship Model (CRM) reforms by the end of the year, the regulator says. IIROC published a new report Tuesday that outlines its policy priorities for the next 12 months, and the status of those various initiatives. The report indicates that the regulator expects to publish its version of the CRM2 reforms in December. Facebook LinkedIn Twitter TD Waterhouse fined $4 million for ignoring CRM2 Share this article and your comments with peers on social media First enforcement, now an exemption The Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) finalized its version of these reforms — which impose new client cost and account performance reporting obligations on dealers — in July. IIROC indicates that its version of these rules will be phased in with the same sorts of transition periods adopted in the CSA rules, giving firms up to three years to fully implement all of the requirements. “In accordance with the implementation timelines established by the CSA, there will be different implementation periods commencing on the date of issuance of implementation notice,” it says. Additionally, the report indicates that IIROC is developing new guidance on complying with the first set of CRM reforms, which are currently in the process of being implemented. That guidance will further clarify the updated requirements for account relationship disclosure and know your client (KYC) and suitability assessment obligations. It is expected to be published for comment in November. Among other things, IIROC also expects to publish guidance on borrowing for investment purposes in October. In March 2014, it will issue guidance on the use of business titles and designations, and guidance on compensation structures for retail accounts. For June next year, it is planning further updated guidance on KYC and suitability assessment. IIROC notes that this policy prioritization exercise will help it ensure that it is focusing on the right issues, and “striking an appropriate balance”. It also says that it will “regularly review initiatives underway to determine what is necessary, can be phased in or deferred.” “We are aware of the challenges in the current economic environment and the impact that rapid changes and global domestic developments are having on our stakeholders,” said IIROC president and CEO, Susan Wolburgh Jenah. “We have developed this report to ensure that our policy agenda is fully transparent to our stakeholders and that market participants are aware of what is on the horizon and can plan and prepare appropriately.” Related news James Langton Keywords Client relationship modelCompanies Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada CRM2 fee disclosures fail to enlighten, empower investors: report read more

This makes it easier for whānau to know where to get help as services are coordinated to support people in the best way possible,” Andrew Little said.“The peer support workers will be people with their own lived experience, or who have supported friends or whānau through mental health or addiction issues.“The intention will be that these peer support workers act as a first step in preventing a crisis to ensure those in need can get help early.”He Ara Oranga: Report of the Government Inquiry into Mental Health and Addiction, highlighted the need for services to incorporate lived experience and peer-led solutions as well as new ways of engagement to better help communities.In response this Government invested $8 million over four years to improve crisis response in Budget 2019.Te Tāwharau will include adult respite residential beds provided by kaupapa Māori Iwi provider Te Taiwhenua o Heretaunga, an emergency mental health and home-based treatment team, peer-support workers, Ministry of Social Development support and a police liaison.Te Tāwharau is expected to be fully operational towards the end of June. /Public Release.
