For Raiders, getting back on track means back on schedule

first_imgALAMEDA — Derek Carr knows what you’re thinking.Pretty much the opposite of what was on your mind after winning three straight home games.“You rewind two weeks ago, we were the greatest story in the NFL, and two weeks later we suck again,” Carr said Wednesday as the Raiders (6-6) began preparations to host the Tennessee Titans (7-5) at the Coliseum. “I think we’ll be alright. We are just going to keep grinding, we’re going to stick with what we do.”Or at least to what they did while …last_img read more

Liberty Holdings expands in Kenya

first_img“This transaction checks all three of those boxes and while the acquisition is small within the context of the overall group it provides a strategic platform which is expected to add significant value to shareholders into the future.” Hemphill said that the company’s intention was to enter markets that were benefitting from political and regulatory stability, where there is strong economic growth, and where there is potential for greater penetration on wealth products. CfC will be positioned to benefit from economies of scale, the extraction of synergies between the businesses and from greater capital efficiency, resulting in improved returns for all shareholders; and the restructured businesses will provide Liberty with a sound platform for organic and acquisitive growth in Kenya and elsewhere in the region.

See: Using SAinfo material Potential for wealth products “The acquisition provides us with the full range of wealth pillars and opens up further opportunities in East Africa, a region that is of strategic importance to Liberty,” said Humphill. Liberty expects the medium- to long- term benefits in acquiring control of the business to include: As a separate listed entity with Liberty as an anchor shareholder, CfC will benefit from greater focus and the value available from having a strategic shareholder with significant insurance expertise and access to funds for growth; “CfC is an ideal platform from which to achieve Liberty’s growth objectives of establishing a leading position in the life, health, short term and asset management wealth pillars in East Africa,” the statement read. South African wealth manager Liberty Holdings is to bolster its African footprint when its assumes an approximately 57% controlling share of CfC Insurance Holdings, a leading Kenyan life, health and general insurance group consisting of CfC Life Assurance and The Heritage Insurance Company. “Liberty has made clear its strategic intent to grow its business within Africa’s important economies, leveraging off Standard Bank’s presence, and specifically to develop a presence in East Africa,” said Liberty Holdings CEO Bruce Hemphill in a statement this week. 4 December 2009 “A combination of these factors provides an ideal opportunity to build critical mass in the region,” he explained. This follows the restructuring of the East African assets of Standard Bank, which controls Liberty Holdings through its 53.6% stake. CfC Life and Heritage are providers of life, health and short-term insurance products in both the Kenyan and Tanzanian markets. Acquisition benefitslast_img read more

Economy to grow at 3% in 2012: Busa

first_imgBusa said it wanted to turn many more South Africans into a nation of victors over adversity and deprivation rather than victims trapped on welfare dependency. Business Unity South Africa (Busa) says it expects South Africa’s economy to grow by 3% in 2012. Implications for growth include volatility in the exchange rate and the country’s trade balance would persist for the time being. Busa said that, depending on developments abroad, the rand could weaken again if a sustainable, practical plan was not devised soon to resolve the Eurozone debt crisis. He said while this was positive growth, it was insufficient to meet South Africa’s socio-economic challenges, especially given the downside risk. “At this rate, it will take South Africa much longer to reach its job creation and other socio-economic targets.” Presenting Busa’s economic and business outlook for the country in 2012 this week, Busa deputy CEO Raymond Parsons said that, looking at the present evidence, a 3% Gross Domestic Product (GDP) trajectory though 2012 could be expected in a best-case scenario. Busa said there should be no “tax shocks” when Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan tables the country’s Budget in February, given the vulnerability of the economic recovery and the uncertain global situation which would damage business confidence and harm growth potential. “Aggressive taxation may defeat its own ends by diminishing the income to be taxed,” Busa cautioned. “Either strengthen public sector delivery, keeping government affordable and the tax burden reasonable or face a continued failure to ensure delivery, leading to rising costs, reductions in services and greater financing challenges.” It said that keeping state spending under control would continue to require a streamlining of government and what it delivers. “The general rule should be that government spending should boost growth and reduce poverty.” “There are whirlpools on both sides, not on one only. If a serious global recession does unfold, then South Africa’s growth rate could well fall below 3% next year,” Parsons said. Inflation within target range “A renewed recession in the global economy may even promote a further cut in rates in South Africa as recently suggested by the OECD [Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development]. Meanwhile, headline inflation was expected to continue hovering at the upper range of the Reserve Bank’s inflation target range. Core inflation remained well within the target range, with little sign of secondary inflation. As such, Busa expects interest rates to be kept unchanged for the time being, probably well into 2012. Parsons added that President Jacob Zuma had recently warned that welfare payments could continue to grow out of proportion to tax revenues. “There remains a clear and urgent choice for South Africa which is reflected in both the New Growth Path (NGP) and National Development Plan (NDP) roadmaps,” said Parsons. According to Busa’s impressions, corporate balance sheets were currently strong and clean. “It is necessary to underpin the role of business and investor confidence in order to promote economic recovery,” said Parsons.

It takes THREE — Geocache of the Week

first_imgFriends are great for laughing, building confidence, and helping to find geocaches. These are the foundations of any true friendship. While we all need a friend to lean on from time to time for a smiley, there are a few caches that require you to bring friends along. For this geocache, it takes two. Difficulty:3Terrain:1.5 Location:Washington, United StatesN 47° 31.965′ W 122° 02.179′ TraditionalGC7WE07by Bouncebouncecenter_img SharePrint RelatedHow to have a ball when creating a geocache: Interview with cache owner Bouncebounce!April 23, 2019In “News”S.P.D. #1 – Welcome! — Geocache of the WeekApril 26, 2017In “Geocache of the Week”Thank a geocaching volunteer dayMay 21, 2019In “Volunteers” Tucked away behind an archaic gas station in Washington state is a Traditional Cache—an expert collaboration between two prominent hiders: Bouncebounce & Goblindust. Both cache owners are electronically adept and have the geocaching acumen to pull something like this off. If you’ve heard these names before, it is no surprise that electronics and buttons are involved to solve this cache.As soon as you walk behind the building, you come face to face with a giant cigar sign: your smoking gun that lets you know there’s a geocache nearby. Even if you spot the container, it isn’t enough. It’s up to you to find six buttons scattered throughout the area. They are inconveniently placed too far away to reach for one or two people to “pole” off, therefore teamwork is essential to clinch this smiley. If your team is in position to press all six buttons at the same time, you’ll be in funny positions and the cache container will magically open to reveal what’s inside. SWAG, trackables, and a ‘sasquatch search agency’ sticker appear,along with the logbook for you and your team to sign.Bouncebounce and Goblindust put their minds together to create this fun and entertaining geocache which promotes teamwork within the community. Reading through the logs on the cache page is a testament to how engaging and thoughtful this geocache is. Goblindust’s creative hides were previously highlighted in our blog, so we’re giving a shout out to Bouncebounce about how he comes up with his creative cache concepts. Look out for the interview tomorrow!Share with your Friends:Morelast_img read more

From Concept to Cash in 365 Days

first_imgbrandon mendelson 1 I had hoped that by 25, I would have been living in LA, dating actresses, and getting bit parts in bad movies as “the ugly guy”… you know, in the event that the studio wanted a Steve Buscemi-type, but not the Steve Buscemi.Instead, I’m 26, broke, and trapped in Glens Falls, New York. I vent my frustrations by writing comedy pieces for the Huffington Post, I run a blog about social publishing, and, for some odd reason, I’m more popular than Serena Williams, Newt Gingrich, and Stephen Colbert … on Twitter. Sadly, this doesn’t help my chances with Serena or make me any money.I’d like to change that this year.The Two Traditional Funding OptionsI’m not big on corporate sponsorship. I’ll work with a company if it makes sense, but I’m burned out from so many years of chasing sponsorships. Sponsorship is a game for the well-networked or those whose presence is so big that they can’t be ignored.Nor do I want to deal with investors. I could write a business plan, take it to some venture capitalists, and pull in the money, but at what cost? The last thing I want is a group of MBAs watering my project down to please shareholders.The Third Way I started researching crowdfunding as an alternative. I came up with the unusually bright idea of selling advertising space on the back of 300,000 business cards. $1 gets someone an advertisement on one card, and they buy as many as they want. The incentive is that the cards are being used to set a Guinness World Record for “tallest wall made out of business cards,” which makes them desirable and a collectible piece of advertising after the record is set.A Million High Fives (or #AMHF) is the project I’m attempting to crowdfund and form a new business around. Although #AMHF is supposed to accomplish many things, I also want it to make crowdfunding a cool thing to do. If I can do it, you can do it. And if we can do it, then who needs sponsorship or venture capital?I’ll be documenting the crowdfunding of A Million High Fives and my new business from concept to cash exclusively here on ReadWriteStart. I have no connections, no money, and no resources — just a big idea and a platform here on ReadWriteWeb. If I fail, you’ll see every step of the fall. If I succeed, we’ll have plenty to learn along the way. Not to mention, we’ll be setting a Guinness World Record together. How cool is that?
