- No Comments on EU court confirms lifeboat fund must amend compensation limit [updated]
- Posted on
The lifeboat fund also applies a limit on annual compensation for members that chose to take early retirement.Hampshire launched his case after his expected annual pension was slashed by 67% following the insolvency of Turner & Newall, formerly a manufacturing business, and the transfer of the plan to the PPF’s assessment period.Today’s ruling cannot be appealed, so the PPF must now discuss with the government’s work and pensions department about how to implement it. A spokeswoman for the fund said this process had already started.The PPF said that the “vast majority” of its members already received more than half of their accrued benefits, meaning “less than 1%” were expected to be eligible for an increase. This would push its liabilities up by at most 1%, the fund said.As of 31 March 2018, the PPF had total liabilities of £29.6bn (€32.9bn) but assets worth £36.3bn, meaning it was 122% funded.The spokeswoman added: “We will work to implement the judgment as quickly as possible but first need to consider the judgment further to understand what action we can take prior to legislative change and the conclusion of the UK court proceedings. “Members can be reassured that we will update them further as soon as we are able.”The headline for this story was updated on 6 September to clarify that the compensation limit will not be scrapped following the ECJ ruling. The UK’s Pension Protection Fund (PPF) must ensure all of its members receive at least half of the defined benefit (DB) pension they were promised before their employer went bankrupt, according to a European court ruling today.The European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruled this morning in line with a legal opinion published in April by Advocate General Juliane Kokott on the case of Grenville Hampshire versus the board of the PPF.The ECJ said the EU’s rule regarding pension compensation “must be interpreted as meaning that every individual employee must receive old-age benefits corresponding to at least 50% of the value of his accrued entitlement under a supplementary occupational pension scheme in the event of his employer’s insolvency”.Currently, the PPF pays 90% of the pension entitlements of DB scheme members when their employer goes bust. Those who have already retired receive 100%, but may face limits on inflation-linked uplifts.
Consolidated Properties Group executive chairman Don O’Rorke.As land lots shrink, many Brisbane families have opted for an apartment as their family home, instead of investing in house and land.RELATED:Aspire to high design at SpireThat is according to the developer of Brisbane’s Spire Residences Consolidated Properties, who noted data from the Queensland Statistician’s Office showed the average Brisbane homesite had shrunk 203sq m in 10 years, from 604sq m in 2008, to 410sq m in 2018.Spire Residences, Queen St, Brisbane.Consolidated Properties Group executive chairman Don O’Rorke said the change in housing trends meant more families were now choosing apartments and embracing an inner city lifestyle instead of moving to the suburbs.“It’s really interesting to see the diverse mix of buyers we are getting at our inner city Spire Residences development,” Mr O’Rorke said.“Apartments have typically been the domain for singles and young couples, and while that is still certainly the case, we are now seeing some families choose a unit over a backyard.“It makes sense, when you consider that Spire offers more than 1000sq m of lifestyle amenities.”Spire’s infinity edge pool and its amazing city views.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus16 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market16 hours agoHe said the “crowning jewel” of the building, designed by award-winning John Wardle Architects, was its rooftop, which included one of the city’s highest pool, dining and entertaining zones and a 20-seat cinema.“Here, residents can take in the Story Bridge, Brisbane River and Kangaroo Point Cliffs from the infinity edge pool — there are very few places in Brisbane where you can do that.”>>FOLLOW EMILY BLACK ON FACEBOOK<
GOLF TO GLORYDilshan and TharangaThe Sri Lankan players used a novel way of warming up for their clash with Zimbabwe at Pallekele on March 10. At the Victoria Golf Resort, the team played golf and every player had to tee off on his knees. Once on the green, putters could not be used. The ball had to be flicked into the hole with fingers. It worked. Upul Tharanga and Tillakaratne Dilshan stood tall with centuries in a record 282-run opening stand and Muttiah Muralitharan’s fingers snapped up his final wicket in his last appearance on his home ground.SONG SEARCHThe theme song for the Cricket World Cup, composed by Indian music directors Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy, has been played a thousand times since the start of the tournament. It’s a catchy number but when you have heard it so many times, it becomes an irritant. With the 2011 World Cup co-hosted by three countries, wouldn’t it have been appropriate to have songs from Bangladesh and Sri Lanka to go with the Indian rendition? After all, the grand opening ceremony in Dhaka showcased cultures of the three host countries, but De Ghuma Ke is the only song we hear. Maybe a new song could spark a change of fortune for the Indian cricket team.The Wrong OneSouth African players celebrate victoryA crestfallen Indian team faced another shock when team members reached their hotel in Nagpur after losing to South Africa. There was a welcome party waiting for them. Why? Fans were confident of an Indian victory. Realising the situation was not right for flowers and speeches, the hotel management intervened and requested the fans to honour the South African players. The Proteas partied till morning. advertisement Ground rulesThe use of Umpire Decision Review System in the World Cup has come up with some enlightening facts. Of the nine reviews used by New Zealand, the Kiwis have found only one going in their favour. Bangladesh have “lost” eight out of eight. Australia have used only it only five times and got two right. Australians are letting their cricket do the talking and allowing the umpires to make the calls. Playing the game, not technology, is the success mantra for the defending champions.- The writer is an ESPN Star Sports commentator for the World Cup 2011

In the second edition, Australian Men’s Open captain, Nathan Jones, speaks about how it feels to be captain of the side and his memories from the 2007 World Cup in South Africa. Nathan Jones on:Being named captain of the Australian Men’s Open team:It was a special feeling to be named captain and it’s an achievement I am very proud of. We have a great ‘team’ culture in the current Men’s Open team and I feel extremely privileged and honoured to be able to lead such a talented team at the World Cup.His past Australian captains and what he has learnt from them: I have had two previous captains in the Men’s Open team in Gavin Shuker and Drumayne Dayberg-Muir. Both have different personalities and leadership styles. Drum was a dominant player on the field for our team and would lead in that respect whereas Shukes did a lot of work behind the scenes with tactics and game plans. I have my own ideas on captaincy so there will be differences between us but if I can have the same success as these guys I’ll be happy. His memories of the 2007 World Cup: Aside from visiting New Zealand a couple of times, South Africa was my first real experience overseas. The tour started with a couple of days sightseeing which included a visit to Table Mountain in Cape Town and a bus tour around the Western Cape. One memory that has stayed with me is when we drove past a shanty town on the way back from the bus tour. On one side of the road are rusty tin shacks as far as you can see and the other side are two storey houses surrounded by 10 metre high fences. The difference in living conditions and the poverty experienced by some South Africans was unbelievable. The days sightseeing allowed us to take in some of the culture and gain a greater appreciation for the country before we got down to business. The opening ceremony was a great experience and obviously winning the final but what I remember most is the dressing room before the final. I have never been in a more intense and passionate dressing room before a game. I can’t remember exactly what was said (I’m sure Trady had a very motivational speech) but the feeling and atmosphere was incredible.His individual training in the lead up to the World Cup: After injuring my ankle at the National Touch League, I have been doing some alternative training which has included some pool sessions with Australian Mixed Open captain Ryan Pollock. While Ryan’s freestyle technique has improved his backstroke still resembles an octopus falling out of a tree. Aside from swimming I have been fitting in some cycling, gym and running sessions before and after my long days at work.Stay tuned to the website to hear from Australia’s other captains, with insight into Australia’s preparation in the lead up to the World Cup.

- No Comments on NYC Origin Final in the Girls / All Queensland Affair in the Boys
- Posted on
By @JulianTFA at Sunshine Coast Stadium, QueenslandIt was a light, bright Sunshine Coast Stadium that set the stage and tone for the business end of the 2016 Harvey Norman NYC tournament; with titles on the line and tight finishes the order of the day. A flat fast track on field one through seven set up a Super Saturday of freestyling Touch Football and finals hopes and dreams delivered and dashed.In the first semi-final of the day in front a packed stadium, it was the NSW Development girlsâ€™ team that opened their account early against the South-Queensland Sharks booking their place in the final with an emphatic 4-1 win. In the other match a dominant QSST rolled on and over the Brisbane Cobras 11-3 setting up an Origin finale, youth style. Ahead of the mid-afternoon â€˜NSW Devâ€™ v QSST grand final, coach in the blue corner, Barry Gibson was calm and quietly confident of his girlsâ€™ prospects going into the decider.â€œLook, they (QSST) will be a massive hurdle, but we are going to give everything weâ€™ve got,â€ he said in a relaxed frame, post team recovery. â€œWeâ€™ve got a good game plan and structures and the girls are all buying into that. â€œThere are a few niggles in the group but we have 15 girls who desperately want to win. They are very excited and are all enjoying themselves which is what itâ€™s all about. From the moment Maddison Higgins-Ashby crossed early for NSW Development, they looked assured and ready to go another step further into this competition. The Origin like finale promises to be a beauty with both teams primed for a stellar finish. Over on field two, Gibsonâ€™s fellow national Under 17â€™s coach (boys), Jason Boyd too was quietly confident but expecting a tough grand final rematch from last year. His QSST lads primed too for the big one against Central Queensland Bulls (A). â€œVery pleased actually just the way they finished off the game (against the South Queensland Sharks),â€ Boyd said following the 12-6 win over the Sharks.â€œWe layed down some good structure in our defence and pushed on with our attack which was good,â€ he added.â€œThey run the play book really well and can elaborate on that when need be.â€With just a few hours till the finals (3.20pm girls/4.20pm boys), Boyd wasnâ€™t getting himself or his team ahead of themsleves on the cusp of a repeat victory and national youth honours. â€œYou can never be too confident. It will be a classic rematch and another great final. They have some great youth coming through and are building form strength-to-strength.â€In the other semi-final encounter CQ Bulls (A) overcame a spirited NSWCHS 11-5 to cement their spot in the grand final replay.Watch out for the sibling rivalry as the brothersâ€™ Moore go at it in the final: Blake of the QSST variety and Aaron for the CQ Bulls. There will be no love lost nor quarter gained as the respecitive number sixes see just who is the best of breed and claims bragging rights in the Moore household of Rockhampton.

About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Liverpool hero Heskey: Klopp shouldn’t rest Salah and Maneby Paul Vegas13 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool hero Emile Heskey says Jurgen Klopp shouldn’t rest star pair Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane. Heskey is adamant that Klopp should not be worried too much about the health of Salah and Mane, insisting that the duo will want to play as many games as they can.“Salah and Mane won’t want a rest and Liverpool shouldn’t give them one,” Heskey told bwin.“They’ve played a lot of football over the past few seasons, but as a player, you want to be playing as much as possible. When you look at the pair of them, they just love being out on the pitch and playing football – they’re a manager’s dream.“In the modern game, players are complete athletes. Although they’ve played a lot of games it won’t be the physical side that catches up with them, it will be the mental side.”It can sometimes be draining playing so many games without a break, so they may want to take a break for those reasons. However, they’ll both physically be as fit and ready to go as any other player.”
