first_img“These are some of the most important tasks Chresten Dengsøe will face at the top as the new chief executive,” Nielsen said.She said Dengsøe had a profile that combined strong skills in pensions, risk management, leadership and investment.As well as being chief executive of Lægernes Pensionskasse and Lægernes Pensionsbank, he would also be responsible for the unit Lægernes Pensionsinvestering, she said.ATP, meanwhile, said Ulla Schjødt-Hansen, vice president, had been named as acting chief actuary. Its chief executive Carsten Stendevad thanked Dengsøe for his contribution to the statutory pension fund and congratulated his on the new challenges.An ATP spokesman said the pension fund would now start a structured process to identify suitable candidates to replace Dengsøe.In other news, Danish labour-market pension fund PensionDanmark returned between 4.2% and 6.9% in the first quarter of this year on the back of rising equities prices, and saw regular contributions climb by 8%.In absolute terms, the pension fund made a return of DKK9.8bn (€1.3bn) between January and March, up from DKK4.2bn in the same period last year, according to the first quarter data.This fed through into a 4.2% return on the savings of 65-year-old members and 6.9% for 40-year-olds, up from 3.0% and 2.6% respectively in the first quarter of 2014.Regular contributions rose 8% to DKK2.57bn from DKK2.37bn, and the increase confirmed that employment at companies that have pension schemes with PensionDanmark was starting to grow strongly, the fund said.Torben Möger Pedersen, chief executive of PensionDanmark, said: “We are very pleased with result in the first quarter, when, we, like other investors, benefited well from rising share prices.”But the pension fund continued to see significant swings on financial markets, and was therefore continuing to build up its portfolio of stable alternatives, he said. ATP’s chief risk officer and chief actuary Chresten Dengsøe is leaving ATP to take the helm at Lægernes Pensionskasse, the Danish pension fund for doctors.Dengsøe will take over as chief executive on 1 August from Niels Lihn Jørgensen, who is retiring after 25 years as the head of the pension fund.Linda Nielsen, chairman of Lægernes Pensionskasse, said: “Lægernes Pensionskasse has developed from a traditional pension fund to a all-round business with solid skills in the pensions and banking sphere.”At the same time, doctors’ needs had changed and there were now more demands placed upon pension funds than before, she said.last_img read more

Coomera, Mermaid Waters and Burleigh Heads With an average sale price of $475,000 and Queensland’s fastest population growth in 2017, this part of the northern corridor straddling the M1 is prime to see further growth in 2019. Recent additions and future additions to the community include Pimpama Shopping Centre, a sporting precinct, Coomera Westfield and a new train station.Benowa is a school catchment play — a lot of people trying to buy into the area now that the catchment zone has been narrowed for Benowa State High School.Some zoning leniency, particularly on Benowa Rd and surrounding streets, has seen a lot of old buildings removed and duplexes or new builds replacing them, therefore increasing the values. More from news02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa13 hours ago02:37Gold Coast property: Sovereign Islands mega mansion hits market with $16m price tag2 days agoThere is also a fantastic spectrum of property in this area.There is a lot going on in Southport of course with a healthy mix of industry, residential, development, shopping precincts and The Southport School. A regular look at the City of Gold Coast development applications site will show you that Southport continues to undergo some dramatic changes. Isle of Capri, Sorrento and Clear Island Waters Nerida Conisbee, chief economist at REA Group Aerial view of Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast in Australia.THOUSANDS of people are moving to the Gold Coast every year which means demand for property remains strong. So where should you be looking to buy in 2019?We asked several different agents across the city to pick their top three suburbs to watch in 2019.Here are their thoughts: Mermaid Waters is a central suburb is close to the beach and close to all the action, and yet has been a little overlooked by buyers in the recent past. I expect prices in Mermaid Waters will quickly start “catching up” to its beachside neighbours of Mermaid Beach and Miami.I think Tugun is undervalued and has been for some time. However, I think people are now waking up the incredible lifestyle opportunities available in the suburb.Mudgeeraba sits west of the M1 but I think this suburb has great potential. There are some Terrific properties, particularly larger semirural estates, that offer owners a central Gold Coast location that is close to great schools, great shopping and a short drive to the beach. With the completion of the $1 billion development of the Westfield Coomera Town Centre I believe this area will continue to flourish with excellent amenities now in place in the suburb. Main roads into and out of the suburb have now been upgraded as well further enhancing the appeal of this area.Centrally located to take advantage of significant future investment in the Star Casino Complex, Sunlands Lanes Precinct and Stage 3 of the Gold Coast Light Rail, Mermaid Waters will enjoy further infrastructure on its doorstep. Still under priced when compared to neighbouring suburbs means this suburb has a strong outlook for 2019.With its trendy, relaxed beachside lifestyle and abundance of excellent dining venues, Burleigh Heads continues to be highly sought after by both interstate families relocating and Gold Coasters alike. With an increasing trend of the workforce going online or having the ability to work remotely, this is the ultimate spot for those seeking to get the work/life balance right. The new southern terminal of the Gold Coast light rail will also produce benefits for the area. Mitch Palmer, Ray White Mermaid Waters Sam Guo, Ray White Broadbeach Tallebudgera is close to the beach, shops, M1 and private schools and it offers an ideal acreage lifestyle for families looking for a tree change. They do not want to be too far away from the beach and amenities.Runaway Bay is very central, safe and offers quick access to the Broadwater, schools, shops and world class sporting facilities.It’s 10 minutes to Surfers Paradise and 15 minutes to the M1. To me it’s all about location and as our city grows and evolves into a bigger city people start looking at all these things while they make a decision on where to settle.In regards to Surfers Paradise, places like Paradise Waters, Cronin Island and Isle of Capri are all so central. World famous beaches are your backyard and great restaurants, shops and schools are all within a short stroll. It’s also s minutes to Pacific Fair and The Star Gold Coast. Andrew Henderson — Professionals John Henderson Real Estate Troy Dowke of Ray White Mermaid Beach. Pic John Gass Isle of Capri will continue to be a popular area. The shopping centre is a big plus, and it’s within walking distance to beaches and Surfers Paraidse.It also has a local village feel. Sorrento is going to be a popular area too with its larger waterfront blocks and the fact it is a safe family-friendly area.Clear Island Waters has also mad emy top three.It has massive waterfront homes, a large Asian community and it’s close to Pacific Fair and Q Super Centre. Tallebudgera, Runaway Bay and Surfers Paradisecenter_img Mermaid Waters, Tugun and Mudgeeraba Amir Mian, of Prestige Property Agents. Photo: Regi Varghese I think Currumbin (because) of it’s low rise living environment. Burleigh Heads will always remain strong, especially with the new pavilion being built there above Rick Shores. I also think Bilinga will remain attractive for that relaxed vibe. Nerida Conisbee, chief economist at REA Group. Andrew Bell — Ray White Surfers Paradise Group Pimpama, Benowa and Southport Ashmore is a suburb that has been overlooked for a long period of time and offers a very central location with easy access to Southport CBD, Surfers Paradise, Broadbeach, and easy access to the M1 for travel north and south of the Gold Coast. It is surrounded by numerous regional shopping centres and excellent mature foliage from well established trees and some elevation to pick up a breeze that is rarely obtained on a flat Gold Coast landscape. Adjoining upmarket areas such as Benowa and Royal Pines, it is predominately dominated by older established homes and is ideal for those looking to renovate, or, for those looking for established homes, many have been renovated and offer outstanding value.Chirn Park is a unique area with character not found elsewhere on the Gold Coast.There’s lots of charming older homes in the suburb with old fashioned values and contemporary conveniences such as restaurants and coffee shops frequented largely by locals. Santa Barbara is a suburb that most people don’t know exists on the Gold Coast but situated in a small little pocket at the entrance to Sanctuary Cove. An amazing private community that offers a unique lifestyle on the Gold Coast. Edward Smyth — NGU Gold Coast Amir Mian, Prestige Property Agents Troy Dowker — Ray White Mermaid Beach Ashmore, Chirn Park and Santa Barbara Currumbin, Burleigh Heads, and Bilinga Andrew Henderson of Professionals John Henderson Real Estate. Jerad Williams Tallebudgera Valley, Currumbin Waters and Tugun We continue to see far higher views per listing for these suburbs and this high demand generally sets the suburb up for better price growth. Tugun is also a good one for investors in that it is the suburb we see the most demand from renters.last_img read more

first_imgDid you ever wonder why we have mascots and where they came from?  They began in the 1800’s when high school and college teams used real animals to be their school’s mascot.  This turned out to be costly because they had to feed and house the live mascots.  This led them to use real people in animal-like costumes.There are two theories as to why schools wanted mascots.  One theory suggests that the schools thought their mascots were good luck charms.  The second idea is that the schools and other teams believed they would be good will ambassadors.  Professional teams now use these mascots everywhere hoping to draw people to their events.  College mascots also have public relation events that they are required to attend in hopes of attracting people to their school.All schools hope that their mascots bring them positive publicity rather than offending someone.  We know that Batesville adopted the Bulldog in the 20’s, but does anyone out there no why?  I don’t.last_img read more

first_img The Willie Mullins-trained grey, who skipped the Cheltenham Festival to wait for this, will again be taken on by Oscar Whisky, who has finished a neck in front of him in the last two renewals of the Grade One contest but ran a lifeless race in the World Hurdle on his last appearance. Paul Townend will be in the saddle on Thousand Stars as Ruby Walsh will be riding Zarkandar for Paul Nicholls, who also saddles Prospect Wells. Oscar Whisky will be ridden by Tony McCoy for the first time as stable jockey Barry Geraghty has chosen to ride Grandouet, a faller in the Champion Hurdle. The New One, such an impressive winner of the Neptune Novices’ Hurdle at Cheltenham for the Nigel Twiston-Davies team, will represent the novice division. Countrywide Flame, who ran so well to be third in the Champion Hurdle for John Quinn, will aim to give the stable another big winner after Levitate claimed the Lincoln on Saturday. Raya Star represents Alan King, while Saphir River completes the field for Lucinda Russell as the race is run in its new slot on the first day of the meeting. Thousand Stars faces eight rivals as he attempts to go one better than the last two seasons in the John Smith’s Aintree Hurdle on Thursday.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

first_img City were granted planning permission in February to increase the size of the arena from its current 47,670 capacity to 62,170. The development, which will feature extensions to the north and south stands, has been split into two parts. City have confirmed the appointment of international engineering company Laing O’Rourke as construction partners and ground engineering work on the South Stand site will begin immediately. The expanded South Stand will take capacity to 54,000 by the 2015-16 season, something which will be marked by the introduction of a new £299 season ticket. Tom Glick, City’s chief commercial officer, said: “The expansion of the stadium is a hugely significant moment for City. “We are delighted to announce Laing O’Rourke as a partner as we embark on this historic project. “The waiting list for the expanded Etihad is already close to capacity and we look forward to seeing a sell-out 54,000-seat stadium as we open the 2015 season.” Laing O’Rourke were involved in the initial construction of the stadium, which was built for the 2002 Commonwealth Games. The expansion is City’s second major construction project in quick succession after the building of their new £200million Academy and training complex, which is due to open this summer. Manchester City have announced that the first phase of work to expand the Etihad Stadium is to begin imminently.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

first_imgPrior to the season, Ganguly was appointed as the advisor of Delhi Capitals.Delhi Capitals won their first game against Mumbai Indians. Rishabh Pant has been the highest run scorer for Delhi till now.  “Sir, is it practically possible ? in one hand CAB president is supporting the local franchisee (sic) to conduct the match administratively and in another way (on another hand), CAB President is sitting with the team officials of Delhi Capitals as an Advisor,” he further wrote. While Ganguly was unavailable for a comment, a source close to the former Indian captain maintained that there is “absolutely no Conflict of Interest”.”Sourav has taken permission from the CoA. And let me make it clear, he will be very much present in the Delhi Capitals dug-out on April 12. There is no question of withdrawing when relevant permissions are in place.”While it is still not clear whether Jain will take cognizance of the letters written by fans, a senior BCCI official termed the accusation as “absolutely preposterous”.”Basically, some fans want to insinuate that Ganguly as CAB president can influence local curators during DC vs KKR match at the Eden Gardens on April 12. This is preposterous. You are questioning the integrity of one of our greatest captains. I don’t know if it’s a part of BCCI’s larger politics,” the official said. Recently, the BCCI has faced controversies with local franchises expressing their unhappiness with the work of neutral curators.”Since some of the pitches have come under scanner during this IPL, maybe the timing of this complaint has got something to do with it,” the official said. With Inputs: PTI New Delhi: The BCCI Ombudsman DK Jain has received two complains that Sourav Ganguly will be “conflicted” if he performs his role as Delhi Capitals’ advisor in an upcoming IPL encounter against KKR at the Eden Gardens on April 12. Two West Bengal based cricket fans, Ranjit Seal and Bhaswati Shantua in separate communications to Justice (Retd) D K Jain has questioned Ganguly’s role as an advisor of Delhi Capitals when he is still the president of Cricket Association of Bengal.While Ganguly at the time of accepting the offer had made it clear that he has sought permission from the Committee of Administrators (CoA) and there is no “Conflict of Interest”, both the fans have posted a similar question to Jain, who is also the Ethics Officer of the board.”I would also like to draw your kind attention that on 12th April 2019 (inadvertently quoted 12th May 2019 in my earlier e-mail), Kolkata Knight Riders(KKR)? vs- Delhi Capital Match will be played at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. KKR is the local franchisee (sic), who is closely associated with the Cricket Association of Bengal,” one of the complainants Seal, wrote in his letter, which is in possession of PTI.  highlights For all the Latest Sports News News, Indian Premier League News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more
