first_img60 metric tonnes of emergency aid is due in the Philippines tomorrow from UNICEF’s central supplies in Denmark (Image: UNICEF).UNICEF’s warehouse in Copenhagen is airlifting US$1.3 million worth of additional supplies for another 10,000 families, including those affected by the recent earthquake in Bohol. The shipments contain water purification tablets, soap, medical kits, tarpaulins, and micronutrient supplements.Children who have escaped the terrible violence of Haiyan still need urgent assistance to survive the aftermath of the storm, the charity said today.Particular concerns include health, due to the impact of the typhoon on water supply and sanitation systems. Children also need safe and protected spaces to be able to play and resume studying while adults work to recover their homes and livelihoods.UNICEF launched its emergency appeal yesterday to address the immediate needs of children and their families. Donations can be made online of by calling Lo-call 1850 767 999. Children displaced by Super Typhoon Haiyan in the city of Tacloban, Leyte, Philippines (Image: UNICEF/JMaitem)IT IS NOW estimated that up to four million children could be affected by the super typhoon that blasted through the Philippines.Staff from UNICEF have been rushing emergency supplies to areas ravaged by Typhoon Haiyan including therapeutic food for children, health kits, water and hygiene kits.The charity’s emergency specialist in Tacloban City, Leon Dominador Fajardo, said today: “People, families with children are walking along the ruined roads. I don’t know where they are going – there is nowhere to go. They are walking because their homes are gone and they have nowhere to go.”A family affected by Super Typhoon Haiyan resting along the street in the city of Tacloban, Leyte, Philippines (Image: UNICEF/JMaitem).“So many people have nothing. Their children are hungry, some are sick, and they are frustrated,” he explained.Christopher de Bono, Regional Chief of Communication, UNICEF East Asia and Pacific, said logistics in the affected areas are “a huge challenge”.There are many parts of the country that were in the path of Typhoon Haiyan that are still inaccessible, so there is a lot we still don’t know and many children – probably millions – who desperately need our help and are not yet receiving it.last_img read more

Iceland to write €24000 off every household mortgage

first_imgTHE ICELANDIC GOVERNMENT has announced that it will write off household mortgage debt in order to kickstart the economy.Under the plan, every household in the country will have €24,000 worth of debt written off.The move was part of the election manifesto of the Progressive Party, led by Prime Minister Sigmundur David Gunnlaugsson.The idea will cost the country €1.2 billion and will begin in mid-2014. Iceland has been burdened with debt since the 2008 financial crisis, which saw the krona collapse.A government statement said that the plan would kick-start consumer spending.“Currently, household debt is equivalent to 108 per cent of GDP, which is high by international comparison. “The action will boost household disposable income and encourage savings.”The plan has been criticised by the IMF, the OECD and various economists, with the IMF saying that the country has “little fiscal space” for the move, while the OECD says the plan should be limited to low income housing. The measure has improved the country’s rating with Standard & Poor’s, who upgraded the economic outlook from negative to stable.

We cant afford to give a pub €5000 Craft producers hit out

first_img Short URL 56 Comments Share61 Tweet Email3 Take me to Fora “Generally, you don’t get into a bar or you are removed. It’s like one of those exclusive door policies, when you’re not wearing a certain pair of shoes you don’t get in.“We didn’t have the money to say, ‘Here’s €5,000, do X, Y and Z.’ (These deals) put small guys at a huge disadvantage. It’s an awful pain in the arse, but there’s nothing that we really can do.”He added: “When you’re a small company you struggle to get cash to set up, and then when people do want to drink (your product), there are other people stopping you from trading.“It’s absolutely mad. It’s discouraging, it’s like being rejected by a secret society or club. You’re ostracised.“If I’d known what the market was like I’m not sure I would have set up here. We’ve done deals in the UK and America, and it’s much more straightforward. Because Ireland is so small, it’s easy to have control over it.”‘Pay us’Peter Mulryan, the founder of Waterford-based gin maker Blackwater Distillery, said that he has also found walls thrown up when trying to get his stock in pubs. An Irish distillery Source: Shutterstock/petereleven“It was about two years ago, we were told by a chain: ‘You can get in if you pay us or pay us with stock’. I remember thinking that sounded awful,” he said.“We said that we’re not a multinational and we don’t have deep pockets. They said they (multinationals) do, and we’ll take their stuff. We’re not dealing with that pub now. It’s pointless, it’s a mugs game.”Mulryan says that, as a result of the deals in the pub trade, Blackwater is now focusing on selling to retailers and off-licences.“We just focus on the off-trade now, they’re much straighter to deal with and the customer is much more in the driving seat,” he said.Both Mulryan and Bara said they understand why pubs accept offers from multinationals, however both said that they felt they are unjust and gave their big companies an unfair advantage.One individual who runs a small beer brewer, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said that there is “hardly a publican in Dublin or the country that doesn’t have some deal with the big guys, and some are locked in tighter than others”.“We’ve often faced a situation where someone says: ‘We would love to stock you, but we’re precluded because of arrangements with big drinks companies,” the brewer said. Stock image of beer barrels Source: Shutterstock/Tommy Lee WalkerEducationHowever, the craft brewer added that publicans “won’t bite the hand that feeds them” and said that craft brewers need to look for ways to promote their own products rather than trying to eradicate such deals.“As a group, craft brewers could do a lot more and educate the public on what we’re at so that people would say when they go into a bar, ‘Why don’t you have more craft beer, why don’t you have more local beer?’”The brewer acknowledged they may feel differently if their beer had been actively removed from a pub, but added: “There isn’t much point moaning about what’s going on, we need to focus on doing more so consumers go in and demand a better selection.”The Irish Brewers Association, which represents most of the big brewers in the Irish drinks industry, said it would be inappropriate to comment “because it is a commercial issue between an individual company and its suppliers”.The Independent Craft Brewers of Ireland, which represents about half of the smaller craft beer brewers in the Republic, said that it is “aware” of exclusive drinks deals.“They do set many of our members at a disadvantage and we feel they should not be allowed,” a spokeswoman said.“As far as we are aware, however, these practices are not illegal so unless there is a political will to enact laws against them there’s very little that can be done by authorities.“The real solution is for consumers to continue to demand choice and availability of independent Irish beer and for them to vote with their feet if they are not being offered it.”Sign up to our newsletter to receive a regular digest of Fora’s top articles delivered to your inbox.Written by Paul O’Donoghue and posted on Saturday 17 Feb 2018, 10:30 AM ‘We can’t afford to give a pub €5,000’: Craft producers hit out at exclusive drinks deals Many craft drinks producers say sweeteners offered by big companies are locking them out. Get Fora’s NEW daily digest of the morning’s key business news:center_img Feb 10th 2018, 6:01 AM By Fora Staff 36,960 Views CRAFT BREWERS AND distillers are routinely coming up against opposition in getting their drinks stocked in bars due to deals sewn up between publicans and big drinks companies.Last week Fora reported that large drinks firms regularly offer bars sweeteners such as free kegs of beer or even direct financial assistance.Now, multiple sources working in the craft industry have told Fora that they sometimes face being shut out when they cannot match the financial muscle of their larger rivals.The issue came on the agenda recently when it was revealed that C&C, the company behind Bulmers cider, claimed that Heineken abused its market power by striking deals with pubs to push Orchard Thieves.Alongside Richmond Marketing, a major drinks distributor that had similar grievances, it submitted a complaint to the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission.The competition regulator decided not to launch a full investigation into the issue, despite raising concerns that Heineken’s alleged practises “may result in anti-competitive effects”.Although it is unclear to what extent these deals are anti-competitive, if at all, many small companies have said that they hinder them from doing business and competing on an even footing with bigger rivals.In regards to the nature of the deals, the craft brewers Fora spoke to largely echoed the reports from publicans – who said sometimes huge sums of money being offered to bring a venue into the fold.Both groups said that deals would sometimes consist of companies offering pubs direct financial assistance but more often they would involve free alcohol often worth thousands, or tens of thousands, of euro.‘Absolutely mad’Some have said that they have even had products removed from bars once a rival has offered a pub a lucrative deal.Eoin Bara, the founder of Offaly based Mór Irish Gin, said that he has encountered bars “that say that they can’t stock us because we’re not part of a bigger drinks family”. Mór gin Source: Mór Gin“We got into one bar in town, (our products were) behind the bar of one very well-known bar in town,” he said.“People were buying the drink, but one of the reps from a drinks company came in and made them take it down from the bar.”According to Bara, there is little that small producers can do to work with bars that have such deals in place.

Gabe Newell says Valves VR headset doesnt make anyone throw up

first_imgVirtual reality goggles could spark a revolution in gaming — and computing in general — one day soon, but only if they don’t make wearers want to throw up after a few minutes of use. Valve says they’ve got the Pepto for VR nausea.Gabe Newell (or Gaben, as many of you know him) says that the Vive headset they’re developing in conjunction with HTC doesn’t have that nasty little side effect. In fact, he told The New York Times that “zero percent of people get motion sick” while experiencing VR using the Vive.Newell considers VR headsets to be the “world’s best motion sickness inducers.” Figuring out a solution to the problem, then, is imperative if the industry wants virtual reality to take off. No one’s going to want to buy a headset if they hear a friend of a friend bought one, took it home, and was throwing up all over the place five minutes later. Well, almost no one, anyway.The remedy for the motion sickness conundrum is simple enough: track a user’s movements as precisely as possible. Valve calls their high-resolution, nausea-busting technology Lighthouse.It’s a system made up of a base station that pairs with a set of handheld controllers, and Gaben thinks everyone working in VR can — and should — benefit from it. That’s why Valve has decided to “just give [it] away.” Newell has said that Valve wants Lighthouse to be ubiquitous, like USB… and not “some special secret sauce.”Lighthouse tech is cheap enough, according to Valve, that it can be integrated into just about anything — TVs and monitors, gamepads and mice… even smartphones and tablets. No licensing fee? Minimal impact on a device’s bill of materials? That’s the kind of thing that gets an OEM’s attention.last_img read more

Prospect Mortgage Offers Loan Programs for Sandy Victims

first_img “”Prospect Mortgage””:, a provider of home renovation and purchase financing, announced it is offering two loan programs to help homeowners impacted by Hurricane Sandy rebuild their lives.[IMAGE]The programs, backed by the “”Federal Housing Administration””: (FHA), provide funding beyond insurance or other disaster assistance by offering financing for owners in declared disaster areas to repair or rebuild their homes or even to purchase a new home if necessary.””For families whose lives have been torn apart by Sandy, rebuilding a home or purchasing a new one can be the most important step to restoring their lives,”” said Doug Long, president of Correspondent & Retail Lending for Prospect. “”These federally-backed loan programs provide low down payments to pay for repairs and renovations, or to purchase a new residence.””The programs, FHA 203(h) and FHA 203(k), can often provide financing to make up for expenses beyond those covered by insurance or disaster assistance. Through the FHA 203(h) program, disaster victims needing to relocate are able to buy a different home with no money down. Single-family homes and approved condos are eligible, but not vacation homes or investment properties. To qualify, the borrower’s previous residence must have been in the disaster area and must have been destroyed or damaged beyond the point of livability. For homeowners who need to repair or rebuild their home, the FHA 203(k) program provides up to 97.75 percent of the home’s expected post-repair value. If the current loan exceeded the value of the property prior to damage, the homeowner would need to find additional funds to close. Insurance settlement and grants from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) can reduce the needed loan amount.””These loan programs may be able to help pay for repairs or renovations not covered by insurance or other assistance,”” said Jim Ragan, renovation sales manager. “”They can allow victims of Sandy to rebuild their homes in the way that is right for their family, not just what’s covered by insurance.”” Headquartered in California, Prospect Mortgage is a top ten home purchase lender offering a full range of home loans, including FHA, VA, conventional, renovation, and more. in Data, Government, Origination, Secondary Market, Servicing Prospect Mortgage Offers Loan Programs for Sandy Victims November 16, 2012 471 Views center_img Share Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Company News FHA Investors Lenders & Servicers Processing Service Providers 2012-11-16 Tory Barringerlast_img read more
