A radical cost-out programme is required to support the transformation.”The presentation set out a scheme to “radically reduce costs and our spend baseline by the end of the financial year – a 20 per cent minimum target reduction per key supplier”.Cost-cutting plans presented by Royal Mail included looking at payment terms to suppliers, the sale of some assets and the sale and leaseback of part of its property portfolio.Royal Mail last week revealed half-year group profits had fallen to £52m, down from £184m last year, with the letter business losing £66m.The cost-cutting comes as Royal Mail faces a potential cash crisis, caused in part by the £800m a year the company pays into its pension plan, which has a £10bn deficit.One anonymous supplier told a Sunday newspaper they were “furious” following the demand for tough cuts. Royal Mail would not confirm the proposals, though told City A.M. last night: “Royal Mail is striving to get the best value for money throughout the business and we are asking our suppliers for their ideas and proposals on how we might achieve this — but we are absolutely not imposing a blanket cut on suppliers’ bills.”Government outsourcer Serco last week withdrew a letter asking for a 2.5 per cent cash rebate from suppliers after a political backlash. last_img read more

Ireland passes record austerity budget

first_img Ireland passes record austerity budget alison.lock Share THE IRISH government has narrowly passed the harshest budget ever proposed, to make the necessary savings for it to receive EU and IMF rescue funds. It has set out austerity measures for 2011 that impose €6bn (£5bn) of spending cuts and tax rises on the country, including cuts to child benefit and public sector pensions.But the Budget is still relying on growth forecasts that several experts including the European Commission consider overly optimistic.The Parliament passed the first in a series of votes on the budget on Tuesday evening, suggesting that enough of the budget is likely to pass to release bailout funds. The budget’s success had looked in doubt when independent politicians, on whom the government depends for support, said they might vote against it.If the initial resolutions pass this week, the IMF could seek approval from its board for its Irish loan as soon as Friday.Opposition parties slammed the government for mismanaging the economy and sacrificing Irish sovereignty.“This budget is the budget of a puppet government who are doing what they have been told to do by the IMF, the EU Commission and the European Central Bank,” said Michael Noonan, finance spokesman for the centre-right Fine Gael party.The 2011 budget is the toughest in a four-year austerity plan that aims to save €15bn – nearly 10 per cent of annual economic output – to bring the worst deficit in the Eurozone back within EU limits by 2014. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodayBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen HeraldAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’Definition Tags: NULLcenter_img whatsapp whatsapp Show Comments ▼ More From Our Partners A ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.com Tuesday 7 December 2010 4:55 pmlast_img read more

Recovering credit conditions and access to finance to fund major acquisitions is giving firms the confidence to act, according to a study by consultancy firm Ernst & Young.More than 50 per cent of senior executives who responded to the survey said they believed that financing would be available to fund major acquisitions within the short term, up ten per cent on the last study completed in October last year. More than 1,000 senior executives worldwide, including over 60 in the UK, took part in the survey.Transaction adviser for Ernst &?Young, Jon Hughes, said: “These figures indicate that the number of organisations ready to conduct deals, when the right target is identified, is strong.” Share Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Tags: NULL Wednesday 13 April 2011 8:36 pm KCS-content last_img read more

first_img Misunderstanding????? Really???? How did that happen??? Please enter your name here Updating Breaking News from last nightFrom The Orange County Sheriff’s OfficeYesterday, at 4:52 pm, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office responded to 1211 E Semoran Blvd (Orange County Library) in reference to a suspicious person.

WillAid set for November

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis WillAid set for November Indeed, given that most charitable Wills include more than one charitable beneficiary, it could be in all charities’ interests to promote this campaign. The chances are that some of your supporters will still not have made a Will: a recent survey for WillAid of more than 19,000 people between 25 and 64 years old found that 75% of men and women under 44 do not have an up-to date Will. This year the campaign organisers hope to recruit 1,800 solicitors and 5,500 Will makers.

Although it’s not open to other charities, it’s a valuable initiative and worth supporting if you haven’t yet made a Will.

Caisson Biotech, LLC and Heparinex, LLC Announce Positive Examination Report of European Patent and…

first_img Twitter WhatsApp Facebook By Digital AIM Web Support – February 23, 2021 Caisson Biotech, LLC and Heparinex, LLC Announce Positive Examination Report of European Patent and the Discovery of a New Class of Sugar Polymers TAGS  AUSTIN, Texas and OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla., Feb. 23, 2021 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Caisson Biotech and parent company Heparinex are pleased to announce that they have received a positive examination report from the European Patent Office for a patent covering the chemoenzymatic production of heparosan utilized in the HEPtune® drug delivery platform. Once certified, the new patent family will increase patent coverage across Europe, adding to the U.S. holdings. The HEPtune platform, which utilizes heparosan, a naturally occurring polysaccharide, has been validated as a novel half-life extension and drug delivery alternative to commonly used polyethylene glycol (PEG). Unlike PEG, heparosan is naturally found in humans, is completely biodegradable, and will not trigger anaphylactic shock or anti-drug antibodies. The HEPtune platform has been applied to numerous drug classes including biologics, and small molecules via nanocarriers, including liposomes. In addition to positive news received by the EPO, Heparinex is excited to announce that it has created a new class of sugar polymers, sulfated hepbiuronic acid (sHBA) that mimic some, but not all, of the desirable activities of heparin, a drug employed to treat many diseases including the fight against severe COVID-19 and influenza. These novel patent-pending drug candidates can quell the initiation of inflammation, but do not inhibit blood coagulation, thus can be used to protect organs such as the lungs, heart, and kidneys that are often damaged by the body’s own defenses during disease without the risk of bleeding. The sHBA should be a useful addition to the arsenal of drugs currently dispensed to treat hyper-inflammation spawned by infectious, cardiovascular, and auto-immune diseases. Heparosan conjugation was developed by Presidential Professor Dr. Paul DeAngelis at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center (OUHSC) and includes a robust U.S. and international patent portfolio. “Our goal is to decipher and harness the natural ‘sugar codes’ in the body in more selective, customized fashion to target diseases and reduce side effects. We are excited by the possibilities for better medicines”, said DeAngelis. He was named as one of the most influential researchers in the world according to a study led by an investigator at Stanford University and published in PLOS Biology. About Caisson Biotech, LLC Caisson Biotech, LLC is a collaboration driven biotechnology company specializing in the development of heparosan polymers to improve therapeutic drug delivery and performance. Caisson’s HEPtune® technology was invented by Chief Scientist and University of Oklahoma Professor Dr. Paul DeAngelis, a world renowned glycobiology and enzyme specialist.
