The firm said it aims to become a financial conglomerate modelled after the likes of HSBC and Citigroup, with banking and investment income each contributing around a third of total profit each within 10 to 15 years. The move will put Ping An head to head with banks such as Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, which is looking into providing insurance.

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Deans says the changes represent the current competition for places within the Qantas Wallabies squad.“They’ve all earned their right to be a part of this side,” he said. “Off the back of his efforts off the bench, James [Slipper] has earned his opportunity to start and Rob gets his chance to start having got some more rugby under his belt [against Leicester and Munster] and he’ll benefit from the experience he received off the bench through the Tri-Nations.“Berrick has really worked hard at his game and deserves his chance to start. He has also made an impact off the bench for us and he gets his chance to start from the beginning, as does Luke [Burgess]. Will Genia is coming off a knock from last week and so he [Burgess] gets his chance to do some yards in place of him.“Lachie obviously comes in due to James O’Connor’s absence, but we expect him to thrive as he has done with each opportunity he’s been provided with in the past.”The Qantas Wallabies bench is highlighted by the return of hooker Tatafu Polota-Nau, who returns to the Qantas Wallabies’ Test side for the first since undergoing ankle surgery in June and can potentially feature in his first Test since defeating Wales in Cardiff at the end of last year. He played in 13 of our 14 Tests last year but will be featuring in his first for 2010.Reserve outside back Pat McCabe is in line to make his Test debut after two powerful performances against Leicester and Munster, having earned his selection on the tour as the only player to play every minute of every match for their side in this year’s Super 14 competition.Another player to capitalise on two excellent performances from the midweek fixtures is flanker Matt Hodgson, who is in line to add to his four Test caps after being called into the Qantas Wallabies 22-man squad. If required, it would be Hodgson’s first Test cap since Australia’s match against New Zealand in Christchurch in August.The changes within the starting line-up has resulted in a revamped run-on reserves list with Benn Robinson, Mark Chisholm, Genia and Giteau reverting to the bench after starting against England at Twickenham last weekend.Qantas Wallabies v ItalySaturday, 20 November, 2010Stadio Artemio Franchi, FlorenceTime: 3pm (local)/1am (AEDT) (Sunday, 21 November)Referee: Christophe Berdos (Fra) Outside centre Adam Ashley-Cooper will make his 50th Test appearance when he takes to Florence’s Stadio Artemio Franchi for the Qantas Wallabies’ Test match against Italy on Saturday. Ashley-Cooper will become the 35th Australian player to reach 50 Tests and the fifth to do so in 2010. The Brumbies utility back follows in the footsteps of teammates Rocky Elsom (v Fiji in Canberra), Mark Chisholm (v England in Sydney), and Stephen Moore and Drew Mitchell (v South Africa in Bloemfontein) who have also registered their half centuries this year.Ashley-Cooper will start in a Qantas Wallabies side featuring five changes to their starting XV following last weekend’s 35-18 loss to England at Twickenham.The Australian backline has received the bulk of the modifications, featuring three of the side’s changes. After starting from the bench in the Qantas Wallabies’ past three Tests, Lachie Turner, who scored his maiden Test try against the Azzurri in the corresponding match two years ago, has been promoted to the run-on side following winger James O’Connor’s return to Australia on compassionate grounds. Saturday will be the 13th Test of Turner’s career but just his second this year after winning the team’s internal man-of-the-match award when deputising for an injured Drew Mitchell in his only other outing against New Zealand in Sydney.O’Connor will re-join the side in Paris on Sunday.Berrick Barnes, who captained the Qantas Wallabies in both midweek tour matches against Leicester and Munster, will start a Test for the first time since the Qantas Wallabies’ 49-28 loss to the All Blacks in Melbourne in July. The Australian inside centre plays his ninth Test of the year but just his third start, and the third of his career partnering flyhalf Quade Cooper. The other two occurred last year against Italy in Melbourne (when Barnes started at flyhalf and Cooper at inside centre) and earlier this year in Perth against England after Matt Giteau was forced out at the side’s Captain’s Run with Barnes fulfilling the role in the Qantas Wallabies’ ‘12’ jersey.Luke Burgess has been selected at scrumhalf replacing Will Genia, who will take up his place on the reserves list after recovering from rib damage sustained against England last weekend. Burgess gets his first start since the side’s win over Ireland in Brisbane in June where he scored his maiden Test try.Changes to the Qantas Wallabies’ forward pack will see the Queensland Reds pairing of loosehead prop James Slipper and lock Rob Simmons make their run-on debuts for the Australian side. Slipper, a former Australian Under 20 Player of the Year, receives his call-up to the starting front row after 12 caps off the bench, in what will be just the second starting appearance of his professional carerer – the first being for the Reds in their final Super 14 match of the season against the Highlanders. Slipper has featured in each of the Qantas Wallabies’ past 12 Tests since having made his debut against England in Perth, with captain Rocky Elsom, David Pocock and Dean Mumm the only other forwards who have appeared consecutively in each of those games. Simmons, who made his Test debut in the Qantas Wallabies’ win over South Africa in Brisbane this year, earns a start in his fifth Test and will pack down alongside Nathan Sharpe.Elsom, who will continue his back row partnership with David Pocock and Ben McCalman for a sixth consecutive Test, will lead the Qantas Wallabies for the 19th time. This equals Andrew Slack as the fifth most capped Australian leader behind George Gregan, John Eales, Nick Farr-Jones and Stirling Mortlock.Deans says Ashley-Cooper’s milestone is a tremendous accomplishment.“It’s outstanding,” he said. “To get one Test is a great but to get to 50 is an outstanding achievement in anyone’s book.“The great thing about Adam is that he’s played each of those as if they were his first.” 15.

Rex Reyes, general secretary of the National Council of Churches in the Philippines.“We join the efforts of all civic organizations in providing the necessary remedies to ease their pain and we invite you to share what you have that others may live,” he added.Reyes made the appeal on 9 February after he met with local church leaders in Cebu (a major city in central Philippines) to assess the impact of the Feb. 6 quake, which, local government officials admit, caught residents totally unprepared.“The affected families are in need of food, sleeping paraphernalia, bottled water and medicines,” said Reyes.Worst hit by the quake was the island of Negros Oriental in central Philippines, where more than 14,000 families were affected. Many areas have become isolated because of quake-triggered landslides. Ten major bridges collapsed and three main roads were closed, said government reports.A nursing mother told national television on Feb. 9 that food has become so scarce that they she would be lucky if she could find food like a banana to feed her family.Many water systems were damaged so survivors need potable water, Fr. Edwin Laude of the Catholic diocese of San Carlos told CBCP News, the publication of the Catholic Bishops Conference. The price of gasoline also doubled, he said.Despite being victims themselves, local church leaders and parishioners of the United Church of Christ in the Philippines and the Philippine Independent Church have mobilized to help assess the quake’s damage, solicit outside help and comfort the distressed, said Reyes. (PIC is a full-communion partner to the U.S.-based Episcopal Church.)Undamaged church buildings of Roman Catholic, Protestant and evangelical churches also have served as refuge for many of those left homeless, reports said. Caritas-Philippines and World Vision were among aid organizations that immediately responded.

SHARE Brazil Soybean Exports Expected to Pass U.S. By Hoosier Ag Today – Jun 26, 2018 A forecast by the Department of Agriculture shows an increase in production could drive Brazil to pass the U.S. in soybean exports. Brazil is already the leading global producers of soybeans, and the second-largest exporter of the crop. USDA says Brazil’s soybean output is currently forecasted to exceed that of the United States by the 2018/19 marketing year. The milestone would represent a 22 percent increase in production over the last three years for Brazil. Almost all the increased production has made its way to the export market, according to USDA, which has risen 34 percent over the same time.In addition to significant growth in sales to China, Iran and Russia, domestic conditions in 2018 have also driven up exports. In May, Brazil’s soybean shipments reached a record high, despite a trucker strike in the nation and stalled deliveries to ports.

Inflammation and swelling in the knee would be treated with ice and electrical stimulation.Thomas will begin his physical therapy on Nov. 2 and will be finished by Dec. 2. He will be working on regaining his cutting and speed beginning in three weeks.Paschal’s final regular season game is on Nov. 5 against Arlington High School. The team has not won a game since losing Thomas, currently with a record of 3-5.It is likely Thomas will wear a knee brace designed to protect the MCL when he returns to the field and while it will slightly alter how he plays, Urbanek said the reward outweighs the cost.“[The ligament] will tighten up somewhat but it won’t be as strong as it was before,” Urbanek said. “[The brace] is going to protect the knee and deflect any blows from the outside.”While Thomas can protect himself physically from being harmed again, it is the psychological effect he will also have to worry about. Urbanek has seen the mental toll knee injuries inflict on athletes time and time again.“It can be devastating to athletes that put so much into their sport,” Urbanek said. “They’re having to rehab instead practicing or working out with their teammates.”Thomas said he felt this devastation in the initial days following his injury.“You can’t help but cry, it’s just something that happens,” Thomas said.Urbanek said the key to a successful rehab from any knee injury, including an MCL tear, is work ethic.“You get out of it what you put into it,” Urbanek said. “The harder they work, the sooner they can be ready.”Thomas has already adopted this mindset. Thomas said he has been working since the injury to strengthen everything around his knee.“This is a crucial point…I want to come stronger than I was before, stronger than I was before, jump higher than I could before,” Thomas said. “I just want to come back better than ever.”Thomas said he has been in contact with TCU, where he has committed to play next year. He said several coaches, including co-offensive coordinator Doug Meacham, have told him to stay positive and focus on his recovery.TCU is still offering Thomas a scholarship.

Photo Courtesy of http://kneeortho.orgWhile Thomas’ injury is a severe one, he was told it was the best of what could have been a much worse situation. “[The doctors] told me if I was going to hurt something that would be the thing to hurt because it’s the only thing that can heal on it’s own,” Thomas said. “It’s pretty much based on me and based on how I heal.”According to a study conducted by the University of Colorado Denver during the 2012-2013 school year, MCL injuries are the most common among high school athletes. However, due to its severity, the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries garner more attention from the public than Thomas’ more common MCL injury. Urbanek attributed the severity of ACL injuries to its infamy.“With an season-ending injury such as the ACL, you’re talking about surgery, rehab, that goes six to eight months, sometimes a year,” Urbanek said. “That can take away their whole season.”This is evident in professional and college sports as well. While MCL injuries are more common, the recovery time is far shorter than that of an ACL.

Almost all buildings constructed before 2000 are likely to have some asbestos containing material.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Intact and undisturbed asbestos materials do not pose a health risk. However, they can become a concern if they are damaged, deteriorate over time or are otherwise disturbed.Limerick City and County Council has decided to remove the asbestos material and is liaising with the HSE in relation to the issue.The first stage of the process is air testing, followed by a temporary sealing off of the area, removal of the asbestos material and a follow-up air test.Letters explaining the situation, along with a HSE information leaflet, have been hand delivered to the residents in Vale Avenue, Carew Park.The letter outlines the steps Limerick City and County Council are taking in order to remove the asbestos, while officials from the local authority will be present to further explain the process.Specialist consultants and accredited contractors, who are experienced in the removal of asbestos, have been engaged to oversee and complete the necessary removal activities.See more news here Hot Press award for Dolan’s Warehouse, Limerick Linkedin WhatsApp Anti social behaviour trapping residents in their homes Watch: Sheil confident Pike can compete on all fronts in 2018/2019 RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Stray horses raise injury concerns in Limerick’s Carew Park

For the year, first-time buyers made up 30 percent of homebuyers, up 1 percentage point from 2014 and 2013.”First-time buyers were for the most part held back once again in 2015 by rising rents and home prices, competition from vacation and investment buyers and supply shortages,” said Lawrence Yun, NAR Chief Economist. “While these headwinds show little signs of abating, the cumulative effect of strong job growth in recent years and young renters’ overwhelming interest to own a home should lead to a modest uptick in first-time buyer activity in 2016.”The Bureau found that homeownership was highest among those 65 years and older at 79.3 percent int he fourth quarter of 2015, down slightly 79.5 percent in the previous quarter. However, the only age group to increase their homeownership rate was the 35 to 44-year olds, from 58.8 percent in the fourth quarter of last year to 59.3 percent in the fourth quarter of 2015.”Jobs are being created at a rapid pace, and we expect earnings growth will finally start to rise this year.”Matthew Pointon, Capital Economics”Today’s Census Homeownership and Vacancy Survey release also provides optimism that the homeownership rate may have hit bottom in 2015,” said Ralph B. McLaughlin, Chief Economist at Trulia. “Many Gen Xers lost their homes during the recession, so this is a positive sign that we may be seeing boomerang buyers coming back into housing market. However, the increase was not statistically significant from a year ago.”Capital Economics Property Economist Matthew Pointon added, “That gradual rise in the homeownership rate should continue over the next few years. On the demand side, there are large numbers of young adults who are currently living with their parents. And many of them would like to form their own household. The financial crisis locked them out of homeownership, as they lost their jobs and/or banks refused to provide them with a mortgage. But both factors are now steadily improving. Jobs are being created at a rapid pace, and we expect earnings growth will finally start to rise this year. As well as allowing more households to access homeownership, that will also cut down on mortgage delinquencies and keep more families in their homes.”The Bureau reported that the homeownership rates were highest in the Midwest at 68.1 percent in the fourth quarter, and lowest in the West at 59.0 percent. All regions, except the West experienced a year-over-year decline in homeownership.Rental vacancy rates in the fourth quarter were 7.0 percent in the fourth quarter, unchanged from last year and down 0.3 percent from the previous quarter. The homeowner vacancy rate was 1.9 percent for the quarter, also unchanged from last year and last quarter.”An improving labor market and easing credit conditions are finally leading to a gradual rise in the homeownership rate. But the rental vacancy rate has yet to rise, and that will put upwards pressure on rents over the coming months,” Pointon stated.Click here to view the full report.
