RBS said it paid 323 critical staff known as “code staff” a total of £375m in 2010 – an average of £1.1m each. Analysis revealed that Ellen Alemany, who runs RBS’ US operations, was paid £5.95m plus pension.John Hourican, chief executive of RBS’ global banking and markets division, was awarded a £5.93m salary and benefits package. Others were Nathan Bostock, who heads RBS’ restructuring and risk, on £3.3m; head of retail Brian Hartzer, on £3.2m and corporate division chief Chris Sullivan on £2.6m.RBS stands out from other British banks, such as Barclays and HSBC, where senior executives in the investment banking businesses, tend to earn more than the chief executive.Increased transparency around the pay of senior banking executives was one of the more contentious concessions made by the banks in the Merlin agreement with the government. last_img read more

Kanabo (LSE: KNB) shares have been getting a lot of attention. Last week the firm listed on the London Stock Exchange through an initial public offering (IPO). Since then, the stock has created a lot of buzz in the investment community.Normally I don’t consider IPOs, but this one is interesting. I’m not buying the shares for now, yet the stock is certainly on my radar. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…What’s the story behind Kanabo shares?In a nutshell, Kanabo is an Israeli medical cannabis company. It listed on the UK stock market as part of a reverse takeover of Spinnaker Opportunities.Kanabo’s unique selling point is that it has created VapePod, which is a medical grade vaporiser. The company’s goal is to sell this device, along with its cannabis cartridges, to consumers and promote the medicinal benefits of the drug. According to Kanabo, it’s selling initial products in Europe already, and is ready to scale up to meet market demands and projected sales and revenues.At present, the company is also generating revenue by selling THC-free cannabidiol or CBD products to consumers. The short-term strategy is to sell these retail products while building out the Kanabo brand.What’s all the hype about?I’m bullish about the long-term prospects that legalised cannabis will have for medical use. Medical cannabis is being used to treat mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression. It’s also being used to treat insomnia and other sleep disorders.Last year, the UK’s financial regulator, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) gave the green light to medical cannabis companies to list in London. Kanabo’s IPO comes amid a growing demand for the drug.MGC Pharmaceuticals, another medical cannabis company IPO’d on the London stock market recently. But I reckon the IPO most investors are waiting for is Cellular Goods, which is expected to trade under the CBX symbol on February 26. This is London’s first listed ‘pureplay’ consumer CBD company. Even football star David Beckham has backed the company through his DB ventures firm.Kanabo shares: would I buy?While I’m bullish on medical cannabis, I’ll hold fire on buying Kanabo shares. There’s a lot of hype around the sector and the company. I reckon this buzz is over-inflating the share price.Some investors are even calling Kanabo the ‘cannabis Nespresso’. I think this is overkill. For now I’ll monitor the stock and wait for the euphoria to die down.The risksThere are risks involved with Kanabo shares. Firstly, I expect there to be a lot of competition in the sector. I think its VapePod product could take some time to bear fruit. Until then it’s relying on the sales of its retail CBD products. For now, I don’t think Kanabo has a proven edge over its competitors.Let’s be frank, the company is still very small and loss-making. There’s a chance it may not be able to commercialise its medical cannabis products too. It’s also incurring research and development costs, which I’d expect to continue to impact its profitability.I want to see the company deliver trading updates and results as a public company. That way, I have more information to make an informed investment decision on. So for now, I’ll sit on the fence and monitor the share price. See all posts by Nadia Yaqublast_img read more

Getz es la vicepresidente ejecutiva y principal asesora legal de la empresa. Ella también presta servicios como vicecanciller de la Diócesis de San Diego.Getz es parte de una familia de cinco hermanos y es hija y hermana de sacerdotes episcopales. “Eso me ha dado una visión denominacional de nuestra familia en Cristo”, dijo ella en su anuncio.“El único ‘campo’ al que estoy afiliada es Camp Stevens, el campamento de nuestra diócesis que compartimos con Los Ángeles”, dijo Getz. “Tomo mis decisiones luego de devota consideración y no basada en una agenda. Desde luego no estoy implicando la conducta de nadie más, sólo diciendo ‘ésta soy yo’”.Getz cumplió 25 años de casada con Ron Enos el 27 de junio.Bonnie Anderson, la presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, ha dicho que no le va a pedir a esta reunión de la Convención General que la elija para un tercer y último período como presidente.

New Data Shows Big Oil’s Anti-E15 Test Lacks Real World Credibility

first_imgThe CRC test of eight vehicles (specifically selected for their presumed sensitivity to this testing protocol) found that three of the vehicles (37.5 percent) exceeded an arbitrary cylinder leakdown parameter while using E15.  Meanwhile, CRC tested only those three cars on clear gasoline, and one of those three vehicles (33 percent) also exceeded the arbitrary CRC criteria.  Had CRC tested the other five cars on clear gasoline they may have found additional vehicles that exceeded their arbitrary testing parameter. “To determine whether the arbitrary CRC testing parameter had real world implications, the IRFA did something that CRC refused to do,” stated IRFA Executive Director Monte Shaw.  “IRFA tested eight random vehicles on E10, a fuel utilized in over 95 percent of vehicles today.  After 35 years and trillions of miles, we know that E10 works in the real world.  To create the E10 baseline, IRFA tested cars that are driven every day – to work, to school, on summer vacations – with no performance issues.  If any of these vehicles exceeded the CRC criteria it would prove the arbitrary testing threshold cannot be used to predict real world operability. Three of the eight vehicles tested by IRFA did exceed the arbitrary testing threshold.  In fact, we just drove one of those three vehicles further than 1,000 miles.  If Big Oil were telling the truth then this vehicle would not have hauled us from Des Moines to DC – yet here it is.  You just can’t take Big Oil’s attacks seriously.” The Iowa Renewable Fuels Association (IRFA) today released new testing data from vehicles driving in the real world that demonstrates Big Oil’s earlier Coordinating Research Council (CRC) testing on E15 has no real world implications.  To highlight the point, IRFA staff drove a vehicle that exceeded Big Oil’s arbitrary testing threshold for cylinder leakdown from Iowa to Washington, D.C.  Members of Congress, staff and media were invited to test drive the vehicle during an event on Capitol Hill. IRFA secured eight random “daily use” vehicles in Iowa that were driven on E10.  They were tested for cylinder leakdown by mechanics using the same procedure as the CRC used.  Of the eight vehicles tested by IRFA, three (37.5 percent) exceeded the arbitrary CRC testing parameter.  The owners of those three vehicles were quite surprised to learn they had been driving around a vehicle that Big Oil says should leave them stranded on the road. Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Oct 3, 2013 Facebook Twitter SHAREcenter_img Home Energy New Data Shows Big Oil’s Anti-E15 Test Lacks Real World Credibility New Data Shows Big Oil’s Anti-E15 Test Lacks Real World Credibility “Big Oil’s E15 testing lacks credibility at every level,” added Shaw.  “It lacks credibility on their vehicle selection.  It lacks credibility on their testing parameters.  It lacks creditability on real world implications.  And most importantly, Big Oil lacks credibility on how they used their biased results in an attempt to scare the public and policy makers regarding the use of E15.” Previous articleGrowers Report on First Experiences with the Enlist™ Weed Control SystemNext articleIndiana Grain On the Fast Track to Asia Gary Truitt SHARE Big Oil has spent months touting the results of a biased CRC test on vehicles utilizing E15, a 15 percent ethanol blend, and clear gasoline (no ethanol).  The CRC test was criticized by many experts for many reasons – notably for its arbitrary testing criteria and for its failure to test vehicles on E10.  Since 240 million vehicles routinely operate on E10 without performance issues in the real world, if vehicles running on E10 were also found to exceed the arbitrary testing threshold it would prove that CRC’s E15 testing program was fatally flawed.last_img read more
