first_imgThe DWP said that it recognised “the additional challenges and risks” a flat fee structure can present, but that its view was not to ban flat fee structures outright but to consider incorporating new conditions intended to limit their application in circumstances where scheme members would lose out.More specifically, it said it was considering measures that would set a minimum pot size before a flat fee could be charged.In a blog post, Henry Tapper, former director at First Actuarial and now looking after his own company, Age Wage, said the DWP’s suggestion with respect to flat fee charging was “the one new idea” in DWP’s consultation.“This will be painful,” he wrote. “Small pots are already causing a lot of pain to master trusts and they are moving to combination charges out of financial necessity.”Transaction costs, CTI take-upAs part of its “call for evidence” the DWP is also is seeking industry views on including transaction costs within the 0.75bps charge cap.It said it wanted to “assess the effectiveness of any measures designed to improve disclosure of transaction costs before deciding whether a cap on these costs would be appropriate, and if so, at which level it should be set”.The DWP is also seeking input on options to assess and widen take-up of the standardised cost disclosure templates developed by the industry Cost Transparency Initiative (CTI).Questions it is asking include whether legislative information is required to support adoption of the CTI templates, and how easy it is to request cost information from asset managers.There is no industry-wide data on the use of the CTI templates, although the CTI has reported strong take-up.The DWP’s consultation can be found here. It is open until 20 August. The DWP said it aimed to bring forward proposals in response to the consultation later this year.To read the digital edition of IPE’s latest magazine click here. The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has suggested imposing new conditions on the use of flat fees in default arrangements in defined contribution (DC) auto-enrolment schemes.It is seeking industry views on this as part of a wider consultation on the charge cap for default DC auto-enrolment arrangements and standardised cost disclosure.A flat annual fee can be combined with a percentage of funds under management for one of two permissible combination charging structures for default funds in DC auto-enrolment arrangements.While seen as providing the greatest benefit to members with the largest funds, flat fees have been criticised for having a regressive effect on small pension pots.last_img read more

Kostas Tsimikas jinked forward and let fly from 20 yards, forcing Leno into an acrobatic save away to his left.Arsenal finally stirred into life as the game entered the final 15 minutes, Pepe collecting Granit Xhaka’s Crossfield pass to unleash a left-foot shot Jose Sa did well to save. From the loose ball, Shkodran Mustafi found Lacazette but he couldn’t make enough contact with a header inside the six-yard box.last_img read more

first_imgUnited States Air Force Second Lieutenant Dalon Helm will be back in an IMCA Modified over the Memorial Day Weekend. He’s currently stationed in Texas and flying in the Specialized Undergraduate Pilot Training program. (Photo by Ben Pena)SHERRARD, Ill. – Dalon Helm brings a unique perspective on speed to the IMCA Modified division.Second Lieutenant Helm, a Sherrard, Ill., native and graduate of the United States Air Force Academy is stationed at Laughlin Air Force Base in Del Rio, Texas.Now in the Specialized Undergraduate Pilot Training program, he’s flying a T-6A Texan turbo-prop with a top speed of around 360 miles an hour.He’ll be home over the Memorial Day Weekend and hopes to race with his father Dan at Davenport Speedway and Quad City Speedway, two of the tracks he competed at during his 2016 rookie season.“I had 10 flights in a small plane before I raced a Modified,” said Helm. “I’m going a lot faster now in a T-6 but it’s hard to tell the difference because of the perspective. Having tires on the ground feels faster than when you’re in an airplane 15,000 feet off the ground.”Helm will next train in a T38 Talon, a course that leads to becoming a fighter or bomber pilot, or a T-1 Jayhawk, which leads to flying an airlift or tanker plane.The Talon tops out at around 860 miles an hour, the Jayhawk 530 mph. Regardless of where his Air Force career course takes him, Helm wants to keep going fast on dirt.“It’s a long way to anywhere from where I’m stationed but I’ve been able to make the three hour trip to Abilene to watch the races a couple times,” he said. “I’m definitely looking at where bases are located and where the tracks are located. Racing is definitely something I want to continue. Once you start you get hooked.”Admittedly late to the sport, Helm decided last summer would be the perfect time to start. And with the number of sanctioned tracks so close to home, the IMCA Modified would be the perfect division to start in.“My dad and grandpa Bob had both raced around the Midwest and racing was something I had wanted to do when I was a kid,” he said. “I was at the academy one night thinking about what I wanted to do in the 60 days I had after graduation before reporting to my next duty station. I decided I wanted to race.”After talking that idea over with his father, Helm went online and found a 2014 Forward Chassis. His grandfather had parts stored away in the garage that he could use and Helm was ready to start his own racing career.In less than a month and a half, Helm logged 17 starts at Davenport, Maquoketa Speedway, Quad City and 34 Raceway.His best showing came on his 15th night out, with a sixth place finish at East Moline.“My dad will have the car ready when I get back at the end of the month,” Helm said. “We had a blast racing last summer. It was the most fun thing I’ve ever done and I learned a lot.”last_img read more

Although she spent quite a bit of her early years back and forth at Riley’s Children’s Hospital, she never let her limitations slow her down. She was the official babysitter for many of her nieces and nephews.  Loretta had a feisty personality and enjoyed rough housing with them.  Able to get them into a headlock, they teased that she had a “mean right hook.”  She treasured time with family.  As her parents aged, she took care of them as well as the chores around the house.  Loretta was very devout, attending church and praying the rosary daily.  Eventually her health prevented her from going to church but, she never missed it on T.V.  Bingo and playing cards were favorite pastimes while sitting on a swing enjoying an occasional glass of wine or a margarita was relaxing.Loreteta is survived by her sister Rosemary Cook of Batesville, brother Louis Kinker of Enochsburg and numerous nieces and nephews who were a significant part of her life.  In addition to her parents, she is also preceded in death by sisters Julia Pumphrey, Margaret Mollaun, Leona Moeller, Virginia Heck and brother Omer Kinker.Visitation is Saturday, January 25th, from 9 – 10:30 a.m. at St. Catherine of Sienna Church at Enochsburg.  Funeral services follow at 11 a.m. with Rev.

first_imgWhite man badly beaten by BLM protesters in Portland(Courtesy: The man lays unconscious on a Portland streetKalen D’Almeida / Scriberr News)A series of clips on social media shows the victim being surrounded in his white truck at 10.30 p.m. Sunday as others attacked his wife.  The victim allegedly almost ran over some BLM members trying to save his wife who was punched and even tackled to the ground during the violence.“He didn’t do nothing!” someone could be heard calling as others punched the driver as he sat in his truck, which was also repeatedly kicked.The unidentified driver attempted to flee with the mob chasing him and crashed into a light pole, according to the clips.He was dragged from the truck and repeatedly punched as his wife was pleading with his attackers to stop, pointing out that her husband was bleeding, the videos show.“I was trying to get out the way,” he insisted after crashing his truck, as several in the BLM group punched him in the face and repeatedly called the white driver the N-word.”The victim was then shown bleeding from a large wound in the back of his head as he appeared unconscious throughout another almost two-and-a-half minute clip. His wife was shown sobbing nearby as the mob held her back and appeared to rifle through his truck.  His wife pleading with them not to steal from her husband too. “That’s all he has!” she yelled.Police in riot gear had to assist ambulance crews helping him as they were confronted by “a hostile crowd,” Portland Police said in a release.The victim was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries, police said. “The incident is under investigation and no arrests have been made,” the force said.All this violence came a day after Portland officials declared a riot as mobs once again brought violence in the name of George Floyd, as they have done nightly for almost two months.Two cops were hospitalized overnight Saturday after protestors hurled a 10-pound rock at them during the 79th night of clashes in the City of Roses, according to reports. Over the weekend in Portland, Black Lives Matter and Antifa militants allegedly forced a white man to crash his truck, and then punched and kicked him unconscious.  The assault was caught on video.last_img read more

No. 24 Syracuse (7-4-3, 1-3-2 Atlantic Coast) tied with No. 21 North Carolina State (8-4-3, 2-3-2) on Saturday night in Raleigh, North Carolina.“I thought our guys were terrific, SU head coach Ian McIntyre said. “I thought we did enough to get three points tonight. We didn’t take that chance to score that second goal tonight and we were punished later on.”Syracuse outshot NC State, 19 to 12, and led for the majority of the match. But a late goal by Brad Sweeney equalized the game with 24 seconds left. The strike came off a free kick, adding to SU’s inability to defend set-pieces in critical moments. Earlier this season, SU lost to Notre Dame on Sept. 7 after conceding three set-piece scores.Other than Sweeney’s goal, the Orange utilized physicality on the road. It recorded 19 fouls with Hugo Delhommelle earning SU’s lone yellow card.Sondre Norheim provided SU’s offense when he headed a ball off a Delhommelle corner kick in the fifth minute. The sophomore defender scored his third goal in his last two matchups, bringing his point total to eight. Delhommelle tallied his fourth assist of the season.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“(Norheim’s) scored a couple of very important goals,” McIntyre said. “This was a good one. To score on restarts you need a good service and that’s what we got from (Delhommelle).”SU outshot the Wolfpack eight to one in the opening half, but couldn’t create the separation it’s banked on in past games. Syracuse was on a five-game streak of scoring multiple goals which was capped off with a seven-goal outburst against St. Bonaventure on Oct. 16. Yet, NC State’s defense, which entered the contest allowing less than a goal a game, stymied the Orange forwards.The squads traded chances in the second half and neither team found twine before Sweeney executed on a free kick from 19-yards away.“It would’ve been very easy for our guys to feel sorry for ourselves and let that carry over into overtime,” McIntyre said. “I thought our guys bounced back.”Both goalies were called upon in overtime. NC State’s Leon Krapf recorded two of his six saves in the extra periods and Hendrik Hilpert stopped a shot by AJ Seals for his fifth and final save of the night.Syracuse senior Jan Breitenmoser had a chance to win the match with two seconds left but his strike sailed high, confirming the draw.The Orange’s unbeaten streak lengthened to six games with the decision. SU travels to Clemson (5-7-1, 0-6-0) on Tuesday, Oct. 23, in a makeup game that was rescheduled due to Hurricane Florence. Commentslast_img read more
