first_imgWednesday 5 January 2011 2:59 pm US companies tweak CEO pay packages ahead of shareholder scrutiny whatsapp alison.lock LARGE US companies are taking pains to show how compensation is linked to performance as they prepare to present lucrative executive pay packages to shareholders.Nearly half of US firms surveyed by consulting firm Towers Watson were adjusting their pay-setting process ahead of the spring votes required at least every three years under the Dodd-Frank financial reform law.The “say-on-pay” votes are non-binding and come after a strong rally in shares and two years of improved corporate earnings, perhaps blunting shareholder anger at packages that averaged $9.25m (£5.95m) for CEOs at S&P 500 companies in 2009. That is 263 times the average worker’s pay, according to AFL-CIO data.But advocates of the measure and some compensation experts say a number of pay packages are likely to be rejected by shareholders, putting pressure on boards to improve compensation practices for chief executives and other top officers.“There’s a very strong awareness in the boardroom that shareholders are going to be paying attention to pay for performance,” said Doug Friske, global leader of compensation at Towers Watson.Some companies had already allowed advisory votes on pay as part of their annual meetings, but the Dodd-Frank law that was enacted last year ensures wide use.Though many companies have already improved compensation practices, they are paying more attention to how they explain their pay policies and taking a second look at the link to performance, according to the survey by Towers Watson.Visa Inc , Johnson Controls and Monsanto Co, for example, have all said they ended or limited some tax gross-ups, which are reimbursements for taxes paid on perks or so-called golden parachutes.Visa also said it ended purely personal use of its corporate aircraft by top executives, a trend seen at many other large U.S. companies in recent years.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

The Avon Rubber (LSE: AVON) share price has been a ray of sunshine for UK share investors in what has been an otherwise dismal 2020. The business — which builds masks and body armour for militaries and security services across the world — is up 55% since last New Year’s Eve.A series of strong trading updates, contract wins, and the sale of its dairy operations all helped Avon soar.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…But demand for Avon’s shares has slipped considerably in December. Although it closed at all-time highs of £46.25 per share on 1 December, it’s currently changing hands around £32.60. And it collapsed 14% in Thursday trading following the release of fresh trading details.So what exactly has Avon Rubber said?Double troubleInvestor appetite for the defence giant’s fallen on the back of two disappointing sets of testing news. Firstly, Avon Rubber reported approval processes relating to two major contracts “have been delayed as a result of a failure encountered in First Article Testing.”The delays relate to US Defense Logistics Agency Enhanced Small Arms Protective Inserts and US Army Vital Torso Protection body plates.These approvals had been expected in the first half of this fiscal year (to September 2021). However, Avon now reckons first deliveries under these contracts won’t begin until the next financial year.In another whack to market sentiment, Avon Rubber said a protest had been lodged against its US Army Next Generation Integrated Head Protection System sole source contract. The FTSE 250 firm said that although the subsequent delay created by this protest is “unwelcome,” it “is not currently expected to have any material impact” on expectations for the current financial year.Avon Rubber’s forecasts to be downgradedThe remainder of Avon’s Thursday statement wasn’t quite as disappointing. The defence company said trading during the first quarter has been in line with expectations. It has experienced “good order intake” too, it said.Avon added that while the aforementioned contract issues will harm performance in fiscal 2021, it said it “remains confident” in hitting its medium-term targets “given the momentum we are seeing across the business.”The frantic selling of Avon’s shares began after the release of full-year results on 2 December. However, this fresh exodus was prompted by strong profit taking. Unsurprising after the UK share’s stratospheric share price gains since the beginning of the year.In fact, that statement for fiscal 2020 also showed a 9% improvement in adjusted pre-tax profits. It also highlighted a huge jump in its closing order book, and a 30% rise in the total dividend.City analysts had expected Avon Rubber’s annual earnings to soar by around two-thirds in this fiscal year before Thursday’s update. A 64% increase had been anticipated, leaving the company trading on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of around 25 times. Though those forecasts are in line for noticeable downgrades following today’s unfortunate release.

Opening the garage door to its fullest extent creates a sense of unity between the street and the interior, giving rise to a sort of intermediate zone.

High skylights installed along the walls and on the ceiling make use of the sloping roof, which emerged as a result of the setback limit imposed by the city. A panoramic view of the sky and downtown area is visible from these glass panels, which also allow ample sunlight into the interior. The living room, which features built-in furniture covered in tatami mats, allows the residents to enjoy sitting on the floor, as if they were in a little treehouse. The balcony next to the kitchen will soon be filled with plants, allowing them to enjoy cooking and preparing food in an open, relaxed environment surrounded by greenery. The rooftop garden, which can be accessed through a rooftop structure, is a genuine urban oasis. This small residence, whose interior brims with a sense of openness that cannot be imagined from the relatively closed facade and its few visible openings, is distinctive for its myriad faces and spatial configurations that can be enjoyed as one moves up and down the different levels.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow less’The Forest’ Detroit Riverfront Competition 1st Prize Winning Entry / Hyuntek Yoon, …ArticlesGreen Walking Mall Competition Entry / UnikaArticles Share Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/310135/grow-apollo-architects-associates Clipboard Save this picture!© Masao Nishikawa+ 24 Share Japan “COPY” CopyHouses•Shinjuku, Japan “COPY” Architects: APOLLO Architects & Associates Area Area of this architecture project Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/310135/grow-apollo-architects-associates Clipboard Grow / APOLLO Architects & Associates CopyAbout this officeAPOLLO Architects & AssociatesOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasShinjukuWoodHouses3D ModelingJapanPublished on December 26, 2012Cite: “Grow / APOLLO Architects & Associates” 26 Dec 2012.

first_imgNew York saw one of the worldwide protests over killings in Mexico — on the same day as President Obama’s announcement on immigration.WW photo: Anne PrudenPhiladelphia, Nov. 20.WW photo: Joseph PiettePresident Barack Obama issued a long-awaited Executive Order on immigration policy on Nov. 20. That same day hundreds of thousands of people in Mexico took part in mass marches in solidarity with the 43 missing students from Ayotzinapa in the state of Guerrero.The two events — one in Washington, the other across the border — are very much related.The Obama administration has been completely silent about the Mexican crisis since Sept. 26 when the 43 students were reported missing.  Despite the cry of the parents and the entire nation for an explanation of where they are, their bodies have not been found, nor is there a complete explanation of what happened.Reports that the students were found in a mass grave proved false. An independent investigation showed that the bodies were not of the 43.  Since then, many mass graves have been found in Guerrero.Students in Mexico have walked off campuses and burned buildings. Unions and communities have marched and marched day after day.On Nov. 20, tens of thousands missed work or school throughout the country. Many call these events the start of the new Mexican Revolution.Surely this momentous development in Mexico must have been in the back of the minds of the political operators in Washington “just a bit” as they planned the immigration announcement. It is too much of a coincidence that an Executive Order on immigration was issued on the same day that Mexico was practically carrying out a general strike.Bittersweet victoryAcross the United States, immigrant groups and their advocates gathered together to watch Obama’s news conference that Nov. 20 night, with assemblies as large as 800 people held in union halls and community centers in most cities.This indicated the burning desire and intense longing of undocumented workers for some relief. Every day millions of workers live in absolute terror of deportation. The children of the undocumented go to school each day not knowing if their parents will be home when they return. Tens of thousands of workers cannot report wage theft or abuse at work places for fear of deportation.So the long awaited announcement that something positive may happen in their lives was met with extreme anxiety. And hope, lots of hope.Since 2006, migrants and their advocates have marched, rallied, lobbied and carried out countless actions and tactics. The youth, especially the Dreamers, have carried out militant demonstrations, including voluntarily going into detention centers to organize.For years, however, Congress has refused to move on immigration policy, ignoring the demands from and anger in the streets. Instead, the Democrats bowed to the Republicans, who not only stalled any movement on so-called immigration reform, but carried out an insidious and inflammatory propaganda campaign that resulted in an anti-immigrant, racist hate war.The movement never gave up its struggle. So when President Obama announced that he was going to move on “immigration reform,” the entire movement held its breath in anticipation.Obama’s Nov. 20 Executive Order includes the following: “First, we’ll build on our progress at the border with additional resources for our law enforcement personnel so that they can stem the flow of illegal crossings, and speed the return of those who do cross over.”“Second, I will make it easier and faster for high-skilled immigrants, graduates, and entrepreneurs to stay and contribute to our economy, as so many business leaders have proposed.“Third, we’ll take steps to deal responsibly with the millions of undocumented immigrants who already live in our country. I want to say more about this third issue, because it generates the most passion and controversy.“We’re going to offer the following deal: If you’ve been in America for more than five years; if you have children who are American citizens or legal residents; if you register, pass a criminal background check, and you’re willing to pay your fair share of taxes — you’ll be able to apply to stay in this country temporarily, without fear of deportation. You can come out of the shadows and get right with the law.”The president’s plan is expected to affect up to 5 million undocumented workers. According to the Migration Policy Institute, the total undocumented population is about 12 million people.This means that about 7 million workers will continue to be vulnerable for deportation and super-exploitation.A new program of deferrals will be set for approximately 4 million undocumented parents of U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents who have been here for at least five years. Deferrals would include authorization to work and would be granted for three years at a time.The new Executive Order will expand a program created in 2012 called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA.Young people brought to the country as children may now apply for deportation deferrals and work permits. Some 1.2 million young immigrants are currently eligible, and the new plan would expand eligibility to approximately 300,000 more. An additional 1 million people will have some protection from deportation through other parts of the president’s plan.The immigrant community had a broad range of reactions. Some chanted “Si se pudo” (yes we did); others felt huge relief knowing that they were protected in the coming future. Others realized that they fell under the category of protection while their mothers or fathers still could face deportation — continuing the brutal, tragic breaking up of families.The Dignity Campaign, an immigration organization, responded: “We reject the trade-off the administration is making in increasing enforcement and labor programs as a price our communities must pay for deportation relief for some.”Executive Order in context President Obama’s Nov. 20 announcement takes place amidst more deportations than at any other time in U.S. history. Obama was elected on a promise to “fix immigration policy.” Yet he has deported over 2.5 million workers since coming into office. Many call him “Deporter-in-Chief.” Many deportees could have found some reprieve under the current order.The Executive Order continues to benefit the arms industry, which has called for further border enforcement and militarization.The government never addresses the root causes of migration, let alone deals with them. Brutal events in Honduras and Mexico alone — all problems made in Washington — will continue to force workers to leave their homeland, no matter how much the imperialists militarize the border.In addition, Obama announced that his Executive Order could be undone by future presidents or Congress.Struggle continuesRepublicans responded to Obama’s immigration policy with a total farce.  Entrenched in hyperbole, unanimous in inflammatory racist rhetoric, the Republican Party waged an insidious and well-orchestrated campaign against the White House.Some said that Obama’s “amnesty” announcement would bring “violence in the streets” and usher in “anarchy.”  Their comments were as reactionary as 1950s rhetoric against Communists or marijuana.“By ignoring the will of the American people, President Obama has cemented his legacy of lawlessness and squandered what little credibility he had left,” said House Speaker John A. Boehner (usnews.com, Nov. 21). The Republicans hint that the government may be shut down again in retaliation.That the Republican Party has waged a racist, anti-immigrant campaign and the Democrats failed to seriously and genuinely defend workers’ interests speaks again to the need to break with both capitalist parties.Both parties are beholden to the system. That system is waging irreconcilable war against the workers and oppressed peoples. No matter that the social base of the Democratic Party includes unions and people of color, while the Republicans’ base is socialites and billionaires, both parties seek to keep the capitalist status quo of low wages, war and police brutality.More and more undocumented workers are deciding that they will stay here no matter what  — unless they want to leave.No matter what happens in the White House, the streets of Washington must be filled with the same righteous anger that is now sweeping Mexico.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
