first_img“We are very confident that we’re going to have a vaccine… by the end of the year,” he said, admitting he was getting ahead of his own advisors with the prediction. “I’ll say what I think,” he said. “We’re going to have an incredible following year,” he said.To a woman who called in expressing fear of financial ruin and eviction, Trump said her job would come back.”You get a job where you make more money,” he said.Saying Americans should start going back to beaches this summer and recommending that shuttered schools need to reopen in September, Trump forecast good news on the hunt for a vaccine. Topics : Greater than Lincoln?Lincoln gambled in 1861 that only war could preserve the United States by ending slavery and restoring the nation’s ideals of freedom. He won, becoming a national hero.But Lincoln is remembered as much for reaching out to former foes — something Trump did not seek to emulate as he spoke at the foot of the iconic statue.Previous presidents, he said, were “stupid” to allow reliance on foreign manufacturers for US medicines.The Democrats, he said, are “radical,” claiming they would prefer to see people get sick than see him succeed.Trump pronounced that he had “done more than any president in the history of our country in the first three years.”His self-declared greatness is questioned by many Americans.FiveThirtyEight’s latest tracking poll showing only 43.4 percent approving Trump’s performance and 50.7 percent disapproving.Trump even got in an online tussle with former president George W. Bush earlier Sunday, after the fellow Republican posted a video filled with the kind of empathy and solidarity that many accuse the current White House occupant of failing to show.Trump responded by complaining that Bush was “nowhere to be found” when he was battling off an impeachment attempt in Congress last year.center_img President Donald Trump relaunched his election campaign Sunday with a live television event inside the iconic Lincoln Memorial, promising an early coronavirus vaccine and urging Americans to put the pandemic behind them to embrace an “incredible” future.With the two-hour long Fox News “town hall,” Trump sought to wrap himself in the mantle of America’s arguably greatest president — and to persuade a nation battered by death and mass unemployment to look ahead.”We can’t stay closed as a country, we’re not going to have a country left,” he said on the show, where two moderators, as well as ordinary citizens via video, put questions to him in front of the monument. Saving his reelectionThe businessman Republican is doing poorly in most polls ahead of the November presidential contest against Democratic challenger Joe Biden, who remains shuttered in his Delaware home.Trump faces criticism for his bruising, divisive style during a time of national calamity. He is also accused by some of botching the early response to the COVID-19 virus.Worse, the previously booming US economy, which was seen as a golden ticket to his second term, is now in dire straits due to the nationwide lockdown.With officials saying the viral spread has begun to taper, Trump is itching to return to the campaign trail.However he faces new criticism that he is trying to declare premature victory, even as the illness continues to kill thousands of Americans every week.Having repeatedly minimized the death toll, claiming it will end at around 60,000, Trump conceded that now “we’re going to lose anywhere from 75, 80 to 100,000 people.”His emphasis, however, was not on the dead, but on resurrecting his image as a can-do leader who can end the skyrocketing unemployment caused by the lockdown.That audacious shift began Sunday at possibly the most hallowed monument in the country — the statue of Abraham Lincoln, who led the country through civil war, urged reconciliation, and was assassinated in his moment of triumph.Trump, who calls himself a “wartime president” denied that the election will turn into a referendum on his handling of the crisis.But he added: “I hope it does because we’ve done a great job.”In the next few days, Trump will follow up by breaking months of self-quarantine with long-distance trips to the key electoral states of Arizona and Ohio.It’s a play that will emphasize Trump’s massive visibility advantage over Biden and, the White House hopes, rewrite the public relations script after gaffes including the president’s suggestion that coronavirus patients ingest disinfectant.last_img read more

first_imgPGB, the €21.4bn pension fund for the Dutch printing industry, has replaced its consumer index-based indexation for a cost-of-living allowance drawn from a fixed 2% inflation. In a letter to its 118,000 participants, it explained that the change would enable it to grant indexation that exceeds real inflation.The pension fund said the new financial assessment framework (nFTK), which contains stricter rules for inflation compensation, had spurred the moveMaarten Jansen, board member at PGB, said: “Under the nFTK, a sustainable indexation is only possible if a scheme’s funding is more than 110%. “However, the amount of indexation could be no more than 10% of the surplus funding. This means the maximum cost-of-living allowance is 1% if the coverage ratio is 120%.”According to Jansen, PGB would have granted less inflation compensation had it continued with the consumer index. “If the consumer index rose 1%, PGB could increase pensions rights by no more than 0.5% in case of a funding of 120%,” he said.“However, with the indexation linked to a fixed 2% index, pensions can be increased by 1%.”PGB said it expected inflation to stay well under 2% for the coming years as a consequence of the European Central Bank’s quantitative easing programme.If inflation increases, the scheme could abandon the fixed indexation target.“The link isn’t fixed forever,” Jansen said, “but it is not our plan to establish a new target every couple of years either.”With its new indexation policy, the pension fund could compensate for the indexation in arrears over the past years.“If this were the case, we won’t count it as a compensating indexation,” Jansen said.PGB, rather than grant pension rights for indexation in arrears, has introduced the principle of an additional inflation compensation of 1%, which could be granted in case of a funding of 130%.That said, at April-end, PGB’s official policy coverage ratio – the nFTK’s criterion for indexation and rights cuts – stood at 104.4%.last_img read more

first_imgRelatedPosts Neuer crowned Player of the Month for August Budapest to host Bayern-Sevilla Super Cup final Neymar reflects on Champions League defeat Manchester City brought in a record £535.2 million last season, the club’s 2018-19 annual report stated.It was City’s 11th successive year of revenue growth and closes the gap on local rivals Manchester United, the Premier League’s richest club.The figure is projected to rise again next year given City have already qualified for the knockout stages of the Champions League.Payments from a £45 million-a-year Puma kit deal will also start to take effect.United have already said their turnover will fall to between £560 million and £580 million this year because of their failure to qualify for the Champions League.The period covers a campaign when City’s men’s and women’s teams won a combined six trophies, including a clean sweep of English domestic honours for Pep Guardiola’s side.“This outcome represents not just a season, but a decade of hard work,” said Blues chairman Khaldoon al-Mubarak. “The organisation is now at a level of maturity that allows us to plan in multi-year cycles.”City recorded a profit of £10.1 million and a wage/turnover ratio of 59 per cent.

first_img In the wake of a 4-2 Super Cup defeat to Borussia Dortmund at the weekend, it had been speculated that Bayern were in the market for a new defender, with Brazilian Luiz reportedly topping the list. However, speaking at the presentation of the Audi Cup pre-season tournament in Munich, Guardiola rejected the speculation. “He’s not coming to Munich,” he said. “We’ve got four or five central defenders. “There is no truth to the speculation.” With Javi Martinez expected to feature more at the heart of the Bayern defence following the arrival of fellow Spanish midfielder Thiago Alcantara from Barcelona, Guardiola has enough cover at the back. Jerome Boateng and Daniel van Buyten both started against Dortmund, but Dante and Martinez are tipped to form the preferred defensive partnership in the continued absence of Holger Badstuber, who could miss the entire season with a knee injury. Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola says there is no truth to rumours linking his club with a bid for Chelsea defender David Luiz.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

first_img He said: “The first half of the season shows they are capable. “I don’t see any reason why they can’t [stay in the top four]. I think we’ve seen enough results this year to suggest the sides who have been promoted are doing well and the big guns are not having it their own way.” Asked about returning to management after being sacked by Leicester in the summer, Pearson added: “It will be w hen a job comes a long that suits both parties, which is the most important thing.” The 28-year-old’s exploits in front of goal have inevitably led to speculation surrounding his future, with Chelsea and Real Madrid reported to be interested in signing him. But Pearson, the man who signed Vardy for Leicester from Fleetwood for £1million in 2012, believes the player will remain at the King Power Stadium during the January transfer window. “I would encourage him to stay, but it’s not for me to do that,” Pearson told BBC Radio 5 live’s Sportsweek. “You’ve got to protect your own interests, but there comes a point when you have to recognise when to keep hold of a player and when they no longer want to be there. Players have so much power these days and a player’s state of mind is key to their performance. “But I think Vardy will stay there because he’s a fantastic lad as well as a player, and they’re such a strong group.” Vardy remaining will obviously be key to Leicester’s chances of maintaining their position during the second half of the season. Saturday’s goalless home draw against Bournemouth saw the Foxes slip two points behind Premier League leaders Arsenal but Ranieri’s side are still second in the table, ahead of Manchester City by one point and seven points clear of fifth-placed Manchester United. Pearson, 52, thinks Leicester can hold on to a Champions League place. Former Leicester manager Nigel Pearson thinks the club will keep hold of Jamie Vardy this month and finish in the top four of the Barclays Premier League. Leicester have been this season’s surprise package, transforming themselves under the guidance of Pearson’s successor Claudio Ranieri from relegation battlers to title challengers. Vardy has been instrumental in the Foxes’ rise, with his 15 goals making him the division’s joint-leading scorer alongside Everton striker Romelu Lukaku. Press Associationlast_img read more

first_imgA pair of Trojan freshmen registered impressive finishes in the women’s 800-meter race. Freshman distance runner Jemima Russell took home first place while breaking the USC freshman record for the event with a time of 2:05.90, and fellow freshman distance runner Alyssa Brewer, the previous USC freshman record-holder, clocked in at 2:07.88 to finish fourth. The Trojan track and field team continued its dominant start to the 2019 season this weekend at the Tyson Invitational in Fayetteville, Ark. Pitted against stiff competition from the SEC, Big Ten and Big 12 conferences, the Trojans compiled four first-place finishes and rewrote the USC track and field record books. With the No. 2 women’s team and No. 11 men’s team nationally, USC aims to build off last weekend’s impressive showing with the beginning of the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation championships in Seattle on Feb. 22. Three Trojans qualified for the finals of the women’s 60-meter hurdles. Sophomore sprinter and hurdler Chanel Brissett followed her first-place finish at the Texas Tech Invitational last week with another victory in Fayetteville, setting a personal record and earning the second-fastest time in USC history, with a time of 7.9 seconds. Junior Anna Cockrell and redshirt senior Dior Hall finished in sixth and seventh place with times of 8.15 and 8.17, respectively. Freshman sprinter Brendon Stewart added to USC’s tally of top-three finishes, as his time of 6.64 seconds earned him second place in the men’s 60-meter dash. On Saturday, the Trojans sustained their success at the invitational with strong results in the field events and relays. Sophomore jumper Cassidy Palka tied for third place and moved up the rankings to eighth in USC history by clearing the 1.67-meter bar in the women’s high jump. Sophomore hurdler Cameron Samuel secured the first of the Trojans’ top-three finishes over the course of the weekend, earning third place in the men’s 400-meter hurdles with a time of 47.46 seconds. In the men’s 60-meter hurdles, freshman Ayden Owens set consecutive personal bests and USC freshman records in both the qualifying round and finals. Owen’s final time of 7.83 seconds was good for sixth place, both at the meet and in USC history for the event. center_img USC extended its prolific sprinting results to the women’s 60-meter dash. Sprinters sophomore TeeTee Terry and freshman Lanae-Tava Thomas both advanced to the final round of the event despite a crowded field. Terry clocked in at 7.25 seconds to earn a third-place finish, while Thomas finished seventh with a time of 7.36 seconds. The women’s 4×400-meter relay team passed the University of Florida’s team on the anchor leg to finish in first place with a time of 3:30.43, while the men’s 4×400 meter relay team clocked in at 3:06.78 to come in fourth.

(Photo courtesy of USC Athletics/John McGillen) On the men’s side, junior Matthew Myrtue set a new personal record and climbed to sixth on the USC records list in the men’s 800-meter race by registering a 1:51.64 finish. Junior distance runner Chloe Berry burst ahead on the final straightaway of the women’s one-mile race to complete a come-from-behind win by a thin margin of 0.37 seconds. Junior sprinter Kyra Constantine helped the Trojans end the first day of competition on a high note, securing USC’s fourth first-place finish of the meet with a time of 53.07 in the women’s 400-meter race. last_img read more
