Belgian pension funds achieved a return of 1.45% on their investments in the first half of 2016, with the UK vote to leave the European Union having had a “very negative” impact on the financial markets, although they stabilised after, according to PensioPlus, Belgium’s occupational pension fund association.The survey was of a representative sample of Belgian pension funds with €23.4bn in total assets under management, representing around 60% of second-pillar funds in Belgium; the results were presented late last week.The 1.45% figure is the average weighted return.Inflation was reportedly 1.69% for the first half of the year, which lead to a loss of 0.23% in real terms. Philippe Neyt, president at PensioPlus, told IPE the rate of inflation was exceptionally high and “one of the highest in Europe”.He explained that the high rate was propelled by a jump in value-added tax on electricity from 6% to 21%.Inflation is expected to fall, to between 1.87% and 2.2%, depending on the source.PensioPlus noted that the results of its survey reflected the situation seven days after the UK referendum on the country’s membership of the European Union, a vote the association said had a “very negative” impact on the financial markets and, as a result, on investment returns.However, markets have stabilised since then, it said, adding that the weighted average return on investments since the beginning of 2016 would have been 4.56% as at the end of August.PensioPlus said its survey showed the returns to be principally due to a fall in interest rates that increased the value of fixed income investments.In equities, ex euro-zone stocks made a strong positive contribution.In 2015, Belgian pension funds posted a full-year return of 4.48%, with the real return at 2.86%.This is also based on a survey conducted by PensioPlus.This year, as at the end of June, Belgian pension funds’ asset allocation was split 35% equities, 45% bonds, 5% real estate, 2% liquid assets and 13% ‘other’ investments.With regard to “persistent low interest rates”, Neyt told IPE the “vicious circle had to be broken”.He noted that pension funds from Canada and Australia had countered the problem by making significant investments in infrastructure, including in Belgium, such as in Brussels airport and Elia, Belgium’s electricity transmission system.Belgian pension funds, according to Neyt, are invested in infrastructure funds such as TINC/DG.Neyt also addressed the subject of pan-European pensions funds, saying that Belgium had attracted two-thirds of funds that had moved, which made the country Europe’s predominant location for setting up cross-border pension vehicles.Pension funds and employers that have chosen Belgium as their base include RESAVER, the European Commission-backed second-pillar scheme for researchers, and Alcon, BP, Chevron, CITCO, Euroclear, GE, Johnson & Johnson, Nestlé, Pfizer and Sanofi.Neyt attributed this to Belgium’s legislation being fully in line with the EU IORP II Directive, with its flexible governance framework, and noted that the Belgian government had overcome a major hurdle relating to the deduction of withholding tax.The Belgian council of ministers recently passed a bill that clarifies the tax and administrative treatment of cross-border pensions. Changing pension attitudesThe PensioPlus returns survey coincided with multi-employer first-pillar pension fund Ogeo announcing the results of its latest annual opinion survey.Ogeo said the survey showed a “significant change in Belgians’ attitudes to their pensions”.For example, whereas in 2014 7% of respondents intended to retire after 65, in the latest survey, this increased to 28%.The survey showed that 63% of Belgians are in favour of the establishing a compulsory supplementary pension. Just under two-thirds of private sector workers support such a system, with public sector workers slightly less positively inclined (54% are in favour).Only 44% of working people in Belgium have a supplementary pension scheme with their employer, 36% of which are women and 55% men, according to the survey.
A Navantia Australia team led by chairman Warren King and managing director Donato Martinez, held discussions with Western Australia industry players on opportunities including LNG carrier repairs. West Australian senator Linda Reynolds said, “there is a significant opportunity for Western Australia to become a regional leader in the sustainment and maintenance of LNG vessels in conjunction with the sustainment of the future naval fleet.”Discussions with the Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation included the potential for an LNG carrier repair capability in the state, as well as WA’s substantial naval sustainment and maritime industry.“With Navantia Australia’s expertise in LNG carrier repair in Spain, we are optimistic about the opportunity to work with WA industry to establish a similar capability here,” King said.Navantia’s Ferrol shipyard is a major player in the European LNG carrier repair industry, one of six shipyards which account for over 94 percent of global LNG carrier repairs, the company’s statement reads.King noted that a number of West Australian companies that have been identified as potential suppliers for the Future Frigate program also have capabilities which provide natural synergies for LNG carrier repair and other opportunities.
New American 10 Dec 2012A recent study out of Denmark appears to show a higher incidence of premature death among women who have had an abortion than for women who give birth. The study tracked a group of Danish women over a 25-year period, finding that those who had undergone a single abortion had a 45-percent higher mortality rate over that time period than those who had carried babies to full term. The death rate among women rose dramatically for subsequent abortions, with women who had two abortions having a 114-percent greater likelihood of mortality during the study period, and women with three or more abortions facing a 192-percent chance of premature death.This is not the first study showing that abortion can be deadly for women. In November 2011 LifeNews.com reported on a study showing that women who have had a single abortion may face a nearly three-fold increase in risk of breast cancer. The study, led by Dr. Lilit Khachatryan of the American University of Armenia, and which included researchers from Johns Hopkins School of Public Health and the University of Pennsylvania, also found that delaying a first full-term pregnancy significantly raised the risk of breast cancer in women, while giving birth resulted in an over 60-percent reduced risk.“Khachatryan’s team reported a statistically significant 13 percent increased breast cancer risk for every one year delay of a first full term pregnancy (FFTP),” reported LifeNews, “with delayed FFTPs until ages 21-30 or after age 30 resulting in 2.21-fold and 4.95-fold increased risks respectively.” Karen Malec of the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer told LifeNews that the findings were not a surprise, because “54 of 67 epidemiological studies since 1957 report an abortion-breast cancer link….”In June 2010 the UK’s Daily Mail reported on a study from the University of Colombo in Sri Lanka that also showed a three-fold increase in risk of breast cancer among abortive women. The researchers discovered the apparent link between abortion and breast cancer “while carrying out research into how breastfeeding can protect women from developing the killer disease,” reported the Daily Mail. “While concluding that breastfeeding offered significant protection from cancer, they also noted that the highest reported risk factor in developing the disease was abortion.”The British paper noted that the Sri Lankan research represented the “fourth epidemiological study to report such a link in the past 14 months, with research in China, Turkey, and the U.S. showing similar conclusions.”http://www.thenewamerican.com/culture/item/13874-studies-show-abortion-may-increase-premature-death-breast-cancer-risk
Leicester City fans across the world are worried that the Super Eagles star, Wifred Ndidi, will miss football action for a month after the surgery on Thursday. Foxes manager, Brendan Rodgers, confirmed before his side’s 1-1 draw against Aston Villa that Ndidi picked up a knock in training, and will need to undergo surgery that will keep him out of action for a few weeks. “Wilfred took a knock in training yesterday, which unfortunately means he might need a slight operation tomorrow. That’ll put him out for a few weeks, but it’s not overly serious, so hopefully, going into February, he’ll be fit and ready to go again, Rodgers said. Ndidi’s absence will be a big miss for Leicester as he is one Foxes best players this season. Rodgers’ side have surpassed expectations this season with Leicester sitting in second place on the Premier League table, and Ndidi has played a major role in it. With his absence for the next one month, Foxes fans have expressed their feelings on social media.Advertisement Ndidi will undergo a minor knee operation on Thursday that is expected to keep him out of action until February. The Leicester City midfielder was a surprise absentee from the 1-1 draw with Aston Villa in the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final on Wednesday night. Rodgers explained an hour before the game that the Nigerian was out for a few weeks with injury, and the City boss clarified the details in his post-match interview, revealing that Ndidi had damaged his meniscus, a piece of cartilage in the knee, in training on Tuesday.

Greg Alexander who played basketball for Jennings County High School recently reached his goal of seeing a basketball game in all 92 Indiana Counties. It all started when Damon Bailey was playing for Bedford North Lawrence and beat Jennings County twice in Alexander’s playing career.After spending several years in the military, Alexander returned to Indiana, married, and moved to Gas City, Indiana. He missed basketball so much that he decided to try to see at least one game in every county. He achieved this goal when he went to Evansville North High School this past March. Even though it was a 200+ mile trip, he finally got the job done. Most of this information was contained in an article by Kyle Neddenriep in the Indianapolis Star.I guess I have a long way to go to come close to this. I know I have seen games in more than 30 counties, but that is a long way from 92.
