Seems the tiny percentage of bad tenants get a disproportionate amount of unwarranted Tax-payers support. !Log in to ReplyKristjan Byfield, base property specialists ltd base property specialists ltd 30th June 2020 at 11:24 amI have tweeted a thread response to them defending our incredible industry.

The successful integration of two mills and strong sales of speciality flours have helped Cumbria-based miller Carr’s notch up healthy sales and profit increases.For the 52 weeks to 2 September 2006, Carr’s Milling Industries announced that its food division increased its operating profit to £3.3m from the previous year’s total of £2.3m. Turnover reached £55.7m, up from £48m in 2005.Carr’s three mills in Cumbria, Fife and Essex operated at near capacity throughout the period. CEO Chris Holmes told British Baker the mills still had some spare capacity, but the company is “always looking for acquisitions if the opportunity is right”.Higher-margin speciality flours are performing particularly well, while the Kirkcaldy and Maldon mills, acquired from Meneba in November 2004, benefited from a full year’s trading and efficiencies implemented since acquisition.Carr’s warned that the coming year would present challenges. Chairman Richard Inglewood said: “The massive increase in wheat prices, combined with high-energy costs, will make it a tough year.”Holmes said Carr’s would introduce a second flour price rise, following one earlier in the year, of £25 per tonne before Christmas.
Lindsay Lohan is ready to show off her singing chops once more! Nope, not for Tina Fey’s Mean Girls musical. Her sights are set a little ways offshore. Lohan took to Instagram on February 19 to put her dream of playing Ariel in Disney’s live-action remake of The Little Mermaid out into the universe.According to Us Weekly, the post, which currently is captioned simply “#thelittlemermaid,” originally read, “I will sing again, as #ariel #thelittlemermaid. @disney approve that #billcondon directs it along with my sister @alianamusic singing the theme song for the soundtrack. also @kgrahamsfb plays Ursula. Simply because, she is the best. take one. @disneystudios.” The 30-year-old actress paired a photo of her flowing auburn locks with a still of Ariel from the 1989 animated film.Lohan shouted out Beauty and the Beast director Bill Condon as well as her younger sister Aliana. She also tagged athlete Kristen Graham as her dream Ursula.The role of Ariel is not cast (screen star Chloë Grace Moretz was swimming around the project for a while), but as previously reported, The Little Mermaid already has quite a creative team. Hamilton mastermind, Tony winner, Grammy winner, Emmy winner and Oscar nominee Lin-Manuel Miranda will team up with Disney legend Alan Menken to pen new tunes (and adapt some familiar ones from Menken’s collaboration with the late Howard Ashman) for a new live action take on the beloved film.Will we find Lindsay Lohan under the sea on the big screen? If putting her dream out there works the same way for Lohan as it did for Tony nominee Norm Lewis, anything is possible. Lindsay Lohan(Photo: Robin Marchant/Getty Images) View Comments

In today’s increasingly competitive financial services industry, member profitability has become a vital topic. Accompanying this growing interest has been the challenge of developing and interpreting member profitability data and information. For all the talk about retaining the most profitable members and migrating the less profitable ones, few financial institutions can actually calculate profitability at the member level with any degree of accuracy. In fact, a number of financial industry studies indicate that less than one-fifth of U.S. financial institutions accurately calculate member profitability.Member profitability models provide a powerful means for linking marketing and growth strategies to “bottom-line” results. The integration of financial and transactional data into a consolidated data warehouse that allows management to focus on the value of member relationships in addition to the more traditional behavioral and demographic perspectives offered by some MCIF and CRM systems. However, navigating through the various technical and data issues related to derive accurate and usable profitability can be confusing and intimidating enough to stop many leaders.For years, traditional MCIF systems have followed various approaches in calculating member profitability, but very few have performed this calculation with any degree of accuracy. Many profit models follow a “one size fits all” approach, which is certainly easier to implement, yet fails to capture critical differences in value among members. The increased emphasis on measuring true “member relationship” value has created the demand for the next generation of business intelligence platforms to improve their capabilities in this area. To help support the development of more value-focused marketing and retention strategies, the profitability model must accurately capture the profitability drivers of each member relationship.Best practice approaches for deriving account profitability and aggregating to the member level will contain the following key components: 1) historical funds transfer pricing; 2) non-interest income and non-interest expense calculations based on member-specific transaction activity and 3) loan loss provision that reflects the inherent risk of each member. While the level of precision will vary depending on the availability of the data sources – including account-level transaction detail – the main objective should be to reflect specific member behavior in the calculation of member relationship value.As competition for identifying, retaining and growing the “ideal” members intensifies, it is no longer enough to settle for a rough idea of relative profitability. Successful marketing strategies must create opportunities to serve member needs in ways that will be profitable to the institution. Accurate member profitability information is essential to identifying where those opportunities exist. 13SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Bill Hasapidis Bill Hasapidis is Director of Data Analytics at Weber Marketing Group.Bill is the creator of ProfiTRAC™ a comprehensive profitability model that uses customized rule-based algorithms and integrates funds transfer … Web: www.webermarketing.com Details
I would like to respond to Gerard Havasy’s letter of Feb. 21. I know both Mary Kuykendall [Feb. 14 letter] and Gerard Havasy from our days at GE. As far as I know, this is still a free country and we can express our opinions, even if others don’t agree. Referring to past administrations’ possible troubles when we have a present-day crisis of confidence in the current White House seems disingenuous to me. I suggest we hold off pointing the finger at past and present administrations until the Mueller investigation is complete. It’s interesting that Mr. Trump hasn’t implemented the Russian sanctions passed by Congress last year. Further, he still hasn’t come out and recognized the Russian meddling of our 2016 election, even when advised by his own intelligence agencies that it did and is still happening today.Douglas N.
