Day two of his new job and Boris Johnson is already besieged by well intentioned advice from the property sector. After a seemingly endless interlude between Mrs May resigning and the new Mr Johnson being voted in as the new Tory leader, the property world is keen to get his attention – particularly when the subject is Stamp Duty – or SDLT – which is blamed by many property professionals for being a deterrent to those who would like to move home.Guy Gittins, Managing Director of Chestertons, says that the implications for the housing market remain to be seen, “Boris Johnson was more vocal on housing issues during the campaign trail than his opponent, and all eyes will now be on what policy initiatives are taken forward and who Johnson assembles in his cabinet.“During his Tory leadership campaign, Johnson hinted that one of his priorities as Prime Minister will be supporting homeownership and that his housing policy is likely to be shaped around shake-ups to Stamp Duty. His proposed Stamp Duty exemption for all property sales under £500,000 is intended to boost market activity and would certainly be a significant win for buyers of properties under this threshold. However, the degree to which this would stimulate the market is debatable as affordability is the greatest obstacle, especially for first-time buyers, who are already exempt from Stamp Duty on purchases below £300,000. Any significant increase in activity might fuel house price inflation, especially if – as is likely – supply of properties on the market remains low.”Lisa Simon, Head of Residential, Carter Jonas, is cautiously optimistic, “Providing no general election is to be called and the pound does not bounce, there is an overarching optimism that Boris Johnson’s proposed reforms will inject some life, and much needed momentum, back into the property market.“Johnson has been vocal on being prepared to leave without a deal at the end of October, and the very thought of this has been an ongoing concern amongst our clients. That said, one eventuality that could leave prime pockets of the market feeling more unsettled is the potential of Number 10 opening its doors to a Corbyn government. Without being able to rule out the possibility of a general election – and thus a Labour administration – at this stage, speculation will continue to stunt the top end of the market under Johnson’s leadership, with a small handful of clients still deeming the risk too high at this moment in time.INHOUS co-founder and Managing Director, David Johnson, added, “We have already seen the impact of this off the back of Boris Johnson’s initial statement on slashing stamp duty rates. When he came out with this statement, a number of the luxury properties that we had been monitoring for our clients received some strong offers submitted to purchase them. And on some occasions, we noticed multiple buyers bidding for the same properties – some of these properties being on the market for well over 12 months. These buyers are clearly trying to secure properties now off the back of Boris Johnson’s indication of slashing Stamp Duty levels.“Now that Boris has been formally announced as the next Prime Minister, I would not be surprised to see a surge in prime properties being secured by buyers with a delayed completion for September – in the hope of the lower stamp duty rates coming into effect by then.”Stamp duty Boris Johnson PM guy gittins Lisa Simon INHOUS Boris Johnson sdlt Carter Jonas Sheila Manchester Chestertons stamp duty David Johnson July 25, 2019The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

As required by law, we have started our consultation process with the workforce in respect of potential redundancy. This includes consultation with people who are likely to transfer to a new employer, and the Liquidator and Special Managers are in extensive discussions with organisations in relation to such possible transfers. Contrary to some reports in the media today the Liquidator and the Special Managers of various companies within the Carillion group are not making the entire workforce redundant. A spokesperson for the Official Receiver said: The company continues to service all its existing facilities management contracts which it has done since the date of liquidation and will continue to do so with the support of its customers, employees and suppliers. Inaccurate and misleading information can only add to the distress of employees already dealing with considerable uncertainty who we continue to value and thank for their continued service, which is ensuring we can provide continuity of service to our customers.
Today marks a sad chapter in music history, as the beloved R&B singer Prince passed away earlier today. As we continue to grieve over the loss of a legend, we turn to the healing power of music and explore a number of tributes performed by artists we love.As part of their 1994 Chocolate and Cheese tour, Ween stopped by Slim’s in San Francisco and did a romantic cover of Prince’s “Purple Rain.” Dean and Gene really brought it together for this song, taking a step back from their typical early-90’s, brown-thrashing performances. Deaner’s guitar-work, in particular, shines as he pays homage to the distinct guitar-work of the Purple One himself, while Gene’s voice echoes the emotion.Watch the beauty as it unfolds:RIP Prince. We’ll miss you.
In March of 1970, 46 female journalists filed a landmark gender-discrimination suit against Newsweek magazine. The female employees there — despite filling a quarter of the masthead — were called “dollies.”That lawsuit turned into a famous moment of second-wave feminism, which swept through the 1970s like a boiling culture storm, setting off social effects still debated today.A few veteran feminists of that era gathered May 28 at the Loeb Drama Center, forming a panel called “Feminism Then and Now.” A gentle divide opened among the speakers. Older feminists still clamored for sisterhood and complained of uneven progress four decades later. Their younger counterparts wished aloud for a new, broader definition for a movement all about choice and equality.“We need to build a new girls’ club,” but one that is more welcoming, said panelist Priyamvada Natarajan, RI ’09, a young professor of astronomy and physics at Yale University. “We need a new definition [of feminism], perhaps one that is less loaded.”Rethinking feminism is required in a global world of immense diversity, she said, making it “a very unequal world along many, many dimensions.”But Natarajan thanked the older feminists on hand for making her path in academe smoother, and for underlining the durable power of women’s networks that are a refuge in many professions still dominated by men, at least at the top.Businesswoman Diana Scott ’81 acknowledged the power and necessity of networking, but said the challenges of workplaces today — where “the glass ceiling has been shattered multiple times” — are different than 40 years ago. The issues are about diversity more broadly now, she said, including gender, ethnicity, and cultural diversity. “In order for [corporations] to be successful, diversity becomes a business imperative.”An older feminist energy was also still evident among the panelists. “I am very optimistic about the future,” said Natarajan of the social pathways feminism has cleared. “But I am impatient. We need to move on fast.”For one, disparity in wages still exists, she reminded listeners. Her women colleagues don’t give much thought to women’s rights in their lives — until they emerge into a marketplace that pays them $10,000 a year less than their male counterparts, said Natarajan. “Suddenly, they all become feminists.”Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Susan Faludi ’81, RI ’09, acknowledged some advances, including at Harvard, where the president and five of the top deans are women, and where the student body itself is half female.“But all of this celebration should not obscure how far women have to go,” she said. Women can celebrate all the contrasts of “feminism then and now,” she said, but they “remain captive to another prevailing syndrome, which I will call ‘feminism now and then.’ ”One example is the Newsweek lawsuit of 40 years ago, said Faludi. Despite advances since then by female journalists, only six of the last 49 cover stories at the magazine were written by female writers, she said, citing news accounts, and at the top 15 U.S. magazines, male bylines predominate over female by a 7-1 ratio.“Feminism’s progress is too often a spasmodic stop-and-start affair,” said Faludi, “with great bursts of mobilization followed by long periods of quiescence and partial amnesia, with the great strides of one generation forgotten — or even disowned — by the next.”She reminded the audience (which included feminist icon Gloria Steinem) that the female Newsweek staffers tasked to write about the 1970 lawsuit first had to be told it happened. Feminism needs, said Faludi, “a spirit of not-forgetting.”Journalist Susan McHenry ’72 — who called herself “a basic witness of early feminist wars” — acknowledged the on-and-off draw of feminism in American culture since 1970, and said that even today many women remain “one man away from welfare.”But there is hope too, she said, in a younger generation completely unaware of the constraints placed on women until recently. McHenry told about a 9-year-old girl, a friend from church, who was told that not long ago women were not allowed to serve on the altar. “She said: ‘Why not?’ ”Feminism stays alive in places other than the public arena, said McHenry, such as church auxiliary groups, or anywhere women gather deliberately as friends.Author and historian Nell Irvin Painter, Ph.D. ’74, BI ’77, a retired Princeton University professor, said that arguments over the place of evangelical religion in feminism almost shattered a women’s group that she belongs to, its members all veterans of the cultural turmoil of the 1970s.But the key word is respect, she said, concerning value systems outside traditional feminism. This signal of flexibility and inclusion was shared among the panelists.For instance, how should feminists confront issues concerning women in the Islamic world? It was a question that came up during written questions from the audience. “We can’t stand outside and shake our fingers,” said Painter. “It’s not about our telling them what to do.”That issue of modern inclusion also came up regarding the military, in the face of the fact that feminism has historically been associated with peace movements.“There’s no one way to be a woman; there’s no one way to be a feminist,” said Painter. “Again, the key term is ‘respect.’ ”McHenry noted the historical irony. Faludi mused on “the enormous feminist implications about women breaking through this [military] barrier,” and Scott got right to the broader point. “We’re looking for choice,” she said of women gaining ground in the military. “It’s a positive for the feminist movement, even if there’s an irony involved.”Success was another leitmotif of the panel. What does it look like to feminists?“Success is not linear,” said Natarajan, and it can be manifest in your emotional life as well as in the workplace. “There isn’t one track.”Painter, now an M.F.A. student at the Rhode Island School of Design, defines success her own way. “I’m going to be a very old emerging artist,” she said of her new painting career as an older black woman. Painter saw herself as a counterpoint to the typical artist, “a cute young white person in very tight clothes.”Faludi had a more traditional, defiant sense of success. “What’s wrong with rocking the boat?” she said, getting a burst of applause. “Having a successful life means rocking the boat in all sorts of ways.”Scott, the businesswoman, took the broader view again. Success means going to a workplace, she said, “where debate and active disagreement is encouraged.”The panel, which was sponsored by the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, was the morning event for Radcliffe Day (May 28). Following the panel was the annual luncheon and the awarding of the Radcliffe Institute Medal to Steinem.

Southern corn rust struck Georgia’s corn crop two weeks earlier this season and has spread across the Coastal Plain, says a University of Georgia plant pathologist. If not treated quickly, the annual disease can stunt plants and reduce yields.“If you don’t protect against southern rust early enough, and it starts to spread, it’s hard to stop. Once it escapes the bottle, it’s hard to put back in the bottle,” said Bob Kemerait, a UGA Extension scientist based on the Tifton Campus. Kemerait has been busy answering phone calls from growers who thought they had the disease under control only to discover it when weather conditions favored a spread of the disease.If southern corn rust is not spotted or treated quickly, it can have a devastating impact on corn production in the Southeast, particularly in Georgia where yield losses in excess of 25 bushels of corn per acre have been observed. Southern corn rust infects corn leaves. The infected leaves can’t produce as many sugars through photosynthesis, which reduces yield. It can also drain the stalk of its strength, making corn plants vulnerable during high winds that could blow the stalks down.Kemerait said if southern corn rust is contained to the bottom third of the plant, there’s still time for treatment. However, if the rust has spread upward, even in seemingly small amounts, it is much more difficult to manage. At that point the grower is not only battling the visible disease, but also the infections that have yet to produce symptoms.“The reality of corn rust has been unbelievable for me this season. I’ve really never seen anything like it in that rust started to appear two weeks earlier than the earliest I’ve seen it in the past,” he said. “Not only have we found it earlier, we have found that it rapidly spread out all over the Coastal Plain. We have found it from Seminole County in the southwest to Effingham County in the east.”Southern corn rust was first spotted this year on June 5. It is typically not seen in corn until the end of June, if not July. The reason for earlier occurrences is unknown, but Kemerait suspects it could be the wet spring that made conditions favorable for the disease.A significant challenge southern rust presents for corn growers is how best to optimize fungicide applications. Available fungicides are effective but must be applied so as to cover a significant portion of the corn leaves, especially the lower ones. Obtaining good coverage of the leaves can be challenging when spraying from a plane, that typically deploys only a few gallons of spray per acre.“How does a farmer get the fungicide to the interior of the canopy where it is most critically needed?,” Kemerait said. “What’s important is to insure that we spray early enough, before the disease is a problem, and to figure out how to get the coverage we need, which is a problem with corn.”Southern corn rust is re-introduced to Georgia every year. The rust pathogen requires a living host (corn) and can’t survive in freezing temperatures. If corn is not in the field, the pathogen that causes the disease will not survive.Georgia corn growers sponsor an annual early-detection program for southern rust through their check-off dollars to the Georgia Commodity Commission for Corn. Through UGA, this detection program provides a significant management tool in the battle against southern rust.
