Nine of these lenders are based in Germany, including Deutsche Bank. Eurohypo and DG Hyp. Only Barclays, RBS and Santander stand out as non-German large property lenders. Savills said that banks from other countries are instead teaming up to provide large-scale loans for property purchases. A syndicate of French banks and ING helped fund the Carlyle Group’s £671m purchase of six properties in the White Tower portfolio in July. Many other lenders with existing property loan books have worked with existing customers to restructure existing loans, in particular HSBC and Lloyds Banking Group, said Savills. Savills’ head of UK valuation William Newsom said: “In the commercial property investment market there has been a reduced volume of properties coming to the market, and often those prime assets that lenders would like to lend against are being snapped up by non-debt-backed purchasers. “The transaction markets are being dominated by equity players, leading to a scarcity of opportunities for lenders.”Felix Rabeneck, director of central London investment, said: “The market this year has been largely driven by equity buyers who are in some cases favoured by vendors given the perception that debt is difficult to secure with a lengthy approval process. We estimate that of the ten largest deals in the City this year, six have been equity driven.” Banks ready to lend for big property buys center_img whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan Times Sunday 3 October 2010 10:52 pm whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Mar 23, 2015 SHARE Farmers, ranchers and forest landowners who signed Conservation Stewardship Program contracts in 2011 with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) have until Tuesday, March 31, 2015 to renew those expiring contracts.These farmers, ranchers and forest landowners have the option to renew their existing contracts non-competitively if they are willing to adopt additional conservation activities aimed at helping them achieve higher levels of conservations on their operations, said Jason Weller, Chief of NRCS.Changes in the 2014 Farm Bill will allow CSP participants with expiring contracts to renew them by exceeding stewardship thresholds for two or more existing natural resource concerns specified by NRCS or by meeting stewardship thresholds for at least two new natural resource concerns such as improving water quality or soil health.About 9,300 contracts covering more than 12.2 million acres are nearing the end of their five-year term and can be renewed for an additional five years. The agricultural producer or forest landowner must complete all conservation activities contained in the initial contract before a renewal can be granted. An agricultural producer or forest landowner must meet the minimum criteria established by NRCS to renew an expiring CSP contract. Contract renewal also offers these agricultural producers and forest landowners an opportunity to add new conservation activities to meet their conservation goals and protect the natural resources on their farms, forests or ranches. The 2014 Farm Bill includes an expanded conservation activity list that now includes cover crops, intensive rotational grazing and wildlife-friendly fencing.USDA’s largest conservation program by acreage, CSP pays participants for conservation performance — the better the performance, the higher the payment. Nearly 70 million acres have been enrolled in the program since its launch in 2009.USDA offers financial and technical assistance to agricultural producers and forest landowners for the active management and maintenance of existing conservation activities and for carrying out new conservation activities on working agricultural land. Eligible lands include cropland, grassland, prairie land, improved pastureland, rangeland, non-industrial private forestland and tribal agricultural land. Applicants must have control of the land for the 5-year term of the contract.CSP participants who wish to renew for an additional five years must submit an application indicating their intent to renew to their local NRCS office prior to March 31, 2015, the national deadline.To learn more about CSP contract renewals, visit your local NRCS office.

first_imgNews May 16, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders welcomes the release of Al-Jazeera bureau chief Walid Al-Omari on bail yesterday. “We reiterate our appeal to the Israeli authorities to stop harassing Al-Jazeera’s journalists and we call on the judicial authorities to drop all charges against Omari,” the organisation said. Reporters Without Borders hailed the release of Al-Jazeera bureau chief Walid Al-Omari on bail yesterday but reiterated its appeal to the Israeli authorities to stop harassing the Qatar-based TV news station’s journalists and called on the judicial authorities to drop all charges against Omari.In a phone call with his editors following his release, Omari said: “It is clear that certain parties want to obstruct Al-Jazeera’s coverage of events.” Al-Jazeera stressed that Omari’s release was subject to payment of bail.Omari was arrested by Israeli police for the second time in two days on the morning of 17 July while covering the armed clashes taking place in the Akka region of northern Israel, near the Lebanese border.————————————————————————–17.07.2006 Al-Jazeera bureau chief arrested in northern IsraelReporters Without Borders today called for the immediate release of Walid Al-Omari, Al-Jazeera’s bureau chief in Israel, who was detained today in northern Israel shortly after reporting live on the Qatar-based satellite TV news station about the cross-border clashes with Lebanon. It was the second time Omari had been arrested by the police in two days.“We condemn the methods being used by the Israeli authorities against Al-Jazeera,” the organisation said. “We do not understand why the army harasses this TV station’s journalists and we appeal to the Israeli government to take measures to ensure that all journalists in Israel can work with complete freedom.”Al-Jazeera told Reporters Without Borders it did not understand the Israeli army’s position either. “We think we are covering the fighting with the utmost possible objectivity. These events make us again question the conditions in which our staff work in Israel. The tension is really palpable on the ground.”The station added: “According to our journalists there, our bureau chief, Walid Al-Omari, has been interrogated for more than four hours, in a rather violent manner. We condemn the use of force against him.”Omari was taken today to the police station in Akka for interrogation after being arrested near the town. He had already been arrested and questioned yesterday and had been freed this morning after spending the night in a detention centre.Members of another Al-Jazeera crew were also detained while covering developments in Haifa. The station said the Israeli authorities ordered reporter Elias Karram and his crew to keep away from an oil refinery located on the waterfront.Awad Rajoub, a Palestinian journalist who works for Al-Jazeera’s website, was freed for lack of evidence on 24 May after being held for six months. He was arrested by Israeli soldiers on 30 November 2005 at his home in Doura, 10 km from the West Bank city of Hebron, and accused of “threatening state security.” The soldiers confiscated his mobile phone at the time of his arrest. The army said his arrest had nothing to do with his work.

Their names disappeared from the magazine’s organisation chart in November. They are Ren Zhongyi, the former Communist Party chief in Guangzhou, Wu Nansheng, Zheng Qun, Qi Feng and Yang Yingbin.Xiao, who had been a member of the magazine’s editorial board since its creation in 1988, was fired for publishing an interview with Ren in which he advocated political reforms and criticised the authorities for censoring the print media and Internet.______________________________________________________________27.10.2004No let up in crackdown on Guangzhou pressReporters Without Borders today condemned the dismissal of Xiao Weibi as editor of a liberal, Guangzhou-based magazine for carrying an interview with a former, pro-reform political leader, and the new sanctions taken against Cheng Yizhong, the former editor of the dailies Xin Jing Bao and Nanfang Dushi Bao.The organisation said it was outraged by the relentless hounding of the liberal press in Guangdong province by the local authorities, especially propaganda department chief Zhu Xiaodan, and it called on Prime Minister Wen Jiabao to intervene on behalf of Xiao and Cheng as well as fellow journalists Yu Huafeng and Li Minying, who have all been victims in different ways.Xiao was fired on 2 September as editor of Tong Zhou Gong Jin (meaning “One ship moving forward”) over an interview in which Ren Zhongyi, the former head of the Guangdong communist party, called for political reforms and criticised censorship of the press and Internet.Contacted by the Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post, Xiao said: “I am no longer the editor. You must understand that I am in a very difficult position.” The magazine’s new editor told Agence France-Presse that his predecessor had “gone into retirement.”The interview seems to have roused the wrath of both local and central government authorities. According to the Hong Kong-based magazine Yazhou Zhoukan, a deputy minister was sent from Beijing to investigate and deal with the matter. Tong Zhou Gong Jin has been published since 1988 by a local communist party offshoot.Another Guangzhou-based magazine, Nanfeng Chuang, was also investigated for publishing extracts of the interview. But it was not punished because it did not include the section in which Ren directly criticised the late Deng Xiaoping.The new sanctions against Cheng Yizhong were adopted by the communist party’s disciplinary committee in Guangdong on 22 October. Cheng was dismissed as editor-in-chief of the daily Nanfang Dushi Bao and expelled from the party. The party committee within the Nanfang press group was not informed and the party banned the Chinese press from reporting the sanctions. Several sources said that following these latest decisions it was hard to imagine that Cheng, who was held without charge from 20 March to 27 August, would ever be able to work as a journalist again.Yu and Li are two other senior members of the Nanfang group staff who have been given long prison sentences on the basis of corruption charges that were trumped up by the local authorities, including Guangzhou police chief Zhu Suisheng, with the aim of sustaining a climate of fear in the Chinese press. to go further Receive email alerts Organisation China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures March 12, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Türkçe / Read in TurkishThe move followed raids on the newspaper Nokta and the blocking of the daily Cumhuriyet’s website in what appears to be an all-out drive to censor the government’s media critics.In response to a report five days ago in the pro-government newspaper Güneş, several Doğan Media Group outlets are being investigating for allegedly blurring the face of a Kurdish rebel killed by government forces but not blurring the faces of soldiers killed in an attack by members of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).The prosecutors are also investigating other accusations by Güneş although they were already dismissed by judges.Doğan Media Group under mounting pressureSeveral of Doğan’s media outlets, which include such leading ones as the Hürriyet daily, the CNN Türk TV station and the DHA news agency, have long been critical of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s government.In 2009, a government-orchestrated case resulted in a court imposing an astronomical fine on Doğan that was eventually quashed, but the group replaced several of its editors who were particularly critical of the government and sold several of its outlets to pro-government press groups.The pressure on Doğan has stepped up again in recent months, with President Erdogan accusing it of terrorism and destabilization – accusations that became even more hysterical during the campaign for the June parliamentary elections and again after fighting resumed between government forces and PKK rebels in late July.Unruly demonstrators attacked Hürriyet’s headquarters in Istanbul twice last week – on 6 and 8 September – and it was only after the second attack that the government formally condemned the violence. The condemnation nonetheless lacked conviction because a parliamentary representative of the ruling AKP party who was one of the leaders of the first attack was neither arrested or questioned and was instead promoted within the party a week later. Generalized censorship of criticsCensorship is becoming increasingly widespread as the security situation continues to deteriorate amid a major political crisis. Media that support all leading opposition tendencies have been censored in the past two weeks, including Kemalist and left-wing outlets, and those that support the Gülen Movement or the Kurds.“This sudden spate of censorship is intolerable, unconstitutional and a violation of all the government’s international obligations,” said Johann Bihr, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk.“These measures not only restrict media freedom but will also fuel tension and deepen divisions in a society already on the brink of the precipice. We urge the authorities to stop making things worse and to instead help to defuse the situation by allowing a democratic debate.”Reporters Without Borders also reiterates its call for the authorities to overhaul Turkey’s anti-terrorism legislation and loosen its media legislation in order to reduce the risk of such abuses.The newspaper Nokta found itself at the centre of a storm yesterday after publishing a photomontage showing President Erdogan taking a selfie in front of the coffin of a Turkish soldier, in a reference to the escalation in fighting between government forces and PKK rebels.Far from being amused, the authorities launched a series of raids, withdrew the offending issue from most newsstands and suspended Nokta’s Twitter account. Managing editor Murat Çapan was briefly detained and charged with terrorist propaganda and insulting the president.At the same time, the website of Cumhuriyet, another government bugbear, was blocked for still unclear reasons. On 1 September, the headquarters of Koza İpek, a media group that supports the Gülen Movement, was raided on the grounds of alleged tax irregularities.Foreign journalists have not been spared. Three were expelled in the space of a week at the start of September after covering clashes between government soldiers and the PKK in the southeast, while VICE News journalist Mohammed Ismael Rasool is still being held in a high-security prison in the southern city of Adana.Turkey is ranked 149th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.
