What could be the deciding factor?Each member of our small company, from the sales team to the content writers, chimed in with an answer — and they all revolved around a few key discussion points of the finance industry today.We’re not a marketing firm, research group or sophisticated polling institute.

German police injured as clashes erupt over virus quarantine


first_imgSeveral outbreaks at slaughterhouses, not just in Germany but also in France, have put a spotlight on the working and housing conditions that the workers — many of whom come from Romania or Bulgaria — are put under.The German government in May banned the use of subcontractors in the meat industry in a bid to curb the controversial practice of companies using middlemen to supply workers from abroad who are more vulnerable to abuses.Although Germany has weathered the coronavirus storm better than many of its European neighbors, the slaughterhouse outbreaks have dealt a blow to its efforts to restart Europe’s top economy. Topics : Several police officers were hurt in clashes with residents of a high-rise apartment block in the German city of Goettingen who had been placed under quarantine over a coronavirus outbreak, authorities said on Sunday.The violence erupted on Saturday as a group of residents sought to break through a metal barrier installed to keep the 700 people living in the residential complex in to prevent possible transmission of the virus.Some flung stones, bottles and wooden slats at officers, the city’s police chief Uwe Luehrig told journalists on Sunday.center_img Residents in the complex were put under quarantine on Thursday after two of them were found to be infected with COVID-19. By Friday, 120 people in the building tested positive.Goettingen is one of several outbreak clusters that have emerged in Germany since lockdown restrictions were lifted in May, including a huge cluster at a slaughterhouse in the North-Rhine Westphalia district of Guetersloh.More than 1,300 workers out of a total of nearly 7,000 have tested positive, and the region’s state premier Armin Laschet said Sunday that he “cannot rule out a blanket lockdown”.last_img read more

The €389bn Dutch pension fund ABP has bought 48 projects from the Dutch Infrastructure Fund (DIF) in a €700m deal.The investment contributes directly to the civil service scheme’s target – set in 2015 – of doubling its investments in sustainable development to €58bn in 2020, ABP said in a statement.As at the end of 2016 these investments amounted to €41bn.DIF is a €4.2bn Schiphol-based independent specialist investment group, focusing on infrastructure assets in the Netherlands and abroad.last_img read more

Liverpool title hopes in limbo as laws fail to cover incomplete season


first_img Loading… The Daily Star says there is no rule in place stating the Premier League can be deemed complete if 75 per cent of a season is completed, despite social media reports. The organisation voted to postpone fixtures until April 3 as they combat the spread of COVID-19.

Some have called for the season to be ended now, including West Ham CEO Karren Brady.Advertisement Most teams have played 29 games this season, which is over 75 per cent of the campaign. Only Manchester City , Arsenal , Sheffield United and Aston Villa have played less at 28 games (73 per cent).
