Denmark’s PFA begins search for successor to Henrik Heideby

first_imgThe head of Denmark’s largest commercial pensions provider PFA has resigned after more than 13 years at the helm to take on more directorships and give strategic advice, the DKK425bn (€57bn) pensions company has said.PFA’s chief executive Henrik Heideby will be leaving the group at the end of 2014, the company announced.Heideby said: “For almost 30 years, I have been involved with board work in many different industries, from the construction sector to the medical devices business.”He said he had the opportunity to expand his current portfolio in the next few years. “However, it is not compatible with the job as chief executive, which is why I have decided to change careers at the end of the year with the agreement of the chairman,” Heideby said.Svein Askær, PFA chairman, said the board had started the process of finding a replacement for Heideby.“We expect to have them in place by year-end,” he said.He said Heideby had been crucial to the success PFA had achieved over the past 10 years. “We are obviously sad to lose him, but also understand his choice, as Henrik has a lot of skills that will certainly be able to be used on a company’s board,” Askær said.Heideby said there had been some very exciting and challenging years at PFA since he took the top position in the autumn of 2001 after the September 11 attacks on the US, which hit the business hard.He said PFA now had a capital base of more than DKK28bn and total assets of nearly DKK425bn.last_img read more

Hillary Clinton Defends Aborting Babies Through Full Term of Pregnancy in 3rd Presidential Debate

first_imgAt the final presidential debate between her and Republican Party nominee Donald Trump on Wednesday, Clinton was asked by Fox News’ Chris Wallace her views on to what extent abortion should be regulated.“You have been quoted as saying that the fetus has no constitutional rights. You also voted against a ban on late-term, partial-birth abortions. Why?” asked Wallace.Clinton told those gathered at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas that “Roe v. Wade very clearly sets out that there can be regulations on abortion so long as the life and the health of the mother are taken into account.”“The kinds of cases that fall at the end of pregnancy are often the most heartbreaking, painful decisions for families to make,” said Clinton.“I do not think the United States government should be stepping in and making those most personal of decisions. So you can regulate if you are doing so with the life and the health of the mother taken into account.” The health of the mother exception is essentially a loophole because the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the abortionist can decide what qualifies as good for the health of the mother.Trump, who said earlier in the debate he would appoint pro-life judges to the United States Supreme Court, pressed Clinton about her position on abortion.“I think it’s terrible. If you go with what Hillary is saying, in the ninth month, you can take the baby and rip the baby out of the womb of the mother just prior to the birth of the baby. Now, you can say that that’s OK and Hillary can say that that’s OK. But it’s not OK with me,” argued Trump.Clinton responded to Trump’s criticism by stating that it was “scare rhetoric” and restated that “I do not believe the government should be making it.”Conservatives have argued that Clinton is an extremist on abortion, with her campaign platform opposing a late term abortion ban and supporting the removal of the Hyde Amendment, which limits federal funding of abortion.READ MORE: Abortion Rights Advocate Says He Lied About ProcedureNew York Times 26 February 1997A prominent member of the abortion rights movement said today that he lied in earlier statements when he said a controversial form of late-term abortion is rare and performed primarily to save the lives or fertility of women bearing severely malformed babies.He now says the procedure is performed far more often than his colleagues have acknowledged, and on healthy women bearing healthy fetuses.Ron Fitzsimmons, the executive director of the National Coalition of Abortion Providers, said he intentionally misled in previous remarks about the procedure, called intact dilation and evacuation by those who believe it should remain legal and ”partial-birth abortion” by those who believe it should be outlawed, because he feared that the truth would damage the cause of abortion rights.But he is now convinced, he said, that the issue of whether the procedure remains legal, like the overall debate about abortion, must be based on the truth.READ MORE: Christian Post 19 October 2016Family First Comment: “I think it’s terrible.

Time is now for Mane’s return

first_img Saints travel to the Hawthorns after last Sunday’s 2-0 loss at home to Liverpool saw them slip to fifth in the Premier League. Senegal winger Mane, who has scored five goals for Saints this term, was a substitute after turning up late for the Liverpool clash, but is now in contention to start. “They have the best players, they have the best possibilities and that’s normal.” Defender Toby Alderweireld is nearing a return, but is not likely to be back in contention until next Tuesday’s match with Crystal Palace. Koeman added: “Toby Alderweireld is close to being back, but is still not available for this weekend. “We hope he will be fit enough for next Tuesday. That’s good news that he is fairly close to being back.” The Dutchman is looking forward to have Alderweireld back, particularly as Jay Rodriguez (knee) and Emmanuel Mayuka (groin) remain long-term absentees. “It’s always frustrating for everybody, for the manager as well, because you like to have everybody available,” he said. “You like to have competition between your players in the squad.” Ronald Koeman has forgiven Sadio Mane for his poor timekeeping with the winger in line to return on Saturday to aid Southampton’s push for European football against West Brom. Koeman said: “I punished the player, because that’s one of the rules and instructions we have for the players. “Everybody is allowed to have one day late on a training session. That’s not a problem. “But to play you have to be on time. That was on that day. “He understood it. I spoke to Sadio before the game. He understood the reason why.” Koeman admits Southampton remain unfancied to claim a place in the Premier League’s top four and with it qualification for the Champions League, but he does not think it is beyond his side. “I don’t think it’s too much because everybody can dream about success, about the Champions League,” he said. “We know exactly our qualities. It will be a very long season to keep this position in the table. “The big ones (clubs) normally – it’s not an exception for this season – will have the highest positions in the league.

Vatuvei to aid Warriors’ forward effort

first_imgStill without experienced prop Ben Matulino due to injury, and with his forwards having struggled at times to assert themselves in contests against the Knights and Storm, Kearney’s inclusion of the 109kg Vatuvei effectively gives the Warriors another middle forward to lean on early in tackle counts.Vatuvei replaces 22-year-old utility back Tuimoala Lolohea and will line up across the field from Ken Maumalo, with the pair giving the Warriors a combined 214kgs of bulk on the flanks.”[Manu] will bring a strong carry, he carries the ball pretty strong and I think the experience he brings with his game [is important],” Kearney said of Vatuvei, who played for the club’s reserve-grade side in the opening two rounds.”He has played over 200 games of NRL, he has done the business in the past.”He has done really well [in reserve grade], he didn’t get the opportunity to play any of the trials so the idea was to give him some game time and I am happy with that.”The Bulldogs have named five international forwards for the Round 3 encounter at Forsyth Barr Stadium, ensuring they will present a huge challenge for the youthful Warriors’ pack.Despite being ranked fifth in the NRL Telstra Premiership for metres gained after the first two weeks, 15-season veteran Jacob Lillyman told he believed his fellow big men had plenty more to offer.”There is always room for improvement, we can certainly step it up a level and we will try and do that this week,” Lillyman said.”A few of the young forwards have shown maturity beyond their years”Sammy [Lisone] and I have been on the bench and our goal over the last two weeks was to just try and bring some energy and lift the team a little bit, and I think we have done OK.”We know how tough the Bulldogs are, and their backs are to the wall a little bit.”They don’t go away… we are under no illusions, it’s going to be a really tough game.”Meanwhile Vatuvei will have fond memories of his only previous competitive game at Forsyth Barr Stadium, having scored a crucial try for the Kiwis in a 16-14 victory over England at the venue during the 2014 Four Nations.Now in his 14th season in the top flight, Vatuvei will line up against first-grade debutante Marcelo Montoya, who comes in for the injured Kerrod Holland.‌last_img read more
