TPR used enforcement powers 43700 times to tackle pensions noncompliance in Q2

By on September 15, 2019

first_imgThe Pensions Regulator (TPR) used its enforcement powers for pensions auto-enrolment non-compliance 43,700 times between April and June 2018, compared to 35,862 times last quarter, according to research by TPR.Its Compliance and enforcement quarterly bulletin: April-June 2018 report, which provides information on the powers TPR has used, as well as on the cases it has been involved in, also noted that 12,220 fixed penalty notices were issued between April and June 2018, which is a 9.5% increase on the 11,156 fixed penalty notices that were issued last quarter.Since TPR began recording its compliance and enforcement action in July 2012, a total of 55,556 fixed penalty notices, which are fixed £400 fines issued to employers if they do not comply with statutory notices, or if there is sufficient evidence of a breach of law, were issued.The research also found that 2,498 escalating penalty notices had been issued between April and June 2018, out of a 12,037 total between July 2012 and June 2018. An escalating penalty notice is a daily fine between £50 and £10,000, depending on how many employees an organisation has, which is issued when an employer fails to comply with a statutory notice.Between April and June 2018, 27,219 compliance notices, which target auto-enrolment non-compliance of employer duties, were issued; this is the most in any three-month period, and amounts to an average of one compliance notice issued every five minutes. This creates a total of 124,825 compliance notices between July 2012 and June 2018.A total of 1,495 unpaid contribution notices were issued in April to June 2018; these remedy a late or non-payment due to a qualifying pension scheme. From July 2012 to June 2018, 7,487 unpaid contribution notices were issued.The report also confirmed that TPR used its powers to take action against trustees 25 times between April and June 2018 for failing to complete a scheme return on time. TPR used its information gathering powers 31 times between April and June 2018 and 162 trustees were appointed to run schemes and protect members’ benefits.Nicola Parish, executive director of frontline regulation at TPR, said: “Our actions over the quarter demonstrate how we are continuing to develop as an organisation to be clearer, quicker and tougher. We’re using powers for the first time and working closely with other organisations to better protect members of pension schemes.”last_img read more

Reminder Magazines Just One Element of the Overall Brand

By on September 14, 2019

first_imgAnd of course, he’s right. Magazines and newspapers, once the center of our publishing universe, now are only one part of the bigger branded experience. This isn’t a new concept but it becomes a more solid reality every day.Coming from an online editor, perhaps I should have rephrased the question, especially when asking the former top editor of a magazine for marketers. Duh, Jason.Anyway, for those of you who actually were wondering what Bloom’s thoughts are on his Ad Age experience and on the industry, here’s what he wrote:I feel proud to have been part of the team that took it from being a newspaper to a genuinely multi-faceted publication. As to the marketing and media business, there’s almost too much to say to sum up my thoughts in a sentence or two, but we all know it’s going through a massive transition. Marketers are going to keep shifting to more direct, engaging and measurable ways of conversing with their audience and they’re going to need to deliver things audiences really want or even need—as I’ve said before the marketing is going to become a service, and in some ways even a product. The media owners and agencies who are going to succeed will be the ones that help them figure out how best to do that—and how to charge for all their work on that challenge. More on this topic Jonah Bloom Out as Ad Age Editor Former Breaking Media EIC Jonah Bloom Joins Kirshenbaum Bond Senecal & Partners Overheard at AMC Re-Making the Magazine Industry Ad Age Editor: ‘We Like It When You Pick a Place to Moor Our Yachts’ Wired Celebrates 15 Years in StyleJust In PE Firm Acquires Majority Stake in Industry Dive Four More Execs Depart SourceMedia in Latest Restructuring Meredith Corp. Makes Digital-Side Promotions | People on the Move The Atlantic Names New Global Marketing Head | People on the Move TIME Names New Sales, Marketing Leads | People on the Move Editor & Publisher Magazine Sold to Digital Media ConsultantPowered by Crain Communications on Thursday announced that Jonah Bloom, longtime editor of trade publication Advertising Age, was leaving the company to serve as CEO and editor-in-chief of budding blogging network Breaking Media—home to Above the Law and Dealbreaker. Following Bloom is Ad Age senior editor Matt Creamer, who will take the executive editor post at Breaking Media.When I heard the news, I shot Bloom an e-mail to get his take on his departure—what about the opportunity at Breaking Media lured him away from Ad Age. Another question I asked was: Looking back at your time at Ad Age, what are your thoughts about the magazine? The industry?The first part of Bloom’s response was, well, somewhat snippy: Without meaning to sound defensive, Ad Age isn’t a magazine. Sure, that’s one way in which it delivers weekly analysis—a way that’s still valued by many senior executives—but a huge proportion of what it does today it does digitally.last_img read more

Publishing Team to Launch Regional Food Wine Magazine

By on

first_imgThe owners of a book publishing business are aiming to combine two publishing markets under one new magazine. Tapping into the increasingly popular food magazine market, Northeast Flavor will cover culinary and wine-related topics aimed specifically for readers in the Northeastern region of the U.S. The self-funded project is the brainchild of Spencer Smith and Jean Kerr, owners of culinary book publishing outfit Smith-Kerr Associates. Smith will serve as Northeast Flavor’s publisher while Kerr, a cookbook author who previously has served as editor of Taste of the Seacoast magazine, will head up editorial as editor-in-chief.Initially launching in November as a quarterly publication, Northeast Flavor’s distribution model includes subscription, newsstand and “carefully selected” bonus distribution. Beyond the print magazine, the brand will be made up of a Web site and selection of mobile apps, as well as presences on Twitter and Facebook. Smith says the plan is to take the magazine bimonthly within the next year. “Advertising in the food and wine sector has held up very well through the recession and reaction from our distribution and advertising base has been very positive,” he tells FOLIO:. “So we are encouraged by that. And if you can successfully publish in a recession, you’re well-positioned for the rebound.”Not only weighing in against the growing food magazine market, Northeast Flavor also will have regional mainstays like Yankee magazine and Maine’s Down East among its competitors. “The city magazines are all competition but none are regional food and wine magazines,” says Smith. “We have local and national content and advertising.”Although he declined to say how much money he and Kerr put into Northeast Flavor to get it launched, Smith says they expect to have absorbed the start-up costs by the second issue.last_img read more

Lucky Mag Separates from Condé Nast as The Lucky Group

By on

first_imgBeachMint, a vertically integrated retailer that also owns the JewelMint and StyleMint brands, has CFDA-winning The Row designers Mary Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen as co-chairs of its advisory board and a slew of investors including Goldman Sachs, Pritzker Group and Trinity Ventures, among others.“By deploying these resources and shifting the focus of our staff to primarily support a commerce platform for Lucky,” Berman notes in a statement, “we will quickly be able to bring to market a best-in-class shopping destination that delivers enhanced opportunities for advertises and retail partners.”Lucky has been trending down with advertisers over the past year with total ad pages dropping 6.81% to 412.95 from 443.15 year-to-date 2014 over 2013, as reported in min’s monthly boxscores. In August alone, total ad pages fell 9.97% to 54.92 versus 61 pages in 2013.While e-commerce shopping is nothing new, sites like Net-a-Porter, Editorialist and others pursue print magazine or catalogue projects to supply consumers with supplementary editorial content, Lucky, which originates from that editorial perspective, does start with a leg up. Condé Nast announced Monday the creation of a new joint venture between its Lucky brand and e-commerce platform BeachMint called The Lucky Group. This decision to join Lucky’s print and digital assets with anoutside party is new to the company and bound to raise speculationabout the relationship’s future.Set to debut in early 2015, the partnership will team Lucky’s content and editorial voice with an e-commerce platform creating a new online shopping destination targeted at brand loyalists and BeachMint’s 8 million fashion-focused subscribers.“We’re fulfilling the brand promise to create the ultimate shopping resource and provide advertisers with the ability to truly integrate at every point within the customer journey,” Condé Nast president Robert A. Sauerberg says in the announcement.BeachMint CEO and co-founder Josh Berman will head The Lucky Group partnership as CEO alongside Lucky’s editor-in-chief Eva Chen and general manager Gillian Gorman Round who will be the Group’s chief creative officer and president, respectively.The Lucky Group spin off will absorb all of Lucky’s print, digital and mobile content, as well as the brand’s editorial and business teams. Upon closing the deal, all staffers are expected to join the new company, including Condé Nast artistic director Anna Wintour who will serve as an advisor.last_img read more

Oklahoma Awards Funds to Enhance Local Bases

By on September 13, 2019

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR The Oklahoma Strategic Military Planning Commission (OSMPC) last week approved a $180,000 grant for a concrete apron with built-in tie-down points at Enid Woodring Regional Airport, a project intended to support Vance Air Force Base.The apron, which would be used to park military or civilian aircraft that remain overnight at the airport, would be built between the airport terminal and the joint use civilian-military hangar. Now, aircraft must be parked on an aging ramp far from the terminal if there isn’t any room in the hangar, reported Enid News.“We have to have a place to park them without putting them on the south ramp away from the terminal building,” said Mike Cooper, military liaison for the city of Enid and chairman of the OSMPC. Vance is about 8 miles from the airport.Enid also plans to receive about $300,000 from the Federal Aviation Administration for the project.The commission approved funding for four other projects as well:road access improvement at an alternate gate for Altus AFB;an enhanced use lease project at an industrial park for a facility for the McAlester Army Ammunition Plant;road access improvement at Tinker AFB; androad access improvements to help the Air National Guard unit based at Tulsa International Airport attract the F-35.All of the allocations, which are subject to approval of the state budget by the Oklahoma Legislature later this session, were in the $180,000 range, according to the story.“The priority is on the F-35, but at the same time we are still keeping focus on everyone else working their protection and enhancement, increasing the mission and cutting costs,” said Cooper.last_img read more

So it comes as little surprise that, in developing the new music video for the title track from his acclaimed 2017 Greg Kurstin-co-produced album Colors, Beck would yet again enlist the help of some of his famous friends.Combining early Great Depression-era formalwear and backing performers clad in painted morph suits more reminiscent of a late 2000s interpretive dance routine, the video sees Beck and co-star Alison Brie wander through a carefully choreographed series of musical escapades resplendent with bold colors touched up with psychedelic CGI flourishes.The “Colors” video comes by way of esteemed film director Edgar Wright, best known for directing Shaun Of The Dead and Baby Driver – the latter of which earned him his first career GRAMMY nomination for Best Compilation Soundtrack For Visual Media at the 60th GRAMMY Awards.Brie meanwhile, is best known for her television roles on “Mad Men” and “Community,” as well as her respected acting chops displayed in her appearances in recent films such as The Disaster Artist and The Post.Beck is currently touring North America in support of Colors, and information regarding tickets and full show dates can be found on his official website.Getting The Latest Music News Just Got Easier.

Polestar 2 vs Tesla Model 3 vs Jaguar IPace vs Mercedes EQC

By on

first_imgThe techInfotainment and driver interfaces are becoming increasingly complex and increasingly important in today’s car market. Traditional gauges are going the way of the dodo bird and are being replaced by screens of ever-increasing size and different placements. The Model 3’s massive center screen has been polarizing since the car’s introduction, while the Jaguar’s dash is more traditional. How do these compare to the Polestar and the Mercedes?The Polestar 2’s infotainment system is based around Google’s Android platform to a degree that the automotive world hasn’t seen before. It’s not clear how customizable the system will be, whether it’s like the Android systems running on phones or more closed-off as is more traditional with automotive systems. We do know that the system will run on a vertically oriented 11-inch touchscreen. There is a separate digital driver instrument binnacle.The Jaguar’s Touch Pro Duo system is similar to what you’d find in other Jags as well as the Range Rover Velar. It’s slow to respond to commands and takes forever to switch between screens. It’s not a terrible looking system, but it’s probably the worst of this bunch.The Mercedes EQC may not be out yet, but it’s infotainment system sure is. The EQC will run a version of MBUX which we’ve already experienced in the new A-Class as well as the new G-Wagen. It’s easy to use, relatively snappy and looks super futuristic thanks to the massive dash-spanning screen. We’re not entirely sure what special tweaks, if any, MBZ will make for its EV, but MBUX gets a thumbs up from us.Finally, we come to Tesla’s Model 3 and its vast landscape-oriented center screen. The interior of the Model 3 is pretty spartan, having ditched all physical controls that aren’t required by law. Some people have a hard time adjusting to doing everything with the center screen, but we found ourselves adapting quickly to it and, to Tesla’s credit, the system is smooth, clear and quick to respond to inputs. Tesla’s music player is kind of crappy, but the rest of the system sets a high bar for the industry. 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value Mar 8 • VW is still ‘100 percent’ investigating a pickup truck for the US 2020 Mercedes-Benz EQC hits the road ahead of its CES debut Tesla Model 3 barrels through the snow in Track Mode Comments The powertrainThe Polestar 2 isn’t messing around with any weird motor or battery layouts. It’s packing two electric motors that produce a combined 408 horsepower and 487 pound-feet of torque, and a 78-kilowatt-hour battery pack that as a structural part of the vehicle’s floor. Polestar is targeting a vehicle range of around 275 miles under US testing.The Tesla Model 3, by comparison, is available in a bunch of different range and performance variants but the one that most closely matches the Polestar 2’s price is the all-wheel drive, long-range model which, when optioned comparatively, sits at around $56,900 before any incentives. The AWD Model 3’s dual motors put out around 350 horsepower combined and the car’s 75-kWh battery offers 308 miles of range.Jaguar’s I-Pace lags behind the Polestar and just ekes out the Tesla in terms of power, with 394 electric ponies on tap and a very robust 512 pound-feet of torque available. Where it really suffers is in the range department. The Jag is only good for around 234 miles despite packing a 90-kWh battery.Mercedes’ EQC is arguably the highest-performance model in our group with a pair of motors delivering 402 horsepower and 564 pound-feet of torque. That performance comes with a price, though, and we’re not talking money. Mercedes estimates that the EQC will have an EPA range of around 200 miles, which puts it squarely at the back of the pack, despite having an 80-kWh battery. Polestar Jaguar Mercedes-Benz Tesla 50 Photos 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better Share your voice Though many automakers have launched cars that sort of compete with the all-important Tesla Model 3, none of them have exactly matched that car’s formula. The Polestar 2, however — a fully electric four-door from Volvo’s spinoff brand — has Tesla’s baby squarely in its sights.But Tesla isn’t the only automaker that should be worried about the new kid on the block. With its $55,000 starting price, 275-mile range and slick, Google-based infotainment system, the Polestar 2 brings a lot to the table. The conclusionGiven what we know so far about the Polestar 2, it’s looking like it will represent decent value for money in the face of stiff competition. All of Polestar’s unique design touches combined with the super unique (and we’re sure polarizing) styling could help carve it a niche in an increasingly crowded market.  Geneva Motor Show 2019 Tesla Mercedes-Benz Volvo Jaguar Geneva Motor Show 2019 Apr 17 • The 2020 Jaguar XE gets its first major visual refresh 4center_img 66 Photos 2019 Jaguar I-Pace: A spunky electric cat Mar 7 • New Peugeot 208 debuts i-Cockpit with 3D HUD Combo dashboard See All Electric Cars SUVs Crossovers Sedans 30 Photos 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous • 50 Photos Tags More From Roadshow reading • Polestar 2 vs. Tesla Model 3 vs. Jaguar I-Pace vs. Mercedes EQC: How do they stack up? 2021 Polestar 2 is Sweden’s sleek Tesla rival Mar 7 • The Ferrari F8 Tributo is the last of the nonhybrid V8s The competitionThe Tesla Model 3 has been king of the midrange electric vehicles pretty much since Tesla figured out how to build them en masse. There have been others that have sought to take the Model 3’s crown, but none have sold with the same kind of vigor nor pushed the envelope quite as far as Tesla’s people’s car.The next viable competitor for the Polestar 2 would be Jaguar’s I-Pace SUV. In some ways, it’s superior to the Tesla but in others — most notably sales — it lags pretty far behind. It’s still a fundamentally solid car for the class and presents as a fun-to-drive and nice-to-be-in package for the base model’s $65,900 asking price.Mercedes-Benz’ forthcoming EQC electric sport utility vehicle isn’t available for purchase yet, but we’ve spent some time in it and have all of its specs handy, so we think it may put up a good fight against the electric Swede.
