One of Oxford University’s most exclusive gentlemen’s clubs will finally fling its doors open to women – but only in the evenings.Vincent’s, whose all-male members are selected for excelling in sport, has decided to open up its premises to members of the female equivalent, Atalanta, along with female sports teams. While the club will retain its strictly all-male membership policy, Atalanta members will be able to use the club in the evenings without being signed in by a Vincent’s member.The lunch policy of the club, situated on St Edward’s Street, is unchanged and members of Atalanta’s are invited to have lunch at the club only on Saturdays.Ellaine Gelman, President of Atalanta’s, acknowledged that it was a big step having access to Vincent’s since Atalanta’s has never had its own clubhouse.She said, “this is an exciting time to be a member of Atalanta’s club – we have so many things in the pipeline. I think this partnership will be great for both clubs.”She stressed that Atalanta’s and Vincent’s would remain autonomous, “Atalanta’s will remain a separate club – we are very proud of our history and our identity – much like the Vincent’s members.”A committee member of Vincent’s commented that while the decision does nothing to reduce the exclusivity of Vincent’s, it will increase the club’s business.He said, “from Vinnie’s point of view it increases the use of the club and it gets the girls’ equivalent of Vinnie’s more involved. The general idea is to get more people using Vinnie’s – the only difference is that girls are allowed to come up without signing in.”Jess Barnes, ex-secretary of Atalanta’s, also warmly praised the decision, “I think it’s fantastic that Vincent’s now welcomes Atalanta’s members and female sports teams.”She commented that this was “exactly the sort of change Atalanta’s has been looking for – such cooperation with Vincent’s club is a “brilliant development.”She added that Atalanta’s members were very much looking forward to making the most of this new opportunity.Atalanta’s was set up in 1992 with the aim of promoting women’s sports. Women are eligible to join if they have received a blue, half blue, or colours after competing in a Varsity match.Vincent’s was founded in 1863 with the aim of bringing together the leading members of the University.

Indonesians could find it difficult to buy garlic during the Ramadan holiday season this year if the country fails to get imports from China soon, an official has said.Food Resilience Agency (BKP) head Agung Hendriadi said that the garlic stock had already fallen to 80,000 tons as of Thursday. With monthly garlic consumption of some 46,000 tons, current stocks would only suffice until April.So far, the Trade Ministry has only issued import permit letters for 62,000 tons out of 103,000 tons recommended by the Agriculture Ministry. Agung urged the Trade Ministry to issue a permit for at least 80,000 tons of garlic to fulfil domestic needs. Read also: Rising garlic price cannot be blamed on coronavirusIndonesia has long depended on China, the world’s leading garlic producer, to fulfil its domestic garlic consumption. In 2019 alone, Indonesia imported around 465,000 tons of garlic with an import value of nearly $530 million, Statistics Indonesia (BPS) data showed.Indonesia is only able to produce 85,000 tons per year or only 10 percent of annual garlic needs, with the remaining 90 percent fulfilled by imports.The Business Competition Supervisory Commission (KPPU) commissioner Guntur Saragih also voiced concern on Feb. 14 but said the rising prices could not be blamed on the coronavirus.He instead blamed slow import realization for the scarcity, which he said had already happened before the virus broke out. The KPPU said that the government had issued import recommendations for more than 100,000 tons, 60,000 tons of which would be used to ensure supplies until the Ramadhan holidays – which were unrealized as of Feb. 14.”It’s a problem when imports are done late. Supply will certainly thin out, thus automatically shifting [prices],” Guntur said. However, his team’s investigation had yet to ascertain whether importers were intentionally holding back imports to push up prices.This is not the first time that garlic prices have skyrocketed. Last year, garlic prices spiked to more than Rp 80,000 per kg due to import recommendations not being issued until April 2019.Topics : “We are also trying to [import] from other countries like India and Thailand that also produce garlic,” he told reporters after a discussion with the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kadin) in Jakarta on Thursday.The latest import effort aims to maintain supply and avoid further price increases amid the coronavirus outbreak. The virus has been blamed for the diminishing garlic supply from China, thereby spiking the commodity’s price in Indonesia.The price currently stands at a national average of Rp 46,600 (US$3.35) per kilogram, almost double the usual Rp 25,000 to Rp 30,000 per kg, according to the Information Center for Strategic Food Prices (PIHPS).“Insya Allah [God Willing], we hope that the coronavirus will go away soon so that we can rejoice once again,” Agung added.
Last year the mandatory fund had a market share of 52%.Meanwhile, NLB Nov Penziski Fond AD Skopje, which runs the country’s other mandatory fund as well as a voluntary fund, was last month put up for sale by its owner, state-owned Nova Ljubljanska Banka, Slovenia’s largest bank.Prior to EBRD’s involvement, Prva had already expanded beyond Slovenia.In Serbia it has a 60% share in DDOR Garant, which operates two voluntary pension funds, while in Kosovo it operates the Fondi Siloveno-Kosovar i Pensioneve supplementary pension fund.The Slovenian pensions and insurance management subsidiary Prva osebna zavarovalnica last year expanded its suite of pension funds following the introduction of life-cycle funds.Overall, according to the EBRD, Prva Group now has more than €735m in pension assets under management and nearly 400,000 policy holders, while its Slovenian subsidiary holds the biggest market share (26.45%) in local voluntary pensions insurance provision.EBRD’s other pension fund management investments have included a stake in the Russian mandatory provider European Pension Fund, which it exited in 2013 when the fund was acquired by the BIN Group (since renamed Safmar Financial Group), and which has since been merged with three of the group’s other pension funds into NPF Safmar.One of the bank’s more recent pensions ventures was an equity investment in a voluntary pension fund management company in Republika Srpska, one of the two entities of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH).According to the EBRD’s website, the new company will be BiH’s first provider of voluntary pension fund and asset management services. The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) has exited its investment in Prva Group, one of Slovenia’s – and south-east Europe’s – biggest insurance and pensions providers.At the end of March the bank sold its 20% stake for an undisclosed amount to DEJ doo, a Ljubljana-based company that already held just over 50% in Prva.According to the EBRD, it originally invested in Prva in February 2007 in order to further its market expansion and strengthen corporate governance.Later that year Prva’s subsidiary KB First Pension Company won one of two Macedonian mandatory pension fund licences, and subsequently set up a voluntary fund.

photo from Madison Regatta Facebook pageMadison, IN— The Madison Regatta, known as one of Indiana’s treasured yearly events was finally added to the list of sporting events affected by COVID-19 (Coronavirus). At Wednesday’s board meeting, Regatta President Matt True and the Board of Directors voted to postpone the 2020 Madison Gold Cup Regatta and the 3rd annual Roostertail Music Festival by one year to July 1 – 4, 2021. After consideration of other potential dates in 2020, it was determined that our best course of action would be to postpone.The decision was not made lightly according to President Matt True, whom also serves on the Indiana State Festival Association board. He explained “Event organizers are all being faced with the same questions and unknowns as we are. Being on the ISFA has allowed me to expand my knowledge of other events around the state, and what they are facing. Making this announcement to postpone the 70th anniversary of the Regatta raises feelings of disappointment and frustration, but it’s all about safety first. We truly have to put our energy into 2021 planning, and we have the best team to do so.”Race and Music fans that purchased 2020 tickets can expect an email indicating ticket transfer over to the 2021 event dates, July 1-4.
