Data are for calendar years with these exceptions: Starting inaccounting rules required insurance companies to value the equity securities they hold at market rather than at the lower of cost or market, which was previously the requirement. In this table, Berkshire's results through have been restated to conform to the changed rules.
And why a reporter should be reinstated after she was fired for using the C-word in a story … surely truth a defence? But first … The sour taste of the Commonwealth Games lingers on, long after the athletes have departed either for home or for the hills.
We now learn that the five executives in charge of what has been a dismal organisational effort which has brought international disdain on the event are to receive hundreds of thousands of dollars in bonuses. One can only wonder what they would have been awarded had they actually done their jobs somewhat more effectively.
But the stand-out clown prince of the whole shebang can only be the Cheshire Cat face of the games, Peter Dentures Beattie. That earned him a very special medal from an incensed Bentley. Then Adele The Impaler Young had a little blub about how nasty people were to her on Facebook … really, dear?
Cannot imagine why, pet. And then moving into the big league this week, we had, as aforementioned, the smugly grinning wiseacre Peter Beattie describing those who thought the Games closing ceremony was less than perfect as whingers.
What affect this interesting government policy will have on our new stadium and ticket prices for same is worth deep contemplation. Hopping Mad It has long been said that those who do not know left from right do not know right from wrong.
Even just a few decades ago, nuns and priests writing a chairmans report to shareholders forcing left handed students to write and generally favour their right hands.
One trusts that the surgeons removed the correct leg. This sloppiness also shows how News Ltd betrays its own staff. That betrayal has resulted in the Townsville Bulletin readers being the ones crucified. He is perhaps best known in North Queensland as the coordinator of the invaluable defence force response to Cyclone Yasi in That is why it truly distressing to see such a distinguished person being so cynically used as a political pawn and bandaid measure to hoodwink an alarmed electorate.
He is to report directly to the Premier. Of all the insulting tripe that this Premier has served up to the Townsville community, this is up there with the most egregious.
Maj-Gen Smith inadvertently gave the game away himself when appointed, the local media: Those words describe precisely — and precisely is the precise word in this instance — why we elect local state MPs — it is a virtual job description for their most vital role in earning our trust, not to mention our money.
But there can be no mistake that he is no more than a paid Labor appointment to a nonsense position, tasked with doing the job of the three elected Labor state members covering the city.
That he may, in the end, do it well, is irrelevant. Or did they — and this is the response we have got from a busted-arse premier running a busted arse government? Good luck, Maj-Gen, but no matter what you come up with, do not expect any real action any time soon, you and your ideas will be quickly subsumed into the party political mindset that is paralysing this state.
This country for that matter. Kiwi Capers … and Capes That travelling trough on wheels, the Commonwealth Heads Of State meeting in London, has again proved to be a mainly pointless hootenanny for the wide variety of blood-sucking burdens o the public purse from around the globe, and from the local palaces royal.
But some questioned whether it was dignified to wear such an item to such an occasion. Look at this … It is clear that such frippery of outmoded cultural dress and carefully stitched finery is undignified for such an exalted occasion. But Jacinda looked elegant and commanding, just love the cloak.
Now there are calls for her to be reinstatedon the very reasonable grounds that the Daily Mail did not offer the proper supervision to a junior reporter by not employing enough sub-editors to catch the offending material.
As The Magpie said at the time, it was ironic that the one time any reporter at the Daily Mail told the truth, they were fired. And indeed, the old bird failed to see the problem, the full quote of the offending passage accurately reflects the reality of such programs, even if in a colourfully colloquial way.
But most people who were educated at a high-school level know these vapid cunts only go on the shows to find mediocre Instagram fame and make a living promoting teeth whiteners and unnecessary cosmetic procedures.
