The offer will be valid until 26 April 2009 but even customers whose insurance is due for renewal beyond the cut off date can benefit.RSA has introduced this offer to celebrate its position as sole provider of National Trust home and motor insurance policies, a partnership that is contracted to continue for the next four years.Thanks to RSA, National Trust members are now able to buy insurance cover through a variety of channels including the Trust’s website:www.nationaltrust.org.uk.The insurance products are available as a single combined policy or as separate policies. Buildings cover is insured up to £450,000 and contents covered for up to £55,000. Customers can also benefit from 24 hour emergency assistance and a personal customer manager.In addition to the 50% offer, RSA’s insurance product has been designed to support the National Trust’s dedication to protecting the environment. All customer communications will be printed on recycled paper and a donation will be made to the National Trust with every policy sold.Additionally, members who are already environmentally conscious and drive cars with a CO2 rating lower than 120g/km will be rewarded with a discount on their motor insurance. Home insurance discounts are offered to customers with properties with solar panels.Commenting on the offering, Andy Elkington, Partnerships Director of Affinity at RSA, said: “RSA is strongly committed to reducing its environmental impact, being the first carbon neutral insurer and a successful provider of green products such as discounts to drivers of hybrid cars. Given this, I am delighted that we can partner with an organisation such as the National Trust with which we share a common goal to protect the environment.“By providing this 50% discount to consumers in the current financial climate, our hope is that it will encourage more to take insurance with the National Trust and, in doing so, help safeguard the nation’s historic sites, coasts and countryside.”Lesley Lawrie, Corporate Partnership Manager for the National Trust added, “By choosing National Trust insurance, our supporters will not only be protecting their own homes and contents, but helping the Trust protect its hundreds of historic homes and buildings across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

June 25, 2020 /Sports News – Local Former Utah State Football Coach Phil Krueger Dies At Age 90 Robert Lovell Written by Tags: Phil Krueger/Utah State Aggies Football FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailLOGAN, Utah – Phil Krueger, who guided Utah State’s football team to back-to-back-to-back winning seasons in the 1970’s, died on Monday, June 22, at his home in Pembroke Pines, Fla. He was 90.Krueger enjoyed a four-decade career in collegiate and professional football, compiling a 31-22 record as the head coach at Fresno State (1964-65) and Utah State (1973-75). He held assistant coaching positions at Long Beach City College, Utah State, Illinois and USC. While with the Trojans (1966-70), he coached in four Rose Bowls, including winning a national championship in 1967.From 1973-75, Krueger was the Aggies’ head coach, compiling an overall record of 21-12 (.636), which included going 7-2 against BYU, Utah and Weber State in his three seasons.In 1976, when John McKay was named the inaugural head coach of the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Krueger joined his staff and coached offensive backs, linebackers and special teams for four years. Following the 1980 season, he moved into the team’s front office and was responsible for negotiating player contracts – he was known as a shrewd contract negotiator during a time when there was limited free agency and no salary cap.Krueger was named the Bucs’ general manager in 1991 and retired a year later. After moving to south Florida to be closer to his daughter, Kristi, football remained in Krueger’s blood as he worked three years as a consultant for the Kajima Deers, a professional football team in Tokyo, Japan.Krueger was a first lieutenant in the U.S. Army and a Korean War veteran, also earning the Bronze Star. He is survived by his wife of 59 years, Kathy; daughter, Kristi Krueger, a longtime newscaster at WPLG-TV in Miami, and son-in-law, Todd Templin, both of Pembroke Pines; grandson Troy Templin and wife Melissa Templin of Houston, Texas; and granddaughter Kelsie Templin of Fort Lauderdale.
LifeSiteNews 24 February 2015Britain’s House of Commons rejected a bill aiming to ban sex-selective abortion on Monday in a vote of 292-201.The lower chamber passed the bill at first reading on November 4, but yesterday lawmakers instead approved a measure calling for an inquiry into the prevalence of gender-based abortion in Wales, England, and Northern Ireland.Tory MP Fiona Bruce’s landmark Abortion (Sex-Selection) Bill sought to clarify “that nothing in section one of the Abortion Act 1967 allows a pregnancy to be terminated on the grounds of the sex of the unborn child.”Bruce’s bill was strongly opposed by labor unions and some Labor Party politicians on the grounds that bill would “divide communities.”A letter circulated to Labor MPs by the Trade Union Congress (TUC) said that banning sex selective abortions might leave women “vulnerable to domestic abuse,” and that “the amendment does not attempt to address the root causes of deeply entrenched gender discrimination but rather has divided communities.”https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/uk-parliament-rejects-ban-on-gendercide-abortions
Chelsea and Liverpool both want Vitesse Arnhem’s Ivorian striker Wilfried Bony, according to The Sun.The player’ agent claims Liverpool have made an approach and there is a 50% chance that Bony – dubbed the new Didier Drogba – will be on the move in January.Meanwhile, Manchester City are keeping a close eye on Raheem Sterling’s contract negotiations at Liverpool, according to the Daily Mail.It is claimed the Harlesden teenager’s advisers, who say he has not actually been made a concrete offer, are becoming increasingly irritated with Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers and feel he is trying to railroad Sterling into signing a new deal.City are said to be monitoring the situation and apparently could consider launching a bid in January if his future is not resolved by then.The Daily Mirror have a similar story, saying the Sterling camp were amazed when Rodgers declared that the player should sign a new contract in what could be seen as an attempt to bully him into agreeing terms.And The Sun quote a source as saying: “How can Raheem hurry and sign when there isn’t anything to sign?”This page is regularly updated.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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
23 July 2007The Gauteng housing department, Ekurhuleni metropolitan municipality and banking group Absa launched a R1.8-billion mixed-use housing project – the largest in the province to date – in Benoni, east of Johannesburg, on the weekend.Like the Cosmo City development north-west of Johannesburg, the Chief Albert Luthuli Housing Park will be a mixed-income development, featuring both bonded and government-subsidised houses as well as amenities such as parks, clinics, schools and police and fire stations.Sipho Mashinini, director of Absa property development arm Absa Devco, told Business Day that 10 300 houses would be built over the next three years, with the bonded houses expected to cost between R180 000 and R300 000.Speaking at Sunday’s launch, Gauteng Premier Mbhazima Shilowa said the project aimed to provide quality, affordable housing “in an environment that allows integration across economic and racial divides and closer to opportunities for economic activities.”Building social cohesion in South Africa, Shilowa said, required a break from “apartheid spatial planning that separates people according to wealth and colour and dumps the poor in places far from areas of economic opportunities and social advancement.”The launch of the project coincided with the 40th anniversary of the death of Albert Luthuli, president-general of the African National Congress from December 1952 until his death in 1967, and recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1960.SouthAfrica.info reporter and BuaNews Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo material

Leading the side for the first time, India captain Gautam Gambhir on Sunday lavished praise on centurion Virat Kohli for scripting a 40-run win over New Zealand in the first ODI, which also helped the hosts take a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.”Virat batted exceptionally well today. After losing the toss, our plan was that someone needs to go and get a hundred and he did exactly the same. He was good with his shot selection. Overall, I am satisfied with the performance of the team,” said Gambhir, who also scored a quickfire 38 at the top to give the team a sound start.”Both batsmen and bowlers chipped in with useful contributions. R Ashwin bowled brilliantly, pacers Nehra and Sreesanth were equally good. Virat, Yuvraj and other batsmen were also good. We hope to continue the momentum in the fixtures ahead,” said the dashing opener.Asked about captaining the side in the absence of regular captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who has been rested for the series ahead of the tough tour of South Africa starting next month, Gambhir said, “Leading the side was a great feeling and I am happy to start with a win.”Man of the Match Kohli, fresh from his back-to-back centuries in Ranji Trophy, struck a neat and chanceless 105, an innings which was laced with 10 boundaries. This was his second consecutive and fourth overall one-day ton.The Delhi-lad said he has brought some changes to his aggressive style of batting and is now concentrating more on the singles and twos.advertisement”It feels good to get a century. I just want to make the most of my outing. After the Sri Lanka series bad patch, I got enough backing from the team and coach to deliver the goods and, these days, I am more into analysing my game.”I am concentrating on holding one end and let others do their bit. I am converting more singles and doubles these days. It’s good to score runs and help your team post a good total on the board,” he said.Meanwhile, New Zealand captain Ross Taylor said losing three-four wickets in the middle stage of the innings cost them the game.”Everything did not go right for us today. In the middle stage, we lost three-four wickets that made a lot of difference. It’s a disappointing result for us and we hope to pick up from here,” Taylor said.”We came pretty close in the end but overall efforts seemed to be little short. Virat batted well and took the game away from us. We hope to play better in the series ahead,” he added.With inputs from PTI
