Endowment Selling 4/10/2013 new

The business of penis enlargements through traditional medicine is booming in Johannesburg and Nigerians are leading the way with penis size, followed by Vendas and Tsongas who are also "well-endowed". 
That's according to respondents in a University of the Witswatersrand study that was presented at the university's Body Knowledge International Conference at the beginning of September. 
However, according to Nigerians, it's their sexual performance, rather than the size of their penises, that make them sought-after partners by South African women. 
One respondent said: "There's a saying in my country that you can put a small pepe [chilli pepper] in your mouth, but it can make you open your mouth for the next 30 or 40 minutes. Some penises are small, but what they do there is more than what the big one is doing." 

Yes, it sucks that Harvard bought up a bunch of property, didn't renew leases with commercial tenants, dug some holes that haven't been filled, and so on. But if Harvard had forged ahead on Allston, the spending would have required even more staffing cuts. There's an opportunity cost there as well; the University loses talent and experience, has to scale back activities or service standards have to drop, etc. To grossly simplify: it'd be like you having $7.5k in expenses after getting laid off, and having the savings to cover it - so no cars need to be sold. But then you decide to take that trip to Aruba you'd been planning, and generate $2k in credit card bills. Now you have to sell one of your cars. Which is OK, because your SO is working, but you're not. Now you get a job a few months later as the economy improves. You have no car to get to work, and because you missed a payment and you're technically unemployed / recently employed, your bank doesn't feel like lending you the dough. Oops. Building out the property Harvard acquired would've been like taking a trip to Aruba after getting laid off, and having to sell a car to do it.

“The renovation of the Carnegie Mansion will make design accessible to museumgoers with expanded gallery space, the restoration and preservation of historic rooms, innovative landscape design,” said Kate D. Levin, the cultural affairs commissioner for New York City. The museum began its capital campaign in 2006, hoping to raise $79 million for the renovation and $10 million for its endowment. The museum says it has more than 90 percent of the money so far.

Area organizations and businesses are gearing up for next week’s homecoming activities with “Paint the Town Blue.”

“This is a wonderful opportunity  for alumni and Sapulpa residents to show support for their undefeated Chieftains,” said Suzanne Shirey of the Sapulpa Area Chamber of Commerce.

Organizers encourage everyone to cheer the Chieftains to a Homecoming 2013 victory with the following events:

• City-Wide Window Decorating Contest - Sapulpa Chamber of Commerce encourages all businesses in Sapulpa to show the "Chieftain Strong" spirit.

Sapulpa Main Street Director Cindy McDonald said there will be be prizes for the best decorated windows and that it is open to all businesses in the city, not just in the Downtown area only.

Area retailers announced they will be selling merchandise to help promote team spirit.

If representatives are found to fall short in these KPIs, their transactions will come under more scrutiny; they could also lose their variable pay for serious infractions or if they run up several minor ones. A notable concession made by MAS was not to cap first year commissions payable to life insurance agents at 40 per cent of total commissions payable. This recommendation was unpopular with industry players, who argued that the income of financial advisers would be unduly affected, which would then create recruitment and talent retention problems.
MAS raised the cap to 55 per cent, a proportion that is current industry practice. The issue could be revisited in the future if the various measures are not effective at reining in errant advisers.
The review began in April last year. The panel announced its recommendations in January this year, and the public consultation took place from March to June.
Among other changes, educational requirements for financial advisers will be raised; some firms will have to cough up more capital.
The first awards from the fund will be granted for the 2014-15 academic year. One award each year will be reserved for a graduate student in history, reflecting the Niehoff family’s deep regard for scholarship in history. In the short run, UC will use the proceeds to close financial need gaps for academically meritorious students. 

“We appreciate that it is the will and wisdom of the Niehoff family to recommend that the direction of the awards will vary based on the needs of our students and UC’s strategic enrollment plan over time,” said President Ono.  

“We have many academically talented students both in our application pools and currently enrolled who have significant unmet need,” said Caroline Miller, Senior Associate Vice President and Vice Provost for Enrollment Management. “The flexibility of this fund will allow us to help meet that tremendous need.”

“That way we can build a graphical projection - many advisers call this cashflow analysis - of what a family’s future financial position might look like. This brings the numbers to life a bit. It would help Keith and Steph to understand how long that £475,000 might last, how much risk they might need to take with it and what is and isn’t realistic in terms of their future income needs and retirement plans.”
