Whilst conventional/breakbulk freight was down by 15 percent to nearly 17 million tonnes last year, after an exceptional year in 2007, the port authority has seen no reduction in volumes of out-of-gauge, over dimensional and heavy lift cargoes as yet; reporting 60 percent growth in 2008 compared to 2007. The figures for the first nine months were excellent, and while the last quarter clearly showed the effects of the downturn in the world economy, the port of Antwerp continued to do relatively well.As a result, Antwerp was able to gain market share within the top three ports in the Hamburg – Le Havre range (the other two being Rotterdam and Hamburg). The figures show that last year more than one hundred million tonnes of containerised freight was handled for the first time, or 8.6 million teu.The port authority expects that the general trend over the past three months will continue during the first half of 2009. According to a port authority statement, it will be difficult to equal the second quarter of 2008 druing which freight was diverted to Antwerp as a result of a dock strike in Le Havre06

EIGHT days ago, they were calling it the Week from Hell.The three-game run that would finally see Spurs crumble, as their lack of signings finally came home to roost.6 Mauricio Pochettino has helped Spurs defy doubters and injury worries – to leave them with bigger dreams than just a top-four finishCredit: Getty Images – GettyA spell which would see the first cracks in a stretched-to-the-limit squad as Premier League battles with Chelsea and Arsenal sandwiched a must-win Champions League game with Inter Milan.Instead, they go into today’s North London derby with two wins in the bag already, spirits and confidence rarely higher and dreams starting to stretch simply beyond the top four.It would have been a stunning start under normal circumstances.Under the circumstances Mauricio Pochettino has had to contend with, it is truly remarkable.6 Tottenham chief Mauricio Pochettino goes head to head with Unai Emery after his rivals impressive start as Arsenal chief this seasonCredit: Getty Images – GettyArsenal vs Tottenham: Kick-off time, TV channel, live stream and team news ahead of the first North London Derby of 2018/19That lack of signings, having nine senior stars involved for the duration of the World Cup and eight various injuries so far as a consequence.Problems on and off the field for keeper Hugo Lloris and, of course, that ongoing stadium issue . . . put all that together and Pochettino is more miracle worker than manager.And throughout it all the Argentine has handled himself with a dignity to put many of his peers to shame.Yes, Jose, that most definitely does include you.6 Keeper Hugo Lloris has had problems on and off the pitch but Spurs keep thrivingCredit: Getty – ContributorThere have been no tantrums at how he has been let down by those above him, for all he would be well justified.Even when he has had a little gripe — like how the recruitment policy affected his selection policy ahead of the Inter game — it has been done quietly.Even then it was “It’s in the club’s hands, not only in mine, we share the responsibility.”Even then he didn’t publicly take a pop at chairman Daniel Levy.6 Daniel Levy has escaped public criticism from Spurs chief Mauricio PochettinoCredit: ReutersA far cry from one ex-Tottenham chief’s throw-Levy-under-the-bus condemnation a few years back when he didn’t get the players he wanted.In January 2012, Harry Redknapp told the world he wanted Carlos Tevez and Gary Cahill but had to settle for Ryan Nelsen and Louis Saha. Five months later he was sacked.There’s no danger of Levy taking aim at Poch. He should be giving him a medal for all he’s done and the fact he will never have a more loyal manager.Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino grateful to Arsenal boss Unai Emery for recommending him to Valencia previously Two hallmarks of a top boss are whether he improves players and whether they enjoy playing for him.On both counts the answer with Pochettino is a resounding yes.The likes of Moussa Sissoko and Juan Foyth prove the former — and virtually the whole squad the latter.Bookies rarely form a market on who will be Manager of the Year but if they did, Pep Guardiola would be hot favourite.Unai Emery and Maurizio Sarri would be up there after their great starts, while Jurgen Klopp’s Prem run — despite his European flop — would also put him in the reckoning.most read in footballBRO MESSAGEBobby Charlton’s touching tribute to Jack revealed as he misses funeral serviceFRESH OUTFITMicah Richards pokes fun at Roy Keane backstage at Sky Sports studiosFALL OF TROYDeeney calls Sky reporter ‘cheeky b******’ after he asks about retirementSHOTS FIREDDenis Irwin’s son trolls Liverpool fans with savage Steven Gerrard tweetPicturedC’MON THE LADSRamos’ becomes dad again as wife gives birth to FOURTH son Maximo AdrianoVideoROY MEANKeane says ‘that’s why they never win anything’ as Villa celebrate staying upYet all of them are either working with already assembled all-star casts, or been given crazy money to recruit top-level players.Poch has had none of that.You could argue he’s not even really had a fair slice of luck.It’s why he is the outstanding candidate as the Premier League’s Manager of the Year approaching the halfway stage.And it’s why Levy must pray he doesn’t finally get sick of all the problems, should the likes of Manchester United come calling next summer.Premier League matchweek 14 preview including Arsenal v Tottenham and Liverpool v EvertonKLOPP IS MYTH-ING THE BOATTHREE away games, no points, five shots on target and one goal from open play.The stats of a side in a relegation fight, stuck in a rut, with confidence at rock bottom?Well, you would think so but this is Liverpool on the road in their Champions League group.Wednesday’s defeat at Paris Saint-Germain has them needing to beat Napoli 1-0, or by two clear goals, or last term’s runners-up are out.They may be unbeaten in the Prem — and are the likeliest to be second to Manchester City come May — but Europe has been a calamity.6 Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp should be under pressure than he seems after three Champions League away lossesCredit: PA:Empics SportJurgen Klopp was right in pointing out PSG’s embarrassing play-acting, especially that from show-pony Neymar.But it wasn’t why they lost. More relevant might be his odd decision to split the central defensive axis of Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk.It might be why the midfield held off, rather than pressing high and creating chance after chance like last year.Klopp has done much good in his three years, but Liverpool were hardly dull under Brendan Rodgers, who went closer than anyone to end a title wait that is now more than a quarter of a century.The questions are no more than a whisper at the moment but another trophy-less season and those who reckon he’s more myth than hit may have a point after all.Jose Mourinho smashes water bottles on the sidelines as Manchester United score injury time goal against Young Boys in the Champions LeagueRASH TO BLAST JOSE OVER MARCUS MISSFEBRUARY: Raheem Sterling misses a sitter against Burnley.

President Jacob Zuma and President Ian Khama met in Gabarone, Botswana, to discuss political and economic relations between the two countries.(Image: GCIS) South Africa and Botswana signed a memorandum of understanding to promote trade and investment between the two countries.(Image: Wilma den Hartigh) MEDIA CONTACTS • Mac Maharaj, The Presidency +27 79 879 3203 RELATED ARTICLES • National development plan unveiled • Zuma address: SA wants job focus • No stopping Africa’s growth: Zuma • Zuma talks partnerships, jobs and other thingsWilma den HartighSouth Africa and Botswana have signed a memorandum of understanding to promote trade and investment between the two countries and create opportunities for industrialisation and the manufacturing sectors.The signing follows a two-day state visit by President Jacob Zuma to Gaborone with the purpose to strengthen political and economic relations with the neighbouring country.His visit was a follow-up to the October 2010 one by President Ian Khama to Pretoria, during which the two countries reviewed progress in various areas of bilateral cooperation. The MOU was signed by the Botswana Investment and Trade Centre and Trade and Investment South Africa, a unit of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), at the South Africa-Botswana Business Forum.A high level ministerial delegation from South Africa that included DTI Minister Rob Davies, and his Botswana counterpart, Dorcas Makgato-Malesu, also participated in the proceedings. Also at the forum were also prominent business leaders from various sectors.Strengthening economiesThe signing also marks a significant move to strengthen existing economic ties between the two countries.“We are looking to promote deeper mutually beneficial economic relations between the two countries,” said Davies.South Africa and Botswana are already trading partners, with local companies having a major presence in various sectors of Botswana’s economy such as mining, housing, food and beverages, construction, retail, hotels and leisure, banking and medical services.Zuma’s spokeperson Mac Maharaj said in a statement investment in infrastructure was an important focus of the visit. This was especially the case if the two countries are to work together on large scale projects such as cross-border infrastructure as well as industrial and energy developments.According to Davies, the continent is the new growth frontier.“It is a place that investors can no longer ignore,” he said, adding that there is a need for the continent to move into more value added and economically diversified activities.“We need to industrialise the continent and re-industrialise South Africa’s economy because this sector has taken a lot of strain,” he added. “We have to create business opportunities for industrial development.”This was reiterated by Pumla Ncapayi, the DTI’s deputy director general, who said there is a need to move away from mineral-based economies only, towards manufacturing-driven sectors.Speaking on behalf of the Black Business Council, spokesperson Sandile Zungu said the two countries are in a good position to work together as they share common challenges.“We need to beneficiate, increase manufacturing capacity and forge better collaboration as regional economies,” he said.Makgato-Malesu took the opportunity to speak on Botswana’s status as a rising investment hub.“We are looking for the type of investment that will help us accelerate industrialisation and result in economic diversification of the economy of Botswana,” she said.Building on existing relationshipsIn his address, Zuma referred to the strong historical, economic, social, political and neighbourly relations that the two countries share, saying these were strengthened during South Africa’s liberation struggle.“Enhancing close economic cooperation between Botswana and South Africa is a priority,” he said. “We believe that the time for Africa has come to utilise its resources for the benefit of itself.”Following on Zuma’s encouraging message to the business communities of the two countries to take advantage of new opportunities, Zungu said:“The argument for cooperation between the two countries is sound, and together the two can achieve so much more.”He added that the role of business on the continent can extend beyond financial investment only.“The business approach of only being profit driven is a bygone era,” he said.“Business people must take cognisance of the fact that there is high unemployment in the region and they must think how their businesses can meet this need, but at the same time achieve accelerated growth.”
Retail fraud comes in many shapes and sizes and is especially rampant during the holiday season when online and in-store traffic grows significantly. One of the biggest issues throughout the holiday season: return fraud. According to the National Retail Federation’s latest Return Fraud Survey, retailers estimate that 3.5 percent of their holiday returns this year will be fraudulent, up slightly from the estimated 3 percent reported last year. Holiday return fraud is expected to cost retailers $2.2 billion, up from approximately $1.9 billion last year.Retailers surveyed estimate that total annual returns will reach $260.5 billion, or 8 percent of total retail sales, with $9.1 billion of retailers’ annual returns expected to be fraudulent, or 3.5 percent of the industry’s total returns.“Return fraud remains a critical issue for retailers with the impact spanning far and wide, in-store and online,” said NRF Vice President of Loss Prevention Bob Moraca. “While technology has played a significant role in deterring many in-person fraudulent transactions that would have otherwise gone unseen, there is little that can be done to prevent a determined criminal who will find a loophole one way or another. When it comes to retail fraud, retailers can build taller walls, but criminals continue to find taller ladders.”- Sponsor – When it comes to specific instances of return fraud, one problem stands out as the biggest offender: nine in 10 retailers surveyed (91.9%) said they have experienced the return of stolen merchandise, similar to last year’s 92.7 percent. Wardrobing, or the return of used, non-defective merchandise, also presents a unique challenge year after year for retailers: three-quarters (72.6%) of those polled said they have experienced wardrobing in past year, on par with last year’s 72.7 percent.The report does offer a glimmer of optimism though. According to the survey, fewer retailers in 2015 have experienced specific instances of return fraud, including:75.8 percent have experienced the return of merchandise purchased on fraudulent tender, down from 81.8 percent in 2014;71 percent have experienced return fraud made by known organized retail crime groups, down from 78.2 percent last year;77.4 percent of retailers surveyed have experienced employee return fraud or collusion with external forces, down from 81.8 percent in 2014.Given the growing use of e-receipts by retailers, the survey found a likely connection to fraud in this area. The survey found one-third (33.9%) of those polled said they have experienced return fraud with use of e-receipts, up from 18.2 percent last year.“Retailers have the difficult task of providing superior customer service by always giving the benefit of the doubt to their shoppers when it comes to returns, while simultaneously working to make sure they protect their business assets,” continued Moraca. “We expect retailers to continue their tried and true ways of combating fraud through increased usage of identification verification, as well as seeking new and innovative approaches on the back end.”Additional findings:Three in 10 (30%) surveyed said they have seen an increase in fraudulent purchases made with cash, while six in 10 (60.7%) have seen an increase in the use of gift card/merchandise credit return fraud.Eight in 10 retailers surveyed (85.2%) said they require identification when making a return without a receipt, up from 70.9 percent last year.Retailers surveyed said they estimate 10 percent of returns made without a receipt are fraudulent, up from an estimated 5 percent who said so last year. Just 1 percent of purchases made online and returned to stores are suspected to be fraudulent.* NRF has revised its methodology for this report to use median data rather than averages, thus estimates from previous reports are no longer comparable. The data represented in this survey compares the median averages for both 2014 and 2015.

CCH Tax Day ReportFinal regulations under Code Sec. 6041 have been provided regarding the filing of information returns to report winnings from bingo, keno, and slot machine play. The final regulations implement with certain modifications the proposed regulations contained in NPRM REG-132253-11 (March 4, 2015). The final rules update the existing requirements regarding the filing, form, and content of these information returns; allow for an additional form of payee identification; and provide an optional aggregate reporting method. The final regulations apply to persons who pay winnings of $1,200 or more from bingo and slot machine play, $1,500 or more from keno, and recipients of such payments.General Filing RequirementsThe proposed regulations provided that, in general, every person engaged in a trade or business who makes a payment of reportable gambling winnings must make an information return with respect to such payment. The final regulations adopt the proposed rules regarding filing requirements, as well as the form and content of the information returns required to be filed, without modification. However, the proposed regulations regarding reporting of winnings from electronically tracked slot machine play were not adopted in the final regulations.Additional Form of Payee IdentificationA payor of bingo, keno, or slot machine winnings above the applicable threshold generally must obtain two forms of identification from the payee to verify the payee’s identity. The final regulations expand the list of acceptable government-issued identification to include tribal member identification cards issued by a federally recognized Indian tribe. An exception to the photo identification requirement applies if one of the forms of identification provided is a tribal identification card presented at a gaming establishment owned or licensed by the tribal government that issued the tribal member identification card.Optional Aggregate Reporting MethodThe proposed regulations provided a new rule for optional aggregate reporting of multiple bingo, keno, and slot machine winnings to the same payee from the same type of game during a single “session,” provided certain payor recordkeeping requirements were satisfied. The final regulations adopt the proposed optional aggregate reporting method with some modifications. First, the term “information reporting period” is used instead of “session.” An information reporting period is either a calendar day or a gaming day, as long as that period is applied uniformly by the payor to all payees during the calendar year. Midyear changes to a payor’s information reporting period are not permitted; a payor may change its information reporting period for the next calendar year only on January 1. All information reporting periods must end at 11:59 PM on December 31. A gaming establishment is defined in the final regulations as a business entity of a payor of reportable bingo, keno or slot machine winnings and includes all gaming establishments owned by the payor using the same employer identification number. Finally, under the final regulations, the person authorized by the applicable gaming regulatory control authority to ensure accuracy in reporting must provide his or her unique identification number; however, a gaming license number is not required to be provided.Netting WagersUnder the final regulations, in determining whether the threshold reporting amount is satisfied, winnings from bingo and slot machine play are not determined by netting the wager against the winnings. However, for keno winnings, reportable gambling winnings are determined by netting the wager in that one game against the winnings from that game.Definition of Slot Machine and Reportable Gambling WinningsThe final regulations adopt the definition of the term “slot machine” in the proposed regulations without modification. A slot machine is a device that, by application of the element of chance, may deliver or entitle the person playing or operating the device to receive cash, premiums, merchandise, or tokens, whether or not the device is operated by inserting a coin, token, or similar object. The definition of “reportable gambling winnings” in the proposed regulations is also adopted without modification. All winnings from all cards played during one bingo game are combined, and all winnings from all “ways” on a multi-way keno ticket are combined. Winnings from different types of games are not combined to determine whether the reporting thresholds are satisfied, and bingo, keno, and slot machine play are all different types of games.Effective DatesThe provisions in the final regulations concerning payor-selected information reporting periods applies to payments of reportable gambling winnings from bingo, keno, or slot machine play made on or after January 1, 2017. All other sections of the final regulations apply to payments of reportable gambling winnings from bingo, keno or slot machine play made on or after December 30, 2016.T.D. 9807, 2017FED ¶47,006Other References:Code Sec. 6041CCH Reference – 2016FED ¶35,835CCH Reference – 2016FED ¶33,641NTax Research ConsultantCCH Reference – TRC FILEBUS: 9,204CCH Reference – TRC FILEBUS: 9,208.15
