Australian exporters are set to benefit from an historic trade agreement signed today between Australia and its largest trading partner, China. This deal, which took 9-years of negotiation, represents a victory for bi-lateral trade and an expansion of the economic relationship beyond mineral and resources, which have dominated the relationship over the last decade.

DC Circuit Stays Halbig Action Pending SCOTUS Review of King, Upholds Accommodation for Contraceptive Coverage
Only last week, we informed you of the Supreme Court’s somewhat surprising grant of cert. in the Fourth Circuit case of King v. Burwell, in which the court of appeals had upheld the government’s view that the Affordable Care Act makes federal premium tax credits available to taxpayers in all states, even where the federal government, not the state, has set up an exchange.

The broker claimed that the lawyers had induced 70 of their former clients to bring claims in Germany, in which they acted for the claimants, resulting in financial losses in excess of £2 million, including the costs of defending and settling those claims. More…
As Ebola has become a worldwide threat, the U.S. Government has provided guidance to prepare numerous agencies and entities that may become involved or affected by Ebola. On November 7, 2013, the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) issued guidance to Federal Employee Health Benefit Program (FEHBP) carriers on their responsibilities for handling members who have been exposed to or infected with the Ebola virus.

The halfway point has been reached. Whilst Ryan continues to sport the goatee look, the others have adopted the old school approach. There are definitely a couple of Tom Selleck challengers. All appear to have aged during the process. Possibly time for moustache wax to be purchased…..
