Kim Kardashian Addresses Her Marriage On “Live With Kelly”

Kim Kardashian took the co-seat today on Live With Kelly, where she addressed her failed marriage to Kris Humprhies, but what did the reality star have to say about it? The star of Kourtney and Kim Take New York says that it was definitely not staged, but then what happened? Read on to hear what Kim Kardashian wanted to share!

Kim Kardashian has received massive backlash since ending her marriage to Kris Humphries after only 72 days. With boycotts everywhere, Kim Kardashian was hoping to clear some things up while she was co-hosting Live With Kelly this morning. While on the show, Kim spoke about her failed marriage and said: “I’m such a hopeless romantic. I wanted to believe in something so badly. But if you really think about it, if this was a business decision and I really made all that money that everyone was claiming that we made off this wedding, and if the wedding was fake and just for TV – I’m a smart businesswoman, I would’ve stayed married longer. I really didn’t think following my heart would create this much backlash.”


Elizabeth Smart engaged,to be married in July

Elizabeth Smart, whose kidnapping and survival story has captivated the state and nation, is engaged to be married.And the nuptials of Utah’s semi-celebrity are likely to be the sparkling cider toast — and talk — of the town.The 24-year-old Smart, a senior at BYU, plans to marry in the summer after becoming engaged last weekend, Chris Thomas of Intrepid Communications confirmed Friday.

Thomas declined to identify Smart’s fiance or provide details about how the two met, but wedding registries online at Williams-Sonoma and Pottery Barn list a July 1 wedding date for an Elizabeth Smart and Matthew Gilmour in Utah.Gilmour is from Scotland. The two apparently met while Smart was serving an LDS mission in France last year.Those clamoring for information on whether the blushing bride-to-be will wear her hair up or down, choose lilies or roses for her reception, and if she will say yes to a dress designed by Vera Wang, Monique Lhuillier or local designer Maggie Sottero may be disappointed.

Lloyds chief Antonio Horta Osorio gives up £2.4m bonus

Mr Horta-Osorio, who only returned to work this week after two months off due to a stress-related sleeping disorder, could have potentially received an annual bonus worth £2.39m on top of his £1.06m salary.Despite turning down his annual bonus, Mr Horta-Osorio is still eligible for a share grant for the last 12 months under a long-term incentive plan worth as much as £4.46m.

Declining his annual bonus, the Portuguese banker admitted his recent leave of absence had had "an impact both inside and outside the bank including for shareholders" and said he had told the Lloyds board he did not wish to be considered for the payment."As chief executive, I believe my bonus entitlement should reflect the performance of the group but also the tough financial circumstances that many people are facing," said Mr Horta-Osorio.

Income tax payments hit record high of £153bn

Four years after the credit crisis began, the total paid by taxpayers during 2010/2011 increased by 10pc on 2009/10 to more than £447bn, close on the pre-credit crisis peak for total revenues of £451bn in 2007/2008.In addition to record receipts from income tax, last January's increase in the standard rate of VAT to 20pc boosted returns from £70bn to £85bn.Changes to National Insurance Contributions (NICs), including doubling the top rate paid by employees with income above £42,484 a year, lifted returns from NICS to nearly £97bn.

Richard Mannion, a director of accountants Smith & Williamson, said: "Taxes have risen while the economy has remained flat and that scenario is likely to be repeated in the current tax year, 2011/12."The main factors are the increase in VAT and increases in income tax payable by the better-off, rather than an economic recovery. Total income tax set a new record in 2010/11 which presumably reflects the new 50pc top rate and the loss of personal allowances for better off taxpayers under Pay As You Earn.

Loan to Supreme Court high risk World Bank said

The Supreme Court under the watch of Chief Justice Renato Corona has been weighed and found wanting.
The World Bank has uncovered questionable procurements and disbursements in the high court in connection with the Judicial Reform Support Project (JRSP). The project, partly funded by a World Bank loan of $21.9 million (P930.75 million at an exchange rate of P42.50 to $1), was designed to restore efficiency in the dispensation of justice in the country.

In an aide memoire, the World Bank said that since Corona assumed his post in mid-2010, progress in reforming the judiciary “has been rated unsatisfactory,” with “implementation delays and additional work required for smooth project closing.”The document detailed the results of a fiduciary review conducted by a World Bank task team on Oct. 24-Nov. 11, 2011, through discussions with justices of the high court and field visits to courts all over the country.
“The review discloses that the fiduciary environment pertaining to JRSP implementation has so deteriorated that the task team now rates the JRSP as a ‘high risk’ and ‘unsatisfactory’ on project management, project procurement and financial management dimensions, and observes that project financial statements can no longer be relied upon,” the World Bank said.

The review uncovered, among others, “inaccurate/incomplete information” on the project’s financial management report, “diminished existing internal check-and-balance mechanism,” purchase of information technology equipment outside of the agreed procurement plan, and the practice of borrowing funds from the loan for the justices’ foreign travels, paid to a travel agency owned by lawyer Estelito Mendoza.The World Bank is now demanding a refund of $199,900, covering “70 payments” deemed “ineligible” or unauthorized under the terms of the JRSP, by Jan. 31.

The World Bank initiated the fiduciary review when Corona was already appointed Chief Justice by then President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo despite an election ban.It said the review was “triggered by several withdrawal applications” presented to the World Bank by the tribunal’s Program Management Office (PMO), “which seemed to signal a sudden and significant increase in the disbursement in the latter half of 2011.”“The project result indicators depict achievements in several areas, but significant missed opportunities due to capacity and coordination constraints and delays in decision-making, procurement and contracting,” it said.Included in the “ineligible” purchases were the printing supply of the Court Reporter’s Case Index, purchase of laptop computers, speaker’s fee for seminars, registration fee of justices attending international conferences, and foreign travels of justices and their staff (including airfare, hotel accommodations and meal allowances).

Asked to comment, Ramon Esguerra, a spokesperson of Corona’s legal team, on Saturday said the accusation was “not in any way connected to any of the articles of impeachment” against the Chief Justice.
He said it was the high court as a whole, and not Corona alone, that should respond to the accusation.
“Two days before the opening of the trial and there’s this story?” Esguerra told the Inquirer by phone. “The barrage of black propaganda has not ceased. In fact, it’s now coming out with greater intensity.”
Esguerra said media reports on Corona’s alleged ill-gotten wealth, as well as the latest on the supposed fund mismanagement at the high court, were all part of “a pattern of harassment intended to demonize the Chief Justice in the eyes of the public.”

“It’s very unfair,” he protested.Corona himself said “it’s hard to answer that [accusation]” because he had yet to read the World Bank aide memoire.The Inquirer sought his comment after a Tridentine Mass held late Saturday afternoon at the Supreme Court grounds, the last of novena Masses for the embattled Chief Justice.
Corona attended the Mass with his wife and more than 100 sympathizers, including former Philippine Commission on Good Government Chair Camilo Sabio.The Chief Justice also said he had yet to decide whether he would attend the opening of his impeachment trial on Monday, contradicting Esguerra’s statement that he would show up.

According to the World Bank, the diminished internal auditing mechanism in the high court was exemplified by Corona’s appointment of one man as court administrator, head of the Public Information Office, and chair of the Bids and Awards Committee.The court administrator was authorized to approve, on Corona’s behalf, payments of up to P200,000 which was later increased to P500,000, the World Bank said.“Lack of appropriate segregation of duties of key officials involved in the JRSP has created a breakdown of the control environment, increased fiduciary and reputation risks, and led to irregular/inappropriate procurement and expenditure decisions,” it said.
Without naming Jose Midas Marquez, the World Bank said “this senior official, due to the combination of his appointments and functions, was the requestor of the services, the approver of the terms of reference, the end-user of the services provided by the firm, the authorizer of contract extensions, and the authorizer of payments to the firm.”
It said this arrangement, among others, “present[ed] a conflict of interest and eliminate[d] internal checks and balances applicable to the procurement and disbursement functions.”

project components :

The World Bank approved the loan in 2003 (Loan No. 7191-PH) “to assist the borrower in developing a more effective and accessible judiciary that would foster public trust and confidence through the implementation of the Supreme Court’s Action Program for Judicial Reform (APJR).”
The JRSP is the World Bank’s term for its financial support for the APJR, the brainchild of then Chief Justice Hilario Davide Jr., who envisioned the much-needed judicial reforms to be bankrolled by combined resources from the national budget, the judiciary’s own funds and financing from development partners.
The four project components involved improving case adjudication and access to justice (i.e., mobile courts); enhancing institutional integrity (i.e., Code of Ethics and related training of judges and judicial personnel); strengthening the institutional capacity of the judiciary (i.e., e-Library); and support for the reform of the judicial system and for the high court’s PMO.
The judicial reform covered six key areas: judicial system procedures, institutional development, human resources development, integrity infrastructure development, access to justice by the poor, and reform support systems.
The World Bank has participated in all six areas; six other development partners have varying degrees of exposure to the APJR.
The loan was to expire on Dec. 31, 2009, during the incumbency of Chief Justice Reynato Puno. But the World Bank extended the closing date twice—first by 18 months (until June 30, 2011), and then by 12 months (until June 30, 2012).
But due to questions over the fiscal discipline of the tribunal in adhering to loan stipulations, the World Bank canceled the final tranche of the loan amounting to $0.5 million.
