And even if this is passed we think if they are sold to us it will give us such a hefty share of the market, the sellers will make us pay a large premium.”Engelhardt’s comments will add to expectations that RBS will choose to offload the businesses through IPOs in the next two years. center_img whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen HeraldBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comAtlantic MirrorA Kilimanjaro Discovery Has Proved This About The BibleAtlantic MirrorTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastElite HeraldKate Middleton Dropped An Unexpected Baby BombshellElite HeraldTrading BlvdThis Picture of Prince Harry & Father at The Same Age Will Shock YouTrading Blvd Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof Tags: NULLlast_img read more

With the UK still cheaper than many other stock markets, here are three shares I’d buy and hold. Reliable business modelElectricity distributor National Grid (LSE: NG.) is a safe and reliable company, I believe. It doesn’t have the exciting, fast growth of companies operating in emerging markets or new industries. But it has other appealing qualities and, of course, a generous dividend. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Demand for electricity in the US and the UK isn’t going away. Operating in stable countries makes the firm less risky and the US is now National Grid’s biggest market, accounting for 44% of its £40bn worth of assets.The regulated nature of most of its business gives the company good visibility on its earnings and a monopoly on electricity distribution means it can take on the debt it can afford.The dividend yield is 5% and the aim is to grow it at least in line with RPI Inflation, so a cut is unlikely. It means shareholders are set to be well rewarded for many years to come.Transitioning to a new modelIntercontinental Hotels (LSE: IHG) operates brands including InterContinental, Holiday Inn, and Crowne Plaza, and has nearly 5,800 hotels across 100 countries. The group used to build and run hotels, which used up a lot of money and required borrowing. In recent years the group has moved to a slicker, more profitable hotel management model, which means running hotels for landlords and franchising. This is helping it expand quickly and is driving up margins.The new model and its benefits haven’t gone unnoticed. Like other higher-growth, asset-light companies, Intercontinental trades on a bit of a premium to the average for the FTSE 100. Its P/E ratio is 24. I think it has good long-term prospects and the price isn’t too high for the quality of the business.The downside is that the violent clashes in Hong Kong are currently affecting business. That shows no sign of stopping, but thinking about the long term, I believe the hotel manager looks in great shape. A model for growthAnother quality company I like is the engineering group Avon Rubber (LSE: AVON) that produces military equipment and products for dairy farmers. As strange a mix of product offerings as that may sound, it’s working well for shareholders.The group is the sole source provider of general purpose masks, tactical masks, powered air systems and tactical self contained breathing apparatus across the entire US Department of Defense, showcasing the quality of its customer relationships and products.Acquisitions and a focus on product development are, I think, two drivers for the share price over the next decade. Avon Rubber does both very well, which is pushing up earnings and the dividend. Earnings have risen from 83.8p in 2017 to 91.7p in 2019, while the dividend has risen from 12.32p to 20.83p over the same timeframe.I’d expect further growth from this company and see the P/E of 23 as a price worth paying for what I see as a great company.

Curry, Évêque Primat de l’Église épiscopale a publié la déclaration suivante :La semaine dernière, j’ai partagé ce qui je l’espère était un message de réconciliation postélectorale à l’attention de notre église, en rappelant que « nous vivons tous ensemble en tant que concitoyens américains ». Aujourd’hui je tiens à rappeler que lors des moments de transition, lors des moments de tension, il est important de réaffirmer notre identité et nos valeurs fondamentales en tant que disciples de Jésus dans la tradition épiscopale anglicane.Jésus a déclaré, dans la langue des prophètes hébraïques, que la « maison [de Dieu] sera appelée maison de prière pour toutes les nations » (Marc 11:17). Il a invité et a souhaité la bienvenue à tous ceux qui voulaient le suivre en disant « venez à moi, vous tous qui peinez sous le poids du fardeau » (Matthieu 11:28).Nous pouvons donc affirmer et sommes convaincus que « l’Église épiscopale vous accueille » – vous tous, n’est pas simplement un slogan pour l’église mais le reflet de ce que nous croyons que Jésus nous enseigne et qui est au cœur du mouvement qu’il a commencé au premier siècle. L’Église épiscopale nous accueille tous. Nous tous !En tant que branche épiscopale du Mouvement de Jésus aujourd’hui, nous les épiscopaliens y sommes engagés car notre Livre de prière nous enseigne à honorer l’engagement que nous avons pris et les promesses que nous avons faites pour le saint baptême : de proclamer par la parole et par l’exemple la Bonne Nouvelle de Dieu dans le Christ, de rechercher et de servir le Christ dans toute personne, d’aimer notre prochain comme nous-mêmes, de lutter pour la justice et la paix entre tous les peuples et de respecter la dignité de tout être humain.En tant que chrétiens, nous croyons que tous les êtres humains sont créés à l’image de Dieu et sont égaux devant Dieu – ceux qui se réjouissent tout comme ceux qui sont dans la douleur. En tant qu’église, en cherchant à suivre la voie de Jésus qui nous a enseigné « tu aimeras ton prochain comme toi-même » (Matthieu 22:39) et « tout ce que vous voulez que les hommes fassent pour vous, faites-le vous-mêmes pour eux » (Matthieu 7:12), nous tenons notre engagement de longue date de soutenir et d’accueillir les réfugiés et les immigrés, et d’être solidaires avec ceux qui vivent parmi nous sans papiers. Nous réaffirmons qu’à l’instar de toute personne, les LGBT ont pleinement droit aux droits civiques et à la protection au regard de la loi. Nous réaffirmons et renouvelons les principes d’inclusion et de protection des droits civiques pour toutes les personnes handicapées. Nous nous engageons à respecter l’honneur et la dignité des femmes et dénonçons la violence sexuelle ou sexiste. Nous exprimons notre solidarité et honorons les peuples autochtones du monde. Nous affirmons le droit à la liberté d’expression religieuse et à la présence dynamique de différentes communautés religieuses, en particulier nos sœurs et frères musulmans. Nous reconnaissons notre responsabilité dans la gestion de la création et de tout ce que Dieu a remis entre nos mains. Nous le faisons parce que Dieu est le Créateur. Nous sommes tous enfants de Dieu, créés égaux à l’image de Dieu. Et si nous sommes les enfants de Dieu, nous sommes tous frères et sœurs.« L’Église épiscopale vous accueille » n’est pas simplement un slogan, c’est ce que nous cherchons à être et le témoignage de que nous cherchons à faire, en suivant la voie de Jésus.Michael B.

Case Timeline29 July: The Bollywood actress Rhea Chakraborty Wednesday moved the Supreme Court seeking transfer of an FIR from Patna to Mumbai and the stay on the investigation by the Bihar police on the allegations of Sushant Singh Rajput’s father that she abetted suicide of his actor son.5 August: Justice Hrishikesh Roy refused to grant a stay in the Bollywood actress Rhea Chakraborty and issued notice to Bihar Government. 6 August: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) registered a First Information Report (FIR) against Actress Rhea Chakraborty and five family members in the Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case. 7 August: In its affidavit filed before the Supreme Court in response to the Transfer Petition , Bihar Government alleged that Mumbai Police is not cooperating with its investigation in Sushant Singh Rajput Death Case and is siding with Rhea. It also raised its objections against maintainability of the Transfer petition contending that section 406 Cr.P.C cannot be invoked to transfer investigation from one state to another state.11 August: Justice Hrishikesh Roy heard all the parties and reserved the case for orders. During the hearing, Senior Advocate Shyam Divan, representing Chakraborty asserted that it was only the Mumbai Police who had the authority to handle the case, while Patna Police had no jurisdiction to have registered the case at all. Senior advocate Maninder Singh, who appeared for Bihar Government, contended that there was no investigation being carried out by the Mumbai police since there was no FIR that had been registered in the State.

The Bench of Justice Prathiba M. Singh issued notices to the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technologies and the aforesaid social media platforms and sought for their responses in sealed over. An application was moved by the Petitioner seeking complete details of the originator of the offending material, and so, the Court directed that notice be issued to the respondents. The Court directed them (respondents) to file their replies, in response to the application filed by the petitioner within two weeks. Further, in the meantime, the Basic Subscriber Information (BSI) of the person who had uploaded the videos, has been directed to be produced before the Court in a sealed cover, before the next date of hearing. The Case before the Court It is the case of the petitioner that the photograph of his deceased wife was being circulated on various social media platforms wrongly depicting her as the victim of the unfortunate incident of rape and murder of a young girl at Hathras, Uttar Pradesh. It was argued by the counsel for the petitioner that even otherwise, the revelation of the identity of the rape victim was an offence under the Indian Penal Code, though in the present matter image of a wrong person is in circulation. Importantly, in January 2021, Google, Facebook, and Twitter had informed the court that they had blocked/taken down all links which incorrectly showed the deceased woman’s photo as that of the Hathras rape victim. It may be noted that in this very plea, the Delhi High Court had, in October 2020, directed the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technologies & Ors. (MeitY) to act on the complaint expeditiously [if the complaint of the petitioner (the husband of the deceased lady) was found to be correct]. Case title –Ajay Kumar v.

first_imgSwarming is a fundamental part of the life of Euphausia superba, yet we still know very little about what drives the considerable variability in swarm shape, size and biomass. We examined swarms across the Scotia Sea in January and February 2003 using a Simrad EK60 (38 and 120 kHz) echosounder, concurrent with net sampling. The acoustic data were analysed through applying a swarm-identification algorithm and then filtering out all non-krill targets. The area, length, height, depth, packing-concentration and inter-swarm distance of 4525 swarms was derived by this method. Hierarchical clustering revealed 2 principal swarm types, which differed in both their dimensions and packing-concentrations. Type 1 swarms were generally small (<50 m long) and were not very tightly packed (100 km away from the next swarm). The distribution of swarm types over the survey grid was examined with respect to a number of potential explanatory variables describing both the environment and the internal-state of krill (namely maturity, body length, body condition). Most variables were spatially averaged over scales of similar to 100 km and so mainly had a mesoscale perspective. The exception was the level of light (photosynthetically active radiation (PAR)) for which measurements were specific to each swarm. A binary logistic model was constructed from four variables found to have significant explanatory power (P < 0.05): surface fluorescence, PAR, krill maturity and krill body length. Larger (type 2) swarms were more commonly found during nighttime or when it was overcast during the day, when surface fluorescence was low, and when the krill were small and immature. A strong pattern of diel vertical migration was not observed although the larger and denser swarms tended to occur more often at night than during the day. The vast majority of krill were contained within a minor fraction of the total number of swarms. These krill-rich swarms were more common in areas dominated by small and immature krill. We propose that, at the mesoscale level, the structure of swarms switches from being predominantly large and tightly packed to smaller and more diffuse as krill grow and mature. This pattern is further modulated according to feeding conditions and then level of light. (C) 2009 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.last_img read more
