Meanwhile business secretary Vince Cable, also part of the China convoy, claimed banks threatening to quit the UK over regulation and tax are merely sabre-rattling.He said banks reconsidering their domicile is “a familiar negotiating technique,” albeit one that should “be taken seriously”. “You have got to balance that against our national interest. Banks have to be safe and that means that the regulations have to take into account the potential problems created by cash bonuses,” he told Bloomberg TV.Cable was responding to RBS chairman Sir Philip Hammond who warned banks could be forced out of Europe as a result of draconian new rules, which include strict capital requirements. HSBC also slammed UK?and EU?policies last Friday.Last month City A.M. revealed Barclays is weighing up the costs of quitting its UK base. Standard Chartered has also considered its position but has no immediate plans to relocate. center_img Tags: NULL Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

Depreciation and amortisation costs totalled €12.1m, while the amortisation of acquired affiliate assets stood at €7.3m, leaving GiG with a loss before interest and tax of €8.7m, compared to €24.1m in 2019. “The revenue and EBITDA growth is a testament to what has been built up through this year, and we are looking forward towards the continued improving results and growth as the actions through the second half of the year start to be delivered in 2021 and beyond,” Brown said. In terms of discontinued operations, GiG noted a loss of €449,000, much lower than €35.8m in the previous year, meaning its total comprehensive loss for the quarter was €4.2m, a significant improvement from the €49.2 loss in Q4 of the previous year.

This brought together GiG’s platform technology with Betgenius’ end-to-end live data, trading and risk management services.

How Warren Buffett’s advice could help me invest £1k

first_img Warren Buffett is one of the greatest investors of all time. Over the past 70 years, he’s grown an initial investment of $100,000 into a company with more than $700bn of assets.I think anyone can learn a lot by looking at the famous investor’s career. I’ve certainly learnt a lot. Indeed, if I had to invest a lump sum of £1,000 today, I’d follow his advice.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…Warren Buffett’s adviceBuffett believes investors should only buy high-quality businesses. These are companies with substantial competitive advantages, which can be anything from significant economies of scale to global brands.Two of his favourite companies are Apple and Coca-Cola. Both of these organisations have incredible brands, which are recognised the world over. That’s helped them grow year after year and generate enormous profits for their investors.He focuses on these high-quality companies and ignores low-quality businesses, no matter how cheap they might be. Indeed, he once said: “It’s far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price than a fair company at a wonderful price.“If I had to invest a lump sum of £1,000 today, I’d follow this advice. However, rather than picking winners on valuation alone, I’d seek out the market’s best businesses and focus on profit margins, competitive advantages and brand strength.Buffett also places a lot of emphasis on the strength of a company’s management. He’s looking for highly competent managers that can run a business through thick and thin, as well as coping with everything the world throws at them.And he also tends to avoid commodity companies such as oil and mining corporations. The reason why he tends to stay away from the sectors is simple. Commodity prices can be highly volatile. As such, these companies have to hope for the best that prices remain high and above production costs. That involves a great deal of guesswork, which even Buffett may struggle with.An investment frameworkUsing all of the above, I’ve been able to put together an investment framework built on his advice. This framework is relatively simple. It suggests I should only target stocks with strong managers, wide profit margins, a robust competitive advantage, and avoid resource companies.With this framework in mind, I’d invest my £1,000 in companies like Unilever and Reckitt. Both of these enterprises own portfolios of billion-dollar brands. That’s their competitive advantage. Highly experienced management teams also run them and, most importantly, they can set their own prices.Of course, this strategy might not be suitable for all investors. Finding good companies can be incredibly challenging. Even Buffett gets it wrong occasionally. That’s why he’s also advocated using a low-cost passive index tracker fund for investors who might not have the time or experience to find individual businesses. This strategy might be more suitable for less experienced investors.However, if I had an investment of £1,000 today, I would follow Buffett’s advice and buy Unilever and Reckitt.

Along with that, it committed to educating seminarians in the skills of critical reflection, contextual analysis and public conversation, for which training them in community organizing plays a role.The Very Rev. W. Mark Richardson, the president and dean of Church Divinity School of the Pacific, during last year’s Industrial Areas Foundation training. Photo: CDSP“We were trying to make a shift in our curriculum and were looking for a tighter fit between the life of faith and public life,” said the Very Rev. W. Mark Richardson, the president and dean of CDSP, in an interview in his office with Episcopal News Service.“To develop confident leaders at the interface of faith and public life … that’s a 21st-century way, we think, of approaching the question of mission,” he added.For many Episcopalians, it’s clear that to be the church in the world means to be present in the communities and to take an active interest in improving people’s lives. In recent years, some Episcopal bishops increasingly have called for their clergy not only to be pastors but to be entrepreneurs, public theologians and faith-based community organizers.“Bishops were saying increasingly that community organizing is a good thing,” said the Rev. Susanna Singer, an associate professor of ministry development and the director for CDSP’s Doctor of Ministry program. “We’ve always had our seminarians do clinical pastoral education in hospitals to learn the in-depth pastoral skills, but some bishops started to say that we want them to learn in-depth organizing skills.”The Christian faith, she added, is all about God’s vision of flourishing for humanity and the cosmos. “It means that the body of Christ, which is us now, has got to get out there now and be involved in the communities in which we live because that’s where God’s dream is going to come true.”To train its seminarians, CDSP turned for help to the Industrial Areas Foundation, a network of faith and community-based organizations that has trained leaders and empowered communities since 1940.In 2013, the seminary and IAF began offering the weeklong Organizing for Public Ministry course based on the national IAF leadership training in the religious, educational, labor and community context. Previously a six-day elective, beginning this fall it’s a requirement for incoming seminarians.“The intention is to train ordinary people both in giving them a conceptual framework for thinking about issues of power and self-interest and leadership as well as some of the practical skills of engaging people who are different than you out in the broader world,” said Anna Eng, lead organizer for the Bay Area Industrial Areas Foundation, in a telephone interview with ENS.Participants learn, she added, how to lead a meeting and have productive conversations. Many IAF leaders come from a religious context, so partnering with the seminary, which in addition to the practical training, facilities a theological discussion, makes sense.CDSP not only offers the course, it’s also an IAF member.The course focuses on developing skills, tools, and theoretical and reflective capacities for community organizing around multiple issues in the context of ministry. IAF leaders provide the practical nuts-and-bolts training and CDSP faculty lead theological reflections.Jennifer Snow, CDSP’s director of extended learning and an assistant professor of practical theology, facilitated the theological reflections during the last year’s IAF training. Photo: CDSPJennifer Snow, CDSP’s director of extended learning and an assistant professor of practical theology, facilitated the theological reflections during the latest IAF training. Seminarians participate in a daily theological reflection. They write papers preceding and following the training and are required to read assigned articles and books, including Jeffrey Stout’s “Blessed Are the Organized: Grassroots Democracy in America.”In the first paper, based on the readings, seminarians reflect on the relationship between broad-based community organizing and faithful leadership. Most seminarians say, “working for social justice is important, therefore community organizing is important,” not realizing they conflate the two, said Snow.“Community organizing is a strategy for working for justice,” she said, students making the distinction is a desired outcome of the course. “They should be able to realize and articulate why this as a strategy has a biblical and theological mandate for faith communities, not that it’s the same thing.”It’s an important distinction to make: Community organizing is a specific strategy that emerges from a specific context and specific needs, said Snow.“If you go into it thinking, ‘I have to work for justice because the Book of Micah tells me so, and Jesus tells me so, and, therefore, I have to do community organizing,’ that’s in the end not very convincing,” she said. “Because community organizing is a specific strategy not only about working for justice but about approaching power in a relational way as opposed to a ‘power over’ way.”As it turns out, changing people’s perception of power is critical.“It involves thinking differently about power: building relationships with people, inviting people in to share the power with you as a leader. It’s a very specific strategy about trying to reach a more just society in our particular context,” Snow said.Understanding and embracing power as a positive force initially can be an unsettling process.“Most of us have a negative connotation with power because we’ve been on the losing end of it and we’ve seen it abused,” said Eng, adding that power is not an innately bad thing.“Power is actually very good. You cannot do anything without power,” she said. “From the Christian tradition, the entire Bible is full of examples of a powerful God operating through a powerful people who are hesitant to exercise their power. So in many ways, it’s getting back into the Christian tradition.“Part of it is helping people reclaim that, the notion of the power that raised Christ from the dead is within you: Reclaim that, own that and not be scared by that. But we’ve seen a lot of misuse of power, and we’ve experienced it, so it makes sense that people shy away from it.”Seminarian Sarah Thomas’s view of power changed immediately.The Rev. Susanna Singer, an associate professor of ministry development and the director for CDSP’s Doctor of Ministry program, helped to reshape the Master of Divinity curriculum to include community organizing training. Photo: CDSP“On the very first day, we were challenged to see how often we – especially women – give our power away the minute we open our mouths,” she wrote in an email to ENS. “I was encouraged to claim my power and speak without apologizing. This was an important lesson for me as a future leader. I learned how to build one-on-one relationships by listening deeply, allowing my curiosity to lead and asking the right questions.”“I have become bolder and more open,” said Thomas, who lives in Santa Barbara and who takes online courses and spends four weeks on campus annually.Founded in 1893 to train clergy for ministry in the West, CDSP is a founding member of the Graduate Theological Union. It is one of seven seminaries in northeast Berkeley just blocks from the University of California campus, with Jewish, Hindu, Muslim, Orthodox, Swedenborgian and evangelical centers. GTU member school San Francisco Theological Seminary is in nearby San Anselmo, Marin County.It’s in this ecumenical, interfaith and secular context that seminarians participate with rabbis, businessmen, students and others in the course.“The mix of perspectives and opinions was really diverse, so that was really educational, to be in there with someone who has been in business their whole life. A retired CEO has a very different perspective than me,” said Aaron Klinefelter, a seminarian from the Diocese of Southeast Ohio.Klinefelter, now in his second year, enrolled in seminary knowing that he would have to do more than lead a parish, that he would be expected to participate in public and community life.“I certainly knew that going into this,” he said during an interview with ENS at Brewed Awakening, a coffee shop down the hill from the seminary, adding that this way of thinking is still somewhat new in the Episcopal Church. “I’m not sure why it’s a new thing that people are realizing that members have left the building.”– Lynette Wilson is an editor/reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Journalist arrested for “rebellion”

He was accused of “rebellion”.He and 29 other people also arrested for “rebellion” were taken at once to Bogota, where Goyeneche has been held in prison since 22 August. His lawyer, Daniel Acevedo, said he was innocent and his colleagues called his arrest “a mistake.” Many people arrested in earlier sweeps on the basis of reports by presumed rebel deserters had to be released for lack of evidence.Goyeneche had left Saravena for Bogota in early April after appearing on a rightist paramilitary hit list and had obtained protection under the government’s scheme to protect threatened journalists. He had since returned to Saravena and resumed work at the radio, but did not broadcast “sensitive” news so as avoid disputes with the armed groups and the authorities. to go furthercenter_img News Reports 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies ColombiaAmericas RSF, IFEX-ALC and Media Defence, support FLIP and journalist Diana Díaz against state harassment in Colombia RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America Receive email alerts August 27, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalist arrested for “rebellion” Follow the news on Colombialast_img read more

The prosecutrix denied all allegations recoded under Section 164 of CrPC and informed the Court that she was made to sign on a statement recorded in Marathi language, whereas she only understood English/ Urdu. Special Judge Priti Kumar (Ghule) noted that the prosecutrix, who was now a major, had voluntarily stated that she was alone and there was no question of anything wrong happening with her. “It is seen that prosecutrix is now completed 18 years and she is aware of deposition before Court. The prosecutrix has confidentiality refuted the allegations against the accused as mentioned in the police statement…She has totally refused connection of accused with her. She does not know any such person…It is seen that she is in the age of maturity and understanding. Her evidence does not establish any foundational facts for raising presumption u/s. 29 of the Pocso Act against the accused,” the Court thus held. The accused in this case had been in custody for almost a year, based on the allegations levelled by the prosecutrix’s brother. It was alleged that the accused met the 17 years old prosecutrix on a bus to Pune in January 2020 and later, developed a sexual relationship with her. Accordingly, a case was registered by the Nirmal Nagar Police Station under Sections 363 (Kidnapping) and 376 (Rape) of IPC and other relevant provisions of the POCSO Act. Allegedly, the prosecutrix’s statement under Section 164 of CrPC also implicated the accused of the said offences. However, during deposition in the Court, the prosecutrix denied all allegations. She submitted that no untoward incident occurred with her. According to her, she left her house after a quarrel with her sister, to meet a friend in Pune but when she went to the washroom, she lost the address of her friend. Hence, she took a lodge for herself at Pune. She was alone in the lodge, where she watched TV and slept and after her money got over, she returned.She categorically submitted that She never met any boy in the bus and she never met accused or anybody even at Pune. Moreover, when her statement under Section 164 of the CrPC was pointed to her, she admitted her signature on it but deposed that she did not state everything to the Magistrate. She told the Court that the statement was in Marathi and she understand only Urdu and English. According to her, she was made to sign on Marathi Statement, which was not explained to her. In these circumstances, the Court held, “It is seen that she is in the age of maturity and understanding. Her evidence do not establish any foundational facts for raising presumption u/s. 29 of the Pocso Act against the accused. The evidence of WPSI becomes formal in nature.
