In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Enter Your Email Address Image source: Getty Images Last year, the FTSE 100 put in one of its best performances since the financial crisis. However, despite this performance, there are still pockets of value in the index, and it seems as if there could be further gains ahead for investors during 2020. In fact, it appears as if there’s a genuine chance that the index could hit a new all-time high of 8,500 points over the next 12 months.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…Trade deals The FTSE 100 is set to benefit from several significant tailwinds in 2020. First of all, by the end of the year, the government should have made some progress on the Brexit trade negotiations. The outcome might not be perfect for businesses through the UK, but it will bring some much-needed clarity to the business community. A trade deal between China and the US could also boost the index this year. The FTSE 100 is one of the world’s most international stock indexes. Around 70% of its profits come from outside the UK, which means that if the global economy is growing, the FTSE 100 should also do well. Over the past two years, the US-China trade war has held back global economic growth, impacting the earnings of cyclical FTSE 100 companies. With the prospect of a deal on the horizon, 2020 could be the year these two superpowers finally settle their differences and the global economy would almost certainly benefit as a result. Technology boost Trade deals are unlikely to be the only catalysts for the index in 2020. Improvements in technology could also prove to be a big factor. Companies throughout the index are investing tens of billions of pounds in technology to improve their operations. This investment is helping improve company efficiency and profit margins. As a result, profits are growing and cash returns to investors are also heading higher.Banks and mining companies are great examples. Both of these sectors are investing heavily in automation, which is allowing them to reduce costs, generate more cash and grow shareholder returns.Interest rates The third and final reason why I believe the FTSE 100 could hit a new all-time high in 2020 is falling interest rates. Central banks around the world are contemplating further interest rates cuts over the next few months to help stimulate the global economy. This could encourage companies to borrow more to invest, and it could drive up equity valuations.The bottom line When you add all three of the above factors together, it is easy to see how the FTSE 100 can hit 8,500 in 2020. This level is only 10% above where the FTSE 100 is trading today. It is not unrealistic to think that earnings per share could grow by 10% over the next 12 months, which would justify a 10% increase in the index. A combination of higher profit margins, higher prices, and lower costs could justify this increase. As such, now might be the time to buy the FTSE 100.last_img read more

The Anglican Alliance for Development, Relief and Advocacy is engaging Anglican churches across the world in promoting a paradigm of development that is inclusive, equitable and sustainable. More information can be found here:  www.anglicanalliance.orgRio+20 – the short name for the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development to take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in June 2012 – is seeking to find pathways to a safer, more equitable, cleaner, greener and more prosperous world for all.Twenty years after the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio, where countries aimed to rethink economic growth, advance social equity and ensure environmental protection – the UN is again bringing together governments, international institutions and major groups to agree on a range of measures that can reduce poverty while promoting decent jobs, clean energy and a more sustainable and fair use of resources. Today, 20% of the world’s population consume about 80% of the world’s resources, while 20% of the world’s population live in absolute poverty.More information about Rio+20 can be found here: http://www.uncsd2012.org/The Archbishop’s video message can be viewed on YouTube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Adso8D6vXVoThe full transcript of the Archbishop’s video message is available below:The big question that faces Rio+20 is: what kind of world do we want to leave to our children? And that’s not just a question about what kind of material environment we want to leave – the answers to that, in a way, are quite simple: we want a world that’s free of pollution, a world where everyone has access to clean water, a world where food supplies are secure, a world where people have learned sustainable methods of agriculture and development.But just as importantly, it’s a question of what kind of habits and what kind of lifestyle we want to leave to our children – what sort of skills we want to see them developing in living sustainably in this world.That means, as in so many areas, we have to start small and we have to start local.  Big changes come because small changes happen.  And in the work I do, I have the privilege of seeing quite a lot of small change going on.  Last year in Kenya I was able to see the work done by the Anglican Church there in developing the Umoja agricultural methods, methods that lift people out of subsistence agriculture to real sustainable production of food for themselves, and training also in nutritional information so that agricultural development, food security, and healthcare go together.  There are many other such local projects, and I have also been deeply impressed by the way in which people locally across the world have challenged and resisted some of the depredations of the extractive industry, in many areas one of the greatest threats to a sustainable future.Governments can, of course, and must, play their part in all this.  Governments need to give fiscal incentives to green development.  They need to promote programmes that encourage us all to reduce our waste.  They need to ‘green’ our economy, both at home and worldwide.  And we, all of us, not least the faith communities, need to collaborate in that and support governments in that vision.But at root, the question remains the same: what kind of world do we want to hand on?  Imagine that you have a child’s or a grandchild’s birthday coming up.  You want to give them a present.  You want to give them something that will genuinely mean something to them, that will enrich their lives, that will be part of lasting growth and well-being.  And that’s what we’re challenged to do here.  It’s a challenge that I think will resonate for absolutely everybody across the world.  Simply enough: what’s the gift we want to give?  The gift of a world that’s more free from pollution, a world whose future is more secure, a world where more people have access to food and clean water and healthcare?  Yes.  But also a world in which we’re transmitting the wisdom of how to inhabit a world, how to inhabit a limited environment with grace, with freedom, with confidence.All religious people see the world as a gift from God.  And all religious people are therefore bound to ask: if that’s the gift we’ve been given, how do we make it a gift to others, to the next generation?  How do we do justice by our children and grandchildren?  How do we act fairly by them?  Are we handing on a gift, both material and spiritual, that really will make them live well, live happily, so that their future will be secure and they too will have a gift to give to their children and grandchildren in turn?

Light and warmth were the first and most emphasized premises made by clients: a young couple with two daughters. Another request was great communication between the house and its gardens. The lot is located in a gated community in the Pilarzinho neighborhood, in an upper region of the northern area of Curitiba, next to large parks and green areas. It starts as a single block, which is stuck to the side limits of the lot and in the average elevation, to guarantee free space at the back, a minimum need for land movement, and a good elevation of the house because of the view. In this way, a modulation was created where the stairs and the hydraulic infrastructure are located to the center, leaving the ground floor open, allowing the use of a conventional and low-cost structure.Save this picture!© Eduardo MacariosRecommended ProductsWoodLunawoodThermowood FacadesMetallicsTrimoMetal Panels for Roofs – Trimoterm SNVEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEAWoodEGGERWood-based materials in EGGER HeadquartersOn the first floor, there are in the center: the toilet, an open kitchen, the service area, and a staircase – due to the positioning in the middle of the house, it is made of sheet metal, in the search for lightness. On the left section is the social area of the house, with large openings that connect the living and dining room to the access garden as well as to the back garden. Also, in the right section of the house, there is a large void that serves as a shelter for vehicles and also as an extension of the social area. On the second floor, due to the pursuit of the morning sun, requested by the clients, a suite was positioned above the garage and with a view to the garden. The daughters’ rooms are at the front of the house, and gets the afternoon sunlight. The library/studio was positioned in the region with the lowest solar incidence. At the center of the volume are the bathrooms, a space for a cabinet, and the staircase. Once the organization was defined, the process of subtraction and addition of volumes began, looking at improving the entry of light into the house. On the ground floor, it was added a front patio connected to the service area. On the second floor, two balconies were used: from the suite, where light and heat are coming from the north; and the daughters’ rooms, thus creating a playful atmosphere in an environment of exclusive access for the sisters, contemplated with a jabuticaba tree.Save this picture!© Eduardo MacariosSave this picture!Planta – TérreoSave this picture!© Eduardo MacariosSolved the question of lighting through a high ceiling, white walls, and floor-to-ceiling frames, we focused on the thermal comfort. Based on thermal studies, the best scenario is a combination of ceramic block standing and drywall walls isolated with rock wool to guarantee thermal quality both in winter and summer. The warmth of the house also comes with the choice of colors: two shades of orange and one of red on the floor, with epoxy paint, and red on the frames, reinforcing the solar concept of the house. Finally, back to the base of the whole project: the sun.Save this picture!© Eduardo MacariosSave this picture!Longitudinal sectionSave this picture!© Eduardo MacariosResolvida a questão da iluminação através de um pé-direito alto, paredes brancas e de esquadrias piso-teto, nos voltamos ao conforto térmico. A partir de estudos, chegamos ao cenário de aplicação de bloco cerâmico em pé e contra paredes em drywall preenchidas com lã de rocha, para garantia da qualidade térmica tanto no inverno como no verão. O calor da casa vem também na escolha das cores: dois tons de laranja e um de vermelho no piso, em pintura epóxi, e o vermelho nas esquadrias, reforçando a característica solar do projeto.

Prime minister promises to decriminalise defamation

first_img February 24, 2021 Find out more RSF decries Cambodian plan for Chinese-style “Great Firewall” CambodiaAsia – Pacific News CambodiaAsia – Pacific Cambodian journalist gets 20 months in jail for livestream March 7, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Prime minister promises to decriminalise defamation News RSF_en Help by sharing this information January 21, 2021 Find out more December 28, 2020 Find out more News Reporters Without Borders welcomed the release today of Mam Sonando, head of the independent radio station Sombok Khum, after three months in prison and called on prime minister Hun Sen to drop defamation charges against him that could bring year-long jail sentences. to go further Organisation Google experiments drop Australian media from search results Receive email alerts News Follow the news on Cambodia Reporters Without Borders takes Prime Minister Hun Sen at his word when he says he plans to remove the offence of “defamation” from the criminal code, the organisation said. Cambodian law currently allows those charged with defamation, chiefly journalists, to be sent to prison while awaiting trial and makes them liable for sentences of one year’s imprisonment. The prime minister wants to reduce these penalties to fines.“I am in favour of the decriminalisation of defamation. In future, criminal law will no longer be used in such cases,” said the prime minister on 14 February 2006, “Our goal is national reconciliation and to find a solution to the problem of poverty”The decriminalisation of this law, often used against journalists, has to be approved by parliament, in which Hun Sen’s party has the majority. “Obviously we can do whatever the prime minister demands,” said Justice Minister Ang Vong Vathana.————————————————30.01.2006Prime Minister breaks promise to drop defamation charge against Mom SonandoReporters Without Borders voiced dismay at Prime Minister Hun Sen’s announcement today that defamation charges will not, after all, be dropped against radio journalist Mom Sonando, union leader Rong Chhun and human rights activists Kem Sokha and Pa Nguon Tieng.Hun Sen said the court had ruled that it was “impossible” to withdraw the lawsuits as legal investigations were already under way. “Suspension is possible only if the case has not yet entered its investigation phase, so neither suspension nor withdrawal is possible,” he said.Last week, Hun Sen said he had finally decided to withdraw the lawsuits after receiving letters of apology. U.S. ambassador Joseph Mussomeli commented at the time: “We are very happy with what has happened. It is something the international community should applaud.”————————————————————-26.01.2006Prime minister promises to drop charges against Mam SonandoReporters Without Borders today welcomed Prime Minister Hun Sen’s decision to drop criminal defamation charges against Mam Sonando, the owner of radio Sombok Khmum (Beehive FM 105), and four human rights activists after they gave him written apologies for accusing him of selling Cambodian territory to Vietnam.“Their letters were enough for me to end the case,” the news agency Reuters quoted the prime minister as saying on 24 January. “I have to ask my lawyers and legal experts how to drop the charges against them after this compromise,” he added.—————————————————————-17.01.2006Radio station chief freed but still facing chargesReporters Without Borders welcomed the release from prison today of Mam Sonando, head of radio station Sombok Khmum (Ruche FM 105), two human rights activists, Kem Sokha and Pa Nguon Teang, and trade unionist Rong Chhun, but called on prime minister Hun Sen to drop defamation charges again them that could bring year-long jail sentences.The organisation said an interview done about a border dispute by Mam Sonando, whose health deteriorated in prison, had not slandered the prime minister and that the journalist had simply been doing his job. The radio station is one of the country’s few independent ones.The four men were greeted by a crowd of about 100 well-wishers as they emerged from Prey Sar prison, near Phnom Penh, soon after a city court had released them on bail at Hun Sen’s request.The prime minister acted after a meeting with visiting US assistant secretary of state Christopher Hill. A government official said the move was “a present for Mr Hill to mark the opening of the new US embassy” in Phnom Penh. The US had criticised the arrest of the four.Mam Sonando was arrested at his home on 11 October 2005, 20 days after broadcasting an interview with Sean Pengse, head of the French-based Cambodia Borders Committee, which opposes handing the islands of Phu Quoc and Krachakses to Vietnam. Hun Sen had said he would sue anyone who dared to suggest he was giving away Cambodian territory.last_img read more

#ShopLimerick: Taking the first steps into the digital marketplace

first_imgWhatsApp Facebook Noel Davidson Entrepreneurs AcademyFOR small businesses looking to get their products online fast, a monthly subscription to sell on marketplaces such as Shopify or Etsy is a good option.That’s according to Noel Davidson, lead trainer with the Entrepreneurs Academy, which delivers training for Local Enterprise Offices across the country.A level up from that comes off-the-shelf website builders such as Wix, Weebly and Squarespace, he says. By paying a monthly subscription, small business can use these tools to quickly and easily build a website, choosing from a selection of templates.“The downside is once you stop paying the subscription, you lose your website. The free version of these tools will give you a generic “@squarespace.com” website address, for example, but that may not look as professional,” says Davidson.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “You can buy a personalised website address option from these providers, but you will have to sort out a personalised email address yourself.“A website that looks great but doesn’t do a lot is really just a brochure and it won’t drive much business“The next level up is website builder WordPress, and paying for hosting with a separate provider. This gives businesses a branded email address.“It also provides the best option of future-proofing an online presence, with the ability to add downloadable plug-ins as a business’s needs grow. One such is the free WooCommerce plug-in from WordPress. You can bolt it on to your website and you are up and running in minutes with a full ecommerce platform,” says Davidson.All the platforms have easy ways to install a payment gateway such as Paypal, Stripe or Elavon. However, Squarespace, Wix and Weebly charge a fee for this to be switched on. With all payment options, when something is sold on your website, you pay a small percentage to the provider when the payment is processed.“A lot of website designers build for WordPress so if, at some stage, you want to link your accounting package to it, you can.”Features such as livechat or a booking engine are among other plug-ins.“Our advice is to give the business as much flexibility as possible, so a self-hosted WordPress website on one of the local Irish hosting companies is probably preferable. Hosting costs are about €70 to €80 a year.An SSL certificate, another plug-in that protects sensitive information such as credit card information, usernames and passwords, will cost about the same annually.“Google Ads is where Google displays your ad when people search for products and services like yours. You pay for results, like when someone clicks your ad to call your business or visit your website.If you don’t have budget for that, you can help yourself in other ways. It’s about putting yourself in customers’ shoes. A chiropractor may have the word ‘chiropractor’ all over their website, but if potential customers use the search phrase ‘back pain’, local chiropractors may miss out.“Ask your customers how they found you – that’s the easiest way to source search terms. Update your website regularly with the search terms customers are using, perhaps through a value-add blog or company updates. Glowing reviews and testimonials from customers also cut through”, he explained.Read the Limerick Post Newspaper’s guide to local retailers HERE Print BusinessNews#ShopLimerick: Taking the first steps into the digital marketplaceBy Staff Reporter – December 2, 2020 80 Emailcenter_img Linkedin Twitter Advertisement Previous articleNew fuel and fast food outlet plazas on Galway RoadNext article#ShopLimerick: Finding a way out of the digital desert Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ielast_img read more
