first_img whatsapp Aggreko in boost from World Cup Show Comments ▼ Share Tags: NULL AGGREKO, the world’s biggest provider of temporary power, again upgraded its outlook for the year after posting a jump in first-half profit, helped by contracts for major sporting events.Aggreko said events such as the Vancouver Winter Olympics and the soccer World Cup, for which it provided generators and chillers, brought its local business unit £48m in revenues in the first half.“We believe that we will make further good progress in the second half and the outcome for the year as a whole will be slightly better than our previous expectations,” chairman Philip Rogerson said.The company, which is supplying cooling and power equipment to people cleaning up the Gulf of Mexico oil spill on the Louisiana coast, said it also planned to raise the interim and final dividend by 50 per cent each to reflect recent profit growth.For the six months to the end of June, underlying trading profit rose 23 per cent to £131.2m on revenue up 17 per cent at £585.6m.Pre-tax profit rose 19 per cent to £127.1m and the interim dividend is being increased to 6.55p. A poll of analysts taken before yesterday’s results showed a mean estimate of £285m for 2010 pre-tax profit. center_img whatsapp Wednesday 25 August 2010 8:46 pm KCS-content Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyUndoMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndoCrowdy FanShe Didn’t Know Why Everyone Was Staring At Her Hilarious T-ShirtCrowdy FanUndoautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comUndoAtlantic MirrorA Kilimanjaro Discovery Has Proved This About The BibleAtlantic MirrorUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoElite HeraldKate Middleton Dropped An Unexpected Baby BombshellElite HeraldUndoTrading BlvdThis Picture of Prince Harry & Father at The Same Age Will Shock YouTrading BlvdUndo More From Our Partners Killer drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orglast_img read more

Top stocks for 2021! 5 UK shares I think could help me to make a million

It takes time to build a seven-figure portfolio. But obtaining the stock market’s high-single digit annual returns on a regular basis could turn a modest monthly investment into a seven-figure portfolio.For example, assuming the same 9% annual total returns delivered by the FTSE 100 since inception in 1984 would turn a £500 monthly investment into a million in just over 30 years.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…Of course, it’s possible to generate higher returns than the wider stock market over the long run. Here are five shares that could offer impressive returns that help an investor to build a seven-figure portfolio.Long-term growth opportunities among UK sharesWhile many UK shares are experiencing tough operating outlooks at the present time, their business models could be a good fit for the economy’s future prospects. For example, online-focused companies such as Rightmove and Auto Trader could benefit from the increasing popularity of using mobiles and laptops to search for various products, including property and cars.Clearly, they’re experiencing significant challenges in the short run due to coronavirus restrictions. However, they appear to have solid financial positions and have sought to help their partner businesses in recent months. This could also provide additional goodwill as the economy recovers, while their dominant market positions may lead to resilient sales and earnings growth in the coming years.Recovery opportunities after the stock market crashOther UK shares could offer strong recovery potential after the 2020 stock market crash. Certainly, in the short run, they may experience further difficulties due to a weak economic outlook. However, financially-sound businesses with dominant market positions may stand a good chance of ultimately recovering.As such, banking shares such as Lloyds and Barclays could offer investment appeal at the present time. They have improved their financial positions in the past decade. They’ve also been able to make inroads into cost reductions to improve their efficiency. While low interest rates may not provide optimal operating conditions over the coming months, the price declines of banking shares could factor this in.Defensive growth opportunitiesAstraZeneca could also deliver impressive returns relative to other UK shares. The company has defensive characteristics that have been a key reason for its resilient financial performance since the start of the current crisis. It also has long-term growth potential as the world population ages and increases in size. This may catalyse its financial performance in the coming years.Through buying companies such as those mentioned above within a diverse portfolio of shares, it’s possible to generate relatively high returns. Over time, they could help a portfolio reach seven-figure status at a faster pace than if it was invested in an index fund. Peter Stephens owns shares of AstraZeneca, Barclays, and Lloyds Banking Group. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Auto Trader, Barclays, Lloyds Banking Group, and Rightmove.

Opinion: Players right to hit back over World League plans

Posted On Jun 23 2021 by

first_img Following Rugby World’s recent trip to the Pacific… The opportunities and the obstacles for Pacific Islands rugby – a special report Find out what Test stars think about workload,… Tough Test: Ireland’s Johnny Sexton is double tackled by New Zealand (Getty Images) Expand LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS All Blacks captain Kieran Read also sits on the International Rugby Players Council and says: “We need to be very careful that we balance the commercial needs of the game with the player welfare needs, and ensure the quality and integrity of matches meets expectations.“Fans want to see meaningful games; they don’t want to see fatigued players playing a reduced quality of rugby as part of a money-driven, weakened competition that doesn’t work for the players or clubs.“With new technologies, new broadcast deals and new money coming into the sport, this is a crucial moment for rugby and one that many players are generally excited about. However, we have to make sure that the integrity of the game and welfare of the players is protected.”BIG READS ON RUGBY’S BIG ISSUES What the players think about rugby’s biggest issues England captain Owen Farrell also highlighted how the new plans appear to have given little thought to the club game. The top clubs in England and France will hardly be cheering at the suggestion of being without their big names for five or six weeks in November-December.“Players are definitely open to discussing a new global season, but what we develop has to work with the club game in order to reduce conflict, deal with player release issues and make sure their welfare is looked after,” says Farrell.The absence of promotion-relegation will also limit the progress of Tier Two nations, with Samoa captain Chris Vui saying: “For countries in this bracket and for Pacific Islanders in particular, our biggest issue has always been the ‘club versus country’ factor.“We feel that that a 12-year deal is not workable, particularly when it presents no hope of advancement during that period. This will have the dangerous knock-on effect of luring senior players away from their countries and more towards the clubs, which is the exact opposite of what we’re all trying to achieve.”World Rugby have responded to say that International Rugby Players have been involved in the discussion process. Their statement added: “It is inappropriate to comment on specifics whilst wider stakeholder consultation, including with IRP, is ongoing.“However, it is important to note that some assumptions made in the statement regarding the proposed competition structure are inaccurate and that important matters such as playing load and emerging nation opportunities are at the heart of constructive dialogue on the overall concept.”Let’s hope that is the case. Having a proposal that appears to put financial gains far above player welfare and developing the sport in myriad nations rather than just the privileged few smacks of the self-interest that has so often held the game back. Until those making these decisions behind closed doors open their eyes to the bigger picture and what is best for the sport and the players rather than the unions’ bank balances, rugby will never fulfil its true potential.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Collapse International Rugby Players president and Ireland fly-half Johnny Sexton says: “The issue of player load has never been so topical, however needs to be properly understood. To suggest that players can play five incredibly high-level Test matches in consecutive weeks in November, is out of touch and shows little understanding of the physical strain this brings.” Opinion: Players right to hit back over World League plansNews originally broke about a proposed ‘World League’ or ‘League of Nations’ last year with the goal of making all Tests more meaningful.Plans that were mooted included an expanded Rugby Championship involving Japan and Fiji as well as promotion-relegation in that competition and the Six Nations.The top 12 teams would all play each other across a year, with semi-finals and a final in November/December between the leading nations.While I liked the idea of Fiji and Japan (or whatever teams were at 11th and 12th in the world rankings) playing at a higher level and introducing promotion and relegation in the two big annual competitions to give lower-ranked teams an incentive to progress up the global ladder, there were also numerous flaws. Will it devalue the World Cup? How does the club game fit in? What about player welfare?Making strides: Under the proposal Japan would join the Rugby Championship (Getty Images)Now it seems the only plus points – in my view at least – of the proposal may be dispensed with. The NZ Herald have reported that the current plan is to have a closed shop of just 12 teams – the Six Nations staying as it is and Japan and the USA joining the Rugby Championship.No promotion/relegation. No route for Pacific Islands – Fiji, Samoa and Tonga – or growing European sides like Georgia to get involved in the action. And this plan would likely be in place for 12 years.World Rugby insist a competition involving promotion and relegation is their goal, but there are numerous stumbling blocks to achieving this with so many stakeholders involved. Nations Champ’s is still an evolving concept that continues to be shaped by multiple and complex stakeholder discussion. Objective is to propose a more compelling and sustainable global international game for fans, players and Unions. Discussions continue with all stakeholders.— Brett Gosper (@brettgosper) February 28, 2019Looking at the mooted shake-up revealed by the NZ Herald, it’s great that Japan and the USA would be involved, but there’s little doubt the potential of those financial markets will have been considered when making these plans.For Tier Two countries to develop, they need to play Tier One nations more often, not less, so if these plans go ahead you could see lower-ranked countries actually go backwards in terms of progress.On top of that, the ramifications for player welfare are hugely concerning. Northern hemisphere teams would play three Tests in the southern hemisphere in the July window. Whereas now they usually play against one country, under this plan they would be travelling between three on successive weekends.Closed shop: If the plans go through Tonga would not play Tier One teams (Getty Images)Playing New Zealand, Japan and Argentina, for example, would be a nightmare in terms of flights, jet lag, logistics and so on.It would be the same for the Rugby Championship teams during their tournament, with numerous time zones involved.On top of that, the plan to play five Tests on successive weekends at the end of the year to determine who will win the ‘World League’ is absolutely brutal – and the players have rightly spoken out about this.

Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.[Episcopal News Service] Durante siglos y en todo el mundo, las mujeres siempre han trabajado por la paz y, si bien sus talentos son ahora más necesarios que nunca, una promotora de la paz dice que las historias de las mujeres y sus capacidades han sido desestimadas y borradas.Sanam Naraghi-Anderlini, cofundadora y directora ejecutiva de Red Internacional de Acción en la Sociedad Civil, con sede en Washington, D.C., dijo el 16 de marzo en una reunión del Centro Denominacional de la Iglesia Episcopal en Nueva York que los gobernantes del mundo —políticos y de otra índole— no reconocen el hecho básico de que “cuando uno mira a través del tiempo y la geografía cuando las mujeres se organizan colectivamente como mujeres, no utilizan la violencia”.“Podríamos ser perturbadoras; podríamos tener un cierto nivel de militancia, pero no es lo mismo que tener agrupaciones guerrilleras de mujeres”, dijo Naraghi-Anderlini, que también es profesora adjunta de la Universidad de Georgetown y quien en 2011 fue la primera experta importante sobre sexo e inclusión en el Equipo de Reserva para la Mediación de Naciones Unidas. Naraghi-Anderlini nació en Irán y se educó en las universidades de Oxford y Cambridge, Inglaterra.La reunión del 16 de marzo estaba relacionada con la 60ª. sesión de la Comisión de Naciones Unidas sobre la Condición [Jurídica y Social] de la Mujer, que se celebra del 14 al 24 de marzo. Mujeres de toda la Iglesia Episcopal y de todo el ámbito de la Comunión Anglicana, que representan a más de 20 países, han venido a Nueva York para asistir a la sesión y a varios eventos paralelos como la presentación de Naraghi-Anderlini.Su argumento acerca del papel de las mujeres como pacificadoras quedó descrito vívidamente durante una sesión de preguntas y respuestas cuando Claudette Kigeme, la coordinadora nacional de la Unión de la Madre en Burundi, dijo que las mujeres en su país claman por la paz y por la protección de las personas desarmadas, pero están hablando en un país “donde no puede decirse la verdad”.Naraghi-Anderlini dijo que mientras la ONU vive a la altura de su expreso mandato de pacificación, debe comenzar a prestar atención al pueblo de sus estados miembros en lugar de a los gobiernos de esos estados, ante quienes la organización actualmente “se postra”. Y debe prestarse esa atención de manera coherente que no permita que otros países pretendan estar listos a ayudar a un país con problemas cuando de hecho no hacen más que perseguir su propia agenda, añadió.Ella también le pregunto a Kigeme, “¿cuáles son los canales de acceso e influencia que ustedes tienen como Comunión Anglicana” para abordar el continuo conflicto en Burundi? “¿Cómo consigue usted que los líderes de su Iglesia y otros saquen a relucir estos problemas? ¿Quién le susurra qué a quién?”Naraghi-Anderlini advirtió que las personas en puestos de autoridad con frecuencia tratan de distraer a las mujeres de sus objetivos. “Lo que yo veo todo el tiempo es que intentan despolitizarnos porque se trata realmente de que las mujeres ingresen en los más exclusivos espacios masculinos”, señaló, los espacios de los militares y de los políticos de alto nivel que “toman decisiones para el futuro de las vidas de millones de personas”.“Y, como mujeres, decimos: ‘Perdonen, queremos tener un sitio a la mesa”. Y ellos intentan despolitizarnos y devolvernos al espacio de los problemas sociales” y lejos de “los espacios donde se toman las grandes decisiones”, donde se sopesan las importantes decisiones políticas y de seguridad.En el amplio espectro de su presentación, Naraghi-Anderlini también abordó lo que ella dijo que eran las tensiones inherentes a vivir en un mundo que es más plural de lo que nunca antes lo fuera, y donde la tecnología de las comunicaciones no le permite a los países ocultar los conflictos entre sus valores declarados y sus acciones.Mientras las naciones luchan por crear una identidad común en medio de la creciente diversidad en la que muchos grupos ejercen políticas basadas en la identidad, “una minoría compuesta por grupos extremistas, excluyentes y violentos están llenando el vacío que otros dejan”, afirmó.“El extremismo se ha tornado convencional”, dijo Naraghi-Anderlini. “Y en este país tenemos que vigilarlo porque lo estamos viendo en nuestra campaña electoral que cuando empiezas a decir cosas de las personas y a demonizarlas, no sabes las consecuencias que eso tendrá”.La Rda.

Beth Adamson, al centro, moderó la discusión. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.La UNCSW sirve para promover los derechos de las mujeres en los campos de lo político, lo económico, lo civil, lo social y lo educacional, y hace recomendaciones sobre problemas urgentes tocante a los derechos de las mujeres. La conferencia se reúne anualmente o bianualmente desde 1946; y alcanzó un hito en Beijing 1995 cuando adoptó un marco de política global para la igualdad de género y el empoderamiento de las mujeres que identificó 12 áreas de interés fundamental.El tema para la 60ª. sesión de la UNCSW es “El empoderamiento de las mujeres y su relación con el desarrollo sostenible” y la revisión del tema que se arrastra desde la 57ª. sesión es “Eliminación y prevención de todas las formas de violencia contra las mujeres y las niñas”, lo cual incluye un marco para abordar, prevenir y responder a la violencia contra las mujeres y las niñas.El tema de la 60ª. sesión deriva del respaldo de los líderes mundiales a la Agenda de Desarrollo Sostenible 2030, que incluye 17 nuevos Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible y 169 metas para ponerle fin a la pobreza, combatir las desigualdades y promover la prosperidad al tiempo de proteger el medio ambiente. Los objetivos de desarrollo sostenible se definieron a partir de los ocho Objetivos de Desarrollo del Milenio que se adoptaron en 2000.Las delegadas anglicanas y episcopales también participarán en la promoción social de las Mujeres Ecuménicas, que incluyen capacitación, culto ecuménico, visita a las misiones permanentes ante las Naciones Unidas y promoción continua al regreso a sus comunidades locales.— La Rda Mary Frances Schjonberg es redactora y reportera de Episcopal News Service.

Tana Umaga returns for Toulon with two big hits

Posted On Jun 18 2021 by

first_imgTuesday Mar 30, 2010 Tana Umaga returns for Toulon with two big hits On Friday we heard via Toulon’s Ross Skeate that coach Tana Umaga would be making a return to the field for their game against Bourgoin following a nasty hip injury to wing Chris Loamanu.The 36 year old All Black legend laced up his boots once again and got out there, playing on the wing in the closely contested 13-9 victory for Toulon at the Stade Pierre Rajon. Argentina’s Felipe Contepomi scored the only try of the match.Umaga played over 70 minutes before leaving the field to a warm reception from the crowd. In that time, he showed some of the ferocity that made him a feared opponent as he put big hits in on two of the Bourgoin players, which you can see here on RD now.The former All Black captain recently signalled his intent to leave Toulon and return to life in New Zealand after he signed with Counties-Manakau in a similar player/coach role. He intends to pursue a coaching career, so perhaps one day soon we’ll see him in charge of the AB’s.For now though, Umaga has been added to the squad due to the injury crisis. He’s said himself that he’s still keeping fit, so will no doubt make more of an impact in the weeks to come. Time: 01:23 Note: Thanks to Toulon video contributor 4Lc4TR4Z.

Located in a beautiful natural setting selected as one of Japan’s top one hundred sited for viewing cherry blossoms, the building’s exterior features a natural stone base intended to blend in with the environment.Save this picture!© Akiyoshi FukuzawaSave this picture!© Akiyoshi FukuzawaSeeking to reflect a distinctive Japanese aesthetic that favors natural materials and finds beauty in simplicity, the design emphasizes plainness and blank spaces in the interior. Because the boundary between these interior spaces and the outside world is ambiguous, a wealth of connections and depths arise, resulting in a high-quality living and working environment that leaves lingering impressions.Save this picture!© Akiyoshi FukuzawaThe doma, a tiled area on the first floor that can be walked on without removing shoes, has a double-height ceiling and opens inward onto a private courtyard and water feature where subtle seasonal changes in the plants and the sound of water prompt a keen awareness of time. The spaces become increasingly open to the outside world as they move upwards, offering a chance to come into sync with nature and open oneself to the surrounding landscape.Save this picture!© Akiyoshi FukuzawaSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Akiyoshi FukuzawaIt is my hope that this residence and office will serve as a place to reconnect with the nature-based wisdom and spiritual culture our ancestors have passed down to us, as well as to quietly reexamine my own life.Save this picture!© Akiyoshi FukuzawaProject gallerySee allShow lessk59 home& atelier / k59 atelierSelected ProjectsKamikasa House / ALTS DESIGN OFFICESelected Projects Share 2018 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Year: last_img read more

We also want to help families build a source of funds that can involve the next generation in giving.”“All of this takes patience, a long-term view and a solid investment strategy. We are proud of our long term investment performance, which is an important component to generating the money for annual grant distributions. Vanguard has been a great longtime partner to the Foundation throughout the years.”The PCF is a “tax-exempt public charity created by and for the people of Pasadena,” according to its website. The PCF was established in 1953 by local philanthropist Louis A. Webb, who sought to do good with the money he made as an engineer and investor.The Foundation assists Pasadenans’ charitable efforts. A seemingly endless number of charitable causes and organizations can appear overwhelming to those with philanthropic interests. That’s where the PCF comes in.The PCF enables people’s financial goodwill and simplifies the giving process. The foundation will work with families or individuals to establish named funds that serve the issues and causes that matter the most to them.The foundation provides grants and strengthens agencies and community-based organizations in Pasadena, Altadena, and Sierra Madre. The PCF also helps manage the endowments of local non-profit organizations through its Agency Partner Funds program.Whether it be combatting homelessness in Pasadena, strengthening educational institutions, or conserving beautiful parks and gardens, the PCF will help maximize the impacts of donors’ generosity.The PCF currently holds over 350 charitable funds totaling over $80,000,000 in assets, a milestone that was achieved in 2017.The Pasadena Community Foundation is located at 301 E Colorado Blvd #810.
