Boris in advanced talks with mobile firms over getting signal on the Tube

first_img whatsapp Sunday 19 September 2010 10:11 pm Share whatsapp MAYOR of London Boris Johnson is nearing an agreement with the UK’s biggest mobile phone operators to provide a network signal on the entire Tube network by the time the Olympics come to London in 2012, it emerged at the weekend.Johnson is still in discussions with the companies over the final details of funding for the project, which City Hall reiterated yesterday would need to be borne entirely through mobile operators with no cost to fare or taxpayers.However, the preferred option is thought to be an agreement whereby the UK’s five largest mobile operators – Vodafone, Orange, O2, T-Mobile and 3 – would share the cost of installing the project.While technically possible to install network equipment in the deep-level underground tunnels and stations, project costs have so far proved prohibitively high.The Greater London Authority said yesterday that finding a solution “remains dependent on the market providing a credible proposal that satisfies both technical and commercial considerations”.Johnson’s predecessor Ken Livingstone also held talks with phone operators over installing a Tube network, but the plans never came to fruition. At the time, he said the winning operator would have to pay TfL for the privilege.

Don’t ‘save’ for retirement! Here’s how I’d invest £250 a month to make a million

first_img I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. 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. Plans to make a million by saving £250 per month in a savings account could lead to disappointment. After all, savings rates are currently low, and are likely to remain at a low ebb for a number of years.By contrast, many UK shares currently trade at low prices that suggest they offer high return prospects in a likely stock market recovery. Through buying a diverse range of them over time, it may be possible to build a seven-figure portfolio within an investor’s working lifetime.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…Holding cash to make a millionWith interest rates currently near zero, cash is unlikely to be a path to make a million for many people. For example, even assuming a saver can obtain a 1% interest rate on their cash, it would take around 147 years for a £250 monthly investment to be worth in excess of £1m. Clearly, it is an unrealistic option for anyone!Of course, this assumes that interest rates will not rise in that time. History suggests that they will. However, the pace at which they increase could be relatively slow. Policymakers may be wary of holding back economic growth after what has been an exceptionally challenging period. This may even mean that interest rates lag inflation. In such a situation, an individual’s spending power could decrease and their prospects to make a million could fade so that they are unable to achieve the level of financial freedom they had hoped for.Investing money in shares to make £1mInvesting in shares is likely to be a more effective means to make a million. The stock market has a long track record of generating high returns. Even though the FTSE 100 still trades lower now than it did at the start of 2020, it has still been able to produce annualised total returns of around 8% since its inception in 1984. Assuming the same rate of return on a £250 monthly investment would lead to a portfolio valued at £1m within 42 years. As such, it is a far more realistic means of obtaining a seven-figure portfolio.Of course, many UK shares currently offer good value for money after the 2020 stock market crash. This means that they may offer return potential that is higher than the wider market. For example, banking stocks such as Lloyds and Barclays trade significantly lower than their net asset values, while retailers such as Sainsbury’s and Morrisons may offer good value for money ahead of a likely shift towards online grocery retailing.As such, buying a selection of undervalued UK shares now could increase an investor’s chances to make a million. Certainly, that process is likely to take many years. But, through having a diverse portfolio of shares, it could come much quicker than would be the case from holding cash in a low-interest savings account.

Kunonga and his supporters seized cars, churches, orphanges and other properties belonging to the CPCA claiming they belonged to him. Recently Zimbabwe’s Supreme Court ruled that he should return all the properties to the Diocese of Harare.Anglican Bishop of Harare, the Rt Revd Chad Gandiya recalled the challenging times that the church went through. He said that, “all those five years we were driven from our churches and went into exile, life was not easy but God was with us. We survived and found grace in exile.”Bp Gandiya was full of joy when he called on Anglicans to help rebuild the diocese. He said, “Come, let us rebuild our diocese. As we journey from the past, pressing on towards the goal together, there is a lot of work to be done in the area of rebuilding our diocese. A lot of our churches and schools and other institutions are in need of renovation after years of neglect.”The Primate of the Province, Archbishop Albert Chama, encouraged all Christians from the Diocese of Harare to continue being a testimony to the works of God. He said, “You are going back to your churches to worship God in dignity as it was intended to be. Be strong as you are a testimony to the rest of the church. Continue and never relent because wherever we are we say we are learning from the church in Zimbabwe.”The head of the worldwide Anglican Communion Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Rowan Williams sent a congratulatory message to the Diocese of Harare. In it he said, “I am absolutely delighted to be able to send my warmest congratulations on this momentous day for the Diocese of Harare, the Church of the Province of Central Africa and the whole of the worldwide Anglican Communion.”He added, “You have faced threats of violence and arrest and yet your faith has not weakened, rather it has grown stronger. I want to commend particularly the leadership of Bishop Chad Gandiya and Bishop Sebastian Bakare before him, as they have embodied authentic Christian servant-hearted leadership. Through all this, your faith has been a beacon of light to the rest of the Anglican Communion.”A young Anglican from the Diocese of Harare Takunda Zvaita could not hide her joy on living to see this day. “This is freedom for us,” she said. “We have learned a lot in exile. There is a vibrant Anglican Church that has been growing because of the exile and we have even improved our praise and worship.”Anglicans in the Diocese of Harare have not been able to worship in their churches ever since their buildings were seized five years ago. Many of them have only been able to worship in open air, under trees and any other areas they could find.The service ended with the official opening of the Cathedral, it’s cleansing and rededication back to God.

McDonald, subdirector de operaciones y director de misión de la DFMS.“La importancia es que ésta es la primera subvención cuantiosa que la DFMS ha hecho en apoyo a la sostenibilidad”, dijo McDonald.Desde 2013, la DFMS ha estado trabajando con todas las diócesis de la IX Provincia —la República Dominicana, Ecuador Central, Ecuador Litoral, Colombia, Venezuela, Honduras y Puerto Rico— para desarrollar un plan de autosostén y además garantizar sus ministerios.El plan de 18 años para garantizar la misión y el ministerio en la IX Provincia es coherente con la segunda de las Cinco Marcas de la Misión de la Comunión Anglicana: enseñar, bautizar y formar a nuevos creyentes. El presupuesto del actual trienio se basó en las Cinco Marcas de la Misión.Las diócesis de la IX Provincia adoptaron el autosostén como un punto focal en 2012; además de la República Dominicana, Honduras y Ecuador Central han hecho avances significativos para garantizar su misión y ministerio.El presupuesto 2013-2015 asignó $2,9 millones en subvenciones globales a lo largo del trienio y también incluyó $1 millón adicional para la IX Provincia con el objetivo de “fortalecer a la provincia para una misión sostenible”.El Plan de sostenibilidad de la IX Provincia fue adoptado por el Consejo Ejecutivo en 2014.A la Convención General se le pedirá mediante la Resolución A015 que continúe su apoyo del plan en el trienio 2016-2018.El plan de la 2ª. Marca significa un notable cambio en el enfoque de la Iglesia para ayudar a las diócesis extranjeras, y fue un resultado directo de la labor de sostenibilidad que comenzó en 2011 durante una conferencia en Tela, Honduras, que reunió a las diócesis de la IX Provincia para explorar la sostenibilidad, dijo McDonald.“El aspecto realmente notable del plan de la Marca de la Misión… es el valiente liderazgo y la visión de los dirigentes de la diócesis de la IX Provincia. Si bien a menudo conversamos acerca de ‘garantizar el ministerio’ y de ‘planes sostenibles’, los líderes de la IX Provincia opinan que es bueno para la vida espiritual de la IX Provincia. Están rompiendo los viejos modelos coloniales de dependencia y conduciéndonos a todos a un modelo de ministerio que se asienta en la asociación, dijo McDonald. “Esa es la verdadera visión de este trabajo”.Cada una de las diócesis de la IX Provincia contemplada en el plan recibirá finalmente una subvención específica basada en un plan estratégico para el autosostén, además de las subvenciones globales que se distribuyen anualmente.En los próximos años, el monto de la subvención global recibida por la República Dominicana irá decreciendo y dentro de diez años cesará. Lo mismo ocurrirá con las restantes diócesis de la IX Provincia en la medida en que alcancen la sostenibilidad económica. Según cada diócesis se hace sostenible, se compromete a trabajar con las otras diócesis de la provincia para ayudarles a alcanzar el mismo objetivo.“Le damos infinitas gracias a Dios por la iniciativa de la Obispa Primada y la Convención General de designar los fondos para contribuir a que las diócesis de la IX Provincia se liberen gradualmente de la dependencia económica, al tomar sus propias iniciativas, que conducen a la sostenibilidad de la misión en sus respectivos lugares”, dijo Holguín,La [Diócesis de la] República Dominicana recibió la primera subvención específica porque la diócesis tenía una un plan vigente y había avanzado más en el camino de la sostenibilidad económica.Por ejemplo, en la República Dominicana:Las congregaciones locales, la mayoría de las cuales tienen recursos limitados, han comenzado a asumir responsabilidades por algunos de sus propios costos, mayordomía, servicios públicos, mantenimiento, salarios del clero, educación cristiana y programas sociales.Las congregaciones han comenzado programas empresariales.Las escuelas, centros de conferencia e instituciones de la diócesis continúan creciendo conforme a sus propias capacidades administrativas y los servicios que ofrecen, aumentando así sus ingresos y su contribución a la diócesis y su misión en el país.El Grupo Dominicano de Desarrollo y el subsidio anual de la Iglesia Episcopal brindan ayuda continua.En 1998, se creó el Grupo Dominicano de Desarrollo con el objetivo fundamental de buscar los “recursos humanos, materiales y económicos que se necesitan para mantener el índice de crecimiento de la diócesis y proporcionarle a la diócesis la capacidad de conservar programas de calidad”.En el transcurso de unos 15 años, el GDD ha recaudado más de $10 millones para financiar la construcción de infraestructuras, incluidas iglesias, escuelas, guarderías infantiles y clínicas en la República Dominicana. Se alza como un modelo de empresarismo a través de la IX Provincia.La subvención específica de $950.000 servirá para apoyar los fondos que ya existen en la diócesis, los cuales están invertidos en los mercados financieros locales de la República Dominicana. Actualmente, la economía dominicana es una de las de más rápido crecimiento en América Latina.En 2014, la diócesis ganó un rédito de un 15 por ciento sobre su inversión. Su plan de sostenibilidad estipula que el 20 por ciento de las ganancias se añada al activo de la diócesis, dijo Holguín.— Lynette Wilson es redactora y reportera de Episcopal News Service.

No stopping protests against Philadelphia Orchestra’s Israeli tour

first_imgFor the third week in a row, demonstrators gathered outside the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia on April 21 to protest the Philharmonic Orchestra’s planned visit to Israel in June.  The visit is part of a “cultural tour” to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Israel’s occupation of Indigenous Palestinian lands. The orchestra’s “cultural” itinerary includes a tour of an Israeli Defense Forces base.Earlier in April, Philly Don’t Orchestrate Apartheid was launched to galvanize opposition to the tour.  The tour is fully funded and supported by the Jewish Federation as part of a decade-long “Brand Israel” campaign to shift global public perceptions about Israel and cover up the realities of its brutal colonial apartheid occupation of Palestine.Outside the Kimmel Center, classical music provided a background for a video played on a screen so concertgoers could witness the Zionist violence that Israeli troops and settlers inflict on Palestinian people, even children.Activists held signs, chanted and handed out fliers explaining why the trip should be canceled. Speakers addressed concertgoers as they entered the Kimmel Center to hear the orchestra. Demonstrators chanted, “Cancel your trip to Apartheid Israel!”The PDOA demonstrations coincided with “Right of Return” protests in Gaza, where Israeli soldiers have fired on hundreds of Palestinian demonstrators, with the intent to kill and maim, murdering over 30 to date.  The Gaza protests are aimed at breaking an inhumane border blockade imposed by Israel in 2007 that turned Gaza into an “open air prison.”Israeli soldiers firing April 21 from across a border fence killed four Palestinians, including a 15-year-old boy, and wounded more than 150 others, health officials said.  These crimes occurred as several thousand people in blockaded Gaza staged a fourth round of weekly protests on the Israeli border.On the same day as the protest against the orchestra’s planned trip, Israeli Deputy Knesset Speaker Bezalel Smotrich of the Habayit Hayehudi party posted an insulting tweet about Ahed Tamimi, the Palestinian teenager famed for slapping an Israeli soldier on camera. “In my opinion, she should have gotten a bullet, at least in the kneecap,” he wrote. “That would have put her under house arrest for the rest of her life.” (scribd.com, April 23)PDOA has launched an online petition campaign calling on the orchestra to cancel its trip.

EPA, in which the Court found EPA vastly exceeded its authority in granting compliance exemptions to three refineries from 2016 and 2018 Renewable Fuel Standard obligations. The new deadline for requesting a rehearing in the Tenth Circuit is March 24.The petitioners in the case—the Renewable Fuels Association, National Corn Growers Association, American Coalition for Ethanol, and National Farmers Union—offered the following statement:“We are very disappointed that the Administration has opted to kick the can on deciding whether to appeal the court decision, as all initial indications suggested EPA would not appeal the ruling and would correctly apply the decision nationally. This delay just prolongs uncertainty in the marketplace and stokes more angst and frustration in farm country. Still, we are hopeful the Administration will take this additional time to thoroughly review the court’s well-reasoned, unambiguous decision and carefully consider the adverse consequences of appealing. It is our hope that cooler heads prevail and that the White House reaches the logical conclusion that an appeal is both imprudent and unnecessary. Joining three refineries—who represent less than 1 percent of the nation’s oil refining capacity—in their appeal would be a rash and risky decision for the Administration. In fact, many oil refiners and the American Petroleum Institute have joined farmers and the ethanol industry in opposing an appeal and advocating for nationwide application of the court decision. An appeal by the Administration would be viewed by rural America as a senseless poke in the eye and a breach of the President’s commitments on ethanol and the Renewable Fuel Standard.”As EPA continues to mull an appeal, it may come under pressure from small refineries to act on pending retroactive small refinery exemption requests for 2019. EPA may immediately deny pending 2019 exemption petitions that don’t comport with the court’s ruling, but it certainly cannot approve any of the pending petitions within the Tenth Circuit unless they meet the unambiguous requirements for approval laid out by the court. Nationwide application of the Tenth Circuit’s opinion by EPA would in this instance provide a level playing field and help restore stability and certainty to the RIN markets.In its motion, the Department of Justice stated, “The extension of time is necessary to allow the United States an opportunity to determine whether, and to what extent, the government will file a petition for rehearing en banc in this case.” The motion also acknowledges that the Court decision “…alters EPA’s interpretation and practice, which has been employed in the adjudication of past exemption petitions from many small refineries. The Court’s interpretation…could also have significant practical impacts on the RFS program going forward.” Of course, that the Tenth Circuit’s decision may alter EPA’s practices or have significant practical impacts does not mean the opinion is any less well-reasoned or persuasive—it merely indicates the extent to which EPA had been exceeding its statutory authority.The petitioners also noted that the Court’s ruling comes less than a month after HollyFrontier announced it had returned $758 million to shareholders in 2019, with $533 million in stock buybacks. CVR Energy told investors it “delivered solid 2019 full-year and fourth quarter results…Our petroleum business again posted increased earnings year-over-year, driven by higher throughput rates, increased capture rates and higher refining margins despite lower crack spreads.” Yet, these are the same companies claiming they have disproportionate economic hardship compared to other refineries. As documented in a recent study by a Colorado State University economist, granting unwarranted exemptions to certain small refineries results in a windfall for their owners and an unlevel playing field in the refining sector.Source: National Corn Growers Association Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitterlast_img read more
