Mandelson, who once said Diamond was the “unacceptable face of banking”, is understood to have offered only “informal advice” and did not receive any payments for his services.Diamond made waves at the Treasury select committee, where he was grilled by influential MPs, by suggesting it was time for banks to stop apologising for their role in the financial crisis. Mandelson, who managed Labour’s unsuccessful re-election campaign, has taken a handful of private sector jobs after new leader Ed Miliband effectively closed the door on a return to front bench politics.

2 costly retirement mistakes I’d avoid now!

first_img Many people spend countless hours worrying about how they’ll be able to afford their retirement. Therefore today I’d like to discuss how to possibly avoid two potential retirement errors that affect many adults.1. Not knowing how you will pay for retirementThe first mistake most people make is not knowing how they will pay for retirement. And part of the of the reason is that they may actually have unrealistic views of how much retirement may cost. 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…One suggestion is that you’ll need between half and two-thirds of the salary you earned before retirement. A safe range would be between £24,000 and £28,000 a year. This amount assumes that you do not have any mortgage or rental payments to make in retirement.Let us assume that starting at age 65, you’ll need £28,000 per year and you expect to live for another 25 years after retirement. Let us also leave your potential State Pension or any other private pension income aside for now.One way to calculate how much in savings you’d need is to multiply £28,000 by 25. The result is £700,000. This calculation further assumes that the £700,000 will earn no interest income.In other words, if you’d like to finance your retirement fully with your savings, simply multiply the amount you’d need per year by 25.You may also be entitled to the State Pension or have other streams of income, such as from rental property or a private pension. The important takeaway is to be realistic about how much money you will need in retirement.2. Not knowing how to save £0.7m by age 65The other error most people make is not appreciating how important it is to start saving and investing early on when you can take maximum advantage of compound interest.My Motley Fool colleagues point out that the stock market returns about 7% to 9% annually on average, much more than the best regular savings account. An important part of that return comes from dividends.Research also shows that investors who purchase dividend-growth stocks and reinvest the dividends to buy more shares are likely to see considerable growth in their savings.Let us assume that you’re now aged 40 with only £100 in savings and that you plan to retire at 65.You decide to invest that £100 in a FTSE 100 tracker fund now and make an additional £9,000 of contributions annually at the start of each year. You have 25 years to invest. The average annual return is 8%, compounded once a year. At the end of 25 years, the total amount saved becomes £711,274.Saving £9,000 a year would need you to put aside almost £750 a month or about £25 a day. Although the amount may look daunting at first, you’d be surprised at how much you could save if you paid attention to your monthly outgoings.Several shares I’m watching nowChoosing which stocks to invest in for the long haul can initially feel difficult, especially for new investors. But the FTSE 100 index offers many stocks some mix of dividends, growth, and stability, At present, tobacco firm Imperial Brands offers a yield of about 11.2%. If you are looking at banks, current dividends for HSBC Holdings and Lloyds Bank stand respectively at 6.8% and 5.7%. At the lower end, pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca, whose share price has been on the rise in recent months, pays a 2.8% dividend yield.

Our first decision regarding how to approach the design of a house in Campos do Jordão , a city of temperate climate 1.600 meters above sea level in the mountains near São Paulo, was to avoid the local widespread European alps style. We wanted to hear what the earth asked for with its trees and people. We found a place rich in crafty workers, a lush nature with beautiful altitude pine trees called ARAUCARIA and a climate that is dry and cold most of the year.Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Leonardo FinottiThe building shape sprouted like a fallen PINHÃO, one of the many particles that form the fruit of the local ARAUCARIA trees. An organic sinuous form that seems to weave through the trees and winds. Instead of stairs, ramps. Instead of corridors, compressions and expansions of the internal sculptural contiguous spaces. This manipulation of the spaces together with the use of ramps enhances the importance of the sensorial experience of the architecture. The elliptical plan of the social level that also contains an indoor SPA with a swimming pool and sauna is very fluid and defined the built volume of the house. Below, the social level is reached via a ramp that dims the light towards the most introspective space in the house, the wine cellar.Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiThe entrance hall lies at this level providing the opposite experience for those ascending the ramp towards the living room. A narrow dimly lit curved ramp is gradually flooded with light and astonishing views. Above the social level, there are four suites and a home office with 180 degrees views of the surrounding mountains and native ARAUCARIA trees. The upper roof and its complex geometry is a clear reference to the above-mentioned PINHÃO. We specified natural materials as wood, bricks and stone to enhance the organic nature of the project.Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiSave this picture!SectionsSave this picture!© Leonardo FinottiThe chosen materials, such as stone and wood, create warm and cozy interiors, and at the same time, they offered the artisans of Campos de Jordão a unique opportunity to develop their talent, ability, and originality.

Noi’s return lifts Horned Frogs to critical win over No. 19 Iowa State

He has worked for TCU360 since his freshman year and is currently the executive editor. Twitter printIn his first game back from an ankle injury, Noi led all scorers with 20 points, including four three pointers. Photo by Heesoo Yang. The Horned Frogs season and NCAA tournament aspirations looked to be slipping away in the second half against No. 19 Iowa State, but Kouat Noi wouldn’t let it happen. Trailing by four after a 7-0 Cyclone run, the redshirt sophomore’s three pointer with 7:31 left in the game cut the Cyclones lead to one and started an 11-2 TCU run that gave the Horned Frogs a lead they wouldn’t relinquish en route to a 75-72 win. Although Iowa State would cut the lead to just one with 41 seconds left, a JD Miller contested layup gave the Horned Frogs a three point advantage and effectively ended the game. Miller tied his season-high with 17 points. The senior made the game-winning shot earlier this season against Oklahoma State and knows he has the confidence of his teammates when the game is on the line. JD Miller tied a season-high with 17 points. Photo by Heesoo Yang. “I just do my job out there,” he said. “My teammates feed me the ball down low and they expect me to go to work and that is what I try to do.”The win snapped a three-game losing streak for the team and marked their second-straight win over a ranked team this season, both against Iowa State. Noi finished with a game-high 20 points and 13 rebounds in his return from an ankle injury that kept him out of the last two games, both losses. Noi’s loss was especially hard on a Horned Frog team that has lost four players to transfer and another to a season-ending injury, leaving them with only seven players in their rotation. “When you have ten and you lose one that doesn’t have as much as an impact,” TCU head coach Jamie Dixon said. “When you have seven and you lose one, especially one that plays a couple positions and your offense is kind of based around having him out there, that’s a big difference.”Noi, Bane, Miller and Alex Robinson all played more than 34 of the game’s 40 minutes. Along with timely baskets down the stretch, the Horned Frogs defense prevented the Cyclones offense from entering a rhythm all afternoon. Iowa State shot just 2-of-20 from the thre“They missed some open ones, but when you look at how they’re a three-point shooting team, and they had 20 of their 70 shots, it means you probably weren’t giving them any good looks,” Dixon said. Along with limiting the Cyclones from deep, the Horned Frogs’ rebounding proved decisive. They out-rebounded Iowa State 42-37 for 16 offensive rebounds that resulted in 13 second-chance points, including Noi’s momentum-shifting three with 7:31 left in the second half. The win injected a sense of confidence into a TCU team that saw its season crumbling as injuries mounted and a three game losing streak placed them toward the bottom of the Big 12. “Our goals haven’t changed, granted no one’s probably lost as many guys as we have, the goals haven’t changed and our expectations haven’t changed,” Dixon said. “We needed the win.”Bane pointed to the Horned Frogs’ veteran leadership as the reason for how they were able to get through the losing streak and come out on top of a ranked opponent. “We got a lot of veteran guys, guys that have been through this,” he said. “Coach Dixon refers to it as the dog days. Whoever can come together at this time is usually the team that comes out on top.” The team will look to carry the momentum from the win on the road to take on West Virginia. Tip-off is set for 6 p.m. Tuesday in Morgantown. Desmond Bane scored 16 points on 6-8 shooting, including a crucial three in the second half.

A leading press freedom predator dies

first_img Help by sharing this information December 19, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 A leading press freedom predator dies The death of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il, who was on the Reporters Without Borders list of “Predators of Press Freedom,” raises many questions about the future of freedom of the media and information in North Korea. Kim died during a train trip on 17 December, state TV announced today. Receive email alerts Journalists face archaic sanction of capital punishment in some parts of the world Follow the news on North Korea RSF_en News North KoreaAsia – Pacific to go further July 6, 2020 Find out more North KoreaAsia – Pacific As doubt persists on North Korea’s “zero” coronavirus cases, RSF urges for transparency News News Organisation “After this press freedom predator’s death, our attention turns to his third son and declared successor, Kim Jong-un,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It is very hard to predict what his policies on basic freedoms will be. Neither the years he spent in a school in Switzerland nor his very young age, which could mean he is easily influenced, offer any clues. We are very worried by the reports circulating about him, including reports of his severity towards those who smuggle foreign electronic media content into North Korea.“A lot will depend on his legitimacy with the People’s Army and Workers’ Party, the regime’s two pillars. Kim Jong-un has not had the benefit of the same national propaganda and prior experience as his father, who had been prepared from the 1970s onwards to take over. Refugees who fled North Korea before 2009 say they were unaware of his existence prior to their departure. It is therefore not inconceivable that the regime could adopt adopt forceful and even radical political measures in a bid to legitimize him in the eyes of senior officials and the North Korean population.”After Kim Jong-il’s health was undermined by a stroke in August 2008, he cut back on his activities and his public appearance became more infrequent. In September 2010, Kim Jong-un was promoted to the rank of four-star army general and named as vice chairman of the Party’s Central Military Commission, paving the way for a transfer of power.An “Enemy oh the Internet”, North Korea continues to be the world’s most closed country and for the past 10 years has ranked last or second from last in the Reporters Without Borders world press freedom index. The news media are all state-owned and exclusively serve the anachronistic and paranoid regime’s propaganda needs.After visiting the South Korean capital of Seoul last July to investigation the situation of the media and freedom of information in North Korea, Reporters Without Borders issued a report entitled “North Korea: Frontiers of censorship.” It found that there had been an increase in the flow of news and information into North Korea thanks both to foreign radio stations and NGOs that send multimedia content across the border.Since 2009, Reporters Without Borders has been supporting Seoul-based radio stations such as Free North Korea Radio, Radio Free Chosun and Open Radio for North Korea, which are the main sources of independent news and information available to the North Korean population. Operating since the mid-2000s, they are the first radio stations run by North Korean refugees to broadcast to the population in the north.As part of a campaign against Kim Jong-il as a Predator of Press Freedom, Reporters Without Borders and several independent media gave a news conference in Seoul on 16 February, his last birthday. The aim of the campaign was to urge the South Korean authorities and civil society to increase their support for the North Korean refugee radio stations that try to break through the wall of propaganda and political control.

Zillow Group to Acquire ShowingTime

first_imgSign up for DS News Daily Zillow Group to Acquire ShowingTime Zillow Group has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire ShowingTime.com, Inc., an online scheduling platform for home showings, for $500 million.”Touring is one of the most important steps in the home shopping and selling journey, according to a Zillow press release, “and ShowingTime’s technology has streamlined and dramatically improved the touring experience.”Zillow Group says it will continue to invest in ShowingTime and increase its engagement among agents and partners.”We have been impressed with ShowingTime’s ability to simplify a cumbersome but critical part of the home shopping experience by integrating with MLSs, agents, and brokers, and giving buyers’ agents an easier way to schedule showings with listing agents,” said Errol Samuelson, Chief Industry Development Officer at Zillow Group. “ShowingTime will remain an open platform available to all industry participants, and we expect to grow ShowingTime’s engagement through all channels to ensure touring is easier for the industry and consumers.”ShowingTime has a network of nearly one million agents across North America and has developed relationships with hundreds of Multiple Listing Services (MLSs).

In 2020, the company facilitated more than 50 million showings industry-wide. Agents can update their listings’ availability for showings through the network, enabling interested buyers’ agents to schedule home tours online with the click of a button.ShowingTime’s technology will help increase tour volume and transactions for industry partners, including Premier Agents. Many Zillow Premier Agents are already using ShowingTime and value the ease it brings in scheduling tours. Zillow shoppers who request tours are high-intent buyers, and ShowingTime’s service enables more seamless tours for those buyers and sellers.”This is a pivotal moment in real estate, and customer expectations for a simplified, tech-enabled experience are rising,” said Mike Lane, President of ShowingTime. “The ShowingTime technology serves nearly a million real estate professionals, and we look forward to sharing our technology solutions with even more customers, enabling a truly seamless real estate transaction that is efficient and simple.”The acquisition will accelerate adoption of ShowingTime’s technology as home shoppers and sellers, agents and industry partners move toward a more efficient, digital future.ShowingTime will maintain its existing data privacy policies and continue to operate as an open platform for its existing and new partners—many of whom already use other industry offerings from Zillow Group, such as Dotloop and Bridge Interactive.The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including the expiration or termination of the applicable waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act.

The Single Bench of Justice Sanjeev Sachdeva has issued notices to Securities Exchange Board of India, and ICRA Limited. ICRA Limited is an Indian independent and professional investment information and credit rating agency. As per the plea, ICRA Limited has downgraded Petitioner’s credit rating directly or indirectly in view of circular issued by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) dated 30.03.2020. Appearing for the Petitioner, Senior Advocate Rajiv Nayyar argued that in light of the ongoing nationwide lockdown and advisories issued by the government, there is an emergent situation due to which necessary requisite details as sought by ICRA in their emails could not be provided. Mr Nayyar further submitted that in terms of the advisory dated 30.03.2020 issued by SEBI there is relaxation from compliance with certain circulars issued, due to COVID-19 pandemic and the moratorium permitted by RBI. He submitted: ‘Instead of giving further time to the petitioner to respond and complying with the circular issued by SEBI, ICRA is threatening to go ahead with the credit review and is proposing to downgrade the credit rating of the Petitioner which is likely to have serious negative impact on the financial standing of the petitioner and there is a likelihood that the debenture holder may call for immediate redemption of the debentures of the Petitioner, thereby causing financial stress.’ The court has asked the Petitioner to intimate both the respondents about the issuance of the notice. Meanwhile, the court has restrained ICRA from uploading any decision with regard to the credit rating of the Petitioner on its website or giving effect to it till the next date of hearing. The matter will next be taken up on April 06.

Kobe Bryant discusses his new fantasy books

first_imgApril 10, 2019 /Sports News – National Kobe Bryant discusses his new fantasy books Beau Lund Written bycenter_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailEddie Perlas / ESPN Images(NEW YORK) — After leaving the court in 2016, basketball legend Kobe Bryant dove into his more artistic side: first writing the Oscar-winning Dear Basketball and now creating a whole series of books for young people. His new book The Wizenard Series: Training Camp was released just last month, and has already found its way onto the New York Times bestsellers list. Bryant told ABC News’ Good Morning America that he gets “a lot” of eye rolls when he tries to tell people about the series, which has been described as a Harry Potter-style fantasy mixed with the Olympics. “It’s strange right?” he quipped. “Ok, Kobe’s now writing fantasy novels and creating fantasy novels.”But Bryant says he is passionate about wanting to help young people to process their emotions and fears, and plus, says he is a “huge, huge Harry Potter fan.” One way he hopes to help young people process emotions is by helping them find something they are passionate about. “If you can wrap it around something that they are passionate about — basketball or volleyball or soccer — and teach life lessons through the sport,” he said. “Then it’s more powerful.” “And that’s what I try to do with the Wizenard series,” Bryant added.“I was very fortunate to have basketball, but even more fortunate to find storytelling after,” he said. “Because I really, really love this.” What comes next for the retired sports legend? Well, probably not Dancing With the Stars, he said. “My knees would be like, ‘Dude, what are you doing? we just went through 20 years of beating me up — Don’t dance,’” he said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
