PM: migrant cap won’t stop inter-firm transfers

first_img Share KCS-content whatsapp PM: migrant cap won’t stop inter-firm transfers DAVID Cameron yesterday said that inter-company transfers would likely be excluded from government plans to cap the number of economic migrants entering the UK from outside the EU. City firms have been calling on the government to exempt transfers within companies, which they say would hinder their ability to compete internationally. Yesterday, the Prime Minister said: “We will try and exempt many of the inter-company transfers from the immigration system.”A temporary cap is in place but an announcement is expected next week on permanent measures from next April.Baroness Jo Valentine, the chief executive of City lobby group London First said: “It’s good news for the economy that government listened to business and excluded international moves within companies from the cap.“We now need to see whether the cap is made flexible enough to enable companies to bring in other highly skilled specialists they need.” Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeCuteness56 Animal Puns For a Quick LaughCutenessUndoBewadaHusband Divorced His Wife After Looking Closer At This PhotoBewadaUndocutenova.comTake a Peek at 10 of the Most Expensive Houses in the Worldcutenova.comUndowomengetfreebies.comGet free samples sent to your home. 100% free.

Affiliate Monitor – June 2020

first_img Affiliate Monitor – June 2020 Tags: Card Rooms and Poker Mobile Online Gambling Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Regions: Asia Europe UK & Ireland India Japan Nordics Southern Europe Sweden Italy In this edition of iGB’s quarterly report we assess the early indications of the impact of Covid-19 on affiliates and find some are faring better than expected Topics: Casino & games Finance Marketing & affiliates Sports betting Poker Email Address In recent times there’s been much discussion about the extent to which any uptick in casino revenues is able to compensate for the drastic fall in sports betting caused by the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.For operators, it’s clear that even if some bettors have moved into other verticals, there’s still a huge gap in their profits.But as the recent numbers put out by affiliates show, this sector of the igaming industry seems to be faring much better.With most of the big affiliates making the majority of their income from casino anyway, the impact of Covid-19 has been less negative for them than it has been for operators. Early numbers from April show some affiliates might even have benefited from the situation.But the pandemic is taking a toll on the more sports-focused affiliates such as Better Collective. And even those affiliates that are more casino-focused have been taking action to protect themselves from the effects of the pandemic, with many expecting its full effects won’t really be felt until later in the year.One theme evident from the first quarter is the need to manage debt levels, with Catena Media, Gaming Innovation Group and Net Gaming Europe all restructuring their finances.It’s not just the pandemic leading affiliates to take steps to protect their businesses; the recent Google algorithm changes continue to cause headaches for affiliates, most notably XLMedia.Interestingly, the actions taken by affiliates to overcome both of the sector’s big issues have resulted in something of a split among the big players when it comes to paid media. Some are investing more heavily in the discipline, while others are withdrawing from it altogether.It will be interesting to see how this divergence continues to develop when second-quarter results become available, which of course will be eagerly awaited because they will provide a clearer picture of the impact of the pandemic on affiliates.We hope you enjoy this report and find it useful.

Microsoft stock: why I’m buying Fundsmith’s top holding for my ISA

first_img US technology stocks are popular with UK investors right now. Apple and Tesla, for example, have been two of the most bought stocks on Hargreaves Lansdown recently.Personally, I’ve been buying Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) stock for my ISA. This tech share – which is the top holding in Terry’s Smith’s Fundsmith portfolio – has an enormous amount of appeal from a long-term investment point of view, in my opinion. Here’s why I like the stock.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…Why I’m buying Microsoft stockOne reason I like MSFT is that it has dominant positions in a number of growth industries.In the business world, it’s a key supplier of productivity solutions. Not only does it own Office (which is now cloud/subscription-based) but it also owns the collaboration platform Microsoft Teams. This means it’s well placed to benefit from the work-from-home trend.Microsoft is also a key player in the cloud computing industry with its Azure business. This is a flexible cloud platform that provides storage, networking, and analytics without the need for costly on-premise server infrastructure. The global cloud computing market is set to grow phenomenally in the years ahead, from around $370bn now to $830bn by 2025. Microsoft is well placed to benefit.Additionally, Microsoft has a dominant position in the video gaming industry. It owns Xbox and has recently been making a number of major acquisitions in the gaming space. Video gaming is a huge industry that is growing rapidly. Microsoft should benefit.Source: StatistaFinally, it also owns a major social media platform in LinkedIn. This has become a key job search and networking platform in recent years.Overall, the dominant positions Microsoft has provide the company with a strong competitive advantage.Fundsmith’s top holdingI also like the look of Microsoft’s financials. Its top line is growing at a very healthy pace. Over the last three years, revenue has climbed from $97bn to $143bn. That represents a compound annual growth rate of about 14%. Looking ahead, analysts forecast revenue of $157bn this year and $175bn next year.Microsoft is also very profitable. Over the last three years, return on capital employed (ROCE) has averaged 20.1%. The company sports a fantastic dividend growth track record. Recently, the company lifted its payout by 10%.Additionally, its balance sheet is very strong. At 30 June, the company had $136.5bn in cash and short-term investments on its books. That will give the company the firepower to make further acquisitions in high-growth industries.All in all, this is a stock that screams ‘quality’ to me. It’s not hard to see why Fundsmith manager Terry Smith – the man they call ‘Britain’s Warren Buffett’ – likes the stock.Microsoft: a growth championMicrosoft’s share price has enjoyed a good run over the last few years. As a result, the stock isn’t a bargain right now. However, I don’t think the current forward-looking P/E ratio is 32 is overly expensive either. For a highly-profitable tech giant with exposure to cloud computing, video gaming, and social media, I don’t think that valuation is unreasonable.I’ve been building up a position in Microsoft stock for a little over a year now. I plan to keep buying more. In my view, Microsoft has all the right ingredients to be a top core holding. Edward Sheldon, CFA | Tuesday, 13th October, 2020 | More on: MSFT Image source: Getty Images.

This port and warehouse area in Tallinn, which was off-limits during the Soviet era, was given to the private sector in the 1990s. It now has the biggest opportunity for redevelopment in the vicinity of the historical Old Town. The triangular site was shaped by the planned extension of a 4-lane artery. Save this picture!© Kalle VeesaarWe saw the challenge to create one of the first living spaces close to the port, offering the residents views and air while at the same time contributing to the public architecturally and urbanistically. The Y-shape building, which has a central corridor, minimises its footprint by avoiding the street alignment of typical block-type apartment buildings. Both the residents and the public on the street share the extra room within the property line. The façade materials are chosen to bring in nature to the area: an exterior panel applied with natural wood veneer, spandrel glass silk-screened with patterns of plants, and glass curtain wall that projects the everyday life of people.

Stepping up harassment of media, Nakhchivan expels Azerbaijani reporter

first_imgNews Reporters Without Borders is appalled by the unacceptable escalation in harassment of themedia by the authorities in Nakhchivan, an autonomous Azerbaijani exclave between Armeniaand Iran, especially last week’s expulsion of Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty reporter YafezHasanov (Яфез Xасанов).Hasanov was abducted on 31 August by three unidentified men in plain-clothes using the kindof car that government security officials normally drive. They drove him to the Iranian border andtold him to return to the Azerbaijani capital of Baku via Iran. If he set foot in Nakhchivan duringthe next month, “it will cost you,” they told him.“After death threats and intimidation, Nakhchivan’s authorities are displaying exceptionalinventiveness in expanding their already complete repressive arsenal against the media,”Reporters Without Borders said.“Their latest invention, deporting a journalist from his own country to one that criminalizesjournalism, shows a complete contempt for legal appearances and a feeling of complete impunity.How far will they have to go before the central government and the international communitydecide to do something to half this escalation?”Hasanov had gone to the Julfa district of Nakhchivan to investigate Turac Zeynalov’s death (see below) indetention, a story that the local authorities are trying at all costs to suppress becauseit exposes the cruelty of the methods they use. Hasanov’s abductors told him not to meddle, tookhis passport and returned it with an exit stamp when they reached the border. Once inside Iran,Hasanov managed to return to Baku by taxi the next day. This entailed a degree of risk as RFE/RL has been classified as an “illegal organization” by the Iranian authorities.Malahat Nasibova (Малахат Насибовa – see below), a Nakhchivan-based reporter for the independent news agency Turan, hasmeanwhile been subjected to intense pressure since receiving a summons from the Ministry ofNational Security (MNS) for trying to interview members of the Zeynalov family.She and her husband have received death threats by telephone and SMS in recent days. Aftershe reported that an MNS official had called her an “enemy of the people,” the official’s motherthreatened her yesterday outside her home. “Who are you to quote my son’s name on theInternet,” the woman said. “You will see what I can do to you. You can do nothing against us. TheMNS supports us.”At a news conference on 2 September, Nasibova described the Nakhchivan AutonomousRepublic as a “laboratory of repression” for the rest of the country. “The repressive methodstested in Nakhchivan are then applied on a larger scale throughout Azerbaijan,” she said. “Itwas in Nakhchivan that demonstrators were first confined to a psychiatric hospital. It was inNakhchivan that journalists were kidnapped for the first time.”There was no comment from the government in Baku in response to her comments about humanrights violations in this remote province. The deafening silence makes an international reaction allthe more urgent, so that violations of this kind do not spread to the rest of the country.Reporters Without Borders joins Nasibova and other journalists and human rights activists inurging the national media and foreign embassy personnel to go to Nakhchivan in order to shedlight on these unacceptable practices.—–30.08.2011 – Authorities in lawless Nakhchivan impose news blackout on detainee’s deathReporters Without Borders is appalled by the way that security officials in Nakhchivan – an autonomous Azerbaijani exclave between Armenia and Iran – have been harassing journalists in an attempt to impose a news blackout on a death in detention and the disappearance of four other young people who had been summoned for questioning.“After eliminating almost all the sources of news and information, Nakhchivan’s security services are carrying out intolerable human rights abuses with complete impunity,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The few independent journalists working there are under a great deal of pressure. The death of a citizen in detention one day after his arrest and the disappearance of four other people are test for the government of Azerbaijan, which signed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and is member of the Council of Europe and the OSCE.” “If the central government in Baku wants to demonstrate its sovereignty over Nakhchivan and it respect for its international obligations, it must immediately ensure that the media are able to operate there and it must rein in the regional authorities, who are resorting to increasingly violent authoritarian methods.”Journalists ran into problems when they tried to investigate the death in detention of Turac Zeynalov, a resident of Arazin, a village in the district of Julfa. While interviewing Zeynalov’s relatives, they were accosted by members of the Ministry of National Security (MNS), who tried to seize their cameras and microphones.Malahat Nasibova, a reporter for the independent news agency Turan, was insulted by an MNS official and accused of collaborating with “the nation’s enemies.” She was then summoned for questioning at MNS headquarters but decided not to go. Reporters Without Borders is concerned about her safety.Zeynalov did not return after responding to an MNS summons on 24 August. His relatives went to the ministry’s headquarters the next day and found his body. It bore the marks of severe beating and torture, especially on the head and face. Officials admitted “slapping him once or twice to teach him a lesson” but an MNS statement said he died “as a result of a cancer.” The family has not received any medical certificate about the cause of death and all their requests for information have met with silence from the authorities.The MNS claimed that Zeynalov committed “high treason” by spying for neighbouring Iran but no evidence of this has been produced and Nakhchivan’s authorities have refused to make any other comment aside from cautioning against “rumours.”In response to questions from journalists, the Azerbaijani interior minister in Baku said “Baku cannot interfere in Nakhchivan’s affairs.” It was the news agency Turan that reported that four other young people have disappeared after recently being summoned by the MNS.An increase in tension between Azerbaijan and Iran is just the latest pretext for a crackdown in Nakhchivan, where harassment of journalists has been on the increase recently (see below). Arbitrary detention, confinement in psychiatric hospitals and torture are all common in this autonomous territory.
