whatsapp KCS-content Jeremy Hunt lays out his vision for local TV network in the UK Share Culture secretary Jeremy Hunt yesterday laid out his plans to introduce a network of local TV stations in the UK.The radical shake-up will see private firms bid for a new channel that will broadcast local news for several hours a day, alongside a national schedule. It will be funded with advertising and likely some licence-fee cash. The move could be good news for ITV, which could be given the green light to strip back or even axe its costly regional news programming.Hunt says he will ensure the local station – dubbed channel 6 – is given a prominent position in electronic programme guides.He said: “For consumers, what this will mean is a new channel dedicated to the provision of local news and content – one that will sit alongside other public service broadcasters, offering a new voice for local communities, with local perspectives that are directly relevant to them.” Wednesday 19 January 2011 7:08 pm by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’DefinitionTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

It really is possible to make a million by investing in FTSE 100 stocks, and you don’t have to be a genius to do it. You do need one thing, though. Time. If you have enough of it, and put it to good use, you really can build a million-pound portfolio.Too many investors, especially novices, see investing in shares as a way to get rich quickly. They couldn’t be more wrong. The FTSE 100 is actually a get-rich-slow mechanism. Your wealth builds gradually, over time. 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…I’d say this is a very good time to investThat is the first reason why I would say right now is a good time to buy FTSE 100 stocks. The sooner you start investing, the better your chances of making a sizeable sum.Some will be tempted to hold off a little, until current volatility has passed. The problem is, how long do you wait? As I write this, the FTSE 100 stands at 6,158. Do you wait until it drops below 6,000? 5,500? 5,000?You will drive yourself mad waiting for the index to hit the right level. Even if it does, you may still be reluctant to buy, in the hope it will fall further and you will pick up FTSE 100 shares at an even lower price.The other danger is that it hits 6,500 or 7,000. If it does that, your buying opportunity will have gone, and you will be even further away from making a million. Or whatever your target.The second reason I would say now is a good time to buy FTSE 100 stocks is that many top companies are currently trading at bargain valuations. Although the market has recovered by around 20%, it is still 20% lower than at the start of the year. So you are picking up shares at a discounted price.I’d buy FTSE 100 stocks todayNow there are good reasons for that fall, of course. Covid-19 is a true black swan event. It has hammered FTSE 100 stocks and cast a shadow over the entire global economy. We do not know how long the recession will last, or whether we will be hit by a second wave of infections. Some top companies will struggle to recover.At the same time, others will take the opportunity to cut out the fat and restructure. They may emerge stronger, leaner operations, and buy up weaker rivals at reduced prices. A recession throws up winners, as well as losers.FTSE 100 shares tend to rise ahead of the recovery. If you wait until today’s uncertainty has passed, you will have missed the early stages of the stock market rebound. That is usually when investors make the fastest returns. Anybody who screwed up the courage to buy shares in late March (as Motley Fool was urging) have done well.When is the best time to buy FTSE 100 stocks? If you are serious about making £1m, the answer is as soon as you can.Then prepare to buy more. Is now a good time to invest in FTSE 100 stocks? It is if you want to make a million Harvey Jones | Saturday, 30th May, 2020 5 Stocks For Trying To Build Wealth After 50 Click here to claim your free copy of this special investing report now!

This project has as its ambition the reinvention of the collective habitat by integrating the scale and quality of the individual habitat within a dense and flexible structure.

Its interior spaces can accommodate apartments or offices, such as ateliers.Save this picture!© ArtefactorylabSave this picture!SectionNo space has a prescribed, determinate function. As a result of the precise lack of programming, it remains open to the spatial interpretations of the residents, either for life or for work. The flexibility of the structure allows for different surfaces to mingle through the play of terraces, circulation and airy loggia. On the interior, the reversibility is as spatial as it is prescribed. It passes through a reinterpretation of the technical and urban rules that tend to fix architecture in place and compartmentalize activities, in order to maximize the independence and freedom of the residents.Save this picture!© ArtefactorylabEach unit possesses its own facade, and these spread over the entire building like variations of a rational catalogue, a series of architectural phrases whose invisible grammar was thoughtfully drafted.Save this picture!© ArtefactorylabProject gallerySee allShow lessAugmented Bricklaying / Gramazio Kohler ResearchSelected ProjectsK.

Tagged with: contactless “I have no doubt that this paper will help to clear some of the confusion around contactless; helping fundraisers make more effective decisions and enabling them to address the rapidly evolving contactless landscape with greater confidence.”Digital copies of the full report are available by emailing [email protected] 389 total views, 2 views today UK contactless technology provider GoodBox has published a white paper giving an insight into the effectiveness of contactless fundraising, based on the experiences of its charity clients.Contactless Technology: Worth the Investment? was launched at Fundraising Convention on Tuesday 2 July, and is the first in a two-part series supported by the IoF.GoodBox both rents and sells contactless hardware, as well as delivering purpose-built solutions for spaces with heavy footfall such as museums, art galleries, places of worship and hospitals.It analysed its client performance under several different metrics; including purchased, rented and purpose-built devices, and found that in less than a year purchased devices produced an overall ROI of 340% for its clients, while rentals have produced an overall ROI of 212%, and purpose-built devices 1,384%.Looking at its charity clients’ experiences with purchased devices, it found that in total, the 25 organisations in the study that had bought devices spent £69,035 on the upfront cost of contactless technology with the technology yielding £303,967 in returns so far to give the ROI of 340%.84% of these organisations saw a full return on investment within 12 months. GoodBox estimates that they will have made a return on their investment of 2,485% within five years – the expected lifespan of a GoodBox device.The 35 organisations in the study that rented GoodBox devices raised a total of £53,849, having spent £17,225 on the cost of renting hardware – a total of 212% return on investment. Renting for a week is roughly one tenth the price of buying a device outright, according to GoodBox’s figures, which also show higher levels of profitability for devices rented over a shorter period of time, due to the devices being used for targeted events.Andrew O’Brien, CEO GoodBox commented:“GoodBox is founded on the belief that in order to prosper, charities must have equal access to cutting-edge technologies. However, for charities to put their trust in innovation, is it essential that we increase access to relevant data. This white paper provides ground-breaking and honest insight into the effectiveness of contactless fundraising. I hope that it will enable more charities to thrive in an increasingly cashless society, and to do so with confidence. I am very grateful to the IoF for their support in the creation of this work; a report which I believe will meaningfully contribute to shaping the future of giving.”Adam Bryan, Director of Partnerships and Innovation, Institute of Fundraising added: Advertisement Melanie May | 3 July 2019 | News 390 total views, 3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis28 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Charlotte city workers union urges passage of federal Medicare for All bill; workers across the South join the call
The following was jointly issued by Charlotte City Workers Union, United Electrical Workers (UE) Local 150; the Southern Workers Assembly; and National Nurses United.On Saturday, September 21, members of the Charlotte City Workers Union, Chapter of UE Local 150, the National Nurses United, the Southern Workers Assembly, Healthcare Justice NC and others held a picket in front of the Government Center to launch their campaign for affordable healthcare, including passage of the Congressional bill for Medicare for All. They were adding to the numbers of working people, including local and state employees, who see Medicare for All as the way to comprehensively insure themselves and families and to contain skyrocketing healthcare costs.The action called on the Charlotte City Council to pass a resolution to endorse the federal Medicare for All Act of 2019 (HR 1384) legislation now before Congress. Similar resolutions are being introduced by workers’ committees throughout the South. The City of Durham, Carrboro and Orange County, N.C., have already passed similar resolutions. City Council Member LaWana Mayfield, who supports the Medicare for All Act of 2019 (HR1384) attended the rally, and three other council members currently support it.Workers from several different unions from Georgia, Florida, Texas, South Carolina, West Virginia and North Carolina gathered over the weekend of September 21-22 in Charlotte, N.C., to continue training as part of the Southern Workers Assembly school to build worker cadre to organize their co-workers and build this campaign. “We are being gouged by insurance companies collecting enormous premiums. Under a Medicare for All system, an estimated $10 million will come back to Charlotte taxpayers and another $4 million back into the wallets and purses of city workers. Let’s join the rest of the industrial world and support a universal healthcare program which for us is Medicare for All,” stated Dominic Harris, utility technician in the Charlotte Water Department, president of the Charlotte City Workers Union.In Charlotte, savings to the city contribution to healthcare premiums under Medicare for All would add up to more than $10 million annually for the city. City employee premiums under Medicare for All would reduce employee costs by an estimated $3,734,000 per year. That’s a win-win for the city and for its workers.City union workers need immediate relief from high premiums they currently pay, citing the premium for basic family coverage of $434.50 per month. That amounts to about 20% of take home pay for workers starting out.Charlotte city workers are denied the right to bargain collectively with the City and cannot negotiate even incremental improvements in their health care coverage, making the protection of health for them and families all the more difficult.“As a hospital RN in one of the largest hospitals in Corpus Christi, Texas, we find patients arriving at our facility who are sicker and sicker. That’s because the insurance system does not fully insure them and they don’t get care when they need it. Enough is enough. We support the North Carolina workers’ efforts and will continue our efforts in Texas, Florida and other states. Let’s put in place a system that cares for all U.S. residents. That’s Medicare for All,” said Kathy Gossett, Registered Nurse, member of National Nurses United.Recent Commonwealth Fund data show that in successive years one in three U.S. residents with insurance foregoes a doctor visit or filling a prescription because they cannot afford them. Forty-two percent of U.S. residents with a first time cancer diagnosis spend all their savings within two years. Premiums continue to go up well beyond inflation. That’s underinsurance at expensive rates.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

To capture the essence of fall, the Proper’s own bartenders have whipped up a special cocktail menu that will help you appreciate the season more.Angel Meza, one of the Proper’s head bartenders, has whipped up a concoction, called ‘The Indian Summer,’ made up of Ford’s Gin, Old Forester Bourbon, Mathilde ‘Pear’ Liquor, Cinammon/Apple Puree, Fresh Lemon, and Local Honey for a cocktail to celebrate those fleeting warm days that surprise us every once in a while.John Peet, created a cocktail to honor the Kentucky town where his family used to gather to celebrate the change of seasons. The drink, called ‘Somerset, Ky.,’ is a mix of Benchmark Bourbon, Local Honey Syrup, ‘Scottish’ Pumpkin Puree, and House Aged Bitters.Bartender Kristin invented the perfect autumn tipple, concocting “Irish Spice” with Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey, Allspice Dram, Carpano Antica Sweet Vermouth, Cranberry Juice, and Orange Bitters for a drink that gives a nod to her Irish heritage. Her other goal when she fashioned the drink was to incorporate autumn flavors without making the drink too sweet.What sheâ€™s come up with captures the essence of Autumn beautifully in a libation that is balanced enough to be enjoyed all year round.Last, but definitely not least among the bartender-mixed drinks, is the ‘Switzer Bramble’ by Tobias. An elixir composed of Burnett’s Gin, Fresh Lemon, and Seasonal Berries topped with crushed ice, the drink is named after the famed Switzer hunting camp that once graced the foothills just North of the Proper. A fresh take on a class of drinks called ‘brambles,’ Tobias found inspiration for this drink through his own childhood memories of Autumn, picking wild berries in the forest.In addition to the Proper Bartender Originals, the restaurant’s Fall Cocktail Menu also features New Barrel-Aged Cocktails that include, among others, the Proper’s own ‘Barrel-Aged Vodka martini,’ ‘Barrel-Aged Greenpoint’ and ‘Red Hook.’Finally, the Proper is also introducing new and improved Gin and Tonics to match its flavors for fall, not just summer. These G+T’s include:PEAR + MINT(CapRock Colorado Organic)CUCUMBER + ROSE(Hendrickâ€™s)STRAWBERRY + ROSEMARY(Tanqueray Malacca)CHERRY TOMATO+ BASIL(Caorunn Small Batch)Of course, if you haven’t done so, you can also try out the Proper’s very own Flintridge Native Botanicals Gin, in-house made gin that aims to capture the flavors of the Foothills.To find out more about the new Fall Cocktail Menu, and to see the full list of new offerings, visit http://theproper.com or call (818) 790-4888.The Flintridge Proper is located at 464 Foothill Blvd., La CaÃ±ada Flintridge.

Florida, Michigan, Texas, Ohio, and California combined for approximately 186 thousand out of the nationwide total of 461 thousand completed foreclosures during the year-long period ending in April.Those five states combined for about 40 percent of the nation’s total of completed foreclosures for the 12 months. The number of 12-month completed foreclosures dropped by about 14 percent year-over-year in April, from 537 thousand down to about 461 thousand. Though Florida still led the nation in 12-month completed foreclosures in April, the number was down by about 40 percent year-over-year, from 106 thousand for the 12-month period ending in April 2015.Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have offered several possible solutions for borrowers who received modifications through the government’s Home Affordable Modification Program who are facing increased monthly payments when the interest rates on their modifications reset, according to the FHFA’s 2015 Annual Report to Congress released on Wednesday. Two of those solutions are a pay-for-performance incentive to reduce principal and eliminating the sunset on Streamlined Modification products. 2016-06-15 Brian Honea in Featured, Media, Webcasts Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.
