BROWN LAMBASTS CITY

first_img Share GORDON Brown has said a new “alien” culture in the City lead to excessive speculation and bonus payments that left banks undercapitalised when the financial crash hit. In his new book, Brown said if bankers had paid themselves 10 per cent less between 2000 and 2007 they would have had £50bn more capital. He said he was misled over RBS’s strength and that former boss Fred Goodwin, who he had once admired, changed over the years. whatsapp whatsapp Read This NextFresh Fruit Sushi: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofCreamy Pumpkin Soup: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily Proof’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofA Once in 17 Years Cicada Event in Princeton, New JerseyFamily Proof Tuesday 7 December 2010 8:31 pm Show Comments ▼center_img 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 TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen HeraldAlphaCute30 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.

Forget the State Pension or a Cash ISA! I’d live off these 10% dividend yields for my retirement

Andy Ross | Wednesday, 6th May, 2020 | More on: RIO SLA Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! In a time of dividend cuts, I think these shares, with their 10% dividend yields, could provide vital income for those looking to fund retirement. Keeping the dividend and a 10% yieldThere can be no doubt it’s been a tricky few years for FTSE 100 asset manager Standard Life Aberdeen (LSE: SLA). In 2018, the business was loss-making before leaping back into profit last year. Shareholders have been on a rollercoaster ride, which you might not expect from a mature business in a high-margin, stable industry.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…So this isn’t the easiest share to live with. But would you expect it to be when it yields 10%? I’d argue not. The high yield is a sign that many investors are nervous about the business. Yet I’m optimistic.The dividend has been held flat in the last year and is covered by earnings. It looks like management is keen not to cut it. So as long as the business doesn’t worsen from here, then investors should get income.There’s the potential for future growth if the business recovers. But I think the main attraction is the dividend.There are some glimmers of hope that this is happening. In 2019, gross inflows rose, as did earnings per share. The group is also keen to cut costs, which should drive value for shareholders in the long term.Demand from China to keep dividends flowing Shares in miner Rio Tinto (LSE: RIO) look very cheap. They also offer a 10% dividend yield when special dividends are included. I expect the firm will be able to keep providing this high level of income for investors as long as there’s not a deep and prolonged recession following the Covid-19 outbreak.The shares trade on a P/E of less than seven. Indicating that they can be picked up on a low multiple of earnings, which is good for investors.Rio Tinto has experience of coming through difficult times, like when prices collapsed in 2015/16 when demand from key growth markets like China dried up. This led to a deep round of cost-cutting, which is likely to be of benefit to the business today.With the Chinese economy now opening up again, and with lost ground to make up after factories shut down, iron ore demand could shoot up. As Rio’s main product, that could deliver a massive boost for the miner.Before the shutdown, revenues from iron ore were soaring, driven by demand from China. This is why I’m confident in the outlook for the company.Of course Rio is sensitive to commodity prices. But its strict control of costs and world-class mining assets give it better protection against fluctuating prices and the impact of coronavirus.I think the income should be secure. Even if cut, it’s likely to remain at a high level of yield, which would also grow back over the coming years. I’d be inclined to invest now in order to generate income for retirement.

Limerick grandmother conquers Kilimanjaro

first_img Previous articleAirlines reinstate Shannon-New York ServiceNext articleAbout the Limerick Post Newspaper admin WhatsApp Advertisement Print Twitter Linkedincenter_img A RAHEEN grandmother has achieved a tremendous feat by climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa. Norrie Sherlock, from the Father Russell Road, mother of two and grandmother of two,  wanted a challenge, and made the decision to climb the mountain in aid of The National Children’s Hospital in Tallaght this March, managing to raise almost €6,000 for the charity.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Preparation for the monumental challenge included hill walking with the Limerick climbing club, before heading out on her adventure on March 19.“A friend was supposed to go with me but pulled out, so I was on my own heading over”, Norrie told the Limerick Post.“But I met up with 26  others who were taking part in the walk, that was organised by www.actionchallenge.com, in Heathrow. From Heathrow to Nairobi and then on to Kilimanjaro airport, I got to know some of the group. On arrival we met up with a further 12 who had taken a different route”.Norrie explained that the group met with their guides and porters at the gate to the National Park and began the first leg of the journey to reach the summit of Africa’s highest free-standing mountain.“We trekked for eight hours through lush rainforest on Sunday to sleep under the canvas in the Machame camp at 2980 metres.“Porters working in the national park are incredible people carrying everything from tents to cooking equipment on their heads”.The next two days the group also spent walking for eight or nine hours.“We were always trying to acclimatise. Some people got bad headaches, but I’m not sure they were from the malaria tablets, the Diamox tablets to treat altitude sickness, or the altitude itself”.Wednesday was the crunch day for the group, who faced the last stretch to the summit.“Our first task was to scale the famous Barranco Wall, a sheer wall with narrow paths that zig zag to the top. Locals call it breakfast”.After a rest and dinner the group took off again at 11pm in order to reach the summit at daybreak.“We had snow from the base of the mountain and a snow blizzard which made it very very cold, around -21C.“Around 6am, I got to Stella Point, and the views were unbelievable. Another hour got me to The Roof of Africa and the famous sign Uhuru Peak 5895 m. It was one of the most fantastic feelings reaching the top”.Of Norrie’s group of 36, 26 reached the summit, two got frostbite and eight got altitude sickness.“This has been one of the most physically, mentally and emotionally demanding things I have ever done but I am so happy to have achieved it. I couldn’t have done it without my porter Byson, or my husband, Tom, who texted words of encouragement every day”.After taking a rest for the rest of the year, Norrie is planning a new adventure in the near future.Our picture shows Norrie Sherlock and her porter Byson at The Roof of Africa Facebook NewsLocal NewsLimerick grandmother conquers KilimanjaroBy admin – May 6, 2010 554 Emaillast_img read more

Northrop Grumman builds very lightweight torpedo for US Navy

first_img navaltoday May 22, 2020, by View post tag: US Navy View post tag: Northrop Grumman Back to overview,Home naval-today Northrop Grumman builds, tests very lightweight torpedo for US Navy Northrop Grumman builds, tests very lightweight torpedo for US Navycenter_img Northrop Grumman has successfully manufactured and tested the first industry-built very lightweight torpedo (VLWT) for the US Navy.The prototype torpedo is based on the Pennsylvania State University Applied Research Laboratory’s (PSU-ARL) design that was distributed to defense industrial manufacturers in 2016.Northrop Grumman, which independently funded the research and development, will offer the design-for-affordability improvements to this VLWT as the company’s response for the navy’s Compact Rapid Attack Weapon (CRAW) program.As explained, Northrop Grumman improved upon the VLWT baseline design to replace high-cost components and drive overall affordability, reproducibility and reliability. Those altered sections were built and tested using PSU-ARL’s own test equipment for confidence.“The successful testing of the torpedo nose on the first try is a testament to Northrop Grumman’s design-for-affordability approach, which will significantly reduce cost without sacrificing operational performance,” David Portner, lead torpedo program manager, undersea systems, Northrop Grumman, said.Northrop Grumman assembled the prototype VLWT using a Stored Chemical Energy Propulsion System (SCEPS) manufactured by Barber-Nichols, Inc., (BNI) of Denver, Colorado.“The nation needs advanced undersea warfare capabilities now more than ever,” Alan Lytle, vice president, undersea systems, Northrop Grumman, pointed out. “We are ready to support fielding the VLWT which will increase subsea lethality and enable innovative concepts of operations for multiple warfighting platforms.” Northrop Grumman’s manufacturing plan would span the country by building components in California, Utah, Minnesota, Colorado, West Virginia and Maryland.

Press release: PM reveals package of measures to promote a more peaceful, prosperous and democratic Western Balkans

first_imgThe new package, which demonstrates the government’s enduring commitment to the region, includes: Prime Minister Theresa May today announces a package of measures to help the Western Balkans prosper by improving the collective security and economic stability of the region.The Prime Minister will welcome the six Western Balkan leaders to London today, alongside other European figures such as German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, and the Polish Prime Minister, Mateusz Morawiecki, for the 5th annual Western Balkans Summit under the Berlin Process.The Berlin Process, established in 2014, has already achieved a great deal in the region – advancing the economic integration, building energy and transport links, and forging connections between civil society and young people.The package announced today will complement this progress, helping build a more peaceful, prosperous and democratic Western Balkans.It will help the region to address complex security challenges, particularly around serious and organised crime and drug smuggling, which in turn will help prevent illicit activity on the streets in the UK.Organised Crime Groups from the Western Balkans have a significant nationwide presence in the UK. UK cooperation with the region and European partners has previously delivered positive results, including bringing down a crime network which was estimated to have imported an average of more than 8,000kg of cocaine a year into the UK, with an estimated street value of £800m.Encouraged by these results and recognising the importance of the Western Balkans, the Prime Minister wants to go further to strengthen the security and economic integrity of the region.Prime Minister, Theresa May said: I am proud to host this year’s Western Balkans Summit, bringing together leaders from across the region with European partners to look at how we can ensure the economic stability and collective security of the Western Balkans. For history shows that a stable and secure Western Balkans region means a more stable and secure Europe. We are leaving the EU next March, but we remain fully committed to improving the prosperity and security of the Western Balkans, and Europe, both now and in the years to come. The package that I have announced today will help the Western Balkans tackle threats to their progress, such as serious and organised crime, drug trafficking and terrorism, while also having a positive effect in the UK by cutting off criminal activity at the source and helping prevent crime from reaching British streets.center_img increasing UK funding to the region by over 95% from £41 million in 18/19 to £80 million in 20/21 from the Conflict, Security and Stability Fund doubling the number of UK staff working in the region on the security issues affecting the UK and the Western Balkans. These experts will help stop crime reaching UK streets and also help strengthen the region’s own response to serious and organised crime, terrorism and violent extremism, corruption and money laundering launching the Balkans Organised Crime Observatory, jointly with the Austrian and Norwegian governments which will enable civil society to play a more effective role in tackling organised crime and corruption. Led by the Global Initiative Against Transnational Organised Crime, this will serve as a virtual network for key civil society actors to work together to monitor, report on and expose Serious and Organised Crime and corruption, share research and good practice and improve strategic and operational coordination improving the region’s cyber capability through a £1m investment in training and advisory activities. This includes direct support to Computer Emergency Response Teams in Serbia and Montenegro, launching a Security Fellowships course on cyber security, and providing strategic support to Governments across the region, and establishing a UK-Western Balkans Security Discourse on Cyber Security to enhance UK bilateral and regional relationships and information sharing among senior cyber officials agreeing a Joint Declaration on the Principles of Information-Exchange in the Field of Law Enforcement that will help law enforcement agencies in the region share information more easily in the fight against serious and organised crime and terrorism. Countries will also commit to concrete actions to tackle corruption chairing a senior-level Security Commitments Steering Group to push for better exchange of information and best practice, including through establishing regional forums, the first of which for customs officers. These will meet regularly at senior and operational level to discuss strategic approaches and complex transnational financial criminal investigation extending the Pan Balkans Strategic Reserve Force (SRF) for another year which is held at readiness in the UK to move into the Western Balkans if the security situation deteriorates or the UK needs to support stability in the region. The current UK commitment to maintain the SRF ends on 31st December. We are extending this for another year as a demonstration of our commitment to maintain security and stability in the Western Balkans committing £10 million to help build digital skills and employment prospects for young people in the Western Balkans. The British Council will provide training to children in over 4,500 schools, to bolster digital literacy and core skills across the region. By providing access to a digital education, this funding will help foster the next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs providing an additional £1million to help the region address difficult legacy issues, including supporting the organisations working to find and identify the 12,000 victims still missing from the conflicts of the 1990slast_img read more

Watch Umphrey’s McGee’s Emotional Take On Prince’s ‘When Doves Cry’ [Pro-Shot]

first_imgToday marks a sad chapter in music history, as the beloved R&B singer Prince passed away earlier today. As we continue to grieve over the loss of a legend, we turn to the healing power of music and explore a number of tributes performed by artists we love.Of all the bands in the jam scene, no group does covers quite like Umphrey’s McGee. The rock band always pushes the envelope forward, in both their original music, improvisation, and of course, their selection for covers. It’s not easy to cover Prince, as his vocal and compositional styles are truly unique, but UM mastered the powerful Purple performer’s song “When Doves Cry” back in 2015, at First Avenue in Minneapolis, MN (the site of the Purple Rain film).Watch the band’s pro-shot “When Doves Cry,” below:Umphrey’s McGee is a band of many tricks. Known for more than just their original songs, the rock band has a reputation of bringing some interesting mash-ups to the table. On Halloween of 2013, Umphrey’s delivered a Prince x Blue Öyster Cult mash-up, combining the eternal sounds of “When Doves Cry” and “Don’t Fear The Reaper” with their original song, “Pay The Snucka.” Dubbed, “Don’t Fear The Doves, Snucka,” here’s how it all went down:RIP Prince. We’ll miss you.last_img read more
