It’s even harder to be jolly after a year that promised the beginnings of great things, which never came.But hope is the mantra for the New Year, and optimistic predictions for 2011 should give us cheer. Developed economies are expected to grind towards growth as the emerging world propels us into calmer economic waters.Employment is expected to slowly pick up, and loose monetary policy in the West is set to thrust risky assets back on the table.Morgan Stanley calls this new reality a “tale of two worlds”: one where emerging markets see robust development, but also where growth faces a battering in Europe and the US. In this tale of two worlds, emerging market consumers are becoming our beacon of hope. The Asian and Latin American story is pulling western companies to tap into its cash rich consumer base, while the monetary stimulus from the US is finding its home in these economies. Also among the few morsels of hope for 2011 is that the US economy starts powering up. The great deleveraging is still on as personal savings start creeping back to levels not seen since the 1980s. The $858bn tax bill passed by Congress is expected to inject some fiscal clout into the economy. That’s hope we can take into the holiday season.But what of the hurricanes waiting to engulf us? Moody’s estimates that US tax cuts, along with unemployment benefits, will raise the ratio of US government debt to GDP to 73 per cent. That is one of the highest the country has seen in history, and could risk its credit rating. There are also storms of equal magnitude gaining strength in the housing and municipal debt markets.Then there is the financial tsunami already on the fringes of Europe, where bailouts are only buying time. Insolvency is beckoning some countries, and others risk sinking while saving the drowning. All that can hold back the flood waters is massive fiscal adjustment. Let’s also not forget the inflation that is waiting to take the global economy by storm.The biggest risk we run in next year’s tale of two worlds is to allow hope to blind us in the West to the risks of gambling on a return to former glory. This global shift needs to give us hope to dream of a new world, where there is growth for one and all.Maithreyi Seetharaman is a presenter on CNBC Europe each weekday morning on Squawk Box Europe and Capital Connectionhttp://europe.cnbc.com Show Comments ▼last_img read more

Could these cheap FTSE 100 stocks be the best UK shares to buy now?

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. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Enter Your Email Address “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Image source: Getty Images We all know that the coronavirus pandemic caused high street retailers in Britain to close their physical stores as the nation was placed under lockdown. Consequently, listed retailers in the FTSE 100 watched their share prices tumble over fears surrounding the future of the underlying businesses. However, with lockdown restrictions beginning to ease up and stores starting to reopen their doors, could FTSE 100 retailers be the best UK shares to buy ahead of a potentially swift economic recovery?British fashion retailers JD Sports (LSE: JD) and Next (LSE: NXT) have had a tough time over the past few months. Both saw their share prices fall by considerable amounts in the depths of the market crash, tumbling by 66% and 52% respectively. This comes as no surprise given the closure of all stores combined with worries over the long-term future of the high street.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…Thankfully, both firms have a strong online presence which, to a certain extent, has enabled sales to keep ticking over. That said, online sales alone were by no means enough to keep overall sales close to pre-pandemic levels.FTSE 100 starsSince the beginning of 2013, the JD Sports share price has skyrocketed by 1,785% to date. Prior to the sell-off, that figure was a staggering 2,482%! The sports fashion retailer’s growth is testament to its stellar business strategy and reputation. The company has firmly established its position in the market as the nation’s go-to trainer store. Additionally, in my view, the coronavirus won’t have affected JD’s business negatively long term. I think shoppers are likely to return, boosting the business in the process.And Next? A recent trading update released by the firm revealed the extent of the financial damage caused by Covid-19. Total full-price sales fell by 38%, with retail store sales down by 52% and online sales down by 32%. Yet despite a meaningful debt pile, the company maintains a relatively healthy balance sheet. This should ensure its ability to overcome weak sales in the short run. Thanks to the company’s importance as a major online retailer, Next should weather the storm comfortably in my view.The future of retailSo are they both buys, in my eyes? One of my concerns involves the extent to which consumer spending may be affected by the pandemic. It’s deemed unlikely that shoppers will make a quick return to the high street in pre-pandemic numbers — bad news for both retailers. That said, an article published in the Financial Times on Monday reported that: “Eager shoppers queued early outside some stores on London’s Oxford Street”, an anecdotal but nonetheless positive sign that consumers are still willing to spend.Nevertheless, Covid-19 undoubtedly posed an unprecedented challenge for retailers. With the sector already in a state of decline, there are legitimate fears that the pandemic could speed up the process. For this reason, I’d limit my investments to retailers with a strong online presence. For that reason, both companies satisfy my criteria and more. Both are market leaders with a powerful online presence.Ultimately, the depressed share prices of these FTSE 100 retailers may signal significant value. Provided the economy continues to make a swift recovery, there may never be a better time to buy shares in JD Sports and Next. With that in mind, I feel these FTSE 100 retailers may truly be among the best UK shares to buy now. Matthew Dumigan has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Six Nations England v France Preview

first_img Aaron Smith hails Antoine Dupont as world’s best… There is much anticipation about the 2021 edition of Le Crunch – here’s the lowdown England address poor discipline with help from Wayne Barnes LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Collapse Aaron Smith hails Antoine Dupont as world’s best Expand Luke Cowan-Dickie of England faces France (Getty Images) Expand Six Nations England v France PreviewThis game has all the right ingredients for some slightly wrong reasons.In the undersell of 2021, England defence coach John Mitchell said England “need to sort out our discipline” after stinging losses to Scotland and Wales in the first three rounds of the Six Nations. Through those matches, England have conceded an average of 13.6 penalties per game.As Mitchell continued: “It’s important that we’re a lot cleverer and smarter in certain situations.”Well, there are pop quizzes and then there is the Test of facing a France side who have done so much to stay on the straight and narrow in recent years, only to drive a car full of explosives into a clown shoe factory in the last fortnight. The damage was not irreprable – particularly as no senior management look likely to face anything resembling wrath after a Covid shocker tore through the French set-up – and the team who looked for all the world like the Grand Slam favourites mere weeks ago can still get there, but only if they can win all their remaining fixtures, including a rearranged match with Scotland (on an as yet unconfirmed date in March).Related: Fabien Galthie cleared of breaking Covid protocols by FFRWhat is undeniable on both sides is the quality of athlete available. Win this one and England have a monumental reset. For France, it will be proof that this group is the real deal and talk of pandemic howlers disappears like whispers in the wind. A loss for either looks horrid… Unless you are Wales, of course.Max Malins starts at full-back for England (Getty Images)No matter what has gone before – or in fact perhaps because of it – this match will have the world game’s eyes on it. And no one will blame you for getting caught up in it, either. If he storms the game, we will all join in the coronation of Antoine Dupont as the world’s best right now. Redemption will be the theme should Owen Farrell and Maro Itoje do the business.France have not won at Twickenham since 2005 and while le Crunch has so often been Rock v Rock in bygone years, there are some names on these team-sheets who can slice through.What’s the big team news?For the hosts, the name at full-back has generated optimism. Max Malins earns his first Test start for Eddie Jones, replacing Elliot Daly, and he is a player who throws every fibre of desire at it when he gets on the ball. The surprisingly-prolific Luke Cowan-Dickie starts ahead of Jamie George at hooker and Charlie Ewels is also in ahead Jonny Hill at lock.For France, there are four changes. Explosive centre Virimi Vakatawa has bounced back from injury to start, while Teddy Thomas replaces the injured Gabin Villière on the wing. Will he look secure under the high ball?In the pack, Romain Taofifenua comes in for the missing Bernard le Roux and Dylan Cretin start in the back row.Virimi Vakatawa is fit again (Getty Images)What have the coaches said?England boss Eddie Jones said: “We are of course disappointed that we can’t defend the championship, but that makes this an even more important game. We want to show what we are capable of.” France team manager Raphael Ibanez said: “The third match of the tournament is always a seesaw. It’s an even more special week because we have to make sure that the physical levels of our players are as consistent as possible. Some have been fortunate enough to play with their club, others have had to wait. Our goal with the group is to ensure that every player can be at an optimal level of form. Thanks to the matches already played, we now have undeniable experience of the standards necessary to come forward with the most energy possible.”MORE ON THE SIX NATIONScenter_img Jacob Whitehead gives his verdict on the 14… Can’t get to the shops?

No one with a 100% tackle success rate has made more tackles in this championship.According to Stuart Farmer, only Dan Carter surpassed the 1000-point mark quicker than Owen Farrell, who reached the number for England against Wales.What time does it kick off and is it on TV?England vs france, Saturday 13 March, Twickenham.The match kicks off at 4.45pm and will be shown on ITV in the UK and in Ireland on Virgin Media One. You can listen to coverage on BBC Radio 5 Live.Andrew Brace (Ireland) is the match referee, with Mike Adamson (Scotland) and Craig Evans (Wales) the assistants, and Joy Neville (Ireland) the Television Match Official.Andrew Brace was in charge for England-Scotland (Getty Images)What are the line-ups?England: Max Malins; Anthony Watson, Henry Slade, Owen Farrell (captain), Jonny May; George Ford, Ben Youngs; Mako Vunipola, Luke Cowan-Dickie, Kyle Sinckler, Maro Itoje, Charlie Ewels, Mark Wilson, Tom Curry, Billy Vunipola.Replacements: Jamie George, Ellis Genge, Will Stuart, Jonny Hill, Ben Earl, Dan Robson, Ollie Lawrence, Elliot Daly.France: Brice Dulin; Teddy Thomas, Virimi Vakatawa, Gael Fickou, Damian Penaud; Matthieu Jalibert, Antoine Dupont; Cyril Baille, Julien Marchand, Mohamed Haouas, Romain Taofifenua, Paul Willemse, Dylan Cretin, Charles Ollivon (captain), Gregory Alldritt.Replacements: Camille Chat, Jean-Baptiste Gros, Dorian Aldegheri, Cyril Cazeaux, Cameron Woki, Anthony Jelonch, Baptiste Serin, Romain Ntamack.

This project gave us time to think about spaces in a new light, with new use, especially for children. Save this picture!© Mickaël Martins AfonsoDirecting spaces. The main asset of the house was its light, and the double height volume in the living room, unexploited until then. As a result, a mezzanine net came to life in this space, allowing the outdoor light to come through, yet offering another way to take over this area. Save this picture!© Mickaël Martins AfonsoThe white floor on the ground floor, beyond its high reflective potential, brings out all the elements that are put down on it. The flooring shade also highlights an inversion of sensations with the shuttered concrete ceiling. This change upsets the habits to reinforce the notion of void at the center of the net. Save this picture!© Mickaël Martins AfonsoSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Mickaël Martins AfonsoThe integrated furnishings, mostly oak with some black spots, bring warm fragments to the place, as gold nuggets one ties oneself to and which structure the clear and infinite space. The goal was to reorganize these living spaces developed upon two floors, in order to create a general coherence in the project, while at the same time creating distinct areas dedicated to specific use. Save this picture!© Mickaël Martins AfonsoThe central area links both levels as a backbone. It is a huge sculpted wooden volume, in which several functions and usages are articulated: it is, on the one hand, the stairs that lead to the other floors, but also an access to the basement, the toilets, the bar, the library, the storage for vinyl records, and the television unit. The whole is materialized with games of solids and voids, punctuated by numerous spaces hidden by door curtains or small trap doors. Save this picture!© Mickaël Martins AfonsoHierarchy of spaces through matter. The mezzanine net becomes, depending on the time of day, a space for children to play, a place to relax in family, or a movie room. Bordering the net, along the wall, a wooden strip inhabits the residual space under the slope, offering a number of storages, and integrating a video projector and home cinema, concealed behind sliding doors once the showing is over. This strip continues on the next wall with a different shape, where the structure of the net is wrapped by wood and allows for a sequence of tiny trap doors, with some more storage spaces.   Save this picture!© Mickaël Martins AfonsoLike a theatrical production, the light falls onto the walls and the furniture, as such creating a warm atmosphere throughout the day, making these spaces pleasant and appeasing. The result is a true call for relaxation in this area, where everybody finds their own space without cluttering the available space.Save this picture!© Mickaël Martins AfonsoProject gallerySee allShow less”Bodies of Water”: PSA Announces the Theme for the 13th Shanghai BiennaleArticlesA Rare View of Siberia’s Soviet ArchitectureArticles Share Photographs Mickaël Martins Afonso & Elodie Gaschard Architects: MARTINS AFONSO atelier de design, l’atelier miel Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officel’atelier mielOfficeFollowMARTINS AFONSO atelier de designOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn InstagramOn FacebookCourdimancheFrancePublished on June 05, 2020Cite: “Around the Net House / MARTINS AFONSO atelier de design + l’atelier miel” 05 Jun 2020.

The charity was the first in the UK to launch an advanced fundraising application on the social network.The charity said that the new version of the “app” is designed to build brand engagement and drive actions, while enhancing a community around the common interest of preventing cruelty to children. Most recently it has been extended to incorporate the Be the FULL STOP campaign through the addition of ‘NSPCC Deeds’. Making use of Facebook’s viral infrastructure, users can now commit to perform a deed and challenge their friends to do the same deed or others.This week users were also able to engage in ‘conversations’ about deeds, events or anything else through a new Wall tab. Social aspects such as voting, feedback and comments functions are also being employed to engage users further. The application also supports video content to further develop its calls to action. Advertisement Howard Lake | 15 November 2007 | Newscenter_img As of 12 November, 11,588 users had installed the application, and £2,765 haf been donated since launch in September.

Call for release of journalists held in eastern Ukraine

first_img Organisation to go further UkraineEurope – Central Asia News News March 26, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Ukraine escalates “information war” by banning three pro-Kremlin media September 7, 2020 Find out more Follow the news on Ukraine February 26, 2021 Find out more Ukrainian media group harassed by broadcasting authority Receive email alerts (Photo : AFP) Update : The US journalist Simon Ostrovsky was released on the evening of 24 April.———Reporters Without Borders is very concerned about the fate of three news providers who are detained or missing in eastern Ukraine, part of which is becoming increasingly lawless as a result of an insurrection against the central government. The self-proclaimed “People’s Republic of Donetsk” so far only controls the city of Sloviansk and administrative buildings in other cities but is trying to extend its authority.Ukrainian photo-reporter Yevgen Gapych was last seen in Artemivsk on the evening of 22 April, while US journalist Simon Ostrovsky and Ukrainian netizen Artem Deynega – arrested on 22 and 13 April respectively – are still held in Sloviansk.“We call on the forces controlling Sloviansk to immediately provide evidence that these journalists are still alive, and to quickly end their arbitrary detention,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire. “And those holding Yevgen Gapych should say so without delay.“These latest abductions have taken attacks on journalists to a new, intolerable level. Not only is their safety at stake but also the intimidatory signal being sent to all news providers is unacceptable. The leaders of the ‘People’s Republic of Donetsk’ must urgently stop this escalation. We reiterate our call to all parties to the conflict to stop taking journalists hostage, to respect their neutrality and to guarantee their protection.”Gapych spoke by telephone with his family for the last time on 22 April from Horlivka, where he was sent by Reporter, a newspaper based in the western city of Ivano-Frankivsk. He was also carrying letters from several other news media stating that he was on assignment for them.After being seen in the evening in Artemivsk, a town mid-way between Horlivka and Sloviansk, he stopped responding to calls, as did his brother, who was accompanying him. The SBU (the Ukrainian security agency) later told his wife he was being held by pro-Russian militiamen in Sloviansk. Reporters Without Borders has not been able to confirm this.Ostrovsky, who reports for VICE News, was arrested in Sloviansk earlier on 22 April. Representatives of the local self-proclaimed authorities said he was being treated well although there was confusion about the reason for his detention. Their spokesperson, Stella Khorosheva, said he was suspected of being a spy for Right Sector, the Ukrainian ultranationalist group.But Sloviansk’s self-proclaimed mayor, Vyacheslav Ponomarev, accused Ostrovsky of “provocative comments” and “harmful activities” while openly saying he could be used as a bargaining chip. Ponomarev also said he was troubled by the fact that Ostrovsky has dual US and Israeli citizenship. VICE News and the US State Department said they were working to get him freed as soon as possible.Reporters Without Borders only recently learned that pro-Russian militiamen abducted Deynega, a Sloviansk-based information technology expert, on 13 April. He had installed a camera on his balcony and used it to broadcast the storming of the local SBU headquarters on YouTube. The self-proclaimed local authorities said on 21 April that Deynega was in good health and that they would release him soon, but offered no further details and have not given evidence to support their claim that he is all right.Sergei Lefter, a member of an observation mission sent by the NGO Open Dialogue Foundation, was also kidnapped in Sloviansk on 16 April. Since then, there has been no news of Lefter, who is a journalist by profession.Ponomarev said on 22 April that these men would be released if it was established that they were not spies. But in an interview for the Gazeta.ru news website the next day, he said that this “hostage taking” was a response to the detention of “comrades” by the central government.The situation of journalists in Sloviansk worsened after a shootout at the entrance to the city on the evening of 20 April. Italian journalists Paul Gogo and Cossimo Attanacio and Belarusian journalist Dmitri Galko were arrested together the next day but were released a few hours later after their equipment, documents and money had been seized.

Murdered journalist’s family gets compensation

first_imgNews Organisation Pakistani TV anchor censored after denouncing violence against journalists “In the light of this cold-blooded assassination of a journalist, we cannot fail to be concerned about the conception certain political party supporters have of what constitutes freedom of expression” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard in a letter to federal interior minister Moin-ud-din Haider. “This crime must be solved urgently or those responsible may escape punishment.”Soomro, who worked for the Sindi-language daily Kawish, was called out of his house by the killers, said Ahmed Raza, correspondent of the Daily Times in Hyderabad. When he emerged, they tried to kidnap him, but he resisted and they shot him before fleeing in a car. He died of serious stomach wounds on his way to hospital.It is thought articles he wrote during the election campaign may have triggered his death. Police have arrested Mohammad Ali Bijarani and are seeking four other suspects, including Bijarani’s brother Wahid and another man, Mohammad Bajkani.The Bijarani brothers belong to a family of influential local politicians. Another brother, Mir Mehboob, was recently elected to the provincial assembly for Kandhkot, and an uncle, Mir Hazzar Khan Bijarani, is a former federal minister and has been elected as a member of the national assembly on the Pakistan Peoples Party Parliamentarians ticket. Soomro, who was 26 and had a wife and two children, had written articles about Mir Mehboob. RSF_en PakistanAsia – Pacific News to go further News The presumed killers, Wahid and Mohammed Ali, appeared before the jirga, in Kandhot, in the southeastern province of Baluchistan, after being cited by the brother of Soomro, who was murdered last October.

The assembly was chaired by a senior member of the Sundrani tribe, Sardar Sunder Khan Sundrani, assisted by former member of parliament Illahi Bux Soomro, local journalists and other local figures.
