Victims to have more power over police

first_img HOME secretary Theresa May will tell police to take anti-social behaviour more seriously or face official sanctions.She says the coalition will give victims and communities the right to force the authorities to take action. She will also urge officers to treat offences like vandalism and intimidation as crimes rather than lower-level anti-social behaviour.Speaking at the Conservative Party Conference in Birmingham yesterday she said: “Too often we hear stories of victims who are passed from pillar to post.“We hear about victims who call the police on dozens of occasions but aren’t taken seriously and in many cases are ignored altogether. “So as part of our reforms to anti-social behaviour powers, we will give victims and communities the right to force the authorities to take action where they fail to do so.” Tags: NULL KCS-content whatsapp Read This Next’Kevin Can F**k Himself’: Here’s Why Only Allison and Patty Are SeenThe Wrap20 Stars Who’ve Posted Nude Selfies, From Lizzo to John Legend (Photos)The Wrap’Batwoman’: Wallis Day on Circe’s ‘Deranged’ Warpath and the Key to SavingThe Wrap’Godzilla vs Kong’ Reaches $100 Million in US After Grossing $250,000 inThe WrapJoin a Conversation on ‘Cancel Culture in Comedy’ with Maz Jobrani, SkyeThe WrapAnya Taylor-Joy, Ralph Fiennes Join Searchlight’s Dark Comedy ‘The Menu’The WrapAfter ‘Black Widow,’ Kevin Feige Leaves Open the Possibility of OtherThe Wrap’Pose’ Creator Steven Canals on Life After His Groundbreaking Show: ‘I’mThe Wrap’The Boys’ Star Aya Cash Took Inspiration From YouTube, TikTok and SteveThe Wrap 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 PastMoneyPailShe Was The Dream Girl In The 90s, This Is Her NowMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

HSBC shares: Here’s what I think is next for the dividend

first_img Enter Your Email Address Jay Yao has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended HSBC Holdings. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares See all posts by Jay Yao “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” HSBC (LSE:HSBA) suspended its dividend earlier in the year due to pressure from the Prudential Regulation Authority. The regulator was concerned about liquidity during the Covid-19 crisis. Now that Britain has approved a Covid-19 vaccine, however, there is hope that the bank will start paying a dividend again. Given the expected return of dividends, here’s what I think management will do with the bank’s payout in the next few years. 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…HSBC shares: Dividend expected to returnIn terms of its dividend, there are a few reasons for expecting HSBC shares to pay one beginning either this year or next. To begin with, regulators have recently given their okay for banks like HSBC to pay dividends again. HSBC is also in a strong enough position to do so. It’s both profitable and adequately capitalised. For the third quarter, for example, the bank reported a better than expected profit before tax of $3.07bn. The company also reported a core tier 1 ratio of 15.6%, a number higher than management’s target of 14% to 14.5%. Given the Covid-19 vaccines news, many expect the world economy to improve next year. That economic recovery could help the bank’s profits as well. It’s also management’s intention to begin paying a dividend. Management said in late October, “We are working hard to get back to being able to pay dividends and we seek to pay a conservative dividend if circumstances allow with respect to the 2020 financial year”.Analyst estimates and the futureIn terms of what might be next for the dividend, I believe it’s going to be a process. I think management will err on the side of caution initially and not pay as much as they could. If HSBC shares pays a dividend this year, the dividend will likely be conservative. Goldman Sachs estimates it could be $0.15 per share for the second half, if there is one at all. The average analyst estimate of the bank’s annual dividend for next year is 27 cents per share. After 2021, if economic conditions improve, outlook brightens, and management executes, I believe the dividend could rebound closer to where it was prior to the pandemic. From 2015 to 2018, HSBC paid the same annual dividend of $0.51 per share. However, I think that process could take several years. It could take a while for interest rates and the world economy to normalise.Is the stock a buy?Although HSBC’s dividend might not fully rebound for quite some time, I reckon there are still plenty of ways for management to generate value. Management could use earnings to help with the company’s restructuring efforts. They could also use the excess earnings to finance mergers and acquisitions. If management executes well, I reckon sentiment around the stock could improve. Given that HSBC shares trade for a price-to-book value ratio of around 0.57, I think the stock is cheap. With the bank’s many advantages, I’d buy and hold HSBC shares.

2 cheap UK dividend shares I’d buy for my Stocks and Shares ISA

first_img2 cheap UK dividend shares I’d buy for my Stocks and Shares ISA Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Okay, the economic outlook might be as clear as mud. And as a consequence, UK share investors need to be very careful before taking the plunge. But in my opinion there are plenty of top stocks that should still thrive in this environment.Here are two I’d happily buy for my Stocks and Shares ISA today: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…Gold starI like the look of gold producer Centamin (LSE: CEY) a lot. Fears over the state of the economic recovery are rumbling on as the Covid-19 pandemic continues. Inflationary concerns are also spiralling as central banks maintain loose monetary policy and, along with governments, continue their aggressive stimulus programmes. I believe all this creates a perfect storm for gold prices to move higher again.As is the case with all UK shares, there are risks to consider before buying Centamin. A sudden improvement in the global economy could cause demand for safe-haven assets to fall considerably. There’s also rising speculation that Bitcoin could surpass gold as the world’s foremost flight-to-safety asset. This might have considerable long-term demand implications for Centamin’s product.That said, I still think the precious metals digger remains an attractive buy today. Sudden operational problems at Centamin and falling gold prices could put current earnings forecasts in danger. But City analysts reckon earnings here will rise 15% in 2021. This results in a low forward price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of 0.9. Conventional thinking suggests shares trading under a reading of 1 might be undervalued. Of course, forecasts can change based on future developments, so that PEG can change, too.On top of this, Centamin also carries a 5.8% dividend yield for 2021. It’s a reading that outstrips the current 3.5% average of UK shares overall.A UK share I already ownI’m also a big fan of Games Workshop Group (LSE: GAW) today. In fact, I’m so enamoured that I’ve added this particular UK share to my own Stocks and Shares ISA in recent months.Fantasy wargaming giant Games Workshop has a number of tricks up its sleeve. Its position at the top table of a niche entertainment form allows it to keep raking in sales during economic upturns and downturns. News that the company generated more profit in the six months to November than it had during the entire previous fiscal year provides evidence of this. Not even a global pandemic and a sharp economic crash could derail its immense popularity.I’m also encouraged by the steps the company has made to expand its geographical footprint. Overseas demand for its gaming products is soaring and it now generates almost three-quarters of sales from foreign customers. There is a threat to Games Workshop’s operations, however: despite copyright issues, 3D printing of the company’s premium miniatures among the gaming community is on the rise.As with Centamin, there’s always a danger that City estimates can be blown off course. But today, forecasts suggest Games Workshop’s earnings will rise 58% this fiscal year. This leaves the company trading on a forward PEG multiple of 0.6. In my opinion a handy 2% dividend yield sweetens the investment case. Image source: Getty Images Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Photo: Lynette Wilson/ENS[Episcopal News Service – Nairobi, Kenya] Eight #ShareTheJourney pilgrims arrived in Nairobi March 3 for an 11-day pilgrimage to Kenya and Rwanda to learn about the plight of Congolese refugees and the process they go through to gain resettlement in the United States.“What I hope the result of this trip will be is an increased understanding of what a unique and special program Episcopal Migration Ministries is in The Episcopal Church, and that more Episcopalians can see a place for themselves in this life-saving ministry,” said Deborah Stein, director of Episcopal Migration Ministries, the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society’s refugee resettlement service that is leading the pilgrimage.(The Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society is the legal and canonical name under which The Episcopal Church is incorporated, conducts business, and carries out mission.)In addition to meeting with nongovernmental organizations, including the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and Church World Service’s Africa Resettlement Support Center, the pilgrims will travel to Rwanda to visit the Kigali Genocide Memorial Centre and the Gihembe Refugee Camp.The pilgrimage is part of Episcopal Migration Ministries yearlong, 75th anniversary #ShareTheJourney campaign to raise awareness of the ways the Missionary Society works to facilitate refugee resettlement throughout The Episcopal Church.“I think Episcopal Migration Ministries is one of the most inspiring and least well-known ministries in The Episcopal Church,” said the Rev. Scott Gunn, one of the pilgrims and executive director of Forward Movement, a Cincinnati, Ohio-based ministry of The Episcopal Church that encourages discipleship. “I’m eager to see transformation in my own life as I experience this pilgrimage, and I want to do whatever I can to share this journey with other people.”Through Episcopal Migration Ministries, the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society partners with 30 resettlement affiliates in 26 dioceses nationwide. It is one of nine agencies working in partnership with the U.S. Department of State to welcome and resettle refugees to the United States.In 2014, the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society worked with partners to resettle 5,155 of the tens of thousands of refugees who came to the United States through UNHCR’s screening process.Over the next several years, UNHCR plans to resettle 50,000 refugees from the Congo, with 70 to 90 percent to be resettled to the United States.Since 1998, more than 5.5 million people have died in the Congo from fighting, disease and malnutrition in what is regarded as the deadliest conflict since World War II. About 2.5 million people have been internally displaced, and some 500,000 have fled the country’s protracted conflict, with the vast majority living in refugee camps in the Great Lakes and Horn of Africa regions.“There’s no other durable solution for this group of refugees, who’ve been waiting for over a decade in refugee camps without hope of a future,” said Stein. “Some have been resettled or have found a way to stay in the country of asylum, but the rest are languishing away in camps. Resettlement is the only option for them.”A refugee is someone who has fled his or her country of nationality because of a “well-founded fear of persecution” based on race, religion, ethnicity, or political or social affiliation.There are 15.5 million refugees worldwide, according to the UNHCR, whose mandate is to provide international protection for refugees. The agency’s primary focus is on repatriation, or safe return home, followed by citizenship or legal residency in the host country. The third option is resettlement to one of the 22 countries worldwide that accepts refugees. One percent receives third-country resettlement, with half of that 1 percent destined for the United States.The resettlement process typically takes years; refugees can spend decades living in camps before their cases are heard and adjudicated. Kenya is one of two countries – the other being Ethiopia – that hosts the largest number of refugees living in camps in Africa.“One of the effects of resettlement is that it’s a show of support for countries hosting refugees; it gives breathing space to host countries to continue to keep their borders open to future refugees and asylum seekers,” said Stein. “The Congolese refugees are just one of many groups awaiting a similar durable solution.”The #ShareTheJourney pilgrimage is funded through a Constable Fund grant awarded in 2014 by The Episcopal Church Executive Council. The Constable Fund provides grants to fund mission initiatives that were not provided for within the budget of The Episcopal Church passed by the General Convention.Follow the pilgrims at #ShareTheJourney on Twitter (@EMMRefugees); Facebook here; the blog here; or through the media hub here.– Lynette Wilson is an Episcopal News Service editor and reporter.

In recent years, the City of Vancouver introduced housing policies to address current and future needs for housing affordability and choice in the ever-evolving urban environment. The new policies allow strategically located sites to be rezoned to permit greater height and density in exchange for developers committing to provide and operate rental housing for a period of 60 years or for the life of the building. The Duke responds to these challenges with a new rental building typology inspired by precedents from the UK. The Duke is a 14-storey mixed-use development with 12-storeys of residential rental accommodation located above a two-storey commercial podium. The unit mix comprises 25% two-bedroom family units with one-bedroom and studio units making up the balance.Save this picture!© Michael ElkanTo achieve economic viability as a rental development, the project had to achieve a relatively high density within a 14-storey height limit imposed by the City. Use of a typical double-loaded corridor form of development set back from the lot lines could not realize the density required for economic viability. To achieve the required density, the living units are pushed out to the lot lines, thereby accommodating a greater number of units on the site. Positioning the units at the perimeter of the site created a figure/ground plan configuration with a void at the centre that was developed as a soaring open-air circulation space to access the units. A high-tensile steel and Teflon membrane structure is suspended above the open-air atrium to protect the space from the elements, with portions extending past the void to shelter portions of the extensive rooftop communal terrace.Save this picture!© Michael ElkanSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Michael ElkanThe trapezoidal shape of the site creates a dynamic spatial quality to the atrium that is further enhanced through the play of multi-coloured entrance doors against a backdrop of white finish surfaces. A narrow, vertical south-facing slot provides glimpses into and out of the atrium space; while an 18-metre high, pink-coloured hanging art installation washes shafts of coloured light into the brilliant white atrium. Three communal outdoor landscaped terraces span the sunlit slot to stimulate impromptu social interactions between residents. Two amenity rooms are located on the uppermost floors with direct stair access to the rooftop terrace amenities that includes a children’s play zone, urban agriculture, a dog-friendly space, and social seating with a barbeque area.Save this picture!© Michael ElkanThe rental units are oriented outward, with a staggered elevational treatment that reflects the shifting nature of the traffic pattern passing by on the adjacent arterial thoroughfare. The building has a robust character and quality that features masonry cladding with steel and glass finishes. Studio units have shallow ‘Juliet’ balconies, while larger family units feature larger projecting balconies.  The overwhelmingly positive response from residents suggest that The Duke may have set an important precedent – one likely to be followed by many future developments in Vancouver.Save this picture!© Michael ElkanProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Ultimate List of Sites Declared World Heritage in MexicoArticlesArchitecture and Education: 15 Schools Designed by Brazilian ArchitectsMiscProject locationAddress:333 E 11th Ave, Vancouver, BC V5T 3J5, CanadaLocation to be used only as a reference.

The Petitioner, Advocate Puneet Kaur Dhanda has approached the Top Court stating that Saliyan’s death in June, 2020, followed by Rajput’s alleged suicide a week later, “creates suspicion”. “Both died in suspicion circumstances and at the peak of their successful professional career and as per the statements of witnesses they both were upset as some projects of them were sabotaged,” the plea states. The Petitioner has also raised questions about the suspicious circumstances under which Saliyan’s case file came to be “deleted by accident” by the Mumbai Police. It is alleged that when the Bihar Police reached out to the Mumbai Police to seek details about Saliyan’s death, so as to investigate any links between the two deaths, the Mumbai Police told the Bihar Police that the description of Disha’s case has been ‘deleted by accident’ and cannot be retrieved. It is further the case of the Petitioner that denial of access to laptop to the Bihar Police so as to retrieve the data raises more suspicion and the matter requires immediate attention. She has pleaded the Court to direct the Mumbai Police to place on record the Detailed Investigation Report of Ms. Saliyan’s case. He has also prayed for a CBI probe into both the deaths. “The petitioner wants a Fair trial in their murder case without the interference of politicians. Because for investigation of serious, sensational and organized crime under the Indian Penal Code and other laws on the requests of State Governments or on the orders of the Supreme Court and High Courts CBI Inquiry can be conducted,” the plea states. She has also sought that the Bihar Police be allowed to operate and continue investigation in Mumbai, without any interference from the local Police. The Petitioner is represented by Advocate Dr. Sushil Balwada. Notably, investigation in Rajput’s case has already been transferred to the CBI. Next Storylast_img read more
