Tags: NULL LONDON insurers were facing the prospect of further large losses yesterday after a 6.3 magnitude earthquake devastated New Zealand’s largest south island city Christchurch.The quake, the country’s worst natural disaster in 80 years, struck the busy business district at lunchtime leaving hundreds trapped by fallen buildings and at least 75 dead.Sources close to Lloyd’s insurers told City A.M. insured losses were likely to start at $5.5–6bn (£3.4-3.7bn), the level incurred from a 7.0 magnitude quake that flattened parts of Christchurch last September. But they said yesterday’s loss of life and damage to commercial city centre buildings means losses to UK insurers, particularly in the Lloyd’s market, are likely to be far higher. Lloyd’s could face losses of $330m or more, based on its exposure to last September’s earthquake.It took a $324m loss from the 2010 quake, equivalent to 5.9 per cent of all losses, said JP Morgan analyst Andreas de Groot van Embden in a note. Amlin lost $160m while Beazley, Catlin, Hiscox and others each lost less than $60m. Peel Hunt analysts led by Stuart Duncan also expected yesterday’s loss to outstrip the September quake, and said reinsurers of state-backed home insurer the New Zealand Earthquake Commission may be worst-affected. Lloyd’s spokesperson Sarah Robson said it was too early for it to estimate its exposure to the quake. “Lloyd’s is contacting all of its partners in the region to ensure they are safe and accounted for. We will do everything we can to support them and to help the city recover by processing and paying claims as quickly as possible,” she said.

But a couple of days ago I started to hit the ball where I wanted it, and everything came back, the rhythm came back. Finchy and Davey set an excellent platform, we could come and just take off. I wasn’t thinking too much out there, just seeing the ball and hitting it. That’s probably when I bat my best. I took a few more risks than I would normally, targeted some bowlers and fortunately it came off today. I thought it was a bit high (on the lbw referral) and fortunately it was. You need a bit of luck sometimes, nice to ride it today and score a few for the team”.17:38: Starc to Mohammed Shami, OUTThe Starc yorker on show finally. Too good for Shami, blockhole and off stump knocked back. Not been a happy day for Starc, but he at least has one trademark wicket now17:25: Zampa to Jadeja, OUTThis time he picks out wide long-on. Down the track again, didn’t get the elevation he had last time, and hits it flatter. Starc moves smartly to his left and pouches the ball, making the catch look easier than it was Cricket 13:36: End of Innings: Australia posts a mammoth score of 374/6Steve Smith and Aaron Finch hit brilliant centuries as Australia posted a massive target of 374/6 in 50 overs. Not to forget the cameo from Glenn Maxwell and this will take some batting from the Indians to chase down this target. Back for the chase in a bit.13:16: Yuzvendra Chahal had an expensive affair in SydneyMost runs conceded by an Indian spinner in ODIs89 Y Chahal vs Aus Sydney 2020 *88 Y Chahal vs Eng Edgbaston 201985 P Chawla vs Pak Mirpur 200884 Kuldeep vs NZ Hamilton 202013:00: After 48 overs, 354/5Steve Smith continues to fire as he gets close to his 100. India will be up for a big task today in Sydney. 16:44: After 34 overs, 227/4Dhawan flicks Cummins for a timely boundary and India needs 148 runs from 16 overs.16:40: After 33 overs, 221/4Maxwell puts down a tough chance off his own bowling to hand Pandya a life. Dhawan needs to motor on as the more he consumes deliveries, the pressure will be more on Pandya16:34: Sportsmanship be like!!! 12:52 pm: Steve Smith takes charge in powerplay; After 45 overs; 330/4Out! Maxwell depart as Mhd Shami gets his second wicket of the match. It certainly was an important wicket for India. However, the visitors have once again lost its momentum as Steve Smith has taken charge to help the Aussies reach a big total. Virat Kohli completes 10 years in Test Cricket: 10 things you should know about India skipper- check out IND vs AUS 1st ODI: Hardik Pandya’s career-best effort wasn’t good enough to compensate for a forgettable bowling effort as India slumped to a 66-run defeat against Australia in the first ODI, making a rather unimpressive start to the tour, here on Friday.Virat Kohli’s men started exactly on a note they wouldn’t have liked, giving away 374 runs in 50 overs with rival captain Aaron Finch (114 off 124 balls) and his illustrious predecessor Steve Smith (105 off 66 balls) hitting contrasting hundreds. By Kunal Dhyani – November 28, 2020 9:17 am: Mhd. Shami starts strong for India. 1st over — 1/0Shami opened the bowling for India. It was a good 1st over.

Finch is still going steady, and Smith has also started hitting big now.11:41 am: After 29 overs, 158/1 Chahal spoils a good over by over-stepping and Finch punishes the leg-spinner by dispatching him the backward point boundary.11:27 am: Finally!! India its first success; After 27 overs, 157/1Mhd Shami got an important wicket of David Warner who looked dangerous playing at 69. It was a wide yorker which edged and it was a safe catch for KL Rahul. 12:40 pm: Personal take on the match“Not sure why at long-off they are so much inside the rope. This is easily the third time when they have missed a catch or given extra runs on that account. Staying at the rope is so basic”12:29 pm: India continue its fight to stay in the game; After 41 overs, 273/3With two quick wickets, courtesy of Jasprit Bumrah and Yuzvendra Chahal, India continues its fight to stay in the game. Aaron Finch scored an impressive 114 runs, while Marcus Stoinis departed for a duck.12:18 pm: Aaron Finch scores 100, Steve Smith gets a half-century; After 39 overs, 252/1Australia’s top-order starts the series with a bang. The trio has gone big, each scoring over 50 runs. While Aaron Finch played the captain’s knock, Smith and David Warner supported him well from the other side. 8:54 am: 3 records in reckoning for Virat KohliVirat Kohli will be the man to watch out for as India take on Australia in the first of three ODI series in Sydney on Friday. The game will be all the more important as there are a number of milestones in his sights.

Enter Your Email Address Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares If there’s ever been a time to invest in FTSE 100 stocks, it’s now. I know this sounds counter-intuitive when a stock market crash is underway. Stock markets can be volatile at such times since the index is super sensitive to incoming news and analysis. As information about gloom and doom piles up, it’s easy to put off investing for a later date. This is especially true if I’m just about to start investing. But what if I know exactly what I’m looking for in the newsflow? Would it still look as daunting? Perhaps not. Not each piece of incoming information will impact share prices, not in the long run, even if it appears important during the stock market crash. 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…Look out for the verifiable upside despite the stock market crashAnd that, for me, is the key point to remember when I start by investing £500. The question that arises now is, how do I figure out key information from the sea of stock market crash stories? Despite all the grim stories around us, there are still reports to the contrary. I’m looking for these ones. An example is the news piece I read yesterday about the FTSE 100 pharmaceuticals giant AstraZeneca, which is starting clinical trials of its Covid-19 treatment soon. It is best if the news is straight from the company itself.Only time will tell whether or not AstraZeneca’s treatment is a success. But as things stand, it’s a positive for the company. Not only is AZN looking for a cure for a disease that’s brought the world to its knees, it could add to its credentials as well. AZN is already a highly valued pharmaceutical company, with a meteoric price-to-earning ratio of 74 times, despite the stock market crash. I think it might be expensive, but I’d like to consider it as a possible investment. Another example is the FTSE 100 low-cost airline easyJet. There’s much information available on its troubled situation. But more recently, it appears that it may well come through the Covid-19 crisis and stock market crash. Based on this, I’d look for further news on the stock if I’m still undecided about whether to invest in it or not. Not all positives mean somethingI’d focus on positive news flow, but consider it with care. Not all positive developments in a stock market crash will necessarily amount to long-term gains. Consider the examples of online grocery delivery providers like Ocado or even brick-and-mortar grocers like Tesco and J Sainsbury.Panic buying and the lockdown temporarily increased their sales in mid-March, but they decreased sharply in the next 10 days, according to Lloyds Bank research. If the recession is as stark as forecasts indicate, discretionary spending will fall. This can hit grocers as well. In short, I’m looking for positives pertaining to FTSE 100 companies when I start investing my first £500. Among these, I like those that give insight into long-term potential. These, I think, can be a good starting point to ensure my capital grows despite the stock market crash. Don’t waste the stock market crash!

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Don’t miss our special stock presentation.It contains details of a UK-listed company our Motley Fool UK analysts are extremely enthusiastic about.They think it’s offering an incredible opportunity to grow your wealth over the long term – at its current price – regardless of what happens in the wider market.That’s why they’re referring to it as the FTSE’s ‘double agent’.Because they believe it’s working both with the market… And against it.To find out why we think you should add it to your portfolio today… There’s a ‘double agent’ hiding in the FTSE… we recommend you buy it! Rupert Hargreaves | Wednesday, 10th March, 2021 | More on: AZN LSEG Considering the improving outlook for the economy, I’ve been searching for FTSE 100 shares to buy right now. I believe a couple of companies have recently fallen on hard times but could generate outstanding returns for investors in the long run. FTSE 100 bargainThe first company I’d buy for my portfolio of blue-chip stocks today is AstraZeneca (LSE: AZN). Since the middle of last year, shares in this pharmaceutical giant have declined in value by around 23%, excluding dividends. 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 think this is a great opportunity to take advantage. After these declines, shares in the FTSE 100 business are changing hands at just 15 times 2020 projected earnings. That’s compared to the pharmaceutical sector average of around 18. Having said that, these are only projections at this stage. There’s no guarantee the company will manage to hit the earnings forecasts analysts have currently laid out.Indeed, analysts expect the group’s net income to increase to 200% over the next two years. While Astra will benefit from the booming demand for its coronavirus jab, this projected growth seems a tad optimistic. There’s also the risk that income could decline as the pandemic recedes and the need for the jab falls. Still, there’s more to this FTSE 100 group that its coronavirus vaccine. It is a leader in the development and production of oncology treatments, and several of these are expected to yield significant profits for the organisation in the next few years. This potential, coupled with the group’s discounted valuation, leads me to conclude this is one of the best shares to buy now. That’s why I’d buy the stock for my portfolio today. Best shares to buy right nowLate last week, shares in the London Stock Exchange (LSE: LSEG) plunged after the company warned that rising costs would hit its bottom line in the next few years.But while other investors have been selling, I think this could be an excellent opportunity to snap up shares in this exchange operator at a discounted valuation. Right now, the stock is changing hands at a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) multiple of 27, compared to its long-term average of around 30. The London Stock Exchange has a huge competitive advantage over most financial services firms in the UK. It operates the at plumb end of the stock market. That means market participants almost have no choice but to use its services. This has led to growing profitability over the past five years. Net income at the FTSE 100 firm has expanded at a compound annual rate of 5% over the period. As we advance, I think the group should be able to build on its existing position in the financial markets to drive growth.That said, it does face some significant risks. These include antitrust investigations, increased regulations, and rising costs. And just because the London Stock Exchange is the largest market operator today doesn’t mean it will continue to be so indefinitely. Competitors are emerging, and these could eat away at its market share over the long term. Looking past these risks, I’d buy this stock for my portfolio as I believe it’s one of the best shares to buy right now in the FTSE 100.

Pardis Khane is a private residential project having 5 stories above ground devoted to 10 units of 120 and 130 square meters. The building has 3 floors below ground. There is a watchman room in first basement and also two levels for parking area. The sport facilities like the swimming pool, Jacuzzi and gym are located in the third basement.Save this picture!© Deed StudioSave this picture!DiagramSave this picture!© Deed StudioThe facade is a combination of a simple planar surface that completely encloses a volume by making diagonal section cut. The main surface is a lattice made of wood carving which is cut in some points to reveal the stone volume. The wooden surface has special pattern deign inspired by the growth of plant’s leaves, metaphorically the cedar, while the other surface is totally covered by turquoise stone, a local Iranian material with its unique color that has always had significant role in Iranian gardens either used as tiles or the existence of water itself.Save this picture!© Deed StudioThe mentioned concept in volume design, the diagonal section cut, is also reflected in interior spaces like walls of corridors or leaving rooms. The terraces covered by turquoise stone have created a link between the outer and inner space, they are all made of glass enabling the residents to have the entire view of green outer space besides the joy of attractive patterns created by sunlight. The resident can simply go on the balcony and touch a tree in marked height. Like the main planting pattern of hanging garden, there have been cedar trees on the facade planted on the 1st, 2nd and 5th floor.Save this picture!© Deed StudioThe dynamic wooden lattice is so flexible that can be opened or closed by users to adjust privacy. Moreover, the play of sunlight during sunrise and also sunset creates soothing atmosphere in the home originated from Iranian traditional architecture which makes it not aesthetically but also climatically responsive building. For more artistic skyline, a flat black suspended shading device is designed on the top of roof. There is a small garden in the lobby of the house with small trees and bushes creating special beauty.Save this picture!Facade Opning Diagram 04Moving along the lobby there is a Back yard which is like a sunken courtyard surrounded by floored trees, there is a small pond inside, decorated by turquoise stones. Besides a green area in the patio we can see another green space. The special attention to gardens is also seen on the roof of the building since there is a roof garden awakening the resident’s senses to unique experience.”Save this picture!© Deed StudioIn This place, the passing of time is not noticed, it’s a poetic space for peace of souls” one of the occupants said. In the pool space, despite the shining, gaudy similar places, the swimming pool has a cozy atmosphere with mystic qualities of lighting leading to a peaceful personal privacy…room in which to be. All of the rooms are divided by glass partition for the limitless transparency and making the sense of wholeness in the space. At last, it is important to be mentioned that all these architectural constructions originating from traditional local Iranian architecture have been implemented in a modern style.Save this picture!© Deed StudioProject gallerySee allShow lessBrick Mask House / Spacefiction StudioSelected ProjectsPine Needles Residence / NDDSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Tehran, Tehran Province, IranLocation to be used only as a reference.

Almost half (45%) of UK consumers have made a donation via their mobile phones but many charities do not yet have a mobile-responsive site, according to a report by Episerver.Episerver questioned 20 leading UK charities and 1,200 UK consumers for its Giving on the Go report. The research looks at the mobile strategies of the non-profit sector, examining the extent to which charities are meeting growing demand for mobile-enabled payments and how non-profits could benefit from a giving-on-the-go approach.It found that while three out of five of the UK’s top charities offer an iPhone app, the majority of them are promotional rather than used as a way to accept payments or encourage donations with only 25% capable of managing donations. The survey also found that few of the charities benchmarked provided Android apps, while a quarter lack a responsive mobile website altogether, with some relying on mobile redirects and others having no mobile-friendly site at all.However, mobile is increasingly important for consumers: according to the report 45% of consumers say they will leave a mobile site immediately if they have difficulty accessing it while mobile payments are rising with 45% of consumers having made a donation via their mobiles in the past year. Around one in five (22%) people donate to a charity in this way at least once a month, while 37% have used their mobiles to make an annual donation.The report also found that women make more donations via a mobile phone or tablet than men, but that men are more likely to do so frequently and on a repeat basis. Age-wise, people aged 25-34 are the most likely to donate via a mobile device, with a quarter (25%) making a mobile donation at least once a week, while 74% of the over 55s have never made a donation this way.Joey Moore, Director of Product Marketing at Episerver, said:“Now more than ever, mobile payment is playing a huge role in both marketing and the day-to-day activities of consumers. Already, many of us have grown accustomed to purchasing food, clothing and travel using mobile payment apps; charitable donations are simply the next step in this evolving trend.“Charities and non-profits have a big opportunity to use mobile technologies for maximum impact. As a generation of mobile-first consumers emerge, those organisations that fail to develop mobile-friendly websites or quick-pay apps will increasingly lose out on potential donations and future long-term patrons.” 137 total views, 1 views today Advertisement Tagged with: donation processing mobile Research / statistics 138 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis7 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.
