MP anger over UK contribution to aid

first_img whatsapp whatsapp Monday 22 November 2010 8:10 pm KCS-content Tags: NULL CRITICS from across the political spectrum yesterday voiced their opposition to chancellor George Osborne’s decision that the UK should contribute several billion to the Irish bailout. Labour MP John Mann said that he would vote against the contribution, saying: “What George Osborne has chosen to do is use money from the average taxpayer to bail out the bankers – including British bankers – yet again.”Tory Douglas Carswell MP also voiced his discontent, highlighting that the mooted figure of £7bn for a UK contribution was “more than we struggled to reduce public expenditure by when we first came to office.”John Redwood MP, also a Conservative, said: “We’ve just gone through quite a big exercise making cuts so we’re not looking for ways to spend several billion more outside the UK.”However, Osborne is likely to win any vote on the matter, with all the three main parties supporting his decision.

Should I buy AstraZeneca shares on vaccine news?

first_img See all posts by Roland Head Roland Head | Monday, 23rd November, 2020 | More on: AZN Roland Head has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. 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. 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. The AstraZeneca (LSE: AZN) share price fell slightly this morning, despite good news on the firm’s Covid-19 vaccine. Trials suggest the vaccine is up to 90% effective and AstraZeneca says it will apply for regulatory approval to start deploying the vaccine.The vaccine isn’t the only new product in AstraZeneca’s portfolio. Sales of new medicines rose by 34% to nearly $10bn during the third quarter of the year. Should I be buying the shares, or do share price gains mean that a more cautious attitude makes sense?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…Vaccine successAstraZeneca shares spiked to a record high of £87 in July, when the company said phase one and two trials showed a good response to the vaccine. The firm has now released interim results from the large-scale phase-three trial of the AZD1222 Covid-19 vaccine. This has been developed in partnership with scientists at Oxford University.The phase-three trial results show that the vaccine is 90% effective if it’s given as a half dose followed by a full dose at least one month later. Other dosing regimens were less effective, but the average achieved was 70%.It seems like a good result to me. The firm is now applying for regulatory approval to start deploying the vaccine. The company has experience of large-scale manufacturing and says the vaccine can be stored in normal fridge temperatures for extended periods. This should make it easier to deploy than the Pfizer vaccine, which needs unusually cold storage.Shareholders won’t benefit from the Covid-19 vaccine directly, as AstraZeneca has already said it won’t profit from the vaccine during the pandemic.However, the rapid development of this new product suggests to me AstraZeneca’s all-important R&D division is performing well. This vaccine success also seems to support the group’s strategy of linking with many smaller external partners on new products.New medicine sales growthAstraZeneca’s recent third-quarter results confirm that newer products are making an increasing contribution to the group’s sales. Total sales for the first nine months of 2020 rose by 9% to $18,879m. But sales of new medicines climbed 34% to $9,894m. This means new medicines have generated more than half the group’s sales this year.This result looks like evidence that chief executive Pascal Soriot’s strategy of investing heavily in new products is starting to pay off. Sales were in decline until 2018, but are now growing steadily again.Investors have backed Soriot’s judgement and AstraZeneca shares have risen by 80% over the last five years. I want to increase my exposure to the healthcare sector, but is it too late to buy?AstraZeneca shares: my verdictI should probably have bought AstraZeneca shares when they were trading at around £40 five years ago. But now that the stock is hovering around £82, can it still deliver attractive returns?As things stand, the shares are trading on about 27 times 2020 forecast earnings. City analysts expect profits to rise by 25% in 2021, which would push the price/earnings ratio down to 22.At this level, I think a lot of growth is already priced into AstraZeneca stock. I don’t think the shares offer much of a safety margin. Any disappointment could knock the valuation, in my view. If I already owned the shares, I’d probably sit tight. But I think I’ll find better opportunities to buy in the future. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Most of its income will come from from unclaimed deposit monies paid to tenants but never cashed, “even after strenuous efforts to track down the tenants”.The TDS is a government approved provider of tenancy deposit protection and alternative dispute resolution in England and Wales.Steve Harriott, Chief Executive of TDS said:“The TDS Charitable Foundation is the next step in our long term commitment to helping raise standards in the private rented sector. Industry practices are coming under close scrutiny at the moment, but training and accreditation remain entirely voluntary in the lettings industry.“Letting property unprepared leaves everyone open to risk and we hope the TDS Charitable Foundation will help make support more accessible for landlords, letting agents and tenants, and provide valuable resources for providers of training and education.”The TDS Charitable Foundation is a registered charity and will begin accepting applications for funding from April 2014.

She also plans to make financial firms admit wrongdoing as part of settlements in addition to the fines they pay to the government—and ensure that those fines cut into the executives’ bonuses.“The proper role of Wall Street is to help Main Street grow and prosper,” Clinton said. “When our financial sector works the right way, it helps families buy their first homes, entrepreneurs start and grow small businesses and hardworking Americans save for retirement. Rather than pursuing the kind of high-stakes speculation that devastated our economy before, Wall Street should focus on building an economy that creates good-paying jobs, rising incomes and sound investments so that more families can achieve the security of a middle-class life.” Share Save in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Hillary ClintonDemocrats have repeatedly vowed to fight any attempts by Republicans to roll back the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010. Now, one of them is taking it one step further.In an editorial in the New York Times on Monday, former Secretary of State and current Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, said that as president she would “go well beyond Dodd-Frank” by vetoing any attempt to weaken financial reform and fighting for “tough new rules, stronger enforcement, and more accountability.”Clinton said the first part of her plan is to “further rein in major financial institutions.” She proposes to do this by imposing a new risk fee on banks with more than $50 billion in assets and other financial institutions deemed “systemically important” in order to discourage activities by those institutions that might lead to another crisis.“I would also ensure that the federal government has—and is prepared to use—the authority and tools necessary to reorganize, downsize and ultimately break up any financial institution that is too large and risky to be managed effectively,” Clinton wrote. “No bank or financial firm should be too big to manage.”Clinton said she also plans to strengthen the Volcker Rule, a key provision of Dodd-Frank, by closing loopholes that allow banks to speculate using deposits backed by taxpayers.The plan also includes the whole financial sector and not just banks, Clinton said, since many of the firms such as AIG and Lehman Brothers that contributed to the financial crisis in 2008 were not traditional banks. Clinton said she plans to strengthen oversight of activities of hedge funds, investment banks, and other non-bank financial institutions by imposing strict margin requirements on the kind of borrowing that led to the crisis.

It is the sole premier institute in the State of Jharkhand and as such, in the Pandemic COVID-19, non-availability of CT scan machine in an institute like RIMS is the matter of serious concern. Due surge in Corona Pandemic, the State is heading towards health emergency. Sick people have been compelled to move in anticipation that the officials’ machinery will cater their needs but all in vain as there is shortage of testing facilities, beds and medical infrastructure to deal with the situation. What to say of others, the premier institution like RIMS is not having a CT scan machine.” The Court o observed at the outset. The Court had on previous hearing dated 8th April had observed thus: “The State authorities must keep in mind that Corona pandemic is at surge and the CT Scan Machine is a primary diagnostic apparatus/ equipment which is required for proper investigation as to whether Corona infection has reached to the lungs or not. It goes without saying that whenever Corona comes down the lungs, the situation becomes grave and the life of a patient becomes at stake. In such a situation, this is a very pitiable thing that an Institution like RIMS is not having even a single CT Scan Machine in its hospital today. ” Followed by this, during the course of previous hearing dated 12th April, the Court while expressing its concern on the situation, was apprised by the Secretary of Health Department of the State that a proposal has been placed before the Cabinet Coordination Committee for post facto approval of purchase of CT Scan machine. It was due to this that the Court had directed the Secretary to apprise the Court on the update of such purchase on the next date of hearing. In view of this, it was submitted by the Principal Secretary of Health and Family Welfare Department of the State that CT Scan machine will be purchased soon for which a proposal will be placed before the Governing Body for taking a decision and also for the purchase of RT PCR machines in view of the heavy load of samples due to which reports were not coming out in time, leading to the spread of covid 19 infections. It was also submitted that the Secretary has coordinated with the Departmental Minister for convening a meeting of Governing Body on 13th April. On the other hand, Ranchi Municipal Corporation had informed the Court that the Electric Crematorium was not in a working position due to heavy load, however, serious efforts were being taken to make it workable. In view of the aforesaid submissions, the Court issued the following directions: – The Deputy Commissioner, Ranchi and Ranchi Municipal Corporation will coordinate and apprise this Court, about the Electric Crematorium which has been constructed at Ghagra Ghat (near Swarna Rekha River) how to make it operational, by way of an affidavit to be filed before the next date of hearing. – The Principal Secretary, Health and Family Welfare Department will apprise this Court about up-date pertaining to purchase of CT scan machine as also the decision of the Governing Body scheduled to be held today on 5:00 p.m. The matter will now be heard on 17th April 2021.Click Here To Read OrderNext Storylast_img read more

HUSTLE AND BUSTLE: Steed looks back on thriving grocery store in downtown Brundidge

first_img Steed also helped at the market.“Mr. Lamar would order a quarter of a cow and hang it in the cooler until he had a customer, then he would cut the meat to order. He ground his own hamburger meat and cut up his chickens with a pulley bone. Fresh ham that wasn’t cut until it was bought. On Thursdays, the fish truck came from Warren’s seafood in Panama City. Mr. Lamar always bought mullet and red snapper and two cans of salt fish. We would be out of fish before we closed on Saturday.”Steed said women from out in the country would trade yard eggs for their groceries. The fruits and vegetables came on a truck and shoppers served themselves. “On Saturdays, the town would start to fill up around dinnertime and stay that way until after the picture show closed at 9 p.m.  Men would wait until the picture show was over to get their haircuts and shampoos,” Steed said. “You couldn’t find a place to sit down in the barber shops. Store owners would be out sweeping the sidewalks at 10 o’clock at night.  They would sweep the trash into the street and a city worker would come pick the trash up with a scoop.”Steed said in those day stores lined both sides of the street and storeowners were diligent about keeping their shopfronts “presentable.”“Starting on the north and west side of town, was the Western Auto, City Market, Parks Grocery, People’s Electric, Star Store (now ALFA), Logan Drug Store, Brundidge Bank, Francis Johnston Mercantile, S.E. Hightower, Steed’s Barbershop and John Boswell’s Dry Cleaners,” Steed said. “Then there was Walter Bass Dry Goods, Paul Hilreth Seed and Feed and the Post Office.”Across the street to the north was the Greyhound Bus Station and Telegraph Office, Haisten Hardware, City Hall and Police Station. On the south side were First National Bank, V.J. Elmore, Johnston Drugs, Jackson Hardware, Jitney Jungle, M.L. McDowell Grocery, Stinson Barbershop, O.K. Ramage, City Café, Mable Belcher’s, Tyner Hardware, Wallace Pump & Supply, Perry Owens’ Ford Dealership, Anderson’s Hamburger Shop and Dickert Building & Supply.“That didn’t include Nicholson’s and Black’s grocery stores on the back streets and the ice house and cotton gins and feed mills.”“At that time, a lot of farmers brought their cotton to the gin on a mule and wagon,” Steed said. “Men would sit on window sills, on benches or just stand around and talk while they waited for cotton to be ginned and that might be up to 14 hours.”Steed said just being in town and amid the hustle and bustle of a town on the move was exciting.“I guess one thing that I remember most and probably everybody who remembers that time is Mrs. Anderson’s hamburgers,” Steed said. “She would slice the meat paper thin with a knife and fry it on the grill, put the meat in a bun, put the bun on the grill, flip it, salt it and put a pickle on top. That was the best hamburger I’ve ever had.”Steed said he can close his eyes and bask in the memories of Brundidge in days gone by. “I have been blessed to live in such a wonderful town and to have known such wonderful people,” he said. “And, I’m blessed to have the memories.” Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson HUSTLE AND BUSTLE: Steed looks back on thriving grocery store in downtown Brundidge You Might Like Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Sponsored Content Latest Stories Email the author Print Article By The Penny Hoarder Steed later worked for Kelly’s Tires and then owned and operated Steed Tire Service in Brundidge from 1977 until 2018.
