St Ives to sell magazine arm

first_img Tags: NULL whatsapp Share whatsapp Printing company St Ives said it agreed to sell its loss-making magazine business for £20m to a unit of private equity firm Walstead Investments. St Ives, which prints a range of products from books to CD and DVD cases, said it would receive £15m in cash on completion of the deal and £5m in loan notes. Walstead Investments is backed by Bank Leumi, Israel’s largest bank. St Ives’ magazine business has been struggling in recent years as excess capacity in the market lowered prices, and advertising and content moved to digital formats. The division posted a pre-tax loss of £5.1m on revenue of £70.5m.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Over the last two months, the broader UK equity markets have surged well over 20%, showing a reasonably quick recovery following the crash in March. Many people are wondering if they should start investing in stocks to enjoy more income in retirement. I believe now is a great time to invest and participate in the growth of our economy as well as in share prices.Even if you only have a few pounds to spare every week, you can invest for considerable wealth in your golden years. Believe it or not, the power of compound interest can transform even small amounts into remarkable sums in retirement 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…Investing in FTSE sharesFirst a bit of terminology for those who are thinking of investing in the stock market. The London Stock Exchange (LSE) is the primary stock exchange in the UK and the largest in Europe.As described on the LSE website, the “FTSE (pronounced Footsie) Group is an independent organisation jointly owned by the Financial Times and the London Stock Exchange.” It has several indexes of shares covering not only the UK but also other global markets.The most famous index in the UK is the FTSE 100, which began in 1984. Most companies are multinational conglomerates. The FTSE 250 index consists of the 101st to the 350th largest companies listed on the LSE. It was launched in 1992. Companies in it usually have a more domestic focus so they are more directly affected by shorter-term developments in the UK economy. The wide range of companies in the two indexes enable us to invest in different ways. For example, there is the opportunity to invest in FTSE 250 growth companies with a long-term horizon. It is also possible to find established FTSE 100 companies with stable cash flows and robust dividend payouts.My Motley Fool colleagues regularly point out that, over the long run, the stock market returns about 6% to 8% annually, on average. You can be wealthy in retirementLet’s assume that you are now 30 years old with £5,000 in savings and that you plan to retire at age 65.You decide to put that £5,000 in a fund now and make an additional £5,000 of contributions annually at the start of the year. You have 35 years to invest. The annual return is 6%, compounded once a year. At the end of 35 years, the total amount saved becomes £629,034.Investing £5,000 a year would mean being able to put aside around £417 a month or about £14 a day. Might you just be wondering if you should skip that next impulse purchase?If you could increase your annual contributions to £6,000, then the total would be £747,155.Over time, your investing returns will always be a function of what you put in. The more you can contribute regularly, the more money you can have in your retirement years.You may want to take advantage of monthly direct deposits into your investment account. Such recurring transactions force you to continually invest in the stock market in both good and bad times.What I’d buy It’s important that you build a retirement portfolio to secure your future. There are several companies I’d consider investing in. In the FTSE 100, they include AstraZeneca, British American Tobacco, Flutter Entertainment, National Grid, and Unilever.In the FTSE 250, I like ConvaTec Group, Cranswick, Dechra Pharmaceuticals, and Softcat as potential long-term investments.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Sharescenter_img This time last year, I made my pick for our Motley Fool ‘Top UK shares for 2020’ feature. The stock I chose was FTSE SmallCap-listed Capital Gearing Trust (LSE: CGT).Today, I’m going to discuss four things. First, why I picked CGT. Second, how the company handled what has been one of the most extraordinary years. Third, how its shares have performed. And finally, whether I’d buy the stock for 2021.5G 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…Why I picked CGT as my top UK shareHere’s what I wrote in the article this time last year: “I’m making [CGT] my top buy for 2020 not because I’d expect it to make the biggest gains if we have a raging bull market. It won’t. Not with little more than 30% exposure to equities, and substantial holdings of cash and lower-risk assets, such as index-linked government bonds. However, this positioning offers relative downside protection — as well as the potential to pick up equities at dirt-cheap prices — in the event of a bear market. As such, I see Capital Gearing, which has a long history of steady, lower-risk returns, as a top buy for whatever 2020 brings.”I can claim no prescience of the Covid-19 pandemic. All I knew was that, after a record bull run in equity markets driven by a decade of extraordinary asset-inflating low interest rates and money-printing, there was an elevated risk we were looking at a bubble in search of a pin. And one thing we know from history is that a bubble will invariably find one — typically in an unexpected quarter.In picking CGT as my top UK share for 2020, I was merely being mindful of the great Warren Buffett’s advice to “be fearful when others are greedy.”Dirt-cheap pricesAs I mentioned, CGT came into 2020 with little more than 30% exposure to equities. It had sold or trimmed a fair number of holdings on valuation grounds. I noted its positioning gave it the potential to pick up equities at dirt-cheap prices in the event of a bear market. And this is what it did. As of 30 November, equities accounted for 48% of its portfolio.I’d say CGT has done a very good job of navigating the extraordinary turmoil of 2020. And the performance of its share price reflects this.Smashed the wider marketAt the time of our Top UK shares for 2020 article, the CGT share price was 4,310p. It bottomed at 3,810p (down 12%) in March. This compared with a crash of 32% for the FTSE All-Share index.Today, the CGT share price is 4,660p, up 8% since I tipped it for 2020. A decent performance in absolute terms (in line with its annualised return over two decades), and a very strong performance against the index, which is down 8%.My top UK share for 2021?I’ve always maintained CGT is a good stock for adding some defensive robustness to a portfolio. Or for investors wanting exposure to the stock market without going ‘all-in’. But is CGT my top UK share for 2021?Markets have rallied strongly from the crash, but my concerns about interest rates, money-printing, and corporate debt remain. As such, I’d be happy to buy asset-prices-conscious CGT today, even though it’s not my top UK share for 2021. I think there are a number of other stocks — particularly in the UK market — currently trading at attractive valuations. Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Second Harvest facilitating donations to Hurricane Harvey victims

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter  Feeding America Network to Coordinate Disaster Relief Plan  Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida is accepting non-perishable food donations specifically for Texas flood relief efforts. As part of the Feeding America Network, Second Harvest and other food banks across the country stand ready to support the recovery phase of the flooding caused by the storm.Through its major disaster relief plan, Feeding America will channel millions of meals into the affected areas as soon as the rescue phase has passed. Food banks such as Second Harvest will distribute collected donations through Feeding America and may be asked to send staff who are experienced in disaster relief.“Our team is ready to send collected food to Texas while maintaining our own readiness in Central Florida during this hurricane season,” said Greg Higgerson, vice president of development for Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida.Although the needs of the victims are many, Second Harvest can accept only donations of non-perishable foods. Furniture, clothing and other household items cannot be donated through the food bank.“The easiest and most effective way to give back to the victims remains a financial donation directly to the Houston Food Bank or Feeding Texas,” said Dave Krepcho, president and CEO of Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. “Sending any goods to the affected areas in an uncoordinated way is likely to contribute to the ‘disaster within a disaster’ that often results in these situations.”Hurricane Harvey has dumped approximately 11 trillion gallons of water on Houston and the surrounding areas. As many as 30,000 people will be evacuated from their homes.To donate to the Houston Food Bank, visit www.houstonfoodbank.org.To donate to Feeding Texas, visit www.feedingtexas.org.For more information on Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, visit www.FeedHopeNow.org.Local non-perishable food donations for Texas flood relief may be dropped off at the following locations:Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida (main distribution center)411 Mercy DriveOrlando, Fla. 32805Contact: Carlos Santamaria, director of operationsPhone: 407-295-1066Email: [email protected] donations Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.Volusia Branch 320 North St.Daytona Beach, Fla. 32114Contact: Robert Thomas, Volusia operations managerPhone: 386-257-4499Email: [email protected] donations Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.Brevard Branch6928A Vickie CircleWest Melbourne, Fla. 32904Contact: Greg Hansen, Brevard operations managerPhone: 321-733-1600Email: [email protected] donations Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.About Second Harvest Food Bank of Central FloridaSHFBCF is a member of Feeding America – the largest charitable domestic hunger-relief organization in the United States.

Last year, with the help of food and financial donors, volunteers and a caring, committed community, the food bank distributed 54 million meals to partner programs such as food pantries, soup kitchens, women’s shelters, senior centers, day care centers and Kids Cafes. In addition, Second Harvest’s 14-week culinary program teaches foodservice-based technical, life and employability skills to economically hard-pressed adults.

Mama Mia One of my all time favorite people, that I used to watch with great amusement, and liked her was the late great Anna Nicole Smith, born Vickie Lynn Hogan……she was born there in Houston, Texas in 1967. What a life she lived! Add her to the list of people I admired, along with Princess Diana. According to a commentary in the Orlando Sentinel, a day or so ago, oh, I must be a desperate person in need of applause, because I admired Princess Diana, like so many other millions of people, and the commentary claimed that Diana was desperate person and seeking applause, and that we Princess Diana admirers seek the same as her……..see, I told you all along, I could of been one of the Desperate Housewives of Wisteria Lane…..LOL I wouldn’t want to be the President of the US. Damn if you do, damn if you don’t, no matter what a president does, he is under major scrutiny. What he wears, where he goes, when he goes, what he says, who he takes with him, and is criticized for what he says, and if he just sits there and says nothing, then he is criticized for not talking! Impossible to please everyone. Not that there are things he should be called on for, but just for going to Corpus Christie and viewing the hurricane damage, he got blasted for everything, you name it. I don’t feel sorry for him though….LOL August 30, 2017 at 11:12 pm Please enter your name here Reply Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. August 30, 2017 at 5:07 pm August 30, 2017 at 8:04 pm Reply Best Buy in the Texas hurricane area had a sign advertising a 24 case of Dasani bottled drinking water for $ 42.96. It usually goes for around $ 5.00 at the grocery stores there, give or take a little. When customers said that is price gouging, Best Buy said it was an honest mistake, and that some store employees had taken the price for an single bottle of the water, and had multiplied it by 24 bottles, and that is how the high price occurred. Hmmm? One gas station was turned in to the state’s price gouging hot line, and was selling cases of bottled drinking water for $ 99.00. Ironic that the problem in that part of Texas is all the water everywhere, and yet the flood victims are getting the shaft when buying needed drinking water.

That’s the name. Looks like it is heading in from the east, and upward toward us, if it doesn’t change course. Possibly could be here 10 days away, and at this point, it is just an Atlantic tropical storm, but it could worsen and be a potential threat to us here in Central Florida. Mama Mia If Anna Nicole Smith were still alive today, she would be turning the big 50 this November. Hard to believe. Mama Miacenter_img August 30, 2017 at 5:22 pm I heard something about Trump wants to reduce the tax rate on corporations from 35% down to 15%. How does he expect to build the border wall, re-build all the infrastructure that he has said he wants, pay for the massive hurricane relief, pay for the increased troops he is going to send to Afghanistan, and build up our military with new fighter jets, warships, arms, and nuclear arsenal that he wants, have funds for emergencies, funds for all the wars he wants, and funds for Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and funds for the Veterans that he has promised, as well as so many other additional things that he wants like way more ICE agents, and Home Land Security equipment, people, and programs to fight terrorism. Does not make sense where he plans to get all the money needed. Maybe he is just looking out for his own corporations and their bottom line, and his own wallet, and not the people of this country….. I bet I know what will get the ax from the above list. So much for voting a business person in as president of the country. August 30, 2017 at 7:50 pm August 30, 2017 at 6:00 pm Apopka Critic, no offense, but get it right OK? You say Lamont Sanford is running for Orange Co. Mayor….OK, if you say so….whatever….I am not trying to be petty, but actually AC, Mrs. Demings is your US Representative, a member of Congress and not “just” your State Representative. I would not of pointed this out to you, but I’m certain Mrs. Demings’s husband, Mr. Sanford, would prefer you get all the facts correct….LOL I’m referring to your posting on your website. FEMA is 25 million $$$$$ in debt, right now, and that is before Hurricane Harvey pay out. We don’t need the border wall built right now, my opinion.

None of those ugly crocs, flip- flops, or rubber boots…..oh dear me…….livin’ da life……LOL Reply You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here The people who are posting things about why Hurricane Harvey happened and tying it to God’s wrath and as a punishment of certain people, and to politics from both sides, is getting to be a ridiculous. I saw where a visiting professor got fired for his controversial posting from his leftist viewpoint about the hurricane, and I also read Ann Coulter’s rightwing viewpoint as to why she believed Hurricane Harvey happened, and really, both sides are ridiculous! Ann Coulter was slick about what she posted, as she stated she wasn’t saying what she said, but really was. You can look it up what she said. These political comments should stop, when referring to what caused the hurricane! Those hurricane victims have enough problems without that crud. I am learning of more and more of those who have died in the floodwaters. Whole families, little kids, elderly people, a policeman trying to get to work, and others,and it is heartbreaking. The political nonsense needs to stop, but probably won’t regarding the hurricane. Now the Congress members are fighting over Hurricane Sandy and Hurricane Harvey about the respective federal hurricane relief funding. Imagine being a flood victim without shelter, belongings, food, a job, flood insurance, and possibly the loss of your vehicles, and to have children to provide for, and have to listen to that crud going on between the Congress members, while you wait it out hoping for help. So ridiculous.

I believe that was the year. It was for one whole week, to help clear the streets over there in that city from the huge mess that was caused by the hurricane, or maybe it was hurricanes, as there were more than one of them during 2004. So many hurricanes, I get confused which ones, I sat through alone. The city crew took a whole bunch of chain saws and other equipment with them, and had to work non-stop cutting huge oak trees, and I mean massive oaks into pieces, and then used the front end loader, and pushed the tree debris off to the sides of the streets, just to clear the way, and left the rest for them to do. He said it was the biggest mess ever, and he carried on about the size of the giant oaks, and how big they were around, and how many chain saw blades they went through. Each member of the city crew got a nice plaque of appreciation presented to them, as well as got paid, and got their meals paid for also. My husband’s plaque is packed away somewhere here at our house. Cities should help out one another in disasters like hurricanes.

Tom Varndell hatrick vs Harlequins

first_imgSunday Jan 6, 2008 Tom Varndell hatrick vs Harlequins Leicester pummelled Harlequins 42-13 on Sunday in a game that saw the Tigers burying the home side, aided by the ‘Quins poor defence and scrappy passing. Tom Varndell scored a hatrick and Tom Croft finished off two crackers.Varndell’s first try was a beauty. Andy Goode, going left pulled off a ‘banana kick’ par excellence, with the speedster Varndell chasing and easily catching to go over for the try.For years we’ve seen Carlos Spencer (the creator of the unpredictable banana kick) putting Doug Howlett through for tries like this, for both the Auckland Blues and the All Blacks. Spencer perfected it, and with a speedster running the correct line, it’s very difficult to defend against.Andy Goode is another that seems to have perfected it, and justifiably so. Talented flyhalf, incredibly fast wing – ‘Lets give it a go’.Nice to see Tom Varndell making good on all his promise. I think we’ll be seeing a lot more of him this season. UPDATE: After many requests, I’ve added the Varndell Hatrick here instead of just the one try. Enjoy.

Chair and director of self-regulatory fundraising scheme appointed

first_imgHis model of self-regulation for the direct marketing industry will be used for the fundraising industry. DMA members are required to meet the best practice ./guidance identified by the DMA’s Code of Practice. Compliance with this is then monitored by the Direct Marketing Authority, also set up by Lloyd as an independent body.Lloyd also served from 1997-2003 as Chairman of Trust UK, the code owning body for self-regulation of the internet in the UK, initiated by the DMA and Consumers Association with the support of Government. Jon Scourse has 13 years’ fundraising and marketing experience at Director level including at Seafarers UK, the Air Ambulance Foundation, and Guide Dogs. He chaired the Working Party that was responsible for establishing the Code of Fundraising Practice ‘Outdoor Fundraising in the UK’, majoring on challenge events.Colin Lloyd, Chair of Self-Regulation, said: “Having established self-regulation across both the direct marketing and internet industries, I am looking forward to putting this experience to good use within the voluntary sector. A unified self-regulatory scheme for fundraising organisations is a vital move forward for charities and a platform from which the sector can raise standards and improve public trust and confidence.”According to the Institute of Fundraising the next steps are to “develop the name and brand”, establish a formal structure for the self-regulatory body and appoint the Board, and produce information packs and resources for charities.Charities will be approached to sign up to the scheme in June and July with a public launch scheduled for October 2006.The Institute was last year awarded £840,625 from the Home Office and Scottish Executive as first year funding for the initiation of a UK-wide self-regulatory scheme for fundraising.The Institute points out that self-regulation will be independent of it, although it and its members will continue to develop the best practice standards – the Codes of Fundraising Practice – that the scheme is based upon.  12 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Recruitment / people Chair and director of self-regulatory fundraising scheme appointed Colin Lloyd and Jon Scourse have been appointed by the Institute of Fundraising as Chair and Director respectively of the new self-regulatory scheme for fundraising.

Researching massive growth in giving.center_img Currently, alternative payment options include:• Credit card / debit card• Direct Debit (for regular or one-off payments)• Internet payment / bank transfer• Smartcard (similar to Oyster card) swipe technology.Scott Gray, Rapidata’s Managing Director, said: “Cheques have been around for 350 years, but their use has been in decline for many years now and it is no surprise that they will be gone in little over eight years.“While this may seem alarming to many charities who currently receive a significant number of cheque donations, a lot can happen in eight years and the Payments Council has committed to review the decision in 2016, ensuring that suitable payment alternatives are available.”He pointed out that eight years ago, the public weren’t used to using smartcards and payment by mobile phone, so systems and the public’s acceptance do change.According to the Cheque & Credit Clearing Company, in 2008 cheques were used to pay £1.4 billion compared to £8.32 billion by debit card and £2.05 billion by credit card. Automated payments accounted for £6.01 billion too.Gray argued that “this move is a positive opportunity to engage with supporters and convert them to more cost-effective means such as Direct Debit or Credit Card”.Rapidata is informing all its clients about the change, advising them to get ready for the changeover from cheques to alternative payment mechanisms. The Payments Council has outlined within its report the importance of supporting third sector groups, amongst other key stakeholders in preparing for this change.www.rapidataservices.comPhoto: The Daily Mail objects to the end of cheques (front page on 17 December 2009).
