While past performance should never guide future potential, I think the stock still looks cheap despite this gain.The TRMR share price outlook Tremor International is a global leader in advertising technologies. Its primary focus is video advertising and it works with some of the world’s largest publishers, brands and advertisers. 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…Over the past 12 months, demand for online advertising has boomed, and Tremor has reaped the benefits. In its latest trading update, the firm announced that revenues in its fiscal first-quarter would range $55m-$60m. That is up from $32.1m a year earlier. Programmatic net advertising revenues are expected to grow 84-95% year-on-year. With its top line set to nearly double in the first quarter, management has forecast underlying earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) of $25m-$28m for the period, up from last year’s figure of $0.5m.I think these figures illustrate clearly why the TRMR share price has performed so well over the past year. I also think the group’s growth is only just getting started. Booming marketAccording to estimates, the global online advertising market is projected to grow at a compound annual rate of 21% to nearly $1trn by 2025. The company’s current revenue figures suggest turnover could total $240m for 2021. This implies the group has only a minuscule share of the global online advertising market. With this being the case, I think it could have the potential to double, or even triple, its market share over the next few years. Still, I think it’s unrealistic to claim that Tremor has the potential to double its revenues every year going forward. The company could achieve this goal, but it’s improbable.Instead, I think it’s more reasonable to say the business’s revenues will grow at least in line with the market. That implies annual revenue growth of around 21%.Of course, this is just a projection. Tremor may outperform or underperform these figures. There’s no way of telling.Large risksThe most considerable risk the company faces is competition from larger American rivals. Advertising market giants such as Facebook could quickly overwhelm the business if it wanted to grab its share of a particular market. This is a challenge management is always going to have to deal with, so that’s something I’ll be keeping an eye on going forward.Another risk the company may have to deal with includes potential regulations on the gathering and use of data, which many online advertising businesses rely on to serve ads to the correct customers.Nevertheless, despite these significant risks, based on Tremor’s existing size and the potential for growth over the next few years, I believe its share price looks cheap at current levels. Therefore, I would buy the stock for my portfolio today as a long-term growth investment.

Win a Free Copy of Ben Cohen’s New Autobiography

first_imgTuesday Aug 25, 2015 Win a Free Copy of Ben Cohen’s New Autobiography Prize Details: This is an inspirational story of passion and pain; of the highs of achieving your goals, and the grief of losing something you can never get back.Most people didn’t know that Ben is clinically deaf. His sixth sense for the game got him through on the pitch, but off it his poor hearing was often taken for arrogance. Fast and powerful on the wing, he was soon the best in the world in his position and a cornerstone of the England team, culminating in the legendary World Cup win in Sydney in 2003.Then, when Ben was 20, his father intervened in a fight in the nightclub where he worked. He was viciously beaten and one month later he died in hospital. Ben was doing an England press conference at the time, and it was down to coach Clive Woodward to deliver the devastating news. But the ordeal was far from over. The inquest lasted five months before the funeral could be held, and it was a year before the family were in court, facing Peter’s assailants.Carry Me Home is the compelling and deeply personal autobiography of a rugby hero.Draw Details: A winner will be randomly chosen by Rugbydump from the emails entered.

Had to have introverted facades, to maintain the privacy of their adjacent plot, but at the same time generous views towards all its carefully landscaped perimeter. Save this picture!© José Hevia Four triangular porches solved the paradoxical demand due to the “inverted funnel effect” of their walls, a shape able to simultaneously offer wide views from the inside and massive facades from the outside. The solution “dislocated” the geometry of the whole plan and generated very rich visual relations in between the house and the garden. Save this picture!© José HeviaWhen the big sliding doors are open, hided into the walls, the four triangular outdoor areas connect each other and the interior becomes one only great porch, a big shadow in between four intimate “pavilions” (the three bedrooms and the sitting room) with the constant presence of the changing daylight and the garden views.

GAIN to help charities secure Gift Aid on auctions

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 14 June 2005 | News Charities who wish GAIN to recover Gift Aid on auctions sign a contract with GAIN appointing it as the Gift Aid co-ordinator for the fundraising event. The company then works with the charity’s event organisers to ensure that the event is managed and run in a manner which ensures that the maximum Gift Aid is collected on the auction. Their services include the provision of the Gift Aid declaration in the correct format, recording and collection of this completed document from the supporters, liaison with the auctioneer/MC to ensure that the auction is conducted according to Inland Revenue requirements and that appropriate announcements are made to the bidders, and provision of a statement of account or invoice (Auction Sale Confirmation) to the bidder detailing his/her bid.GAIN acts as the nominee for processing the Gift Aid claim, so it will handle the submission and acceptance of the R68 and R68(2000) forms.The company only charges on a success or no-win no-fee basis: where it has secured Gift Aid income it charges 25% of the additional Gift Aid recovered, which equates to 5.5% of the total gross donation. There is also a fixed setup charge of £150.00, which is independent of the Gift Aid recovered. Normally the rules of Gift Aid do not allow income from auctions to qualify, but Gift Aid recovery specialists GAIN have established an Inland Revenue-approved method of claiming Gift Aid on auctions.GAIN, the Gift Aid Recovery and Consultancy arm of ChariTax Limited, has negotiated a special arrangement with Inland Revenue whereby a charity can benefit from Gift Aid at an auction. Of course, for Inland Revenue to allow this payment they need to be sure that the operation stays within the rules of Gift Aid. So GAIN is promoting its services to help charities achieve this.“We can guarantee complete compliance with the procedures and regulations as agreed with Inland Revenue as well as maintaining a complete record of all stages of the transaction” said GAIN’s Barry Gower. “Because of our relationship with Inland Revenue we have been able to structure this arrangement to achieve the dual objectives of compliance with Inland Revenue requirements and removal of hassle for the donors.” Advertisement Tagged with: Eventscenter_img GAIN to help charities secure Gift Aid on auctions  22 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Six unelected men deliver blow to Civil Rights

first_img35,000 marched on Washington D.C., in April 1978 to ‘Beat Back Bakke,’ an attack on affirmative action.The unelected U.S. Supreme Court has delivered a sharp blow to rights won through mass struggles against racism.In a six-to-two decision on the Schuette vs. BAMN case on April 22, the high court upheld a Michigan referendum about a constitutional amendment that placed a ban on affirmative action. The so-called “Michigan Civil Rights Initiative” of 2006 actually reversed the legal and political principles that had guided the movement for equality from the 1950s through the 1970s. The ruling will also have an impact on seven other states, which have similar bans.The court decided that it possessed no jurisdiction to overturn the Michigan vote, which banned race and the history of national discrimination as factors in admissions to higher educational institutions. The state’s vote and other initiatives have resulted in drastic declines in the number of African-American and Latino/a students at universities and colleges around the state and the country.Not only did the high court’s majority uphold Michigan’s anti-affirmative-action vote, it rejected a federal appeals court decision that said the adoption of such a state law violates the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. That amendment ostensibly guaranteed equal protection under the law.Justice Anthony Kennedy, often considered the “swing vote,” summed up the conservative majority view, which said that such considerations of racism and past discrimination were not needed and were unconstitutional.Kennedy said, “In a society in which those lines are becoming more blurred, the attempt to define race-based categories also raises serious questions of its own. Government action that classifies individuals on the basis of race is inherently suspect and carries the danger of perpetuating the very racial divisions the polity seeks to transcend.” (, April 22)But Justice Sonia Sotomayor, the only Puerto Rican jurist, gave a dissenting opinion that abhorred the decision. Sotomayor recognized that her career path had been directly related to the affirmative action programs that helped her, a Latina from the Bronx, get into Princeton University and Yale Law School.Sotomayor stressed that the majority’s refusal “to accept the stark reality that race matters is regrettable. We ought not to sit back and wish away, rather than confront the racial inequality that exists in our society.”Deception and racism in Michigan voteThe anti-affirmative-action referendum’s placement on the Michigan ballot had been based on massive deception through a well-financed political ­campaign.A petition campaign was launched in 2006 to place the initiative on the ballot; canvassers were paid for collecting signatures. Many were instructed to falsely say that this initiative would advance equal opportunity by changing the Michigan state constitution to bar discrimination.But opponents launched a challenge to the ballot initiative. They claimed it was not the intent of most petition signers to ban affirmative action. However, the state elections commission and the courts upheld the initiative, which passed during the 2006 statewide elections.Bourgeois law still does not recognize the historic national oppression of African Americans, Latinos/as, Asians and Native peoples. The prevailing view in the capitalist media is the racist argument that any advancement made by oppressed nations constitutes “reverse discrimination” against the dominant oppressor nation.This Supreme Court decision is part of an effort to reverse the major political and social gains of the Civil Rights, Black Power and women’s movements that emerged after World War II. In 1954, the historic Brown v. Topeka decision of the Supreme Court had ruled that “separate but equal” facilities for students in public education were inherently unconstitutional.The Brown v. Topeka ruling reversed the Plessy v. Ferguson case of 1896 — which during the era of Jim Crow and lynching had provided a legal rationale for “second-class citizenship” for African Americans. Through a series of political and legal campaigns led by the NAACP Legal Defense Fund and others, institutional discrimination was eventually outlawed in both higher education and from kindergarden through 12th grade.Struggle won affirmative actionNonetheless, it took a mass Civil Rights and Black Power movement — beginning in 1955 and continuing through the early 1970s — to bring real affirmative action programs into existence.With the advent of urban rebellions from 1963 to 1970, the impetus for implementing such policies was accelerated.The administration of Lyndon Johnson, responding to the militancy of the African-American struggle and seeking peace at home in order to wage war in Southeast Asia, shepherded the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 through the U.S. Congress.It was Johnson who noted in a commencement address at Howard University in 1965 that simply passing laws would not be enough to make a dent in historical institutional discrimination and used the term “affirmative action.” Later, the right wing used the term to push back against the changing social character of race relations in the United States, a country built on the genocide of Indigenous Americans, enslavement of Africans and colonization of large sections of the Mexican population in the Southwest.Johnson said, “You do not take a person who, for years, has been hobbled by chains and liberate him, bring him up to the starting line of a race and then say you are free to compete with all the others, and still just believe that you have been completely fair.”In September 1965, Johnson issued Executive Order 11246 to enforce a policy of nondiscrimination. In 1967, the order was amended to bar discrimination against women in hiring.Earlier, the Kennedy administration had issued Executive Order 10925, mandating that federal contractors not only end discrimination but take “affirmative action to ensure” compliance. It also mandated penalties for noncompliance with anti-discriminatory policies.However, in the late 1970s, the reactionary Bakke case reached the Supreme Court. It challenged quotas and timetables intended to implement nondiscriminatory policies. In 1978, the high court’s ruling on Bakke lessened the impact of previous executive orders and legislation that had mandated nondiscriminatory policies.Anti-affirmative-action campaigns in California, Texas and Florida, as well as Michigan, have largely eliminated the institutional commitment to nondiscrimination. Demonstrations by African-American students at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor are calling for the elite institution to establish programs to recruit more people from this oppressed community.What is needed to make these demands a political force is to initiate a national movement against institutional racism that would encompass the declining social status of the nationally oppressed, who are still suffering from disproportionate rates of unemployment and poverty.The gains of the 20th century were the result of the mass struggles of African Americans, Latinos/as, other oppressed peoples and their allies. It will again require the mobilization and organization of the masses of people in a militant program of resistance and fightback to reverse these setbacks.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Iraqi Governing Council urged to lift ban on Al-Arabiya

first_img February 15, 2021 Find out more November 24, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Iraqi Governing Council urged to lift ban on Al-Arabiya IraqMiddle East – North Africa Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders called on the Iraqi Governing Council to reverse its decision today to ban the Dubai-based satellite TV news channel Al-Arabiya from operating in Iraq until it gives a written undertaking not to encourage terrorism. The organisation also condemned the government’s use of police to close the station’s offices in the Baghdad district of Al-Mansur.The ban was imposed because Al-Arabiya on 16 November broadcast an audiotape in which a voice said to be that of Saddam Hussein was heard urging Iraqis to kill members of the US-installed transitional government.”The handling of the news is the sole responsibility of news editors,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard said. “Iraq’s new authorities should not try to get a news organisation to change its editorial line by using force – such methods belong to the past and are contrary to the promises of democracy made to the Iraqi people.”Ménard said a news organisation is not guilty of inciting murder when it broadcasts a message in which a person who is supposedly Saddam Hussein is heard calling for murder. “Instead of preventing journalists in the field from doing their work, the Iraqi Governing Council should address its objections to the TV network’s management and should get down to the job of setting up a body to regulate and monitor the news media, consisting of elected members of the new media,” Ménard added.Iraq’s interim government already banned Al-Arabiya and fellow Arabic satellite news channel Al-Jazeera from covering its official activities for two weeks after they broadcast audiotapes said to be of Saddam Hussein at the time of the murder of interim government member Akila al-Hashimi on 20 September.
