All-in to highlight diversity champions in new campaign

Tags: Online Gambling 6th January 2020 | By contenteditor Strategy The All-in Diversity Project, the gambling industry-backed initiative to drive greater diversity, equality and inclusivity in the sector, has announced that it will launch a major new campaign later this month.The #opendoors campaign, which will launch fully on January 27 ahead of ICE 2020, will highlight people who have opened career doors for others in the sector, with ‘champions’ thanked by those who benefited from their support.An ‘All-in’ badge will be available for ICE 2020 attendees to show their support for the initiative, while industry stakeholders have been invited to engage in the campaign by using the #opendoors hashtag.The All-in Diversity Project creates and provides knowledge bases, workplace tool-kits, training plans, learning exchanges and interactive events.“The idea behind #opendoors is simple,” says Kelly Kehn, the Project’s co-founder (pictured left). “If we really want to progress and be a more diverse and inclusive industry, we need to recognise that we did not get to where we are in our career without the help of someone along the way.“By thanking someone who helped you, you are also pledging that you are willing to hold the door open for someone else who might need it. When we recognise that we didn’t get here alone, we are also recognising some people do not benefit from that support because of assumptions, bias, etc and immediately become more conscious of our differences.”Last year, Women in Racing, an organisation committed to developing the profile of women in the sport of horse racing, signed up to the Project, joining the likes of Paddy Power Betfair, Caesars Entertainment, IGT and WMRecruit, which became the first independent recruitment agency to become a strategic partner of the not-for-profit initiative.Project co-founder Christina Thakor-Rankin (pictured right) added: “Aside of the opportunity to celebrate those who champion others, we’re hoping that the association of a visual tag linked to some of the most successful individuals and companies in the industry says it all – diversity works.”A dedicated Facebook group has been set up to help industry members to share their stories for the campaign.

Stock market crash: I’d buy these 2 FTSE 100 recovery stocks to get rich and retire early

first_img Harvey Jones 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. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Image source: Getty Images. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The stock market crash is throwing up FTSE 100 bargains everywhere you look. Despite the recovery, plenty of companies are still available at dramatically lower prices. I’m tempted by oil majors BP (LSE: BP) and Royal Dutch Shell (LSE: RDSB).I’ve picked out these two FTSE 100 stalwarts because they’ve endured two meltdowns. The coronavirus crash, and the oil price collapse. In both cases, the worst is over, for now. Despite this, both are way cheaper than at the start of the year.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…The BP share price has crashedThis makes now an appealing entry point for those looking to build a portfolio of FTSE 100 shares large enough to help them retire early.The BP share price started 2020 trading at around 480p. Today, you can buy it for 306p. That’s a thumping 35% drop. It’s the same story with the Royal Dutch Shell share price. It started the year trading at 2,258p. Today, it stands at 1,242p. That’s an even bigger drop, of 45%.Just because a FTSE 100 company’s share price has crashed, doesn’t automatically make it a bargain. At one point, crude producers were paying people to take their shipments. That was due to the crash in demand as economies went into lockdown, and the surge in supply as Russia and Saudi Arabia turned on the spigots to destroy US shale.Today, Brent trades at $35 a barrel. Coincidentally, that’s BP’s targeted break-even price for 2021, down from $56 in 2019, according to chief executive Bernard Looney.Analysts at Redburn recently put Shell’s breakeven point at a more demanding $65. I’m therefore not surprised the group was first to blink, by cutting its dividend for the first time since the war.The Royal Dutch Shell share price is cheaperFor me, BP has the edge on two fronts. Right now, the FTSE 100 giant yields a barnstorming 10.57%. That’s an astonishing income, especially when you consider all the dividend cuts elsewhere. You can take that tax free inside a Stocks and Shares ISA.BP stood by its dividend despite a 67% drop in first-quarter profits. Dividends are never guaranteed, but even if management halved the payout, the stock would still yield 5%. Shell looks cheaper, trading at 7.91 times earnings, against BP at 19.5 times. You have to take traditional FTSE 100 valuation metrics with a pinch of salt these days, but it’s a pointer.FTSE 100 shares will build your wealthThe big question to consider with both FTSE 100 oil majors is where oil goes next. Renewables will continue to get cheaper, squeezing oil. Both companies will want to expand in this area, while looking to drive down carbon emissions from other activities. This will cost.If you want to buy these two FTSE 100 oil stocks to fund your retirement, I would recommend doing it while they look relatively cheap. Like today.

2 FTSE 100 stocks I’d buy for my ISA in November for passive income

Enter Your Email Address Click here to get access to our presentation, and learn how to get the name of this ‘double agent’! With the Bank of England cutting interest rates down to just 0.1% earlier this year, cash simply isn’t making you money. When you add in the current rate of inflation, cash sitting in your current account is actually losing you money. The value of it is being eroded by inflation over time. For investors, we don’t just want to make enough interest to cover the impact of inflation. We actually want to use the funds to generate a positive cash flow, via passive income. Earning 4%-7% a year in passive income from our cash funds is possible, by investing in FTSE 100 stocks that pay out dividends.Northern utilityUnited Utilities Group (LSE: UU) provides water services to the North West of England. Headquartered in Warrington, the firm has a solid track record as a publicly listed firm for several decades. As utilities are not classified as a growth sector, UU uses a dividend as a tool to keep investors happy. At present, the dividend yield sits at 4.76%. 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…This appears to be a sustainable dividend, for investors to pick up passive income for the future. In the latest trading update last month, the business said second-half revenues are likely to be down around 5% from the first half of the year. An increase in household consumption is slightly outweighed by reduced business consumption. This is logical, but it’s evident that the business is not anticipating a large fall in revenue or profit as a result of Covid-19.As a result, I’d feel comfortable buying the stock for passive income into next year and beyond. With a yield of almost 5%, it’s high enough to give good returns, but not unsustainably high. Some stocks with a dividend yield above 10% could be under pressure of a dividend cut. For UU, around 5% is not a cause of concern for shareholders, I feel.Money managersSchroders (LSE: SDRC) is a large asset management company. It has an extended presence around the globe, with reported assets under management in 2019 of over £500bn. The share price was down as much as 36% earlier this year. It has rallied somewhat, but is still down on the year. This is one large factor that has bumped the dividend yield up to 6.2%.The dividend yield is nowhere near as high as similar firms in the industry such as M&G or Standard Life Aberdeen. When such yields start to creep to 10% or higher it usually starts sounding warning bells in my mind. So I’d be happy in picking up passive income via the Schroders dividend as a safer play.Half-year profits did dip by 10% as investors rushed out of funds, but the AUM figure has been recovering in recent months. Given that Schroders services various different segments from retail to institutional clients, the risk is well spread. Again, I feel that the dividend should be supported into 2021 and beyond unless we see another market crash similar to March.Passive income via an ISAThe two above stocks are good examples of how sustainable passive income can be found right now in the FTSE 100. I’d also make sure that I buy the stocks within an ISA to enable me to benefit from receiving the dividends gross of tax. That way, not only are we beating inflation, but also generating a positive cash flow! There’s a ‘double agent’ hiding in the FTSE… we recommend you buy it!

Pastor Morgan takes the reins as Ministerial Alliance President

Please enter your email address here Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Appoints five-person Executive BoardMorgan: “This is new territory for us. We want to do more and because of that we need better organization.”Darrell Morgan, Lead Pastor at The Word of Life Church in Apopka, has taken over as President of The Apopka Christian Ministerial Alliance (ACMA). He succeeds Hezekiah Bradford, who remains as The South Apopka Ministerial Alliance President.He explained his approach as wanting to make the Alliance a household name in Apopka.“As of this morning (Tuesday), I have taken the position as President,” Morgan said. “We’re going to have fellowship. We’re going to have devotionals. I want to have guest speakers. I want Apopka to know who we are. I want us to have a voice in this city.”Morgan also named a five-member Executive Board which includes himself, Vice President Jimmy Siberio (Lead Pastor of Oasis Church in Apopka), Treasurer Ronda Rieves (Executive Pastor at Apopka Calvary Church) and board members Doug Bankson (Lead Pastor at Victory World Outreach Church) and Bradford (Lead Pastor at St. Luke Full Gospel Baptist Church).In the past, the ACMA was a casual group of pastors who met once a month, had lunch, talked about issues that impacted Christianity and Apopka, but never attempted to formally organize. The Alliance’s one consistent project was The Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast.“(Apopka) Mayor (John) Land handed us this Prayer Breakfast on a silver platter,” said Morgan. “And it’s actually the biggest evangelical crusade in town at this time. I don’t want to lose it.”In addition to the Prayer Breakfast, the ACMA is partnered with the South Apopka Ministerial Alliance to produce The Apopka Family, Faith and Food Festival on January 7th. The additional responsibility of a Festival made it necessary to formally organize the ACMA.“This is new territory for us,” said Morgan. “We’ve always had a fellowship of pastors, but we’re getting more involved. Our vision is to bring more formality to the Alliance. There needs to be checks and balances. We want to do more and because of that we need better organization.”The Board agreed to apply for a 501c3 non-profit status, an independent bank account for the ACMA, and by-laws to be signed by each member.Morgan went on to describe his belief in what the ACMA should stand for, and why an alliance of pastors is vital.“If we truly want to minister to everyone in this city, then we need each other. If you think you don’t need people, you haven’t pastored long enough.” Please enter your comment!

Deputies pass amended broadcasting law, new challenge ahead

first_img Call for continuing transparency and dialogue in media law’s passage News December 12, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Deputies pass amended broadcasting law, new challenge ahead UruguayAmericas Follow the news on Uruguay Help by sharing this information UruguayAmericas “Pressure from big media must not endanger proposed media law” Organisation July 9, 2013 Find out more April 4, 2014 Find out morecenter_img RSF_en Receive email alerts December 24, 2014 Find out more News Reporters Without Borders welcomes the Chamber of Deputies’ approval of the proposed Broadcasting Communication Services Law (LSCA) by 50 votes to 35 on 10 December and reiterates its support for this law, which it regards as a broadcasting regulation model for the region.“The LSCA takes pains to guarantee that the concentration of broadcast media ownership is reduced and that frequencies are redistributed fairly, without any control on content and without pressure on the editorial policies of the public, commercial or community media concerned,” Reporters Without Borders said.“We urge Uruguay’s senators to approve this framework legislation without any changes when it comes before the Senate in March.”The version adopted on 10 December includes most of the changes that Reporters Without Borders, the Committee to Protect Journalists and Human Rights Watch proposed during a joint visit to Montevideo in October (see photo).One of the main changes concerned the initial draft’s ban on racist, discriminatory and hateful content. For the sake of freedom of information, this point is clarified by a new formulation banning content “praising” or “explicitly inciting” violence against a category of individuals or segment of the population on the grounds of its origin, gender, sexual orientation, age and so on.The new version adds: “Under no circumstances should these provisions be interpreted as prohibiting information about the facts concerned or analysis or discussion of these issues, especially as part of educational, informative or journalistic programmes.”In the same way, clauses on the protection of children and the broadcasting of certain kinds of violent content have been revised in order not to obstruct the provision of information of public interest. When appropriate, the public will be given a prior warning.The three NGOs proposed limiting the number of cadenas – official announcements that must the carried by all the broadcast media – to eight a year. This limitation was accepted by the president’s office but was not included in the final version adopted by the deputies.Finally, as regards a fair distribution of government advertising, worth 85 million dollars a year, the Chamber of Deputies decided that this should be addressed in a parallel law. Without taking a position on the method chosen, Reporters Without Borders urges them to pass effective legislation on this crucial issue.Council pending Who will enforce the LSCA? The bill initially provided for the creation of an independent Broadcasting Communication Council (CCA) to do this. But Uruguay’s constitution forbids the creation of a new public office in the last year before national elections (presidential and parliamentary), and the first round of the next elections are due on 26 October 2014.The ruling, left-wing Frente Amplio’s deputies finally decided to assign this duty to the Communications Services Regulatory Unit (URSEC), a technical entity reporting to the executive, although this was against the latter’s wishes.A question remains: if the URSEC is not up to the task of enforcing the LSCA, will this law have to wait until after the elections to take effect? Which independent body will be responsible for the new regulation? The Senate should decide this when the LSCA is submitted for its approval. to go further News News Reporters Without Borders welcomes the adoption of the Broadcasting Communication Services Law last_img read more

Mehdi Karoubi hospitalized for sixth time in six years of house arrest

He was hospitalized two days ago in Tehran after a heart attack. Karoubi’s family said emergency medical services and ministry of intelligence doctors gave permission for him to be rushed to hospital on 24 July after examining him at his home.During his six years under house arrest, Karoubi, 79, has been hospitalized six times because of heart problems and other ailments linked to the conditions in which he is being held and his inability to leave his home.The ministry of intelligence has turned part of his house into a prison with 12 guards, who prevent family members from visiting him.Karoubi’s son, Taghi Karoubi, told RSF: “President Hassan Rouhani took advantage of his credibility and popularity with the Green Movement’s supporters during his two elections but has done nothing to get him released. Rouhani could at least ‘legalize’ the conditions of his house arrest and remove the intelligence ministry officers from his home. But he has done nothing.”Reza Moini, the head of RSF’s Iran/Afghanistan desk, said: “The Rouhani government must terminate this situation and keep its promise to the millions of Iranians who have been calling for an end to the house arrest of Mehdi Karoubi, Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mousavi’s wife.“Rouhani should not forget that it was his undertakings to defend free speech and media freedom and to release political prisoners that persuaded Iranian progressives, especially young people and women, to vote massively for him.”Karoubi, the owner of the now closed newspaper Etemad Melli, Mir Hossien Mousavi, the owner of the now closed newspaper Kalameh Sabaz, and Mousavi’s wife, the writer Zahra Rahnavard, have been illegally subjected to house arrests and deprived of all their rights since February 2011.These leaders of the protests against President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s disputed reelection in June 2009 are regarded by the regime as “leaders of sedition.”RSF points out that the arbitrary detention of Karoubi, Mousavi and Rahnavard has no legal basis under either Iranian law or international standards. As they are denied the right to a fair trial, their detention is a flagrant violation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.Iran is ranked 165th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.

Latest Look at Foreclosure Trends

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / Latest Look at Foreclosure Trends Latest Look at Foreclosure Trends Related Articles Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Across the country, just 11,281 residential properties were in foreclosure in February, according to property data researchers at ATTOM Data Solutions, who just released the February 2021 U.S. Foreclosure Market Report. The number is up 16% from a month ago but down 77% from last year.”Extensions to the Federal Government’s foreclosure moratorium and CARES Act mortgage forbearance program continue to keep foreclosure activity historically low,” said Rick Sharga, EVP of RealtyTrac, an ATTOM Data Solutions company. “These government actions, and the efforts of lenders and mortgage servicing companies, have helped millions of homeowners avoid foreclosure during a year-long global pandemic and a recession that resulted in 22 million lost jobs.”The numbers show that one in every 12,182 U.S. housing units had a foreclosure filing in February 2021.  Utah (one in 3883), Delaware (one in 5219), Florida (one in 6,232), Illinois (one in 6336), and Louisiana (one in every 7,923 housing units) topped the list of states with the highest foreclosure rates.Foreclosure starts increased in 29 states in February. That’s up 15% from last month but down 78% from the previous year.”The government’s moratorium bans foreclosures on government-backed loans for homeowners, and borrowers in the forbearance program are also protected from foreclosure actions,” Sharga noted. “But loans on commercial properties, investment properties, and properties that are vacant and abandoned do not always have the same protections. This could be why we’re seeing a slight increase in foreclosure starts despite the government programs.”Lenders repossessed 1,545 U.S. properties through completed foreclosures (REOs) in February, an 8% increase from last month but still down 85% from last year.Counter to the national trend, those states that saw a decline in completed foreclosures from last month, included Indiana, Colorado, South Dakota, Utah, and Alabama.For its monthly report, which can be found in full at attom.com, ATTOM collects data from more than 3,000 counties nationwide, and those counties account for more than 99% of the U.S. population.
