Enter Your Email Address There’s a ‘double agent’ hiding in the FTSE… we recommend you buy it! Rupert Hargreaves owns shares in Diageo and ITV. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Diageo, ITV, and Lloyds Banking Group. 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. How should I invest £5k right now? There are plenty of UK shares that look attractive in the current market. The problem is, I’m not sure all are suitable investments. Take the cinema operator Cineworld, for example. Shares in this business look cheap compared to history, but with all of the group’s theatres closed, its outlook is highly uncertain. Investors can only guess what the future holds for the business. In my opinion, that’s no better than gambling. 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…So, with that in mind, I’d stick with high-quality blue-chip stocks — companies like Diageo. UK shares to buy today Shares in this global drinks giant have suffered this year. The stock slumped at the beginning of the pandemic after the firm warned that the closure of bars would hit sales around the world.However, in the long term, I’m optimistic about this group’s prospects. While the pandemic might have dented demand for products such as Guinness in 2020, I reckon 10 years from now customers will still be consuming the beverage. That leads me to conclude that, as a long-term investment, Diageo might is worth snapping up. Other UK shares I’d buy today include banking groups Lloyds and Natwest. I think these are two well-run and well-financed institutions. Even though both banks have reported large loan losses as a result of the pandemic, neither has come close to collapse. In fact, as Natwest recently said, the organisation has too much capital. At the end of its most recent financial period, the lender reported a capital ratio of more than 18%. That’s more than double its required minimum. I’d buy these stocks as a play on the UK economic recovery. When the recovery starts to gain traction, I think shares in Lloyds and Natwest could rise substantially as investor sentiment improves and they’re allowed to re-start dividend payouts. Value and income Two other UK shares I’d buy with £5k are broadcaster ITV and insurer Legal & General.According to my research, ITV should benefit from an improving television advertising market in 2021. This should lead to improved cash generation for the group. However, despite this improving outlook, the stock remains significantly below the level at which it began the year. Meanwhile, shares in Legal and General have risen steadily in recent months. The firm’s commitment to its dividend and steady earnings growth have boosted investors’ confidence towards the enterprise. I’m interested in the stock for its income. The group has an excellent track record of returning cash to investors. Today, the stock yields around 6.5%, which looks highly attractive in the current interest rate environment. When owned as part of a basket of UK shares, I think this financial services giant will provide a steady income for my portfolio. So, those are the stocks I’d buy with £5k today. These five investments offer a combination of value, growth and income, which I believe should yield an attractive investment return in the long run.

There was fun to be had for guests of all ages with life-sized board games, face painting from Artistic LA, story time and music with Books and Cookies LA’s Chudney Ross, Bubblemania’s giant bubblemaking, and the Flash Life Photo Booth to capture memories of the evening.Guests also had the opportunity to tour the campus and learn more about the programs which support foster youth who live there, including Foster Care and Adoption Services, Shelter Care and out-of-home care for boys with severe challenges that prevent them from living safely at home. Many of the youth who come to El Nido have suffered from trauma, abuse or neglect in the past. They live in cottages on the 5-acre campus, where relatives, case workers, and clinicians work in partnership to reunite them with family. Hathaway-Sycamores is dedicated to supporting and guiding these children towards more promising futures.Proceeds from the event will be used to enhance the living environment for the 50 foster youth residing on the campus.

Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority announced Friday that its service lines will continue to operate and it has had no reported cases of coronavirus originating from its bus or train services or from its nearly 11,000 employees.“We have no plans to shut down,” Metro CEO Phillip Washington said. “We are a lifeline for this county.”However, transportation officials continue to urge people to travel only to obtain essentials. Metro also noted that starting Friday night, final train departures from originating stations on each line will be at midnight.Metro’s service levels have been reduced 15% to 20% and it is running a “hybrid service” similar to what the agency runs on weekends, Washington said. Officials said more information on the schedule changes would be published soon.About 40% of Metro’s riders are using its services at this time, and Washington said Metro is working with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as county health officials to operate under current health guidelines.Metro officials said they will remain “flexible” during the outbreak to provide service for essential travel.Washington acknowledged that as the county’s residents stay at home, there has been significant revenue loss that will need to be recouped.“We do have multiple sources of funding, and yes, that funding is declining, and we will make adjustments as appropriate,” he said “With the revenue loss, we will go as long as we can. We do need federal assistance. We do need state assistance.”Washington said he does not anticipate delays for major construction projects that are planned for the future and numerous projects are still ongoing. Management teams have been meeting with Metro officials daily, he said.“Our focus right now is to make sure that our riders and our employees are safe,” Washington said. “Our operators have been fantastic. Very few of them have called in sick, and they are really on the front lines. We do not see at this time a shortage of operators.”Metro officials said they will install more hand sanitizer dispensers at hubs for riders, and they are looking at how install sanitizer dispensers on vehicles.Employees who may be vulnerable to the disease are able to stay home. Metro officials said they are still waiting on testing kits, and have instructed employees to practice social distancing.Telecommuting is already been started among some Metro employees. Washington said Metro has “tried to create a balance” to controlling the coronavirus situation and is allowing employees to stay home, especially if they are tending to their children or sick family members.Metro buses and trains are being cleaned once a day at least, with a focus on cleaning “touch points” such as handrails and elevator buttons that passengers and employees use.Washignton said he is not recommending the transit system make travel fares free at this time.

Born and raised in Texas, Baer now works as the online editor for DS News. CoreLogic Homeownership Millennials Renters Single-Family Rentals 2016-08-29 Kendall Baer It has been discussed recently that homeownership has been slowing down, particularly among millennials. While this has taken place, rental household formation has been increasing, with millennials making up a large share of this growing population. A new analysis from CoreLogic has revealed that 60 percent of rental housing applicants applying from 2011-2015 were millennials.With this in mind, CoreLogic notes that student loan debt has become a growing burden nationwide, especially among millennials. The aggregated outstanding student loan debt in the U.S. has more than tripled over the past decade, increasing from $380 billion in 2004 to $1.3 trillion in 2015, according to CoreLogic. This is the second-highest level of consumer debt only behind mortgages.The portion of millennial renters age 20-34 who had student loans has increased every year but one since 2008, according to CoreLogic. This is a reported 21 percent increase from 2008, when is stood at 38 percent, to 2015, when it stood at 48 percent. CoreLogic states that, not surprisingly, millennials have the highest percentage of student loan debt compared with older age groups. In considering the declining homeownership rate as well as the increasing rental market, CoreLogic says that the growth of student loan debt is likely an important factor preventing millennials from saving for a down payment to buy a home therefore attributing to their rental status continuing for a longer period of time.For millennials applying for rental properties, CoreLogic data shows that the average student loan balance reached $31,900 in 2015 for age group 20-34. This is a 41.8 percent increase compared with the average balance of $22,500 in 2008. At the same time, the median student loan balance for the same age group increased 53.7 percent to $18,600 in 2015 from $12,100 in 2008.Additionally, CoreLogic reports that The Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard University published the 2013 student loan balance of U.S. households. The average balance and median balance of renter households for age group 20-39 was $28,173 and $16,000, respectively. CoreLogic data shows the average student loan balance in 2013 for rent applicants in the same age group was $30,263 and the median balance was $16,400.

Justice PV Kunhikrishnan observed thus while recalling a bail order on the ground that the defacto complainant was not heard and his application for impleadment is pending at the time of disposal of the bail application. The defacto complainant had filed an application seeking recall of the order, contending that even though an application was filed by him in the above bail application for impleading, without showing his name in the cause list, the bail application was posted for hearing before the court and the bail application was allowed. The court referred to some earlier judgments [Robin v. State of Kerala and another [2018 KHC 158] Pushpangathan v. State of Kerala [2015(3) KLT 105]] which discusses the difference between recall, review and/or alteration. It noted that when an order is recalled, the whole thing is abrogated and the parties are relegated to the original position i.e., to the stage anterior to passing any judgment or final order in the matter. The Court said: “In the light of the above judgments, it is clear that an order passed by this Court in criminal jurisdiction can be recalled by invoking the powers under Section 482 Cr.P.C, if legal grounds are properly established by the party. It is also clear that, if an order is passed without hearing the party, during the hearing process, not due to his fault, it amounts to violation of principles of natural justice. In such circumstances also this Court can recall the order.” Difference Between Recall and Cancellation Of Bail Order The Court also observed that recalling an order will not amount to cancellation of the bail order. “Cancellation of a bail order is possible only after hearing the counsel and hearing the case on merit. But for recalling the order passed under Section 438 Cr.P.C, there is no consideration of the case on merit. This Court is recalling this order, because the petitioner/defacto complainant was not heard and his application for impleadment is pending at the time of disposal of the bail application. In such circumstances, recalling an order will not amounts to cancellation of the bail order. A bail order passed by this Court cannot be cancelled under Section 482 Cr.P.C. There are provisions under Criminal Procedure Code to cancel a bail order. In this case, this Court is exercising the jurisdiction under Section 482 Cr.P.C to recall the order passed under Section 438 Cr.P.C for the simple reason that, the affected party is not heard.” “Alteration or review of an order granted under Section 438 Cr.P.C is not possible in the light of Section 362 Cr.P.C. But recalling an order passed under Section 438 Cr.P.C is possible, if the order is happened to be passed without hearing a necessary party. When an order is recalled, the whole thing is abrogated and the parties are relegated to the original position i.e., to the stage anterior to passing any judgment or final order in the matter. Exercise undertaken in a review/alteration is to closely examine the order to be reviewed so as to find out any illegality or impropriety in it. For doing so, existence of the order or judgment must be recognised. When a judgment or final order is recalled for valid reasons, the resultant legal effect is that, the order itself is abrogated and the parties will be relegated to a position that existed at the commencement of the proceedings. Therefore, the “order recalling a bail order” is entirely different from “an order of cancellation of bail”. This Court cannot cancel the bail order under Section 482 Cr.P.C. This Court can entertain an application under Section 482 Cr.P.C to cancel an order passed under Section 438 Cr.P.C by a Sessions Court. In such situation, this Court will definitely will look in to the correctness of the order on merit. Such an exercise cannot be done, when the order passed under Section 438 Cr.P.C, is by this Court itself.” Click here to Read/Download OrderRead Order Next Story

Residents were found to have restricted rights to their own property and control of their finances following two inspections earlier this year.The James Connolly Memorial Residential Unit in Carndonagh was visited by inspectors in June and August.A report published this week by the health watchdog also criticised the institutional setting of the home and the serious state of disrepair of some parts of the building.The Inspector found that residents’ rights to their own property was restricted.Residents had inadequate control over their finances and were only permitted to have €25 on their person.If residents needed more money to buy something they had to put in a request to management.In response, management said all the residents required assistance to manage their personal finances and have HSE-held accounts.It said financial practices were reviewed and each resident now had access to €50 for daily expenditure.The unit was described by the inspector as a congregated, or institutional, setting for 16 adults with disabilities.Parts of the premises were found to be in a state disrepair, including the dining room ceiling which leaked in bad weather and staff used buckets to ensure that the floor did not flood.A review of a number of personal resident plans showed community-based outings were “significantly restricted”.The second inspection found some improvement but continued non-compliance in the areas of governance, risk management, resourcing, staffing and social care.

KRQE(THOREAU, N.M.) — At least four people have been killed and others are seriously injured after a Greyhound bus crashed into a tractor trailer on a highway in New Mexico Thursday afternoon, police said.The number of dead is expected to rise, officials said.At least 42 people were transported to nearby hospitals, with another six being treated at the scene, authorities said. “There are multiple serious injuries and passengers transported. Officers and EMS are actively working and assessing the scene, New Mexico State Police said.More than 33 patients have been transported to local area hospitals with injuries, some are said to be in critical condition, officials said.The NTSB is launching a go-team to investigate the crash, the agency told ABC News.Christopher Jones said he got to the accident site just after the crash.“I saw the tractor trailer flipped upside down the driver of the tractor trailer was on the shoulder just sitting there. So I grabbed my medical kit and grabbed a bunch of my gloves and got out there and just started helping people and it was a pretty rough site,” Jones told ABC News.The driver of the tractor trailer told jones that his front tire popped off the vehicle, causing it to veer into oncoming traffic where it struck the bus.“I was talking to the driver of the tractor trailer and when I flagged what happened and talked to the driver, he said his front drive tire popped on him and so it took him into the medium onto oncoming traffic right into the Greyhound upon impact, which I’m not too sure of the details. But I am guessing it was a head on collision,” Jones said.Jones, who said he used to be a volunteer firefighter and EMT, described the scene as “one of the hardest” he’s ever had to see.There were 49 passengers aboard Greyhound bus #1333, according to a statement from Greyhound. The bus was headed from Albuquerque to Phoenix.“The total number of injuries has not been determined at this time. The cause of the incident has not yet been determined. We are fully cooperating with local authorities and will also complete an investigation of our own. Please contact the New Mexico State Police Department for any further details,” Greyhound said.This is a breaking story, please check back for updatesCopyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
