United chief may quit with £4m pay-out

first_img THE boss of former state-owned water group United Utilities may quit later this month with a golden goodbye payout worth more than £4m, it emerged yesterday.It is understood group chief executive Philip Green could announce his resignation from the water and waste services supplier in north-west England as early as November 24.Green is thought likely to receive stock and share options worth more than £4m should he resign. No-one from the company was yesterday available to comment.The company serves nearly 7m people, 3.2m households and business premises and more than 400 industrial and commercial enterprises.Green joined the company in 2005 with the task of returning it to a pure water and waste services company after the previous management had expanded it to include electricity and support services.The group has since sold most of its non-regulated operations and is expected to discontinue its “contract solutions” infrastructure management business.The announcement about Green’s departure may come in the company’s first half results on Wednesday, in which it is tipped to post pre-tax profits of about £173m, against £268m a year ago.Water regulator Ofwat forced United to cut its bills by four per cent at the start of April, one of the toughest initial reductions imposed on the listed water stocks, although Deutsche Bank expects growth thereafter as the company moves through the five year regulatory period.FAST FACTS | UNITED UTILITIESUnited Utilities has: 184 reservoirs; * over 42,000 km of water mains; * over 43,000 km of sewers; * 100 water treatment works. * 575 wastewater treatment works KCS-content Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼ Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’SportsnautTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family Proof whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen Heraldmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Rio Tinto declares Riversdale bid unconditional

first_img whatsapp Tags: NULL Rio Tinto is to go ahead with its A$3.9bn (£2.5bn) takeover offer for Riversdale Mining even if it ends up with a minority stake in the Africa-focused coal miner.The offer, announced in December, was originally conditional on at least 50 per cent acceptances, but so far Rio Tinto has secured only about 41 per cent.If it fails to reach the new threshold, Rio Tinto will pay Riversdale shareholders only A$16 a share.Rio Tinto is in talks with CSN to secure a majority stake in Riversdale in a last-ditch bid to save its takeover offer, its third major deal attempt since a badly timed $40bn takeover of Alcan in 2007.Rio has targeted Riversdale for a takeover because of its hard coking coal projects in Mozambique, which could eventually supply as much as one-tenth of the global market for the key steel-making ingredient.Rio Tinto said on Tuesday it was in talks with one of Riversdale’s two major shareholders – Tata Steel and CSN – without revealing which one.Rio Tinto’s lawyer said in a letter released to the Australian stock exchange that Rio “genuinely believes that an outcome of those discussions is likely to emerge during the course of this morning”.The letter was released by Riversdale.

FTSE 100 crash: I’d buy dividend stocks for a passive income today

Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 17th May, 2020 | More on: ^FTSE Enter Your Email Address Image source: Getty Images A whole range of FTSE 100 companies have cut their dividends recently. This may convince investors that generating a passive income from stocks is too risky.However, companies that have only reduced (rather than axed) their dividends, as well as defensive stocks, may still be worthy of consideration.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…These companies may offer a relatively attractive financial outlook, which could make their dividends affordable. Investors could also make the most of recent stock price falls to take advantage of undervalued securities.FTSE 100 stocks on offerEven after its recent rally, the FTSE 100 is still off 22% in 2020. This suggests that many of the index’s constituents offer a margin of safety.That being said, some companies in the index deserve a discount. The world is currently facing an unprecedented economic situation. Many businesses may not recover, and some dividends may never be restored to previous levels. Nevertheless, companies with defensive characteristics are less likely to be impacted by economic changes. For example, some of the FTSE 100’s most defensive businesses, such as British American Tobacco, Unilever and Reckitt Benckiser have reported steady trading so far this year.This could equate to an improved dividend performance this year and into the future. These companies’ income streams could continue to grow at a rate that is equal to, or even above, inflation over the long run.As a result, buying these defensive FTSE 100 stocks may mean that your passive income is more reliable than it would be in other investments. Many cyclical businesses, for example, may not be able to recover from the current slump. Passive income streamNow could be a great time to snap up these passive FTSE 100 income champions. In many cases, the recent stock market decline has hurt sentiment towards these businesses. That may mean they offer dividends in excess of historical averages. This suggests the stocks provide a wide margin of safety.The recent market decline may also offer the potential for capital growth over the long run. Indeed, when investor sentiment improves, defensive stocks may become more popular than the wider market. That could mean these companies produce attractive capital gains for investors.DiversificationUnfortunately, even defensive businesses can encounter problems. A company’s defensive status does not guarantee its income stream.As such, the best strategy for investors seeking a passive income stream could be to own a basket of defensive FTSE 100 stocks. By spreading your capital across multiple companies, it could increase the reliability of your passive income stream.If you concentrate on just one or two investments, you run the risk that one of these stocks may have to cut its dividend. That could damage your chances of achieving financial freedom over the long run. The best way to improve your chances of meeting this goal is to own a range of defensive FTSE 100 income investments.

UK plc debt is booming! A FTSE 100 dividend stock I’d buy as more dividend cuts loom

first_img 2020 has been a year to forget for dividend investors. And we are not even at the back end of summer yet! Record payouts were delivered for another year in 2019. But the coronavirus outbreak has smashed the chances of another all-time high this time around. Even the most robust dividend stocks have had to cut, cancel or suspend payouts in response to the crisis.Around half of FTSE 100 constituents have already taken the hatchet to dividends in anticipation of an economic storm. Even alumni like Royal Dutch Shell — a blue-chip that hadn’t cut shareholder rewards since World War 2 — have been forced into drastic action. A look at the deteriorating balance sheets of UK-quoted companies suggests that more trusted dividend stocks will be shaking up their payout policies too.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…UK debt balloonsAccording to a study by global asset management group Janus Henderson, corporate debts are surging all over the globe. The total hit a record $8.3bn in 2019, it says, up 8% from the prior year. It was driven by “debt-financed acquisitions, large share buybacks, record dividends, and the chilling effect on profits caused by trade tensions and a global economic slowdown.”Debt levels on the books of UK companies really exploded at an even faster rate. Net debt across London-listed firms rocketed 10% year on year to $539bn, Janus Henderson notes. According to the report, “Vodafone was responsible for half the increase, funding its acquisition of Liberty Global, while Shell borrowed heavily to help fund its $15bn dividend.”Careful nowThis debt boom clearly couldn’t have come at a worse time given the current Covid-19 crisis. On the plus side, Janus Henderson notes that “half the UK companies in our index reduced their borrowings last year.” That should give investors some crumb of comfort. Though of course, buying dividend stocks still needs to be treated with extra care right now.Investors need to pay extra attention to net debt levels as well as free cash flows when choosing dividend stocks. It’s also important to consider how well their operations can weather a global economic downturn and therefore how profits growth is likely to turn out. Another useful thing to consider is dividend cover. This looks at how many times over predicted dividends are covered by anticipated earnings.A top FTSE 100 dividend stockSo which UK dividend stocks would I buy based on this criteria? Well let me give you an example. I have my eye on BAE Systems and its 4.6% forward dividend yield. Net debt is falling (down 18% in 2019), free is cash booming, and it can rely on its recession-resistant businesses to continue driving profits over the medium term. To put a cherry on the cake its predicted dividend for 2020 is covered a healthy 1.9 times over by estimated earnings.Investors need to be especially careful when buying dividend stocks today. But rising debts and a global downturn don’t mean that there are no brilliant income shares to be bought. In fact, the stock market crash allows us to buy top dividend stocks (like BAE Systems) at a hefty discount. You just need to know where to look. Enter Your Email Address UK plc debt is booming!

Peters pays tribute to Sardar Soran Singh during the funeral prayers in the Gurdwara.Photo: Frontier News/Diocese of Peshawar[Anglican Communion News Service] A Pakistani provincial government minister for minority religious affairs has been shot and killed in the northwest of the country.Sardar Soran Singh was a member of the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa provincial assembly; holding one of the seats reserved for religious minorities. In 2013 he was appointed special advisor on minorities affairs to the Chief Minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pervez Khan Khattak.The reserved seats in the assembly for religious minorities are not filled by election but by appointment. The next on the list to take Soran Singh’s place, Baldev Kumar, has now been charged with orchestrating the attack. Singh was killed on April 29 when gunmen on a motorbike opened fire on his car in his home district of Buner, some 100 miles northeast of Peshawar City.Chief minister Khattak has vowed to block Kumar’s place in the legislative assembly unless he is acquitted in court. Pakistani media report that he has confessed to the police.Bishop of Peshawar Humphrey S. Peters was one of a large number of people to pay tribute to Soran Singh and his work building inter-faith harmony. Peters made a personal visit to the Singh family home to pay condolences; and spoke in the Gurdwara at the funeral prayers to pay tribute to Singh and to show solidarity with the Sikh community.“Today I have lost a very special friend in Soran Singh, and his services for the minorities and for the interfaith harmony will never be forgotten,” Bishop Peters told reporters.“Sardar Soran Singh was one of those who rise to glory in a blink an eye,” the Diocese of Peshawar said. “Although he was a renowned political worker and promoter of interfaith harmony in the region, he came into the lime light after becoming special advisor on minorities affairs to the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Pervez Khan Khattak in 2013.”The murder of Soran Singh was marked by the legislative assembly with a resolution agreed by both government and opposition parties calling for his family to receive housing and funding for his children; recognizing that following his death, the family now have no means of sustaining themselves.

Aging or Alzheimer’s? Know the Warning Signs

first_img TAGSAlzheimer’s DiseaseDementiaThe VOICE of Health Previous articleThe Orange County Economic Summit: By the numbersNext articleA local solution to gun-related violence Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR This is really great information, thank you for sharing! Some changes, like needing bifocals to read the newspaper, are perfectly normal as our eyes age. As our brain ages, it’s normal to briefly forget the day of the week or struggle a bit to find the right word. For some people, changes in their brain’s ability to function as it used to may signal the onset of a dementia-related illness such as Alzheimer’s disease.So is it aging or Alzheimer’s?It can be difficult to tell the difference between a normal change and a potential warning sign of Alzheimer’s disease. That’s why it’s important to seek an evaluation from a board-certified geriatrician, such as Rosemary D. Laird, MD, MHSA, Geriatrician with the Florida Hospital Medical Group.Dr. Laird and her team at the Centre for Senior Health in Winter Park are deeply knowledgeable about geriatric cognitive issues. Whether a patient has a concern or a family member has noticed a problem, our interdisciplinary team is ready to help listen to the concern and take steps to find the answers.Getting the conversation startedOften, a patient’s own complaint starts the process of diagnosis and treatment. However, and perhaps even more often, it’s the patient’s family member who has observed changes and brings up the issue.The Alzheimer’s Association lists the following 10 warning signs and symptoms of a memory disorder:Memory loss that disrupts daily life: Includes forgetting important dates or events, asking for the same information over and over and increasing reliance on notes to help you remember.Challenges in planning or solving problems: For example, having trouble following a familiar recipe or keeping track of monthly bills.Difficulty completing familiar tasks at work, home and leisure: If you have difficulty driving to a familiar place or remembering the rules of a favorite game, consider seeing a doctor.Confusion with time or place: Those with Alzheimer’s can lose track of dates, seasons and the passage of time. Includes having trouble understanding something if it’s not happening right now.Trouble understanding images and spatial relationships: Alzheimer’s may cause difficulty reading, judging distance or determining color. This can cause problems with driving.New problems with speaking or writing words: Includes trouble following or joining a conversation. A person with Alzheimer’s may stop talking and have no idea how to continue or call things by the wrong name (e.g. calling a watch a “hand-clock”).Misplacing things and losing the ability to retrace steps: Alzheimer’s may lead a person to put things in unusual places and be unable to go back over their steps to find them.Decreased or poor judgment: For example, a person with Alzheimer’s may give large amounts of money to telemarketers or pay less attention to grooming.Withdrawal from work or social activities: They may have trouble keeping up with a favorite sports team or practicing a hobby. They may avoid being social as a result.Changes in mood and personality: Alzheimer’s can lead a person to become confused, suspicious, depressed, fearful or anxious. This may lead them to become easily upset.Let’s assume you have the patient’s permission to speak on their behalf. If you notice these symptoms in a loved one, you’re presented with a challenge — and an opportunity.The challenge, shared by you and your doctors, is using compassion, honesty and hope to persuade your loved one to get treated. After all, knowledge is power. Knowing what is happening, earlier in the process allows patients and caregivers more opportunity to work together to make treatment decisions as well as plan for the future.Some patients resist being evaluated for memory loss. They may not notice the change in their abilities or, believing nothing can be done, fear a diagnosis. Here are some tips from Dr. Laird that might encourage a hesitant loved one to agree to an evaluation.First, if your loved one hasn’t noticed a big change, acknowledge it may not be a big issue now but could threaten his or her independence in the future. Getting evaluated now will provide a starting point to make comparisons against in the future.Some patients may suspect there is a problem but simply don’t want to know for sure. They may also believe it is pointless to be evaluated because the condition is hopeless.Be sure to point out that there are some medical conditions that can mimic Alzheimer’s disease, but in fact are reversible. Getting a full medical evaluation will allow these conditions to be examined.In the past, there really were “no treatments.” Now, we have medications that can lessen some of the symptoms patients face. “The sooner we know why something is happening, the sooner we can address it with appropriate treatments,” she said.The Alzheimer’s Association, too, says early detection can allow patients to maximize the benefit of treatments, including a greater chance to participate in clinical drug trials to advance research.Early diagnosis also allows a patient to make their wishes known and help make decisions about care, transportation, money and living options.Listening to familyBecause family members are often the first to spot a potential issue, Dr. Laird has learned the most common symptoms they report:Financial mistakes — paying twice, forgetting to pay and misplacing billsLanguage — struggles to find a word and missing words in speechSocial activities — canceling bridge games and no longer attending club meetingsDr. Laird also refers families to resources that can help them, including an Alzheimer’s Association support group. The association’s website lists about two dozen such groups and meetings in Central Florida.Getting helpOnce you’ve noticed a sign or symptom, make an appointment with your/your loved one’s primary care doctor. Explain your concerns. He or she may do an evaluation or may refer you on to a geriatrician or other physician who specializes in cognitive issues. At such an appointment, the physician will do a full history and physical looking for the reversible causes. The visit will also include some form of cognitive testing to assess the areas of strength and weakness that can help identify the type of condition causing the symptoms.Why a Geriatrician?While you should first talk over your concern with your primary care provider, you can self-refer for consultation with Dr. Laird and her team at the Centre for Senior Health.With a team that includes a nurse practitioner, medical assistant and social worker, Dr. Laird’s practice can deploy a more holistic approach to meet a patient’s needs. “It boils down to comprehensiveness,” said Dr. Laird, who was named the American Geriatrics Society “2013 Geriatrician of the Year.”“We focus on our patient’s whole life, including their health, function, and family relationships,” she said. In other words, they want to know what your challenges and abilities are and what’s important to you in order to help you maintain your spirit and quality of life. The clinic’s team approach means you have a range of professionals helping you through memory loss issues and the many other challenges that can come with aging.Dr. Laird has more than 20 years of experience helping patients and families navigate the joys and challenges of life’s later stages. Her team members at Centre for Senior Health in Winter Park are all experts in supporting older patients and their families.To reach Dr. Laird’s Winter Park practice, call (855) 303-DOCS.

Seven states of passage are set between the main gate and the back yard of this house. The first passage is under a grate lattice that floats above the entrance. To its left is a massive concrete wall that hangs above a dark reflection pool and hides the house interior.Save this picture!© Amit GeronThe second stage is beyond this wall, at a more private entrance hall that reveals the house and yet is separated from it with a glass wall. Save this picture!© Amit GeronThe third stage is at the main front door where there are two hallways – the main one crosses through the house whereas the second leads to the guest bathroom. Save this picture!© Amit GeronThe fourth stage is when moving along the main hall, which at its left is an internal patio rising three stories high, and housing both the staircase and a sitting area. Save this picture!© Amit GeronWalking along the hall reveals the fifth stage, when the more private kitchen and family room are seen through slits in the hallway wall.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!ElevationsThe last stages are at the end of the hallway, where the living room is and, eventually, the open yard above which, echoing the entrance, floats a grate lattice. Save this picture!© Amit GeronSave this picture!© Amit GeronThe hallway holds two windows. One is long and narrow and set at eye level. It is situated between the house’s two private cubes that are separated by the public spaces. Another, sky window opens above the hallway and illuminates it with light that softens by its fall on the slanted railing wall of the second story bridge. Here too the grate lattice pattern appears, as it filters the light entering through the sky window. Save this picture!© Amit GeronProject gallerySee allShow lessSite de Thales / LCR ARCHITECTESSelected ProjectsMultipurpose classroom, Phu Chi Fah Forest Fire Control Station / Geodesic Design Co…Selected Projects Share “COPY” Area:  800 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyHouses•Israel Architects: Pitsou Kedem Architects Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/805857/n2-house-pitsou-kedem-architects Clipboard N2 House / Pitsou Kedem Architects Year:  2016 “COPY” Israel ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/805857/n2-house-pitsou-kedem-architects Clipboard Projects Houses CopyAbout this officePitsou Kedem ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesIsraelPublished on February 23, 2017Cite: “N2 House / Pitsou Kedem Architects” 23 Feb 2017.
