When I was a lad in the 70s, one of the frequent visitors to our area was ‘the man from the Pru’. He was one of thousands of agents collecting small, weekly insurance premiums on behalf of FTSE 100 giant Prudential.A new FTSE 100 memberThe Pru has changed a lot over the decades, on its way to becoming a £31.7bn FTSE 100 heavyweight. Most recently, on 21 October last year, the Pru demerged investment manager M&G (LSE: MNG), which itself joined the FTSE 100 at the next reshuffle.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…M&G on its own is a formidable business. The savings and investments firm has more than five million retail customers and 800 institutional clients in 28 markets. Its two main brands, Prudential and M&G Investments, are household names almost worldwide.A small FTSE 100 firm takes a diveAs I write, M&G shares trade just below 170p, having risen 2% on Friday. This values the investment manager at £4.4bn, placing it among the 25 smallest members of the FTSE 100 by size. But they say that small is beautiful and, when it comes to M&G, I agree.Since listing 10 months ago, M&G shares peaked at 245.9p on 19 February, before brutally plunging to just 84.1p on 18 March. Frankly, at below 85p, I think they were the bargain of the century, which is why they have doubled since those dark days.M&G shares are cheap as chipsEven though M&G shares are up over 100% from their all-time low, I still see obvious value in this FTSE 100 stock. For example, they trade almost a third (30.9%) below their February high, so they’re far from their peak.What’s more, when you crunch the numbers on M&G shares, they look insanely undervalued. Right now, they trade on a price-to-earnings ratio of 4.16, for an earnings yield of a whopping 24%. The dividend yield is a bumper 7%, covered 3.43 times by earnings.In other words, this FTSE 100 share makes 24% a year, pays 7% of this in cash to shareholders and then reinvests the remaining 17% back into the business. With returns this dizzyingly high, I feel that M&G shares shouldn’t be 170p for much longer.M&G has weaknesses – and strengthsOf course, if M&G’s future was blindingly bright, its shares wouldn’t be among the lowest-rated in the entire FTSE 100. In the investment business, fat margins are being eroded as investors switch from high-fee managed funds to low-cost trackers.But M&G’s strength as a fixed-income asset manager is also supported by the extreme profitability of its run-off legacy insurance business. Also, M&G’s Solvency II ratio of 168% demonstrates its financial strength. Furthermore, as the FTSE 100 and other indices recover, the firm’s assets under management will grow.While it’s hard to see bumper growth from M&G, it makes a strong case as a cash generator and dividend dynamo. Few investors could get excited about this FTSE 100 share, but that’s my point. It’s a boring business that will produce a torrent of cash over the coming decades.

Old Sag Harbor Road is a four bedroom, 7,100 sq ft home in Southampton, NY. The clients are an energetic couple, who were attracted to the pristine surroundings and envisioned the project as a secret enclave in the trees for themselves and their friends.

The other is an interior designer who recently obtained an architecture degree; he served as a key collaborator on the project and took on design challenges as part of the team. Save this picture!© Attic FirePerched at the high point of a heavily wooded site, the house is sited parallel to the existing contours.  The topography enabled Blaze Makoid Architecture (BMA) to introduce a walk-out lower level, which is unusual for the area. The house is long and narrow with program arranged linearly for an economically minimal footprint.  The horizontality of the design allows the second floor mass to float above the landscape and cantilever at both ends. The house overlooks a negative edge pool that continues the horizon into the woods. At the rear, a vertically articulated wall visually connects all three levels. Early on in the design process, BMA established the interior staircase as a central sculptural element that weaves all three levels together. Save this picture!© Attic FireSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Attic FireKnown for its seamless approach to indoor/outdoor living, BMA designed moments for the clients, in which from within the home they could look out to the trees instead of walls.

London Luton Airport seeks new official charity partner

first_img London Luton Airport (LLA) is inviting submissions from local charities to become its official charity partner, to be supported by the airport throughout 2018 and 2019.LLA is looking to work with charities aligned with its Community Engagement Strategy (CES), which focuses on three core areas: protecting the environment, building sustainable communities and contributing to economic growth.LLA’s current partnership with Keech Hospice Care (pictured) has raised over £80,000 during the last 18 months, beating the £50,000 target for the two-year partnership. Fundraising activities led by the airport included its first “runway run” and a sponsored bike ride from LLA to Amsterdam.In addition to the official charity partnership, the LLA Community Trust Fund also provides donations to local organisations and community groups throughout the Three Counties, with almost £250,000 distributed in the past two years. LLA’s ‘Get Into Airports’ programme, run in partnership with the Prince’s Trust to offer training and work experience, has also helped over 153 local young people into employment in and around the airport and its supply chain since it began in 2011.Chika Austin, community relations executive at LLA, said:“We’re looking for a proactive and engaged charity partner as we build upon our previous fundraising success. It’s not just our passengers who benefit from the airport’s growth, but also the local community, and we’re excited to hear about all the great work undertaken by the region’s organisations that we can support during 2018 and 2019.”Applications and criteria can be downloaded from LLA’s community website with a closing date for applications of Monday 31st July.

Verdict due on 9 August in trial of journalist detained for libel

The organisation says the trial has been subject to government influence and calls for Gbossokotto’s acquittal and release. News Follow the news on Central African Republic Organisation Six years on, same unanswered questions about French journalist’s death in CAR to go further May 13, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders today described the continued detention of newspaper editor Maka Gbossokotto for libel as a “disgraceful violation of press freedom” and called for his outright acquittal and release when a Bangui court issues its verdict on the case on 9 August. Gbossokotto, who edits the independent daily Le Citoyen and is the Reporters Without Borders correspondent in the Central African Republic, has been detained since 8 July.”It is high time the judges put an end to this intolerable situation,” the organisation said, noting that the court’s refusal to accord him a provisional release at the first hearing on 16 July met with widespread disbelief.The indictment brought by the prosecutor and the call for a one-year prison sentence in addition to a fine highlight the failure of the authorities to respect the pledges to decriminalise press offences which they gave when they came to power in the spring of last year, Reporters Without Borders said.Although the libel prosecution was brought by a private individual, the government is clearly bringing its influence to bear on the judges and the case has had political overtones from the outset, the organisation charged. It added: “As justice cannot be fairly rendered, we call for Gbossokotto’s acquittal on all charges.”The libel complaint against Gbossokotto was brought by the former head of the national power utility ENERCA, Jean-Serge Wafio, who was fired by President François Bozizé for mismanagement and was accused of embezzlement in several articles in Le Citoyen.Although the president has said he is “in no way concerned by the case, which involves two citizens,” justice minister Hyacinthe Wodobodé recently contradicted him by publicly saying during a meal at the Chinese embassy that the government planned to request that Gbossokotto be sentenced to three months in prison and then pardon him on the Central African Republic’s independence day on 13 August.Gbossokotto’s imprisonment had elicited many protests from civil society groups and has become a symbol of a hardening in the policies pursued by the Bozizé government, which has been rounding on all dissident voices whether in the opposition or the press.The day after his arrest, the privately-owned news media suspended publication of their newspapers for a week in protest. A sit-in was planned by the Group of Independent Privately-Owned Central African Press Editors (GEPPIC) on 4 August, but it was banned at the last moment by interior minister Marcel Malonga, who deployed police at the site of the proposed protest. A new protest has been called for 8 August.There have been many reactions in political circles as well. The opposition Liberal Democratic Party (PLD) challenged the government “about the repeated attacks on press freedom which have been accompanied by Maka Gbossokotto’s imprisonment.” The Central African Transition Parliament (CNT) has at the same time issued “an urgent appeal to the national and international community to take action to thwart any attempt to return to an out-of-date and retrograde political order.” News Help by sharing this information last_img read more

Eritrea ended media freedom 15 years ago this month

first_imgNews Swedish prosecutors again refuse to investigate Dawit Isaak case Organisation Receive email alerts RSF_en News EritreaAfrica Condemning abuses ImpunityDisappearances Help by sharing this information EritreaAfrica Condemning abuses ImpunityDisappearances April 14, 2021 Find out more Reports On 18 September 2001, the government led by Issayas Afeworki, a former hero of the Eritrean revolution turned dictator, rounded up all the opposition members who had dared to publish an open letter in the privately-owned media calling on the government to implement the constitution and hold elections. The editors of all the independent print media were arrested a week later. Held in Asmara without being tried or charged, they went on hunger strike. In order to hide them from their outraged families and fellow citizens, the authorities transferred them to the remote EiraEiro detention centre. Their families have not seen them since then. Of the 11 journalists arrested in September 2001, seven are believed to have died in detention. The survivors, Dawit Isaak, Seyoum Tsehaye, Temesgen Gebreyesus and Emanuel Asrat, continue to be held. RSF has referred their cases to the UN Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances. “We call on President Afeworki to stop persisting in these arbitrary and repressive practices and to free the journalists who are still imprisoned,” RSF said. “The freedoms of Eritrea’s citizens have been constantly flouted for the past 15 years on the grounds of national security and the eternal conflict with Ethiopia. The president says his priority is development. You cannot have sustainable development without an open society in which the justice system functions and freedoms are respected. “We also address this message to the EU governments that are negotiating a return to normal relations with Asmara without asking about political prisoners and human rights. The journalist Seyoum Tsehaye was arrested 15 years ago today. He is not alone. At least 15 journalists are currently detained arbitrarily in Eritrea. The number is probably higher because no information emerges from this country. “The EU cannot close its eyes to the Eritrean government’s countless violations, which a UN Human Rights Council report in June described as ‘crimes against humanity.’ The EU cannot adopt a conciliatory position towards the Afeworki regime.” In June 2015, RSF filed a complaint against persons unknown before a French court on behalf of Tsehaye’s daughters, but the French judicial authorities said they have no competence over the matter. Western governments are clearly interested in normalizing relations with Asmara because they want to stop the flow of Eritrean refugees, thousands of whom are fleeing the country every month to escape the threat of lifelong conscription. Nonetheless, a UN commission of enquiry into the human rights situation in Eritrea concluded in June that events taking place there, including the enforced disappearance of journalists and politicians, constitute crimes against humanity. RSF is changing its logo on today’s anniversary of Tsehaye’s arrest in order to draw attention to the complete lack of a free press in Eritrea. Eritrea has been ranked last out of 180 countries in RSF’s World Press Freedom Index every year for the past eight years.
