The Lloyds share price is low! Here’s my plan to get rich off this stock

first_img Enter Your Email Address “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Miles Williams | Wednesday, 15th July, 2020 | More on: LLOY Image source: Getty Images. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. I think an investment in Lloyds (LSE: LLOY) right now could potentially make you rich. Here are some facts. The Lloyds share price is down 47% year on year. The company’s earnings for the first quarter in 2020 has dropped a whopping 60% from the same period last year. Demand in the housing market is down sharply, and interest rates are at an all-time low. Both of these factors translate to less income for the company. It has also become very costly to run all 1,100 of the company’s branches during Covid-19.These trading conditions are a catalyst for disaster, and the Lloyds share price reflects this. But this can be good news for the savvy investor as it presents a unique investment opportunity, in my opinion. Here’s why.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…You CAN teach old dogs new tricksThere is some light at the end of the tunnel. In 2018 Lloyds introduced a new strategy, and I believe this gives us insight into how the company can recoup profits, leading to the Lloyds share price bouncing back. At the core of its plan was to improve customer experience. It is an excellent start since “the customer is always right” and the company planned on doing this in three ways.Firstly, further digitisation of the group. The more “we” as the customer can do from our couches, the less Lloyds has to spend on branches. Also, to attract younger customers, the company needs to keep up its online presence to stay relevant. Lloyds seems to be on the right track here.Secondly, the company plans to maximise its current offerings. This includes an additional £6 billion in loans to start-ups and SMEs. There is definitely more risk involved, but with such low-interest rates, Lloyds needs to increase the volume of loans.Thirdly, transform the way the company’s employees work. The target here is to improve efficiency company-wide by 30%.The ultimate purpose of the strategy is to make things more efficient, grow revenue streams and reduce costs. All this should contribute towards pushing up the bottom line. And for a while, it seemed to be working: Lloyds’ share price showed signs of strength, until Covid-19 hit.The bigger pictureAt its core, Lloyds is a good company with sound fundamentals. Over the past five years, its historical annual earnings growth is 24%, which is exceptional. The bank’s liabilities consist of low-risk source of funds, which consequently lead to a low level of loans gone bad at only 1.3%. The company has a robust network of customers and a solid product offering. Despite Lloyds’ shares currently being low, I think they still have a lot to offer.In my opinion – once the dust settles, the masks come off, and life returns to “normal” – interest rates will rise and demand in the housing market will once again reach all-time highs. Lloyds’ strategy should continue to pay off, and its operating costs will likely be considerably lower than before the pandemic. This is a recipe for success, and I think it could lead to the Lloyds share price reaching all-time highs.

New rulebook for private site fundraisers introduced by Fundraising Regulator

first_img About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001. She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. Rulebooks for street & door-to-door fundraisers updatedThe existing rulebooks for street and door-to-door fundraisers have also been updated to strengthen the links between the rulebooks and the Code of Fundraising Practice. The revised versions distinguish between the Fundraising Regulator’s public-facing role and the operational compliance role carried out by the Institute of Fundraising (IoF) with its members, clarifying that the Fundraising Regulator will deal with public concerns through its standard complaints procedure.The revised rulebooks also reference compliance arrangements between the Institute of Fundraising and its members such as its site management diaries, site management agreements with local authorities and penalty points system. The rules relating to these arrangements will be relocated to the Institute of Fundraising website.Stephen Service, Policy Manager, Fundraising Regulator, said:“The Fundraising Regulator is responsible for overseeing the public facing aspects of the rulebooks. Our latest revisions to the street and door-to-door rulebooks reflect this role more clearly by ensuring that all rules included are relevant to the public.”Peter Hills-Jones, Director of Compliance at the Institute of Fundraising said:“Private site fundraising is vital for many of our members, who are all committed to meeting the highest standards. This new rulebook will therefore be a welcome tool to help fundraisers, and together with the Institute of Fundraising’s mystery shopping programme shows the strength of self-regulation. By working in partnership with the Fundraising Regulator, we are further improving the sustainability of this important form of fundraising.”  193 total views,  1 views today New rulebook for private site fundraisers introduced by Fundraising Regulator Melanie May | 10 August 2017 | News Tagged with: face-to-face Fundraising Regulator Institute of Fundraisingcenter_img  194 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis8 The Fundraising Regulator has introduced a new rulebook for private site fundraising as part of wider changes to standards for face to face fundraisers.The rulebook follows a review of the standards for face-to-face fundraising carried out by the Fundraising Regulator in collaboration with the Institute of Fundraising. The review found that, while the street fundraising rulebook covers high streets, there was a need for a rulebook that covers privately owned sites, such as shopping centres, supermarkets and shop porches.The new rulebook focuses on site-specific standards which apply to fundraisers working in local areas. This includes:Avoiding behaviours that could cause members of the public to become startled or anxious, or bring the charity represented into disrepute.Ensuring that potential donors are able to make a fully informed decision to donate and that all information provided is clear and accurate.Positioning fundraising teams to avoid obstructing pedestrians and disrupting businesses.Being clearly identifiable as a fundraiser, wearing an identification badge and, where appropriate, charity branded clothing.Suzanne McCarthy, Chair Standards Committee, Fundraising Regulator, said:“The new private site rulebook, developed in consultation with fundraisers, is designed to ensure that there is a clear and consistent set of standards across all face-to face-fundraising, regardless of whether it takes place in public or in privately owned spaces. We look forward to continuing our work with fundraisers and thank them for their support.” Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis8last_img read more

Albright not welcome in Brooklyn, N.Y.

first_imgSara Flounders of IAC calls out Madeleine Albright.Brooklyn, N.Y. — “War criminal! You belong in jail! Mass murderer! Fascist!” and “Fascist Albright, you can’t hide! We charge you with genocide!”Protesters addressed these words loud and clear to Madeleine Albright, former secretary of state in the Clinton administration, during a speech she gave in Brooklyn, N.Y., on April 10. Albright was interrupted six times by six different protesters speaking truth to power and holding banners reading “Albright is a war criminal!”Albright is promoting her new book, “Fascism: A Warning.” The promotion tour started on April 9 in Manhattan at a Barnes & Noble bookstore, where she was also confronted with the same accusing words. After Brooklyn, her tour continues to other major cities in the U.S. Albright is using her well-advertised national speaking tour to oppose Trump — but how? By promoting new U.S. wars and threatening Russia, China, Venezuela, Syria and Iran.Albright’s appearance in Brooklyn, organized by the Community Bookstore, took place at the Congregation Beth Elohim in the affluent neighborhood of Park Slope. The event’s moderator, Brooke Gladstone of WNYC radio, displayed an unusually hostile attitude toward the protesters, reflecting her so-called “public” station’s policy of suppressing anti-war voices.The protest, called by the International Action Center on short notice, was attended by some two dozen activists — a lively, multigenerational and multinational group that included a number of City University students and professors. After picketing in front of the Community Bookstore, the group marched to the entrance of Beth Elohim, where they gave out flyers detailing Albright’s misdeeds. Many of the attendees — who paid $32 for the ticket and the book — did not know some basic facts about her.As secretary of state, Albright, who now poses as an opponent of the criminal Trump administration, has publicly defended policies that caused countless deaths and suffering around the globe, including the continuation of genocidal sanctions on Iraq that killed more than half a million children. Albright helped orchestrate sanctions and 78 days of bombing of Yugoslavia in 1999, as well as promoted sanctions and threats against Iran and Korea.Barry Lituchy, an adjunct assistant professor of history at Medgar Evers College, called the synagogue’s honoring of Albright “a despicable disgrace.” Lituchy added: “Albright orchestrated the breakup and bombing of Yugoslavia in the 1990s, employing fascist and terrorist forces who killed and tortured thousands of men, women and children. Albright supported Franjo Tudjman in Croatia, a well-known racist, and Alija Izetbegovic in Bosnia, a man who had been in the political wing of the Bosnian Muslim SS (Handjar) Division during World War II.”Lituchy’s 2006 book, “Jasenovac and the Holocaust in Yugoslavia,” deals with the genocides committed by Germany and Croatia in World War II. Lituchy added: “It is also outrageous that Albright should be posing as an anti-fascist and defender of free speech when she not only brought fascists to power, but was responsible for the murder of 16 journalists and staff at Radio-Television Serbia in 1999 when they had the temerity to report on the bombing of their country by Albright. When she doesn’t like what you have to say, she has you murdered. That’s her idea of free speech — free only for fascists like her.”In 1999, three Chinese journalists who reported on the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia were killed when their room in the Chinese Embassy in Belgrade was targeted by a U.S. missile.The protests against war criminal Albright will continue, wherever she pops up, from Prague and Bratislava to cities across the U.S. Never forget!

Frogs’ late rally against No. 4 Baylor falls just short

first_imgprintDespite being down by as many as 25 points in the third quarter Wednesday night, TCU fought until the final buzzer, losing to the No. 4 Baylor Bears by just six points, 81-75.“TCU just didn’t quit and didn’t go away, and we got real, real comfortable out there,” Baylor head coach Kim Mulkey said.TCU head coach Raegan Pebley credited her players for pushing through a rough first half. She said shots fell for TCU’s “great shooters” in the fourth quarter that they just didn’t make in the first half.“Had a couple more of those fallen [in the first half], especially at certain key moments in the game, you see a little bit more momentum built up,” Pebley said.The loss dropped the Horned Frogs’ record to 12-11 overall and 4-8 in conference play. The win for Baylor increased their lead over TCU in the all-time series between the two teams to 30-5. The Bears have won the last 20 contests in the series.The Frogs haven’t had an easy schedule of late. They faced a ranked team for the eighth time in their last 20 games, including four games against top-6 teams.TCU’s conference-leading 27 percent defense on three-point field goals didn’t come in handy against the Bears on Wednesday night. Their gameplay down low did the Frogs in. TCU was outscored in the point 22-40 and out-rebounded by 21 (31-52) by the Baylor bigs.“We have big post players…and then we come in with big players, we’re going to get post touches,” Mulkey said. “We’re not going to shoot the 3 like everybody in the conference does because we have bigs inside.”In actuality, Baylor didn’t even take over the ball game until the second quarter. TCU started the game 6-0 behind two three-pointers by senior forward Caitlin Diaz.After those six points, Baylor took off. The game truly began to unravel for the Frogs at the end of the first half, as TCU Head Coach Raegan Pebley picked up a technical with 20 seconds left in the half.The Bears led 39-25 at the end of the second quarter but exploded to a 63-38 lead after three.Baylor just bullied TCU in the third quarter. The Bears increased their rebounding edge over to the Frogs to a 42-21 margin, and they kept shooting high-percentage shots in the paint to increase their points in the paint margin to 24 (36-12).After only scoring eight points in the first three quarters, Medley forgot how to miss, shooting 5-5 for 16 points, 24 in the game. Medley sparked the Horned Frogs to a 37-point outburst in the fourth quarter, but it wouldn’t be enough.Medley said she believes her teammates’ encouragement allowed her to play relaxed, which led to her perfect quarter.“They [my teammates] were just telling me, ‘Z, I don’t care how many shots you miss, I still want you to shoot,’” Medley said.Sophomore point guard AJ Alix followed Medley’s lead by shooting 5-7 in the fourth quarter for 13 points, 18 points for the game.Defensively, the Frogs adapted a foul-oriented game-plan to extend the game.“So, a little bit of hack-a-Shaq situation,” Pebley said. “And sometimes they still got an offensive rebound in those situations, but we just needed to lengthen the game to give us a chance.”The 37 points in the fourth quarter is the most Baylor has given up in a quarter all season, and the 75 total points by TCU is the most Baylor has given up in a game this season.Despite the loss, Medley took away some positives from Wednesday night’s game.“I think it just allows us to build confidence going into the next game,” she said. “I think we needed to see some shots fall for us…having that great chemistry at the end will build toward the next game.”The Horned Frogs return to the Schollmaier Arena hardwood Saturday at 1 p.m. against Iowa State.

PUSD to Issue Layoff Notices to Close $7 – $12 Million Budget Deficit

first_img First Heatwave Expected Next Week Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * Education PUSD to Issue Layoff Notices to Close $7 – $12 Million Budget Deficit Published on Thursday, February 28, 2013 | 1:54 pm Subscribe At its meeting Feb. 26, the Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) Board of Education voted 4-3 to authorize reduction in force notices for 81.5 certificated employees due to a funding deficit estimated to range between $7 and $12 million for the 2013-2014 school year. By law, employees with a credential such as teachers, nurses, counselors and administrators must be notified that their positions are being considered for elimination by March 15. The Board expressed a desire to make further administrative cuts prior to March 15.“Voter approval of Proposition 30 cut our deficit in half, but PUSD is still facing the expiration of grants and declining enrollment,” said PUSD Superintendent Jon R. Gundry. “There are still many variables to factor in this spring, including the effects of the federal sequestration, the fate of Governor Brown’s local control funding formula and the final makeup of the 2013-2014 state budget. Authorizing reduction in force notices means that PUSD has the flexibility to prepare for a worst-case scenario.”Under the Governor’s proposed local control funding formula, districts will receive additional funding based on the number of English learners, students eligible for free and reduced-priced meals and foster youth they serve. This additional funding, known as supplemental funding and concentration grants, will assist schools in meeting the unique educational needs of these students. If approved by state lawmakers, the new formula could reduce the district’s deficit by $5.1 million.PUSD has had to cut more than $26.2 million since 2010 due to a combination of the continuing state budget crisis and declining enrollment. Two elementary schools have closed, class size has increased, employees have been furloughed and the school year has been shortened.Some of the 81.5 positions notified for elimination are procedural. Superintendent Gundry reiterated at the meeting that there will be no cuts to PUSD’s College & Career Pathways program. The PUSD Board Education must confirm the final reduction in force notices by May 15.Since 2010, PUSD has issued a total of 365 reduction in force notices. Because of revised enrollment and budget projections, retirements and savings achieved from employee furloughs, energy conservation, and one time savings the district has been able to reinstate all but 23 positions during that time. PUSD currently employs 1035 certificated employees, of which 922 are teachers.

Teachers heading to Tulane for advanced bio lesson

first_img WhatsApp Teachers heading to Tulane for advanced bio lesson Facebook ECISD, Tulane logos A group of teachers from Odessa and Justin will be heading to Tulane University School of Medicine today to learn about cell biology, microscopy and bioengineering. Tissue engineering, stem cell biology, tissue culture, cell image analysis and bioreactors are also on the agenda for career and technical education health science teachers Holley Davilla, Shonda Owen, Christina Portillo and Tenille Aranda, Chief Innovation Officer Jason Osborne said. Osborne said he first went to Tulane a year ago to work toward a partnership with the university. “There’s a lot of pieces there. It takes a while to get any of these initiatives to the point where we can start embedding. Then you have to get teachers excited. … ,” Osborne said. He added that there is no shortage of teachers who are anticipating the various professional development opportunities that have come up recently. In November 2018, 12 teachers visited the Perot Museum of Nature and Science where they got an exclusive tour of their bio lab, as well as fossil prep room. Teachers also got to anatomist Joy know Reidenberg, along and other paleontologists and scientists as they dug for fossils. Osborne said this gives teachers a chance to put their experiences to use in the classroom and get students excited about their future. “… We want to make sure that it’s all over the country, if not the globe, that we can open up this window for teachers and students. We have seen some teachers grow dramatically in the way that they are now embedding their lessons and bringing real, tangible experiences to the classroom,” Osborne added. The Education Foundation is pitching in for travel costs to fly teachers to Tulane. The initiative is part of PICK Education, a program aimed at providing hands-on professional development for teachers and bringing real-world science and research projects to ECISD students. “We’re always grateful for their support,” Osborne said. He added that Science Coordinator Ashley Osborne will be going to Tulane also to learn about software implementation and how to embed it into biology classes, Advanced Placement biology and possibly physics. ECISD’s future projects with Tulane will be to replicate bioreactors here and to mimic exactly what the lab is doing in Tulane. Osborne said a bioreactor is a device where you can isolate tissue and build cells onto scaffolding that acts as a template for tissue regeneration. “Not only will the students learn about this type of research and actively do the research, there’s a huge potential for their data to go to scientific research to be a part of it. … Their data could be added into a publication and they could get credit for their work, which is really exciting. They could get Texas Scholar hours out of this,” Osborne said. Osborne said the district will be working with Bruce Bunnell at Tulane and Clay Christian has been working as a liaison between Tulane and ECISD. He said Bunnell is one of Tulane’s top faculty at the medical school. “The opportunity is just so rare — one to have the opportunity to be able to be involved with Tulane medical campus, but then also to have a researcher that’s so willing to open the door and this cost the district zero when it came to the training,” Osborne said. The ECISD teachers will fly out Wednesday and return Saturday. Two teachers from Northwest ISD in Justin are also participating. “We have pretty intensive days of training that take us into Friday afternoon, then opportunities to meet other researchers that are now catching on to this idea, so that’s super exciting,” Osborne said. He said the idea is to build a model with a view toward pulling in other laboratories. “This is the same model as what we’re working with Texas Tech Health Sciences with the human placenta projects,” Osborne said. Aranda and Davilla said they are “super excited” about the chance to go to Tulane. They are both respiratory therapists who decided to teach. “I think it’s a great opportunity for us and for our students. It’s something that we’re going to be able to bring back that’s out of their element, but hopefully it’s something that they’re going to want to do and like to do,” Davilla said. Neither Aranda nor Davilla thought this would be available to teachers or students. “I think it’s on a completely different level,” Davilla said. “I would have never thought that they’d want high school students to help in research.” Aranda said they hope to implement what they learn as soon as possible. “We know what they’re going teach us there, but we don’t know when and how we’re going to implement it with what they’re learning now,” Davilla said. The teachers also are excited about getting to learn alongside their students and meeting peers from Northwest ISD and learn how they are going to use what they’ve learned in their curriculum. “We hope to understand it all. We’re going to be sponges,” Aranda said. Executive Director of Career and Technical Education Carla Byrne said she is excited that CTE is being given this opportunity to lead the way for ECISD students in healthcare programs. “Often CTE is overlooked as high rigor, high academics, which is just not the case. Students in the health science program are bright and passionate about medicine and healthcare. This just makes sense and we are so grateful,” Byrne said.

A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice Nataraj Rangaswamy while passing interim directions on a petition seeking stricter enforcement of the National Directive for Covid Management issued by the Central government, said “State must ensure that strict action is taken against every one who is violating the directions of authorities. Especially against political figures and elected representatives. If action is not taken it will send a wrong signal.” The bench also directed the government to in a week’s time set up a grievance redressal mechanism where citizens can lodge complaints about violation of norms if any, either through email, SMS or whatsapp facility. The bench has said “Apart from number 100 (police control room), we direct the state to create a grievance redressal mechanism to enable citizens to lodge complaints by various methods, emails, SMS whatsapp etc. Even the facility of uploading photographs may be allowed. The state must ensure the complaints reach all the authorities who are under obligation to take prompt action.” It has also asked the government to give wide publicity to the same. State government is also directed to ensure that criminal law is set in motion in case of violations found under section 51 and 54 of the Disaster Management (DM) Act and section 188 of India Penal Code. Additional Advocate General Dhyan Chinnappa had told the court that the government has authorised the Station House Officers to lodge complaints. The bench added that “Even if SHO is authoritized by the state other district authorities under the DM Act are not absolved of setting law in motion. In the event, offences are noticed.” The bench gave the directions while hearing a petition filed by Letzkit Foundation. Advocate Puttige R Ramesh, appearing for the petitioner, had argued that since June 8, when the places are thrown open there is violation of social distancing norms and people are moving around without wearing face masks. The bench has also directed the state to take necessary steps to authorize district officers under the DM Act who can take penal action of collecting spot fines in different parts of the state, within one week. It said “Only if a large number of officers are authorized to collect fines can norms be implemented effectively.” As per government orders in Municipal Corporation limits, Rs 200 fine can be levied on people not wearing face masks and Rs 100 in rural areas of the state. The court pressed for stricter implementation of guidelines issued by the Central and State government and the Standard Operating Procedures issued by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare on June 4, allowing phased wise unlocking from June 8, in areas outside the containment zones. It said “It will not be in any dispute that stringent measures need to be taken by all the authorities. During the last few days the cases in the city have started multiplying very fast.
