A game will also take place in the South Korean capital of Seoul later in the year.North Korean leader Kim Jong-un first proposed the match when he met with South Korean President Moon Jae-in during the landmark April 27 summit, according to the leading Korean news agency. Sport formed part of a joint declaration from Moon and Kim following April’s historic summit at Panmunjom.

Buying defensive shares is one of the key fail-safe tactics for investing in uncertain times. If we as investors may have been unconvinced of this in the past, the latest stock market crash and the time since has been a good reminder of defensives’ merit. Not only have many of them sustained performance, they have also seen impressive share price increases, making them among the best UK shares to hold in our portfolios now.The reason for their attractiveness isn’t hard to understand. Their share prices tend to be less volatile than their cyclical counterparts because their revenues are dependable even in recessions. On the downside this means that they don’t tend to show the superlative returns that cyclicals might during booms. But over time, they may still turn out to be clear winners. And we at the Motley Fool like stocks that will make gains for investors over time. These are also some of the best UK shares to buy for investors with low-risk thresholds. 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…Best UK shares to buyOne of these defensive shares is the FTSE 100-listed Halma, which provides life-saving technologies. These include environmental protection technologies, medical devices, and safety equipment like security sensors and fire detection. It’s in a financially strong place that ensured it doesn’t have to draw on the government’s financing facility. It expects profits to shrink this year, but this is an exceptional year. I think Halma will ride out the year relatively unscathed. It has a high earnings ratio of 46 times, but I think that’s the price today for a safe, growing, and dividend-paying stock. In other words, it’s the price for one of the best UK shares around today.Spirax Sarco Engineering is another FTSE 100 stock whose recent share price movements bear no recollection of the stock market crash. On the contrary, it’s near all-time highs. Despite some softening in its financials recently, it’s obvious why investors like SPX. In its recent update, SPX pointed to potential revenue stability. There are two reasons for this. One, its customers pay for its services with their operating budgets rather than their capital ones. So even if investments take a hit in the recession, the company isn’t impacted. Two, its revenues are from sectors less impacted by Covid-19. For this reason alone, I think it would be one of the best UK shares to buy today.The FTSE 100 speciality chemicals company Croda International is also one of the best UK shares to buy for reasons similar to HLMA and SPX. Its share price too is around all-time highs as investors flock to safer stocks. It too boasts of robust financials. It has also recently completed an acquisition that’s expected to enhance its R&D capabilities. The takeawayAll these stocks are comparatively pricey, but as some of the best UK shares around I’d be better hedged when I buy them and be assured capital gains. If you are still unconvinced, I’ll leave you with these alternative investment ideas as well.  Image source: Getty Images. last_img read more

Street collections company posts loss

first_img The operations of Face2Face Ireland show the company lost ‚€210,757 in its first full year trading in Ireland. The figures for 2004 show, however, that the British branch of Face2Face made a profit of £367,906. The other major street collections agency in Ireland, Gift Fundraising, does not file accounts in Ireland but its British based parent company made a pre-tax profit of £1.54 million to March 31st, 2005. Collectors working for Gift Ireland are paid ‚€11.69 an hour, while those employed by Face3Face are paid ‚€9.25 in Dublin and ‚€8.42 an hour outside the city.Neither company or the charities they work for were prepared to tell to a national newspaper recently what commission was paid but the street collections were defended as a cost effective way to raise money. The newspaper revealed that in the UK the commission earned per donor was around ‚€104.

Anti-fascist protesters march in Ukraine

first_imgYoung communists in Kiev carry photos of Komsomol resistance fighters executed by Nazis in occupied Ukraine 71 years before, on Feb. 8, 1943.The Communist Party of Ukraine reported that more than 1,000 people joined the anti-fascist march in Kiev on Feb. 8.“Most were young people who oppose the attempts to seize power by the neo-Nazi groups that have settled in the center of Kiev and captured the regional administration in Western Ukraine.”The CPU reported that communists, their youth organization and others marched “under red banners with anti-fascist slogans and chants as they marched along central avenue Lenin to October Square.”CPU Member of Parliament Alexander Zubchevsky spoke to the crowd, noting that “exactly 71 years ago the Nazis executed members of the Komsomol [Communist Youth League] underground organization Young Guard.”“Even the nightmare of our grandparents,” Zubchevsky continued, “who defended the country from invaders arms in hand, could not imagine that in 2014 a rematch of the fascist threat in Ukraine would become a reality, in a country that suffered the most from the Nazis during World War II.”The demonstrators burned an effigy of Stepan Bandera, the idol of the nationalists and fascists, along with flags of the pro-fascist Svoboda organization that has been playing an ever greater role in the pro-European Union and pro-U.S. demonstrations in the Maidan, the main square in Kiev.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Results, Remuneration, and Retribution

first_imgSign up for DS News Daily Related Articles Subscribe in Daily Dose, Featured, News November 2, 2018 1,328 Views Scott Morgan is a multi-award-winning journalist and editor based out of Texas. During his 11 years as a newspaper journalist, he wrote more than 4,000 published pieces. He’s been recognized for his work since 2001, and his creative writing continues to win acclaim from readers and fellow writers alike. He is also a creative writing teacher and the author of several books, from short fiction to written works about writing. A report examined the state of the economy and how the housing market is faring. A government-sponsored enterprise (GSE) completing a decade under conservatorship announced its Q3 results. And a large bank moved toward settling mortgages under the direction of the Department of Justice. These are three of the top stories making the news this Friday. Here’s what you should be keeping tabs on as the nation goes to vote for the mid-term elections on November 6:The Case for a Strong EconomyThe Bureau of Labor Statistics released the jobs data for October on Friday, indicating that while unemployment remained low, wages saw an annual increase of 3.1 percent from the same period last year.”The updated information released today suggests that the labor market remains strong and inflation remains manageable, supporting our call that the Fed will raise its key policy rate in December,” said Doug Duncan, Chief Economist at Fannie Mae. “Meanwhile, the housing sector also registered job gains this month, but the stronger growth in average hourly earnings relative to the private sector overall suggests that labor availability remains a challenge.”According to Tendayi Kapfidze, Chief Economist, LendingTree, the low labor force participation rate has been holding wages back “so it will be important to see if this uptick is sustained since the year-over-year growth may have been biased upwards by a weak number in October 2017.”Rising wages have affected home buying too, according to Mark Fleming, Chief Economist at First American. “If household income had not increased compared with a year ago, rising mortgage rates, which jumped from 3.9 to 4.8 percent over the last year, would have reduced consumer house-buying power by $38,000,” Fleming said. “Rising household income mitigated the impact of higher cost mortgages by $11,000.”Business Fundamentals at Fannie MaeFannie Mae turned a profit in the third quarter and expects to pay $4 billion in dividends to the U.S. Treasury, according to the GSE’s Q3 financial statement, released Friday.Net revenues for the quarter were $5.37 billion. That’s up from $5.27 billion in Q3 of 2017. Pre-tax income was $5 billion. After-tax net income and total comprehensive income for the quarter were both $4 billion, up from $3 billion a year ago. The GSE posted a Q3 value of $7 billion.What all this means for shareholders is a net income of $36 million or $0.01 per share. That compares to last year’s Q3 net loss of $25 million.Fannie’s interim CEO, Hugh Frater, said Q3’s results show a positive forward momentum. “We are focused on serving our customers, helping them navigate market headwinds, and enabling a mortgage process that is better, faster, cheaper, and safer,” Frater said. “That means we have a responsibility to innovate while maintaining our strong commitment to safety, soundness, and stewardship on behalf of taxpayers.”According to the report, the GSE provided $122 billion in liquidity to the single-family mortgage market in the third quarter. It estimated its market share of new single-family mortgage-related securities issuances was 40 percent.Goldman Sachs Moves Closer to Consumer ReliefGoldman Sachs, forgiving principal on 746 loans, is steadily moving closer towards fulfilling its $1.8 billion consumer-relief obligation under its two April 11, 2016, mortgage-related settlement agreements with the U.S. Department of Justice and three states, according to an announcement by Eric D. Green in his ninth report as independent Monitor of the consumer-relief portions of the agreements.Since Green’s previous report on August 1, 2018, Goldman Sachs has forgiven a total of $78,678,617 in principal on 746 first-lien mortgages, for average principal forgiveness of $105,467 per loan and total reportable credit of $79,272,978after the application of appropriate crediting calculations and multipliers. The bank has now modified a total of 10,671 mortgages.The modified mortgages are spread across 42 states and the District of Columbia, with 32 percent of the credit located in the settling states of New York, Illinois, and California, and 47 percent of the credit located in Hardest Hit Areas, or census tracts identified by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development as containing large concentrations of distressed properties and foreclosure activities.”I am pleased to be able to confirm that Goldman Sachs continues to make steady progress toward meeting its obligation to provide Consumer Relief valued at $1.8 billion,” Green said.

Funding confirmed for Riverine project

first_img Twitter DL Debate – 24/05/21 RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR News, Sport and Obituaries on Monday May 24th Homepage BannerNews Previous articleMan arrested after stinger is used to stop car near MuffNext articleHigh level discussions sought to progress Magee Medical School News Highland Google+ Funding confirmed for Riverine project As expected, almost €9 million has been confirmed to progress the Riverine project, which will see the construction of a 30 acre cross border park on the banks of the Foyle between Strabane and Lifford.Funding has come through Peace 4, with matching funding from both governments.Donegal County Council is lead partner in the project, with Rural Development Minister Michael Ring pledging that the the Irish Government will work with all parties to ensure delivery of this essential shared space.*********************************Press Release in full -€8.96 million of EU PEACE IV funding has been offered for a new shared space project that will reach across Lifford and Strabane. Called ‘Riverine,’ the project will create thirty acres of new cross-border community park space and infrastructure, designed to help bring people together. Highlighting the impact that the project will make Tracy Meharg, Permanent Secretary for the Department for Communities said: “The Riverine project provides a great opportunity to further our ambitions for a shared, welcoming and confident society that respects diversity. I am pleased that the communities of the Strabane and Lifford areas are to benefit from this investment in creating a space that will be shared and open to all.  I am confident it will be a resource to be enjoyed for generations to come”.Representing the Lead Partner Cllr. Nicholas Crossan, Cathaoirleach of Donegal County Council said: “This is an iconic project with the potential to create a unique and transformational cross-border shared space that will see communities in Lifford, Strabane and the wider hinterlands coming together to deliver a project that will not only capture their imagination and inspire action but will act as a symbol of peace and reconciliation for generations to come.  One of the most obvious effects of the conflict or troubles is the high level of social segregation which still exists right across the region. Many people only feel comfortable living and mixing within their own communities. While there is no doubt the conflict or troubles has had an impact on the Lifford and Strabane area in terms of social segregation, the PEACE IV funded ‘Riverine’ project, led by Donegal County Council, has the potential to positively encourage communities from different religions, cultures and social backgrounds to form positive friendships and get involved in inclusive integration.The ‘Riverine’ project will encompass a number of unique elements all designed to encourage greater levels of positive cross-community contact. These elements will include: a pavilion building (for various cultural and heritage events); outdoor wetland and park space (for recreation and environmental education activities); a family fun space (comprising of a toddler and junior adventure play area); cross-border pathways and greenways (to accommodate leisure and recreation activities); and a newly constructed pedestrian footbridge (that will symbolically connect the space across the River Foyle).Match-funding for the project has been provided by the Department for Communities in Northern Ireland and the Department of Rural and Community Development in Ireland.Welcoming the project Gina McIntyre, CEO of the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB), which manages the PEACE IV Programme, said: “This is one of a number of shared space projects that are currently being funded under the PEACE IV Programme. Each project is designed to help people understand that they have much more in common than that which keeps them apart. This is one of the core goals of the programme as it helps people to overcome some of the prejudices that they may hold of the ‘other’ community. Facebook WhatsApp Journey home will be easier – Paul Hegarty Facebook Twitter “By creating a shared space which citizens can enjoy together, irrespective of their background, the project will help them to gain a better understanding of what life is like for someone of a different religion or culture, and in so doing will help to create a more cohesive society,” she continued.After its construction, the project will deliver upon a number of different programming activities to maximise its usage from both the local Protestant and Catholic communities, on both sides of the border.
