Senior Liberal Democrats led the pack at their conference in Liverpool, as party leaders tried to convince members they have not sold out by sharing power with the Conservatives. Deputy prime minister and Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg warned banks against paying “ludicrously sky-high” bonuses, and said there would be “very serious action” if they do. He added: “If you abuse the generosity of taxpayers then clearly this government won’t be able to stand idly by.“The last government imposed a temporary tax on bonuses. I’m not going to take any options off the table.”However, aides to chancellor George Osborne yesterday played down suggestions the government would repeat Labour’s one-off bonus tax, which did little to restrain pay but did boost government coffers. Business secretary Vince Cable said banks were facing a “potential train crash” over bonuses, and warned the government could introduce a tax on profits or transactions.Meanwhile,?Labour mayoral hopeful Ken Livingstone suggested the London mayor should have powers to raise additional income tax, with the highest earners possibly paying an eye-watering rate of 80 per cent. “The mayor should have an income tax so you can redistribute wealth. Mrs Thatcher had a top rate of tax of 60 per cent for the first eight years and all these bankers were swarming here,” he said.“I think it would at least be a 60 per cent rate for everybody over £200,000. You might look at an 80 per cent rate for people earning £1m. These are exactly the people that have landed us in this mess.” center_img whatsapp Politicians target the City Show Comments ▼ Tuesday 21 September 2010 8:28 pm Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Enter Your Email Address Image: Next If I had £2,000 to invest in FTSE 100 stocks, I’d concentrate on the market’s tech leaders. With that in mind, here are two blue-chip stocks I believe are uniquely positioned to profit from the rise of technology. FTSE 100 tech stocks The first company on my list is Next (LSE: NXT). Some investors may be surprised to learn that this fashion business, which is traditionally associated with bricks-and-mortar retail stores, is actually one of the largest online retailers in the UK.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…Over the past decade, the company has invested hundreds of millions of pounds building out its online operation. It has built new warehouses and introduced systems and processes to help it prepare for the future.This investment paid off last year. The FTSE 100 group’s sales before the coronavirus crisis were equally distributed between physical and online. However, last year online sales eclipsed brick-and-mortar sales.While online sales may not continue to grow at the rate they did in 2020 as we advance, it’s clear e-commerce is here to stay. Companies not investing to capitalise on this will be left behind. Next’s management has also been making the most of the retail environment over the past 12 months to renegotiate rental contracts with landlords. This will push down the group’s overall cost base.Management’s forward-thinking is the primary reason why I’d include this FTSE 100 stock in my portfolio today. However, retail is incredibly competitive. Next has performed relatively well over the past 12 months, but many of its peers haven’t. As a result, the company needs to make sure it stays on top of market trends. If management starts to take the corporation’s success for granted, growth could grind to a halt. This is the most considerable risk facing the stock today. The future of retailBefore the pandemic, many analysts didn’t know what to make of Ocado (LSE: OCDO). The FTSE 100 company was spending hundreds of millions developing its robotic warehouses to process grocery orders. But, unfortunately, take-up was low, and profits were non-existent.That all changed last year. Demand for the company’s services exploded. Demand was so high, at one point, the group had to stop taking on new customers. I think the pandemic has shown how useful Ocado’s technology can be to other retailers. The company is also planning to expand its own operations in the UK using the customer goodwill built up over the past 12 months as a springboard. Still, despite the company’s potential, it remains highly speculative. It could be some time before Ocado earns a consistent profit. In the meantime, it’s fighting a lawsuit over the patents it uses for its automated warehouses. Losing this fight could have a severe impact on the firm’s growth. Even after taking these risks into account, I’d buy the FTSE 100 stock for my portfolio, considering the company’s growth potential. last_img read more

first_imgWhatsApp LifestyleEntertainmentFilmLimerickNewsVideoWatch: Matthew Modine interview – ‘To be a Human Being’By Editor – September 29, 2018 2556 TAGSActingClarefilmhuman beinglimerickMatthew Modinestephen wallis “That’s all I ever wanted to be was a human being because of a movie I saw called Little Big Man.”Matthew Modine sat down in Thornfields in County Limerick to recall the time he spent learning the art of acting and the how he spent his tender years in multiple homes.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up He recalled that his acting teacher Stella Adler told him when he first started out that she would not teach him to be a movie star, but rather to be a human being.He told the Limerick Post that in his early years he watched a movie called Little Big Man where the western expansion was shown from the perspective of the native Americans.The movie depicted the native Americans as victims of attacks by white cavalry, which the actor referred to as ‘barbaric’.“We were living in Utah at the time and I was going to school with a lot of Navajo Indians. I felt so ashamed of the colour of my skin for being a part of that history and that lineage,” Modine added.He told the Post he felt a burden of white man’s guilt and wanted to associate with the idea of being a ‘human being’ instead, which is what the native Americans called themselves in the film.“So when I came into the class and she [Stella Adler] said that if I’m lucky I’ll teach you to be a human being, she had no idea what that meant to me. I started crying and then she accepted me as a student.”Modine explained that growing up he did not have a place to call home for very long and instead spent his formative years moving from drive-in to drive-in.“We moved about every year and a half to a new drive-in and lived there for a little while and the economy collapsed around it. I lived in about 11 different homes growing up,” he said.Modine added that actors are often accused of being too liberal and said that it is often difficult not to be.“Atticus Finch in Harper Lee’s ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ says you never really understand a person until you get inside their skin and move around in it, and that’s what actors do.”He said that actors cannot help but become liberal because they have to try and understand why a person does what he or she does.“If it was Gary Oldman playing Winston Churchill you would try to understand his way of thinking, read his books, read books that have been written about him, look at decisions he made and those things tell you something about a man’s character,” Modine added.Matthew Modine is the youngest of seven children and has acted in films like Full Metal Jacket and The Dark Knight Rises.He is currently working on The Martini Shot in County Limerick and County Clare, directed by Stephen Wallis and is set to release in the autumn of 2019.

first_imgNotre Dame Police Department(NOTRE DAME, Ind.) — Police are asking for the public’s help in finding a University of Notre Dame student who was last seen Tuesday and is believed to be in “extreme danger.”Annrose Jerry, 21, has not been seen since 8:45 p.m. Tuesday at Coleman-Morse Hall on the Notre Dame, Ind., campus, located about 150 miles north of Indianapolis, according to a statement from the university.University police issued a Silver Alert for her Thursday evening, saying they believe she is “in extreme danger and may require medical assistance.”Police did not immediately respond to ABC News on Friday for more details.A spokeswoman for the university told ABC News there was no new information on Jerry’s disappearance.She is a senior at Notre Dame and resides on campus, the university said.Jerry is described as 5’5″ with dark hair. She was last seen wearing an ankle-length gray quilted coat over a multi-colored ankle-length skirt or dress.Anyone with information about her whereabouts is asked to call the Notre Dame Police Department at 574-631-5555.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

first_imgPhototreat/iStockBy QUINN OWEN and KIARA BRANTLEY-JONES, ABC News(NEW YORK) — The number of unauthorized crossing attempts by migrants at the southern border increased in July when President Donald Trump’s administration used a controversial public health order to rapidly send them back, citing COVID-19 concerns, according to data released by Customs and Border Protection Thursday.Last month, border agents conducted more than 35,000 rapid returns or “expulsions” of unauthorized migrants under the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s direction. Since the CDC order was first issued in March, immigration agents have used it more than 105,000 times.  “We’re trying to remove them as fast as we can to not put them in our congregate settings, to not put them into our system, to not have them remain in the United States for a long period of time, therefore increasing the exposure risk of everybody they come in contact with to include the work force of all those different entities that would be impacted,” Mark Morgan, the acting CBP commissioner, told reporters Thursday.Morgan said more than 90% of people subjected to the order were removed within two hours of their arrest by CBP. Others that qualified under the Convention Against Torture guidelines were referred to agents in citizenship and immigration services for humanitarian review.  Asked about plans to eventually end or scale back the order, Morgan deferred to the CDC.“They will be the ones that make the decision ultimately from a public health perspective,” Morgan said.This week, government lawyers defended ICE’s use of private hotels to hold minors before they’re sent back under the order, after ICE was accused of violating a decades-old court agreement that sets requirements for immigrant minors in custody.“DHS’s use of hotels to house minors pending their expulsion pursuant to the Title 42 process comports with CDC’s general guidance to detention facilities, which state that the ideal quarantine conditions are individual rooms with solid walls and a closed door,” the government said in a Tuesday court filing, citing Title 42, the United States Code dealing with public health, social welfare and civil rights which CBP says grants them the authority to quickly send migrants back across the border without a hearing in immigration court.Asked why the minors can’t be housed at the Office of Refugee Resettlement while following social distancing measures — the federal agency that typically houses unaccompanied minors and connects them with family or sponsors — Morgan said the risk to public health is too great.“If we introduce these individuals to ORR, we’re defeating the entire purpose of Title 42,” Morgan said. “We’re still introducing these individuals into our system throughout and creating a greater exposure risk to the American people.”More than 180 immigrant advocacy organizations and human rights groups — including Americans for Immigrant Justice, Center for Justice and International Law, Columbia Law School Immigrants’ Rights Clinic and Freedom Network USA — wrote to Chad Wolf, the acting secretary of Homeland Security, in April, urging him to end the practice.“The Trump Administration has proposed to expand the national security bar for asylum to include certain infectious diseases as a national security threat. During this time of pandemic, it would bar asylum seekers from countries where COVID-19 is prevalent,” Immigrant Legal Center tweeted Thursday.The Uncage Reunite Families Coalition held a press conference Thursday morning to call on Arizona’s congressional delegation to investigate the detention of unaccompanied minors at a Hampton Inn hotel in Phoenix.  Rep. Raquel Teran, D-Ariz., spoke at the presser and strongly criticized the Trump administration for its ill treatment of undocumented immigrant children. Teran cited major issues including the pandemic, systemic racism and the detainment of undocumented children, saying it all shows that the current administration is “[willing] to sacrifice children to further a heartless political agenda.”Eddie Chavez Calderon, the campaign organizer for Arizona Jews for Justice, spoke at the presser and called for advocacy groups to help migrant children, saying that action can be taken without government assistance. He also demanded that no children be deported by themselves.  “There is no moral high ground on this to counter,” said Calderon. “This is simply an ugly smudge on who we are right now… this is about revolution both morally and communal.”Members of the URFC called the detainment a violation of basic human rights and the law, alleging that taxpayer dollars are being used to keep the children detained in hotels without taxpayers knowing the full extent of how their money is being spent.The presser ended with a message asking citizens to call the House of Representatives to demand answers about the whereabouts of undocumented migrant children that have been deported and full reports about the conditions of the hotels where the children stayed.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
