first_img Email Address 7th August 2020 | By contenteditor Paddy Power launches Missing People campaign with Motherwell AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Flutter Entertainment-owned Paddy Power has joined forces with the charity Missing People and Scottish Premier League football club Motherwell on a new campaign to help find missing people.Paddy Power placed cardboard cut-outs of blank silhouettes across the South Stand at Motherwell’s Fir Park home stadium to raise awareness of people who have gone missing.Some 1,190 silhouettes were installed in the stand, in addition to a number of banners that read “Paddy Power’s Missing Fans”.Cardboard cut-outs of fans have become commonplace in UK sporting venues during recent month, with supporters currently unable to attend events due to restrictions related to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.In addition to its in-stadium presence, Paddy Power will place posters of missing people across its 650 stores in the locations that they were last seen, in an effort to help find or establish the safety some of those who are missing.“We all know fans are missing from football at the moment, but some are missing from wider life, too,” Paddy Power spokesman said. “We hope this campaign, and striking image, can spark conversations across the country – as the majority of our customer base are young men, the demographic that’s most at risk of going missing.”Missing People chief executive Jo Youle added: “This is a highly visible and needed opportunity for families in communities across the UK to raise awareness of their missing loved one – at a time when it is so hard to search due to Covid-19 restrictions.“We will also be getting the message out via Paddy Power stores to reach a key group of people at higher risk of going missing: men aged 18-39.”Last July, Motherwell was one of a number of teams to sign up to Paddy Power’s ‘Save Our Shirt’ campaign, through which the bookmaker agreed to serve as the team’s title sponsor but not place its logo on players’ shirts.Despite the lack of shirt branding, Motherwell at the time said that the deal represented the largest jersey sponsorship in the club’s history.

first_imgInvesting £250 a month in a Stocks and Shares ISA could make you a millionaire. Here’s how See all posts by Matthew Dumigan Image source: Getty Images Investing in the stock market is one of the best ways to grow your savings over time. In fact, investing some of your cash each month is a tried and tested way to build wealth for the future. Start early enough and you can expect a tidy amount in your Stocks and Shares ISA after a decade or two. But if you’re a latecomer to the game, don’t worry. As the well-known saying goes, the best time to plant a tree was 20 years go. The second-best time is now.Investing little and oftenMany ISA providers allow you to invest from as little as £25 a month. So, regardless of the amount you have each month to invest, there’s no excuse not to get started. Attractive returns won’t necessarily come in the short term but, over time, your monthly investments will start to add up. After 30 or so years, your pot will have grown substantially.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…Moreover, investing every month can help smooth out the peaks and troughs of the stock market. This comes in especially handy in times of heightened share price volatility. Ultimately, investing monthly gives you a lower risk profile and you don’t have to worry about timing the market.The choice is yours as to whether you invest in individual shares or a straightforward index fund. In my opinion, if you’re a complete beginner it makes sense to invest in a low-cost tracker fund. That way, you have exposure to the entire market in one simple investment. Alternatively, building a basket of diversified individual shares is the best option if you’re looking to outperform the market.The importance of the Stocks and Shares ISARegardless of the strategy you deploy, the importance of investing in a Stocks and Shares ISA cannot be overstated. The ISA acts as a tax wrapper, and placing your investments inside one offers three main advantages. Namely, your profits, interest earned on bonds. and dividend income won’t be taxed. Who wouldn’t want to keep more of their returns anyway?In the short to medium-term, you’re unlikely to need these advantages thanks to the generous capital gains allowance on investments held outside an ISA. However, over time, as the value of your ISA grows, you’ll be thankful you opened one.Make a millionAccording to most experts, investing £250 a month is the sort of monthly amount required for a comfortable retirement. Let me demonstrate why. Assuming an annual return of 9%, after 35 years of investing £250 a month, your pot would be worth £678,250!What’s more, it’s worth noting that over the past 30 years, the FTSE 250 index has returned nearly 12% per annum. As such, if you were able to match that rate of return for the following 33 years, investing just £250 a month, your Stocks and Shares ISA would have a value of £1,092,919.

first_imgNews June 10, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Disturbing new regulations prior to Olympic Games, increased control in Sichuan Reporters Without Borders condemns new restrictions imposed on foreign visitors to China two months before the Olympic Games and on Chinese “fixers” working for foreign journalists. The authorities have also become more obstructive towards foreign journalists in Sichuan following protests by parents whose children were killed when schools collapsed in the earthquake. Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information June 2, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders is alarmed by the introduction of new rules aimed at reinforcing controls over Chinese “fixers” working for foreign journalists and over all foreigners visiting China during the Olympic Games. The organisation also condemns an increase in police controls of foreign journalists trying to cover protests by parents whose children were killed when schools collapsed in the Sichuan earthquake.”Any hope of seeing China calmly open up ahead of the Olympic Games is gradually vanishing,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The authorities have introduced regulations hostile to foreigners, who are suspected of wanting to disrupt the games, and are trying to impose greater controls on Chinese citizens working for foreign reporters. And, on the Propaganda Department’s initiative, the government is restricting the work of the Chinese and international press in Sichuan.””These measures, just two months ahead of the inauguration of the Beijing games, are bordering on paranoia and are a long way from the One World, One Dream slogan. We urge the International Olympic Committee to put pressure on the government to rescind some of these provisions and to ensure that the international press can work freely in Sichuan.”Reporters Without Borders added: “So far, the IOC has not reacted to these archaic regulations, preferring to issue a memo in May reminding national Olympic committees that their athletes should under no circumstances demonstrate at Olympic sites.”Control of Chinese fixersChinese citizens working for foreign news media must now comply with new rules designed to get them to register with the authorities. Reporters Without Borders has obtained a copy of the new rules, which were distributed by the CIECCO, a state entity that is supposed to help foreign companies, including news media, to find Chinese employees.The Beijing Organising Committee for the Olympic Games (BOCOG) has been insisting since January 2007 that the foreign media recruit professionals chosen by official intermediaries as translators. The latest rules want all Chinese working for the foreign media to be registered and suggest that the authorities should “select and name appropriate candidates” for the foreign media.If foreign journalists want to propose their own candidates, they must provide an ID, a curriculum vitae, evidence of no criminal record and a medical certificate. And a contract must be signed between employer and employee.The Foreign Correspondents Club of China told Reporters Without Borders that “hiring and registering assistants through government service agencies potentially increases bureaucracy, expense and oversight by the authorities.” The FCCC hopes the foreign media will eventually be able to hire Chinese as journalists, photographers or cameramen, but for the time being that is not allowed.Reporters Without Borders has also learned of a directive issued by the BOCOG media centre’s visa division telling journalists to submit precise information about coverage plans in China, including the places they want to visit and the people they want to interview, in order to obtain a J-2 visa, which is for media personnel who want to arrive before the 8 August start of the games. The BOCOG also requires a letter from an employer, which effectively eliminates freelancers.These new provisions come at a time when the issuing of multiple-entry visas is being restricted and obtaining tourist or business visas is taking much longer, even through Hong Kong. The government refuses to explain this tougher policy, which seems to be linked to fear of demonstrations during the games.Call to order for foreignersThe BOCOG issued a set of guidelines for foreigners visiting the games on 2 June. In a question-and-answer format and so far only in Chinese, the guidelines tell foreigners they “must respect Chinese laws while in China and must not harm China’s national security or damage the social order.”They say “terrorists,” sex workers, drug traffickers, people suffering from AIDS or tuberculosis and “subversives” are banned from entering China. Some of the guidelines directly target those who would like to demonstrate during the games. “Public gatherings, marches and demonstrations cannot take place without prior permission from the police.” They also restrict freedom of opinion, forbidding foreigners from bringing with them documents, disks or audio recordings critical of China.Media obstructed in SichuanBecause of the anger of the parents of children killed in schools in Sichuan, the authorities have tended to obstruct the work of the foreign media in the province. On 6 June, two Agence France-Presse journalists were prevented from entered Wufu, a city where demonstrations took place after a primary school collapsed.Foreign reporters were briefly detained and expelled on 5 June from Juyuan and Hanwang, two towns where schools collapsed. Photographers were removed from a demonstration by about 100 parents in Dujiangyan on 3 June, and a reporter and photographer from the Japanese news agency Kyodo were detained for several hours. According to the FCCC, two Dutch journalists were stopped by the police when they tried to go to Dujiangyan.The Chinese press has been forbidden to cover the collapsed schools story freely. Chinese journalists told the New York Times that the order came from Beijing. The website of the Hong Kong-based China Media Project ( reported that the Guangdong province Communist Party’s propaganda ordered the local media to pull their journalists out of Sichuan. The site also reported that Li Changchun, the Communist Party’s propaganda chief, went to Sichuan.The public security department has been told to put a stop to the “illegal gatherings” and to pressure the families of victims to stop talking to the foreign press. State media propaganda continues to praise the government’s efforts. State-owned CCTV’s website even went so far as to portray a demonstration in homage to the victims of the Tiananmen Square massacre of 4 June 1989 as a homage to the victims of the 12 May earthquake.Finally, BOCOG intransigence on security issues is giving rise to tension with international TV stations that acquired broadcasting rights. The Associated Press reported on 8 June that there were angry tensions at a meeting in Beijing at the end of May between the BOCOG, the IOC and international TV stations over China’s refusal to permit live coverage of events in certain places such as Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, and delays in granting permission for broadcast equipment.

first_imgNews UpdatesBombay High Court Asks Lawyer To Make Test Call To Pune COVID Control Room To Check Bed Availability Sharmeen Hakim12 May 2021 10:02 PMShare This – xAfter a test call was made to the COVID control room of Pune, the Bombay High Court was informed that there were no ventilator beds available in Pune.A bench comprising Chief Justice Dipankar Dutta and Justice GS Kulkarni was dealing with the Covid -19 situation in Pune, as it has earlier observed that the active cases in Pune are more than double of the active cases in Mumbai.Pune Municipal Corporation’s counsel Abhijit Kulkarni submitted that the city has everything in control and was catering to at least 30% of patients visiting from outside. He said that as of May 9, the district has 28,431 hospitalised cases of covid-19 and over 68,000 patients in-home quarantine. Out of this, Pune City has close to 8,000 people in hospitals. He submitted that PMC had increased the number of beds from 4,000 in February to 12,000 in May.Advertisement Kulkarni submitted two numbers with 18 lines in the 24/7 Corona Control Room. Advocate Inamdar opposed Kulkarni’s claims and said ICU beds were not available.The bench then asked Inamdar to call the Control Room and put the handset on a loud- speaker. The lady on the opposite line said there was no ventilator bed available when he called.Kulkarni attempted to say that Inamdar’s tone was confrontational. However, the response from the control room was the same even when the bench asked a few doctors present during the proceeding to call.Advertisement “If someone calls in distress, the call centre should ask for the details,even that was not done,” Justice Kulkarni remarked.”These matters require intense sensitivity. The commissioner should know that his job isn’t over by just filing an affidavit. The (Pune) corporation has to ensure that the people for whom the corporation exists are treated with sensitivity,” the bench added.Kulkarni said he would brief the officers accordingly.Advertisement Advertisement The Court also pointed out an India today report on the sorry situation on Palghar.”Mr Pankaj Upadhyay is a reporter. He visited Palghar. What we saw was unbelievable. At the Palghar hospital, there were no beds, no facilities. Patients are lying on the floor. It was an eye-opener,” Justice Kulkarni said.”You will have to stop the infection at the threshold,” the CJ told the State, “We have taken stock of the situation in MMR; now we’ll be moving towards the rural areas. There is nothing on record about rural areas.”The case will now be heard on May 19.Tags#Bombay High Court Pune COVID -19 Chief Justice Dipankar Dutta Justice GS Kulkarni Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
