However, the National Association of Landlords welcomed the plans, which were unveiled by energy secretary Chris Huhne, because there will be no crippling upfront costs for property owners. The government will provide landlords with loans to fund the improvements, which will be repaid by tenants via a levy on their energy bill. It is hoped that the levy will be offset by lower gas and electricity bills, which should fall as a result of the energy efficiency measures. Huhne said: “Landlords will face no upfront cost, and will benefit from an improved property. By 2015 every tenant should be able to be as warm as toast in their home.” Tuesday 2 November 2010 9:45 pm Tags: NULLcenter_img Landlords ordered to do green works whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

January rebound for UK after winter snow slump

first_img THE economy bounced back in January, expanding by 0.6 per cent, a Westminster-based economic think tank said yesterday.However, the UK is still in a “depression”, with GDP 4.5 per cent below its pre-recession peak, according to the National Institute for Economic and Social Research (NIESR).While the recession is over, the economy needs to improve its “flat” GDP to return to pre-recession levels, it said. The economy may not fully recover until 2013, NIESR forecast.January’s spike in output “is largely related to recovery from the impact of adverse weather at the end of last year,” NIESR said. whatsapp KCS-content Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodayUndoMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoWanderoamIdentical Twins Marry Identical Twins – But Then The Doctor Says, “STOP”WanderoamUndoSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesUndoBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItUndoZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen HeraldUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndo Tags: NULL Thursday 10 February 2011 8:15 pmcenter_img Share January rebound for UK after winter snow slump Show Comments ▼ Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’Sportsnaut whatsapplast_img read more

Best bookmaker for sports coverage

first_imgSports betting Offering a wide range of sports is important in helping pull in the punters. Bettingexpert.com runs the rule over which bookmakers offer the strongest coverage 9th April 2019 | By Stephen Carter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Tags: Online Gambling While football inevitably rules the roost in betting terms, offering a wide range of sports is important in helping pull in the punters. Leading tipster site bettingexpert.com runs the rule over which bookmakers offer the most comprehensive coverageMany factors beyond the odds on offer come in to play for punters when choosing which bookmaker to bet with, as evidenced by our analysis of these over the course of last year, from social media to customer service, live streaming and mobile functionality.The range of sports on offer is arguably just as important. Football of course remains the most common sport to bet on. But there are plenty of others that attract punters these days and it’s important to remember that not every bookmaker offers odds on every sport.We analysed 25 online bookmakers from the UK who are offering odds across 50 different sports.We took a look at the range of sports available to bet on at the industry’s top bookmakers. In this analysis we considered the sports on offer at the following operators:888sport Bet365 Bet-at-home Betfair Betfred Betsafe BetVictor Betway Boylesports ComeOn Coral EnergyBet GentingBet Ladbrokes LeoVegas Marathon Bet Matchbook Netbet Paddy Power Sky Bet Sportingbet Titanbet Unibet William Hill Winner SportsWe surveyed each bookmaker in our study daily from 15-29 March 2019, collating the number of sports with odds on offer. We also included non-sports categories such as entertainment, politics and entertainment sports, for example, professional wrestling).American football Athletics Australian football Badminton Bandy Baseball Basketball Beach soccer Beach volleyball Biathlon Bowls Boxing Chess Cricket Curling Cycling Cyclo-cross Darts eSports Entertainment Financials Floorball Football Futsal Gaelic football Gaelic hurling Golf Greyhounds Handball Hockey Horse racing Ice hockey MMA Motor racing Netball Olympics Politics Pool Rowing Rugby League Rugby Union Ski jumping Skiing Snooker Squash, Surfing Swimming Table tennis Tennis Trotting Volleyball Water polo Weightlifting Winter sports WWEAnd the winner is…There was quite a difference between the odds-providers on the list. Our research found that Coral and Unibet were king of the bookies in this regard, each offering odds on 39 different sports.888sport follows closely, offering 38 sports, while Bet365, LeoVegas, EnergyBet and NetBet all cover at least 36 sports.On average, from all the bookmakers and exchanges tested, it’s concluded that only 12 individual sports are offered, with Matchbook covering the least, while bet365 had the most.Beyond football: Most popular sports So which sports were offered by all bookmakers in our survey? Only 12 were offered across the board, albeit up from the nine when we last undertook this analysis in November of last year. Those 12 are:Australian football Basketball Boxing Cricket Cycling Darts Football Golf Motor racing Rugby union Snooker Tennis.There were also several sports which were offered by the vast majority of the 25 bookmakers surveyed. These included American football, entertainment, Gaelic games, greyhounds, horse racing, ice hockey, MMA and rugby league.The data illustrates how only a few sports are actually available at all bookmakers and it is safe to say these attract the majority of bets and revenues, yet, variety is a trait that can undoubtedly make bookmakers more interesting and attractive to punters.Top bookies for team sports Teamwork makes the dream work. It’s true in life just as much as in sport, which is why so many punters love the collaboration of team sports. The most popular sports on the planet are almost all team-based so it’s no surprise that a bookmaker comparison shows how many betting sites follow suit.Some bookmakers are certainly a bit better at it than others. Based on our findings, Coral came out on top by offering odds on 22 different team sports. There are another three sites which could be considered amongst the best bookmakers for team sports with EnergyBet, bet365, and Bet-at-home all offering odds on at least 20 team sports.Top bookies for individual sports When it comes to sports that are pursued and played by individuals, tied for first place were bet365, Unibet, and 888sport, each offering odds on 17 different individual sports. In second place, just one point short, were Coral, LeoVegas, and NetBet offering 16 of the 26 individual sports.The majority of bookmakers are offering between nine and 13. Non-team sports allow individuals to stand out from the pack and the same can be said for bookmakers.Top bookies for unconventional sports Not everyone enjoys betting on football, golf and tennis. Some people prefer to wager on more unconventional sports, so it is worth taking a look which bookmakers offer bets on those. Coral is the only bookmaker offering odds on beach volleyball, while Sportingbet was the only offering swimming.Other sports that can be bet on, only with a handful of bookmakers, are ski jumping, squash, and the Olympics. Although, that will certainly change as we get closer to Tokyo 2020.About bettingexpert.com Providing expert tips and in depth betting theory, bettingexpert.com is the world’s biggest social network of sports betting tipsters.

BT shares look cheap. I think there are better FTSE 100 stocks to buy though

first_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Like many other FTSE 100 shares, BT‘s (LSE: BT.A) have been crushed recently on the back of coronavirus uncertainty. Over the last month, its share price has declined from around 155p to 117p – a fall of roughly 25%. That’s the lowest level they’ve traded at since 2010.At 117p, BT shares look very cheap. With analysts forecasting earnings per share of 23.4p for the year ending 31 March, BT’s forward-looking P/E ratio is just 5. Its trailing dividend yield is 13%. 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…That said, I’m still not tempted to buy BT shares for my own portfolio. Here, I’ll explain why I think there are better FTSE 100 stocks to buy at the moment.A low-quality stockThe first thing that concerns me about BT is its huge debt pile. At 31 December, net debt stood at a whopping £18.2bn. By contrast, total equity on the balance sheet at 30 September was £10.3bn.I see this as a problem, as highly-leveraged companies tend to be more vulnerable during economic downturns. With the coronavirus threatening to derail global economic growth, I don’t think it’s the right time to be investing in a business with a weak balance sheet.My next concern is in relation to BT’s dividend. As I’ve said for a while now, I think there’s a good chance it will be cut in the near future, due to the company’s large debt pile and pension deficit. It appears City analysts agree with me.The consensus dividend forecasts for this financial year and next are 15.1p and 10.8p per share, lower than last year’s payout of 15.4p. I’d much rather buy a stock with healthy dividend growth prospects.Finally, recent results suggest BT is still struggling to generate any growth. For example, third-quarter results in late January showed a 2% drop in revenue for the nine months to 31 December.That was down to ongoing headwinds from regulation, competition, and legacy product declines, along with a 3% decline in adjusted EBITDA. I believe this lack of growth is likely to hamper share price growth in the near term.All things considered, I see BT Group as a low-quality stock. I think investors can do much better elsewhere.Better buysSo, what are some FTSE 100 stocks I’d buy over BT Group? Well, one I continue to hold in high regard (and bought more of for my own portfolio earlier this week) is Legal & General.It also trades at a rock-bottom valuation and offers a big yield (8.5%), yet appears to have much more momentum than BT. For example, the company recently reported a 16% jump in earnings per share for 2019. it also lifted its dividend by 7% – the 10th consecutive increase.Other FTSE 100 stocks I like the look of right now include Sage, JD Sports Fashion, and Rightmove. These companies may not be as cheap as BT, yet all three have attractive growth prospects and strong balance sheets, which leads me to believe they should be good investments over the long term.

A freelance journalist and columnist for L’Observateur, he is serving a four-year sentence for “libel” and inciting hate.”During his meeting with President Déby, Ménard discussed proposed amendments to the legislation governing the Chadian press. “We are going to make proposals to the media and journalists’ organisations and it is up to them to present them to the competent authorities,” Ménard said.He added: “The president of Chad recognises that journalists have problems in getting access to governmental news sources and he promised to change this.” Help by sharing this information last_img read more

Journalist held arbitrarily, Nord-Kivu authorities impose reporting blackout

first_img Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is extremely concerned about radio journalist Mapendo King’s detention for the past six days in Rutshuru Territory, a troubled region in the eastern province of Nord-Kivu, and calls for his immediate release.King has been held since 5 March, when members of the Armed Forces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (FARDC) based in the locality of Tongo stormed into his radio station, La Voix de Rutshuru, with the aim of arresting him.A few days later, he was placed in the custody of the military authorities in the town of Rutshuru, where he is currently held in a very basic cell pending transfer to Goma, 70 km away. In Goma he will be far from his family in a prison system where inmates depend on relatives to provide food and blankets.King is accused of spreading false information because he reported the presence of a Mai-Mai armed group (regarded as members of the Hunde ethnic group) near Tongo, where Hutus are in the majority. The chief of the locality ordered him to retract the report but he refused, insisting that he had verified it with a local source. It was because of this refusal that his arrest was ordered by the local security committee, which is headed by the same chief.“We call for Mapendo King’s immediate release,” said Cléa Kahn-Sriber, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “He is being held simply for doing his job as a journalist. He put out a report that he had verified and he refused to submit to political pressure. “Regardless of the accusations, he must be tried under the media law, and certainly not by a military court. His detention in these conditions is completely illegal and is designed to impose a blackout on coverage of security issues in Rutshuru Territory.”During a meeting yesterday, the Rutshuru Territory administrator issued an order banning the media from reporting any information involving the activities of the police, army or National Intelligence Agency (ANR). Since then, the territory’s six radio stations have ceased to broadcast any news for fear of reprisals.“We cannot work in such conditions,” a Rutshuru journalist told RSF on condition of anonymity. “We are constantly threatened. It is on the basis of what is reported on the radio that measures can be taken to protect civilians. If we don’t report exactions, the population will suffer.” February 18, 2021 Find out more to go further Journalist arrested on provincial governor’s orders RSF_en News February 16, 2021 Find out more Organisation News People fleeing Rutshuru, July 2012 Congolese reporter wounded by gunshot while covering protest in Goma Receive email alertscenter_img There has been a great deal of tension in recent months in Rutshuru Territory, which is riven by inter-ethnic discord.
