Around 200 jobs will be saved thanks to the deal.A Deloitte spokesman said: “We are currently engaged in a range of discussions regarding the sale of the remaining 48 open stores and are confident of an imminent deal.”Oddbins has an annual turnover of £75m, including £2m of online sales.Chatha has already proved he can turn around failing off-licences. When Unwins collapsed, he snapped up 12 branches for his Whittall’s stores, which he acquired in 1999.He started his business empire from scratch with a cash and carry operation in Halifax.First Quench Retailing, owner of Oddbins’ rivals Threshers and Wine Rack, went into administration in 2009. whatsapp Tuesday 26 April 2011 8:56 pm Oddbins sells 37 stricken stores to Whittall’s Sharecenter_img whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikealldelishHere is what happens to your body when you start eating 2 eggs every dayalldelishHealth.recetasget5 Common Cancer Signs to Pay Attention ToHealth.recetasgetInvestment GuruRemember Cote de Pablo?

Forget buy-to-let: 3 reasons why I’d rather invest in FTSE 100 property shares

first_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Forget buy-to-let: 3 reasons why I’d rather invest in FTSE 100 property shares Buy-to-let property is a popular choice with Britons wanting to build a retirement nest egg. But I think that the good times for buy-to-let investors are over, at least for new landlords.The last few years have seen the government reduce the amount of mortgage tax relief available to landlords. Second home buyers now have to pay an extra 3% in stamp duty as well. And high house prices mean that rental yields have also come under pressure.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…Established landlords with several homes and small mortgages should continue to do well. But for first-timers, I think it makes more sense to invest in property stocks at the moment.Easy diversificationFor many of us, one buy-to-let property is the limit of what we could afford, even with the help of a mortgage. This means that even quite small problems can result in a cash loss for the year.By contrast, FTSE 100 property stocks such as British Land, Land Securities and Segro own large portfolios of property. Problems with one site — or one tenant — should only have a small impact on overall rental income and annual profits.Buy the bestAs private investors, investing directly in top-end commercial property is impossible. We don’t have the kind of money required to buy a seat at that table.In reality, most buy-to-let landlords restrict themselves to mid-market residential properties.That’s okay, but it means missing out on the opportunity to invest in high-growth areas such as logistics property. It also means that you won’t be able to invest in prime London sites, such as City office blocks and top-end retail property.I invest in property stocks because they give me exposure to a diversified mix of good quality locations that I couldn’t otherwise own. I see this as a big attraction.Low cost and hassle-freeEven in a good year, most rental properties will need money spending on maintenance and repairs. You also face the risk of being stuck with bad tenants who fall behind on rent or neglect their home.Each time your existing tenants move out, you have to find new ones yourself or pay a letting agent to do it for you. In addition, you’ll need buildings insurance and perhaps other maintenance contracts, such as boiler servicing and repair. Owning a house is expensive, whether you live in it or rent it out.But owning shares is incredibly cheap. Inexpensive online stockbrokers tend to average about £10 per trade these days. Stamp duty on share purchases is just 0.5%, compared to between 3% and 15% for rental property.These stocks could provide a tax-free incomeAssuming your shares are held in a tax-free Stocks and Shares ISA, most property stocks will provide you with a tax-free dividend payment every six months.For example, FTSE giant Landsec currently offers a forecast yield of almost 4.8%, while British Land has a 2020 forecast yield of 5%. Both shares trade at an attractive discount to their book value, providing some protection against falling prices.Logistics specialist Segro is a little more expensive. Booming demand for e-commerce warehouses has pushed up prices and SGRO stock now trades 33% above its book value. I wouldn’t buy at this level, but if you think the logistics property boom has further to run, there could still be an opportunity here. Roland Head owns shares of British Land Co.

The new tax year is fast approaching and that means I’m looking for the best shares to buy in my Stocks and Shares ISA for 2021–22. I like to invest close to the start of the tax year to give my stocks more time to grow and compound. But this isn’t always possible as I may not find suitable shares that fit my criteria.However, this year there are several options I would consider. A stock market correction in the US technology sector led many high-growth technology stocks to decline in recent months. Concerns of rising inflation reduced investor sentiment for big US technology shares. For long-term investors, this has created some opportunities, in my opinion.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 shares to buy in the technology sectorOne such opportunity is Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA). Nvidia is a leading designer of graphics processing units used in a variety of industries including gaming, data centres, artificial intelligence, and even mining for cryptocurrencies.It’s not just a high-growth technology stock, but also a high-quality and founder-led operator. Sales and earnings are also expected to grow by double-digits over the next few years.Nvidia’s end markets are in structurally growing sectors that could require more and more complex processing capabilities in the future. This is where Nvidia is well-placed to reap the rewards and what I think makes it one of the best shares to buy for my ISA.Investing in high-growth technology stocks like Nvidia is not without risks, however. Sentiment towards the sector could remain weak for some time. After a strong rise in share price in the first half of 2020, shares have remained relatively flat for the past seven months.There also don’t seem to be any significant near-term catalysts that could propel the stock in the near term. This may not be an issue for long-term investors, but shorter-term investors should be aware of this factor.The growing communications marketI consider Twilio (NYSE: TWLO) as another one of the best shares to buy for my new ISA. Twilio is a communications platform that provides developers with a way to integrate communications and messaging functionality into existing software applications.Many of us may have used this functionality without realising. One example, is ride-hailing taxi drivers that can communicate with passengers without revealing private phone numbers. Twilio’s addressable market is large and growing. It’s expected to grow from $62bn in 2020 to $87bn in 2023, and Twilio has barely scratched the surface so far. I think that many businesses will increasingly want to have personalised communications with their customers in the coming years.I continue to believe that the best shares to buy are in founder-led companies, and Twilio ticks this box. Jeff Lawson, co-founder and CEO of Twilio, has a shareholding in the company and continues to have ‘skin in the game’.Although Twilio has significant prospects for future growth, there are some risks to be aware of. The share price gained 245% in 2020 and sentiment towards the technology sector could remain weak in the near term. As with many software companies, valuation could also be a concern. Any slowdown in growth in the short term could have an adverse reaction to its share price.Nonetheless, as a long-term investor, I’m happy to consider an investment in this innovative, fast-growing, and cash-generative communication software business.

Should the Six Nations have relegation?

first_imgOr let’s take it up a notch, and say if you are handed the wooden spoon three times on the trot, you enter a play-off against the team with the most points over the past three European Nations Cups. Everyone will have an idea of how to make it fair, I’m sure, but the point remains – ring-fencing the Six Nations is never going to help the smaller European nations develop.One last point, why can’t the home nations head east on their summer tours for a change? Yes, the odd venture to Argentina and USA is great for marketing purposes, and of course you want a crack at a New Zealand or an Australia on their own turf, but should we find room in the calendar for England, Ireland, Wales or Scotland to head to Eastern Europe, and with reduced travel, play more than one side. Russia, Germany, Romania, Spain and the aforementioned Georgians are all desperate to play the big boys – giving them a shot once every four years just isn’t good enough. REMEMBER LIFE before the 2007 World Cup? It was a simpler, less complex time, when the Six Nations teams dominated the northern hemisphere and the power triumvirate of New Zealand, Australia and South Africa bestrode the game below the equator. Then Argentina up and under-ed their way past France and into a semi-final, Ireland scraped past Georgia and Fiji saw off Wales in an epic encounter for the neutral.Fast-forward seven years and that could be pinpointed as the moment everything changed and the minnows scrapped their way onto the top table, even if they were just feeding off the scraps.Only that’s what we hoped in an idealistic rugby utopia, yet nothing has really changed, has it? Of course, we all stood by and applauded when the Tri-Nations became the Rugby Championship in opening its doors to Los Pumas, and when New Zealand confirmed their first-ever Test visit to Samoan soil – admittedly fter much chiding – we sat back at a job well done at our inclusive nature.Catch me if you can: Izzy Folau gives the Pumas the runaround in The Rugby ChampionshipBut what about closer to home? Well, five became six back in 2000. Italy has undoubtedly helped the tournament grow and Rome is now a much loved destination for the fans, but I don’t think we should stop there. Of course I’m not after a Ten Nations but relegation and promotion in the Six Nations has to be considered.There are issues, of course – there always are – with the European Nations Cup (the Six Nations second division to you and I) taking place over two seasons instead of one, and of course the federations that control the home nations are hardly going to be tripping over themselves to promote it, but surely we should be moving mountains to give teams a shot at the top table. Georgia’s Mamuka Gorgodze gets to grips with Romania Viorel Lucaci in the European Nations Cup With Argentina just about to enter their third Rugby Championship, Mark Coughlan argues it’s about time we in the Northern Hemisphere considered a more meritocratic Six Nationscenter_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Take Georgia, for example. A side growing in stature year on year. They lie less than a point behind Italy in the IRB rankings and Mamuka Gorgodze was named the best foreigner in the Top 14 in 2011, while seven of their current squad play in the same league. Indeed the Georgians have now topped the second-tier tournament for six of the last seven years, and completed another ‘Grand Slam’ this season.On thin ice: Italy are now less than a point above Georgia in the IRB rankingsWould anyone begrudge the Georgians a two-legged play-off against an Italian side that lost every game they played in this year’s Six Nations, or are we accepting a glass ceiling for a ‘developing nations’ is meritocratic. If Italy beat Georgia, then nobody can complain, but if the Georgians can prove they belong in the top tier, why not give them a season to prove it? Italy spend a year playing against smaller nations and – if they’re good enough – get their chance to earn their place back in the top tier next time out. Just imagine the excitement surrounding a Six Nations play-off.last_img read more

Florida bill establishing minimum arrest age of 7-years-old advancing in both…

first_img Please enter your name here By John Haughey, The Center SquareA Florida House panel Thursday approved a proposed bill to establish a minimum arrest age of 7-years-old unless the child commits a “forcible felony.”“In Florida, there is no statute specifying any minimum age for arrest, which means there is nothing legally preventing a preschooler, two-and-a-half years-old, from being arrested,” bill sponsor Rep. Patricia Williams, D-Ft. Lauderdale, told the House Criminal Justice & Public Safety Subcommittee.The proposal is not motivated by politics but “#commonsense,” she added.Williams’ House Bill 303 advanced in a 16-1 vote despite several Republicans expressing reservations about forcing law enforcement officers to make snap judgments about a child’s age when responding to an incident.The bill’s next, and last, stop before reaching the House floor is the Judiciary Committee.HB 303’s Senate companion, Senate Bill 626, sponsored by Sen. Randolph Bracy, D-Orlando, is set for a second Senate hearing before the Criminal Justice Committee Tuesday.Referring to the much-publicized September 2019 arrest of a 6-year-old girl after throwing a “temper tantrum” at an Orlando-area elementary school, Williams said 22 states have minimum arrest ages ranging from 6-years-old in North Carolina to 12-years-old in California and Michigan.“I would love us have to have 12” be the minimum age but it was “negotiated down to 7,” a concession that garnered support from House Speaker Chris Sprowls, R-Palm Harbor, she said.“Make Florida the next state to establish a minimum arrest age aimed at protecting our young children,” Williams said.Rep. Spencer Roach, R-North Ft. Myers, said a minimum arrest age puts law enforcement officers in a difficult position.“How is the officer supposed to determine the age of a child in, sort of, the heat of the battle, and know when they can or cannot act?” asked Roach, a former law enforcement officer who cast the lone dissenting vote. “My concern is that we’re putting law enforcement officers in a really untenable position.”“If you’re a trained officer,” Williams responded, “you’re trained to deescalate certain things, and if you can’t control a 6-, 7-, 8-, 9-, 10-year-old, I have questions about you being a police officer.”Florida Smart Justice Alliance Vice-Chair Barney Bishop was the only speaker to testify against HB 303.The alliance “opposes this bill for a very good reason – because this bill is letting you think this is just about kids who are misbehaving” but “that’s not indicative of what is happening in our state.”Bishop said in fiscal year 2017, 170 Florida children younger than 9 were arrested. The following year, 129 children younger than 9 were arrested.“Almost all were for felonies – felonies,” he said.“What age does a child’s behavior demand they be treated like a criminal?” he said. “This isn’t about temper tantrums. This is about arresting children who are a danger to themselves and others.”Bishop, a former Associated Industries of Florida (AIF) president/CEO, drew heated criticism during a Feb. 17 hearing on Roach’s college free speech proposal, HB 233, when he said hate groups like the KKK deserve equal protection under the First Amendment, even on historically Black college and university campus.His Thursday’s comments drew similar rebuke.“I cannot believe we’re having this conversation,” said Rep. James Bush, D-Opa Locka. “To set some minds at ease that are concerned about somebody coming in with a weapon or a baseball bat or attacking somebody or whatever, they can still be arrested even if they’re 4” because that qualifies as a “forcible felony.”“We say teenagers are not developed until they’re 25, and we’re talking about putting a 6-year-old in jail in handcuffs,” said Rep. Dianna Hart, D-Tampa. “This is crazy, honestly.” Reply Joanne Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Please enter your comment!

If a child sees fighting and violence in their home, that’s all they know! If a child sees their Dad with a gun, that’s what they learn! If parents leave their weapons around for children to use they should get arrested! Get the child some help but don’t arrest them and throw them in jail at 7 years old!

The National Health Mission of Madhya Pradesh Selects Glocal Healthcare Systems to Bring Telehealth…

first_img WhatsApp Twitter Pinterest Twitter Local NewsBusiness Facebook The National Health Mission of Madhya Pradesh Selects Glocal Healthcare Systems to Bring Telehealth to 13.75 Million Citizens in the Republic of India By Digital AIM Web Support – January 27, 2021 center_img TAGS  Facebook KOLKATA, India & PALO ALTO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jan 27, 2021– Glocal Healthcare Systems (or Glocal), the comprehensive technology based healthcare system that spans from brick and mortar to digital, from villages to metros and from primary care to tertiary care, today announced the awarding of 550 new locations for Primary Health Centers (PHCs) by the National Health Mission of Madhya Pradesh. The telemedicine centers will be developed to serve a mainly rural population of approximately 13.75 million. Each PHC will be strategically located to provide health services to underserved communities of approximately 25,000 people. Glocal’s model was designed to meet the United Nations goal to increase access to healthcare in a sustainable fashion worldwide. When fully implemented, Glocal will serve as one of the largest telehealth providers worldwide. Syed Sabahat Azim, MD, Founder and CEO of Glocal and Chief Executive Officer, International of UpHealth said, “The need for integrated, sustainable solutions in healthcare continues to be a challenge not only in India but in developed and lesser developed nations. We honoured to partner with the National Health Mission of Madhya Pradesh and we look forward to bringing our urgently needed, life changing results to millions.” Chhavi Bhardwaj, MD, National Health Mission of Madhya Pradesh stated, “We are more than pleased to partner with Glocal as they expand access to better healthcare, especially in the underserved rural areas of Madhya Pradesh. We envision a public/private collaboration, using state-of-the-art technology, that meets the healthcare needs of many, without the need for extensive travel. This initiative, under the guidance of the Hon’ble Minister and as per the vision of the Hon’ble Chief Minister is to ensure that people in rural parts of the state get access to specialist doctors and we hope that this program will be very successful.” The State of Healthcare in Madhya Pradesh: In Madhya Pradesh, as in too many rural places around the world, healthcare infrastructure is quite poor, and ailing patients often travel miles to access healthcare services in the nearby towns or cities. This leads to consumption of both time and money. In many cases the patients’ health deteriorates due to long travel in public transport. As per 2018 data (NHP 2018), there were only 4593 doctors in Madhya Pradesh public facilities. While the World Health Organization recommends that the doctor: patient ratio should be 1:1000, in Madhya Pradesh the ratio is 1: 17192 (based on Government facility doctors). Moreover, the data also indicates that 37% of the doctors’ post were vacant and 13% of the PHCs were without a doctor. The problem worsens when the out-of-pocket expenditure (OOP) is considered. Studies demonstrate that the on an average, a patient spends ₹574 (US $7.85) per episode on OOP. The cost-of-service delivery averages ₹604 (US $8.26), therefore, the gross cost of OPD, per episode, is well above ₹1100 (US $15.05) making it extremely unaffordable. The unavailability of good quality-of-care in public facilities together with the high OOP drives away the rural patient to seek healthcare from expensive private facilities. This contributes to the increase in rural poverty and rise in both morbidity and mortality. The Government of Madhya Pradesh’s vision is to ensure equity in healthcare with access to good quality healthcare for everyone. It is leveraging technology to ensure universal healthcare. This program is part of this vision. Glocal’s Solution: Glocal is a state-of-the art service delivery solution which is not only affordable, but is seamlessly available during working hours across the selected PHCs and ensures a high quality of care through qualified and experienced specialists. The telemedicine network shall be set-up to provide services of General Medicine, Obstetrics & Gynecology and Pediatrics. Glocal anticipates providing healthcare to about 50 patients daily from each of these 550 PHCs.
