Funds will also have to inform employees of portfolio companies of their plans.The head of the British Venture Capital Association (BVCA) warned the directive, which will also impose restrictions on remuneration and tough new capital requirements, risks undermining the economic recovery.The Alternative Investment Fund Managers (AIFM) directive will also force hedge funds and private equity houses to comply with a costly registration regime before they can market funds in the EU. Simon Walker slammed the “defective directive”, saying Brussels should instead be fostering the industry as a means of shoring up the economy. He said the new rules are “an act of folly akin to a drowning man waving away a rescue boat because he did not like the colour”.A compromise deal struck means companies that have completed the registration process will be allowed to market their funds across Europe, rather than having to apply to each individual country, as France was pushing for. Walker said: “This remains a defective directive. The EU has taken a hostile interest in the wrong industry at the wrong time and for the wrong reasons. No serious analyst has concluded that private equity, let alone venture capital, caused the crisis or served to enhance it. These regulations will needlessly increase costs.”The directive is expected to be approved by the European Parliament next month. The final draft was bogged down for months as EU governments and the European Parliament fail to agree on a common text, with the UK’s laissez-faire attitude clashing with France’s approach. London scored a partial victory, with the legislation allowing non-European domiciled funds – including most UK funds, which are based offshore for tax purposes – to apply for a “passport” allowing them the same pan-European marketing rights as their EU-based counterparts.

LinkedIn, the professional networking site, is expected to reach a valuation of around $2bn after filing plans for an IPO. And Facebook has been valued at a staggering $50bn after Goldman placed a number of its privately held shares. Facebook brought in revenues of around $2bn last year.Facebook shares are now said to be selling for over $55 on trading sites for high net worth investors such as SharesPost.com, which would value the company at $124bn.Deal website Groupon rejected a $6bn bid from Google last year.DST and Spotify both declined to comment.Sweden-based Spotify, which will soon announce a deal with music giant EMI to stream its music, counts Hong Kong billionaire Li Ka-Shing among its investors.The service offers online access to millions of music tracks, which consumers can also buy.

Looking for UK shares to buy? I’d start with these FTSE stocks

first_img If you’re thinking about buying UK shares, you have plenty to choose from. The FTSE 100 has fallen by roughly 19% year-to-date, meaning that there is a chance to snap up bargain stocks.However, there is also a risk of danger. Most industries have been negatively affected by the coronavirus pandemic. Choosing the wrong stock could mean losing money.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…I’ve identified two UK shares that I would buy and hold for the long term. I believe they will benefit from the economy’s likely future recovery.A great UK share to buy and hold now?When Greggs (LSE: GRG) reopened stores after the lockdown measures were eased, many branches had queues around the block. People were excited to buy its baked products. Such is the love the UK has for its sausage rolls, including the plant-based version.However, the Greggs share price has fallen by 37% year-to-date, making its price-to-earnings ratio just 16. I think this indicates it is an undervalued UK share and could be worth buying.We’ll need to wait until the 28 July to see how sales have been affected, when the company releases its latest results for the 26 weeks to 27 June. I imagine the reading will be bleak, as it will cover the imposed UK lockdown period. I don’t doubt it will take a while for sales to return to normal levels. However, I have hope that the market might be pricing Greggs a tad pessimistically.If investors want to snap up the shares before the latest results are released, it is also worth noting that reopened stores have reduced the range of products being offered, to help with meeting social distancing guidelines. However, if you are feeling a bit bullish about Greggs’ sales since the reopening of its stores – like I am – this could be one of the best UK shares to buy now before its stock price potentially surges.ITV share priceWhile many industries have struggled during the coronavirus lockdown period as people stay at home, one area that has flourished is streaming services. Fellow-Fool Jabran Khan notes that it’s estimated that there were nearly 6m new subscribers to streaming services during the lockdown period.This might explain why, the ITV (LSE: ITV) share price, has dropped by roughly 58% year-to-date. ITV is more of a traditional TV offering and UK subscribers are buying into online viewing platforms.As budgets come under strain, advertising revenue will be affected by the coronavirus outbreak. The drop in the studio segment of the business will be due to a halt with much of the production work.I think the market is pricing ITV unfairly. It has an extensive back-catalogue of shows and formats it can sell or license. The business is also making an effort with its own ITV Hub and launching Britbox with the BBC.For long-term investors, now could be a chance to buy shares in a great UK company right now, while the stock price is cheap. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

Top stocks for an ISA! 3 reasons why I’d buy the best UK shares with big dividends today Buying the best UK shares that offer generous dividends may not seem like a sound move after the recent stock market crash. After all, the political and economic outlook is uncertain, and investor sentiment could easily deteriorate in the coming weeks.However, high-yield stocks could become more popular in a low interest rate environment. Furthermore, high-quality FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares could survive a weak outlook and improve on their market positions.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…Meanwhile, today’s low stock prices may present capital appreciation potential over the long run. As such, buying a diverse range of stocks in an ISA may prove to be a profitable move.Investing money in UK shares with big dividendsThe stock market crash means many UK shares now offer relatively impressive passive incomes. Their lower share prices mean their dividend yields have risen so that they offer 5%+ income returns, in many cases.These high yields could become increasingly popular over the coming years. Interest rates look set to remain at a low level for a prolonged period of time. The weak economic outlook has the potential to encourage an even more accommodative monetary policy in the medium term. This could mean the return prospects for cash and bonds decline even further.The end result could be rising demand for UK shares with generous dividend yields. This may lead to improving share price performances. And that could deliver an impressive total return for investors in today’s high-yield British shares.Buying the best sharesThe best UK shares are likely to survive the coming economic challenges. For example, they’re likely to have strong balance sheets that mean they can overcome a period of lower sales. Similarly, their economic moats are likely to mean they can sustain stronger performance than their sector peers. This may even lead to a stronger market position over the long term at the expense of weaker rivals.Of course, identifying the best stocks to buy today is a subjective task. However, an investor can build an accurate picture of a company’s strengths and weaknesses by focusing on its fundamentals via annual reports and regular market updates.Cheap shares after the stock market crashThe stock market crash has caused many UK shares to trade at cheap prices. History suggests that they may not be available for a prolonged period of time, since today’s bull market is likely to ultimately be sustained over the long run.As such, buying a diverse range of FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares today could lead to impressive returns over the long run. They may have a large amount of capital appreciation potential from their low base. This could catalyse an ISA’s performance in the coming years and lead to impressive total returns.

Harlequins confirm departing players following Ruaridh Jackson signing

first_imgWednesday May 4, 2016 Harlequins confirm departing players following Ruaridh Jackson signing Yesterday it was confirmed that flyhalf Ruaridh Jackson will be leaving Wasps for Harlequins at the end of the season. Today Harlequins have confirmed who will be leaving the club, as Ben Botica moves to Montpellier in France.Fly-half Ben Botica will join Top 14 side Montpellier as they replace the Toulon-bound Francois Trinh-Duc. Botica joined Harlequins for the 2012/13 season and made an immediate impact, notably during his Heineken Cup debut, kicking 19 points in the victory over Biarritz.In the last four seasons the 26 year-old has made 93 appearances, scoring 544 points. He was an integral member of the 2013 LV= Cup winning side and made nine consecutive 80 minute performances this season in the absence of Nick Evans.Commenting on his departure, the jovial back said: “It was a very hard decision for me to leave Harlequins. The last four years, in terms of my development as a player, have been priceless. Being around such a great group, in playing ability and as people, is something you can’t buy.“Had it not been for Conor calling me up four years ago in New Zealand, I don’t know where I would be with my rugby career, so I’m truly grateful to the Club for the opportunity they gave me having not seen too much of me.“It’s beginning to hit home how much I will miss this Club and the people associated with it. I’ve been given a new and exciting challenge in France with Montpellier, but my immediate focus is to help Harlequins finish top six and win European silverware.”Scrum-half Tito Tebaldi will return to Italy to play for Guinness Pro 12 side Treviso. Having played eight times for the Cub this season, Tebaldi played an integral role while Karl Dickson and Danny Care were absent from the squad due to injury and international selection.Kieran Treadwell will leave the Academy after two seasons to join Ulster. The second row, qualified to play for Ireland, joins the Irish side on a two year deal.Injury dispensation signings Beau Robinson and Sam Egerton bolstered the squad during an injury hit part of the season and made valuable contributions in the Aviva Premiership.First year Academy member Luke White will also leave the Club. The fly-half, who was dual registered with Dorking, helped Harlequins to the Finals of the Singha Premiership Rugby Sevens last August.Confirming the departing players, Director of Rugby Conor O’Shea said: “On behalf of everyone at Harlequins I would like to thank Ben, Tito, Kieran, Beau, Sam and Luke. They have each made their own mark on the Club in the day to day environment and during testing times on the field.“I know everyone at Harlequins is grateful to them and I would like to wish them the best of luck in their future careers.”Regarding leaving Wasps for Harlequins, Scotsman Ruaridh Jackson said:“It was an extremely tough decision to leave Wasps having loved my two years here. It’s a club on the up, playing great rugby, but I feel this move is the best decision for my career.“I’d like to thank Dai (Young, coach) especially for understanding my decision and letting me go, and wish the very best to everyone associated with the club.”ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Harlequins , Transfers Related Articles 67 WEEKS AGO Harlequins snatch controversial victory over… 310 WEEKS AGO Harlequins 2015/16 Aviva Premiership fixtures… 313 WEEKS AGO A life in Quarters: Farewell to George Robson,… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The completed scheme consists of a new apartment building of 14 one and two bedroom flats above a ground floor restaurant with a single storey clear glass structure linking it to the carefully restored Hall; all three elements of the ground floor (new building, glass link, St Botolph’s Hall) form a single restaurant unit. The two new buildings now form a pair which sit with a real sense of presence among their much more substantial neighbours. Save this picture!©  Mikael SchillingPlanning Constraints The listed hall sits as one of the few remaining historic elements of Victorian Spitalfields. Its status as a “cause celebre” in the campaign to save historic Spitalfields has afforded it protection beyond its Grade II listing. Proposals for the hall’s re-use involved detailed proposals for repair of the historic fabric, including strategies for terracotta cleaning, plaster reinstatement and a full servicing strategy for the restaurant, to demonstrate minimum impact on both the internal and external fabric of the building. The new building adjacent was designed to make reference to the listed hall but allow it space to be seen as a stand-alone building once more. It was also critical that the new building made a genuine contribution to the new commercial cityscape and helped to define the recently completed public plaza of Bishops Square.Project gallerySee allShow lessAustralia House Proposal / Andrew Burns ArchitectArticlesPortuguese architect Paulo David selected as 2012 Alvar Aalto Medal recipientArticlesProject locationAddress:London, UKLocation to be used only as a reference.

The Children’s Home of the Future combines the traditional home’s safe environment with new pedagogical ideas and conceptions of what a modern children’s home is and which needs it should fulfil.Save this picture!© Mikkel FrostThe vision for the new institution is to establish a care centre that encourages social relations and a sense of community while at the same time accommodating the children’s individual needs – a place that they are proud to call their home and prepares them for their future path in life in the best possible way. The physical surroundings reflect a practice-oriented pedagogic approach so that the architecture actively supports the staff’s daily work with children, who struggle with behavioural, social and mental health problems.Save this picture!DiagramA place like homeWhether you look at children’s drawings or a web browser’s stylised icon, at all ages we recognise and use the rectangular pitched-roof building with a chimney as a sign for “home”. It is the visual essence of the functions it contains – both literally and symbolically. The design for the new children’s home takes the familiar basic shapes of the typical Danish home as its natural starting point: the classic pitched-roof house and the dormer motif. The two elements are used in their most simplified form to create a recognisable exterior appearance and integrate the building into the surrounding residential area. They make up the project’s underlying architectural DNA, which expresses inclusion, diversity and an atmosphere of safety.Save this picture!© Mikkel FrostBy combining and applying the basic elements in a new and playful way the care centre is highlighted as an extraordinary place with its own identity. The basic geometric shape is modified by the distinctive dormer profiles, which grow into and out of the building volume, are turned upside down and even rise up to form a view point. The concept adds spatial variation and functional flexibility to the interior organisation. The dormers give the residents the opportunity to set their own mark on the building by involving them in the arrangement, décor and use of these “bonus spaces” according to varying needs and changing activities. The varying sizes and orientations allow for a wide range of applications such as reading and movie corners, a study for homework, areas for painting and crafting, common rooms for festive events etc.Save this picture!© Mikkel FrostMore home, less institutionThe overall organisation consists of four interconnected houses. The elongated wings of the traditional institutional building are split up and contracted to form a compact building with offset volumes. Thereby, the building scale is reduced and self-contained, varied units are created for the different groups of residents. Each age group has its own house in connection with a central unit for flexible use. The layout aims at providing the residents with a sense of belonging to their unit – a homely base where they can retreat alone or in smaller groups.Save this picture!© Mikkel FrostThe smaller children’s units are retracted from the street and oriented towards the garden with direct access to the playground. The central unit contains the main entrance in connection with the parking lot, which gives the staff an overview of arriving visitors and deliveries without affecting the housing units. The teenagers’ unit is the most extrovert section of the building and is oriented towards the street. The older residents are encouraged to use the city and engage in social activities on equal terms with their peers.Save this picture!DiagramTypical institutional functions such as administration, staff rooms and storage are mostly located in the basement and on the 1st floor so that they get “lifted” out of the resident’s everyday life and minimise the feeling of being in an institution. The building’s rational organization ensures short distances and proximity between the different units so that the personnel always are close to every resident. Thus, the personnel’s working procedures are incorporated effectively in the daily routines, thereby freeing more time for taking care of and spending time with the children – more home, less institution.Save this picture!© Mikkel FrostProject gallerySee allShow lessPop-up Café / PYESelected ProjectsArtworks by Architects to be Auctioned for Maggie’s CentresArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Strandgårds Alle, 5300 Kerteminde, DenmarkLocation to be used only as a reference.

We march in Pride

first_imgWW photo: Brenda RyanYear after year, many among the million-plus people who line the streets to watch the Pride parade in New York City crave a fightback perspective along with the celebration of their sexual and gender identities.The revolutionary contingent organized by Workers World Party was a refreshing display of struggle in the midst of attempts by big corporations to dominate the “official” New York City Pride march on June 29. Our dynamic group included many young activists from FIST (Fight Imperialism, Stand Together) and our comrades in struggle from El Colectivo Honduras USA Resistencia — Partido Libre.We had the honor of marching with Nelson Arámbu, a founder of Honduras’ Movement for Diversity in Resistance and a leading lesbian, gay, bi, trans organizer in the National Popular Resistance Front against the U.S.-backed coup regime in Honduras.The revolutionary contingent called for the release of whistleblower and political prisoner Chelsea Manning and justice for transwoman Islan Nettles, who was murdered in Harlem. It also urged people to join the fight for a $15-an-hour minimum wage.We felt a special responsibility to speak out in support of the embattled anti-fascist resistance in Ukraine and the people’s republics of Dontesk and Lugansk. This weekend supporters of the far-right coup in Kiev, including U.S.-backed nongovernmental organizations, held a “Pride” festival there. This blatant “pink-washing” of the fascist-dominated junta is calculated to divide the resistance and the working class. Our delegation carried signs declaring “No pride in supporting Kiev fascists” and “Solidarity with the resistance in Ukraine.”WWP has a proud history in the lesbian, gay, bi, trans and queer struggles. Members, allies and future members were among those who fought the cops during the 1969 Stonewall Rebellion. This was WWP’s 43rd consecutive year marching in Pride.If you want to experience the true spirit of Stonewall and the early Pride marches, the Trans Day of Action, held on June 27, is the place to be! But on June 29, we received cheers while distributing thousands of leaflets and newspapers, including a beautiful FIST flyer titled “Communists Stand with LGBTQ Liberation.”Shout-out to our comrades and allies from BAYAN USA NE, GABRIELA USA, Nodutdol for Korean Community Development, Audre Lorde Project and others who also had terrific political contingents.
