By dropping its holding below 50 per cent, the Spanish company will no longer need to consolidate BAA debt on its balance sheet.It sold 10 per cent of its lucrative Canadian 407 Express Toll Route to the Canadian Pension Plan Investment Board for C$894m (£573m) last year and Meiras said it wants to continue selling mature infrastructure assets in 2011.The BAA stake may prove trickier to sell after BAA said this week it expects to take a hit of around £24m to account for the costs of last month’s big freeze, which closed runways and dented passenger numbers in the week before Christmas.“Bad weather is part of systemic risk in the airport business and this has obviously been factored into our valuation of the stake,” Meiras said.Virgin Atlantic has threatened to take legal action against BAA over the closure of Heathrow last month and said it will withhold fees it pays to BAA until a probe into the disruption is complete. Meiras said no airline had yet withheld fees to BAA because of last month’s closures.The BAA sale plan dates back to October of last year when the company said it would go ahead some time in 2011. last_img read more

I’d top up my State Pension by investing in stocks. Here’s how

first_img It’s no secret that the State Pension is not enough for most of us to live on. At £168.80 per week, it’s less than half the real living wage of a person working 37 hours per week. With utility bills and grocery shopping increasing in price, it’s no wonder people are looking for ways to supplement their state payout.When thinking of retirement, most people daydream about all the things they’d like to do with their free time, whether that be travelling, catching up with friends and family, pursuing hobbies and interests or just enjoying their down-time reading, cooking and walking.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…With all this in mind, a little extra cash is a must-have. No matter what you dream of doing with your time, most of it will require a bit of extra cash. So, what can be done when you’re young, to ensure you supplement your pension in your retirement years?There are various ways you can invest your money, and the UK stock market is a great place to boost your future income potential.Funds and trustsInvesting in funds or trusts could be an easy way of investing your money rather than buying individual shares yourself, as you can leave it up to the experts to guide you by paying an active manager to do the hard work for you.But you can buy your own tracker funds too, which is also easy and might be preferred by some after what happened last year.After the devastating losses many investors suffered in the 2019 Neil Woodford scandal, active management is now under a cloud. Also, many people don’t want to spend their savings on paying a fund manager and would rather put their extra cash into a simple index fund, such as a FTSE 250 tracker. The FTSE 250 has produced an average annual return of over 11% during the past 10 years, while the figure has been approximately 7% for the FTSE 100. These are good rates of return for investors saving for the long term. At an average annual interest rate of 9%, if you invest £10,000 today and top up with £250 per month, in 37 years, your pension pot would be worth over £1m.  This would give you an annual income of £50k for 20 years, a very comfortable addition to the state pension. Put your pension savings in a SIPPWhether you want to buy index funds or individual shares, the best way to do this is through a Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP), which allows you to buy and sell stocks and funds, while also gaining a government contribution equivalent to your marginal tax rate. Taking responsibility for your pension savings can be daunting and rightly so as you must be comfortable with your investment decisions and confident in your choices. As is commonly known, but not always considered, the value of your investments can go down as well as up, so if you’re actively managing your own investments you need to keep up to date with changes in the market.This shouldn’t put you off, there is plenty of good advice and information available to active investors looking to invest for a profitable future and to top up the depressingly low State Pension.

Three charities collaborate to maximise income from conference resources

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Three charities collaborate to maximise income from conference resources The venues are within three miles of each other and are located near to the M60/M56 motorway network.Generating additional sustainable income from a charity’s buildings and other physical assets is a sound development, but these three organisations demonstrate that collaboration in this area could yield even higher income. Three Stockport charities are working together to increase their combined income from their meeting rooms.Royal Schools for the Deaf, Boys and Girls Welfare Society and St Ann’s Hospice are pooling their combined resources to offer a referral and booking service to outside clients looking for meeting space.Each organisation’s facilities are sufficient to offer a variety of spaces, equipment and services, to most clients. However, if there is no availability at a client’s preferred venue, the booking will be referred to one of the other two establishments, thereby retaining the client’s business within the trio of conference centres.

Biggest public threat: health care for profit

first_imgThe coronavirus COVID-19, first detected in China, has now spread around the world. With hundreds of cases already identified across the U.S., this potential public health emergency has exposed glaring deficiencies in preparedness. Few people were reassured when Vice President Mike Pence said that health insurance will cover the cost of a test for COVID-19. The fact is that the supply of tests is woefully inadequate for this mass outbreak. Even things as basic as medical masks are in short supply.The anti-science president has assigned a pathetic $8.1 billion in federal funds to combat COVID-19. His behavior thus far has been one of do-nothing criminality. He offers useless statements like “It’s all going to work out.” as a solution, and actually promised at a Feb. 10 campaign rally: “By April, you know, in theory, when it gets a little warmer, [the virus] miraculously goes away.” Because the disease threatens his second-term campaign, it appears the president may be trying to manipulate infection statistics. For instance, the presidential office is not attempting to solve the problem of a cruise ship of thousands of potentially infected passengers that is moored in San Francisco Bay — people who would spike the U.S. disease rate if they set foot on dry land. According to the New York Times, “As the government’s scientists and leading health experts raised the alarm early and pushed for aggressive action, they faced resistance and doubt at the White House — especially from the president — about spooking financial markets and inciting panic.” (March 8)Trump is not the only obstacle to delivering the response that is urgently needed. Racism and poverty will once again limit access to information, testing care and medication. Moreover, people living in shelters, dependent on mass transit or in other ways subjected to a high level of potential contact with carriers who are unaware they are infected could be at higher risk of contracting COVID-19.Big Pharma, under fire for its role in fueling opioid addiction, will put profit first in the development of treatment and preventive medication. For-profit hospitals will do anything to keep costs down — at the expense of sick human beings. The capitalist class is most worried about workers not coming to work, airline flights being cancelled, shoppers and diners staying home, and higher medical bills that private insurers will have to cover. That’s what’s causing Wall Street to get the jitters, sending stocks into freefall on multiple days.Health care is a right!The case for implementing a single-payer health care system — popularized by the Sanders campaign as “Medicare for All” —  could not be stronger. The glaring need was already present before the world even heard of COVID-19. Now coronavirus is a household word.Mass sentiment that health care is not only a basic necessity, but a basic human right is a major factor driving Bernie Sanders’ popularity.Medicare for All is the simple and reasonable proposition that if the U.S. government can provide health care for people over 65, it can provide health care for everyone in the country. Funds can be made readily available by cutting the Pentagon budget and taxing the 1%. What’s wrong with that? It’s not profitable! That’s why the Democratic Party apparatus has coalesced to crush the Sanders movement. This attempt briefly drove stocks back up after Biden pushed Sanders down in the Super Tuesday primaries.And that’s why it will take more than an electoral campaign to win health care for all. The movement that the Sanders campaign set in motion has to stay in the streets — no matter what happens with the election — and say, “People before profits,  health care is a right!” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

(AP Photo/Charles Krupa, File)Harvard and Yale under investigation by Department of Education The two universities are accused of failing to report foreign gifts and contracts worth hundreds of millions of dollars, according to Fox News. The United States Department of Education (DOE) announced the investigation Thursday. The agency claims that Yale had failed to report at least $375 million in foreign transactions and hasn’t reported any gifts or contracts for the last four years. They did not say how much Harvard may have failed to report. Section 117 of the Higher Education Act states that universities are required to report gifts valued at $250,000 or more from a foreign source. A spokesperson from Yale’s office of public affairs and communications told Fox News that the university is preparing to respond to the DOE’s request for records. Coronavirus outbreak on Diamond Princess cruise ship 219 people aboard the Diamond Princess cruise have now tested positive for the coronavirus, according to CNN. More than 3,700 passengers and crew are quarantined on the cruise ship in Yokohama, Japan, and the number of infections is increasing every day. The virus has infected more than 60,000 people worldwide and has killed more than 1,300 people, according to CNN. Iceberg the size of Atlanta threatens rising ocean levelsAn iceberg approximately the size of Atlanta broke off of a glacier in Antarctica Thursday, according to CNN. The iceberg measures more than 116 square miles and its break-off came shortly after a research base in Antarctica recorded the hottest temperature on record for the continent. Mark Drinkwater, head of the Earth and Mission Sciences Division at the ESA, told CNN that the iceberg is both beautiful and terrifying, and a response to climate change. Cracks in the Pine Island Glacier in Antarctica have been growing rapidly over the last days, as can be seen in this #Sentinel1 comparison of 02 & 05 February 2020. The glacier has been losing #ice dramatically & experienced a series of calvings in the last 25 years. pic.twitter.com/uKcbZmp45F— Copernicus EU (@CopernicusEU) February 6, 2020Foreperson of the jury that convicted Rodger Stone called Trump and his supporters racistsSocial media posts belonging to the foreperson of the jury that convicted former Trump advisor Rodger Stone came to light Wednesday, according to Fox News. Tomeka Hart, the former Memphis City School Board President, revealed Wednesday that she was the foreperson of the jury.
