Under the scheme, backed by the BBA, the banks will have to provide businesses with the result of a loan appeal within 30 days and information on alternative sources of finance if loans are denied.The banks involved are HSBC, Barclays, RBS and Santander.“We are delighted to announce the launch of the Better Business Finance campaign,” BBA chief executive Angela Knight, said.She said the move “represents the banking industry’s continued commitment to providing small and medium sized businesses with the information and support that they need.”In February, Britain finalised a deal with its banks to curb their bonuses and get them to lend more to business in the wake of a sharp downturn in business lending after the credit crisis.The deal, known as “Project Merlin,” would see Britain’s top banks lend about £190bn to business this year, up from about £179bn.

2 shares I think look cheap after the stock market crash

first_img2 shares I think look cheap after the stock market crash Jonathan Smith does not own shares in any firm mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Auto Trader and Diageo. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. All the selling in the market over the past few weeks has left us with some severely undervalued firms. Now, as investors we need to be careful. Some businesses have seen a sharp fall in their price for good reasons. Think airlines and other travel firms that will take a devastating revenues hit for 2020 due to the fallout from the coronavirus and travel restrictions. I would steer clear of companies in this sector.On the flip side, there are some firms that have a lower share price without such obvious reasons. And I think some of these can provide good long-term upside for investors.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…Staying parkedOne share I would recommend holding, or buying if you do not own it already, is Auto Trader (LSE: AUTO). This is an online marketplace to buy and sell new and used cars. Like most constituents of the FTSE 100 index, it has seen a share price fall of almost 24% over the past month. But is this warranted?Financial results from 2019 were very strong. Numbers were up across the board, from revenue (+8%) to operating profit (+10%). Even with the disruption seen in early 2020 so far, I am not overly concerned about its prospects. The market for used cars is fairly inelastic, and the actual searching and information-gathering for a car can be done by consumers at home. Given the strong financial performance for the past few years, the fundamental business of Auto Trader is strong. With low physical overheads due to its online presence, and a lack of capital tied up in actual cars, the business has the ability to see out a tough start to the year. Through buying this dip in the share price, I think investors could be well rewarded into the second half of 2020 and beyond.Time for a drinkThe second big name I would consider at the moment is Diageo (LSE: DGE). The multinational drinks owner might not be the first company you might expect me to choose. Won’t the firm be impacted by the global supply chain disruption? Yes, very likely. But the element that makes Diageo a lower-risk buy than some other international firms is that it is well-diversified. This is the case geographically, but also across market segments and demographics.It also has a basket of powerful and desirable brand names that have proved popular in good times and bad. Think Johnnie Walker, Baileys, Smirnoff, Gordon’s, Guinness and more. Further, the company is already being proactive regarding the impact from the coronavirus. It has recently announced a likely hit of £200m to profits this year, due to the virus lockdown. This is being priced-in to the share price, which is down 21% over the past month. Investors are now aware of this hit to profit, so it will not be a surprise when it happens. With bad news priced-in to the share, any revision with better news could be a catalyst for the share price to rally. When you consider that in the last fiscal year profit was up 9.5% to almost £4bn, it is certainty not a business where long-term demand is falling. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

2019 Rugby World Cup: Ireland 27-3 Scotland

first_imgFamiliar foes did battle in this Pool A clash in Yokohama – here’s all you need to know Going green: Jacob Stockdale gets past Scotland defenders with Conor Murray in support (Getty Images) 2019 Rugby World Cup: Ireland 27-3 ScotlandHead-to-headPlayed – 136Ireland wins – 64Scotland wins – 67Draws – 5Did You Know?Ireland beat more than twice as many defenders as Scotland – 17 to eight – while the Scots made three times as many offloads with nine to Ireland’s three.Plus, Ireland maintained their record of converting half-time leads to match wins… Related: Rugby World Cup FixturesIn a nutshellIreland’s defence came to the fore as they comfortably saw off their Six Nations rivals in Yokohama, not only scoring four tries for the bonus point but preventing Scotland from crossing the whitewash.It was the power and precision of Ireland’s forwards that put them in a strong position at half-time. All three of their tries came from tight-five forwards and all three from close range.James Ryan was the first to score, his low position allowing him to get under the Scottish defence. Captain Rory Best followed him onto the scoresheet when he rolled over from a driving maul in the corner. There were question marks over the grounding but Wayne Barnes assured the Scots it had been checked by the TMO.On the line: Tadhg Furlong scores Ireland’s third try (Getty Images)Tadhg Furlong completed the tight-five hat-trick, just reaching the line following a short burst in the 25th minute.All Scotland could manage in the first half was a solitary Greig Laidlaw penalty as Ireland’s hard-hitting defensive line shut down attacks.With Hamish Watson, one of their best players, having to leave the field just before half-time after suffering a nasty-looking injury at the breakdown, it didn’t look good for the men in blue.With mist and fine rain descending at half-time, handling errors hampered the Scots’ ability to spread the ball wide and they couldn’t build momentum in their attacking game. Ireland capitalised on any error, playing to their set-piece and kicking strengths.They had to wait a while for the all-important fourth try but in the 56th minute, a few phases after a high ball slipped through Sean Maitland ‘s fingers, Andrew Conway crossed in the corner. There was a glimpse of a chance for Scotland when Chris Harris and Stuart Hogg combined to reach the Irish 22, and Tadhg Beirne was sin-binned for a breakdown infringement. Yet from the ensuing penalty, Scotland kicked for a five-metre lineout, worked a set play down the blind side, lost possession and conceded a penalty themselves to allow Ireland to relieve the pressure.Scotland had a few more chances in the final ten minutes with a series of five-metre lineouts but could find no way through the green wall.Wrapped up: Sean Maitland is tackled by Josh van der Flier and Jordan Larmour (Getty Images)Star manChris Farrell didn’t start this match but arrived as a replacement midway through the first half and made a big impression in attack and defence. He’s an uncompromising tackler and thwarted several Scottish attacks. And when he got possession, he made ground – whether a few metres while taking contact or a long burst into open space. What you could call an impact substitute.Related: Rugby World Cup TV CoverageReady for action: The teams line up for the anthems in Yokohama (Getty Images)The ReactionIreland coach Joe Schmidt: “I was delighted with the first half. We really put some pressure on. We had to soak a bit up too.“We put together about 15 line breaks. The one frustration is we didn’t finish on the back of enough of those, but in these conditions in the second half I was delighted to see Andrew Conway get over in the corner. It just gave us the buffer and the bonus point, which could be important in the pool later on.”Scotland coach Gregor Townsend: “When you go behind against a team like Ireland, who are very good at staying in front, then it’s always going to be difficult and it was obviously very difficult in the second half with the rain.“Really it was that first 20 minutes: we didn’t set the tone with our energy and Ireland took their chances and the game was very difficult to come back from there.”The TeamsIreland: Jordan Larmour; Andrew Conway, Garry Ringrose, Bundee Aki (Chris Farrell 21), Jacob Stockdale; Johnny Sexton (Jack Carty 57), Conor Murray (Luke McGrath 57); Cian Healy (David Kilcoyne 50), Rory Best (captain), Tadhg Furlong (Andrew Porter 50), Iain Henderson (Tadhg Beirne 57), James Ryan, Peter O’Mahony (Jack Conan 28), Josh Van der Flier (Jack Conan 14-22, Niall Scannell 73), CJ Stander.Tries: Ryan 7, Best 16, Furlong 25, Conway 56.

Apopka Police contribute to Loaves and Fishes

first_img Please enter your name here You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Presents $2,000 check to local charityAt approximately 9:30AM this morning a white van backed up to a side entrance of the Apopka Police Department. Two people dressed in black walked into the building, loaded it with toys, bicycles and gifts for local children and drove away without incident.Oh and they also took a check …giant check!But while this incident had all the earmarks of a classic heist, it was actually a planned event. The APD chipped-in with the gifts and a $2,000 check to help The Loaves and Fishes of Apopka deliver Christmas gifts and food bags to children and families in Central Florida.Loaves and Fishes Senior Director Karen Valiente was overwhelmed by the APD’s contribution.“I’m absolutely amazed. I never expected so much. We simply couldn’t do it without the Apopka Police Department.”She turned to APD Chief Michael McKinley.“Thank you. This is wonderful.”“We are happy to help,” he said.McKinley went on to say that the toys and funds came in part from donations the APD received throughout the year.“Thanks to the community’s generosity, we are able to provide children with a chance to have a great Christmas they might not otherwise experience.”According to its website, Loaves and Fishes was created in 1984 when a need arose and area churches combined their resources to create a ministry to help those less fortunate.The organization is funded by contributions from churches, businesses, schools, civic groups and individuals. There are a number of churches that support the ministry in many different ways. Some offer to volunteer services and monthly donations, while others hold food drives to help keep the pantry full. Only three employees and 135 volunteers provide help to over 400 underprivileged families year round.And although they are primarily a Food Pantry ministry, Christmas is a time they come together in a more comprehensive and seasonal manner.Next week the 135 volunteers and three employees of Loaves and Fishes begin the process of delivering gifts to children and food bags to families. Last year 977 children received Christmas presents and over 500 families got a food bag for the holidays.

Brief The scale and programme of the house suggests more of a communal dwelling for a multi-tier family. The family called for a design that can accommodate a long wish list of desires of every members and the flexibility for change and expansion of the household. Save this picture!Strategy The house is organized in two linear volumes, split by a common pool in the middle but connected on the upper floors by the family space. The 2-storey volume houses the parents’ master en-suite on the upper floors, floating above the main living space. A lawn garden sits above on the roof. The 3–storey block primarily, apart from the dining and kitchen on the ground floor, are tailored to the lifestyles of the 3 siblings yielding to their individual narratives. Save this picture!Apart from this tall list of specificities, the house design has to accommodate for change. This incidentally explains its relatively simple form and raw finish. At the macro scale, the two volumes can be sub-divided into 2 separate bungalow plots with minor alteration to the existing structures. Internally, the spaces are organized to be easily re-configurable as the service spaces and circulation are arranged neatly to one side. This allows most of the room to have high ceiling spaces (to the slab) without the need for false ceiling. Save this picture!The challenge brought us to engage the very traditional Asian Concept of Multi-generation Living in our modern ageing society and to address the differences in habits, desires, taste or even the potential tensions between individuals or sub-families.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessHigher Tax will hurt Honest S-CorporationsArticlesThe Waterhouse / Neri & Hu Design and Research OfficeArticles Share “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/66604/the-apartment-house-formwerkz-architects Clipboardlast_img read more

Victory for anti-stop & frisk activist

first_imgJazz Hayden, giving victory sign, and supportersOct. 11. WW photo: Anne PrudenJoseph “Jazz” Hayden no longer faces fourteen years of imprisonment for bogus weapons charges in his arrest last December.Hayden has been filming the New York Police Department’s illegal stop-and-frisks in his Harlem community. To date this year, there have been more than 600,000 young Black and Latino men stopped, questioned and frisked for just walking, standing, sitting, driving or entering residential buildings because of their skin color, and not in the commission of a crime.Dozens of supporters representing several social justice organizations rallied in front of Manhattan Criminal Court on Oct. 11 to stand by this Black activist at his hearing and fill the courtroom. They held signs saying “Innocent.” Pressure had also been put on District Attorney Cyrus Vance’s office nationally and internationally. Thousands of people organized and fought to keep Jazz free — and won!Hayden’s case was adjourned in contemplation of dismissal. He will be on probation for six months and was ordered to do five days of community service. He agreed to plead guilty to the charge of disorderly conduct/reckless driving. He was ordered to pay a $125 “surcharge” for the violation, which he paid upon leaving the courthouse.Ironically, having already performed “community service” for years via his “cop watch” beat, Hayden will be relegated to “stuffing envelopes” for five days.The reason for Hayden being stopped and arrested by the cops proved to be highly questionable. The NYPD had no sound basis for Hayden’s case. It was a racist setup, an attempt to silence Jazz and intimidate others who may be exercising their First Amendment right to dissent and film so-called public servants on the job. The D.A. admitted that he had insufficient evidence to support the charges. And it became evident in court that his arrest was retaliatory.After the hearing, supporters chanted, “This is what victory looks like!” Hayden stated he intends to continue his community activism, exposing the NYPD, and to speak out against police brutality, illegal stop-and-frisks and racial profiling in Harlem and elsewhere.Hayden repeatedly thanked everyone for their continued support, saying it has helped inspire him to do what he’s been doing. “We must continue to apply pressure to correct the entire system. This is to be our focus. Without a demand and organizing, there will be no justice, no fairness, no change,” he stated. He added, parenthetically, that he witnessed three stop-and-frisks on his way to court. And that he stopped and spoke to the victims, giving them support, and showing them that someone cares. He urged everyone to do the same whenever they witness injustice.
