The retail sector was struggling even before Covid-19 struck, and the pandemic means it’s set for a disastrous year, right? Wrong. According to the Office for National Statistics (ONS), retail sales in July were back above their pre-lockdown levels. With the FTSE 100 still in a 20% slump in 2020, that means there must be some bargain stocks to be had, right? I say yes.Retail volumes rose 3.6% between June and July, which might not seem too exciting on first look. After all, we’re really just opening up after our very strict lockdown. But July sales were actually higher than February’s, and I think August is likely to continue the trend.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…The first lesson for me is that the past six months has been a very short time in investing, even if it can feel like it’s sucked far more time than that out of our lives. And as we’ve been trying to reassure investors all along at The Motley Fool, even a FTSE 100 dip as deep as this year’s will disappear into the charts in the fullness of time.If we’d had a complete blank in statistics between March and June, the ONS retail sales chart for the past five years would just look like a steady upwards line. There’d be no way to guess what a calamity actually happened. The FTSE 100 chart doesn’t look quite like that yet. But once it’s fully recovered, I’m sure it will — just like every other stock market crash we’ve ever had. In the meantime, we can look for buys to make the most of the time lag.FTSE 100 retailersSo what would I pick? I’ve always been a fan of Associated British Foods. Primark is the jewel in the crown, and checking out Primark figures is the first thing I always do whenever we get results from ABF. Primark has been hit in the downturn, but we have the company’s food business and its sugar production as defensive back-ups. The ABF share price is down 20% in 2020, and I rate it a top FTSE 100 buy.The clothing business is a tough one, and we’ve seen so many failures over the years. They range from fad fashion brands that burn brightly and then dim to nothing, to high street fixtures like Marks & Spencer. M&S has been struggling to sell clothing for decades. But directly opposite my local branch lies Next, and that’s an entirely different story. Next just seems to manage to get it right, year after year. And it’s doing a great job of selling online too, which is a must these days. The Next price dropped further than the FTSE 100 in the early crash. But it’s now doing better than the index, with a year-to-date drop of 11%. Next is a buy for me.One to watchI’m in two minds about Frasers Group, as Mike Ashley has rebranded the former Sports Direct International. I’m not keen on the firm’s debt situation, but I do like its very positive outlook. And while the share price has pulled back from the worst of its lockdown slump, it still looks cheap. I’m starting to think it could be time to buy, but I’ll watch and wait for a little longer. See all posts by Alan Oscroft

First – three volumes of the same profile. Second – all of the three houses are similar to each other in size in the plan, and house by the park is one floor lower than the two other buildings.Save this picture!© Norbert TukajAfter estimating the scale and structures of adjacent and neighboring territories, in order to articulate the northern layout of J.Basanavicius street, new building forms perimetrical occupation of the plot by the street, while closer to the park villa morphotype is chosen. The building by the Reformatai square is slightly turned in relation to the middle building, in this way enhancing the city villa character.Save this picture!DiagramFacades and finishing materialsIn the facade solutions, several important principles that are inherent to Vilnius old town are reflected:1. Regular and harmonious window arrangement;2. Rather high fence that enhances the perimetrical occupation of the plot by the main street;Save this picture!© Norbert Tukaj3. Firewall – solid massive building wall. Inner structure of the building plan is inherent to the building facades – window openings, balconies are arranged in a way so it would assure good functionality of inner structure, size of the windows assures sufficient lighting and insolation.

Tagged with: Fundraising Camp South East Training Howard Lake | 21 April 2015 | News Fundraising Camp returns to Canterbury Yesterday UK Fundraising’s Fundraising Camp took place in Canterbury, hosted once again by the Centre for Philanthropy at the University of Kent.Our tenth one-day Fundraising Camp (we’ve run two other shorter versions too) went down well, it seems, with plenty of participants commenting how valuable they found it to come to an event where they could meet and talk with other fundraisers and share ideas and problems.Having spent plenty of time over the past 18 months trying to explain that a Fundraising Camp doesn’t involve tents or campfires, we did for the first time venture outdoors to run three sessions in the afternoon to take advantage of the Kent sunshine. Another benefit of the flexible and informal format of Fundraising Camp.Thank you to Blackbaud Europe, One Cent Call and the Centre for Philanthropy at the University of Kent for their support for this event.Our next Fundraising Camp will be the first we’ve run in Northern Ireland. It takes place on 11 May in Belfast. 43 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis
Follow the news on Hungary Hungary is ranked 89th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index. HungaryEurope – Central Asia Media independenceInternational bodies Freedom of expressionJudicial harassment Klubrádió logo News to go further Help by sharing this information Anything goes when it comes to silencing independent media outlets in Hungary. In a letter sent to Klubrádió on 8 September, which the media has provided to RSF, the Media Council said it could not renew the radio station’s licence because it had not always “provided monthly data on programme quotas.”According to the Media Council, between 2015 and 2017, Klubrádió failed several times to certify that it was complying with legal programme quotas stipulating how much airtime broadcasters must allocate to Hungarian music and how much to international music. As a result, its licence will expire on 14 February 2021.The Media Council says such “repeated violation” of the media law twice in a year is sufficiently serious to constitute “an objective reason for ruling out renewal” – an argument rejected by Klubrádió, especially as it paid the approximately 100-euro fine that was demanded for each of these violations and fulfilled the programme quotas themselves. In the past, such repeated violations were not grounds for suspending other medias’ broadcasting licences, which amounts to the discrimination of Klubrádió. A radio station with a reputation for outspoken and humorous criticism of the government, Klubrádió already had its licence suspended in 2013. It was given a new, seven-year licence the following year – under pressure from its listeners – although it was limited to the Hungarian capital. If Klubrádió fails to win when its frequency is put up to bid, it will have to pass from Budapest to… the internet.“By taking a decision with such drastic consequences on such flimsy legal grounds, the Media Council is acting as if it was taking orders from the ruling party, Fidesz,” said Pavol Szalai, the head of RSF’s European Union and Balkans desk. “The new bidding process for Klubrádió’s frequency, which the Media Council is going to organize, must be conducted in a transparent and apolitical manner. The European Commission, for its part, must investigate the Media Council’s independence under the revised EU Audiovisual Media Services Directive.”The Media Council’s independence was already formally guaranteed in Hungarian legislation before the EU directive was transposed into Hungarian law in 2019, but its composition is politicized. When renewing the Media Council last December, parliament rejected all of the opposition candidates and elected only Fidesz nominees to the four vacant positions. News News Reporters Without Borders (RSF) urges the European Commission to investigate the independence of Hungary’s Media Council, which seems to have been following orders from the ruling Fidesz party when it refused to renew the operating licence of Klubrádió, Budapest’s last independent radio station, on trivial administrative grounds.

Twitter Linkedin Email NewsBreaking newsJudges refuses mother’ application to remand son in prisonBy admin – November 30, 2013 1461 Advertisement Print WhatsApp by Andrew CareySign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up andrewA JUDGE has refused a mother’s application to have her son sent to Limerick prison because she has been in constant fear of him for the last five years.Christopher Clancy (22) with addresses at Lord Edward Court and Hyde Road appeared before Limerick District Court charged with trespassing at his mother’s house in Castletroy where it is alleged that he threw a coffee table during an argument with her.A charge relating to an alleged breach of a barring order on November 11 was also put to Mr Clancy who made no response to the allegation.Gardai initially stated that there was no objection to bail but the mother of the accused man addressed the court and asked Judge Eugene O’Kelly to remand him in custody.Speaking from the public gallery, Ms Fiona Clancy told the judge that she wished to object to bail being granted to her son as she lives “in constant fear” of him.Taking to the witness box, Ms Clancy said she was “living in fear of that young fella” and further claimed that he had been “following me and threatening me for the last ten months”.Ms Clancy said that she and her three children had been experiencing difficulties over the last five years with the accused.Judge O’Kelly told Ms Clancy that he was “listening to what you are saying” but added that the Gardai were seeking strict conditions of bail.He added that bail would be revoked if the accused man breached even one condition.Bail was granted after the court approved an independent surety of €1,000 and Christopher Clancy was ordered not to have any contact with Fiona Clancy or her three other children at their Castletroy address.The case was adjourned to next month to await the directions of the Director of Public Prosecutions.

For the mortgage industry as a whole, MBA estimates the purchase share was at 62% last quarter.Servicing net financial income for Q3 was a loss of $62 per loan, compared to a loss of $74 per loan in Q2. Servicing operating income, which excludes MSR amortization, gains/loss in the valuation of servicing rights net of hedging gains/losses and gains/losses on the bulk sale of MSRs, was $43 per loan in the third quarter, compared to $42 per loan in the second quarter.Additionally, total loan production expenses decreased to $7,217 per loan in Q3, down from $7,725 per loan in Q2. From the third quarter of 2008 to last quarter, loan production expenses have averaged $6,481 per loan.“With higher prepayment activity seen from borrowers refinancing, net servicing income did take a hit for the second straight quarter. Overall, it was a strong summer for independent mortgage banks, with 91 percent reporting profitability,” Walsh added.

Single-Family Temporary Flexibilities Extended, FHA Announces February 23, 2021 11,857 Views The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) Tuesday announced extensions of a set of policy flexibilities for single-family lenders and servicers, part of its effort to maintain new mortgage originations for homebuyers and allow 203(k)-funded rehabilitation projects to continue, even throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.FHA’s Limited 203(k) program permits homebuyers and homeowners to finance up to $35,000 into their mortgage to repair, improve, or upgrade their homes. Homebuyers and homeowners can quickly and easily tap into cash to pay for property repairs or improvements, such as those identified by a home inspector or an FHA appraiser. “Homeowners can make property repairs, improvements, or prepare their home for sale,” according to FHA. “Homebuyers can make their new home move-in ready by remodeling the kitchen, painting the interior, or purchasing new carpet.”According to a press release from FHA, “these temporary policies recognize the sustained need for flexibility during this critical time to ensure mortgage financing remains available for the nation’s low- and moderate-income homebuyers and that home rehabilitation work can continue.”As of Tuesday, the temporary policies will be in place through June 30, 2021.HUD Office of Housing and Federal Housing Administration Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary Lopa Kolluri says the extensions allow lenders to continue originating and closing mortgages designated for FHA insurance endorsement during the pandemic and assist the completion of critical in-progress home repairs.The Mortgagee Letter 2021.06 and new Mortgagee Letter 2021.07 outline details and background of the policies related to Single Family Title II and Home Equity Conversion Mortgages (HECM).Under the extension, the following allowances exist, according to the news release: “Use of an exterior-only appraisal scope of work; and re-verification of employment, verification of self-employment income, and verification of rental income.”FHA added that for Single Family Title II forward 203(k) rehabilitation mortgages only,it also is extending temporary policies for the administration of 203(k) Rehabilitation Mortgage Insurance Program escrow accounts for borrowers in forbearance.Any questions regarding the mortgagee letters may be directed to the FHA Resource Center at 1.800.CALL.FHA.
