The French-based energy management group was said to have made a preliminary bid for approximately $30bn (£18.46bn) for the Switzerland-based security agency, but Schneider quickly refuted the reports.“In response to market rumours, Schneider Electric announced today that it is not currently in discussion with Tyco International regarding a potential strategic transaction between the two companies,” the company said in a statement. “Schneider has made a number of acquisitions to boost its growth, but this rumoured bid is a surprise due to the size of the target. “This would be huge compared to Schneider’s size,” said Bertrand Lamielle, head of asset management at B*Capital. Tyco had £10.4bn in revenue in 2010, almost two thirds of Schneider’s £17.8bn revenue.Shares in Schneider have fallen over eight per cent this week on concerns about a capital hike, and are down 10 per cent since early April. Analysts from Morgan Stanley estimate a deal would require up to $17.2bn of fresh equity, suggesting it could also prompt Europe’s biggest-ever non-financial share issue. Shares in Tyco, which has a market capitalisation of about $23bn – almost two thirds that of Schneider – were more or less flat in Paris trading.

How you could make £1m from UK shares with £50 per week

first_img34.9 years Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. See all posts by Roland Head Enter Your Email Address Portfolio value £100,000 Time taken Image source: Getty Images Building a million-pound portfolio of UK shares and retiring early may seem too good to be true. But I reckon it’s easier than you might think to hit this magic number, even with. fairly modest monthly investment.In this piece I’ll explain how I’d use just £50 per week to build a stock portfolio that could support you comfortably for the rest of your life.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…Here’s how I’d do itI’ll be honest. I’m not going to suggest investing in the latest hot pharma stocks or tech start-ups. My approach is based on building a portfolio of real businesses that generate profits and surplus cash.Most of these businesses pay regular dividends which can also be reinvested to buy more shares. Over time, your annual returns get bigger and bigger. This effect is called compounding — it’s the secret to getting rich without needing a massive income.The average long-term return from UK shares is around 8% per year. Based on a saving of £50 per week, here’s how I think your portfolio value could grow: 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. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. 17.5 years Roland Head | Sunday, 30th August, 2020 I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares £500,000 43.3 years Roland Head owns shares of GlaxoSmithKline and Royal Dutch Shell B. The Motley Fool UK has recommended GlaxoSmithKline, Schroders (Non-Voting), and Unilever. 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. £1,000,000 “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Note how the growth speeds up. It takes 17 years to get to £100,000, but only 17 more years to get to £500,000 — another £400k. The final haul to £1m happens even faster, in just eight years. That’s the power of compounding. If you’re patient, you can get rich very easily.If you’re 22 and you start saving today you could be a millionaire by the time you’re 65, before you hit State Pension age.UK shares: here’s what I’d buyWhere should you put your cash? It goes without saying that your UK shares should be inside a Stocks and Shares ISA. There’s no sense in paying tax on your investing profits when the government provides a tax-free option.The simplest option is to invest the money in a cheap FTSE 100 tracker fund. This approach has several advantages. It’s cheap, simple and you can invest as little as £25 without excessive fees.However, the problem with owning the whole index is that it’s weighted towards low-growth businesses like big banks and oil companies.My preferred approach is to build an evenly-diversified portfolio of the best companies in the index. Names I’d include on that list include consumer goods firm Unilever, pharma giant GlaxoSmithKline and packaging group Mondi. I’d also include some natural resources stocks — perhaps Royal Dutch Shell — along with some good quality financials such as Schroder.Most brokers offer regular investing services that allow you to buy smaller amounts of stock on fixed days without paying full dealing charges. I’d use services such as these to build a portfolio of 15-20 stocks. In my experience that’s enough to get a good balance between safety and performance.Getting rich from UK shares isn’t difficult if you stick to the system and let compounding do the heavy lifting. This is how I hope to retire early — I believe it could work for you too. How you could make £1m from UK shares with £50 per weeklast_img read more

The house is located in Tunquén, a costal area in the central region of Chile, in a 5.000 sq.m. site overlooking the sea. The acces of the site is located in the lower part, so you enter with your back to the sea. The house is located in the upper part, in order to get the best views towards the ocean. The area is a semi-dry region, with native trees and a strong and cold wind from the south-east. The orientation of the site is south, so the main views towards the landscape are to the south (This is the south hemisphere, so the sun comes always from the north). The sunlight comes from the north, the upper part of the site, opposite to the main views of the site. This geographic situation determines the design, because the house must be open or transparent to the south to get the views, but it must also be open to the north light coming from the “rear” part of the house. In order to achieve this, the design is based in three parts: Save this picture!© Marcos MendizabalRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEAWindowsOTTOSTUMM | MOGSWindow Systems – BronzoFinestra B40Windowspanoramah!®ah!38 – FlexibilityEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena Apeldoorn1.

Three service volumes (kitchen and bathrooms) linked with each of the three main spaces of the house. Save this picture!© Marcos MendizabalThis scheme also solves the client needs: he wanted an integrated living-dinning-kitchen space, an exterior terrace protected from the wind, a main bedroom and a second one separated for acoustic and privacy needs. This configuration of the main three volumes generates three intermediate semi-interior-exterior spaces: terrace, access and separation space between the two bedrooms. Save this picture!© Marcos MendizabalThe terrace is protected from the wind by wooden blinds, by a big laminated glass, and by an existing tree. The protection against the strong summer sun is achieved by inclined beams that only allow winter sunrays to pass. Save this picture!© Marcos MendizabalThe living area volume has a complete double height in order to get the sun light, and also protects laterally the terrace from the south-east wind. The dining and kitchen area are located one step above the living area, avoiding its furnishings from blocking the views.

Censorship and threats after newspapers publish joint editorial about hukou

first_img Receive email alerts March 9, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Censorship and threats after newspapers publish joint editorial about hukou March 12, 2021 Find out more Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes News News to go further Follow the news on China Organisation Reporters Without Borders urges the Propaganda Department to lift the censorship imposed on a joint editorial in 13 Chinese daily newspapers calling for the elimination of the internal passport system known as the “hukou.” The press freedom organisation has learned that journalists working for news media that published the editorial have been threatened with punishment.“Initiating a debate about the hukou on the eve of a session of the National People’s Congress in Beijing was a very positive move,” Reporters Without Borders said. “But, as usual, the Communist Party’s Propaganda Department reacted with censorship and repression. This insult to common sense is yet another example of the tension between Propaganda Department conservatives and pro-reform media.”The press freedom organisation added: “We urge Prime Minister Wen Jiabao and National People’s Congress chairman Wu Bangguo to order the lifting of all press censorship, a Chinese disease that prevents useful debates from getting under way.”Published by 13 newspapers in such places as Guangdong, Henan, Fujian and Chongqing on 1 March, the joint editorial called for the end of the hukou, a system introduced during the Maoist era that prevents many Chinese, especial rural residents, from moving to other parts of the country. “China has long suffered from the Hukou system,” the editorial said. “We think that citizens are born free and should have the right to freedom of movement. We urge delegates to do everything possible to propose a hukou reform timetable.”The editorial was removed from websites within hours of its appearance. The special pages dedicated to hukou reform which the Economic Observer, one of the newspapers responsible for the editorial, had created on its website (www.eeo.com.cn) were quickly suppressed. Even the very official People’s Daily was forced to take the editorial down shortly after posting it. The foreign press was meanwhile hailing the courageous initiative.Censorship continues to be a “Chinese disease” because of the Propaganda Department and local authorities. Editors often receive written or oral directives forbidding them to cover a national or international story. Sometimes the order instructs them to limit themselves to using the official version of the events. Here are some recent examples:Another tainted milk scandal hushed upWhen a new tainted milk scandal erupted at the start of this year, the Propaganda Department in the southern province of Guangdong prevented the publication of independently-reported articles on the subject. Previously, in September 2008, a Propaganda Department directive told media to restrict the publication of articles or comments about baby formula contaminated with melamine that had caused severe renal lesions in hundreds of Chinese babies.Censorship of a TV series about housing problemsThe TV series “Place to live,” showing the everyday lives of young people trying to find accommodation, was censored last November. A Beijing TV station was forced to terminate the series after broadcasting just two episodes. This act of “self-censorship” was reportedly the result of complaints by real estate developers and government officials who felt offended. The series highlighted the difficulties of “housing slaves” forced to allocate much of their salaries to paying off mortgages. Some extracts from the series:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cC_E6ZJOIP0http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRlyO6R44Nc&feature=relatedhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wp3ittCupXw&feature=related China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures Reports of a suspicious death censored in Hubei provinceIrate residents of Shishou, in the central province of Hubei, refused to believe the official version that the death of a Yonglong Hotel cook, Tu Yuangao, was a case of suicide. Their suspicion was due in part to the illegal activities that reputedly took place in the hotel, in which Shishou’s mayor has shares. More than 200 people were injured in clashes with the police when demonstrations were staged outside. The Propaganda Department ordered the media to report only the official versions of the cook’s death and the protests.Official violence protected by censorshipWhen two local government officials in a district of Hubei province sexually assaulted a young waitress, Deng Yujiao, last year she defended herself and killed one of them. Accused by the police of intentional homicide, Deng received a lot of support on the Internet. A court finally convicted her of using excessive force in legitimate self-defence and she was released. The Propaganda Department initially censored coverage of the case.
