first_imgTuesday 18 January 2011 8:09 am The new head of Santander UK has told the Treasury Select Committee she intends to take part in the government’s plan to boost business lending.Ana Patricia Botin, who started as Santander’s UK chief executive on December 1 after former boss Antonio Horta-Osorio was poached to run Lloyds Banking Group, said she remained in talks with the government over “Project Merlin”, which aims to boost lending and cap pay for bankers.Botin indicated that Santander would potentially take the lending target on alone rather than as part of a group target.“We support the overall objectives of Merlin. Our intention is to participate specifically in the lending commitments … in our own way,” Botin said.The Spanish bank may prefer to sign up for an individual lending target, rather than joining rivals with a group target.Botin was speaking to the Parliamentary committee as part of a probe into industry competition. She said she did not support forcing banks to split investment banking from retail banks.Shares in Santander rose four per cent this morning, outpacing a two per cent rise in the European index and shares in Banesto, majority owned by Santander, rose 3.9 per cent, showing investors were unperturbed by the report.Jayne-Anne Gadhia, chief executive of Virgin Money, earlier told the committee she supported the separation of investment banking and retail banking to reduce risk-taking.“It is an extreme solution, but we have seen extreme times,” Gadhia said. alison.lock Santander boss supports government’s lending plan More From Our Partners Police Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Heraldmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comcenter_img whatsapp Share Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Generating a steady stream of passive income is the ultimate goal for many investors. Sitting back and reaping the profits while others manage the business I’m invested in? Yes, please.If only it were as easy as that. My colleague Jonathan Smith worked out how much capital you would need to start generating a passive income of £1,000 per month. Spoiler alert — around £166,666 invested in certain dividend stocks would do the trick. While that is a figure to aspire to, I’d be happy with a smaller amount every month to supplement my other income streams.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…One way I would do that is to buy a handful of FTSE 100 shares with generous dividend yields. Dividends are payouts given to shareholders in a company when the company is doing well and profits are strong. Two FTSE 100 companies I think could provide passive income in the long term are Aviva (LSE:AV) and British American Tobacco (LSE:BATS).Strong yieldInsurance giant Aviva is a dividend stock I like that has room to grow this year. The company has one of the highest yields in the FTSE 100 currently. If I bought at the current share price of 360p, the yield stands at 7.5%. With a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 5.68, the Aviva share price seems to be on the cheaper side of the Footsie. Of course, if the share price were to stall or lose value while I hold the investment, then the yield would be redundant.Aviva shares have dropped around 11% in the last year. That may sound ominous, but that is broadly in line with the FTSE 100 index as a whole, which has fallen 10%. So far, investors appear pleased with new CEO Amanda Blanc. Blanc is working to make the business more efficient its core markets of UK, Ireland, and Canada. I’m backing the company to return its share price to growth this year. As a result I would add Aviva to my portfolio for the passive income it could generate through its dividend yield.Changing businessAnother company I’d consider adding to my portfolio for passive income is British American Tobacco. As the name suggests, tobacco products remain their key brands. However, the company has recognised the need to move towards newer products due to the health risks associated with cigarettes.The company’s revenues have not been impacted by Covid-19 as much as had previously been expected. With its quarterly earnings report and forecasts to be released Wednesday, analysts have projected organic topline revenue growth of 6.7% in 2021.At its current share price of 2630p, British American Tobacco shares return a dividend yield of more than 8%. An attractive prospect for income investors.There is risk involved in buying shares of the company, however. Not least is the move towards a more health-conscious population, which is increasingly shunning cigarettes. More investors than ever now focus on ethical investing. The company is unlikely to make it into these portfolios any time soon.For now though, the projected revenue growth and 8% dividend yield mean I would add British American Tobacco to my passive income portfolio.last_img read more

It might have been through the time the was spent together, helping a friend pack his house as he was preparing to move.  Perhaps it was because that friend put his or her entire schedule on hold in order to spend time with you at a hospital waiting room. People remember the acts of those whose love was more than mere words – their love was proven by tangible giving of themselves.That is why that, at a funeral, what is remembered and shared are the things that truly mean the MOST…one’s heart, and love for others, that was given freely during his life.  That is what is remembered, and recounted with deep, appreciative emotion.Funerals also do another important thing…they cause us to pause for personal reflection, perhaps for an inventory.  It is a time to ask, “What is it that I am doing with my life? Am I spending my time and effort on the accumulation of material goods?  Or am I freely giving away to others from my heart, and from the many blessings that I’ve been given?”  I pray that the latter would be the legacy that we leave behind.  If it is, then it doesn’t just mean we died well…it means that we lived well.Feature photo by Alice Donovan of Unsplash.

One of the actions, brought by the interior ministry, accuses them of “attacking an emblem of the kingdom.” The other, brought by Ismaïl himself, is demanding 266,000 euros in damages for “failing to accord due respect to a member of the royal family.” The newspaper’s headquarters have meanwhile been closed and are being guarded by police.

There are many incidents of people sent through agents sold out to locals. Women workers are harassed and forced to become sex workers. In some cases women workers were beaten and locked up in houses” – Excerpt of PleaIn this context, the petition states that Indian embassies must work proactively and adopt effective measures to bring back those workers who are suffering the other countries through exchange programs and good will gestures.”A large number of Indians from the respondent States are going/gone to the Gulf and other countries for doing jobs as labour, drivers, helpers, salespersons, domestic workers etc. Most of the workers are uneducated or under-educated,” the plea reads.The PIL has also claimed that women workers in foreign countries are forced to become sex workers while in some cases women workers were beaten and locked up in houses.Apropos this, the plea urges the court to frame guidelines and set up a grievance redressal cell to bring back the dead bodies of Indian citizens who have died abroad and to give financial aid/insurance and legal aid to the families of the deceased.Next Storylast_img read more
