Around 44,000 people have signed up to the hire programme, and are between them making up to 14,000 journeys per day. Around 70 extra docking stations are under construction, bringing the total number of docks to over 400. Boris Johnson cheered the milestone yesterday. “These are the early days of the scheme, and we are still learning and improving the system. I appreciate Londoners’ patience and would ask everyone to bear with us.” He added: “However it is now clear that, with 100,000 journeys already made, there is an indefatigable enthusiasm for cycling that is making Barclays Cycle Hire one of the city’s success stories.” More From Our Partners Florida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.org980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child‘The Love Boat’ captain Gavin MacLeod dies at 90nypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at TfL signs up 44,000 to use Barclays Cycle Hire center_img whatsapp Share whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Nasdaq could spend a year on NYSE fight

first_img whatsapp Nasdaq could spend a year on NYSE fight NASDAQ OMX chief executive Robert Greifeld said he was willing to fight for a year to gain his prize of a merger with the NYSE Euronext yesterday.Speaking at Nasdaq OMX’s first-quarter results, Greifeld said it and partner IntercontinentalExchange would pursue their bid, a rival to NYSE Euronext’s planned tie-up with Deutsche Boerse, to the “endgame”.He said the two exchanges hoped to add to the current offer – sweetened on Tuesday by an additional $350m (£215m) break fee and the promise of cash to shareholders immediately – to make it “fully reflective” of NYSE Euronext’s value.“We are keenly aware that we were uninvited,” Greifeld said on the group’s results call. “But that has the ability to change as we put things on the table that obviously are attractive to shareholders [and that] will also be attractive to the NYSE board.”Greifeld said he would continue to try to convince NYSE shareholders of the benefits of the unsolicited bid. Investors were primarily concerned that the deal could be blocked by competition regulators as it would give the combined entity about 52 per cent of the entire US equities market, he said. Nasdaq has given “reams of data” about the plan to the US Justice Department and he added that he had already held two face-to-face meetings with officials at the department.Nasdaq’s results showed it had shrugged off the costs of the merger bid to date to deliver record net profit per share. It rose 42 per cent to $0.61 from the $0.43 generated in first-quarter 2010. Group revenues rose 15 per cent to $415m, from $360m in 2010, despite gaining only a 19 per cent share of the US equities market between its three platforms. The group squeezed higher profits from its cash equities business, driving net revenues to $62m from $55m in 2010 despite seeing shares traded in the quarter fall to 94.8bn, from 126.2bn in 2010.Derivatives trading also proved lucrative, with the business yesterday reporting a 31 per cent rise in trading revenues to $80m, from $61m in 2010.

Here’s how I’d invest £20,000 in FTSE 100 shares in an ISA today to make a million

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Image source: Getty Images. Peter Stephens has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. 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. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Investing your full annual ISA allowance of £20,000 in FTSE 100 shares may not necessarily produce high returns in the short run. The index’s recent performance suggests that it could experience a volatile period – especially since risks such as a second wave of coronavirus remain in place.However, over the long run, buying FTSE 100 shares while they offer margins of safety could be a means of producing impressive growth rates. It could even help to make you a million at a time when few other mainstream assets offer attractive risk/reward opportunities.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…FTSE 100 margin of safetyThe FTSE 100 continues to trade significantly down on its 2020 starting price despite its recent rebound. This could be an opportunity for investors with a long time horizon to capitalise on low valuations across the index. Many sectors, including banking, retail and resources contain high-quality businesses that are facing the prospect of weak operating conditions. As such, they may offer margins of safety that produce favourable risk/reward opportunities.Since the index has a sound track record of recovering from every one of its previous downturns, buying undervalued shares could be a sound move. It may allow you to capitalise on the volatile nature of the stock market to buy businesses when they are trading at low prices, and sell them when they occupy higher price points.Dividend sharesMany FTSE 100 companies may not offer an especially attractive income opportunity in the short run. An uncertain economic outlook means that some companies have cancelled dividends, while others may be slow to raise them.However, over the coming years, dividend shares could become increasingly popular. Low interest rates are set to make it increasingly challenging to generate a worthwhile passive income from your capital. This could boost demand for high-yielding stocks, as well as those companies that are able to post rising dividends in the coming years. The end result could be rising stock prices that further enhance your portfolio’s valuation.Financial stabilityAs well as focusing on FTSE 100 stocks that offer margins of safety and dividend potential, investing in financially-stable companies could be a sound move. The economy is likely to be in a recession for at least part of 2020, which could mean that only the strongest businesses survive. Therefore, taking the time to assess a stock’s balance sheet and economic moat before buying it could be extremely effective in avoiding losses and making stronger gains.Of course, a weak economic outlook means investor sentiment could shift rapidly. Therefore, there could be difficulties ahead for investors. But by adopting a long-term time horizon and buying high-quality income shares at low prices you can increase your chances of obtaining high returns. It may even lead to a seven-figure portfolio in the coming years.

More women than men resign in charity sector

first_img More women than men have resigned from their jobs in the charity sector in the last year, according to a new survey. Findings from the Chartered Management Institute and Remuneration Economics show that resignation rates among women in the charity sector stand at 9.7 per cent, up from four per cent last year. Resignation rates are lower among men in the sector at 2.4 per cent, in keeping with figures that show women are more likely to quit their jobs. Fewer women than men are also likely to ask for ‘internal transfers’ if they are dissatisfied with their jobs.Women generally enjoy faster career progression than men. The average female team leader is five years younger than her male counterpart, and female department heads are three years younger than their male equivalent.

Despite the weight of legislation and the reality that reward should match responsibility, gender bias seems to be getting worse, not better.However, the proportion of women as part of the UK workforce is still growing with 35.7 per cent of managers and directors being female against 31 per cent in 2006.center_img About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Government bans Pakistani stations in Kashmir

first_img to go further Help by sharing this information India: RSF denounces “systemic repression” of Manipur’s media Organisation April 27, 2021 Find out more IndiaAsia – Pacific News News RSF_en Indian journalist wrongly accused of “wantonly” inaccurate reporting Follow the news on Indiacenter_img Reporters Without Borders calls on the federal government in New Delhi to explain why cable TV operators in the northwestern state of Jammu and Kashmir have been forbidden to carry several Pakistani TV channels. The organisation calls on the Indian authorities in charge of regulating the broadcast media to lift the ban and find a lasting solution that allows Kashmiris to watch the stations they want.“All TV stations should, it is true, comply with the law and register with the authorities, but this ban is a violation of the right to information, which is protected by the Indian constitution,” the press freedom organisation said. “Now that relations between New Delhi and Islamabad are being normalised and Pakistan is starting to loosen its grip on privately-owned TV stations, this measure sends a negative signal and has deprived millions of homes of news and information.”Cable TV operators in Srinagar, the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir, suspended broadcasting of the privately-owned Pakistani channels Geo TV, ARY and Aaj and the state-owned Pakistani channel PTV at the behest of the authorities in New Delhi on 24 April.The Indian ministry of information and broadcasting said the Pakistani stations had failed to comply with an Indian broadcasting law which, since 11 November 2005, has required any foreign TV station to register with the Indian authorities and obtain permission in order to broadcast in India.The Pakistani TV stations are very popular with the Kashmiri population, which is mainly Muslim. Some observers wonder what has pushed the Indian authorities to suspend this stations now, after tolerating them for several years.Criticising the measure, the Pakistan Federal Union of Journalists (PFUJ) said: “This obstacle to the free flow of information is anti-democratic. It must be lifted.”Many political groups in Srinagar have variously condemned the measure as “irrational” and “illogical in an era of communication and globalization.” They have also said it could jeopardise rapprochement between India and Pakistan and “reinforce the most radical groups.” RSF demands release of detained Indian journalist Siddique Kappan, hospitalised with Covid-19 April 29, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Government bans Pakistani stations in Kashmir News IndiaAsia – Pacific March 3, 2021 Find out more News Receive email alerts February 23, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Credit: CaltechThe UNC School of Medicine has awarded the 17th Perl-UNC Neuroscience Prize to David Anderson, PhD, the Seymour Benzer Professor of Biology at the California Institute of Technology for “his discovery of neural circuit mechanisms controlling emotional behaviors.”Anderson will visit Chapel Hill April 12 to receive the prize – a $20,000 cash award – and give a lecture on his work at 3 p.m. in room G202 in the Medical Biomolecular Research Building (MBRB), with a reception to follow.“David is a remarkable scientist who conducted seminal research uncovering the neural circuits key to innate behaviors associated with emotional states, such as defensive behaviors and aggression,” said Mark Zylka, PhD, director of the UNC Neuroscience Center. “Frankly, David could have also won the Perl Prize for the important work he accomplished earlier in his career on neural stem cell fate and differentiation. We look forward to welcoming him here in Chapel Hill as our 17th recipient of this prize honoring the late Dr. Edward Perl.”Anderson, who is the Director of the Tianqiao and Chrissy Chen Institute for Neuroscience at Caltech and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator, received his undergraduate degree from Harvard and doctorate from the Rockefeller University. He joined Caltech in 1986. He was the first scientist to isolate a multipotent self-renewing stem cell for neurons and glial cells, the two main cell types in the brain. Anderson’s lab identified growth factors and regulatory proteins that control whether stem cells differentiate into neurons or glial cells. He also made critical contributions to understanding nerve-blood vessel interactions.Anderson is now using cutting-edge techniques to map and manipulate neural circuits that underlie emotional behaviors in both mice and fruit flies. These innate behavioral responses and associated internal states form the evolutionary underpinnings of emotional behavior in higher organisms. These studies may ultimately aid in a better understanding of human psychiatric disorders.In 2007, Anderson was elected to the National Academy of Sciences.“I am both surprised and thrilled to have been chosen for this prestigious award by the prominent neuroscientists on the Perl Prize committee, which has shown such exceptional taste in its selection of previous awardees,” Anderson said. “The recognition that this prize bestows belongs equally to the talented students and postdoctoral researchers who have trained in my laboratory, without whose effort and brilliance the work that is honored here would not have come to fruition.”The Perl-UNC Neuroscience Prize is increasingly well known among biomedical scientists. Six of its previous winners went on to win the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine or the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Two other Perl-UNC Neuroscience Prize recipients went on to win the Kavli Prize, which to neuroscientists has become nearly as prestigious as the Nobel.The Perl-UNC Neuroscience Prize, established in 2000, is named after former UNC professor Edward Perl, MD, who discovered that a specific type of sensory neuron responded to painful stimuli. Before this, scientists thought that neurons responded to all stimuli and then the pain responses were sorted out in the spinal cord. The discovery had a major impact on the field of pain research, particularly in the development of pain medications.Dr. Perl passed away in 2014. Read more about his research in this remembrance.Along with Mark Zylka, the Perl-UNC Neuroscience Prize selection committee consists of Tom Jessell, PhD, HHMI investigator and the Claire Tow Professor in the Department of Neuroscience and the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics at Columbia University; William Snider, MD, professor of cell biology and physiology and founding director of the UNC Neuroscience Center; Ben Philpot, PhD, professor of Cell Biology and Physiology and associate director of the UNC Neuroscience Center; Thomas Albright, PhD, Conrad T. Prebys Chair in Vision Research at the Salk Institute; Vanessa Ruta, PhD, the Gabriel H. Reem & Herbert J. Kayden Assistant Professor of Neurophysiology & Behavior at Rockefeller University; Julie Kauer, professor of neurosciences & medical sciences at Brown University; and Regina Carelli, the Stephen B.
