The decision was made by Iberia’s board, which met yesterday to decide whether it should approve the proposals set out by BA chief executive Willie Walsh.Iberia’s decision means the merger plans, which have already received EU clearance, will gather pace. Under the merger agreement, Iberia had the right to back out of the $8bn (£5bn) tie-up if it didn’t like BA’s proposals for plugging the black hole in its pension fund. A statement from Iberia said: “This decision represents another step forward in the merger process.”The final approval will be left in the hands of both sets of shareholders, who will vote on the tie-up in November.BA shareholders will own 56 per cent of the newly merged company, which will be called International Airlines Group. The remaining 44 per cent will be held by Iberia shareholders.In June, BA detailed its pension recovery plan, which commits to annual contributions of £330m, with a three per cent rise every year. whatsapp KCS-content Tags: NULL

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. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” See all posts by Kevin Godbold By the time 40 rolls around, many people start thinking about an exit strategy from work. I know I did. And my plan is to retire rich with shares.It’s a well-trodden path to take. And the growing army of ISA millionaires in the UK proves people are achieving their aim.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…How I’m aiming to retire rich with sharesI reckon starting at the age of 40 from a position of having no savings means there are around 30 years ahead to build a retirement pot of money. It’s achievable, but I wouldn’t want to make too many investment mistakes along the way.And one question is crucial to success. What shares or share-backed investments should I put my money in? And this is an area where it’s easy to make some big mistakes that could keep me from achieving my goal of retiring rich with shares.For example, I reckon there are only a few shares of individual companies that could make worthwhile long-term investments. Indeed, many businesses have cyclical operations unsuitable for buy-and-forget investments, in my view.I’m thinking of enterprises such as the banks, housebuilders, airlines, miners, oil companies and many retailers. They all have operations that tend to ebb and flow according to the prevailing general economic conditions. And there’s a risk a long-term investment could cycle up and down without making much overall progress over 30 years.The cyclical companies can make decent investments at times. But the investment period needs to be shorter and the strategy active, requiring more portfolio management time from an investor. However, some companies strike me as being more suitable for a long-term investment. And many of them can be found in less cyclical and more defensive sectors. For example, the branded, fast-moving-consumer-goods sector is a good hunting ground. As is healthcare, IT, technology and utilities.Achieving consistent returnsIndeed, some companies have an impressive record of delivering consistent, cash-backed shareholder returns. Those returns arrive as shareholder dividends and, in many cases, as capital growth from a rising share price. So, if I can find a company operating in a defensive sector and growing its earnings a little each year as well, I could be onto a decent long-term investment.I’d look at big names such as Unilever, AstraZeneca, Diageo, GlaxoSmithKline and Reckitt Benckiser. All these firms have the potential to become decent long-term compounding machines in my portfolio. As do National Grid, SSE, Smith & Nephew, Bunzl and Sage. And I’d also consider smaller operators such as AG Barr, Cranswick, Nichols and Britvic.I reckon the best way to build a decent retirement fund with shares is to achieve a decent annualised rate of return. Then to compound those returns and, finally, to add new money at regular intervals. Indeed, for me, a monthly payment into my investment account is ideal because it goes out of my current account as soon as my wages arrive.

Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Submit an Event Listing September 28, 2012 at 9:40 am Just maybe Eau Claire’s new vision of the episcopate will be the first small step for the Episcopal Church at large in moving the ministry of bishop from a business CEO model to a contemporary reflection of the historic episcopate wherein bishops are faithfully and chiefly pastors (especially to the clergy), theologians and teachers, and individuals who, prayerfully and lovingly and joyfully, proclaim the Gospel in word and deed not only to the church, but to this broken world. September 18, 2012 at 9:29 pm The idea of returning to the original practice of a bishop being the rector of a church, having a small number of parishes / missions to support and lead is functional because of the current ability to concentrate energy and save time through email / conference calls, bookkeeping, communications, publications, the diocese and the various subjects for discussion. The diocese will not be in the dark ages–it will enjoy the new sunlight that has long been forgotten–a bishop that knows, understands and supports clergy as the work together with the laity to present Jesus’ announcement of God’s claim of Kingship of the world here and now, and our devotion and faith in that reality.

They are:The Rev. Robert B. Clarke, priest-in-charge, Holy Apostles’ Church, Oneida, Wisconsin (Diocese of Fond du Lac);The Rev. Richard E. Craig III, former rector, St. John the Baptist, Portage, Wisconsin (Diocese of Milwaukee);The Rev. Arthur B. Hancock, vicar, Episcopal Church of the Ascension, Hayward, Wisconsin (Diocese of Eau Claire); andThe Rev. W. Jay Lambert, rector, St. James Episcopal Church, Leesburg, Florida (Diocese of Central Florida).The search process has run exclusively by application. There will be no nomination process and no petition process.All candidates will be in the Diocese of Eau Claire for public gatherings, known as “walkabouts,” during the week starting Oct. 7.The election is scheduled for Nov. 9 during a meeting of the Diocesan Convention in Chippewa Falls.Under the canons (111.11.4) of the Episcopal Church, a majority of bishops exercising jurisdiction and diocesan Standing Committees must consent to the bishop-elect’s ordination as bishop within 120 days of receiving notice of the election.The sixth bishop’s position will be part time, averaging roughly 20 hours per week. “The ideal candidate will be able to support himself or herself through a part-time position, provide vision for new ways of working in the Episcopal Church, and an energetic spirituality that will nurture the wide variety of people to whom we minister,” according to information posted on the diocesan website.Eau Claire’s fifth bishop Keith B. Whitmore left the diocese in April 2008 to become assisting bishop in the Diocese of Atlanta. The diocese has since been served part time by Provisional Bishop Edwin Leidel.The Diocese of Eau Claire includes 21 congregations, most of which are small and rural, throughout the northwestern third of the state of Wisconsin.

It will force the diocese to be abundantly clear about their expectations of their bishop, and, eventually, just as clear about their expectation of priests, deacons and laity. This step is the first step in the critical reorganization of the catholic church. It might even lead to a realistic discussion of small congregation ministry.I pray that the bishop who is elected will have his personal boundaries firmly in place not only for his own sake, and that of his family, but to allow the diocese to take up the slack and share the power of the episcopate.

RSF_en Follow the news on Tunisia Forum on Information and Democracy 250 recommendations on how to stop “infodemics” Receive email alerts November 11, 2020 Find out more Help by sharing this information President Nicolas Sarkozy’s claim yesterday, at the start of an official visit to Tunisia, that respect for freedom is growing there was condemned today as “unacceptable” by Reporters Without Borders, which wondered if Sarkozy had confused Tunisia with another country.“Freedom of expression is still just a dream in Tunisia,” the press freedom organisation said. “All the press can do is praise President Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali’s record. Independent journalists and their families are subject to constant harassment, Human rights activists and unionists are exposed to the same treatment.“This is a stab in the back of the Tunisian activists who expected a great deal from President Sarkozy’s visit. During his previous visit to Tunisia, the Elysée Palace boasted of raising the case of political prisoner Mohammed Abbou, who was released a few days later. This time Sarkozy is accompanied by dozens of businessmen and he has changed his approach. He has praised President Ben Ali although there has been no improvement in human rights. The difference is incomprehensible.“Mr. President, France can continue to do business with Tunisia while remaining lucid about the political reality in that country. Do not despise those in Tunisia who are fighting to make their voices heard at risk to their safety and freedom. Reporters Without Borders and many other human rights organisations are not allowed into Tunisia. Your presence should, more than ever, be used to promote the basis freedom that are constantly flouted there.”Shortly after arriving yesterday for a three-day official visit, Sarkozy said: “In a country where I come as a friend and I am received as a friend, I do not see why I would take it upon myself to give lessons. Today, the space for freedom is growing. I have full confidence in your desire to continue to expand the space for freedom.”President since 1987, Ben Ali is regarded by Reporters Without Borders as one of the world’s 34 worst “press freedom predators.” Tunisia was ranked 145th out of 169 countries in the world press freedom index compiled by Reporters Without Borders last October.Slim Boukhdir, correspondent of the London-based Al Quds Al Arabi newspaper and the Al-Arabiya TV station’s website, is serving a one-year sentence in Sfax (230 km south of Tunis). He was arrested on the outskirts of Sfax on 26 November after an argument with policemen who were following him. The conditions in which he is being held are very disturbing.Two members of the staff of the weekly Al-Maoukif, the mouthpiece of the opposition Progressive Democratic Party (PDP), began a hunger strike on the eve of Sarkozy’s arrival in protest against the repeated seizures of their newspaper. The police have seized four of the five latest issues from news stands without telling the staff. Al-Maoukif does not get any of the government subsidies that all newspapers are supposed to receive, and it does not get any state advertising. It therefore relies totally on its sales and the staff fears it could be forced to close for lack of funds if the seizures continue.

In Iran, the right to information is still seen as a threat to national security.”The commission accused Zanan of “offering a sombre picture of the Islamic Republic,” “compromising its readers’ mental health” and “publishing morally questionable information.” Editor Shahla Sherkat, who disputes the legal validity of the charges, said she had not yet been officially notified of the suspension. Regarded as the country’s leading feminist magazine, it has been a forum for debating Iranian society’s most controversial topics since its creation 16 years ago.Dozens of news media have been suspended by the commission since Mahmoud Ahmadinejad became president. Deputy state prosecutor Nasser Saraji told the official news agency ISNA in October that the commission had suspended 42 publications and cancelled 24 licences since 2005. Other newspapers have been temporarily or provisionally suspended by the courts. Those suspended since October include Krafto, Ashati, Arzesh, Bilmaj and Madareseh.Yaghoub is being prosecuted for covering a women’s demonstration on 4 March 2007, when she was arrested and held for three days. She is charged with “participating in an illegal demonstration,” “activity against national security” and “publicity against the Islamic Republic.”Other journalists and cyber-feminists who attended the demonstration are also still being prosecuted. But journalist and blogger Asieh Amini (www.varesh.blogfa.com), independent journalist Fatemeh Govarayee and activist Susan Tahmassebi, the editor of the English-language version of www.we4change.info were acquitted on 21 January.
