Image source: Getty Images. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Investor confidence continues to come unstuck on Thursday as concerns over runaway inflation rise. The FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 are both heavily in the red as market makers contemplate fresh interest rate hikes. However, the Kier Group (LSE: KIE) share price has had no problem gaining traction after launching a fresh share placing.The construction specialist has soared back through the £1 per share marker for the first time since mid-February 2020. At 112p per share, the Kier price was last 9% higher on the day.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…Share placingKier has risen after issuing a statement concerning a planned capital raise that it had previously touted in late April. In its full-year financials, it announced plans to raise between £190m and £240m via a share placing.Today Kier said that it plans to raise gross proceeds of £241m via a placing and open offer. It said that these funds would be used “to immediately reduce the group’s net debt and facilitate prudent investment in the business to allow the group to drive sustainable, profitable organic growth”. The construction firm ended 2020 with £353.5m worth of net debt on its books. This was up from £242.5m a year earlier.Kier said that its lenders have agreed to extend its revolving credit facility to January 2025 following a successful equity raise, as per previous guidance. The business said that this will provide it with extra balance sheet strength “as it pursues its target of a net cash position within two to three years”.Kier’s “final milestone”Commenting on the planned share placing, Kier chief executive Andrew Davies said the capital raise “represents the final milestone in the group’s strategy to simplify the group; to improve cash generation; and to strengthen our balance sheet”.Kier said it had “substantially delivered on the many self-help actions identified by management through the 2019 strategic review process”. As a consequence it considered now to be the time to complete balance sheet recapitalisation through a share placing.The company said it now has “the appropriate cost base and ‘Performance Excellence’ culture embedded throughout the group to ensure contracts are won and executed on terms and values appropriate to their risk”. The firm is targeting at least £115m of annualised cost savings (compared to 2018 levels) by the end of 2021.Kier said its medium-term plans include generating revenues of $4bn to $4.5bn and boasting an adjusted operating profit margin of 3.5%. It’s also targeting cash conversion of operating profit of 90% and a sustainable dividend policy “with dividend cover of around three times earnings”.In the meantime, City analysts think Kier’s annual earnings will rise 104% in 2021. An additional 51% rise is forecast for 2022 too. These predictions mean the business trades on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 3.5 times at current prices.  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.

To date there have been 1.7 million telephone donations. The size of the response has meant that the DEC can now wind down its appeal and focus on ensuring the money is moved to where it is need most.The DEC says that its members are now “in an excellent position to respond to the emergency”. Hundreds of thousands of people are already being provided with food, shelter, clothing, medical supplies and access to clean water and sanitation. Beth Courtier, Head of Charity Programmes at BT, which provided the secure payments facility on the DEC site, said: “We are delighted to have helped with enabling DEC to handle the enormous amount of donations they have received through the telephone lines and online. Online donations are an important part of the DEC’s fundraising strategy and will become increasingly important for other charity appeals in the future. Over 650,000 people have donated online through the DEC site since the Appeal began.”Andy Pocock, Account Director at Tango Zebra, who created, designed and served the banner ads to large ISPs which took visitors to the DEC site, said: “We are delighted to have helped DEC to raise the enormous amount of online donations they have received.”last_img read more

We’re hoping to sustain the attendance throughout the course of the semester.”The next forum is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 21.

The other four are in Florence, Italy; Seville, Spain; and two programs in London, England.The study abroad office decided to roll out these new programs for a few reasons, one major reason being that study abroad numbers have increased drastically in the past few years.“Three years ago we sent about 100 students on our spring programs. Two years ago we sent about 150 students on our spring programs and last year we sent 200 students abroad on spring programs,” said Study abroad Program Coordinator, Jesica Severson. “That’s 100 percent growth in two years, which is crazy.” In past years, TCU has sent 20 to 30 students abroad in the spring. However this past year, TCU sent 82 students just to Florence. Due to the increase in numbers, there will now be a selective admission process for students wanting to go specifically to Florence. This process will look at a student’s GPA, their course selection and relevance to Florence, a personal statement written by the applicant, and why they want to study in Florence rather than another country.“Our fashion design and merchandising majors, our interior design majors and our art history majors are definitely going to get priority in the selection process,” Severson said. “Not only is it a really good program but it’s also, in terms of fashion and design, the only semester program that they can go on in order to graduate on time.”Junior early childhood education major Madi Herron studied abroad in Florence last spring. Although Herron liked Florence, she said it would have been better if there was a smaller number of  TCU students studying with her.“I think it is better that there are smaller amounts because it was kind of a TCU bubble,” Herron said. “You’d walk by them all the time and you’d see them everywhere.”The study abroad office expects to send students to Rome from the Neeley School of Business, the College of Communication and the AddRan College of Liberal Arts. Severson said the curriculum in Rome matches very well with those specific colleges.If you could study abroad at one of TCU’s six semester programs, where would you go?Roehampton, London, EnglandWestminster, London, EnglandFlorence, ItalyRome, ItalyMadrid, SpainSeville, SpainSee results votebike tracksbike tracks Twitter Brooke Morrissy Twitter World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Nutrition students promote food safety as summer approaches Previous articleFull-time employee benefits changeNext articleBusiness School Commons project still needs funding Brooke Morrissy RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR TCU students in Florence, Italy, cook during class.

first_img Reporters Without Borders today deplored the murder of Colombian radio journalist Dennis Segundo Sánchez and said it was concerned about attempts to kill two others reporters. to go further RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America Receive email alerts RSF_en 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies News ColombiaAmericas May 13, 2021 Find out more Organisation News April 27, 2021 Find out more “The reason he was killed is not yet clear, but his death is part of the violence journalists are subjected to in Colombia,” said Reporters Without Border secretary-general Robert Ménard in a letter to the country’s general prosecutor, Luis Camilo Osorio, urging him to find and punish those responsible. Five journalists had been killed in Colombia so far this year, he noted.Reporters Without Borders estimates that more than 95 per cent of killings in Colombia go unpunished. Last year, 35 cases of murdered journalists were pending before the four judges of the government’s special human rights unit that deals with killings of media workers. In 21 cases, no suspect has been arrested for lack of resources or because of intimidation of judges, witnesses and lawyers. “The plight of journalists will not improve unless the authorities do everything they can to fight impunity,” said Ménard.Segundo Sánchez, of the radio station 95.5 Estereo in El Carmen de Bolivar, was murdered in the town on 17 July while at home with his wife. The local correspondent of the daily El Universal de Cartagena told Reporters Without Borders that a gunman had shot him four times in the head before fleeing. No police investigation of the incident has been made.Segundo Sánchez, one of the station’s veteran journalists, presented a programme on the town’s public health policy. His friends said he had not been threatened. The station went off the air for 24 hours after he was killed.Rebeca Jaramillo and Breitner Bravo, presenters of a news programme on the local TV station Notimar, in Buenaventura (in the eastern province of Valle del Cauca), escaped death on 15 July when two motorcyclists blocked their car and opened fire on them after a funeral in the city’s La Independencia district. Jaramillo, who is three months pregnant, was hit by five bullets and Bravo by three. Both were hospitalised and then transferred to a private clinic in Cali, where they are now out of danger. Local officials, who have arrested a suspect, said they knew of no previous threats to the two journalists. First suggestions were that the attacks was a personal matter unrelated to their work as journalists. But Reporters Without Borders insisted that a full and speedy enquiry be made and the results made publicBravo’s colleagues said he had received death threats from the paramilitary United Self-Defence Forces of Colombia (AUC). One Notimar journalist said a armed man, thought to be an AUC member, had once prevented the two journalists’ programme from going out. The TV station had also been threatened by local businessmen after the programme reported a racket in stolen goods.According to the provincial daily El Pais, 11 journalists have been murdered in Buenaventura in recent years, including three last year.
