whatsapp EGYPTIAN President Hosni Mubarak declared yesterday that he was “fed-up” with public service but couldn’t leave his post immediately for fear of sparking further violence, as the official death toll on the nation’s streets rose into double figures. Mubarak told ABC News in an interview that “after 62 years in public service, I have had enough… if I resign today there will be chaos.” His comments were not enough to quell the chaos centred around Tahrir Square in Cairo where pro-democracy campaigners plan to stage a decisive protest today. More than 1,000 people have already been injured in the riots.Oil prices remained jumpy yesterday, hitting another 28-month high at $103.37 (£64.07) a barrel before closing down at $101.76 for March Brent crude futures. whatsapp Mubarak claims he can’t leave as protesters rage Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofHomemade Tomato Soup: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof Show Comments ▼ KCS-content Thursday 3 February 2011 8:22 pm by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailThe No Cost Solar ProgramGet Paid To Install Solar + Tesla Battery For No Cost At Install and Save Thousands.The No Cost Solar ProgramBlood Pressure Solution4 Worst Blood Pressure MedsBlood Pressure SolutionHero WarsThis game will keep you up all night!Hero WarsOne-N-Done | 7-Minute Workout7 Minutes a Day To a Flat Stomach By Using This 1 Easy ExerciseOne-N-Done | 7-Minute WorkoutTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastLuxury SUVs | Search AdsThese Cars Are So Loaded It’s Hard to Believe They’re So CheapLuxury SUVs | Search AdsBlood Pressure For LifeWhy Doctors May No Longer Prescribe Blood Pressure MedsBlood Pressure For LifeAll Things Auto | Search AdsNew Cadillac’s Finally On SaleAll Things Auto | Search Ads Share Tags: NULL

See all posts by Roland Head If you could buy a house for less than half its advertised price, would you do it?You might be tempted. But I suspect that you’d stop and ask yourself why it was so cheap. Has the property been reduced for a quick sale? If so, why?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…Today I want to look at a property stock that currently trades at a 67% discount to its book value, and offers a dividend yield of 11%.This stock could be a bargain for brave buyers who can go against the trend. But the current share price could also be a sign that this business has shaky foundations.An impressive historyThe company concerned is FTSE 250-listed REIT Hammerson (LSE: HMSO). This real estate investment trust has been listed on the London market since 1954, making it one of the older stocks on the market today.Hammerson’s flagship properties include London’s Brent Cross shopping centre and the Birmingham Bullring. Properties such as this – and many more – have provided attractive dividends for shareholders over the last 30 years, although the payout has been cut on a few occasions.Bad timingHowever, over the last few years, Hammerson has been caught on the wrong side of the retail property slump. In 2018, the company’s rental income fell by 6.2% as tenants moved out or negotiated lower rents. The value of Hammerson’s property portfolio fell by 5.9% to £9,938m. Unfortunately, the trust wasn’t able to repay debt quickly enough to offset this decline, so its loan-to-value ratio rose from 40% to 43%.In the first half of 2019, things got worse. Rental income fell by 12.3% to £156.6m, and the value of Hammerson’s property slid 4% to £9,542m. Its loan-to-value ratio rose again, to 46%.Throughout this time, the company had held its generous dividend unchanged, even though chief executive David Atkins said his “absolute priority remains to reduce debt”.Instead of cutting the dividend, Atkins has been selling property to repay debt. But an update on Friday suggests to me that this process is becoming quite desperate.OuchWould you knock 22% off the price of your house for a quick sale? I suspect you’d only agree to this if you were desperate. But that’s exactly what Hammerson has done with its latest property disposal.On Friday, the company said that it had sold seven retail parks across the UK for £400m. This represented “a discount to a June 2019 book value of 22.2%”. I can only see two ways to read this. One is that property prices for retail parks are really crashing hard. I suspect prices are falling, but I don’t think they’re falling as fast as that. The other explanation is that Hammerson is becoming a distressed seller, desperately flogging assets to raise cash. In this scenario, the sale price would make sense to me.What next?Hammerson hasn’t yet cut its dividend. But the company is due to issue its 2019 results on Tuesday and I believe investors should be prepared for a cut.Even if the company doesn’t cut the payout this time, my analysis of the firm’s latest accounts suggests that the dividend is unaffordable and will eventually be chopped. In my view, Hammerson is a stock to avoid under its current management.

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS This video features the nominees with the top touchdowns from the first 20 rounds of the Premiership – take a look and let us know your favourite… May’s day: Gloucester’s Jonny May is in the running for Try of the Season with this effort against HarlequinsThere have been plenty of quality tries during this season’s Aviva Premiership, from Jonny May’s individual effort against Harlequins to Manu Tuilagi finishing off a team move at Northampton, but what’s the best of the lot? The judges have cast their votes and the winner of Try of the Season will be announced at the Aviva Premiership Awards on Tuesday 8 May – but what do you think?
Surveying the scene: Stuart Lancaster has a lot to keep his eye on in the build-up to the New Zealand tour Diligent as he is, Lancaster will have worked out every permutation. Some of them are quite encouraging, too. A Saracens-Leicester final – not unlikely given the Fez-heads’ form and Tigers’ track-record at Franklin’s Gardens – would leave all of the starting 15 from the win over Wales except for Owen Farrell and Nowell. That is assuming Twelvetrees recovers from an ankle tweak.Others are less kind. If Northampton and Harlequins make it, there will be a chasm of leadership and attacking spark – Hartley and Lawes is the lineout axis, Care and Mike Brown the try-scoring catalysts, Robshaw and Wood the gnarled, industrious generals. None would be in Auckland.Europe complicates matters further. Saracens face Toulon in what promises to be an eye-wateringly physical skirmish at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium for the Heineken Cup. Saints and Bath meet in the Amlin. Wasps host Stade before hopping over The Channel on May 24. Graham Rowntree could really do without an injury to Joe Launchbury over those 160 minutes.All these complications means Lancaster will be biting his fingernails for a large proportion of the ensuing weeks. Given the logistical minefield, an initial party he announces on May 15 will be sparse before other names are added 11 days later.England do possess depth. Magnificent locks Dave Attwood and Ed Slater are due an opportunity, likewise Tuilagi, who has a history of destroying New Zealand. Talk is already of a ‘hooker crisis’, but even if Hartley cannot feature at Eden Park, Dave Ward and Jamie George are very capable. That said, capable does not cut it against the All Blacks.One of three All Black blindsides: Liam Messam of the ChiefsFollowing an uncertain beginning to the Super 15, some influential Kiwis are clunking into top gear. Hurricanes number two Dane Coles is tearing around like Superman in a yellow shirt. Richie McCaw is fit again, while Ma’a Nonu and Charles Piutau look capable of ripping up any defence on Earth. Beauden Barrett is an impossibly talented fly-half. The gargantuan tussle for Steve Hansen’s blindside berth between Jerome Kaino, Liam Messam and Steven Luatua defines the task in hand for Lancaster. Ah, May – a glorious month for rugby watchers in the northern hemisphere. The sun comes out, pitches harden and drama intensifies. Last weekend in the Aviva Premiership, for instance, there was an average of almost 52 points and just under eight tries per match. That second figure was even higher than the Super 15’s corresponding statistic, which doesn’t happen very often.What is more, each of the English domestic fixtures – bar Gloucester’s high-octane encounter with London Irish – had something riding on it. These giddy score-fests did not constitute empty end-of-season jollies.Though brave Worcester Warriors finally succumbed to relegation and European places are sewn up pending Wasps’ double-header against Stade Francais, the final round retains intrigue. Leicester Tigers can strike a psychological blow to Saracens at Welford Road before the play-offs and the Twickenham Stoop plays host to what is effectively a quarter-final between Harlequins and Bath.It’s pretty exciting for everyone – everyone that is, apart from Stuart Lancaster. He might need to watch through his fingers.England’s head coach has a lot to ponder over the next month, and must feel as though his hands are tied painfully tight. An administrative error made in RFU-IRB scheduling – misjudging the June international window and then failing to amend the trip’s itinerary – means Lancaster’s side heads to New Zealand for a three-Test series just one week after the Premiership decider. None of the finalists will be available for the opening match at Eden Park, where the All Blacks are unbeaten since 1994.It’s a tour that has been on Lancaster’s radar for a long time, factored into a meticulous development plan for his burgeoning squad. A hat-trick of successive clashes with the world champions is daunting, but also an opportunity to ensure England are battle-hardened for RWC 2015 and aware of exactly what it would take to win the Webb Ellis trophy. However, this farcical situation means there is a lot of traffic to dodge.Wrap him in cotton wool?: With Dan Cole out, David Wilson will be an important figure for EnglandTake the shoot-out at the Stoop. Is it better for England if Bath or Harlequins progress? Would Lancaster rather be able to wrap George Ford and crucial tighthead David Wilson in cotton wool, or give a rest to the vital triumvirate of Danny Care, Mike Brown and skipper Chris Robshaw? It’s a fairly grim catch-22, made tougher because as intensity increases to mark the campaign’s climax, players will not let up thanks to professionalism and pride. Plus, club fans won’t accept tentativeness. Quite right, too.England’s enterprising Six Nations was more impressive for the illustrious absentees – Tom Croft, Manu Tuilagi, Geoff Parling, Alex Corbisiero, Christian Wade, Marland Yarde. On Wednesday, Lancaster confirmed that Dan Cole, Tom Youngs, Jack Nowell will not travel for varying reasons. Croft, Corbisero and Wade are to undertake full pre-seasons, while Billy Twelvetrees, Dylan Hartley and Rob Webber are in manic fitness battles. That’s more than half a team. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS In fits and starts, England resembled an excellent outfit during the Six Nations and can realistically target at least one victory. Circumstances are conspiring against them, though. It feels oddly fitting to paraphrase Coldplay lyrics: “Nobody said it was easy, but no one ever said it would be this hard.”To read our exclusive interview with England centre Manu Tuilagi, see the June 2014 issue of Rugby World, on sale until 2 June.
Could you be the Rugby World Team of the Month? If your side has a story to tell, send in your nomination now – the award is open to every amateur rugby club in the world LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS “Losing match-day revenue is a concern but lockdown has been a blessing in its own way,” chairman and flanker Keir Waller told us. “It reignited us. Some people on furlough found themselves with time to help build the player base, work our social media and develop our facilities. They were able to add that layer of paint to the changing rooms or help clear out the garden. It’s let us take stock of what we have and how to move forward.”Spirit of rugby: Surrey club Mitcham & Carshalton are at the heart of their community (Chrissy Read)Generating new sponsorship, relaunching a women’s side and completing work on a beer garden were three of their successful projects.From there we crossed the river to Hendon, who secured a league and cup double just before the first lockdown. Rather than bemoaning their luck at being unable to test themselves in London Three North-West, they did the next best thing – by creating a cluster league for the non-contact game Ready 4 Rugby.President David Gershlick was the driving force, assembling a six-team league featuring Hendon, Barnet, Mill Hill, Harrow, UCS Old Boys and Watford – two Herts clubs playing with four from Middlesex.He told us: “Enfield asked to come in and I said, ‘Sorry, I’ve kept it to six clubs but why not form your own league around your own cluster area?’ Which they’ve done very successfully.“Then our county got involved because Harrow chairman Andrew Smart is also chair of the Middlesex Competitions Committee. So the county through Andrew’s initiative have now picked up something like 30 other clubs. Wearing my Hendon hat, we became trailblazers.”New game: R4R training at Hendon, whose president established a cluster league (Tom Brownsell)Our next winner, who featured in our February 2021 issue, was Swanley Black Swans. Owen Connelly, a full-back at the Kent club, decided to launch a women’s team.“The vast majority of the players had never played rugby, and some of them not even any sport. My worry was that it might become a bit disjointed and cliquey,” said Connelly.“I couldn’t have been more wrong. They’ve bonded incredibly well. The moment any of them have any issues, any troubles, have to self-isolate, it’s ‘Anything I can do?, I’ll pick this up, drop this off’. They have a great team spirit.”Whether it’s sharing posts, fundraising for the local ambulance station or making a one-year anniversary video, the players are throwing themselves into rugby life with gusto.Recognition: Ellis Harris, Most Improved Player at Swanley Black Swans (Owen Connelly)“I don’t know what other rugby teams are like but I think I’ve been lucky,” adds Connelly, a project manager. “They just buy into everything you ask them to buy into. And do it with 100% effort and a smile on their face.”So could you be our Team of the Month? Charity work, a community project, a recruitment drive – there are any number of different reasons why you might have a story to tell that we would love to share with Rugby World readers. The award is open to any amateur club anywhere, and that includes school teams.If you think your side deserves to be the next Rugby World Team of the Month, just email [email protected] with some brief details, including a couple of photos. Could you be our Team of the Month?It has been a season like no other, with leagues in many countries cancelled because of the pandemic. Finally, there is cause for optimism as the prospect of playing matches with adapted laws hoves into view for many grass-roots clubs.Through it all, the Rugby World Team of the Month award has continued unabated – and we’re now looking for our next winner.We know there’s far more to a team than a set of match results. And this season we’ve been able to shed light on seven clubs for their efforts and achievements away from the field.Our latest winner is Gravesend Gremlins, from Kent. To find out why they caught our eye, buy our May 2021 issue to read all about them.Winning feeling: Fran Holmes, a back-row forward for Gravesend Gremlins (Joe Fathers/Fatography)They followed Cartha Queen’s Park, our second Scottish winner of the season and worthy recipients in our April 2021 issue. We were gobsmacked by the fundraising zeal of the Glasgow club, with more than £10,000 worth of food being collected for a local church foodbank and another five-digit sum raised for the Movember charity.Head coach Thomas Davidson later contacted us to highlight a new campaign that went viral and was used by clubs across the British Isles. The #DONATEAPINT campaign encouraged clubs to set up a donation page where members could donate the cost of a pint during the Six Nations, making up for some of the lost club income this season.Over the first two weekends alone at Cartha, they raised £880. GHA, another Glasgow club, raised £1,200 in the same period and Grangemouth, a team further north, raised £700. “It goes to show how much of an impact the campaign has had,” said Davidson..Get on board: the imagery created by Cartha Queen’s Park for their hugely successful Six Nations campaignInclusivity is the watchword at Bec Old Boys, who featured in our March 2021 issue. “We have players with years of experience and others who have never touched a rugby ball,” says lock Mike Allen, who doubles as the South London club’s recruitment secretary.“We’re set up to embrace every type of player, ensuring everybody gets something out of the two training sessions we provide each week. It’s what we pride ourselves on.”At the last count, they had recruited 95 new players wishing to don their boots when, fingers crossed, matches resume later this month.On the move: James Morgan in action for Bec Old Boys at the R4R Sixes at Rosslyn Park (Jonathan Knight)Winding the clock back, our first winner this season was Scottish team Stewartry. They were top of West Regional One when the 2019-20 campaign was interrupted by Covid, yet voted to nullify the season in an SRU poll because their priority was the safety of their members.Over last summer Stewartry set skills challenges, installed floodlighting, reviewed their mission statement and appointed a Covid Safety Officer in Clare Dooley. One for all: the Black Swans are a driving force at Swanley RFC – read about them below (Bresser Photos) Top Scots: Stewartry featured in our Nov 2020 issueBest of all, they ran a #clearyourhead campaign, with mental health tips from players and coaches. Stewartry have lost two members to suicide in recent years and DoR John Muir said the club “realised we had a bigger role to play than just offering rugby opportunities”.Mitcham & Carshalton were our next monthly winners. The Surrey club had won a MasterCard Community Award last season, along with promotion to the county’s fourth division, but were forced to reset their sights by the forced inactivity.

Todos los días hay nuevos acontecimientos. Ya suman 16 los muertos y los estudiantes no ceden en su empeño de tener un nuevo gobierno que sea democrático y dedicado al bienestar del pueblo. Los estudiantes han interrumpido el tránsito por la autopista de Caracas, la principal vía de acceso urbano dentro de la capital. A una invitación de Nicolás Maduro para dialogar con Estados Unidos, el presidente Barack Obama dijo que ese diálogo debe realizarse con los líderes de Venezuela. Roberto Lückert, arzobispo de Coro, dijo en una entrevista que la crisis política que vive el país es “resultado de la insensatez política del gobierno”.Ante la situación venezolana, el Presbiterio Central de la Iglesia Presbiteriana reunido a mediados de febrero dio a conocer una carta pastoral dirigida al pueblo venezolano “como un modesto aporte por la paz y el entendimiento entre los que vivimos en esta tierra de gracia”. Después de hacer un somero análisis de la situación actual, los presbiterianos dicen en su carta colectiva: “La violencia como recurso para dirimir diferencias, terminará escapando de las manos que la propician y acabará engullendo a quienes la originaron”.Unión Juárez, fundado en 1870, es un pintoresco pequeño lugar montañoso en el estado mexicano de Chiapas. Es centro turístico y a la vez un lugar de gente intransigente. Cuenta la prensa que los dirigentes del pueblo suprimieron el suministro de agua y electricidad a unas 25 familias evangélicas “por negarse a cooperar con 500 pesos por familia” para la celebración de fiestas católicas tradicionales. ¡Hace falta un buen mediador!Dos bombas caseras de mediano poder explosivo explotaron el 24 de febrero cerca de la entrada de la Catedral Anglicana de Zanzíbar. Ninguna persona resultó herida aunque sí hubo algunos daños materiales. Las bombas también afectaron el memorial donde existió el Mercado de Esclavos de Mkunazini donde ahora hay un monumento de meditación y oración. La catedral sigue con sus oficios regulares pese al peligro que existe en el lugar. En la isla hay un fuerte sentimiento de independencia de Tanzanía, 98 por ciento de la población es musulmana. La embajada de Estados Unidos ha sugerido a las mujeres “vestir decorosamente”.Como prueba de que el Vaticano ha tomado en serio el castigo a los culpables de abusos sexuales en la Iglesia Católica Romana, el papa Francisco ha destituido de su dignidad eclesiástica al obispo de Iquique, Chile, Marco Antonio Órdenes Fernández, quien afronta una investigación eclesiástica por abusos sexuales. En su lugar el papa ha nombrado a Guillermo Vera Soto, hasta ahora obispo de Calama.Alice Herz-Sommer, sobreviviente del Holocausto, ha fallecido a la edad de 110 años en Londres. Pianista destacada y miembro de una familia de intelectuales, en 1943 fue trasladada a un campo de concentración en la ciudad checa de Terezin, donde a los reos se les permitía dar conciertos. Según cálculos oficiales de los 140,000 judíos llevados allí 33,430 murieron víctimas del hambre y el maltrato. Aunque nunca supo donde murió su madre al ser arrestada o su esposo que murió en el campo de concentración de Dachau, los que la conocieron admiran su fortaleza ante la miseria, el dolor y la vejación.La arquidiócesis católica romana de Los Ángeles, la más grande de Estados Unidos, se encuentra en un proceso judicial acusada de ocultar los nombres de las víctimas de abuso sexual. Según consta en documentos oficiales el anterior arzobispo, Roger Mahony, no reveló los nombres de las víctimas para protegerlos. Se cree que desde 2006 la diócesis pagó más de 700 millones de dólares por acuerdos extra-judiciales a cientos de víctimas que presentaron demandas.El arzobispo Terence Prendergast de Ottawa, Canadá, ha decretado que en los funerales católicos en su jurisdicción quedan prohibidos sermones o pláticas alabando las bondades del difunto. “En su lugar los fieles deben emplear ese tiempo en orar por el difunto y su familia”, dijo el prelado. Debido a las protestas de los miembros de la iglesia Prendergast aceptó tres condiciones: esas palabras se pronunciarán al principio de la liturgia, no podrán tener más de tres minutos de duración y no deberán decirse desde el mismo lugar donde se leen las Escrituras.La policía de La Paz, Bolivia, ha informado que ha capturado a José Luis Bertón, pastor evangélico de una iglesia local llamada “Eklesia de La Paz” y presunto líder de una banda de secuestradores. Junto con Bertón fueron arrestados su concubina y dos familiares de ésta. En el mes pasado hubo 17 secuestros atribuido a la pandilla de Bertón. El rescate oscilaba entre 100 mil y 250 mil dólares.
