Per share, it delivered $1.11 earnings, a 26 per cent decline from the $1.49 a year earlier.P&G saw sales climb two per cent to $21.3bn and the volume of goods sold rose six per cent – but it saw more volume growth in its new lower-priced products, which has weighed on its profits.“We are expanding market shares by touching and improving the lives of more consumers in more parts of the world, more completely through our innovation and expansion plans,” said chief executive Bob McDonald.Much of the decline stemmed from it delivering an unusually high second quarter result in 2009 after the sale of its pharmaceuticals business. Excluding unusual items, earnings from continuing operations were $1.13 a share, above analysts’ forecasts of $1.1. P&G stood by its fiscal 2011 forecasts, calling for earnings from continuing operations of $3.91 to $4.01 per share and organic sales growth of four to six per cent.

Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Being able to retire early is the dream of many investors. I believe it’s possible to achieve this goal with a simple saving and investing plan. Today I’m going to explain how I plan to use the FTSE 100 to get rich and retire early. Owning the FTSE 100According to my calculations, it is relatively straightforward to build a large pension pot. All you need is a set savings and investment plan. Once this is in place, it is imperative to stick to the programme and let the power of compound interest do its work. 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…Compound interest is the principle of your money making money. For example, £100 invested at an interest rate of 5% for 10 years would grow to be worth £165. Of this total, £65 is the money your money has earned. It is a simple as that. Thanks to the power of compound interest, it can be relatively straightforward to build a life-changing sum of money with minimal effort. Over the past 35 years, the FTSE 100 has produced an average total return for investors of around 8% per annum. On this basis, £1,000 invested in the index three-and-a-half decades ago, would be worth £16,300 today. The initial investment of £1,000 would have earned £15,300 of interest during the time frame.A little every month goes a long wayIn my opinion, the best way to make the most of the wealth-creating power of the stock market is to set-up a regular investment plan. Following this strategy requires minimal effort. Investors only need to choose an investment to buy and set up a direct debit. Then they can sit back and watch their money grow. Going back to the example above, if an additional £100 were added every month to the initial £1,000 FTSE 100 investment, the pot would be worth just under £250,000 after 35 years. That’s a big difference.  You don’t need to be a stock market whizz kid or millionaire to follow this strategy. Most online share-dealing brokers now offer regular investment plans, with monthly contributions starting from as little as £25.I firmly believe that this is the best way to build a sizeable financial nest egg. Once the investment and savings plan is set up, all you need to do is make sure you are saving enough to invest every month. The stock market and compound interest will then take care of the rest. The bottom lineSo that’s how I plan to get rich and retire early by using FTSE 100.Anyone can follow this strategy, although the figures will vary from person to person. Some investors might want to put away more every month to build a larger final pot.That’s fine, as long as you have a target in mind. The principles of regular investing and compound interest will continue to apply no matter how much or little money you decide to contribute every month. center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Here’s why your local TV news is about to get even worse

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply The Anatomy of Fear Please enter your comment! You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here By Margot Susca, and originally published on theconversation.comConsidering the history of television news a few years ago, iconic anchor Ted Koppel declared that CBS’ 1968 debut of “60 Minutes” forever altered the landscape of broadcast journalism: A news program drew enough advertising to turn a profit. As Koppel told it, “60 Minutes” showed broadcasters that news divisions could make money – which was a huge shift in how management executives thought of news, affecting both the quality and type of coverage broadcast over the publicly owned airwaves.Until then, broadcast news in the U.S. had been a costly requirement media companies had to bear as part of getting permission to use the airwaves. “All of a sudden, making money became part of what we did,” Koppel told the audience of a “Frontline” series called “News War.”In the decades since, news divisions have been held to the same profit-making standards as corporate media’s entertainment divisions. Corporate owners slashed foreign bureaus as coverage remained focused on emotion and celebrity rather than public affairs.In late October 2017, the Federal Communications Commission made it even easier for media conglomerates to focus on money-making. That was when the FCC abolished a World War II-era policy that was intended to force news broadcasters to be connected to – and accountable to – the communities their programming reached. My work as a political economist suggests that local broadcast media content is about to get worse, focusing even more on stories that can turn a profit for corporate headquarters rather than serving local communities. And the big companies that operate these stations are going to withdraw even farther from the communities they cover, threatening a key foundation of American democracy.Connecting with communitiesThe longstanding requirement, known as the “main studio rule,” said television and radio broadcasters had to have local studios, where viewers or listeners could interact with and communicate with the people who were putting their news on the air. This was part of fulfilling the broadcasters’ explicit obligation to use the airwaves to benefit society: As the Radio Act of 1927 put it, they had to operate in the “public interest, convenience and necessity.”That would help keep news decisions about schools, zoning, health, environment, emergencies and local issues connected to the community. It also helped encourage broadcasters to employ people who lived in the areas their signals reached.In the decades since, the media landscape and technology both have changed dramatically. The FCC still assumes that broadcasters are local media because it issues station licenses in specific community areas. Yet the holders of those licenses are usually large conglomerates with centralized news operations sending homogenized programming out across the nation.Advocates for eliminating the main studio rule – including the National Association of Broadcasters – note that most audience communications with media companies are online. They say that makes having a local physical office less important than it may once have been. Among the supporters of this view is FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, who was appointed to the commission by Barack Obama in 2012 and tapped to head it by Donald Trump shortly after his inauguration.Pai also raises another common argument against the main studio rule: its cost. In October he wrote that the policy change will reduce burdens on media companies and let them improve audience service accordingly: “eliminating this rule will enable broadcasters to focus more resources on local programming, newsgathering, community outreach, equipment upgrades, and attracting talent – all of which will better serve their communities.”The two Democratic members of the five-member FCC, Mignon Clyburn and Jessica Rosenworcel, dissented from their Republican colleagues’ decision, objecting to the effects the ruling would have on local news. Clyburn wrote that the FCC’s change “signals that it no longer believes, those awarded a license to use the public airwaves, should have a local presence in their community.” Rosenworcel, for her part, wrote in a separate dissent: “I do not believe it will lead to more jobs. I do believe it will hollow out the unique role broadcasters play in local communities.”History has heard this argument before.Promises of deregulationFocusing on ‘happy news.’ Kakigori Studio/Shutterstock.comAs the lesson of “60 Minutes” spread in the late 1970s and 1980s, news organizations and their corporate parent companies enjoyed massive windfalls, broadcasting content that was cheap to produce: It focused on thin happy banter between anchors rather than substantive hard-hitting reporting. At the same time, media conglomerates including Time Inc., NBC owner General Electric and Comcast began heavily lobbying Congress and regulatory agencies like the FCC to roll back decades of media policies meant to help foster educational and informational needs of citizens in a democracy.They found success when President Bill Clinton signed the sweeping Telecommunications Act of 1996. Then-FCC chairman Reed Hundt declared that with the act, “We are fostering innovation and competition in radio.” He said the new law would increase diversity in both ownership of broadcast stations and the viewpoints they present. And he said it would create a space for more competition in the telecommunications marketplace that would, ultimately, benefit consumers.But nine years later, a report from Washington, D.C.-based watchdog group Common Cause determinedd “the public got more media concentration, less diversity, and higher prices.” Cable and phone rates didn’t drop from competition, but skyrocketed with consolidation. Industry leaders’ promises to add 1.5 million jobs turned into layoffs of more than 500,000 people. And Hundt himself 10 years later trumpeted not the improvements of service to the public, but rather the financial rewards reaped by corporations and their shareholders.So now, more than 20 years after the act’s passage, fewer corporations than before control a larger share of radio, broadcast and cable television in the United States. Many of those corporations have financial stakes in online media, too, meaning their reach and ideologies extend far beyond just television and the AM/FM dial.The FCC’s decision to roll back the main studio rule is yet another in a long line of policymaking and regulatory decisions that will further boost corporate media, not citizens.A pathway into the futureBy eliminating the main studio rule, the FCC has severed one of the last remaining ties between broadcasters and local communities. (Others, including rules about media companies’ consolidation, are on the chopping block.) The body charged with ensuring media companies serve the public interest has opened the door even wider to treating news as a profit-motivated medium operated to benefit shareholders, rather than as a key element of American civic life.Even before the FCC undid the main studio rule, the effects of the Telecommunications Act made local news more homogeneous and less diverse. This is particularly harmful for rural America, where just two-thirds of residents have regular broadband access at home – and only limited data services on their mobile smartphones. That means millions of Americans without regular internet access are relying on broadcast television as their sole form of entertainment and information about their communities.The real question for citizens is simple: Did deregulation work? Is the quality of broadcast news better today than it was 20 years ago? Will it improve if companies’ legal and regulatory requirements are loosened?All Americans know the answer. And so does the FCC.

Saracens fly through to Cup Final after dominant performance vs Clermont

first_imgSunday Apr 27, 2014 Saracens fly through to Cup Final after dominant performance vs Clermont Saracens cruised through to the Heineken Cup Final following a physically dominant performance against Clermont at Twickenham. They reach the final for the first time, where they will hope to back up their 46-6 victory with a win over champions Toulon. Saracens flew out the blocks and put in a mammoth physical effort in the first twenty minutes at HQ. Namibian Jacques Burger and South African Schalk Brits in particular were everywhere, with Burger chopping down runners and Brits adding his usual finesse with ball in hand.Man of the Match Burger made 27 tackles in what was one of the finest tackling displays ever seen. “You talk about putting your body on the line, there’s no one that does it more than him. When you see people hitting like that it makes you want to do it,” said teammate Owen Farrell.“I know if I was playing against him, you’d be looking for where he is all the time because you wouldn’t want him hitting you from the blindside,” he added.By halftime Saracens were 24-6 up, following a Chris Ashton try and a contentious Nigel Owens awarded Penalty Try and yellow card for Clermont flyhalf Brock James. They also scored through Farrell, who eventually got on the end of a nice bit of play down the right hand flank. Ashton picked up an opportunistic try in the second half, taking him to a record tally for this seasons tournament, and his second of the match. With under ten minutes left, he got his hands on the ball again and sparked a well created try for Chris Wyles, as Clermont looked dead and buried.Tim Streather added a try late in the game as Saracens completed a very impressive showing that totally blew the French side off the park. They’ll face the Top 14 leaders in the final, following Toulon’s victory over Munser in the second Semi Final earlier today.Below are quick highlights of the match, featuring the tries that were scoredADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Heineken Cup Knockout Stages Related Articles 368 WEEKS AGO Toulon defend Heineken Cup title with comfortable… 372 WEEKS AGO Toulon aiming to defend title after tense… 375 WEEKS AGO Heineken Cup 2014 Quarter Final Highlights… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

A New Approach to Promoting Ethanol Discussed at Indiana Forum

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter A New Approach to Promoting Ethanol Discussed at Indiana Forum By Gary Truitt – May 11, 2017 SHARE A New Approach to Promoting Ethanol Discussed at Indiana ForumEmily SkorAt the 8th annual Indiana Ethanol Forum which was held Thursday in Indianapolis, a new approach to promoting ethanol fuel was discussed. Keynote speaker for the event was Emily Skor, CEO of Growth Energy, who called for a new industry approach to marketing ethanol blended fuel to consumers, “When we are talking to consumers about why they should be reaching for higher blends of ethanol, let’s tell them what it does for their cars: higher octane, it burns cleaner and cooler, and it will save them some money at the gas pump.”  A 21st century fuel for a 21st century consumer is the kind of approach she advocated.  She said the target needs to be millennials, environmentalists, and Moms.Skor told HAT the industry needs to go beyond our Corn Belt focus and use a message that works in all 22 states that now sell ethanol, “If I am talking to someone outside of agriculture or outside of the Midwest, then I need to talk about what this fuel means to them.”  She added that focusing on how ethanol is good for the farm economy or the number of jobs it creates in rural areas is not something about which consumers in east coast or west coast urban areas care. The message needs to be simple and personal, she concluded.Skor sees E-15 as the path forward for ethanol, yet, in many locations, including much of Indiana, you cannot sell E-15 all year long. Skor says the industry must get this changed either by regulation or legislation, “We have strong support on Congress for this, and a new head of the EPA who is supportive. So one way or the other we need to get this fixed.” Matt Nichols, with the fuel retailor Thornton’s, told the forum they will not put E-15 into a station unless they can sell it all year.Jane Ade Stevens, Executive Director of the Indiana Corn Growers Association, called for a strong political push with Indiana lawmakers. “We cannot tolerate this sitting on the fence about ethanol,” she said, and advocated for a report card that clearly documented who supports ethanol. ISDA Director Ted McKinney said Indiana would be sending a letter of support for ethanol to the EPA as they consider revising regulations.Currently, there are only 18 pumps selling E-15 in Indiana. However, it was announced at the forum that, thanks to the Hoosier Homegrown Fuels program, a grant of $158,000 has been given to the Family Express chain to install 8 more E-15 locations in Indiana.

Organizations covered by the guidelines are insured national banks, federal savings associations, and branches of foreign banks whose average total consolidated assets total $50 billion dollars or more. Institutions with average total consolidated assets totaling less than $50 billion dollars whose parent company controls an institution covered by the guidelines will also be affected.Covered institutions will now be required to control and manage risk-taking activities by following a written risk governance framework under the new guidelines. The guidelines also set forth a set of minimum standards to govern the overseeing of that framework by the institutions’ boards of directors. The finalized guidelines are essentially the same as those proposed by the OCC in January 2014. Changes were made to the final guidelines for the purposes of clarity and ensuring that board members were not given management responsibilities.The watchdog that oversees the money given under the Troubled Asset Relief Program has accused the U.S. Treasury Department of botching its supervision and reporting of TARP spending, and has called for more transparency. In a scalding letter to Treasury Secretary Jack Lew dated September 2, the Special Inspector General for the Troubled Asset Recovery Program, Christy Romero, stated that a SIGTARP audit found evidence that the Treasury Department modified “some of the data reported by the financial institutions” in a report on how TARP funds were spent.
