Report: For-profit schools improve chances for poor

first_img KCS-content EDUCATION reforms by the coalition government must allow profit making schools, an influential thinktank said today.Reforms in Sweden – which the UK’s plans are loosely based upon – only worked due to the contribution of for-profit schools, according to the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA).“This is especially the case in providing access to good schools for those from low socioeconomic backgrounds,” said the IEA’s Mark Littlewood.A statistical analysis of the Swedish system found that the profit incentive boosted the number of new schools, driving up standards.In Sweden 13 per cent of schools make a profit. Yet the UK government has received only 62 applications for independent new “free schools.”“It is hardly surprising that we have seen such a low uptake when the profit motive has been excluded,” said Littlewood. whatsapp Report: For-profit schools improve chances for poor Show Comments ▼ Sharecenter_img Tuesday 14 December 2010 9:03 pm by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Heraldmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’Definition whatsapp More From Our Partners Native American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.org‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comPuffer fish snaps a selfie with lucky divernypost.comBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.com Tags: NULLlast_img read more

NIGC warns tribes of IGRA rules on sports betting deals

first_img Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Sports betting Tribal gaming Horse racing AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Tags: Mobile Online Gambling Race Track and Racino Email Address The National Indian Gaming Commission (NIGC) has released a new advisory bulletin that warns Native American tribes of key considerations and potential restrictions they face under the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA) when rolling out sports betting. 30th January 2020 | By contenteditor The National Indian Gaming Commission (NIGC) has released a new advisory bulletin that warns Native American tribes of key considerations and potential restrictions they face under the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA) when rolling out sports betting.Speaking at a meeting of the New Mexico Association of Indian Gaming Commissions, NIGC chair E. Sequoyah Simermeyer explained that the bulletin was designed to clarify the legality of sportsbooks on tribal lands, following numerous queries from operators.Since the repeal of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) in May 2018, Simermeyer noted, tribes in Mississippi, New Mexico and New York had joined a Nevada-based tribal operator in rolling out wagering.This is permitted, as sports betting is considered a form of Class III gaming, which can be rolled out by tribes that have a state compact approved by the US Department of the Interior. The bulletin advises tribes to check whether Class III gaming is covered by their existing compacts, or if it should be amended to include sports betting.There are currently four options or models for tribes to consider when preparing to launch wagering, it continued. These range from complete control – when tribes manage all aspects of a sportsbook – to a sportsbook wholly owned and operated by a third party, but hosted on tribal lands.In between, there is the option of having a sportsbook operated by a tribe, but using third-party data, or a tribal-owned sportsbook managed by a third party.Read the full story on iGB North America.

Forget a Cash ISA! Why I think oil share prices are back

first_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Forget a Cash ISA! Why I think oil share prices are back Oil share prices are fickle beasts. Oil exploration and production (E&P) companies heavily exposed to the price of black gold can experience high share price volatility. In addition, the recent plunging oil price is thought to make life very hard for any organisation relying on oil for its main source of revenue.Likewise, the coronavirus shutdown makes life difficult for many FTSE-listed firms. The plummeting demand for products and services encourages investors to sell shares. Many flock to ‘safer’ assets such as cash. With bond yields now so low, a Cash ISA is an attractive alternative.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…However, Cash ISA rates are not much higher than the current UK rate of inflation of 1.2%. So, while cash shouldn’t lose you money, it won’t make you much either. Unlike, potentially, oil share prices.Oil share pricesBy oil share prices, I’m referring to the shares of companies based in the oil industry. Companies like integrated oil major, Royal Dutch Shell (LSE: RDSB), and smaller E&P companies, Premier Oil (LSE: PMO) and Tullow Oil (LSE: TLW).The share prices of all three companies plummeted with the rest of the FTSE near the end of March. However, by the time the Brent Crude oil price reached its bottom on 21 April, shares in all three companies were up between 40% and 115%.The smaller E&P companies experienced an immediate small dip in price, likely as a result of the oil price drop. Shell’s share price, in contrast, kept climbing. And the overall trend for all three companies since this date is a very positive one.Demand shock beginning to liftThis shows that the demand shock created by the government’s coronavirus-induced shutdown affected share prices of oil companies far more than the declining oil price.The good news is that the lockdown is beginning to lift globally, which should increase demand once again. Great news for oil firms and their shareholders.Royal Dutch Shell is currently trading at a price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) of around 15. This is below the oil and gas industry average of 17, meaning its shares are still relatively cheap.In addition, despite its dividend cut, Shell offers an estimated forward dividend yield of around 3.7%. This is far in excess of a good Cash ISA rate, around 1.5%. And if demand does increase, as I think likely, then there is also the prospect of capital gains to look forward to.Premier Oil and Tullow Oil are trading at P/Es of 2.9 and 2.5, respectively. Premier isn’t paying a dividend currently, but Tullow’s is around 6%. Again, a rate far in excess of even the best Cash ISA. However, with reward comes risk – both these smaller companies are heavily debt-laden.Shell, in contrast, is integrated and it can use cheaper oil prices to improve margins at its refineries. It can also use its trading arm to create value. This makes it a far better investment, in my view, so it’s unsurprising its share price has been climbing.So, for now, I’m forgetting my Cash ISA. There are higher returns to be made on the oil share prices, and on the majors in particular. 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.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Peter Stephens | Tuesday, 13th October, 2020 | More on: TSCO UU Falling interest rates mean that making a passive income from products such as NS&I Premium Bonds and Income Bonds has become more difficult in 2020. A challenging economic outlook means that this situation may persist over the medium term, as policymakers seek to stimulate the economy through a loose monetary policy.As such, buying UK shares with attractive dividend yields could be a sound move. They may offer significantly greater income returns over the coming years, with the potential for capital growth.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…Here are two such FTSE 100 companies that could be worth buying today within a diverse portfolio of UK shares.A reliable passive incomeUtility companies such as United Utilities (LSE: UU) have long been popular among investors who are seeking to make a passive income. The company’s business model is relatively resilient and is unlikely to be impacted to the same extent as many of its index peers by a tough economic outlook.The stock has a dividend yield of 4.7% at the present time. That’s significantly higher than the returns available on products such as Premium Bonds or Income Bonds. It is also relatively attractive compared to the income returns on other FTSE 100 shares.United Utilities will review its dividend policy under a new set of regulatory conditions. This could impact on its level and growth rate. However, the company’s track record of offering a stable, growing passive income could make it a popular choice among investors at a time when many companies face uncertain operating conditions. As such, it could be worth buying to produce a robust income over the long run.Improving financial prospectsTesco (LSE: TSCO) has rapidly become an attractive means of generating a passive income. The company has raised dividends at a fast pace over the last few years. For example, it only resumed dividend payouts in 2018. They have then trebled over the next two years. It now offers a forward yield of 4.2%.The company’s recent updates show that it is adapting successfully to a changing operating environment. It has increased its online presence. Meanwhile, investment made in new technology seems to be reducing its costs. This could have a positive impact on its margins at a time when investing in pricing remains a necessity for mid-tier supermarkets due to fierce competition within the sector.Tesco offers capital growth potential as well as a worthwhile passive income. The company is forecast to deliver a 30% rise in earnings next year. This puts it on a price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of just 0.5. This suggests that it could be undervalued at the present time. As such, it may prove to be a profitable long-term investment that offers a potent mix of capital returns and income in the coming years. See all posts by Peter Stephenslast_img read more

The Rolls-Royce share price has crashed nearly 60% today: Here’s what I’d do about it

Some expect this will not be until 2024, although the company is more optimistic. It will be a long road back for Rolls-Royce and its share price, and there has to be concern about getting there at all. This stock does not look like a bargain to me, it’s just too risky, and I won’t buy shares in Rolls-Royce today. Gross Profit3,2663,0482,4221,198942 James J.

Today’s share price crash is due to over 6bn new shares hitting the market.

But, why did all those shares hit the market today and why are they trading 93% below their December 2013 all-time high of 1,160p?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…Rolls-Royce share price slumpThe first wave of the coronavirus caused air travel to all but disappear. Indeed, flights are now resuming, but passenger numbers, particularly on long-haul flights, are well below average. Most of the engines Rolls-Royce makes are fitted to the wide-body jets that fly the long haul routes.Rolls-Royce typically makes a loss on the initial sale of the engines but earns money as the engines spend time in the air and from servicing them. When planes powered by the company’s engines don’t fly, then very little cash is collected. The COVID-19 crisis has led to a cash crunch at Rolls-Royce. To survive until air travel returns to something approaching normal, the company wants to raise £2bn of additional equity, which is why those new shares hit the market today. Also, £2bn of new debt is being raised with up to £2bn more depending on certain conditions being met. There is also a potential £2bn to be raised from selling assets.There was not much Rolls-Royce could do about the pandemic. This degree of fundraising would not have been necessary, had it not happened. However, the company’s balance sheet was already in poor shape. Before the coronavirus hit, Rolls-Royce reported negative shareholders equity of £3.4bn and had liabilities totalling £32.2bn. And also, while the slump in air travel did cause an unexpected hit to the company’s revenues, its performance has been deteriorating long before anyone had heard of COVID-19. It’s no wonder the Rolls-Royce share price has been in a tailspin for some time.Engine troubleRevenue did climb from £13.7bn to £16.6bn from 2015 to 2019. However, gross profit fell over the same period, and Rolls-Royce reported operating losses in 2018 and 2019. Net income has been negative in three out of the last five financial years.  Net Income83(4,032)3,382(2,401)(1,315) Looking for a stock in a company that does not have to make a risky turnaround to perform well?

Marielle Franco, Presente!

first_imgMarielle FrancoBrazilian political activist Marielle Franco, 38, died in downtown Rio de Janeiro on March 14 in what officials have deemed a political assassination. She had just left an evening event, “Young Black Women Who Are Changing Power Structures.” She was killed, along with her driver, Anderson Gomes, by assailants who shot with military precision through her car’s darkened windows. The ammunition used has been traced to batches sold to the federal police. (jungewelt.de, March 16)Franco, a Rio city councilwoman, was a fierce critic of the military occupation of the city ordered by President Michel Temer. She had just been appointed to lead a commission investigating its possible abuses. For years, she had led campaigns against police violence targeting Rio’s poor Black residents. Not long before her assassination, she went to the Acari favela, a poor neighborhood, to denounce recent murders there by the notorious 41st Battalion of police, which has killed as many as 430 people in the last five years. (Vermelho.org.br, March  17)A woman of African descent, she was born in one of the largest favelas, the Maré complex. She was also a lesbian, a mother and a member of the LGBTQ community and the left Party of Socialism and Liberty (PSOL).
