Investing in the FTSE 100 gives you the potential to make a substantial amount of money. Every year I read stories of some who invest at the right time in a high-growth stock that soars. However, I also read about those who pour life savings into a stock only for it to halve in value. A lot of this stress about potential losses can be avoided by following my prime investing philosophy. I call it an investing secret as you’d be surprised how many people don’t know or follow it!The investing secret is out of the bagFor experienced investors, the term compounding will be a familiar one. But for many new investors, you’ll have never heard about it. The premise is that the longer you leave an investment to benefit from profits that are reinvested, the more likely you are to achieve a higher return than previously. 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…Let’s take an example. You invest £1,000 in a dividend-paying stock. If we assume you receive a dividend yield of 5% per year constantly, then notice what happens over time. After one year your percentage return is 5%. But if you hold it for 10 years, then you benefit from compounding. The dividend you receive you can reinvest into the stock year after year. From a formula point of view, the return would be £1,000 x (1.05)^10. Take your original investment amount and multiply it by 1.05 (5% dividend yield) which in turn is taken to the power of 10 (that’s 10 years of compounding). The result is £1,628.90. Compare this if you’d just invested for the short term. If once you received a dividend, you sold the stock and sat on the sidelines waiting for another opportunity, there’d be no compounding benefit! You’d be getting 50% profit over 10 years at best, instead of the compounded 62.8% shown above.Compounding can also work without dividends. If you invest in a stock that enjoys share price growth of 10% per year, this also acts as compounding profits from your initial investment.Why compounding is so powerfulYes, it can be beneficial to be very active with frequent when buying and selling in the FTSE 100. You may have been able to avoid some of the market crash so far this year if you sold your stocks in early March and bought back at the low levels a couple of months later. But timing the market like this is exceptionally hard and frequent dealing costs can quickly add up. So when looking to make a million and retire early, you need to allow your investment pot to build up over time, and not make short-term (often rash) decisions. Compounding rewards you for being patient and holding stocks for the long term. This is both from the dividends received but also from the share price appreciation over time as well. If you do this over the course of a decade or two, then you can seriously be looking at making larger profits and obtaining the end goal of retiring early. So the way to get on this path is really to start building a pot as soon as possible. Then just allow the compounding impact to begin!

Acer Aspire Switch 10E – hands-on review

first_imgThe addition of Windows 10 software allows you to use the Live Tiles, so everything is at your fingertips. You can check the weather, get news updates and browse your social media feeds. If you want to Skype your mates, you can do it within seconds.If you need to use it as a productivity tool you can dig into Office 365* to use Word or Excel. What I like about it is you don’t feel you have to go looking for updates, which makes it a really immersive piece of tech. The Action Centre gives you all the notifications and connectivity options you’ll need.With its portable size, it could easily work as a secondary device, with a larger screened, heavier-specced piece of hardware back at home.All-in-all, it’s a pukka piece of kit.To find out more on how to upgrade to Windows 10, visit LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS *Microsoft Office sold separately Living day-to-day with Acer’s 2 in 1 notebook This is a Rugby World advertorial.I do a lot of work and planning on the go and after a few weeks living with the Acer Switch 10, which is powered by Windows 10, I’ve grown rather attached.Firstly, if you’re in the market for a budget 2-in-1 Notebook, you’re onto a winner, because you can pick it up for under £250, which is a complete bargain – you can barely buy a decent mobile for that price, let alone a tablet-come-laptop.The textured, almost rugged outer casing makes the device easier to grip, which means you can lay it on your lap without fear of it slipping off your lap on the train. It’s also similar in weight to a MacBook Air, which is no mean engineering feat.I’ve already sung its praises about how versatile it is and it continues to impress me. Every morning I’ll chuck it in a laptop sleeve and barely notice I’m lugging it round.The really long battery life is impressive which means, if you are out and about you don’t have to take cables or chargers which saves on weight. I have to mention the Snap Hinge, enabling you to clip and unclip the keyboard allowing you to use the 10-inch screen as a stand-alone tablet.It’s great to use in tablet form for watching movies on the go and then adding the keyboard for  when I need to write some notes or emails on the train.The speakers aren’t too shabby with headphones plugged in – something I did on my commute, but adding some Bluetooth speakers at home gives it an extra boost.More and more often, I found myself bypassing the keyboard and going straight for the tablet and touch features to delve into Windows 10. The mix of a touchscreen and physical keyboard is a winning combination, in my eyes.last_img read more

Saints and Sinners: The weekend’s talking points

first_imgSouth Africa’s tacticsSouth Africa were well beaten by England at Twickenham and while they clearly have some complex problems to pick their way through, they didn’t help themselves with a baffling lineout strategy. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS I’ll have that: DTN van der Merwe steals Marshall’s pass from O’Halloran. (Photo: Inpho)Sean O’Brien and Luke MarshallIreland were made to battle for their win over Canada, even though the final 52-21 scoreline was convincing enough, and their cause wasn’t help by some sloppy first-half play.Sean O’Brien was one of the culprits as he knocked on with the line at his mercy after Jack O’Donohue had made a strong break from the back of a close-range scrum.Luke Marshall scored Ireland’s second try, to put them 14-0 up after 22 minutes but then gifted one to Canada straight from the restart. Canada had kicked long and Ireland were attempting to run the ball from their own 22 when Marshall’s pass which was intended for Tiernan O’Halloran was instead snaffled by DTW van der Merwe and he strode over the line for a try.Ireland took the opportunity to blood eight new Test players in this match against weaker opponents and so there were bound to be teething problems, but O’Brien and Marshall would both hope to have done better. The SinnersJerome GarcesThe French referee is a Sinner this week as he was surely the only person at Twickenham who did not think Francois Venter’s pass to Warren Whiteley went forward in the build-up to Johan Goosen’s try.Jerome Garces looked at some replays on the big screen but not even the fact that No 8 Whiteley had to reach well in front of himself to take the pass convinced Garces to disallow the try.The officials missed another clear forward pass later in the game, by JP Pietersen inside his own 22. It didn’t lead to a score this time, but if the offence had been spotted England would have had a good position to attack from. The SaintsBen Youngs and CoJoe Launchbury won the Man of the Match award but Ben Youngs made the most eye-catching contribution to England’s 37-21 win over South Africa. The scrum-half set up two tries in the second half which took England from 20-9 to 37-14 ahead. Both scores came from breaks round the side of rucks, with the hapless Pieter-Steph du Toit – who is usually a lock but was playing out of position at flanker – buying a pair of dummies from Youngs.The first time, with 43 minutes on the clock, Youngs raced through a gap, dummied to pass to Mike Brown and when du Toit moved to tackle the full-back, Youngs ran on and passed to George Ford who sprinted up on his right shoulder and scored the try.Youngs repeated the trick 23 minutes later, this time darting round a ruck on the South Africa 22 and dummying to pass to Marland Yarde. Du Toit was left waving his arms in frustration as Owen Farrell appeared to take the scoring pass from Youngs.The scrum-half wouldn’t have had the space in which to operate so effectively around the rucks if it hadn’t been for great work from the England forwards, but Youngs made a telling contribution for his team as they beat South Africa for the first time since 2006 and ended a run of 11 defeats and a draw against the Springboks. Beauden Barrett and Sarah HunterThis duo won the World Rugby Men’s and Women’s Players of the Year respectively, at the World Rugby Awards in London on Sunday.Fly-half Barrett becomes the fifth All Black in a row to receive the prestigious award, while England captain Sarah Hunter beat two other skippers to win her trophy, New Zealand’s Fiao’o Fa’amausili and France’s Gaëlle Mignot. Liam Williams and Gethin JenkinsWales needed to get their show back on the road after last week’s dismal loss to Australia and they managed to, with a 24-20 win over Argentina.One of the stars for the home side was win Liam Williams, who scored a decisive try early in the second half and carried the ball 14 times in all in a lively performance on his return from injury.Dan Biggar must take some credit for Williams’s try as his strong break from the ten-metre line into the 22 created the pressure, but Williams had several men to beat when he received the ball out on the left a phase or two later and he managed to power through the tackles and ground the ball under a pile of bodies.Cheeky: Gethin Jenkins chips the ball over Argentina. (Photo: Huw Evans Agency)Gethin Jenkins provided another golden moment for Wales and set up their second try. The veteran loosehead forget which number was on his jersey and lofted a lovely chip over the Argentine back line and into the 22. Santiago Cordero just put a foot in touch as he fielded the kick and from the ensuing attacking lineout Wales created a scoring chance for scrum-half Gareth Davies. That put them 18-10 ahead and they hung on to win. TAGS: Highlight Tiernan O’HalloranThe Ireland full-back scored two tries as a largely reserve-strength Ireland beat Canada 52-21 at the Aviva Stadium.Tiernan O’Halloran’s first score was really impressive, as he cut a great line to collect an offload from prop Finlay Bealham and change the direction of attack, then ran 50 metres to touch down. The scores had been tied at 14-14 at the time so his try allowed Ireland to take a 21-14 lead into half-time.He scored again with just two minutes of the match to go, this time going over from about three metres out, but he did have to spin around neatly to take the pass from Garry Ringrose, which had gone behind him.O’Halloran also came within a whisker of pulling off a great try-saving tackle on his opposite number after 16 minutes of the second half, but Matt Evans just managed to ground the ball for a fraction of a second as the Connacht man rolled him onto his back over the line.Finishing touch: Tiernan O’Halloran grounds his second try late in the game. (Photo: Inpho)center_img Jonny MayI beg your forgiveness if the fact I am a Gloucester supporter has coloured my judgement here, but I am making Jonny May a Saint this week after his try-scoring comeback for England.The super-fast wing got England on the scoresheet against South Africa after ten minutes when he finished a training-ground move from a lineout. Every one of the seven backs and half-backs was involved either as a passer or a decoy runner and when the ball came to May in space on the left, he finished the move perfectly, diving under the cover tackle of Rudy Paige to touch down in the corner.Roaring back: Jonny May celebrates his try for England. (Photo: Getty Images)May did much more than that in this match. His excellent chase of an Elliot Daly kick forced Ruan Combrinck to drop the ball in his own 22 and from there Mike Brown kicked it to the line and Courtney Lawes dived on it for his first England try on the occasion of his 50th cap.In all May made seven runs with the ball in hand, making 55 metres of ground, he did plenty of other work off the ball and made seven tackles. Not a bad return for a player who had been out with a knee injury since the start of 2016 and had made just one Premiership appearance before joining up with England. Coach Allister Coetzee picked lock Pieter-Steph du Toit out of position on the flank, giving his side an extra lineout option to exploit, but the Boks opted not to challenge for England’s ball there and so allowed the hosts to win all 15 of their lineouts. Former South Africa hooker Schalk Brits, who was working as a Sky Sports pundit at the match, couldn’t see a reason for that tactic. “Your guess is as good as mine,” he said, when he was asked about it mid-match. “I don’t know.” Tevita KuridraniThe Australia centre broke Scotland’s hearts five minutes from time at Murrayfield by scoring they try which enabled the Wallabies to snatch a win after trailing for almost the entire match.Tevita Kuridrani bulldozed to the line and reached out through a despairing tackle from Stuart Hogg to just ground the ball over the whitewash close to the posts. From there Bernard Foley was able to slot the conversion which took Australia to a 23-22 win.Australia coach Michael Cheika said Kuridrani was especially pleased to score the decisive try as he had missed a tackle which led to one of Huw Jones’s two first-half tries.Kuridrani himself said: “I was pretty down when I missed the tackle. It was one on one and I missed it. I really wanted to make up for it and luckily enough I got the try.”It’s there: Tevita Kuridrani reaches out to score the crucial try for Australia. (Photo: Getty Images)Huw JonesTo score two tries on your first Test start takes some doing but Huw Jones showed his class for Scotland against Australia with a double strike in the first half.Jones had won his first cap off the bench on Scotland’s June tour to Japan. He was handed the No 13 jersey for the clash with the Wallabies at Murrayfield and repaid Vern Cotter’s faith by scoring twice. He collected a chip over the defence from Finn Russell for his first try after seven minutes and finished off a period of pressure from Scotland to claim his second try with 26 minutes on the clock.“He has been playing well in the Currie Cup and carried that through,” said Cotter. “There was energy from everybody in the week and he fed off it. He has got the quality.” Will SkeltonAustralia replacement Will Skelton incurred the wrath of coach Michael Cheika when he got himself sin-binned just seven minutes after coming onto the pitch during the match against Scotland. He was penalised for hitting Jonny Gray shoulder first after the referee had already blown for an Australia penalty. When Skelton headed for the cooler his team were 22-16 down with 12 minutes to go, and so really needed all hands on deck.As it was, they managed to score the match-winning try while they were down to 14 men but Cheika still had some harsh words for Skelton after the match.“He has got to put his arms around that guy and he knows that. It was ill-discipline from him. We had our own penalty, it was after the whistle and it wasn’t clever. He knows that.” The wait is over: Bristol celebrate their win v Sale. (Photo: Getty Images)BristolFinally, at the ninth time of asking, Bristol got their first win of the season, beating Sale Sharks 26-11 at Ashton Gate.Tries from debutant Jason Woodward, Rhodri Williams and Jack Tovey, plus eight points from the boot of Billy Searle, were enough to give Bristol that winning feeling and although it was in the Anglo-Welsh Cup rather than the Aviva Premiership, it will still give them a boost as they get ready to return to league action with a trip to The Rec to face Bath on Friday evening.Woodward, 26, has just arrived in Bristol from his native New Zealand where he played for the Hurricanes. Playing at centre, he scored his try after just nine minutes and added to his heroics with a cheeky after-match interview. When asked “how was that for you?” by the Sky Sports reporter, Woodward quipped: “Pretty cold!” Rochelle ClarkIt was a record-breaking weekend for England and Worcester Valkyries prop Rochelle Clark as she won her 115th Test cap, making her the most capped England player of either gender as she overtook Jason Leonard’s 114.To put icing on the cake, Clark scored England’s first try in their match against Ireland and the Red Roses went on to win 12-10 in Dublin.Nora Stapleton scored all Ireland’s points with a try, conversion and penalty while Izzy Noel-Smith scored England’s other try and Kay Mclean kicked the match-winning conversion. England made it 11 Test wins in a row by beating the Springboks, Wales got back on the horse after last weekend’s loss, Scotland were pipped at the post and Ireland beat Canada.

Foto/Janet Kawamoto[Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs] El siguiente sermón fue presentado hoy en la 77a Convención General de la Iglesia Episcopal, que se reúne en Indianápolis, Indiana, hasta el 12 de julio.Oren como lo sientenHomilía para la Eucaristía de la Comunidad en la Convención General de la Iglesia Episcopal (11 de julio de 2012)Por la Rda. Stephanie Spellers(Cantado) Espíritu del Dios vivo cae con frescura sobre mí. Espíritu del Dios vivo cae con frescura sobre mí. Derríteme, moldéame, lléname, utilízame. Espíritu del Dios vivo cae con frescura sobre nosotros.Si ustedes quieren saber lo que creen los anglicanos, vean cómo oran. Bueno, acabamos de rezar: “Danos la gracia, siguiendo las enseñanzas y el ejemplo de tu siervo Benito, para caminar con corazones amorosos y decididos en la escuela del servicio del Señor”. Es una hermosa oración. Por supuesto, espero que lo sintamos.Benito de Nursia apareció en escena en la Italia del siglo sexto, cuando la corrupción había saturado la iglesia. Incluso los monjes estaban haciendo sus propias cosas, indistinguibles de la cultura en general.La fe no cambió a nadie y no le costó nada a usted. Era como el hombre del evangelio de esta mañana, que un buen día decidió, “construir una torre”, a pesar de que no tenía idea de lo que costaría, o el sacrificio que tendría que soportar. En los días de Benito, la gente se decía cristiana, pero no tenía ningún interés en cargar la cruz y transformase en gente de Jesús. ¡Imagínense eso!Pero Benito quería ser cristiano. Quería que Jesús le derritiera, moldeara, llenara y utilizara, y quería estar rodeado de compañeros que le mantuvieran e impulsaran durante ese cambio. Así que fundó una nueva comunidad monástica, una “escuela al servicio del Señor” formada en torno a tres compromisos. Son – por favor me acompañen al mencionar el latín y respondan- stabilitas, obedientia, conversatio morum. Si ustedes oran para seguir los pasos de Benito, tienen que saber esto.Stabilitas: la estabilidad, el permanecer con su comunidad. Obedientia: la obediencia, obededer a la autoridad de la comunidad y de Dios. Y luego estaba el compromiso más distintivo, al cual todo lo demás apuntaba: conversatio morum. Es una frase intraducible que significa comprometerse con esta norma, llevar la cruz, abrazar Al Otro, y confiar en que Dios está utilizando todo esto para convertirles a ustedes, transformarles y, en última instancia, bendecirles.Stabilitas, obedientia y conversatio morum. Estas son las enseñanzas básicas de Benito. Hemos orado por la gracia de seguir su ejemplo. Espero en Dios que lo sintamos.Ya sé que lo sentimos de muchas maneras, porque las marcas se notan en toda mi vida. Yo soy un libro de texto de la Generación Xer, por lo que nunca he estado muy inclinada a la estabilidad y aún menos a la obediencia. Hasta hace 12 años, yo he estado vagando de la iglesia a la “sangha” y al compañerismo. Cuando me enteré de este cuerpo, encontré lo que tanto había deseado, y mucho de lo que no nunca hubiera pedido y ahora no puedo imaginarme vivir sin ello. Una mesa (altar) en la que Jesús vive, no en memorial sino encarnado. Una liturgia que aún vibra con los ritmos del ordo antiguo. Una tradición teológica que tiene sentido para mí en la cabeza, en el corazón y en el intestino. Una vida consagrada como sacerdote, obediente al llamado de la iglesia y de Dios.Me encanta esta iglesia. Es, fácilmente, la más larga relación de compromiso que he mantenido. Mi madre vino hoy conduciendo desde Kentucky, no sólo para oírme, sino para darles las gracias. La Iglesia Episcopal me ha dado stabilitas y obedientia, y sé que mi salvación depende de la conversión que Dios está obrando en mí aquí con ustedes.Pero si mi mamá bautista condujo todo esto hasta aquí, si usted, mi familia de iglesia, se han levantado para la penúltima eucaristía de la Convención, entonces tengo que ser honesta y contarles el resto de la historia. Y lo que he visto es que nos gusta orar por estos compromisos, y nos gusta vivirlos siempre y cuando no nos cambien demasiado.Si alguna vez quieren poner a prueba ese compromiso, Benito les pediría que dieran un vistazo a la hospitalidad. Él estaba obsesionado con la buena acogida de El Otro. En su regla, escribió: “Que todos los huéspedes que llegan sean recibidos como Cristo, porque Él va a decir, ‘Vine como un huésped y me recibieron”. Benito pidió a sus monjes que ofrecieran oraciones y alabanzas cuando alguien llegara a la puerta, especialmente a los pobres y a los deshonrados. Envíen al abad, al hermano hospedero, a toda la comunidad a inclinarse y lavar los pies del huésped.Y recuerden: esto no se refiere, ante todo, a la comodidad del extraño. Esta disciplina se refiere a ustedes: que reciben, que se humillan y se preocupan, que se convierten y son bendecidos por Dios. Si ustedes están verdaderamente arraigados en Cristo, si son obedientes a sus mandamientos, si se han rendido al misterio de la conversatio morum, recibirán Al Otro como a Cristo, y serán cambiados.A lo largo de la presente Convención, hemos orado y proclamado nuestro deseo de dar la bienvenida a las nuevas generaciones y culturas, de buscar y servir a Cristo en todas las personas. ¿Lo decimos en serio? ¿Queremos cambiar lo que implica la hospitalidad? Es confuso decirlo. Nos reímos del estándar de la hospitalidad episcopal: “¡Bienvenido! Este es el Libro de Oración Común. Obedézcalo. Esta es nuestra tradición musical. Domínela. Esta es nuestra herencia inglesa. Adóptela. Este es nuestro sentido del orden. Internicela. ¿Y los dones de su cultura de origen, su cultura de jóvenes, de su cultura de clase inferior? Por favor, déjenlos a la puerta y recójanlos a la salida. No son lo suficientemente episcopales”.No creo que no queramos ser amables o queramos ser displicentes. Creo que nos encanta lo que hemos recibido y lo más natural del mundo es compartirlo con los demás en esa misma forma. Creo que tenemos miedo que al abrirnos a una transformación de dos vías con El Otro podamos borrar las mismas características que en primer lugar pudieran atraerlo.Benito hubiera dicho que no es así. Valoren la stabilitas. Aférrense a lo que es santo y verdadero. Luego, estiren la otra mano para recibir a ese extraño, y a la santidad y la verdad que tienen, para que ustedes puedan recibir la bendición y la conversión que Jesús quiere ofrecerles a través de ellos.El miedo grita, “¡cierren filas!” Solamente la oración nos mantiene lo suficientemente abiertos para decir: “Estos son nuestros elementos esenciales, lo que hemos amado. ¿Cuáles son sus dones, expresiones y sabiduría? ¿Cómo podemos tejerlos y construir una iglesia, proclamar el evangelio, de una manera más plena de lo que ninguno de nosotros pudo imaginarse?” El miedo dice: “Yo podría perderlo todo”. La oración nos permite decir: “Estoy confundido, tengo miedo, pero acepto esta muerte y resurrección, este sacrificio y bendición, esta transformación en la plenitud de Cristo. Y, sí, le abrazo a usted”.Sigan orando con nuestro hermano Benito. Rueguen a Dios que es nuestro creador y áncora, el Dios que nos redime, y el Dios que nos agita y nos convierte. Oren para que Dios nos derrita, nos moldee, nos llene, nos utilice. Y luego, tengan cuidado, porque podría hacerlo. Amén y Aleluya.

The pop-up market will feature everything from locally grown food and drinks to homemade wares and food trucks. Attendees will be able to sip, sample and shop from an assortment of Indiana products, as well as support the farmers and businesses behind them.Bruce Kettler, director of the Indiana State Department of Agriculture, told HAT, “Of course, there’s food, but we have vendors that have other things besides food there. The part that I really think is a lot of fun is to see that these people then get a chance to actually talk to the farmers, the growers, the entrepreneurs that have set up these businesses and begin to talk to these people directly. Those conversations are fun to listen into because it gives people a real perspective of what an entrepreneur is doing, and it gives them a perspective about agriculture that they may not always get.”Kettler adds that Indiana Grown is also celebrating its 4th anniversary this month and he’s very proud of the growth of the program.“Starting from no members to now just under 1,500 members in that short period of time. I think it’s a testament to the team and the people that really wanted to have a program that allows us to identify products that are raised, grown, or processed in the state of Indiana.”To learn more about becoming an Indiana Grown member, visit And don’t forget to show your support for the Monumental Marketplace today from 10-2 on the circle in downtown Indianapolis.

Rec center sees spike in attendance as students prepare for spring break

first_imgReddIt Twitter Welcome TCU Class of 2025 Previous articleHoroscope: February 7, 2018Next articleMen’s basketball edged by No. 10 Kansas, 71-64 Dylan Guest RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR printWith New Year’s resolutions in full swing and spring break being less than five weeks away, the TCU Campus Recreation is staying busy.Jay Iorizzo, director of campus recreation, said there’s been an increase in visitors this year similar to last year.The rec center had an average of about 2,800 visitors per day in January 2017 but dropped to 2,100 in February of the same year, and to 1,700 in March.There has been a spike in mid-afternoon visitors from Jan. 16 – Feb. 2 this semester more than  11,000 people have swiped into the recreational center between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. The next highest time slot for the same period was noon to 3 p.m., where more than 8,000 people swiped in, Iorizzo said.With the increase in visitors, people have had to wait for vacant machines and available equipment in the weight room. Some have had to alter their workout or go at new times in order to complete their goals.Zach Pusic, a sophomore business major, said he may start to go at night to complete his workouts instead of dealing with the afternoon crowds.“I started working out in the weight room last November in the afternoon after my classes, and it was never too crowded,” Pusic said. “When I came back from winter break, I noticed how packed it became at that time and most things I wanted to use were already taken.”Dylan Larkin, a senior business major, has heard about how crowded the rec center has gotten and prefers to work out while most other students are in class.“I’ve always been in the routine of working out first thing in the morning; however, the gym not being crowded in the morning is definitely a factor of why I continue to go at that time,” Larkin said. “I don’t like going to the gym when it’s crowded and having to wait around if other people are using the same equipment I want to use.”Gym’s and recreational centers tend to become more crowded every year in January. More than 12 percent of gym memberships are sold in January whereas other months have an average of 8.3 percent according to a study by the International Health, Racquet, and Sportsclub Association (IHRSA).The full rec center hours can be found here.

Attacks on media offices

Accompanied by police, city officials and municipal employees cut off RTV M programming, forced staff to leave, and tossed equipment and recorded material into the street. The officials than sealed the office shut, legally preventing entry.The day before, Mitrovica Mayor Avni Kastrati had signed a decree requiringmedia workers to evacuate the premises. RTV M and the city have been legally disputing rights to the property since 1999. A court should have been allowed to make a decision, but the city government showed its unwillingess to wait for a legal determination. Three days before the raid, RTV M was advised that its staff should leave the property.RTV M founder and director Nexhmedin Spahiu criticized the city action as “arbitrary.” He said that authorities had waited until he was out of the country, in Cyprus, to carry out the operation. Spahiu said the mayor had ordered the raid in order to take possession of documents that provide evidence of corruption.“It is unacceptable that a city government order what amounts to vandalism of amedia organization, while a lawsuit is under way to settle the legal issue of rights to the property” Reporters Without Borders said. “We demand that RTV M be compensated for the considerable damage it suffered and that the city order be quashed. RTV M must be able to freely operate in its office pending the outcome of the court case.”Meanwhile, 40 kms north of Mitrovica, shots were fired at the office of RadioKolasin in the city of Zubin Potok. The attack took place on 19 July, two days after the raid on RTV M. A bank and the home of a police officer were targeted by gunfire at the same time.No one was hurt in any of the incidents and the reasons for the attacks remainunknown. But they demonstrate the level of tension in which media workers areoperating. “We are shocked by the attack on Radio Kolasin,” Reporters Without Borderssaid. “Initial investigation indicates that this was a planned assault. We demand that authorities take all measures to guarantee the safety of journalists and their workplaces.”Kosovo ranked 87 of 187 on the Reporters Without Borders press freedom indexfor 2012. last_img read more

Financial weekly closed for three months for reporting on a public bank

first_img ChinaAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders today condemned a three-month ban slapped on financial weekly China Business Post, accused of having broken the law in an article on the Agricultural Bank of China.Elsewhere, the Propaganda Department is still keeping tight control over news linked to the toxic milk scandal. An investigative journalist has been gagged from reporting on the issue since July to avoid embarrassment during the Olympic Games.”While there is growing concern about the international banking crisis and the toxic milk scandal, it is appalling for local and national officials to try to censor media who are only trying to carry out their job of informing the public.””We call for the lifting of the temporary ban on the China Business Post and for the end to censorship of the milk scandal. Without these steps, the credibility of government promises of transparency will again be tainted”, the worldwide press freedom organisation said.The China Business Post, which sells 400,000 copies weekly, was suspended for three months on 8 September by the press and publications bureau of Inner Mongolia in northern china, where it is licensed.Following negotiations, the newspaper was able to appear as usual on 11 September, but the 18 September issue was banned. This sanction followed complaints from leading officials in Hunan, southern China and from the Agricultural bank of China. The weekly in July accused the Changde, Hunan office of the public bank of poor management of assets.According to the authorities, the Beijing-based weekly violated a regulation that bans the media from publishing an investigation into an event in a province other than that in which it is licensed. The authorities also considered that the China Business Post should have questioned the Agricultural Bank of China before carrying the article. Officials in Inner Mongolia justified their decision by citing other investigations by the financial paper which reportedly violated the same rules.Press magnate, Bruno Wu, owner of the title through the Sun Media group, told the Financial Times, that there had been an “abuse of administrative power”. He told the paper’s staff on 24 September that he had decided to suspend publication of the weekly indefinitely to protest against the decision. A source at the paper also told Reporters Without Borders that an appeal had been lodged with the competent authorities.At the same time, the Propaganda Department has strengthened its control over the information available in the media and online about the contaminated milk which has caused at least four deaths and made thousands of other Chinese children ill.Several Chinese journalists have said that it is becoming more and more obvious that the authorities in July prevented an investigation into the toxic milk coming out so as not to tarnish China’s image before the Olympics.He Feng, a journalist on the weekly Nanfang Zhoumo, was censored in July when he had obtained worrying information about the public health effects of the milk produced by the Sanlu company. Again, on 13 September, an article by He Feng on the responsibilities of milk companies was pulled by the weekly’s management.A Propaganda Department circular of 12 September warned that it was in the interests of media and websites to limit publication of articles or commentary on the milk products scandal.Finally, the Chinese Human Rights Defenders revealed that economist, Qi Yanchen, who had already been imprisoned from 1999 to 2003, had been summoned by police after he criticised the authorities’ management of the scandal in an interview with Radio Free Asia.
