Simon Cowell in advanced talks with ITV over lock-in

first_img ITV is in advanced negotiations with Simon Cowell to tie in the X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent judge for a further three years. Last week, Cowell suggested to reporters that he might quit the UK broadcaster to focus on his US interests. But an ITV source told City A.M. Cowell had been in negotiations with the broadcaster for several weeks and that the intention was that he would continue with both shows for a further three years. It is estimated Cowell will receive £6m annually although negotiations are ongoing. “He has worked for ITV for number of years and is very loyal to ITV. He has publicly said he is very grateful to ITV for giving him his big break. Obviously he has commitments in the US but he’s also driven by what the audience want and will continue to make these shows as long as the audience still wants to watch them,” said the ITV source.Judging by Saturday’s viewing figures Cowell’s commitment to the shows looks unlikely to diminish. X Factor drew in an average audience of 10.8m viewers on Saturday night – 45 per cent of those watching television nationally at the time – and peaked at 12.3m, making the fourth episode of this year’s X Factor the most successful of all and beating last years viewing figures by 800,000.

When Publicis bought the stake five years ago, the whole company was valued at around €70m-€80m, but analysts believe the figure could be higher now given that Freud has bucked the market trend with revenues continuing to rise despite the downturn. Its revenues jumped 23 per cent to £33m last year, while pre-tax profits rose 28 per cent to £6.7m.

2 of my top share picks for March and beyond

first_img The high-calibre small-cap stock flying under the City’s radar Adventurous investors like you won’t want to miss out on what could be a truly astonishing opportunity…You see, over the past three years, this AIM-listed company has been quietly powering ahead… rewarding its shareholders with generous share price growth thanks to a carefully orchestrated ‘buy and build’ strategy.And with a first-class management team at the helm, a proven, well-executed business model, plus market-leading positions in high-margin, niche products… our analysts believe there’s still plenty more potential growth in the pipeline.Here’s your chance to discover exactly what has got our Motley Fool UK investment team all hot-under-the-collar about this tiny £350+ million enterprise… inside a specially prepared free investment report.But here’s the really exciting part… right now, we believe many UK investors have quite simply never heard of this company before! Image source: Getty Images. Many value stocks previously damaged by the pandemic have burst into life. And I’ve been buying some of them. Here are two of my top share picks for March and beyond.There could be pent-up demand aheadFTSE AIM company Marshall Motor Holdings (LSE: MMH) delivered its full-year report today. The UK-focused vehicle dealer’s business is one of those affected by the lockdowns. And the figures for 2020 show reduced revenue and earnings. Although the modest double-digit percentage declines could have been worse.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…The vehicle sales sector has endured tough times. The company reckons 2020 marked the “fourth consecutive year” of declines in the UK new-vehicle market. However, “unforeseen” tailwinds and government support measures helped Marshall Motor deliver a reasonable trading outcome during the year. For example, sales continued as the firm adapted by using tactics such as click-and-collect retailing for new and used cars. Looking ahead, the company expects pent-up demand to boost sales when showrooms reopen. The government’s current roadmap date for that is 12 April. My guess is a backlog of customers could use some of the cash they’ve saved during the pandemic to buy new and used vehicles. And Marshall’s could see decent trading ahead. However, I could be wrong about that possibility.Meanwhile, the share price has already recovered to its pre-pandemic level. And City analysts don’t expect fireworks ahead with the rate of earnings growth. Nevertheless, the company should restore dividends in 2021. And with the share price near 152p, the forward-looking yield is near 4%. And the anticipated earnings multiple is just over eight. I think the valuation is undemanding. And I’m tempted to buy a few shares to hold for the long term. However, the vehicle sales industry is cyclical and it’s possible a long-term investment may not provide the returns I’m hoping for. A quality operatorThe FTSE 250‘s Ultra Electronics (LSE: ULE) delivered a robust full-year report today despite the pandemic. The business serves the defence, security, critical detection and control markets. Within those sectors, Ultra Electronics engineers solutions for mission-critical and intelligent systems. In 2020, the order book increased by 4% and revenue came in just over 4% higher than in 2019. The company managed to use that turnover to boost underlying earnings per share by just over 9%.What appeals to me is the strength of trading through a difficult year. And the directors rewarded shareholders with a 5% increase in the total dividend. I think that move underlines their confidence in the outlook. With the order book at its highest-ever level, the company thinks it’s “well-positioned in key growth areas”. However, City analysts are only predicting a low single-digit increase in earnings this year. There isn’t much meat in that forecast and it would be easy to miss. If earnings do slip, we could see a decline in the share price ahead. And the company’s patchy record of earnings over the past few years is of some concern to me.Nevertheless, I’m tempted to pick up a few shares to hold for the long-term potential. At 2,080p, the stock has a forward-looking earnings multiple of just under 16 for 2021 and the anticipated dividend yield is a little over 2.8%. That’s not a bargain-basement valuation, but the business scores well against various quality indicators, which encourages me.

In this way it was possible to propose a galzed facade to the south (views) and large windows in two levels to the north (light).  The windows are designed to avoid the entrance of direct sunlight during summer but taking the most advantage of the natural light during winter.Save this picture!Section A-A’Two pavilions are proposed according to the  programatic layout of the spaces. The east pavilion contains the bedrooms, family room and the bathrooms. Bedrooms will take advantage of the double height of the windows to the north, using those as attics and viewpoints of the snowy summits.

Editor of daily paper gets jail sentence for contempt of court

first_img to go further RSF_en May 24, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Editor of daily paper gets jail sentence for contempt of court RSF calls for the release of Bangladeshi journalist Rozina Islam, unfairly accused of espionage News News Receive email alerts February 26, 2021 Find out more News Organisation Follow the news on Bangladeshcenter_img News BangladeshAsia – Pacific Help by sharing this information Bangladeshi writer and blogger dies in detention BangladeshAsia – Pacific On 3 August, the supreme court delayed its decision on the appeal of the publisher and editor in chief of the newspaper Dainik Manabzamin, who were respectively sentenced to a fine and a one month prison sentence forcontempt of court.________________________________________________________Reporters Without Borders protested today against a one-month jail sentence imposed on Matiur Rahman Chowdhury, chief editor of the daily paper Dainik Manabzamin, for contempt of court.”Sentencing a journalist to jail on the outdated and repressive charge of contempt of court sets a dangerous precedent for press freedom in Bangladesh,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard in a letter to Bangladesh’s justice, law and parliamentary affairs minister, Moudud Ahmed.”To avoid more sentences like this, we urge that the offence be abolished and the law amended to drop prison terms for media offences.” Ménard noted that the UN Special Rapporteur for Freedom of Expression has described sending someone to prison for expressing an opinion as being “out of proportion to the offence.”Chowdhury was found guilty of contempt by the High Court on 20 May and as well as the jail sentence was fined 2,000 takas (40 euros). His wife Mahbuba Chowdhury, the paper’s publisher, was fined 2,000 takas too. Former president Hussain Mohammad Ershad was jailed for six months, also for contempt of court. The three defendants have appealed against the verdicts, so the sentences have not yet been applied.The court’s two judges said Chowdhury had committed the contempt by publishing a secret conversation between Ershad and Justice Mohammad Latifur Rahman, in which Ershad had tried to get a favourable verdict in a case involving himself. The court criticised the sensational media coverage of a scandal involving a senior judge (Latifur Rahman), who resigned after the conversation appeared in Dainik Manabzamin and three other papers.It was the first time since the return of democracy in 1990 that a newspaper editor had received a prison sentence for a press offence. The editors of 15 of Bangladesh’s main daily newspapers put out a statement on 22 May supporting the independence of the press and the courts and declaring their solidarity with Chowdhury.

Opening Day (Second Attempt) For Pasadena American Little League

first_img What’s a Little League baseball season without an official Opening Day, complete with pomp and circumstance and some special ceremonies that will make for scrapbook material for kids and parents alike?Pasadena American Little League tried for all that back on Feb. 22, but the weather didn’t cooperate, raining out the annual season-opening festivities – although the skies did clear enough for some games to be played later that day.But on Saturday morning, March 7, with the season already a few weeks into its schedule of games, the PALL will take another swing at Opening Day ceremonies – though showers were again in the early-morning forecast, beginning around 4 a.m. and ending around 8 a.m.“The (league) president is going to let us know when he checks the field at 6 a.m. on Saturday,’’ PALL vice president James Yin told Pasadena Now on Friday. “The forecast says rain. We are on unless the rain prevents us.”The official forecast for 9 a.m. – when the ceremonies are set to begin — is “cloudy.”If that’s the case, and if the fields at Hamilton Park are not too wet, all players from all the league’s various levels – almost 500 players from 35 teams – will run the bases together to kick of the Opening Day festivities.Then, according to Kevin Lewis, PALL’s president, Kalie Welch from the “Rockstars Of Tomorrow” music academy will sing the national anthem, and the John Muir Alumni Drum Corp “will bang us into the season with some sweet beats and we will officially throw out the first pitch.’’In all, the ceremony is expected to last about one hour, and the PALL Challenger baseball team, made up of special-needs kids, will then play a game.This year, Yin said, there are 477 players on 35 teams across six divisions, including three Junior teams, six Majors teams, six Minors-AAA teams, seven Minors-AA teams, 12 T-ball teams (for the really young kids) and one Challenger teams.Each team has a manager, and assistant manager and a team parent.But it’s not just the players who makes Little League such a big deal in Pasadena.There are also, according to Yin, hundreds of parent volunteers pulling snack-bar duty, setting up and maintaining the league’s fields at Hamilton and Victory parks, and dealing with issues ranging from equipment, uniforms, scheduling, umpiring and special event.“It definitely takes a village to get this thing off the ground,’’ Yin said. “It doesn’t just happen. Everybody gets together and MAKES it happen.’’The regular season runs through May, and then around June 1, four All-Star teams are chosen in the Futures division (9 years old or younger) as well as in the 8-10s, 9-11s and 10-12s.“Last year, our 8-10s won the District 17 Title and our Futures were runner-up for District 17 Title,’’ Yin said.But beyond the wins and losses and standings, baseball is a uniter, Yin said.“It’s a great sense of community,’’ said Yin, whose 9-year-old son has been playing in the league since his T-ball days at age 4.“We have the 500 players, or whatnot, but everybody either lives here or they go to school in Pasadena. It’s kinda nice – it’s your neighbors, you get to meet all these families.“Baseball takes a long time, the parents are in the stands hanging out, the volunteer coaches are there, working together trying to get the kids developed. And the kids get to hang out and have fun. And when you walk around town, you see other players and other families. It’s close-knit.’’PALL was founded in 1954 as part of Little League International, a worldwide youth baseball organization. It’s one of three leagues in Pasadena, also including Pasadena Southwest and West Pasadena. Where a player lives or goes to school determines their particular league.
