While the FTSE 100 is the main UK stock market index, I feel investors shouldn’t ignore the FTSE 250. This index, which contains the 250 largest London Stock Exchange-listed companies outside the FTSE 100, is home to some great companies. Today, I’m going to highlight two FTSE 250 dividend stocks I like the look of right now. Both have strong growth prospects and the potential to provide investors with a growing stream of dividends.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…FTSE 250 online shopping playOne of my favourite stocks in the FTSE 250 is Tritax Big Box (LSE: BBOX). It’s a real estate investment company that owns a portfolio of modern, sophisticated storage warehouses that are let out to retailers. Its tenants include some of the biggest names in retail such as Amazon, Tesco, and TK Maxx.The reason I’m bullish here is that the company looks very well placed to benefit from the online shopping boom. Online retailers such as Amazon need warehouses to store their goods. Tritax, with its best-in-class portfolio of strategically-located, modern warehouses offers a solution. With online shopping sales as a proportion of total UK retail sales set to increase from 27.5% this year to 32.1% by 2024, Tritax will have tailwinds behind it in the years ahead.Tritax has a lot of dividend appeal. For the full year, analysts expect a payout of 6.3p per share. That equates to a prospective yield of 3.9% at the current share price. Management recently said that it will continue to monitor the dividend position for FY2020 with the aim of progressively increasing the dividend when it has better visibility.BBOX shares currently trade on a forward-looking P/E ratio of about 23. I think that’s a reasonable valuation for this FTSE 250 e-commerce stock. I’d buy today.Technology star Another FTSE 250 dividend stock I’d buy today is Softcat (LSE: SCT). It’s a leading IT company that helps companies with their technology infrastructure. Its services, which include solutions related to cloud adoption, cybersecurity, networking, data analytics, and remote work, are in high demand right now.Softcat’s financial performance has been solid this year. Just recently, the group advised that for the first quarter ended 31 October, it delivered year-on-year growth in revenue, gross profit, and operating profit. Cash generation has remained in line with normal trends. It added that it had positive momentum heading into the second quarter.The dividend yield here isn’t huge. Last year’s payout equates to a yield of about 2%. However, recent dividend growth has been very impressive. While other FTSE 100 companies have slashed their payouts this year, Softcat has increased its distribution. It also paid a special dividend. Meanwhile, over the last three years, Softcat has lifted its payout by 84%. If the company continues to hike its payout going forward, investors could be looking at a very healthy payout in the future.Softcat shares currently trade on a forward-looking P/E ratio of about 30. So, the stock isn’t cheap. I’m not put off by that valuation though. Given the FTSE 250 company’s strong track record and future growth prospects, I think it deserves a premium valuation.last_img read more

Michael Wallace in a letter encouraging the New Zealand dioceses to promote Ramadan hospitality at their church facilities.The Tikanga Pākeha Ecumenical Group is asking Anglicans to remember that our observant Muslim neighbors in Aotearoa New Zealand will be fasting during daylight hours for the month of Ramadan, which this year runs from next week April 13 – May 12.During Ramadan, Muslims break their daily fast at sunset each night with a large meal called an Iftar, which tradition encourages them to share within their faith community and with others. In many countries where Christians and Muslims live alongside one another in sizable numbers – for example in India and Singapore – Christians will often host their Muslim neighbors for Iftar meals as a gesture of friendship and solidarity.Read the entire article here.

Another journalist killed, sixth since start of year

first_img News Reporters Without Borders is dismayed to learn that Radio Shabelle journalist Ahmed Ado Anshur was gunned down on his way home today in Mogadishu, one of the world’s 10 most dangerous places for the media. He was crossing Suq Bocle market in the district of Dharkenley when he was shot several times in the head and the chest by at least two unidentified gunmen, dying on the spot.“Anshur is the sixth journalist to be slain since the start of the year in Somalia, where working as reporter is synonymous with deadly danger,” Reporters Without Borders said. “All of the previous murders are still unpunished, so we again urge the police and judicial authorities to carry out proper investigations and to deploy all necessary resources to protect journalists.”“Failure to act in a country that is prey to widespread violence means giving a carte blanche to the enemies of media freedom. We offer our condolences to Anshur’s family and friends, and to his colleagues at Radio Shabelle, who have been paying a high price for their professionalism and independence for years.”Aged around 20, Anshur hosted a popular programme called Qubanaha Wararka and had a reputation for being outspoken when conducting interviews on the political situation. He had received death threats after doing reports on government corruption together with Hassan Osman Abdi, a Radio Shabelle journalist who was gunned down in January.Anshur’s murder comes just three weeks after Radio Daljir journalist Farhan James Abdulle was gunned down in similar circumstances on the outskirts of the north-central city of Galkayo on 2 May.Six other Radio Shabelle journalists have been murdered in the past five years. They are:- Mahad Salad Adan, on 5 April 2012 in Beledweyn, the capital of the central region of Hiran.- Hassan Osman Abdi, on 28 January 2012 in Mogadishu.- Mukhtar Mohamed Hirabe, on 7 June 2009 in Mogadishu.- Abdirisak Warsameh Mohamed, on 22 May 2009 in Mogadishu.- Hassan Mayow Hassan, on 1 January 2009 in Afgoye, 30 km south of Mogadishu.- Bashir Nur Gedi, on 19 October 2007 in Mogadishu.Somalia is ranked 164th out of 179 countries in the latest Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Done with Mars, Mini MarCOs Have Gone Silent

Required fields are marked * 3 recommendedShareShareTweetSharePin it Engineer Joel Steinkraus uses sunlight to test the solar arrays on one of the Mars Cube One (MarCO) spacecraft at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The MarCOs will be the first CubeSats — a kind of modular, mini-satellite — flown into deep space. They’re designed to fly along behind NASA’s InSight lander on its cruise to Mars. If they make the journey to Mars, they will test a relay of data about InSight’s entry, descent and landing back to Earth. Though InSight’s mission will not depend on the success of the MarCOs, they will be a test of how CubeSats can be used in deep space. The MarCO and InSight projects are managed for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, Washington, by JPL, a division of the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena. Credit: NASA/JPL-CaltechScientists working on the Mars Cube One (MarCO) mission at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena have not heard from the pair of briefcase-sized spacecraft for over a month now, raising concerns the twins may have reached their limit and run out of power after a successful Mars fly-by.When InSight landed on the red planet in November, MarCO – composed of CubeSats nicknamed EVE and WALL-E after Pixar film characters – relayed the lander’s signals to mission control, beaming back data at each stage of the descent to the Martian surface.WALL-E sent back stunning images of Mars as well, while EVE performed some simple radio science – all these with experimental technology at the paltry sum of $18.5 million; a fraction of what most space missions do.Now estimated to be millions of miles past Mars, WALL-E was last heard from on Dec. 29; EVE, on Jan. 4.The mission team at JPL has several theories for why the spacecraft have been silent.WALL-E has a leaky thruster, and attitude-control issues could be causing them to wobble and lose the ability to send and receive commands. The brightness sensors on the CubeSats, which allow them to stay pointed at the Sun and recharge their batteries, could be another factor. The farther the MarCOs are, the more precisely they need to point their antennas to communicate with Earth.The MarCOs won’t start moving toward the Sun again until this summer. The team will reattempt to contact the CubeSats at that time, though it’s anyone’s guess whether their batteries and other parts will last that long.Even if they’re never revived, the team considers MarCO a spectacular success.“This mission was always about pushing the limits of miniaturized technology and seeing just how far it could take us,” Andy Klesh, the mission’s chief engineer at JPL, said. “We’ve put a stake in the ground. Future CubeSats might go even farther.”With EVE and WALL-E’s success, NASA is set to continue launching a variety of new CubeSats in the coming years. JPL said they still have a number of the critical spare parts that can be used to build more CubeSats. Several of these systems were provided by commercial vendors, making it easier for other CubeSats to use them as well.“There’s big potential in these small packages,” John Baker, the MarCO program manager at JPL said. “CubeSats – part of a larger group of spacecraft called SmallSats – are a new platform for space exploration that is affordable to more than just government agencies.”For more information about the MarCO mission and CubeSats, visit EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Eddie Ndopu, Oxford’s first disabled African student, might not be able to attend

first_imgEddie Ndopu, a disability rights activist, is the first African student with a disability to be accepted into Oxford University. Beginning in Michaelmas 2016, he hopes to study for a Masters in Public Policy at the Blavatnik School of Government on a full academic scholarship; however, he still lacks the majority of the $33,000 he needs to pay the costs for an automated wheelchair and his carer, which Oxford’s scholarship does not cover.Ndopu told The Daily Vox, “The reason why I chose this institution was because this particular programme is the only programme in the entire world that looks at public policy through a global lens.” Applying to Oxford whilst still recovering from surgery, he claims that when he received his offer he “didn’t believe it. I thought they made a mistake, but then I realised that I am an Oxford student.”Originally from South Africa, Ndopu was diagnosed at the age of two with spinal muscular atrophy and given until the age of five to live. Now 25, he has a degree from Carleton University, Canada, where he served as a research analyst at the World Economic Forum. He was named one of the 30 greatest thinkers under 30 by Pacific Standard Magazine and was also head of the Youth Program for Africa at Amnesty International. In 2008, he was a member of the inaugural class of the African Leadership Academy.In his own words he describes himself as, “the guy on wheels who refuses to rest until every single disabled person in the world, until every single beautifully black and brown disabled soul gets a fighting chance at living their best life.”However, Ndopu may find himself unable to begin study in September, as the scholarship does not account for the costs of his disability needs. In response, Ndopu’s case has attracted significant attention and the campaign #OxfordEddiecated has been set up to crowdfund the $33,000 needed to cover the costs of an automated wheelchair and for a full-time carer to accompany him.“They [Oxford] assumed that I would able-bodied, so they did not account for the 24-hour care I will need,” Ndopu told South Africa’s Mail & Guardian, “there is no visa category for a caregiver who needs to accompany an international student with a disability because this has never happened at Oxford.”Hannah Jones, a DPhil student at Oxford writing for gal-dem online magazine, condemned the deficit in Ndopu’s scholarship. She wrote, “Eddie has highlighted an epic flaw in [Oxford’s] scholarships: an assumption that every scholar is able-bodied. Collectively, we need to wake up and create a more inclusive academia. This is our responsibility as human beings.“Oxford University is an astronomically wealthy institution, and Eddie’s predicament is so incredibly frustrating, because the funds clearly exist and can be sourced through dialogue and organisation between the institution and the South African government.”Oxford University has said in a statement, “We have awarded a place on our Master of Public Policy programme which is being accompanied by a full academic scholarship. The University provides high-quality support to staff and students with disabilities to meet their needs in work and study. Oxford fulfils the legal duty to make reasonable adjustments with the utmost care.“In this case, we are also working hard to explore financial options which can sustain the type of all-round support already being funded and provided long-term to the applicant in his home country. We welcome the determined, enterprising and creative efforts being made to fulfil the opportunity to study at Oxford by the applicant and his many friends and supporters.”last_img read more
