Diageo, which already distributes Cuervo on behalf of the Beckmann family that owns the brand, is said to be considering a $2bn (£1.2bn) takeover offer. The move comes just a week after the company was linked to Polish spirits group Stock, as it attempts to broaden its reach in emerging markets to offset flagging domestic sales.Diageo, the maker of Johnnie Walker whisky and Smirnoff vodka, last month also agreed to buy Turkish spirits firm Mey Icki for £1.3bn. Walsh halted Diageo’s share buyback programme in 2009 to help fund the company’s war chest. Cuervo has been tightly held by the Beckmann dynasty for six generations, but is now said to be in talks to appoint Barclays Capital to help it sell off the company. BarCap declined to comment yesterday. Cuervo and Diageo signed a joint venture in 2003, with the former paying $100m for a 50 per cent stake in Diageo’s Don Julio tequila brand.Drinks firms have undertaken a spate of takeovers and consolidation in recent months as companies look to shelter from faltering sales.The spirits arms of consumer goods group Fortune Brands is expected to be put on the block later this year, while France’s Rémy Cointreau told the market last month it was in exclusive talks to sell its champagne business to EPI. Diageo declined to comment yesterday, while Jose Cuervo’s head office was not available for comment.

Pension tax attack! I’d buy UK shares in an ISA to avoid Rishi Sunak’s wealth grab

I’d buy UK shares in an ISA to avoid Rishi Sunak’s wealth grab I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Enter Your Email Address See all posts by Harvey Jones “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I’m a fan of investing in UK shares at any time, but especially right now. This year’s stock market crash has thrown up plenty of bargains for long-term investors who are happy to look beyond current turmoil. Now there’s another pressing reason to invest, and use your tax-free Stocks and Shares ISA allowance. It could help you escape the upcoming tax grab from Chancellor Rishi Sunak.The Chancellor is popular today, as his furlough scheme has saved millions from unemployment, while Eat Out to Help Out has given the restaurant trade a much-needed boost. He won’t be as popular if he unleashes a £30bn-a-year tax raid in November’s budget, as reports suggest.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…Fighting Covid-19 does not come cheap. The government borrowed a record £127.9bn between April and June to keep the country afloat. The national debt now stands at a mind-boggling £2tr. At some point, somebody has to pay. That point is likely to come in November. Buying UK shares today can head off some of the worst consequences.Buy UK shares and save taxThe Treasury is said to be considering a number of options to raise tax, several of which will hit investors hard. One is to increase capital gains tax (CGT), to bring it in line with income tax rates. I think this change is particularly likely, as it will be marginally less painful (from a political point of view) than some of the other options.If you invest inside a Stocks and Shares ISA, you do not have to pay any income tax on your returns, or CGT either. I’d recommend using as much of your £20,000 annual allowance as you can afford to invest in UK shares today, while they are still cheap after the stock market crash.The Chancellor may also scrap or temporarily suspend the State Pension ‘triple lock’, which guarantees that pension income will rise in line with earnings, inflation, or 2.5%, whichever is higher. If that goes, it will increase the importance of investing in UK shares under your own steam.Possibly a bigger worry for investors in UK shares is that Sunak will target pensions tax relief. This tops up your workplace or personal pension contributions by either 20%, 40%, or 45%, depending on your tax bracket.Pension tax relief targetedThis idea has been floated again and again in recent years, but never made it into the Budget speech. That could now change. I could see Sunak reducing the benefit to 25% for all. So if you are a higher or additional rate taxpayer, you should consider taking advantage of this valuable sweetener today, to turbocharge your pension. Especially while UK shares are cheap.As far as I can see, there is no talk of the Treasury targeting the £20,000 Stocks and Shares ISA allowance. This is already a hugely attractive way to invest in UK shares. If Sunak’s tax attack does happen, it will be even more appealing.That gives you another reason to buy UK shares today, as building your retirement wealth by other means could prove harder.

Why faith inspires people to give

Please enter your email address here LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your name here Please enter your comment! By David P. King and first published on theconversation.comAfter Thanksgiving, Americans turn their attention to shopping with Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday as well as holidays such as Hanukkah and Christmas. However, this is also the time for giving.In recent years, nonprofits have sought to capitalize on this attention both on shopping and giving with Giving Tuesday. Last year, this global day of giving raised over US$177 million online. The bulk of all giving – about 31 percent – comes at the end of the year, and individuals are likely to receive scores of requests on Giving Tuesday and through the end of the year.How do donors make decisions about their giving?For the majority of Americans, it turns out that faith plays a leading role, through church donations and other means, in their desire to give and serve. This is where I focus my research.Philanthropy and religionLet’s first look at available data to understand how much giving is tied to one’s faith.According to Giving USA, the leading annual report of philanthropy in America, religious contributions, narrowly defined as giving to houses of worship, denominations, missionary societies and religious media, made up 32 percent of all giving in America in 2016.Another study found that 73 percent of all American giving went to a house of worship or a religiously identified organization.Many of these organizations make up the world’s largest NGOs. For example, three of the top 10 biggest charities by total revenue last year, the Catholic Charities, Salvation Army and National Christian Foundation, are explicitly religious. Religious agencies make up 13 of the top 50 charities in the U.S.It is true that factors such as wealth, income, education and marital status are all predictors of giving. But religious belief and practice are one of the best predictors.Overall, religious Americans volunteer more, give more and give more often, not only to religious but secular causes as well. Among Americans who give to any cause, 55 percent claim religious values as an important motivator for giving.What religions tell usThese values of giving are deeply rooted in the texts, traditions and practices of many faiths. Take, for example, the messages within the three Abrahamic faiths.In Judaism, the Hebrew Scriptures refer to “tzedakah,” literally meaning justice. Tzedakah is considered a commandment and a moral obligation that all Jews should follow. The commitment to justice places a priority on their giving to help the poor. Beyond giving just time and money, rabbis even spoke of “gemilut chasadim,” literally meaning loving-kindness, or focusing on right relationship with one another as the prerogative of religious giving.Even more broadly, an ancient Jewish phrase, “tikkun olam,” meaning to repair or heal the world, has been adopted by many religious and secular causes. Barack Obama, when he was president, would often refer to the phrase. So did past President Bill Clinton and 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. President George W. Bush hinted at a vision of tikkun olam in his second inaugural address.Similarly, the Christian tradition has considered giving a key religious practice. Many Christians still look to the Hebrew Bible and the tithe, which involves giving one-tenth of an individual’s income, as God’s commandment.In the New Testament, Jesus not only spoke of giving a tithe but challenged followers to give far beyond it. For instance, in the Gospel of Matthew Jesus told the rich young ruler to sell all his possessions. Pursuing those values, a long monastic tradition has seen men and women taking vows of poverty to give themselves to the work of their faith. Today, while the tithe might not be practiced by a majority of Christians, most understand the practice of giving as a central part of their faith.For Muslims, giving is one of the five pillars of Islam. “Zakat” (meaning to grow in purity) is an annual payment of 2.5 percent of one’s assets, considered by many as the minimum obligation of their religious giving. A majority of Muslims worldwide make their annual zakat payments as a central faith practice.Above and beyond the required zakat, many Muslims make additional gifts (referred to broadly as “sadaqa”). Interestingly, the word shares the same root as the Jewish “tzedakah,” meaning justice. Muslim giving also focuses primarily on the poor.Of course, charitable giving is not just for the rich. For those with no money to give, the Prophet Muhammad considered even the simple act of smiling to be charity, a gift to another.Building a communityAn aid worker in Addis Ababa. Bread for the World, CC BY-NC-NDReligious traditions are clear that the value of giving does not simply rest with those receiving the gift. Givers themselves benefit. As sociologist Christian Smith makes clear, there is a paradox to generosity – in giving we receive and in grasping we lose.At the same time, the goal of religious giving is not just about what it brings to individuals. Rather, it is more a focus on human interaction and a vision of community.Perhaps most famously, the 12th-century Rabbi Maimonides outlined eight levels of giving– the lowest being giving grudgingly and the highest to sustain, but also to empower a person to no longer need charity.Maimonides made clear it is not so much the amount of giving but how one gives that is important in establishing a relationship between the giver and the recipient. Giving should avoid humiliation, superiority and dependence.When it comes to much of humanitarian work and social services, religion is often the greatest asset. Whether fighting AIDS, malaria or poverty, the development and nonprofit community has realized that the success of local programs so often turns on the support of the local faith community. The engagement of the local religious leader and a willingness to interact with his or her religious vernacular is essential.Just a few years ago, the humanitarian industry was convinced of the truth of this view when it found that a majority of the health care workers left on the ground in the midst of the Ebola crises were missionaries. Faith is the chief motivator for those both funding and serving at home and in some of the most difficult parts of the world.Connecting with valuesIn working through the mandate of various religious traditions toward the healing of the world and individual motivations to give, people might understand that they have more in common than perhaps they realize.This could also help them reflect more intentionally on their contributions at the end of this year. Instead of simply giving as part of their routine this December, perhaps people should take account how their faith and values motivate their giving and the work of the nonprofits that they support.In doing so, many might find their giving and connection to their faith, the faith of others and the work to which they have given acquire more meaning for them – at this time of the year and in the years to come.This is an updated version of an article originally published on Aug. 19, 2017.David P. King is the Karen Lake Buttrey Director of Lake Institute on Faith & Giving as well as Assistant Professor of Philanthropic Studies within the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy.

Munster claim Australian scalp at freezing Thomond Park

first_imgWednesday Nov 17, 2010 Munster claim Australian scalp at freezing Thomond Park Munster beat Australian 15-6 in a midweek clash last night at a windswept Thomond Park where the weather was more of a feature than the rugby on hand. Ironically it was Australian Paul Warwick who handled the conditions best, kicking all the points for the home side.Rain, wind, and freezing conditions greeted an experimental Australian side at Thomond Park as they looked to get over the heavy loss to England on Saturday by picking up a good win. Munster had other ideas though as Warwick kicked three penalties and two drop goals.Munster famously beat the All Blacks in 1978 so this win will go down as another great win and their fourth straight victory over touring Australia teams. The scrappy nature of the game, attributed to the conditions, didnt play in the visitors favour as speedsters like Lachie Turner and Rod Davies were wasted out wide.“There’s a few boys in there suffering from hypothermia so we’re definitely not used to that,” said captain on the night, Berrick Barnes. “Maybe Munster can come to the outback and we’ll give them a bit of heat,” he added.It was a first for the majority of the young Aussies who certainly wouldnt have experienced such a night of rugby to date in their careers. It was to be expected though and Munster seemed to thrive on the nature of the game.They themselves werent at full strength, so theyll take the win as another famous scalp that will be spoken about for many years to come.

Tesco launches seventh Neighbourhood Food Collection

first_imgTesco launches seventh Neighbourhood Food Collection AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tesco’s seventh Neighbourhood Food Collection kicks off today, taking place across all stores until Saturday 5th December.The event is run by Tesco in partnership with The Trussell Trust and FareShare, and aims to provide at least five million meals to people in need this winter: making this its biggest Neighbourhood Food Collection to date. In addition to the meals, Tesco is adding an extra 30% to all customer donations in the form of financial support to the two charities.In the past, FareShare and The Trussell Trust have used this money to provide additional services at foodbanks, such as in-house financial advice, holiday lunch clubs for children, and the funding of deliveries in rural areas. The top-up has also helped FareShare to expand its network and reach more people in need. The top-up has resulted in combined funding of over £3.6 million to FareShare and The Trussell Trust since 2012.Since Tesco launched the Neighbourhood Food Collections in 2012, over 27.5 million meals, including the Tesco top-up, have been donated. Tesco hopes that this latest collection will take the total beyond 30 million. Tesco stores display shopping lists of the food required by both charities, and invite customers to buy any of these items and to leave them at the store’s collection point.The event relies heavily on volunteers, with last winter’s November collection involving some 20,000 across the UK. Tesco’s last collection took place in July, and saw customers donate 3.6m meals.Lindsay Boswell, CEO of FareShare, said:“It doesn’t need to take much, sadly, for an individual or a family to start struggling and experience hard times. The Neighbourhood Food Collection really helps us in our work to provide good food to 2,135 amazing frontline organisations which support people who are struggling to feed themselves.”  39 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Advertisementcenter_img Melanie May | 3 December 2015 | News Tagged with: corporate Donated goods Tesco About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Senior sheds light on mental illnesses

Mental Health Monologues, a series written by senior Jacob Buttry, was staged Sept. 12 as part of National Suicide Prevention Week. Buttry, a theatre and psychology major, said he wrote the show “to foster empathy.” Jacob Buttry created the show to help start a dialogue on mental illnesses. Photo Credit: Jacob Buttry “I developed the idea to create a monologue show that dramatically showcases the real stories of community members in order to provide an educational way decreasing stigma and increasing compassion on the topics of mental health and mental illness.”Jacob ButtrySuicide is the second leading cause of death among college-aged students, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, so Buttry’s goal for this show was to shine a light on the effects of mental illnesses and how relevant suicide is in college.“With the week focusing on suicide awareness, the main thing I took from the show and the message was to check up on people,” said Marielle Wyatt, a first-year theatre major.The show featured nine TCU theatre students who auditioned for the roles before the start of the fall semester. Each student would enter center stage in order to act out a specific person and their illness. The show provided the audience with an inside look into what daily life is like for someone who suffers with a disorder.Wyatt said she auditioned for the show because the topic was something she’s passionate about.“I would like to be an advocate for awareness,” Wyatt said. “I felt like the show was a really good way to do that, and I wanted to be a part of it.”Buttry said he wanted the audience to leave the theatre knowing the facts about mental health issues and to inspire them to be more empathetic to those suffering. “One of my hopes was that by watching the show you would see how there is no need to be ashamed of these disorders — there is treatment out there and there are people out there wanting to help,” Buttry said. “My hope is that it can spread a feeling of hope among people who might be experiencing suicidal ideation.” The monologues told the stories of nine people dealing with mental illnesses, including anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, bipolar disorder, depression, psychosis, and addiction. Photo courtesy of Jacob Buttry Although the effects of mental health can be daunting, Buttry wanted the last line in the show to exude hope: “You just have to keep pushing forward. There are better days ahead. Rest now.” Lindsay Tomainihttps://www.tcu360.com/author/lindsay-tomaini/ Lindsay Tomainihttps://www.tcu360.com/author/lindsay-tomaini/ Twitter Lindsay Tomainihttps://www.tcu360.com/author/lindsay-tomaini/ World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Facebook Linkedinlast_img read more

This is ascribed to the fact that the Sakal Group’s owners come from a powerful local family that is related to Maharashtra deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar and his uncle, Sharad Pawar, the head of Nationalist Congress Party, which is part of Maharashtra’s ruling coalition to go further News Fake evidence RSF demands release of detained Indian journalist Siddique Kappan, hospitalised with Covid-19 News In India, many legislative safeguards protect press freedom in theory but they are often flouted in practice. It is ranked 142nd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index. Help by sharing this information The Newslaundry website accuses the group of waging a “relentless campaign of harassment” and even “a war” against its reporter, Prateek Goyal, “We call on the Mumbai court’s judges to end Prateek Goyal’s nightmare by immediately dismissing this absurd accusation about the use of a logo,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. “We also ask Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray to ensure that his government ends any kind of interference in the police apparatus with the aim of harassing journalists who cause annoyance. His national and international credibility is at stake.” Detained since 14 April, when he was arrested again on the basis of the same questionable evidence, Navlakha is facing a possible seven-year prison sentence. Goyal is very concerned that he could now suffer a similar fate because of the stories he wrote in March and June. In fact, no lawsuit materialized. But Sakal went on the attack again in September, bringing a criminal case against Goyal for alleged misuse of its official logo, because the media group’s logo had been used to illustrate the two stories. “This does not constitute violation of the Trademark Act,” Newslaundry lawyer Nipun Katyal told RSF. “The logo was not used for any commercial purpose. It is a routine practice to carry the picture of the company’s logo while reporting on it.” On 27 March, Goyal reported that the group planned to lay off 15 employees from its newspaper, the Sakal Times, in violation of a Maharashtra state ban on layoffs during the coronavirus pandemic. In a second article on 11 June, he revealed that the group now planned to lay off around 50 employees from the newspaper and to shut down its print edition. RSF_en “Their claims were absurd,” Goyal told RSF. “They didn’t explain what was ‘false’ in my stories. My story was based on facts for which I have evidence. If they can point out anything that is incorrect, as a reporter I am willing to be corrected and apologize for any mistake.” Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on the Maharashtra state government in western India to end the constant harassment of a website reporter – harassment involving nepotism, police pressure and judicial manipulation – because he made the mistake writing two articles about the Sakal Media Group, one of the state’s biggest press groups. As a result of this complaint, Goyal is being harassed by the police in Pune, the city where he is based. “The police are clearly after him,” said Katyal, adding that he is worried about his client’s safety. “They call him for no reason, ask irrelevant questions. It’s a daily harassment. He cannot stay in his own house in peace, and is having to shift to his friends’ places’ in other parts of the city, simply to avoid police harassment.” Receive email alertscenter_img In the latest episode in the harassment of Goyal, the Pune police are demanding that he hand over his laptop. “I don’t understand why they need my laptop to investigate a trademark violation case,” he said. “What if they tamper with it, plant an evidence and slap more sinister charges on me.” But Sakal Group brought a criminal case against Prateek Goyal for alleged misuse of its official logo (photos: Newslaundry – Sakal Media Group). Many observers point out that this would not the first time the Pune police have done this. In June 2018, they arrested nine human rights defenders, including reporter and columnist Gautam Navlakha, for supposedly plotting to kill the prime minister. The only evidence against them came from their computers and phones, which the police had previously confiscated.

100 journalists protest against bill to stiffen penalties for press offences

Around 100 members of the press demonstrated in the centre of Panama City yesterday to demand the bill’s withdrawal.“A disproportion between offence and penalty has an inhibiting effect on journalists and violates their right to inform and society’s right to be informed,” the press freedom organisation said. “We condemn this bill, which runs counter to the progress Panama has made in press freedom and free expression, especially by signing the Declaration of Chapultepec in June 1994 and repealing the gag laws in December 1999.”Reporters Without Borders added: “We appeal to President Martin Torrijos’ government and the national assembly to reject this amendment and to make the decriminalization of press offences their priority. And we extend our support to the journalists currently staging protests.”The prison terms for defamation and insult are doubled under the proposed amendment. They would be two to three years in prison (or a daily fine) for defamation and one to two years in prison for insult.Gonzalo Marroquín, the chairman of the Inter-American Press Association’s Committee on Freedom of the Press and Information, said the bill would run counter to the principles of the Organisation of American States (OAS) and the prevailing tendency in Latin America to decriminalize press offences.Presidential chief of staff Ubaldino Real said it would be desirable for journalists to be part of the commission that will examine the bill, which will probably be submitted to parliament in September.center_img Organisation RSF’s calls for release of Dutch journalist jailed in Panama News PanamaAmericas January 30, 2012 Find out more Receive email alerts News Anti-Corruption Day : Journalists on front line of fight against corruption December 7, 2016 Find out morelast_img read more

Al-Jazeera journalist facing possible death sentence for high treason

There are concerns that Muammar Gaddafi has already ordered the court to sentence him to death and then execute him at once.“This is appalling and outrageous,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We urge the Libyan authorities to be lenient with this journalist. Gaddafi has already done enough harm to the Libyan press without getting blood on his hands as well. Tallou’ must be freed at once. The international community must intercede and demand his release.”Tallou’ was arrested on 19 March near the western town of Zawiya with three other Al-Jazeera journalists who have since been released: Lotfi Messaoudi, a Tunisian freed on 31 March; Ahmed Vall Ould el-Dine, a Mauritanian freed on 11 April, and Ammar Al-Hamdane, a Norwegian freed on 14 April.
