It put total funds required for the deal at $43bn, including options and pension obligations. Wednesday 18 August 2010 3:47 amlast_img read more

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors.center_img I wonder how many people in the UK have thousands tucked away in Cash ISA accounts? To guess the answer to that question, I’d say, probably millions of people. But cash savings interest rates are on the floor, so I’d rather invest in a Stocks and Shares ISA.In my adult lifetime, I’ve never seen anything like this before. Indeed, the halcyon days of cash savings interest rates being close to 10% are but a dimming memory. Nowadays, I have a problem: the value of my money in cash savings accounts is losing its spending power because of the effects of general price inflation.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…Shrinking debt and expanding assetsThis problem threatens to escalate. Indeed, the government is taking on a lot of extra borrowings to fight the economic effects of the coronavirus crisis. And general price inflation tends to help the indebted. Why? Because it shrinks the real value of debt over time. So, there’s a strong incentive for the government to encourage inflation in the years ahead.And one way to stoke up inflation is to keep interest rates low. So, I reckon cash savings accounts will be a dead loss for years to come. However, inflation tends to push up the value of assets such as property and shares. And there’s an opportunity for me in that situation.I feel sure inflation could ramp up soon. So, I’ve been making some big-ticket purchases in connection with the ongoing improvement of my home. Indeed, spending cash now could buy me more value than spending the same money later, after prices have risen. And in terms of asset allocation, I already have a fair chunk of money tied up in my mortgage-free house.How I’d target a 7% returnBut I believe there’s an opportunity to get an annualised return close to 7% from the stock market. Indeed, a lot of published research points to historic returns close to the 7% figure, particularly in the US stock market. But investing for a long period of time is key to getting a return like that. And it’s also a good idea to iron out some of the volatility by spreading my investment broadly in the market.Happily, I can do that easily and cheaply by investing in tracker funds. I’d go for putting regular monthly money into a Stocks and Shares ISA and spread it between tracker funds such as iShares Core S&P 500 UCITS ETF, Vanguard FTSE 250 UCITS ETF, and iShares Core FTSE 100 UCITS ETF. I’d make sure to plough back in all the dividend income along the way to compound and enhance my returns – many funds will do that automatically. Past performance suggests this could be a relatively low-risk way to get an annualised return close to 7% over the next 20 years or so.I reckon that’s a good way to start investing. But with experience, I’d follow other investors before me and aim for even higher returns by investing in carefully selected shares of individual companies as well as funds.

first_imgCity business school renamed due to slavery links Howard Lake | 24 April 2021 | News The logic of a new name AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The business school received a £5m donation in 2001 from Sir John Cass’s Foundation. The school moved from its original home in the Barbican to expanded premises, and was named in honour of Cass following the donation. Sir John Cass was a merchant who made a fortune from the slave trade. His wealth was used posthumously in 1748 to create an education charity named after Cass. This too has now been renamed The Portal Trust. Advertisement Until the formal name change in September the business school will be known as The Business School (formerly Cass). City University in London is to rename its business school due to the historical slavery links of the educational charity that funded it and after whom it was named in 2001. City University removed Cass’s name from its campus in July 2020 following criticisms and concerns raised by students following the Black Lives Matter protests held in the wake of George Floyd’s murder in the USA. As a result the business school will be renamed Bayes Business School on 6 September. Thomas Bayes was a nonconformist theologian and mathematician, whose work on conditional probability is central to the business school’s core disciplines of finance, actuarial science and many branches of management. They also underpin artificial intelligence and machine learning. The decision was based on “a comprehensive and transparent consultation process with relevant stakeholders”. The university received over 150 suggested names. Over 8,000 members of staff and current and prospective Business School students and alumni gave feedback on the shortlisted names. The Business School will also launch a scholarship programme for Black undergraduate students in the UK “to improve under-representation within the School”. This programme will run for ten years from 2022/23 and offer ten scholarships per year, covering all tuition fees and an annual stipend.  822 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Bayes died in 1761 and is buried opposite the business school in Bunhill Fields in the City of London. The issue of charitable grantmakers and gifts made from the profits of slavery has of course been raised before 2020. New Director of Development at City University, London (7 April 2005)Stuart Etherington appointed as Honorary Visiting Professor at City University (14 April 2003) Scholarships for Black British students Ms Julia Palca, Chair of City University’s Council said: Main image: “Thomas Bayes” by Simon Harriyott is licensed under CC BY 2.0 The University and the Business school have also announced other measures to accompany the change of name. Bayes’ theorem, according to the university, suggests that we get closer to the truth by constantly updating our beliefs in proportion to the weight of new evidence. “It is this idea – not only the person – that is the motivation behind adopting this name”, it added. Tagged with: diversity equity ethics Funding Law / policy London slavery “The Bayes theorem matters for our Business School – we are located in the heart of a financial centre, a tech centre and one of the great cosmopolitan cities of the world… Continued use of Sir John Cass’s name would have honoured someone whose wealth was augmented from the exploitation of slavery, which is wholly incompatible with our values of diversity and inclusion.” In addition to the name change City University has committed to funding five PhD scholarships for Black British students each year, one for each of City’s five Schools, including the Business School.

He’s worked in everything from sports to student organizations at TCU, and recently began blogging with the Dallas Morning News. In his spare time, Grant enjoys tweeting far too much, pretending he knows more than he does about Premier League soccer, and listening to the music of Kanye West. ReddIt Grant McGalliardhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/grant-mcgalliard/ printAs the first wave of exams hit TCU students, many Horned Frogs will be looking for a way to lock in and focus on their studies.  Rather than coffee, Red Bull and a rigid study schedule, however, a selection of students both at TCU and across the nation will turn to using so-called “study drugs,” such as Adderall and Vyvanse. A study published in June by a group of researchers headed by Dr. Niloofar Bavarian found the rates of illegal stimulant use for college students has varied wildly in studies, with one article claiming a percentage as low as 3.4 percent and another claiming a percentage as high as 60.8 percent. The purpose behind the drugs  These drugs, which are prescribed for those with attention deficit hyperactive disorder, or ADHD, are purported to help individuals focus.Adderall, Vyvanse and their cousins are part of a drug group called “stimulants,” which increase the dopamine and norepinephrine levels in the brain. The result of this physiological action is an increased level of attention and focus and a drop in hyperactivity.Hugh Echols, a ranch management major at TCU, said that he was prescribed Adderall at a young age to improve his focus in class.“I took it to stay focused,” Echols said, “but I weaned off of it later in life.”“I just didn’t like the way it made me feel.”  The TCU situation  The TCU Police Department is familiar with handing out “study drug” violations.TCU Police Department’s Lt. Ramiro Abad said that violations often occur during times when students are typically studying the hardest, such as exam weeks.“People want to jam up during study times,” Abad said.Chandler Thomas, a senior early childhood education major, said that she has heard of the illegal use of the drugs on TCU campus.  “I think I’ve heard about it a lot,” Thomas said. “I can’t say whether there’s a higher usage here versus another school because I don’t have the information to compare it against, but I definitely think it’s something that’s present here.”Emilie Mahoney, a sophomore English and political science double major, said that she thinks TCU is comparable to the average college campus in terms of rate of abuse.“I would say it’s about the same,” Mahoney said. “It’s different because we’re a small private school — maybe for the concentration level, there’s probably more than public universities.”A tolerating cultureWhile the unprescribed use of study drugs is by all definitions illegal, there is hardly negative stigma surrounding their abuse.Mahoney, Echols and Thomas all agreed that they had no problems with people who chose to use Adderall and Vyvanse without a prescription.“I think it’s bad for them in the long run, but it’s not really my business,” Mahoney said. “I don’t really care if they do it now.”Thomas said that she doesn’t see people who use them “any differently.”“Each person has their own ways in which they study,” Thomas said. “I don’t think I would think any less of someone for doing that.”“They need to do what they need to do for their classes.”Echols said that he “doesn’t really mind it.”“If they think it helps them succeed in school, and helps them succeed in life, then I hope it helps them,” Echols said.The attitude of these students towards the misuse of stimulants largely mirrors the general nationwide attitude shown towards the issue by some in pop culture.A diverse range of musicians, from rappers Danny Brown and Future to the rock group The Hold Steady have all name-dropped Adderall on tracks in the past few years.Social media posts proclaiming a user’s love for study drugs have become commonplace.[<a href=”//storify.com/GrantMcGTCU/study-drugs-and-social-edia” target=”_blank”>View the story “Study Drugs and Social Media” on Storify</a>]Abad said that he sees elements of this tolerating culture as well.“People abuse it just like they abuse alcohol,” Abad said. “People are going to experiment.”  The legal response to illegal drugs   While the popular attitude towards stimulant abuse is tolerant, the legal consequences are anything but.In Texas, possession of less than one gram of an unprescribed stimulant is a state jail felony, punishable by up to 180 days to 2 years in a state jail.Abad says that in many cases, having an unprescribed pill found in a search is much more costly than the original cause of the search.  “We stopped someone a few years back, and he had some capsules in his pocket, and they weren’t prescribed,” Abad said. “He had Adderall and Vyvanse…and he was escorted into the jail.”  The TCU Police Department typically discovers illegal stimulant use as a result of a room search by Housing and Residence Life, Abad said.“Generally, the ones that we’ve been aware of are when they do an administrative search through housing,” Abad said. “They’ll find — besides paraphernalia — excess pills or unknown pills in a container.”“If they find a plastic bag that’s not marked, or a prescription bottle, they’ll send it to us,” Abad said.“We double check to see what it is, just like we test for marijuana,” Abad said. “We let them know what is, and then they dole out the consequences for the student.”In the end, Abad said, there’s a simple solution to avoiding the consequences of illegal prescription drug use. “The best thing to do is to just take your medicine the way it’s prescribed to be taken.”Editor’s Note: In this TCU 360 article, “‘Study drugs’ a presence on campus,” several Twitter posts from individuals were cited in the article. The article’s use of these tweets was not meant to imply that those individuals’ possible use of the drugs described in the article was improper or unlawful.
