Google’s initial distribution model, which sold the handset exclusively through its website, was heavily criticised by users who had nowhere to direct questions. Google found its website swamped with complaints and was eventually forced to stock the phone in carriers’ stores to overcome the problem.Carphone Warehouse chief operating officer Andrew Harrison said: “I’m absolutely delighted that the Carphone Warehouse is working with Google to offer such a strong product exclusively to our customers.”The Nexus S – the first phone to run on the latest version of Google’s Android platform – will feature a contoured screen that the firm says will fit the shape of a user’s face, as well as limiting glare.It will also come with Near Field Communication (NFC) technology, which allows the phone to read information from “smart” objects by touching the handset to anything embedded with a special microchip.The phone, manufactured by Samsung, will be available free with a contract. The Nexus One, built by HTC, failed to make a splash when it was released earlier this year, but Google’s Android software is now growing faster than phones powered by Apple or RIM.Separately, Google yesterday launched its first eBookstore in the US, in a direct attempt to challenge Amazon and Apple’s dominance of the e-books market. It said its store included all of the current New York Times bestseller list, and offered 3m books for free. The store is expected in Europe next year.ANALYSIS BYBEN WOODCCS INSIGHTThe Nexus S is positioned as a “pure Google smartphone”. It has similar specifications to the tablet Galaxy S, but runs Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). The deal with Carphone Warehouse underlines the importance of independent distributors beyond operators to Google. Despite the initial failure of the Nexus One, Google’s intent clearly remains unchanged. However, it seems like an opportunist move by Samsung, with only short-term gain potential, as more Android 2.3 devices are expected in January. whatsapp Share by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableySerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeHistorical GeniusHe Was The Smartest Man Who Ever Lived – But He Led A Miserable LifeHistorical GeniusMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Heraldcenter_img whatsapp KCS-content Carphone in exclusive deal with Google Monday 6 December 2010 9:14 pm Tags: NULLlast_img read more

I know that if I want to reduce risk, I should diversify my investments. The warning to never put all my eggs in one basket always spring to mind. Well, here are a few ways how I’m diversifying my own portfolio.Asset classesThe first thing I do is to make sure I’ve a good spread of assets. This means having exposure to stocks, bonds, property and cash. And yes I include a small amount of cash as it’s liquid.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…It’s important to have a broad range of investments as each one will react differently to adverse events. Having a combination should reduce my portfolio’s overall volatility. The idea is that if some assets perform poorly then the others should offset this by delivering positive results.Of course, I’m aware that there’s no guarantee this will happen. And even the professional fund managers that are paid to invest can’t get it right all the time.Active versus passiveWhen it come to diversification, I’ll also look at how I’d like to gain exposure to a certain asset class. Here I’ll take the example of UK stocks as these are my primary focus. Rather than doing the hard work and picking individual stocks myself, I can diversify easily through active or passive management. But what does this mean?Active investments include selecting investments trusts and funds. Here I’m paying fund managers to hold a portfolio of UK shares and make the decisions on which companies to buy and sell.Even selecting my portfolio of direct UK stocks is considered as active management. This is because I’m actively selecting which shares I’d like to invest in.Passive management includes investments such as Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) or tracker funds. These securities typically track the underlying index. So for example, if I want exposure to the FTSE 100 index, rather than buying all the constituents of the UK’s leading stock market, I’d buy a FTSE 100 ETF. This could be one like the iShares FTSE 100 ETF but there are many others available too.One thing to note here is that active investments are generally more expensive than their passive counterparts. So I always weigh up the pros and cons of each before dipping my toe in.Location location locationI shouldn’t forget to mention that the location of my investments is also important. So when its comes to shares, I’m looking beyond UK companies to diversify my portfolio. I’d also include firms that are listed on US, Asian and European stock markets.This is because, for example, volatility in the US stock markets may not affect European or Asian equities. This way I’m diversifying my exposure and minimising my risk.While diversifying my portfolio reduces risk and volatility, it doesn’t always ensure positive returns. Investments can go up as well as down. They can fall especially when there’s a black swan event such as the coronavirus crisis.But I know that this way gives me the best possible shot to maximise my returns.center_img Enter Your Email Address Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Rev. Chad Gandiya, is the lawful trustee of diocesan church properties. This decision means Anglicans will once again be able to worship in their church buildings, and the diocese can retake control of other properties including schools, clinics and orphanages.It is the end of a six year-long battle with an excommunicated bishop, Nolbert Kunonga, who left the Church of the Province of Central Africa (CPCA) and founded his own rival church. His claims to church properties in Harare and elsewhere in Zimbabwe resulted in worshippers being kicked out of churches — often violently — and clergy losing their homes and places of work.Gandiya said he was “elated” at the news that the Supreme Court had ruled in their favor. In an open letter to the church and its supporters he wrote: “My dear sisters and brothers in Christ, this is your victory! This is your hour! Give all the glory to our almighty Father in heaven. I want to immediately call upon all our people to be gracious in winning the legal battle. Now let the work begin!“With the good news about the Supreme Court judgment in our favor, I am once again calling on all members of our beloved diocese and friends both near and far to heed to our call to join us in…rebuilding the diocese.”Gandiya has asked every parish to undertake an inspection of all the buildings they were banned from using and then renovate them. But more than the buildings themselves, the bishop called on parishes to rebuild those who had suffered through the persecution.“The rebuilding of God’s people in our diocese should be a priority also,” he said. “Our people were greatly traumatized by the persecution of the last five years. They are in need of healing. The spiritual and pastoral care of our people through holistic ministry should be reflected in all our diocesan and parish programs. In many ways we had already started doing this. None-the-less, we need to strengthen it.”Archbishop Albert Chama, primate of CPCA, told ACNS that the decision was also great news for the province as a whole. “We thank God for the outcome of the Supreme Court in Zimbabwe,” he said. “We know that God has always been on our side, and today this has come clear for the Province of Central Africa and in particular for the Anglican Church in Zimbabwe. We thank all the people who have been praying and standing with us.”Fighting Kunonga’s case through the courts has cost CPCA considerable funds. Over the years, appeals were made by the province to the rest of the Anglican Communion for help to continue paying for legal fees. The investment has paid off, and the church in Zimbabwe is now looking forward to a brighter future in which services can be held in churches again rather than outside or in alternative venues such as pubs and sports clubs.Shortly after the news, messages of support and congratulations were sent to Gandiya by members of the Anglican Communion, including Bishop of Southwark Christopher Chessun, whose diocese has been a long-time supporter of the Anglican Church in Zimbabwe.This has been a battle that has seen the Anglican Communion as a global family praying and acting together. Anglicans around the world have been praying for the situation, and last year the archbishops of Canterbury, Southern Africa, Central Africa, and Tanzania together met with the country’s president Robert Mugabe. During the meeting they presented him with a a dossier compiled by the bishops in Zimbabwe which gave a full account of the abuses to which Anglicans had been subject. They asked then that the president use his powers as Head of State to put an end to all unacceptable and illegal behavior.While the persecution lessened following that visit, it has taken until today for the legal system in Zimbabwe to finally bring an end to this persecution and injustice.center_img Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Zimbabwe Anglicans to return to churches after Supreme Court ruling Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Youth Minister Lorton, VA Comments (4) Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 Rector Knoxville, TN AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Associate Rector Columbus, GA Submit a Press Release Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Rector Albany, NY This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Belleville, IL The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Tips on Choosing Specialty Crop Varieties that Sell

But how do you know which varieties to choose? During the Great Lakes Expo, Dr. Ron Goldy of Michigan State University Extension said that just because you grow a particular specialty crop, it doesn’t mean that’s what your customers will want.As you’re making your spring planting plans, Goldy has few things to consider.“The first thing you really want to look at and determine is what is your market or who is your market,” he said. “Are you selling wholesale through a broker, direct to restaurants, drive-by customers or other ways you’re going directly to them. [For example] setting up a booth at a farmers market and selling there.”The second thing is identifying who your customers are and some demographic information.“Find out their ethnicity, education level, income, age, and family size,” said Goldy. “Some of these things will go together. These could all go into playing a part how you select a certain variety to grow.”Goldy added that if you’re marketing near a city with a higher education institution, there’s going to be a couple of those factors that come into play.“You’re going to have a fair amount of well-traveled people,” he said. “You can offer some of these things that could be different than what your less-traveled people might want—those that just buy their food at a local supermarket. Knowing what your market wants helps you decide what you’re going to grow.”Growers also want to look at pest and disease resistance in their varieties, as well as intended use.“Is it going to be used for processing or sold for fresh because that does make a difference,” Goldy said.The final thing specialty crop growers should keep in mind when choosing varieties is how adaptable they are to conditions. Some things to consider are soil temperature and day length.To help guide your decision making, check out the Midwest Vegetable Variety Trial Report. Facebook Twitter SHARElast_img read more

Court asked him to deposit Rs.10,000 to the Chief Minister’s relief fund. Justice Sadhna Jadhav was hearing the application for bail filed by Shivputra Anaray Shrigan, who was booked by Akkalkot North police Station in Solapur. According to the prosecution, the District Magistrate, Solapur had passed a prohibitory order under section 144 of CrPC on March 2. However, on March 29, a fair of God Parmeshwar in village Wagdari was organized. Even though the police had requested the villagers not to assemble, as ordered under section 144 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, the villagers reasoned that it was customary for them to gather at the temple. The police were trying to convince the mob, however, the people present had opposed the same, raised their voices and had pelted stones at the police. On March 30, a police inspector lodged a report at the police station for offences punishable under Sections 353, 332, 333, 143, 147, 149, 186, 188, 269, 270, 504, 506 of the Indian Penal Code and under section 37(1) (3) read with section 135 and 139 of the Maharashtra Police Act and section 2, 3 and 4 of Epidemic Diseases Act, 1897 read with Rule 11 of Maharashtra COVID-19 Rules. Some of the accused were arrested by Akkalkot North Police Station. According to the applicant’s lawyer Vikrant Phatate, his client was summoned by the Panch Committee for performing pooja of the Chariot carrying the God and the applicant had obliged the panch committee of the temple. Justice Jadhav noted- “That prima facie there is no material to show that the applicant had quarreled with the police or had pelted stone at the police. Prima facie, there is no material to indicate that custodial interrogation is warranted. Taking into consideration the age of the applicant as well as the fact that no overt act is attributed to the applicant, the applicant deserves ad-interim relief on imposing certain conditions.” Thus, granting ad-interim relief, the Court ruled that bail can be granted in the event of arrest after furnishing a bond of Rs.15,000 and depositing a cost of Rs. 10,000 towards the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund within 8 weeks.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more

The Single Bench of Justice Anup Jairam Bhambhani has directed Shivinder Mohan Singh to furnish a personal bond of ₹1 crore and two sureties of ₹25 lacs each. In addition to this, Singh has also been directed to surrender his passport. Shivinder Mohan Singh is accused of money laundering as per the offences laid down in sections 3 and 4 of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act. He, along with his brother Malvinder Singh, and Sunil Godhwani, are accused of committing financial fraud running into 3000 crores, which is dated to the period of their ownership of Religare Finvest. Earlier, the trial court had rejected Singh’s bail plea after taking into consideration the allegations of utilising the proceeds of crime and also of advancing unsecured loans to different entities. Senior Advocate Hariharan, who appeared for Singh had argued that the bail should be granted to the Petitioner that the evidence in the present case has already been recorded and there is nothing on the record that warrants further incarceration. Enforcement Directorate, on the other hand, had opposed the bail plea on the ground that there’s a possibility of the accused tampering with the evidence, he poses a flight risk, and that he can influence the witnesses.
