iPhone alarm causes new year headache for Apple

first_img ALARMS failed for a third day for thousands of iPhone users yesterday, despite assurances from manufacturer Apple that the device would fix itself. Non-recurring alarms on the smart phone suffered a New Year bug that prevented the wake-up calls from working. The makers of the smart phone assured users the phones would work from yesterday, yet problems persisted with many handsets on the bank holiday as employees began to return to work. The malfunction comes after a number of high-profile iPhone glitches for Apple, including another alarm failure when the clocks went back in November.More serious issues surrounding reception on its latest iPhone 4 heaped embarrassment on the firm. Apple was forced to accept that reception on the device dropped when held in a certain way – which proved particularly troublesome for left-handed users.The potential impact glitches can have on the firm was underlined when Apple’s market cap plummeted $6bn (£3.9bn) the day after a bad review in an influential US electronics magazine earlier this year.

What’s more, it’s unlikely it’ll ever disappear as a business model. There will always be a need for buses and trains and, as the world’s population grows, demand is only going to increase.The biggest companies in the industry have a significant advantage. These operators have considerable economies of scale and, usually, good relationships with regulators.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…This suggests companies such as National Express (LSE: NEX) and Go-Ahead (LSE: GOG), which currently dominate the sector, should continue to do so for many years to come.National ExpressRecent trading updates from National Express showcase the international travel company’s strengths. Over the summer period, from 1 July to the 30 September, overall group revenue increased by 14.5% and operating profit grew 14.3%.During this period, the company signed several notable contracts. These include a €1bn, 700-bus contract in Casablanca for 15 years and 7.5-year contract renewal in Boston. This deal will nearly double National Express’s revenue in the Boston market to $420m.These large, long term contracts give the company plenty of visibility over its growth and cash flows. This is good news for investors, particularly income investors.At the time of writing, shares in the international transport group support a dividend yield of 3.7%. The payout is covered 2.1 times earnings per share, which suggests the company has plenty of headroom to both return cash to investors and spend more on improving its operations.The distribution has grown at an average rate of 8.2% over the past six years. Since 2013, it’s up 50%. On top of this, National Express is dealing at a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 12.6. That’s not too bad considering its growth potential over the long run.As such, now might be the time to snap a share in this public transport operator if you are looking for income and capital growth over the long run.Go-AheadPeer Go-Ahead offers a similar investment case. The stock is dealing at a P/E of 12.3 and supports a dividend yield of 5%. The payout is covered 1.6 times by earnings per share.Like National Express, Go-Ahead has been using its experience operating public transport networks here in the UK to drive expansion overseas.In December, the company started new contracts in Norway, Germany and Dublin. It already has a strong presence in the regional bus markets around the UK as well as in London. On top of these operations, Go-Ahead runs the GTR and Southeastern rail franchises. Internationally, it owns and operates rail contracts in Germany.With travellers becoming increasingly concerned about their impact on the environment, Go-Ahead should see rising customer numbers. The same goes for National Express. Governments around the world are planning to spend more building out public transport networks to reduce private car ownership and air travel.Go-Ahead, should be able to profit from this trend. By using its relations with regulators across Europe as well as economies of scale to bid for lucrative contracts. Therefore, if you’re looking for a long-term income and growth investment, Go-Ahead could be worth your research time. £5k to invest?

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Unit-Glaze SystemWindowsSky-FrameRetractable Insect Screen – Sky-Frame FlyWindowsAir-LuxSliding Window – CurvedAffordable, yet energy-efficient at the same timeTo provide a young family with a compact and affordable home, while in the process paying a great deal of attention to making it energy efficient, was the task facing the Staarc architects. The solution: creating a dynamic home wherein the dominant note is sounded by unobstructed, wide-open space and with a clear view of the rural surroundings.Save this picture!© Bram TackSave this picture!First floor planSave this picture!© Bram TackSJ HomeIn order to create this sense of unrestricted openness and a feeling of all-round breathing space, all rooms inside this home are concentrated around an open area. This not only provides a wide-open view but furthermore promotes and facilitates interaction amongst the home occupants. In addition, the traditional boundaries that normally separate the different floors are being blurred through the introduction of split-levels.Save this picture!© Bram TackIn order to make this home future-proof, the architect and homeowner devoted a great deal of attention to the insulation, with a focus on air sealing and air tightness. Furthermore, the heating system is operated by means of an air-to-water heat pump that is connected to the floor heating. And, as a final touch, the use of solar panels provides the assurance that this is, indeed, a fully energy-efficient home (with an energy efficiency value of 18).Save this picture!© Bram TackSave this picture!Longitudinal SectionSave this picture!© Bram Tack Central to the home’s architectural design is the open space which connects all rooms with each other and via large windows admits plenty of natural daylight. Note the floor in poly-concrete, which creates an industrial but, nonetheless, homey atmosphere. The introduction of split-levels ensures that the living spaces receive higher ceilings and that the interaction with the other rooms is enlarged. Besides the ground-level floor, likewise, all ceilings are constructed out of concrete. This home is characterised by the simple materials used in its construction, with the main emphasis, aside from concrete, placed on wood and red facing brickwork. By varying the position of the facing brickwork pattern between the horizontal and the vertical, the architect managed to introduce a light-hearted touch to the whole structure. Inside and around the bedrooms, the wooden floorboards inspire a feeling of cozy warmth. The wide-open space is maintained up to the roof apex. The owners selected a subtle, yet character-filled green colour for the bathroom fittings. This is not only evident in the bathroom tiles but recurs also elsewhere in the home, notably in the kitchen installations and furnishings.

Two thirds of trusts to maintain or increase income, say ACF

Advertisementcenter_img “Steps taken included reducing reliance on equities prior to the recession, and increasing investments overseas – which has led some to report a rise in income due to the weaker pound.”Members of the Association of Charitable Foundations manage well over £30 billion in investments and provide about 10% of the annual income for the voluntary sector.For this year, 36% of ACF members expect to maintain current levels of grantmaking, with 9% increasing these levels. Fifteen per cent anticipate higher grantmaking in 2010, and 38% plan to increase grantmaking over the longer term.However, some respondents did indicate they would make changes to their grantmaking next year: 44% said they were likely to give fewer grants, 27% believed their grants will be smaller, and 23% thought that they will be given over shorter periods.www.acf.org.uk AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

The feelgood factor – lessons from psychology

first_imgPeople giving for the first time were told that someone else had just given either $75, $180 or $300 against a control group who were not given this information. Those told of the gift gave significantly more than those who were not.However, there are cut off points beyond which people lose the incentive to keep up with the Joneses. In one test, the control gift was $121, those who were told a gift of $500 had been given gave an average of $172, but those who were told a gift of $1,000 had been given only gave an average of $146.Matching the gender of the previous donor with the one calling also increased the gift by around 30 per cent.Looking at it from the ‘moral’ point of view produced interesting results. Using words such as ‘generous’, ‘caring’, ‘caring’ made more than 10 per cent difference to the amount given by women – but none at all to the gift from men.We tend to use this sort of language in thank you letters, Sargeant said. “But this is too late. We should be using it just at the point we are asking them to give.” The feelgood factor – lessons from psychology Howard Lake | 8 July 2009 | News We can take lessons from psychology and use them to improve levels of giving in a way that makes people feel better about offering support to our organisations.In a session at the Institute of Fundraising National Convention, Adrian Sargeant told delegates how research had shown that different ‘social information’ can incentivise people to give more.The research was carried out with public radio stations in the US. It tested different approaches to donors who were ringing in to pledge support (rather akin to the Children in Need appeal in the UK on BBC radio stations).

Indiana Farm Bureau Continues Promoting Two Key Ag Bills

first_img Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Indiana Farm Bureau Continues Promoting Two Key Ag Bills SHARE By Andy Eubank – Mar 27, 2019 SHARE Previous articleReport: 55% of Corn Acres Face Potential FloodingNext articleIndiana Corn Groups Looking for Farmers to Serve on Board of Directors Andy Eubank INFB-legislative-updateThe Indiana Senate bill to reduce extraterritorial jurisdiction of cities and towns, SB535 authored by Senator Phil Boots of Crawfordsville was heard in committee last week, according to Katrina Hall with Indiana Farm Bureau, which is a strong supporter of the bill. The bill would address to what extent municipalities can control areas not in their boundaries.“Some really old laws allow them to do that four miles out, or even ten miles out, so we’re working to curb that and pull that back so that it’s a very clear distinction that folks outside of a municipality are really only under the regulatory scheme of a county,” Hall told HAT. “That’s really important and we’ve got a lot of momentum on that issue. We’re waiting to vote it out of the senate local government committee. We’re pretty confident that it’s got a good story.”The bill that quite possibly has seen the most negotiation this session is HB1270 which seeks to restore the Kankakee and Yellow Rivers through an improved oversight mechanism. The bill is authored by Rep. Doug Gutwein of Francesville.“A year ago when we had a lot of rain, many areas of those counties were under water for extended periods of time, so we want to try to get that alleviated so that farmers don’t have to deal with that,” she said. “And it isn’t just farmers, it’s other citizens as well. This is a comprehensive piece of legislation that includes a lot of collaboration for over eight counties. That’s been a challenge, but we’ve put a lot of effort into that over that last twelve months.”Hall said they’re currently contemplating some amendments to that bill.

This year’s contest topic was, “Freedom of the Press: What does it Mean?”Chan competed with three other Pasadena-area high-schoolers, and spoke about her rich history of living in two worlds – in China, with restrictions on the internet coined the “great firewall,” and in America, where media can be harmfully untrue, but at least gives the citizen a chance to hear from multiple sources.“I am thankful for the opportunity to speak on an issue so topical and vital to our current political realm,” Chan said. “I’m also grateful for Lions Club International’s consistent dedication to providing educational opportunities and shaping the leaders of tomorrow.”The other speakers in the club level contest were: Sylvia Wang, 15, who spoke of her parent’s experience working for a newspaper publication in China and the repercussions of speaking against their government; Tosten Pearson, 15, who stated that an alternative fact is 70 percent more likely to be shared on social media versus a verified fact; and Charles Dowell, 18, who focused on how the people need to understand their “media diet” of the new sources and the implications of reading biased reports.Pasadena Host Lions Club said the contest provides an opportunity for competitive public speaking among students on a subject of vital interest to the American people. The Lions Clubs encourage self-expression and independent thinking, and through the student speakers contest present to the public the intricacies of keeping the United States as a free nation.Chan will compete with other tournament winners in the region on March 9, 9 a.m., at the Pasadena Salvation Army Tabernacle, at 960 East Walnut Street. The six-level contest will continue into the spring.

The Bench of Justice B. Pugalendhi has further directed the University to admit the students, if they are otherwise eligible, after obtaining the undertaking that the admission would be subject to the result of the writ petitions. The matter before the Court The case of the petitioners was that after completing 10th standard, petitioners studied Diploma in polytechnic and thereafter, completed the engineering degree. Further, when they applied for an LLB course in the Madurai Law College, the petitioners’ application was rejected on the ground that they haven’t completed 10 +2 +3 which is the requirement as per the Bar Council Regulation. The Petitioners before the Court challenged the order of the Tamil Nadu Dr. Ambedkar Law University, rejecting the petitioners’ application for admission in L.L.B. Course. It was also prayed before the Court that a consequential direction to the University be granted admission to the petitioner in LLB (3 years) degree course in Madurai Law College for the academic year 2020-2021. Respondents’ submission The counsel appearing for the respondents submitted that as per the regulation, a student can pursue the three-year L.L.B.Hons. Degree course only with the qualification of 10+2+3. However, in this case, the petitioners instead of +2 (Higher Secondary), pursued polytechnic and thereafter, completed their Engineering degree by a regular course. Thus, it was submitted that these matters are likely to be listed before the General Council for approval and so the counsel submitted that he needs some time to get written instructions in this regard. Since the petitioners completed degree without studying +2, instead, they studied polytechnic, a diploma course for three years, it was informed that the issue had been referred to the Bar Council of India and a decision has to be taken by them.
