Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. The oil price recovery should drive up the BP share price, but I expect a bumpy ride I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Enter Your Email Address As the price of crude oil rises, I think the BP (LSE: BP) share price should also climb higher. I would buy the stock today in anticipation of that, but would also be wary, as the company faces an awful lot of challenges.Yesterday, the BP share price fell 4.53% after it unveiled a larger-than-expected full-year loss of $5.7bn, down from a profit of $10bn last year. Management blamed this on “lower oil and gas prices, significant exploration write-offs and refining margins and depressed demand”. You can blame Covid-19 for most of that.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…Even though Brent crude has recovered to $57 a barrel, the pandemic has inflicted long-term damage. The FTSE 100 oil giant has now written-down the value of oil and gas assets by $6.5bn in response to lower long-term energy price forecasts.The BP share is due a recoveryYet I believe that if vaccines do their work, and the world eases out of lockdown, the BP share price could be among the biggest beneficiaries. Just as oil stocks were sunk by last year’s pandemic, they could fly in the recovery. The big worry is that mutant Covid could destroy my upbeat scenario, hitting energy demand (and everything else).Another worry is that BP has high net debt, but at least this is now falling. Today’s figure of $39bn is a lot of money, but is $6.5bn lower than a year ago, helped by $4.2bn of divestments and other disposals in Q4. It may rise as BP funds redundancy for 10,000 staff, but yesterday management said it should still fall towards $35bn this year.Right now, the BP share price comes with a 6.1% yield, covered 1.3 times by earnings. This stock is still a dividend hero, especially with so many FTSE 100 companies cutting their payouts. In the low-interest-rate world, this is not to be sniffed at.The big question is whether BP can return to share price growth. The stock is still down 23% measured over five years, and 44% over the last 12 months. Although it has recovered lately as the crude price climbs, there is still a way to go.Will renewables clean up?I believe the BP share price could be due a rally – provided the post-pandemic recovery remains on track. Today’s entry price looks attractive to me at 12.9 times earnings, which suggests that some of the challenges the company faces are priced in. The great unknown is whether BP will succeed in its energy transition. The idea was that dirty energy would fund the shift into clean. That was until the pandemic hit fossil fuel revenues. Another worry is that we do not know whether renewables will prove that profitable. Clean energy is an exciting, innovative sector, but history suggests that a fast-paced transformation often creates more losers than winners.BP is moving into US offshore wind with Equinor, supplying Amazon with renewable energy, and testing hydrogen and offshore carbon capture. The BP share price carries risks, but the rising oil price and attractive dividend also suggest sufficient rewards to me.

The site is located at the Asian side of Istanbul, between two parallel roads, one being the highway to Istanbul’s second international airport Sabiha Gökçen. The main construction consists of 2 separate blocks with 7 and 9 floors, respective to the site topography. Besides the office and residential floors, the anchor of the building is Pegasus Airlines.Save this picture!Site PlanAbove the Pegasus’ office, which has a direct entrance at the street level, there are office floors of the ESAS. The uppermost floors of the rear building are designed as residential units between 60 to 120 sqm, designed to be rented by airline professionals and long-term visitors. The facing building is let for other offices. Soft curves of each two building, location of spaces and their connection arcs create an elegant flow; the major reason of the form comes from the idea of breaking the strong north-east wind. Positioning of the two building is relative to the movement of the sun, and grant optimum daylight for both masses.Save this picture!© Thomas MayerCurvilinear parallel facades of the two buildings produce a semi-sheltered, 20 meters wide pedestrian link that forms an integral part of the network of neighborhood connections. Small cafés as meeting places, not only for the direct users but also for local people, take place on the passage.Save this picture!Floor PlanBeside balconies and terraces, each of the buildings has high atriums with open roofs that grant natural air and optimum daylight at interiors. At the ground floors, these atriums serve as patios to meet and relax. The roof of Pegasus is designed as a roof garden that is located in front of the communal area of the residential floors, housing gym and the spa. One of the attraction points of the modest complex is the “simulation zone” which is located below ground at the upper elevation; having transparent glass openings on top, the curious passer-bys are welcome to take a look at. Conceptually the building is a permeable and transparent workspace with the choice of visibility and interaction with the existing surroundings.Save this picture!© Murat GermenProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Principals Install Sound Reactive, Silver-Coated “Quilt” at NeuehouseArchitecture NewsArchitect Develops the World’s First HoverboardArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Yenişehir Mh., Osmanlı Bulvarı No:7, 34912 İstanbul/Istanbul, TurkeyLocation to be used only as a reference.

The Charity Commission’s report on its inquiry into the Needy Children International Foundation has underlined the need for “trustees to manage and control fundraising effectively, efficiently and economically”.The charity, which has since been closed, was, according to the Commission, “connected to a number of individuals previously involved in improper fundraising activities”. Only a small proportion of its funds were being spent on charitable activity, so potential donors were being misled about how their money would be spent. The Commission’s inquiry concluded that “trustees had not taken sufficient steps to protect the charity’s funds or its reputation”.In particular it found that they had “not taken appropriate steps to ensure the individuals employed by both the charity and its trading subsidiary were fit and proper persons to take responsibility of the charity’s funds”. The Commission also ruled that trustees had also failed to ensure the trading subsidiary observed its legal requirements when fundraising on behalf of the charity.Although the charity did take some remedial actions including terminating its relationship with the two individuals previously involved in its fundraising operation, and discontinuing its clothing collections, the Commission had also referred its concerns regarding the charity’s fundraising activities to the Insolvency Service. Following the latter’s investigation, the charity was wound up on 23 May 2011.The Commission’s report includes eight issues of wider concern arising from the investigation for the charity sector.www.charitycommission.gov.uk/Our_regulatory_activity/Compliance_reports/inquiry_reports/needy_children.aspx Howard Lake | 12 January 2012 | News Tagged with: Charity Commission Law / policy Charity Commission report underlines need for trustees to control fundraisinglast_img read more

Participants will be able to encourage donations per mile completed, or one-off donations.#TheExtraMileThe UNHCR team have worked with the GivePenny team (who call themselves ‘FUN-Raisers’) to create a central campaign page, together with associated fundraising pages for each participant’s Runkeeper account.Shazia Hassan at UNHCR said: “It’s been an absolute pleasure working with the GivePenny team on #TheExtraMile. Their dedication and passion has really shone through whilst we have been working on getting this challenge set up.”Other campaigns are reportedly already been discussed between the partners.Lee Clark, Chief FUN-Raiser and Idea Ninja at GivePenny, said: “We couldn’t be prouder to be asked to develop #TheExtraMile virtual marathon appeal for UNHCR, the UN refugee agency. In a world where one in 113 people have been forced to flee their homes because of war or persecution, every little act of kindness and support matters.“Building a fun and engaging experience for fundraisers has been at the front of our minds throughout the project…”Clark will be taking part in the challenge.

This has already led to increased human rights abuses, mass detentions, torture, sexual abuse and extrajudicial killings.

first_img By Andy Eubank – Jun 12, 2013 Fritz on June crop reportMarket reaction to the USDA June crop production report was bearish when the numbers were released in the middle of the day Wednesday, but some analysts say the bearish feel shouldn’t last long. Analyst Tom Fritz at EFG Group in Chicago said the bearish tone for corn was set when the trade saw the final carryout projections.“USDA thinks that the new crop carryout will be 1.949 billion bushels,” Fritz said. “That’s down roughly 55 million bushels from their previous estimate, but more importantly the trade was looking for a number of 1.758, so based on trade expectations we’re 190 million bushels greater than what the trade was looking for. That’s why you saw the bearish reaction.”Further breakdown showed no change in planted and harvested acres and corn yield was lowered one and a half bushels.As for actual corn demand numbers, “they lowered feed use by 125 million bushels and raised ethanol usage by 50 million bushels. Exports they left at unchanged. So the bottom line is, based on these numbers, you’ve got a big corn crop coming at you. But we also know we have the variables; prevent plant, washed out acres, all the way down the line.”USDA left U.S. ending soybean stocks unchanged from the May estimate and soybean yield was unchanged.“The bottom line for both cases is bull spreads in corn should continue to work, bull spreads in beans should continue to work. In other words the old crop scenario remains extremely tight so your bull spreads are going to continue to work.”Get more analysis in the HAT Wednesday Midday Edition and Jim Riley market review, both at www.hoosieragtoday.com and the smart phone and tablet app for Apple and Android.
