Direct Line Insurance (LSE: DLG) shares are up about 15% in the past year, so do I think this rise can continue? OK,  insurance businesses aren’t like fast-growing US technology stocks. But their potential stable dividend income and long-term stock appreciation is appealing. So would I buy?Why I might consider buying Direct Line sharesDirect Line’s recent financial results have been good in a challenging period. For 2020, its gross written premium figure was down only marginally (by 0.7%) year-on-year to £3.2bn. And the combined operating ratio (COR) improved to 91% in the year 2020 from 92.2% in the previous year. This is one of the important metrics when assessing an insurance stock. The COR is the sum of claims, expenses and commission ratios. A COR of less than 100% indicates profitable underwriting. And Direct Line has hit this target in the past five years. 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…The company has also resumed its dividend, which is another reason why I like the stock. For the 2020 financial year, it paid an interim dividend of 7.4p, plus a special dividend of 14.4p to compensate for the cancelled 2019 final payout. The company is also paying the final dividend of 14.7p for 2020 today. At the current share price, the dividend yield is about 7.5%, which is very attractive. However, I understand that there’s no guarantee the company will continue to pay future dividends. Yet I hope it will. It has a stable balance sheet, a solvency capital ratio of 191% and has maintained a capital surplus above the regulatory capital requirement. The net cash generated from the operating activities improved to £584.7m for the year 2020 from £462.1m for 2019. I like companies with good operating cash flows as I consider them to be a safer bet during any economic downturns.The downsidesThe insurance sector is very competitive. This is one reason why I get nervous when judging insurance stocks. Online premium comparison sites have made matters worse for insurance companies’ profits. Also, businesses like Direct Line are being advised by the Financial Conduct Authority that they must not charge their existing clients more than new ones for insurance policies. This, in my opinion, could put a dent in its profits. And the lockdown has reduced the number of new vehicles registered. People have reduced their travel and this will have a negative impact on the motor insurance business. This impact could be seen in DLG’s most recent trading update. The motor insurance segment’s gross written premium fell by 11% year-on-year to £367.3m. ConclusionYet the company is fundamentally strong. It’s trading at a price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) of 11.5, lower than its five-year average of 12.1. So, I feel the shares are not trading at a significant enough discount to their historical average for me. I’ll keep the stock on my watch list, but I’m not a buyer today. I prefer another insurance stock, Aviva, that’s trading at a lower P/E ratio than Direct Line shares. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

However, in recent years many residences with high walls have been built facing on to the road and the residences and the town are detached from each other and have become closed off. The existing residence for which work was planned this time was surrounded by high walls in the same way and furthermore, it was necessary to backspace the south of the grounds by widening the front road as a legal requirement.Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraFirst of all, the structure was reduced to a skeleton then it was all updated to current earthquake-resistant standards by reinforcing the foundations and reinforcing weak earthquake resistance. While doing this, a sash was inserted after backspacing the existing exterior wall on the boundary facing the south road on the 1st floor by 910mm. The backspaced area was covered with wood decking and while this ensured an expansion of garden space, the interior and exterior boundaries were distanced from the road. The wood decking area is called ENGAWA and was determined as an interim area that connects the garden with the interior space. ENGAWA is an exterior location enveloped in calm due to the existing oblique exterior wall.Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraIt has been made possible to convert the interior and exterior portions by installing an external blind in the original wall portion. Through these kinds of multi-layered relationships, even though the distance between the road and the building is now closer, the height of the line of sight can be controlled by the backspaced wall and the small garden has been transformed into a new space that connects the residence with the town.Save this picture!Floor PlansThe interior is a space in which you can experience the connection with the outside as is. A round atrium has been installed in the centre of the house in order to create a sense of unity between the upper and lower floors. (The pronunciation for ‘round’ in Japanese is also ‘en’.) This gently cuts an arc for various lifestyle scenarios and creates new landscapes.Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraBeyond the small 2nd floor window that faces the atrium are the bedrooms and it is possible to make yourself heard in them from the 1st floor.Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraThe large fixed fittings window in the gallery depicts the look of the sky on one side from the 1st floor kitchen past the atrium and when you ascend to the 2nd floor, the forest bursts in from beyond the town.

Auraiya, District Auraiya.The A.G.A. appearing for the State, vehemently opposed the application for anticipatory bail.While observing that no case for the grant of Anticipatory Bail to the Applicant (Sameer Khan) is made out, the Single Bench of Justice Rajeev Misra stated,”Perusal of F.I.R. shows that the crime alleged to have been committed by the present applicant is an economic offence, which can disrupt the economy of the country. Therefore, the crime alleged to have been committed by the present applicant along with other co-accused is a crime against society.” (emphasis supplied)In view of the aforesaid, the Court rejected the application for Anticipatory Bail of the Applicant.It may be noted that in the year 2019, the Calcutta High Court in the context of S. 489B of IPC, had ruled that possession of large quantity counterfeit currency in concealed manner is active transportation amounting to trafficking.Also, in the year 2018, the bench comprising Justice Ranjit More and Justice Bharati H Dangre of Bombay High Court had observed that mere use of any forged or counterfeit currency notes or bank notes cannot attract the provisions of Section 489(B), when mens rea is conspicuously absent.The Bombay HC had quashed the criminal prosecution against a woman from whom some counterfeit currency notes were found in the cash she had brought for depositing in the bank after demonetisation. “When mens rea is conspicuously absent, mere use of any forged or counterfeit currency notes or bank notes cannot attract the provisions of Section 489(B). The essential ingredient of the said offence being that the person, who receives the notes has reason to believe that the said notes are forged or counterfeit”, the Court had noted.

Chicago could receive latest snowfall in 30 years

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — The storm system that brought severe thunderstorms in the Mid-Atlantic and large hail in New England on Friday has moved out of the picture for the weekend.However, a complex storm system developing in the High Plains brought strong winds and hail to parts of Colorado, Wyoming, Nebraska and Kansas on Friday, and part of it is moving east.The storm system is quickly moving into the Midwest, where heavy rain was already falling in parts of Nebraska and Iowa Saturday morning. Some of this moisture will interact with just enough cold air to bring snow across parts of the Midwest and through the Great Lakes this weekend.Winter weather advisories and winter storm warnings are in effect from eastern South Dakota to western Michigan, including Milwaukee and Chicago. Some of the alerts will likely expand eastward during the day on Saturday.Rain will begin to change to snow later in the morning in parts of South Dakota and southwest Minnesota. As the storm quickly moves eastward, snow will likely fall across Iowa, and along the border of Wisconsin and Illinois — with bands of snow likely reaching Milwaukee and Chicago.The rain will transition to snow in Milwaukee and Chicago during the midday hours and last into the evening. Snowfall rates during this time period will reach 1 to 2 inches per hour, with gusty winds of 35 to 40 mph.The storm will quickly move into parts of the Great Lakes overnight, while a weakening band of snow is possible in parts of New York state early Sunday. Precipitation will change to rain across much of the Northeast during the day on Sunday before the storm heads out to sea late Sunday night.Locally, over 6 inches of snow are possible along the Illinois and Wisconsin border. Additionally, there could be some locally enhanced snow in parts of southern Michigan and western New York.There are a couple of factors that could hold accumulations on the lower end. There will likely be a sharp cutoff between heavy snow and no snow, and because of marginal temperatures, the snow will be very wet. Additionally, the sun angle in late April is quite strong, and that will hamper some accumulation.For some perspective, the latest accumulation of 1 inch of snow in Chicago was May 1, 1940. The latest total of 3 inches of snow in Chicago was April 23, 1967. And the last time there was any measurable snow in Chicago this late into spring was May 6, 1989 — nearly 30 years ago.Wind could become an issue on the southern side of the storm across parts of the Tennessee and Ohio valleys Saturday and Sunday morning with localized gusts over 30 mph possible.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Harvey Weinstein’s ex-lawyer loses position at Harvard despite bowing out of case

first_imgiStock/travelview(BOSTON) — In response to an uproar on campus, Harvard University decided this weekend to remove law professor Ron Sullivan from a dean’s post after Sullivan had signed on as a member of the team defending disgraced movie producer Harvey Weinstein. Ironically, Harvard’s decision comes just a day after Sullivan told the Manhattan judge overseeing Weinstein’s case that Sullivan would, in fact, be leaving the defense team.Sullivan’s notice to the court is due to be made public Monday.The lawyer and his wife, Stephanie Robinson, who also works at the school, will not be renewed as deans at Harvard’s Winthrop House once their terms expire next month.Sullivan’s decision has no impact on Jose Baez, the noted criminal lawyer now leading Weinstein’s defense, or the rest of the team. Sullivan is a noted expert on criminal law and criminal procedure and is director of the Harvard Criminal Justice Institute.Weinstein spokesman Juda Engelmayer told ABC News Saturday evening that Weinstein “is extremely grateful to Ronald Sullivan for his work with him until now, and for Ron’s offer to advise where he can going forward.”“Mr. Sullivan believed that Mr. Weinstein deserved a vigorous defense, and it is a sad moment for us all right now,” Engelmayer said. “We, as a country, have now reached the point when a Harvard lawyer and professor cannot serve his duty to, and belief in, the law and defend a person who may be deemed unpopular or unworthy of a legal defense by segments of the public.”The Harvard Crimson, the college’s newspaper, was the first to report on Sullivan’s exit.The Harvard Black Law Students Association supported Sullivan’s decision to represent Weinstein, saying in a statement released March 31, “HBLSA finds it important that we speak to the controversy and make the ask of Harvard University to both unequivocally support survivors of sexual violence and to do so in a way that does not scapegoat Professor Sullivan for the University’s failings to address sexual violence on campus.”Weinstein is due to go on trial in September on charges of rape and sexual assault. He was arrested nearly a year ago and is out on bail.He is set to go on trial on accusations made by two women in New York, but has been accused of improper conduct by dozens of other women over decades.Weinstein, 66, has been investigated by the New York City Police Department, the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, the New York Attorney General’s Office, the Los Angeles Police Department and U.K. authorities.He has denied all allegations of nonconsensual sex.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Work-life balance is key issue

first_imgEmployers will lose key staff if they fail to realise the significance ofgood work-life balance, according to research by Roffey Park ManagementInstitute.The study found that middle and senior managers now regard having anadequate amount of time to spend on their home lives and interests as a mark oftheir achievement.Report author Caroline Glynn said, “Today’s managers measure theircareer success by the amount of time they have available for family, friends,hobbies, leisure activities, studies or voluntary work. “So-called family-friendly policies rarely help to resolve this issue.There is a stigma attached to them which needs to be removed so employees cantake them up without fear of jeopardising their careers.”The long-hours work culture has made spare time a valued commodity formanagers, the study argues, and most managers say their employers currentlydemand more time than they are prepared to give.
