The news follows an £82m contract agreed with the Foreign & Commonwealth Office in September.CWW will now provide voice services including online video and audio communication across all of DFID’s 44 sites.Jim Marsh, chief executive of Cable&Wireless Worldwide, said: “I am delighted to announce another important customer win in our public sector business and the second contract on our global telecoms framework. “By utilising the one network, both DFID and the Foreign & Commonwealth Office stand to benefit from greater collaboration and increased efficiencies, all of which supports the government’s broader Public Sector Network strategy.” CWW has said its trading has been hit hard by the government spending squeeze. About £285m, or 12 per cent of CWW’s revenue, came from UK public sector customers last year. Tags: NULL whatsapplast_img read more

Will the HSBC share price bounce back as restructuring begins?

first_img Image source: Getty Images. Will the HSBC share price bounce back as restructuring begins? 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. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Karl has shares in HSBC Holdings. The Motley Fool UK has recommended HSBC Holdings. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Until fairly recently, I was pretty bullish on the HSBC (LSE: HSBA) share price. The company had a restructuring plan in place that I thought would be of long-term benefit to shareholders. It was going to cut costs and move resources to its more profitable Asian businesses. Then coronavirus happened.Three months ago, the bank announced it would be pausing its planned head count reduction. A sound political and PR move given concerns surrounding lockdown and Covid-19, but not necessarily a business one. Investors were not happy, and the HSBC share price told the story.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…Write-downs and recessionsThe other big hit HSBC’s share price took was due to the bank increasing its loan provisions to $3bn. Effectively it was saying a recession may come, and if it does, more people and businesses will not be paying back the money we lent them.This uncertainty is also my main concern. The provisions themselves are just that – provisions. They are not yet actually losses. Any coming recession due to lockdown – which is perfectly possible, if not likely – will no doubt take its toll. It is the uncertainty surrounding a recession that makes me concerned. Banks and financial stocks always get hit when the economy turn sour.Even considering this though, I am starting to think the HSBC share price is looking cheap again. As it currently stands, it is at its lowest levels since 2009. It has halved since the start of 2018 and is down about a third since January this year. Given that at its worst during the credit crunch it was about the same levels as it is today, I think it may just be a bargain.This is, however, with one caveat. Fear. Prices are driven by expectations, and they are driven by greed and fear. Unfortunately for the sensible investor, a price can be driven far below its true value for no fundamental reason. What happens to the HSBC share price this year, I think, will be driven more by investor confidence.Restructuring back onAs a longer-term investor, however, these kind of knee-jerk reactions fade away. Fundamentals begin to take hold, and I think fundamentally, HSBC has a lot going for it.With the planned cost cutting efforts back on, everything that made me bullish before is coming to the fore again. Reducing its head count has long been a necessary evil for the bank.Even more importantly, instituting a plan of closing down less profitable centres, such as the US, and focusing resources on its Asian businesses, I think is a good move. Though there is always a risk of “too many eggs in one basket”, I think the benefit of focusing capital where it can make the most money will pay off.I think the HSBC share price may see some downside this year, or it may not. In the long run however, I am still thinking it will be a decent investment. I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Debate: Is it time to rethink Ireland’s backrow?

first_imgOther players fighting for recognition include Leinster’s Rhys Ruddock and Dominic Ryan and Munster are well stocked with the aforementioned Sean Dougall, Dave O’Callaghan and Paddy Butler.The talent is there for all to see but which of these players will step up? I for one, will be fascinated to see the jigsaw falling into place. TAKAPUNA, NEW ZEALAND – JUNE 05: Chris Henry of Ireland runs the ball during the Ireland team training session at Onewa Domain on June 5, 2012 in Takapuna, New Zealand. (Photo by Sandra Mu/Getty Images) Out of position?: Sean O’Brien is a brilliant blindside, is it time to blood a natural ‘fetcher’ on Ireland’s openside?By Garry IrwinIN 21st century Test rugby, superstars play at No 7. Richie McCaw, David Pocock and Sam Warburton have all been heralded, with Michael Hooper, after his performance against England, set to be added to the list. The question most Ireland fans are asking themselves is whether they have enough depth in their back row and where the next superstar is coming from.On paper, Ireland’s best back row is Stephen Ferris at blindside flanker, Sean O’Brien at openside and Jamie Heaslip at No 8. However, it has often been argued that Sean O’Brien shouldn’t be playing at openside because he isn’t a ‘fetcher’ – O’Brien more of a wrecking ball who loves ball in hand and relishes skittling over the opposition.At 25 Sean O’Brien has already reached great peaks – being recognised by his contemporaries as a standout talent in 2011, with his stellar performances earning him the ‘ERC European Player of the Year’ whilst playing at blindside flanker for Leinster. However, since then he has lost his way a little and has been defensively targeted whilst playing for Ireland at No 7 thereby nullifying his threat to the annoyance of Ireland fans with their new weapon decommissioned during matches.Worthy of his chance: Chris HenryThe question I’d raise is, should the Sean O’Brien experiment be continued? Should Ireland try and embrace a natural fetcher by blooding players like Chris Henry more often, as they did against South Africa, or even utilize Shane Jennings again or look at the young Ireland ‘loosies’ coming through? The hard-nosed Leinster backrow has forged a formidable reputation but at 31, surely he can’t be used as Ireland’s stand-in at No 7. Ireland need to embrace a new batch of flankers – with Chris Henry being blooded against South Africa at openside, there’s the opportunity for him to grow at Test level.Ulster are unbeaten this term and Chris has been one of the players spearheading the Ulster revival with his dogged attitude. At 28, with three caps to his name, Chris has plenty of life in him yet. However, much younger men need to nurtured and drafted in to the elite squad in time for England 2015. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS One of opensides coming through is Scottish born Munster flanker Sean Dougall. Dougall’s has had an eye-catching start to his first season with Munster, impressing various pundits and fans in recent weeks, which begs the question, should Sean be thrown into the senior squad mix or developed slowly with the Wolfhounds?Bright future: O’Mahony is well-regardedOn the other side of scrum, at blindside, with Stephen Ferris’s injuries, a variety of players are getting a look in for the position. The most notable is young Ulster tyro Iain Henderson who has been grabbing headlines ever since his impressive performance for Ireland at the Junior World Championship that saw the U20 side beat the Baby Boks. Although Iain played at lock during the Championship he still managed to put in some mature performances and didn’t let anyone down against Fiji last weekend.Peter O’Mahony is another option throughout the backrow with the Munster man having played at both blindside and No 8 for Ireland. O’Mahony came through the Irish youth ranks, notably captaining the Ireland U18 and U20 sides and many are predicting a big future. At 23, O’Mahony has already became a go-to figure for Munster with the likes of Paul O’Connell and Ronan O’Gara spending less and less time on the pitch. Peter will surely get more valuable experience under his belt during the Autumn Internationals.last_img read more

Rev. M. Thomas Shaw, SSJE Jan. 15 announced his call for the election of a bishop coadjutor to succeed him upon his retirement. The proposed date for the electing convention is April 5, 2014.“I love being your bishop and it is an honor to serve you,” Shaw said in a letter announcing his decision, sent Jan. 15 to diocesan clergy and leadership. “These years have been some of the richest years of my life. All of you and this work have taught me much about myself and the nature of our loving God for which I will always be grateful. I am full of gratitude for all that God has given us to do: the challenges God has offered us, the opportunities and all the experiences of God’s abundance which we have experienced in our life together.”Oversight of the election process is the responsibility of the diocesan Standing Committee, with the leadership of its president, the Rev. Zenetta Armstrong, rector of the Church of the Holy Spirit in Mattapan, and its vice president, David Bergquist of Christ Church in South Hamilton.The Standing Committee will meet on Feb. 11 with the Rt. Rev. Clay Matthews, the Episcopal Church’s bishop for pastoral development, to begin its work, which will include appointing nominating and transition committees.It is anticipated that the consecration of the new bishop will take place in the fall of 2014.Following that, Shaw and the new bishop will work together for a period of time before Shaw’s retirement, the date of which is still to be determined.In his letter, Shaw outlined his priorities for the ongoing work of the diocese in the meantime. Those include implementing the mission projects funded by the diocese’s nearly complete $20-million Together Now fundraising campaign. “I also am committed to the work of our newly established task force on nonviolence in memory of Jorge Fuentes, our research initiative on church growth and continuing in teaching and outreach through our communications media—all of this in addition to the ongoing work of the diocese. I am full of energy and enthusiasm to do this work with you,” he said. “As always I ask for your prayers and I assure you of mine as we begin this new chapter together.”Shaw, who will be 68 in August 2013, was consecrated a bishop on Sept. 24, 1994, and became the 15th bishop of Massachusetts on Jan. 15, 1995. He is a life-professed member of the Society of St. John the Evangelist, a religious order of priests and lay brothers in the Episcopal Church.Established in 1784 and comprising 185 congregations across the eastern third of the state, the Diocese of Massachusetts is among the Episcopal Church’s oldest and largest, in terms of membership. In addition to Shaw, the Diocese of Massachusetts is served by a bishop suffragan (an assisting bishop), the Rt. Rev. Gayle Elizabeth Harris.

This incorporation of diverse environments into an unique, fully integrated, highly functional and welcoming living space invites entry, reception and interaction between the inhabitants and their visitors.Save this picture!© Ronaldo RizzuttiDue to the restrictions on land use, such as the delimitation of space by the obligatory minimum setbacks, on the sides and at the back, floor-to-ceiling glass frames were used on virtually the entire perimeter of the floor. When fully opened, they hide in the walls, fully integrating the entire environment and bringing fluidity, which ensures adequate insolation and constant cross ventilation, characteristic of the project. They also promote a sense of spaciousness and total occupation of the land, where the boundaries of the residence are that of the plot. There is no distinction between interior and exterior: the glass walls make the limits disappear, unnoticed, allowing full visual communication and abundant natural lighting. When needed, the use of curtains ensures residents’ privacy.One of the residence’s implantation characteristic is also due to the existence of a green and accessible corridor for pedestrian crossing, on the right side of the lot. Despite the impossibility of direct opening the house to that space, which allowed, therefore, greater privacy, the existence of this “emptiness” provided a better exploration of this facade, in continuity with the front one.Brise soleil has a contemporary use and is a trademark of the architecture, as well as ensuring more adequate protection against intense insolation. With its many independent openings, it modifies the house continuously, which breathes and renews itself along with its residents, as it’s used, opened and closed randomly.Save this picture!© Ronaldo RizzuttiSave this picture!3dSave this picture!© Jefferson FabrícioAs all the rooms dialogue with each other, materials that communicate harmoniously and bring comfort and warmth to the residents were used: concrete, predominant on the ground floor; wood and its textures, in the entrance, brises, stairs and flooring of the intimate space; and the wide use of glass, which delimits and, simultaneously, provides visual permeability.Save this picture!© Ronaldo RizzuttiIn the intimate area, located on the upper floor, the master suite shower room reinforces the refinement of finishes and elegance required in the project.
