BP share price: here’s what I think the future holds Enter Your Email Address Karl Loomes | Monday, 29th June, 2020 | More on: BP Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” It’s been a tough few months for BP (LSE: BP). Oversupply in the oil market was exacerbated when coronavirus hit. Crude prices plummeted, and as it stands, the market is still unsure what the post-lockdown world will look like.That’s why, this month, the company was forced to write down about $17.5bn from its oil and gas assets. Specifically, it reduced its outlook on crude oil prices in the wake of coronavirus. Despite this, however, the BP share price has managed to hold on fairly well.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…Job cuts, debt and dividendsThe week before its asset write-down, BP announced it would be cutting 10,000 jobs – about 15% of its workforce – by the end of this year. Most of this number will come from office-based staff, “protecting the front line of the company”.The share price was actually higher on this news for a few days. Cost-cutting efforts being seen by investors as a sensible move. Interestingly too, BP is still maintaining its dividend.Personally I agree with my fellow Fool Edward Sheldon, I expect at some point in the future BP will be forced to cut its dividend. It’s hard to justify cutting staff while maintaining investor payouts.I suspect BP is simply waiting for a more opportune time. In a fearful market, it makes sense to not give investors any extra reasons to go running for the door. I suspect when things calm down towards the latter half of 2020, it will be reviewing its payout.Interestingly, just days after the asset write-down, BP announced it would be raising $12bn through the issuance of hybrid bonds. The main aim of this is to strengthen BP’s balance sheet — the firm having some of the highest levels of debt in the industry.BP oil or BP green energy?With concern for the environment being stronger than ever, oil majors having been making greater efforts to go green. On the image front, oil companies need to be seen as trying to move towards greener energy.From a practical perspective, if oil runs out or becomes too expensive to extract, renewable energy sources could be a massive profit maker. Companies like BP and Royal Dutch Shell have known the writing was on the wall for a while.Accordingly, both companies have been making greater efforts in the green market. This kind of adaptability has been a selling point for me as an investor. With this latest asset write-down, BP has suggested the expected fall in demand for oil will bring these efforts forward.I think that with its cost-cutting efforts, investments in a greener economy and an understanding investor base if its reduces tis dividend, the BP share price may be able to see better times ahead.

The garden traditionally functioned as an incubator of natural matter and nurtured the ‘informal’ part of the domestic life.Save this picture!© Creative Photo Room, Maria EfthymiouSave this picture!© Creative Photo Room, Maria EfthymiouHistorical references from foreign travelers to Nicosia from the 14th Century, describe the garden as a space that is surrounded by a high wall and which contains a plethora of ornamental as well as productive plants. It is described as an important part of the domestic life offering pleasant smells and noises, while at the same time it forms the historical urban identity of the city. Save this picture!© Creative Photo Room, Maria EfthymiouSave this picture!© Creative Photo Room, Maria EfthymiouFor this project, the enclosed garden becomes part of the domestic life, and in close relevance to the daily domestic routine. A 16 by 16 by 5 metres box includes the necessary living spaces for the daily routine. At the same time, the box also includes fragments of nature, in the form of four small gardens, which are considered equally important as a divergence from the daily routine of the family. The 4 enclosed gardens also help as incubators for growing up species and testing them in local climate before relocating them in the exterior field that surrounds the house.

About the Fundraising Code of PracticeThe Fundraising Code of Practice was originally developed over a number of years by the Institute of Fundraising, with voluntary input from many of its members. It was transferred to the Fundraising Regulator when it took over its regulatory role in July 2016. Its predecessor the Fundraising Standards Board did not have responsibility for the Code.The Code began life as a series of individual codes covering different methods of fundraising, with new ones being added regularly, such as a code for outdoor fundraising events (2004), workplace giving (2004), and major donor fundraising (2005) with each of them being periodically revised. In 2012 these were consolidated into a single code. The Fundraising Regulator announced a consultation on changes to the Code of Fundraising Practice in February 2017.Questions answered[Edited on 9 March 2017] NCVO has compiled the questions asked of the Fundraising Regulator and secured follow-up answers from Gerald Oppenheim and Stephen Service.

Indiana’s Family of Farmers, The Indiana Department of Agriculture, representatives from various commodity groups, state officials and other dignitaries were on hand Thursday to celebrate National Ag Day at the McDonald’s restaurant located at 7000 N. Graham Road in Indianapolis.The event was hosted by local McDonald’s Owner/Operators Mya Smith and Randy Shields and included the unveiling of a new trayliner that lists the Indiana products that are purchased by the McDonald’s system. That trayliner will be used in most McDonald’s restaurants throughout the state.The McDonald’s system purchased $33 million worth of Indiana products in 2017 including more than 162 million pounds of corn, 45,000 dozen eggs, 3.9 million pounds of pork and 4.9 million gallons of milk. McDonald’s also employs more than 21,000 people at its 354 restaurants across the state of Indiana.“National Ag Day is a perfect time to show off this trayliner which gives everyone a great look at how every day Indiana farmers help us bring high-quality food to our customers,” said Shields.Bruce Kettler, director of the Indiana State Department of Agriculture, thanked McDonald’s for its ongoing support of farmers.“Indiana has more than 56,000 farming operations that, together, help make up a $31 billion industry,” Kettler said. “I commend McDonald’s efforts to support our farmers, as well as the significant investment they’re making in the lives of Hoosiers and communities across the state.”“Indiana farmers are proud to produce almost a billion dozen eggs every year,” said Dan Krouse, President of the Indiana State Poultry Association. “Those nutritional little powerhouses go into breakfasts all over the world, and many are cracked fresh onto griddles at McDonald’s every morning. We’re thankful for the appreciation today, and hope everyone keeps enjoying our eggs.”“As we continue on a journey to build a better McDonald’s, we continue to ensure that we are providing high-quality, great tasting ingredients that are sourced responsibly,” said Shields. “It’s all about listening to our customers and working with our wonderful suppliers, like here in Indiana, so we may continue to ensure our customers feel good about our food.” Home Indiana Agriculture News Indiana’s Family of Farmers Celebrate National Ag Day with McDonald’s Indiana’s Family of Farmers Celebrate National Ag Day with McDonald’s SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter Previous articleEthanol Groups Condemn New Small Refinery WaiversNext articleCrop Insurance Deadline Arrives Amid Widespread Confusion Hoosier Ag Today By Hoosier Ag Today – Mar 14, 2019
Receive email alerts Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 January 3, 2018 In crackdown on protests, Iranian regime targets freedom to inform News Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the Iranian regime’s arrests of around ten citizen-journalists in the past few days and the restrictions it has imposed on access to social networks an attempt to censor information about a wave of protests throughout the country. Follow the news on Iran June 11, 2021 Find out more Some 60 cities throughout Iran have now been affected by the anti-government protests, in which around 1,000 people have been arrested since they began six days ago, according to various Iranian sources.Although President Hassan Rouhani promised more freedom during his election campaign, the authorities have been carrying out targeted raids and arrests in order to identify and neutralize dissident networks and to intimidate journalists.Four citizen-journalists who work for the Majzooban Nor website – Mohammad Sharifi Moghadam, Mohammad Reza Sharifi, Faezeh Abdipour and Kasra Nouri – were the subject of heavy-handed arrests by intelligence ministry agents on 31 December and were taken to Tehran’s Evin prison. Nouri previously served a three-year jail sentence from 2012 to 2015.In all, around ten citizen-journalists have been arrested, according to the information gathered by RSF. Some of these arrests were filmed by persons who were themselves then arrested, as seen in a video posted on journalist and human right activist Masih Alinejad’s Facebook page.It was partly to prevent this kind of video footage from circulating on social networks that Internet access was partially or totally disconnected on the night of 31 December. The authorities also blocked access to Instagram and the instant messaging app Telegram. Telecommunications minister Mohammad-Javad Azari Jahormi accused Telegram, which has 40 million users in Iran, of encouraging an “armed uprising.”Telegram founder Pavel Durov pointed out on Twitter that, on 30 December, Telegram had itself shut down one if its channels, Amadnews, which was showing its subscribers how to use Molotov cocktails against the police. According to Durov, the Iranian authorities nonetheless began blocking access to the entire app the next day because it had refused to shut all opposition channels that use Telegram, including those calling for peaceful protests.Durov noted in a tweet yesterday that, while Telegram and Signal are still being blocked by the Iranian authorities, WhatsApp continues to be accessible. Facebook and Twitter have been inaccessible in Iran since 2009.RSF condemns this latest crackdown on the freedom to inform in Iran and calls on Asma Jahangir, the UN special rapporteur for human rights in Iran, and David Kaye, the UN special rapporteur on the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of opinion and expression, to intercede quickly to protect Iranians’ fundamental rights.The Iranian government must adhere to the undertakings it has given to respect international standards, including those established by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the UN agency responsible for information and communication technologies.The Islamic Republic of Iran has been on RSF’s list of “Enemies of the Internet” for the past 15 years. The regime fears the circulation of freely and independently reported news and information, which it regards as attempted “subversion.”As the traditional media are censored and controlled, it is citizen-journalists active on social networks who play a key role in political change in Iran. But trying to thwart the regime’s determination to maintain a blackout on news and information is not without risk. RSF is aware of at least 94 arrests of Internet users in 2017, including Telegram users. Around 20 are currently detained.At the same time, the regime has not abandoned the idea of establishing a “Halal Internet” – a national online information network – and is already using “intelligent filtering” to restrict and control access to the Internet, especially to social networks.The authorities recently violated the principle of net neutrality by introducing different connection charges for the national and international Internets. Access to the international Internet now costs more than access to the censored and monitored national (or “Halal”) Internet.Iran is ranked 165th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.

A meeting of Limerick County Council was told that fumes from waste in Askeaton was backing up into homes and businesses as air vents have been removed in anticipation of a new sewerage system for the town.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “How can we charge people rates who are forced to leave their property due to the terrible smell of sewerage?”, Cllr Kevin Sheahan put to the meeting.He told the Limerick Post that when a new sewerage system was sanctioned, the three air vents in the town, which disperse the odour, were removed.“We were told the funding was there for a new scheme and I would have bet my house that we would be getting it; Now I’d bet my house that it won’t be.“I have been getting complaints galore about the smell which is lingering in the town.“What happening now is that the system can’t handle the amount of sewerage being produced, so there is raw sewerage floating in the River Deel.“Meanwhile, people are being asked to pay rates and household charges while coping with this smell.“I know at least one business that had to close due to it; It’s not healthy and not acceptable”.Cllr Sheahan asked that the county council treat the situation with the same urgency that was given to the recent spillage in the River Deel.“As we no longer have a guarantee from the department that we will get a new system air vents should be put back in.“It is backwards we are going instead of forwards”.
