It’s not a good time for NS&I. MPs have asked the organisation, which runs Premium Bonds, to account for poor service levels. The chances of winning big money were also slashed last year, denting the bonds’ appeal. In my opinion, buying Premium Bonds is just gambling. On the other hand, investing in growth shares is a decent way to build wealth.That’s why I’m on the lookout right now for shares that have major growth prospects in 2021.5G 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…A top growth share for 2021D4T4 (LSE: D4T4) is involved in the increasingly important and growing field of data. It’s involved in commercially important activities such as collecting, managing and extracting value from that data. As the world goes digital, demand for services like these will only increase.Against this backdrop, I think D4T4 looks cheap on a trailing P/E of 26. That’s significantly higher than just a few months ago but I think the share price could rise much further. It’s also significantly below other tech companies.I like D4T4 because of its strong finances. Gross profit margins have been growing and most recently stood at over 60%. The group has no debt and is not a flash in the pan, fad-type business. It’s a serious business poised to generate, in my opinion, substantial returns for shareholders.D4T4’s five-year return on capital employed is 18% – an indicator that the company can grow profitably. It’s a very important metric in my view.All in all, I think it’s a hidden gem with huge share price growth potential. It could well enter my own portfolio in the coming months.A lowly-rated miner with growth prospectsSylvania Platinum (LSE: SLP) is another share with a bright future. It’s a low-cost producer of platinum group metals (PGMs), which are platinum, palladium, and rhodium. It mines in South Africa, where the world’s greatest source of PGMs is located.It benefits from strong metal price trends and limited competition. Sylvania Platinum will also benefit from the speeding up of the transition to cleaner, more energy-efficient vehicles.It’s another group that’s debt free – which is impressive for a miner – meaning improvement to the top line will trickle down into greater returns for shareholders. This is especially so as the miner has been able to cut costs recently. I expect the share price could do very well in 2021. Especially as the shares are cheap on a P/E of just eight.Lloyds: set for recovery from a disastrous 2020?If you prefer a Covid recovery stock then I’d suggest Lloyds Banking Group. 2020 was a year to forget for investors in bank shares. Nonetheless, even in a very low-interest-rate world, and even with the threat of negative interest rates looming, I think Lloyds should bounce back. I hold a small amount because the shares have such a low valuation. I think the share price falls and fears over the future of banks are overdone.I expect all of these growth shares to have a strong 2021, but my top pick of the group is D4T4. 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.

Sin embargo, el proceso de consentimiento canónico se espera que comience en septiembre por el candidato elegido el 18 de agosto en la Diócesis de Lexington.Resumen del procesoTras la elección, el candidato elegido es un obispo electo. Después de algunas cuestiones de procedimiento, incluidos los exámenes, se envían las notificaciones oficiales a los obispos con jurisdicción (solamente a obispos diocesanos) con avisos separados a las comisiones permanentes de cada una de las diócesis de la Iglesia Episcopal. Estos avisos requieren sus propias medidas y firmas.Para que un obispo electo pueda convertirse en obispo, en virtud del canon III.11.4, 6 de la Iglesia Episcopal, la mayoría de los obispos con jurisdicción y la mayoría de los comités permanentes diocesanos deben dar su consentimiento a la ordenación del obispo electo como obispo dentro de 120 días de haber recibido el aviso de la elección. Estos pasos se dan por separado.Una vez que el Obispo/a Presidente recibe los consentimientos necesarios, deberá “sin demora” notificar a la diócesis que ha elegido y al obispo electo, sin esperar a la expiración del plazo de 120 días, y “deberá”, tras la aceptación de la elección por el obispo elegido, “tomar medidas para la ordenación”.Sin embargo, si la mayoría de los obispos diocesanos no da su consentimiento, y/o la mayoría de las comisiones permanentes no da su consentimiento, el Obispo/a Presidente, en conformidad con el Canon III.11.5, está obligado a declarar la nulidad e invalidez de la elección. En esos casos, una persona elegida por la diócesis no será ordenada.

In general it is difficult to find a client who shares the same ideas that we as professionals on a project. Nor is commonplace that a customer is willing to invest in each and every one of the details that are necessarily involved in a work to achieve effectively carry out those ideas on the project. Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteWe commissioned a house for a childless couple, on a ground in Villa Belgrano, a suburb of a large urban grain, a street whose spatial unit arises of the leafy stems and further characterized by large withdrawals, a ground between medianeras of 17 meters in front on the south by 60 meters deep in the north. Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteThey offer two volumes: the bedrooms of one plant, lying on the dividing wall east and the living room with double height crossed a little before half of the lot. A third volume, supported on the dividing wall north, configures the courtyard containing the pool. In this way the relationship is prioritized indoor / outdoor, with many perspective views, sunlight and expansions for social uses internal outward. Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteThe main requirement was to make the area for use intimate and social of the couple remains separated from the street and to give autonomy from the sleeping areas of future children. Along with this, find that every room in the house have contact with the courtyard. An attempt was made to that unit – living, dining, kitchen, studio and suite – be qualified by their relationship with the outside. Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteIt sought to recover the natural modes of environmental comfort, providing a basking suitable for all the rooms; cross ventilation in the main areas, natural light and ventilation all over the surface protective devices as eaves and filters. All this, in spite of having an artificial climate control system. Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteIt was tried a very austere architecture in relation to forms and materials, stripped of any romance and fashion. The use of a cast of noble materials, most of them used in sight, with a very low maintenance, with high resistance in relation to the intensity of uses. Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteIt was thought at the architectural space understood as the space and man. With the use we try to characterize the different spaces so as to meet the needs for which are intended andat the same time, generate a proactive atmosphere with people and activities. Mainly the scale of spaces became the uniqueness factor. Along with this, the spatial integration and devices that allow intimacy, the relationship inside / outside and the intermediate spaces, facilities and equipment. But also, in terms of ways of living, some flexibility was sought from the dimensions and foresight of certain areas that may change over time. Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteThe proposed architecture is synthesis of space and materiality, is mainly represented by the relationship stand / enclosure and its materiality, dimensions and proportions-that present spatial devices that multiply it.

Donorfy ranked top in best product for functionality, cost, integration with other systems, integration with websites, ease of use, accessibility, and security. It also gained market share in the small charity category with the fundraising software platform the fastest growing CRM for UK non-profits, according to the survey.Donorfy also ranked top in the categories for best supplier for technical support, product upgrades, commitment to the charity sector, and investment in development. All of the Donorfy users that responded said they would recommend it to others.The Charity CRM Software Survey is published in the May 2017 issue of Fundraising Magazine, and examined themes including software integration, length of ownership, functionality, data management and regulatory compliance. This year, a question also addressed how GDPR may affect charity CRM programmes.Robin Fisk, founder of Donorfy said:“We have found that there is an appetite among small and medium-sized nonprofits for charity-focused CRM that’s ready to go and powerful, but without the heavy costs that were previously associated with traditional systems. Donorfy was designed from the ground up for the cloud. This has tons of benefits, not least of which are the product updates that happen without the charity needing to upgrade, and the lower implementation and running costs.” 157 total views, 1 views today Advertisement Tagged with: Charity CRM Software crm About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

The Phone-paid Services Authority (PSA) has opened a consultation on its newly drafted special conditions for society lottery services. Following on from the successes of text giving, a new VAT-exempt text shortcode series has been established specifically for society lotteries to enable people to pay by phone to enter. It will use numbers beginning 72, and will operate separately to the existing 70 number range used for SMS donations.The PSA‘s proposed special conditions for using phone payment to enter society lotteries are intended to build confidence in the market, support compliant providers, and reduce any risk of consumer harm. They cover under-age gambling, the information that ought to be displayed in promotional material, conditions of point of purchase and over how people are charged, receipts, and notifying the PSA within 48 hours of a service being launched.The consultation will run until 17 April 2018 and interested parties are invited to review the proposed conditions and share their views.A PSA spokesperson said:“We’re pleased to see further growth and innovation in this space, and we hope that these special conditions will help to build consumer confidence in these services.“Effective regulation can play an important part in building and maintaining a secure and dynamic market where consumers can charge content, goods and services to their phone bill with confidence.“We look forward to hearing from people in the phone-paid services industry and charity sector.” 129 total views, 1 views today Advertisement Tagged with: Lotteries Smartphone Fundraising Phone-paid Services Authority launches consultation for society lottery services special conditions 130 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis4 Melanie May | 7 March 2018 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis4 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Organisation The first 100 days of the government led by President Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai and Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah have seen significant advances for media freedom.The two leaders made several statements in support of freedom of information in September. Key measures favouring freedom of information have also been taken. They include modifying the access to information law, eliminating the Media Offences Commission, and the planned creation of a media regulatory body under a new media law.But this period has also seen the continuation of a wave of violence against journalists than was unleashed when election coverage began last October. The Taliban stepped up attacks on the civilian population more than a year ago, and their targets have included journalists and media.Reporters Without Borders has also noted at least nine arrests of journalists and bloggers, 55 attacks or threats against information providers, five abductions and four fatal attacks, in which two of the victims were foreign reporters. Despite this wave of violence, Afghan journalists have continued to play an important and responsible role in providing coverage of the elections and the post-election political crisis.“The main reason for the continuing violence and resulting instability has been the war waged by the Taliban against the desire for peace and democracy that the Afghan people demonstrated in the presidential election,” said Reza Moini, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Iran-Afghanistan desk.“But news media and journalists are increasingly being threatened by local government officials and military personnel. All of these abuses must be stopped,” Moini added.Reporters Without Borders reiterates the importance of the need for the Afghan government to address the following essential points and to consider the recommendations that Reporters Without Borders made in its March 2014 report entitled “Presidential election in Afghanistan: local media on the front line”:- Abuses against journalists, which mostly take place outside the capital, continue to go unpunished. At least 32 journalists have been killed in connection with their work since 2002. Women journalists are often singled out for acts of violence and intimidation.- The new interior and justice ministries must relaunch investigations into past murders and serious cases of violence against journalists. They must also ensure that the police investigate every new attack or threat against journalists and do what is necessary to punish those responsible and provide prosecutors and judges with complete case files.- The information ministry must foster editorial independence in the state-owned news media.- The government and religious authorities must defend the right of women to work as journalists, including TV journalists, in the same way that men do.Afghanistan is ranked 128th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. AfghanistanAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders welcomes the appointment of several human rights and freedom of information defenders in the new national unity government that was finally formed on 12 January. They include Najiba Ayubi, a journalist on the Reporters Without Borders list of “100 information heroes,” and Ai Soltan Khirie, a renowned poet and journalist.
