That has allowed us to understand the overseas players better. It’s (bio-bubble) the case with all the teams. The only option you have is spending time in the team room. You can’t meet anyone from the outside, there is less distractions also. That’s a good thing in this IPL. It can be harsh, but it’s amazing the fact that you can remain within the team environment. We need to get points, but desperation is something where you don’t want to be. Desperation pushes you to commit more errors on the field. It’s an important game for us. We have committed a few errors, need to focus on the process. I have been doing well in the nets, it’s important to replicate it out in the middle. We have one change – Jagadeesan in place of Kedar Jadhav, Kohli: We’ll bat first. We backed our decision last game as well, but we got ourselves into a tough position not having enough partnerships. The wicket is going to get slower and slower. There wasn’t much dew in the last game as well. It’s fair enough to defend today. We won two times batting first and one convincing win while chasing. When you are playing against quality sides, you need to come out and play good cricket. We (him and Dhoni) have played together for so long, we have a great partnership together. The games (RCB vs CSK) are always competitive. We have all had mutual respect between us. It’s important to get into some kind of momentum, where the bowlers come in and bowl a certain way. We have a great chance to create it now. It’s an exciting phase we are entering into. Chris Morris makes his RCB debut.

I’d avoid the TUI share price and buy other cheap UK shares instead

first_img In my opinion, the TUI (LSE: TUI) share price is currently one of the riskiest in the UK. There are a couple of reasons why I believe this to be the case.Riskiest UK sharesThe coronavirus pandemic has winded the global travel and tourism industry. Unfortunately, it looks as if it could be several years before the industry returns to 2019 levels of activity.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…Granted, there are some signs of life in the industry, and travellers who are booking holidays seem to be willing to spend more, but all figures point to the conclusion that total sales will be substantially lower this year than in 2019. The market could recover in 2022. As of yet, it is too early to tell. But even if it does, TUI faces an uphill struggle. Over the past year, the company has been bailed out not one but three times by the German government. These bailouts have placed restrictions and limitations on the business, such as limits on management bonuses and dividends.As such, it seems to me that it will have to go above and beyond 2019 levels of profitability to repay outstanding borrowings and remove limitations. This could be an impossible challenge for the business. It may mean that the TUI share price lags the market for years.This is only my interpretation of the situation. It may be able to renegotiate with its creditors to improve its financial situation. Management may be able to lift restrictions on the business in this scenario. What’s more, the travel market may rebound faster than analysts expect. If the market recovers to 2019 levels of activity in the second half of 2021, and consumers are spending more, the outlook for the TUI share price may dramatically improve.Still, I would avoid the stock for the time being considering its uncertain outlook. I’d buy other cheap UK shares instead. Alternatives As a way to invest in the UK economic recovery, I think there are plenty of other cheap UK shares that offer a better risk-reward ratio than the TUI share price. A good example is the banking giant NatWest Group.I think the outlook for this enterprise has improved markedly over the past six months. The pandemic has hurt the business, but the impact has been nowhere near as bad as expected. As a result, regulators have allowed banks like NatWest to resume cash returns to investors.While the outlook for the financial sector has improved, it is not entirely out of the woods. Low interest rates will weigh on profit margins for years, and a spike in business failures could place further pressure on its balance sheet. Still, I would buy the bank as part of a diversified basket of cheap UK shares as a recovery investment.Another company I would add to my portfolio is Compass. This global catering specialist reported a sharp decline in revenue for 2020. However, people will always need to eat. So, I believe that while the group suffered significantly last year, it should return to growth in the years ahead. Challenges the organisation faces include a high level of debt and an extension of coronavirus restrictions. These could hold back growth. Due to these risks, I’d own the business as part of a diversified basket of UK shares.  Rupert Hargreaves owns no share mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Compass Group.

Please enter your email address here By Kristina Lerman, University of Southern CaliforniaHas this happened to you? You strike up a conversation with a complete stranger, only to discover that you share surprising connections. My own brush with this phenomenon took place recently at a conference in Canada.I was sharing a table with two strangers – one from Israel, the other from Baltimore, Maryland – when the sitcom “The Big Bang Theory” came up in conversation. As it happened, the science adviser for the show is a good friend, and I never miss an opportunity to mention this. To my surprise, I was not the only one connected to the show.The Israeli researcher was related to one of the main actors, while the Baltimore researcher worked with my friend’s graduate school roommate. What a small world, our group agreed when we learned of these connections. We should not have been surprised.As network scientists who study complex systems composed of many interconnected parts, we know that social networks connecting us through kinship and friendship are often small, in the sense that any two people within the network are connected by unexpectedly short chains made up of social links.Whom do you know?One way to explain the small world effect is the story of Paul Erdos, the peripatetic mathematician. Erdos famously did not pay rent or own property; instead, he spent his life couch surfing at the homes of his mathematician friends. Each visit produced a mathematical paper or two.Over the years, he wrote hundreds of papers with his hosts. As a tribute, the mathematics community devised the “Erdos number,” to measure the collaboration distance to him. Paul Erdos’s co-authors had an Erdos number of “1”; people who wrote papers with them had an Erdos number of “2,” and so on. About a quarter-million published mathematicians had an Erdos number, with a majority of them smaller than “5.”The brilliant mathematician, Paul Erdos, created a network of mathematics scholars.Remarkable as Erdos was, he was quite ordinary from the social network point of view. Anyone can be an Erdos. Let’s pick an “ordinary Joe.” His friends will have a “Joe number” of 1, their friends will have a “Joe number” of 2 and so on. In fact, unless there is something seriously wrong with Joe, half the people in the United States will be linked to him by six hops – degrees of separation – or less. Yes, it really is a “small world.”There’s more. Not only do short chains connecting people exist, but people are surprisingly good at finding them. This was elegantly demonstrated by the sociologist Stanley Milgram in his 1963 experiment. Milgram chose some people at random from the Omaha, Nebraska, phone book and gave them each a manila envelope, with instructions to deliver the envelope to a stockbroker in Boston that Milgram knew.The distance between us is shrinking.Gazlast/Shutterstock.com/The instructions were as follows: “If you do not know the target, do not try to contact him directly. Instead, mail this letter … to a personal acquaintance who is more likely than you to know the target … you must know this person on a first-name basis.” The acquaintance was given the same instructions. Milgram dropped off more than 160 letters and waited. The first letter arrived within a few days. Eventually, more than 40 letters reached the target, typically requiring – you guessed it – six forwarding hops.How were people able to find such short chains? Hints emerged already from Milgram’s experiment. When tracing the path of a letter, each hop typically halved the geographic distance to the target. As computer scientist Jon Kleinberg later proved, this is consistent with how social networks are organized.People have friends near and far, though there are fewer friends who are farther away. The long-range connections, though few and far between, help to stitch the social network together. Even if a person in Omaha, Nebraska, did not personally know anyone in Boston, they may have known someone who lives closer, like Chicago, to send the letter to, and that person would have been more likely to know someone closer to Boston, and so on. When the letter ultimately reached someone in Boston, that person would have had many local friends to choose from, one of whom may have known the target.Surprising connectionsSocial interactions have migrated online in recent years. Facebook and other platforms make it easy to keep in touch with friends both near and far. As a result, social networks have gotten smaller. In 2011, Facebook researchers measured the chains of links connecting its 2 billion users: The median length was four, not six. This may explain why the entire world seems to find out about the latest news and trendy memes at nearly the same time.Our decreasing social distance to other people in the world may also facilitate the spread of misinformation and fake news, especially when it captures our emotions or imaginations. But, it also rewards us with serendipitous discoveries of connectedness.

In Kind Direct says £1.37 billion of surplus products wasted each year

first_imgIn Kind Direct says £1.37 billion of surplus products wasted each year Howard Lake | 18 June 2007 | News However, it believes far more could be done. It argues that a further £80 million worth of in-kind giving is possible each year. To help businesses realise what they could do, it has identified the products UK-based charities need most, namely household cleaning products, basic toiletries, toilet paper, office supplies, cookware, tools, toys, linen and clothing.Charity CEO, Robin Boles explained: “Every day in the UK, charities struggle to raise sufficient funds to purchase essential items. At the same time, manufacturers and retailers will send these very same items to landfill, denying charities the chance to use these goods and make a real difference to people in need. “We save businesses time and money by redistributing the surplus and obsolete stock, which can tie up valuable warehouse space and management time, as we have the infrastructure in place to quickly accept donations and track everything through to the thousands of charities that benefit.” About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

The in-kind giving charity has called on businesses to give their surplus stock to UK charities.The charity commissioned the report to show the potential for the growth of ‘in-kind giving’. The report identified that each year the consumer goods sector alone produces enough surplus and off-spec products to fill the equivalent of 80 Olympic-sized swimming pools. Instead of being redistributed to those in need, much of it ends up in landfill and external recycling.In Kind Direct is 10 years old this year, and is one of ‘The Prince’s Charities’, a group of not-for-profit organisations of which The Prince of Wales is President. So far it has distributed £60 million worth of products from 700 companies to 4,000 UK charities working at home and abroad.

This will guide PDSA in choosing which creative approach to use with supporters in the future when promoting legacies.Feedback will be given through a simple response survey, giving tick box options. At the same time, supporters “will be asked implicitly” if legacy gifts and will-making are subjects which might be of interest to them and given the opportunity to request further information.This new approach will be tested against the charity’s existing and more traditional creative, which focuses on how legacy gifts can help to minimise Inheritance Tax.Tina Norton-Tuck, Head of Legacies and Major Gifts at PDSA, said: “Whilst the theme of minimising Inheritance Tax has worked well for us in the past, we want to test new ways of engaging our audience and making them feel that they can really play a personal part in helping us to reach out to more sick and injured pets.”www.pdsa.org.uklast_img read more

His death comes a day after a suicide bombing in Mogadishu that left many dead and wounded, including 11 journalists.“Somalia is still under the shock of yesterday’s tragedy in Mogadishu’s national theatre and now it is again the victim of a barbaric act,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Adan is the fourth journalist to be murdered in Somalia since the start of the year. Our thoughts are with his family and colleagues and the country’s entire media community, which keeps on sustaining losses.”Aged 22, Adan was also a reporter for Mogadishu-based Radio Shabelle.

Radio Shabelle said that, shortly before his death, Adan has covered a dispute between Al-Shabaab and another islamist militia called Ahlu Sunah Waljama.
