A statement on the PayPal site said: “PayPal has permanently restricted the account used by WikiLeaks due to a violation of the PayPal Acceptable Use Policy, which states that our payment service cannot be used for any activities that encourage, promote, facilitate or instruct others to engage in illegal activity. We’ve notified the account holder of this action.”A posting on WikiLeaks’ Twitter page said “PayPal bans WikiLeaks after US government pressure.”PayPal is one of several ways that WikiLeaks takes in donations to finance its operations.On Friday, WikiLeaks directed readers to a web address in Switzerland after two US Internet providers dropped it in the space of two days.Meanwhile, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has warned his supporters are primed to publish a “deluge” of leaked government documents if his activities are stopped.He has distributed a file to fellow hackers, thought to include details on BP and Guantanamo Bay. Assange counts the file as his insurance in case he is killed, arrested or his site permanently removed from the web.A warrant has now been issued for his arrest as Swedish prosecutors want to quiz him over rape allegations.

This is what I’m doing now FREE REPORT: Why this £5 stock could be set to surge Are you on the lookout for UK growth stocks?If so, get this FREE no-strings report now.While it’s available: you’ll discover what we think is a top growth stock for the decade ahead.And the performance of this company really is stunning.In 2019, it returned £150million to shareholders through buybacks and dividends.We believe its financial position is about as solid as anything we’ve seen.Since 2016, annual revenues increased 31%In March 2020, one of its senior directors LOADED UP on 25,000 shares – a position worth £90,259Operating cash flow is up 47%. (Even its operating margins are rising every year!)Quite simply, we believe it’s a fantastic Foolish growth pick.What’s more, it deserves your attention today.So please don’t wait another moment. Investor demand for UK shares remains pretty flat during Thursday business. Though the DFS Furniture Group (LSE: DFS) share price is having no problems making progress during today’s session.Market interest in the retailer has rocketed after it released a pre-close update for its financial year. At 317p per share, the DFS Furniture share price hit its most expensive since spring 2016 early on Thursday. It was recently trading 11% higher on the day at 302.5p.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…DFS’s share price rises as demand boomsIn an encouraging update for the year to June 2021, DFS Furniture said that orders have soared in recent weeks. So far in the final quarter order intake is up 92.1% year-on-year, a surge that reflects “customers waiting for showrooms to reopen post-lockdown and increased consumer spending on home categories.”During the second half, total orders were up 14%, while market share gains remained at around 2%. And it saw online sales rocketing 222.5% in the third quarter, a period when almost all of the company’s stores were shuttered due to Covid-19.Forecasts upgradedTrading has been so strong, in fact, that DFS has upgraded its full-year profit forecasts, despite ongoing Covid-19 pressures and supply chain issues.The retailer now reckons it will generate underlying profits of at least £105m for financial 2021. This is better than the £101.7m DFS had forecast back in December. The company had swung to a loss of £56.8m in the last fiscal year.Furthermore, DFS has predicted underlying profits of between £66m and £96m in financial 2022, ahead of market consensus. It said that the recent upsurge in orders will be recognised in the upcoming year.Finally, DFS has elected to reinstate dividends thanks to its strong cash generation and sunny outlook. It plans to pay a 7.5p per share final dividend for the outgoing financial year.This is what I’m doing nowLooking ahead, chief executive Tim Stacey said that “we will continue to invest in key strategic initiatives such as our digital channels, our showrooms and our Sofa Delivery Company final mile logistics capability.” He also pledged further investment in UK manufacturing and capacity as well as expansion into other homeware categories.As a UK share investor, I’m impressed by DFS’s ability to keep growing profits despite current difficulties. It is testament to the company’s strong multi-channel presence and its market-leading proposition. But the company isn’t out of the woods yet, as supply problems in the form of raw materials and container shortages, allied with a fresh spike in Covid-19 cases, could well derail its recovery.Today the DFS share price commands a forward price to earnings (or P/E) ratio of around 15 times. It’s not cheap enough to tempt me in and so I’m happy to sit on the sidelines for the moment.

This residence is primarily used when the clients’ extended family comes from England for long visits. They come to relax and to reconnect with their family and with nature, away from city crowds and traffic, at a retreat they neither want nor need to leave for a month. The design objective was to make every day of that month unique by providing a range of destinations within the site with diverse scales, functions, and views: from gathering in the expansive living room overlooking the fields of the former peach orchard to reading alone on a shaded bench between the library and the edge of the forest. Multiple paths and hallways connect each destination, further increasing variety. Finally, each detail and custom furnishing is designed to make mundane rituals into thoughtful events.

Those not cooking can make a selection from the wine room where the bottles cast a pattern of shadows through a glazed wall into the main entrance. The dining table can be configured for the evening: stainless steel tubes running the length of the table can be rotated to reveal candleholders, flower vase holders, or flat surfaces for hot dishes. At other times, the tubes can be removed and the trough filled with ice for chilling drinks. For a change of pace, there is dining on the roof deck at sunset, barbequing on the terrace, lunch in the shade of the pool house canopy, or breakfast in the screened porch. Each space is unique, making each meal special. Save this picture!© Michael Moran PhotographyEven the morning routine becomes an event. In the kids’ rooms, a ribbon of stone traces their morning ritual. Starting as a nightstand by the bed, it becomes a bench for their pile of clothes, a desk for checking their email, a sink in the bathroom, and, finally, the shower floor. In the parents’ master closet, hidden steel hooks pivot up from the mahogany bench to hang the day’s outfit choices. Save this picture!© Michael Moran PhotographyThe clients wanted this to be a gathering place for their family, full of memories for generations to come. Thus the materials were chosen not only for durability but also for their gradual changes over many years. The copper siding and roofing will slowly turn green as the weathering limestone becomes darker. However, the window system will stand the test of time unchanged. An English company has manufactured the same industrial steel windows for over 150 years and many early examples are still in tact. A geothermal heating and cooling system, green roofs, organic finishes, and triple glazed windows will minimize the structure’s environmental impact over the generations.

Justice Shankar noted that the NLSIU and the NLU Consortium are situation within the jurisdiction of Karnataka HC, and said that if different High Courts pass conflicting orders, confusion will be created in the issue having pan-India ramifications.Senior Advocate Sajan Poovayya, appearing for the NLSIU, submitted that a similar petition was pending before the Supreme Court. Raising the plea of forum non-conveniens, he urged the High Court to refrain from exercising jurisdiction.Justice Shankar then sought clarifications from Poovayya regarding the arrangements for the exam, and about the complaints of difficulties raised by the students.Poovayya informed the bench that all arrangments for the test have been made. Initially, there was a condition for having an internet speed of 1 Mbps. This was later revised as 512 Kbps.”We have made arrangements for students who reached out to us regarding the inaccessibility of internet access with IDIALaw. If we don’t start the year, we will have a zero year. We have 30298 students ready to write the examination”, he told the bench. He further said that the deadline for registration was ending today.”Everything is panned out. The dates are out. We will start the academic year from September 18″, he said.Following this, the judge asked the petitioner’s counsel about the difficulties which they were apprehending.In reply, Advocate Gautam cited an article written by Professor Faizan Mustafa, the Vice-Chancellor of NALSAR, in LiveLaw about the problems of NLAT.Justice Shankar replied that he was not interested in anyone else’s opinion and wanted to know the difficulties faced by the petitioners.When the counsel mentioned about internet glitches, Poovayya assured that all such issues have been addressed.”Any student who gets logged out for a few minutes, students will not be removed from the examination”, he submitted.The petition was filed by 5 CLAT aspirants from Jharkhand, stating that NLSIU’s decision to withdraw from CLAT and to hold a separate examination, despite being a “permanent member” of the NLU Consortium, is unlawful and arbitrary.The Petitioners have contended that the University has changed its stance after filling of the CLAT forms and is thus in violation of principle of promissory estoppel. Further, declaration of new pattern of examination by the University, around 10 days before the declared date of CLAT, is illegal and against the established precedents of the Supreme Court for the conduct of “fair and just examination”.Moreover it is contended that the move is violative of clause 15.7 (Voluntary withdrawal of member institution) of the bye laws of the Consortium of NLUs.It was on September 3 that the National Law School of India University, Bangalore, announced its decision to hold a separate test for admission to five year B.A LL.B(Hons) course for the academic year 2020-21. The new test called the ‘National Law Aptitude Test’ (NLAT) is proposed to be held online on September 12.The Petitioners have urged the Court to set aside this decision and to grant ad-interim, ex-parte stay on the effect and operation of the notice during pendency of the petition.The Petition has been filed through Advocates Shubham Gautam and Baibhaw GehlautNext Storylast_img read more

Funding efforts ‘rock on’

first_img Helms said the 75th Anniversary Celebration of the dedication of the Rock Building accomplished two purposes.“It showed the interest in and the support of the project and also brought awareness to the condition of the building,” he said. “This is probably our last chance to save the Rock Building. If we don’t do it now, this historic building will be condemned and torn down. We can’t let that happen.’Helms expressed appreciation to all of those who attended the anniversary celebration and to those who have donated funds to save the Rock Building. The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration On July 13, 20014, the people of Pike County showed their support of the efforts to restore the Rock Building by a strong showing at the 75th Anniversary Celebration of the dedication of the Pike Activities Building, commonly known as the Rock Building.David Helms, who is leading the grassroots preservation efforts, said the people of Pike County hit a homerun with the anniversary celebration.“The Pike County Commission owns the Rock Building and, the first thing the Commissioners wanted to know was how much interest there is in saving the Rock Building,” Helms said. “I think now they know that there is tremendous interest and not just from people who live in Pike County. We’ve had people from all around Alabama and from other states to mail in donations and written messages. The interest is there.” Funding efforts ‘rock on’ “To date, we’ve had 530 people who have donated a total of $11,550. It’s incredible that we’ve been able to generate that amount of interest and that amount of money in such a short time,” Helms said.The steering committee is continuing to meet to discuss possible state and federal grant funding and also funding through the private sector.“Of course, this is a grassroots effort and we’ll have local fundraisers that will not only raise dollars but bring our community together in spirit and purpose,” Helms said.But the first order of business for the community is to find a use for the Rock Building. “Before we can apply for grants and make plans, we have to determine a use for the building,” Helms said. “People from all around the county are encouraged to submit their suggestions to any of the donation stations around the county. Ideas are being tossed around and every suggestion will be considered. We want to find the best use for the building and one that will serve the entire county.”Helms said donations are being accepted in any amount.“We appreciate every dime and every dollar because they all represent support in saving the Rock Building,” he said.Donation stations are all Troy Bank & Trust locations, Troy’s Main Branch, Brundidge and Goshen and Douglas Bros., Home Gallery, WTBF, the Pike County Chamber of Commerce in Troy, Banks Buy Rite in Banks and Mobley Business Service in Brundidge.
