Talks between the two companies were ongoing yesterday, with Rio understood to be offering around A$16 a share for Mozambique-focused Riversdale. Riversdale could instead announce a longer suspension from the stock exchange this morning if a deal is not finalised before the markets open, in accordance with Australian trading rules. Rio entered talks with Riversdale at the start of the month, when Rio was said to have offered A$15 a share. The new offer represents a 13.5 per cent premium to Riversdale’s share price before the talks were announced. If Rio succeeds, the purchase will boost its presence in the coking coal market, in which rival BHP Billiton already has a large holding. Meanwhile, Rio was yesterday linked to Russian diamond miner Alrosa, with Russian media reporting that the London-listed giant was looking to spend $400m (£259.9m)?on a 49 per cent stake in the firm. A spokesperson for Rio declined to comment on either company yesterday, while Riversdale also declined to comment. State-owned Alrosa was unavailable for comment.

Whenever he got the chance, he opened his arms and hit four fours and as many sixes.Dhoni and Suresh Raina (36) added 61 runs for the fourth wicket, pushing the ball around and later the former India skipper raised a 56-run stand with West Indies’ Dwayne Barvo, who added quick 27 runs.Royals were disciplined throughout but pacer Jaydev Unadkat (1/54) conceded 28 runs in the final over with Dhoni finding three of his four sixes in that over after Ravindra Jadeja (8) lofted the paceman for a maximum.The Royals innings went the CSK way as they struggled in Powerplay overs and lost top three batsmen.Steve Smith (28) and Rahul Tripathi (3) steadied the innings with their 61-run partnership for the fourth wicket but spinner Imran Tahir sent them back in an excellent spell to make it difficult for the visitors.Stokes (46 off 26) was still at the crease when Royals needed 44 from last three overs. Stokes and Archer collected 19 runs from Barvo’s over taking the equation to 25 from 12.It came down to 12 from last six balls and Bravo made up for that expensive over by having Stokes caught in the first ball. The West Indian all-rounder conceded just three runs by bowling quick to ensure CSK end on the right side of the result.Earlier, the Royals pace trio of Archer (2/17), Dhawal Kulkarni (1/37) and Stokes kept the CSK batsmen on a tight leash in the powerplay overs. They conceded just 29 runs and also got rid of three top-order batsmen.Each of them accounted for one CSK batsman, bringing experienced Dhoni and Raina together at the crease.The runs came in singles with spinners Shreyas Gopal and Krishnappa Gowtham maintaining the pressure with tight line and length.The ball stopped a bit, specially when Gopal operated, making stroke-making even more difficult. At half-way mark, CSK out on board just 55 runs and only seven boundaries were struck.Raina meanwhile hit a massive six off Gopal but the two spinners did well to concede 37 runs while bowling in tandem for five overs.In came Unadkat and went for a few runs but broke the stand by castling Raina with a quick delivery.

4 things I think investors should know about the Saga share price Nadia Yaqub | Monday, 25th January, 2021 | More on: SAGA 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. Looking at the Saga (LSE: SAGA) share price over the long term, doesn’t make for easy reading. Despite recent rises, the stock has suffered over the years and the pandemic has added to this.Does this make the Saga share price a bargain and should I add it to my portfolio? Here’s what I’m looking out for.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…#1 – Over 50s could boost the Saga share priceSaga is a travel and insurance business that caters for the over-50s. This demographic is growing in the UK. This consumer segment is also typically the wealthiest.I think Saga is onto a winner in this respect. Not only is its target market growing, but it also has cash to spend. The over-50s demographic is typically more brand-loyal as well.In the travel segment, Saga operates worldwide tours and cruises. But these have been halted since March 2020 due to the travel restrictions associated with Covid-19. Yet so far, 65% of cancelled customers have decided to retain their travel bookings rather than request refunds.That’s good news, but I should also highlight that the travel business is dependent on the government lifting restrictions, and we don’t know when that will happen. This means the Saga share price could be volatile until then (and afterwards too) as it works to make up for lost business. #2 – Not all about travelWhen it comes to the Saga share price, I’m not focusing solely on the travel business. According to Saga’s 2020 financials, 58% of revenue came from the travel business, but this isn’t the profitable segment. It’s the insurance business that’s growing and is the most profitable.The company’s insurance business offers motor and home policies to the over-50s. In a recent trading statement, Saga reported that these policies are now growing for the first time in five years. While the pandemic continues to halt the travel business, I expect the insurance division to continue to expand. #3 – Capital raising Last year, Saga set about raising £150m to boost the balance sheet. Along came Sir Roger de Haan who invested £100m into the company for a 20% stake.Who is he? Well, Sir Roger was the former CEO of Saga and the son of the company’s founder. For one investor to pile in with this amount of money, to me, highlights his confidence in the business and the recovery of the Saga share price. Sir Roger has also become the Non-Executive Chairman of the company.#4 – New managementOut with the old and in with the new. I think the pandemic has wiped the slate clean for Saga. The former CEO was replaced with Euan Sutherland in January 2020. He’d previously been CEO of Superdry (and was ousted from its board there after a declining performance). Superdry may not have been a bright spot for him but he was more successful in his time at The Co-op Group. More recently, the head of Saga Insurance has stepped down due to personal reasons.I don’t see changes at the top as negative though — new management offers Saga a chance for a fresh start. What’s next for the Saga share price?I think the stock’s recovery is linked to travel demand and depends on the lifting of Covid-19 restrictions. There are too many unknowns surrounding the pandemic. For now, I’ll be watching the share price closely. Image source: Getty Images.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. I love a good UK share with big dividend yields. Who doesn’t? But with the Covid-19 pandemic rolling on, taking large yields at face value is dangerous business.Dividends from UK shares collapsed by almost half in 2020 as the pandemic hit corporate profits and balance sheets. And shareholder payouts are likely to keep falling in the near term at least as the enduring public health emergency keeps the world locked down.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…I won’t stop searching for big-yielding British companies for my Stocks and Shares ISA, however. There are plenty of quality UK shares that should keep paying big dividends regardless of the Covid-19 crisis. Here I explain whether I think the following FTSE 100 stocks are brilliant buys for my portfolio or investment traps.A high-risk UK shareThere are plenty of oil market analysts out there who are predicting a steady rise in crude prices following 2020’s crash. They’re expecting demand to improve as the pandemic unwinds and the global economy gets back to normal.Heck, the boffins at UBS have even been raising their forecasts in recent days despite “more severe” lockdowns than they had anticipated being imposed at the start of 2021. They now reckon the Brent benchmark will average $57 per barrel this year, up from $56 at present. The number crunchers upgraded their forecasts in 2022 and 2023, too, and reckon black gold will average $60 in both periods.Does all of this make BP (LSE: BO) a solid buy today, then? I’m not so sure. Even this UK share’s 5.6% forward dividend yield isn’t enough to attract me to buy. Any signs that Covid-19 lockdowns will persist long into 2021 could send Brent prices hurtling through the floor again, resulting in more dividend carnage at the FTSE 100 oilie.Serious demand questions aren’t the only reason I’m concerned about BP’s dividends, however. Resilient oil supply means that crude inventories continue to build. Meanwhile, pressure from Russia for the OPEC+ group of countries to raise production keeps on growing, threatening to release extra waves of unwanted material onto the market.I can’t deny that those dividends do look attractive, that BP has a strong track record of paying them and is working to reduce its reliance on oil. But it’s not for me at present.8%+ dividend yields!This uncertainty means I’d be happier to use any cash I’d spend on BP to buy shares in Persimmon (LSE: PSN) instead. And it’s not just because the yield at this UK share sits at an even higher 8.7% for 2021.Don’t get me wrong. This FTSE 100 stock carries risks of its own. Firstly, the twin crises of Covid-19 and Brexit spell danger for new homes demand this year. Secondly, a growing shortage of construction materials threatens to hamper production rates at Persimmon and its peers in the near term and beyond.That said, I think this UK share can still look ahead with optimism. I think favourable lending conditions mean that demand from first-time buyers should keep outstripping supply. Rocketing house prices during pandemic-hit 2020 support this view, I feel. There’s a strong possibility that this homes shortage will persist long into the future too. So I expect Persimmon to remain a generous dividend payer well beyond 2021. I’d buy for my portfolio.

They were white, poorly educated, and mostly poor. They were also deeply afraid. They believed the lies their parents and neighbors had told them about those who were different from them. Most of them were so far down on the economic ladder that they believed equality for people of any other race or religion could only mean that their own prospects for prosperity would be diminished. In those days, I didn’t know what a white supremacist or a white nationalist was, but I did know something about poor, ignorant, and very frightened people.In my naiveté, I believed, as the 1960s turned into the 1970s and then the ’80s, Americans would make progress in overcoming such racism. And, certainly, significant progress was achieved. Overt racism was challenged through the bipartisan passage of the Civil Rights Act, and our nation made progress by outlawing certain racist practices and by working towards greater equality through the Affirmative Action movement.As we crossed into a new millennium, I along with many others thought we would never fall back into the baseless fears of a previous generation. I was wrong. The fear I witnessed as a child in the 1950s and ’60s morphed over time into a newer version of white supremacy. White men (and some white women) from certain geographic and economic segments of the country have come to believe that movement towards equality for all has diminished their standing and identity. They are now the ones who feel “victimized” and “discriminated” against. In the process of our society moving toward greater racial equality and religious inclusivity, they believe people of color have been granted privileges they no longer possess, and they believe people of other religions pose a threat to their own religious identity.It is surreal to be writing a statement in 2017 in the United States of America condemning the violence and hatred of white supremacists and white nationalists marching in Charlottesville, Virginia. We must remember the reason white supremacists and nationalists gathered there was to protest the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee from a prominent place in a city park, and to protest the removal of such symbols from a number of public places around the country. As they marched, they chanted racist and anti-Semitic slogans, including one slogan borrowed from the Nazis. They brought into the public domain a fearsome racism that is usually found only behind closed doors.I understood that language used in the recent presidential election granted a kind of permission to white supremacists and nationalists to more freely express these abhorrent beliefs. I knew there had been an uptick in the number of violent statements being made against people of color and against people of other religions, particularly against Jews and Muslims. I also knew there had been an uptick in the number of violent acts against people of color and other religions.Still, I was shocked, as many of you were, to see a news video of a crowd of mostly white men making their way, with burning torches, to a church filled with people who had gathered there in opposition to the hate-filled rhetoric these men had come to proclaim. This was a scene reminiscent of the Ku Klux Klan marches of years gone by. I count among my friends a number of clergy who were present in that church as witnesses to the inclusive embrace of Christ’s love. They put themselves in harm’s way, in the ancient tradition of Christians who did not count the cost when it came to proclaiming the loving, inclusive power of the Good News of God in Christ.Good people of every allegiance should condemn these actions unambiguously. White supremacy is a danger to the moral fabric of our nation and it is particularly abhorrent to Christians of good will who take the words of the Apostle Paul seriously: Featured Events “There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female, for all of you are one in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3: 28So, what can we do as members of the St. Bart’s community of faith?

The house is situated in a heavily built-up area consisting of a heterogeneous mix of detached houses. The project starts from the idea of defining (building) the external spaces (the voids) in order to use all the available space in the plot.Save this picture!© Thomas JantscherThe house and its ancillary structure are therefore positioned on the northern perimeter of the plot. This space will be used for welcoming visitors.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe structure extends along the eastern perimeter and becomes a boundary wall within which an opening provides vehicular access for the occupants.Save this picture!© Thomas JantscherThe “constructed” perimeter therefore extends over the whole plot, varying in height, with the wall providing the necessary screening for the external functions. It also reinforces the idea that the house extends to the boundaries of the property.Save this picture!First Floor PlanThe house is compact and is designed to take best advantage of the views over the surrounding landscape that the plot affords. The openings in the façade walls are positioned to face the alpine peaks. The “half-level” typology provides the height required to provide unobstructed lines of sight while creating multiple internal spatial relationships.The equipment rooms and the cellar are located in the basement, the kitchen-dining room is on the ground floor, with the living room on a slightly higher level. The bedrooms and study are on the top floor, arranged around an open staircase that forms the core of the house.Save this picture!SectionThe building is constructed entirely of exposed reinforced concrete. The plastic qualities of this material meant that it could be used to produce the structures, staircases, façades and external landscaping. The choice of concrete had a major impact, as this helped to define both the desired form and the scale of the building.
