Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Having suspended its final 2019 dividend in April, Mondi (LSE: MNDI) announced today that it would be resuming dividend payments. Along with a fairly strong trading update, this has seen the stock price of the paper and packaging company rise significantly. But I believe that this rise is set to continue, and I’d therefore buy the FTSE 100 stock today.Trading updateAlthough profits were hit by the pandemic, the damage at Mondi was limited compared to many other FTSE 100 stocks. Operating profits were €518m in the first six months of the year, compared to €679m in the same period last year.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…The main reason for the dip in profits was the downturn within the paper industry. With offices around the country shut, the demand for paper has been significantly lower, which led to lower selling prices. As such, operating profits from the paper segment were €106m, down 45% on last year. Even so, the firm has stated that order books have improved throughout June and July, even if demand is still weaker than normal.On the other hand, profits from the packaging sector were more resilient. In fact, profits from both the corrugated and flexible packaging segments were only down 11%. This indicates a very resilient performance in testing conditions, especially as factories were forced to shut at one point.The FTSE 100 stock will pay a dividend!One of the major positives from the trading update today was the news that Mondi will resume dividend payments. This has been enabled by the robust trading performance in the first half of the year, and its strong financial position. As a result, the company has declared a dividend of 29.75 euro cents, as well as an interim dividend of 19 cents. This total of 48.75 cents will go ex-dividend on 21 August. This means that all Mondi shareholders who purchase shares before this date shall be entitled to the payment.The current dividend represents a yield of over 3%. Although slightly less than payments in the last few years, it’s still a very high yield in comparison to other FTSE 100 stocks. The company also has a dividend cover of between 2 and 3. As a result, it will still have money to deal with the impacts of the pandemic, as well as developing the business.Strong financial positionThe trading update also affirmed that Mondi has a very strong financial position. Net debt has actually decreased from €2.2bn to around €2bn, and this can be easily covered by operating cash flow.The liquidity position is also very strong. In fact, the group has access to net cash of €606m and €805m of undrawn committed debt facilities. This large amount of cash should help the company deal with the crisis and capitalise on any opportunities that arise.After this recent trading update, I’m very confident about the future of this FTSE 100 stock. The return of dividends is very welcome news, and the firm has evidently managed to cope well with the challenging environment. I’d therefore buy Mondi shares today. This FTSE 100 stock has just reinstated its dividend. I’d buy today!

The building defies the conventional idea of what a terraced house should look like. The 16 condominium apartments are fused like islands into an overall form with clearly defined edges. The shape clings to the contours of the existing terrain, reacting to the course of the slope with differentiated oblique angles. With its choice of materials, colouration, lack of detail and large scale, the volume seems to be part of the Bruggerberg hill.Save this picture!SectionEight simply structured 4.5- to 5.5-room apartments are arranged along the east and west sides of a central stairway. The main floor of each flat has floor-to-ceiling windows across its entire breadth, facing onto a terrace. Rooms can optionally be separated off with lightweight partition walls. The garage on the ground floor serves as a noise barrier toward the busy main street. On the other floors, stout balustrades and the closing off of the terraces at the sides create quiet, private living areas and outdoor spaces.Save this picture!© Hannes HenzProject gallerySee allShow lessWhy Not Hand A Hermit Crab a Shelter?Architecture NewsC-Q Project / JSªSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Brugg, SwitzerlandLocation to be used only as a reference.

What took place on 23 May constitutes a crime under Lithuanian law. The threat of the use of armed force by a military plane against a civilian plane, to make it change course under the false pretext of a bomb alert is penalised by article 251 of the criminal code, which punishes “the hijacking of an aircraft by means of a firearm, explosive or other means endangering the life or health of the crew or passengers of the aircraft.” BelarusLithuaniaEurope – Central Asia Protecting journalists Council of EuropeImprisonedImpunityFreedom of expressionExiled mediaJudicial harassmentViolence BelarusLithuaniaEurope – Central Asia Protecting journalists Council of EuropeImprisonedImpunityFreedom of expressionExiled mediaJudicial harassmentViolence News May 25, 2021 In complaint filed in Lithuania, RSF accuses Lukashenko of hijacking with terrorist intent RSF_en In response to the diversion of a Ryanair flight carrying 126 passengers, including Belarusian journalist Raman Pratasevich, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) has formally asked Lithuania’s prosecutors to investigate Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko and any other person they identify for criminal hijacking. RSF calls for a fully transparent investigation after mine kills two journalists in Azerbaijan Receive email alerts “We decided to file a complaint against Alexander Lukashenko himself because he was the direct instigator of this act of hijacking for terrorist purposes, and the term is not excessive,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “The Lithuanian criminal code penalises hijacking a plane ‘by threatening the lives or health of the crew or passengers’ and defines ‘terrorist aim’ as ‘intent to intimidate the public or part of the public.’ By this unprecedented act, Alexander Lukashenko wanted to reinforce intimidation of the public, especially journalists.” After a detailed statement of the facts, RSF’s letter dismisses the “bomb alert” claim made by Minsk to justify diverting the plane as clearly fabricated. There are many “credible reasons for believing that the bomb claim was a false alarm used by the Belarusian government to force the plane to land with the aim of arresting the journalist,” the complaint says. The complaint demonstrates that President Lukashenko’s order sending a Belarusian air force MiG-29 to intercept the Ryanair flight constituted “endangering the life or health of the crew or passengers.” The complaint details the many reasons for concluding that the bomb alert was just a false alarm used as a pretext to force the plane to land and arrest the journalist Raman Pratasevich.Finally, the complaint shows that the arrest’s sole aim was to intimidate the public, especially all critical journalists in Belarus and abroad. It says: “There is no doubt that Pratasevich’s arrest, following an unprecedented hijacking of an international plane, is intended to intimidate all Belarusian journalists, inside and outside the country. This event is intended to show them that, wherever they are, they can be apprehended by the regime and put in prison. It shows that the regime will not hesitate to arrest anyone who criticizes it.”The confession extracted from Pratasevich and broadcast on Belarusian television yesterday, in which he recognises that he is guilty of the charge of organising “mass riots,” confirms this cynical strategyAttempt to destabilise the European Union Credit: PETRAS MALUKAS / AFP Respect judicial independence in cases of two leading journalists in Serbia and Montenegro, RSF says News News June 8, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information Significantly, article 7 of Lithuania’s criminal code states: “Persons are held responsible under this code regardless of their nationality and place of residence, also of the place of commission of a crime and whether the act committed is punished under the laws of the place of the commission of the crime, when they commit (…) acts of terrorism and crimes linked to terrorist activity.” June 4, 2021 Find out more News RSF is also of the view that, “by attacking a European aircraft flying between two European capitals, an aircraft registered in an EU member state (Poland), and belonging to a company based in another EU member state (Ireland),” the hijacking was designed to destabilise the European Union. “This attack has tested the EU, as the European Council’s reaction today made clear,” RSF said. “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says Related documents Читать на русском / Read in RussianPDF – 124.17 KB The complaint targets President Lukashenko and any other person the investigators may identify as responsible. RSF says the prosecutors must determine whether or not Lukashenko may claim immunity as head of state, bearing in mind that the alleged acts fall outside the scope of his office. A recent decision by the German federal court of justice suggests that he could not claim such immunity.Belarus fell five places in RSF’s 2021 World Press Freedom Index and is now ranked 158th out of 180 countries.

News News Follow the news on China News RSF_en June 16, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 No verdict in Zhao Yan trial as court ignores legal deadline Reporters Without Borders expressed concern today at the “completely illegal” handling by the authorities of the case of New York Times employee Zhao Yan, who faces the death penalty for “fraud” and “revealing state secrets.” The organisation calls for the immediate release of the laureate of the 2005 Reporters Without Borders press freedom prize.No verdict has been announced within the official six-week time limit (which expired on 25 July) after his behind closed doors trial on 16 June by the Beijing no. 2 intermediate court.The New York Times has applied for his release and his lawyer, Guan Anping, said it was hoped the authorities would “recognise the irregularities in the case and take a just decision.”———–16.06.07 – Zhao Yan tried quickly behind closed doors, without witnesses appearing in court中文版本The way New York Times researcher Zhao Yan was tried today in Beijing on charges of divulging state secrets and fraud – behind closed doors, in just a few hours, without witnesses being questioned and with just documents being read out – was “disgraceful”, Reporters Without Borders said.“This summary trial was clearly determined by political and partisan interests and violated the most elementary defence rights,” the press freedom organisation said. “What kind of judicial system would have us believe it can try someone on such a serious charge in just one day?”Zhao’s lawyer, Mo Shaoping, told Reporters Without Borders that the trial, held before the Beijing People’s Intermediate Court No. 2, was over. “The court followed the formal procedure” but had not yet given its verdict, he said. Although no witnesses were questioned, Zhao was present and was able to speak, pleading not guilty, he said. Another defence lawyer said Zhao appeared to be in better health than during his first few months in detention.The lawyers were not supposed to comment on the trial as the charges included divulging state secrets, for which Zhao faces a possible death sentence.Zhao’s sister, Zhao Kun, asked to attend the trial but the judicial authorities refused her request. She nonetheless went to the courthouse with several friends and foreign journalists.Zhao, laureate of the 2005 Reporters Without Borders press freedom prize, was detained on 17 September 2004 for allegedly revealing to his New York Times editors, before it was officially announced, that former President Jiang Zemin was about to resign from his last political post of influence. He was formally placed under arrest a month later, on 20 October 2004. to go further ChinaAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders voices outrage about the way Zhao Yan was tried today by the Beijing People’s Intermediate Court No. 2 on charges of divulging state secrets and fraud.

Ice streams provide major drainage pathways for the Antarctic ice sheet. The stressdistribution and style of flow in such ice streams produce elastic and rheological anisotropy, whichinforms ice-flow modelling as to how ice masses respond to external changes such as global warming.Here we analyse elastic anisotropy in Rutford Ice Stream, West Antarctica, using observations of shearwavesplitting from three-component icequake seismograms to characterize ice deformation via crystalpreferredorientation. Over 110 high-quality measurements are made on 41 events recorded at fivestations deployed temporarily near the ice-stream grounding line. To the best of our knowledge, this isthe first well-documented observation of shear-wave splitting from Antarctic icequakes. The magnitudeof the splitting ranges from 2 to 80ms and suggests a maximum of 6% shear-wave splitting. The fastshear-wave polarization direction is roughly perpendicular to ice-flow direction. We consider threemechanisms for ice anisotropy: a cluster model (vertical transversely isotropic (VTI) model); a girdlemodel (horizontal transversely isotropic (HTI) model); and crack-induced anisotropy (HTI model).Based on the data, we can rule out a VTI mechanism as the sole cause of anisotropy – an HTI componentis needed, which may be due to ice crystal a-axis alignment in the direction of flow or the alignment ofcracks or ice films in the plane perpendicular to the flow direction. The results suggest a combination ofmechanisms may be at play, which represent vertical variations in the symmetry of ice crystal anisotropyin an ice stream, as predicted by ice fabric models.
