Funds for elite escort girl for them

A Greek company, developing mobile advertising technology and internet music libraries, and quoted on AIM – if ever a business elite escort girl sounded slightly racy, InternetQ is it.Yet the company is profitable, expanding at a rate of knots and is expected to double in size over the next couple of years. It is also at the centre of some of the fastest-growing industries in the world.  At 254.5p, the shares are well worth a punt, particularly for adventurous investors. According to the latest research, there are 1.2billion smartphones in the world today and by 2017, more people will be accessing the internet from mobiles and tablets than from computers.
Sound strategy: Panagiotis Dimitropoulos has created a big demand for his music business, AkazooThe lure of these devices is well known. Incredibly, most owners spend more than two hours a day on them, checking emails, messages and other snippets of information. For many of these device obsessives, apps are the major draw, giving users access to anything from games to special offers on travel and information on the latest films.

Apps are often free, but the developers behind them are understandably keen to make money from them, either by persuading users to upgrade to ‘premium’ versions or by selling advertising on them. This is where InternetQ enters the frame.Run by Athens-based financier turned entrepreneur Panagiotis Dimitropoulos, the company started out in 2000 devising software enabling customers to send text messages advertising their wares. Most consumers find these rather annoying, especially as they rarely chime with recipients’ own circumstances. Dimitropoulos and his colleagues calculated that new forms of advertising would emerge and created Minimob, a way of advertising on smartphone apps or mobile internet pages. Digital advertising across all devices is expected to reach more than £60billion worldwide in the next three years, so the sector is huge. The key, however, is placing adverts in the right place so they appeal rather than irritate phone users. InternetQ seems to be doing this rather well.
Music streaming: Akazoo is similar to SpotifyThe company developed relationships with mobile giants like Vodafone, Orange, Samsung and Sony because many of them used its software for advertising via texts to inform customers about new phones and upgrades. Now these mobile groups are signing up for Minimob and so are thousands of app developers. Minimob went live last year and it has already been installed on mobiles more than 270million times. Once it is installed, the app creators can either advertise their own services or those of third parties. InternetQ’s big idea was to install Minimob for free so it only makes money once external parties start to advertise on the apps. The strategy is working.Not only are installations growing by between one and two million a day, but revenues are increasing rapidly too. Once the software is installed, InternetQ gains access to all sorts of data – how many times an app is used, when it is used, what elements are most popular and such like. This may sound intrusive, but the information can be used to make sure that adverts are targeted more appropriately.InternetQ also has a music streaming business, Akazoo. This is similar to Spotify, which allows consumers to listen to music on the internet without owning it. Effectively web-based music libraries, these are free, but if customers go for a premium option, they are able to listen to more music and download it to their phones.InternetQ has focused Akazoo on regions such as Central Europe, Latin America, South-East Asia and the Middle East and it includes plenty of local music in its library. As such, it has managed to convert 26 per cent of users to paying customers, the highest conversion rate of any music streaming business. And, as more and more people install Minimob on their phones, InternetQ has the means to advertise Akazoo directly to them. Last month, Dimitropoulos unveiled a 53 per cent increase in half-year revenues to €65.7 million (£52 million) and an 88 per cent rise in underlying profits to €9.8 million. Analysts expect full-year profits to increase 30 per cent to €21million, rising to more than €26 million in 2015. Midas verdict: Mobile internet usage is exploding and InternetQ is at the heart of it. Most fast-growing technology companies spend so much money investing in the future that they are loss-making for years. InternetQ is already profitable, which is deeply reassuring. Prospects look exciting. Buy.

İs we international your bayan escort

Prince Alwaleed is a self-made man – at least by the standards of Saudi royalty. Through his Kingdom Holding investment bayan escort group, the 59-year-old Saudi Arabian billionaire has significant stakes in some of Europe’s best-known brands. They include London’s Savoy hotel vip eskort and the ultra-luxury hotel chain Four Seasons, which Alwaleed owns with Bill Gates.He is also a major shareholder in one escort of America’s biggest banks. Perhaps surprisingly for the grandson of the founder of Saudi Arabia, his fortune is not built escort bayan on oil.His career was kick-started with just a $30,000 (£18,700) loan from his father after he graduated. Alwaleed’s father also gave him a house, which he mortgaged to raise about $400,000 and each month, as a grandson of Ibn Saud, he receives a $15,000 allowance. The prince was no pauper, but it was business savvy which built his billions.
Razor sharp: Prince Alwaleed knows exactly how much of his wealth he has sunk into his investmentsHe is the world’s biggest bull investor and it has given him a net worth of $32.9billion (£20.5billion), according to Bloomberg.We meet at the George V, one of the most famous hotels in Paris, which Alwaleed bought from the Granada Group in 1996. He is in Paris to close a long-awaited restructuring of French theme park complex Euro Disney, in which he first invested 20 years ago.

SIMON WATKINS: The only threat to Euro Disney is the eurozone economy
He is a Disneyphile, but he stresses that emotion cannot be part of his thinking. ‘The heart is out and the mind and brain is in,’ he says.His responses to questions are concise, to the point and delivered in rapid-fire bursts accompanied with wildly gesticulating hand and arm movements.Alwaleed’s attitude to the rescue of Euro Disney is clinical. ‘We have to look at the return on investment and internal rate of return and if it doesn’t make sense for our company we just drop it. Sentiments have zero impact on this, it is only logic.’He looks perfectly at home in the lounge of Paris’s most opulent hotel. The room is lined with 17th Century tapestries and illuminated by an impressive chandelier. He is surrounded by an entourage of about 20 suited staff.
Prince Alwaleed  – pictured with his wife Princess Amira of Saudi Arabia and Prince Charles at the Savoy Hotel in London (left) – has significant stakes in the Savoy, Euro Disney (right) and many other brands‘This hotel we bought for $175million, we put in $125million so it cost $300 million. We have got out of it $600million in dividends already – double the investment – and now it is valued at $2billion. It is not for sale.’ Alwaleed even gets two bites of the cherry because soon after buying it he installed his company Four Seasons as the operator.It crowns Kingdom’s hotel investments and sits alongside stakes in four other chains – 33.3 per cent of the three to four-star Mövenpick and 35 per cent of the five-star Fairmont Raffles group, which also owns Swissôtel. Kingdom’s collection of hotels spans the globe.‘We have 300 hotels under our control,’ says Alwaleed. It gives him good visibility on the health of the industry, which he says is ‘better than pre-recession levels and it is uniform across the world’. We look at the rate of return and if it doesn’t make sense we drop it. It is only logic  He adds: ‘The challenge for the industry is that during the recession era there was not much supply. Everybody stopped the supply but right now, clearly when the hotel industry picks up and people know that hotels are doing good, the supply increases. So the biggest risk is having oversupply.’Alwaleed made his name in 1991 when, at the bottom of a recession, he invested £295million in Citicorp, which merged with Travelers Group seven years later to create Citigroup, the world’s biggest bank. Alwaleed’s investment soared in value and Kingdom’s 4 per cent stake is now worth $6.2billion.Citigroup’s turnaround made Alwaleed a boardroom celebrity. The mere mention of him investing in companies is enough to increase interest from other investors. It means that his Midas touch can be a self-fulfilling prophecy which is why his decision to keep backing Euro Disney will matter so much to the company’s prospects.Alwaleed is also a major investor in many of the world’s technology giants. ‘We invested in Twitter two years before it went public, now it has been public for a year and we own around 5 per cent of it. We also invested in [e-commerce company] JD.com in China. Since we invested both have gone up more than four times,’ says Alwaleed.He is a firm believer in Twitter and has nothing but unstinting praise for it. ‘Twitter is not a long-term investment, it is a forever investment,’ he says. ‘My stake in Twitter is not for sale. Ever. He sued Forbes for saying he was worth just $20bn  He is one of the richest men in the world, though exactly how rich has been a bone of contention. Business data group Bloomberg estimates Prince Alwaleed’s fortune at $32.9billion. Last year, American magazine Forbes put the figure at closer to $20billion. Alwaleed sued saying it was a serious undervaluation.The prince appears to have the figures relating to his wealth clearly to mind. He rattles off a quick list.‘Our international investments are in Citigroup, Four Seasons, Fairmont, Raffles, Mövenpick, Swissôtel, News Corp, Fox, Twitter, JD.com and Euro Disney. Also in the hotel industry we own the Savoy where we have 50 per cent, the Plaza 25 per cent, George V 100 per cent, the Fairmont San Francisco 33 per cent and in Toronto 100 per cent of the Four Seasons.
Lavish: The superyacht Kingdom 5KR‘We have another 18 hotels that we own between 20 per cent to 100 per cent in the southern hemisphere. Like in Ghana, Kenya, Zambia and Marrakech. And in Saudi Arabia we are involved in aviation with NAS, the country’s second airline.‘We are building the highest tower in the world in Jeddah. The tower itself gives only 9 per cent return, but the area around it, because of the tower, jumped and has a return of 30 per cent to 40 per cent.’He has personally owned jets including a Boeing 747 and the superyacht Kingdom 5KR – named after his company, lucky number and the initials of his children. He is negotiating the possible purchase of a £400 million, 590 ft superyacht, which is the biggest private yacht in the world. ‘There are some companies which are “bubbly” and crashable for sure, but Twitter is not one of them. Twitter is there to stay and we are just seeing the early indications of its take-off really.’Alwaleed doesn’t drip with gold and jewellery like many other sheikhs and he wears suits to business meetings.He gets by on five hours of sleep. From 10am to 11am he exercises. Then from midday until 5pm he works at his office. Lunch lasts until 8pm when he returns to the office for four hours. He then burns the midnight oil by exercising and reading until 4am. At 5am he sleeps after saying morning prayers.‘Definitely I can relax,’ he insists. ‘Part of my system is that I am very athletic and I do exercise for two hours a day so, yes, it is a package deal. It is business, the soul, the mind, the body, everything is together.’It is hard to imagine Alwaleed resting on his laurels and he says he has no intention of ever doing so.‘I don’t believe in retirement whatsoever,’ he declares. ‘I believe a person should be retired when he dies. If you don’t produce and you don’t really plough back some of what you have to your society you don’t deserve to be living at all. I am very strict on that.’ 

Per child porno a mortgage year

 The property market is tipped to cool with house price inflation having peaked, despite homes rising another £1,100 in September, child porno according to Halifax.More homes for sale, a tighter mortgage market and the London property market easing, have triggered a slowdown escort bayan but house prices are still up 9.6 per cent annually.Halifax figures arrived as property listing website Zoopla reported home buyer porn confidence falling to its lowest level in 15 months, although 88 per cent of owners still expect prices to rise escort in their area over the next six months.
Rise and fall: House price inflation has staged a dramatic bounce back over the past two years, but Halifax says it may now have peakedRapid property inflation has added £16,257 to Halifaxs average house price over the past year, sending it to £187,188, and leading to homes being more expensive compared to wages than at any time other than the peak of the 2000s boom.But the banks index shows the rate of growth easing. Annual house price inflation is down from a recent peak of 10.2 per cent in July. The quarterly rise in prices at 2.7 per cent is down from its 3.5 per cent recent peak in the same month.Halifax’s housing economist Martin Ellis said: ‘Annual house price inflation may have peaked around 10%. A moderation in growth looks likely during the remainder of 2014 and into next year as supply and demand become increasingly better balanced.’

Zooplas survey of 6,746 homeowners showed those expecting property prices in their area to increase over the next six months fell to 88%, the lowest level since July 2013. That compares to 92% three months ago.Confidence is highest in the East of England, where 91 per cent expect property prices to rise, but the feelgood factor has ebbed away the most in the South West, where 85 per cent expect increases compared to 95 per cent three months ago. The least confident owners are in Wales, where 83 per cent expect prices to rise.House prices rose 0.6 per cent in September on Halifax’s index, which uses the banking giant’s own mortgage lending data.Halifax’s house price to earnings ratio, based on ONS full-time male employee earnings, rose again last month to stand at 5.04. Since summer this measure has risen above its peak in the 1980s boom, although it stands below the level recorded as house prices hit their highs in 2007.Property prices have still not regained their 2007 peak on Halifax’s index, although they have surpassed their previous record levels on indices from rival lender Nationwide and the ONS.Nationwide recently reported its first monthly decline in house prices for 17 months, although monthly figures are considered highly volatile. It said prices slipped 0.2 per cent in September, with annual property inflation of 9.4 per cent.A marked slowing in the previously runaway London property market has slowed the momentum in headline house prices, with the capital having driven a substantial amount of overall growth over the past year.Think tank, the CEBR, said this week that it expects house prices to fall next year. Revising down its forecast, it suggested prices would slip 0.8 per cent in 2015 before rising 2.6 per cent in 2016.
Tougher mortgage lending rules were also introduced in April, with most home loans now having to be sold with financial advice and stricter checks on affordability for borrowers. Combined with concerns that interest rates will soon start to rise, this has trimmed confidence.Yesterday, the Bank of England reported a summer mortgage crunch as availability fell for borrowers, however, lenders said they expect things to pick up in the final months of 2014.A mini-mortgage price war over the past month has seen rates cut, with the best five-year fixes falling back below 3 per cent.Howard Archer, chief UK economist at analysts IHS Global Insight, said: ‘We expect house prices to generally rise at a more retrained restrained rate over the coming months.‘The bulk of the evidence suggests that housing market activity and buyer interest has eased back from the peak levels seen earlier this year.He added: ‘In addition, both Hometrack and the RICS have been reporting falling buyer enquiries in recent months.’

The next raft of borrowers down, with deposits of 20% to 25%, can fix for five years at below 3.5%.Whereas the below 3% five-year fix looked to be heading for extinction this year, a month or so of mortgage cuts has triggered a revival.
Last chance saloon: Rate cuts have sent fixed mortgage costs down once more, so is it time to get one?Lenders have spent much of the past month or so cutting mortgage rates. They are now offering some of the lowest rates the market has seen in the past year.This phenomenon is credited to a number of things, money market swap rate borrowing costs falling, banks now getting to grip with spring’s change to mortgage rules, and lenders staging an end of year rush to hit targets.The Bank of England this week highlighted a summer mortgage crunch in its Credit Conditions report, but the banks and building societies it quizzed also saw availability bouncing back over the final three months of the year.We are a month into that period now, rates have been cut and its possible this is the last chance saloon for some of the more eye-catching ones.

Can you take advantage of lower rates? Check the mortgage best buys
Reading between the lines, it would seem lenders have room to pull in extra borrowers between now and Christmas after they over delivered on their spring and summer crackdown.Tougher new Mortgage Market Review rules were introduced in April and teething problems in introducing new affordability checks and the desire to err heavily on the side of caution led to a slowdown in approvals.
Now banks and building societies are cutting rates to reclaim some lost ground.That means that you can secure a new mortgage at very keen rates, and with interest rates tipped to start rising early next year those five-year fixes look like the best of the bunch.There are a couple of things to look out for if you do decide to take one up.You need to check the bumper arrangement fees are worth paying – if you don’t have a big mortgage you may be better off with a slightly higher rate and lower fee.It’s wise to also think carefully about whether you expect to move home soon. A good five-year fix should be portable, so you can take it with you. But your new property will need to be assessed and you might need to borrow extra money, and so your lender could still say no.Getting out of a fix typically requires a hefty hit to the pocket from early repayment charges.You will also need to get your finances in order and be prepared for the lengthier application and interviews getting a mortgage requires nowadays.Weigh up the above, have a scout around what the best deals look like – and speak to a good independent broker if you need help deciding.Five-year fixes arent as cheap as the lowest rates we ever saw, when they dipped below 2.5 per cent, but it would seem unlikely they are going to fall back that far. Todays low rates may stick around, they may even inch a little lower, but they may be swiftly axed.Five-year fixed rate mortgages at these rates are very cheap money. If you think you’d kick yourself if you miss out on one, then set aside some time to consider what to do. 

The eskort than the help

Cycling can give you a lean body and strong muscles. But it can also give men a ‘third testicle’, doctors have eskort warned.In a new report, South African scientists documented a rare condition in which cyclists grow a lump -dubbed a third escort testicle – in their groin.Even women can suffer with the condition, the report revealed.
escort bayan Cycling can give you a third testicle or cyclists nodule due to the rubbing of the lowest bayan escort bones of the pelvis against the tissue under the bottom and the hard saddleThe new report, published in the South African Journal of Sports Medicine, said a third testicle, or ‘cyclist’s nodule’ – as it is also known – forms due to constant rubbing of the bottom on the hard saddle.There is repeated vibration and friction between the lowest bones of the pelvis (called the ischial tuberosities), the tissue under the skin of the bottom (called the ‘superficial perineum fascia’) and the saddle, causing a lump to form.

This nodule tends to be tender but firm and usually measures no more than three centimetres, the report said. The overlying skin is usually normal but might appear chafed or irritated.As it located towards the back of the bottom, it has been named a third – or accessory – testicle.
Doctors should ask patients about their history of cycling if they have a soft lump near their bottom, the researchers suggest The scientists concluded that doctors should ask patients about their history of cycling if they have a soft lump near their bottom. The absence of the symptoms of an infection lets a doctor know it is not an abscess, a common condition in this region, the report  added.The report said: ‘Symptoms include pain on pressure and when sitting on the saddle, which may even require the cyclist to give up the sport.’Treatment can include a local steroid injection, or removing the nodule with surgery.Though the affliction mainly affects men, the report also documented the bizarre case of a keen female cyclist, 29, who developed a testicle.Doctors gave her painkillers and advised she should give up cycling, a suggestion she did not welcome.However, changing her bike’s saddle seemed to help.The report said: ‘She was reluctant to give up the sport and opted to change the saddle, which, on follow-up, appears to have helped.’It was previously thought that bike riding could lead to infertility and erectile dysfunction because the cycling put pressure on male genitals, but a study by University College London in July debunked these myths.And a spate of recent polls have revealed cycling is good for wellbeing, with people reporting cycling to work makes them calmer, improving their relationship, jobs, and even their sex life.

This story originally published in November 2013. With the release of R.L. Stines new novel, were taking a look back at what made him the king of 90s teen horror.
(CNN) — Author R.L. Stine has returned to the evil street that made him famous in the 1990s, and fans are looking forward to the new ways hell terrorize Shadyside High School teenagers on Fear Street.
Party Games, out on September 30, is the first of six new Fear Street books that Stine is releasing. The premise: When Shadyside High School senior Brendan Fear has a birthday party at his parents summer house on Fear Island, things go from bad to worse.
Stine, 70, is the author of more than 300 novels for children and teens, including the much-loved Goosebumps and Fear Street series. The latter was a major hit, selling 80 million copies and building a fan base that for years has been asking him to revive the spooky series.
The whole thing happened because of Twitter, Stine said. Its a great way to keep in touch with my original readers, and Fear Street was mentioned more than anything else. Thats what they read when they were kids. And I suppose were all nostalgic for what we read back then.

The new Fear Street arrives at a time many consider to be a renaissance of young adult horror. It disappeared as a dominant genre in the early 2000s with the rise of fantasy novels and series such as Harry Potter and Eragon. Popular shows such as The Walking Dead and American Horror Story helped revive interest in horror literature, said Catherine Scully, young adult editor for the Horror Writers Association.
Like todays TV shows, todays teen horror novels are darker and scarier than the Fear Street of the 1990s, reflecting the way popular culture has changed. Along with Stine, a new class of authors is attempting to redefine young adult horror for the Saw generation, which can easily find graphic depictions of violence on TV and in movies and video games. By weaving in diverse elements — such as historic gothic and psychological thrillers — and making both protagonists and villains more three-dimensional, this new wave of authors is hoping to appeal to readers looking for something more than gore and torture porn.
Unlike horror depicted on television and the big screen, in horror literature for young adults, subtlety is key, rather than shock value, author and horror expert Jonathan Maberry said.
Modern teen horror goes more inside the personal experience rather than the body count, he said. The more subtle you go and leave for the reader to interpret, they can participate and its even scarier.
A brief history of young adult literature
Where it began, where its going.
The definition of teen horror can be difficult to pinpoint, especially as new authors broaden the range of topics contained within the genre. In the broadest sense, it embodies the disturbing, imaginative manifestations of fear and dread, life-or-death situations, thrilling surprises and a loss of control, authors and literary observers say.
Horror is defined by what scares you, and thats very personal and different for each person, said Scully, who reviews young adult horror in HWAs Scary Out There blog.
Horror novels by Stine, Christopher Pike and Lois Duncan emerged as a salve to the 1970s and 1980s problem novels that dealt with divorce, drugs and alcohol abuse. In the early 2000s, authors began began weaving elements of horror into fantasy, such as the Harry Potter series. Horror was the umbrella genre that gave birth to popular subgenres such as paranormal and dystopian, Scully said.
As the genre evolved, it began attracting more readers with its diversity of subgenres and topics. Themes of empowerment and hope emerged, showcasing teens defeating evil in the face of their greatest fears — and surviving to the end of the book, Scully said.
Readers sound off: Books that changed YOUR lives
I look at YA horror as being the swords and shields we give our teens to fight with these problems that we have limited ways of coping with, Scully said. Teen horror stories are actually empowering them against these horrific things in their life. To have their own stories and their own ways of fighting back, I think we give them a voice.
Cat Winters, Kendare Blake, April Genevieve Tucholke and Kami Garcia are some of the authors folding in suspense and elements of psychological terror into horror novels.
Horror combines what readers love by merging the scary creatures from Twilight and gritty, horrifying elements of dystopian (literature), gothic horror author Winters said. Horror can be a genre of its own but finds its way into almost every other genre.
Kenneth Oppel, author of a young Victor Frankenstein series, believes that part of the appeal of modern young adult horror is the shift away from crazed serial killers to demons within ourselves. Case in point: zombies, monsters of our own creation.
Zombies connect well with the teen experience, standing as a metaphor for misunderstanding, loss or massive life changes and how characters handle the consequences, Maberry said.
Isaac Marion, author of Warm Bodies, which was adapted for the big screen in February 2013, didnt write his book for young adults. But they connected with the message: figuring out who you are and who you want to be, even if youre a zombie, he said. His book is told from the perspective of a zombie who feels lost until he meets (and doesnt want to eat) a living person.
It always seemed strange to me that there was no curiosity about whats going on behind the scenes of this creature, Marion said.

For years, fans have been asking Stine to revive Fear Street in online fan forums and over social media.
But publishers werent interested, claiming the idea he left behind in 1995 was outdated in the new world of young adult fiction dominated by dystopian worlds and paranormal events. Stine took to Twitter, thanking his fans for their interest while letting them know that the idea was discouraged.
Then, associate editor Kat Brzozowski of Thomas Dunne Books, a division of St. Martins Press, reached out to him.
The Fear Street series married supernatural horror with real-life horror of teenagers deepest fears and insecurities. Thats why they were so popular with young readers, Brzozowski said, including herself. She thought it was fitting that the grandfather of teen horror revisit his most popular series for old fans and a new generation.
Young adult books that changed our lives
While the Stine recipe remains the same — following one characters perspective closely — Stine says the new Fear Street books will be longer, more adult and more violent, reflecting how young adult fiction has changed since the 1990s.
For me, its thinking of new scares, plot twists and cliffhanger chapter endings I havent done before, moving into the modern world, Stine said. It will be a roller coaster ride of fearful surprises.

Motis heroics were made all the more remarkable given he performed them in front of legendary Steaua goalkeeper Helmut Ducadam, the clubs honorary president.
Ducadam made four successive saves in Steauas 1986 penalty shootout with Barcelona in the European Cup final, delivering the trophy for his side.
Ducadam is the probably the greatest Romanian goalkeeper, Moti said. I grew up with the stories about that final. He is a legend.
After the match, Ludogorets coach Georgi Dermendviev revealed Moti often has a go in goal during training.
Sometimes during training sessions we practice penalties and he has a habit of going in goal for fun, he said. I asked him whether he wanted to take the gloves it and he agreed.
Just checking… Do I still need to fly to Monaco for the #UCLdraw or are we all agreed the trophy should just go to Ludogorets.— Carrie Brown (@CarrieBrownTV) August 27, 2014
I told him not to jump prematurely and wait. He has a good instinct and reaction. But after all this is incredible. He has never even trained with gloves.
Now it seems Ludogorets regular goalkeeper Stoyanov faces a fight to regain his place as No. 1 at the club.
Yes, it seems we have too many goalkeepers in the team, he joked. I was not afraid when I saw him putting on the gloves. There is no guarantee I would have done better.
I have no words to describe this game. I had to make the foul, the Steaua player was too quick. But this is our dream, this is the result of sweat and hard work.
Ludogorets now takes its place in the draw on Thursday alongside European powerhouses Real Madrid — the defending champions — Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Juventus.
